Why I Dont Celebrate Valentines Day

Asslam Alaikum, i know it has been ah while and i am sorry for that College started up again and i have been busy. but today i would like to talk about why the Holiday of valentines is haram!

1. In Islam, the festivals are clearly defined and well established, and no additions or subtractions may be accepted. They are an essential part of our worship and there is no room for ijtihaad or personal opinion. They have been prescribed for us by Allah and His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said: “Festivals are part of the laws, clear way and religious ceremonies of which Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): ‘To each among you, We have prescribed a law and a clear way [al-Maa’idah 5:48] ‘For every nation We have ordained religious ceremonies which they must follow’ [al-Hajj 22:67] like the qiblah (direction faced in prayer), prayer and fasting. So there is no difference between joining them in their festival and joining them in their other rituals. Agreeing with the whole festival is agreeing with kufr. Agreeing with some of their minor issues is the same as agreeing with them in some of the branches of kufr.

Festivals are the most distinctive things by which religions are told apart, so whoever celebrates their festivals is agreeing with the most distinctive rituals of kufr. Undoubtedly going along with them in their festivals may in some cases lead to kufr. Dabbling in these things, at the very least, is a sin. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) referred to the fact that every nation has its own festivals when he said: ‘Every nation has its own Eid and this is our Eid’ (al-Bukhaari , 952, Muslim, 1892).” (al-Iqtidaa’, 1/471-472)

Because Valentine’s Day goes back to Roman times, not Islamic times, this means that it is something which belongs exclusively to the Christians, not to Islam, and the Muslims have no share and no part in it. If every nation has its own festivals, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said – “Every nation has its Eid” (narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim) – then this means that every nation should be distinguished by its festivals. If the Christians have a festival and the Jews have a festival, which belongs exclusively to them, then no Muslim should join in with them, just as he does not share their religion or their direction of prayer.

2. Celebrating Valentine’s Day means resembling or imitating the pagan Romans, then the Christian People of the Book in their imitation of the Romans in something that was not a part of their religion. If it is not allowed to imitate the Christians in things that really are part of their religion – but not part of our religion – then how about things which they have innovated in their religion in imitation of idol-worshippers?!

Imitating the kuffaar in general –whether they are idol-worshippers or People of the Book – is haraam, whether that imitation is of their worship – which is the most serious form – or of their customs and behaviour. This is indicated by the Qur'an, Sunnah and ijmaa’ (scholarly consensus):

(i) From the Qur'an: Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): “And be not as those who divided and differed among themselves after the clear proofs had come to them. It is they for whom there is an awful torment” [Aal ‘Imraan 3:105]

(ii) From the Sunnah: the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever imitates a people is one of them.” (narrated by Ahmad, 2/50; Abu Dawood, 4021) Shaykh al-Islam (Ibn Taymiyah) said: “This hadeeth at the very least indicates that it is haraam to imitate them, although the apparent meaning implies that the one who imitates them is a kaafir, as Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): ‘And if any amongst you takes them (as Awliyaa’ [friends and helpers]), then surely, he is one of them’ [al-Maa’idah 5:51].” (al-Iqtidaa’, 2/722-725)

(iii) With regard to ijmaa’, Ibn Taymiyah narrated that there was agreement that it is haraam to imitate the kuffaar in their festivals at the time of the Sahaabah (may Allah be pleased with them), and Ibn al-Qayyim narrated that there was scholarly consensus on this point. (See al-Iqtidaa’, 1/454; Ahkaam Ahl al-Dhimmah, 2/722-725) Allah has forbidden imitation of the kuffaar; He has described it as hateful and has warned against the consequences of that, in many aayahs, on many occasions, and in various ways, especially imitation of the kuffaar. Sometimes He does that by forbidding following them or obeying them; sometimes by warning against them or being deceived by their plots, following their opinions, or being influenced by their actions, conduct or attitude. Sometimes He does that by mentioning some of their characteristics that will put the believers off from them and from imitating them. Most of the warnings in the Qur'an refer to the Jews and hypocrites (munaafiqeen), then the People of the Book in general and the mushrikeen. Allah tells us in the Qur'an that imitating and obeying the kuffaar may constitute riddah (apostasy). Allah also forbids following them, obeying them, or following their whims and desires and bad characteristics. Prohibition of imitating the kuffaar is one of the basic principles of sharee’ah.

