  2. Salaam, I am sorry to hear of your situation. I am afraid that we do not allow for such requests on these forums to protect everyone concerned. However, if you wish to disclose which country you are in, people from the relevant geographies may be able to suggest organisations close to you who could help.
  3. More Palestinians being arrested to make up for those being released ... https://twitter.com/sdng1950/status/1729600824148447644
  4. Roots. Watched in 1978, so not recently Highly recommended. This is one of the very few slavery-themed dramas I remember being produced, and I was worried that it was somehow culturally cancelled; so it's great to see it still being available. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Roots-The-Complete-Miniseries/dp/B00IB8S2EO/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

  6. A theory, but nonetheless.
  7. I don't think it is you per se, I think some media are better than others. I agree that reading is the best, but all of my day job is reading! So listening to books is something I do while walking or exercising.
  8. I have a very poor memory, but quite good at remembering quirky stuff. So from the biography of Catherine Medici (The Serpent Queen), I still remember the story about Henry III of France (her son), running away from Polish nobles chasing him because he had also become their King, but did not fancy the country. Something that helps with recollection etc. is adding to threads and blog posts as and when I come across relevant material on Audible. So, in my Prophet Yusuf post, I added material about the Bengal famine when I came across it in the Dalrymple book. I added material from the Donella Matthews book to the Riba thread.
  9. True. But any faith that has kneeling would find it hard to do so on wet pavement.
  10. Bristol Airport (UK) converts smoking shelter into Prayer Room uses symbol of Muslim person praying, but because the floor is open to rain, it can't be used by Muslims
  11. Significant development https://www.theguardian.com/business/2023/nov/23/openai-was-working-on-advanced-model-so-powerful-it-alarmed-staff
  12. I would not be surprised if he uses the 'mental health' defence or that he had a combination of medication x and y that caused behaviour issues.
  13. I'd expect this to be the topic of TikTok videos ... But it's the headline of a Guardian story https://www.theguardian.com/books/2023/nov/20/palestine-quran-islam-americans-tiktok?CMP=share_btn_tw
  14. Holocaust scholar refers to Gaza as a genocide
  15. There's a long piece in the FT today about public and government attitudes to the Israel/Palestine conflict. But before we get to that an example of why it's hard for the Palestinians to get a fair hearing.
  16. They are all very reasonable suggestions.
  17. The poster is asking about the following. Clicking their link will take you to imgur.com , an image hosting site. If you click the image below, it will enlarge it and not take you to a site external to Shiachat.
  18. Looks pretty cool https://hu.ma.ne Wearable tech, which does a lot of what existing products do, but with a more natural way of interacting. It also does a whole lot more.
