Hadith of the Week

Repay your Debts

Narrated by Abu Huraira:

A man came to the Prophet and demanded a camel (the Prophet owed him).
Allah's Apostle told his companions to give him (a camel).

They said, "We do not find except an older camel (than what he demands). The Prophet ordered them to give him that camel.

The man said, "You have paid me in full and may Allah also pay you in full."

Allah's Apostle said, "Give him, for the best amongst the people is he who repays his debts in the most handsome manner."

Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 41, Number 578.

Benue State

Massacring Muslims and then Blaming them.
A Web of conspiracy and disinformation

by Kabir Oyemomi

A group of Fulani community known as Gan Allah Fulani Development Association(GAFDAN) has blamed the Benue State government on endless killings and destroying of properties, citing the enactment of anti-open grazing law initiated by gov. Samuel Ortom as the agent of destruction!

GAFDAN insinuates the law to be draconian, repressive ,and peace breaching in nature. It also alleges that the law puts the economic lives of Fulani population in Benue State and Nigeria at large at serious risk. The leadership of GAFDAN observes that the lawlessness which led to the death of scores of farmers and herdsmen in the state during efforts to enforce the November 1st,2017 anti-open grazing law in the state is condemnable.

GAFDAN states that relative peace in Taraba State despite the alleged killing of over 900 herdsmen on the Mambilla plateau of Sardauna Local Government Area of the state between 17th and 23rd June,2017 is due to the legal intervention by the Association by employing the services of Prof. Yussuf Dankofa who filed a suit against Taraba State Government and the Federal government at the ECOWAS court and International Criminal Court of Justice at The Hague respectively , seeking justice for the victims.

The group however promises to always operate within the ambit of the law and constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as a law abiding association and therefore call for cessation of hostilities in Benue between the Benue State government, the farmers and the herdsmen.

In another development, 3 suspected herdsmen militant were reportedly arrested by the Nigerian troops following intense gunfire exchange at Tormatar village in Benue State. The commanding officer of 72 Battalion , Lt. Col Sulaiman Muhammed , revealed that the troops of the 707 Special force Brigade in Markurdi, nabbed the trio while they were planning further attacks on the state. Muhammed gave the names of the suspects as Abubakar Usman, Adamu Likita and Yusufa Alhaja. According to the reports, the following were recovered from the suspects; two AK47 riffles with six rounds of 7.62MM special ammunition.

In the whole saga, however, what seems to be the biggest deal is the arrest of Aminu Yaminu , also known as "Tashaku", who is believed to be a major Boko Haram suspect masterminding most of the recent attacks in Benue State . The suspect was said to have been arrested on Friday, April 27 in Markurdi by a combined team of troops of 707 Special Forces Brigade, Nigeria Police and Department of state Services(DSS). The army disclosed this in a statement issued on Friday by the Assistant Director , Army Public Relations, 707 Forces Brigadein Markurdi, Olabisi Olalekan Ayeni.

But the twist to the matter is whereas the Army described the suspect as a.k.a Tashaku PREMIUM TIMES findings revealed that the suspect's name is Aliyu Teshaku (head of Benue Livestock guards) whose arrest the leaders of Miyyeti Allah had repeatedly called for, while accusing him of enforcing the anti-open grazing law and leading militia allegedly raised by Gov. Samuel Ortom.

He was once arrested at the force headquarters in June 2011 when he turned himself in after being declared wanted as a Boko Haram suspect. But he was later released by the Defence Intelligence Agency(DIA), then headed by Babagana Monguno, now the National Security Advicer, in September 2011.
The Police said they released Mr. Teshaku to the DIA in the spirit of inter agency cooperation after the agency requested for him.

Mr. Teshaku became the head of Civilian Joint Task Force, tasked with checking herdsmen attacks in Benue and Nasarawa States in 2013. But his group later changed its name to Benue Livestock Guards following the introduction of anti-open grazing law in Benue State last year. Following the January 1st killings of over 100 people in Logo and Guma local government areas of Benue, Mr. Teshaku was accused of being the head of militia allegedly raised by Gov. Ortom.

