Very disappointed…

Go to google, type “murder by Muslim 2016,” and you’ll get thousands of results.

Now, go to google, type “murder by [insert other religion] 2016,” yea..kinda hard to find, right?

These kind of search results make me sick. I would rather not judge the whole on the actions of a few. It’s also saying that the murders all over the world that have occurred in 2016 were either by Muslims or atheist. This is simply not the case. There are bad people in every religion. There are terrible groups in religions that claim to be following the religion. This isn’t speculation, this is fact.

LISTEN TO THE FACTS, PEOPLE!

Stop being sheep and following the media/masses. Research. Don’t believe everything that you read or see on TV and the internet.

Just because someone claims to be Muslim does NOT mean that they follow Islam. I am a Muslim. I have read the Quran. I am an American. My parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents, and so on (as far back as we know) are/were American. (I’m not sure where I’m originally from.) I am white. I do NOT want to kill ANYONE for ANY reason–gay, black, white, Christian, Hindu, Mexican, Purple, Yellow, Satan-worshiper, etc. I AM the majority. 

There are 1.6 billion Muslims on the Earth. If Muslims wanted to kill you, you’d know it. There would be no debate on TV about whether Islam is good or bad.

Even if there were 16,000 terrorist attacks each year, which there’s not, that would still be less than .001% of the Muslim population. Are you really going to judge 1.6 billion people on the actions of a few?

Caring

So, I’m taking 18 hours in college, and I’m working about 25 hours every week. That’s about 43 hours, not including studying. I should be getting up early and going to bed tired everyday. But, lately I just can’t get up the energy to care. 

I should be graduating from college next May, then im getting married in June! I should be ecstatic! But I don’t know what’s wrong with me! 

I’ve been skipping class, and now it’s going to be hard to catch up. I’ve also called in to my new job TWICE! 

I’m going to try to get on the ball, but I’m just so tired of everything. I’ve been living in Georgia for 23 years now, and I want OUT! 

I’m gonna try to save up money with this job, so that I can travel this summer. I have to get excited about something. I need my spark back! I just need to find something that makes me truly happy again. 

(I can’t wait until I get my new foster kittens!) 

   
 

 

Debate Review: “What Was The True Faith of Jesus’ Disciples?” – Br. Ijaz Ahmad vs Rev. Steven Martins

I’m so happy that I’ve found this post. I converted to Islam last year, and this will help me explain some things to my *very unhappy* parents. Thank you.

Discover The Truth

I review a debate entitled “What Was The True Faith of Jesus’ Disciples?”

The debaters

Br. Ijaz Ahmad of Calling Christians

Rev. Steven Martins of Nicene International Ministries Canada.

I did the bulk of the review a while ago but never managed to finish it in the detail I would have liked but never got back to it through procrastination and other priorities I’ve quickly tidied up what I had and rolled it out.

“None of the Apostles could have written or sanctioned these stories about themselves” – Ijaz Ahmad

Were the Gospel Accounts eye-witness reports

Steven Martins’ approach was to draw upon the New Testament in his attempt to present what he believes the disciples believed. Steven believes the Gospels are the historical eye-witness records of  the disciples. This was rejected outright by Ijaz Ahmad who pointed out the 4 Gospels were not contemporary to Jesus p and nor…

My Other Half

I don’t want to lose this moment, so I’ll write it. I’m just watching him sleep, and I know he has done the same to me. I’m just, happy. There is no other word to describe it. We had an amazing day, and we did nothing really out of the ordinary. Have you ever been so in love with someone, every cell in your body thinks about that other person, all the time? At the same time, if you lost them, you know you’d be just fine because you got to spend this time with him/her. I’m so in love. I want him to do more, and better. He has never once held me back from anything that I wanted or needed. And not only that, but he has always pushed me to go out and get those dreams, wants, and needs ( or he just gets them for me, like a huge cup of sweet tea most days). When we lend each other money, we don’t keep track. Because if we are looking for repayment, every kind act repays it 100 times over. 

      Oh, we fight. Sometimes like cats and dogs. We yell and say horrible things to each other, and we both regret it as soon as it leaves our tongues.  I can see it in his eyes, and hear it in his voice. We don’t let anyone get between us, friends or family (mostly mine). I mean if you’re somebody’s other half, a third person just can’t fit into the whole… The fraction just doesn’t add up correctly. 

     Yes, I’m living the fairy tail dream. I’m not a princess. He’s not a prince, exactly. We aren’t rich, but we aren’t starving or sleeping outside either. We have luxuries, like school, a few nice things, a car that will get from A to B, food, and a place to sleep. But our biggest luxury is having each other. I want the best in life for him, and he wants the best in life for me. 

