Let us all challenge France racist ban on Muslim attire

On French beaches you have to show more skin," says a fully-clothed police officer, armed with pepper spray ,Unfortunately  French Police are ordering Muslim women to strip their clothes , instead of preventing crimes or keeping peace , police in France  are harassing muslim women.
Notice that Muslim women  are  dressed modestly like the Mother of Jesus used to proudly dress with dignity and pride .
Let us all be the voices of reason by speaking up peacefully , injustice anywhere is certainly injustice everywhere . What kind of freedom if Policeman start to decide what women  should wear ? 


Muslim Entrepreneur Pays Fines For Muslim Women Ticketed For Wearing Burkini



Rachid Nekkaz is an entrepreneur who believes that the burkini ban in 26 French resort towns is “deplorable” and “goes against democracy and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in every way.” He has decided to do something about it and has paid the fines for five Muslim women since the ban went into effect last month.  This is nothing new for the wealthy businessman.

Islam4mankind would like to thank all those that stand against Islamohobia and bigotry and challenge racism 





In a ruling, the court said the ban on the full-body burkini swimsuits were 'seriously, and clearly illegal'.



Notice similar attires  , A Catholic Nun , Muslim lady and Scuba outfits , France is only baning the lady in the middle picture , yeah you guested it  right Muslim are being harassed by French authorities , how shameful , look at the double standard , where is the so called French " egality " or so called freedom 

Thanks God this ban has being challenged on courts , the courts ruled it's illegal but still some French   mayors racist are insisting on the ban despite being illegal , immoral and unconstitutional.
An article by Commondreams : 
" Each time the French government attempts to unveil Muslim women, it does so under guise of liberalism. The universalistic, humanist values of the Enlightenment are brandished as the state presents itself as the protector of secularism, women’s rights, and civilization itself against the supposed, constructed barbarism of an extremist other, an enemy within the French nation. Yet these supposedly universal values are in fact eminently specific to France and its colonial history, and instrumentalized to perpetuate state racism. So when Prime Minister Manuel Valls declares that burkinis are “not compatible with the values of the French Republic” he is, in a way, correct, but the issue lies with the values of the French Republic, not the burkini. "



Muslim women around the world are proudly challenging Islamophobia and racism




Muslim women are empowered by Islam and hijab , they freely choose to wear it , they will not be intimidated by no one 

Each and every time in which the Muslims are beset with trials from every periphery, it is a time when Muslims should continue being Muslims, only better Muslims.


Islam4mankind would like to say to all my dear brothers and sisters in Islam “don’t be Sad”; you are on the true religion – believing in One God and all the Messengers sent to mankind, then don’t be sad.

Allah says in Quran

“…Bear with patience whatever befalls you….” (Qur’an 31:17) and “Be not sad, surely Allah is with us.” (Qur’an 9:40)


Verily, with hardship, there is relief

“Verily, with hardship there is relief” (Qur’an 94:6)






Here is pictures of Christian Nuns  on the beach enjoying and having fun without French Police harassment.

“…Truly, Allah loves those who turn unto Him in repentance and loves those who purify themselves”

Tawbatun Nasuha literally means Sincere Repentance. It is to turn to Allah after feeling penitence.

* Tawbatun Nasuha implies that when you happen to commit a sinful act, you should feel penitent for it, then should implore Allah for forgiveness remorsefully, and then should refrain from committing the same error again.

Sarah Mahdi write: Wishing I was there again. All those white dots you see, those are people, 3 million people from around the globe - each with their own languages, customs and cultures- harmoniously unified in prayer. Can you imagine getting 3 million people visiting your city all to do the same thing, at the same time five times every day? Yet, it happens every day during the annual Hajj pilgrimage.

I was blessed enough to be one of those millions in 2008. I stood next to my brothers and sisters from around the world to glorify God and seek his Mercy. I have experienced nothing more powerful. Imagine being in such a huge crowd, yet when you are bowing in prostration to God, the only thing you hear is the chirping of the birds above.

You may have known about Hajj and Mecca, but did you know this blessed place is also mentioned in the bible?

"Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them. Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools. (From the NIV Bible, Psalms 84:5-6)"

Baca (also spelled Bakka) is thought to be an older name for Mecca, as it is described as the location of the first mosque, which Islam teaches to be the Kaaba, and a home to Abraham peace and blessings be upon Him, who, according to the Qur'an, built the Kaba with his son Ishmael(pbuH).

Hope to be one of those dots in the crowd again soon Insha Allah - God willing.
My heart is there, with all my brothers and sisters performing pilgrimage .

Be a source of mercy and compassion to the world :


Islam teaches us to be merciful to the entire creation, to Muslims and non-Muslims, to friends and enemies and even to the animals. Mercy (raḥmah) in Islam has a very wide meaning that includes kindness, compassion, love, tolerance, patience with people, and to treat others the way we would love to be treated. This Islamic value is at the core of the prophetic message and meaning of faith, just as it was in all of the revealed religions before Islam. Every Muslim needs to strive to be an agent of mercy on earth for all human beings and creatures.
Let us ponder and analyze Quran :

Allah said:

وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ

We have not sent you ( prophet Muhammad) except as mercy to the worlds.

