America and China: The owners of the Two Gardens. The Qur'an. sura 68. Verses 5 to 33.
by Kaukab Siddique

These two superpowers had decided to monpolize the wealth of the world.

They wanted to make sure that the poor and the needy would be left out.

They did not seek the blessings of the Creator, considering the words of Truth as mere stories

They wanted to harvest their wealth early in the morning so that no needy or poor person would share it.

Then came a blight from the Almighty. We could call it Covid 19. Invisible death and destructuin of the wealth of the exploiters.

When they came to their gardens, they could not recognize what they thought was flourishing. They thought they had lost their way:

Look at the devastation wrought by covid. People staying away from each other. No more parties. No bars, night clubs, dances, homosex or random sex. Suddenly people are behaving in fear of an unknown power.We need tp realize that this calamity is only a warning. The punishment from Allah is immeasurably greater.

Repent. Repent. Repent.
Repent for Imperialism.
Repent for Exploitation of the weak and the needy.
Repent for Zionism and racism.
Repent for slavery/
Repent for the genocide of Native American tribes.
Repent for Chinese Communist Concentration camps.
Repent for forcing Muslims to stop praying and pushing pork on them.
Repent for support of tyrants, kings and dictators.
Repent for genocide in Kashmir.
Repent for the massacres of Rohingyas.
Repent for the destruction of Islamic cities, Mosul, al-Raqqa, eastern Aleppo, the towns of Ghouta, the villaes on the Euphrates.
Repent for bombing soft Muslim targets who could not shoot back.

Allah's mercy is always there. Good people can lead the way. Millions of Americans and Chinese are good people though misled by controlled media.

Sura 68: verses 5 to 33. The Qur'an.
5. When Our Verses are recited to him, he says, "Myths of the ancients!"
﴿١٦﴾ سَنَسِمُ§ُ عَلَى الْخُرْط¥ومِ
16. We will mark him on the snout.
﴿١٧﴾ إِنَّا بَلَوْنَ›هُمْ كَمَا بَلَوْنَ› أَصْحَاب¤ الْجَنَّِ إِذْ أَقْسَمُ¨ا لَيَصْرِ¥ُنَّهَا مُصْبِحِ نَ
17. We tested them, as We tested the owners of the garden—when they vowed to harvest it in the morning.
﴿١٨﴾ وَلَا يَسْتَثْ¦ُونَ
18. And they made no exception.
﴿١٩﴾ فَطَافَ عَلَيْهَ› طَائِفٌ مِنْ رَبِّكَ وَهُمْ نَائِمُو¦َ
19. But a calamity from your Lord went around it while they slept.
﴿٢٠﴾ فَأَصْبَ—َتْ كَالصَّر¦يمِ
20. And it became as if picked.
﴿٢١﴾ فَتَنَاد¤وْا مُصْبِحِ نَ
21. In the morning, they called to one another.
﴿٢٢﴾ أَنِ اغْدُوا عَلَىٰ حَرْثِكُ¥ْ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ صَارِمِي¦َ
22. "Go early to your plantation, if you want to harvest."
﴿٢٣﴾ فَانْطَل¤قُوا وَهُمْ يَتَخَاف¤تُونَ
23. So they set out, whispering to one another.
﴿٢٤﴾ أَنْ لَا يَدْخُلَ¦َّهَا الْيَوْم¤ عَلَيْكُ¥ْ مِسْكِين¢
24. "No poor person is to enter it upon you today."
﴿٢٥﴾ وَغَدَوْ› عَلَىٰ حَرْدٍ قَادِرِي¦َ
25. And they proceeded early, resolved in intent.
﴿٢٦﴾ فَلَمَّا رَأَوْهَ› قَالُوا إِنَّا لَضَالُّ¨نَ
26. But when they saw it, they said, "We are lost.
﴿٢٧﴾ بَلْ نَحْنُ مَحْرُوم¥ونَ
27. In fact, we have been deprived."
﴿٢٨﴾ قَالَ أَوْسَطُ§ُمْ أَلَمْ أَقُلْ لَكُمْ لَوْلَا تُسَبِّح¥ونَ
28. The most moderate of them said, "Did I not say to you, 'if only you would praise?'"
﴿٢٩﴾ قَالُوا سُبْحَان¤ رَبِّنَا إِنَّا كُنَّا ظَالِمِي¦َ
29. They said, "Glory be to our Lord—We were in the wrong."
﴿٣٠﴾ فَأَقْبَ¤َ بَعْضُهُ¥ْ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍ يَتَلَاو¤مُونَ
30. Then they turned to one another, blaming one another.
﴿٣١﴾ قَالُوا يَا وَيْلَنَ› إِنَّا كُنَّا طَاغِينَ
31. They said, "Woe to us—we were domineering.
﴿٣٢﴾ عَسَىٰ رَبُّنَا أَنْ يُبْدِلَ¦َا خَيْرًا مِنْهَا إِنَّا إِلَىٰ رَبِّنَا رَاغِبُو¦َ
32. Perhaps our Lord will give us a better substitute for it. We are turning to our Lord in hope ."
﴿٣٣﴾ كَذَٰلِك¤ الْعَذَاœُ ۖ وَلَعَذَ›بُ الْآخِرَِ أَكْبَرُ ۚ لَوْ كَانُوا يَعْلَمُ¨نَ
33. Such is the punishment. But the punishment of the Hereafter is greater—if they only knew.



