    Muslims to face Tokyo instead of Mecca in prayer!!!

    [In the Second World War]. Once, as the time for the Muslim festival of the 'Id drew near, propaganda from Tokyo began to concentrate on an 'Id prayer that was going to be held in Singapore, then under Japanese occupation. It would be an historic occasion, it was announced, and it's effect would be felt throughout the Muslim world. This sudden emphasis on the prayer abruptly stopped after a few days.

    The mystery was solved when a Japanese prisoner was taken in a skirmish and interrogated. He said that Tojo, the head of the Japanese government, was planning to take on the role of the greatest Muslim reformer of modern times. He had a scheme to adjust the teachings of Islam to the requirements of the modern age. It had therefore become necessary, according to him, that the Muslims, instead of facing Makka in prayer, should start facing Tokyo, which would become the future centre of Islam under Tojo. The Muslims refused to accept this reorientation of Islam, and so the whole project was dropped. As a result, there was no 'Id prayer allowed in Singapore that year.

    Tojo had realised the importance of Islam and he wanted to use it as a means to further his imperialistic designs, but the he was unsuccessful. ...

    I just wanted say, isn't this how non-muslims in our time are trying so hard to reform our religion by condemning the Mujahideen, our sisters, etc.?

    Both Halal & Haram r evident but between them r doubtful things, most ppl have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from suspicious things saves his religion & honor, & whoever indulges in suspicious things indulges in Haram.
