Are the Kids Alright?

Are the Kids Alright?

Assalaamu-Alaykum (Peace be Upon you)
Well it would seem that this post has been a long time coming.
Not just due to the fact that it has been almost a year since my last post but also because so much has been written about this topic in the last couple of weeks, that I simply cannot ignore [...]

Eid Mubarak!!!

Eid Mubarak!!!

Assalaamu-Alaykum – Peace be Upon you
Well just a quick one to say Eid Mubarak to everyone.
Alhumdulillah (all Praise belongs to Allah) it seems that everyone (bar a few exceptions!) is doing Eid-ul-Fitr on Friday 10 September 2010.
May Allah accept our worship in Ramadhan and may He give us all the Taufiq (ability) to continue with [...]

Movin’ On Up

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 [...]

We are Humanity – and We Hope not Hate!!

Assalaamu-Alaykum – Peace be Upon you
Well well well.  After an eventful week showing the actions of the Israeli state upon the flotilla of aid to Gaza, what can I say that has not already been said?

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.
Or you may have heard or read that Islam doesn’t give women equal rights, etc, etc…..and the list goes on.
One thing in common with all these [...]

To Your Heart’s Content

To Your Heart's Content

Assalaamu-Alaykum – Peace be Upon you
Contentment.  Happiness.  Success.
It seems that the three words I have mentioned above are interchangeable in what they describe and in what they define.
You could say that if one is successful, then that success will lead to happiness which in turn will lead to contentment in life.  However, if that is [...]

Too Many Questions

Assalaamu-Alaykum – Peace be Upon you
So the BNP appeared recently on Question Time on the BBC – and as well as his outlandish and disgusting theories and views of which we are more aware of than he thinks, the whole country is also now in uproar debating whether or not Nick Griffin should have been allowed on [...]

Getting Ready for Hajj – Weekend Seminar

Assalaamu-Alaykum – Peace be Upon you
After last weekend’s Hajj gathering at Dewsbury Markaz, alhumdulillah (all Praise belongs to Allah) there is another one this weekend in Batley.
It features many of our area’s prominent Ulema (young and old!) and promises to add that little bit more for people like me (!) in the way of PowerPoint [...]
