Islam: Hip-Hop’s Official Religion

UPDATES: Okay, I’m sorry my whole list is wrong, but every rapper listed is, was, and will be (InshaAllah) a Muslim. Many of them are 5 percenters and members of Nation of Islam, making them not under the category of Sunni Islam. I’m sorry to those people who I have confused, but this topic really facinates me. The effect Islam has on Hip-Hop is huge! Literally every rapper knows a Muslim and knows a little about Islam. Afterall, Imam Suhaib Webb first became interested with Islam through Hip-Hop music.
Ice Cube(in no particular order)
Freeway, Beanie Sigel, Lupe Fiasco, Nas, AZ, Mos Def, K Salaam, Swizz Beats*, Talib Kweli, Proof (inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon), Bizarre*, N.O.R.E. (Noreaga), Q-Tip, Ice Cube, The Roots, Public Enemy, KRS-One, A Tribe Called Quest, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Common, Salam Wreck, Akon, Ali, DJ Khaled from the Terror Squad (haha), Havoc of Mobb Deep, Mister Cee, Styles P*, Al’ Tariq (former member of the Beatnuts), Eve, T-Pain, Akil and Zaakir of Jurassic 5, and Everlast (former member of House of Pain) all have something common. They are all Muslims. Regardless of their lifestyles, lyrics and actions they have accepted Allah as their creator and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is His messenger. (*Rumor)

Lupe FiascoIslam is Hip-Hop’s official religion. Why? Whether rappers are Muslim or not, they’re lyrics are influenced by them. Afterall, rap was first developed as a tool to fight racism and to uplift the African-American community. Islam is the only religion in the world which unites all races. Christianity does not do it like Islam. Churches are very divided by race. You have black churches and white churches. In Islam it doesn’t matter whether you are black, white, brown, yellow or green, you can come into any masjid (mosque) and pray. Rap is heavily promoted and practiced by black people all across the United States. Black Muslims are the largest group of Muslims in America. Arab Muslims and Muslims from the Indian sub-continent don’t even come close to Black Muslims in numbers.

The Nation of Islam is a major factor as to why Black Muslims make up the majority of Muslims here in North America. Although, the Nation of Islam have totally different core beliefs from Islam, it opens the path for blacks to come to Islam. Like Imam Siraj Wahaj, who was formely a member of Nation of Islam, is now one of the most elite and top Imams in North America. The Nation of Islam should be given all credit in it’s relgious, spiritual and political influence over the hip-hop world. Louis Farrakhan had talk at the Hip Hop summit in 2001 challenging the hip-hop artists to improve the future of the youth that follow them by rapping about postive things in their lyrics to eliminate racism, stereotypes and bringing peace in urban communities and to their fans worldwide.

How do I know that all those listed above are Muslims? I (sadly) listen to most of their songs and heard their lyrics. Many of them praise Allah and declare their Muslim identity, while others say it in their biographies. Some are just word of mouth. Here are some proofs/quotes from some artists:

EveIslam is a beautiful religion. But right now, with my career and my life, I can’t live the Sunni Muslim way. I refuse to be a hypocrite and cover my head on Friday, go pray, and then the rest of the week I’m out cursing and drinking–and performing. So right now I’m just comfortable with God.
- Eve, female rapper and member of Ruff Ryders, in an interview

Beanie SigelMy heart in the faith I don’t practice,
I still pray along, forgive me for my actions,
Cause I still spit gangsta, think Muslim, act Kafir,
I can’t go on this way.
- Beanie Sigel from ‘I can’t go on this way’ (Album: B. Coming)

AkonSo what you know about how God comes first
And everything we do is for Allah.
- Akon from the song ‘Sengal’

NasA lot of rules, some locked in solitude,
Curse the day of they birthy confused, who’s to be praised?
The mighty dollar, or almighty Allah.
- Nas from the song ‘Ghetto Prisoners (Album: I Am…)

Q-TipTo the human beings with taste, sight, touch, smell and sound
Let’s deem it profound!
And prioritize this cause it was Allah’s wish
“Allah? I’m God.”
“No I don’t believe that. That’s a mystery.”
“If God is so good why does shit be happening to me?”
There’s divinity within because we come from the divine
A force that’s not seen but you feel it every time.
- Q-Tip (with Common) from the song ‘The Remedy’ (Album: Get on the Bus soundtrack)

The RootsMight act up, but I still can pass dawah
I’m usin’ new ways to try to reach these better days
Instead of tryin’ to take you under I just make you wonder
I still fast, make salaat, and pay zakat
I didn’t make Hajj yet, but that’s my next project
Livin’ two lives, one of turn and one with true lies
Keeping up hope knowing He’s answering to my du’as.
- The Roots from the song ‘The Spark’ (Album: Things Fall Apart)

CommonQu’ran and the Bible, to me they all vital
And got truth within ‘em, gotta read them boys
You just can’t skim ‘em, different branches of belief
But one root that stem ‘em, but people of the venom try to trim ‘em
And use religion as an emblem
When it should be a natural way of life
Who am I or they to say to whom you pray ain’t right,
That’s who got you doin right and got you this far,
Whether you say “in Jesus name” or “Alhamdulillah”
-Common (feat. Cee-lo) from the song ‘G.O.D. (Gaining One’s Definition)’ (Album: One Day It’ll All Make Sense)

N.O.R.E. (Noreaga) God’s reppin’ with muslums keep Islam safe
What’s your fate yo?
What do you believe what do you know?
-Noreaga (N.O.R.E.) (with Capone) on the song ‘Live on Live Long’

Who cares? I do! The hip-hop culture is part of the pop culture nowadays. It is everywhere. In the cities, the suburbs and the farm lands. Young boys and girls from the Queensbridge projects all the way to the Hamptons of Long Island and everything in between promote, practice (most try really hard) and enjoy hip-hop. With an Islamic influence, they can have a dramatic effect on the future and public image of Islam. Another reason, many Muslim youth are now heavily influenced by rap artists and are loosing their Muslim identity. InshaAllah, this will open up some of their hearts and realize that they should be proud that they are Muslim and try to be a better Muslim and still enjoy some ‘not-so-haram’ rap.

Side Note #1: All the listed rappers above are mainstream rappears, meaning there songs are played on the top radio stations, their music videos are shown on TV (MTV, BET, VH1, Much Music, etc). There are over 100 underground Muslim rappers. This post is about the popular Muslim rappers in the hip-hop world.

Side Note #2: Rakim, Eric B., Busta Rhymes, Brand Nubian and Wu-Tang Clan (members include RZA, GZA, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, and Method Man) are 5 Percenters, an off-shoot group from the Nation of Islam. I don’t believe they are considered Muslims, so may Allah guide them to true Islam, inshaAllah.

      alot of the names you listen arent muslims, they just have some islamic stuff in their songs.

    2. Mujahideen Ryder May 16th, 2006 at 4:24 am

      The only people from the list is probably swiss beatz and styles p. them being muslims is just heresay, but the rest are pretty public. many of them accept Islam as the true religion, but they may not practice it. i’ll leave it up to Allah to decide that.

    3. Azeem May 16th, 2006 at 9:54 am

      Only Malik B of the Roots is Muslim (whose lyrics were quoted) and he actually quit from the roots because of the fitnah that goes on at the concerts.

      Nas says he USED to be Muslim. And when he says that, even then he means 5%.

      Common says he appreciates Islam, but is not Muslim.

      Talib Kweli considers himself “Spiritual”, but is not a Muslim

      Why did you omit Mos Def? He used to be the poster boy for Muslims claiming that you can get into hiphop and maintain your deen. And he has tons of lyrics talking about islam.

      Eve makes me sick! ugh

    4. Asha May 16th, 2006 at 10:12 am

      I never heard about half of the people mentioned to be Muslims (I only know a handful of them alhamdulilaah) but even then…eve? Nas…most of these people are a public embarrassment, even if they are Muslims (allahu a’lam if they are)..I mean it’s good they speak about Islam in a positive way and they talk about it in their interviews coz it gets the idea of Islam not being foreign into their heads. May God lead them to the truth.

    5. Azeem May 16th, 2006 at 10:15 am

      The Lox are also Muslim.. they donated a wad of cash to a Masjid in Yonkers… the masjid told them sorry, but we can’t accept your money.

      Alot of these rappers are really confused.. Rza and Raekwon once came to a Masjid and made Jummah with like 10 gold chains on. The gold is not even the weird part…. its the fact that they are Mushrikeen attending Jummah.

      The reason Islam appeals to Hiphop artists is because they are fed up with the white man’s religion and see obvious truths in Islam. Listen to Suhaib Webb’s story of how he became Muslim he talks about how he was first introduced to Islam through hiphop artists:

    6. haseeb May 16th, 2006 at 11:12 am

      just because they say good things about Islam – that doesnt make them Muslim.

      and if in fact theys do know Islam is the truth – and still dont accept it – that makes them worse than a typical non-Muslim. They are essentially true kafirs then – (know the truth, but conceal it).

      And its not surprising at all to see these people in hip-hop take an interest in Islam. Their music comes from lyricrs written during times of deep reflection – and Islam is a religion “for those who think/reflect”.

      C’mon even George Bush has said that he respects Islam as a peaceful religion – according to your logic is he Muslim too?

      (FYI, I dont mean to take anything away from true Muslims like Mos Def, Everlast, etc. who are publicly Muslim. May Allah continue to guide them and grant them guidance and success in this life and in the hereafter.)

      Also please get your their-there-they’re/ your/you’re’s straight. Im sorry but thats really bothersome to read those type of obvious grammar mistakes. You’re making Stony Brook look bad!

    7. Adilah May 16th, 2006 at 11:18 am

      very intresting… but honestly i dont think any of us can say their muslim or not.

      Who are we yo judge?

    10. Shaikh~N~Bake May 16th, 2006 at 2:51 pm

      5%ers use music to spread their cult beliefs. Music in Islaam has already been forbidden and I would refer the brothers to read the book “The Islamic Ruling on Music and Singing in Light of the Qur’aan and the Sunnah” by Aboo Bilaal Mustafaa al-Kanadee.

      It is my belief that the record companies are purposely using the 5%ers to misrepresent Islaam. It seems the effort is to portray Islaam as a racist religion, so that the North American masses are confused as to what Islaam really teaches. Furthermore it is being used to portray Islaam as a “black thing” so that the “white” North Americans who listen to Islaam can feel excluded and expelled. This is due to the growing phenomenon of the growth of Islaam in North America and the large number of suburban “white” youth who imitate the urban “black” youth. Islaam is spreading in North America by leaps and bounds and its current stronghold of reverts (converts) seems to be in the African American communities. The portrayal of Islaam as a “black” religion would serve to segregate “white” North Americans from the way of truth which unites people on the basis of belief (‘aqeedah) and not on the basis of nationality, tribe, or race.

      The reason Islaam represents a threat to America is a socioeconomic one. The Muslim is forbidden from paying or accepting interest, this is a huge threat to the banks, which are based upon a system of interest. Also Islaam recognizes that only the Sharee‘ah (Islaamic Law) can rule and govern mans affairs- this represents a threat to democracy. And there are so many examples we could give but it is simply the matter that Islaam is a complete “Deen” (system of life) which is too strong to be contained or confined by such a consumer/materialistic based socioeconomic system that the very blending of the two ways of life result in an explosion in the numbers of people who choose to become Muslims and prefer that system of life over their own society.

      A person might think to himself that the above statement is due to an overactive imagination or due to paranoia. However when we see the movies which Hollywood has produced such as, “Not without my Daughter”, “The Siege”, “The Three Kings”, and “Executive Decision”. The idea does not seem so far fetched. Hollywood has even begun planning a movie, which casts Harrison Ford as the Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), in a biographical film based upon a Tunisian author’s modernist book about the Prophet! These people in the entertainment industry have no desire to portray Islaam according to what it teaches and they have absolutely no professionalism or ethics whatsoever when it comes to researching the proper facts so that Islaam and Muslims can be portrayed accurately.

      Now as far as Music and the 5%ers are involved let us look at a list taken from the 5%er website under the title “God-Hop” and ask yourself if a war against Islaam is taking place or are the Muslims simply paranoid? I conclude by presenting this list:

      haseeb, i guess u missed my point, my point is, islam has huge impact on the lives of these rappers and in general the black muslim community does.

      these are all mainstream rappers, i can get a list of over 100 sunni black muslim rappers that are underground (native deen, amir sulaiman, one be lo, etc.)

    12. Omer Khayyam May 16th, 2006 at 5:28 pm

      As salaam aleikum!

      To be honest I think this is an interesting topic. However, the mere fact that they DO NOT want to be seen as Muslims should be a major hint. And the fact that although they may have the same beliefs as Muslims, it is not reflected in their actions. If this were to be used to tell non-Muslims or Muslims, “Hey look he’s Muslim” then they may think this is a what a Muslim should be like.

      We should take the Shuyukh as our leaders and role models. Just like Imam Subaib Webb. And I can see your fascination with this I can also say that there is a possibility they may mention these things in their lyrics so that they become popular amongst Muslims. Allahu Alaam I ain’t gunna judge but this is an issue that will die Insha Allah.
      And as far as I can tell I would say hip-hop culture is dying…and Insha Allah Sunni Islam will be the next major movement as even the Christians are saying Europe will become fully Muslim in their lifetime (60 years? Insha Allah less) and since the African community in North America was the target of persecution they bounced back and created the hip-hop scene and now even non-African people want to be like them. Muslims are the new target of persecution and Insha Allah we will bounce back and grow tremendously.

    13. isra May 16th, 2006 at 7:33 pm

      ok MR.

      there= an adverb ..it refers to a location.
      their= possessive pronoun and ALWAYS describes a NOUN.
      they’re= a contraction of they+are.

      your= also a possessive pronoun.
      you’re= contraction for you+are.

      get it? :-)

      i know. i’m an english freak.

    14. Yaser May 16th, 2006 at 9:10 pm

      More commonly, there is a pronoun. I like pronoun better than adverb, cause adverb makes no sense, although I’m sure officaily in some grammar book thats what they say. English Grammarians are whack. I went there. There is not describing the going, its reffering to where you are going, which is a pronoun of the location, ie I went (to the market). () Can be replaced with “there.” I think its called a proform in modern syntactic theory. Anyways, I forgive Amir of all grammatical mistakes, he’s guyanese they don’t speak English. They speak Guyanese, if you can correct his Guyanese correctly, then I’ll let you correct his English.

    15. ReggaePoweredDC2 May 17th, 2006 at 4:01 pm

      I didnt know there was a language called Guyanese. I thought Guyanese spoke English.

    16. Fabulous May 17th, 2006 at 9:09 pm

      lol…Guyanese ppl DO speak english, but they speak caribbean style…its pretty cool/////i didnt know MR/Amir was Guyanese…learn somthin new evryday..lol :)
      as for the rappers being muslim and all ….one thing is for sure, Eve is no muslim ….shes nearly naked in one of her videos….more then one accually, some of them may juss be muslim by name, not by faith, then again …alluhu alim, god knows best.///Grammar really, really, really sucks :) :)

    17. ReggaePoweredDC2 May 17th, 2006 at 11:48 pm

      If they say they are Muslim, I dont see why we cannot believe them. Like Eve, she says her lifestyle doesnt fit the Sunni way. So if she truly believes in Allah and Prophet Muhammad (sws) and everything else … she is Muslim, just not a good one.

      Its one thing to judge thier actions and behavior, but not thier belief, because none of us truly know.

      And I am sure we ALL have at least one friend or family member who is not a good Muslim.

    18. Yaser May 18th, 2006 at 1:27 am

      Guyanese is, in my opinion, a pidgin at this point. Give it another 25-50 years, it will be a creole seperate from English. Thats, if they dont force everyone to speak more proper English.

    19. rooq May 18th, 2006 at 2:39 am

      I’ll always remember Styles P. from his lyrics in that LOX song, “Wild Out.” I can’t see how Islam influened his lyrics…

      (Styles)
      I pray to Allah
      But I’m too foul to go to the mosque
      And if it’s beef, I’ma murder you and go to da squad
      Holiday Styles
      Screw ni**as far as they rap
      I let my shotgun ball ya bat
      Make ya coffin outta ya plaques
      And bring ya ice to hell
      Y’all f*** around dis album, I’ll do life in jail
      And if you under 21, you shouldn’t listen to dis
      You hate a ni**a, go and kill him while he takin a s***

    20. mujahideenryder May 18th, 2006 at 2:53 am

      yeah me either, i dont see much effect Islam has on styles p. lyrics.

      he’s just straight up hood

    21. isra May 18th, 2006 at 1:56 pm

      uh yaser .. you will “let me correct his english” i need your permission?

      and there IS an adverb, it modifies an adjective, verb, or another adverb. adverbs dont DESCRIBE verbs- they modify verbs OR adj’s or other adverbs. some people do have issues understanding how there can be classified as an adverb, and yea honestly alot of them say that it only qualifies as an expletive- but it is an adverb and MOST DEF NOT a pronoun.

      a pronoun has to be CLEARLY understood as a subsitute for an antecedent noun- there cannot do this, therefore it is not a pronoun. ONLY “THEIR” is a pronoun. for example : “Mary and John’s car is red.” if you wanted to replace Mary and John’s with a pronoun you would put “Their (possessive pronoun) car is red” not “There car is red.”

      or if you tried to replace the market with “there”- its not clearly replacing “the market” the market would be a specific location- if you change the market to “there” its making it vague and does not describe the specific noun, thus ruling it out as a pronoun.

      thank you, come again.

      ahem.

    22. mujahideenryder May 18th, 2006 at 3:00 pm

      ay isra and yaser, ayadese res up ya self na, me na ga listen if ayadese a act so. me ga talk how me wan fa talk and me ga spell how me wan fa spell, if non yall like it, me na care, cuz nuttin na go so when i run tings

    23. Fabulous May 18th, 2006 at 5:15 pm

      LoL! Thats wat i be talkin bout boi…//”ayadese res up ya self na”..LOL!! Thats som caribbean for ya now..///as for “ReggaePoweredDC2 “..ur right, i shouldnt be sayin that som of them rnt muslims, its not for me to say, thx for lettin me know.

    24. ReggaePoweredDC2 May 19th, 2006 at 8:28 pm

      Now that is how we should speak English LOL.

    25. Muslim June 1st, 2006 at 8:34 pm

      Islam is not hip-hop’s official religion for 2 reasons:

      1 Musical instruments are haram.
      2 Nation of Islam, 5% etc. are not Islam.

    26. General August 15th, 2006 at 11:48 am

      I believe that there is only one God, ALLAH, and Muhammad is his last messenger. This is what every muslim practicing muslims, say’s. Then it does stop there, the next step is to follow the Qur’an and Sunnah. That menas smok’in weed, andsellin it, rapping about screwin evryone you see, killing someone for no reason, and hanging wit people who don’t have much respect for Islam, now a days! But ALLAH is the judge, and he knows, but if they die the way there going, there’s only one place their going. But for the ones who are true muslims! Not nation of islam or 5 percenters, I’m behind them, not some of their behvior!

