Salam what is actualy a shia?

Walaikum salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

In the most general sense a Shia is a Muslim who believes in the wilayah of Ali ibn Abi Talib, and the Imamate of his progeny as dictates by the Messenger of Allah and the Qur’an.

Wilayah is mentioned within the Qur’an (5:55) and the Sunnah carries the Imamate of his progeny. As opposed to earthly leaders Shia follow the divinely chosen leaders and pious examples.

If more detail is needed feel free to ask.

insha’Allah you, your family, and your associates are in the best of health, iman, and security.

Please support this to spread awareness about the people in Amerli!

"The Shia Muslims of Amerli are starving and facing genocide. ISIS has them surrounded: The city has been under siege for over 60 days. These brave families have resisted the onslaught for very long and are now running out of food and water. It is only a matter of time before the city falls and a new gruesome massacre of innocent lives comes to light. Please help #SaveAmerli by signing the petition for swift intervention to break the blockade and save thousands of people trapped”.

You can support via twitter, facebook, and even tumblr! It’s really simple. PLEASE REBLOG TO SPREAD AWARENESS!

Condolences to all believers on the martyrdom of Imam Ja’far As-Sadiq AS (poisoned by the Abbasid caliph al Mansur ad-Dawaniqi). Such elevated qualities imbued in this magnanimous man. A great physicist, scientist, theologian, philosopher, astronomer, one who contributed tremendously in those aspects and the most patient and tolerant teacher with utmost humility of his time.

Shia LaBeouf Is Currently Doing Some Kind of Super Artsy Thing in Los Angeles

As you’ve probably heard by now, Actor, director, and mirror to our tortured souls, Shia LaBeouf is doing some sort of performance art thing in Los Angeles. 

The exhibition/performance/whatever is called #IAMSORRY and is being held at 7354 Beverly Blvd until Sunday.

I headed down to check it out. 

I arrived expecting a huge line, but there was none. Just one other guy and a security guard. The guard told me that I was the 75th person to see the exhibit, and that I had to go in alone, “because we don’t want anyone else to ruin your experience.”

After about five minutes of waiting, the security guy gave me the once over with a metal detector, and I was allowed inside. 

I ended up in a room with a bunch of objects laid out on a table. I managed to sneak a photo.

There was a ukelele, a bottle of Jack Daniels, a bowl containing print-outs of mean tweets about Shia, a bowl of Hershey’s Kisses, a bottle of Brut cologne, a copy of The Death Rayby Daniel Clowes, an Optimus Prime action figure, some pliers and a whip. 

A woman told me to choose an object. I picked up the bowl of mean tweets about Shia. 

A copy of the press release for whatever this thing is. 

Bowl in hand, the woman led me through a curtain and into a small room.

Shia was sitting at a small wooden table in the center of the space. He was wearing a suit and the “I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE" bag that he had on his head in Berlin.

The woman left, and it was just me and Shia. I didn’t sneak a photo of him, out of respect for his art (JK, I chickened out.)

I sat down opposite him. As far as I could tell, I wasn’t being filmed and nobody was listening in.

After sitting there for a few seconds with Shia staring at me in silence, I said, “So you’re not gonna talk, huh?” He didn’t respond.
