As-Salām Alaykum,

as I have been telling it before - I' am an aspiring Shia, but, still, there are a few serious issues.

I have had several discussions on Facebook lately, and also from my previous 'general' impression - it appears, there is no discipline, no unity, no strong community feeling, a big laxity and ambitions;

from what I gather:

1) about Marjas - Shias say - it doesn't matter, we do as we ourselves find it right or as we wish;

2) about Hijab wearing - Ohh, it's only between Me and God, nobody can require it.....in Religion there is no compulsion.... and other excuses......and the same thing about many, many other things and questions.....

- Friends, on my scale - those things mean Disbelief and Kufr!

I am not in Religion - "between me and God", or as I myself believe or not,  - but in Religion - to Submit myself for the community interests, and to work for Community, to spread Religion for benefit of whole community, to fight for all community..... and this is what I naturally would expect from anybody who is a wittness of a faith.... if they chose disbelief - then only it is between them and God..... But if they choose to be in a Team - I expect a Teamwork.....

With such an attitude - one cannot take on the job and duty of Religion - and work every day as a Horse - for the benefit of all Community - while the most of Community is sleeping in their holes and doesn't care..... some go to war for a duty, others are running to Europe and Americas and telling - Sorry, it is between Me and God only; Nope, you must go on and fight for all; even if you are a female or old or sick or far from war - each one is fighting and working in their own place... it is not anybodies "private matter"....

as an old saying of Soviet Army says:  "If can not - we will teach you, if you don't wish - we will force you...."

May be I am disgusted, but I think Community-wise - to Sunnis I wwould trust much better; even for the the most crooked Sunni - those are sacred things - the Community and a Duty.

How can somebody convert to Shia - if Shias themselves are cursing their Marjas?!

In Sunni way - I think, if some shot me, there will be a thousand to replace me. With Shias - I cannot get that feeling....

Wa alai kum salaam.

There is no such thing as an aspiring shia. You can just as well come here and say, "you have issues with shias"

No discipline? No unity?

25+ million gather in karbala every year and shout "Labaik Ya Hussain"? 

Only shias commemorate "Yaum Al-Quds" and sunnis attack those rallies. When was the last time sunnis rallied for the Palestinians who happen to to be 99% sunni?

1) not really; Usooli shias follow a marja.

2) unless 100% sunni women wear the Hijab, this is an absolutely stupid statement to make.

Newsflash - people are converting to shia islam aka true Islam every day. When was the last time all sunnis United for any cause? You can't even get prominent sunni scholars to condemn terrorism.

Of course, as a Sunni you would give reference to violence and terrorism. Don't worry, no shia will shoot you.

Well turning to facebook probably isnt the best way to learn about God.

If you ask people on facebook about investing your money, did you accept their answers?

I am going to only focus on the media and its campaign against the " Hijab".  Who is behind it / and financing it is a different topic. They have figured out the insecurity and image conscious attitude, of the Muslims and they are milking it. Muslims have an improper understanding of the slogan "Freedom" some what be be more liberal/secular and westerner than the actual liberal/secular and western people. Again its stems from their inferiority complex and their zeal to be accepted as equals. Some how they assign this " Status" to secular ideas. They are seeing them as a Standard to live up to or follow. 

Back of their mind, in most cases is - What will they(Westners/Secular/Liberals) say about us. If they see us do this or believe this or etc...its the modern day idol worshiping.

You are not joining a country club or a fraternity. The whole world could turn godless, why would this matter to you, in terms of you recognizing and testifying to the Truth?

Yes, I am joining Fraternity, I have been in many religions, in Buddhism, In Hinduism for 20 years...... I could find the Truth - in every religion.....

The only thing I missed in Hinduism - was strict rules, so nobody would make their own reules or understanding - but I had people to share my spiritual heritage with, this is indeed my most important point.....

You know - Hinduism - some think it is religion, others say - it is not a religion, some believe in Vishnu, some in Shiva, some something other, others don't practice religion at all....

Religion - is always a Religion;

but I aam looking for Fraternity and the method to shape the society in a better way, so they can not say - It is not a religion or something like this..

I don't care what we set as a Truth, the main point is - to Change the Whole Society after that better Truth;

At personal, family, community and State level. ( what you would call Religion and Secular). 

Religion is a way of life. (Everything you do)

My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world's most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels.

....

We see, then, that the Arab conquests of the seventh century have continued to play an important role in human history, down to the present day. It is this unparalleled combination of secular and religious influence which I feel entitles Muhammad to be considered the most influential single figure in human history.

