  1. My mother is telling me that there was some sort of an explosion at a plant (not sure whether Nuclear or not) in Iran. I haven't heard anything about this on here, anybody have any information? @Ashvazdanghe do you have any data on this? I'm curious because there has been some sort of a nuclear release (non life threatening) somewhere over the past week or so, as elevated levels of caesium and ruthenium along with some other artificial nuclides detected in Sweden, Finland, and Estonia but so far out of 47 countries reporting, nobody knows where the release has come from. Wondering maybe if the first event did happen, if it's related to the nuclear material release. Thanks in advance
  2. isn't it a bit hypocritical of Iran to be criticising the USA in the midst of the BLM protests while they themselves are violating human rights by allegedly killing Afghans? 1. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-afghanistan-iran-migrants-exclusive/exclusive-afghan-lawmakers-say-45-migrants-drowned-after-iranian-guards-forced-them-into-river-idUSKBN22J26U 2. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/05/iran-forces-accused-drowning-afghans-pandemic-200503144241565.html 3. https://www.rferl.org/a/iranian-border-guards-accused-of-torturing-drowning-afghan-migrants/30595702.html 4. https://www.avatoday.net/node/10210

  4. Sallam. May someone please inform me of any 'Persian' mosque or TV channel that is allowing anyone to recite lines of latmiyas, poetry etc? I am willing to recite lines on any live program insha'Allah. Please mention opportunities in the comments, it would help me alot. Thanks.
  5. Assalam o Alaikum In the name of Allah most high. I have questions about, requirements for men entering howza. 1. What kind of requirements are there when it comes to your appearance like hair, clothes and style. 2. Should you as a man shave your head off before traveling to any hawza in Asia? 3. Should you grow beard?
  6. As-Salamu-Alaykum Many Sunnis look up to previous Khilafah, like the Ottoman Empire, and whilst we lament some of the actions taken near the end (e.g. Tanzimat reform), we generally appreciate these previous Muslim Empires in their general outlook. I understand that Shi'a/Iranians dislike the Pahlavi dynasty, but what do you think of the dynasty before it? In fact are there any Shi'ite empires/kingdom you guys look up to and admire as good/ok historical examples of an Islamic state - or is that not important for you guys?
  7. Salam alaykoum friends, I study politics and I am working on a paper regarding the Houthi ideology and specially the relation with Iran. I am trying to present the ideological importance of the Islamic Revolution in Iran in the conflict now in Yemen (not regarding military help or anything, but ideological affinity and inspiration), I need to find writings/sermons/interviews regarding this topic. I have heard of a book, or writings called "Bright Pages of the Life of the Martyred Leader Hussein Badr al-Din al–Houthi" in which al-Houthi would speak of its affinity with Khomeini's mission and ideology. Any suggestions on this topic would be greatly appreciated. Be blessed and ma'a salâma
  8. Can there be understanding, tolerance and mutual respect toward Salafis and Salafism under the, in the Islamic Republic of Iran anyway, oft-propounded ideal of Islamic Unity?

