  • Sri Lanka Muslim Council objects to Justice Minister's statement on Muslim community
    Sat, Nov 19, 2016, 11:12 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka. Nov 19, Colombo: The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka (MCSL) has strongly objected to the statement made by the Minister of Justice Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe in Parliament regarding the Muslim community. Justice Minister told parliament Friday that information has been uncovered on 32 well-educated Sri Lankan Muslims of 4 families joining the Islamic State in Syria. Issuing a statement today, MCSL president N M Ameen said Minister's statement implies that 32 Muslims have joined the ISIS recently. "We strongly object to this misplaced statement. The facts given by the Honorable Minister were reported in the media more than one year ago when a Sri Lankan combatant died fighting with ISIS," Ameen said. "There have been no new reports of any others involved since this was reported...

  • Rajitha contradicts Wijeyadasa
    While rejecting Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakse's recent statement in Parliament that some 32 Sri Lankan youths had joined the IS, Cabinet spokesman Minister Rajitha Senaratne today said that the statement was completely incorrect and misleading. Addressing the weekly cabinet press briefing in Parliament, Minister Senaratne said according to the armed forces intelligence reports, only four Muslim youths had joined the IS but they have joined the militant group from abroad. “I have reliable intelligence reports that the information given to Minister Rajapakse was not correct. But unfortunately, the statement made by Minister Rajapakse in Parliament recently has created a confusion and anxiety among the Muslim community in Sri Lanka. Someone has given him misleading information. Not a single Muslim youth joined IS directly from Sri Lanka,”...

  • An Open Letter to the Minister of Justice Hon. Wijedasa Rajapakshe
    19 Nov 2016 Hon. Wijedasa Rajapakse Minister of Justice Colombo An Open Letter to the Minister of Justice Hon. Wijedasa Rajapakshe Minister Rajapakse, The Muslim community takes serious exception to the censorious remarks made by you in Parliament on 17th Nov 2016.  You juxtaposed selected irrelevant issues to implicate and malign several respected Muslim organisations and the Muslim community. Your fearmongering remarks are increasing the degree of tension among all communities thereby jeopardising nascent peace emerging in the country.  The impact of your statement is not confined to the Muslims alone as it affects the whole country at a time when the President and the Prime Minister are forewarning the nation that anti-government saboteurs are scheming to bring Buddhist-Muslim clash as a strategy to bring down the government....

  • The Eternal Delight of Repentance!
    By Sister Jamine Khan When Allah created us, Allah pointed out the path of righteousness, and also the path which will lead to Allah’s displeasure. In addition, Allah gave us free will, in other words, we have a choice as to which path to follow. When we choose the path of sin we are turning away from our Creator. We are all born in a state of purity, with a natural predisposition to obey Allah. We enter the world in a state of submission to the divine known as the Fitrah. To return to our natural state we should turn away from doing what is wrong, and repent. With true repentance we dedicate ourselves to correcting our behaviour, it enables us to turn away from sin and return to the path of Allah. Allah’s infinite mercy has given this as a means by which we can strive for purification and thus return to our original sinless state of...

      “Food for the Soul” SUBJECT: KINDNESS Allah, The Most Exalted, says: “And verily, whosoever shows patience and forgives that would truly be from the things recommended by Allah” (Qur'an 42:43) The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is reported to have said: "Allah is not kind to him who is not kind to people” (Hadith Bukhari & Muslim) Note: Kindness is indeed a great virtue and a distinctive feature of good character. It is trait that every noble soul possesses. No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted or goes unnoticed in the sight of Allah Ta’ala. Kindness is a gift that everyone can afford to give and it has a ripple effect. It is the language which deaf can hear and blind can see. Be kind and kindness will be shown to you!

  • Anytime Resolutions…5 Easy Tips!
    Anytime Resolutions…5 Easy Tips! By Abu Muhammad Yusuf The Islamic New has recently begun and people generally ponder about on how to approach this New Islamic Year and their work, health and relationships etc. In reality we don’t need a New Year or special occasion to make a resolution for doing or achieving good. It can be done instantaneously! Common resolutions include cutting down on chocolate/weight, quit smoking, getting in shape, etc. A lot involves benefits to the health and/or improving lifestyle. Others include giving more to charity, being closer to family which boosts a personal level of satisfaction etc. But this we as Muslims should be doing regardless.

    What about us? Have we set a goal or targets for ourselves? If so, was it because it was a New Year? Did you have to wait for the New Year to set it?...

The first month Muharram, is a month of great reward and virtue. Muharram itself means `sacred' and is from those months which have been mentioned as sacred in the Holy Qur’an. Almighty Allah states in the Holy Qur’an: "Four of them ( Zil-Qadah, Zil-Hijjah, Muharram and Rajab) are sacred."(Qur’an Surah At-Tawbah:36) From out of the four sacred months, Muharram has been blessed with certain specific virtues: The Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu-Alayhi-Wasallam) said: "The best of fasts besides the month of Ramadhan is the fasting of Allah's month of Muharram."(Hadith-Muslim) "The one that keeps a fast in the month of Muharram will receive the reward of thirty fasts for each fast (in this sacred month)."(Hadith:Tabraani) Although...
