  1. He's worrying me a lot these days.. I don't understand how he can confidently reject shariah law and also Islamic governance? He outright claims he is attempting to reform Islam or the religion from within. The reason this is deeply worrying me is that I've had to explain to some Muslims why he is wrong. They feel he is wrongly criticised and sympathise with him because of his garb and supposed authority. I really wish I could meet with him in person and just ask him straight up what his views really are.
  2. I have a big issue with people who brag about magnificent spiritual 'Arts' and what magnificent things they can do, yet conveniently provide no sources or methods used beyond what their uncle/gramps did in the Vietnam war or Rawal Pindi because you know? *taps nose* "Its a secret!" "You're not ready!" "Only the cool kids!" 20000000000 Rupees later and countless hours of following such a person, you might, perhaps you know, crack the secret and find out that that hidden Kitab was just a recipe for fried chicken?
  3. After heavily scrutinising (respectfully) the religion of Islam, the Quran and its origin, the works and lives of the prophet and the AhlulBayt. I have come to love and know them as "spiritually" significant figures in human history that represent to me embodiments of virtues. I mean there is a profoundly otherworldly or divine quality to them and their actions.Read Nahjul Balagha, now remind yourself that this is a 7th-century work. These lot didn't have google back then or a 21st-century education system. Same goes for the Quran which openly invites us to ponder upon it and its signs.With the life of our imams, we see the works of a man either well beyond his time or spiritually connected to the divine, or both? By really assessing these holy figures and critically analysing their intentions behind their acts, we start to see something profoundly spiritual.From doing all this, naturally, the belief in an afterlife begins to form. The point being, we must ask ourselves what do these holy people warn us and make us aware of? the day of judgement and the afterlife. The timing of Islam was perfect.The birth of the prophet and each and every person that was ripe at that time for the development of Islam. From Hazrat Hamza to Khadija to Imam Ali and the Negus of Ethiopia. Each and every variable was ripe for the moment and out of that unknown desert sprang out the religion of Islam against all odds in a merciless world. Also before Islam we see many other prophets sent by this mysterious "Abrahamic God" and there is much to reflect upon. “We will show them Our Signs in the universe, and in their own selves, until it becomes manifest to them that this (the Quran) is the truth” [Fussilat 41:53]. *I'd like to note that if I was a Sunni I wouldn't be a Muslim, it just wouldn't cut it for me, the Ahlulbayt clarify and make clear things for me that are rather questionable. Through words and actions.*
  4. I have always imagined, that people would immediately gather under their own political or religious groups.Even leftists and rightwingers. The thing that scares me is the fact that ISIS empathisers and supporters will organise fast and form their own militias most likely. They are already looking for a reason and opportunity to start a caliphate in the UK and start exterminating people. Imagine defending a settlement, and then a suicide truck just blows the crap out of your defences or your block of the city. If you don't have some form of superiority, there's not much you can do other than be martyred. It's the 3rd world version of an airstrike and it works.These people are like orcs, they breed fast and thrive in chaos. They also have a lot of valuable knowledge I mean have any of you seen the home made artillery nicknamed hell cannons? Whose to say one of these won't pop up in the streets? They build the artillery shells from propane tanks. I know it's kinda cringe as I have no military experience and am essentially an armchair warrior who would die from obesity but I'm just trying to imagine the worst case scenarios, and seeing footage from Syria we have an example urban warfare and the sort of barbaric ingenuity that arises from the ruins of civilisation.
  5. Speaking of Sarajevo you can see here the improvised weapons that were made. The image with the shotgun shell isn't from Sarajevo but its an example of how easy it is to actually make improvised shotguns. You simply need a pin to hit the shell and ensure the pipe does not explode in your face. These improvised weapons are ideal for ammunition that is of lower calibres. Also smooth bore weapons are easiest to make, rifling is the hard part imo. The real issue is finding ammunition or producing it, however I believe it would take like a century or longer to waste all the ammunition that has already been produced after a complete technological blackout.You'd still find people busting out military grade weapons a hundred years later it would just be really coveted and Abdi's Ak47 would make him the coolest kid in town. If you live in the states you already would have an armoury that your family would inherit, the issue is living in the UK, your either lucky enough to own a farm and hunting rifle or shotgun or you have to buy a crossbow and learn to use it really well and be able to repair it. Anyway if it came down to it, we could just go back to black powder weaponry but I highly doubt we would do that unless it were for hunting or simply making people poop themselves from the noise and even then the pneumatic rifles like the Girardoni air rifle used in 1779 would be a better choice, or a crossbow or bow.
