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

Poem: Beautiful Religion

My friend wrote this short but deep poem about the beauty of Religion. If you like it, please share it and leave a comment.

By Izzedine Boozid

My faith; the essence of my being,
Marvelous emotion churning in ones soul,
Close companions a sweet fragrance,
Ones in the distance like coal,

Theology the mother of purpose,
Giving birth to ambition,

Why are we recognizing Columbus Day? by Dawud Walid

By Dawud Walid| Executive-Director of the Council on American Islamic Relations- Michigan.

I believe in “keepin’ it real,” and I cannot help but question why in the heck are we, in 2010, recognizing Columbus Day in America.

FACT #1: African Muslims reached the Americas prior to Columbus. Columbus even stated in his diary that he spotted a mosque when reaching the so-called New World.

FACT #2: Columbus was not even the first European to have reached America. Ever heard of Leif Ericson who reached the Americas about 500 years before Columbus?

FACT #3: Columbus was trying to reach India; he was LOST when he reached America!

FACT #4: Columbus’ “discovery” in 1492 was sanctioned by the royal family of Spain, the same government that presided over the Spanish Inquisition against Muslims and Jews in 1492.

FACT #5: Columbus’ “discovery” paved the way of European colonial conquest of the Americas and the ethnic cleansing of the Native (not Indian) people.

Based upon these facts especially #5, what were the founders of Columbus Day in America trying to convey?

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

Heart rendering story of a mother and her son

I found this heart rendering story of a mother and her son online. For those who would take heed (myself being the first one) I post it on my blog. –Umer Sultan

My mum only had one eye, I hated her, she was such an embarrassment! She cooked for teachers and students to support the family. There was one day during primary school where she came to say hello to me. I was so embarrassed, how could she do this to me!

I ignored her, threw a hateful look and ran out.

The next day one of my class mates said “Eeww, your mum only has one eye!”
I wanted to bury myself, I also wanted my mum to disappear. So i confronted her and said, “If you’re only going to make me a laughing stock, why don’t you just die!”

My mum did not respond. I didn’t even stop to think for a second about what I had said, because I was full of anger!

I was oblivious to her feelings, I wanted out of that house. So I studied really hard and got a chance to go to Singapore. Then i got married. I bought a house of my own. I had kids of my own and I was happy with my life. Then one day my mother came to visit me. She hadn’t seen me in years and she didn’t even meet her grandchildren!

When she stood by the door my children laughed at her.

I screamed at her, “How dare you come to my house and scare my children! Get out of here now!” And to this my Continue reading

One Nut Pastor That Fooled The World!

So this Pastor Terry Jones in Florida from a church group that was financially and intellectually bankcrupt when announced the “Burn Quran Day” he bacame an instant international figure. Then he called it off to show that he got some leadership! Man got some skills of Public relations…

But lets analyze really quick what just happened by one nut who was blinded in a faith of instant publicity:

– Indonesian President used some harsh language towards US (to appeal its citizens but neverthless).

– Afghans took streets in protest, NATO camp was attacked by mob, a US soldier shot dead an Afghani protestor. All this for total nonesense because of One Nut.

– Mr Imam Feisal Rauf of Cordoba Initiative (aka NYC Cultural Center) according to the Nut Pastor apparently cut a deal with him to move the NYC Cultural Center away from Ground Zero?!?!? Like Seriously !!

– Imam Muhammad Musri, head of the Islamic Society of the Central Florida stood at Pastor Nut’s media conference and said that he feels that the Mosque should not be built near Ground Zero. Interesting because [1st] Its NOT a Mosque, its a freeken Cultural Center. [2nd] A Mosque has been there at that spot for all these years !

– Mr. Nut Pastor Jones can’t even pronounce Imam properly when referring to Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf (with whom he said he cut a deal). He kept referring to Imam Feisal Rauf as “Iman.” Its like calling Pastor a “Paster” Continue reading
