Hadith of the Week

Narrated Abu Huraira, r.a.

The Prophet said, "If I had gold equal to the mountain of Uhud, I would love that, before three days had passed, not a single Dinar thereof remained with me if I found somebody to accept it excluding some amount that I would keep for the payment of my debts."

Intellectual Crisis of Muslim Ummah.
by Shamim Siddiqi
[Long Island, NY]

Dear Br Imam Akmal,
Asalamu alaikum wa rahmatullhe wa barakatuh.

Shukrun wa Jazakallah for your continuous efforts to spread the Deen of Allah in the Batil society where we are living and pulsating. Allah will ask us only one thing: how far we made utmost efforts to introduce and deliver His message to Batil societies of Kufr and Shirk? Their acceptance is not in our domain. The Guidance comes only from Him and one who begs for the guidance will get it.

So, we shouldn't worry at all. Our job is to deliver the guidance in the most effective way and we must use all means that are possible and are within our means. Alhamdulillah, Mohtram Dr. Br. Javed, you Br. Imam Akmal and many more brothers and sisters around the world are engaged in Dawah process. May Allah bless each of them with courage and Tawfeeq to do it in more and more accomplished form and that is why I have written the book "Global Islamic Movement-Why & How?". I an just waiting for its response globally and you all are integral part of it.

Let us all pray to Allah and galvanize out humble efforts for His Deen. The suffering humanity needs it at this juncture. When you please finish the book, kindly write to me.

Shukrun wa Jazakallah.
With best wishes to all of you

Spotlights & Guidance

 Imam Badi Ali

Do not be angry: Hadith of Prophet Muhammad, pbuh.

  1. Anger is the sign of weakness, not a sign of strength.

  2. He who angers you defeats you.

  3. Acceptance (al-Redda) is a wonderful cure for anger.
    Islam views acceptance as the source of comfort and calmness.

  4. Anger belittles you, while forgiveness makes you big.

  5. Communicating in anger is very risky business. When we are angry, we cannot think clearly. We say and do things that we regret later on.

  6. Being angry is like being under the influence of Drugs or Alcohol.

  7. Anger is like an acid that can do more harm inside you without you knowing. It is a silent killer.

  8. The angry people are those people who are most afraid.

  9. Anger always comes from frustrated expectations.

  10. For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of your life's time. Remember Allah gave you the time to worship him.

  11. Teach your children how to express anger in a positive manner and by example.

  12. Anger is a learned behavior. Children learn it from their parents and adults, in which the parents are angry at the kids, who are angry at their parents.

Another Innocent Islamic Leader Executed.
Karmruzzaman, latest Shaheed.
Dhaka Regime Killing Scholars & Teachers Unable to Fight back.

On April 11, the Dhaka regime executed the Associate Secretary General of Jamaate Islami, Karmruzzaman, after a show trial in which fake "evidence" was produced to convict him.

The trial was a violation of all law including international law. Bangladesh did not exist when the supposed crimes took place. There was a civil war in 1971 of which India took advantage and smashed Pakistan.
The Pakistani army, which did commit atrocities, as did the Mukti Bahini armed by India, went off scot free. The Pakistanis surrendered without telling the Bengali Muslims fighting for Pakistan.

Pakistan made a deal and its prisoners came back home. The Bengalis who fought for Pakistan are being treated as traitors and criminals.
The Hindu minority sided with India and is looting and enjoying Bangladesh.

Shamefully, the Pakistani army has not said a word against the oppression of pro-Pakistan Bengalis.
Trials held after 40 years require paid and fabricated witnessing. The Muslims of Bangladesh are helpless.



Agha Khani cult is outright Shirk [associationism]
Redirecting The Ismā'īlī Du'a' Towards Allah

by qamar samad
[Excerpted from Inside Ismailism, April 10, 2015]

Aga Khan wants that all Ismailis must make dua to him, because in return for his blessing and giving they serve him with all heart soul, tan, mann and dhann. They must be made to accept that Aga Khan is divine and giver of everything they have. They say: "Ya Noor Mawlana Shah Karim al-Husaini Hazar Imām, hamari aal aulaad mein izaafa kar"

Therefore, by making dua to Aga Khan in Jamatkhana, they purchase their belief on mowla and loyalty to mowla in return. For this Ismalis must assume that mowla gives them, so it's a part of eveyday worship that all need are addresses to Imam.

By dua you connect to Allah as you make Dua to Him, but if Ismalis are made to make Dua to Aga Khan then they connect to Aga Khan. He did this because once Ismalis will believe that Aga Khan give us then they will in return serve Aga Khan with tan, mann and dhann.

Righteous people will deny to that people make Dua to them.

As Ismailis, we used to ask Hazar Imām for everything in our rituals, prayers and even in our daily lives instead of making dua to Allah. We created stereotypes who only made dua to Aga Khan. We used to pass through a process twice each day where we used to make dua to Aga Khan and the impact was that in our daily routine and normal talks we frequently used phrases like "Mowla shukar hai" and "Mowla mushily aasaan karay".

Still, Ismailis are programmed like that each day to create stereotypes. The benefit the Aga Khan gets is their loyalty as we are loyal to the one who is giving us. This is exactly how their connection with Allah is broken. Even on their death beds they say "Ya Mowla, ya Mowla". Allah is far away.