Also, in January this year, Nigerian Soldiers arrested nine suspected killer herdsmen on the Benue boarders with Taraba State. Mr. Teshaku was accused of providing arms to the suspects.

But in an interview with the Nigerian Tribune shortly after the allegations, Mr Teshaku accused the military of trying to frame him. He also said the military was carrying out the agenda of Miyyeti Allah, which remained vehemently opposed to the anti-open grazing law.

Gov. Ortom also denied the allegation of raising any militia, saying the Nigerian Security Agencies should rise to their duty and end the killings of people.

Governor Samuel Ortorm inherited Mr Teshaku's group from former governor Gabriel Suswam and kept it in place because of continued attacks by suspected herdsmen.

Unfortunately, Nigerian Media only reports cases of killing against Fulani/Muslims but keeps mum when Muslims are the victims. For instance, on April 26, 2018,27 Muslims were killed by Christian youths and two mosques were razed down. The leader of Izala movement in Benue State, Sheik Shuaibu said a lot of Muslims have been killed but Benue State Police Command is yet to speak on incident.

Nigeria media in conspiration with Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN)can go to any length at making mischievous and false reports against Muslims.

There is no doubt that there are *many more* hungry brothers and sisters in Ethiopia than there are here in Baltimore, America, and/or practically anywhere else on this earth! And now there is AGAIN the threats that come with droughts.

If you have ever seen the look of desperation owing to empty stomachs, lack of direction and support in the eyes of children—many who live on the streets, homeless men and women who sit and lay on the ground day in and day out, surely you cannot pass them by! Give to our Feeding Program in Ethiopia; Allah will Bless you with more abundance, and we Thank You in advance.

Help us in these efforts and follow us in the New Trend Magazine as we report our progress. See our previous reports also. We are working in Ethiopia because of the large number of hungry people on the streets there.

It is not a contest of who is more hungry; it is the fulfillment of what Allah has commanded:

" With the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Hast thou ever considered (the kind of man) who gives the lie to all moral law? Behold, it is this kind of man that thrusts the orphan away, and feels no urge to feed the needy. Woe, then, unto those praying ones whose hearts from their prayer are remote—those who want only to be seen and praised, and, withal, deny all assistance (to their fellowmen)!"
(Holy Quran, Surah 107 -Assistance
May Allah Help us All. Amen.


Israel Crushing Unarmed Palestinians rallying in their Own Land.

[Even this Jordan Times report is unfriendly.]

GAZA CITY, Palestine — Six Palestinians were injured by Israeli gunfire near border of the Gaza Strip on Saturday, according to the Health Ministry.

In a statement, ministry spokesman Ashraf Al Qidra said two children and a medic were among those injured by Israeli gunfire, Anadolu news agency reported.

One of the injured Palestinians was in a serious condition, the spokesman said.

The Israeli forces, for its part, said in a statement its forces spotted a number of Palestinians while crossing a security fence on Gaza border to do an act of "sabotage".

The military said Israeli forces opened fire on them and forced them to retreat, Anadolu said.

For the last five weeks, Gazans have staged mass rallies along the strip's eastern border to demand the "right of return" to their homes in historical Palestine from which they were driven in 1948 to make way for the new state of Israel.

On Friday, Israeli forces fired live rounds and tear gas at Palestinians who thronged the Gaza-Israel frontier and rampaged at a border terminal as part of the long-running protest, injuring about 1,100 people, Reuters reported.

Medics said around 82 people were shot and wounded with live fire, another 800 treated for gas inhalation and the rest for other injuries along the Gaza side of the 40km border fence, where Palestinians set up tent encampments on March 30 for what they call "The Great March of Return".

Youths rolled burning tyres to within 300 metres of the fence, trying to use the smoke as cover for throwing stones across it while eluding Israeli snipers. Army gunfire has killed at least 43 Palestinians on the frontier over the last month, according to Reuters.

Protesters said they used slingshots to down two small Israeli observation drones. The army confirmed the drone losses.

