The following is from a mailing list I belong to. According to the Malaysian takwim (Islamic calendar), 1st Rajab 1434 this year falls on Saturday 11th May 2013, inshaAllah.
With the blessed month of Rajab soon upon us, please benefit from the advice delivered by Sayyidī al-Habīb `Umar bin Hafīz (may Allāh preserve him and benefit us by him) on the blessings of Rajab and the realities of repentance.

Technology is freely available to identify the “prominent politician” on that sex tape, yet this information is not released. If the man is NOT Anwar, we need to know NOW. If it IS Anwar, we also need to know. This issue must be buried as it has been the cause of tremendous derision of Malaysia and her “jungle politics”, in many countries of the world. Continue reading
This is from a mailing list I belong to:
As was the custom with the tribes of Arabia prior to Islam, people’s allegiances were to tribes under whose protection one was, which meant other tribes, particularly less influential ones, would avoid entering into a feud with anyone from a more noble tribe. The Prophet (s) belonged to the most noble of them all, the tribe of Quraysh, and within that tribe, the noble tribe of Bani Hashim.
