Assalamu'alaikum wr wb.
Brothers of Islam!
Ok, i've been wanting to sound like an imam for a long time. Heh.
I'm Muhammad Shahrul, a new member to understanding-islam forums. I'm fifteen in November and I live in Singapore. I am sad to say i got very interested in theology just recently, perhaps a year or so. I hope to learn from my fellow Muslims around the world, and i have reached this site. I just want to express the love I feel for ALLAH Ta'ala, and all my brothers and sisters of Islam.
Let us all work together in fighting for God's true religion. It doesn't have to be in the form of the greater jihad. As Rasulullah once said, which meant something like this, "Fight by the sword; it is justifiable, because it does not kill the innocent." We don't really have to attack the People of the Book with errors in the Bible and what the Quran has to say. We have the faith, my friends, the hidayat of Allah. Let us strive to improve ourselves, before we improve others. We are the cause of any bad image cast upon our religion by the Kafrs; we have to show them what we really represent. Let us have Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as our 'Idol', rather than the American Idol, Arabian Idol, Malaysian Idol, Singapore Idol, etc. Let us hold this fort we have, that the Holy Prophet suffered and even died for.
There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad PBUH is His Messenger.
Assalamualaikum wr wb.
