Well right now we are working to establish our new name.  We want the people to think of Sunnahfollowers.net  now intead of what they were programmed to think before.  We are in the process of re-designing the entry page to give it a new look to match our new name.

If you have suggestions, feel free to comment here to us!

Tell us a little about yourself – How did you come upon islam?

Innal Hamduliallah…Unlike many may think, I am not a convert to islam. I have been Muslim all my life. My mother is a very strong Muslim woman of creole ethnicity so that means she has the strength of many in her blood;  Mostly of Celtic Origins (French Viking and Scottish) and African (Southern Bantu and Camaroon) are known to be people of strength, and she has all of those bloods within her. So thus embracing Islam was a natural for her – and she raised all of her children to know that they were created for paradise and there is nothing that they can not do or be in this world.

My father died when I was a young child so I did not get to know much about him. He was Arabic – Egyptian… but the credit of being Muslim and raised as such belongs to my mother.

I also had a great step-father who contributed in instilling my islamic morales. My Allah bless both he and my mother with paradise…ameen

What and when did you develop an interest in the dawah?

Subhanallah.  When I was six years old I knew how to read and my mother immediately made me attend classes held at the masjid to learn what being a Muslim was all about.  My first teacher was Imam Mutawwaf Abdus Shaheed and he focussed on teaching the sunnah via Hadith to us.  So thus I began to memorize the hadiths of Bukhari and Muslim beginning at age six along with their meanings. 

By the time I was twelve I was giving presentations on the Rulings of Marriage, Menses and the likes at mini conferences held at our masjid…remember too this was back in the late 70’s when Islam was not a well known thing here in America.  I continued to study Islam with concentration upon Hadith all my life (now included) and when I met up with my present teacher, Shaykh Mustapha Morsy – I then was given permission by him to teach to others.  And I have been on the internet teaching for the past 5 years.

I have sacrificed a lot for this dawah but alhumduliallah it will be worth it.

Where did the Video Lecture idea come from?

MashaAllah.   Wallah the idea came from Allah.  It was totally inspired by him.  When the fitnah emerged, I pondered how to address it and then the idea came to me, to not address it at all…at least not in the traditional way.  Instead the idea was that my work speaks for itself, so just put my work out there for the world to hear and thus I would be addressing and diffusing the allegations made against me.  I followed that idea and so thus…Here we are!

So what was that fitnah all about?

Well in a nutshell…I myself was not even aware of that fitnah.  I was never approached by the person.  To be honest, I had not spoken to that person since arlington texas…Wallah it had been 4 months since I had spoken on the phone with that person, so I was as shocked as you all were.  To this day the person never confronted me. I learned about it from you.  Were the allegations true…My Video Lectures reveal the answer to that…

Many of you have asked what would cause a man to issue charges that if true could actually result in the death of a woman whom he is ordered by Allah to protect and care for…The answer is simple… jealousy, envy and hasad.  These are evil characteristics that shaytaan spurs into the hearts of man…particularly a husband and wife because he loves to destroy marriages more than anything.  And if that husband and wife are both people of righteousness then he will work even harder with the help of his army of devils from mankind and Jinn.

This was the case here. 

So how are things now??

Mashallah everything is fine.  I got thru it and so did the website.  Alhumduliallah the website has grown even more and Allah has sent us better!  So thru every hardship comes relief and elevation!
