  1. Salaam alaykum, @habib e najjaar, @Hameedeh, @Laayla, @StarryNight. Some pretty awesome sauce crew right there! I'm sure all of y'all are, but I've had the blessing of keeping in touch or hearing from them over the years.
  2. Hm, but what about political participation? It could be argued that, Muslim youth in the west are politically active, however, are all political campaigns, and initiatives that are promoted in the west (which the youth are easily lured into) representative of Islamic values? Many times, it's not that the youth are not engaged or active in political realms., but the issues lies in the lack of political wisdom (baseerah) and the need to build a power of analysis to understand the present global trends and circumstances, so that we are taking meaningful actions that contribute to the values that are in like with the revolutionary ideals of Shi'i Islam.
  3. "We don't want complicated icons. People do not like to think. If one thinks, one must reach conclusions, "Hellen Keller pointed out. "Conclusions are not always pleasant". Most of us automatically shy away from conflict, and understandably so. We particularly seek to avoid conflict in the classroom. One reason is habit: we are so accustomed to blandness that the textbook or teacher who brought real intellectual controversy into the classroom would strike us as a violation of polite rhetoric, of classroom norms. We are supposed to speak well of the deceased, after all." - Lies My Teacher Told Me, P. 25
  4. Wa alaykum salaam, It would be good to target your audience towards the youth of this 21st century. Perhaps focusing on the concept of misplaced leadership, and the ignorance of humanity and human values.
  5. The patience and forbearance of Sayyida Zaynab (sa) and the bravery and compassion of Abal Fadhl al-Abbas (as) A story of love, at it's truest and most pure form.
  6. "Anything you do out of love, this obedience is different than that of what you do out of fear or organizational instruction. You obey because you love, and you seek opportunities to do something..." -Sheikh Mohammad Ali Shomali (picture attached: Beloved Shrine of Amiral Momineen, the pinnacle of Muhhabah (love).
  7. It is disgusting! I was in Karbala for the Arba'een (Alhamdulillah) and I saw this disco right outside the Harram (like before you step into the gates). I was shocked!!! Mainly from Iranians, and they were just there hanging about, some jumping up and down in unison, others smoking etc. It was a very very saddening thing to see! And now this??? I never saw it within the actual Harram vicinity. Sad...
  8. Salaam Alaykum, thank you very much! Alhamdulillah!
  9. Salaam, Any farsi speaker available/willing to translate this old-timer?
  10. Alhamdulillah, glad you thought so as well. It was very impacting!
  11. The patience and forbearance of Sayyida Zaynab (sa) and the bravery and compassion of Abal Fadhl al-Abbas (as) A story of love, at it's truest and most pure form.
  12. So full of Baseerah! Masha Allah
  13. Masha Allah, I really appreciate his Farsi recitation efforts. May Allah bless him!
  14. Absolutely! thanks for the explanation.
  15. Salaaam, thanks for the motivational message! However, I have a question regarding one point you made: Why do you say darkness as an entity doesn't exist? Doesn't Allah say in the Qur'an: “A Book We have sent down to you so that you may bring forth mankind from the darkness into the light......”. (14:1) “That you may bring forth your people from the darkness into the light ...” (14:5) “God is the Protector of the believers; He brings them forth from the darkness into the light. And the unbelievers --their protectors are taghut, that bring them forth from the light into the darkness ...” (2:257) Whenever the Qur'an mentions darkness it is used in a plural form, and whenever it mentions noor (light) it is used in a singular form.
  16. Bismillah, Salaam brother @gerashi_mp. Very sorry to bother you again, but whenever you find the time (no pressure, if you cannot) this is a next must-translate! InshaAllah. So beautiful
  17. The testament of an afterlife. Every person will reap what he sowed, the righteous and the mischievous.
  18. Salaam Alaykom, Thank you for sharing! For some reason, I prefer the Arabic version more! hehe
  19. Wa alaykom salaam, Thank you very much for the translation brother! May Allah reward you. Insha Allah I'll be adding subtitles, and will make slight tweaks to some of the words, with your permission. Ya Ali
  20. Today it stands, praise be to God! This is due to the bravery of the defenders of this Holy Shrine, who have sacrificed their lives selflessly (leaving behind wives, sons, daughters, parents) just for the sake of being present and protecting Sayyidah Zaynab (sa). We will not leave her alone, once again! We will not abandon her! The fact that today we are able to pay our respects to her brothers Imam Hussayn (as), Hazrat Abal Fadhl al- abbass (as) in Karbala, and al Jawadain in Kazimayn, Iraq Is because the defenders have shown the taghut (oppressors) of our time, that they cannot come near their beloved sister! Not again! May Allah (swt) make the lovers of Ahlul Bayt (as) sincere in their struggle against oppression and falsehood...triumphant. illahi ameen!
  21. What a marvel site! :'( goodness. May we be invited to this beautiful place! Ya Hussayn!
  22. Bismillah, Salaam brother @gerashi_mp. May you be well, insha Allah. I was wondering if you could take a look at this clip, and let me know if the video matches the Arabic recitation? Or what is the recitation talking about? If so, if you find the time. Do you think you could translate it? Sorry to bother you. with duaas
