The Sour Sop or the fruit from the graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than Chemo.
Why are we not aware of this? Its because some big corporation want to make back their money spent on years of research by trying to make a synthetic version of it for sale.
So, since you know it now you can help a friend in need by letting him know or just drink some sour sop juice yourself as prevention from time to time. The taste is not bad after all. It’s completely natural and definitely has no side effects. If you have the space, plant one in your garden.
The other parts of the tree are also useful.
The next time you have a fruit juice, ask for a sour sop.
How many people died in vain while this billion-dollar drug maker concealed the secret of the miraculous Graviola tree? Read the rest of this entry

Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle (SallAllaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, “Our Lord, the… Blessed, the Superior, comes every night down on the nearest Heaven to us when the last third of the night remains, saying: “Is there anyone to invoke Me, so that I may respond to invocation? Is there anyone to ask Me, so that I may grant him his request? Is there anyone seeking My forgiveness, so that I may forgive him?”
May Allah grant us the ability to pray Tahajjud.
In the field of ‘Zoology’,
the Holy Qur’an says in Surah Anam, Ch. No. 6, Verse No 38, that… ‘We have created every living animal that lives on the earth and every bird that flies on the wings in the air, to live in communities like you’. Today science has discovered that even the animals and birds live in communities, like the human beings.
The Qur’an describes the flight of the bird in Surah Nahl, Ch. No. 16. Verse No 79… ‘Do you not look at the bird subjected in the midst in the air?’ None of them can hold them up except with the power of Allah (SWT)’. Read the rest of this entry
Assalamu AAalykum. Like everything, the present universe will also come to an end, and it is a part of our faith to believe in the Last Day. The signs of the Day of Judgment have been foretold by our Prophet (peace be upon him).
Ibn Kathir has collected all the prophesies of the Prophet (peace be upon him) in his book Al-Bidaayah wan-Nihaayah. In this volume, we have presented from them the signs of the Hour and the events that are yet to take place, although mentioning very few examples of those prophesies that have already been realized.

Fatwa from “Al-Masa’il ul-Mardiniyyah”
Translated by Abu `Abdullah Muhammad al-Jibali
May a father force his virgin daughter who attained puberty to marry? Two well-known opinions in this regard are reported from Ahmad:
That he may compel her. This is also the opinion of Malik, ash-Shafi`i, and others.
That he may not. This is also the opinion of Abu Hanifah and others, and is the correct one. Read the rest of this entry
The question of family planning and birth control was discussed in detail by the Majma al-Fiqh al-Islami. They had twenty three scholars research this topic and present their findings on this matter. The participants involved represented many different trends and schools of thought. Among the participants were Muhammad Ali al-Baar, Ali al-Salus, Muhammad Sa’id… Ramadan al-Buti, Abdullah al-Basam, Hasan Hathut and Muhammad Sayid Tantawi. Their proceedings, papers and discussions may be found in Part One of the Fifth Volume of Majallah Majma al-Fiqh al-Islami (1988/1409 A.H.). These proceedings are 748 pages all about the question of birth control and related issues.
The following are important points related to the issue of birth control in Islam. These were mentioned by some of the participants in the above program:
The institution of marriage and the want to have children was the custom of the best of creation, the Prophets and Messengers chosen by Allah. Allah says about them: Read the rest of this entry
Reliance on Allah, as mentioned in this Prophetic statement, is referred to in Arabic as tawakkul. It literally means to place one’s affairs in the hands of another.
There is a name of Allah associated with this word: al-Wakīl (the Disposer of Affairs). The Qur’ān refers to Allah by this name fourteen times.
For instance, it says: “Say: Allah is sufficient for us! Most Excellent is He in whom we trust as Disposer of our Affairs!” [Sūrah Āl `Imrān: 173]
Also: “Allah is sufficient as Disposer of Affairs.” [Sūrah al-Nisā’: 81] Read the rest of this entry
Abdullaah bin Salaam (RA) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (SAW) saying, “O people exchange greetings of peace, (i.e, say As-Saalamu’alaikum to one another), feed people, strengthen the ties of kinship, and be in prayer when others are asleep, you will enter Jannah in peace.”

