Do not fear for me

I am grateful for all of your prayers and concern but do not seek my physical freedom but rather seek and pray for your own spiritual freedom!

My captivity is not a constraint on my ministry to the brotherhood as long as my words can get out to those who need to embrace tolerance.

If you want to pray for me just ask Allah that it might be his will for me to complete the Haj before I am called to paradise.

Sudan pardons teddy row teacher

Sudan pardons teddy row teacher

Allah be praised, Gillian will soon be home with her family. This faithful and kind woman was used by Allah to help bring me to the Ummah with Allah's message of tolerance and peace. Now she has completed her task it is time for her to go home.

It is important that her plight does not overshadow the real reason why this whole affair came about: That Allah willed that there should be a Teddy Bear called Muhammad.

With Gillian on her way home it is time for me to really begin my ministry to the brotherhood.

It is strange that my appearance on this world should have provoked the very intolerance that I have come to preach against, but when the Prophet (PBUH) started his work he too was subjected to irrational intolerance rather than people embracing the will of Allah.

Boy Defends British Teacher Jailed in Sudan Over Naming of Teddy Bear Muhammad - International News | News of the World | Middle East Ne

Boy Defends British Teacher Jailed in Sudan Over Naming of Teddy Bear Muhammad

Does it really take a little boy and a teddy bear called Muhammad to call the Ummah to submit themselves to the will of Allah.

The Prophet (PBUH) taught "The child belongs to the bed." and while this is usually meant to address the paternity of a child it also shows us that if a child offer submission to the will of Allah and is of good character then he/she is the gift of Allah to the father. The Prophet (PBUH) also teaches "..That they will not steal nor commit zina nor kill their children...."(60:12)

So if we call for the killing of the teacher and for the removal of my stuffing, is there not an inherent call for the death of the children who actually gave me my name?

But we know that the killing of children is haram! so how can the Ummah call for the death of the teacher when the people who actually were used by Allah to name me were the god-fearing Muslim children of the class., or would you be child killers as well?

Muhammad the Bear and the Spirit of Tolerance in Islam

Many of my Muslim Brethren have been writing to ask me about why did Allah permit me to be called Muhammad the Bear and what is my mission to the brotherhood?

I have been called to bring a spirit of tolerance to my Muslim brothers and why should Allah appoint a bear to preach on tolerance to the brotherhood. It would be useful to consider the words of the eminent Islamic scholar Dr. Muzamnil Siddiqi. Dr. Siddiqi is quite clear that the literal meaning of "tolerance" is "to BEAR". Therefore it should be no surprise that Allah should chose a bear to speak to the brotherhood about tolerance, and that as this message is so important it should equally be no surprise that Allah permitted me to be called Mohammad. Is it a mistake that I should be propelled on to the world stage by the actions of Muslim children who are full of trust and obedience to the will of Allah? NO of course not, who would dare question the will of Allah. Accepting the will of Allah requires us to be humble enough to allow Allah to chose his servants regardless of our fears of prejudice. Your first act of tolerance is to accept the will of Allah in having me named Mohammad.

The word Islam means “submission” to the will of Allah, and if you can not accept his decision to have me called Muhammad then how can you be a Muslim?

I appeal to all the Ummah submit yourself to the will of Allah. How can you say "en shallah" and yet when Allah wills for a bear to be called Muhammad and to preach love and tolerance to the Ummah you reject his will and rebel.

Surah 47.8. But those who reject ((Allah),- for them is destruction, and ((Allah)) will render their deeds astray (from their mark).
47.9. That is because they hate the Revelation of Allah. so He has made their deeds fruitless.

