Islam is in the spotlight now more than ever before and this has caused people to question the faith itself and none more so than the new-age modernists muslims, largely from the convert western countries who are hell-bent on reforming Islam and its traditional values. This blog is a small space in the vastness of the internet where the fight to preserve, uphold and dignify the traditional inherent human values, are proactively argued against the onslaught of modernist propaganda and hate. Covering topics from current affairs to life-enriching inspirations, though to the traditional teachings of the pious and the awliyah of the past and the present.

In the ‘Life of Muhammad’ comments panel I am repeatedly told my e-mail address ******** is INVALID and consequently my comments do not appear. I have used ******** before and it was accepted. Now it is repeatedly rejected.


You still are not making yourself clear. On one post (I’m sure your aware you which one) your comments are appearing in the comments section. Where as you are repeatedly saying you cannot post comments on another post. Why? From my side I can see all your comments on the relevant posts you are involved with.
Secondly, if you are wishin to continue in having a discussion here, then do so as a civilised, matured individual. Not like a 16 year old who is letting his teenage hormones run wild in answering and replying to mature and well mannered discussion comments. When referring to the prophet of islam be sure you do not come across as arrogant, bigoted individual. A person with a narrow world view. Your last comment is deeply offensive (on the bbc post) You have no consideration for the sensitivities of the Muslims when you address the prophet of islam! Your replies clearly comes across a a person hell bent on showing the superiority of Christianity over other religions. Stop this childish attitude. Out all the comments, you seem to be a individual who is trying to show people how your way is “supposedly” better than islam. Grow up and have a adult discussion here. If you think you cannot continue to have a civilised and a mature discussion here then please leave. I also removed your email address from it appearing in your comment on this blog post.


I like what you guys are up also. Such clever work and reporting! Keep up the superb works guys I have incorporated you guys to my blogroll. I think it will improve the value of my site :).


Salaam how are you? Brother id just like to say, i really like what youre doing. Ive only read one or two blogs, but i know who you all are! 🙂 and as for the fact your actually funny and straight forward.. Makes one want to read on for Longer! Now a question.. I go to college i can fit in my zuhr and asr but jumma needs to be read at a masjid.. Now i have 30 minutes which isnt long enough to go to the masjid.. Do i get a few brothers together and do jumma at college? And if so.. Is there a short Khutba that can be read? Can you please give advice? Jazak’Allah


Walicum aslam, you say you know ME. So I’d like to ask you a question? Are you shiraj from Bolton?

Secondly, with regards to praying jummah. As long as facilities are available (a room or a area) and there are three 3 Muslims in an area. One must do jummah on Fridays and not dhur. The minimum requirement for jummah is 3 people. This is as far as I know. Do keep in mind, I am not an ALIM or a scholar. So, double check with learned ulema. Thirdly, the following link has the conditions needed to do a kutbah: Jummah will not take more than 30mins. A simple kutbah is required and the rest is just a normal salah. There is nothing extra we do in jummah. No extra worship or vigils we have to observe.

Lastly, there is no US here. Just me. Hence the title ‘mybeliefs’ 🙂


Salaam bro thanks a lot and no i am from cheetham hill my brother is part of what you are and insha’Allah i’ll be


Since you love controversial topics, I suggest you write something about those nasheed artists and their nasheeds that are nothing but a new type of “pop culture.” I really like your thick skin! That’s a compliment by the way. Keep the blogs coming, you’re doing a great job, ma’sha Allah.


What’s so controversial? These days anyone who chooses to speak up against the changing tide of Americanisation of Islam, is seen as being controversial. Truth seeks no support or encouragement. I would ask the blogger to not feel he is under any obligation to succumb to people’s cynical rhetoric.


I’m actually encouraging the blogger, I don’t understand what you are trying to say? Anything that people get “fidgety” about is considered controversial, as can be seen by the plethora of comments on the blog.


For your information I had covered this topic which seems to interest you. Read here:

It’s funny how you mention I like to write about ‘controversial’ issues. When you also are also of the “thick skin” type. Wanting to know something about the “pop culture” within new nasheeds. This is also a controversial topic. Think before you speak. As it may come back to haunt you someday.


That may be the case.

But my point in highlighting the case with Syyiduna Umar (r) was a subtle one. with hamza Yusuf coupling the ‘apparently’ factual information of Umar (R) with hijab and women’s issues in general, is misleading. Firstly, he spoke about it manner which was completely derogatory and condescending. Almost as if to say, if Umar (r) had bare breasted women waking around naked. What’s the issue with women not wearing the hijab?’ (Astagfirullah!!) secondly, The subtleties of the tone of his address was profound! Umar (r) is not an ordinarily muslim, that we can be frank and direct about when talking. We live in a day and age which is hellbent on sex, alcohol and lust. To present his arguments is such frank and open manner is counter productive on every level. He should think carefully before he speaks. The tone and the content he wishes to speak of. He is considered to be a Muslim guru by many non-Muslim commentators. This is not far from the truth. Many Muslims see him as such. So to speak about companions and the greatest generations with such open frankness will have negative re-precautions! It will only serve to add fuel to the fire of lust, desires and evil which is already rampant in our societies. People will see this as a green light to live free and in open revulsion to the laws of Allah in hijab. It would have been fair enough if he said what he did, but then explained his stance to people. Just to clear any satanic thoughts which may creep into people’s mind. However he specifically choose not to. That in its self is very dangerous!


You seem to be filled (read obsessed) with a lot of things other people do and condemning them.

Can you please tell me who you do you follow for your own guidance? Which scholars? Which school etc.? Can you name a few ?


Salamun alaykum,
I thought this blog was something to do with (the late) Sheikh Nazim (from Cyprus) who passed away recently. Of course there can be more than one person with the same name in ths world!


Could you pleas shed light on why Hamza Yusuf is refusing to condemn Israel and asking people to wait for the day of Judgment of Justice (see his recent Facebook posts).


Out of interest u are only a blogger not a scholar of Islam? Is there any traditional text permitting bloggers to speak about Islam?

Isnt it modernists that baley could utter Arabic letters that tend to speak about Islam?
