  1. Freedom of press is very important that's why the United States and other "progressive" countries do their best to insure websites like wikileaks have a terrible time. In the US when a blogger posts something that isn't also being said by the lamestream media it doesn't get much coverage. When a blog post from Iran is seen in the United States however it is "an inside look into the real Iran" and is picked up by news stations across the US. Once in a while a man with a reputation will speak like Edward Snowden and he'll get the people talking, you best be sure they'll chase him around the globe like rabid dogs. I don't agree with Iran's treatment of online journalists, but some perspective is important. Every country has it's secrets, some are better at keeping them from the people. This thing you call "freedom" is an illusion no matter where you are.
  2. (salam) (bismillah) If you are interested in solely cardio or fat loss: A jump rope should be ample however you can get a treadmill or elliptical if you wish. Treadmills burn calories the fastest in my experience however they have the potential to do a number on your knees so make sure to read up on how to minimize the damage, for example keeping the treadmill on a slight incline is said to be better for the knees. If you are interested in packing on muscle: Don't spend your money on machines. I highly recommend you get a gym membership first and learn a little, if you have the dedication and the know-how you are much more likely to fully reap the benefits of the equipment you purchase. Once you have the basics down get yourself: a barbell + some weight plates, dumbbells with removable weights— if you are interested in adjustable dumbbells DO NOT GET THE Bowflex ones, get powerblocks—, an adjustable bench, a squat cage. The squat cage is versatile and can be used to bench press, squat, do shrugs, over head presses, pull ups etc.. If you could give me a rough budget and how much space you have available I can change my suggestion accordingly because — at least for now— I am pretty much shooting in the dark. Also, I suggest you purchase used equipment, it will save you a lot of money. Good Luck,
  3. (salam) (bismillah) That link should answer your question. http://www.islamic-l...andIstehlak.htm
  4. (salam) (bismillah) You guys need to learn some respect. It's hard to believe this is the same Shiachat I used to spend so much time on five years ago.
  5. (salam) (bismillah) You are going to kill them? Such a decision would not benefit anyone, not even yourself. Listen to your parents, they are wise people. Anyone can muster up the courage to fight back, few can muster up the courage to forgive. Your parents have faith in a greater justice, executed by the greatest power in the universe— Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì. Be patient. If you want, you can talk to some of the members of your extended family and ask them why they tortured you and your family so much. Don't do anything violent unless you want them spared on the day of judgement. Just wait.
  6. (salam) (bismillah) Equality has one set definition, the definition of equity may differ based on culture, religion etc but not the definition of equality. Regarding your signature "The truth is with a syed from his syeds", don't you think that is a little overboard? Flaunting your status as a syed does not do you any good. The respect you earn is because your forefathers were great people who protected the religion of Islam with their lives. As for my forefathers, they could have been: Kings, Monks, farmers, or they could even be descendants of Hazrat Fatima (as); the fact that no one will know or cares to know just goes to show how insignificant such a relation is to my status. There is no anatomical or physiological difference between the both of us, we both came into being and we will both die one day. I would also like to add that you are not Imam Ali's (as) son, you are the son of his son of his son etc... That is like saying I am the son of a prophet, I am actually the son of a son of a son of a son of a prophet etc.. So long as you continue to be this pretentious, you will only cause hate to spew from others. Those who are humble about not only their lineage— which makes no difference— but also their deeds, are worth respecting. If one finds it necessary to point out that they are syed to every person they meet, it shows that they are not confident in their deeds and must resort to that of their forefather's to earn the respect of others. Respect is something you must earn, not something you can inherit.
  7. (salam) (bismillah) The problem of evil does not disprove the existence of god, the same way the issue probability cannot confirm the aforementioned existence. The problem of evil uses abductive reasoning, a method which cannot guarantee a correct conclusion. Though your argument is logical I think you haven't focused too much on the all-knowing aspect. If you have no disease then the population will grow rapidly and the earth will be depleted of its resources —eventually everything will die. If the human mind is made such that no evil exists, then our freewill is taken away and suddenly everything is predetermined. Also our idea of "evil" in some cases may differ from that of God's, heck it even varies from human to human based on the era and culture. Just throwing out some of my ideas with the hope that it will trigger conversation. In all honesty I see nothing from either side that would sweep someone off of their feet. There is more thinking to do and both sides have their own biases that are difficult to overcome.
  8. (salam) (bismillah) Dogs are social animals that crave affection. It is better not to keep dogs at all because they can't be given the love/attention they crave if they are kept separate from you. Sorry to anyone that wants a dog, but if you really like dogs I am sure you will realize that an Islamic home is not where they belong. However, if you must keep a dog for protection or hunting I recommend you try to spend some time with it so it doesn't hate you.
  9. (salam) (bismillah) Actually the earth's rotation would just have to change to the opposite direction which if I am not mistaken is clockwise. Once it had rotated sufficiently it would continue to go in it's normal direction. The thing is, if the earth were to stop spinning abruptly, the inertia would probably toss people —depending on where you are— kilometers away.
  10. (salam) (bismillah) I don't think calling him "revolting" makes you sound like the victim.
  11. (salam) (bismillah) Can you pm me the gist of it if you have it off the top of your head?
  12. (salam) (bismillah) I sincerely apologize on behalf of non-syeds if they have mistreated you in anyway however I would like to challenge a few of your points which I have bolded. 1) Equality is not an exclusively western value, it should be universal. 2) Calling yourself special because of your bloodline will not help you get sympathy from non-syeds. 3) I am sure you are not Imam Ali's son. Unfortunately in opening this thread you have— though not on purpose— created a separation in which one party is claiming to be oppressed by another, never a good idea if you are seeking peaceful discussion. The Jewish people in the state of Israel make similar claims to you as they claim to be chosen by YWH as the people of Israel and also claim to be oppressed, although it is evident that Israel is not even close to the "oppressed" nation they claim to be. Now I am in no way equating you to the state of Israel, however I am drawing parallels where I feel they should be drawn so I can really hit my point home. I think it is evident that it will get people enraged when you claim you are both superior to them and at the same time oppressed by them. If we create differences in ranking among the Shias based on their race or forefathers we are creating cast systems which have been defined by wisegeek.com as: "a social structure that divides people on the basis of an inherited social status."
  13. (salam) (bismillah) I feel bad for the guy, putting him on the spot like that :lol:
