if you need friends, go to a mosque..
Body Count by Religion- has Islam historically been the cause of most world violence and conflict?
Results of a study done by the Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute in Amman, Jordan- on the death toll for both violence in general and specifically, genocide (from 0-2008 BCE).
The study found that Muslim societies/governments were responsible for less than 6% of violence in general historically, and less than 8% of genocides historically.
I'm sorry about your family :/ We're here with you, always. And I admire you for your strength in faith. May Allah shower all His beautiful blessings upon you and keep you healthy and happy. Maybe give your family a bit of time and they'll accept as you are. Remember that the rest of us muslims see you as our brother, and we love you. :)
An ambulance directly from the central mosque in Edinburgh to Syria - that’s our goal and we need your support. Please help us to raise what we can to pay towards the cost of the ambulance, the supplies and the fuel to drive it to Syria: £8,000 is the target.
The ambulance will be parked outside the central mosque in Edinburgh for jummah salah tomorrow (24/05), and we are asking congregation members to donate towards the project.
The ambulance will join a convoy sponsored by Human Care Foundation Worldwide.

i had a really tough day at school today with the whole woolwich thing, its my last day today and as the only muslim (and hijabi) im my school i was just bombarded with questions and i felt really isolated and targeted,
I’m so sorry to hear that.
You shouldn’t have to put up with that at, especially not at school, in such a formative environment; it’s just not on at all…
Please don’t let it ruin your confidence in defending Islam, as there’s lots to stand against and the (Western) world needs to know the truth.
If you ever need to speak to me about anything, please know that you can, anonymously or otherwise.
Is your new found religion really worth losing your family over?
There’s a passage in the Qur’an that says you should obey your parents until the point they want you to become a non-believer. It’s actually a narrative about Ibrahim (as) I believe…
I guess the thing is that I haven’t made being Muslim and having my family mutually exclusive, my family have done that. I’m quite happy to be Muslim with my family, but that can’t happen for reasons beyond my control.
I met a guy at the mosque today who asked me about how my parents were taking it; I just said “not well” and he invited me to Glasgow to meet his family and stuff.
Apparently having a family and being Muslim is something that can work, my parents just don’t see it that way…
You're a great guy with a great blog and I have a huge amount of respect for you and your opinions.
I’m not all that, honestly.
It’s a reflection on your character that you would send me this though. :) Thank you.
Where’s the uproar?
Our masjid has a security guard because some people can’t distinguish between a murderer who is Muslim and a bunch of old men with walking sticks and cataracts who are praying.
