Islam empower women

Dr. Jackie Y. Ying is totally owning it in the field of nanotechnology, which is why she was featured on Science’s instagram as #WCW! Born in Taipei, Ying earned her bachelor’s degree in engineering from Cooper Union and her master’s degree and PhD from Princeton University. At the age of 35, she became the youngest full professor at MIT, but moved on to become the first executive director of the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology in Singapore. Ying has written over 290 articles and has 120 patents to her name in the field of nanotechnology, with topics ranging from “Using Green Tea Nanocomplex to Fight Cancer,” to “Cost-Effective Substrates for the Scalable Expansion of Human Stem Cells Under Chemically Defined Conditions.” As a practicing Muslim, she gives back by mentoring Muslim youth who are interested in science via Mendaki’s Project Protégé.

Repentance & Forgiveness in Islam Kutbah Arabic/English




Please know that the holy Quran related stories of prophets and messengers who apologised to Allah by expressing their repentances to Him. They did so even though they were the highest people in rank, hence setting the ethical nature of asking for apology.
Adam and his wife Eve, pbut, asked Allah, the most Encompassing, for forgiveness. They said, “Our Lord, we have wronged ourselves, and if You do not forgive us and have mercy upon us, we will surely be among the losers.” (Al Araf: 23). 

وَالَّذِينَ إِذَا فَعَلُواْ فَاحِشَةً أَوْ ظَلَمُواْ أَنْفُسَهُمْ ذَكَرُواْ اللّهَ فَاسْتَغْفَرُواْ لِذُنُوبِهِمْ وَمَن يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلاَّ اللّهُ وَلَمْ يُصِرُّواْ عَلَى مَا فَعَلُواْ وَهُمْ يَعْلَمُونَ
Thereupon, Allah accepted their apology.
Noah pbuh turned back to Allah for pardon, as he said, “My Lord, I seek refuge in You from asking that of which I have no knowledge. And unless You forgive me and have mercy upon me, I will be among the losers.” (Hud: 47).

قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ أَنْ أَسْأَلَكَ مَا لَيْسَ لِي بِهِ عِلْمٌ وَإِلاَّ تَغْفِرْ لِي وَتَرْحَمْنِي أَكُن مِّنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ


Musa (Moses), pbuh, supplicated to Allah saying, “My Lord, indeed I have wronged myself, so forgive me," and He forgave him. Indeed, He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.” (Al Qasas: 16).

رَبِّ اِنِّىۡ ظَلَمۡتُ نَفۡسِىۡ فَاغۡفِرۡ لِىۡ فَغَفَرَ لَهٗ​ؕ اِنَّهٗ هُوَ الۡغَفُوۡرُ الرَّحِيۡمُ ﴿28:16﴾


For his part, Yunus, addressed his Lord while he was in the belly of the whale saying, “There is no deity except You; exalted are You. Indeed, I have been of the wrongdoers.” (Al Anbiyaa: 87). 

Apologizing is an act of civility, which shows respect for oneself and others. Moreover, it is a moral characteristic that every sensible person must not ignore. About it, Omar Ibn al Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, said, “the wisest people are the most forgiving.”
Our Prophet pbuh promoted the culture of apologising amongst individuals, for it is such a character that fosters in them love, trust and compassion. For example, he pbuh warned against avoiding others for more than three days and nights. He, however, praised those who offer to apologise and promised them reward.
On this matter, he pbuh says, “it is not permissible for a Muslim to shun his brother for more than three nights. When they meet, this one turns away (from that one) and that one turns away (from this one) and the best of them is the one who greets his brother first.”
Asking for forgiveness needs to be made politely using good words, just as Allah, the most Exalted, says, “And not equal are the good deed and the bad. Repel [evil] by that [deed] which is better; and thereupon the one whom between you and him is enmity [will become] as though he was a devoted friend. But none is granted it except those who are patient, and none is granted it except one having a great portion [of good].” (Fussilat: 34-35).

وَلَا تَسْتَوِي الْحَسَنَةُ وَلَا السَّيِّئَةُ ادْفَعْ بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ فَإِذَا الَّذِي بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَهُ عَدَاوَةٌ كَأَنَّهُ وَلِيٌّ حَمِيمٌ

Truly how wonderful it is to foster this culture in our households so that the husband and the wife apologise to each other should anyone of them has done something wrong! They should do this courteously so they can feel satisfied, regain self-respect, and help themselves strengthen their bonds of love and stability.
It was narrated from Abu al Dardaa that he said to his wife Umm al Dardaa, “if I upset you I shall apologise to you, and if you upset me, you shall apologise to me. If you fail to do this, we might part any time soon.”
Parents should thus be an example in apology, tolerance, leniency, love and reconciliation.