With Dua you connect with Allah and this blessing has been stolen from Ismalis by their Imām. They are most unfortunate people that they are misguided with this false make belief that Imām has noor of Allah and He takes your dua to Allah. He has come in way between Allah and His slaves as a median who tell them to make dua to him. Prophets, Imām, and all the people that are mentioned in the Quran made dua only to Allah.

There are 500 ayats in the Quran that say make dua to Allah or about people who made dua to Allah. Did not Asab-Khaf made dua to Allah that "Our Rab Grant ur from your presence mercy and arrange for is our affairs in the right way surely u are Al Wahab". Read Surah al-Khaf, Allah made time to change for them. Did nor Mary, Prophet Zikariaya, Yousaf and all others made Dua to Allah in the Quran.

In the end you yourself will destroy if you keep on persisting with this false belief. No one will be affected but you. Life is short, you will soon know.

As Ismailis, you say in Surah Fatiha thrice-a-day:
إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ
Translation: "You alone we Worship and You alone we seek help"

A Refutation of Westernized Muslims who Attack Hadith
by Dr. Kaukab Siddique

In 1861 a Christian missionary writer named William Muir wrote a book titled THE LIFE of MAHOMET in which he attacked Hadith. A famous Muslim scholar of the time, Sir Sayyid Ahmed Khan answered Muir in detail. Unfortunately Sir Sayyid was himself a great admirer of British power and was deeply overawed by the majesty of the British Empire. He gradually succumbed to Muir's attack and start casting doubts on some segments Hadith. Gradually he narrowed down the efficacy of Hadith to a very few aspects of life.

Through Sir Sayyid influence on westernized Indian Muslims, the attack on Hadith gradually entered the mentally defeated segment of what we today call the Pakistani elites or the Pakistani ruling class.

In 1896 a Jewish scholar named Goldziher launched a massive attack on Hadith in his publication Muhammedanische Studien. It was not translated into English until 1967 but in 1950, its major thesis was taken up and built on by another Jewish scholar Joseph Schacht in his book ORIGINS OF MUHAMMADAN JURISPRUDENCE.

Under the influence of Sir Sayyid, a number of writers under severe inferiority complex to the west emerged. The most important of these was Ghulam Ahmed Pervez who carried out systematic and scurrilous attacks on Hadith. His magazine Tolu-e-Islam, started in 1938, became a rallying point for anti-Hadith writings with a clear pro-government bias.

In the 1960s came Dr. Fazlur Rahman who carried out a more sophisticated attack on Hadith.

All these anti-Hadith efforts were tackled by scholars of various schools of Islamic thought in Pakistan. Abul Ala Maudoodi was the most famous of these but there were others whose rebuttal of the anti-Hadith people was more far reaching than his. [Maudoodi was too polite towards the attackers.]

The anti-Hadith people became irrelevant in Pakistan but they have found some support among Pakistanis in America. One of them has set up shop in Florida and attracted admirers by denouncing Imam Bukhari's Sahih. A bunch of these characters are busy on the Internet abusing the Hadith under the slogan of "QUR'AN ONLY." Every now and then I receive their emails.

I am willing to listen to any critique of the Hadith, and even of the Qur'an, if it is written in scholarly language and based on honest investigation. It should not take the shape of abuse, out of context listing of quotations and downright fabrication. The arrogance and deliberate efforts of these people to remove Prophet Muhammad's (pbuh) leadership from Islam forced me to give them some of my valuable time.


I pointed out that the QUR'AN DOES NOT MENTION RAPE. I asked the anti-Hadith people to give me chapter and verse from the Qur'an. What is rape, what is its punishment and how is this punishment to be implemented? Give chapter and verse. I sent my question to all the Pervaiz followers and other anti-Hadith people. They are unable to give chapter and verse.

So the Qur'an does not mention the punishment for rape. It's given in Hadith. [My book LIBERATION of WOMEN THRU ISLAM is the only book in English which gives the Hadith on rape.] Qur'an and Hadith have always been together.

So let's look at the verses of the Qur'an which are misused by the Pervaizi cult and other anti-Hadith people.


This is one of the verses which the "Qur'an Only" cult [Pervaizis] keep repeating. They quote it as follows:

"We have sent down to thee the Book explaining all things." [16:89]

Actually the whole verse is as follows:

"On the Day we shall raise from all Peoples a witness against them, from amongst themselves: And we shall bring thee [O Muhammad] as a witness against these: And WE have sent down to thee the Book explaining all things, a Guide, a Mercy, and Glad Tidings to Muslims."

[Note the extra-Qur'anic role of the Prophet, pbuh, as witness against his people. If Muslims are Muhammad's, pbuh, people, then he, as leader through his teachings, is a witness against them till the Day of Judgement.]

NOW FOCUS ON THE WORDS "explaining all things" ["tibyaanal-li-kulli shay'in" in Arabic.] Does this mean that the Qur'an covers every possible issue and leaves nothing out, with emphasis on ALL? Other verses of the Qur'an indicate that this is an idiom which indicates that fundamental or generic issues of a great variety are covered. Seminal issues are covered. For instance, harshness towards women is forbidden, as in Sura Nisa. But it does not mean that EVERYTHING is in the Qur'an. Let's understand this terminology from the Qur'an itself. For instance, about the Tablets or Commandments given to Moses, the Qur'an uses just about the same words:

"And we ordained for him in the Tablets in ALL MATTERS, admonition and EXPLANATION of ALL THINGS, (and said): "Take and hold these with firmness, and enjoin thy people to hold fast by the best in the precepts: Soon shall I show you the homes of the wicked.' " [7:145]

[The Arabic for the words I have put in capitals is "min kulli shay'in' and "tafsillal-li-kulli shay."]

