Prophet Muhammadﷺ: War Etiquettes and Our Future

Prophet Muhammadﷺ: War Etiquettes and Our Future

The kindness and compassion of Prophet Muhammadﷺ (peace upon him) was such that he commanded ethical principles in events requiring physical fighting. For example: “While entering the enemy area, do not raise your hand against any child, old person, patient or wounded person. Do not raise your eyes towards a woman. Do not cut any fruit-bearing trees. Do not sacrifice any milk-giving animal, and do not ruin a population.

The Implosion of Western Society (Part 2)

The Implosion of Western Society (Part 2)

By Elder George THE removal of restraints on female behavior provides women of the Western influenced world limitless opportunities to make whoopee as they increasingly and uninhibitedly express their emotions and desires. Even the so called enlightened women with New Age values say with spiritual conviction that right and wrong or good and bad don’t exist. Isn’t that wonderful?

In Support of Donald Trump’s Order for Religious Freedom

By Syed Jawed Anwar I fully support Donald Trump’s executive order boosting religious freedom by erasing IRS restrictions against political activities by tax-exempt religious organizations. He announced "no one should be censoring sermons” The order fulfilled a campaign pledge, during a Rose Garden National Prayer ceremony on May 4, attended by religious leaders, activists, and other leaders.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Rights of Women and Slaves

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Rights of Women and Slaves

WHEN Muhammadﷺﷺ became Prophet, women of that time were deprived of their human rights. They were just a comfort material for men and a source of entertainment. The men kept and treated them as they wished. Men were disappointed and ashamed at the birth of a girl and buried them alive. In the Qur’an, Allah says: “And when the girl [who was] buried alive is asked for what sin she was killed” (81: 8-9).

What we should be teaching our Children?

What we should be teaching our Children?

By Imam Zaid Shakir WHEN we talk about Islamic education and our children, the discussion usually revolves around strictly academic issues related to technical aspects of curriculum development, testing standards and methodologies, balancing between secular and religious education, and similar concerns.

The Implosion of Western Society (Part 1)

Elder George THE past few years has seen a relatively limited posting of essays on my website (mensaction.net) because of what I considered a lack of involvement by the readership. After positing more than 160 essays and not having created much of a following I decided to take a hiatus. Then recently I thought of the advice of a friend who indicated the importance of getting the message out regardless of the immediate response. He said people will take action at the opportune time.

Character of Prophet Muhammadﷺ: An example for the World

Character of Prophet Muhammadﷺ: An example for the World

IT is strange that, with all that has been written about Prophet Muhammadﷺ (peace upon him), the world still does not know about the unparalleled personality of the last messenger of Allah and compassionate leader of humanity. Allah has given him the title of “mercy for the two worlds” and has called him gracious and merciful.

Could Marwan Barghouthi be the Ace up Trump's Sleeve?

Yvonne Ridley THE view on Donald Trump's first 100 days from this side of the Atlantic has been a bit like watching a car crash in slow motion. We've had the bombing of Syria and the beating of ever louder war drums towards North Korea, an on-off love in with Russia and China and a few u-turns over Muslim immigration and let's not forget the big, beautiful wall which will probably not be built.
