Wayne Parnell became Muslim


South Africa's Wayne Parnell converts to Islam

Johannesburg: South African fast bowler Wayne Parnell has converted to Islam after a period of personal study and reflection and will celebrate his 22nd birthday on Friday as a Muslim.

Parnell confirmed in a statement on Thursday that he converted to Islamic faith in January this year and is considering a name change to Waleed, which means 'Newborn Son'.

"While I have not yet decided on an Islamic name I have considered the name Waleed which means Newborn Son, but for now my name remains Wayne Dillon Parnell. I will continue to respect the team's endorsement of alcoholic beverages. I am playing cricket in Sussex and this is my immediate focus," said Port Elizabeth-born Parnell.

"As I am approaching my first period of fasting, I ask that this special time is treated with respect. I am a young man, a professional cricketer by trade, and while I can appreciate and am grateful for the public interest in my personal life, my faith choice is a matter which I would like to keep private," said the promising Warriors left-arm seam bowler.

Proteas team manager Mohamed Moosajee, himself a Muslim, said Parnell's Muslim teammates Hashim Amla and Imran Tahir had not influenced his decision to convert from Christianity.

"Wayne already decided a few months ago to follow Islam," Moosajee said of the cricketer, who excelled during the ICC World Cup on the subcontinent.

"The decision to convert was his own decision, but I know nothing of the name change," added Moosajee.

Fellow players, preferring to remain anonymous, said they believed Parnell was very serious about his choice of religion and that he had not touched a drop of alcohol, forbidden to Muslims, since the recent Indian Premier League series.

Supporting Moosajee's denial of influence by Amla, the players said he had never attempted to convert them to his religion, although they had all been very impressed by the discipline and strict adherence that Amla showed to his religion, by refusing to participate in celebrations with them that involved liquor, staying steadfast in his daily prayers even while on tour, and refusing to wear the kit sponsored by South African beer brand Castle Lager.

In his first two years after making his debut for the Proteas in 2009, Parnell developed a hard-living reputation.

In October 2009, he was kicked out of the provincial side Warriors following an incident in a night club in the city of Port Elizabeth in the early hours of the morning.

He came to limelight when he captained the South African Under-19 team in the U-19 World Cup in 2008. He was the youngest player to get a central contract in 2009 at the age of 20 years.

He is the second Christian to have converted to Islam after Pakistan's Yousuf Youhana (now Mohammad Yousuf) in 2006.

3 fake terrorists aka evangelical christians


SSpeakers at Academy Said to Make False Claims

Published: February 7, 2008
The Air Force Academy was criticized by Muslim and religious freedom organizations for playing host on Wednesday to three speakers who critics say are evangelical Christians falsely claiming to be former Muslim terrorists.
The three men were invited as part of a weeklong conference on terrorism organized by cadets at the academy’s Colorado Springs campus under the auspices of the political science department.
The three will be paid a total of $13,000 for their appearance, some of it from private donors, said Maj. Brett Ashworth, a spokesman for the academy.
The three were invited because “they offered a unique perspective from inside terrorism,” Major Ashworth said. The conference is to result in a report on methods to combat terrorism that will be sent to the Pentagon, members of Congress and other influential officials, he added.
Members of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, a group suing the federal government to combat what it calls creeping evangelism in the armed forces, said it was typical of the Air Force Academy to invite born-again Christians to address cadets on terrorism rather than experts who could teach students about the Middle East.
“This stuff going on at the academy today is part of the endemic evangelical infiltration that continues,” said David Antoon, a 1970 academy graduate and a foundation member.
The three men were invited to talk about being recruited and trained as terrorists, not religion, although one of them, Zak Anani, did tell students that converting to Christianity from Islam saved his life, said John Van Winkle, another spokesman for the academy.
Muslim organizations objected to the fact that no other perspective about Islam was offered, saying that the three speakers — Mr. Anani, Kamal Saleem and Walid Shoebat — habitually paint Muslims as inherently violent. All were born in the Middle East but Mr. Saleem and Mr. Shoebat are now American citizens, while Mr. Anani has Canadian citizenship.
“Their entire world view is based on the idea that Islam is evil,” said Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Council on Islamic American Relations. “We want to provide a balancing perspective to their hate speech.”
Academic professors and others who have heard the three men speak in the United States and Canada said some of their stories border on the fantastic, like Mr. Saleem’s account of how, as a child, he infiltrated Israel to plant bombs via a network of tunnels underneath the Golan Heights. No such incidents have been reported, the academic experts said. They also question how three middle-aged men who claim they were recruited as teenagers or younger could have been steeped in the violent religious ideology that only became prevalent in the late 1980s.
Prof. Douglas Howard, who teaches the history of the modern Middle East at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich., heard Mr. Saleem speak last November at the college and said he thought the three were connected to several major Christian evangelical organizations.
“It was just an old time gospel hour — ‘Jesus can change your life, he changed mine,’ ” Mr. Howard said. “That is mixed in with ‘Watch out America, wake up America, the danger of Islam is here.’ ”
Mr. Howard said his doubts about their authenticity grew after stories like the Golan Heights saga as well as something on Mr. Saleem’s Web site along the lines that he was descended from the grand wazir of Islam. “The grand wazir of Islam is a nonsensical term,” Mr. Howard said.
Keith Davies, the director of the Walid Shoebat Foundation, which organizes their appearances, said critics tried to undermine the speakers’ reputation because “they can’t argue with the message.”
Arab-American civil rights organizations question why, at a time when the United States government has vigorously moved to jail or at least deport anyone with a known terrorist connection, the three men, if they are telling the truth, are allowed to circulate freely. A spokesman for the F.B.I. said there were no warrants for their arrest.

