  1. salaam Ive been muslim for years, but as i said ive been lost and confused for most of the time, i was never accepted by wahabbi,salafi,sufi, some sunni and sadly some shias!! i got ran around and end up becoming lost(i still am), i was trying to be shia, but i got overlooked, i was told by shia and even non muslims, that im not shia or muslim,and that i said ya hussain abd im going to hell and im not accepted by the muslim community, and that i was insane and mentally ill and my shahadah didnt count, and i was given a salafi oath insted of the true shahadah. So with all this being said,
  2. Have you ever been fascinated by something? I mean truly fascinated-- wherein you find yourself pondering, daydreaming, and even neglecting your hobbies to research the topic in question? I attended three separate high schools from 1421-1425 (2000-2004 CE), so one might think that Islam would have been very topical during this period. I'll be the first to admit that my high school didn't cover Islam at all. We had no units on Islam or Muslims in World History nor did we speak of Islam in any sort of current events units in social studies (my schools didn't even offer World Religions as an e
  3. Why do I chase Islam? This isn't a rhetorical question, I really would like to understand the pathology of my continual fascination with a religion, worldview, and life path that I have no familial, ethnic, or historical connection to. I simply do not understand what it is about Islam that intrigues me so, and furthermore, I do not understand exactly why I cannot leave it alone. So the point of making this blog was essentially to let out my feelings in a way where others don't feel like the "owe" me a response. Let me dive a little bit into my own history. I am a third generation U
  4. Hey to all. I’m looking a mosque in Spain. It’s really difficult because all the mosques around here are Sunni. I think I wasn’t to convert but first I would like to ask some questions to an expert or something. I’ve located a alulbeyt foundation but they don’t seem to reply. hope you can all help me thanks
  5. Hi there. I have a question regarding conversion to Shia Islam in Dublin. I recently moved here from one ex Yugoslav country. I am not a Muslim, but I spent a lot of time in my life reading about Islam (I've read Quran in my language and atm I'm reading it in English) and when I discovered Shia Islam I kind of felt for the first time in my life like this is something that is close to my personal religious beliefs. I grew up in Catholic country and I was forcefully baptized when I was young because my mother feared of our society (with the war and all that going on and my family bei
  6. I am a muslim . I belong to a sufi sect who do believe in wilayat e Ali ((عليه السلام)). But unfortunately i was brought up among people who were wahabi and i grew up with a wahabi mind set and believed shia are extremists. Now i've realized that whatever i believed was not rational. I want to study about shia islam and need guidance about books and authentic scholars.Now I am too much confused about what exactly is the truth.. Secondly, is it necessary to belong to a specific sect ? If yes then why?? I am already a muslim.
  7. This is my story on how I became a Shia Muslim. I became a Shia Muslim recently with help from friends and from ShiaChat. To begin with, I grew up in a heavily Anti-Shia society, where loads of allegations were stirred up against Shias. Some of these allegations were like Shias mixing blood with food and spitting in water etc. At first I began to believe this until I was in 7th grade, where I met a Shia person for the first ever time in my life. I had a long conversation with him about Shia Islam and he cleared many doubts, which Inclined me to be more kind to Shias. However, Some of my Sunni
  8. Salam Alaykum. I am a Sunni Muslim who has been interested in Shia Islam for ages. I have adapted the Shia way of Praying, and I follow many other Shia Beliefs as well. Upto this stage, I was wondering if there was anything I should to do to make me a Shia Muslim? Kind Regards. Qasim.
  9. Hello / salam alaikum. I know that Islam is somewhat strict on marriages where husband is not a muslim (since children of such couple could potentially be raised as non-muslims and other issues).But is there any ruling on those who used to follow another religion but than converted to Islam? I am not talking about converting just for the sake of marrying a muslim but those who genuinely believe. Are they anyhow special in this case (e.g. that muslim women should still avoid them)? Another question is if such marriage between a born-muslim girl and a guy who converted during his adulthoo
  10. I'm having a bit of a problem. I was in a relationship with an Arabic shia Muslim for a year. I'm a white american woman who was never made to follow any religion but I am highly spiritual and open minded to many courses of faith. The two of us were/are in love and both talked actively about our future together. I didn't realize his parents wouldn't be accepting at all, but I think he hoped they would be regardless of previous struggles in the family regarding this issue. Within the last couple weeks, he finally told them about me and they reacted badly--said some things he wouldn't repeat to
  11. Salam to all my brothers and sisters in faith I have a question about a complicated situation I have and want to know the Islamic laws regarding this. I have been married for 4 years and have a child and another under way. My wife is 5th month pregnant and recently changed her religion from Islam to Bahaism. We have had many arguments but I try to not be so harsh to her since she is pregnant. What is the right decision. Should I divorce her and take my children away (I live in United States), or should I wait until she give birth, so I can talk to her more and have a chance to bring her ba
  12. Salam A catholic woman, separated from her husband for a couple years but not legally divorced in country of her origin (living abroad now), is converting to Islam. From sharia point of view, does she need a legal divorce from her catholic husband before marrying a muslim? If no, does she need to spend time in Iddah though she has been separated from husband for years. What is the required duration? If yes, are there any exceptions in case of hardship such as if it will be financially difficult for her to pursue divorce through country's legal channels or the husband not agreeing making
  13. Legacy of Islam in early centuries in Iranian culture and society In her book "The New Muslims of Post-Conquest Iran: Tradition, Memory, and Conversion" Sarah Bowen Savant talks about Iran's conversion to Islam in the ninth to eleventh centuries, focusing on the historical consciousness of Iranians at the time. It emphasizes the importance of a shared history for groups and traces the remolding of Iranian history and identity in the light of Islam. Through these interactions, Iranians developed a sense of Islam as an authentically Iranian religion, as they simultaneously shaped the broader h
  14. This is a sensitive question. After a non-Muslim converts to Islam and his/her relatives end up not converting before their deaths, what follows according to Islamic teachings? Will his/her parents go to Hell for not being Muslim, while he/she goes to Paradise (if he/she would turn out to be a good Muslim, of course)? Or, will his/her relatives be saved from Hell thanks to him/her choosing for Islam (I remember someone telling me something like this)? It's such a horrible thought that the parents of a converted Muslim cannot join their child in the afterlife.
  15. Changing faiths: Hispanic Americans leaving Catholicism for Islam21 August 2013 With more than 50 million Hispanics living in the US, the Latino community is now the country's biggest minority. While most are brought up within the Catholic Church, a number of them are turning to Islam. Precise figures are difficult to pin down as the US Census does not collect religious data, but estimates for the number of Latino Muslims vary between 100,000 and 200,000. The BBC's Katy Watson went to Union City in New Jersey - where the population is more than 80% Hispanic - to meet some converts. V
  16. I wanted to send this to the list earlier. Here are a friend's observations and "Conversion Manual" when I argue with our Sunni brothers. There might be other manuals out there but this one has worked for me so far :). *** Important Note*** All Arguments should preferably be in email/written form. Do not waste your breath on it. Force them to READ not listen. Genuine ones will read and convert. Non genuine ones will quit bothering you. Guaranteed. PRECONDITIONS 1. Have a sympathetic attitude towards Sunnis. Feel sorry for them that apparently confessing Islam, they are still so far away from t