Evidently ALL things could not possibly be written on explained on the Tablets. It is simply idiomatic expression for essentials and fundamentals.

Now focus on the word ALL [kull in Arabic]. Does it mean LITERALLY ALL and EVERYTHING in Arabic? Let's see what the Qur'an says:

"And thy Lord taught the Bee to build its cells in hills, on trees, and in habitations: Then to eat of ALL ["kull'] of the fruits (of the earth) and follow the ways of thy Lord made smooth... [to the end of the verse]" [16:68-69]

Obviously the ALL here is idiomatic and not to be taken literally. No Bee can possibly eat of ALL the fruits, literally.

"And proclaim the Pilgrimage among men: they will come to thee on foot and on EVERY {"kull} camel lean, through deep and distant highways." [22:27]

Again the EVERY camel has to be idiomatic. It cannot be taken literally to mean that every possible camel will be ridden by the pilgrims!

In the story of the Queen of Sheba (known as Bilqis), the Hoopoe says:

"I found a woman ruling over them and provided with EVERY THING {"kull sha'yi"}, and she has a magnificent throne." [27:23]

Evidently Bilqis did not LITERALLY have every thing. It is an idiom to indicate that she has all the fundamental riches of the world.

To conclude this section, the Qur'an includes ALL the fundamental and seminal issues which humanity needs but there are many important things not in it which were taught by the Prophet (pbuh.) [Also, once Qur'an and Hadith are understood they can be used as basis for Islamic understanding, BUT BOTH do not cover many things for which ijtihad, qiyas, and many other forms of reasoning are needed.]

The Hadith of the Prophet (pbuh) explain how Muhammad (pbuh) understood and implemented the verses of the Qur'an. Everything he taught is as much a part of Islam as is anything in the Qur'an.

Rape was defined and punished by the Prophet (pbuh) and he also indicated that the woman's word be accepted and the man be punished after proper investigation. It's in the Hadith, NOT in the Qur'an.


 El-Arish Egypt

Egypt's Sinai Peninsula hit by deadly bomb attacks

In El-Arish, residents said the neighbourhood shook as a bomb was detonated outside the police barracks.

"Those at the other end of town heard the explosion. It was humongous. It terrified us," said one resident who lives near the police station.Witnesses said the vehicle drove through security barriers and rammed the building despite being fired on by security forces.

 El-Arish Egypt

The three-storey building was badly damaged and nearby homes were also destroyed, with doors ripped off and windows shattered.

In a statement on its Facebook page (in Arabic), the Egyptian interior ministry said a suicide bomber driving a pick-up truck was behind the attack.

"Forces opened fire at the vehicle, which consequently exploded," it added.

The death toll - which included five soldiers and a civilian - rose from six to eight as bodies were pulled from the rubble, officials said.

Earlier in the day, a roadside bomb struck an army vehicle at Sheikh Zuweid. The military said the attack killed an officer, a sergeant and four soldiers - revising an earlier death toll from seven to six.

 El-Arish Egypt

A statement on a Twitter page attributed to the Sinai Province group read: "An armoured personnel carrier for the army of the apostates was destroyed... killing and wounding all aboard."

The Sinai Province group was known as Ansar Beit al-Maqdis until it pledged allegiance to Islamic State in November. It says it is seeking revenge for a police crackdown on Morsi supporters. Since then it has carried out numerous deadly attacks on the peninsula, killing hundreds of police officers and soldiers, as well as civilians.

Sunday's attacks bring April's death toll to at least 41.

A Billion Dollar Military Help from the US to Fight The Islamic Uprising in the North West.
Published uncut from the pro-Government daily Dawn.

WASHINGTON: The US State Department has approved Pakistan's request for a billion dollars worth of military hardware and equipment, identifying Pakistan as a country of vital importance for US foreign policy and national interests.

Diplomatic sources told Dawn Pakistan had submitted its request last year, stating that the weapons were needed for fighting insurgents in the country's mountainous regions.
The US Defence Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale. "This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a country vital to US foreign policy and national security goals in South Asia," the certification said.

"This proposed sale of helicopters and weapon systems will provide Pakistan with military capabilities in support of its counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency operations in South Asia," it added.

The agency informed US lawmakers that this proposed sale would provide Pakistan with "a precision strike, enhanced survivability aircraft" that it can operate at high-altitudes.

"By acquiring this capability, Pakistan will enhance its ability to conduct operations in North Waziristan, Fata, and other remote and mountainous areas in all-weather, day-and-night environments. Pakistan will have no difficulty absorbing these helicopters into its armed forces," the certification said. The agency also assured US lawmakers that the proposed sale "will not alter the basic military balance in the region".

It informed Congress that the State Department had approved this possible Foreign Military Sale to Pakistan for AH-1Z Viper Attack Helicopters and AGM-114R Hellfire II Missiles and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $952 million.

