The Deenshow :

The demonization project has moved through many phases, from Catholics prior to the Second World War to the Japanese,Jews, Irish and Italians during and immediately after it. Now a new enemy had to be invented: the Muslim as "the terrorist". In fact, an entire industry has developed that manufactures an endless supply of enemies to justify these acts of discrimination, dehumanization,occupation, exploitation, big business big money. In recent decades, terrorism has become the catch-all phrase to scare the largely uninformed American population. The corporate media has duly played its role in whipping up hysteria and feeding into the creation of a fake Boogie man. People, it's time to wake up! Islam and Muslims are not your enemies.

Life is a test

Life is a test , do not be deceived its only temporary the real eternal life is the next one so be good at all time , repel evil with goodness and beautiful character

Tests will come at us from every direction; events will test the very core of our character and the strength of our beliefs. And these are the tests we cannot afford to fail. And Allah, Glory be to Him, has not left us empty-handed.
Building our knowledge and our characters as Muslims is the only way to overcome the mild to the severe trials we will face every day until we die. He says: “Have you not seen how Allah has given the parable of a beautiful word like a beautiful tree whose roots are firmly established, and whose branches tower in the sky? It gives its fruits at all times by the permission of its Lord, and Allah sets forth parables for mankind in order that they may remember” (Quran, 14: 24-25).

A “beautiful word” in this verse refers to the Islamic statement of belief: la illaha ill Allah (there is no being worthy of worship except Allah). And the verse goes on to refer to a beautiful tree, which illustrates the character of a believer.
According to this verse, a believer is one whose Iman, or faith, is unwavering and firmly established. He or she cannot be swayed from the straight path by the winds of trials, no matter how fierce the storm. Knowing and believing that there is no being worthy of worship except Allah, Glory be to Him, and following His commandments provides a believer with the stability and confidence he or she needs to succeed.
A believer’s branches also “tower in the sky” like that of the beautiful tree. By this analogy, a believer’s Iman cannot remain hidden. A Muslim cannot claim to have Iman solely in the heart while not having it show in his or her actions.

Contrary to that, Iman is something so significant that by its nature, it must be seen by anyone who looks at or interacts with a Muslim. Your Iman raises you up to a higher moral level, just as the braches of the beautiful tree reach upwards towards to the sky.
These verses also mention that this tree that is compared with a true believer “gives its fruits at all times by the permission of its Lord.” The tree of Iman is ever fruitful, unlike a real tree that only gives fruits at certain times of the year.
Your faith and your belief in la illaha ill Allah sustains you night and day, in every season, during times of ease and times of great hardship. This is the parable of the believer whose good deeds never take a vacation – they are continuous throughout the day and the night. The chapter goes on to say 
“And the parable of an evil word is that of an evil tree uprooted from the surface of earth having no stability” (Quran 14: 26). An “evil word” in this verse refers to disbelief

The root of most evil in the world is racism , bigotery and Islamophobia 

Education is the cure to all these social illls that originate from ignorance and arrogance:

" No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. " Nelson Mandela

Dr. Bilal Philips: ( Muslim Scholar ) 
" Show respect even to people who don't deserve it; not as a reflection of their character, but as a reflection of yours

Virtues of the Day of 'Ashura(The Tenth of Muharram

We Virtues of the Day of 'Ashura(The Tenth of Muharram)

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) came to Madeenah and saw the Jews fasting on the day of `Ashura’. He said, ‘What is this?’ They said, ‘This is a righteous day, it is the day when Allah saved the Children of Israel from their enemies, so Musa (Moses) fasted on this day.’ He said, ‘We have more right to Musa (Moses) than you,’ so he fasted on that day and commanded [the Muslims] to fast on that day.” (al-Bukhaari, 1865).

 The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “For fasting the day of `Ashura’, I hope that Allah will accept it as expiation for the year that went before.” (Muslim, 1976).