Mosque Gatherings Ignore Imran's Warnings.
Incidents in Sheihupura & Multan.

by Qaiser Sharif.

LAHORE April 10: Welcoming the suo moto notice taken by the Chief Justice of Pakistan about the government performance in respect of the corona virus, the Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq. has expressed the hope that this would help solve the problems being faced by the masses.

Addressing a big Juma congregation at the Mansooara mosque, he said that the government had not taken the issue seriously. On the other hand, he said that in Ireland, the government had taken the matter seriously from the very beginning and its Prime Minister himself a medical doctor, had even rendered services as a medic to overcome the problem.

The JI chief said that the poor and the have-nots were running from pillar to post for official help but it was not in sight. The government was not even able to ensure the supply of food stuff at the Utility stores.

He said the trading community had announced to open their shops from April 15 while the situation was still not within control. Therefore, the government should sit down with the traders representatives and find out a middle course.

The JI chief said the government should have ensure the uninterrupted supply of the essential items at the door step of the people but this had not been done till today. As a result, thousands of people were facing starvation. He said that in such circumstances, the volunteers of the JI and Al-Khidmat Foundation and other welfare bodies were rendering commendable job.

Sirajul Haq deplored the killing of two police men at the check post in Sheikhupura and said it was highly painful. He urged the Prime Minister and the Punjab Chief Minister to take notice of the incident. He said that the police men should be politer to the general public and the training of the police force was badly required. He said that if the police men took the law in their own hand, the courts would become irrelevant. At the same time, he said the people should also give due respect to the police so that such incidents were avoided.

Sirajul Haq also deplored the death of a poor woman during the distribution of ration in Multan and injuries to several others on the occasion. He said the incident had exposed the arrangements for the distribution of ration to the poor. He said the incident proved gross mismanagement. He said that if ration was distributed in such a manner, large scale casualties were feared.

LAHORE, Apr. 10; Deputy chief of the Jamaat e Islami, Liaqat Baloch, has said that the fast spread of the corona virus required extensive testing facilities to control the situation.

Talking to the media, he said that a trained technical staff was needed for the purpose. He said that the present staff at the hospitals was badly short to face the challenge.

He said that the civil and democratic governments in Asian countries had failed to face the situation created by the corona virus due to which the influence of the military was increasing. He said that in the country, a group within the government was blaming the pilgrims, the Tableeghi Jamaat and those offering prayers by congregation for the spread of virus. He said that in such a situation, the foremost need was to maintain and strengthen national unity.

He was confident that the nation would be able to come out of this crisis success.

