“Remember GOD!” Happy Holiday Season To All..
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّححِيْمِ
And your Lord says;
Call on Me;
I will Answer your (Prayer):
– Quran 40:60
“To every People have
We appointed Rites
and Ceremonies which they
– Quran 22:67
“Remember GOD!” everyone
“Happy Holiday Season“
according to your
“Glory to GOD!”
“All Prayer belong to GOD!”
“All Worship be to GOD!”
Salvation of GOD is for all Mankind
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَحِيْمِ
“So when you have accomplished your holy
rites, Celebrate the Praises of GOD, as you
used to celebrate the praises of your
father’s, – Yes, with far more Heart and soul.”
– Quran 2:200
Do Not Confuse remembrance ذِكِر with worship تَعْبُدُ . To worship anything other than GOD is a sin punishable with eternal Hell. When the Arab made Pilgrimage (Hajj) before the Quran was revealed, one of them may remember saying, ‘My father used to feed (the poor), help others (end their disputes, with money), pay the Diyah (i.e. blood money,’ and so forth). The only Dhikr (remembrance) that they had was that they would remember the deeds of their fathers, things that helped themselves, and the society contain itself as a community and allowed for social advancement.
Built By Angels: African Jerusalem ‘Lalibela’
If faith is a mystery, there are few places in the Christian world where the mystery is deeper than in Lalibela. 800 years ago, an Ethiopian king ordered a new capital for Christians. At 8,000 feet, on the central plateau of Ethiopia stand 11 churches, each carved from a single, gigantic, block of stone. No bricks, no mortar, no concrete, no lumber, just rock sculpted into architecture. Not much is known about who built them, or why. But the faithful of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church say there’s no mystery really. The churches of Lalibela were built by angels.
Pillgrims on their way to Lalibela:
Cross Church viewed from above:
The northern highlands of Ethiopia rose 31 million years ago when fissures in the earth flooded the Horn of Africa with lava a mile deep. On hillsides you can still see columns of lava frozen in time. Iron made the basalt red and, gases trapped inside, made the stone light, as light and pliable as air. Christians laid their mark on Ethiopia before the year 400. They found the ancient stone welcomed the bite of a chisel. The churches were carved around the year 1200 by people called the Zagwe.

East Room: Reception for General Tom Thumb
On February 13, 1863, a honeymoon Party was held at the White House for Charles S. Stratton and Livinia Warren, who had been married shortly before in New York City. “He was twenty-four years old, thirty-two inches high, and weight twenty-one pounds. She was four years younger, of the same height, and eight pounds heavier. Only a few [days] before, the ‘distinguished Lilliputians’ had been married in New York City, and P.T. Barnum, super-showman of the day who had the ‘General’ under contract, had lost no time in publicizing the vent and arrange to have the couple presented to chiefs of republics and royal sovereigns,” wrote Stanley Kimmel.1 Warren and Stratton, who was known as General Tom Thumb, came to Washington where Stratton’s brother was stationed with the Union Army. They stayed at Willard’s Hotel before attending a well-publicized, well-attended reception at the White House in their honor.

Thank The LORD!
Thank You GOD, for saving me, keeping me away from the many, many Evils of this world.
Years ago when I first began striving for my college degree, new to Islam, eager to learn visiting Africa and the Mid East, I had the sincere desire in my quest to prove that Muslims had no involvement in the African slave trade. Yet the Truth dispelled my unlearned presumptions I held for my love of both Africans (Africa) and of Muslim’s who along with the rest of the world played major roles in slavery as participants in the enslavement of Africans to one degree or another. – Mr. Harun Jihad Bilal

US calls on Israel to investigate death of Palestinian boy
The U.S. State Department is calling on Israel to open a “thorough” investigation into the mysterious death of a 7-year-old Palestinian boy who collapsed and died on Thursday, shortly after Israeli soldiers came to his home in the occupied West Bank.
The boy’s father, Yasser Suleiman, said Rayan tried to run away when the soldiers said they wanted to arrest his brothers and was briefly chased by the soldiers. He said Rayan was vomiting blood in the car after collapsing and was pronounced dead at the hospital.