Of course, religiously we may believe in it. Though, I've never been in any real Muslim country, I've never been outside Europe, so I would appreciate also Shariah Patrols in London, an obvious Sunni initiative, and I know - many Shias would call it "a judging others" or an "oppression"

What's the point of marjas then? We all follow our marjas because they are more knowledgeable than us. I haven't met a Shia Muslim who disregards their Marja's rulings.

about Hijab wearing - Ohh, it's only between Me and God, 

Hijab like any other Islamic practice is only between a Muslim and his Lord. We are all only accountable by God, we don't answer to anyone else. If anything, it's the sunni influencers on YouTube who have brought in the style of wearing the turban and showing more skin etc. I'm not blaming sunni Muslims for that, but it does put everything in perspective for you.

Since when was religion about pleasing the community and it's interests? Is that what the Prophet (pbuh) did? Or is that what imam hussein and imam ali (as) did? Well, in the west, the wider community wants me to take off the hijab and go to nightclubs and form many relationships before I get married. Do you suggest I do that? Because Islam is about submitting yourself to the community interest? Islam is about submitting yourself to God. End of. You shouldn't care about submitting yourself to the community. Submitting yourself to God will immediately make you a teamworker and make you a contributing member to society. Not the other way round.

Is that honestly the only thing stopping you from converting to shiasm? Once again, you're generalizing. Not many shias at all curse their marjas. And, those who do are radical. There are radicals in every group of people. Its no surprise that there are radical shias. 

With shias, I feel a huge sense of unity and oneness. Especially in muharram. We all gather to commemorate the loss of our imam. We go on peaceful marches to educate and inform people who don't know about imam hussein. We cook for eachother, we house strangers in our homes...go look at Iraq in muharram and arba3een. Tell me you find that hospitality with any other sect.

Just gonna echo some thoughts of above posts,

1) about Marjas - Shias say - it doesn't matter, we do as we ourselves find it right or as we wish;

 

So? your concern is truth, i.e. Quran & Ahlulbayt (a.s). If you recognize Imam Ali (a.s) as the rightful successor to the Prophet (pbuhf), and you believe and take the teaching of ahlulbayt (a.s), sorry to inform you but you're already Shia whether you like the community or not.

However if you recognize the above as truth and you adopt the practices contrary to that truth just to feel better about yourself and/or please others, then may Allah forgive us and make us of the righteous.

It is between them and God. Some people may be struggling and feeling regretful about it everyday, others might feel terrible about it in the future - you don't know how they feel, what their struggle is, nor do you know whether or not Allah will forgive them for not wearing hijab. Focus on yourself and your shortcomings.

That's all I wanted to say.

You did misunderstood many parts of what I said....

I'm not going "to please" community in the way you mean, but in the sense of sharing & teaching religion, visiting religious meetings and such, working for my religious website, translating and publishing texts, even praying is done for the community - to bring the Global Change and Revolution;

Just sometimes it seems - nobody cares for that, may be I am doing for myself only?!

No, I am happy without all extra worries, at my home, without working for public interest; Ohh, well, I am born with this, I've never seen another life, and still... I could as well do like many, just enjoy a life and do nothing for the revolution....

About Marjas.....

I was doing research about Cursing many do - and I brought them Ruling by Ayatullahs https://www.al-islam.org/mutual-respect-peaceful-co-existence-among-muslim/2-abusing-insulting-leaders-sunni-madhhab

- which basically says - Cursing is condemned by Authorities..... but they all still do and enjoy it......

- I am not allowed to curse , whatever it would be...... I was 20 years ago practicing Buddhism - I have given a Vow to my Teacher - to always work for the benefit and saving of all beings without any exception, I have never been cursing anybody and I will not, so - for me to accept something - all such Hate, Black Magick, etc should be excluded...... You are free to criticize reasonably or declare an eror, but for me personally Cursing is completely forbidden due to a Vow, and it cannot be changed.....and also I think it's a form of black magick too....I know, witches do this....

[Shakir 2:34] And when We said to the angels: Make obeisance to Adam they did obeisance, but Iblis (did it not). He refused and he was proud, and he was one of the unbelievers.
[Pickthal 2:34] And when We said unto the angels: Prostrate yourselves before Adam, they fell prostrate, all save Iblis. He demurred through pride, and so became a disbeliever.
[Yusufali 2:34] And behold, We said to the angels: "Bow down to Adam" and they bowed down. Not so Iblis: he refused and was haughty: He was of those who reject Faith.

as an old saying of Soviet Army says:  "If can not - we will teach you, if you don't wish - we will force you...."

May be I am disgusted, but I think Community-wise - to Sunnis I wwould trust much better; even for the the most crooked Sunni - those are sacred things - the Community and a Duty.

How can somebody convert to Shia - if Shias themselves are cursing their Marjas?!

In Sunni way - I think, if some shot me, there will be a thousand to replace me. With Shias - I cannot get that feeling....

Are trying to follow Shiaism by looking at people opinions and life styles or by looking at the Prophet SAW and Imams A.S

Yes, we can judge,

but with understanding - to save them from alll evil;

I should liberate all from evil, not to send evil on anybody.

