This essay addresses the welfare of animals farmed industrially for consumer markets, from the perspective of the Sacred Law.

Hasan al-Basri, may God have mercy upon him, was asked:
“Why do you appear unconcerned with what people say about you?”

He said, “When I was born I was born alone, when I shall die I will die alone, when I am placed in my grave I will be alone, and when I am taken to account before God I shall be alone. If I then enter the Fire it will be alone. And if I enter Paradise it will be alone. So what business do I have with people?”

Has the #Trump administration given thought to the following equation?

Moving the U.S. embassy to #Jerusalem = infringing on the rights of 1.7 billion people = creating 1.7 billion more enemies for #America.

After this, America’s politicians and intellectuals still ask the question “why do they hate us?”

This question has to be posed to all American administrations, past and present. How often have they spread hateful discourse because of the decisions they make? The callers to love and peace from different walks of life are left weak in trying to stop hateful discourse and treating it for future generations.

A person diagnosed with HIV/Aids is still a human. It is his/her right that we respect their humanity and refrain from thinking badly of them or questioning them on the cause of their diagnosis. It is more befitting for our humanity and our faith that we stand by them. The Prophet ﷺ said “Do not rejoice at the misfortune of your brother, lest God cure him and test you.”

HIV/Aids can be contracted through different means. There is no one single cause for its spread. We have no right to show contempt and disdain for anyone diagnosed with HIV, nor do we have any right to expose their diagnosis.

When a community’s internal conflicts are of a sectarian nature, the factions involved will only ever see defeat in the end.

Short-sighted, gullible religious figures do nothing to help these conflicts.

People who are blinded by their tribalism and thirst for vengeance do nothing to help these conflicts.

And people who trade their religion for a portion of the material world do nothing to help these conflicts.

“I do not see a big difference between someone who employs religion in furthering their political wishes and someone who employs ‘human rights’ in the same way. The latter gets more attention in our time, especially since the former consumed whatever deposits of religion were left in people.
However, both of them have played with a thing – religion – that should be above being played.
Both of them have been complicit in projecting images, narratives and ideas that were distortions of the real situation, and both of them are complicit in hurting humanity and harming the world.”
– Habib Ali al-Jifri

This was two days ago in Chechnya. Thousands of Chechen people, from government to religious to civilian, filled the streets of Grozny in a show of support and solidarity for the Rohingya.

The terror perpetrated against the Muslim #Rohingya of #Myanmar has reached levels of criminality that put the Muslim community and the nations of the world to shame. Their failure is the only explanation for this campaign of genocide to continue unabated.

The deafening silence surrounding this issue is but a manifestation of the hypocrisy of the both the civilised world and the Islamists and their political and human-rights proclamations.

Is the world waiting for the oppressed of Myanmar to be pushed to the brink and become terrorists, just as we witnessed in other countries from Palestine, Libya, Afghanistan, Somalia, Bosnia, Chechnya, Iraq, Syria to Yemen? Are they waiting for this to happen so the “Islamic” terrorism file can remain an exploitable factor in political scheming?

I make an appeal to everyone, and whatever is left of our humanity, to do what they can to help the Rohingya by donating to the UN Higher Commision on Refugees (UNHCR), educating people around you about the realities of the situation in Myanmar, and lastly, praying for them “And they have no one to relieve them except Allah.”

Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam. It is a journey that connects its rituals with profound meanings and gives them significance.

The tawaf is the circumambulation of a House built by Ibrahim and his son Ismail; the walking between Safa and Marwa replicates Hajar’s search for water for her infant child; the throwing of stones at the jamarat in Mina signifies the devil’s attempts to tempt Ibrahim away from sacrificing his son; and the ritual slaughter marks the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son for God.

Still, today, we have hearts that are unable to let go of sectarianism and cannot but drift behind the very people who ignite it.

Sectarianism is a tribulation that is triggered by blind-sighted extremists from all sects.

Politicians from across the political spectrum play this ugly game and yet they have no loyalty nor any sincere affiliation to any one sect. They employ sectarian rhetoric to fulfill their own political ends.

God, guide my people, for they do not know.

Note: thank you to whoever drew this very poignant picture

The imam recited the following verse this morning, “Who can be better in religion than one who surrenders his purpose to God while doing good” (al-Nisa:125), and my attention was caught by the connection of religious devotion to doing good— this is what we are in need of today.

May Allah grant us goodness in our intentions, words, and actions.


Praise be to Allah.

#فيديو: الاحتفالات تعم المدينة المقدسة بعد إزالة البوابات والجسور الحديدية عن مداخل الأقصى

القدس 27-7-2017 وفا- عمت أحياء مدينة القدس المحتلة وتحديدا منطقة باب الأسباط، فجر اليوم الخميس، أجواء من الفرح العارم بعد الانتصار الذي تحقق بفعل الصمود الأسطوري لشعبنا وقيادته وتحديهم للاحتلال وإجراءاته ورفضهم التعاطي مع كل ما فرضه بعد الرابع عشر من الشهر الجاري، هذا الصمود الذي أجبر الاحتلال على إزالة البوابات الالكترونية والجسور والبوابات الحديدية عن مداخل الأقصى.

واعتبر مقدسيون في أحاديث منفصلة مع تلفزيون فلسطين ما جرى انتصار للرئيس محمود عباس وللقيادة الفلسطينية التي اتخذت سلسلة من الإجراءات والقرارات، وجددت تأكيدها على تمسكها بالثوابت الوطنية بصلابة لا تلين وعلى رأسها العاصمة الأبدية القدس، كما اعتبرته انتصارا وجوديا للمقدسيين.

فيما اعتبر آخرون ما جرى رسالة للحكومة الإسرائيلية بأن المقدسات خطوط حمراء، وأنها بكل جبروتها لا تستطيع منع شعبنا ومصادرة حقه في العبادة وفي السيادة على مقدساته.

وأشادوا بالثبات وقة الإرادة والوحدة الميدانية للمقدسيين والكل الفلسطيني الذي انتفض في مختلف محافظات الوطن، واعتبروا ما جرى انتصار للشهداء والجرحى والأسرى.

وأطلقت الألعاب النارية وسط تكبيرات الله أكبر، فيما وزع مواطنون الحلوى ابتهاجا بالانتصار، وتحول المشهد من بكاء أمام بوابات الأقصى إلى احتفالات تعم المكان.

The instrumentalisation of religion for ideological ends is a problem that places us all in danger. We must confront it.
