  1. In the middle of one of my Muharram lectures a few years ago as I was making some point, I made a quick side remark about how Khalid b. Walid was a successful war strategist during the conquests. That is all I said and moved on with the rest of my talk. After the lecture, one of the organizers quickly came up and whispered in my ear to “clear up the point about Khalid b. Walid.” I was confused and had already forgotten what exactly I had said about Khalid b. Walid as he was not even remotely the subject of the lecture and I wasn’t sure what I had said that needed clarification? They said I had
  2. I'm not sure, I hadn't come across that word before, this is the full entry: عَتِيقٌ عَتِيقٌ A horse that precedes, outstrips, or outgoes; as alsoعَاتِقٌ↓; or this signifies a horse that precedes, and becomes safe, or secure; (TA; [see 1, first and second sentences;]) or that precedes, outstrips, or outgoes, the [other] horses: (Mṣb:) and the former, a generous, or an excellent, horse: (Mṣb, TA:) or a horse swift and excellent; or that excites admiration by his generousness or excellence; syn. رَائِعٌ: (Ṣ, Mgh, O, TA:) pl. عِتَاقٌ: (Ṣ, O, Mṣb:) عَتِيقَةٌ applied to a young she-came
  3. Salam, The text indicates that some of them were slaves, from Lane's Lexicon: Root: عتق - Entry: عَتِيقٌ―Signification: A4 And, applied to a slave, signifying Freed from slavery, or emancipated
  4. You really have to love the progressives, such nice people.
  5. As long as he doesn't say mean things, the Muslims who support him won't really care, they know what his record is like but they still prayed to God that he would get elected, and then probably fasted to give thanks after his victory.
  6. Generally you can't help but not look because they look so weird (to put it mildly) but after one look generally you don't want a second.
  7. Lahum(a) means for them two Lakum(a) means for you two Takun(a) wouldn't appear on its own like that, the noun has been dropped from the end (I could be wrong) but it is the dual past or future form of 'to be' كان يكون
  8. The Turkish flat bread pide is really nice
  9. Salam, I don't know about generally but it is sunna to rest on your left thigh with your feet behind you when eating - which is logical because you don't want your feet close to the food.
  10. My main concern is that it makes people apply weird logic that they then broadly apply to their religious practices in general. I don't actually think that there are any individual issues with most of these practices, the issue is how people promote and then defend them - and as we have seen in recent years, things have just snow balled to the extent that there are nearly too many issues to address. Also the promoters of these have gone from claiming that these are cultural practices to claiming that they are religious practices backed up by the Qur'an and the sunna.
  11. Prove that this has been a practice for 1400 years, interested to see your answer.
  12. Why do people not try and find out what the Prophet (s) used to have on his flag or what was on the flag that was used at the battle of Karbala'? If people really want to link it back the ma'sumeen they should go down that road. In my family they keep flags that say 'ya ghazi 'Abbas' (complete with the little hand symbol on top) and revere it as if it is holy. It isn't healthy behaviour.
  13. Well sleep is the brother of death as is stated in a narration. The ancient Greeks were also of that opinion
  14. Che (Persian: چ) is a 2014 Iranian biographical war film directed by Ebrahim Hatamikia. Che depicts 48 hours of Mostafa Chamran's life, who was then defense minister of Iran. On August 16 and 17, 1979 he was sent by Ayatollah Khomeini to command several military operations in the civil war in the Kordestan region which was besieged by anti-revolutionary forces.[1][2] The film was submitted to the 32nd Fajr International Film Festival.[2] and won two Crystal Simorghs in the fields of best editing and best visual effects.[3][4] In addition to Chamran the film is also about Asghar Vesali who was
