Hadith of the Week

For Muslims, every day is Mother's Day

Concern for Mother and Baby is more important than extended prayer in the second holiest mosque of Islam.

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Abi Qatada, .: My father said, "The Prophet said, 'When I stand for prayer, I intend to prolong it but on hearing the cries of a child, I cut it short, as I dislike to trouble the child's mother.'

( Sahih Bukhari. Book #11, Hadith #675)

Seeking God thru Open Mind.
The Spiritual Journey of an American

by Karin Friedemann

"Mankind was created neither in vain nor by chance: Does man suppose he will be left in futility?" (75:36)

This is the spring of answered prayers for me, it seems, after years of tearful supplication for help escaping the rabbit hole of loneliness, fear, rage, rejection, and exhaustion. Frustrated by life, I had retreated into my mind and disconnected from my body. My life became endless pain caused by generalized weakness from sitting in a chair for years on end without dancing, without reaching upwards. My spine was crushing in on myself. It hurt to walk, to sit, to drive.

It would be a lie to say that a person could just pull themselves out of a funk whether by sheer will or by adherence to religious precepts. Feeling guilty about sin is not always enough to start living more positively. There are usually reasons why we are stuck and those reasons need to be addressed first because chronic weakness is a symptom of disease, not the disease itself. Even if we are diagnosed with "depression," is that the disease defined or just a description?

While Allah is always there, sometimes we need an actual person whose vibrational frequency can help us to elevate our own personal frequency, who can pull us up spiritually. It has to be at the right time and place, and there is a hierarchy of needs. For me, I needed protection and relationship first. Attaining these required courage, patience and trust. Once I had acquired an adequate level of security I found that instead of being totally happy I was actually even more discontent because I found myself at a place where I was now able and wanted to confront some of my problems. I became angry at my situation, tired of being tired.

I prayed to Allah to remind me, to bring me back to the place where I was mentally when I was young and fearless, full of light and hope and energy, back to the time when I was actively seeking enlightenment. My soul yearned to come back inside my body, to enjoy life, not just soothe or else endure my pain. In my youth I was remembering God 24/7. I didn't have a care.

In a divinely inspired moment I quit my desk job without a Plan B. Miraculously, the very next day I was offered a higher paying job doing light housework. Within a week I noticed that my level of physical pain was greatly reduced and that I had increased energy. I was just generally happier. I slept better because my neck didn't hurt. Because I had to get up anyway I started going to the gym in the morning sometimes. It was great to have a boss that hugged me like I saved her life.

I thought about the law of inertia: whatever you are doing you will tend to keep doing it. So, when my job is sitting at the computer, when I am done with my job I will tend to check my Facebook or listen to some youtube videos. Now that I am a housekeeper, when I am done with my job I come home and start straightening up my apartment because that's what I'm geared up to do.

Suddenly I noticed the photos of an Indian woman with a red dot on her forehead displayed all over the house that I was cleaning. She looked very familiar. Then I remembered, when I was 18 I took a trip out to New York to attend a spiritual retreat led by this woman guru.

I had learned about her when I was working at a Palestinian restaurant, Jerusalem Garden in Ann Arbor, Michigan. There was a very tall black man, a mailman, who used to come in there frequently. He used to always pray over his food before he ate it. He belonged to an Indian mystic sect which follows this woman teacher. My boss, a devout Muslim, told me, "He is a good man." This same boss would not hesitate to tell an atheist (when asked) that they were hell-bound. He was happier to see anybody pray than not to pray, regardless of religion.

This man, who was aged 40 whereas I was 16, began to invite me on long walks in the park during which we would discuss spiritual matters. He had taken a vow of celibacy and from what I could tell, his intention was purely to convert me to his way of life. I attended some of the meditation sessions, which were geared toward uplifting the heart. I was familiar with Zen Buddhism and its somewhat severe practices and so found his Hindu sect sort of fluffy but nice.