Islam empower women

The following inspiring story is written by Maryam  Amir

lthough most of my family members converted to Islam and I was raised in the faith, I really didn't want to be Muslim as a young person. I doubted whether it was for me, questioned God and I especially was not into the concept of hijab.

When I was in high school, my family and I went on a holy pilgrimage to Mecca. For the first time, I felt my heart come alive and I knew it had been touched by God. I began reading the English translation of the Qur'an and the more I read it, the more I fell in love with Islam. The Qur'an taught me about social justice; it inspired me to speak against racism, it empowered me to stand up against sexism. 

The Qur'an and the story of the Prophet Muhammad's life (peace be upon him) transformed me as a woman. I had never felt so powerful, so assured, so ready to be an agent of positive change, than I did because of Islam's teachings. Islam inspired me to focus my life's education and scholarly work on women's rights. 

I'm enthusiastic, energetic, passionate and assertive. I have a second degree black belt in tae kwon doe and a master's from UCLA in social justice education. I've memorized the Qur'an and speak four languages. I've scored three pointers in intense basketball games and gone running, surfing, biking and dune buggying not only with my head covered, but always wearing long, modest dresses. I am not an anomaly; Muslim women who wear hijab all around the world have incredible background and skills. You think hijab is a sign of being brainwashed? All our uniqueness takes hecka bossness, by God's mercy! 

I chose this. And I LOVE this. And so do millions of women around the world. From neurosurgeons to women who have never gone to school, wearing hijab is a choice many share.

Next time you want to claim we're mentally enslaved, consider: Does speaking on behalf of women you don't understand make you a proponent of women's rights? Or does it demonstrate colonial ignorance? Perhaps the one claiming others are brainwashed is the one demonstrating exactly that.

Islam taught me to love myself as a woman, and it taught me to appreciate, value and respect women of all or no faith traditions, covered completely or not at all, simply because God honored us by creating us female. Islam innately honors our gender; we are blessed because we're women. 

Isn't that the type of message we want for our daughters? Be who you are- LOVE who you are- because God honored you with being female. Hijab is an act of thanking God for that blessing. #rossignoldemission #frenchwomenchoosethistoo #womensrightsministershouldstandforALLwomen

Islam4mankind encouage each and everyone to be open minded , travel as much as you can , learn to apperciate and respect diversity .

Terrible events unfolding the world over. It was Ankara. Now Brussels

Imam Zaid Shakir
" Not in Our Names: Islam’s Total Rejection of Suicidal Terrorism

The recent atrocious, barbaric, condemnable, despicable attacks in Brussels should move every Muslim to swift, unqualified condemnation. Why? Because as Muslims we are taught that murder is wrong. We are taught that suicide is wrong. We are taught that retaliating against unsuspecting innocent people for real or perceived injustices is wrong. We are taught that violating the sanctity of public space is wrong. These things are all unconditionally wrong, and I unequivocally condemn them. 

Attributing these crimes to Islam is also wrong. Dead wrong. Our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) informed us, “No one of you murders at the time that he kills and remains a believer. Therefore, beware, beware (Ibn Hibban, 5979)!” To clarify, the murderer is engaging in an act that true faith would have prevented, hence, his engaging in such a reprehensible act is a sign that he does not truly believe. One version of this Hadith mentions, “Faith is stripped from him like his trousers. When he returns to faith, it returns to him.” In other words, as long as he is pursuing his murderous path, he is following the path of one lacking faith. This is a clear proof that people who commit acts like those in Brussels, or similar acts in Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Kenya, Nigeria, Yemenor anywhere else are not acting as Muslims, or on behalf of Islam. They should heed the prophetic warning and beware.

The Prophet (peace and blessing of Allah upon him) also mentioned, “A Muslim is one all people are safe from his tongue and hand (Ahmad, 6753; Tabarani, 3170).” This narration indicates that one who unleashes his tongue and hand against the life and honor of people is not a true Muslim. Similarly, a believer is described as one to whom people can entrust their lives and possessions (Nasa’i, 4997; Ibn Majah, 3934). Along these lines, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) once exclaimed, “I swear by Allah he does not believe! I swear by Allah he does not believe! I swear by Allah he does not believe!” Those hearing this inquired, “Who, O Messenger of Allah?” He responded, “One whose neighbors are not safe from his evil deeds (Bukhari, 6016).” A version of this Hadith in Sahih Muslim reads, “One who does not keep his neighbor safe from his evil deeds will not enter Paradise (Muslim, 46).” The perpetrator of crimes such as indiscriminant suicidal murder is stripped of faith and denied Paradise by the testimony of our Prophet (peace and blessing of Allah upon him).

