  1. Salahudin And His Teacher

    Asalamu Alaikum, Nur ad-Din was the teacher of Salahudin. Both men seemed to great in their own right but i recently heard that towards the end of Nur ad-Din's life, he had bad blood between him and salahuddin. to me this does not make sense since after Nur ad-Din died salahuddin married his widow. Does anybody know this incident if they had problems between them that might have even reached to the level of war? Jazakairallah for the answer

  5. Saddam verdict date 'rigged' for Bush (www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.nzherald.co.nz/section/story.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=10409222"]Reuters [/url] | November 6, 2006 Saddam Hussein's defence team has urged a delay of his possible death sentence and said the ousted Iraqi leader believed today's expected verdict was timed to boost President George Bush before US mid-term elections. Saddam's lawyer Khalil al-Dulaimi repeated warnings that a death sentence against his client - which would come before Tuesday's US Congressional elections at a time when Bush faces mounting criticism over the Iraq war - would plunge the region into wider bloodshed. "We have requested at least a two-month adjournment to allow us to complete our presentations in the case in which our defence rights have been violated and in which our clients have been denied full legal defence," he said. US officials deny that Washington has any say over the timing of the verdict or the court's decisions, saying the American role was limited to logistics and security. "This court is a creature of the US military occupation, and the Iraqi court is just a tool and rubber stamp of the invaders," insisted Dulaimi. "The trial of the president should not proceed this way in a climate of mounting political pressure for a quick conviction that demolishes the trial's impartiality," he said. The credibility of the trial had been tarnished by delays, the murder of defence counsel, courtroom chaos and political interference and court bias against the defence, he added. "During all these months, the court has deliberately sought to limit our access and ability to defend the president ... this means that justice has not been done," he said. Saddam, 69, and seven co-accused have been charged with crimes against humanity for the killing of 148 Shi'ite villagers after an attempt on Saddam's life in the town of Dujail in 1982. Michael Scharf, a law professor who has trained judges and prosecutors in the Dujail case, said the trial, despite flaws, is one of the most important war crimes proceedings since the Nuremberg trials against top Nazis at the end of World War II. Dulaimi said the verdict was timed to boost President George W Bush before US mid-term elections on November 7 and urged a delay. Proceedings in the heavily fortified Baghdad courtroom have taken place against a backdrop of sectarian violence. Defence counsel, dominated by Saddam's fellow Sunnis, blamed Shi'ite gunmen for their colleagues' deaths. The first chief judge, a Kurd, resigned to protest government meddling. Far from being a catharsis for Iraqis scarred by Saddam's rule, the trial, many feel, has deepened animosities between communities. Some legal experts say it should have been held in a third country. Dulaimi has warned that a death sentence against Saddam, held in a US-run prison, would plunge Iraq into full-scale civil war. Security in the Green Zone, the courtroom's venue, has been tightened ahead of the verdict, which officials say should be announced today. The Defence Ministry said the army had cancelled all leave and put troops on alert. As Bush faces mounting criticism over the war, a guilty verdict two days ahead of tight US Congressional polls could be a vindication of his policy to overthrow Saddam. In a recent briefing, a US official close to the court said the trial against Saddam was historically more significant than those against former strongmen such as Slobodan Milosevic.
  6. Downloading...

    Asalamu Alaikum bros/sis' I haven't posted in like a year so insallah i can get back in the posting mood. Anyway I wondering what is your opinion on downloading Islamic lectures/videos from certain sites that post them or share them like sunnitorrents that even post things that you would normally have to pay for. I get the excuse, Knowledge is free, indeed it is, but if we look at the past people spent money (traveling, tutors) to gain knowledge so should we just boldy say it is ok for us to rip-off muslim organizations that are getting worse because they don't have the fund to continue Islamic programs because people just download their previous ones without paying. I'm not trying to bash, I mean if I find out it truly is ok, I would love to download these things for free.
  7. Just Amazing!

    Asalamu Alaikum, Awesome story... What verse and sura is that from?
  8. Step-parents

    Asalamu Alaikum, I was wondering if anybody could tell me the status of step-parents in Islam. We know that in Islam Parents, especially the mother are held in high positions of respect but what is the attitude towards your step-father or mother, is it the same or different. Jazakair'Allah in advance
  9. Whats The Difference?

    Asalamu alaikum, a brother once gave me a good example. Imagine having a time machine and seeing what happeans and then coming back, you see the people doing the same thing but they are not forced to do it, they are doing it by their own will and no one is forcing them. Similarily in a way, Allah knows what will happean because he is all-knowing, but he is not forcing you to do what you are doing. Allah forgive me if i made a mistake in this explanation.

    Assalamo Alaikum, Bro I was wondering if you know if there are any prisons in an Islamic State. I don't recall from my knowledge hearing anything about them. If we look at prisons today, we see some people coming out worse then when they came in. Jazakair'Allah for the answer.
  14. Do Athiest Need Morals?

    Peace to you to Eoin, From this I am getting the assumption that your proposing the idea of no such thing as a direct right and wrong. But then again I guess this is a hard thing to disscuss with if a person does not believe in a god to begin . There are people who believe in god and believe there should no relationship between the creator and creation (Deist I think they are called), not that I am supporting the idea.
  15. Do Athiest Need Morals?

    Salaam to everybody, A person can have morals, religious or not, but how can one be sure they are the correct morals? What you consider proper may be considered barbaric in a another nation or culture. We need a direct definition of what is right and wrong, an atheist can have morals but how does he know that they are right, for all you know, over and a course of time, he/she may change thesir mind. TO cerify right and wrong you need to go to the source of one who know this answer, if you believe in god and that he created you and knows you inside and out, who else are you going to trust. A person who is limited and capable of error or someone who is free of error?
