I am not Muslim, but I have a question (if anyone could possibly answer me): What is the difference between Sunni Islam and Shia Islam?

I'm not too sure but i think the biggest difference is that after the death of the prophet (PBUH) there was a disagreement on who his successor was gonna be. The sunnies wanted the leader to be chosen from the community while the Shias wanted him to be chosen from the prophets family. The leader ended up being chosen from the community but the shias refused to recognise this leader. I think thats what led to divide but there are also minor differences like sunnies pray 5 times a day while Shias pray 3.

wa laykumu salÄm smile.png Thats great but are you only fasting to get slim?? If thats your only intention it kinda defeats the whole purpose of fasting so i hope you can really think about. Theres nothing wrong with eating healthier and getting slim as a result (that makes more sense then putting on weight after Ramadan ) but that shouldn't be your reason for fasting.

Came across a video i wanted to share, Most of the lectures/ dawah speakers are men and often target young men/ parents ect. So its really refreshing to see a brother who recognises just how much guidance young muslim women need/speaks to us in a way we can understand/relate.

(I'm sorry if this gets ranty)

 

On a scale of 1-10 how tiring is to to constantly defend your faith against "edgy intellectuals" every time a terrorist attack occurs?

 

How tired are you everytime you get blamed for something you had no power to stop or influence?

 

I'm so sick of seeing this bullcrap on OH where people love to dish out blame against Muslims bc it's the easy way out.

 

WTF do you expect Muslims to do?

 

Stop ISIS?

 

Preach against their crazy bullshit when it shouldn't have to be their job to constantly defend their religion bc you want a scapegoat?

 

So how do you constantly deal with it?

 

Where if you do speak out against ISIS you're "not doing enough" but if you don't speak out at all you "condone" their actions. 

 

I'm not a Muslim but I get drained every time I have to read someone blame regular Muslims for the wrong doings of a cult (which is entirely unrelated to Islam).

dont waste time

 

these people wont change

 

even if they did, OH has like 10k active members 

 

New york city alone has 8.5 million 

 

dragon ball z Kazenshuu forum has 1k active members 

 

I live in one of the smallest towns in my country but the population is 500k

 

etc

 

what im trying to say is you cant convince everyone, why waste your time and hurt your head over 3-4 random dudes on a kpop forum lol. dont waste your time with people who dont deserve it. The more you defend, the more you're hurting yourself cause they're not gonna remember anything you say. Plus it will screw with your worldview, you'll start to think these ignoramuses are everywhere even though they're a small minority , but when you debate often your brain automatically starts detecting more of them and ignores all the good

OMO we're so close to ramadhan

 

I'm so happy, when I was a kid I really hate fasting but start from junior high school that's the month I always anticipate, but now that I work I can't do many religious activities unlike when we school the whole month filled with it (I live in a moeslem majority country)

As a non-muslim, that was admirable of you. You certainly know better and understand us.

 

I am so tired. Tired of seeing my religion gets the blame for all the crimes a few group of people that calls themselves "Muslims" and "jihadists" does, when in fact none of their actions are condoned by Islam at all. I'm tired of people twisting the words of Quran and citing sources that was not authentic and certified by learned Muslim scholars (that studies Arabic and the Quran and all branches of Islamic law sources for years to interpret it) so that they can use it for their benefit and attack innocent Muslims more.

 

This current tragedy took a lot in me, and facing all the blames was bad enough. But Islam taught me to be patient because in Islam, God does not burden us beyond what we can bear. So I'll be patient, and speak for myself virtuously as well. But if they won't listen then they're not worth my attention.

 

I really thought I won't deal with it here on OH, a K-POP FORUM, but alas there are always little vermins everywhere. Let them stay uneducated, and let them stay ignorant. It's useless talking with people who won't learn and read "relevant sources" that comes outta someone's ass without actually confronting a real Muslim to know more about Islam. Be strong sis, and don't pay much attention to them.

And yet Christians get their panties in a twist when you call out some verses from the Bible and they call bs saying you're interpreting it "too literally".

I sort of stop caring about it. I'll use kpop as a way to explain my feelings. You know this past year this whole exo vs army thing is going on.

Everytime something happened for armies it was like, look exols at it again, they are so horrible, the worst fandom in the history of kpop blah blah blah.

 

They have a rivalry with us, and its to just generalize and hate on the whole fandom then to make an effort to understand their feelings or point of view. So you just dont bother to correct them or defend yourself. You realize it makes no difference what some dumb exol does in some part of the world, i am not responsible for her action, i dont need to defend or justify or apologize on her behalf to reduce their hatred. Its not going to happen anyway, If they want to hate they will use any excuse to hate and bash.

 

So its best to just leave these people alone and not let their words make you defensive or feel inferior.

 

If you've noticed those fans also pretend to be edgy intellectuals who are so above their rivals.

 

Im not saying that this situation is comparable to terrorist activities but i am using this example because i think you relate to this kind of feeling even if you are not a muslim, to give a frame of reference.

is there ever any argument about why in English Allah is sometimes referred as He? why the pronoun is allowed?

From what i know, in arabic the use of it and he are similar. So if the reference is to "it", that can also be translated as he. But the pronoun "she" is very definite. If you use she, it clearly refer to female. Since allah swt has no gender, you cannot use the word for she. Hence "he" is used to refer yo him. I hope i am making sense here. Edited by Sanaazc

I understand what you mean although if that's the case (the use in English just follows the use in arabic language) it still seems strange to me that in English "He" is the one used instead

Honestly its draining but theres nothing we can dounimpressed.png These people seem to have selective memory and forget the biggest victims of IS are acc Muslims. Isis is a problem for everyone and its both disturbing and disappointing to see some people blaming Islam and the whole Muslim population like?????? Its just so frustrating but what can you do.

shia muslims don't pray 3 times a day, but we combine our prayers (fajr), (dhurh and asr), (maghrib and isha). it's still 5 times a day :)
