Hadith of the Week

We Are All Shepherds

Abdullah ibn Umar reported: The Messenger of Allah, pbuh, said:,

"Every one of you is a shepherd and is responsible for his flock. The leader of people is a guardian and is responsible for his subjects. A man is the guardian of his family and he is responsible for them. A woman is the guardian of her husband's home and his children and she is responsible for them. The servant of a man is a guardian of the property of his master and he is responsible for it. No doubt, every one of you is a shepherd and is responsible for his flock."

Laila Yaghi Grieves over her Innocent Son Ziyad:
9 years in US Prison.

Today, 9 years ago, they took my son and imprisoned him on charges that one day he might harm someone!!! Our lives have changed dramatically. So much grief and pain for no reason!!!

Nine Years Have Gone
My mind ........
Doesn't want to think anymore
It needs to rest for the rest of its existence
Until it dies or becomes brain dead
Nine years have gone like nothing
Full of pain that has not been acknowledged
As if our souls are not accounted for
While innocence still sits in jail
And puffed bodies become puffed up more
Even the sky feels with us and starts to cry
The moon changes shapes but is the same inside
The sun becomes angry and becomes a darker shade of rage
The sky drapes itself and hides behind the stars
While innocence still sits in jail
How do people feel when they create other people's pain?
How do they not feel with innocence sitting in jail?
Even the Earth somersaults when it feels our pain
If pain could be molded into marching men
These men would march until the end of time
If pain can be dumped into the ocean
The ocean would swell up and Earth would drown itself
And tear the world apart for its part in crime
Against humanity and innocence that sits in jail
9 years of innocence sits behind bars
As broken hearts no longer can bear more breaks
The arteries pump blood with so much trouble
Hardship after hardship has encumbered upon our souls
Our breath, our strength, our existence
But my love towards you never dwindles
Alas, it only increases in folds
The roots of a Pine Tree has roots deep in soil
Your roots are embedded in my heart and womb
A mother's love can never be compensated
Or measured even with the most expensive gold
You are the gold, the diamonds in my life
We will meet in this life if they will or don't will
Because our destiny is not in the hands of men
But in the hands of the Creator who will hold them
......... accountable on the days to come

Latest Khutba

 Dr Kaukab Siddique

Latest Khutba

Are Muslims becoming like the Bani Israel, Awaiting the Wrath of Allah? Qur'an is a book of Guidance, not of stories & History.

Look at the tremendous wealth given to the Saudis and they wasted it.

Look at Muslim silence over massacres in Syria, Iraq, Kashmir, Rohingya, Palestine, Nigeria, Egypt.

On July 27, Br. Kaukab Siddique gave the juma khutba and led prayers at Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeeen in Baltimore, Maryland.

As it's a small masjid, an outline of the khutba is given here for distribution online countrywide, inshaAllah.

Text: And Moses came unto you with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty), yet, while he was away, ye chose the calf (for worship) and ye were wrong-doers. [The Qur'an 2:92]

  1. Many Muslims in America do not realize that our leader is Muhammad, pbuh, the Qur'an was sent to him, and his life is the example for us.

  2. The Qur'an gives high praise to Abraham, Moses and Jesus, Maryam and others, peace be on them. These are all in the PAST tense. They have not left a book or an example for us to follow. In fact their followers garbled the revelations they received and added stories from their own side for which they had no authority.

  3. Look at sura al-Baqarah. Verse after verse, it gives us the story of Moses, pbuh, and the Bani Israel. ["Jews" is a much later name. They were called Bani Israel.]

  4. In each instance, the Bani Israel were given great bounties and blessings by Allah and they were always trying to find ways to skirt around, disobey or misinterpret the revelations sent by Allah. The entire nation was shaded from the sun and fed from the sky and yet they were not thankful.

  5. The worship of the calf is symbolic of their attachment to the goods of the world and their lack of acceptance of Allah's Will [other than a few among them[.

  6. Jesus, pbuh, came with the greatest miracles to the Jews but he got only 12 disciples and the Jews insisted that he, pbuh, be crucified.
    Yayha, pbuh, who was the harbinger of Jesus, was beheaded. They have fabricated obscene and ugly stories about Mariam, peace be on her.

