  3. Overcoming The Western Mindset And Fear Of Islam

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, Like you said yourself a book could be written on it exploring the different reasons behind it. Those who are the corrupters only seek the friendship of those who follow the influence of the devil, not those who seek to please the creator. USA and israel both have nothing better to do than scrounge every decent products on the less fortunate people, they are powerful, aiding one another to achieve their goals. They both hold the same ideologies, now it is best for them that they worked together rather than seek friendship with countries that may oppose their ways of dealing with the situations they’ve placed themselves in. There are different reasons, money, power, forcing their views and mindset on others etc. You’re welcome :D As for your question, it would be just as healthy as any other good believer. Whether they were Jews, Christians, Hindus before reverting, it would not matter. Yes, there aren’t many Jewish reverts but there are some, there was a Jewish extremist who reverted to Islam subhanallah a while ago, it was on the BBC website. Surely those who contemplate with the truth will find the true path with the guidance of the creator. ma'salamah
  4. Overcoming The Western Mindset And Fear Of Islam

    That is just an overview....and already you can see the contradiction with the teachings. The "you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_gawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?act=boardrules"]forum rules[/url] does not allow discussion of different sects as fitnah can ocur but you can PM one of the brothers or me if you need more info. The statement i made bold is for a reason i want to address first, people generalize and usually end up making assumption which is sometimes a lie. Not all isrealis are jews, there are muslims in Isreal and thus you'd also be condemning them. Jews/pagans/christians earned his anger or those who strayed. People just have a tendecy of only seeing the mistakes of the yahud (jews). That statement is wrong, simply because had Allah (swt) wanted them to be destroyed they would have been. So by wishing for them to be erased your questioning Allah (swt) intention. Surat fatiha, the last ayat speaks of the yahud (jews) and Room (christians) and their way of following the strayed path or having earned the wrath of ythe creator. It does not say that one exceeds the other in their disobidence, Allahu'"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.gawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/glossary/glossary_a001.html#alim"]Alim[/url]. Also Dawud, (as) scripture, Zabur (to be said to be the psalm) came before the Torah so it isn't about their early revelation....Also note that the yahud (jews) were more rebellious than the christians and pagans for they killed the prophets (pbuh) or so they thought and always refused to take what was haq (truth). Hence it is said they earned Allah (swt) anger....and verily Allah (swt) knows best. I hope to an extent i was helpful :D
  5. Overcoming The Western Mindset And Fear Of Islam

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, You're welcome akhi No, none of the anbiya's (prophets) peace be upon them were reverts. This is because every child is a born as a muslim, a believer and it is their parents who influence them to go in the wrong path. The prophets always believed in Allah (swt) and his oneness. In their hearts they were always muslims so they did not need to revert to something they already believed in. It is their companians which reverted, like Omar (ra) Uthman (ra) etc. I hope you understand what i mean. Sorry i made an error, the prophet (pbuh) stated so,“The Jews were divided among themselves into seventy one or seventy two sects, and the Christians were divided among themselves into seventy one or seventy two sects. And My Ummah will be divided among itself into seventy three sects.†Abu Dawood, at-Tirmidhi, al-Hakim and Ahmad among several others, reported this Hadith. Yes many brother, i'll just show you a quick example or else we'll both be here a long time. 1. Jarudiah: Followers of Abu'l-Jarud. They believe Holy Prophet (pbuh) designated Al-Isa as the Imam by his characteristics but not by name. 2. Sulamania: Followers of Sulaiman ibn-Jarir al-Zaidi. They believed Imamat was a matter of Jaririya conference and could be confirmed by two best Muslims. 3. Butriyah: They did not dispute the Khilafat of Uthman (ra), neither they attack him nor Hurariyah praise him. 4. Yaqubiyya: They accepted the Khilafat of Abu Bakr (ra) and Umar (ra), but did not reject those who rejected these Khulifaa. They also believed that Muslim commiters of Major sins will be in hell forever. 5. Hanafiyah: Followers of the Imammate of Muhammad ibn-al-Hanifah. They believe that Allah might have had a beginning. 6. Karibiyah: They believed that Imam Muhammad ibn-al-Hanifah is not dead and is the Imam Ghaib (in disappearance) and the expected Mahdi. 7. Kamiliyah: Followers of Abu-Kamil. They believed companions to be heretic because they forsook their allegiance to Ali (ra) and condemn Ali (ra) for ceasing to fight them. They believed in the returning of the dead before the Day of Resurrection and that Satan is right in preferring fire to clay. 8. Muhammadiyyah: Followers of Muhammad ibn-Abdullah ibn-al-Hassan. They do not believe/Mughairiyah that Imam Muhammad ibn-Abdullah died and that he is the Imam Ghaib and awaited Mahdi. continued

