Must read this article and spread the words and share as much as you can.

Why does the Muslims over and over again keep saying that Islam is a beautiful and peaceful Religion?

It is a peaceful religion for everyone and to the person who submit himself to God and gives his heart to his Creator and wants to follow him. Allah gives peace to Believers, and also the rejecters of Islam because a non-Muslim shall never feel fear around a Muslim, only peace, because that is how a Muslim is supposed to act with people - with peace, peacefully. Islam Has told us to live in peace with other people - but they have the human right to defend themselves. As long as the neighbor is peaceful against him and don't hurt him physically, he can do it verbally though, he doesn't have the right to defend himself. The second the harm goes away, so does he. As long as the neighbor, the country and the fellowmen are not a threat to him he is forbidden to defend himself in any manner. A muslim must always behave well, even though somebody is nasty. that is the proper manner of the every Muslim and the prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

In the moment the harm, i.e., somebody wants to shoot you or harm you physically, he is allowed to impoverish him. That means that he has the right to defend himself. If nobody is a threat to the Muslim, then the Muslim live in Peace with everybody around him, because a Muslim is the best neighbor, the best father, the best friend, the best son, the best brother, the best employer, the best labourer, the best person for those around him.

Can a religion that teaches to defend oneself against threats give lessons of brotherhood? 

Yes, the religion does, but perhaps not the Muslims. Many Muslims are not in lign with the islamic faith and the lessons that islam teach. So why should a Muslim teach something that he doesn't follow. You must know that Muslims shouldn't talk about anything anywhere. There are many questions that Muslims should keep quiet about. They should know somebody they can refer to, that can help them, e.g. a Sheikh.

Islam doesn't spread love and Unity among all people. 

Allah spreads love among people and if he wants to also Unity. There is a lack of Unity amongst the Muslim today. The Muslims are not United. They are very widespread not only geographically, but also in mind, soul, knowledge and spirit. So, if you want to know something about love, please direct yourself to your God. Do you want Unity, then start act like a Muslim and follow the steps of Prophet Muhammad peace be Upon him.

Is islam totally against Terrorism? 

If you don't know why a person does kill people, you can be very eager to judge the situation as a terrorist-attack. But if you are a reasonable person, then you know that Terrorists are not those that kill people, there is no such a thing as a Terrorist. A man who kills other people are either defending himself, or very angry and unjust towards himself, because if he kills somebody without right, without having been threatened, then he will be amongst the killers, and that is a major sin. So there is no Muslim terrorist, but perhaps a Muslim Sinner.

Terrorism is a Major Sin

Islam has said to all Muslims that it is haram to kill a person without legal justice. You cannot take a situation and do whatever you want to do. There is no such thing in islam at all. But there are regulations about killing, but you have to be a Muslim lawyer to understand and act upon the laws and there must be a judge that act upon and implement the laws. Without that, there can't be any killing. If there is, they are big sinners.

New gadgets to help you learn Arabic

I have added a lot of interesting and fun gadgets below. One of them is a tool to help you learn new words. Just write a word in what language you wish. Then choose a language you want to learn and Voilà, you've got a SMILE on your face. How simple and easy wasn't it. I tried the word "Svensk" and choose Spanish as language - Voilá "Sueco". Then I tried with "Cool" And choose arabic - Voilà "Ba-rid" (But in arabic of course)

Then I also added bandwidth-test. It is also cool. My broadband is very slow, so it helps me have an idea of what I have. I also learned that I use ISDN, whatever that means.

The rain is a sign that your doua, inchallah, will be accepted

It is raining now. It is a perfect time to pray, because the doua is accepted more easily. I have a nasheed in my head that I can't take away. It is a nasheed that makes my heart soft and humble. It is a nasheed by Ahmed Bukhatir "Last breath".