    27. Fatal Skillz September 4th, 2006 at 7:35 pm

      Salam, if tehy Msulim then they shudnt be rapping wiht a Lucifer beat(Iblies Beat) if they do it with anotehr kind, adn if they have women and signatures that there doing sins then tehy get a lot of sin

    28. Fatal Skillz September 5th, 2006 at 4:56 pm

    32. Fatal Skillz October 25th, 2006 at 5:01 pm

      it wouldnt be so good if they turn muslim, but if they do then INSHALLAH, its just that there gonna represent islam, and people will think the worng way and yeah

    33. Muslimah November 8th, 2006 at 9:33 am

      I’ts not our job to judge people, it’s God’s job. If someone says that he/she is a muslim then you can’t and shouldn’t frown upon that. We all sin. No man is better than another. So may Allah swt guide our hearts to the true path of Islam and make our Ummah strong. Only God knows what’s in every man’s heart so we shouldn’t dare to say if someone is muslim or not. We don’t own that right.
      I wish all my muslim sisters and brothers the best and I wish that the non-muslims will become muslims. Peace!

    34. Latif Hassan Ad Dannanu November 15th, 2006 at 7:44 am

      I completely and wholeheartedly agree with what Muslimah said.

      “However, the mere fact that they DO NOT want to be seen as Muslims should be a major hint”

      Yes, that is quite insulting.

      However I agree that we should not judge their actions, no one is perfect except Allah. And only Allah knows what they believe in their hearts.

Especially white people dey do a lot of race aginst black,arabz,or wuteva. Juz bcuz of dere skin color or religion. But trust me u aint gotta be afraid to say u iz muzlim. Let’em hata’z hate.

      We are all slaves of Allah and muslims should fight for their religion and land.We are also soliders for Allah.God put us on earth so we can prey for him.

    39. Muhammad Outabachi January 13th, 2007 at 6:34 pm

      THE WAY OF LIFE We should work our way to the top mentaly not physically.What I mean by that is that you dont have to be famous to go to heaven.You have to show Allah that you care.We are working our way to the road to glory but before we do that we have to go threw life and life is a big responsibility.Life is a big issue for our future those who possess honor nobility will not benefit.Then comes death and our spirits will live on.Those who didnt care the time will come whene they will beg desperatly.Those who fed the poor,had respect for others,and did what Allah told them to do they will live again to meet ALLAH and then they will have fun and joy in heaven and thats what I call the way of life

    40. Shireen Hassan January 22nd, 2007 at 12:33 am

      I think we should all believe in Allah. I mean, I feel sorry for the disbelievers, they will go to hell for more then 1,000,000 days. So Akon if you see this or anyone, if you don’t be a good muslim, you will go to hell for one year and each day is like 50,000 years Actully, I think Akon is a muslim. He prays and says du’a, so that makes him a muslim.

      A true Muslim is a Muslim who obey Allah laws not man made Laws like Hadith I’m Nuwaubian(Ansar) I know what true Al Islam it’s. Al Qur’an 61:14 and 3:52 say to be Ansar and not Ansar are not christian they are Muslim(One of Peace) Prophet Muhammad and His Followers was Ansars Al Qur’an 9:100,9:117 and 59:8 also Allah is a Ansar Al Qur’an 3:150 and 4:45 so why ain’t you sunni’s if you love Allah be what Allah a Ansar we Nuwaubian are Ansars.

    43. E.T. Hakim January 22nd, 2007 at 1:17 pm

      I meant to say no Ansar are not Christian they are Muslims(One of Peace)

      Peace or should I say Salaam(because I have not taken my Shahada yet, Inshillah one day), this is an interesting topic but I just want to remind those who read the previous postings that they shouldn’t get too caught up in who is Muslim/Momin, 5%er,or NOI because at the end of the day these rappers/entertainers are individuals just like the rest of us and their actions or lack of do not represent Islam as a whole. On Judgement Day we will be standing alone and be held accountable for OUR Own actions. Let he who has not sinned caste the first stone/ only Allah alone knows what is in the hearts of men. Peace

    47. E.T.Hakim March 9th, 2007 at 3:10 pm

      To Jamaal-U-Deen from E.T. Hakim true shahada is in your heart that you already know that Anu(Allah) is The Most High Deity and give credit to all of his Prophets, Apostles, All of his Holy Books and his Angels call in Egipt Neteraat, in Sumer Anunnaqi, Arabic Allahuma as in Hebrew call Elohim which all a pl. Call by some The Gods all created by Allah than you are a muslim one of peace ’cause Al Islam is the state of peace salaam means peace Al Salaamu lakum rahmantuhu Allah ta’ala wa barakatuhu

      Assalamu alaihkum

      I’d just like to state there is a hadeeth in which the Prophet (S.A.W) says something to the effect that there will come a time in my that people will make permissible the use of musical instruments.. so on the whole I don’t think that getting into music regardles of the genre and/or impact it has on people. I do however also agre that we shouldn’t jusdge people because of their actions because in the Qur’an Allah (S.W.T) says something to the efect… let not one group of men laugh at another group of men or let one group of women not laugh at another coz the latter may be better than the former. I say as long as one admits that one is doing wrong, and has the intent of changing then insha-allah allah will guide him to reform whereas if we do wrong and try to justify it then how will we reform? Allah (S.W.T) guide us all insha-allah… coz none of us are perfect!

      As-Salamualaiakum and Peace -

      I’ve been reading some of the comments in regards to some of the artists who say they are Muslim – To discredit any of these artists due to their atire and lifestyle is dangerous move. Who are we to say whether they are bad muslims or good muslims, or whether they are Muslim or not. As long as they are not committing shirk – and believe in the One God, ALLAH SWT, and the final Messenger and Prophet, Muhammad, SAW – they are Muslim – we all strive to be MOMIN – one of the biggest things we as a Muslim community do is JUDGE – One of my boys came into the masjid with a gold chain on at the MCA in Santa Clara (BIGGEST ISLAMIC CENTER IN SILICON VALLEY) and all hell broke loose. Let’s leave it at this – CALM DOWN YA’LL!!! Strive for excellence in the Way of Allah, tell the truth, love one another, have Faith, Make Salat, and do it all for the Sake of our Lord and Creator. Stop Judging – and Start Loving! Ma’Salama.

      There are about 1.5 billion muslims in the world. When was the last time a Muslim came up to you and said: I’m going to kill you, you infidel?

      its sad , ive seen ppl saying islam doesnt allow music , eve aint muslim , he talks about it but isnt , the fact is they are incredibellly brave for admititing relation to Islam in america, a muslim cannot judge another muslim weather he is good or not , its only god who can judge ,hence when rappers are promoting aspects of it why should it matter they are “real muslims” or not. But Will Smith also stood up for islam and spoke against the racist stereotypyng with muhamaad ali , should he be a “real muslim” to do that ?

      Islam is for all races by the way , in Bosnia is a majority muslim country and they are all white , cat stevens is white and had converted to islam to, the fact is people will quote oout of context in relation to these taliban type mentalitty which is not islam.

      In my opinion Hip HOp is more poetry than music, is a poem recited to a beat. I’m puertorican, muslim, mc and producer here at the island. The hip hop scene in puerto rico is really underground and the mc’s here stick to political and social issues. We leave the proffanity and cursing to the reggaeton cats, and I had no problem moving my units because i’m a muslim. matter fact it help my crew out because puertoricans identify a lot with the palestinian cause. Hip hop can be used for Dawa, but the muslim involved in this bussines MUST be strong with the temptation due to people ignorance of the prohibitions we got as muslims. If a muslim decides to rap he must level the time he spend doing rap with the time spent on worship and he must get as much knowledge as he can so it could be reflected in his rhymes. In my case I got tracks explaining How jesus is seen in islam, I got another one talking about the shari’a and another one comparing the situation between u.s. an puerto rico ans israel and palestine. Theese are tracks that both muslims and non muslims like. If we going to judge a rapper we should judge the intentions of the rapper, first.
      there ar site like muslimhiphop.com that show a lot of real islamic rappers and you can check my site http://www.borislam.co.nr my partner raps in english

      one true Muslim is Napoleon – hebecame a true Muslim and left the rap game subhanallah- he now gives lectures to guide the youth

      there is only one god and to get
      to him you have to believe in christ

      qo’ron is mixed muhamond whatever his name was
      took two religions christian and jew and that’s how he made the islam religion example look at some of bible’s names like moses,marry,etc. look at in general they seem to not have faith.

    71. muhammed July 18th, 2007 at 4:34 am

      hey y’all Selamun Aleykum..

      They may be muslims or not. and its not up to us to judge these things… you all know that unlike other religions, in Islam no one can get between god and subject;) so better cool down…

      however, it is nice that these people talk about Islam.. if popular figures talk about islam hen it would be familiar to non-believers, and who knows maybe this would cause them to believe!

      Don’t go on those guys too much… I mean, sadly, how many of us can really live like a rwal muslim? I myself sometimes feel ashamed of my deeds… The important point is to repent… For Allah is the most merciful.. He is Rahman and Raheem…

      look at muslim people now days
      they don’t have a faith.
      look at the islam religion doing
      in planet earth.its all bad things
      bible made it clear the only way a human could get to heaven is throught jesus christ. all you have to do is
      say jesus welcome into my life that’s it and believe in ten commendment. there is gaurantee u will reach up to heaven when u die.all these other religion that are goin on right now into world bible mentioned as deception.

      just because they say good things about Islam – that doesnt make them Muslim.

      and if in fact theys do know Islam is the truth – and still dont accept it – that makes them worse than a typical non-Muslim. They are essentially true kafirs then – (know the truth, but conceal it).

      And its not surprising at all to see these people in hip-hop take an interest in Islam. Their music comes from lyricrs written during times of deep reflection – and Islam is a religion “for those who think/reflect”.

      C’mon even George Bush has said that he respects Islam as a peaceful religion – according to your logic is he Muslim too?

      (FYI, I dont mean to take anything away from true Muslims like Mos Def, Everlast, etc. who are publicly Muslim. May Allah continue to guide them and grant them guidance and success in this life and in the hereafter.)

      Assalamualaikum bros and sisters.

      It really refreshing to see a conversation about Islam without insults bandied about.

      The core I believe is believing in Allah/God as being the only creator-the almighty. And Muhammad (PBUH) as his final messenger ‘Khatimun Nabiyeen’ and of course after the death of the prophet (PBUH) everything else became a matter of opinion and to this day it is.

      The strongest message I’ve read here is that we cannot judge another, if one says they are Muslim then lets leave the deciding of if they are good or not to Allah.

      Honestly from my heart I feel I have no right to judge another whether they be shia, sunni, sufi etc simply because I do not know any other truth other than the shahada.

      It doesn’t matter if eve or whoever are ‘icky’, what matters is that they speak positively bout Islam. That if nothing else is admirable. Nowadays you can’t mention Islam without people getting paraniod that you must be harbouring some secret plot to blow up the world. Let those who do such deeds answer to Allah. the rest of us shold have patience and lead lives that lead us to heaven. I wish you all the best of luck but you gotta find your own way there.

    83. umar ali August 28th, 2007 at 1:04 pm

      First of all As salamu alaikum to the muslims.
      If these rap artist want to be muslims they need to try to learn what islam really teaches. They have things that they MUST do if they are serious about this religion. This faith has conditions, it’s not a do as you wish type thing here. If people reject parts of this religion and accept other parts this is not what Allah(swt) will accept. EX you can’t say i am a muslim but i will not pay ZAKAT or I will not fast or i will not try to do hajj or i think it’s possible that a prophet other than Muhammah(pbuh) might show up. Point is that we have to UNDERSTAND this religion. If a person is weak in faith that is another issue but we Do have things that we have to accept or we simply can’t be muslims at all (only in name)

      2ND we can judge people, you can’t simply walk up and tell people they are Kafirs but you can judge for yourself. If you see a so called muslim going against quraan and sunnah then you know he or she has some serious problems. EX if a muslims says he wants to pray in a manner that (prophet) Muhammad(pbuh) has forbidden. IE turning his back towards the kabba or doing DHUR and ASR prayer aloud or FAJR Maghrib and ISHA silent or simply just NOT PRAYING AT ALL. I don’t think these rap artist make 5 prayers a day but Allah(swt) knows best. POINT is ISLAM has things that can take a person outside the fold of islam and the NATION and the 5%ers have belief that do not allow them to be muslims. You can’t think that FARRAD muhammad was GOD in human flesh and call yourself a muslim. These guys would not even know about the quraan if it were not for PROPHET MUHAMMAD(pbuh) son of Abdullah of mecca born the year of the elephant. I hope this helps and anyone who wants proof for what i have said can write a reply and use my name UMAR ALI.

      to fred who likes to talk about Islam not being the truth. Fred, you need to get your facts together my friend. Jesus(pbuh) NEVER NEVER NEVER told a single person he was a GOD or a CREATOR of anything so why are you making things up? Islam is not a mixture of anything. Again in order for people to be considered muslims they have to do certain things like for starters the 5 pillars. If they can’t even do these simple things HOW can we claim them as muslims. Don’t just claim them as muslims because they have money and are cool and popular. If they say they accept that Allah(swt) is the ONLY true GOD and that Muhammad(pbuh) is the last and final messenger sent by Allah then we have something to work with. then they need to fast (ramadan)sept 13 2007 Pray 5 times a day, Try to make HAJJ and pay ZAKAT then they can be considered muslims. If they leave of just one of these things then they can NEVER be muslims. ABU BAKR the first leader after our prophet fought against people who claimed to be muslims for leaving off just one piller (zakat).. he fought against them and they were considered KAFIRS because they refused to pay ZAKAT. and thats just one of the 5 pillars. So don’t rush to put these guys inside the fold of islam when chances are that they don’t pray or go to jummah on friday, fast never did or plan to do hajj etc etc…. If they decide to be true muslims then good, but they still have to answer to Allah(swt) just like the rest of us. And the truth is we CAN judge people..the only reason you guys might think we can’t is because of what happened with usama bin zaid and the man he killed after he said with his tounge that he was a muslim….BUT islam means SUBMISSION and people who submitt to Allah are called muslims. Not just any tom dick and hank can simply say YO! i am a muslim dog word to god yo! this ain’t no SHAHADDA so get real…. ACTIONS are a part of iman (belief).

      I hope all of them become 100% muslims they can leave that 5% crap at the door cause ALLAH(SWT) don’t need no 95% kakir and thats for real!

      read up on ISLAM yall cause the time is close.

      yo thats my word. UMAR ALI

      To my knowledge Hip hop has no religion.

      Also how can Islam be the religion of hiphop when Islam was used by the Arabs to enslave Africans centuries ago.

      To my knowledge Islam has played a big part in persecuting Africans….AND STILL DOES.Muslims started to invade Africa 8 centuries before the Europeans even got there. They enetered via North Africa and spread accross the North, to the West part of Africa.

      In fact Muslims played a part in selling Africans to Europeans.

      People are reverting to islam in the name of hiphop [inspired by the so called hiphop groups] yet in terms of practice they’re zero.. Thas waste..

      Like they have a cool reason to be associated with ISLAM “Dude im muslim and so are them cats, you gotta check um out, they’re dope, DOPE” (raah, guy numbah 2 “So tell me about your religion?”) *confused* “Well Allah is one and Muhammads the Prophet, feel me, i aint had the time to look into it, im concentratin on my joints right now but someday”

      Get the picture?!

    92. Souljah September 23rd, 2007 at 11:01 am

      The title is stupid, how can it be hip hop’s true religion, only a handful of rappers actually follow the faith.
      Come to think about it, same goes for christianity, look at all the so called christian rappers, big jesus piece round they neck and they doin all kinda nastiness!
      Hip hop doesnt have a religion, it is a form of art which is used by allsorts of people to express themselves through.

      Look at the ones who were born muslim, Akon, after what he’s doing out in Trinidad with young under age girls, i dont think any of us muslims should proudly claim him to be a true muslim!

      And people judgin Eve can shut up, she said it like it is, she did not want to become a cliche, ‘the female rapper with islam in her life’, Islam is already gettin bad deal out here in the west she didnt wanna add to it, so she honestly stated she cannot follow it living the life she is living.

      Salaam. It is true that NOI & NGE is not authentic Islam but these groups, especially NOI were very influential in waking up our black people and teaching us that we are more than just descendants of slaves. And these groups, again, especially NOI, were great stepping stones to orthodox Islam…however I think these groups have outlived their usefulness. As far as who is a real Muslim or not only Allah knows. A Muslim is one who submits to God and just because one does not submit the way you believe they are supposed to submit does not make them any less Muslim…that is between them and God and not for us to judge because we know not. Ibrahim (PBUH) was a Muslim yet he had no Quran, he did not pray 5 times a day let alone towards the East, he did not fast during the month of Ramadan…yet he was still a Muslim who legend says sits at the left hand of God…in other words God has so much respect for Ibrahim (PBUH) that He sits at his right.

      there is ayah in alquran that allah says u dont enter heaven by your work but u enter heaven by my mercy

    97. umar ali October 5th, 2007 at 10:54 am

      first of all, man where to begin? ahhh islam has 5 pillars and leaving just one of them off makes you a NON muslim. EX after the death of our prophet(pbuh) some people decided that they would not pay ZAKAT and they were fought by abu bakr as-sadiq. Next emaan is heart, tounge and limb and this def came from ibn Abbas the cousin of the prophet…so basically it takes all three belief with the heart,,saying you believe in Allah(swt) and Muhammad as the LAST messenger and proper action with the limbs. So just from the def of emaan most of these people are not muslims at all. They simply have a muslim name or they prictice some parts and leave off other parts of the religion. (accept a part of the book and reject another part of the book) So I hope they get it together but they have alot of work to do. Also Islam does not accept all forms of MUSIC especially wind and string instruments so music with this is HARAM. I forgot the ayat in quraan that speaks about senseless past times but Ibn Abbas said about the Ayat “walahi it is MUSIC 3x….the reason for this was because a man hired a beautiful woman to sing music to the arabs to LURE them away from listening to quraan. Allah revealed the ayat after thei event and it happened in Mecca during the first 13 years… Also surah LUQMAN has ayats that says that Music is haram (wind and string)

      also some wrong info was posted about Islam and slavery…… and i don’t have time to go into that right now but i will say that slavery in Islam was not the same type slavery as used by america.

      If muslims ever want to be succesful they have to first know who is a muslim and what & who is a kafir….some actions make you a kafir even if your name is Muhammad and you were born to muslim parents in a muslim country and thats real.

      we need to stop be so liberal!
      truth is truth like it or leave it.

    98. umar ali October 5th, 2007 at 11:17 am

      Islam promotes freeing slaves….Bilal the muathan of the prophet(pbuh) had his freedom purchased by Abu bakr the 1st Califa after after the death of Muhammad(pbuh)… Islam encouraged the believers to buy freedom or to release people if they already had slaves. I hope this is clear.
      Final comment i think is that if these people really love Islam then why are they not making better music and trying to bring people to sunni Islam as yall call it.

      Some people like to include any and everybody inside the fold of islam even people who curse the prophet and his companions or make haram halal but this is a differant issue i guess.

      Peace yall and Ramadan Mubarak & eid Kareem inshaAllah.

The 5%ers are a splinter group from the Nation so same story with them.. and this bahai crap is just more crap…If you want the real go to a sunni masjid or start at some real websites. islamway.com nadeemsdownloads.com

      JELOROC
      has alot of misinformation in this last post. First of all Prophet abraham did pray but he was praying according to how he was commanded by Allah(swt) at that time. He didn’t just make up a prayer and role with it. AND the muslims didn’t always face the quibla or kabba until they were told to face it by Allah(swt). ALL prophets fasted because the quraan says fasting was prescribed for you the way it was prescribed on those before you so ….Abraham did indeed fast. and lastly a muslim is a person who submitts to the WILL of Allah(swt) so all prophets were muslims but the followed the laws or sharia that Allah had given them. Islam is not a do it yourself religion. we have quraan and we have sunnah..and we do judge…if we dont judge here on earth who will decide what is right and wrong or halal or haram according to quraan and sunnah. Muslims have to wake up and Enjoin the good and FORBID-PREVENT evil…how can you do this command of Allah without judging?

