About Us

The Muslim Times is promoting universal brotherhood and sisterhood in a world, which is divided by nationalism, religion, race, social class, gender and last but not the least, obfuscation created by illegitimate use of reductionism of science, taking away a wholesome understanding.

Yes, we do stand for gender equality and constantly strive for the Muslim women’s rights.

The Muslim Times is bringing out the urgently needed Separation of Mosque-Church and State in every country of our Global Village.

Sixty different editors of the Muslim Times are collecting the beautiful and the fragrant flowers, created by the international media, into an appealing bouquet every day.

We are promoting Islam for personal and spiritual life and secularism and Western democracy for public life.

We want to applaud the good writings of all the Muslims, the Christians, the Jews, the agnostics and the atheists and others, by sharing them with our readers.

We are also embedding a couple of our important tweets in this page:


The Muslim Times is a non-sectarian publication and has the best collection to overcome sectarian divide among the Muslims.

The Muslim Times presents the peaceful image of Islam and aims to refute Islamophobia on one hand and Islamomania of short sighted Muslim fundamentalists, on the other. It tries to aggregate all positive activities in all the Muslim communities, irrespective of the sect, to bring out what Islam can contribute to our contemporary society, our Global Village.


What is the purpose of our universe? What is the relationship between science and religion? In addition to this and related questions, the Muslim Times frequently examines the roots of the Abrahamic and other faiths and whether they can coexist. All these and many other issues are the focus of the Muslim Times.

The Muslim Times is the place, where you want to be, for it does not indulge in hedonistic pleasures, by avoiding obscene and frivolous.

The Muslim Times is providing a forum, for open and peaceful dialogue between the Muslims and the Christians on one hand and the Muslims and the agnostics and other religions, on the other. It is also catering to a dialogue between the Ahmadi Muslims and moderate non-Ahmadi Muslims, without falling prey to human vulnerability to stereotype and lump everyone, in the opposite camp, in a group together. We want to distinguish between the moderate Muslims from different sects and the extremists.

Over the years, we believe, we have made a wonderful collection to promote the Muslim heritage, secularism, free speech, human rights and women rights and to refute Islamophobia and racism.

Terrorism has to be defeated not only militarily and tactically but also intellectually and theologically and the Muslim Times is doing it for you.



We want to remain humble and keep our voices gentle and our attitude friendly, as the Holy Quran reminds us:

Allah likes not the uttering of unseemly speech in public, except on the part of one who is being wronged. Indeed, Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.  (Al Quran 4:149)

Call unto the way of thy Lord with wisdom and goodly exhortation, and argue with them in a way that is best. Surely, thy Lord knows best who has strayed from His way; and He knows those who are rightly guided.    (Al Quran 16:126)

We may not always rise to all our aspirations, but, we certainly try.

The holy prophet Muhammad, may peace be on him, said that a word of wisdom is the lost property of a believer, he or she accepts it wherever he or she finds it. So, our Muslim readers have no choice but to benefit from whatever useful and correct information we provide, regardless of the religion, race, gender or social status of the author. The pertinent Hadith is the last in this collection of forty Hadiths: Forty Gems of Beauty. We hope that the non-Muslim readers will also find this advice particularly useful.

The Muslim Times: A Relatively Silent Revolution of Knowledge and Compassion

    Hanukah is for Muslim Jews for two reasons, One is because Hanukah (Hebrew for faithful dedication-Islam) refers to the rededication of the ancient Temple in Jerusalem after it was profaned in 168 BCE by an idol installed in it by the Syrian Greek king Antiochus IV.

    The second reason is because Hanukah also refers to the dedication and valor of the Maccabees and all those who joined them in their resistance to the attempt by the ruling powers to force the Jews to abandon their God given religion, and conform to Greek forms of worship and culture (abandoning circumcision for example).

    Those who resisted were Muslims (Arabic for faithful follows of God’s will) and their dedication eventually led to religious freedom and national independence for the Jews living in the Land of Israel.

    The oppression of Judaism by Antiochus IV, the Syrian Greek king, was the first known attempt at suppressing a minority religion, but unfortunately not the last. Other well known attempts were the three century long Roman persecution of Christianity, and the persecution of Muhammad and his followers by the majority of pagan Arabs in Makka.

