    Veil: the View From the Inside

    Published by Islam Awareness Centre on Monday, 17 October 2011
    Anyone whose sole source of knowledge about Islam has been the Western media, knows that Islam oppresses women. The hijab or veil, is the symbol of such oppression. To liberate Muslim women from such oppression has been the cherished goal of media pundits, Western experts on Islam, and the feminists.

    Last Sermon of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and salutations be upon him)

    Published by Islam Awareness Centre on Saturday, 15 October 2011
    After praising, and thanking Allah (The One True God) the Prophet began with the words:
    O People! lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore, listen carefully to what I am saying and Take These Words to Those Who Could Not Be Present Here Today.“O People! just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your LORD, and that he will indeed reckon your deeds.

    Was Islam spread by the sword ?

    Published by Islam Awareness Centre on Friday, 14 October 2011
    It is a common complaint among some non-Muslims that Islam would not have millions of adherents all over the world, if it had not been spread by the use of force. The following points will make it clear, that far from being spread by the sword, it was the inherent force of truth, reason and logic that was responsible for the rapid spread of Islam. 1. Islam means peace.Islam comes from the root word ‘salaam', which means peace. It also means submitting one's will to Allah (swt). Thus Islam is a religion of peace, which is acquired by submitting one's will to the will of the Supreme Creator, Allah (swt).

    What do Muslims think about Jesus (pbuh) ?

    Published by Islam Awareness Centre on Saturday, 8 October 2011
    Muslims love and respect Jesus.They consider him one of the greatest of God's prophets and messengers to humankind.A Muslim never refers to him simply as Jesus ,but always adds the phrase may peace and blessings of God be upon him .The Qur'an confirms his virgin birth,and a special chapter of the Qur'an describes the annunciation as follows:
     
    The Angels said, Oh Mary! God has chosen you,and purified you and chosen you above the women of all nations...' O Mary, God gives you good newsof a word from him, whose name is the Messiah,Jesus son of Mary,honored in this world and in the Hereafter,and one of those brought near to God.He shall speak to the people in infancy and in old age,shall be of the righteous.'She said ,'O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man has touched me?' He said:Even so, God creates what he wills.When He decrees a thing ,He says to it, Be! and it is. (Qur'aan 3:42,45-7)

    Why Islam is often misunderstood ?

    Published by Islam Awareness Centre on Friday, 23 September 2011
    In Today's turbulent world,Islam is often on the front page- mostly for the wrong reasons. Islam means Peace,yet some have taken this peaceful way of life and Hijacked it into a violent way and have distorted their ideology for personal and political gains.seeing a faith through explosive world events, and judging it by the actions of a misguided few,it is a primary reason why Islam is often misunderstood.