    102. Bro salaamz October 9th, 2007 at 11:38 am

      salaamz We do judge them, I guess i depends on what you mean by JUDGE.

      ALI ibn abu Talib was a JUDGE sooo i don’t see how anyone can say muslims DONT judge other muslims or the actions they do. When the prophet(pbuh) stood up to pray over the man abdullah inb salood the htpocrit, OMAR grabbed hold of the prophets clothes and asked o messenger of Allah(swt) will you pray over this man? he was a hypocrit…The prophet said he would pray janaza for him but Allah(swt) revealed an ayat saying that OMAR was correct in saying that this man was a hypocrit and that pray or janaza should not be made for him. We should have good manners about this issue but still we MUSLIMS have to be the ones who see right for right and wrong for wrong based off quraan and sunnah…if Muslims don’t judge then who will. Stop being SO liberal and enjoin the right and forbid the evil.

      This is one reason why muslims are in the state they are in today…This attutide has allowed people to do things that are WRONG and sometimes not even a part of islam but we say AHH WELL THATS ON HIM or THATS BETWEEN HIM AND ALLAH AND DO NOTHING BUT WATCH>

      so called muslims countries TURKEY bans the hijab and we still respect this ruling and call them a muslim country. A muslim country would not outlaw something that Allah and quraan have made a part of the religion….AND you determine a muslim country based on if they use sharia as law…The countries that have big populations of muslims are just countries with alot of muslims NOT MUSLIM COUNTRIES…so we judge them based on the actions they do not by the beautiful words they speak.

      we JUDGE by what Allah has revealed end of story.

    103. caring brother October 9th, 2007 at 12:27 pm

      ya Allah said you can’t call a person kafir because of the words or lyrics they say….I beg to differ and this is WHY we muslims have to judge. Ya Allah even says judging this way is the way of the khawarij. Khawarij were people who said people were KAFIRS if they did major sins. A major sin is one in which there is a known punishment such as adultry….. Khawarij were wrong for saying people were no longer muslims based on a major sin…we can always try to repent and ask Allah to forgive us even if we do a Major sin…But can you call a person a kafir based on what they say? YES and no.. The scholars are supposed to address this issue after they sit with the person who makes such a statement. Then certain conditions have to be met still. No harm can come to the sleeping man, or the crazy man or the child for saying a statement which could take them out of islam. So you and i should not go around calling people kafirs but we should know and judge people based on their actions. Ex if a man ask to marry my daughter and after talking to him i discover that he does not believe Muhammad(pbuh) is the final messenger then i have to say this man is not fit because of his belief to marry my daughter so i pass judgement on him without personally calling him any bad names. Or if he says for ex that nothing is wrong with making riba or alcohal halal..Both things are clearly wrong and i don’t have to have a scholar tell me that this man should not be allowed to marry my daughter..I judged him based on QURAAN AND SUNNAH WITHOUT CALLING HIM a bad name. Allah(swt) is the ONLY law giver so allowing this man to make riba and alcohal halal would like makeing him a rival to Allah(swt). Now a person who is a scholar for example could teach things that say the NATION or 5% ers agree with like this man or that man is a prophet after muhammad or even worse this man is GOD in the flesh and i think all of us would say this scholar is not a muslim based on his beliefs and teachings. So if sunni scholars go to this man and talk with him and try to correct his false teachings and he still continues to mislead muslims,,,they must pronounce him a KAFIR so that the muslims will be informed about his false teachings..and this is a protection for muslims in general.. So scholars have a responsibility that is heavier than that of the lay man like myself. They have to enjoin the good and FORBID the evil as to protect this deen and we have to play our role as well. Now back to the rappers…If a rapper is saying jesus is god or that Elijah muhammad is a prophet then we know that he is not a muslim. EVEN if he claims to be a muslim. Notice that EVE didn’t say anything was wrong with dressing like a muslim she only said she was not ready yet and did not want to be a hypocrit about it all. So YES these so called muslims rap artist do need to be careful about what they say especially when it comes to this religion of islam and the belief they have. They can say things that will make them a NON muslim or KAFIR so they have to watch out for this. Muslims believe certain things and something as simple as saying i don’t believe in angles or all the books or prophets can and will take people outside islam. This is not to be harsh or like the khawarij but just basic info brothers and sisters in islam.

      6 pillars of faith belief in Allah as the 1 true GOD belief in the angles, belief in the Devine books ALL the prophets ending with Muhammad(pbuh) the day of judgement and devine destiny. If you speak words that say you reject these pillars or you make Halal haram or haram halal then you will be view as a KAFIR…
      hope this helps

      There are many on the list that are not muslim. They may use some of teachings of Islam, but they are NOT muslim. However, there are two people on the list that are definitely muslim (in name, actions, and words).
      (1) Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest & Lucy Pearl fame). He is a praticing muslim (Sunni) and he was born and raised in Islam.

      (2) Lupe Fiasco (Wasalu) is also a muslim (born, raised and practicing). He’s one of nine children reared in Islam.

      Q-Tip (A Tribe Called Quest) cnverted to Islam in the early 1990′s.

      Now, Eve? Her name should have never been listed. She is NOT, nor has she ever been muslim. Styles P is another one.

      in the Quran, GOD said we should be known as the people preach good and eschew evil and the criteria for what is good and what is evil has been laid. it is by this criteria that we judge. but like some one wrote. we should judge within and pray that God reforms them. BEcause you never knoe what your trial from God will be. you might turn out worse than them.

    115. Bro Umar Ali November 6th, 2007 at 12:24 pm

      This is crazy, last time i can stand to remind people. I want them to be muslims just like you brothers and sisters do but the fact is. They have to do their part to be Muslims in the sight of Allah(swt) and that is what really counts. They need to know the 6 pillars of belief and the 5 pillars of islam and practice them. kool? If they do that then inshaAllah Allah(swt) will accept the good they do and forgive them any sins same with any of us me included. our own prophet wanted his uncle abu talib to be a muslim..even when abu talib was on his death bed, Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) was saying say La ilah illAllah muhammad rasoolAllah…and abu jahil was saying otherwise. finally abu talib said his last words “on the religion of abu MU talib” which means he wanted to die on the religion of his father. Now Abu talib protected prophet Muhammad during the early years in Mecca against the quraish who wanted him dead. He also went thru the boycott period with the muslims and he died the same year as Khadesia. He loved our prophet and protected him but still this was not enough to save him from the punishment of Allah(swt). His punishment is according to a sahi ahadith he will be given shoes to wear that are so hot that his brain will BOIL and this was the lightest punishment he could get. Now abu talib was indeed a good person and he even protected and raised our prophet(pbuh) like he was his own son. Abu talib is the father of Ali ibn abu Talib. So call who you want muslim but Allah(swt) knows best. I know yall know the story of the hypocrit…Our prophet was going to pray janazah prayer for him and Omar(ra) pulled him down and asked Are you going to pray over this man? He is a hypocrit…our prophet was later told BY ALLAH(ta) that OMAR was correct about the man being a hypocrit and that he should not pray for him. A muslim would never refuse to pray over his brother at time of death so you know this FAKE muslim was hithing but a KAFIR….Omar called it so dont think You should fool yourself into being sooo liberal that you just allow any tom dick and hank to call himself or herself a muslim. We should not go up to people and call them a kafir or tell other people so and so is a Kafir but we should know what it takes to be a muslim….6 pillars of emaan and 5 pilars of faith….hope that was helpful…

      one love salaamz

      Islam is a beautiful religion. But right now, with my career and my life, I can’t live the Sunni Muslim way. I refuse to be a hypocrite and cover my head on Friday, go pray, and then the rest of the week I’m out cursing and drinking–and performing. So right now I’m just comfortable with God.

      Christianity does not do it like Islam. Churches are very divided by race. You have black churches and white churches. In Islam it doesn’t matter whether you are black, white, brown, yellow or green, you can come into any masjid (mosque) and pray. Rap is heavily promoted and practiced by black people all across the United States.

      ^^^^
      this is all crap…the reason chirstianity has black churches n white churches seperate is eaither cos da church proceeding is practiced in a diff way or language or cos da church has originated from another country not cos dey discriminate dey all practice da same religion n have da same bibel…muslims r da 1ns who discriminate wif ur sunnies branch.how can u create such a website finkin dat the world wide web (except 4 ur fellow muslims)is gon hear u out.at least next time u do dat try n not make the bias so apparent.

      Asalam Aleykum to the muslims, its great that some of these rappers have learned that islam is the truth, however thats where the challenge begins. I mean, we can’t support rap music as way of living specially what these lyrics they send out and the more music ppl listen to.. more ghaflah(negligence spreads), the more sins r added on their part. So May Allah guide them and make it easy for them to be steadfast on deen of Islam and May Allah guide me and all the muslims.

      Assalamu Alaikum
      Im from Bosnia, and just wanted to say one thing, Allah (swt) clearly says in Qur an, surah Al Fath last ayah 29 : “Muhammad is the messenger of Allah; and those who are with him are strong against Unbelievers, (but) compassionate amongst each other. Thou wilt see them bow and prostrate themselves (in prayer), seeking Grace from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure. On their faces are their marks, (being) the traces of their prostration. This is their similitude in the Taurat; and their similitude in the Gospel is: like a seed which sends forth its blade, then makes it strong; it then becomes thick, and it stands on its own stem, (filling) the sowers with wonder and delight. As a result, it fills the Unbelievers with rage at them. Allah has promised those among them who believe and do righteous deeds forgiveness, and a great Reward.”
      you just have to read more Qur an and Hadith, as Allah says in Qur an:
      “O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the messenger, and make not vain your deeds!” (Surah Muhammad, ayah. 33)

      May Allah help all brothers and sisters, those that Allah (swt) described them: “..those who are with him are strong against Unbelievers, (but) compassionate amongst each other..”

      young muslims young muslims….today being muslim is just mere words? you can pray if you like, fast if you like, pay zakat if you like? Do the 5 pillars mean anything anymore or are we just MUSLIM by name?? If any of these people are muslim then Allah(swt) knows best but they need to try to carry themselves as muslims and be role modles. Taking a few islamic classes might help them spread some positive information. Truth be told we should not be listening to music to begin with especially wind and string instruments to be more specific. Where is the ayat you ask..its in surah luqman and check the tafsir ibn katheer for the meaning of sensless past time. if anyone wants to learn more about islam online for free from live TEACHERS then go to http://www.adly.net and try it for one week…

      i love yall you my real brothers and sisters in alislam…i ask Allah to help both you and me and forgive our sins and keep us on the siraltal mustaqeem………. aaaameeeeennnn!

      Ice Cube is my favourite rapper, and he is the best rapper of all time.

      99% of those people, though are not really following the true religon of Islam as many of them admit it. May Allah guide them to the truth and hopefully they could be more like Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him.

      Deliver A Messiah, “Mistaken Identity” by Agron Belica brings forth an elaborative examination of who was put on the cross. Many theories suggest that the son of Mary (aka Jesus Christ) was not the person placed on the cross, but someone other than Jesus Christ himself. The author takes you through an examination paving ways of new insight of who might have been put on the cross.

      To contribute to the present work, the author investigated and researched to seek the truth about the assumptive facts leading up to what people of Christendom believe to be the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The Bible and the Koran are the main resources used as references formally presented in use of persuasive arguments and theories of why the author strongly does not believe that the son of Mary was killed nor crucified.

      The author has made every effort to be as unbiased and objective in presenting the facts and interpreting the events in this present work. The author is not trying to stir up controversy, but only wishes to lead people towards what might be considered the truth about the events believed about the crucifixion. The author strongly believes that the prevailing powers during that era have camouflaged the truth. The cover-up of the crucifixion with a false pretext was to lead the masses of people in the past and at present to believe, that the son of Mary was really crucified, by the leading elite that was influenced by the Jewish religious hierarchy at that time.

      Salaam,
      Myself I have met a lot of people that start to learn about islam through rap, It realy catches their attention. I guess it helps because a lot of people grow up to these rapers and they take there words very seriously. Well my favorite was a famouse raper that did songs with 2pak Shakur, he was napolion, today mashallah he has become very strong in islam and it is like he was born with it.

      I have like no idea why some of you ppl are saying that music is haram..:S ??
      its actually NOT. its just a sin when your doing something else when your supposed to pray at that time.. so like if i listen to music instead of praying while its PRAYING TIME- thats haram but listening to music is not haram PERIOD.

    141. Jamal Virani December 9th, 2007 at 5:40 pm

      You are all wrong.
      Islam teaches to believe in Pluralism and encourage Religious Tolerance. It is stated in the Holy Qu’ran. You are talking about this post saying that Islam is Hip-Hop’s religion, but Why should that matter? It is music. Pluralism is strength based on our differences. I think we should try to become more united than seperate each other using these titles such as Islam is Hip-Hop’s Religion.

      Pluralism is the key to solving the problems of ignorance between the Western World and the Developing Countries.

      Thanks.

    142. moneysworthless December 9th, 2007 at 10:10 pm

      I gradually fell out of listening to music, mostly because there are better things to do with my time, but I will say that in regards to socially conscious rap, when I have shown it to non-Muslims, it has helped them to become more interested in Islam. Their like for hip hop stems on over to Islam, and they ask more questions about it. However, I will caution that one makes it clear that many of these rappers’ lyrics and videos do not represent Islam. I do not seek to judge those individuals, but I also want to avoid promoting any wrongdoing.

    143. Addy December 10th, 2007 at 1:05 am

      Salam,
      So what if those rappers/ singers are muslim or not? Whats that going to do 4 the Ummah, definitely not help it. IF they are muslim, does it make it O.K to listen to their fornicating, binge drinking, potty-mouthing life-style? No, duh. Are we trying to sympathize with them or what. I totally disagree with Muslimah, we must make ourselves weary of these kind of muslims, they are more dangerous and in a position to easily tarnish Islam. We must also stay well away from them and not even give them the attention which they capitalize on, hypocrisy personified are these so called “muslims”. Oxymoron! That they call themselves muslims, when muslim means the one who has SUBMITTED to Islam. Im p-d off, cant believe all these ill-ppl are muslims, May Allah guide them and us, and may Allah forgive us.

      i think everyone has thier own important opinions about this issue but i dont think anyone knows who is a true muslim because only god can judge if we are and thier are muslims all around us its not wrong that they rap but some of the things that they tend to say in thier songs are a bit wrong and anyway im not saying im a perfect muslim but im not a totally bad one either and a few people that have left a comment on this page atleast think aout what you are writting because really you have no idea what your point is however a few people have left very intressting comments and i agree with them to .
      At the end of the day nobody has a right to judge anyone because Allah is the only person that is allowed to do that . So please just stick to your faith and ask yourself if you are a true muslim from the heart !

      thanx bye :)

    150. Dave December 19th, 2007 at 6:12 pm

      Some of those rappers you’d hope aren’t Muslim because they’re consistently Haram. : )

    151. Slave December 22nd, 2007 at 10:44 pm

      salaam alakum ( may peace be upon you)

      First of all, as previously stated by one of my brother/sister that music in Islam is forbidden. Allah knows the best, allah knows whether these people we debating on are muslim or not. it is not for us to judge. Secondly they may praise islam in a very good manner but this doesnt mean that they are muslim. Thirdly, if you look at it now, what is this music teaching us. What is it teaching our kids/brother/sister. Thirdly, these rappers will say anything in their songs to make them flow or rhyme. They would curse their family or other people for their songs to flow. Fourtly, Music is a shatanic deed which us muslim shouldnt listen to, it is true that it has side affects which may mislead us.

      Moreover, if these rappers are muslim they shouldnt say that they are muslim but they dont go to mosque or pray. This doesnt teach us anything but make us worse. Who cares if they are muslim or not at the end day its their life and for their deeds, they will get jugde on judgement day. I would advice anyone to go do some research on “Freemasonary” it will really help you with the current issue that muslim are facing and what these anti islamic countries are trying to achieve.

      Jay z is a freemason. Did you know.

    152. omar January 2nd, 2008 at 4:05 pm

      see what Hunny says….. “nobody has a right to judge anyone because Allah is the only person that is allowed to do that” * first of all ALLAH(swt) is not a person…Next Muslims do have the right to judge but the average muslim should keep his or her mouth closed most of the time and let me give you and example… Muslims should not backbite people and talk behind their backs with slander and stuff but IF and I say IF a person ask you is so and so a good person to marry YOU can in this case say yes or no and offer your reason.. You should not tell a sister or advise a sister to marry a man that you KNOW is abusive…In this case you should be honest and tell her this man is known to be an abusive person so be patient until Allah(swt) send you something better. Don’t say ..I can’t judge him and then let the sister marry and get the crap beat out of her when you know his personality and history akhi..we muslims have to use out heads. Also muslims are judges and muslim leaders like Omar and ALi would judge when needed. Ex Gay people were killed during the time of Ali so don’t think that judgement wasn’t passed on them for this grave sin….also the main point is this CERTAIN muslims have the right to make judgements on people like Scholars after certain criteria have been met or the Imam or khalifa or muslim judge…it’s not for the average guy to go around saying who is good and who is a bad muslim….in short you can judge but keep it to yourself unless it becomes necessary for you to inform others…. i hope that is clear. LAst point and one that i have made in the past….If a person does not do the prayer or zakat or fast or the other things that are REQUIRED of muslims or if they have a belief that is not a belief of muslims then they are NOT muslims…EX if i pray and fast and made hajj and pay zakat and i say i beleive in ALlah(swt) and that the prophet is the last messenger BUT BUT i don’t believe in the in the angles then I would not be a muslim….WHy you ask, because Prophet muhammad has informed us that we HAVE to believe in the messengers the books the angles etc etc so for us to DISBELIEVE in something he told us to believe in will make us a kafir like it or not. Also there is no excuse for MAJOR shirk like worshipping those in the grave or anyone other than Allah(swt)… so to do this makes you a non muslim…also to say that so and so is or possibly is a prophet AFTER Muhammad makes you a KAfIR and this is what hurts the NATION the 5%ers the sufi and the shia…because most shia believe their imams or Ali has special powers…the sufi actually believe a muslim can become Allah if they worship really good so we all need to really learn more about our deen it seems. So even if a person is nice and is liked by you…their belief can make them a kafir and we need to know who is muslim and kafir because muslim women can’t marry non muslim men and Muslim men should marry muslim women when they can but if they have to marry a person of that is not a muslim it should be a jew or christian not a hindu or seek or rasta or whatever. hope this helps….if you don’t learn you religion you will continue to water it down until it becomes like what the christans have authubilah!

