  1. Those who believe that the US airstrikes on the Syrian airbase was the result of the ‘moral conscience’ of the American government and its new President after witnessing the use of chemical weapons on the Muslims of Khan Sheikhoun, rather than driven by pure national interests and agendas should consider the following: – Over 1/2 a million Syrians slaughtered over 6 years in this brutal war was not enough to elicit a response against Assad! – Barrel bombs dropped on houses, hospitals, and schools by the Syrian regime, killing tens of thousands of civilians and burying women, children and babies alive under rubble was not enough to elicit a response against Assad! – The utter annihilation and bloodbath in Aleppo by the Syrian regime was not enough to elicit a response against Assad! – Previous use of chemical weapons against innocent civilians by the Syrian regime (in numerous towns – not just in Ghouta, Damascus) which suffocated and burnt the skins of children and babies was not enough to elicit a response against Assad! – The siege of towns by the Syrian regime that resulted in the starvation of tens of thousands of civilians who were reduced to eating the leaves of trees, rubbish from garbage bins and dead cats was not enough to elicit a response against Assad! – Syrian regime militia slitting open the stomachs of pregnant Muslim women, aiming their snipers at the chests of children, and gang raping countless women and girls was not enough to elicit a response against Assad! – The horrific torture and cold-blooded execution of thousands of Muslim prisoners in the dungeons of the Syrian regime were not enough to elicit a response against Assad! – The creation of a huge refugee crisis as the result of the war with thousands dying at sea in search of sanctuary, as well as the image of the body of baby Aylan Kurdi washed up on the beach was not enough to elicit a response against Assad! – Furthermore, after witnessing all these crimes against humanity executed by Assad, the Trump administration stated that removing this brutal dictator was not a priority for the US government! – Furthermore, in 2013 when chemical weapons were used against innocent civilians in Ghouta by the Syrian regime and the world witnessed the same scenes as in Khan Sheikhoun of children and babies gasping for air – Trump did not support military action against Assad! – Furthermore, during his election campaign and on entering office, Trump called for the banning of Syrian refugees from entering the US – those same refugees which were facing slaughter, torture, rape, starvation, and gassing by the Assad regime! – Furthermore, the US has its own history on the use of chemical weapons…..the use of Agent Orange in the Vietnam War; White Phospherous in Falluja; and depleted Uranium in the Iraq war. Also its ‘moral conscience’ seems to have been moribund when its ally israel dopped white phospherous on the Muslims of Gaza! – Furthermore, Madeline Albright, former US Secretary of State stated that the deaths of 1/2 a million children in Iraq as a result of US sanctions was a price worth paying for US political interests in the region. Capitalist governments have shown time and again that they have no ethical foreign policy and that their moral compass revolves solely around self-driven political and economic gains – without exception. Under capitalism, the moral conscience of governments, including when it comes to foreign policy decisions is in a permanent vegetative state….awaking only to the smell of money or power. So it should be clearly understood that this US airstrike is not the result of Trump and his administration suddenly developing a ‘moral conscience’ rather it is driven by the same motives as underlie all US foreign policy objectives…..pure unadulterated self-motivated national interests!

  5. Muslim-Christian Debate, Here

    Do you think Prophet Jesus and his God are the same person ?
