  1. Is There A Need For $14m Masjid?

    :D I would've been happier if it was $4m spent on the masjid and $10m for ongoing masjid projects We have to remember that property prices have shot up by hundreds of not thousands of percent inthe last 10 or 20 years, but $14m is still rather a lot (I will hesitate to call it ridculous as we are talking about a masjid here). :D :D
  2. Closed Topics?

    :D I think this will also result in duplicate topics surfacing because people are unable to append to an existing discussion. Thus you will have separate discussions branching off into multiple topics whereas users should be encouraged to contribute to existsing ones. :D
  3. No More Long Posts

    :D LOL I just received my *first ever* warning in over 1000 posts for spreading a self-written reply (on an the important subject of Islamic resourceson TV) over two posts because it couldn't fit just inside the character limit. I hope you do realise that this is a form of censorship and limiting such freedom of expression will not be popular amongst posters who actually like to read other's posts and write ones themselves. I have never been on any forum where this rule has been applied. From the rule of minimum characters to now the rule of maximum characters - this just smells of CONTROL. :D
  4. 4 Muslims Hacked

    :D A shame indeed. Hacking and putting a temporary message up is one thing - but deleting an entire messageboard of all its posts is the worst kind of malice. May Allah subhanhu wa'tala make it easy for the forum moderators, and may He guide the misguided idiot who has caused so much pain. A Note to all moderators: Don't lax on security - keep your boards updated with the latest patches, for the sake of Allah - BACKUP YOUR ENTIRE SERVER regularly (I recommend once a night) most ISPs offer this service for free. That way you will only lose 24 hours of posts. If someone knows the moderators of 4muslims, maybe they should inform them to ask their ISP if they can help. They may have tape-backup'd everything from just before the hack. Remember: BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP!!! :D
  5. Islam Channel

    (continued from above) Adhering to man made laws - well show me one country on this planet where Shariah is upheld? Even one? Even in muslim countries? Until there is such a place, does that mean anarchy should reign and we should ignore all man-made laws? Of course Islam Channel would not encourage law-breaking and as the channel is based in the UK - it has to adhere to all UK laws and not do things like insight violence against civilians, not kill, not steal etc etc. They certainly criticise UK laws and policies which go against Islam - and this freedom of speech is something not found in many so called "muslim" countries. Yes they do have "music" - however many of these are often nasheeds, and some of the groups they have only do use the daff. So you tell me, all of you who have normal TV but are ready to pounce on your brothers and sisters in Islam who have the intention and put in the hard work to bring an enthusiastic Islamic resource to your TV screens in a climate where Islamaphobia is rife and misunderstanding reigns. Is it such a bad thing? Are all Islam Channel employees and viewers apostates that should be executed? :D Give me a break. Watch it, maybe you'll like it, maybe you'll learn something - I certainly have, and I do not hesitate to recommend it to others. Allah knows best. :D
  6. Islam Channel

    :D Islam Channel is an excellent resource for people who wish to learn about Islam and want to have something decent on their TV. OK so it may not be perfect, it may have "music" on some of its adverts, there may be discussions where sisters (in Islamic dress) are in discussions with brothers, but the discussions are purely Islamic debates. There is one show where a brother and sister present side by side (lol and it gets many angry and frantic calls from viewers ready to kill) but people forget that those two presenters are actually married :D The "mortgages" the channel promotes are "mortgages" only by name to identify them as a methodology to buy a house, and usually involve the method by which a bank will buy a property for you outright (and own it) and then sell it you at a fixed (higher) price which you pay through installments - there is no interest involved. Sisters are always wearing full Islamic dress. I have never seen "excess laughter" on the Islam Channel. I have never seen programs encouraging joining any army on there (if I'm wrong, please post the reference). In fact I see many programs that highlight the atrocities commited by armies (such as the US and UK) and generally the channel frowns upon violence and war. Joining a Police force is not haram - it is a very worthy career (protecting the people from crime, supporting the victims of crime, improving understanding between the community and the police force) and as long as it doesn't compromise one's Islam (difficult I know) then there is nothing wrong with such a job (continued below due to dodgy anti-long post policy :D) edit by an admin: The statement above violates rule 7. Please read our "you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_forums.gawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?act=boardrules"]forum rules[/url] for more details.
  7. No More Long Posts

    :D I agree wholeheartedly with akhi AbdulMajid. This is a discussion forum - freedom of speech is something we, as Muslims, cherish - and to limit it in such a way is very strange indeed. I do agree on the cut and paste thing, and its very easy for a mod to spot a long cut and paste, and they should just delete it and leave the link there (after all, all quotes should include sources and links if possible), but I just tried to type a not-very long reply and was astonished that I was prevented in doing so. Hmmmm.. I understand your arguments, but unless this move is cost/hardware-space related, remove it - there is something decidely BIG BROTHER about this rule and I inherently don't like it. :D
  8. Islam in Argentina

    :D I have been to Buenos Aires, unfortunately I didn't get the opportunity to find any masjids or fellow muslims :D However as a city, people are generally friendly. The streets look very European (in fact they look almost exactly like Paris!) and there is some nice architecture. I suffered no prejudice at all being a muslim (in fact that goes for many other countries in South America). In fact a lot of people were interested in finding out why some muslims are against the American government (as many South American countries also feel oppressed by the USA and have similar anti-Bush stances). Thanks for the links above, if Allah gives me the opportunity to visit again, I will prepare time to visit some masjids inshAllah. :D
  9. April Fool

    :D More info on April Fools day: "you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_en.wikipedia(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/wiki/April_fool"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_en.wikipedia(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/wiki/April_fool[/url] This source does not concur with the original post. :D
  10. Death & The Pope

    I'm a bro. :D :D for the interpretations. Could you look in the source material that you have and tell us what basis are the scholars making their assumptions on? Is there another Hadith that can be cross referenced to suggest the real reason for the Prophet (saw) to stand up, apart from the reason he so mentions "is it not a living being?". I have not seen any narrations in Sahih collections that add anything to this hadith apart from this narrative - but I am open to examine any extra info you may have. :D :D :D
  11. Us Army To Produce Mid-east Comic

    :D "you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_en.wikipedia(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/wiki/Psyops"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_en.wikipedia(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/wiki/Psyops[/url] :D
  12. Shariah Tv Series 2!

    :D Interesting program - just finished watching. I may get flamed for saying this but I did enjoy it. Refreshing to hear muslims talking about how we can promote our values, ethics and principles whilst living in Britain in an inclusive way - rather than an exclusive isolationist methodology. Not sure if I agreed with every view that was put forward - but thats the beauty of debate and discussion. :D
  13. Non Muslims with Muslim names

    There are names that can be considered Muslim names. Such has Abdul <one of Allah's names>. Abdul means "slave of", so for example Abdul Rahman (slave of the All Merciful), Abdullah (slave of Allah) etc. :D :D
  14. Anj's Links

    :D A great blog: "you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.mereislam.info/"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.mereislam.info/[/url] :D
  15. Anj's Links

    :D One of the very few free Arabic/English translation sites: "you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.arabsgate(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/tarjm.htm"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.arabsgate(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/tarjm.htm[/url] Not sure how accurate it is as I can't speak Arabic :D but it has helped me convert Arabic text into English :D :D
