Abi Bakra, Allah be pleased with him, narrates about Prophet Muhammad, pbuh): He said:

Your blood, your goods and your honor are as much protected and safe (forever) as is this day (of Arafa) in this month (of Hajj). Be aware and those of you who are here (today) should pass this on to those who are not here.

(Sahih of Imam Bukhari)

Dear Muslims: asalamu alaikum

What do these men have in common?
  1. Suhail Webb

  2. Tarek Ramadan

  3. Hamza Yusuf

  4. Zaid Shakir

  5. Syed Sayeed

  6. Nihad Awad.

Answer: They condemn the Islamic State [IS] as un-Islamic and anti-Islamic.

What else do they have in common?
  1. They do not question the legitimacy of Israel and its right to exist.

  2. They did not condemn or oppose the occupation of Afghanistan.

  3. They did not condemn or oppose the invasion of Iraq.

  4. They did not condemn or oppose the show trial and execution of President Saddam Hussain.

  5. They did not support the defense of Gaza by Hamas.

  6. They did not oppose or condemn General Musharraf's assault on the Red Mosque and the Women's Seminary Jamia Hafsa in Pakistan.

  7. They did not condemn or oppose the displacement of the ENTIRE population of Swat and now North Waziristan in Pakistan by US backed generals.

  8. They are silent about the drone attacks on Pakistani villages.

  9. They did not condemn or oppose the unjust imprisonment of Imam Jamil, the Blind Shaykh, Dr. Aafia, Tarek Mehanna, Lynne Stewart, Ahmed Abdel Sattar, Masoud Khan, Ziyad Yaghi, Dr. Kifah Jayyousi, Dr. Ali Timimi and all other Islamic political prisoners.

  10. Following President Obama's lead, they have supported the homosexual movement directly or indirectly, in some cases remaining vague in others giving outright support to the "gay." lobby

  11. Their silence about police brutality against poor and black people in cities across America is deafening.

Overall it is fair to say that these individuals are insensitive to the suffering of the Ummah both within America and globally.

They have been busy trying to fulfill the Zionist, Imperialist agenda for an "American Islam" or what they like to call "Moderate Islam."

What Cilantro Can Do For You

Cilantro is a phenomenal herb that is packed with vitamins A, K, & C, minerals such as iron, calcium, and magnesium, and has more antioxidants than most fruits or vegetables. Cilantro is a remarkable heavy-metal detoxifier and is able to remove mercury and aluminum from where it is stored in the adipose (fat) tissues. Cilantro is also able to mobilize mercury rapidly from the brain and central nervous system by separating it from the fat tissue and moving into the blood & lymph where when combined with a blue green algae such as spirulina it can be removed safely and effectively from the body. Cilantro & blue green algae used together is a winning combination and a natural miracle that has given tremendous relief to those suffering from mercury poisoning & toxicity. Cilantro also contains an anti-bacterial compound called dodecenal which has the ability to kill salmonella bacteria and prevent salmonella poisoning. Cilantro is highly beneficial for Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Arthritis, Diabetes, Viral and Bacterial Infections, Hepatitis, Colitis, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders, Autism, Tourette Syndrome, Infertility, and Bell's Palsy. Cilantro is also very helpful with autoimmune disorders such as Fibromyalgia, Addison's Disease, Guillain-Barre syndrome, IBS, Multiple Sclerosis, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Cilantro is known to support the stomach, spleen, adrenals, thyroid, pancreas, bladder, and lungs. It is also highly beneficial in reducing LDL (bad) cholesterol and raising HDL (good) cholesterol. Cilantro is often juiced with celery and apples for a medicinal and healing drink. Juicing cilantro is one of the most effective ways to get at least one bunch or more of cilantro in you a day. Cilantro can also be added to smoothies, salsas, salads, guacamole, soups, pesto, tomatoes, beans, and veggie dishes. If the green flavor of cilantro does not appeal to you, yet you still want to receive its health benefits, consider using cilantro tincture or extract which can be found online or at your local health food store.

How Shi'ism Began
The Murder of Usman, r.a., Compiler of al- Qur'an; Greatest Sahabi [except 2]. Beloved of Muhammad, pbuh.

by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

On Muharram 1, hijri year 24, the Companions of the Prophet, pbuh, gave the oath of allegiance [baiya] to Usman ibn Affan, r.a.

On Zilhijja 18, hijri year 36, he was murdered.

His 12 years as Caliph were years of victory for Islam when the armies of mujahideen reached as far west as Morocco and as far east as central Asia [Tabaristan etc].

Led by his commander for the navy, Muawiyya, r.a., the Muslims, defeated the combined navies of Christendom in one day. It is reported that the ocean ran red with the blood of the European army.

The Prophet, pbuh, saw his piety and commitment to the faith and arranged the marriage of his daughter, Ruqayya, r.a. with Usman, r.a..

When the chiefs of Makka oppressed the Muslims, Usman,r.a., and Ruqayya, r.a., did the first hijra in the history of Islam to Ethiopia in Africa thus creating the Islamic link with Africa. It was a very tough journey and on the way Ruqayya, r.a., had a miscarriage. Her health problems continued after they returned from Ethiopia. He was always there for her, caring and compassionate.

