    koko313 got a reaction from Crimson in You Know You're Shia When...   
    (bismillah)

    After having read all the 'You know you're persian if...' or 'You know you're arab if..' I've come up with my own one. I don't know if this has been done before and it's not meant to offend..
    You Know You’re Shia When…
    You get excited when you hear they’re giving food at the mosque :!!!:
    You’re even more Shia if the food is what causes you to attend the lecture in the first place :!!!: :!!!:
    You name your first son Ali, not Mohammed
    You know more about the Sunni faith, than Sunni’s do ;)
    Your hubby does NOT look like this (no offence if he actually does)
    You either love the Iranian government or hate ‘em
    The only time you envy Sunni’s is in Ramadan when you’re still staring at the clock…and they’ve started eating :(
    You own a beautiful Dhulfiqar
    If not..you’re patiently waiting for a friend to go to Iran or Iraq to get you one :squeez:
    You feel happy when you see a fellow Shia on the street (usually identify them by their Dhulfiqar chain or bushy eyebrows)
    The likes of Zakir Naik make your skin crawl :shaytan:
    You spend ages on a Shia forum, bickering about Islamic issues :mad:
    You secretly believe your Marja is better than everyone else’s :angel:
    You dream about doing Muta with the girl next door, or any girl for that matter…alas it never happens (guys)
    You wish you didn’t need the father’s permission to do Muta (girls)
    You visit Karbala more than Makkah and Medina
    You will automatically hate someone if their name is Yazid (trust me there’re a lot of them out there)
    You do a ridiculous amount of Taqqiya
    You’re reading this list thinking, damn there’s a lot of stuff missing (blame that on SC rules and No. 18) :dry:

    Feel free to add any...there are two actual hilarious ones that I absolutely cannot post up...but I’m sure you guys can come up with better ones.

    koko313 got a reaction from DoubleAgent4 in Would You Adopt/foster A Boy?   
    1) I would love it if my husband wanted to adopt since I have no plans of having my own biological kids
    2) A girl or boy would make no difference to me, and I may not observe hijab in front of the boy. And yes I do know it's technically 'haram'.
    Myo - If the hijab of your wife is an issue for either of you, there really is a simple solution. And remember if you adopt a girl, she would not be mahram to you either. But all you gotta do is have a child of your own first. Then adopt. Once they have matured, they can do a short mutah marriage - literally for a few mins. After it's 'over' both you and your wife will be mahram to your adopted child (whether male of female) since the in laws are always mahram even after mutah is over and divorce. However as siblings they won't be mahram to each other..so it is a tricky situation.
    And good on you for thinking of adoption, not many guys are capable of unconditionally loving a child not biologically their own.

    And another one to add- You know you're Shia when listening to music is just as exciting as watching paint dry...it's all about latmiyat and nasheeds :D

    Unfortunately nowadays a wedding is a party to impress the guests..which is usually why the couple won't even recognise half the people there.

    koko313 reacted to Yasoob Al Deen in For The Love Of God, Change The Forum Skin   
    Salamun alaykum.
    This new forum upgrade has resulted in a mass of problems that simply do not justify the upgrade if the upgrade was to gain these new features that are unnecessary, time-wasting, and sometimes lame imitations of the style of facebook.
    Examples of poor colouring, other poor style formatting choices while browsing a board, and other problems
    Browsing the forum, and reading topics, with this new skin has turned from a quick and enjoyable activity into something not so. The colours are so light, they seem to blend in confusingly/irritatingly.
    Let's take this board as an example: http://www.shiachat....eeth-dua-forum/
    The "mark this forum as read" button image appears to be missing.
    The text in the Shiachat logo is too similar to the surrounding blue colour and therefore unnoticeable.
    The three key topics/announcements on top of the posts, such as the Live Chat topic, there is no real distinction between the three topics. Furthermore, the colour of the words is similar to the background colour and light enough to easily nullify the intended easy-reading. The colour of the board description "Discuss Allah's holy book, Hadeeths..." is also so light, one would easily miss it. The same major problem exists for the information underneath the topic (e.g."Started by ruru, 03 Aug 2011"). The same major problem exists forthe page numbers of a topic.
    Examples of poor colouring, other poor style formatting choices, and other problems while browsing a topic:
    Let's take this topic as an example: http://www.shiachat....the-holy-quran/
    The "report" button image appears to be missing.
    The title of the post at the top is too large, while the description is too small.
    The text in the "like" button is far too light. And the background of the quote buttons are too light, and the text is not dark enough.
    The post number "#1" is also far too light and easily missed.
    Scroll down to post #2, and see how the new skin has poorly formatted Hameedeh's information underneath her avatar (which was ruined by the upgrade). When Nader Zaveri posts, you can see that the link to his website underneath his avatar goes onto the post; another example of poor formatting by the author of this skin; see
    The white background is too light and makes reading the post uncomfortable and more difficult.
    If you go to the end of Hameedeh's post, underneath the "like this" button, there is a poorly-placed, lightly-coloured, X button.
    Scroll down to post #3, and you will see the formatting of the post has been ruined, because Hamed Agha pasted some Arabic text in.
    Scroll down to post #5 and see the signature. Now a standard colour, and standard small size, has become too light and too small.
    Scroll to the end of the topic and see the following links: "Back to Quran, Hadeeth & Du'a Forum · Next Unread Topic →". Far too light. Far too small. Don't even look links.
    The quick reply box is not distinct due to the phobia of shading anything with a sharp, dark colour.
    The "up" button at the end of the page is also far too light.
    Examples of the theme's confusing indicators:
    The topic icons are uninformative and confusing. What does that star mean? I assume it means that I started the topic or that I posted in the topic or something like that.
    Why is the pinned topic "Hadeeths About Crimes Of Enemies Of Ahlul Bayt" surrounded by white instead of the very light blue that the rest of the topics are?
    I could go on and talk about other irritations such as when trying to post a topic, but I've said enough.
    This new skin is frankly hideous, and unappealing. Yes, I know there will be oddballs who say they like the new skin. But I don't. And I'm sure there are others who don't. It makes trying to browse the boards and trying to read topics annoying.
    At the very least, please install another skin into the forums, so that we have choice.
    Please voice your agreement or like my post.
