Asalamou Alaicom wr wb

 

i hope you are all in good health and Iman

 

i'm from Sydney akhi ^ ^ ^ and hamdulilah the Muslims here are doing a great job. I think forming Muslim communities helps out heaps with the unity of Muslims.

 

To achieve unity we need to gather up and stick together side by side. Allah'alam, but from my own perspective, the major cause which influences the unity of Muslims is greed; hatred; wanting to always be the top; jealously and all those negative characteristics which if we as a team decrease the practise of, we'll make a great nation bi ithnilah.

 

perhaps we need to awaken the "new generation" the "Youth" in another words, for them to become the leaders of the future, for them to resemble the great Muslim character which is currently "out of order". To achieve all this we need "WILL POWER" a very strong one.

 

i'm sure most of you are on holidays, therefore let's make use of it. Let's try our best to build our Muslim Character in order to help others build theirs.

 

we can go to live lectures, we can even listen/watch right here at our own place if we are unable to attend; we can start fasting for Allah's sake every Mondays and Thursdays even on hot days to double our reward and increase our seat in paradise; not only that, but we can recite the Quran more often, a page won't hurt after each prayer; or even do more nawafel prayers! see how many things we can achieve if we just make use of and manage our time?

 

Let's replace misleading with leading, let's keep our self busy with doing what's right, now i don't mean pray or recite Quran 24/7 no. That’s not what Allah asks us to do. Everything in life has it's own time.

If you daily specify a time for your Deen, a time for you Family and a time for your work, then your life would be balanced.

 

but after all, we should always remember to have the intention of dedicating our work and efforts to Allah alone and remember that he's watching us with every step we try to take.

 

okay, know who's with me?

Howard's racist divide & rule

 

 

by Marcus Browning

 

The Howard Government's support for a proposal to outlaw the wearing of

traditional Muslim clothing is an incitement to racial and religious

hatred. Racism has been a central plank of the Howard Government's

political platform from the time of its election in 1996, be it racist

slurs against Indigenous Australians, the demonising and dehumanising of

asylum seekers or its paternalistic arrogance toward Australia's Asia-

Pacific neighbours.

 

It was the Reverend Fred Nile, the Christian Democrat NSW MP, who fanned

the flames of hatred, calling for traditional Islamic dress to be banned by

law.

 

Nile, better known for his Christian fundamentalist homophobia, speaking in

the state Parliament said: "Is it a fact that the Islamic female terrorists

in Hamburg, Germany, and in the recent Muslim attack in Moscow, Russia,

wore the black chador body covering of Iran and Saudi Arabia?"

 

His diatribe  at one and the same instance racist, sexist and full of the

bile of religious hatred  was intended to make all Australian Muslim

women subjects of public fear and suspicion and a target for violence. It

bore its bitter fruit the next day with an assault on two women wearing the

chador in Sydney.

 

The objective of vilifying the faith of Islam itself was also clear as Nile

continued: "Is it a fact that such total body covering completely conceals

a person's identity, even whether the wearer is male of female  which is

a perfect disguise for terrorists as it conceals both weapons and

explosives ."

 

He concluded with a call to his fellow Christian fundamentalist, John

Howard: "In view of the new terrorist threat and as part of our new

Australian security precautions, will the Government consider a prohibition

on the wearing of the chador?"

 

Howard was accommodating. In a radio interview his sham ambiguity did not

veil his obvious support. "I don't have a clear response to what Fred has

put. I mean, I like Fred and I don't always agree with him, but you know

Fred speaks for a lot of people." And: "Sometimes you don't have a flat yes

or no on something like this. Different people of goodwill will have a

different view."

 

Clearly, Nile and Howard have their lines of communications open. Nile also

wants a ban of the wearing of the hijab Muslim scarf by students in state

schools in the name of "unity and tolerance".

 

The agenda of the extreme right, including the Christian right, has

emerged.

 

Specifically, it is for the imposition of dictatorial rule by the means of

rabid anti-democratic laws enforced by police, the military and spy

agencies.

 

It involves the censorship and the silencing of views that differ to those

of the Government. This includes an attack on multiculturalism, diversity

of values and beliefs, and the right to dissent, to organise and to

protest.

 

The intent is to maintain an atmosphere heavy with suspicion and fear with

such tactics as the call for public vigilance and last week's vague warning

of a terrorist attack; that someone, somewhere in Australia between now and

next year will use undefined weapons of mass destruction.

 

Stoking the fires of racial and religious hatred is an essential part of

divide-and-rule tactics.

 

But the insistent war propaganda, now coupled with the threat of terrorism

against Australia, is evidence that not everything is going to plan for

Howard and his cronies.

 

There is strong community opposition to war. There have been revelations

about the essentially conspiratorial and underhand nature of the Howard

Government, such as the recent exposure of their secret, lethal treatment

of asylum seekers, and their lax response to the victims of the Bali

bombing.

 

Pandering to the US is also putting some off-side.

 

Voices speak out

 

Among those speaking out against and condemning the vicious Howard/Nile

racist double act, were the acting Race Discrimination Commissioner,

William Jonus, who called Nile's statements "offensive and an abuse of the

institution of Parliament".

