  1. Whats Wrong With Homosexuality

    Russell.... A little story I would like to share with you: Long ago in the city of Baghdad, there was a Muslim empire. On one side of the River Tigris were the royal palaces and on the other side was the city. The Muslims were gathered in the Royal Palace when an athiest approached them. He said to them, ‘I don’t believe in God, there cannot be a God, you cannot hear Him or see Him, you’re wasting your time! Bring me your best debator and I will debate this issue with him.’ The best debator at the time was Imam Abu Hanifah Rahimullah. A messenger from amongst the Muslims was sent over the River Tigris to the city, where Abu Hanifah Rahimullah was, in order to tell him about the athiest who was awaiting him. On crossing the River Tigris, the messenger conveyed the message to Abu Hanifah Rahimullah saying, ‘Oh Abu Hanifah, an athiest is waiting for you, to debate you, please come!’ Abu Hanifah Rahimullah told the messeneger that he would be on his way. The messenger went over the River Tigris once again and to the Royal Palaces, where everyone including the athiest awaited the arrival of Abu Hanifah Rahimullah. It was sunset at the time and one hour had passed, but Abu Hanifah Rahimullah still hadn’t arrived. Another hour had passed, but still there was no sign of him. The Muslims started to become tense and worried about his late arrival. They did not want the athiest to think that they were too scared to debate him, yet they did not want to take up the challenge themselves as Abu Hanifah Rahimullah was the best of Debators from amongst the Muslims. Another hour passed, and suddenly the athiest started laughing and said, ‘ Your best debator is too scared! He knows he’s wrong, he is too frightened to come and debate with me. I gurantee he will not turn up today.’ The Muslims increased in apprehension and eventually it had passed midnight, and the athiest had a smile on his face. The clock ticked on, and finally Abu Hanifah Rahimullah had arrived. The Muslims inquired about his lateness and remarked, ‘Oh Abu Hanifah, a messenger sent for you hours ago, and you arrive now, explain your lateness to us.’ Abu Hanifah Rahimullah apologises for his lateness and begins to explain, while the atheist listens to his story. ‘Once the messenger delivered the message to me, I began to make my way to the River Tigris, and on reaching the river bank I realised there was no boat, in order to cross the river. It was getting dark, and I looked around, there was no boat anywhere nor was there a navigator or a sailor in order for me to cross the river to get to the Royal Palaces. I continued to look around for a boat, as I did not want the athiest to think I was running away and did not want to debate with him. I was standing on the river bank looking for a navigator or a boat when something caught my attention in the middle of the river. I looked forward, and to my amazement I saw planks of wood rising to the surface from the sea bed. I was shocked, amazed, I couldn’t believe what I saw seeing. Ready made planks of wood were rising up to the surface and joining together. They were all the same width and length, I was astounded at what I saw. I continued to look into the middle of the river, and then I saw nails coming up from the sea floor. They positioned themselves onto the boat and held the planks together, without them being banged. I stood in amazement and thought to myself, ‘Oh Allah, how can this happen, planks of wood rising to the surface by itself, and then nails positioning themselves onto the boat without being banged?’ I could not undertsand what was happening before my eyes.’ The athiest meanwhile was listening with a smile on his face. Abu Hanifah Rahimullah continued, ‘I was still standing on the river bank watching these planks of wood join together with nails. I could see water seeping through the gaps in the wood, and suddenly I saw a sealant appear from the river and it began sealing the gaps without someone having poured it, again I thought, ‘Ya Allah, how is this possible, how can sealant appear and seal the gaps without someone having poured it, and nails appear without someone having banged them.’ I looked closer and I could see a boat forming before my eyes, I stood in amazement and was filled with shock. All of a sudden a sail appeared and I thought to myself, ‘How is this happening, a boat has appeared before my eyes by itself, planks of wood, nails, sealant and now a sail, but how can I use this boat in order to cross the river to the Royal Palaces?’ I stood staring in wonderment and suddenly the boat began to move. It came towards me against the current. It stood floating beside me while I was on the river bank, as if telling me to embark onto it. I went on the boat and yet again it began to move. There was no navigator or sailor on the boat, and the boat began to travel towards the direction of the royal palaces, without anyone having programmed it as to where to go. I could not understand what was happening, and how this boat had formed and was taking me to my destination against the flow of water. The boat eventually reached the other side of the River Tigris and I disembarked. I turned around and the boat had disappeared, and that is why I am late.’ At this moment, the athiest brust out laughing and remarked, ‘Oh Abu Hanifah, I heard that you were the best debator from amongst the Muslims, I heard that you were the wisest, the most knowledgable from amongst your people. From seeing you today, I can say that you show none of these qualities. You speak of a boat appearing from nowhere, without someone having built it. Nails positioning themselves without someone having banged them, sealant being poured without someone having poured it, and the boat taking you to your destination without a navigator against the tide, your taking childish, your talking rediculous, I swear I do not belive a word of it!’ Abu Hanifah Rahimullah turned to the athiest and replied, ‘You don’t believe a word of it? You dont believe that nails can appear by themselves? You dont believe sealant can be poured by itself? You dont believe that a boat can move without a navigator, hence you don’t believe that a boat can appear without a boat maker?’ The athiest remarked defiantly, ‘Yes I dont believe a word of it!’ Abu Hanifah Rahimullah replied, ‘If you cannot believe that a boat came into being without a boat maker, than this is only a boat, how can you believe that the whole world, the universe, the stars, the oceans, and the planets came into being without a creator? The athiest astonished at his reply got up and fled.
  2. Whats Wrong With Homosexuality