When I arrived at the ashram in New York, my friend (not the mailman) and I were turned away on account of being scruffy hippies. We had been sleeping in the car and bathing in streams along the way there. "It would be disrespectful to the teacher for us to let you in here with holes in your clothes," they told us. Sincere seekers, we spent two or three hours patching our clothes with needle and thread and returned to the gate, where we were grudgingly given entrance. The ashram itself was quite tacky compared to the opulence of a Hare Krsna temple. The lady guru gave a lecture on how to attain happiness through spiritual contentment with simultaneous video. At the time, I found the experience somewhat vacuous and came to the conclusion that this spiritual sect was a rich person's feel-good religion. I wasn't angry about the way we were treated, for I knew that if we had met the teacher personally, she would have welcomed us.

It just seems like my life came full circle this spring. My new employer told me she had been feeling at wit's end and therefore visited her meditation center, whereupon she felt like the guru was telling her, "Get help." And very next day, I am the help. I truly believe that our prayers and karma and fate all worked in perfect coordination to save us from our immediate problems.

Yesterday I got the urge to garden. Squatting in the dirt for a while was very strenuous for me but when I stood up, almost all my pain was gone. Leg muscles that have been spasming for years suddenly started working again. I can feel them and move them without a loud pop!

I'm not sure if I can trust it but literally the past two days are the first two days without searing pain in my legs in years. God answered my prayers to help me remember the total faith in fate that I enjoyed in my youth when I was a seeker and unsure of the right path. It taught me that God can use many avenues to reach a person, once the person is open to receive.

Next time, I will try to discuss more about how mysticism can complement Islamic theology and practice and its overlap with some aspects of Indian and Chinese philosophy.

China: Government orders Muslims to sell cigarettes and alcohol
by Morgan Winsor
[With thanks to Sis. Hamdiyya, Jamaat al-Muslimeen, Charlotte, North Carolina]

Muslim shops and restaurants in a Chinese village have been ordered to sell alcohol and cigarettes in an effort to weaken Islam's hold on residents in China's Xinjiang region. Shop owners who refuse face closure and prosecution, Radio Free Asia (RFA) reported Monday. It is the latest in a series of anti-Muslim campaigns by Chinese authorities in the name of fighting religious extremism to undermine Islam influence in northwestern China.

Chinese authorities in Laskuy township issued a notice to residents in Aktash village last week saying in part, "all restaurants and supermarkets in our village should place five different brands of alcohol and cigarettes in their shops before [May 1, 2015]." Shopkeepers were also instructed to promote the products in "eye-catching displays." Authorities warned that "anybody who neglects this notice and fails to act will see their shops sealed off, their business suspended, and legal action pursued against them." The notice also said the order was handed down from the top ranks of China's ruling Communist Party.

 Muslims in China

"We have a campaign to weaken religion here and this is part of that campaign," Adil Sulayman, Aktash village party committee secretary, told RFA's Uighur Service. "Since 2012, people have stopped selling alcohol and cigarettes through their businesses. Even those who benefited financially from the practice have given it up because they fear public scorn. That is why [the order was issued]."

Many locals in Aktash and other parts of Laskuy who practice Islam have decided to abstain from drinking and smoking, and selling the products was considered taboo for religious reasons. Sulayman told RFA that authorities in Xinjian viewed nonsmoking Muslims as "a form of religious extremism." The Quran refers to the use of alcohol and any intoxicants or self-destructive practices as a sin.

Government officials and children in the predominately Muslim Xinjiang province have been banned from attending mosques or observing the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, which begins June 17. In some areas, women are banned from wearing face-covering veils and men discouraged from growing long beards, the Washington Post said.

