The unanimous agreement of the Council of Senior Scholars on acting and depicting the Sahaabah (may Allaah be pleased with all of them ), as follows:

1.(a) Allaah (may He be glorified and exalted), praised the Sahaabah and affirmed their high status.
1.(b) Presenting the life story of #any one of them in the form of a #play or #movie is contrary to Allaah’s praise of them and detracts from the high status and honour that Allaah (may He be exalted), granted them.
2.(a) Depicting any one of them may expose them to mockery and belittling by people who for the most part are #not righteous and are far #removed from piety and Islaamic conduct in their public lives.

Was speaking to @videhi ( and god, it's good to chat w/someone in EdTech who is grounded in Practice!).

We got talking about resources for beginners who want to get a quick intro into turning physical play objects, games and Educational tools to digital products.. [1/n]
w/out losing the kinesthetic aspect.

As part of the MIT Media Lab initiative, I ran a workshop on Designing for Creative Learning and this is a topic we touched on briefly. I noticed this helped the group get a handle on the topic quickly. These are the resources I used: [2/n]
1. It helps to have Constructionism at the center of your understanding of the topic. And yes, a wiki article is deep enough for beginners: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Construct… [3/n]

#Thread #Tips for #HomeSchool #Teachers - (Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

🤦🏽‍♀️Keep #children on the #schedule they use on a regular school day. Wake up times, school timetable and bed times.

🤦🏽‍♀️Ensure they complete activities within the time given for the session on the time table
🤦🏽‍♀️Allow the free time only during the day based on the timetable and let them do a fun activity of their choice.

🤦🏽‍♀️They will #manipulate you by saying they are hungry or want to sleep but at school there are specific times for eating and rest time.
🤦🏽‍♀️ They WILL want to go to the bathroom many times, especially when working on a subject/topic they do not like or don’t understand or if something else interests them. You will have to use your discretion with this.

🤦🏽‍♀️Create a space for to work - quiet with little distraction

On defining #creativity @rexjung :

Distinct from #intelligence – a superhighway; #creativity as a slow meandering process down dirt road / side road

Must be both #novel and @useful – beyond simple #utility – something #new within a social context. Unexpected links ✨🤓✨

The capacity to compartmentalize may be an overlooked important psychological construct with positive implications for subjective #wellbeing #ThursdayThoughts
It may be related to the capacity for #play, one of the most under-appreciated activities to enhance subjective #happiness & adaptation.

Wow. I'm blown away by the response! I want to echo the point that has been made about how long somebody has played being irrelevant, whether its 20 years, 10 years, or 5 months. I've played with many women and girls over the years and have loved having them at my table!

I really don't understand the push back. I don't understand the comments I see about girls not being "real nerds" or only playing bc their boyfriend plays or they want cosplay likes or whatever. It's all nonsense. Is it so hard to believe that girls play because they WANT to? smh

Went to Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan today. Official population at 53,967, according to @UNHCR as of February 2018. All Syrian #refugees.

In many ways it was not what I expected.
First thing you notice is how remote the location is — some 100 kms east of Amman; 20 kms from Azraq town; 75 kms to Saudi Arabia; 255 kms to Iraq; and 90 kms to the Syrian border — from which its inhabitants fled.
At the same time, the harshness of the setting — a hardscrabble, sprawling 15 square km patch, scratched, etched and stretched out of endless rolling desert.

The perimeter was equally formidable, with security fencing, official patrols, check points and razor wire.