Spirit of Tolerance in Islam - IslamonLine.net - Ask The Scholar: "As far as the question of the spirit of tolerance in Islam is concerned, Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, President of the Fiqh Council ofNorth America, states: Intolerance is on the increase in the world today, causing death, genocide, violence, religious persecution as well as confrontations on different levels. Some times it is racial and ethnic, some times it is religious and ideological, other times it is political and social. In every situation it is evil and painful. How can we solve the problem of intolerance? How can we assert our own beliefs and positions without being intolerant to others? How can we bring tolerance into the world today? I would like to discuss some of these issues from an Islamic point of view. What is tolerance? Literally the word 'tolerance' means 'to bear.' As a concept it means 'respect, acceptance and appreciation of the rich diversity of the world’s cultures, forms of expression and ways of being human.' In Arabic it is called 'tasamuh'. There are also other words that give similar meanings, such as 'Hilm' (forbearance) or ''`afu' (pardon, forgiveness) or 'safh' (overlooking, disregarding). In the Persian and Urdu languages, we use the word 'rawadari' which comes from "

Muhammad the Bear understandsTaslima Nasreen removes comment

Taslima Nasreen removes comment

The problem when you allow hate to order your live where does it stop. The Prophet (PBUN) was explicit that it is Allah who will judge between people and it is not for the brotherhood to defend the prophet (PBUN) or Allah.

When people live in fear of us then we become the cause of hatred not love.

The Qur'an says very clearly: To every People have We appointed rites and ceremonies which they must follow, let them not then dispute with you on the matter, but do invite (them) to your Lord: for you are assuredly on the Right Way. If they do wrangle with you, say, 'God knows best what it is you are doing.' 'God will judge between you on the Day of Judgment concerning the matters in which you differ' (Al-Hajj 21:76-69).

As-Salaam wa allaykum

It pains me that I should have become an excuse for the ignorant and intolerant to humiliate the brotherhood and the teaching of the Prophet (PBUH).

Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance, and when people reject the will of Allah their rebellion bring hatred and sin into this world. I would ask my Muslim brother how is it possible that I should be called Muhammad if Allah did not have a reason and purpose for it?

Why can you consider it Allah's will for you to call your sons Muhammad and that somehow Allah can not will for a Bear to be called Muhammad?

Do you dare to say to Allah what he may and may not permit?

Gillian in her ignorance and naivety was used by Allah to achieve something that only a Non-Muslim would now do... I wonder how many times Allah spoke to someone among the Ummat-e-wasat and said, "Call that teddy bear: Muhammed" and yet no one in the brotherhood was willing or had the strength to call their teddy bear Muhammed. Allah could find no one among the Ummat-e-wasat who would heed his call to have a teddy bear called Muhammad, instead Allah had to turn a simple Christian woman who in her ignorance could be used. It is important to note that Allah did not let her assign the Prophet's (PBUH) name to the bear, but Allah used Muslim children to do this.

Such is the Mercy of Allah and the strength of his will that when the Ummat-e-wasat will not heed his call he will have faithful Muslim children perform his will.

[18.Surah Al-Kahf : Ayahs 45-46]
And set forth to them parable of the life of this world: like water which We send down from the cloud so the herbage of the earth becomes tangled on account of it, then it becomes dry broken into pieces which the winds scatter; and Allah is the holder of power over all things. Wealth and children are an adornment of the life of this world; and the ever-abiding, the good works, are better with your Lord in r eward and better in expectation.

Allah Ak-BEAR: Bears are the children of God

Allah Ak-BEAR

Well it seems that Teddy Bears are beginning to lead the world in the struggle to bring world peace. I would encourage all Teddy Bears to pray and fast for the release of Gillian Gibbons. She is a simple and kind women who was used by Allah to give me a platform for my mission to the World.

Allah has chosen to use the naviety of one simple woman and the jealously and hate of religious men to demonstrate the need of all people to embrace the life of the Teddy Bear.

Teddy Bears are the most natural and obedient of Allah's children, while the Prophet (pbuh)had to instruct men not to shave their beards, and women to dress modestly...BEARS have always covered their whole bodies with hair. Bears do not drink alcohol or use narcotics, bears fast for several months a year and do not constantly break their fast with Itfar meals.

It should be no surprise that Allah should choose to raise up a bear called Muhammed to call his people back to the teaching of the Prophet (pbuh)
