I have now gone from 10th to the 7th highest SC reputation of all time, recently surpassing @starlight, @Darth Vader, and @Ruq

As a modest man, I honestly didn't believe it was worth mentioning, but I felt compelled to do so, at the behest of the amazing people on this forum, who would be disappointed if I didn't. I owe it to them. 

Many factors exist for this phenomenal rise, but above all, it's just my great connection with the people. The comforting impulse to like and support my contributions (which I prefer to call "gifts") is tremendous and awe inspiring. The emotion is raw. 

The key is to give people what they need, then go beyond that. Before I post, I ask myself, "Would I want to read that myself"? Every time, the answer is affirmative, and my instincts do not fail me. And it is precisely that confidence that gives me the edge, time and time again.

It's magnetic, it's electric, but overall it's just pure beauty. A warm sunset on a nice summer evening. 

God bless you my friends.

In my eyes, this is one of the best Seerah works on the life of the Prophet Muhammed [saw] and the decades after his death, and it is pretty concise and short whilst having a very good level of analysis and depth.

I believe as Shaykh Hamzah Yusuf states, it is ideal to read the Seerah once a year, so you really get familiar with the names, places, and chronology of events. Additionally there are several lessons to be learnt, which can not merely be learnt through only one reading of it.

If you follow Muhammed [saw] and have the mental capacity, time, physical means, and ability to read his seerah but have not done so, really consider doing it, because it is a [true] story more epic and profound than any you can read in a novel. So before you read that Stephen King novel, pick up a reliable seerah. A lover of Ali a.s would never neglect the seerah of his superior and master, Muhammed [saw].

@uponthesunnah dont put hadiths in the thoughts thread, make another thread and post your findings there

Forgive me, i felt that i did not want to create too many threads but only wanted to relay random research and thoughts i had, but perhaps i might do it on a blog.

I leave my phone in the car during the first half of work (until lunch break) otherwise I will never get anything done.... Like right now.

I am bumping into blondes more often than one would here at Lahore. Is it a sign or secret message angels trying to convey me... me wonders. Even worse they instantly get attracted to me. Perhaps they'd know I am very beautiful and decent and sober and all. Perhaps.... never mind. 

whats your obsession with blondes, man????

I am not obsessed with blondes, blondes wanna be obsessed with me. Look I didn't go to Europe, they came to Lahore. I wish I could post a pic. But their dressing isn't sharia compliant.

I think I'll add another new year's resolution: do more nothing. 

I've been doing nothing for a small while now. I'm thoroughly enjoying it. I colored a page of a coloring book and now I'm watching an old movie. It's nice to lounge around. I should do more of it.

Who likes post-it notes?

My little sister collects them obsessively, but doesn't use them. I use them to leave notes for myself to read later, and as a bookmark.

we are the same age!!!!

Dear Lord, I never said, I was an old fart back then ... in contrast to what I have and all of us collectively have become NOW ... over the period of time... 

despite I am actually 2 years older than you.. i guess i am smarter, more handsome, and a blonde-magnet by birth.

I'm way younger than you guys, but more accomplished. How does that work?

yeah I had figured that out.. already... you are way too younger that I had assumed... you know PS4. if you count COD or Dota 2 accomplishments to your credits, then definitely, you are remarkable. *a lot of sarcasm intended*
