CAIR Ads Promoting Diversity Go Up on Buses in Florida
 

(TAMPA, FL, 11/12/13) -- The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-FL) said today that advertisements the organization produced to promote diversity and respect for civil rights went up on buses in Hillsborough County.

 

 

 

CAIR-FL's ads feature a photo of eight CAIR staffers and the group's logo, with the message: "Embracing Diversity at Work, Defending Civil Rights in The Community." They had initially been blocked by the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) board of directors, but that rejection was reversed after an appeal to the board.

"We are pleased to finally see our ads up on area buses and helping to promote  mutual understanding and respect for the rights of all Floridians," said CAIR-FL Tampa Executive Director Hassan Shibly.

 

CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

[karachi-Friends] Daily Qur'an & Hadith 13 Nov 2013 (08 Muharam 1435)

English Translation of Al-Quran

[26].Surah Ash-Shuara [The Poets]

Ayat 170. So Allah saved him and his family, all,

Ayat 171. Except an old woman (Lut's PBUH wife) among those who remained behind.

Ayat 172. Then afterward Allah destroyed the others.

Ayat 173. And Allah rained on them a rain (of torment). And how evil was the rain of those who had been warned.

Ayat 174. Verily, in this is indeed a sign, yet most of them are not believers.

Ayat 175. And verily! Your Lord, He is indeed the All-Mighty, the Most Merciful.

Tafseer of Ayat 170 to 175. So Allah delivered Lut PBUH and all his family members protection against his own people whow wish to harm them and torment, Except an old woman who lingered behind as she us to support the evil act of nation. This was Lut's PBUH wife, who lingered behind and was among those who perished. All the rest Allah destroyed utterly and rained down on them a shower (of marked brimstone): and evil was the shower on those who were admonished (but heeded not)!. Verily in this is a Sign: but most of them do not believe. And verily thy Lord is He, the Exalted in Might Most Merciful.

English Translation of Hadith  

Hazrat Ibn Umer (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) and his Companions reached Al-Hijr, the dwellings of the Thamud people, he admonished his Companions (saying), "Do not pass by these people who are being tormented, without weeping, lest the punishment should befall you as it had befallen them.''

[Al-Bukhari Book 04, Chapter 55, Hadith # 564].

Another narration is: Hazrat Ibn Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) said: When the Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) passed near Al-Hijr, he said, "Do not enter without weeping, the dwellings of those who wronged themselves, lest the same chastisement should fall upon you as it had fallen upon them.'' Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH) then covered his head and sped up until he crossed the valley of the tormented people.

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Ash-Shuara Ayat 173."Allah rained on them a rain (of torment). And how evil was the rain of those who had been warned" This Hadith is related to the address which he gave to his Companions on the occasion. Here is an instruction that when we happen to pass through the territory of a nation destroyed in the past as a result of Divine wrath, we are advised to quicken one's pace. That is why we have been commanded to avoid the company of the corrupt and the wrongdoers, lest we meet their bad end, too. As the Qur'an says: "And incline not toward those who do wrong, lest the Fire should touch you.'' (11:113) May Allah save us from it!.