  6. Some of the news coming out of China this month demonstrates the difference between more western, free, open societies and repressive regimes. If you’re in Europe or North America, for example, and you run into a problem with radical Islamic terrorists, you begin a protracted conversation about respect for religious freedom and tolerance combined with carefully crafted military and police enforcement activities designed to detect the “few bad apples” who are causing problems. In China, conversely, you go into the province where you’re experiencing problems and just begin banning public expressions of the faith. (CNN) No long beards. No veils in public places. No home-schooling. China is intensifying its crackdown against what it deems religious extremism in the far-west province of Xinjiang, which is home to 10 million Muslims. The latest measures — outlined in a sweeping new anti-extremism legislation — take effect Saturday and come on the heels of a series of steps to increase surveillance in the region that include the surrender of passports and mandatory GPS trackers in cars. “They’re doubling down on security in Xinjiang,” said James Leibold, an associate professor at Australia’s Le Trobe University, whose research focuses on China’s Uyghur minority. Xinhiang, also known as the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, is the traditional home of the Uyghurs. (You may know some of them from the diaspora they’ve experienced, with some communities settling in the United States.) This particular Muslim group has come under strict scrutiny by the Chinese government after significant unrest and occasional violence in the region. As noted above, the Chinese have a far less “generous” attitude toward anyone who upsets the communist apple cart in the slightest and their version of a Bill of Rights is generally restricted to your right to do whatever the government tells you to do. The crackdown is particularly brutal to the thinking of most westerners, though. The list of what’s being restricted and how people are being monitored goes far beyond a simple ban on long beards and facial veils or forcing all Muslims to have GPS trackers in their vehicles. Check some of these out. The following activities are now banned: Advocating or propagating extremist thoughts Wearing or forcing others to wear full-face coverings Hyping up religious fanaticism through growing beards or choosing names in an abnormal way Not allowing children to receive state education, interfering with state education; Deliberately interfering or harming the implementation of family planning policies; Publishing, downloading or reading articles, publications and audio-video material containing extremist content; As CNN’s coverage goes on to explain, the Chinese aren’t terribly worried about dotting the i’s or crossing the t’s when putting new rules in place. What qualifies as “extremist thoughts” for these purposes? Don’t worry. The police will let you know when they arrive. Choosing a new name for your child? Don’t pick an “abnormal” one. And forget about home schooling. Your child will attend the state operated school and receive the proper levels of communist indoctrination. And if your clothing looks “too Muslim” you’ll soon be having a chat with the authorities. No matter how concerned you may be about terrorism in the west, don’t be admiring the tactics of the Chinese. Yes, they will probably have far fewer problems with domestic terror attacks than any western nations, but their people pay an awful price for that security in return. http://hotair.com/archives/2017/04/01/so-china-is-basically-banning-Islam-in-one-western-province/
  7. This Muslim Politician Nailed Why The “Islam Is Not A Race” Argument Doesn’t Work Is it racist? Yeah, Australia's first female Muslim MP thinks hateful attacks against Muslims are "racist". Last week Labor’s Dr Anne Aly sparked conservative outrage as parliament debated reforming Australia’s Racist Discrimination Act, by suggesting attacks aimed at Muslims should also be covered under the law. Aly sat down for the latest episode of BuzzFeed Australia’s political podcast Is It On?, laying out *her* argument for anti-Muslim hatred being considered racist. She is also well aware of the "but Islam is not a race" retort used by trolls online: Because (attacks on Muslims) have the same motivations as racism and the same impacts of racism. So you can define racism as only being about a certain category or in terms of its mobilisers and its impacts. If you look at its mobilisers then you would consider hate speech against Muslims, racism. Dr Aly, who worked as de-radicalisation expert before entering parliament last year, brushed off a claim by Liberal MP Tim Wilson that she’s actually arguing for blasphemy laws. She pointed to the fact that hatred against Jewish people and Sikhs could both be protected under the Act's controversial 18C, despite neither being "a race". "In the same way that Jewish people and Sikhs are also covered under 18C because they have established they are one people, in other words to be considered one kind of race," Aly said. https://www.buzzfeed.com/markdistefano/aly-on-Islam?utm_term=.jnzY0zRxkD#.qrM572nvKJ