Her name is said every day in prayer. She is the only woman whose name heads a chapter in the Quran. She is seen as a symbol of mediation between Christianity and Judaism and Islam. The year she gave birth is commemorated every time we mark a date.
Much theology is dedicated to explaining h…ow the mother of Jesus ought to be understood, but little is known about who she was in the first century. Lesley Hazleton of Seattle has written “Mary: A Flesh-and-Blood Biography of the Virgin Mother” to discern that life. Hazleton begins by calling her Maryam, the name that the teenage Palestinian girl who bore the baby Jesus would have recognized as her own.
Look at the real Middle Eastern story, Hazleton urges. Maryam lived in Nazareth, had dark hair and dark skin, spoke Aramaic, the language of “all the peoples, tribes, and nations living under the far-flung rule of the eastern Roman Empire,” and, according to the Roman Catholic Church, she was 13 when she gave birth to Jesus.

He is Abdullah Mohamed Ibn Idris Al Shafi’i, a prominent Imam who was a descendant from the Hashimi family of Quraysh tribe, which Prophet Mohamed (PBIUH) came from.
He is known as the revivalist of the second century, for he was the one who put the fundamental of jurisprudence; science of (usul al Fiqh).
At the age of 10, Al Shafi’i moth…er sent him to Mekkah, near his tribal ancestry. After entrusting him initially in the care of a relative, she followed him there to keep an eye on his studies. Read the rest of this entry
The name given to the child must be meaningful, lovely and good. On the Day of Resurrection, a person will be called by his name and the names of his parents. Therefore, a good name must be selected. (Abu Dawood) Allaah, the Exalted, likes best the names Abdullah and Abdur Rahman. (Sahih Muslim) Read the rest of this entry
Why should you, a young Muslim, be helping to bring your friends closer to Allah?
After all, you’ve got your own struggles to deal with: trying to explain why you pray to hostile teachers, Hijab discrimination, standing up in class when the professor attacks Islaam, dealing with parents who think you’ve gone nuts because you’re growing a beard, or all the other difficulties faced by a number of practicing Muslim youth?
Islaam was never meant to be an individualistic faith, reserved for the “chosen few”. Muslims have a duty to spread the Deen, and practicing Muslim youth, whether beginners, activists or leaders have a crucial role to play.
“Allah has put them in a position that perhaps no one else is in,” notes Sheema Khan, former Muslim Youth of North America (MYNA) advisor for eastern Canada. “They have the means to communicate with their peers, they have an understanding of what they’re going through plus they have the guidance of Islaam.”
Who is your childhood friend, who would rather spend Fridays at MacDonald’s than the Masjid, or your classmate who is Muslim in name and only knows that “Muslims don’t eat pork” going to listen to: the nice Imam of the Masjid who would freak out if he saw the way they were dressed and talked or you who may have grown up with them, joked with them, or see them everyday in school?
The answer is obvious: you. Read the rest of this entry
“Do not be impatient over the acceptance of Duas. In other words, don’t say: I’ve made Dua repeatedly but to no avail.”
[Bukhari & Muslim]
Anas bin Malik رضي الله ﺗﻌﺎﻟﯽٰعنه narrated,
“The Messenger of Allah صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said,
‘When one of you makes dua, he should be firm in his supplication and should not say,
“O ALLAH (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى), if You wish then grant me (my request),” for indeed, there is none who can compel Him.’“
This hadith is recorded by Imam Muslim in his Sahih, and he in fact has a whole chapter in his book dedicated to this topic. It indicates towards one of the etiquettes of making dua, which is to have a firm resolve when doing so and to have full trust in ALLAH (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى) that He will grant us our request. It teaches us that it is disliked to say things like “In-sha Allah” when making dua. Instead we should rather say “Aameen“.