What if Islamophobia were directed at Jews?

Many people do not read the actual texts of religion, but go by what others say. It’s the easy way. However, if you look at Christian, Jewish, and Muslim holy text, there are MUCH more similarities than differences, even when the topic is killing, adultery, and blasphemy.

Islam is being targeted by many "thinkers" as a religion of violence. Islam is being targeted by many “thinkers” as a religion of violence.

Islam fear-mongering and Islamophobia have become so desensitized in American society and media that almost anyone who is called out for his or her crazed attack on an entire religion is able to hide behind the idea that it is free speech, or the “truth” that “must be said.” It is sad that actor Ben Affleck has become a symbol in this battle against this anger and hate after he spoke out against Bill Maher and Sam Harris after they spouted generalizations and Islamophobic sentiments on Real Time with Bill Maher last year.

It is time we look at how the world deals with Islam and Muslims, in America and elsewhere. Too often there is a concerted effort to attack anyone who says anything bordering on being anti-Jewish or anti-Israel. To speak out against the oppression and…

I Feel for You, international student in America.

Ahalan,

     As I mentioned earlier, my “almost fiance” is from Saudi Arabia. There is SO much paperwork to be done, and heaven forbid if someone makes a mistake. For example: Last December, the school he went to really messed him up with his scholarship, and we are STILL trying to fix this problem. His government and the American government both realize that it’s the school’s fault, but it doesn’t change the fact that we still have to do the paperwork. 

     People, if you don’t know, there are NUMEROUS forms that international students have to fill out, and NUMEROUS processes that they have to go through. I have learned so much just by being with him and helping him. I’m an American that has never traveled abroad, so I’ve never has to worry about a passport, or any of the documents that go with it. Some things I’ve learned about are: a passport, a visa (which I originally thought was the same thing), I-20, I-539, and processes for each of them. When I write it, it looks so concise, but actually doing it is another thing entirely. 

     Therefore, I feel for you, international student in America. The trouble you go through to actually get here, and the hard work you put in to actually keep everything up to date so that you can continue to study here. IT’S A LOT. It gets especially hard when you transfer schools. Kudos to you! You know things about America that the average American doesn’t know. I feel proud to have gotten all of this experience under my belt. Thank You.

Has anyone else had experiences like these? If so, let me know in the comments! Also, if anyone needs any help with these things, I will try my best to do so, because I know how tiring all of it gets. Any questions?

About Islam:

If you can’t make up your mind about the truth of Islam because of how the media portrays it, watch this. It is a fact filled video, with some funny aspects also.

It is truly inspiring. What truly gets me is when he said, IF there were 16,000 suicide bombers in the world that bombed in the name of Islam, that is still only 00.01%. What about the other 99.99% of Muslims?

What about the everyday Muslims with families, jobs, dreams, and thoughts just like everyone else’s?

‘Holy Bible’ Allows Lying – Deception?

Discover The Truth

Kaleef K. Karim

Note: This is article is by no means to disrespect Christian or Judaic brethren/sisters or their Faith. I only endeavoured to write this article because of some extremist Christians and Jews who charge the Islamic faith with deception – that Islam as a religion sanctions lying in all circumstances, a claim which has no backing from Islamic scripture. I have already responded to these claims in the following Link: Response To ‘Taqiyya’ Deception – Lying.

I have carried out a thorough examination on verses in the Old Testament and New Testament on whether lying is allowed. The verses I encountered shows that deception and lying is permitted in certain situations. The circumstances in which the verses show that one can utter falsehood are the following:

– Lying in order to save innocent lives from being killed
– Using deception in war so as to get…

A great Aya:

“Those who believe (in the Qur’an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians, any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” (2:62)

Koranic Universalism

“Those who believe (in the Qur’an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians, any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.” (2:62)– I love this.

Sola Means Peace In Pashto

Dear friends,

I spent half of the night writing these words, under the pale moonlight 🙂

It is my belief that Islam goes beyond mere tolerance towards other faiths. In my understanding of it, it goes beyond tolerance and establishes universalism.

I write these words in the hope that they can help to build bridges between people of different faiths and backgrounds, all in the spirit of goodwill and unity.

So with an open heart and mind, I invite you to read my analysis of 16 verses from the Holy Koran that I believe are key in planting the seeds of peace and understanding.

“And there is not a people but a warner has gone among them” (35:24)

I choose to start off with this verse because it clearly states in plain words that all people have received a warner. “And there is not a people” is not confined to…
