 Dr Kaukab Siddique

Latest Khutba
Only from the Qur'an we can Understand what is Hitting us and Why.
We can Still save America through Repentance.

On March 27, Br. Kaukab Siddique gave the khutba at Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen. Muslims were told not to come into the masjid if they were not well. Security was in place because of the growing situation of uncertainty.

The following is an outline of the khutba for distribution to Muslims throughout America on line.

Text: The Qur'an. Chapter 105.
  1. Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the Companions of the Elephant?
  2. Did He not make their treacherous plan go astray?
  3. And He sent against them flights of Birds
  4. Striking them with stones of baked clay.
  5. Then did He make them like an empty field of stalks and straw (of which the corn) has been eaten up.

  1. Allah Almighty is the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe. There is no one more powerful than Allah.

  2. Blessings of Allah be on all the Prophets and Messengers including Noah, Abraham, Mpses, Jesus and Muhammad who was the last and the perfection of of Islam.

  3. Muslims have been under oppression and are facing genocide all over the world. They were like soft targets facing the heavy and deadly weaponry of their enemies.

  4. China put millions of Muslims in concentration camps. China humiliated and abused Muslims and tried to destroy Islam. Even the Qur'an was made illegal. Muslims were not allowed to fast and were forced to swallow pork. No one came to their help.

  5. Muslims seemed so helpless. Their countries were occupied, bombed and destroyed, be it Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Kashmir, Somalia, northern Nigeria, Burma. Ruthless dictators were imposed on them in Egypt, Saudi, Iran and Bangladesh, with the support of the superpowers. It seemed as if Islam itself would be destroyed. Palestine has been occupied. All of Gaza is like a concentration camp. Masjid al-Aqsa is desecrated.

  6. The Qur'an gives us the story of the people of the Elephant. This tyrant, with a powerful army with an elephant in the forefront was bent on destroying the most sacred center of Islam, the Kaaba itself. The Arabs, with their lean camels were no match for the scary power of the Elephant. It seemed as if the end had come for the very basis of Islamic sacredness.

  7. Then Allah sent countless little birds. The sky was covered with them. They dropped tiny little stones on the army of the oppressors. Coming down from a great height, these tiny stones came with the power
    of little missiles. The army led by the Elephant was wiped out and looked like a cornfield which had been harvested.

  8. Part Two.

  9. Now look at our condition. In all the arrogance and power of the modern world something very TINY is being dropped on us. It is so tiny that we cannot even see it and there is no cure for it.

  10. Suddenly a Chinese city of 20 MILLION was closed down. Suddenly 80,000 Chinese Communists were sick and 3000 were dead.

  11. Not only was China closed down, all its contacts came under tremendous blows of this tiny invisible disaster. Italy had good relations with China and now the whole country is under quarantine. Iran is miserable and is begging for sanctions to be removed. Israel has closed down the whole country, not letting anyone come in. From there it went to Spain.

  12. None of the arrogant ones are immune. The Prime Minister of Britain, living without marriage with his pregnant girfriend is infected. The Prime Minister of Canada 's familiy is infected.

  13. Hadith of Muhammad, pbuh, helps us to understand the Qur'an. It says that those who see great wrong being done and don't try to stop it, they too will be punished. We may all be punished if we kept quiet, watching the evils of pornography, the oppression of women, homosexuality, and not saying a word against it.

  14. Of course we must take all steps so that we do not infect anyone nor does anyone infect us. Wash your hands, going and coming. Do not come here or to any gathering if you are not well. Eat healthy food to improve the immune system and exercise regularly.

  15. No one has the right to close down a masjid. It is haram. Muslims are listening to kuffar and not listening to Allah. Those who want to pray together after precautions, let them pray. Many mosques have shut themselves down though there were no instances of infection. Three people die in a city and the kuffar shut down the whole city.

