Continuation to a sister's e mail

hello my sister
I wanted your input on this article. What do you think about it?
Do you agree or disagree
Also about one of your comments - yes I agree that good people are just good people whether they are Muslims or not. However not believing in Allah is the worse of actions because it spurs from arrogance, and that was what got Satan to be where he is. So yes good people are good people. One of the best I met was an Atheist. However that does not dismiss Islam from being the truth. If it would have been as such people would have been left alone without any guidance, and as we know people have disagreed over centuries as to what does it mean to be A GOOD PERSON. They even killed each other.
My argument based on proof was that a practicing Muslim or Islam does not allow evil and ill treatment of women, but encourages kind treatment. Every woman is a wife or a daughter, a mother or a grandmother, and paradise is at their feet. Would you treat someone in evil ways if you know that paradise is at their feet. Would you if you knew that the prophet himself told you to treat them kind? No
People have adopted different interpretations of things over the centuries, and women suffered because of their opression, however Islam came to liberate them. Not from God but from this world. A woman has her role in life, give by god, and so does a man. Together they are a team. In a football game the defender cannot complain how come the forward gets to score all the goals? The defender cannot go and leave his or her position and play forward, not can the gollie. When they do, they get a goal against. The defender is part of the team. They have a great major role, and should not complain how come the forward gets certain priviledges. That is the same with man and women. They work together. Women should not complain how come men get to do this and that, while their job is so important and in the eyes of God so great. Women do not need to do all the work to earn paradise as man do. All they have to do is be obedient in good things, and to protect themselves and they can choose which paradise door they want to enter from. They are bestowed upon great things such as child bearing, and mercy that men can never understand. Is that unfair from God or from Islam. My wife loves our children in a different and better way because God gave her that advantage. Should I complain. I have to go out and work hard to earn paradise, while my wife has it at her feet, all she has to do is be satisfied and accept her position on the team. In Islam there are rights and duties. When we come to accept them we will achieve peace.
Women are not instruments of men, not in Islam. They are equitable in the sight of God, but with different rights and obligations. Islam gives equity not equality. Equality means giving 30 children of different genders and different ages the same color shoes, the same size shoes. What is the problem? It won't fit, it will not match their gender, they will seek all their life to try to fit in those shoes, but they will not be. Equity is giving each child based on what they need and what they can accommodate. Each child gets colors that match their gender and size that match their feet. That is Islam

Woman's Reflection on Leading Prayer

by Yasmin Mogahed

"Given my privilege as a woman, I only degrade myself by trying to be something I'm not--and in all honesty--don't want to be: a man. As women, we will never reach true liberation until we stop trying to mimic men, and value the beauty in our own God-given distinctiveness."

On March 18, 2005 Amina Wadud led the first female-led Jumuah (Friday) prayer. On that day women took a huge step towards being more like men. But, did we come closer to actualizing our God-given liberation? I don't think so.
What we so often forget is that God has honored the woman by giving her value in relation to God-not in relation to men. But as western feminism erases God from the scene, there is no standard left-but men. As a result the western feminist is forced to find her value in relation to a man. And in so doing she has accepted a faulty assumption. She has accepted that man is the standard, and thus a woman can never be a full human being until she becomes just like a man-the standard.
When a man cut his hair short, she wanted to cut her hair short. When a man joined the army, she wanted to join the army. She wanted these things for no other reason than because the " standard " had it.

What she didn't recognize was that God dignifies both men and women in their distinctiveness--not their sameness. And on March 18, Muslim women made the very same mistake.

For 1400 years there has been a consensus of the scholars that men are to lead prayer. As a Muslim woman, why does this matter? The one who leads prayer is not spiritually superior in any way. Something is not better just because a man does it. And leading prayer is not better, just because it's leading. Had it been the role of women or had it been more divine, why wouldn't the Prophet have asked Ayesha or Khadija, or Fatima-the greatest women of all time-to lead? These women were promised heaven-and yet they never lead prayer.

But now for the first time in 1400 years, we look at a man leading prayer and we think, " That's not fair." We think so although God has given no special privilege to the one who leads. The imam is no higher in the eyes of God than the one who prays behind.

On the other hand, only a woman can be a mother. And God has given special privilege to a mother. The Prophet taught us that heaven lies at the feet of mothers. But no matter what a man does he can never be a mother. So why is that not unfair?

When asked who is most deserving of our kind treatment? The Prophet replied 'your mother' three times before saying 'your father' only once. Isn't that sexist? No matter what a man does he will never be able to have the status of a mother.

