i think freckles, stretch marks, tattoos, bruises, birthmarks and scars are probably the coolest thing, you started with almost a blank canvas and look at u now, all this evidence that you’ve lived and the sun has shone on you and you’ve grown and maybe tripped up a few times and liked an image so much u made it a permanent part of u, beautiful.

That’s one of the most uplifting things I’ve read

This needs to get passed around more

It was a Muslim who realized that light ENTERS our eyes, unlike the Greeks who thought we EMITTED rays, and so invented a camera from this discovery.
It was a Muslim who first tried to FLY in 852, even though it is the Wright Brothers who have taken the credit.
It was a Muslim by the name of Jabir ibn Hayyan who was known as the founder of modern Chemistry. He transformed alchemy into chemistry. He invented: distillation, purification, oxidation, evaporation, and filtration. He also discovered sulfuric and nitric acid.
It is a Muslim, by the name of Al-Jazari who is known as the father of robotics.
It was a Muslim who was the architect for Henry V’s castle.
It was a Muslim who invented hollow needles to suck cataracts from eyes, a technique still used today.
It was a Muslim who actually discovered inoculation, not Jenner and Pasteur to treat cowpox. The West just brought it over from Turkey
It was Muslims who contributed much to mathematics like Algebra and Trigonometry, which was imported over to Europe 300 years later to Fibonnaci and the rest.
It was Muslims who discovered that the Earth was round 500 years before Galileo did.
The list goes on………..
Just imagine a world without Muslims. Now I think you probably meant, JUST IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT TERRORISTS. And then I would agree, the world would definitely be a better place without those pieces of filth. But to hold a whole group responsible for the actions of a few is ignorant and racist. No one would ever expect Christians or White people to be held responsible for the acts of Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma bombing) or Andreas Brevik (Norway killing), or the gun man that shot Congresswoman Giffords in head, wounded 12 and killed 6 people, and rightly so because they had nothing to do with those incidents! Just like the rest of the 1.5 billion Muslims have nothing to do with this incident!

this retailer sells a halal nail polish. this allows for oxygen and water to go through the nail, which makes it acceptable to wear during prayer. spread the word. 

“Being a relatively modern creation, nail polish remains obviously unaddressed by early Islamic sources. But the general consensus in the Islamic community is that praying with nail polish is impermissible because of the waterproof barrier it creates on nails, which prevents the wudu ritual from being completed five times a day.” (source)

For any Muslim followers.

A student studying Arabic was detained, arrested, and questioned for carrying ARABIC FLASHCARDS at the airport. He wanted to sue the TSA agents but the judge ruled that some of the words he was studying (like “bomb” and “target”) warranted “further investigation.” Whatever that means.

We still have government officials institutionally supporting Islamophobia and cultivating a fear of the middle east. Why criminalize a language? Associate language with violence, “do you know what language Bin Laden spoke?” Fuck that noise. American presidents, the elite in this country have slaughtered, killed, and supported the genocide of native americans, kidnapped and enslaved africans, stolen mexican land in the name of manifest destiny, put japanese and their descendants in concentration camps just because they looked asian and continue to institutionally oppress poc domestically and internationally. And they spoke english.

Dont come here telling me that arabic is a language of terrorists, because the biggest terrorists I know are english speaking white men. Goodbye.

What the actual fuck

I got searched three times at the airport when I had my Arabic flash cards but never detained by TSA, probably because I’m white.

If you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that you’re only 16.

If you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that you cry like a child in court.

If you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that you had a promising future.

if you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that your life is destroyed.

If you rape someone, it should haunt you for the rest of your life. 

You raped someone. 

You deserve every ounce of justice we can place upon you in court of law.

Can we get this signal boosted please? I drew this pic and posted it like not even ten minutes ago (screenshot of canvas for proof) and this guy reblogs it as art theft and so I go on his profile, and he is literally reblogging almost any and all art that’s posted as art theft. I went into his archive. ALL OF THE ART is tagged as art theft. 

So I want to signal boost this to all my followers because its obvious he’s attacking any artist, no matter the skill level. Can We seriously get him reported or banned please? 

Can we please, PLEASE signal boost this? I think its immensely important :/

its also hilarious that apparently his motto is no posing

please signal boost!!! he has reblogged my (now deleted) picture and claimed it as his too and i rly dont want anyone else to get their art reblogged by him!!! he can cause misunderstandings to some people and this really isn’t ok!!!

My therapist: Look at nature. Look at flowers. We never walk into our garden and say "Oh wouldn't that flower be so much more pretty if it were taller? Or red instead of pink?" No, we don't. Because nature was created perfect just as it is. And so are we. We are part of nature, we are how we're meant to be, we are perfect just as we are.