  16. Remember that we all have to die. There are no exceptions. No one is immortal. Precautions are good but fear and panic are not part of Islam.
    Help the local businesses. There is no need for America to collapse. Seek forgiveness and repentance. We must save this country which has many good people in it.

May Allah forgive our sins and shortcoming and save us from the punishment of jahannum. Ameen.



Molana Nasir Madni:
Islamic Scholar teaching Women's rights and gently criticizng Imran regime attacked.

On Match 16 a popular Islamic scholar Nasir Madni was abducted by a gang of ten near the Kharian area. He was stripped, beaten with sticks and pipes, videotaped naked and threatened not to complain. He uses humor and the local language, Punjabi, to teach Islamic rights of women including inheritance. He emerged strong from the beating and found out that he has widespread support in the public though he is not part of any group or organization.

A private TV show interviewed him and soon the news was all over the country. The regime kept quiet for a week but under public pressure, the police arrested 6 people including the suspects. A week later Imran mumbled some unclear sympathy.

Molana Madni was criticizing sufiism [he is ahle hadith] and joking about religious big wigs who say, recite so many kalimas and then blow on those who are sick [even with Corona.]

Jamaate Islami sent a delegation to show sympathy for him.

[Note that the Daily Dawn which supports westernized women is silent on the plight of Molana Madni. We thank Urdu Point TV for letting hm give extensive details on what happened.]

Imams arrested for trying to lead prayers on Friday

March 27: The Pakistani government arrested the Imams of 38 mosques in Karachi, 14 in Hyderabad, and 5 in Punjab to stop them from leading Friday prayers. However, most mosques all over the country had prayers on Friday, including a group of 500 people in a major mosque in Karachi. The government is trying to stop the Covid-19 virus but the people are not obeying.

Was it Manufactured as a Weapon?
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]
New York City

The only thing we have been told is that the coronavirus came from Wuhan, China. But, the question is how did it come into existence there. The Coronavirus Scare has yielded various theories about it.

One point of view is that it was a Chinese biological weapon.

In a podcast, human rights attorney and anti-biological weapons activist, Dr. Francis A. Boyle has stated that the coronavirus is an advanced "man-made" version of SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), which he says is also "man-made." Wuhan, China, where the first cases of the coronavirus occurred, was allegedly produced at the Bio Safety Level 4 (BSL-4) plant there. A source of past SARS outbreaks, according to Dr. Boyle.

Dr. Boyle drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, which Pres. Bush Sr signed into law.

Of course, the first known act of biological warfare was the gifting of small pox infected blankets to Native Americans by European Settlers in the 18th century. So, the idea of governments spreading diseases is not new.

If coronavirus is indeed a "man-made" virus then the worldwide government responses make sense. Many countries have shut down their borders, completely.

These measures have all been efforts to curb the spread and the effects of an alleged biological weapon. Or is it?

A article (The Conspiracy Theories about the Origins of the Coronavirus, Debunked) is critical of these "conspiracy theories" and even states that scientists can prove that the coronavirus is from nature, not made in a bio-weapons facility. It warned that such talk leads people to distrust health experts.

The article suggests that the coronavirus is a natural germ that may have been transmitted from animals to humans. The question researchers are searching for is who or what was the intermediary that caused such a crossover from animal to human. A Time article (1/22/2020) states that SARS was found to have originated from civet cats sold at a market in Guandong, China.

The Huanan Wholesale Seafood Market, which also sold the meat of wildlife in Wuhan, such as bats and dogs, has since been closed. The conditions there were very unsanitary, in spite of passing an inspection in late 2019. Livestock were housed and slaughtered next to meat already prepared to be sold to the public.

Researchers are still in Wuhan investigating the role the wildlife market may have played in humans contracting the coronavirus. Some blame accuse China of taking too long to alert the World Health Organization (WHO) of the coronavirus outbreak.

