Assalaam alaikum, Brothers, I am not Shia. I have not slandered anyone. You need to respond with knowledge and not emotion. I have not taken any confrontational stance. I simply asked a question as to why there is a lack of discussions regarding Ali (ra) and you guys go off the deep end. You call me a fool and state and tell me you try to respect me. Way to go brothers. Has it not occurred to you that instead of being defensive you could be proactive. You demand an apology for me asking a question? Is this really the way of the Prophet, swas? You can second or third or whatever you want. The fact still remains that there is little light that is shed upon Ali (ra). Instead of getting upset if you have knowledge share it. Why attack a sister who simply asked a question? I have done my share of research. That is why I posed the question. Why would I describe the words of Ali (ra) as pearls of wisdom if I had not digested the words. And brothers..who are you to demand anything from me in terms of my faith. I am your sister in faith. Please do not call me a liar as I am not one. I pray that Allah subhana wa talla sheds peace upon you.
