“I bear witness there is no God but Allah and I bear witness that Prophet Mohammad is the Servant and Messenger of Allah”
This is the basic belief of Islam. After you have understood its meaning your journey of Practicing Islam begins and ends with your death. You will be tested in your faith and in your dealings with People. If you understand these Tests you will be able to pass them. A Good Muslim learns the Divine knowledge necessary to pass these difficult Tests of Allah under the guidance of an Imam or Righteous Teacher. Islam means surrender to Allah out of deep Love, Understanding, Taqwa and Respect of The Creator. We love all Prophets of Allah, and Respect their Teachings. Islam is the Final Divine Religion.
In order to understand Islam a Believer must understand Life of Prophet Mohammad mpbwh. In order to understand Life of Prophet Mohammad one must understand that Prophet Mohammad came to cleanse the wrong ideas and wrong concepts that previous Human generations have wrongly attributed to Allah. His whole Life after the revelation began, was spent in Teaching and Guiding Mankind to Surrender to the Will of Allah. His companions Loved him and followed his Teachings out of Love and obedience to Allah. By the permission of Allah swt, He was able to help people understand Life and its Meaning and was able to show them how to live a God Centered Life thru which peace and contentment can be achieved. Prophet Mohammad was a simple man and taught compassion and mercy towards all Mankind. He forgave his enemies and forgave people who turned against him because of Ignorance. He was sent as a Mercy to Mankind.

Looking at the Kaaba with 2 + million Muslims making sajda , surrendering
and prostrating before Allah is an awe inspiring sight. One feels close
to Allah very close.
1.The Prophet testified to that. He said: "There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days." The people asked, "Not even jihad for the sake of Allah?" He said, "Not even jihad for the sake of Allah, except in the case of a man who went out to fight giving himself and his wealth up for the cause, and came back with nothing." (Bukhari)
2.The Prophet used to fast on the ninth day of Dhu'l-Hijjah and he said: "Fasting the Day of 'Arafah (ninth Dhul-hijjah) is an expiation for (all the sins of) the previous year and an expiation for (all the sins of) the coming year." (Muslim)

You are welcome to come and Join us for any Friday Prayers. Just call 858-513-2733 or Just come by at 1:00 p.m. each Friday at 13495 Poway Road , Poway.
During 2002- 2004, Imam Syed presented Islam to Palomar Community College World Religion class. Prophet Moses and Prophet Jesus were Muslims so was Prophet Noah and Ibraheem. Their message was the same, " Their is only ONE God, Worship Him and I am a Messenger or Prophet of God, Follow Me"
Muslims believe that Prophet Mohammad mpbwh was sent with the last divine 100% accurate, protected word of God called Quran. Muslims are to respect and believe in the previous books of God as long as their teaching is consistent with the Message and Truth contained in the Quran. Muslims believe God has sent Messengers to correct the incorrect beliefs practiced by people and their will be no new divinely ordained religion after Islam. All religions contain some wisdom, but Islam is the most balanced, moderate and chosen religion by God for mankind. Islam is the Final Way of Life for all the people of the world and is a Mercy and to Mankind. We believe Quran is a Miracle and contains only divine knowledge. It was not written by Prophet Mohammad, It was revealed to Him thru Angel Gibraeel over a period of 23 years step by step, to take mankind out of the depth of darkness into the Light of Allah's divine Knowledge.
We invite you to Learn about Islam and meet Muslims each Friday in Poway at Friday Prayers.

