 There is much confusion and dispute among Muslims and non-Muslims about the status of the niqab (face veil). The intent of this webinar is to dispel myths regarding the face veil. Is it oppression?

Criticisms against Niqab

How does one’s life change when they start wearing Niqab

What Lessons I Learnt from the Prophets of Islam

 Hardships are tests from Allah to make us stronger and to prove our sincerity and commitment to Him. Who better to learn this from, than the lives of the prophets, peace be upon them all!

Read Qur’an to Remember Allah

 How many of us put aside some time from our busy lives to listen, recite and ponder over the Quran? When was the last time you picked up a Quran and recited from it longer than thirty minutes?

Poem: Death

 Death does not scare me. What makes me tremble with fear, and fills me with pain and anxiety – It’s what waits for me in the next life of eternity. 

The Right to Believe

 It is a challenge every single day, not to break down the looks and comments of the people. But I won’t give up, I was not built to break.

To A ‘So-Called’ Muslim ‘Jihaadist’!

13 Apr

 

To A ‘So-Called’ Muslim ‘Jihaadist’!

            I saw a blog named ‘Jih@d’, the very first post i saw there was titled Rap song ‘Make Jihad with me’.
It turned my eyes reddd & boiled my blood.

First lemme post what kinda lyrics were they,

“Send me a cruise like Maa’lam Adam al Ansari
And send me a couple of tons like Zarqawi
And send me a drone like Abu Laith al Libi
And Special Forces like Saleh Ali Nabhani

Send me all four and send me much much more
I pray for that on my way to heavens door
Send me four and send me more, that what I implore
An amazing martyrdom I strive for and adore

There’s nothing as sweet as the taste of a tank shell
But it could be compared to being where the mortar fell
But all that could be seen as tasteless
Compared to smart bombs falling when they don’t miss

It was a beautiful day, when that predator paradise missile sent me on my way
A one way ticket with no stops or delays, no problems in the grave nor fear on that day
Or better yet send me a cruise, and send me on a cruise
Family rejoices at the news and follows me in what I do

I profess and strive against those who oppress and transgress
I obsess not depress for martyrdom success
Make Jihad With Me

Allahu Akbar Give Some More Bounty
Attack America Now!
Martyrdom or Victory
We take it Nairobi to Addis – Paradise Inside
Khilafah is here!

We are wiping Israel clear off the globe!”

You finally made it here after the long wait
You enter the training camp and study the din
You officially join the Mujahidin
You attack the kuffar where they oppress and stand
And the allies too to free the Muslim land
And implement Sharia – that´s our goal
To spread Allah´s word to every home
With you or without you Islam will succeed
Take part in the reward – Make Jihad with me!”

U can understand why I turned red after seeing that ‘A Muslim’ wrote this!!

            If you are this kind of ‘Jihadist’…I am asking you

  • ARE YOU A MUSLIM?

  • IS THIS JIHAAD?

  • IS THIS THE JIHAAD WHICH OUR QUR’AAN PRESCRIBES?

  • IS THIS THE JIHAAD WHICH OUR BELOVED PROPHET DID?

  • IS THIS JIHAAD?

You drop bombs and kill innocent people and say THIS IS JIHAAD?
You take the Qur’aanic verses out of context and say THIS IS JIHAAD?

         Why don’t you take the Qur’aanic verse which says,

  
“Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely.” [AlQur’aan Soorah AlMaa’idah 5:32]

Are you sure your bombs are killing only oppressing people??

Are you sure u kill no innocent ones??

     YOU LIER!! You kill people who don’t even heard the word ‘Islaam’.  You kill people who don’t even met a single Muslim.
     Their first introduction to Muslims is, they are terrorists..

INDEED WHAT A BAD INTRODUCTION!
        ALL THIS IS BECAUSE OF YOU!! YESSS YOU..WHO UNDERSTOOD JIHAAD IN A WRONG WAY..
        YOU WHO REPELLED PEOPLE FROM ISLAAM!

IS THIS HOW OUR PROPHET MADE JIHAAD?
        Are you sure you suffered more the THE MERCY OF MANKIND and more than HIS BELOVED COMPANIONS?

       They forgave people, they forgaveee the sinners.. THEN WHY DON’T YOU?

They forgave Hind and an Abyssinian slave Washi Ibn al-Harb who killed Hamza (radhi allaahu anhu).

He was ASADULLAAH..THE LION OF ALLAAH.. THE UNCLE OF THE PROPHET (SAL ALLAAHU ‘ALAIHI WA SALLAM).

