  1. on facebook millions are sharing this but i find it controversial. lacks haya
  2. Can you bring hadith and quran about this? I am not as dum as i seem :-) the points are implied in my OP. allow me, allow me to say more the fatwas of marja say you can shake if it bring unbearable harm. problem is they live in qum and cant tell us what is unbearabel harm here. yes i speel things badly on purpose. islam says give ur religion a good image. islam says have good manners. islam had different laws in makka and madina. different places have different laws. first muslims didnt do all things because society would reject it. later in madina islam more established then more laws brought in. islam says protect lives of muslims. this is one way to do it. people think we are not mean and nasty. islam says bring people to islam. we dont do this by being rude. islam says muslims should not be ostricisted ifrom josb in society. not hand shaking does this.
  3. https://www.facebook.com/eisa.ali/posts/10158786356160621 Look at that video! disabled woman came from across city to meet imam of mosque. now the marja will say dont shake hands. its haraam! respectfully marja lives in qum and not west, his fatwa must change.
  4. some people say the womans march was about abortion and bad stuff and some good stuff
  5. oh absolutely agree ... but it doesnt really work like that. religious youth dont like to hurt their parents . i have been accepted by girls a few times and rejected by their parents because of race. also you got to remember most times you need to go to the father first and not the girl. father says no before you meet her. but hey that i experienced some years ago ... has the community improved? is it worth trying again?
  6. i come from a small shia community and there are not many suitable spouses to choose from ... so a few years back i tried other communities ... but i found people said no just because of race. recently i met a senior person in one community who said now people are more open minded. is this true??? i dont want to go back to those mosques to get to know them only to waste my time getting rejected again. tbh i found liberals were not as bad as religious folks who insist their daughter marries a najafi lol. so have you seen changes or is it terrible like before?
  7. i got introduced to a good girl. i met her many times but not sure if attracted .... i cant decide. i think its the hijab. does it make a big difference? like with shape of the face? can hijab make someone look bad????
  8. look what i found!! did someone leak the video to the press because non muslim press dont listen to majalis from 6 years back!!!!! leaker in the shia community https://confusiontoday.wordpress.com/the-response-part-2/ Here it is important to mention a person called Mustafa Field, also known as Mustafa Field MBE. Mustafa Field MBE Mustafa Field proudly brandishes the tile of being a “Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire,” as shown on his Linked-In Page. Mustafa Field has also been given awards by the Queen in 2012, and is on her birthday honor list. (See Guardian Newspaper: Dated Friday June 15th2012.19.05 EDT, Queen’s birthday honour’s list 2012) Relevant to our discussion is an excerpt from a lengthy Facebook post of Mr. Field (which we invite everyone to read in its entirety), dated October 15 at 10:10pm which states: “I am aware of the perception that I threw the Shaykh under the bus. That was not in any way my intention – I seek only to protect my community.” However, this seems contrary to twitter posts that Mr. Field deleted, but have been preserved by some steadfast believers. Saying “We Don’t Want You Here #Sodagar” does not seem to be the kind of language someone would openly post for the world to see if they were seeking to not “throw the Shaykh under the bus.” When Mr. Field says “I Seek Only to Protect My Community” it appears that clarification is needed. These next tweets make it pretty clear who he is willing to defend, and who he is willing to abandon, once pressure came from the British government and LGBT groups whom he so desperately seeks to appease. Pay Close Attention That The Tweets Are Directed To Maajid Nawaz and Peter Tatchell.
  9. the mortgage fatwa makes no sense and contradicts the other fatwas. why is mortagage allowed if you can rent?? renting does not bring extreme hardships ... then mortgage is allowed but business loan haram??? i am confused
  10. This law is silly. I need money to start a business, to buy a 2nd home and ... get a degree. Seestani wont give me the loan himself so i have to ask a bank. If i don't get a degree then its not extreme hardship because i can work as a cleaner all my life. Seestani wants all muslims to be cleaners? BTW i have a degree but just saying the law is silly. these marjas need to wake up and smell the truth. http://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01239/ Question: Can I a take bank loan knowing that the bank will charge interest? Answer: Taking an interest based loan is not permissible except for when it is very urgent; it is necessary that he should do so with the intention that it is a transaction without return, even if he knows that he will end up paying the capital as well as the interest. And he should not do so with the intention of getting the loan with the condition of paying interest. Question: What is the [minimum] limit of the difficulty (al-haraj) that lifts the prohibition? Is exorbitant price [for a halãl item] that could still be bought with [financial] strain or by getting a loan a [valid] example that would make a harãm [but cheap alternative] item permissible religiously? Answer: The circumstances are different in this [case], and the criterion is the extreme hardship that is not normally tolerable.
  11. this guy is a bigshot british shia man with community standing .... did he really say this? is this the way forward?? taqiyyah about homosexuality?
  12. this stuff by jonathan brown cant be true cant it? muslim societies had too many gays? http://almadinainstitute.org/blog/the-shariah-homosexuality-safeguarding-each-others-rights-in-a-pluralist-so/ " Of course, Muslim jurists knew that homosexuality existed all around them. " " Muslim scholars and judges agreed that Liwat was a grievous sin, but it was too widespread not to treat it with humor. And appreciating male beauty was not unknown to them. A thirteenth-century scholar visiting Cairo from Bukhara would play on his own name and the famously strict criteria that the great Hadith scholar al-Bukhari had for evaluating the soundness of Hadith. When this scholar saw a handsome boy he would say, ‘This is sound according to the criteria of al-Bukhari!”[14] An influential ninth-century Sunni scholar and chief judge of Baghdad was well known for delighting in encountering handsome young men – and writing poetry about it - to the extent that a critic devoted a whole poem to “a judge who would apply the Hudud punishment for adultery but who sees nothing wrong with Liwat.” But all of this was just fodder for the judge’s banter with the caliph during their meetings.[15] " " Anyone who has read any Persian poetry, read a forthright travel guide to the Gulf or heard Pakistanis or Afghans joking knows that same-sex attraction and activity has not been unusual in Muslim societies. A wealth of top quality scholarship has demonstrated that Islam, Muslim societies and the Shariah tradition did not conceive of ‘homosexuality’ as an identity. But they did acknowledge that same-sex attraction occurred, often for ‘natural’ reasons (e.g. it was considered normal for men to be attracted to beardless youths, who shared feminine beauty). "