Jerusalem is a city holy to the three largest monotheistic faiths – Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. Because of its history that spans thousands of years, it goes by many names: Jerusalem, al-Quds, Yerushaláyim, Aelia, and more, all reflecting its diverse heritage. It is a city that numerous Muslim prophets called home, from Sulayman and Dawood to Isa (Jesus), may Allah be pleased with them.
During the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ’s life, he made a miraculous journey in one night from Makkah to Jerusalem and then from Jerusalem to Heaven – the Isra’ and Mi’raj. During his life, however, Jerusalem never came under Muslim political control. That would change during the caliphate of Umar ibn al-Khattab, the second caliph of Islam.
During Muhammad ﷺ’s life, the Byzantine Empire made clear its desire to eliminate the new Muslim religion growing on its southern borders. The Expedition of Tabuk thus commenced in October 630, with Muhammad ﷺ leading an army of 30,000 people to the border with the Byzantine Empire. While no Byzantine army met the Muslims for a battle, the expedition marked the beginning of the Muslim-Byzantine Wars that would continue for decades.
During the rule of the caliph Abu Bakr from 632 to 634, no major offensives were taken into Byzantine land. It was during the caliphate of Umar ibn al-Khattab, that Muslims would begin to seriously expand northwards into the Byzantine realm. He sent some of the ablest Muslim generals, including Khalid ibn al-Walid and Amr ibn al-’As to fight the Byzantines. The decisive Battle of Yarmuk in 636 was a huge blow to Byzantine power in the region, leading to the fall of numerous cities throughout Syria such as Damascus.
In many cases, Muslim armies were welcomed by the local population – both Jews and Christians. The majority of the Christians of the region were Monophysites, who had a more monotheistic view of God that was similar to what the new Muslims were preaching. They welcomed Muslim rule over the area instead of the Byzantines, with whom they had many theological differences.

One of the most important differences between the Quran and the Bible is their attitude towards female inheritance of the property of a deceased relative. The Biblical attitude has been succinctly described by Rabbi Epstein: “The continuous and unbroken tradition since the Biblical days gives the female members of the household, wife and daughters…, no right of succession to the family estate. In the more primitive scheme of succession, the female members of the family were considered part of the estate and as remote from the legal personality of an heir as the slave. Whereas by Mosaic enactment the daughters were admitted to succession in the event of no male issue remained, the wife was not recognized as heir even in such conditions.” 44 Why were the female members of the family considered part of the family estate? Rabbi Epstein has the answer: “They are owned –before marriage, by the father; after marriage, by the husband.” 45 Read the rest of this entry
Praise to be Allah (God), the Lord of the worlds, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful! In sha’Allah (by the will of Allah (SWT)), in this article I’ll expose the hypocrisy of Islamic haters and debunks their false allegations against the noble character of al-habib (the beloved, may Allah’s (SWT) mercy and blessings be upon …him – Prophet Muhammad). Mocking, insulting, rejecting and accusing the Prophets (Peace be upon on them) is not new. It is an old habit of disbelievers. Allah (SWT) is telling Prophet (Peace be upon him) (interpretation of the meaning): “Mocked were (many) Messengers before thee; but the scoffers were hemmed in by the thing that they mocked” [6:10] and “And if they reject thee, so were messengers rejected before thee: to Allah go back for decision all affairs” [35:4] and “And if they reject thee, so did their predecessors, to whom came their messengers with Clear Signs, Scripture and the Book of Enlightenment” [35:25].

As Islaam spread northward into Syria, Egypt, and the Persian empire, it came face to face with the sciences of antiquity whose heritage had been preserved in centres which now became a part of the Islamic world. Alexandria had been a major centre of sciences and learning for centuries.
The Greek learning cultivated in Alexandria was opposed by the Byzantines who had burned its library long before the advent of Islaam. The tradition of Alexandrian learning did not die, however.
It was transferred to Antioch and from there farther east to such cities as Edessa by eastern Christians who stood in sharp opposition to Byzantium and wished to have their own independent centres of learning. Moreover, the Persian king, Shapur I, had established Jundishapur in Persia as a second great centre of learning matching Antioch. He even invited Indian physicians and mathematicians to teach in this major seat of learning, in addition to the Christian scholars who taught in Syriac as well as the Persians whose medium of instruction was Pahlavi.