After Ruqayya, r.a., died, the Prophet, pbuh, arranged the marriage of his second daughter, Umm Kulthum, r.a., with Usman. She too was in bad health and years later she passed away. The Prophet, pbuh, said if he had another daughter, he would have married her too to Usman, r.a., because of Usman,s, r.a., compassion and love. [Fatima, r.a., the third daughter, was already married to Ali, r.a.]

Why were the shias able to murder Usman, r.a.?

Three important reasons are available in the authentic early histories:
  1. The Islamic armies were stretched out hundreds of miles away from Medina.

  2. Many prominent Muslims, including Ayesha, r.a., had gone for Hajj.

  3. There was a campaign of rumor mongering and slandering against Usman, r,a., Sahaba, r.a., had often differed with each other but never fought each other. They thought the new controversies were normal in an open society and NEVER thought that anyone with a Muslim name would try to kill the blessed Caliph who had the love of the Prophet, pbuh, as part of his credibility.

When the shias realized there was no armed force to defend Medina, they entered the city and besieged the mosque and the home of Usman, r.a. The Shias numbered about 6000, including groups from Egypt parts of Iraq. From the people of Madina, 600 people came forth to defend of Caliph. He told them NOT to fight. He said he did not want Muslim blood to be shed for his sake.

When the rebels closed in on him, he tried to dialogue with them. He told them that they did not have the right to remove as Calipn because they had not made him the Caliph. When they pressed into the mosque and his home, he saw that they were intent on killing him. He told them that a Muslim can only be killed for three reasons and unproven accusations of misrule were not one of them.

Finally,on Friday, while he was continuing his fasting from previous days, a group of the Shias leapt on him and killed him while he was reading the Qur'an he had compiled. A slave he had freed, fought the attackers and gave his life. Nailah, the wife of Usman, r,a,, put up her hand to stop the sword blow coming down on him, Her fingers were cut off.

There was great suspicion at that time that Ali, r.a., was behind the shia attack but he vehemently and repeatedly denied any involvement. Among the assailants was Ali's step son. Another man became famous as commander of Ali's army, named Ashtar, was among the assailants.
Suspicions were raised by the killers declaring Ali, r.a., as the next Caliph.

Nailah cried out to the Muslim Ummah that could they allow such a dastardly crime to be committed. She cried out to Muawiyyah, r.a,, and showed him her fingers which had been cut off. The fingers were hung on the gateway to the central mosque in Damascus. Thousands of Syrians rallied to Muawiyya, r.a., for the cause of Usman, r.a.

Ayesha, r.a., who was in Makkah for the Hajj called for the murderers to be punished. An army gathered around her. Thus came about the wars between Muslims which followed.

As Usman, r.a., had told his assailants, if you kill me, you will never be able to pray togethert.

President of Muslim Association of Japan, Also An Expert In Political Science And Shari'ah, Dr. Hasan Ko Nakata, Phd. Joined Dawlah Islamiyyah (IS)

Professor Dr. Hasan Ko Nakata, Phd. an expert in Political Science and Shari'ah was one of 9 Japanese nationals who reportedly joined Dawlah Islamiyyah (IS).

Hasan Ko Nakata, who was the President of the Muslim Association of Japan reverted to Islam in his third year at the faculty of Islamic Studies at Tokyo University. Before that, he was very acquainted with the Christian religion. It was no surprise that during his earlier years at Tokyo University, he joined the Bible study group. It was there where he got familiar with the studies of Comparative Religion

 Professor Dr. Hasan Ko Nakata, Phd

He studied the subject of Comparative Religion in Christianity, Judaism, Shinto, Buddhism and Islam. When weighing and comparing for about a year he felt that the teaching of Islam is the most comprehensive. "I found that it was Islam which is the most comprehensive, rational and consistent system of life, and finally by Allah SWT's mercy I decided to embrace Islam," he said. He thus added the name "Hassan" in front of his original name. He had looked into the tariqat of Naqshabandiyah and Syaziliah. "However, I was not a good student," he said.

After getting his degree, Hassan wanted to explore into Islam deeper. But there had not been any master program on Islamic Studies in Japanese Universities. It was also difficult to get Islamic books in Japanese language. Fortunately, not long after that, Tokyo University opened a master program on Islamic Studies. ''I became the first and the last Muslim student in the field of Islamic Studies at Tokyo University for 25 years,'' said this Proffesor.

After finishing his master at Tokyo University, he continued his doctorate study at Cairo University. His dissertation was on the Political Thinking of Ibn Taymiyah (al-Fikratu al-Siyasatu 'inda Ibni Taymiya). He explained in that dissertation the uniqueness of the political thinking of Ibnu Taymiyah in the history of political thinking and his influence on the contemporary political movement, which includes Hizbut Tahrir. After passing his doctorate, Hassan became a researcher at the Japanese Embassy in Saudi Arabia (1992-1995). No wonder he could speak Arabic fluently.

His activities in da'wah in the Country of Sakura can be classified as prominent. The characteristic of the Japanese people which is indifferent towards religions drove him to find a way so as to be able to propagate Islam. Moreover, there were very few dai'e's with quality.