According to the same article, more dangerous pathogens would be better suited as bio-weapons because compared to those viruses (i.e. Ebola) the coronavirus is not as transmissible and has milder symptoms. The world wide death toll from coronavirus, as of this writing, is around 3 percent. A low number compared to to other disease outbreaks.

The world governments should observe and follow Singapore's example for how it handled their SARS cases and now the coronavirus. They are China's next door neighbor and got the brunt of the SARS outbreak but were able to contain it to minimal cases after just four months.

China has banned the wildlife trade. Buying food from local farmers is being touted as an environmentally-safe way to operate eateries in the U.S. This is how consumers should operate world-wide. Sustainable farming and buying food locally is apart of the Sunnah. Besides incorporating humane treatment practices, the distance traveled for seafood and other (halal) meat is shorter, which decreases the risk of contracting diseases. Plus, the food supply is not exhausted through exportation.

Muslims can handle this Coronavirus Scare by keeping in mind that Allah tells us "to be firm and patient, in pain (or suffering) and adversity, and throughout all periods of panic. Such are the people of truth, the Allah-fearing. " (2:177)

Recently, an Imam had to point out that when it is time for Allah to call us back to Him there is no way to prevent it. Faith and following the cleaning practices in the Sunnah is enough for us.

Note: In the previous article, Dr. Anthony Fauci's title was mistakenly given as the Surgeon General when he is actually National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director and physician with the National Institute of Health (NIH).

Israel is using coronavirus to implement the deal of the century and Palestinians are trapped between the pandemic and Israel's brutal military occupation.

The global spread of coronavirus has necessitated movement restrictions around the world, including in Israel and Palestine.

As the occupying state, Israel controls all entrances to and exits from the occupied West Bank and Gaza. Last week, it closed off Palestinian-administered areas under the pretext of "limiting the spread" of coronavirus. Bethlehem has been fully locked down for weeks.

It is clear to Palestinians that Israel is taking advantage of Covid-19, exploiting the West Bank lockdown to accelerate the annexation of Palestinian land, while allowing Israeli settlers to attack Palestinian civilians - further complicating Palestinian efforts to combat the pandemic.

Movement restrictions

The Israeli army is using the pretext of coronavirus to impose further closures and movement restrictions on Palestinians. This ought to be a matter of public health, and the restrictions should apply equally to Israelis, as anyone can get infected - but the Jewish settlers in the occupied West Bank, who live just a few hundred metres from the locked-down Palestinian communities, are not facing the same restrictions.

Israelis apparently believe they can take advantage of the current situation to implement the US "deal of the century". Israel's imposition of restrictions on movement in bantustan-like Palestinian areas is an early warning of how things would work if US President Donald Trump's deal were to be implemented.

For me, as a Palestinian born and raised under the Israeli occupation, the new ban on movement brings back memories of the curfews and siege imposed by the Israeli occupation on the Palestinian territories, especially during the Second Intifada, under the pretext of security.

During that time, the Israeli army locked down Palestinian communities and turned our lives into an unbearable nightmare, subject to severe repression.

In 2002, in my hometown of Qira in the northern West Bank, my newborn daughter Lina got a viral infection that caused severe diarrhea and fever for several days - but we couldn't take her to a hospital or doctor, due to the Israeli-imposed curfew.

A year later, we discovered that this untreated infection had caused chronic kidney failure, and a kidney transplant was needed to save her life. The current restrictions could similarly cause serious problems for chronically ill Palestinians, including my daughter.

Collective punishment

So far, more cases of coronavirus have been reported in Israel than in the West Bank. More than 2,500 cases have been recorded in Israel, compared with fewer than 100 in the Palestinian territories. Yet, despite the unprecedented health crisis and widespread social isolation measures, Israeli police "have chosen now, of all times, to escalate their abuse and collective punishment" of Palestinians in East Jerusalem, according to the human rights group B'Tselem.

The level of violence perpetrated by Jewish settlers has simultaneously increased, with reports citing a campaign of attacks against Palestinian shepherds and farmers. In the Bethlehem area, where Palestinians live under strict quarantine, settlers recently uprooted hundreds of trees belonging to Palestinians.

