nullifier

Imām an-Nawawī (raḥimhu Allāh) said:

“If a person falls into the same sin a hundred times or a thousand times — or even more, and he repents after each time, his repentance will be accepted and his sins nullified. Even if he was to repent after *all* his sins just one time, his repentance would still be sound.”

● {شرح النووي على مسلم ١٧/٧٥}

I cannot for the life of me understand how people think nothing of the disbelief of the one who edits a [Kāfir] filthy singer on top of the Ka’bah and uses it as an album cover art, then vows to memorise the lyrics of the songs like it’s the Qur’ān? This is disbelief, no question about it. 


What is the sixth nullifier of al-Islām mentioned by Shaikh al-Islām Muḥammad Ibn ‘Abdil-Wahhāb [d.1206Ḥ—Raḥimahullāhu Ta’āla]?

It is: Whoever Mocks Anything From the Religion of the Messenger or Allaah’s Reward or Punishment Has Disbelieved. [1]

The sixth kind of apostasy is mockery of what Allaah sent down or of anything that the Messenger [ṣallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa ṣallam] came with, even things from the Sunnah [of the Prophet] or recommended things like the siwāk, trimming the moustache, removing armpit hair, or trimming the nails. If a person makes mockery of any of these things, he becomes a disbeliever. The evidence for this is found in the statement of Allaah Subḥānahu wa Ta’āla:

“And if you were to ask them, they would say: ‘Surely we were only jesting and playing.’ Say: ‘Was it Allaah, His Verses, or His Messenger you were mocking? Make no mistake, verily you have disbelieved after your belief.’” سورة التوبة ٦٥-٦٦

So then the one who mocks anything that the Messenger came with, be it obligatory or recommended, he is an apostate from the Religion of al-Islām. So then what do you think about the one who says, “Growing the beard, trimming the moustache, removing armpit hair, washing the knuckles — these are insignificant things!” This is exactly what is meant by mocking of the Religion of Allaah Subḥānahu wa Ta’āla. When they say this thing, and if they know [it is from the Religion], then they have apostated, since this is belittling what the Messenger [ṣallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa ṣallam] came with. It is obligatory to have great reverence for the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah [ṣallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa ṣallam] and to respect it. 

Even if a person falls into some kind of opposition [to the Sunnah] due to his desires, then surely he still must respect the way of the Messenger [ṣallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa ṣallam], respect his Sunnah, and respect the narrations. He must not say, “These are insignificant things.” 

The proof is the Statement of Allaah Subḥānahu wa Ta’āla:

“And if you were to ask them, they would say: ‘Surely we were only jesting and playing.’ Say: ‘Was it Allaah, His Verses, or His Messenger you were mocking? Make no mistake, verily you have disbelieved after your belief.’” سورة التوبة ٦٥-٦٦

The event that led to the Revelation of this Verse was what happened with a group of people who were with the Messenger [ṣallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa ṣallam] during the Battle of Tabūk. They were Muslims. During a gathering they began to say, “We have not seen the likes of these reciters of ours, the most untruthful tongues, the greediest stomachs, the most cowardly in the face of the enemy […].” They were referring to the Messenger of Allaah [ṣallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa ṣallam] and his Companions.

Amongst them was a young man from the Companions who became enraged at this speech and went to convey what this group was saying to the Messenger of Allaah [ṣallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa ṣallam]. He found that the Revelation had preceded him [in informing the Messenger]. 

So then the group came apologising once they heard that the Messenger had became aware of what happened in their gathering. One of them was hanging on to the front harness of the Prophet’s she-camel while he [ṣallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa ṣallam] was riding it, saying, “O Messenger of Allaah! We were just talking loosely to help pass the time during the journey! We did not intend mockery, rather we only intended to joke.” The Messenger [ṣallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa ṣallam] would not even look at him, he only recited upon him this Verse:

“And if you were to ask them, they would say: ‘Surely we were only jesting and playing.’ Say: ‘Was it Allaah, His Verses, or His Messenger you were mocking? Make no mistake, verily you have disbelieved after your belief.’” سورة التوبة ٦٥-٦٦

Notice His Statement, “Verily you have disbelieved after your belief.” This proves that before they had uttered words [of mockery] they were Muslims, and that when they uttered them they apostated from al-Islām, even though they were saying that it was a joke. This is because the affairs of the Religion are not to be played with, so Allaah had declared them to be disbelievers after their faith. We ask Allaah for safety. 

Note: Shaikh Ṣāliḥ Ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān was asked about the least amount of mockery that would cause a person to be considered an apostate. He replied, “There is no least amount. A small amount is too much, and the refuge is with Allaah. Anything that is considered mockery or ridicule is disbelief. Even as they [i.e. the scholars] say: A gesture with one’s lip, hand, or eye can be considered mockery, even if he has not spoken.” 

