  5. Islam In Switzerland

    Assalam u Alaikum wa Rahmatullah hi wabarakatu, "APPARENTLY many people would like their own state." Where does this vague knowledge come from? These arguments and perspectives are typical of a person who is ONLY influenced by the Media.Now if the Media would start to showcase all ill treatments and crimes in the west and would through its technology and tactics (Music,camera perspective,Brain washing etc...) show the west as a Tyrann,believe me you yourself would say that the west is the culprit. The Media can make you believe strange things.I ll take an Example,we Muslims even might have never been using the word "Jihad" (I know some might think now...."Halleluja!She just said that-which-should-not-be-said....!!" *eyesroll*) as much as the Media does.Although Jihad means simply struggle.Struggling against your own Desires is a big Jihad.Its not what the Media shows it to be! Anyhow,I didnt put in any argument about whether Pakistan is a "Failed state" or not.You ll come up with some other heard-of-argument and I dont even want to weigh my own wonderful experiences with some knowledge that is not plausible. Although I would say,visit Pakistan.You ll see the difference yourself.Inshaa Allah! Back to Islam in Switzerland---> There was the Day against Rascism and Islamophobie on the 28th October.Although I sadly wasnt able to attend but I checked it out on Youtube and BELIEVE ME! I was mesmerized. I´ll post here some of those videos which are available on Youtube relating that wonderful and meaningful Day: (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetyoutube(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/user/IZRS?blend=22&ob=5"]Beautiful Quranic Recitation[/url] (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetyoutube(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/watch?v=A0FBrc__IvU&feature=related"]Adhan-SubhanAllah![/url] (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetyoutube(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/watch?v=tEB6O7ysZjM&feature=related"]Lecture- Nora illi[/url] (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetyoutube(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/watch?v=89P6VCF8tmo&feature=related"]Oscar M.Bergamin-Ending[/url] SubhanAllah!=) It makes me so happy that Islam is making a positive impact and that things are going ahead.May Allah bless the struggle and Dawah of all those participating and attending the event! Next upcoming Event is the Ummah Day on the 17th December,Inshaa Allah!:sl: Assalam u Alaikum
  6. Islam In Switzerland

    Failed miserable country.....?! Yes the West is tryin to make it look failed,it is being manipulated since decades.But it was created based on the ideology of Islam,Alhamdulillah it is still not near to being failed.Its a wonderful country. I know many people who have the opportunity to go go abroad but they prefer living in Pakistan!And if you would better take in consideration what the Kashmiri People WANT then it is for that Kashmir should be Part of Pakistan! Islam in Switzerland-->I have found what is an Islamic political Party in Switzerland.It is the "Islamischer Zentralrat Schweiz" and Membership can be sought on this (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetizrs.ch/"]Official website[/url].I was mesmerized by the yearly conference on the 19th February which I could take a little insight .You can also by looking at this (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetyoutube(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/watch?v=NNAnDjGUYjc"]Video about the conference![/url] It is a wonderful way to actively participate and help,and a platform for all Muslims.

Unbeliever why dont you go and study Islam!Stop listening to the manipulated Media.There are people supressed in any Part of the World in any Religion.Its just that the Media is Hyping everything against Islam. Muslims suffer alot on the Hands of the west,there is not even ONE such Place in the west which is supressed or taken over by Muslims!Why the Uproar then?? And yes what Aladdin is calling as a Nation is actually what is called Ummah!we are one Ummah and we are tied together by our faith!:sl: Islam in Switzerland--->On 29th of October the Anti Islamophobia and Anti Rascism Day is celebrated in Bern!On the "Bundesplatz" for all those who are interested!Come and join!=) (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetyoutube(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/watch?v=h62F-qvYqp8"]Invitation =)[/url]
  8. Islam In Switzerland

