Sisters

I have been leading tours to Masjid al-Aqsa for a few years now. Not only is Aqsa one of the holiest and historic sites in the world, our Palestinian brothers and sisters need to see that the rest of the world has not forgotten them.

Our trips to Jerusalem are always iman-boosting; and we see first hand the political and economic and social difficulties of that region.

If you are able to join me for my next trip, in the first week of January 2018, please register ASAP at www.darelsalam.com/yq. (Only a few spots left….)

If you are not able to come on this trip, please do try to go at least once in your life if you are able to do so.

PS. The Umrah package in the last weak of Dec is sold out, but if you wish to do umrah as well, register and if any spots open up you will be contacted.

A powerful webinar hosted by Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research for sisters by sisters, featuring Dalia Mogahed, Hosai Mojaddidi, Amina Darwish, and Ieasha Prime. This will be moderated by Yaqeen fellows Tesneem AlKiek, and Nour Soubani.

This is a must attend! Sign up at hijab.yaqeeninstitute.org What exactly is hijab and why do Muslim women wear it? Is it culturally relevant? What do Islamic texts really say about it? How do we respond to attacks on hijab? Does it make me less of a Muslim if I don’t wear hijab? I’m not perfect and I feel like I misrepresent Islam when I wear hijab. Should I take it off?

We don’t get hijab, and that’s okay. It’s a hard thing for people to wrap (no pun intended) their minds around in this day and age. Our present religious, political, social, and cultural situation brings a lot of good to the conversation of hijab, but it also brings a lot of challenges with it that can be confusing and hard to navigate.

It also brings a significant burden of representation on any Muslim woman who wears the hijab. Being at the intersection of Islamophobia, xenophobia, misogyny, commodification of hijab, and policing of women’s bodies, choosing to wear hijab has become more than just a personal or spiritual choice…it’s now a heavily politicized act.

It’s like being stuck between a rock and a hard place. With this webinar, our goal is not only to create a safe space for women to voice their concerns and questions regarding hijab, but also to provide answers and perspective on a holistic level relevant to our society today.

Are we aware of what’s happening, As we speak amongst a Muslim Minority, called The Rohingya, in the land of Burma/Myanmar, Where our own brothers and sisters have been suffering for a while now?

In this Khutbah, Shaykh Dr Yasir Qadhi provides some background knowledge as we need to know who they are and what’s going on, as we cannot help unless we understand their situation.He leaves us with some advice on how we can help those suffering.

Who are The Rohingya?
The Rohingya, they are one of the smallest ethnicities, who are predominantly Muslims. They are a descendants of a civilization that used to have a Kingdom over 500 years ago. Some of them converted to Islam while the majority didn’t. Those who converted are called The Rohingya.

الحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

السلام عليكم

I want to first thank those persons who have seen through the falseness of these allegations. Some individuals, unfortunately, have taken it upon themselves to pull matters out of my personal life, take them out of context, manipulate the facts and present a narrative using these distortions to fulfill their own agenda. It left a lot to the imagination so let me first state that I testify without hesitation or doubt that I have never used my public platform as a means to take advantage of anyone.

They also use the generic words ‘inappropriate interactions’ leading the imagination of a reader down the worst possible path. This itself is a grievous sin. The word used for slander is (ramy) in the Qur’an. It literally means to cast a stone. The crime isn’t that you come outright explicitly and say against someone that they’ve committed inappropriate acts. The crime is that you cast something in that direction and let the ripples carry their effect. This is what these people have done.

I have been speaking about the Book of Allah for nearly 20 years for one single motivation; I love this book and I love sharing what I learn about it. I have interacted with hundreds of thousands of individuals, men and women, young and old, around the world in person and done so with dignity. I would hope and pray that the countless people I did interact with in person of either gender will testify to the way I conducted myself with them, hoping for nothing more but a chance to earn their prayers. That’s where I have the most meaningful exchanges with the community. That is when people share their concerns and questions with me and there isn’t anything inappropriate about it. I’m sure the countless people that have been part of these exchanges will testify to that fact. I’d like to add that I’ve had female students at my own campus for years and no student ever has or ever will claim that I’ve been inappropriate in the least bit.

