  3. Summary: I could have written a long article but don't really have a lot to say...
  4. Summary: The simplest and common sense response to those who advocate eating at KFC, McDonalds is to submit to them that the religion of those slaughtered the meat is neither recorded nor tracked in the West. When you visit KFC the Chicken could have been slaughtered by a Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Jew or Atheist so do discuss the issue of meat slaughtered by Ahlul-Kitaab (People of the Book) is not established. The proponents are then left with no choice but to “bend the reality” and make a broad assumption that since America (or any other country) is Christian then let’s assume that the slaughterer MUST ALSO be a Christian (or a Jew). This is a logical fallacy apparent to anyone who lives in the West: 1 Does everybody who works with you Jew or Christian? 2 Does your employer even record the religion of the people working with you? 3 Does your country even require a column on the employment application to record your religion? The Shariah aspects of the matter are discussed at length in the article below and the book of Shaykh (Mufti) Taqi Usmani (HA) containing his findings presented to Islamic Scholars of the world at Islamic Fiqh Academy (Jeddah) is also enclosed at the bottom. http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/General-Fiqh/meat-of-ahlul-kitaab-people-of-the-book.html
  5. It is not for us to advise you as to which party you should vote for! However, with the best interest of Islam and Muslims at heart we say that there is a lot at stake for you, your family and friends in the upcoming British elections. Your Mosque and its Parking, the education of your children at School (Islamic, public or private), funding for exclusive (women only) programs for your mothers, sisters and daughters) or how you get treated by your local Doctor or NHS Hospital is all at stake. It’s your choice should you chose to ignore all of the above OR try to prevent the next Islamophobe from holding your community hostage. We realise that Muslims face a diverse situation and multitude of options therefore this article is broken down into 4 constituent parts as we explore the various opinions held by Muslims with regards to voting as follows: Is voting really Haram? How to choose one of the big Parties as a Muslim? What is tactical voting and should you vote Tactically? The futility of democratic elections should you chose not to vote at all!

  9. Shaykh (Maulana) Muhammed Qamaruzzaman Allahbadi (HA) Hazrat Maulana Qamruzzaman Illahabadi (DB) of India from Allahabad. He is connected through the Khalifa of Hakeemul Ummat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (RA), Hazrat Shah Wasiullah Sb. (R.A), of Allahabad. Maulana Muhammad Qamaruzzaman Allahabadi (DB) is one of the most reputed scholars, teachers and eminent spiritual mentors of Muslim India. The Maulana is held in high veneration by the entire Muslim India, African countries, Canada, Britain and America. Born in 1933, he received his primary and secondary education at Karisath of Mau district, U.P. (India), and pursued his higher Arabic and religious knowledge, endowing all his best capabilities for this noble goal. He was fortunate enough to attract a great Divine favor upon himself. It was his attachment with a very eminent man of spirituality, the late Maulana Shah Wasiullah Allahabadi, a very high profile Khalifa of Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanawi. Thanks to his inner capabilities and a true thirst for spiritual perfection, the Maulana soon attracted great deal of Maulana Allahabadi's attention, so much so that he gave his daughter in his marriage in 1951. Then the Maulana completed his higher religious studies under the Shah's direct teachership. Maulana Muhammad Qamaruzzaman is devotedly engaged in the service of Islamic knowledge , social reform, Dawah and spiritual upbringing of the Ummah. Tens of thousands of Muslims are attached to him, seeking their spiritual upliftment. An excellent treatise on the diseases and of the heart and their rectification. http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Soul/purification-heart.html
  10. All Changes made apart from changing the verse to Qur'aan made Easy because the book actually has these convulated translations and weird spellings from Raiwind. One option is to change all translation to Mufti Taqi Usmani (HA) edition and we may do that in the future but until then left with the (print) book format. The grammatical errors and skipped words are also like that in the print edition but changed as they may reading easier. Jazakallahu Khayran
  11. Compiled by Shaykh Dr Seventy-Six (HA) Physician (MD,Internal medicine), Spiritual seeker, Antiquarian of Islamic manuscripts. Summarising the Problem: Dr Bruce Hubbard (PhD) Conceptualises the problem as follows: Worry? Worry is an anxious preoccupation with an anticipated negative event. Over the course of evolution, worry helped us adapt by directing awareness to true problems that once identified can be effectively addressed. In this way worry is effective in managing challenges of your everyday life. Unhealthy Worry? For some people, this process breaks down. Their minds become trapped in a endless process of “figuring it out.” They are plagued by thoughts and images of disastrous outcomes that in reality may never come to be. Worriers are particularly challenged by problems that have no clear solution. Instead of accepting and managing these difficult realities, they are viewed as evidence of the futility of even trying to work things out. Obsessive Thinking? Obsessive Thinking Unhealthy worry is part of a broader problem called obsessive thinking. Obsessive thinking is an inability to gain control over recurrent, distressing thoughts, images. These thoughts and images are embedded in a complex network of feelings, sensations, and at times, behavioral rituals and routines. Rumination? Obsessive worry is focused on future outcomes. Rumination, another form of obsessive thinking, is the uncontrollable preoccupation with the past. Rumination is experienced as guilt, regret and anger, over perceived mistakes, losses, slights, actions taken or not taken, opportunities forever lost, with irreversible, catastrophic results. And Islam says? Do you suffer from any of these or recognise someone who does? Modern Psychology proposes to address the thought pattern of such a patient but the Prophet of Allah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) offers a different diagnosis summarised in the following beautiful Hadeeth: أَلاَ وَإِنَّ فِي الْجَسَدِ مُضْغَةً إِذَا صَلَحَتْ صَلَحَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ، وَإِذَا فَسَدَتْ فَسَدَ الْجَسَدُ كُلُّهُ‏.‏ أَلاَ وَهِيَ الْقَلْبُ Beware! There is a piece of flesh in the body if it becomes good (reformed) the whole body becomes good but if it gets spoilt the whole body gets spoilt and that is the heart. Join us on an epic journey to explore, decode and ultimately control your (obsessive, runaway) mind by focusing your heart! http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Soul/wuqoofqalbi.html
  12. Khala, Changed to: The Creator of the universe, Allah (SWT) remains committed that kingdom and His Khilafah[1] on earth are only meant for the true Muslims, (Mumineen i.e. those of perfect Imaan). This is clear from the following Ayah: Allah (SWT) has promised to those from amongst you who believe and do righteous deeds that He would surely make them His Caliph on earth [surah Al-Noor:55]. [1] Rule and soverigenity of Allah (SWT) What is wrong with this line? The Muslim youth of the new generation, which have been affected and influenced by the so-called modern trends or the Western way of life, take pleasure in laughing at the very ideals of Islam and openly criticize the sacred code of Shariah Rest corrected.

