Time for a New Image of Islam — Muslims Against Terror

Salam Alaikum,

Dear Muslim brothers and sisters around the world. We write you passionately from the MuslimsAgainstTerror.com brotherhood inviting you to a most important matter in our duty as the representatives of the noble Deen al Islam, conveyed to us by the most dignified prophet, Mohammad, peace and blessings be upon him.

It is time for the invigoration of a new image for Islam. It is time to stop being dis-concerned about the state of the image of our deen and the situation of our brothers, sisters, family and friends, but to carry out our duty zealously to preserve the dignity and purity of Islam.

We can sit and feel we have no part to actively play in the collective responsibility to rectify the values of Islam in our family and the society at large, continually blaming others or expecting others to carry out this task, or we can fulfill our obligations as Muslims to restore the image of Islam, the religion of peace and the pure, righteous path.

The recent bombing in Boston and the wars in Syria and other Muslim nations, where Muslims fight Muslims, should make us realize that the sermon in mosques every Friday, the message we give our friends family and children must highlight the importance of righteous character and defined attitude of Muslims and the larger Islam.

The parents of the bombers are fighting off the catastrophe by stating that their children were framed. Allahu Alim. But is it the behavior of a righteous Muslim if framed or entrapped to run from the law?

Yaa ay-yuhal-ladhiyna aamanuu aTiy’Ul-laaha wa aTiy’Ur rasuula wa ulil amri minkum

“Believers! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you…” (Qur’an 4:59)

Why should some of our children be involved in any way in matters like this, when we as Muslims should be the farthest away from such matters as is dictated by our noble deen? This means we are spiritually weak and unprotected and the devil has gained access to us.

Islam has provided us weapons to use against mischief. Stern warnings and prayers. Verily the advice for Muslims to recite Al Qursy and the four Quls before bed is there to protect us from the whisperings of Asshaytan(The devil), from among the Jinns and mankind. If we remind our loved ones to recite this, they will not be involved in matters that are a stain to our faith.

Chapter 114 – Surah An-Nas ( Mankind )

Say : I seek refuge with (Allah ) the lord of mankind, The king of mankind, The Ilah (God) of mankind, From the evil of the whisperer (devil who whispers evil in the hearts of men), who withdraws ( from his whispering in one’s heart after one remembers Allah ), Who whispers in the breasts of mankind , Of jinns and men.”

Chapter 113 – Surah Al-Falaq ( Dawn )

Say : I seek refuge with ( Allah ) the Lord of the daybreak, From the evil of what He has created; And from the evil of the darkening ( night ) as it comes with its darkness; ( or the moon as it sets or goes away ). And from the evil of the witchcrafts when they blow in the knots, And from the evil of the envier when he envies.

Dear brothers and sisters in Islam. Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. The light of Islam can never be extinguished. We have a collective responsibility as those fortunate by Allah(s) Will to be on the right path, to promote what is right and condemn what is wrong. We must take this serious within our communities, that Islam can again shine bright with the light of Allah. Masha Allah(S). Truth stands clear from falsehood. Let us be loudly clear with the truth of Islam, the Deen of Peace.

The Astrolabe was highly developed in the Islamic world by 800 ; introduced to Europe from Islamic Spain (al-Andalus) in the early 12th century. It was the most popular astronomical instrument till 1650. Astrolabes are still appreciated and used in astronomy education. link: http://www.tadeebulquran.com

There is no place for Terror in Islam. Our condemnation should be regular, clear, unambiguous, loud and unreserved.

During Europe’s “dark ages,” which were the “Islamic Golden Ages,” Islam was at the forefront in global innovation, development, science and medicine. We held the torch and preserved science that re-flourished to spread around the world as it obtains today. During Europe’s persecution of Jews, Islamic nations were their safe haven, as we also were for the Christians during the era of Persecution of the Church. The prophet of Islam presented the world with the first explicit laws on women’s rights and protection, the first treaties on environmental conservation, on animal and even plant rights and protection, on inter-national respect and relations, which the UN today tries to emulate. It is time to restore who we are.

May Allah(S) have mercy on the victims of the bombings, and the victims of all Shaytan-inspired atrocities in the world today.  May He give us the strength and ability to preserve the true peaceful nature of Islam and may He in His ultimate wisdom protect and guide us. Ameen

Let us be proactive, Masha Allah.

