He was the compiler of the Qur'an which every Muslim reads today. When the sectarians attacked him in his home, he decided to give his life without shedding any Muslim's blood. His commander, Muawiyyah,r.a., defeated the united fleet of Europe in one day.

Breaking News: Syria

Iranians beaten back but Aleppo pulverized by Russian Air Strikes.

An Iranian brigade which had on September 24 captured Handarat Camp just outside northern Aleppo with bombing support by Russia was driven out by mujahedeen from al-Nusra, FSA and ahrar al-Sham on September 25. This key area is back in Islamic hands.

Eastern Aleppo has been pulverized in five days of steady bombing by Russian jet bombers and Alawite-Shi'ite jets of the Damascus regime. The bombing is directed at civilians. On September 24, eleven children and 8 women were among the 53 civilians killed in the bombing. As we go to the press on September 25, the bombing of Aleppo is continuing with another 23 civilians killed. [The bombing campaign has cut off the city's water supply. Earlier Russians bombed a convoy bringing food supplies to the opposition population area.]

In the Hama area on September 23, Islamic factions of FSA advanced towards Hama and captured several villages. On September 24, the fighters were subjected to 22 air strikes by the Russians.

Hadith of the Week.

Important for Behavior in America:

Don't Talk to People while in the Toilet.

The messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said: Do not talk to each other while defecating nor be looking at each others' private parts, for such behavior displeases Allah.

[Hadith narrated by Abu Saeed al-Khudri, r.a., in the Sunan of ibn Maja, abwab ut-tahara wa sunaneha.]

Comment by Kaukab Siddique: This behavior in "wash rooms" and toilets is very common in America. It might be true of other countries too. It adds to the general atmosphere of semi-nudity and lack of modesty. Islam is a complete way of life and Islamic life style must be adhered to even in the washroom or toilet.

Latest Khutba

 Dr Kaukab Siddique

Why is America in Such a Mess? How can Islam Transform this Country?
How to End Israeli control?

Police atrocities in Charlotte, Tulsa, Baltimore, Ferguson, Cleveland, New York ,,,,, We want Justice.

On September 23, Br. Kaukab Siddique gave the juma khutba at Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in central Baltimore. It was a very mixed gathering: Arabs, Pakistanis, African Americans, Africans but it's a small masjid so here is the outline of the khutba for distribution on line.

Text #1:

إِنَّ اللّهَ يَأْمُرُ£ُمْ أَن تُؤدُّوا¨ الأَمَان¤اتِ إِلَى أَهْلِهَ› وَإِذَا حَكَمْتُ¥ بَيْنَ النَّاسِ أَن تَحْكُمُ¨اْ بِالْعَد¨لِ إِنَّ اللّهَ نِعِمَّا يَعِظُكُ¥ بِهِ إِنَّ اللّهَ كَانَ سَمِيعًا بَصِيرًا

Surely Allah commands you to make over trusts to their owners and that when you judge between people you judge with justice; surely Allah admonishes you with what is excellent; surely Allah is Seeing, Hearing.

[The Quran 4:58]

Text #2

[A Christian ruler Heracles asked the then pagan Abu Sufian about Muhammad pbuh]: What does this man command you? Abu Sufian answered: "He says: Worship Allah alone and do not make anyone an associate of Allah in His Power and authority and give up the beliefs and ways of your forefathers . And he commands us to pray , be truthful and chaste in our ways and help those near related to us......" [Fragment of an extensive hadith in Sahih Bukhari, narrated by Ibn Abbas, r.a.]

  1. Before we look at the police atrocities across the country, let us look at the foundational problems in the daily lives of our people.

  2. Food, water and air are polluted.

    1. Millions eat unhealthy food at fast food places. Others buy food with additives in it. Meat comes from animals which are fed with dangerous products.

    2. Water is polluted as we saw in Flint, Michigan. Even "safe" water has traces of metals which can have slow but cumulative effects. The rich segments of society waste water resulting in serious water shortages.

    3. The air is full of the emissions of millions of cars [though now considerably reduced]. Toxic wastes are pumped into the air. Cigarette smoking has gone down after thousands died of it but many don't know that second hand smoke can be slowly fatal.