    153. omar January 2nd, 2008 at 4:27 pm

      do you guys know the story of the hypocrit…A man died in madinah and our Prophet Muhammad was going to pray the janazah prayer over him and ask allah(swt) forgivness for this man…OMAR the second califa Stood up and pulled the sleeve of our prophet asking O messenger of Allah will you pray over this man? this man was a hypocrit and the prophet continued to pray over this man and ask forgivness for him. Later on ALLAH(SWT) revealed to prophet muhammad that he SHOULD NOT ask forgivness for him because infact this man WAS a hypocrit as OMAR had pointed out. NOW what you need to understand is that OMAR openly asked the prophet NOT to pray over this man MEANING this man was not worthy of a MUSLIM burial meaning he was not a MUSLIM he was a KAFIR….SO Omar(ra) made a judgement about the character of this man And ALLAH(swt) backed and supported this…ALlah(swt) did not say Ya Omar who gave you the right to judge….he told our Prophet he would not for give this man even if he the prophet asked forgivness for him 70x and our prophet said he would ask 71 times. ALlah(swt) said he would NOT forgive this man so you know that this man is going to hell based on the info.. so here is your proof that SOME muslims CAN judge so if you still disagree bring you prook from quraan and sunnah or seerah…..i just stated my proof from islamic history…ask your imam if you don’t know this story and this mans name was abdullah ibn sallon or something like that. if his name can be servant of Allah and he is a kafir then what does that tell all you very liberal muslims who say don’t judge, my islam is in my heart and than you quote that hadith about where the man said his shahadda on the battelfield and was killed by usama right?
      yeah i know.

    154. omar January 2nd, 2008 at 4:41 pm

      sorry gave you guys the wrong name
      his correct name is Abdullah ubayy and this is just one of the things he did to our prophet to deserve being considered a hypocrit.
      In the Battle of Uhad, the Prophet had initially 1,000 combatants: 300 of them belonged to Abdullah bin Ubayy. As the cry for morning prayer was raised, and the whole Muslim army knelt in prayer, Abdullah bin Ubayy collected his 300 men and marched back to Medina, leaving the Prophet to face the enemy with his 700 followers. **** this man SAID he was a MUSLIM but his ACTIONS said otherwise and yes ALLAH(swt) knows best!

      Ibn Abass said that or defined emaan as heart tounge and limbs…. correct and complete belief with your heart, the speech of the muslim with his tounge and doing the good with your limbs….Point is ANy tom dick and harry can say i am muslim but do they act as muslims SHOULD act… pray fast zakat have the correct belief get my point?

      PROOF THAT MUSIC IS WELL judge for yourself…proofs from quraan and sunnah

      (The Prohibition)

      The Noble Qur’an – Luqman 31:6

      And of mankind is he who purchases idle talks (i.e. music, singing, etc.) to mislead (men) from the Path of Allah without knowledge, and takes it (the Path of Allah, the Verses of the Qur’an) by way of mockery. For such there will be a humiliating torment (in the Hell-Fire).

      Ibn Masood (ra) said about this verse “I swear by the One other than Whom there is no God that it refers to singing [ghinaa].”, and he repeated this three times. Ibn Abbaas (ra) said it refered to ‘singing and the like’ while Jaabir (ra) is reported to view its meaning to signify singing and listening to songs. Many taabi’oon such as Mujaahid, Ikrimah, Mak-hool and Umar ibn Shu’ayb viewed it as a censure of music and song.

      Hadith – Bukhari (#787) [Also related by Tabari]

      Sa’id ibn Jbayr reported that Ibn ‘Abbas said about the verse: “And of mankind is he who purchases idle talks” (31:6), that, “ldle talks means singing and the like.”

      The Noble Qur’an – Al-Isra 17:64

      “And Istafiz [literally means: befool them gradually] those whom you can among them with your voice (i.e. songs, music, and other call for Allah’s disobedience)…”

      Hip hop truly is an islamic music, ive heard comments like “instruments is haram” and “%5 dis %5dat” but really who r u to be judgin man, onli Allah* can do dat.

      besides Allah created Hip Hop with no haram, musical instruments are haram when played in the light of the Qu’ran, but hip-hop is vocals spat over electronic beats.

      i agree some rappers aint promotin Islam enough, we need to show da hood wats really good. Islam is the way, and if muslims was enslavin africans and doin all the stuff you haters claim, WHY YOU NEVER HEAR ABOUT IT UNLESS ITS ONE OF U HATIN INTERNET WARRIORS.

      Some muslim rappers need more faith but i dont kno wat ones. Besides whos dis waiste pussy FREDD y u preachin ur jewish and cristian religion here, we dont worship men dead or alive, only ALLAH*, the way i see it, if ur god wanted equality with evry1 why’s he gona give a human (jesus/isa) god like powers wat no1 else has, answer dat.

      Im half afghan but im white skin, im a convert and my pops or marj aint muslim, who can really say Islam aint multi cultural WE TAKIN OVER. im from da slums in London, and dis city is run by muslims, all the confused crime bosses, grime artists and rappers follow islam coz its the way out the hood, puts you trak.

      Alaikum Salaam brothers
      DONT HATE THE TRUTH

      FIRST OF ALL MUSIC IS HARAM (FORBIDDEN) IN ISLAM. For the rappers who are muslim then they are faasiqun (evil and wrong doers). They need to repent and leave off this tabarruj (corruption) of imitating the disbelievers in their actions and speech. Islam stands for purity and morals and The Qur’an is the speech of Allah so verily this evil music is the speech of the shaytan. What or How does these so called muslims in the shaytanic entertainment industry portray real true muslims these people are bad for the dawah (the call to islam) Freeway i know him personally and he knows better because he went to umrah in mecca at the kaabah and he visited some of the major scholars and he came back and was wearing thobes and kuffis and being with the muslims and then as time went on he fell right back into disobedience, remember your return is to Allah. These muslim rappers and listeners know more rap lyrics then Qur’an verses. Allah says in the Qur’an in surah luqman beware of those who take their religion to be nothing more than mere play and amusement. And it was Allah who guided Suhaib Webb to the deen not Hip Hop, Allah could have left him dead with a black and hard heart but he showed him mercy just like he did me remember the verse when Allah says Whomever He guides no one can misguide and whomever He misguides no one can guide.

      seems to me like no matter what proof you use people do what they dang well want too. I gave you the statements from the holy Quraan and the sahabba and yall still sleeping and following your desires. Oh well my job is done cause i told you the information on post #156. I also showed where Omar ibn alkhatab the 2nd khalifa placed judgement on a guy the prophet was going to do a janaza prayer for. Allah(swt) agreed with Omar but still you continue to REJECT the proof….HIP HOP aint nothing but a bunch of misleading talk and a tool of SATAN…when you people get more serious about the deen and take some classes you MIGHT change your mind about this. Anyway…as long as yall are trying to do what Allah ask then yall cool with me but if you ain’t doing the 5 required and down with the 6 pillars of eman then in my mind you ain’t a muslim no matter what you call yourself. But overall Allah(swt) will have the final say on all of this but i am telling you that 5 and 6 is key so don’t sleep on it… atleast get the belief part straight and then work on the 5….I ain’t perfect but i do love Muslims period and point blank!

      The only people from the list is probably swiss beatz and styles p. them being muslims is just heresay, but the rest are pretty public. many of them accept Islam as the true religion, but they may not practice it. i’ll leave it up to Allah to decide that.

      I just saw a picture in the June 2007 issue of XXL that had an article on Swizz Beatz. He has a gold chain prominently displayed with the Arabic character for Allah. So I think that’s pretty self explanatory…but Allah azza wajel knows best.

      the belief of those who claim to be 5%ers is not the same belief of Prophet Muhammad(pbuh)>> Please google 5%ers and see what the belief they have is B4 you say they are Muslims. Guys it’s only one kind of muslim; those that submit to Allah(swt) and worship him alone without assoc partners with him. AND you have to believe that Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) is the *LAST* and final prophet sent by Allah. We can’t say elijah was a prophet after Muhammad or that Farad Muhammad was Allah in the form of a man or that Black people are Gods, this is not what Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) was teaching Abu bakr,Omar, uthman and Ali…. So as much as we would like to have the 5%ers and the Nation of islam included, we simply can’t until they understand and accept islam as it was taught by Prophet Muhammad. I hope this is clear…. Also islam has certain things that you have to believe and also things you have to do as well. EX you have to pray, fast, pay Zakat, try to make hajj and testify that Allah(swt) is the only creator and true God and that Muhammad is the last and Final messenger and prophet sent by Allah(swt)..if you reject this then i am sorry to tell you but you are not a muslim and i don’t care if your name is Abdullah or even Muhammad. Now proof from islamic history. Abu bakr the 2nd khalifa fought against other so called muslims and took their property and wives captives because these men refused to pay ZAKAT a pillar of ISLAM..The women refused to leave their husbands so they were taken captive just like any other non muslim. When you abandon a pillar of Islam like Zakat or prayer your Islam becomes NULL and VOID or INVALID making you an Unbeliever or KAFIR…. NEXT you have 6 things you HAVE to believe in 1 Allah 2 the Angles 3 All the prophets from adam to Muhammad 4 all the devine books sent by Allah 5 day of judgement and 6 Destiny You have to know these and believe in all 6 or your belief is JACKED up and may Allah have mercy on you if this is the case. The 5 pillars are key but if you havent made hajj or can’t due to money then that is ok or if you are sick and can’t fast all of this stuff can be delt with or even if you miss a prayer here and there you can still be considered a muslim by most scholars but not all BUT you have to get the belief part correct. As far as judging others goes…mostly this is for scholars and stuff but YOU have to know who is a muslim otherwise you might let a NON muslim marry your sister or mother or daughter and our women can’t marry non muslim men…so YOU have to be able to tell based on the 5pillars and the 6 pillars of emaan who is a muslim and who is a false muslim or muslim by name only. thats my word yall now PEACE out and salaams to all MUSLIMS.

      I believe in god. i think that religion is manmade. but if i had to go to a religion i would go to being a muslim. but as of now i follow my heart and i believe that if my good deeds outweigh my bad deeds, i will go to heaven.

      i think that religion is jus a way of life.
      sum people model their life after jesus
      sum after muhammed
      sum after buddah
      sum after the saints

      but they all believe in god
      even buddist
      i may not be right but do they believe in a god that created everything?
      people are alwayz fighting over religion but for what?

      more war have been started over religion than over anything else in history

      and isnt a sin to take life?
      isnt that a duty reserved for god/allah?

      people say they are ready to die for islam and christianity

      but not me

      im ready to die for GOD

      i dont think it mattter the posture ur in when u pray
      as long as u pray

      ya know?

      a sin is the same in a religions
      and so is hell

      so why do men munipulate god into what they want?

      this is jus my opinion

      and if anyone wants to futher discuss this subject with me intellectually

    174. MOHAMMAD SADAQAT January 28th, 2008 at 7:25 am

      Well, If you believe in God, then you are one step ahead in the right direction.

      Ask God what he wants you to believe, you’ll get the same message in the all the religious scripts, Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikkhism, and that is faith in one god.

      This message was clearly delivered in the (unchanged)Qur’an, when the council of nesia were messin up the Ingeel, and demeaningly called it the bible (meaning book), and the pagans were cleary diluting the continuous call of God with their rituals and idols (they still have like a few thousand to choose from), the message was never lost…

      The Qur’an, the bible, the Vedas (Hindu scripture), The Guru Granth Sahib, and the torah contain the same message, surprisingly only the moslems still seem to be following that path and also, by following the call of submission to the will of God by practising Islam and staying within the framework of the Shariah.

      Having said that I would like to call up everyone, muslims and non-muslims alike, to take a closer look at Islam before starting to strongly believe in something that may be just an incomplete and therefore wrong reflection of Islam.

      May the peace and blessings of almigty allah be with you all.

      FOR ALL THE USERS WHO THINK MUSLIMS CAN’T JUDGE…SEE WHAT ALLAH(SWT) has said in surah AL maidah 41-42 so now if you disagree then you disagree with the words of Allah

      ‘O Messenger! Let not those grieve you who run towards infidelity, {some of those who say with their MOUTHS, we have accepted faith. And their hearts are not Muslims,} and some of the Jews who listen falsehood very well and listen very well to other people who have not come to you. They change the words of Allah from their places, and say, If you get this command, then accept it, and if you get not this, then be on your guard.’ And to whom Allah pleases to misguide. Then you shall never be able to avail him anything against Allah. ‘These are they whose hearts Allah intended not to purify To them there is disgrace in the world, and to them there is great torment in the Hereafter.

      They are habitual listeners of lies, great devourers of the things forbidden. {So if they come to you, then judge* between them or turn your face from them, and if you will turn your face from them, they shall not harm you at all. And if you judge* between them then judge* with justice. Undoubtedly, Allah likes the just.

      Lets try to use proof from quraan and sunnah going forward

    180. Saqib March 2nd, 2008 at 10:20 am

      if you want a good role model that was 1 of the best rappers alive and has left the rap game 4 Islam then it is napoleon form 2pac outlawz.

    181. umeezee March 18th, 2008 at 3:01 pm

      look its plain and simple, people like music muslims included. HOWEVER the quraan tells us we should try to stay away from listening to music because it is a waste of time. This is what the quraan and tafsir say about this subject. If you read the post here the ayat has been mentioned several times by umar ali but people don’t really care about that. People will do what they like until THEY decide to change….so if these people want to listen to tupac or any other rap artist then let them do it. Just dislike it in your heart and advise them in the BEST way when possible. Don’t get all upset about them because bottom line is we should try to save ourselves and family from the hellfire first. I got my MOM and DAD and many other family members to attempt to save so if these guys and gals want to listen to music or rap then they can take that up with ALLAH(swt). They know and they have decided that they want to listen so we have 3 choices. Stop the act with your hands, speak against it or hate it in your heart. We did a good thing by speaking out but now we must take care of our selves and family. Lets start at home first and then we can worry about others. Let us be the example. I will tell you this, i once was like man music aint so bad, but after i quit listening to music is seems my mind is clearer and i can now hear other things and understand the world and whats going on better. I think music is being used is a cover to keep us sleepy or in a FOG like state. I say this, it’s not that i hate music or anything but now i understand the benifit of using my time to do better things like worship ALLAH(ta) or try to do good deeds.

      May Allah help and guide us all to see what is right as right and what is wrong as wrong ameen

      were not 4a p.e.,bdp,bambaataa,rakim,nas or common,i’d still be unaware of my heritage
      as a blackman,let alone islam…islam & hip hop is one and tha same,neither being a form
      2b marginalized,each a culture of how we conduct ourselves evry day,therefore is not a
      religion nor a mere musical expression,that kind of thinkin is limited 2 anothas narrow
      interpretation,allah & hip hop,both speaks 2me directly,calls me 2 him or it differently than urself,yet we both arrive at tha same destination,g.o.d.,gaining ones definition,i hope yall can gain some clarity,definition & direction,sallams,peace & one

      LISTEN PEOPLE THE ONLY RELIGION ACCEPTED BY ALLAH(GOD)IS ISLAM AND THAT IS THE ONLY RELIGION YOU GET JUDGED BY. SO BE A GOOD MUSLIM INSHALLAH AND IF UR NOT A MUSLIM ITS UR CHANCE ON THIS EARTH TO CONVERT. ISLAM IS THE TRUTH PEACE AND RIGHTEOUS…ITS SAYS IN THE QURAN SURAH ALI IMRAN 3 VERSE 52 THAT JESUS (ISA) (PBUH) WAS A MUSLIM…AND IN SURAH ALI IMRAN CHAPTER 3 VERSE 19-THE RELIGEON BEFORE ALLAH SWT (GOD) IS ISLAM..AND IN SURAH ALI IMRAN CHAPTER 3 VERSE 85 IF ANYONE DESIRES A RELIGEON OTHER THAN ISLAM IT WILL NEVER BE ACCEPTED OF HIM AND IN THE HEREAFTER HE WILL BE IN THE RANKS OF THOSE WHO HAVE LOST SPIRITUAL GOOD…THUS ISLAM IS THE FIRST AND HENCE THE LAST RELIGION IT IS THE ONLY TRUE RELIGION. ALL THE OTHER RELIGIONS CAME LATER…SO IF I WAS U I WOULD SAVE MYSELF FROM SATAN AND THE HELLFIRE…AND WORSHIP ONE AND ONLY TRUE ALLAH SWT(GOD) AS HE IS THE ALL KNOWING ALL WISE..SALAAM..INSHALLAH MAY ALLAH GUIDE US ALL..AMEEN. 5% AND NATION OF ISLAM IS NOT RIGHT AND IT WILL NEVER BE…ISLAM-SUNNI IS THE RIGHTEOUS…ALLAH JUDGES THOSE WHO DO THE 5 PILLARS OF ISLAM.. SO INSHALLAH MAY ALLAH SWT GUIDE THE NON-MUSLIMS.(INCLUDING 5% AND NATION OF ISLAM) AMEEN..SALAAMALAKUUM..

      Okay I understand that Islam is the truth.
      People have to get to places in their lives at different times.
      We weren’t all were we are now, all the time.

      Give people good examples of good Muslims and let them see you living right.
      Because yes, it’s bad to be Kafir but it’s, how is it to talk about Kafirs when you are one.

      So for now I’ll do my best, keeping Hadith in my thoughts and Qu’ran in my heart.
      I can’t say who is right or wrong because I know Allah (swt) is not always happy with my actions.

      Insha Allah Live Well…….

      Lupe Fiasco is a good muslim. I dont know if he practices but his faith is strong.

      His songs reflects him as a person and they are very much about issues in the community and about him being muslim so on the basis of that i think that he is a very good man and a good muslim too.
      He says himself that he keeps away from clubbing, drinking and stuff.

    196. umeezee July 8th, 2008 at 2:42 pm

      from what i see and have read here, most of the people ignore the facts on what it takes/means to be a muslim..and perhaps they don’t know. Any person who is popular and says Allah this or Islam that we RUSH to claim them as muslims. We have pretty much ignored the 6 pillars of eman and the 5 pillars of faith as if they are not important. I tried to give examples from quraan and sunnah but people don’t seem to care. I think people should spend less time with this rap music and go learn the deen. What is the point of practicing islam if I make haram things halal or halal things haram? Does anyone know what it means to raise your voices above the voice of prophet muhammad? Perhaps we might want to learn this before we continue to IGNORE the facts and proofs from the book of Allah(swt) and the sunnah of the prophet(pbuh)

      I will not bother to buy the music but especially from people who speak highly on what Allah(swt) and his prophet dislike. I will not support people with my money who talk about sleeping around and selling drugs and outher illegal acts all while cclaiming to be muslims. I will also be careful of those people who try to convince me that people who do these things are muslims and that i should not judge them in the wrongful actions they do that mislead and harm my brothers and sisters in al islam.

      Muslims are supposed to be the BEST of mankind..they enjoin the wrong and frobid the evil. How can you do that if you can’t or won’t even judge/decide who is doing the wrong or if they are doing something wrong according to islam. EX we have a guy at our masjid and he has a drug problem….we understand that, we don’t say he is a kafir because of the drugs but this same person broke into the masjid and stole the money of the muslims collected after jummah (friday prayer)…this same guy was caught on our video cam doing this act a second time but he told us”we just want to blame him” we were like AKHI, is this you on this still photo and video with the hammer in your hand? he was silent because he knew he was BUSTED…Now every friday he stands in our parking lot with his kufi on saying Allahu akbar and collecting petty cash handouts from people who come once a week and don’t know his history. This brother is NOT praying anymore and Allah knows best if he repented to Allah(swt) We don’t want to call him any bad names but clearly what he did was wrong and hurt ful….We could have been like ahh the guy is this and that and we should do this and that to him but we didn’t do that….We tried to get him help but he refused our help….This man although the act is clear in that he has stopped praying I ask you you this……Would you let him marry your daughter just because he has a muslim name and made hajj? Are you passing your judgement on him or are you saying I don’t know whats in his heart and willing to let him marry your daughter or sister? If you are saying heck no, he will never marry my sister you have passed your judgement based oninfo you have about his actions and chracter.
      Muslims have to be able to judge because we are the only ones who have the book of Allah(swt) and the sunnah of the prophet.

