A few days ago, some people sent out e-mails amongst Muslims, with a link to a WIRED magazine article headed, “Report: U.S. Muslim Terrorism Was Practically Nil in 2012“. Accompanying comments noted how Muslims were really not violent despite current perceptions. The e-mails did nothing to please me because I saw that the focus was still on us Muslims. To me it should not be a matter of note if Muslims were less violent than expected; a matter of general note should be the state of terrorism or, of violence across the board, without a “Muzlem” sub-category…and no other faith sub-category.
Normally, when I receive an e-mail with a link and “Must See!!!”, without any further explanations, I delete it because I do not have the time to check it out to see if the link will actually lead me to an interesting site where I might learn something. I figure if the sender does not have the time to explain what s-he is sending, then it is not worth my time to read it either.
This time, I received an e-mail saying, ” Innovation in the Religion -’Christmas’, Birthdays’“. Inside was a comment:
Here is one of many Lectures provided by Sheik, Dr. Bilal Philips, on the topic of Innovations in our Religion
“Innovation” as used in Islam, is a re-designing of the religion in a way that is different from the Quran. I had to learn more…
With Christmas approaching, I was once again, seeing opinions flying around that it is “Haram” (forbidden) to celebrate Christmas or, even to respond to someone’s “Merry Christmas”. Not just Haram, it is actually a rejection of Islam to do so!
I also wanted to see what was being identified as “innovation in our religion (Islam)”. Continue reading

Happy Independence Day, my fellow Americans!
Today is the day when the British yoke was lifted off one of The Empire’s colonies and America began its journey to becoming the pre-eminent nation among all nations. Today was when the British Empire approached its zenith (Q: Why did the sun never set on the British Empire? A: because even God did not trust the English in the dark).
American started with great principles, the Declaration of Independence listed a host of grievances that forced the oppressed colonists to break away from their distanced King. In 1787, the new nation put together a constitution to provide the framework within which their ideal state wads to operate. Two years later, The Bill of Rights (originally ten articles) was adopted into the constitution, providing for the rights of everyone in the United States. Over time, more articles were added until the last one so far (Article 22), was added in 1992.
Wonderful as the constitution is, the country is not without its controversies and contradictions. Continue reading
