This guy climbed Mount Everest just so he could hold up the Qur’an to show that it’s higher than everything else in the world.

He is Farouq AlZouman, and yes we are proud.

On a serious note though people who idolize serial killers honestly disgust me. Especially when white men who are convicted rapists and murderers are celebrated by wannabe edgy fucks for their “beautifully twisted minds” who wax philosophically about how they shouldn’t be in jail because they’re just poor sensitive lambs lost in society’s evil machine… while black men on minor drug charges rot in jail and no one blinks an eye……

Thank you for all your beautiful prayers.

"The dua of a Muslim for his brother (in Islam) in his absence is readily accepted; an angel is appointed to his side, whenever he makes a beneficial dua for his brother the appointed angel says ‘Ameen, and may you also be blessed with the same’" Sahih Muslim

You can’t just start the clock on 9/11 and forget 50 years of unjust oppressive Western foreign policies in the Middle East.

Thank God someone finally said this. I’m so sick of stating that Western intervention and invasion of other countries fuels terrorism only for people to respond 'They did 9/11 first!' 

In 1953 the UK & the US staged a coup of the democratically elected leader of Iran and installed a dictator who was more to their liking. Today the US continues to support brutal dictators (such as in Saudi Arabia) where it suits them to do so. Palestine has been occupied for decades. The list of Western imperial foreign policies over the past decades could go on and on.

9/11 was not only only a result religious extremism and it certainly was not because 'they hate our freedoms.' Terrorism is often primarily politically motivated and anyone who is serious about preventing it had better take some fucking notice of this fact.

I always loved to go to Androon Shehr. I remember my nano used to live there, homes there had their roofs connected and we kids would skip those roofs and would go as far as we could. Those were the days!

Well, because I obviously stopped listening to music completely during Ramadan.. so I feel ashamed for starting again just because Ramadan ended, you know? :p

I’ve stopped listening to music since Ramadan…

I tried to listen to a song a few days ago, but after a few seconds I just felt ashamed and uncomfortable (btw the lyrics weren’t bad or anything) so I turned it off immediately. wow!

Some Asians have no logic. They want a daughter-in-law who has a degree in medicine but stays at home and cooks curries.
