1) How did you find out about 7cg?
Well I never knew this forum existed, and at the time I was on another forum, and a sister on that forum, also a popular member on here (won't mention her incase she minds, but sis feel free to name urself if your ok with it, jazakalah khair to the sis too), well she sent me a PM inviting me to this forum, so I eventually joined this forum, and in the beginning wasn't to active, but eventually did when I got to know the amazing people that are on here and the vibrant discussions, and since then this has become the main forum I use now. Credit to all the admin, staff and the members who make this forum what it is.
2) Did you intend to post when you joined? What made you do so if you didn't intend to?
Well I intended to post ocassionaly, but never intended to post frequently, but as I stopped using the other forum I used to use, I started to use this one even more, eventually posting more then I intended to, and by doing so I got to know the forum and the members, and it became obvious what a nice place this was, vibrant, lively and so friendly, with people of great knowledge and really good discussions going on that were beneficial and knowledgable.
3) Why are you an active member of 7cg?
I guess as I started to use it reguarly, I found the forum very beneficial, learning new things about Islam, debating different topics, and gnerally being able to dicuss different issues and topics, that were both lively and engaging, and the fact that the members and staff were so friendly and top people added to that. I also felt I had something to give to the forum, and inshallah I hope I have and do, and because it's a youth forum, and being a youth, it adds to the superb forumming expierence.
4) What do you like most about the forum?
I have to say I like the people on the forum the most, they all make it what it is, friendly, respectful and knowledgable, all of that creates a nice vibe in the forum and some superb discussions. I must add, its quite har finding one thing the most I like, because there are so many other things I like too, the humorous posts, the serious debating and checking out peoples skillz and everything is so cool, I could go on foreverů
5) Does it mean anything being FOTM?
It means a lot, and I'm really flattered, in fact was shocked to find out I was the FOTM, I think there are other members who are far more deserving, dunno what else to say really, lost for words lol, but I could not have become FOTM without my brothers and sisters, jazakallah khairan.
6) Do you intend to stay at the community in future?
Inshallah, if Allah wills, I hope to stay in the forseable future, I've spent a lot of time on the forums in the last month or so, and my post count has actually went into four figure somes, lol, I enjoy this forum a lot and have learnt a lot about some thing on Islam and such, and it's a great laugh too on th forum, some comedians on here, lol.
7) Made any friends at the forum? Who and where from?
Well I hope so! lol some top people on this forum, although we cant see each other, the light can be seen from the members, and alhamdulilah I've met some lovely crazy people, inshallah maybe we can meet in flesh too, well the brothers, when the faraz comes to the UK too, lol. Who are they? Well many of them, won't list them individually, too long and its becoming like essay, and there all from various locations, which makes it even more great.
8) What is the one message you would like to give forumites?
Well as muslims and young muslims, we are living in a time of great struggle. My message to you is as muslims it is our duty to live for the sake of Islam, to do everything for the sake of Allah, because lets face it this life is only temporary, and every minute and every second counts, and we must use our time efficiently, and as young people we can be very complacent. We face one of the most difficult times as muslims, we get ridiculed and humilated for the sake of beliving in Allah, as stated in surah al buruj verse 8 "And they ill-treated them for no other reason than that they believed in Allah, Exalted in Power, Worthy of all Praise!", what' hapening to muslims is not a dream, it's a reality, people are being killed around the world for being a muslim, almost as if they were some rubbish of an ant, and as the future generation of the Ummah, the responsibilty will be on us, so we must take positive steps forward, educate ourselves, learn everything there is about Islam, practice it, not just learn it and store it in our minds, and actively make the situations of muslims good again. As stated in a hadith: The Sahabi and the prophet were once gathered when a Sahaba (forgotten who) asked the Rasool SAW "will we be the generation most loved by Allah, o Nabi?" The Rasool SAW replied "no". The sahabi were saddened and enquired as to which generation would be most beloved to Allah.The prophet replied "There will be an age of Muslims who will struggle to relight the fire of Islam when it has been extinguished. Their reward will be the equivalent of fourty of your lives, and they will be the most beloved generation in Allah's eyes". The enlightened youth must enlighten the light of Islam!
I'd also like to take this opputunity to also advise my brothers and sisters to stay safe, because we face many dangers in this time, niqaabis are being attacked and muslims are being arrested for no such reason other then speaking out. So when we do write and say things make sure you keep them sensible and responsible, there are laws out there that restict our freedom of speech, whether we like it or not, and we should be aware of this and not do anything stupid to get ourselves into unwanted trouble. You saw what happened to the idiot ( and I call him an idiot because he is one, his also one of thos abu bakri nutter follower), the guy who had disgusting comments on a placard outside a protest, this kind of idiotic comment gets youinto trouble, and they are not necessaryand unislamic, we should keep our speech sensible and responsible, and speak in the manner of respect and knowledge.
Anyways, I'll leave you with my favourite quote:
''I am a traveler seeking the Truth, a human searching for the meaning of humanity, and a citizen seeking dignity, freedom, stability and welfare under the shade of Islam. I am a free man who is aware of the purpose of his existence and calls, truly, my prayer and my sacrifice, my life and my death, are all for Allah, the Cherisher of the worlds; He has no partner. This I am commanded and I am among those who submit to His Will. This is who I am. Who are you?''
