Hadith of the Week

Narated By Zaid bin Khalid Al-Juhani, r.a.:

A bedouin went to the Prophet and asked him about picking up a lost thing. The Prophet said, "Make public announcement about it for one year. Remember the description of its container and the string with which it is tied; and if somebody comes and claims it and describes it correctly, (give it to him); otherwise, utilize it." He said, "O Allah's Apostle! What about a lost sheep?" The Prophet said, "It is for you, for your brother (i.e. its owner), or for the wolf." He further asked, "What about a lost camel?" On that the face of the Prophet became red (with anger) and said, "You have nothing to do with it, as it has its feet, its water reserve and can reach places of water and drink, and eat trees."

Israeli Forces Shoot, Injure Palestinian Child in East Jerusalem

A Palestinian minor was shot and injured by Israeli soldiers in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of al-Issawiya, according to local witnesses.

The child, who has been identified as Malek Issa, was returning home from school when he was shot in the head with a rubber-coated steel bullet.

 Malek Issa

Malek was transferred to the Hadassah Medical Center for treatment.

His medical condition remains unknown until the moment.

Over the last few months, Israeli police forces have been raiding the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya on a daily basis, ransacking homes and arresting and assaulting Palestinians.

The Israeli campaign against Issawiya is aimed at oppressing and making life miserable for all who live there as part of efforts to push the native residents out of the holy city.

 Delhi Results


Delhi Results as Much Modi's Defeat as of Kejriwal's Victory
[With thanks to Prof. Javed Jamil.]

Delhi is not just another state or city. It is the heart of the country. Let us hope that Modiji will hear the heartbeats and instead of multiplying his arrogance will signal to the country that he has learnt by his mistakes.

The Delhi Assembly poll results are not just Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's victory but are in equal measure PM Narendra Modi's defeat. This was not a usual state election. The polls were held at a time when the country faced a huge crisis in terms of its secular and democratic credentials. People stormed the streets in protest mode. The mood of the public was totally overwhelmed by the emotions related to the Citizenship Amendment Act.

Notably, the CAA followed the Triple Talaq legislation and the abrogation of Article 370 as also the Supreme Court verdict in favour of the Ramjanam Bhoomi movement by pro-Hindutva forces. The passing of CAA by Parliament at the behest of the BJP government confirmed the worst fears in the minds of not only Muslims but also the other secular-minded people that the Modi government is bent upon advancing its Hindutva agenda in a no-holds-barred manner.

The rise of the Indian people against the CAA with protests in universities and participation of all the communities across the country unnerved the Hindutva lobby. The BJP found in Delhi elections an opportunity to prove that the nation was behind the saffron party. The party leadership threw all its power in the elections, with all their MPs and state chief ministers taking the campaign scene by a storm. Through their fiery slogans, statements full of hatred and open call for revolt against one particular community, they hoped that all the non-Muslims of Delhi — forming more than 80 per cent of the population — will throng the polling stations in the party's favour.

Significantly, even the prime minister and the home minister did not miss any opportunity to demonise Muslims through the imagery of Shaheen Bagh. Just a few months back, they had won the Lok Sabha elections from Delhi too with massive margins. They thought that they would be the natural choice of the people even in the assembly polls. They were mistaken. Rather, Secularism triumphed. The people of Delhi declared emphatically that they are with those who rejected Modi's divisive agenda. Hatred can win in one or two elections but soon the people will realise that hatred leads to nothing but chaos. Ultimately, all will suffer.

During the last two years, the BJP has lost almost all the state assembly elections. If they are in power in Haryana and Karnataka, it is through manipulations rather than by winning more votes. They have lost big states like Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Punjab. But every time they lost, they and their media tried to pin the blame on local leaders in ways as to save Modi. The truth is, with the kind of big propaganda, divisive politics and the big campaign by Modi in all state elections, local issues have had only a partial effect.


The results in these states, and now in Delhi, showed that the people have lost faith in Modi. If Modi could win the Lok Sabha elections, it was not due to his performance in the previous five years but due to the emotional schizophrenia created through the Pulwama attack. If Pulwama was not there, Modi would not have returned to power at all. In that case, either he would not have embarked upon the Hindutva agenda so quickly, or if he did, his government would have fallen by now.


