    رَضُوا بِأَنْ يَكُونُوا مَعَ الْخَوَالِفِ وَطُبِعَ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبِهِمْ فَهُمْ لَا يَفْقَهُونَ
    They prefer to be with women who (are allowed to) stay at home during war, and their hearts are sealed; so they fail to understand.

    “O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort justice or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do.”

    Al-Qur’an 4:135

    Human life on Earth will neither prosper nor enjoy stability unless it is established upon a foundation of justice. All of the sacred scriptures call people to being just. The crux of Islamic law is the realization of justice.

    Allah says:

    “And the word of your Lord has been accomplished in truth and justice; there is none who can change His words, and He is the Hearing, the Knowing.”

    Al-Qur’an 6:115

    All people instinctively crave justice for themselves and despise being oppressed. In spite of this, far too many people treat other people unjustly. Too many people fail to be offended when injustice is perpetrated against their fellow human beings. Continue reading

    This misconception is one of the most widely held misconceptions about Islam today. And yet in the Qur’an, the Creator unambiguously states (translation),

    [17:33] Nor take life – which Allah has made sacred – except for just cause. And if anyone is slain wrongfully, we have given his heir authority (to demand retaliation or to forgive): but let him not exceed bounds in the matter of taking life, for he is helped (by the Law)

    Based on this verse, it is Islamically unlawful to murder anyone who is innocent of certain crimes. It is well to remember at this point the distinction made above between Qur’an and Sunnah, and the Muslims: only the Qur’an and Sunnah are guaranteed to be in accordance with what the Creator desires, whereas the Muslims may possibly deviate. Hence, if any Muslim kills an innocent person, that Muslim has committed a grave sin, and certainly the action cannot be claimed to have been done “in the name of Islam.”

    It should be clear, then, that “Muslim terrorist” is almost an oxymoron: by killing innocent people, a Muslim is commiting an awesome sin, and Allah is Justice personified. This phrase is offensive and demeaning of Islam, and it should be avoided. It is hoped that as the general level of public awareness and understanding of Islam increases, people will keep “terrorism” and “Islam” separate from each other, not to be used in the same phrase.

    13483666365Bilal was a black slave belonging to ‘Umayyah ibn Khalaf. He was tall, thin and slightly hump-backed. Thick grayish hair crowned his head. He moved about silently – speaking only in reply. He was born to two slave parents, making him a slave. He used to travel to ash-Sham for ‘Umayyah’s trading caravan, braving the bitter cold of winter and the extreme heat of summer. His only recompense was a handful of dates each day that he ate to strengthen his body. At his master’s house he would serve the guests while going hungry. He was overworked and mistreated as were ‘Umayyah’s other slaves.

    Bilal would often hear about Muhammad sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and Islam, through the alarming dicussions between his master and guests. Soon he felt drawn to this religion. He would listen to Abu Bakr calling to Islam, and slowly his heart was filled with ‘iman. He went with Abu Bakr to the Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and declared his submission to Islam. This was a daring move from a slave who belonged to a staunch enemy of Muhammad. He was the seventh person to accept Islam. Abu Bakr and others of the same tribal status, were spared from harm by the Quraysh. However, the wrath of the disbelievers fell upon the Muslims who had no tribe to defend them. ‘Umayyah ibn Khalaf used to force Bilal to go outside during the hottest part of the day wearing a suit of armour where he would then be thrown face down in the sand and leave him to bake in the sun. He would not return except to turn him on his back. He owuld have a gigantic rock placed on his chest and then say, “You will stay here until you die or deny Muhammad and worship al-Lat and al-‘Uzzah.” Bilal used to endure this only by saying, “One, One.” Abu Bakr passed by one day while they were torturing him. He said to ‘Umayyah, “Have you no fear of Allah that you treat this poor man like this?” ‘Umayyah replied, “You are the one who corrupted him, so you save him from his plight!” Abu Bakr replied, “Then sell him to me, you can state your price.” ‘Umayyah who was not to let a good deal pass by, sold Bilal, he added, “I would have sold him to you even if you had offered me but an ounce of gold.” Abu Bakr answered, “I would have bought him even if you asked a hundred ounces.” Abu Bakr and Bilal went to the Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam with the good news. There he announed, “I am setting Bilal free, O Messenger of Allah.” This greatly pleased the Prophet sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam not to mention Bilal himself. Continue reading

    Dear shaykh I want to know if all the prophets that Allah send for the mankind performed Haj and if Issa (AS) after his return to Earth will perform Haj? Is there any hadith indicating this?

    untitledTry and add a Sunnah of the prophet ( Pbuh) to your life on the blessing day of Jumah, and during the week days. If you are not using Miswak, try it today. Imam Ahmad narrated from Ibn Umar ( Allah bless them all) that  the messenger of Allah ( pbuh) said: ( make it a habit to perform Miswak, as it is a means of cleaning the mouth and a means of attaining the pleasure of Allah. { Musnad Ahmad , vol. 2, page 438, no. 5869.

