Can you argue with reason the existence of God?

Religion and science have for a long time been seen as apart from each other, ever since the Church was separated from the State. It was not until then you went from following the Christian religion blindless to see things in a scientific way that the society was developed into what it is today. But religion and science is still very closely linked. Not in the Christian eye, but very much in the Muslim eye. For a Muslim, religion and science is the same thing This is a very exciting topic that you can discusss over and over again. 

The topic fot the discussion in the Video is: "Can you argue with reason the existence of God"?
The discussion is in English, even though it is written in Swedish above the Video. The discussion is with the Christians, but if you followed a Muslim Video on the same topic, you would be amazed. Please compare these Videos and Comment on your Reactions.

Death is not the end - Conflict Israel and Palestine

Muslims have billions of brothers and sisters around the world. 

As a Muslim you have billions of brothers and sisters around the world. It could be quite overwhelming, but it isn’t. If you weren’t interested in what happened in the world before, you will, if you are a Convert. That was the case for me. I heard about what happened in the World, and how the Muslims were treated. Before I was a Muslim it couldn’t interest me less, but afterwards I realized how much I didn’t know about Politics, Society and Economics. I was terrified of the state of the Muslim body. The community isn’t strong and every Muslim has something to argue about when it comes to Religion. It can be details but also Politics that the Muslims argue about. But one thing unites every Muslim in the world and that is the situation in Palestine and Israel. Even if you are not a Muslim, you are interested in the Conflict between the Zionists and the Palestinians. Most people that live in Sweden or in the West thinks it is the Palestinians that are the bad boys. But nothing could be further from the truth. 

David and Goliath - Palestine and Israel

Just think about David and Goliath. David was a prophet and Goliath was the enemy. If you remember the history, David took a stone and threw it towards Goliath and it hit him. Goliath fell down. If the history is true, God knows better. But in this case it is the same. Palestine is David and Goliath is Israel. Palestine is a small unit of the world now with only pebbles to protect themselves with. On the other hand we have the giant Goliath with nuclear weapons pointed towards every big city in Europe. That is why Europe can’t say anything, they are afraid. If they speak up about the injustice they are called Anti-Semists and that is a Crime. You must remember what happened during the WW2, because the history is repeating itself – but in Palestine. Millions of innocent people were killed in gas chambers. Millions of innocent people are crushed by Israeli bombs, ever since Israel invaded the Palestinian land in the beginning of the 20th Century. They co-acted with the Colonials, i.e. UK. After UK retreated from the occupation they handed the land over to Israel. When newspapers talk about Palestine, they most never bring up the history of Israel, but only the last couple of years, as if Israel has existed “forever”. That is also the message that Israel wants the people around the world to understand, nothing else, not the reality. It is also the Jews that are the Owners of many Media giants. 


Israel is a great country 

Israel is a great country in many ways. USA keeps giving money to Israel. That is why they can afford good Universities, research in various fields of interests and to plant trees in the deserts. I am talking about the famous Gharqad tree or Boxthorn tree that will not speak out to the Muslim in the battles, near the end of time, that occur with the Jews.

Signs and the Hour

“Judgment Day will come only when the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them, until the Jew hides behind the tree and the stone, and the tree and the stone say: ‘Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him’ – except for the Gharqad tree.”

Did you know that Israel is the only country where the desert is not growing, but in fact decreasing, thanks to this efforts. So Israel doesn’t do just bad things. They do good things too and they keep developing technology and other things. The great capital of Israel was built within a half decade with money from USA and now looks like a New York. How can they afford all those things they are doing and why does USA keep sending them money? Are they poor? No, they are preparing a war against the Muslim countries. But is it the truth? What are their intentions? Do they know that they are going to fall at the end? I think so. In fact, we are awaiting the last Hour to come pretty soon. The Jews know about the End of time. The Christians and the Muslims too. But the Christians many times are confused about who is AntiCrist. They think it is the Muslims. But they will have the truth revealed soon. Many of the signs that the prophets have warned about since Adam have already come, but not all. I will not count them here. But the fact is that Jesus peace be upon him, will kill Antichrist at the gate of Ludd, which is Lod, an airport and military Base in Israel. Antichrist will be accompanied with Jews, that don’t believe in Jesus or Muhammad. They will battle against Jesus that fights together with the Christians that believe in Jesus' arrival, the Jews that believe in the Mahdi and the Muslims. All together, United. After that, there will be a time of Peace and Salam. There will not be any poor people and the Arabia will be green again, but only for a little period of time.

