:salam:

I found this video and it's pure entertainment, you might want to see this with some popcorn. How can a "developed nation" with all its sophisticated weaponry and technology be so wrong? They changed their purpose for "war" several times. Allaah azzawajal exposed them!

I'm sure the Iraqis had no love for Saddam after years of sanctions and unnecessary invasions of 2 countries that ruined their economy, but how is a foreign power coming in and dropping more bombs on you going to fix everything? Not that I think America went into Iraq to liberate them or anything, it was a smokescreen for geopolitical and economic interests, but I think even for people who buy this rhetoric of bringing democracy to certain countries, there is a disconnect between liberation and bombing (liberation through killing, liberation through dropping depleted uranium etc.) Ultimately I think people from within have to build a movement to build a movement, and this is not something that just impacts dictatorships but also democracies that have increasingly become oligarchic.

What democracy did they bring where? They remove a tyrant, talk about the people electing, then let the remaining tyrants battle over what's left while they go on to "liberate" another country. Liberation by eradication seems to be taking longer than they thought. I'm hoping Trump does not see it the same way.

    • Alaikis Salaam sister,  Why don't you refer the book called 'Mafatih al-Jinan'. It has Aa'mal and duas for every month.  Search Google, play store or App store. 
    • Salaam Aleikum, Let say there is period of time where a born Muslim live in west and have no idea of anything about God, Islam, Prayer, Islamic laws and the person lives only according his desires and have ignorance about the matters of Islam. If the person realize God, and realize Islam and start to practice Islam, will the past sins be all forgiven?  Second, what happens to the Salaat and Fasting of that time, does it need to do Qada?
    • “... there will be there all that the souls could desire, all that the eyes could delight in …” (Quran 43:71) “Eat and drink at ease for that which you have sent forth (good deeds) in days past!” (Quran 69:24) “… They will be adorned therein with bracelets of gold, and they will wear green garments of fine silk and heavy brocade.  They will recline therein on raised thrones.  How good [is] the recompense!  How beautiful a couch [is there] to recline on!” (Quran 18:31) not hear therein ill speech or commission of sin.  But only the saying of: Peace! Peace!” (Quran 56:25-26) There will be no enmity between people nor ill-feelings: “And We shall remove from their breasts any (mutual) hatred or sense of injury (which they had, if at all, in the life of this world)…” (Quran 7:43)   “And whoever obeys God and the Messenger – those will be with the ones upon whom God has bestowed favor – of the prophets, the steadfast affirmers of truth, the martyrs and the righteous.  And excellent are those as companions!” (Quran 4:69) “Crystal-white, delicious to those who drink (thereof), free from intoxication, nor will they suffer intoxication therefrom” (Quran 37:46-47)   “...rivers of water incorruptible; rivers of milk of which the taste never changes...” (Quran 47:15)   they shall have therein purified mates…” (Quran 2:25) “And when you look there (in Paradise) you will see a delight (that cannot be imagined), and a great dominion.” (Quran 76:20) 
    • A penny for your thoughts!  Come on people.
    • ^ Added to OP "some" western Muslims, to avoid generalization, because that was not the OP intention to generalize. And let's calm down please.
