Before judging a Muslim be fair and:
قبل أن تحكم علي أي مسلم كن محايد:

1-Listen to this person, and watch his doings.
1- أسمع منه هو شخصياً ، أستمع الي أفكاره ومعتقداته ولاحظ أفعله.

2-Compare his ideas and teachings with what is Islam and Prophet Mohammad PBUH ordered.
2-قم بمقارنة أفكاره ومعتقداته بما دعا له الإسلام.

3-If you think that his thoughts are typical to that of Islam and Prophet Mohammad PBUH, and then compare them with his doings; is he applying these teachings?
3- إذا تطابقت أفكاره ومعتقداته مع ما دعا له الإسلام فأنظر إلي أفعاله، هل هي متطابقة مع أفكاره ومعتقداته؟

4-If he is applying these teachings and sayings, so for sure represents Islam, if not then he calls himself a Muslim but doesn’t represent Islam.
4- إذا كانت أفعاله تطابق أفكاره ومعتقداته فهو يمثل الإسلام، إذا كانت تتناقض فهو يدعي أنه مسلم ولكن لا يمثل الإسلام..548574

Know Allah At the time of Ease | Shaykh Mustapha Al Majzoub (Rahimahullah)


Sheikh Mustapha Al Majzoub, our beloved Sheikh (May Allah Accept Him As A Shaheed) from Australia has been martyred while in the path of Allah in the oppressed cities of Syria, protecting the men, women and children from the tyranny of the Bashar Al Assad Regime.

In early April 2012, Mustapha travelled to Turkey as a humanitarian aid worker.

He was active in attending to the wounded Syrian refugees near the Turkish border. In addition, this work required him to cross the border into Syria to provide aid and assistance to those injured and unable to reach the border. On 20 August 2012, Mustapha was in North Syria when extensive shelling was administered by the Assad regime against its people. He was called on to assist the trapped and the injured. At approximately 1pm, he was struck and killed by a rocket explosion..

May Allah have mercy on his soul. We ask Allah to accept him as a Shaheed.

A Short Reminder: Know Allah at the time of Ease

Riots do nothing to promote religion of peace

I CONSIDER it is every individual’s right to practice the religion in which they believe but, I must admit that the actions of a few are causing me to place all Muslims in the same basket – that’s possibly illogical but it’s hard to think otherwise.

It is abhorrent to see kids who appear to be under five years old holding placards encouraging beheading.

These violent protesters can do nothing to promote the teachings of the Prophet, but they can cause immense damage to the way Islam is viewed in the mainstream society.

Ian Bruce, Burleigh Heads, Qld

ONE policy in urgent need of attention is a tightening of the checking of immigrants, particularly the 30 per cent of net arrivals coming from countries where the main religion is Islam. That is not to suggest a banning of Muslim immigrants but we surely need to reject immigrant applications from those judged as activists.

Additional action is needed to minimise the risk of home-grown terrorism by increasing existing programs designed to educate Muslim groups in the virtues of Western societies.

FREEDOM in Australia has the responsibility to act within the law and respect the safety of others around you as we go about our daily business. Freedom is also about freedom of speech and this is clearly not part of the Islamic protest movement in Sydney.

We allow people willingly into Australia we do not expect this in return. If Muslims do not like this I am sure they can return to the war torn countries they came from.

IT’S interesting that the unspeakable outrage of female genital mutilation, (reported in The Australian last week to have recently occurred in Sydney, “Charges laid over cutting of genitals”, 14/9) provoke no discernible protest from the Muslim community, but a D-grade undergraduate film, shown only in part on YouTube, whips many of them into a frenzy.

Richard Sallie, Nedlands, WA

WHAT a pity that Muslims here take one step forward only for such disturbing events to shunt them two steps backward. Their too-silent majority, wishing only to live out peaceful, productive lives, are too often dudded by their own extremists.

MUSLIM parents who involve their young children in street protests should be charged with child abuse. Think of the physical, mental, emotional and intellectual harm they are forcing on these little kids.

Sue Hunter, Port Melbourne, Vic

COMING on top of recent reports about police raids on suspected Islamic militants, this protest is all very unsettling. Muslim leaders in this country should be concerned that activities like those that took place over the weekend are divisive and harmful because they provide ammunition for extremists on both sides of the debate and will only harden public attitudes.

Anything that is likely to enhance feelings of xenophobia must be avoided because any form of violence, verbal or physical, that has its roots in racism or religious intolerance is counterproductive and dare I say unAustralian. We do not want any more Cronullas.

Robert Webb, Ormiston, Qld

OF 400,000 Muslims in Australia, we see not a finger lifted and not a word of condemnation from the imams or any others of them against these would-be murderers.

Plenty of them willingly protest against us, but where are those protesting for us?

Les Thompson, Kilmore, Vic

AS a Christian I am very upset at the mistreatment of Christians around the world, mainly by Muslims who have no problem with blaspheming my God without due public retribution.

TV programs daily misuse the names of the Christian God and of Jesus without Christians burning down the ABC. Does that mean we are happy about this infamy? Not at all, because in due course, God will take the appropriate judgment to deal with all offenders.