Christian Double Standard on Muslim Marital Ways

Christian Hypocrisy: Muslim Marital Ways

Sadly, some myopic and Islamophobic Christians have been missing the point concerning Islam’s encouragement of both husband and wife to fulfil each other’s rights sexually. Christian Islamophobes who lack understanding often cite the following Hadith in their attempts to point score against Muslims:

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah said: “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘If a woman spends the night having forsaken her husband’s bed, the angels will curse her until she goes back.’”(narrated by al-Bukhaari, al-Nikaah, 4795)

These Christians often disregard the following points:

1. The Bible teaches the SAME thing; Christian women are not allowed to refuse their husands sexually (and vice versa) plus must obey their husbands with regards to what they wear etc..

2. Sexual relations are the natural rights of the husband and wife, thus the spouse denying their partner (husband/wife) increases the risk that the husband/wife will seek to satisfy their desires outside of marriage which is a huge sin within Islam and Christianity.

3. Sexual union is part of husband-wife relations and builds intimacy and love between the spouses.

The Bible teaches Christian women cannot refuse sex with their Christian husbands?

Now, those familiar with the Bible may cite the most obvious Bible verse, which instructs the wife to obey the husband in every command:

Ephesians 5:24-33

New Living Translation (NLT)
As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything.
However, this is not the verse I had in mind, though the verse could be deemed more than sufficient to illustrate the point but the following passage in Corinthians teaches us that Christian women (and men) should not refuse their spouses sexual intimacy – very much in the same way as the Islamic teachings above:

1 Corinthians 7:2-5
New Living Translation (NLT)
2 But because there is so much sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman should have her own husband.
3 The husband should fulfill his wife’s sexual needs, and the wife should fulfill her husband’s needs. 4 The wife gives authority over her body to her husband, and the husband gives authority over his body to his wife.
5 Do not deprive each other of sexual relations, unless you both agree to refrain from sexual intimacy for a limited time so you can give yourselves more completely to prayer. Afterward, you should come together again so that Satan won’t be able to tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

*Note, the NIV uses the word ‘marital’ instead of ‘sexual’ in verse three. The two words amount to the same meaning. However, the CEB agrees with the word ‘sexual’.

Learned Christians teach Christian women cannot say no to their husbands’ sexual advances (and vice versa):

"Sex when desired" by either partner: 1 Cor 7:3-4.
If your husband wants sex, it is a sin to refuse him. If your wife wants sex, it is a sin to refuse her. Bible sex is always consensual... your spouse asks, and you always say yes. Many a marriage can be saved by implementing this one rule alone. When you get married, you lose control of your body to your spouse. Studies have shown that about an equal amount of married women want more sex than their husbands, as married men who want more sex than their wives desire. It would be nice to match men and women up as marriage partners based upon their sex drive it would be great. But unfortunately this is often not the case. One partner wants sex more often than the other. In these situations, the partner that doesn’t desire sex must immediately consent to their spouse. Scripture is very clear about this although most Christians have missed this. [http://www.bible.ca/marriage/sex-on-demand.htm]

The Christians understand this passage to even mean if the husband (or wife) wants sex more often than their respective spouse then the spouse MUST IMMEDIATELY CONSENT.