Washi killed Hamza and Hind took out his liver and bit it!

         But our Prophet forgave them when they embraced Islam!! ISLAAM FORGAVE THEM!! Islam erased ALL THEIR PAST SINSS!!

What made Hind and Washi to accept Islaam? Was that Jihaad?
       Nooo.. it was PEACE which made them accept Islam, it was the true divinity which made them accept it!

What was the manner of Prophet (sal allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) when fighting?

Hadith 1.584 Narrated by Humaid (Radhiallah hu Taala anhu)

Anas bin Malik said, “Whenever the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) went out with us to fight (in Allah’s cause) against any nation, he never allowed us to attack till morning and he would wait and see: if he heard Adhan he would postpone the attack.

Subhaanallaah.. adhan will avert them from fighting..Why? Because it indicates there are Muslims living in that area..!!!

      Look how Islaam protects the life of a human being who worships his Creator ALONE!!

    Now you! Are you sure ur public bombs don’t kill any Muslims???

What abt 9/11 attack?? What abt Mumbai attack in India?? Are you sure no Muslim died there bcoz of YOU??

     You killed Muslims and you say you are a Jihadist and YOU ENTER PARADISE???

SHAME ON YOU!!!

   Even in war our Prophet will not attack without informing..both armies will be prepared.. only if the opposite side betrayed any treaty he (sal allaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) will publicly declare war and they are under danger of ‘any time attack’.

    But now! You go around markets and public places and kill people who came there to get something for their life!

    You kill people who are simply innocent and who never ever raised their finger against you!

       AND YOU SAY ISLAM TAUGHT YOU THIS?? YOU LOSER!

Even in fighting there are certain etiquettes.. Islam teaches you manners in every aspect of life,

• Do not betray any agreements you have entered into.
• Do not plunder.
• Do not commit injustices or use torture.
• Do not touch the children, the womenfolk, the elderly, or other non-combatants of the enemy.
• Do not destroy fruit-trees and tilled lands.
• Do not kill livestock.
• Treat with respect the religious persons who live in hermitages or convents and spare their edifices.

(Ibn al-Athir, al-Kami fi al-Tarikh, Vol.3, p.227)

Try to follow these principles..if not THROUGH YOUR SWORD AWAY!

  What did our Prophet say when he got back his home town Makkah?

        Did he say, “You people..you drove me out of this city..you tortured me..you insulted me..you threw stones over me.. you made me starve without food..I’m gonna kill you all??”

        Did he say that? Did he ever say that?? What did he say??

“He who enters the Sacred Mosque will be SAFE, he who enters the house of Abu Sufyan will be SAFE, and he who shuts his doors upon himself will be SAFE.”

  Subhaanallah..NO DOUBT HE (SAL ALLAAHU ‘ALAIHI WA SALLAM) WAS THE MERCY OF MANKIND!!!!

The Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) wanted to avoid bloodshed at all costs but you??? THINK IT OF YOURSELF!!

And did you know that FIGHTING AGAINST PEOPLE IS THE LOWEST FORM OF JIHAAD??

           Watch this video..

      Subhaanallaah..subhaanallaah..this video tells WHO IS THE TRUE WARRIOR!!

        It’s like Umar Mukhtar… the colonizers were all raping/killing and the Muslim army captures two of them as prisoners and one of the Muslim soldiers wants to just kill them. He raises his gun and Umar Mukhtar puts his hands over the rifle and pushes it down. “We do not kill prisoners” (an Islamic principle), he says. Well “*They* do it to *us*!” is the answer. Umar Mukhtar says,

“They” are not our *teachers*!

Yes!! Islam will succeed without you and me!

But this is not the kinda Jihaad to join with you!

“And cooperate in righteousness and piety, but do not cooperate in sin and aggression. And fear Allah; indeed, Allah is severe in penalty.” [AlQur’aan Soorah AlMaa’idah 5:2]

And when talking abt the children of Israael, Allah says,

“And you will still observe deceit among them, except a few of them. But pardon them and overlook [their misdeeds]. Indeed, Allah loves the doers of good.” [AlQur’aan Soorah AlMaaidah 5:13]

Adam’s son said to his brother,

“If you should raise your hand against me to kill me – I shall not raise my hand against you to kill you. Indeed, I fear Allah, Lord of the worlds.” [AlQur’aan Soorah AlMaaidah 5:28]

FEAR ALLAAH!! FEAR ALLAAH!!!