The only best way to spread Islam in Japan, according to him, is through the personal influence of the workers of da'wah who have a broad and deep knowledge about Islam with a good personality, as well as an understanding of the Japanese culture.

He, together with the Japanese Muslim who are the minority, conducted various efforts, which included translating a number of classical books such as "Tafsir al-Jalalain", "al-Siyasah al-Syar'iyyah of Ibn Taimiyyah" and "Zad al-Mustaqni' al-Hujawi al-Hanbali", as well as publishing monthly magazines that were disseminated for free to all Japanese Muslims and throughout the world as an information and communication media.

Hasan Ko Nakata had served as the President of the Muslim Association of Japan while teaching Islamic Studies at Doshisha University, Kyoto. A majority of his students were in fact Christian. Being the principal for four years at Doshisha, Hassan managed to lure four of his students, who were originally atheist, to convert to Islam.

His name stood out in Indonesia when there was an International Khalifah Conference organized by Hizbut Tahrir at the Utama Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, Jakarta, August 2007. He was one of the speakers of the akbar activities which struck the world at that time. Before that, not many Muslims of Indonesia knew of a Japanese intellectual whose attention on the da'wah of Islam is so great.

Earlier, Hasan believed in the conception of Hizbut Tahrir in terms of the establishment of the caliphate, however with the passing of time and review of thoughts, Hassan Ko Nakata changed.

The impossibility of the establishment of the caliphate with only da'wah and thoughts without the true jihad (Qital) just like Hizbut Tahrir became the main reason for Hasan Ko Nakata to make hijrah to Darul Islam. Allahu Akbar!!!

Malala with her father and mother worked Closely with the CIA to smear the Taliban's moral Stance.


First Photo shows Richard Holbrooke sitting with Malala's father [right] and mother [center] Tagged at the back in suit in tie "a CIA operative" and on right Brigadier Martin Jones from the US military.
Second photo shows Richard Holbrook [left], next to him Malala's mother, next to her Malala's father and then Malala herself.

The Pakistani government claimed Malala was shot by the Taliban IN THE FACE but there is no mark on her face after the shooting. No inquiry was held. The alleged shooting took place in a high security area controlled by the Pakistani army.

Malala became the tool of worldwide propaganda against the armed Islamic movement. She was invited to the White House to meet President Obama. She was also taken to Nigeria to support the Nigerian army's claim that Boko Haram had abducted school girls.

Now she has been awarded the Nobel prize with the claim that she is the pioneer of women's education in Pakistan. [There are 53,000 schools for girls in Pakistan...editor]

Curfew Imposed in Khyber: Pakistani Jet fighters Attack Islamics. Ground operation Launched.

In the Akakhel area of Khyber, on October 16 Pakistani jet fighters supplied by the US attacked the Lashkare Islam group loosely linked to Pakistani Taliban. The bombing went on all day and killed 21 people alleged to be "militants."

On October 17, Pakistani ground units led by artillery and tanks attacked Islamic villages in the Bara area of Khyber killing 9 "suspected" Islamic militants and injuring 10. The army has taken measures to crush civilian support for the mujahideen, Here is how Dawn reports it:

"Curfew has been imposed in the area and people are not allowed to either enter or leave Bara. Security forces have also blocked all routes leading to Bara and have surrounded its Malikdinkhel, Akakhel and Sipah areas." In retaliation, there was a bomb attack on a militia set up by the Pakistani military in which 5 militia tribals were killed and 4 injured.

An Impressive Effort to Alleviate Muslim Poverty in Gujarat, India
Asghar Vasanwala

Dear friends,
I am so grateful to you all especially those who responded to my Qurbani appeal and pledged goat sacrifices this Eid-ul-Adha. We sacrificed 155 goats and distributed its meat among poor Muslims living in slums. Please view following pictures of meat distribution in various villages in Panchmahals District, Gujarat.

Story of Muslim poverty is the same everywhere. Politician and media boast about Shining Gujarat but no shining rays fall on these poor Muslims. Many Muslims leaders wear Islamic attire and boast they know the way to heaven but do nothing uplifting these poor. It is a shame that rich Muslims do not pay any attention. Mullahs do not emphasize on education, jobs, business, and poverty in Jumma Khutba and in other gatherings. They make Dua and tasbeeh/rosary as if it was enough for changing condition on ground that Allah will come down and do it for them. Rising prices, lower wages, lack of education, discrimination, etc. have made it worst for these poor Muslims.


Please note that as such Muslims insists on keeping women secluded and imposing hijab etc. however when there is help or charity receiving program they push women forward; men feel too proud standing in charity line. You can see in following pictures almost all waiting in line, are women.

Past and present Governments have totally failed advancing Muslims the way they advanced Dalit class. Muslims are given bad names so that public feel Muslims deserve it and not feel any guilt. With 16% of Indian population living in backward condition, India cannot become 1st rate country.

Courtesy Shaikh Hyder: Condition of Women in India said to be Worst in the World: Here a is a sample.

Woman says she was attacked at a police station in Uttar Pradesh after going there to seek her husband's release

An Indian woman has said she was gang-raped by four officers at a police station, the latest in a string of sex attacks in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The woman said she was attacked when she went to the station overnight on Monday in the Hamirpur district to seek her husband's release.