This is also proof that whoever insults Allaah, His Messenger, His Book, anything from the Qur’an, or anything from the Sunnah of theMessenger [ṣallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa ṣallam] apostates from al-Islām, even if he was joking.

Where are those who say that he does not apostate unless he intends it in his heart? They say, “If a person insulted Allaah, the Messenger, or the Qur’ān, we do not pass a judgement upon him based merely on his utterance or his action.” Where do they get these statements and these specifications from? Allaah has judged them with apostasy while they were saying: 

“We were only jesting and playing.” سورة التوبة: ٦٥ 

They were believers in Allaah and His Messenger, people of Tawḥīd, however, once they uttered those words, Allaah said:

“Verily you have disbelieved after your belief.”  سورة التوبة: ٦٦

And He did not say, “If you had truly believed that.” We ask Allaah for safety.

So it is obligatory that things are put in their proper places and that we do not add things, take them away, or specify the texts from our own selves. Allaah did not ask about what they believed, nor did He mention that they believed [what they said], rather He ruled on them with apostasy after having faith:

So it is obligatory that things are put in their proper places and that we do not add things, take them away, or specify the texts from our own selves. Allah did not ask about what they believed, nor did He mention that they believed (what they said), rather He ruled on them with apostasy after having faith:

“Verily you have disbelieved after your belief.”  سورة التوبة: ٦٦

He based this [ruling] on a statement. He based this [ruling] on mockery, and He did not specify it with these specifications. If a person speaks with a word of disbelief without being forced into it, then he is judged with apostasy. However, if he was forced [imp: read footnote no.6 in full article], then he has not apostated in this case.

one of the things sense8 addresses which I think is really important is that like, parents can support or even spoil you financially and still be abusive towards you

paying for your college/car/insurance/hormones doesn’t disqualify somebody from being emotionally or physically abusive, it doesn’t nullify the abuse or make it not damaging.

and I know a lot of parents that will use that as leverage, saying that their kid should be grateful for ‘all the things I/we do for you"

“Yeah, Nullifier, my strength’s gone for now.” *Kicks him in the crotch* “You can tell, as Earth doesn’t suddenly have two tiny, hairy moons.”

“BREAKING: Virginia transgender teen Gavin Grimm wins historic case at Fourth Circuit! Court rules federal civil rights law protects transgender students from discrimination. 

While this ruling does not impact most of discrimination in North Carolina’s HB2 law, it does nullify the provision targeting transgender students. HRC reiterates its call on North Carolina Governor McCrory to spearhead repeal of HB2. Schools must immediately reverse course and ensure students have access to restrooms in accordance with their gender identity.”

U.K. issues travel advisory about anti-LGBT laws in North Carolina and Mississippi
On Tuesday, the British Foreign Office updated its travel advisory to warn LGBTQ tourists about anti-gay, anti-trans laws recently passed in North Caro ...

It’s official: the recent anti-LGBT laws passed in North Carolina and Mississippi are getting international attention, and not in a good way. Last week, the British Foreign Office updated its travel advisory to inform citizens about the laws. 

“The US is an extremely diverse society and attitudes towards LGBT people differ hugely across the country,” the advisory explains. “LGBT travellers may be affected by legislation passed recently in the states of North Carolina and Mississippi. Before travelling please read our general travel advice for the LGBT community.”

North Carolina is currently in the midst of a backlash over its passage of HB2, a sweeping bill that forbids trans people from using certain bathrooms and nullifies local LGBT nondiscrimination ordinances.

Oof. These laws have got to go. 

Imām an-Nawawī (raḥimhu Allāh) said:

“If a person falls into the same sin a hundred times or a thousand times — or even more, and he repents after each time, his repentance will be accepted and his sins nullified. Even if he was to repent after *all* his sins just one time, his repentance would still be sound.”

a snotty egotistical witch student who’s only in the prestigious school because their mother is the dean, and they summon demons for basically everything but they don’t always get the sigils right which leads to sometimes, unfortunate situations when they accidentally summon the wrong demon, thus nullifying the contract and rendering them out of their control

updated a character i played with last year because i still like em

The Ruby x Dorothy VS. Ruby x Mulan debate hits the very core of LGBT+ representation in modern media: we could have had better representation (more development, screentime spanning over more episodes instead of a filler, a pairing with a woc the audience already knew and rooted for); however, the writers appear to care only about that the fact that there is some kind of representation, no matter the depth or significance of it, implying that that’s what the audience should be happy about.

