Virgin Islands REQUEST
Assalaamu Alaikum, Dear Shaikh Mohamed, My name is Bro. Karim and am writing you from my home in the US Virgin Islands. I think I got a brochure at the Mosque here a few months ago as it was a Friday and Jummua where many other men had came. I am a student following the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) and I am still interested in learning more of the Arabic language. So, I would like a copy of the Traveling Dua. I had found some beginning books 1-6 grade level to borrow as I am interested in learning to count numbers and more words. I will accept $10, $20 credit but no more for now. I hope to hear from you. Thanks, K. Nelthrepp, St. Thomas, Virgin Islands

From : Trinity Lutheran Church Dear Shaikh Shafayat Mohamed,
Thank you for coming and sharing on Islam with our adult Sunday School class. It was indeed enlightening and refreshing to hear your perspective - a peaceful voice that can help us reflect on our own perspectives. We must keep in mind that we are indeed brothers and sisters of the same Father. Previously, as part of a multifaith religious coalition and a service-learning program in Ohio, I sat on many occasions in a local mosque, synagogues, the Hindu temple, and Protestant and Catholic churches, participating in interfaith and educational events. It always felt like a little bit of heaven on Earth to see the variety of God's faithful people in those events. As I said, you are always welcome at Trinity Lutheran Church, as is everyone. I appreciate the way you have opened your own worship to everyone, as well. If you have thoughts on other ways that our congregations may be able to work together on interfaith understanding, please let us know. You do a wonderful job of presenting your faith in a way that reduces the tension and misunderstanding and allows people to get their questions about Islam and Muslims answered in a way that promotes the true ideals of our faiths. May the work that you do always be pleasing to God, and may God bless you always.
Sincerely, Ron McCoy Adult Sunday School facilitator Trinity Lutheran Church, Pembroke Pines October 2010

Assalaamu Alaikum W.B, I begin in the name of Allaah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. I thank Allaah for guiding Al-Hikmat Services, to help us by furnishing this community with all the books and literature that they were able to donate, Al-Hamdulillaah. We have received both packages and have given some brothers the Qur'aan and have circulated the Al-Hikmat magazine.

Abundance of Wealth can be our DESTRUCTION Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, Take note or heed, be caution of your daily life before its too late. The best interest is to listen, obey and follow. If this is done, then we would certainly be guided. If we chose to turn away from Allaah and his Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) the Last Messenger to mankind then we are disobedient to our own soul. Remember, to recognize the truth, do not let misguidance come to you due to worldly reasons. It is clear that wealth comfort and luxury can be a means of misguidance to a person. This occurs when a person becomes fully engrossed in the pleasures of this worldly life and continues to neglect the commandment of Allaah. People often forget what is lawful and prohibited, they indulge in that which Allaah has made forbidden, causing their hearts to grow hard towards the affairs of the hereafter. Disobedience to Allaah, leads a person to a very dangerous state. When Allaah grants abundance of wealth to a man, inspite of his persistence in acts of disobedience, it is just a way of bringing him closer to DESTRUCTION. Our Lord is ever watchful. I end with these gaining benefits: practice and try to make the efforts which lead to a better human being. May Allah bless Al-Hikmat and all the hard working crew who publish our articles. I remain your Sister in Islam Shaheefa Jasmin Ali Trinidad, West Indies

I READ AL-HIKMAT and would like to learnMore About Islam Dear Brother, My name is Cedric Bryant and I have been reading a lot of your monthly publication that comes through the prison here. I don�t receive it yet, but would like to get it. Each month you have very good articles in it but I want to learn Islam and what it is all about and where it started from. I know that the bad stuff they put on TV and on the news about Muslims are not true. So I want to practice Islam first before I make a commitment and would like to have a female teach me. So if you would please place my ad in your classifieds and send me a monthly publication with it. Also, if you know any single female that is looking for a practicing male, give her my name and address to write to me. Thank you, Cedric Bryant

March Issue 2008 Prepare For Death
Oh dear people take heed for we ought to see the truth. The right guidance keeps us away from evil, for a good deed is charity and it takes us into paradise (jannatul firdaus). Oh my dear human beings, it is sad to know, most of us do not have knowledge in Islam. Remember it�s never to late to turn and reap the benefit that will carry us to the beautiful creation of ALLAH (swt). Oh mankind, trials upon trials will come, but it brings closeness to your creator. As a believer you handle the situation with pray, patients and faith. Oh my dear sadden friend , Allah (swt) don�t give you a burden more that you can bear, for Allah (swt) knows and see all things. Oh dear ones, death will find you wherever you are, the tallest and most secure place, it will still find you. So my dear ones prepare yourself to face the angel of death, so it may be easy for you in that particular field. Allah (swt) is merciful to mankind, so be merciful to others. Oh dear ones let us not lust over the creation. This world is just a play or paradise to the unbeliever, and for the believers its like a prison. People wake up use your brain and mind to know that Allaah�s (swt) creation is much more better. So many good things Allaah has promised his believers, but as muslims we have to work hard to strive to achieve the benefit in the hereafter. Ask Allah(swt) for his pardon and you will enter his garden Oh dear ones there are four things you are frequently to say 1. Kalimah - La illaha illaha.It will build up Iman (faith) 2.Astagfirullah - Beg Allah swt for forgiveness 3.Beg Allah swt to enter paradise (jannatul firdaus) 4.Beg Allah swt to protect you (us) from the hell fire. Oh my dear friend let me leave these few lines, so ponder over it. �Think and make the right choice� Ameen. Whatever mistakes may Allah swt forgive me. Shaheefa Jasmine Ali Trinidad W.I
March Issue 2008 Dedicated To Al-Hikmat�s Editor
This poem is dedicated to him by his aunts, uncles, cousins-in-law and Br. Hamzad Mohammed, whom hail from Trinidad and Tobago.
From rural Gasparillo In the country of Trinbago Was born a true hero Who keeps hearts aglow. One of the Editor�s best He is always in quest Be it in the east or west To preach at Allah�s behest. Islam is his shining light As with it he tries to fight With all his powerful might To put the wrongs right. His battle though, is not easy As some are in a frenzy Always keeping him busy With their moves very crazy. But never to surrender Is the soldier Maulana For he�s a firm believer That success will come Insha Allaah. Quite rightly so is he For Allaah the Almighty Says patience is the key If one is to get victory. Make a dua for the Maulana Individually or together Pleading to Allaah To grant him Jannah. Inshaa Allaah