Jesus will descend in the blessed area of Syria

Remember also Syria. Syria, or Ash-sham, is a Blessed area, because the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him said: "do not say of Bani Tameem anything but good, for indeed they are the severest of people in attacking the Dajjaal." from Musnad Ahmad ibn Hanbal. They will also conquer their leader as the Prophet mentioned in a hadith and they will also be blessed with the news that Prophet 'Isa or Jesus will descend in their land.

Allah will send ‘Isa (as) son of Maryam to Earth. He will descend with two angels wearing two beautiful garments in his palms to the white minaret in the east of Sham. (Tirmidhi, Fitan, p. 59)  Prophet ‘Isa (as) will descend to the white minaret in the east of Damascus (Sham).

After that Mahdi will come, and all Muslims must join him. Because Mahdi will fight with Isa against the Dajjal – and most importantly win over him. He will also Unite Islam and make the body complete again.  During this time, everybody still have the chance to repent, because Allah has promised us that.

" No good will it do to a person to believe then, if he believed not before, nor earned good (by performing deeds of righteousness) through his faith."  (Surah Al-An'aam 6:158)

لا ينفع نفسا إيمانها لم تكن آمنت من قبل أو كسبت في إيمانها خيرا  .  6 / الأنعام / الآية 

Abdullah-bin-Umar said, "I memorized a Hadith of the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم  which I have not forgotten. I heard the Messenger of Allah  صلى الله عليه وسلم  say, 'The first of the Signs that will come is the rising of the sun from the place of its setting and the emergence of the Daabba (The beast) to people in Duha (later portion of the morning before noon). Whichever of these two (signs) occurs before the other, then the other one will occur immediately after it."  (Sahih Muslim)

Safwan bin Assal narrated the Prophet  صلى الله عليه وسلم  said, "Allah has built a door of repentance where the sun sets, its breadth requires 70 years journey for foot passenger or 40-70 years for a rider. It will not be closed as long as the Sun does not rise from the West."  (Tirmizi)

The fact is that the Sun will be rising in the West, because every Scholar knows that the Earth is slowing down and then it will revolve around itself. This is a known fact. The only thing is that they don’t know when this will occur. They only know that it will.

Death is not the end

To summarize everything. Allah has sent us Prophets that warns us against the calamity that arrives before the last Hour arrives. There have been prophets to all kind of people since Adam aleihu salem, until today. The prophets have the same Message: Adore only the One that Created you and take no associates with him. Pray and give Charity. Live a good and righteous life. And Repent. Because death is not the end.

Is Islam really peaceful?

Islam is beautiful and peaceful Religion ♥♥

♥♥ Islam is prescribed for all world people ♥♥

♥♥ Islam always give lessons of brotherhood ♥♥

♥♥ Islam spread love and Unity among all people ♥♥


For knowing How Islam is totally against Terrorism,

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.

Names and meanings and is this halal?

Even if I don't believe in names and their meanings, I thought that this was very correct. My first Christian name is Pernilla and then I took a second name, an Arabic name: Esma. When I read about these names I can see that I am both names. Alhough I wasn't like they describes Esma when I was young I think that it is quite accurate. I took the second name when I was twenty years old.

Why did I even go to the name page? 

Because I googled on names and what other people with my name, my husbands' name and my childrens name do as profession. It is quite interesting to search and imagine that you live a "double" life and you live like those that are out there.

This is an exerpt from First names meanings:

Two names: ESMA and Pernilla


Born: Pernilla, and I still have it today

The choice of career is not always an easy one, and such indecision doesn´t necessarily end once she has committed herself to a single professional direction. This is due to the active number 49 which provokes much change and is responsible for intense emotional strain. Work is not an end in itself, but when pushed she would choose an artist´s life or maybe a job in advertising, fashion or media ..., occupations to do with travel (especially overseas), temporary work or in connection with bars, nightclubs and the night, medicine, nursing or paramedics, or related to nature, animals and the earth, because she´s an environmentalist at heart!
Who is she?