  7. Part 2.

  8. Like the Bani Israel, [Jews], the Muslims of Arabia under Saudi rule were given the great blessing they had not created, wealth of oil. They got so much wealth that they built entire cities with it and even disfigured Makka and Madinah with their signs of wealth and power. Their ancillary in UAE has gone even beyond them in the arrogance of worldly power.

  9. Right across from the Saudi domain are the poverty stricken lands of Somalia, Sudan and most of Africa. The blessing given to the Saudis was not distributed to the needy as it is commanded in the Qur'an.

  10. The entire Ummah is being infected with the carelessness of the Arabian heartland. Look at the sectarians massacring the Muslims in Syria and Iraq! Afghanistan destroyed by NATO! Look at the Hindus terrorizing Kashmir! Look at the Buddhists of Burma slaughtering the defenseless Rohingyas.{News about the horrors in western China ae starting to come out].

  11. Palestine is occupied. Genocide of the Palestinians has been forgotten. Instead Muslim rulers want to recognize Israel. Thankless for the great resources given by Allah, we have forgotten the lessons about the Bani Israel [Jews] given at length in Sura Baqarah and other chapters of the Qur'an. Copying the "interfaith" people we habitually refer to the "Abrahamic" faiths. No, we are the Ummah of Muhammad, pbuh.

  12. Some Muslims, like the Jews, are trying to corrupt the meaning of their holy texts. They don't accept hadith. So they want to interpret the Qur'an as they wish. I ask them: How many times should you do TAWAF? They can't answer because it is only in Hadith. I ask them, why does the Qur'an say : Safa and Marwa are Shaer Allah. They can't answer because it is only in Hadith. And so on.

Du'a: Ya Allah, help us to study the Qur'an and the authentic hadith. Give us unity based on Qur'an and hadith. Give us spouses and children who will stand with us for Islam.



Elections: Can Imran Khan Bring about Change?
Why Can't the Islamic Parties Win?

[New Trend's Pakistan Monitor]

Here are our notes on Pakistani elections of July 25.

  1. Imran Khan is definitely a better person than Nawaz Sharif and his group.

  2. IK took a big step forward on the personal level when he married Bushra bibi, a spiritual hijabi niqabi woman. She in fact addressed the nation on the occasion of IK's declaration of victory. With his spotless character and his spiritual wife, IK is a highly favored leader.

  3. The elections were very well conducted and there were no complaints till the end of the voting. Pakistanis showed great discipline.


  1. Imran Khan is loyal to Islam in a peripheral way and has very little knowledge of Islam. The Islamic groups, all of them, are very critical of him.

  2. Most of Punjab is the stronghold of Nawaz Sharif. IK's competition with NS could destabilize Pakistan's only stable province: Punjab.

  3. There are strong indications that the military cleared the way for IK by tainting, indicting and imprisoning Nawaz Sharif and his daughter.

  4. IK seems to be soft on India and America. He might improve in these areas but more likely he will not be able to be tough.

  5. The great majority of the population did not support his election. About 45 to 50% did not vote at all.

What happened to the Islamic groups?

  1. The Islamic segments of the electorate could not unite. The Brelvi [mostly supporting Nazwaz Sharif] and the Deobandi could not stop mutual opposition..

  2. Islam does not support elections in a context which is heavily unIslamic and corrupt.

  3. The Islamic politicians supported or kept quiet on military operations in Frontier [KP[ and Baluchistan. These provinces in large segments are still under military occupation.

  4. None of the Islamic groups dare to criticize the hegemony of the military.

  5. Jamaat e Islami is the only party which is capable of understanding and opposing secularist assets in Pakistan which are supported by the western powers.
    Notice that the western media completely ignored the tragedy of the Red Mosque.

  6. At the practical level, Pakistani elections, like elections in America, require huge sums of money which the Islamic groups do not have.

  7. Instead of being neutral towards IK, Jamaate Islami joined Fazlur Rahman, an opportunist "Islamic" leader who is the joke of the country.

