Hadith of the Week

Masruq reported: We asked Abdullah ibn Mas'ud,r.a.,about this verse:

وَلَا تَحْسَبَ¦َّ الَّذِين¤ قُتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ أَمْوَات¡ا بَلْ أَحْيَاء¢ عِندَ رَبِّهِم¨ يُرْزَقُ¨نَ

Do not think those who are killed in the way of Allah are dead. Rather, they are alive with their provision in the presence of their Lord. Surat Ali Imran 3:169

Abdullah said: We asked the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, about this verse and he said:

أَرْوَاح¥هُمْ فِي جَوْفِ طَيْرٍ خُضْرٍ لَهَا قَنَادِي¤ُ مُعَلَّق¤ةٌ بِالْعَر¨شِ تَسْرَحُ مِنْ الْجَنَّِ حَيْثُ شَاءَتْ ثُمَّ تَأْوِي إِلَى تِلْكَ الْقَنَا™ِيلِ فَاطَّلَ™َ إِلَيْهِ¥ْ رَبُّهُم¨ اطِّلَاع¤ةً فَقَالَ هَلْ تَشْتَهُ¨نَ شَيْئًا قَالُوا أَيَّ شَيْءٍ نَشْتَهِ  وَنَحْنُ نَسْرَحُ مِنْ الْجَنَّِ حَيْثُ شِئْنَا فَفَعَلَ ذَلِكَ بِهِمْ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ فَلَمَّا رَأَوْا أَنَّهُم¨ لَنْ يُتْرَكُ¨ا مِنْ أَنْ يُسْأَلُ¨ا قَالُوا يَا رَبِّ نُرِيدُ أَنْ تَرُدَّ أَرْوَاح¤نَا فِي أَجْسَاد¦نَا حَتَّى نُقْتَلَ فِي سَبِيلِك¤ مَرَّةً أُخْرَى فَلَمَّا رَأَى أَنْ لَيْسَ لَهُمْ حَاجَةٌ تُرِكُوا

The souls of martyrs are alive in the bodies of green birds who have their nests in chandeliers hanging from the Throne of the Almighty. They eat the fruits of Paradise from wherever they wish and they nestle among these chandeliers. Once their Lord cast a glance at them and he said: Do you want anything? They said: What more could we desire? We eat the fruit of Paradise from wherever we wish. Their Lord asked them the same question three times. When they saw that they will continue to be asked, they said: O Lord, we wish that you could return our souls to our bodies so that we could be martyred in your way once again. When Allah saw that they had no needs, he left them to enjoy.

Fake News on the Shaykh.

The Zionist media keep repeating the story that Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman was tried for his role in the first World Trade Center Bombing.

This is absolutely not true.

Shaykh Omar was NOT indicted or tried for the first Trade Center bombing.

That case had ended by the time his case started.

Jamaat al-Muslimeen Decries Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman's Political Imprisonment and Death in Captivity

Press Statement
Nadrat Siddique
Jamaat al-Muslimeen National Majlis-e-Shura member
February 18, 2017

February 18, 2017, is a dismal day in the history of the United States, even by its own genocidal standards. On this day, Islamic scholar Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman, also known as "the Blind Sheikh," died a political prisoner of the U.S. government. To multitudes of Muslims the world over, he will be viewed as a martyr of Islam. The American mainstream might better understand Muslim sentiment if they considered how they might feel if Pope Francis—or another beloved religious figure— was imprisoned in a Muslim country, allowed virtually no contact with constituents, followers, and family, and then left to die a slow painful death from untreated (but treatable) medical conditions.

A visionary, Dr. Abdel Rahman articulately and consistently spoke out against the U.S.-backed Egyptian dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak decades prior to the Arab Spring, insisting that the resources of Muslim countries, including Egypt, be used for the betterment of those countries--and not be pilfered by Western Powers or multinational corporations. These basic and seemingly logical demands were rewarded with imprisonment and torture by the Egyptian regime.

Fleeing the Egyptian regime's torture, Dr. Abdel Rahman sought political asylum in the U.S., which he viewed as a land of freedom of expression, and whose laws he repeatedly emphasized must, in accordance with Islamic rules on guest-host relations, be respected by all Muslims who sought asylum therein, including himself.

