After the prayers, Elif-Nur Tor spoke about the religion of Islam, which means peace, and current turmoil carried out in the name of Islam is NOT the preaching of Islam.

The following Islamic Peace Prayer was recited by Zubeda Raihman:  

Arabic:

Asalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahe Wa Baraktahu  

“Bismillah-hir-rahman ni Raheem. Allahumma antassalaam, wa minkassalaam, wa Alaika yerjessalaam. Hayyena rabbana bissalame waádhkilna darassalaame tabarakta rabbana wa taälaita ya zaljalal-i-walikram” Ameen.  

Translation:  

In the name of God, the beneficent the merciful.  

Oh Allah! You are peace personified; you are the source of peace for all other creatures; peace always turns towards Thee. Oh Creator and Sustainer! keep us alive with peace, and let us enter the Home of Paradise. Oh Lord! Oh Possessor of awe and honor! You are sublime and bounteous. So be it Oh Lord.  

Islam religion of peace – Sayings of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)  

“You will not enter Paradise until you believe,  And you will not believe, until you love one another, And you will not love one another until you promote peace among you.  Silent reflection: “Let peace fill our hearts, our world and our universe.”

RAMADAN MUBARAK 18 June 2015

By the Grace and Mercy of Allah Most High, we have been blessed to see another Ramadan – to feel the joy of this wonderful, special time which

has been celebrated through the Islamic ages.

Although every Ramadan is special, somehow there is something even more special this year – it is the first year, in our memory at least, where those who

go by the moon sighting and those who favour scientific methods are as one!   Indeed, Allah has made it easy for us – praise be to Him for His Mercy.

Insha’Allah may its beauty, its healing power, and its miracle of uniting the Ummah, be witnessed by us all.

Surely none of us knows how long our time upon this Earth may be, whether long or short, this knowledge is with Allah Alone –

How splendid then that we have this time to start afresh.  It does not mean that our trials will not be great, as this era is one of pain,

But with every pain Allah is there to comfort, with every blow He is there to uplift, if we will but call upon Him:

“When My servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them); I listen to the prayer of every supplicant when he calleth upon Me:

Let them also, with a will, Listen to My call, and believe in Me: That they may walk in the right way” Surah Al Baqarah (2) 186.

It is no error that this beautiful Qur’anic promise is within the verses relating to Ramadan – it is very special.

Again – Ramadan Mubarak

Fi Aman Allah

Wassalaam

From Ali and Shifa Mustapha Members of Muslim Womens’ National Network of Australia with our congratulations;

our best wishes, duahs for all, and many thanks for the love and kindness so many of you given to us,

May your rewards with Allah be Great

Dr.Ameer Ali’s Address to the Muslim Women Conference

My Dear Sisters and Brothers

At the outset I must confess that I am a controversial person. I say things that many, especially those in the orthodox camp of Islamic thought, will find difficult to digest. But my thoughts are the product of long years of research and reading and are intended to create critical thinking about our received wisdom. My views on Muslim women represent the yearnings of a person who wants to see the one half of the Muslim community, which is also responsible for bringing up the other one half to this world, liberate itself from centuries of male dominance, deprivation, and discrimination imposed by a patriarchal culture championed by an orthodox clergy.
