Sigh. Horrible come back - such a rookie mistake at 3:35 he completely misunderstood the Arabic. Can't be making such blunders on such a large platform.

Send him a message. We need to work together, and people like him are one of the few taking the fight to these people.

I am watching his video and honnestly I don't really like the way he compares great scholars to some Sunni armed groups like boko haram just because they criticize openly sahabas or say that a Muslim is not a real Muslim if doesn't believe in imamah.

Does anyone feel that users are often influenced by the first or second post on a thread and or the rank of the user at hand? If it's good , people jump on a bandwagon, if not they don't. That's why I tend to make the first post at least on my threads and preempt certain replies before people jump onto any bandwagon, to give them a little bit of relief to think for themselves.

While I have a lot of respect for you and your knowledge, surely it is important to not say everything one knows, if these are your views brother. In your post, you have openly said Sunnis/Sunni symbols are  Kuffar in reality, and more dirty than dogs and pigs. I mean, that surely goes against the advice of our scholars which explicitly forbids us to engage in discussions like this, say things like this, whatever people may or may not themselves believe. 

If you have these views, would you recommend Muslim doctors in the United Kingdom to talk about Hudood laws for homosexuality and be struck off and cause Fitnah? Somethings shouldn't be in the public discourse, even if someone has a view. I can guarantee your post is going to be used by them now and as someone who has family in areas of the world where being a Shia is dangerous, having these things put out on Shiachat among lay people I feel brother, with all due respect, is going to do more harm than good.

You want to hide the views Shi'I scholars have held and openly expressed for 14 centuries, even after the Sunnis have repeatedly exposed these views to the world on their blogs, websites and YouTube channels - such as from the very book of Imam Khomeini himself? Who are you kidding? Shi'as need to stop embarrassing themselves on public forums.

Many of our scholars have advised the lay public, or those with knowledge mingling among lay public to not delve into discussions like this which are very technical and have the potential to cause Fitnah. Most of our scholars would not support anybody coming onto an online forum and publicly declaring Sunnis and their revered personalities as more Najis than pigs or dogs, and Kuffar in reality. Irrespective what your view is, or the view of whoever you feel held a particular position, surely you must understand what you might discuss with people who share your view in your own circles is not what should be shared on a public forum full of lay people. What the brother in the video is doing, whether he knows it or not, is arguably the most sensible thing to do, whether or not you agree with what he says. I hope you understand what I am saying.

Hudud law do not apply in non-Muslim lands, so it is irrelevant. Nevertheless, we can still express our views regarding homosexuality and that it is punishable by death as per classical Fiqh, in an Islamic government when the conditions are met. In fact, Sunni and Shia scholars do not hide this fact - and there is no reason to beat around the bush either because the non-Muslims know Islam's position on this matter and it is clear as daylight.  

 

There are many Muslim doctors who would be struck off if they went into a mosque and began publicly talking about how they believe gay people who are caught in the act and have the required witnesses should be thrown off a building, executed and other such things. In fact, some speakers from Iran have come to western countries and spoke about these things, and were then recorded and the amount of unneeded fitnah caused was startling though not surprising.

There is nothing to be gained in going around and publicly calling revered Sunni symbols or Sunnis themselves worse than pigs or dogs and kuffar in reality, if an individual has that view.

17 minutes ago, Ibn al-Hussain said:

If you think that your opponents need to rely on a ShiaChat post to come up with counter arguments, it definitely shows your naivety and as well as under-estimation of your opponents - who many on this forum including myself (although perhaps most of those members have now left) have been debating them since we were teenagers.

 

I had hoped you would have taken a more nuanced understanding with what I was trying to say. People who quote Shiachat, and make video montages of Shia speakers don't need to do that, but it is far more powerful to show others and rouse their emotions when you can provide evidence of it being done by Shias. That has the ability to cause far more outrage. As someone who has been on this site since 2004, you should know this forum is often the first port of call many have with Shia Islam, has visitors from all over the world, and has lay people scanning it from other sects and sharing things. I have been on the receiving end of some of the things shared on here, from outright abusing revered symbols in the most immature of manners, and I have seen the emotions that incites.

Just as a note, I know the likes of Farid, Hani, etc and the extent they have poured into our books, our manner of grading, obscure and unknown scholars, and I know they own libraries of these books. They can cite a thousand pages, but nothing is more effective than a bad-mouthed overzealous Shia abusing and engaging in sensitive topics in a manner our scholars have warned us not to.

If you really believe it is a good idea to go on a public forum and post your view of Sunnis being kuffar in reality, worse than pigs and dogs, you can continue to do so. My duty was to speak out against it, and as someone with a vast number of Sunni family members (including immediate) that sort of rhetoric being common place among the people would not just destroy families, it can cause wars and bloodshed.

