The Politicization of Blasphemy [Part I]

Islam Reigns

By Ibn Mosharraf

After decades of apathy we are finally seeing Muslims mobilizing and agitating against France for their continued anti-Muslim policies.

Something that many of us have been calling for years.

But these calls for boycott is not sitting well with some(or many) self-professed advocates of Laïcité (Secularism) and even some Muslims.

Here is a summary of the contentions against boycott making rounds online.

  1. The Prophet(ﷺ) tolerated blasphemy. Muslims who are protesting against blasphemy are radical extremists and terrorists. Or enabling them.
  2. Muslim nations should civilize themselves first before lecturing a Modern Nation like France which promotes Free Speech.
  3. Boycotting France is Hypocrisy. What about the Uyghurs?
  4. Boycotts are not effective.
  5. What about offensive verses in the Quran?

This two part series will address these contentions as comprehensively as possible.

In this first part we will discuss the following issues.

  • Are Muslims unIslamic in their intolerance towards blasphemy?
  • Does…

What’s the Point of Reciting what I don’t Understand?

Islam Reigns

The Quraan Majeed was revealed in Arabic and the people to whom it was directly revealed were Arabs who spoke the most eloquent form and dialect of the language. Despite them being completely conversant and fluent in the language, Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was tasked with a separate responsibility in his capacity as the Nabi – the responsibility to teach them the RECITATION of the Quraan Majeed.

Allah Ta‘ala mentions in Surah Aal ‘Imraan (v164):

لَقَدْ مَنَّ اللَّـهُ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ إِذْ بَعَثَ فِيهِمْ رَسُولًا مِّنْ أَنفُسِهِمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَإِن كَانُوا مِن قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلَالٍ مُّبِينٍ ﴿آل عمران ١٦٤﴾

“Indeed Allah Ta‘ala had favored the believers when He sent in their midst a messenger from among them who recites to them His verses, purifies them and teaches them the book and wisdom and they were before in clear misguidance”

The recitation of the Quraan Majeed holds…

WORSE THAN THE CARTOONS

Islam Reigns

By Hazrat Maulana Ahmad Sadeq Desai

Publication of the insulting and offensive cartoons is to be entirely expected from the enemies of Islam.

While the insults which the kuffaar hurl at Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) are hurting to every Muslim, there should be no surprise in our ranks when the crusaders engage in invective and vilification.

The Qur’aan clearly informs of the attitude of enemies such as the godless editors who are spiritually bankrupt and morally decadent. About their hatred for Muslims, the Qur’aan Majeed:

_“O People of Imaan! Do not take as bosom friends (confidants) those besides your own people. They leave no stone unturned (to harm you). They desire that which will cause suffering to you. Verily, hatred (for you) has poured from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is worse. Verily, We have explained the Signs to you, if indeed you have intelligence.” (Surah Ibraheem, Aayat…

France’s Blasphemy, Erdoğan, Macron and Freedom of Speech: Double Standards or Opposing Religions?

Islam Reigns

By Umar Rumi

France is recalling its ambassador from Turkey, incensed at “unacceptable” and “disrespectful” Erdoğan’s “disrespectful” statements on their pathetic Macron, while at the same time reclaiming their “freedom of speech” right to insult Sayyid al-khalq ﺻﻠﻰ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﻋﻠﻴﻪ ﻭﺳﻠﻢ , even doubling down (in a totally childish and purely hateful way) by featuring their blasphemous cartoons on government buildings.

What it is important to notice here is that what we have in front of us aren’t just “ hypocritical double standards “, rather, this is all a consequence of their ideology actually constituting a “civil secular religion”, for which the Nation State and the Republican Institutions are their god and religion, with its dogmas, rituals, sacred standard, priests, etc.

In such a setting, for them insulting Prophets ﻋﻠﻴﻬﻢ ﺍﻟﺴﻼﻡ comes across as something absolutely innocent, while disbelieving in their taghut institution is seen as nothing short of blasphemous…

A Destructive Education

Islam Reigns

In the past few years, the Muslim community has been celebrating and rightly so, the tremendous achievements young Muslims have had in securing their qualifications nationwide. The London borough of Newham, known for its socio-economically challenged demographic, has received much fanfare due to the success chiefly of two schools: Brampton Manor Academy and Newham Collegiate Sixth Form, a number of whose graduates have been able to secure places at the coveted Oxbridge. I feel obliged to mention at this point, on behalf of those institutions that bravely admit students regardless of their backgrounds, that both these Newham schools are highly selective. This notwithstanding, the students – a good number of which are from the Muslim community – have worked hard and rightly earned their places to study in two of the best universities in the world.

While the grounds and halls of universities around the UK will see an increase…

ALOE VERA – HEALTH BENEFITS

Islam Reigns

Affectionately dubbed the “plant of immortality” by the Egyptians more than 6,000 years ago, the aloe vera plant remains every bit as relevant today as it was in ancient times. The spiky, green gem has a rich history of use in various cultures who employed the plant’s moist middle for a wide variety of medicinal and cosmetic uses.