 

Maha Krayem Abdo, from the United Muslim Women's Association, said she was

stunned that such comments could come from an Australian parliament. The

Lebanese Muslim Association's Keysar Trad called Nile's statement racist.

"Muslim women have been through enough.

 

"Now we have a Member [of Parliament] attacking modesty and making

statements that will escalate tensions. It's not the thing you expect to

hear in a civilised country like Australia."

 

The Islamic Council of Victoria asked if there was going to be a ban on

brief cases as weapons can easily be hidden in them.

 

Greens Senator Bob Brown noted that Howard's refusal to condemn Fred Nile's

statement shows he is stilling running with the political line of One

Nation 's Pauline Hanson. "For months he wouldn't take on Pauline Hanson

when she started her attack on multiculturalism", said Senator Brown.

 

"Now his first up accommodating comments in relation to Fred Nile's call

for a ban on the chador shows the Prime Minister is again willing to foster

anti-Muslim sentiment by default.

 

"Fred Nile's comments are unacceptable in multicultural Australia. The

Prime Minister's flirtation with those comments is dangerous."

Please keep on topic.

As the name of this section implies: anything not related to Islam or Muslims in this country is an off-topic post.

Feel free to start a new, separate topic to discuss whatever you feel like discussing, but not in this section please. Going off-topic is a violation of IF rules.

Thank you for helping us better organize IF. :D

And i have never been to england so i cant speak from exprience sorry sis.

InshaAllah i have answered ur questions okay...

From the Melbourne Herald Sun:

 

Muslim books of hate sold

Liam Houlihan, religious affairs reporter

24jun05

 

LITERATURE filled with hatred of Christians, Jews and non-Muslims is being sold at a Masjid near a Melbourne home raided by ASIO.

 

Books sold at the store attached to the Brunswick Masjid tell Muslims they should "hate and take as enemies" non-Muslims, reject Jews and Christians, and learn to hate in order to properly love Allah.

 

The texts say Muslims should learn military tactics and suggest that if a person speaks ill of Islam it is acceptable to kill them.

 

They urge Muslims to strike back against "the barbaric onslaught from their enemies -- the Jews, Christians, atheists, secularists and others".

 

Pages are devoted to legitimising episodes of violence against Jews who insult Islam.

 

"A Jewish woman used to abuse the Prophet and disparage him. A man strangled her till she died. The Apostle of Allah declared that no recompense was payable for her blood," one book recounts.

 

A similar example is given of a man killing the mother of his two children because she "disparaged the Prophet"; he also was declared clear of any crime.

 

"When they (non-Muslims) meet you, they say, 'We believe', but when they are alone, out of frustration and rage, they bite off the tips of their fingers because of you," one says.

 

"O you who believe! Do not take the Jews (Yahood) and Christians (Nasara) for friends (Awliyaa). They are Awliyaa to each other. And the one among you that turns to them is one of them."

 

Readers are instructed by the books not to feel compassion for non-Muslims, not to trust them, and not to speak well of them.

 

One book says faithful Muslims should learn military tactics.

 

The group of books were bought from the bookstore of the Islamic Information and Support Centre of Australia, which is in the same building as the Brunswick Masjid. One, The Ideological Attack, describes "the Jews" as striving to corrupt the beliefs, morals and manners of Muslims.

 

"The Jews scheme and crave after possessing the Muslim lands, as well as the lands of others," it reads.

 

"Supported by a demonic global plan as well as unlimited financial backing, this attack aims at domination and hegemony over the Islamic world; dividing it, attacking it culturally and morally and perverting the true image of the religion.

 

"Therefore it is amongst the priorities of the Islamic call (da'wah) to break this attack and to counter it with every legitimate means of da'wah possible."

 

One text says of devotion to Allah: "As regards hatred for His sake this is an essential prerequisite for loving Him."

 

A book on "Muslims Living as Minorities" mentions Muslims fighting in Afghanistan and discusses "jihad", or holy war, as a collective and individual responsibility.

 

Another quotes classic anti-Semitic conspiracy text The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, stating Jews want to make Muslims "the of the chosen people".

<Second part of post, which I've broken up as it's 'too long' for a single post>

 

As an Australian, I find this report (reprinted above) deeply disturbing. What I find even more disturbing is that the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC) HAS FAILED TO CONDEMN THIS PEDDLING OF RACIST HATRED BY MUSLIMS WHO HAVE BEEN EXTENDED THE HAND OF CITIZENSHIP IN AUSTRALIA.

 

The AFIC condemned the taking of hostage Douglas Wood, and more recently, it condemned the London bombing (afic.au/Amn.htm). What you WILL NOT find on that page is a condemnation of the hatred peddled towards its home nation in one of its own Masjids.

 

The hatred peddled in the written materials of the type peddled by the Brunswick Masjid (basically, kill all Infidels) is directtly responsible for actions like the bombing of London.

 

So why does the AFIC, and Australian muslims by default, sit quiet about this? Do we need to wait for the Sydney harbour bridge to be blasted to smithereens before the AFIC will condemn it?

 

Fred Nile may well be a racist. But perhaps one of you can point to one, single comment where he has suggested Aussies go and kill Muslims because they are non-believers?
