Hadith of the Week

Don't stray into Gray Areas.

An-Nu'man ibn Basheer , r.a., reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, "Verily, the lawful is clear and the unlawful is clear, and between the two of them are doubtful matters about which many people do not know. Thus, he who avoids doubtful matters clears himself in regard to his religion and his honor, and he who falls into doubtful matters will fall into the unlawful as the shepherd who pastures near a sanctuary, all but grazing therein. Verily, every king has a sanctum and the sanctum of Allah is his prohibitions. Verily, in the body there is a piece of flesh which if upright then the entire body is upright, and if corrupt then the entire body is corrupt. No doubt it is the heart."

Calling on all Muslims to Protest Trump's Statement on Jerusalem

[Courtesy ICT, Greensboro, North Carolina]

West Jerusalem was seized by Israel's forces during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war, when more than 750,000 Palestinians were expelled from historic Palestine, referred to by Palestinians as the Nakba (catastrophe) when Israel was officially founded. Most countries in the world have refused to recognize any country's sovereignty over Jerusalem, a city holy to Muslims, Jews and Christians.

But Trump's announcement on Wednesday gives approval to Israel's plan for ethnic cleansing by allowing the annexing of Jerusalem and constructing a ring of settlements on occupied Palestinian land around its outskirts to sever it from the rest of the West Bank. Trump has legitimized Israel's illegal actions and sent the message that the United States no longer has any regard for international conventions or norms.

Portraits of Injustice: Daughters of the Holy Land Five

The Holy Land Foundation was the nation's largest Islamic charity. In 2007, five men connected with this charity received prison sentences ranging from 15 to 65 years. Did they commit some horrendous crime? No, None of them stole anything. None of them killed anybody. None of them were even accused of engaging in or encouraging violence. They were accused of sending funds for food, shelter, health care and education to schools, hospitals and social welfare programs controlled by Zakat committees of different mosques in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The first trial resulted in no convictions, but in the s econd trial, all five were convicted - convicted of providing humanitarian aid to the needy.

In October, two of the daughters of the Holy Land Five spoke at the NCPCF Family Conference. Their fathers - both very good men - were sentenced to 65 years in prison!

Draconian sentences like these are devastating to the prisoner, and they are also devastating to the family members. Please lIsten to Nida Abu Baker and Asma Elashi as they talk about the cases, and what it means when a family loses the father.

Indian Americans Comment on Hindu Extremism.

Murder of Muslim laborer in Rajasthan sparks outrage among Indian Americans

Diaspora sees direct connection between cultural of impunity and the reckless, incendiary rhetoric of the Hindutva complex

December 8 2017

The Indian American Muslim Council (IAMC), an advocacy group dedicated to safeguarding India's pluralist and tolerant ethos today noted the sense of outrage among millions of Indians, both within India and across the diaspora over the heinous murder of Mohammed Afrazul, a Muslim migrant worker from West Bengal, who was hacked with a cleaver and his body set on fire in Rajasthan's Rajsamand district.

The accused in the case, Shambulal Regar, is captured on video committing the crime and claiming that he committed the murder to "stop Muslims from love-jihad" - a term publicized by Hindu supremacist groups to refer to Muslim men supposedly marrying Hindu women and converting them to Islam as part of some grand conspiracy.

"We are appalled at the horrifying level of hate and violence that not only exists but is worsening by the day, particularly in the state of Rajasthan," said Mr. Ahsan Khan, the National President of IAMC. "We call upon the Rajasthan Chief Minister Ms. Vasundhara Raje to uphold her constitutional duty to protect the lives of all citizens, regardless of caste and creed. This would include reining in organizations like RSS, Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad who have been on the frontlines of spreading hate and discord against the state's Muslim minorities," Mr. Khan further added.

Mohammed Afrazul's killing is the fourth hate crime against Muslims in Rajasthan in the last nine months. Earlier in April, Pehlu Khan was brutally assaulted by self-styled cow vigilantes that led to his death two days later. Later in June, Zafar Hussein was killed after he objected to city officials photographing women defecating in the open. In November, cow vigilantes attacked Mohammed Umar and his colleagues who were transporting cattle, and Umar was later found dead. The perpetrators of these hate crimes are emboldened by the failure of state administration to effectively prosecute these cases of hate crimes. In September, the Rajasthan police closed its investigation into murder of Pehlu Khan and exonerated all six individuals named by Mr. Khan in his dying declaration.

Commenting on this issue, Ms. Seema Salim, National Vice President of IAMC, expressed grave concern at the rising tide of hate crimes in Rajasthan. "The Chief Minister, Ms. Raje must demonstrate the political will to ensure security of the state's Muslim minorities and dismantle the culture of absolute impunity and protection accorded to the perpetrators of these hate crimes," said Ms. Seema.

