This kind of thread has probably been done 100 times but it's important to know how to organize so if you have any ideas please do state. As Shia Muslims we must organize under: - Politics - Intelligence (Long stretch but have a intelligence that helps and looks out for our community) - Education (make sure we as a community are well educated especially in the west we're lucky enough) - Entertainment (in terms of having an influence also there as well) - Media - A certain form of secrecy Also Lobbying by having our own lobbies in government striving to help our community have a voice. I might gets some backlash for mentioning Entertainment but we also need show ourselves in such a way where it distances us from the terrorists. If anyone else has idea's then please do state them. Peace be with you all, Syeduddin
(BISMILLAH) (Salam) I hope you are all in the best of health and Iman. When we look at the events surrounding Siffin and the events resulting from it, such as the creation of the Kharjites and the subsequent battle of Naharwan, we that a lot of the people who left the Imam's side were not necessarily evil but were simply fooled by Ibn Aas. For example, when I was younger and had for the first time come across the Imam's history in the series made about him, when his camp started panicking because Ibn Aas has spread rumours that he would divert the flow of the Euphrates, I actually believed it! I was neither in the war nor was I opposed to the Imam (I was barely old enough to understand this stuff) but, if I was, at that time, one of his camp, I would have probably run away like those guys. The same was true for a lot of the people who accepted arbitration: they simply weren't clever enough to see through Ibn Aas' rouse. Many of the Kharjites, too, were not bad people. They were not out for personal gain or to profit and in fact had a very ascetic lifestyle but because they were not clever enough and hypocritical, they became the worst of the Imam's enemies, despite probably having good intentions and only wanting to please God. Now, if we believe that non-Muslims who have good intentions and tried their best to find the right religion but were, for whatever reason, unable to come to accept Islam as the right religion will also be accepted into Heaven, what about people like the Kharjites? Given that I can't exactly control how intelligent I am and if I will be able to see through another person's deceit, is it possible that they will also be forgiven?
I have just finished two "documentary" videos on separate topics. I want us to use this thread to talk about our thoughts and views on the road we are headed as "man". How our intellect, ability, and faith play a role in this...Viewer Discretion is advised... One is on man-made food source in which we can possibly live on. It is foretold that man will surpass its resources due to higher and higher population rates. One software engineer experiments and makes this powder to liquid base content in which keeps you full, so that you do not need to waste lots of money and the need for food is pretty much gone. He says that why should man depend on agriculture and such. It is a thing of the past and soon to be unavailable. It has not been tested by the FDA except that it has been called as a dietary supplement. So a man takes it as an experiment and uses it for 30 days. Is such a thing possible to help sustain mankind's existence in the future? I tend to believe Allah will always provide sources (i.e. natural foods) for mankind regardless how the future may be headed. But then again, verses in which Allah says "I will not change the situation of mankind, until they change themselves" comes to mind. In this video, they bring a man which has done a study to show how food shortages and high prices correlate with revolts and social disruption such as the arab spring. This makes me wonder too.... The next video was a man who takes a biochip and implants it into his arm. He takes about how he wants man to live and if we have to intellect we can make it possible. He believes biochip implants, turning man into half robot as the solution. One thing in the video that makes me wonder was how it mentions that the health organizations do not let these people do these implants because the society of the time does not consider it "normal". The man then uses the notion of breast enlargements as a joke towards the norm of society. I think to myself, what if society enabled testing of such sorts on humans, how far would we go? What might the norm be then? That is how far we might already be going if everything was truly open to us. Yes Allah has given us intellect, but of course there is no way man could become immortal. This is what a believer’s logic is put at. These videos some what put me off edge. It makes me uncomfortable. Its kind of like going against Allah, fighting his system. The video about the creation of a new source of food doesnt play a huge role in trying to go against Allah. But more of how might we survive and such. Also how the oppressed plays a role in mankind. Just my thoughts.... (wasalam)
