Back in Islam

A "Typical" American Police Supervisor Finds Islam

By William / 29 Aug 2013

My name is William, and I live in a large Midwestern city in the United States.

I am a typical American in many ways that are reflected in both my professional and personal lives. Professionally, I am a supervisor with a major police department, and I have been in the military, both active duty and in the reserves for the majority of my adult life.

Muslim of Scandinavian origin

By Abdul Wahid Pedersen / 21 Aug 2013

As a Muslim of Scandinavian origin I am often met with the question of why I became a Muslim. Yes, I even ask myself from time to time, why Allah had picked me, out of the multitude of people, and brought me to this blessed path of Islam.

When I look back upon my life, I can see that my present situation is a logical consequence of the sum of my acts and thoughts up to this point, but that, of course, is always the case for anybody. Thus my converting to Islam — or rather my accepting the fact that inwardly I have always been a Muslim — was inevitable.

Ramadan teaches us patience and obedience to Allah the Almighty

Source : Qul.org.au / 2 Aug 2013

The month-long fast of the month of Ramadan is nearing end and the Eid day is a week away. Eid Al-Fitr is the most important festival in the Islamic calendar (Muslim holiday). The day does not mark any historical event or episode; but its existence provides the Muslim for an occasion to offer thanks to Allah for having given him the strength and the will to observe fast during Ramadan.

 

Voluntary Fasts

By C. Mofty / 1 Aug 2013

The first thing to understand is the difference between what is known as fard and what is known as nafl.  Fard is obligatory, it is what Allah requires us to do, and leaving it is a sin and we will be held accountable for it.  An example is two rakah of Fajr prayer and the fasts of Ramadan.

 

My way to Islam

By Lamaan Ball / 26 Jul 2013

Some people who convert to Islam prefer to call it a reversion because everyone is born in a natural state of Islam – submission to the will of God – and rather than converting away from something they assert that coming to accept Islam is reverting to that human original state.

In my case this is doubly so.

A Hindu woman, Saumya, describes how she converted to Islam. Here is her story.

When the truth is revealed to you and you stand face to face with it, how long can you refuse to accept it? How long would you run away denying it?

Barmakid Family (600s-900s)

The Barmakids were a family of Buddhist administrators from the city of Balkh, in what is now Afghanistan.

They carried with them centuries of experience in the Persian Empire of how to manage large government bureaucracies, something the Arab Abbasid caliphs were ignorant of.