And yet even when God honors us with something uniquely feminine, we are too busy trying to find our worth in reference to men, to value it-or even notice. We too have accepted men as the standard; so anything uniquely feminine is, by definition, inferior. Being sensitive is an insult, becoming a mother-a degradation. In the battle between stoic rationality (considered masculine) and self-less compassion (considered feminine), rationality reigns supreme.

As soon as we accept that everything a man has and does is better, all that follows is just a knee jerk reaction: if men have it-we want it too. If men pray in the front rows, we assume this is better, so we want to pray in the front rows too. If men lead prayer, we assume the imam is closer to God, so we want to lead prayer too. Somewhere along the line we've accepted the notion that having a position of worldly leadership is some indication of one's position with God.

A Muslim woman does not need to degrade herself in this way. She has God as a standard. She has God to give her value; she doesn't need a man.

In fact, in our crusade to follow men, we, as women, never even stopped to examine the possibility that what we have is better for us. In some cases we even gave up what was higher only to be like men.

Fifty years ago, society told us that men were superior because they left the home to work in factories. We were mothers. And yet, we were told that it was women's liberation to abandon the raising of another human being in order to work on a machine. We accepted that working in a factory was superior to raising the foundation of society-just because a man did it. Then after working, we were expected to be superhuman-the perfect mother, the perfect wife, the perfect homemaker-and have the perfect career. And while there is nothing wrong, by definition, with a woman having a career, we soon came to realize what we had sacrificed by blindly mimicking men. We watched as our children became strangers and soon recognized the privilege we'd given up.

And so only now-given the choice-women in the West are choosing to stay home to raise their children. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, only 31 percent of mothers with babies, and 18 percent of mothers with two or more children, are working full-time. And of those working mothers, a survey conducted by Parenting Magazine in 2000, found that 93% of them say they would rather be home with their kids, but are compelled to work due to 'financial obligations'. These 'obligations' are imposed on women by the gender sameness of the modern West, and removed from women by the gender distinctiveness of Islam.

It took women in the West almost a century of experimentation to realize a privilege given to Muslim women 1400 years ago.
Given my privilege as a woman, I only degrade myself by trying to be something I'm not--and in all honesty--don't want to be: a man. As women, we will never reach true liberation until we stop trying to mimic men, and value the beauty in our own God-given distinctiveness.

If given a choice between stoic justice and compassion, I choose compassion. And if given a choice between worldly leadership and heaven at my feet-I choose heaven.

Allahu Allahu Allahu
Allahu Allahu Allahu
Truly He is the One!
He has no father or son!
Everything in creation was by Him begun
With His infinite power anything could be done
Ask Allah for His Pardon
And you’ll enter the Garden

Before Him there were none
Of partners He has none
He knows what is apparent and what is hidden
All the fate of creation has already been written
His Will is always done
And can never be undone

From amongst all humans
Muhammad was chosen
He was illiterate and he was an orphan
Yet Allah sent him to those who were pagans
Oh Allah let us drink
From his hand in the fountain

Ya Allah You’re the Sovereign
You’re the Sultan of Sultans
Please protect me from Shaytan and all of his treason
Let him not with his whispers my iman ever weaken
My only wish in this life
Is to attain Your Pardon

Allahu Allahu Allahu

What does islam mean to me (by brother Adamo)

My Du'a

"O Allah, my Lord and my God! O Ever Living and Eternal One! O Most Merciful One! O Most Gracious One! O Most Loving One! O Most Patient One! O Most Kind One! O Most Gentle One! O Most Holy One! O Most Wise and Knowing One! O Almighty and Most High One! You alone are my King! You alone are my God! I bear witness that You are One and without partner! Bless Muhammad, his pure family and companions! O my Lord, Keep me among those who bow down in Submission to Your Will. Bless me and keep me on Your Straight Path, the Path that You have Revealed from Yourself, the Path that You have Favoured, the Path which leads to Your Grace. Preserve me as a Muslim, one who bows down to You in submission and humility, and protect me from joining partners in worship along with You, which is a sin that You have sworn that You will never forgive. O Allah, I thank you for all of the Blessings You have given me. And I thank You for the Greatest Blessing and Mercy that You have bestowed upon me, which is the Bounty of Al-Islam; the Pure Religion, the Straight Path, the True Faith, the Way of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, never did they associate partners with You. O Loving One, make the Qur'an the Light of my life and the Love of my heart, for it is Your Eternal Speech and Word. O Forgiving One! Save me from the Fire and grant me Paradise where I will live with You forever and look upon Your Most Glorious Face. And Bless Your Final Messenger, the one whom You chose to Guide mankind and Reveal the Truth. Bless Muhammad, his pure family and his righteous companions! Truly Lord, You are One, and I submit my face toward You and You alone, and by Your Grace, I am a Muslim."

