Meaning is everything. If you’re not getting is right, you’re getting it wrong
A typo, or typographical error, is a fairly commonplace thing and an inherent danger of the printed word. Historically such errors have at times produced catastrophic and very costly results. The lack of a hyphen in some computer coding cost NASA hundreds of millions of dollars in an aborted rocket launch and there are many more such examples. But by far the worst and most deadly typo in history is that of the Mardin fatwa written originally by Ibn Taymiyya (d 1328) who was from the Mardin area of Turkey at the time of the Mongol invasion. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibn_Taymiyyah
To scholars and students of this subject, this fatwa problem is well known, but for many who are not familiar with the subject, it is worth revisiting here as the fatwa is suddenly of immense topicality. The text was, and is still used by many militant terroristic groups to support and justify their killings of countless numbers of innocent…

“And We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], the Book in truth, confirming that which preceded it of the Scripture and as a criterion over it. So judge between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations away from what has come to you of the truth. To each of you We prescribed a law and a method. Had Allah willed, He would have made you one nation [united in religion], but [He intended] to test you in what He has given you; so race to [all that is] good. To Allah is your return all together, and He will [then] inform you concerning that over which you used to differ.” (Qur’an 5:48)
So we should not waste our time with selfishness – but vie with one another to “race to [all that is] good” for the sake of high Truth/high Love/high Peace/high Justice/God (for in reality they are One and the same).
“So whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see it [on the Judgement Day],
And whoever does an atom’s weight of evil will see it [on the Judgement Day].” (Qur’an 99: 7-8)
This is narrated by the wonderful Mufti Menk. His positive attitude is heart-warming.
Our challenge: FIRST: We must understand and relay the TRUTH. Continue reading

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Religion is very easy, and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way.

Hitherto unseen evidence given to the Chilcot Inquiry by British intelligence has revealed that former prime minister Tony Blair was told that Iraq had, at most, only a trivial amount of weapons of mass destruction (WMD)… and subsequently ordered the production of dossiers to “find the intelligence” that he wanted to use to justify going to war.

The Famous “War on Loonacy” Speech
This is the original [PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN] speech that the President had prepared prior to when the Twin Towers came down on September 11th, 2001, but delivered soon after they came down and which was written 12 years later, give or take a decade:
Mr. Speaker, Mr. President Pro Tempore, Members of Congress, and fellow Americans:
We have seen the courage of passengers, who allegedly rushed murderers to save others on the ground (which certainly is a heroic act, that mustn’t be belittled – even if the official story isn’t true) passengers like an exceptional man named Todd Beamer. And we pray to God for him and his family – swearing ‘what we know not what’ should the government be telling us the littlest of white lies. Like, that their plane wasn’t shot down or some other such ‘need to know basis’ from more classified sources. We all know how our government, “Big Brother, Loves us”… We all know how we truly found the weapons of mass destruction they specifically told us was there in Iraq, did we not? So with that in mind, would you please help me to welcome his wife, Lisa Beamer, here tonight. [Applause] Continue reading