We all have things we have to repent for. I’m not a counselor and I’ve never claimed to be. I’m not an Imam and I’ve never claimed to be. I’m an avid and passionate student, teacher and lecturer with a focus on Allah’s book. I find it demeaning to have to speak about my personal life. I feel at some level though I don’t have a choice. I have been divorced for nearly two years. The circumstances of my divorce are one of the most difficult and painful experiences of my life. Many rumors surrounded that event and I chose to remain silent to protect my children more than anyone else. After the passage of some time I did in fact pursue remarriage with the help of my family. Along that process I communicated with a few prospects with my family’s knowledge and consent and that has been used, distorted and manipulated way out of proportion and turned into something it isn’t. All such communications took place between consenting adults and there was nothing malicious or predatory about them. I fail to see how such interaction can render anyone a victim. These communications took place for a dignified purpose. Yet these are the communications that are being alleged as predatory.

But when some individuals try to make it sound like one has to repent before Allah in a way that satisfies their delusional sense of self-righteousness, there’s a problem. Your taubah, for anything you may have done is between you and your Maker. As many in the community have said, if my actions are in fact a threat to the community, show evidence of that.

Lies are best told with a grain of truth. The people who accused me are not interested in clarification nor in rectifying the matter. They came to me with their minds made up. Their allegations as they have now themselves outlined, I explicitly reject and deny. I have been blackmailed, threatened, harassed and warned that if I was to give a single sermon, talk about a single ayah, post a single new video about the Qur’an or Islam, that they will go on a campaign to ensure I am painted as some sort of threat to the Muslim community.

My mission and sacrifice for two decades has been to help spread a better understanding of the Qur’an. With these threats, I was terrified at first that those years of service will be brought to ruin even if later these claims are proven false. Everyone’s attention will be on this non-sense and not the work and contribution that actually matters.

I deliberately avoided any public engagement for months thought their demands were that it stay the case for years. But recently evidence was discovered, only and only by the grace of Allah, that this was all part of a scheme. My employees discovered loads of explicit illegal activity that some of these individuals were involved in knowingly and others were just along for the ride at the expense of myself and my company. I decided to get legal help and protect my family, my employees, myself, and my work from them. I found evidence of explicit lying and deliberate exaggerations.

Some of these individuals have used the word ‘verified’ to give credibility to their claims. Just because a number of people are ‘verifying’ something, doesn’t make it true. If that was the case, the accusation against our mother Aisha (RA) was circling the entire city of Madinah.

As for the ‘agreement’ that these individuals speak of that I’m no longer abiding by, perhaps I can offer some context. I tried to convince this group to allow for senior scholars and leaders from across the country to hear both sides and assist in civil fashion. They knew the presence of neutral parties would compromise their agenda so they threatened to not meet at all if anyone from the outside was allowed.

Deeply concerned that my whole life work will come to ruin, I was abiding by their demand to not speak in public or teach, I discovered that they continued to disparage me in the most vile of ways. While I was in Mecca for Umrah, they held public gatherings attempting to rip my character to shreds allowing me no opportunity to even defend myself. These people stand up for the rights of the community and want to protect the ummah? Where is Islam in the way they are conducting themselves in this case? I even met members of the community that attended and were disgusted by these gatherings.

They furthermore explicitly lied in writing to heads of organizations saying that I’ve been banned from speaking at major conventions. I spoke to the heads of those conventions asking them if that was the case and their lies were laid bare. One of this accusing group admitted to me multiple times and even in the presence of others that he was blackmailed to take part in this witch hunt. That if he didn’t they’d accuse him of colluding with me in some way.

The individual who posted these claims against me posed himself as a mediator and unfortunately he was anything but. He claims I’ve known him for twenty years. I’ve spoken to him in friendly ways no more than a couple of dozen times in that entire span. We don’t live in the same city. I’m cordial with him and until this disappointing turn of events, I know little to nothing about his family and he knows virtually nothing about mine. To claim he’s my friend of 20 years to insinuate that he knows my personal life is really far from the truth. A mediator isn’t supposed to be an instigator. Unfortunately in this post, I see nothing more than an attempt to seek the limelight through scandal. There have been sincere efforts by elders in the community and neutral parties to resolve these claims in a dignified fashion and his irresponsible and grossly inaccurate post did nothing more than to try and derail that process.

