Hadith of the Week

Individual Excellence is good but Allah's blessing is for the Collective.

"From ibn abi Khalid from Qais : Once Abu Bakr, r.a., stood up to give the khutba. After praising Allah and Hus messenger, he said 'O people! you recite this verse of the Qur'an : 'O you who believe, Guard your own souls. . If you follow right guidance, no hurt can come to you from those who stray. The goal of you all is to Allah. It is He that will show you the truth of all that you do.' I heard the messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be on him, say: When people see wrong doing and do not try to change it, ALL of them will be covered with punishment from Allah.

[Hadith #1 in Musnad of Ahmad ibn Hanbal. Also in the Sunan of Abu Dawood and Tirmidhi.]

Comment by Kaukab Siddique:
Islam works both ways. At the individual level we must pray and fast but it will not save us if we do not try to change the society in which we live and in which evil is rampant. Work together. Join an Islamic organization. Charitable activities are positive but not without opposition to wrong doing.

Note: The verse quoted by Abu Bakr, r.a., is 5:105


Jamaat al-Muslimeen Activity in Newark, Delaware.

53 People given 6 Page Document.
Khutba on knowledge.

On October 21, after Juma' at masjid Ibrahim in Newark, a 6-page Jamaat document was given to 53 Muslims, mostly Arab Americans and Bangladeshi Americans.

The khutba was about the Islamic teachings on seeking knowledge. The imam, Arabic speaker with reasonably good English, pointed out that we are sending our children to achieve scientific and worldly knowledge but we are neglecting the acquisition of Islamic knowledge.

As most people here come in their cars, city police actively help with the traffic. The policemen are quite popular with the worshippers because the police help them to cross the street which has fast moving traffic.

After prayers one can go for lunch to a Pakistani halal eating place run by a Punjabi widow which is rough and ready or a Bangladeshi fancy halal restaurant which is owned by a strictly hijabi sister.

The 6-page Jamaat document given to 53 contained the following items:

  1. Russian bunker bombs shake Aleppo. Turkey attacks ISIS. Near Damascus and Homs, ISIS advancing.

  2. Iraq: Massive Shi'ite and Kurdish Communist armies attacking Mosul with US and British air forces.

  3. Spoof on elections. Is America so sexually pure that it can attack Trump on his loose talk?

  4. Nadrat Siddique in Baltimore marathon supports Black victims of police. Black lives matter.

  5. Khutba on sects among Muslims & how the West labels Muslims: [Dr. Kaukab Siddique]

  6. Visiting a friend from Pakistan and the special gift of books he brought.

Huge Jamaate Islami Rally.
Followed by Large Women's Gathering

by Qaiser Sharif

LAHORE, Oct. 22; Ameer , Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the Prime Minister was shedding tears not on the despondency of the masses but on his fate.

Addressing a historic Ijtema organized by the JI Khyber P. at Aza Khel, Naushera on Saturday, he however said that if the Prime Minister's hands were clean, he had no reason to be worried. He wondered why the Prime Minister did not think of the lot of the masses during the last thirty years.

The JI chief said that for the last seventy years, the country had been ruled by the corrupt elite who had plundered trillions from the public money while the man in the street remained did not get clean drinking water.

He said the entire system of accountability was ineffective as the NAB laid hands on the small fish while the big guns went scot free. He said that the solution of all the problems of the nation and the country lay in the adoption of the Islamic system. However, he said, that the Islamic system could not be brought about through wishes and hollow slogans, as it required sacrifices and sustained public struggle.

Earlier, while addressing a large women gathering at the spot, Sirajul Haq said that Islam alone has the message of freedom for the women folk as the West had deprived the women of all her rights and made her a market commodity. He said that while all other civilizations treated the womenfolk as the root cause of evil and agent of Satan and treated them with hatred, Islam gave them respect and dignity as mothers, sisters, daughters and queen of the house.

 Jamaate Islami Rally

The gathering was also addressed by the JI women wing chief Durdana Siddiqui, Member, Islamic Ideology Council, Dr Samiha Raheel Qazim, MNA Aisha Syed and others.

Sirajul Haq said that the womenfolk had an active role in the establishment of Pakistan. However, he said, the women were being exploited in the country even now and they did not have right to inheritance, education, employment and health. There was none to raise voice for the women. He said the westernized NGOs were trying to demolish the Islamic culture and civilization in the name of women emancipation and driving them out of homes and Hijab.

The JI chief said that the women folk had great role in the human culture and history and their role in all historic events was prominent. He said that the ritual of SAEE in Hajj was actually following in the footsteps of a lady. He said that right from the story of ADAM, up to the Karbala tragedy, and in the creation of Pakistan, the women had distinct role. The women were playing leading role in Kashmir, Palestine and Afghanistan, he added.

He said that the JI on coming to power, would set up women university at division level and all those who did not give their womenfolk the right of inheritance would be sent to jail. Interest free loans would be advanced to the women to enable them look after their children and earn their living in a respectable way. He said that the respect and dignity of the women folk would be fully protected and the President and the Prime Minister would be the custodian of their rights.

Sirajul Haq exhorted the JI women worker to carry Jamaat's message to every house. He said that the west wanted to demolish the mosques and madrissahs, therefore, the Muslim women should convert their homes into madrissahs for the teaching of Islam and the Quran. He said that if the womenfolk continued their struggle, the Khyber province would be centre of an Islamic government.