By nature he was gentle and kind hearted, always inclined to be gracious and to overlook the faults of others. Politeness and courtesy, compassion and tenderness, simplicity and humility, sympathy and sincerity were some of the keynotes of his character. In the cause of right and justice he could be resolute and severe but more often than not, his severity was tempered with generosity. He had charming manners which won him the affection of his followers and secured their devotion. Though virtual king of Arabia and an apostle of Allah, he never assumed an air of superiority. Not that he had to conceal any such vein by practice and artifice: with fear of Allah, sincere humility was ingrained in his heart. He is my ideal, he is our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and I love him so much, but!!!! Read the rest of this entry
In Paul Williams’ debate with Rev Dr Steve Latham, Paul quoted verse 5:48 of The Majestic Qur’an (“TMQ“), as translated by Asad, in order to illustrate what the Qur’an claims of the position of previous scriptures:
And unto thee O Prophet have We vouchsafed this divine writ, setting forth the truth, confirming the truth of whatever there still remains of earlier revelations and determining what is true therein.
Judge, then, between the followers of earlier revelation in accordance with what God has bestowed from on high, and do not follow their errant views, forsaking the truth that has come unto thee.
This assertion was subsequently criticised by some fundamentalist Christians and the following arguments made:
1. that the Qur’an, which is described as musaddiq and muhaymin over previous scriptures, suggests that it protects previous scriptures from being lost or corrupted; and
2. that the words “whatever there still remains of earlier revelations and determining what is true therein” are an interpolation.
Paul asked me for my assessment of the translation in light of these criticisms, which is what follows. Read the rest of this entry
They have or…ganized a monthly “Neighbours Day,” where each Muslim would give a gift to a different neighbour to build bridges with their local community and introduce Islam. Bring this idea to your local Masjid!
Western governments and pundits ask Muslims to combat “Islamic extremism”, the first question that should be asked is ‘what is Islamic extremism? And what makes it a bad thing?’ These questions must be asked because the term ‘Islamic Extremism’ not only is attached to a negative preconception, but is used to refer to a reality and people which aren’t in truth ‘extreme’, this smacks of a prejudice unbefitting a society that believes that individuals and ideas are ‘innocent till proven guilty’.
Islam is a comprehensive way of life. It is an ideology that contains a specific viewpoint to life (the establishment of man’s purpose in life in the affairs of life) which forms an ideal and a basis for human society and whose solutions to human problems naturally and purposefully manifest themselves in the forms of Political, Economical, Ruling, Educational and Social systems as well as peoples universal rights.

The controversial and frank debate on whether European Human Rights can tolerate Sharia, religious conscience and religious practices of minorities living in the West can be seen here:
In case people were having problems viewing the debate video on my website, I’ve reposted this status with a link direct to youtube.
[Quran, 10 : 44]
It is Allaah who Guides and leads men from darkness to light through revelation and test , His bounty forgiveness mercy love and punishment is his to give he Alone is the Rabb , Who can hold back anything Allaah wills, he is the exalter of truth and the humiliator of lies,to him it will All be returned,
… Thy Lord is self-sufficient, full of Mercy: if it were His will, He could destroy you, and in your place appoint whom He will as your successors, even as He raised you up from the posterity of other people.
All that hath been promised unto you will come to pass: nor can ye frustrate it (in the least bit).
Say: “O my people! Do whatever ye can: I will do (my part): soon will ye know who it is whose end will be (best) in the Hereafter: certain it is that the wrong- doers will not prosper.”……
[Quran : 6 :133-135]
Reminder first to myself then to others,
اعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم بسم الله الرحمان الرحيم.
يَسْأَلُونَكَ مَاذَا يُنفِقُونَ ۖ قُلْ مَا أَنفَقْتُم مِّنْ خَيْرٍ فَلِلْوَالِدَيْنِ وَالْأَقْرَبِينَ وَالْيَتَامَىٰ وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ ۗ وَمَا تَفْعَلُوا مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ بِهِ عَلِيمٌ
They ask you, [O Muhammad Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam ], what they should spend. Say, “Whatever you spend of good is [to be] for parents and relatives and orphans and the needy and the traveler. And whatever you do of good – indeed, Allah is Knowing of it.”
Noble Quran 2:215
The evil of Shaytaan is limited to six categories, he continues [to assault] mankind until he succeeds in one or more of them:

In Sha Allah now you can download the Book Stories of the Prophets from the link provided below . In this book, the stories of the Prophets have been compiled from ‘Al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah’ (The Beginning and the End) which is a great work of the famous Muslim exegete and historian Ibn Kathir and has a prominent place in the Islamic literature.
The stories of the prophets and all the events in their lives have been supported by the Qur’anic Verses and the Sunnah (traditions) of the Prophet (Peace be upon him). Wherever it was necessary, other sources have also been reported for the sake of historical accounts, but on such places a comparative study has been made to prove the authenticity of the sources. Ibn Kathir has reproduced the views and interpretations of all the great exegetes of the Qur’an of his time. The systemic narratives of the Stories of the Prophets have been written in chronological order which.
