Hijab brought me to Islam: Jessica-New revert to Islam

Hijab brought me to Islam: Jessica-New revert to Islam
==========================================
Jessica Rhodes is a 21 year old female from Norwich, UK who works as a telesales consultant and is also a student. She was a Pagan before reverting to Islam a month ago.
She was born in 1991 and was adopted in 1993. Grew up in a small seaside town on the south east coast of England, she went to university at 19 to study for a degree in Music and she hopes to do postgraduate qualifications in counselling starting September 2013.
She has an amazing story of her reversion and how she got attracted to Islam. New York based lady Nazma Khan started a campaign known as ‘world hijab day’. The movement has been organised almost solely over social networking sites. It has attracted interest from Muslims and non-Muslims in more than 50 countries across the world. For many people, the hijab is a symbol of oppression and divisiveness. It’s a visible target that often bears the brunt of a larger debate about Islam in the West. World Hijab Day is designed to counteract these controversies. It encourages non-Muslim women (or even Muslim women who do not ordinarily wear one) to don the hijab and experience what it’s like to do so, as part of a bid to foster better understanding.
It was social networking that got Jessica Rhodes involved. Her friend Widyan Al Ubudy lives in Australia and asked her Facebook friends to participate. Jessica who was a non-Muslim decided to participate in the world hijab day. She says: “I took part in the first World Hijab Day and challenged myself to wear the hijab for a month. I then began reading the Quran and the words in the Quran seemed logical and clear, rather than in the Bible where they tend to waffle. I also did some research into Islam as a whole and felt that it was an inclusive religion that could give me the answers I was looking for”. Although her parents were little apprehensive, if it was a good idea or she may be attacked in the streets because of non-tolerance.
Several Websites like BBC, CBBC, Muslim times, Malaysian Digest has published articles on her regarding the experience of anon-Muslim wearing a hijab
The defining moment in her life was when she walked out in Hijab for the first time as a non-Muslim and she could not remember what it felt like to go without a hijab on.
On reaction of her parents/friends/relatives/Husband she says: “It was a bag of mix, parents were not happy but they accept my decision. My in-laws have been extremely supportive. My friends are unfortunately a mixed bag – some are happy with my decision, others want to argue with me about it, and still others walked out of my life altogether.”
On the question of what challenges she faced as a Muslim she said is lucky and so far she didn’t face any problem and everybody has been very supportive and open-minded about it.
She further added on the level of support from other Muslims: “I have had some support, but not many people seem to want to reach out to me, it is always me asking for help. When I go and ask questions, people quote the Quran at me and do not seem open to a convert’s interpretation of the Quran. They can improve this by being more open-minded to other interpretations, because it is not just Westerners who can be narrow-minded, misguided etc.”
She further adds: “sometimes I am unsure – the reaction from most of the Muslims that I have spoken to has led me to feel like I should leave Islam and go back to paganism as in that religion I was given a choice about how I practice my religion, and nobody cared if I did things my way or another way. As for the Muslim Ummah… that is in the hands of Allah. If people worldwide, of all walks of life, are more open-minded perhaps we can move forward but if not, we will simply continue to be in a mire of misconceptions, anger and pointless wars”.
Jessica wore the hijab for the first time last week to her office and got wonderful response.

I have worn Hijab from the day I reverted to Islam: Amirah

 ‏‎Lets know our GOD.‎‏ من قبل ‏‏‎Koki Noor‎‏‏.
I have worn Hijab from the day I reverted to Islam: Amirah
Amirah used to be Danielle Mundy before changing her faith on December 17th 2012 . She is 33 years old, Lecturer EAP / EFL, Teacher Trainer, Materials Writer from Worcester UK. She lived in Spain for 3 years and have a passion for learning languages and traveling. She thoroughly enjoys her job and is blessed with two beautiful boys aged 8 and 3.

Elaborating her initial interest in Islam Amirah says “ I am a TEFL Teacher and Trainer and have worked in this sector since 1998. I have been exposed to many Muslims from different countries all over the world and I have always been interested in both the culture and religion. I nearly reverted many years back but was afraid of what my family would say. Some of my closest friends are Muslim so I always felt very much at ease around the culture and religion.”
She felt a calling for a long while to revert. “It is hard to explain but almost a tow telling me to follow this path and these feelings became much stronger last December and I realised it was the right thing to do.” She believe when you do something it should be in your heart 100 per cent and you should do it properly .It was the moment she felt 100 percent .

