    Paris in mourning - NObama extremists - Captures marine

    in Politics

    Hr1  Paris under attack.


    Jason Wert, newscaster with USA Radio News, provides the latest update on the Paris attacks.


    University of Minnesota rejects 9/11 remembrance because it might incite racism. Ridiculous!


    Hr2  Why can't our President call the Paris attackers what they are Muslim extremists or Islamic terrorists?


    Media personality, Xander Gibb asks, how much more do we have to allow President Obama do before we stop him from further destroying our country by impeaching him?


    University of Missouri student VP says 1st Amendment needs to go because it creates an unsafe & hostile environment. Xander says that 1st Amendment that she's complaining about is what gives her a platform to speak her mind.


    Hr3  What is wrong with the Obama Administration? We still have a US Marine, Amir Mirza Hekmati, imprisoned in Iran for the crime of simply being a US Marine! John Kerry blew it. A hostage release should have been negotiated before the Iran deal. Now what do we have to trade? #FreeAmirNow


    Greg Gutfeld rips college students saying: "The entire campus needs a giant pair of pampers."


    Protesters at Amherst College publish ridiculous list of demands to squelch free speech... or else they will escalate the situation!


    There's just no reasoning with some people. Just because you want $15 minimum wage doesn't mean you deserve it.


    Alan Dershowitz goes off on PC college culture saying ‘the fog of fascism is descending.’


    Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

    FILM: Meet Afia Nathaniel, director of "Dukhtar"

    in Movies

    Join us for a conversation with filmmaker Afia Nathaniel, whose feature film, "Dukhtar" was Pakistan’s official submission for Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards®.


    In a village in Pakistan, a young mother Allah Rakhi (Samiya Mumtaz) kidnaps her ten-year-old daughter Zainab (Saleha Aref) to save her from a child marriage to a tribal leader. Their daring escape triggers a deadly hunt for them. With the pursuers close behind, the mother strikes an unlikely deal with Sohail (Mohib Mirza) a cynical ex-Mujahid truck driver to take them to Lahore. Carefully dodging the far-reaching influence of the tribal leader, the trio embark on an epic journey through the sweeping landscape of Pakistan where the search for freedom and love comes with a price.


    After a rousing reception at Toronto International Film Festival 2014 and in over 20 countries since then, the critically acclaimed "Dukhtar" recently screened in New York and Los Angeles from Pakistan for its one-week theatrical release.


    Team Dukhtar: 


    Producer: Muhammad Khalid Ali
    Co-Producers: Cordelia Stephens, Shrihari Sathe, Thea Kerman, Noman Waheed, Carsten Aanonsen
    *ing Samiya Mumtaz, Mohib Mirza, Saleha Aref

    BS of the Sun Podcast 10/8/15: Preseason basketball is here

    in Basketball

    Kellan Olson joins me (Jim Coughenour) this time around as we cover all the current Suns news.


    The scrimmage at the Madhouse on McDowell stirred up memories for many older fans in attendance. The actual basketball played was fairly vapid, but I managed to keep busy by scrutinizing the mannerisms and wardrobe of Markieff Morris. There was a large contingent of young fans at the game, too, and the Suns players didn't disappoint by staying well after the game to sign autographs. Should this be an annual ritual?


    Kellan breaks down the Suns first preseason game against the Kings and how Jon Leuer doesn't appear to be conceding the the backup four minutes to Mirza Teletovic.


    Rollin J. Mason's SB Nation Suns Season Preview was such a good read that Kellan and I discussed its finer points. Listen to what we think of the overall roster moves, strengths, weaknesses and team goals.


    The topic of the Brandon Knight/Lakers first round pick trade will surely pop up this season, probably more prominently if the Suns struggle and the pick falls into the mid lottery. Have Suns fans already reconciled this situation, or is there still a chance of buyer's remorse settling in?


    Finally, the last line I read out of Vegas has the Suns over/under at 36.5 wins. Does that sound high, low, or just about right?

  • QSI: Seerah Of The Prophet "The Changing Of The Qiblah and Quranic Abrogation"

    in Education

    “There was a hidden message for the Yahud and He will supercede your Prophets. He is not just a Jewish Prophet” and telling the Qureish that they aren’t qualified to be custodians of the Ka’aba.” Sheikh Yasir Qadhi (Youtube Seerah #33)


    What is the scholar’s methodology?


    They only report what is confirmed by evidence (sound sources that meet approved standards)


    They only report what scholars have surmised and any differences of opinion they may have regarding their perceptions and reasoning about the Quran and the Hadith.


    They use logic in their reasoning and interpretation but don't emphasize it to their public.


    The focus of their tafsir is to prove and uplift the honor, nobility and honesty and trustworthiness of the Prophet.


    The focus of their tafsir is to prove has the aim of encouraging the people to be “Obedient and Morally Good”; to invite people to Worship and Virtue”.


    What is the difference between other scholars and the Imam?  Language Logic and Sensitivity


    Language is any expression (message, word, sentence, saying, symbol, ritual or event etc.)


    Logic is The Reason(ing) for something embedded in that expression (the message): The Logic is discovered by asking “What does the message etc. mean for behavior in any domain?” The Logic also means “The Strategy, Vision, Purpose, Mission. In other words, the behavioral end that the message points to?”)


    Sensitivity (What you’re on the lookout for as a result of the message?)

    BS of the Sun Podcast 7/24/15: Summer League Recap

    in Basketball

    Dave King and Jim Coughenour discuss Phoenix's Summer League performance and where the roster stands. 


    Of course we're going to share our thoughts on T.J. Warren, Devin Booker, Alex Len and Archie Goodwin, but in addition to the recap of what went down in Vegas there are a few other Suns related topics abreast. 


    Is the lack of communication between Markieff Morris a non-issue or the second July Moratorium for the Suns this offseason? Should this be concerning... considering Keef's track record?


    Dave appears to like Mirza Teletovic.


    We also discuss potential strengths... quality at the five, a staunch starting lineup and upside on team defense.


    And possible weaknesses... three point shooting and the unproven track record of the bench.


    Plus, a disagreement on whether rebounding counts as part of offense/defense.


    Enjoy.

    in Education

    “For 1200 years, since the Medieval Period up to Pre-Modern Islam the Ummah has agreed that the Isra Wa Mi’raj was in body and soul; was in flesh and spirit and NOT IN A DREAM” - Sheikh Yasir Qadhi


    Is There A 3rd Alternative Perception For The Event Of The Isra Wa Mi’raj?


    Imam Mohammed’s Methodology and Strategy for interpreting such events can be done without conflicting with the report.

    QSI: The Seerah #22: The Prophet's Night Journey (Part 2)

    in Education

    (Sheikh Yasir Qadhi)          ‘Abd –Highest praise that Allah has given to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The Prophet is the perfect Worshipper of Allah. So no one has perfected the worship of Allah or “THE PURPOSE OF CREATION” (i.e., purpose of Jinn and Men) like Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).


     (Imam Faheem Shuaibe) “THE PURPOSE OF CREATION” needs to be “fleshed out” because that is the “Big Picture”, “Strategy”, “Perception” that facilitates the interpretation of what most are taught to “write-off” as “Ilm ul Ghaib”.
