Why study Hadith?

Answer by Kaukab Siddique:

No hadith of the Prophet (pbuh) contradicts the Qur'an. If you have seen one like that, or you think it does, email it to me or photocopy it and mail it to me. The Qur'an provides principles and the framework for the Islamic way of life. The Hadith of the Prophet (pbuh) shows how the Qur'an is to be UNDERSTOOD and IMPLEMENTED. The Prophet (pbuh) also provided laws which are BINDING but which are NOT in the Qur'an, especially relating to the rights of women. For instance, the PUNISHMENT for RAPE is given in the Hadith ONLY, not in the Qur'an. Those who take the Qur'an ONLY have made the mistake of trying to apply the rule of 4 witnesses to rape. If that were accepted, most men would get away with rape [and that is happening in some cases, with the victim being punished instead.] The Prophet (pbuh) taught that the raped WOMAN's WORD must be accepted , after proper investigation; and after final proof, the rapist must be executed.

Hadith does not contradict the Qur'an. It simply supplements the Qur'an. That's why the Prophet (pbuh) was sent to the people FIRST and then they were given the Qur'an as the basis for guidance.

Institutional Racism

45 Years in Prison, death after one year of "freedom."
Nadrat Siddique

Former Black Panther Party/BLA member Robert Seth Hayes was released from prison in August 2018. He'd been held for 45-years for a crime he didn't commit. This was even though his prison sentence was 25-years, and he was a model inmate. On December 21, 2019, having experienced freedom for a little over a year, he passed away.

Although very healthy when he was captured, Seth struggled for years with untreated diabetes and Hepatitis C in prison, and evidently it caught up to him. (He was repeatedly denied medical treatment for both conditions by the prison administration).

Jamaat al-Muslimeen is deeply aggrieved by his passing away after such maltreatment. We offer condolences to his family, and condemn the U.S. for its longterm internment of BPP/BLA political prisoners like Seth on trumped up charges, as well as the government's refusal to acknowledge their political prisoner status.

We have received an authentic video.

[From Major Muhammad 'Aamir, retired]

Every military move by General Musharraf was ordered by the CIA.

The General committed blatant treachery against Pakistan.

The officer, on video gives details of the intelligence and military takeover of Pakistan by the Americans.

The officer is surprised that the current military establishment is praising Musharraf.

Islamic groups were attacked by Pak army on US orders. Forces were moved from the Indian border to Afghanistan border. The Taliban government was Pakistan's friend.

Musharraf helped the US destroy :Pakistan's ally.

Sack fulls of fake votes were printed and sent to help "elect" Karzai at US orders.

Our thanks go to reader T.



[Noted by the Intercept.]
It's been described as the worst human rights crisis in the world — the arbitrary detention in sprawling camps of a million or more Uighur Muslims in China's northwestern Xinjiang province. The Chinese government has claimed that the camps are merely vocational training centers, but in November a trove of leaked documents, dubbed the China Cables, confirmed what the world had long suspected: the camps are Communist Party re-education centers in which Uighurs are forced to abandon their traditional religion and language


11 Children Among Israel's latest Victims.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR): Thirty-nine Palestinian civilians, including 11 children and a woman, were shot and injured by Israeli occupation forces' (IOF) fire against peaceful protestors at the 86th Great March of Return (GMR) in eastern Gaza Strip, this Friday, 27 December 2019.

Despite of general calmness of protests in most of the areas and the decrease in numbers of participants due to the cold and rainy weather, IOF continued the use of excessive force against peaceful protestors, as 5 civilians, from eastern Rafah, were shot with live bullets; one of them was deemed in serious condition.

Moreover, IOF targeted protests with rubber bullets and tear gas canisters, mainly targeting their upper bodies and heads. As a result, many civilians were injured, including a young man who was shot with a rubber bullet in his right eye.

