1- "Angles in Islam between myth and reality" Dr. KHALED LAOUBI
Angels are the creatures of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala. Believing in Angels is one the six pillars of faith in Islam. It is an obligatory for all true believers. However, in today’s Islamic world, there have been confusing and misunderstanding of the Angels world due to misleading Israeli and mythology’s stories. Therefore, the objective of this present work is to try to clarify the world of Angels in Islam based on Quran, Hadiths sahih and Tafsir and to answer these following questions:
- What are the Angels?
- What are the types of the Angels?
- What are their functions?
- Angels between fake and real stories!?
- Can we see the Angels and what are our relation with them?
- How do we attract Angels? How do we repel Angels?
- Believing in Angels, is it essential?
2- "Halal and Haram in Islam and some facts that we have to face in our daily life in Japan" Dr. MOHAMMED MAFIZUL ISLAM
It is essential for every Muslim to clearly know about Halal and Haram. It is also compulsory to imply this in our own life, ask our family and others to enjoin doing so. Allah says in Quran ‘’And eat of the lawful (Halal) and good things that Allah has given you and keep your duty to Allah’’.
Living in a Non-Muslim country, it is a great challenge for us to refrain from Haram, but it is not impossible. There is halal and haram in food as well it should be followed when we do any work, business, transaction, contract etc., that is in our everyday life. I want to focus on the basic principal of Halal and Haram in light of Quran and Hadith as well as the common things that should be concerned during your daily life in Japan.
Using my own experience, I shall focus on some issues that we can follow to save ourselves from Haram. Also there are some common mistakes that we usually make; I like to remind myself and all of you about these.
