Muhammad (pbuh) had no bread nor meat to offer, no sugar-plums of any kind, in this world or the next! The only thing he could offer his bedraggled, poor shepherd people was trial and tribulations and the strait-jacketing of their lives here on earth and the good pleasures of God in the Hereafter. The life of the Prophet was an open book before them. He had shown them as to what he was; the nobility of his character, his integrity of purpose, his earnestness and fiery enthusiasm for the truth he had come to preach revealed the hero; and they followed him.

Shaikh Uthman Barry has passed away on Sep 6, 2010 at 11:00 a.m India time

Shaikh Uthman BarryInnalillahi wa inna ilayhi raaji’oon

Shaikh Uthman Barry passed away at 11:00 am India time. We were informed by one of the group members of the eSisters Forum through the following email (this email was forwarded to me by my mother at local fajr time in Dubai today):

Innalillahi wa inna ilayhi raaji’oon,

AssalamualaykumwarahmatAllahi wabarakatuhu,

With a very heavy heart I’m letting you know that our close friend, teacher, father-figure and Shaykh, Uthman Barry has passed away today morning around 11:00 am India time.

It is on the best of the months and inshaAllah the best ofthe days that he has left us, and I ask you to pray for hisforgiveness and for his entering into Jannah without anyreckoning.

The family plans to have his Janaza in Delhi itself, insha-Allah by <em>dhuhr </em>tomorrow if all the paperwork is finished.

I request you to make dua.

Ma’ssalaamah.

AbuMustafa Arshad Khan.

(The same message is posted here: http://esisters.wordpress.com/2010/09/07/brother-and-shaykh-uthmann-barry-passed-away/)

I have also called and asked the KALEMAH institute in Dubai, UAE, who have confirmed this news.

May Allah bless his choicest blessings on Shaikh Uthman Barry and accept his dawah and his struggle to be a fountain of light for many of us Muslims in the United Arab Emirates. Ameen

I always found him a very soft spoken aalim (scholar) with a humble and nurturing approach to Islamic teaching. May Allah accept from him and grant him a great darajah (position).

We pray for all Muslims who have passed away this month and May Allah Subhana Wa Taala Forgive their sins and admit them into His Paradise.

Ameen.

Is the Holy Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, indeed foretold in the Bible? This question is one of great importance considering the striking evidence that research of the biblical texts has revealed and many a Muslim scholars have pointed out a clear prophecy from the lips of Jesus Christ, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, that refers to the forthcoming Prophet, ‘the Spirit of truth’ who shall ‘guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.’ A wonderful lecture to watch and improve our knowledge, indeed!

The Quran and the Computer by Sheikh Ahmed DeedatAn entertaining lecture that keeps these young computer college students engaged and laughing at almost everything Mr. Deedat has to say! The topic in question a reflection of how the Quran was revealed to us and what day-to-day solutions has it got to offer to mankind. If the computer can in the mid seventies impress a man of the stature of Mr. Deedat and help him relate to the Quran and its revelation to Prophet Muhammad, the computational miracles we see today must helps us come closer to the message of God even further.

Sequel to Chirst in Islam by Sheikh Ahmed DeedatSequel to Sheikh Ahmed Deedat’s lecture Christ in Islam that is available for you to watch as well, this is a one hour TV debate held to discuss some of the objections to Mr. Ahmed Deedat’s statements made during that Lecture.

In all good faith Sheikh Deedat does his best to clarify the questions and arguments raised by two born again Christians, Mrs. Irene Meilhon, a housewife and a very staunch Christian, and Mr. Jonathan Leach, a church Minister, and takes it a step further by answering all their questions with vivid examples from both Christian and Muslim scriptures.

Although intense in content this debate is examplary in the conduct of all participants and their patience in listening to the view points of one another and debating the topic in a healthy yet charged environment.

Christ in Islam by Sheikh Ahmed DeedatThe only religion after Christianity that testifies that Christ is the Messiah, the appointed one, Saviour of the Jews at the time, who gave life to the dead, healed those born blind and the lepers by God’s permission, a man of miracles established by God on Earth, of miracle birth, born without any male intervention, is Islam. This talk given by Sheikh Ahmed Deedat helps clarify the Islamic standpoint of the status of Jesus in Islam and shares the truth of Jesus, the son of Mary.