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) further stated, “There is no faith for one who is not trustworthy (al-Bayhaqi, 18,851).” It should be noted that in the latter narration the negation of faith is absolute, Laa Imaana, as it contains the particle of absolute negation (Laa an-Naafiya lil Jins). Imam al-Bayhaqi’s narration continues, “…and there is no religion for one who dishonors the covenant.” Again, the negation of religion here is absolute. Citizenship and acceptance of a visa to enter a country involve covenants, which include respecting the lives and property of one’s fellow citizens or those whose land one has entered as a guest, émigré, refugee or visitor. 

All of these narrations clearly enforce the idea that criminal murderers who have declared war on their neighbors, fellow citizens, innocent and unsuspecting men women and children, have rendered themselves totally untrustworthy and are disregarding one of the most fundamental foundations of human society. These are foundations that Islam exalts and honors. By so doing, faith has been stripped away from them and they have forfeited their religion. That being the case, how can anyone claim that these people are acting on the basis of Islam?

In addition to losing their faith, they have been consigned to Hell. In the case of the attacks in Brussels, and similar atrocities in the Muslim world that are too numerous to mention, the criminals multiplied the gravity of their murderous crimes by committing suicide. Suicide is strictly forbidden in Islam, and one who commits suicide will not only be dispatched to Hell, he will continue to repeat the actions which led to his death over and over for eternity in the midst of the Inferno. In other words, the suicide bomber will suffer the torment of Hell in addition to the pain of blowing himself up, continuously, for eternity. 

The Prophet (peace and blessing of Allah upon him) mentioned in this regard, “Whosoever kills himself with a blade, that blade will remain in his hand and he will repeatedly stab himself in the stomach in the Hellfire, forever and ever and evermore. Whosoever drinks poison, thereby killing himself, will hold that poison in his hand and will continually drink it in the Hellfire, forever and ever and evermore. Whosoever hurls himself from a mountain, thereby killing himself, will continue hurling himself from a mountain in the Hellfire, forever and ever and evermore (Muslim, 109).” What in the teachings of Islam provides an exemption to one who commits suicide by blowing himself up and then compounds that sin by murdering innocent people? Absolutely nothing. In the case of the suicide murderer, the adage that two wrongs do not make a right is doubly true. 

One aspect of these Hadiths is the strength of the wording conveying the eternal damnation befalling one who commits suicide. Imam Muslim’s version contains the words Khaalidan (remaining for eternity), Mukhalladan (forced to remain for eternity) and Abadan (eternally). Hence my translation, “…for ever and ever and evermore.” The strength of this condemnation alone should give pause to one who thinks that such actions are in anyway sanctioned by Islam.

It is well-known in Muslim teachings that no believer, even one punished for his sins, will remain forever in Hell. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) mentioned, “One who says, ‘There is no God but Allah’ and in his heart is good equivalent to a grain of barley will be extracted from the Hellfire. One who says, ‘There is no God but Allah’ and in his heart is good equivalent to a grain of wheat will be taken out of the Hellfire. One who says, ‘There is no God but Allah’ and in his heart is good equivalent to a grain of corn will be removed from the Hellfire (Bukhari, 44).” What does this say about the hearts and the destiny of a murderous suicide bomber? What does it say about his good, or lack thereof?

The gravity of suicide and its implications are summarized in the following Hadith Qudsi. The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) has related directly from our Lord, “My servant has competed with me concerning his life [by hastening his death], therefore, I have made Paradise forbidden for him (al-Bukhari, 3463).” Anyone contemplating the murderous crimes that threaten the very foundation of our societies should reflect well on what we have mentioned here. By the testimony of our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) suicidal terrorism is not the weapon of the weak, it is the weapon of the wretched and the damned.

The “fatwas” and “commanders” who justify the suicidal murder committed by their dupes have no weight in this regard. As for the “fatwas,” they are all flawed in that they are based on a false analogy. Namely, they mention the Companions of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) who launched themselves into a battle knowing they faced certain death. While the incidents being referenced by these “fatwas” are certainly true, in every instance the Companion was killed by the actions of others. None of them killed themselves. 

Furthermore, there are occasions when individuals committed suicide on the battlefield, and in each of them the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) mentioned that he was going to Hell. For example, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) mentioned during a battle that a particular man was going to Hell. The Companions were incredulous hearing this, seeing that the man had fought valiantly, so they investigated. They found that the man had committed suicide owing to an injury he sustained during the skirmish (Muslim, 111). His valor and faith were negated by his suicide. The gravity of suicide is further accentuated by the fact that the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) would not perform the funeral prayer for one who killed himself (Muslim, 978; Nasa’i, 1966).

