Hadith of the Week

Narrated by Abu Huraira, r.a.:

The Prophet said,
"Allah created the creations, and when He finished from His creations, Ar-Rahm i.e., womb said, "(O Allah) at this place I seek refuge with You from all those who sever me (i.e. sever the ties of Kith and kin). Allah said, 'Yes, won't you be pleased that I will keep good relations with the one who will keep good relations with you, and I will sever the relation with the one who will sever the relations with you.'
I said, 'Yes, O my Lord.' Allah said, 'Then that is for you '
" Allah's Apostle added. "Read (in the Qur'an) if you wish, the Statement of Allah: 'Would you then, if you were given the authority, do mischief in the land and sever your ties of kinship?' (47.22)

Gaza Strip: Israeli army injures 77 Palestinians

The Palestinian Health Ministry announced that 77 Palestinians were injured on Friday evening as a result of the Israeli army assault on the weekly marches in the eastern Gaza Strip, reports Anadolu Agency.

The ministry said in a statement that 31 of the wounded were hit by live bullets.

Since the Gaza rallies began in March last year, more than 320 protesters have been killed - and thousands more wounded - by Israeli troops deployed near the buffer zone.

Demonstrators demand an end to Israel's 12-year blockade of the Gaza Strip, which has shattered the coastal enclave's economy and deprived its two million inhabitants of many basic amenities.

Masjid Rahma, Baltimore County.

Jamaat al-Muslimeen
Reached out to Most Non-Political Masjid.

On October 25, a 4-page

Jamaat al-Muslimeen document was given to 103 Muslims after juma'. Almost all of them were well-to-do immigrants from India, Pakistan and various Arab countries with a few Africans.

This masjid is constantly collecting funds, thus draining the ummah of funds badly needed to help oppressed people and the most needy.

Their million-dollar parking lot was packed with late model shiny cars.

The building is fancy but the khutba was high school level.
Outside, a few poor Muslim women were begging for charity. They are not allowed to enter the masjid.

Somehow our Jamaat skirted the security and reached 103 people.

Here is an outline of the document distributed:

  1. Rise of Maulana Fazlur Rahman.

  2. Massive JI rally for Kashmir.

  3. Rebuttal of Yasir Qadhi's attack on IS.

By Abdulkabir Oyemomi

Many stories of kidnap have been wrongly and rightly attributed to Fulani herdsmen by the Nigeria Media in the recent past so as to tacitly indict Muslims and Islam. No Muslim group has ever condoned such dastardly acts if eventually found out that Muslims are responsible for same. The stories are always opposite if same happens to a Christian!

On the 11th of October,2019, some nine (9) children were rescued by the police in onitsha, a southern part of Nigeria (Anambra State).

The children were reliably reportedly kidnapped from Kano State, a core Northern Nigeria and stronghold of Islam and converted to Christianity against the knowledge of their parents.

When this news broke, it was the social media that made the deserved wide noise of the ugly revelations and the popular media houses were left with no choice than to lend their very feeble voice in reporting same. It later came to knowledge of all and sundry that many children have been found missing for a very long time in Kano and some other neighbouring towns .

The leadership of Christendom in Nigeria in their usual defenseless defense came out belatedly to claim that there is no such thing as as ' Kidnap for Christ' ,an open secret development in the South.

Parents have been warned to ensure that they are kept abreast of the movements of their children as most parents in this part of Nigeria are known for negligence concerning their children.

Question: According to Bukhari's sahih, Ayesha, r.a. was a child when the Prophet (pbuh) married her. This version is generally accepted by Muslims because it is in Buhkari. What is your understanding of her age?

Answer by Dr. Kaukab Siddique:
There is no Hadith about the age of Ayesha,r,a.
Lack of knowledge leads to defense of non-issues

In 1986 I wrote an article which showed that the narrative about the age of the wife of the Prophet, pbuh, Ayesha Siddiqa, r.a., which is published in Imam Bukhari's Sahih, is contradicted by many other narratives in books of hadith. It was the first article in English on the subject in America and was well liked by people who wanted to contradict the attacks of the Perwaizi sect and answer the abuse by neo-cons like General Boykin and Spencer.

Many people published my article, often with minor changes, but without noting that they had gotten it from me, thus contradicting the first rule of Hadith that you must give your source.