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, ‘If I live to see the next year, in sha Allah, we will fast on the ninth day too.’ But it so happened that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) passed away before the next year came.” (Muslim, 1916)

Let's revive sunnah of our beloved prophet Muhammad Peace be upon him

9th Muharram = Mon, October 10th

*10 Muharram = Tue, October 11th*

11 Muharram = Wed, October 12th

This is believed to be ( Pharoah body ) known as Fir'awn who opposed Allah and Prophet Musa, so he was drowned . Before he was about to die, it was said to him, "Today we shall preserve your body as a sign for those who are to come after you!" (Surah Yunus 92)

Islam is the cure to racism , extremism

The Qur’an, Islam’s revealed text, states: "Whoever kills a person [unjustly]…it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind." (Quir’an, 5:32)

Islam teaches us to act in a caring manner to all of God's creation.  Prophet Muhammad, who is described in the Qur’an as a mercy to the worlds said: “All creation is the family of God, and the person most beloved by God (is the one) who is kind and caring toward His family."

Islam4mankind message to all of mankind let us coexist peacefully and defend freedom of religion , we are all one single family from Adam and Eve , our differences should enrich us not divide us as human being 

“Knowledge about religions is not only a characteristic of an educated person but is necessary for effective and engaged citizenship in a diverse nation and world. Religious literacy dispels stereotypes, promotes cross-cultural understanding and encourages respect for the rights of others to religious liberty.”

Supplication on the day of Arafah

Sheikh yasir Qadri said :  Today is the 9th of Dhul Hijjah, the Day of Arafah.

It is a day of prayer for the pilgrims, and for those of us not at Hajj. It is authentically narrated from a number of early authorities that they would spend the 9th in prayer and du'a and dhikr, sometimes congregating in the masjids, and sometimes praying at home. 

Also, our Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "The best dua is the dua of Arafah," and while no doubt the lion's share of this hadith applies to the pilgrims physically at Arafat, scholars mention that the day too is blessed, even for non-pilgrims. 

So fast on this day, and do as many good deeds as you can, and especially make du'a for all your worldly and spiritual needs. 

May Allah accept from the pilgrims and allow them to return safe to their lands, and may Allah accept from us and answer our prayers and allow us to join the pilgrims in future years! Ameen....

‘The best of supplications is the supplication on the day of AAarafah and the best which I and the Prophets before me have said (is):
لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَريكَ لَهُ، لَهُ المُلْكُ ولَهُ الحَمْدُ وهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَديرٌ.
La ilaha illal-lahu wahdahu la shareeka lah, lahul-mulku walahul-hamd, wahuwa AAala kulli shayin qadeer.
‘None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without partner. To Him belongs all praise and sovereignty and He is over all things omnipotent.’

Increased media propaganda that seeks to demonize Islam will not succeed

Dear brothers and Sisters in humanity there is more in common than differences , let us build bridges of mutual respect , try to understand each other , support each other for the common good of humanity .

In contrast to the divisiveness and cynicism currently fueling our national discourse, Starbucks today debuted "Upstanders," its first original content series, which aims to inspire Americans to engage in acts of compassion, citizenship and civility. “Upstanders” features ten stories, each told in written, video and podcast form, about ordinary people doing extraordinary things to create positive change in their communities. The series is written and produced by Howard Schultz, Starbucks chairman and ceo, and Rajiv Chandrasekaran, Starbucks executive producer and a former senior editor of The Washington Post. 

Now let us watch this short video that talk about how Muslims save Jews:

Let us take a close look at 10 commandments:

The Ten Commandments
(Exodus 12: 1-17 & Deuteronomy 5: 6-21)
Confirmation in the Quran
(Chapter: Verse) 
1. Thou shall not take any
God except one God. 
1. There is no God except
one God (47:19) 
2. Thou shall make no
image of God. 
2. There is nothing whatsoever
like unto Him (42:11) 
3. Thou shall not use
God’s name in vain. 
3. Make not God’s name an
excuse to your oaths (2:224) 
4. Thou shall honor thy
mother and father. 
4. Be kind to your parents if one
or both of them attain old age in thy
life, say not a word of contempt nor
repel them but address them in
terms of honor. (17:23) 
5. Thou shall not steal.
5. As for the thief, male or female, cut off
his or her hands, but those who repent
After a crime and reform shall be
forgiven by God for God is forgiving
and kind. (5:38 – 39) 
6. Thou shall not lie or give
false testimony. 
6. They invoke a curse of God if
they lie. (24:7) Hide not the
testimony (2:283) 
7. Thou shall not kill.
7. If anyone has killed one person it is as
if he had killed the whole mankind (5:32) 
8. Thou shall not commit adultery. 
8. Do not come near adultery. It is an
indecent deed and a way for other
evils. (17:32) 
9. Thou shall not covet thy neighbors
wife or possessions. 
9, Do good to your parents, relatives and
neighbors. (4:36) Saying of the Prophet
Muhammad (P) "One of the greatest sins
is to have illicit sex with your neighbors wife". 
10. Thou shall keep the Sabbath holy.
10. When the call for the Friday Prayer is
made, hasten to the remembrance of
God and leave off your business. (62:9)

To my Muslim brothers and sisters, I have this to say: Do not let trials such ( Islamophobia, propaganda media that is always seeking to demonize Islam and Muslims ) as these weaken your resolve, and know that the promise of Allah is true. Remember the faith that resonated among the earlier people of strong faith , of whom Allah said, 'Those to whom the people said: Surely men have gathered against you, therefore fear them, but this increased their faith, and they said: Allah is sufficient for us and most excellent .

The Qur’an, Islam’s revealed text, states: "Whoever kills a person [unjustly]…it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he had saved all mankind." (Qur’an, 5:32)
Prophet Muhammad said there is no excuse for committing unjust acts: "Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others treat you well you will treat them well, and that if they do wrong you will do wrong to them. Instead, accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do wrong (even) if they do evil." (Al-Tirmidhi)

God mandates moderation in faith and in all aspects of life when He states in the Qur’an: “We made you to be a community of the middle way, so that (with the example of your lives) you might bear witness to the truth before all mankind.” (Qur’an, 2:143)

In another verse, God explains our duties as human beings when he says: “Let there arise from among you a band of people who invite to righteousness, and enjoin good and forbid evil.” (Qur’an, 3:104)

Islam teaches us to act in a caring manner to all of God's creation. The Prophet Muhammad, who is described in the Qur’an as “a mercy to the worlds” said: “All creation is the family of God, and the person most beloved by God (is the one) who is kind and caring toward His family."

Didn't He give victory to His Messenger (SAAWS) when the polytheists deployed every tactic and exhausted every strategy, trying in vain to suppress the Truth? Aren't the pages of history overflowing with examples such as these? Allah says, They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His light, although the disbelievers may dislike it.' (Al-Qur'an 9:32)

Terrorism has no religion

Muslims Are Not Terrorists: A Factual Look at Terrorism and Islam by Omar Albatour 

