Please assist those affected by recent tornadoes across USA.

Today Thursday May 26 , 2011 radio lamagica1220am ( ) , weekly radio program called Islamformankind at 1:10 pm will be talking about emergency relief effort to assist those affected by recent Tornadoes that swiped our nation.

Those who (in charity) spend of their goods by night and by day, secretly and publicly, will have their reward with their Lord: on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve." (Al-Quran, 2:274)

Helping others gives comfort to the hearth; the first person who benefits from an act of charity is the benefactor himself by watching a smile form on the lips of another person.

Show kindness to others and you will certainly be the first one to benefit.
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."

Please tune in to today radio Islamformankind at 1220 am ( the show will start at 1:10 pm ) , you may listen live online at every Thursday at 1:10 pm Florida time. You may call to participate at 407 343 6001 , the show will be in English and Spanish .

In response to the recent Tornadoes that seeped USA, it’s a duty to every human being to assist regardless of religious’ affiliation, color or race. We are all humans, we share the same basic needs, it’s a shame to see people’s sufferings and not do anything to help. Please assist as much as you can, volunteer your time if you cannot do so financially.

In the past few weeks we have seen tornadoes devastate city after city here in America. On April 27, a pack of twisters roared across six Southern states, killing 314 people, more than two-thirds of them in Alabama. That was the single deadliest day for tornadoes since the National Weather Service began keeping such records in 1950.

On Sunday afternoon, a killer tornado ripped through a 6 mile stretch Joplin, Missouri city of 50,000 people, slamming straight into St. John's Regional Medical Center. With the death toll currently at 117, the National Weather Service has recorded this as the single deadliest twister in the past 60 years. Thousands of people have been left homeless and with no means of survival. It is time for us to do our part and help our fellow brothers and sisters of humanity.

Central Florida plans on making survival kits for those afflicted. Our aim is to collect enough funds and specific supplies to create a survival kit with the following items:

Box 16x16x16 $1.10
5 x bottles of water $0.70
3 X drink mix to flavor bottled water $0.36
Toothbrush $0.10
Shaver $0.10
Q-Tips (10ct in Mini Ziplock) $0.15
20 x Alochol Wipes $0.20
Comb $0.16
Bar of Soap $0.35
2 X Roll of Toilet Paper Individually wrapped $0.84
5 X Zip Lock Bags (To store important documents etc in) $0.25
5 x Bandaids $0.25
Mini Pretzles $0.40
Aquafresh Toothpaste 6oz $1.00
12oz+ Shampoo $1.00
2 Bx Crackers $3.62
1 Jar Peanut Butter $1.50
2 X Kool Aid Drink Mix $0.42
1 box Nature Valley Gronola Bars (4ct) $1.00
2 x Powered Milk Packets $4.00
1 Box / Bag Cereal (Family Size) $2.50

This box is worth $20. For 650 boxes this translates to $13,000 that we have only a week to collect. If we do not collect enough in funds, we will have to take out some of these essential items and cut down on the supplies we send.

We will NOT be collecting any clothing or shoes at this time.

We will need lots of volunteers to help us pack these items into the boxes on Sunday June 5th inshaAllah at our Sanford Warehouse Base Location for this project. We plan to meet from 11am - 5pm inshaAllah to pack the 650 boxes. The more volunteers we have the quicker we wll finish inshaAllah. We will also need help to transport items and boxes from Sam's Club and Home Depot to the warehouse on Saturday June 4th. Please let Masuma or Sofiyya know if you can help on Saturday June 4th.

We are working with ICNA Relief to collect our donations on June 6th inshaAllah. ICNA Relief's disaster response team is already in contact with the local muslim community and will soon be dispatching these basic supplies. Point of distribution will be local Islamic center which has not been hit by tornado. We apologize for the short notice but PLEASE consider our neighbors. It is time to get mobilized!