Considering Christian viewpoint on a topic of this nature it is a challenge for Christian viewers to watch a three hour debate on the subject of ‘Is the Bible the True Word of God?’ and to put to test the very book that they believe in and give it a litmus test of science, logic and reason.

Given that the topic is controversial and requires patience it should be born in mind that the debaters Pastor Stanley Sjöberg and Sheikh Ahmad Deedat take rounds pounding one another with adequate points in trying to challenge the opponent with their analysis and scripture. In a crowded auditorium, full of patient and impatient followers of Christianity and Islam this is one debate that brings out a lot of emotions as one watches it.

One of the most interesting moments of this debate is when one of the Muslim questioners asks Pastor Stanley Sjöberg to consume poison to prove a biblical verse that should render him immune to the poison and hands a bottle full of ‘liquid’ to him to test his belief in Christian scripture. Like any wise man yet quite cheekily Pastor Stanley avoids the challenge and loses his temper. This is further revealed in his next debate with Sheikh Ahmad Deedat and says that he was angered by this action and accuses Sheikh Deedat of a few saucy allegations (watch ‘Is Jesus God?’ Stanley Sjöberg, Sheikh Ahmed Deedat, Debate, Video for another fiery battle of wits).

Our intention is to publish material that helps people discover true faith and though we take such encounters as amusing moments in this history of Christian-Muslim exchange there is a greater lesson to be learnt and a greater objective of trying to understand the true meaning of the scriptures of God Almighty, the last one, the last testament being the Holy Quran.

Is Terrorism a Muslim Monopoly? By Dr. Zakir Naik

Question & Answers at: 110:30 | Production & Editing: Yasser Masood

If anything today scares the ‘Westerner’ it’s the word ‘terrorism’ attached to ‘islam’ or ‘muslims’ and he doesn’t feel it one bit that all around us, the world is full of ‘terrorism’ by the ‘non-muslim’, one that is not labeled as such, one that is not brought to the forefront of newspapers and television channels and one that is not talked about on talk shows. Certainly this is an unjust campaign on part of certain elements of the media to malign Islam and Muslims by associating them to practices that are against the true spirit of their religion.

In this hard hitting and thought provoking lecture, Dr. Zakir Naik presents sound analysis and logically queries the subject of ‘Is TERRORISM a Muslim Monopoly?’ to bring about an understanding amongst the learned to view Islam in its true light and avoid the notion that whatever today’s media brings to us, we must accept and believe without sound proof.

Prejudice dies hard so it may not be easy for some of our viewers to accept every fact that Dr. Zakir brings forward, however we do urge you to see the entire program and enjoy it to the fullest! Do note that as always all programs are followed by a question answer session so please don’t miss all the interesting questions posed to Dr. Zakir Naik at the end of his lecture.

Sheikh Ahmed Deedat’s first trip to Scandinavia involved two fiery, intense and unnerving debates with Stanley Sjöberg, one of which was held on the subject of ‘Is Jesus God?’.

If you watch this debate you will notice both speakers on fire and blazing with energy to refute one another in stubborn delight yet with strong criticism of the other’s views. It is up to the viewer to make their judgement however the subject demands attention and justice can only be done if a sincere effort is made to understand the view point of one another. We hope this helps in bringing out the best opinion in one’s mind and aids the viewer to the truth.

This debate brings out the best in both orators who try to defend their points of view on the subject and take criticism from one another, refuting each other’s analysis profusely.

We bring you ‘Was Christ Crucified?’ a scintillating debate held on July 17th 1994 at Mapel Leaf Gardens in Toronto, Canada between Bishop General Wesley H. Wakefield, Bishop General of the Bible Holiness Movement of Vancouver and Sheikh Ahmed Deedat, South African Muslim Scholar of the Christian Bible.

This is also the last major debate that Sheikh Ahmed Deedat participated in prior to his stroke. A job well done, it remains to be decided by the viewer whether Christ was really crucified at the cross!

The question ‘Is Jesus God?’ comes up again and this time in Denmark and rightly so, given the explosive growth of Islam in this country and it’s endeavor towards freedom of speech in whatever manner that may be deemed fit to the speech-maker.

Pastor Erik Bock and Sheikh Ahmed Deedat debate the question in a congeal environment that brings forward some truths and admissions about the true nature and complexity of the long standing subject of Jesus’s divinity. Held in Denmark on November 2nd in 1991 this is a debate worth watching and sharing with relatives.