If Muslims have voted for Kejriwal in Delhi this time, it is not because they love him. They have noted that Kejriwal did not choose to openly confront Modi on the discriminatory CAA. He supported him on Article 370 vis-à-vis Jammu and Kashmir. If Muslims voted for Kejriwal, it was not because they thought of him as a friend but because they considered him an enemy of Muslims' enemy. Now, Kejriwal has to prove that he is an enemy of the BJP not just for the sake of winning elections but because he abhors their divisive, communal agenda.


Delhi is not just another state or city. It is the heart of the country. Let us hope that PM Modi will hear the heartbeats, and instead of becoming more arrogant, will signal to the country that he has learnt by his mistakes. The first proof of this will be either revoking CAA altogether or including Muslims too in its sweep. If he fails now, the country will have a tough time ahead. One thing is sure. Ultimately, the nation and its secular credentials will bounce back and prevail.

Why is Shiaism the main force against the Global Unity of Islam?
Facts of history indicate serious fabrications in the Foundations of Shiism.

by Kaukab Siddique

The 10th of Mohurram is the anniversary of the martyrdom of Hussain, r.a., the grandson of the Prophet, pbuh.

It was a great tragedy in that Hussain, r.a., with his family and about a hundred followers was surrounded by a large force sent by the war lord of Kufa known as Ibn Ziyad. When Hussain, r.a., refused to surrender, he and his followers were cut down by brute force and killed. He died fighting, sword in had, till the end. All the male members of his family, said to number 72, were also killed, with the exception of a male child.

This horrific tragedy should have united the entire Muslim against tyranny and kingship. Instead it has divided the Muslims and has lead to escalating violence between the Muslims. The Shias, who give precedence to Ali, r.a., the father of Hussain, r.a., over all the companions of the Prophet, pbuh, have made mourning for Hussain, r.a., an annual ritual especially in the first ten days of Mohurram The Shias take out processions and carry out self-flagellation and chanting against the murderers of Hussain, r.a.

In the process of annual mourning, the Shias have come to accuse the entire Muslim community as accessary to the murder of Hussain, r.a., The stories they tell about the tragic death of Hussain at Kerbala, now in Iraq, are totally out of context and can only be accepted if one refuses to accept historical facts adumbrated by all the early scholars and researchers of Islam.

So let us look at the facts.

Many of the Shia claim that Hussain, r.a., was killed by Yazeed, the Caliph at that time, because he was a tyrant and Hussain, r.a., refused to accept him as Caliph. Cursing Yazeed is the center piece of Shia ritual.

However, there is absolutely no evidence that Yazeed killed Hussain. In fact he was hundreds of miles away from Karbala when the tragic events happened.

There are some "milder" shias who admit that Yazeed did not kill Hussain, r.a., but they contend that Yazeed ordered Hussain to be killed. Again there is no evidence that Yazeed ORDERED Hussain, r.a., to be killed. There is no person from that time who makes such a claim, nor is there any document which shows such an order.

The surviving male child of the Karbala tragedy, known as Zayn al-Abedin, was saved, protected and provided all facilities by Yazeed till he grew up and became the imam of the Shias.

The question arises: Why do Shias accuse Yazeed when there is no such evidence in Shia or Sunni sources.

The motive of the Shias becomes evident when we realize that Yazeed was the son of Muawiyya, r.a., one of the Companions of the Prophet, pbuh. So the Shias who accuse Yazeed then go on to accuse his father Muawiyya who was instrumental in getting Yazeed elected as Caliph.

Muawiyya, r.a., during his extensive caliphate was very affectionate towards both the sons of Ali, r.a., Hasan, r.a., and Hussain, r.a., both of whom accepted the Caliphate of Muawiyya and from whom they received large gifts and stpends every year.

So, why attack Muawiyya who was dead when the tragedy of Karbala took place and who during his Caliphate treated both Hasan and Hussain with generosity and affection?

Again the motive seems to be attack Umar, r.a., the second Caliph of Islam, who appointed Muawiyya as the governor of Syria. Umar, r.a., was very close to the Prophet, pbuh, and is known as the greatest ruler the Muslim world has ever known for his sense of justice and honesty. The Prophet, pbuh, praised him more than he praised any of his other Companions and even said that: "If there were to be a prophet after me, it would be Umar."