  14. gon rejects Trump threat to hit Iranian cultural sites The Pentagon is distancing itself from President Donald Trump’s assertions that he would bomb Iranian cultural sites By LOLITA C. BALDOR Associated Press January 6, 2020, 9:30 PM 4 min read FILE — In this Jan. 19, 2019 file photo the shrine of Iran's revolutionary founder Ayatollah Khomeini is seen, just outside of Tehran, Iran. The ancient and rich cultural landscape of Iran has become a potential U.S. military target as Washington and Tehran stumble toward a possible open conflict. Iran, home to 24 UNESCO World Heritage sites, has in the past reportedly guarded the sprawling tomb complex of the Islamic Republic's founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, with surface-to-air missiles. (AP Photo/Ebrahim Noroozi, File) FILE — In this Jan. 19, 2019 file photo the shrine of Iran's revolutionary founder Ayatollah Khomeini is seen, just outside of Tehran, Iran. The ancient and rich cultural landscape of Iran has become a potential U.S. military target as Washington and Tehran stumble toward a possible open conflict. Iran, home to 24 UNESCO World Heritage sites, has in the past reportedly guarded the sprawling tomb complex of the Islamic Republic's founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, with surface-to-air missiles. (AP Photo/Ebrahim Noroozi, File)The Associated Press WASHINGTON -- The Pentagon on Monday distanced itself from President Donald Trump’s assertions that he would bomb Iranian cultural sites despite international prohibitions on such attacks. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said the U.S. will “follow the laws of armed conflict.” When asked if that ruled out targeting cultural sites, Esper said pointedly, “That’s the laws of armed conflict.” The split between the president and his Pentagon chief came amid heightened tensions with Tehran following a U.S. drone strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force. Trump had twice warned that he would hit Iranian cultural sites if Tehran retaliates against the U.S. Esper’s public comments reflected the private concerns of other defense and military officials, who cited legal prohibitions on attacks on civilian, cultural and religious sites, except under certain, threatening circumstances. Trump first raised the prospect of targeting cultural sites in a tweet on Saturday and reiterated that view to reporters the next day. “We have targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD," he tweeted. His Twitter message caught administration officials off-guard and prompted an immediate outcry from legal scholars, national security experts and Democratic lawmakers. But the president stood by his threat the following day. “They’re allowed to kill our people. They’re allowed to torture and maim our people. They’re allowed to use roadside bombs and blow up our people,” he told reporters traveling with him on Air Force One. “And we’re not allowed to touch their cultural sites? It doesn’t work that way.” By international law, however, it does. Specifically, the 1954 Hague Convention says nations must “take all possible steps” to protect cultural property and shall refrain “from any act of hostility, directed against such property.” It also says nations must not use cultural sites for any threatening purposes that would make such locations a military target. The Pentagon has long had a list of potential targets both inside Iran as well as those associated with Iran throughout the Middle East. Those targets and war plans are routinely updated, including during the recent uptick in hostilities. Officials won’t discuss the list, but it is certain to include an array of Iranian military sites and capabilities, including missile, air defense and command and control locations. Any targets would go through a lengthy vetting process within the military and the Pentagon to determine that they are legal, appropriate and proportionate to any Iranian action. Only after that process is complete would a list of potential sites go before the president for approval. Outside the Pentagon, Trump's threats were met with condemnation. “It shows that he is somewhat deranged about this," said Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va. “The pledge to attack cultural sites, likely, is a violation of international law.” Kaine said that all Trump is doing “is escalating tensions and he seems to believe, 'I can strike you, but you can't strike me.' That's not the way the world works.” He added that Trump needs to confer with Congress. The threats also drew reaction from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. “The targeting of sites of global cultural heritage is abhorrent to the collective values of our society,” museum leaders said in a statement. "At this challenging time, we must remind ourselves of the global importance of protecting cultural sites – the objects and places by which individuals, communities, and nations connect to their history and heritage. Ahead of Esper’s comments, other administration officials tried to make clear that the U.S. would follow the law without directly contradicting the president. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday said that any U.S. military strikes inside Iran would be legal. “We'll behave inside the system,” Pompeo said. “We always have and we always will.” ——— Associated Press writers Matthew Lee, Robert Burns and Aamer Madhani contributed to this report.

  17. As I am sure we are familiar with the revolution of 1979 in Iran where Ayatollah Sayed Khomeini implemented the system of Wilayatul Faqih in the newly founded Islamic Republic of Iran. Is there any evidence that would suggest that this system was ever used by the Imams of the Ahlul Bayt? With mass protests in Iran and now into Iraq is this showing that this system has failed?
  18. Salam Aleikom, I recently made a video on Iran and North Korea's friendship and how it began. Feedback is greatly appreciated. You can check out the video by clicking on the thumbnail below or clicking here. How Iran and North Korea became the best of friends in an age of imperialism, and challenged the world. What are the origins of this strange relationship and how does it endure? This vlog is about how Iran and North Korea became the best of friends in an age of imperialism. Information on Iran and North Korea is pretty hard to come by. And there's a reason for that. Both of these countries were born out of revolution and war. They insist on their national sovereignty, their economic, cultural and military independence. And that culminates into both of them being a thread to the American Grand Strategy, its global imperialism and the imposed hegemonic order of Bretton Woods. But these countries are more than just strategic partners in light of an American threat. The Islamic Republic and the People's Democratic Republic of Korea, they generally like each other. What are the origins of this strange relationship and how does it endure? This vlog is about how Iran and North Korea became the best of friends in an age of imperialism.
