Hadith of the Week

Abu Huraira,r.a., reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:

The gates of Paradise are opened on Monday and Thursday. Allah forgives every servant who does not associate anything with him except a man with hatred between himself and his brother. It will be said: Delay these two until they reconcile, delay these two until they reconcile.

 Friday Khutba

Don't Condemn Women enslaved by the American Power Structure.

How the Qur'an was Revealed, Collected and Compiled Should Guide us.
Sahaba, r.a., of the Prophet, pbuh, are More important than Any Leaders we have Today.

 Dr Kaukab Siddique

On December 7, Br. Kaukab Siddique gave the Juma' Khutba at Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in Baltimore.

The masjid was crowded but it is a small masjid, so here is an outline of the khutba for online distribution.

It is We [Allah] Who have sent down the Qur'an to thee [O Muhammad] by stages. [The Qur'an 76:23]

  1. Teachers of the Qur'an should know that the Qur'an was not revealed all at once. The shorter suras [chapters] teaching faith, Hereafter, prophethood, against slavery and mistreatment of females, were revealed in Makka. The long Suras, al-Baqarah, Ale Imran, etc were revealed in Madina and built upon faith to teach law, formal worship, responses to Christians and Jews, organization & leadership, Jihad and striving for victory.

  2. The process was: Allah revealed the Qur'an to the heart and soul of Muhammad, pbuh, and the angel helped him to memorize it. Then the prophet, pbuh, taught it to his companions, sahaba, r.a., and as the suras became longer, memorization was combined with writing. A whole group of sahaba, r.a., did the writing.

  3. Allah, through the angel, instructed the Prophet, pbuh, to arrange the Qur'an as it is today.

  4. All the written pieces were checked with memorization by a committee set up by Usman, r.a., the third Caliph.

  5. Explanation and implementation of the Qur'an was carried out by the Prophet, pbuh. This is the Hadith which was memorized and written down by the sahaba, r.a. Thus opinion based interpretations of the Qur'an were avoided.

  6. Most of the teachers of the Qur'an in America today do not do not explain the Qur'an as it was explained by the Prophet, pbuh. Most of these are opinion based teachings, out of context, and often mislead the Muslims.

  7. For instance, these teachers are busy claiming that Islam is "a religion of peace." That is true, but it is also a religion of Jihad and Muslims have a duty to oppose and defeat oppressors, tyrants, kings, occupiers and aggressors.

  8. Part 2.

  9. We have all kinds of leaders, scholars, group directors and self-proclaimed mystical teachers interpreting Islam out of context They ignore the text of the Qur'an as explained by the Prophet, pbuh, and nit pick a verse here, a verse there, to please the American power structure or to propagate their
  10. Allah gave us the sahaba, r.a., as the SPEARHEAD of the Islamic movement to project the Qur'an and the Hadith. NONE of the Muslim leaders are equal to the sahaba, r.a.

  11. The Qur'an has taught us that nobility and superiority is based on Taqwa, conduct and character, not on gender and race. However, many Muslims think men are superior to women. Others think Arabs are superior to non-Arabs. They ignore conduct and character.

  12. Things have come to such a pass that now self-appointed leaders of America's Muslims dare not condemn the existence and legitimacy of Israel or the evil of fornication and homosexuality.

  13. Unity is essential but it has to be based on Qur'an and authentic hadith, not on race or nationality.

  14. Women in America are enslaved by the power structure to entertain the males. They are projected through countrywide advertising, movies and pornography as mere objects of pleasure for the males. So if you see the women showing their legs or body parts, don't try to condemn them, They are slaves of the male culture and are doing, in many cases, what the mass culture wants them to do. Think of them as mothers, wives, daughters, nieces, aunts to be able to relate to them within the limits of our TAQWA.

du'a: O Allah give us success in this world and in the Hereafter. Give us spouses and children who will stand with us for Islam. Help us, O Allah, to study the Qur'and hadith on an ongoing basis. Ameen,

Pakistan should cancel all its DEBT
By Hussain Khan, Tokyo

Political, legal, economic, moral, environmental and religious justifications and arguments have been provided for cancelling all Debt by the internationally renowned economists like Toussaint and Millet in their book, "Debt, the IMF, and the World Bank: Sixty Questions, Sixty Answers."

Eric Toussaint is rather leading a worldwide movement for Abolition of Third World Debt. He is also president of the Committee for the Abolition of Third World Debt (CADTM), and author of numerous books on economic policy.

One good example they have given is that of President Bush. When American forces got complete control over Iraq, he was asked to pay all loans of Saddam regime. He totally rejected the idea. He called those loans as "Odious". Such loans don't deserve any payment. He refused to pay a single penny. Whole world accepted his logic. No one criticized him for default of all Iraq DEBT.

