  • I met Keith Ellison today!

    Congressman Keith Ellison (the first Muslim elected to Congress) came and visited my Mosque today, along with CAIR member Parvez Ahmed. They were saying that Muslims should unite and that people are trying to seperate Muslims and that they are winning. Basically, the sermon today was for unity in the Muslim community.


    But anyways, I got to meet famous people today. I wish I had a camera because it would be a great facebook photo.
    Dreams feel real while we're in them. It's only when we wake up do we realize something was actually strange.

      Surat Al-An'am verse 26: Of them there are some who (pretend to) listen to thee; but We have thrown veils on their hearts, so they understand it not, and deafness in their ears; if they saw every one of the Signs, they will not believe in them; in so much that when they come to thee; they (but) dispute with thee; the Unbelievers say: "These are nothing but tales of the ancients."

        Is he a revert??????
        Everyone thinks their a scholar because they know how to copy and paste, you get your ummah face on and the second you log out, you know your reality. Anyone can attain knowledge, how many can implement it?

            yes.
            The Sahaba (radiAllahu anhum) used to cling to the Sunnah just because it was Sunnah
            Today we abandon the Sunnah, just because it's Sunnah.

              Nice :)


              Peace
              3:103 And hold fast, all together, unto the bond with God, and do not draw apart from one another. And remember the blessings which God has bestowed upon you: how, when you were enemies, He brought your hearts together, so that through His blessing you became brethren; and [how, when] you were on the brink of a fiery abyss. He saved you from it. In this way God makes clear His messages unto you, so that you might find guidance.

                  I wanted to at least shake his hand, but he had like 20 people surrounding him. However, I got to stand real close to him. Seriously, I wish I had a camera.

                    Muslim politicians giving a talk on Muslim unity? Alhamdulillah thats good to hear, usually "muslim" politicians only know about giving talks on "integration" and being "moderates".
