  1. Assalamu aleikoum Brothers & Sisters, i think that many people would be probably shocked of this info. This Church (mother of the other Christian Churches, except Nestorian and partly Tewahedo) is in fact pagan bloodthirsty worship of the sun - go google photos ,,Christianity Sun worship". The Latin Church after Constantine's accepting of Christianity many pagan traditions became part of that faith and the Roman Empire started never-ending war against the ,,pagans" and heretics, for example war against Christian Arianism faith or later crusades against the Muslims, Orthodox (Eastern) Christians, Christian Albigensians and later against the northern and eastern European Pagans. And also how this bloodthirsty ,,Church" behaved towards my people - the Romani people (known as Gypsies, the G-word is somewhat racist), when we were called by the Catholic ,,Church" Pagans or filthy unbelievers even in Europe we were Christian as the local population but we took religion little bit differently than the local White-European population and it was what ,,Church" saw as herezy - it was a part of Witch-hunt and Inquisition. Another example of this sick bloodthirsty ,,religion" is a way how al-Andalus (Spain and Portugal) was re-Christianised and what happened after it, yes i am speaking about the Inquisition and also about Spanish and Portuguese colonisation of Americas and Inquisition there. Also there were pogroms on the Jews done or at least supported by this ,,Church" and the Jews often found freedom of religion in Muslim lands, same way as after fall of al-Andalus. And i should also mention the European Wars of Religion between the Catholic Church and it´s daughters Reformed Churches, which was very bloody and inquisition was working in enormous scale. After the 30 years war between the Catholics and Lutherans in the lands which were regained by the Catholics happened bloody re-Catholisation which in the Czech Lands took life of at least 60% of population and in Hungary around 40%, re-Catholisation was orchestrated by the Church and by the Austrian state. Christianity got under control because of French Revolution which was not only anti-Monarchist but also anti-Catholic and in general anti-Religious, this formed modern-day Europe, if this revolution was not successful Europe and Americas would be probably till now in Dark Ages and full of bloodshed of the innocents. But wait this is not an end of the story! I have to mention that the Catholic Church also supported Nazi Germany and Independent State of Croatia (Nazi pro-German state) which both were doing genocide of the Jews, Romani people, Serbs, Poles and other people who were seen as inferior races. I mentioned before that the Catholic (Latin) Church is a mother of other churches, i must to mention that also other churches supported witch-hunts, anti-Jewish pogroms and called the Romani people pagans which led to genocides of the Romani people. And this is not still the end of a story because last shadows of reality of this Church and it´s daughter Churches we see in Africa where the Christianity is often still so bloodthirsty as it was in Europe before and in fact we have seen it in Europe (or Asia?) recently when the Armenian Catholics started (again) doing genocide of the Muslims in nowadays Eastern Turkey (between 1830 to 1916) and of the Azerbaijanis (since 1830´s with some pauses in all the lands of Azerbaijan and last time between 1988 to 1994 in Azerbaijani land of Karabakh) and also we have seen how Orthodox Christians many times did genocides of the Muslims in Bosnia (many times since 1790´s, last time between 1992 to 1995), Kosovo (last time in 90´s), western part of Turkey (1919-1922), Algeria (Africa- done by the Catholics - 1830 to 1962) Cyprus (1960´s to 1974) and Lebanon (Asia - done by the various Christians - 1975 to 1995).
  2. Introduction - I am Australian, a white Anglo-Saxon Christian. I have been researching Islam for about a year and a half and am very seriously considering converting to Shia Islam. I have come along away at first i was a bigot and growing up here in a climate of anti Islam Hysteria and the rise of Terrorism i cursed everything about Islam it's origins and its prophet things that i have now come to regret saying. In Australia we've been exposed from a young age right-wing channels trying to paint the world as 'Us V. Them' which obviously shaped my political views before i started researching myself into what the people who adhere to Islam believe. (Search 'A Current Affair Islam' and see what Australians are exposed to) At first trying to do complete an independent research i was bombarded with hateful messages from Anti-Islam websites or Wahhabi/Salafi websites but looking into this realized there are different sects and schools of thought within Islam. I found myself now researching into the divide of Sunni and Shia and the life of the Prophet in general. So what did i find and what was my conclusion after a year and half of research. I believe the companions who became the Caliphs after the Prophet did not follow the values and ethics taught by the prophet and the Quran. There are stories of violence and evils committed by both Umar and Abu Bakr which i have found appalling but Ali (First Imam/Fourth Caliph) I believe very much did follow the true Islamic values, his tolerance to religious minorities, kindness and high morals were in my opinion like those of the prophet and values taught by Islam and is the true successor to the prophet. I have respect for the Sunni muslims but today they have seem to have become corrupted with funds being shared around the world by the Saudi's, threatening the peace and at the same time supported by the U.S. and unfortunately my own country Australia. There is a real double standard in the western world, we are so hell bent on trying to take out Iran claiming they are a threat to world peace but it is truly the Saudi's who are killing and supporting horrific Salafi/Wahhabi militant groups. Question Time - 1) If i converted to Islam (Twelver) what would change when it comes to interactions with my christian families?, What becomes of Christmas, Funerals and other religious gathering adhering to Roman Catholicism. What can i or can't participate in? 2) My Family who i know for fact would be very accepting of me changing religions, they would accept me no matter what. My question is would God (I know only he can judge) based on Islamic beliefs accept my family into paradise if they're Catholics. It was my parents who knew i was disillusioned with my faith told me to go out and discover a new spiritual outlook on life. (I personally never thought it would be Islam ) and so i did and now we are here. 3) What evidence is there that Muhammad was a prophet, how can i be sure? These three questions that i know may seem 'amateur' to some Islamic experts but are vital questions to me in whether or not i will accept Islam. I hope you all are having a blessed day and i am excited to hear all your responses.