We Begin In the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
O’ Mankind Have (Taqwa ) God Consciousness and Follow Me……….is the Message of All Prophets of Islam
ADAM, NOAH, IBRAHEEM, MOSES, JESUS, MOHAMMAD (May Peace be upon them All) were all Prophets of Islam.
Quran mentions the names of 25 Prophets of Allah, which are also names discussed in the Bible.
We are taught that Allah swt has sent over 124,000 Prophets to Mankind for its Guidance and the Last Accurate, complete and
Un changeable Divine Guidance is contained in the Quran.
Understanding Islam and Following Islam is a Life Long Process…….
It begins when you decide to Surrender to Allah and ask for Guidance……..
It is achieved daily by Constant Vigilance and Self Purification thru Remembrance Of Allah swt and implementing the Sunna of Rasool Allah.
It needs to be protected and refreshed daily… from the effects of Shaitan, Dunya, Nafse and Hawa.
We invite you to join us each day and each Friday to Learn the Right Concepts of Islam, Imaan and Ihsan.
O’ Mankind Your Lord is One, He begets not Nor is He Begotten.
Surrender to Him to achieve internal Balance of Rooh and Nafse.
Say “ La Ila Ha Illal Lah ” There is NO God Except One God
Say Qul ho wallah Ho Ahad. Say that Allah is ONE
Say that Prophet Mohammad is the Servant and Last Messenger of Allah.
And you have entered thru the gate of Islam…… Now you are a Muslim! But Deep Belief requires Practice….
So Now you must Learn the Divine Knowledge that will bring you closer to Allah and Prophet Mohammad (s.a.w)
This is contained in Quran and explained by Prophet Mohammad and his Followers……

Prayer of the Prophet Mohammad for difficult decisions in Life
A Message From the Final Prophet Mohammad (may peace be with him )of Islam to those who Believe
Aaozo Billahe Min - ush shaitan Nirrajeem, BisMillah Hir RahMaan Nir Raheem
The Translation of Duae Istikhara of Prophet Mohammad (mpbwh)….He used this dua so often that we thought this would be made a compulsory dua….. ( The Sahaba)
HOW TO PERFORM ?
Dear Believer, Read it slowly, understand it, and think about it, Then offer two rakah Nafil prayer and then make this dua from the bottom of your heart so that it permeates your Nafse and reaches your Rooh.
WHAT IS THE SPIRIT AND MEANING OF THIS DUA ?
O Allah, I ask you from the basis of your Knowledge the Good ( Khair). Because
You are the All Mighty, I ask you a difficult question from your Great Blessings (Fazl) Because, You have All The Power ( Qudrah) and I do not have any power (compared to yours), Because You have All the Knowledge (Ilm) and I do not have any knowledge (compared to yours) And Because You have All the Knowledge of All the Unseen and the Unknown. ( Ghaib )
O Allah, If this decision, action, planning that I am about to undertake
Has Good in it and
is better for my Deen ( Way of Life) and
is better for my Worldly Provisions and
is better in its Culmination and Completion, THEN,
Make it Blessed for me and
Ordain it for me and
Make it easy for me
But, if this decision, action or planning (thought process) that I am about to undertake
is Bad for me and
is Bad for my Deen and
is Bad for my Worldly Provisions and
is Bad from its end result perspective, THEN,
Keep ,me away from it and
Keep me away from its end result and
Protect me from it and
Prevent me from taking that decision or planning. And
Please Provide Khair (Goodness and Kindness) wherever it is and
Finally Please make me understand this decision and
Make me Content with it and
Make me able to accept it…………Ameen.
Then, Dear Believer, Wait and let Allah swt tell you( by his signs) what You should do.
If You want to learn the signs of Allah……then Read, Listen and absorb the Quran frequently from your Rooh and store it in Your Qalb (Heart of Rooh.)
Brother Syed has translated this dua with best intentions and accuracy. May Allah accept it and correct it if there are any deficiencies or defects in its translations. E mail any corrections at firstname.lastname@example.org

Prophet Mohammad was not a Sunni or Shia he was a Muslim. Muslims follow various fiqhs ( School of understanding). We respect all of the right School of Thoughts that fall within the Sharia and broad guidelines of Quran. we follow all rightfully guided Imams and Teachers as long as their teaching does not contradict the main teachings of Islam.