Humane, sociable, emotional and sensitive, Pernilla   is a woman who is feminine and charming, eager to please, sensitive, intuitive and a dreamer. She´s an idealist who could be attracted by large social, community and humanitarian movements, in which she is capable of investing herself. She craves varied and frequent personal experiences and when moved by a cause she is capable of mobilizing all of her courage and energy, just as she is of making sacrifices, in order to achieve her goals. On the other hand, she avoids confrontation like the plague, and faced with the blows of fate is likely to become withdrawn and can have difficulty coping emotionally. Although she may appear reserved and even proud, this is just a facade that conceals a lack of confidence, shyness and an overwhelming emotionalism. Two somewhat contradictory tendencies are coexistent: the first is unconventional, light and breezy, mobile, curious, sensual and volatile, with a taste for adventure and networking and the other, more internalized, thoughtful, serious, hardworking, and seeks security and peace. These two tendencies could coexist in different areas, (for example, her professional life could be very stable while her emotional life is much less so) or their expression could be linear and alternating. She could have an extraordinary destiny which could however involve certain sacrifices as well as a high degree of nervousness. By the way, she will probably be an activist, although she should beware of the dangers of fanaticism, intransigence, extravagance and self-delusion - often inseparable from these energies! As a child, her development is closely interconnected with her emotional environment. A hobby could open new vistas, and enable her to live out her aspirations and fantasies, as well as her romanticism. Be careful that she doesn´t become too disorganized by teaching her the value of tidiness and order, discipline and hard work, to enable her to more easily develop her master number as she matures.

What does she like?

She likes change, diversity and travel. She is a bohemian at heart and her freedom is sacred. Fun-loving and Epicurean, she can resist everything except temptation. She is sentimental and romantic, albeit contradictory, the innocent libertine - she wants thrills, passion and excitement, but at the same time she seeks the security of a stable relationship, a home and a family. But what if Prince Charming, virile, brave and generous as she imagines him, only exists in her dreams? She could be frequently disappointed, although if he does happen to turn up one day, Pernilla   will surely win him over with her generous spirit and her fertile imagination, and she will love him with all her heart... Just don´t expect her to ever be an  accomplished housewife !

Took a second name: Esma: 2000-11-30

With such a mobile and unsettled nature, they are likely to choose a career involving expression such as sales or marketing, for example. Esma and Yevdokiya   could therefore be tempted by any of the following occupations: those in liaison with verbal or written expression: sales representation, journalism, public relations, teaching or university lecturing; or a career as a presenter, singer or actress..., in one of the creative and artistic domains, involving the giving of advice, in relation to children, toys or games..., Independence will be an important factor.


Who are they?

Energetic and extremely likeable, Esma and Yevdokiya   are particularly open to communication. They could appear to be rather unusual and they certainly cultivate their own individual style. They give the impression that they are strong and self-assured, however the truth is that they are fragile and can lack self-confidence. They compensate for this vulnerability with an ease of expression - they are sunny and cheerful, and their enthusiasm is infectious. Lively and adaptable, they are great actresses who master the art of persuasion and have an answer for everything. They know what to do and say in order to be liked; how to charm, seduce and capture the attention of those around them. They enjoy games and anything that involves having fun, preferring to always look on the bright side of life... Curious creatures, they may take an interest in a hundred-and-one subjects at once without necessarily going into detail in any area. They have a tendency to spread themselves too thinly and can be a little shallow. Clever, dextrous and creative, they are good at fixing and making things. They are strong-willed with a large capacity for action, although their efforts can be inconsistent. Their emotions and relationships can have a considerable influence on their personal or even professional destinies.

As little girls, they are mischievous little monkeys. They are real chatterboxes, but luckily, they occasionally stop talking in order to breathe and eat. However, they are often tempted to gossip. Their sharp minds mean that they learn quickly and get bored easily. If they are demotivated or unconvinced of the merits of what they are doing they tend to waste their abilities and just concentrate on having fun... Esma and Yevdokiya   are very emotionally driven and will do much better at school if they are encouraged and loved. Dancing, drawing and foreign languages are all areas in which they are likely to excel, and are therefore to be encouraged. They require balance and stability.

 What do they like?

Sensitive and imaginative, they seek the company of others and have a profound sense of friendship. They fear loneliness and their emotional lives take priority over everything. They are conciliatory and attentive listeners, qualities that are appreciated by others. They could feel torn between a desire to look out for number one and a longing for unity with others; accomplishment in the professional arena and devoting themselves to family life.

