Published on 3 Apr 2012 | The Bangsa Moro struggle for self-determination is already a struggle of generations. The longest Jihad Combat in Asia and maybe in the whole world, it started in the 16th century and up to now there is no greenlight yet as to when it will end. This it self is a sign of Victory. Other peoples' struggle in the world have either succeeded or been totally crushed. The Moro struggle is still going on. It is an ongoing struggle for survival, cultural identity, the right to self-determination and most of all their religious duty towards their Lord.

Published on 19 Sep 2013 | "My Ummah will divide into seventy-three sects all of which except one will go to the Fire, and they (i.e. the Saved Sect) are those who are upon what I and My Companions are upon" ~ Prophet Muhammad (ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam)
One of the most oft-commented tradition of our Prophet (ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam) that is echoed from the mimbars of every Masjid & the focus point of many conversations of our over-zealous youth. Yet many questions arise. Are the majority of the Ummah misguided?! And is every 'deviation' automatically bound to the Fire of Hell? And which group is the Saved Sect?

Istanbul: The US charge d'affaires in Khartoum, Joseph D Stafford, resigned from his post after he converted to Islam, Sudanese local media sources said.
According to World Bulletin, Stafford told the foreign ministry that his resignation was made for "personal reasons" but Sudanese sources claimed that the envoy was forced to resign after he turned to Islam.
Sources said that Stafford has recorded visits to the headquarters of Ansar al-Sunnah in Sudan and established a close relationship with a number of Sudanese clerics through these visits.
The U.S. State Department has not made any statement to confirm or deny the news on Joseph Stafford.
After his resign, Stafford published an article in the Sudan Tribune and said, "My wife and I have been very fortunate to meet so many wonderful people throughout Sudan who share a strong desire and willingness to improve their communities. We will always remember you and your compelling country, and I know you will continue your hard work for a better life, just as you say daily 'Fi Kulu Harakah Baraka' (Arabic for 'in every move there is a blessing')."
The U.S. has not appointed an ambassador to its embassy in Khartoum since 1998 and has kept its representation there at charge d'affaires despite Sudan's demand that it be upgraded.

Arnoud van Doorn (pic), who announced he converted to Islam after resigning from Freedom Party (PVV) led by extreme rightist Geert Wilders, was in Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj.
Arnoud van Doorn, former member of the Party for Freedom in Netherlands and a former antagonist of Islam, was one of the thousands who came to Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj, Riyadhconnect reported.
Van Doorn, who until the end of 2011, was a strong supporter of Geert Wilders, the Dutch leader who created the anti-Islamic film ‘Fitna’. He resigned from Freedom Party (PVV) led by extreme rightist Wilders after converting to Islam.
Earlier this year, van Doorn declared in public that he had embraced Islam. In his quest to produce another anti-Islam film, he took to learning more about the religion that he strongly advocated against. He read and learned in depth the Holy Quran and Islamic teachings and later became spiritually inspired by Islam.
Van Doorn had come to Saudi Arabia earlier this year to perform Umrah. According to the report, he expressed his feelings while performing Hajj; said that his eyes were filled with tears of joy ever since he arrived in Makkah. He added that he was living the best moments of his life, reported Akhbaar24.
He said that he found in Islam what he was lacking and searching for in his previous life. He went for Hajj to ask Allah for forgiveness and to pray that Allah erases his past sins. It is his wish to live in Al-Madinah close to the Prophet’s mosque; however his family and work hinder him from fulfilling his wish.
Van Doorn is planning to produce a film that defends Islam and shows the truth, Riyadhconnect reported.

Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaathuhu
Allah (subahaanahu wa ta'ala) has created seven heavens, and he favored the 7th one over the rest. Allah has created the stars and the planets, and he favored planet earth over the others. Allah (subahaanahu wa ta'ala) has revealed over 6000 verses, and he favored Ayathul Kursi over the others. And Allah (subahaanahu wa ta'ala) has sent hundreds of Messengers and Prophets and he favored Rasoolullahi (ﷺ). And Allah (subahaanahu wa ta'ala) has created the days and out of all these days he favored the best day, which is the day of Arafah. For this reason, a Jewish man went to Umar ibn Al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him). He told him, 'Ya Ameerul M'umineen (O leader of all the believers) there's a verse in your book, which you recite. If this verse were to be revealed to us, the Jews, we would take that day as a holiday, as a festival.' Umar Ibn Al Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him), he realized there are over 6000 verses in the Quran, 'Which one are you talking about?' He told them, that verse where Allah says... 'Today, I have perfected your religion, completed my favors upon you, and I have approved and I am satisfied for Islam to be your religion.' Umar Ibn Al-Khattab told him, 'I know exactly when and where this verse was revealed. This verse (which completed the Shariah of Islam) was revealed on the day of Arafah, on a Friday.' SubahaanAllah! Look at the value of Arafah.
In another hadith, Rasoolullahi (ﷺ) said...'Allah took the covenant, the covenant from the back of Adam (alayhissalaam) in N'aman.' What's N'aman? In Arafah. Allah took the covenant in Arafah. And I'll explain what's the covenant in the following few words. 'And from his back, from his loins (l-o-i-n-s) he extracted his offspring's.' So YOU were there, amongst the ones that were extracted, I was there, the prophets were there, the musicians were there, and with all respect, all these rappers which you can think about, the non-Muslims...like Lil Wayne...people of this category, they were all there, Fir'aun was there. And Allah addressed all of us and He said, 'Am I not your Lord?' and we all said, 'O yes Allah, we testify that you are our Lord.' Look at this covenant, which we all valued, it was done in Arafah. SubahaanAllah! Look at the value of Arafah. You know now why Allah values that day? The day of Arafah? So if the Jewsih man valued that day, If Allah (subahaanahu wa ta'ala) valued that day, then how should be our reactions and our emotions during that day?
Wassalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaathuhu

“I bear witness that there is no deity but Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and messenger”
By this phrase the ex-member of Geert Wilders’s right-wing anti-Islam Freedom Party, Arnoud van Doorn, surprisingly declared his conversion to Islam.
Via his account on the famous social networking site,Twitter, Arnoud announced in Dutch his‘Nieuwe start’ (New start) as a Muslim. The news was confirmed in Dutch news as well.
The news is one of the latest breaking in the Netherlands.
Till the end of 2011, Arnoud van Doorn was a member of the fiery, far-right, anti-Islam, anti-immigration Partij voor de Vrijheid (PVV) Dutch party.
On February 27, 2013, Arnoud posted a tweet in Arabic declaring his Shahadah (Testimony of Faith): Ashhadu an-la ilaha illallah, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan abduhu wa rasuluhu (I bear witness that there is no deity but Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and messenger).
The phrase is known as the First Pillar of Islam that in order for a person to be a Muslim this conviction is firstly needed.
Given his previous explicit views on Islam, Arnoud’s story was a shock to many who doubted and harshly criticized the announcement, which is still a subject of debate on twitter. In another tweet, he expressed his grief and discomfort with ‘the many hateful comments on social media’.
Arnoud account was deluged with hundreds of followers and positive comments backing and congratulating his choice. To them he posted a late tweet in both English and Arabic expressing his gratitude: ‘Thanks for all the support!’
In face of strong attacks on Twitter, Arnoud declined to comment on the reasons or circumstances behind his conversion, confirming that the choice is his own and that his religion was ‘a matter of privacy’.
He just stated that more details about his conversion will be released soon.
And it is…
In an interview with Al-Jazeera.net, Doorn made it quite certain confirming the truth of his conversion, and thus removing the spreading doubts about it.
‘Anyone who knows me closely can just predict the decision. For more than a year now I have been learning deeply about Islam through books and talks.
‘No doubt, other than those close, many are shocked by the decision, particularly those who know of my anti-Islam stands. And this is why they are questioning it.’

