Lies of Santa Claus

The Lie of Santa Claus

Al-hamdulillah, All praise be to Allah alone, for making us Muslims and bestowing us the Deen of Islam to distinguish right and wrong. The holiday season is upon us again, and the ugly head of Satan is rising again to inspire people to indulge in innovation and shirk. Christians Lying About Santa Claus Sheikh Yusuf Estes deals out a few home truths about Christians, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Bible.

Jesus Prophet of Islam

Quran: Read about Prophet Jesus before you think to burn it!

The Fast of Ramadan in the Bible and the Qur’an

BY SHIBLI ZAMAN | SOURCE : SUHAIBWEBB A philological exegesis of verse 2:183 of the Qur’an. When one hears of fasting in the context of religious observance it could be said with little argument that the first thing to pop into one’s mind would be Islam. There is no question that our dear friends from the Christians and the Jews observe fasting to varying degrees. Yet, the rigorous fasting of Ramadan has made Muslims identifiable as those who enjoin fasting as a pillar of their faith. When fasting was first ordained upon the Muslims, God revealed the following words of the Qur’an: “O you who believe! Fasting has been ordained upon Read more ...

An Aspect of the Quran’s Miraculous Nature

An Aspect of the Quran's Miraculous Nature Dr. Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips For a scripture to qualify as divinely revealed it must be totally accurate in its descriptions of reality: the past, the present and the future. The Quran has many stories about previous prophets and their peoples. Some of these stories have elements in them that can be checked out for their accuracy. One example of the Quran's precision in its historical descriptions is in the story of Prophet Yusuf (Joseph), who was sold as a slave in Egypt, but rose to become an important official in the government, which made it possible for him to bring his whole family to live there in honor. Most Read more ...

Honourable in Allah’s Sight : Prophet Musa (Moses) (AS)

Prophet Musa (Moses) (alaihis salaam) & Prophet Harun (Aaron) (alaihis salaam)   The pharaoh who ruled Egypt was a tyrant who oppressed the descendants of Jacob (pbuh), known as the children of Israel (Bani Israel). He used every means to demean and disgrace them. They were kept in bondage and forced to work for him for small wages or nothing.

The pharaoh wanted the people to obey him only, and to believe in the gods of his invention. Perhaps, during that time, there were many classes of people Read more ...

The Rival to the Bible

Roger Bolton from the BBC News Magazine on the BBC website writes this article. Here is an excerpt : For those who believe the Bible is the inerrant, unaltered word of God, there will be some very uncomfortable questions to answer. It shows there have been thousands of alterations to today’s bible. The Codex, probably the oldest Bible we have, also has books which are missing from the Authorised Version that most Christians are familiar with today - and it does not have crucial verses relating to the Resurrection. “When people ask me if the Bible is the word of God I answer ‘which Bible?’”   Read more ...
