One of the concerning matters which have now come about (last 5-10 years), is the matter of Muslims leaving populations of people and establishing their own little villages, where there are 10-15 houses and they are completely isolated from the people and the jamaah of the Muslim body.
Many times when asked why do you do such and such act, they will reply we are trying to salvage our emaan by moving away from the sinners and their like. This practice has become so common in Bosnia, that there are now multiple villages where only people of a certain manhaj live. Now from a distance one may say, there is nothing wrong here, they have seperated themselves from the Dhalimeen and the Kufar, but here is where the problem starts, because they have also seperated themselves from the Muslimeen.
And in many cases the owners of these houses live in the west, living in the lands of the Kufar and paying taxes in the lands of the Kufar, enjoying satellite TV, fast internet and all the latest gadgets, but when they come to Bosnia on a holiday, they proudly live in a Shari Village, with no electricity or internet access, but only for a few weeks. … More SHARI VILLAGES AND LEAVING THE MAIN BODY OF MUSLIMS – WE MUST MIX WITH THE PEOPLE – ARE SHARI VILLAGES A REALITY?
Allaah has commanded us to worship Him. But some might ask: Why can`t I worship Him as a Jew, or a Christian, or Hindu or a Sikh? Why can`t I worship Him according to my own personal preference?
“Verily, the Religion with Allaah is Islaam: Nor did the People of the Book dissent therefrom except due to envy of each other, after knowledge had come to them. But if any deny the Signs of Allaah, Allaah is swift in calling them to account” (Soorah 3:85)

In Islam, we should not be satisfied with performing only the basics of Islam. The basics of Islam, its pillars, are the foundation of this religion and the very beginning of our spiritual journey. The end goal of a Muslim in this life is to increase in obedience and righteousness until we become the intimate friends of Allah and we perform His will in all of our actions. The end goal should be IHSAN. … More IHSAN – BEING A MUHSIN – THE NEXT LEVEL MUSLIM – HOW WE PERFECT OUR ISLAM?

One more blessing of Ramadan – Ramadan is the month that when you perfect your fasting in it, you may enter Jannah by a special door. It is a special door set aside for those who fast. The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said: In Jannah there is a special door called Ar-Rayyan. And Ar-Rayyan means ‘that which will give you lots of water’. So it is called ‘that which will give you water’ because the way to get to it is to deprive yourself of water. How so? … More RAMADHAN – رمضان – KHUTBAH – THE THREE WAYS TO HAVE ALL OUR SINS FORGIVEN

The scholars, may Allaah have mercy on them, have mentioned in their chapters on the “Ruling of the Apostate”, that a Muslim may apostate from his Religion through various types of Nullifiers (of Faith), which cause his life and wealth to become permissible (as it has come in sahih hadith and clear ayat) and which causes him to leave from the fold of Islaam.
And from the most dangerous amongst them and those that occur most often are ten nullifiers that we will mention to you in the following lines, in a summarized manner, so that you may beware of them and warn others about them, hoping that Allaah will protect and safeguard us from them. We will also mention a few short clarifications after them. … More TEN NULLIFIERS OF ISLAM – IBN BAZ – NAWAQID AL ASHAR – نواقض اسلام
