The NFL has apologized for penalizing Muslim player for praying 

Another week done, another PR disaster for the NFL.

This one came in the middle of Monday Night Football, after Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah returned an interception for a touchdown. Abdullah is a practicing Muslim — he even skipped an entire football season to make a pilgrimage to Mecca — and prostrated himself in the end zone in prayer. The result? A 15-yard penalty for excessive celebration.

The apologized for this one quickly

Your Choices Define You.
— 

Your Thoughts.

Your Fears. 

Your Actions.

All controlled by You.

You are the only one in this Universe that controls Your Choices. 

Be Love.

Be Courage. 

Be Kindness. 

The choices You make define you. 

Be Your own God.

Islam doesn’t promote violence or peace. Islam is just a religion and like every religion in the world, in depends on what you bring to it. If you’re a violent person, your Islam, your Judaism, your Christianity, your Hinduism is going to be violent. There are marauding Buddhist monks in Myanmar slaughtering women and children. Does Buddhism promote violence? Of course not. People are violent or peaceful, and that depends on their politics their social world, the way that they see their communities, the way they see themselves.

"Attain the love of Allah, and the love of those who matter will follow."

The ‘God’ and ‘Gods’ Concept.
— 

Many believe in One ‘God’ 
Some believe in many ‘Gods”
Most Believe their ‘God ‘Is the “One True God”

  • Old Gods are Past mistakes and good deeds.
  • New Gods are the Gods of the Future that will be created in Your timeline.
  • God is Present. 

This ideal concept of ‘God’, is to believe in something So Good and So Great that it becomes Your drive to become enlightened by learning from Your Past and creating Your Future. 

If Your “God” demands You.

  • To Hurt others
  • To Murder in ‘His’ name.
  • To Create suffering for others because they “lack conviction.”
  • To Judge others.
  • To Trespass on others.

 You are following a Demon.

  • God is Light.
  • God is Life
  • God does not make other Suffer
  • God does not Judge
  • God does not Trespass. 

Start Teaching others Love by being Love.

Since 9/11, homegrown anti-government terrorists have killed more people in the U.S. than Islamic extremists.

But you won’t hear about that on Fox:

On the night of September 16, 31-year-old marksman Eric Frein was allegedly laying in wait outside the Blooming Grove police barracks in northeastern Pennsylvania, preparing to assassinate state troopers. Shortly before 11 p.m., Bryon Dickson was shot and killed as he walked towards his patrol car. Moments later, as he approached the barracks to begin his overnight shift, trooper Alex Douglass was shot and seriously wounded by a bullet fired from a .308-caliber rifle.

Described as a  “survivalist,” Frein disappeared into the Poconos Mountains woods where he’s been hiding ever since, eluding law enforcement and its massive manhunt, which includes hundreds of law enforcement officers with assistance from the FBI, the U.S. Marshals Service and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Considered “extremely dangerous” and possibly armed with an AK-47, officials were forced to close local schools in fear Frein might attack again. Lots of businesses in the area were ordered to stay dark, and some U.S. mail deliveries were suspended out of fear postmen might be exposed as possible targets for the shooter.

And what was the possible motivation for the killing spree?

"He made statements about wanting to kill law enforcement officers and to commit mass acts of murder," state police commissioner Frank Noonan warned the public at the time. Another official noted the shooter has a “longstanding grudge against law enforcement and government in general” dating back to at least 2006.

A friend was even more explicit.  “He was obviously a big critic of the federal government,” a friend name Jacktold CNN. (The friend did not give his last name.) “No indications of really any malice towards law enforcement in particular. Most of his aggression was (toward) the federal government.”

Sounds like homegrown, anti-government terrorism, right?

…But turn on Fox News and you don’t hear much about Eric Frein from the channel’s high-profile hosts. You don’t hear much about the anti-government zealot who murdered a cop, while trying to assassinate two. And you don’t hear evening hosts diving into Frein’s background trying to figure out what sparked his murderous streak.

There’s simply no interest.

In two weeks since the shooting, the Fox [has] mentioned Frein’s name in just six reports, and most of those were simply news updates that consisted of one or two sentences. Only one segment, which aired on On The Record With Greta Van Susteren, featured an extended conversation about the killing and the subsequent manhunt. In none of the six Fox reports however, were Frein’s vocal anti-government leanings mentioned, nor was there any suggestion Frein was a domestic terrorist…

In other words, on Fox News a Muslim who killed a co-worker in Oklahoma and who remains in police custody represents a much bigger story than a suspected anti-government assassin who killed a cop and remains on the run, eluding hundreds of law enforcement officials while terrorizing a Pennsylvania community.

“Sesungguhnya Allah akan membeli pada diri orang-orang beriman itu dirinya dan harta-hartanya dengan balasan syurga “.

Allah tidak pernah berjanji kepada sesiapa yang taat dan patuh kepadaNya akan bahagia dan senang di dunia yang sementara tetapi,
Dia berjanji kepada kepada sesiapa yang taat dan patuh kepadaNya akan bahagia dan senang di akhirat yang kekal selama-lamanya.

Mujahadah itu pahit, kerana Syurga itu manis.

NFL admits Muslim player should not have been penalized for touchdown prayer

Untuk Aku.
Ini tempat bagi aku,
Menyuarakan fikir dan rasa.

Pada yang mengenali, *terutamanya
Ada mungkin kata tak serupa laku,
Ada mungkin laku tak serupa kata,

Tolong ingatkan aku,
Hamba yang sering lupa,
Yang masih merangkak dan bertatih,
Mahu pulang pada Dia.

Terima kasih ingatkan aku untuk baca bismillah.
Hatta bila makan biskut atau meneguk air seteguk.

This weekend really showed me that Allah swt has placed new people in my life who will not only be great friends but who will strengthen my iman. Alhamdulillah❤️ #convert #islam #muslim

**NEW POST** 6 Tips to Help Lower Your Gaze

 

The eyes have desires that have a great tendency to want to be fulfilled, as if there is a gravity-like force that pulls the sight to the things we should not be looking at. Like gravity, those who resist will feel the force acting on them, while those who just go with the flow will feel little or nothing at all. Like gravity, it takes a lot of strength to escape it.

 

“Tell the believing men to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts. That is purer for them. Indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what they do. And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts…” [Qur’an 24:30-31]

 

I ask Allah [Glorified and Exalted be He] to give us the strength to lower our gaze and to protect us from inappropriate sights. Aameen!
