Video: Woman Judge in Shariah Court

Shariah is a path towards straight path, towards the path of God. Here Judge Khulood Al-Faqih because of the outdated judicial system, uses Shariah to give rulings. People are quite happy about it, no wonder this video didn’t show up at Fox News, or CNN  or anyother news medium. Check it out!

Having a woman as a judge is permissible according to the Fiqh (Jurisprudence) of Imam Abu Hanifa, one of the 4 great Imams of Islam.

What is Shari’ah? (via Weblog of Dawud Walid)

Shari'ah is a spiritual path towards realizing basic objectives that the Creator wills for man. Dr. Tariq Ramadan defines shar'iah as "a path towards faithfulness."  Shari'ah is NOT a set codex of laws.  Its basic objectives (maqaasid) as defined by Ash-Shatibi are the protection of life, intellect, religious practice, property and posterity. Fiqh/jurisprudence is a vehicle on the path towards actualization (shari'ah).  There are different method … Read More

Save Yourself from Torture – Ita’at ur Rasul

It is reported from Hazrat Abu Musa Ash’ari said that the Holy Prophet stated:

“The example of myself and this religion with which Allah hath sent me to this world is like that man’s who came to a people and said: ‘I have seen an army with my own eyes and I am an open Warner. Save yourself and achieve salvation.’ Then a group of people trusted him and slowly escaped from there and received salvation. And one group of his people falsified him and passed the night in their own houses. As soon as it was morning, an army pounced upon them, killed them and uprooted them totally. So this is the example of myself and the people who follow the religion brought by me, and it is also an example of those people who disobeyed me and falsified the religion brought by me.”

So before the army of the torturers starts torturing, launching an attack at the time of the agony of death, when no aid might come to dispel it, put up the barricades now and secure the borders, the only method of doing, which is to act upon the Holy Prophet’s auspicious ways. It has been clearly said in the above-mentioned Hadith that the people who obey the Holy Prophet are those who follow the truth which he has brought, and not those who claim verbally but their action is contrary to it.

Islam Hijacked & People Brain Washed: In the name of Sufism!

Islam is very simple religion (religion in the non-traditional meaning) and has very simple and clear believes. The problem comes when it the noble teachings of Islam is mixed with customs and traditions of the culture, and when that takes precedence over the teachings brought by the Seal of the Prophethood Muhammad ibn Abdullah (May Allah have mercy on him).   

Below are the freeky pictures from the practises of some mystic (sufi) order Rifai in Jordan that I just received, where they have adopted some major body piercing as a way to celebrate the birth of the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad SAW.   

Oh My Lord, We seek your guidance

 

1st] I am not a scholar in Islam but I know that this is clearly against the teaching of Islam!!! Islam infact condemns hurting oneself, for example hitting or beating oneself, or cutting parts of one’s own body (& others) let alone this kind of body piercing! [Oh Allah show us all guidance Ameen]

Maintenance of Law and Order and Enforcement of Hudud

Section E: Maintenance of Law and Order and Enforcement of Hudud

While the act of surveillance* is supposed to be the duty of every Muslim, this cannot be left as a totally voluntary duty. It is for the government to ensure that a group of persons is effectively engaged in this task on a full-time basis. In either case, the government must take a hortatory role and act as a moral force. It is equally the duty of the government to use its force in order to maintain law and order in the country. The Divine scheme of life as enunciated in the Qur’an and Hadith hates fasad (corruption) and zulm (injustice) in the society.

The frequent mention in the Qur’an that Allah does not like fasad and that Allah does not like zulm and the severe admonitions which the Qur’an associates with these vices make it obligatory for an Islamic state not only to suppress these vices but also to plug all the loopholes that lead one to indulge in them. The term fasad is used in the Qur’an to convey the following meanings: Continue reading

Has the Prayer Lost its Power? by Syed Abul Ala Mawdudi

Syed Abul Ala Mawdudi gave this lecture which has been translated from Urdu into English.

Brothers in Islam! Undoubtedly you often ask yourselves: Why is it that the Prayer, good and beneficial as it is, seems to make no difference to our lives? Why does it neither im-prove our morals, nor transform us into a force dedicated to Allah? Why do we continue to live disgraced and subjugated? The usual answer will be that you are not offering the Prayer regularly or in the manner prescribed by Allah and the Messenger. Such an answer may not satisfy you. I shall therefore try to explain the matter in some detail.

Parable of the Clock

Look at the clock fixed to the wall: there are lots of small parts in it, joined to each other. When you wind it, all the parts start working and, as these parts move, the result appears on the clock face outside it that you observe. Both hands move to denote each second and each minute. The purpose of the clock is to indicate correct time. All those parts, which are necessary for this purpose, have been fitted together and the winding system has been made so that each of them moves as required. Only when all the parts have been assembled correctly and the clock wound up properly will it begin fulfilling the purpose for which it is made.

If you do not wind it, it will not show the time. If you wind it but not according to the prescribed method, it will stop or, even if it works, it will not give the correct time. If you remove some of the parts and then wind it, nothing will happen. If you replace some of the parts with those of a sewing machine and then wind it, it will neither indicate the time nor sew the cloth. If you keep all the parts inside the case but disconnect them, then no part will move even after winding it up. The presence of all the parts will not serve the purpose for which the clock is made because you will have disrupted their arrangement as well as their connection.

In all these situations, both the existence of the clock and the act of winding it become useless, although an observer from a distance cannot say that it is not a clock or that you are not winding it. He will surely consider that it is a clock and will expect it to be useful as a clock. Similarly, when from a distance he observes you winding it, he will take it as a genuine effort on your part to do the job, hoping to notice the result that comes from winding the clock. But how can this expectation be fulfilled when what looks like a clock from a distance has in reality lost its ‘existence’?

Aim of Muslim Ummah

Imagine Islam like this clock. Just as the purpose of the clock is to indicate the correct time, so the aim of Islam is that you should live in this world as the vicegerents of God, as witnesses of God unto mankind and as standard-bearers of truth.
