Yousef Estes explains the verse about beating one’s wife in the Quran and how often the translations do not explain the real meanings, that is why translations are not accepted or considered as Quran rather only as approximate meanings.  Only the Arabic which remains in its unchanged formate is considered Quran. 

 

 

 

Part two of Explore The Truth: All What You Want to Know About Islam.  This part goes into more detail about the religion and starts the first of the two pillars of Islam, the statement of faith that there is only one god But God the Almighty, and that Mohammed is the last of the Prophets, and secondly that we should worship by praying five times daily at prescribed times, sunrise, after the noon peak, afternoon, sunset, and evening.

 

 

 

 

Part three: all what you need to know about Islam.  This video continues to discuss what Islam teaches, including Zakat or charity, fasting in Ramadan where Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset from food, drink and sexual contact. Lastly the pilgrimage or Hajj is discussed as a sense of unity among all peoples.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a funny guy but listen to what he has to say about the basics of islam and how often people misunderstand what Islam is all about.  Here he clarifies what the basic information about Islam is, and tries to point out that we have to judge people by Islam, not Islam by the people, because they are human and falable, where as the religion is perfect and given by God.  Also, translated versions of the Quran are just that, translations.  Once one letter of the Quran is changed?………………. it is no longer considered “the Quran”.  Since it was compiled and put into written form, not one single letter has changed.  Each new print is check several times and verified by scholars before it can go to the printing press.  By translating, the pure meanings are lost, therefore its not condidered the word of God, merley just a text to help those who dont know arabic to understand the basic ideas held within the Quran.  I hope that viewers find the video informative.

 

 

A very nice video of a woman from Dallas who coverted to Islam.  She discusses some of the reasons for her decision and her thoughts about Islam.

 

 

Ahmed Dedaat lectures about Jesus Christ. The Bible shows that a true prophet is one which believes in the Christ. Then if this is true, why do Christians not see that Prophet Mohammed is a true Prophet when we know that Jesus Christ was born of a miraculus birth, spoke from the manger, and is the Messiah, who will return.  Please enjoy this lecture which is one of 12 parts available on youtube.

Good Deeds Challenge #15

Posted: 30 May 2008 12:20 AM CDT

A dear, dear friend of mine wrote this challenge and sent it to me. I thought it was beautiful: “Here’s an idea for the blog. Encouraging each other to be a strong supporter of our spouses and have the intimate relationship of Rasul (saw) and Khadijah (RA) . The girls sang this nasheed during the Walimah and it was beautiful, MASHALLAH. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLfvzncSwzA    ((IF YOU HOLD YOUR CURSOR OVER THE LINK THE VIDEO WILL PLAY IN THIS WINDOW.))
Going through Islamic history, we so often read about all the “huge” events that have defined Islam, we tend to skip over the seemingly insignificant ones.

Zamilooni means “Hold Me”- just thinking back to when the Prophet SAW first received revelation– the emotions that must have been going through his heart and mind- the first person that we went to, the person to comfort him, understand him, help him make sense of it all, was his beloved wife, Khadija. He ran to her asking her to Hold Him & Cover Him- and she did. She was the pillar of strength in one of the most defining moments of history. She was there for him, she supported him, she believed in him, she encouraged him… The relationship between them is a shining example for all of us….”

Make du’a for this sister and her family, for all of us to succeed in this challenge, and for a renewed commitment to our roles as the “garments” of our spouses (and if you are not married yet, ponder what this will mean in your impending marriage, insha’ALLAH).

He stepped inside his home, and he overwhelmed with fear
An angel came with words from God, things were still unclear
Saying read – read, but he couldn’t read, then amazing words he heard
A trembling deep inside his heart, confused by what had occurred
There was only one who could comfort him
And help him see the light
To ease his fears, to reassure
It was khadijah, his wife…
 

Chorus
He said Zamilooni, Zamilooni, Dathirooni, Dathirooni, (Envelop me, Embrace me)
A mighty task has come before me…
I need you here with me…
By my side…

She was a woman of nobility, successful in all her trade
Many wealthy men had asked for her, she had turned them all away
But when she saw Muhammad, a shining moon, may peace be on his soul
He was a light for her – so right for her – her life will now be whole

But she had never seen him so distressed, as he was there that day
She would comfort him, and hold him tight, and chase his doubts away

Chorus

Bridge…
We look for stories of love, in places dark and cold
When we have a guiding light, for the whole world to behold
But were so selfish in our ways, and to the ones we hold so close
Our own pleasure and happiness is what we value most

But she sacrificed all her wealth and everything she had
And he honored her, and gave her faith,
when the times were bad, when times were bad…

Now years have passed, times had changed,
since khadijah breathed her last.
Message of the one true God,
was spreading far and vast

But then he came across some jewelry,
that khajidah once had worn
His eyes began to swell with tears,
his heart again began to mourn

Cause she was there for him, when times were rough,
and his enimies were cruel
Was the first believer, so keen and eager, to comfort al-Rasool

Chorus

Mawlaya salli wa sallim da’iman abada
‘Ala habibika khayril khalqi kullihimi
(O my Leader, send your salutations and blessings forever
Upon Your Beloved, the best of the whole of creation)
