  1. His lectures this year are obviously provocatively titled, but having watched them all he does cite his sources more than he did many years ago; I think he balances a semi-academical approach with a subdued polemical tone (comparatively speaking). In the lecture posted by OP he talks about Christian influences on Muawiyah's thinking and behaviour, seeing as he kept around Christians who harboured animosity toward the Prophet and his household (عليه السلام) in his court. The common theme in all his lectures this year seems to be how the actions of certain individuals set historical precedence for people later on (i.e. the Umayyads) to undermine Prophetic authority, which in turn paved way for Karbala to happen. Such topics will inevitably arouse emotion and especially in the current political milieu is extremely difficult not to come across as polemical.
  2. I happened across this video where he discusses his image, for anyone interested.
  3. Assalamu alaykum, Do let me know if I can find this recitation in full online, or even just the name of the reciter. See the 9.10 min mark. Wasalam
  4. Movie can be viewed in HD here with good subtitles: https://www.insight-media.co/videos/muhammad-messenger-of-god-movie-english-subtitles/ If you right click the video you can display the URL and paste it into a Facebook video converter if you want to download it (1.3gb). Alternatively, you can follow the download link on the page but the file is around 5gbs.
  5. Salam, One would think if such references existed they would be included within the book --- that alone makes it spurious. I haven't found references outside the book either, nor has anyone else as far as I know. Those videos do seem to be based off the book, but again without references, which says a lot about the uploaders' concern for veracity. God knows best.
  6. The first half of Death Note was great, but went downhill after ep 25 IMO. Check out Kaiji (2 seasons) and Monster (74 eps) as well, and if you want to see the absolute best the medium has to offer, watch Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu (Legend of the Galactic Heroes [the original version, not the inferior remake]; 2 movies + 110 eps).
  7. Update. I finished the first 76 episodes (two seasons) in a week and a half. The rating? Must-watch-before-you-die-especially-if-you're-a-Muslim/10. Seriously, I didn't think there was a show like this out there, and it's the best thing I've ever seen. All episodes are available on Netflix. Worth getting a membership just for this!
  8. Bro I think you misunderstood. I meant a person that is a Shi'a Muslim who is studying History as their degree, the point being that, from my experience anyway, not many Muslims (let alone Shias) go into these areas May Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى grant us all success.
  9. Yes, nothing better than manly men shouting great things while hammering down a sword.
  10. Assalamu alaykum, I'm doing Ancient History myself, also in my final year. Nice to find a Shi'a History undergraduate; not many of us enter these areas I think, especially the Classics, which some of my Shi'a friends haven't even heard of.
  11. Diriliş: Ertuğrul (2014-ongoing). Can't believe I never found out about this sooner. Centres around Erturgrul, the father of the founder of the Ottoman Empire and part of the 13th-century (Muslim) Oghuz Turkic people. I'm only on season one (out of four) but loving it. No edgelord gimmicks (nudity, gratuitous violence) like you find in similar shows of its genre, and Islamically safe to watch. You can watch it free here with English subs: http://wlext.net/series/dirilis-ertugrul-season-1?server=openloadco&episode=001 And if your in doubt, I can guarantee you'll be hooked within the first five mins of episode one.
  12. "If you buy halal you are supporting Islamic jihad". lol really? I suppose these EDL muppets and right-wing Australian crackpots also think we shoot chickens in the head with Muzlamic ray guns according to the Sharon Law.
