An open letter to the kuffar..

Since the last sermon by Sheikh Ilyas on the topic of Paradise, there has been quite a lot of open letter writing by our local kuffars disputing everything the sheik said. Its only expected that kuffar will do just that as Shaithaan has beautified them such acts and prompt him to to do his work all too often.

Now this is not to say that whatever that a sheikh utters is true or credible. Sheikh's are also human beings who err and are limited by human weaknesses. This goes the same for sheikhs as well as the kuffar. The distinction is here on the issue of belief which for the kuffar is always blind faith whatever amount of evidence is available, whilst for those who are not confined in their vision to an inner small circle in their minds, belief is a vast field. There are many descriptions of  Paradise in holy Quruan we Muslims believe on the authority of Allah Swt. The descriptions are explained in ways which we humans can understand as there are no exact similitudes of what is contained in hereafter here in earth. Earth is in between of everything that is in hereafter and there is no likeness of bliss of paradise here on earth as there is  no equivalence of misery of hell here on earth. We are humans and our minds can cope with intelligence that has existing forms stored in our memory to translate and evaluate it for us. That is why in the descriptions of provisions of paradise Allah (swt) mentions names of fragrances and precious, pearls and  qualities like youth, beauty immortality etc. Because these are qualities and and things that are generally associated with the best that we see here in earth.

The kuffar's attempt to sully even these blessings Allah(swt) has promised to the believers are ludicrous and here are some examples.

“I am a bit concerned about the anatomical composition of those houris. I mean ambergris is, after all, a discharge from the digestive system of the sperm whale; musk is a substance that comes from a gland close to the anus of a male deer and camphor is used to embalm the dead”


In response to this firstly I have to say that I am not at all impressed by the kuffars assumed  clean and scientific outlook. These kuffars who despise so much what is symbolic to mean fragrant smell shall take a close look at the substance they excrete once or twice daily and take a hint from it. However clean or scientific we are, we cannot still escape the biological laws of Allah who created us in the first place. What Allah(swt) alludes is that that houri's are beautiful and fragrant creation He created in a special way. Now always appearing to be on the scientific side (as if they created science!) these kuffars shall tell me they would rather choose a  foul smelling dung-created  creature  for their earthly rewards. They shall have it no doubt  but not in paradise, but in fire.

Turkish girl 'buried alive' in family garden

"A Turkish teenager found dead in a hole next to her house was probably buried alive, a post-mortem examination has revealed.
Medine Memi, 16, was found in the hole in December. Large amounts of soil were in her lungs and stomach, according to a source who has seen the report.
Her father and grandfather have been arrested, but not charged.
So-called "honour killings" take place every year in Turkey despite government moves to stamp out the practice". ... read the rest of the article here at BBC site.

These abominable crimes happen not because of our religion, but because we have abandoned Islam. What the people in the story did was what Islam came to stop which was burying children alive. These so called 'honor killings' are not a modern invention and was infact quite an ancient custom. Islam forbade this practice and laid strict conditions to distinguish between open lewdness and the cases where the weak were taken advantage of. In these cases of honour killings, its probable that the girl was taken advantage of by a youth or that an innocent chat or banter was simply misinterpreted to be something larger than life and whatever the causes maybe people are simply not allowed to take law on their hands. The killers of this girl should be sent swiftly to their Maker to settle the dispute with the girl. Her killers were certainly guilty of circumventing justice and taking the life of a human being without due judicial process.

The logic of green switchover

The US has for years tried to undercut the Oil producing countries in the middle east with measures such as influencing regional politics through supporting corrupt kingdoms and fiefdoms, planting a rogue state (Israel) among them etc etc.. However the world's dependence on oil is still great and the experiment of installing and supporting the only real terrorist country costs the USA lots of moral high ground and now they (the US) want finally to do something about it. Under this new drive, the US and their allies will try to change world's existing infrastructure from fossil fuel to any other form. First they played with bio-fuels which inflated food prices as farmers across the US switched to bio-fuel plants abandoning traditional food crops. Since that meant a sudden unanticipated market jitters, they are now focusing on other avenues like solar, and wind and other alternative means. The thinking is that whatever form of energy the world is going to use, they want to be the suppliers of that energy not some middle east or Latin American country. So this green push will benefit everyone including us but will benefit US more than others because they will be the prime suppliers and we will be the consumers. Because however hard we try we cannot match them in these technologies like turbines, solar etc..
