  1. Many intending pilgrims cried their heart out after missing hajj over flights disruptions. (Reuters). Additional Reporting by Khedr Abdel Baki, IOL Correspondent ABUJA, January 7, 2006 (IslamOnline(contact admin if its a beneficial link) & News Agencies) - More than 10,000 Nigerian Muslims stranded at airports have missed the annual hajj over a lack of enough flights to Saudi Arabia. "If I start talking to you now I will start crying. We have been told to go home. We cannot go to Makkah," a pilgrim from southwestern Ogun state, who gave his name as Ibrahim, told Reuters on Friday, January 6. He was among hundreds packing up their belongings in a makeshift camp outside the main terminal at Lagos airport. Disappointed pilgrims, all of whom paid for their plane tickets months ago, were massed in impromptu camp sites at airports across Africa's most populous country. Many had waited for several days for flights to materialize. About 44,000 pilgrims had already made it to Saudi Arabia, according to Deputy Senate President Ibrahim Mantu, who is in charge of coordinating hajj airlift efforts at the federal level. The hope of many Nigerians intending to perform hajj have also been dashed as they desperately waited for Saudi visas. Secretary of Niger State Pilgrims Welfare board Mallam Isah Abubakar said Wednesday, December 28, that only 1,400 of a total of 4,000 intending pilgrims in the state have been granted hajj visas. Hajj consists of several ceremonies, which are meant to symbolize the essential concepts of the Islamic faith, and to commemorate the trials of Prophet Abraham and his family. Every able-bodied adult Muslim who can financially afford the trip must perform hajj, one of the five pillars of Islam, once in their lifetime.
  2. Amr Khalid Lecture

    At saturday I attended the 28th Annual Conference. The Islamische Gemeinde in Deutschland e.V. (Islamic Community in Germany) organized the event this year in my hometown under the title of "Muhammad (s.a.w.) - Rahmatulil Alameen". Next to guests like Dr. Ayyub Axel Köhler, Ali Kizilkaya and Dr. Issam al-Attar, Amr Khaled and Shaikh Omar Abdul-Kafi were invited, too. Unfortunately, the latter couldn't make it, but still the speech of Amr Khaled was definitely the highlight of the whole event. He was already receiving standing ovations before he had the chance to say a single word. >> (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_truelife200iv.blogspot(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/2006/11/28th-annual-conference.html"]Go Here![/url]

  4. Why In The End Of The Prayer Must Be Said Salam To

    :D You do give your Salam to all the angels and people on your right and then the same to the people and angels on the left. And I think with angels are not only meant those that write your deeds. :D
  5. :D I've read the following two things on the internet but I can't find it again to controll if they are even true. I'm scared that Shaytan fooled me with wrong information that I maybe told 1 or 2 people too much. Well, when I'm sure I still could tell them before wrong things spread. #1: a hadeeth in which Muhammad (saw) advices Umar (ra) to make Duah to become Shaheed when he sees the Kaaba, since the duah made while looking at the Kaaba the first time will be accepted. #2: the highest court in france still has or had a picture of Umar (ra) on the wall, because they looked at him as the most just leader of all time. May Allah forgive. Bringing everything straight again if all is just made up is the least I'll have to do, so help me! :D
  6. Need To Know Something?

    :D I don't think you should ask this the masses on a discussion forum if you expect fatawa-like responses. Please, contact a scholar and do as well tell him your sin, because different sins have to be handled in different ways with. :D
  7. About Gambling

    :D If money or other properties (of wealth) aren't involved I wouldn't consider it "gambling" anymore. :D
  8. To Hear Music Or Not That Is The Question!

    :D this topic has been dicsussed already lately in various other topics: (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.gawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?showtopic=24226"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.gawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?showtopic=24226[/url] (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.gawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?showtopic=24112"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.gawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?showtopic=24112[/url] (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.gawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?showtopic=19465"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.gawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?showtopic=19465[/url] :D
  9. Question On Islam!

    :D I don't know how to answer that question. but couldn't the missionary be asked the same about his god? well, the question is ignorant anyway and is only asked to stirr up fitnah, so the best is to say Allah knows best (Allah-ho-Alam). A few points to gain knowledge about Islam (without visiting Madrassa or Dar-ul-Uloom) in no specific order: 1. Stay in contact with your local Masjids and sit with the elders and more educated (in sense of Deen). if there is a halqa of taleem then always try to join them regularly. 2. start your own taleem halqa with family/friends. 3. if you have a chance then go on the path of Allah. 4. practise what you already know and Allah will give you knowledge about what you don't know. (I think Muhammad s.a.w. said this) 5. get a personal library with Islamic books in a language you are comfortable with. I hope this helps a little. :D
  10. Sisters, How Would You Feel?

    :D If I keep my discussions just to gain knowledge about my deen and increase my Imaan I think it's allowed. Didn't one of Muhammad (saw) wifes teach men behind a curtain? or was that only allowed because of certain circumstances? see I'm not sure, but I'll soon ask someone qualified Insh'Allah but will have to accept and apply the "fatwa" that's for sure. back to your "case": Look, as far as I know it goes down like if you like a girl/woman you can tell your family (parents, elder sister, aunty or whatever) to contact her family and then they do questions/anwsers. I THINK it's unislamic to do the questions/anwsers on yourself without family knowing. Remember I'm no Ulemma or whatsoever, so I'm not saying everything has to be like I'm saying. May Allah forgive me. :D
  11. What The Right Soloution For This

    :D I think her husband should talk about to her in a soft way, tell her what Allah and the Messenger narrated about black magic, shirk and things of those kinds. Make some effort to bring her back on the right path, if there's still an atom-sized dot of Imaan in her heart there's Insh'Allah still a chance. If the husband tried everything standing in his power and Allah hasn't chosen to guide this womam or she doesn't want to then I would suggest Talaq as well. Of course she has to repent, but not sure if she has to take Shahada again.
  12. Sisters, How Would You Feel?

