Muhammad (saw)

Assalaamualaikum wr wb sisters,

I found this online, isn’t it awesome?

Bismillah , Al-Hamdulillah , WasSalaatu WasSalaamu Alaa Rasoolillah!
Assalaam O Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabrakatuhu!

*!!* Muhammad SAW…An extraordinary tolerance model *!!*

Have you ever been offended?
Have you ever felt persecution or oppression?
Tell me – if you have – how do feel about your oppressor and those who offend you?

Tell me what you are to do, if you have the chance to take revenge? 

While you think about the answer, I will tell you a story. 1400 years ago, an Arab man started his call to Allah, the Lord of this universe. He was sent by Allah to lead atheists to monotheism, but really, it was a very hard mission.

Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was faced with all kinds of harm and persecution even from his relatives.

His uncle Abu Lahab and his wife Umm Jameel came on the top of the list. They used to insult him and arouse suspicions about the honesty of his call. Moreover, Umm Jameel used to throw thorns in his way.

The atheists of Quraish used to throw garbage on his body while he was praying. The prophet’s daughterFatema usually removed this garbage. 
They started to torture his weak followers using all possible techniques! They put bani Hashim and bani Abd El- Mottalib under siege and decided to boycott them totally.

The prophet and his followers were about to starve.
The atheists of Quraish also, claimed that he was no more than a mad man, a magician or a poet who had a great influence on those who listened to him.

Regardless of all of this, he used to pray for them and ask Allah to forgive them and lead them to the right path, as they did not know it!

Moreover, when prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, entered Mecca and the atheists surrendered almost without any fight, they were captivated. Imagine what he did…he set them free and did not think of revenge for what they did in the past!

This is the real tolerant face of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

The Jewish man
Prophet Muhammad had a Jewish neighbour who used to throw garbage and dead animals in his way every day when he came out of his house. This man was absent for a while. Prophet Muhammad decided to pass by his house and ask about him. He found him ill and accordingly paid him a visit!

Face to face with Hend!
After he returned to Mecca victoriously, men and women came to pledge him. Hend the daughter of O’tba was among those women, but she was disguised. She was afraid of the prophet’s revenge for what she did after Ohod. She had taken Hamza’s liver (Hamza is the prophet’s uncle) out of his dead body and chewed it! In addition, she, along with others, cut parts of the Muslim martyrs’ bodies and used them as earrings and accessories!

For all of this and for having a long history of enmity with the prophet and his followers, she expected that if he recognized her, he would kill her. The prophet actually, recognized her from her speech, but he smiled and forgave her instead!

They were afraid of Omar!
A number of women gathered and agreed to meet prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. They talked to him and argued with loud voices, but when Omar ibn Al-Khattab came, they hided from him. The prophet laughed. Omar asked him about the reason why he did, he told him what had been going on before his arrival. Omar got angry with those women and blamed them. They told him that he was much harsher than the prophet was, that was why they were not afraid of the prophet, but were afraid from Omar!

Who protects you from me?
Aouf ibn Al-Hareth fought against Muslims. He surprised everyone when he reached the prophet, peace be upon him, and threatened him with his sword asking him: “who protects you from me?” the prophet answered “Allah.” The sword fell from Aouf’s hand and the prophet took it. It was his turn to ask Aouf: “who protects you from me?” Aouf asked him for forgiveness. The prophet asked if he would embrace Islam, Aouf answered that he would not, but he would not fight Muslims after then. The prophet set him free. When Aouf returned to his people, he told them that he came to them after meeting the best man on earth!

Isn’t he a human being?!
A funeral passed by the prophet and some of his companions. He stood in his place and overawed. His companions got surprised, as it was the funeral of a Jew.
The prophet asked: “isn’t he a human being?!”
These are a few examples of Prophet Muhammad’s tolerance. His life was full of tolerant stands. May Allah send His peace and blessings on him.

Assalaamualaikum wr wb sisters,

Hey, if there’s anyone that reverted to Islam, I’d really appreciate it if you told me your story. Or even if it’s a story of someone you know that reverted. The best story of reverting to Islam that I’ve heard is Yusha Evans’ story. Subhanallah, it was so amazing! 😀 So you can either email me: islamstruepath@gmail.com or comment below. Thanks!!! 🙂

Assalaamualaikum wr wb sisters,

I think we all know the story of Adam and Eve, is that right? Well if you don’t, I’ll just briefly tell you what happened: Adam and Eve were in Paradise doing as they pleased. Allah told them they can eat every fruit except fruit from one tree. Satan came and told them lies and stuffs and persuaded them to eat from that tree. Adam and Eve then realized their sin and repented. Allah accepted their repentance. Well at least that is the story that we Muslims believe. I think it’s a bit different in Christianity….

But here comes the difference between Islam and Christianity.

“The woman you put here with me she gave me some fruit from the tree and I ate it.” Consequently, God said to Eve:

” I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband and he will rule over you.”

To Adam He said:

“Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree …. Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life…”

Genesis 2:4-3:24

You see, in Christianity, it is truly kinda against womens rights, don’t you think? It seems like (in Christianity) that Allah only blamed Eve? Only the woman? When Adam also ate the fruit? I mean HE MADE THE CHOICE to eat it too. So it’s both their faults. So why you only blaming it on the woman?

Anyways but in Islam, it is believed it was both their faults. ‘Coz both of them got minds and both of them can make their own decisions, you know what I’m saying?

In the Qur’an, everyone has to take blame for their OWN sins:

“That no burdened person (with sins) shall bear the burden (sins) of another. And that man can have nothing but what he does (of good and bad). And that his deeds will be seen, Then he will be recompensed with a full and the best recompense [fair] ” (Quran 53:38-41)

 

 

 

Well yeah I hope you guys got the point. No hate intended towards anyone! Jazakallahu khayran and forgive me if I offended you in any way because I assure you it was not intentional.

 

~Just the truth, with evidence.~

BTW: Don’t you think the Aurora Borealis is so awesome?! It’s soo omg!! 😀 Amazing, mashallah!

Assalaamualaikum wr wb sisters,

What is this religion that’s all over TV, accused of having terrorists followers? Is this true or false? Or is Islam a peaceful religion? They say salaam to each other everyday they meet each other which means peace be upon you. Wouldn’t you call that peaceful?

Find out for sure what Islam really is about. Why not read the holy book for Muslims which is called the Qur’an. You can get a free English translation anywhere all over the Internet. I’ll help you out by giving one site: http://quran.com/

Why don’t you see for yourself what this religion is really about? It might have the answer to all your conflicts. How come so many people convert to Islam everyday!?

Check out this story, my favorite convert story: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYMKQKSV0bY

Another useful site: http://www.islam-guide.com/

I say check out this religion! Aren’t you curious?! By all means, if you don’t like this religion after a lot of research on it you don’t have to.  But I doubt that will happen… 😛 Islam is too beautiful for anyone to dislike/ hate it… Unless they’re ignorant about it.

Thanks! 🙂
