Kaafir, the New F-word

Censored

It was something I learned very young: Never say the word kaafir. I didn't know Arabic at the time, but I knew it was worse than a curse word. It was the most evil word you could possibly utter. Call a person anything you want, but never this. A kaafir was evil. A kaafir was a monster. A kaafir was ... Read More »

Some Knowledge is not Taken Except Like This

Knowledge

“A muhaddith will never be complete until they narrate from who is above them, equal to them, and below them”.
