Ponderings: Calling ourselves servants or slaves of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) gives the impression that we are helping him or doing work to benefit Him, as slaves and servants in this world do. I wonder what a better term would be... Captives maybe? As we rely totally on Him and look for Allah to have mercy on us in every situation. And any good we do benefits only ourselves.

Would it be okay to take my kids to watch a PG rated movie?

How old are your kids? You don't want to take kids that are too young to a movie that isn't close to their age and mindset.

In case anyone is interested the movie in question is 'Aladin'.

Well, that shouldn't be too bad. You'll have to explain to them before or after it about the issue of dressing modestly because I don't anyone in that movie is dressed modestly. Also, since its a love story it should also give you the chance to explain to them the Islamic principles of how to speak and interact with members of the opposite sex when they come of the age of looking for a spouse.

I am not fond of Disney movies in general but there isn't much choice.

What's wrong with Disney?

It's 116 F here and temperatures are predicted to soar further.

As long as the theatre is Air Conditioned you'll be good.

There are few entertainment opportunities and we haven't been out all Ramadan, so please don't bash me for my choice of movie. 

Was the movie their choice? Even so, most Disney family movies are relatively fun. You can use it as a great opportunity to discuss Islamic principles regarding whatever is in the movie. Use it as an educational moment to share modesty and gender interaction Islamic principles with them.

I feel that the United Kingdom is trolling the Great Troll on my behalf. If I trolled him myself they'd shut down my internet service and freeze my credit. 

Thanks, my British cousins.

I actually saw him with the Queen, just down the road from my apartment, overlooking Buckingham palace of all places. We're fairly happy about his arrival, his tea with her Majesty, and strengthening the bond between our two great nations. I've seen her Majesty a few times, and she's seen me, like through her car she gets driven around once or twice - lovely woman, but like any typical old woman.

No mowing the lawn from the apartment.

Y'all can keep him. He's nothing but trouble here. 

A president who actually does what he says he'll do, and you guys complain? Typical Mericans.

That's the problem, he's doing exactly what he said he would do. 

Imagine Nigel Farage as your PM.

No, he doesn't. He has more documented lies and false promises than any politician in history. 

Plus he lost the popular vote. We can complain until he starts doing something to justify having the electoral college. (The electoral college was invented to give greater power to slave-owner states, has long been obsolete, and was never ethical.)

You are a civil engineer graduate, in my eyes a tough degree and very respectable. You are a doer, you like to not just plan but execute and see that done by virtue of your own work. Trump gets things done and does what he says. I don't like him nor what I vote for him, but you can't deny, if he says he will do something he's going to get it done.
