AOA, i just wanted to know if anyone could recommend any good shia scholars videos, or channels, in english. i'm trying to learn more about my religion, and hope that you'll all comment some good ways i can expand my knowledge. i will be learning through reading the Holy Quran, and Najul Balagha, but also wanted to listen to some good meaningful lectures, or short videos, you know how theres 'mercifulservant' and 'theprophetspath; on youtube. Are there any shia based channels like this? They make short videos and tell beautiful stories and very nicely relate things to tell about the topic they choose. Thank for the help in advance!! 

Jazakallah Khair <3

Salam, 

I don't have any idea about YouTube channels. I search using the lecturer's names. These days I am listening to Br.Khalil Jaffer. Sayed Ammar Nakhshwani and Hasnain RajabAli also popular among Shia youth. 

Nahjul balagha is a difficult book. Understanding it requires a lot of background knowledge especially on history.  

You can go to Al-islam.org and look up some easier and smaller books on the topics of your interest. 

Best of luck!

I've heard Ammar Nakhwani is not really someone who should be taken seriously on all the topics he covers. I do agree that some things he has explained and talked about are correct, however ive heard some things are not. Just like the tattoo topic, which i do think is a bit controversial since temporary tattoos are not allowed accordning to the sayings he takes support from and ive always thought, isnt henna just that?

although i do agree , islam al-org is amazing!

Tattoos are allowed in our religion. At least my marja Agha Sistani allows them and I think so do most of the other marjas. Whether a religious lecturer should get them or not is a matter of personal opinion.
