Ms. Ashley, 28, converted in 2007 after she noticed her colleagues praying at work and began to ask questions about Islam.


One of her co-workers told her to Google the most influential person in the world, and the search results came back with pages on the Prophet Mohammed.
Ms Ashley why i converted to Islam

"I am spending Eid with Muslim girlfriends, taking a road trip or traveling somewhere," says Ms. Ashley, who works for the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and volunteers for the Palestinian Children's Relief Fund.

Growing up in a ski resort town in Canada meant she had little knowledge of Islam before she arrived in Dubai in 2006.

"Many thought I was crazy because they had negative images of the Middle East but I didn't listen," Ms. Ashley says.

"Islam is a simple way of life for all mankind and not just for Arabs. I want people to know how wonderfully women are treated and many other positive things."

 Abortion is forbidden in Islam whether it be in the earlier stages of pregnancy or otherwise

First of all, let me remind all of us that we cannot obey ANYONE when it comes to any disobedience to ALLAH. What I mean is if your husband or parents request you to do something which goes against ALLAH and HIS MESSENGER, you must decline by reminding them about what ALLAH and HIS Messenger said. That's the command of ALLAH and HIS MESSENGER.

What Islam say about Abortion.
Abortion is forbidden in Islam whether it be in the earlier stages of pregnancy or otherwise. The extent of sin incurred varies according to the stage of pregnancy, so that less sin would be incurred if the abortion took place during the early stages, while it becomes increasingly haram (unlawful) as the pregnancy advances. When the pregnancy reaches 120 days old, abortion becomes totally forbidden and is deemed a form of murder that results in compensation becoming liable. This compensation is equal in value to 213 grams of gold, and it is given to the heir who did not participate in the abortion (i.e., brother/sister or grandparent(s), etc., according to the laws of inheritance). 
However, the only condition under which abortion is allowed is when there is an actual threat to the life of the mother confirmed by an official medical report that if the pregnancy advances any further, the mother may die. 

“While Islam permits preventing pregnancy for valid reasons, it does not allow doing violence to it once it occurs. 
Muslim jurists have agreed unanimously that after the fetus is completely formed and has been given a soul, abortion is haram. It is also a crime, the commission of which is prohibited to the Muslim because it constitutes an offense against a complete, living human being. Jurists insist that the payment of blood money (diya) becomes incumbent if the baby is aborted alive and then died, while a fine of lesser amount is to be paid if it is aborted dead.  

However, there is one exceptional situation. If, say the jurists, after the baby is completely formed, it is reliably shown that the continuation of the pregnancy would necessarily result in the death of the mother, then, in accordance with the general principle of the Shari`ah, that of choosing the lesser of two evils, abortion must be performed. The reason for this is that the mother is the origin of the fetus; moreover, her life is well-established, with duties and responsibilities, and she is also a pillar of the family. It would not be possible to sacrifice her life for the life of a fetus which has not yet acquired a personality and which has no responsibilities or obligations to fulfill. 

Imam al-Ghazzali makes a clear distinction between contraception and abortion, saying that contraception is not like abortion. Abortion is a crime against an existing being. It follows from this that there are stages of existence. The first stages of existence are the settling of the semen in the womb and its mixing with the secretions of the woman. Then come the next gestational stage. Disturbing the pregnancy at this stage is a crime. When it develops further and becomes a lump, aborting it is a greater crime. When it acquires a soul and its creation is completed, the crime becomes more grievous. The crime reaches a maximum seriousness when it is committed after it (the fetus) is separated (from the mother) alive.”   *_May ALLAH keep guiding us all and protect us from any satanic influences_*. Aameen Yaa Shahid !!!

This Hadith found in Bukhari and many others Hadith's in many numbers of times that describes the importance of this hadith.


Narrated Ibn 'Umar (RA). Prophet Muhammad (salallahualahiwasallam) said:-

"Amongst the trees, there is a tree, the leaves of which do not fall and is like a Muslim. Tell me the name of that tree." Everybody started thinking about the trees of the desert areas. And I thought of the date-palm tree but felt shy to answer the others companions of Prophet then asked, "What is that tree, O Allah's Apostle (salallahualahiwasallam) ?
 " He replied, "It is the date-palm tree."
Commentary:

 Ibn Umar(Ra), when he was just a young boy, says that one day he was sitting with senior Sahaba al Kiram; Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) asked the Sahaba, "which tree is like a Muslim and whose leaves do not fall?" The senior Sahaba could not immediately guess about this tree, Ibn Umar(Ra) says that though he was young, he thought that it was the date tree but he did not dare to open his mouth in presence of senior Sahaba, (Ra) then Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) himself told them that it was the date tree.

