The Day that Bradford did us Proud

The Day that Bradford did us Proud

Assalaamu-Alaykum – Peace be Upon you
So you’ve probably heard that the poison that is the English Defence League (EDL) held a ’static’ protest in Bradford yesterday.

Movin’ On Up

Assalaamu-Alaykum – Peace be Upon you
So as we grow older (and possibly wiser!), it is only natural that we go forth and move on with our lives.
Sometimes the move is towards things that are bigger, better and brighter and sometimes the change is a little more modest but something of an improvement from what was [...]

Humans 0 – Volcano 1

Assalaamu-Alaykum – Peace be Upon you
Well I actually started this post when the Icelandic volcano first erupted in April, but as usual, me being sidetracked into doing other things together with my built-in laziness meant that this post would have been posted long after the volcanic ash cloud was out of the news headlines and [...]

The REAL Position of Women in Islam - What the Media don't want You to Know

The REAL Position of Women in Islam – What the Media don’t want You to Know

Assalaamu-Alaykum – Peace be Upon you
Whether you are a Muslim or a non-Muslim, I’m sure everybody’s either heard or read this before; that Islam is a religion which oppresses women.

One thing in common with all these [...]