A Community of Muslims in Prison.
A Prison imam in Jessup, Maryland, writing to Br. Kaukab via his wife, Sis. Khadija in Baltimore.

In shaa Allah you and your family are well and healthy. My husband Abdul Hakim sends his Salaams and apologies for the delay in sending this correspondence. It has truly taken all week to make a simple statement. Not to be put into the article but literally communication has been severely choppy between poor connection and I could barely understand what he was saying, shortened time on the phone (15 mins now for a FREE call), or just being severely skeptical of using the public jail phones due to sanitation and covid19 concerns. The inmates there literally are on there own to survive this outbreak which is mostly affecting the guards, officers, and contracted employees who get to wear masks but the inmates now cannot wear any time of face covering to protect themselves as of this week. Last week it was ok to do so and now it is prohibited and punishable.

When asking my husband, Imam Abdul Hakim Mumin, about the conditions of the Ummah of Patuxent Institution during this time of COVID19 and how it is affecting the Ummah, here is what he had to say:

"As Salaam Alaikum Brothers and Sisters in Islam. Greetings to our Prophet Muhammed (SAW), the family of the Prophet (RA), the Sahabas (RA), and the Sahabayets (RA). May Allah be pleased with them and May they forever rest well in Paradise.

How is the Ummah holding up under the current conditions ? It is hard to answer that question because here there are twenty-two (22) tiers with the Muslim population spread out amongst those tiers. For a more than a month now, we have not been allowed to congregate for Juma'ah, for classes, for Shura, nor for general nasihah. We do not get to congregate at all except for brief conversations in "the yard" because of "social distancing." With not having Juma'ah for over a month now, it is easy for some to forget that Juma'ah is a reminder for the believer. The younger Muslims have a deficiency in the Iman and not being able to admonish nor are the younger Muslims able to properly receive the nasihah due to 'social distancing' which makes it even more difficult to encourage the younger Muslims properly. They comprise over 90% of the Ummah. Keeping the younger Muslims and the new Shahadas on track has become a serious challenge because for the most part they only see Islam 'Juma'ah to Juma'ah' and not a true every day , living, breathing way of life largely due to the covid19 breakdown of our congregational instructions and other activities. Having community is extremely important.

On a better note, one of the last activities we got to celebrate was on February 29, 2020, we celebrated a team of 12 Muslim brothers who competed amongst about 40 other Brothers in what we called 'Islamic Jepardy Challenge.' The teams competed for the chance to be the 'Champions.' They received personalized certificates of achievement and 'Championship' as well as other prize packages we were able to put together like books, sweets from commissary, etc. It was quite exciting for them. This was one of the activities put in place to help gear up for Rahmadhan . Overall our morale is high, despite the challenges we are facing.

The hadeeth we remind ourselves to keep in rememberance during these times is one that was reported by Lady Aisha (RA) in which Lady Aisha (RA) said
'I asked Allah's Messenger (SAW) about pestilence and he said, 'It is a punishment which Allah sends upon whomever He wills but Allah has made it as a mercy to the Believers. Anyone who remains in a town which is plagued with pestilence maintaining patience expecting a reward from Allah and knowing that nothing will befall him other than what Allah has ordained for him. He will receive a reward of Shaheed.'

Another hadeeth which we constantly keep in rememberance also is an hadeeth from Abu Sa'id (RA) and Abu Huraira (RA) which reported that 'the Prophet (SAW) said never is a believer stricken with a discomfort, an illness, an anxiety, a grief or mental worry, or a prickling of a thorn but that Allah will expiate a sin on account of his patience.'

All of these things we face, have faced, will face are our tests in Dunya. We have to bear that in mind. Allah (SWT) will always bless us with ease after hardship. May Allah (SWT) keep us amongst the righteously guided so that we may righteously guide others. May our names be written amongst those who have kept the faith and continued to do good and show good character amidst any challenge or test that may come our way. In shaa Allah we will see the barakats of what is going on world wide. We must also remember this is the Qadr of Allah To'ala. May Allah keep us safe and healthy.

