Islamic Quotations: Every breath of life is a precious jewel…

Imam Ghazali (rh) says:

It is incumbent on every person who believes in Allah and the Last Day that he should not be oblivious of auditing himself. Every breath of life is a precious jewel which can buy eternal treasures. Wasting these breaths or using them for detrimental purposes is such a great loss which no intelligent person could justify. When a person wakes up he tells himself that the only commodity he has is his life. When life perishes all his capital perishes. This is a new day that Allah has given as a further opporutnity to make amends. If He had taken his life away he would want to return for just a single day so that he could do good. So one should deem that one has died and has returned to the world for one more day. One should not waste these precious and invaluable jewels of life.

The day has twenty-four hours. One should strive today and not become lazy and lethargic lest one loses the ranks of the ‘Illiyeen’ (the highest rank of those in Paradise) and forever live in regret.

During (that stormy period) a man would be a believer in the morning and turn to disbelief in the evening, or he would be a believer in the evening and turn disbeliever in the morning, and would sell his Faith for worldly goods.” (Muslim)

Contentions by Abdal-Hakim Murad: Islam is the religion of women…

It is as fallacious to assert that Islam is unsuited to the age as it is to believe that the age is suited to Islam.

In the measure that we accept the Prayer it is accepted by God.

Islam is the religion of women because Madina had no place for Oedipus.

Bigotry and Ignorance of Islam

From Antiwar

by Charley Reese

President George Bush’s ignorance of the Middle East and its people is well-known. So also is his habit of parroting words and sentences given to him by other people. He hit a new low when he referred to “Islamic fascists.”

No two more opposite concepts are to be found. Fascism glorifies the nation-state; Islam is transnational. Fascism demands slavish devotion to a national leader; Muslims are far too independent-minded to be slavish followers of anybody. Virtually all the people Saddam Hussein murdered were people trying to overthrow him. Fascism is militaristic. Islam is not.