  19. Donald Trump should be mindful of Saddam Hussein’s experience invading Iran nearly forty years ago, lest he endure the same fate. Do not threaten us with war, we are alive We have entrusted our swords with our answer to you The word ‘surrender’ has been erased from our vocabulary These were the words passionately chanted by a Shiite Maddahi performer in Iran in September 2018. As a part of commemorating the holy month of Muharram, Shiites often gather and listen to eulogistic tributes to their archetypal hero, Imam Hossein. Ashura—marking the tenth day of Muharram—is a day of lamentation, as Shiites the world over memorialize the martyrdom of Hossein and the epic tale from seventh-century Karbala that came to define their religion and inform their worldview. https://nationalinterest.org/blog/middle-east-watch/Trump’s-Iran-policy-needs-history-lesson-77011
  20. I know that all major news media channels are showing us anti-Iran propaganda, giving us the image that the Iranians are against their government and I know that is not true but I do also know that there might be a minority of secular Iranians that want a dajjalic world government in the stead of their current government, but what I would really like to see is interviews with the common people of Iran in regards to their thoughts on the political situation, feelings and stances on all this. I don't want interviews with a bunch of Iranian millennials that speak English fluently and are fantasizing about getting drunk in the US or going wild in another country, I want to see an interview with the cashier of a local humble convenience store (ordinary people that make up the majority) expressing his/her dismay about the politics but bearing with it for the sake of what is right.
  21. Hi, I live in the UK and I study Law and sociology at university. Can anyone tell me a link to a website or any information on how to get entry to Qom Hawza, I am looking to start full time education at Qom hawza after I finish my Law degree.

I heard it was free and they give you accommodation as well as spending money. the qomicis.org website isn't working for me I don't know why, if you could tell me why I would be grateful. Thanks everyone.
  22. Is Iran's 'Dark Knight' supporting the nuclear talks? Shadowy Man, Dark Knight, Living Martyr and Haj Qasem are just a few of the monikers of Gen. Qasem Soleimani — Iran's top military man in the Middle East and commander of the Quds Force. Though Soleimani has become famous these days in the regional and world media due to his war against the Islamic State (IS), he was previously relatively unknown in the region — only familiar to those influential and knowledgeable people in the region. These days, he mostly spends his time in Iraq. Iranian officials have confirmed that Soleimani is now advising the Iraqi army and volunteer Shiite troops on fighting IS. The Associated Press reports that Soleimani doesn't wear a flak jacket on the battlefield and that he has restored Iraqi sovereignty to several major cities. Nazem Dabbagh, the parliamentary representative of Iran's Kurdistan region, told an Iranian magazine that Soleimani doesn't stay within the walls of the palace or luxury hotels. He doesn't merely sit and give orders; he is always present on the battlefield. According to the BBC, Iran and America have divided operations in Iraq: Tehran fights on the ground, and America fights in the sky. Soleimani’s appearances alongside Badr and peshmerga troops in Iraq is confirmation of Iran’s presence in Iraq, which, according to Iranian military officials, is limited to advice and planning strategies. Soleimani’s role has been so prominent that, according to Iran’s former ambassador to the United Nations, Sadeq Kharrazi, US Secretary of State John Kerry has called for a meeting with him, and President Barrack Obama has addressed him as a "respectable enemy." Some Iranian officials also believe that his presence in Iraq can influence the nuclear talks.

