Help Mass Produce 'Harry Potter' CD was created by troid.ca admin
In an effort to propogate the lecture, \"The Evils of Harry Potter and the Kufr of Magic\" , we have developed a plan to have 2000 of the 2-CD sets produced and distributed freely for the benefit of the Muslim communities throughout the english-speaking world.

A breakdown of the expense for this project is pending (watch this thread).

Hello Umar,

Thank you for your email message and quote request via our website. It would be a pleasure to provide you with our costs for your project. I do have one question, would you require us to print a front insert for the double CD Jewel case and do you require us to assemble. The following would be our cost with front insert and assembly costs but you may take these costs off if you do not require them:

DISC 1 - 1000 units - CD Manufacturing: $800.00 CAD plus applicable taxes
Includes: Setup, artwork processing, digital proof, film, screens, glass mastering, FULL process colour silk screening on white basecoat on custom manufactured standard sized CDs (max data capacity of 650 MB).

The above costs are based on you providing us with art work formatted to our templates and specifications. Along with a workable master CD and a completed Replication Rights Form which needs to be forwarded to our North York location for production.

Aside from shipping cost, there should be no other costs associated with this project. If you wish to proceed, please confirm the above options. We manage all our projects using an internal docket system. Once I have your approval to move forward, I will create an online account for you and send you log-in information. Once you are logged in, you will have access to our invoicing stage, where you will be able to approve and process your payment online and upload your artwork onto the provided templates. Please note that the turnaround time would begin from your signed digital artwork approval and full payment.
If you have additional questions to the above quote, please feel free to forward them to my attention. I look forward to hear from you and to work with you on this project soon.

Thank you,

Insha'Allaah, we hope so. So far, no one has come forward to fund the project, Islamic centres and private individuals alike can chip in a portion, so for example, if your local masjid wanted 50, they could pay for 50 (at cost) etc.

It is a good project but so far, there hasn't been any interest.

As salāmu alaykum,

I must say that it is a good project and I listened to the mp3. JazakAllaahu khayran akhee Mūsá and troid. Shaykh Mūsá as Allamaah Ubayd called him gave the correct daleel when he said that we prevent our kids from watching immorality on TV which is a sin while we don't prevent them from reading about magic which is disbelief. La hawla wa la quwat illa billaah.

Perhaps the cost quoted is a bit too high. InshAllaah if these CDs are produced in India or one of the other Asian countries the rates would be less. InshAllaah if one of the Salafī brothers in India, Pakistan,etc. can check the rates, I believe even including the shipping cost it will be cheaper.

Allaahu aalam.

Wa 'alaykumus Salaam,

Barakallaahu Feek akhee Sajid for that valuable feedback. We would be interested in production overseas if the price is better (including shipping/import taxes to Canada).

In addition to the kufr of magic contained in the Potter series, as if it wasn't horrible enough, one of the main characters is gay. So not only are children being exposed to magic posed in a good light, the main influence of Potter was a homosexual character of whom the author said it was pretty obvious he was.

Amazingly, we got this response from one Muslim about the lecture on Potter,

Salaams,

Really, you people, get a life. If you want to know about black magic, visit somewhere like Morocco. (And inshaAllah, in practising Muslim families, your children wont be exposed to its truly evil effects.)

The magic in \"Harry Potter\" is purely fictional. Waving a wand and saying a few abracadabras isn’t going to hurt anyone, and isn’t going to take your children away from Allah s.w.t.

At least JKRowling has got children reading again, a tradition that was dying out. And what were children doing when they weren’t reading? They were watching TV. The average American child watches something like 5 hours of TV a week.

Why don’t you have a lecture on the harm that TV does to children? They learn nothing, brain cells die (tests have been done to prove this), and even if the show itself is something harmless, children are still exposed to advertising. I really think you need to get your priorities right.

And please unsubscribe me from this mailing list (which a friend subscribed me to because she thought I would be interested). I'm fed up with having to delete your campaigns.

Thank you.

Wassalam,



It just goes to show how negligent the Muslims have become with regards to what their children read, listen to and spend their time in.


J.K.'s gay ol' time
Defends outing Dumbledore
By VIVIAN SONG

Little Emily Cooper fixes her blue eyes on an invisible point in the distance, scratches her chin, and with a perplexed expression asks, \"What does gay mean?\"

The child's just been asked what she thinks about her favourite author, J.K. Rowling, outing the almighty wizard Albus Dumbledore as a gay man, and looks ponderously at the interviewer.

Mom and dad may have some 'splaining to do.

When the author of the Harry Potter series dropped the bombshell at New York's Carnegie Hall last Friday that the Hogwarts headmaster was gay, collective gasps of surprise and triumphant I-told-you-sos erupted the world over, causing a stir that continued to reverberate yesterday in Toronto, where Rowling made her only Canadian stop on a book tour.

She knew \"early on\" that Dumbledore was gay, \"probably before the first book was published,\" a demure Rowling told reporters before reading to fans at the International Festival of Authors. She spent seven years writing before the first instalment in the series went to print in 1997.

\"The characters came more and more into focus as I worked, and I can't honestly say there was a moment when I decided that,\" she said. \"It's just something I knew or came to know.\"

Rowling is a quiet presence. She is genteel in manner and attire, her mahogany shirt-dress and knee-high boots sedate but sharp. Rarely does she break out from her slightly crooked smile. But when hammered by a deluge of media questions about Dumbledore's sexual orientation she becomes visibly exasperated.

The big question: Why now, after the seven-book series is over, is she outing him?

\"Because I was asked a direct question at Carnegie Hall,\" she said simply.

Moved by the teen's personalized question about Dumbledore's love life, Rowling said she felt compelled to come clean, saying her own revelation was also \"quite freeing.\"

\"I answered honestly. I suppose the other half of the answer is that Dumbledore's ill-fated infatuation was a key part of the plot of Book 7.\"

The wizard was smitten with his rival Gellert Grindelwald, and blind love became his demise.

\"It would certainly never be news to me that a brave and brilliant man could love another man,\" Rowling said.

Outing Dumbledore also helped one audience member confront his own sexuality, she said, as he \"came out\" that same night.

\"It is what it is. He's my character, and as my character I have the right to ... say what I say about him.\"

Rowling is clearly airing her political views, said Mavis Reimer, Canada Research chair in the culture of childhood at the University of Winnipeg.

\"I think it's about making a political statement on the varieties of human sexuality that would be regarded as progressive,\" Reimer said.

While Rowling has said her books champion tolerance, Reimer points out the covert contradiction between inclusion -- the many cultures that are represented -- and exclusion throughout the series.

\"I think, on a covert level, there's an emphasis on chosenness which is problematic,\" she said, referring to Harry being marked as the \"chosen one\" from the start.

\"If you look at the explicit level of the series, there's no doubt she works for inclusivity. I would see this sexual outing of Dumbledore as another way she's working at being inclusive.\"

Rowling may write a Potter encyclopedia and, though unlikely, she didn't rule out writing a prequel to the series.

\"I miss it, I really miss the world. But it's healthy, like the breakup of a marriage, not to see each other and then be friends afterwards,\" she said.

Fan Vincent Jacob-Ferland, 14, came from New Brunswick to see Rowling, and shrugged casually when asked about the Dumbledore revelation, saying: \"It's just his choice. It doesn't affect the story.\"

It's not necessary that just one person transcribe the entire lecture. Perhaps a few brothers can join together and opt to transcribe the 1st 10 minutes,someone else might opt to transcribe the Q&A section at the end or the last 10 mins...
