Mufti Taqi Usmani, of the most famous scholars of the Urdu speaking world, and well-known across the globe, quietly standing in line to kiss the Black Stone, along with the rest of the crowds.

May Allah grant him and all scholars the humility that our religion asks of us!

Orderly queue at the Hajar Al Aswad.

Who thinks it should be like this all the time?

Muslims Defend the Sacred – Solidarity with Standing Rock

This letter of solidarity was signed by nearly 100 faith and community leaders from Muslim communities throughout the United States. We stand with you in your struggle to defend the sacred. We too know that water is life, as it says so clearly in the Qur’an,

In a Hadith by the Prophet (PBUH) narrated by ‘Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her), he said
“O people! The nations before you went astray because if a noble person committed theft, they used to leave him, but if a weak person among them committed theft, they used to inflict the legal punishment on him. “

“إن التحديات العالمية العابرة للأوطان و العابرة للثقافات تسائل مدى قدرتنا جميعا على إنتاج أخلاقيات كونية مشتركة قابلة للتطبيق، والتي يجب أن نعمل على تطبيقها على أرض الواقع؛ وهو ما كان يأمله اللاهوتي هانس كونج في مشروعه “الأخلاقيات العالمية”، تماشيا مع المبادرات العملية المتعلقة بحوار الأديان و التعاون المتبادل بين مختلف المذاهب و الأديان.”

To be honest, this is probably the event I’m most excited about. It is my favorite topic and I’ve never taught it in the UK before. It is a topic that inspires me and I’ve only taught it once in all my years of teaching, many years ago.
I look forward to meeting many of you there, InshaAllah…


Madame, Monsieur,

Suite a un post facebook de Mr Ramadan, je viens vous faire part d’une proposition :

Je propose de lancer une requête groupée à l’Arabie Saoudite demandant de permettre a chaque Musulmas effectuant le Hadj, de planter un arbre dans un terrain approprié en confiant au Royaume le soin de l’entretenir.

A l’Heure où l’Homme sait construire des pistes de ski dans le désert et envisage de coloniser Mars, un tel projet, que seuls les Musulmans dans l’Humilité, sans doute, peuvent entreprendre, permettrait probablement d’ouvrir une perspective intéressante et novatrice vers la fertilisation du Sahara.



Ya Allah.

Maya Angelou, 1928 – 2014

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.
