May Allah keep their Iman high, grant them and all reverts Jannat ul Firdaws and be an inspiration for others. Amin.
I love how the western life style is reduced to clubbing and drinking.

btw I just noticed, that except the first two posts in this series, I’ve put the apostrophe after “em”. I have absolutely no idea how that crept into the titles and I didn’t notice until this the 17th post. That’s quite funny actually.

Videos? Love em’ XII

Salam Alaykum,

another weeks gone by and if I’m honest I’ve been quite busy with exam preparation and had my first exam today.

Yeah well I did not expect it to be that hard : / inshaAllah khair. Lets trod on my fav videos this week.

Let’s remind ourselves of and constantly make dua’ for our brothers and sister in Syria and all over the world. A friend of mine was at that refugee camp a while ago with the Human Relief Foundation. Help out as much as you can insha Allah, there is the Syrian Winter Blankets Appeal, or the Syria Appeal at Islamic Relief¬†for example where you can donate. Or as featured here before there’s also Syria Relief a charity founded by Syrians, registered Charity in the UK, dedicated to do ground work in Syria to support families and individuals.

Parkour

There you go my favourite videos of the week or the recent day and couple of hours. First time embedding a tweet, let’s see if I find some more interesting ways to use certain elements that I haven’t used yet.

Wa Salam,
Abdur-Rahman

Videos? Love em’ XI

Here’s the eleventh edition of “Videos? Love em'”. I should say that as I embark on this year long journey of writing, it may happen that certain posts will appear on different days, I will however always endeavour to write something new everyday of this year inshaAllah.

Islam

I found this video on my search for the saying mentioned at the end, by Imam Abu Hanifah rah.

To deem a thousand disbelievers Muslim is better with God than to deem one Muslim a disbeliever.

Videos? Love em’ IX

Salam,

Sorry about the last few days more about that later though, first let me present this weeks videos.

Islam

under 10 minutes:
RISTalks Short: “Be Human” by Imam Suhaib Webb

RISTalks Short: “You and I are not qualified for those debates” by Ustad Nouman Ali Khan at RIS 2012

Over 10 minutes:
Prophet Muhammad’s (S) Love For Us – Sheikh Bilal Assad

Youtube

OFFLINE

Offline is a short disaster comedy film that takes the very real threat of losing your internet connection and treats it like it’s the actual end of the world.

Shortfilms

As I’m getting a camera soon, I’ve been somewhat obsessed with videos about cameras and being interested in what cameras and lenses people used for their videos, more so than before. This video is shot with a canon 550D and a¬†Sigma 18-200 II and a Helios 44m 58mm f2. I’m going to have the 600D inshaAllah, and I already have the ¬†Helios lens from a SLR camera that I got very cheap, what’s missing is an adapter so I can use it on the DSLR.

Motion Graphics

Parkour

Of course I’m going to be partial to this new video, from the group I train with (but haven’t properly, for almost half a year now :/ )

Videos? Love em’ VII

Salam,

this week one video has been particularly¬†controversial, sparking both negative criticism and praise primarily amongst the youth in the Muslim Community in the West (America). I’m of course talking about the Somewhere in America Video by Sheikh Bake, that’s been making it’s rounds on various social media networks.

I’m not going to give you my opinion on it, or go into the nitty gritty of it. I commend the conversation it sparked (a conversation I think should largely be held by the sisters )¬†and to echo the words of a few brothers, we as Males need to keep our eyes lowered as the Quran commanded it from us.

May Allah swt. Guide us all to the straight path. Amin.

Let’s carry on!

Islam

under 10 minutes

I watched the full lecture a few months by, think it was during Ramadhan, but very relevant. The bed rock of our society is the family unit, its breaking is one of the major reasons for the collapse of our Communities.

Over 10 minutes

About loving, not paying lip service…

This is the Identity for next years Pausefest 2014 in Melbourne.

Pause Fest is a springboard for creative industries that operate within the digital realm to meet, inspire, learn, launch and collaborate. Our ambition is to enable creative collaborations around the globe and to promote digital culture as the focal point of an annual festival.

 

Youtube

I’m a huge fan of Aamer Rahman since discovering him about 2 years ago. I was rather upset when his show was cancelled in Bradford last year.

A very interesting experiment!

Short-Films

Throughout the whole short, I couldn’t stop the video, I was totally unsure whether I should take this serious as proper workmanship or not. People do strange things for a living and I know there will be some people who would pay for it.

Don’t forget our Muslim brethren in Myanmar, may Allah swt. help them.

 Parkour

 

That’s it for this week folks.

Wa Salam,

Abdur-Rahman

Videos? Love em’ VI

Another week, more favourites! Let’s get right into it.

Islam

under 10 minutes:

This time a difficult decision based on the fact that I haven’t had much time this week so I’ve watched more videos under 10 minutes.

1. That’s not how you call people to good!

“Brother Nouman Ali Khan explains beautifully that Dawah has Ethics too!”

2. Legacy of Islam in China

In this video we are told a little bit about our lost history in China. The hui Muslims have always fascinated me, once I found out that there was a Muslim Chinese admiral leading a fleet of ships way bigger than that of Columbus.

Over 10 minutes:

Motion Graphics

Part of the television series “The Revolution will be Televised” and animated by Sweet Crude.

My second favourite, has a very smooth animation and like a commenter said has the design by apple feel. I just like it.

YouTube

It is once again a shortfilm by PJ Liguori, which has captured this spot. A story about how he writes stories.

Short-films

Big Man is an interesting short film, about how seemingly innocent actions through the eyes of a child can have serious consequences. I laughed at the point where the TV shut off and the boy moaned NEPA (National Electric Power Authority) as I understand though it has been dissolved for a while now. My last trip to Nigeria was a long time ago, during my second year at school. We went for 6 months so I did get to experience a bit of Nigerian life. InshaAllah soon again.

Ghost Town, was surprising to me. The style of the video is very different from what I expected, what I’m used to from most Sports related videos.

Parkour

Esprit es-tu la? Asks where the original spirit of Parkour has gone, where 99% of all videos devolve to showing off instead of community building, instead of mental and physical training in foreground. I guess that is why I wanted to get involved in it, the final push into training was this video below.

Wa Salam,

Abdur-Rahman
