DC’s New Batman, Brave and Bold or just plain stupid?
With James Gunn now in charge of the new DC Extended Universe and him revealing the outline of part one of the new slate of DC films which is meant to revamp the DCEU and which contains a brand new Batman movie called The Brave and The Bold questions have been asked of whether DC has learned the lessons of the past or are they just repeating the same old mistakes?…

Waiting to knock on Junnah’s door
I’ve decided to write another nasheed about the current situation in Palestine……………
As every Liverpool fan all over the world is now beginning to recover from the mad celebrations of Sunday’s dramatic late win, in which goalkeeper Alisson Becker scored a 94th minute winner to give The Reds all three points away at West Brom to keep their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League alive, I wanted to just give my own personal thoughts on the goal and that moment in general…..
So on Saturday 9th May 2021 I woke up to the absolutely heart breaking news about our brothers and sisters in Palestine. The night before (Friday 8th May 2021) Masjid Al-Aqsa was stormed by Israeli terrorist soldiers while taraweeh prayers were being performed. These soldiers had no reason to be there other than to cause trouble. Israel will spin this and say it was an act of self defence but the pictures tell a completely different story……..
Liverpool Football Club, Premiere League Champions! Ah that feels good to say and as fans begin to celebrate Liverpool’s triumph the reality of the Reds ending the 30 year drought for a league title is beginning to sink in. While emotions and feelings are running high and for some may be a little too much to handle the fact is that this is more than just Liverpool becoming champions of England, this means so much more to so many of us……….

The Hypocrisy of apartheid in the media
As South Africa won the Rugby World Cup last Saturday for the third time in the country’s history there was one overriding headline I kept hearing again and again from the worlds media and that was how “this story transcends sports and has helped unify the country”……
Disproving the myths about Muslim women
It seems nowadays the religion of Islam is becoming more and more under the spotlight within western society, whether it’s because people are generally curious about what the religion offers or because people have been brainwashed into believing that Islam is a barbaric religion that has no place in the modern world, either way talking about Islam within the western world can often be perceived as rather controversial…..

Batman: Reviving The Dark Knight
