Yuvan Shankar Raja: I converted to Islam in a way because of my mother
My father is a staunch Hindu and is so superstitious that even if a
glass breaks, he will call a pandit. Both my parents were ritualistic,
but right from childhood, I used to always have a thought that beyond
all this there is a supernatural power who is running the whole world.
How can God be in any form? That search was always there in me. What
triggered my conversion was my mom's sudden passing away. I had come to
Mumbai for some work. When I returned to Chennai, my mom was coughing
badly and me and my sister rushed her to the hospital. I was driving the
car. We reached the hospital and I was sitting next to her holding her
hand and the next second her hand fell and she had died. I was crying
but wondered where her soul went within seconds as she was alive just a
few seconds back. I was in search of the answers and I should say that I
got a direct calling from Allah. It was a spiritual experience. My
friend had just been to Mecca and he said to me, 'You seem to be really
low. You have to move on.' He gave me the musalla (the prayer mat) and
said, 'This one mat I used in Mecca and it has touched Mecca so if you
are feeling really heavy, just sit on it.' I kept the mat in one corner
of my room and forgot all about it. A few months later I was speaking to
one of my cousins about my mother and I started feeling really heavy. I
entered my room and coincidentally saw the mat which all this while I
had missed even though it was kept in the same corner. I sat on it for
the first time just started crying saying, 'Ya Allah please forgive my
sins.' That was 2012. I started reading the Quran and the translations
and it connected with me really fast. I started practising Islam and
learnt how to pray and by January 2014, felt sure about converting.
Since I am known as Yuvan Shankar Raja in films, I have still not
changed my name officially in my passport and other records, but maybe
later, I might do that too. My father was the last one I told in my
house to. I told him, 'I have started reading the Quran and it gives me a
lot of peace.' He said to me, 'Yuvan, I am not comfortable with you
becoming Islamic.' My brother and his wife were very supportive. It's
odd but in some way I used to get that spiritual feeling that it was my
mom, who held my hand, and said, 'Yuvan, you are alone. I want you to
stand here under the tree called Islam.'

Egypt court bans Muslim Brotherhood's political wing
A court in Egypt has dissolved the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the Muslim Brotherhood's political wing.
The ruling will effectively prevent the banned Islamistmovement from formally participating in parliamentary elections expectedlater this year.
The government declared the Brotherhood a terrorist group in December.
It was accused of orchestrating a wave of violence todestabilise the country after the military overthrew President MohammedMorsi in July 2013.
The Brotherhood has denied any connection to the jihadistmilitants based in the Sinai Peninsula who have killed hundreds ofsecurity personnel.
At the same time, more than 1,400 people have been killed and16,000 detained in a crackdown by the authorities on Mr Morsi'ssupporters.
President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, a former military chief who was elected head of state in May, has vowed to wipe out the group.
Analysis: Sally Nabil, BBC Arabic, Cairo
Dissolving the Freedom and justice Party (FJP) was expected.The political wing of the banned Muslim Brotherhood movement can nolonger compete in the next parliamentary elections, expected to be heldbefore the end of this year.
Its members can run either as individual candidates or form anew political party. But the latter is highly unlikely, given theseverity of the crackdown on the Brotherhood.
The FJP's legal team strongly criticised Saturday's verdict,saying that it is politicised and is meant to serve the goals of thecurrent regime. There was no longer a place for pluralism in Egypt, itsaid. According to the new constitution, no party can be formed on areligious basis.
Saturday's ruling by the Cairo Administrative Court came aftera report by its advisory panel that noted the FJP's leaders had beenaccused, and in some cases convicted, of murder and inciting violence.
A police investigation found the party's headquarters and offices had been used to store weapons, it said.
The court ordered that the FJP's assets be handed to the state.
The case was prompted by a complaint by the government'sCommittee of Political Parties Affairs, which accused the FJP of"irregularities".
The FJP was founded in 2011 following the uprising that forced Hosni Mubarak from power.
It went on to dominate the subsequent elections for the lowerand upper houses of parliament - Egypt's first democratic polls in sixdecades.