The powerful tool of a pure intention

"If My servant considers doing a sin, do not record it against him. If he acts upon it, record it as one sin. If he considers doing a good deed and does not do it, record it as one good deed, and if he actually does it, record it as 10 good deeds." (Muslim)


The powerful tool of a pure intention 

We all know that intentions are a powerful tool to get what you want. We have all read or heard about "the Secret". But do you know that the thing they refer to as Universe actually is Allah? It is Allah who sustains every soul with what he or she wants. Allah responds to your prayer. What the Secret doesn't talk about is that, apart from being thankful and in great mood, you also have to have a pure intention and an intention that is in lign with what is good and right, or as the Muslims say, halal.
If you have bad intentions, perhaps you will get what you want, but what you don't know is that you will not only be judged according to what you have intended but you will either be rewarded or punished.
Another thing about intention is that you won't have the effect of the intention for this life only. You will also have the effect in the next life. So, The intention must be for the sake of Allah and you must only desire or intend what Allah has said to you that you can enjoy, things that are halal.
For example; if you want to have a good reputation in this world, you might get it, but the intention will only last for this life, not the next life. Why?
Another example. If you intend to read Qur'an to have a good reputation, then it will also last only this life. Why? The answer is that the Qur'an is a good thing to read, but if your intention is for the sake of this world's affairs, then everything will be jumbled, because you didn't believe in the hereafter and you didn't do it for the sake of Allah. Even though it is a good intention to read Qur'an it is not good if it is mixed up with the intention of being famous. It will not be accepted and rewarded in the next life, only in this life. And Allah knows best.
You can not intend something that, in the next life, will not be accepted; things that are forbidden, or as the Muslims say, haram. For example. You want to use magic. This is a thing that is forbidden. You have intended something forbidden. If you have intended a forbidden thing, you might get it in this life, but you could also be punished both in this life and in the next life. Why? Because it is not a good thing to intend, it is something that is haram, forbidden.
So the effect is that, if you are a Believer, a Muslim, and you have intended that forbidden thing, you have intended something in vain; for this life and the next one.

'Umar b. al-Khattab narrated that the Prophet (S) said: Deeds are [a result] only of the intentions [of the actor], and an individual is [rewarded] only according to that which he intends. Therefore, whosoever has emigrated for the sake of Allah and His messenger, then his emigration was for Allah and His messenger. Whosoever emigrated for the sake of worldly gain, or a woman [whom he desires] to marry, then his emigration is for the sake of that which [moved him] to emigrate." Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim.

Intentions are powerful

Be careful with your intentions. Intentions are powerful. That is why Allah has given us tools, hadiths on how to pray and what to say when we intend something. Allah has said that our thoughts are very important and that they must be pure. The thoughts must not only be pure, they must also be good and halal. Allah has taught us what we must say when we intend or pray for something.
There are quite many hadiths about intentions and douas that you can use.
You must also remember that the intention you have and the thoughts that are in your mind should be something that is good. If you get something that you really wanted, it  may be that it is not what you really needed or wanted, when you look at it afterwards. How? The answer is that the thing that you really desired could be a thing that is not good for you, even if it is halal. How?
When Allah gives you what you intended, others things can come along with it. For example. A man wants a nice, expensive car. He intends for it and Allah gives him a car. But with that particular car he will also have an accident. And Allah knows what is best for us and what awaits us when choosing in our lives. So let Allah decide for us. So, another example. Another man also wants a nice, expensive car. He really wants to have it but he has knowledge that if he gets the car something bad might happen. So what does he do? He asks Allah for what is best for him and that Allah shall protect him against evil. That is the best intention you can have.
So, be careful for what you wish for. It may come true, with everything with it.
And don't be sad if the intention doesn't come to you, because it may be that Allah has protected you from something that is worse.

