Wow Everton Football Club, hats off welldone!

They’ve raised enough money to buy a house for young, homeless people to take shelter in.

Q: What proof is there for a life after death?

Allah (SWT) and our dear Prophet (PBUH) have each told us numerous times about the hereafter. The Day of Judgement is a day us Muslims believe in where all of our deeds will be taken into account and based on them we will either enter paradise or the hell fire. What proofs do we have to prove there is a life after death? What has Allah (SWT) given us as a proof in regards to this?

I go into further details and answer the question in my video below.

Asalaam Alaykum my brothers and sisters. In times of great trials and tribulations we need to seek out good news stories and promote them. By doing this we can change the narrative from anti to pro Muslim/Islam. I am looking for your positive stories. Send them to me and let’s make them viral together. Jazzak Allahu khairun

Allah SWT says: “The faithful are but brothers…” – [Qur’an 49: 10]


With the Independence Day approaching soon, I decided to make this quick response for my fellow Pakistanis (and Indians, by extension) who seem to be uploading flags of their respective countries, talking about the courage of the soldiers who died fighting for its nation.

1) Nationalism (Assabiyyah – in Arabic) is a disease.

The only thing that ties us all together is Aqeedah and Emaan. That is, the belief in one Creator ( Allah SWT) and His last and final messenger being the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

Allah SWT says: “The faithful are but brothers…” – [Qur’an 49: 10]

Allah SWT did not mention all Pakistanis to be brothers, or all Indians to be brothers, or all Chinese to be brothers, and so on and so forth. Rather, all believers.

2) Any solider who dies fighting with the intention of raising the status of his/her respective nation, instead of fighting with the intention of raising the word of Allah SWT, is most likely not a Muslim, let alone a ‘shaheed’. The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said this, not me.

“He is not one of us who calls for ‘asabiyyah, (nationalism) or who fights for ‘asabiyyah or who dies for ‘asabiyyah.” – [Source: Abu Dawud]

In summary, I give you a message from Allah SWT:

“O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared and die not except in a state of Islam. And hold fast together all of you to the rope of Allah, and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude Allah’s favours on you; for you were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace you became brothers; and you were on the brink of the pit of fire, and He saved you from it. Thus Allah makes His signs clear to you that you may be guided.” – [Qur’an 3: 102-103]

And Allah SWT knows best.

In 2008, we had to come together in New Orleans to repudiate David Duke’s boys burning crosses on black families lawns. In 2017, he has a President he’s proud of. This is unbelievable.


White supremacists are already coming out to proclaim how much they love the off-script press conference that Donald Trump just gave.

Listen – it was the clearest embrace of bigotry and white supremacy from a President I have ever seen with my own eyes. No American President in generations has ever embraced it like Trump just did in this press conference.

It was one of the most disturbing moments of his presidency.

As the Mayors of Lexington and Baltimore unambiguously called for removal of the confederate statues, we seek nothing less from our Mayor. It can only be a discussion of how to move forward, not if we should. So long as we recognize that these idols of white supremacy were erected and continue to serve as symbols of hate, there is no place for them in a society that aspires to be loving and just. I’m hopeful that the city council will move forward with this next month. In the mean time, keep up the calls and rallies.

“Donald Trump has been a racist all his life – and he isn’t going to change after Charlottesville” – my latest Intercept column for you to read and share

Donald Trump Has Been a Racist All His Life — And He Isn’t Going to Change After Charlottesville

Much of the media has overlooked the fact that Trump doesn’t like being forced to denounce racism for the very simple reason that he himself is, and always has been, a racist.


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
