Sincere repentance has four conditions :

 Feeling bad for the sin  

Firm commitment in intention not to repeat sin (whether it happens again is not a condition if one tried his best)  

Make repentance to Allah by Du'a and asking or better crying for forgiveness  

If some person has been wronged because of this sin then one needs to make up to this person.

<p>Your religion is absolutly disgusting and evil. In Nigeria Muslims are now kidnapping very young school girls and have gone on world wide T.V, on the 06/05/14 and said they will sell the girls into slavery of any kind. That would include sexual slavery. Are you proud of that? This is all being done in the name of your god alah. And in Afghanistan the Taliban muslims kidnap young boys for suicide missions. Your religion teaches suicide and rape of young girls. Your religion is the religion of the devil. Disgusting.</p>

Always follow the path of prophet mouhumed

All of my brothers and sisterson this page! Believe in Islam!believe in Allah!follow the path of malcom X! Go to islamcan.com it has hundreds of stories and lessons of Islam! Never stray away of the path of Allah and never listen to the taunting voice of shayton/satan

Shukran. A very beautiful composure. I like the way you stand up for what you believe in, so many people misunderstand Islam, and should read this before making judgements. Good job to you my friend.

May God bless you for taking a bold stand. Today's Muslims are taking arms with distorted religious knowledge. That's why I believe it's so important for us to seek knowledge about our own religion and to care where and who our children are learning their religion from. May Allah guide you and me to the true fountain of knowledge.

To answer the question the world trade center crash. A muslim who is a muslim will say it was WRONG. NO murder or suicide is right, unless in direct self defense, and I do not classify that, certainly as self defence! Secondly, muslims around the world have denounced the WTC killings. Wether or not the muslim world was actually used as a "pawn" to "take the wrap" for the purposes of higher politics is something that escapes the thought or even the analysis of most people, yet it should not. However, as a muslim, to a muslim, I must say NO - there is no murder of the inocent that is every justified. And the prophet Muhammed (pbuh) makes clear what Allah says that "To kill one man is like killing all of manking." <br />
<br />
yes, there are many more killings happening in the muslim world. YES there is abuse of the muslim world and twisting of what it IS versus what people want to make it. IT - ISLAM is about sumitting to the will of God. Our muslim world would not be in the state it is in if we did truly seek God and turn from our ways with Subr and love. But yes, there is also agression that should not be there. Neither in palestine nor at the WTC can murder be justified and the perpetrators make me very, very sad. Not just because of what they do, but because of how they divide the world as a result of it.<br />
<br />
Darkness has no place in the light. Suicide is not condoned in Islam and you cannot explain it away no matter WHAT you do. It is either Islamic, or not. A soul that commits suicide goes to heaven and HEAVEN DOES NOT ACCEPT IT.. it goes to HELL And HELL will cast it out and it will spend eternity adrift. <br />
<br />
Jihad in turn is an INTERNAL battle against the evil of our own heart and this is why EVERY muslim should engage in Jihad IN THE HEART> not by justifying terrorism. There is no justification. White is white, black is black, light is light upon light and darkness is what it is. <br />
<br />
Let us not speak with forked tongue. And let the victims on both side rest in peace, Insh'Allah. May Allah grant us all guidance kindness, understanding and peace. It is not unrealistic to think it is possible. It is Faith. THAT is what we are called to. <br />
<br />
And THAT is from the heart!

What I wonder about all Muslims is that instead of answering a question from the heart, they seem to quote from the Quran long long passages. If you are a true Moslem, Christian, etc, then you should be able to speak from the heart as to what you believe, not quote something from the Quran or Bible.

They are using references to convey what they believe, to make analogies, and to tell the reader, or "asker" the answer they believe in, and why it pertains to their religion. For example, if you were to tell your wife you loved her, perhaps you might recite shakespeare.

Thank you for sharing! :-)<br />
<br />
The rules my faith live by and yours are very similar. The only one I would like more clarification on is 15. Fleeing from the battle (al-Anfal: 16) . My belief does not condone any warfare whatsoever, and we are taught to turn the other cheek. Is warfare what this rule applies to?<br />
<br />
Thank you for you help! :-)

This person's answer to me when I asked him about the crashes at the WTC was "perhaps it was necessary." Perhaps it was necessary to kill little children and old women in the name of Allah? Those were his exact words, perhaps it was necessary. If any of you want to communicate with this infidel monster, go ahead, but if I saw little Muslim children killed I would cry, not say, "Perhaps it was necessary." This man is as evil as those who flew the planes with little eight year old girls into the WTC. I condemn him and hope he sooner or later realizes the sin he is living.