      These rappers, perhaps they pray and fast and the other things needed to be called a muslim and perhaps they are muslims in name ONLY but not YET believers!

      This is one of the most misguided things I have ever read.

      Hip-hop culture glorifies the ghetto, romanticizes crime, and objectifies women. It embodies the antithesis of Islamic values. The only connection many of these people have to Islam is that as their personal religion, they call the Creator ‘Allah’ instead of ‘God’. That’s it.

      It’s popularity indicates how popular a tool it is of Western media and culture for propagating their values. Values, which I might add, are sub-human, and often even below animals.

      Would you want your children to be influenced by what they hear in rap music? Didn’t think so.

      If I found posts from teenage kids of my own reflecting these sentiments, I’d consider myself a failed father.

      to Gill : Have you ever listened to “It Takes A Nation OF Millions To Hold Us Back” by Public Enemy or any other Public Enemy album? Please listen to it or look up the lyrics, absorb the knowledge and think about the statement you just made. And please for the love of God dont count soulja boy or many of his unoriginal clones as ‘Hip-Hop’.

      to Umzee : Life is a multitude of gray options that are constantly appearing every single day and each person in this life confronts them in different ways…and for the muslim yes you are correct they must confront these in a manner that Allah (SWT) has ordained…however you have failed to take into account the fact that we are all human. We are all corruptible, all prone to selfishness and other vices, all capable of evil, all capable of good, and all prone to good deeds and sins and so as a result of this there is not a single human being on this earth with the exception of a new born baby that is innocent, so in terms of judgement by muslims it is Allah SWT and Allah SWT alone that can judge as He truly is the Almighty and without sin…and we all are just human beings. This is not to excuse myself as i am not the best example of a muslim (and indeed i think no can be as much as the Prophet (PBUH) was) but I try my best…and that is all i can do.

      peace

      to Genii aka Ahmed
      I know and understand that muslims do not want to be judged by other muslims but to say that we can’t judge is not correct according to islam so let me give you 3 examples akhi

      1 when a husband and wife have a dispute…the quraan instructs you to call in people from her family and people from your side and let them be the JUDGE of the dispute
      2 when a scholar is told about a scholar/muslim who is misleading people away from the deen of Allah with bidah or falsehood… islam says a Scholar IE person of knowledge should sit with that person to discuss the issue and to correct the mistakes or errors of that person..if the person refuses to change his teachings of falsehood or BIDAH he can be called/judged a disbeliever by that scholar so the muslims will not be harmed by those teachings any longer…see rules of making takfir… EX if i reject just one of the prophets after the evedence has been made CLEAR to me can you still call me a muslim?.. If i say fajr has 3 rakats and not 2 because 3 would be better can i do this? No! somethings you can’t change in Islam and doing so might take one outside the fold of islam…so the scholars are here to PROTECT the people from falsehood and fitnah like this.
      3 if a man comes to you and ask to marry your sister or daughter or mother and he tells you he thinks that so and so possibly could be a Prophet AFTER Muhammad(pbuh) you have to judge him as a NON muslim if he hold on to this belief after being told BECAUSE you can’t let a NON muslim man marry a muslim woman because the quraan says so….So you have to be able to Judge between truth and falsehood and this is not the same as walking around calling everyone kafir I hope that is Clear. We muslims have the book of the quraan and the sunnah and they contain the truth and we are here to see the falsehood and point it out as a protection to other muslims..

      So i say all that to say this…. Omar (ra) judged and we have times when we are told to do the same so saying that we CAN’T is wrong and misleading. We need to have manners when doing anything but we CAN judge and the support for that is in the quraan and sunnah.

      As for the brother…what type muslim who understands this deen would support GAYS and work to see that they have rights? Prophet LUT(pbuh) and his story tell us that these people are cursed for the action of GAY sex so we CAN’t support this period.

      People are people and we ALL make mistakes but when the truth come to us we have to accept it because rejecting the quraan and sunnah based on feelings will lead us all astray…and may Allah protect us from that ameen!

      thanks and salaamu alaikum Muslims

      The RAnd CORP wants to change the face of ISLAM along with the US and it’s armed forces….they want to know what type muslim you are….If you fall in line with what they consider a “good” or moderate muslim…go on and change your name from Muhammad to MO..

      below are some questions from the survey they have…..enjoy!

      –Does the group (or individual) support or condone violence? If it does not support or condone violence now, has it supported or condoned it in the past?
      – Does it support democracy? And if so, does it define democracy broadly in terms of individual rights?
      – Does it support internationally recognized human rights?
      – Does it make any exceptions (e.g., regarding freedom of religion)?
      – Does it believe that changing religions is an individual right?
      – Does it believe the state should enforce the criminal-law component of shari’a?
      – Does it believe the state should enforce the civil-law component of shari’a? Or does it believe there should be non-shari’a options for those who prefer civil-law matters to be adjudicated under a secular legal system?
      – Does it believe that members of religious minorities should be entitled to the same rights as Muslims?
      – Does it believe that a member of a religious minority could hold high political office in a Muslim majority country?
      – Does it believe that members of religious minorities are entitled to build and run institutions of their faith (churches and synagogues) in Muslim majority countries?
      – Does it accept a legal system based on nonsectarian legal principles?

      DELIVER A MESSIAH MISTAKEN IDENTITY

      Subtitle: LIBERATION DAY

      By: Author Agron Belica

      As an avid reader of the Holy Bible, how many countless times have you
      drawn your own interpretations, and conclusions? How many versions
      of the Bible have you read, comparing ancient manuscripts to modern
      day Scripture? As an open minded reader in faith, and Christianity, has
      your bias lead you directly to extensive research on the words, and
      works of Christ? Is is possible that Jesus did not die on the cross?
      Is the accepted view of the life of Christ incomplete? Are we thirsty
      for the mysterious, thus craving for more information on what we
      doubt, or believe is missing? Are we comfortable, and completely
      satisfied in what we’ve learned in a lifetime about the son of Mary,
      and the crucifixion? These are only a few questions that the curious
      reader is left to ponder, after reading the cleverly written book,
      “DELIVER A MESSIAH MISTAKEN IDENTITY.” As an educated scholar
      on Christian history, Agron Belica fills the pages with contradictions
      and controversy on the life of Mary,Jesus, and the crucifixion. The
      author presents persuasive arguments on theory which surrounds
      the events, and circumstances which took place during that era,
      obtained from years of elaborate examination. The reader is left with
      yet another crucial question, has prevailing powers camouflaged
      the truth? The author’s comparisons are undeniable plausible, while
      he sites religious documents to support his arguments, leaving the
      reader amazingly surprised. I would recommend this book to all reader’s
      who wish to explore facts, and seek additional knowledge obtained
      through research about faith, and Christianity. In comparison to the
      book “Holy Blood, Holy Grail” Agron Belica enlightens his open minded
      readers to other possibilities as they absorb each bit of information
      with a grain of salt. The author does not shoot the facts into the reader’s
      face. Instead, he gently challenges the senses while using theory as the
      key to open the door to other possibilities as we draw our own opinions,
      and conclusions. “DELIVER A MESSIAH MISTAKEN IDENTITY” is
      precise, and interesting. Regardless of which road the reader takes
      on the teachings of the life of Christ, Agron Belica provides us with the
      ultimate message that remains the same, eternal Blessings in the light
      of Christ. Combined with that message and the author’s presentation
      of research, if just one reader is left with any doubts, then the author’s
      mission has been accomplished. This novel is an impressive, passionate
      read, and is as Powerfully Moving as “THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST”
      with Mel Gibson!

      I came to Islam through Allah’s guidance of course, but yes hip-hop MUSIC definitely is a large part of that journey. I say that having grown up in this kaafir society, even being sympathetic towards Islam is commendable. You cannot expect someone to instantly, or even after years of working towards it to be a good example of a Muslim unless this has been decreed for them. Just stay humble and PLEASE do not judge. Especially without knowing what these people have experienced in their lives. I know that I STILL am struggling to leave behind bad habits that were acquired early on in childhood. Maybe in a more positive society I’d have been righteous man! But having grown up in Babylon the great all I can do is continue to work towards it. All praises due to ALLAH (SWT) for taubah!!!

    204. umeezee August 21st, 2008 at 10:57 am

      people always me about the issue of judging and say PLEASE don’t judge others. You guys,,, I am not saying you should walk around calling people names or saying he is good and she is a bad muslim. The issue is not about calling people names..the issue is we have to know the diff because this is a part of a ISLAM…

      and i willl use the example one last time. You can’t marry your muslim daughter to a non muslim man…The quraan and the sunnah both make this point very clear… SO if a man come to marry your daughter you have to make sure he is infact a muslim. He may be a weak muslim but you have to make sure he is in FACT a muslim. In order to be a muslim you have to PRAY 5x a day, Fast the month of Ramadan which will be on sept 1, 2008 or on the 2nd of september. Pay zakat 2.5% of you yearly savings, Attempt to make hajj once in your lifetime And Testify that none deserve to be worshipped but Allah(swt) and that Muhammad(pbuh) is THE last prophet and messenger. these are the very basics one has to have….Then you need to know the 6 pillars of eman or belief. belief in the angles the books the last day etc etc etc and know that belief is HEART TOUNGE and LIMBS…. SO if a man comes to you and says he is a muslim but he does not pay zakat because he thinks it not necessary then that man can’t be considered a muslim even if his name is Muhammad and he is from SAUDI OR is a guy comes to you and says he is muslim BUT elijah Muhammad was a messenger or prophet after Prophet Muhammad…this man is not a muslim because he has rejected one of the principal beliefs of islam… Or if a man says that premarital sex is ok in this day and time and ISLAMIC law is out dated or barbaric….So I am just saying that you need to know your stuff so that you one protect this deen of Islam as well as yourself and FAMILY…. So i hope that is clear….we don’t go around calling each other NAMES but we do need to know what it takes to actually be INSIDE the fold of islam…. And saying Allah once or twice in a song will not make a person a muslim even if they claim islam in an interview. belief in the heart, say it with the tounge and do the actions of ISLAM with your limbs….prayer.. Fasting…hajj etc etc

      peace muslims

    205. RAMEEZ August 22nd, 2008 at 6:07 am

      Who r we to say they r Muslim or not ???? to me they all r muslim just need to revert to Islam not CONVERT.

    206. umeezee August 22nd, 2008 at 10:41 am

      well RAMZEE if you had a clue what it means to be a muslim then you would not be asking that question. You don’t know about the 5 pillars? You never heard of the 6 pillars of emaan? Do you attend a masjid or read books on Islam from time to time? Every muslim knows that 5 daily prayers are REQUIRED to be a muslim. If you skip them or only do 3 of the 5 for example that is NOT what Allah(swt) has told you to do. You can’t make up your own rules and call it islam.
      Abu Bakr as sadiq the first califa(leader) after the death of the prophet Muhammad(pbuh) FOUGHT with other so called muslims AFTER they REFUSED to pay ZAKAT….. Hundreds of sahabba decided to follow the false prophet MUSALIMA after prophet Muhammad died..these people who were once with the prophet were fought and killed as NON muslims so clearly sometimes people do things that take them outside the fold of islam.

      so people need to have certain beliefs to be consider muslims
      the 6 pillars of EMAAN (belief)
      1 belief in Allah(swt) with all his attributes
      2 belief in all the prophets with Muhammad being the LAST prophet
      3 belief in all the holy books send by Allah quraan , torah and Injeel. Gosple of jesus
      4 belief in angles
      5 belief in the qadar of Allah (pre destination)
      6 belief in day of judgement

      five pillars of faith
      testify that none deserves to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is the LAST prophet and messenger.
      5 daily prayers
      fast the month of Ramadan
      Make hajj if able
      Pay zakat from your yearly savings

      people can be muslims of weak faith or they may even commit major sins and still be muslims BUT it is a must that they have the understanding and belief of the faith.

      If the rappers want to be muslims, they need to pray and fast this Ramadan which will be on sept 1 or 2 of 2008….when they say they are muslims and have knowledge and belief in the heart and do the actions of Muslims with the limbs they they will be muslims like it or not….. If they are not muslims they are KAFIRS and none of us should admire kafirs or put our trust in them.

      Way to many hater muslims on here. Who the fuck are you to judge anybody because you think you are the perfect muslim! What real works have you really done for your community. Who have you saved?

    210. umeezeeh September 22nd, 2008 at 2:56 pm

      Remo Kareem,,,this is RAMADAN in case you did not know that….Why are you talking this way? It speakes volumes about what type muslim you are! You don’t have a problem with me, you sir have a problem with the truth of ISLAM…you need to work on that brother!

      bring you proofs if you are truthful…otherwise you are just saying WORDS out of anger….and i am being nice but don’t push it.

    211. Kassem September 29th, 2008 at 5:32 pm

      I Dont know if you ever heard about 50Cent song Ghetto Quran, but its strang that he had done a song on a islamic thing

    212. Ali Qazi October 7th, 2008 at 1:55 pm

      put lipstick on a pig, its still a pig

      anybody can talk about islam, not everyone can represent it

    213. Remo Kareem October 7th, 2008 at 8:45 pm

      umeezeeh I stand behind what I said who are you to judge any of these people. Name your works. What have you done for the people?

    214. Remo Kareem October 7th, 2008 at 8:54 pm

      Also Umeezeeh I’m a Muslim, I’m a Christian, I’m a Jew, I’m a Buddhist. I’m a part of all that is righteous. I’m whatever I want to be. I will no longer label myself or allow anyone else to label me. I’m a good hearted man that cares about people and life itself. I honestly don’t care what type of person you think I am. You can never judge me.

    215. shabab October 8th, 2008 at 10:07 am

      Remo kareem…. you said it yourself…you judged yourself and you make my point for me…you have this NAME KAREEM and most people would think you were muslim. You are on a muslim blog with a muslim name yet you are NOT a muslim. SO my point is that YOU can not marry a muslim woman because YOU ARE NOT A MUSLIM. If you were to marry a muslim woman look what find of false beliefs you would introduce her to. You are a christian, a Buddist and a MUSLIM LOL this is proof you have no dang clue what a muslim is just like most of the other people on here. Allah says in the Quraan that THE ONLY religion accepted by him will be ISLAM…complete submission to the will of GOD ALLAH(swt)…. what A JOKE YOU ARE…NOT EVEN WORTH THE TIME IT TOOK TO WRITE THIS but thanks for making my point MORE clear. LIKE i said you have no problem, your problem is with ALLAH(swt) and his prophet.

      You guys need to beware of people like REMO KAREEM FAKE WANNA BE MUSLIMS with wacked out belief aqeeda…. not a muslims at all,,,,, not even if he calls himself kareem and hangs out on muslim blogs.

      nothing is rare about you buddy…you have been judged and you will be judged…we have many good harted kufar in this world…Mother Teresa was a good harted person but what will she get for it? Good harted kafirs get the good they earn in THIS world AND muslims ask for and get the good of this world and the HEARAFTER so go chew on that!

    216. umeezee October 8th, 2008 at 10:21 am

      Remo kareem…with your fake muslim name i thought you were a muslim…Now you have just proved to be NOTHING more than a FAKE muslim. If no muslim was to judge you and see you for what you really are, you might actually get to marry one of our muslim sisters if her WALI (father brother uncle etc etc) didn’t ask you a few questions about your crazy hippy beliefs….You are what we call kufar
      my friend. you are the type person that tries to steer muslims off the correct path with your “don’t judge” and who are we to judge crap. If we don’t judge or know what makes a muslim people like you will sneek in and create great fitnah… If i was MR i would kick your kufar but off this blog to protect the muslims in here who don’t know about your type. I don’t have time for you but i have all day to protect this deen of islam….You don’t know the first thing about islam is belief in the one true GOD? How can you be a Muslim and a christian at the same time? ONly a sick mind like yours could even say such a dumb thing for everyone to read. if you understood Islam you would NEVER say something so stupid…you should be asking questions and keep your mouth shut because you have NOT A CLUE what ISLAM is…We don’t need your sufi aqeeda and crazy thinking so go read a book already. try an aqeedah book by bilal phillips for starters. MR needs to put some tauheed info on here for you i guess but that’s between you guys. I know he will not take a stance on the shia and sunni subject so you might be in the right place afterall.

      Man to hell with you. I don’t need your approval about anything including Islam. Get your self together chief don’t worry about me. I’m not trying to turn anybody against Islam. I love Islam and God in the way I choose. I use to practice Islam and I still love much about it. I’ve chosen not to be deeply involved in any form of religion at this point in life. It is what it is. If you don’t like it I could care less. I haven’t asked for your opinion and could care less about it. Worry about you and your family. Also I’m not using Remo Kareem for a Muslim name. Remo is my stage name and Kareem was the name given to me by my father. He liked the name. He didn’t give it to me for any religious reason. You know nothing about me. Worry about you and get a life. You can’t check me. I know where I stand in life. My goods far outweigh my bads. Can you say the same. Also I’m married to a beautiful Black Queen for going on 9 years. How about you. So one last time homey. Worry about yourself. I’m good. I know where I stand in life. I got love for all good people and will give my last to help someone in true need. Now save yourself some energy and go find someone who needs your help. I don’t need your help or advice. I’ve studied religions for years and practiced Islam in the past. I want no parts of organized religion at this point in my life. Whatever you don’t like about me or what I’ve said deal with it.

      Know you chew on it. I’m more than sure you’re not as Holy as you act. And again you can never judge me you self-righteous hypocrite. And by the way, I was on a Hip-Hop blog. If that’s a Muslim blog it sent me too thats cool. I love real Muslims. Their my brothers and sisters. But so are any of the righteous people of the planet Earth. And the titles are what separate you hypocrites now. I’m a Muslim, I’m a Jew, I’m a Christian. You’re not superior because you practice Islam. Let your works show your superiority. Who have you bought to Allah. Who have you saved or attempted to save from a life of troubles. You think you’re so wise and maybe even holier than thou. I can see it in your writings and accusations. Save your breath and time with me chief. I’ve practiced religion and even more important I’ve had life experiences. I’m willing to bet you’re some young know it all in his 20′s. I laugh at your arrogance. Live and learn my friend. Live and learn. Now run along and find a lost soul that really needs your help. A drug addict, a robber, someone suicidal, someone abused. Go save a lost soul. Then come back and talk to me fellow.

    219. umeezee October 9th, 2008 at 8:55 am

      Remo you are a JOKE and a fool……..Don’t get mad cause you got called out you FAKE muslim wannabe…..just like all those rap artist you came here to talk about. I am a good man,,,, o well who are you to judge yourself? Are you so full of yourself that you don’t have to submit to the creator? I am going to spare you just this one time ONLY because one day you might see the light BUT know this for sure…ISLAM is the truth and anything other than that will lead you to one place and one place only HELLFIRE….Like i said you ain’t got a problem with me, your problem is with Allah(swt) and ISLAM…this is what tell you HOW to live your life not me. AND by the way…i am not perfect nor do i claim to be BUT at least i don’t think i am too good to follow the truth. And about your wife GOOD for you…too bad she married a guy that is CLUELESS try not to lead her down your sufi path. Anyway…go do what you do best CRY and go save a soul with your JACKED up beliefs jew!

      but ya’ll gotta agree that the title of the article ought to be changed.
      ‘Islam’ doesnt have an official religion, Muslims (of a particular community) may.

    224. umeezee October 24th, 2008 at 11:58 am

      Assalamu alaikum Brother XXXXXX, I hope this mail finds u in good health and iman. Thank u for your recent phone call updating me on the Islamic situation in XXXXXXX.

