  1. Being A Muslim

    Being a Muslim Moving with dignity and pride A quick and powerful stride Extreme strength of the mind An unbelievable find A Muslim standing proud Head high above the crowd Building futures from the ground No limits, all is unbound One nation hand in hand One strong solid band This is how we should stand Only one goal, one demand Just one basic obligation The very reason of our creation Worshiping the One, resisting temptation But where is that unifying sensation? Where is the united ‘Muslim state’? We were one, united by belief in fate Now there is only greed and hate Blindly following the wrong estate We fell not because of our religion But because we cease to envision Our Lord’s ‘eye’ in every decision Bringing us to our current condition ‘Muslims are backward’ is a falsity Our arrogance causes our indignity We shredded our own integrity… Where is the Muslim pride and dignity? When you nod your head To your Muslim brother Mohammed… Only to hear his friend… …call him Mike instead. ~Dua
  2. Not positive this goes in here, but I think it does. So this, anti-Muslim DVD has been going out to "swing" states in the US, thought but not confirmed to be sent out by the McCain campaign to instill fear in the voters. It's being sent out or already was sent out w/ newspapers to their subscribers a few Sundays ago, or at least in MI. What do you guys think about this? Our university groups have been quite responsive elhamdella, and have sent out a statement to the newspaper requesting a meeting w/ them to discuss this DVD and how it's spreading hate and causing fear among citizens and what not, still haven't gotten a reply but hopefully will soon and it will be something positive. Has anybody else had to deal with this? ~D
  3. "26- jihad or tawassul discussions: warn, hide (disable 5 if repeated)" This is a reply I got from one of the sisters: Discussing jihad or tawassul is a violation of rule 26, in which case a moderator will warn the member, hide the post/thread violating that particular rule, and should the member repeat the violation, disabled 5 simply means his/her posting rights will be taken away for 5 days (unless an apology is given). I hope that helps. When I asked what it meant, but i guess I want to know why it's a rule. I have no idea what tawassul is (unless it means begging). JAK, ~D
  4. Rule 26 Question

    hahaha, I hope that was supposed to be funny b/c I laughed.

  7. Official Nba Thread

    Lol! I don't hate on Kobe, I don't like the lakers period. I just don't, call it a personal vendetta or whatever you want to call it. I loved Reggie Miller from the Pacers but he retired (tears); he was/still is my most favorite player.

  12. Look At Me

    Look at me Not at the scarf on my head Look at me Not at the body you can't see Look at me Not at the images on TV Look at me Not at the oppression you think you see Look at me Not at the domination you say you see Look at me, at the face that stands before you, at the girl that stands in front of you.. Look at me and listen.. I’m sick of the stares, sick of the glares.. The misconceptions, the thoughts, the ideas Thoughts and ideas that I can see in your eyes The way your eyes don’t meet mine The way you turn and change your mind Like I’m something undefined, an out of this world find Thoughts and ideas that I can almost hear “What century did she come from?†“Let’s get out of here; we don’t know what’s under that†“Look at how she’s dressed, she’s must be so oppressed†You don’t know me, you don’t understand me.. So stop with the judging and hear me The clothing that I wear, the covering of my hair.. I do it for my Lord, the one Creator.. Not because of man, no human dictator One goal in this life, and that’s pleasing the Maintainer So I try to turn the other cheek, to let it go… But at times… it’s just too much.. too much handle, too much to bear I often wake up hoping it’s all a dream… Wishing that things were different Praying that I wouldn’t have to answer the same questions, Over and over…do you have hair? Do you have ears? If it’s education they’re seeking, I would not care …sigh… But those times are few.. my faith, it leads me through.. So today I wake up with my head held high Grab my backpack, and head out the door.. As I cross the street, I wave to my neighbor After a right at the corner I hear a honk and turn around.. “Go back home†the driver yells… I sigh and continue walking …. But this is home …

    I haven't kept up with the NBA in a couple years now... just way too busy :sl:
  18. Atheists are difficult because their whole belief is based on lack of belief nothing more, nothing less... science doesn't have an answer for questions like the start of the world and stuff... I mean they have theories but do they have facts and laws no.. yet people tend to take these theories as facts which is so confusing.

  23. Obama Or Mccain

    you guys are still discussing this? Let the Muslims in America worry about voting IN America. This is like the whack fatwa that came out of Kuwait saying ladies could take off their hijab post 9/11 ...

    Democracy is an Islamic concept, after the death of the Prophet did they not vote on who should lead the Muslims after the Prophet?