Inconsistent and ignorant Christians

May I ask, why is it that so many Christians are criticisng Islam for something that is totally BIBLICAL and supported by the author of Corinthians (largely agreed to be St Paul)? The answer my friends, is that of ignorance of the Bible and inconsistency.

Paul's advice ignored
Dress code?

A bonus nugget – no more short skirts, shorts, tight jeans, tight tops, transparent clothing, low cut tops etc – if the Christian husband puts his foot down!

Bible.ca write:
1 Cor 7:3-4 also means that your spouse has control over you the way you dress, your hair cut and the way you physically look.

Christian men, speak up!

Oh Christian wives, could you speak up against those, I believe they call them ‘suspenders’ or 'braces', two straps some American Christian men wear to hold their trousers up. Get them to wear belts. Belts look smarter. :)

And PLEASE start wearing the Hijab, we have clearly shown it to be biblical. If  your husbands complain, tell them its your right to wear the clothing of Mary (p).

Christians ignore Paul AGAIN

This Bible teaching of not refusing sex with your spouse unless mutually agreed seems to be disliked by some Christians. I’m not sure why. Paul is presenting a perfectly reasonable teaching as it helps keep Christian men and women away from temptations of adultery, pornography and other sexual deviances. Muslims have a similar teaching, looks like Paul is agreeing with Islam again as we previously taught Paul strongly supported the hijab.
Why are so many modern day Christians ignoring Paul’s conservative teachings which are precautions against adultery and fornication? Surely if America followed these two practical and basic teachings of Paul we would have less adultery and fornication in Western societies (as well as Eastern societies as so many within the East imitate and adopt American culture).

The question still stands, why?

Why Justin from Texas accepted Islam? TheDeenShow

How I Became Muslim. Brother Ameen's story.


