Hadith of the Week

Three Important Teachings.

Ma'bad al-Juhaini narrates that Muawiyyah, r.a., seldom narrated hadith but some teachings of the Prophet, pbuh, he narrated frequently. For instance at Juma' he quoted from the Prophet, pbuh, that Allah gives true understanding of religion to one whom He wants to bless, and that the wealth of the world is very attractive, so one who takes from it with honesty and goodness, it brings him religious exaltation, and one who flatters you and praises you to your face is cutting the throat of your spirituality.

[Musnad of Ahmad ibn Hanbal, hadith # 16971]

Comment by Kaukab Siddique: Muwaiyya, r.a., turned out to be one of the greatest Muslims of his time. He was blessed by the Prophet, pbuh, to be the writer of several revelations of the Qur'an. His caliphate was a time of Muslim unity and outstanding victories for Islam. He remained humble although he had total support from the Muslims including Hasan and Hussain, r.a., the sons of Ali, r.a., with both of whom he was compassionate and generous. He has been targeted by the Shia sect for all kinds of abuse. I have the complete set of the 130 hadith he narrated and there is not ONE WORD in it against Ali, r.a. and his supporters. Notice the teachings of the prophet, pbuh, which he is transmitting here:

  1. Understanding of religion is a blessing from Allah.

  2. Use of wealth with wisdom is a high religious quality.

  3. Flattery is extremely damaging.

One reason why the Shias hate him so much is that Ali, r.a., could not defeat Muawiyya, r.a.,

Another is that by maligning him, Shias can abuse Umar, r.a., who recognized his leadership qualities and made governor of the northern provinces, and Usman, r.a., who made him commander of Islamic armies and he won some of the greatest victories of Islam.


Hundreds of Civilians killed in Huge Bomb Blast unloaded in Afghanistan
American Claims

The prominent Urdu daily Jasarat of Pakistan noted on April 14 that hundreds of civilians in Nagarhar province of Afghanistan were killed when USA on April 13 unloaded MOAB, the biggest bomb in the American arsenal.

After the attack, USA media claimed that 36 Islamic State fighters were killed in the attack and NO civilians were hurt. On April 14, USA media raised the number of deaths to 94 but added that it could rise further.

According to Jasarat there are hundreds of burnt bodies scattered over the bombed area.

The Islamic State medi AMAQ says that none of its fighters were killed in the massive bomb assault: Only civilians were killed.

Former Afghan leader Karzai who once supported USA has condemned the bomb assault as an assault on all of Afghanistan and the Muslim world.

[New Trend Ed. note: America does not have the right to occupy or bomb Afghanistan. The regime in Kabul was installed by USA and fake elections were held under the guns of American forces with the support of the Shia community. Kabul letting USA bomb Afghanistan is a travesty of international law and the independence of Afghanistan.]

Big Bomb Attack is like an Attack on Islamabad, says JI.
by Ameer al-Azeem

LAHORE, Apr. 16; Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Paksitan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the attack of the Mother of Bombs at the Pak- Afghan border was an attack on Islamabad and the silence of the rulers in this regard was a question mark.

Addressing a JI Youth convention at Peshawar on Sunday, he said that nothing good was expected of the US which had devastated Japan during the second World War by dropping two nuclear bombs. The US he said, wanted to destroy this entire region. However, he said, that the silence of the rulers on this attack was a matter of deep concern.

Sirajul Haq said that as and when there was a talk for Afghan peace, the US hatched a conspiracy to sabotage these efforts. He said the only way to restore peace in Afghanistan was that the US pulled out its forces from there.

The JI chief said the people of the tribal areas wanted their merger with Khyber P. but the government had kept silence after making an announcement in this respect. He said the government was under the misconception that the tribal people would remain silent on the issue. The people of the tribal areas would not rest till the oppressive FCR was abolished.

Sirajul Haq said that terrorism was the gift of Pervez Musharraf who bowed his head to a threat from Washington and the nation was suffering its consequences till today.

He said that the PML(N) leader had promised to end load shedding of electricity within three months. It was the fourth year of their ruler but there seemed to be no end to energy shortage.

Sirajul Haq said that the future of the country rested with its young generation.

 Word Around The Net

Japanese Occupation of China

This was Br. Kris's weekly section, but since his death we have used the section for something in his memory.

The book shown below is an extraordinary book that Br.Kris was reading before his passing. We note this here in his memory:

The book documents the terrible atrocities commited by the Japenese army when it occupied China. The western countries wanted to use Japan, so they did not publicize these events. The book documents in photos the horrific nature of the atrocities, including mass rapes, burial alive of prisoners, mass humiliation, and enslavement.

The most positive aspect of the book is that one man who had helped to setup a safe zone on the outskirts of Nanking saved the lives and honor of thousands of Chinese people. He was a close confidant and supporter of Adolf Hitler. At the end of the war, when he went back to Germany owing to the collapse of the economic structure, he was poverty stricken and lived out of garbage cans.

However, the Chinese people remembered him and after a while they found him and sent him thousands of gifts and money and honored him forever.

 The Rape of Nanking

Note from the Editor: It is wrong to paint Hitler's people as always being brutal and continuing to ignore the good that many of them did prevents us from seeing historical truth. It's time for us to get away from war-time propoganda and face only the facts.



From an Extensive report about the destruction of Africa
[Excerpt, via Prof Rezak on Facebook]
By: Mawuna Remarque KOUTONIN

When tourists visit sub-Saharan Africa, they often wonder "Why there are no historical buildings or monuments?"

The reason is simple. Europeans have destroyed most of them. We have only left drawings and descriptions by travelers who have visited the places before the destructions. In some places, ruins are still visible. Many cities have been abandoned into ruin when Europeans brought exotic diseases (smallpox and influenza) which started spreading and killing people. The ruins of those cities are still hidden. In fact the biggest part of Africa history is still under the ground.

In this post, I'll share pieces of informations about Africa before the arrival of Europeans, the destroyed cities and lessons we could learn as africans for the future.

