“Then it occurred to them that it would be in their interest to imprison for a time, even after they were convinced of his innocence and saw the proofs of his truth, honesty and chastity.” The issue concerning Moazzam Begg is well known to everyone. Moazzam’s crime wasn’t that he allegedly sent an electric generator to someone in Syria or that he allegedly carried out some fitness training whilst out there, Moazzam’s crime was that he had campaigned tirelessly against injustices of rendition, arbitrary detention and torture, as well as covert operations and the complicit involvement of nation states in

The advent of modern technology has provided an unprecedented platform for individuals and groups to manufacture and spread false information about Islam on a large scale. This phenomenon is carried out by both members of the faith and others who are open adversaries of Islam. Whilst the latter group is less successful in its attempts to penetrate and circulate false teachings among Muslims, the former for a long time, has had almost total success with very little opposition. Though there is a small but growing circle of Muslims ever cautious and vigilant, aware of the dangers of false teachings and

[al-Taḥawiyyah Pt 29 & 30] All Claims to Prophethood after Him Are False and A Prophet to Both Man and Jinn

وَكُلُّ دَعْوَى النُّبُوَّةِ بَعْدَهُ فَغَيٌّ وَهَوًى All claims to prophethood after him are false (ghayy) and fanciful (hawa) To reiterate the previous point, believing in the Prophet (Ṣallāhu ‘alayhi wa salam) entails believing that he (Ṣallāhu ‘alayhi wa salam) is the seal of the prophets. This means that any claim of prophecy after him is false. This is what the author alluded to in this statement. Whoever claims prophethood, or that he receives revelation, is an outright liar and deviant. If he was a Muslim, he would be considered an apostate as he has rejected something fundamental from the religion,

He is Chief of the Messengers. He is very dear to the Lord of the Worlds. As mentioned in the preceding point, the belief that the Prophet (Ṣallāhu ‘alayhi wa salam) is the seal of the Messengers is part of the fundamental belief in his prophethood. If anyone accepts the entire message of the Prophet (Ṣallāhu ‘alayhi wa salam) but does not believe that he was the final messenger, that person has not yet entered Islām. Moreover, if one held the Prophet

Part Four: An Option to Pray in the House and Miss the Congregational Mosque Prayer The scholars have allowed a concession to not pray the congregational prayer in the mosque if the weather makes it significantly inconvenient and could cause harm. Ibn Qudāmah said: “(A man) may be excused for not praying the Friday prayer (Jumu`ah) or praying with the congregation (jamā`ah) because of rain that makes the clothes wet, or mud that causes annoyance or stains the clothes. It was narrated that ‘Abd Allāh b. ‘Abbās (RaḍiAllāhu 'anhu) said to his Mu'adhin on a rainy day: When you say:
