Allahuma sali ala Muhammad wa Ali Muhammad!

 

The first shia masjid opens in Copenhagen. Guess who also attended the open ceremony? Sheikh Habib al-Kadhimi (ha).

Here you see Sheikh Habib Kadheimi (ha) sitting - a very well known scholar.

 

 

 

Denmark’s largest Shia Muslim mosque opened in Copenhagen on Thursday. 

 

The Imam Ali Mosque is located on Vibevej in Copenhagen’s Nordvest district. The 2,100 square metre mosque is topped by a turquoise dome and two 32-metre minarets and has space for 1,500 people. 

 

 

The Imam Ali mosque has been in the works since 2009, when plans for its construction were approved by the City of Copenhagen. The new facility has billed itself as “one mosque for all” and has promised services in a variety of languages. 

 

In an invitaiton to its official opening, the Imam Ali Mosque stressed that everyone was welcome. 

 

“Imam Ali Mosque wants to start a competion between similar faith societies to see who can be the most open to the local community. Therefore we look forward to seeing all residents, Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Everyone is welcome, regardless of gender, race, ethnic origin, religion, faith, handicap, age or sexual orientation,” the Facebook event read.

Salam,

Same here. Reading this feels terrible. How can those who claim to be the partisans of the Prophet and of Amir al Mominin be scared by the gay lobby ?

May Allah save us. I would never go to such a mosque, be it the largest in Europe, Africa or Asia.

Hopefully it's just to allow people who have claimed asylum on account of being gay (falsely, obviously) to be able to visit the mosque without Danish immigration becoming suspicious.

Listen, you cannot write in a democratic country "We say that gays are not allowed in our mosque", imagine how bashing they would get. Now, they didn't write that being gay is acceptable, but rather that they are allowed to enter. Read #9, pretty sums it up.

as salamu alaykum,

 

my husband is pouring thru his books for a riawayh, we had a nice amal and jashn, today, I still have by 2hrs on libairy cpu, anyway all people here made good points, however there is a happy medium. at the hussaynia we run, my husband simply made a rule, that we will non stop any gays who want to come to majalis, dars, etc. (none have come yet) but they can not bring boyfriends hug men, serve food etc. we also do not give them shaddah until (if any came) they stop being gay.

 

5 6 7 8 we support the ahlul bayt!

Salam,

Why not simply skipping the gay friendly (and by the way hypocritical) speech?

Why not allowing alcohol in our mosques if this is a standard in the West?

We can not be Islamic and condone attitudes which Allah almighty disapproves and for which He destroyed entire cities.

It feels terrible that some issues bece taboo. Heck, homosexuality used to be a taboo thing. Now you have to pretendy it'all good out of fear?

At least avoid the topic for God's sake, you are religious people.

Should we also bar those who commit adultery, lie, cheat, and commit other sins from the mosque? They are not condoning homosexuality, they are permitting those that commit homosexual acts to enter; there is a huge difference. Similar to what was said by other members, how do you expect people to come to Islam if they are prevented from even entering a mosque? We sometimes confuse the sin with the individual. There are countless other sins that people commit and still enter mosques, should we prevent them as well? If one can be forgiven for other sins, why cannot someone who commits homosexual acts also seek repentance and forgiveness in the house of Allah swt as well?

If they are saying they " want to start a competition between similar faith societies to see who can be most open to the local community", that is pretty darn welcoming to all. :-) Doesn't appear that they intend to just " tolerate" folks, IMHO.

        This may or may not be true. But I think it does make sense that the initial round-up of the billionaires was done by a foreign agency and not Saudis. The simple reason being that if Saudis had been involved someone would have tipped off the currents guests of the Carlton Ritz. IMHO.
    • We human beings are open systems, we need continuous interaction with environment to survive. The environment of space is not suitable for us, hence it seems impossible that we would evolve such organs which help us to survive up there. We are built to live on earth, that is the truth, we must remember that fact. And we should also remember the fact that everything has a fate, including this whole universe. So if we start planning to leave earth now, we would need to plan to leave the milky way galaxy afterwards.... 

        
    • I personally dont own a car. I have a driving licence but I am not brave enough to drive. When I took part in driving classes I really liked driving and I thought that my driving was very good but when the instructor told me that I was not good in half-clutch driving, I somewhat lost my confidence. Even once I got in my father's car and started driving but I forgot to release the parking brake and so I drove with much difficulty because the brake was unreleased. Then when I returned and parked the car, I found out my mistake!
    • SCIENCE alone is insufficient.
      It can only determine truth in the Physical. It can only determine truth about an observable phenomenon. But with SCIENCE came Technology. Technology has made it so easy to look up information that there is no reason to think or have to do work. There is no emphasis on REASON anymore! We are becoming slaves to the materialistic system.  But Pure Reason is also insufficient. 
      Aristotle was one of the great champions of pure reason in ancient Greece. He believed heavy objects fall faster than light ones. And since Aristotle believed it and Aristotle was an authority on such matters, it remained the accepted wisdom for over a thousand years until Galileo decided to test the proposition. 
      As it turns out, heavy objects fall at the same rate as light objects (discounting wind resistance). So Aristotle was wrong and it took a single well designed experiment to overturn a thousand years of received wisdom.  Every object on this planet, independent of size, experiences the same (Constant acceleration) gravitational acceleration so all falling objects have the same acceleration.  That is what Galileo did. That was the part that was missing from pure reason. That is the part that science adds.