The collection of facts regarding the state of african cities before their destruction is done by Robin Walker, a distinguished panafricanist and historian who has written the book 'When We Ruled', and by PD Lawton, another great panafricanist, who has an upcoming book titled "African Agenda".

All quotes and excerpts below are from the books of Robin Walker and PD Lawton. I highly recommend you to buy Walker's book 'When We Ruled' to get a full account of the beauty of the continent before its destruction. You can get more info about PD Lawton work by visiting her blog:

Robin Walter and PD Lawton have quoted quite heavily another great panafricanist Walter Rodney who wrote the book 'How Europe Underdeveloped Africa'. Additional information came from YouTube channel 'dogons2k12 : African Historical Ruins', and Ta Neter Foundation work.

Many drawings are from the book African Cities and Towns Before the European Conquest by Richard W. Hull, published in 1976. That book alone dispels the stereotypical view of Africans living in simple, primitive, look-alike agglomerations, scattered without any appreciation for planning and design.

In fact, at the end of the 13th century, when a european traveler encountered the great Benin City in West Africa (present Nigeria, Edo State), he wrote as follows:

"The town seems to be very great. When you enter into it, you go into a great broad street, not paved, which seems to be seven or eight times broader than the Warmoes street in Amsterdam...The Kings palace is a collection of buildings which occupy as much space as the town of Harlem, and which is enclosed with walls. There are numerous apartments for the Prince's ministers and fine galleries, most of which are as big as those on the Exchange at Amsterdam. They are supported by wooden pillars encased with copper, where their victories are depicted, and which are carefully kept very clean. The town is composed of thirty main streets, very straight and 120 feet wide, apart from an infinity of small intersecting streets. The houses are close to one another, arranged in good order. These people are in no way inferior to the Dutch as regards cleanliness; they wash and scrub their houses so well that they are polished and shining like a looking glass." (Source: Walter Rodney, 'How Europe Underdeveloped Africa, pg. 69)

Sadly, in 1897, Benin City was destroyed by British forces under Admiral Harry Rawson. The city was looted, blown up and burnt to the ground. A collection of the famous Benin Bronzes are now in the British Museum in London. Part of the 700 stolen bronzes by the British troops were sold back to Nigeria in 1972.

Latest Khutba

Don't Support Either Side in the American "liberal" vs "rightist" Clash.
An example of Qur'an's miracle.
Online Blasphemy is Common. Porno Pouring into Muslim Communities.

On April 14 Br. Kaukab Siddique gave the juma' khutba and led prayers at masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in central Baltimore.

After prayers a brother invited the congregation to visit important programs about Malcolm X to be held in New York in mid- May.

An appeal was also made to help a sister who is near losing her home.

The outline of the khutba is given here for distribution on line.

Alif. Lam. Mim. The Romans have been overcome in the neighboring land, and within 10 years after their defeat, they shall be victorious. Allah's is the authority before as well as afterwards. And it will be the day when the believers will rejoice in the victory granted by Allah. Allah helps whomsoever He wills: He is the All-Mighty, the All-Merciful. This is Allah's promise: Allah never breaks His promise; but most people do not know. [Sura 30. Verses 1-6]

  1. Sura 30 announced a miracle of the Qur'an. At that time the two superpowers were Persia and Rome. The Persians had defeated the Romans. The Qur'an predicted that within 10 years the Romans would win and then the Muslims would win too. [Bid in Arabic is a number up to 10.]

  2. The most amazing part of this prediction was that the Muslims would win too. They were a negligible force when the prediction was made and Persians were steadily overrunning the Roman empire. This sura was revealed in Makka before the hijra [migration] to Madina at the time of migration to Africa.

  3. The Romans did emerge victorious within that time frame, Later, when the Prophet, pbuh, greeted the Persians and gave them the choice between accepting the ONE Creator and going to Paradise or continuing in falsehood and going to hell, their ruler laughed and ordered that the Prophet, pbuh, be brought to him in chains made of gold.

  4. Relevant to our situation is the fact that Allah did not tell Muslims to side with either empire. Many commentators have made the mistake of thinking that the Quran was siding with Rome. [They add their comments to the Qur'an within brackets!]

  5. We see that the Russians who had never been defeated even by Hitler and Napoleon and had occupied all of eastern Europe were forced to retreat by the poorly armed Muslims of Afghanistan.

  6. The Americans are going around dropping bombs here and there and now they have dropped their biggest bomb on Afghanistan.

  7. America can never win against Islam because we have the Qur'an and the Sunnah. In the Qur'an and the Example, we have the power to win against any superpower. Very few Muslims are fighting but even then Islam is steadily winning.

  8. In America, we have a peaceful movement but the power of the Qur'an is bringing people to Islam.

  9. We can win big time in America if we understand and oppose the evil which is crushing the people of this country.Like the Persian and Roman empires, modern America has made sex slaves out of millions of women. They are treated like targets for male lust, perversions and violence.

  10. Pornography is a multi- billion dollar industry in America. Every home and every individual is receiving sickening porno videos depicting women as sex slaves at the service of men. The women are shown simply as objects of sex or merely sex organs being used as objects by men.

  11. This sexual filth is being poured into Muslim countries too as part of America's cultural imperialism, attempting to destroy the family system in Africa and Pakistan-India-Bangladesh. Go to any Internet café in Africa or Pakistan and you can check what young people have been watching.

  12. Homosexuality is another tool of Zionism and Imperialism. If homo sex is okay, then who can stop adultery and random hetero sex?

  13. The Internet is humming with blatant abuse aimed at Islam, in particular the Prophet, pbuh, and Ayesha, r.a. We need Muslim committees to work as volunteers to counterattack the enemies of Islam on line.

  14. Study the Qur'an and hadith in hard copy. On line distortions are happening. Anybody can post anything, so be careful.