Is there not a similar case with Imran Khan? Why should he be reluctant to make such default of all previous IMF loans given to previous corrupt regimes? Are the loans inherited by Imran regime not as odious and illegitimate as those of Saddam regime?

Was IMF blind to the fact that Zardari and Nawaz regimes were lining their own pockets much more than using this huge money entirely for the development of the country and to reduce poverty? Now they are facing NAP and Court investigations for the crime of their assets being beyond means. Have the IMF loans not contributed for the enormous increase in their assets beyond means and even for a similar increase in the assets beyond means of some of their Ministers like Ishaq Dar, who is also now under investigation for the same crime?

Was the IMF so innocent that it was not aware of all such crimes? In that case, it rightfully deserves the punishment for its ignorance and blindness to the glaring facts and realities of these corrupt regimes.

There is no logic in the argument that our countrymen who have not benefited from IMF loans should be responsible to pay them back to cover up the corruption of their past political leaders.

Not only these authors but other renowned Economists like the former Chief Economist and Vice President of World Bank, Noble Laureate, Chairman of President Clinton's Council of Economic Advisors, Joseph Stiglitz has vehemently criticized and pinpointed hypocrisy, which he has observed closely and at first-hand, of the West and of its financial institutions like, IMF, World Bank and others, in his various books, articles and video talks. He has directly accused IMF for deliberately offering such 'Odious' and illegitimate loans with sinister designs. It will be clear from his following passage:

"The issue of the moral responsibility of the creditors was particularly apparent in the case of cold war loans. When the IMF and World Bank lent money to the Democratic Republic of Congo's notorious ruler Mobutu, they knew (or should have known) that most of the money would not go to help that country's poor people, but rather would be used to enrich Mobutu. It was money paid to ensure that this corrupt leader would keep his country aligned with the West. To many, it doesn't seem fair for ordinary taxpayers in countries with corrupt governments to have to repay loans that were made to leaders who did not represent them."------Stiglitz in his book, "Globalization and its Discontents".

In the above passage, Stiglitz has revealed the sinister design of IMF that such 'Odious' loans were deliberately given by IMF to corrupt regimes to keep these countries aligned with the West.

IMF has deliberately given such loans to corrupt Zardari and Nawaz regimes to keep Pakistan aligned with the West. History shows that both these regimes were puppets of the West. These regimes have done their duty faithfully and have even hired lobbying firms in Washington to let them be counted in good books of all American governments.

IMF should go to them and ask for repayment. Why Imran Khan Regime should be held responsible to pay what IMF has loaned to these corrupt regimes for its own selfish ends?

Stiglitz further advocates that any country which is heavily laden with DEBT should not be forced to pay it. The reasons may be corrupt governments or anything else. Such loans should be written off. Or such countries should default and declare bankruptcy without any scruples.

Economically, Stiglitz argues, such IMF loans accompanied with its policies make it impossible for them to pay back. As a matter of fact a vicious circle takes place. He has given many examples of how IMF policies are responsible for making them unable to pay back loans. IMF policies push for taking Austerity measures. It compels loan-receiving countries to increase interest rates and taxes resulting in further increase in joblessness, devaluation of local currency and inflation. In Greece and many other countries people demonstrated against IMF policies and revolted against them in Iceland. These enforced IMF policies further shrink economies of the loan-receiving countries. It thus creates an Economic Model, in which countries have to take new loans to pay back mainly the increasing Interest on previous loans. Loans go on multiplying themselves and the payback becomes more and more difficult, rather impossible. It also shows the wisdom of Quranic verses which bans all Interest on loans given to needy individuals or countries.

If they could not increase their own exports over their imports to generate sufficient foreign currency reserves to pay back loans after the 1st or 2nd loan from IMF, the increasing burden of new loans with more and more to pay mainly Interest charges, they will never be able pay back these loans for ever. Thus under this Economic Model, such countries can never stand on their own legs to be really able to pay back loans at any time in future. There is no way to break such a vicious circle except to write off all such debts or such countries default on loans and declare bankruptcy.

