That is Islam, that’s why I’m Muslim… it’s not for all this madness out there, it’s because of people like that. Because that’s the embodiment of the Prophet’s Sunnah.

Allah is constantly involved in the act of Creation, and in the act of altering the circumstances of created things. He brings things into existence from nonexistence. He enriches the poor.

Repentance wipes out every sin, without exception.