      Our quarrel with the Saudi salafis is not a simple one like many people would like to believe. Our quarrel is about the validity of the shahada of the Saudi salafis itself. I have strong doubts about their Islam to an extent where i wouldn’t even dishonor myself by going to the janaaza of a salafi, due to 4 major reasons. The first reason is that they go against the ijmaa of the ummah. Allah has promised the Hell-fire for anyone who is guilty of going against the ijmaa of the Muslims. Hence Allah said:

      And whosoever contradicts and opposes the Rasool after the guidance was made clear to him and follows a path other than the way of the believers, We shall keep him in the path which he has chosen and throw him in Hell — what an evil abode! surah an-Nisaa 4:115

      All the scholars of tafseer agree unanimously among themselves that the above-mentioned ayah is clear evidence that it is incumbent on all those who claim to be Muslims to abide by the ijmaa of the ummah. unfortunately the Saudi salafis are a stray sect because they are guilty of contradicting the ijmaa of the ummah hence they have made up their own islam. This puts them in the category of the zindeeq {heretic} Other famous zindeeqs of this century are the Nation of Islam started by Elija Muhammad as well as the Berailwia, Ahmadia/ Qadiyania, the ismailia/Agha khania etc etc.

      I will now outline to you the ijmaa which the Saudi salafis are guilty of going against. Ibn kathir and Ibn Taymiyya [rh] said:

      “It is known of Islam by necessity and it is the agreement of all the Muslims that if you dismantle the sharia it makes you become a kafir. Then ibn kathir elaborated and said: “And such a person should be fought till he returns to the sharia of Muhammad {saw}”

      Please review tafseer ibn kathir for the explanation of maida 50 for the evidence of what was said about the ijmaa of the muslims. Also see fatawa vol 28 pp.524 for the evidence of ibn Taymiyya’s verdict on this crucial issue.

      What causes me to abhor and despise the saudi salafis with a passion is because they claim to follow the 2 noble scholars ibn kathir and ibn Taymiyya yet they rebel against their ijmaa. This is hypocrisy of the highest order.

      The other issue we have with the Saudi salafis is that they do not practice al walaa wal baraa i.e. loving and hating for the sake of Allah. Al walaa wal baraa is one of the 7 conditions of shahada. The salafis give their allegiance to the greatest enemies of Islam in return for materialism. About people like these Allah said:

      And you love wealth fanatically. surah al fajr 89:20

      But you prefer the life of this world even though the Hereafter is better and everlasting. surah al a’laa 87:16-17

      The above-mentioned ayah is clear evidence that some so-called muslims their major concern is only the pomp and glitter of this world and not to spread the pure teachings of Muhammad {saw}

      The 3rd issue we have with the Saudi salafis is that they claim that tawheed Haakimiyya is not an aspect of the Deen. They even claim that tawheed haakimiyya is a bid’ah [cursed innovation] The Saudi salafis are so jahil they do not know that Muhammad Ibrahim [the shaikh of bin baaz] said in page 6 of his book tahkeem al qawaaneen:

      “Tawheed haakimiyya is the twin half of tawheed ibaada.”

      Some of them happen to be aware of this fatwa of Muhammad ibrahim so they reprint his book and remove this precious and crucial fatwa which was meant to guide the ummah of Muhammad.

      When prophet Yusuf was in prison he taught tawheed to the inmates in prison and he taught them all 4 branches of tawheed. hence he said:

      “There is no law-giver except Allah.” { inil hukmu illa lillah}surah yusuf 12:40

      The above-mentioned Qur’anic verse represents Tawheed haakimiyya hence anyone who claims that its not an aspect of the deen is guilty of rejecting faith in the very Qur’an itself and this means the salafis who reject Allah’s haakimiyya are infidels outside the fold of islam.

      The 4th issue we the members of ahlus sunnah wal jamaa’ah have with the salafis is that they do not reject the taghoot. In order for a person to be a Muslim he/she has to reject the taghoot and then believe in Allah. To believe in Allah is not enough to make us Muslims. The biggest taghoot in our midst today is the apostate regimes who have given their walaa {allegiance} to the USA, UK, Israel, UN, IMF, NATO and all the other dajjaal forces on the earth.

      The salafi scholars have reinterpreted Islam to cement the thrones of these apostate leaders in exchange for the material things of this world i.e. fame & fortune. Allah used 2 words to describe the scholars of the salafi movement in the Qur’an, donkeys and dogs. These descriptions are for all the wicked scholars of this ummah. A donkey doesn’t know the value of the knowledge which it has on its back and a dog if you feed him he lolls his tongue out and if you drive him away he still lolls his tongue out. Because the scholars of the Saudi salafis are on the payroll of these apostate regimes its haram to take your deen from them. They have become wicked scholars. About them ibn Mubaarak said;

      “If you see a scholar going to the gates of the leader don’t trust him with your deen because he is a thief”

      Allah said about rejecting the taghoot:

      And whosoever rejects the taghoot and then believes in Allah, then he has grasped the strongest of handhold that will never break. surah Baqara 2:256

      Not only did the Saudi salafis refuse to reject the taghoot but they have reinterpreted Islam to protect the regimes of these taghoots. This is apostasy of the highest order. Since the salafi as a movement have a problem with me Shaikh Faisal I suggest they accept my challenge for a public debate on the subject of Authentic Tawheed. The salafis of Nigeria accepted this challenge and the debate is now on the internet for the world to see who is lying and who is speaking the truth. If the salafis refuse to accept my challenge for a public debate on this crucial subject [Tawheed] which is the core of our deen, we shall dismiss them as a bunch of hypocrites & apostates who are there to lead the Muslims astray with their satanic interpretation of Islam. This is my answer to the salafis all over the world who have a problem with my aqeeda {creed}

      Yours in Deen,

      SHAIKH xxxxxxx

      P.S.
      assalamu alaikum bro Yousef. I forgot to mention a crucial point in my article about the salafis. the point is they are the real khawaarij yet they are calling everyone khawaarij. The hadith said the main sign of a khawaarij is that they leave alone the kuffar and kill the Muslims. These apostate regimes of the talafis allow the usa army who are crusader to use their land and airspace to kill 1000s of muslims in iraq & afghanistan so who are the real khawaarij, who are the real dogs of jahannam????

      JESUS IS LIFE – Just experience his love and you will never turn back. – But do not take my word for it – read the bible your self – the truth is there

    226. DefenderofDeen November 7th, 2008 at 6:38 pm

      Charles, All muslims LOVE jesus but we don’t let our love for him make us WORSHIP him as some christians have done.. I say SOME because not ALL christians think the trinity is a part of what Jesus came with. If you are on the FATHER son HOLY spirit idea you are more a follower of PAUL the lier than JESUS. The fact is my friend that. You CAN not post ONE DIRECT QUOTE from JESUS where he says he is GOD, BEGOTTEN son of GOD or Worship me….If you can show a direct quote…from the mouth of JESUS then write me and post it here….In my bible that i own the words of JESUS are written in red, perhaps you might start there…

      good luck with that we will be waiting Charles

      Islam – a way of life

      These artists, from what i see and hear are not living it.

      nough said.

    228. DefenderofDeen November 27th, 2008 at 7:35 pm

      what is Islam?
      Tawheed has 4 sections
      1Tawheed ar ruboobeeyah—- unity of lordship belief in 1 god alone without partners.
      2 Tawheed al-Asmaa wa Sifaat… belief in the 99 names ans attributes
      3Tawheed al-ebadah–unity of worship…worship ONLY Allah(swt)
      4 Tawheed al hakimiyah Belief that Allah Is THE ONLY law giver.

      when muslims understand these four you will INSHA ALLAH see muslims begin to practice in the manner which the companions practised islam…Islam is BEATIFUL and should not be watered down by scholars for DOLLARS and those who sit with BUSH and company….

      The kufar wish to kill your religion and hope that YOu keep it in your HOME…Why do we get so excited for OBAMA as if he can do something that ALLAH(swt) can’t? Obama Will NEVER be able to do ANYTHING unless ALLAH(swt) ALLOWES him to do it…so why waste time VOTING in democratic elections? belief in ALLAH your lord NOT democracy and the RULE of man… MEN will make what is HARAM halal…IE prop 8 and GAY marriage…ALLAH(swt) and Prophet LOT(AS) have already warned about this so why would muslims open up this issue for talks?

      it is a WAR on ISLAM people and we better wake up and smell the coffee….These rappers…if they want to be muslims alhamdulillah…let the read up and practice the best they can like the rest of us BUT they need to pick a side and pick NOW…..truth or FALSEHOOD…

      when the death angle comes for us he will NOT ask if we are ready SO let us be ready inshaAllah when he comes

      i seek the forgivness of ALLAH(swt) for any mistakes i post here. anything good is from ALLAH(swt) and anything bad or wrong was from SHAYTAN or myself….may ALLAH forgive us all ameen

      Q-Tip
      Q-Tip (born Jonathan Davis on November 20, 1970 in New York City), is an American rapper, actor, and record producer, and is the former leader of the group A Tribe Called Quest, from which he was also known as “Abstract”. He converted to Islam in the mid-1990s, and changed his name to Kamaal Ibn John Fareed. The Q in Q-Tip’s stage name stands for Queens, the borough of New York City from which he hails. It is also said to be a name that represents his ability to get into one’s ears. He also refers to himself as The Abstract (originally The Abstract Poetic) and Kamaal the Abstract.

      “Knowledge God”
      Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…
      What happened to gritty beats like this? The teachings of the Five Percent Nation of Islam (ushered into rap music by the great Rakim Allah) blend seamlessly with Raekwon’s criminal element. “Knowledge God” flaunts some of Raekwon’s best rhymes and solidified his spot as one of the genre’s premiere storytellers. He said a lot with a little, and his words painted images when he dropped lines like “Stay tuned, word up, I hope to see you in June/by the way, I seen your bitch, she was up in this cat’s room/Skeed up, weed the f@#k up, to top it off look beat up/with two crack fiends huggin’ your seed up.” Rewind-worthy indeed.

      Hello,

      I think this is the only way black people can differ from others in the USA only, I live in a country where we have muslims and christians, and no matter your color, you can go to these holy places.

      I was muslim and converted to christianity, and I remember going to the Mosque, there were black and white people…. and going to the church,
      I was sitting next to a black person, and an asian, in front of me was a white man, and at the moment of peace we were all shaking hands and smiling, if in America there is a church for black ppl and one for white ppl then its not about religion, it’s about the goverment, no matter you’re black or white you go to church or mosque to praise God, not the people around you.

    236. Prophetik Soul April 27th, 2009 at 2:43 pm

      As a Christian, I would never claim those who are favorable toward Christianity but do not practice it. The thing that you are missing is that in the United States, many people treat religion like they are in a cafeteria. They take what sounds good and convenient at the moment and toss back what they dont like. If you want to equate disrespecting women, shooting people, and profanity with Islam, you are only confirming what some already believe.

      There are plenty of rap artists who claim to be Christian but their fruit tells me otherwise. In the Bible, it says judge not but it talks about accontability and you will know them by their fruits. One of the clues for me is they rarely attend church and dont display the right kind of spirit.

      Good luck in aligning yourself with those who only want your religion when it is convenient.

      andre tarry, LOL even these rappers as DUMB as they might be KNOW that jesus isn’t GOD. If you think jesus is the way then please show us ONE SINGLE QUOTE FROM THE MOUTH of JESUS that says “worship me (jesus) or I am GOD” Bring us this quote from his lips and I myself will become a christian. A hint for you Andre Tarry… The words of jesus should be written in red in you MAN WRITTEN BIBLE> WE will wait till MONDAY the 8th after you have gone to church seeking help from your pastor in looking for such a quote” When you return empty handed…you might better understand that JESUS was a PROPHET just as MOSES or NOAH or LOT and Muhammad(pbut) peace be on all of them. Jesus was hated by the JEWS because he wanted to implement the LAW of GOD here on Earth and we muslims call this “sharia” IE LAW OF GOD…..” jesus saidof Israel…the lord our god is ONE he said OUR god. He also said ” i can do nothing of myself” Research Council of NICEA and you will see that the trinity is a MAN made matter…you are following PAUL not JESUS my friend. see you on monday i hope with you proofs…

    240. sunshine June 1st, 2009 at 11:01 am

      whether we are: christian, hindi, muslim, budhist, the list is endless, we have no right to judge unless we r utterly blameless!!! God/ Allah/ the Supreme whatever u believe in is the only one with the right to judge us all!!! they say do not hate your brother, hate what it is that he does wrong!!

    241. ISLAM June 7th, 2009 at 10:16 am

      Sunshine, I can’t say that I agree with you in regards to judging. I think we should be careful in our judgment, but Quran says to a degree that we can judge. The Quran states that we should work so that Allah, the messenger, and the believers may see our work. Why should the believers see our work? I think, because it allows the believers to see who is really with the mission. Then of course we can judge who is really working in favor of Allah in his messenger. So, if we have choose a leader we can choose one based on the best works. Same thing in the Bible…God instructs Moses to choose the best among the people to be chiefs over the people. He can only choose the best after making a judgment.

      That’s my lil two cents… :)

    242. umeezee June 7th, 2009 at 11:42 am

      it may be hard to cover this topic of who has the right to judge on this forum or i may just be limited in how I can make it clear. What i do know for sure is that ALLAH(swt) says if a husband and wife have a dispute they should call a family member from both sides to JUDGE the issue. Most people don’t include the fact that the judge must do so according to quraan and sunnah not his own WHIMS and desires. Allah said that the muslims are the BEST because they enjoin the right and forbid the EVIL and this is why THEY have the right to JUDGE between right and wrong according to quraan and sunnah over those who do wrong. Today the american courts can’t decide (judge) over the prop 8 issue…who has a right to marry two men or only a man and woman. The quraan AND Bible BOTH say SEX or marriage between the same SEX is WRONG. Prophet LOT in the BIBLE deals with these people and GOD all mighty DESTROYED the entire city and allowed Prophet LOT and family leave. This story in your bible should lead you to understand that the prophets of GOD were enjoining the good and forbidding the evil and this is why they were ALLOWED to JUDGE…..NOW that we have no prophets on earth ALLAH(swt) says the *believers are those that inherite this right from the prophets. Thats why I say YES WE have a right to judge between good and evil according to WHAT ALLAH(swt) says is good and evil. The quraan is called by many names and one of those names is the furqun…and that means it’s a book that tells you what is good and what is evil….those who judge by THIS book and are muslims and are doing what ALLAH(told them to do. I ask you this….IF the BELIEVERS of ALLAH(swt) and his MESSENGER(S) are NOT the ones who enjoin the right and forbid the evil then who is better to do this? You can’t say leave it to ALLAH(swt) because he has already given permission for us to do it so i ask again WHO???? christians? jews? the hindu…those same religions who say things like God has a son or daughters or can be worshipped by worshipping the male sexual organ the penis? It’s clear that we don’t want the average uneducated or moderate muslim telling people what is good or BAD but it’s still our job according to quraan. Moses had his 10 commandments so the argument that ONLY god can judge is eliminated BECAUSE here is a man or PROPHET and it’s clear in both bible or quraan. Given Moses only judged on what GOD said was good or evil. Now you just need the HAdith where ALlah(swt) has given permission or said that *Muslims have inherited this job after the prophets like MOSES or MUhammad who came with LAWS to be followed. It’s clear that abu bakr, and Omar and uthman and Ali all continued to follow the SHARIA given to them by Muhammad who was the LAST prophet and they were men like the rest of us not prophets.

      So in short, THOSE who know and understand the deen of ISLAM have been given the right to judge right and wrong by ALlah(swt) and his messenger(pbuh) The quraan tell YOU if you see and evil act STOP it with your hands..if you cannot speak out against and if you can’t do that then hate it in your heart….don’t you have to judge if the act is good or evil first?

      I leave you with the hadith…(recorded sayings off the lips of the holy prophet of ISLAM..Muhammad son of Abdullah from arabia…if you have these books look it up or search the hadith online if you wish.

      either way it’s clear for those who have understanding that YOU the lay man as well as the scholars of ISLAM have a duty to enjoin the good and forbit the evil and you have to judge between right and wrong to do that….

      “The Scholars are the inheritors of the Prophets.” [Abu Dawud and Bukhari

      where is MR. Andre Tarry with his bible verse and quote from Jesusmaking the claim to be GOD…..What happened TARRY? couldn’t find him saying such a thing…..did not you know it all preacher give you the quote lol…..I think bottom line is you you are the one who needs to “wise up” and follow Jesus….and shun PAUL the lier..

      Why do muslims want to convert everyone? Can’t they just be happy with who they are? People can worship whatever creator they want in my view! If it’s not mine, then that’s their problem and i’m not going to waste my time trying to convince them otherwise. Be happy with what you have and stop committing suicide and taking us with you to intimidate us. It doesn’t work.

    245. Aaisha August 15th, 2009 at 7:25 pm

      Ummm Most of this Folks are 5 % and nation of Islam there not Muslim at all. So no need for a list if your Muslim by speech and Actions Let a sista know.

    246. Aaisha August 15th, 2009 at 7:28 pm

      To judge We can Judge by Quran and Sunnah what has been established in this Religion is known and the Prophet Sallah alayhi wa salaam judged by these same Factor. Before we speak We should know what is Permissible and impermissible. SO we are Muslims As I stated above are Actions and Speech will prove it 100%. Leave the anit Judgement to the Kuffar as A Muslim As long a it doesn’t go over the Limits and Following Quran and sunnah. Allahu allim

      I wonder sometimes why so many blacks practice Islam when Arabs were (and are) more racist than Europeans. The practice of slavery in the Middle East was widespread, where African eunuchs and concubines could be purchased at souqs. You can even see it today, Arab racism being so deeply inscribed in the fundamental semantic structure of the Arabic language. E.g., the generic word for a black person is the pre-face “abd,” which translates as “slave,” as in “Abd”-allah (slave or servant of God). This linguistic norm, among many other racially-charged ones, is an expressive constant which holds true for the entire Arab-speaking world regardless of dialect and orthography.

    249. ISLAM August 23rd, 2009 at 2:21 am

      F18sure…. Yeah, it is true that some Arabs are racist, but that was the whole point of the coming of Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) to correct the wrong. And, yes they did practice slavery, but The Holy Quran teaches that the uphill road is to free a slave which is what Muhammad did. The call to prayer was first done and created by a black man named Bilal. Muhammd(PBUH) was quoted as saying that he say the footsteps of Bilal going into hereafter before his own people. So, obviously he didn’t look at black people with racist stigma that you profess. Second the generic word for blacks is not “abd” … Muhammad was a white man(pale arab), and his father was a white man by the name of Abdullah the very name of which you are speaking of. So, by your theory they were calling Muhammad’s father black? Chill out Son…. do some more study and come back.

    250. Aaisha August 23rd, 2009 at 2:27 am

      Firstly Islam is Not a Arab Relgion it is a Uni versal Religion, Besides Indonesian Make up More of the Muslim Population Than Arabs. And What Them being Racist So you say Has to do with Faith. In that Black Folks Want be Christians Either Note KKK and some Ultra Conservative Folks hate Blacks. Moving on, Slavery in Islam is not the Slavery of 400 years ago And if a Muslim adhere’s to Islam ,even the Slave has Rights and is Treated With Respect And are not looked upon as Nothing. Lol yes I’m a Slave of Allah So what are you a SLave to.besides you have No understanding of Islam every Muslim Who SubMits to Allahs Will is a Servant of Allah its not just blacks Who are SLaves to there Lord Who ever Submits to Islam .Where did you pull that stupid statement From. Thats the Most Ignorant Thing i have every Heard I’m a black American and Proud to a Muslim and Proud To a Slave of Allah. so please stop talking out the side of you Neck you make no sense and leave Islam to the Muslims and your, And Leave the I’m black and Mad issues to your self. Thank you. And another thing Just because There Arab does not Make them Muslim, or makes them Following there Religion Correctly. I Suggest you stop speaking on Islam and Slavery and worry about you Let the Muslim handle there own Affairs.

