 Roadmap to Paradise
          by brother Nur
Take Adam and Eve avenue until you come to the intersection of Habil
(Abel) road, and Qabil (Cain) street; merge right on Habil (Abel)
and continue for the next twenty miles till you come to Noah's
Ferry.

Take the ferry to Safety Land, ignore the majority of other travel
agencies' directions, and arrive at Abraham's Super Highway also
known as High way One God Only (1).

Follow Abraham but avoid the exit of Sodom and Gomorrah townships
until you get to Moses lane but pass Gold and Greed bridges and take
it to Jesus' Mercy road. Here you will encounter a lot of confusion,
streets are not well marked, and many peddlers along the road are
giving away maps with conflicting directions to travelers. The
Romans have renamed Pagans' path as Jesus' mercy road.

If you are not sure about the authenticity of Jesus' mercy road,
review your map. See if Jesus' mercy path is a continuation of
Abraham's Super Highway. If it is a continuation you are fine, but
still proceed with caution. If you have diverged, make a U-turn and
go back to Abraham's high way (1) and re-try again.

Continue on True Jesus' road, if you do not see the following signs
along the path, you should stop and review your map again. Maps for
this path have been tampered with, we recommend the Barnabas edition
street map to get to the Unity of God congregation, Immaculate
conception corner, and Love thy neighbor community center.

Avoid to show the Roman Traffic police your Barnabas street map, it
is banned, they will confiscate it and you will be forced to use the
only authorized official map - the Paul street map which was drawn
to direct the motorists to Rome. For that reason there is a lot of
lost traffic on this road. On the other hand True Jesus road is
found on the Barnabas street map, but only few people have access to
this map. Keep on Jesus' Mercy road until you find Muhammad's
sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam Sunnah Expressway.

Stay on this expressway and do not be lured to rest areas along the
expressway. Beware of the highway robbers, by insuring your vehicle
with Dhikr security systems. All vehicles secured with Dhikr
Security Systems will be protected from assaults by robbers (Satan).

Make sure that you have enough fuel. The highest grade fuel for this
long and tiring trip is the Taqwa grade fuel. Make sure you demand
this brand when you stop for refueling. Lighten the load on your
vehicle, carry only the most important items for this trip: two
meters of white cloth, good deeds and prayers of your kids is all
you need. Excess weight is allowed only if it is more of the above.
Other items will only slow you down or cause you to loose sight of
where you are heading, and you risk losing the coverage of Dhikr
Security systems, thereby becoming an easy target for the Robbers.

You need to check your vehicles safety features periodically by
reading your vehicles manual - the Holy Quran. Your steering wheel
must be calibrated by the Sunnah Calibration method, batteries must
be charged with Iman, the engine needs to be tuned up with Ikhlas
and your tires must be properly inflated with Ihsan. Most important
of all, you must test the entire vehicle with the tawheed check
list.

It does not matter if most parts of your vehicle are performing
right, if a single part in your vehicle does not perform according
to specifications of Tawheed (its conditions) your vehicle will
break down and again the robbers will rob you of what is left. The
overall performance of your vehicle depends on the performance of
the weakest part in your vehicle, so routinely check these weak
points, they may be detrimental to your trip.

There are many milestones on Muhammad's road, and these milestones
will assure you that you are on the right track. Do not worry that
there are not any people on this road; just because you are alone on
this road do not think that you are driving the wrong way on a one
way street. Loving Allah more than anything else, loving the Prophet
Muhammad sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam and his companions, who
supported him when he was oppressed, following all his teachings,
responding with patience and acceptance to lack of worldly goods,
hunger, loss of family members are but some of the milestones and
glad tidings that you are on the right track.

Also this road will be paved with pain, hard work, struggle with
yourself and others and Iblis, the Robber, and all things that are
not appealing to the soul. Never lay your guard, this trip is not
over until it is over. Keep dhikr your guard, good deeds your
luggage and do not lose to focus on where you are going, so you may
endure the pain of this trip. When you finally arrive to your
destination, Al-Jannah, you will forget all the pain.