"At 11.30pm when there was no one in the room the sub-inspector took me to his room and raped me inside the police station," the woman told CNN-IBN. She filed a complaint with a senior officer on Wednesday over the attack, which allegedly occurred when she refused to pay a bribe to secure the release of her husband. Virendra Kumar Shekhar, a police official from Hamirpur, said: "The procedure will be followed. The victim has filed a complaint and the guilty will be arrested soon."

Sub-inspector Balbir Singh said a criminal case had been lodged against four officers from the station.

The case is the latest in a string of rapes and murders in Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state, where the chief minister, Akhilesh Yadav, is under growing political pressure over his handling of law and order.

Last month, two girls, aged 12 and 14, were gang-raped and lynched in their village. They were attacked after going into a field to relieve themselves at night because they did not have a lavatory at home.

Their families refused to cut the bodies down from the tree for hours in protest, saying police had failed to take action against the attackers because the girls were from a low caste.

The prime minister, Narendra Modi, , in his first comments on the issue since the hanging of the girls sparked public outrage, on Wednesday urged all politicians to work together to protect women. Modi warned politicians against "politicising rape", saying they were "playing with the dignity of women" in his first speech to parliament since sweeping to power at last month's election.

India brought in tougher laws last year against sexual offenders after the fatal gang-rape of a student in New Delhi in December 2012, but they have failed to stem the tide of violence against women.

Also on Wednesday, a 45-year-old woman was found hanging from a tree in Uttar Pradesh. Her family said she had been raped and murdered. A police officer said five men were being questioned over the incident, which occurred several kilometres from her home in Bahraich district. "They [her husband and son] have alleged that the woman, before being strung up from the tree, was raped and murdered by these men," the district superintendent Happy Guptan told AFP.

America's Bombing Campaign against Islamic State [IS}. 1400 Bombs Dropped

"As of Thursday [October 16] the U.S. had launched nearly 300 airstrikes in Iraq and nearly 200 in Syria, and allies had tallied fewer than 100, according to Central Command. Those figures don't capture the full scope of the effort because many airstrikes launch multiple bombs on multiple targets. Central Command said that as of Wednesday, [October 15]U.S. and partner-nation air forces had dropped nearly 1,400 munitions." [AP and]

US Bombing challenged by al-Zawahiri's Initiative to Support Islamic State [IS]
by Richard Spencer [Middle East Correspondent]
[Courtesy British daily Telegraph of October 17, 2014]

[Please excuse the language used by the British paper ...NT editor]

Al-Qaeda's leading terror franchise has presented a new challenge to the American-led coalition in Syria and Iraq by calling on the group to back Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant despite the two groups' fierce rivalry.

The call by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is doubly significant because its leader is believed to have been appointed as "general manager" or chief operating officer and deputy to Al-Qaeda's overall head, Ayman al-Zawahiri.

In the past year, Zawahiri and the head of Isil, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, have clashed openly and the two groups have fought each other in Syria. But America's decision to bomb not only Isil in Iraq and Syria but also a group of Al-Qaeda fighters accused of planning an attack on the United States has drawn the two rival jihadi organisations closer together.

"We urge all Muslims to back their brethren, with their souls, money and tongues, against the crusaders," a statement released on Friday said. "We call on anyone who can wear down the Americans to strive to do so by military, economic or media means." The American decision to bomb an outpost of Al-Qaeda's official faction in the Syrian Civil War, Jabhat Al-Nusra, caused outrage in the rebel cause.

Many rebels were already angry that after refusing to intervene militarily on their side against the Assad regime, the US was nevertheless prepared to bomb Isil positions. The attack on Jabhat Al-Nusra, which had fought closely alongside other rebel factions, including pro-Western ones, was seen as an outright betrayal of the anti-Assad cause.

Now the United States is having difficulty finding rebels to train and arm in accordance with the broader plans outlined by President Barack Obama to support the "moderate" cause in the war.

On a recent visit to the region, Gen John Allen, the retired US army officer put in charge by President Obama, made contact with the rebels' political leadership recognised by the US and its western allies, but not the Free Syrian Army, its military wing. He said that recruiting the rebel army would not happen immediately and would require a "holistic approach". "At this point, there is not formal co-ordination with the FSA," he said.

His words cast fresh doubt on America's long-pledged commitment to bring about the downfall of the regime.Without support for secular and non-jihadi Islamist rebels, the battle for Syria has become increasingly one between the regime on the one hand and extremist groups like Isil and Jabhat Al-Nusra on the other.

Some more moderate rebels are holding out in the south, and in Idlib and Aleppo provinces in the north-west. But the rebels in Aleppo are all but surrounded by the regime, while continuing to have to fight Isil on their eastern front.

In a further development, the monitoring group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that Isil had been able to fly three Russian fighter jets captured from the regime. Though they have not been used in operations, the Observatory said the MiG jets were being flown with the help of defected Iraqi air force officers.

The United States said it had picked up no radar signs of the planes, but the Observatory said they were flying at low altitude to avoid detection by the regime.The world's attention has been focused on the Kurdish city of Kobane on the Syrian-Turkish border, where air strikes have helped the Kurdish YPG militia hold off an Isil advance.

