  1. @Saintly_Jinn23 Missed your birthday at ShiaChat. Hope it was fun for you. :birthday:

  2. The subject of the study was only with respect to how closely the parents were related within particular communities, if you read the source given by the guardian, one subject of study were the Amish and Hutterite communities, communities well known for not just racial uniformity but also for inbreeding. The subject of the study was inbreeding not racial compatibility or the performance of those who are mixed with those who are not.
  3. Say: "The Angel of Death, put in charge of you, will (duly) take your souls: then shall ye be brought back to your Lord." (Surah 32:11) It is He, Who takes your souls by night (when you are asleep), and has knowledge of all that you have done by day, then he raises (wakes) you up again that a term appointed (your life period) be fulfilled, then in the end unto Him will be your return. Then He will inform you what you used to do. (Surah 6:60) It is not ye who slew them; it was Allah: when thou threwest (a handful of dust), it was not thy act, but Allah's: in order that He might test t
  4. I don't think you read the article very well. Nothing in the article first of all says anything about subjects with greater racial diversity necessarily marking higher. Again you are confusing two things that aren't necessarily related. The study was of 350,000 individuals from 100 communities across four continents and concerns only whether parents were more distantly related or not. But this says nothing about the race of the parents as a mixed race child may still have much less diverse gene pool than a non-mixed race child depending on the genetic history of their parents. Also, the a
  5. I think the convert community just needs to organize itself a little better. This way, convert Muslims can feel like they are part of a bonafide Muslim community, but also not feel like they're dependent on the migrant communities too much and also interact and cooperate with these migrant communities with more confidence instead of being self-conscious. I think most of us, even when we share so much in the way of belief with other Muslims of non-white or migrant background, do always still have this sense that somehow we're "different" which is probably why a lot of white or black convert Mus
  6. I think people like yourself have made guys like Yasser Habib a bigger deal than he really is. Honestly, if you think Habib's the biggest excuse for Wahhabi/Salafi nutjobs hate Shi'a and that if we silence him a heavy chunk of these people will suddenly change their minds, you're incredibly naive. We suffer because we are Shi'a and no matter what we do, the takfiri ISIS-loving psychos will always find some excuse to murder us. Spending more time trying to blame some clerical nobody in London who's rejected by virtually all major Shi'a ulama doesn't help our condition at all.
  7. The six pointed star is not the traditional symbol of Judaism and was only adopted by the Jews. Many traditional Orthodox Jews don't use it. The oldest use of the symbol can be traced to Hinduism.
  8. Well, there are some ulama who pretty much think any and every marriage should be arranged (. And I've also noticed these are the same ulama who tend to accept but disapprove of mutah, which is usually the way people get around any restrictions with respect to dating or touching (as if mutah is something we're supposed to feel ashamed of )
  9. Yasser Habib isn't a Zionist just because you don't agree with him
  10. That article actually kind of contradicts itself. For one thing, all the answers to the questions it gives simply state that so long as the purpose is not to seek a kind of "pleasure" there should be no problem and yet it goes on to state any kind of relationship before marriage is thus haram. On top of that, no definition for "pleasure" is actually given. The article's conclusion is based on more than few presumptions and generalizes a bit as I know some of the maraji are more divided on the particularities of this matter than it makes them out to be. For example, Ayatollah Saanei is much mor
  11. I'm not going to argue with the point that the maraji have played a very important role in keeping our religion together, but they aren't the only element. The most important element has been the Shi'a of all classes and disciplines. I have read about it, and I know this incident and the role the maraji played was greatly exaggerated. The truth is many of the ulama who supported the tobacco ban in the late 1800's (not the 1920's) or had urged Sayed Shirazi and others to issue a ban had their own self-interests to worry about, as through their own private land holdings or through waqf l
  12. Thanks. Btw, I'm not saying at all that marrying into the migrant communities is a bad thing or that we should separate from them. But I believe that those of us Muslims who are white, black, latino, asian, etc. who are converts should be allowed to stick together in such a way that provides us with a sense of solidarity and a sense of independence which also allows us to have a much bigger say in the future of Islam in our own home countries. Shouldn't the course of Islam in a particular country where it is being introduced be lead in a good and equitable portion by those who were b
  13. Am I bad for just being more relieved it wasn't another British Muslim who did it?
