  1. Uniting The Muslim Ummah

    :D If we set our minds on simply thinking "we don't need full unity" we won't take unity serious at all. Its impossible to have 100% unity unless Allah wills it but we must try. How will it be if Allah wills to ask us "why did you divide from the Ummah" what will we say? Please read my previous posts as the Qur'an is serious about unity and staying together. If we don't take it seriously then we have abandoning one thing, and abandoning one thing from the Qur'an is a great sin. Fahid
  2. Uniting The Muslim Ummah

    :D I don't know if anyone here is taking unity seriously just a few Alhamdullilah. If we continue our downfall we could very well be replaced, and if it has to be done so be it. My advice, please take the Qur'an seriously, because honestly, we are abandoning it and throwing it behind our backs like the people of the scriptures before us did. "And the Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) will say: "O my Lord! Verily, my people deserted this Qur'ân (neither listened to it nor acted on its laws and teachings)." (Qur'an 25:30) "If He wills, He can take you away, O people, and bring others. And Allâh is Ever All-Potent over that." (Qur'an 4:133) Allah knows Best. Fahid
  3. Water Rising Throughout New Orleans

    :D I pray that people who are looking towards asking for Allah's help in this time of need which happens in tragedy, Allah Willingly, they will be safe and continue there life remembering the Creator who is the Helper. Fahid
  4. Why Do Muslims Fast During Ramadan?

    :D If we also take it from a different perspective of understanding how is man ever grateful to the Creator? In fact man in general is very ungrateful and we should be grateful for everything. I'm sure this question goes along with as to why we do such things etc... I always use this analogy by thinking of the pillars of Islam: The Shahada/Testification - We testify it in at least ONE point in our life and keep it with us. The Salat/Prayer - We do it for at least ONE hour on a daily basis (5 times in a day). The Zakat/Charity - We make payment at least ONE times a year. The Sawm/Fasting-Ramadan - We do it ONE month a year. The Hajj/Pilgramage - We require ONE visit in our lifetime if able to. Why not do it for the Lord All-Mighty :D He gives us 23 hours a day for ourselves, he gives us 11 months a year to ourselves, he is so merciful that he requires only one visit to make the pilgramage and if you can't afford it in your lifetime then you are excused and so on. Fahid

  6. People Who Are Not Of The Book

    :D Well from the aspect of the Da'i (person who does Dawah/Propogation), they treat them in the same way... Invite (mankind, O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) to the way of your Lord (i.e. Islâm) with wisdom (i.e. with the Divine Revelation and the Qur'ân) and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His path, and He is the Best Knower of those who are guided. (Qur'an 16:125) It depends mostly on the situation. Allah states in the Qur'an: "Allâh does not forbid you to deal justly and kindly with those who fought not against you on account of religion nor drove you out of your homes. Verily, Allâh loves those who deal with equity." (Qur'an 60:8) I hope this helps Insh'Allah. Allah knows Best. Fahid
  7. R U Drinking (min) 8 Glasses