I consider this approach educationally harmful, because the narrow-minded viewer will just easily forget this pair after, maybe, a moment of unfortunate disgust. Once Upon A Time is, save some exceptions, a show of instant romances. But applying this concept to a LGBT+ couple nullifies the opportunity to make the narrow-minded viewer root for that couple, making him/her question his/her issues with same sex love.

Representation should be a moment of reflection for both the writers and the audience, and replacing Mulan with Dorothy robbed everyone of a beautiful opportunity. I don’t want just any kind of representation. I want representation that means something, and not to me, but to all the viewers who can learn something from it. But hey, at least we got to see a LGBT+ couple in Once Upon a Time, right? *snorts* 

anonymous asked:

ok but imagine the first time thorne takes cress to the beach. like omg cute little cresswell moments (your headcanons make my life)

  • The first time Thorne took Cress to the beach, the rest of the Rampion crew got wind of his plans and wanted to come too. It’s not like Wolf had even been before and Scarlet had only been a couple of times when she was little. Cinder and Iko had never been to the beach either and even though Winter and Jacin have been on the sandy shores of Lake Artemisia, Iko insisted that it didn’t count.
  • Thorne was a little less than enthused that everyone decided to hi-jack his beach adventure, but was easily nullified when Kai offered the use of the Imperial Beach House for the weekend. 
    • Kai had even managed to clear his calendar and was able to join in on the fun.
    • It had been the first time everyone had gathered into the Rampion and Thorne secretly loved seeing his ship full of crew members friends. 
  • They had to keep the Rampion in the hanger at New Beijing Palace, but luckily, they were able to cram into the two podships that would take them to the beach house. Jacin piloted the one with Winter, Cinder, and Kai, and Scarlet piloted the one with Wolf, Thorne, Cress, and Iko. 
    • Thorne liked to call his podship the “party” one and spent most of the trip comm’ing podship two and heckling them.
  • When they all finally made it to the Imperial Beach House, people practically ran around the house admiring how big it was and claiming rooms. 
    • Thorne tried to claim the master suite for himself, but Cinder kicked him out. He settled for the second biggest bedroom and insisted that his view was much nicer.
      • He was a little bummed that Cress didn’t want to share a bedroom with him, but was touched to see how excited she was to be sharing a room with Iko, even if there were plenty of rooms for everyone to have their own.
      • In the end it didn’t matter much because the first night they were there, they had built a bonfire and most of them ended up falling asleep on the beach. The second night, they had gathered around in the entertainment room to watch a movie and ended up having a big slumber party. 
  • When it was time to actually explore the beach, it was important to Thorne that he and Cress went together. He knocked on her door and was amused when Iko poked her head out and said that Cress was still getting ready.
    • When Cress finally emerged from her room, Thorne was speechless. She was wearing a loose sundress that revealed freckled shoulders and a black and white striped bathing suit underneath. She was also wearing the world’s largest sunhat and had some difficulty getting pass the door. 
      • Thorne thought it was the most adorable thing ever when she insisted that she didn’t want to get a sunburn. They both shuddered at the memory of the harsh Sahara sun.
  • Thorne was just as excited as Cress when they finally made it to the beach. 
    • Cress’s face lit up the first time she laid eyes on the expansive strip of sand and sea, and he let her tug his arm as she raced towards the water to splash around and squeal with glee. 
    • Thorne helped her apply sunscreen onto her back and shoulders and laughed when she scrunched up her nose when he applied the lotion onto her face.
    • Thorne also laughed when Cress helped him put sunscreen on his back because she was being meticulous and everyone else was already splashing around in the water before Cress was done.
      • Thorne was glad for Cress’s diligence when at the end of the day, Jacin ended up with a mild sunburn and a couple of hand-prints on his back because Winter was too distracted by a crab that had scurried by.
    • Thorne taught Cress how to jump waves and couldn’t help but grin when she clung to him as he pulled her out a little further and her toes left the ground.
      • He promised he wouldn’t let go and he never did.
    • When they got tired of swimming, and after another round of sunscreen, Thorne taught Cress his tried and true method for sunbathing.
      • Cress humored him for ten minutes and then got up to look for seashells and sea glass. 
  • With the whole Rampion crew there, they ended up playing beach volleyball, building an impressive sandcastle with a moat (Cress decorated the castle with the seashells she had found), and cooking their dinner in the huge bonfire that they made right on the beach.
    • With Scarlet and Wolf too lazy to cook, they basically just had s’mores for dinner.

I like the Josh Kirby Time Warrior series of films from the mid 90s. For a bunch of kids films on viewing when older they actually have some really complex underlying messages. Given that very few people remember these films and there’s hardly anything online about it, I thought I’d do my part to saturate the market :P

This is a screen shot from the fourth film. Azabeth Siege essentially pulling the Jim Cornette face. More to follow as and when I get round to it.
