Go, Quebec, Go! [A look into the Niqab-Ban]

March 14, 2010 § 1 Comment

Quebec has joined the list of Countries, Provinces & Cities who see ‘Niqab’ as a threat. Yes, ladies & Gentlemen the Niqab – a really simple piece of cloth seems to have people in quite a flurry. God forbid Women wear such a thing and surely they must have forced into it! Not to mention, we simply can’t speak to them when they have that thing on. So guess what? We’re going to ban it. Hah! But wait, we’re still keen on freedom you know? We support Women in their right to wear whatever they want because this is the 21st century…

If you’re thinking great blog post – I absolutely support what she has written so far you need to click on the ‘X’ button on the top right corner of your screen because the above was sarcasm.

Simply put, this is ridiculous and I’m a little surprised that this is coming from Canada. Which I have long looked upon as being at least a little lenient to Muslims compared to other Western Countries but I guess not

The issue of the face-veil has been blown out of proportion by the Media. There is a lack of understanding & the Media did its part in painting the Niqab as ‘evil’ & ‘oppressive’. What we need is interaction between Muslim Women who veil & the Non-Muslim Western public. What we need is a more positive approach to the Niqab by the Media. What we need is understanding.

What I find ironic and hypocritical that these same Countries who preach ‘Women rights’ and Women being allowed to wear what they want are now breaking  their own rules, views and laws. At the same time being discriminatory. It’s utterly okay to walk around in a ultra mini-skirt and a tanktop because that is her right – but God Forbid she cover her face.

In the end, I have to say – this is going to do nothing but fuel more Anti-Western views within the Muslim World and cause Muslim Women who cover their faces to be alienated within Quebec Society.

10 Minutes by Ahmed Imamovic – Best Short Film in Europe

January 26, 2010 § Leave a comment

You have to watch this. 10 minutes can mean different things to different people.

Great short movie. What makes it even more interesting/tragic is that this really happened. While the whole Muslim world was going on about their daily business, Parties, Movies, gatherings, people were suffering in Bosnia, waiting for the Muslim Ummah to wake up, respond and stop this in human act of ethnic cleansing. Took long 6 years. Bosnia is still in shock

“And what is the matter with you that you fight not in the cause of Allah and for the oppressed among men, women, and children who say, “O Lord, take us out of this city of oppressive people and appoint for us from Yourself a protector and appoint for us from Yourself a helper”?”
[Al-Quran: Chapter: 4, Verse: 75]

Nasheed for Hijabis [By Ahmed bin Ali Al-Ajami]

November 15, 2009 § 1 Comment

Came across this and I loved it. Shaykh Ahmed bin Ali Al-Ajami has a beautiful voice – especially his Qiraat of the Qurán. 🙂

Stay strong if you wear the Hijab or the Niqaab – in the end, the ajar is with Allah SWT.

May Allah subhanna wa ta’ala give all our Sisters sabr who are facing problems be it at home or from the government because of their Hijab or Niqaab. Ameen.

Savagely beaten to death for being Muslim

September 9, 2009 § 4 Comments

This is another one of those hate crimes that a lot of people choose to ignore, especially the West. May Allah subhanna wa ta’ala grant him a high status in Jannatul Firdaws and give his family sabr. Ameen. I really hope the perpetrators of this crime are punished in this life and the hereafter.

A devout Muslim pensioner attacked by a race-hate gang of schoolboys died yesterday.

Ekram Haque, 67, lost his fight for life a week after he was battered to the ground in front of his three-year-old granddaughter, Marian.

As revealed in yesterday’s Daily Mail, he suffered horrific head injuries in the assault outside a mosque in Tooting, South-West London, where he had just prayed.

As he and Marian waited for a lift, the gang ran up behind him and clubbed him around the head.

Two other worshippers chased the thugs away but Mr Haque – described by friends as a ‘gentle giant’ – had suffered horrific head injuries.

And they had no fault except that they believed in Allâh, the All-Mighty, Worthy of all Praise! (85:8)
