Thoughts (2010-2016) [ARCHIVE]

Wow, is this a woman only thing because if it isn't, sign me up! I want to learn Ninjutsu!

P.S. Hmmm, you are a ninja, doctor and artist. What's next, superpowers?

Sorry you can't join this group it's only for woman. But there's ninjatsu clubs for men too.

I wish I had superpowers, a life of a female doctor is not safe especially in the Middle East.

I joined the self defense group after a traumatic sad event. I was close to being kidnapped and raped.

It happened during the first months of my internship in Iran. The hospital round started at 6:00 am and I woke up too late decided to take a taxi from the street, it's common in Tehran, you find taxis in every corner.

Unfortunetly, I was hurrying and forgot to check the color (I've been told that yellow or green cars are true taxis other cars are false taxis).

And you can imagine the rest.... only with god's help I managed to escape by throwing myself out of the car.

The lesson I've learnt (it's not just a fact it's for real, MEN ARE physically stronger than women).

That false taxi driver had no muscles at all/ but still strong, he kept me fixed to the seat with one hand while driving with the other.

If he was strongly built I would have been dead by now.... Oh god such a scary thought.

OMG. Is this story for real?!

 

a life of a female doctor is not safe especially in the Middle East.

 

 

As they say: "It is from those words!!!"

 

I don't think that's true. At least, that's not an accurate statement:

 

"The report ranks countries in order depending on the responses to the survey. In three countries often praised for their gender equality, for example, high numbers of women report suffering violence since the age of 15: in Denmark 52%, Finland 47%, and Sweden 46% of women say they have suffered physical or sexual violence."

Authenticity? Brother Bhooka is of the belief that al-Kafi and al-Faqih are indeed fully authentic, which is the belief of some scholars that have came and went. This is his personal standard which he is certain of.

 

Is he really certain? Or does he say he is certain? 

 

I don't know much about him and therefore I can't comment on his views.

 

Authenticity and interpretation has to be questioned when there is strong external evidence in opposition to the evident meaning of some of these teachings. For example: A person goes to school or university and sees that there are some very intelligent females in his class. Much more intelligent than many of the males. How can that person ignore what he sees and just accept these traditions? Does he not even have an ounce of doubt? *

 

I think people should be much more brave in accepting the teachings of the Quran in these sorts of situations. E.g. there are some ahadith which say that you should never take the advice of a woman, even a good one. However the Quran says that prophet Shuayb [a] took the advice of his daughter.

 

* This is in reference to the teachings that women are deficient in intellect.

There are people like that everywhere, and this is why women should be accompanied by a male relative and/or her husband and the reason why women need to learn martial arts. I know it's not an popular opinion but I don't like it when such things happen and I do think more needs to be done about these situations. Now, I don't know if this is true, but it is been said that the average adult woman's strength is equivalent to that of a fourteen year old boy, again I don't know if it is true and I could be totally wrong on this but you are right, it's a general fact that the men are and will always the physically stronger of the gender, with some exceptions.

OMG. Is this story for real?!

Yeah, the West is actually a quite dangerous place for women in terms of sexual abuse and sex crimes, the US is pretty well known for these kinds of sick human beings,all the more reason to take up martial arts or carry if you are a woman during times when having a male relative with you is impractical. At least we have law enforcement agencies that take such crimes seriously, but the problem is it is highly underreported because the victims feel ashamed, guilty or they are coerced into remaining silent.

^Absolutely agree with you on that, the Qur'an trumps any hadiths that contradict it, especially hadiths that say that women are inferior to men in intelligence.

Excuse me for not being more clear earlier. He believes in the authenticity of those two books unless there is a hadith which conflicts the Holy Qur'an. The hadiths he uses are pretty general. He is an Akhbari.

 

Perhaps you will find this thread interesting: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/234988691-female-modsadmins-acceptable/page-1

Bhooka's knowledge and understanding of the subject seems questionable, as Jebreil said, Bhooka seems to be describing the role of women as if she was part of the Ottoman Sultan's harem as opposed to the wife of a hard working mu'min.

ohh bhooker, what a lost soul. Im sorry dabeast, but you will understand someday. You are young now my brother. Believe and follow any layman on the internet and soon when you leave your teen years you will hit a mental roadblock. Lets see how far such an ideology can go. I HIGHLY doubt this bhooker and who ever follows him applies their own ideas. Its just plain stupid honestly.