Similarities between a Muslim and the date tree...Many Ulema have suggested many similarities , such as .,Both are straight and upright and resemble in Istiqamat (استقامت) (Enduringness) Both have very deep roots, the roots of the faith ofa Muslim (إيمان) are very deep in his Qalb (Heart). 
Important Hadith Which tree is like a Muslim ?

other Reports:- It is reported in Tirmidhi , Nasai and Ibn Hibban on the authority of Anas (Ra) that once Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) recited the verse:-
كَلِمَةً طَيِّبَةً كَشَجَرَةٍ طَيِّبَةٍ أَصْلُهَا ثَابِتٌ وَفَرْعُهَا فِي السَّمَاءِ
A goodly word as a goodly tree, whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches (reach) to the sky (14:24)...!!!

Then he (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, "it is date tree".

Each and every part of a date tree is useful, like its fruits, both ripe as well as unripe, Giving its fruit at all times, It is said that it means by day and by night. And they say that describes the believer as a tree that always has fruits during summer and winter, by night and by day. This is the parable of the believer whose good works ascend to heaven by day and by night and at all times,Dates can be consumed in both fresh and dried forms.leaves and stemetc. 

It is also used for medicinal purposes,it leaves is also used for shade,even with his dry leaves it is used for creating pots,baskits,and the bottom of the huts.

Similarly every state of a Muslim is useful for him.His eating, drinking, sleeping, walking, earning livelihood are all counted as worship, hence useful for him.Some say that both have male and female genders.Some say that the date tree resembles a man because if its upper part is cut it becomes dead.Some say that both have the attribute of love.

On the other hand we have came to know that The teacher should test his students By getting this Hadith.

the teacher prophet Muhammad (salallahualahiwasallam) should off and on test with his students (companions), put questions before them in a little difficult way. By this the teacher gets an idea of the capability of his students.

Sometimes a junior knows more than his senior.Ibn Umar(Ra) was just ten years old that time and he thought about the right answer whereas it did not strike the senior companions (Ra).

When we departed, after listening to the Hadith I (Ibn Umar) said to his father Umar(Ra), by Allah! I thought that it was the date tree.'
He said, `Why did you not speak then?' 

I said, `I saw you were silent and I felt shy to say anything.'
Umar said, `Had you said it, it would have been more precious to me than such things (i.e.,if whole Camels of Arab put on one side and your answer on one side).'' your answer is more beloved to me my son.
From this single Hadith's we get to know the basis of other  different Hadith's such as:-Narrated Sa'd bin Abi Waqqas(Ra):- Allah's Apostle (salallahualahiwasallam)said, "You will be rewarded for whatever you spend for Allah's sake even if it were
a morsel which you put in your wife's mouth."


Narrated Abu Mas'ud(Ra):- The Prophet (salallahualahiwasallam)said, "If a man spends on his family
(with the intention of having a reward from Allah) sincerely for Allah's sake then it is a (kind of) alms-giving in reward for him.


Aa’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her), narrated that Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:- “Nothing befalls a believer, a(prick of a) thorn or more than that, but Allah will raise him one degree in status thereby, or erase a bad deed.”
 

The Messenger of Allah(sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said:-,"Strange is the affair of the mu'min (the believer) verily all his affairs are good for him. If something pleasing befalls him he thanks (Allah) and it becomes better for him. And if something harmful befalls him he is patient (sabir) and it becomes better for him. And this is only for the mu'min."
(All are Narrated by al-Bukhaari)
 

Abu Dharr(Ra) narrated that some people from among the companions of the Prophet (peace andblessings of Allaah be upon him) said to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him):-“O Messenger of Allaah, the rich people will get more reward. They pray as we pray, and theyfast as we fast, but they give in charity from their excess wealth.” He said, “Has not Allaah given you things with which you can give charity? Every tasbeehah
saying ‘Subhaan Allaah (Glory be to Allaah)’ is a charity. Every Takbeerah saying ‘Allaahu akbar(Allaah is Most Great) is a charity.


