  1. I have an agnostic professor who was never raised and brought up with any religion background. Infact, he asks ' what is sin?'. he was never told that there is a god, now he finds it hard to believe there is one and now he is 50 years old. Now, if my agnostic professor chooses to acknowledge that maybe god does exist, then does he need to believe in him as well ? I told him that if he acknowledges god's existence, then by not believing him he is rejecting his communications and therefore, ignoring him. Trust me, no one likes to be ignored, not even god. SA
  2. (bismillah) " Have you heard about gem therapy? " Did you know why the prophets used to wear aqqeeq (agate) and feroza (turquoise) gemstone rings on their fingers? Did you know that agate gem was the first stone to declare tawheed (oneness) of Allah? do you believe in gem therapy and does it really work? how? wear Ruby- for dignity and serenity wear emeralds -for getting rid of lethargy, more concentration How can stones tune your spirit nto oneness with god? (wasalam)
  3. please say agree or diagree and why
  4. so you mean god lied to nabi ibraheem?
  5. do you have sheikh jehad's email address? I have heard his lectures and I want to ask him a question about the sunni concept of justice compared to the shia concept.
  6. do you think the sunnis are wrong or right in the concept of justice? nabi Ibraheem (as) was asked my God to kill his own child nabi ismael (as) . agree? sunni concept of justice is : because god said do it, it is good, god said dont , it is bad shias: it is bad, so god says dont do it. it is good, so god tells you to do it. then why nabi Ibraheem was told to kill his own child if we know for sure that killing is a bad thing. killing is bad, because god said"do it" it became good. so, sunnis are right !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! shias are right too, I am not saying shias are wrong, but they must get more metaphysical.

  9. I was unsure where to post this topic, but then I realized it has to do with North America, USA. so here: would you send you child or children to a public school or to a private school? and why? I have heard alot of bad things about public schools so I wonder about others too. jazakallah khair.
  10. have been atending the majlis programs for 10 yearsand since I was little child. However, recently I have done some critical thinking as to how we spread the message of Imam Husayn(as) to ourselves , or children.

Has anyone heard this? any more information on this ??as to why the bees are disappearing.??? The consequence will be severe because-- there will be no more honey on earth, and the quran says that honey is a medicine (I don't know the exact ayat and surah) .If anyone knows the exact ayat, please share. thankyou and may Allah reward your efforts in this world and the next world. Also, as an idea: can honey be made or manufactured articially?

  25. (bismillah) as you all shias know, music is haraam. now if you live in west, music is normal and considered part of faith. so when you go grocery shopping, like to buy water, food, supplies we often have to enter places where music is on..sometimes the tunes are inviting and sometimes the lyrics are catchy. how do you avoid being attracted to the music which your conscious knows is haram. your intention is not to listen to it, your intention is to buy neccessary things for your family, so is it sin or not? and what other ways to avoid falling into that sin because that shop is maybe the only place near to your home where you can buy things for family or good sale. please advise, only good answers accepted . all others will be reported to moderator. if no replies then i will ask marja -e-taqleed. ok.
