Empathy – fake it till you make it
Big Bang Theory – Yeah that’s what happens after too many curries. Place an Aakhirah perspective on things
Change your glasses – Change your paradigm
Drop the drama – pick up reality
Don’t judge a book by its cover
If you want to be better in the eyes of Allah, then call to Allah, do righteous deeds, stand firm and say, ‘I am one of the muslims.’ If the whole world rejects you, you have Allah, Allah is sufficient for us. OnLY true power is Allahs power
Be pateient with yourself – Do not condemn yourself
Our tawheed is in our speech and actions
The people will never het the blessing of Allah, if they become like their enemies Allah changes the hearts and minds we just need to reawaken the fitrah “I’d rather be a prisoner in Israel, eating rat poison for the rest of my life than not be a muslim” – Ustadh Hamza Tzortzis We need to free our souls
Without the existence of Allah, we just re arrangements of molecules Out of nothing comes, nothing comes.
Repentance wipes away despair
The quiet ones have the most to say, it just needs to be brought out of them Let them know who we are, rather than imposing drama
Understand their perspective
Suspend the desire to always wanting to be right
Whatever comes from truth is true
This is fulfula, I am a fulfulamian
Dawah overkill – we want the khilafah – why you always wanna kill Arthur? Have empathy when giving the dawah
Empathy is to walk in someone else’s shows for a while…feel the way they feel “If anyone knows the reality of hellfire, they would not wish it upon anyone even their own enemies” Shaykh Haitham Al Haddad Ikhlaas means when you hit the floor you bounce back up
The EDL are just as human as you. They love just as you love, they hate just as you hate, and they bleed just as you bleed. How dare we judge someone when we not walked in their shoes. Not praying is worse than being homosexual
Forget the need to be right, there is nothing more profound than saying, ‘I...
...Personality: What makesyou the way you are? - Science News - The Independent
At some point in your life, you've probably filled in a personality questionnaire ("Do you see yourself as....?"), and wondered as you ticked the boxes if there can really be any validity to such a simplistic way of assessing people. Surely the scores just reflect your mood on the day, or what you want the investigator to think. Surely everyone gives the same answer, which is "it depends". Or even if the scores measure something, surely it is how the person sees themselves, rather than how they actually are. In a new book, I examine what the extent of the science underlying personality psychology really is. The answer is: more than you would think. While it has always been popular in business and pop psychology, and within academic psychology, personality research has been a poor relation to the parts of the discipline with experiments and hard objective measures. However, this is changing fast. The field of personality is undergoing a renaissance. The reasons for the renaissance are several. Academics now have some really good long-term studies of the same individuals, and it turns out that those brief, simplistic, pencil-and-paper questionnaires have surprisingly useful properties. They produce a wide range of selfdescriptions. The responses are fairly repeatable over intervals of many years. They...
...problem. Mark Kantrowitz wrote that the government should invest more into higher education with grants to make college more affordable for students so that they don’t have to take out so many loans. Others have proposed that government, which provides (99%? site) of the student loans, establish a policy that grants loans based on the academic major (Walia). Along with this, it is also suggested that we develop a system that evaluates borrowers and limits how much they can borrow and even how much the parents can borrow for them (Sabhlok). How should we, as a society, fix the student loan debt crisis? The answer is to establish a policy where loans are granted based on the academic majors and students would be required go through a thorough evaluation process before they are allowed to take out student loans.
The first argument suggests that people pay 5% of their salary for 25 years after they graduate. This idea was developed by the National Association of Student Financial Aid administrators (Schlesinger). CBS MoneyWatch’s editor-at-large Jill Schlesinger talks about this and the other proposals on a segment for the parents and students watching CBS News. This could be a very good solution to this ever growing problem. The people that came up with it deal with all student loan problems every day. However, there needs to be more details added to really make it work. There are students that work very hard through college with goals...
...In everyone's life
there comes a point in time when you assess your life, not
just look back in time, but see the progression, the triumphs
and the failures.....Eleanor Smith had reached this point. She

Eleanor, emotions and feelings. On the outside side she tries
to be the happy homemaker, and plans dinnners for the

her rebelious teenage daughter, and play the friend figure,
but whatever she does nothing seems to make them as close

