    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.

    Also the very concept of an "Islamic state" is actually a very modern idea, relatively speaking. Especially as it was modelled on the Western idea of the nation-state. Calls for an Islamic state only became prevalent after the collapse of the Ottoman empire (caliphate depending on who you speak to), and the subsequent failure to re-establish it, in addition to the independence of former colonies of the West.
     
    The idea of an 'Islamic Republic' is also arguably an oxymoron, given that the sovereignty belongs to God and not the people.

    The risk of that of course, is the lqbtxyz, Feminism Liberal inclusivism that all comes with it.
    Also we need to do more in terms of propagating the authentic message of Islam. Slowly but surely.

    Christian belief has halved in Britain in 35 years with just one in three people now identifying as Christian - while atheism and Islam continue to rise.
    Figures published by the British Social Attitudes Survey reveal the widest ever margin between staunch atheists and believers who are certain that God exists. Of almost 4,000 people polled by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen), 38 per cent described themselves as Christian - a fall from 50 per cent in 2008 and 66 per cent in 1983.
    Those identifying as Muslim increased from 1 per cent in 1983 to 3 per cent in 2008, and 6 per cent in 2018.
    The survey shows that the biggest change is in the number of people who define themselves as "confident atheists", which rose from 10 per cent in 1998 to 18 per cent in 2008 and its record high of 26 per cent in 2018.
    In contrast, researchers found that an overall 55 per cent of the population express some sort of belief in some kind of God.
    Nancy Kelley, deputy chief executive at NatCen, said that the steady decline in religion and belief among the British public is "one of the most important trends in post-war history".  
    "As our society has become more secular, the role of religious institutions and religious identities in determining our moral and social norms has weakened. Other world views, such as scientific rationalism and liberal individual-ism, now play a more significant part in British society."
    The report's authors said the survey suggests Britain is becoming more secular "not because adults are losing their religion" but because older people with an attachment to Christian denominations are "gradually being replaced in the population by unaffiliated younger people".
    They added that religious decline in Britain is "generational" as people tend to be less religious than their parents.
    Dave Male, the Church of England's director of evangelism and discipleship, said: "For many people ticking a box marked 'Church of England' or 'Anglican' is now an active choice and no longer an automatic response. In spite of this, the Church of England remains at the heart of communities."  
    Andrew Copson, the chief executive of the non-religion charity Humanists United Kingdom, said: "With these trends set to continue, policymakers in every field, from education to constitutional law, to health and social care, need to wake up to such dramatic social changes."

    Certainly Atheism and apostacy is on the rise, as a general worldwide trend too, even in the Muslim heartlands.
    And in this report, it is Atheism which has seen the greatest percentage increase. Islam is growing at a much slower rate. Even then, as we said, most converts find themselves exposed to Salafism due to funding and widespread propagation.

    When you try to crack down and suppress truth, it will only embolden and further the cause. The entire history of the Shia is full of governmental suppression, restrictions, oppression hostility and martyrdom. Yet it survives.

    Best example in modern times, is that before the 80s there were virtually no Shia in Africa's most populated state - Nigeria.
    Fast forward today, a big part due to Qom educated Shaikh Zakzaky (May Allah protect him), the Shia of Nigeria are about 3 million strong and growing. This is truly phenomenal.
    Even here at my centre you see many East African reverts from Sunni backgrounds and their offspring raised as Shia.

    I know it becomes increasingly difficult to distinguish, but most Sunnis are not Salafi/Wahabbis.
    My friends who are non Salafi Sunnis are still my friend since informing them I changed to Shia.
    Your experiences naturally inform your decision, but not all Sunnis are like how you describe.
