Revelation and Scriptures Before the Qur’an | The Qur’an Series

“All the teachings contained in the former Scriptures that were meant to be of lasting value and importance are included in the Qur’an. The Qur’an also gives some specific accounts, although selective, of what the pre-Qur’anic scriptures contained and it is worthwhile to look briefly at this material” Continue reading

What do you call a Brown Guy with a Beard? by Umer Sultan

Ever wondered what a Brown guy with a Beard is called? This question arose after an incident that took place. Before anything, I know it is a little long post, so please bear with me because it is a very important issue. Also share it with others so that the discussion gets into the other communities!

So few months back my brother and I came to the realization that it is obligatory wajib (command) on Muslim men to have beard. I know many brothers will jump on me and ask me century old questions, and I will inshallah (God-Willing) address those in some future posts, this one decision changed our outward appearance and taught many different lessons.

Change in our outward appearances resulted in the change of how people perceive us. Different people were asking me questions about why I am not shaving, what does it represent? Is beard the tribal pride or something? Of course there were some Muslim brothers who were supportive of this, many thanks to them for being there and more importantly to Allah Ta’ala for giving me the company of such friends.

I really like when people are eager to learn and they ask me questions. So I was happy that people were asking me questions that they would not ask such questions before but there were some others who resort to passing out judgement.

Another look at the attack on Coptic Church in Egypt by Dawud Walid

By Dawud Walid| Source

This morning, I received an e-mail from an Arab-American Christian colleague that is currently in Egypt now.  This is some of what she stated:

Marvelous emotion churning in ones soul,
Close companions a sweet fragrance,
Ones in the distance like coal,

Giving birth to ambition,
