Never has there been a leader like Ali
Nor a giver like Hassan
There never will be a martyr like Hossein
No reviver like Zain ul Abideen
No advancer like Baqir
No teacher like Jafar
No faith like that of Musa al Kazim
Never a miracle worker like Reza
The world will never see a truth like Taqi
Neither a right like Naqi
We regret the struggle of Hassan al Askari
An there is no hope alike to the hope for Imam Mahdi
A major frustration of mine is watching very influential Muslim bloggers repost pictures where a woman’s honour is degraded, and rightfully they call it out, shame the offender, and protect the woman.
Yet when the Shi’a community on tumblr was virulently attacked, women are called sexual slurs and and both men and women are hurled terms that are, in the endgame, violent and physically threatening to one’s personal safety, these same Muslim bloggers didn’t say a thing.
I see your bias, I see your privilege, I see your hypocrisy. You’re on notice.