      May allah Protect All the Muslim from Ignorance of the Kaffiyoon and protect us from there speech.

      ANY CHRISTIAN who can provide the quote of JESUS claiming to be GOD OR the ONLY son of GOD can have $100.00….

      please provide the quote and tell us where we can review it and we will gladly give you the money.

      offer good for 30 days so OCT 26 will be the last day.

    254. Prophetik Soul September 30th, 2009 at 11:20 am

      umeezee,

      I can answer your question about Jesus but before that, show me in the Quran where Muhammad himself says he is illiterate.

    255. umeezee September 30th, 2009 at 1:03 pm

      shall we play this game….Surah 7 ayat 157 surah al a RAF….
      I am not sure if you speak arabic or not but you will be able to find a TRANSLATION of the meaning from what i provided if you don’t understand arabic. Being that Prophet Muhammad was the first to RECITE the quran to others,,,, this was what came out of his MOUTH.

      Now i answered you within minutes after reading your reply AND i went first although I asked my question….so let me repeat it again.

      SHOW me where JESUS himself claims to be GOD or ask others to worship him (jesus)… I imagine is should sound something like this..”I am Jesus, your lord and creator who commands you to worship me” if you have something from JESUS ( from his lips) please tell us WHAT bible you got it from and where we can review it and i will quickly send you the money i promised. I don’t wan’t to know what paul said or what luke or john said he said, i want the quote to come FROM the mouth of JESUS…i really hope that is clear..

    256. Prophetik Soul September 30th, 2009 at 1:30 pm

      Did God say Surah 7.157 or did Muhammad?

    257. umeezee September 30th, 2009 at 3:01 pm

      you are going off topic….let us remember that I asked my question FIRST and now you wish to change the topic..

      I have answered your question with 2 proofs but you have NOT given me anything….BuT to answer your question….the quran is a REVELATION from GOD which prophet Muhammad repeated and RECITED to the people so either way he said the words you read in the 2 ayat i listed. But if you want a better understanding of what OTHERS knew on this issue you could go to HADITH which will show that OTHERS had to write things for him or read things to him SOOOO either way the point is clear to everyone who reads this reply.

      Now that i have been so upfront as to provide you with 3 places to get this info…can you kindly give me what i asked of you? I think it’s only fair because i gave you an answer weather you accept it or not but you have NOT provided me with ANYTHING and i was the first to make the request brother….so be fair and you next reply shoul only be an answer if you have one ok? we can debate further AFTER you bring your proofs how about that? that seems fair enough to me.

    258. Prophetik Soul September 30th, 2009 at 3:10 pm

      umeezee,
      Thanks for answering my question. How you imagine it should sound is not really fair because then you are playing God. I can imagine plenty of things the Quaran should say to make me believe it is the Word of God. I must take it as it is and ask questions. When Jesus is not explicit, there is a reason and you must read the whole Gospel to understand why.

      Where does Jesus claim to be God?

      1.Jesus calls himself the ‘I am’ to the Pharisees in John 8:52-59. God calls himself the ‘I am in Exodus 3:14 when talking to Moses. It is clear in this passage that they want to stone Jesus for commiting what they would call blasphemy based on Leviticus 24:16a:

      “Anyone who blasphemes the name of the LORD must be put to death.”

      2. Jesus calls himself the Son of Man throughout the book of Mark which is a title used for the Messiah found in Daniel 7:13-15. In this passage, it says he will be worshipped.

      Along with this, Jesus claimed to forgive sins and that authority in heaven and earth was given to him. These are things that only God alone possess or can do.

      Even the Jewish religious leaders of his day knew he was making extraordinary claims which is why, in several cases, they planned to kill him and eventually led to his crucifixion.

      So when are you going to send my $$$? :)

      Nice try but no cigar yet my friend…
      jesus ALSO says NO man has seen GOD so from this we CLEARLY understand that anyone who saw JESUS could NEVER have been looking at GOD.. put that with the fact that YOU said you had an answer but never produced a quote from jesus says to me that even the best bible readers must admit that JESUS never claimed to be GOD ANYWHERE in the book. “son of MAN and the i am are NOT the same as JESUS telling people he is GOD or telling them to worship him.

      Jesus said i can do NOTHING of MYSELF and he also said or asked WHY call me good? none is good but the FATHER… hear yo o ISRAEL the lord OUR GOD he said OUR god is one

      so nice try but if you want the cash i promise then you have to give a CLEAR and direct quote from jesus NOT the words of others reporting what he said…ya feel me?

      go to church and ask the pastor for the correct quote then come back.

      You said:
      jesus ALSO says NO man has seen GOD so from this we CLEARLY understand that anyone who saw JESUS could NEVER have been looking at GOD.. put that with the fact that YOU said you had an answer but never produced a quote

      My response:
      You asked me to provide a scripture where Jesus claims to be God. There are many names for God and you should know this also about Allah. I provided two scriptures and explained. All you just did above was skate around what I said based on other things Jesus said. You did not even ADDRESS the scriptures I gave you. If you want to have a real debate:

      1. Read the scriptures yourself.
      2. Give a proper Biblical interpretation of those Scriptures (since you are claiming I am wrong)
      3. Give proper Biblical definitions of Son of Man and the ‘I Am’
      4 Give a proper explanation for why others thought he was God in multiple situations according to the Scriptures.
      5. Explain how Jesus could forgive sins.

      You said:
      so nice try but if you want the cash i promise then you have to give a CLEAR and direct quote from jesus NOT the words of others reporting what he said…ya feel me?

      My response:
      Basing your argument on what Jesus did not say according to your stipulations and ignoring the evidence that is presented wouldn’t even get you a hearing in any kind of scholarly debate. Why? Because your terms reveals your presuppositions. It is obvious you are not willing to follow the evidence where it leads. If you care about the evidence, then respond to the actual scriptures with proper Biblical exegesis instead of your opinion and show me what does these scriptures and titles mean.

      If you are not interested and doing the 5 points above, use your money to buy a Hebrew-Greek Bible and Commentary because I dont think you even read the scriptures I gave. Just hide it from your Imam…ya feel me?

    261. umeezee September 30th, 2009 at 5:24 pm

      the fact of the matter is that Jesus is NOT GOD nor did he EVER make the claim you put on him. THAT is why you could not bring anything that crap you provided. I asked you for a quote….you know something simple and straight forward like ” my name is JESUS and I am GOD…you gave me * JESUS said to such and such I am the I am…* when you say jesus said TO it means someone REPORTED that jesus said that and that is NOT a QUOTE…In my BIBLE the words of JESUS are in RED perhaps you might check there for starters so you can tell me what JESUS DID say. I don’t care what PAUL said or what LUKE or MARK said…I ONLY want to hear what JESUS said. SOUNDS SIMPLE TO ME…Muhammad said he was a prophet and messenger SENT by GOD…ALLAH(SWT) said HE IS the creator and the quraan has 99 attributes to further describe ALLAH and in both cases it is CLEAR who is who. JESUS said “no man has seen GOD” if you agree with this statement from jesus then you already know that your picture of that white dude with blue eyes is not god. Jesus also said that he can’t do anything on his own and the proof of that is that YOU claim some humans KILLED him after HE JESUS cried out for HELP ” MY god WHY have you forsaken me”? AND jesus prayed ” o lord pass this cup from me” who did jesus pray to????? himself? and HOW can GOD die? not to mention be killed by his own creation MEN. or how could GOD NOT have knowledge of all things? YoU will run into problem after problem but if you wish to show your hand then be my guest.. you have two books the OLD and the NEW testament and you can’t find little statement from the lips of jesus that can make this clear for his followers? GEEZ! this jesus you claim to be god is a MYSTERY MAN it seems…The JESUS in the quraan was a prophet just like NOAH, MOSES, LOT, muhammad and many others and NONE of them claimed to be GOD and for sure JESUS didn’t claim this either.. PAUL the lier and the trinity concept of the council of NICEA in 325 ad made up this lie.

      Jesus is a PROPHET and a MESSENGER SENT by GOD…..and his message was monotheism just like the rest . Jesus even told you he was SENT….seems like he says somethings VERY clear and other things he never got around to making (simple plain and clear)

      there is only one creator 1 god not 3
      no father son holy spirit stuff here my friend.

      GOD is NOT a HUMAN ya feel me?
      ya heard?
      holla!

    262. prophetik soul September 30th, 2009 at 5:43 pm

      I guess that is your long winded way of telling me you can’t handle the 5 points.

      I wish you would said that instead of frontin.

      When you are ready to really deal with what I said, email me. Otherwise, get your weight up by studying the actual Bible. You are in the minor leagues with your strawman arguments. I hope you don’t get in trouble when you buy the bible and commentary.

    263. umeezee September 30th, 2009 at 11:58 pm

      insults are a sure sign that your opponent has LOST lol.
      DUDE don’t get upset, I said you could wait till sunday after church because i see you need help lol. all i asked you to do was provide us with a quote that Jesus made where he says that he is GOD OR where he TOLD someone to worship him. DID you do that? NO you came with some weak stuff like so and so said JESUS HAD told him DAT he was the I am……come on BABY! come correct, you did understand what i asked for right LOL cause what you gave as your proof was anything BUT what i asked for. It’s ok i knew JESUS never made those comments to start with but you rushed in here all bold saying I got the proof but SORRY….i give you an a for effort ..nice try.

      the thing is NO matter what your lil bible says, IT IS ONLY a translation of something so it could never be the word of GOD or JESUS..you feel me? CAUSE jesus didn’t speak NO english LOL

      You don’t have the Original words of JESUS so really you have no idea what he said or didn’t say…ya feel me dog?

      Holla at CHA boy
      PEACE!

    264. Prophetik Soul October 1st, 2009 at 8:02 am

      I will say to you what you said to me. Stay on topic! LOL

      Dont worry, Im not upset with you. I just thought you wanted to have a real discussion. Seems like you just want to dance! LOL

      1. You did not give an adequate Biblical interpretation of why the scriptures and terms I provided are false. You just simply said they were. LOL

      2. Then you danced around the issues citing other things Jesus said and avoided #1 again.

      3. Then you danced around the block by citing issues of corruption, translations and avoided #1…again! I am starting to get dizzy! LOL

      Now, all of a sudden, you want to go off topic on other issues. Smells like desperation!

      You should talk to Muslims who actually know something about the Biblical interpretation.

      Let me help you out a little:

      “I tell you the truth,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!” At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds.
      John 8:58-59

      Tell me umeezee, what does this scripture mean? Why did Jesus say it? Who was he talking to?

      Whether you believe Jesus said it is not the issue right now. You asked for a quote where he claims to be God presupposing you were open to the possibility. Apparently, if you are not, then it is dishonest to ask the question.

      I suspect that you will dance around the issue…again!

      ONELUV

    265. h October 1st, 2009 at 8:35 am

      I’m actually not in the discussion, but just want to pop up and say:

      With regard to the verse you quoted… I dont know about ‘I am’, but the fact that Jesus ‘hid himself’ should show you something !

      + Jesus is mentioned in bible as son of man 85 times whereas son of god only less than 20 times…

      + Melchisedec (in hebrews) is known to be ‘Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God…’
      Whats up with this?

    266. umeezee October 1st, 2009 at 12:14 pm

      John 8:54-56 Jesus answered, “If I glorify myself, my glory is nothing; it is my Father who glorifies Me, of whom you say, ‘He is our God’; 55 and you have not come to know Him, but I know Him; and if I say that I do not know Him, I shall be a liar like you, but I do know Him, and keep His word. 56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day, and he saw it and was glad.”

      A. John 8:54 is yet ANOTHER proof Jesus is not God, nor is he claiming to be deity, because he clearly states, “…it is my Father who glorifies me, of whom you {Jews} say, ‘He is our God.’ Jesus says it very plainly, “MY Father…” is the One you Jews say, “He is OUR God.” No mistake about it.

      B. Jesus in effect tells the Jews, “I know God and you don’t know Him.” For proof he uses the Jews’ own words against them, saying of Abraham, “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day, and he saw it and was glad.” Now Abraham was not alive to see Jesus’ day was he? Abraham lived over 400 years BEFORE Moses was born! In the Greek text of John 8:56 the word “it” is omitted; Bible translators have erroneously inserted it (no pun intended).

      C. What Jesus is saying is that Abraham rejoiced at the day the Messiah would come, and he “SAW” by FAITH, not literally in the flesh. Now as you read John 8:57, notice that the Jews MISINTERPRET what Jesus said about Abraham rejoicing to see (by faith) his (Jesus) day.

      John 8:57 The Jews therefore said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?”

      · Did Jesus claim to have actually SEEN Abraham physically with his two eyes? No! Jesus said nothing of the sort; all Jesus said was that Abraham rejoiced to see the day the Messiah would arrive. This is a VERY important point to understand verse 58 and what Jesus says next.

      John 8:58-59 Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.” 59 Therefore they picked up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself, and went out of the temple. NAS

      · Why are they trying to stone Jesus? We know it was not because Jesus claimed to have seen Abraham. The answer is found to a great extent in the Greek; the words translated, “was born,” are better translated, “existence” (i.e. – meaning to exist). Also, the word translated as, “before,” is the Greek word, “prín,” from a root word “pros” meaning “superior; first in rank or title.”

      Therefore, John 8:58 is more accurately translated as, “Truly, truly I say to you, I exist as superior in rank to Abraham’s existence.” The UBS Greek text reads, “prín Abraám genésthai egoó eimí” In other words, Jesus is telling these Jews that his rank in the kingdom of God is greater than that of their father Abraham. Once he said this, the Jews took up stones to stone him to death.

      I don’t know what other proof i can give you my good friend.. ALSO the reason i never went to this point is BECAUSE all of this is what JOHN reported JESUS said and i told you i did not want or care what JOHN or the others CLAIMED jesus said because we both know JOHN never met jesus and he is only reporting what people told his was said so i reject it for that reason. ALSO i told you that in all the bibles i have seen….the words of JESUS can usually be found written in RED…i told you to find a DIRECT quote from the lips of JESUS but you gave me the words of JOHN…i might be possible you didn’t understand what i was asking you for…..so in short….the CHALLENGE is still open if you care to find the actual words of JESUS.

    267. umeezee October 1st, 2009 at 12:54 pm

      Where does Jesus claim to be God?
      1.Jesus calls himself the ‘I am’ to the Pharisees in John 8:52-59. God calls himself the ‘I am in Exodus 3:14 when talking to Moses.

      these two things are not the same by the way….

      jesus says according to the words of JOHN before abraham {was born} i am….. meaning either in rank as mentioned earlier OR as explained in quraan God decreed EVERYTHING 50 thousand years before he even created the earth…with this understanding you can easily see how jesus could make such a statement. it would mean before the birth of abraham and others the decree of GOD had been set or written..in short GOD knew who would be born and WHEN they would die and what type life and position they would hold in this life…i don’t want to go too deep into this because it is a big topic and too much for email better to discuss in person or on the phone or something. but anyway the last thing i wanted to clear up was ahh forget it

      in exodus where Moses is speaking and asking…GOD gives the reply I am the i am. The real problem is that the bible is translated and no two are the same so each time you read it thinking it’s the word of GOD you understand it according to who it has been translated. some words are added to clarify things and some words are taken away. this could never be the words of GOD because again it’s a translation of SOMETHING..

      you don’t have this issue with the quraan because the quraan is STILL in the original ARABIC and each ramadan muslims all over the world recite the same exact words….yes we have translations of the quraan in english but we also have the original script and this is a FACT

    268. Prophetik Soul October 1st, 2009 at 3:15 pm

      FINALLY! ::::::::clapping hands::::::::::::::::::::::

      Look for my response.

    269. Prophetik Soul October 2nd, 2009 at 8:36 am

      Thank you for a response.

      But before I respond, you wrote something that is confusing me.

      In your last statement you said ‘The real problem is that the bible is translated…’

      Let me tell you what this says to me based on your writings:

      Now you posed a question earlier (about Jesus’ deity) that I have been attempting to answer. You recently gave your Biblical interpretation of John 8: 52-59 (but did not respond to the Son of Man comment) and then you talked about Bible translation as the real issue.

      #1. If bible translation is the real issue for you, why did you even ask for evidence of Jesus’ deity in the Bible if you dont even believe what is written is reliable?

      #2. Why would you cite other things Jesus says in the Bible as evidence to support your point if you believe the Bible is not reliable?

      To me, that looks like you want to have it both ways: It’s corrrupt where I disagree but its okay where I agree.That is contradictory and that means my response is a waste of time.

      The Bible either is the Word of God or it isnt. Either it is reliable or it is not. Choose your poision and argue your point.

      I wouldn’t say that the Quran is corrupt and then hopscotch around it choosing verses that I like or dont like to support my POV. The Quran should stand as the Word of God according to its claims just like the Bible. Both cannot be the Word of God.

      In debate circles, this would be considered either dishonest or naive.

      So do you want to deal honestly with, according to you, the real issue of Bible and Quranic translation or do you want to simply dance in circles?

      What is the real issue here? I dont want to waste your time or mines.

      My email is on the board if you want to go deeper (although I do have a rebuttal to your John 8:52-59 interpretation).

    270. Swarth Moor October 2nd, 2009 at 9:49 am

      For the record,

      The Bible is clearly a book that has been corrupted. So there is really little point in arguing over “which translation is valid,” when no one has the original book from which the translations are being derived. Furthermore, the various Churches have different Bibles (the Catholic Church, the Coptic Church, the Protestant Church, the Ethiopian Church, the Russian Church, etc.) all have DIFFERENT BIBLES. And i don’t mean that they merely have the Bibles in different languages, but the various Churches can’t even agree on the contents of the Bible.

      Secondly, after one establishes that the Bible is not remotely reliable, then it is fine to show that the Bible itself contradicts Christian doctrine (or that the Bible contradicts itself). This demonstrates that the Christian–even from his own point of view–has nothing to support his claim. Furthermore, one can show the historical development of Christianity or the Bible to further show that what the Christians are on is a fraud.

      Lastly, putting the Bible aside, it is evident the Christian doctrine is ludicrous. God is One. God is Eternal–that is, uncreated. God was before time; hence God does not change. God was before Heaven, space, directions, and other dimensions, and God is as God was. Hence, God is not in the Heavens, and God never was on earth. God exists without being in a place. God is Free-of-Need; if God were in a location, then God would be a body and dependent upon space. That which is dependent can’t possibly be the Eternal Creator of the Universe. Additionally, Jesus was (and is) a creation; he is an originated and temporal being. He had a beginning to his existence. THE ORIGINATED CANNOT BECOME BEGINNINGLESS. Asserting that God is Eternal–but also, temporal is an absurdity that has to be rejected by any reasonable person. This is enough for one with some common sense.

      With Allah is the success.

    271. umeezee October 2nd, 2009 at 11:46 am

      brother you are correct and you have been a true trooper about this whole thing. I forgot about the son of man part….right now i have to go to jummah prayer but shall return inshaAllah. Please forgive me for missing that part and for and problems i caused you.

      keep going and i will keep my mouth shout and will not say anything about the Bilbe going forward because that can easily be considered rude and i should NOT be rude with you. like i said you have been very kind and understanding during this entire issue.

