Aisha

Assalamu aleikum Warahamtullahi Wabarakatuhu!

I was on your lecture when you visited Oslo in March, and just wanted to drop by and say JazakAllaho Khayran for being with us. It was really great to have you there and your words made me reflect a lot. The one thing that stuck to my mind the most was when you said "Since that day... I have NEVER missed Salah". After hearing you say this, the sentence runs through my mind many times when I can't get myself to pray.

I say to myself "AbdurRaheem Green doesn't miss a Salah (on purpose), then why should I miss it?!". Your words made an impact, so again JazakAllaho Khayran for the lecture amd spending time with us! I really hope you come visit Oslo again and InshaAllah, next time I'll try to bring my neighbour too (as you said that everyone who had a neighbour should do or should've done).

May Allah bless you and reward you, both in this life and the next, for every moment you spend for Him and His Religion. Ameen!

Wassalam,

Aisha from Norway

ARGcomment: nice to know that what I say has some effect! May Allah bless you always.

Assalamu Alaikum Br. Abdur Raheem

What do you think of this website...is it a good one to recommend to Jewish people?

http://www.jews-for-allah.com/

ARGcomment: I looke dthrough it years ago, but not being an ex jew I'm not sure, but generally those who belolnged to a religion and changed are better informed about the sort of things those people need to hear.

Brother, another doubt that i had was with regards to shaytaan. Is it that every evil whisper that comes to our heart is from this cursed one? Or can it originate from within men? i have many questions here, but i think if u cud throw some light on this, it may become clear to me inshallah!! I did listen to a lecture on satan by brother murtaza khan, and it was truly enlightening. But just want to make sure if man can be the source of evil without any intervention of satan. I thank u for ur help and assistance bro!! Salaam.

ARGcomment: There is your nafs as well, so some of the evil prompting do come from your desires

To live a pious 'God-centered' life in the Western world is a big challange. It's hard to be a real Muslim in a traditional Muslim country, but if you manage to stay a Muslim in the West without turning to hedonism, consumerism & other Western values - then it's something to be really proud of... the bigger the challange the greater the reward :))) May Allah guide our brother Abdur-Raheem & all of us to that.

assalaamalaikum
brother green can you please publish the list of books that you recommend for us, i've been waiting for long

ARGcomment: You might have to wait even longer I'm afraid. Its something I need to spend some time on which I'm finding hard at the moment ,

Noamaan

Brother, can u please send me the soft copy of the presentation which u gave on "Inner dynamics of Outward worship"!! Also, u may not reply to my last two questions as now i understood them well, Thanks to Allah that happened i read those topics addressed in the Qur'an. I thank u brother. Salaam.

You haven't put a link from this site to the IERA website...I'm sure the brothers and sisters who visit this blog would be great supporters of IERA....FB

ARGcomment: I haven't written anything on this blog for yonks! Inshallah, things will change.

Noamaan

Thank u bro! I truly thank u as u managed to giv me some time from ur busy schedule. Brother, i have many doubts and issues to be addressed. Will u be able to find some time to help me understand those? I do have people around who cud answer to me, but either those answers are unsatisfactory or lacking proper understanding of knowledge and its application. for example:
when i asked u as to which scholar i must follow, u replied that when i know the book of Allah, i'l know the scholar! which was the most wise answer i hav ever heard from any person. Not only this but in many issues which u clarified to me. I dont want to loose this means of communication. Also in the time when my eeman is fluctuating with very high amplitudes, i need u to help me bro. My only request is to please make out some time for this. And if u r not able to do that, then no problem, but things will become bit difficult for me. May Allah make it easy for all. Salaam alaika.

ARGcomment: Bro I will do what I can with Allah's help.

Aisha

Bismillah ArRahmaan ArRaheem!

Assalamu aleikum again Brotha ARG!

(hope you read the whole comment and tell me what you think even though it's a little too long, sorry!)

Just thought it would be cool to comment on this post of yours as well 'cause I didn't read it before now.

