Osama Bin Ladin
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Asalaam wa'alaikum Brother,
I have a question for you, I have read an article which I will forward to you about Osma Bin laden,could you please tell me all that you know about this man and if the info. in the article is correct,because I have seen a picture of bin laden and frankly it seems like his face radiates Noor, if you have any info. on what it is that he represents exactly. An answer would be most appreciated.

Osama Bin Ladin
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and who-ever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The truth is brother, we only know about Osama bin Ladin what we have heard or read in the popular press. We are not in a position to judge him, his intentions, his actions, and what he represents. Allah Alone is the Judge over everything, and on an Inevitable Day, Allah will Judge with Justice between all His slaves. Allah will not ask us about Osama bin Ladin on the Day of Judgment, nor will He ask Osama bin Ladin about us. Thus our concern should be with our deeds and what have we done to please our Lord and Creator.
Allah Alone Knows Best.
May Allah guide you and us all to the Straight Path of Islam.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
