Audhu billahi min ash-shaytan ir-rajeem – I seek refuge in God from Satan which is accursed
Bismillah-ir Rahman-ir Raheem – In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

“Call unto the way of thy Lord with wisdom and fair exhortation, and reason with them in the better way. Lo! Thy Lord is Best Aware of him who strayeth from His way, and He is Best Aware of those who go aright.”
Quran 16:125

Miracle of God: The human brain

The human brain…simultaneously processes an amazing amount of information. Your brain takes in all the colors and objects you see, the temperature around you, the pressure of your feet against the floor, the sounds around you, the dryness of your mouth, even the texture of your keyboard. Your brain holds and processes all your emotions, thoughts and memories. At the same time your brain keeps track of the ongoing functions of your body like your breathing pattern, eyelid movement, hunger and movement of the muscles in your hands.

The blessed Companion of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), Abdullah ibn Salam narrates that when Allah willed to guide Zaid ibn Su`nah (the great Jewish scholar of Madinah), Zaid ibn Su`nah said:

“I recognized all of the signs of prophethood upon seeing the face of Muhammad save two signs that were not immediately evident:

That his forbearance would precede his rashness, and that his forbearance would increase upon encountering excessive rashness.”

When Ramadan ended this year, I felt my heart break. There is always a sadness with the departure of Ramadan, but usually it is mixed with the excitement of Eid.

Not this year. This year felt different.

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – Terry Holdbrooks Jr., 29, wears the beard of a bald Amish guy, the tattoos of a punk kid, and the twitchy alertness of a military policeman. Take him to a restaurant, and he’ll choose the chair with its back against the wall. Take his photo, and he’ll prefer to look away from the camera.

Part of that wariness Holdbrooks learned while guarding detainees from 2003 to 2004 at Guantanamo Bay, the U.S. holding tank for military prisoners on the southeastern point of Cuba.

A Muslim woman explains why she has chosen to wear the Hijab, not out of repression, but liberation

I probably do not fit into the preconceived notion of a “rebel”. I have no visible tattoos and minimal piercing. I do not possess a leather jacket. In fact, when most people look at me, their first thought usually is something along the lines of “oppressed female.” The brave individuals who have mustered the courage to ask me about the way I dress usually have questions like: “Do your parents make you wear that?” or “Don’t you find that really unfair?”

Muslims and Justice in America

10325312_10154503014150174_9010548871491750494_n

By: Abdullah Hakim Quick

Muslims have always been part of American societies. Many of the 75 million people who lived in the Americas before Columbus believed in One God. Muslim explorers and merchants reached the Americas long before Columbus (See my book “Deeper Roots” at www. hakimquick.com); over between 15-30% of the African slaves brought to the Americas were Muslims! Today there are Millions of Muslims in the Americas working, studying and living like anyone else. So the killing of Micheal Brown in Ferguson, Missouri should be a great concern to Muslims as well as African Americans. Justice is for all, safety and respect are for all!!!” Here is a picture taken not in Cairo or Lahore or Jakarta but on Madison Avenue in New York City. Allahu Akbar!!!

A hard-working Pakistani, who understands life

I don’t have air conditioned office to work in, I don’t get to dress up in a suit, I don’t get a secretary to serve me in my lunch break but I am still happy and in peace of my mind as I know I work hard and earn halal roti (Bread/Food) for myself and for my children and I am grateful to Allah (God) for all his blessings.

The Future Is For Islam

The day Islam gave a new concept of values and standards to mankind and showed the way to learn these values and standards, it also provided it with a new concept of human relationships. Islam came to return man to his Sustainer and to make His guidance the only source from which values and standards are to be obtained, as He is the Provider and Originator. All relationships ought to be based through Him, as we came into being through His will and shall return to Him.
