I only read 4 farz for Isha prayer, is that ok?

queenfoisback answered:

Isha is 4 rukahs fardh (for the obligatory), if you want to do extra you can do 2 rukahs sunnah and you can do witr

Witir is sunnah mu’akadah (highly recommended sunnah) in the Shafi’ fiqh. It is not amongst the 5 daily obligatory prayers.

Meet Arab-style taco salad. The bottom is a layer of tortilla chips, then fava beans and chickpeas, followed by ground beef, sour cream, guacamole, black olives, and shredded cheese. Family members then could choose between picante or  mild salsa to top it off.

That one time in grad school where I rode the bus all the way to my off campus apt super excited to be home after a long day. As soon as I was walking up to my building I got a call from a classmate asking me where I was for our group project meeting.

Pissed off, I turned around, got back on the next bus and had an internal breakdown which I bet was pretty external too if you saw me sitting on the bus seat, slouching, arms crossed, annoyed at the world.

Finally reaching campus, I realized it was raining and my old shoes were letting in water.

So I stopped, took off my shoes and socks and walked barefoot through campus and into my building. I just walked up to my classmates and was like hi. I’m here.

Until the lion has his historian, the hunter will always be the hero.

African Proverb 

This proverb exists in different forms in many parts of Africa

"Until lions have their own historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunter" (Igbo, Nigeria).

"Until lions start writing down their own stories, the hunters will always be the heroes" (Kenya and Zimbabwe).

Black/African history has always being taught/told from the perspective of White American/European colonisers. We need to reclaim our history and culture. No more white African Queens, Kings and Gods, there needs to be a true representation of African history and culture in the media.