I appreciate the outpouring of support. You cannot imagine the pain and humiliation this has caused me and my family. I have sons and daughters, I have sisters and nieces. This public stunt could potentially traumatize them for the rest of their lives. Produce witnesses of explicit haram that one has committed and if not, then
فأولآءك عند الله هم الكاذبون
they, as far as Allah is concerned, are the liars.

Dignity is in the hands of Allah. I cannot control what anyone will think of me. The most noble people of the past had to face some of the worst humiliations imaginable. My mistakes, and Allah knows them just as He knows yours, I make taubah for as I have been.
To those that have chosen to try to tear my character to shreds before the eyes of millions, I suppose I’ll be thanking you on judgment day for taking the burden of my sins from me. What you have done is far worse in our religion than anything you could possibly have accused me of.
To my audience, I simply say this. I am a public figure and I have a personal life. I am imperfect. Like anyone, my personal life and its struggles are mine to bear. I don’t post daily updates of what I do with my kids or what dua my mom made for me or where I prayed fajr. I don’t need to prove that I’m a great dad or son or anything else. That is my personal life. I’ve never made it the stuff of social media except if I wanted to share some insight. My public life has to do with teaching Allah’s book. Sharing what inspires me, I will continue to do that. My solemn promise to you is that whether online or at some location that you might find me speaking, I will carry myself with the same dignity I always have and I will do my best to live these few breaths I have left on this earth trying to serve the book of Allah in a way that He may find pleasing.

I know why I do this and I know why Allah put a love in the hearts of people for my work. Its not because I’m a great speaker or scholar (I’m not a scholar and have never claimed to be), but its always been one thing; sincerity. If I’ve lost that I’ve lost everything. I’m going to continue to be who I am and will no longer entertain these claims and allegations because I have more important things to do with my life. I’m done being bullied and harassed.

Lastly to Allah, I declare that I am your imperfect slave who seeks forgiveness for sins known and unknown to myself and others. I know that You have honored me in this life in great part because of the du’as of my parents, those that I have sincerely tried to do good towards and benefit, my students and audience, and because I have tried to serve Your book. Your promise is that
ولن تجد من دونه ملتحدا

“You will not find a refuge besides It (the book).” So I turn to You as your beaten, humbled slave and beg You. Allow me to serve Your book and make that service a source of protection for me and any who come to it with genuine hearts. If I have Your protection YaRabb, I need nothing else.
I have not taken the sacred platform to teach the Qur’an and used it for lowly aims. Allah knows who I am and I am grateful to Him and to you for your du’as and support in this difficult time. I don’t wish this kind of onslaught on anyone, not even against those that are responsible for it against me.

I would rather not speak about this again as it is a distraction from Allah’s book that is much more worthy of being spoken about.

Thanks for reading.
Your fellow believer,
Nouman Ali Khan

Imam al-Shafi’i (d. 204 AH) said, “I never raised anyone above his level except that it resulted in me degrading myself by an equal amount.” Meaning: I never considered someone more intelligence or noble than he really was except that it resulted in me decreasing my own worth and intelligence in proportion to how much I over exaggerated in the first place.

As Allah is my witness, and I swear by the One who created the Heavens and Earths, it truly saddens me to meet or receive emails from people who consider me to be far more than I truly am. They raise me degrees and ranks, in leaps and bounds, exponentially more than what I deserve, and while in their eyes I might be of the greatest scholars of Islam of our age, Allah knows my sins, the large of them and the small of them, the public of them and the private of them, and clearly I am not worthy of even a fraction of that estimation.

It is a mistake of the highest magnitude to raise me and other preachers to the level of the true inheritors of the Prophet (SAW). At most, we are but faint lights who, in a world of pitch and utter darkness, are presumed to be like the stars, but that is because the bystander has never seen a real star, much less the Sun, and hence presumes the flicker that we might emit here and there to be as bright as those emitted by the stars.

And if – God forbid, and we seek refuge in Allah the Sittīr from this ever happening – my sins, or some of them, of the large and small ones, and the public and private ones, were to be made known to you, what would happen?

Of course if some of these sins involved the rights of others, and people needed to be protected from me and my evils, it is understandable and Islamic that these sins be publicized. And if these sins were personal and did not involve the rights of others, we would be able to criticize the one who did make these sins public; but even in that case, I know my faults and sins, and before criticizing anyone who exposed them, I should blame myself and seek repentance for my own faults in front of Allah.