The Israeli army also recently allowed Jewish settlers into an archaeological site in the village of Sebastia in the northern West Bank, despite a Palestinian Authority decision to close down tourist sites and ban gatherings in an effort to fight the coronavirus outbreak.

In the meantime, Israel has started building roads for settlers near my home village south of Nablus - a clear attempt to define bantustans and ghettos for Palestinians. The settlers, under the protection of the Israeli occupation army, do not miss an opportunity to cause more suffering to the Palestinian people, using various pretexts and excuses.

In Gaza, which has registered just a handful of cases of coronavirus, there are serious concerns over the capacity of the healthcare system, which was already in crisis due to the Israeli-imposed blockade.

Dirty and overcrowded prisons

Israeli authorities recently reported that four Palestinian prisoners had been infected with coronavirus in an Israeli prison, after contact with an Israeli investigator who had Covid-19.

More than 5,000 Palestinians, including women and children, are currently being held in Israeli prisons, which are notoriously old, dirty, overcrowded, and lacking in basic hygiene supplies. If Israel cares about prisoners' safety, it should release them.

In 1991, during the First Intifada, I was arrested by the Israeli army at the age of 17. Investigators tortured me for 39 days, using all means of physical and psychological torture. I witnessed firsthand the solitary confinement conditions in a very tiny, dirty cell without windows; my health was neglected.

Palestinians today are trapped and fighting on two fronts: one against the pandemic, and the other against Israel's brutal military occupation.

Yet one positive outcome of the recent lockdown is that it may draw attention to the daily movement restrictions that are omnipresent in Palestinians' lives, but which most of the world doesn't care about, or even know to exists.

Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam ' ala Rasulillah'.

Be mindful of ALLAH and ALLAH will protect you.
'As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu.'

Abu al-'Abbas ~'Abdullah bin 'Abbas~ {Radiyallahu Anhuma} reported...
One day I was behind the Prophet {Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wa Sallam} and he said to me:
'O young man, I shall teach you some words of advice Be mindful of ALLAH and ALLAH will protect you.
Be mindful of ALLAH, and you will find Him in front of you...!
If you have need to ask... ask of ALLAH ... {!}
and if you seek help... seek help from ALLAH...{!}
Know that even if the Nation [or the whole community] were to gather together to benefit you with something, they would not benefit you with anything except that which ALLAH has already recorded for you!
And that if they gather together to harm you with something...they would not be able to harm you with anything except that which ALLAH has already recorded against you!

'The Pens have been lifted and the pages have Dried'.
[Source ~Al-Tirmidhi : It is a good, genuine Hadith]

~A Little Note~
*Prophet*~ (SallAllaahu 'Alayhi wa Sallam) statement ...
"The Pens have been lifted and the Pages have dried" further emphasizes what has preceded .... and there is no contradiction with that by way of abrogation or change. ~Knowing that we are tested throughout this life and that Allah [Azza Wa Jall] tests those people that He loves ! ~
It is through those tests that we can grow stronger and wiser ['In Shaa Allah' 'Aameen'.]
People simply don't make as much progress through times of ease..
Allah [Aza Wa Jall] tests us with money, love, family, friends, children, abilities, etc, etc... we learn as each one is taken away or reduced to be grateful for what we have [Alhamdullilah] Because in the end we KNOW that *The Pens have been Lifted and the Pages have Dried.

Hadith of the Week

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

When Allah created Paradise and Hellfire, he sent Gabriel to Paradise saying: Behold it and what I have prepared therein for its people. Gabriel came and looked at it and what Allah had prepared therein for its people. He returned to Allah and he said: By your might, no one will hear of it but that he will enter it. Allah ordered that it be surrounded by adversity and he said: Return to it and behold what I have prepared therein for its people. Gabriel returned and found that it was surrounded by hardship. He returned to Allah and he said: By your might, I fear that no one will enter it. Allah said: Go to the Hellfire and behold it and what I have prepared therein for its people. Gabriel found that it was in layers, one above another. He returned to Allah and he said: By your might, no one who hears of it will enter it. Allah ordered that it be surrounded by desires and he said: Return to it. Gabriel returned and he said: By your might, I fear that no one will escape it.