    RUSSELL, Just because God can do complex things does not make him complex, it seems to me that you confuse ability with nature. In other words, just because God can do complex things (such as creating the universe) it does not make His nature complex.So it stands to reason that God is the simplest, and therefore the best, explanation. Francis Bacon, the famous philosopher, has rightly said that a little knowledge of science makes man an atheist, but an in-depth study of science makes him a believer in God. Since you insist there is no God, please explain why?
  3. Whats Wrong With Homosexuality

    Russel, No, you cannot prove the existence of God to an atheist. The reason is simple. Whenever you present any evidence to an atheist, they can either say "there's a scientific explanation for this", or "there's no scientific explanation now, but at some point in the future, science will have advanced sufficiently to be able to supply an explanation". These two options are available to the atheist, no matter how compelling the evidence might be. For example, suppose God wished to make His presence unambiguously known to everyone in the world. So, he decided to paint large multi-coloured semi-circles across the sky, in order to tell everyone that there's an intelligence "up there" who can create such things. (Note that He only does this on days when rain is falling and the sun is shining). Immediately, scientists started seeking an explanation for these semi-circles; one that doesn't require any kind of Divine Agency. Eventually, they came up with an explanation - something about light being reflected off the backs of raindrops, and splitting into separate colours as it passes through those raindrops. And a very convincing explanation it was, too. And suddenly, what was once a "miracle" now fits entirely within the realm of physics. My point is, that for atheists to convert to Islam (or any other religion), they need to encounter a phenomenon that they believe is outside the scope or ability of science. This will prompt them to look for other world views. If they are blessed, they will chance across Islam, and be sufficiently motivated to learn more. The question for the atheist is "how great a miracle would you have to observe, to be convinced that some Divine Agency is responsible for it?".

  7. Rip 911 Vs Rip 24/7

    R.I.P. to the 2,976 American people who lost their lives on 9/11 R.I.P. to the 48,644 Afghan and 1,690,903 Iraqi people who paid their ultimate price for a crime they did not commit. R.I.P to my dead brothers in Syria, to my crying mothers in Afghanistan, to my sceaming sisters in Iraq, to my shot fathers in Iran, to my impaled aunts in Pakistan, to my beaten uncles in Chechyna, to my burried and hanged cousins in Burma, to my tortured grandparents in Bosnia, to my crying children in Palestine and to the forgotten people of Somalia and Yemen..... And to the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who experience trepidation everyday. Your 9/11 is their 24/7
  8. Eid Mubarak <3

    Eid isn't happiness for those that wear new clothes, but it is for those whom Allah is pleased with of His slaves, and those that were rescued from the great torment. May Allah swt accept all of our fasts, good deeds and give us the opportunity to see the blessed month of Ramadan next year again, Ameen.
  9. Assala mu alaykum... Eid Mubarak to all.... May Allah accept our good deeds, forgive our transgressions and sins and ease the suffering of all Muslims around the globe…. Eid will be celebrated, In Sha Allah on August the 9th in South Africa. Where in the world are you & when are you celebrating?
  10. Sayyid Ibn Tawus and Shaykh al-Saduq have both narrated the following on the authority of Jabir ibn `Abdullah al-Ansari: I visited the Messenger of Allah (a.s) on the last Friday of Ramazan. As he saw me, he said, “Jabir: This is the last Friday of Ramazan. You should thus bid it farewell by saying the following: O Allah, (please) do not make it the last of our fasting in this month, but if You decide so, then (please) make me enjoy (Your) mercy and do not make me deprived (of it). Verily, anyone who says this supplication will win one of the two good things; either attaining the next Ramadhan or having the forgiveness and mercy of Almighty Allah.”
  11. Dajjal Has Arrived On Earth ? (”•”)

    Alert Ummah, there is a 90% chance that we will see the Jewish Dajjal in our lifetime.... The Prophet said, 'The terror caused by Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal will not enter Medina and at that time Medina will have seven gates and there will be two angels at each gate (guarding them). (Sahih Bukhari: Book of afflictions, Volume 9, Book 88, Number 240) Just look at the recent Map of Madinah city, if you find one, and you will see that there are 7 main entrances today leading to the city. One road coming from Jeddah, the other coming from Makkah, another coming from Rabigh, one from the airport, another from Tabouk, and two from surrounding areas. Please memorize the 10 first verse of surah kahf as well as the last 10 verse . Doing such protects you from the affliction of Dajjal as the Prophet said. Always recite this Du'a or supplication in prayer when your are finishing after saying tashahud: Allahuma inni Aoudu Bikka Min Adabil Qabr, Wa Min Azabi Jahanum, Wa Min Fitnatil Mahyaie wal Mamat wa mein fitnatil Masih ad Dajjal According to the saying of the Prophet reciting this in prayer will protect one from the affliction of Dajjal.

    # My Jihad is to detach my heart from this world and attach my heart to Allah :i: :heart:
  13. Allah Is Merciful

    Allah’s (swt) Mercy far surpasses His Wrath. Man is given numerous chances and occasions whereby to repent and seek to engage in behaviours and actions that please Allah (swt) – “Say: 'O My slaves who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful - ”[soorah az-Zumar (39): 53] Allah is more merciful to His believing servants than that mother could ever be to her child :heart:

  15. Looking For A Job In Toronto - Canada

    Wasalaam I do pray and hope that you find something suitable soon In-Shaa-Allah. It's sad to hear that hijaab is not "accepted" Alhamdulillah, here in South A there is no question of the attire we choose to wear as working muslims. There are a lot of "anti-Islam" people around, but not half as bad as what other countries have to put up with or go through. My duaa's are with you :)