Du'a: O Allah save our youths from drug addiction. Give us spouses and children. who will stand with us for Islam. Help us to study Qur'an and hadith daily. Give us unity, compassion and awareness.

Invitation to Think
from Br.Robert Solano

 Br Robert Solano

Br. Solano's Comment on Jamaat al-Muslimeen Statement about 22000 pound Bomb unloaded on Afghanistan: " Anything and everything 'Tromp' does to make us forget the elections and his selection by Putin will not work. Killing Muslims with the largest non-nuclear bomb will not make us forget. The impeachment might take two years but he will have to resign in the same manner that Richard Nixon did."


April 13th Statement from Jamaat al-Muslimeen regarding America's Big Bomb Drop:

Today USA dropped its biggest bomb on the poorest province of the poorest Muslim country. Arrogant challenge by Trump to the Muslim world: Bow down otherwise we will bomb you. Atom bombs next?

Trump does not realize that Islam cannot be destroyed by dropping big bombs on it. Afghanistan should have taught a lesson by now but people with big guns don't think.

Think back 1979-80: Soviet armies came in and conquered Afghanistan in three weeks. Years later the SOVIETS HAD TO WITHDRAW UNILATERALLY and the Soviet empire collapsed.

Osama bin Laden was bombed in Tora Bora day after day. He not only survived but came out to organize worldwide armed resistance.

America not only bombed Afghanistan but occupied it with the COMBINED FORCES of NATO. Again Taliban are in control of most of 60 % of the country. Now ISIS is coming and gets hit hard by America. Result? There wil be an outburst of support for the Islamic State. Muslims are no longer afraid of American power.

God knows how many Trump has killed with this one huge bomb. Perhaps hundreds. As khalid ibn al-Waleed, r.a., said Muslims love death more than the oppressors love life.

Afghans are the last people you should try to scare. Bombs cannot destroy Islam. These people pray, fast, give zakat and do jihad. A steady stream of them are LEAVING TALIBAN and Joining the Islamic State. Mr. TrumpL Think before you drop more bombs. Even if you drop atom bombs, you cannot win against Islam.

Think! In 25 weeks you havent been able to take Mosul. You just lost the little you had gained in Afghanistan. Right across the border in Pakistan, an entire UNIVERSITY BODY rose up and killed a blasphemer whom the regime was allowing to abuse Islam. And these are not fighters but university people.

I hope the arrogance of American power will be restrained by thoughtful Americans.

The Mardan Incident: Online Blasphemy is Attracting Anger from Muslim Students.
[From New Trend's media monitor]

At Wali Khan University in Mardan, a man named Mishal was blaspheming on line. Whenever he would be found out, he would claim it wasn't him but someone else. Then he would re-appear and continue to insult Islam.

This went on and the Pakistan regime did nothing. Finally the students rose up, the entire community of them, and attacked Mishal and killed him and only wounded his friends when they repented. Mishal did not repent The crowd was so big that the police said they had no way of stopping them or even confronting them. The police say the students were even trying to burn Mishal's body.

It is reported that Mishal had been to Russia and came back to join the Communist group of students.

The entire corpus of lefties, "liberals", PPP and seculars are now crying out aloud that Mishal should have received a fair trial. Unfortunately they did not condemn blasphemy and did not call for legal measures BEFORE the students rose up.

Pakistan is based on the love and honor of the Prophet, pbuh. The seculars who support the superpowers have infiltrated the media, "charitable" organizations and art-and-dance organizations. They think the most effective way of de-Islamizing Pakistan is to make blasphemy as merely a form of expression as in America. It's a worldwide movement as we saw in the attempts to support cartoons of the Prophet, pbuh, in France, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark and USA.

Pathans who constitute the majority of people in Mardan and most of the northern areas of Pakistan are passionate in their love of Islam. They are the frontline of the Islamic integrity of Pakistan.

[With thanks to Br. Sajjad and many other people in the frontier areas of Pakistan who have posted the originak info on Mishal as proof of his blasphemy and the regime's attempts to ignore the blasphemy. Also we note attempts by the secularist PPP group which is trying to create diversions to delegitimize the public disgust with the abuse by Mishal.]

Top Islamic Leader's Comments on Mardan, Indian spy, Kashmir and American Meddling in Muslim countries.
by Qaiser Sharif

LAHORE, Apr. 15: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that had the government framed laws in connection with blasphemy, the incident of Mardan University would not have occurred. He was talking to the media after presiding over the khatme Bukhari ceremony at Jamia Qasimul Uloom, Sargodha, on Saturday.

The JI chief said that the statements of the Prime Minister and the Defense Minister in support of secularism were a violation of the constitution. If Pakistan was a secular state, how does it fit in the background of the Quaid e Azam's numerous statements declaring the Quran and the Sunnah as the constitution of Pakistan, he asked.
Sirajul Haq asked the Prime Minister and the Defense Minister if countless people in the sub continent had offered their lives for this country only for economic considerations.

The JI chief deplored that while India was killing innocent Kashmiris in cold blood, the rulers in Islamabad were totally unconcerned. He said that Pakistan was being governed by Moghul princes who were running the country in the manner as if they had been given the country on contract. He said that millions of rupees were being spent annually on the decoration of the President and the Prime Minister houses while the country was under heavy debt.

He announced that the JI on coming into power, would distribute the Jagirs/ big land holdings of the feudal lords among landless tillers.

Sirajul Haq said there was no need to be cowed down by New Delhi's threats on Kulboshun [India's spy captured by Pakistan]. He warned that if Kulboshun was also released like Raymond Davis [CIA agent], India would infiltrate many more spies in this country.

He said that as long as the US forces were present in the region, there could not be peace. He said that all those who looked up to the west for guidance and support, would fail in the long run.

Jamiat e Ittehad ul Ulema e Pakistan President Maulana Abdul Ma'alik, and Prof. Irfan Ahmed also addressed the gathering.

US Elite Forces back in Somalia

According to the Daily Telegraph, elements of the elite US 101st Airborne Division have arrived in Somalia to help the regime fight al-Shabab.