I remember you saying (when you were in Norway) that Muslims must stop compromising with their religion, and that is one of the most important things I've heard lately. It made me reflect on how I, and unfortuneatly (too) many other Muslims, compromise with ou religion every single day. It's quite frightening how Muslims are compromising with no limitations.

"The boss will fire me if I don't handshake him/her", "The jobinterviewer would think I'm a wimp if I don't look him/her in the eyes" and stuff like that. OK, I understand why this is very hard for someone, but people should start reflecting and understand that it's awful that we are more afraid of what PEOPLE think of us than what ALLAH SWT thinks of us. I think it's great that you mentioned the "materialistic"-issue in the interview. Alhamdolillah!

People don't realize that all this materialism is controlling us like we are all marionettes, May allah SWT protect us!

Another thing which I really find interesting, but also completely frightening!, is the "Contest 2"-thing! WHAT'S THAT?!

OK, it's sad when a British soldier dies, I do condemn unfair killing and other bad stuff that happens in war. But can someone force me to condemn it?! Why don't people condemn the killing of all the innocent people in Afghanistand and Iraq?! I can't and I don't force people to feel sorry for them or condemn the unfair killing!

And who has the right to classify me as an extremist/fanatic just because I think homosexuality is a sin? And another thing is that most people think that ONLY Muslims say that homoexuality is a sin. HELLO?! Didn't anyone hear what the pope said about it? What about ATHEISTS who don't accept homosexuality? There's NOT just Muslims who look upon homosexuality as a sin.

Supporting Jihad would make me an exremist? Well.. go and get some information about what Jihad RELLY is before classifying me as something!

What's wrong with promoting the Sharia Law?! I claim that following the Sharia Law (as it is meant to be followed) would make the most just and awesome society! People just have to go learn what the Sharia Law really is first, InshAllah!

And then to the next point: I think that it is waaay easier to practice Islam much better in the West than it is in many, many "Islamic" countries. (The reason why I said "Islamic" ist because I don't really consider such countries as Islamic if it's not easy to practice Islam there). In the West we have something called freedom, which is hard to find many places in the Muslim world (We can't hide the fact, but unfortuneatly WE have to take part in the negative aspects of Muslims because of these unfair societies). Because of the freedom, we have all the facilities and much more which help us do non-essential things in addition to doing the essential things in Islam properly. So I agree on that, and that's why I think we have to take make the best out of all our precious opportunities. Inshallah! Alhamdolillah!

But we have to remember that even though we have all these opportunities, we need to be aware of the materialism - That, I think, is a great challenge to ourselves. The most important and one of the most difficult Jihaads through our lives is to cut connections to materialism.

O' Allah, make it easy for us because You Are Only Sustainer, Most Merciful and Beneficient! - Ameen!

Take Care!

Wassalaam!

Aisha from Norway

ARGcomment: Nice comment Aisha! Mashallah!

Jallal Lamuadni

As Salaamu alaikum waRahmatullah wa Barakatuh

I have a question to you about another topic. i apologize for that. but i'm asking here because i don't know wehre else. i've heard your lecture about the origin of evolution. you said that it is possible that Allah created the creatures through stages, because there's no evidence which excludes it. it's just that things can't evolve randomly.

so my question is if Adam could possibly be apelike first? Could Allah possibly mean in Sura At-Tin (adn other verses) that he created man in that form after stages? i just don't like that idea, so is there a clear evidence from qur'an that human beings were created as they are and excludes any other idea? not that i won't accept if theres not, i am just asking.

Jazaka Allahu khairan was-salaamu alaikum

ARGcomment: If you listen to my lecture on the topic that has been commented about you'll find the answer. Briefly, no. I don't think Adam evolved. He was created miraculously. This is clear from the apparent texts of the Quran.

