A New Muslim

A story of a Christian Arab woman who turned to Islam (English) (Arabic)

Here is something to contemplate in regards to the holy Quran being preserved:

If one day we lost all the holy books in the world .. and we asked people to re-write their exact books.

But I can find you more than a million Muslims who rewrite an identical Moshaf which contains the Quran which is preserved till the end of time .. Isn’t that amazing!!

Doesn’t that testify to something as Allah said:

Please visit her website; plenty of interesting information. I think I will be posting from it more inshallah (God willing).

هل انتشر الاسلام بالسيف؟

قال ابن عباس رضي الله عنهما وغيره الاديان ستة واحد للرحمن وخمسة للشيطان وهذه الاديان الستة مذكورة في آية الفصل في قوله تعالى ان الذين آمنوا والذين هادوا والصابئين والنصارى والمجوس والذين أشركوا ان الله يفصل بينهم يوم القيامة ان الله على كل شيء شهيد ” الحج 17.

فلما بعث الله رسوله صلى الله عليه وسلم استجاب له ولخلفائه بعده اكثر الاديان طوعا واختيارا ولم يكره أحدا قط على الدين وانما كان يقاتل من يحاربه ويقاتله وأما من سالمه وهادنه فلم يقاتله ولم يكرهه على الدخول في دينه امتثالا لامر ربه سبحانه حيث يقول :” لا اكراه في الدين قد تبين الرشد من الغي ” البقرة 256. وهذا نفي في معنى النهي أي لا تكرهوا أحدا على الدين نزلت هذه الآية في رجال من الصحابة كان لهم أولاد قد تهودوا وتنصروا قبل الاسلام فلما جاء الاسلام أسلم الآباء وأرادوا اكراه الاولاد على الدين فنهاهم الله سبحانه عن ذلك حتى يكونوا هم الذين يختارون الدخول في الاسلام

والصحيح ان الآية على عمومها في حق كل (more…)

The Gold Quran

Gold Quran

If you had to live your day again, would you still do the same actions you did or would you be more efficient. Could you sit down and plan your most effective doable day?