  8. Maulana Maudoodi was arrested and imprisoned numerous times because the secularist rulers felt challenged by him. Jamaat e Islami is now not seen as a threat by the military. Though the Jamaat has many more women supporting it now than 10 years back but it is still not opening leadership roles for women.

  9. With the manipulated removal of Munawar Hasan, JI seems to have lost its back bone. They failed to hold salatul janaza for Maulvi Fazlullah as they had failed to do before for Abdur Rasheed Ghazi and Shaykh Osama.

  10. Pakistan has tremendous Islamic potential but lacks Islamic leadership bold enough to take risks.

General Sissi's Regime Orders 75 Death Sentences.

July 28. After show trials, the Sissi regime sentenced 75 Islamic political prisoners to death. The executions will be finalized in September. Most of them are from the Ikhwan, including leaders like Issam al-Aryan and Mohamed Baltagi, as well as independent Islamic preachers Safwat Hijazi and Wagdi Ghoneim. 31 were sentenced in absentia.

As the whole trial is a fraud, the Mufti of al-Azhar will be asked to finalize the sentences. He did "forgive" one leader, Mohamed Badaei, last year.

All the prisoners were arrested during peaceful protests.

Amnesty International has denounced the verdicts as devoid of legal process which did not allow the prisoners to present their defense, nor were any of the police or security forces questioned.

Almost 800 other prisoners are being held in sound proof glass cages.

Taliban Attacks +IS Attacks+US air strike

July 28: Six policement were killed in Qalat, the capital of Abul province.

July 27. US air force mistakenly bombed three friendly police posts in the Kunduz area.

July 28: In Jalalabad, IS gunmen killed two guards and injured 6 troops in an attack which panicked workers in a midwife center, but none were hurt.

Nangarhar province has become stronghold of IS.

A top US delegate, Alice Wells, met Taliban reps in Qatar.

Unequalled Tragedy in Assad's Prisons.
Heavy fighting in Western Deraa.
IS Attacks Suwaida province.

July 29. More than 60,000 Muslim prisoners have died over 7 years in Assad's prisons, under torture. This statistic comes from the Syrian Observatory after the Assad regime issued death certficates for about 16000 for publicity of its "lenience."
"The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights documented 15943 civilian deaths, including 125 children under the age of eighteen and 64 woman over the age of eighteen."

The "lenience" publicity did not work because the total number of deaths in Assad's prisons is more than 60,000. Of those killed in prison but not documented yet, 15000 [fifteen thousand] are women.

According to SOHR, another 140,000 prisoners are still alive in Assad's network of prisons.

During a week of fighting in western Deraa province, the regime forces have captured three villages from ISIS [Jaysh Khalid]. The fighters were relentlessly bombed by Russia, Assad's jets, Iranian and Hizb artilllery..

30,000 civilians have fled. More than 200 IS fighters have been killed. Nearly 70 of Assad's troops were also killed.

On July 25, IS attacked Suwaida city and the villages around it. It is a Druze population and 113 armed Druze civilians and 125 of their security

forces were killed. 56 of the IS attackers were also killed. The attackers captured a number of people and are trying to exchange them with IS prisoners in Assad's hands.

Meanwhile, July 25-27, more opposition civilians from eastern Deraa who refused to live under the Assad regime have been bused under Russian protection to Idlib province.

Another interesting development: Kurdish communists who captured north eastern Syria with American air support are offering cooperation with he Assad regime in a "federal" system.

Iranian and Assad artillery are shelling Muslim townships on a daily basis north east of Hama.

Russian air base under attack.

Tiny drones with explosives sent by Islamic groups, [al-Nusra] attacked the Russian air base again on July 29.
This is the 12th tiny drone attack on the Russian air base in Lattakia province . Several tiny drones were shot down by the Russian but Russia is revealling its losses,


Protests Continue in the South, Fighting in North

Widespread protests are continuing in the southern regions of Iraq.

On July 29, troops were called in to disperse protestors who were setting up tents near oil wells for a permanent stay

Saudi Arabia is sending fuel to the Baghdad regime to help it start its system which Iran refused to help for non-payment.