How to bring up Children as good Muslims?
A nine year old stood & Spoke in front of 500 people after juma'

  1. Allah (subhanahu wa taala) provided parents with natural tools and resources to help them rare their children.

  2. A righteous father is the one who honors his children by treating them with honor when no one is looking.

  3. Honor your children and they will honor you.

  4. Love your children and they will love you.

  5. Show your children mercy and they will be merciful.

  6. The love of the parent is natural, powerful and present in every little thing they do or say to their children.

  7. Do not teach your children to look down on others by looking down at their mother or others.

  8. Embrace your children and use the words of encouragement and wisdom with your children such as "I love you", "may Allah be pleased with you", "may Allah bless you" and "I am proud of you".

  9. Raising righteous children is very POSSIBLE....just be a righteous parent.

  10. Learn how to become a story teller, a poet and a singer because you need all these skills when raising your children.

  11. Allah chose you to be a father for your child, meaning he chose you to raise your child.

  12. My son Osama ( 9 years old ) wants to become a Sheikh so I put him to the test yesterday at Jum'ah. He provided the translation for the khutba in front of 500 people. Always involve your children. Treasure every moment with them.

  13. Respect and honor their mom.

President Erdogan Calls Highly Secularized Kurds back to Islam. He is opposed by an "Alevi" Kurd

[This report is excerpted from AFP which is quite hostile to Islam but the facts are clear.---Editor NT]

In an unprecedented gesture by a Turkish politician in recent times, Erdogan waved a copy of the Muslim holy book the Koran translated into Kurdish during a rally this week in the Kurdish-majority southeast.

"Turkey has never seen a president who leads an election campaign with a copy of the Koran in his hand," Professor Ilter Turan of Istanbul's Bilgi University, told AFP.

The ruling Islamic-rooted Justice and Development Party (AKP) -- co-founded by Erdogan and in power since 2002 -- is widely expected to win the June 7 legislative polls but faces an uphill struggle to win the two-thirds majority it needs to change the constitution.

One of the main obstacles could come from the pro-Kurdish People's Democratic Party (HDP) and AKP leaders are bashing the party in the hope of keeping it well under the 10 percent quota needed to win seats in parliament.

 President Erdogan

Erdogan's repeated attacks on the HDP during a tour of the southeast this week were controversial since as head of state he is supposed to stay outside politics.

Photo: President Erdogan holding up a Kurdish translation of the Qur'an.

But his use of religion to deter Turkey's Kurds -- who account for some 20 percent of the population -- from backing the HDP has raised eyebrows in a country whose political system rests on the secular foundations laid by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk at its creation.

"Erdogan is trying to base his campaign on religion and melt down ethnicity-based policies in this particular region in order to boost the AKP's votes," Turan said. "He (Erdogan) fears he will be isolated and weakened if the AKP loses support."

- 'I am neutral' -

Erdogan, who served as premier from 2003-2014 before becoming president, has urged Turkey to send 400 AKP lawmakers to the 550-member parliament so the party can change the constitution into the presidential system he craves.

The HDP lodged an unsuccessful complaint with the election authority this week, accusing Erdogan of violating the president's impartiality and using the Koran as a "propoganda tool".

Erdogan has denied the claims saying: "I am neutral vis-a-vis all parties but naturally one party is closer to my heart." Huda Kaya, the HDP's candidate for Istanbul, said a president supposed to embrace all "cannot deliver a message for only one faith with a Koran in his hand."

"He should treat everyone the same rather than resort to discriminatory language that incites hatred," she told AFP. Promoting a secular agenda, the HDP pledges to abolish the government directorate of religious affairs, as well as mandatory religion courses.

- 'Koran an instrument' -

Erdogan's election to president means this is the first poll where the AKP is not led by the charismatic politician, with the burden for day-to-day campaigning on the bookish Premier Ahmet Davutoglu.

Unlike previous elections where the AKP won all-conquering victories, this election looks tighter with the party expected to win 38-45 percent of votes according to the most recent polls.

Kemal Kilicdaroglu, leader of the main opposition secular Republican People's Party (CHP), accused Erdogan of using the same political tactics as Kenan Evren, the general behind the 1980 military coup and a former president.

