Amina Ahmed – the Creator has called her back.

Death is part of this life. Every soul has to taste death in order to live eternally in the next life.

This picture is of a young sister Aminah Ahmed, a young convert to Islam,  graduating  from University of Texas in Arlington.  she went to sleep with a headache and didn’t wake up. She had a brain aneurysm and is in a coma on life support at the ICU at Plaza Medical Center in Fort Worth. .

Inna lillahi wa ilayhi rajioon. To Allah we belong and to Him we return.Aminah just passed away and her Janaza was held at Darul Eman south Green oaks Masjid Arlington Tx, after Dhuhur. The family is in immense pain having seeing their daughter graduate literally hours before she was declared completely brain dead.

May Allah grant her jannatul firdaws and may Allah have mercy upon her parents. May He grant her family ease and steadfastness. May she be their doorway to Jannah. Ameen

May her family and friends somehow find peace and comfort during this difficult time.

This is the supplications made on her behalf:

– Inna lillahi wa inna illaihi rajioon. SubhanAllah. May Allah (swt) accept her every good deed and multiply it manyfold. May He (swt) forgive her for any sin. May Allah (swt), the Most Exalted, accept every smile she ever brings to anyone’s face through memories of her as sadaqa jaariya. May He (swt) grant her loved ones ease and allow her to pass through the gates of Janatul Firdous. Ameen.

– May Allah grant jannah to Aminah and give her family strength to deal with the pain of losing their daughter. Ameen

Where is justice towards the people of Rohingyas? Where?

The unheard cries of the Rohingyas people!!!! Does the media care?

 

What!!! Nobody is hearing their cries!! Nobody sees their sufferings!!! Where are those who are militating for peace and justice?

New York Times journalist Thomas Fuller said the migrants pleaded desperately as he and other journalists approached the boat, crying:

“Please help us! I have no water! Please give me water!”

he migrants have been kept alive by food and water passed to them from fishing boats.

Reports say they have been forced to drink their own urine in a bid to survive.

The passengers said they had been onboard the boat for three months. They said 10 passengers who died on the voyage had been thrown overboard.

Thai authorities refused to grant permission for the boat to land. Regional police official Major General Puttichat Akhachan told Reuters: “We declined them entry to the country but we gave them food and water to adhere to our human rights obligations.”

Denied citizenship by national law, Myanmar’s Rohingya are effectively stateless. They have limited access to education or adequate health care and cannot move around freely. They have been attacked by the military and chased from their homes and land by extremist Buddhist mobs in a country that regards them as illegal settlers.

It’s Not About Religion.. Its About Humanity…Who will help the Rohingas people?

This is what different people from different walks of life are saying about this situation:

“Living in 2015, witnessing such lives of fellow human helplessly is just enough to realise this world has lot of things to fix to restore the faith in humanity”

“These are human beings, like you and me, they are in very unlucky circumstances. Where is our humanity? So sad!”

Burmese government are acting such racist attitude toward their own rohinga citizens which are the main reasons of causing such catastrophic situation .
I m from bangladesh and in our costal boundary and Burmese border , millions of people trying to enter the country only to live . Shameful for Burma.”

“Leaving these helpless people in no where – – what kind of judgment it is ? People are talking about justice for the sake of law but how they forget that without people there will be no justice. Please Indonesia – – Please Thailand — Please Myanmar – – take them to your land for the sake of humanity . Then you accuse them . First please give them a chance to live – -”

“This is a strange time when human being is exploring the space and reaching the moon but they can’t reach other people’s heart. so sad.”

Some of the Human are snatching each other belonging like Rakhines and Myanmar government. Playing game with Rohingya people as football. Oh! powerful human of the world! please save the Rohingya people. Thank you so much.”

Halal food and restaurants in Mauritius

ARE MUSLIMS EATING HALAL FOOD WHEN THEY GO TO NON-MUSLIM RESTAURANTS WHICH PROPOSE HALAL? DO MUSLIMS REALLY KNOW WHAT IS MEANT BY HALAL?

Let us fear Allah in its proper way by searching for the right knowledge before we satisfy our desire for tasty food!!!

As Muslims are a minority in Mauritius, it means that halal food and restaurants CANNOT BE FOUND EVERYWHERE.

They are mostly found in Muslims’ regions such as Plaine-Verte and Rue Desforges in Port-Louis, at Pailles and Phoenix [mainly]

A Muslim halal restaurant should have his cook, his waiters and servers as believers who understand the importance of saying bismillah and cooking the food with the right ingredient. It is contradictory to have a Muslim owner who hire non Muslim as cook since the latter does not understand the importance of halal!!!

The good news is : There are more and more halal restaurants scattered in Beau-Bassin, Rose-Hill and Quatre-Bornes nowadays. For Muslim tourists who happen to travel by Flic-en-Flac, they can eat at Zub Express, Flic-en-Flac, a halal restaurant owned by Muslims and the servers/waiters are Muslims, clean look and properly dressed.

Most wholesale butchers in Mauritius are Muslims. There are many Muslims who are owners of snacks, restaurants and even street vendors and we thank them very much for doing such great jobs!

There are also some fast foods which provide halal food but please see their certificates. The best thing, when you are not sure, is to eat fish [hey…yes]!!! The famous fish and chips and I hope the ingredients are all halal.

We hope that hotels provide more and more halal food for Muslim tourists in our country and that they take into consideration that halal food should not be served next to pork ….

However, we should NEVER be misled by Indian restaurants which propose vegetarian food etc for halal restaurants. There is nothing more disgusting than to go to a fast food which is supposed to offer halal food, but their waiters/receptionists have a dirty look and unclean appearance…..!!!!