But for the Shias, the main problem is that Muawiyya was appointed governor of Syria by Umar, r.a., and he gained popular support in Syria.

The attacks on Umar, r.a., reach the level of obscenity and pornography.

To go further into digging the roots of Islam, the Shias then attack Abu Bakr, r.a., the first Caliph and the greatest friend [Khalil, the Prophet called him] of the Prophet, pbuh. Abu Bakr, r.a., was supported by Umar, r.a., to be the first Caliph, a position which Shias claim belonged to Ali, r.a.

Some of the most virulent Shia attacks are aimed at Ayesha, r.a., the Mother of the Believers, the beloved wife of the Prophet, pbuh. Here the motivation is much simpler. Ayesha, r.a., did not accept the Caliphate of Ali, r.a.
Shia Version of "Islam."

Shias have had a hard time constructing their own version of Islam. In the process they have alienated the entire Muslim world.

Here are some of the Shia fabrications which are not in the Qur'an or the authentic teachings of the Prophet, pbuh, or the comments the Companions of the Prophet, pbuh.

  1. Shias claim that the Prophet, pbuh, had only ONE daughter and that was Fatima, r.a., who was married to Ali, r.a. The Qur'an, however, refers to the Prophet's, pbuh, DAUGHTERS [plural]. The hadith specifically mentions the names of the other daughters and that they were the daughters of the Prophet, pbuh, and Khadija, r.a., the mother of Fatima, r.a.

  2. A serious problem for Shias is that the Prophet, pbuh, brought about the marriage of TWO of his daughters, one after the other, to Usman, r,.a., who was from the Ummayad tribe. They hate him because Yazeed was also an Ummayad. The Prophet's pbuh, only other daughter was also married to an Ummayad who turned out to be a great fighter for Islam. This tribal hatred is essential to Shiaism and diametrically opposed to Islamic teachings.

  3. They ignore the martyrdom of Usman, r.a., who in the hierarchy of original Islam was a much greater Muslim supporter of the Prophet, pbuh, than Hussain, r.a., who was only a little child during the lifetime of the Prophet, pbuh. Usman, r.a., was killed in a most brutal fashion. He sat in peace reading the Qur'an he had compiled. He did not want any blood to be shed on his behalf.

  4. The gang which led the murderous attack on Usman, r,a., included the adopted son of Ali, r.a., and secondly the commander of Ali's r.a.., forces. Ali, r.a., had sent his sons to defend Usman, r.a., but exactly at the time when Usman, r.a., was attacked and murdered, Ali, r.a., and his sons were nowhere to be found. He was much under suspicion but vehemently denied a role in the murder.

  5. Shias claim that their 12 imams were appointed by Allah, just like the prophets, which is an exact denial of the Qur'an which says that Muhammad, pbuh, is the seal of the prophets, and the hadith which says there won't be any prophets or messengers after Muhammad, pbuh.

  6. Shias are vehement that their 12th "imam" who disappeared when he was a child, about 1000 years back, will re-appear at the end of time and fill the world with justice. Neither the Qur'an nor the entire corpus of hadith give the slightest hint of a hidden imam. [Sunni traditions do refer to a leader, guided one, Mahdi, but these are not supported by the Qur'an and scholars have pointed out that these narrations are fabricated or so weak in their chain of narration as to be useless. See ibn Khaldun's Muqadimmah].

  7. Much effort has been put into enhancing the personality of Ali, r.a., as one greater than ALL the sahaba [Companions of the Prophet, pbuh.] . Unfortunately for the Shias, the Qur'an does not mdention Ali, r.a., and NO hadith says that he was greater than all the sahaba.

  8. Ali, r.a., was a pious Muslim and did not claim to be greater than the first three Caliphs. Nor did his wife and sons claim to be greater than the wives and sons of other sahaba.

  9. Muslims have only two Eid celebrations in a year, based on authentic hadith and supported by all the sahaba and the generations after them. Shias have concocted a third "Eid" which they call Eid of Ghadeer Khum in which they claim that the Prophet, pbuh, appointed Ali, r.a. to be the caliph . Again, there is no such appointment mentioned in hadith although at a place called Ghadeer Khum, the Prophet, pbuh, made between Ali, r.a., and other Muslims who had brought serious charges against Ali, r.a.

