hell forever?

 

How is it that Allah, the Compassionate and Merciful, punishes us for a transgression committed in a moment of finite time, with eternal and infinite torment - "In Hell they will dwell forever"? Who are we and what is our worth in comparison to Allah's  greatness to deserve such vengeance?

 

homosexuality

 

In Islam Homosexuality is regarded as a perverted act, a reversal of the natural order, a corruption of man’s sexuality, and a crime against the rights of women. The spread of this depraved practice in a society disrupts its natural life pattern and makes those who practice it slaves to their lusts, depriving them of decent taste, decent morals, and a decent manner of living.

We are living in a world where there is very little peace. Similarly we are living in a world where there is very little justice. These two issues peace and justice are symbiotic. This link is logical as justice must be considered one of the indispensable prerequisites of any enduring peace.

“Actions are judged by intentions.” There is hardly a Muslim who has never heard this hadiith. Unfortunately we have not done much to understand its implications and let that understanding inform our actions.

 

 

intolerance in the west

Since the beginning, Europe has always regarded Islam with fear, suspicion, and hostility...this primarily a product of ignorance, arrogance and racism.
