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)”. Read more »

I offer a list of electoral candidates that we support, after the list, there will be an explanation for reasons why. Note: Since these are Primary Elections, we will be willing to give the benefit of the doubt to candidates who have been asked, but have not yet signed The Pledge. We will take a much stronger position in the General Elections, against people who fail to sign The Pledge.
To begin with, Muslims have the same concerns as non-Muslims in choosing our political leaders…with one difference, we want to feel secure in this country. For Muslims, personal security, free from the prodding and persecutions that have beset us since 9-11, is probably the single overriding concern. We wish to be able to pursue our lives with the comfort and knowledge that we are going to be treated as equals in this country of equals and that we will be accorded the same rights and the same equal protections under the constitution, that are enjoyed by our fellow (non-Muslim) Americans.
Unfortunately, this is not so today… Read more »

This year, the Muslim month of Ramadan in the year 1433, begins on Friday, July 20 th 2012 . The Quran was first revealed to the Prophet Mohammed during this, the ninth month of the Muslim Lunar calendar, making it the holiest month for Muslims.
Ramadan is also one of four sacred months of the Muslim calendar, during which any form of warfare is forbidden (Quran 9:36). This is the month for not only physical, but even more importantly, spiritual cleansing for Muslims. Read more »

The week opened on Monday the 25th to another spine-chilling story of “Muzlems“, getting ready to kill masses of Freedom-loving Americans and I groaned for the umpteenth time!
Our ever-vigilant FBI has, it appears, conducted over a hundred investigations into Islamic extremists in the military…our military, can you imagine that? Er, sorry, that is suspected Islamic extremists in the military. There is a difference, you see. REAL extremists can be brought to trial and jailed, but suspected ones, simply get their lives destroyed with an investigation that might as well hang them afterwards; REAL Muslim extremists are hard to find, while suspected ones are everywhere!
The FBI’s attitude towards Islam and Muslims goes back to their training in which their focus was drawn to the fact that there were over 9000 (murderous) Muslims in the military. The FBI has been trained to target Islam, not terrorism. Read more »
There is so much mythology and fantasy around the so-called “Sharia Law” that a large number of states have now been involved in either passing laws against “Sharia Law” (under various euphemisms) or, have been involved in voting for the “ban” or, are currently discussing methods to ban “Sharia Law”( Map below is as of March 2012).
Going into details of Sharia and its application would require a separate, detailed article however, it is worth point out a few basic facts about Sharia and the hysteria being generated against it in the West, led by the US.
Sharia is a composite Read more »