But let us return to the question. What would happen if my ‘fans’ and ‘admirers’ really discovered my true nature? For sure, they would lose respect in me, and they have every right to do that. Many would feel betrayed and angry, hurt and confused.

Yet, in this whirlwind of emotions, ask yourself: does my evil change the Quran and Sunnah? Does my status alter the basics of theology – basics that I myself might have preached and taught these people? Do my own sins in any way diminish the glory or tarnish the mesmerizing beauty of the life and Sīrah of the greatest human who ever lived (SAW)?

May Allah conceal and forgive my faults, dear brothers and sisters, but if you ever discover my sins, feel free to cut me back down to my true level, as you should have done from day one. I give you full license to be angry at me, disgusted with me, boycott me if I so deserve.

But whatever you do – whatever you do – I implore you, for the sake of your Creator, that you do not lost faith in Him, because your faith in Him should never have been linked with me or any preacher. I beg you, even as you leave me never wishing to see me again, to never waver in your commitment to Islam, or in your love for the one true example of humanity that all of us should idealize and learn from, the Raḥmat lil-alamīn and the Leader of the Children of Adam. I ask that you do not take my mistakes as a battering rod to hurl against other preachers and teachers, the majority of whom are more pious than I am. I request that you understand that my lectures and books that you benefitted from are still worthy of benefit insha Allah, because even if I am sinful and have fallen short, what I taught you that was correct was from the Sacred Texts and our blessed tradition. If the vessel that carried it (i.e., myself) was flawed, the message that was carried from the Quran and Sunnah was not. And all that moved you from my lectures before you heard of my sins: that was due to Allah’s blessings to have used me as an imperfect vessel to convey the message to you, and nothing in that has changed now that you have discovered the flaws of the vessel.

Lastly, and may Allah conceal and forgive my sins, if you do come to find out of my sins that Allah had hitherto kept from the eyes of others, please, even as you feel angry and betrayed, spare a prayer for all sinners, include myself, for it is sinners who most need Allah’s mercy and forgiveness. And if you hear that my sins involve the rights of others, pray for them as well, and stand with them against me if you are in a position to do so, until their rights have been returned.

PS. If you are confused by this post, please do no read into it, and realize that it is generic and of benefit to all insha Allah (and no, it does not deal with me even though I meant every word of what I wrote).
There is no need to mention people or names, and remember
من حسن إسلام المرء تركه ما لا يعنيه
There is little benefit in the average person reading up on the scandals that I or any other person might have been involved with. If for some reason you do have a legitimize need to know, find out only enough that will suffice your need, then move on to more productive matters.
My sins, and the sins of others, will not harm you on Judgment Day. But your sensationalizing those sins, and spreading gossip about them, and making them the subject of your meeting places and gatherings may very well cause you distress on Judgment Day, so beware.

Forgotten Heroes 14-19 Foundation – Anglia Tours

Anglia Tours is delighted to offer a breath-taking, thought-provoking journey through the battlefields of France focusing on The Muslim Experience in World War One. This fully-guided, two-day educational tour is the concept of the Forgotten Heroes 14-19 Foundation, working in collaboration with Angl…

“Who will take us?” You have brothers and sisters around the world who wish they could take you in. You are not despised. You have a right to be heard. You have a right to live in peace.

To everyone out there, find the refugees that live in your area and tell them you love them. You’d be surprised how many Rohingya already reside in your city. Organize rallies, call your representatives, donate to charity, and pray for them.

‘Who will take us?’: Myanmar’s fleeing Rohingya Muslims

Forced out of their home country, Rohingya Muslims share their experiences of crossing to Bangladesh.

Even as I am visiting the blessed city of Madinah, my heart cannot find peace as I hear of all that is happening to our Rohingya brothers and sisters in Myanmar.

Over 100,000 have been impacted in the last few years by the state-sponsored persecutions against them. In the last few days, Burmese militia and military, loyal to the ‘Peace Prize laureate’ Aung San Suu Kyi, and with the blessings of radical Buddhist preachers, have massacred at least 3000 men, women and children. The images that are coming out of that region – scant as they are – are simply too horrifying to share.