  15. Assignment 1: Muslim Degeneration & Its only Remedy We scan these books and then convert the images to text. Despite using the best of technologies errors often creep up for example a scanner has difficulty telling a I (small case i) from L (small case l) i.e Allah often looks like Aiiah to a scanner. Please read the book below and inform us of the errors in the thread which follows: http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Hadeeth/muslim-degeneration-its-only-remedy.html If you are not sure please report the problem because we can compare it to the original book and verify .
  16. Proof reading of the translation done by Maulana Yusuf Shabbir (HA), ready for distribution.
  17. Please don't copy/paste the article as it is being proof read and checked by others such as the son of Shaykh (Mufti) Shabbir Ahmed (HA) of Darul-uloom Bury. Simply read and point out any errors.
  18. Conclusions: 18 degrees should be adopted for Subh Sadiq (true dawn)i.e. commencement of fasting and Faj'r Salah. When 18 degrees is not present, Aqrabul Ayyam (nearest day), Aqrabul Bilaad (nearest city) or Nisf ul Lail (half of night) should be adopted. Using Sab’al Layl or 1/7th of the night is a manifest error.

  19. Asslamo Allaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, وَمِنۡ ءَايَـٰتِهِ ٱلَّيۡلُ وَٱلنَّهَارُ وَٱلشَّمۡسُ وَٱلۡقَمَرُ‌ۚ لَا تَسۡجُدُواْ لِلشَّمۡسِ وَلَا لِلۡقَمَرِ وَٱسۡجُدُواْ لِلَّهِ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَهُنَّ إِن ڪُنتُمۡ إِيَّاهُ تَعۡبُدُونَ [41:37] Among His signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Do not prostrate yourselves to the sun, or to the moon. And prostrate yourselves to Allah who has created them, if it is Him whom you worship.

  21. Research of Darul-uloom Bury about reciting loudly in Salah added to the article: http://www.central-mosque.com/index.php/Civil/eclipses.html
  22. Sorry Khala, Didn't know the rules BUT that is a problem because article and blogs get updated and reproducing them on a different site is not advised because then the copies get out of synch. In this example I just learned that he was also a Hafiz of Qur'aan which I didn't know when I posted the link. Do you see what I am saying?
