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

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

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 .
 'THEY WANT TO EXTINGUISH THE LIGHT OF ALLAH WITH THEIR MOUTHS, BUT ALLAH REFUSES EXCEPT TO PERFECT HIS LIGHT, ALTHOUGH THE DISBELIEVERS DISLIKE IT.' AL-QUR'AN 9:32 4 | 3 Protector.' (Al-Qur'an 3:173)

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)

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…

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 …