MONETARY DONATIONS ARE PREFERRED. Please contact Sofiyya Mohammed at (407) 373-9570 or Masuma Virji at (407) 474-3156 to make a contribution or to sponsor boxes to help the people of Joplin. You can make your tax deductible checks out to:
Knowledge for Living or United Muslim Foundation: both local Muslim non-profit charities that are collecting for this cause. Or you can make your secure online donation for the Tornado Survival Kits at

You may contribute to any organization that you would like , please be part of the the solution , the more you give, the more you receive. May God ( Allah ) bless you.

An open letter to Jehovah Witness :

A letter to Jehovah Witness by Rachidm: Dear Jehovah’s Witnesses:

I would like to share with you some biblical research based upon my discussions with Jehovah’s Witnesses friends.
My wife used to be a Jehovah Witness. When we got married, I, as a  Muslim told her ; "you have the right to practice your religion". I even offered to give her a ride if needed to the Kingdom hall ( Jehovah Witness place of worship ) .
 With an open mind, I supported her and told her I would never mind her practicing and preaching her religion. During our first couple years  of blessed and happy marriage together, I was privileged to engage with my parents in law (upon their request) in a comparative study between Islam and their beliefs. Although they were discouraged from dialogue since they believe their way is the only correct way, I always enjoyed a good open discussion about religion in general.
My Mom in law offered me a copy of the New World Translation  (a version of the bible exclus…


Greetings of peace,

This post is an answer to a new friend whom I recently met and respect , a devout Christian  passionate about sharing his religion with others , who challenged me to provide some proofs regarding why Muslims don't accept the doctrine of  original sin; a doctrine ( including the concept of trinity ) that  was  added by the Church at the Council of Nicaea some 325 years after Jesus left the earth.  Notice I say left the earth ( meaning resurected alive by Allah )  and not died yet or crucify as some claims ,  but that is a topic for another day. Back to the doctrine of original sin.

Are we born with so called Original sin or born innocent ?
Is a Newly Born Baby really a Sinner? Islam Challenges The Concept of Original Sin. Let us found out why ?
let's take a look at the following passages from The Bible:

(Deuteronomy 24:16)

“The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers, every man shall be pu…

Medical, Scientific and religious Reasons for not Eating Pork:

People ask me all the time, Why don't you eat pork? ...Is it for  religious reasons? ...Are you vegetarian? Are you a Muslim or a Jew  ? Do you know that pork taste good ?

Honestly, just today I was even asked for sound scientific evidence affirming the danger of eating pork. I will share a few findings with you.

Medical and Scientific Reasons for not Eating Pork:

This is a direct quote from "What the Bible Says About Healthy Eating" by Dr. Rex Russell. He attended Baylor School of Medicine in Houston, Texas and did his residency at the Mayo Clinic at Rochester, Minnesota.

Let us watch this short video , let the conversation begin:

"One reason for God's rule forbidding pork is that the digestive system of a pig is completely different from that of a cow. It is similar to ours, in that the stomach is very acidic. Pigs are gluttonous, never knowing when to stop eating. Their stomach acids become diluted because of the volume of food, allowing all kinds of vermin…

Women are empowered and inspired by Islam

In response to Donald Trump recent comments about Muslim Women , ( Muslim women "not allowed to speak?" )

Islam4mankind is delighted to highlight women's role in Islam .

First of all Prophet Muhammad was very successful social reformer as well as spiritual and political leader, who championed the rights of the weak and oppressed. The Qur'anic verses referring to women had the effect of vastly improving the status and rights of women at the time they were revealed. Muslim women were granted the right to own, inherit and dispose of their own property as they saw fit; reject forced marriages; keep their own names and identities after marriage; initiate divorce; and obtain an education - back in the 7th century. In contrast to the dismal situation affecting many women in developing countries today, early Muslim women were noted for their learning and accomplishments. The Prophet declared, 'To seek knowledge is an obligation on every Muslim, male and female,' and …
