The photos Saudi Arabia doesn't want seen – and proof Islam's most holy relics are being demolished in Mecca ›

alscientist:

so, this is happening…I bet muslims won’t say anything because they think that the saudis are top authority in islam for one terrible reason or another. this is islamic history we are talking about, from the beginning of this religion, yet the only argument they have is “bidah” so you know, muslims are ok with that. the saudis and their lapdogs are despicable and disgusting, as per usual.

"Although racism and sexism readily intersect in the lives of real people, they seldom do in feminist and antiracist practices. And so, when the practices expound identity as woman or person of color as an either/or proposition, they relegate the identity of women of color to a location that resists telling." - Kimberlé Crenshaw (pictured above), Mapping the Margins: Intersectionality, Identity Politics, and Violence Against Women of Color

She is the originator of the term “intersectionality” to describe what Black women have lived, known and experienced for centuries. It describes what Sojourner Truth spoke in 1851. It is not just a word, not a meme and even more than a concept. When it’s disregarded, so are Black women and other marginalized women of colour, globally. And before people come to critique the word, the concept, the epistemology, the experiences and the lives of Black women, it would behoove them to actually know what it is they are talking about versus trying to plagiarize, colonize or erase Black women’s work. And though the intersections of race/gender/class/sexual orientation aren’t the only ones articulated, this is its origin.

Not sure about you resolutions for this year? Imam Zaid Shakir’s advices and 10 take-home points from #RIS2013: 1. Don’t use plastic water bottles. Use a water filter or carry a water dispenser container. 2. Avoid eating a lot of meat. For starters, eliminate it from your diet on Mondays and Thursdays. 3. Don’t listen to popular music and avoid its negative effects. 4. Don’t watch TV. 5. Plant a garden and start producing your own food. 6. Plant trees. 7. Find your passion. Then equip yourself to share this passion with others. 8. Read more. Allah commandes us with ‘Iqra’ ( read). Allah did not say “shāhid” ( watch). 9. Do not let a day go by without reading a portion from the Qu’ran. 10. Make abundant Salawāt ( prayers) every single day.

I don’t celebrate the New Year but as every day we can make changements in our life, here some ideas
