Hadith of the Week

Abu Musa Al-Ashari, r.a., reported:
The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

"When the child of a servant dies, Allah says to the angels: Have you taken the life of my servant's child? They say yes. Allah says: Have you taken the fruit of his heart? They say yes. Allah says: What has my servant said? They say: He has praised you and said to Allah we belong and to Allah we return. Allah says: Build a house for my servant in Paradise and name it the House of Praise."

Somali American Ilham Omar switches to Israel after winning..

Speaking last week at a candidates' forum at the Beth El synagogue, she affirmed her belief in Israel's right to exist and she said she opposed the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement targeting Israel.

"It is going to be important for us to recognize Israel's place in the Middle East and the Jewish people's rightful place within that region," she said, according to a report .

"I believe right now with the BDS movement, it's not helpful in getting that two-state solution," said Omar. "I think the particular purpose for [BDS] is to make sure that there is pressure, and I think that pressure really is counteractive. Because in order for us to have a process of getting to a two-state solution, people have to be willing to come to the table and have a conversation about how that is going to be possible and I think that stops the dialogue."

{She is replacing Keith Ellison who also started from a synagogue. CAIR publicized Ellison as a FIRST Muslim.]

Live Fire on Shia marchers by military

by Kabir Oyemomi

A confrontation by young members of Islamic movement of Nigeria (IMN), a shia political movement has resulted in untimely death of more than 10 people. According to Sahara Reporters, it was clearly Shown by the video in its (Sahara Reporters') possession that men believed to be Shia were throwing stones at the Nigerian military, who then responded with live fire.

The shia were reported to have been marching to Abuja on the 27th of October, 2018 in preparation for a shia religious event called 'Arbean Symbolic Trek.' The marchers apparently took a route that had not been approved by the security services. In a press release, the military claimed, among other things, that the troops. "escorting ammunitions and missile from Abuja to Army central Ammunitions Depot in Kaduna state were attacked by some members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria." The military spokesperson, Major James Myam, also alleged that members of IMN procession "attempted to overrun the escorts to cart away the ammunition and missile the troops were escorting," and that marchers " established an illegal road block, denying motorists free passage".

The IMN three - day march that began in October in Abuja included a call for freeing of Shia leader Ibrahim el-zakzaky, who has been under house arrest for several years.

The video of the October 27 confrontation, as well as subsequent reports of action by the security services is chilling because, according to Sahara Reporters, it clearly shows how poorly trained the security personnel were, and how willing they were to resort to the use of live ammunition in the midst of marchers and otherwise innocent bystanders.

While the government is urged to prevail on the military on manners of handling matters with civilians, the Shia group can prevent loss of lives if they try to be reasonable in their ways of doing things.

Whenever there is an event by the Shia group in the Northern part of Nigeria, nobody, including government officials, is guaranteed free passage because they believed they are not under the government and not govern by the laws of Nigeria.

Activities of Shia during the Fatimiyah day can spell terror on the people of Zaria, Kaduna State as it is characterized by destroying of properties, rape, maim and all sort of crimes. Many people believe that members Shia in Nigeria were on the increase before 2015 due to grants by government of Iran to the members.

It is also believed that young men and women were joining Shia due to permissibility of Nikkah Muth'ah (brief marriage transaction) by Shia.

Rumors Galore:
Pakistan is rife with rumors that the
blasphemer has been released iin blatant violation of the agreement with the protestors.. Another rumor is that she has not only been released but has been flown out of the country.

The government countered by stating that she was still in Pakistan and has been moved to a secure place.

[Read Jamaate Islami khutba below in that connection.]

Another rumor which the regime has not countered is that an Israeli air liner landed in Pakistan, probably with Netanyahoo visiting Pakistani generals. The Israeli had visited Oman which is not far from Pakistan.

Another rumor has it that Dr. Aafia Siddiqui is about to be released UNCONDITIONALLY from the US prison in Fort Worth, Texas. This is quite sensible because her release would remove some of the bitterness against Imran Khan.