The notification said the government of Pakistan had requested a possible sale of 15 AH-1Z Viper Attack Helicopters, 32 T-700 GE 401C Engines (30 installed and 2 spares), 1000 AGM-114 R Hellfire II Missiles in containers, 36 H-1 Technical Refresh Mission computers, 17 AN/AAQ-30 Target Sight Systems, 30 629F-23 Ultra High Frequency/Very High Frequency Communication Systems, 19 H-764 Embedded Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation Systems, 32 Helmet Mounted Display/Optimized Top Owl, 17 APX-117A Identification Friend or Foe, 17 AN/AAR-47 Missile Warning Systems, 17 AN/ALE-47 Counter-measure Dispenser Sets, 18
AN/APR-39C(V)2 Radar Warning Receivers, 15 Joint Mission Planning Systems, and 17 M197 20mm Gun Systems.
Also included are system integration and testing, software development and integration, aircraft ferry, support equipment, spare and repair parts, tools and test equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, US government and contractor engineering, technical, and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistics and programme support.

The agency informed Congress that implementation of this proposed sale will require multiple trips by US government and contractor representatives to participate in programme and technical reviews, as well as training and maintenance support in the country for a period of 66 months.
It will also require three contractor representatives to reside in the country for a period of three years to support this programme.

"There will be no adverse impact on US defence readiness as a result of this proposed sale," the certification said.

"The State Department approved a possible foreign military sale to Pakistan for helicopters and associated equipment, parts and support for an estimated cost of $952 million," a State Department official told Dawn.

"This proposed sale of helicopters and weapon systems will provide Pakistan with military capabilities in support of its counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency operations," the official said.

Why did Many Muslims Believe Stories about Yazeedis to Smear ISIS?
by New Trend's Media Monitor

According to Associated Press, Islamic State [IS] just released 216 Yazeedis. Another 200 were released in January. This is an anti-Muslim community which lynched a woman who embraced Islam

Huge propaganda against IS has been made on behalf of Yazeedis. The media did not mention that Yazeedis are deeply connected to Israel and the USA and many of them are armed. Very hostile to the Islamic State.

I researched this situation and found that abuse of ISIS is sheer propaganda.

Remember that America put the ENTIRE Japanese American community in concentration camps during World War 2 and kept them there during the whole war. They were neither hostile nor armed.

Muslims know the media are Zionist and corporate controlled. The media lie, we know, yet when they do propaganda against the Caliphate, we accept it hook line and sinker. Disagree but don't lie!

Islamic State & Al-Nusra Unite to capture 90% of Yarmuk Camp at Damascus Entrance; IS Attacks Assad's Air Base on Damascus-Suweida Higheway. Heavy fighting with Communists near Tel Tamer.

Alawite [Assad] Air Force Attacks School in Aleppo Killing 5 children & 5 teachers.

On April 7, 90 % of the huge Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp which abuts Damascus fell into the hands of the Islamic state [from south] in conjunction with al-Nusra fighters advancing from the east.

Assad forces intensified their bombardment of Yarmouk and made a pact with PLO [secularist Palestinians] to drive out IS.

[Immediately media around the world started writing about the suffering In Yarmouk as if IS' arrival is causing it. Assad has been shelling and mortaring the camp for two years causing most refugees to flee.]

In another surprise attack, IS tried to to capture Assad's air base on the highway going north from Damascus to Suweida [a Druze area]. Assad lost 20 troops but was able to hold off the IS fighters.

Bombing raids by the Shite [Alawite] Assadi air force continued in six areas, including Muslim areas of Hama and Homs plus across Idlib causing civilian casualties. In Aleppo's al-Ansar area the air force hit a Muslim school killing 5 children and 6 teachers and injuring 13 students.

In the north east Tel Tamer area and northern Raqqa, clashes are continuing between Communist YPG Kurds and the Islamic Kurd fighters who are part of IS. US air force is active in the area helping the Communists.

Al-Nusra has withdrawn from the Jordan-Syria border crossing of Kasib after the moderately Islamic groups asked them to withdrawn.

Fighters from Muslim and European countries to arrive in Syria to help IS. The Caliphate has set up a school on the Syria Iraq border to train children who want to grow up as Islamic people.


New ISIS Offensive in Iraq: Ramadi & Baiji.

On April 10, Islamic State fighters who had withdrawn from Tikrit attacked the districts held by the Baghdad regime north of Ramadi. There was heavy fighting in which the regime forces paid with many lives. Their commander General Qassim was wounded. CNN was too shocked to describe the defeat but put it in ONE sentence:

"The northern Ramadi districts of Albu Faraj, Albu Essa and Albu Risha were in the hands of ISIS by the time the day was done."

On April 12, ISIS launched an attack from three directions on the area holding the Iraqi oil refinery in the Beiji area. This is Iraq's biggest oil refinery.

Heavy fighting is going on. The Baghdad regime claims the attack was beaten back but IS has issued a video showing IS Humvees in the Beiji refinery area.

Kurdish Peshmarga in the north of Iraq have been unable to advance in spite of US air support and bombing of IS targets,


After 1000 air strikes by the Saudis, the Houthis are Advancing. Saudi Crimes against Humanity.
Thank you Pakistan. For once Muslims can be proud of you.

Every day the Saudis bomb supposedly Houthi targets. The Houthis cant shoot down the late model jet bombers.

More than 600 people have been killed in the bombing to date, including 65 children.

