Msheet feen, ya DK?

June 21, 2008

O Denmark, where did you go?

For a long time, i’ve remained silent on this issue. Now it is too much. I feel that what is happening right here is that what makes Denmark a lovely country is being taken away from us. I dont feel like i am in the samy country i settled in in the early 90’s. I cannot remain silent anymore on this.

Fellow danes probably already know what i am talking about. I am talking about the two tunisians, who are facing deportation, because they allegedly were planning to kill a man behind the Muhammad cartoons. (more…)

Democracy: Heresy pr. definition?

April 5, 2008

Am I a democrat? Is democracy kufr?

I am not a scholar and do not posses the level of Ijtihad, this is not a fatwa, so the following is nothing but my own view. If someone have anything from the scholars of Islam that opposes my view, feel free to let me know.

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.

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…)

The reason why i oppose Hizb-ut-Tahrir

February 21, 2008

All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.

The above sentence (Alhamdulillahi rabb el3alameen), expressed daily by muslims, is in my opinion one of the essences of Islam. We should praise and thank Allah for everything – for everything we have, knowing that Allah (tt) is capable of everything, even taking away from us what we have. Not only by uttering these words, but by feeling a deep, sincere thankfulness in our hearts towards Allah, tabaraka wa ta3ala.

I thank Allah (tt) that i now have the oppoturnity to express why i oppose Hizb-ut-Tahrir. (more…)