But elsewhere, Isil forces have been strong in recent days. Kurdish advances in the north of Iraq seem to have halted, while Isil continues to make ground in Anbar province close to the capital Baghdad.

As for Syria, despite events in Kobane, the United States insist that it is of secondary importance to events in Iraq. If Jabhat Al-Nusra, which now plays a leading role in fighting the regime, including seizing territory on the border with Israeli-occupied Golan, joins forces with Isil, it will present a huge challenge to both the regime and American plans. Analysts said the new statement did not resolve the ideological issues dividing the two - Al-Qaeda still objects to Isil's declaration of a "Caliphate" with Baghdadi at its helm. But it specifically rejected declaring Isil non-Muslims or heretics, as many of its opponents do, saying they are "no such thing". Instead it insists they are "brothers". "We urge all mujahidin to set aside their differences and inter-factional fighting and move instead against the crusade targeting all," it said.

Sanaa (AFP) - Suspected Al-Qaeda militants have captured a town in southwest Yemen in a deadly attack seen as a countermove to advances by Shiite rebels sweeping across the strife-hit country.

Rival groups are seeking to exploit a power vacuum in impoverished Yemen, which has been in a political deadlock since the Huthi Shiite rebels took control of the capital Sanaa last month.

Al-Qaeda's Yemen-based franchise, considered by the United States to be the deadliest branch of the extremist network, has vowed to fight the rebels in defence of Sunni Muslims. Its militants stormed the town of Udain overnight, setting fire to the police headquarters and attacking the offices of the local government, a security official and local sources said Thursday.

Five policemen were reported dead. The offensive came just hours after Shiite rebels overran the provincial capital of Ibb located 20 kilometres (12.5 miles) to the east. Yemen, a key ally in US efforts to combat Al-Qaeda, has been wracked by political turmoil and sporadic violence since an uprising toppled strongman Ali Abdullah Saleh in 2012.

Al-Qaeda is active in several Yemeni provinces, mainly in the south and southeast, where repeated government military campaigns drove the network's militants out of key cities they once controlled.

The push into Udain appeared to be in retaliation for the Huthis' capture of Ibb, a local official said. Already in control of Sanaa and the strategic port city of Hudeida, the Shiite rebels on Wednesday appeared to have taken control, unopposed, of the Dhamar and Ibb provinces, security officials said. They have been taking advantage of the political crisis in Sanaa to seize significant areas, threatening the authority of the Sunni-led central government. The Huthis have kept up their advance despite the naming of a new prime minister on Monday by President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi in a bid to resolve the stalemate.

Steady rebel expansion -

The steady expansion of the Shiite rebels has increased the threat of an open confrontation with Al-Qaeda. Deadly fighting broke out Tuesday when the Huthis tried to expand out of the town of Rada in central Baida and clashed with Al-Qaeda militants.

Five rebels, six suspected Al-Qaeda militants and a civilian were killed during the fighting in Rada, a security official and tribal sources said Wednesday. Suspected Al-Qaeda militants executed a local Huthi chief, Khalil al-Riyami, who was apparently captured during clashes, local sources said. Al-Qaeda gunmen were also spotted in Ibb and Taez, the largest city in Yemen that lies further south. But a deal has been reached between the local government of Taez and representatives of the rebels who agreed not to enter the city, helping to avert potential confrontations, a local official said.

 Yemeni Shiite Houthi movement

The Huthis, who have long complained of marginalisation by Sanaa, were so far concentrated in the mostly Shiite northern highlands in otherwise Sunni-majority Yemen. Huthi militiamen stormed into Sanaa on September 21, easily seizing key government installations, and they now man checkpoints and run patrols across the capital in almost total absence of the security forces.

Al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for a powerful suicide bombing that killed 47 people at a gathering of Huthi supporters in Sanaa earlier this month.

An unknown assailant on a motorbike late on Wednesday hurled a grenade at a Huthi post in the capital, killing two people and wounding two others, rebels said.

November 30 'deadline' -

Attempting to seize the opportunity of weakening state authority, thousands of supporters of the separatist Southern Movement continued a sit-in they started Tuesday in the main city of the south, Aden, demanding renewed independence. "We have set a deadline of November 30 to be handed control of military and security institutions in the south," said Southern Movement activist Adib al-Issa. If this does not happened, he warned, "they will be seized by force". The south was independent between the end of British colonial rule in 1967 and its union with the north in 1990. A secession attempt four years later sparked a brief but bloody civil war that ended with northern forces occupying the region.

Muslimah writes about Facilities for Women migrating to the Islamic State [IS]; HIJRAH AND LIFE IN THE ISLAMIC STATE

If you're about to make Hijrah or you wants to get more idea about life in the Islamic State for sisters, then this is for you. I made it into a long writing and divided into few Sub Topics - which I hope can clear your doubts and answer some of your questions. This is based on my personal experience and may differ from others.


I will mainly discuss what I know and understand. As I always mention in my previous notes, I'll cover about my city - Tabqah and Raqqah as I'm not sure of any other provinces.
  1. If you have been diagnosed with any disease, let it be whether you're under treatment\medication or not, please do not forget to bring along all your documents and papers including your medication so you can further the treatment here, later.

