Compiled by Reem Rahman A couple months ago, Imam Suhaib posted a question on Facebook asking how to encourage one’s child to pray. Alhamdullilah (praise be to God), there were many great responses. We wanted to share some of the wonderful advice and stories shared by fellow readers.
We started up in 2002 with a simple question - how could we teach you Islam in a way that was fun, social, spiritual, and oh yeah, academic? We asked around, and it turned out people wanted teachers who knew their stuff, but didn't turn learning Islam into a snoozefest, and they didn't want endless weeks of lectures. We listened, and built AlMaghrib around engaging instructors, double- and single-weekend seminars, and professional multimedia materials. Since that time, you've responded in large numbers, asking us to establish chapters (also known as Qabeelahs) in cities worldwide, and we've taught Islamic Sciences to over 33,000 students who just can't get enough. With the blessings of Allah ( ) , AlMaghrib is now the leading Islamic Institute in the West teaching premiere Islamic education to the largest Islamic Sciences student body.
Apa yang sebenarnya sedang berlaku di Timur Tengah hari ini? Kenapa anak-anak muda di negara negara Arab bangun melawan dan menjatuhkan ketua dan kepala negara mereka? Para pembaca yang budiman – kita jangan tersalah baca dan tersalah tafsir. Semua ini berlaku kerana wujudnya hukum-hukum sosial dan syarat-syarat politik yang telah dan sedang memangkin berjuta juta rakyat Arab untuk bangun menunjuk perasaan dan menghumbankan kepala-kepala negara mereka.
Dengan nama Allah yang Maha Pengasih lagi Maha Penyayang.. " Berikanku sepuluh orang pemuda, maka akan ku goncangkan dunia.. " – [Presiden Pertama Indonesia, Bung Sukarno] PEMUDA.. itulah kuasa seorang PEMUDA. Mereka bukan seperti pemuda biasa-biasa, bukan juga lelaki dalam kebanyakan manusia, tetapi merekalah PEMUDA harapan BANGSA, RIJAL impian AGAMA.. " Harapanku ialah agar rumah ini penuh dengan lelaki-lelaki seperti Abu 'Ubaydah ibn al-Jarrah, Muaz ibn Jabal dan Salim budak suruhan Abu Huzaifah, agar mereka semua dapat digunakan bagi meninggikan kalimah Allah!!
When I was young, I had no patience. I wanted everything, and I wanted it now. No wonder, then, that I found myself with over $20,000 in credit-card debt just a few years out of college. I was spending to obtain a lifestyle that I wouldn’t be able to afford until I was older. Much older.
Western Cultures Are Far More Humane Than the Bloodthirsty Muslims Even before the whole terrorism thing, Islam had a reputation in the West for violence. Part of it has to do with how abruptly Islam was all up in everyone's face. For instance, while Hinduism took about 1,000 years to spread through India, and Christianity took about 400 years to go from persecuted cult to the state religion of the Roman Empire, Islam went from one guy's epiphany to the dominant political and religious force in the Middle East and North Africa in about 100 years . So a lot of people have reached the conclusion that the religion spread like holy wildfire for one reason: the sword.
