"IM THE BEST SKIIER THERE IS IN THE GROUP INNIT ABBA ?? TELL THEM ...... TELL THEM ABOUT MY AMAZING JUMPS I DID"

lol@abba, is it abba from sweden?....are you going to sing dancing queen or waterloo,abba????

salaams to abdullah from auntie mirs......weird or what but your auntie uzma sent me an email and there was a link to this website, and imagine my shock to find my lil sis and my two nieces piccy on the site...abduraheem you could of told us about this site!

Ma sha Allah looks like it was an inspiring trip.

Except you know that even the scholars who do allow photos don't allow pictures of women to be displayed especially without hijab so I'd advise you to take those off the site..

in reply to sister sakeenah. my understanding regarding the trip was for dawah purposes, one of the girls on the pictures has just recently started to practice islam, the other two have started to take an interest, where as before they wouldn't even speak about it, and I believe abduraheem putting up the pictures on this site might encourages other "would be sisters" to join in some of these dawah courses, as many people interested in islam are discouraged from taking part as they think they will be forced to wear hijabs, grow beards and pray immediately. we need to show that everyone is welcome to our dawah activities....its very important! after speaking to the girls myself they found the trip very beneficial and informative and all three them and their friends can't wait for next year trip. your sister in islam mirs!

Salaam! Tjenna tjabba hallo!I was thrilled to read about your dawa skiing trip to Sweden. I'm actually swedish myself, lived in Helsingborg for 12 years, jag ljuger inte! We (my family) moved to England recently. It would have been so good if you had made the trip before we left, u could have hung out at my place! Sweden needs a huge dose of Dawah and I was flabbergasted to read that SVT did a li'l documentary on you guys. I really need to watch that! once again I'm so happy that the Swedes got a chance to listen to you, hope theres a sequel to it =)

Ha det sa bra!

Salaam, i don't understand how you could go on such a trip with female members that werent even in hijab? And in a mixed group of boys and girls.

I find this very confusing, and nothing like the modesty haya and pardah that i know islam requires.

It seems like no one is truly practising islam how it is supposed to be, except this one race of people whom i know from personal experience, whom, SubhanAllah, are when i see things like this, truly amongst, if not, the best of the muslims, on earth.

May Allah help them through their hardships and grant them jannah for their efoorts, whilst we give dawah to already muslim kids and take them skiing.

Maybe the muslim group, that organised the trip, should have taken them skiing to North West Pakistan, and seen those people that remain after the earth quake and see how much skiing those orphans and widows and men are doing in the most beautiful scenic snowy moutains?

Keeping "purda" is of course important, but I'm not sure where you are from, but here in the west (and even in many Muslim countries) hijab is not that common, and mixing is the norm. Please believe me, there was more segregation during this trip than most of those kids have in the rest of year!!
As for what I was doing there, well that is explained in my blog!
There is something I recall from the Gospels, when Jesus (alahis salam) was being haranged and reviled by the Pharasees and Saduccees for spending his time with tax collectors and other wayward sorts. They ask his disciples: "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and 'sinners'?"
On hearing this, Jesus said, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice. For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
You can't give the medicine if you refuse to meet the patient.
Please be careful how you judge and make judgement of others.
If your words and condemnation is unfair you will not die before they come true about you!
You talk about the orphans and widows in Pakistan in the mountains, indeed may Allah help them and you critisize those that went skiing. I surmise from your words that you see this as some sort of unacceptable indulgence to do so while others are in such need then I ask...
Do you have no luxuries and comforts in your life?
Do you never eat a morsal more than you need?
Do you have no more clothes, shoes, than is absolutely necessary or talk on the phone a second more than necessary or spend a single dollar/pence/rupee above your absolute need?
How do you enjoy foods while others starve?
How do you own a phone when there are those who do not even have water to drink....
If any of these apply to you then how do critisize others for what you do yourself?
How do know that this trip that these people make in a country surrounded by sins of all sorts, where every day is a fight just as hard as staying alive, if not harder. This fight though is a fight to retain one's Iman and deen.
How do you now that trips like these, with all their faults, are the only things keeping them upon whatever little of Islam they have?
How do know the Muslims they meet and talk with and listen to the advice of does not save them from the greatest calamity of kufr?
Some of these kids parents who are muslim don't even want their kids to follow Islam! This is the chance they get to actually be with some Muslims.
This is the reality.

I don't know any race of people following the deen as it should be. Please tell us who they are? We are waiting with baited breath!
Please don't tell me you mean the people of the North West Pakistan, cause I'll just have to laugh out loud!
Did you know that the day of the first earthquake there was a homosexual wedding there?
These are people some of whom are so tribalistic that in places one village does not even help another village just a mile down the road.
These are people amongst whom there are those who's idea of justice is when a man has sex out side of marriage with a girl in the village the punishment is that that man's sister is gang raped by the men of the village! Where's the purda in that?
There are bandits and gangsters who robbed convoys of aid, and politicians there who collected money and used it for themselves.
I'm sure there are good people. It seems from what I have heard that "race" harbours its fair share of unsavoury characters also!
May Allah guide them and us.
In the end the fact is that in the time of the Prophet (swas) there were companions who had wealth, and lived in comfortable homes, and there were those who slept on the benches of the mosque, such as the sahabal suffa, but the Propeht (swas)never forced people to give up their wealth except what was due of zakat.
It is true that Allah will ask us about our wealth and on what we spent it, yet Allah knows best those who express gratitude to him and how.
We are permitted to enjoy the lawful things of this life.
A man came to the Prophet and said "Oh Messenger of Allah! I love shoes and don't like anyone to have more beautiful shoes than me, is that pride."
"No!" the Prophet replied "Allah is beautiful and loves that which is beautiful. Pride is looking down on others and rejecting the truth when it comes to you."
Inshallah, next time I ski, I'll remeber those who are less fortunate. Maybe we will be motivated to help them, so even more good may come out of it.

I learn from the silence, to learn from intolerance to tolerance, from this cruel kindness, but strangely enough, I am ungrateful to these teachers.Do you think so?
