I don't like meself

Pray to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to help you, and then give yourself positive thoughts and affirmations. For example: I am a capable and confident person; Allah is protecting me, etc.

The Hidden Truth about Karbala

The Injustice against the Ahlul Bayt and their Followers Since then Until Now
by A.K. Ahmed
 
The battle at Karbala is a well-known tragedy in human history. It is not fiction or legend but a historical fact. This is an excellent narrative that chronicles the injustices against the Ahlul Bayt and their followers through the ages until now.

Christians visiting the shrine of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) on the 10th of Muharram.

I wonder why you rarely find much emphasis or praise for Sunnis who observe Muharram. I think it is of much more significance and importance that Sunnis (some) do observe Muharram as Shias do, with mourning Imam Husayn (عليه السلام). Other religions attending Azadari it is merely religious diplomacy, and sometimes pure shirk (like the Hindus who believe some of the aimmah (عليه السلام) are incarnations naudhbillah). But for a Sunni to observe the days of azaa...now that is something of massive potential and impact.

Example:

The nutwork 'news' was running that 'viral video' of these two post-toddlers running and hugging each other . . .

For the umpteenth time.

Now l know why these are called "viral"  ---it takes some kind of brain virus to be entertained by this.

 

Added: :ranting: the nutwork is running again as l type this . . . well, at least l know they are two-year-olds. blank-:locked:

Shenandoah/Cannondoah Area?

Close. Southern West Virginia. Terrain and ecology are very similar if not identical. I think the hills are higher in WV.

My four year old doesn't talk. Not much anyway, not functionally.

Yesterday, he studied my face for a moment, then giggled and ran away, yelling "Ugly! Ugly! Ugly! Ugly!"

At least he used words.....

Sigh, I was looking at a thread and just realized how important it is detach from external matters of the Ummah. It's still very much a part of the Dunya.

Whether open or closed, a hand remains a hand; whether religious or irreligious, a man remains a man.

It makes no sense to debate or attach yourself to the zahir of Islam without developing the batin of Islam first.

What do you want to do? Start telling him 'be quiet' sooner than you have to?

Why not celebrate?  :birthday:

Seriously, Einstein didn't talk when he was 4. Secondly, my little nephew was behind in two developmental elements when he was 3, so he went to a speech therapist once a week for a few months. His mother says his bilingualism is good now.

Well if he's going to call me ugly I might be content to let him remain silent!

But he gets speech therapy. He communicates pretty well nonverbally at home, but life will probably be easier for him if he can communicate verbally with teachers and classmates.

What is that Australia cartoon? Something Pig". My nephew watched that when he was two and three and was calling his parents, "mommy pig" and "daddy pig". I forget what kind of pig he called his litttle sister. So he has gotten "ugly" said in a habibi way from somewhere.

He might also be 'afraid' to speak because he is unsure of it being correct. I can remember pre-school stuff where l couldn't express myself.

British, "Peppa Pig".  I don't like when I see my cousins watching that show, they could be watching other shows that are more meaningful as well as useful.

Speaking of Australia,  Peppa Pig got in some trouble over there a couple of years ago . There was an episode of  Peppa being told that spiders can't hurt you.

The problem, Australia is home to many venomous species of spiders. Kids would have gotten the wrong message and picked up something bad, like say like an Atrax robustus(Sydney web funnel.)

Salam,

I told this to my little sister this morning and she said her son, my nephew l write about, did the same thing. I asked her where he got it and she said she was sure it was from pre-school.

So, we can surmise this "ugly" rhetoric is coming from something the children are exposed to.

The fact that he giggled and ran makes me think it was a kind of game. Also, I'm not sure it was intended as words, might have been just fun sounds. As I said, he doesn't really talk. And yes, he may have picked it up from a child at preschool.

Does he have a sweet tooth?

If he does you could use candy to make him ask for it verbally, and when he does you can give him two different choices of candy and ask him which one he wants so he will be forced to speak more.

My sister in laws daughter was born early and took long time to learn how to walk/stand but I almost made her stand up by holding a snickers bar above her head and make her reach for it.

When he was born he wasn't getting oxygen and had to be intubated and in the NICU for five days. That might have caused damage to his brain. His diagnosis is autism with significant speech/language delay. He is considered pre-verbal, not non-verbal. Aside from not talking and not liking changes to his routine, he is a healthy normal little boy, alhamdulilla.

He will say "hungry" when he's hungry, and "toilet" when he needs to go, and he sometimes sings along or recites with the kids TV shows that we let him watch. Other than that, he uses gestures like reaching and jumping and he leads people to the thing or activity that he wants.

He has a calm, pleasant disposition, which actually makes it harder to motivate him to speak. If something is difficult, he will contentedly move along to something else.

l am surmising he looks you in the eye, doesn't he? (From what you wrote.)

The problem with the word "autistic" for us older people who taught is that it now applied to what we called "developmental delay" (which is a lot different from "slow learner" as used 40 years ago.)

Yes, his eye contact is good. My oldest son also has a diagnosis of autism and always has had good eye contact. My oldest spoke at a normal age, but preferred to recite phrases (echolalia) rather than creating his own sentences. (If you've seen the movie Batteries Not Included, think of the repairman. My oldest son was like that when he was little.)

I think autism spectrum disorder is a more specific description of developmental delay. Probably people my age who would be diagnosed with autism now would have been diagnosed with developmental delay when they were children. But there are other developmental delays besides autism spectrum disorders, such as delays caused by injury or illness, or by genetic conditions. The treatments and therapies seem similar.

Autism is a communication and sensory processing disorder. It probably isn't one condition with one cause, but a group of them with similar symptoms.

Black marketeers take note:  Colt Arms of Massachusetts announced Thursday the 19th of Sept that it will suspend producing AR-15s for the civilian  markets, using the excuse that there are already 11 million sold. 

OPINE: l suspect socio-political pressure.

THOUGHT: lf Colt sold 11 million of these expensive things, then there is strong demand for them. Now a black market will develop. [And people thought the Obama Justice Dep't's OPN:Fast and Furious was crazy.] So, having no faith-in-people-and-gov't l better put in an order. Light anti-tank weapons, a few land mines, a drone with Hellfire missiles, and an armored vehicle [like the ones being sold in Wisconsin years ago].

Area 51 running style.. rofl

This is an illustration on how an "internet prank" got something started. Kind of an over-sized flash mob.

USAToday reports that only a hundred people showed up. One arrest.
