I had a strange dream

I had a strange dream?

I woke up one morning after a strange dream. I dreamt that I was walking in the countryside up a gentle hill and on reaching the top. I found that I was looking down on to a grassy meadow.

In the meadow I saw three men who appeared to be walking round in circles, I could tell that they had been doing this for some time, as the grass was flattened and bare soil was to be seen places. Every time one of the men came close to another man who was also walking round in a circle, they seemed to be shouting at each other and waving their arms and fists? A rather strange sight to behold.

Persecuted and Forgotten?

Persecuted and Forgotten?

No I am not talking about Muslims who feel hard done by? I am talking about Christians.

Christians – already the world's most persecuted faith – are suffering worse persecution, violence and intimidation.

The Revival’s Guide to Ramadhan

The Revival Team

What is Ramadhan?

Ramadhan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. During this month which is either 29 or 30 days, Muslims all over the world fast by abstaining from food and water from dawn until the sun sets.

Ramadhan is a blessed month in which the Holy Quran was first sent down as a guide to mankind with clear signs for guidance and judgement between right and wrong. It is also a time when the gates of Paradise are opened, the gates of Hell-Fire are closed and the devils are chained up.

Why do Muslims fast in Ramadhan?

Fasting in the month of Ramadhan has been prescribed by Allah Almighty and is one of the five pillars of Islam. Muslims fast to show their submission, commitment and worship to their Lord.  

The Truth About Being A Single Muslim Mother

Author: 
By Misbah Akhtar

The issue of single Muslim mothers is fast becoming a prevalent one; with divorce on the rise it seems only logical that some of these statistics would also apply to Muslim households.

Why then are they not revered as they deserve to be and instead looked down upon and scorned by many communities?  Is it really seen as so contagious that girls from ‘respectable’ families should stay away from these women in case they too, catch it? 

Crimes In The Name Of God

My views on the Woolwich atrocity are exactly the same as the vast majority of the UK population - they are that of utter shock and disgust.  The thought that in this day and age people are STILL carrying out these crimes in the name of religion and their “God” is just beyond belief and to this day I still refuse to believe that any religion would sanction this.

I personally believe that this is used as an excuse in today’s society and a way of trying to justify what has been done and what people plan to do. I challenge anyone to read any religious scriptures and highlight where in those pages, it tells you to carry out these crimes in the name of God.

Editorial: What Have We Learnt From Woolwich?

Sajid Iqbal

Just when you thought terror and extremism in the name of religion in Britain had finally died down, it reared its ugly head in Woolwich, which shocked and disgusted the nation. Two crackpots committing a horrific murder happened to be Muslims and apparently did this barbaric act in the name of Islam.

Q. Some people say women are not allowed to work? Is that true?

By Shaykh Muhammad Salim Ghisa

A.

In the name of Allah the Most Beneficent and Merciful.

Allah has defined roles for men and women by looking at their strengths and weaknesses and assigning them with certain responsibilities. However, there is no where in the Shariah where there is a point blank refusal for women to work or for men not to do the household chores.
Both these duties are permissible and sometimes recommended depending on each of the situations.