  8. Professor Arthur Alison is the head of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the University of London. For several years he had been the president of the British Society for Psychological and Spiritual Studies. In the course of his study of religions, he got acquainted with Islam. When he compared Islam with the religions and creeds he had studied, he found it suited his inborn nature and satisfied his requirements. He was invited to the First Islamic International Conference on the Medical Illimitability in the Quran held in Cairo in September 1985 under the auspices of the Egyptian Medical Syndicate. In the conference he presented a paper on the psychological and spiritual methods of therapy in the light of the Holy Quran, in addition to another paper on sleep and death in the light of Verse 39:42 in the Quran which he presented in collaboration with Dr. Mohammed Yahya Sharafi. The facts presented were an eye opener to him. At the concluding session of the Conference, attended by Sheikh Jad Al-Haq, the Egyptian Minister of Awqaf, Dr. Mohammed Ahmady and Dr. Mohammed Yahya Sharafi, Professor Alison declared that Islam is the religion of truth and inborn nature with which Allah has created man. Then he uttered the two testimonies, saying that he bears witness that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah. In an interview given to the Arabic-weekly, Al-Muslimoon, he narrated the story of his conversion to Islam saying: “In the course of my study of psychology and related subjects as the president of the British Society for Psychological and Spiritual Studies, I got acquainted with religions. I studied Hinduism, Buddhism and some other religions and creeds. When I studied Islam, I compared it to other religions. During the conference on Medical Illimitability in the Quran, I could realize that the difference was great. Then I was convinced that Islam is the most proper religion that befits my inborn nature and conduct. In the heart of my heart I had felt that there is a God controlling the Universe. He is the Creator. Therefore, when I studied Islam, I found that it did not conflict with reason and science. I believe that is the revealed religion from the one and only God. As I witnessed the truth, I uttered the two testimonies. The moment I uttered Shahadah, I was overwhelmed by a strange and ineffable feeling mingled with ease, comfort and satisfaction.” He went on to say that the material world is now in a critical stage, what they say and see, does not explain the facts precisely. Here lies the responsibility of Muslims who could meet the wondering and perplexed humanity. Prof. Abdullah Alison added that he, along with Dr. Mohammed Yahya, had presented in the conference on the Medical Illimitability in the Quran a paper focusing on the meaning of the Quranic verse: {It is Allah Who takes away the souls at the time of their death, and those that die not during their sleep. He keeps those (souls) for which He has ordained death and sends the rest for a term appointed. Verily, in this are signs for a people who think deeply.} (Quran 39:42) Through this verse, he said, they could prove that death and sleep are similar phenomena in which souls depart from the body. In the case of sleep, the soul returns to the body but in death it does not. This verse reminds us that “taking the souls” means both sleep and death. This fact has been proved through parapsychological studies which are related to three main domains. source http://www.aboutislam.net/reading-Islam/my-journey-to-Islam/the-verse-that-led-professor-arthur-alison-to-Islam/
  9. The Ayah That Led Professor Arthur Alison To Islam