    All three religions emerged from their varying periods of persecution stronger than ever, and this is the ongoing spiritual lesson of the Hanukah lamp that once lit by faithful believers, filled with hope and trust in God; lasts longer than anyone else thinks possible.

    The history: In 200 BCE, King Antiochus III of Syria defeated Egypt and made the Land of Israel a part of the Seleucid Empire. King Antiochus III wanting to conciliate his new Jewish subjects guaranteed their right to “live according to their ancestral customs” and to continue to practice their religion in the Temple of Jerusalem.

    However in 175 BCE, his son Antiochus IV invaded Judea to put in power a pro Syrian high Priest. As the ancient Jewish historian Josephus relates, “The king came upon the Jews with a great army, took their city by force, slew a great multitude of those that favored Egypt, and sent out his soldiers to plunder them without mercy.

    He also spoiled the temple (erecting an idol in it that looked like himself, and thus) put a stop to the daily offerings (to God) for three years and six months.”

    The tradition: When the Temple in Jerusalem was looted and services stopped, Judaism was outlawed. In 167 BCE Antiochus IV (who named himself ‘Manifest God’) ordered an altar to Zeus be erected in the Temple. He banned circumcision and ordered pigs to be sacrificed at the altar of the Temple. This provoked a large-scale revolt.

    The Second Book of Maccabees (6:3-11)relates the terrible details: ‘Harsh and utterly grievous was the onslaught of evil. The Syrian Greeks filled the Temple with debauchery and reveling; dallied with harlots and had intercourse with women within the sacred precincts. They also brought in things for sacrifice that were unfit. The altar was covered with abominable offerings (pigs) which were forbidden by the Torah. A man could neither keep the Sabbath, nor observe the feasts of his fathers, nor so much as admit to being a Jew. On the monthly celebration of the king’s birthday, the Jews were taken, under bitter constraint, to partake of the sacrifices; and when the wine feast of Dionysus came, they were compelled to walk in the procession in honor of Dionysus, wearing wreaths of ivy.

    “At the suggestion of Ptolemy a decree was issued to the neighboring Greek cities, that they should adopt the same policy toward the Jews and make them partake of the sacrifices, and should slay those who did not choose to change over to Greek customs. One could see, therefore, the misery that had come upon them. For example, two women were brought in for having circumcised their children. These women they publicly paraded about the city, with their (dead) babies hung at their breasts, then were hurled down headlong from the wall. Others who had assembled in near by caves, to observe the Sabbath day secretly, were betrayed to Philip and were all burned together, because their piety kept them from defending themselves, in view of their regard for that most holy (Sabbath) day.”

    Mattityahu, a Jewish priest, and his five sons Jochanan, Simeon, Eleazar, Jonathan, and Judah led a rebellion against Antiochus. They became known as HaMakabim (the Hammers). In 166 BCE Mattathias died, and Judah Makabee took his place as leader. By 165 BCE the Jewish revolt against the Seleucid monarchy was largely successful. The Temple was liberated and (Hanukah) rededicated. The festival of Hanukkah was instituted to celebrate this event.

    The oil: Judah Makabee ordered the Temple to be purified, and a new altar to be built in place of the one polluted by pig’s blood. According to the Torah, pure olive oil was needed for the menorah in the Temple, which was required to burn day and night throughout the year.

    However, there was only enough pure oil found to burn for one day, and it would take a week to prepare a fresh supply of pure oil for the menorah. Some said delay the Hanukah of the Temple for a week.

    Others said kindle the Temple Menorah and pray for it to last until new pure oil could be made. The menorah was lit; and it did not go out prior to the arrival of the new pure oil. An eight-day festival was declared by the rabbis to commemorate this miracle.

    The lights: Can be candles or oil lamps. Most Jewish homes have a special candelabrum referred to as a hanukkiah, or an oil lamp holder for Hanukkah, which holds eight lights plus the additional light used to light the others each day. The reason for the Hanukkah lights is not to “light the house within”, but rather to “illuminate the house without,” so passersby should see it and be reminded of the holiday’s miracle. So lamps are set up at a prominent window or near the door leading to the street.
    Only when there was danger of antisemitic persecution were lamps supposed to be hidden from public view, as was the case in Persia under the rule of the Zoroastrians, or in parts of Europe before and during World War II.