Far from being accorded freedom of expression, he was brought up on trumped up charges, tried in a climate of utter fear and emotion, and, in 1995, convicted of conspiracy to bomb New York landmarks, almost entirely on the word of an informant who was paid over a million dollars.

Although he undoubtedly knew he was facing decades of jail time, he stood before the Court, unafraid of all but the Creator. His final words before being marched off into the American Gulag were a telling: "Fuzto Be Rab-e-Ka'aba" ("By the Lord of the Ka'aba, I have succeeded").

The blind, elderly, diabetic scholar of Islam was detained and held for over 20 years under what can only be described as conditions of "Cruel and Unusual" punishment. Since he could neither see nor speak to his captors (he was blind and spoke no English); was barely allowed a monthly phone call to his family in Egypt; and was held in solitary confinement, he no doubt suffered all of the psychological trauma associated with long-term solitary captivity. On top of that, his advanced stage diabetes went untreated for months on end, until its effects, including gangrene, were irreversible, and he was finally relocated to the Butner Medical Center in North Carolina, where he would ultimately die. His family's hunger strikes and appeals to the (post-Arab Spring Egyptian) regime of Muhammad Morsi for his repatriation to Egypt were fruitless, and Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman—loved throughout much of Egypt and the Islamic world—died alone, a slow painful death from diabetes.

The long-term political imprisonment and death in captivity of Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman seems part of a trend by the U.S. and its proxies to silence all independent, vocal, and effective Muslim leadership, and in particularly those who hold the title of imam, a position of high honor and respect in the Muslim community. It seems that the only imams of major mosques permitted to operate freely are those who kowtow to the government; bandy American flags on Muslim religious institutions; welcome video monitoring of their mosques; and encourage or allow censorship of their own words and those of their constituents by the authorities—clearly compromising their faith, as well as American principles of :"Separation of Church and State."

The death of a renowned and respected Islamic scholar under such circumstances is an abomination. Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman's treatment in captivity clearly violated both American laws on the treatment of prisoners (set out in the Bureau of Prison regulations), as well as numerous international laws. Jamaat al-Muslimeen decries Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman's political imprisonment on trumped up charges, and laments his tragic death under clearly dehumanizing conditions.


Acts of Grave Injustice and Treachery which put Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman in Prison for Life.
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

A great scholar has returned to his Creator. Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman was Hafize Qur'an and Hafize Sahih Bukhari.

Why did Allah Almighty allow Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman to suffer for so long, 20 years, in solitary confinement, a helpless blind man suffering from diabetes and other ailments. My surmise is that the Muslims of America were being tested and the Muslims, with few exceptions, failed miserably.

Most people, including many Muslims, do not know these verifiable facts which put a sentence of life and 65 years on the greatest teacher of the Qur'an in our times.

  1. The judge in the case of Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman was a Zionist Jew, Michael Mukasey, who later became attorney general. A Muslim organization helped the government to claim that the judge did not have to recuse himself [although his wife was an active worker for Israel].

  2. During the trial, emergency would be suddenly declared to give the impression that the building itself, in mid town Manhattan would be attacked by the Shaykh's supporters.

  3. The government used the media to disseminate the false claim that an Islamic "terrorist" army had infiltrated America in support of the Shaykh and could attack at any time.

  4. Jurors were allowed to read the media which were full of bizarre stories against the Shaykh. TIME magazine connected him with David Koresh [1] on its COVER.

  5. SIRAJ WAHHAJ played the dirtiest role in helping the Zionists to sentence the Blind Shaykh. He was called as a defense witness but he supported the prosecution by claiming, without being asked about it, that the Shaykh supported "robbing banks." This dastardly crook Siraj Wahhaj does not know Arabic and thus could not have known what the Shaykh said at a meeting in the mosque. He volunteered this slander.

    1. Not only was Siraj unrepentant, he glorified himself in a huge friendly interview with the Wall Street Journal. He also boasted of his ties with the government in particular Medeleine Albright, a US Secretary of State who justified the slow death of 500,000 Iraqi children under US sanctions [which probably instigated the 9.11 attacks].

