Modern civilization seduces, beguiles and makes its devotees addictive to its bogus promises and splendor. On the whole, it is an extremely destructive force. It “kills” and shuts man forever inside the “cave” of his skeptical mind and corrupted soul (nafs or self). Islam’s aim is to rescue man from such a distressing agony.
The chief aim of the chapter is to reveal the truth, however spectacular or enigmatic it seemed to the people, and to give warning to the disbelievers and polytheists of a severe punishment from Allah, and also to give glad tidings to the believers, who do righteous deeds...

Alhamdulillah it was a successful conference with 90 revert attendees. Ma sha’ Allah there was positive feedback from the participants.
Both Christians and Muslims admire Saladin. Saladin's traits and virtues were purely a reflection of the teachings of his faith. He defeated the Crusaders, known to Muslims as the Franks, and recaptured Jerusalem in 1187. The experience of the Crusaders with the Muslims demonstrates that Muslims and Christians are in no civilization clash, but rather in civilization bondage.
