Banning the Burka

Belgium voted on banning the Burka, just a couple months after Switzerland voted to ban the minarets, while the Dutch MP who wants to ban the Quran is riding high in the polls.

Defending Masjid Al Aqsa

Masjid Al Aqsa was the 1st qibla of Islam, the place where the Prophet Muhammad (saw) made the night journey to and the 3rd holiest site in Islam. Today, Masjid Al Aqsa is under occupation and under attack, Men over 50 are only allowed to pray on Fridays and the Israelis are digging underneath it and want to destroy it to build a temple!!! This is going on daily but what are we doing to defend this holy mosque, and it’s land? What are the Muslim rulers doing and where are our armies?

Death, the Destroyer of Pleasures

The only thing in life that's definite is...DEATH. The prophet (saw) said "Remember often the destroyer of pleasures", but rather than remember it, we run away from it, though it comes without warning. So have we prepared for the eventuality? shouldn't we be concerned about what happens after, we reach our Final Destination.
