Actually, it is his first time here – so no real return…just sounded good with ‘Mack’.

MackQuigley is an unknown figure, whereas the Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw), is very well known.

In fact many people have adopted the way of the Prophet than Mack Quigley could even care to count.  More and more people are seeing past the fog of lies and distortions that some of the right-wing media and right-wing religious evangelists like Mack are creating daily, and have been doing so since the Prophet (saw) was sent to mankind – that’s right – mankind – because he is not a Prophet for the Muslims only.  Rather, he is the stalwart of Tauhīd (Unity of God) who is re-establishing the Abrahamic tradition for the followers of all true Monotheists – be they Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Bhuddist, or others.

This may confuse someone of Mack’s evangelical disposition because, judging from the content of his online presence, I doubt he is used to scholarly dialogue.

In fact, in his review of quite a few Muslim and some non-Muslim blogs, he hardly makes a cogent academic, or even quasi-historically accurate remark…   Read the rest of this entry »

We all know that January is the first month of the Year – this may be true for the Christians and for all who follow the Gregorian calendar.  Muslims, on the other hand, recognize and use the Gregorian calendar dated from the year, according to some Christians, of the birth of Sayyiduna ‘Isa (as), but do not recognize its validity for any purpose.   Muslims, and others who follow their own calendars use it to avoid any confusion and to remain somewhat ‘convenient’.

It is highly important that Muslims do not forget altogether that we have our very own and very distinct Islamic Calendar based on the lunar cycle – as opposed to the Gregorian calendar which is based on the Solar calendar.  There are many reasons why we should not forget the importance of the Islamic Calendar.  For example, many of the faraa-id (obligations) are tied to the Islamic months – if we do not track the months, therefore, we will not complete these obligations. And our practice of Islam will be under threat.  It is this, with which we measure the Islamic months and our obligations that are derived with certain times throughout the year.

Another example of the importance of the Islamic months comes in the form of the 5th and sanctimonious month of dhu-al-Hajj, which all Muslims recognize as the month in which muslims perform the holy pilgrimage to the House of Allah.   Hajj cannot be performed in any other month.


Similarly, the obligation of the fasts of Ramadan are tied with sighting the waxing crescent of the moon of the month of Sha’ban and the new crescent of the month of Ramadan.  If we miss either, then our Ramadan will be incomplete.  More relevant for our purposes now, is the fact that this month, the month of Rabīʿ al-Awwal, is the month that was written in history as the month of the birth of the Mercy, the Holy Prophet, the Chosen One, that Great Messenger, Muḥammad ibn Abdullāh, al-Muṣṭafā, ṣalla-Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam…

Books of Hadhrat Sayyidna Mirza Ghulam Ahmad al-Qadiani (as) in Arabic

 Sayyidna Mirza Ghulam Ahmad al-Qadiani (qaddasa Allaho sirruhu)

السلامُ عليكم و رحمة اللهِ تعَالَى و بَرَكاتهُ

Peace be upon You and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings

الحمدُ لِ اللهِ رَبِّ العَالَمِين

All Praise Belongs to Allah – Lord of the Worlds

نَحمَدُهُ وَ نُصَلِّي عَلَى رَسُولِهِ الكَرِم

We Praise Him and invoke blessings upon His Noble Messenger (saw)

This short Information page was provoked at the request of ‘nazimtableegh’ which can be read here.

I was very pleased to hear that many more people from the land and lingua-franca of our Noble Prophet (saw) are responding and are being blessed by Allah by guiding them to the Imam of this Age.

In an article in The Sunday Telegraph, Dr Nazir-Ali said that multiculturalism had turned some communities into “no go” areas. “Those of a different faith or race may find it difficult to live or work there because of hostility to them,” he wrote.

The Right Rev. Dr. Michael Nazir-Ali would do well to distinguish between cultural ‘no-go zones’ and religious.   Having travelled up and down the so-called ‘muslim’ areas in the country, I can attest to the fact that they are not ‘no-go’ zones for those of other faiths.  If anything, they may be ‘no-go’ zones on racial or ethnic grounds, but they are in no way created by Muslims, or by adherents of any other religious group.

Thank God – at least someone is impersonating Muslims in Pakistan??!!

Pakistan clerics persecute ‘non Muslims’Isambard Wilkinson (London Daily Telegraph)The two million-strong Ahmadiyya community, based in Rabwah in the Punjab, risks charges of “impersonating Muslims” under the country’s controversial religious laws. 

Shameen Ahmad Khalid, a community leader, said: “We have people serving long jail sentences for blasphemy or for ‘posing as Muslims’.”

In an era where one would be hard-pressed to find Islam being practiced in its essence, it should be a cause for celebration that someone is attempting to practice and promote the essential teachings of Islam!! Read the rest of this entry »

In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful

 

Assalaamu ‘alaikum Wa RahmatAllahe ta’ala wa barakaatuhu

Peace, Mercy and Blessings of Allah, the Most High, be upon You

I am an Ahmadi-Muslim living in London (note the latter part of the hyphenated word), and am a graduate in Law, with a Masters in International Islamic Law and Public International Law with Human Rights, and am currently slaving through my Bar Exams with the intention of ultimately becoming proficient and dually-qualified in Islamic Law and English Law.

I have started this blog for certain detailed reasons.  After much thought and much reluctance in starting a blog purely because everyone is ‘doing it’, I have started this blog – However, it is with justification (as opposed to having to much time – as I really do not have much time on my hands!!)

For those who would like to know further, you can find out more about me on the ‘About’ page.  Nothing special though.

Now, the main reasons for satrting this blog are as follows:

  1. There are many blogs and websites that refute Ahmadiyyat and the followers of Ahmadiyyat (known as Ahmadis – but commonly referred to as Qadianis in an attempt to vilify) and there are many that also provide rebuttals to such refutations.  However, I have posted responses to many (seemingly) fair-minded muslims (especially some that claim to be followers of certain Sufi Tariqahs) and, to my utter surprise, and disappointment, many have chosen to reject my comments on their blogs without reason.  As will be seen by readers, my views are not rude, nor do I use profane or abusive language – as is expected of EVERY muslim.
  2. There are many things that both Ahmadi Muslims and non-Ahmadi Muslims are not aware of  – some which are common – and some of which are of mere interest.  For this reason, I thought of posting links and articles on this site (or links to articles) which will broaden (if Allah so Wills) all our horizons and widen our reading.
  3. There are many things which affect Muslims in London and in the UK.  I hope that this blog will be one more platform which adds and reinforces the view that Islam and the West are compatible, and that this is something which Muslims should adopt and add to, obviously within certain immovable limits.
  4. I have some ‘opinions’ (in the loose sense of the word) on certain matters of Law with specific reference to Islamic Jurisprudence and International Law.  These are my readings from a semi-academic point of view.  When I speak to people about such matters, they express an interest and thus this part of the blog will be for them, as they always as me to repeat myself hwen introducing me to others of their friends.

So these are the reasons for starting the Blog.

I shall (if Allah so Wills) add more further.

For now I take your leave, as my Bar Exams deserve some of my time…