Evren, son of an imam who took the helm in the wake of the bloody coup, often recited verses from the Koran in public appearances, pushing for more conservatism in society as a bulwark to leftist extremism.

"Is the Koran something that can be used as an instrument?" asked the CHP leader.

Erdogan lost no time in hitting back. "Mr Kilicdaroglu, I have grown up with the Koran and I live with the Koran."

"What place the Koran has in your life is obvious," he said, in a veiled jibe at the CHP leader's adherence to the Alevi sect.

Necip Taylan, an AKP lawmaker from 2007 to 2011 and retired professor, told AFP that Erdogan's embrace of Islam was genuine.

"It's not new that the president is devout. Religion has always played a part in his life since childhood," he said. But Taylan said he was "concerned in general with the emphasis on religion and sacred values in political debates."



Feeding Hungry Families in Ethiopia:
by Sis. Ashira Naim
[Jamaat al-Muslimeen Baltimore]

We would call this the 2nd leg of this year's feeding program; however our work had more than 2 legs. Therefore suffice it to say we were able to visit more places and stay a longer time and so we definitely had more "struggles." First, we travelled through the now familiar streets of Addis Ababa that lead to the 2 largest masajid in the city. Fortunately, these holy places are not far from each other and one of them can be seen from the hotel. All along the way to either of them are poor, hungry and begging people amongst the general walkers who are workers busy selling their wares, shoppers, and travelers from many parts of the world. Some are students going to and fro school; young boys (who cannot afford to go to school) wearing aprons and delivering orders of food in order that they can afford to eat; There are so many places to eat along the streets, and there are innumerable coffee and tea spots and clothing and appliances and shoes—we're near the piazza! At the piazza there's "everything" for sale—the best made items.

The struggle here is to work the streets in an inconspicuous manner so that the most needy can be discerned, then to give the envelope with 60 birrs ($3) to someone and tell them "it is from Allah" as they spend time bowing and thanking you and to keep moving before you are overwhelmed by a deluge of hungry people. So, on to the next block up the street, you repeat the art of discerning—maybe it's time to sit at the outdoor tea spot and watch a while to see who you will give an envelope. The sun is hot, but when you sit with some tea or coffee or a cold soda pop, you feel refreshed again and back to work—Alhumdulillah!

After 5 or 6 days in Addis for the 2nd time, it's off to a town first called Nazareth and now called Adama, and both names are acceptable. This town is known for its beauty, its warm and breezy weather, and for its natural hot water springs which are said to heal. Many retirees from Addis are building homes in Nazareth. It is a much less-crowded town and, therefore, appears more peaceful. It is in this town that we were rewarded with helpers. The bajaj driver not only drove me to the poorest villages, he also volunteered to help distribute the envelopes, etc. The next day, without my knowledge or permission, the bajaj driver told one man about our visit and distribution in the villages. That man excitedly informed me at the breakfast table in the courtyard of the hotel. At first I felt uneasy as it was not the intention that anyone would be "bragging" about our work. However, when the man explained that he was interested in our work and wanted to be a part of it, I felt a whole lot better and forgiving of the driver.

Downtown Nazareth has its share of poor and hungry walking the streets—many are women and children. The poorest muslim women and children are usually found right outside the masjid walls where vendors settle and/or right outside muslim restaurants—places where they know they will get help. However, it is not uncommon to find a muslim woman in the mix of otherwise unidentified women begging in the streets or living in deplorable conditions, usually accompanied by one or two small children.

We stayed in Nazareth a little over two weeks distributing birrs to as many as we could of the most needy on the streets and in the villages. If you would be interested in helping us with this program, please contact us at Feed The Needy in Ethiopia, Masjid Jamaat al Muslimeen, 4624 York Road, Baltimore, Maryland 21212 for further information. Also you can reach us at .