Islamic movement's success not a distant dream

LAHORE, Oct. 21; Deputy chief of the Jamaat e Islami, Rashid Naseem, has said that the Islamic movement's success in the country was not a distant dream as an overwhelming majority of the population desired the enforcement of the Shariah.

Addressing an Ijtema of the JI Women wing from Lahore at Mansoroa, he said that according to the survey by PEW and PILDAT, eighty per cent of the people in the country wanted the Shariah rule. Besides, 65 per cent of the youth wanted supremacy of the constitution which declared Allah Almighty as the Supreme Sovereign and also ensured that no law repugnant to the holy Quran and the Sunnah would be enacted.

Alawite-Russian Bombing of Civilians Renewed, Battles around and in Aleppo.

IS fighting Hizbullah/Shias near Homs and Deir ex Zor. Jaysh al-Islam fighting Assad's troops near Damascus.

FSA volunteers reject Russian "invitation" to leave Aleppo.

After two days of a bombing pause by Russia, the bombing of civilian populations in Islamic areas has been renewed. Every air raid results in civilian deaths and injuries. The Russians after publicizing its "cease fire" propaganda did not allow any food supplies or medicines to enter Aleppo.

Areas of complete Islamic control in Idlib and Hama province and in southern Syria like Daraa and parts of Quneitra province are now coming under heavy Russian bombing.

Hizbullah and the Iranian led Shias are trying to invade the Islamic areas of Aleppo but have again been forced to retreat. Within Aleppo the Alawite Shias and the Communist Kurds, who have enclaves in this vast city, are clashing with FSA volunteers in eastern and southern Aleppo.

Assad very much wants the populations and the Islamic fighters to leave Aleppo so that he can proclaim victory. To this end Russian jets and Iranian artillery have hit hospitals, bakeries , electricity centers and water works, bringing civic life to a halt. Hundreds, including children, have been killed in the bombing; however the people refuse to leave and are supporting the FSA volunteers.

Meanwhile in north central Syria, after hitting Islamic State centers, Turkey is hitting the SDF, a Kurdish communist and secularist Syrian organization. More than 200 SDF fighters have been killed in heavy Turkish tank and artillery fire.

Turkey is setting up a safe zone in northern Syria and is crushing all who come in its way, be it Islamic State or the SDF. FSA's factions in Merea are advancing under Turkish fire cover.

Heavy fighting is also reported from around Damascus as the Assad regime keeps trying to advance. The latest Assad advance was met by a counter thrust by Jaysh al-Islam group which forced the Alawites to retreat but caused casualties on both sides.

IS has the upper hand in Der ez Zor and Hasakeh but no significant advances owing to Russian bombing in the South and American bombing in the north.


Second Invasion of Iraq: Mosul under Assault. Only 4000 defenders but they are fighting back.

From October 17 to 23, a huge Shiite army from the south and thousands of Kurds from the east attacked Mosul. With America bombing Mosul around the clock, it looked like a walk over but the ISIS mujahideen are putting up stiff resistance. They have ceded three small towns where they were very open to American air attacks but the invading armies are still nowhere near Mosul.

On October 21 and 22, a small ISIS mujahideen unit entered Kirkuk and wrought havoc, killing 80 and wounding 135 Baghdad security forces, police, militia and officials. The regime is in shock.

On October 22, Turkey stabbed the Islamic State in the back and used its artillery to help Peshmarga Kurds to capture a small but strategic town to the north of Mosul from where reinforcements could have reached ISIS defenders.

Hardly any civilians have left Mosul despite the daily bombing.

ISIS seems to be playing with the Kurds, sending up tiny drones to surveil the attacking forces.


Two Americans killed by Taliban infiltrator [October 19]

A gunman in an Afghan army uniform has opened fire on a group of US soldiers, killing at least two Americans, including a civilian, in Afghanistan's capital, Kabul.

NATO said in a statement later on Wednesday that "one US service member and one US civilian died as a result of wounds sustained in Kabul".

The shooter was killed after an exchange of fire in the Rishkhor neighbourhood of Kabul, which houses an Afghan special forces training centre, according to NATO and Waziri.

[NT note: Americans working with the military are listed as civilians. Civilians working with the Taliban are listed as "militants" and killed. ]


Boko Haram hit Nigerian army, Hard! [October 23]

Officers: 83 Nigerian soldiers missing in Boko Haram attackSome 83 Nigerian soldiers are missing in action since Boko Haram Islamic extremists attacked a remote military base in the northeast, senior army officers said Sunday. The soldiers were unable to fight back and fled because Boko Haram had superior fire power, the officers told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to give information to reporters. Army spokesman Col. Sani Kukasheka Usman reported last week that "some" soldiers were missing and 13 wounded when the insurgents on Oct. 17 attacked their base in Gashigar village, on the border with Niger.

Public Prosecutor who was unjust dies:
Should we learn from Prosecutor's death or Mourn?
Learnig from Obama's Election Legacy.
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]

New York City - It was announced on public access cable show Community Cop that controversial District Attorney Kenneth Thompson passed away from cancer at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital on October 9th. He kept his battle with cancer a secret but, he remained away from his office for over two months during treatments. He was 50 years old.

Although members of the Community Cop panel were respectful of Kenneth Thompson's passing, they stood their grand with a caller who criticized their lack of praise for some of his other accomplishments. Panel members have always been critical of how he (mis)handled the circumstances surrounding his client, the sexual assault victim of International Monetary Fund leader, Dominique Strauss Kahn and how he never challenged Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance's prosecutorial misconduct, as well.