Both parties in parliament, government and opposition, are secular and want Blasphemer released.
by Qaiser Sharif

LAHORE, Nov.9meer, Jamaat e Islami Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said it was astonishing that the political parties which were at each other's throat and were dubbing one another as thieves had ganged up in the parliament to support the release of Aasia Masih detained on the charge of blasphemy. He was addressing a large Friday congregation at Mansoora mosque.

The JI chief noted that political parties which had never accepted the decisions of the Supreme Court in the past stood united to support the apex court verdict in Aasia Masih's case to please the western powers. He said that the nation would have to unite to protect the Islamic laws and the constitution as the rulers were trying to let the huge sacrifices made for the establishment of this Muslim homeland, go waste.

Sirajul Haq said the nation was not satisfied with the Supreme Court decision in Aasia Masih case, therefore, the government should take necessary steps for a review of the entire case and put Aasia's name on the ECL.

He said that the western world had always been giving VIP treatment to the blasphemers while unfortunately, the rulers of the Muslim world, instead of safeguarding the sanctity of the Holy Prophet, tried to protect the blasphemers to earn the goodwill of the west.

The JI chief said that love and respect of the holy Prophet warranted the enforcement of the Shariah because till the time the Islamic system was enforced in the country, the Namoos of the beloved Prophet and the Islamic identity of the country could not be protected.

Sirajul Haq directed the JI workers and office bearers to organize Seerat meetings and conferences all over the country during the month of Rabi ul Awwal and speed up their movement for the enforcement of the Nizam e Mustafa.

CAIR Supported by 101 American Congressmen
New Trend inquiry.

During the recent CAIR Banquet held in northern Virginia, 101 American lawmakers from the Democratic party sent letters of congratulation and support to CAIR.

From reports around the country, CAIR appears to have brought most of America's Muslim elites into clear support for the American power structure. Here is the list of CAIR's "achievements."

  1. Mujahideen groups fighting America are terrorists.

  2. Muslims must vote in elections to drive the assimilationist agenda.

  3. CAIR does not support Palestine, particularly not Gaza.

  4. Israel is a reality and must be accepted.

  5. American Muslims must not support Hamas. Both Hamas and Israel have supported violence.

  6. CAIR supports ISNA which in turn supports the American power structure.

  7. CAIR cannot speak against LGBTq..

  8. CAIR cannot speak in support of prominent Muslim political prisoners such as Aafia Siddiqui and Imam Jamil.

Zionist critics of CAIR see CAIR as their competition for the blessings of the American power structure. Zionists make some moves against CAIR which deliberately [or foolishly] drive upper class Muslims into the ranks of CAIR.

Zionists claim that CAIR is part of the Muslim Brotherhood. However when the Brotherhood was slaughtered by General Sissi in Egypt, CAIR didnt say a word.

Zionists claim that CAIR is a front for Hamas. This is patently false because during THREE invasions of Gaza by Israel, CAIR was silent.

[Years back one person linked to Hamas spoke one sentence in support of Hamas and was later caught for money laundering and imprisoned. This single instance is repeated by Zionists to attack CAIR. It is so absurd that no American government has accepted it.

Three Palestinians who had a fund for children in Palestine were found to have a couple of Hamas brochures in their office. The government supported by Zionists went after the three of them, got them indicted and sentenced. There is no evidence that they helped anyone in Hamas. They had links with CAIR but CAIR abandoned them after they were convicted.

New Trend's conclusion: CAIR is definitely not an Islamic group. It has never supported an Islamic group in any way anywhere in the world.

American Muslims should worry about the betrayal of Islam by CAIR.

Instead Muslim elites are affected by Zionist propaganda and have joined CAIR.

Etiquette of offering Greetings.