What Islam means to me..

To me, Islam is the purest of pure, the holiest of holy, the most complete of complete. It is the Way of the entire Universe. The planets, the stars, the sun, the moon, the air, the wind, the seas, the rivers, the trees, the animals, the matter, and the countless number of atoms that make up the Universe.. all submit to the Will, Order, Law, and Design of the Creator of all things. That is Islam. The Way of the Universe, the Universal Law that is Eternal. It is the only religion/faith in which it's name does not come from a person, a place or a thing.. making it completely Universal and un-restricted to any specific place or time in history. Islam is the Religion, Faith, Teaching and Way of all the Prophets, who all brought the same Message to Humanity, which is to worship God alone and attest to His Oneness, His Holiness, His Purity, and His Uniqueness, and to shun the worship of idols and false gods. Islam is a direct Relationship with the Lord of the Universe, without anything or anyone between, just you and your Loving Creator. Islam is Salah, which is the Pillar and Perfection of Deen. Is is the most Perfect, Complete and Spiritually Nourishing Prayer. It is standing before the Presence of God, facing the East towards His Holy Temple/House, it is worshiping Him as He commanded us, as the Prophets did, bowing and prostrating in humbleness and love for Him, praising Him before sunrise, at noon, when the sun is at it's highest, when the sun sets, and when it is dark, constantly remembering Him, praising Him, and seeking His help. It is the Perfect Prayer and Ritual that came from Heaven itself, it is the exact imitation of the worship that the Angels offer up to God in Heaven before His Glorious and Mighty Throne. They are the 5 daily Prayers that were chosen for us in Heaven, which started by our beloved Prophet Moses telling our blessed Prophet Muhammad peace be upon them to go to God and make it easy for us. Salah is the Prayer and Ritual of the Prophets, and one of the foundations of Islam, Islam is perfecting your Salah.

Islam is the only Religion that befits God's Majesty and Perfection. Every other religion distorts God to some extent. Islam is deliverance from idolatry, Islam is deliverance from worshiping things which can not hear you or benefit you. Islam is the 10 Commandments, the Way of Noah, Moses, Abraham and Jesus, peace be upon them. Islam is the way of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.. never did they associate partners with God. Islam is loving and following all of the Prophets of God, and following the Seal of Prophets, Muhammad the Beloved One of God, peace be upon him and his pure family. Islam is believing in the Holy and Glorious Qur'an, which is the very Speech of the Eternal and Living God. Reciting, reading, listening, and pondering upon the Beauty, Power, Wisdom, and Eloquence of the Qur'an is one of the many blessings and wonders of being a Muslim. The Qur'an is the gateway to God, when we recite it and hear it, we are in the Presence of God through His Speech, in communion with Him.. just as the Prophet Moses was in the Presence of God at the burning bush when hearing God's Holy Speech, so are the Muslims connected to God in His Presence when we interact with the Qur'an, the Preserved Speech and Word of God Almighty, Allah azza wa jal! Every time a Muslim opens the Qur'an and recites it or hearts it, he/she is like Moses hearing the Speech of Allah at the burning bush in the Holy Valley of Tuwa.

Islam is Surrendering to the Will and Laws of God, and by doing such, one will attain Peace.

Islam is the Truth.

First Islamic Inscription May Solve Qur'an Question

First Islamic Inscription May Solve Qur'an Question

1,300-Year-Old Note | Discovery News Video

Nov. 18, 2008 -- An Arabic traveler who engraved his name on a block of red sandstone over 1,300 years ago may help solve a question about the Qur'an that has vexed historians for hundreds of years: Why was the text seemingly written without diacritical marks?
Diacritical marks, which include accent marks, tildes, umlauts and other notations, help to distinguish one letter from another and aid in pronunciation. When added or removed, they can completely change the meaning of a word or sentence.
Analysis of the recently found sandstone inscription, which predates the earliest known copies of the Qur'an, determined that it reads: "In the name of Allah/ I, Zuhayr, wrote (this) at the time 'Umar died/year four/And twenty."
According to researcher Ali ibn Ibrahim Ghabban, who, with his wife, discovered the 644 A.D. inscription northwest of Saudi Arabia, "It is an immensely important find, since it is our earliest dated Arabic inscription."
Ghabban, a member of the Supreme Commission for Tourism, Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, added that it also "shows evidence of a fully-fledged system of diacritical marks."
A paper describing the find appears in the latest issue of the journal Arabian Archaeology and Epigraphy.