Brother Ammad:<br />
<br />
One important issue that stood out for me was that for Sunni Muslims the FIRST source of guidance is The Book of Allah and if you cannot find the answers there, then, sunna of the prophet, then, the consensus of the scholars, etc., and so on. <br />
<br />
What I found when I researched the FIRST source, The Book of Allah for the answer to what we should be following with respect to our source of guidance is these responses from The God:<br />
<br />
In Sura 2:38 & 20:123 - In the beginning of creation The God said to "Adam" (we can discuss who "Adam" was at a later time) The God said "...surely there will come to you a guidance from Me, then whoever follows My guidance, no fear shall come upon them, nor shall they grieve." <br />
<br />
In Sura 2:120 - The God says, "...surely Allah's guidance that is THE Guidance..."<br />
<br />
Now it is important to understand at this point that if The God has the attribute of "Eternal" that means that (1) He was Alone and has no associates or partners; and (2) He brought everything into existence and He needed no help in doing so. And in Sura 2:38 guidance is included, wherein, He needs no help in guiding His servants. <br />
<br />
In Sura 25:31, The God says "...that He is Sufficient ("kafaa") as a Guide and a Helper. <br />
<br />
In Sura 5:15:16, The God says "...Indeed, there has come to you FROM ALLAH, a Light and a Clear Book." <br />
<br />
(NOTE: So that we dont get sidetracked, I can show you from the Book of Allah that “the light and a clear book” is one and the same, which is The Message, but we can discuss that later also). <br />
<br />
So, to continue, in Sura 7:43, The God fast-forwards time and gives you a glimpse of what the dwellers of heaven will say, which is, "All praise is due to Allah, who GUIDED us to this! And we would not have found the way if Allah had not guided us..." <br />
<br />
It is also important to note that in The Book of Allah He repeats that it is He Alone who Guides to the Straight Way, not Him and His Prophet. <br />
<br />
In Sura 2:272, as far as the Prophet's duty, Allah says that "Their guidance is NOT thy duty, but Allah guides whom He pleases..."<br />
<br />
In Sura 7:203, the Prophet says, "I FOLLOW ONLY that which is revealed to me from my Lord..." <br />
<br />
What was revealed to him? SURAS only. See Sura 2:23 which says, "And if you are in doubt as to that which We have revealed to our servant (the prophet) then produce an SURA (bi suraati) like it..."<br />
<br />
In Sura 93:7, Regarding the Prophet, Allah says, "And He found thee wandering (dhalal), and He GAVE thee guidance (hada)."<br />
<br />
In Sura 6:162, the Prophet says, "As for me, my Lord has GUIDED me to the Straight Path - a right way - the millat of Abraham, the upright one and he was not of the mushrikeen."<br />
<br />
Therefore, the Prophet received and followed the guidance given by Allah which were suras only. His duty was NOT to guide but to deliver The Message CLEARLY. (See Sura 13:40).<br />
<br />
The Messenger of Allah was a follower and a follower can never be an innovator. (See Sura 6:152) The Messenger says that "As for me, my Lord has GUIDED me to the Straight Path - a right deen - the millat of Abraham, the upright one, and he was not of the mushrikeen."<br />
<br />
And most importantly, if you look at what Allah says about hadith in His Book:<br />
<br />
Allah has revealed the BEST HADITH (ahsanal hadeethi) - 39:23<br />
<br />
...is it this the HADITH (el hadeethi) that you disdain? - 56:75-81<br />
<br />
...In what HADITH (hadithaan) will they then believe in after Allah and His Ayats? - 45:6<br />
<br />
And of men is he who takes frivolous HADITH to lead astray from Allah's Path with knowledge and to make it a mockery. - 31:6<br />
<br />
...And who is more truthful than from Allah's HADITH (min Allahi hadeethan)? - 4:87<br />
<br />
Given this proof text, it is my understanding that these suras clearly state that there is no need for hadith and sunna and that the only guidance you should and need to be following is The Truth found in The Message contained in Allah's Book Alone. <br />
<br />
P.S.<br />
<br />
Just a little bit of research that I also did regarding "giving salaams". <br />
<br />
When someone says to you As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakati, what is the purpose of that statment? Well, people gave me varying answers that led me to the conclusion that this is a habit that Muslims do and they really dont know why they do it but it sounds pious and a righteous thing to do, plus everyone does it. So what's the problem?<br />
<br />
Well, according to Allah's Book, <br />
<br />
(1) in Sura 6:54, Allah says to the Messenger "And when those who trust with Our Ayats (bi-ayateena) come to thee, say: salaamun alaikum..." Therefore, those of us who trust with His Ayats Alone we are to say what Allah has prescribed us to say which is, salaamun alaikum, not some invocation that has been made by someone else other than Allah; and <br />
<br />
(2) in Sura 2-:47, When Allah told Moses to go to Pharoah and tell him to let the Children of Israel go, Moses also told Pharoah that salaam (peace) is on only those who follow The Guidance (El Hudaa). <br />
<br />
Therefore, given the above, if you trust with Allah's Ayats and are following The Guidance (El Hudaa) contained His Ayats, then salaams (peace and security) is on you. If you are following anything else other than The Hudaa, then the peace and security will not be on you. <br />
<br />
Very simple.

I have a question. What is your opinion on the perpetrators of the WTC crashes? Do you think they abide in heaven as we speak? Please answer.

If you were bored with the long explanations, then why did you read it in the first place? plus, its about ARE YOU REALLY A MOSLEM.. so, do you think if we write like about 100 words so it would be clear enough for people to understand?? i dont think so..<br />
please be more respectful of what other people's believe in.. even i have a respect on you who doesn't believe in God.. i respect your perspective, how you see things! dont be so self-centered!
