Founder’s Corner: Way out after one has done excessive Wrong

By Dr. Emdad Khan

We are human being, the best creation of our creator, the Almighty God. Allah swt has given mankind an option to do good or do evil.

We are temped by our own desires or the provocation of the cursed devil, Shaitan, and do evil things. But we have a way out, and Allah swt loves when we come back to Him in repentance.

Islam Facilitates Citizenship in Action!

A Moment with Our Prophet, Muhammad (S)

By Imam Zijad Delic

Day 254: Islam Facilitates Citizenship in Action!

It was narrated by Jabir (r) that the Prophet (S) said: “The believer is friendly and befriended, for there is no goodness in one who is neither friendly, nor befriended. The best of people are those who are most beneficial to people.”

عَنْ جَابِرٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الْمُؤْمِنُ يَأْلَفُ وَيُؤْلَفُ وَلا خَيْرَ فِيمَنْ لا يَأْلَفُ وَلا يُؤْلَفُ وَخَيْرُ النَّاسِ أَنْفَعُهُمْ لِلنَّاسِ

By Dr. Emdad Khan

1) Migration of early Muslims and our own migration

سُوۡرَةُ التّوبَة(in Quran

ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَهَاجَرُواْ وَجَـٰهَدُواْ فِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ بِأَمۡوَٲلِهِمۡ وَأَنفُسِہِمۡ أَعۡظَمُ دَرَجَةً عِندَ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ وَأُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ هُمُ ٱلۡفَآٮِٕزُونَ (٢٠) يُبَشِّرُهُمۡ رَبُّهُم بِرَحۡمَةٍ۬ مِّنۡهُ وَرِضۡوَٲنٍ۬ وَجَنَّـٰتٍ۬ لَّهُمۡ فِيہَا نَعِيمٌ۬ مُّقِيمٌ (٢١) خَـٰلِدِينَ فِيہَآ أَبَدًا‌ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عِندَهُ ۥۤ أَجۡرٌ عَظِيمٌ۬ (٢٢)

Surah Al-Tawba9: 20-22

Those who believe and have left their homes and striven with their wealth and their lives in Allah’s way are of much greater status in Allah’s sight. These are they who are successful (20) Their Lord giveth them good tidings of mercy from Him, and acceptance, and Gardens where enduring pleasure will be theirs; (21) There they will abide forever. Indeed! with Allah there is immense reward. (22)

Founder’s Corner: Federal Elections and Immigrants

By Dr. Emdad Khan

We are primarily immigrants and busy with getting established in Canada.

We are busy with our jobs, family, and children’s education.

Many of us do not  have a pleasant experience with elections back home. But Canada election is fair and transparent.

It is useful to note that many south Asians are gradually participating in politics, and we see in federal, provincial and city elections, they are participating and getting elected. Gradually, Arab immigrants are also joining politics.
