This is probably one of the most hilarious and ironic things I’ve ever seen. FOX news “fair and balanced” addresses racism in America.#OneHumanity – Omar Suleiman
When we know the status of something, it is easier to honor it. Unfortunately, Muslims today do not honor the mosques as they should be honored. We know that the masjid is the House of Allah, but we fail to internalize the nobility this title holds. When any object or person is connected to the Grand Name of Allah, it shows prestigious rank. For example, Allah calls some of His exclusive slaves, “ebaadur-Rahman”, the slaves of the Most Merciful. By connecting them with His Name; Allah is honoring them. Similarly, the masajid are known as “Buyutullah”, the Houses of Allah. Of all the places on this earth, the Prophet informed us that the mosques are the most beloved placed to Allah . Think about it: Our Lord loves the masajid! Even the name holds great honor; “masjid” literally means “place of prostration (sujud)”. They are the greatest places to worship Allah and to remember Him. Allah says, “And the mosques are for Allah (Alone).” (72:18)

“The Blessed Tree” is located in Jordan. It is fondly known as the last remaining Sahaba. It is a tree near Safawi where the young Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) met with Bahira the monk while travelling with his uncle, Abu Talib, to Syria. This was to prove a critical historical event. Bahira would be the first holy man to identify Muhammad (SAW) as a prophet.