Early Arabs Followed the Rain
Jennifer Viegas' Blog The Qur'an

Robert Hoyland, a professor of Arabic and Middle East Studies at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, explained the significance of Ghabban's determination to Discovery News.
"Whether the Qur'an was originally written in a script that contained diacritical marks is very important because Western Qur'an scholars generally say that it wasn't and therefore feel free to make some amendments to the Qur'anic text by changing the diacritical marks to give it a different meaning, which is, of course, very unpopular with modern Muslim scholars and Muslims in general, who mostly feel that the Qur'anic text they use is the original text revealed to Muhammad by God," he said.
Although the earliest Islamic inscription, which is also the world's second oldest evidence for written Arabic, does not include punctuation or vowel marks, it does contain markings to distinguish consonants that are identical in shape. This proves such a marking system was already in place before the earliest known copies of the Qur'an, which date to sometime between 652 and 680 A.D., Hoyland indicated.
Ghabban now believes Muhammad's close associates and early followers "stripped Qur'ans of diacritical marks" in order to permit "Muslims to read the Qur'an as it was revealed to Muhammad in the various dialects of the Arabs, and allowing the skeleton of the word to bear all the meanings which appear in it."
Hoyland added that, "this would mean that Western scholars would have less excuse to change the text as we have it now."
Without diacritical marks, for example, a sentence such as, "I took with my whole hands," can also be interpreted as, "I took with my fingertips."
The first known Islamic inscription, whose carver might have made his own mark while walking down a Syrian pilgrimage road, may solve yet another Arabic history mystery: When did noted Islamic leader Umar ibn al-Khattab die?
According to tradition and other historical accounts, a Persian soldier assassin stabbed Umar in public as the caliph was leading prayers in a mosque. Zuhayr, who may have witnessed the violent crime, recorded that Umar died in "four and twenty," which means 644 A.D.

An e mail response to a woman about abuse in Islam

Living in England,talking about virtues of thrue islam doesnt impress me at all.I was a muslim and I havent converted to any other religion.I`m not advertising any belief or talking behalf of anybody(as muslims claim,like being paid by america,israel..BULLSHIT!).As a women Im simply saying I`ve had it.I dont want to suffer anymore by islam.Instead of preaching us about "what is islam or what is not".Go to the places where Islam rules and see what is islam has done there,what is suffering and preach those wrongdoers who doesnt know islam as much you do.I wish you good luck! And I like to send couple brunch of miswak to one of converted ladies who was preaching about women rights in islam.She can understand what is being beaten by miswak(she thinks man can beat wife with a tootbrush)