Allah sent His Messenger with guidance and the true religion so that it might prevail over all other religions, and Allah has perfected His religion for mankind: “This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion” [al- Maa’idah 5:3 – interpretation of the meaning]. Allah has made Islam cover all (human) interests at all times and in all places and for all people. So there is no need to adopt the ways of the kuffaar or imitate them. Imitation causes defects in the Muslim personality, such as feelings of inadequacy, inferiority, weakness and defeatism, then it leads to shunning and keeping away from the path and laws of Allah. Experience has shown that admiration for the kuffaar and imitation of them causes people to love them, have complete faith in them and take them as friends and helpers, and to reject Islam and its people, its heroes, its legacy and values, and become ignorant of all of that.

3. The purpose of Valentine’s Day in these times is to spread love between all people, believers and disbelievers alike. Undoubtedly it is haraam to love the kaafirs. Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): “You (O Muhammad) will not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allah and His Messenger (Muhammad), even though they were their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their kindred (people)…” [al-Mujaadilah 58:22] Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said: “Allah tells us that there is no believer who takes a kaafir as a close friend. Whoever takes a kaafir as a close friend is not a believer. Outward imitation may be taken as a sign of love, so it is haraam.” (al-Iqtidaa’, 1/490). 

4. The love referred to in this festival ever since the Christians revived it is romantic love outside the framework of marriage. The result of that is the spread of zinaa (fornication and adultery) and immorality. Hence the Christian clergy opposed it at some stage and abolished it, then it came back again. Most of the young people celebrate it because it lets them fulfil their desires, without thinking of the issues of imitation and resembling that are involved. Look at this tragedy, where they go so far as to commit major sins such as zinaa and the like, by imitating the Christians in something which is part of their worship and which may even be kufr.

Why is Dating Haram?

Hello All my Viewers and Salaam Alaikum to my Muslim viewers I feel that today's topic is of great Importance and Requires a day for this topic so for the last two days i have been doing muchreaserch on this topic and here are my Findings... Now before we continue i have been known to have dated while being Muslim so yes i am just as Sinful as all of you and im human so bear with me as i do my best to work on it also!

and from a Hadith to get us Started!

And the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “No man is ever alone with a (non-mahram) women but the Shaytaan is the third one present.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2165; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 1758)

Dating is getting to know each other. However the dating that is vogue in North America involves intimate relationship such as touching, kissing, petting, necking that ultimately results in pre-marital sex. This was not there in North America before the Second World War. The women used to wear long chaste dresses and their dating did not involve the close intimacy that we see today.
No premarital sex is allowed in Islam. Therefore, no dating is allowed on the premise that dating inevitably leads to premarital sex.
The choice of a marriage partner is one of the most important decisions a person will make in his or her lifetime.  It should be taken as seriously as any other major decision in life - with prayer, careful investigation, and family involvement. It is Islamically permissible for a couple to meet in chaperoned, or group environment. In Islam consent is very important- that is neither women nor men can be married against their will.  Islam has given this freedom of choice to both young men and women - they cannot be forced into a marriage that they don't want. 

Successful indeed are the believers; who are reverent during their Contact Prayers (Salat). And they avoid vain talk. And they give their obligatory charity (Zakat). And they maintain their chastity. Only with their spouses, or those who are rightfully theirs, do they have sexual relations; they are not to be blamed. Those who transgress these limits are the transgressors.  Qur'an 23:1-7

And tell the believing women to subdue their eyes, and maintain their chastity. They shall not reveal any parts of their bodies, except that which is necessary. They shall cover their chests, and shall not relax this code in the presence of other than their husbands, their fathers, the fathers of their husbands, their sons, the sons of their husbands, their brothers, the sons of their brothers, the sons of their sisters, other women, the male servants or employees whose sexual drive has been nullified, or the children who have not reached puberty. They shall not strike their feet when they walk in order to shake and reveal certain details of their bodies. All of you shall repent to GOD, O you believers, that you may succeed.  Qur'an, 24:31

There are clear verses in the Quran against the natural results of dating; from the seemingly innocent kiss to the more obvious. According to the Qur'anic commands unmarried men and women should maintain their chastity until marriage. (5: 5,  23: 5-7, 24: 3-0-31, 70: 29-331).  

