Amen Uponthesunnah!!! 

Peace and God bless you!!! :)

We need more people like you on these boards to spread around some love and civility. There's far too much hostility, seething hatred, cliques, and tribalism on a supposed shia islamic forum.

Salam IbnSina,

I love America, the country where God created me in my mother's womb, the land where my sisters and cousins and many of my friends also call home, so I have no desire to wish death for our country. May God greatly bless America!!! :) 

I love Israel (though I've never been there), because God chose the Children of Israel regardless of if other people agree or not. May God greatly bless Israel!!! :)

I love Palestine (though I've never been there) because God loves both Palestinians and Israelis, and wants neighbors, including neighboring countries like Israel and Samaria) to love each other.  May God greatly bless Palestine!!! :)

And may God greatly bless the USA's neighbors México and Canada!!! :) I have been to both countries several times and have made awesome friends from both countries. A brother-in-law is Canadian too.

I love Iran (though I've never been there) because God loves people of all nations. Jesus Christ said to love even our enemies (people who wish death to one's country can be considered an enemy). May God greatly bless Iran!!! :) 

Ibn Sina, I love you as a brother in humanity even if you hate me. Why? Because God loves both you and me, and God created people for His glory, not to kill each other or wish death to each other or to each other's countries.

May God greatly bless you Ibn Sina with life filled with His amazing grace, love, joy and peace!!! :) 

I have no problem with American citizens aslong as they don't support the government. But yes, death to American government and Israel.

Salam Uponthesunnah, 

Thanks! There are many Muslim people on Shiachat (including you) who are loving and kind and good, even to people with whom they disagree. :)

Thanks so much for spreading love and for being a wonderful representative of Shia Islam!!! :)

Peace and God bless you

Salam Ali al-Abdullah,

I don't agree with or support every decision the US government does, but I don't wish death upon them. I do wish they repent of sins and no longer invade other peoples and no longer engage in any corruption.

Quote

Both the American government and Israel are composed of people, and I don't wish death on any person or country, because God created people to live, and He wants people to repent of their sins.

May God greatly bless you Ali al-Abdullah with life full of His amazing grace, love, joy and peace! May God bless your country with the same!!! :)

To see a day where a muslim gets condemned for condemning oppressors by a fellow muslim.

You know when the muslim society goes to hell? When the men of reason tries to do that which makes most people happy instead of doing that which is right regardless what emotional response it may have.

May Allah(SWT) hasten the return of our Imam(ajf).

 

@Christianlady

You do not understand what I am saying because you do not want to understand it. It is like I am writing something in one language and you are reading it in another.

Your country was founded on violence, rape and murder. The killings of natives, the stealing of their lands. It was built by the slavery of Africans, grown by unjust wars, the supporting of crazy dictators in self interest, the invading of countries to steal resources, the selling of weapons to everyone, the financial support of terrorist organizations, the destruction of democratic nations in self interest, the money worshiping capitalism, the first and only users of the atomic bomb, should I go on? Today, america is truly a modern third world country.

But no, you will still raise their flags and sing their anthems. You should think as a human thats part of planet earth before thinking like a human thats part of a nation.

I wish your government to be put before trial against crimes done to humanity, I wish your government to be disbanded and I wish for the american people to have a government that is truly thinking in their best interest, not a police state that gives you fake freedom while surveilling your every word and action (NSA), not a government where under its rule moral corruption has been wide spread. I want something for american people that is far better than you realize and is far more humane.

Though the people of america seems to want something ells as you can see by the support of trump, not that hilary is any better, one of them is a loud idiot and the other a silent snake.

Either way, go ahead and misunderstand me.

Salam IbnSina,

"Death to America" is a statement that is just as clear as "Death to Iran" or "Death to [insert country here]" Out of curiosity, what is your native country? Would you appreciate it if someone said death to your native country?

The USA has many sins, including all those you mentioned above, and God will punish each person in the USA and in every other country who has done and who will do any of the above sins.

Today, america is truly a modern third world country.

I disagree. The definition of a third world country is the following:

noun, (sometimes lowercase)

1.the underdeveloped nations of the world, especially those with widespread poverty.
2.the group of developing nations, especially of Asia and Africa, that do not align themselves with the policies of either the U.S. or the former Soviet Union.

Out of curiosity, is English your first language?

God will bring every government to trial, no worries, including the government of your country. God is the Best Judge ever!!! :)

If you want this, why say "Death to America"? Why not say "Better Government for America'? Words matter.

If you want to be understood, it's important to use words that mean what you want to convey. If someone ever said "Death" to your country, would you believe that person wanted a better government for your country, or death for your country?

Peace and God bless you

What do you mean? Didnt america save you guys from the evil guys they trained back in the days against the war against the soviet union? Didnt they kill that one guy bin laden who was the mastermind? Whos proof of killing there is none and whos corpse was given a quick "islamic burial" because suddenly the US military respected his islamic traditions?

Isnt everything perfect in afghanistan now? Dont you guys have freedom and democracy now? Isnt it much better now that america is easing of your burdens of having too much opium in the country by helping you guys get rid of it for free?

What do you mean? Your not happy? Well you should turn the other cheek so they can slap that one as well, that will teach those guys not to do this again...

I hope you realize the amount of sarcasm in this post.

Its funny how a "big strong" country like america went into a "poor weak country" like afghanistan and they didnt accomplish anything, left it in a worse state than before and ran out of the country (excluding the opium fields).

Salam Ali al-Abdullah,

I did not know you are from Afghanistan. I understand why you don't want to forgive America. Definitely the US government did evil by invading Afghanistan. :(

Personally, I have always disagreed with my government's decision to invade other nations, including Afghanistan and Iraq. :( I wish the US could go back in the past and not have invaded either country, nor have done anything against Iran either. However, only God controls time. 

I do think that if you want to do so, you can forgive America with God's help, but that's your decision. Jesus Christ said to forgive, but sadly not even every Christian obeys Jesus Christ.

There are many Americans who disagree with the decision to invade Afghanistan; I'm not the only one. May God heal and bless Afghanistan with His amazing love, strength and power. May God help the people of Afghanistan to recover from the wounds inflicted by the USA and any other nation and help the people of Afghanistan make their country a wonderful and good country for His glory

Thank you. Like I said, I don't think I will be able to forgive the government, however I have no problem with American people

I know that you meant well in your post  but people rarely forgive invaders no matter who it is. If you truly understand Ali's reasons, I think you would  spare the Christian lecture.

Salam Ali al-Abdullah,

I understand. Thanks for explaining.

Peace and God bless you, and God bless Afghanistan. God will punish the American leaders who hurt Afghanistan, and those who hurt anybody anywhere. God is Just and will hold them accountable on Judgement Day.

@ChristianladyWhenever anyone says " Death to America" in here, well...that is pretty harsh language and  surely problematic , but I don't read it as them wanting death to me or you. They want death to the imperialism, greed, supremacy,etc. that this nation-state has foisted upon other peoples. At least that's the way I read it.

 

PS...I myself would like that version of " America" to die.
