“O Mankind! Most certainly, it is We (God almighty) who have Created you all from a single (pair) of a male and a female. And it is we who have made you into nations and tribes, that ye may recognise each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily, the noblest of you in the sight of Allah is (He who is) the most righteous of you.”
—(Qur’an, Al-Hujurat Surah 49 : verse 13)
“All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over a white - except by piety and good action.”
—(Hadith, Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 7, Ch. 3)

Badass Female Athletes: Samantha Wright
Samantha Wright is a former competitive gymnast but has moved to competitive weightlighting. She was the coach of the USA Gymnastics team for three years, but now trains at Crossfit. She qualified to compete in the Olympics in weightlifting at the national level, so she’s a possible contender in the 2016 games. Her nickname is the Pixie Warrior, which is also pretty badass. She also placed in the top 10 at last year’s USA National Senior Weightlifting Championships. Despite her small stature, she can snatch 145 lbs. and clean and jerk 170 lbs.
“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality.
It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.” - Albert Einstein
DISNEY HAVE STOLEN MY ARTWORK
I don’t know what to do. I am so upset. Can anyone help me?
My painting was created back in 2010, (see it HERE) and since then so many people have expressed their love for it, not just on tumblr, but in many places. At least 9 people had it tattooed on their bodies. It’s one of my favourite images I created at University and I was proud of it in many ways.
I’m so mad because I have no chance at getting Disney to do anything about it. I had so much respect for the company and now I am just SO upset and disappointed.
Any help, advice or signal boosting would be amazing. And thank you so much to the kind person who messaged me about this.
Reblogging for the sake of helping the original artist. Hopefully we can get the message heard by going viral? and perhaps somebody can do something to assist. Best of luck to you Katie~
Wow shit Disney what have you done? I hope this gets sorted and is hopefully a blessing in disguise, allowing your talents as an artist become even more recognised~! <3
Oh my goodness this is lovely
Tashiro-jima (or Tashirojima), 田代島, is a small island in Japan. It has become known as “Cat Island” due to the large stray cat population that thrives as a result of the local belief that feeding cats will bring wealth and good fortune. The cat population is now larger than the human population on the island.
There is a small cat shrine Neko-jinja (猫神社) in the middle of the island, roughly situated between the two villages. In the past, the islanders raised silkworms for silk, and cats were kept in order to keep the mouse population down (because mice are a natural predator of silkworms). Fixed-net fishing was popular on the island after the Edo Period and fishermen from other areas would come and stay on the island overnight. The cats would go to the inns where the fishermen were staying and beg for scraps. Over time, the fishermen developed a fondness for the cats and would observe the cats closely, interpreting their actions as predictions of the weather and fish patterns. One day, when the fishermen were collecting rocks to use with the fixed-nets, a stray rock fell and killed one of the cats. The fishermen, feeling sorry for the loss of the cat, buried it and enshrined it at this location on the island.
There are at least ten cat shrines in Miyagi Prefecture. There are also 51 stone monuments in the shape of cats.
