    Has anyone on here been treated super badly by the Ummah? In what way? How do you overcome the sense of betrayal and the sense of being "kicked out" by your own Ummah? I asked some advanced questions about the deen and other sects of Islam (not because I wanted to join the sect, I just wanted some clarification about their teachings and how to do dawah to them) and I was treated like a spy/troublemaker. I ended up in tears... no one has ever treated me that way before and everyone involved knows I've only been a Muslim for a year and I have Autism. Now I understand the quote: "I'm glad I found Islam before I met the Ummah." It's super discouraging. In all my life I've never been treated so badly. (P.S. to the mod(s) I accidentally posted this first to the controversial issue section not knowing it was about fiqh. I'm sorry about that.I'm new here so I don't know my way around this site yet My bad.)

    Islam has taught us live a balanced life with moderate attitude. No one is asked to take extreme actions in Islam. One can observe that the true Muslims are living a peaceful life. Therefore associating any type of radicalism with Islam is unjustifiable. Sacred teachings of the Holy Quran have taught to live in peace.

    Yeah it's right that prayer timings are different across the world, and often who travels faced difficulties in finding the timings of prayers. But you know technological advancement have make our life easier, there are lots of mobile apps out there which can provide prayer timings and locate Qibla direction as well.

    The Christian Zionists tend to be Evangelicals. They are very dangerous and are behind many of the conflicts around the world. They believe that if anyone turns against Zionism that Allah swt will punish them not realizing that the present day israel is not the real israel and was made by fake Jews.

    The Quran is in every detail the unique and miraculous text which was revealed to Muhammad fourteen centuries ago. Not one word of its 114 chapters has been changed over the centuries.The Quran deals with all topics which concern us as human beings: wisdom, doctrine, worship, and law, but its basic theme is the relationship between God and His creatures.

    As-Salaam alaikum, Ma'amar Ibn Ahmad al-Asbahani, may Allah be Merciful to him, narrated in his 40 Hadith collection on the authority of Abdullah Ibn Mas'ud, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said:- The Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, censured us in his khutba. He said:-- "Oh Ummah of Muhammad ! A sage among the sages showed more understanding than you when his companions called him to pleasures and disobedience. He said, 'I am ashamed of my Lord to worship Him, hoping for Paradise as a reward, and therefore be like a bad labourer: if he is given his wage he works, and if he is not given it, he does not work. And I am ashamed of my Lord to worship Him out fear of the Fire and be also like a bad labourer: if he is fearful of his master he works, and if he is not, he does not work. I only worship Him for what He deserves, for He deserves to be worshiped.'

    Islam has 5 main obligations/pillars of faith, which each Muslim must accomplish in his/her lifetime. They are as follows: 1- Profession of Faith (Shahadah) is the 1st pillar of Islam, 2- Prayers (Salah) is the 2nd pillar, 3- Almsgiving(Zakat) is the 3rd pillar, 4- Fasting in the holy month of Ramadan-ul-Mubarak which is the 4th pillar of Islam and 5- the Pilgrimage to Makkah (Hajj) is the 5th pillar. https://www.dawateislami.net/downloads/products/detail/7

    Hello, good day and Assalam-Mualaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatu Have you ever wondered where Ayatul-Kursi came from? Or why people say it's powerful? Well, I only heard this when I was 20 years old, but all those other years were wasted because my belief wasn't powerful enough. A long time ago the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) asked one of his Sahaba (close friend) to watch the goods at the camp for the evening whilst everyone rested. This was surely an easy task and the Sahaba complied. Unfortunately, during the even a thief came and attempted to steal something, lucky enough, the Sahaba caught him and threatened that he was going to call the Prophet (SAW). However the man began to cry begging the Sahaba that he needed to steal something so he could get food for his family. Being the softhearted man he was, the Sahaba let him go. The next morning the Prophet asked the Sahaba if anything occurred so the Sahaba explained the commotion. The Prophet (SAW) told him he should be on guard this evening as well. When evening came, the thief appeared once more to try and steal something and you can imagine what happened next. Yes, the thief got caught and pleaded that his family was suffering of hunger. The Sahaba feeling even worse now decided to let the thief go. The following day the Prophet (SAW) asked if anything happened. So indeed the Sahaba explained once more. The Prophet (SAW) then told the Sahaba he would stand once more on guard duty that particular evening. So he did. The Sahaba waited that evening and surprise!! The thief tried to steal AGAIN! So the Sahaba feeling he had no alternative now, told the thief he was taking him to the Prophet (SAW). However, after pleading so unsuccessfully thief told the Sahaba he'd give him a few secret words so POWERFUL nothing could ever touch him, not even the thief if he recited those words. So the Sahaba was SHOCKED and was really really eager to hear what these magic words were. Indeed the thief taught him these words, and in return he was set free, promising never to return. The following day the Prophet (SAW) wanted to know what happened and the Sahaba explained that the theif taught him these magical words that can protect anyone from anything. The Prophet (SAW) then explained that the thief was indeed SATAN(The Devil). Shaytan is the most evil influence to exist yet HE gave us protection against him!!! Ayatul-Kursi can protect you 100%...... only if your belief in it, holds 100% firmly..... Thank you and Jazak-Allah.

    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."
