93% of Muslims Worldwide Condemn 9/11!

Alhamdulillah! Finally a professional research done throughout the Muslim World regarding 9/11 and terrorism.

About 93 percent of the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims are moderates and only seven percent are politically radical, according to the poll, based on more than 50,000 interviews.

In majority Muslim countries, overwhelming majorities said religion was a very important part of their lives — 99 percent in Indonesia, 98 percent in Egypt, 95 percent in Pakistan.

But only seven percent of the billion Muslims surveyed — the radicals — condoned the attacks on the United States in 2001, the poll showed.

Busy Life

SubhanAllah!  These past few days, I have been really busy.  I haven’t gotten a chance to blog or even read blogs.  Halal Tube has also been slow in updating.  I just added a few lectures a few minutes ago.  Dhikr Tube hasn’t been officially launched yet.  I haven’t even touched it for weeks.  Sports Halaqah is pretty much dead and I’ll probably do the janazah in the coming weeks.  It’ll be re-focused to marketing Muslim sport leagues in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and the rest of the non-Muslim world.  I also have another major ground-breaking idea for the Muslim online ummah.  I can’t give out any details, but all I can say is it’s ground-breaking and very different from anything out there.

Heads up for all those who live in the DC-MD area.  If you live around there, please let me know of any active Muslim communities.

Duas are requested from all those who read this.  May Allah (swt) accept your duas.  Ameen!

Houston Respects Islam and Honors Hakeem Olajuwon

Organizers said they worked hard to ensure that the monument complied with Olajuwon’s Islamic beliefs. Rockets spokesman Nelson Luis told The Associated Press that details about the monument had not been released.Houston television station KRIV reported that it would focus on his jersey and accomplishments, but in keeping with the tenets of his Muslim faith, it won’t include a picture or likeness of him.

Alhamdulillah. “Hakeem the dream” was one of the greatest NBA players of all time. May Allah (swt) bless him and his family and accept their good needs rewarding them with jannat-ul-firdaus.