Salam Alaikum

Brother Isa Ibrahim

Muslim Marriage – A Relationship Which Symbolizes Islam and Love

muslim marriage services Muslim Marriage   A Relationship Which Symbolizes Islam and LoveMarriage in Islam is of huge importance. It is a sacred agreement between a man and a woman to be together in all times. The wed lock (Nikkah) allows the man and the woman to be together and grants this relationship a social, cultural, legal as well as religious/ holy permission to exist.

A typical Islamic marriage, one in which Islamic rules are being observed, is a symbol of love and unity. Islam prohibits dowry being obtained from the parents of the bride. The man is responsible for all the expenses. Islamic wedding parties are supposed to be attended by close family members and friends of the boy and the girl. This ceremony is supposed to be a simple one instead of being very pompous or elaborate.

Parents of the girl are to give only the essentials to their daughter. Hence it puts no economic or social pressure on them. This is different to Western traditions, where the bride’s parents are supposed to provide her with a dowry, as well as pay for the wedding.

Islam gives equal rights to man and woman. A woman has the right to file a divorce case under Islamic laws. Islam gives ultimate freedom to women by declaring that if a woman does not like her husband for some reason, she can get a divorce without further delay. A man is entitled to the same consideration.

Muslim Marriage 480x573 Muslim Marriage   A Relationship Which Symbolizes Islam and Love

Muslim man is responsible for earning for the household. He is bound by Islamic law to keep his wife happy and comfortable otherwise the woman has the right to leave him. Again this varies greatly from the Westerner, who technically has to provide for the woman, but all too often does not. The Islamic system also propagates a separate family set-up in which husband and wife are allowed to have personal privacy. In the Islam world, the husband has to be just in his relationship with his woman. This is despite the fact that Islam allows the man to marry four times but he must seek the first woman’s permission for it. It is allowed only if the man is capable of being just to all of them. In the Western world, this is forbidden and punishable in a court-of-law if the law of monogamy is broken.


Giving man and woman equal rights and conferring equal duties shows that Islam wants a house to be an institute where living together is not a compulsion. Living together should arise out of love and not be a compromise. Islam believes in love and pursues this aim in every walk of life with ultimate determination.

What is Quran – Facts about Quran

  • Quran is spelled as Qur’aan, Koran and commonly as Quran.
  • Quran is the noble and Holy Book of the Islamic religion.
  • Muslims believe in Quran as the word of God (Allah).
  • Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad as the final word from God (Allah).
  • According to the teaching of the Islamic Religion (Teachings that Allah taught Muhammad through Quran and other forms of revelation) that the commandments of God (Allah) in Quran supersede all previous commandments that were revealed in previous revelations such as Torah and Bible.
  • Muslims believe in Torah and Bible as revelations from God (Allah) BUT not in the actual teachings as they were believed to be altered by people over time.
  • Muslims believe that Quran has not changed since its revelation. Allah has taken guarantee in the Quran itself that Allah will protect such from happening.
  • The teachings in the Quran dictate Muslims’ way of life.
  • Muslims recite Quran in their prayers daily.
  • Quran is recited the most in the month of Ramadan (the month of fasting).
  • Quran was revealed on Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) over a period of 23 years.
  • The verses and chapters in the Quran were revealed depending on the various incidents that occurred during the life time of Prophet Muhammad. The whole idea was to reinforce Quranic teachings in the life of Muslims and make it more practical for them to follow. For example, prior to the revelation of Quran, people used to drink alcohol. The first verses of the Quran prohibited Muslims not to pray while they are intoxicated (as they do not know what they are praying). However, later, verses were revealed that completely prohibited alcohol for Muslims. Allah mentioned in the Quran that the harms inflicted by drinking alcohol are far more than its benefits.
  • Quran is divided into many chapters with each chapter having verses.
  • Quran was revealed in the Arabic language and Muslims all over the world recite it in the same language. However, translations have surfaced to help Muslims and non-Muslims alike understand the interpretation of the Quran. Translations should be read very carefully as simple translations mostly do not convey the real meanings of what was revealed. A simple example would be the term “what’s up?” used in American vocabulary. When someone uses that sentence, he literally does not mean “what is up?”, rather it means “what is happening” or “what do you want”, etc.