Every  time an act of terror or shooting occurs, Muslims closely watch the news with extreme trepidation praying that the suspect is not Muslim. This is not because these terrorists are likely to be Muslim but rather because in the instances where they happen to be, we see amplified mass media coverage and extreme unjustified hatred towards Muslims. 
As a Muslim, I am tired of condemning terrorist attacks being carried out by inherently violent people who hijack my religion. I am tired of condemning these attacks to people who are calm and apathetic when Muslims are killed by these same radicalized terrorists.
I am tired of hearing the word “terrorist” not being used when the suspect in a terrorist attack is a non-Muslim. I am tired of the “mentally disabled” excuse being recycled when the suspect in a terrorist attack is a Caucasian. I am tired of seeing hundreds of terrorist attacks carried out by non-Muslims not get the same coverage of even a single terrorist attack where the suspect happens to be Muslim.
Above it all, I am tired of having to repeatedly say that Muslims are not terrorists. It is time we silence this Islamophobia with facts. My next five points will prove once and for all that Muslims are not terrorists:
1. Non-Muslims make up the majority of terrorists in the United States:According to the FBI, 94% of terrorist attacks carried out in the United States from 1980 to 2005 have been by non-Muslims. This means that an American terrorist suspect is over nine times more likely to be a non-Muslim than a Muslim. According to this same report, there were more Jewish acts of terrorism in the United States than Islamic, yet when was the last time we heard about the threat of Jewish terrorism in the media? For the same exact reasons that we cannot blame the entire religion of Judaism or Christianity for the violent actions of those carrying out crimes under the names of these religions, we have absolutely no justifiable grounds to blame Muslims for terrorism. 
2. Non-Muslims make up the majority of terrorists in Europe: There have been over one thousand terrorist attacks in Europe in the past five years. Take a guess at what percent of those terrorists were Muslim. Wrong, now guess again. It’s less than 2%
3. Even if all terrorist attacks were carried out by Muslims, you still could not associate terrorism with Islam: There have been 140,000 terror attacks committed worldwide since 1970. Even if Muslims carried out all of these attacks (which is an absurd assumption given the fact mentioned in my first point), those terrorists would represent less than 0.00009 percent of all Muslims. To put things into perspective, this means that you are more likely to be struck by lightening in your lifetime than a Muslim is likely to commit a terrorist attack during that same timespan.
4. If all Muslims are terrorists, then all Muslims are peacemakers: The same statistical assumptions being used to falsely portray Muslims as violent people can be used more accurately to portray Muslims as peaceful people. If all Muslims are terrorists because a single digit percentage of terrorists happen to be Muslim, then all Muslims are peacemakers because 5 out of the past 12 Nobel Peace Prize winners (42 percent) have been Muslims. 
5. If you are scared of Muslims then you should also be scared of household furniture and toddlers: A study carried out by the University of North Carolina showed that less than 0.0002% of Americans killed since 9/11 were killed by Muslims. (Ironically, this study was done in Chapel Hill: the same place where a Caucasian non-Muslim killed three innocent Muslims as the mainstream media brushed this terrorist attack off as a parking dispute). Based on these numbers, and those of the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the average American is more likely to be crushed to death by their couch or television than they are to be killed by a Muslim. As a matter of fact, Americans were more likely to be killed by a toddler in 2013 than they were by a so-called “Muslim terrorist”.
When a drunk driver causes a car accident, we never blame the car manufacturer for the violent actions of that driver. This is because we understand that we cannot blame an entire car company that produces millions of safe vehicles just because one of their cars was hijacked by a reckless person who used it to cause harm. So what right do we have to blame an entire religion of over 1.6 Billion peaceful people because of the actions of a relatively insignificant few?
I will not deny that terrorism is a real threat, it definitely is. However, it is extremely incorrect to associate the words “Muslim” and “terrorist” when literally all the facts implore you to do otherwise. The only way that we as Americans can defeat terrorism at home and across the world is by accurately targeting its root causes. There have been 355 mass shootings in the United States this year and falsely blaming Muslims for the San Bernardino shooting will do absolutely nothing to address this serious problem. It is time that we begin addressing terrorism on an educated and factual level.
As an American Muslim, I plead you all to deeply consider the facts mentioned here the next time you see a news headline about Muslims and terrorism. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that”. We cannot allow the disparity in media coverage to blind us from the facts and turn us into hateful people, we are smarter than that.

Not in the name of Islam , Terrorism has no religion 

CAIR Reiterates Condemnation of ISIS Violence, Religious Extremism

 The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today reiterated its condemnation of the "un-Islamic and morally repugnant" violence and religious extremism of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
In a statement, CAIR said:
"As we have stated previously, American Muslims view the actions of ISIS as both un-Islamic and morally repugnant. No interpretation of Islam condones the torture and murder of civilians, the destruction of houses of worship or the targeting of religious minorities.
"We reiterate our condemnation of the violent actions and religious extremism of ISIS and reject the false claim that it in any way represents mainstream Islamic thought or practice. ISIS's actions are neither Islamic nor humane, they are simply insane.
"We applaud the humanitarian effort to assist those surrounded by ISIS extremists in Iraq and hope the compassion expressed for Iraqi civilians will lead to similar actions to alleviate the suffering of civilian populations of Gaza, Burma (Myanmar), Syria, and the Central African Republic."
CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
