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…)

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.

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.
