compilation of apps & websites

hey, guys! i’m back again, with another masterpost (!!!) it’s my fifth one this month bc its one of my new year’s resolutions to make a masterpost for each week of the month! hopefully this helps u guys!!!

some tips //

  • using an extension/app/website to block distracting sites is a lifesaver
  • i use the blocksite extension on chrome
  • u can also use forest to block ur sites + time ur studying
  • pomodoro is one of my personal favorites bc it’s 25 minutes of work (which is a pretty short time, so u can concentrate better) + 5 minutes of a break (to refresh urself!!!)
  • remember not to get too caught up in these, bc too many sites + apps are just a waste of time, and u’ll end up studying even less
  • everything in moderation!!!

resources //

wow, that was a long post, and now my eyes hurt from staring at the screen. but hopefully this is useful to someone!!! also, shoutout to @studyquill bc her tags and navigation is so organized and easy to use; when i was researching for other studyblr masterposts on apps and websites, i ended up reblogging a bunch from her tag!!! hugs, mel.

Ravenclaw Headcanon

Some Muggle Born Ravenclaws heard about the website ratemyprofessor.com and were inspired. They spent long nights developing witchandwizardweighin.com. The site quickly spread across the school and ratings for each professor went live. Upperclassmen wrote detailed reviews of professors for the First Years; filled with tips and tricks to pass each class. 

Professor Longbottom was overwhelmingly rated the hottest teacher.

team internet’s character lineup of personified websites and apps because why not

i’ll probably make something out of this, who knows (maybe even more characters i guess)

1st row: tumblr, twitter, youtube, facebook, instagram

2nd: google, bing, yahoo, wikipedia

3rd: deviantart, soundcloud, snapchat (hah), wattpad, reddit

He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.

What else is out there?

anonymous asked:

Does islamqa site provide wrong answers?Is that what you meant in recent post about abonoor promoting salih Al munajjad? What are the sources of learning for a layman on internet?

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

may Allah reward you for your question and seeking clarity. Please accept my apology due to the delay in response but I wanted to compile a list of websites before I could respond.

yes you are correct, islamqa provides wrong answers. here is one simple example out of the many.

in case you are confused about the answer, there is a unanimous agreement from the times of the Sahaabah, to their students, to the students of their students, to all the scholars who have followed them in guidance on the impermissibility of political demonstrations, speaking out against the rulers, etc for social injustice. The Prophet ﷺ taught us how to deal with every single affair in the religion, and no one from the Salaf have allowed demonstrations and rallies. yet the author of that website gives the incorrect fatwa and misguides his audience with this.

without spending more time in going through more of his posts, but perhaps the more serious issue with him (Saalih al-Munajjid), is his defence of an individual who denies things from the basic beliefs of a Muslim, such as the Scales on the Day of Judgment, makes takfeer of the entire Ummah by mentioning that there are no Muslim countries left in the world and declares all the Muslim rulers to be kuffar (disbelievers), assigns hypocrisy to some of the Companions of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ (those who Allah عز و جل said He is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him), and belittles the Prophets, with foul statements in regards to them. if an individual was to say some of the above about one of our close companions or family members, i am quite sure we would be very quick to abandon this person and not associate with them in any way. yet…this author of the website not only continues to promote his work but rather continues to defend him. and this is why the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah have warned against the individual and the website.

so may Allah bless you, i advise you and all those who have jealousy for your religion, to be careful where you take your knowledge from. as for some of the good websites for laymen like myself to seek knowledge from. the following is not a complete list, but إن شاء الله‎ it is a good starting point [i am assuming since you said for the ‘layman’ that you do not know arabic, if you are looking for arabic then let me know and بإذن الله i will provide some]:

some websites of students of knowledge:

Islamic centres and masaajid:

Additional blogs of the people of the Sunnah:

and I praise none above Allah, and Allah is the true Reckoner of all their authors. والله أعلم
