Islam is the continuation of all the message of all previous messengers like Jesus, Moses, Noah, Abraham, etc (peace be upon them all). They all came to mankind with the same message. The message of peace. Peace in society, but more importantly peace within one’s own self.

In this video, Abdul Bary Yahya points to the emptiness that one always feels in life, if he doesn’t know the purpose of his own creation. He explains logically how Islam fills this emptiness by guiding mankind.

Sex Drugs and Rock-n-Roll

Post Category : Living: But Why, Video

Upon first glance, you may think this lecture is only about Islamic rulings on illicit sexual acts, problems and effects on the society regarding sex, Islamic rulings on drugs and other intoxications, or the rulings on music. However, this discussion is much more profound than that. It discusses one’s mentality and viewpoint on life. It talks about the widely accepted notions of what the set standard of achievement is in this life; how much is enough. Everyone always says to “reach for the stars”. What exactly does this entail? Who are the ones we are told to look up to and model our lives after? They are the rich, they are the beautiful; they supposedly had it all. The “Supreme Sex Goddess” – Marilyn Monroe. Elvis Presley – the “King of Rock and Roll”. They are the ones worshipped and adored by all. Everyone tells you that you have one life, so you might as well live it. Enjoy life and have fun. What are the only ways to have fun? You guessed it: Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n Roll.
