  1. Agreed. But they should be aware of it, as you point out.
  2. Wait, the Qu'ran says that we must say the third Shahada as one of the 5 pillars? It mentions Imam Ali by name? Can you please point this to me? This is all I could find on the matter: https://en.wikishia.net/view/Third_Testimony
  3. Interesting, I appreciate people that can see the similarities and common ground between our two sects. Will go back and watch these videos later when I have more time.
  4. InshAllah Allah will ease her burden of illness. Has she gone for Umrah or Hajj?
  5. Replay https://www.sarabrewer.com/masterclass-replay? Of note, it wasn't as helpful. She was selling a bigger course. Still might be worth a view for some.
  6. I have never heard of a third Shahadah. As far as I know, there is only one Shahada. Seems like anything else would have to have been fabricated well after the completion of Islamic revelations, and thus has no bearing on someone being Muslim or not. I also don't see how the Sunnis are the enemies of the Ahlulbayat... We need to stop viewing Sunnis as the enemy, and they need to stop viewing us as the enemy. Just focus on being better people and living in the example of the prophet.
  7. https://www.al-islam.org/inquiries-about-shia-islam-sayyid-moustafa-al-qazwini/who-are-shia For future reference, if anyone needs it.
  8. There's nothing wrong with avoiding meat if you don't have easy access to halal meat. You can eat fish, eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, nuts, etc., for protein. Sure, meat is tasty, but especially in this day and age, being a vegetarian isn't as hard as it used to be.
  9. Good day Shiachat. I saw this Masterclass posted online and thought I'd share it. It appears to be a free class by someone named Sara Brewer on how to overcome pornography. It's occurring in 8 hours, or so, as of my posting. Sorry for posting so late. Hopefully some of y'all can still partake. From what I can tell, she has a faith based component to it (likely some Christian denomination). I would suggest it to any of our youth, even if you don't currently watch it. I have no affiliation with the course, and do not know anything about it. But I figure it's worth it for being free. https://www.sarabrewer.com/freeclass-fbook? If there's a better subforum to post, could one of the admins please move. Thanks
  10. This is true. And I will ask them sometimes. The vast majority of Sunni girls that see my profile and message me say "no thanks" as soon as they find out I'm Shia. So it fixes itself pretty often. But this one girl I was talking to started asking questions, and when I answered them, she was like "it doesn't seem like we should be so different." And it's for those that I would like to potentially explore more with. Yeah, I'm certainly not ignoring shia girls. But the vast, vast majority I have come across that are within my age range are either not religious at all, or view me as not Shia enough for them. All excellent points. I definitely agree that people don't change. And in the rare instance that they do, they can always change back. Gotta marry them for who they are today. Not trying to marry someone to convince them about Shias, but I mean if someone is otherwise pious, and of good character, and we get along great for multiple reasons, then if I can get them to accept my views, and we can come to an agreement on raising kids, and all the other issues, then why not try?
  11. It's tough being alone. Believe me, I have lived in many places where I was the only Muslim for miles, with no masjid for over 100 miles. But you know what helps is being others that still believe in God. Even if they're Christian or Jew, they still believe in God. Try and find a group of religious Christians/Jews to hang around, and at least you'll be reminded of God. What's bad is hanging around lots of atheists or agnostics. That will most definitely start pulling you away from religion.
  12. It's cool that you think that, although it is technically opinion. But that doesn't make Sunnis any less of Muslims. I'd rather marry a practicing sunni than a shia who is muslim in name only.
  13. I have no preference of Sunnis over Shias. I simply want someone that is Muslim and compatible with me. Sunni/Shia is a man-made distinction. All relevant practices and preferences should be discussed prior to marriage.
  14. Came across this link written by a Sunni girl who married a Shia boy. Just her perspective on how they made it work. https://aquila-style.com/my-sunni-shia-marriage-isnt-easy-but-not-as-thorny-as-youd-think/
  15. Well, I don't know if the market exists. Like I feel like Muslims will say we should, and you'll get a lot of support, but they won't actually watch it. Most will still watch the more entertaining sex/violence/obscenities. Or if they do they'll probably bootleg it since we're so cheap. And finding Islamic sponsors for commercials would also be difficult.