-Imam Abdul Hakim Mumin

Feedback on Coronavirus. What should Muslims do?
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]

New York City - According to a article by Rachael Rettner, "How does the new coronavirus compare with the flu?, " 38 million Americans have the flu with 390,000 hospitalizations and 28,000 deaths, as of March 25th. As of April 11th, there are over 500,000 coronavirus cases, 29,000 recoveries, but 18, 700 deaths. The article states that doctors have been treating the flu for over a century now while they are very unfamiliar with coronavirus since it is a new virus. They seem to be letting COVID-19 run its course in patients.

This "Social Distancing" is pointless if we're to believe that the coronavirus is lurking around corners waiting to pounce on us because this is not how any disease operates. It is a symptom of something gone amiss and the best way to prevent it is with proper hygiene, strengthening the immune system, and prayer. If cleanliness is not a serious factor in fighting COVID-19 then, it will resurface once this shutdown ceases.

Many activists, some politicians, and health experts have accused the Trump Administration of being lackadaisical and unprepared in dealing with coronavirus. It looks like a scramble. to get things done. The The secret supply of 85 million N95 respirators and other masks were distributed during the 2009 swine flu pandemic but the supply was never replenished!

I was watching a YouTube live event called "Diddy's Black America & Coronavirus." What Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and Activist Angela Rye stated resonated with me because they spoke of the Black and Latino communities being disproportionately affected due to environmental racism. They claimed that Blacks and Latinos are now the largest number of coronavirus cases in New York City.
Even Rikers Island has a number of prisoners infected with COVID-19. How does someone who is locked up get infected with a new disease? New prisoners.

The warning from this talk was that, yes, Black people can get it but, the media has only been showcasing White suffering. Also, Blacks and Latinos disproportionately suffer from asthma because these communities are dumping grounds for environmental waste and contain numerous bus depots. I always know I am near a bus depot in my area because I can smell the fumes from running buses a few blocks from the location.

People with asthma, high blood pressure, or diabetes are susceptible to succumbing to COVID-19, which are mostly people of African-descent. This COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the same disparities between rich and poor in America. Plus, medical treatment for these maladies in these communities is often inadequate.

And as usual rich Whites realize that they cannot completely insulate themselves from it. Once again, America, the most "powerful" country in the world is proving to be inept at caring for its people.

Then, I had to click off Diddy's event because I was hearing very few solutions!

Before celebrities and rich people started testing positive for COVID-19 the course of action was to allow the weaker links, mainly the elderly, to simply die out. Some people believe that Darwin's Theory of Evolution is rooted in White Supremacy.

Singapore handled SARS and contained it within 4 months in 2003. They have since implemented the same successful measure in dealing with COVID-19.

The thought of the USA implementing the same measures, listed below, is laughable and frightening at the same time:

These measures lessen burdens on health care workers and financial burdens of those being quarantined.

An anonymous emergency room doctor said that the U.S. received warnings about the coronavirus for three months before it took those warnings seriously. By the way, it was believed that the coronavirus came from bats served at the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan but, there have been cases involving people who never patronized that market.

Muslims need to take the necessary cleanliness guidelines according to the Sunnah, pray, and seek advice from non-political health experts offering solutions. Now, health experts are recommending the wearing of masks, especially when you are in close quarters with strangers. In New York, that is still necessary.

Ziyad Yaghi's Appeal Turned down. His heartbroken mother mourns his suffering in poetry.

Beware of a Mother When She Cries
When a mother's tears drop on the ground
Beware for nothing can be worse than the Earth when it absorbs her tears.
When the sun with its puffed up belly
Shines and absorbs all that the Earth can give
Then the clouds line up fighting and quarrelling
Which one will swallow the golden tears?
That's how thunder erupts
And lightening then follows from between the swelled up clouds
No one really knows the beginning of the Earth
Or the end when will it come
Or when an asteroid will wipe out humanity
As it has wiped out dinosaurs
In the past. Then at night.
No one knows the silence of the night
When a heart flies into the distance
And a soul has been taken back by its Creator
And when breaths are muffled
So a partner will not hear the anguish of a throbbing heart
When the foot of the bed shakes
And the mattress no longer can take Seeping tears
Let the gray haired clouds speak for themselves
The darkened purple painted mixed shades of colors
Shake their existence when they hear Mothers cry
When they witness atrocities of a filthy and greedy planet
Each wants money or fame
Not caring who they hurt or who they step on
If God decides to swing His mighty arm
And throw an asteroid in the middle of Earth
Knocking people like a bunch of pins in a bowling alley
Then maybe we will have some regrets
And beg God if we can return
And give us another chance