  6. You see with the case of Greek philosophers it is understandable, many of them were very virtuous men who lived a life in pursuit of knowledge and had placed much value on morality and ethics. All this whilst living in the ancient world, which was a really an ideal time for lustful orgies and murder and throwing babies into fires and stuff. Instead, they lived away from the sinners and pursued a life dedicated to knowledge and wisdom. Some of them would walk miles just to learn and for example in some cases work at night doing hard labour and teach during the day. A lot of Arab scholars studied the works of the Greek sages. The same can be said for many other historical figures from different parts of the world like India or China. It is all speculation, but the point is that there were good people and truth seekers even in ages of complete ignorance. This is very different from Zeus the rapist and the magical deity with no historical record of having existed.
  7. I am having a lot of trouble formatting it sorry.
  8. I reach similar states through meditation, it's as if the body falls away and all that is left is pure beingness, it feels incredible and is a great way to have some shutdown time, time away from simply existing as an ego. This is the aspect of meditation I like when you simply polish the mirror of the mind until it reflects the universe or calm the waves of the mind down until you can see the reflection of your true self in its surface. It is important to see the stream of thoughts we have and how they are an endless caravan demanding our attention. In eastern thought, they refer to it as monkeys swinging from tree to tree. In Imam Khomeini's book Adab as-Salat, he refers to it as a bird flitting from tree to tree. My biggest struggle is back posture, though it's a skill the more you practice it the longer you can do it and the faster you can enter the state. After meditating I am very calm, not easily excited and just think with clarity and a sense of peace and focus. Most of all, we can all benefit from relaxed deep breathing.
  9. Running away can be dangerous, especially for a young lady. If the physical violence escalates or he increases the amount he hits you then seek help from an organisation that helps victims of child abuse, they can give you advice or even counselling. This is better than simply running away or killing yourself as they can help you find shelter and safety and have experience.
  10. Migraines and PTSD but the research is ongoing. Medical use focuses on micro dosing. Recreational use is obviously haram, and I'm not here to justify the use of certain substances within medicine to you and neither did I propose growing them. I want my tribe of princes in Bel air to be able to operate heavy machinery and fend off attacks successfully. Interesting point, though, where I am from, resin from the poppy aka opium is used as a painkiller and given to babies when mixed with milk.You'd bet I'd want a few bottles of that stuff and it's seeds in a seed bank if I lived in a climate suitable for it. This is the apocalypse mate, good luck to you if you have access to pharmaceutical grade medicines which you stockpiled. I know they will run out quick, and the Carltons Apothecary is going to be bringing in all the Dajjali denars. Let us not derail the thread, please anyone contribute specifics, maybe if anyone has plans for a locust farm in order to make burgers from them or are they haram?
  11. If I get the time I might make a pdf. I will work on producing the tekkers. Though it will take me a long time like a month or more. I could point to other people's guides but they all have bits and bobs of useful material scattered everywhere. At least we can specialise in different fields and gather knowledge. The real challenge is putting all the different aspects and methods into a concise format. SHTF is the term you want to google for anything else. Thankfully a lot of thought has been applied to the problem already, however, a lot of it is U.S centric. We don't have the real estate nor access to many things people in the U.S have. We need to tone it down to crossbows and growing food in small allotments or under the floor boards lol, unless you earning them big stacks like Souljah boy.
  12. I would advise the "Naqshbandi brothers": To focus on learning skills, skills that will produce food in the long run or medicine. Yeh, basically I have decent mycology skills, like growing mushrooms on different substrates and how to prepare and safely store spores, there are so many different types of mushrooms and a lot of medicinal mushrooms can be grown on wood chips or sawdust. Just by controlling the conditions fungi's can produce a lot of fruit to feed you in the long run.I'd scream if somebody threw away a good bag of sawdust or compost in the apocalypse. I would at least be able to feed people if I am given the right tools, though having a spore bank along with the seed bank would help greatly. Antibiotics can be created like penicillin if you study fungi and have stuff like agar jellies and Petri dishes.I wouldn't recommend doing it without experience and in-depth practice and study or you might kill yourself or someone else. Don't get me wrong this isn't rich man science this is ghetto science that can be applied out in the slums, this is science based on materials one can procure like microporous tape, duct tape, plastic boxes. You also need to know all your machines and tools intimately, in order to be able to repair them. I have also thought about insect farms and being able to blend them into burgers or something but as haram, as it is, I'm sure it is better than starving to death. The main benefit is the fact they subsist off so little, yet produce a lot more protein than say a cow. Overall though I expect to be dead if the poop hits the fan my best advice is to go to the Afghani/Pak border mountains, hide somewhere and squat until the world chills out.
  13. This reminds me of a thread back in the days of SC where two brothers said they used to practice sword fighting in the garden in order to prepare for the coming of the Mahdi. Preparing for the 12th imam is entirely spiritual as I completely doubt his success or arrival would be based on what meagre material offerings we can provide on the day. We need to pave the way mentally and spiritually or else we will be smited along with the kuffar. I am expecting supernatural help in the war. As for surviving UNTIL he comes, a bomb shelter with stockpile of food and ammunitions would help greatly IF poop hits the fan. Why does this all remind me of the terminator movies?