Jalal Lamuadni from Germany

Assalaamu alaikum. Thank you for your answer. I really don't know why i didn't noticed you making it clear in the dars.

whatever i want to tell you that i had watched many lectures from you about the deception of the world. and the best one was the last i watched. i didn't expect it beacuse it was an old one. this is what i am speaking about: http://www.youtubeislam.com/video/3121/Sex-Drugs-n-Rock-n-Roll--Is-there-more-to-life
i think it was that you maked it here more clear that human beings never get enough. if you recieve fame or money, it is just for a short moment and you want to get more of it, and it never stops and never satisfies. in this lecture you gave more examples of stars also which made it clearer. this made me realize the truth about it and made me gave up on those things. Allhamdulillah. I think after that i also try to get more knowledge May Allah reward and protect you.

Another thing is that i watched dawa in the park volume four and five. you talking harsh there. even if it doesn't affect the people you were addressing. besides that its very fun to see: it gives Muslims or at least me a good feeling because i know we Muslims still have brave Knights (masha Allah) at our side. i think this gives Muslims the courage they need. this is the same with debates. the only thing i don't like about debates are the muslims in the audience shouting in a, pow i feel, ugly way. i alway think after this: please muslims be ashamded." nut maybe just my perception is wrong.

One last thing. When i was watching a lecture of yours, once my father came in and saw you giving darz. immediately he asked in a funnily: "Is this Jesus?"

May Allah reward you. And may Allah increase our knowledge and guide us the straight path.
Assalaamu alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh

Jalal Lamuadni from Germany

about the lecture about evolution. maybe i just didnt saw the lecture you mean.

Ahmed

Asalamu calaikum brother Green

i was wondering, do can you put together an
all-inclusive DVDs for DAWA spcializing for western people. i live in America and i want to do street dawa, just handing them over to people.

i know everybody has diffrant background so it will be hard to put it all in one, but that's is the challange.

ARGcomment: Inshallah, its coming..check out www.iera.org.uk
most people where i live are liberal athiest or agnostic. but we also have evangelical christains.

brother we would love it if you and some other brothers(mybe bilal phelips) and undertake a project like this.

As salamu Alaicum,
to all the brothers/sisters living in the west. I think at least u can do this-

Go to this link, and spread it to all:

http://www.ahya.org/news/hinduawake.pdf

And go to this link,
- The proof that Islam is the Truth-

http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=B8104FF1ED1AB781

and download these videos ( or any other way u can find them) make DVD with those and and drop them to your non muslim's mailbox. This really works, a marketing study shows- Direct mail advertizing with DVDs generate 200% 600% more response-

This is very very Important.
Allahu Alam.

Aisha

Assalamu aleikum, brother ARG!

Hope everything is going well, by Allahs Grace!

Just randomly dropping by...

I'm goin to Pakistan 23rd of June, a few days left. My mother and my two younger sisters have been there for 3 weeks now, so I'm lookin forward to seeing them again, InshaAllah!

At the same time I'm a bit scared after knowing what's going on there in these days, the bombs and stuff! I have to admit that I'm a bit afraid of dying there and never coming back, cause I have so many things I wanna do before I die.

OK, too much of my sentimental talk, heheh!

What are your plans for the Summer? You'll be on the Da'wah Tour InshaAllah, right?
Too bad I'm in Pakistan when the Tour is, I'm sure it's going to be a huge Success by the Grace of Allah SWT!

Keep up the good work and take a trip to Norway to visit us again as soon as you get time!

And btw, PLEASE don't forget to make Du'a for the people of Pakistan, especially the people of Swat! :)

Peace, bro! Take care!

Assalamu Alaykum Wr Wb!

We can download these viedows, and make DVDs and give them to muslims and non muslims.

Or we can send the link to other people by e mail, blog, face book/ my space etc.

Dear Imam Abdur Raheem Green,

I am slightly confused about your stance on democracy. Is it a halal way of governance?

ARG comment: This depends what we mean by democracy. If it means that people can legislate in opposition to the laws of God, then this is clearly not correct from Islamic position as far as I understand.
