Malaysia a Christian Nation?

What do I think? What do you think I think? I am a Muslim. So again, what do you think I think? A yes? No?

Fiqh Medic

What are the legal maxims of Islamic Law (QAWA’ID FIQHIYYAH). Let's say, if a patient is having a colostomy bag (which contains his urine or feces), would the ablution be valid? How about, if a women is in labour (bear in mind that giving birth to the first child can be as long as 19hours); can she still performs Salah? (Let's find the answer here.)

Men VS Women

Let's think critically. Who is the one which better in governing this world!? Men, who have more influencing and have strong character or women, who have emotional values, and boundless cares and love?

Are You Ready to Fall in Love??

What is love to begin with? we might assume that we have that sort of wonderful love, unshakeable by no others even death. We may sacrifice anything to our beloved person. But, if we claimed that we love Rasulullah, where are the proofs? You are willing to sacrifice anything for his sake?

Does God need us?

Now, tell me, what are the differences between this human-made lego tree and the one who created by our almighty creator,our god?

The Islamic ‘dilemma’

"Read, in the name of thy God who created; created man out of a clot of congealed blood. Read and thy God is Most Bountiful. He who taught with the pen (writing and reading). Taught man that which he knew not."  
[Surah Al-‘Alaq, Verse 1-5]

   These are the first few verses of the holy book of Quran. Allah the almighty, ordered us humans to read, and seek knowledge. Thus, it is clear, that the propagation of the religion itself is through the means of knowledge. Thus regardless of any aspects of knowledge, it would be considered acceptable, be it in the teachings of aqidah or ibadah, right to the more ‘western’ types of knowledge such as science and even entrepreneurship. Specializing in a more ‘secular’ part of education does not make you any less of a Muslim and vice versa. But from the views of a portion of the community, there is a bold line that separates the knowledge of the deen, and the knowledge of worldly matter. Through this arguable point of view, it may seem wrong for one to specialize in a ‘worldly’ field and would prefer him/her to pursue all into the knowledge of the deen.

   But, let us take a look at an example, the man who contributes most of what we know as Algebra today, Muhammad ibn Musa Al-Khawarizmi.  He specializes in the field of modern mathematics. By knowing this fact, does it make him less of a Muslim?

   The world needs to have individuals that could erase the lines between theological knowledge and other secular knowledge thus applying it into the world that he/she lives in. Having individuals who could lead the community onto thinking right, would lead to a nation that could see, and think right as well based on facts and pure rationale by the guidance of Al-Quran and Sunnah.

   We need to step up our game, in the eyes of the world. Yes, we are oppressed, we may appear as a community that believes in terrorism but that doesn’t stop us from achieving greatness of the nation through the power of knowledge. Wake up fellow Muslims. It is time to lead by example.
I shall quote from an American author, Tim Ferris, ‘’Someday is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you.’’

   So act now.

“O you who have believed, if you support Allah , He will support you and plant firmly your feet.”

[Surah Muhammad 47:7]

A lot of people believe, in a moment of stress such as having exams and so forth, the only way to succeed is to practice hard and do our best. Thus, we tend to push aside our ibadah to Allah for awhile and resume after the task is over. However, in this verse, it shows that Allah promises those that helped Him would truly be helped in return. So, as a reminder to everyone, especially myself, helping Allah is indeed helping ourselves. A small but powerful reminder to live our lives as a better Muslims.
