Thoughts (2010-2016) [ARCHIVE]

WARNING: This is a "sad" thought:

R. Duterte was elected to the Philippine Presidency on 09May16 with 39% of the vote. Almost 16 million 602 thousand people voted for him. Duterte was more than 6 million votes ahead of his closest rival in an election with 81% turnout. His election promise was "l will kill people" -specifying drug dealers and incorrigible addicts. Last week the news said there are 3,600 known extrajudicial killings.

Friday, 07Oct16, DeutscheWelle reported that over 700,000 people have turned themselves to the police for either prison or drug rehabilitation "out of fear for their lives". The film showed these long lines of people surrendering to police while the police sat at desks filling out forms for the surrendees' signatures.

Inshallah, something like this will not happen here (USA).

I read somewhere that one of the sign of the end times is murder will become common and it won't be considered a big sin. I am scared of that. I can deal with every other kind of immorality being common but to think that, a human being can kill another human being and not worry about his actions, it's just horrible. I have seen videos of police shooting and it's sad that some people are trying to justify their actions. If Hillary Clinton becomes president, does that mean that sexist police officers will start killing women randomly?

If it happens in the USA, then it won't be because of drugs, which are probably on their way to be legalized in the West. Obviously the people of the Philippines must feel that they have serious drug problems, or else I doubt they would elect this guy.

Thanks for posting this. This is a very scary reality. Unless we completely dissociate from our worldly inclinations of money and power, we will do the same to the Imam of our time.

More than 900 confirmed dead by hurricane "Matthew". Please if you can, remember the affected people in your duas, especially those who have lost their homes and loved ones. If he isn't your brother in religion, he is your brother in humanity. 

May Allah nourish the hungry and house the homeless and may he grant patience to the oppressed by the right of Imam Hussain (as).

It is so saddening that we see people in such nations as a number. Thousands of deaths mean nothing to us if the victim is from a distant land.

They're already fully de-criminalised in Portugal I think. It is already seen as a sign of individual freedom.

I forgot to put in that post that Duterte has a 70% "approval rating" according to DW.

According to Hillar's emails released Friday, 07Oct16, she is FOR "open borders" and a Western Hemisphere "free market".

Since I'm currently living in an area of few Shi'a, and haven't been to any majalis since the start of Muharram, I'm going to take this opportunity to go to Copenhagen for Ashura and check out the Imam Ali mosque, the largest Shi'a mosque in Denmark.

If anyone has any info/tips for a North American going to Denmark for the first time, please let me know!

Absolutely incredible. Thanks for sharing. Why couldn't I understand it though I'm annoyed :/ I usually understand Farsi 100% when my mum speaks it with her family. Are there different dialects? Or maybe the older generation (I.e) my mum speak it in a different way?

Egyptian women number one in beating husbands, shows UN study

While the East is not known for ‘abusive’ women, surprising statistics revealed by the UN indicate that Egyptian women are ‘world number one’ in abusing and beating their husbands.

Egypt is followed by the United Kingdom and India in the ranking. The data, obtained from the Egyptian Family Court, shows that 66% of wives who abuse and beat their husbands apply for divorce in the Family Court.

http://tribune.com.pk/story/1158555/egyptian-women-number-one-beating-husbands-shows-un-study/

 

The data further reveals that wives don’t only use their hands in beating their husbands, but also tools such as pins, belts, weapons, kitchen tools and shoes. Some even using sleeping pills in order to beat and burn their husbands.

I don't want no paradise

Heaven, it lies in your shrine

Heaven is to be with you

Doused in the love of your sight

If there is one thing that I desire it ought to be the chance to recite eulogies for my beloved Imam.

The keys to paradise are found in the sincere heartshaking eulogies, causing rivers to flow from all your lovers who listen.

I am doused in your love, mawla.

*squeaks*

It's the night of Ashura. It is such a sad sad sad time.

The matam gets this intense and the azadari is so tough on this night that nothing ever comes close to this.

Allah knows what's happened to imam zaman a.t.f heart.

This is not necessarily true. It may be for people who are inclined toward seeking truth, but on the whole: conversion (in the sense of radically changing one's worldview) is not an academic endeavor. Look at all these orientalists who know more about Islam than most lay Muslims and even most ulama, and yet they do not convert. Likewise, we see many who are very well-versed in history and hadith and yet retain incorrect views about imamah, the first three and so on.

 

Knowledge in itself cannot create such a great inner transformation. Iblees is more knowledgable than any of us.

Well, some of the things you are saying are right but I don't agree with everything.    Concealing facts does mislead a lot of people. The example of iblis cannot be applied here because he wasn't mislead. He got an order straight from Allah which he refused to obey. 

I have written elsewhere on the forum about a tactic the wahabbis have started for the past few years. Every year in Muharram there is a slew of posts on social media highlighting the  important 'historical' events that happened on 10th of muharram.

They will say :Allah freed the people of Bani israel from Moses on 10th muharram. 

They will say : Hazrat Younas as came of the whale on 10th muharram.

They will say Prophet Noah's (as) ark reached land safely on 10th of muharram.

They will say: Prophet cured Hazrat Ayub as on 10th of Muharram.

BUT there is no mention of the massacre of Karbala !!! And when I say what about Imam e Hussain as? someone had the audacity to say we(wahabbis) are not sure if it happened that day !! A sunni friend of mine who lives in the west told me lots of children growing up there don't even know about the incident of Karbala. What is the next step..ten years down the line the wahabbis will start saying they are not sure it even happened. 

Why do you think the saud funded propaganda factories are working so hard to conceal these historical facts? To create doubts in the minds of people with weak faith.

How are the shias going to refute these statements if the facts are not clear and widely known. What are we going to say to the wahabbis? the non muslims? to our own children who might question these statements one day? They will say ghadeer never happened, they will say it were the shias of Kufa who killed Imam Hussain as. If we don't know history we won't know what's meant by the 'shias' of kufa. 

You are right in saying that hidayat doesn't come from merely knowing the facts but at least the facts should be widely available for those who want wish to know the truth.

يخويه تنادي ولا لك امعين                   وقومك على الغيره مطاعين

أنا منين اجيب المرتضى منين                        عن كربلا بويه غبت وين

تدري بأميّه تطلب بدين                                يطلبون ثار ابدّر وحنين

 هجموا فرد هجمة على حسين

Anyone know that feeling when you leave home really early, by midday it already feels like you are having a long day, you crack and eat something that you shouldn't and then when you go to the toilet you find that someone has urinated on the seat.

Where does the line end with unity? Every year during this month and on Ashura, Shia's and Sunnis here are all lovey dovey towards each other which is nice. I appreciate the peace we live in and am thankful for it but does that mean we go around saying to them "May God accept your good deeds (fast) on this day". Yes it is true they respect us too by giving their condolences to us but how can we go around acknowledging the fact that they celebrate this day? And wishing them good for it? All for the sake and under the banner of unity. We can simply stay quiet, I'm not saying attack them for celebrating, but there is no need at all to show that we are okay with their ignorance.

Hmm, how can they acknowledge the events of Karbala and give their condolences but then still celebrate whatever? What happened to their brain?
