Islam is the Religion of Moderation

By Shaykh Abdur Rahman As-Sudays

All praise is due to Allaah, Lord of all the worlds. May peace and blessings be upon the Messenger, his household and companions.

Brethren in faith! It has been an undisputable fact that in the opinion of the wise men that the more a nation adhere to its values, the more it attains glory. It is also a fact that all colours of corruption that is widespread in today's world and which threaten people's security, peace and stability are only the result of men's negligence of their cultural and human values. read more

It was a terrible night, blowing cold and snow in a most frightful manner. The streets were deserted and the local baker was just about to close up shop when a little, old man slipped through the door. He carried an umbrella, blown inside out, and was bundled in two sweaters and a thick coat. But even so he still looked wet, freezing, and bedraggled.

As he unwound his scarf he said to the baker, "May I have two poppy seed bagels to go, please?"

The baker said in astonishment, "Two bagels? Nothing more?"

"That's right," answered the little man. "One for me and one for Sherry."

"And who is Sherry, your wife?" asked the baker.

"What did you think," snapped the little man, "that my mother would send me out on a night like this?"
