    Nurses and doctors see this too. His job sounds commendable too as it is caring for people imcapable of doing so themselves.
    Best to ask your marja @Murtaza1

    Propaganda_of_the_Deed got a reaction from Zainuu in Ex Shia Hassan Shemrani mentions ShiaChat in Youtube video   
    Whilst I fully agree. Naturally many adherents of different faiths get defensive and say similar things like "They were never really a true Christian in the first place" if becoming Muslim over vice verca.
    For example on this guy's Twitter, he has a pinned tweet with follow up replies stating why he believes there is no such thing as an Ex Sunni, as such a person was either jahil or a "quburi" grave worshipper to begin with. Essentially saying the same thing you are just opposite, that only knowledgable Shias become Sunni.
    I mean I was never Sufi inclined when I was Sunni. Just your average Hanafi. Went through a Salafi phase as did a lot of impressionable youth but it didn't last and I grew out of it. Some don't.
    So I guess I fall into the jahil category according to this Shawarma fellow.

    Uploaded last week. He mentions from 3:20 how users in Shiachat reacted to Sayed Ammar avoiding debating with Sunnis, even quotes a post by @Haydar Husayn

    This sort of matches my thread about former Sunnis and influences or practises which still influence their tashayu. Those sort of things also do not sit well with me. Like I said in my thread, I personally do not say the lines about Imam Ali (عليه السلام) in adhan/iqamah, not because I disagree with it factually, just it is not part of the authentic adhan/iqamah.

    Propaganda_of_the_Deed got a reaction from frankfromthewest in I am on the edge of leaving Islam from serious morality doubts   
    You may mean well but you are sugar-coating and that does not do him or anyone favours.
    Being a Quranist is not a solution, secondly falsely claiming the Prophet "forbade slavery" (pretty sure you ironically will need to rely on ahadith to even try to make this claim) is disingenuous.
    And FYI the Qur'an referring to those whom our right hands posess is widely understood to refer to slaves.
    OP should ideally seek help from a learned person in his community. If not, hopefully someone here can address these points individually.

    Propaganda_of_the_Deed got a reaction from feefee_xx in Somalia   
    On paper it is 100% (Sunni) Muslim. Percentage wise, more Muslims than Saudi (given the foreigners working there).
    According to the book Culture and Customs of Somalia by Mohammed Diriye Abdullahi, there are only a few Shia.
    Of course, in the West we have Somali individuals who have become Shia though.

    Propaganda_of_the_Deed got a reaction from feefee_xx in Salafi confronts “ISIS Supporter”   
    This is true, though it may seem like an excuse but Sunnis have it somewhat an easier task in dawah to non-Muslims.
    Simply based around Tahweed and the finality of the Prophethood - of course with additional bits on Qur'an, 5 pillars, status of Eesa (عليه السلام), dispelling myths, etc.
    But once convinced, it is a matter of saying the Shahadah and they have a revert. They do not even need to go into succession, as it is a given for them.
    For Shias, it is these same things, but in additition to talking about Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام), infallible Imams, a Hidden Imam who is currently alive from centuries ago.
    It can probably be overwhelming if not off-putting. Which is why Shiism needs active research and investigating further, it is rarer for a non-Muslim to delve directly to Shiism, generally speaking.
  14. Completely Agree

    Yeah Shamsi, it is a shame no knowledgeable Shia is ever on film challenging him. He tends to go for laypeople lacking in knowledge. People in the comments always big him up too

    His comments section is full of Evangelicals, Athiests, Zionists, Hindu nationalists all united together and expressing their mutual hatred of Islam and Muslims.

    Propaganda_of_the_Deed got a reaction from Northwest in Clerical involvement in the 1953 CIA backed Iranian coup of Mossadegh   
    In the decades long stand-off between US and IRI, critics of Yankee imperialism cite the origins, not to the Embassy hostage crisis not long after the 79 revolution, but justifiably point to the CIA backed coup against populist prime minister Mohammed Mossadegh in 1953.
    Seldomly discussed is the alleged CIA links and involvement that the pre-revolutionary clergy had in the coup.
    Namely Ayatullah Khomeini's predecessor, Ayatullah Kashani. Which appears to be well-documented:

    Now I bring this up as I did not find a thread on ShiaChat regarding the Shia clergy's role in the coup.
    What are your thoughts on this?
    How is Kashani perceived by most Iranians?

    Propaganda_of_the_Deed got a reaction from 313_Waiter in What is your personal proof or validation of Islam?   
    Agreed with you up until this point. I say this because unfortunately many believers display these too.
    In fact one could argue that some Athiestic societies are happier and content and are more hard working and also do more in charitable deeds for the misfortunate than us Muslims.
    Why are Scandinavian countries so clean, yet you go to Muslim immigrant areas in these same countries and the roads are filthy and the areas run down?
     Why are Muslim majority countries rife with litter and filthy streets, why isn't recycling encouraged or animal welfare promoted in our societies? We should be known for being cleaner and being more humane to creatures as it is in our teachings, yet we get put to shame.

    True. I had a Samsung Note 4, for the longest time. I since upgraded (well my old man gave me his old phone) to a Samsung S7 Edge.
    Never had an iPhone nor do I intend to. Hate the user interface of their phones and laptops. Not a fan. Yeah I said it.
