“They desire to extinguish Allah’s Light with their mouths but Allah will perfect His Light, though the disbelievers hate it.”

The following is based on a translation of Dr Fadhel al Samarrai’s Tafseer of Surah Saff. France’s Macron has issued a ‘republican values’ ultimatum to Muslim leaders, trying to force Muslims to deny Islam is a way of life containing solutions to all of life’s problems. He is also introducing identification numbers for Muslim children copying the Nazi policy which was applied to the Jews. This verse makes it crystal clear that no matter how much they try, Allah’s light (guidance) cannot be extinguished and Allah will ensure the Islamic message prevails.

KASHMIR CRISIS: Oh Pakistan Army! “Allah loves those who fight in His Way in ranks as a unified solid structure”

إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الَّذينَ يُقاتِلونَ في سَبيلِهِ صَفًّا كَأَنَّهُم بُنيانٌ مَرصوصٌ Allah loves those who fight in His Way in ranks as a unified solid structure. (As-Saff, 61:4) The following is a translation of Dr Fadhel al Samarrai’s Tafseer of Surah Saff.

Sajjid Javid enacts Quraysh’s Counter-Extremism Policy

I will not flinch from confronting extremism.’ Javid took aim at several Islamic activist organisations during his speech. Hizb ut-Tahrir, IHRC, MEND and CAGE were all mentioned.