Umar bin Al-Khattab was on the pulpit and he said: I heard the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, saying, “Indeed, deeds are only with intentions. Indeed, every person will get rewarded only for what they intended. Therefore, whoever emigrated (to Medina) for worldly reasons or for a woman, then his emigration is for what he has emigrated to.”
[Sahih Bukhari, Book 1, Number 1]

عُمَرَ بْنَ الْخَطَّابِ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ عَلَى الْمِنْبَرِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ إِنَّمَا الْأَعْمَالُ بِالنِّيَّاتِ وَإِنَّمَا لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مَا نَوَى فَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى دُنْيَا يُصِيبُهَا أَوْ إِلَى امْرَأَةٍ يَنْكِحُهَا فَهِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى مَا هَاجَرَ إِلَيْهِ

What is a good Muslim Marriage like? By YM Site

You shall not enter Paradise until you have faith, and you shall not have faith until you love one another. Have compassion on those who are on earth, and He Who is in Heaven will have compassion for you.' (Hadith in Bukhari)

Firstly, a good Muslim marriage should show welcome. Even if the wife did not spend all her day in the home, but perhaps had some employment outside it - even so, the Muslim home should be ready to welcome the family and the guest.

It is the most miserable thing in the world to come home to a dark, locked house, totally empty and bereft of human presence -and this is particularly crushing to a new husband or a child. Any wife thinking of taking up some kind of employment should bear this in mind. Where children are involved, she should make some arrangement with a relative or helper so that they do not build up a mental picture of a home where they `don't count', where they do not feel welcome. As regards a husband, as he is an adult he should not ignore the problems, but be able to talk the thing through and see what the difficulties are, and be able to support the best possible solution that is acceptable to them both.

In an Islamic marriage, both husband and wife have responsibilities and duties, and both are individuals responsible before God for their own Records. Neither has the right to impose or force the other to do something against religion, or to make the other suffer.

It is no good, of course, the husband simply feeling `hard done-by' if he wishes to accept the wife's earnings as part of the total income of the household, but then makes a fuss if it is he who returns to the house first, and who might, perhaps, be expected in that case to light the oven or make the tea! Obviously, if the wife returns before the husband, it is she who gets the `dark emptiness', and she is naturally expected to accept this as part of the way things are. To some extent, it is not really `part of the way things are' any more, in a society where the women are increasingly joining the men as part of the country's workforce. This has to be acknowledged.

The correct Islamic attitude should always be to seek out the best way, and not insist on any code of conduct that is going to upset either partner, or make either partner suffer unfairly. It means that sometimes a husband may have to take the rough with the smooth, or it may mean that the wife may find it better for her marriage not to take full time employment, if this threatens to put too much strain on the marriage. Everything should be considered fairly and openly.

It is patently not all right to expect a highly intelligent woman to sit around at home wasting her life's talents by limiting herself to housework alone. It is true that there is serious unemployment in many Muslim societies, and a major influx of women into the jobs market would make this much worse and leave many families without one breadwinner, let alone two. But it is also true that the Muslim world is crying out for female doctors, nurses, lecturers and so forth, and these women have to undergo considerable sacrifice in order to get themselves trained, and expect to be able to offer their services to the community in much the same way as a trained man. It is not the duty of a Muslim man to be selfish and deprive the community of these talented and dedicated women, and expect them to limit themselves to the service of just one man. So many men take the talents of their wives for granted, and stultify their possible development, which is such a great pity, and a tragedy for society.

On another level, there are many women who cannot cope with being confined all day with children and domestic affairs, who long to go out to work simply to have something else to do, other people to see and talk to, and a little financial reward at the end of it. A Muslim man should realise that he is a lucky person indeed if his wife is happy to devote her whole time and attention to him and his needs, and those of their children and relations. He should count his blessings and never forget to appreciate what a treasure he has been granted.

In many Muslim societies it is taken for granted that a married woman will pass her life in this way, and only someone who has traveled extensively from Muslim country to Muslim country, and had access and the ability to observe the life of Muslim women, can comment fairly on the enormous weight of boredom that lies over the lives of many of these sisters.

It is not full Islam - for God would not have given women the ability to be professionally employed if He had intended a wholly different vocation for them. The Prophet's (s) first wife Khadija was first his employer, while his cousin-wife Zaynab continued to work after their marriage. She made and sold excellent leather saddles, and the Prophet (s) was very pleased with her work. When Islam began fourteen hundred years ago, the women around the Prophet participated in public life, were vocal about social inequalities, and often shared decision making with him. This continued through the golden age of Muslim civilization, when women occupied a far more central role in society than they do nowadays. There were colleges like Cairo's Saqlatuniya Academy which provided higher education for women, and were staffed by women professors. The biographical dictionaries of the great hadith scholars reveal that about a sixth of the hadith scholars in the Muslim middle ages were women. Historians today also marvel at the major role which Muslim women played in the medieval economy, a role made possible by the fact that Islamic law grants a woman the right to own and dispose of property independently of her husband, a law only introduced in the West at the beginning of the twentieth century! But it cannot be denied that over the past three hundred years of our history, women have increasingly disappeared from such positions. It is our duty to try and revive the classical Muslim tradition in this important area.