Just as a reminder, could anyone explain to me how it is acceptable on Shiachat to refer to Sunnis and their Symbols as "kuffar in reality" and "worse than pigs and dogs"? Would you like me to email some of the grand scholars and notable shuyukh we have as to why that is just not acceptable, no matter how well respected the person saying it is?

That is a very incorrect use of the tradition of Imam Ali b. Abi Talib (عليه السلام) and actually a slander on brother Muzaffer Hyder. To openly refer to him as a fool is taking it too far.

Brother, we can give an academic account which is a far more powerful way to educate our children as to why we believe certain personalities usurped the right of Imam Ali (عليه السلام), educating them on ways to not only comprehend it intuitively, evidence it textually, but convey it to others sensitively and with Hikmah. Why do you feel the need to educate our children to abuse, malign, bad-mouth and cause Fitnah, which our scholars and our Aimmah forbid us to do, and which would not help anyone understand anyones position, and serve the purpose of incredible discord.

There is no judgement of intentions here. I am commenting on his ACTIONS which he might have done with good intentions but they ended up harming the Shias and this is EXACTLY what Imam Ali (عليه السلام) has said regarding a foolish friend which he has proven himself to be not once but twice, first with the British Shi'ism exposed video and now this. He calls himself a Shia and then makes videos 'exposing' other Shias to the whole world? Wow! Apologies for calling him foolish, he deserves a big pat on the back.

I am not saying any of these views are my views - I don't incline to such views due to serious theological and historical problems I find in such rhetoric.

You added this in after I had made my quote. In that case, you have absolutely no need in promoting such views. You yourself see the flaws in them, and surely you should equally see the enormous fitnah posting those views on a forum of lay people can have. 

Would Sayed Ali Khamanei, or Sayed Ali Sistani approve of seminary students coming onto a forum of lay people and posting quotes about how Sunnis are worse than pigs and dogs, or Kuffar in reality? 

It's not even contest, you know that answer better than anyone else. I'm asking you, as a fellow Shia who has had family abused and harassed and has feared for his life in certain anti-Shiite countries, and as you are one of the most knowledgable users on here with influence, to reconsider your approach to this.

With this in mind, should the likes of Shaikh Yasser al Habib be considered controversial among Shia? And has he said anything explicitly against Shia teachings/beliefs? As he has been attacked on here in a few threads.

Why are you acting as though this video was somehow majorly scandalous? Do you want him to come out and say that Imam Khomeini (allegedly) said Sunnis are Kuffar in reality and worse than dogs and pigs? A real fool would do that.

Of course that way is right way and it is wrong to abuse the character which Qur'an clearly teach not to do such a thing. But showing such Hadiths and laws that we hold correct should not be hide because it make others angry, it has nothing to do with abusing them.

You are probably one of the most knowledgable users on here. Most of us are lay people. We have no business in technical discussions on issues you yourself see problematic on several levels brother.

I am not, I am just stating the fact that these videos of his caused harm to Shias. It's you who are in crisis mode like you always are whenever you hear the slightest comment that might offend Sunnis.

More like damage limitation mode, on other forums, to family members, and when fearing for my life and the life of many Shia family members I know for certain are hounded and abused because of what foul-mouthed Shias say. I actually live in a safe area of the world in terms of being a Shia. You live in Pakistan, you more than anyone else should realise the wisdom in how we conduct public discourse. Everything I am doing will benefit you and your children, and the safety of so many oppressed globally and live under danger and persecution.

Slight?

Calling them Kuffar in reality and referring to them as worse than dogs and pigs, as well as to their revered symbols?

This has nothing to do with the issue at hand.

Referring to Islamic pulse either you don't stir the pot about these things or you say what's factually correct. That's why I repeatedly discouraged making a response video in the other thread.

12-13 years back, when I had selected a house available on rent for my family, I met with the landlord and introduced myself to him. He asked me, after listening my name, "are you Shia", I said yes I am. He said sorry, we can rentout our house to any Hindu but never toany Shia.

10-11 years back, I was invited in a birthday party of my collegue, we gathered at his house after maghrib prayers but he was not present at home. After some time when he came back, we complaint that he invited us and himself were absent. So he told us that the Imam of mosque, after finishing maghrib prayers, started a lecture and in that he mentioned a very interesting thing which I have noted carefully. Another collegue asked him about that interesting thing, he said Imam has mentioned that it is allowed to eat and drink with any dog but it is forbidden to eat or drink with any Shia. 

I steped up and said so that means I should leave because I am a Shia. And I came back home.
