How come the hoor al ayn, or houris, get to be born and live in eternal pleasure in Paradise? How come we have to go through life and all, and then we finally get Paradise as a reward for our actions, but the houris are all just sitting there from the beginning, waiting to have infinite sexual pleasure with their upcoming husbands? They literally feel no pain at all, ever, and if anything they only feel pleasure.
Is hate for non-Sunnis being taught in today's masjids? I don't see this "hate" going on in the masjid I attend. I'm in the south (Alabama) and the masjid I attend is Sunni but there are Muslims from all backgrounds there. This weekend the masjid had a "Day of Dignity" in the park & there were Sunnis and Shias serving the homeless together: spreading dawah, brought food and the medical doctors of the masjid came out and offered medical screening to the homeless. From my eyes this is the work that muslims should be doing. Meanwhile I was in GA listening to Shaykh Tahir ul-Qadri and Shaykh Ninowy. Shaykh Ninowy is Iraqi-Syrian and lives in Georgia. He is Sunni & in the past gave this lecture on the Ahlul Bayt: http://youtu.be/QacDiZHyrzs?t=35m14s It's long but if you start @ 35:14 you will hear him talking about how the Sunni vs. Shia rivalry is intellectual terrorism and that the differences between the two is no excuse for hate, and how other Sunni scholars tried to discourage him from talking about the Ahlul Bayt. When I first started learning about Islam I did not understand the animosity between Sufis and Shias and Sunnis. In my mind it's all Islam and we are all Muslims. I'm seeing that a lot of "information" on Islamic forums is leaning more toward extremist indoctrination/Jihad recruitment. And those who hold these extremist views tend to be cut from the same cloth: mostly males, reverts or next generation immigrants, walking, young (under 30), poor/low income (don't work, underemployed and angry), lives with parents, uneducated/undereducated, unmarried They ( who ever is the system orchestrator of extremist indoctrination) apparently knows who to target. Young males who don't have anything. No independence, no job, no money, no education, no car, no woman. They present them with the greatest gift given to man: Islam. Society has rejected them from higher education and these people present them with knowledge that is greater. I can see now how brain washing these young people can be easy and profitable for their cause.