The Supreme National Authority of GMR called for today's protests under the slogan "Martyrs' Blood Draws the Freedom Path" on the anniversary of the 2018 Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip, which continued for 23 days, and resulted in hundreds of killings and injuries.
At approximately 14:00, Palestinian civilians head towards the five GMR encampments in the eastern Gaza Strip to join today's protest which lasted to 17:00, in the last Friday of this year.

The National Authority announced the suspension of the demonstrations until the next Earth Day, which is celebrated on 30 March of each year, which would mark the second anniversary of the GMR. The National Authority also declared that protests would thereafter take place on a monthly basis and on national events.

Since GMR started on 30 March 2018, PCHR documented that 215 civilians were killed by IOF, including 47 children, 2 women, 9 persons with disabilities, 4 paramedics and 2 journalists.

Additionally, IOF shot and injured 14,854 civilians, including 3,746 children, 392 women, 255 paramedics and 219 journalists, noting that many sustained multiple injuries on separate occasions.

The following is a summary of today's events along the Gaza Strip border:

Northern Gaza Strip: demonstrations took off in eastern Jabalia, and some protestors attempted to throw stones at IOF stationed along the border fence. IOF shot and injured 3 civilians, including a child, with live bullets.
Gaza City: hundreds of civilians took part in protests at Malaka area in eastern Gaza City. No casualties were reported.

Central Gaza Strip: dozens of young men headed to eastern al-Buraij refugee camp and gathered adjacent to the border fence at a range varying between 0 - 300 meters.

The protestors threw stones and sound bombs at IOF, who responded with live and rubber bullets and tear gas canisters and pumped wastewater at the protestors.

As a result, 2 civilians sustained rubber bullet wounds, including Sa'ed Ahmed Tawfiq Mahani (29), from Gaza City who was shot with a rubber bullet in his right eye. Mahani was transferred to Eye Specialty Hospital in Gaza City. Moreover, a number of civilians suffocated due to tear gas inhalation.

Khan Younis: Hundreds of civilians joined today's protests in Khuza'ah area in eastern Khan Younis. Dozens gathered near the border fence and attempted to throw stones and Molotov cocktails. IOF fired rubber bullets and tear gas canisters at them. As a result, 14 civilians, including 7 children, were shot with rubber bullets and tear gas canisters while dozens suffocated due to tear gas inhalation.

Rafah: hundreds of protestors gathered in eastern al-Shawka neighborhood while others remained at the protest encampment where speeches and theatrical performances were held.

Dozens attempted to approach the fence and set tires on fire and threw stones. IOF fired live and rubber bullets and tear gas canisters at protestors.

As a result, 20 civilians, including 3 children and a woman, were injured: 5 were shot with live bullets; one of them was deemed in serious condition, 12 were shot with rubber bullets, and 3 were hit with tear gas canisters.

The wounded woman identified as Huda Nayef Edwan (42) was shot with a live bullet in the head. Ahmed Ahmed Mesbah al-Hams (19) was deemed in serious condition after being shot with a live bullet in the lower extremities.

Anti Muslim Groups Ganging Up

by Kabir Oyemomi

The United States (US) has accused the Nigerian government of restraining religious freedom. On its own part, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has also supported this allegation. CAN claimed that Christians were becoming endangered species in their fatherland. The umbrella Christian organization also claimed lopsidedness in appointments under the Buhari administration.

However, a press statement issued by the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has debunked the above allegations. The human rights organization faulted US democratic status and described its role in global matters as the height of double standard. The group also accused CAN of shedding crocodile tears. MURIC's statement was signed by its director, Professor Ishaq Akintola.

According to MURIC, "We see the mention of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) by the US as a smokescreen. IMN is not being denied freedom of worship. It is the excesses of the group that is being curtailed. Nobody stops them from worshipping but the government has a duty to protect the rest of Nigerians from actions of the group which undermine Allah-given fundamental rights of other citizens.

