Denmark and its alleged xenophobia

February 28, 2008

May peace be upon him who follow guidance.

 Dear fellow muslims and fellow arabs. Dear non-muslim and non-arab readers. I hope you read this in good health.
In Denmark, many rumors flourish about what the Arab world is like. People tend to get their information from what they see in the news and a few vacations to Hurghada. The Arab World seems very far away from the average danish man.

But the same is also true for you, my dear arab and muslim brethen. You get your information about Denmark from what you have heard and perhaps about few things you’ve heard in the news – among them being the cartoons and the way the danish government handled it, along with romours about xenophobia, islamiphobia, racism and so on.

Therefore, as an arab muslim living in Denmark, i will write about this subject, so that we all may understand. And may Allah (tt) grand us succes in understanding.

Ha-Aretz means The Earth!?

February 22, 2008

I was just sitting, surfing on YouTube. No work today. Boring, boring.

So i just began thinking suddently out of the blue, that i’ve always been told that Hebrew and Arabic is very similar languages. I thought i would maybe be able to understand some hebrew. So i searched for some Israeli stuff, and i found some. (more…)

Democracy – What if I disagree?

February 22, 2008

May peace be upon all who follow guidance.

Dear readers, and dear fellow bloggers. When i watch the news, when i have discussions with native danes – yes practically all the time – i get confronted with the common thought that what the arabs and muslims need is democracy. The danish prime-minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen refuse to have any dialogue with Hizb-ut-Tahrir, because it is “anti-democratic”. Naser Khader, a member of the danish parliament, lately expressed in TV during a debate on the danish state-sponsored channel DR2 that “children in Denmark should be raised democratic”. “Immigrants do not have to be danish, as there is many ways of being danish, but they have to be democratic”, he continued.

Democracy seems to be the solution to everything, but what are the limits of this democracy? In the danish debate, the limit exists. I have located one. At least i think so. (more…)

Taqlid – Trusting a mujtahid

February 22, 2008

Islām is like a fortress, or castle, that is guarded continuously by armed sentinels, within its many-feet thick walls that are impenetrable, save for one heavily protected gate and drawbridge that opens by falling over a crocodile-infested moat, that is many metres wide, and cannot be crossed nor overcome. How do you destroy such a people who are so aggressively protected by revealed laws and sincerely adopted rules, yet are themselves so pure of presence, serene of spirit, modest of manners and content of custody?

What defines a Sunni Muslim

February 21, 2008

The question on what defines a sunni muslim often arises, and the answer according to the Ulamaa of Islam is that a Sunni Muslim is one who adheres to one of the two schools of Aqida (doctrine), which is the Ash’ariyya and the Maturidiyya, and one of the four schools of fiqh (jurisprudence), who is Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i and Hanbali.

Refer to Sheikh al-Islam Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, in his brilliant work Fatawa al-Hadithiyya.
