  1. Wow. I can't believe you said that. Can I get you banned with this quote? Wait let me check my DjibrilCisse banning manual: HOW TO BAN YOUR FELLOW MUSLIM By Molana DijbrilCisse How to ban a Muslim: 1) Make up as much nonsense as possible. Don’t bother worrying about the truth because then your banning will fail. This can be done by: a. Acting as an authority on that person’s material without actually reading it. b. Misquote or do not fully quote the person you wish to ban. c. Ideally you want to bridge two sentences together that belong in two different paragraphs. 2) Create a PDF file tha
  2. I'm glad people like you exist. You show the rest of us what not to be. B) OHHH NOOOOOOO!!!!! Molana DjibrilCisse is going to report me to the mujtahids and get me banned!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH :!!!:
  3. It was my intention to leave this issue with that last dialogue, but it is apparent by your subtle personal attacks that you don't wish too. I won't accomodate you in that respect as I did before. I will say that it is unfortunate you have given Agha Sistani the level of importance that only the Ahlul-Bayt deserve. You have choosen not to question your mujtahid and that is your right. I just think you need to re-evaluate the possibility of fallible leadership regarding a mujtahid. The circumstances that exist require that much. I do question the credibilty of what is going on. It is app
  4. My opinion is my right and whether you deem to call it is professional or qualified is completely irrelevant. I presented the facts and that seems is too much for you to handle. I expected this from you. Indeed you have a point. But let me be more specific from my previous posting. The MAJORITY of Shias do not have a problem with Dr. Sachedina. So my approach of "majority rules" does apply here. And that is a fact. :P REALLY. After reading what you have said all you have done is stated your opinion with no proof of what you claim. I am not saying you can't. But beyond hearsay you h
  5. (bismillah) (salam) Interesting thing about Dr. Sachedina's recitations is that there is only a small group of Muslims that do not invite him. That small group are the majority of the Khojah/Shia Ithna-Ashiris communities of Toronto, London, and East Africa. The fact of the matter is that he speaks everywhere else including the mosque of Imam Reza (as) in Mashad, Iran. There is proof of this. I spoke to the webmaster for islamiclearning.org and two of the five Muharram 2005 lectures they have occurred there. I find it interesting that we sit here arguing on whether Dr. Sachedina can spe
  6. (salam) Indeed. My fault. The point of this discussion is about Dr. Sachedina's article. BTW, those lectures from Middlesex are really good. There are more articles and lecture files at www.islamiclearning.org. Once again my apologies to the author of this thread.... ws
  7. Change to Shia? Right, I get it. In Islam we are Shia, Sunni, and Muslim. Or are we in fact just Muslims!!! I just can't understand what people are thinking when they say" we need to convert sunnis to shias." For how long are we going to keep that mentality and divide our greater global community? It is not a clue that for all these years, things have not changed and will not change. We should concentrate on strengthening our community rather then dividing it. It's bad enought that Muslims are hated around the world to also have that hate within our Ummah. Mandela the Muslim
  8. you're kidding right? it is not possible that you could deny history written by Sunni and Shia historians documenting how much of a useless individual Yazid was.
  9. Found these lectures to be good: http://www.sicm.org.uk/audio.php?p=Profess...Muharram%201427
  10. Good stuff on this site: http://www.islamiclearning.org/multimedia.htm
  11. I have many Sunni friends that respect Ashura just as much as we do. You definitely need a reality check....
  12. I agree. I know many Sunnis that do recognize what happened in Karbala and in fact take part in Muharram events.
  13. (salam) Salaams to all. I was interested in learning more about the differences in prayer between shias and sunnis. I am looking for historical resources or even commentary regarding the following issues. For starters: 1) The folding of the hands 2) The disappearance of (bismillah) at the start of the prayers. ws
  14. yeah your right. it's not that I am interested in fighting this stupid fight anymore. i just dislike when the truth, which can be derived from simple research, is skewed for the mere reason to slander someone. my own rule has always been, if you are going to dislike someone do it for the right reasons. after all you will be accountable in the end. i guess i am too idealistic.... ws
  15. That is not true. Dr. Sachedina has recieved formal training in a Hawza. Check your sources.....