  24. Read the Reddit comments to understand what the thread was about, since the post has since been deleted. ....................................................................................... I'm so tired of the utterly nonsensical and VERY COMMON Sunni notion of 'I am happy to seek unity with Shias as long as they don't curse/insult/abuse any Sahaba, and especially NOT Aisha, Abu Bakr, Omar, Uthman. Firstly, any Shia claim regarding the sahabi that happens to go against the Sunni narrative is considered insulting. Secondly, and more importantly, is that the same notion is true for Shias... You are insulting the Ahlul Bayt by not accepting them as divinely appointed leaders of Allah, and infallible individuals, and perfect preservers of the religion of Islam, and a high means of seeking closeness to Allah (intercession). Not only are you insulting revered Shia figures by not following them, you are commiting MAJOR shirk by giving a false attribute to Allah, by saying that Allah has not always appointed an infallible leader on this Earth, and that there currently isn't an infallible leader. Furthermore, the real kicker is that plenty of revered Shia figures, such as Abu Talib (رضي الله عنه), are considered kuffar by Sunnis. Is this not insulting? So, how can we Shias unite with Sunnis based on their own fallacious logic? Shias are the minority, and Sunnis are the majority. It makes Sunnis think that they are Orthodox and that they have to unite with Heterodox for political and humanitarian reasons, and that Shias must make [ridiculous] compromises. Shias are far more receptive to the unity message, because we actually understand Sunni Islam, and can see the commonalities. We understand that we can't make Sunnis compromise on their beliefs. Simply by being the minority within Islam, by nature we Shias already understand Sunni beliefs, whereas Sunnis have a basic strawman understanding of Shia beliefs... which is natural, considering that they are the majority. Anyways, the point of my post is the following: Let's compile a list of revered Shia figures that are not given their proper status by Sunnis, according to Shia Islam... with an explanation given. ...This is to show that we Shias and Sunnis can unite, but we cannot unite upon revered figures and imamah. ...This will also serve as a way of showing Sunnis that this argument of theirs makes no sense. Another important question we may ask is "What about commonly revered figures like Imam Ali (عليه السلام) who is given different status in both sects? Can we unite upon Imam Ali (عليه السلام)?" ...a common Sunni criticism of political unity is that "Ali ibn Abi Talib (رضي الله عنه) is given an improper status in Shia religion because they call upon him... tawassul (intercession) of the 'dead' is Shirk! So there is absolutely no room for unity since we can't even agree on the status of the sahabi" [yes, I am aware that the Imams (عليه السلام) are still alive, but Sunnis don't believe this...] I would love to hear your thoughts. Wassalam. JazakAllah Khair. Fi sabilillah.
  25. How accurate is the following statement by the Government of Canada 'Department of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness' regarding Hizbullah??? Please help, thanks. https://www.publicsafety.gc.ca/cnt/ntnl-scrt/cntr-trrrsm/lstd-ntts/crrnt-lstd-ntts-en.aspx#30 Hizballah Also known as Hizbullah, Hizbollah, Hezbollah, Hezballah, Hizbullah, The Party of God, Islamic Jihad (Islamic Holy War), Islamic Jihad Organization, Islamic Resistance, Islamic Jihad for the Liberation of Palestine, Ansar al-Allah (Followers of God/Partisans of God/God's Helpers), Ansarollah (Followers of God/Partisans of God/God's Helpers), Ansar Allah (Followers of God/Partisans of God/God's Helpers), Al-Muqawamah al-Islamiyyah (Islamic Resistance), Organization of the Oppressed, Organization of the Oppressed on Earth, Revolutionary Justice Organization, Organization of Right Against Wrong and Followers of the Prophet Muhammed. Description One of the most technically capable terrorist groups in the world, Hizballah is a radical Shia group ideologically inspired by the Iranian revolution. Its goals are the liberation of Jerusalem, the destruction of Israel, and, ultimately, the establishment of a revolutionary Shia Islamic state in Lebanon, modelled after Iran. Formed in 1982 in response to Israel's invasion of Lebanon, Hizballah carried out some of the most infamous terror attacks of the Lebanese civil war, such as the suicide bombings of the barracks of United States Marines and French paratroopers in Beirut, as well as the hijacking of TWA Flight 847. While all other Lebanese militias disarmed at the end of Lebanon's civil war in 1990, Hizballah continued to fight, waging a guerilla war against Israeli troops stationed in southern Lebanon. Following Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon in 2000, Hizballah attacks against Israeli forces continued, concentrated on the disputed Shebaa Farms area. In 2006, Hizballah provoked Israel's invasion of Lebanon by kidnapping two Israeli soldiers and killing 8 others. On January 3, 2018, Hizballah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah announced that the group was working "to obtain all kinds of weapons that would enable it to achieve victory in the next war." Date listed 2002-12-10 Date reviewed 2018-11-21 EDIT: Also, any thoughts or feelings on Canada's statement?