Is it wrong for two people of the opposite sex to be very good friends at school and outside of school? Dr. Muzammil Siddiqui answers " Muslims should have good elations with all people, males as well as females. At school, at work, in you neighborhood etc. you should be kind and courteous to everyone. However, it is not allowed in Islam to take a non-mahram person or persons of the opposite gender as a very close friend.  
Such friendship often leads to Haram. In the Qur’an, Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala mentioned that good men and women are those who marry, do not have fornicating relationships and do not have “paramours” (“akhdan” see al-Nisa’ 4:25; al-Ma’idah 5:5). “Akhdan” are “sweethearts” or for a man a “mistress” and for a woman a “lover”. The Prophet - peace be upon him - said, whenever two strangers of the opposite gender are alone with each other, Satan becomes the third one between them. (al-Tirmidhi, 1091).  (1)

 Halal Dating
It is a common thing to see a white woman marrying a man from a Muslim country. A question arises as to how they met each other before their marriage? Was it a marriage arranged by their parents?

They had probably met at work and dated each other. In the past Muslims did not date because of arranged marriages. Are parents in North America going to arrange the marriages of their young children as is done in some Islamic countries?

In Islamic countries there are matrimonial brokers and agents who work to match the brides and bridegroom.  Parents have the support of the community in finding spouses for their children. Relatives, networking, social gatherings particularly weddings, make arranging marriages easier. In the United States, parents are left alone and cut off from these networks.

  In an arranged marriage, a Muslim family usually investigates the prospective candidate further - talking with teachers, professors, employers, friends, family, Imams, colleagues, etc. to learn about his or her character.

 "Young American Muslims have come up with creative solutions to dating--and they fall into roughly three categories. The first group is "Strict Muslims" who date halal (in an Islamically permissible style). The second group I call "Eid Muslims," because many are not strict in practice and attend mosques only on holidays. While technically they are dating haram (unlawfully in Islam), without chaperones, they're keeping physical intimacy to a minimum and parental involvement at a maximum. The third group dates "Sex and the City"-style (definitely haram), openly and freely leading a non-Islamic lifestyle, having premarital sex sometimes in a series of monogamous relationships. " 

So even after all this evidence that shows dating in islam is not allowed i still pesonaly think that if you are with her Walli and her and you DO NOT TOUCH in any fashion then this means of dating is allowed. because whats wrong with going to the movies or going out to supper with a Muslimah your intreasted in? i mean if her Walli is there with you i dont see anything wrong with it. However im not Sheikh and this is all my Personal Oppinions right here but i honestly think it is important you have such dates to get to know eachother before marrige. So inshallah i have made some sort of Impression on you and that you read it All. May Allah bless you and keep you safe inshAllah. Aameen.

Is Music Haram?

The question of music being haram or not in Islam will depend on many things. However, some Muslim scholars have clearly mentioned that the type of music that is haram is that which arouses bad desires. They claim that singing should not be accompanied by excessiveness in anything, something that is prohibited like nakedness and alcohol and it should comply with the Islamic teachings and ethics.

It is reported that many Companions of the Prophet (may Allah be pleased with them) as well as second-generation Muslim scholars used to listen to singing and did not see anything wrong with it. As for the ahadith, which have been reported against singing, they are all weak and have been shown by researchers to be unsound.
The jurist Abu Bakr al-'Arabi says, "No sound hadith is available concerning the prohibition of singing," while Ibn Hazm says, "All that is reported on this subject is false and fabricated " However, since singing is in many cases associated with drinking parties and nightclubs, many scholars have declared it to be haram or at least makruh. They state that singing constitutes that kind of idle talk which is mentioned in the ayah, And among the people is the one who buys idle talk (at the expense of his soul) in order to lead (people) astray from the path of Allah without knowledge, holding it in mockery; for such there will be a humiliating punishment. (31:6) Says Ibn Hazm: This verse condemns a particular behavior, that of doing something to mock the path of Allah. Anyone who does this is an unbeliever; if he even should buy a copy of the Qur'an, doing so in order to make it the object of his mockery and thereby leading people astray, he would be an unbeliever. It is this type of behavior, which is condemned by Allah and not the idle talk in which one may indulge for mere relaxation, without intending to lead people astray from the path of Allah.