Muslims should not fall in the trap of many restaurants owners who propose halal food while they do not possess any halal certificate!!!! Or those restaurants whose owners are Muslims but employ non-Muslims to take care of their restaurants…..

“I have seen many Muslims passively accept what the hotels propose. It is up to them to contribute to to help hotel managers understand that it is high time to offer halal food in restaurants as there are more and more Muslims worldwide who travel” – important notice.

I remember a case when I was in South Africa. I paid the hotel including breakfast and as I came down for breakfast, there were chicken and beef but they were NOT halal. And many Muslims were eating!!! What were they eating? Only having bread, butter and cheese and a cup of tea while they have paid for a buffet!!! Or are they eating haram without caring? Anyway, Allah knows best but they were all very passive. And I decided to ask the cook and he told me that clients should put their orders on the eve, so that they may be served halal food!!! This is a good idea and this is how Muslims should handle things when they book a hotel.The first thing is to ask for halal food. The first thing is to show your concern about eating halal. If you don’t care, no one will care for you!!!

By the way, you should know that haram does not imply only pork. It implies such things that are prohibited by Islam, such as sacrificing an animal not in the name of Allah, naming another god or gods instead of saying: Bismillah [in the name of Allah], animal blood in the food, having wine or any alcoholic drinks in the food, even those animals that are not allowed to be eaten such as monkeys…or any ingredients that contain such things as pork, wine or blood. What about food cross-contamination? What if they are cooking halal chicken in the same recipient that contain blood or pork?

Based on this fact, do you sincerely believe that a non-Muslim will cook food for you in the name of Allah???? Do you think that a non-Muslim who himself/herself eats haram will dutifully cook halal for you, take all the necessary precaution to cook your food separately so that there is no cross-contamination

We find this in Bangkok where owners publicize their products halal yet they are owned by non-Muslims who have no idea about halal. Unfortunately, many Muslims, when it comes to eating and having a good time around a table, DO NOT CARE WHAT THEY EAT. They do not verify and do not care to verify. How can people neglect a Muslim restaurant which provides halal and prefer a non-Muslim restaurant which serves alcohol drinks ? They do this because they do not read the Quran and do not understand that food has a higher objective  than taste and pleasure!!!

The main reason for it is, surely GREED. GREEDINESS CAN TAKE US TO HELLFIRE. GREEDINESS IS WHAT MAKE US FALL INTO SINS.

Do you know what is halal? Do you know why it is important to eat halal? Do you know why the slaughtering of animals in a halal way is important for your health?

Do you really care what you eat? Do you really care about the environment in which you are eating? Do you care whether you are eating among many idols while you are supposed to reject idols? Do you care to eat in a place where all kinds of music and songs are being played in your ears and in the ears of your children or babies? Do you care that your babies record these satanic words in their innocent minds while  you are happy eating and drinking among people who are swearing, smoking, drinking alcohol?

Unfortunately, the world has become so ignorant nowadays. We see intellectual Muslims who do not care about halal anymore and who even propose other Muslims to eat at non-Muslim restaurants,; we see Muslims who care to cook halal food at home but once they are outside, they do not care anymore….

We are commanded to take of the pure, wholesome and legal food and drink that Allah in His Mercy and Bounty has provided us and abstain from all the harmful, corrupt, unclean, and filthy. One of the general principles of Islam is that all that is good, pure and beneficial is allowed, and all that is evil, filthy, unclean and harmful is forbidden.

So please, let’s care more about what we are eating and let us fear Allah in the way He should be feared. Give the proper signals to restaurants so that they may improve of their food, their employees, the service…..

Any suggestions and positive answers are most welcomed

 

Mulsims, listen to what Nouman Ali khan advise you to do

When Muslims think about how their beloved prophet and so many others from the brotherhood of prophets before him like Jesus and Noah (may Gods peace and blessings be showered upon them all) would respond to ridicule, insult, mockery, allegations, hate and even physical persecution, they learn a timeless truth about these carriers of revelation: in face of such things they responded with even greater intensity of perseverance and loving concern even for their opposition.

Unless we Muslims have sacrificed the way they have so relentlessly in their noble careers for the good of the people, we are not to carry hatred in our hearts for those that mock us or our faith. We are offended, yes, but we will respond in a way that honors the legacy of these great role models and we will reflect deeply and ask ourselves, how would they have responded?

They simply allowed their character, genuine concern for the well being of humanity, and the timeless truth of their unified message to speak louder than the words of hurt hurled their way throughout their lives

The change that I want to witness within myself…

“Yesterday I was clever,
So I wanted to change the world.

Today I am wise,
So I am changing myself” – Rumi

Many people have worked hard in trying to change others and change the world but the missing element is that they miss to change themselves. They have lived to make others happy while they themselves were not happy.

Decide to be happy. Start today….take 5 minutes to befriend yourself and sit with yourself [that is, alone] with no one around and you will learn who you are….

How to treat anger?

Do you know the story of the two wolves?

Indeed, there are two wolves inside us….discover

An old Indian Grandfather said to his grandson who came to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice……..
“Let me tell you a story. I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy.
It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times.”
He continued……
“It is as if there are two wolves inside me; One is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all round him and does not take offence when no offence was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way. He saves all his energy for the right fight.


But the other wolf, ahhh!


He is full of anger. The littlest thing will set him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason.
He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless anger, for his anger will change nothing.
Sometimes it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit.”

The boy looked intently into his Grandfather’s eyes and asked…

“Which one wins, Grandfather?”

The Grandfather smiled and quietly said……
“The one I feed.
