^ Good thing you live in the UK...if you lived here the Clinton camp would turn Wavey into a rug.

4d6161fd.gif Their demise would be abrupt and exceptionally grim if so much as one of Waveys pixels was tampered with. He's a bear sans frontieres btw, so he may find a way to appropriate a vote.

I'm voting for Stein. Does that cancel out @notme?

I think so, Stein seems a bit extreme for my taste so I am not voting for her.

I voted for Stein last time because of the way she was handcuffed to a chair by police and l 'knew' Ob would win my state.

Hmmmm, "Arm Bears"  This would make my old hunting trips more interesting.

So instead of a jar of grape jelly as bait l could more inexpensively sing. Then all them armed bears would come out of the woods trying to see who was 'disturbing the peace'.

Just got Shaykh Rizwan Arastu's english translation and commentary of Vol. 1 of Kitab al-Kafi shipped across half the country to my library. So pumped to get started reading.

If anyone in Canada's wants to know how, PM me. @Al-Hassan- interested?

@Shaykh Patience101

Thank you for the suggestion but no I am not feeling it at all, they do not put me in the mood to lift heavy things. Especially that third video with that guy who looks like he just stepped out from carving shawarma at his babas restaurant, waving his machete around acting dangerous having the same muscle mass as a chubby toddler lol...

@Vestige

That video makes me sad if anything :/

@Chaotic Muslem

Hmm I dont know I didnt understand a single word of course but it sounds like some countries national anthem or something like that but the melody was almost too "arabic wedding like".

 

Anyways, your success in weight lifting is very dependent on how much pain you can withstand and one of the best methods for tackling pain is anger so if i hear something that wakes anger then that would make me careless of pain to a greater degree.

Also this german language really fits that industrial metal and iron atmosphere of a gym. I would link what I mean but it would not be allowed. And this arabic language, I do not like it so much or any other of the semitic languages for that matter, it does not sound so well in my opinion, just some times dependent on who speaks it, also there are so many different types of arabic but I love Fusha, it sounds most beautiful.

Never mind, I take it back. Jill Stein would be a pretty good option, her platform fits my values. 

I don't know about the Green Party in America, but aren't they just a bunch of tree huggers?

That, among other things. But what's wrong with hugging trees?

They are anti-Zionist which is why they appeal to me and another thing, they not tree huggers, they are merely cleaning and protecting what Allah (swt) has created. Again, your comment is as usual, really ignorant and lacking in akhlaq.

I find this amusing. I didn't even insult them, I was asking a question, whether they're huggers or not. I'm starting to think it is you who lacks akhlaq by continuing to accuse others.

They are not anti-Zionist, because they believe that the State of Israel should exist. There's no way around the defintion.

Cleaning and protecting what Allah has created? Allah never said it is haram to build cities. If a piece of land is under the authority of the State or it is a private property, there is no right for people to come and stop them from building what they want.

No, I am sorry but it is definitely you who lacks the akhlaq, from what I've seen of you,  you always seem to make unfair judgments on others. You were warned by Starlight in the chat room not too long ago  about calling people's conversations "useless". I could bring past examples of your behavior but I won't. This isn't the thread to do so.

Obviously, you never read this: "US policy regarding Israel and Palestine must be revised to prioritize international law, peace and human rights for all people, no matter their religion or nationality. End US policies that have supported the worst tendencies of the Israeli government in its treatment of the people of Palestine." From Jill Stein's platform, the leading Green Party candidate in the election.  The Green Party in America is mostly people who would normally be described as Independents in the ballot and it is the only party that I am aware of that doesn't have Zionist tendencies unlike the other parties do.  Please don't try to be an expert on American politics, sounds harsh but you would be better off not saying anything at all.

I never said anything about cities being haram, bro. I merely that it is a sin to behave irresponsibly and destroy what Allah (swt) has created when He has commanded of us to be vicegerents on the Earth and it's creatures. It is haram to pollute the land and waters knowing that it will harm the people for generations to come while they remain unaware of the dangers. It is also a sin to play God and genetically alter the crops and mosquitoes like the way Monsanto and their ilk has. Whether a land is under the authority of the State or private property is irrelevant and beside the point when all the land belongs to Allah (swt ) and when we are disobeying Him by being heedlessly destructive and taking money as an idol as well endangering the people and society as a whole. It is a test from Allah (swt)  and we are failing miserably...

Wow. What a pathetic comment.

You failed to back up your original comment where you attempted to "prove" a lack of akhlaq in my original post to you. So you tried to save yourself the embarrassment by telling the world about a "previous issue" inside of the chatroom which happened a while ago. How pathetic is that? Can you prove to me where I lacked akhlaq in my original post to you? Or are you simply someone who likes to spew out the word "akhlaq" for no real reason? 

All I asked is whether they are a bunch of tree huggers or not, I never accused them of being such, I asked YOU a question. Get that through your head.

I have read that quote about the Green Party. That does not prove Anti-Zionism, that proves an anti-Israeli stance. An anti-Zionist stance would be to believe Israel has NO RIGHT to exist. Once you bring me proof that the Green Party supports such a stance, I will then admit to you they are anti-Zionist. Please don't try to act like an expert on terminology, I'm not trying to be harsh on you, but it's best you search up what terms mean before you use them incorrectly.

No one supports pollution, I don't know how you got that from my statement. Since when did being against tree hugging become being pro-pollution?

Allah has given humans many rights and freedoms to do certain things in the land. To oppose another man chopping down his own tree that he owns, that is haram. Allah has given him private authority to cut down that tree. Are you denying environmentalists don't get upset when many trees are cut down? Yet it's none of their business.

I am watching this BBC report on the Rio O-limp-picks.

{lf l had to run like that l'd limp the rest of the year}

The report says that viruses, raw waste, drug resistant bacteria, ... has turned the bay into a toxic soup.

l guess this will be remembered as "the Sewer Olympics"

@The Batman protecting the environment and enjoining others to also do so is part of Islam. As humans, we are stewards of the earth, and need to find the best possible balance between meeting human needs and not causing harm to future generations of people or, secondarily, other species. Maybe there is no hadith specifically saying don't build factories that spew toxic waste next to villages, but there are hadith forbidding urinating next to potential water supply. It's the same thing, only on a larger scale.

 

So yes, I'm a "tree hugger", proud to be one. You should be too.

I think sister you are getting the impression that I support pollution. I don't (why would any human want that?) - I believe in clean air and water. And yes it would be haram to poison waters which could potentially haram people.

This is not the case with modern environmentalists. Environmentalists are complaining about "deforestation" to create cities (completely within private rights) - and/or closing down oil and coal jobs which aren't haram at all. Destroying people's livelihoods over petty reasons.

Islam gives people many land rights, which sadly, environmentalists want to take down.

And finally, you can be a tree hugger sis, but you cannot complain when others cut down their trees when it is within their Islamic rights.

I think we all will agree that the middle path is best. It is not haram to cut trees, to build factories, to pave giant parking lots, to dispose of waste. Sensible environmentalism strives to find the balance between current human needs and the environment. Sensible "tree huggers" don't aim to keep every tree, just enough. 

This house that my family just bought has practically a banana grove, dozens of banana trees. I love the trees - they're gorgeous - but we are going to have to cut some of them to clear paths and open up some space. And still I consider myself a "tree hugger".

I am so sorry, @hasanhh. Please forgive me for my uncharitable behavior. It was an unchristian thing to say. So now that I have finished my Mea culpas, I have one question,

Do you think I could get them to take the Kardashians, too?

( That is probably worth the extra years in Purgatory)