The Houthi advance has been slowed down but not stopped.

On the ground, the Sunni forces of the previous dictator, Saleh, and the current dictator-to-be, Hadi are fighting each other.

Meanwhile Pakistan's parliament turned down the Saudi demand for military help. Imran Khan and Jamaate Islami played a positive role in this.

More importantly, the Pakistani army in huge numbers, is in occupation of the northern areas trying to crush the Islamic uprising.

The mujahideen are once again trying to take the initiative and USA has promised huge military help to Pakistan but it will take at least 6 months.

Strange paradox: The hard core Sunni Pak Taliban seem to have saved the moderate Houthi Shias from the brutal hands of the Pakistani army.

Latest: Saudi troops and Yemeni fighters are massing on the border, Five Saudi troops killed in initial clashes.

[New Trend editor: Saudis should stop pumping this shameful assault on Yemen as a Sunni Shia war. Iran has only made noise against "Wahhabis." This Saudi attack is shameful and open aggression for which there can be no excuse. Let Hadi and Saleh fight it out, Both are Sunni frauds.]

Was the Boston Bombing case a Show Trial?:
Eyewitness Account: Questions that were not asked.
by Sis. Karin Friedemann

On the morning of the verdict, April 8, 2015 in front of the courthouse, there were old ladies passing out anti-death penalty literature based on Roman Catholicism; Veterans for Peace were there with their white flag holding signs about "blowback," and later on an Islamophobe with his face covered with an American flag held a sign saying,""Dzokhar Tsarnaev was not a follower. He is just another Islamic terrorist declaring war against (kafirs mean infidels) Non-Muslims people. He is just trying to please his god (Satan)" and something about "Islamofascism."

There were many many intimidating looking police and Homeland Security vehicles preventing any traffic in front of the courthouse, guards, police dogs and many cameramen.

As expected, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found guilty. He did not react with any emotion. He seemed to be "not there," leading many to speculate that he had been heavily drugged. Throughout the trial, his eyes looked kind of strange.

It was still astonishing that he was found guilty of all 30 charges, including the bomb that his brother is said to have placed down, and the death of the police officer that was already determined to be shot by "friendly fire" during the chaos at Watertown. He was also found guilty of killing the MIT police officer even though investigators only claim to have found his brother's fingerprints on the gun. The entire trial was carefully controlled, with defense lawyers looking to the judge for permission to speak, witnesses looking to the CIA and FBI officers for cues.

The big elephant in the room was all the questions that were not allowed to be asked. The defense was not allowed to ask whether Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was even armed when officers pumped more than 100 bullets into the boat where he was hiding.There is definitely some huge cover-up going on, something that the government does not want coming out! It was a show trial.

"The prosecution and the defense have been doing a startling job. They are amazing. I've covered a lot of trials and it's absolutely the best tried trial I've ever seen in my life. The choice of witnesses ... the timing of the prosecution's case, was unbelievably good," commented Russian author Masha Gesser. "But structurally it's not the role of the American justice system to find the truth. The American justice system administers punishment. It does not conduct inquests and it does not find facts."

The FBI's failure to protect the public "is either grounds for indicting the Bureau for incompetence, or it is an indication that these brothers were, like thousands of others, caught up in some web of provocation, either as plot infiltrators or informants," writes Russ Baker.

Those who have been paying attention are still scratching their heads at all the things that made no sense, like why Tsarnaev would calmly spend several minutes in the store deciding which snacks to buy, while his brother held a man at gunpoint in a hijacked vehicle. Or why they thought it would be better to hijack a car when they already had a car. Or why they would kill a cop in order to get his gun, when they already had a gun.

A skeptic I talked to at the courthouse speculated that the Mossad, whose Israeli agents had immediately swooped into Boston to capitalize on the post-bombing situation, had created the diversion by killing the officer in order to steal classified information from MIT.

"What also doesn't make sense is for the prosecution to omit a chunk of time from that video, which can clearly be observed in the video linked above (as evidence by the timestamp and the cars passing on the upper left corner of the video). There is really no need to edit out any part of the video if everything happened exactly as the prosecution has described it," writes Klaus Marre of

The prosecutors had justified this video editing as saving the jury's time, but they had not cared about wasting hours and hours of the jury's time listening to irrelevant testimony. Most Americans are not asking these questions. They are debating what the best punishment for the little terrorist should be, based on what would hurt him more. There is a vicious lynch mob mentality that is seething with hate and anti-Muslim prejudice.

If it were really true that Jahar bombed the marathon in retaliation for US war victims, which we know nothing about except from a note that mysteriously appeared three weeks later in the boat where he was captured, then the American people are the ones who should feel the most remorse! Because the American people would thus be morally responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing. Their eyes should be wet with tears of shame for the suffering that they have caused to innocent people, and thanksgiving to God that only four people were killed this time.

Instead, the event has served to create a fascist public mentality, to create support for ongoing killing of Muslims around the world and strip away civil freedoms at home.

Attorneys who defend Accused Muslim political Prisoners are intimidated & do a poor job
by Sis. Aisha [New York City]

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been convicted as the Boston Marathon Bomber, if what people suggest is true then, he and his brother were possibly framed. There was never a thorough investigation to see what really happened. This case has serious problems just as the Oklahoma City Bombing and the Washington D.C. Sniper Cases did. He is currently in the penalty phase of his "trial" where the jurors decide whether or not he gets the death sentence.