As I have continued my hadith studies, I have found that there is NO hadith from the Prophet, pbuh, giving the age of Ayesha, r.a., when he married her. Bukhari himself does not say that the narrative in his book about her age is from the Prophet, pbuh. His book has so much prestige that we took it or granted that whatever is in his book must be from the Prophet, pbuh. It is not and he does not say it is.

A hadith of the Prophet, pbuh, is about what he said, did or approved of or is about his qualities.. [1] None of these three aspects relate to the narrative about the age of Ayesha, r.a.

Even a hadith which is from the Prophet, pbuh, but is not narrated by a sahabi [Companion of the Prophet, pbuh] but is from a taba'i, [generation after the Sahaba], is called MURSAL and lacks authenticity and does not have HUJJAT [religious acceptability] in Islam.[2]. The only exceptions are Taba'i narrators who had met numerous sahaba. [3]

What is important about Ayesha, r.a. is that the Prophet, pbuh, loved her and died in her arms.[4] She was a scholar, teacher, faqih, leader, orator, fighter and pious beyond all requirements. The verses of the Qur'an which defend her and reveal Islamic laws owing to her actions, show that she was a person of great mental and spiritual maturity.

She opposed Ali, r.a., and Abu Huraira, r.a., in a number of matters, but not in totality, and this has led to sectarian propaganda being aimed at her.

The issue of her age is meant to trivialize her significance.

We fell into the trap.The Mother of the Believers needs no defense. May Allah forgive our sins and shortcomings.

KARACHI: The Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) kicked off Azadi March from Karachi on Sunday after a speech from Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Kashmir Black Day.

The caravan lead by the JUI-F chief proceeded to the Super Highway (M9) after smaller demonstrations from all over the city converged at Sohrab Goth where the political leaders spoke about Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir.

PPP's Raza Rabbani and Saeed Ghani welcomed the participants of the rally. Addressing the crowd, Rabbani said he was here on instructions of party chairman Bilawal Bhutto, and that the PPP workers and supporters will welcome the marchers.

Former Sindh governer and senior PML-N leader Muhammad Zubair also spoke on the occasion.

A large number of buses and other vehicles were hired to transport the participants of Azadi March. A senior JUI-F leader said that the number of buses had already crossed 400.

The participants of Azadi March from across the country will gather near Tarnol before entering Islamabad on October 31.

Govt-opposition deal on venue
The negotiations between the Rahbar Committee of the opposition parties and the government were successful on Saturday as the JUI-F agreed to hold protest demonstration at the end of Azadi March at Peshawar Morr in Islamabad.

"The Rahbar Committee of the opposition has agreed that the Azadi March will not enter the Red Zone and will hold its public meeting at the venue decided by the government," Defence Minister Pervaiz Khattak, who heads the government's negotiating team, said at a news conference after talks with the Rahbar Committee.

Moreover, Akram Durrani, convenor of Rahbar Committee, said the opposition parties would stage the Azadi March on roads instead of staging a sit-in at Red Zone in the federal capital.

"We would not stage a 126-day sit-in like that of the PTI. We would look into the situation and decide our future line of action. Our demands are the same including, securing the resignation of the prime minister, holding fair and free general elections and protection to the Islamic clauses in the Constitution," he said


Massive Rally for Kashmir in Gujrat
by QaiserSharif

Gujrat October 27: Jamaat-e-Islami chief Senator Sirajul Haq has said that the government would have not needed digging the trenches around Islamabad, had it fought the case of Kashmir with sincerity and courage.

"The rulers are facing the wrath of the people because they betrayed the people of Kashmir," said Emir Jamaat while addressing a "Kashmir Freedom March" in Gujrat on Sunday.

A large number of people holding placards and banned took part in rally and expressed solidarity with their Kashmir brethren. The participants included women and children.

JI Secretary General Ameerul Azim and JI Northern Punjab chapter Emir Dr Tariq Salim also addressed on occasion.

"The fight for Kashmir cause is actually a fight to protect the sovereignty of Pakistan," said Siraj, adding Kashmir was matter of life and death to the country.

