this picture of Obama and Edward Said back in 2004 always breaks my fucking heart, every time I see it. poor Said, miskeen habibi Allah yerhamo cozying up with the same man who would later lead the single largest political and financial enabler of Israeli apartheid, terrorism and settler colonialism.
"After the death of great revolutionaries, attempts are made to convert them into harmless icons, to canonize them, so to say, and to hallow their names to a certain extent for the “consolation” of the oppressed classes and with the object of duping the latter, while at the same time robbing the revolutionary theory of its substance, blunting its revolutionary edge and vulgarizing it.” - Lenin, State and Revolution
At the end of the day, it isn’t where I came from. Maybe home is somewhere I’m going and never have been before.
yeah sure habibi, but come Yawm al-Qiyamah, i’ll be verryyyy relevant because Allah will be counting your sins against me. so let’s be real, I’m relevant now too, because you need my forgiveness before that day.
Non-Muslims don’t comment on hijab because they care about us, they do it because it’s just an outlet for them to condemn Muslims.
Their “concern” isn’t coming from a good place.

Photoshopping does more than alter our sense of body image in terms of weight. It also portrays false ideals of skin pigment.
The design and aesthetics of the most impressive damns were produced by the Aghlabid of Tunisia near their capital, al Qayrawan, in the 9th century. In the region of Tunisia, there were over 250 reservoirs, with 2 basins each. One was used for decantation, the separating the sediment from the water, and the other was a reserve. Sometimes, on the larger schemes, there was a third one for drawing water. In iran is the Kebar damn, the oldest arched dam known (about 700 years old). In today’s Afghanistan, 3 dams completed by King Mahmoud of Ghaznah in the 11th century near his capital city. Dam construction in Muslim Spain was immense, and the masonry they used was a type of cement that was harder than stone itself, so they hardly needed any repairs in a thousand years. The level of craftsmanship and superiority kept 1/3 of the 7th and 8th century damns still intact.