  2. If you are currently suffering from any sort of severe symptoms, I would like to advice you to take a complete check-ups including scans if it's necessary - since it would be helpful.

    We do have lists of investigation procedure but my sincere advice would be to get it done before you travel.

  3. For chronic diseases such as renal disease (and you're on dialysis), I'm not sure about hemodialysis in local hospital as it has been always the main target — I would advice you to switch into peritoneal dialysis so you can get your treatment done at home.

  4. If you're on waiting list for cataract or any sort of minor surgery, make sure you get it done first and explain to your doctor that you're traveling to "world-third-country". This to make sure that your doctor is aware of the risk of infection and he/she will prescribes you with broad-spectrum antibiotics.

  5. For pregnant sisters, we have monthly ante-natal check-up such as echo, blood test and urine test. You can either book your ante-natal check up in clinic or in the hospital. You don't have to buy or bring your supplements or folic acid meds — it's available here.

  6. If you're a mother and your child is currently under vaccination — I'm sorry. Personally I never liked the idea of vaccination so I have no idea about it. Few months ago, we had 40 babies died due to vaccination that was given by the UN - just a reminder.

  7. The hospital runs as usual. The staffs are just as amazing as everywhere else. We have surgeons and other specialist too. As far I'm here, I have referred my Muhajirah friends for appendicectomy, tonsillectomy and thyroidectomy. All the OP went well.

  8. Cesarean is very common here. So don't worry regarding complicated pregnancy such as big babies or breech.

Conclusion : Al Hamdulillah - I can't brag they have the best health system, but it's not as as messed-up as many thinks about.

(This is from my personal experience. It may differ from other Muhajirah).

Syria, Kobani.

Huge Surprise for US/Kurdish Alliance after Killing 70 Islamic State Fighters

October 19: As we go to the press, the Islamic State [IS] is in control of more than half of the border city of Ain al-Arab [known as Kobani to the Kurds]. Not only are the Islamic fighters deep in the city, but are firing mortar shells at the border crossing into Turkey from where supplies for the ypg [Communist Kurds] have been coming in. Some shells landed in Turkey. [Turkey has admitted that those Kurds who fled to Turkey have the right to back to Kobani, obviously to fight.].

During the week under review, October 12 to 19, the US air armada carried out the most ferocious bombing of IS targers which has can only be compared to "Shock and Awe" against President Saddam Hussain and Tora Bora against Shaykh Osama bin Laden.

Bombing was most severe on October 14 with 21 air strikes with bombs so big that the explosions showed up as mushroom clouds. The Islamic casualties were heavy, 70 killed. The bodies have been taken to a nearby town.

The bombing provided cover for support to be brought in to the Kurdish Communists but, more seriously, THREE BRIGADES of FSA fighters [trained in Jordan and Saudi Arabia by the Americans] were brought into the defense of Kobani. [FSA are secularized Syrians supporting the US.]

[The three brigades were mentioned only in passing by the BBC and various news services.]

After October 12, the Islamic fighters seem to have understood the US pattern of bombing. They would withdraw and the US would bomb and bomb, plastering those areas of Kobani were IS was supposed to be entrenched. The next day the IS would re-emerge and continue their house by house advance. At one point it appeared that the Kurds and the bombing were forcing IS to retreat from the entire city.

Not only IS refused to withdraw from the city but evaded US bombing cleverly enough to bring in its own reinforcements from Raqqa 60 miles away. Islamic fighters and even their families wanted to go in and fight the Communists. OAP reports that a 15 year old insisted on going with his father and was killed in the bombing.


Baghdad Surrounded from three sides as IS advances: Kurdish forces blocked.

According to US news sources and wire services, the Islamic State forces have gradually created a cordon around Baghdad. Shia forces armed by the US and militias armed by Iran are going out of Baghdad to fight the Islamic forces. At one point the Shia militia forced ISIS who had crossed the river to retreat, They and the Sunni population went with them and then blew up the bridge. [Detailed reporting by Ben Wedeman on CNN on October 17.]

On Ocober 18, Iraqi military tried to advance on Fallujah but was beaten back. In the north too where Peshmarga had taken the border crossing of Rabia, ISIS has fought the Kurds to a stand still.

IS is softening up Baghdad with martyrdom operators and car bombs with ongoing casualties. American jet bombers with help from Saudi, UAE and Bahraini jets are bombing advancing IS units, forcing them to spread out and advance in scattered formations.

Scholar, teacher: Stripped Naked, Forced to Desecrate the Qur'an. Horrific Injustice. Why Was Aafia Siddique's Appeal Withdrawn?
by Sis. Karin Friedemann [Boston]

"With the attention and celebration that greeted the selection of Pakistan's Malala Yousafzai and India's Kailash Satyarthi for the world's most coveted peace prize, one would think that the American establishment has a special regard for young, accomplished (and committed) Muslim women. An honest review of the record would show that quite the opposite is true," writes Mauri Saalakhan of the Peace and Justice Foundation. "While Malala Yousafzai is being celebrated for her accomplishments and yet unfulfilled future potential, Aafia Siddique is wasting away in a maximum security prison cell on a military base in the land of 'liberty and justice for all!'"