    A modern Hanukah tale I told my granddaughters: Aisha,Talyah and their parents were standing just outside their front door, admiring their newly lit Hanukiya, when a power failure occurred. The street lights went out. The house lights went out. It was dark almost everywhere around them.

    The only lights they could see on the whole block were from the Hanukiya in the window of one house across the street, and from their own Hanukiya on the porch. After a few minuets, several of their neighbors, who did not want to sit in their dark houses, came over to join them.

    “It is a good thing you have those candles.” said one neighbor. “I am afraid of the dark.”
    “Why do you have the menorah outside?” asked another neighbor.
    “It is an old tradition” said Aisha. “Jews are supposed to publicize the miracle of Hanukah to all the people around them.”
    “You mean the oil that lasted for eight days.” said the neighbor who knew what a menorah was.

    “Yes “ said Aisha, “The oil is the symbol of hope and faith. If the Maccabees had not lit the lights in the restored Temple in Jerusalem, because they were afraid the lights would go out the next day, the miracle would not have happened.”
    “You mean the miracle of the oil?”
    “I mean the miracle that lots of times, things that you think will never happen, do happen, if you do not give up. If the Maccabees had not lit the oil lamps, how would they have found out that the oil could last for eight days.” said Aisha.

    And her sister Talyah added, “That is why we put the Hanukiya outside on the door step.”
    “Aren’t you afraid the wind will blow out the lights?” asked the neighbor who was afraid of the dark..

    “Most of the time it does on at least one or two evenings.” said Talya. “That is why we put another Hanukiya in the window. You should always trust in God, but if you can arrange for back up, you should do it. After all, you should not test God by expecting God to stop the winds every evening for eight days. Other people might need the wind.”

    “I thought Hanukah was the festival of freedom.” said another neighbor. “What does all this have to do with freedom?”

    Aisha answered, “Hanukah is a celebration of religious freedom; especially the freedom of all religious minorities to observe their religious practices with equal treatment and respect. But freedom is not only freedom from oppression.

    It is also freedom to do the right things, and to become a really good loving person. A free person is not free to oppress, hurt or insult other people or their religious’ beliefs. Freedom comes from fulfilling your responsibilities to other people, to nature, and to God.”

    They all stood in the dark talking about the importance of trust in God, hope and religious freedom for all people. Each had something to say and add. They could have gone on and on for a long time but just then the power came on and the lights lit up.

    The neighbors thanked the Cohen family for all they had learned, and the neighbor who was afraid of the dark said to them, “I think I will go to Church next Sunday.”

    • This website is not a Muslim website, it is a Kaddiani website, these people are ignorant people that follow a british invention version that seeks to subvert Islamic religion with a fake one. BEWARE, and to the people who think they are Kadiannis, i invite you to go back to the authentic sunnah and leave this munafiq man who who claimed he was Jesus, Krishna, Buddah, etc, how can you fall for such stupidity. You families will also leave it, if you do, you dont need this ignorance and deception, come back to the original unpolluted authentic Islam.

      • If I was British I would be offended that you claim the British helped the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at. At the height of the British Empire the British could have / would have been able to give the Ahmadi-Muslims some Maharaja castle and not leave them in such simple housing.

        What is your alternative belief to our founder claiming to be Messiah and Mahdi? Do you believe that Jesus went to ‘heaven’ in his ‘earthly body’ and come back with a 2000 year old body? OK, I promise you: If he does come I will reconsider!!! Until then I will remain a follower of whom we believe to be the Imam Mahdi and Messiah.

    • I am glad I have discovered this website and am looking forward to exploring it in depth. Having watched Fauda on Netflix I became aware that while I had watched and enjoyed several (albeit quite shocking) Israeli dramas, I have not in recent years explored the arab world or their point of view. I look forward to doing so. In a divided and violent world we need to learn all we can about each other. While I am a long time and firm atheist, I find much to admire in many religions. I have very much enjoyed Sufi poetry in the past and love to hear arabic music.