He said more than a month was passed to the prime minister speech at the UNGA but the world had done nothing in support of the besieged people. Therefore, he added, the JI was saying it from the day first that it was only Pakistan which ultimately was to fight the Kashmir case. Hence, he said, only brave step was needed from the government because India's next target was Muzaffarabad if it was not stopped in Sri Nagar. The world, he added, never came in support of the weak.

He said the IHK was turned into a largest prison of the world with more than eight million of Kashmiris were spending a life of prisoners for 85 days.

"I want to tell the prime minister that speeches alone won't work on Kashmir rather people are demanding brave and decisive steps."

Siraj expressed regret and anger over the silence of the UNO and international community on Kashmir. He said Indian forces unleashed a worst violence on the people of the held area. Women were being kidnapped and law of jungle prevailed in the valley but the world was acting as silent spectator and no one was asking New Delhi to stop genocide of Kashmiris in occupied territory, he regretted.

Ameerul Azim thanked the people of Gujrat for participating in the rally, saying the every Pakistani was standing by the Kashmiris in this testing time. However, he added, only rulers were silent and showing no courage for Kashmir cause. He said it seemed that the government had already accepted the Indian hegemony in the region and lacked courage to act against the occupied forces.

He assured the Kashmiris that people of Pakistan will never leave them alone.

 Sayragul Sauytbay

A Muslim woman who escaped from a state "re-education" camp in China has said inmates were gang raped, subjected to torture and medical experiments and forced to eat pork.

Sayragul Sauytbay, a Chinese Muslim of Kazakh descent, said she was detained by the state in November 2017.

The 43-year-old teacher was escorted by armed men to a camp, where she was held for several months, according to Haaretz.

She was ordered to teach inmates Chinese. "It was forbidden to speak with the prisoners, forbidden to laugh, forbidden to cry and forbidden to answer questions from anyone," she said.

"There were almost 20 people in a room of 16 square meters. There were cameras in their rooms, too, and also in the corridor. Each room had a plastic bucket for a toilet. Every prisoner was given two minutes a day to use the toilet, and the bucket was emptied only once a day."

Ms Sautybay said women were systematically raped and that she was forced to watch a woman be repeatedly assaulted.

"The policemen ordered her to disrobe and simply raped her one after the other, in front of everyone," she told Haaretz.

"While they were raping her they checked to see how we were reacting. People who turned their head or closed their eyes, and those who looked angry or shocked, were taken away and we never saw them again.

"On an everyday basis the policemen took the pretty girls with them, and they didn't come back to the rooms all night."

Ms Satuybay said that as well as torture, prisoners were also subjected to mysterious human experiments.

"The inmates would be given pills or injections," she said. "[They] had different kinds of effects. Some prisoners were cognitively weakened. Women stopped getting their period and men became sterile."

The 43-year-old was instructed to teach the prisoners Communist Party propaganda songs and slogans. As a camp teacher she avoided the very worst of the alleged conditions. The inmates were forced to recite slogans such as: "I love China," "Thank you to the Communist Party," "I am Chinese" and "I love Xi Jinping".

Ms Sautybay also said that all inmates, including observant Muslim prisoners, were forced to eat pork.

"The food was bad, there weren't enough hours for sleep and the hygiene was atrocious,"

"The world must find a solution so that my people can live in peace," she said. "The democratic governments must do all they can to make China stop doing what it is doing in Xinjiang."

Beijing has denied the 43-year-old's allegations.

Single shooter: 2 die as at least 12 people shot near Texas college town of Commerce.

Two people died after at least 12 were shot at a party about midnight Saturday near Greenville as nearby Texas A&M University Commerce celebrated homecoming weekend.

Four other people were hurt, but Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks did not detail their injuries. He did say some people had been hurt by broken glass as they tried to escape through The Party Venue's windows.

Authorities said they were looking for a single gunman but had not identified a suspect and had not received a detailed description of the person from witnesses. Meeks said he did not believe the public was in any danger.

 Commerce TX

The first person the gunman shot may have been his intended target and the rest of the victims may have been randomly fired upon, the sheriff said.

"The amount of people that were there, the overcrowdedness of it — it gave the opportunity for this shooter to be able to accomplish whatever he wanted to be able to accomplish," Meeks said. "When you have this many people in one place, it's an easy target for somebody."

