@hameedeh and @IbnSina the best solution is to shred the paper and recycle it. 

The recycling center (that I go to) does not allow shredded paper. When they want to process the paper, small shredded strips or confetti shredded paper flies in the air and becomes a problem.

For anyone who doubts clear hadith propaganda aimed against the banu-hashim, and Ali a.s in particular. The people fabricating the below didn't think to make it convincing:

 

 

Samurah b. Jundub told that a man said:
Messenger of Allah (ﷺ)! I saw (in a dream) that a bucket was hung from the sky. Abu Bakr came, caught hold of both ends of its wooden handle, and drank a little of it. Next came ‘Umar who caught hold of both ends of its wooden handle and drank of it to his fill. Next came ‘Uthman who caught hold of both ends of its handle and drank of it to his fill. Next came ‘All. He caught hold of both ends of its handle, but it became upset and some (water) from it was sprinkled on him.
[abu dawud]
 
Muhammad b. al-Hanafiyyah said:
I said to my father[ali ibn abi talib a.s]: Which of the people after the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) is best? He replied: Abu Bakr. I then asked: Who comes next? He said: ‘Umar. I was then afraid of asking him who came next, and he might mention ‘Uthman, so I said: You came next, O my father? He said: I am only a man among the Muslims.
Abu-dawud [sahih] - Al Albani
 
Ibn ‘Umar said:
We used to say in the times of the Prophet (ﷺ): We do not compare anyone with Abu Bakr. ’Umar came next and then ‘Uthman. We then would leave (rest of) the companions of the Prophet (ﷺ) without treating any as superior to other.
 Abu Dawud [sahih] Al-Albani
^ Whoever fabricated this made a massive error.
 
 
Uthman ibn Affan, did not stay at Hunayn [he fled and i am not being sectarian], was not the hero of badr [didn't participate], did not kill amr ibn abdiwud, was not the hero of khaybar, did not lift the gate, took the banner, was part of mubahila, was purified in the cloak...the list is almost endless! Other than fabricated praise coming later, there is little the third caliph has done that can  come near Ali ibn abi talib a.s - and i say this not to be abusive, but to question how on earth Ali a.s was just regarded ordinary, when doing feat, after feat! He must have had clear distinction [and he did]. To bring Ali a.s lower, you merely have to raise the others above him.

Look at the hatred of Ali a.s. Further proof of motives to try to elevate the first three over him.

Narrated Safinah:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said: The Caliphate of Prophecy will last thirty years; then Allah will give the Kingdom of His Kingdom to anyone He wills. Sa'id told that Safinah said to him: Calculate Abu Bakr's caliphate as two years, 'Umar's as ten, 'Uthman's as twelve and 'Ali so and so. Sa'id said: I said to Safinah: They conceive that 'Ali was not a caliph. He replied: The buttocks of Marwan told a lie.

[hasan sahih] [Abu Dawud]

I have now gone from 10th to the 7th highest SC reputation of all time, recently surpassing @starlight, @Darth Vader, and @Ruq

As a modest man, I honestly didn't believe it was worth mentioning, but I felt compelled to do so, at the behest of the amazing people on this forum, who would be disappointed if I didn't. I owe it to them. 

Many factors exist for this phenomenal rise, but above all, it's just my great connection with the people. The comforting impulse to like and support my contributions (which I prefer to call "gifts") is tremendous and awe inspiring. The emotion is raw. 

The key is to give people what they need, then go beyond that. Before I post, I ask myself, "Would I want to read that myself"? Every time, the answer is affirmative, and my instincts do not fail me. And it is precisely that confidence that gives me the edge, time and time again.

It's magnetic, it's electric, but overall it's just pure beauty. A warm sunset on a nice summer evening. 

God bless you my friends.

In my eyes, this is one of the best Seerah works on the life of the Prophet Muhammed [saw] and the decades after his death, and it is pretty concise and short whilst having a very good level of analysis and depth.

https://www.al-islam.org/restatement-history-islam-and-muslims-sayyid-ali-ashgar-razwy

I believe as Shaykh Hamzah Yusuf states, it is ideal to read the Seerah once a year, so you really get familiar with the names, places, and chronology of events. Additionally there are several lessons to be learnt, which can not merely be learnt through only one reading of it.

If you follow Muhammed [saw] and have the mental capacity, time, physical means, and ability to read his seerah but have not done so, really consider doing it, because it is a [true] story more epic and profound than any you can read in a novel. So before you read that Stephen King novel, pick up a reliable seerah. A lover of Ali a.s would never neglect the seerah of his superior and master, Muhammed [saw].

@uponthesunnah dont put hadiths in the thoughts thread, make another thread and post your findings there

Forgive me, i felt that i did not want to create too many threads but only wanted to relay random research and thoughts i had, but perhaps i might do it on a blog.
