The more you give the more you gain

In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Domestic abuse and violence transcends ethnicity, race and culture. Our society as a whole needs to come together and acknowledge what is happening behind close doors. There are women who remain silent and I ask that you be there voice. On February 12, 2009 Sr. Aasiya Hassan in Buffalo, New York was gruesomely killed. She fell victim to domestic violence in it’s worst form. Personally it was an eye opener and for many other’s. Our outrage and our shock will not change that in the US alone that every 9 seconds a woman reports being abused. I ask that we direct our emotions into actions. We see this happen and we ask what can we do? Well here’s our opportunity to support those courageous women who left the abusive situation they were in and sought help. Muslimat Al-Nisaa is a nonprofit organization, it’s relatively new and they need all the help they can get. What happened was nothing short of a tragedy but may this shed light on the seriousness of this matter. Open up your heart and mind, it really does feed the soul to do good. By just giving a couple dollars could go along way. Give what you can and if its not money let it be your energy. Get involved, volunteer and give women and children an opportunity for a better life. It can prevent another death and give comfort to those who were afflicted by this. Also by this tragedy being exploited by the media it puts Muslims under the wrong limelight. It adds to the misconceptions of Islam. I would like to clarify that there isn’t a religion that condones abuse in any shape or form. As a Muslim I feel it is my obligation to bring awareness and as a human I feel it is my duty to help those who are in need.

Who is he that will lend to Allah a goodly loan so that He may multiply it to him many times? And it is Allah that decreases or increases (your provisions), and unto Him you shall return. The Noble Qur’an Al-Baqarah 2:245


“The Prophet said: ‘Charity is a necessity for every Muslim. ‘ He was asked: ‘What if a person has nothing?’ The Prophet replied: ‘He should work with his own hands for his benefit and then give something out of such earnings in charity.’ The Companions asked: ‘What if he is not able to work?’ The Prophet said: ‘He should help poor and needy persons.’ The Companions further asked ‘What if he cannot do even that?’ The Prophet said ‘He should urge others to do good.’ The Companions said ‘What if he lacks that also?’ The Prophet said ‘He should check himself from doing evil. That is also charity.”

Free Palestine!!

Bismillah Ar-Rehman Ar-Raheem

As Salaamu Aleykum Wa-Rehmatullah:
I wanted to express my feelings towards what happend on December 27th 2008. Gaza has been under daily attack by the Israeli’s for years. But the recent attacks, killing not only innocent Men but Women and Children!! May Allah (SWT) curse them all. The death toll now stands at 1203 killed, and over 3000 are injured! The worst number of Palestinian casualties, and the bloodiest, since the 1967 attack in Gaza.This is a topic that every Muslim around the world should be thinking about. Its ironical how we stray from more important issues to less important ones. Free Palestine from the grips of the Isreali government!!!

When I saw this yesterday I was absolutely devastated. It is time for the Muslims to WAKE UP. While we sit back, relax eating our Big Macs. We watch and turn away as if it never happend, how disgusting. This is a issue that should be imprinted in our minds. That we will not rest until we can do something about it. Hundred’s of our Brothers and Sisters are dying. While we are ungrateful for the food we have, there are Muslims that go hungry every night. Is it not our priority to help these people?!! Have we been reduced to the same self indulged thinking of the “Westerners”? If it’s not happening to us than it doesn’t matter? We call ourselves Muslims, yet we don’t think of our Ummah! What kind of Muslims are we? Hamidullah, some of us have been blessed with wealth. As we worry about buying the latest Touch screen, High Definiation, blue Ray T.V, the people who are suffering are the farthest from our minds. SubhanAllah we become broke when it comes to giving to the Masjid. Or the charities that give food, water and shelter to those over-seas. I find myself asking why aren’t the Muslims fighting against the Isrealis as if our familys have been targeted. If this happend to their own Mother,father, Brothers and Sisters. Imagine If those bombs had hit our homes, had touched our loved one’s. Would we not stand up and fight!?? It is our obligation, and InshAllah there will be an awakening experience within our hearts.
The Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) has taught us that If we can stop the evil we encounter with our hands, then we should do so, and If not the hand, then by the tongue, and If that’s not possible, then to at least hate it in our hearts.
Our Ummah is sleeping, while blood is flowing from the bodys of our Brothers and Sisters. Firstly, we need to live and die by La Illa Illa Allah then victory will be on it’s way!! Secondly, we need to replace our leaders with ones of piety. Lastly, OUR LEADERS NEED TO UNIFY..WE NEED AN UMMAH(UNITY OF MUSLIMS).
May Allah (SWT) grant us victory, and bring peace and patience to our hearts. InshAllah make our Imaan reach to new hieghts. May the familys of those who were directly effected by this, may they stay steadfast on this great religion. May Allah exalt his deen. Ameen.

I invite and ask all the Muslims and Non Muslims to stand up and make a differance. Don’t be of those who turn away as if nothing is happening. The reality is this could happen to you, how would you feel?– If i have made any mistake’s they are mine and mine only. * Please keep making du’aa (Prayer) for our brothers and sisters in Gaza as much as you can.

Brotherhood in Islam

Narrated Ibn ‘Umar : Allah’s Messenger said, ” A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim. So he should not oppress him nor should he hand him over to (his satan or to his self which is inclined to evil). Whoever fulfils the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfil his needs; whoever removes the troubles of his brother, Allah will remove one of his troubles on the Day of Resurrection; and whoever covers up the fault of a Muslim, Allah will cover up his fault on the Day of Resurrection.” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

“None of you is a believer until he loves for his brother (his fellow Muslims) what he loves for himself.” (Sahih Muslim)

If anyone removes (one of the) anxieties of this world from a believer, God will remove (one of the) anxieties from him on the Day of Resurrection; if one smoothes the way for one who is destitute, God will smooth the way for him in this world and the next; and if anyone conceals the faults of a Muslim, God will conceal his faults in this world and the next. God helps a man as long as he helps his brother. If anyone pursues a path in search of knowledge God will thereby make easy for him a path to paradise. Those who are merciful have mercy shown on them by the Compassionate One, if you show mercy to those who are in the earth, He who is in heaven will show mercy to you- The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaho Alaihi Wassallam).