Hundreds of Palestinians entered Kerem Shalom, an industrial crossing point on the border. One of them said over social media that they had "torched rooms used by the occupation".

The Israeli army issued footage showing fires at Kerem Shalom, but said the damage was limited to the Palestinian side.

"The rioters are damaging the pipes that carry fuel and gas from Israel into the Gaza Strip," the army said in a statement.

Facing international censure over its use of live fire in the protests, the Israeli army says it is protecting its border and takes such action only when protesters, some hurling firebombs and trying to plant explosives, approach too closely.

On Friday, troops faced "10,000 Palestinians participating in riots in six locations along the Gaza Strip border", it said.

As Israel celebrates its 70th birthday, Palestinians mourn what they call the "Nakba" (Catastrophe) of their people's mass dispossession during the conflict that broke out in 1948.



Controlled Media have Played a central Role in Dividing the Muslim ummah.
by Kaukab Siddique

It's a pathetic situation when Muslims are told what to think by those who want Muslims to lose.

Palestinians from Gaza are rallying within the narrow territory they have. Israel has shot more than 2000 of them of who more than a hundred have been killed.

Any response in the Muslim world? Negligible though they all claim to support Palestine.

Bashar Assad, with the help of Iran, Russia, Hizb of Lebanon has killed almost half a million Muslims in Syria, has a 100,000 prisoners, has raped 40,000 women, and killed more than 10,000 children after torture [ to "persuade" their parents to surrender] Millions of Syrians have become refugees.

Any Muslim response? Negative! Muslims have closed their borders to volunteers who want to join the resistance.

The Islamic caliphate has been destroyed. Most Muslims believe the Caliphate was the worst thing which ever happended.

What about Rohingyas, Yemen, Somalia, Libya, Egypt, northern Nigeria, Kashmir? Hardly any response.

It's not that Muslims don't care. More Muslims are battling the West today than ever before in 300 years. But there are more than 2 billion Muslims in the world and most of them accept the wstern narrative that the opponents of the West are terrorists. Acceptance of Israel and even homosexuality is increasing.

A major reason for this situation is that corporate-Zionist-Russian-Indian-Iranian media are busy around the globe to support the anti-Islamic narrative. They have representatives in just about every country. They report on every situation and it is almost always against Islam or in favor of an "Islam" which is as tame as a puppy dog.

Muslims must create a genuine Islamic narrative. Social media and related developments have made it possible for Muslims to defeat the major media. Unity of mosques and communities should be achievable.

Many non-Muslims will support us inshaAllah. Millions are sick of the world they live in.

Deart Muslims, read, write, speak, rally, reach out. Speak the truth from the Qur'an and hadith. The new generation, masses of oppressed people, are waiting to accept the genuine Islam, the Islam of Malcolm X, Jamil al-Amin, Dr. Omar Abdel Rahmsan, r.a., and Dr. Aafia in America, the Islam of Muhammad, pbuh, Ayesha, r.a., Khalid ibn al-Waleed, r.a., globally.

Islamic Solidarity with Workers on May Day.
by Qaisar Sharif

LAHORE, May 1; Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that a society which did not give respect to the workers, could never develop. He was addressing railway workers at a May Day function of the Railway PREM Union, at Railway workshop.

The JI chief briefly took part in the work at the washing line and later took lunch with the railway workers and coolies to express his solidarity with the workers. Earlier, he had breakfast with the Mansoora staff and enquired about the welfare of the staff members.

Sirajul Haq said that Islam had declared the workers as Allah's Friends and the Holy Prophet (pbuh) , had kissed the worker's hands and said that hell fire would not touch the hands which earned Halal livelihood.

He said that present social system had failed to protect the rights to the workers and during the last seventy years, the workers and kisans were not provided any opportunity to develop. On the other hand, the feudal lords, vaderas and capitalists had been exploiting the masses and reaping the fruit of their hard labour.

The JI chief the government should be thankful to the railway workers who had revived the railways through their hard labour and pointed out that the rulers had destroyed the railways like the PIA.

