Teeth Breaking Responses To Those Who Want To Extinguish The Light Of Allah

TTT is our brother/sister site that deals with writing articles responding to the most common attacks on Islam. The articles are unarguable and most scholastic (in the English language) following a unique traditional style, giving explanations of scholars, expositions of commentaries and most important of all in a simple short and clear way that everyone can understand.

Help Us Spread The Message

In order to reach as many people as possible IslamDunk needs your help. Almost everyone has a facebook account, an email list or other social connections on the web. All you need to do is use one of our logos or post a link or post our articles and videos, favor them, rate them and keep doing that over and over. This work that we are doing needs to reach every corner of the Earth so that everyone will know the truth of Islam

Shamoun's Lowly Character

Sam thinks he can beat everyone in a debate and that he has already done so. Things have not even happened yet he can predict with certainty outcomes. He thinks no one can answer him. Check out a list of answers right here.

How Cassie embraced Islam - amazing story


Peace be upon you all,

My name is Cassie, I am 23 years old. I graduated as a qualified nurse
this year and was given my first position as a home nurse.
My patient was an English gentleman in his early 80s who suffered from
Alzheimer's. In the first meeting the patient was given his record and
from it could see that he was a convert to the religion of Islam,
therefore he was a Muslim. I knew from this that I would need to take
into account some modes of treatment that my go against his faith, and
therefore try to adapt my care to meet his needs. I brought in some
‘halal’ meat to cook for him and ensured that there was no pork or
alcohol in the premises as I did some research which showed that these
were forbidden in Islam.

My patient was a very advanced stage of his condition so a lot of my
colleagues could not understand why I was going to so much effort for
him, but I understood that a person who commits to a faith deserves
that commitment to be respected, even if they are not in a position to
understand. Anyway after a few weeks with my patient I began to notice
some patterns of movement. At first I thought it was some copied
motioned he's seen someone due, but I saw him repeat the movement as
particular time; morning, afternoon, evening. The movements were to
raise his hands, bow and then put his head to the ground. I could not
understand it. He was also repeating sentences in another language, I
couldn’t figure out what language it was as his speech was slurred but
I know the same verses were repeated daily. Also there was something
strange, he didnt allow me to feed him with my left hand {I am
lefthanded}
Somehow I knew this linked to his religion but didn't know how.

One of my colleagues told me about paltalk as a place for debates and
discussions and as I did not know any Muslims except for my patient I
thought it would be good to speak to some live and ask questions. I
went on the Islam section and entered the room ‘True Message. Here I
asked questioned regarding the repeated movements and was told that
these were the actions of prayer, I did not really believe it until
someone posted a link of the Islamic prayer on youtube.

I was shocked. A man who has lost all memory of his children, of his
occupation, and could barely eat and drink was able to remember not
only actions of prayer but verses that were in another language.
This was nothing short of incredible and I knew that this man was
devout in his faith, which made me want to learn more in order to care
for him the best I could. I came into the paltalk room as often as I
could and was given a link to read the translation of the Quran and
listen to it. The chapter of the ‘Bee’ gave me chills and I repeated
it several times a day. I saved a recording of the Quran on my iPod
and gave it to my patient to listen to, he was smiling and crying, and
in reading the translation I could see why.

I applied what I gained from paltalk to my care for my patient but
gradually found myself coming to the room to find answers for myself.
I never really took the time to look at my life; I never knew my
father, my mother died when I was 3, me and my brother were raised by
our grandparents who died 4 years ago, so now it's just the two of us.

But despite all this loss, I always thought I was happy, content. I
was only after spending time with my patient that felt like I was
missing something. I was missing that sense of peace and tranquility
my patient, even through suffering felt. I wanted that sense of
belonging and a part of something that he felt, even with no one
around him. I was given a list of mosques in my area by a lady on
paltalk and went down to visit one. I watched the prayer and could not
hold back my tears. I felt drawn to the mosque every day and the imam
and his wife would give me books and tapes and welcome any questions I
had. Every question I asked at the mosque and on paltalk was answered
with such clarity and depth that could do nothing but accept them.

I have never practiced a faith but Always believed that there was a
God; I just did not know how to worship Him. One evening I came on
paltalk and one of the speakers on the mic addressed me. He asked me
if I have any questions, I said no. He asked if I was happy with the
answers I was given, I said yes. He asked then what was stopping me
accepting Islam, I could not answer. I went to the mosque to watch the
dawn prayer the imam asked me the same question, I could not answer. I
then went to tend to my patient, I was feeding him and as I looked in
his eyes I just realized, he was brought to me for a reason and the
only thing stopping me from accepting was fear.... not fear in the
sense of something bad, but fear of accepting something good, and
thinking that I was not worthy like this man.

That afternoon I went to the mosque and asked the imam if I could say
my declaration of faith, the Shahadah. He helped me through it was I
was shown how to walk and guided through would I would need to do
next.
I cannot explain the feeling I felt when I said it. It was like
someone woke me up from sleep and sees everything more clearly. The
feeling was overwhelming joy, clarity and most of all.... peace. The
first person I told was not my brother but my patient. I went to him,
and before I even opened my mouth he cried and smiled at me. I broke
down in front of him, I owed him so much. I came home logged on to
paltalk and repeated the shahadah for the room.
They all helped me so much and even though I had never seen a single
one of them, they felt closer to me then my own brother. I did
eventually call my brother to tell him and although he was wasn’t
happy, he supported me and said he would be there, I couldn't ask for
any more.

After my first week as a Muslim my patient passed away in his sleep
while I was caring for him. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raj3oon He
died a peaceful death and I was the only person with him. He was like
the father I never had and he was my doorway to Islam. From the day of
my Shahadah to this very day and for every day for as long as I live,
I will pray that Allah shows mercy on him and grant him every good
deed I perform in the tenfold.
I loved him for the sake of Allah and I pray each night to become an
atoms weight of the Muslim he was. Islam is a religion with an open
door; it is there for those who want to enter it.... Verily Allah is
the Most Merciful, Most Kind.

* note *
Our sister Cassie passed away October 2010 Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi
raj3oon, after she gave dawa3 to her brother, who had accepted Islam
Elhamdulileh.
May Allah swt grant sister Cassie Paradise Ameen Yarrab.
