This is Not the Path to Paradise

Response to ISIS

INTRODUCTION Counsel for the Youth

All praise belongs to the Lord of the worlds. May peace and blessings be upon our Master Muhammad, the Prophet of Mercy and Messenger of Wisdom, his benevolent family, and his noble companions, perpetually until the end of time.

This is addressed to the young men who bear arms against their own nations and destroy both country and countrymen. You have abandoned all values and made enemies of the world. We call on you to pause, reflect, and heed this counsel for the sake of all who want good for our community.

As an introduction to the statement, we present these four quotations for serious consideration.

I joined the US Army a few months before 9/11 happened..

I joined the US Army a few months before 9/11 happened; I became Muslim that winter after researching to find the truth about the religion after those events. I went to basic training the first summer after 9/11, as a Muslim, and there was an immense number of recruits who joined just to “kill f***ing Muslims” (and there I was the only one amongst them).

I had many people tell me there would be a “training accident” or that if they wouldn’t get in trouble they would “stab me in the face” due to my being Muslim. I noticed that this directly related to how Christian the person was as I generally did not have any trouble from Atheists or Agnostics (there was one exception of a devout Christian who was nice to me).

Question: Why does the violence and anger towards someone who did nothing increase along with apparent faith in Christianity?

 

A Golden Opportunity to Have Your Du’aas Answered!!

This coming Friday (9 Dhil Hijjah / 3rd Oct) represents one of THE most amazing opportunities a believer could ask for. Not only are we in the best 10 days of the year, Friday will represent the best of these 10 days, it will also be the best day of the week; within it it will also contain the best hour for making dua, and to top it all off, many will also be fasting!

As for the day of Arafaah:

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There is no day on which Allaah frees more people from the Fire than the Day of ‘Arafaah. He comes close and expresses His pride to the angels, saying, ‘What do these people want?’”

As for fasting on the day of Arafaah for those not performing Hajj:

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was asked about fasting on the Day of ‘Arafaah. He said, “It expiates for the sins of the previous year and of the coming year.” Narrated by Muslim.

As for the du’aa of the fasting person:

Our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “There are three prayers that are not rejected: the prayer of a father for his child, the prayer of the fasting person and the prayer of the traveller.”

As for Du’aa in sa’at al-Istijabah on Friday:

Jâbir (may Allah be pleased with him) relates that the Prophet Sall Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “Friday is comprised of twelve hours. There is one in which a Muslim who asks Allah for something will have it granted to him. Seek it in the last hour after `Asr.”

My dear brothers and sisters, Allah alone knows whether we will ever get this opportunity again or not. Prepare for it from now. Make a list of du’aas you want to make and spend the final hour before Maghrib this coming Friday sincerely pleading to Allah. This IS one of THE best opportunities we may get for a while.