there are some limitations to be observed in the matter of singing:
  • 1. The subject matter of songs should not be against the teachings of Islam. For example, if the song is in praise of wine, and it invites people to drink, singing or listening to it is haram.
  • 2. Although the subject matter itself may not be against the Islamic teachings, the manner of singing may render it haram; this would be the case, for example, if suggestive sexual movement accompanied the singing.
  • 3. Islam fights against excess and extravagance in anything, even in worship; how, then, can it tolerate excessive involvement with entertainment? Too much time should not be wasted in such activities; after all, what is time but life itself? One cannot dispute the fact that spending time in permissible activities consumes time, which ought to be resaved for carrying out religious obligations and doing good deeds. It is aptly said, "There is no excess except at the expense of a neglected duty."
  • 4. Each individual is the best judge of himself. If a certain type of singing arouses one's passions, leads him towards sin, excites the animal instincts, and dulls spirituality, he must avoid it, thus closing the door to temptations.
  • 5. There is unanimous agreement that if singing is done in conjunction with haram activities—for example, at a drinking party, or if it is mixed with obscenity and sin—it is haram.

The Best Ummah- this post was taken from www.khilafah.com

Asslam Alaikum,
   so i was planning on writting my own opinion of how i think we need to move past our difrences with the Shia and the Sufi Muslims to acheive the greater vistory for the muslim people by uniting our muslim Ummah into a strong powerful Nation under one banner, however i realised i do not know enough of this topic to formulate my own idea on the subject in a manner that is both proper and well thought out. So instead i went about for 2 hours and read many Articles untili found this one which is most linked to kind of what i belive and so i hope you enjoy, i promise tomorrow when i discuss about weather  "Listening To Music Is Haram Or Not?" the Post will be of my own writting and personal opinions Because i am quite pasionet about that topic. so enjoy thr Article i found and do not hesitate to ask me question in the comments or email me directly.

