Today Ramadan start , may Allah accept our fasting , our prayers , may Allah showers us with mercy and forgiveness and give us hearth that only see good in others and forgive in order to be forgiven :
"
سلام الله عليكم ورحمته وبركاته ..

بارك الله لنا ولكم في رمضان ..
ونحمده أن بلغنا إياه، ونسأله سبحانه أن يوفقنا لحسن العمل فيه ..

ومن تمام حسن العمل سلامة القلوب :
(إن اللهَ لا ينظر إلى صوركم وأموالكم، ولكن ينظر إلى قلوبكم وأعمالكم) رواه مسلم ..

فلنستقبل الشهر بقلوب طاهرة، تعفو وتصفح :
{ وَلْيَعْفُواْ وَلْيَصْفَحُواْ أَلاَ تُحِبُّونَ أَن يَغْفِرَ الله لَكُمْ } ..

بلى والله نحب ذلك، فنسأله تعالى أن يعفو عنا وعنكم، وأن يتقبل منا ومنكم .
" Imam Mahmoud Ameen 



 The Quran – the words of Allah  are perfect words, from a perfect God, to His Creation.  On the night known as the ‘Night of Decree’, in the Islamic month of Ramadan, the Quran descended, from the Preserved Tablet[1]  to the Lowest Heaven.  It then descended from the heavens to the earth in small stages. 

“It is We Who have sent down the remembrance (i.e. the Quran) and surely, We will guard it from corruption.” (Quran 15:9)

2:183
Sahih International
O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous -
Spanish
¡Creyentes!; Se os ha prescrito el ayuno, al igual que se prescribió a los que os precedieron. Quizás, así, temáis a Alá. 
2:184
Sahih International
[Fasting for] a limited number of days. So whoever among you is ill or on a journey [during them] - then an equal number of days [are to be made up]. And upon those who are able [to fast, but with hardship] - a ransom [as substitute] of feeding a poor person [each day]. And whoever volunteers excess - it is better for him. But to fast is best for you, if you only knew.
Spanish
Días contados. Y quien de vosotros esté enfermo o de viaje, un número igual de días. Y los que, pudiendo, no ayunen podrán redimirse dando de comer a un pobre. Y, si uno hace el bien espontáneamente, tanto mejor para él. Pero os conviene más ayunar. Si supierais... 

2:185
Sahih International
The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful.
Spanish
Es el mes de ramadán, en que fue revelado el Corán como dirección para los hombres y como pruebas claras de la Dirección y del Criterio. Y quien de vosotros esté presente ese mes, que ayune en él. Y quien esté enfermo o de viaje, un número igual de días. Alá quiere hacéroslo fácil y no difícil. ¡Completad el número señalado de días y ensalzad a Alá por haberos dirigido! Quizás, así seáis agradecidos.

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…

THE DOCTRINE OF ORIGINAL SIN

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…

Big Sur International Marathon 2018

"The Big Sur International Marathon is a point-to-point course run on scenic California Highway 1 from Big Sur to Carmel the last Sunday each April every year. Towering redwoods, crashing waves, coastal mountains and verdant pastures are featured on this bucket list course. The centerpiece of the course is the iconic Bixby Bridge, located at the halfway point of the race."









After visiting the area two years ago, I knew I wanted to return and after stumbling upon the fact that this beautiful place hosts a renowned marathon, I decided it would be perfect to incorporate the race into my return trip. Little did I realize, the race is extremely popular world-wide and spots go quickly. Just when I thought it was too late, I was fortunate enough to be selected to register in a last minute drawing. Since being selected, it was a major goal for me to complete this marathon along with my 51st birthday. AlhamduAllah (Thanks to Allah), I'm happy to say that I did it and it felt great!
