Man, the trailer is off da hook! It's giving me some massive goosebumps.

Hamza Yusuf: "The secret of this world: If you remove love of dunya from your heart, the dunya is yours for the taking, you can have the dunya because it is in your hand and not in your heart."


Zaid Shakir: "Bringing the Muslims Together, and working on developing our strengths and realizing the potential of our community based on the common things that we share as Muslims, is an Idea whose time as truly come"

Another quote by Zaid Shakir:

" 'You know I know more than you and my way is better than your way', well unless we show people that Islam is bigger than my way and bigger than your way then we should all get on the highway and get out of here and lets some better people come and do the job Islam is calling us to do. And it's a blessing that the young people who've put this conference together are trying to bring speakers and scholars from all different orientations to emphasize to us all thats it's bigger than me and its bigger than you and it's not about me and its not about you, its about us and what we can do as Muslims to make this world a better place for EVERYONE!"
----
is this not the quote of a lifetime, for not only individuals who are attending this conference but for all Muslims around the world, to take home and practice this way of thinking towards their own communities for a better Ummah?


Man, I'm moving to California...next stop-----Zaytuna Institute! ...kidding...

Dr.Tarig Al Swaidan discovered some verses in the Holy Quran that mention one thing is equal to another, i.e. men are equal to women.

Although this makes sense grammatically, the astonishing fact is that the number of times the word man appears in the Quran is 24 and number of times the word woman appears is also 24, therefore not only is this phrase correct in the grammatical sense but also true mathematically, i.e. 24 = 24.

Upon further analysis of various verses, he discovered that this is consistent throughout the whole Quran, where it says one thing is like another. See below for astonishing result of the words mentioned number of times in Arabic Quran: Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran

Al-Dunya (This world) 115
Al-Akhira (The hereafter) 115

Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Al-Mala'ikah (Angels) 88
Al-Shayateen (Satan) 88

Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Al-Hayat (Life) 145
Al-Maout (Death) 145

Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Al-Rajul (Man) 24
Al-Mar'ha (Women) 24

Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Benefi't 50 . Corrupt 50
Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
People 50 .. Messengers 50
Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Eblees (king of devils) 11 . Seek refuge from Eblees 11
Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Museebah (calamity) 75 . Thanks 75
Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Spending (Sadaqah) 73 . Satisfaction 73
Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
People who are mislead 17 . Dead people 17
Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Muslimeen 41 . Jihad 41
Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Magic 60 . Fitnah (dissuasion, misleading) 60
Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Zakat (Taxes Muslims pay to the poor) 32 . Barakah (Increasing or blessings of wealth) 32
Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Mind 49 . Noor 49
Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Tongue 25 . Sermon 25
Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Speaking publicly 18 . Publicising 18
Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Hardship 114 .... Patience 114
Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Muhammad 4 . Sharee'ah (Muhammad's teachings) 4
Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Al-Shahr Month 12

Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Al-Yahom Day 365

Word/ Meaning Mentioned in the Quran
Al-bahar Sea 32
Al-bar Land 13

If we add up the total words of both "sea" and "land" we get 45. Now if we do a simple calculation:
32/45 X 100% = 71.11111111%
13/45 X 100% = 28.88888888%

Above is what we know today, the percentages of Water (Sea) and Land in the world. Yet another miracle in the Quran.

The Miracles of the Quran will never end. There will never be a time where mankind can fully take in the knowledge that is in this holy book. It is a miracle to all mankind, the word of God. There is no value that one can set to the words of the Creator. It is a treasure of which guides those that want to succeed in this life and the hereafter.

wats so shocking about it? he made soo many other great points.

He claimed that 'jins' cant take over your body because he stated from the Quran that we have control over evil. But most disagree cuz there have been cases of jins like that..

Also, his wife has a channel and appears on tv, so once someone said to Dr Tariq Suwaidan that what your wife does is haram cuz when she's on tv, other men look at her. He replied that what she does is not haram, but what the other men are doing is haram.

Asalaamu alikum dear M_89
He also said something about one of the scholars,being 'obessive compulsive'. I dont agree with his jinn theory, either respectively:) . He tried separating logic and faith. He calculated, that it is logically impossible for Imam Hanafi to perform 1000 rakats of Nawafil prayer, which I dont think is correct. Having said, I respect him as today's dedicated and leading scholars of our age, who wants to acheive Islamic Civilization, may Allah subhallah wah tallah make his dream come true. inshaAllah. may we aid in this beautiful revelotion. Indeed, Allah swt has grant him with management talents.MashaAllah, May Alllah swt be pleased with his hard-work. ameen.
ps. I was present at the RIZ conference, but I couldnt make it to the Retreat.

You won't get them on the internet. But eventually when the dvds are ready you can order them online from their website.
