Sallamun Alaykum

i see a lot of discussions between shia and sunnis which have to do with Shia-Sunni issues, i would like to know how you research what you say rather than what you heared or read on an shia-sunni websites.

i will show my process and maybe you can let me know yours.

1. find the subject on a shia site like alkafi.net or others

2. see how sunnis or wahabis respond

3. check if there are any shia rebutals and any wahabi rebutals

4. keep the information and search through my digital library to make sure what they are saying is somewhat true or not out of context

5. write down what i know then search and see is there anything else i can add to the argument

6. think about it make a folwchart maybe

7. find the physical books to make sure what i read was correct.

8. claim the argument

thats my process it may seem to take long but it really doesnt only a week or so and its safer (in terms of Allah (AW) questioning you) then just copying what others say straight away. allhamdullilah im lucky concerning number 7 becuase i can usually find the books i need.

i want to know what your process is.

In writing a recent paper, I have had quite a hard time finding unbiased and neutral accounts of Islamic history. Many otherwise neutral sources, including Ency. Britannica, seem to be heavily influenced by Sunni thoughts on the matter. So I too have had a time- eventually I just employed an adversarial method taking the undisputed facts and then attempting to weight both sides of the disputed facts.
