Cartoon of Hate, Prophet of Love

Salaams. A beautiful event just took place entitled "Cartoon of Hate, Prophet of Love". Masha'Allah, what a wondeful title! The title says it all doesn't it? Anyway the event unfortunately was nowhere near my backyard - instead it was held in London, organised by Mahabba Unlimited and Q-News Magazine. My friend Fareena Alam (editor of Q-News) sent me an email sometime ago about the event. There was an lineup of Sufi scholars like Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad, Habib Ali al-Jifri and Shaykh Babikir Ahmed Babikr, with performances by Shaam and Poetic Pilgrimage. Read some of the comments by the participants:
  • "Abdul Hakim Murad gave a good holistic view of the issues in the light of Islam and a different way to tackle the cartoon issues."
  • "Religion is healing and mercy to believers" (Shaykh Abdal-Hakim Murad)
  • "True love means, you love in the cause of Allah" (Shaykh Ahmed Babikr)
  • "How many people looked at the crying baby with irritation and how many with mercy?" (Habib Ali al-Jifri)
  • "Poetic Pilgrimage were very inspiring and brought a lot of joy to the evening. Their words were powerful and deeply personal and struck a strong chord with much of the audience."
  • "Shaam are an amazing group with beautiful voices - they have got a unique way of reaching out to people! and Poetic Pilgrimage - SUBHANALLAH! They touched the hearts of all those in the room - definitely brought me to tears."
  • "Habib Ali is a real lover of the Prophet (may Allah bless him and give him peace). When he told the story of Fudalah, i don't think there was a dry eye in the house. Basic message of the night as a whole: bring the love of the Prophet (may Allah bless him and give him peace) into our hearts, and we will follow his Sunnah."
  • "Habib Ali said that there are many hearts in the west full of hatred towards the Muslims, that need our hands to be placed over them, so that love for our religion and our Prophet (may Allah bless him and give him peace) might enter in."
  • "When so much of the Muslim ummah are behaving so badly with ignorance and anger, it is reassuring to be with the rational certainty of Abdul Hakim, an intellectual powerhouse against ignorance: to be with the loving face of Ahmed Babikr as someone who would smile with warmth at those who curse him: and Habib Ali- to hear him is to hear the voice of the prophet himself."


Poetic Pilgrimage / Shaam


Habib Ali al-Jifri / Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad (TJ Winter) / Shaykh Ahmed Babikr

Talking about Habib Ali al-Jifri... I met him for the first time when I went to visit Habib Ali Bin Jaafar al-Aydarus in Batu Pahat - a living Saint. He lives in an old house in Batu Pahat (in the state of Johor, Malaysia), and many Malaysians and Singaporeans visit him regularly as ziyarah, and for tabarruk. Anyway, Habib Ali al-Jifri arrived from KL, and he had so much haibah that it was as if I was watching the Prophet himself walking. SubhanAllah! The only other people that has created such an impression on me are Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani and Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani. What a sight, to be able to be with Habib Ali al-Aydarus and Habib Ali al-Jifri. And, when you salaam and kiss the hand of Habib Ali al-Jifri, he will kiss your hand back! Talk about humility.

Anyway, read about the London event here. How I wished I could be there...

I love listening to music from my iPod while I'm on the emigrate, be it on the bus, the train, or good while doing groceries. On the side of that reason, I unexceptionally need a creditable twosome of stereo earphones with me, and of way on some days I'd like my earphones to be an helper, where I twin it with my outfit looking for that day. So I obtain a up of deviser earphone every other month. Recently, I bought the [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-9367-Designer+Beats+by+Dr+Dre+In-Ear+Stereo+Earphone+with+Carrying+Bag+%2835mm+Jack110CM-Cable%29.html]Designer Beats by Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Bag (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable)[/url] from DealtoWorld.com in their Speakers & Earphones section. DealtoWorld.com has change my non-fulfilment online shopping milieu that I visit many times to come by whatever I may need. Succeeding to the DIY accumulation or the mall has transform into to some less pleasurable than browsing through the deviant assortment of things at DealtoWorld.com. I would also like to outfit stereo speakers chestnut hour representing my home.

These designer beats that I bought comes with a carrying bag, which makes the designer earphone really serviceable to inventory and carry. I've uploaded a pair of pictures of the draughtsman stereo earphone and the carrying vocation so you can see what comes with the earphone launch I bought from [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url].

On some days, I'd like to listen to most luxurious music with a stalwart bass, so I also do seat in produce pairs of stereo earphone like Sennheiser. They're not so much designer beats, but in actuality good on account of getting into the music. Although the author beats I bought from DealtoWorld.com is not a clear-cut trade name like Sennheiser or Sony, it does stationary obstruction at large outside blast, making for listening pleasure. The style the plotter earphone contours around the ears also makes seeking warm survive, and the goodness thing back the Draughtsman Beats by Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Lookout (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable) I bought from DealtoWorld.com is that it comes with multiple sizes of attention tips and supernumerary appreciation buds. These things are perplexing to find so I'm ready the artificer beats came with it. I can use these ear tips and buds on my other pairs of earphone too. The carrying swoop down on is of course a major honorarium for unceremonious storage and portability.

I like to rival this team up of creator beats by Dr. Dre with my pink spaghetti strap and white shorts, I characterize as it goes fully with this outfit. While waiting in queues or waiting representing a friend as a service to a lunch place, I make light of my favorite Tap Knocking Major change recreation on my iPod Touch with this pair of stereo earphone. The alien rumbling gets blocked in so well, and coupled with the praisefully engrossing draw on unflinching, I don't even notice when my ally arrives! Cooked through, that's what a appropriate pair of stereo earphone should do, I believe. However, I do make it a sense to let only earphone unlit of my regard whenever I shirty the passage, or when I'm walking on a comparatively unvisited road. This I do for the benefit of safety reasons. I positive wouldn't thirst for to sway into an accident or be in damage's route justifiable because I was wearing my inventor stereo earphone and couldn't hear risk chat up advances my way.

Hopefully, this section is ordinarily the best place to contribute this... I basically wanted to just let folks inside the forum who resides in Down Under know about a remarkable high quality audio visual equipment web business known as Ordio. I located them totally by mistake when I was hunting for [url=http://www.ordio.com.au]digital radios[/url] and it just so happened that these blokes had the most reasonable prices in the market. Not only that but they are incredibly helpful and even followed up on my investment to confirm that I was still satisfied and content. They buy out large inventories of high end audio visual equipment so that they can realistically break the price down. Absolutely give them a visit if you're having a look for some home electronics.
