We’ve been quiet the last 2-3 weeks, and for good reason. Someone left a comment on the first blog saying “what are you gonna do to do things differently?” Well here it is.

Gandhi famously said “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony” and this has been the abiding principle we have followed throughout this project.

We like to smile and laugh, and we had an intention to make other people smile and laugh. You should know, when this was being devised and filmed there was nothing but smiles, laughter and joy on the faces of the people who participated. It was amazing to watch the raw footage that was sent in to us of people who never knew each other laugh and enjoy themselves having fun.

SO what is it? Well first we had an idea. We sent a…

Real Men Don’t Hit Women!

Contrary to what some think and even in some cases (shockingly) preach, Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, condemned the beating of women.

“How does anyone of you beat his wife as he beats the stallion camel and then he may embrace (sleep with) her?”
~ Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. (Bukhari 8.68)

As Muslims, we must stand united on this issue in solidarity with all decent brothers and sisters in our Human Family.

Violence against women is wrong, and must be stopped!

Islam: Sunni/Shia Conflict?

Ahl al Sunnah wal Jamaat (Sunni) and Ahl al Bayt (Shia) are the two largest denominations of Islam, themselves comprised of many subgroups and schools of thought (madhab). Contrary to some media reports, the two denominations are not at war with one another.

While it’s true a profound disagreement over who should lead the Muslims after Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was the root that caused this split; that was nearly one and a half millennia ago!

Until relatively recently, there was no conflict at all between any Sunnis and Shias. When scholars got together, they debated and discussed with proper adab. Renowned scholars of each denomination respect one another to this day, regardless whether or not they disagree on some matters.

Any conflict attributed to sectarian violence between Sunni and Shia is between extremist factions, who have nothing to do with mainstream Sunni/Shia Islam.

We must be on our guard against this fitnah, and encourage people to return to the teachings of Allah SWT in the Holy Qur’an, which all Muslims believe to be the revelation of Allah SWT to his messenger Muhammad, peace be upon him.

Ma Salam.
