  1. Say [that Allah declares,] ‘O My servants who have committed excesses against their own souls, do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed Allah will forgive all sins. Indeed He is the All-forgiving, the All-merciful. Holy Quran 39:53
  2. Youtube has rules. Videos that violate their rules will be removed, including sexual content, violent or repulsive content, hate speech or abusive content, dangerous acts, child abuse. etc. Some youtube videos have links to spam in their description, which means the video was uploaded with the intention to seek money for the owner of the channel.
  3. That's literally what everyone learns on Day 1 in school. Why are you debating this topic when you don't know the basics? The 20th century settled this question already. There's not much more to discuss. Sorry you're late to the party.
  4. Many are conservative on social issues, but without the excess alarmism and paranoia. That leads into Shapiro territory. "Moderate" is a useless term unless the spectrum is defined. All economies are "mixed", and always have been. There's been no pure system of anything. Individual perception of work has little bearing on overall macroeconomics. Also, some of the most important jobs of human value yield scant economic "benefit", while useless jobs like hedge fund managers make millions. I didn't say you were a complete mirror of them. Only in some sentiments. Also, some po
  5. Interfaith dialogue is important, but difficult. There's two pendulum swinging tendencies. One is overly combative, and the other is fear of challenge and critical dialogue. People have to believe in respect, frankness, humility, and agree purely on the seeking of truth, putting personal egos, agendas, and tribal affiliations aside. Both sides have to approach the conversation in good faith. But as you can see, there's a million ways it can break down or be compromised, some by malice, but often by misunderstandings.
  6. Interesting that Muslims can digest both "left wing" and "right wing" content, and find personal ideological validation in both of them. Most of the points raised here are straight from YouTube pundits or mass media. @Abdul-Hadi's points especially sound like an episode of Ben Shapiro or a segment on Fox News.
  7. BLM is a general slogan used by many. Any group that claims the name doesn't speak for everyone who uses the slogan.
  8. Non-Muslims in the West were told about the "72 virgins" so much, they must think this obscurantism is an essential part of Islam. Out of all the things about Islam to know about, this is what they recollect the most about? The power of media.
  9. I'm sure this is the most accurate, and would apply to any other profession as well.
  10. I'm guessing most of the members who selected "All Lives Matter" are not American, don't understand the American context of the term, or realize its giant linguistic loophole of dehumanization. Black people are being disproportionately targeted by the criminal justice system, and to bring attention to that, it's essential that the phrase "Black Lives" exists. Not all lives are at equal risk, which is what "All Lives Matter" implies. It's downplaying the factor of race which exists, unless somebody denies this (which includes denying statistics). It's contradictory, but "all" doesn'
  11. Do what they do in workplaces. Portion food in different containers, with a labeled note saying who's it is. Would he eat food with your name on it?

  13. You're beating around the bush again. I'm not interested in your dissertation on human rights or your cosmic definition of "sick". I'm only interested in what's best for public health and people not getting sick. Whatever measures need to be taken. God give us strength.
  14. Be "busy" and preoccupied somewhere else during those 15 minutes. Use that time to do some working, and make it look like you can't be disturbed.