[The Islamic group has captured most of Somalia but cannot take the major cities because it lacks heavy weapons].

Bombing, Shelling continues against Muslims. Kurds Enter al-Tabaqa. Huge Bomb Blast hit Shi'ite Civilian Evacuees.

April 15. The US "coalition" bombed Islamic State areas near Deir ex Zor killing 8 civilians including 4 children.

Also April 15. Assad's jet fighters carried out 40 raids on the city of Daraa which is the stronghold of the Islamic group known as FSA. [This is where the uprising began in 2011.] Hizbullah then fired artillery and rockets at Daraa. Losses are unknown.

Earlier an attempt on April 11 by Assad's regime forces to enter Daraa failed when FSA mujahideen killed 16 of Assad's troops including 3 officers, one of whom was a colonel

In the same province, Jaysh Khalid ibn al-Waleed fighters have joined the Islamic State and entrenched themselves in a part of the province.

At the Qaboun entrance to Damascus, the regime fired 4 ground to ground missiles at FSA mujahideen trying to enter the city.

Also, April 11-15, Russian and Assad jets bombed villages in the provinces of Hama and Idlib. Some of the target villages went up in flames.

Also, US jets struck the village of Sukkarieh in southeast Syria on the Iraq border killing 8 civilians who had fled all the way from Aleppo.

Kurdish SDF forces backed by the US air force entered the outlying area of al-Tabaqa [on the way to the Islamic capital al-Raqqa] At least 25 IS fighters were killed resisting the SDF advance. Then by mistake, the US air force bombed SDF killing 18 of its own supporters.

An exchange of populations between the mujahideen villages of Madaya and Zabadani and the Shi'ite-Alawite villages of al-Fuah and Kafriya has begun. About 2000 people plus 400 fighters have been moved from the two Islamic villages to Idlib province and 5000 shias have been transferred from al-Fuah and Kafriya to regime occupied west Aleppo.

Transfers are expected to continue into May.

Also April 15: During the transfer of the shias there was a long pause because the shias wanted to bring out 200 of their fighters to replace 200 of the civilians. During this stalemate, someone exploded a huge car bomb among the stranded evacuees. The death toll has risen to 129 by April 16, including scores of children and 12 of the Ahrar al-Sham fighters protecting the evacuees.

Revenge is proliferating in Syria after the bombing of Aleppo and other cities by Russian jets and Iranian artillery which has killed more than 5000 Muslim civilians.

The regime destroyed all the civilian facilities in Madaya and Zabadani which forced the citizens defending the cities to agree to evacuation in exchange for removal of Shia villages al-Fuah and Kafriya located in the north of the Islamic province of Idlib. Both sides could not defeat their opposition in the 4 cities. The Muslim cities were starving while the shia ones were supplied by the Russian air force.

It is seen as a typical "victory" for Assad because Madaya and Zabadani are near the Lebanese border and the evacuation of these populations opens up the easy route for Assad's connection with the Hizbullah shia militia of Lebanon.

Mosul Week 26. Trump Week 12

Surprises for Baghdad Regime and Western Coalition.
Senior Shia Commander Killed. Areas of Iraq under IS.

During this week, the Shiah armada advanced 200 yards into West Mosul but was beaten back. The Shia forces suffered heavy losses as the ISIS fighters resisted from house to house.

Among the regime troops killed was a top battlefield commander.

AFP has pointed out that many other areas of Iraq are under control of the Islamic State.

Among these the most astonishing report is that 1600 IS mujahideen have gathered in Diyala province near the border wit Iran.

Also, Hawija and large parts of Kirkuk province are under IS control.

Similar is the situation in areas west of Mosul as well as in western Anbar province. Repeated attacks by radical militias on Tal Afar, which is the route to Syria, have failed.

The US-backed regime does a lot of propaganda against IS which sometimes requires research to find out what is happening. Almost two months back, the Shias said that their forces are approaching the central mosque in Mosul in which Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi gave his well known speech. BBC pointed out that the IS flag is still flying on the mosque.

Berkeley, California
A crowd of nearly 1000 pro-Trump, anti-Trump Demonstrators clashed in Berkeley

Reuters Report. April 16.

By Noel Randewich |

BERKELEY, Calif. A melee erupted on Saturday in a Berkeley, California park where supporters and opponents of President Donald Trump were holding competing rallies, resulting in at least 20 arrests as police struggled to keep the two camps apart.

As fist fights broke out between the two sides and people threw bottles and cans over a barricade separating them, police resorted to using to an explosive device at one point in a bid to restore order.

Several people were observed by a Reuters reporter with bloodied faces and minor injuries, but there was no official word on casualties from authorities. Media, citing police, reported that at least 11 people were injured.

Police said more arrests could follow after video shot during the melee was reviewed.

The trouble unfolded when hundreds of Trump opponents staged a counter-rally alongside an event billed as a "Patriots Day" free-speech rally and picnic, organized by mostly Trump supporters



Downfall of the Muslims: A Review

How Religious Groups like Tablighi Jamaat are used by Secular Regimes.

(Part-6) Dr. Firoz Mahboob Kamal

The moral disability & the fallout

The most important cause of Muslims' downfall is not any natural disaster or economic collapse or any epidemic of a killer disease. It is indeed the moral disability that has brought them to the current quagmire. Such disability even kills any fresh attempt to rise up as a civilizational force on earth. If not treated, the ongoing disability can bring moral death. A man survives only as an animal with human shape. None of the physical disabilities brings such a disgraceful end to a man or woman. In the history of mankind, such disabilities caused catastrophic calamities -much worse than any earthquake, epidemic or tsunamis. Hundreds of earthquakes or epidemics couldn't kill 75 million people; but only two World Wars could kill more than that. The ugliest crimes like colonial genocides, imperialist occupations, ethnic cleansings, slave trading, gas chambers, World Wars, and dropping of barrel bombs, chemical bombs, drones and nuclear bombs are indeed the works of these morally disables.