    Assalam o Alaikum, Again we are talkin about a general topic rather than what the real topic is. But yeah,I feel the urge to answer because the comparison I was talking about was based on first hand experience.I KNOW Non-Muslims living happily in Pakistan.There is not even a tiny bit of confusion coz I know how peacefully everyone s living. I could show you a whole Gallery of beautiful and huge churches there.No one is bothered by them,they are a part of the society.Now if the Media is brain washing the whole world you should watch out for that.I dont really want an answer but I urge Non-Muslims to look around And observe Muslims....Do they act unfriendly?Is there something about them that can be named terroristic?Now if there are some bad ones...arent bad people everywhere?Why picking on a Religion?Why not simply neutrally on the Person? Look,The story from the last days in which two planes crashed coz of the fault of a Person not having evaluated the whole situation properly and his Murder by a Man who lost his Child and Wife.He was wrong but if he would be Muslim his Name would be Terrorist.Now the worst name given to him might be lunatic,isnt it?Or the Day of Terror in Norway....he wasnt named a Terrorist.Although what he did was worse than that! If all Non-Muslims would hold on for a while.Put down the Anti-islamic Cap they would see the difference.Islam is a Religion,a way of Life.Its not the Name of an Organisation or a Person. As I said before....read the Quran.Look at the Life of our Prophet (PBUH).While doing so be neutral,give Prejudice and clichees no Chance.You ll see....Islam will show its beauty,Inshaa Allah! Islam even the word in its own context means Peace and Submission.Our one and only goal in life is (or basically should be) Allahs Submission and His Happiness.May Allah guide everyone to the Real and Only Path,May He bless us with strenght and Patience!Ameen! And adding to the real Topic: Alhamdolillah I have seen manyyyy women in Hijab here.I love when we greet each other by saying Salam.Its such an incredible nice feeling. There is also a planned Ummah Day here.Im eagerly waiting for it....!=)
  9. Islam In Switzerland

    Assalam o Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu, I would feel happier if this Topic "Islam in Switzerland" would emphasize on WHAT is happening regarding Islam in Switzerland! As I wasnt here,I will write One Post regarding this whole Issue,hoping to clear Confusions as far as possible.Inshaa Allah! As a little comparison I would love to tell Ron and any other who cant comprehend how Muslims reached Switzerland, that there are European Non-Muslims,American Non-Muslims (Non Muslims around the World in General) living in Muslim Countries in PEACE and HARMONY!I know a woman myself whoz Swiss but she lives in a Village in Pakistan has 2 sons who speak Punjabi -pure native language of Pakistan- and she is a Revert (and yes its a Belief that all human beings are Muslim when born). People are crossing Borders since Centuries!Difficulties are there (Immigration issues) but these are NOT related to Religion in general (it might be influenced maybe a tiny bit after 9/11 but under normal circumstances it is not the Main Factor for Visa Approval/Rejection!) A further Info is that on a Swiss Passboard there is no place where your Religion is mentioned,nor is your Native Homeland mentioned! This list basically applies to any country having foreigners (Muslims in this case) and how they reached there,here talkin about Switzerland: 1.The Reverts (of any Nationality) 2.Those who came during early Days when immigration issues where Non-existent and are now settled 3.Students/Enterpreneurs/Job seekers 4.Those who marry a Swiss National (native/foreign) and then settle there too. 5.Immigrants in General Obviously there must be cases peeking out of these 5 but those are exceptional cases! Switzerland is an amazing land to live!The people are soo friendly!Yes its true that the Minarett-Initiative made switzerland notorious and people see it as Anti-Islamic but these are only some people and some specific areas.The bigger Cities had People even apologizing on you are not allowed to post links yetIslam.ch as they were ashamed of the Result!Swiss People are very tolerant,open and friendly!Alhamdolillah! Sister Lost in Paradies,Jazakallah for answering in my Absence and Ron I hope all confusions are cleared.If there are some persisting,please try to solve them at some other Place, where Immigration questions and the questions why Muslims are in Countries where there are least expected ( by some) might be answered as a General Topic! .Jazakallah Khair for the Understanding in Advance! Btw Alhamdolillah Islam is the fastest growing Religion despite of the Islamophobia hype that is unjustly created! Truth is always accepted,sooner or later!:sl: Islam is so perfect and righteous!SubhanAllah! those who dont believe my words should start looking into it,go to a Masjid,read the Quran....just to experience the miraculous Journey themselves,without bumping into fruitless Discussions!:no: Jazak Allah Khair! Wassalam , A muslim sister living happily in Switzerland!:sl:
  10. Islam In Switzerland

    Assalam o Alaikum, Islam is not a Cultur and it is not restricted to an area.It is a religion which is the fastest growing! There are many reverts,nd there are maaanyyy Muslims in Switzerland.Its the second biggest religion there! Jazakallah Khair
  11. Islam In Switzerland

    Assalam o Alaikum, I was thinking about Islam in Switzerland and I do know that the Minarett Issue must be mentioned as it outraged Muslims throughout the world including Switzerland.As it is Ramazan,I feel that after this Holy Month I ll make a detailed Post about it so to complete the information in this Section. If someone in Switzerland has some Infos or even Issues,more than welcome this section is for you!:sl: May Allah forgive me for anything wrong I might have said unintentionally in this section.Wallah o Alim...! Jazakallah Khair

