Yusuf Islam on Colbert Report and Jay Leno

Yusuf Islam was in the U.S. to promote his new album, Roadsinger. He was invited on various shows including Colbert Report and Jay Leno to sing a few songs from his new album. He is no doubt a legend in the entertainment industry, which makes him a great daee. He said on the Colbert report that he is promoting his album to educate. He sang the song, Boots and Sand on one of the shows which is about how he was listed as a terrorist and banned from entering the U.S. five years ago.

Muslims are slowly but surely integrating back into society as normal individuals as displayed in mainstream media. Seeing as media is one of the greatest influences on societal attitudes it seems that tolerance towards muslims is slowly underway.

The Messed up Priorities of Ottawa Muslims Leaders

Why do we have 7 mosque building projects, but we have no projects for building believers to attend these huge expensive mosques? We build these believers from the school age through to High School, Collage, and University. But who is preparing these future believers? The Public School?
Sh. Ismail Batnuni will explain.

And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The likeness of the believers in their mutual love, mercy and compassion is that of the body; if one part of it complains, the rest of the body joins it in staying awake and suffering fever.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim in their Saheehs.

Week 14 – Is Sara Mohamed Fake? + Habitat for Humanity + What’s happening with George Galloway? + Are you ready for this…?

Host: Omar (Green Kufi)

Quran:

Qaf [ch. 50 v. 1-6 | Recited by Abdullah Basfar -عبد الله بن علي بصفر ]

Discussion:

Sara Mohamed may not be real. But does it really matter?

pantsonfire1

We have heard from some that Sarah Mohamed may not even be a real person. Jennifer Green, senior writer of the Ottawa Citizen, said the paper had come to that conclusion and Sarah has never stepped forward to refute that allegation. This may simply be a result of “Sarah” being concern to identify herself publicly. While others have said that in fact she is a real person and may be simply hiding her identity.
The bottom line is that it doesn’t really matter either way. Going to the citizen was not the best choice, nor the wisest. But then again we are talking about a “distressed youth”.
So my question is; what to do now? We either accept what is in place, and live with it until things get better over time and people get into comfort zones, and things run smoothly. But is that fair? What about these youth who feel left out? How long do they have to wait to be heard and how long until they feel some connection to the mosque? How long until the antics and unilateral decision a few will affect the community at large?
As we said yesterday Muslims should be taking action. For the benefit of our community, our youth, and our responsibility of being a powerful voice for the Canadian Muslim across the country. Vote if you have the opportunity, become a member of the OMA, and don’t just complain. Pick up a pen to vote, right an email, or start painting the walls. But don’t sit back and whine.

On the topic of doing something useful for the community:

Habitat for Humanity inter-faith build:

Back in October a Muslim family broke ground with establishing their new home with the help of Habitat for Humanity.
Well, there is some more good new on this. If you’ve ever wanted to have your try at building a house or simply wanted to give back to your community this next project is for you.
Habitat for Humanity is planing to have a faith-build where people from different faith participate to help out the needy of the community to establish a home. The beautiful thing about this is that it is a contribution of the family, the community, interested businesses, and you to help out. What’s even cooler than all of this is that the home is sold to the family at well bellow cost, and with an (brace yourself for this…) interest free loan!
That makes this home have more barakah, and be more halal than many of the homes we live in.
Out of 30 homes established in Ottawa, 5 house Muslim families.
So, rally your local Masjid to come up with the funds to send five or ten people to help build one of these homes and really contribute to building a community.

George Galloway to speak in Ottawa in spite of the ban on his entry to Canada.