بسم اهللا الرحمن الرحيم
This is the story of how I became a Muslim. The story begins with the gift of a Qur’an. It continues with the decision to fast during Ramadan and comes to a turning point with a sequence of events that occurred three months later.
Each of these events is a mile marker along the path that led me to embrace Islam. As with all paths that change the course of one’s life, that change would have taken far longer to complete without the right guide. The guide turned out to be a colleague from work, who is now my brother in Islam. (May Allah reward him for his good deeds, and may Allah provide such a guide to others who may be in need.)
Like many westerners who live and work in the Middle East, I came with a natural curiosity about the people I was going to be living with for the next year. I knew very little about their history, their culture and their traditions.
Each of these is related in one way or another to Islam and to the Qur’an. It is not uncommon to be offered a copy of the Qur’an in response to a request for information about Islam. In my case, a co-worker went to Mecca and came back with a copy of The Meaning of the Holy Qur’an, by ‘Abdullah Yusuf ‘Ali.
I thought, “This is a nice book. I’ll set it on my night stand in the bedroom and read a little each day.” The Qur’an sat there, and sat there, and sat there. After weeks, I had read only the first few pages. There were too many reports, documents and papers from work that always seemed more important. I had a new job and there was a lot to do.
Then came Ramadan. My co-workers were fasting. Everyone around me was fasting. I thought to myself, “If they can do it, so can I.” I kept the fast all month.
Besides adjusting to life without food and water all day, the Ramadan fast taught me to be patient. It also gave me a new understanding and appreciation for the things that are most important. My days at work were always busy, but I learned during Ramadan is that being busy is not enough. There are times each day when we need to take a step back, reflect on what we have and put ourselves in the place of those who are far less fortunate. There are times when we need to think about more than what is going on in the hustle and bustle of our own life.
Ramadan came and went. So did the sense of balance and focus that I had gained. What I learned during Ramadan was soon fading from my memory.
Over the past few months, I had become friends with a co-worker who impressed me with his good behavior and work ethic. This co-worker was a Muslim. My life
1 of 4quickly got more and more complicated. So did his. In fact, his problems were much more challenging than mine. We talked about many things in the weeks that followed. But we did not discuss religion or talk about Islam. We did not need to.
My colleague’s deeds taught me more about Islam and what it means to be a Muslim than any explanation or discussion could. No matter what was going wrong, or how long it had been going wrong, he accepted it, dealt with it, kept his faith and did not give up.
In late November, shortly before the Islamic New Year, I woke up in the pitch dark of night to a voice that said, very clearly, “Pray!”
I replied, “I don’t know how to pray.” Again, the voice said, “Pray!”
The only words that came to mind were “I believe” and “I submit.” After that, I went back to sleep.
I’m not the sort of person that goes around telling people I hear voices in the middle of the night. But I did tell my friend. He said, “Hmm, that’s interesting. What do you think it means?” I said, “I don’t know. It could be just a dream.”
About four days later, I had another experience like the first. This time the voice said, “Read!” I couldn’t really say, “I don’t know how to read.” The command was not repeated.
I was now wide awake. I thought, “What the heck, I’m wide awake. Soon I’ll have to get up and go to work anyway.” So I reached for the book that was on the night stand by my bed.
It was the Qur’an. I picked it up and opened to the first Sura. As I read the commentary, I began to understand that the message of the Qur’an wasn’t just something I needed to read for a few minutes on the way to sleep each night. It was something I needed to study and take seriously when my mind was fresh, alert and focused.
Over the next few weeks, I began to read more of the Qur’an. I read it at times when my mind was open and receptive. I thought about what I was reading. I thought about what had happened over the past week and I tried to figure out what was going on. It was like looking at the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that just came out of the box.
2 of 4
As I read more and thought more, things began to make more sense. The puzzle began to look like a picture. That picture had a very personal meaning -- for me, for my life, and for how I was going to live it.
The puzzle, however, was not complete. One piece was missing. It was the piece that locked all the others into place.
That piece didn’t come from a voice. It didn’t come from my reading of the Qur’an. It came from my friend and from the way he lived his life. It was what he did in daily life, not what he talked or read about.
The voice that came to me had said, “Read!” I was reading. But the voice had also said, “Pray!” I was not praying.
When the voice said, “Pray!” for the second time, I had said “I believe” and “I submit”. But I wasn’t doing any believing and I wasn’t doing any submitting.
I called my friend and said, “I think I have to learn more about believing and submitting.” He said, “No problem. It’s pretty simple. We call it the Shahada. It is a simple statement in Arabic of our belief that there is no God but Allah and that Mohammed is his prophet. Are you sure that’s what you want to do?”
He also cautioned me. He said, “Shahada is something we take very seriously. It is a declaration to Allah and a commitment to follow the path of Islam everyday for the rest of your life. If you’re not ready to do this yet, it’s OK. It’s a big step. I understand that. I’ll be here for you whenever you are ready.”
By now, you have probably figured out that I’m not the fastest learner on the planet. It had been two weeks since I was given some very clear instructions on what to do and I was still sitting on the fence.
Two days later, I called my friend and told him I wanted to perform Shahada.
I know that the noon prayer on Friday is a special occasion. I asked my friend if I could make my declaration at the masjid near his house after the noon prayer on Friday. He said, “Sure. This is great news. I will speak with the imam.”
I don’t think I slept much that night. No one in my family is particularly religious. And no one knows much about Islam at all. This isn’t like going out one day and coming home with something different for dinner from the grocery store.
Before going to the masjid that Friday, my friend taught me how to wash. We talked about the prayers that would be said and he showed me how they would be performed.
3 of 4
As we stepped into the door to the masjid and said “Bismillah ir-Rahman ir- Rahim “, I entered a new world.
As we prayed at the masjid, it felt like I was travelling back in time to the month of Ramadan. Once again, I felt the peace, balance and connection with a world much larger and much simpler than the one I spent so much of my time worrying about.
With the kindness and help of imam Sheikh Ahmed, mu'adhdhin Abu-Annas, elders like Abu Hazza, and others who shared my birth as a Muslim that Friday, I took the first big step in the new direction I was heading.
The next step was to do what I was told to do in the first place, “Pray!” Five times a day, everyday. Not just reading about Islam, but putting what I read into action. Turning it into deeds.
A few days later, I went to the Ministry of Justice to register my conversion.
Looking back over the events of my life during the past six months, I must give special thanks and recognition to those who made my conversion possible. I thank Allah for support from the Head of the Embracing Islam Section of the Judicial Department. I especially thank Allah for the patience, encouragement and helpfulness of my Muslim colleagues, my friend, and the faithful I pray with at the masjid each day.
This is the story of how I became a Muslim.
May Allah guide your steps along the path you choose in life as He has guided mine.
May the beauty and truth of Islam be yours forever.
Ameen 7-Muharram-1432
