Preamble to a Renewed Constitution of Canada, 1992

The documents below were passed on to me by Senator Nancy Greene Raine (http://www.parl.gc.ca/SenatorsBio/senator_biography.aspx?senator_id=2812&language=E), of the Canadian Parliament, after a meeting I had with her in Riverside Park, Kamloops, at a memorial put together for  fallen soldiers Nathan Cirillo and Patrice Vincent. The preamble was recited by the Senator  herself at the Canadian Parliament a few days ago, after the tragic Ottawa Shootings.  Kindly download and share.  #CanadaStrong

Reference for Alcohol in Islam

Answered by Imam Mazhar Mahmood

Found on mathabah.org

Question:

I cannot find passages that forbid alcohol or passages that shun it’s use. On the contrary, I find references that Mohammad drank alcohol. What will you say to that?

Answer:

Thank you for your query.

The prohibition of alcohol is found not only in verses of the Qur’ān and sayings of Allāh’s Messenger (peace and blessings upon him), but books which were revealed prior to the Qur’ān have also emphatically deemed alcohol as impermissible for consumption.

Heights of Success

By Imām Al Shāfi’īe (may Allāh have mercy on him)

Translated by Imam Mazhar Mahmood

بقدرِ الكدِّ تكتسبُ المعالي

Heights of success are attained, in accordance to one’s efforts

ومن طلب العلا سهر الليالي

ومن رام العلا من غير كد

أضاع العمر في طلب المحال

تروم العز ثم تنام ليلا
You seek honour yet sleep all night

يغوص البحر من طلب اللآلي
One who desires pearls must dive in the depth of oceans

Depression, Friends and School

Answered by Shaykh Mazhar Mahmood

Question:

I really don’t know what to do. I am depressed and I really need help. I feel like I have drifted apart from my friends. I feel useless, unwanted, and alone. I want my friends to be good Muslims but no one at my school is like that, though I go to an Islamic school. All my friends are obsessed with unlawful things, like music, boys etc. I want to have better company but I cannot find anyone like that. I am thinking of switching schools and starting fresh. My two friends (who are very Islamic and like me) go to a public school and I feel like I should go there. I feel so lonely and I cannot find anyone to help me!
