So sit back, relax and enjoy and be sure to leave us your comments!
This is my personal blog. Please do not join here to challenge or argue with me. To do so will only result in my banning you from here. If you have comments that are challenging that you would like to share – be woman enough to join me LIVE on my website and present your comment. I say woman enough because most negative comments come from women who suffer from jealousy and envy so shaytaan moves them to leave smart aleck comments. These women need to be reminded that this is one of the reasons why hell will be filled with women.
If you are bold enough to come to me live, I warn you to come with daleel from Quran or sunnah to support what you have to say – not some fatwa – because I am known for making people wear egg on their face.
Also for those ignorant to ask “What scholar do I follow” the answer is the same scholar the companions followed, and the 4 imams, and Ibn Taymia, and Ibn Qayyim, and Abdul Wahhab, and Sheikh Albani, and Ibn Uthaymeen and Sheikh Bin Baaz – and his name is “Muhammad Ibn Abdullah. If that is not good enough for you then you need to ask yourself – ARE YOU A MUSLIM!
For those who would like to know a little more about me, this is all you need to know:
Laila Nasheeba is the founder and Managing Director of AlQuran Wa Sunnah Islamic Site of Learning – an online Islamic Institute- wherein she devotes her time to teaching and calling the Muslims back to the Quran and Authentic Sunnah.
Laila Nasheeba is a graduate of Cleveland State University where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Communications and Ancient Civilizations. She is also a certified Para-Legal. She has studied Islam with concentration in Hadiths since the age of six from various others beginning with Imam Mutawwaf Abdus Shaheed to her present teacher, Shaykh Mustapha Morsy Abu AtTayyib – who in turn gave her permission to teach from various books of Aqeedah and Hadiths, and due to her understanding of the Sunnah, permission to answer Questions about Islam
Innal Humdulaillah was salah wa salama lah wa rasululah… Ramadan is the best month of the year, especially for the Daiyee such as myself. Why? because this is our chance to reach out to those Muslims who we do not see much and try to bring them into the circle of believers.. even here on the net. This ramadan has been very fruitful for me. So many new Muslims joining the website eager to learn their religion. Eager to learn the truth in accordance to the Quran and the Authentic Sunnah. With the help of Allah I have captured their hearts and increased their faith..but the question is can this be maintained even after ramadan?
Subhanallah the ummah is so fragile. Muslim women from all over the world searching for paradise, and searching for a man to lead them there. So many young vulnerable Muslim converts, naive to the fact that cyberspace is filled with Muslim men who hide behind islam and a computer, and lay in wait to prey upon new converts! The sad reality is that most of these vultures are of arabic descent and use that as a means of luring the women in.
“Islam was revealed to the arab and I am arab and I speak the language of the Quran,” they say. “Come my sister and I will teach you islam.”
These fragile women with hearts longing for paradise, eagerly accept the invitation, and from there paradise becomes a distant dream as the men fill them with promises of love, romance and worldly passions. So many of these women end up used, hurt and duped by these vultures, many to the point of apostation. I thank Allah that he has sent some of these such women to my website for me to look over and steer right… and I have a few words for the vultures of cyberspace:
“FEAR ALLAH DUDE AND WATCH YOUR BACK BECAUSE THERE IS A FEMALE DAIYEE IN TOWN AND HER NAME IS LAILA NASHEEBA. MESS WITH MY NEWBIE MUSLIMAH’S.. DARE TO TAKE AWAY THEIR DREAMS OF PARADISE.. AND I GIVE YOU MY WORD YOU WILL ANSWER TO ALLAH!”
Something to think about as we surf the net…
Subhanallah. I just arrived back from attending a conferece in Houston Texas where I spoke about Passionate Love. The community I visited is a Nigerian community – Masjidul Muslimeen. I must say they are the nicest Muslims I have met in a very long time. They were very welcoming and gracious and seemed to really enjoy my lecture. There was one thing though that amazed me….
There was one sister there at the conference whom I noticed that whenever I spoke she felt the need to take over and add to it. After I had given my lecture she went so far as to take over my Q&A session and answer the questions that were really posed to me. Mind you she did not do this to the other guest speakers – just me. I brushed it off and figured oh well, I answer questions all day long every day so I needed the break. But others did not like it at all.
As I was leaving for the night a few sisters approached me and apologized for the woman’s behavior and one of them asked me her question again – so as to hear MY answer. After I answered her she hugged me, smiled and cried. “I love you Laila Nasheeba,” she said. “You have changed my life so much in so many ways and you do not even know it.”