^ But not surprising.

 

Not at all, you see how the culture of objectifying/dehumanizing women has been passed over the generations among the mozlems.. and then they conveniently put up ayahs or examples from the Holy Prophet's (s.a.w) life on how women have been freed from this thinking.

I honestly saw it as a good discussion.

 

Jebreil said to Bhooka:

 

You have made an excellent case . I honestly say this. I take back my counter-refutation.

 

Please read the full thread and not bits and pieces.

I don't follow anyone on the Internet, nor do I take Bhooka as a guide. I have criticised him before on other threads (some poor translations). I just see him as a brother with an opinion. But you have called him a non-Muslim (implying he is a kafir), such a dangerous accusation. You have absolutely no proof that he left Islam.

Sure you dont. After all, you dont do taqleed to aqeed, except post other peoples (and past scholars beliefs) lel. Btw, I still hold that opinion, I have my reasons.

Lol, don't because that would mean that I am Kronk, and well he isn't too bright.

I don't follow classical or modern scholars in aqeeda.

Brother, following a scholar in aqeedah would be better than accepting the opinion of those like Bhooka, although I agree with you that he seemed to have an interesting opinion, sometimes opinions are potentially dangerous, be careful, Ibrahimi. You also be careful of putting words in a fellow Muslim's mouth when he did not call another a kafir. Edited by Gaius I. Caesar

Bro I don't think you're following along. My comment was a reply to Ethic's comment, me and Ethics have had differing opinions since I joined this site, and one of our differences is the role of scholars in aqeeda issues. This has nothing to do with Bhooka, I don't follow Bhooka, and who said I accept his opinions? I never said that.

 

I said I respect him as a brother with an opinion. I have criticised Bhooka before, in fact, I have seen that some of his translations of the hadiths are poor, and perhaps it's an anti-woman attitude, I don't know.

From what? I haven't been on his blog for months until his name was brought back. I don't agree with a lot of the stuff he says (I don't believe in the outright authenticity of al-Kafi, for example), I don't know why I'm being demonised lol

The confusion is because of this comment, Ibrahimi, makes you sounds like you agree with his views.

"..I was speaking about this forums' mods/admins. I don't mean to offend anyone, including you, but as per ahadith women shouldn't be given power and obeyed, whoever doesn't agree is mal'oon."

http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/234988691-female-modsadmins-acceptable/page-1

I have read the brother's thread, however I'm not entirely convinced with his conclusions and find it problematic to some extent. How does he reconcile his understanding of these Ahadith with the famously known political influence that Sayeda Zaynab al-Kubra(as) had and the stances she took after Karbala? That is, her famous Khutba in Kufa(and by the way, most, if not all in those in the audience were men) - where she harshly condemned the Kufans that abandoned Imam Hussain(as) and broke their pledge of allegiance to him which led to the cause of his martyrdom. Or her call for a revolution to happen against starting from the people of Medina? Both of these stances clearly have a form of authority and power in them especially when the Sayeda(as) was making these causes for the sake of defending Islam from it's enemies and acting as a representative of her brother to ensure his legacy remains alive until the final hour. Not only that, but I'm certain that they are more significant than the authority that a female Mu'minah has on an English online forum.

I'm pretty certain that if the brother's understanding of these Ahadith is affirmed by the Ma'sum, then Sayeda Zaynab(as) and Imam Zain al-Abdineen(as) would be the first to apply it. But it seems to me that based on what we learn from the Seerah of Sayeda Zainab(as), she clearly had a different exegesis, otherwise, she would not give a Khutbah condemning the men who betrayed her martyred brother and calling them back to Allah or call the Shi'a of her time and those from the ignorant Muslims who were Muqasireen on the rights of the Ahlulbayt(as) to start a revolution against the Ummayad tyrants.

This is just my personal observation on the entire discussion. Anyone else is free to comment on it.

Dear brothers and sisters:

 

The Norwegian winter is about to begin. I encourage all of you to donate blankets, gloves, and warm clothes for the poor, suffering people of that country (who surely have no means of leaving, otherwise they would).