  2. Mr. Trump wants to know what the H… is going on
    You stated that you want to ban Muslims to enter the USA until the representatives of the people figure out what is going on. As the republican leading candidate for the top representative of the people, did you make any effort to figure it out before you made your outrageous declaration? Can we afford a president who makes such bombastic declarations before conducting research or thinking it through?
    Now pay attention. We are a great nation with a majority of faithful and fair minded citizenry but when we deviate from our fundamental values, kill people, insult their religion and deny them their freedom there are consequences.
    Our out of control ruling parties have been supporting our extremist allies in the Middle East with our money, weaponry and political cover while they kill innocent people, brutally occupy land and deny the occupants their freedom. We continue to support Israeli extremists and supported Saddam Hussain with arms including chemical weapons and intelligence to kill his own people and neighbors. Then we attacked Iraq under false pretences and destroyed a whole nation.
    Some of our narcissistic war hungry leaders have been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent children, men and women. The people we attack have feelings like the rest of us. By nature all people -from all walks of life- ethnicities, colors and creeds; have similar emotions. The excruciating pain and suffering caused by our actions result in a variety of responses none of which are pleasant. When innocent children are blown up in front of their family members, it causes unimaginable emotions. To stop this vicious cycle we have to stand up for our values -liberty and justice for all- stop the killings, strive for understanding each other and openly condemn bigotry. Vilifying, marginalizing and inciting hatred towards a specific religion simply because we do not fully understand, is not the answer.
    Islam is the name of the religion and not the followers of the religion. Islam unequivocally condemns radicalism and killing of the innocent. The use of the term Radical Islam is an oxymoron. There is only one Islam which is based on the original and precisely documented revelations. Use of the term “Radical Islam” is offensive to 1.5 Billion Muslims. The terms Radical Christianity or Radical Judaism can not be justified because some claiming to be Christians or Jewish commit heinous acts. Equally the use of the term Radical Islam can not be justified. Criminals are criminals regardless of their claimed ideology.
    When individuals in position of power, and official representatives of millions of Americans use such terms they are undermining the national interests of our nation by providing credibility to the claims that all of us are at war with Islam and not just the terrorists.
    It is repulsive when the candidates for the highest office declare that Muslims hate us because of who we are and not because of what we do. Who we are is defined by what we do. Such baseless statements are harmful to us all.

  3. But this site is run by Ahamdiyyaat. The “ahmadiyya” are not muslims as they fall outside of the pale of islam with their tenents and beliefs. They are a deviant sect founded recently (last 100 years or so) in India! Subhanallah. Look above my post. They’re telling people Merry Christmas! Of course only to the orthodox which are surely deviant but closer to the teachings of Issa bin Maryam (alayhi salam) than the deviants these days who call themselves “christians” celebrating the day on Dec. 25th which coincides with their pagan roman gods and godesses birthdays. The point is that NO muslim celebrates any holiday except the 2 holidays Eid al fitr and Eid al adha and we do not tell the mushrikeen (pagans) to have a “merry day” on the day that they reserve incorrectly for their “man god” ! What kind of belief is this?….Ahmadiyya. So this is not islam but Ahmadiyya. Call yourselves what you are! Oh I forgot, you think your leader/founder came and he was the Mahdi, Messiah and a prophet all in one and yet he fulfilled NONE of the goals! Issa bin Maryam (as) the Massih aka “Jesus” in some backwards translations….will arrive after the time when the false massih arrives and will kill him….hence the name “massih” ….. and tell your false Khaleefah that his days in hellfire will be equal to the pope’s days as he knows the truth but wishes to cover it up and lead people astray. He has not taken any oath as the way Abu bakr as-sadeeq (ra) did and he did not have it passed onto him forcefully as how Abu bakr as-sadeeq (ra) did for Umar ibn al-khattab (ra). He did not have shura with 6 righteous companions or scholars in the land of Islaam as did with Uthman ibn Affan (ra) nor did he inherit it as Ali ibn abi talib (ra) did. He IS NOT from bani quraish either! So how can he be a khaleefa. What a JOKE!

