Mental Health & Our Community

Brother Faizaan looks at mental health issues in the Muslim community and how our ignorance on the matter is a danger for people suffering in silence.



Protecting Women Part Three

We looked at what the Holy Quran says about protection and rights of women. The question is whether these were ever implemented in practice. We look at the history women at the time of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s) to see how they were treated.



The Qadiani Deceipt

For long Qadianis have used an issue of the Paigham i Sulah from 1913 to try and convince people that Lahori-Ahmadis initially believed that Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was a prophet. It is true that a 1913 issue of the Paigham refers to Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as a nabi (prophet)! But the Ahmadiyya Anjuman Ishaat Islam was not created until 1914. So, how can we be responsible for a paper publishing something when we did not exist.



Protecting Women

For too long has the West lectured Muslims about women, their rights and the protection of their dignity. Here we look at the Quranic teaching and why it is necessary to protect women.

Why Twitter didn’t delete anti-Muslim tweets

Ivana Kottasová, reporting for CNN:

The anti-Muslim videos were first posted by Jayda Fransen, deputy leader of the far-right party Britain First. They depict violent assaults and the destruction of a statue of the Virgin Mary.

They also appear to violate the terms of use published by Twitter. It warns users: “You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.”

Asked why the original tweets have not been deleted, a Twitter spokesperson said:

“To help ensure people have an opportunity to see every side of an issue, there may be the rare occasion when we allow controversial content or behavior which may otherwise violate our rules to remain on our service because we believe there is a legitimate public interest in its availability.”

Translating the above PR jargon into English – Twitter are scared of losing Trump from their platform.

What is the ‘jihad’ against Trump?

Linda Sarsour asked people to join a ‘jihad’ against the US President Trump. She started by saying that when the Holy Prophet (s) was asked what is the greatest jihad, he responded by saying “It is to speak the truth in front of an unjust ruler”.

However, the right wing extremists have started a campaign saying that she is asking for a violent uprising against Mr Trump. Sadly, most non-Ahmadi friends do believe that jihad is a violent struggle but in response, much to our delight, have adopted that interpretation of jihad by the Holy Prophet (s) and espoused by Ahmadis.

Cut Off Their Hands – Part One

In the video above, we look at verses 5:33 and 5:38 where the Holy Quran commands that hands should be cut for certain crimes. But the translations of these verses always state “cut off”, instead of just cut.

With this in mind we consider alternative interpretations of the meanings of the Arabic words used in these verses.