"We are not bothered by the US latest ranking of Nigeria as religiously biased. Has the US ever seen anything good about our country? Some foreign powers are always eager to discredit developing nations. It is a game mastered by imperialists. We can see the signs. Instead of breaking up in 2015 as predicted, Nigeria is waxing strong. The war against corruption is on course. Infrastructure is growing at a fast rate. Therefore, a spanner must be thrown at the works to justify forceful intervention and a grip on Nigerian oil.

"America should do some introspection. Those who claim to be the champion of democracy in the world cannot, in good conscience, beat their chests and say, 'We have been fair to all'. America complains to Nigeria that Christians are being killed even when it is well known that Muslims are the greatest victims of the killings. America invited former CAN president to address Congress a few years ago. But no Muslim leader has ever been invited to the same platform. Yet America has been using the lies told before Congress to judge our country. Is this fair?

"Muslims of Southern Nigeria have been complaining of persecution for decades but America turned its deaf ears. America pretends nothing is happening to Nigerian Muslims even when the Muslim girl child is locked out of school over an ordinary head scarf which is even allowed in US schools.

"US human rights record outside Nigeria is even nothing to write home about particularly regarding its attitude to issues affecting Muslim nations and Muslims in general. Sanctions are used selectively against Muslim nations in order to weaken them militarily and economically. Israel is free to kill and maim Palestinian children while America uses vetoes to frustrate resolutions of the United Nations aganinst Israel. In fact, democracy is a sham if assessed against the backdrop of happenings in the UN where America alone can stop any decision made by the rest of the world. The US invaded Iraq without approval from the UN. So what moral right has America to judge other nations?

"If America is truly the world's champion of democracy and the chief promoter of human rights, why is that country always silent each time Muslims are at the receiving end? More than 8,000 Muslims were massacred in the Bosnia genocide, particularly in Srebrenica and Zepa in 1995. What did America say? What did America do when Muslims were being killed in their hundreds in Myammar? Even right now hundreds of thousands of Uyghur Muslims are being detained in Western Xinjiang, China, but America cannot be bothered. Since last week, Muslim demonstrators are being killed over anti-Muslim Indian citizenry laws but the White House is only interested in bullying Nigeria.

"Our message to CAN is this, allow America to set fire to your country and we can assure you that it is not the Muslims alone who will face turmoil. Our people say that when a hen perches on a rope, neither the hen nor the rope will enjoy stability. Whether to avoid foreign interference in your country and live in peace with your Muslim neighbours while you watch your children and grandchildren play peacefully in the garden or to open the doors wide for an army of occupation which will bring general pandemonium, the choice is yours.

"CAN should remember that religion or no religion, America's national interest is America's priority. America has no permanent friends. Neither should anyone blame Americans for loving their own country. The blame goes to those who open the doors of their country for foreign forces to support them in eliminating or, at least, in undermining their perceived rivals or oppressors.

"CAN has only manifested its naivety in modern international politics. The US has thrown religious persecution as a bait. Unfortunately CAN has swallowed it, hook, line and sinker. It is not the first time that America will fly a kite. What was America's excuse for invading Iraq? Was it not weapons of mass destruction (WMD)? Was any WMD found at the end of the day? Did America apologise? Iraq's infrastructure paid for it. It was completely demolished. But above all, Iraq's oil paid for it and that was the real target ab initio.

"The same America is now talking of religious bias in order to create tension. If nothing like religious bias is found after Nigerians have killed themselves in their thousands, America will never apologise and we will be the suckers for it. CAN is free to bring in America. Afterall, if the heavens will fall, we are all under it. But history will remember our warning to CAN.

"CAN is simply playing to type. This is a group that does the hurting, yet it is always the first to scream. CAN aptly personifies the parable of the mischievous housewife who beats up the husband but screams for help. The only time neighbours bothered to check, they found the husband trembling in a corner, with the wife beating him with a huge stick.

"How can CAN start complaining now? All the Chiefs of Army Staff under Obasanjo were Christians from 1999 to 2007 (Victor Malu, Alexander Ogumudia, Martin Luther Agwai, Andrew Azazi and Paul Dike). Four out of the five chiefs of defence staff were also Christians while all the chiefs of naval staff were Christians and the Muslims did not complain. CAN did not talk at the time. How come CAN suddenly found its voice?

