    You dont have a source to back up your claim ?? Oh dear, am I expected to simply believe you when you could have been misinformed and you leave me with no way of checking the validation of what you say. Im a fairly welly educated man so please do not insult my intelligence..You have offended me, this i didnt expect when coming here ?
    Have you not got anything better to do than troll a No-debating thread?
    Intelligence is not known by mere self-proclamation. Intelligence is known by one's understanding of a matter and response to a situation.

    Enjoy the rest of your day

    “Truly in the heart there is a void that can not be removed except with the company of Allah. And in it there is a sadness that can not be removed except with the happiness of knowing Allah and being true to Him. And in it there is an emptiness that can not be filled except with love for Him and by turning to Him and always remembering Him And if a person were given all of the world and what is in it, it would not fill this emptiness.”

    "I found myself in trouble, and so I made Du’aa consistently, all the while requesting relief and comfort. The response to my Du’aa seemed to be delayed, and so my soul became disturbed and worried. However, I rebuked it saying, “Woe unto you; look attentively at yourself, are you the one possessed or are you the possessor? Are you the one that is controlled or are you the controller? Are you not aware that this world is the abode of tests for you?"

    A man said to al-Hasan al-Basri (رحمه الله):

    ‘The people sit around you so that they may find fault with you!’ So he said, ‘Indeed, I encouraged my soul to aspire for Paradise so it aspired for it. Then I encouraged it to aspire for salvation from Hellfire and so it aspired for it. Then I encouraged it to aspire for salvation from the people, but I didn’t find a way to that. Indeed the people were not pleased with their Creator although He provides for them, so how can they be pleased with another creation like themselves?’

    Sorry, re-read and saw it was another user (Think People). You responded to a question which quoted that so whilst skim reading, I thought it was you.

    I...am no longer a student. I finished college but don't go to Uni because I don't know what subject I'd study. Plus...fees.

    What I meant in terms of productivity is generally feeling useful. I'm trying to get a job so I'm planning to start a couple of applications. I've started one already and aim to submit it by tomorrow evening at the latest, In sha Allah.

    Also, I wish to start up (and maintain) my own business before 2020, In sha Allah. I have a couple of ideas. I'm doing extensive research on one idea for now.
    Oh I see. It's good that you're motivated and still pursuing something else. May Allah put barakah in your business for you.

    Np 😊 and so sad to hear that, inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un. Then they say they are"helping out" yeah right, people just believe the ones in power unfortunately. This is our world now, corrupt. May Allah bring justice to all very soon. Ameen.


    Ameen.

    rafidhi (rejectors) is a rather insulting definition. It is frequently used by sunnis against shias

    IMHO , it is not a good idea to use it here - unless you want to launch a shia/sunni dispute

    It's not, hence I used it. I think you've been reading too much Wikipedia.

    Thanks for your concern. I'm sure the anti-Islam crew has the best interests of the isoc at heart.

    Edit - best

    Some take it as offensive; some wear it as a badge of pride including prominent Shia figures like Amar Nakshawani, and historically Shia have accepted it as a label for themselves. It is only recently that some people start to take offence to it. Calling one a rejector is an accurate description of their beliefs; you could argue it is like using the word "negro" which simply means 'black' but is still considered offensive, but the term Rafidha and Negro are not on the same level, as one has historically been used by both Sunni and Shia in both good and bad ways, whereas the other has only really been used as a derogatory term or to strip the identity or humanity of black people, only later being adopted by blacks to lightly address each other in limited contexts and occasions.

    Quite obvious IFL intended to use it in a derogatory&offensive manner