The biggest stab to the back was when DA Thompson recommended probation, not jail time, for former Police Officer Peter Liang in the killing of young father Akai Gurley, whose only crime was walking down a dark stairway with his family.

Out of respect for his family panel members did not vehemently question or attack his decisions. He had done some good in overturning the convictions in cases involving crooked police detectives. But, I lament the fact that no charges have been filed against these detectives for betraying the public's trust and robbing young men of so many years of their freedom.

We will see if his Chief Assistant, Eric Gonzalez, will work for the people and defend them against tyrant police officers as interim district attorney. Governor Cuomo has the power to choose a permanent replacement but, will hold-off on that decision, for now.

What ALL Voters Should Learn From Pres. Obama's Political Campaigns

One thing we should all learn is how corrupt politics in America really is and has become!

Pres. Obama used the Black vote twice and NEVER gave anything back to his voters. While Blacks were being lynched all over America at the hands of rogue police officers, President Obama was working tirelessly to make sure that (White) gays were getting what they wanted: Gay marriage rights.

Why? Did that many gays vote for Pres. Obama? No! The Black vote ALONE secured Obama's legacy in the White House...twice!

But, it is no longer the voter the politician is loyal to anymore. It is the campaign contributors politicians are loyal to nowadays. These are the people paying for those political campaign ads, among other things.

Once people realize that Israel will always be the focus, they should understand that division among party lines is just a smoke screen. Every politician, regardless of party affiliation, must support the Welfare State of Israel.

What about the Electoral College? Many Americans do not understand how the voting process works. No matter who gets voted in by the popular vote, the electoral votes ULTIMATELY decide who becomes President and Vice President. What is the electoral college? It is a process set up by the "Founding Fathers" where select politicians vote separately for the President and Vice President. There are a total of 538 electorates and there needs to be 270 electoral votes for one to become President.

These electors represent every state in the Union. How the elector is selected differs from state to state. This process makes voting in America rather murky, especially since the electoral vote has so much power. The "Founding Fathers" wanted to prevent uneducated voters from choosing a candidate simply because of looks or anything else superficial, such as race. A prime example of the electoral vote determining the President of the United States was in the year 2000, when people became angered over George W. Bush becoming President over Senator Al. Gore, who won a majority of the popular vote.

The electoral vote takes away the people's voting power or threatens it if it does not agree with the popular vote. Yet, you still have Old Negroes such as Sirius Radio show host Joe Madison cursing at Blacks, such as Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, who question voting in America. There is still an effort to push Blacks to register to vote when it has already been demonstrated that our voting power, which is already very strong, especially for the Democrats, has not helped us at all. This is a sad case of following tradition and believing in some one else's power rather than your own abilities.

Shiaism came from Ibn Saba's Cult, not from Quran and Authentic Hadith.
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

As we look at the Quran and the authentic hadith in Sihah sittah, it is obvious that shia ideas of the superiority of Ali, r.a, over other sahaba is nowhere to be found. The Quran and authentic hadith were accepted by thousands of the sahaba and the two generations of Muslims who followed, known as the tabain and the tubba tabain. Nowhere do we find the divine and superior attributes of Ali propagated by shias. All the thousands of sahaba could not have united to start a conspiracy against Ali. It was physically impossible in that age and time to communicate on such a large scale. Even travel from Makkah took three days and nights.

So why is there such a huge difference between shia and sunni doctrines and worldview. The Islamic narratives, particularly the carefully scrutinized sahih hadith, do project Ali, r.a., as a brave and pious supporter of the Prophet, pbuh, similar to many other Companions of the Prophet, pbuh. No hadith, among the thousands which are known as authentic refer to Ali as superior to all the sahaba .

So from where did the miraculous personality of Ali come into circulation when no agreement or conspiracy among thousands of Sahaba leading to that conclusion can be traced by any scholar.

The most tragic event in the history of Islam, the murder of Usman, r.a., led to upheaval and tumult and war among the Muslims themselves. The "rebels" who murdered Usman, r.a., were well organized and they came from several cities on the margins of the Islamic domain. Tabari, the great Muslim historian wrote about a shadowy figure of Jewish origin who had taken a Muslim name and was known as Abdullah ibn Saba. He was busy moving from city to city and spreading rumors and outright lies against Usman, r.a. The ideas which came to be known in their totality as "shiaism" apparently came from Ibn Saba and his supporters, a cult which came to be known as the Sabaiyyah.[2]

Shias are aware that if Ibn Sabah is recognized as the originator of Shia beliefs, at least in the seminal form, it would destroy Shiaism, coming from a probable Jew who tried to start a religion in total opposition to Islam.

Shias have spent their energies in trying to discredit Ibn Saba and sometimes to even deny his existence.

Shias attack Sayf bin Umar from whom Tabari narrated the report on Ibn Saba. They use the criticism of Sayf by the scholars of hadith who do not accept his credibility. The problem with this argument by Shias is that historical narrations are not judged by the strict standards of hadith. Sayf cannot be accepted in hadith narration but as a journalist he was found acceptable by Tabari who was himself a top notch scholar. Tabari also narrated the story of Karbala and by strict standards of hadith, the Karbala narrative cannot be accepted.

It's essential to note that Tabari was writing in the Abbasid era which was very friendly to Shias and the Ummayad rule was over. So, Tabari was not under anti-Shia pressure from any ruler to accept the narrative of Sayf. [1]
He is known for his honesty as a historian.

Also, Sayf himself was not narrating his own views but was simply transmitting what was known of the Sabaiyyah myths from his sources and from the pro-Ali cults as such.