This is how the New York Times Reported the final Denial of Justice to Imam Jamil.

April 6. WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is declining to take the case of a 1960s black militant formerly known as H. Rap Brown who is in prison for killing a Georgia sheriff's deputy in 2000.

As is usual, the justices didn't comment Monday in turning away Brown's case. Brown had argued his constitutional rights were violated at trial.

Brown converted to Islam and now goes by the name Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin. He gained prominence more than 50 years ago as a Black Panthers leader and was at one point the chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.

In 2002, Al-Amin was convicted of murder in the death of Fulton County sheriff's Deputy Ricky Kinchen and the wounding of Kinchen's partner, Deputy Aldranon English. He was sentenced to life in prison.

Dr. Aafia Siddiqui is still in a US prison.
Aafia's family has expressed great fear that she is being kept n prison even while the corona virus is spreading.

Nadrat Siddique has found unique and creative ways of spreading the word about the suffering of Aafia by wearing a shirt with Aafia's name, in prominent marathon and semi-marathon races where thousands of Americans congregated.

In Pakistan, the name of Aafia has become a household name connoting the injustice and oppression coming out of America.

In March, one of Pakistan's most eloquent preachers, Khadim Hussain Rizvi, urged Pakistanis to rise up and bring the daughter of Pakistan home. He used powerful verses from the poetry of Iqbal, the conceptual thinker who created Pakistan, to drive home the tragedy of Aafia Siddiqui.

'Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was SalaatuWas Salaam 'ala Rasulillah'
'As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu'.

I begin by warning myself and yourselves not to be from those who are in a state of 'Ghaflah'~(غفلة) ... 'In Shaa Allah'

The Disease of Al Ghaflah.
The disease of 'Al-Ghaflah' to be in a state of neglecting your duty to Allah
(Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) is a disease that many, many people, unfortunately, of the Ummatul Islaam have fallen into.
It is to be in a state of forgetting the Day that you will be questioned by
Allah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala).
The Day He will ask you for the big and the small, the good and the wrong, the Halaal and the Haraam, the correct and the mistake -everything will be asked of you by Allah (subhaanahu wa ta'aala).
Allah {Azza Wa Jall} says...
"Draws near for mankind their reckoning, while they turn away in heedlessness. Comes not unto them an admonition (a chapter of the Qur'an) from their Lord as a recent revelation but they listen to it while they play, with their hearts occupied (with evil things).."
[Source~ 'Qur'an' Surat Al-Anbiyaa' (21) A # 1-3]

Many of the Muslim 'Ummah', they listen to the Qur'an and their eyes will never shed tears, not once, living their whole life listening to the word of Allah and not once in their life will they shed a tear from the fear of Allah. Muslims will live their whole life listening to the 'Ahadeeth' and the 'Sunnah' of Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and their hearts are not moved:
'their hearts occupied' with other things' .

...But the actual danger is not that the heart is preoccupied but the danger is that there are people who know that they are committing mistakes: eating riba' ,not praying, they know they are disobeying Allah but then they look around themselves and they see that they have cars, they have wealth, a career, an education, a job, wife, children and he says all of this is 'Ni'mah' (a favour) therefore Allah is pleased with me but actually it is a test and trial from Allaah.
To be tested by being given from Allah's goodness is a harder test for you than for Allah to remove some of your goodness.
Because when you have wealth, when you have goodness all around you, you are blinded, you do not actually see that you are committing sins because you think that Allah is actually pleased with you for giving you money, for giving you wealth, for giving you a job,
in essence this is a greater trial than for Allah to take it from you.