Moral disability takes humans to a level much inferior to animals; the Qur'anic narratives like "ula'ika ka'al an'am, bal hum adal" (meaning: they are like cattle, rather inferior to them) gives testimony to that. The annals of history abundantly display such terrible ills. Like animal, such ill people become insensitive to Truth; even miracles make no impact on them. Cattle search for only for water, grass and grazing fields; they do not ponder on Truth. Hence, the miracles like resurrection of the dead, cure of the born-blind, walking across the sea, foods coming down from the sky, water gushing out of a stone -as shown by Prophet Isa (peace be upon him), and Prophet Musa (peace be upon him), utterly failed to impress them. For the same reason, today, the morally disabled Muslims are turning a blind eye to the horrendous crimes of the imperialists against the Muslims. So, the killers, the occupiers and the bombers are taken as close friends. Even millions of Muslims registrar as the mercenaries to fight their war.

No nation collapsed or disappeared from the history for any physical disability. It is the moral collapse or lewdness that destroyed many nations in the past; and ruined the Muslims as the civilizational power. What could be the worst disgrace for the Muslims that many Muslim countries stand top in the list of the most corrupt countries in the world! What is the impact of their faith and prayers? About 1.5 billion Muslims claim that they believe in Islam; more than a billion take part in five-time daily prayer and month-long fasting in Ramadan; and several millions perform haj and umrah each year; but that couldn't help them to come out of awful moral illness. It owes to a total shift in their agenda of survival. They do not bother about their moral failures. They are so much deluded with the pleasure of worldly gains that corruption has become the major tool of their survival. Hence, "enjoining the right and eradicating the wrong (a'maru bil ma'ruf wa nehi'anil munkar)" - the obligatory Qur'anic mission, enjoys little importance in their practical life. Instead, they are engaged exactly in the opposite mission; so they relish corruption, crimes and even serving in the enemy armies.

Such a shift in the purpose of survival has generated a new set of self-serving priorities and political culture at all levels. This is why, even the worst despots do not face any shortage of supporters on the street. Even those who are known as imams, sheikhs and religious scholars also rub their shoulder with them. A'maru bil ma'ruf wa nehi'anil munkar is not an issue for them; and sharia, hudud, khilafa, and jihad have no place in their life. The Muslims thus display the vilest betrayal of the Cause of Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la. It tells a lot about the severity of their moral illness. How can such betrayal bring any blessing from Him? Awfully, it has incapacitated them fully to understand even the dire consequences of the disease. Hence, how could Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la select such sick people to accomplish His Own vision? So, the Muslims now stand unseated from the position of His khalifa. They show fitness only to work as khalifa of the internal and external enemies of Islam!

The best deed & the worst crime

Moral disease is the commonest and the most calamitous disease of the mankind. Even the physically fit people are not immune to it. Now, it prevails as a global epidemic. Awfully, the damage is eternal. Not only it inflicts a catastrophic damage to the worldly life, but also takes the diseased men or women to eternal hellfire. The virus of the disease is conceptual. Hence, the disease run through thoughts, beliefs and ideologies. Since the pathology lies in soul, can be treated only by curative thoughts, beliefs and ideologies -as was the methodology of all Divine prophets. For that, the holy Qur'an exist as the only final prescription. In the history of mankind, only the holy Qur'an has proven the full treatment efficacy; as treated successfully one of the most morally diseased people on earth 14 hundred years ago. No other prescription has shown similar success in any part of the world in any time. In fact, here lies the greatest and the unique strength of Islam. It possesses the most important and the only curative prescription for the moral ills of the mankind. This is why, Islam is the only target of all satanic forces on earth. In the whole length of human history, never worked such a huge global coalition against any faith as it is now against resurgence of Islam.

The deprivation of Divine knowledge is lethal; it leads to death of soul. It is indeed the greatest catastrophe in an individual's life and also for the destiny of the mankind. Men and women then survive only as a biological entity; but possess full physical ability to commit the worst crime. Thus they possess the full potentials to add worst calamities not only to their own lives, but also to others. The world enters into disastrous wars and World Wars only because of such morally dead people. So, it is the most important task on earth to remove this deprivation of Divine knowledge. People can grow cattle, grains, fruits and vegetables, but can't grow food for soul. It is the exclusive domain of Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la. Hence, He sent down the angel with the Divine knowledge to His apostles to address this crucial issue. And the holy Qur'an survives as the final and the only unadulterated source of such knowledge. So, it is the only life line of moral survival of the whole mankind. Hence it is the greatest deed to adhere to this Qur'anic knowledge. And it is greatest crime to get delinked from that life line of Qur'anic knowledge. So, the prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam therefore said, "Those who learn Qur'an and teach Qur'an are the best people on earth". Hence, Islam has a crucial role to play.

The disease as a religion

The denial of cure of the moral ills has other calamities; it becomes the satanic obsession to live with the disease. Then, it thrives as a culture. Such culture may even survive as a religion -as happened in India. This is why, the most primitive falsehood like idolatry, cow worshipping, snake worshipping, river worshipping and such other practices could survive as a powerful popular culture in India through millenniums. Such cultural cum religious bulwark could effectively protect the falsehood against the Qur'anic Truth during six hundred years' Muslim rule in India. Billions of dollars are being spent in India every year to build and maintain temples, seminaries and other cultural institutions to strengthen such cultural fortification. It has also proven that false propaganda could do miracles; it could promote idols, cows, monkeys and snakes to the rank of goddess. And in such jingoistic cultural milieu, slaughtering cows is a punishable crime but not massacring the Muslims or demolishing mosques. The people thus take huge pride in becoming the defender of falsehood. Therefore, those who want to survive with falsehood and defy Truth -

