  1. It is a very dangerous thing to draw conclusions about an ideology based on those who claim to adhere it. All the issue you point out in Muslim countries exist in Christian nations as well. The issues you mention therefore are not rooted in Islam, but are instead the product of freewill. Muslims leaders do no speaking for Islam., just as Christian leaders do not speak for Christianity. Ideals stand or fall on their own. I would suggest that you began with an examination of the logical underpinnings of Christianity itself. Perhaps reading Thomas Paine's "Age of Reason" would be benefici
  2. Comparing mutah performed according to shar'iah to prostitution is a very dangerous thing. As with any other act, it ideally should be performed for Allah.
  3. I do not know a single convert man who has a problem with a woman who has had a mut'ah, or is divorced. the only issue I have seen amongst converts is women who have more than two children finding it difficult to marry. The issues would therefore appear to be cultural, and let's be honest, extend to permanent marriage as well.
  4. (salam) I did not quore MDM, or Marbles but Brother MacIsaac,, who was speaking about the statement of one his teachers in QUm, who was a judge, that there is some form of disagreement regarding whether it is currently permissible to beat/torture suspects/prisoners. I was not confused in the least by your post. I was pointing out that your post, although correct in how things should be, does not necessarily reflect how things actually are in fact.
  5. (salam) This is precisely what the borther is saying did not happened, with some people in positions of authority considering "roughing people up" to be acceptable.
  6. (salam) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halloween If Halloween is haram then I would posit that Nowrouz, a Zoroastrian h9oliday in which people still jump over fires, would be haram as well. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nowruz
  7. I believe that the answer to your question lies in the continue elucidation of Islam and the Shariah by the Imams (as).
  8. (salam) It seems that we are demanding more from MDM then we do from hadith scholars. We have Ayatullah Montazeri, although not a direct witness, relating the reports he has received. Yes, the original reporters are not named, yet this is standard in our books of narration when it is feared the person or persons from whom the information was received would be in danger if they were named. Given the allegations that people were bing tortured and unjustly executed, Aya. Montazeri actually displays astuteness and not naivety when he does not name the individuals from who he heard the reports.
  9. (salam) If someone makes a posts about how united the scholars are on a matter, one would expect to see key scholars in the photos presented. There is no fitnah in pointing out that prominent figures are not meeting someone, in fact avoiding them. Doing so is a simple refutation of a poorly supported claim.
  10. (salam) When legitimate concerns are brought forward about the alleged actions of the scholars it is called disrespect. This is precisely what Sunnis do in regards to the sahaba. And before this analogy is simply brushed off, Hamza Sodagar has pointed out that the sahaba were highly knowledgeable, and would be maraaje if they were alive today. Brother Persian Shah, you keep quoting the same material over and over again by brother MacIsaac, but no where does he imply that he is the only or even the most knowledgeable person on the topic of WF. He simply points out that the members who are p
  11. (salam) Brother Jebreil, The only flaw that I see in your reasoning regarding he understanding of the hadith i question is that for the majority of the history of Shi'a Islam since the occultaltion of the Imam (aj) is the fuquha have considered the exercise of particular function sof the Imam (aj) to be impermissible. It was not not until 200 to 300 years ago that we even see the fuqhua allowing for the salat-ul-Eid and salat-ul-jumah. It was not until more recently that we see the ulema allowing for the collection of khums. The concept of government as expressed by Imam Khumayni (ra) is ex
  12. (salam) What is the point of this post? It introduces no new information nor does it analyze information already present. It is at best a vapid ad hominem attack. Such a statement is beneath you, and has nothing to do with the point I made regarding this being a discussion of historical events. I make no claim to know or have access to the same information that scholars who have spent their lives studying Islam and its branches of knowledge. I do lay claim to the right to ask questions, exercise my intellect which lead me to Islam and the ahl-ul-bayt (as), and to hold opinions the based
  13. Brother Jebreil, You miss read what I wrote in regards to the fifth hadith you cited. I am quoting here for the convince of discussion and the reader. "5. When Imam Ja'far Sadiq (as) was asked about the problems, which are referred to despotic administration for decision he said, "Referring to these departments is very bad because it is referring to the despot and if someone gets back his right from these despotic departments it becomes unlawful. On such occasions however, it is your duty to refer to those people who know our teachings and narrations fully well, because I declare them as the Q
  14. (salam) Recall that when someone comes to a father, and the father is pleased with that persons manners and religion, he should not be denied. Placing extra conditions should be avoided, however, if it is truly a matter of physical attraction, this is of course something to consider as it would be difficult to build a health realtionship if the spouse are not attracted to each other. so if a woman were in fact to find men outside of a particular ethic/racial group to be unattractive, then it is a good basis for not marrying them as she must submit herself to her husbands legitimate sexual re