Read the words of Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam):
"If you see that Allah is giving a person everything that he wishes whilst you see that that same person is committing a 'Ma'siyah' (disobedient act) know that Allah is gradually going to bring him to punishment."

Allah is letting the rope go a little, until Allah cuts it and then Allah seizes it. Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta'aala) says explaining this Sunnah:
'So, when they forgot (the warning) with which they had been reminded, We opened to them the gates of every (pleasant) thing, until in the midst of their enjoyment in that which they were given, all of a sudden, We took them to punishment, and lo! They were plunged into destruction with deep regrets and sorrows."
[Source~ 'Qur'an' Surat Al-An'aam ~6 A #44]

And the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said as reported by Abu Musaa al-Ash'aree (radiyallaahu anhu):
"Verily Allah, will give an oppressor time to keep committing more oppression until Allah seizes him and when Allah seizes him, he never lets him go"
Then Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) recited:
"Such is the Seizure of your Lord when He seizes the (population of) towns while they are doing wrong. Verily, His Seizure is painful, and severe"
[Source~ 'Qur'an' Surat Hud 11~ A#102]

He lets them go until they are in the middle of their enjoyment and then He brings them to punishment. And listen to the Words Of Allah where He describes the people of 'Ghaflah', what are their characteristics, what are their attitudes, what type of people are they ?
"And surely, We have created many of the Jinns and mankind for Hell.
They have hearts wherewith they understand not, they have eyes wherewith they see not, and they have ears wherewith they hear not (the truth). They are like cattle, nay even more astray; those!
They are the (ghafiloon) heedless ones."
[Source~ 'Qur'an' Surat Al-A'raf ~7 A #179]

...And you may ask how can a human being be less than an animal? have you not heard Allah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) where He said:
"See you not that to Allah prostrates whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains, and the trees, and Ad-Dawaab (moving living creatures, beasts, etc.), and many of mankind ? But there are many (men) on whom the punishment is justified. And whomsoever Allah disgraces, none can honor him. Verily! Allah does what He wills.."
[Source~ 'Qur'an' ~ Surat Al-Hajj ~22 ~ A #18]

So Allah is telling you the sun, the moon, the mountains, the trees, the animals and many of mankind are better than those who do not submit to Allah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala). Those who are deserving of punishment, and whoever Allah humiliates none shall give him honor..
Verily! Allah does what He wills. And you may ask yourself: eyes that do not see ? A heart that does not see ?
Allah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) says:
"Verily, it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts which are in
the breasts that grow blind."
[Source~ 'Qur'an' Surat Al-Hajj~ 22 A #46]

The eyes can see but the actual sight that it should be seeing is not understood by the heart ...because the heart is not comprehending the blessing that Allah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) has given us.
The heart is not understanding at-Tawheed,
"Laa ilaaha illaa Allah, Muhammadur-Rasoolul-Laah".
It is not the eyes that grow blind:
"..but it is the hearts which are in the breasts that grow blind..." We ask ourselves: Why are we people who are in a state or condition where we are looking at the Islamic law or the orders of Allah and His Messenger as something light -it is not something important - it is not of much concern ?
Taking lightly the orders of Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala)
Yet at the same time if your boss ordered you to do something which is not in your job description ...
something which you do not have to do you would follow and obey your boss most likely you would obey your boss...!
Yet when Allah orders and forbids and the Messenger orders and forbids you, then you do not obey them ???