      My response:
      So you are telling me that all the qurans found in the world…are identical? Are you also telling me that ALL Muslim sects agree on the contents of the Quran?

      Secondly, after one establishes that the Bible is not remotely reliable, then it is fine to show that the Bible itself contradicts Christian doctrine (or that the Bible contradicts itself). This demonstrates that the Christian–even from his own point of view–has nothing to support his claim. Furthermore, one can show the historical development of Christianity or the Bible to further show that what the Christians are on is a fraud.

      My response:
      I agree but that is not what umeezee did. He was not demonstrating unreliability. He was using what he claimed as an unreliable source (the Bible) to support his claims. For example, you can’t say the law is wrong and then use that same law to uphold your claim. That makes no sense and is a logical contradiction. This actually demonstrates that the person doing this does not know the rules of debate or is being dishonest.

      Your point about contradiction applies to the Quran as well, right?

      Lastly, putting the Bible aside, it is evident the Christian doctrine is ludicrous. God is One. God is Eternal–that is, uncreated. God was before time; hence God does not change.

      My response:
      All of what you said may describe Allah in his totality but it does not fully describe the one true God YHWH.

    273. h October 3rd, 2009 at 7:53 am

      The Muslims regardless of the sects believe in the oneness and uniqueness of God and the Messengership of Muhammed (saw) and Prophethood of Adam, Noah……. Moses, Jesus ! (I’m not talkin about the sects which were made up yesterday)
      The difference of opinion is not in the Belief System or the Creed, unlike Christianity where the sects differ in the basic belief itself !

      All the Qur’ans throughout the world ARE identical !!

    274. umeezee October 14th, 2009 at 12:26 pm

      Two weeks have passes and not 1 statement from the mouth of ISA(as) IE JESUS stating that he made a claim to be GOD ALMIGHTY.

      People need to understand and admit that this is something that people made up and put on him for selfish gain and other reasons.

      ISLAM is the truth…and the correct way or path is to worship GOD ALONE as he is THE creator….do not worship the things that GOD has created. God created JESUS and Jesus was born just like me and you but he did not have a father…and this does not make GOD his father. ADAM did not have a mother OR a father but we don’t call adam the son do we? NO!

      so people muslim or other PLEASE read your Quran or bible and just take it for what it says….don’t ADD your own understanding or spin trying to make people ” superhuman” we only have one creator and he alone created ALL…so worship him alone..

      peace out people

      Anyone who wants to continue this discussion, please email me at getwizdomnow@hotmail.com.

      A blog like this does not allow the space necessary to have a in depth discussion.

    276. umeezee October 17th, 2009 at 2:00 pm

      we choose to keep it here in OPEN view….away from the tricks of those who wish to trick muslims and lead them to the worship of MAN and other created things. this BLOG is exactly where an issue like this needs to be…OUT IN THE OPEN where the truth can be seen by all and none of us has the ability to erase comments and hide what was written. JUST bring proofs and let the people decide what they accept and what they reject( falsehood) IE that jesus was or ever claimed to be GOD.

      you must admit by now that THESE words of MAN BEING GOD NEVER came from the mouth of JESUS ISA bin MARIUM.

      ALLAH(swt) IE GOD ALMIGHTY is THE ONLY creator and he created JESUS, MUHAMMAD, NOAH, MOSES AND ABRAHAM peace be upon them all.

      THE trinity concept is PURE FALSEHOOD.

      COME TO ISLAM before YAKEEN ( death ) comes to you.

      May ALLAH(swt) forgive us our sins and save us fro the fire who fule is men and stones!

    277. Prophetik Soul October 17th, 2009 at 2:35 pm

      hahahahahahaha!

      I might trick you through email, huh? Maybe I can sprinkle some holy water on my computer and ask God to make you cry! LOL

      I dont care how many people are in the email discussion. The depth and length of these debates will take up this blog and the topic is about Islam and hip-hop, not the truth of Islam or Christianity.

      But if you are afraid you will be tricked, then:

      1. What does that say about the truth you claim to have?
      2. Why would you debate someone that would be dishonest here or in email?
      3. Are you afraid of the arguments I will present?

      If you believe I will be dishonest, fine. Leave it here. Maybe someone else will pick up the challenge. I am not interested in convincing you I am trustworthy. What we say should point to our integrity.

      “Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.”
      2 Corinthians 4:2

    278. umeezee October 17th, 2009 at 3:11 pm

      i think i made my point, i trust you fine….it’s others who might mislead young muslims into some sufi type worship of a MAN.

      the REAL issue is that Jesus NEVER said he was GOD…that my friend is the issue and for people to CLAIM they can prove he said such and then bring words from OTHERS is tricky if you ask me. I said several times that I ONLY ONLY ONLY want to see what JESUS said, NOT MARK LUKE Matthew or JOHN or even paul CLAIM he said. How hard is it to give me something JESUS said? It seems like it would be VERY easy after all you claim HE said it.

      The truth is EVERYTHING you find jesus saying points to the fact that he worshipped GOD. Jesus fell down on his face and prayed to god according to the bible but for some reason this means NOTHING at all to you because you choose to believe that GOD is a human like you and me and to be honest this gives you the freedom to do ANYTHING you want because you claim HE died for YOUR sins.. so in short you have a free ride to do whatever you feel and make your own rules as you go. Muslims on the other hand need to pray and repent and do good deeds to be granted paradise by GOD. We don’t mind working because we believe that it is worth it. you think it’s promised to you no matter what and this is a trick from shaytan and why we can’t move this topic to your private email. who would suggest such a thing.

      anyway, i have noticed you ALWAYS like to have the last word so i expect you will post one last time after me JUST so you can in your own mind feel you one something…..what you will win is hellfire for yourself if you don’t give up IDOL worship and polytheism.

      well my friend i LEAVE you with this. We invite you to the worship of the GOD that is THE only creator…the one who created the heavens and earth and ALL that is including but not limited to all the prophets such as Adam, Muhammad, Jesus, Noah, Moses, Abraham, david, LOT, Solomon etc etc . leave the servitude of man and enter the service of the ONE true GOD ALLAH(SWT) the most high. Do not fear the word ALLAH it only means the creator yours and mine so worship him alone brother. Remember that we muslims do not reject the truth that can still be found in the bible even after it has been TRANSLATED from aramaic to greek to latin and to english so you HAVE no original text to start with. Jesus said hear ye o israel the lord OUR OUR OUR god is ONE….he also said why call me GOOD NONE is good but the FATHER IE the creator….the bible says many things that make it CLEAR to you that ALL the prophets TAUGHT monotheism and you are changing it to make it polytheism ……

      Jesus said his message was for JEWS and NOT the gentiles IF you are jewish then that is fine but if not then Muhammad is YOUR prophet BECAUSE he came with a message for ALL of mankind. This is the clear truth….we are FAR beyond the fact that jesus was not GoD and we have proven that from HIS actions and words.

      come to islam….i do not plan to post on this issue again not even if you post like i would expect you to do. you should read and reflect of what i have written and think to yourself about what you want to do from here. i people choose to email you then fine but I will rest here. I ask the creator to guide you to his truth and forgiv us all our sins and grant us the paradise ameen.
      no hard feelings, enjoy life while it last because surly it will end,,,,,do not die with the corrupted belief that a man died for your sins because NO prophet or messenger of GOD almighty ever taught such a thing like that.

      PEACE to all… prophetic soul do as other prophets before you have done…..worship GOD alone.

      No… please keep it in email. Both of you. I get it… no one ever wins these debates on religion. And Hiphop consists of any/all religions.

      WTH this is more important than beats and rhymes bro, and it was finished along time ago anyway but thanks.

      hey that rhymes…… i guess it’s true what they say, any fool can rap over a beat LOL

      WTH, thanks for validating some of why I said this should be in email.

      Since you are expecting my last words in eager expectation and excitement, here they are! LOL

      1. From the beginning, I submitted the I AM scriptures and the Son of Man title to you as two pieces of evidence.
      2. You responded to the former but not the latter. In that response, you indicate that the real issue for you was Bible translation.
      3. I asked you to clarify this issue so I dont waste your or my time responding to tangential questions and offered my email address.
      3. Then you apologized for not responding to the Son of Man title. But you still DID NOT clarify the issue.
      4. Later, you chastised me for not responding to your first answer, did not respond to the Son of Man issue and still DID NOT clarify what the real issue is.

      That my friend is what’s called disingenuous and a waste of time.

      Based on the previous posts, I have discerned that you simply want to spout what you know. This makes your interest in these issues appear juvenile and prideful. The fact that you would assume that I would post the last word to make it look like I won? LOL. This post isnt even addressing the real issues; it is establishing the fact that you either forgot or avoided attempts to clarify the real issue. You cannot have a debate if you dont know what you are debating about. LOL

      If they like let them be part of the CIA plan to to give ISLAM a bad name, we should all pray that they will one day become a proud MUSLIM like Mohammed Ali and stop calling them 5%ners and non muslims because it will be very very offensive to them if they are not and which can make them not to practice the religion at all.

      i havent been here for years, i am Fatal Skillz in the beggining of the page. I surely can not BELIEVE the way i used to speak but anyway.

      Your bible is distorted, there are verses that have been changed soooooo much, it is noted down in history high scholars have exposed this YOUR OWN SCHOLARS. Why were note worthy gospels discarded from the bible? because they contradicted what the bible said.

      The whole trinity doctrine was rethought by the person who created, he said “maybe this trinity thing doesnt work” on his death bed!!!

      here go to this website

      http://www.answering-christianity.com it goes way more in depth then i can ever go in

      Inshallah Allah will guide you Prophetic Soul

      oh and Styles P is muslim, not a practicing muslim but he does believe in La ilaha ililaha muhammad ur Rasoulul LAH!

      in one song called rainy dayz freestyle he said how he converted at a young age, in another song he said he should’ve done been reading arabic, making salat

      you mention Proof from D12 what is your evidence?

    287. Steve-O December 27th, 2009 at 9:42 pm

      This is an interesting topic. Not the religion of Hip-Hop. Either way, that has zero impact on my faith. What’s interesting is the way we treat religion in pop culture. I’m not a Muslim but people in my religion get excited when they find out celebrities practice it. So I’m not lecturing Muslims. Peace.

      We should avoid arguing about the sincerity of other people’s faith.

      However, it seems many of these celebrities haven’t said that they are actually Muslims. They have made vague references to the Islamic faith.

      Is it better to claim someone IS Muslim than it is to claim they AREN’T a Muslim? Either way, we don’t really know what’s in their heart.

    288. maryam irani January 29th, 2010 at 2:28 pm

      yo, seriously dude, it’s unfortunate black americans play that “love your colonizer” role and “convert” to what they think is islam…it’s basically a trend for them, it’s sad because it all reverts back to the oppression they have endured here in america and africa. us arabs and persiand were the first to rape africa and turn them muslim, and i guess they feel that is more valid than when the white europeans raped and turned them christian. whatever, i say the way to life is staying happy with what you are, accepting it and being better and representing to the fullest. i have many issues with the fusion of islam and culture, where sexist en re-write the religion to suite them, but if anybody ever asks, i would never deny i am born muslim. i want to better my religion, not front on it. god bless them, may they find their true identity and stop froning making it harder for us.

    289. umeezee January 29th, 2010 at 5:12 pm

      this girl is about to piss me off. first off…Islam is not only for ARABS…it means submission to the will of GOD (ALLAH) not submission to arabs or arab culture so get that shit straight sista! secondly ISLAM does not consider RACE but stinking KAFIR wanna be muslims do. Allah(swt) does not look at you bodies..(skin color) he looks at your HEART….if you picked up a book on emaan or tawheed every once in a while you might know that already. and newsflash…worshipping fire is NOT from ISLAM so chew on that. na MEAN? Plenty of people have taken advantage of Africa, it happens to be a big place ya know…but the religion of ISLAM never forced it’s way on africans or african americans. People who might *claim* to be muslims like yourself go around with these racist fucked up ideas and then people hate on Islam for what your did. Your version of ISLAM is jacked up and no person should want to be apart of that crap you call ISLAM. TRUST me what you are on is anything BUT what prophet MUhammad came with. Abu Bakr baught the freedon of BILAL and he NEVER took BILAL as a slave…. the christian king who took the first muslim in who made hijra was from ethiopia AFRICA….what about the learning center of Timbuktu also in africa…

      you might have been born in a muslim country and ALL children under the age of puberty are considered muslim according to islam so you are nothing special now it seems. and last but not least….what makes the religion look bad is so called muslim sisters like yourself who don’t know shit but go around shooting off at the mouth about how THEY view Islam and what OTHERS should be doing…..why are you even here on a RAP music forum if you so pius MUSLIM GIRL?

      speaking like you are from the streets….shit if anything YOU make it harder for US……GO home it IRAN…run you ass back if you don’t like afro americans.. we built this place…you JUST LIVE here.

      and put on a hijab!

    290. Ahmed April 9th, 2010 at 11:34 am

      Salaam alaikum,

      Alhamdulilah, Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world.
      Realy and truelly i dont see Nation of Islam and The Nation of Gods and Earths and other branches of so called Islam as Islamic. The main reason is that they believe that their founders are prophets send by Allah, which is not true, cause Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) was the last prophet send by Allah. Sunni Islam is the real religion of Islam that follows the Words & teachings of Allah (swt) passed on to Prophet Mohammed(PBUH).
      But at the same time I gotta praise these ppl on some level at least they acknowledge that there is only one God that is Allah, and trough this, they might be able to make their way to the proper teachings of Islam.

      Dont get it twisted i listen to Hip-Hop, and I know its forbidding to listen to Hip-hop in Islam, but I am amazed by the amount of Artist that are turning towards the deen, subhan allah, May Allah (swt) reward them.

      Ps: Bizzy bone and Flesh-N-Bone from the legendary hip-hop group Bone thugs-N-Harmony converted to Islam aswell.

      But who i gotta rate the most are former rappers Loon (Bad Boys) and Napoleon (outlawz). The are properly focused on th teachings of (Sunni) Islam and they visit other countries and talk about Islamic teachings and they also talk about their former lives and how Islam has changed their lives and gave them happiness and inner peace and advice other muslim on how to practise Islam and how to get out of this life of sin..

      Salaam alaikum People

    291. maryam irani April 9th, 2010 at 1:25 pm

      to umeezee:
      are you slow brother? should i type in a language you understand better? first of all, i am born here, so shut your mouth. second of all, you put on a hijab since you’re already co-opting on a foreign culture it seems.
      ISLAM is a religion genius boy, not a culture. how can i be racist? how dare you tell ME to put a hijab on, wallah, you lost your mind. if you could read, you would see, nothing is remotely pious (this is how you spell pious by the way), about my statements.
      i am from HARLEM, yes i am on a hip hop site, i grew up in Hip Hop, real Hip Hop. i can type for days and days about who i am and what i contribute, but it’s just pointless for someone who writes: “this girl is about to piss me off”. niiiice.
      you’re worse than a white american “go home to IRAN”. i am so disgusted right now.
      go grab a reading list from your nearest revolutionary book store, if you need recommendations holler at me “brother”.
      New Islamic word of the day for umeezee: “fitnah”. go look it up son.

    292. maryam irani April 9th, 2010 at 1:27 pm

      the only thing you got right is this:
      “Islam is not only for ARABS…it means submission to the will of GOD (ALLAH) not submission to arabs or arab culture so get that shit straight sista! secondly ISLAM does not consider RACE but stinking KAFIR wanna be muslims do. Allah(swt) does not look at you bodies..(skin color) he looks at your HEART…”

    293. umeezee April 10th, 2010 at 3:08 pm

      Maryam? how did you get to be named after the mother of ISA(AS) Not even close. You have no manners and you have no deen from what i can tell. You are a racist and our prophet has told us that the racist is like the BUG who rolls the stool…you know stool or SHIT!…

      I wish i could come at you with ahadith but you are probally a shia anyway LOL and by the way persians and arabs are NOT the same so pick a race you fake ass muslim girl.. I bet you are a christian posting here to put muslims in fitnah but you will lose if you go there with me silly rabbit.

      How can you be a decent muslim sister when you let fall out of your tea stained yellow tooth mouth a comment like that? go marry your cousin you disgusting racist!

      bye MARY

    294. maryam irani April 11th, 2010 at 3:39 pm

      umeezee,
      i don’t really understand what your moronic reference to christianity means? if you had an education you would know the only christians that exist in iran, are not persians but ethnic armenians…but you still make no sense. do you hate christians or something.
      maryam is a wonderful name, and i am grateful that my parents bestowed this name on me…unlike you who probably killed of the name your momma gave you for something like jihad, karim, abdul or whatever you chose. (our religion does not require converts to change their names that’s a myth).

      i am shia, and what? don’t tell me you converts absorb the saudi propaganda when you get your little shehadas do y’all? wow, that’s a new one! we’re evil, right? we’re heretics?

      persians and arabs are the same RACE, different ethnicity, but the same race, like koreans and chinese. you could use a good course in anthropology son.

      it’s true middle eastern muslims marry cousins, i’ll pass. you remind me of a bunch of the fools i met in philly with the coolat shorts and beards. lol.
      salam wa aleikum, seriously, peace seriously be upon you.
      tea-stained mouth? very creative because i’m a dentist by profession! lol.

      as for you, it’s clear you’re a “google gangstah”. get on online fights with an anonymous identity and pop off after you google shit and get on wikipedia.

    295. umeezee April 11th, 2010 at 4:08 pm

      LOL MARY you are a trip, you are funny…..like i said i wish you had enough understanding about ISLAM to continue this chat. BUT now that i see you are a shia probably a 12er i have nothing more to add…Now i see why you are so lost.

      all up in here trippin on Muslims and Blacks but you can’t get enough of something i see LOL…..

      and you can call me Umar or Omar as in the second LEADER of ALLLLLLL the muslim Ummah last name ALI cause alhamdulillah

      i have the sunni Aqeedah and not that crazy beat yourself till you bleed shia NONSENSE!

      it’s all your fault anyway, so go beat yourself some more LOL

    296. h April 12th, 2010 at 1:11 am

      MR,
      Bro, please stop the comments section. There is no benefit from this.
      JazaakAllah Khair.

    297. mkweli April 12th, 2010 at 6:56 am

      Jesus..the only true GOD…Bible…the best BOOK.

      For the record, Nas is no MUSLIM.
      Just because he has an arabic name, don make him islam.
      Egyptians christians got arabic names!

      You dont even need to read holy books to know the right
      Religion! the evidence is all around…check out is going on
      around the world these days!

      Anything which preaches hatred is EVIL
      Anything which preaches love is GOOD.
      choose your position!

      True GOD dont use force to get followers!

      Black Americans can’t be blamed for being
      confused after what the whites did to them
      so they decide to take it out on christianity,

      But on the real, the first invaders to Africa
      were the Arabs ( muslims ), they are the worst BABYLONS
      because they tortured and exploit africans and they provided no schools
      no hospitals no nothing unlike the BRITISH, SPANISH e.t.c

      German’s were the second worst!

    298. umeezee April 12th, 2010 at 6:35 pm

      i agree MR…as i was doing ISHA prayer last night i was feeling some guilt for my comments….MAY Allah(swt) forgive me and i ask you to forgive me for my behavior on your site as well.

      Walaikum Salaam.
      Omar
