A Purposive Interpretation May Not Be Liberal and Generous

The wheels of justice move slowly. So slowly sometimes, that their conclusion occurs after all practical considerations for the parties are finished. The Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in R. v. Poulin is an example of this, with the defendant passing away within four months of the Court granting leave for appeal. In case you were wondering, he did not have the opportunity to file his factum. Prior to his demise, the Crown had unsuccessfully sought to bring a motion to suspend the execution o...

He Catches Me When I Fall: A Journey To Tawakkul

While discussing an emotionally-heavy issue, my therapist brought up the point that in life we can reach a point of acceptance in regards to our difficult issues: “It sounds cliche, but there’s no other way to say it: it is what it is.” ”Okay, I thought, as I listened. Acceptance. Yes, I can do this eventually. She went on to add: “It is what it is, and I know that everything will be okay.”” Tears had already been flowing, but by this point, full-blown sobs started. “I…can’t….seem…to ever…believ...

Cleaning Out Our Own Closets This Ramadan: Bigotry

Before Muslims take a stand against xenophobia in the U.S., we really need to eradicate it from our own community. There. I said it. There is no nice way to put it. Muslims can be very intolerant of those outside their circles, particularly our Latino neighbors. How do I know? I am a Latina who came into Islam almost two decades ago, and I have experienced my fair share of stereotypes, prejudice, and just outright ignorance coming from my very own Muslim brethren. And I am not alone. My own fami...

Optimism in Times of Adversity: How The Prophet Did It

by Shaykh Abdullah Waheed A man passed by al-Miqdaad ibn al-Aswad , one of the most distinguished Companions of the Prophet . The man said, “How lucky your two eyes that witnessed the Prophet ”. Ibn al-Aswad profoundly responded by saying, Why should anyone wish to witness a scene that Allah did not wish him to see? He does not know what it would have been like if he had witnessed it or which party he would have been among if he went back in time. By Allah! Allah’s Prophet saw people who were t...

Now, after hearing news of his wife’s death, and that his children – Yusuf now nine, and Zahra, five – are being held by jihadists in the last corner of the terror group’s lands, Bashir travels to Iraq in the hope of crossing the border into Syria and rescuing them.

The West Asian nations (Saudi Arabia, Iran) are tough, rugged and play a fairly physical game, while those from further east (China, South Korea) are quick, technical and extremely clever at controlling the tempo in games. Then there are teams like India, Kyrgyzstan, Philippi...

Manchester United fans fuming at one player after losing to Man City

Matic was at fault Manchester United were not at their best as they lost 3-1 to Manchester City. It was a huge loss, and one that Jose Mourinho will not enjoy. Missing Paul Pogba is all well and good, but United need to be doing far better. Not only that, but some of their players came in for particular criticism. Nemanja Matic was one of those players. After being at fault on more than one occasion, not to mention generally slowing play down and being far less than the player Man United needed...

Liverpool fans think one man has been key in their Champions League success