Later, while talking to the media at railway workshop, Sirajul Haq said that the Pakistanis working abroad were remitting twenty billion dollars to the country every year but the rulers were unlawfully transferring big chunk of this money abroad. He said that there was no arrangement for the education and health of the workers children.

PREM Union President Hafiz Salman Butt, National Labour Federation President Rana Mehmud Ali, JI Lahore chief Zikrullah Mujahid, and JI Information Secretary Qaisar Sharif, were also present on the occasion.

by Dr. Kaukab Siddique [Pennsylvania]

Is It True That Hadith Were Not Written in the time of the Prophet, pbuh?
Were Qur'an and Hadith transmitted by same people or different ones?

Question from Sis. N. in Detroit
I am originally from Iran, moving to real Islam, Qur'an and Hadith. I read a good book by Fazlur Rahman (Chicago University) but it confused me on some points. He writes, Hadith was written in third century after the Prophet. New Trend's web site says follow Qur'an and Hadith. I am confused please explain why Hadith was not written in time of the Prophet ?

ANSWER by Kaukab Siddique:
Unfortunately it seems from his writings that Dr. Fazlur Rahman was significantly influenced by Christian missionaries and Jewish orientalists.

His writings were such that they confused the Muslims of Pakistan. However he had the support of the military government, but eventually was defeated and fled to America where he was immediately given a senior position at Chicago University to teach Islam.

Both the Qur'an and the Hadith were written down in the time of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The Qur'an is the word of Allah revealed to Muhammad (peace be on him). The Hadith is the commentary, explanation, implementation of the Qur'an by Muhammad (pbuh). Both are interlinked and essential to each other. No authentic Islamic scholar has ever tried to say that Hadith is not necessary or was written later.

The people who wrote down the Qur'an, on bits and pieces of materials, were the SAHABA or companions of the Prophet (pbuh). Paper and printing were not available at that time. So, people could not go around with printed and bound copies of the Qur'an. Even the collation and putting together of the Qur'an was done by the SAHABA so that the Qur'an became a BOOK between two covers after the Prophet (pbuh) passed away. This great work was done under the supervision of Abu Bakr, Umar, Osman and Ali (may Allah be pleased with them all) who were the first four rightly guided Caliphs of Islam.

The same SAHABA also wrote and transmitted the Hadith and made sure that nothing was falsely attributed to the Prophet (pbuh).

The QUR'AN was also MEMORIZED by the Sahaba. In fact few of them had it in writing but many of them knew it from memory. The cross checking of memory with writing was carried out to make sure that the Qur'an as revealed to the Prophet, pbuh, was transmitted to future generations.

The HADITH was also memorized by the SAHABA and transmitted to future generations. Any scholar of Hadith had to MEMORIZE the HADITH from the written collections of the Sahaba and then RECITE IT FROM MEMORY to his/her teacher. Thus an accurate record of the Prophet's, pbuh, life and teachings was enshrined in the scholarship of the Muslim world.

In the era after the SAHABA various kinds of sects arose which tried to disseminate their own versions of the Qur'an. Some of them claimed that Hazrat Ali (r.a.) had received suras of the Qur'an from the Prophet, pbuh, which no one else had. The scholars of the line of Ali (r.a.) and Fatima (r.a.), such as Imam Jafar and Imam Baqir, were able to repudiate these claims because they had the Qur'an both by memory and in writing.

Similarly attempts were made to invent "Hadith."

This was a very serious effort by Kings and emperors who wanted religion to justify their tyranny and to creatre a "tame Islam." The problem was aggravated by the fact that various SAHABA had migrated to various cities, and after they passed away, various people could claim that they had heard Hadith from them.

It was in that context that great scholars like Imam Bukhari stepped forward to ENSURE that fabrications did not enter the corpus of Hadith. I think that these scholars were a bit too strict and as a result they sometimes designated as "weak" even those Hadith which were authentic but which would not pass the test of extremely severe scrutiny.

