  1. He was no one, Just another apostate with less than subpar intellect who gained fame through insulting Islam
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. "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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. why thanks, this is exactly the type of book I was looking for Thanks again for keeping this topic in mind.
  9. 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
  10. Idk if Trump will run for presidency in 2024 2024 will be far more different than 2016
  11. Well let's hope things are going to turn for the better now Turkey seems to have mediated successfully between Russia and Ukraine. Quite impressive, no matter what I might think of him Erdogan's diplomacy is brilliant.
  12. This pic alone is worth a deep analysis for anyone that follows Iran and the politics of its SL, it shows that the relationship between Russia and Iran is no longer a begrudging alliance where both parties would eye each other distrustfully.
  13. I don't honestly think Peterson is controlled opposition, the biggest thing that discredits him is his lack of creed and extremely vague affiliation. I think the professor is just too burned out, a big reason why he shoot up to fame was because of the infamous Channel 6 interview it wasn't his own intellect or philosophical merit that brought him his fame even though he does have some intellect. I want to point out something as well, he is (or was?) a clinical psychiatrist for many years and working with mentally irregular people must have taken its toll on him .. Other than what's happened to him in 2020 you can notice that there is something quite off about him mentally
  14. We're not talking about an ordinary case here, the mother grew up in a conservative terrain whereas the daughter grew up in Canada no less. I'd try some small, innocent acts that will bring the mother and daughter together, and I would also try to make the mother micromanage her less .. the daughter is going to be a mother herself soon (Inshallah) so she must have her own 'space'. Besides, nobody responds well to micromanagement at any case. Honestly, this seems to be a regular misunderstanding (of which Social Media is the number one to blame) that may have gone too far only because the daughter doesn't respond well to the mother's interventions. I would take extra caution not to let the mother antagonise her.
  15. Exactly, that´s how mounaifqueen get a foothold in the religion, by giving them free reign to do, say and judge as they please since it is ´not acceptable´ to call them kuffar even if they do not abide by the religion they claim allegiance to.
  16. I hope I´m not intruding but is the relationship between the mother and daughter a good one? sounds like your daughter is a bit rebellious so she may be a bit antagonised from her mother´s intervention. As to the issues between her and her husband in and of of themselves, were it up to me I´d suggest they cease social media use, simply because an it´s harming an otherwise (seemingly) good union. There are countless arguments as to why Social Media is more harm than good but arguing with a woman will get you nowhere. Maybe have a sit with both of them and explain how contaminating social media is? women mostly copy what people in their vicinity do so if people close to her stop using social media she´ll follow. Have you made an effort to get to know what type of acquaintances she is making? her friends are probably the biggest influence on her so I´d make sure they at least as religious, if not maybe try to find a group or gathering where she could find one? could a Hussiyniah حسينية be nearby?
  17. Thank you for such a well formatted effort. My suggestion had to do with the fact that there is a mountain of disinformation about Shias and show if I were to introduce books that specifically handle the topics most relevant to the Shias it would be better. Though I think you´ve done more than enough, I´ll be sure to give these books a read myself.
  18. I don't think that such a question could be answered simply. Historical events that have nothing to do with demography, religion or the laws of the country play a big role in shaping this. Now keeping this in mind. I want to point out something, many people think of the Iranian society as a very pious one .. I don't think this is false per say; however, if you were to make contact with the average Iranians on the internet or even see how women dress in the streets of Tehran, I don't think you'd call them very Islamic.
  19. I believe the good doctor has had invaluable content that I myself owe a great deal of the positive progression towards becoming who I always want to be to. He also demonstrated bravery numerous times politically, his reaction to the enforcement of LGBTQ Pronouns and his political views are one of the more rationale and mature of the Western academia and also, more relevant to us his sympathetic views towards us. However, personally it seems to me he has become more of a politician rather than an intellectual recently, this video for example feels more like a politician making a petition rather than a professor and a clinical psychiatrist making a plea for dialogue. His also praises the Abraham records and calls it a step for attaining peace amongst the 'Abrahamic religions'. Doesn't he know that most Muslims reject this shameful collaboration?
  20. Salam Title explains it, How would you introduce Shia fiqh فقه (The difference in Wudu وضوء for example) and essential beliefs such as: the importance of the twelve imams, why are they held in such high regard? why are they infallible? Also a good simplified book for Tafsir تفسير of Quran would be highly appreciated .. I would think such a book would be ideal to combat the slanders against Shias.
  21. There are many reasons why such behaviours would be punishable, here are a few 1- You devalue the act and create a stigma around it by criminalising it, social pressure has a healthy effect because it ensures that even those who are ignorant of the side effects of the deed would be discouraged to partake in it 2- These actions never only ´harm yourself´, in the example your provided you would end up severely harming your marriage, the specific details are well-known and the evidence is very much available, your wife has rights which you are required to fulfill. This act could single-handedly destroy a marriage and subject children to trauma 3- By criminalising the behaviour, every small clog in the machine is guilty, to elaborate: If I am a drug dealer and I exploit your son´s misery by selling him drugs, I have committed a crime against him and potentially ruined his life forever. Because Drugs is haram you would easily blame me for my actions and hold me responsible .. If it weren´t for this Islamic ruling I would simply tell you that it is acceptable for me to profit from his misery and that this was no abuse.
  22. I think she is appalled from his behaviour. i.e. he is engaged, yet stares at women with intent and has perused her without telling her that he was engaged. Anyway, I don´t think such behaviour is halal. Sadly I can´t refer to a hadith in this instant.
  23. Wahhabism is backed by a rich country which has (at least until fairly recently) had the green light to spread its ideology. Look at the TV channels, Social media, etc. Shias are always attacked and defamed and Shia channels have little reach compared to Gulf-funded channels Most of the time it´s straw man arguing but considering it´s the Middle East that´s not surprising. Arabs in the Middle East are embarrassingly gullible, at least politically .. all it takes is one Fatwa and you will have tens of thousands of sheeple following orders (Look at Syria).
  24. That's interesting, because I do hear about some people (who are more motivated by religious reasons) who immigrate and live in Iran. Personally, I would jump at the chance to go there and see places like Isfahan and Mashhad and get a feel of the country myself. Though I don't think living there would be a realistic alternative, for many reasons .. not least of all the situation there. Western civilisation was at its zenith when it the West was Western Christendom and not The Free Western world. This LGBTQ madness and moral descendance was inevitable the moment society norms and political ideology divorced religion .. you simply can't have a society that utterly shuns god and expect it to adhere to morals. Fully agreed on the family part, I would never start a family there even if it were my only option
  25. Wonderful question. I would´ve loved to share my views, had I been born in a Western country or immigrated to one. I often wonder if people in the West would prefer to immigrate to more Islamic countries.