    LIFE AFTER DEATH: Scientists reveal shock findings from groundbreaking study Life may continue even after death - just in sleep mode LONDON March 9: Doctors have found scientific evidence that people's brains can continue to work after they are clinically dead. A patient showed persistent brain activity for ten minutes after their heart stopped and experienced brain waves we normally get during deep sleep. Canadian doctors studied the brain activity and heart beat of four patients in intensive care after they turned off their life support machines. Brain inactivity preceded the heart stopping in three out of the four cases. However, in one of the cases, single delta wave bursts persisted after the heart had stopped and the patient was clinically dead. We normally get these brain waves in a deep sleep. Researchers from the University of Western Ontario in Canada assessed electric impulses in the brain in relation to the beating of someone's heart after life-sustaining therapy was removed. Brain inactivity preceded the heart stopping in three of the four cases. However, in one of the cases, the patient's brain continued to work after their heart stopped. 'In one patient, single delta wave bursts persisted following the cessation of both the cardiac rhythm and arterial blood pressure (ABP),' the researchers said. There was significant differences in electrical activity in the brain between the 30-minute period before and the 5-minute period after the heart stopped. 'It is difficult to posit a physiological basis for this EEG [brain] activity given that it occurs after a prolonged loss of circulation', according to the paper which was published in the National Centre for Biotechnology Information. Across the four patients recordings of their brain were very different - suggesting we all experience death in unique ways. The experiment raises difficult questions about when someone is dead and therefore when it is medically and ethically correct to use them for organ donation. As many as a fifth of people who survive cardiac arrests report having had an other-worldly experience while being 'clinically' dead. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4292814/Could-life-death-Brain-activity-continues.html
  10. Ypsilanti — Authorities are calling in federal law enforcement officials to lead an investigation into a fire at an Ypsilanti Masjid. Pittsfield Township Fire Chief Sean Gleason says there is no indication this early on in the investigation that the cause of the fire at the Islamic Center of Ypsilanti is suspicious. But because of its designation as a Masjid, officials contacted the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations today asked local, state and federal fire investigators and law enforcement authorities to probe the fire as a possible act of arson. “”We urge state and federal agencies to use their full resources to investigate this fire to determine a cause and, if it is determined to be arson, a possible motive,” CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid said in a statement. “Anyone who has information about this fire, or saw anything suspicious at the time of the blaze, should immediately contact law enforcement authorities.” The fire department was called to the Masjid shortly before 4 p.m. Saturday. When firefighters arrived, they found the middle section of the building in flames. Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the fire. Nobody was inside the building at the time. An agent from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigates a fire at a Masjid in Pittsfield Township, Sunday, March 12, 2017. (Photo: Courtesy of Ronnie Dahl / ATF) A dozen ATF agents were on the scene Sunday, with some focused on determining the cause of the fire and others canvassing the neighborhood for witnesses, said spokeswoman Ronnie Dahl. She said anyone with information is asked to contact the ATF tipline 1-888-ATF-TIPS or report the information through the Report-It App (a free download). https://islamicnafahat.wordpress.com/2017/03/12/usa-ypsilanti-mosque-fire-feds-called-in-to-investigate/
  11. A man suspected of burning the Victoria Islamic Center is a homegrown product with an apparent hatred of Muslims, according to testimony Thursday in federal court. News of the arrest is allowing congregation members to start to shake off the fear that has pervaded their lives, mosque spokesman Abe Ajrami said. “This incident really shook us to the core,” Ajrami said at a news conference at the site of the burned Masjid. “I hope people understand that this is not something we watched on TV or read in the newspaper. This is something we lived daily.” Prosecutors presented evidence Thursday alleging Victoria resident Marq Vincent Perez, 25, burglarized the Masjid twice in January and set the building on fire the second time. A March 3 raid on Perez’s North Jecker Street home recovered homemade explosive devices and electronics reported stolen from the Masjid. After the fire was ruled an arson in early February, investigators have searched for the person or people responsible. Before Perez’s arrest, investigators have held back from describing the arson as a hate crime. “If you ask our honest