Part of the Do'a Iftitah

"Verily my solats, my ibadah, my life and my death I surrender to Almighty Allah, Creator and Lord of all the worlds. Never will I associate anything with Him. So am I commanded and I am of those who are Muslims."

Islamica Magazine - An online magazine worth reading

Those of you who love enriching yourself with the latest news and views about Islam and the Muslims, might find the ISLAMICA MAGAZINE
worth your while when being online.

They write about the past, present and future matters concerning Islam and I find them well written.

The editors of this magazine are quite clever in tempting us with bits and glimpses of very interesting articles.


Those whose curiosity gets the better of them have no choice but to subscribe to the magazine to find out more about those creatively written and colorful articles about the faith and all that concerns us Muslims.

I wish that Malaysian Islamic Magazines can also be published online so that the Non Muslims can read for free or pay a small subscription fee to enable them to learn more about the actual truth regarding Islam and not just swallow untruths that are being dished out here and there further driving the wedge deeper between us , citizens of Malaysia and the rest of the world.

God willing, I would want to start something like that in the near future. I have a particular magazine in mind. I know the publishers. InsyaAllah, I'll be contacting them soon to see whether my proposal might be interesting to them.

In the meantime, dear people ; please read more about any particular issues. Double check and verify their sources as to whether they are facts or just selective reportings.

There are forces out there who would love nothing more than to see us fighting amongst ourselves and wreck this nation for proving to the world that our multi-ethnic population and multi-faith society can survive for this long without constant strifes and upheavals.

Malaysians have managed to stay above the fray and not get affected by the vile instigations and attempts to stir up trouble amongst us by certain elements of our society. Thank God!

Knowledge is Power! Those who fail to be up to date with what's going on will only be victims of misinformation and get carried away by their emotions.

Almighty Allah's very first commandment to us in the Holy Qur'an is 'I'qra! @ Read!

Read only worthwhile materials though and do not waste your precious funds and time reading about whether Siti Nurhaliza is getting this or that! :P

Select what is important and feed your mind proper. Filter out unnecessary information and avoid getting hooked to idle gossip. It makes no difference to you and me as to whether this artiste is getting married, that fella got engaged or broke off with his beau, etcetera!

At the end of the day, it is what we know about our Faith, our Society, our Nation, etcetera that's gonna help us decide what's best for us to live out our lifes.

Have a productive day people. We need to make the best out of the remaining time we have in our life's timeframe. Use your commonsense and be aware of malicious reports out there! Peace.