  4. Expected. Deniers of the basic creeds of islaam giving articles by other deniers of the creeds of islaam to justify their status? Unbelievable. You get your 5 min. of fame talking about islaam on CNN or Fox News regarding islaam by ignorant non-muslims. 120 Scholars? Scholars according to who? Disbelieving Sufi innovators like Zaid Shakir and Hamza Yusuf

    You will soon see how the world has turned against muslims and you people will deny that you’re muslim. You deny the works of the best generations. You deny and try to justify what doesn’t fit into your agenda. You take ayaat of qur’an and you incorrectly apply them. You hack the words of Allaah azawajal apart for you wicked agenda to please the disbelievers! For example:

    I have seen your group post things such as: “whoever kills an innocent person it is as if he has killed all of humanity” Qur’an 5:32
    Do you deny this?
    The same ignorant things that Obama said to the people of Egypt in their University upon his first appearance.

    Surah Al-Maeda
    “Then Allah sent a raven scratching up the ground, to show him how to hide his brother’s naked corpse. He said: Woe unto me! Am I not able to be as this raven and so hide my brother’s naked corpse? And he became repentant. (31) For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. ……..

    Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah’s Sovereignty), but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth. (32) The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom; (33) ”

    So you see? This verse was previously sent to banu isra’iyl (children of israel)! Now read the next verse in relation to that! ALLAAH AZAWAJAL says (english exceptable transileration of the meaning) :

    “The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom; ”

    So do you think you are better than Allaah the Exalted?
    Do you think his words are not fit for this era?
    Separation of Church and State! Did the prophet (saws) do this in the first Islamic State in medinat al-Medina?
    Are Allaah (swt) commands to his servants NOT enough to be considered a law? How do you separate al Islaam from al Islaam?
    GO STUDY before you enter jahannam on your face shackled to all of those people who are listening to you and believing in what you’re preaching.

    Subhanallah, you spend money for Public Relations. What did the prophet say about the disbelievers and the munaafiqeen? They will spend all of their money trying to destroy Islaam and they will fail.
    AND Falsehood is bound to perish.

    “And so will they continue to spend it; but in the end it will become an anguish for them. Then they will be overcome. And those who disbelieve will be gathered unto Hell.”

    And say: “Truth has (now) arrived, and Falsehood perished: for Falsehood is (by its nature) bound to perish.”

    Ask Allaah to guide you so that you can come to the correct path and save yourself from the fire. And Inshaa’allah (allaah willing) you will be a voice for those callers to islaam, free from these liars against Allaah, his last and final messenger, Muhammad ibn ‘abdallaah (saws).

    What are the actions which, if a Muslim does them, he will be an apostate from Islam?.
    Published Date: 2010-04-26
    Praise be to Allaah.

    Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

    Note that Allaah has commanded all people to enter Islam and to adhere to it and to beware of whatever is contrary to it. He sent His Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) to call mankind to that. He tells us that those who follow him will be guided and that those who turn away from him have gone astray. In many verses He warns against the means that lead to apostasy and all forms of shirk and kufr. The scholars (may Allaah have mercy on them) have said, when discussing apostasy, that a Muslim may apostatize from his religion by doing many acts that nullify Islam, which makes it permissible to shed his blood and seize his wealth, and which will put him beyond the pale of Islam. Among the most serious and most common of these things are ten which were mentioned by Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Wahhaab and other scholars (may Allaah have mercy on them all). We will mention them in brief here, so that you and others can beware of them, in the hope that you will be safe and sound. We will also explain a little about them after mentioning each one.

    1 – Shirk or associating others in worship with Allaah. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “Verily, Allaah forgives not (the sin of) setting up partners (in worship) with Him, but He forgives whom He wills, sins other than that, and whoever sets up partners in worship with Allaah, has indeed strayed far away”

    [al-Nisa’ 4:116]

    “Verily, whosoever sets up partners (in worship) with Allaah, then Allaah has forbidden Paradise to him, and the Fire will be his abode”

    [al-Maa’idah 5:72]

    That includes praying to the dead, seeking their help, making vows and offering sacrifices to them or to the jinn or to the grave.