opinion, we were hoping that a miracle would happen and this would not be a hate crime,” Ajrami said. Despite Perez’s lack of a criminal record, a federal judge ultimately found him to be a “serious danger” to the community and likely to flee if released, ordering him kept in U.S. Marshals’ custody. Perez is charged with the possession of a destructive, incendiary device. That sole charge stems from a Jan. 15 incident in which Perez is suspected of attempting to set a car on fire by igniting fireworks taped together. A confidential informant who admitted to burglarizing the Masjid Jan. 22 and 28 with Perez also identified Perez as the arsonist, special agent Rick Miller of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives testified Thursday. https://islamicnafahat.wordpress.com/2017/03/10/american-terrorist-arrested-for-burning-texas-mosque/

  15. تحت عنوان وقح يقول : "يسوع المسيح ، إعلان النبأ السعيد للمسيح للمسلمين"، وهي الصياغة الملتوية لقول "تنصير المسلمين"، أقيمت في مدينة ليون بفرنسا يومي 4 و5 فبراير 2017 ندوة تتخللها حلقات نقاشية امتدت طوال اليومين، تناولتها الجرائد الفرنسية والكنسية تحت عنوان واحد له مغزاه : "تبشير المسلمين : زمن الحصاد قد حان"، وهو العنوان الذي اسفل صورة مبني الكنيسة.. أى انهم يحصدون نتيجة ثمار تبشيرهم بدخول المسلمين دينهم القائم على الشرك بالله.. أثناء الندوة واللافتة عليها عبارة تبشير المسلمين .. فبعد أن قام مجمع الفاتيكان الثاني (1965) بإصدار قرار مجمعي، لا نقاش فيه، حول تنصير العالم وتنصير المسلمين، وفرض هذه المهمة رسميا على كافة المسيحيين في العالم وعلى كافة الكنائس المحلية، بدأ تناول الموضوع على استحياء، حتى في الغرب. وفي نفس ذلك الوقت بدأت شيطنة الإسلام والمسلمين الى درجة النفور، بعد التلفع بشرعية دولية بأحداث 11/9/2001، التي افتعلوها عمدا من أجل ذلك الهدف الإجرامي الجبروت، ها نحن نطالع رسميا في مواقعهم وفي جرائدهم نبأ "تنصير المسلمين" المقيمين والمهاجرين حديثا.. ومن البديهي أن يتبادر الي الذهن المسلمين في فرنسا فحسب، لكن الذي يدور على أرض الواقع هو تنصيرهم في كل مكان بعد صدور قرار المجمع الفاتيكاني الذي لا نقاش فيه بل والذي بات يتم تنفيذه بأيدي بعض المسلمين الذين اشتروا الكفر بالإيمان القائم على التوحيد وعلى أن الله أحد، لم يلد ولم يولد ولم يكن له كفواً أحد... وهذه الندوة هي ثمار دورات تعليمية تدريبية تقام طوال العام، بدأت منذ عشر سنوات يتعلمون فيها كيفية التعامل مع المسلمين وكيفية تفنيد القرآن الكريم وتكذيبه في كل ما يتعلق بكشفه التلاعب الذي تم في المسيحية بكل دقة من شرك بالله عز وجل أو من تحريف للنصوص. وتنتهي هذه الدورات التعليمية، القائمة على الغش والتلاعب، بذلك اللقاء الذي يسهم فيه أحد من تم تنصيرهم. ويقول جي ستريمدورفر، أحد هؤلاء: " نحن لسننا في معركة صليبية، وإنما في طريقنا الى الأمان، والأمر يتعين علينا أن نتعرّف على الآخر ونتقبله كما هو لنقوده الى الأمن والإيمان.. انهم ليسوا فريسة نقتنصها".. أي إن الأمن والأمان بات في المسيحية بعد ان تم تشويه صورة الإسلام باختلاقهم منظمات داعش وتدعيم الغرب الصليبي المتعصب لها بالسلاح والمعدات والتدريبات اللازمة، بعد القيام بعمليات برمجة لعقولهم.. وما أكثر ما بات يفضحهم من كتابات دامغة.. والجدير بالذكر أن تقام هذه اللقاءات وخاصة الأخيرة منها بتضافر جهود كاثوليك وبروتستانت، تطبيقا لقرار توحيد الكنائس.. فعلى الرغم من انقسام الكنائس المسيحية الى 349 كنيسة مختلفة عقائديا، إلا ان البابا يوحنا بولس الثاني قد طالب بتوحيد الكنائس، تنفيذا لأحد قرارات مجمع الفاتيكان الثاني، لكي يتصدوا للمد الإسلامي (راجع كتاب الجغرافيا السياسية للفاتيكان).. والغريب ان يقوم باباوات ما بعد المجمع بحثّ المسيحيين على تنصير المسلمين مستخدمين لأتباعهم عبارات: "لا تخافوا".. "لا تخشوا شيئا" ! ولعل تلك الرهبة الدفينة التي تدفعهم الى استخدام مثل هذه الكلمات هو ادراكهم للجُرم الذي يقترفونه بفرض الباطل الذي يفر منه الأتباع حتى باتوا يلقبون ذلك الخروج من المسيحية بعبارة: "النزيف الصامت للكنيسة".. ومن الأهداف المعلنة لذلك الجهاز الكنسي الذي يتولى هذه الندوات : 1 ـ "أنه يتعيّن على الكاثوليك، أفرادا وقساوسة، مسئولية ومساندة اجتذاب من يدخلون المسيحية والعمل على حمايتهم، خاصة إن الإسلام يحرّم الخروج منه والدخول في المسيحية".. 2 ـ "العمل على إقناع السلطات المدنية والسياسية أن تغيير العقيدة هو من صميم الحرية الشخصية، وعلى الدولة الفرنسية حماية المسلمين الذين يتحولون الى المسيحية".. 3 ـ "التصرف بحيث يتم إقناع بعض القيادات الإسلامية الشهيرة لمساندة مبدأ حرية تغيير العقيدة والخروج من الإسلام على انه حرية شخصية".. وأهم ما نخرج به من عبارة "حرية شخصية" هذه، أنها باتت باباً مفتوحا على مصراعيه للقضاء على الإسلام والمسلمين شكلا وموضعا، معتبرين أن الانفلات الجنسي، بكل ما يتضمنه من شذوذ وقذارة وهدم الأسرة كيان وأساس المجتمع، والخروج عن الإسلام، دين الله الذي لم يعرف أي تلاعب ولا تغيير منذ أنزله المولى عز وجل حتى يومنا هذا، هو مجرد حرية شخصية.. والأدهى من ذلك انهم يعتمدون في هذا التدمير على بعض من يبيعون دينهم وكرامتهم من أجل حفنة وعود تافهة.. ومن أهم الموضوعات التي تم تناولها في هذا اللقاء طوال يومين والذي أعد له مؤسسه محمد كريستوف بيلك: كيفية تحصين المسيحيين الذين يعيشون على مقربة من المسلمين وكيفية مواجهتهم للإسلام ؛ أيّ دعامة مسيحية لاهوتية يمكن استخدامها في العالم الإسلامي ؛ الأسئلة التي يطرحها المسلمون وهم مقبلون على التنصير ؛ عشرة نقاط أساسية لتسليح المسيحيين أثناء عملية تنصير المسلمين ؛ نظرة الى الإسلام من الداخل، القاها أحد المسلمين السابقين. واختتمت الدورة بتساؤل حول كيفية مواصلة عملية التبشير اليوم وغدا ؟ أما الموائد المستديرة فقد دارت أساسا بحضور بعض المسلمين المهاجرين وتناولت عمليات التبشير والتنصير في الشارع، ومن الباب للباب، والتنصير في أماكن العبادة، والتنصير عن طريق الإنترنت.. ومن أكثر العبارات سخرية، تلك التي قالها أحده الذين تنصروا : "نحن لا نخشى الإسلام لكننا ننتقده".. وتُعتصر العبارات ألما وهي تستعرض ما خسرناه بانسياقنا خلف ذلك الغرب الصليبي المتعصب.. خلف ذلك الغرب الذي ألف الخيانة في كل شيء.. زينب عبد العزيز 14 فبراير 2017 http://saaid.net/daeyat/zainab/219.htm

  21. Committed Sins After Taking Shahada

    Salam alaikum Islam is a faith which serves as an alarm clock reminding the creation of their true purpose. It helps to focus the heart, discipline the mind, and perfect the morals and actions. The outcome of such a submission is the dawn of a very special relationship between the Creator and the created. For one cannot develop a true relationship with another until the latter is acknowledged. Thus, by knowing Allah and submitting to Him alone, one will truly feel the heavy shackles of sin lightened and escape from the dungeon that one’s soul had languished in. “There is no compulsion in religion; truly the right way has become clearly distinct from error; therefore, whoever disbelieves in the Shaitan and believes in Allah he indeed has laid hold on the firmest handle, which shall not break off, and Allah is Hearing, Knowing.” (Al-Baqarah 2:256) “If one firmly believes in Allah, He will guide his heart.” (At-Taghabun 64:11) Since we are bound to fall into error, it is important to remember that our Creator is an understanding and loving Lord. This mercy and understanding are exhibited for Allah is ready to forgive. One of the great bounties that Allah has bestowed upon His servants is forgiveness for evil thoughts and actions. It is one of the great mercies of Allah that we are not called to account for the evil inclinations that appear in our hearts. And, in fact, such evil inclinations if ignored and not acted upon can bear sweet fruit! Fighting against evil inclinations brings one closer to Allah. Prophet said :Allah the Almighty says: “I am as My servant thinks I am. I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself. And if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an assembly better than it. And if he draws near to Me a hand’s span, I draw near to him an arm’s length. And if he draws near to Me an arm’s length, I draw near to him a fathom’s length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed.” (Al-Bukhari) God said: Say, "O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah. Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful."39:53
  22. Proofs Of The Bible's Corruption

    Priest Feeds Congregation Rat Poison to Show They Can Defy Death… They All Die Priest Light Monyeki is from Soshaguve, South Africa. And it seems to be his calling to show his followers that he and those who believe in his teachings were superhumans able to ward off death. Mark 16:18 "when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well." During the High Place Conference, which is also referred to as his “Supernatural Service,” Monyeki proclaimed that they must not fear death, as they will not die. He then started pouring Rattax (a popular rat poison) into a bottle of water, which he then urged his believers to drink. This is Priest Light Monyeki, a non-believer in the power of rat poison. Priest Feeds Congregation Rat Poison to Show They Can Defy Death... They All Die He proclaimed, We do not need to proclaim faith because we are believers. Death has no power over us. Monyeki put some rat poison into a water bottle and then challenged his believers to drink from the poisoned water. Priest Feeds Congregation Rat Poison to Show They Can Defy Death... They All Die Monyeki then took a swig from the bottle of poisoned water. And with the power of belief and the absolute faith they had in Monyeki, many followers ran forward to take a drink as well. The congregation, in their absolute faith in Monyeki, rushed forward to drink the poison. Priest Feeds Congregation Rat Poison to Show They Can Defy Death... They All Die Many of them were enthralled by the idea that they could defy death. Priest Feeds Congregation Rat Poison to Show They Can Defy Death... They All Die Predictably enough, in the evening, many members of the congregation started to complain of stomach pains, and later 5 of them were declared