About coping with the difficulties of a new life Amirah says “My children are brilliant and have been praying and learning with me, the youngest child especially. My ex partner is Tunisian so actually prayer and eating halal is not new for my family. My parents and close family have been unsupportive and will not be seen with me in Hijab. I am limited to seeing relatives in my house only because they have very strong opinions against Hijab. I was asked to go for a family meal in a restaurant but to take off the Hijab – I said no – I have worn Hijab from the day I reverted and it is part of me and my faith now and I believe very strongly in that. I have friends from so many different nationalities and I pride myself on never judging anyone, learning so much from different people but I respect the fact that different people have different opinions. However, I am a grown woman who is in sound mind and able to make my own decisions about my life and my affairs. Islam is a huge part of that. I am proud to say I am Muslim, I am content, and eventually people will see that.”

She has not much difficulties in facing the challenges of professional life and work place. She has all praise for her colleague lecturers at the university . She found that people with a better educational background are more supportive and tolerant of other cultures. Amirah teaches in the Language Centre so has to face a huge mix of nationalities, cultures and religions but her concern is her training job – she trains people to be TEFL teachers and there is often 20 delegates and herself the sole trainer. Describing the typical situation before breaking the ice and mingling with delegates she quips “Everyone looked a bit shocked at first but after 5 minutes there were no issues and my feedback was the same as always” .

Luckily she got a lot of supports from Muslims. She says “ I am lucky to have a lot of Muslim sisters around me. They have all been a power of strength and incredibly supportive when I have questions about prayer and Islam in general. A lot of the support is from Muslim sisters that I have trained on TEFL courses – I thank them so much as they have been my guidance especially when my family and some close friends have been quite rude about my decision to revert. In times of isolation I know I can count of them to offer support and keep me strong and of course prayer is fantastic for that too”.
In future she wants to learn more about Islam and become a more informed Muslima and give a proper education to her children especially about Islam.

Daily Hadith – 27

Daily Hadith – 27
أبا هريرة رضي الله عنه قال سمعت النبي صلی الله عليه وسلم يقول من حج لله فلم يرفث ولم يفسق رجع کيوم ولدته أمه
Narrated Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him): The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever performs Hajj for Allah’s sake only and does not have sexual relations with his wife, and does not do evil or sins; then he will return (after Hajj free from all sins) as if he were born anew.”
حضرت ابوہریرہ رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ سے روایت کرتے ہیں۔ انہوں نے بیان کیا کہ میں نے نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کو فرماتے ہوئے سنا کہ جس نے اللہ کے لئے حج کیا اور اس نے نہ فحش بات کی اور نہ گناہ کا مرتکب ہوا تو اس دن کی طرح (گناہ سے پاک وصاف) ہوگا جس دن سے اس کی ماں نے جنا تھا۔
[Sahih Al-Bukhari, Book of Hajj, Hadith: 1521]

The Three BIG losers:

The Three BIG losers:
(The Manifest Loss) الخسران المبين
1. Those who take Shaytaan as their Walee:
وَلَأُضِلَّنَّهُمْ وَلَأُمَنِّيَنَّهُمْ وَلَآمُرَنَّهُمْ فَلَيُبَتِّكُنَّ آذَانَ الْأَنْعَامِ وَلَآمُرَنَّهُمْ فَلَيُغَيِّرُنَّ خَلْقَ اللَّـهِ ۚ وَمَن يَتَّخِذِ الشَّيْطَانَ وَلِيًّا مِّن دُونِ اللَّـهِ فَقَدْ خَسِرَ خُسْرَانًا مُّبِينًا
{Verily, I will mislead them, and surely, I will arouse in them false desires; and certainly, I will order them to slit the ears of cattle, and indeed I will order them to change the nature created by Allaah." And whoever takes Shaitaan (Satan) as a Walee (protector or helper) instead of Allaah, has surely suffered a manifest loss.} [Surah al-Nisaa (4):119]
Note: No one would consciously take Shaitaan as their Walee, but by worshiping other than Allaah, following ones vain the desires and Satanic methods (as mentioned in the above verse), one is indeed taking him as a Walee.
*******
2. Those who worship Allaah only when they are pleased or in need of something and abandon His worship when they get displeased or get what they wanted:
وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَعْبُدُ اللَّـهَ عَلَىٰ حَرْفٍ ۖ فَإِنْ أَصَابَهُ خَيْرٌ اطْمَأَنَّ بِهِ ۖ وَإِنْ أَصَابَتْهُ فِتْنَةٌ انقَلَبَ عَلَىٰ وَجْهِهِ خَسِرَ الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةَ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ هُوَ الْخُسْرَانُ الْمُبِينُ
{And among mankind is he who worships Allaah as it were, upon the very edge (i.e. in doubt); if good befalls him, he is content therewith; but if a trial befalls him, he turns back on his face (i.e. reverts back to disbelief after embracing Islaam). He loses both this world and the Hereafter. That is the evident loss.} [Surah al-Hajj (22):11]
*******
3. Those who will lose themselves and their families in the Hereafter:
فَاعْبُدُوا مَا شِئْتُم مِّن دُونِهِ ۗ قُلْ إِنَّ الْخَاسِرِينَ الَّذِينَ خَسِرُوا أَنفُسَهُمْ وَأَهْلِيهِمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ ۗ أَلَا ذَٰلِكَ هُوَ الْخُسْرَانُ الْمُبِينُ
{So worship what you like besides Him. Say (O Muhammad): "The losers are those who will lose themselves and their families on the Day of Resurrection. Verily, that will be a manifest loss!"} [Surah al-Zumar (39): 15]