Please read Holy Quran, Sura Ad-Dhar (Time) 76:7-8
"(7) (The truly virtuous are) they (who) fulfill their vows, and stand in awe of a Day the woe of which is bound to spread far and wide, (8) and who give food-however great be their own want of it-unto the needy, and the orphan, and the captive,"............... (translation by Muhammad Asad)

Weapons Used by US army to kill Afghan Muslims will now be used by Pakistani army to kill Pakistani Muslims. [New Trend editor]

[This info below is from Dawn, a pro-regime paper, so there is no criticism in it.]

WASHINGTON: The United States has handed over 14 combat aircraft, 59 military trainer jets and 374 armoured personnel carriers to Pakistan from the weapons it is leaving behind in the region, reports the Congressional Research Service.

The agency, which prepares internal reports for the US Congress, reported that the weapons supplied to Pakistan were earlier used by American forces in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Take a look: US approves billion-dollar arms sale to Pakistan

The United States is withdrawing its forces from Afghanistan and has offered some of the weapons it is leaving behind to its allies in the region, including Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Arms supplied to Pakistan were earlier used by American forces in Afghanistan and Iraq

Technically, these weapons are classified as "Excessive Defence Articles", i.e. equipment used by the US forces, which can be supplied to allied nations at withdrawal instead of shipping them back to the United States.

The weapons include F-16 armaments including 500 AMRAAM air-to-air missiles; 1,450 2,000-pound bombs; 500 JDAM Tail Kits for gravity bombs; and 1,600 Enhanced Paveway laser-guided kits. All this has cost Pakistan $629 million.

Pakistan has also paid $298 million for 100 harpoon anti-ship missiles, 500 sidewinder air-to-air missiles ($95 million); and seven Phalanx Close-In Weapons System naval guns ($80 million).

Under Coalition Support Funds (in the Pentagon budget), Pakistan received 26 Bell 412EP utility helicopters, along with related parts and maintenance, valued at $235 million.

Pakistan is also receiving military equipment with a mix of its national funds and America's foreign military funding.

These include 60 Mid-Life Update kits for F-16A/B combat aircraft (valued at $891 million, with $477 million of this in FMF).

Pakistan has purchased 45 such kits, with all upgrades completed to date. This include 115 M-109 self-propelled howitzers ($87 million, with $53 million in FMF).

Clear Case of Treachery Against the Muslim Ummah:
CAIR & Blasphemy Against Prophet Muhammad, pbuh.
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen, New York City]

Unbelievable! Pamela Geller and her minions have made a concerted effort to provoke and antagonize us Muslims and the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR's response is: "We reiterate the American Muslim community's support for freedom of speech - even bigoted speech - and its repudiation of terrorism in any form."

Organizations like CAIR, ISNA, MSA, etc have failed the Muslim communities, nationwide. The Holy Qur'an strengthens and emboldens us to act against oppression, not embrace it. These wimps can never convince me that they have ever picked up a Qur'an to read in their life! They have done more than failed us. They have deserted us! Betrayed us!

Imagine contacting these weak "Muslim" organizations to seek refuge from Justice Department harassment only to find that they have the FBI on speed dial! It is like being in a 1970's horror film where you can't tell your friends from your enemies.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has listed American Freedom Defense Initiative as a hate group. I am just as suspicious of the Southern Poverty Law Center but, I digress. It would make sense that the U. S. government would take certain measures against the American Freedom Defense Initiative to ensure the safety of other Americans. But, this organization is working for this government.

I have no faith that the American government will protect the rights of Muslims or the honor of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). When Ex-slaves formed their own villages and towns and made them prosperous, many of these towns were destroyed by White devils who felt that this prosperity threatened White supremacy.

What many people do not understand is that many of these destructive acts were sanctioned by the U.S. government on the state and federal levels!

Do not expect any action to be taken by the government against anyone who defiles Islam. We have to defend ourselves and each other from these despicable acts.

By Tim McLaughlin and Mark Hosenball

BOSTON/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Robert Shillman heads a publicly traded American technology company called Cognex Corp with a market value of $4 billion. He also says he is a big supporter of last Sunday's Prophet Mohammad cartoon contest in Texas that was attacked by two gunmen who opened fire before being shot dead by police.