Imam Bukhari and other imams are the ones Dr. Fazlur Rahman was abusing when he claimed that Hadith was written in the third century after the Prophet. Fazlur Rahman really was quite ignorant of Hadith and hence recklessly fell into the trap set for him by Christian missionaries and Jewish orientalists.


Yes! the evidence is overwhelming.

Here is one sample from a prominent companion of the Prophet, pbuh, Abdullah ibn Umru ibn al-Aas. It is authenticated by two distinct and separate compilers of Hadith, Abu Dawud in his Sunan (chapter kitabut al-ilm) and Darimi in his Musnad (chapter on Rukhs fi kitabut al-ilm):

"Whatever I heard from the messenger of Allah, peace be on him, I would write it down so as to be able to memorize it. Then some in the Quraish (tribe) said to me: You write down whatever you hear though the messenger of Allah is a human being and speaks both in anger and in joy. On hearing that I stopped writing and then I mentioned this to the messenger of Allah. He pointed with his finger to his mouth and said: Write on! By Him in whose Hand is my being, no word comes out of this mouth but the Truth."

Abdullah ibn Umru (r.a.) collected the Hadith he had written in the presence of the Prophet (pbuh) in a book titled Al-Sadiqa. Abdullah said: "There are two things I love in life: Al-Sadiqa and al-Wahat." He explained: "Al-Sadiqa is that manuscript which I heard and wrote from the messenger of Allah and Wahat is that land which (my father) Umru ibn al-Aas donated to the cause of Allah and which I take care of." [Darimi's Sunan.]

The compendium Tahzeeb al-Tahzeeb tells us that on the death of Abdullah, r.a, the manuscript of Al-Sadiqa was secured by his grandson Shuaib bin Muhammad and then transmitted to the next generation by his son also named Umru. THE HADITH WRITTEN BY Abdullah, r.a., DIRECTLY FROM THE PROPHET, pbuh, AND AT HIS COMMAND, are to be found in the collections of Hadith which we have under this chain of narration:

"From Umru son of Shuaib from his father from his grandfather." As Hadith is a very strict discipline, some classical scholars wanted to classify the collection as Mursal because they thought the grandson should have SAT DOWN IN FRONT OF THE GRANDFATHER AND RECITED THE WHOLE COLLECTION TO HIM FROM MEMORY! However, some of the greatest scholars of Hadith, like Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, accept the authenticity of Al-Sadiqa.

What makes Al-Sadiqa's authenticity irrefutable is that it was also transmitted by OTHER STUDENTS of Abdullah (r.a.) who had nothing to do with his grandson.

So, don't let anyone tell you that Hadith was not written in the time of the Prophet, pbuh.

FINALLY, spend a couple of months in trying to understand this verse of the Qur'an. It will help you to understand why the Hadith is essential and ALWAYS goes with the Qur'an:

"The Prophet is closer to the believers than their own selves, and his wives are their mothers. [33:6 ]

Hafiz Zubair Ali zai ( Urdu: زبیر علی زئي‬‎) was a preacher, theologian, Islamic scholar, muhaddith and former merchant marine from Pakistan.

"Zubair" was from the Pashtun tribe of Alizai, itself a branch of the larger Durrani confederation tracing their descent back to Ahmad Shah Durrani, founder of the Durrani Empire.

Zubair was born in 1957 in the village of Peerdad, near Hazro in the Attock District of Punjab. His father having served two jail sentences for his membership in the Jamaat-e-Islami Islamist political party, Alizai became familiar with corruption and civil strife early on. [1][ unreliable source?]

Zubair married in 1982 and had three sons and four daughters. He was a polyglot; in addition to his native language of Hindko language and the Arabic language from his graduate study, Alizai was also fluent in English, Urdu, Pashto and Greek, and could read and understand Persian. [1][ unreliable source?]

Zubair completed a bachelor's degree and later on two master's degrees, one in Islamic studies in 1983 and another in the Arabic language in 1994 from the University of the Punjab in Lahore. Additionally, Alizai graduated for a fourth time from the Salafi University in Faisalabad.