In all of this:

– where is the media, that always jumps on any terrorist attack and highlights any violence when it suits their interest. Here we have a full-fledged state-sponsored massacre of an entire population, and yet most mainstream news agencies barely manage to report a few paragraphs of this in some deep section of their pages.

– where are the world leaders, who love to intervene when it suits their interests, and send armies to ‘liberate’ peoples under tyrannical regimes? (And the one Muslim land that they are fleeing to is denying them entry and kicking them out!)

– where are the Muslim countries, who love to pick fights with one another, and boycott one another, and go to war with one another, even as their fellow Muslims are being slaughtered so mercilessly?

And even as we lament what others are not doing, let us do whatever we can to help out. Make dua for them, be conscious of their plight, help out charities that are helping them, and spread awareness of their cause.

The UN itself has declared the Rohingya as one of the most persecuted and impoverished people in the world.

O Allah! We complain to you of the weakness of our state, and the incapacities of our efforts. You and You alone are the Lord of the weak and persecuted, so help them. You are the One who hears the plea of the distressed, so answer them. You are the One who deals with tyrants and transgressors, so call them to your justice and reckoning.

Ameen!

What is the value of these trips? All of us are volunteers. None of us were paid a cent by Helping Hand to be out here. The fact that these youth decided to take from their summer vacations to be here is so admirable. This is my 3rd time volunteering with Helping Hand, and seeing the way that these young people leave transformed every time is a true thing of beauty. They don’t just leave with new perspectives on the refugee crisis, but with new perspectives on life in general. There are many times that the groups get overwhelmed and need an hour long crying session before they can get back to work. But every one of them would tell you that these trips are absolutely worth it. I’ve noticed a fascination with traveling to great historical sites around the world, which is a positive thing as we need to connect to our history. But lets also connect to our present.

Humanitarian trips make us more human. Support organizations like Helping Hand for Relief And Development, Islamic Relief USA, Shaam Relief, etc. that are doing great work here and beyond. Expose yourselves and your families to these beautiful stranded human beings around the world. Spend your next vacation with people who could only wish to have a home like you.

Look out for some trips to Kenya and Mali next year. Congratulations to the young brothers and sisters that took part this year!

Now off to Madinah insha’Allah.


Because people with disabilities deserve access to the house of their Lord too! This is a dream come true.

I am very sad tonight, when those that hate Us decide to launch a campaign to write against #Islam and #Muslims they get their support and their books hits the best seller lists. See (Tommy Robinson but don’t promote his sad book) When a counter campaign is launched to show the truth about Muslim contributions in #Europe you don’t even share the post let alone donate. We are indeed huge in numbers but ineffective, and our love for this world has over powered our desire for the hereafter. May Allah wake us up before our end. Ameen.

1. Pray for our salvation. Make Duaa for this ummah.

People who constantly criticize others typically do so because of a fault that they themselves have. This becomes even worse when it is not one person who is being criticized, but rather the entire group of ‘scholars’ or ‘preachers’ of Islam.

There is no doubt that scholars and preachers are at times worthy of criticism. But that criticism should come from those qualified to make it. It has become vogue in some quarters, even amongst self-professed religious folks, to bash preachers under the guise of somehow protecting the religion. But at times it is impossible to fully know the recesses of one’s own heart, and to be absolutely certain that the intention one has is purely for the sake of Allah. Abdullah b. al-Mubārak said, “The one who makes fun of scholars has lost his religion.” The class of people who have dedicated their lives to studying the tradition cannot, en masse, be made fun of or criticized without directly attacking the tradition that these people have studied. (Obviously I speak of a general, unconditional criticism directed to all scholars or preachers – it is a different matter when a qualified person points out a mistake or flaw in one particular scholar).

It is, therefore, best and wisest that one concentrates on one’s own faults, and leaves the faults of others.

Malik b. Dīnār said, “How evil is it when one is oneself not pious, and still makes fun of the pious!” And Ibn Sirīn said, “We used to say that the one who has the most faults is he who busies himself with pointing out the faults of others.”

There is no doubt that each and every one of us, scholars and preachers and all Muslims and humans – and I put myself first on that list – is worthy of criticism for certain aspects of our lives. But to call out an entire class of people, and especially the scholars of Islam, and label them with derogatory adjectives because of the mistakes of a few, is simply not in conformity with the basic etiquettes of Islam.

