  1. I will be astonished if they just let the Shia and other minorities be in peace in Afghanistan. Hopefully they are wiser now. If they can allow women some breathing room and let them study and work maybe they can decide also not to bully other groups. However, I am not sure if these really are purely Taliban. Yanks have been depositing ISIS in Afghanistan each time they had to be saved and evacuated from Russian and Iran led operations. These ISIS vectors are responsible for recent atrocities committed against the Hazara there. Now that the great Satan seems to have left it must have done something, might have made a pact with the Taliban most probably. It can't just give up and leave. It makes no sense. Afg is neighbor to both Iran and China and also Russia. There is something going on which is far more important than Taliban driving their fleet of old toyota hilux's into Kabul.
  2. I think the problem with the Shia dislike for gay etc is twofold. We have this obligation of Tabarra / Disassociation from Evil. Secondly in our faith sodomy is deemed Kufr / Disbelief, not a usual sin. Because of Tabarra we have to disassociate in our own fashions from all evil, be it past, present or yet to come. So, since this is "Shiachat", yeah. Secondly tightening the noose of censorship never helps. People like conspiracy theories. Its like reading fiction. Sometimes it is the truth. Nothing to be afraid of. Its not like CNN.
  3. Yes, let us. Why not. You can start by illuminating your concept of Imamate. /((P.S.: Last time we had a discussion you did not so I had to google. It was .. unsatisfactory for me since in Islam, since Ibrahim, Imams are chosen by Allah and not men. So, may be you can start there.))
  4. I think the problem is that hijab gets compromised. Sometimes my wife exclaims when she looks at some woman sitting behind her husband on a motorbike how that woman 'fat buttocks and thighs are exposed to the world and clothes dont help its the posture that becomes on those rides. Some women take precautions, some don't. Some men don't look, others do. When I see such a thing I do pray for them to have a car and be covered by it.
  5. I wish someday there is a real challenge when someone makes a debate thread and shows us: - Hey look. Our religion is more compliant with the Quran. - It has better Imams and leader figures who made more contributions for the human race. - It makes more sense and connects more dots and is closer to Allah. - It is more peaceful and more beautiful. - It is more understandable, it has more hadiths and guidance, it is less confusing and contradicting. It has so many duas/supplications and material you can read and practice to get closer to Allah. - And since it is so much better in all respects is why I as your brother/sister and well wisher in humanity am inviting you to it. Expectation vs reality. - We good u bad becoz herp derp brrrrrrt copypastalolx bye.
  6. I have a few memories of a past life myself that I believe are from my life in the spirit world where we come from to this world. Imam Ali (عليه السلام) in one of his sayings tells us that if we try we can remember that life and that he (عليه السلام) remembers all of it.
  7. Try Tor, I guarantee its safety. There is always a way. Always a mechanism. Unless those sites are no longer being hosted or disconnected somehow by hackers etc then it should work. Even if they are hacked, they should be back in time. They played golf on the moon for three days during 60s and all but sites injurious to their "matrix" like The Pirate Bay and free movie streamers and people with much less tech knowledge than Snowden have all survived and thrived for decades. So I just find it hard to believe. Most people greatly overestimate them which is a mistake.
  8. I don't think any actually believing person, someone who believes in judgement, heaven and hell will consciously not feel sorry on the inside somewhere at least for the secular people. Yeah provided he is into caring for others' well being. They are headed to trouble. They will be asked questions and they will not be able to defend their cases. There are good and peaceful people among them. Other than that, after all its their own decision to make and I wish them prosperity in peace. In fact if they believe in human values like truth, justice and friendship they can prove to be better than many otherwise so-called believers who never really swallowed basic Islamic teachings.
  9. This nation underwent the unfathomable horrors of the holocaust at the hands of a racist political party in a country that was not theirs, and they still mourn and are irrevocably scarred by that experience that none, before or after WW2, is capable of feeling. Let that sink in. Could the two be the same people? Common sense says nope. And if they are not those refugees from Europe then why the heck did the West arm, feed and unleash them upon us.
  10. Use Tor Browser, its free and better (iirc open source too?). Or use a VPN. But I do not recommend commercial VPNs. Tor does everything, even enables you to use the "dark net".
  11. It will take much more than tidbits of copy pastes with no possibility of verification to take it seriously. Sunnis also make wild boasts. But all this is not scholarly nor Zaydism "clicks" into the picture. Above all you people always weasel out and simply do not answer if people choose and Imam or if Allah does. Call it pompous gloating but anyone can read any of these discussions and verify that. I think I made a mistake posting in this thread. Your photo made me think you might be actually knowledgeable and I would have my answers. Peace.
  12. I did not write it is "incorrect". I wrote that it is "extra Islamic". Which means that it is against Quran and Hadith. You could try to show Quran and Hadith support you instead. I mean history just demolishes you so maybe you can also try to find something in Quran instead. We would all love to see Zaidism from Quran or Hadith. You know. You guys never use it. Or is the Quran and all Hadith also "Twelver".
  13. The people can choose their Imams. Like Sunnis. And Zaydis. But it is extra Islamic.
  14. Stars are used for navigation and long journeys, especially the north star, being so bright. The parable seems to fit.
  15. I think none here have played video games longer than I have. While it might not be a problem in some situations I agree. But I see two major problems in quitting. 1. Withdrawal. Just like drugs after a day or two you get flashbacks sort of of games and want to play again. Its the dopamine, the brain's reward system beginning to starve and you feel bored, which takes us to the next problem. 2. Time and Boredom. What is boredom? Doing things like being idle or doing things you don't like. Especially in the presence of things you can do that are more interesting. Again this is up to the brain's reward system and dopamine. In short when there are interesting things to do during free time I do not miss playing video games.