  10. Shias try to hide the fact that Ali, r.a., was not very Islamic in his behavior towards women, including his wife, Fatima., the Prophet's daughter who complained about Ali, r.a., to the Prophet, pbuh, and the Prophet, pbuh, REPRIMANDED Ali, r.a., in public, from the mimbar of the mosque and repeated the reprimand THREE times. [Sahih Bukhari]. The same attitude appears when the Prophet's, wife was being slandered by the enemies of Islam and Ali, r.a., advised the Prophet, pbuh, that there is no lack of women. {This at a time when the Prophet, pbuh, was hurting very badly owing to the dirty propaganda of the enemies.]

  11. Hussain, r.a., was a very brave man. He fought to the last and was a true martyr at Karbala. Strangely enough the Shias do not mention ABDULLAH, r.a., ibn Zubair., r.a, who actually DEFEATED Yazeed and set up the Caliphate. The next Ummayad king's army killed Abdullah, r.a. He too fought gto the end like Hussain, against great odds. Is it because Abdullah, r.a., was the adopted son of Ayesha, r.a.?

All this information is easily available in early Islamic history. If any reader doubts it, let me know and I can provide the text, inshaAllah



Baluchistan Lacks Basic Facilities in Many Areas
by Qaiser Sharif

LAHORE- FEB 15: Prime Minister Imran Khan's statement that Army is standing behind him is tantamount to dragging the national institution in politics, says Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Senator Sirajul Haq.

This was not the first time that the PTI government attempted to create embarrassment for the military, he added while addressing Jaffarabad (Balochistan) District Bar on Saturday, according to statement issued from JI headquarters Mansoora.

Siraj said Balochistan was gifted with enormous resources but the rulers sitting in Islamabad and Quetta did nothing for the residents of the province. People in many parts of the province, he said, were living without electricity and gas despite the fact that Balochistan was providing energy to the entire country. He said clean drinking water was not available to the residents of Jaffarabad, Naseerabad and Dera Allahyar. He highlighted the need for establishment of Agriculture University in the area which had fertile agri land.

JI Balochistan chapter Emir Maulana Abdul Haq Hashmi and Jaffarabad District Bar President Zubair Ahmad Lashari also addressed on occasion.

 Red Mosque

Red Mosque [Jamia Hafsa} Resisting Regime Pressure.
[Excerpted from Sis. Asra Jihadi]

February 13.A group of hijabi women came to the Red mosque to show support for the sisters who are beseiged inside the masjid. The government sent female police to stop the supporters from entering the masjid. A sister from inside the masjid called out on loud hailer not to fight the female police who are just following orders.

This is a unique masjid where women following Islam in full hijab are challenging the authorities.

Feb. 14,.A spiritual victory at the Red Masjid. Juma salat was held and prayers were led by Maulana Abdul Aziz in defiance of government prohibition. [Many Pakistanis overseas read Dawn. Beware that this secularist paper is regurgitating government propaganda against the Red Mosque.]

Looks like Imran khan was busy with the visit of Erdogan.

 Hafiz Saeed

Islamic Preacher Hafiz Saeed & Scholar Abdur Rahman Makki Sentenced. Numerous Mosques Closed down.

Feb. 12. All the Pakistani media are reporting that an "anti-Terror" court has sentenced Hafiz Saeed and Abdur Rahman Makki five and half years in prison and $15000 fine. Scores of mosques they set up Pakistan along with charitable organizations they set up have been closed down.

They are accused of "financing terror." It's not clear what is the evidence against them. The convictions seem to be aimed at pleasing USA and India.

The Imran Khan regime wanted to indicate that Pakistan is not financing "terror."

The two have been opposed to mujahideen groups. They were interested in liberating Kashmir and were supported by the army which at one time was interested in liberating Kashmir.

Reports indicate that the evidence against them is non-existent and they may be released on appeal though it will take time.

On February 13, Islamic State launched two attacks in the Khanaqin area killing 3 Peshmarga Kurdish troops and wounding 7.

In the second attack they killed one and wounded 3.

On February 15, IS attacked killed two police in Buhriz, south of Diyala.