Q: How do you think the liberation of the areas held by Daesh in Iraq and Syria has promoted the image of Russia and Iran globally?

A: The last strongholds of the terrorists have been annihilated by the Iranian and Russian forces. It can be said that there are very few regions in Syria which are still being held by the terrorists and hopefully total victory will be achieved in a very short time

Pakistanis Rise up for Jerusalem Big Time in Every City
by Ameer al-Azeem & Qaiser Sharif
[Glimpses of 5 cities]

LAHORE, Dec. 8: Country wise protest was held against US President Trump's recognizing Jerusalem as Israel capital, on the appeal of Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, on Friday as thousands of people came out on the roads to express their solidarity with the Palestinians.

 Sharah e Quaid e Azam Punjab

Addressing the protestors' rally on the Sharah e Quaid e Azam in the Punjab capital by telephone, Sirajul Haq said that Trump's announcement was an alarm bell and was tantamount to sprinkling salt on the wounds of the Muslim Ummah. However, he said that the US President would have to face the consequences.

The JI chief exhorted the Muslim rulers to shun cowardice and show courage against the US and its President. He said that the liberation of Baitul Maqdis was an issue of life and death for the Muslim world. He said the US enmity towards Islam and the Ummah was never a secret and Trump had initiated a war which could engulf the whole world.

Stating that no sane person in the world could endorse Trump's mischievous announcement, the JI chief noted that China, Britain, Russia, Germany, France and other major countries had demonstrated a positive attitude by rejecting Trump's decision as was highly appreciable.

He urged Prime Minister Shahid khaqan Abbasi to attend the Rabita Alam e Islami meeting as a spokesman of the nation so that Pakistan was projected as a front line state in foiling the US and Zionist designs.

JI deputy chief Hafiz Muhammad Idrees, addressing the Friday congregation at Mansoora mosque and the protest rally at the Mall, said that the Zionists had occupied the Qibla Awwal in Jerusalem after the fall of the Caliphate in 1924. He said that Palestine and Kashmir had been under the occupation of the Zionists and the Hindus for the last over fifty years due to the non implementation of the UN resolutions. He said the whole world was condemning Trump's announcement.

 Mahabat Khan mosque Peshawar

In Peshawar, a protest rally was held outside the historic Mahabat Khan mosque. JI provincial chief Mushtaq Ahmed khan said on the occasion that Trump had stabbed the Muslim world at the back.

However, he said, that Al-Quds belonged to the Muslims and it would remain so in future. He said that recognition of Jerusalem as Israel capital was a step towards greater Israel and warned that Israel's next target would be the holy Ka'ba.

Addressing an impressive rally in the federal capital, JI Islamabad chief Zubair Farooq Khan, urged the Muslim rulers to follow in the footprints of Turkish President Erdogan and call an emergent OIC meeting that could evolve a joint strategy to meet the challenge thrown by Trump.

JI Rawalpindi chief Shamsul Rahman Swati, while addressing the city rally said that the Satanic powers were out to destroy world peace while the US wanted to sell its arms and ammunition by triggering wars in the whole world. However, he believed that Trump's pro Israel policies would hasten the demise of the US.

JI Faisalabad chief Sardar Zafar Husain Khan, addressing the city rally, said that Trump's aggressive attitude had pushed the world to the brink of third world war. However, he said, that those searching for peace by hurting the sentiments of the Muslims were living in fool's paradise.

Investigating the Holocaust Story.
The key "Witness" was beaten and tortured beyond Human Endurance.

Commandant of Auschwitz
Rudolf Höss, His Torture and His Forced Confessions
Commandant of Auschwitz
By Rudolf Höss and Carlo Mattogno

From 1940 to 1943, Rudolf Höss was the commandant of the infamous Auschwitz Camp. Today's orthodox narrative has it that during this time some 500,000 people were murdered in that camp. Yet when Höss was captured after the war, he confessed to having killed some 2,500,000 during that time. 40 years later, it was revealed that Höss had been severely tortured by his captors right after his arrest in March 1946. But what does that mean for the veracity of what Höss told in his various post-war statements?

Using various British documents, the author of the present study pieces together an almost minute-by-minute recounting of how the British managed to find Höss in his hiding place, and how they abused him after his capture to extract various "confessions" from him.

Your browser does not support the video tag, but you can download the video here.

To separate truth from fiction, the author next presents essential excerpts from all the statements made by Höss after his capture: 85 individual documents in total (affidavits, memos, essays, interrogation protocols, etc.). By analyzing them meticulously, he demonstrates that Höss's statements about the so-called "Final Solution of the Jewish Question" contradict one other and are refuted by historical facts established by solid documentation and material evidence. Höss, the author concludes, initially "was a coerced liar, but then he found a taste for the grandiloquent lie."