  13. [Fatwa]Taraweeh

    Assalam u Alaikum!! I wanted to ask if it is allowed in Islam that a woman may lead the Taraweeh Prayer. My Aunty does but we are not sure if it is really allowed or not.She does not stand infront of everyone but shares the first Saf (line or I dont know how you call it) with other women. Actually she is a Hafiza and revises her Quran through this. Is there any Fatwa about that?? Jazakallah May Allah bless and forgive us all!!
  14. Salam my Brothers and Sisters!! A terrific wave has struck Pakistan. 2 Suicide Attacks have hit the University in which 2 People died and about 20 are injured. May Allah take the Sorrow and Pains of these Poor People. Now what Im eager to know... WHO THE HELL IS DOING SOMETHING SO BARBARIC!!!!!!!!!! Could pleaze someone who understands Politic and all that explain me. Im really really crushed by what happened today.Now no one is safe.Not even Students or Islamic People. If someone has more to say please...
  15. What Is Your Blood Type ?

    Danke really! Now I realize how vague the statements are which people say.Ive even added it to my Favourites..!( freak I know..) Actually AB+ ist the one which can get blood from any other Group! Another question!Ive heard that some people know how to relate the Bloodgroups to character.I know again very vague but does anyone know about this?
  16. What Is Your Blood Type ?

    O+ Is it true that we,the O+ people can give Blood to every other Group but we ourselves can only get O+ Blood? Which one is the rarest? I believe AB because Ive never actually met anyone with this Group!
  17. How Muslims Celebrate Birthdays?

    Salams! Hmm I think not that harsh about this.In this depressed and sad world we should not ommit opportunities to be happy or together! I love Birthdays,Parties and Presents!!:sl: Wassalam Lohavira
  18. Online Quran Lessons

    Assalam u Alaikum!! My Uncle is becoming an Islamic Scholar and he is already a Hafiz,mashallah. Now he has been to Japan because of his good Recitation and stayed there for 3 Months in a Masjid.He gave Friday Sermons,taught Children and was the Imam for 3 Months. People wanted him to continue to teach their children so the solution of Online Lesson was seen as the Best. Now if ANYONE wants to learn the Holy Quran,it doesnt matter if he can read a word or not.He may learn from my Uncle ONLINE.I assure that my Uncle is a very talented and pious Person. If anyone is interested he can PM me.Or he can contact my Uncle directly under yahoo(contact admin if its a beneficial link)]Email May Allah bless us All!!
  19. Online Quran Lessons

    It works quite well.It is actually teaching the Quran,how to pronounce the arabic words.It works with a webcam and good audio! A minor (for some it might be big) is that my Oncle does not speak proper English.But he knows Arabic. Even for a test lesson interested might apply to him.They should mention previous knowledge,religion and the language spoken.This will help him to prepare himself accordingly! Wassalam Lohavira
  20. Online Quran Lessons

    Salam!! The email adress is sulaiman.sajid AT yahoo(contact admin if its a beneficial link) I think you understand that an [at] has to be placed there. I would really recommend because he is teaching even at home ( Bilal Academy) in which mashallah more than 100 students learn the Holy Quran. Any interested can contact him directly or PM me. Wassalam Lohavira
  21. Story Of A Beautiful Woman...!

  22. I'm Evil.

    Salam sister! I actually dont want to give you any advice because I think my knowledge is very very low.Even though Im a born Muslim. Mashallah mashallah may Allah strengthen your faith. I actually had a similar friend who used to stop us from everythinyg.She did it with real anger.We always were so put off by her really...but you know what sister.It was the way she was doing it.You must remember that the Prophet had an excellent character and a very good Ikhlak! So I think being Islamic this is a very essential part as well! May Allah bless you with a strong Islamic and patient heart!Ameen!
  23. Salam Mashallah,such a beautiful recitation. May Allah grant Khala UmAhmed and her Family Jannah!Amin!! Mashallah,mashallah,mashallah!
  24. Islam In Switzerland

    Salam u Alaikum everyone!! Happy Ramazan and soon Happy Eid!Hope you are all fine and happy! I recentyle went to Youtube and saw Videos of Islam INFO STANDS held at various Places in Switzerland.It made me soo truly happy.Although there were not that much People showing interest but the one who did,did it very heartily. I still had one Point to ponder about.There were no Sisters involved in those Projects which made me really sad.This is exactly what is required.If Muslim confident sisters would show themselves like in America and UK people there would stop thinking that women are supressed or kept behind. Still mashallah its a good effort and Im very Happy. May Allah grant them all Paradies for their Efforts.Amin! Thanks to Gawaher I can let out my thoughts about Islam in Switzerland and know its a good Platform.Thank You for this! :sl: May Allah bless you all and give us strength to be proud Muslims.
  25. What Shall Someone New Do?