    2. Siraj WahhaJ was the idol of ICNA, CAIR and ISNA for years as the epitome of Islamic truth! These groups for decades had close ties with the FBI which helped it to infiltrate Muslim communities all over America.

  6. In prison, Shaykh Omar was mistreated and he could not complain because he did not know English. Owing to prison rules for "cavity" searches, he had a problem accepting visitors. Later ALL VISITS TO HIM WERE PROHIBITED. His attorney, Lynne Stewart, was imprisoned for divulging what he had said during a visit through a translator [as was the translator].

All this was done to please Hosni Mubarak, the dictator of Egypt, who was in a close relationship with America and kept Egypt in a HARAM relationship with Israel.

Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman is free now, a martyr when he was buried alive. InshalAllah he is getting the best treatment from Allah Almighty.

Special Thanks go to Sis. Ayesha Jones and Br. Ali Randall for monitoring the conditions of the Shaykh during his last days. They repeatedly called the medical prison in Butner, NC., where he was being held, sometimes waiting on the phone 40 minutes at a time.

We have received a continuing stream of messages condoling the passing of the Bllnd Shaykh, including 1200 likes in one day on facebook.

هل هناك أدنى من ذلك ؟ إعلام عاهر مثل قائده ... قمة الحقارة

He Shall Ever Live & Be Remembered In Our Hearts As A Great Muslim Warrior & Hero In The Service of Islam & Ummah, Of Our Recent Muslim History.

From Sis. Hedaya Jayyousi
بقلوب يملأها الحزن والاسي.. تلقينا الان خبر وفاه الدكتور الشيخ عمر عبدالرحم¦ رحمه الله واسكنه الفردوس الاعلى وجميع موتي المسلمين.. عشرون سنه قضاها في سجون الظلم.. خذله حكامنا وهم يعرفون انه برئ من تلك التهم التي الصقت به.. اللهم الهم اهله وذويه الصبر والسلوان ولا حول ولا قوه الا بالله

From Sis. Aisha [New York]
I am so sad to hear about the Shaykh's passing. I remember making calls and writing emails, with your support and encouragement, on his behalf while in college. He has always been in my prayers. I am in awe of his strength to endure so much suffering for all this time.

From the Editor:
Thank you also for the hundreds of messages and likes we have received regarding Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman.



Upper/middle Class Muslim Americans: Feeling Threatened as if it's the end of the World owing to Trump
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

Jamaat al-Muslimeen urged Muslims to realize that both political parties have anti-Islam viewpoints and we should not vote for either. Upper class Muslim Americans as usual ignored the Jamaat advice and voted for Hillary. They all fervently believed that Hillary would win. They are now in a state of shock because Trump won.

Obama's people went into action immediately after Hillary's defeat. Thousands demonstrated in the streets, the very next day after Trump's victory.

The media also went into action. A massive campaign was launched to delegitimize Trump's victory. Well orchestrated deception was set in motion. Look at this:

  1. Trump's plan to stop people coming in from 7 countries was actually started by Obama. The problem at the airports was created by a much sterner Trump order which officials took to mean that green card holders were also blocked. Once that was cleared up, flights resumed. However, the upper class Muslims felt terrorized and have become complete slaves of the Hillary-Obama-Zionist machine.

  2. Muslims of the upper/middle class have opened themselves to pro-Democrat propaganda on the major media. A specific example: Bill Mahr, a Jew who claims to be an atheist, was given as entire HOUR on CNN. He habitually attacks religion, particularly Islam. These rich Muslims have not protested. [In fact they have not protested ANY attacks by the USA on the Muslim world.]

  3. Panic stricken as these rich Muslims are, they have accepted unity with the LGBTq groups [the entire homosexual movement]. Thus these rich mosque communities who pray and fast are openly supporting the groups whose activities are most explicitly condemned in the Qur'an.

  4. Obama deported millions of undocumented "aliens." Trump is doing the same but his deportations are highly publicized by the Zionist media, again creating fear and anxiety among upper/middle class Muslims.

