Importance of Sunnah & Hadiths

By Admin

There are two main fundamental sources of knowledge in Islam – The Qur’an and the Hadeeth. Often people associate Islam with teachings and commandments of only Qur’an; this is true for both Muslims and non-Muslims. However this attitude of ignoring the Hadeeth or Sunnah has lead to many misunderstandings about the already misunderstood way of life, Islam. Best example being that of the perception of Islam promoting hatred. Such doubts and baseless allegations arise mostly due to partial study of Islamic literature.

Sex Drugs and Rock-n-Roll

By Admin

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.
