Girls prevented from wearing hajib in turkey

in the name of Allah most gracious most merciful

the best speech is the book of Allah and the best guidance is that of muhammed may Allah be pleased with him as to what follows

I was on line the other day and i came across a picture of some young muslim girls being pushed around by police . Some were hit , taken to the police station some were crying .

They were from turkey ............

Now i have many thoughts on the matter , i really not going to waste time to talk about the history of how turkey was one of the states formed @ the fall of the ottoman empire ( together with others like Greece ) or how they tried to " westernize " and basically ban islaam .

But i looking at the picture and wondering why is all the fuss about a little girl wanting to wear a piece of cloth on her head ? what is the ....... ( i looking 4 words here eh ) ahhhh , what u must show your manliness by beating down a little girl ? Is this what U R about ? Begging like a dog to get in to europe they dont want U , get it through your thick skulls they are racist , prejust bastards . Forget what they write about equality talk to your family in germany as how they are treated look @ the apartment building they burnt down turks inside ant all . take a hint .

I guessing this is properly a politically charged issue over there but take it some one from the out side it all really looks dumb . Now i live in a multicultural democracy and yes we are richer than you . But truth b told it's really not all that.

I like turkey i admire the turks . When i read about the things that you've done . The battles you forght the organization of your ottoman empire i feel proud to b muslim . I always wandered if i could marry a girl from the region . Bit discouraged when i saw turkish guys wrisle , do i really want brother in-laws that look like hulk ? I believe that you should b proud of who u are and proud to b muslim . Think about it look at how it was when U practiced your religion u had europe ( and much of the eastern Europe and middle east @ that ) at your feet . look at what happened when your islam wained your position started to fall . And look at how u are now u are running after europe and it is running away from U .

I still believe in my trukish brothers . I believe that some where under all that lays goodness . I hope it comes out sooner rather than later . I hope that the half of turkey that remain unconvinced eventually do give in . As for my brothers in the military u hold look @ what u were in islam ...... rule Europe don’t have them treating u like crap . raise your heads embrase your destiny fight 4 islam

may Allah grant U and me good if there was any good it was from Allah and any evil it was from me and the evil of my own soul may Allah forgive me

Form the Balkan Hoard my brothers join your brothers in bosnia .... but perhaps it is not the time for me to explain that here

To what degree is a Muslim to be concerned with politics today


To what degree is a Muslim to be concerned with politics today, within it's Islaamic guidelines?

If what is intended by "politics" is the administering of the ummah, then the reality is that politics is not from the acts of one individual from the people of the ummah, but rather, it is from the duties of the Muslim State. This is if the objective behind politics, as we stated before, is the administering of the ummah and the managing of its concerns in order to rectify what is in it from its religious and worldly affairs. So if this is what is intended by "politics", then this is fard kifaayah (a collective obligation). However, it is not for those people who are not in control of the state or of the rule, nor for those who can neither produce benefit nor cause harm.
As for obtaining the news to be aware of the state of affairs and the weakness the Muslims are in, and in order to avoid this outcome, then as we say, this is from the tasfiyah (purification) and the tarbiyah (educating) – purifying Islaam from what has entered into it and focusing on educating the Muslims and bringing them up on this purified Islam. So knowing these general circumstances, which encompass the Muslims, is a must for the matter is as the old Arab poet has stated, taking his meaning from an authentic hadeeth:"I learned evil not for the sake of evil, but to avoid it And whoever doesn't know good from evil, he will fall into it."

This is derived from a hadeeth – and I mean by it, the hadeeth of Hudhaifah Ibn Al-Yamaan, radyAllaahu 'anhumaa, which is reported in the Saheehs of Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim. He, radyAllaahu 'anhumaa, said: "The people used to ask Allaah's Messenger, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, about the good, but I used to ask him about the evil for fear of it reaching me." So being aware of what the Muslims are upon from humiliation and weakness in order to turn them away from that towards using the means of knowledge, strength and power, this is an obligation from the many obligations.

As for engaging at length in obtaining news, knowledge of battles and western politics, then this is from the aspect of: "Knowledge of something is better than being ignorant of it." This is something that we do not forsake. However, at the same time, we must not be very enthusiastic and fanatical about it. This is since the Prophet, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, did not establish the affair of his Companions on knowing and following precisely, the news of his enemies to the same extent as he, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, used to focus on teaching his Companions from one perspective and cultivating them on Allaah's command from another perspective. This is our belief concerning politics based on their two categories, which we have mentioned previously.

Al-Asaalah No. 18

Regarding the military coup against a ruler.

Is that which in present days is known as a "military coup" against the ruler, mentioned in the Religion or is it an innovation?

There is no basis for these actions in Islaam. And it is in opposition to the Islaamic methodology with regard to establishing the da'wah (Call to Islaam) and creating the right atmosphere for it. Rather, it is only an innovation introduced by the disbelievers, which has influenced some Muslims. This is what I stated in my notes and explanation to Al-'Aqeedah At-Tahaawiyyah.

think just 4 a what if this was a store

A store that sells husbands has just opened in New York City , where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates.

You may visit the store ONLY ONCE !

There are six floors and the attributes of the men increase as the shopper ascends the flights. There is, however, a catch . . .. you may choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a floor, but

you cannot go back down except to exit

the building!
So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.

On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men have jobs and fear their Lord.

The second floor sign reads:

Floor 2 - These men have jobs, fear their Lord, and love kids.

The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - These men have jobs, fear their lord, love kids, and are extremely good looking.

"WOW," she says, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love their Lord, love kids, are not bad for the eyes and help with the housework.

"Oh My Goodness, she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!"
Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads:

Floor 5 - These men have jobs, love their Lord, love kids, are good for the eyes, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 4,363,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store. Watch your step as you exit the building, and have a nice day!

Please send this to all your friends for a good laugh for those who can handle the truth!