    :D There was a recent discovery made that 8 glasses of water actually proved untrue for everyone and even too much water we know can be poisionous to the body. Fahid
  8. (And who is truer to his covenant than Allah) affirming that He never breaks a promise. Allah said in similar statements, (And who is truer in statement than Allah)[4:87], and, (And whose words can be truer than those of Allah)[4:122]. Allah said next, (Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success.), meaning, let those who fulfill the terms of this contract and uphold this covenant receive the good news of great success and everlasting delight. (112. Those who repent, who worship (Him), who praise (Him), who fast, who bow down, who prostrate themselves, who enjoin good and forbid evil, and who observe the limits set by Allah. And give glad tidings to the believers.) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ And Allah knows Best. Fahid
  9. :D As regards to Qur'an 9:111, it is very important that we take a look to the Tafsir (interpretation) before we make judgement as to what the verse speaks about. From Tafsir Ibn Kathir: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Allah has purchased the Souls and Wealth of the Mujahidin in Return for Paradise Allah states that He has compensated His believing servants for their lives and wealth -- if they give them up in His cause -- with Paradise. This demonstrates Allah's favor, generosity and bounty, for He has accepted the good that He already owns and bestowed, as a price from His faithful servants. Al-Hasan Al-Basri and Qatadah commented, "By Allah! Allah has purchased them and raised their worth.'' Shimr bin `Atiyyah said, "There is not a Muslim but has on his neck a sale that he must conduct with Allah; he either fulfills its terms or dies without doing that.'' He then recited this Ayah. This is why those who fight in the cause of Allah are said to have conducted the sale with Allah, meaning, accepted and fulfilled his covenant. Allah's statement, (They fight in Allah's cause, so they kill and are killed.) indicates that whether they were killed or they kill the enemy, or both, then Paradise will be theirs. The Two Sahihs recorded the Hadith, (Allah has made a promise to the person who goes out (to fight) in His cause; `And nothing compels him to do so except Jihad = in My Cause and belief in My Messengers. ' He will either be admitted to Paradise if he dies, or compensated by Allah, either with a reward or booty if He returns him to the home which he departed from.) Allah's statement, (It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Tawrah and the Injil and the Qur'an.) affirms this promise and informs us that Allah has decreed this for His Most Honorable Self, and revealed it to His Messengers in His Glorious Books, the Tawrah that He sent down to Musa, the Injil that He sent down to `Isa, and the Qur'an that was sent down to Muhammad, may Allah's peace and blessings be on them all. Allah said next, CONTINUED...
  10. Is It The End Of The World?

    :D Its most likely because its not a serious matter to the Media (ratings). I suppose barely anyone would care anyway. Fahid
  11. Flood Of Noah Did Not Cover Whole World:

    :D I have also heard that it was not the whole world. Scientifically proven that their was a great flood, however no evidence suggests it was the whole world. Maurice Buccelle who wrote the famous book" The Bible, The Qur'an and Science" I believe had mentioned that it didn't cover the whole world. I think alot of Muslims in the past had thought so because of the Christian beliefs for example Adam :D had eaten an apple, but no evidence in the Qur'an (or even in the Bible?) that suggests that. Allah knows Best. Fahid
  12. The Right To Vote

    :D Allah says in the Holy Qur'an: "O Prophet! When believing women come to you to give you the Bai'ah (pledge), that they will not associate anything in worship with Allâh, that they will not steal, that they will not commit illegal sexual intercourse, that they will not kill their children, that they will not utter slander, intentionally forging falsehood (i.e. by making illegal children belonging to their husbands), and that they will not disobey you in Ma'rûf (Islâmic Monotheism and all that which Islâm ordains), then accept their Bai'ah (pledge), and ask Allâh to forgive them. Verily, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Qur'an 60:12) Women were given permission to give their Oath of Allegience to the Prophet :D It was reported that Abdur Rahman Ibn Affan (ra) had also consulted Women before he gave his Oath to Uthman (ra) as the Third Caliph. One must realize how Women were treated and lived during the days of ignorance and how Allah (swt) gave them many great rights, it was a transition a remarkable one. It's not like the "20th century feminist movement or something" but it was completely revolutionary for such a time in the 7th Century. The Prophet :D fealt for the orphans the poor and the Women who were all treated wrongly, what a character what a heart what a man! But in terms of "voting" in today's nations it seems that there are opinions on this. Allah knows Best. Fahid
  13. My Friend's Father Has Passed Away

    :D Inna lillahi wa inna illayhi rajioun May Allah grant him paradise. Fahid
  14. Salam Aleikom

    :D May Allah reward you. :wsl: Fahid
  15. Is Dajjal Here?

    :D Internet as part of the Dajjal system? Part of Dajjal's traits is he will be able to mislead others and confuse them even Muslims. The Internet has loads of junk and filth even on Islam (a false interpretation of it of course) that it seems possible. Internet was also prophecised (I don't have reference), Rasullilah :D as he had quoted to have said that "everyone will be coming to a global spider web" just summarizing it... Your thoughts? Allah knows Best Fahid
