The True Spirit of Jihad

Source: Muslim.org / 12 Mar 2013 

“The believers are those only who believe in Allah and His Messenger, then they doubt not, and struggle hard with their wealth and their lives in the way of Allah. Such are the truthful ones.”(Al-Hujurat 49:15)

Jihad is an Islamic institution that is widely misunderstood. The non-Muslims fearfully regard it as an Islamic practice that aims to wage ‘Holy War’ against all disbelievers, to convert them to Islam or to kill them. To the common western mind, the word ‘Jihad’ is synonymous with ‘terrorism’ and Islam is a ‘militant’ religion.

 

What does Islam say about "mothers"?

By Ansar Al-'Adl / 12 Mar 2013

This is one of the most convincing things about Islam - the treatment of women in general and especially the high position mothers hold in Islam.

Amongst the clearest examples of Islam's honoring women is the great status of the mother in Islam. Islam commands kindness, respect and obedience to parents and specifically emphasizes and gives preference to the mother as shall be shown in this article. Islam raises parents to a status greater than that found in any other religion or ideology.

 

The Kaba – the Sacred House of Allah

By Aisha Stacey / 12 Mar 2013

The Kaba  is the sacred House of Allah situated in the middle of the Holy mosque in the city of Mecca, in Saudi Arabia.  The black cube shaped box is familiar to people of all faiths due to the images that come out of Saudi Arabia every year at pilgrimage time. Usually when people see these images, their attention is focused on the black box being circled by hundreds if not thousands of worshippers.  This box is the Kaba.

“Allah has made the Kaba, the Sacred House, an asylum of security, Hajj, and 'Umrah (pilgrimage) for mankind...”(Quran 5:97)

 

Islam, Prophets and Mosques

By Dr. Spahic Omer / 12 Mar 2013

Islam is the truth which Allah made man's permanent companion on the earth as soon as he was sent to it, on account of that truth being meant for him. Numerous prophets from different epochs and in different geographical settings were chosen to perform the task of conveying and explaining the truth of Islam to people. The long process commenced with Adam, the first man and prophet on earth, and came to an end with Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), the seal of prophets, after humankind had reached a point where a final, universal, eternal, and all-inclusive divine message was possible.

 

Islam: The True Emancipator of Women

By Mary C. Ali and Anjum Ali / 11 Mar 2013

The Qur'an and the Sunnah of Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) are the sources from which every Muslim woman derives her rights and duties. Today people think that women are liberated in the West and that the women's liberation movement began in the twentieth century. Actually, the women's liberation movement was not begun by women; it was revealed by Allah to the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) in the seventh century.

Life and the Last Day

By Muhammad Abdel Haleem / 9 Mar 2013

In the Qur'an life in this world is an inseparable part of a continuum, a unified whole - life, death, life - which gives our life a context and relevance. In this context, the life of the individual is made meaningful and enriched inasmuch as it is full of 'good works'. Life in this world leads to the afterlife, a belief which is fundamental in the Qur'an. The afterlife is not treated in the Qur'an in a separate chapter, or as something on its own, for its own sake, but always in relation to life in this world.

INTRODUCTION

Ever since the dawn of mankind, we have sought to understand nature and our place in it. In this quest for our purpose of life many people have turned to religion. Most religions are based on books claimed by their followers to be divinely inspired, without any proof.  Islam is different because it is based upon reason and proof.
