The Burden of Proof – Atheism and Islam

Recently, I have been watching, debates, discussions, and lectures that treat about the subjects of Atheism and Islam. On the side of the proponents of Atheism, you find people like Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Lawrence Krauss, Alex O’Connor, and many, many...

Atheism: Proof by Contradiction?

Atheism: Proof by Contradiction?

Atheism is deemed to be liberating, scientific, and open-minded; it couldn’t be anything further than all that. Liberating! From what? Religion; atheism became a way of life on its own. From the “clutches” of God; what worse feeling to know that your death is your...

Why do we do Things the Way we do Them? – Sunnah

Why do we do Things the Way we do Them? – Sunnah

Unfortunately, I hear more and more Muslims say: “Why should I pray five times a day if Allah knows what’s in your heart?” or the classic: “It is the intention that counts.” It is true that it is the intention that counts; the first Hadith in most Hadith books is “The...

Time off

Time off

For those used to following this blog, you may have noticed that I’m not posting on a weekly basis as I used to. This is for one specific reason… I’m on vacation!!! : ) However, being on vacation does not just mean fun and relaxation, it is also a time to think...

Allahu-Akbar

Allahu-Akbar

Yeah! Unfortunately, people think this is what Muslims say before they blow themselves up. These words are much, much greater (literally) than these stereotypes. These words translate to: Allah is greater. Now, when someone does Jihad (battles in the way of Allah), he...

His-Story of Hajj

His-Story of Hajj

A long, long time ago, about 4000 years ago (and Allah knows best), at the time of the prophet Ibrahim, four events took place that changed the course of history for all Muslims; events that gave rise to one of the pillars of Islam: Hajj (pilgrimage). As-Safa and...

Men have the Right or the Responsibility?

Men have the Right or the Responsibility?

This might be the most contested area towards Islam altogether: Men have authority over women. Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly...

Inheritance

Inheritance

The laws that discuss inheritance are very, very, very specific in Islam. Many verses in the Quran and Hadith discuss this topic. It is a set practice that has to deal with fractions, kinship, and faith. There are a library of books on this subject, in Arabic and all...

People judge me by what I wear – Hijab

People judge me by what I wear – Hijab

As the adage goes: Do not judge a book by its cover. Apparently, this saying does not apply to Muslim women. People shouldn’t make assumptions about a person based on their attire. But don’t get me wrong; wearing the Hijab is an open expression of a woman’s Islam....

History repeats its Injustice

History repeats its Injustice

The Holocaust that was perpetrated during WWII was one of the worst massacres throughout history. Not a week goes by (in North America) without hearing, reading, or seeing about it on the radio, in the newspapers, or on an ad. This is only normal, a denomination that...

Wives in Islam

Wives in Islam

Last week, we discussed about mothers in depth, but what about wives? They have their place too, right!?! Let’s just start with: And of His signs is that He created for you from yourselves mates that you may find tranquillity in them; and He placed between you...
