  1. is taking a break....school

  2. (bismillah) (salam) Much more of the video should be shown before you posted it to have a discussion on it. It's fruitless to have a discussion on such a short sound byte. (wasalam)

    No Sect!

    (bismillah) (salam) First perhaps I suggest you detach this reasoning process from your 'girlfriend'. Although you believe yourself to be independent of her at this point, I assure you, emotions will get in the way, and your desires will wrongfully guide your process. Secondly, I take it you pray a certain way. And read du'as and form political opinions, and have opinions on how religion should be viewed in society, how it should be implemented in your life, and so on. When you were taught how to pray the 'Sunni' way, it was through a particular Madhab, or Sunni school of thought. So, whereas you may believe yourself to be 'sectless', you are already praying in a manner already prescribed from a point of view. This method of praying is derived from Hadith. Sunnis have their set of Hadith, and Shi'as have their set of Hadith, both from different sources (different people mainly) who were of the companions and family of the Prophet (pbuh). All of the above mentioned points I mentioned, like how to pray and so on have been influenced by a particular school of thought whether or not you know it. So you can't be 'sectless' even if you tried. You just have to search carefully and find the right 'sect', and in that case, that 'sect' will be the true Islam. The variables you mentioned are not, and should not define the essence of your Islam. They don't make you a Sunni or a Shi'a, regardless of what people think. It is no light matter, so again, I suggest you don't undertake such a search with your 'girlfriend', as your desires will inevitably guide your search, and lead you to the wrong conclusions. (wasalam)
  4. (salam) Alhamdulillah. Dead Voltaire brother you have an avid listener in me. I apologize for burdening you with such a lengthy task although it is not in vain. I very much appreciate your analysis and point of view, and I'm sure others do as well. Keep writing, I am looking forward to discussing with you. (wasalam)
  5. (salam) Ubuntu is up and running quite well on my netbook. It is running much faster than it did before with Windows, and I managed to get all the native Windows hardware working under Ubuntu. I love the layout as well. Jazak'Allah for the suggestion :). It's a good thing too, I now don't have to use a cracked copy of Windows 7....not that I would ever do such a thing :angel: (wasalam)
  6. (bismillah) (salam) There are many points I would enjoy discussing with you here, although I shall wait till you complete your analysis, for there is much to discuss, then we shall begin. Jazak'Allah again brother for acting on my request. (wasalam)
  7. (salam) Jazak'Allah brother :). I shall await your reply. (wasalam)
  8. (salam) Jazak'Allah brother. Definitely helped. (wasalam)
  9. (bismillah) (salam) I am interested in hearing your opinion Dead Voltaire. After having accepted Shi'a Islam, I felt a special attachment to the IRI, being the only homeland for Shi'as of course. I also watched quite a bit of a documentary on Ayatollah Khomeinei, and I was very impressed by the revolution and his personality. It is given that the West wishes to both isolate and demonize Iran, and there is undoubtedly much falsehood and slander attached to practically anything that comes out related to the IRI. On the other hand, it is a reality that no state is perfect. I am sure that the IRI's flaws are exploited by the West and presented in ways that are aligned in their interests. Although, I'd like to hear your opinion, if you don't mind, on the IRI's flaws. I know I've used this term vaguely, so you can use it how you wish. I don't mean to ask you about the things that the West doesn't like, I have no opinions about the IRI except for the hope that it exists in the Islamic ideals that it proclaims. As such, I'd like to hear a short analysis, or an objective opinion on the IRI. If you could provide me with one it would be greatly appreciated. (wasalam)
  10. (salam) I was hoping I can ask a couple of ring related questions here, as my other threads are pretty much dead :dry:. Abu Dujana what finger(s) do you wear your ring(s) on and do you know which fingers are permissible/forbidden? (wasalam)
  11. (bismillah) (salam) **Sorry I meant can you follow a Marja yet still consider yourself an Akhbaree? Or is it simply in denying 'Taqlid' and following the guidance of a Marja to remain an Akhbaree? And what do you mean about the opposition to Aql? Sometimes I fear when people say they use 'aql'....'reason' can at times be so contingent on the societies and ideologies that define us. I think you answered my questions, so ignore my previous posts. I will look in to your answers, Jazak'Allah. (wasalam)
  12. (bismillah) (salam) Jazak'Allah Khayr for the reply brother. Why is it then that the Usoolis seem to greatly outnumber the Akhbarees, to the point where people even doubt the existence of any legitimate Akhbarees? I mean to say if the dispute is simply verbal, or 'insignificant', is it just that the Usooli arguments are much more coherent? Can you follow a Marja yet still consider yourself an Usooli? Just curious. (wasalam)
  13. (bismillah) (salam) Can anyone explain the real differences between the two? Or link me to a reading that thoroughly explains the differences? (wasalam)
  14. (salam) Um I'm not too sure tbh. The site I was planning on ordering from is this one... It appears to be reliable although I haven't had any experience with them, so I can't really say. On sizing? My best recommendation would be to go to any nearby jewelry store, and ask anyone working there to check your size. They should have this little tool that has many different plain metal rings on it that you can slip on your fingers to check which size fits. That's the easiest and most reliable way. About the tasbeeh I'm not sure, you can check the link I sent you, otherwise e-bay is also good to look around. (wasalam)
  15. ^bump (salam) As do I. Hopefully the ring is as I'm hoping it to be :) (wasalam)
