  1. Asalaamu Alaykum, A great way to meet people, especially muslims, is simply going to the local masaajid. What area of MD will you be in? I may be able to suggest a few ^_^
  2. Bismill.. Asalaamu Alaykum, I'm happy to learn that we both agree on the main and most important point in this topic, which is the importance of Islam. Alhamdulill..! I must say though, that I don't know how you have come to conclude that, "So many of the people protesting are in fact very religious." I can't judge people by their intentions and niyyah within; that is something we all will see All.. (swt) make clear on Yowm al Qiyyamah. However, I can judge people based on some of their actions, as it is my responsibility to be enemies with the enemies of All..(swt). Throughout the past

    and I understand your situation in not being able to continue a discussion. It is understandable and actually I think a smart choice to simply step away from a topic that doesn't seem to go anywhere and isn't influencing the readers. May All.. (swt) give all the mo'mineen the strength to seek and protect the words of Islam. iA! Fi Amanill.. Waslaam.

  4. Asalaamu Alaykum Brother,

    My apologies for getting back so late. Thank you for your comment. I wish I could have spent more time on the topic, but unfortunately I have been very busy. Truthfully, I believe you much more knowledgeable in the subjects that are discussed than I am and mA I always wait to read your very informative posts. I think that sometimes though there is a case of

  5. Bismill.. Asalaamu Alaykum, I feel like through time we have automatically equivalated death (in Muslims) to mean Jihad (specifically Fi Sabilill..) and I admit I believe this is something that has taken root (becoming more prevalent amongst Iranians) since the time of the revolution in Iran where we truly did witness numerous deaths that were jihad and hence led to shahadah. However, we must not forget that any Muslim who chants All.. Akbar and dies is not consequently a shaheed. We are all very aware of this "stereotype" especially since 9/11 as many of us have suffered from the beli
  6. If I ever said that people migrate from Iran, with the intend of da'wah or for that reason, then I stand corrected. Please show me where I said this so that I can correct myself. As a matter of fact, those who move from Iran to western countries, aren't the da'wah type, rather they in many cases, are the "anti-da'wahs" who we try to "work against." Many of the Iranians that move to the US, at least where I live, are not only not helping, but rather they are harming the image of Islam, if not amongst the non-muslim community, they are definitely not setting a good example amongst the sunni

  8. should be understood; and they don't want to.

    For years I've been here; just search my posts; and you'll see.

    I'm watching the thread and if required will come into assist; but be patient, and don't become angry; though they will try to make you angry and they are extremely frustrating at times.

    Salaams

    Just wanted to say that masha Allah you're handling the discussion (4 Protesters Thread) well.

    I've stepped away; simply because I've been through this cycle time and time again with the same and similar people; they pick on out of context statements to serve their purpose; they also don't understand Islam as it...

  10. Bismill.. Asalaamu Alaykum, Maybe this is the reason why you can't understand my viewpoint. I'm not searching for happy. I'm not avoiding it either, but, I'm looking for something else in this donya, something that I doubt will include much comfort. I have maximum, 60(ish) years left in this world, that's considering I'll die a natural death, in these years I have to do certain things that will prepare me for the akhera and grantee happiness there. Trying to "look" for happy or aim for happy is not my thing now. But I truly do hope for everyone's happiness iA! Many people have a problem w
  11. Bismill.. Asalaamu Alaykum, Good point, but amongst the Iranians I know, many didn't move from Iran because their was a lack of education. Some of those who came to the US or other countries, came after finishing their bachelors in Iran or even after having established themselves in their relatives career fields. Amongst our friends or community members, some came before the revolution as their families were well off and it was considered fashionable to "study abroad." But in all reality, Iran's educational system is not bad at all. One of my uncles studied at MIT, but his brother studied in
  12. Bismill.. Asalaamu Alaykum, Everyone is up against different circumstances due to their location or the people around them. I live in an area that has always allowed me to do "da'wa" and also, my mother has always emphasized this matter in our family from a very young age. I am going to make a very big generalization, which doesn't not include everyone, but simply reflects a trend I have seen. In both the shia and sunni communities that I have been involved with in the past, the more religious members (judging by outer charachter, so yes they could not be true religious individuals) a
  13. Bismill.. Asalamu Alaykum, Yes I completely agree. I apologize for my choice of word or lack of explanation. Yours describes the situation very well. Jazakull.. Khayr. Its the schools system that forces the students to reach higher "levels," something which can be seen in many other countries. As a matter of fact there are so many countries that I can't even begin to name them. I was not very careful in writing that part. Jazakull.. Khayr for "keeping me on my toes." All the truth which has been said is from All.. (swt) and that which is not is from myself.
  14. Bismill.. Asalaamu Alaykum, I was not implying that all the muslims in the west are here for "da'wa" purposes. I may not have been clear, but I was saying many of the pro-Iranian Government/ pro-Wilayatul Faghih individuals are. Those who think Iran is as mentioned before, a kind of utopia for them. This is simply my experience with the people I know and have met throughout my years in the west. On a side note, I must say, many sunni brothers and sisters I have met who feel strongly about other countries, and admire their system, also continue to live in the west for da'wa purposes, some a
  15. Bismill.. Asalaamu Alaykum, I must admit, I am one of the "they" you have been referring to in your posts. Even though I know this discussion isn't going to have a promising ending, I couldn't refrain from replying. I very strongly dislike the western governments, England more that America, but I won't get into the whys of it. Iran is the one country that I feel, allows me the most freedom in many areas, due to its religious "nature." I should say this now, I wish I was living in Iran. If I had the opportunity to decide where I grew up, it would have been Iran, but that was obviously not i
