    The Prophet taught that all the faithful were equal. men and women were equals. I am waiting for Sunni man or another Muslim to explain why that simply is not true anywhere in the Islamic world outside of a few places in Western Countries.

    The cause of the miserable of the Muslims is due to their having left the clear and pure religion of Islaam. That humiliation has entered into their ranks due to the very same reason. That the sicknesses and diseases in the hearts of the Muslims bring about worldly calamities. In addition to this, being far from the Sunnah and the multiplication of the groups of innovation is another cause for weakness and humiliation. Fighting against these weaknesses is to be upon methodology of the Book and the Sunnah. A detailed explanation of the numerous Hadeeth which mention the prophecies about the downfall of the Ummah.

    A Fundamental Principle

    We should know that the Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam was sent by Allaah to the whole of mankind, to explain and to make clear to them all that which is good and brings one closer to Allaah; and also to explain to them all that is evil and would distance a person from Allaah. The reason for this being, that life - with all its variety, colours and manifestations - is built upon two important matters:-

    Firstly: Knowing the good - in order to follow it.

    Secondly: Knowing the evil - in order to keep away from it.

    So, for example, in the matter of Tawheed of Allaah (to single out Allaah alone for worship) - the crux of Islaam - it is built eeman (faith) in Allaah and the rejection of shirk [2], kufr [3] and taaghoot [4]. Eeman in Allaah is good, whilst belief in at-taaghoot is evil. Thus, it is a must to recognise that which is good in order to follow it, whilst knowing also that which is evil so as to keep away from it. Likewise, in the matter of da'wah (calling) to Allaah, which is built upon commanding the good (ma'roof) and forbidding the evil (munkar). To command the ma'roof is good and is to be followed, whilst munkar is evil and is to be shunned. Likewise, in ittibaa' (following of) the prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, which is built upon following his Sunnah and turning away from bida' (religious innovations). Sunnah is good and is to be followed, whilst bida' is evil and is to be shunned.

    Muhammad - Prophet of Islam

    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]The prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam has informed us of this in the Hadeeth of Hudayfah radiallaahu 'anhu in which he said: "The people used to ask the Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam about the good, and I used to ask him about the evil out of fear that it would reach me. So I asked the Messenger of Allaah: "O Messenger of Allaah, we were living in ignorance and evil, then Allaah brought this good to us. So will there be any evil after this good?" He replied: "Yes." I then asked: "Will there be any good after this evil?" He replied: "Yes, but it will be tainted." So I asked: "What will be its taint?" He replied: "A people who guide others to other than my way, you will approve of some of their actions and disapprove of others." I further enquired: "Then is there any evil after this good?" He said: "Yes! Callers at the gates of Hell - whoever responds to their call, they will be thrown into the fire." I then said: " O Messenger of Allaah! Describe them to us." He said: "They will be from our people and speak our language." I asked: "So what do you order me to do if that reaches me?" He said: "Stick to the Jamaa'ah (the united body) of the Muslims and their Imaam (ruler)." I further asked: "What if they have neither jamaa'ah or an Imaam?" He said: "Then keep away from all those sects, even if you have to bite upon the roots of a tree, until death reaches you whilst you are in that state."

    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] A Brief Explanation[/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] (You will approve of some of their actions and diaprove of others.)[/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] Meaning: You will accept the Sunnah from them and reject the bid'ah from them. [/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif](Yes! Callers at the gates of Hell.) [/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]Meaning: Callers inviting to the various deviated schools of thought which will lead their followers to the hellfire.[/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] (Whoever responds to their call, they will be thrown into the fire.)[/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] Meaning: Whoever obeys the callers of innovation and misguidance then his end will be the fire, because the Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam has said: "Every innovation is misguidance and every misguidance is in the fire." [10] So the innovation is in the fire along with its companion. Whoever obeys the callers of innovation will be led to the Fire and whosoever obeys the callers of Sunnah will be led to Paradise. [/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif](Stick to the jamaa'ah of the Muslims and their Imaam) [/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]Meaning: Stick to the Islaamic Empire if they have on. So you migrate to it and live amongst the Muslims and do not remain in the lands of the disbelievers. And you give the bay'ah (oath of allegiance) to the leader of the Muslims - if they have one. [/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif](I asked: What if they neither have a jamaa'ah or an Imaam?) [/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]Meaning: Like today (Then keep away from all those sects.) Meaning: Keep away from the callers of misguidance and (religious) innovation, neither being of them, nor aiding or supporting them. [/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif](Even if you have to bite upon the roots of a tree.) [/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]Meaning: Adhere to the Sunnah and cling to its foundations. The meaning of this is not remain in your house and abandon the calling to Allaah, nor abandon ordering the good and the prohibiting of evil, since the Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam said "Hold fast to my Sunnah and to the Sunnah of my rightly guided caliphs - cling (lit. bite) to it tightly." [11] And here, in this Hadeeth, he has ordered them to cling (lit. bite) to the roots of a tree. So the (roots of a tree) here means the Sunnah. (Until death reaches you whilst you are in that state.) Meaning: To die in a state of Islaam, as in the saying of Allaah : "And do not die except as a Muslim."[/FONT]


