what are your thoughts on the movie belle? You said you won't see it, any particular reason? Just curious about your opinion
because i’m not interested in watching another white savior movie or another film that’s about black people but is really about white people.
and i’m not going to watch a movie about a white man and his beloved mixed daughter that he had after having sex with an enslaved black woman.
Lily Ghalichi legs
I have never thought about it in this context
that’s actually really, really creepy.
I once pointed this out to my mother and she just stared at me, in stunned silence for ages.
There will always be a girl who is less sober, less secure, with less friends walking in a darker part of town. I want her safe just as much as I want me safe.
they outlawed this move just because she was the only woman who could do it.
Surya Bonaly was infamous for (among other things) doing aone blade backflip in the 1998 Olympics, and is the ONLY figure skater who’s ever pulled that off. Not just the only woman, the only figure skater PERIOD. There’s like all ofthree Olympic-class male skaters who did backflips in their routines, and NONE of them could do it one blade.
But wait, there’s more.
Backflips were banned from the 1976 Olympics onward on the official justification that skating jumps are supposed to be landed on one blade, whereas backflips are landed on both blades. The unofficial justification was it was too dangerous, both to the athlete and to the rink — if you didn’t land it perfectly, you could not only break your ankle, but also punch THROUGH the ice surface.
Surya Bonaly was openly contemptuous of the figure skating judges, because they were a bunch of openly racist white men who always screwed her over by giving her lower scores than she deserved. That one-blade backflip was her ultimate FUCK YOU! to the Olympics judges, because she took an “illegal” backflip and made it legal by landing it on one blade. Pretty much DARING them to mark her down for being epic awesome and pulling a move that their precious coddled white girls didn’t have the guts to even think about.
They did, of course. White racism knows no bounds. But she utterly owned them with that move.
not only did she do a fucking backflip and land, she landed then went right into a triple loop. like holy fuck
Just like you, I am only human and I don’t run from making mistakes. Most of you here are young and beautiful and passionate about many things in life. and Yes, as you grow more and more mature, there will come a time that you seek companion. Not from a girl, but from the opposite sex. I’ve been there.
I won’t judge you and I understand and know how it feels like to be in love. MasyaAllah, love is a beautiful feeling and emotion that Allah has blessed us with. But sisters, do not allow yourself to be trapped in the emotions of love that will cause you to go further and further away from Allah. Know why? Because Allah is the owner of our hearts, and only HE should be kept in your heart and not anybody else. When our love for something or someone takes us out of the boundaries of Islam, that ‘love’ that may once have been pure, becomes polluted and tainted.
boyfriends are not allowed in Islam. It is forbidden. Having a relationship before marriage (boyfriend or girlfriend) is strictly forbidden. The Prophet, peace and blessings be upom him, is reported to have stated that “whenever two strangers of the opposite gender are alone with each other, Satan becomes the third one between them.” (At-Tirmidhi)”
There is no such thing as “dating” in Islam. When young Muslims are able to marry, they are encouraged to find a suitable partner for marriage, following strict rules of courtship, and always keeping the intention of marriage at the forefront of any interaction.
the heart and the mind are the most powerful organs that Allah SWT has blessed us with. Never ever give control of them to anyone besides Allah SWT. Otherwise, you will be hurt and hurt very badly. Take it from me. I am not proud to say this but I have done this before and It left me devastated, hurt, broken, depressed..just completely crazy. And now, it is my duty as your ‘big sister / kakak’ to tell you to not commit yourself in any relationship before marriage because my experience was excrutiating.
Janganlah adik-adik semua nak bercouple, couple tu haram di sisi Islam. When the time comes for you to get married, place your trust in Allah and know that your parents (as your guardians) have all the right to find a rightful spouse for you. In any instance that you like/have found someone, be sure to tell your parents too…and trust me, with the will of Allah, all things will fall into place. Orang melayu kata “Jodoh tak ke mana” =) Umar Al Khattab said it best - ” If something is meant to go elsewhere, it will never come your way, but if it is yours by destiny, from you it cannot flee”.
I’d also like to share with you this beautiful quote from Sis Yasmin Mogahed:
"Our completion comes from God and our relationship with Him. And yet, from the time we were little, we, as women, have been taught, that we will never reach completion until a man comes to complete us. Like Cinderella we were taught that we are helpless unless a prince comes to save us. Like Sleeping Beauty, we were told that our life doesn’t fully begin, until Prince Charming kisses us. But here’s the thing: no prince can complete you. And no knight can save you. Only God can."
So, SAY NO TO PRE-MARITAL RELATIONSHIPS. Allah knows BEST.
p/s: I agreed to an Arranged Marriage set by my parents =) I was engaged for 8 months, and my fiance (now husband) and I never went out, no dates, no late night out, no touching and heyy Alhamdulillahx10000, i am happily married now. true story <3
I love you all, for the sake of Allah, and this advise is all from my heart.
Your sister - Nadia.
we are the last generation whose baby photos weren’t taken on phones
I feel like I just walked in on something very private