Japan soon after its defeat in WWII had to declare bankruptcy. Argentine. Russia and several other countries had to do the same. Thereafter all of them revived their economies and some of them paid back their loans in small installments of their choice. Stiglitz gives examples of Germany and Greece in the following passage:

"Stiglitz warned that Germany, a major beneficiary of debt write-offs following WWII, had not learned the lesson of its own history. Officials are blind to the reality that debt forgiveness is necessary for Greece at a time when nearly everyone, including the International Monetary Fund (IMF), recognizes that the country simply can't pay back what it owes. Instead of remembering the terrible consequences of mass unemployment following WWI, many Germans insist that it was hyperinflation that led to Hitler, and so they tend to support central bank policies that guard against that problem rather than the far more worrisome specter of joblessness."
"As Stiglitz describes, the result of all this historical amnesia and economic blindness is a "Dickensian" nightmare that recalls 19th century debtor's prisons where people were punished for the inability to pay debts and locked (literally) into a situation in which paying them was, of course, impossible. Only now, the prisoner is an entire country."----Joseph Stiglitz: "Deep-seatedly wrong" economic thinking is killing Greece By Lynn Parramore (The Institute for New Economic Thinking)

Imran Khan regime is Violating Human Rights of older People..
by Qaiser Sharif

LAHORE, Dec. 5; Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has expressed deep grief over the death of 90 years old uncle of Pir Afzal Qadri, in jail, and termed it an inhuman action.

In a statement here, he said that the government had imprisoned scores of people demanding the defense of the Namoos e Risalat, and had put into jail the children and the aged relatives of the accused who were entitled to respect and care in every society.

He said that all over the world, senior citizens were given due respect but the attitude of the police in the Islamic Democratic Republic towards these sections was most condemnable.

He urged the rulers to deal with the aged people with respect and set them free at once.

The JI Secretary General, Liaqat Baloch, has also expressed deep grief over the demise of the 90 year person in jail.

Heavy Fighting in Hajin area: IS advancing in eastern Homs. Assad Shelling Islamic towns in 4 provinces.

December 9. In northern Hama province, Assad's artillery shelled areas near Lataminah city and 2 villages further from it. .

Assad's artillery also shelled Islamic positions in north west Aleppo and Latakia provinces. Shia forces also machine gunned two villages in Idlib
province. [All these are supposedly non-conflict zones guaranteed by the Russian-Turkish agreement.]

In response an Islamic group calling itself "Defenders of the Believers" fired on Assad's forces in Sahl al-Ghab area [northwest of Hama and Ma'an , northeast of Hama.

In the Afrin countryside, north central Syria, under the control of pro-Turkish Syrian factions, sneak attacks by YPG [Communist Kurds] have killed and injured several officers and their families.

December 7, 8, 9. US coalition has assembled a massive SDF [Kurdish Communist] force around the Islamic State enclave on the Euphrates river [the Hajin area and villages near by]. A massive bombing campaign by the US helped SDF to advance right up to Hajin. In intense fighting which followed during this weekend, SOHR is reporting 61 Islamic State fighters killed, including 6 human bombers who stopped SDF's armored column. SOHR reports at least 48 SDF troops killed in the fighting. SDF has now entered parts of Hajin but is stalled.

Latest: Another 500 SDF troops have arrived in the Hajin area while the US air force has launched heavy new bombing on Islamic State positions. Civilians are being killed and are fleeing the area.. Looks like the US is gathering forces big enough to overwhelm and wipe out IS from the Hajin area.

Meanwhile, December 5 to 9, Islamic State [IS] forces have been steadily advancing in the al-Sukhnah area of eastern Homs province. Assad has sent Iranian troops and Shia militias to stop the IS advances. "Violent" clashes are continuing in the area and by last reports IS is still advancing in a large area. j.

For the Honor of the Prophet, pbuh
Young Son of Maulana Rizvi Challenges Imran Khan Regime.
[This is a summary of the video which the regime has blocked.]

Maulana Khadim Hussain Rizvi's sons have posted two important messages on line.

In the first message, it was pointed out that Imran Khan's police did not knock on Rizvi's door. The police gave no legal notice, nor did it have a warrant of arrest. Instead Imran's gangster police smashed the door, broke into the home and trashed everything as they hustled out the Islamic leader.

[This elder son, Saad. has been arrested.]

In the second message, the fearless younger son debunks the government's claims against the maulana. He points out that the Islamic three day protest was very minor as compared to the months long camping style protests by Imran Khan's movement against the Nawaz Sharif government.

Maulana's fearless son noted the Imran regime's backers leaning towards Israel and then holding a conference to praise the Prophet, pbuh.

The young man pledged that he and all the supporters of the Maulana are ready to sacrifice their lives for the honor of the Prophet, pbuh. When the leaders give the signal, they will come out.

The regime's securirty forces entered, descrated and desecrated the mosque where Maulana Rizvi used to speak.

The young man's challenge seems to have had some impact. On December 7, the Imran regime released 212 people who had been protesting against the arrests. However 3000 people supporting tthe Maulana are still in prison after their arrests on November 24.

On December 7, Maulana's mosque was re-opened. A large crowd gathered and after prayers chanted slogans for a long time affirming that they were with the Prophet, pbuh, and against the blasphemers.
They remained non-violent and no damage was done.