What was spread about the cult of Ali, r.a., by Ibn Saba was developed by others after Karbala, such as by Mukhtar who spent his resources and his life in taking revenge for the tragic murder of Hussain, r.a., ibn Ali, r.a.

After Mukhtar came others who developed shia myths seminally touted by Ibn Saba and his followers, the Sabaiyyah.

These myths are now central to Shiism and are totally foreign to the Quran and authentic hadith narrated by sahaba.
Here are some of them:

  1. Ali did not die but was taken up God. Some shias believed that he was God.

  2. The hero not dying will come back to fill the world with justice.

  3. The disappeared hero who will come back is now known to all shias as the Mahdi who will reappear at the end of time.

  4. The myth makers who came after ibn Saba and Mukhtar developed the idea that the Imam in the next generation must be appointed by the Imam In the existing generation. All these imams were supposed to be infallible.

  5. One of these ibn Saba type activists secretly gave shia support to the Abbasids who later destroyed the Ummayad dynasty. Most of the imams were protected by the Abbasid caliphs. Thus support for despotic rulers became typical of shiaism.

The followers of ibn Saba wanted a leader divinely appointed or prophetic. Mukhtar claimed that the surviving son of Ali, r.a., Muhammad ibn al-Hanfiyyah was that divinely appointed leader. Muukhtar called him the Mahdi, an appellation which would become central to Shi'aism with the passage of time.

The idea of Ibn Saba that Ali, r.a., did not die was continued by Mukhtar. He obtained a chair in which, he claimed, a whiff of the spirit of Ali was still there. [3]

The Shias being followers of a jew Ibn, Saba, openly borrowed from Judaism and this borrowing came out openly in the case of Mukhtar who stated clearly that the chair of Ali was like the Ark of the Covenant God had with the Jews.

Ibn al Hanfiyyah did not affirm the claims Mukhtar made in his behalf but that did not bother Mukhtar who continued with his claims. [Notice that Ali, Hasan and Hussain, r.a., too did not preach anything called Shiaism. The Shias like to tie their cult to prominent religious figures.]

Mukhtar came near to claiming to be a prophet himself and his followers looked up to him because he was able to kill the murderers of Hussain, r.a., However when Mukhtar defied the Caliphate established by Abdullah ibn Zubayr, r.a., , he was badly defeated. Unfortunately for him he had promised that God would give him victory over the caliphate of Zubair, r.a. When he was badly defeated, he came up with the theory that God had told him that He [God] had changed his destiny. Thus he came near to, if not actually,proclaiming his prophethood.

After Mukhtar, the ideas of Ibn Saba were continued by a Shia sect known as the Kaisaniyyah, one of the names of Mukhtar, who also proclaimed that Ali's son Ibn al-Hanfiyyah was the Mahdi. [4]

Mainstream Islam has deep respect for Ali, r.a., and his sons owing to authentic hadith narrations, some of them from Abu Huraira, r.a., whom the Shias hate in an irrational way. [5] However no Muslim in the early generations believed that Ali and his sons were superior to the sahaba, r.a.

{To be continued, inshaAllah.]


  1. Abbasid rule began in 750 c.e. Tabari was born in 838 c.e., . and lived for 86 years.

  2. Tabari was not the only scholar who affirmed the existence of Ibn Saba and his influence among the shias. See this independent scholar: Ibn al-Jahiz in Kitab al-Bayan wa al-Tabyin.

  3. Tarikh al-Umam wa al-Muluk by Tabari.

  4. Murawuj al-Dhahab by Masudi. , a shia scholar. The concept of Mahdi does not exist in the Quran. There are 13 "hadith" in Sunni narratives all of which have been debunked as fabricated by Ibn Khaldun in his Muqaddimmah. Of course these do not teach the Mahdi concept as taught by the Shias.

  5. See the collected hadith of Abu Huraira, r.a., in the Musnad of Ahmad ibn Hanbal.


Institutional Collapse of the Muslims & the Worst Betrayal of Islam

Dr Firoz Mahboob Kamal

Muslims' vision and institutions

Making a man proper human has always been the most difficult as well as the most massive task in human history. An animal can be a full animal on its own; it doesn't need any institutional care or education. But a man can't grow up as a true human in an institutional void. In deprivation of humanising intervention, man turns animal, too. Hence, it is very crucial to build humanising institution. Only a value-adding institutional process can help men and women to grow up with human values. Humanity, morality, spirituality and other higher values rise or die in people depending on the quality and intensity of investment on such institutions. Families, mosques, madrasas, schools, universities and other institutions can't do the job properly unless the state institutions and those who run the state play the role with higher conscience, knowledge and morality. The ruling elites are the people who drive the institutions. They can restrain, enhance, corrupt and stop the inputs; thus, they play the decisive role. The quality and intensity of the humanising process depend entirely on the political and ideological motive of these ruling elite. With the evil people in the helm of affairs, these institutions too, turn into most corruptive and dehumanising industry on earth. To run their evil operations, the wicked rulers like Pharaoh, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, George W Bush and others got the supply of their required manpower from these evil industry. Hence it was the greatest wisdom of the prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) and his great companions that they gave topmost priority on freeing these institutions from the devilish occupation. Otherwise, all the Islamising efforts of the prophet and the sacrifices of his companions might have gone in vain -as happened with many prophets and their companions.

