YAHSHUA says: "If you do not fast from the world, you will not find the Kingdom of YAH. And if you do not make the Sabbath the true Sabbath, you will not see the Father."

46. Waqaffayna AAala atharihim biAAeesa ibni maryama musaddiqan lima bayna yadayhi mina alttawrati waataynahu al-injeela feehi hudan wanoorun wamusaddiqan lima bayna yadayhi mina alttawrati wahudan wamawAAithatan lilmuttaqeena

46. And in their footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the Law that had come before him: We sent him the Gospel: therein was guidance and light, and confirmation of the Law that had come before him: a guidance and an admonition to th ose who fear God.

47. Walyahkum ahlu al-injeeli bima anzala Allahu feehi waman lam yahkum bima anzala Allahu faola-ika humu alfasiqoona

47. Let the people of the Gospel judge by what God hath revealed therein. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what God hath
revealed, they are (no better than) those who rebel.

48. Waanzalna ilayka alkitaba bialhaqqi musaddiqan lima bayna yadayhi mina alkitabi wamuhayminan AAalayhi faohkum baynahum bima anzala Allahu wala tattabiAA ahwaahum AAamma jaaka mina alhaqqi likullin jaAAalna minkum shirAAatan waminhajan walaw shaa Allahu lajaAAalakum ommatan wahidatan walakin liyabluwakum feema atakum faistabiqoo alkhayrati ila Allahi marjiAAukum jameeAAan fayunabbi-okum bima kuntum feehi takhtalifoona

48. To thee We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety: so judge between them by what God hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the Truth that hath come to the e. To each among you have we prescribed a law and an open way. If God had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to God; i t is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute;

49. Waani ohkum baynahum bima anzala Allahu wala tattabiAA ahwaahum waihtharhum an yaftinooka AAan baAAdi ma anzala Allahu ilayka fa-in tawallaw faiAAlam annama yureedu Allahu an yuseebahum bibaAAdi thunoobihim wa-inna katheeran mina alnnasi lafasiqoona

49. And this (He commands): Judge thou between them by what God hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, but beware of them lest they beguile thee from any of that (teaching) which God hath sent down to thee. And if they turn away, be ass ured that for some of their crime it is God's purpose to punish them. And truly most men are rebellious.

50. Afahukma aljahiliyyati yabghoona waman ahsanu mina Allahu hukman liqawmin yooqinoona

50. Do they then seek after a judgment of (the days of) ignorance? But who, for a people whose faith is assured, can give better judgment than God?

Ethiopia:The Haven of the First Hijra (Migration):
An African Nation is the Muslims’ first refuge

by Najib Mohammed


In Islamic history and tradition, Ethiopia (Abyssinia or
Al-Habasha) is known as the "Haven of the First Migration or
Hijra."

For Muslims, Ethiopia is synonymous with freedom from
persecution and emancipation from fear.

Ethiopia was a land where its king, Negus or Al-Najashi, was
a person renowned for justice and in whose land human rights
were cherished.

The meaning and the significance of "Hijra" is embodied in the
Islamic calendar. Since its inception, the Islamic calendar
represents a history of perpetual struggle between truth and
falsehood, faith and blasphemy, freedom and oppression, light
and darkness, and between peace and war.

The first migration [Hijra] of the Companions and relatives of
the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) to
Ethiopia celebrates the birth of freedom of expression and
beliefs, whereas, the Second Migration of the Prophet
Muhammad to the Madinah celebrates the end of oppression...(cont.)
