Or, even if you don’t see him, surely you are on his radar and he sees you all the time.”
You do these things, and you will be living your life fully and entirely for Allah.
So, love Allah and serve Allah’s creation, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, human and non-human alike.
That is how you live for Allah. And that is what Islam came into this world to teach everyone: How to live for and with Allah.
This is also the core of what is called the Islamic Shari’ah – the Divine Law that God gave to Moses, Jesus, Abraham and Muhammad (God Bless Them All!).
It is a collection of divine principles and practices common to Islam, Judaism, Christianity and all other belief systems with roots in any form of divine guidance. And in a truly global, timeless and trans-cultural context, it represents the best that it is possible for humanity to have.
If you want to lay your hands on Divine Shari’ah, then look no farther than the Ten Commandments. For, that is Shari’ah that the Mighty God placed in your hands.
Two Good Reasons Why American Muslims Must Love America
Muslims of America must love America not only for what America can and has given them, which is a great deal, but also, and perhaps more so, for what they can and have given America, which is also a great deal.
The Miracle of Fast-Breaking in Ramadan that
You Can See with Your Own Eyes
Everyone else will tell you about miracles. But I want to show you one. I mean no disrespect to Muslims when I say this.
But the fact is that Muslims are perhaps among the most unpunctual people on earth. See them in their natural habitat – most Muslim societies of the world – you will find them dragging themselves to things as late and as slow and as tardy as possible. Except when it comes to breaking their fast during Ramadan.
Then all of a sudden the miracle of Ramadan breaks out. No force on earth can stop Muslims anywhere from falling over each other rushing to catch the precise moment for breaking their fast – for Iftaar that is.
If you do not think this is a miracle then what do you think it is? Besides, it is a miracle that you can see with your own bare eyes. And it is one that you can live and experience yourself.
A God besides God, as the Bible Calls It
Anything that gets in the way of your single-minded commitment to God, and your unflinching service to humanity, Islam calls it an “Ilaah.”
The Bible calls it “a god besides God.” Do you think the Bible and the Qur’an may share some common truths? How do you think that came to be?
Shakespeare: And Yet, Conscience Doth Make Cowards of Us All
Liars know they are liars. And they know they are wrong. More often than not, that alone should be enough to keep them from truly enjoying the fruits of their lies and evil ways. Assuming, that is, they do have a conscience of some kind and their sense of right and wrong is not fully atrophied.
Truth vs. Falsehood Is the Same as Light vs. Darkness
Truth is Light and Falsehood is Darkness. Even in defeat, Truth has a luster and sweetness, all its own, that Falsehood even in its greatest moments of triumph cannot match.
Truth Has Had Some Great Advocates and Champions
In the larger battles of life, how can Truth lose when she has men like Gandhi and Martin Luther King as her advocates and champions?
Falsehood Has Many Adherents and Followers, Truth Only a Few
The fact is not that in the battle of life Truth loses and Falsehood wins. The fact is that Falsehood has many friends, followers, practitioners and advocates, Truth has very few.
Daring to Speak the Truth Has Become the Test of Our Times
The tragedy of our times is not that Falsehood wins and Truth loses. The real tragedy is how few people seem to care about Truth or dare to speak it.
Islam Abhors Senseless Violence and Shameless Lies
Islam may be a lot of things. But a champion, advocate, instigator or friend of senseless Violence it is not.
Nor does Islam use lies, fraud and tricks of any kind as part of its repertoire in dealing with others — or with anything.
And those who say Islam is or does any of these things are most likely inveterate liars, or total ignoramuses, or, quite likely, both.
The Eternal Flame of Truth Sets Alight Many a Heart in All Ages
Men like Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (may God bless them all) are stars that are aflame with divine fire.
It is sparks flying from the eternal flame of that Burning Bush that set alight the hearts and minds of men like Gandhi, Lincoln, King, Jefferson and Paine in all ages and places.
Gandhi and Martin Luther King Stood for Truth in Their Time
When Truth has advocates like Gandhi and Martin Luther King, how can it possibly lose?
Truth Is Best Defence of Islam against False Propaganda
In the face of all the falsehood and propaganda against Islam and Muslims, the best defence, as they say, is Truth.
How Rare Is the Authentic Voice of Truth in Defence of Islam
The tragedy of modern times is not that there is so much hate and malicious propaganda let loose from so many different directions against Islam and Muslims.
The real tragedy is how few truly authentic and credible voices there are that are able to articulate the Truth about Islam and Muslims using the best and the most effective methodology that Truth requires and deserves.
Islam Is Not after People’s Wealth
When some rich people think we are after them for their wealth, here is what we say to them: Go home, give all your money away to someone else, or put it all safely away in a “Lockbox,” as former vice-president Al Gore would call it, and then come and join us and work with us.
If you like what we say and do, stay with us. If not, go back to where you came from and live happily ever after.
How hard is that to understand?
