In Support of Donald Trump’s Order for Religious Freedom

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.

Enjoining Good, Forbidding Evil: 1

Syed Jawed Anwar In my previous column, I mentioned three main evils of our society (North America) and God’s responses (commandments). These three evils are: Shirk (partnering other gods with Allah). This is the master of all evils (shirk in all segments of life --political, social, economy, judicial, religious, cultural, etc.). Riba (transactions involving interest and usury). Act of nation of Lut (Lot) (homosexuality, LGBT culture).

Make the Most of This Ramadhān

By Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullāh Once again, the best of all months, Ramadhān, is upon the horizon. It is a month in which at least one du'ā is accepted daily from every Muslim, one sunnah/nafl act is equivalent to the reward of one farḍ act, and one fardh act is rewarded seventy times over. From morning to evening and evening to morning, each and every second, Allāh ta'ālā showers His choicest blessings and barakah upon His servants.

Is Ontario “Accepting Education Act” (Bill 13) Neutral? Does it not Change the Curriculum?

SYED JAWED ANWAR A MUSLIM from Scarborough told me that an Imam and Khateeb of a Masjid spoke in his khutba (sermon) last Jummuah (Friday) that the “Bill 13 (the new Ontario’s Accepting Education Act) is harmless; it is neutral and doesn’t change the curriculum.” Similar messages have been posted by some so-called “Islamic leaders” of GTA in different discussion forums/groups. The question should be asked, “Who told you and how did you know? How and why are you interpreting the bill differe

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.

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).

Take Away Aung San Suu Kyi’s Nobel Peace Prize

Take Away Aung San Suu Kyi’s Nobel Peace Prize

I would like to add my voice to the Guardian's call to Take away Aung San Suu Kyi’s Nobel peace prize. She no longer deserves it George Monbiot wrote, "Few of us expect much from political leaders: to do otherwise is to invite despair. But to Aung San Suu Kyi we entrusted our hopes. To mention her name was to invoke patience and resilience in the face of suffering, courage and determination in the unyielding struggle for freedom. She was an inspiration to us all.”