  5. Obama vowed to destroy the Islamic State and put together an international coalition to bomb the Muslim fighters. This is a daily bombing campaign, Trump says that he will do more than Obama to destroy IS. Not much of a difference in reality. US special forces and the British military are already there. This does put up the threat level that IS might attack America. The only two attacks were during Obama's regime.

  6. Trump is very close to Russia. Obama was very close to Russia too. He cleverly let the Russian armies enter Syria along with Hizbullah and Iran. At a crucial moment in the Syrian struggle, Obama's released a huge sum of money to Iran which was frozen from the time of the hostage taking in Iran. As a result, open ended entry of Shia militias has been continuing into Syria from Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India under Iranian supervision [with full acceptance by Russia and America.]

  7. We see "Netanyahoo" sitting next to Trump. Many forget that Obama gave Israel the biggest military aid package in the history of the USA: $38 billion. To calm Palestinians down, Obama told Israel not to build further in the already established Jewish settlements. Trump too is telling Israel to slow down.

Muslims should watch both sides. Criticize both sides. Don't accept any lies. These crowds of Muslims have no Islamic significance until they oppose:
  1. Bombing.
  2. Occupation.
  3. Zionism propaganda
  4. Israel.
  5. Tyrants and traitors planted by kuffar.



War Comes Back to Pakistan after army wiped out Islamic villages in Swat, South and North Waziristan, entire frontier. Human Bombers are attacking across the Country.
[From our media monitor.]

February 16: A human bomber struck a Sufi shrine in Sehwan [Sindh province]. The carnage which followed killed 72 and wounded more than 250. The bomber too was killed.The victims were in the middle of a sufi dance known as dhamal.

On February 13, a breakaway group of the Taliban blew up a police force in the central square of Lahore city. Those killed included 6 police officers including two top commanders. Seven other people were also killed and 83 wounded.

The attacking group's leader and 2 associates were killed by police in a fake encounter last year. [Extra judicial killinhg.]

The same day, a Pak Taliban attack in South Waziristan killed 3 soldiers of the crack FC regiment.

On February 14, two Pakistani militia were killed in an attack in Mohmand area near Afghanistan.

On February 15, Near Quetta, Pak Taliban assailants killed 3 Pakistani troops, including a captain, and injured several.
Earlier in Afghanistan, a US air strike killed 14 civilians, including women and children. [Suspected of being pro-Taliban.]
Pakistanis in major cities like Lahore do not realize that their army ravaged Islamic villages along the entire Pak-Afghan border during the last few years,

The Pakistani military evicted ENTIRE POPULATIONS of Swat and North Waziristan. Several thousand Taliban and about 30,000 civilians were killed by the Pakistan army which used tanks, heavy artillery, helicopter gunships and jet bombers against the Islamic villages.

The assault on the Islamic villages was apparently carried out at the orders of the US and NATO.

The top leader of Pak Taliban, Maulvi Fazlullah, excaped into Afghanistan with a hard core group of mujahideen. From there he reportedly has been directing attacks in Pakistan.

The Shrine attack was probably carried out by assailants who consider saint worship and shrine worship the biggest sins in Islam. It is called SHIRK [associating humans with Allah]...

[NT monitor says the way to peace is not through bombing and counterbombing but the Pakistani military wants more blood. See this.]

**See Pakistani Military's Response Below**
[Look carefully. This is not an American general. Probably more American than the Americans. New Trend]

" Each drop of nation's blood t o be revenged immediately: COAS"

 Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa

ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa Thursday said each drop of nation's blood shall be revenged, and revenged immediately.

"No more restraint for anyone," the army chief said, according to tweets by Director General ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor.

The army chief said, "Recent terrorist acts are being executed on directions from hostile powers and from sanctuaries in Afghanistan. We shall defend and respond."

General Qamar Javed appealed to the nation to stay calm. "Your security forces shall not allow hostile powers to succeed. We stand for our nation."

The COAS directed Pakistan Army and Rangers for providing immediate assistance to Sehwan blast victims.

Army and Rangers had moved along with the medical support for the victims. The Combined Military Hospital (CMH) at Hyderabad was ready to receive casualties.
