The Ummah in Afghanistan will never Experience a Liberation from the un-Islamic Actions unless it has the Right Liberator

It is a painful blow in the heart, to see how the Ummah suffers today and in what a degenerated state it is. The distance from the Shariah and the Islamic order transformed the life of the Ummah into chaos and darkness. Numerous shameful and un-Islamic actions are found among the Muslims. Actions which create […]

رُبَمَا يَوَدُّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَوْ كَانُوا مُسْلِمِينَ

ذَرْهُمْ يَأْكُلُوا وَيَتَمَتَّعُوا وَيُلْهِهِمُ الْأَمَلُ ۖ فَسَوْفَ يَعْلَمُونَ

“It may be that those who are kafir will wish that they had been Muslims. Leave them to eat and enjoy themselves. Let false hope divert them. They will soon know.”

“She started hitting me in the face, which got all red. I felt her hitting me from behind until people got involved,” Mehdi said.

John Hopkins lawsuit: Almost 800 sue after victims were unknowingly infected with syphilis in US Government experiment

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَنْ يُعْجِبُكَ قَوْلُهُ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَيُشْهِدُ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ مَا فِي قَلْبِهِ وَهُوَ أَلَدُّ الْخِصَامِ

وَإِذَا تَوَلَّىٰ سَعَىٰ فِي الْأَرْضِ لِيُفْسِدَ فِيهَا وَيُهْلِكَ الْحَرْثَ وَالنَّسْلَ ۗ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الْفَسَادَ

“Among the people there is someone whose words about the life of this world excite your admiration, and he calls Allah to witness what is in his heart, while he is in fact the most hostile of adversaries. When he leaves you, he goes about the earth corrupting it, destroying crops and animals. Allah does not love corruption.”

By Oliver Smith

Excessive yawning, strong body odour and arrogance are among the suspicious signs that US airport staff are trained to associate with potential terrorists, a leaked document has revealed.

Daily Beast

The Georgia man who planted a bomb was willing to see innocents die so that people would blame Muslims. And he called himself a ‘patriot.’

I thought I had seen every imaginable way to stoke the flames of anti-Muslim bigotry in America. There have been countless people on Fox News, certain Republican elected officials, the professional bigots, and even some right-wing “Christian” leaders serving up hate in various ways.

Shariah law: Texas sparks anguish with legislation that Muslims say stokes Islamophobia

يُرِيدُونَ أَنْ يُطْفِئُوا نُورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَيَأْبَى اللَّهُ إِلَّا أَنْ يُتِمَّ نُورَهُ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُونَ

Canada’s anti-terrorism bill: Let feardom ring

يُرِيدُونَ لِيُطْفِئُوا نُورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَاللَّهُ مُتِمُّ نُورِهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُونَ

“They desire to extinguish Allah’s Light with their mouths but Allah will perfect His Light, though the kafirun hate it.”

The government gets tougher on terrorists, and tramples liberties

“NO POLICE state”, demanded one placard. “Freedom not feardom”, read another. Thousands of Canadians brandished such signs on March 14th in protests against Bill C-51, new anti-terrorism legislation proposed by the Conservative government. Stephen Harper, the prime minister, is betting that the demonstrators represent a vocal minority, and that a tougher stance on security will help him win October’s general election. He is probably right. But C-51, though not completely misguided, is flawed.

U.S. Senate Democrats oppose ‘blank check’ for Islamic State fight

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُنْفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ لِيَصُدُّوا عَنْ سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ ۚ فَسَيُنْفِقُونَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ عَلَيْهِمْ حَسْرَةً ثُمَّ يُغْلَبُونَ ۗ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا إِلَىٰ جَهَنَّمَ يُحْشَرُونَ

WASHINGTON, March 11 (Reuters) – U.S. Senate Democrats made clear on Wednesday they have serious concerns about President Barack Obama’s war authorization request for his campaign against Islamic State, despite appeals from top administration officials for bipartisan support for the plan.

“Democrats are not willing to … give this or any other president an open-ended authorization for war, a blank check,” Senator Robert Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said at a hearing as senators begin considering Obama’s request for a formal authorization for the seven-month-old campaign against Islamic State.

Democrats on the panel said they were concerned that Obama’s proposal does not set geographic restrictions on the campaign against the militant fighters. They also worry that it does not include strict enough limits on the use of ground troops.

اللَّهُ وَلِيُّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا يُخْرِجُهُمْ مِنَ الظُّلُمَاتِ إِلَى النُّورِ ۖ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا أَوْلِيَاؤُهُمُ الطَّاغُوتُ يُخْرِجُونَهُمْ مِنَ النُّورِ إِلَى الظُّلُمَاتِ ۗ أُولَٰئِكَ أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ ۖ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ

Biden slams U.S. lawmakers’ letter to Iran

Al-Arabiya

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden lashed out at Republican lawmakers for their “highly misleading” letter Monday to Iran’s leaders cautioning against a nuclear deal with the United States.

“The letter sent on March 9th by 47 Republican Senators to the Islamic Republic of Iran, expressly designed to undercut a sitting president in the midst of sensitive international negotiations, is beneath the dignity of an institution I revere,” Biden said in a statement.

“Anti-terror” invention designed to spray Muslims with PIG BLOOD is “deeply offensive”, says faith group

At the Battle of Uhud when the Mushriks were exposed to defeat, Hanzalah bin Abu ‘Aamir struck the horse of Abu Sufyaan bin Harb, and he fell down on the ground. Hanzalah rushed, intending to slay him, but Al-Aswad bin Shaddaad, also known as Ibn Sha’oob, caught him. He attacked Hanzalah with his lance and struck him a fatal blow. Seriously wounded, Hanzalah walked towards him while holding his lance, but he gave him another strike which killed him.

When this was mentioned to the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم he said: “I have seen the angels making Ghusl on him between the heaven and the earth with rainwater in a silver bowl.”

The Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم then said: “Ask his family about that.” When his wife was asked about him she said, “He set out while being in the state of Janaabah [ritual impurity] once he heard the call for battle.”

The Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “This is why the angels performed Ghusl on him.”