"Under President Goodluck Jonathan, Christians took all the sensitive security positions. The Chief of Defence Staff, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, Chief of Naval Staff were all Christians until January 2014 when a Muslim took over as Chief of Naval Staff. Not only that, the Director Generals of the State Security Services and the Nigerian Intelligence Agency were Christians. The Secretary to the Federal Government was a Christian. The Senate president and his deputy were both Christians under Jonathan but CAN had the temerity to demand that a Christian must head Senate under Buhari.

"CAN accuses President Muhammadu Buhari of appointing Muslims only whereas President Buhari shares the four sensitive military leadership positions among Christians and Muslims. We must expose CAN for deceiving the global community and for inciting its followers in the country. Check the records. These are verifiable facts. The Chief of Defence Staff is General Gabriel Abayomi Olonisakin and he has been appointed since 13th July, 2015. He is still in that position. Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe is the Chief of Naval Staff. He was appointed by the same Buhari since 13th July, 2015. Only the Chief of Army Staff and the Chief of Air Staff are Muslims. That is 50 - 50. CAN is definitely lying. But the wind has blown. We have seen the ruff of the hen.

"You will know the truth and the truth will set you free (John 8:32).We appeal to discerning Christians not to allow CAN to set them against their own brothers. CAN is fully back as an unrepentant advocatus diaboli after a short interregnum. Only the truth can set you free.
"We charge compatriots to verify claims being made by either the US or CAN. We invite all Nigerians to manifest the well known African hospitality to every American or Western citizen as those individuals do not represent their countries' tortuous diplomacy. We call on Muslims to continue to exhibit love and care for their Christian compatriots. We warn against CAN's connivance with Western powers. It can only be a gang-up in iniquity."

Bogus/shocking "Christianity" and "Islam" in England and Scotland.
Why is Ibn Tymiyyah so Important for the Resurgence of Islam.

by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

The latest news from England is that an unmarried couple is now living in 10 Downing street. This is not an ordinary couple but Boris Johnson and his girl friend Carrie Symonds. No one can stop this mortal sin from happening, In fact Johnson, the new Prime Minister of UK cheated five times on his wife. She tolerated him but now has filed for divorce but its taking a long time.

Britain is called a mongrel nation by some scholars. However Christianity is quite helpless.

British "Islam" is not far behind. Sajid Javid is the Chancellor of UK. He is trusted with the treasury. How can a Muslim be so trusted by the British? The answer is simple. His intro says he does not practice Islam [but his wife Laura King practices Christianity and goes to church.

Sajid Javid and Laura King went for their honeymoon to Israel.. So we have a "Zionist" "Muslim."

Javid has shaved his head because his wife told him to do so.

Even more important is the popular mayor of London, Sadiq Khan. He openly supports lgbtq.

When London transportation hub was attacked in July 7 2007, Khan not only condemned the assailants, as could be expected, but went all out to condemn all those who are fighting against Britain. This enthusiasm by Khan helped England to condemn all fighters as "extremists."

Such "Christians" and "Muslims" are mushrooming all over Britain. A clear separation has occurred between religion and social activity. Johnson's girl friend is popular because she is against the use of plastics and supports environmental issues.

Sadiq Khan supports immigrants and people in poor housing.

Britain struck at the roots of the Muslim world by inserting "Israel" into the Middle East and separating Kashmir from Pakistan.

British troops invaded Afghanistan with NATO and Iraq with the USA and bombed the Islamic State for several years.

Anti war rallies do occur in Britain when the cost of war goes up, not because invasion and occupation and Israel are violations of God's law.

In that context, the interpretation of the Qur'an and Hadith by Imam Ibn Taymiyya is key to the resurgence of Islam.
The Mongols had embraced Islam in the cultural sense. It was an effective tactic to say to the Muslim countries the Mongo;s invaded, we are Muslims too. Muslims should not fight Muslims!

