“For Almighty Allah, the Past, Present and Future are the Same!” We, human beings, have been given Prophets and Messengers and clear guidance. There is no need for the killing, hatred, racism, exploitation, Ebola, or any other evil.We need to wake up as a human race before it is too late. Imagine what the animals think about us (if they could) when they see us destroying the very earth that was given to us as a blessing!!! This is an Islamic Center; not in Cairo, Fez, Kano, Lahore, Jakarta or Dakar but in Washington D.C.!!! SubhaanAllah, the light of Allah will eventually shine over all things!!!
ALLAHU AKBAR (God is Greater)! Brother Haroon Qureshi said; “I was at Hyde park speakers corner today and there was an offensive Christian missionary who was attacking Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). A little boy aged 10 took my chair and started challenging the man while the large crowd gathered around and started cheering on the little boy (Even non Muslims were cheering him on)! Some time later his dad came and was shocked and impressed at what his son was doing! MASHAALLAH!. May Allah give us all confident children who will stand up for the Deen inshallah.
“You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah (God “. Quran 3:110

Five steps to Finding Love in Ramadan
These five steps are all statements made by the messenger of Allah . Equally, they are typified in conduct by all those who were sent by Allah to lead humanity from darkness into light.
Prophet Yusuf life story, in particular, is highlighted by imam Ibnul Jawzi in Bustan al-Wa’idhin wa Riyad as-Sami’in, as typifying the spirit of the month of Ramadan. Just like Prophet Yusuf was the most beloved of the twelve sons to Ya’qub , Ramadan is likewise the most beloved month to Allah from the twelve months.

How can we build Muslim unity in one day? Of course, none of us can perform such an awesome task in 24 hours, but we can take small, meaningful steps to work towards that goal, especially on Eid day.
Eid is a day of joy and happiness. It’s a time when Muslims of all colors, schools of thought and other variations come together to worship Allah collectively. We all commemorate the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim, Hajira and Ismail (peace be upon them). It’s a great opportunity to take advantage of everyone’s high spirits to do some unity building.
Here are some suggestions of small things we can do to build Muslim unity this Eid.

Hate is Blind
Hate is just as blind as love, if not more. Many of us, at one point or another, have disliked another human being to a sinful degree. Our heart, normally soft and forbearing, constricts in rancor against them. Naturally, there are usually justifications for our hatefulness, and in reality the reasons probably warrant some level of aversion.
Often I am asked to sit in mediation between estranged couples, emotionally charged fathers and sons, feuding relatives, distrustful neighbors or disputing former business partners. On one such occasion a seemingly outwardly devout gentleman leaned over and said, “Shaykh, if I die before you, please lead my janāzah and make sincere du’ā’ for me. Also I give this as a wasiyya, if Omar (the man he is in dispute with) comes to pray at my funeral, I want you to kick him out of the masjid and tell him that I do not need his prayers.”
The seed of hate begins to sprout in the depth of the heart and, without intervention, the seed takes root and rises out of the heart into a thicket of anger, mistrust, gossip, fear, separation and condescension.