The replication of Indian model

Since ancient ignorance could survive in India even in modern days with its perfect primitive originality, India works as a perfect model for those who want to stand against Islam. Now the Indian model of cultural fortification against the resurgence of Islam is being replicated all over the Muslim World. Since conversion to idol worshipping, cow worshipping, or snake worshipping doesn't work in the Muslim World, the enemies of Islam have deployed other hybrid strategies. The fortification against resurgence of Islam is being done in the form of a cocktail of nationalism, regionalism, traditionalism, secularism, racism, monarchism, tribalism and other parochial obsessions. Every day, they are inventing new means of distraction from Islamic revival. Billions of dollars are being spent in such projects in the Muslim countries. Thousands of institutions are built by the western money in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Palestine, Iraq, Syria and other Muslims countries to run dance, drama, sports and music classes. As if, these are the cause of Muslims' downfall and miseries! As a part of the project, the Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has become a great fan of kite flying and Diwali. In Bangladesh, the nationalists have become very chauvinistic with the spring festival, new year festival and very recently started with light worshipping in the name of so-called mangal prodip (the lamp of good fortune). To make it integrated with the on-going anti-Islamic cultural cum ideological engineering, the hard core secularists are asking to make it obligatory in the school curriculum. The Afghans and Kurds are fuelled with the new sense of pride and festivity on Nowruz. And in the Arab World, the people are being encouraged to get anchored to their local tribal traditions.

Incompetence for Islam and the complicity in the crime

So the prognosis appears very gloomy; every day the Muslims are drifting to a new low. The physical disabilities may make people frail to do anything good or bad; but that doesn't kill the moral ability to know the right from the wrong. Nor does it destroy the ability to worship the Almighty Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la. Hence, the physically ill people can still pursue the straight path towards the paradise. But, moral disability brings the worst calamity; much worse than a wild cancer. It kills the soul and the morality. Thus it destroys the whole purpose of Islam. Islam wants that every human must live with the Divine Truth. He or she must work as a witness as well as the defender of the Truth. Nothing is more important than this in human life. For that, he or she is called khalifa of Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la, and his job turns into a life-long jihad. And those who dies in defending the Truth is called shaheed -the greatest honour that a man can achieve in his life.

But those who have dead soul can't have the true faith and execute the prescribed job. A seed can't grow on a stone. Likewise, the Qur'anic Truth can't flourish on a dead soul. This is why, recital and memorisation of the holy Qur'an doesn't help those who are morally dead or disable. In fact, the powerful Qur'anic verses are falling on many of these dead souls. Of millions who recite the holy Qur'an every day, a very few could come out as the defender of Truth. Such people make themselves unfit for any Divine guidance. Proclaiming belief in Islam and reciting Qur'an is not enough, it has other implication. A believer must live with the assigned mission. Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la reveals His Own disappointment on those who distract from the belief and disengage from the assigned mission. So, He reveals, "How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and has witnessed that the Messenger is true and clear signs had come to them and Allah does not guide the oppressors?" -(Sura al-Imran, verse 86).

Such distraction from Islamic belief and its mission is indeed the most common disease among the Muslims. Such disease makes them morally sick, hypocrite and wrongdoer. Moreover, it makes them morally incompetent to stand for the Divine Truth. Whereas, a Muslim must show his competence not only in standing for five time prayers and other rituals; but also for sharia, hudud, shura, khilafa and other basics of Islam -as was the practice of every companions of the prophet. This is indeed the bench mark of every Muslim in all ages. Only this way he can pass the obligatory tests in this life and enter paradise. About the test, Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la reveals, "Do you think that you will enter paradise while Allah has not yet known those who did jihad among you and those who are steadfast?" -(Sura al-Imran, verse 142).

Incompetence to stand for Islam doesn't build up alone; it makes people directly or indirectly complicit in serious crime against Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la. People then work as mercenaries in the army of enemies, as happened in almost every occupational war of the enemies in the Muslim lands -as happening now in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Afghanistan. Because of such blatant complicity of the Muslims in crime against Islam, the Muslims have lost many vital things. Sharia, hudud, shura, khilafa, trans-ethnic Muslim ummah and other qur'anic basics have become non-existent in the Muslim World. Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la never recruits witness (shuhada) or defender (mujahid) for His deen from these morally dead or disable people. Nor does He guide these people towards the paradise. Hence come the repeatedly pronounced Qur'anic warnings:"la'yahdi'Allahu qaomazzalimeen","la'yahdi'Allahu qaomal ka'firun","la'yahdi'Allahu qaomal munafiqun","la'yahdi'Allahu qaomal fasiqun" (meaning: Allah doesn't guide the oppressors, the disbelievers, the hypocrites and the wrongdoers). And, those who are deprived of His guidance, they can only pursue a path towards the eternal hellfire. Therefore, downfall in this world is not the only calamity; the worst awaits in the hereafter.

The abuse of rituals

The enemies of Islam never preach idolatry to take the Muslims back to the old days of primitive ignorance. They use and abuse Islam's obligatory rituals to divert them from the core objective of Islam. And the core objective of Islam is not to promote few selective pillars of Islam like five time prayer, fasting, haj, etc. Rather, to build the whole house of Islam. It is all about bringing an overwhelming victory of the Qur'anic code of life with its entirety over all brands of falsehood. Because, it is the only road map to save people from hellfire, nothing is more important for the mankind than working with this agenda.

But awfully, a lot of harms have already been done to the Muslims and to the mankind by abusing Islam's own prescription. One of the 5 pillars of Islam is five-time daily prayer; but it is being badly abused not only to belittle other pillars, but also to dismantle the project of building the whole house of Islam. A prescription of a physician may contain a combination of 5 very important medicines to save a patient's life -as it a common practice in treating a complicated disease. But, if anyone emphasize only one medicine and ignore the other four then it would be equal to inviting death to the patient. It is indeed a homicidal crime. The aim of the prescription is to save a life using all suggested medication; not to glorify a specific item. Likewise, a horrendous crime is going on against the holistic prescription of Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la in the name of promoting five time prayer. The whole objective of Islam to move with its entire Qur'anic prescription; not to promote a single pillar -whatever important it may be. The whole house cum civilisation of Islam can't be built on a few pillars. Along with the pillars, it also needs a huge infrastructure of an Islamic state and its numerous state institutions. It is so fundamental and so indispensable that the prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam and his companions didn't make any mistake to understand its importance. In fact, here lies the greatest gap of understanding between the Muslims of early days and today. So the outcomes are also different. They could attain victory after victory. But, today, the Muslims are sliding to new low every day.