Allah~ the Exalted, says: "O you who believe! Enter not houses other than your own, until you have asked permission and greeted those in them.'' [Source~ 'Qur'aan'~ 24:27]

"But when you enter the houses, greet one another with a greeting from Allah (i.e., say: As-Salamu 'Alaikum - peace be on you), blessed and good.'' [Source~ 'Qur'aan'~ 24:61]

"When you are greeted with a greeting, greet in return with what is better than it, or (at least) return it equally.'' [Source~ 'Qur'aan'~ 4:86]

"Has the story reached you, of the honored guests [three angels; Jibril (Gabriel) along with another two] of Ibrahim (Abraham)? When they came in to him, and said, 'Salam (peace be upon you)!' He answered: 'Salam (peace be upon you).'' [Source~ 'Qur'aan'~ 51:24,25]

Abdullah bin 'Amr bin Al-'as (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:
A man asked the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam):

"Which act in Islam is the best?'' He (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) replied~ "To give food, and to greet everyone, whether you know or you do not.'' [Source~Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Feeding poor and destitute is an act of goodness, and so is fulfilling the needs of the indigent. Greeting everybody (saying 'As-Salamu 'Alaikum'), whether an acquaintance or a stranger, is a good manner too. Both of these acts generate mutual love and remove hatred and ill will from hearts. All other forms of greetings do not no substitute for Islamic greeting.

846. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said~

"When Allah created Adam (alaihi as-salam), He said to him: 'Go and greet that company of angels who are sitting there - and then listen to what they are going to say in reply to your greetings because that will be your greeting and your off-spring's.
' Adam (alaihi as-salam) said to the angels: 'As-Salamu 'Alaikum (may you be safe from evil).'
"Assalaamu 'Alaikum" (May Peace be Upon you).
They replied: 'As-Salamu 'Alaikum wa Rahmatullah....
(may you be safe from evil, and Mercy of Allah be upon you).....
"Assalaamu 'Alaikum" (May Peace be Upon you).
' Thus adding in reply to him: 'wa Rahmatullah (and Mercy of Allah)' to his greeting.''

[Source~Al-Bukhari and Muslim].


The Islamic form of greeting - As-Salamu 'Alaikum (may you be safe from evil) - has been in existence since the days of Prophet Adam. According to some Ahadith, it is better to add in response: wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu (and the Mercy and Blessings of Allah).

847. Al-Bara' bin 'Azib (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) commanded us to do seven things:

to visit the sick, to follow the funeral (of a dead believer), to invoke the Mercy of Allah upon one who sneezes (i.e., by saying to him: Yarhamuk-Allah), to support the weak, to help the oppressed, to promote the greeting of 'As-Salamu 'Alaikum', and to help those who swear to do something to keep their oaths.
[Source~Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Muslims have obligations towards one another. The fulfillment of this social responsibility creates among them mutual love, a sense of cohesion and feelings of respect for one another.

848. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said....

"By Him in Whose Hand is my life! You will not enter 'Jannah' until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Shall I inform you of something which, if you do, you will love one another? Promote greetings among yourselves.'' [Source~Muslim].

Iman (faith) is a prerequisite for entry to 'Jannah'. Whereas mutual love among Muslims is complementary to it, and this quality can only be attained by giving a social character to the Islamic form of greeting, that is to say, 'As-Salamu 'Alaikum.'

849. 'Abdullah bin Salam (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
I heard the Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) saying,
"O people, exchange greetings of peace (i.e., say: As-Salamu 'Alaikum to one another), feed people, strengthen the ties of kinship, and be in prayer when others are asleep, you will enter Jannah in peace.''


All these habits and practices are indispensable to a believer because each one of them leads to 'Jannah' with the first people to enter it without being punished in Hell first. At-Tufail bin Ubayy bin Ka'b (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I used to visit 'Abdullah bin 'Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) in the morning and accompany him to the market. 'Abdullah offered greetings of peace to every one he met on the way, be they sellers of petty goods, traders or poor people. One day when I came to him, he asked me to accompany him to the market. I said to him: "What is the point of your going to the market when you do not sell, nor ask about articles, nor offer a price for them, nor sit down with any company of people. Let us sit down here and talk.'' He replied: "O Abu Batn (belly)! (Tufail had a large belly), we go to the market to greet everyone we meet.''


This Hadith highlights 'Abdullah bin 'Umar's passion for promoting 'Salam' which is a practice of Sunnah. Secondly, we can call a person by his epithetic name provided he is not offended by it.
