Beware of bigotry and racism

The following pictures  are just some thought  provoking pictures , please be open minded

Article VI of the US constitution states: “No religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”
Nihad Awad, founder and director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), called on Carson to withdraw from the presidential race and announced a campaign to give away free copies of the Quran. “We are providing copies of the Quran free of charge,” he said.
“The protection of freedom of religion in America is a fundamental principle of our country,” Awad said in a news conference. “Not long ago, some people thought that a Catholic cannot be a president, an African American cannot be a president. They were wrong then, and they are wrong now. And that is why we say that Ben Carson is wrong today to say that a Muslim cannot be president of the United States.”

Democratic National Committee chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the congresswoman from Florida, said in a statement that other Republicans had failed to distance themselves from views such as Carson’s.
“It’s hard to understand what’s so difficult about supporting an American citizen’s right to run for president, but unsurprisingly, this left Republicans scratching their heads,” she said. “Of course a Muslim, or any other American citizen, can run for president, end of story.”

" Ignorance leads to fear, fear leads to hate, and hate leads to violence. This is the equation. "

The  picture of Syrian passport near Titanic is not a fact , just to prove a point how propaganda media creates the mindset to blame everyhing on others , please be critical, analytical and logical in checking facts

Racism has no place in the land of freedom

Texas Mosque Protestor Publishes Names And Addresses Of Local Muslims

Who are the terrorists exactly? Since this guy is white, the media called him a "protester", and police allow him to walk around outside the mosque with his finger on the trigger. Imagine being this African American Muslim woman walking to her house of worship to pray or to pickup her kids from daycare/school in Texas and being intimidated and terrorized by armed racist vigilantes who claim to be afraid of Muslims.

Hundreds protest after hate crime report at SDSU

Teaching children about world religions and ethics could help counter Islamophobia

May Allah guide Barry West and open his heart to see the beauty of Islam . The light of truth is far more stronger and everlasting than ignorance and hate speech . 

We demand an apology. This is insensitive and hateful. Call Coffee County Commissioner Barry West and demand an apology for this outrageous post. Phone number:

Racism in the media, Terrorism has no religion.

Quran 49:13

O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.

Climate change , environment and what's our responsabilty toward preserving it ?

Xiuhtezcatl, Indigenous Climate Activist at the High-level event on Climate Change

Let us read the following article :A general introduction to Islam’s attitude toward the universe, natural resources, and the relation between man and nature.
By Dr. A. Bagader, Dr. A. El-Sabbagh, Dr. M. Al-Glayand, and Dr. M. Samarrai (edited by