to be dead. 13 more of the member of the congregation were taken to the hospital for ingesting Monyeki’s rat poison ####tail. Monyeki, however, refused to take the blame for the horrific effects of what he did. Instead, all he had to say was, Too much of any good thing could be bad. We’re guessing that by “good thing” he’s referring to the ability to escape from death. The incident has sparked an investigation, though no arrests have been made. Sadly, it looks like Monyeki may walk away a free man as the people who died or became sick from the rat poison were the ones who willingly ingested the concoction! Now, this reminds me of that controversial Pastor who ‘Heals’ HIV and Cancer patients by spraying them with insecticide. http://springsbury.com/priest-feeds-congregation-rat-poison-to-show-they-can-defy-death-they-all-die/
  23. Salam Alaykom

    wa alaikum assalam brother, welcome to the forum :)
  24. By Laura El Alam (a wife and mother of five in Southern California. She is a writer for London-based SISTERS Magazine andAboutislam and was previously a columnist for InFocus News. She embraced Islam in 2000.) “Creators should have nothing to do with Islamic fashion,” asserted Pierre Bergé, co-founder of Yves Saint Laurent in an interview with radio station Europe 1. “Designers are there to make women more beautiful, to give them their freedom, not to collaborate with this dictatorship which imposes this abominable thing by which we hide women and make them live a hidden life.” The “abominable thing” Bergé is referring to — modest Islamic women’s clothing — has recently been appropriated by major designers including DKNY, Dolce & Gabbana, Tommy Hilfiger, and Marks & Spencer. Fashion brands are gradually recognizing that they have a lucrative, untapped market in Muslim consumers and are producing clothes to satisfy that profitable niche. From full-body swimsuits and ankle-length dresses to abâyas and headscarves, the fashion world is starting to incorporate loose and modest garments that are a major departure from the typical sexy runway fashions. But not everyone is happy about it. In her April 14, 2016 article “What Freedom Looks Like” for the New York Times, author Vanessa Friedman explores the backlash that is coming from some people in France’s fashion industry and government. Referring to Pierre Bergé, Friedman writes, “He … implied that the designers were exploiting a misogynist system that, for financial gain, forces women to hide their bodies.” Laurence Rossignol, the French minister for women’s rights, jumped into the fashion fray. In an interview with BFTV, she likened modest clothing to a prison: “What’s at stake is social control over women’s bodies,” she said in an interview on the French news network. “When brands invest in this Islamic garment market, they are shirking their responsibilities and are promoting women’s bodies being locked up.” Rossignol then infamously compared Muslim women to “negroes” who supported slavery, causing a global uproar and accusations of racism. She later recanted that particular part of her statement. Reading the statements of these two French public figures, I am torn between derision and disgust. On one hand, I wonder how they cannot see the irony of their statements. Bergé laments a “misogynist system that, for financial gain, forces women to hide their bodies,” but apparently fails to see any problem with a high-profit fashion industry that has, for centuries, persuaded women to reveal their bodies in order to serve as sex objects, sell clothes, and entice the male gaze. When Rossignol decries “social control over women’s bodies,” doesn’t she see how women’s bodies have been controlled in various ways throughout Western history? Isn’t banning the headscarf in French schools an example of “social control?” Isn’t requiring all swimmers in French pools to wear tiny, tight, and extremely revealing swimsuits another example? On the other hand, I am disgusted with Bergé’s and Rossignol’s depressing and incorrect depiction of Muslim women. The image they are associating with a Muslim woman is of an uneducated, voiceless, oppressed person who has no say in her wardrobe or her life choices. Haven’t they observed the countless Muslim women doctors, professors, engineers, intellectuals, businesswomen, and highly educated and talented women who choose to cover? Don’t they see the millions of empowered Muslim women around the world who have the “freedom” to uncover in their country of residence if they wish, and yet often willingly embrace a modest wardrobe? Unlike Bergé and Rossignol, I view all women as intelligent beings with free will and intellect. I do not think they are so easily duped or