Abdullah b. Umar said, “There were people in Madinah who had faults, but they covered their sins and didn’t speak about the faults of others, so Allah covered up their sins, and they died as if they were without sin! And there were those who had faults, but they busied themselves with the faults of others, so Allah exposed their own sins for all to see, and they died humiliated.”

Be careful, sisters and brothers, and busy yourself with your own faults rather than the faults of others, especially when it is possible those whom you mock are people who are more God-conscious than you.

One of the blessings of starting Muhsen was the exposure to so many beautiful differently abled brothers and sisters. This past weekend, I had the blessing of giving a lecture to an entire room of mostly deaf brothers and sisters. I was so proud of the work they were doing out in Minnesota masha’Allah.













#GlobalImpactDay – Project 3
Lunch and Story time with Minnesota Deaf Muslim Community (MDMC )
July 15 2017

Impact volunteers practiced ASL (American Sign Language) for months to prepare for this event. The volunteers practiced few Islamic lectures in ASL to present to MDMC guests.
The volunteers beautifully presented their pieces in ASL followed by a delicious lunch. The experience was awesome. For the first time there was not much noise coming from a gathering and all you could see hands signing and expressive face gestures.
The goal is to bridge that gap between deaf Citizens and the rest of the community.
In sha Allah we hope to use this GID event as a kick off to something that we will continue on a regular basis and present our AlMaghrib lectures in ASL and to be able to communicate with our r brothers and sisters regardless of difference in the ability.

What an impactful learning and networking experience!
Alhamdulillah
The treat at the end was a surprise visit by our beloved teacher Sh Omar Suleiman

Special thanks to Sr @valerie shirley of MDMC Minnesota Deaf Muslim Community -MDMC who worked hard and spent weeks and weeks with Impact volunteers to teach ASL so the volunteers can execute this project successfully!

It’s been 1 year since this happened and this weekend will be filled with memorials and tributes. These were my thoughts immediately after the shooting but I’m not sure they were fully developed then. Truthfully, I was numb. I will never forget the gunshots and the sights of that night. But we have to remain committed to ending the violence and injustices that keep robbing families of their loved ones.


Minutes before the shooting. Still trying to process what happened in #Dallas last night. I’m grateful for my life as I’ve never experienced before last night what it’s like to run for your life as gunshots are constantly being rattled off. I’ve never experienced being holed up in a hotel lobby while people pray that a gunman doesn’t walk in which is exactly what happened minutes after. I’m deeply saddened by the loss of innocent police lives that were there to protect this peaceful demonstration against police brutality. Those people killed had nothing to do with the actions of those who wore the same uniform as them as they took innocent lives, just like the murderers last night have nothing to do with the thousands of peaceful protestors marching. I went last night to show solidarity. I listened to mothers who lost their children to police brutality speak of their pain. I listened to the father of the young girl in McKinney who was brutalized by an officer on video last year speak of his pain. I listened to my colleague and friend from Faith Forward Dallas, Dr. Michael Waters, remind people of how to channel that pain. I was reminded once again of the despair that so many of our black brothers and sisters have in a broken system that has failed them for so long. I’ve been to many of these events in the past, but yesterday was different. We marched and chanted #BlackLivesMatter because the world needs to hear it. For too long, they have not in this country and in many parts of the world. But violence is never the answer. Violence breeds more violence. Clearly these attackers coordinated this before the protest, and carried out their attacks just as the protest ended. They have nothing to do with us. We marched for peace and for the end of senselessness that deprives children of their parents, not to deprive the children of those innocent officers killed last night of their own.

I broke down today hearing about the tragedy that struck our brother and sisters in London. I couldn’t wrap my mind around the thought of watching your own children trapped in a building waiting to burn to death.

Then only one single thought calmed my heart. The Creator of those children and those families is more merciful than I could ever be. Or ever imagine being. And they were in His care then. And they remain in His care now.

Perhaps Allah wanted to take them as martyrs in the holiest month of Ramadan. And perhaps he made them feel no pain by making them pass out from the smoke even before the flames touched their body.

May Allah have mercy on their souls and reward all those who risked or gave their lives to save others. Ameen.