 EveryTahmeedah saying ‘Al-hamdu-Lillaah(praise be to Allaah)’ is a charity. Every Tahleelah saying ‘Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah(there is no god but Allaah) is a charity. Enjoining what is good is a charity. Forbidding what is evil is a charity. Having intercourse (with one’s wife) is a charity.” They said, “O Messenger of Allaah, if one of us fulfils his desire, is there reward in that?” He said, “Do you not see that if he does it in a haraam way he will havethe burden of sin? So if he does it in a halaal way, he will have a reward for that.”.
Ref:- (Narrated by Muslim).

#Narrated that ‘Ali (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:-I heard the Messenger of Allaah (peaceand blessings of Allaah be upon him) say:- “There is no Muslim who visits a (sick) Muslim early in the morning but seventy thousand angels send blessings upon him until evening comes, and if he visits him in the evening, seventy thousand angels send blessings upon him until morning comes, and he will have a garden in Paradise.”
Ref:- (al-Tirmidhi)...!!!

#Abu Dharr (Ra) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (salallahualahiwasallam)said :-"Your smiling in the face of your brother is charity, commanding good and forbidding evil is charity, your giving directions to a man lost in the land is charity for you. Your seeing for a man with bad sight and helping him by giving direction is a charity for you, your removal of a rock, a thorn or a bone from the road is charity for you. Your pouring what remains from your bucket into the bucket of your brother is charity for you."
Ref:-(al-Trimidhi).
 

conclusion :- Permissible actions may become acts of worship, if there is a sincere intention behind it to be done only for the sake of Allah and according to the Shariah(religious law) and by  following Qur'an and Sunna (lifestyle) of prophet Muhammad(salallahualahiwasallam) we can get innumerable reward from Allah (subhanahowatala) in every way such as Eating, Drinking, keeping the family ties of kinship,smiling, Islamic greetings,spending on children's and wife,taking cares of one's parents, having patience in adverse situations, thanking Allah on getting some blessings and also enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil.... All these things also done by disbelievers but they don't get reward from almighty Allah(subhanahowatala) but being a Muslims Alhamdulillahi we get a tons of reward from almighty Allah (subhanahowatala) and it helps in building our Akhira (hearafter) and to achieve our final goal (destination) jannah.
Thanks for reading!
share it to your dear ones so they could attain reward by knowing being a Muslims is the greatest bounty of Allah subhanahowatala.

From when I was a child, so many things in Christianity did not made sense to me

From when I was a child, so many things in Christianity did not made sense to me. Keep in mind, I am the granddaughter of a Pentecostal preacher, so the church and Jesus was drilled into my brain. I remember asking my bible teacher at 7-years-old, Why do we celebrate the birth of Christ on December 25th? (When I asked this question, I recently learned  from watching national geographic, that It was scientifically proven that Jesus was not born on Christmas.)

I also asked like, how is the holy trinity one person and why was the trinity created long after Jesus died? why do we pray to Jesus and not God?

When I was about 14, I stopped praying to Jesus and prayed directly to God. When I was around people and family members who would say "dear Jesus, thank you for this and that." I would say under my breath, "Dear God." I would feel bad that people were not praying directly to God.

Aside from this, I was really active in the church, I didn't only go to church on holidays. I read the bible, taught at vacation bible school, sang at church. I was also in a church youth group. I went went to a church leadership camp every summer up until I graduated high school.

Granddaughter of A Pentecostal Preacher Converts to Islam

Still, if you would have told me when I was 16 I would be a Muslim in the future, I would never believe you. Before I went to college, I thought all of the bad and stereotypical things about Muslims, since I never met one. The only thing that I knew about Muslims is what I saw on the news.

When I went to college, I then started to meet many people different from different cultures and religions. Many of my friends were Muslim and were so nice. Since I was very close minded, when I first went to college, these people really opened my eyes. I remember saying to myself, "there is no way these people could be so nice and be Muslim." I wanted to prove that they "were the good ones" and that their religion was as bad as the media said.

The first thing that sparked me to really start looking into Islam was when one of my friends said, "we have very similar religions and the same prophets." They told me the story of prophet Noah and the ark. I said, "we have the same story in the bible."

So, I started looking into the religion by researching the similarities between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. I practiced praying and fasting, my second year in college, just to try it out. I wanted to really experience life through my friend's eyes.

Then I decided myself, to read the Quran. I was at a fellow converts house for Iftar (break fast during Ramadan) and I asked her if I could borrow her Quran, to read. Later that night, I opened the Quran after i got home, I started reading it, and my heart became full of love and I saw the light of God calling me to Islam. It is a feeling I cannot even explain.