    [The Prophet, pbuh, did not want even the smell of garlic and onions in the mosque, let alone cigarette smell in clothes.]

    People wonder why there is so much and so many kinds of cancer.

  3. Lack of free health care. If you don't have a good job, you don't have good health care or any health care. Those who need it the most cannot afford it.

  4. Lack of free higher education. Countries which we consider backward in many cases have free higher education. America spends a billion dollars a WEEK on war in Afghanistan and Iraq. A $38 billion million military package is going out to "Israel" in addition to what it already gets.

  5. Drugs are pouring into the country. Why don't the authorities stop them? Why are liquor licenses given out? Why are there no attempts to stop the easy and seemingly attractive sale of liquors.

  6. Most importantly there is no justice. If you don't have a good lawyer, you can get a heavy sentence. Almost two million people are in prison.

    1. Look at the condition of Muslims here. If you try to help people who are wounded or orphaned in US bombing of Muslims in Somalia, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, you will be treated like a terrorist.

    2. Police shootings of Black and poor youths are becoming routine. The men in uniform shoot to kill if you are Black. Injustice has become so rampant, if you try to run away from police, you will be shot down.

    3. Ask those who know: Malcolm X who was murdered because he spoke the truth, Imam Jamil al-Amin who stopped drugs in his area of Atlanta is now in endless prison.

    4. Families of imprisoned people, be they Muslims, Black or Hispanic are not allowed to appear on TV to speak about their loved ones.

    5. The opponents of the government are demonized on TV. There is NO RIGHT OF REPLY. The role of the media is to stop any unified front against oppression.

Islam is the only solution for America's problem. You have a right to speak out under the First Amendment. You have the DUTY to speak out under the orders of the Qur'an. Do not incite to violence or break the law, but denounce oppression, Zionism, Israeli control of America and the militarization of the police.

We must have a united front against the media. Notice they will not allow any media coverage to any authentic Islamic opponent of the war, the bombing, the drones, the surveillance, the networks of Jewish Zionists and Christian Zionists and puppet Muslim groups.

Adopt the preventive health advice of the Prophet, pbuh. [Tibb e nabawi.] He ate little and hardly any meat. Wash your hands. Pray five times a day and you will avoid the perils of stress which have made millions of people sick and depressed.

Read the Qur'an and the hadith regularly every day. No one can defeat the Word of Allah and the example of the Prophet, pbuh.


Remembering Maulana Maudoodi

September 22, 1979. Sayyid Abul 'Ala Maudoodi, the greatest Islamic scholar of the 20th century C.E. passed away. He taught an entire generation of western educated Muslims that Islam is a COMPLETE WAY of LIFE, not a bunch of rituals. He faced the forces of military dictatorship, sectarian religion and secular materialism and gave them a resounding defeat through sheer scholarship and self-sacrifice. The Islamic movement in Pakistan which has often neutralized rulers controlled by America THROUGH PEACEFUL MEANS is a living tribute to Maudoodi's uncompromising but rational interpretation of the Qur'an and the Hadith.

Our America: New York

Injustice in New York's Notorious Garner Case: The Shocking Insider Story
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]

New York City - Ramsey Orta, the young friend who took a the video of Eric Garner's confrontation and murder by New York City cops, is facing a four year prison sentence for weapons and drug possession. People have asked why Eric Garner's family, settled for a $7 Million settlement in their wrongful death suit against the city, did not help Ramsey. However, the Garner family has not received a penny of that settlement money because there is a love child involved and a judge is determining how much Eric Garner's heirs are supposed to get.

The case against Ramsey Orta and the circumstances surrounding his arrest were always suspect. Supposedly, he was caught with a .22 pistol, which is not the weapon of choice for today's youth. That is a Saturday Night Special from the old days, like the 1960s and even 1970s. People do not always settle out of guilt. Sometimes, their attorneys tell them to settle because fighting those charges is too daunting a task and too risky to allow a jury to decide their fate.

Ramsey believes that the NYPD is out for revenge. I, myself, am fearful that something may happen to him while in prison the same way it happened to Adam 'Abdul-Hakim (Larry Davis). In 1985, all 'Abdul-Hakim did was tell some corrupt cops he no longer wanted to sell drugs for them. Their response was to send five cops to his apartment to murder him. This was all discovered during his trial but, a corrupt judge sentenced him to 25 years for weapons possession.

