Councillor from French far-right party Front National converts to Islam – and urges others to follow


Maxence Buttey says there are a lot of similarities between Islam and the Front National

A local councillor representing Marine Le Pen’s far-right party, the Front National, has announced he has converted to Islam – and has urged fellow party members to do the same.

Maxence Buttey, 22, has been suspended from a regional Front National committee after he went public with his decision and sent out a “proselytising video” to the party in which he praised the “visionary virtues of the Koran and urged them to convert, the Telegraph reported.

Mr Buttey, who is a councillor in the eastern Paris suburb, Noisy-le-grand, said the Front National and Islam had a lot in common.

He told French newspaper, Le Parisien: “Like Islam, the FN defends the weakest. The party denounces exorbitant interest rates charged on the debt of our country, and Islam is against the practice of usury.” Continue reading →

Depression — results of not abiding by faith

Depression — results of not abiding by faith


But if anyone turns away from My reminder, his life will be a dark and narrow one…” (Qur’an, 20:124)
“When Allah desires to guide someone, He expands his breast to Islam. When He desires to misguide someone, He makes his breast narrow and constricted as if he were climbing up into the sky. That is how Allah defiles those who have no faith.” (Qur’an, 6:125)
The failure of irreligious people in submitting themselves to Allah causes them to be in a constant state of ill ease, anxiety and stress. As a consequence, they are afflicted by various psychological illnesses, which reveal themselves in their physical selves. Their bodies wear down more quickly, and they age rapidly and degenerate.
As a result of physical or psychological stress, the individual’s adrenal gland (the gland above each kidney) secretes large amounts of glucocorticoid hormones. These hormones increase the energy level of muscles, and temporarily halt such activities as growth, which are inessential at that moment. In cases of extreme physical and chronic psychological stress these hormones, which are otherwise of vital importance, can give rise to stress related disorders, such as high blood pressure, obesity, bone erosion and stomach ulcers.
However, since believers are psychologically healthy, they do not fall prey to stress, or despondence, and their bodies are ever fit and healthy. Continue reading →

When we are faced with difficulty…


When we are faced with difficulty, we should be patient with our hearts and show gratitude with our tongues. Such that the evil in our lives is transformed into good. And that which is believed to be tribulation will be transformed into a gift.

In our physical form we turn to the Ka’bah, but with our hearts we turn to Allâh. Anything we see to have been difficult in our lives, say Alhamdulillâh Alhamdulillâh Alhamdulillâh.

CNN) — It was in the cave of Hira that the prophet Muhammad received the first revelation of the Quran. For rugby’s original wild child Sonny Bill Williams, meeting a Tunisian family who lived with their five children in a one-bedroom flat in the south of France proved pivotal to his conversion to Islam.

The New Zealander’s unshakeable belief in the Almighty has proved to be the making of one of the island nation’s most gifted — and controversial — sports stars.
“I was real close with them, and I saw how happy and content they were. And to see how they lived their lives, it was just simple,” Sonny Bill Williams, a prodigious rugby talent, professional boxer and tattooed poster boy, tells CNN’s Human to Hero series.
