Police say man beaten to death and set on fire for apparently desecrating Islam's holy book, Quran.
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
The outbreak of the Arab Spring in 2011 brought significant attention to groups -- known as Islamists -- seeking to establish Islamic states in countries once ruled by secular autocrats. The bulk of this attention went to already established political groups such as the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, which caused consternation in the West when its Freedom and Justice Party won control of both Egypt's parliament and its presidency.
Much less attention was paid to the Brotherhood's principal Islamist competitors, members of the ultraconservative Salafist movement, despite their second-place finish in Egypt's parliamentary elections. This changed in late September when certain Salafists played a key role in the unrest in reaction to an anti-Islamic video posted on the Internet.
Since then, Salafism has become the subject of much public discourse -- though as is often the case with unfamiliar subjects, questions are vastly more numerous than answers. This is compounded by the rapidity of its rise from a relatively minor, apolitical movement to an influential Islamist phenomenon......
The regime and its loyalists try to foster sectarian animosity in order to divide Bahrainis and conquer them......thus maintaining their positions of oppulence. Shame on the Al-Khalifas, this isn't a Shia or Sunni issue, it is a Human Rights issue. The opposition represents all who are 'Human' and advocates for their rights. To foster enmity of Muslims against fellow Muslims is not in keeping with the teachings of the Prophet!

[I checked 'Song of Songs' 5:16 and 'Song of Solomon' 5:16 and didn't see the text referenced here...No 'Mohammad' reference?! Not doubting or argueing, just wanting to understand! Can anyone clue me in? email@example.com I liked the video, and will post here, very inspirational! | I replayed the video, I'm on track with the verse and book, they reference the original Hebrew text, and 4 characters from hebrew.....I am unfamiliar with the book referenced...'medjelet' 'megelet' ??!! Occurs at about 3:30 timepoint in the video | Take three....I just was sent this: http://is.gd/5XgdgV I think this clears up the translation issues better than the video! Good try..........Muhammad isn't in the Bible or Old Testament, but is in the Quran! Good enough! Why does he need to be in the Bible or Old Testament? ]
Sunni and Shia pray side by side. There is only ONE Islam, with ONE God, and ONE Prophet!
Al-Khalifas don't get it! This may require counting abilities that are beyond their level!
This sermon was delivered on the Ninth Day of Dhul Hijjah 10 A.H. in the 'Uranah valley of Mount Arafat' (in Mecca).
After praising, and thanking Allah he said:
"O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you very carefully 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. ALLAH has forbidden you to take usury (interest), therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived. Your capital, however, is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity. Allah has Judged that there shall be no interest and that all the interest due to Abbas ibn 'Abd'al Muttalib (Prophet's uncle) shall henceforth be waived...
Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.
O People, it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have rights over you. Remember that you have taken them as your wives only under Allah's trust and with His permission. If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste.
O People, listen to me in earnest, worship ALLAH, say your five daily prayers (Salah), fast during the month of Ramadan, and give your wealth in Zakat. Perform Hajj if you can afford to.
All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves.
Remember, one day you will appear before ALLAH and answer your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.
O People, NO PROPHET OR APOSTLE WILL COME AFTER ME AND NO NEW FAITH WILL BE BORN. Reason well, therefore, O People, and understand words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the QURAN and my example, the SUNNAH and if you follow these you will never go astray.
All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me directly. Be my witness, O ALLAH, that I have conveyed your message to your people".
Since she is such an outspoken advocate for Islam, Why has Islam turned its back on her as she languishes in American prison on false charges?
A course for US military officers has been teaching that America's enemy is Islam in general and suggesting that the country might ultimately have to obliterate the Islamic holy cities of Mecca and Medina without regard for civilian deaths, following second world war precedents of the nuclear attack on Hiroshima.
The Pentagon suspended the course in late April when a student objected to the material. The FBI also changed some agent training last year after discovering that it, too, was critical of Islam. ....
[Unbelievable stupidity.....and to think, these people are in power! ]
[ I am sure Allah will get your message of prayer from wherever you send it, unfortunately for the Al-Khalifas, he also gets the message of how they are trying to block prayers with this barbed wire.....]