"O you who believe! Do not put (yourselves) forward before Allah and His Messenger (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam), and fear Allah.
Verily ! Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
[Source~ 'Qur'an' Surat Al-Hujuraat~ 49~ A #1]

O you who believe! Raise not your voices above the voice of the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam), nor speak aloud to him in talk as you speak aloud to one another, lest your deeds may be rendered fruitless while you perceive not."
[Source~ 'Qur'an' Surat Al-Hujuraat ~49~ A # 2]

Abdullah bin Az-Zubayr (radiyallaahu anhu) said...
"After that,'Umar (R.A.) voice was so low that the Messenger of Allah had to ask him to repeat what he said so that he could understand what he was saying to him.''
Imaam Ibnul-Qayyim (rahimahullaah) said...
"...if the 'Sahabah' were to have their voice louder than the voice of the Prophet (Sallallaahu alayhi wa Sallam) their good deeds could be wiped out what about when a person not just raises his voice but puts his intellect and opinions before the statements and actions of the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) ?"
And this is why Allah {Azza Wa Jall} says:
"It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision.
And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error."
[Source~ 'Qur'an' Surat Al-Ahzaab~ 33~ A # 36]

So we ask again: Why are people taking the orders of Allah and His messenger lightly ? There is one main reason and that is that they have forgotten the purpose of creation. The Muslims have forgotten why they are here. Why they are allowed to walk on the face of the earth by Allah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala)...???
Why they are allowed to breathe, go to work, go to school. And that is the true reason, the true calling of Islam ,
a single 'Ayah' from the Qur'an where... Allah (Subhaanahuwa Ta'aala) says: "And I (Allaah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone)."
[Source~ 'Qur'an' Surat ~Adh-Dhaariyaat ~51~ A # 56]

This is your reason for being on this earth !
it is not to fulfill your lusts or desires or to attain goals that are un islamic, it is to worship Allah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala).
But do not think that this means that you do not need to go to school or work. Allah has not sent this 'Qur'an' to make thing difficult for us.
Allah {Azza Wa Jall} says:
"Taa Haa. We have not sent down the Qur'an unto you (O Muhammad Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) to cause you distress, But only as a Reminder to those who fear (Allah)."
[Source~ 'Qur'an' ~Surat Taa Haa ~20 A #1-2]

Allah has not sent this Qur'an to make things difficult for us.
Islam does not prohibit any individual from attaining wealth and richness you just have to answer two (2)questions:
#1/~Where did you earn your money: Halaal or Haraam? and...
#2/~How did you spend it: Halaal or Haraam? (two simple questions)
Do not think that you have to become a hermit just praying to Allah, reciting Qur'an and just hope for the 'Rizq' to come to you !
Rather your 'Ibadah' is to be a fully functioning person in society while worshiping Allah.
We ask ourselves what is the cure to our heedlessness?
It is to firstly know the reason of your creation. Ask yourself, scrutinize yourself, analyse your life:
Are you living for al-Ibadah or for ad-Dunya?
Secondly, remove yourself from anyone who is bringing you to the state of Al Ghaflah ...eliminate them from your life because you are someone who carries the passport of 'Laa ilaaha illaah Allaah, Muhammadur-Rasoolul-laah' you cannot have stamped on it the visa of disobedience to Allah. Thirdly, you must repent for what you have done of disobedience to Allah ! you can't just walk away from your disobedience and simply just start over by doing nothing .. you have to make 'Tawba', fulfilling the Shurootut Tawba (the conditions of Tawba).
And fourthly, a Hadeeth and that is the advice of the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) to Mu'aadh Ibn Jabal (radiyallaahu anhu) and in turn all of mankind and the jinn: to "Fear Allah wherever you may be"(whether in seclusion or public.) We ask Allah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) to protect us from being 'Al-Ghafiloon' and to make us from His sincere worshiping slaves . [Allaah Humma Aameen]

Jamaat Ameer recalls the historic contribution of Shaheed Muhammad Kamaruzzaman in the Islamic movement

Jamaat Ameer recalls the historic contribution of Shaheed Muhammad Kamaruzzaman in the Islamic movement

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami's Ameer Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has issued the following statement on 11 April 2020 recalling the contribution and sacrifice of Jamaat-e-Islami's former Assistant Secretary General, noted journalist, politician, intellectual and author of Muhammad Kamaruzzaman and also praying to Allah for accepting him as a martyr.

