  1. To be fair, in this situation yes. Since we have traditions where prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)'s coming was foretold by previous prophets and thus Allah. We have lots of accounts of men who were patiently awaiting that glorious day and even tested the prophet hood when he was a child. I.E. the Christian monk Bahira and another Jewish Rabbi that comes to mind. "Jesus, the son of Mary, said: 'O children of Israel! Behold, I am an apostle of God unto you, [sent] to confirm the truth of whatever there still remains of the Torah, and to give [you] the glad tiding of an apostle who shall come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad.' (61:6) As for the obligation it comes out of his position and duty. 1. He it is who has sent forth His Apostle with the [task of spreading] guidance and the religion of truth, to the end that He make it prevail over every [false] religion; and none can bear witness [to the truth] as God does. (48:28) 2. BUT IF they turn away [from thee, O Prophet, know that] We have not sent thee to be their keeper: thou art not bound to do more than deliver the message [entrusted to thee]. (42:48) There are several other verses in which the Prophet states himself as a warner with a mission. As for not speaking out of his own desire you're correct due to the following verse as well "Nor does he speak of concupiscent desire. His word is only a Revelation revealed to him." (53:3) But that's only because he's bound by the duty of the first 2 verses posted above. As for the verse you posted (28:56) this is in reference to the outcome of his mission. Once his duty and task as detailed above is complete, then he doesn't need to pursue any further. Sayyid Abbas Sadr-emeli also agrees with me in his tafseer An Enlightening Commentary into the Light of the Holy Qur'an vol. 13 where he states "Divine prophet’s duty is conveying the Messages of Allah to people and showing the right way. Whether people accept or not it does not relate to them. " So this is right because of his careful wording of "present guidance". Your point doesn't really stand.
  2. I'm going to be a bit more harsher in my advice than my brothers. But why do you care? If somebody who I assume was a practicing Shia decides to embrace the path that Shaytan paved for them, then I look forward to God's promise and punishment for them. If I had found any fault in Shia theology I would've left long ago. The amount of mental gymnastics and incorrect assumptions/conclusions your friend jumped to is too infuriating to even write a response to. (Hint: He's wrong on every point). Cut this person off, you're not to be held accountable for someone who rejects the signs of the lord. "Allah has set a seal upon their hearts and upon their hearing, and over their vision is a veil. And for them is a great punishment." (2:7)
  3. It's hilarious to see a man dismissed as a lunatic by his peers return to the mainstream hearts of the Sunni demographic. But yes to answer your question they interpret certain quranic verses to indicate God's physical characteristics. They also have hadith that describe God in a similar fashion to the Christians I.E. made in His image. Another hadith is that He will reveal himself on the Day of Judgement with Muhammad on one side and Muawaiya on the other. Quite funny in my opinion.
  4. Man I did not miss this guys voice. But yeah good points. I still find it ridiculous that modern argument looks back at a society 1500 years old and criticizes customs. Only to spin their own ridiculous and degrading values.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.

  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.

  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
