That one in Short Pump (in Virginia), the West End Islamic Center is the one that I go to with my friends. But yeah, we've been seeing this all over lately.

Assalamualaikum,

Strangely, human rights activists often overlook it. Isn't building a Masjid part of human rights? Or because it is Islam so it deserves no attention? I wonder if muslims' human rights are still acknowledged seeing these many discriminations all over the world... I got impression that human rights only works if the one needs it has the same religion affiliation with the founder.

Wassalam

Raihanna, I believe that the majority of Americans right now believe that only their particular religion deserves any kinds of rights. I've been told over and over that the US is not just a Judeo-Christian nation, but it is only a Judeo-Christian nation. Meaning that they (mostly fundamentalist Christians) don't want anyone here who isn't Christian.

      Dibsi 'Afnan has been labeled as a historic site by UN.  There is no Islamic State there, no Alqaeda, just civilains and yet American airplanes pounded the area with bombs.

      The importance of Zul Hijjah in Islam can be signified by these words of the prophet of Allah, Muhammad (PBUH): “There is no virtuous deed carried out on any day of the year that can be equal to the reward of (that virtuous deed) carried out in these ten days of Zul
      Hijjah”. The Sahabah asked, “Not even Jihaad?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied, “Not even Jihaad, except for the one who endangers his life and wealth (in Jihad) and does not return with anything.”

      The fact that thousands of Muslims visit Makkah every year in Ramadam to perform Umrah is overwhelming. But, there are a
      couple of things that have to be considered, so that one can get the best out of this spiritual journey.

      Some individuals pay no heed to their families and go for Umrah in Ramadan. This is a genuine issue, on the grounds that the favored month of Ramadan is a period for individuals to show more concern for their families. The worst part is that in some cases parents neglect their children during this month. Before leaving for Umrah in Ramadan, make sure that your family and specially kids are taken care of.

      Just the thought of performing Umrah energizes the devotee, but one should bear in mind that performing Umrah is an arduous task. Many people wonder ‘What is the best age to perform Umrah’, the age at which an individual can make the most out of these spiritual journeys. Many Ulema believe that it is better to perform Hajj and Umrah in young age. Youth? Juggling between responsibilities, overburdened with studies, carefree about finances, religious affairs… so not ‘their thing’, how could young age be the best age to perform Umrah?