God has created everything in this universe in due proportion and measure both quantitatively and qualitatively.  God has declared in the Quran:
“Verily, all things have We created by measure” (Quran 54:49)
“…Everything to Him is measured.” (Quran 13:8)
“And We have produced therein everything in balance.” (Quran 55:7)
In the universe there is enormous diversity and variety of form and function.  The universe and its various elements fulfill human welfare and are evidence of the Creator’s greatness; He it is Who determines and ordains all things, and there is not a thing He has created but celebrates and declares His praise.
“Have you not seen that God is glorified by all in the heavens and on the earth - such as the birds with wings outspread?  Each knows its worship and glorification, and God is aware of what they do.” (Quran 24:41)
Each thing that God has created is a wondrous sign, full of meaning; pointing beyond itself to the glory and greatness of its Creator, His wisdom and His purposes for it.
“He Who has spread out the earth for you and threaded roads for you therein and has sent down water from the sky: With it have We brought forth diverse kinds of vegetation.  Eat and pasture your cattle; verily, in this are signs for men endued with understanding.” (Quran 20:53-54)
God has not created anything in this universe in vain, without wisdom, value and purpose.  God says:
“We have not created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them carelessly.  We have not created them but for truth.” (Quran 44:38-39)
Thus, the Islamic vision revealed in the Quran is of a universe imbued with value.  All things in the universe are created to serve the One Lord Who sustains them all by means of one another, and Who controls the miraculous cycles of life and death:
“God it is that splits the seed and the date stone, brings the living from the dead and the dead from the living: That is your God - how are you turned away?” (Quran 6:95)
Life and death are created by God so that He might be served by means of good works.
“Blessed is He in Whose Hand is dominion, and He has power over every thing: He Who has created death and life to try you, which of you work the most good.” (Quran 67:1-2)
 All created beings are created to serve the Lord of all beings and, in performing their ordained roles in a cohesively designed society, they best benefit themselves and each other in this world and the next.  This leads to a cosmic symbiosis (takaful).  The universal common good is a principle that pervades the universe, and an important implication of God’s Oneness, for one can serve the Lord of all beings only by working for the common good of all.
Man is part of this universe, the elements of which are complementary to one another in an integrated whole indeed, man is a distinct part of the universe and it has a special position among its other parts.  The relation between man and the universe, as defined and clarified in the Glorious Quran and the Prophetic teachings, is as follows:
·        A relationship of meditation, consideration, and contemplation of the universe and what it contains.
·        A relationship of sustainable utilization, development, and employment for man’s benefit and for the fulfillment of his interests.
·        A relationship of care and nurture for man’s good works are not limited to the benefit of the human species, but rather extend to the benefit of all created beings; and “there is a reward in doing good to every living thing.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)
God’s wisdom has ordained stewardship (khilafa) on the earth to human beings.  Therefore, in addition to being part of the earth and part of the universe, man is also the executor of God’s injunctions and commands.  He is only a manager of the earth and not a proprietor; a beneficiary and not a disposer or ordainer.  Heaven and earth and all that they contain belong to God alone.  Man has been granted stewardship to manage the earth in accordance with the purposes intended by its Creator; to utilize it for his own benefit and the benefit of other created beings, and for the fulfillment of his interests and of theirs.  He is thus entrusted with its maintenance and care, and must use it as a trustee, within the limits dictated by his trust.  The Prophet declared, 
“The world is beautiful and verdant, and verily God, be He exalted, has made you His stewards in it, and He sees how you acquit yourselves.” (Saheeh Muslim)
All of the resources upon which life depends have been created by God as a trust in our care.  He has ordained sustenance for all people and for all living beings.
“ And He has set within it mountains standing firm, and blessed it, and ordained in it its diverse sustenance in four days, alike for all that seek.” (Quran 41:10)
Thus, in Islam the utilization of these resources is the right and privilege of all people and all species.  Hence, man should take every precaution to ensure the interests and rights of all others since they are equal partners on earth.  Similarly, he should not regard such as restricted to one generation above all other generations.  It is, rather, a joint responsibility in which each generation uses and makes the best use of nature, according to its need, without disrupting or adversely affecting the interests of future generations.  Therefore, man should not abuse, misuse, or distort the natural resources as each generation is entitled to benefit from them but is not entitled to “own” them in an absolute sense.
The right to utilize and harness natural resources, which God has granted man, necessarily involves an obligation on man’s part to conserve them both quantitatively and qualitatively.  God has created all the sources of life for man and all resources of nature that he requires, so that he may realize objectives such as contemplation and worship, inhabitation and construction, sustainable utilization, and enjoyment and appreciation of beauty.  It follows that man has no right to cause the degradation of the environment and distort its intrinsic suitability for human life and settlement.  Nor has he the right to exploit or use natural resources unwisely in such a way as to spoil the food bases and other sources of subsistence for living beings, or expose them to destruction and defilement.
While the attitude of Islam to the environment, the sources of life, and the resources of nature is based in part on prohibition of abuse, it is also based on construction and sustainable development.  This integration of the development and conservation of natural resources is clear in the idea of bringing life to the land and causing it to flourish through agriculture, cultivation, and construction.  God says:
“…It is He Who has produced you from the earth and settled you therein...” (Quran 11:61)
The Prophet declared:
“If any Muslim plants a tree or sows a field, and a human, bird or animal eats from it, it shall be reckoned as charity from him.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari, Saheeh Muslim)
“If anyone plants a tree, neither human being nor any of God’s creatures will eat from it without its being reckoned as charity from him.”[1]
“If the day of resurrection comes upon anyone of you while he has a seedling in hand, let him plant it.”[2]
The approach of Islam toward the use and development of the earth’s resources was put thus by Ali ibn Abi-Talib, the fourth Caliph, to a man who had developed and reclaimed abandoned land:
“Partake of it gladly, so long as you are a benefactor, not a despoiler; a cultivator, not a destroyer.”[3]
This positive attitude involves taking measures to improve all aspects of life: health, nutrition, and the psychological and spiritual dimensions, for man’s benefit and the maintenance of his welfare, as well as for the betterment of life for all future generations.  As is shown in the Prophetic declarations above, the aim of both the conservation and development of the environment in Islam is for the universal good of all created beings.

Does ISIS Have Any Religious Legitimacy?

In the wake of the recent attacks carried out by "ISIS" in France

, and many other countries  , we would like to expose some of the dangerous idealogies propagated by this criminal and Inhumane organization. And to be clear, "ISIS" actions are deplorable to muslims and have no basis in Islam. "ISIS"  is criminal organization, not a religious one.

