From Jubair bin Nufair who said that he heard Abu ad-Dardaa, while he was at the end of his prayer, having finished the tashahhud, seeking refuge in Allaah from nifaaq (hypocrisy), and he exceeded in seeking refuge from it.  So Jubair said: And what is it with you O Abu ad-Dardaa, and with nifaaq?  So he said: Leave us alone, leave us alone.  For by Allaah, a man turns away from his deen in just a single hour, and so he becomes totally devoid of it (i.e. loses it altogether).” (Siyar A’laam in-Nubulaa 2/383 and ad-Dhahabee said “Its Isnaad is Saheeh”.).

Quoted from “Imaan Builder 4: The Observance of Sincerity in One’s Speech and Action,” accessible via SalafiPublications.com, and Allah knows best.

The Quran and Sunnah both emphasize the importance of time in the life of a Muslim. Allaah swears in the beginning of many Soorahs (chapters) by time or moments in time, for example Allaah Says (what means): By the dawn and the ten nights (i.e. the first ten days of the month of Thul-Hijjah)…” [Quran 89: 1-2]

Scholar talks of Jihadists during Muslim educational forum

by Matthew Brown- Baltimore Sun (source)

The use of Islam to justify killing is “an innovation” in the religion, a Muslim scholar told a Baltimore conference Saturday, and warned: “Most innovations lead to hellfire.”

“The Satan always has people that he will be able to deceive,” Dr. Waleed Basyouni said during a presentation he called “Reclaiming Islam from the Jihadists.”

Hundreds of Muslims went to the Baltimore Convention Center on Saturday to hear Basyouni and others promote what organizers described as a moderate, modern interpretation of Islam for the United States and the West. It was the opening day of Ilm Fest, an annual education conference previously staged in New York, Chicago and Toronto.

On the agenda for this year’s event, which concludes today, are talks on reconciling Muslim practice with U.S. citizenship, Islam and social justice, and domestic violence in the Muslim community.

“One of our main focuses is to try to tackle different challenges that Muslims face today, particularly youth growing up here,” organizer Mobeen Vaid said. “It’s really to give people a way to maintain their Muslim identity in America and telling them how to positively contribute to society.”
