1. Books on Islam for English Speakers

    sayingsofthesalaf:

    pearlsofislam:

    For English Speakers throughout the world it can often be difficult to access authentic sources of knowledge, however there remains a wealth of information at our fingertips if our resources are utilized properly.

    Below is a compilation of books recommended by the noble scholars of Islam such as Shaykh Al Islām ibn Taymīyyah, Shaykh Nasir ud Dīn al-Albāni, Shaykh ‘Abd al-Azīz ibn Bāz, Shaykh Muhammad ibn Sālih al-Uthaymīn, and others. These books address the fundamentals of Islam and are readable; explanations are provided for those that require an in-depth study. The PDF and online links are provided below for the books available, however if possible I highly recommend purchasing them as well.

    May Allaah guide us all, increase us in knowledge, and enable us to implement that which we learn, Allaahumma Ameen. Kindly reblog and share so that others may benefit Inshaa’ Allaah.

    My thing is up yay

    "Asking for Vertical Flexing and Creating Softness In Your Horse"

    oh the weird camera move towards the end is because my camera decided to stop recording for some reason so I had to awkwardly re-do the end.

    Definitely a good video for any rider who’s wondering how to properly get their horse to flex. Although each horse is different, this is such a good way to start it with your horse!

    When I tell people about my plans to go abroad, I almost always get the same response: “Wow, you’re so lucky! I wish I could do that.”

    First, I’m not lucky, I’ve just worked super hard for this. To an embarrassing degree, actually.
    Second, anyone can travel the world!…

Let’s begin.
MOST HORRIFIC EVP EVER RECORDED: In January 2007, the Central New York Ghost Hunters investigated an old hotel in upstate New York. According to them it was the most active ghost hunt. After they investigated the tape they discovered some startling material: the voices of men and women not present as well as a women being attack. There’s a lot more information, just click on the link and listen. 
AUDITORY HALLUCINATIONS: It was designed to provide the listener with some understanding of what it might be like to experience auditory hallucinations. Content in this presentation is based on things clients told a mental health outreach worker. 
JONESTOWN DEATH TAPE: An audio recording made on November 18, 1978, at the Peoples Temple compound in Jonestown, Guyana immediately preceding and during the mass suicide and murder of over 900 members of the cult.
THE INTERROGATION CHAMBER 3D AUDIO: A 3D audio is one in which it feels like it’s happening RIGHT in front of you. This is an audio recording that contains violent material of a rough interrogation. 
THE ORIGINAL NIGHT STALKER: The Original Night Stalker is the name given to an unidentified serial killer and rapist who murdered at least ten people in Southern California from 1979 through 1986. This is a recording on one of the victim’s answering machine.
SOUNDS OF SPACE: Space maybe mostly empty but boy it creates some horrific sounds. 
MOCK ACTIVATION OF A NUCLEAR ATTACK: So this is what the end of the world sounds like
THE BLOOP: A mysterious sound from the bottom of the deep ocean. Some say it was gigantic sea creature but scientists speculate it was a large iceberg scraping the ocean floor.
OPERATION WANDERING SOUL:  Also known as “Ghost Tape Number 10” was an audio mix the US military used for psychological operations in the Vietnam War against the North Vietnamese. It played deeply on the Vietnamese belief of ancestor worship, spirits and the afterlife.
RED FOX SOUNDS: What did the fox say? Something I don’t want to hear in the middle of the night. 
BONUS: This has been going around tumblr, but if you haven’t already, listen to the Spongebob Squarepants theme song slowed down by over 800%

Here’s a full example of what you might hear during a nuclear attack.

Numbers Stations are some of my favorite things to listen to and creep myself out.