Allah سبحانه وتعالى says in the Holy Qur’an:
كُنتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللّهِ
“You are the best ummah singled out for mankind: you enjoin what is right (ma’roof), forbid what is wrong (munkar), and believe in Allah.”  1
Allah سبحانه وتعال could have created us at any time in history and as part of any nation. Yet He سبحانه وتعال out of his infinite mercy created us as part of the best and most honoured nation ever to inhabit the earth. We are also the last and final ummah until the Day of Judgment.
The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم said, “You are the final of seventy nations, you are the best and most honoured among them to Allah.” 2
Our ummah has been given blessings that no other ummah before us has been given.
The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم said, “I was given what no other Prophet before me was given.” We said, “O Messenger of Allah! What is it” He said, “I was given victory by fear, I was given the keys of the earth, I was called Ahmad, the earth was made a clean place for me (to pray and perform Tayammum with it) and my Ummah was made the best Ummah.” 3
Our beloved Messenger صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم gave us the glad tidings that the Muslim ummah would be a large part of the inhabitants of Paradise.
Abdullah bin Mas’ud said, “The Messenger of Allah said to us, “Does it please you that you will be one-fourth of the people of Paradise?” We said, Allahu Akbar!' He added, “Does it please you that you will be one-third of the people of Paradise. We said, Allahu Akbar!' He said, “I hope that you will be half of the people of Paradise.” 4
The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم said: “The people of Paradise are one hundred and twenty rows, this Ummah takes up eighty of them.” 5
Our ummah was given salams from the Friend of the Most Merciful (Khaleel ur-Rahmaan) and Father of the Prophets, Ibraheem (alaihi salam) on the night of the ‘isra. Ibraheem (alaihi salam) gave our ummah some valuable advice on how to increase our share of trees in Paradise as blessing for us.
The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم said: “I met Ibraheem on the night that I was taken on the Night Journey, and he said: ‘O Muhammad, tell your ummah that Paradise is a land whose soil is good and its water is sweet. It is an empty plain, which will be planted with Subhaan Allah, Al-Hamdu lillah, La ilaha illa-Allah and Allahu akbar.’” 6
One of the distinctions between our ummah and previous nations is our strict obedience to Allah سبحانه وتعال and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم. During the Battle of Badr when the Muslims were informed that Quraysh were amassing a huge, well equipped army against them, Al-Miqdad bin ‘Amr got up and said:
“O Messenger of Allah! Proceed where Allah directs you to, for we are with you. We will not say as the Children of Israel said to Musa (as): ‘Go you and your Lord and fight and we will stay here.’ Rather we shall say: ‘Go you and your Lord and fight and we will fight along with you.’ By Allah! If you were to take us to Bark Al-Ghimad, we will still fight resolutely with you against its defenders until you gained it.” 7
The reason we were made the best ummah is stated in the ayah:
كُنتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللّهِ
“You are the best ummah singled out for mankind: you enjoin what is right (ma’roof), forbid what is wrong (munkar), and believe in Allah.”  8
Qatadah said, “We were told that Umar bin Al-Khattab recited this Ayah [3:110] during a Hajj that he performed, when he saw that the people were rushing. He then said, ‘Whoever likes to be among this [praised] Ummah, let him fulfil the condition that Allah set in this Ayah.’” 9
Enjoining ma’roof and forbidding munkar
Islam consists of ma’roofat (pl. of ma’roof) which Allah سبحانه وتعال has ordered us to establish, and munkaraat which He سبحانه وتعال ordered us to abstain from and remove. The head and the highest ma’roof is the belief in Allah سبحانه وتعال and the rest of the pillars of the Islamic ‘Aqeedah.
The head of the munkaraat (pl. of munkar) and its most evil manifestation is kufr in all its forms. Allah سبحانه وتعال ordered that people must avoid the munkar, deter others from it and warn others of falling into its snare.
Today, we witness the implementation of kufr systems and laws in our countries. Munkaraat are widespread in the Muslim world with our lands occupied, the daily spilling of Muslim blood, stealing of our wealth and widespread corruption headed by the puppet regimes ruling our lands. Many of the Islamic obligations are also neglected such as ruling by Islam, jihad, implementation of the penal code (hudud) and carrying da’wah to the world.
In this reality the obligation of enjoining ma’roof and forbidding munkar is a vital issue for the ummah that requires the utmost seriousness and sacrifice. Allah سبحانه وتعال has ordered not just individuals to undertake this obligation but also groups and the Khaleefah of the Muslims. In the absence of the Khaleefah the groups must work to appoint him so that he can practically enjoin the mar’oof and forbid the munkar on society.
This Ramadan we must contemplate on the huge blessing Allah سبحانه وتعال has bestowed upon us by making us part of the best ummah ever created. As Umar bin Al-Khattab said we must fulfil the condition for being the best ummah i.e. that we enjoin the mar’oof and forbid the munkar.
However, knowledge precedes action. So before we can enjoin the mar’oof and forbid the munkar we must gain knowledge on the ma’roofat and munkaraat so we can implement them on ourselves first. We must fulfil all the Islamic obligations and abstain from all the Islamic prohibitions. Once we have this knowledge we can call others to abide by the ma’roof and abstain from the munkar. The most important part of this work today is working to establish the Khilafah that is responsible for implementing all the ma’roofat and preventing all the munkaraat on society.
For this reason we strongly advise all the Muslims to download the book The Da’wah to Islam and The Method to Re-establish the Islamic State by Sheikh Ahmad Mahmoud and study it during this blessed month of Ramadan. We advise all the Muslims to gain knowledge on this vital issue and major Islamic obligation so we can fulfil our duty to Allah سبحانه وتعال and attain His pleasure and the reward of Paradise that He سبحانه وتعال has promised to the believers. Neglecting this obligation of working to re-establish the Khilafah is a major sin for which Allah سبحانه وتعال can punish severely in Hellfire.

Why Did I Revert?

Asslam Alaikum, So in this post ill discuss about how i came to know Islam and a little about my life before i had Islam but to get started lets look at a verse from the Qur'an.

Surat Al-Jinn (The Jinn)72:14

 And among us are Muslims [in submission to Allah ], and among us are the unjust. And whoever has become Muslim - those have sought out the right course.


So Lets begin shall we? why did i Revert to Islam? why would a young White American boy be lead to a religion widely hated by many? how has Islam changed my life? And what are the events that lead up to my reverting?

