Assalam alaikum dear brothers and sisters and may the blessings and mercy of Allah be upon you all. I saw another user make an introduction, so I thought I would too. I came to Islam as the light at the end of the tunnel and attended the only mosque in my Welsh county, slotting by default into hanafi ideology. I moved to a England and to larger Muslim and mostly Indian/Pakistani community after marriage. Despite members of the Welsh community telling me that the community in this English city was better, it became quite clear, quite quickly that they weren't right. Increasingly isolated by both the community and the hanafi school, particularly hadiths, increasingly ashamed by terrorist attacks and sectarianism, after three years as a Muslim I felt at conflict with myself. I really struggled as I felt between two cultures, the culture of Islam and the culture as a British white man, and I didn't slot into either. I came to this religion because I saw inclusion of the Abrahamic narrative, inclusion of white people, people from Asia, Africa and elsewhere, I saw Islam as the final message of God, one of salvation, hope and solace. I did not see these things being practiced. I grew up respecting people of all faiths and views, and I hold that stance to this day. Muslims are Muslims, I see beyond the sects, if you love Allah and His messenger and you uphold the principal of peace, charity, kindness and so on, then who am I to hate you or be a takfiri on you!? I attended a salafi mosque on Ashura, because it was the only one that did English sermons, I saw a congregation humiliate a student (who I assume was Iranian by his accent) for asking why nobody mentions Hussain on such a day. I also saw brothers stand up and defend a man who had been arrested and later charged for trying to buy firearms for terrorism in a sting operation on a separate day. I myself had been targeted for not doing footsy during prayer with the person next to me. I continued to see this idiotic approach to people who follow the Ahlul Bayt, it trickles down from adults to kids, my nephew said that Shi'ites worship Ali, astaghfirullah. He said his friend at school told him. I corrected him. I used to have an Instagram account where I posted lessons and tidbits that might inspire people to be peaceful and good, I had even aspired to train to become an Imam and open a mosque, it would have been, to my knowledge, the first to feature a prayer room where women prayed behind men and not closed off in a tiny 2nd class room upstairs. It would be one of only a few where management would have not been of one school of thought, but many, where women would play an important role and where counselling services would take place for domestic violence and mental health... All sounds great, but because of my own mental health, I did not feel I could take on such a task. What did come out of Instagram was that I was responsible for reporting somewhere between 30-50 Daesh inspired or far right inspired profiles which as a result were removed, alhamdulillah. Anyway, for a long time I felt unhappy, with people, with the thought that people churn out such nonsense, whether it is about people or even things like hadiths. Andwe are expected to just take it all as gospel because an Imam said it, a sheikh said it, a pillar of the community said it. I started following the maliki maddhab, but now I don't adhere to any ideology as such. People might erroneously say I cherry pick, but picking the truth isn't always the easy option, so I hardly call that cherry picking. I seek truth and logic according the the Qur'an and if that comes from Ammar Nakshawani, so be it, if it comes from Abdal Hakim Murad, so be it. So why am I on Shiachat? Because first of all I want to meet like minded people in my area, and second of all, because I respect you and care for you as fellow Muslims. I just can't live a life spewing hate, teaching my children to hate and expect the world to be a better place for it. It does nothing here on Earth and it does nothing up there in Jannah either. Apologies for the novel, but at least I used paragraphs hey! Oh Lord send Your peace and blessings upon Muhammad and his family. May You always be pleased with us, keep us firm upon your truth and your religion. May we be standing together and may you always allow the light, wisdom and intellect to exist in this world so that we learn to love and put down our hatred, as although we are different people with different opinions and of differing backgrounds, we are all in need of Your light, all in need of Your mercy and all in need of Your pleasure with us. Forgive us all for what we say and do, what You know but we don't of the things we do to displease You. Oh Lord, send Your peace and blessings upon Muhammad and His family.
Tonight is a very special night for each and every shian haider e karraar. Tonight our 12th imam was born. So as a follower it is our duty to present something as a gift to Bibi Nargis Khatoon a.s. ( Mother of our 12th imam), Imam Hasan Askari a.s. (Father of our 12th Imam) and Imam Zamana a.t.f.s. The question is that what and how can we present our gifts to them? Gifts can be any good deed done for the happiness of Allah and Alhulbayt a.s. But today lets do something different. Lets just ask forgiveness to those whom we have hurted be words or deeds or thoughts. So lets just say this sentence to each and every person whom we know. "If I have caused you offence in any way knowingly or unknowingly, in thought, word or deed. Then I seek your forgiveness." May Allah and Alhulbayt a.s. accept this good deed and be pleased by our act. Jazakallah khair.
Imam Sajjad (the fourth Imam) in his valuable treatise named “The Treatise on Rights” said: “the right of him through whom God makes you happy is that if he intentionally made you happy, you should first praise God and then you should thank him accordingly, and reward him for initiating a nobility and be determined to return his favor.” On the one hand Islam encourages people to solve the problem of people and on the other hand directs to appreciation. Such condition is the best because the best society is one whose members treat each other with kindness and love.
Solving problems and making others happy has a very great value in Islam and there are so many traditions in this regard. Imam Sadiq (the sixth Imam) said: “Whoever makes a believer happy, God will create from that happiness a creature who will meet him at the time of his death and say to him: ‘Rejoice, O friend of God, at the favor and pleasure of God’. He will stay with him until he enters the grave and will repeat the same words to him. When he is resurrected, he will meet him and say the same to him again. Then he will continue to be with him at every (moment of) terror, giving him glad tidings and repeating the same words. The man will say to him: ‘Who are you? May God have mercy on you’? He will answer: ‘I am the happiness you had brought to so and so in your lifetime’.” (Usul al-Kafi, vol.2, pp.191-192)
(bismillah) (salam) When you come to ShiaChat and the smilies are not working, it is a problem. Minor problem, but still a problem. I decided to type this out so I could use these when the emoticons are not working. I thought I would share this. I had to put spaces inbetween the : : or the ( ) so you could see the letters between them. Otherwise the list would be like :) = :) which would not help and could not be copied. So, copy the list onto your computer and refer to it when you want to use emoticons in your messages. If you wish. I have to post several messages, because ShiaChat limits the number of emoticons you can use in each message. So wait for the other ones that I will post later. InshaAllah ( bismillah ) = (bismillah) Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem ( salam ) = (salam) Salaamun Alaykum, Greeting of Peace ( wasalam ) = (wasalam) Wa Alaikum Salaam meaning "And unto you peace" : ) = :) happy : ( = :( sad : O = :o surprise : excl : = :excl: complete surpirse, Exclamation Point ; ) = ;) wink, just kidding : P = :P a little more than happy : D = :D toothy smile : lol : = :lol: Laughing out loud, LOL
