In the Name of Allah, the most Compassionate and most Merciful

Salaam Allah; and His Mercy to All of You

Salaam is not only Peace, as widely circulated and understood.. Salaam is a holy name of Allah swt.. Salaam means the coherence of balanced and contented being which affects all surroundings and attachments; towards both sought blessed destinies and bright righteous path

—————————————–

There are three purposes for the intellectual creations to adhere to:
Worshiping the Creator swt,
Purifying one’s self from non-divinely attributes, and
Colonization and utilizing of Earth..

—————————————–

P.S.; All contents are defensible by authentic Islamic referrals; Quran, Hadith, Sahaba’s quotes, etc.. Hopefully, those of old schools would avoid misunderstanding the logic behind such endeavor..

Believing in the shared knowledge, and the great contributions from early Muslims in structuring the Humane Civilization; I shall invest my efforts and the time I can; to translate the Arabic scripts into English one..

This is the true barrier between Muslims and the Others..!

 زدني بفرط الحب فيك تحيرا، وأرحم حشا بلظى هواك تسعرا
وإذا سألتك أن أراك حقيقة فاسمح، ولا تجعل جوابك لن ترى

قال الإمام على بن أبى طالب رضى الله عنه
ان الله تعالى يتجلى للذاكرين عند الذكر وتلاوة القرآن ولا يرونه لأنه أعز من أن يرى وأظهر من أن يخفى , فتفردوا بالله عز وجل واستأنسوا بذكره
Imam Ali, may Allah honor his face, said
Allah swt would be observed at the Zhikr (remembrance) and at Quran reciting; yet Allah swt is Honorable to be seen, yet Obvious to be hidden.. Therefore; feel close when you do and enjoy His remembrance

Islam is Peace

Juan Cole is the Richard P. Mitchell Collegiate Professor of History at the University of Michigan and the 2016 Chair in Countries and Cultures of the South at The John W. Kluge Center. The author or editor of more than 10 books on the Middle East, at the Library of Congress he is researching a forthcoming book project titled, “The Idea of Peace in the Qur’an.”

Despite the few irregularities with standard Islamic philosophy, the framework is appreciated and praised.. “Peaceful” Islam is widely and typically lost in translation, even among contemporary Arab-Speakers, who generally can’t taste, realize or explain the true depth of a nomadic language that was based on oral, symbolic and closed-epistemic-environment..

Adding to this few Arabic-Characteristics, which make both translation an interpretation a tough task, not only by insufficient bilingual Islamic-academics, but also by the tricky linguistic nature of poetry and plural definitions..

Pls; Break the Fast…

The less you have to donate.. The bigger the reward to gain…!
However, the hairy demise between “Muslim Brotherhood” mindset, and authentic “Love-based” Islam can be easily threatened..!!
Be aware…………..

The mood at “break the fast” time during Ramadan in Dakar is so fabulous. At around 7:40, Muslims can drink and eat for the first time all day. Baye Falls, a group of disciples who follow leaders of Senegal’s Muslim brotherhoods, handout bread and Cafe Touba to taxi drivers and people passing in cars – anyone and everyone – at this time. “People are in their way home from work and they might live in a suburb far away, so it might take a while to get home and finally eat,” one Baye Fall said. The food and drink are free, made with donations they gather throughout the day. When I passed by a couple days ago they tried to hand me some Cafe Touba, and I told them no thanks as I hadn’t fasted. “It doesn’t matter if you didn’t fast!” they said.

A recent gathering of Muslim NYPD cops revealed how in the face of bigotry we can still find what makes America special.

The good of Islam shone only brighter as the last light of the longest day of the year dimmed.

The moment was coming when the assembled members of the NYPD Muslim Officers Society would break their fast for Ramadan.

This room on the fifth floor of the New York University Islamic Center could have almost been designed for the society’s annual Iftar dinner. A wall of windows to the right looked west to where that the sun was setting beyond the buildings of lower Manhattan.  An identical wall of windows at the front offered a due south view of the Freedom Tower, glinting golden in its skyward soar 20 blocks directly downtown. The sight was so gorgeous as to make you almost forget the absence where the twin towers once stood.

Buses featuring an Arabic phrase ‘Subhan Allah’ which translates as ‘Glory to Allah’ would run across the streets of London in order to raise awareness during the holy month of Ramadan.

According to Express, hundreds of buses across Britian would carry the phrase ‘Subhan Allah,’ as part of a campaign by a charity Islamic Relief. The charity organization states that the posters would help raise funds for victims of war and disasters in countries such as Syria, and would also portray Islam in a positive light.

“There is a lot of negativity around Muslims. We want to change the perception of Islam. The campaign is about breaking down barriers and challenging misconceptions,” said Islamic Relief’s UK Director, Imran Madden.

