  • Response to Jim Reed's Well Written Article
    My response to a viewpoint comment on the Jim Reed article - The revaluing of a society http://www.cbc.ca/news/viewpoint/vp_reed/20050727.html I have to say Mr. Reed's article was well researched and well thought out and is a nice balance compared to American biased media that attempts to paint today's conflicts as a black and white, west versus east or Islam versus the world picture which could not be further from the truth. I also agree with Mr. Zarnett an...
  • My response to a viewpoint article from Tom Velk on CBC
    My response to a viewpoint article from Tom Velk on CBC http://www.cbc.ca/news/viewpoint/vp_velk/20050805.html I agree that countries should not allow hate-mongering and other illegal activities from any people but to point the finger at every immigrant and belittle Islam while ignoring other forms of terrorism and the true causes is irresponsible and anti-Islamic in nature. Throughout the world, whether it be the news or on-line forums, people are quick to ...
  • Allah is GOD in "Aramaic", the language Jesus spoke
    Allah is GOD in "Aramaic", the language Jesus spoke With Ramadan around the corner (generally accepted as tomorrow if the new moon is sighted) I felt like doing some research and it turns out what my friend said is true (god is "Allah" in Armaic") and hopefully the Christians that knock on my door every few months will come back soon (although they promised to visit soon last time we spoke). It is a historical fact that Jesus spoke the "Aramaic" language so n...
  • Muslim men!
    Muslim men! By Tara Kasim, London I came to Vancouver to attend my cousins wedding. Shes married into an Indian Muslim family, we are a mixed bunch of people. During the wedding, we noticed some changes in my the in laws attitude. They were so nice and welcoming, but during the Nikkah ceremony and reception, we all felt the brush off. A couple of months later, my cousin called me in England, she was calling from her friends house in Surrey. She was crying madly, so much t...

  • The Christian Effect
    The Christian Effect Areeb Yasir Christian organizations are everywhere, helping and giving to the poor. They are in South Africa, India, Afghanistan, Mexio and Iran. They are everywhere, trying to help everyone. But what they are doing in exchange is preaching Christianity, encouraging Muslims and other believers from different faiths to become Christian. Of course, the main thing is that they are helping. How many Muslim organizations out there are there i...
  • For the Battered Woman in Islam
    For the Battered Woman in Islam: By Areeb Yasir You may already know this but choose to ignore it, but there are countless woman in the Muslim community who are being abused (physically and mentally) by their husbands each day. One in particular I know of, and even with her familys support, she stays with her husband; each night slipping closer to depression. A woman has the right to divorce. It is an ugly thing to say, but in many horrible situations where the hus...
  • Of Culture and Religion
    Of Culture and Religion By Areeb Yasir Vancouver The biggest challenge I faced when entering the Muslim religion, by my own accord; was the different cultures involved in the community. It would seem that Islam plays a back seat role to culture. In particular this is the most obvious in the Pakistani and Fijian communities. When I asked a question from one of the brothers pertaining to family life (in regards to if leaving them for 40 or more days for the sake of Jam...

    Facts About Islam

    The Same Religion As Abraham, Moses, and Jesus

    Muslims believe that Islam started long before the Prophet Muhammad's time and was the same religion taught by the previous religions and Prophets.

    Qur'an 42:13 The same religion has He established for you as that which He enjoined on Noah - the which We have sent by inspiration to thee - and that which We enjoined on Abraham, Moses, and Jesus: Namely, that ye should remain steadfast in religion, and make no divisions therein: to those who worship other things than Allah, hard is the (way) to which thou callest them. Allah chooses to Himself those whom He pleases, and guides to Himself those who turn (to Him).
