Patient Warrior's Achievements

  1. They only care what you think when you regurgitate what they've been promoting. Can anyone confirm these rumors I'm hearing by the way? I heard that the Taliban has been going to Shia events and showing solidarity with them for Muharram? Some Iraqis have been posting videos of this all over my parents facebooks. Not saying that these thugs are redeemable but in the event they establish some trust or boundaries with Shia that go beyond just cutting their heads off. Well then I can at least call that somewhat good news?
  2. Sad reality is that the game is so rigged that any 3rd party candidates will never get representation. Not even invited to debates and usually they stir up a small crowd before completing the pattern by dropping out and endorsing whichever Democrat or Republican aligns with their view. Communism doesn't work. What we need is regulated capitalism and a strong socialist system implemented for those finding it hard to compete in the free market. I.E. welfare, foodstamps etc. In which we DON'T we don't make people welfare dependent by immediately cutting them off the moment they start saving up or doing well. Absolutely ridiculous. I just want a libertarian approach. The government should only really get involved for those who can't speak for themselves like animals, children, elderly with dementia etc. It should be a pillar to lean on if needed not a damn burden on everyone's shoulders.
  3. Won't keep my hopes up. That entire country just became a failed state. Worst of all if other countries begin to acknowledge the Taliban as a legitimate government forefront which they will because of this peaceful transition of power, then nobody is going to do anything. They'll probably just milk the situation as a way of further destabilizing the middle east. Because we know Sunni extremism doesn't stop at borders.
  4. Patience till next year? But no seriously, set a goal for yourself in one year time. Try to have a dramatic change in your motivation, discipline, personality and soul. Do it for the sake of Prophet Muhammad and his family (Peace be upon them). This way Inshallah when you're doing Ziyarah for Imam Ali ((عليه السلام).) on Eid Al-Ghadeer, you can be proud of the man the Ahlulbayt has made you.
  5. Agree! There is no gay gene. It's just propaganda to bend the narrative that the infallible God made them that way and religious folk should be accommodating. A literal fallacy. Study done on a large sample size of 470,000 leads to the following result; “There is no ‘gay gene’ that determines whether someone has same-sex partners,” says Andrea Ganna, a geneticist at … MIT and Harvard … . Family studies have suggested that genetics account for about 32 percent of heritability of homosexual behavior. But each … [gene] has a very small effect on whether someone has ever had a same-sex sexual partner, the new research found." It's completely environmental and social. Mental Illness being promoted on the front lines of society as acceptable. Thus the devil is having a field day tempting. Full study can be found; https://science.sciencemag.org/content/365/6456/eaat7693
  6. Shia say this but it's almost impossible to socialize nowadays without bringing up someone else is affairs. Refusal to participate ostracizes you and usually you become the center of their gossip in their next conversation. Every single gathering is the same of just sitting there serving tea and listening to politics, gossip, whose graduated, whose gotten married/divorced, bought a house, got a promotion etc. I'm seeing this a lot with the Arab community but less so with Americans I interact with funny enough. OP, try to break the cycle by not participating in it regardless of who's being targeted; Shia or not.
  7. It's more absurd to me that people believe the Prophet gathered all the chief Arabs so that he could tell them Ali was his friend.
  8. Eid Al-Ghadeer Mubarak to all the Shia!

    Peace be upon you prince of the believers. May your station in the heavens reflect evermore what was robbed from you on earth. I look forward to visiting you soon when I travel to Iraq.