peace be with you
Thank you for your e mail. I do agree with you on many points. I have travelled to Muslim lands, and I know what you mean. There are many people who have done lots of evil, and women have been marginalized, abused and destroyed. However I would like to say that Islam is not that. Islam does not abuse women. Stupid so called Muslim men abuse women. The prophet Muhammad said: THE BEST AMONGST YOU IS THE BEST TO HIS WIFE.
So those people who beat women are not the best.
People have distorted Islam, and just because a country is called a Muslim country does not mean that there are Muslim rulling it. Look at Libya, look at Saudi, look at Sudan, who rules those so called Muslim countries? Proper God fearing Muslims? No, but corrupt people.
If you study the history of Islam you will find that true Islam existed and insh Allah will come back. People are ignorant, people don't know Islam. In Pakistan (my wife is from there) the mullahs' without knowledge have taken over, very few people of knowledge left. THIS WAS A SIGN OF THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT PROPHESIZED. THE PROPHET SAID THAT TOWARDS THE END OF TIME, KNOWLEDGE WILL BE LIFTED FROM PEOPLE.
You see the treatment of Muslim women as the media shows you as a bad thing. I see it number one as a prophecy, and number two as a big media stunt. Talk to my wife, talk to other sisters not even from the west but from those bad countries in the east, and see if they are abused? I know many, how have God fearing husbands, who treat them like princesses.
As for the tooth brush issue, I dont' agree with that. An I will come very blunt here. I am not an apologetic. The example used by the prophet of the tooth brush was to show that a woman should not be abused or hit hard. So beating a woman with a toothbrush is just not possible. How can you? It's a joke. It was symbolic. However a GOD fearing man who controls his anger, who is sincere a good person, who finds his wife cheating, or gambling or drinking, or doing bad things, leaving her children wihthout provision, stripping in clubs, going with boy frinds out to the bar, drinking herself till she passes out, showing her body to everyone, and acting in porno movies, trying to puke everytime she eats because the stupid movies she is watching are telling her what is beauty and what is not, killing herself wiht drugs (this is what the west is doing to the female gender - while man love to sit back and enjoy the product) well a good God fearing husband should FIRST SEEK HELP, IN TERMS OF TALKING TO HER, ADVISING HER, BEING GENTLE, DOING GOOD TO HER, TRYING TO SOLVE IT OUT. (THERE IS NOT TIME LIMIT FOR THIS) SECOND STEP HE SHOULD CUT SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH HER. HE SHOULD NOT SLEEP WITH HER. (how many husbands can do that. Andn I'm not talking about one day. How many can do that. Yet they jump and beat their wives. They jump from sept 0 to step 3 and leave their wives with a black eye, with a broken head, with broken limbs. Allah will punish them and trow them in hell if they dont' stop.) AND IF TALKING NICE AND TRYING TO FIND A PEACEFUL SOLUTION DOES NOT WORK, AND STAYING AWAY FROM HER SEXUALLY DOES NOT WORK, SHE STILL DOES DRUGS, SHE STILL IS EVEIL, SHE STILL STRIPS, SHE LETS THE KIDS ALMOST DIE, SHE SLEEPS WITH ANOTHER MAN, SHE KEEPS TROWHIGN OUT THE FAMILY MONEY AT THE PUB, IN THE CASION, AT STRIP CLUBS, THEN THE TRIRD STEP IS THAT HE WITH FEAR OF GOD, NOT OUT OF ANGER, BUT OUT OF GOD'S ORDER, HE CAN HIT HER AND MAKE HER REALIZE THAT SUCH CRAP IS NOT TOLERATED, AND HE PUTS FEAR IN HER, WITH HOPE THAT SHE WILL WAKE UP AT LEAST IF NOT OUT OF LOVE FOR HIM AND FEAR OF GOD, AT LEAST OUT OF FEAR OF HIM. A parent loves his child but sometimes he slaps his or her but when words dont' sink in, and we all know that that slap kept us out of trouble many times.
So there you have it. I say things as they are, I don't apologize and I don't like when people sugar coat things. O HIT ME WITH A TOOTHBRUSH. IT WILL NOT HURT ME. THAT'S GARBAGE.
But having the correct knowledge of what Islam is and what it allows and what it's not, is the difference between heaven and hell.
I pray that you look into the truth of Islam and not the stupid actions of some people who are astray maximized by stupid media, and hypocrites who call themselves Muslims.
I am a Muslim and I'm proud of it and I hope to die defending the truth of it, even against those who have messed YOU my sister up.
I pray for you and for the healing of your heart. I pray that Al Waddud (The Most Loving - one of Allahs names) will shower you with His love and mercy and heal your scars. I feel like crying when I get e mails like this, and I tell you I do get them quite often.
You take care
I hope to hear from you

Legal age for marriage - was prophet Muhammad A pedophile

This is a video made by a non muslim (Largo64) who explains how the things were decades or a century ago, marrying young girls was something permissible at that time.
His grandmother married at the age of 14 when his granfather was much more older than her.
He wishes that nobody accused his granfather of pedophilia when it was something moral and ethical less than a century ago in USA.

Ps: My grandmother got married at the age of 10 and she was pregnant at the age of 11 my grandfather was 23!!!!
NOBODY ACCUSED MY GRANFATHER FOR BEING A PEDOPHILE or a child molester in Michigan 89 years ago lol

please check my videos later I will make a video with reliable sources showing the age of consent in most of the states in the USA during the 20th century (exemple: For DELAWARE IT WAS ONLY 7) hahahaha

In the late nineteenth century,"Age of consent" referred to the legal age at which a girl could consent to sexual relations. Men who engaged in sexual relations with girls who had not reached the age of consent could be criminally prosecuted. American reformers were shocked to discover that the laws of most states set the age of consent at the age of ten or twelve, and in one state, Delaware, the age of consent was only seven. Women reformers and advocates of social purity initiated a campaign in 1885 to petition legislators to raise the legal age of consent to at least sixteen, although their ultimate goal was to raise the age to eighteen. The campaign was eventually quite successful; by 1920, almost all states had raised the age of consent to sixteen or eighteen.