How to become a Muslim millionaire or billionaire as an immigrant!



1. Change your name into one of your new country's common names. This is very important, especially as the society has a negative vieew of Muslims today. But choose a name wisely. You don't want to have a name that you don't like for the rest of your life.

2. Be patient. Perhaps it is not you who will benefit of your hard work. Perhaps it is your children and your grand-children.

3. Learn basic business practices as early in life as you can. Perhaps you can start working as early as 12 years old with something, so that you got experience in business. Both theory and practice are important to learn and work during the studies.

4. Study some form of engineering at a good University where you live. Learn also algebra and linear programming.

5. Work as a trader for a while and learn it prudently.

6. Start a brokerage firm. A brokerage is a financial institution that facilitates the buying and selling of financial securities (for example bank notes, commons stocks and options) between a buyer and a seller, usually through the firm's agent stockbrokers. The staff is entrusted with the responsibility of researching the markets to provide appropriate recommendations and in so doing they direct the actions of pension fund managers and portfolio managers. These firms also offer margin loans for certain approved clients to purchase investments on credit, subject to agreed terms and conditions. Traditional brokerage firms have also become a source of up-to-date stock prices and quotes.

7. After you have started a brokerage firm, invest in individual businesses for example construction, manufacturing, retail and restaurants.

8. Marry. If you have started at an early age and kept on going as the list prescribes, then you will at the age of 26 be ready to marry, because you will at this stage already be a millionaire.

9. But don't stop there. Don't you want to be a billionaire? Then, continue by investing in construction, real estate and perhaps mining business.

10. Start another business that rents construction equipments.

11. Buy a printing business or part (60%) of one.

12. Form a business that has interests in industry, construction, mining, retail and food.

13.As you are rich now you can profit from your contry's contracted economy and invest in collapsed businesses, like hotels, food retails etc.

14. Continue where you began your career and start trading. For example cupper and aluminium. You can also trade chemical businesses, but a warning, it must be a chemical business of benefit for everybody including the environment with prospects.

15. Invest in communication companies.

16. Finally, invest in car companies.

WHy are we hiding the truth?

Over and over again, the Muslims are hiding the truth. Why? What is the purpose? The Muslims have to be brave and go out and talk about islam, because there are so many people out there that want to have the truth. So give it to them. Don't be shy. Don't be ashamed. Be courageous.

Conference with William Feather about misinformation


At a conference in Philadelphia last year (2011), a Wharton professor noted that one of the country's biggest problems is a tsunami of misinformation. 
You can't have a rational debate about Muslims when facts are so easily supplanted by overreaching statements, broad generalizations, and misconceptions. And if you can't have a rational debate, how does anything important get done? 
As author William Feather once advised, "Beware of the person who can't be bothered by details." There seems to be no shortage of those people lately.
Here are three misconceptions that need to be put to rest.
  • Muslims who convert does it because they search for mystics or their husbands want them to convert. 
  • Muslims change their whole life because they are brain-washed
  • Muslims don't actually want to wear a scarf or grow a beard. 
These misconceptions need to be put to rest because the facts are over and over again supplanted by overreaching statements, broad generalizations, and misconceptioins. And as Muslims ar rational and want a rational debate, with history, facts, sciences and a lot of details, they prefer not to get into debate with those who are not interested in those things.

Can I go out when ever I want?

My mother has asked me several times if I can go out whenever I want to and just leave my husband and kids at home, just like my husband leaves us at home. 

But the fact is that I can go out if I want to and need to, without my kids. It is not a problem. The problem is that I do not have som many places to go to that I want to go to by myself. I am accustomed to be with the children all the time, more or less. 

and yes, when my husband was in an accident while the kids and I were in Tunisia and he was alone in Sweden, I left my children for two weeks. I do not have any problems doing that. The family took care of them. 

