The Solution to the Palestinians

Violence.  Revenge.  Death.  Decades of continous wars, peace treaties, truces, and other types of fitna has consumed the land of Palestine.  Ultimately death is the only end result of any of these actions by the conflicting sides.  Muslims have been fighting for years to gain back their lands, their honor and dignity.  They have sacrifcied their lives to end the occupation.  Nothing has changed with all of these attempts.  The Israeli terrorists continue to terrorize and invade the lands of Palestine.

Diablo 3

Diablo III
First Starcraft 2 and now Diablo 3!

Diablo 3

By the way for those who have no idea what Diablo 3 is, it’s a computer game that was extremely popular a few years back just like Starcraft. Blizzard paused Starcraft and Diablo development and focused on Warcraft with its great hit, World of Warcraft (which I have not played at all).

For those who do know…I’ll see you!

The SunniPath and Sh. Faraz Rabbani Break-up

Shaykh Faraz Rabbani recently blogged his departure from SunniPath:

Due to irreconcilable differences, I’m no longer associated with SunniPath in any way (as of early May 2008). I do not answer questions there, nor do I teach any courses there.

In my honest and humble upon, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani = SunniPath. With him gone, SunniPath will be different. Who are the other fulltime scholars of SunniPath? I mean I can’t think of any of the top of my head sadly. I’d have to go to their website and check the listings. I remember getting many emails from SunniPath listing the courses and almost everytime Sh. Faraz Rabbani’s name was on 3/4’s of the courses. The popularity of Sh. Faraz and SunniPath were a combined effort and they both were branded together.

For example you have Shaykh Hamza Yusuf and Imam Zaid Shakir who are synonymous to Zaytuna Institute. Shaykh Muhammad Alshareef and Shaykh Yasir Qadhi who are synonymous to Al-Maghrib Institute. Shaykh Faraz Rabbani was synonymous to SunniPath but as you can see I will have to rid that thought from my mind.

It’s sad to hear this about SunniPath’s booting of Sh. Faraz and/or vice versa. Sh. Faraz said it was due to “irreconcilable differences”. My vocabulary is extremely low (May Allah increase it!), but to dumb it down for people like myself, that basically means SunniPath was no longer feelin’ Sh. Faraz and/or vice versa. They weren’t compatible. Different understanding? Different beliefs? Well, we won’t really know. We only know that it was “irreconcilable differences”.

Sh. Faraz has started his own store called Seekers Media and it appears he is now part of the newly created Razi Institute, which has upcoming events in Toronto, Canada and Deleware, USA.

May Allah (swt) give success to all efforts that is pleasing to Allah. Ameen!

Open Apology to the Raef music group

In the name of God

I want to ask for forgiveness for my rude and mean attitude towards one of your videos in which you sang Tala al Badru Alayna with a rock twist.  My words were harsh and I did not deliver my opinion in the Muslim way.  I personally do not like the way the song was sung with the entire band but when it was the one brother in the acoustic version it was much better.  I have checked out your MySpace profile which contains some other songs and they are good.

I realize that there are many young Muslims who listen to this genre of music and that the majority of artists and groups do not have halal lyrics.  So if God wills this as a means for Muslims to listen to something better than so be it.  God knows best.

With peace,


Malik Obama, the Half Brother of Barack Obama: “I don’t think that my being a Muslim has got anything to do with my brother being the President of the United States.”

[audio: malik-obama-inteview-israel.mp3]

“I don’t think that’s in any way going to be something to worry about. I myself am not speaking for him. But we are here, we love people in general. People love us. I myself love people who love me. You know, so, everything’s mutual. I can’t go [sic] in terms of Israel and Kenya and America, and so forth, you know, but based on what else I’ve heard him say and what I know of him as an individual, I don’t think Israel should worry too much, you know, about the connection. Because, I am a Muslim myself, and I don’t think that my being a Muslim has got anything to do with my brother being the President of the United States.”

This was a radio interview with an Israeli or Palestinian station.  Not sure which station, but ABC News got it from the Israeli Army Radio.  The reason I think it could be a Palestinian one is that at the end of the interview he says “Asalamualykum”, acknowledging he was being interviewed by a Musim.  I don’t think Israeli stations have Muslims on them so this is why I assume it might have been a Palestinian one.  Besides that point, I think Malik was right to say what he said.  It doesn’t matter if Barack Obama’s half brother is a Muslim.

It’s really amazing how God has planned all this out and there is a strong possibility that the next President of the United States will have a Muslim lineage.  God is the best of all planners.

Finally! Hundreds of Corporate Thugs Arrested!

It’s all over the news.  Former executives from major financial institutions like Bear Stearns.  Mortgage brokers, housing developers, estate agents and many other areas in the financial field have been arrested and under federal custody.  It’s about time these corporate thugs become responsible for their greed.

That they took usury though they were forbidden and they devoured peoples wealth wrongfully; we have prepared for those amongst them who reject faith a grievous chastisement.

Surah Nisa, Verse 161

Praise be to God for Islam!  God is great!

The Most Classical and Most Authentic Nasheed Ruined!

UPDATE: I apologized for my harsh tone in this post here.

Warning: contains music.

Asalamualykum wa Rahamatullahi wa Barakatuh to the brothers of Raef Music,

I appreciate your attempt to try to do a remix of one of the most well known, most classical and most authentic poem praising the beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), but the reality is you completely ruined it. It was like Kid Rock singing the Burda or Ricky Martin singing Allah hu Allah hu. I’m not trying to be mean. I’m just being straight up.

Please take the video down. Thank you.

JazakAllah khair.