  10. Urgent - Looking For A Qur'aan Teacher In Braille

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, :D It saddens me that i can not do anything for those less fortunate,allahu akbar for my sight and i praise the lord of the heavens and the earth and that which is in between for what i have. There are plenty of mu'allim around where i live and i'll see if any of them can do anything. True that we need to create facilities for anyone who is not able to see. Inshallah if i find anything brother, i'll let you know :D
  11. Chit Chat Between Brothers And Sisters

    Asalamu alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatu, Oh i understood you perfectly fine sister and there is no need for me to register what you said, already have. It seems that your the one who needs to re-read my post, because really no one is 'jumping the gun' here.
  12. Logical Steps Of Success.

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, You've condensed the phrame mind into a short paragraph :D However, is the one who siezes opportunity successful? Is working, the exercise of the mind or the body or perhaps both? is it possible for one to be determined and only use one aspect of their mindset? can it not be an impulsive act rather than inspiration? Is success driven by determination then? Most likely, however, one who goes with fate might end up just as successful but not grasp every opportunity.
  13. You Clearly Lack Logic

  14. Chit Chat Between Brothers And Sisters

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, True brother, that is way i choose to close all my thread to aviod any irrelevant comment, though i did make one topic for riddles, inshallah that will just make people just answer and ask riddles without anything else. I guess we are all humans and sometimes we forget to keep serious, so that is permissible (Allahu'"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_www.gawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/glossary/glossary_a001.html#alim"]Alim[/url]) but constant idle chit chat is irrelevant. Jizakallah khair for the reminder brother :D Sister Afg, the word 'haram' should not be used to suit our ideologies and we shouldn't throw it about as though it was like saying 'hi' So please sister be aware of what you say. Haram is something which is unlawful, so is it unlawful; to remind people of Allah (swt)? To show remorse for the innocent? To praise the lord? verily no, the context of other people's blogging could be classed as haram due to causing fitnah. So one needs to speak of invidual's blogging rather than generalize. I hope you understand and Allah (swt) is all-knowing. Ehdeena siratul mustakeen :D
  15. Muadh Ibn Jabal