At least - it is an Intention. If Intention is Good, but somebody suffers - it whether from evil inside them or from God; it's not my business; in that way I was not the cause of their evil;

Were you in the red army ?

If u were that's awesome,  I have great respect for Russian military esp the way they dealt with the Afghan bandits in the 80s

No, actually I were not. I was 16 when the changes started in the country, in 1991.... and actually Afghanistan campaign is considered an error.... not much information did we had about Afghanistan even in 80-s, unofficially and from those directly involved only on most part....

Actually, my native language is Latvian, somebody earlier asked, it's a language of a 1 million speakers worldwide :) And since 1991 I am living in an independent country Latvia.... 1.8 million people altogether, some 40% are ethnic Russian speaking "minority"..... something new and foreign to me....

Of course, I was raised as a Soviet and loving Soviet country and ideals we were raised with.... It was a great tragedy for many idealists what happened here in 1991.....

Most people were simple & somewhat naive people..... without a clue about the Capitalist Western world and without a need for it..... Most people had a simple & good life.... We had not to fight much about money and a place to live, we had nothing like pornographies, american blockbusters or homosexuals - all that was ruled out..... We had a TV, books and journals - without any bad things, crimes, accidents and inappropriate content - that all was ce nsored out and forbidden, at least some 95% ... we had not to worry every day - what bad & terrible things are going on again every day.....

...so, after 1991 it all was flooded in from Western countries, all their corrupt propaganda world.......

Of course, I know Russian fluently since very small age..... Russian language was in TV, in books, in neghbours and we started to learn Russian since 2nd grade by describing images in a book in Russian :) So - Russian is my 2nd language, but we know it almost as a native..... I have many books and I read Russian websites every day.....

After USSR collapsed - I went into Religions - to change the world through religions....

When I was younger - I was nice and soft person - I started into Philosophies, then in Buddhism....then in Hinduism..... I was ready to be nice and patient with people and change them slowly..... But - there are no strict rules.....

What I cannot bear most of all - are Capitalists, Western lifestyle, Liberals and Atheists - I need to change them all and with whatever religion can help me to accomplish that sooner....In a peaceful way, I mean, but people around should be really determined and burning about it! - It makes me crazy seeing liberal Shias! I have a half life spent, and the Corrupt and dirty world is yet not much changed! I want it to change soon!

I am strictly agains Wahhabi/Salafi sect - because they do not change, do not live a Saintly live and kill and murder people; but I like the determination! Every religious person should work every day with that zeal and discipline and determination Wahhabis do! but we should do better than Wahhabis.

Why don't you explore Sufi islam or eastern orthodox church their austere and anti materialistic life might appeal to you more 

Unfortunately the shiaism of abu dhar and earliest followers of imam Ali is long gone and replaced by the Shiaism of kings and ulemas who were always  their stooges

I am praying for Iran, to stay strong and discipline and educate liberals!

I hear many Iranians are telling they are not taught religion in families, to not "oppress" them; what a disaster!

Yes, I am currently in Sūfism. I consider Shiaism, and politically I support them, but I want to see the austere, disciplined and holy life; I expect more talks about Alī's recommendations for holy living, less political propaganda and fighting against Sunnis, that is far secondary...

Russian Orthodox Christianity is somewhat good (but there also is some corruption among priests, mostly about money and illegal gifts); but I never could understand Christianity :(

I like some Saints and such in Christianity, but the firstborn sin and Christ has paid for all sins - that is beyond my understanding...

A third hadith is from the Present Imam, Muhammad al-Mahdi, peace be upon him, who said in a reply to Ishaq ibn Ya'qub:

"As far as newly occurring circumstances are concerned, you should turn (for guidance) to the narrators of our ahadith, for they are my proof over you just as I am Allah's proof."6

Like Ghadeer Khumm, this time the instructions are for us to refer to the "Narrators of Hadith" we are not left with out guidance.

Hi here you can find interesting articles

Salām,

Thanks, but many of your given examples sound somewhat starnge:

I am quoting from the link above:

Quote

a little about myself... I love to listen to Hindi Songs and watch hindi movies, Play videogames, and hang out with friends who are all sunni but none of them are extreme... unfortunately here the shia community is very small and isolated... i would love to attend a shia mosque but because i'm in taqiyya

I don't want to sound offensive, but ...

it doesn't matter - Sunni or Shia, he should stop listenting entertaing pop music and videogames; the both things are Haram or at least very, very suspicious.

... Your other example was a schoolboy in 8th grade.....

And the main problem starts - when such kind of people come to the Facebook - and start doing their own Ijtihad and telling me - Ayatollahs and Marjas are "Fallible"..... Yes, they are Fallible, but they are the best of the Fallible, the Educated and Recognized Fallible; not somebody from Facebook