The unsettling questions I have about this case is, "Did Tsarnaev's attorneys really fight for justice for their client or did they play ball?" Play ball is a term I picked up from notorious civil rights attorney Alton Maddox. He has stated in interviews that prosecutors and judges would hold meetings with the defense attorney in a highly publicized trial. The prosecutor and the judge would try to intimidate the defense attorney into playing ball, which means putting on a weak defense so that they can get an easy conviction.

If the defense attorney balks at such intimidation he/she will pay the consequences. Alton Maddox was illegally disbarred over 25 years ago by then, NY State Attorney Abrams. It was a personal vendetta. He opted to go after Maddox rather than pursue a sexual assault case against Father Bruce Ritter, who had been accused of raping runaway male prostitutes seeking refuge from that life at his Covenant House!

Then, there is Lynne Stewart and her paralegal Ahmed Abdel Sattar. She was recently released due to her cancer battle but, Ahmed is still in prison. Both fought valiantly for Sheikh Omar Abdurrahman and were punished on frivolous charges for it. This is what happens when you don't play ball or rollover and let the system take your client.

The Boston Bomber defense team was always at a disadvantage in this case. The judge did everything he could to cripple them. But, did they do all they could do to challenge the judge's motions? Did they put up a fight to get him recused from the case?

I read Sis. Karin Friedmann's articles where she's mentioned that defense attorneys for Tsarnaev's friends are being pressured, too. I understood this to mean that their defense was being hindered by the government and that they were being told to give up their clients.

This is why I say that do-or-die defense attorneys are very hard to find. These are people who are feisty by nature. You don't get trained in being feisty. Even high-priced, celebrity attorneys will rollover to protect their practice. So, not every high-priced attorney is a great one.

A feisty personality is something that you're either born with or you develop from being tired of being sick and tired. These types of attorneys are normally found through word of mouth advertising. They don't bask in the limelight. Their only goal is to get justice for their clients. And, finding an attorney, who is willing to risk his/her career, to stick it to the man will take some digging on the defendant's or his/her family's part. But, they are out there

Background Study

 Islamic Caliphate

Shocking Eyewitness Account of a Trip to the Islamic Caliphate.
Part 1

In The Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

After waiting on the side of the road for more than 10 days with dozens of families, I stepped in the last station before entering the first point in a land much has been said in novels that has been written and myths have been told about it ..

Few hundred meters, its all what stands between me and the land of hope, as some likes to call, few hundred meters that I marched on foot, with my bag on my back in which I had inside some clothes, my long distances walking shoes and my video camera, a photographic one and a laptop.

Before the last checkpoint I got through, someone who was entering the land of caliphate too, asked me about my identity, I told him that I am carrying a foreign passport, he freaked out and he said:

"Are you crazy! how could you enter ISIS lands with a foreign passport, I have heard much about them from the media..maybe they will slice you and throw your body parts to the dogs,as media says about them,or may be they will ask a huge ransom from the country you came from"

He advised me to hide my passport in a place they cant reach or throw it away as the safest proceedure if I had to go in then he added:

"I didn't go in to this land for months, Mosul has been liberated while I was outside of the city,now I decided to come back to see what happened to my city,I had to come back because I dont have enough money to stay outside ! "

I realized that this guy was living in Mosul, and he wants to go in for the first time after the liberation, but he carries many thoughts about what's happening there, and all what he carries came from anti Islamic State media !

While I was on my way walking on the distance that stands between the two enemies(IS and Peshmerga)I had many emotions in my head, because there, I was leaving a world known by everybody, a (Shiite-Kurd) world covered by a media helping in the good and bad situations, serving it on Haq(truth) and falsehood, despite justice being in the land they rule, a world some people see its being ruled by the law while the truth is that its ruled by jungle law that is drowned in corruption. I stood there carrying those emotions despite my believe that the land that I am now on its gates (Islamic State) can't be what Media likes to picture it, because I lived there with my pen, I wrote about its soldiers and its Jihad, but writing is something and reality is another thing.

Despite the fears that the media, with its different origins and perspectives, and the ignorant people were trying to raise in the hearts of those who can't wait for Allah's law to be applied, such as me, despite all that I sensed there ,for the first time, a breeze coming from that way, from the land of war and holy Jihad, I was breathing deeply as if I never breathed before, I was happy inside, I wanted to run to race some of those people who surpassed me on their way to the borders of the caliphate , but I preferred to stay in the middle so I wouldn't attract attention, the last meters seemed to me as the longest distance I ever walked , and I wanted to finish it safely because it was the most dangerous in my trip, despite all the difficulties I faced, the risks I struggled and numerous times I got caught in this long trip !

Few minutes later, Minutes that seemed like years, I arrived in the land of dreams, the land I once lived in and worked as a journalist and an activist, and even interacted with its mujahedeen, And in spite of the American crusaders and their dogs the apostates and the safavid's, but I left this land more than 8 years ago, I was forced not willing, the first and the second generations of the mujahedeen that I interacted with most of them became martyrs whom on their skulls and blood the Caliphate has been built today ,by the grace of Allah, and after this blessed group, another generations came, the one's who were very young when the American invasion began, now they became solid men, they are mujahedeen in the army of Haq, the army of Caliphate that is facing the crusaders in this religious war that Muslims fight against the groups of Kufr.

