We live in a time of confusion and where it’s openly accepted to spew hatred , prejudice, and racist remarks . I did a survey if it’s socially acceptable to stereotype Muslims. The majority said no but if I the researcher was not wearing a headscarf and didn’t apparently look Muslim would they give me a different answer? Ideal vs reality. Reality right now projects that it is socially acceptable to stereotype especially when surveys say Americans have unfavorable views of Muslims. Where does this come from? Media and the hands of extremists making it harder to present Islam the way it was formed on beauty and tolerance.
Results of survey coming soon.

Your soul. Your fingertips. Your unique creation, picked out in time. You were made by Allah before he created this earth because everything is written 50,000 years before! ( 1 day in the sight of Allah is equal to 1,000 years) SubhanAllah your heart belongs to Allah never give it to anyone -Maryaminayaat
It is very sad and tragic what has happened in Orlando and what these monsters are doing. Those who have committed these acts of terror will be forever criminals in the sight of Allah and humanity,their actions should not fall on those who actually practice Islam. Their burdens of those who they have murdered will be heavy on the day of Judgement, and they will only be known as monsters in this life. They have nothing to do with humanity or any religion for that matter.
“Narrated ‘Abdullah (RA): The Prophet (SAW) said,’None (no human being) is killed or murdered (unjustly), but a part of responsibility for the crime is laid on the first son of Adam who invented the tradition of killing (murdering) on the earth.(It is said that he was Qabil-Cain)'[Sahih Al-Bukhari 9/6867].”(Al-Hilali, 112)”Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar (RA): The Prophet (SAW) said,’ After me (i.e., after my death) do not become disbelievers by striking (cutting) the necks of one another'[Sahih Al-Bukhari, 9/6868].”(Al-Hilali, 112)
Allah has made one innocent soul equivalent to the entire mankind, every single person who has walked this earth is equivalent to one soul. This is how special Allah has made His creation, regardless if they are Muslim or Non-Muslim,”Whoever kills another one without justifiable cause, surely he is killing all of Humanity. And whoever saves the life of another one, surely he saves all of Humanity.” (Surah Al-Ma’aidah: Ayah 32)
Islam is about Justice as the scholar Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya said if you see cruelty know that it is the opposite of Islam. This beautiful deen, has overwhelming answers to life, the more you read the more you end up in tears because you truly see through the fog of ignorance and misinformation how infinitely merciful Allah our Lord is to His creation. Allah and His messengers have established this Deen called Islam to remove the evil within ourselves and to promote the fight for love, a constant war between good and evil until the last day. Those who submit to the teachings of Islam, would dare never to kill even an animal or tree unjustly, even during the time of the Prophet when after 13 years of persecution the Muslims were allowed to defend themselves, the only nation who practiced strict guidelines in war were the Muslims, “Prophet issued them instruction that they must not kill a child or woman under any circumstances”(Muhammad man and Prophet , 439). You can look at any part of History when it comes to war and will see women, children, examples such as: Crusades, Mongols, Secular wars, even till this day no regard for innocent civilians. It is also clear in all the Abrahmic faiths that suicide is an act of damnation, let alone killing innocence during the process. The Qur’an also discusses this,
“And do not kill yourselves [or one another]. Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful.”(Surah Nisa, Ayah 29)
Islam changed history and provided a foundation for other nations to do so. These teachings will remain for those who fear Allah and the Last day. Those who claim they follow Islam clearly are taken out of its fold when they violate these laws and have no regard for Allah’s creation. Islam is not just about prayer, and fasting, you could pray 24/7 and it would be void if you do not give Allah’s creation its due right. This is the beauty of Islam the rights of everything has the highest degree in this way of life. Allah is swift to take account, and we are accountable for everything we do, say, and especially how we treat His beloved servants. May Allah grant justice for these innocent souls and ease the pain of their loved ones, Allahuma ameen.
I leave you with one verse to ponder and reflect,
“O ye who believe! Stand out firmly For God, as witnesses To fair dealing, and let not The hatred of others To you make you swerve To wrong and depart from Justice. Be just : that is Next to Piety: and fear God. For God is well-acquainted With all that ye do.”(Surah Al-Maida, Ayah 8)
Please fellow Muslims, especially hijabis, stay safe. Be cautious. Be aware. Be alert. Protect yourselves by carrying pepper spray or even a taser. Have them always with you just in case. I hope you never have to use them but have your precautions. You never know what could happen. Today, I was threatened for the […]
May Allah protect all our sisters Allahuma ameen. Practicing the deen in this era of islamaphobia will grant us more reward in sha Allah, because as the prophet ﷺ said this is the time where holding onto Islam is like holding onto hot coals.
