Salaam, I live in South Korea and we’re hearing news about our neighbors up North doing nuclear experiments again. We don’t know what’s going on yet and it’s kind of scary. Could you make a quick duaa for our safety and that nothing happens? Jazakallahu khair:)

one-only-islam asked: Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. First off, I'd like to say your blog is very inspiring and please keep it up insyaAllah. Second of all, I'd like to ask you about a topic that I seldom come across. Eating disorders (Anorexia/Bulimia) in Islam. What are the methods to avoid or how can we overcome this illness? Any duas to fight off the evil voices leading us to this evil path? Thank you. :))
Peace and many many blessings,
Personally, I think this is one of the most important questions that we have ever received. May Allah bless you immensely for this.
God bless you! — Dee.
Last week, I had the opportunity to perform a poem about the Prophet (SAW) at Simon Fraser University’s Muslim Student Association’s Islamic Awareness Week, alongside local Vancouver talent and Boonaa Mohammed. The week was focused around learning about the Prophet Muhammad (SAW). Here it is, my poem, “Utopian”.
Read the poem and watch the video here: “Utopian” Spoken Word - SFU MSA Islamic Awareness Week 2013 (Nadir Keval)
AssalaamuAlaikum! Insha’Allah this reaches everyone in the best of health and imaan.
Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors. [5:32]
As an ummah, we are like one body. If you arm is cut, your mind feels it’s pain. If you hurt your loved you, your heart feels it’s pain. Similarily, our Ummah is a muslim’s body, soul, and mind- If a brother/sister is suffering, we are suffering. I write to you with this link, insha’Allah if you could all sign to END DRONE STRIKES against CHILDREN in Pakistan/Afghanistan. There is a deadline, so please please do not procrastinate. It takes one minute to do and in turn be appreciated for the effort, eternally! here is the link. thank you :)
noureddine7 asked: Assalamualeikum, i have a question: Why do u say (as) after imam Ali ibn abi talib? He just was a companion of the prophet Mohammed salla allahu alayhi wa sallam. It should be (ra) radiallahoe a3nhoe
Peace and many blessings,
Only Allah knows the true status of a personality, but some Muslims find purpose in measuring the nobility of a personality related to the Prophet — presenting it a part of their theological belief — in order to recognize the persons who have sacrificed immensely for the sake of God.
While some Muslims might believe that Imam Ali ibn abi Talib was merely a companion of Muhammad, other Muslims believe that he was presented a very holy status in the religion of Islam by Allah; Muslims with both beliefs have their historical, theological, and narrative justifications for proving their point, but at the end of the day, whatever our opinion is, it is up to us to respect each other’s positions.
In terms of the Arabic definition of both (RA) and (AS), alayhi salam literally translates to: peace is with him. RadhiyaAllah anh translates as: may Ridha (content or pleasure) of Allah be upon him (who is spoken of). One seems to highlight the fact that peace is with the person spoken of while the other is like that of a supplication, or dua, for the personality. Personally, they are both lovely attributes.
Peace. — Dee.
I made this cover photo for Facebook and I feel like it’s worthy of sharing with everyone to use. I’ll be making more from time to time..
OBJECTIVES: Rooted in Islamic values, NISA strives to create a more just community in which people of all cultures and beliefs can participate. Our primary goal is to reduce the incidents of domestic violence and achieve domestic harmony among families through collaborative efforts with the community and other established organizations.
NISA provides services to all who seek assistance regardless of race, religion or gender.
NISA shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious affiliation, gender, sex, sexual orientation, age, political opinion, pregnancy, disability, physical appearance, national origin, ethnicity, ancestry, ethical beliefs, medical appearance, disability impairment, or other medical or physical condition, educational background or veteran status.
HISTORY: The statistics show that domestic violence is on rise among the Muslim communities in North America. There is a dire need for the establishment of social welfare organizations, who can help and understand the plight of Muslims trapped in DV situations.
NISA was created, in October 2002, to play a positive role in elimination of this social condition within Muslim families.