    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] Another Hadeeth which shows love of this world is a reason for ruin, is the Hadeeth of 'Abdullah ibn 'Umar in which he said: The Messenger of Allaah sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam said: "O Muhajiroon!! You may be afflicted with five things. Allaah forbid that you should live to see them. (i) If fornication and adultery should become widespread, then you should know that this has never happened without new diseases befalling the people which their forefathers never suffered. (ii) If people should begin to cheat in weighing out goods, you should realise that this has never happened without a drought and famine befalling the people and their rulers oppressing them. (iii) If people should withhold Zakaah, you should realise that this has never happened without the rain being stopped from falling; and were it not for the sake of the animals, it would never rain again. (iv) If people should break their covenant with Allaah and His Messenger, you should realise that this has never happened without Allaah sending an enemy against them to take some of their possessions by force. (v) If the leaders do not rule according to the book of Allaah, you should realise that this has never happened without Allaah making them into groups and making them fight one another."
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]
    [/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] A Brief Explanation[/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] (If fornication and adultery should become widespread, then you should know that this has never happened without new diseases befalling the people which their forefathers never suffered.) [/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]Meaning: If faahishah (evil actions and sexual iniquity) appears in the Ummah and fornication and adultery increases, then it will be accompanied by many strange diseases not known or experienced by those before, like AIDS and Syphilis. Diseases which now cause so much fear in Western societies like America and Europe. Since this faahishah has become widespread in these communities to a well known degree, rather it is considered a sign of their progression. How can this be a sign of advancement? When the animals in the jungle are ashamed to commit what they do and the bare people in Africa and its forests feel too embarrassed. If nakedness was an evidence of progression, then the naked people of the African jungle would be the most advanced!![/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] (If people should begin to cheat in weighing out goods.....)[/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] Meaning: Giving short measure is now a common thing, and is something unlawful. Allaah destroyed a nation - the people of Shu'aib alayhis-salaam - because of this, as they did not show mercy to themselves or to others, so how can Allaah show mercy to them. The prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam said: "Show mercy to one who is upon the earth, and the One above the Sky will show mercy to you." [16][/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] (If people should withhold Zakaah, you should realise that this has never happened without the rain being stopped from falling; and were it not for the sake of the animals, it would never rain again) [/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]Meaning: if it rains, then it is not because of them or the fact they deserve it, but it is because of the animals - as a mercy for them. [/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif](If people should break their covenant with Allaah and His Messenger, you should realise that this has never happened without Allaah sending an enemy against them to take some of their possessions by force) [/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif]For example: When the Muslims neglected the obedience to Allaah, He gave the Jews the power and they took Palestine, and when were negligent about that which they were reminded of, Allaah established the Christians over them and they took Spain; and when they were negligent yet again, Allaah put the Christians in control in Bosnia.[/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] (If the leaders do not rule according to the book of Allaah....)[/FONT]​
    [FONT=Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif] Meaning: when they no longer implement the Laws of Allaah, the Muslims will then fight and kill each other like what occurs in border disputes and so on.

    Some of The Profound Teachings of Prophet Muhammad
    The Profound Teachings of Prophet Muhammad: by Ansar Al-'Adl

    What people have said about Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)






    [FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica][FONT=Verdana,arial]Muhammad, the prophet of Arabia, has fulfilled for his people a role that combines the functions - of a distinguished prophet, statesman, author, and reformer. He has earned for himself as a consequence the respect and reverence of countless people, Muslim and non-Muslim everywhere.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana,arial]While our knowledge of men who filled similar roles from Moses to Zoroaster to Jesus is shrouded with legend, often incomplete and frequently colored, and while the accounts of Muhammad's life and deeds contain their share of incompleteness and coloring, the fact remains that he was the first to live and preach in the full light of history.