Fighting is flaring as Islamic State fighters are in conflict with regime forces backed by the US air force. The regime is not disclosing its losses, so the reporting remains one sided.

On July 28, IS disrupted three electricity transmission lines in the Hawija area. Another line was blown up in the al-Rasafa area of Baghdad.

July 29. ISIS blew up an electricity station southeast of Kirkuk.

The Baghdad regime suspended the Minister of Electricity.

Regime forces killed 9 IS fighters about 90 km north of Baquba. Another 4 fighters were killed in Samara.

One regime security man was killed and 3 injured when a bomb exploded at an electric pylon in the al-Akba area of Hit.

West of Rutba, the heavily armed Shia militia Hashad al-Shaabi lost 1killed and 8 wounded in a clash with IS.

3 regime security members were killed in a clash at Khanaqin, northeast of Diyala. 4 IS were killed northeast of Baquba.

Eight militants [IS] were arrested in eastern Mosul. Four were killed in Samara.

News within the US

 Islam is liberating Prisoners

Islam is liberating Prisoners even within Prison walls.

Islam isn't just the fastest-growing religion in the world, it's also the fastest-growing faith in U.S. prisons. But why do so many inmates turn to this religion?

Justice for Canadian Student Prisoner

 how you can help

Justice for Canadian Student Prisoner Momin Khawaja -
Slow Death for Crime He Did Not Commit

We are in the 3rd of the petition to "Prime Minister of Canada: Justice for Momin Khawaja - Crime He did not commit" and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name. People of consciousness and humanity have taken active role to support Momin's freedom throughout the world.

Momin Khawaja is a Canadian citizen, a computer entrepreneur and a graduate student and an innocent victim of the "bogus war on terrorism." He had no criminal background and never committed any violence or crime against anybody in Canada or on this planet Earth.

The whole case as you will see the facts in the petition, is a fake imagery of a young law abiding citizen of Canada who has been imprisoned for more than 14 years, once attacked with boiling water burning 60-70 parts of his body and continuously being tortured 24/7 just like the Guantanmo Bay at a Canadian prison. We made repeated complaints to the Canadian Government, ICRC, Amnesty International, Civil Liberties Association and Human Rights Watch but nobody seemed to care for Momin's agony and sufferings as if he is a non-living statistic.

During his incarceration 2004-2009 at the Ottawa Detention Centre, Gary Dimmock, the Ottawa Citizen ("What life's like for Momin Khawaja on the inside", July 7, 2008) described him as "a model inmate" of exemplary moral character.

We request if you will please sign the petition and share it with other members of your community-friends, it will certainly enhance a truly global humanitarian cause of justice and freedom.

My goal is to reach 10,000 signatures and I need more support.

'And [on that Day] the Trumpet [of Judgment] will be sounded, and all [creatures] that are in the heavens and all that are on earth will fall down senseless unless they be such as God wills [to exempt]. And then it will sound again-and lo! standing [before the Seat of Judgment], they will begin to see [the truth]!

"There will be Seven {7} persons sheltered on the Day of Judgment when there will be no other shade besides HIS shade. They are...

  1. A Just Ruler .
  2. a young man who passes his youth in worship and service of ALLAH ~{the Lord of Honor and Glory}
  3. One whose heart is perpetually attached to the 'Masjid'.
  4. Two {2} such persons who Love each other for the Sake of ALLAH, they joined together for HIS sake and parted for HIS sake.
  5. a man who is invited for sin by a rich beautiful woman but declines, saying I fear Allah.
  6. One who gives charity in a secret way without making a show, in a way that his left hand does not know what his right had spent.
  7. One who remembers Allah in solitude so that his eyes overflow !{fill with tears}.

A Little Note...
The Seven people in this Hadith means the seven [ 7 ] types of people that are considered to be very unique and difficult to find. Those special people will have better treatment on Judgment Day. They will not have to wait in the unbearable heat; but rather, will be allowed to wait for their Judgment in the comfortable shade.

"Two {2} people who love each other for the sake of Allah means people whose friendship is not based on materialistic or superficial things, but on their mutual love for Allah...! When one of them becomes corrupted, they are no longer friends...{!}

'Salaams' to all ~
