May Allah give us:

1. faith in Him

2. strength to carry out His commands

3. patience to deal with those who get in the way, including our own self/nafs

4. kindness with the down-trodden, orphaned, poor, and tired ones 

and 5., wisdom to discern between our will and His.

What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?

aconissa answered:

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.

Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society 

BOYCOTT IT!!!

It’s interesting to see how many people are in support of Palestine recently. It seems like the support for the oppressed flares up every time the conflict and oppression gets really bad..not that there is anything wrong with this, I just feel like the volume and intensity of these voices should be constant and not just at times like this. 

May God protect the people of Gaza and remove His mercy from those who injure and persecute them.
