Among them were the Ash’ari Clan. When they were afflicted with a period of deprivation they would collect all of their provisions and divide them amongst themselves -as mentioned in the Hadith.I wish to take this opportunity to encourage our brothers [and sisters] who are cooperating to assist the virtuous, scholarly Imam, Siraj Wahhaj, during his trial, which is a manifestation of the divine decree enacted in this world. With it Allah expiates misdeeds and elevates by degrees. This is a blessing for the believers who when afflicted with hardship patiently endure it, and when graced with ease thank [Allah].We plead for your support and invite all of the Muslims (worldwide) to cooperate with us and make sincere donation to our virtuous brother, the activist Imam, Siraj Wahhaj, as he receives final treatment for prostate cancer. We ask Allah that He cures us and him; grants both us and him well being; and that He envelopes us all in His blessings in perceptible and imperceptible ways.[Furthermore], that He blesses us and Imam Siraj Wahhaj to be steadfast in practice and faith and that He bestows upon us and Imam, Siraj Wahhaj excellence in religion. Please! Let’s continue to make du’a for him and render financial support in abundance for the conclusion of his treatment and for all the believers who are facing health issues. I pray that we can all improve our health and take important steps to achieve and maintain holistic wellness in mind, body and spirit.Donation is to be made via western union or moneygramm with the below information and special prayer (Salaat) has been declared to favour all donators.Receiver’s name: Abdul-Malik WahhajAddress: 2 Victoria Road, London IG11 8PYKindly send western union or moneygramm payment information to the below email:Email: helpimamsiraj@yahoo.co.uk…and provide your name, address and telephone number as, we shall communicate you in due time and you will receive a reward package.May Allah bestow His Mercy and Peace upon you as you donate to save the life of Imam Siraj Wahhaj!From:Shaykh ‘Abdullah bin BayyahJeddah, Saudi Arabia”And if Allah touches thee with affliction, none can remove it but He: But if He bestows upon you a favor, remember that He is the Possessor of every power to do all that He wills.”(Qur’an 6:17)….Givers Never Lack!

To say that Jesus is God is a sin punishable by death in the Islam religion. Jesus said that if you don’t know me then you do not know my father who sent me. Jesus told people to turn away from their false Gods. Those in the Catholic church who are christians should be sharing the gospel with their Muslim friends. And on another point, has the Pope apologized to Muslims for the Crusades?
