    Recent discovery of a human hand bone puzzles evolutionary scientists

    That picture looks is seriously photoshopped which makes everything seem dubious unecessarily... At least it links to the journal article for corroboration. Interesting though.

    The Fundamentals of Tawheed (Islamic Monotheism) By Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips

    As-salaamu `alaykum, In light of what is mentioned, I thought I'd mention something anyone can verify factually. Dr. Bilal Philips materials (books, lectures and more) are utilised as a major source of the course material found in KIU's (Knowledge International University) English degree...

    Islam overtakes Catholicism as world's largest religion JESUS IS

    As-salaamu `alaykum This is not accurate to me. Just as they have divided Catholicism from Protestantism as separate faiths, it is only 'fair' that shi`ism be seen as a distinct faith from Sunni Islam. For us, Catholics and non-Catholics are all Christians and many of us would distance...

    Gay "Mosque" to open in Paris

    While studying STDs and other auto-immune deficiencies, I came to learn that obviously, one of the acts that homosexuals engage (the one that is kufr in Islâm) is a ripe breeding ground for disease. Of course, for it's being used for other than the purpose it was created for, being a place of...

    Staying with a Very Practicing Christian Family for Several Weeks.

    Wa`alaykum us-salaam, Interesting scenario. I'd be careful in indulging in their practices and it's probably best to a) not be involved with them and b) not cause any offence in the process. Let them say their prayers over their food for example and wait as you suggested. When they study...

    Mods/Admins read this.

    wa`alaykum us-salaam I would help, but am having trouble myself with administrative tools right now. Please remind me if I don't get back to you soon.

    Satanic Verses

    As-salaamu `alaykum, This is getting ridiculous. The subtle insult charges - whether true or not, the calls for banning, the horrendous du`aas being made etc. To the user who was going on about the registration page - sorry but your assertion is ridiculous and there's no need to accuse...

    I need to books of the Sayyid Qutub

    As-salaamu `alaykum, I really don't want to make this a matter whereby people are marked by their views on individuals, but the following needs to be noted in light of some statements I've read here. On Al-Albânî praising Qutb Using the intercession of Shaykh Ibn Bâz as proof for Sayyid Qutb...

    Who is behind Save Maryam campaign???

    For I believe a tv channel to propogate da`wah and a community line for the youth. Watch the video insha' Allah. - - - Updated - - - For I believe a tv channel to propogate da`wah and a community line for the youth. Watch the video insha' Allah.

    Attending Universities in the West

    In saying what I said, I did not indicate that Muslim women are not in need of degrees as I think nearly all of us would be better off with education, and degrees do offer many benefits asides from the academic side of it. I was merely saying how it is (to my belief at least) in a practical...

    Attending Universities in the West

    Wa`alaykum us-salaam I went through a similar dilemna when I was starting uni back in '05. In principle, free mixing at university's etc. is clearly not allowed - many Shaykhs will tell you this. Others however consider the circumstances of Muslims in the West and how in some countries, a...

    Who is behind Save Maryam campaign???

    Wanted to add, through some Evangelical nonsense that a brother sent me, it's claimed that the demographics in terms of religion could now nearly be a 75%:25% ratio. That is alarming if near true...

    Who is behind Save Maryam campaign???

    Yes, it's Mercy Mission. Due to it's Kony '12 look and feel many have been skeptical and I don't blame them... In terms of well known names, Dr. Tawfique Chowdhury and Sh. Sajid Umar are apart of them. Info can be found through their link, which I've put in my sig. One thing to note - though...

    The Methodology of the Salaf Concerning Ijtihad and Taqlid

    Apology accepted, but you still haven't returned my right. What fitnah are we involved in? I've come in to mod this thread and see a certain user cause disruption, behave rashly and end up banned. He comes back with a new account, acts as though he's someone else playing talbis, and then...

    The Methodology of the Salaf Concerning Ijtihad and Taqlid

    Firstly jazaak Allaahu khayra for agreeing to that. Yes, in fact I too believe that much of what these brothers have said is not constructive and at times insulting to the `Ullemaa' in an indirect way. I also believe they've continually failed to address you and have responded claiming the...

    The Methodology of the Salaf Concerning Ijtihad and Taqlid

    You didn't return my salaams, Brother, I quoted you as you were the one to reply to sister Asja in the manner you did, as if to drag others involved into this issue when there really is no need. It's far from objective and is more emotional, much like your question to me. Is there a need...

    The Methodology of the Salaf Concerning Ijtihad and Taqlid

    As-salaamu` alaykum Brother, with all due respect, Harris corrected you as you spoke at length of fiqhi issues and demonstrated severe grammatical errors in your Arabic. That one's extent of knowledge of Islam rests upon their command of Arabic as is known. `Umar himself use to whip people...