Their enthusiasm isn’t hard to understand. Aloe vera is widely regarded as a medicinal superstar, producing at least six natural antiseptics with the power to kill mold, bacteria, fungi and viruses. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, protects against sun damage, heals wounds and even works as a powerful laxative.

To use it, cut off the spiky top and sides as well as the white part of the leaf at the bottom. Then split the leaves lengthwise down the middle to release the gel inside. Wash the gel to get rid of dirt…

Debunking the So-Called “New Covenant” Deception of Christianity

Islam Reigns

CHRISTIANITY IS FOUNDED UPON MISINTERPRETATION OF THE “NEW COVENANT” PROMISED IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

The biblical Hebrew word most often translated as “covenant” is “bə·rîṯ” [Hebrew: בְּרִ֥ית]. The word appears about 280 times in the Old Testament.

There are many covenants in the Old Testament. Covenant means solemn agreement or bond usually between two parties. In the Old Testament, God promised to make a “New Covenant” (new agreement) with none other than the JEWS alone. So, all non Jews are excluded from the New Covenant promised in the Old Testament.

What this New Covenant is all about?
One should first note that all God’s righteous laws in the Old Testament are ETERNAL/ EVERLASTING (Psalms 119:160 etc). Psalm111:7–8 and Isaiah 40:8 state that God’s Word doesn’t change.

Now, the *New Covenant* only means that God shall renew the hearts and spirits of the JEWS and put the same everlasting Old Testament…

Reality of the Bid’ah “Arba’een” of the Rafidah

Islam Reigns

Arbaeen is a folklore Bid’ah that was never practiced by the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) for any of his beloved ones.

The ‘Ayatollahs’ insist on this mass event as it brings in money and in a way they have their own (tomb) Hajj and could rival Makkah i.e. the true Hajj.

Arbaʽeen (Arabic: ﺍﻷﺭﺑﻌﻴﻦ ) means the 40th. Mourning in Islam is restricted to three days, some Sufis have innovated Arba’een i.e. they mourn after the demise of the dead again after 40 days. That itself is a reprehensible Bid’ah.

The Rafidah have taken this Bid’ah to the next level and have innovated an an entire tomb/shrine Hajj where they walk and crawl to the shrine in Karbala (with Hajj similar slogans like Labbayka Ya Hussain instead of Labbayka Ya Allah) on an annual basis, 40 days after the day of Ashura (10th). Many of them even brag…

Beware of Fake Hadiths on Social Media

Islam Reigns

With the advent of social media, we can see many people sharing quotes that they claim are from the Hadith of the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), when in fact, these sayings have no source in any Hadith book. This is indeed a major sin. Attributing falsehood to the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was severely condemned in many Hadiths. These Hadiths were graded as Mutawaatir as about 200 Sahabas reported them.

One such Hadith is the saying of the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), “Whoever (intentionally) ascribes to me what I have not said then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.” [Al-Bukhari 109]
In another Hadith, He (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Do not tell lies about me, for whoever tells lies about me will enter Hell.” [Al-Bukhari 106]

A few scholars are of the view that the one who deliberately tells lies about the…

GOLD SCALES ARE NOT MORE PRECIOUS THAN HIS GOLD

GOLD SCALES ARE NOT MORE PRECIOUS THAN HIS GOLD
During a discussion, a student asked his teacher,
Student: “If it is true that teachers are smart people! Why are not the teachers who become world leaders, successful entrepreneurs, and wealthy people?
The teacher smiled wisely, without saying a word, he went into his room, and came back out with a scale.
He put the scales on the table, and said: “My student, this is a scale, which is usually used to measure the weight of gold with a capacity of up to 5000 grams”.
“How much is gold for that weight?”
The student frowns, calculates with a calculator and then he answers,
“If the price of one gram of gold is 800 thousand rupiah, then 5000 grams will be equivalent to 4 billion rupiahs”.
Teacher: “Alright my student, now try to imagine if someone came to you with these scales and wanted to sell them for that price, would anyone be willing to buy them?”
The pupil was silent for a moment! He felt that he was starting to get a little enlightenment from the teacher, then he said: “gold scales are not more valuable than gold !, I can get these scales for under two million rupiah !, why pay up to 4 billion?”
The teacher replied: “Now, my son, now you have learned a lesson, that you students are like gold, and we are the scales of your achievements, you are the ones who should be the jewels of this world, and let us remain accurate and accurate scales. precision to measure the level of your knowledge. “
“If someone comes to you carrying a diamond in his right hand and a bucket of sweat in his left hand, then he says:” My left hand is the sweat that I have poured out to find a diamond in my right hand, without this sweat, there will be no diamonds, so buy this sweat for the same price as diamonds “
“Does anyone want to buy the sweat?”
“Certainly not.”
“People will only buy his diamonds and ignore his sweat.
Let us teachers become the sweat, and you are the ones who should be the diamonds. “
The student was crying, he hugged his teacher and said: “O teacher, how noble are your hearts, and how sincere, we will not be able to forget you, because in every one of our intelligence, every sparkle of our gems, there are drops of your sweat …
The teacher said: “Let the sweat evaporate, towards the realm of the divine side of the GOD, because the nature of the hereafter is more noble than all the trinkets of this world, please don’t forget our names in your prayers.”