The Mongols thought the invasion of Palestine would be easy because the Muslims would be divided.

Ibn Taymiyya taught that jihad becomes required for every Muslim when a Muslim country is invaded. Those who do not rule by Sharia are only nominally Muslims.

He taught that Islam is based on which side are you on. If you are siding with the unbelievers, you are opponents of Islam though you may claim to be Muslims.

His unifying teachings mobilized the Muslims and the Islamic army delivered a stunning defeat to the Mongols at Marj as Saffar in 1303.

Now in our own times, crusaders from the West are gathering traditional Muslims in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Kashmir, India, Somalia, Nigeria, China to fight those striving for Qur'an and Hadith. Western and Israeli media are constantly claiming that Muslims are fighting Muslims.

Internal reforms:

Ibn Taymiyya wrote against Sufiism although he accepted some aspects of Sufi teachings.

He also issued devastating critique of Shiaism.

He supported the rights of women. He opposed the easy talaqs indulged in by Muslim men. Interpreters of Islam were ignoring the teachings of the Qur'an about THREE divorces spread out over about three months. They were claiming that three divorces can be given at one time.

Ibn Taymiyya opposed the simultaneous three talaqs.

He had to suffer prison time because scholars who opposed his teachings persuaded the rulers that he was a deviant.

However Islamic rulers at that time were honest enough to listen to both sides. Owing to his vast knowledge, Ibn Taymiyya

won every debate and was released each time.

The masses loved him and at his funeral more people came than at any other funeral in the history of Islam [other than at the funeral of ibn Hanbal].



Imran Khan Regime Failure in All aspects within 15 Months after boasting of a "New Pakistan."
Parliament Met for only Ten Minutes.
JI Demands Rights of Laborers.

LAHORE- Dec 27: Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Senator Sirajul Haq has said that the parliament is almost non-functional and the prime minister makes decisions even without consulting his cabinet.

Addressing the opening session of the JI Shoora at Mansoora on Friday, he said the bad governance and ill-planned economic policies even turned the supporters of the PTI desperate and hopeless.

Three-day JI Shoora meeting will conclude on Sunday and it will discuss at length the political situation, Kashmir and organizational matters.

"The Senate has not met for four months while the National Assembly session occasionally held only for 10 minutes which is a joke with those people who sent their representatives to the parliament," said Sirajul Haq, adding the prime minister's claim to end corruption and start a ruthless across the board accountability were also proved a pack of lies. He said the prime minister had made repeated references to the powerful justice system and across the board accountability in the developed nations but he himself included the people with tainted images in the his party ranks and government team. He said the ruling party deceived the masses with the slogan of "Naya Pakistan". He said the bubble of tall claims made by the ruling party was burst in only 15 months and now people were asking the government to at least return them the "Old Pakistan" if it was unable to bring any reform in any sector. He said poor and rich were paying the same taxes, unemployment and inflation went to new heights while law and order situation was turned into worst under the present government regime.

The JI chief expressed concern over the deplorable situation of the Muslim world, holding the rulers responsible for it. He said Kashmir was burning and Modi government bent upon vanishing the Muslims of the occupied region. He said millions of Muslims of India were become the fresh target of the Hidutva regime but the rulers of the Islamic world and international community were posing as silent spectators.

The JI Shoora first session unanimously passed a resolution demanding the government ensure minimum wage to laborers. It stated the working class in the country was under severe pressure due to skyrocketing inflation and their jobs were at risk. He said the government must ensure enforcement of local and international labor laws in informal and formal sectors to secure the future of millions of people.

India Under Modi Baring its Hidden Racism.
Protests Continued for a Week but are being Crushed.
Info from Indian Muslim Americans.


Indian Parliament passed Citizens Amendment Bill recently that is benign, but it is a path to establish Muslims as second-class citizens of India. Beyond Muslims, millions of poor & illiterate, irrespective of their religion will face statelessness, detention centers and trauma as a related action, National Register of Citizens, is taken. They will be asked to prove their birth with documents that are hard to obtain. It is already happening in one Indian state where thousands of innocent families have been separated and detained. This trajectory defies logic, is diabolical and against humanity.

