The Quran and Economic Environtmental Ethics

This is a great article I read on BBC News. It talks about how the people of Zanzibar (99% Muslim) are useing Islamic ethics to help save and keep the environtment healthy.

“One local fisherman summarised neatly why the religious message has succeeded where government decrees failed: It is easy to ignore the government, he said, but no-one can break God’s law.”

From the article: Eco-Islam hits Zanzibar fishermen


Iraq held it’s elections

And no attacks happened. Funny thing is, “masked gunmen” were guarding the polling stations. Very interesting, how America goes after these “so called terrorists” but then use them to help initiate a ‘stable’ Iraqi government.

In reality, the “masked gunmen” were Sunnis, trying to allow their Sunni brothers and sisters to vote, to show the shia that they aint bullshiaa’in (haha, jk to all my shia brothers and sisters).

I don’t know who exactly will become President, but I hope its a Muslim leader who is adherent to the teachings of Islam and open for re-building the country and ending any type of war. And most importantly: GETTIN THE US SOLDIERS OUTTA IRAQ!

InshaAllah (God willing)

Allah knows best.

Deeds are like Internet Cookies…

Except you can’t delete them. Our deeds, whether good or bad are written down. Records are kept of every action we take. Just like how every website we go to, they send a ‘cookie’ to a temporary folder. The difference is we can delete the internet cookies, but we can’t delete our ‘deeds cookies’.

We can’t eat them either!

(Edit: you can change your deeds, by repenting and doing good deeds to over write the bad deeds. You guys get the point.)

Kanye West: Muslim?

Has anyone heard Kanye West’s song, Heard ‘Em Say, featuring Adam Levine from Maroon 5? Well in that song, Kanye west goes “Allah hu Akbar”. If you don’t believe me, just look up the lyrics. You can’t tell by listening to the song, because he says it weird.

He goes: “…so I guess we just PRAY like the minster says Allah hu Akbar, throw em in hot cars…”

Click that to listen to the song. He says it at 00:28 into th e song.

But MR officialy declares, this is not a valid proof that Kanye West is muslim. So don’t start spreading rumors. Okay!? haha