She went on to tell me how she listens to my lectures on the internet daily. I hugged her back and told her I loved her too and encouraged her to join our website so as she can stay in touch with me. As I then turned to leave, one of my students approached me and introduced me to one of her friends.
“Teacher, this is my friend,” she said. “She really enjoyed your lecture and was shocked that she did because she thought you were a “revert” ”
I was taken aback. “What made her think I was a “convert” ?” I asked, although even if I had been what was wrong with that?
Come to find out, just because I speak like a strong african American – this made her and others too think I am a convert – and because of that they felt I would not have much to tell them about islam. I then began to piece together – this must have been the other woman’s problem too. The reason she felt the need to answer my questions and all is because she too most likely figured me to be a “convert”.
Subhanallah. I explained to my student that some of the most great Islamic speakers today are converts – Khalid Yasin, Seraj Wahhaj, Abdul Hakim Quick – are all CONVERTS and african American. I am neither, but even if I were, what is it that makes others think that I would not have anything to share or say about islam?
Whatever the reason, people with this ideology are just stopping themselves from acheiving knowledge that could be of so much benefit to them. My student agreed.
I chalk this up as another reason as to why so many Muslims today are lost, and pray that Allah will open such Muslims hearts to the truth – as told by whomever regardless of race, linguistics or conversion.
This is a question that many muslim’s have asked. Well here is the answer is given by the scholars of my website – Sunnahfollowers.net . Be sure to leave a comment:)
I received news of the death of a great man – Dr Saleh as Saleh. I never met him nor know how he looked. But I do know that he was a good man placed here on earth to convey the message of Allah to others. A scholarly man placed here on earth for a short time to convey the sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad(sa). A loved man who will be missed by many.
The Prophet(sa) once said that a person’s outcome can be determined by the amount of people who praise him when he leaves this earth. Well many now praise Dr saleh As Saleh. Many now have nothing but good to say of Dr saleh As Saleh.
Peace be Upon you, my beloved brother in islam. May your body sleep as your soul takes the form of a green bird in paradise. May Allah forgive all your sins and place you near the prophet whose sunnah you died trying to preserve…ameen ameen ameen!
Innal Hamduliallah…It seems anytime a person tries to do something good, there will appear his enemies from amongst the allies of Shaytaan who will in turn try to tear what the person is doing down…and thus, here we go again!
What is the “Big Head” syndrome? This is when a person does something and then becomes so proud and arrogant about what he has done that he begins to think that there is none better than he. He begins to view himself as being above everyone else. This is a horrible affliction for a person to suffer from because first of all, whatever the good deed was that was done, the reward has been lost because as our Prophet(sa) has said,
“Riya or the showing off of deeds destroys the the deed.”
Also anyone who suffers from this type of pride will be denied entrance into paradise.
So to accuse a person of suffering with this affliction is something serious indeed. So now lets get to the heart of the matter. I have received emails from a couple of people asking me why did I make this blog. They then asked did I make it because I am suffering from the “Big Head symdrome” since my lectures are now on video for the world to see.
At first I became angry from the emails…this is why I waited till now to comment on them. I wanted to be sure all the anger had dissappeared and I comment rationally and Islamically. Being so, my response is as follows:
Alhumduliallah I was raised by a God-Fearing gracious woman who instilled self respect, self esteem and self love into me. She also instilled Love for Allah and his Prophet and the companions in me as well. So thus, I do not suffer with symdromes such as “The Big Head”.
You all know of me only here in cyberspace, but in real life there is more about me than meets the key board. Since my mother instilled the above things into me as a child, I have had success in every endeavor I have attempted in my life. Video’s in which you can not even see me, do not even count.! If I wanted to have a big head I would have had one over my accomplishments in the real world..not video’s in which you can not even see me.
Let me explain why I put those video’s here. First of all, I am a professional teacher..not some internet wanna be. In the real world, after teaching a course the teacher hands out a questionaire for the students to complete asking what have you learned, what improvements are needed to make it easier for others and the likes. So just as we do that, in the real world so that we can improve the course so the students can better understand the material, I decided to do the same here too. So that is the reason behind posting the video’s here. To allow you as a student to give me feedback so as I can make the material easier the next time around. Please note that all the classes I teach are repeated over and over again each year. As I stated, I am a professional teacher and our website is a REAL online school. So that is the reason for the video’s!
Subhanallah… Understand that bad thoughts come from Shaytaan. Its his way of keeping you from learning and also his way of disuniting us. When you get bad thoughts about a person, especially one who has devoted their time to teaching you your religion..try saying “aoothu billah” and push those thoughts away. Then make duaa for that person. I guarantee if you try doing that you will be a much happier person!
Any questions or comments about this… please do share!
