hungarian: “this is the end, run away with it” (itt a vége, fuss el véle)
turkish: “lastly, three apples fell from the sky; one for our story's heroes, one for the person who told their tale, and one for those who listened and promise to share. And with that, they all achieved their hearts' desires. Let us now step up and settle into their thrones.” (Gökten üç elma düşmüş; biri onların, biri anlatanın, diğeri de dinleyenlerin başına. Onlar ermiş muradına, biz çıkalım kerevetine.)
عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ، وَعَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ " مَا يُصِيبُ الْمُسْلِمَ مِنْ نَصَبٍ وَلاَ وَصَبٍ وَلاَ هَمٍّ وَلاَ حُزْنٍ وَلاَ أَذًى وَلاَ غَمٍّ حَتَّى الشَّوْكَةِ يُشَاكُهَا، إِلاَّ كَفَّرَ اللَّهُ بِهَا مِنْ خَطَايَاهُ ". صحيح البخاري ومسلم حديث (٥٦٤١،٥٦٤٢) - ٢٥٧٣
Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri and Abu Huraira: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "No fatigue, nor disease, nor sorrow, nor sadness, nor hurt, nor distress befalls a Muslim, even if it were the prick he receives from a thorn, but that Allah expiates some of his sins for that." Sahih al-Bukhari 5641, 5642 In-book reference : Book 75, Hadith 2 USC-MSA web (English) reference : Vol. 7, Book 70, Hadith 545
Sahih Muslim 2573 In-book reference : Book 45, Hadith 66 USC-MSA web (English) reference : Book 32, Hadith 6242
(ما يصيب المسلم من نصب) تعب (ولا وصب) مرض أو مرض دائم ملازم (ولا هم) بفتح الهاء وتشديد الميم (ولا حزن) بفتحتين ولغير أبي ذر ولا حزن بضم فسكون. قال في الفتح: هما من أمراض الباطن ولذلك ساغ عطفهما على الوصب انتهى. وقيل الهم يختص بما هو آت والحزن بما مضى (ولا أذى) يلحقه من تعدي الغير عليه (ولا غم) بالغين المعجمة وهو ما يضيق على القلب، وقيل: إن الهم ينشأ عن الفكر فيما يتوقع حصوله مما يتأذى به والحزن يحدث لفقد ما يشق على المرء فقده والغم كرب يحدث للقلب بسبب ما حصل.
وقال المظهري: الغم الحزن الذي يغم الرجل أي يصيره بحيث يقرب أن يغمى عليه والحزن أسهل منه (حتى الشوكة يشاكها) قال السفاقسي: حقيقة قوله يشاكها أن يدخلها غيره في جسده يقال شكته أشوكه قال الأصمعي ويقال شاكتني تشوكني إذا دخلت هي ولو كان المراد هذا القيل تشوكه ولكن جعلها هي مفعولة وهذا يرده ما في مسلم من رواية هشام بن عروة ولا يصيب المؤمن شوكة فأضاف الفعل إليها وهو الحقيقة ولكنه لا يمنع إرادة المعنى الأعم وهو أن تدخل هي بغير إدخال أحد أو بفعل أحد (إلا كفر الله بها من خطاياه). ولابن حبان "إلا رفعه الله بها درجة وحط عنه بها خطيئة" وفيه حصول الثواب ورفع العقاب. إرشاد الساري لشرح صحيح البخاري للقسطلاني

Keep in mind that Musulman is an Eastern Iranian variation of the word Muslim. Pashto and Urdu/Hindu (two languages I speak) use that variation as well due to Persian influence. Persian, Turkish, Kurdish and many other languages also say Musulman. Any other language outside of the Eastern Iranian influence that implemented the use of the word Musulman either imported it due to colonialism or due to Ottoman imperialism. Arabs do not say Musulman, they say Muslim.
Iran voice: u don't know him like I do- you've never even chomped down his thigh u fake fan 😤
Iran prbly had a more complicated relationship with Media that can't really be boiled down into a simple parental relationship- not only did they have other parental/familial figures (like Elam!), what relationship they did have was probably closer to an "older-young sibling" as fellow Iranian tribes more than anything ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Ngl, Iran really resembles Elam both in disposition and their habit of beating up Assyria (Assyria's descendants, in Iran's case 👁👁)
Unfortunately, we have no first hand sources about the Medes and everything we know them is from the writings of other civilizations. They were first mentioned by the Assyrians and often rebelled against their rule, until things went real downhill for the Assyrians and the Medes and other subject states broke away. Things got so bad that the Medes even took over Assyria's old joint as the head honcho (that is, until Iran came into the picture lol)
I myself dont have many opinions or headcanons on Media since I havent really studied the Median Empire too much, but he and Assyria (well, by this time it was Old Assyria's descendants, Assyria, who represents the modern day Assyrian people, and Syria) had a testy relationship, to put it lightly.
The handsome lad Iran's talking to in the second panel is Mister Kurdistan! (I'll post more about him as soon as I get his intro post ready ><) The Medes have been often proposed as a starting point for the Kurdish people, and this view was adopted by many Kurdish nationalists when first put forward in the early 20th century. However, recent evidence has indicated that the Kurds may be no more related to the Medes than other Iranian people groups.

Mehmet, annesi ve eşi ile köyde yaşayan bir delikanlıdır. Bir gün eksik gediği gidermek için alıverişe Diyarbakır’a gider. Tabi o zamanlar araç yok, şehre inen bir kaç günden önce dönemiyor köye. Mehmet ise 2-3 günlük yolu 1 günde gider ve gelir, gece eve varır ve eşinin yatağına girer. Annesi ise oğlunun döndüğünü bilmemektedir. Mehmet'in annesi Sefer ana gece uyanır ve gelininin odasının önünden geçerken gelinini yatakta biriyle görür ve oğlunun döndüğünü bilmediğinden gelininin oğlunu aldattığını düşünür. Eline tüfeği alır ve 2 el ateş eder yataktaki oğlana. Oğlan dönüp son bir defa bakar annesine. Annesi, vurduğunun oğlu olduğunu görünce, göğsünü yumruklayıp bu ağıtı yakar.
It’s Kurdish Language Day today. A language that has been banned & criminalised, is denied any public infrastructure like mother tongue education in schools, is invisible in all curricula, and can only be studied from below in self-organised classes.
Keeping Kurdish alive, in music, literature, private classes, media, academia (and all of this self-organised, from below and in the realms of agency of a non-state nation under constant attack), in itself is an act of anti-colonial resistance.
This day, also a big thank you to all Kurdish teachers out there volunteering and dedicating their time and efforts to disseminate a criminalised and de facto banned language, to fight back the states sponsored loss of identity.
I lost cultures, I lost a whole language, I lost my religion. I lost it all in the fire that is colonization so I will not apologize for owning every piece of me that they could not take, break and claim as theirs.
Two Kurdish girls with pitchers. Zhako, Iraq, on May 11th, 1917.
This photograph was taken during World War I, when the Kurdish nation was promised an independent homeland by the Allied victors. The promise was not kept. But these two girls lived during a brief moment when independent Kurdistan appeared to be approaching.
I wanted to work on my dissertation for a bit today and decided to come to this cafe near my house. I definitely found my new study spot, it's super cozy and has a nice atmosphere. If you live in Cambridge and wanna study at a nice cafe with vegan food then definitely check out stir on Chesterton road.