forced into dressing or acting certain ways. Even when the runway models are waif thin and wearing extremely revealing clothing, Western non-Muslim women can still choose to dress however they wish. I would not, as Bergé does, define them as “forced” to do things. And although the fashion industry has been criticized widely for creating and perpetuating unrealistic ideals of beauty, I still would not describe Western women as being “locked up” by the shackles of fashion. They have a choice and a mind, should they choose to use them. What about Muslim women? Do we have any choice in our clothing? Are we, as Rossignol said, “consenting slaves”? Are our long dresses, tunics, and abayas truly a prison for us? Do we need to be liberated by the likes of Bergé and Rossignol? First, if the opponents of Islamic clothing bothered to ask Muslim women their opinion, they would learn something that might surprise them: the vast majority of Muslim women who dress modestly do it willingly and for one reason: to please their Creator. “Yes, but what if their husband or father or government is forcing them to cover?” someone is bound to argue. To that question I would reply, “A Muslim woman’s duty to cover is mandated by her Creator. Regardless of what others in her life might do or say, dressing modestly is an act of obedience to Allah. Some women might indeed be exploited or mistreated by individuals or governments, but any oppression of women is un-Islamic.” Besides, do people seriously think that non-Muslim women are free from oppression, coercion, and control? What about uniforms that require women to show their legs, arms, and chests to look appealing for customers? What about egotistical husbands who want their wives to look like “arm candy” at all times? What about mothers who constantly pressure their daughters to lose weight, wear makeup, and squeeze into the latest styles so that they can find a husband, thrive socially, or be a “credit” to their parents? Aren’t these females victims, too?” So let’s look at a realistic view of Muslim women. Of course, there are some Muslimahs who choose not to cover at all, and their freedom of choice is obvious. The majority of Muslim women who do dress modestly do so with their eyes wide open. Their goals are the noblest ones possible: To please their Creator and to earn Paradise. By covering their bodies, they are eschewing public opinion, pop culture, and a superficial understanding of beauty. They are refusing to exhibit their attractiveness or to sell their bodies. Their faith tells them that their worth is not based on their outward appearance, but on their character and morals. Their inner beauty (the most important one) is apparent in their actions and manners, and their outward beauty is revealed on their own terms, only to those who can be entrusted with it. That is empowerment, not prison. Bergé and Rossignol would like to cast themselves as super heroes whose noble task is to liberate the poor Muslim women who are living what Bergé calls “a hidden life.” What, I would ask them, is wrong with a hidden life? Should everything be made public? Aren’t there certain things that even French people would like to keep private? Why should women’s bodies and beauty be expected to be on display for other’s enjoyment? Are men entitled to that? If, theoretically, all women started dressing modestly, who, exactly, would find that disappointing? Is this whole issue really about women’s feelings and empowerment, or about men’s insistence on keeping them half undressed? If a woman chooses to cover her own body in compliance with her faith, isn’t that her right, her freedom? It comes down to a matter of semantics, in a way. What some people call an “abominable thing,” others call “modesty.” What some call “locked up” others call “liberated.” Even the very first word of Bergé’s quote proves that he has a completely different mindset from a Muslim. He uses the term “creators” to describe designers like himself. It is their duty, asserts Bergé, to “make women more beautiful and to give them their freedom.” What a lofty goal for mere mortals with a flair for design! Muslims, of course, have a completely different definition of “Creator.” We live our life to please the One Creator, Allah, and our beauty and freedom are gifts from Him and contingent upon Him. No miniskirt or makeup can make us beautiful if we are rotten on the inside. No politicians or fashionistas can free us if our hearts are slaves to a false god. Therein lies the crux of the matter and why Bergé and Rossegnol will never see why our freedom and our power are in the very garments they abhor. http://aljumuah.com/liberal-discontent-with-designer-modesty/