Muslims universally condemn the fanatics who are wreaking havoc around the world. Look closely at them: they are hashish smokers, criminals, womanizers, alcoholics, etc.). They will never represent Islam and will be eventually weeded out.
  But when Right wing fanatics on the other side beat up Muslim women, burn Masjids, paint racist signs and try to cowardly terrorize our communities, they will wake up a sleeping giant.
    Let level headed, good people of all religions and ideologies unite to bring about peace and tolerance in this chaotic world.
     Let any Fanatic reading this page realize that the Masjid (mosque) is our spiritual fort, respect the House of the Almighty!!!
   Look at the face of this house arising from a long sleep. " by sheikh abdallah hakim Quick 

Meanwhile, in France, Secretary of State John Kerry tried to separate the motivations of terrorists and those of peaceful Muslims in a speech Tuesday at the US Embassy in Paris.
"It has nothing to do with Islam; it has everything to do with criminality, with terror, with abuse, with psychopathism," Mr. Kerry said. "All of the leaders of the Muslim world, the real leaders, all of the leaders of every country in the region that are affected – Jordan and Lebanon and Iran and Turkey and Saudi Arabia and the Emirates and Kuwait and Egypt – they’re all opposed to Daesh (another name for IS) and all distressed by the way in which a great religion is being inappropriately presented." 
"Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism."

-- Hillary Clinton

Watch live:

CAIR Reiterates Condemnation of ISIS Violence, Religious Extremism
 The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today reiterated its condemnation of the "un-Islamic and morally repugnant" violence and religious extremism of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
In a statement, CAIR said:
"As we have stated previously, American Muslims view the actions of ISIS as both un-Islamic and morally repugnant. No interpretation of Islam condones the torture and murder of civilians, the destruction of houses of worship or the targeting of religious minorities.
"We reiterate our condemnation of the violent actions and religious extremism of ISIS and reject the false claim that it in any way represents mainstream Islamic thought or practice. ISIS's actions are neither Islamic nor humane, they are simply insane.
"We applaud the humanitarian effort to assist those surrounded by ISIS extremists in Iraq and hope the compassion expressed for Iraqi civilians will lead to similar actions to alleviate the suffering of civilian populations of Gaza, Burma (Myanmar), Syria, and the Central African Republic."
CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

Please note the above statements are from Cair , the following are from an Islamic perspective based on Quran and prophet Muhammad sunnah and examples as understood by mainstream Muslims who are required to follow on his footsteps.

Islam is a religion of Mercy, Peace and Blessing. Its teachings emphasize kind heartedness, help, sympathy, forgiveness, sacrifice, love and care. 
The Qur’an, Islam’s revealed text, states: "Whoever kills a person [unjustly]…it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind." (Qur’an, 5:32)
Prophet Muhammad said there is no excuse for committing unjust acts: "Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others treat you well you will treat them well, and that if they do wrong you will do wrong to them. Instead, accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do wrong (even) if they do evil." (Al-Tirmidhi)

God mandates moderation in faith and in all aspects of life when He states in the Qur’an: “We made you to be a community of the middle way, so that (with the example of your lives) you might bear witness to the truth before all mankind.” (Qur’an, 2:143)

In another verse, God explains our duties as human beings when he says: “Let there arise from among you a band of people who invite to righteousness, and enjoin good and forbid evil.” (Qur’an, 3:104)

“Whoever kills a person who has a truce with the Muslims will never smell the fragrance of Paradise.” (Saheeh Muslim)

“Beware!  Whoever is cruel and hard on a non-Muslim minority, or curtails their rights, or burdens them with more than they can bear, or takes anything from them against their free will; I (Prophet Muhammad) will complain against the person on the Day of Judgment.” (Abu Dawud

As Muslims ., we have to emulate the characteristics of Rasullah ( prophet & messenger ) Muhammads.a.w. We are asked to extend our love and affection to all humankind, regardless of race, religion, age, status, and whether or not they are our family members. We must care for them as a proof of our love for Allah, who has created them all.

Islam teaches us to act in a caring manner to all of God's creation. The Prophet Muhammad, who is described in the Qur’an as “a mercy to the worlds” said: “All creation is the family of God, and the person most beloved by God (is the one) who is kind and caring toward His family."

In the light of the teachings of the Qur’an and Sunnah we clearly and strongly state:

1. All acts of terrorism targeting civilians are haram (forbidden) in Islam.
2. It is haram (forbidden) for a Muslim to cooperate with any individual or group that is involved in any act of terrorism or violence.
3. It is the civic and religious duty of Muslims to cooperate with law enforcement authorities to protect the lives of all civilians.

The importance of good words

Good word is like a good tree .

All praise for Allah Who has honored man ( man and women in this context ) and has created him in the best of forms. Praise for Allah Who has endowed man with the ability to speak with his tongue as one of His greatest bounties. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, the only God Who has no partner. In the Divine last and final testament Quran , Allah says:”See you not how Allah sets forth a parable? A goodly word like a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches (reach) to the heavens (i.e. very high). It brings forth its fruits at all times, by the leave of its Lord. Allah sets forth parables for mankind in order that they may receive admonition (remember).”(14:24‐25).

Allah does not judge you according to your appearance and your wealth, but He looks at your hearts and looks into your deeds.Narrated in Saheeh Muslim, #2564
A good word is charity

Desiring Good for others

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "No one of you becomes a true believer until he likes for his brother what he likes for himself".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
