#8 | Things I Learnt This Week (That I Want To Share) #8

1. LAW | SYARIAH | HUDUD

This is an excellent quote. 
"I have said this before and I wish to say it again: God’s laws are perfect, but when men are called to draft the laws and push them through the legislative process, then they become man’s laws. This means that we as a civilised community must scrutinise and deliberate these man-made laws carefully before allowing them to come into effect. We owe it to Muslims to craft laws that are just and that can be implemented fairly, and to do that, we cannot exclude the community from providing their views.
...
Never again must we be led like sheep by those who use God’s name to hide their own incompetence and ignorance."
The price of a human life - Zaid Ibrahim

2. SEX | EDUCATION | RAPE

Understanding the concept of informed consent before engaging in sex, using tea as an analogy.

Sex, consent, tea

3. PRODUCTIVITY

Priming yourself for great work.
"The “Meez,” as professionals call it, translates into “everything in its place.” In practice, it involves studying a recipe, thinking through the tools and equipment you will need, and assembling the ingredients in the right proportion before you begin. It is the planning phase of every meal—the moment when chefs evaluate the totality of what they are trying to achieve and create an action plan for the meal ahead."
