  1. Correct me if i'm wrong brother. I know its been long since this thread was opened and you might not be even following it. My understanding about Allah was He is the creator of space, time and matter and for Him to show himself in any form would fall into these categories, meaning He is Creator, not Created and hence cannot put himself within the realms of Created at any point. thanks.
  2. thanks everyone for helping me keep my confidence in today's fast. Wishing you all in advance for tomorrow's EID and today for those who celebrate it today
  3. This is one of the days of the year i don't like 'cause some are celebrating Eid while some like me are still fasting, not knowing which one is right. Im from Toronto, and our takiyya Khana here announced Eid but said nothing about moonsighting, velayat TV channel says its on wednesday. Missing one day of ramadhan isn't good, fasting on Eid isn't any good either. What to do?
  4. three days and no reply yet!!! I was at least expecting the mods and other learnt people here to comment on it.
  5. Slavery was obviously the luxury for Arabs at that time ( everywhere for that matter), and Our Holy Prophet (PBUH&HF) wanted to abolish it but it wouldn't be that easy. slavery is the worst way of treating a human and its after effects stays for generations and even millenniums. Like the case of United states, Ibrahim Lincoln did the best he could by making it illegal (atleast for confederacy) and finally long after his death, it was made unlawful. but you see the effects are still there and ever growing. the hate and animosity is never relieved. because the person dignity, self respect and human values are at stake. so our holy prophet had a better plan by the will of Allah. he didn't abolish it. but he said who ever buys a slave, should feed him, shelter him, clothe him, protect him.....secondly educate them, thirdly teach them skills and trades and finally release them after one year As far as sex slavery is concerned, it was at high peaks among Arabs but the prophet abolished that completely. slaves were there to make your life easier not to quench your thirst and desire for sex just because you were bored of your wife.
  6. I believe the ayas within the surah have always been in the chronological order, i meant the the ordering of surahs like below: Chronology Vs. Actual Order 1 The Clot (-96-) 2 The Pen (-68-) 3 The Enshrouded One (-73-) 4 The Cloaked One (-74-) 5 The Opening (-1-) 6 Palm Fibre (-111-) 7 The Overthrowing (-81-) 8 The Most High (-87-) 9 The Night (-92-) 10 The Dawn (-89-) 11 The Morning Hours (-93-) 12 Solace (-94-) 13 The Declining Day (-103-) 14 The Coursers (-100-) 15 Abundance (-108-) 16 Rivalry in Worldly Increase (-102-) 17 Small Kindnesses (-107-) 18 The Disbelievers (-109-) 19 The Elephant (-105-) 20 The Daybreak (-113-) 21 Mankind (-114-) 22 The Unity (-112-) 23 The Star (-53-) 24 He Frowned (-80-) 25 Power (-97-) 26 The Sun (-91-) 27 The Mansions of the Stars (-85-) 28 The Fig (-95-) 29 Winter or Qureysh (-106-) 30 The Calamity (-101-) 31 The Rising of the Dead (-75-) 32 The Traducer (-104-) 33 The Emissaries (-77-) 34 Oaf (-50-) 35 The City (-90-) 36 The Morning Star (-86-) 37 The Moon (-54-) 38 Sad (-38-) 39 The Heights (-7-) 40 The Jinn (-72-) 41 Ya Sin (-41-) 42 Criterion (-42-) 43 The Angels (-35-) 44 Mary (-19-) 45 Ta Ha (-20-) 46 The Event (-56-) 47 The Poets (-26-) 48 The Ant (-27-) 49 The Story (-28-) 50 The Children of Israel (-17-) 51 Jonah (-10-) 52 Hud (-11-) 53 Joseph (-12-) 54 Al-Hijr (-15-) 55 Cattle (-6-) 56 Those Who Set the Ranks (-37-) 57 Luqman (-31-) 58 Saba (-34-) 59 The Troops (-39-) 60 The Believer (-40-) 61 Fusilat (-41-) 62 Counsel (-42-) 63 Ornaments of Gold (-43-) 64 Smoke (-44-) 65 Crouching (-45-) 66 The Wind-Curved Sandhills (-46-) 67 The Winnowing Winds (-51-) 68 The Overwhelming (-88-) 69 The Cave (-18-) 70 The Bee (-16-) 71 Noah (-71-) 72 Abraham (-14-) 73 The Prophets (-21-) 74 The Believers (-23-) 75 The Prostration (-32-) 76 The Mount (-52-) 77 The Sovereignty (-67-) 78 The Reality (-69-) 79 The Ascending Stairways (-70-) 80 The Tidings (-78-) 81 Those Who Drag Forth (-79-) 82 The Cleaving (-82-) 83 The Sundering (-84-) 84 The Romans (-30-) 85 The Spider (-29-) 86 Defrauding (-83-) 87 The Cow (-2-) 88 Spoils of War (-8-) 89 The Family of 'Imran (-3-) 90 The Clans (-33-) 91 She That is to be Examined (-60-) 92 The Women (-4-) 93 The Earthquake (-99-) 94 Iron (-57-) 95 Muhammad (-47-) 96 The Thunder (-13-) 97 The Beneficent (-55-) 98 Time or Man (-76-) 99 Divorce (-65-) 100 The Clear Proof (-98-) 101 Exile (-59-) 102 Light (-24-) 103 The Pilgrimage (-22-) 104 The Hypocrites (-63-) 105 She That Disputeth (-58-) 106 The Private Apartments (-49-) 107 Banning (-66-) 108 Mutual Disillusion (-64-) 109 The Ranks (-61-) 110 The Congregation (-62-) 111 Victory (-48-) 112 The Table Spread (-5-) 113 Repentance (-9-) 114 Succour (-110-)
  7. the camel story i heard when i was a kid but forgot the details, thank you very much for sharing it with us.
  8. salaam brothers/sisters: After browsing through some Islamic websites, my attention steered towards the chronology of Qur'an. As we know the first chapter that was revealed was the 96th chapter that starts with "Iqra"(READ). I understand by knowing the chronological order of Qur'an we can have a better understanding of historical events that took place at that time. This brings me to my questions: If the chronological Order of Qur'an would teach us more - Revelations and real-time events, then why wasn't Qur'an compiled in that way? whats the benefit of our Actual Ordered present day Qur'an over chronologically ordered one? And why did Imam Ali (A.S) deem it necessary to compile it during the reign of the first caliph? I understand this doesn't change anything, but i believe it would open up a new vantage point to view the Holy Qur'an. Thanks everyone in advance.
  9. Did his act relieve the prophet (pbuh)? rest of the hadith says the prophet(PBUH)'s condition got worse by it (causing ppl to argue in that room) that he asked all of them to leave the room. So in fact, he made it worse, not better. Agreed?
  10. Is the law put forth by Imam Khomeini the same the one being implemented right now? or is it modified? ...just wondering
  11. "Exposed"??? Well, those who understood my question, already answered me. But thanks for your concern.
  12. one ridicule followed by another.....very mature guys. I have nothing to do with how they run the country, nor do i acknowledge MKO...Someone said: wanna say something smart? think of something stupid then don't say it.
  13. talking about the one near Victoria pk and O'Connor? you're right I should've. Never been there. And I'm talking about the main concentration of Iranians, Richmond hill, but rest of Toronto too. See its not like I'm going around interviewing people about it, but it just happens that out of nowhere they start cussing Khomeini out, out of their frustrations for leaving their happy life in Iran and coming to Canada. I thought maybe there was more to it, that's why I made this post in the first place.
  14. What I wanted to talk about got discussed and explained till post #21, and to be honest it did clear up my mind about the confusions i had. But this barbie-drama started when IRI was decorated with Islamic Law and thats where it all started going off-road. For a mod, you really didn't go through the thread at all, did you? Me hating IRI or loving them, makes no difference, not to me, not to you, not to anyone, so thats irrelevant. And every example i give you, you will throw it away calling it poor examples, kind of like what Americans do to new evidence calling it "conspiracy theory". I must admit i'm new to this site and have just started looking into world issues, and im not familiar with the term "green movement". So we abondon the truth cuz its backed up by "Islamophobes"?
  15. Do i really need to remind you of Sakineh Mohammadi, just one example for now: http://freesakineh.org/ Please tell me that was Islamic.
  16. If you wanna be hard headed about it as i said before, by all means, but please do it at an appropriate thread. this is just taking us away from the topic of this thread. I DO have a pre-formed opinion, and that's not exclusively to Iran, but to all so-called Islamic countries. I lived in Iran more than I lived in Afghanistan (5 years compared to 8 months of infancy), therefore, i have deep attachments to that country. also i grew up thinking Iran is the biggest shi'a country and the central school of shi'a studies. So please don't bring those differences here, on this thread. if the example of afghans really disturbs you then you can scratch that off. but are you really convinced Iran is implementing the laws of Allah and the prophet's sunnah??? I highly doubt so. Even still, my question is about majority of iranians in north america hating khomeini. So can we please get back on track now?
  17. read my post #26, i was not pretending to be inquisitive, but if thats how you look at things, then all the power to you. you guys are mixing up the issue of Khomeini with current political structure of Iran, while I made it clear about what i was inquiring about.
  18. it is consistent....in the sense that Afghans have utmost respect for Ayatollah Khomeini but he never ordered to get them kicked out of Iran. But the so-called "Islamic republic" is carrying out what i've listed. I don't think what they're doing now has anything to do with Khomeini. I request you read my post without any prejudice ( if any). But its not just about Afghans, its what they're doing to Iranians too, and now this uprising by students and all. these 1000s of civilians can't be all wrong. And my apologies if I, in any way, showed my expertise, if I was an expert, I wouldn't post this question here. Im just stating my opinion from what I've seen. My blood boils when I see people using Islam as a tool/weapon to suite their desires.
  19. I strongly disagree on this matter. How is Iran implementing proper Islamic laws by stoning people to death? how is Islamic law being implemented by hanging poor girls til death because they were rape victims and the accused was a govt./political figure? How is Allah's law being put into action, when they go house to house in mashad and threw afghans out of their houses and sent them back to their land while their poor children hadn't even returned from school? Islamic republic of Iran has nothing Islamic in it. Matter of fact, no Islamic govt has anything Islamic in it. I understand your love for your country (if you're Iranian) but truth stands clear, doesn't it? One afghan poet once said, I went to the east, I saw Muslims but no Islam, I went to the west, i saw Islam but no muslims....or something like that.
  20. salaam brother, thanks for your reply but my damn poor memory, i can't seem to remember which thread u posted it in. Ca you please send me again? thanks

  21. Reality check: whats the difference between men and pigs? Pigs don't turn into men when drunk LOL
  22. Also leading prayers is not a privilege but a responsibility. Women already are burdened with so much responsibilities, leading prayers is out of the question despite the fact that even during namaaz law of attraction still applies.
  23. OK now this is a little disturbing...How did my question move to..."Potential of an Iran War and a Strategic Analysis" Section. C'mon mods, have we given up logic already? thanks
  24. i agree with you, but how are you gonna convince millions of other sunnis whose hate for shi'as grow by the minutes. If history is irrelevant, then what else could be the reason for them bombing shi'a mosques and throwing acids on our processions in Muharram? We see them getting very physical during muharram than the rest of the year. Why every year we hear it in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq?