anymore. Her son, who is going through a rough time,

...What MakesYou Happy?
One of the most popular psychological studies is the study of happiness. Thousands of renowned intellectuals have been thoroughly studying this subject for decades. Also known as Hedonists, these people that study the pursuit of happiness have thought of some very valid points. Happiness ranges from comparing the potential happiness between two completely different organisms and specifically finding the solution to happiness for one certain person. The topic that will be discussed in this synthesis is simply the question “What makes an individual in today’s society happy?” This question will be answered simply by comparing experiential happiness and materialistic happiness. Or is it so simple?
When someone says that money does not buy happiness, they are wrong. Studies show that the direct relationship between money and happiness is blatantly clear. Although, yes, money does buy happiness, it does not buy as much as one might think. It is true that, to a degree, the more money a person has, the more they can afford to make themselves happy. For example, wealthier people can afford better nutrition, medical care, as well as more leisure time with people they love. This is not even including all the more material items a wealthier individual could obtain, but that will be mentioned later. Knowing that this is true, is there a cap on how much money can make someone happy?...
...What makes an American an American? Is it the accent, the clothing, the fact that you
can speak the English language, or is it the fact that you were born on American soil? I believe
it's certain characteristics that set us apart from other countries. The fact we are self-reliant, and
competitive, and the compassion we bring to others are some, of many, American characteristics that help set us apart. These are the three characteristics that I have chosen to write about.
Our self-reliance begins in the1600's when English settlers came over to America on the Mayflower because they wanted religious freedom. These people were called Pilgrims. The Pilgrims didn't just come to America for religious reasons. Some of the reasons stem from their desire to preserve their own language and customs of life while others involved their livelihood. It was difficult finding similar employment that they were accustomed to in England. Therefore, their work was hard and took its toll upon the health and well-being of not only the adults, but the children as well. They came to America not knowing if they would even have any good resources in order to survive. They relied on their own judgement and things didn't turn out too bad for them.
And what about the Native Americans? Most people know that they helped the Pilgrims grow crops and also taught them how to survive on this new land, but what about the Native Americans? Who taught...
...a teenage boy in the city who is running away from home because his dad hits him and he has had enough. There is a five-year-old girl standing in the kitchen of her two-bedroom house, making mac n cheese. She wonders why mommy is in prison and daddy never comes home. A childhood spent lost, alone, abused, and neglected could be the beginning of the path to a life of failure. Being deprived of one’s most basic needs such as food, shelter, and security can ruin someone’s whole entire life... but only if they let it. It is hard to overcome a painful childhood. It is hard to rise above the sorrow. It is extremely difficult to become successful after such a childhood, but it is possible if one has enough emotional strength and determination to make their life better (Kendall-Tackett).
So, how does it feel to be unable to depend on anyone? Jeannette Walls knows. She grew up being relocated from town to town, with no sense of security or belonging. Her father was an alcoholic, and her mother was an eccentric, impulsive woman. They frequently neglected her and her siblings, and drug them along on their wild escapades. The parents were there when they could somehow benefit from their children, but never when the kids desperately needed them. After Jeannette and her family settled down in a bad neighborhood in the town of Welch, she moved to New York City and eventually found somewhere where she was happy. Her parents, however, ended up homeless and living entirely...

We know many of you girls are using Apple Cider Vinegar for weight loss.It is really hard to find this vinegar in our country.Most of us are buying it from Almas,Priyo,CSD,Gulshan DCC market and from many other superstores.And the only available brand is Heinz.We've been using this vinegar for 3months now.Recently we bought a bottle of Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar from Gulshan DCC market.We were really surprised after opening the bottle cause the smell was completely different from the last two bottles we've used.So we compared the new bottle with the old one.And we realized the new bottle was a fake product :(
So now we will be comparing the bottles to point out how this two bottles are different and from this review you will not be cheated by the shopkeepers like we were cheated :(
This is the real Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar bottle
We know that Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is a type of vinegar made from apple cider or apple must, which has a characteristic amber color to it.But the fake one is dark in color.
The left one is the fake one
The real bottle label of Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar is much clear both in colors and writing.
The back side of the label is divided into two parts.Now lets see the back side.You can see the fake one contains only the names.There is...
...more than 2% of gross domestic product. "Brazil only spends 1.5% of their GDP on defense, and they've never been invaded," said Mr. Paul. "Canada spends about 1.2%, and they've only been invaded by us. Maybe the lesson is that a big military makes us less secure, not more."
In the summer of 2018, a software engineer at Los Alamos uploaded detailed blueprints of a Trident missile warhead to the Internet. Mr. Paul praised the engineer, who fled to Ecuador, as "civil disobedient," like Martin Luther King Jr., and noted that many scholars believe nuclear proliferation—or nuclear equality—makes the world a safer place.
Of course, not everyone was happy with the emerging utopia. From his yacht 100 miles off the coast of Marin County, hedge- fund billionaire Tom Perkins wrote bilious letters to The Wall Street Journal, which, mysteriously, the Journal saw fit to publish. Fortunately, investigative ace David Brock was able to establish that Mr. Perkins's real name is Emmanuel Goldstein, and promptly created a Two Minutes Hate program on Media Matters for America, which was very popular.
And then came the State of the Union speech. From the hushed chamber of the House of Representatives, a young Texas congressman named Harrison Bergeron yelled "You lie!" as the president spoke about the joy Americans felt as the promise of equality was finally realized.
Shhhhhh! whispered the rest of the House, in absolute unison. And President...