The eyes of heavily armed soldiers who were on the sides of the road for hundreds of meters were looking at me as if I was a powerful beast, or I just felt like that while I was watching them, you could see the evil from their eyes, I noticed the fear and terror in those eyes, I felt that finishing this distance standing between the camps of Haq and falsehood is an Eid(Celebration), its even a rebirth for me!

I finally arrived in the land of the Caliphate and before I kiss its ground I looked behind, I wanted to spit on everything behind me if it was'nt for some people who were still walking behind me, who were also going my destination, I took the bag out of my back, and put my laptop and camera beside it , and I kept kissing the ground and wallowing my face with the dirt of the land of Caliphate..!

I stood up after embracing that land that I missed so much, I took my mobile phone to call my wife, which I left behind with my two kids, because I couldn't take them with me to the land of Caliphate due to the difficult procedures, and the complications of the journey, I told her that I am now in the most dangerous place on earth as they describe it, and I wouldn't be able to contact you as there is no communication or internet there, I told her to raise a hungry lions for me not sheep's, referring to my kids that I left behind..!

When I called my wife those were the last words she heard from me and I added to her :"If Allah Allows me to live, I will come back one day, and if I don't be patient, I never went looking for a fake glory but rather the truth and the reality that I must discover myself, so I wouldn't be like those who write what they hear from others, I must witness everything away from intolerance and blind partisanship and transparent lies and dishonest media and the fabrication of the TV channels !

Beside me and just few meters away from the last checkpoint in the last location under the authority of Shiites and Kurds, there was a group of minivans , some of the drivers were shouting: Hawija (city in Kirkuk), others :Qiyyara(city in Nineveh), others were shouting other cities but I was attracted to the sound of a driver calling: Mosul. Mosul!

What a name.. I didn't intent to go to the city (Mosul) because I haven't decided my destination yet, in fact all I thought about back then was how to get to the Caliphate land.. but the sound of the city name attracted me, its the city in which the deviant groups collapsed in few hours , and it was liberated by the hands of mujahedeen in a glimpse of an eye..!!

For a while my memory went back to the days and hours of the liberation of this historical city, second by second, back then I was communicating with the news channels, supplying them with the news of the battles first by first, I was connected to many of the city citizens who were sending me the breaking news the moment it happened, so it seemed to the channels which used my information's that I was in the battlefield, and so I thought myself!

I walked after that to the origin of the sound shouting(Mosul. Mosul), I stood before the driver with my luggage and asked him with enthusiasm: where is your vehicle ?!

He answered me: there, in that minivan, pointing to a KIA with a capacity of 11 persons, I went there and it was 20 meters far which I passed with only two steps, or that's how I felt!

It was like the forbidden land in the battles, its ground was full of garbage, because no one from the two enemies enters it except for civilians travelling between the two states with their new temporary boarders, people wait here for days and weeks before they are allowed to pass, Those who oppose the Islamic State think that everyone who goes in Islamic State territory is a terrorist, whatever is his job or career or nationality, who ever is he, whether he is Sunni Muslim or a monotheist Arab, the same case is for those who leave the land of Caliphate, they are treated as terrorists too ,who is responsible for the blood of the Shiite and Kurd soldiers killed!!

I put my camera and laptop beside me and the bag in the trunk... than I sat waiting the departure of the minivan to the most horrifying city in the world, Mosul!

The Minivan was full except for one seat, Moments later a lady walked in, she looked like she was in her 50's, Now we are ready to go, The lady was in a seat just beside me and there was two young guys beside her as well, they looked like they where in their twenties, behind us there was a family that consist of a man and two women, there was also two guys beside me in the row, I was the nearest to the door, in front of me there was two men, they were sitting close with the driver, one was a university teacher and another was in his thirties,
The driver took off after he asked 23$ from every one and every body approved without hesitation, its a good price, rather low, to go to a such city!

Few hundreds of meters away, about a kilometer, we reached the first checkpoint of the Islamic State .. The black flag of Tawheed was on a bridge which is practically what divides between the frontiers of Islamic State and its enemies.. I contemplated that flag that fluttered with pride and superiority in the land of Islam, after raising it in a place was considered as an act of terrorism,and the one who raises it gets captured and tortured , in fear of what it represents of true Islam that's different from what nations want, so they fight and try to represent different picture than the truth, in their relentlessly fight against those who follow the prophet peace and blessing be upon him.

 Islamic Caliphate

I was amazed at first how short is the distance that stands between the Islamic State and its enemies..the bridge used to lead to many roads, it got bombed, and its still standing despite the ferocity of the attack, the Americans, French, Jordanians, UK, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Morocco jets bombed it with 6 rockets, it only damaged some parts of it,wich I have seen when I passed under it, in that position stands the first fighter from the Islamic State army that I lay eyes on after thousands of kilometers that I got through on my way to the land of the Caliphate!

Our minivan stopped behind a vehicle that the Mujahedeen of the Islamic State were checking, so I left the minivan and went there because of my curiosity and my desire to know how they inspect and deal with people, I stood next to the passengers of that vehicle without being prevented from the inspectors!

The Islamic State Soldier asked the vehicle passengers if anyone was carrying cigarettes in his bag or pocket, and every body replied no, including a lady about 50 years old but her child asked her:" mummy, don't you have cigarettes with you, why do you say that you don't have?!!"

