Assalāmu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullāhi Wabarakath,

MashAllah, Shaykh Sa'ad Nu'mani has a beautiful recitation. Apparently this Shaykh, who is a direct descendant of Imam Abu Hanifa [R], has the ability to imitate various Qurra around the World. He was born in Karachi, Pakistan and shifted to Medina, Saudia Arabia where he grew up and studied ilm. He has led taraweeh prayers in the Holy city of Medina.

Here is his recitation of the end of Surah Maryam which I absolutely love:

assalamu alaikum,

I myself love to hear the qira'at of Sheikh Sa'ad Numani. I also had the privilege of hearing him live in Toronto. I just thought I'd make a correction about his place of origin. In on of the places that he performed at, he actually clearly stated that he's not born in Madina, but is born in Karachi, Pakistan. Thought I'd share it with you since I think he doesn't want people getting the wrong idea.

Oh thats awesome. I'd love to hear him live. Jazakallah khair, I'll correct that. The reason I wrote that was because it was said on another site that he was born in Medina, Saudia Arabia, thats why I wrote it. But InshaAllah I'll correct it. :)

Dear Veiled Muslimah,
I have lived in the Gulf for two years and I am a Christian. I have been deeply impressed by how my Muslim friends and acquaintances take their faith seriously. This is very admirable.
I have a question for you about this recitation. It seems to say Muslims should take delight in defeating Christians and be happy in the knowledge that Christians will be punished severely for believing that God had a son, Jesus.
This makes me sad. I respect Muslims and leave their faith to them. I had hoped Muslims would respect my right to believe what I believe. I believe God will judge each and every one of us when we come before Him after we die. No one else may judge but Him. I do not find any happiness in the idea that any honest person - be he a Muslim, Christian, Hindi, etc., - be thrown into the fires of Hell for having grown up with the "wrong faith."
Do you believe Muslims should kill all non-believers?

Dear A Reader,

Thank-you for being open and honest with your questions. :)

In Islam, the thought of Isa [Jesus - May Allahs peace and blessings be upon him] being a son of God is unthinkable and borders on being blasphemous. The Qurán only goes ahead to confirm this. I think we can all safely say that although Judaism, Islam and Christianity have some very similar beliefs, there are some major differences that we cannot comprehend. One of them being this, the belief in Jesus [PBUH] being the Son Of God. Islam believes that there is only one God, the all-mighty and saying he has a son is an insult to him.

Secondly, the verse in the Quran, which says, 'And we shall drive the Mujrimun to Hell, in a thirsty state' is not specifically talking about just Christian, but sinners and others. In fact, a Muslim who has sinned will go through the fires of hell to be purified, before entering into Paradise. You need to be a practicing Muslim to enter into paradise.

I have a question, does not the bible say those who do not follow it will go to hell, or those who do not follow in the path of Jesus not attain salvation?

In general, as Muslims we respect other religions, especially Christianity and Judaism because we consider them to be our Sister religion. In fact, when the Muslims were first persecuted in Islamic history, they migrated to a Christian King and country which gave them refuge. :)

And no, I don't think Muslims should kill all non-believers. In fact there is a saying of the Prophet sallalahu alayhi wasallam, that anyone who kills a Man without cause, it is as if he has killed the whole of mankind.

Regardless of popular belief, mass genocide of other religions in Islam isn't allowed. ;)

[The last part should be read with sarcasm and a hint of humour].

I'd like to add something to my comment though, the rules of 'killing' change during times of War. You are allowed to attack and/or defend your enemy while fighting. Obviously those only who are fighting you.

Dear Veiled Muslimah,
Thanks for replying so quickly and so kindly.
I am an American Catholic, and as far as I know my faith says this about who may go to Paradise, or Heaven: all our lives God is there for us, loving us, waiting for us to love and obey Him. Even after death we will still be given a chance to love God. If even it is only after death that we come to love God, we will have a chance to go to Heaven and be with our Lord. We may go directly there or we may have to first go to Purgatory - a sort of "waiting room" for Heaven; we may have to stay there until all our sins are erased, by the passage of time or through the prayers/good works of others. But if we are not sincere in our profession of faith or if we still reject God, we will be sent to Hell. We believe there is no getting out of Hell once one goes there. I will confirm all this and get back to you.
Like your religion, my faith is beautiful. But it is my feeling that human beings twist so many faiths to fit their own purposes.
Thanks again for being open to this discussion.
