Assalaamu 'alaikum everybody!
So, as you may have noticed, I have been mentioning a website in some of my videos, YourMuslimNeighbor.com, as a place to get free copies of the translation of the meaning of the Qur'an in English or Spanish. The site was started by my friend Bilal, and we have been working to expand this Dawah initiative further, through printing our own booklets, handing out booklets in Times Square, hand-delivering them door-to-door, running Dawah booths and tables, and much more insha'Allah. Right now we are working on raising funds for this project. We keep getting requests, so it costs a lot just to maintain what we have now, so expanding will take a lot. Check out the video to learn more and find out how you can help too insha'Allah!

Here is the first example of a random fact I want to share and save. I watched this video today. In this new episode of The Deen Show, Eddie has on two guests, one Catholic, one Muslim, to briefly discuss the Qur'an. It would have been great if they had about two hours to do this, but they did an excellent job with the time they had.
The part that I found most interesting, which starts at 26:21, is the mention of Haman, Chief Architect of the Pharaoh at the time of Moses (as), in the Qur'an. For centuries, Jewish and Christian scholars criticized the Qur'an for this mention, erroneously believing it to be a blending with the story of Babel in the Bible, which mentions a man named Haman. It wasn't until this century that Egyptologists discovered that Haman was indeed the name of Pharaoh's Chief Architect. This was learned by translating the ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics. This information certainly could not have been known my the Prophet Muhammad (saws) unless he was the true prophet of Allah! Check out the video insha'Allah, since I'm only telling you what I heard from this brother, and he explains it far more clearly than I do.

Assalaamu 'alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu!
Ok, so, I've been thinking of starting a blog for a while, and now alhamdulillah I'm doing it. I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to be using this for, nor am I sure how often I'm going to be using it. If I had to guess at what this will be, I would say that, insha'Allah, it's going to be a place for me to keep you updated on new videos coming out, to post videos, articles, and links that I think are interesting and want to share, and a place where I can archive little tidbits of knowledge, small fragments of wisdom that I pick up from here and there that I don't want to forget. I have a lot of knowledge in my head, most of which I cannot reference. To be able to externally use what you know, you need to be able to know where you learned it. This blog will, insha'Allah, help me to keep track of random facts that I don't want to loose.
As for the rest, Allahu 'alam.
