  • More than 120 Islamic scholars from around the world wrote an open letter to the leader of ISIS Al-Baghdadi, denouncing ISIS and its fundamentals. Everyone should at least go through these points to understand how ISIS’s ideology is far away from the teachings of the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Full letter link is in the comments section. 

    Quick summary of the 17 page letter:

    "1. It is forbidden in Islam to issue fatwas without all the necessary learning requirements. Even then fatwas must follow Islamic legal theory as defined in the Classical texts. It is also forbidden to cite a portion of a verse from the Qur’an—or part of a verse—to derive a ruling without looking at everything that the Qur’an and Hadith teach related to that matter. In other words, there are strict subjective and objective prerequisites for fatwas, and one cannot ‘cherry-pick’ Qur’anic verses for legal arguments without considering the entire Qur’an and Hadith.

    2. It is forbidden in Islam to issue legal rulings about anything without mastery of the Arabic language.

    3. It is forbidden in Islam to oversimplify Shari’ah matters and ignore established Islamic sciences.

    4. It is permissible in Islam [for scholars] to differ on any matter, except those fundamentals of religion that all Muslims must know.

    5. It is forbidden in Islam to ignore the reality of contemporary times when deriving legal rulings.

    6. It is forbidden in Islam to kill the innocent.

    7. It is forbidden in Islam to kill emissaries, ambassadors, and diplomats; hence it is forbidden to kill journalists and aid workers.

    8. Jihad in Islam is defensive war. It is not permissible without the right cause, the right purpose and without the right rules of conduct.

    9. It is forbidden in Islam to declare people non-Muslim unless he (or she) openly declares disbelief.

    10. It is forbidden in Islam to harm or mistreat—in any way—Christians or any ‘People of the Scripture’.

    11. It is obligatory to consider Yazidis as People of the Scripture.

    12. The re-introduction of slavery is forbidden in Islam. It was abolished by universal consensus.

    13. It is forbidden in Islam to force people to convert.

    14. It is forbidden in Islam to deny women their rights.

    15. It is forbidden in Islam to deny children their rights.

    16. It is forbidden in Islam to enact legal punishments (hudud) without following the correct 
    procedures that ensure justice and mercy.

    17. It is forbidden in Islam to torture people.

    18. It is forbidden in Islam to disfigure the dead.

    19. It is forbidden in Islam to attribute evil acts to God.

    20. It is forbidden in Islam to destroy the graves and shrines of Prophets and Companions.

    21. Armed insurrection is forbidden in Islam for any reason other than clear disbelief by the ruler and not allowing people to pray.

    22. It is forbidden in Islam to declare a caliphate without consensus from all Muslims.

    23. Loyalty to one’s nation is permissible in Islam.

    24. After the death of the Prophet, Islam does not require anyone to emigrate anywhere.”

    Thank you.

    Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un 
    إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ‎

    Can we please take a moment to make du’a for Hamid Aminzada, a Toronto teen who was stabbed to death while trying to break up a fight?
    Just in case you don’t click the photo (there’s a link that takes you to the Toronto Star website), this excerpt from Metro News really got to me.

    "According to a 15-year-old former classmate, a friend had asked Amizada to pray for him before a difficult test. ‘You pray not from your mouth, but from your heart,' Aminzada apparently told his peer. He was killed only minutes later.”

    May Allah grant him jannah and guide his family through these pressing times. Ameen.

    Allah (swt) is watching over us, all the time, out of His care for us. And this should have a profound effect on the way we live.

    One of things that should warm our hearts when we know Allah is ar-Raqeeb (the all-Observant) is that we are never, ever alone. When we are up late at night working on an essay, or awake in the early hours of the morning getting ready for work, Allah is with us.

  • so ii was scrolling down on my calendar & then ii got randomly to year 2325 .. ii founded that funny & ii was wondering how old will ii be .. so ii calculated my age & it gave 332 .. 332 years old .. then it wasn’t funny anymore .. because ii realized that life really isn’t forever .. we get so distracted by everything around us that we feel like we’ll be on earth eternally .. when ii saw 332, the first thing that came through my mind was ‘ii won’t be in earth anymore’ & then the only thing ii was feeling in my heart was to pray, to pray for a place, for a beautiful place, in the hereafter, with my loved ones, & all those people who suffered in life, to pray that one day, in 2325, someone will read this, & realize that at their year, ii was supposed to be 332 years old .. but life isn’t forever.
