Just a reminder:

When Prophet Muhammad (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) was travelling on the road with his cousin, Al-Fadl ibn Abbas, a woman stopped him to ask him a question.  The woman was very beautiful, and Al-Fadl couldn’t help but stare at her.

Seeing this, Prophet Muhammad reached out his hand and turned his cousin’s face away.

He didn’t tell the woman to cover her face.

He didn’t tell her to change her clothing.

He didn’t tell her that her appearance was too tempting or indecent.

He averted his cousin’s impolite stare.

this is one of my favorite movies of all time i wanna watch it now ugh

Things that make you go “hmmm”.

Election Rant on the New Democratic Coalition

Have you all seen the breakdown of demographics of people who voted to re-elect the President? He won overwhelmingly with young people, women and Latinos.

This break-down of demographics is very telling. President Obama won with the demographics that will ultimately help build a stronger coalition for the Democratic Party in the future. Young people, specifically, overwhelmingly voted for him, and as you know, these young people will become old people and they will most likely stay firmly Democratic (if this coalition stays consistent for one more election). That’s HUGE.

Also, gay rights are an important issue for young people and the GOP chooses to hate them. Young people think differently, and have a conscience. Many will not vote for a party of bigots.

The same goes for the Latino vote. As Republicans alienate this group, they will find that they will ultimately just alienate themselves. They are the fastest growing group of voters, and they can very well swing the election in the future. They will be key voters as states in the southwest begin to turn from red to blue. Texas, for one, is a state the GOP needs to keep an eye on. Heavily Latino counties ALL went for Obama. If the GOP let’s the Tea Party keep pull them too far right, Latinos will abandon them.

Finally, women. The rhetoric regarding women’s health and rights coming from key Republican players (including the VP) was DISGUSTING during the race. No female surrogate can make up for terrible comments that were made about rape and abortion. Not only were those statements morally reprehensible, but they cost Romney the election. And rightfully so.

If the Democrats keep this up, they are really going to change the political landscape in this country. I think this is a good time for Republican leaders to get together and reflect on the future of their party. As many have been saying, they’re on the wrong side of history and they are paying the price.

Latinos, blacks, young adults and women: They’re the ones who handed President Obama a second term. Now, he and his fellow Democrats in Congress have to decide just how earnestly they’ll fight for what their key constituencies want.

So it was yesterday — just hours after the Election Night celebration had ceased here in Obama’s hometown — that Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez, the author of a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the House, had a message for his party and his president: Get cracking.

“Democrats better not think that the community that came out so forcefully for the president and his re-election is simply going to say, ‘OK, do whatever it is you wish,’ ” Gutierrez told The Daily, after a news conference with a local pro-immigration group. “They better act on this issue, and they better act on it quickly, and in a forceful way.”

But obviously worth it.

No Boys Allowed of the Day: Saudi Arabia will continue its tradition of separate and unequal when it begins construction on a women-only city next year, designed to boost the economy while meeting the stringent standards of the country’s Sharia law. (Women are allowed to work in an expanded capacity, so long as “their essential duties of homemaking should not be neglected.”)

No word on when women will be granted the right to drive.

[arbroath]

At first I was all like “This is outrageous! Separate but equal doesn’t work!” and then I was all like “I’m glad these women will get the opportunity to run their own businesses” and now I’m a little conflicted. A dude told once told me that “every bucket of water begins with a drop”, so I guess this is just a step in the right direction even though it’s still pretty offensive.