IDC's Daniel Johnson and Abbas Rafi were busy helping out at IDC's "Elderly Care Project" in Walker today. As always the guys had a great time, and the old folks appreciated the company.

Quran’s Lesson - Surah Al-A’raf 7

Quran’s Lesson - Surah Al-A’raf 7, Verse 20-21, Part 8
فَوَسْوَسَ لَهُمَا الشَّيْطَانُ لِيُبْدِيَ لَهُمَا مَا وُورِيَ عَنْهُمَا مِنْ سَوْآتِهِمَا وَقَالَ مَا نَهَاكُمَا رَبُّكُمَا عَنْ هَٰذِهِ الشَّجَرَةِ إِلَّا أَنْ تَكُونَا مَلَكَيْنِ أَوْ تَكُونَا مِنَ الْخَالِدِينَ۔ وَقَاسَمَهُمَا إِنِّي لَكُمَا لَمِنَ النَّاصِحِينَ۔
Then Shaitan (Satan) whispered suggestions to them both in order to uncover that which was hidden from them of their private parts (before); he said: “Your Lord did not forbid you this tree save you should become angels or become of the immortals.” And he [Shaitan (Satan)] swore by Allah to them both (saying): “Verily, I am one of the sincere well-wishers for you both.”
پھر شیطان نے ان دونوں کو بہکانے کے لیے (ان کے دل میں) وسوسہ ڈالا، تا کہ ان کے لیے ان کی شرم گاہیں ظاہر کر دے جو ان سے چھپائی گئی تھیں۔ اور شیطان نے کہا: تمہارے رب نے تمہیں صرف اس لیے روکا ہے کہ (کہیں) تم دونوں فرشتے نہ بن جاؤ، یا (کہیں) تم دونوں ہمیشہ رہنے والوں میں سے نہ ہو جاؤ۔ اور اس نے ان دونوں کے سامنے قسم کھائی کہ بے شک میں تم دونوں کے خیرخواہوں میں سے ہوں۔
[Al-Quran 7:20-21]

hadith

As the Prophet (pbuh) said, “Look at those who are worse off than you and not to those better off than you, as it is better for you to not be ungrateful for Allah’s favors on you.” (Sahih Muslim) ‪#‎Gratitude‬

Are perfumes that contain alcohol haram?

Are perfumes that contain alcohol haram?
Brother’s question concerning perfumes which contain alcohol.
Why this is an issue? Because of the fact that we know alcohol for Muslims is prohibited.
Alcohol is prohibited. However, It is prohibited primarily from drinking. This is the point. The production, consumption, distribution, and sales of alcohol for the purpose of drinking is forbidden.
However, we now use the term 'alcohol' to include a number of other substances which belong to the same family, but they’re not for drinking. They’re called alcohols. This is a chemical title. So all of those which are not for drinking are not included. The alcohol which may be found in some products, which are used for other than drinking purposes, won't be considered prohibited as a muslim to produce it. However, if it is used for drinking, then of course we shouldn’t.
If a product does contain a percentage of alcohol, and this substance is being used not for drinking purposes; it is for wounds, cleaning wounds. It is for, as the brother asked, for the production of perfume.
If the alcohol is used in the making of the perfume; is this forbidden in Islam? No. It's not forbidden.
The alcohol that is forbidden, is the one that is used for drinking purposes. The alcohol which is used for consumption - this is the alcohol which is forbidden.
