Whenever I feel down,and I need a trustworthy friend to talk to ,a friend who won’t laugh at my funny crying face,a friend who won’t make me feel small for being vulnerable ,hopeless and hapless ;I take my prayer rag ,face the Kaaba ‘above which Allah ‘s throne is located, kneel on my knees and talk to him ;my Allah ,your Allah.
He’s our creator ,he give us life, sight ,hearing ,taste ,besides priceless gifts.He brought us to life and light .We were born to savour all beauty of life, to feel the velvet touch of hope in a flower ,in a tree leaf ,in a rose petal or in a butterfly caress .He created me ,and he’s the one ,the only one who has to judge me, to punish me .He ‘s the fountain of all these blessings and I owe him ; I don’t owe you anything.
Islam is a religion of tolerance not oppression.That you wear a veil or grow a beard, doesn’t give you the right to judge people .That doesn’t make of you superior to them or better than them either. The Messenger of Allah (swt) said, ‘Allah (swt) does not look at your figures nor at your attire but He looks at your Hearts and accomplishments’ [Muslim]
Allah put the rules down in his holy book ,and he clarified the Reward of following them as well as the punishment of breaking them .People do things when they’re convinced to .You can’t force them to do things by power .If you want people follow you ,try to set a role model for them not by growing a beard or hiding behind a veil , or by pointing a gun to them .You can win them over by being a true muslim, and by praying ,for those who you think are lost, to find their way .Allah asked us to be kind to non-muslim.What if that man or woman was a muslim? “Allah forbids you not, With regard to those who Fight you not for (your) Faith Nor drive you out Of your homes, From dealing kindly and justly With them: For Allah loveth Those who are just. (The Noble Quran, 60:8)”
Allah put faith in your heart to enlighten the bridge for those who can’t find theirs to cross it to safety. Yu’re Allah’s light on earth not whip. Do remember that Abdullah b. Amr b. al-’As reported that he heard Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Verily, the hearts of all the sons of Adam are between the two fingers out of the fingers of the Compassionate Lord as one heart. He turns that to any (direction) He likes. Then ‘ Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: 0 Allah, the Turner of the hearts, turn our hearts to Thine obedience.
“Qur’an” is a holy book.It’s a God-given gift to children of Adam and Eve to lighten up their path full of thorns sprinkled by saitn.Prophet Muhammad blessings of Allah be upon him and his progeny , is the seal of prophets and so is his miracle “Qur’an”.
Qu’ran is sent to all mankind not just the Arabs.”O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other. Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well-acquainted. (The Noble Quran, 49:13)”
Since it is God’s divine words,it’s prohibited to touch ,carry ,or recite Qur’an if one’s body is not pure.One must make wudu before reading it . And when reading Qur’an, a muslim must put it on his/her laps or on something in front of him ,not on the floor out of reverence.
Reading Qur’an is blessing
-Qur’an is Muslim ‘s intercesor.
-Your status in heaven is determined by the amount of Qur’an you memorize .
-There are ten rewards for one single letter you recite from Qur’an.
-Allah loves you most.
-It’s a remedy for physical and psychological illnesses as well.
*As muslim women, Christians are required to wear a veil or hijab
open the Bible to the First Epistle to the Corinthians, chapter 11. Read verses 3-10.
“But I would have you know that the head of every man is Christ and the head of the woman is the man, and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying with his head covered, disgraces his head. But every woman praying or prophesying with her head uncovered disgraces her head, for it is the same as if she were shaven. For if a woman is not covered, let her be shaven. But if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, let her cover her head. A man indeed ought not to cover his head, because he is the image and glory of God. But woman is the glory of man. For man was not created for woman, but woman for man. This is why the woman ought to have a sign of authority over her head, because of the angels.”
*Like in islam, Adultery and fornication are punished by death
f a man happens to meet in a town a virgin pledged to be married and he sleeps with her, you shall take both of them to the gate of that town and stone them to death?the girl because she was in a town and did not scream for help, and the man because he violated another man’s wife. You must purge the evil from among you. (Deuteronomy 22:23-24)
*polygamy is not prohibited in christianity tooDeuteronomy 21:15-16
If a man has two wives, and he loves one but not the other, and both bear him sons but the firstborn is the son of the wife he does not love, when he wills his property to his sons, he must not give the rights of the firstborn to the son of the wife he loves in preference to his actual firstborn, the son of the wife he does not love.
There are many areas in which Qur’an and the bible meet and this stems from the fact that they’re both sent from one God and to convey one global message; the welfare of humanity
