I'm just a lurker, but my experience has been absolutely excellent. If it wasn't for this place my faith would be extremely shaken, since the knowledgeable people here always clear my doubts by demolishing any argument and accusation against Islam. It's like having a personal army of bodyguards, ready to defend and strengthen my faith. This site is a blessing and don't let the negative people make you feel otherwise.

I AGREE!

Bismehe Ta3ala,

Assalam Alikum dear brother.

Can't stand :liar: :blabla:

I try to spot the bots and :brucelee:

I'm in :love: with :braveheart: seeking :respect:able dignified brothers and sisters :muslima:who stand for principles no matter their ethnic or religious background.

@Zain tries to come every year to remind mods and admins to add Wa Alikum assalam, but they just like to agitate him so he can visit every year.

Imam Husayn (عليه السلام) said in the day of Ashura: "If you do not have any religion, then at least be free (open-minded) in your present life."

إن لم يكن لكم دين فكونوا أحراراً في دنياكم.

So many great memories, I like to go back and read what I posted when I first joined.  Shows where I was, where I have been and how I am now.  

Thank you brother for your contribution to the site :thankyou:, you are opening great threads!  Keep it up.  

God bless you.

M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah

Why would any of us be here if it weren't mostly good?

Maybe its for the same reason why people mine for gold even though most of what they will find will be normal rocks.

Social media is toxic, it’s better if we all just quit it. 

I do not consider ShiaChat "social media". It is better than those quips, sound bites and un-thought-out responses.

I have been on ShiaChat for a decade now. There is some truth in the "ShiaChat Addiction" tag --for me and a few other members.

Since we have forums, most of the time each of us has to compose a response or post. The biggest benefit I have gotten is in articulating my thought(s).

This leads to my one negative comment. Not to rehash or challenge the Mods, but last year I was up for "banning". In short, I quoted Qur'an and pointed out that as Qur'an reveals another person could do better. It was never pointed out to me what was confusing, only that I 'broke' a cardinal rule. So l am still confused, even though I got a one time pass. Therefore, I am more careful about how someone else could emotionally react rather than the quality of my writing.

Another thing I like is we get news we otherwise won't know. An article from a foreign paper, TV reports, and so on. And because so many members are serious and cross check things, has ShiaChat ever had un-corrected 'fake news'? I don't remember any. Do you?

good. It changed my beliefs a lot. I remember when I used to go to this site to answer my Ahkam questions cause I didn't know much like laws concerning prayer, recitation, wudhu etc..

after that I took a bit of a break came back later to learn more things and noticed certain famous members were gone like Ethics, Macisac who ehhh moving on. During this time I remember looking at Sunni Shia debates and being fascinated by the knowledge some of the members had who I don't see here anymore. 

the next stage was the Wilayat Faqeeh and shirazi debates I would look at. this was a few years later, Again fascinated by the knowledge of the WF many of them I also don’t see much anymore, one of them is also gone4awhile. I learned a lot from them and those debates changed my views on the subject. I became a follower of WF and that path. 

Now A lot of the people left and when I see repetitive topics like "mutah help!!" or "why aliyun waliullah in athan?" It makes miss the old days of Khamenei (ha) vs shirazi [lol] or some other topic I found interesting not saying  I want to see those debates again but some other exciting and engaging topic would be cool. 

I guess its the fact that I always used shiachat to learn things and I don't have exciting topics in mind that bring vibrant debates anymore. Could also be that a lot of the cool senior members left but not all though.  

I still use the website on occasion and find it fun to chat with cool members in the chatroom.

I'm new to ShiaChat, but what I do notice is a lot of questions on low faith, doubts in one's deeds, topics that bug young Muslims like sexuality and refutations of topics brought up on Quora and the like. 

I still haven't found the people I was looking for when I joined, but it makes for better entertainment than other platforms like Facebook.

And what people were you looking for, if I may ask?

People in my local area to chat with and go to the arbaeen in the area with. I guess it was a long shot really.

Salam,

How has your ShiaChat experience been? Mention both the positives as well as the negatives.

wa alaykum salaam,

The current negative is the appearance of the mobile chat indicator @ the bottom right corner of the screen. Due to it having numbers that changes, the brain is disrupted. Numbers are Somethings.

The positives are embedded in the heart and prayers

Heart beat like experience, critical like the faint pulse.

Meaning they have different meanings. eg 1 always brings about the thought of Allah's oneness not being numerical. 2 reminds of pairs or opposites. 3 maybe a tree, that tree :gossip:tree. 4... 5... 6... 7...

8 upright represent diseases, eg A.I.D.S, on it's side it represents infinity( cure/purity). In other areas the opposite of 8 is 6 which is "spoil us"...

& etc
