First off.. in all truth and honestly, they are all good names; masha'Allah, but we can only choose one. I like "Quwaa" b/c it sounds "cool," and I like what it stands for.. plus there's my hidden agenda of already having our webpage worked out in my mind, and Quwaa fits perfectly. lol :) But I recently concidered "Ribat."
Prophet Muhammad said, 'Shall I tell you about actions with which Allah forgives sins and raises a persons rank? Performing ablution in unfavourable conditions, the man's steps he takes to the mosque and is awaiting prayer after prayer, for this is the ribat, this is the ribat, this is the ribat.'
Prophet Muhammad said, 'A day of Ribat in the path of God, is better
than this life and all that is in it'
So who can say they don't want this? But is it the best name for a qabeelah? Allahu-Alim. Then you have the other names of Noor, Haqq, Iqra... well maybe not Iqra. LOL! Doesn't that mean "read?" Or am I confusing it with something else? Needless to say, there was some tough competition, but I must stand by my favorite.. Banu Cool Khalil. lol j/k Banu Quwaa has my vote. Allahu-Alim why.. maybe I'm just remembering my old He-Man action figures when he would say, "I have the power," then transform his dog into like a tricerotops or something. Cool stuff. lol Salaamz
P.S.: My previous post was not meant to be offensive. So I apologize if it was.

as salam `alykum wa raHmat ALLAHi wa barakatuhu wa nuruhu !
FINALLY!! ALMAGHRIB IN SOCAL !!! ALLAHU AKBAR !!!!!!!!
alHamdollilah !! can you please send out an email with the conference call information for the volunteers??
and insha'Allah please put me down for the "serious volunteers" list...
voting afterthought - doesn't banu an-noor, banu al haqq, etc mean sons of Allah's (swt) name?? (similiar to banu israel meaning children of israel) shouldn't we remove those names from the choices?
وَقَالَتِ الْيَهُودُ عُزَيْرٌ ابْنُ اللّهِ وَقَالَتْ النَّصَارَى الْمَسِيحُ ابْنُ اللّهِ ذَلِكَ قَوْلُهُم بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ يُضَاهِؤُونَ قَوْلَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ مِن قَبْلُ قَاتَلَهُمُ اللّهُ أَنَّى يُؤْفَكُونَ
"The Jews say Ezra is the son of Allah, while the Christians (who follow Paul) say the Messiah is the son of Allah. Such are their assertions, by which they imitate those who disbelieved before. Allah fights them! How perverted are they!" (Qur'an 9:30)
clarification needed please...
your sister in the struggle,

Asalamualakum wa Rahmatullah...
Sorry for not being active on these things, but I vote...
01-22-2006, 02:04 PM
Asalamualakum wa Rahmatullah..
Nevermind I agree with Sister on not being misunderstood as the names of Allah...
I vote ( although Banu al-Bruin would be nice)........Banu Quwaa
01-22-2006, 03:15 PM
I was going to change the name to Banu Noor and Banu Haqq if those names won. JAZAKA ALLAH KHAIR, for your concern. It is a very valid point.
01-23-2006, 01:55 AM
assalamu `alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakathu,
Can some of them be translated? I want to make sure of all the different meanings first, and I asked 4-5 people about different words and got different answers. Jazakum Allahu khayran!
Banu Quwaa *Children of Strength*
Banu Wahd *Children of One?*
Banu Ehsan *Children of Excellence/Children Who Worship Allah swt as if they saw Him?*
Banu Noor *Children of Light*
Banu Haqq *Children of Truth*
Banu Qanitoon *Children of Obedience/Humility*
Banu Tawakkul *Children Who Trust in Allah swt?*
Banu Iqra *Children of the Word*
Banu Muhajireen *Children Who Travel?*

Qabeelat Quwaa | AlMaghrib Socal has finally arrived.
01-23-2006, 09:45 PM
not so fast, as the rules state the top three will be picked then voted on during this weeks conference calls, INSHA ALLAH. Banu haqq and Banu Ribat are tied. Since sister Sawila entered both of the entries she will have to choose which one she wishs to enter in the next round. If she is not able to make the call tomorrow night or does not state her choice here on the forums, then I, as the Amir, will make have to choose for her.
By the way we will be Banu, not qabeelat, but INSHA ALLAH soon.

my bad.. :)
can you please send out an email via the yahoo groups with the conference call information insha'Allah?
01-24-2006, 05:15 AM
Incase no one got the conference call info via yahoo groups; today is your lucky day. The Conference number: 1-641-696-6600 and the password is... well Allahu-Alim how private that is; so e-mail me for it insha'Allah. firstname.lastname@example.org So now with this new found info, invite your friends, family, random people, whomever, and see you on the call insha'Allah. Salaamz

AsSalamu'Alaikum wa RahmatulLahi wa Barakatuhu...
Subhan'Allah. What a crazy position to be in. So it's now between Banu Haqq and Banu Ribat, huh. Hmmm. Any suggestions? Insha'Allah I'll give my answer on the call tonight.
