I have been dealing with public humiliation and I think so much about how I can get respect from people and someone said: only those women who take abuse silently get respect from people. It means that women, who get married, and tolerate the abuse of their husbands, get respect from people and society. I was thinking that the purpose of any kind of abuse is humiliation. Women, who deal with violence, are not focused on physical pain. They remember the humiliation they felt when getting beaten as an adult. So women, who take abuse, are only choosing one kind of humiliation over another. Does it really matter that people give you respect, when you yourself are feeling humiliated?

A group of blue- hair DSA SJW hipsters once got a chance to interact with real workers. A black,elderly miner introduced himself as, 'I am XYZ, and I am a man from XYZ', and one of the SJW hipsters proceeded to lecture him on 'invisiblizing non-heteronormative voices', others joined the chorus, and the workers all left.

Sitting among ruins of old buildings hammers home the fleeting nature of power. All that remains of royal grandeur, military might and far-flung empires is heaps of chiselled rock and wrought metal. Ghosts of those times gone by live amidst cold, discolored, stony surfaces. Names of the high and mighty survive in engravings on some bit of rubble spared by the deluge of times. Go sit amid those ruins. The melancholy seeps into you.

Or sit in a cemetery. Same melancholy.

Which is why I feel there are so many narrations from the infallibles (ams) urging us to keep visiting graves and cemeteries. The ambience has a great sobering impact- no matter what your accomplishments in life, this is the ultimate destination. Everything else is a distraction.

This is generally true.

But what I think is an exception to the rule, is Egyptian stuff. Unlike other civilisations the Egyptians seemed to have acute verbal diahorrea with every monument or building covered in hieroglyphs.

Unlike other civilisations their knowledge and beliefs reach out to us in a way that others don't. But this attempt at communication only serves to add bathos to the whole effort with the sanctity and meaningfulness of what they believed in disintegrating into objects of curiosity over the millennia.

Good observation, although on the contrary I would argue that, for all the meticulous recording, no civilization has disappeared as neatly as theirs. The Turkic, Persianate and Indic civilizations in the Ajam world still have a good measure of continuity with their ancient past. Not the case with Egyptians, it seems. Except for some stray parts here and there, ancient Egypt as a whole, including the memory of the Pharaohs, was destined to be lost in the sands of the Sahara until some European Egyptologists resurrected it in the 18th-19th Centuries.

True. But although the continuity has been lost, the extent of the physical presence and quality of narrative for something that ancient is unrivalled in my opinion.

@rkazmi33 have you seen a therapist about this? I am sorry for what you are going through. 

It's not a mental disorder. We have seen with cancel culture, how one person suddenly becomes target and millions of people viciously attack that person. It doesn't make sense to me why so many people decide to become angry at one person and it looks like a spell. I don't see any benefit in going to a therapist because my enemies have turned every person in my life against me. They can also turn a therapist against me.

Your enemies won't be able to turn your therapist against you. Therapists are also forbidden from sharing anything discussed during the session. You could do online therapy so that no one can influence the therapist if that is what you fear.

As for why people act like that, its probably herd mentality. 

You could try out the spiritual warrior program run by Zahra Makke, you may benefit from it. It may make you more resilient. You may not be able to change your external circumstances, but you can certainly change how you respond to it internally. 

InshAllah everything becomes better.

My bully sister shamed me for this when I did this once when I was in a hurry. She oppresses people so much and gets away with it. She has oppressed me so much and I cannot take revenge from her. So now everytime I go to grocery store, I refuse to return the shopping cart. It's my way of taking revenge from her. Using such a small random act to pass judgement on someone's character is so stupid. Someone might be in a hurry, busy, they might have an abusive husband at home who is keeping track of how much time they spend on doing chores.

Does your sister work for or own the shopping place? 

By not returning the cart to spite your sister,  you are allowing her to control you. You should do what is right because it is right and avoid what is wrong because it is wrong, and not let others control you.

Surely one of the signs of the end-times is people wasting food to make deliberately bad cooking videos to get likes on TikTok

So you take revenge on her bullying by acting like a bully? Return the cart and stop inconveniencing others with your petty spite. Also, you should stop letting your thoughts be consumed by your sister. Relax, I guarantee you that she isn't worth the energy you are spending on her. I agree with Notme.

whilst you have good intentions, this came across as a little harsh. Whilst it could seem like petty spite, I think its a deeper issue than that.

The truth can be harsh and I have no sympathy for anyone who purposely inconcvience others for the sake of revenge. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) guide and protect her, because her sister's words aren't worth dwelling on.

The  Indus Valley and Mesopotamian Civilizations do give a neck to neck fight here too. Differences are only slight. Both in terms of material and non material culture. They might be only slightly behind Ancient Egypt.

My friend makes and sells floor length hoodies. I'm getting a purple one! (I've been admiring her work for a while, but couldn't afford one - handmade goods cost more than factory made. ) I'm a little excited. 

I also try to buy handmade goods wherever possible, even if they are slightly more expensive than the machine made ones, to promote the artisans.

Salam everyone knows that Egyptian civilazation & culture have had deep affection on Jews which it's a theory which it has caused worshipping golden calf by them which there is nearly a far fetch theory which "Jibt" refers to idol worshipping of Jews due to  influencing by   Egyptian civilazation

Quote

In this, what is meant by Jibt and Taghoot? commentators have different interpretations [below verse 51 of Surah Nisa, which says: "yuminoona bialjibti waalttaghooti"]; Some have said: These are the names of the two idols that the Jewish population prostrated before them. Some have said: "jibt" here means "idol" and "taghoot" means "idol worshipers" or idol supporters who, as the mouthpieces of idols, quoted things from the words of idols and lied to them in order to deceive people.

Idol worshipping have same root from Shaitan which has appeared in different forms which occultism & freemasonary & later illuminati have inserted many idol worshipping symbolism from both of these two civilazation according to high affection of Jews from Egyptian civilazation & great importance of Mesopotamian Civilizations especially Babel & Nimrod in their books.

I still think it's a very stupid criteria to determine someone's character. I know how people come up with these criteria. They are asked to pass judgement on someone's character by a powerful person, they are eyes and ears of powerful people like community leader or company CEO. These people are psychologically lazy and they are cruel. They don't want to waste their mental energy on judging character of some ordinary person and they don't really care about how their judgement will affect someone's life. So they come up with these stupid, ridiculous criteria and these criteria are accepted by other psychologically lazy people because they are so easy.  There are too many people acting as eyes and ears of powerful people and they all need simple, easy tests to judge someone's character. They are all psychologically lazy who don't care about morals or ethics, they only pretend to care.

Any thought that does not involve direct, conscious and loving remembrance and connection with God, is an utter waste required to have mercy upon us, as we walk around blind with the thoughts of worldly things, and neglected the only One that matters and controls all things. Zikr Allah is greater

I'm not a parent but for small children, the answer should always be yes. It should be a crime to leave them alone in a car, especially during a heat wave.