In a telephone interview with Reuters from his home near San Diego, California, Shillman said America's free speech is under threat. He added that violent attacks on such events are making people fearful and prone to self censorship. Many Muslims regard depictions of the prophet - such as the caricatures displayed at the event - as offensive and against the religion's teachings.

"It was a terrorist attack on the American way of life," says Shillman, who says he isn't anti-Muslim.

Shillman said he remains a director of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, whose Jihad Watch website helped organize the cartoon event in a Dallas suburb with activist Pamela Geller's American Freedom Defense Initiative.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which tracks what it describes as extremist groups, has called the Freedom Center's founder, the right-wing commentator David Horowitz, "the godfather of the anti-Muslim Movement." The Freedom Center says it "combats the efforts of the radical left and its Islamist allies to destroy American values."

The SPLC also calls Geller's AFDI a hate group because of the way it talks about and depicts Muslims.

Horowitz, in an email, called Shillman "an American hero" who is entirely transparent in his agenda. Horowitz also said the SPLC couldn't produce one statement of his own that was anti-Muslim.

Geller did not return messages seeking comment


Sunday's attack had some echoes of the January assault on the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo that left 12 dead in what was said to be revenge for its cartoons of the prophet.

As founder of Natick, Massachusetts-based Cognex , which makes machine vision products that help automate manufacturing, Shillman says he is more outspoken than a typical U.S. corporate leader. "Most CEOs are hired guns and their future depends on what their boards think of them. I don't give a fuck."

The Freedom Center, whose P.O. Box address is in Sherman Oaks, California, runs several blogs and websites, including the online FrontPage Magazine and Jihad Watch. Shillman has funded four fellowships for journalists who have have worked on the FrontPage, which is the center's online journal for news and political commentary. He declined to comment when asked if he helped pay for the cartoon contest. Shillman, who grew up in Boston, says he is an admirer of Geller for her defense of free speech and American democracy. "Blaming Pamela Geller for inciting violence is like blaming a victim of rape for wearing high heels," he said

Dr. Bob, as he calls himself, has the additional title of chief culture officer at Cognex, whose stock has produced a 373 percent return over the past five years. Shillman calls Cognex's 1,300 employees Cognoids and rewards those who reach certain long-service milestones with trips to any one of the Wonders of the World. On their birthdays, U.S. employees get a cake delivered to their homes.

For years, Shillman - who owns about 5 percent of the company's shares - has foregone millions of dollars in salary, bonus and stock options. Cognex donates the money to charity.

Anthony Sun, lead director on the Cognex board, could not be reached for comment.


Shillman has in the past withdrawn support from organizations whose behavior he disagrees with. In 2002, he pulled funding from WBUR, a National Public Radio station in Boston, for what he perceived as anti-Israel sentiment.

His Shillman Foundation has funded a number of conservative and pro-Israeli groups, including the Zionist Organization of America. The ZOA has targeted both academics it perceives have been teaching anti-Israel doctrine and Palestine student groups accused of intimidating Jewish students on U.S. campuses, including a campaign at Shillman's alma mater, Northeastern University in Boston.

Shillman is an emeritus trustee at the university and has given it substantial amounts of money, including $3 million for a classroom building that was then named after him.

How Homosexuality Infiltrated The Black Civil Rights Movement
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen, New York City.]

New York City - Recently, I watched some YouTube videos by the Irritated Genie. He is listed on The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as a hate-monger because he is critical of homosexuality and encourages African unity. The SPLC brags that after outing Ayo Kimathi as the Irritated Genie that he was either terminated from his Department of Home Land Security job or he quit. I am not endorsing him. I don't know much about him, except for his anti-gay YouTube videos.

The video I saw was called "Homosexual" Agenda in Black Church: 1950's - Now. The documentary speaks of Bayard Rustin, who became a confidant to Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Rustin had recently been arrested for public lewdness in Pasedena, CA for having been caught in the back seat of a car with two other men! Somehow, he wound up in Rev. King's company. As Arsenio Hall would say, "Things that make you go hmmmm."