    Asalamu alaykum warahmatullah wabarakatu, This deserves a read Muadh ibn Jabal was a young man growing up in Yathrib as the light of guidance and truth began to spread over the Arabian peninsula. He was a handsome and imposing character with black eyes and curly hair and immediately impressed whoever he met. He was already distinguished for the sharpness of his intelligence among young men of his own age. The young Muadh became a Muslim at the hands of Musab ibn Umayr, the daiy (missionary) whom the Prophet had sent to Yathrib before the hijrah. Muadh was among the seventy-two Yathribites who journeyed to Makkah, one year before the hijrah, and met the Prophet at his house and later again in the valley of Mina, outside Makkah, at Aqabah. Here the famous second Aqabah Pledge was made at which the new Muslims of Yathrib, including some women, vowed to support and defend the Prophet at any cost. Muadh was among those who enthusiastically clasped the hands of the blessed Prophet then and pledged allegiance to him. As soon as Muadh returned to Madinah from Makkah, he and a few others of his age formed a group to remove and destroy idols from the houses of the mushrikeen in Yathrib. One of the effects of this campaign was that a prominent man of the city, Amr ibn al-Jumuh, became a Muslim. When the noble Prophet reached Madinah, Muadh ibn Jabal stayed in his company as much as possible. He studied the Quran and the laws of Islam until he became one of the most well-versed of all the companions in the religion of Islam. Wherever Muadh went, people would refer to him for legal judgments on matters over which they differed. This is not strange since he was brought up in the school of the Prophet himself and learnt as much as he could from him. He was the best pupil of the best teacher. His knowledge bore the stamp of authenticity. The best certificate that he could have received came from the Prophet himself when he said: "The most knowledgeable of my ummah in matters of Halal and haram is Muadh ibn Jabal." One of the greatest of Muadhs contributions to the ummah of Muhammad was that he was one of the group of six who collected the Quran during the lifetime of the Prophet, peace be upon him. Whenever a group of companions met and Muadh was among them, they would look at him with awe and respect on account of his knowledge. The Prophet and his two Khalitahs after him placed this unique gift and power in the service of Islam. After the liberation of Makkah, the Quraysh became Muslims en masse. The Prophet immediately saw the need of the new Muslims for teachers to instruct them in the fundamentals of Islam and to make them truly understand the spirit and letter of its laws. He appointed Attab ibn Usay as his deputy in Makkah and he asked Muadh ibn Jabal to stay with him and teach people the Quran and instruct them in the religion. continued...

  18. It's Really Getting Me Down...

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, Sister Verity I know exactly what you mean, I have been in the same situation for so long, even till this present time and it brings down your moral and leaves it in shattered pieces. For about 4 months I spent arguing with these 3 atheists. I was in total distress, so I toke a break from it. Well at least the one thing I achieved was that they no longer call themselves ‘atheists’ but ‘agnostics’ so I guess that is a small baby step. You can debate with an intellect and win but you can never win debating with the arrogant and ignorant. Seriously sister, they will never believe in the laws of the creator until they submit to him. So just make dua and focus on yourself because there is nothing you can do, you’ve done your duty. They’ll only drive you up the wall and cause burden on your heart. Believe me sister, just don’t talk to them for a month, you’ll see the difference.
  19. Muadh Ibn Jabal

    "O Amir al-Mumineen! The people of Syria are many. They fill the towns. They need people to teach them the Quran and instruct them in the religion." Umar thereupon summoned five persons who had collected the Quran in the lifetime of the Prophet, peace be upon him. They were Muadh ibn Jabal, Ubadah ibn asSamit, Abu Ayyub al-Ansari, Ubayy ibn Kab and Abu adDardaa. He said to them: "Your brothers in Syria have asked me to help them by sending those who can teach them the Quran and instruct them in the religion. Please appoint three among you for this task and may God bless you. I can select three of you myself if you do not want to put the matter to the vote." "Why should we vote?" they asked. "Abu Ayyub is quite old and Ubayy is a sick man. That leaves three of us." "All three of you go to Homs first of all. If you are satisfied with the condition of the people there, one of you should stay there, another should go to Damascus and the other to Palestine." So it was that Ubadah ibn as-Samit was left at Homs, Abu ad-Dardaa went to Damascus and Muadh went to Palestine. There Muadh fell ill with an infectious disease. As he was near to death, he turned in the direction of the Kabah and repeated this refrain: "Welcome Death, Welcome. A visitor has come after a long absence . . ." And looking up to heaven, he said: "O Lord, You know that I did not desire the world and to prolong my stay in it . . . O Lord, accept my soul with goodness as you would accept a believing soul..." He then passed away, far from his family and his clan, a daiy in the service of God and a muhajir in His path.