On October 9, 2014, Dr. Aafia Siddique's family issued an announcement that US District Judge Richard Berman, without any warning, had ordered the case closed for the appeal of her conviction.

Aafia's sister, Dr. Fowzia Siddiqui told Al-Jazeera that she is convinced that "coercion tactics" were used to make her withdraw her appeal because according to their last communication, Aafia said she was "determined to fight her case."

 Dr. Aafia Siddique's

Aafia, who is being held in solitary confinement, has not been allowedphone calls to her family in Pakistan since initiating her appeal.

"We have not been allowed [in-person contact] with her at any time. There is a prison rule that she gets to speak to family for 300 minutes per month - as long as the family pays for the call. We did get that order, and the only time that was implemented was when there were worldwide demonstrations - at those times there were calls. But since filing the appeal they have kept Aafia completely incommunicado," stated her sister.

"This is not Aafia's decision. I know because my last conversation with her was that she was visited [in her dreams] by our prophet Muhammad, saw, and he was pleased with my efforts and the appeal. She said it is for this reason I consent,and if we don't connect again DO NOT believe any statement to the contrary on my behalf."

"Since then we have had absolutely no contact with her. I know she did not withdraw of her own free will. She has been coerced. God knows how much torture [she's been forced to endure], complete solitary and manipulations.... It horrifies me to even think about what she has been forced to go through."

Previous reports about her treatment at Carswell included stripping her naked and forcing her to walk on the Quran in order to be allowed to attend hearings - one reason she has held back from the appeal until receiving spiritual permission. Therefore it makes no sense that Aafia would withdraw her appeal now. She has nothing to lose by appealing.

Reuters reports that Aafia wrote a statement, "I refuse to participate in this system of total injustice that has punished and tortured me repeatedly, and continues to do so, without my having committed a crime." She wrote that she wanted to be sent home to Pakistan through diplomacy, not through the legal system.

The openly hostile judge, the very same judge who sentenced her in early 2010, is reported to have ordered the case closed. Even if the appeal had continued, he likely would have ruled against her, he said. The Nation, Pakistan, reported that US District Judge Richard Berman stated he had "allowed" Dr. Aafia Siddiqui to withdraw what could be the last appeal of her conviction on charges of attempted murder. Berman claimed that Siddiqui, who is serving an 86-year sentence in a prison medical centre in Texas, had 'clearly and unequivocally' stated her intent to end the appeal.

According to Salman Khan of the Free Aafia Movement, the ruling came as a shock as they had hoped that the application for a retrial would receive a fair judgment. Despite vehement attempts to protest his inclusion, he said they were unable to have him removed from proceedings.

"Just to reopen the trial costs $150,000, and then to remove him it would have cost us a further $100,000," Khan said.

In 2003, Aafia was wanted by the FBI for questioning for possible ties to al Qaeda and was detained by Pakistani authorities. This tiny woman was named as one of the FBI's most wanted "terrorists." She was handed over to US agents and held incommunicado in Afghanistan for five years.

Siddiqui was never charged with links to terrorism. The FBI agents, US soldiers and interpreters said that as they were about to interrogate her at an Afghan police compound in Ghazni, Afghanistan, she supposedly grabbed a rifle and began shooting at them. None of them were wounded, but she was shot in the abdomen when they "returned fire." At her trial, Aafia's lawyer argued that there was no evidence the rifle had been fired. No bullets, shell casings or bullet debris were recovered.

Before the US brought her captive to the US, Siddiqui's family says Aafia was raped and tortured at the US military's Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. Aafia has become a popular figure in her home country of Pakistan, which has influenced a wide variety of Islamic fighting groups to attempt to win her release. It is hard to think of any other woman in the world who is so deeply loved by millions of people around the world.

In 2011, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan took a Swiss couple hostage and said they could be freed if Siddiqui were released. In Afghanistan, the Taliban asked for her release as part of a deal to free US Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl. ISIS proposed swapping American journalist James Foley for her, but the US refused and allowed his execution.

Jamaat al-Muslimeen Activity in Delaware: 8 Page document given to 76 Muslims.

On October 17, after Juma' salat, an 8 page document was given to 76 Muslims in Newark, Delaware. Most of the people were Arab and African American. These 8 page were:
  1. Br. Shamimi Siddiqi's message based on Qur'an 2:143. + Intro to Maulana Hussain Khan's Japanese translation of section 30 of the Qur'an.

  2. &
  3. Jamaat al-Muslimeen's Shoora resolutions from North Carolina on Palestine, Egypt, IS, Pakistan, Africa and political prisoners, particularly Tarik Mehanna.

  4. Iran fighting against Islamic forces in both Iraq & Syria. [General Soleimani]

  5. &
  6. Saudi pilot refused to bomb Islamic State [IS]+Battle for Kobani. Heavy bombing by US.

  7. Iraqi forces losing battles against IS + Kurdish Communists & Kurdish Islamics confront each other in Turkey and Germany.

  8. Jamaat al-Muslimeen resolutions against police brutality in USA, recognition of Dr. Abdulalim Shabazz as anti-Zionist scholar, & condemnation of sexual anarchy on TV & other media.