The men of the Islamic State laughed because of the innocence of the child and repeated the question again without pointing to anyone, that's when the lady replied: "yes my sons, I have cigarettes!"

They asked her nicely to give them the cigarettes and she told them that she has them in her belt(under her Abaya "Dress" ) so they asked her to go to a location they built from hard concrete to protect them from the airstrikes, the lady went there while the Islamic State men were busy having a conversation with the other passengers that I didnt hear much of it, the lady came back with 3 boxes of cigarettes (each box contains 10x20 cigarettes) that she had on her belt, one of the mujahedeen adressed to her without looking at her: "Mother, we are ashamed of dealing with the youth for carrying cigarettes, so how about you!.." then he added : "I ask god to forgive us and you, go back to your seat god bless you!"

That scene never left my imagination, it was the first scene I witnessed about how Islamic State men deal with the population of Sunni areas that's being liberated from the authorities of Shia and Kurds, and to say the truth I was watching how they dealt with the lady and the verdict on those who carry Contraband stuff, including cigarettes, as it is in the law of the Islamic State based on the Shari'a, I wasn't surprised by the shy and forgiving way they dealt her with, but those who listen and watch the Iraqi and Arab and Kurd and International media would assert to that the soldiers of the Islamic State would cut off the woman's head then burn it in a hole next to the checkpoint as we used to hear from all sorts of media!!

One of the Islamic State men asked the driver of our KIA to move forward for inspection so I came back to my seat and the vehicle advanced just few meters!

The young man sitting next to me freaked out, as I noticed, and he asked me : "What should I do. What's going to happen to me ..!"

I asked him about his problem and he replied that he is carrying cigarettes in his pocket and he fears that he would get arrested for that and he asked me about my opinion, could he throw it out of the car or hide it under the seat, I asked him to be patient and to stay calm and that there is nothing to worry about ..I said that to him after I witnessed how they dealt with the lady in the vehicle in front of us, but he was still worried and was trembling in fear!

A man from the Islamic state stood in front of the side door, he was in his twenties.. He was amazingly calm, always smiling .. He started with greetings without asking us to get out of the minivan, as he did with the previous vehicle, then he asked us if there is someone who is carrying
 Islamic Caliphate
cigarettes, even before asking us about our identities or destination. The guy next to me became more nervous and he kept looking at me without knowing how to answer them, they don't inspect anyone, they just ask but the guy was very afraid so I answered for him : "Is there a penalty for the ones who carries(cigarettes)?!

The man answered smiling: " there is no penalty if the person gives it voluntarily!", I replied:" then we have cigarettes but only one box.." I answered him like that, and he replied smiling: " give it to me may Allah forgive you!"

I asked the guy next to me to give me the cigarettes, he gave it to me with his hands trembling from fear, the Mujahid was surprised that I am not the one who held the cigarettes and rather spoke for the young man..!

The mujahed got the box of cigarettes and pressured it hardly before heading to a small fire on the side of the road and he threw the box in it, then he came back to ask the young man if he carries more in his bag, he denied and asked the mujahed to inspect it if he wants to but he said there is no need and asked him to get out of the KIA to talk to him a bit!

The young man left the vehicle, the colour of his face changed of fear, the mujahed took him few meters away and had a conversation with him so I followed them but the IS fighter told me to stay away so I reminded him of his promise not to hurt the young man, he smiled again and said to me : "I am on my promise but how can a muslim man cut his eye brows like a woman does!" and he reminded him about the prophet's Hadith about this subject and I kept listening with the young man to the mujahed who finally patted on the guys shoulder saying: " Dont repeat it again, you are a guy and a man,and this thing isn't Befits even for women so how about men like you..!"

The young man promised that it would be his last time saying that he didn't know the Shari'a aspects of the matter, the Mujahid told him that his promise must be to Allah not his slaves ,the guy confirmed that he will keep this promise since this action is prohibited in Shari'a then he came back to his seat with a face full of joy this time !

We came back to the vehicle and I remembered the words of the man who warned me from showing my foreign passport to the checkpoints of the Islamic State other wise they will kill me as he said, so I decided to go for my first deadly adventure,as some people would see it, and I headed for the same Mujahid ... and I said to him: "is there any Shia or Pkk or Peshmerga we are going to pass by on our way to Mosul ?". He replied with smile on his face: "If you walk thousands of kilometers from here you won't find a trace of them, all praise to Allah, there is only the Islamic State and its Muslim citizens! "

Then I asked him the dangerous question :"I came from abroad and I intent to enter the Islamic Caliphate Land, what papers or assurances do I need to have a legitimate entry?!", the man was surprised by my question and he replied: "Are you Muslim?!" and I said yes, he said :"do you witness that there is no god but Allah and that Mohamed is his messenger?", I said :" yes by the grace of Allah" , He replied:" then you won't need your Passport, put it in your pocket, because your passport is the Shahada, that's all what you need to enter to the land of the Caliphate!"

My eyes were drowned with tears, seeing my passport that many people dream of, worth nothing in front of the divine passport that the Islamic State created for its Muslim citizens! I felt glory, or rather a dream that I don't want to wake up from , a dream nothing woke me up from except the arms of the Mujahid around me hugging me saying:" Welcome to the land of the Caliphate!"
