  1. Not at all I was born and raised in a Sunni-majority country, all my life I've been taught that Shias are enemies of Islam and that they are ignorant about it. I would always try to ask questions about Shias but I would receive no answers. Years later and here I am, reading Shia books and literature to find out more Sometimes I still get the feeling that I'm wrong, that I've strayed from the right path and have become a kaffir. But I tell myself the only way to get rid of this feeling it to read more about Shia Islam and sometimes this soothes me.
  2. If everyone is a leader, then who's going to follow? If you are a leader you have authority which must be intertwined with accountability. You must also be decisive and static, so you can't tiptoe around certain matters, you must take a decision When you do this, you must handle the repercussions of your actions and stand by them In a union between a man and a woman, which one of them fits this description more?
  3. Ironically the sanctions helped Putin all the more. Now Russians are convinced that he was right to mistrust and alienate the West and that this is an all-out war against them. I think the sanctions are only affecting the technological sector of Russia but I don't think its government cares, aside from the military which probably isn't affected since they import all their gadgets from Germany which will never be on board with this madness.
  4. I'm learning Persian atm and the grammar is a piece of cake. The hardest part is listening, Spoken Persian (Tahroni Persian in particular) is very hard because it doesn't follow the grammar rules and to me seems arbitrary, it is also spoken in a fast manner Building up the vocabulary is also hard though not so much as listening
  5. You have my sympathies as I can relate to your situation. You are a strong person for adhering to your beliefs even though it's not easy, it must be hard I hope Allah helps you and you find a partner with whom you can live side by side guided by your faith
  6. He was no one, Just another apostate with less than subpar intellect who gained fame through insulting Islam
  7. Michaela Peterson herself has no content to provide, ever since she started her channel she's been only as successful as far she's been able to leech off her father. Her channel might as well be just another girl reactions channel
  8. The way I see it: Good was triumphant through defeat Evil earned everlasting shame through victory Hussien didn't lose the war, he stood his ground even though the entire world turned its back on him Him and his companions of Ahlu-al-Bayt may have died that day, but they are still alive today when we mourn them, for every place is Karbala and every day is Ashura God honoured Hussein ((عليه السلام)), for he died in battle by swords and arrows, in a manner so audacious and appalling that no true Muslim could accept. It is irrefutable that Hussein's cause was righteous. He is more alive today than many men; death brought him eternal life.
  9. Get past it as much as you can, limit your interactions Sounds like your mother has been through a lot, still it is no justification for wishing her children ill Do not just take it, it WILL affect you negatively. Best solution is life away of her but do NOT neglect her.
  10. "من كنت مولاه فعلي مولاه اللهم وال من والاه وعاد من عاداه وانصر من نصره واخذل من خذله وأدر الحق معه كيف ما دار" 'Whoever follows me must follow him [Ali] oh god be guardian over those who follow him, be an enemy to those who take him [Ali] as an enemy, aid those who aid him, hinder those who hinder him and let justice commence wherever he commences' This sentence made me contemplate much about Ali ((عليه السلام)) and his status even though I was never raised as a Shia. I don't see how anyone could read it and not be convinced of Ali ((عليه السلام)) 's status and significance; for the prophet has honoured him and only him with such words.
  11. I think he's trying to walk on eggshells for the sake of his audience; he famously refused to answer whether he actually believed in god (could be because he genuinely believe in his argument about believing in god) He's probably conflicted because of his academic background and knowledge.
  12. Glad to know I could offer sound advice. The husband's position is understandable but inshallah everything works out. I wish the couple good luck
  13. why thanks, this is exactly the type of book I was looking for Thanks again for keeping this topic in mind.
  14. It´s already far worse right now, though I think by 2024 the US hegemony will have diminished to the point where it wouldn´t matter anymore
  15. Idk if Trump will run for presidency in 2024 2024 will be far more different than 2016