    :D Sister Masooma is 100% correct in my honest opinion. being "face to face" with someone for a half hour would bring more than e-mailing back and forth for a week. What is bugging me the last few days is that interacting with the other gender on a discussion forum is probably haram too... dunno. I know that lying to two persons that have "beef" to end the "beef" isn't haram, so I think lying to not break someone's heart is okay. It's like Muhammad (saw) when he came home and there was nothing to eat, he said it's okay and that he was fasting anyway... allthough he didn't. By the way I think that would be the best anwser as well. :D
  13. Sisters, How Would You Feel?

    :D 1 quick question: how do you find out how religious the sister is or how her character is from those marriage websites or chatting?
  14. Folding Clothes

    :DI remember this hadeeth too! :D
  15. Are You Proud To Be British?

    :D First off I'm not from the UK. Yeah, nationalism is a stupid thing and has been taught by the west to us Muslims. On the other side Muhammad (saw) (almost) shed a tear when he had to leave Mecca and said something along "I would've never left you if I didn't have to." So I thing it's nothing wrong about loving the place your from. :D
  16. Amazing

    :D Subhan'Allah! There are signs of Allah everywhere you look! :D for the read! :D
  17. Fulfillment Of Du'aa In Dunia And Akhira

    :D A really good hadeeth and point you made out! :D :D
  18. Why Islam? Why Not?

    :D I'm a Muslim because of Allah's mercy! Insh'Allah one day I can be thankfull enough! May Allah guide me, my family and friends, the following generations of my family and the whole Ummah of Muhammad (saw)! :D
  19. Writing A Book

    :D to be honest I always try to avoid books written by people that are not reliable. reliable means most of the times for me that the author has learned about deen (in madrassa or darul-uloom) or is known to me... other than that I might buy/read a book when reliable people suggest it to me. I'm really afraid of getting "misguided" by not authentic or reliable knowledge. but insh'Allah your literature will become a success. :D
  20. Allah Guides Whom He Wills?

    Dear WMA, have a look at this link: (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.aswatalislam(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/DisplayFilesP.aspx?TitleID=50027&TitleName=Zakir_Naik"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.aswatalislam(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/DisplayFilesP....Name=Zakir_Na k[/url] I suggest you watch and listen to lectures like "Is The Qur'an God's Word" "Islam & Christanity" "Muhammad(Pbuh) In The Various Religious Scriptures" "Qur'an And Bible In The Light Of Science Vs Campbell" "Quran And Modern Science Conflict Or Reconciliation" "Similarities Between Islam And Christanity". In my honest opinion it will help more than going forth and back with us. peace
  21. See If You Can Answer This One...

    :Dditto :D
  22. Morons...

    :D if you were talking to me then I can tell you my intention was rather to find out what he's saying and not to offend anyone. (And Allah alone knows my Niyyat) :D
  23. Sheikh Sudays Calls For Moderation

    :D well, the link leads me to nowhere... or is it just me? anyway, a really good point made by Shaykh Sudais! :D for the read! :D
  24. A man came to the Prophet and said, ‘O Messenger of God! Who among the people is the most worthy of my good companionship? The Prophet said: [Your mother]. The man said, ‘Then who?' The Prophet said: [Then your mother.] The man further asked, ‘Then who?' The Prophet said: [Then your mother]. The man asked again, ‘Then who?' The Prophet said: [Then your father.]. (Bukhari, Muslim). The Quran 1. "We have enjoined on man kindness to his parents; in pain did his mother bear him, and in pain did she give him birth" (46:15). 2. "Thy Lord hath decreed that ye worship none but Him, and that ye be kind to parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in thy life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honor. And out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say: ‘My Lord! bestow on them Thy Mercy even as they cherished me in childhood' "(17:23-24). 3. "We have enjoined on man and woman kindness to parents; but if they (either of them) strive (to force) thee to join with Me anything of which thou hast no knowledge, obey them not'" (29:8). 4. "We have enjoined on man and woman (to be good) to his/her parents; show gratitude to Me and to thy parents; to Me is (thy final) Goal. If they (parents) strive to make thee join in worship with Me things of which thou hast no knowledge, obey them not; yet bear them company in this life with justice (and consideration) and follow the way of those who turn to Me (in love)" (31:14-15). The Hadith 1. The Prophet Muhammad said, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him: Your Heaven lies under the feet of your mother (Ahmad, Nasai). 2. A man came to the Prophet and said, ‘O Messenger of God! Who among the people is the most worthy of my good companionship? The Prophet said: Your mother. The man said, ‘Then who?' The Prophet said: Then your mother. The man further asked, ‘Then who?' The Prophet said: Then your mother. The man asked again, ‘Then who?' The Prophet said: Then your father. (Bukhari, Muslim). 3. Abu Usaid Saidi said: We were once sitting with Rasulullah when a man from the tribe of Salmah came and said to him: O Messenger of Allah! do my parents have rights over me even after they have died? And Rasulullah said: Yes. You must pray to Allah to bless them with His Forgiveness and Mercy, fulfill the promises they made to anyone, and respect their relations and their friends (Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah). 4. Abdullah ibn Amr related that the Messenger of Allah said: The major sins are to believe that Allah has partners, to disobey one's parents, to commit murder, and to bear false witness (Bukhari, Muslim). 5. It is narrated by Asma bint Abu Bakr that during the treaty of Hudaibiyah, her mother, who was then pagan, came to see her from Makkah. Asma informed the Messenger of Allah of her arrival and also that she needed help. He said: Be good to your mother (Bukhari, Muslim).