But in June 2012 the Supreme Constitutional Court (SCC) ruledthat the vote for the lower house, the People's Assembly, had beenunconstitutional and it was dissolved.
The upper house, the Shura Council, was dissolved by the SCCshortly after Mr Morsi was ousted in July 2013, and ceased to existafter the constitution was amended in January.
Mr Morsi, a former FJP chairman, is currently facing fourseparate criminal trials on various charges. Several other Brotherhoodleaders, as well as hundreds of members, have been sentenced to death.http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-28722935

Why am I delighted upon Erdogan’s victory?
A brother that I know, Dr Saleh al-Ayid, wrote the followingjust a few minutes after Turkey’s electoral authorities announced thatRecep Tayyip Erdogan won the general Presidential Turkish Election:
Muslims on social media, particularly Arabs, have been busyexchanging greetings and congratulations for the victory of Erdogan.News and comments about him and his victory even overtook the topic ofGaza. The question is, however: why? There are a multitude of reasonsfor this. Muslims have been wanting to prove to the whole world that ifthey were to be given the choice, they would choose a Muslim leader whois sincere in working for his Ummah.
Turkey is proof that if Muslims enjoy good leadership, they arecapable of transforming their countries from so-called ‘developing’ onesto advanced, powerful countries as Erdogan and his party did. It is amatter of a few short years in which Erdogan’s Justice and DevelopmentParty, elected into power in 2002, transformed Turkey from adebt-ridden, ruined country, shattered by valueless secularism anddeep-rooted corruption to one of the strongest countries in the world.In only 10 years, from 2002 to 2012, Turkish exports hit $152 billion,marking a ten-fold increase. Turkey’s overwhelming annual inflationrate of up to 100% was watered down to single figures, whilst its GDProse by over 45%. Erdogan is now resolute in bringing his economy intothe top 10 in the world by 2023, having completely erased its52-year-old debt to the IMF in 2013.
Born in 1954, Erdogan is the son of a coastguard in the city of Rize.During his early life he sold lemonade and buns for some pocket money,being a member of a poor family. Erdogan attended an Islamic school,before studying management at Istanbul’s Marmara University. Here he metTurkey’s first Islamist Prime Minister, Necmettin Erbakan, and beganhis fascinating political career. In 1994, he became the mayor ofIstanbul, converting the city from a slum into one of the world’s keydestinations for tourism, and a beauty of a city for local residents.His commitment to Islām and its values were relentless and in 1998 hewas detained for four months for reciting a poem on a public stage,containing line:
His release and rise in positions of leadership, from Prime Ministerin 2003-2014 to now President—the first to be directly elected by thepeople in Turkey’s history with 52% of the electorate voting for him.This landmark victory suggests that secularism is a foreign phenomenonfor our Islamic societies. Despite the fact that Turkey was once themother and heartland of secularism in the Muslim world, it can so easilyturn to Islam once the socio-economic pressure applied by thesecularists is lifted.
Many Muslims are ecstatic at the victory Erdogan has achieved. Itmarks a continuation to the unprecedented support Turkey has providedfor the Syrian revolution. Many analysts confirm that had theauthorities in Turkey acted against the interests of the Syrian peopleand their revolution, the tyrant regime in Syria would have regainedpower and wiped out the entire struggle. Turkey’s borders with Syria,particularly its southern border to Aleppo, are the major—if not theonly—‘breathing space’ for the Syrian Islamic revolution.
Palestinians in general and Gaza specifically are particularlyoverwhelmed with joy. For too long they have witnessed the entire worldturning against them while the very few who may support them do so forno political gain. No one can forget israel’s raid on the Turkish,Gaza-bound flotilla and the political aftermath that ensued. No one candeny that it is Erdogan’s government, more than any other in the worldtoday, that is ardently supporting Gaza and bitterly attacking israel asmuch as the rules of international politics allow. The victory ofErdogan has moreover come as a slap on the face of the many Arab andGulf countries that have paid millions and billions of dollars insupport of his main, secular competitor.
There is no doubt that despite the atrocities the Ummah isgoing through, Allāh is showing us rays of light, and glimmers of hope,to keep us optimistic and motivated and to give us the ability to bearthe responsibilities He commanded us to bear.