  3. Salam Alaykum, I am a convert to Islam. My conversion story is here, http://www.justanotherabdullah.com/.../yusufs-road-to-islam-a-revert-story/. In any case I was wondering if there is proof that Shia Islam is true and that Sunnis are misguided. Also are sunnis kafirs and go straight to hellfire? Salam. You can contact me on email through waterpoloprince12@gmail.com if you like.

  5. Hello Hello Hello! Salamalaikum sisters, brothers, and ones who are just here to educate themselves on the views of others beliefs/faiths. I was born into a Catholic household. You see how I mentioned CATHOLIC.. this is very different from Christian. Yes Catholics are a sections of the christian faith but are following completely different lifestyles and moral codes/faith codes. As my guide in Islamic school once said, Catholics are the Shias of Christianity. Love for the truth, the details, the devotion, respect and for the understandings of holy book. Not short interpretations, not politics! Anyways, yes Catholics are almost there to the truth but got lazy and didn't follow along with fact & history. While growing up, my mother had it her mission to teach me about God. not only in her form or belief but to teach me about all religion and beliefs of God. It was her way of showing me the world and all the people who are living on earth with me. You cant understand someone or their culture without knowing about what they believe, who does their heart beat for? Even as a child Mom always told me I will be forced everyday to look inside my heart and find God there. The journey was quite hard and the history also tough to keep track of.. i even had a timeline i painted on the wall of my bedroom reaching from one side across the entire room to the other side. On the timeline I added every event that was monumental to religion. Religion itself, not one only. Anyways, as a catholic family we did all the catholic things like bible study, prayer study, church, only fish on Fridays, practicing Lent which is similar to Ramadan kind-of in certain ways, Communion, Confession.... and then the day came for my Confirmation ceremony! For years prior to this day I had lessons with our priest "Father Joe" and we discussed if I was ready to confirm to Catholicism or if God had lead me to another path.. It was important to Father Joe that I read the Qur'an and understand the beauty & holiness of each word. (The catholic church views the Qur'an as a book for God idk if everyone knows that) After years of searching and waiting for my Confirmation day finally it came time to deny my commit to the church. I remember my first lesson with Father Joe when I was only 6 years old. I was sitting in the hallway outside his classroom door on a red plastic chair just waiting for my chance to say hello. I was nervous, excited, but most of all I remember sitting there feeling I had 100 questions to ask him and feeling he might get angry because my heart doesn't agree completely with the stories and scriptures Ive learned. He called me and when i sat down I saw a copy of the Qur'an on his desk. I couldnt stop looking at it, I remember the feeling of wanting to grab it & read it without stopping. He only asked me one question and it was "Who is your favorite person from the bible?" He said how he knows its hard to pick but that I must have a favorite from learning about it in religion class. I remember feeling scared to tell him I liked the Prophet Muhammad more because he is the luckiest one to have known God after Jesus. It felt like I sat there hours waiting for him to reply, to say anything.... that fast and it was over. Since that day I always asked Father Joe to explain why he believes Jesus was God himself AND he is the son. He can't be both. Still to this day I stop into my old church to visit with him and discuss beliefs. There has been a few times I have even volunteered with the senior care center there. To move along, after the day I refused to Confirm I threw myself into studying Religion and ways to God. One night I was going through a box of old journals and old essays I wrote as a child & I came across one that was about how amazing it would be to be apart of ahlubayt. how understanding Islam was more then just a conversation but it had to be closer. It was an 8th grade essay and I wrote for 25 pages about how God gave us this man, and this mans family for a reason. It was his family who had the ability to understand Islam and to not destroy it. If that wasnt true then why would God choose him? It made me look into what my heart tells me and what my morals are. I choose Islam. I choose to become Shia. I studied for 6 years before selecting where my true faith is. I would LOVE to hear how others reverted back to Islam. I would love to hear from those who are struggling with the idea that they must choose between one religion or another. I understand the confusion about feeling there isnt one PERFECT religion but I would love to hear other peoples stories about how they found a balance, how they found a comfortable place for their faith. <3