Islam needs its own type of people and institutions to promote its mission and vision. A plane can't fly with the body of a bus. Hence, Islam has its own model of institution at all levels. It has a specific model of state, too; it is khilafa. It is unthinkable that a secular, tribal or nationalist state will help do the job for Islam and the Muslims. In fact, such de-Islamised states don't fit into Islam's agenda. Rather, such states distract the Muslims' attention to serve the selfish interests of the corrupt rulers. Islam's past glory, rapid expansion and the security of the Muslims' life and honour indeed owed to the institution of khelafa. Hence, it wasn't the prime target of enemy to destroy Mecca or Medina or any mosque, but to destroy the khilafa. Intact Mecca, Medina and numerous mosques couldn't save the Muslims from the enemy occupation and its terrible tyranny. But the intact khelafa could do the job -as it did for about 13 hundred years. Hence the enemy didn't do any mistake to select the right target. With the collapse of khelafa, the Muslims are now facing the constant tide of enemy aggressions, deaths and destructions -as currently ongoing in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Kashmir, Libya and many other Muslim lands. Constant humiliation has been the part of their life.

For the Muslim children, the institutional need is more specific. Not only they need Islamic families, communities, mosques, schools and universities; but also and most importantly an Islamic state to grow up as true Muslims. In such humanising cum islamising endeavour, the best and the most decisive inputs comes from All-Knowing Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la. Because, only the Almighty is fully aware of the inadequacies of the humans. And, addressing those human inadequacies has always been His greatest concern and the topmost priority. Hence, it has been revealed, "Surely Ours is to show the way." -(Sura Lail, verse 12). So, He needed to send down thousands of prophets, commission angels and reveal Divine Books. Without the Divine inputs people may make empires, construct roads and highways, build pyramids, can fly in the space and drop nuclear bombs; but can't grow as humans with higher values and morality. The history is full of such failures. Racism, colonialism, imperialism, ethnic cleansing, World Wars, dropping nuclear bombs are indeed the symptoms of such catastrophic failures.

The prophets didn't come to teach agriculture, science or technology. They came only to deliver the most crucial humanising inputs -the Divine knowledge and guidance. It is indeed the most essential ingredient to purify people's belief, thoughts and character. Only with such purification, a man and a woman can attain the status of his Lord's true viceroy on earth. Only then, it becomes possible to raise higher civilisation -as was raised by the early Muslims. Otherwise, nations may show talents in making bombs, building industries, invading countries, and killing millions, but terribly fail to raise higher civilisation. Even in modern age, the people will still live with ancient ignorance vis-à-vis ultimate mission and goal of this life. Hence, those who wish to grow up with the Divine Truth and morality, they need to invest more on seeking Divine guidance, thoughts and ideas. They should also engage in enjoining the good and annihilating the wrong. This is indeed the Divine roadmap of success both here and in the hereafter. This is why, seeking Qur'anic knowledge and guidance was made obligatory from day one of Islam -not any prayer or fasting. It is the first and the most important obligation in Muslim's life; and iqra (read) as the first revealed word of the holy Qur'an, in fact, symbolises the significance.

The infrastructure of moral and ideological death

In order to grow as a true Muslim, the individual effort of a man or a woman is not enough. Such a massive and crucial task of humanisation cum islamisation shouldn't put on the shoulder of a lone un-enlightened individual. It is a huge prophetic job; and has its own Divinely guided methodology. In absence of a prophet, the head of the Islamic state and all the state apparatus must work together on behalf of the prophet -as happened in the early days of Islam. The laws for running a just and effective judiciary are given only by Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la; embodiment of such laws is called sharia. A Muslim ruler doesn't own any sovereign right to frame any alternative law as the substitute. Nor does a rulers possess any right to appoint any of his inheritors as the ruler. The prophet didn't do it, nor did the four rightly guided early caliphs. Hence no one possess such right either. Such monarchical practice is haram (forbidden) in Islam; Islam replaced such autocracy with shura and khelafa. Instead of claiming sovereignty, a Muslim ruler must work only as the khalifa (representative) of the prophet to continue with the prophetic tradition and the Qur'anic roadmap. It is the key concept of Islam that got corrupted later on by the power grabbing selfish rulers. The key responsibility of the Muslim rulers is to generate collaborative engagement of all the state and the non-state institutions in the service of Islam and the Muslims. All such institutions must work as the members of the same team to promote the same Islamic cause -as demonstrated by the rightly guided four caliphs. But such positive and collaborative engagement for the Islamic cause doesn't exist currently in most of the Muslim countries. Rather the Muslim states and the state-run institutions are doing exactly the opposite; they are taking the Muslims away from Islam. In the Muslim World, thousands of red light areas, wine shops, dancing and gambling houses, music concerts, obscene cinema shows, nudity and obscenity at sea beaches, interest-based banks and other evil practices operate under police protection. In the name, even the wicked non-Muslims are invited to Muslim countries to have their obscene practice in their sea shores, clubs, pubs or casinos. Culturally and ideologically the Muslim countries look little different from a kuffar country. Was it possible to think about such ugly things in prophet (peace be upon him)'s days? Mission of a Muslim is to eradicate sins, not to promote. Such evil deeds can only invite the Divine curse and calamity. Those who turn away from Islam and align with the occupying kuffar forces, how can they escape from the promised punishment? In fact, the punishment for such noncompliance with Divine decree has been much more severe in the past -as has been in the case of A'ad, Samud and the people of Madayen. They met total annihilation. Only because of the supplication of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) for his ummah, the Muslims could escape a total extinction.