1. He was born an orphan.
His father died without knowing he had a son, and Muhammad was farmed out to Beduin foster parents for the first five years of his life, returning to his mother in Mecca for only a year until she also died. The 6-year-old was left on the margins -- an outsider within his own society. He was put to work as a camel boy on the trade caravans to Damascus, and though he eventually made his way up to become a business agent, could never take his place in the world for granted.
2. He married up -- and for love.
The widowed Khadija was 40, he was 25, and since she was his employer, it was she who proposed to him. Some scholars have assumed that the "wealthy widow" syndrome was at work here, but early accounts indicate a marriage of mutual love and respect -- a monogamous one that lasted 24 years until her death. He'd mourn her until his own death 13 years later.
His nine late-life marriages were mainly means of diplomatic alliance and of securing his base, as was customary for any leader of the time. It's striking that though he'd had five children with Khadija (four daughters, and a son who died in infancy), he'd have none with any of the later wives.
3. His first reaction to becoming a prophet? Doubt and despair.
He was terrified by the first Quranic revelation, which happened on a mountain just outside Mecca in the year 610, when he was 40. In his own reported words, the pain was so intense that he thought he was dying. Convinced that he was either delusional or possessed, since it seemed impossible that someone like him could be a prophet, his first impulse when he found himself still alive was to try to finish the job himself and leap off the mountain to his death.
4. He led an early form of Occupy Wall Street.
His message constituted a radical protest against the corruption and arrogance of the Meccan elite. As both a pilgrimage and trading hub, the city had combined piety and profit to become a kind of seventh-century bull market. Muhammad's ongoing revelations demanded social and economic justice, and this provoked intense opposition from the city's rulers (as did his outrage at the preference for sons over daughters and the ensuing practice of female infanticide). The intent was reform, but those in power saw it as a subversive call for revolution.
5. He was a pacifist -- at first.
For 12 years, he took a proto-Gandhian stance of passive resistance to organized harassment of him and his small group of followers in Mecca -- "these nobodies" as his opponents called them. The Quranic revelations constantly urged him to "reply to foolish mockery with words of peace," to "pay no attention," and to "turn your face away" -- words one sometimes wishes more of his followers heeded today. When the assaults became physical as well as verbal, he refused to fight back or to allow his followers to do so. In the year 622, the attacks culminated in a concerted attempt on his life, forcing him into exile in Medina, 200 miles to the north.
His eventual decision to take up arms in exile was highly ambivalent - the result of political pressure as he assumed political as well as spiritual leadership. In fact the first of the three battles he'd lead against Mecca began as much by miscalculation as by intent. Yet even after his home city accepted his leadership in a negotiated surrender and welcomed him back -- the outsider transformed within eight years into the ultimate insider -- he'd never return to live there, but would stay in Medina.
6. He knew how to say he was wrong.
He acknowledged his own fallibility, most notably in the now infamous case of "the Satanic verses," when he tried to mend the rift between himself and his opponents by acknowledging their totem gods as intercessors with the one supreme god. When he realized that he'd been tempted into betraying his principles and that there could be "no partners with God," he had the courage and integrity to publicly declare his mistake.
7. His tragic failure came at the end.
He died without designating a successor. In the absence of a son, many thought it crucial that he make his wishes unequivocally clear, but though his final illness lasted 10 days (the duration and symptoms seem to indicate bacterial meningitis), he never did so. Ironically, the prophet of unity -- one god, one people -- thus paved the way for the divisiveness between Sunni and Shiite that persists today.

1. Pada malamnya bulan kelihatan seperti separuh jafnah (jafnah; bekas makanan berbentuk bulat seperti pinggan besar atau talam)” (Soheh Muslim, 1170/222).
2. Malamnya tenang, tenteram dan sentosa (Al-Jami’ as-Saghier; 7728, menurut as-Suyuti; hasan. Musnad Ahmad; 22765, hasan).
3. Malamnya bersih dan terang di mana seolah-olah pada malam itu terdapat cahaya bulan yang menerangi, menenggelamkan cahaya-cahaya bintang (Soheh Ibnu Hibban, 3688, menurut Syeikh Syu’aib al-Arnaut; hadis soheh bisyawahidihi. Musnad Imam Ahmad; 22765, hasan).
4. Udaranya tidak terlalu panas, tidak terlalu sejuk (Soheh Ibnu Hibban, 3688, hadis soheh bisyawahidihi. Al-Jami’ as-Saghier; 7727, 7728, menurut as-Suyuti; hasan).
5. Tidak ada lontaran dari bintang pada malam itu hinggalah pagi (Al-Jami’ as-Saghier; 7727, hasan. Musnad Imam Ahmad; 22765, hasan).
6. Malamnya tidak berawan, tiada hujan dan tiada angin (Al-Jami’ as-Saghier; 7727). Menurut penjelasan al-Munawi; maksudnya ialah tidak bersangatan awan, hujan dan anginnya (tiada ribut) (Faidhul Qadier).
7. Pada paginya matahari muncul dengan cahaya yang lemah, sekata, berwarna kemerahan dan tanpa sinaran/pancaran yang menyucuk mata (Al-Jami’ as-Saghier; 7727, 7728, hasan. Musnad Imam Ahmad; 22765, hasan. Soheh Muslim; 762/220).
Namun yang penting pada malam al-qadar (lailatul qadar) ialah beramal pada malam tersebut. Berkata Imam al-Munawi; “Orang yang tidak dapat melihat tanda, tidak mesti dia tidak mendapat malam tersebut. Boleh jadi seorang yang bangun beribadah di malam itu, ia hanya dikurniakan Allah kesempatan beribadah, tanpa dapat melihat sebarang tandanya. Orang itu di sisi Allah lebih baik dan lebih mulia daripada orang yang hanya melihat tanda sahaja (tetapi tidak beribadah di malam tersebut)” (Faidhul Qadier; 7728).
