  1. Not a terrorist. Just a woman driver. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/jun/25/six-injured-after-car-hits-crowd-celebrating-eid-in-newcastle
  2. It's a documentary called 'Decadence and Downfall'. It's about the party that the Shah of Iran threw for the world's leaders.
  3. Umm. It's a national Israeli newspaper.
  4. ^ According to the FB page: https://www.facebook.com/fxsignals2017/ Highflyer was promoting that system for some months on SC, I think there is an onus on him to explain what the performance was of the old system, it seems a bit scammy to simply shut it down and start a new one. What does 'more tuned' mean anyway? Prior to beware_of_conmen's post being approved, I checked the links and it does seem as if highflyer has some serious questions to answer. It seems as if the handle he was using on those other forex forums has been banned and there are comments that the system he was using was relying on subscriptions as a means of making money rather than the trading activity itself.
  5. What we don't know is whether or not your getting a D now affects your room for manoeuvre in the future. If it does, then your parents are right to be very upset, if it doesn't you could offer them a plan of action to remedy the situation. As a parent myself, I know it is hard to communicate certain issues with kids. I have found the following clip to be very useful (it comes from a movie that I don't recommend for unIslamic content). I think sometimes it is more meaningful for advice to come from the head of a Mexican drugs cartel than a parent and certainly I have played this clip very many times to my daughter:

  7. Shrines represent social space. They are where vast numbers of people go to socialise, pray, meditate and so on. They are political and social symbols as well as religious ones. They are national monuments, places of worship and tourist attractions all rolled into one. Taking into account all the functions that they serve, for the vast numbers they cater to, the cost of decorating them is very small indeed.
  8. Reconceptualising time:
  9. Unless it's an 'Islamist' bombing.

  11. The video has them as well.

  14. The only such observation I have come across in the MSM. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/may/27/observer-view-donald-trump-middle-east-iran
  15. One of the reasons why I think this thread is of value on Shiachat is because it allows us to demonstrate that there are very high quality and entertaining movies that observant Muslims can watch while making few or no compromises. Obviously, we all have different tolerances and while the issues may be better debated in another thread, I wonder in the case of movies where the objectionable scenes are very limited and short whether it would be acceptable to tell momins when such scenes occur, so that they can avoid them. There are plenty of movies I've really wanted to recommend here and in the case of one, it was a split-second shot which killed it. Anyway here's one which seems fine in all respects, haven't watched it yet, but it's on Amazon Prime so it's free!:
