In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful,

the Most Compassionate

Praise be to Allah, and may His peace and blessings be upon Muhammad,

and upon his family and companions, and all those who follow him



Recently a friend, (Ms.Elizabeth Potter, Unity Productions Foundation. myfellowamerican.us, facebook.com/ MyFellowAmericanProject) showed me this amazing video.  I was so overwhelmed and sadden by what took place.  The predicaments my brothers and sisters have to endure everyday.  I sincerely hope the world can be united in peace.  As I believe everyone and everything has the RIGHT to abide in this little world. Thus would like to share with you this video and hopefully you can take the pledge. Thank you.




May Allah accept our good deeds
forgive our sins 
and purify our hearts 
to gain success in this world
and the hereafter

 Surah Al-Mulk (Dominion)

1. Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things.
2. Who has created death and life, that He may test you which of you is best in deed. And He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving;
3. Who has created the seven heavens one above another, you can see no fault in the creations of the Most Beneficent. Then look again: "Can you see any rifts?"
4. Then look again and yet again, your sight will return to you in a state of humiliation and worn out.
5. And indeed We have adorned the nearest heaven with lamps, and We have made such lamps (as) missiles to drive away the Shayatin (devils), and have prepared for them the torment of the blazing Fire.
6. And for those who disbelieve in their Lord (Allah) is the torment of Hell, and worst indeed is that destination.
7. When they are cast therein, they will hear the (terrible) drawing in of its breath as it blazes forth.
8. It almost bursts up with fury. Every time a group is cast therein, its keeper will ask: "Did no warner come to you?"
9. They will say: "Yes indeed; a warner did come to us, but we belied him and said: 'Allah never sent down anything (of revelation), you are only in great error.'"
10. And they will say: "Had we but listened or used our intelligence, we would not have been among the dwellers of the blazing Fire!"
11. Then they will confess their sin. So, away with the dwellers of the blazing Fire.
12. Verily! Those who fear their Lord unseen (i.e. they do not see Him, nor His Punishment in the Hereafter, etc.), theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward (i.e. Paradise).
13. And whether you keep your talk secret or disclose it, verily, He is the All-Knower of what is in the breasts (of men).
14. Should not He Who has created know? And He is the Most Kind and Courteous (to His slaves) All-Aware (of everything).
15. He it is, Who has made the earth subservient to you (i.e. easy for you to walk, to live and to do agriculture on it, etc.), so walk in the path thereof and eat of His provision, and to Him will be the Resurrection.
16. Do you feel secure that He, Who is over the heaven (Allah), will not cause the earth to sink with you, then behold it shakes (as in an earthquake)?
17. Or do you feel secure that He, Who is over the heaven (Allah), will not send against you a violent whirlwind? Then you shall know how (terrible) has been My Warning?
18. And indeed those before them belied (the Messengers of Allah), then how terrible was My denial (punishment)?
19. Do they not see the birds above them, spreading out their wings and folding them in? None upholds them except the Most Beneficent (Allah). Verily, He is the All-Seer of everything.
20. Who is he besides the Most Beneficent that can be an army to you to help you? The disbelievers are in nothing but delusion.
21. Who is he that can provide for you if He should withhold His provision? Nay, but they continue to be in pride, and (they) flee (from the truth).
22. Is he who walks without seeing on his face, more rightly guided, or he who (sees and) walks on a Straight Way (i.e. Islamic Monotheism).
23. Say it is He Who has created you, and endowed you with hearing (ears), seeing (eyes), and hearts. Little thanks you give.
24. Say: "It is He Who has created you from the earth, and to Him shall you be gathered (in the Hereafter)."
25. They say: "When will this promise (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) come to pass? if you are telling the truth."
26. Say (O Muhammad saw): "The knowledge (of its exact time) is with Allah only, and I am only a plain warner."
27. But when they will see it (the torment on the Day of Resurrection) approaching, the faces of those who disbelieve will be different (black, sad, and in grieve), and it will be said (to them): "This is (the promise) which you were calling for!"
28. Say (O Muhammad saw): "Tell me! If Allah destroys me, and those with me, or He bestows His Mercy on us, - who can save the disbelievers from a painful torment?"
29. Say: "He is the Most Beneficent (Allah), in Him we believe, and in Him we put our trust. So you will come to know who is it that is in manifest error."
30. Say (O Muhammad saw): "Tell me! If (all) your water were to be sunk away, who then can supply you with flowing (spring) water?" 

The Virtues of Reciting Surah al Mulk

The Prophet said, 'There is a surah in the Qur'an which is only 30 verses.  It defended whoever recited it until it puts him into paradise' i.e. Surah al Mulk
[Fath al Qadir 5/257, Sahihul Jamiea 1/680, Tabrani in Al-Awsat & Ibn
Mardawaith]

Abu Huraira reported that the Messenger of Allah said, "The Qur'an contains a surah of thirty ayats which will intercede for a man until he is forgiven. It is:  'Blessed be He who has the Kingdom in His Hand!' (67)"
[abu Dawud, Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi, Riyad as-Salihin by Imam an-Nawawi
Ch.183 #1016]

The Prophet said, 'Surah al Mulk is the protector from the torment of the grave'
[Sahihul Jamiea 1/680, Hakim 2/498 & Nasai]

Jabirsaid it was the custom of the Prophet not to go to sleep until he had read Tabarakallahi Biyadihil Mulk and Alif Laam Meem Tanzeel.
[Ahmad, Tirmidhi and Darami]

Anas reported Rasulullah as saying, "There is a Surah which will plead for its reciter till it causes him to enter paradise (Tabarakallahi Biyadihil Mulk)."
[at-Tabrani]

Abdullah Ibn 'Abbas reported that the Prophet said, 'It is my desire/love that Surahtul Mulk should be in the heart of every Muslim'
[Hakim, al-Hisnul Haseen by the cassical scholar Muhammad al-Jazri]

Ibn Abbas said that one of the Prophet companions set up his tent over a grave without realising that it was a grave and it contained a man who was reciting the Surah Tabarakallahi Biyadihil Mulk up to the end. He went and told the Prophet who said, 'It is The Defender; it is The Protector which safeguards from Allah Ta'ala's punishment'
[at-Tirmidhi]

It was narrated that Abdullah ibn Mas'ud said: Whoever readsTabarakallahi Biyadihil Mulk [i.e. Surah al-Mulk] every night, Allah will protect him from the torment of the grave. At the time of the Messenger of Allah we used to call ital-mani'ah (that which protects). In the Book of Allah it is a surah which, whoever recites it every night has done very well.
[an-Nasa'i]

The Spread of Islam

One of the most astounding facts about the prophet muhammad: A hundred years after the death of the prophet Muhammad, the Islamic faith was disseminated to Egypt and to North Africa. Its most western sweep was taking the Iberian Peninsula and its most eastern sweep was Sassanian Persia. 

The reign of Moorish Spain lasted over seven hundred years. Historic Cordoba situated in Andalucia Spain was where Caliphal Cordoba centered on Caliphal Architecture. The Caliphal city of Madinat-az-Zahra along with the last European monumental city of Islamic Architecture: the Alhambra Granada Spain are but a few highlights of the glory of Islamic al-Andalusia.

TRY AGAIN







Try again.

Then your courage should appear,
For if you will persevere,
You will conquer, never fear,

Try again.


Once or twice though you should fail,
Try again.

If you would at last prevail,

Try again.

If we strive, its no disgrace,
Though we do not win the race,
What should we do in that case,
Try again.




If you find your task is hard,
Try again.

Time will bring you your reward,
Try again.



All that other folks can do,
Why, with patience, may not you?
Only keep this rule in view,

TRY AGAIN!
