Alam

"The word ‘Alam' in the Arabic language is the name of something, which becomes the means for knowledge of another thing. Out of ‘Ilm comes the word ‘Alam into existence.

Now, ‘Alam' is the name of something through which you find out about another thing – gaining it’s knowledge. So, the world has been given the name ‘Alam, because if someone’s gazes are correct and thoughts are correct then everything of this world grants you the knowledge of Allah’s Rahmat and Qudrat-e-Qabila."

Love Tokyo Hate Tyranny

"And why should ye not fight in the cause of God and of those who are weak and oppressed?  men, women, and children, whose cry is: "Our Lord! rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from Thee one who will protect; and raise for us from Thee one who will help!" 
 Surah An-Nisa - The Women Verse 75

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.
I hope & pray that you are all maintaining good health and positive outlooks by the Will of All Mighty God. I haven't written in such a long while. There is allot happening in my life not to mention I'm struggling to decide the most important or relevant topics to discuss on here as you well know there are lots of important things going on in the world today!

Let me begin by speaking about the current situation taking place in Libya. By now Colonel Ghaddafi is surely befitting of the title of a tyrant ruler. He has caused suffering and killed many people in order to maintain his power as we see him lose grip of what he values most, he is evidently finding the reality of what he must have dreaded all along, isolation amongst his people and condemned to be a traitor to his nation.

God answers prayers, so let us all make a supplication for those people in Libya who are in need of help especially those individuals whose voices are not being heard. I hope that the bloodshed stops soon for the sake of the Libyan people, no nation should be subjugated to such oppressive force. Let us ask God All Mighty to give Ghaddafi what he has earned for himself baring in mind the pain he has caused upon the Libyan people.

This period has also seen a powerful tsunami generated by the largest earthquake in Japan's history, a land magnitude 6.0, slamming its eastern coast, sweeping away cars, homes and people. There are reports that over 9000 have been confirmed dead, and 16000 people are still reported missing.

We must all come together as brothers and sisters of humanity to do what we can to help and assist the people of Japan in the face of this disaster. We must extend our arms of compassion to those who have lost so much including their families. I am witnessing the people of Japan working together to help one another with such admiration. The Japanese Prime minister Naoto Kan deserves credit for projecting a progressive image of functionality in his country during this crisis of huge magnitude.

I want to conclude by reminding all my Muslim readers it is now that we must now be the change we hope to see in the world, The time is now to be the best we can be for the sake of our honor. We are people of Truth, people of Humanity & people of Good Faith. We must stand up to these tyrant leaders & be the force in which this world can be a better place.  It is essential we help our fellow citizens if we are to gain the reward of pleasing our Creator. The time is now to re-evaluate our Islamic obligation and understanding that politics is not actually an essential part to the practice of an individual’s Islam!

Prophet, may the peace and blessings of All Mighty God be upon him, told Hudhayfah “that if there was no clear leader of the Muslims to disengage from all the sects and cling to a private Islam. If he only practiced the five pillars, he would have salvation”.
Bukhari

This is a clear indication from an authentic source that by fulfilling pillars of our faith is enough for you. So brothers and sisters let us  live for All Mighty God and not just prepare to die for Him, let us be assets to our countries, towns and cities. Not for ourselves, but for our brothers and sisters in humanity throughout the globe since we owe them so much!

Greetings Earthlings

As'Salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatahu is the Muslim greeting translated as Peace be upon you and the Mercy of All Mighty God and His Blessings.


The response to this greeting would be:


Wa'Alaikum Salaam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatahu Which Translates as And unto you Peace and the Mercy of All Mighty God and His Blessings.


The Noble Prophet of Islam, Muhammed, my the peace and blessings of All Mighty God be upon him, has taught the believers of Islam that if they want to spread peace then this glad tiding is essential and whatever is received in a greeting (Salaam) to return it with more.