During the first week of his stay at Riker's Island Prison, some corrections officers beat Adam "Abdul-Hakim in the back with their night sticks thereby paralyzing him for life. When he was close to getting out, his Muslim brothers were all put in 23 hour lock down for unknown reasons, while a crazed prisoner was allowed to pounce on him stabbing 'Abdul-Hakim to death. Many people, including retired police detectives, saw this as an act of revenge by the NYPD - A nearly 30 year vendetta! These people are so patient, unlike the ku klux klan, they lay in wait and plot your death years in advance.

It could get pretty bad for Orta in the New York prison system especially after he sent this tweet in response to the killings of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge, earlier this year: "Cry me a river," Orta tweeted after the Dallas massacre. "Dead police makes my day one hell of a blessing. 559 MURDERED THIS YEAR ALONE!! F--- YOUR DEAD PIGS & YOUR SYSTEM!!"

Ramsey Orta begins his prison sentence in October 2016. Right now, he is staying with his wife in Las Vegas, NV until it is time to return. A judge was benevolent enough to allow him that privilege. As it stands, the only person present during Eric Garner's death that has been sent to prison is the person who took the video of the murder rather than the people who caused it.

Ramsey Orta has pending lawsuits against New York City for NYPD misconduct, which involves multiple arrests for drug possessions that were, eventually, dismissed. Also, he, along with nineteen inmates, have a lawsuit alleging that Riker's correction officers put rat poison in his food, during one his stays at Riker's, after an arrest. In all, he is suing for over $30 million dollars.

India Threatening War to Divert Attention from its Atrocities in Kashmir.
Pakistani Women United with men in the Struggle against Oppression.

Jamaate Islami Leader Sirajul Haq Addresses Women.

by Qaiser Sharif

LAHORE, Sep. 24; Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that India was creating war atmosphere to divert the world attention from her brutalities in Kashmir but in case of an attack, she would be facing a thousand times stronger Pakistan than in 1965.

Addressing the JI Youth festival under the aegis of the JI women's wing at Aiwan e Iqbal on Saturday, he stressed upon the world community to take notice of India's war plans and her threats to Pakistan in order to save the region from the horrors of war.

The festival was attended by a large number of female students from schools, colleges and universities.

He however, warned that an India- Pakistan war now would not be confined to the two countries but its flames would spread in all directions.

Therefore, he said, the world should not sit idle but should take practical steps to restrain India and prevent a war. At the same time, he said, India should come out of war hysteria and hold meaningful talks on the Kashmir issue.

Sirajul Haq said that India had been facing extremism since long. Hindu fanatics were treating the minorities of Muslims, Sikhs and Christians worse than animals. On the economic front, India was suffering from worst type of poverty and millions of her citizens were forced to go to sleep with empty bellies. Yet, Indian Premier Modi was spitting venom against this country to conceal his failures.

He also exhorted the women emulate the golden example of Syeda Fatimah (RA) and Syeda Aishah ( RA) and make their contribution to the struggle for the Islamic revolution.

The JI chief said that the Pakistani nation was determined to face any enemy challenge like one man. He said that in the 1965, even the Pakistani women had come out of their homes with batons and lathis in their hands to deal with the enemy and added that no enemy could defeat a nation whose women and children were imbued with such a spirit of jihad and love for martyrdom, he added.

Sirajul Haq deplored that while the enemy was preparing for war, the rulers in Islamabad were busy in amassing wealth. A system based on injustice and exploitation was going on in the country, the masses were deprived of basics of life but the ruling elite was enjoying the luxuries of life.

He said that education and health were not among the priorities of the government and the rulers had not built a single big hospital in the country during their rule, where they could get proper treatment.

Sirajul Haq told the gathering that the JI would ensure implementation of the constitutional provisions related to women's rights. At the same time, he said, the rights of the minorities' women must also e protected.

We Appeal to Canada to have Mercy on Momin who never Hurt Anyone
Mohmmad Momin Khawaja, Canadian Prisoner Seeking Human Rights Protection
Investigative Study of the Suffering of a Muslim prisoner in Canada.

