There’s a country in the Middle East building a wall around Palestinian refugees – and no, for once it’s not Israel, it’s Lebanon with collusion of Fatah! Unbelievable & shameful.

Lebanon’s wall of shame should be torn down

Twenty seven years ago this month, I was in Germany hacking away at a pile of twisted metal and concrete with thousands of others who were celebrating the demise of the world’s most infamous wall. Wee…

For those who wish to turn their lives around, it begins by focusing on and perfecting the salah. Once you put salah back as the priority—before school, work, fun, socializing, shopping, TV, ball games—only then can you turn your life around.
The irony of this truth is that many people are deceived into thinking that they need to first turn their life around, before they can start praying. This thinking is a dangerous trick of shaytan, who knows that it is salah itself which will provide the fuel and guidance necessary to turn our life around. It is like a driver whose car is on empty, but insists on finishing the journey before filling up on gas. That person won’t be going anywhere. And in the same way, such people end up in the same place for years: not praying, and not changing their lives.
Shaytan challenged them, and won.
In so doing, we have allowed him to steal from us what is priceless. Our homes and our cars are so precious to us, that we would never think to leave them unprotected. So we pay hundreds of dollars on security systems to keep them safe. And yet our hearts are left unprotected, to be stolen by the worst of thieves—a thief who has vowed God Himself to be our relentless enemy till the end of time. A thief who is not simply stealing some carved metal with a Mercedes symbol on it. A thief who is stealing our eternal soul and everlasting ticket to Paradise.

The Death of Shaykh Abdullah Mbwabwa of Zimbabwe.

“Indeed we belong to the Almighty and we shall all return to Him.”

This morning #Zimbabwe lost a great personality. He was a dedicated colleague, a religious tutor and one of the most effective daa’ees of the country.

I was fortunate to have made it just in time for the funeral prayers, having returned from an overseas lecture barely hours ago.

May Allah Almighty accept his good deeds, forgive his shortcomings and grant him a lofty rank in Paradise.

I will miss him and so will many others.