'No Escapes:' Leaked Memos Reveal China's Manual for Mass Detention of Uighur Muslims

A new leak of highly classified Chinese government documents detail China's manual for running mass detention camps holding hundreds of thousands of Uighur Muslims and other minorities in the Xinjiang region. The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists' Bethany Allen-Ebrahimain, a former national security reporter for The Daily Beast, obtained the "China Cables." The cables include a nine-page memo sent out in 2017 by Zhu Hailun, then deputy-secretary of Xinjiang's Communist Party and the region's top security official, to those who run the camps. The memo details a classified list of guidelines, personally approved by the security official, which say the camps should be run as high security prisons, with strict discipline, punishments, and "no escapes." China's U.K. ambassador, Liu Xiaoming, called the documents "pure fabrication and fake news."

Other documents from the leak reveal how the Chinese government uses mass surveillance and a predictive-policing algorithm that analyzes personal data. One document shows how the system flagged 1.8 million people simply because they had a data sharing app, Zapya, on their phone. A memo also says detainees will only be released from the camps when they demonstrate they have transformed their beliefs and language. "Promote the repentance and confession of the students for them to understand deeply the illegal, criminal, and dangerous nature of their past activity," the BBC quotes the memo as saying.

Even though it is agreed by vast majority of Nigerian scholars that the outbreak of pandemic of Covid- 19 is a direct act of Allah, many in their usual deviance to change have categorized the policy of government about stay at home heretical, especially the ban of Jumat services in our central mosques.

Whereas the most prominent scholars in Lagos, where the highest incidence of Corvid-19 is recorded officially issued formal notice banning people from coming to mosques, other believe the noises of stay at home are echoed by scholars and Ustazhes whose reliances in Allah are low.

Many congregations are being pumped into by security operatives in Lagos and Ogun States. An Imam and his members of congregation was arrested in Ikirun in Irepodun local government area of Osun State, Southwestern Nigeria.

On the other hand, the advocates of stay at home (especially Muslims speaking for Government) seem to be overdoing things in this regard. An Imam of House of Assembly Mosque in Lagos who doubles as a commissioner in Lagos State while warning that the only way to put a stop to the spread of this deadly disease is by staying at home went too far by subconsciously stating that black seed cannot cure Corona Virus, the latter being a death on its own. Here the Imam goofed and has been taken up on social media with lines of refutations.

Nigeria has recorded 81 cases of Covid-19 at the time of compilation of this piece with Lagos in the lead with about 65 people testing positive to the virus.

Nigerian government appears to be biased in enforcing the law of stay at home, especially against Muslims. Some prominent churches are allegedly breaking this rule by holding services with impunity and nothing serious have been done against them so far, while police are bumping into mosques to arrest offenders.

Another twist to this outbreak in Nigeria is the bad wishes of many people hiding under the covers of politics for the president (Muhammadu Buhari) to test positive. Some are stupidly accusing him of lie for testing negative while his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari tests positive. We have some southern Christians on social media who displayed their readiness to jubilate if the president test positive.
Many Muslims here need to be well tutored on the principle of reliance and trust in Allah because self destruction is looming with fatalistic ideologies.

It was rumored that Tabligh brothers vowed to hold their weekly or monthly get- together or usrah at their Lagos headquarters in Oluti last week,but for the lockdown policy of Lagos State government.

One would think these people would learn from Malaysian experience where many Tabligh members were infected.

The writer enjoys all Muslims to seek sincere repentance and supplicate Allah to put an end to this test