In many Muslim countries, the de-Islamisation project is so massive that the students are not taught even the meaning of a single verse of the holy Qur'an in their 10 or 20 years of student life. This is indeed the greatest betrayal of the Islamic responsibility by a Muslim state. The worst victims are the Muslims themselves. They are failing to grow up as true Muslim. Thus, the Muslim states are working as powerful instruments for pushing the citizens towards the hellfire. Even the illiterate Arab shepherds of the early days could memorise more verses of the holy Qur'an and learn much more about Islam than the Muslim graduates or post-graduates of the modern universities. Thus, the benefits of an Islamic state and the calamity of a non-Islamic state get more obvious. In an Islamic state, all the state and non-state organisational premises turn by default into learning, guiding and enabling institutions. Teaching and learning massively happen in homes, mosques, offices and even in open spaces. Every man turns into a mobile teacher or a student; and sometimes turns into both. In such a learning environment, the open mind, the open ears and the open eyes of even an illiterate man or woman help him or her acquire significant amount of knowledge on Qur'an, prophetic tradition and other important life-skills. In the golden days of Islam, there was no college or university; but the most famous scholars of the whole Muslim history are the products of those days. But now, the things are moving exactly in the opposite direction. The state and its institutions are working as the perfect infrastructure for causing more ideological death. For example, the educational institutions, media and the party outfits are being used to immunise students against Islam. As a result, the so-called educated class of the Muslim societies -with few exception, has become extremely incompatible to Islam's fundamentals like sharia, hudud, shura and khelafa. On the contrary, their compatibility with the enemy agenda is huge; hence the USA, Russia, India and the others easily get their foot-soldiers and partners in Muslim cities. These are indeed the signs of the institutional collapse of the Muslims that has caused immense moral and ideological deaths.

The culture of ignoring the Islamic obligation

It is the prime duty of a Muslim state and its institutions to generate the culture of adherence to Islamic obligation. Otherwise, an opposite culture develop to ignore it. Awfully, such a cultural shift has already happened in almost all the Muslims countries. And it has been the constant priority of the government and the non-government organisations in every non-Islamic Muslim country to re-inforce or strengthen such a cultural shift. Therefore, even in Muslim countries a true Muslim and his family feel the toxic hit of anti-Islamic culture. Hence, in order to continue with true Islam, building an Islamic state with its full Islamic milieu has always been the topmost religious obligation. Otherwise, the Muslims fail to discharge their duty as a true believer; and can't work as a member of an Islamic civilizational force. In absence of such a state, they even fail to grow up as true Muslims. In the past, Islam could make the best people and could build the best civilisation on earth only because of such an enabling environment of the state. These could only be done due to heavy investment on moral, spiritual and conceptual development of the Muslims. The whole state and the all state-run institutions were engaged in that holy task. In fact, what else could be best deed on earth? In those golden days, the focus was never on building palaces, pyramids or Taj Mahal, but on best form of value adding on the humans. And they achieved the spectacular success in that field. So in the whole human history, the best humans were made in those days. Such a success can be easily judged by a singular fact that the head of the world's contemporary super power could pull the rope of the camel while his servant enjoyed the privilege of sitting on its back -as happened during the Caliph Omer (RA)'s about 600 miles journey from Median to Jerusalem. Such an event never happened in any other part of the human history. But if the state is occupied by the evil forces, the history is then made by committing the ugliest crimes. Then, state-run education -the powerful tool of indoctrination, works as a massive tool to dehumanise and deislamise the people. The people then grow up with deep moral perversion. As a result, the people then enjoy and celebrate the ugliest crimes on earth. The US soldiers displayed such ugliest moral death not only in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also in Abu Gharib in Iraq, Bagram base in Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay in Cuba and now in Kobani, Ramadi, Fallujah, Mosul and many other Syrian cities. Only because of such deep dehumanisation, the brutality in Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan or Kashmir is now getting nastier day by day.

The greatest piety and priority

Therefore, the danger of delegating state power to evil forces is catastrophic. No amount of good words, good deeds, prayer or preaching then help establish peace, justice or tranquillity. So, the greatest act of piety is not building mosque or give any charity, but to free a state from the occupation of evil forces. No faith, nor any faithful people can flourish under the evil occupation. Hence, from day one of the prophet hood, the mission of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was not only to convey the message of Islam as the messenger; but also to work as a perfect liberator and state-builder. He liberated the whole Arabian Peninsula from the evil occupation of the pagan criminals. The main focus of his mission was not to build any empire, but to construct a perfect Islamic state to help spread Islam as an effective global civilising force. All of his efforts and sacrifices revolved around this prime objective. From day one of his migration from the holy city of Mecca to Medina, the prophet (peace be upon him) became the Head of the nascent Islamic state, the Commander in Chief of its Army and the Chief Justice of its court. The great prophet (peace be upon him) raised his companions not only as devoted worshipper, but also as deep thinkers, tough warriors and able administrators. They showed their un-surpassed merit to make the Islamic state stable, strong and prevailing over the contemporary World as the number one global power. Within a short span of time, the Roman and the Persian Empire -the contemporary super powers were subdued under the Islamic caliphate.