Welcome there is plenty of Moroccan tea to share with friends and family , after all we are all one single family from Adam & Eve , let us all coexist , have some tea and talk about our shared human values that bring us together message by Rachidm cohost of Islam4mankind radio

Perhaps one of the most famous example of Prophet Muhammad mercy was the forgiveness he showed his enemies after he finally had power over them. The Quraish tribal aristocracy had persecuted the Muslims for nearly twenty-three years only because they chose to worship Allah instead of the idols. They mocked the Muslims, threatened them, tortured them, punished them with an economic boycott, and even raise arms against them after they fled to Medina. They killed Hamza the Prophet’s uncle, mutilated his corpse, and unjustifiably killed many other Muslims.
Despite all of this, the Prophet was able to win the hearts and minds of the Arabs and he finally gained power over the Quraish when the city of Mecca surrendered. Rather than taking revenge, the Prophet forgave his enemies and declared it to be a day of mercy.
Al-Qasim ibn Salim reported: When they came to the Ka’bah they were holding onto its door and the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said:
مَا تَقُولُونَ وَمَا تَظُنُّونَ
What do you say? What do you think?
They said three times, “We say you are the son of our brother.” The Prophet said:
أَقُولُ كَمَا قَالَ يُوسُفُ لَا تَثْرِيبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْيَوْمَ يَغْفِرُ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ وَهُوَ أَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ
I say to you as Joseph said to his brothers: No blame upon you today. Allah will forgive you, for he is the Most Merciful of the merciful. (12:92)


Let us all be a voice for justice , compassion and mercy for all Muslims and non Muslims alike 

If we take into consideration the fact that Muslims and Christians together make up over half of the world's population. If these two communities can make peace and justice with each other, all of humanity will benefit from it.

People of all faiths need to sincerely work  with each other's to achieve world peace , end hunger , work  side by side to inspire , motivate and coexist peacefully in this small global village called planet earth , we need to be voice to clean not only our heaths but also our environment that we live in 
Let us join together and be a mercy to all mankind . 

Each and everyone of us should start the initiative to building bridges of understanding, mutual respect and cooperation among all mankind . Let us not forget we are one single human family from Adam & Eve 

All humans descend from Adam and Eve. In that sense, we are all essentially brothers and sisters. Our differing colours and diversity is not there to cause division but as a method of recognising one another. Such traits do not elevate a person’s status but rather our status with God is based on our level of piety and righteousness. In a further verse from the Qur’an

" And amongst his signs is the creation of heaven and the earth, and the diversity of your language and colours; Verily, in these are signs for those who have knowledge."
The Qur’an, Chapter 30, Verse 22

Islamophobia and its cure

Please watch the following video that address Islamophobia industry which manufacture hate.

 let the conversation begin with open mind after we watch these view videos :




MEDIA EFFECT ON PEOPLE – STEREOTYPE

One of the most common causes of racism is stereotypes. Through all the sources of mass media such as television, radio, the internet, music, book and other social media outlets.... The potential for stereotypes to build are of a definite possibility when a person, especially one that is very young, is exposed to stereotypes of a specific group especially Muslims always being porttrayed negatively , unjustly all the time, then viewers or readers  will assume all Muslims are that way. Likewise, when a source is constantly displaying negative things about a particular race, then that will affect the overall opinions as well. This is also inline with the media representation theory which state that media tend to only project one version of reality, not reality itself and how a particular group of people or person identities are being presented to the audience.

We need to challenge and hold accountable the bias in the media by writing , educating and bringing awareness
to Islamophobia machine that seeks to dehuminize Muslims . The good news is American   are good people once they found out about all biased steeotypes of media, they are more tollerant and understanding, we would like to thank each and everyone that stands for the truth .






Islam4mankind would like to thank the state of California for their leadership on recognizing Muslims.

California Recognizes August as Muslim Appreciation and Awareness Month

by 

The California State Assembly voted Monday to pass a resolution that officially recognizes August 2016 as Muslim Appreciation and Awareness Month. 
The resolution comes at a time of increased anti-Muslim rhetoric, according to a recent civil rights report compiled by the California chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). 
HR-59, introduced by California Assemblymember Bill Quirk in June after Quirk was approached by a community activist on the issue, was officially passed Aug. 1 with bipartisan support. 

"Muslim Americans have made contributions to education, science, entertainment and medicine both nationally and globally," Quirk told NBC News in an email. "Unfortunately, the Muslim community has been, and continues to be, the target of harassment, discrimination and assaults." 
He added, "It is appropriate to acknowledge and promote awareness of the myriad invaluable contributions of Muslim Americans in California and across the country, and extend to them the respect and camaraderie every American deserves." 
CAIR-Sacramento Valley Executive Director Basim Elkarra told NBC News that the passing of the resolution represented a day of hope for the Muslim-American community. He explained that Muslims contribute greatly to the diversity of the nation and the state, carrying various key roles throughout the state of California as engineers, doctors, law enforcement officials, and more. 
"Muslims participate in every facet of life in California and for them to be appreciated for their contributions ... it's very hopeful for the community when the community is under siege in this election cycle," Elkarra said.


Earlier this week, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump suggested that Ghazala Khan, the mother of a U.S. Army captain who was killed in Iraq, did not speak on stage at the Democratic National Convention because "maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say." In response, Muslim-American women on Twitter began using the hashtag #CanYouHearUsNow to challenge stereotypes and anti-Muslim rhetoric.

Good word is like a good tree


All praise for Allah Who has honored man ( man and women in this context ) and has created him in the best of forms. Praise for Allah Who has endowed man with the ability to speak with his tongue as one of His greatest bounties. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, the only God Who has no partner. In the Divine Book, Allah says:”See you not how Allah sets forth a parable? A goodly word like a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches (reach) to the heavens (i.e. very high). It brings forth its fruits at all times, by the leave of its Lord. Allah sets forth parables for mankind in order that they may receive admonition (remember).”(14:24‐25).