Humanitarian Disaster owing to Russian Terror Bombing. Fierce ground fighting with Slaughter. Mujahideen Counterattack Underway.

February 10 to 16.
Non-Stop Russian bombing over six days has terrorized the Muslim population west and south of Aleppo province and northeast of Maa'rat an-Numan in Irbid province.

The populatin is fleeing.

Russian troops, Shia-Iranian militias and Assad's elite troops with Hizbullah brigades came up against stiff Islamic resistance led by Tahrilr [al-Nusra], Defenders of the Faith and pro-Turkish Syrian militias.

The slaughter has been horrific. According to SOHR, 576 regime soldiers and 479 mujahideen have been killed over 22 days of fighting. The regime forces are now advancing on all fronts and are near Aleppo city and have cut the highway in the center of Idlib.

Intense Russian bombing forced the resistance to withdraw leading to extensive regime advances.

The fighting renewed on February 16 and the Islamic counterattack is making headway.

Columns of Turkish forces have entered Irbid province but are yet to confront regime forces.

However in north central Syria, Turkish artillery is helping opposition fighters to advance

In January 25th 2011, millions of Egyptians participated in a revolution that successfully ended the 30-year rule of dictator Hosni Mubarak. However, just two-and-half years later, a military coup occurred that overthrew democratic rule and started a tyrannical campaign that killed hundreds of protestors in the streets, detained tens of thousands, and led many more into exile.

According to Human Rights Watch reports, the military dictatorship in Egypt "has sent thousands of civilians to military courts, undermined the judiciary's independence, and executed dozens of people following flawed trials." Many detainees suffer from enforced disappearance where their families don't know their whereabouts for months or years, according to Amnesty International reports.

El Hatk ("The Assault") is a movie depicting the trauma faced by men and women in Egypt by a ruthless dictatorship.

The Human Ego is a Major Problem if not Tamed!

'The Soul Is Like A Wild Horse'...{!} And by the soul and He who proportioned it~ And inspired it [with discernment of] its wickedness and its righteousness~ He has succeeded who purifies it~
And he has failed who instills it [with corruption].
{Source...{'QURAN'~Surat Ash-Shams 91 ... Ayah #'s 7-8-9 & 10 }

When someone possesses a horse, on which they depend for their livelihood and transportation, it becomes imperative that the horse be tamed so as to display the utmost obedience.
If this horse is, at first, wild then its owner would try to control it through any means ,by jumping on it, pulling its reins, tying it, etc.
If this person is successful in gaining control of the horse, then the horse will obey their every command. However, if this person leaves their horse untamed it will remain wild and Disobedient...!

Such is the parable of the Soul~{ Nafs }~
The 'Nafs' [soul] must be trained regarding its inclinations. The internal struggle that every Muslim faces is when one has a conflicting goal with their Nafs...!
In other words~ your 'Nafs' wants one thing and your 'Iman' (Faith) causes you to want another thing. Overcoming the inclinations of your 'Nafs' is a difficult and sometimes painful process. Like the person who tames his horse, one must endure through the difficulty and struggles in order to gain control. It is important to remain steadfast in the process; for, if one was to give up after receiving the slightest resistance, this trains the horse that...all it needs to do is remain stubborn in order to get what it wants...{!} in to the demands of the 'Nafs' makes the process of taming your 'Nafs' even harder {!} Instead, one must abide by the principle of delayed gratification.

Delayed Gratification ...
Putting off some pleasure in order to have greater gratification at a later point. {Alhamdullilah} For example... you struggle against your 'Nafs' which may want to sleep or rest} in order to pray 'Qiyaam' {the night prayer} At first this is difficult, but in time a routine is built. Eventually... the reward you receive from Allah {Azza Wa Jall } outweighs any discomfort you may have faced{!}
And the Mercy of Allah is that He continues to make this process easier as time goes on, and as your reward increases even further {!}
A Lil word of Caution: The longer we wait to tame our soul, the harder the process will be.Purification of the soul is like a bitter pill...{!}
At first you hate it- because it causes you pain, tastes bad, etc etc ~but you tolerate it. Then, as its positive effects begin to show you begin to like it...then you begin to love it. Until cannot live without it.
'Subhan Allah'{!!!}}