    13857.imgcacheSome Muslims and other commentators have identified Dhul Qarnayn with Alexander the Great . But they don’t have any evidence approves their opinion. According to the last holy book( the holy Qura’an) which been revealed to the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), the story of Dhul Qarnayn been mentioned there in a brief expression , the most beautiful style, and an accurate event , shown as a real story without any kind of imagination, contradiction or lying as Allah almighty said ((ويسألونك عن ذي القرنين قل سألوا  عليكم منه ذكراAnd they ask you( you means the prophet Mohammad PBUH) about Dhul Qarnayn ,say: ” I shall recite to you something of his story.” And also said:                                          (إنا مكنا له في الأرض وآتيناه من كل شيء سببا) Verily, we established him in the earth, and we gave him the means of everything.

    Allah the almighty told us in the holy Quran that Dhul Qarnayn had arrived the east and west of the earth and contributed to build the dam of Ya’juj and Ma’juj( Gog and Magog) in a very a wonderful way of  engineering by inspired and success of Allah the almighty.

    His story wasn’t legends or myths and fantasies as some of the commentators said but a true one been mentioned to the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) by Allah the almighty as Allah said in the holy book (إن هذا لهو القصص الحق وما من إله إلا الله وإن الله لهو العزيز الحكيم) Verlily this is the true narrative non has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the one and the only true God, who has neither a wife nor a son. And indeed Allah is the All- Mighty, the All- Wise. Continue reading

    1914_21264698009I invite you to have respect for those people who have the right that they should be respected, those between whom there is an agreement (of protection) for you. For the land in which you are living is such that there is an agreement between you and them. If this were not the case they would have killed you or expelled you. So preserve this agreement, and do not prove treacherous to it, since treachery is a sign of the hypocrites, and it is not from the way of the Believers. And know that it is authentically reported from the Prophet that he said:

    “Whoever kills one who is under an agreement of protection will not smell the fragrance of Paradise.”

    coon_nasa48Allah states in the Qur’an that He has shown the right way to all the nations that have existed throughout the ages and that He has reminded them through His prophets that the world is temporary and that the real abode is the hereafter. Yet, again it is revealed in the Qur’an that most of the people refused to do anything except disbelieve and did not listen to the call of the prophets. Allah, therefore, meted out a harsh punishment to them from unexpected quarters and wiped some of them off the face of the earth.

    One of the most important reasons why past nations are mentioned in the Qur’an is to ensure that the people of today avoid falling into the same error. Assessing the disasters that befell past nations and their archaeological remains merely as historical data without learning any lessons from them would be very wrong. Allah ordered us to take guidance from the calamities that befell these nations: Continue reading

    dsc02791A.J. Toynbee, Civilization on Trial, New York, 1948, p. 205:

    “The extinction of race consciousness as between Muslims is one of the outstanding achievements of Islam and in the contemporary world.  There is, as it happens, a crying need for the propagation of this Islamic virtue.”

    A.M.L. Stoddard, quoted in Islam – The Religion of All Prophets, Begum Bawani Waqf, Karachi, Pakistan, p. 56:

    “The rise of Islam is perhaps the most amazing event in human history.  Springing from a land and a people alike previously negligible, Islam spread within a century over half the earth, shattering great empires, overthrowing long established religions, remolding the souls of races, and building up a whole new world – world of Islam.

    1914_21264697759Reading the title, some people might think of the ‘The Ten Commandments,’ one of the most financially successful  movies and rated as one of the best ten ever.  Or the title might stir the memories of the national debate of putting ‘The Ten Commandments’ on public property and use in public schools that ended in the Supreme Court in 2005.

    Leaving aside the movies and the media, basic facts on Ten Commandments are little known. That is why in the following three articles we will explore what the Ten Commandments are? Who follows them? What is their relevance to (modern) American life? What solutions, if any, do they provide for today’s challenges?

    Let us start with the basics. The Ten Commandments have their origin in the Jewish religion, but they are also found in the Christian Bibles. It is said to be inscribed on two tablets that were given by God to Moses. In the Bible, they are recorded in Exodus 20:2-17 and Deuteronomy 5:6-21. The Exodus list is more commonly accepted by Christians. Encyclopedia Britannica describes them to be a “list of religious precepts that…were divinely revealed to Moses on Mt. Sinai and were engraved on two tablets of stone.” Continue reading
