"And never say with regard to anything, 'I will certainly do so tomorrow.
Unless (you say), 'By Allah's Will.' Remember your Lord when you forget, and say, 'I have the hope that my Lord will guide me to what is closer thereto in direction.'" - Surah Kahaf 18:23-24

Ibn Kathir reports that the Quraysh sent Nadhar bin Haarith and Uqba bin Abi Mu'eet to Madinah (before the Hijrah) to ask the Jews about the description of the final Nabi. The Jews told them to pose three questions to Rasulullah ﷺ. If he answered these, then he was a true Nabi.

original_sin

The story of Adam and Eve (may peace be upon them) is quite similar in the Bible and the Qur'an with minor differences yet the lessons derived from these stories differ greatly. Sometimes minor changes to any document can completely alter the actual meaning of the story. Both the scriptures talk about the creation of Adam and then Eve (may peace be upon them) which are somewhat similar. However the events after their creation are of great significance. Soon after God commands them not to eat of this particular tree as eating of it would cause harm to them and the act would be transgression.

Some "researcher" known as P. N. Oak has come up with some ludicrous, puerile and absurd comments regarding Islam. His theory postulating the "impact of the Vedic religion on Islam" is laughable. Those acquainted with history will smile at the silliness of the assertions made by Oak.


Among the fallacious claims made by Oak is that The Holy Ka'bah in Makkah was "originally a Shiva temple". But, for this astounding and absurd claim he fails to present any evidence. He permits his imagination to play havoc with him, hence he bases his claim on "a gold dish" supposedly located in the Ka'bah. Oak alleges that some inscription on the gold dish supposedly found in the Holy Ka'bah refers to "Vikram's enlightened rule".

Allah سبحانه و تعالى has tested the people of the past in various ways and will keep on testing His creation. He has informed us about these tests in the Quran. Our beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ also informed us that Allah سبحانه و تعالى will test us from time to time. Sometimes hardships and losses occur in life due to our sins. To wash of these sins in this world, Allah سبحانه و تعالى inflicts upon us these hardships:

muqaddima_bahawalpur

I feel myself deeply privileged to write introduction to this historic Judgment pronounced by a Learned Special Judge, Muhammad Akbar Khan. He was required by the Judicial Council, the highest Tribunal in Judicial Hierarchy of the Muslim State of Bahawalpur to reconsider the Judgment of the Chief Court of Bahawalpur, which had held Qadianis to be a sect of Islam. It was the most controversial issue whether a marriage of a Muslim woman subsists with a husband after his conversion from Islam to Qadiani faith. This was a case of chequered history witnessing divergent decisions.

President Sarkozy & The Niqab Ban

franceniqabPresident Sarkozy wishes to eliminate freedom of expression in France. The same freedom of expression with which his voodoo dolls were allowed to stay on the market for sale. A French appeals court, in November 20081, had given this permission in the name of freedom of expression. Today, the same president is trying to infringe on the right of freedom of expression of about 5-6 million2 French Muslims. One then wonders if freedom of expression in France is only for the French non-Muslims. Why this discrimination? Why this injustice?

The important question is that should people in France not be allowed to follow their religion and beliefs openly? Should they be oppressed?

Some people try to suggest that Niqab is not part of Islam and that it is only “cultural”. Hence, this article will first establish whether Niqab is part of Islam or not. Later, we will analyze some of the objections raised by people who wish to ban Niqab.