    2 – Whoever sets up intermediaries between himself and Allaah, asks them to intercede, and puts his trust in them, is a kaafir according to scholarly consensus.

    3 – Whoever does not regard the mushrikeen as kaafirs, or doubts that they are kaafirs, or regards their way as correct, is a kaafir.

    4 – Whoever believes that anything other than the teaching of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is more complete than his teachings, or that the rulings of anyone else are better than his rulings – such as those who prefer the rule of false laws to his rulings – is a kaafir.

    5 – Whoever hates any part of that which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) brought, even if he acts in accordance with it, is a kaafir, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “That is because they hate that which Allaah has sent down (this Qur’aan and Islamic laws); so He has made their deeds fruitless”

    [Muhammad 47:9]

    6 – Whoever makes fun of anything in the religion of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), or makes fun of any texts that refer to rewards or punishments, is a kaafir. The evidence for that is the verse (interpretation of the meaning):

    “Say: Was it at Allaah, and His Ayaat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) and His Messenger that you were mocking?

    Make no excuse; you disbelieved after you had believed”

    [al-Tawbah 9:65-66]

    7 – Sihr (witchcraft) – including spells to turn one person against another or to make someone love another. Whoever does this or approves of it is a kaafir. The evidence for that is the verse (interpretation of the meaning):

    “but neither of these two (angels) taught anyone (such things) till they had said, ‘We are for trial, so disbelieve not (by learning this magic from us)’”

    [al-Baqarah 2:102]

    8 – Supporting the mushrikeen and helping them against the Muslims. The evidence for that is the verse in which Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Awliyaa’ (friends, protectors, helpers), they are but Awliyaa’ of each other. And if any amongst you takes them (as Awliyaa’), then surely, he is one of them. Verily, Allaah guides not those people who are the Zaalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers and unjust)”

    [al-Maa’idah 5:51]

    9 – Whoever believes that some people are allowed to operate outside the law of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) just as al-Khidr operated outside the law of Moosa (peace be upon him) is a kaafir, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers”

    [Aal ‘Imraan 3:85]

    10 – Turning away from the religion of Allaah, not learning it and not acting in accordance with it. The evidence for that is the verse (interpretation of the meaning):

    “And who does more wrong than he who is reminded of the Ayaat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of his Lord, then turns aside therefrom? Verily, We shall exact retribution from the Mujrimoon (criminals, disbelievers, polytheists, sinners)”

    [al-Sajdah 32:22]

    With regard to all of these acts that nullify Islam, it makes no difference whether a person is joking, serious or afraid, unless he is forced to do it. All of them are very serious, and they all happen a great deal. The Muslim should beware of them and fear falling into them. We seek refuge with Allaah from the things that may incur His wrath and painful punishment. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon the best of His creation, Muhammad, and upon his family and companions.

    The fourth category includes those who believe that the systems and laws devised by men are better than the sharee’ah of Islam, or equal to it; or that it is permissible to refer to them for judgements and rulings, even if he believes that referring to sharee’ah is better; or that the Islamic system is not fit to be applied in the twentieth century; or that it was the cause of the Muslims’ backwardness; or that it should be limited to a person’s relationship with his Lord and not have anything to do with the other affairs of life

    The fourth category also includes those who think that carrying out the ruling of Allaah by cutting off the hand of the thief or stoning the married adulterer is not appropriate in the modern age.

    That also includes: everyone who believes that it is permissible to rule according to something other than the laws of Allaah with regard to interactions, hudood punishments or other matters, even if he does not believe that that is better than the ruling of sharee’ah, because by doing so he is regarding as permissible something that Allaah has forbidden according to consensus, and everyone who regards as permissible something that Allaah has forbidden and is well known to be forbidden in Islam, such that no Muslim has any excuse for not knowing that it is forbidden, such as adultery, alcohol and riba, and ruling by something other than the sharee’ah of Allaah, is a kaafir according to the consensus of the Muslims.

    We ask Allaah to help us all to do that which pleases Him, and to guide us and all the Muslims to His Straight Path, for He is All Hearing, Ever-Responsive. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.

