Before speaking, let your words pass through three gates. At the first gate, ask yourself: ‘Is it true?’ At the second: ‘Is it necessary?’ And at the third: ‘Is it kind?’
The worst person is he who treats another badly due to the other’s indecency.
With God rests all power of decision, first and last.
— Qur’ān 30:4
And spend [freely] in God’s cause, and let not your own hands throw you into destruction; and persevere in doing good: behold, God loves the doers of good.
If we took one atom of Abu Bakr or Umar’s love and split it among the entire ummah, they’d be dazzled in love.
Never give one whose heart is deviant access to your two ears, for surely you never know what may find fixity in you.
All believers are but brothers. Hence, make peace between your two brothers, and remain conscious of God, so that you might be graced with His mercy. (49:10)
'My Jihad' Bus Ads Debut In Chicago
A new ad campaign debuted this week in Chicago that’s sure to turn some heads.
On Monday, 25 CTA buses began sporting ads from “My Jihad,” a new educational campaign introduced by the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Chicago chapter (CAIR-Chicago).
Founded by Ahmed Rehab, CAIR-Chicago executive director, the campaign was conceived as a response to the anti-Islam ad campaign created by conservative blogger Pamela Geller, who ran a series of controversial “Defeat Jihad” ads on city buses last month.
The goal of the campaign, Rehab explained, is “reclaiming Jihad from the Muslim and anti-Muslim extremists who ironically, but not surprisingly, see eye to eye on Jihad,” according to a CAIR statement.
The literal meaning of Jihad, according to the BBC, is “struggle or effort” — not simply a “holy war” waged on behalf of Islam. It is a central doctrine of the Islamic faith.