David Stevens, Park Ridge, Qld

THE Arab Spring is sure producing some interesting fruit – and it’s taking root right here in our backyard. Is the anti-Mohammed film to blame? Is it the fault of Guantanamo? Abu Ghraib? Is it still Bush’s fault? What about those Swedish cartoons?

Colonialism? The Crusades? Can we blame it all on Israel, again?

Take your pick, but don’t blame it on the practitioners of the religion of Peace. That would be a hate crime, intolerant and racist.

Mike Zaab, Sydney, NSW

UNTIL viewing the rioting Islamic community in Sydney, I believed that one’s religious beliefs were no impediment to living harmoniously in Australia. I was wrong. It is with regret that I now take a step to the Right.

OUR misplaced tolerance is to the cost of all, including our broad Muslim population.

Islam in Australia is failed by a political discourse too timid to take a stand against the playing out of ancient hatreds in the streets of Australia.

Violent protests are the true insult to Islam

The real challenge facing the Muslim world today is how to stop violent protesters from becoming the face of the religion. In order to do that, we need more Muslims to get rid of their indifference and speak against the misrepresentation of Islam. 

Research shows that the people behind “Innocence of Muslims,” the film which disrespects Islam and the Prophet Muhammad and set off riots across the Middle East after it was uploaded to YouTube, are nothing more than a few Islalmophobic individuals. They produced a very a low cost, low quality film which aims to mock the Prophet Muhammad, and present Islam as a violent and irrational religion.

The producers of the film were able to achieve more than what they desired or expected. It was not the film itself that had an impact on those watching, but rather the violent response of Muslims protesting the film in Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Sudan and other countries. These violent protests gave power to the producers. Without them, it is probably fair to guess that the film would not have gotten any attention or almost any views.

However, by now thousands of people watched the trailer due to the protestors. Since one of the goals of the film is to show Muslims as violent irrational people, the violent protestors confirmed the negative image of Muslims. Those who do not know much about Islam or Muslims are watching the protests on television; they see Muslims attacking embassies, and appearing angry and untrustworthy .

If we take a deeper look, I am convinced that the self-proclaimed Muslims attacking embassies and foreigners are the true enemies of Islam. It is they who are insulting the Prophet legacy more than any film or production. The real challenge facing Muslims today is how stop such people from becoming the face of Islam.

The film is disgusting and disrespectful, but should these protestors punish diplomats from foreign countries? Aren’t these diplomats guests that should be respected? One cannot fix a wrong with another wrong, and attacking Americans or foreigners to punish few individuals behind the film is a criminal act. Instead, a good Muslim would follow in the footsteps of Prophet Muhammad. The Prophet used to tell his followers not to respond to insults with insults, but rather to do good to those who insult. He said, “I have family that I do good to them, but they insult me, and I visit them and they don’t reciprocate. Therefore choose the better path. A person you have enmity with, be to him like a dear friend.” Perhaps self righteous Muslims who are violently protesting should take more time to learn about Islam, rather than use it in a disgraceful way.

According to the Hadith (saying of the Prophet), the Prophet said, “he who believes in God and the Last Day must honor his guest” (Sahih Bukhari). When the prophet was asked by other Muslims to pray against their unbeliever enemies, he responded. “I was not sent to curse but to be merciful” (Sahih Muslim).

One of the stories I grew up hearing in my Islamic school is about the Prophet’s Islamophobic neighbor. This person would leave his garbage outside the Prophet’s house every day without fail. One day, the neighbor was to sick to leave his garbage. The Prophet was so concerned for his neighbor that he went to visit him at his home in order to offer his assistance.

Now, as I watch the television stations and read the calling of some self-declared Imams to protest – to attack and kill – I ask myself why. Where did these people get their knowledge from? These self-righteous preachers and protestors are the ones insulting the Prophet and his legacy. While thousands of people are dying on a daily basis in Syria, these protestors seem more concerned with a crappy film than with innocent lives. Why aren’t they in streets protesting the massacres in Syria?

Muslims today face a challenge to protect Islam from radicals and ignorance. Preachers, leaders and Muslim communities must speak louder and louder against such violence. However, the ignorance is a result of an education failure. These protestors did not learn the Islam that teaches peace and love, but rather have gotten a corrupted version which calls for violence.

Yet in the midst of this depressing week, I found some inspiration. My encouragement came from Libya, the place where U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was killed last week. People came out and spoke up against the thugs and killers in the name of Islam. Some Muslims decided to stand up to those trying to brand Islam as a violent, intolerant religion. Most importantly, they were willing to take responsibility. During the protest, people held signs denouncing the murder of the American Ambassador. Other signs disowned the killers and apologized to the American people.

I found that the photo below generated much discussion on Facebook. Some took the negative route, comparing Muhammad to Jesus as if they were sworn enemies, while others claimed that this was a minority of Muslims who believe in peace and respect. What was most important for me is that people were inspired by this photo. Thousands of people liked and shared this photo because it strengthened hope in a future without religious enmity.

I believe the people in the photo represent the silent majority among Muslims. They represent a majority that needs to follow in the footsteps of the courageous ones who speak up and defend their faith. This is the kind of protest that honors Islam and the Prophet Muhammad. Now, we need more Muslims to toughen up, get rid of their indifference, get out and speak up for peace and against the misrepresentation of Islam.
