  1. As a Latin American living in Latin American, we will not accept Latinx since it’s a gringo invention our inclusive language is latine with the e on the end . 2) we are not Hispanic many of us will never accept the term Hispanic it reminds us of our colonization

  2. I identify as an AMERICAN. CUT THE BULLDOO DOO. Don’t HYPHENATE ME. I was born here raised here and love my USA. Now if your from somewhere else, go ahead and hyphenate yourself, but don’t throw me in that mix.

  3. I hate latinx it’s a stupid word and it’s an offensive word. I’m Latino and it’s not are problem that your parents didn’t teach Spanish and didn’t teach you the culture but don’t go make up a word that we in the Latin community do not like. I guess I’m just say I speak spanishx.


    When I was growing up nobody said I'm a Catholic American I'm a Jewish American I'm an Irish American I'm African-American I'm anything American we were simply ALL AMERICANS!!!

    THIS is one of the MANY big problems today! EVERYBODY wants to think that they are so unique and so special, THE SICK TWISTED EGO CENTER FOCUS OF ME, ME, ME, LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME…

    THIS keeps us in separate camps…

    Most people don't want to accept the FACT that we ALL came from a line of people, starting with Adam, that GOD formed from the dirt and Eve that GOD formed from Adam's rib… WE SHOULD BE THE MOST HUMBLE AND THANKFUL PEOPLE ON EARTH!!!

  5. The Messenger of God entered the 8th year of the Migration with the death of Zaynab, his daughter.
    Zaynab was the first daughter of the Messenger of God from his marriage with Hazrat Khadija. It is strange that all of the sons of our Prophet except Ibrahim died before the advent of Islam and when they were very young but all of his daughters were alive when he became a prophet. All of his daughters except Fatima died when he was alive. Hazrat Fatima lived only six months after the death of the Messenger of God due to her sorrow.   
    Zaynab was born when the Messenger of God was thirty years old.[1]She believed in God together with her mother, Khadija. Zaynab was about ten years old when the Prophet was given the duty of prophethood. 
    Zaynab’s husband, Abu’l-As b. Rabi was the son of Hala, Khadija’s sister. Their marriage took place due to the wish of Khadija.
    Abu’l-As had not become a Muslim yet when he married Zaynab. However, the Messenger of God did not object to her marrying Abu’l As because there was not a decree sent by God prohibiting such kind of a marriage at that time.[2]
    Although the Messenger of God migrated to Madinah, Zaynab, the beloved daughter of the Prophet, had to stay in Makkah. However, divine mercy helped Zaynab by making Abu’l-As be taken prisoner by Muslims at the Battle of Badr. When the Messenger of God released Abu’l-As without asking for any ransom, Abu’l-As sent Zaynab to Madinah near her father when he arrived in Makkah in return for the Prophet’s favor.
    In the 7th year of the Migration, Abu’l-As came to Madinah and became a Muslim. Thereupon, the Messenger of God married Zaynab off to him again without any mahr.[3]
    When Zaynab died, the Messenger of God, whose heart was full of affection and mercy, took off his sash and gave it to the women washing her dead body to use it as a part of her shroud. He led her janazah prayer himself.[4] Then, he went into the grave dug for her thoughtfully and sorrowfully. After staying there for a while, he went up happily and said, “I thought of the weakness of Zaynab and prayed God to alleviate the troubles and the heat of the grave for her; and He accepted my prayer.”[5]
    The Messenger of God put Zaynab into the grave with the gurney on which she was being carried; then, he placed her into the grave with help of Abu’l-As b. Rabi, Zaynab’s husband. 

    The Cause of her Death

    While Zaynab was migrating from Makkah to Madinah in a kind of chair on a camel, two Qurayshi polytheists hit her with a spear and she fell on a rack at a place called Dhu-Tuwa. This incident caused her to suffer a miscarriage. She got ill due to loss of blood. This illness is mentioned as the cause of her death.[6]

  6. Hispanic Heritage month starts half way through the month???…I am not on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, but I noticed the news outlets (including Amazon) starting the celebrations halfway through the month. Is it just me? Regardless, this is not really important, just wondering….But I have noticed every few years I am classified as something different. Whatever, I am what I am.

  7. Guysss stop. You all need to take an anthropology class and realize you’re all just dividing yourselves from other humans further. We’re all the same no matter what man made culture you believe in. This is coming from a Hispanic, latina, Mexicana, whatever I and anyone else chooses to identify me as. It’s all redundant.

    And then you picked the whitest girl to highlight the most about her tiktok? Dale.