As per BT, Subhan Allah would most prominently be featured on buses in the city of London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bradford and Leicester. “We want to celebrate the fact that extreme poverty has been halved and give thanks for the opportunity that Ramadan provides to give generously in support of people in need,” said Madden.

Madden added, “In a sense this could be called a climate change campaign because we want to change the negative climate around international aid and around the Muslim community in this country.”

The advertisements will feature on 180 London buses from May 23 just ahead of Ramadan, which falls between June 6 and July 7.

Certainly, I reject this notion; as we are not eligible to change the divine code of conduction, which was thoroughly examined, debated and agreed by notable person with vision and enlightenment.. However, everyone is free in the choice to follow..!

Imam Ali MAHHF had concluded the debate between divine code and humane logic by reference to ritual of Wadhoo: If the matter is solely carried out by brains, it would be logic to clean the bottom of the foot rather than the upper-back of it..

Quietly, Liberal Muslims Are Defining Islam for Themselves

What are your thoughts on the “end of times”?

Q. What are your thoughts on the “end of times” brother Ben Abrahamson?

A. The end time, end times, or end of days is a time period described in the eschatological writings in Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. This is a known, specific period mentioned in the Torah: “Gather yourselves together and I will tell you that which will happen to you in the latter days” (Genesis 49:1).

From a Jewish point of view there are three aspects to this.

1) Prophecy is a set of analogies which can be stretched to fit many situations and circumstances. In any story there is Beginning, Middle and End. In literary terms there are five steps: Exposition or Introduction, Rising action, Climax, Falling action, Dénouement or resolution. In mystical literature it is expressed in even greater resolution, in ten steps: Conception, Wisdom, Understanding, Plan, Generalization, Specification, Balance, Resource, Talents, Action, and Completion. By finding the corresponding points between a prophecy and human events, one can find meaning and purpose in history. (Note finding meaning is the main purpose of Prophecy, not foretelling the future). Each Divinely revealed prophecy is applicable at each level: personal, community, national and at a world level. The “end times” is often concerned about how prophecy applies at a world level, but one should not loose sight that to a lesser degree it also applies during the lifetime of each individual, and may apply during multiple epochs of world history.

2) As more and more Scripture was revealed and explained by Prophets and Sages, we accumulate more and more information about the nature of this universal “end of days”. This does not mean that we know more than the Sages, or even Adam (pbuh). It simply means that what they knew instinctively and intuitively, we now know conceptually and intellectually. During the days of Moses (pbuh), it was assumed that the final redeemer would be like Moses (pbuh). During the years of the Joseph (pbuh), the Prophets and Sages told us that there would be a period of suffering and occultation of the Messiah. During the years of David (pbuh), further knowledge was added by the Prophets and Sages when they told us that the Messiah would be a King like David (pbuh), etc. Most of the expectations “end times” that we have today, for Muslims, Jews and to a lesser degree Christians, are derived from events during the pivotal period between 610CE to 680 CE, from the Persian Invasion of the Holy Land led by the son of the Exilarch, to the tragedy of Karbala. From the point of view of the Jews, Nehemiah ben Hushiel fulfilled the expectation of Messiah and Heraclius fulfilled the expectation of the anti-Messiah. From the point of view of the Byzantines, the reverse was true.

3) Lastly there is an aspect of Symmetric Diversity. It is taught within Judaism that there are “seventy nations” in the world that correspond to the seventy children of Noah (pbuh). Each of these communities have a world view which is shaped by their birth, land and language (These are the same categories the define citizenship today). In the Torah, it is described how God made different covenants with different nations according to their understanding and mission. Each nation was given exactly the commandments that it needed to fulfill the mission which God had given them. This teaching is also mentioned by Allah SWT in the Qur’an. Allah SWT could have made a single Ummah in the world, but he did not. “To each among you have we prescribed a Shariah (law) and Minhaj (custom). If Allah had so willed, He could have made you a single Ummah (people), but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues.” (Al Maeda 5,48) “And among His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the variations in your languages and your colours: verily in that are Signs for those who know.” (Surat Al-Room 30,22) Although all the Prophets (pbu them) speak the same message, it must be interpreted as fitting each community.

This teaching can be used to explain the minor differences between faiths. In Islam, for example, the main characters in the end times are the Mahdi (pbuh), Messiah (pbuh) and Dajjal. In Judaism the main characters are Elijah (pbuh), Messiah (pbuh) and Armelus. In Islam the Mahdi (pbuh) plays the lead role in world redemption and the Messiah (pbuh) has a relatively minor role. In Judaism the Messiah (pbuh) plays the lead role in world redemption and Elijah (pbuh) has a relatively minor role. One could propose that these are the same events, but viewed from a different perspective.
