Did you know? “• In the 9th Century AD, The Caliph Mamun of the Abbasid Dynasty in Baghdad, needed a means of solving problems of inheritance, land divisions, finances, Zakat, construction, agriculture, navigation and booty distribution. So the great Muslim Scholar Muhammad ibn Musa, Al-Khawarizmi, wrote a book called “Kitab al-Mukhtasar fi Hisab Al-Jabr (Algebra) wa al-Muqabalah” (The Abbreviated Book on Calculation by Completion and Balancing”. This was the basis of Modern Algebra and is still studied today. Muslims need to return to positive, broad minded thinking that connects us with the Creator and enables us to handle the challenges around us. Look at this design that was part of a Mosque in Cairo, Egypt. SubhaanAllah, Focus your eyes on it and see the different levels of design. This is how life is!!! Allahu Akbar (Allah Is the Greatest).

Over 52% of mammals and birds are extinct! Where is the Khalifah?

The real meaning of Khalifah is the Vicegerent or representaive of Allah on earth not a political leader. Adam (pbuh), the first human was given this responsibility by Almighty Allah and we, as a human race, are now failing miserably. Before we bombed, kill, behead, occupy, exploit and starve other people in the name of democracy, peace or law and order, we need to straighten up and deal with the earth. We can find a cure for Ebola, bring back sanity and peace if we would just stop being so bigoted and narrow minded. look at this tragedy we are facing in the north, just like our fellow human beings around the world, animals are being made refugees!!!
Look at 35, 000 walruses coming ashore and trapped at Point Lay, Alaska, right now! There is not enough sea ice to sustain them so they’re stuck on the shore.” SubhaanAllah, do we think that we are not next?

As we pass through the blessed days of Dhul Hijjah, Muslims need to hold on to the life giving practices of Islam. Our Prayers, Fasting, Sadaqah (charity) and Hajj are blessings directly from Almighty Allah to each one of us! We have to believe that no matter what evil is done to us, no matter what insult is hurled at us, no matter what slander is made against the name of Islam, Allah has power over all things and has made for each manifestation in creation, a limit! We must believe that our children and our faith will survive, Insha Allah!!! They will find a way out (Makhraj) of the darkness into light!!!”

As the world focuses on the confusion of the Middle East, Islam still spreads in the West!

Native American and Canadian people are interested in Islam.” Leave the concrete cities, Oh Muslims, and do Dawah (outreach) in the Teepees (Aboriginal tents) and the Igloos and houses of the North!”
“Here is a shot taken today from Ojibwe country, Curve Lake Ontario. May Almighty Allah enable the Aboriginal people of the Americas, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific region, South East Asia, and the Arctic region to come into Islam in crowds. Surely Allah has power over all things!!!”

As the world media continues to demonize the world of Islam, Muslims are suffering all around the planet! The Ebola virus which could be contained if the world focussed its wealth, doctors and attention on the stricken area, is striking the heart of one of the historic Muslim-dominated areas of West Africa (The Futa Jallon) (Guinea, Sierra Leone, etc.). The world needs to take this outbreak serious and Muslims should be at the forefront! Its not a useless, foresaken land. Here is the Grand Masjid of Conakry, Guinea, said one of the largest in the world. Oh Allah, we beseech You to cure the victims of Ebola, protect the innocent and give the Muslims who have died in this plague the highest part of Paradise!!!”

If Masjids could talk, they would probably cry out to Muslims

“Don’t leave me again after Ramadan; Don’t be Abdu Ramadan (The Slave of Ramadan), be Abdullah (The Slave of Allah) and come all year round!!! Shawaal is not the end but the door to the rest of the year. Don’t stop making Dua, giving Sadaqah, fasting and calling to the good and forbidding evil. Surely Allah is Aware of all that you do!!!”
