January 04, 2020, 01:14:24 am Heba E. Husseyn: Martyrdom is the highest level of victory, higher than battlefield victory.  Inna Lilahey wa Inna Elahe Rajoon.  May The Almighty grant the pious general a wonderful welcome in Jannah. Ameen.

May 30, 2019, 06:15:49 am Zeynab: Alhudulilah, yes sister Ruhi.  Time flies in this fleeting world.  May Allah The Almighty accept our hard work in the permanent world.  That's the real success.
May 30, 2019, 03:43:58 am Ruhi_Rose: Jumaa-tul-widaa (farewell to Ramadan) tomorrow Friday 31.  How time flies!  Ya Allah, keep us close to Your mercy.

The Stampede is not an "event" or a sport.  It's a sick sport and arrant animal abuse. The stress and physical pain suffered by bulls and calves are enormous.  Many of these animals end up with broken bones and ruptured veins / mucles when huge hulking men wrestle with them.  It can be dreadful to watch, I don't know how people can amuse themselves and find it entertaining.  It is absolutely shameful and shocking that humans in the 21st century who're supposed to be living in the world's most "civilized country" have no hesitation subjecting animals to such unimaginable cruelty for the purpose of entertainment.

If such a culture existed anywhere in the Middle-East, Iran, Turkey, Pakistan or Indonesia - the world would be finger-pointing and gossiping about the "creulty on animals" going on in "backward" countries.  But when that sort of backwardness is practiced in North America in full festive gear, it carries a totally different interpretation of upholding traditions of a great civilization. 

The human rights approach of Canada is baffling to say the least.  It talks loud and clear of the importance to being tolerant and humane - and indeed it is on some fronts but others are callously ignored namely rodeos, seal hunt and violence in hockey despite its dangerous consequences on participants .. and all this only for human entertainment.  How astonishing! 

Rodeo is a modern-day gladiator sport, just like the ball hockey brawls.  It should be tabooed in every civilized community.

Thank you for expressing this brother.  I couldn't agree more.  Calgary stampede is a national disgrace.  Such 'sports' must be absolutely abolished in the 21st century.  Canada's humane values are so inconsistent.  You articulated that very well.