Hunt County deputies had been outside the party because of complaints about illegal parking. They were questioning a person outside the front of the venue who they believed was intoxicated when the shooting began about 20 minutes after they arrived. One off-duty Farmersville ISD police officer also had been at the venue working security at the party.

Deputies heard gunshots coming from the back of the building but could not tell at first whether the shots were fired from inside or outside, Hunt County Chief Deputy Buddy Oxford said.

Authorities found the two men who had been killed inside the building.

The gunman fled during the commotion, and witnesses had not given authorities a detailed description of him or any suspect vehicle.

"It appalls me that, as many folks that were there, [they] have not been able to give us a better description of the shooter," Meeks said. "We need to get him off the street as soon as possible, and we have very, very little to go on right now," he said.

Barisha's mysterious night: aerial bombardment and clashes on the ground and a landing by the U.S. Forces led to 9 casualties including a child, 2 women, and first-rank ISIS leader.

8 US Helicopters and a jet attacked a small Islamic State compound in northmost Irbid Province.

The fight back continued for 120 Minutes. Neither al-Baghdadi nor IS fighters were running. {Compare this account by a neutral body, Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, SOHR, with a track record of accurate reporting, with Trump's claims of military glory against a soft target.]

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights continues to keep up with the events that took place in Barisha area north of Idlib city on Saturday evening, where reliable sources told the Syrian Observatory that the "CIA and Autonomous Administration's intelligence in north and northeast Syria" had intelligence information about the presence of leaders of the first-ranks of the " Islamic State" Organization in Barisha area, among them is Abu al-Yaman, who is an "Emir of Security Forces in the Levant" and close to al-Baghdadi and appeared next to him in the latest Video version of al-Baghdadi, while sources added to the Syrian Observatory that the operation was delayed despite the presence of strong intelligence; due to the launch of "Peace Spring" operation east Euphrates.

Going back to details of what happened last night, the U.S. helicopters which came from inside the Turkish territory, carried out a landing in the area and clashed with those how were near the targeted house west of Barisha, and among the 9 casualties there are 2 women and a child, while the targeted house was purchased by a jihadi leader a few days ago and identified himself in front of people of the area that he is from Aleppo, also sources reported to the Syrian Observatory that the operation which took place at 09:30 GMT, participated in it Arab intelligence in addition to airstrikes by helicopters and the accompanying warplane.

The Syrian Observatory published this morning that the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored an attack carried out by a squadron of 8 helicopters escorted by an International Coalition warplane; on positions where the "Islamic State" Organization is located in Barisha area north of Idlib city just after midnight of yesterday, where the helicopters targeted the Organizations' positions by intense and violent strikes for about 120 minutes, accompanied by targeting by the Jihadis for the helicopters with heavy weapons, and the Syrian Observatory documented the death of 9 people in the attack of the Coalition helicopters, and it is not known yet whether Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi the leader of the "Islamic State" Organization was among the killed people, and the death toll is expected to rise because there are some people in critical situation, in addition to information about other casualties

*PROPHET* (sal Allahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said:
"Keep away from ill-thinking/suspicions because ill-thinking is the greatest falsehood." [ Source~ Sahih Bukhari]

Commentary: During the Abbasid period one of the scholars in Baghdad was greeted by an acquaintance who said...
"Do you know what I just heard about your friend...?"

The Scholar: "Hold on a minute, before telling me anything
I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test."
The Man: "Triple Filter Test ?"
The Scholar: "That's right, before you talk to me about my friend it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you're going to say.
That's why I call it the triple filter test. The first filter is Truth.
Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?
The Man: "No, actually I just heard about it and ..."

The Scholar: "All right, so you don't really know if it's true or not.
Now let's try the second filter... The filter of Goodness.
"Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good ? "
The Man: "No, on the contrary..."
The Scholar: "So, you want to tell me something bad about him, but you're not certain it's true. You may still pass the test though, because there's one filter left: The filter of Usefulness. "Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?"
The Man: "No, not really."
The Scholar: "Well, if what you want to tell me is neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all ?" Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) says...
"O you who believe, Avoid much suspicion, indeed some suspicions are sins. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh (meat) of his dead brother ?
You would hate it (so hate backbiting). And fear Allah. Verily, Allah is the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful."
