If you give us this warning, then why showing this un-islamic things?

 

Un-Islamic? Don't watch it then. But she is dressed modestly (especially considering it's Lebanon), and Hezbollah puts on a lot of songs about patriotism, religion and poetry on their channel. Also, don't act like you are the purest person in the world.

Amazing... Alhumdolillah, kudos her and to Sayed Hassan Nasrallah and the Lebanese Hezballah organization for being so open, inclusive and welcoming and attracting this sort of appreciation from all quarters. This kind of wide support reminds me of the kind of support Imam Ali had during his time from minorities because of how tolerant and open his Islamic government was, towards everyone, non-Shias and non-Muslims in general (the Christians of that time used to praise such Islamic values as freedom they had under the Imam as well). 

 

Respect to her, to Nasrallah, to Hezballah, and to Lebanese people in general for being united. 


Oh and by the way Ali-F, not all music is prohibited in Islam. The extreme heavy ones are for sure not ok, but other than those there are varying interpretations and differences of opinion among the experts as to what the limits are. It's not easy to judge a mild music video like this one where there's hardly any immodesty (relative to most music videos) and call it haram.

This song is so old, it came out in 2006, the words of her song are the words of Sayed Hassan Nasrallah during the 2006 war when he sent a letter to the fighters of Hezbollah, and she did the whole concert to Hezbollah. Julia Botros is an SSNP (Syrian Socialist Nationalist Party) who resisted israel in their past, and most of her songs are revolutionary.

I wonder how tolerant Hizbollah is when it comes to how women dress. Julia Boutros is not a Muslim. So this might explain why she is tolerated. Some muslim countries accept double standards depending on religion. But e.g Haifa Wehbe is muslim. How come she is tolerated? Has Hizbollah begun to realise that compulsary hijab is a stupid and backward rule? If so, shouldn't Hizbollah be more critical against the oppressive laws of Iran?

1. Lebanon isn't an Islamic country, and not under any Islamic ruling + Lebanon isn't ruled by Hezbollah either.

 

2. Hezbollah can't force people to be religious, they are a political group and a resistance. In the Shia community you have people that aren't religious. Haifa Wehbe comes from a Shia community, and her brother is a martyr btw, but she is not religious. In Lebanon there is a lot of diversity between all communities and also in the Shia community since from before most  Shia were left wing, secular, communist.

Hezbollahs job in Lebanon isn't to impose hijab on women, they can make awarenesses, lectures, etc.. about Islam. Not more...

Are you one of those Anti-Welayat Fakih?

I am not sure I know what Welayat Fakih means. But I suspect it has something to do with politics and religion. Right? Any sensible person understands that it is not fair if the political system favours a certain religion. So of course it has to be secular. It is up to the individual to decide whether he/she wishes to adhere to any religion.

How many minutes do you sit thinking about the answer that you believe is such a good answer for a comeback?

Do you feel good about yourself before you go to bed? Because I pity your low life. 

You come here trying to act smart, but you only think your smart. Reality, you got no life. 

Ok get out..whose next?

I understand that you did not like my answer. But are you able to explain why?

And how come you are so concerned about my feelings before going to bed? What do you know about my life? Can't you see it is irrelevant?

I second this comment. But of course the media portrays Hezbollah and the Shia community in general as Takfiris, who cut off women's noses Taliban-style.

As Hizbollah has not dissociated itself from Iran, this is rather understandable. I have the impression that Hizb and the Shias in Lebanon generally are less islamic. But they are far from being secular.

Yes because Iran follows Pashtun tribal codes and cuts off noses. Thumbs up for the enlightened analysis.
