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.

John F. Kennedy: We All Breathe The Same Air

Indeed, we are nations and tribes that we might come to know one another as is mentioned in the Holy Quran (49:13)…

We all live on Earth, one small planet in our solar system, our true homeland in the Cosmos. Is it not time we started building bridges instead of walls and worse, fighting wars?

JFK - We all inhabit this small planet

Deepest condolences to the people of Volgograd

“Our deepest condolences to the people of Volgograd and Russia. You are in our prayers. These attacks are yet another painful reminder of the work our Human Family still needs to do, to counter our species tendency to violence. Human Beings can be better than angels or worse than animals, let us strive to be the best we can be, and avoid the latter…”