Momin Khawaja's parole hearing was legally due in 2014 but it did not happen. They scheduled in August 2016 but postponed it until October 2016. In view of this, there is systematic and planned series of articles appearing in the Canadian news media including few videos - most likely sponsored by the intelligence apparatus and trying to falsify the facts of the actual case, alleging acts of violence which were not committed by Momin Khawaja, poisoning the public thinking and trying to undermine his prospects for a fair parole hearing and its favorable outcome.

M. Momin Khawaja, 23, Canadian citizen, a fresh graduate from Algonquin College of Science and Technology is an innocent victim of the politically indoctrinated justice system. The trial judge based on the evidence sentenced him to a total of 10.5 with 5 years for parole eligibility. The theories and perceptions of crimes under the anti Terrorism Act - all happened overseas except one and none involved any violence or threat of violence in Canada or against anybody anywhere on the planet, and included a charity donation approximately $859. to an Afghan displaced women and children fund, making of cell phone jammer and attending one day camp overseas. The trial judge acquitted him from the "terrorism" charge in the London plan Khyam activities. Subsequently, the Ontario Appeal Court and the Supreme Court Appeal, contrary to the original trial verdict, increased the sentence from 10.5 year (5 years for arole) to a Life and 24 years- 10 years for parole eligibility without any hard evidence, indeed, a slow death for a crime that our son did not commit nor he was charged with.

The irony of legal injustice was clearly demonstrated by few of the judges of the Supreme Court at the appeal hearing on June 11, 2012. The Honorable Mr. Justice LaBel of the Supreme Court of Canada addressed the focal issue and asked the Prosecution "Why should M. Momin Khawaja be sentenced to Life and 24 years when he did not commit this crime nor he was charged with this crime." The Prosecution replied that "terrorism should be viewed in a broader global context and to send a harsh message to all prospective terrorists." This was not an evidence-based charge to punish M. Momin Khawaja for Life- 24 years sentence nor did he commit this crime according to the official record.

On January 15, 2012 at the SHU, Ste Annes des Plaines, Quebec, another inmate attacked Momin with boiling water and caused severe life-threatening injuries and burnt good parts of his body. As painful and humiliating that senseless and unprovoked attack was, Momin told his grieving parents that his pain and suffering turned him toward more reflection and toward his character with compassion and forgiveness, a higher level of character for the good of mankind. Yet since that horrible incident, we have serious continuing concerns about his health recovery and safety.

For Three Years Kept in Solitary Confinement: After this horrible attack and in sharp contravention to the international law of humanitarian values and Canadian laws of dealing with the prisoners, Momin Khawaja was kept in a solitary confinement for continuously three (3) years. The Minister of Justice and Commissioner of Correctional Service were informed and were asked to remedy the situation but took no action.

Torture in Prison: The affidavit by M. Momin Khawaja dated January 12, 2015, clearly states that he is being tortured by highly sophisticated biotechnology- nanotechnology systems at the prison. During parents' visits, Momin Khawaja explained and exhibited most unusual sadness and feelings of tormenting pains . The reason being that according to his experience at the segregation cell, he is being tortured 24/7 by some invisible program in operation at the SHU. He complains of severe pains and anguish felt on different parts of the body and often systematic mind control measures to undermine his human personality, integrity and credibility. This is an alarming development previously unknown. Based on his specific experience in recent days, he believes that the authorities are using some technology-based sophisticated torture techniques to create artificial pains and as if he is being stabbed and implied to cause further lifelong damages to his mind, abilities and survival as a human being. This pattern of torture corresponds to the media reports furnished by the prisoners at the Guantamo Bay Prison in the US.

In reality, M. Momin Khawaja did not commit any crime of violence or acts of terrorism against anybody anywhere in this world. He had no criminal profile. The accusations against him (happened overseas) are a laughing stock in legal determination. Yet, the prosecution used "suspicion" as law and interpreted theoretical hearsay and charged him with crimes which defy logic and reason. Some of the Supreme Court judges were biased and racist to sentence him to a Life and 24 years. After more than 12 years, he is asking for a fair and overdue parole hearing to return to normal life, continue and complete the graduate education at Laurentian University (Ontario), and prove to be a worthy law-abiding citizen of Canada
