The Many Faces of Islam | RIA Novosti

#islam #womensrights #europe According to Alexander Ignatenko 2011, “Yevgeny Shestakov’s Discussion Club: A joint project of Rossiiskaya Gazeta and the Valdai International Discussion Club

As Muslims become an increasingly prominent part of Europe’s social landscape, sociologists and politicians try to understand how non-Muslim Europeans feel about Islam, as well as what Muslim communities make of the continent’s native values and lifestyles.

As a result of globalization, a burka-clad girl from some backwater Afghan or Turkish village can now find herself inhabiting the same space as female college student in Paris sporting a bare midriff. What role does Islam play in the West today? Is its influence possible to manage?” Read more > http://en.rian.ru/valdai_op/20110128/162344419.html

Ramadan Mubarak!! Eid Mubarak!!!

allah_swtAsalaam alaikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatuh my Muslim brothers and sisters around the world. As we come upon the end of Ramadan and our holy fast I would like to give praise the brave brothers and sisters who take up the struggle around the world. RAMADAN MUBARAK EID al-FITR!! An accumulation of years being on the straight and narrow path (Salat and Transcendental Meditation TM) seeking wisdom and truth through positive thinking and positive actions.

The “Koran by Heart” an HBO Documentary aired on the first day of Ramadan and was a wonderful way to start the fast and holy month. According to HBO 2011, “In Egypt over 100 kids from 70 countries compete annually in the world’s oldest Holy Qu’ran memorization contest.” It’s amazing. I know 8 or 10 chapters from The Holy Qu’ran. The kids memorize the entire Holy Qu’ran between 5 and 10 years old Insha Allah. Amazing!

Unfortunately our brothers and sisters in Syria, Libya Egypt and other countries had to suffer through this 2011 Ramadan. May Allah bless their souls and continue to protect and provide sustenance for the survivors.

“Faces of the Fallen” | Washington Post

‎”Faces of the Fallen” U.S. service members who died in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom http://wapo.st/iwLURJ My comment: God bless their souls. I clicked on at least three random members faces on the “Faces of the Fallen” list posted by the Washington Post and each of their profiles appears on the next page. Each one 22 years old, 24 years old and 22 years old respectively.

The Bush administration started the wars and the Obama administration continues it – based some truth, partial truth’s and lies.

These service men and women gave their lives for their country and us Americans. Show them some respect. These are the people who should be recognized and jubilant cheers, and praise should be given to them for sacrificing their lives for us. And all we can do in return for their sacrifice is act like crazed fools and celebrate the death of one man.

In my opinion Americans who celebrate and say derogatory remarks are basically just like the enemy. Cheering death, showing inner hatred, and ignorance. Not to mention it only incites those bad people to attempt to avenge his death. We need to expend our resources on getting the rest of our American service members home. Safely then act the jubilant fool for the living and the American service members that sacrificed their young lives for our freedom.

According to Anne Barnard 2010, “Not everyone in the Cairo lecture hall last February was buying the imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s message. As he talked of reconciliation between America and Middle Eastern Muslims — his voice soft, almost New Agey — some questioners were so suspicious that he felt the need to declare that he was not an American agent.” Continued here > http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/22/nyregion/22imam.html?_r=1&hp #cordoba #imam #feisalabdulrauf #nymosque #muslim #islam @hashimmusic @jerrycallistejr
