“Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The example of His light is like a niche within which is a lamp, the lamp is within glass, the glass as if it were a pearly [white] star lit from [the oil of] a blessed olive tree, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil would almost glow even if untouched by fire. Light upon light. Allah guides to His light whom He wills. And Allah presents examples for the people, and Allah is Knowing of all things”. Surah Nur- Verse 35 #ramadan #ramadan2018 #ramadhan #instaramadan #instaphoto #instagramers
Jabir reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him said: “None of you will enter Paradise because of his good deeds alone. None would be rescued from the Hellfire, not even myself, except for the mercy of Allah”.(Muslim)
A’ishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) used to strive more in worship during Ramadan than he strove in any other time of the year; and he would devote himself more (in the worship of Allah) in the last ten nights of Ramadan than he did in earlier part of the month. (Muslim).
Data of millions of Facebook users has been used in election campaigns. Initially authorised only for research purposes, the data was then used without Facebooks authorisation and consent to target voters by understanding their concerns, interests, political opinions; information generated through each users Facebook feeds. Facebook could do nothing about it! The social media giant may present itself as a new way for people to voice themselves through its platforms. But the reality is that Democracy is organised and reserved for the ruling elite and in the process people are used as pawns to achieve specific political objectives. Do you trust the Democratic way with all its flaws?
Two YouTubers, @ksi and @joeweller, took their rivalry to the next level culminating into a boxing match which was streamed LIVE on YouTube. Thousands watched at the venue with supporters from both sides and over 21 million tuned in to watch the stream on both contestants YouTube channels with boxing commentary from other YouTubers. YouTube has created a new class of youth, using modern technology to drive masses to venture their ideas on their platform. Dedicated ‘Followers’ tune into the regular Vlogs with amazement and excitement each week to watch episodes where each time the boundaries are taken to the next level. The story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin couldn’t be so apt for this era where masses are led blindly to trivial pursuits. Allah Ta’ala reminds us in the Quran of the problematic nature of blind following. In Surah Al-Anam, Allah Almighty says “If you follow the majority of people on the earth, they will lead you astray from the path of God, for they follow only conjecture and surmise”. Islam gave us a clear vision of the pursuits which we should tread on: remembering the goal of this life and warning us not to become sheep. #KSI #joeweller #youtubers #life #happiness #instagram #instagramers #islam #chase #world #akhirah
The West argue that Islam has no real place in the modern world and it needs to readjust itself to fit in with its values. But, Islam is for all times, generations and places and nothing has been omitted from the Kitaab (Quran) that does not address contemporary and future issues. Islam addresses the individual and society with clear detailed rules that disciplined the world in the past and will do so once again, Bi’ithnilla. Muslims welcome the debate. #islam #kaaba #unity #instagram #instagood #instagramer
Bollywood woos Israel’s PM, Netenyahu, on his visit to India. Israel continues its international attempts to endorse its criminal and occupying regime through popular media, whilst reigning its terror on the Palestinians and the wider Middle East. "We believe in Bollywood. World loves Bollywood. Israel loves Bollywood. We want Bollywood in Israel. We are putting our money where our mouth is," Netanyahu said. Welcoming Netanyahu to India, Bachchan, one of India's most popular actors, said: "May cinema further fructify the strength of ties between India and Israel." A few Bollywood ‘celebrities’ critiqued the move. Filmmaker Anand Patwardhan, who was part of a "Netanyahu Go Back" protest in Mumbai on Thursday, told Al Jazeera "real India will remain the real friend of the real people of Palestine, be they Muslim, Christian or Jew". #bollywood #amitabhbachan #ashwariyarai #narendramodi #netenyahu #israel #india #sponsoringterrorism #palestine #muslim #muslimummah #islam #instagram
Turkish PM, Erdogan, the master of disguise, continues to dupe the Ummah by playing his usual double game in a bid to sustain power. He praises Ataturk, the destroyer of Muslim unity; the one who banned the wearing of the Hijab, the one who banned the Azan, the one who changed the education curriculum to imitate the West, the one who banned the imama (male headgear) of the learned people and the one who colluded with the British to destroy the Khilafah state. “We consider it a duty to give Ataturk due credit as the commander-in-chief of our Independence War and the founder of our Republic, in front of our nation. Our nation’s respect for Ataturk is eternal.” “There is nothing more natural than respect for a name [Ataturk] who was the leader of such a struggle to have a valuable place in the nation’s hearts.” SOURCE: Hurriyet Daily, October 2017 #erdogan #turkey #mustafakemalinaskerleriyiz #istanbul #islam #khilafah #instagram #instagramer #instagrammer #instadaily
Donald Trump tweeted “The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!” A sincere Islamic leadership, the upcoming Khilafah, will respond to you Trump by ejecting all American influence in Pakistan: Political, Economic and Military. #Pakistan #Trump #americanhorrorstory #waronterror #islamabad #muslims #muslimummah #khilafah #trueleaders #trueleadership #instagram #instagrammers #instagramers #instapolitics