The Divine trial

Establishing and defending an Islamic state -as practised by the prophet (peace be upon him), is in fact, the core essence of a Muslim's survival mission. Without the support of a powerful state-craft, how the revealed Qur'anic Truth can prevail over the falsehood -as envisioned in the holy Qur'an? In fact, only through establishing an Islamic state, a Muslim can effectively contribute in fulfilling Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la's vision that entails annihilations of the falsehood. But establishing an Islamic state is not an easy walkover. It needs huge sacrifice of money, lives, energy and efforts. It has been proven to be the costliest project of Islam in its whole history. For that, most of the companions of the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) had to leave their homes, fight endless wars, suffer extreme hardships and at the end sacrifice their lives. It is in fact a bloody battle against the enemy's policy of wholesale man-slaughtering -as was the policy of the Arab infidels in the past. Even now, it is being executed exactly in the same way by the US, the UK, the Russian, the Israeli, the Indian and the French killers against the defenceless people in many parts of the Muslim World.

Such a field of state building is indeed the true exam field for the Muslims, too. Only in this field, the real Muslims get correctly sorted out from the fake ones. More importantly, Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la selects the martyrs from this field of Islamic state building. Such a crucial trial doesn't occur in five times prayers, month-long fasting in Ramadan, alms giving to the poor and in attendance in the mosques. Nor does it happen in the rituals of Haj and in field of Arafah. Even the fake believers can do these. The real test starts when it is asked to stand up for Islam against the brutal armies. It is jihad in Islam. The believers then face severe affliction and may even meet death. But those who do not engage in state building, they do not face threat from the enemies. Hence, they do not face any trial either. Thus, the presence in the field of jihad works as the process of purifying the believers. Moreover, it is the only way to eradicate the enemies. Allah Sub'hana wa ta'la is very explicit on this issue. So it is revealed: "And, We bring these days (of harsh affliction) to people in turns so that Allah may know who truly believe (in Him) and (He) pickups the martyrs in His way from you. And so that (through these harsh days of affliction) He may purify those who believe and eradicate those who disbelieve." -(Sura al-Irmarn, Verse 140-141).

The pathology of enmity

The enemies of Islam are not fool. They fully understand the global impact of an Islamic khelafa. The issue of khelafa has the spiritual and ideological force to move the believers across the globe. So, it can draw warriors from all over the world and can quickly turn a Muslim land into a potential core state of Islamic civilisation -as happened in the days of prophet (peace be upon him). Only such a state can dismantle the divisive walls of the Muslim World raised on racial, tribal and linguistic lines. The enemies of Islam express their extreme regrets and frustration vis-à-vis the political wisdom of the Persian and the Roman empires for not extinguishing the nascent Islamic state of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) 14 hundred years ago. They argue that if those two previous World Powers had extinguished the Islamic state at its formative state, the West's current predicament with Islamists couldn't crop up at all -as being expressed by the Islamophobics in recent years. The comments in the political columns of London's Evening Standard, the Daily Mail, the Time and the Telegraph and many others in the West is a clear testimony to that. They argue that the US, the France, the UK, the Germans, the Russians and all other non-Islamic powers should work shoulder to shoulder to dismantle any effort of establishing any Islamic state in any part of the world. So they are in consensus to drop bombs on the Islamists in anywhere in the world. Many of the Muslim countries have joined the anti-Muslim crusade, too. However, such treachery is not new in the Muslim history. When Palestine and Iraq were occupied by the British in 1917, most of its soldiers were non-British; and thousands of them were the Muslim.

In the past, such a consensus argument of the enemies worked successfully to dismantle the united Pakistan in 1971. Because, even in those days, Islam was an issue for them. Now the Russians are bombing the Islamist positions in Syria on the excuse of defending the legitimacy of the country's ruling regime. They talk about the UN charter; being in power by whatever means is claimed to be the point of legitimacy for Basher al-Assad. But in 1971, the Russians did not find any legitimacy of survival of Pakistan. Soviet Russia then stood shoulder to shoulder with the aggressor India to dismember Pakistan. It was again a war against Islam. Pakistan has its own Islamic history of genesis. After the collapse of the Osmania khelafa, the Indian Muslims -the largest Muslim population in the whole world (currently it is about 500 million), got united to establish the biggest Muslim state of Pakistan in the contemporary world. The united Pakistan could have the population of about 360 million now; hence, it had the potential to become the core civilizational state for the Muslims and the model of Muslim unity amidst geographical gap and ethnic difference. Living in Hindu majority India, it was unthinkable to establish such a core civilizational state. But it was unacceptable to the enemies of Islam -as it is now. They didn't want such an Islamic state in any part of the world; only few decades ago, they dismantled one (the Osmania khelafa) in the Middle East after a bloody battle. Hence, when Pakistan was created against their unanimous opposition in 1947, they instantly turned the perpetual enemy against its survival. Therefore, Pakistan didn't need any al-Qaida or ISIS outfits in its midst; the declaration of Islamic State of Pakistan was enough to invite the combined wrath of the enemies from all over the world. This is indeed the true pathology of the anti-Islamists world-wide.

Islam is the complete and comprehensive code of life; hence closes the inroads of ideological corruption of the Muslim intellect by the enemies. It also works as the cementing bondage between the people of different race, land and language. According to the Qur'anic narrative, it is the rope of Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'ala that binds the Muslims together. Islam showed its wonderful strength to bind together the people of different ethnicities like Arabs, Persians, Turks, Kurds, Moors and many others for about a thousand years. But whenever the Islamic faith got weaker, the cementing force got eroded, too. As a result, the large Muslim Ummah got quickly divided and almost decimated. Hence, it has always been the enemy strategy to replace Islam with other ideologies to undo the Muslim unity. They implanted secularism, socialism, nationalism, tribalism and racism as the substitute of Islam. It worked successfully to dismember Osmania Khelafat; and showed its success against the unity of Pakistan, too. In both Pakistan and Turkey, and in almost all Muslim countries, the political, intellectual and academic elites and the civil and the military bureaucracy have so much conceptual corruption that Islam stands foreign and incompatible in their midst. In fact, they feel more comfortable with working with the enemies. Their working stations and residential enclaves are indeed the cultural islands of the enemies. The USA and the Russia-led enemies of Islam are reinforcing the same strategy to sustain the same framework of further division and decadence of the Muslim World. In order to eliminate the sense of obligation to Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la from the Muslim mind, the home-grown Trojan horses of the enemies are promoting sports, music, TV shows and Indian or Hollywood films in a massive way as the new morphine. Thus, the process of de- islamisation and dehumanisation in the Muslim World is getting new momentum.