Example of using some pillars of Islam to undermine the others and even the whole project of Islam is huge. Works of an organisation called Tablighi Jama'at provide an illustrative example. Tablighi Jama'at has invented some new methodology -which were non-existent in prophet's day, to distract the Muslims from some highly important Islamic obligations. Like the surge of sufism in the past, Tablighi Jama'at got a huge growth in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Malaysia and many other countries. Its main emphasis is to call the Muslims to the practice of five times prayer. The preachers of this organisation seldom talk about implementation of sharia, hudud, shura, khilafa, Islamic state and jihad. Surprisingly, they have no enmity even with the worst enemy of Islam. They have no quarrel even with the most corrupt and despotic governments of the Muslim countries. Bombs, chemical bombs, barrel bombs, drones and missiles are falling on Muslim men, women and children almost every day. Even many secularists and non-Muslims come to the streets to protest against them. But, they keep their eye blind and mouth tongue-tied vis-à-vis what is happening in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and many other Muslim countries. As if, they have seen nothing and have listened nothing. The same is true with the most of the imams, religious leaders and the common Muslims. In the name of focussing on prayers or other rituals, they stay blind on ongoing deaths, rapes and destruction in the Muslim World. They also pay blind eye on dismantling of sharia, hudud, khilafa, and the Muslim unity. Such self-imposed blindness or silence is highly punishable active crime, and will be awarded with eternal blindness in the hereafter. So, the warning comes, "And whoever is blind in this life, will also be blind in the Hereafter and more deviating from the way." -(Sura Isra, verse 72).

In the past, sufism cum mysticism did the same terrible damage by deflecting the Muslims' attention from the despotic corrupt rulers while they started grabbing the Muslim countries one after another and destroyed Islam's civilizational mission. Even while the Mongol murderers were destroying Muslim cities and massacring men, women and children, they stayed blind. They didn't come out of their homes and khanqas to take part in any jihad against the invaders. They caused a huge mass distraction in the name of purifying heart. What would be worst crime against Islam and the Muslims? The prophet (peace be upon him) didn't leave such legacy. They built sufi khanqas and ran circles of zikr -as if it needs separate institutions to achieve purification. Whereas zikr is the part of Muslims' life even while sitting, walking, working or lying in bed -as mentioned in the holy Qur'an (Sura al-Imran: verse 191). Zikr is all about remembering the mercy, glory and greatness of Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la. Five time daily prayer, studying the holy Qur'an, fasting, haj, charity -in fact all acts of ibadah are zikr. And the greatest zikr takes place in jihad. Under the barrage of bullets, bombs, drones and missiles, zikr of a frontline mujahid gets oceanic depth. A parasitic sufi seating idle in his safe haven can't even think of that.

Sufism and Tabligh Jamaat are in fact two blades of the same scissors. Tabligh Jamaat was started by the people like Sheikh Ilyas and Sheikh Zakaria of India. They didn't hide that they were deeply influenced by sufism. In Sheikh Zakaria's book "Fazayel-e-Amal", he has been introduced by the publisher as a great sufi. These people and their organisations are indeed the part of the same social, cultural and religious engineering to keep the Muslims away from Qur'anic mission. This is why the most murderous rulers are very compatible with them. In response, they, too, do not blame these killers either. As if, condemning and protesting against any massacre or crime is not a part of iman! Whereas, protesting against any genocidal crime by all means is not mere politics, it is indeed the spontaneous expression of true iman. Appeasing the enemies is similar to feeding the crocodiles; it is indeed feeding the enemies' political ambitions.

In India, even a non-political Muslims TV channel like Peace TV was closed down by the anti-Muslim BJP government, but Tabligh Jama'at is allowed to flourish. In Bangladesh, the secularist fascist government is carrying out every brutality against Islam's resurgence. But Tabligh Jamaat is allowed not only to hold an assembly of more than 2 million people each year; but also given the full government co-operation. Every year, even the Prime Minister and the President of Bangladesh -who vehemently oppose any effort that can cause resurgence of Islam in the country, also join the supplication (munajat) part of the ijtima. Tablighi people visit millions of households each year to make people performer of five time daily prayers. But what is the impact of such door to door visits and massive annual congregation on the morality, politics and culture of the Bangladeshi people? In the history of Bangladesh, no other organisation could mobilise such a huge number of people to carry out its task. Such massive efforts are not helping the country to come out of the bracket of one of the most corrupt counties in the world. Moreover, the country has now entered into the darkest segment of its history under the rule of the most violent anti-Islamic fascists. Tabligh Jama'at itself now stands as an evidence that innovation doesn't work. It can only cause huge wastage of time, money and energy. Moreover, it increases the deviation from prophet's tradition.

The basics are ignored

First thing must be done first, and in Islam the first thing is iman (faith). No good deed -even not the sacrifice of life is acceptable to Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la without im'an. Iman is the starting point of a Muslim's life. But such fundamental basic of Islam is being ignored. Five time prayers were made obligatory 11 years after the prophet-hood; but im'an was made obligatory on the first day of Islam. Im'an works as the most powerful engine in a believer's journey towards paradise. It also sets the true direction in life. In absence of im'an, other religious rituals can't save people from hellfire.

After a failed encounter against Prophet Musa (peace be upon him), the magicians who brought im'an in Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la were cut into pieces by the order of Pharaoh. But that terrible torture couldn't distract them from their faith. Such a depth of their im'an impressed Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la so much that He mentioned the event several times in the holy Qur'an and raised their status as the model of true im'an for all people in all ages to come. Although they didn't get any chance to offer a single unit of prayer, but their im'an did the job adequately to please Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la.