  20. Muadh Ibn Jabal

    Sometime after the Prophet had returned to Madinah, messengers of the kings of Yemen came to him announcing that they and the people of Yemen had become Muslims. They requested that some teachers should be with them to teach Islam to the people. For this task the Prophet commissioned a group of competent duat (missionaries) and made Muadh ibn Jabal their amir. He then put the following question to Muadh: "According to what will you judge?" "According to the Book of God," replied Muadh. "And if you find nothing therein?" "According to the Sunnah of the Prophet of God." "And if you find nothing therein?" "Then I will exert myself (exercise ijtihad) to form my own judgment." The Prophet was pleased with this reply and said: "Praise be to God Who has guided the messenger of the Prophet to that which pleases the Prophet." The Prophet personally bade farewell to this mission of guidance and light and walked for some distance alongside Muadh as he rode out of the city. Finally he said to him: "O Muadh, perhaps you shall not meet me again after this year. Perhaps when you return you shall see only my Masjid and my grave." Muadh wept. Those with him wept too. A feeling of sadness and desolation overtook him as he parted from his beloved Prophet, peace and blessings of God be on him. The Prophet's premonition was correct. The eyes of Muadh never beheld the Prophet after that moment. The Prophet died before Muadh returned from the Yemen. There is no doubt that Muadh wept when he returned to Madinah and found there was no longer the blessed company of the Prophet. During the caliphate of Umar, Muadh was sent to the Banu Kilab to apportion their stipends and to distribute the sadaqah of their richer folk among the poor. When he had done his duty, he returned to his wife with his saddle blanket around his neck, empty handed, and she asked him: "Where are the gifts which commissioners return with for their families?" "I had an alert Supervisor who was checking over me," he replied. "You were a trusted person with the messenger of God and with Abu Bakr. Then Umar came and he sent a supervisor with you to check on you!' she exclaimed. She went on to talk about this to the women of Umar's household and complained to them about it. The complaint eventually reached Umar, so he summoned Muadh and said: "Did I send a supervisor with you to check on you?" "No, Amir al-Mumineen," he said, "But that was the only reason I could find to give her." Umar laughed and then gave him a gift, saying, "I hope this pleases you." Also during the caliphate of Umar, the governor of Syria, Yazid ibn Abi Sufyan sent a message saying: continued...

  24. Overcoming The Western Mindset And Fear Of Islam

    Western mindset is based solely on humans capabilty of comprehending things and being able to distinguish what is right and wrong depending on their emotions, flawed mentality and physical attitude. Whereas Islamic teaching and laws is based on the ways of the creator...who knows us better than the one who created us? No one...humans are truly ungrateful an in time perhaps many will realise that their ways are incoreect....Allahu'alim. Middle east is an issue which most are passionate about... Most of them do i think, the same patterns, same lies and fabrication and after going about it by voicing in an Islamic adab (manner) the opponents will accuse you of being 'bad muslim' because you're not as violent as they presumed. What is insepparable is Islam and the passion you will build for your suffering brothers and sisters. They don't only have to be in ME, they can be in Africa, chechnya etc. In time you'll feel remorse for them, simply becaue they are your brothers and sisters. You won't need to care about politics as such but just the need for human rights will trigger these feelings. I hope i made sense... ma'salamah
  25. Overcoming The Western Mindset And Fear Of Islam

    Wa Alaykum salam warahmatullah wabarakatu, Eveywhere you go there will always be ignorant and prejudice views and that is what is a threat to society and not Islam. Islam is merely a way of life ordained by the creator who knows us better than urselves. So those who fear something without a form such as the religion are insecure and use Islam to escape from the harsh reality, a scapegoat perhaps even. Allahu'alim (God knows best). I can assure you Islam in Arabia is the same Islam as the ones being practised by our brothers and sisters in Islam. Of course you get the sect, which Allah (swt) has warned us about. Apart from that, Islam is that simple, it is just man-kind who make it dificult and try to fit in with society by altering what is haq (truth) and prefering man-made ideologies rather than the creators. When you see people who show this attitude ask them for prove in the teaching that state such barbaric acts which they ascribe muslims to. You'll find it is fabrication or they'll give you ayats which prove their hypothesis but use it in a completely wrong context because they don't know when, why it was sent. Just realise that you are doing this for yourself...no one else, each being defends their own soul in the day of judgement. Yes :D continued......