UN Human Rights council has called this "fundamentally discriminatory in nature".

It is heartening see protests swelling across India - Young students, people from all religions and walks of life are standing up for Muslims and to defend the constitution.
The police have gone unimaginably brutal - barging into universities and beating students, firing live rounds, throwing stun grenades and destroying property deliberately. In one state, the government has begun confiscating properties at the slightest pretext. Lives & livelihoods are getting destroyed.

Thousands are detained, jailed and some have vanished in the government machinery. This is going on right now. It is important to save the innocent from jails and detentions.

It is important to support the fight for human rights and to preserve the Indian Constitution.

A seemingly nice Conference in which no Issue is Touched.
Maulana Maudoodi's son made questionable statements.
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]

New York City - On Sunday, December 15th, I attended the 37th Annual Seerah Conference, from 10 am to 5 pm.

This conference was located at Harlem's Masjid Malcolm Shabazz and had speakers coming from Wisconsin, Florida, Missouri, North Carolina, and Virginia, The goal of the Conference was to speak on the life of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

This mosque follows the teachings of Imam Warith Deen Muhammad and is run by Imam Ezak-El M. Pasha.

All of the speakers were given 15-20 minutes to speak. The spoke on a wide variety of topics such as his leadership among the ummah and how he spread dawah.

North Carolina Congressman Nasif Majeed encouraged the ummah to join politics.

He says that you have to be at the table to get a slice of the pie and that if you aren't the table then, you're on the menu.

No, Bro. Majeed did not speak about Islamic politics or a khalifat and if any of the speakers did I would have been surprised.

An interesting point Congressman Majeed did make was on how immigrant Muslims (and even some Christian ministers)

have told him that American politics is haram. He said, however, that these same Muslim cab drivers appealed to him for help in dealing with oppressive policies being used against them, in particular.

The more well-known speaker was Dr. Syed Farooq, who is the son of Jamaat-e-Islami founder Maulana Maudoodi. Dr. Farooq has known the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Imam Warith D. Muhammad for many years. Dr. Farooq relayed a story of how when he was a young man coming to America his father instructed him to give the greeting to the Hon. Elijah Muhammad once he got there.

Dr. Farooq's discussion focused on the following points:

  1. The history of Prophethood and how Allah's mercy led to the choosing of messengers to remind people of Allah's message or if it got distorted.

  2. Dr. Farooq further detailed how proof of the messengers existed because many non-Muslim tribes and cultures all over the world today have similar moral codes found in Scripture.

  3. The hardships Prophet Muhammad and his followers endured while in Meccan concentration camps and he dispelled the lie that Islam was spread by the sword.

  4. The Isra and Miraj, which was the journey Prophet Muhammad took to Jerusalem and led all of the Prophets in Salat.

  5. Dr. Farooq ended his mini-lecture with the message that in following the Holy Qur'an there are no disputes or problems that cannot be solved among the Muslims.

Imam Yahya Abdullah was the last speaker and the most energetic. He referred to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as a Renaissance Man noting that he freed slaves long before Harriet Tubman did. Imam Yahya disputed the claim that Prophet Muhammad was illiterate saying that, according to Imam W.D. Muhammad, Prophet Muhammad lacked knowledge of Scripture or organized religion but was an educated businessman.

Imam Yahya and Dr. Syed Farooq were the two speakers who spoke at length about Prophet Muhammad but, all of the speakers gave inspirational messages on either the how learning about the Prophet (pbuh) improved their lives and the need to spread dawah.

[Editorial note: Maudoodi was extremely critical of Qadianis ["ahmeddis"] He could not possibly have greeted a supporter of Qadianis ["ahmeddis".] . Also Maudoodi wrote a major book on Jihad. His son made a claim about peaceful means which is untenable.]