  9. No they're not. Reference Sistani's Q/A; Question: Is it permissible for men to wear white or yellow gold? Answer: It is not permissible for men to wear gold objects, even though the gold may be white in color. Wearing gold plated objects is also not allowed and prayer wearing gold would not be valid for men. However, there is no problem in wearing something made of platinum. https://www.sistani.org/english/qa/01196/ I have also heard of hadith from the Imams cursing men that wear gold.
  10. Don't have the names on me but I can find out. It was about two hours south in my state where our capitol building Is. So not local to where I'm from. But it was the all the talk of the arabs for a couple of weeks. Pretty positive it wasn't a Shia masjid though. I found a phone case that's pretty much identical to the shirt. https://www.spreadshirt.com/shop/design/allah+is+gay+rainbow+kaaba+iphone+7+8+plus+case-D5e9032b91cbf3a24c8609cf9?sellable=Zbra1LrzRVFGE8GBBDjE-1189-38 Nvm found the shirt via google actually being sold on an atheist website; https://www.atheistrepublic.com/store/allah%2Bis%2Bgay%2Brainbow%2Bkaaba-A5e9032b91cbf3a24c8609cf9?productType=210&sellable=Zbra1LrzRVFGE8GBBDjE-210-7&appearance=1 You can even google Muslim LGBT solidarity to see them sporting other gear. @Diazlinked a thread above highlighting this more.
  11. I suspect fear of backlash. Mob mentality plays a critical role in tolerating the entire circus charade of blatant blasphemy. Cancel culture and social media exposure has organizations on their knees. Religion itself is going through a negative reform of sorts by today's generation. Conservative ideas are being targeted as halting progress etc. But shhhhh it's starting to sound like a conspiracy.
  12. This is an excellent mindset. Majority of this alliance between LGBT and Muslims stems from a sense of community. This feeling of coming under one banner because "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" is a fallacy built on predicates that contradict Shia Islam's core principles. We should always strive to tell God's truth regardless of whose feelings or identity is compromised. The actions of the LGBT community is a disease. It has brought society; gender confusion, public display of degeneracy, STDs, harming indoctrination of children, fear of cancel culture and blasphemy. OP, instead of alluding that the moderators should silence very reasonable voices maybe you should make an account and participate in those discussions. Since the topics are complete conspiracies and contradictory to Islam you should have no issue stating your case and completely dismantling the opposition. My cousin's son is in elementary and as for a school trip they took them to the capitol building of our state where they surprised them by participating in a Pride Rally event. The organizers were passing out shirts with both Christian and Muslim solidarity since the event was supported by a local Church and Mosque. Christian shirt had a picture of Jesus placing a homosexual couple's hands together. The Muslim shirt was the Ka'bah decorated with the LGBT flag and the statement that ended with a 3 letter word "Allah is ..." God forgive us. I was told the PTA meeting was met with joy by most parents.
  13. I agree with you. But If we were to observe this from a logical standpoint this is the outcome; Jihad Al-Akbar is a requirement upon every single Muslim. "Children of Adam, did I not command you not to serve Satan, for he was your sworn enemy" 36:60. This battle is mandatory upon you and me until death over takes us. This isn't a sacrifice as much as it a large portion of being Muslim. You can't just take this definition and use the "Akbar" vs "Asghar" argument to show that it trumps the other. Even after re observing Imam Khomeini's book on the matter he never states this. You obviously will be participating in one more than the other. Now by definition I've literally stated that it is a subset to performing Jihad Al-saif since one is compulsory and the other is not unless called upon an Imam to participate. Once again because you never quoted it; "This starts from detachment of life, ambition and luxury". This is important and must be reinstated because in order to participate in a Jihad Al-Saif you must demonstrate obedience to God and the willingness to sacrifice the most valuable thing an individual possesses which is his life. Often these kinds of opportunities present when the easier route would be to ignore and be patient. Again I'm going to say it; you're doing a huge disservice to the Shuhadat that have demonstrated mastery of Jihad Sabil Allah. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Holy Prophet (S) said: "No drop is more beloved with Allah, Almighty and Glorious, than the drop of blood which is poured in the way of Allah. Wasa'il-ush Shi'ah, vol. 15, p. 14 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Holy Prophet (S) said: "There is a goodness above any goodness until when a believing person, (fighting against the enemies of Islam who slaughter Muslims), is killed in the way of Allah, Almighty and Glorious, then there is no goodness above it." Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 10, p. 100 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The context of this entire thread has been about self-defense? I haven't observed anyone here speak otherwise. So I'm unsure what you're trying to demonstrate with the remainder of the ayat. None of us are advocating for the Salafi ideology of Jihad of attacking first. (See above) I've made my points clear. I'm not advocating for anything beyond the reasonable and what Allah has deemed appropriate and loved in his eyes. I'll just regurgitate my previous point here so again see above. There is no greater honor than to die in the path of Allah. There's a reason martyrs have a higher position than those who weren't on the day of judgement. Don't forget our entire religion is built on the predicate that the Mahdi will return and instate Allah's justice. Do you think this will be done with peaceful assemblies and debates? We the Shia are not in the wrong for ever defending our Ummah but obviously this must be done within the margins we both defined earlier.
  14. I'd say scholars, natural born leaders and masculine mumineen are definitely out there among our youth. The same way not every woman is like the ones that I interact with; full of vanity, malevolence, manipulators, degenerates and gold diggers. We shouldn't deal with absolutes even if sometimes generalization is called for. It only takes one counter example to nullify a universal quantifier. It's a serious problem on both sides of the genders and there are many factors contributing to this divide that we're seeing. Masculinity and femininity are being redefined. I attribute this to the activities of feminists and LGBT blurring those lines. Nobody is willing to bring up the true attributes that makes a partner attractive and appealing because it boils down to sexism. Thus the nuclear family is being expunged at an alarming rate. This generation has to deal with the technological revolution and its ramification on social conventions and interactions. I return again to social media because it seriously has changed the dynamic in which one is capable of outreaching to multiple people. Saw a study that showed quite a large portion of American children today are wrong about who their biological father is. Cheating has become the norm and sometimes would be overlooked because it was the partner who was lacking. I've seen that reverse uno card played several times.
  15. Never had the pleasure of interacting with you, but welcome back!