    Islam: Beliefs and Observances by Caesar E. Farah


    BIRTH OF THE PROPHET:

    Historian, John William Draper in his well known work, "A History of the Intellectual Development of Europe", observes:

    "Four years after the death of Justinian, 569 A.D., was born at Makkah, in Arabia, the man who, of all men, has exercised the greatest influence upon the human race,"

    The well known British historian, Sir William Muir, in his "Life of Mohammed" adds:

    "Our authorities, all agree in ascribing to the youth of Mohammad a modesty of deportment and purity of manners rare among the people of Makkah... The fair character and honorable bearing of the unobtrusive youth won the approbation of his fellow-citizens; and he received the title, by common consent, of Al-Ameen, the Trustworthy."

    YOUTH OF THE PROPHET:

    James Michener in his well known work, "Islam, The Misunderstood Religion" writes:

    "Orphaned at birth, he was always particularly solicitous of the poor and the needy, the widow and the orphan, the slave and the downtrodden. At twenty he was already a successful business man, and soon became director of camel caravans for a wealthy widow. When he reached twenty-five his employer, recognizing his merit, proposed marriage. Even though she was fifteen years the older, he married her, and as long as she lived remained a devoted husband."

    MESSAGE OF THE PROPHET:

    The celebrated British writer, Thomas Carlyle, in his book On Heroes, Hero-Worship and the Heroic in History-, observes:

    "Ah on: this deep-hearted son of the wilderness with his beaming black eyes and open social deep soul, had other thoughts than ambition. A silent great man; he was one of those who cannot but be in earnest; whom Nature herself has appointed to be sincere. While others walk in formulas and hearsays, contented enough to dwell there, this man could not screen himself in formulas; he was alone with his own soul and the reality of things. The great mystery of Existence, as I said, glared in upon him, with its terrors, with its splendors; no hearsays could hide that unspeakable fact. 'Here am I'; such Sincerity as we name it, has in very truth something of divine. The work of such a man is a voice direct from Nature's own Heart. Men do and must listen to that as to nothing else; all else is wind in comparison."

    MOTIVATION OF THE PROPHET:

    Dr. Marcus Dods, in his work, "Mohammad, Buddah and Christ" writes:

    "Certainly he had two of the most important characteristics of the prophetic order. He saw truth about God which his fellowmen did not see, and he had an irresistible inward impulse to publicize this truth."

    John Davenport in his well known work, "An Apology for Mohammad and the Koran", admits the honesty and sincerity behind Mohammad's claim of being an apostle of God, when he says:

    "It is strongly corroborative of Mohammad's sincerity that the earliest converts of Islam were his bosom friends and the people of his household, who all intimately acquainted with his private life, could not fail to have detected those discrepancies which more or less invariably exist between the pretentions of the hypocritical deceiver and his actions at home."

    COMMITMENT OF THE PROPHET:

    W. Montgomery Watt writes in his "Mohammad at Makkah" :

    "His readiness to undergo persecution for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement - all argue his fundamental integrity. To suppose Muhammad as imposter raises more problems than it solves. Moreover, none of the great figures of history is so poorly appreciated in the West as Muhammad. Thus, not merely must we credit Muhammad with essential honesty and integrity of purpose, if we are to understand him at all: if we are to correct the errors we have inherited from the past ..."

    LEADERSHIP OF THE PROPHET:

    A well known writer, Bosworth Smith, in his well known book "Mohammad and Mohammadanism", adds:

    "Head of the State as well as of the Church, he was Caesar and Pope in one; but he was Pope without Pope's pretensions, Caesar without the legion of Caesar. Without a standing army, without a body-guard, without a palace, without a fixed revenue, if ever any man had the right to say that he ruled by the right divine, it was Mohammad, for he had all the power without its instructions and without its supports."

    THE PROPHET AS
    COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF:

    James A. Michener, in his invaluable work, "Islam: The Misunderstood Religion", observes:

    "...Forced now to fight in defense of the freedom of conscience which he preached, he became an accomplished military leader, Although he repeatedly went into battle outnumbered and out speared as much as five to one, he won some spectacular victories."

