** INTRO REMARKS **
This was initially a written blog post, but then I decided to record a podcast episode instead. The original blog post is below, and below that are the show notes.
You know what really KILLS me about the westernized/modernized/asleep/coconut/whatever you-want-to-call-them so-called “Muslims”? They themselves are guilty of all the accusations they make against others and they don’t see it.
For example: They act like they’re so open minded and tolerant, but the moment you bring an understanding/opinion/evidence that contradicts their “hold hands and sing kumbayah” worldview, they immediately drop their open-minded tolerance and start name-calling, always hiding behind the excuses of “context” and “nuance”, even when the supposed context actually proves them wrong.Read more “Episode 7 – The Myth of the “Moderate” Muslim”
The Prophet [SAW] said: “Whoever fights to protect his wealth and is killed, he is a martyr. Whoever fights to protect himself, he is a martyr. Whoever fights to protect his family is a martyr.”
أَخْبَرَنَا عَمْرُو بْنُ عَلِيٍّ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ مَهْدِيٍّ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ سَعْدٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ أَبِي عُبَيْدَةَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ، عَنْ طَلْحَةَ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَوْفٍ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ زَيْدٍ، عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ “ مَنْ قَاتَلَ دُونَ مَالِهِ فَقُتِلَ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ وَمَنْ قَاتَلَ دُونَ دَمِهِ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ وَمَنْ قَاتَلَ دُونَ أَهْلِهِ فَهُوَ شَهِيدٌ ” .
This being the first episode of the podcast, I wanted to introduce myself and tell my story of how I came to Islam.
Generally, when reading a book written by the scholars of Islam, an introductory biography of the scholar is included so that you know who you are learning from. For this first episode, I wanted to follow their example.