Fighting the Islamists is the agenda

The Western and the Eastern enemies of Islam do not bother about the barbarity of Bashar al-Assad, General Abul Fattah al-Sissi, Narendra Modi or Shaikh Hasina; nor are they worried about the death of more than 3 hundred thousand Syrians and destruction of the Syrian cities and villages. The US war planes carried out the same destruction in Ramadi, Fallujah, Tikrit, Kobani; and now doing the same in Mosul and Raqqa. The Russians did the same in Chechen city of Grozny and in Afghanistan. How to stop the emergence of an Islamic state in any part of the world is their only worry. In fact, they are ready with huge prize money, chemical weapons and other weapons of mass destruction if the established criminals in power show their brutality against the Islamists. They have already taken the autocratic rulers of the Muslim countries as close partners to sustain their policy of hegemony. In the past, the USA and its partners were very happy with the brutal dictators like President Husni Mubarak of Egypt, President Ben Ali of Tunisia, President Hafez al-Assad and his son President Bashar al-Assad of Syria for decades. In 1982, Hafez al-Assad -the father of Bashar al-Assad massacred about 40 thousand people in the city of Hama. The US and its partners didn't do anything against such brutality, because it was done exclusively against the Islamists. Now they are equally happy with the current anti-Islamic autocrats of Egypt, Bangladesh and the gulf sheikhdoms.

When the Islamist stood up against these criminal rulers, the imperialist powers like the USA, the UK, France, Russia and others raised their own brand of terrorists both inside the Army and among the rebels to fight exclusively against the Islamists. The strategy worked successfully to overthrow the first elected President of Egypt and now showing success to decimate the Islamists in Syria. This way the enemies of Islam are providing a new lease of life to their autocratic comrades, and resisting the revival of Islam. The US army has killed more than a million in Afghanistan and Iraq; and turned hundreds of Muslim cities and villages into rubbles. The US-led killings and destructions still continue. The Russian Army has killed more than 1.5 million in Afghanistan during their occupations in the eighties; and they are now bombing the cities in Syria. The Indian Army has already killed more than 100 thousands Muslims in Kashmir over the years of its military occupation. Now the killing in Kashmir has attained a new high. Bashar al-Assad has killed more than 300 thousands. General Abdul Fatah Al Sissi of Egypt has killed more than 1200 in only one night in the streets of Cairo. Shaikh Hasina -the Prime Minister of Bangladesh, has killed thousands of opposition activists to protect her autocratic rule; and still continues to hijack, torture and kill her political opponents. The Israeli killing machines are relentlessly active in Palestine for more than 70 years to kill or evict the original settlers. More than 5 million Palestinians, 4 million Syrians, 2 million Afghans and about half a million Rohinga Muslims still live as refugee in foreign lands. In 14 hundred years of Islam's history, such genocidal atrocities and eviction could be compared only with the atrocities committed to the Spanish Muslims after the fall of Muslim rule there.

The new low and the worst betrayal

To distract the public eyes from their own crimes, the perpetrating state-terrorists of the West and Russia have deployed an old malicious strategy. They have raised the bogey of Islamists to scare the Muslims as well as the world population. They always need some bogey to flex their muscle and occupy new lands. The US-led coalition used the pretext of al-Qaida to occupy Afghanistan and Iraq. Now using presence of the Islamists to destroy and occupy Syria. As if, the Islamists have killed more people than the USA, the Russian, the Indian, the Syrian and the Egyptian Armies and turned many cities to rubbles. The Pharaoh showed his devilish skill to successfully sell lies to the Egyptian people; he could project Prophet Musa (peace upon him) as the evil magician and an enemy of the Egyptian people. He could also justify the brutal slaughtering of the Banu Israeli men and enslavement of their women. He could also impose himself on the Egyptian people as a god.

The Egyptian people were not moron; they could build pyramids and mummify people for thousands of years. But they surrendered to lies. This is the magic manipulative power of the state authority. And such state power of the US-led coalition is far superior to Pharaoh. Pharaoh didn't have drones, nuclear bombs, modern propaganda machines and a huge army spread over the whole world. Therefore, the selling power of lies of this imperialists' coalition is far greater. So, is there any surprise that President Obama - the drone-master cum the head of the most genocidal state on earth would be given the Noble Prize and the defenceless Islamists will be labelled as the global threat? This is the lowest low of human civilisation. Only with such moral low, people could deliver the perfect legality to the creation of Israel on the occupied land of Palestine and eviction of its people. It is also the new low of the Muslims. Instead of spreading the Divine Truth to others, they too, stand fully succumbed to the manipulative power of the neo-Pharaoh. Therefore, along with the occupying kuffar forces, they too stand against establishment of Islamic state in any part of the Muslim World. What else could be the worst betrayal of Islam?
