Islam was not spread by the Sword

BY SHEIKH ABU ISLAM YUSUF SHAQEERO. This article has been reproduced from Islamic Revival. The least that can be said regarding the statement that Islam was spread by the sword is that it is a statement that holds no credibility. The enemies of Islam have attempted to pass this off to non-thinking Muslims where they claim the objective of fighting is to make people enter Islam by way of force, even though the falseness of this view is as clear as the sun.

JESUS: Man, Messenger, Messiah

BY HAMZA TZORTZIS. Nearly two billion Christians and over 1.5 billion Muslims believe in him, yet Jesus is perhaps the most misunderstood and misrepresented person in history. This talk demystifies Jesus – his life, teachings, personality and mission. It highlights commonalities but also examines philosophical and theological differences between Christianity and Islam.

PREVENT: “He (Allah) makes their actions come to nothing”

The sickening interrogation of an 8-year-old Muslim boy by Britain’s Thought Police aka Counter-Terrorism Officers has rightly caused uproar in the Muslim community. For years, senior figures within the Muslim community have been warning about the true aims of Prevent which are to destroy Islamic values and replace them with secular liberal “British” values. This latest case proves beyond doubt that this is the case.

Islamic Judicial Principles relevant to the Asia Bibi Case

The case of Asia Bibi, a Christian who was sentenced to death in Pakistan for alleged blasphemy against the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, has thrown the spotlight on Islamic law (sharia) and its judiciary. Predictably the west has used the case to attack sharia as barbaric and label Islamic courts as kangaroo courts where no justice is served. The status of non-Muslims living under Islamic rule is also under fire where they are viewed as an oppressed minority subject to the tyranny of the Muslim majority.

Sinéad O’Connor reverts to Islam: “They are the people guided by their Lord. They are the ones who have success.”

Sister Shudada’ Davitt (formerly Sinéad O’Connor) has accepted Islam saying ‘This is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey’. أُولٰئِكَ عَلىٰ هُدًى مِن رَبِّهِم ۖ وَأُولٰئِكَ هُمُ المُفلِحونَ “They are the people guided by their Lord. They are the ones who have success.” (Al-Baqara, 2:5) This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim. This is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey. All scripture study leads to Islam. Which makes all other scriptures redundant. I will be given (another) new name. It will be Shuhada’ — Shuhada’ Davitt (@MagdaDavitt77) October 19, 2018 Islam rejects blind faith and throughout the Holy Qur’an, Allah commands human beings to contemplate on His creation so they can come to the natural conclusion that all things are created by Allah (Most High). حم تَنزيلُ الكِتابِ مِنَ اللَّهِ العَزيزِ الحَكيمِ إِنَّ فِي السَّماواتِ وَالأَرضِ لَآياتٍ لِلمُؤمِنينَ وَفي خَلقِكُم وَما يَبُثُّ مِن دابَّةٍ آياتٌ لِقَومٍ يوقِنونَ وَاختِلافِ اللَّيلِ وَالنَّهارِ وَما أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ مِنَ السَّماءِ مِن رِزقٍ فَأَحيا بِهِ الأَرضَ بَعدَ مَوتِها وَتَصريفِ الرِّياحِ آياتٌ لِقَومٍ يَعقِلونَ …