  6. As-Salam, alaikum, all mankind are from Adam(asw), therefore we must relate in kindness and respect the dignity of human person. Muslims are brothers to one another. Where there is any disagreement in term of ideological difference, it is advisable to refer to the Holy Quran. Prophet Muhammed is the seal of all prophets. The UK Muslim community should organized conference in order to clarify issues while making reference to the words of Allah and invoke the wrath of Allah to whoever lie. Muslims should not be seen as being violence and terrorizing for we are an organized and justify ummah.

    in Islam. The book was completed on 25 May 1908, a day earlier before his demise. every human should must read this book once in his life. if he wants to maintain peace love harmony and brotherhood in society as well as in his country. Islam is peaceful religion and its teachings are peaceful for all human beings.

    Salma Javid Khan

    Dr. Amtul Q Farhat

    Dr. Falak Rahman

    • Dear Mr. Zia H Shah
      Assalamo-o-alaikum wa Rahmatullah

      i dont find contact us button on the website.

      I visited Col. Atif and came to know about your The Muslim Times. I need to contact you. Mubarak Majeed Islamabad Pakistan

  16. I saw myself sitting in a car then it turned out to be the man driving the car stole it. Police was after us after some time the man changed and it turned out to be one of my friends. We parked the car after getting away from police and went to friends stationary shop. Can tou interpret this dreams meaning?

    • When you read Ibn Sirin’s Dream Interpretation Dictionary you will see that it is usually full of symbols. (river, mountain, earthquake, different kind of animals etc). Your dream does not contain any symbols and is most likely just … a dream without any particular meaning. That said, I am not really a qualified dream interpreter …

  17. ” Follow [O men!] the revelation given unto you from your Lord, and follow not, as friends or protectors, other than Him. Little it is ye remember of admonition, sura Araf, verse 3.

    Te Muslim Times is a Non Muslim (Kadiani- Amadya) site. And the Kadianis are declared as the non believers (Kafir) y the Almighty Allah and Prophet Muhammad (PU) and Islamic scholars all over the world. So beware entering into their own theological website.

    y the wa, they mentioned Islam only can e used for personal and spiritual purpose, but not for publics, political and social and international purpose. As they believe western secularism and trust on it and want to establish a secular world. but in suratul Maeda, Almighty Allah says: This day those who disbelieve have despaired of [defeating] your religion; so fear them not, but fear Me. This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion.

    • Those who declare others as non-Muslim should bear in mind the following hadith:

      Hadith on Jihad: Did you tear open his heart to see his intention?
      Abu Amina Elias
      Agreed Upon ‏متفق عليهBloodshed سفك الدماءCompanions الصحابةCovenants العهدFear الخوفFitnah الفتنةFreedom الحريةGood Assumption حسن الظنHearts القلوبIdolatry الشركInnovation البدعةJihad الجهادJustice العدلKhawarij الخوارجMajor Sins الكبائرMonotheism التوحيدProphetic Biography السيرة النبويةRighteous Predecessors السلف الصالحTransgression الاعتداءTrials البلاءUnseen الغيبWrongdoing الظلم
      Usama ibn Zaid said: The Messenger of Allah, peace ad blessings be upon him, sent us on an expedition. In the morning we attacked Al-Huraqat of Juhaynah. I caught hold of a man and he said, “There is no god but Allah!” but I stabbed him. Then it occurred to me that I should mention that to the Prophet. The Prophet said, “Did he say ‘there is no god but Allah’ and you killed him?” I said, “O Messenger of Allah, he only said it fearing of the weapon.” The Prophet said, “Did you tear open his heart to know if he meant it or not?” The Prophet continued to repeat this to me until I had wished I had not embraced Islam until that day.
      Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 6478, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 96

  18. I notice you only quoted 5:32 with the picture of the burning Twin Towers.Who exactly attacked them? Chrisians;Jews? No, muslims. Here is Verse 33, which puts a different slant on things:
    [5:33] The penalty of those who wage war against God and His messenger and seek corruption in the land is to be killed, or crucified, or to have their hands and feet cut on alternate sides, or to be banished from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and in the Hereafter they shall have a great punishment.
    Good luck with your attempts to ‘pacify’ Islam. The Koran says otherwise.