    So I guess the first thing to do is discuss a Little bit About myself. Hello all my birth name is Nicholas Michael Teausant but upon reverting changed my name to Asad Abdur Al-Raheem. You may Call me Nick,Ased, Or Papa Smurf I'll leave it up to you to decide. I am 20 years old and a Single Parent to a Beautiful 7 month(almost 8) baby girl Named Brooklyn and like me she also has an Arabic name which is A'isha. I was born but not raised in a small town called Lodi,California where i currently after many years live again. I was 5.5years old when my Parents got divorced,after about 1 year and then 4 more years after that my dad met a woman who would soon become my Step-mom. see my Dad met my step mom at work in Stockton,California where he was a delivery driver and she tested the blood. they got on great and blah blah blah one thing led to another and boom they got married. Now my step- mom was born and raised Catholic as was my father but i hadn't ever been to church before. When my father started dating this woman we started going to church and it was really the first time i ever heard of god, my father is a thinker he has no problem questioning things to find what he truly believes which is why when we moved to Des Monies, Iowa in 2005 i wasn't surprised when we changed churches.  but then again i was only in 5th grade so i didn't really care. we went to a Mormon church and got baptized and raised in the church for 3 months before my dad changed his mind and we started church "Hopping" as i call it because we moved churches so much. So it's safe to say it was okay to explore other religions, i mean the good thing about having moved almost every year of my life is i have come into contact with a lot of people from a lot of different faiths and beliefs. However it wasn't until i moved to Seattle, Washington did i meet my first dedicated Muslim...oh I've met them before in the past but the ones we have met as a family drank beer and ate pork so they were not..well lets leave it at they need to pray and really think about the Sunnah. So as you imagine this gave me a bit of a clouded Judgment on what Muslims were. And the same goes for my family Muslims were seen as trash,dirt a religion full of fakes and liars. but with the help of a Muslim friend i was able to slowly change the opinions of my family and myself he was/ still is one of the most dedicated Muslims that i know. 

     So the following year after Seattle i moved to Great Falls,Montana in 2011 where i took the Shahaddah for numerous reasons one of which was because i read a book called "Misquoting Jesus" written by Bart D. Ehrman. Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why is a book by Bart D. Ehrman, a New Testament scholar at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The book introduces lay readers to the field of textual criticism of the Bible. Ehrman discusses a number of textual variants that resulted from intentional or accidental manuscript changes during the scriptorium era.this book was such an Eye opener and i highly suggest you read it, if your christian and reading this be warned the contents of the book will shake your faith and everything you thought you knew. Another main Reason why i Reverted to Islam is because the Qur'an has NOT been changed the entire 1,400 years its been around and has stayed in its actual Arabic language unlike the bible which was written in Hebrew and Multiple other languages over hundreds of years. Here is yet Another thing i read the book "A Brief Illustrated guide to Understanding Islam" this book talks about all the scientific proofs that we didn't even know about until the last 60 years with modern science things that the bible could never even explain, how do you explain that? 

   So back to the Original Question why did i revert? 

Well with the help of a Turkish exchange student i had learned all about these proofs and well it helped that she was quite Attractive,lol. but no i saw how the Muslims WANTED to be in the Mosque they WANTED to obey the fast, how the men and woman are taught to respect each other and how we have to realise that Allah has the power over our lives and everything has been written out for us already. Islam has Brought me Peace,Happiness and closer knowing that i don't need to fear anything because someone is watching over me and because "For indeed, with hardship [will be] ease." Surah 94:5.

So in conclusion i became Muslim because i felt the impact on my life and my family even though most have persecuted me for my choices they all tell me each day they can see the change within me.

Giving Dawah

So hello all this is my first post so it shan't be too long i promise. Before I start let me begin with a quote from the Qur'an.

Surat An-Naĥl (The Bee) 16:125

"Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction, and argue with them in a way that is best. Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has strayed from His way, and He is most knowing of who is [rightly] guided."

To give proper Dawah you must have Proper Knowledge now i Reverted to Islam almost 2 years ago exactly i read hadith and Study Qur'an every day so my knowledge is growing however be advised what i discuss and my opinions on what i read are that of my own opinion i encourage you to visit a local Mosque and speak with an Imam if you have any questions that i may not know however i encourage you to ask me anyways and Inshallah i can help you with whatever you wish to know.  I'll be posting about what i have leaned today and how i have seen Allah affect my life today and if i come across a reading or hadith i don't understand ill discuss why i don't understand it. also why it doesn't make sense and only after i have asked an Imam and resolved my Issue/Questions.

i do not look to argue so if you have a valid question feel free to Email me at Nteausant@gmail.com 
However if you just want to Argue and fight i will not bother answering any of your questions i seek to Promote Islam without fighting.

I promote Jihad, Not terrorism and yes there is a difference. 

So inshallah i can be of some help.