Report from the Ottawa Peace Assembly
[Canadian Press] TORONTO – A court decision Monday upholding a ban on George Galloway from entering the country amid allegations he engaged in terrorist acts will see the British MP deliver speeches to Canadian audiences via a live video link from New York.
Following the Federal Court ruling, organizers of Galloway’s now aborted speaking tour said the maverick politician would not attempt to enter Canada.
“We’re not interested in doing anything illegal whatsoever,” said James Clark, a peace activist and one of the speaking tour’s organizers.
“Our expectations were such that we were already implementing Plan B, which was to make sure that he can still deliver the speech from a live broadcast.”
Galloway had been set to visit Toronto on Monday, the first of four scheduled speaking engagements in Canada.
The Canada Border Services Agency advised Galloway, in a letter dated March 20, that he had been deemed inadmissible to Canada on the grounds he allegedly engaged in terrorist activities… [see link for removed text]
However, Justice Luc Martineau ruled Monday he was not in a position to allow Galloway into the country although he did say there were “serious issues to be tried” if the judicial review occurs.
“The arguments raised by the applicants are not frivolous or vexatious,” Martineau ruled. “However, a proper factual record and the benefit of full legal argument . . . are lacking at the present time.”
The decision represented a “partial victory” in that the court did recognize there was a serious issue at stake, Clark said.
“We want to pursue and examine all the questions that have come up about how and why the (border agency) preemptorily issued this ruling of inadmissibility to Mr. Galloway,” Clark said.
Supporters were also concerned about alleged political interference from Ottawa in light of comments by Immigration Minister Jason Kenney, Clark said.
Kenney has said he did not ask the border agency to rule on Galloway’s admissibility, but would not use his ministerial power to overturn their decision.
Galloway planned to deliver his speeches to Toronto, Mississauga, Ont., Montreal and Ottawa this week from a studio in New York City.
In the letter to Galloway, the government said he had given $45,000 to Hamas, which is a banned terrorist organization in Canada.
Under Canada’s Anti-Terrorism Act, it is an offence to knowingly participate in or contribute to any activity of a terrorist group.
His supporters say Galloway had given money to the head of the government in Gaza but not to the head of Hamas, even though they are the same person.
Canadian Jewish Congress CEO Bernie Farber said the fact Galloway would still broadcast what he had to say showed that free speech was not at stake.

Safar 22 – You are 16, 25, 30, 54, 62 Are you ready to meet Allah + Calamities, why they befall us + Dedication: Family of Kamran Ahmed

Host: Omar (Mafro)

Quran:

Surat Al-Mulk (surah 67) [FlashQuran.com]

Discussion:

Are You Ready to Meet Allah? & Why Calamities Befall Us? Intro Nasheed

The wisdom of Allah concerning not only calamities, but all things around us that we see and don’t see are reserved in the knowledge of the ghrayb (unseen) that only Allah has knowledge of, and that we cannot comprehend in its entirety. Allah does explain things to us through the Holy Quran, and the Sunnah of his blessed prophet Mohammed peace be upon him. Concerning the wisdom of why there is so much pain and suffering in the world, and why calamities befall innocent people, for seemingly no reason, Allah explains to us a few things. Calamities befall us for many reasons, and I will touch upon two of them for now. Namely,

1. Calamities befall us directly as a test, as a reminder, and in a show of Allah’s utmost Mercy, as a means of cleansing our sins. As a means of erasing our bad deeds. The prophet peace be upon him said: “all the affairs of a believer are good. If blessings is bestowed upon them they are grateful, and that is best for them. And if calamity befalls them they are patient. And that is best for them.” He says in another place: “The believing man or woman continues to have affliction in person, property and children so that they may finally meet Allah, free from sin.” (Tirmidhi). He Also, said: “No calamity befalls a Muslim but that Allah expiates some of his sins because of it, even though it were the prick he receives from a thorn.” (Bukhari). Regarding the tests, Allah says {Do people think that they will be left to say “We believe” and that they will not be tested? We did test those before them and Allah will certainly know those who are true from those who are false.} (29:2-3)
Allah also says: {Be sure We shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil); but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere.} (2:155)
Allah’s messenger tells us about what Allah has said regarding the loss of a loved one: “I have no reward other than paradise for a believing slave of mine who remains patient for My sake when I take away his beloved one from among the inhabitants of the world.” (Bukhari)

2. Calamities befall others and are made knows to us so that we may heed Allah’s warnings. They come as a reminder to us so that if we are far off of the path towards Allah that we hasten to get back on track in the right direction, with the right focus on Allah and his beautiful, perfect religion. Allah says in this regard: {We have made some of you as a trial for others: will ye have patience? For Allah is One Who sees (all things).} (25:20)

The last point is where I want to remind myself and our listeners about not loosing opertunities. We really should not waste such oppertunities that Allah provides us with as reminders, less we become the reminder to other at a time when we are not ready to be.

Ottawa conference on Imam Tahawi’s “al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyya” was excellent! By Yahya Abdul Rahman

My wife and I had the opportunity to attend a weekend conference on February 14-15 at Ottawa’s Carleton University in which a brief study of Imam Tahawi’s “al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyya” was presented. This classical manual, venerated by Muslims scholars and their students for centuries for its accuracy and clarity, outlines in a concise format the basic tenants of the Islamic faith. The two scholars discussing the text were Shaykh Faraz Rabbani and Shaykh Omar Subedar, both hailing from Toronto.

I have to say that rarely have I attended an Islamic teaching session that has exhibited such high levels of professionalism and scholarship. Every single moment was jammed packed with information which further illuminated Imam Tahawi’s book for my wife and I.