Age of consent for a woman to have sex or marry in western 18th century

Ramadan in Windsor

Love of Allah

Yet of mankind are some who take unto themselves (objects of worship which they set as) rivals to Allah, loving them with a love like (that which is the due) of Allah (only) - those who believe are stauncher in their love for Allah - Oh, that those who do evil had but known, (on the day) when they behold the doom, that power belongeth wholly to Allah, and that Allah is severe in punishment!
( سورة البقرة , Al-Baqara, Chapter #2, Verse #165)

What is the most important thing in your life? Think about it right now. What do you love the most? What would you give your life for? What would you leave your family for? Who is the one who is in your heart all the time, remembering?
For me it is Allah swt. I love Allah with all my heart and soul. I would hat to live a life that is deprived of Allah's remembrance, His love, His mercy and compassion. No matter what happens, loving Alalh is what keeps me going.
As Muslims our deen is under attack by missionaries left and right. They say: Islam does not love, there is no love in Islam, it's all hate and hell and blood. But what more ignorant of statement than that? Allah's name is Al Waddud. The Loving, the One who Loves, the best love. He loves you and I if we love Him. He loves us if we repent to Him, He loves us if we listen to him. It is the love, the special love the love that only believers receive. Allah does care about all His creatures however the believer and non believer are not loved the same. Why? Because in Islam there is a fine line between evil and good. Good is rewarded, evil is punished. God is loved, evil is hated. People keep claiming that they love God, yet they do not demonstrate it. How can someone claim that they love God, and they disobey Him day and night. How come? Do you love God? Then obey Him.

Say, (O Muhammad, to mankind): If ye love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
( سورة آل عمران , Aal-e-Imran, Chapter #3, Verse #31)

I leave you with a beautiful Hadith and I want you to concentrate on the last part, the part about love. The prayer that the prophet makes to Allah, about love.

Narrated Mu’adh ibn Jabal
Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) was detained one morning from observing the dawn prayer (in congregation) along with us till the sun had almost appeared on the horizon. He then came out hurriedly and Iqamah for prayer was observed and he conducted it (prayer) in brief form. When he had concluded the prayer by saying As-salamu alaykum wa Rahmatullah, he called out to us saying: Remain in your places as you were. Then turning to us he said: I am going to tell you what detained me from you (on account of which I could not join you in the prayer) in the morning. I got up in the night and performed ablution and observed the prayer as had been ordained for me. I dozed in my prayer till I was overcome by (sleep) and lo, I found myself in the presence of my Lord, the Blessed and the Glorious, IN THE BEST FORM. He said: Muhammad! I said: At Thy service, my Lord. He said: What these highest angels contend about? I said: I do not know. He repeated it thrice. He said: Then I saw Him put HIS PALMS between my shoulder blades till I felt the coldness of HIS FINGERS between the two sides of my chest. Then everything was illuminated for me and I could recognize everything. He said: Muhammad! I said: At Thy service, my Lord. He said: What do these high angels contend about? I said: In regard to expiations. He said: What are these? I said: Going on foot to join congregational prayers, sitting in the mosques after the prayers, performing ablution well despite difficulties. He again said: Then what do they contend? I said: In regard to the ranks. He said: What are these? I said: Providing of food, speaking gently, observing the prayer when the people are asleep. He again said to me: Beg (Your Lord) and say: O Allah, I beg of Thee (power) to do good deeds, and abandon abominable deeds, to love the poor, that Thou forgive me and show mercy to me and when Thou intendst to put people to trial Thou causes me to die unblemished and I beg of Thee Thy love and the love of one who loves Thee and the love for the deed which brings me near to Thy love. Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said: It is a truth, so learn it and teach it.
Transmitted by Ahmad, Tirmidhi who said: This is a hasan sahih hadith and I asked Muhammad ibn Isma'il about this hadith and he said: It is a sahih hadith. (Tirmidhi Hadith, Number 245; ALIM CD-ROM Version)

So love one another brothers and sisters. The prophet said you will not believe until you love one another. Love one another, don't hate each other. Spread the salams, spread the peace.

Should it matter what color Jesus was?

The truth is YES, it should, not because of the color but because of what happened to people of his color and what happened in the first place when Jesus was depicted as being white. Just like Christmas, the date is false, the event is false, but they say: HEY IT'S THE SPIRIT THAT MATTERS. What happened to people is that they don't want truth anymore, all they care is about the spirit, wile the spirit is leading them astray. I wonder which spirit that is? Maybe Satan?
