Husainy Recitation Session – Night 1, Sheikh Riyadh al Bawi, Dawood Ashur Husayniya, al Basra, the Republic of Iraq-
Sacred Muharram Night 1, 1438 Hegira, October 2016
There is a great commonality between the sacrifice offered by the son of Adam in the first era of humanity and the sacrifice of Imam Husain, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad, May Allah’s blessings be upon them.
Allah included the story of Adam’s murdered son in His everlasting Divine Book which is read day and night by all Muslims all over the world all over the time.
“Revive our issues.” Ahlul-Bayt recommends. “May Allah pour mercy over those who revive our issues!” They supplicate.
Knowing Ahlul-Bayt is knowing their knowledge, hadiths, and the stories of the oppression they encountered in their lives.
Ahlul-Bayt say: “Study our hadith and teach it to people.”
Ahlul-Bayt urged peots, reporters and writers to report the occurring in their lives in all literary forms possible including historical narration of their stories in the form of poems.
Ahlul-Bayt’s top story is what happened to Imam Husain.
Prophet Muhammad said: “Husain is from me and I am from Husain.”
Habil, son of Adam was killed immediately and murdered alone and his story is divinely kept forever. Then what about Imam Husain story who witnessed the killing of every member of his companions and family? What about the mercy he expressed and emotions he released for every killing he witnessed?!
Review the ugliness of the killing of Habil and the killing if Imam Husain. Review the savagery of the killing against each one. Habil was killed in the first era if humanity- no weapons/ no tools of killings. While when Imam Husain killed, can you imagine what sort of preparation had been there taking place? The army of Yezid fought Imam Husain by all sorts of weapons and killed him by all sorts of weapons! All makers of iron, steel, arrows (moreover poisoned)… had been busy for months making the tools of the killing of Imam Husain.
Sorrow for the loss of Imam Husain burned the hearts of Ahlul-Bayt.
“My grandfather Husain was slaughtered like a sheep! Perhaps slaughtering a sheep would be less savagery. Butcher waters the sheep before slaughtering it. He makes sure he slaughters it in a second of minute without letting it see the knife in his hands. While Imam Husain kept saying:” Thirst..thirst”
Imam Ali son of Husain saw a camel crying. He asked: Has this camel witnessed the killing of her son? Yes, the man answered.
The Imam said this camel is like Laila who witnessed the killing of her son Ali al Akbar.
Imam al Mahdi takes isolation in desert everyday recalling what happened in Karbala scene by scene: “I will cry in the morning and the evening blood instead of tears!”
A poet addresses Imam al Mahdi saying: “How would you forget the sigh of al Zahra behind the door when she was pressed and her sigh when Husain was beheaded and his lips got blue from dryness and thirsty?! How would you forget your uncle al Abbas?! How would forget your aunts who were taken captives over the imposed caliphate states?!

Giants: How to Make a Short Film
by: Joey Korenman – May 14, 2015
Published in 3D, Animation, Cinema 4D, Compositing, Editing, featured, No Downloads
This adventure started with a simple idea.
I was a little bit fed up with the traditional “tutorial” model of teaching that I’d been using for so long. There are enormous limitations that you run into when your teaching format is “one video at a time, one topic at a time.” I found myself jumping through a lot of hoops to justify WHY I was teaching a certain concept.
For example, there is a video on this site that teaches you how to make a cool, abstract 3D effect in Cinema 4D. You could watch that video and extrapolate out some more general skills and techniques if you’re paying attention, but this tutorial may really just be a slightly-more-educational form of entertainment… something you watch on your lunch break.
If my goal is to help train Motion Designers to be more effective, what is the best way to do that?
Well, frankly I don’t have a definitive answer yet. Our Animation Bootcamp program has been getting great results and amazing reviews, but we know it’s not for everyone. Maybe there’s a middle ground between a one-off tutorial video and an intense 6-week interactive program.
The big idea behind “Giants.”
I’ve always wanted to explore the idea of teaching online the way you might learn something at an internship, in the context of a real project with real problems that need to be solved. It’s a nice idea in theory, but there are a couple of big issues that pop-up when you try to do it.
1. Getting permission to show work that was paid for by a client can be tricky.
2. When you work for a client you don’t have time to document every single step.
The only way I could think of to try this in a really in-depth way was to come up with my own project and give myself the time to properly document the process along the way. The result of this experiement is below.
I truly hope that this series inspires and informs you. It was an eye-opener for me, and I’m really proud of how it came out. Check out the episode list below.
Making Giants: The Full Series
01 – The Idea
In the first episode of the series, we start with a blank canvas and no clue what to do with it. When you can make absolutely anything you want, it’s actually really hard to make a decision.
02 – The Edit
Armed with an idea, we now need to flesh the film out to figure out timing, camera angles, pacing, and how the edit will work. Using some simple 3D geometry and some low-res renders, we build up an animatic using Cinema 4D and Adobe Premiere.
03 – The Scene
We have a lot of work to do building the 3D world that this film takes place in. In this episode we head into Cinema 4D to build the low-poly desert environment and begin to play with lighting and texturing.
04 – The Building
While the scene was a bit “organic” and abstract, the building needs to be designed and modeled in a very specific way. We start by gathering some reference images, laying out basic shapes in Adobe Illustrator, and modeling the building in Cinema 4D.
05 – The Plant
The hero of this piece is a flower / plant that has to be able to do a few very specific things. This means the modeling and rigging need to be really precise. In this episode we cover some really cool rigging and animation in Cinema 4D.
06 – The Vines
The vines in the film have to do a bunch of crazy, technical stuff. Stuff that would really be hard to animate by hand. For this task, we’re going to try out an incredible tool called X-particles. It’s a geeky episode that will show you how much R&D some effects can take.
07 – The Details
We’re about to hit the render button and send over 1000 frames into battle. Before we do that, we need to make sure our film is buttoned up properly, tweaking a few things and getting render settings dialed in just right.
08 – The Composite Part 1
We’ve got a bunch of rendered frames! But they aren’t all that pretty to look at yet. There is a ton of work to be done in the “compositing” phase, and we’ll start in one of my favorite apps of all time… Nuke. Learn how to make your 3D renders really sexy.
09 – The Composite Part 2
In this episode we hit “picture lock.” But, before that happens we need to add a little more dazzle to a key shot, and also treat the titles at the end of the film. We use After Effects and a great plugin called Particular to finish off the visuals.
10 – The Sound
Sound can make or break a film. It has an incredibly powerful ability to set mood and tone for your piece, and to help immerse your audience in the world you’ve created. In this episode we go over choosing the right VO talent, sound design, and mixing for non-audio folk.
Tools used in the making of Giants
Adobe Creative Cloud
My career has been built on the back of these legendary apps: Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, and After Effects.
Maxon Cinema 4D
My 3D app of choice, and an incredible Motion Design tool.
Nuke from The Foundry
I love working in Nuke for compositing… I wish I had more excuses to play with it!
If you’re an After Effects artist, you pretty much have to have this and know how to use it.
A REALLY friggin’ cool plugin for Cinema-4D that allowed me to generate the vines in “Giants.”
Killer sound effects library from Video Copilot.
Super affordable and POWERFUL cloud-based render farm.
Interview with Shia Scholar Rebecca Masterton on the End of Times according to Shia teachings.