As for the “commanders” who order these foul operations, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah upon him) has emphasized that they are not to be obeyed. One of those given command over a group of Muslims, during the prophetic epoch, ordered them to jump into a blazing fire. When the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) was informed of this he said, “Had you jumped into the fire you would have remained therein until the Day of Resurrection. Verily, there is no obedience that involves rebellion against Allah. Obedience is in lawful matters (Muslim, 1840).” Suicide and murder both involve rebellion against Allah as they are both unlawful, therefore, any order to commit them is to be flatly rejected, regardless of who issues that order.

Islam’s strict prohibition of terrorism and suicide bombings is exhaustively treated by Shaykh Tahir al-Qadri in his masterful, "Fatwa on Terrorism and Suicide Bombings." Knowing that there are some Muslims who will complain that what I have written here does not address the injustices of the West and its state-sponsored terrorism in the Muslim world, that I am only penning these words because I am “embarrassed” by the acts of these miscreants, that I waited until such attacks afflicted Americans or Europeans to speak out against them, or the usual litany of objections and complaints against the timing or content of the likes of what I have written, I believe that the following quote from the introduction of Shaykh al-Qadri’s, "Fatwa", is appropriate:

“I also regard it my fundamental duty to inform the respected readers that I am writing this book solely for the sake of Islam’s dignity and in service to humanity. This book has not been written to condone or approve of the unpopular and unwise policies of global powers, nor does it seek to justify the wrong policies and actions of any government, including that of Pakistan. I neither seek the pleasure of any government, nor the tribute or appreciation from any international power or organization. … The objective is to wash the stain of terrorism from Islam, to familiarize the Muslims [and others] with the real teachings of the Qur’an and Sunna (the Prophet’s way) and to attempt to prevent human suffering from the flames of terrorism (Fatwa, 17).”

May Allah bless us to wipe the scourge of terrorism from the face of the earth and to do all we can to show that it has absolutely no foundation in the teachings of Islam. This is one of the great callings of our generation. May we respond in ways that are best, motivated by the saying of the Almighty, “Good and evil are not equal. Respond to evil with what is best [good]. You will unexpectedly find one between whom he and you there was enmity become like an intimate friend. This will only be obtained by those who are both patient and possess a great portion [of spiritual rectitude] (Qur’an, 41: 34-35).”

#BrusselAttacks #terrorism #muslims #islam #religion

Sheich Omar Suleiman ( Muslim Imam and speaker )  stated today : 
 " Within the last few weeks, Ankara and Istanbul saw disastrous terrorist attacks in city centers which garnered little media attention. Today we see the same carnage in Brussels. Once again, depraved human beings striking in populated places that should be safe for innocent families to live in peace. People should not have to worry about suicide bombers, gunmen, or drone strikes as they go about their daily lives in airports, marketplaces, banquet halls, etc. The madness must stop. Praying for the victims of todays attacks and the ones that are ignored on a daily basis. "

Statement of Muslim Advocates in Response to Belgium & Turkey Attacks

 " Our condolences go out to the victims of the horrendous attacks in Brussels and Turkey. These attacks are another tragic reminder that victims of terrorism share no single race or faith. Those of us who seek to keep our families safe from violence must continue to stand together and not allow ourselves to be divided as we face threats from violent extremists.

Unfortunately, some of our leaders seem more pre-occupied with scoring political points by stoking fear and peddling discrimination than uniting Americans. Again there are irresponsible calls to single out Americans for suspicion based on nothing more than their faith. Already, Senator Ted Cruz has called for American Muslim neighborhoods to be “patrolled” and Donald Trump has once more called for our country to close itself off from the rest of the world while seeking for ways to broaden the use of torture.

Let us be clear: targeting Americans based solely on their faith is not only bigoted and wrong, it undermines our safety by wasting precious law enforcement resources. Now more than ever, we need law enforcement focused on following legitimate leads and credible intelligence, not engaged in blanket, unconstitutional surveillance.

Casting suspicion on all Muslims plays directly into the hands of the perpetrators of these heinous attacks. To keep our families safe and our nation united, Americans of all faiths must stand together and uphold the values that have made our nation special and a place worth fighting for." 

#CAIR: Cruz Proposes Law Enforcement 'Patrol and Secure Muslim Neighborhoods'

And the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) compared it to "the dark days of the 1930s" in Europe, calling it "a very frightening image."

"What is a Muslim neighborhood? How many Muslims have to be in a neighborhood before it becomes worthy of checking papers and kicking in the doors of homes and businesses?" Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for CAIR, told NBC News. "What constitutes a Muslim neighborhood?"

Hooper - exasperated in the phone call -- called "anti-Muslim bigotry" a "Republican thing."

"Each day you wonder what the next bizarre and unconstitutional policy proposal will come out of the Republican side of the presidential campaign," Hooper said. "It's really astounding."

Last week, Cruz named nearly two-dozen foreign policy advisers he confers with on issues of national security. Several have drawn harsh criticism for their views of Muslims.