    Stanley Lane-Poole, in his work, "The Speeches and Table Talk of the Prophet Mohammad" adds:

    "The day of Mohammad's greatest triumph over his enemies was also the day of his grandest victory over himself. He freely forgave the Koraysh all the years of sorrow and cruel scorn in which they had afflicted him and gave an amnesty to the whole population of Makkah. Four criminals whom justice condemned made up Mohammad's proscription list, when he entered as a conqueror to the city of his bitterest enemies. The army followed his example, and entered quietly and peacefully; no house was robbed, no women insulted. One thing alone suffered destruction. Going to the Kaaba, Mohammad stood before each of the three hundred and sixty idols, and pointed to it with his staff, saying, 'Truth has come and falsehood has fled away!' and at these words his attendants hewed them down, and all the idols and household gods of Makkah and round about were destroyed. It was thus Mohammad entered again his native city, Through all the annals of conquest there is no triumphant entry comparable to this one."
    [/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana,arial]
    HUMILITY OF THE PROPHET:

    Again John Davenport, in "An Apology for Mohammad and the Koran" states:

    "With all that simplicity which is so natural to a great mind, he performed the humblest offices whose homeliness it would be idle to conceal with pompous diction; even while Lord of Arabia, he mended his own shoes and coarse woolen garments. milked the ewes, swept the hearth, and kindled the fire. Dates and water were his usual fare and milk and honey his luxuries. When he traveled he divided his morsel with the servant. The sincerity of his exhortations to benevolence was justified at his death by the exhausted state of his coffers"

    COMPREHENSIVE PERSONALITY OF THE PROPHET:

    Alphonse of Lamartine, in his well known work, "Histoire de la Turquie", observes:

    "if greatness of purpose, smallness of means, and astounding results are the three criteria of human genius, who could dare to compare any great man in modern history with Muhammad? The most famous men created arms, laws and empires only. They founded, if anything at all, no more than material powers which often crumbled away before their eyes. This man moved not only armies, legislations, empires, peoples and dynasties, but millions of men in one-third of the then inhabited world; and more than that, he moved the altars, the gods, the religions, the ideas, the beliefs and the souls. On the basis of a Book, every letter of which has become law, he created a spiritual nationality which blended together peoples of every tongue and of every race. Philosopher, orator, apostle, legislator, warrior, conqueror of ideas, restorer of rational beliefs, a founder of twenty terrestrial empires and one spiritual empire. Of all standards by which human greatness can be measured, we may well ask ... is there any man greater than Mohammed?"

    THE PROPHET AS A HERO:

    K. S. Ramakrishna Rao in his book 'Mohammed: The Prophet of Islam' writes:

    "The personality of Muhammad is most difficult to get the whole truth of it. Only a glimpse of him I can catch. What dramatic succession of picturesque scenes? There is Muhammad the Prophet; there is Muhammad the General; Muhammad the King; Muhammad the Warrior; Muhammad the Businessman; Muhammad the Preacher; Muhammad the Philosopher; Muhammad the Statesman; Muhammad the Orator; Muhammad the Reformer; Muhammad the Refuge of Orphans; Muhammad the Protector of Slaves; Muhammad the Emancipator of Women; Muhammad the Judge; Muhammad the Saint... In all these magnificent roles and in all these departments of human activities he is equally a hero."

    LEGACY OF THE PROPHET:

    George Bernard Shaw said about him:

    "He must be called the Savior of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it much needed peace and happiness." [The Genuine Islam, Singapore, Vol. 1, No. 8, 1936]

    Michael H. Hart in his book on ratings of people who contributed towards the benefit and upliftment of mankind writes:

    "My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world's most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels."
    (The 100: A ranking of the most influential persons in history" New York, 1978, p. 33)

    Dr Annie Besant in her book "The Life and Teachings of Muhammad" Madras, 1932, p. 4. says:

    "It is impossible for anyone who studies the life and character of the great Prophet of Arabia, who knows how he taught and how he lived, to feel anything but reverence for that mighty Prophet, one of the great messengers of the Supreme. And although in what I put to you I shall say many things which may be familiar to many, yet I myself feel whenever I re-read them, a new way of admiration, a new sense of reverence for that mighty Arabian teacher."

    Mahatma Gandhi, speaking on the character of Muhammad [​IMG] said ...

    "I wanted to know the best of one who holds today's undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind....I became more than convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet, the scrupulous regard for his pledges, his intense devotion to this friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle. When I closed the 2nd volume (of the Prophet's biography), I was sorry there was not more for me to read of the great life." [Young India]

    10 Points of Enlightenment on What Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) Gave to Humanity
    All praise is due to Allah, and blessings and peace be upon His final Messenger.
    Some non-Muslim westerners have been wondering what it is that Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) presented to humanity, particularly after the defamation of his honorable character by western media.
    Assuming responsibility under the International Program for Introducing the Prophet of Mercy (blessings and peace be upon him), we deem it our duty to answer the questions regarding what our Prophet gave to humanity and the world. It can be briefly summarized as follows:

    1- Through revelation from God (Allah), Muhammad (Peace be upon him) transferred humanity from obedience and submission to other men to the worship and submission to God alone, associating nothing with Him. Consequently, human kind became free from servitude to other than Allah, and this is the greatest honor for mankind.

