The organizers decided to end the conference with readings from the scriptures of major religions, done by followers of other religions. As it happened, an Arab Christian read a passage from the Qur’aan. He was a good reciter. Every one seemed to be moved by his heart-rending reading, including the reciter himself....

  • THE DESIGN OF THE WOODPECKER
    As we all know, woodpeckers build their nests by boring holes in tree trunks with their beaks. This may sound familiar to most people. But the point many people fail to examine is why woodpeckers suffer no brain haemorrhage when they beat a tattoo so vigorously with their heads. What the woodpecker does is in a way similar to a human being driving a nail into the wall with his head. If a man ventured to do something like that, he would probably undergo a brain shock followed by a brain haemorrhage. However, a woodpecker can peck a hard tree trunk 38-43 times in just two or three seconds and nothing happens to it.(1)   Nothing happens because the head structure of woodpeckers is ideally created for such a task. The skull of the woodpecker has a remarkable suspension system that absorbs the force of the blows. Its forehead and some skull...

  • Daily Anti-Depressant
    Many people are under the misconception that an increase in wealth will lead to an increase in happiness. However, this could not be further from the truth, as depression affects people across all income-brackets and from all walks of life. The severity of depression can perhaps be gauged by the fact that according to statistics, in South Africa alone, there are approximately twenty-three known suicides a day! Islam has given us a simple, free prescription that has no unwanted side effects and is incomparable in combating depression. In this regard, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) taught us that we should always look at those who are less fortunate than ourselves (Saheeh Muslim #7428). In doing so, we will realize how many bounties we enjoy for which we should be thankful and how fortunate we really are. Hence, we...

  • Why we need good friends..
    A well know Arabic saying advises, “Don’t talk about a person. Ask about his companions.” This simply means that if you want to enquire about a person — about his character, what are his habits, is he responsible, etc., then do not enquire specifically about him. Instead enquire about the company he keeps. If he keeps good company, insha-Allah he will be likewise a good and upright person. On the contrary if he remains in the company of people accustomed to sin and vice or people of low character and morals, he will generally be judged accordingly. Musk Seller Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) has emphasized upon us to always maintain good company. He is reported to have said: “A person follows the way of his friend, therefore beware of who you befriend!” (Sunan Abi Dawood #4833) In another hadeeth a good friend...

Dear Sir,

We, the Muslim Council of Sri Lanka (MCSL) wish to bring to your kind attention the Muslim community’s deep disappointment and concern at media reports of your speech at the Defense seminar on September 3rd 2013.

As you are well aware, the Muslim community has without any hesitation stood by the Sri Lankan State throughout the 30 year conflict and has never resorted to any form of armed resistance.

The extremist elements that have been propagating hatred against the minority communities have taken your statement as an endorsement of the State’s approval of their stand on extremism amongst the Muslim community....

MCSL Letter to the Secretary of Defense

06th September 2013

PRESS RELEASE

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka vehemently refutes the blatant lies and canard spread against the Muslim Community by the Bodu Bala Sena at their press conference held on the 3rd September 2013.

Alcohol, narcotics or any form of intoxicants are totally prohibited in Islam and Muslims cannot engage in any activity related to them. Any Muslim involved in these activities cannot be considered to be following the teachings of Islam. We urge the enforcement authorities to take the strictest possible recourse and punish with the full force of the law any persons involved in destroying the social fabric of society by indulging in trafficking, distributing or trading in any form of narcotics irrespective of their religious belief.

The recent detection of a large haul of Heroin at the Colombo Port has been confirmed by the relevant authorities to be a consignment imported by International drug traffickers and Sri Lanka has been used only as a transit point. Leveling charges against the Muslim community of being part of this criminal act tantamount to inciting hate which can lead to violence against the Muslim community.

Further, a number of other allegations in this press conference including forced contraception of Sinhala women, aborting unborn children, killing children etc. are serious criminal charges, which carry severe penalties. We urge the relevant authorities to conduct an impartial inquiry immediately on these allegations. Meanwhile, we also urge the government and law enforcement authorities to take action against the Bodu Bala Sena for this hate mongering.......

ACJU Condemns the attacks on Buddhist Monks

All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama, the council of Muslim theologians in Sri Lanka vehemently condemns the inhuman act of attacking the innocent Buddhist Monks in Tamil Nadu recently. They visit India mostly on pilgrimage or for further studies. It is the responsibility of the Indian government to give due protection to the religious dignitaries, irrespective of any religion, visiting India.

All religions encourage respecting other religions, the holy places of other religions, the people of other religions, and especially the religious dignitaries of other religions. Islam insists that everyone must honor the lives, the properties and the feelings of his fellow beings.

ACJU requests the Indian government to bring the offenders for prosecution as fast as possible to erase the damage caused.
