Tony Blair’s sister-in-law converts to Islam

Posted in Islamic news on October 30, 2010 by Muslimah

Tony Blair’s sister-in-law has converted to Islam after having what she describes as a “holy experience” during a visit to Iran.

Journalist and broadcaster Lauren Booth, 43 – Cherie Blair’s sister – now wears a hijab whenever she leaves her home, prays five times a day and visits her local mosque whenever she can.

She decided to become a Muslim six weeks ago after visiting the shrine of Fatima al-Masumeh in the city of Qom.

“It was a Tuesday evening and I sat down and felt this shot of spiritual morphine, just absolute bliss and joy,” she said in an interview today.

When she returned to Britain, she decided to convert immediately.

Booth – who works for Press TV, the English-language Iranian news channel – has stopped eating pork and reads the Qur’an every day. She is currently on page 60.

Booth has stopped drinking alcohol and says she has not wanted to drink since converting.

Before her spiritual awakening in Iran, she had been “sympathetic” to Islam and has spent considerable time working in Palestine, she said, adding that she hoped her conversion would help Blair change his presumptions about Islam.

Wear a Hijab Day

Posted in Islamic news, Think about it on September 12, 2010 by Muslimah

 

 “Join us! If you are also horrified by the recent outrageous fear mongering of the right wing against American Muslims then here is a way to push back. I am not a Muslim but I plan to wear the hijab on 9/11 as a gesture to American Muslims that they are full citizens of this country and deserve the same rights as the rest of us. Concerned men might wear skull caps in solidarity with us women.”

From: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=144913692209438&ref=ts#!/group.php?gid=144913692209438

From Muslimah: There are good people out there that are looking for peace and not hate. We might find a large number of people who are against Islam and believes that we are the terrorists and this religion is only about hate. Yet, if they just give themselves the time to read and understand about Islam, I ‘m sure that all these misconceptions will be solved. May Allah take them to the right path Ameen.

She was killed because of her veil

Posted in Islamic news on July 6, 2009 by Muslimah

A veiled Egyptian mother was stabbed to death because she wore the hijab (veil). The killing raises fears about the rising tide of anti-Muslim feelings in Europe.

In a Dresden park, Marwa took her 3-year old son to play. A German man, probably piqued by her headscarf, insulted her and called her a “terrorist”. Witnesses that were near Marwa heard the German man and filed a case against him in German courts. When she won the case and the court fined him 750 Euros for having abusing her, he appealed against the verdict.

As Marwa stood in court on July 1st, 2009, to give evidence, the 28-year old man took out a knife and stabbed her 18 times. Present were her son and her husband, who ran to rescue her. But the assailant stabbed her husband 3 times. A German security officer in court shot the husband in the leg probably mistaking him for the assailant. The husband, who was scheduled to defend his Ph. D. thesis in genetic engineering in a couple of weeks, lapsed into a coma and was taken to hospital suffering from serious injuries to the stomach and liver.


The criminal has been stabbing her for 8 minutes infront of her 3 year old child, without any intervention from court security and when they started to take an action they shot her husband. Marwa’s husband is now hospitalized and not even aware that his beloved wife has passed away.

May Allah be with you Ameen.

Now the important part is, Why aren’t the European reporters and newspapers talking about this story? Why is it all from Egyptian reporters and newspapers? This did not happen in Egypt. It happened in Germany in a German Court, in front of German police and a German judge.what kind of world are we living in? Should we always be shown as terrorists, with first page headlines saying “Muslim extremists”? Yet, a story like this is never reported in any western media. 

suppose that this crime signed by a Muslim against a non-Muslim
what were the world reaction be?

 Are we terrorists now?

Pete Doherty Turns to Islam in Jail

Posted in Islamic news on June 11, 2008 by Muslimah

Junkie rocker Pete Doherty has turned to Islam while locked up in jail — and is reading the Koran to help him cope with life inside.

The ‘Babyshambles’ star, 29, requested a translation of the Arabic book after being put in an isolated cell at London’s tough Wormwood Scrubs prison last week — and he is said to be “lapping it up”.

A source said: “He’s been reading the Koran since he went into segregation.

“He’s got a lot of Muslim friends and they’ve been on at him for ages to study it. Now he’s on his own he’s got time on his hands to study it.

“I’m surprised how much it has calmed him down as he was very on edge inside. He definitely seems more chilled. He’s lapping it up and really interested in it. I think it’s helping him in there.”