    2- Through revelation from God, Muhammad (Peace be upon him) liberated the human mind from superstition, deception and submission to false objects of worship as well as those concepts contrary to reason, such as the claim that God had a human son whom He sacrificed to atone for the sins of humanity.

    3- Muhammad (Peace be upon him) laid the foundations for tolerance among people. In the Qur'an, Allah revealed to His Prophet that there is to be no compulsion in the acceptance of religion. Muhammad (Peace be upon him) also clarified the rights of the non-Muslims who do not wage war against Muslims and guaranteed protection of their lives, children, property and honor. Even today in many Muslim countries there are Jewish and Christian citizens living in peace and security in contrast to the Spanish Inquisitions in which Muslims were exterminated in an ethnic cleansing that violated all the humanitarian principles asserted by the western culture.

    4- Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was a mercy sent by God to all peoples regardless of race or faith. In fact, his teachings include mercy even to birds and animals, and forbid harming them without right or reason.

    5- Muhammad (showed unparalleled respect for and appreciation of all the prophets who preceded him, among them Abraham, Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them all). God revealed to him words to the effect that one who denies or disrespects any of the prophets cannot be a Muslim. Islam regards all of the prophets as one brotherhood, inviting people to the belief that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, who is the one true God.

    6- Muhammad (Peace be upon him) defended human rights for both males and females, for young and old, regardless of social status. He established a set of sublime principles; one example being in the speech he gave during his farewell pilgrimage in which he declared strict prohibition of transgression against people's lives, property and honor. These principles he laid down long before the world knew of the Magna Charta in 1215, the Declaration of Rights in 1628, the Personal Freedoms Law in 1679, the American Declaration of Independence in 1776, the Human and Citizen Rights Charter in 1789, and the worldwide Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.

    7- Muhammad (Peace be upon him) elevated the importance of morality in human life. He called for good manners, honesty, loyalty and chastity and strengthened social bonds such as being dutiful to parents and relatives, always putting into practice what he preached. He prohibited and warned against such negative behavior as lying, envy, betrayal, fornication and disrespect of parents, and he treated the problems stemming from these diseases.

    8- Through the revelation from God Muhammad (Peace be upon him) invited people to use their minds, to discover the universe around them and to acquire knowledge. He confirmed that God rewards such deeds at a time when scientists and intellectuals in other civilizations were suffering persecution and accusations of heresy and blasphemy, being terrorized in prisons, tortured and often killed.

    9- Muhammad (Peace be upon him) came with a revelation from God, presenting a religion compatible to human nature - one that satisfies the needs of the soul and those of the body and establishes a balance between worldly deeds and those done for the Hereafter. It is a religion that disciplines human instincts and desires without suppressing them completely as in some other cultures which were absorbed with ideals contrary to human nature, depriving religious men given to worship of such natural human rights as marriage and of such natural reactions as anger toward transgression, expecting them not to defend against aggressors. This led most members of these civilizations to reject religious teachings and become absorbed in the material world, which caters only to their bodies while leaving their souls in a miserable state.

    10- Muhammad (Peace be upon him) presented to the world a perfect model of brotherhood among human beings. He taught that no race is superior to another for all are equal in origin and equal in their responsibilities and rights. One's degree of faith and piety is the only criterion for preference. His companions were given equal opportunities to belong to and serve the religion. Among them were Suhayb, a Byzantine, Bilal, an Abyssinian, Salman, a Persian, and many other non-Arabs.

    In conclusion, each of these ten points requires further detail and explanation. What Muhammad (Peace be upon him) offered humanity is much more than can be mentioned in this brief outline. There is also a great deal that has been said about him by objective researchers from the East and West after they studied the biography of this great Prophet.

    Indonesia isn't a real country, it's just a bunch of expendable rice gobblers in a country no one wants.

    Q: Whats the difference between a smart Indonesian and a unicorn?
    A: Nothing, they're both fictional characters

    Q: Why don't the Indonesians take showers anymore?
    A: Because after the Tsunami they are washing up on the beaches!
