Woe to those who defraud in Measure and Weight

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. "Woe to Al-Mutaffifin. Those who, when they have to receive by measure from men, demand full measure, And when they have to give by measure or weight to men, give less than due. Do they not think that they will be resurrected, On a Great Day, The Day when (all) mankind will stand before the Lord of all that exists." [Surah Al-Mutaffifin, 83:1-6] Increasing and decreasing in the Measure and Weight will be a Cause for Regret and Loss An-Nasa'i and Ibn Majah both recorded from Ibn 'Abbas that he said, "When the Prophet came to Al-Madinah, the people of Al-Madinah were the most terrible people Read more ...

The Tyranny of the Rulers is Not a Reason for Rebellion

The goal of the Jihadist sects is one and the same: rebellion against those in authority and a desire to rule over the Muslim lands. They may alter their names and titles but their ideology remains the same. Islam itself, despite what these sects assert, forbids open censure and rebellion against even the most wicked and tyrannical of Muslim rulers. The Prophet of Allaah (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam), upon whose statements and actions we establish our religion, stated in an authentic tradition: “There will appear after me rulers, they will not guide by my guidance, and they will not establish my Sunnah; there will be amongst them men whose hearts will Read more ...

Salafi Manhaj

What is Salafi Manhaj?

The Salafi Manhaj - Our Da'wah, Our Call 1.  We call, first and foremost, to the worship of Allaah alone, without associating partners with Him. This was the starting point of the call of the Messengers (alayhumus salaam), just as Allaah has stated: "We sent a messenger to every nation proclaiming: Worship Allaah alone and leave the worship of the false deities." So this call to the worship of Allaah alone is coupled with the negation of the worship of anything besides Him. 2.  We believe that our Religion calls to many essentials, so we call to the most essential affair, followed by that which is next in importance, in accordance to the Quranic Read more ...

Confessions: Tales of Savagery by the Israeli Military

By Hasan Afif El-Hasan | Source: PalestineChronicle For outsiders, it is hard to sense the real character of Israel through all the artificial identity that has been imposed on it by its supporters without serious discussion about the Palestinians’ tragedy. Israel has imposed and tightened the harshest blockade and the brutal assaults and incursions on top of accumulated injustices against the Palestinian refugees in Gaza where thousands of civilians including children perished and many were injured, while the survivors are starved and their homes destroyed. Israel builds settlements on confiscated Palestinian lands in the West Bank and Jerusalem, enacted Read more ...

The Rights of Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him)

The Rights of Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) is the greatest right of any of the creation. None of the creation have a right greater than the rights of Allah's Messenger sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam.

Israel Lambasts John Kerry for ‘Amplifying’ Boycott

Poor US Secretary of State John Kerry. He tries to defend Israel, even to save Israel; he tries to legitimize its illegal occupation and have the Palestinians accept their dispossession, and in return he is lambasted by Israel’s politicians as “an amplifier” of “anti-Semitic boycotts.” John Kerry, who has been engaged since the summer in trying to resurrect the long moribund Israeli-Palestinian peace process, is due to present his proposed framework agreement to both sides in the coming week. If reports are to be believed, the framework agreement gives much more to Israel than is either morally or legally justified. Indeed if it corresponds Read more ...

Islamic Guidance: Husband and Wife Relationship

Islam is not merely a religion that asks to you worship and get closer to God. The religion guides humankind in each and every aspect of life. It is a way of life that is not limited to your relation with God, but also tells you how you should go about with other people, be it your parents, or your siblings, or friends and neighbors or your children or even your spouse. Before the advent of Islam, ignorance and wilderness were spread everywhere. Women had no rights neither as sisters, nor as daughters and not even as wives. The religion of Islam came and elevated the position of women. Where it laid down a few rules and principles, it also laid down Read more ...

And His Cries Went Unheard : Husband Abuse Unveiled

Written By : Umm Zakiyyah “I DON'T care who’s listening,” the sister spoke angrily into her friend’s phone, prompting the other sisters in the room to look in her direction, concerned expressions on their faces as they halted their own chatter amongst themselves. “I have somewhere to go, Abdullah.  I’m tired of this—“ There was the muffled sound of a man’s voice coming through the receiver. “No, no, I’m not going to be patient.  You are so irresponsible.  I can’t depend on you for anything.  I swear!” More muffled sounds. “You are such a stup—” The sister stopped mid-syllable as the phone line Read more ...
