MV: This post is one of the few we have on Food and Drink in Islam. Food is a big part of Halal and Haram. It is important and ethical to know what food give you sin and what food do not. Plain and simple if you stay away form the Haram food, you will stay away from the Hell fire. Food and drink affect our health, growth, and state of mind. Islam has given regulations about our food and drink. Islam aims to establish a healthy and moral society. It allows all wholesome and pure things to be taken … Continue reading Islamic Aspects on Food and Drink
MV: Unfortunately in these days I hear Muslims cursing a lot. (Especially those up in the ghettos) But many Muslims don’t realize that cursing and slandering is forbidden in Islam and if they know then they often question why? Well to start off, it makes our Muslim Ummah (Community) look bad! Its a horrible way of showing that Muslims are kind especially in places such as schools. Lets not to say that I have never used fowl language before, but I really try to avoid using them and I feel bad if I use them. Sometimes you may feel angry … Continue reading Why Cursing is Forbidden in Islam?

MV: In Islam riba or usury is prohibited for many reasons. You can find those reasons by reading what is below or you can get it from my source islamic-world.net Riba is usury. Usury is commonly understood as the lending of money at illegally high rates of interest. But riba, or usury, in Islam is the lending of money on interest, regardless of the rate of interest! When money is lent on interest, then money by itself, independent of any labor or effort, or the assumption of any risk, increases over time. The increase is realized through the exploitation of … Continue reading The Prohibition of Riba (Usury) by Moulana Imran Hosein
MV: Oh yes, this is something, that I just can not help stopping but Inshallah after reading this, “Following is the translation of an important lecture in Urdu by Mufti Taqi Usmani on the harms of arguments and disputation. Translators were Syed Junaid Hassan and his father, with permission from Abu Turab In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful Notes: Important translations of words used often in this document: Allah – God: one; infinitely: unlimited, independent, not subject to any laws within and beyond human comprehension Haqq – (~ truth / ~ righteousness), or (~ true … Continue reading Harms of Argumentation and Disputation
MV: In Islam, we are to not to become friends with people of other religions because it states in the Quran, “O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he among you that turns to them for friendship is of them.” (Al-Ma’idah 5:51) So doesn’t this mean we should stay in our homes and try to not make contact with people of other books as fear of becoming their friends……..Wrong! In our Muslim ummah (community) this line is vastly misinterpreted and used … Continue reading Friendship Between Muslims and Other Religions?

Backbiting means to say bad things about a person when he/she is not present. It is a very bad habit which Allah has strongly condemned in the Quran. Allah says: O you who believe! Avoid suspicion as much (as possible), for suspicion in some cases is a sin: and spy not on each other, nor speak ill of each other behind their backs. Would any of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? Nay, would you abhor it. But fear Allah, for Allah is Oft-Returning, Most-Merciful. (Al-Hujarat 49:12) In this verse Allah stresses his disgust with backbiting … Continue reading Backbiting and cursing.

Either ways the post bellow contains of reasons why Smoking can really be harmful and what it can do to us, as a Muslim. MV: Everyone, Today i will be talking about harmful and beneficial acts.

:UPDATE: I realized that just because the snacks do not contain pork does not entirely mean its halal (could contain non-zabah animals) so knowing this I asked MR’s creator (Amir Sahib) and he told me to search “yasir qadhi of mice and men” on google and read his article, so I stumbled upon this and it basicaly clears it up. MV: Mashallah! For many of us that live in non-Islamic countries this is big news. Many of the flavors of my (and many other people probably)favorite brand were consumed to have pork in them so they were announced haraam. I … Continue reading Frito Lay releases list of products with no Pork Enzymes