But the fact is also that you WILL have resposibility until they kids are adult and moving out. Until then I have to take care of them. My husband takes care of them too, but it is not just a Muslim issue, it is a global issue, because men are not helping enough at home. If they were like prophet Muhammad who sew his clothes, milked his goat and cleaned the house for his wives, then we would not write about it here. And the women are not created to clean the house or anything, but to raise and educate her children. And men are created to take care of the children AND to work. The men have two things. But , IF the woman wants to help him at home instead of a servant, THEN the husband must be thankful against her and allah that he has this diamond, this gold, this treasure, at home. 

I don't have any problem with my husband. I don't have the same life as he has. He likes to visit friends and he is very extrovert. I like friends too, but they don't call you whenever they can, especially single friends don't understand the life of a parent and they think that everyone can leave at once. That is the problem. I am introvert. I like to talk with people one-to-one. I love to reflect by myself. Many women don't understand this as they are extrovert, like my mother, and if they see me living like this they make islam+introvert Muslim= oppression. That is not true. Many muslim Women loooooove to go visit anybody anytime. They have their job and families, but they can't stand being alone. I am not like these women. I can see somebody, but after that I have to be alone for two to three days. 

My and my husbands character are good together, but these kind of thinking makes me tired. Why can't people think instead of taking their thoughts and idelas and transmit it to me and my husband. I am good in my relationship with my family. We laugh, we are joyful. We are not stressed out. We are calme and we hug a lot. We make time for these things and most of the time both I AND my husband are at home. My husband, too, likes to be at home. He don't want to "go out". Go out means for a none-Muslim, visit friends, go to concerts, go dancing at clubs, go to fitness-club, go anywhere and leave the family the whole day. The problem with this question is that Muslims don't do clubs, concerts, and any sort of Music, places with alcohol etc. 

My husband doesn't cook. That is true. But he helps me with my children, give them clothes, wash the clothes, cleans the house, takes out the trash, BUT he doesn't like to wash the dishes. When he lives alone, without us he does everything except cooking and washing up the dishes. He does that once a week (!). not healthy, but he doesn't like it. That's all. When he is alone, he is praying, reading Qur'an, going to the mosque to pray and learn Qur'an. Sometimes he is with friends. But most of the time he works. 

So, is this a problem? Can I go out when ever I want? Yes, of course I can, but I don't want to and THAT is the real "problem". 

Sincerely
/Pernilla

I am afraid of the English Defence League in Stockholm today - not the Muslims


English Defence League


The English Defence League (EDL) is a far-right street protest movement which opposes what it considers to be a spread of IslamismSharia law and Islamic extremism in the United Kingdom. At many of their demonstrations, EDL members have clashed with counter-demonstrators, including supporters of Unite Against Fascism (UAF). 

Today they gather to Stockholm which was chosen for the Global Counter Jihad rally because of the actions of an Iraqi-born Swedish citizen, Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, who travelled to central Stockholm on December 11, 2010 in order to commit mass murder in revenge for Sweden’s ‘silence’ over cartoons of Islam’s founder and the presence of Swedish troops in Afghanistan. Al-Abdaly succeeded only in killing himself, but his jihad plot is particularly noteworthy because he turned to jihad violence and hatred in England, at the Luton Islamic Centre.

The EDL have been invited by a sister group calling themselves the Swedish Defence League (SDL).

Representatives of various counter-jihad organizations from all around the world attended the meeting, including Stop Islamization of Nations (SION), Stop Islamization of America (SIOA), Stop Islamisation of Europe (SIOE), The English Defence League (EDL), The Q Society (Australia) and many other allied groups.

I live in Sweden and there are only peaceful Muslims here, even though they are harassed unto death by Media, people, companies who won't hire the Muslim etc. But I AM afraid of these Nazi-groups who, like Hitler who killed Jews during the WW2, don't have any morals and empathy, but the love for power of the people. 

alhamdolillah, the demonstration with 200 people against EDL was almost totally calm. But we must never forget what happened to the Jews in Germany and Poland, and we must never forget that the Sionist and the Nazists are those that we MUST be careful of. 

If you don't know why, then look up Breivik, who killed more than 80 Norvegian boys and girls during a meeting because their multiculture-thoughts. That everybody are equal.
