Appreciation PostAssalamu Walaikum everyone, I hope you are all good Insha’Allah. Since there’s a lot of chaotic things going in the world right now I thought we could use a light topic. Name something your grateful for/ appreciate. This can be from today or in general. Ma Salam
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.
So What Is Stopping You From Getting Married?
Fresh-imaan posted a topic in Social/Family/PersonalAslamualaykum wa rahmatullah brothers and sisters. So I have been reading many posts. It seems that there are many people who wish to marry but cannot. I really wish to explore what may be stopping marriage, discuss, perhaps suggest some duas/amaal that scholars have done. I then want to see what people's criterias are and why it is so hard to find potentials. I wanted to see if perhaps by discussing them, we can find solutions inshaAllah. Sometimes through exploration, seeing the situation from a neutral perspective from all sides, something can come up. Alternatively, perhaps it can be explored through PM if you wish to share, but not publicly. I hope it is an interesting discussion and hopefully others will be able to learn from each other. It's up to you if you wish to share this. I hope I can be of some help inshaAllah. Ma'salaama Fresh-imaan.
Bomb Targeting Sunnis
-Enlightened posted a topic in Politics/Current EventsIraq violence: Dozens killed in blasts targeting Sunnis http://www.bbc.co.uk...e-east-22571895
Sistani says qurbani is not mandatory for non-haj shia. Only mandatory for haj pilgrims. Qurbani is a mustahab thing yet sunnis celebrate qurbani way more than shias do. Sunnis even sent qurbani donation to poorer muslim countries. Why is the situation like so? Prophet Muhammad (pbuh&hf) do qurbani every year; his last I think was 63 camels to hint towards his departure ....