The khutba at the mosque by an Arab brother was about the life after death when one is in the grave. Very eloquent. It was connected to the funeral of a young man at the mosque..

UNIVERSITY of DELAWARE after Juma: It was "Homecoming," so the streets were crowded. The university is almost all White. Crowds of young women, more than half naked, some with their boy friends. The skirts have become so small that they are like underwear.

Also, there were Muslim women, students, all wrapped up in beautiful hijab. Quite a contrast. May Allah bless the hijabis. They were walking in groups.

There are two restaurants which attract Muslims, one Bangladeshi buffet and one Pakistani. Both good quality though the Pakistani one looks disorganized. A hijabi woman runs the Bangladeshi one.

Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman: Hafiz-e-Qur'an. Top Islamic Scholar in Prison: America's Shame
by Nadrat Siddique

 Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman

October is the month that Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman, Ph.D from Al-Azhar and hafiz-e-Qur'an (he memorized the Qur'an by age 11) was convicted on bogus terror charges.

Blind, diabetic, and a non-English-speaker, he has languished in prison for 19 years. He was convicted on absurd conspiracy charges, based almost entirely on the word of very highly paid informants, in what is believed to have been a favor by the U.S. government to the Mubarak regime.

A leading critic of the Egyptian dictatorship of the time, his words have since been echoed by leading figures of the Arab Spring, and accepted by many U.S. politicians. In his first public speech, Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi vowed to bring Dr. Abdel Rahman home. However, the Hafiz-e-Qur'an remains a political prisoner, while his limbs are in danger of being lost to diabetic gangrene.

FREE DR.OMAR ABDEL RAHMAN!! Free all political prisoners!!

American rabbi calls for all-out war against Islam, 'to exterminate it, utterly and absolutely'

 Jewish rabbi Shalom Lewis

A Jewish rabbi Shalom Lewis from Congregation Etz Chaim in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta, Georgia, called in his sermon celebrating the Jewish new year for genocide of all Muslims and a total global war against Islam worldwide, according to the website Mondoweiss.

At the same time, the Jew named Shalom Lewis said that it was time for a "holy crusade" against Islam "to exterminate it, utterly and absolutely".

The website reminds that 3 years ago, this same rabbi demanded to finish off Islam, once and for all. The website notes that the Jew openly calls for the mass murder of all Muslims, and not only "Islamists" or "terrorists". He believes that "all Muslims are guilty". "Most Muslims are not terrorists - but it does not matter", said the Jew.

"There are one billion Muslims in the world and authorities agree that 5% are committed Islamists who embrace terror and wish to see, by any means possible, the Muslim flag flying over every capital, on every continent. Thanks Jehovah, it's only 5%. Now I could sleep soundly. But wait, let me figure this out, 5% of a billion is... 50 million Koran-waving, Allah Akbar-howling Muslim murderers out there planning to slit our throats, blow us up or forcibly convert us... ", the rabbi scared his flock.

"Geneva is over. We are all on the front lines, like it or not. The battlefield has no boundaries and the war, no rules. All are vulnerable, and so we must recalculate our strategy, re-examine our tolerance, re-energize our resolve and unequivocally identify the evil doers. Let us not be silenced by meaningless rhetoric", called Shalom Lewis.

According to the Jew, "Israel" today is at the forefront of the democratic world and "is fighting for all of us - for our values, for our principles, for our civilization. God bless Israel and God bless the United States of America", rabbi pathetically said.

In his sermon, the Jew also scared Europe where "Muslims start feeling at home".

"They are not interested in respecting great democracies of Europe. They want the Sharia law and Islamic culture to be ascendant, and with their birthrate, the ballot box and their disdain for the West, in time they will get it...", the rabbi threatened.

"We love ethnic communities. Chinatown, Little Odessa, Greek town, Little Havana, Lower Eastside, Little Italy, but what is spreading across Europe is not charming, quaint neighborhoods enjoyed by locals and camera toting tourists in search of a charming restaurant. These are beachheads for invasion", declared Shalom Lewis.

"The Muslims are coming. The Muslims are coming!", he threatened in his sermon, calling for all-out global war on Islam.

Police Barged into their home: Ongoing Oppression: A sample
[Via Nadrat Siddique]

Michael Wiggins-Bey and his wife Annette Berry are members of the Moorish Nation. They were living peacefully in the Parkville home they have inhabited for two years, when without warning, on May 15, 2014, 6 - 7 Baltimore County police broke their door down and unlawfully entered the premises. Michael was beaten, tazed, and had a police dog sicked on him. Annette was also beaten. They were locked up, but later released on condition they not return to their home.

As a result, they... have been effectively homeless (relatives took them in) for months. They have no access to their possessions, including cell phones, laptops, and other items needed to launch an effective defense.

Michael has been charged with 17 counts: These include burglary (of his own home), theft (of his own property), numerous counts of assault (of the officers who assaulted him); animal cruelty (for attempting to fend off the German Shepherd- police dog which was biting him); and other bogus counts. Annette faces 5 counts, including assault (again- of the officers who assaulted her). This page will be used to provide updates on their case, as well as to rally support for them as their trial date approaches. Currently, the next hearing is set for October 21.
