Apologies for the infrequent blog roundups… but here are a few of the latest gems to be found in the Islamosphere (or at least, the ones that I managed to dig up… please let us know if you think there are others that should be included in this list as well!).

~~ Keeping It Real (in the prayer) by brother Abu Eesa Niamuatullah. An absolute MUST READ for EVERYONE!!!
It’s probably one of our most common and indeed biggest individual problems that we face in our salah/namaz/prayer every day and that is to actually know what you’re doing, where you are, what you’re saying, what’s going on, feeling the presence and making it a real act of worship.”

~~ Khawla Hurayrah pointed out that “Desert Rose” by Muhammad AlShareef will be playing, one episode each day on www.reelopener.com
~~ Ibn AlHyderabadee (I hope one day the brother will consider shortening/simplifying the nick :) ) has been working hard for Islamic knowledge dissemination:

~~ Amir Butler works off Abu Easa’s blog entry on Insurance here.
~~ Creedal and Spiritual Reflection on Imam Bukhari’s definition of Iman by Sh. Yusuf
~~ Read what Tariq Nelson finds “Insulting”

~~ Videos of Amr Khaled with English voice over. Courtesy Mujahideen Ryder. —END UPDATES.

~~ Sister UniqueMuslimah has a request to make of you all… especially if you’re any good with setting up websites!

“But I got thinking. I want to re-decorate the website. I don’t want to open it up like the way it was. I want the people to know that behind the scenes these past few months we were working hard to bringing an updated look. That’s why I pray to God that someone out there volunteers to be a web-designer who knows how to design a website with php-nuke as that’s what I’m using. I pray someone out there can help me with mysql, which is also what I am using for the databases we are running. I am more than willing to share the good deeds with volunteers. But who wants to make good deeds, I don’t know. It is hard work. And we’re all busy.”

~~ Sister OrganicMuslimah writes about a very serious issue that’s found in many communities – and unfortunately, in the Muslim community/ world as well. As uncomfortable as it may be, sexual abuse does exist amongst us – may Allah protect us all from the harm of that which He has created, ameen.

“There is no shame in education; it’s better to be safe than sorry. Lets keep our children safe.”

~~ Brother Nuqtah discusses the phenomenon of how so many people speak about Islam… yet with a total lack of knowledge and understanding, which is of no benefit to speaker/ writer or listener/reader.

“Muslim discussion forums, blogs, online communities, journals etcetera are rife with discourses on everything, and anything even remotely related to Islam. Islam does not impose a limit or hinderance on thinking, pondering, or even questioning. However, there is a fine line dividing an ‘honest question’ and a ‘judgemental question’; the latter being more of a quasi-critique of one aspect or another of islam.”

And that, dear readers, is all I have to offer you for now… amazingly, I do have a life outside of the blogosphere, and so cannot spend as much time as I wish perusing the fascinating corridors and coffeeshops of the Islamosphere :P

May Allah increase us all in Emaan, purify our intentions, and aid us in doing good for His Sake, ameen!
