Some Personal Practical steps to freedom (of the mind, body and soul) - feel free to add your own or delete, these practice help me in my life

1. Free your mind through reading "Iqra" (Allah elevated Adam over Shaitan through teaching of the names - i.e. learning) - history reveals the truth

2. Free your body through exercising fasting to restrain hidden and apparent bodily desires

3. Free your soul by submitting completely to Allah (salat, du'a, nafl, etc.)

An Arab Prophet and Slave of Allah (PBUH) predicted the eradiction of Shirk on earth with the return of true monotheism as the form of governance and social life, whereby justice would flourish and wealth would bring peace not corruption.

1. Did he lie?

2. How could Mecca be similar to the globalized world we live in today?

3. Could shirk be dominant throughout today's world? Are our eyes wide shut?

4. If so, how did the Prophet (PBUH) and his companions practically address institutionalized shirk as the law of the day (both during the first 13 and last 10 years)?

5. Was there already a Muslim Jammah in place?

6. Would he have given dawah to the non-muslim Jammah, by-passing his muslim brethen (though they were guilty of similar vices)?

The future is bright for Islam, make no mistake.......but it is conditional, are we to be included?

I pray that Allah makes among the seventy thousand of Muhammad's (PBUH) ummah who enter Al-Jannah without being questioned. I pray that Allah makes us among the beloved of the Prophet (PBUH) who believed in him without seeing him. Ameen.
