    As-Salaam alaikum, The Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, once observed: "You shall not enter Paradise and you will not believe until you love one another. Shall I direct you to a thing which, if you do it, it will foster love amongst you? Give currency to 'Assalam alaikum' " [Sahih Muslim Book 1, Hadith 96 ]. Spreading of peace among one another is much more than the outward greeting of 'Assalam alaikum.....Peace be upon you'. This is just the beginning. When we are truly at peace within ourselves, then we will be spreading that peace to others. This is spreading peace outwardly from within us- for no one will love you except the one that you have given peace to in every one of your/our states. We must believe and feel that both our existence and the existence of whom we greet with 'Assalam alaikum' are by Divine cause.... we exist at His Pleasure, Allahu Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala.

    The books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy in the bible are filled with instructions regarding animal sin offerings. Basically the animals are slaughtered and offered up in place of the penitent sinner. So what we have here is a vicarious (substitution) atonement. I’m wondering what is the Muslim position in this case? I know Muslims assert everyone is responsible for their own sins; there can be no vicarious atonement as Christians claim about Christ’s sacrifice. One of the main reasons the temple was built was for animal sacrifices.

    As-Salaam alaikum, In Ayat 28 of Surat Al-Kahf of the Holy Qur'an (18:28), Allah Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala says:-- "AND OBEY NOT HIM WHOSE HEART WE HAVE MADE HEEDLESS OF OUR REMEBRANCE, ONE WHO FOLLOWS HIS OWN LUSTS AND WHOSE AFFAIR HAS BEEN LOST AND WASTED." Indeed, every harm that enters upon a servant is caused by the heart's corruption. For corruption of the heart in turn brings about the removal of the heart's right upon Allah, the Exalted, and a diminution of its disgrace and rank in the sight of Allah. So, be cautious of mixing with people or a person who will cause wastage of time and corruption of the heart. When time is wasted and heart corrupted, all affairs of the servant become ruined.....

    Travelling on a plane was a man who was proud of his intelligence. When he discovered that the person sitting next to him was a worker, he suggested they think up some riddles to pass the time. "If you can’t answer mine, you must give me $5," he said. "And if i can’t answer yours, I’ll give you $5, OK?" "NO!" answered the worker, "I’m tired and i want to sleep" "Well a better idea" said the man intensively, "If you can’t answer mine, you must give me $5 and if i can’t answer yours, I’ll give you $10," "Alright" the worker said after a little thinking, "And i will go first". The man agreed. The worker then asked: “What has six feet on the land and only three feet when swimming?" then continued "I sleep, when you find the answer wake me up!" "OK" the man said. He thought for very long time about this, but reluctantly he had to concede defeat. When they reached their destination he woke the worker up and said "here's your $10; what’s the answer?" "I don't know", said the worker; "here's your $5."
