Islaam prohibits horrendous acts (bombings and other acts of terrorism) and does not condone this awful behavior.
If anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or to spread mischief in the land - it would be as if he killed all mankind , Allaah says in the Qur’aan about those who kill innocent people: and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind . Suratul Maidah 5:32 أَنَّهُ مَن قَتَلَ نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِي الأَرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا وَمَنْ أَحْيَاهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا
Prophet Muhammad stressed the prohibition of killing women and children on many occasions, even at times of war. Sahih Muslim
"Stop, O people, that I may give you ten rules for your guidance in the battlefield. Abu Bakr , the first successor to the Prophet established a detailed set of rules for Islaamic conduct in war: Do not commit treachery or deviate from the right path. You must not mutilate dead bodies . Neither kill a child, nor a woman, nor an aged man. Slay not any of the enemy's flock , save for your food. You are likely to pass by people who have devoted their lives to monastic services ; leave them alone ." Bring no harm to the trees , nor burn them with fire, especially those which are fruitful.
Allaah says in the noble Qur’aan: Do not kill yourselves. Surah An-Nisa’ 4:29 What about suicide bombing? وَلاَ تَقْتُلُواْ أَنفُسَكُمْ
Prophet Muhammad said: “ Whoever intentionally kills himself will be punished in the fire of Hell , wherein he shall dwell forever. ” Narrated by Bukhaari and Muslim What about suicide bombing?
Polygamy - a system of marriage whereby one person has more than one spouse. a. Polygyny - where a man marries more than one woman. b. Polyandry - where a woman marries more than one man. Polygyny is allowed in Islaam. Polyandry is not.
Islaam did not introduce polygyny. David - 12 wives, 3 concubines - (1 Samuel 18:27, 1 Chronicles 3:1-5, etc.) Moses - 2 wives - (Exodus 2:21 , Numbers 12:1) Solomon - 700 wives and 300 concubines - (1 Kings 11:3 , Song 6:8 , 2 Kings 10:1) Abraham - at least 3 wives - (Genesis 16:3, Genesis 25:1-6)
The Qur’aan is the only religious scripture in the world that says, ‘ marry only one ’ . فَانكِحُواْمَاطَابَلَكُممِّنَالنِّسَاءمَثْنَىوَثُلاَثَوَرُبَاعَفَإِنْخِفْتُمْأَلاَّتَعْدِلُواْفَوَاحِدَةً Then marry those that please you of women, two or three or four. But if you fear that you will not be just, then (marry only) one. Surah An-Nisa’ 4:3
Polygyny protects the interests of women and children in society. It requires men to spend on their additional wives and their offspring.
Only a minority (10-15%) of Muslims practice polygyny because of additional financial and psychological burdens of handling more than one family.
Western claim to monogamy is FALSE. In the West today, most married men have extramarital relations with mistresses, girlfriends and prostitutes.
The woman in the West has become a sex- object with which to sell products thereby pumping up the sexual tension of the society.
Molestation of women on a national scale is very common in the West. SOURCE: The Eighth United Nations Survey on Crime Trends and the Operations of Criminal Justice Systems (2002) (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Centre for International Crime Prevention)
The Hijaab is to make the Muslim woman known in the society as a virtuous and honorable woman.
The Ka’abah is the Qiblah i.e. the direction Muslims face during their prayers.
We have certainly seen the turning of your face, (O Muhammad), toward the heaven, and We will surely turn you to a qiblah with which you will be pleased. قَدْ نَرَى تَقَلُّبَ وَجْهِكَ فِي السَّمَاء فَلَنُوَلِّيَنَّكَ قِبْلَةً تَرْضَاهَا فَوَلِّ وَجْهَكَ شَطْرَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ وَحَيْثُ مَا كُنتُمْ فَوَلُّواْ وُجُوِهَكُمْ شَطْرَهُ So turn your face toward al-Masjid al-Haram . And wherever you (believers) are, turn your faces toward it (in prayer). Suratul Baqarah 2:144
It is important to note that though Muslims face the Ka’abah during prayers, they do not worship the Ka’abah.
- Allaah is the Arabic proper name for The Almighty God: Our Creator الله
Indeed, your Lord is Allaah , who created the heavens and earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne. إِنَّرَبَّكُمُاللّهُالَّذِيخَلَقَالسَّمَاوَاتِوَالأَرْضَفِيسِتَّةِأَيَّامٍثُمَّاسْتَوَىعَلَىالْعَرْشِيُغْشِياللَّيْلَالنَّهَارَيَطْلُبُهُحَثِيثًاوَالشَّمْسَوَالْقَمَرَوَالنُّجُومَمُسَخَّرَاتٍبِأَمْرِهِأَلاَلَهُالْخَلْقُوَالأَمْرُتَبَارَكَاللّهُرَبُّالْعَالَمِينَ
He covers the night with the day, chasing it rapidly; and ( He created ) the sun , the moon , and the stars , subjected by His command. Unquestionably, to Him belongs the creation and the command ; blessed is Allaah, Lord of the worlds. Al-A’raf 7:54
<ul><li>In the Arabic Bible , the name Allaah </li></ul><ul><li>is used to represent God the Creator. </li></ul>الله Genesis 1 The History of Creation 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep.

<ul><li>Allaah is the very same God of Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad (peace be upon them) and all the other prophets and messengers. </li></ul>- Christian and Jewish Arabs also use the name Allaah to refer to Almighty God.
Let there be no compulsion in religion: The right course has become clear from the wrong. Suratul Baqarah 2:256 Allaah tells us in the Qur’aan: لاَ إِكْرَاهَ فِي الدِّينِ قَد تَّبَيَّنَ الرُّشْدُ مِنَ الْغَيِّ
Muslims ruled Egypt, Palestine and Lebanon from the 8th century and sizeable Christian communities continued to exist over the past thirteen centuries. The areas conquered were put under Muslim administration and the populations were free to maintain their own beliefs.
The largest Muslim country in the world today is Indonesia , having over 200 million citizens, never saw a Muslim soldier. Islaam spread there and in Malaysia and Philippines by trade .

Islaam is the fastest growing religion in America today with anywhere between 300 and 500 reverts daily. This is taking place without any soldiers .
Only Allaah (The Creator) knows what is best for His creation. He sent down revelations and legislations in order to guide mankind to what would enable them to lead a happy and successful life, both in this world and in the hereafter.
Common sense and a careful analysis on the wisdom behind the various legislations would in itself explain why Allaah prohibited certain things.
Alcohol Gambling “ Red wine good for the heart? ” “ Easy money? ” Examples:

Indeed, association (with him) is great injustice." Surah Luqman 31:13

Make a distinction between the perfect teachings of Islaam vs what certain individuals do because of their shortcomings
سبحانك اللهم وبحمدك أشهد أن لا إله إلا أنت أستغفرك و أتوب إليك ‘ How perfect You are O Allaah, and I praise You. I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except You. I seek Your forgiveness and turn to You in repentance.’ Closing Supplication http://abumussab.webs.com/ http://www.youtube.com/AUMA08 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