Hence, im'an and its implication must be understood before understanding any other pillar of Islam. Without perfection of im'an, one can't perform perfect prayers, haj, fasting or others rituals. And with imperfect iman, people get easily deviated from the Qur'anic roadmap and become friends of the worst enemies of Islam. Truly, this is the case with millions of so-called Muslims in the Muslim World. So, it is the strategy of the enemy of Islam to destroy im'an first; not rituals like 5 times prayer, month-long fasting, haj or zakat. Even the White House and the Kremlin staffs spread prayer mat and offer iftari for the deviated Muslims. But they drop bombs and send drones to kill those who possess im'an on sharia, hudud, khelafat, jihad, Islamic state and global unity of the Muslims.

Like any disease, the moral disease has also its starting point. It starts with the lie in the declaration of ima'an. More than a billion of Muslims claim that they believe in Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la and His prophet (peace be upon him). But how perfect, how sincere is the belief? Belief in Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la and His prophet (peace be upon him) is an indivisible package. Islam is all about believing and practising all components of the package. There can't be any disbelief or compromise in any single element of that. Im'an is inclusive and comprehensive. It is the source of light in believers' everyday life; and shows the Qur'anic straight path (siratul mustaqeem) in every segments of his journey. It is the firm belief not only in the oneness of Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'ala, but also in the truthfulness of His prophet' legacy. It is also the belief in the supremacy of His Sovereignty, His revealed Book -the holy Qur'an, and the Qur'anic prescription of sharia, hudud, shura, khilafa, trans-ethnic Muslim unity, migration and jihad in His way. Iman also entails the belief in the Qur'anic decree of enjoining the right and eradicating the wrong (a'maru bil ma'ruf wa nehi'anil munkar) -as the prescribed mission for every Muslim.

The belief in the prophet (peace be upon him) is also inclusive. His legacy includes not only the preaching of Islam, but also the establishment of an Islamic state. And, he was also the Head of the State. Hence abiding by his tradition entails the practice of his state policy in education, politics, warfare, administration, laws, people's welfare, judiciary, and other practices. His legacy also includes jihad fi sabilillah to defend and expand the territory of the Islamic State. A Muslim also needs to believe in the Qur'anic revelation that obeying the prophet (peace be upon him) is obeying Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'la -as revealed in the holy Qur'an "Whoever obeys the prophet, he indeed obeys Allah" -(Sura Nisa, verse 80). Hence, a Muslim must stick to prophet's legacy; it is an obligation. But if his politics, culture, law, judiciary, economics, state institutions, administration and warfare follow his own obsession or footsteps of the enemy, how can he claim to be a Muslim?

Showcasing of the disease and the disbelief!

The best way of marketing a product is to showcase it in a market place; otherwise even the best product can't catch the public eye. The same is true with Islam. Hence Islam can't be practised in caves; and nor in a place where showcasing of its beauty is restricted. So, migration from such a state is a great ibadah in Islam. The greatest preacher in the human history like Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) couldn't convert more than 200 hundred people in his 13 years' of hard work in Makkah. But when he could showcase the blessing of Islamic state, education, sharia, hudud, social welfare, culture, judiciary and trans-ethnic brotherhood in Medina, a huge mass conversion started. Within a decade Islam appeared as the number one World Power. Other great prophets like Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) and Prophet Musa (peace be upon him) couldn't attain that success because they were not allowed by the evil forces to showcase the Truth. Shaitan and his followers understand the strength of such strategy; so it is their key objective not to allow the Muslims to showcase the beauty of Islam in the form of a full-fledged Islamic state. Rather, they allow only to showcase the disease and disbeliefs of the fake Muslims. Therefore, like protecting the rare animal species, the US-led enemies of Islam are protecting the most despotic corrupt Muslim rulers as the model of Islam in the world. So their disbelief and disease get showcased on the global stage as Islam. The call this ugly perversion as the moderate or mainstream Islam.

Both belief and disbelief in Islam have their own distinctive expressions. Iman (belief) of a true believer expresses through his good deeds -as fire expresses through its heat. So, in the holy Qur'an, iman and amal-us-saleh (good deeds) are mostly mentioned together -as if they are the twin expressions of a believer. Thus, a Muslim turns into a showcase of true Islam. Only this way the early Muslims could work as powerful magnets to attract millions of people to Islam; otherwise they didn't have any propaganda machinery. But now, they are doing the opposite. They have turned into ugly showcase of moral disease and disbelief. True iman, sharia, hudud, khilafa, shura, pan-Islamic Muslim brotherhood, jihad have no place in that showcase. Rather, divisive walls, racial hatred, extrajudicial killings, parochialism, nationalism, secularism, despotism, and corruptions are the parts of it. This way they are serving the cause of Shaitan.

In absence of showcasing of true Islam, millions of visits by Tablighi workers at the doorsteps of the people have utterly failed to make any discernible impact. They tell about im'an, yakeen and ibadah; but these too, have failed to bring any visible change in the behaviour, actions, attitude, politics, and culture of the Muslims. And if iman and yakeen do not have such visible expression, do they really exist? They fail to understand that changing people's beliefs, behaviour, actions, attitude, politics, and culture is a massive task. Prophet Nuh (peace be upon him) spend more than 750 years, but with little gain. Spending few minutes in a group in reciting Fadayel-e-Amal (the commonly recited book of Tabligh Jama'at) or short lectures by laymen or long munajat by bujurgs (old sheikhs) is not going to make any big difference. That didn't work in the past either. The same is true about thousands of non-political Islamic organisations working in Muslim World. It needs to engage in massive social, cultural, educational, political engineering. For that, a powerful Islamic state with its various massive organisational infrastructures are indispensable. And that is the greatest and the most important legacy of the prophet (peace be upon him). How can a true Muslim deny or ignore that? 08/04/2017