According to clips from the movie, "Boycott", it was Bayard Rustin who pushed for nonviolent responses to savage, racist violence as a way of life. This was a tactic to emasculate Black men and make them defenseless. Of course, the White oppressor could care less about Rev. King but, they would choose a nonviolent sissy over a gun-toting, by any means necessary preaching Malcolm X! Rustin was also one of the founders of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

Another message of the gay male civil rights activist is to promote the erroneous belief that Black men are the only target of racism! I do not know why nor understand how so many Black women, today, still buy into this ridiculous notion. All one has to do is read the Qur'an's many references to Musa & Harun (pbut) to understand that Pharaoh had the male Jews slain because he was up to no good with the Jewish women (Holy Qur'an 28:4).

Novelist James Baldwin gave a 1965 speech where he spoke of the dangers of being Black in America and fighting for one's rights but, he kept ending each statement with, "especially Black men." Then, there are Black women writers, such as an Alice Walker, who want us to believe that Black men are an even bigger threat to Black women than anything else! Men and women should never be divided, especially when they are oppressed. Division among the sexes only serves the oppressor. "Believing men and women are each others protectors" (Holy Qur'an 9:71).

The religious institution and schools are the foundation of a community. When the religious institution falters the community becomes weakened! It is no accident that the Black church has been reduced to nothing more than a foot-stomping minstrel show with gay choir directors entertaining Europeans who come in for the performance. These Europeans are not there to hear the Word or be baptized!

The masjid is in danger of being rendered useless unless we check our "imams!" Martin Luther used to leave notes of criticism on the Catholic church doors in protest to some of their practices. He would later found Protestantism. However, the Holy Qur'an and the Authentic Hadith are perfect guides against corruption in the masjid, if only we use them!

Now, you have shows like the hit Empire and this past week's episode of Black-ish, with gay actress Raven Symone, promoting homosexuality as benign. Each show portrays Black people as being neanderthals while everyone who embraces homosexuality is modernized. Empire is directed by Lee Daniels, a gay Black man.

The most disturbing clip from an Irritated Genie video, Black "Leaders" & the Homosexual Agenda : Yesterday & Today , was one where Minister Farrakhan was seen speaking to a group of people at a Black church and he insinuated that Dr. Khalid Muhammad, who stayed in foster homes as a child, and Malcolm X, who had a difficult relationship with his mother, were gay. It was such an assault on their memory! He even suggested that tool Manning Marable's book, Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention, which accused Malcolm X of being a homosexual, as a credible source! I was very disappointed to hear this message.

But, I remember Dr. Khalid Muhammad stating during a speech how threatened Min. Farrakhan felt about his leadership and how Farrakhan did not even visit him when he was shot during an assassination attempt by one of Imam Warith Deen Muhammad's supporters. Ego has been the downfall of many great men!

NYPD Officer's Memory Praised Ad Nauseum

A week after Baltimore police murder victim, Freddy Gray, is buried a young NYPD officer is shot and killed. Police deaths in the line of duty is rare compared to the amount of people they shoot and kill. May be this was the real reason for memorializing Officer Brian Moore and paying a week long tribute to him during newscasts. His funeral was broadcast live! My sister, who lives in Maryland, told me about these events. I think that amount of exposure was overkill and a way for the media to thumb its nose at the Black community.

There were protests here in New York City, after Freddy Grays' murder. It is no coincidence that this officer's murder has garnered so much attention by the press. This was done to lead all of us to believe that an officer's life is more valuable than the citizens they shoot and kill.
Officers Brian Moore and Erik Jansen were in plain clothes when they saw Demetrius Blackwell, the murder suspect, adjusting something in his waistband. They pulled up beside him when Blackwell allegedly pulled the stolen gun from his waist band and started shooting. (Source:
