  1. So Venezuela (and now Bolivia again) a relatively small country, with barely an army, can establish relations with Iran and get delivery of oil / gasoline etc. all the way from the other side of the planet even though both Venezuela and Iran are under severe US sanctions... But Pakistan a massive country of 215-220 million people - nuclear armed - with a professionally trained army can't take delivery of oil from next door Iran? This has nothing to do with sanctions, it has everything to do with being weak and only reciting the kalma not really understanding or living up to what it means. Not
  2. Pakistan needs to remove its forces protecting the Saudis princesses and re-dedicate towards the resistance. Thats what it needs to do - but the people of Pakistan are not yet ready to pay the price that comes with developing integrity and saying the beginning of the kalma La ... But one never knows the people may soon have had enough and they'll be ready soon inshallah!
  3. The people you identified who Trump killed were soldiers they were ready to die and become shaheed. If it had not been for covid19 Trump would have won in a massive landslide - because the economy b/4 covid19 was booming away. With respect to covid19 we know that countries with true socialized centralized medicine did and continue to do very well. Those that don't have that kind of medical system or have effectively dismantled their system are doing horribly. US has a rotten medical / health care system - and no matter who was POTUS the covid19 policies would have been terrible. Because in ord
  4. The mostly fake news has been created by anti-china elements in the US and UK to basically try and alienate Muslims from China, and of-course to ferment dissent within Chinese Muslims - and also to support terrorists who want to break away the region (the fake name "East Turkestan"). This is part of Turkey's nationalistic interests as a way of "uniting" all Turkik people under the banner Erdoganism. Iran as always keeps a clear sight of the region and the interfering and takfiris who want to sow all kinds of fitna.
  5. Pakistan doesn't have an Islamic government, it is secular and a colony of the US-Saudi so I think it is a moot issue, as far as Pakistan goes - since the government has no interest in following Islamic rulings. If the Pakistani government does fund the construction of Muslim places of worship - then they should do the same for non-Muslim - or it should not fund any religious site regardless of religion. Having said that, this is an interesting question - an Islamic government is require to protect the rights of non-Muslims in all matters including worship. If non-Muslims are paying taxe
  6. Very nice! Nicely formatted ... not just a hodge podge - well thought out app!
  7. Zionists are mostly european - or ethiopian (who are also discriminated against by the europeans) - some "middle eastern" types. They came from outside of Palestine and usurped the land of Palestinians. The Palestinians - i.e. the original inhabitants of the land are inclusive of Muslims Christians and Jews (yes there are Jewish Palestinians also). The Palestinians for the most part converted and became Muslims ... those that didn't are Christians and Jews - and yes have equal rights to that land. The people who do not have any right to that land are Zionists who came to land after WWII and p
  8. If anyone is actually interested in reading Marx's Capital - and not whatever nonsense is propogated by capistalist-imperialists for their own benefit - while keeping the population illiterate about how Capitalism actually works - they can take this course: http://davidharvey.org/reading-capital/ After having read at least volume 1 of Capital - folks might actually have a better understanding of what Marx said - and how he demystifies Capitalism - from such nonsense as "hidden hand of the market" and what not...
  9. Also the sermons that are included may not even be complete they are often extracts from what may be much longer narrations. I think al-islam.org has references to the complete narrations.
  10. Have you had this discussion about khums with a scholar, presented your proofs... so they can send it to the marja'yya ? I personally don't have the scholarship necessary to evaluate your statements etc. I doubt it that anyone reading these comments have that level of scholarship. It just brings into question why you are casting doubt on khums? If indeed you do have the level of scholarship to question the current rulings - perhaps you could say a little bit more about yourself, your background, level of study / scholarship etc. Unlike our sunni bros and sisters - Shi'as do have an institution
  11. Yes exactly - it is on the increase or gain of wealth ... if you've never paid khums - then you have to pay the initial 20% on all ... thereafter it is 20% on gain . Thus if you have say savings/wealth of $100... then: Year 1 20% of $100 = $20 Year 2 if your gain is another $100 so now you have $180 total in your account. You pay 20% of $100 = $20 NOT 20% of $180 because khums on $80 has already been paid in year 1. Hope this makes things clearer ... and that Khums is really not that much of a "burden" as people like to make it out to be... maybe because of misundersta
  12. If you google - you'll find several calculators etc. on khums, as well as rulings... here is one: https://zahratrust.com/khums-calculator/#calculate . It is better to google sometimes - rather than ask on this forum where everyone seems to think they know best. Is khums payable on savings I have made for the future? Yes, khums is payable on all savings. Once khums has been paid on a sum, that sum will no longer be liable for khums for as long as it remains. https://www.world-federation.org/news/khums-guide