This was during Ramadan of 2013. I didn't have interest in converting when I read that Quran. I didn't convert right away because that would be a huge step for me, with what my family and friends would say. It took me 6 months after the first time I read the Quran, for me to take shahada (my declaration of faith). I tried to get people to come with me to a mosque to say the shahadah but no one would come. So, after I converted, only a few people knew about it. I was too scared to tell my parents.

 admitting it was the last religion she thought she’d take up when she started exploring her spirituality.


SUSAN Carland has opened up in a new interview about her conversion to Islam, admitting it was the last religion she thought she’d take up when she started exploring her spirituality.

Speaking in the July issue of The Australian Women’s Weekly, the media personality and wife of this year’s Gold Logie winner Waleed Aly detailed her decision to become a Muslim.

Raised a Christian, she switched to the Baptist Church as a teenager but found that didn’t satisfy her quest for spiritual exploration.

At 17, she started to question her religious beliefs.“Was it because I genuinely believed it to be true or was it because it was what I was raised to believe?” she recalled.
Susan Carland journey to islam

As she explored different religions, Carland was at first adamant Islam was not of interest. “I thought, why would anyone want to be part of a barbaric, outdated, sexist religion?”

Two years later, at the age of 19, she became a Muslim. In those two years, she’d immersed herself in books and joined a Muslim women’s group at university to make sure the religion was right for her.“I found the emphasis on social justice appealing; I noticed there was a real concern for the vulnerable people in society,” she said.

Converting did pose its own set of challenges — Carland said her mother had “hesitations,” but things are “great” between the pair now.

Carland converted to Islam pre-9/11, and has now watched her religion become closely linked to global terrorism in many people’s perceptions.

“Ninety-nine per cent of what people see about Muslims in the media is negative,” she says. “As consumers, we need to be switched on.”

Carland has her own way of fighting religious prejudice: In October last year, she tweeted that she would donate $1 to charity for “each hate-filled tweet I get from trolls”. There were plenty.

So far, she’s donated about $4000 to UNICEF, along with the message: “The needy children thank you, haters!”

Accepting his Gold Logie award last month, Carland’s husband was quick to shower her with praise.
“If she had my job she’d be much better at it than me,” he said.

“She’s sharper, wittier, funnier and infinitely more charming and likeable and I’m really glad she doesn’t have my job because otherwise I definitely wouldn’t have it.”

*Not facing the door when seeking permission to enter
كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم إِذَا أَتَى بَابَ قَوْمٍ لَمْ يَسْتَقْبِلِ الْبَابَ مِنْ تِلْقَاءِ وَجْهِهِ وَلَكِنْ مِنْ رُكْنِهِ الأَيْمَنِ أَوِ الأَيْسَرِ وَيَقُولُ ‏ “‏ السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمُ السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ وَذَلِكَ أَنَّ الدُّورَ لَمْ يَكُنْ عَلَيْهَا يَوْمَئِذٍ سُتُورٌ
Abdullah ibn Busr: When the Messenger of Allaah came to some people’s door, he didn’t face it squarely, but faced the right or left corner, and said: Aslaam Alaykum! Asalaam Alaykum!
That was because there were no curtains on the doors of the house at that time.
The ruling in knocking doors of other people's

Source: Saheeh Sunan Abi Dawud (no. 5186)
Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad: This is from the beautiful manners and honorable characteristics!
That is: a person not facing the door (when desiring to enter another’s house) because facing the door will make a person see inside the house.
However, if he’s facing to the right or left, then he’ll be far from his eye seeing what the owner of the house doesn’t want that he sees or be shown.
Source: Sharh Sunan Abi Dawud (no. 588)

Messenger of Allah (Sallallähu alaihi wa sallam) said, "Begging is not permissible but for one of the three (classes) of persons:

Begging is not permissible but for one of the three (classes) of persons

  1. One who has incurred debt, for him begging is permissible till he pays that off, after which he must stop it.
  2. A man whose property has been destroyed by a calamity which has smitten him, for him begging is permissible till he gets what will support life, or will provide him reasonable subsistence.
  3. A person who has been smitten by poverty.

...besides these three (every other reason) for begging is forbidden, and one who engages in such consumes that what is forbidden."
Book: Sahih Muslim 2271

Then she (Aisha) would say (to the women), ‘Eat from it for indeed I heard the Messenger of Allah [peace be upon him] say: “Talbinah is a relaxation for the heart of the sick person and it removes some of the sorrow”.’ [Bukhari 479/9, Book of Food, Chapter of Talbinah]