Muhammad Kamaruzzaman was sentenced to death in connection with a political case. Different platforms from home and abroad protested the sentence. United Nations, United States of America, United Kingdom and various other countries and human rights watchdogs also urged the Bangladeshi government to halt his execution process. But refuting and ignoring those calls, he was executed on this day (11 April) of 2015 at 10.30pm.

Muhammad Kamaruzzaman was involved with the Islamic movement since his student life. Along with his political activities, he also made significant contribution as an author, journalist and researcher. He wrote and translated various quality books. His writings and articles will inspire the leaders and activists of the Islamic movement and the countrymen for so many years. Besides, he will be remembered for his dynamic role in establishing democracy, rule of law, justice, human rights and voting rights of the people in this country.

I am remembering him with great honor and respect. I pray to Allah for the acceptance of his martyrdom. May Allah let his family and relatives to follow his ideologies as well. I am urging my fellow countrymen to take part in the Islamic movement, that he has left for us.



The two women's accounts offer a rare firsthand glimpse of life for Muslims caught in China's crackdown. The country's government has publicly portrayed the camps as "vocational education and training centers," but classified Chinese government documents obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists depict them as involuntary indoctrination centers with high watchtowers, constant camera surveillance, harsh punishments and dedicated police bases to prevent escapes.



Unsurprisingly, Israel has not heeded requests to safeguard the health of Palestinian prisoners in its jails. Besides recommending "precautionary measures", which are likely to provide no protection in confined spaces, it seems that Israel will persist with its medical neglect strategies, which have resulted in Palestinian prisoners dying. Yet again, there have not been, and nor are there likely to be, any repercussions from the international community.

The initial appeal by the prisoners has been followed up with a petition launched by the Palestinian Prisoners' Society asking for international intervention. The petition calls for the release of over 1,000 Palestinian prisoners — the most vulnerable or susceptible to illness — given that Israel routinely disregards the health concerns and conditions of the people it puts behind bars.

Two Israeli prison officers have already contracted the coronavirus COVID-19, and a recently released Palestinian prisoner has also tested positive, thus raising concerns about the spread of the virus while Israel, true to its extermination by stealth tactic, does nothing.

Appealing for urgent humanitarian action is unlikely to prompt UN action against Israel. Bureaucratic statements and recommendations have failed to put an end to Israeli practices such as administrative detention — jailing someone indefinitely with neither charge nor trial — and the abuse of minors in prison; the deprivation of rights, including family visits; and both timely and appropriate medical attention.

The fear of medical neglect among prisoners is justified. Since 1967, 222 Palestinian prisoners have died after Israel refused treatment for life-threatening illnesses, including cancer. If Israel deprives Palestinians of treatment for illnesses which are not contagious, how will it act when faced with the possibility of a pandemic spreading which has the potential to wipe out the stalwarts of Palestinian resistance to its military occupation?

The incidence of Covid 19 is for us to ruminate on number of things and wag stronger in all ramifications:

We are supposed to have cleansed ourselves ,as individuals ,from dirt of sins and seek sincere repentance; we ought have learned as a nation to be truly self dependent and gain economic freedom; We ought to have ultimately grown our spiritual uprightness and come to terms with reality of weightlessness and unimportance of this Dunyah and take things much more easily.

Time for Africa leaders to step up their reasoning faculties and try flush away the dirt of Westernization in their brains.

You can't be leaders of the black race and still think precedents should be laid or instructions should be taken from white supremacists all the time even when they see us as good for nothing. Not at this trying time that nobody, except Allah,can tell where we are heading to when we have Covid 19 at the driver seat.

Let their problems be theirs and our problems ours while each look for away to be off the hook.

Nigeria, especially, can't afford to be a sufferer of power play between the self acclaimed super powers. You can't continually place your reliance on these people and think you'll ever be able to liberate us. ever!

Why is Jack Ma not donating to them in Italy and France? Why is Bill Gates not helping America at this time? Why are these people crying more than the bereaved?

Are you, Muhammadu Buhari, and others in your government telling us your beautiful program of tacit indigenization not worthwhile after all? Please know that this is a defining moment for Nigeria particularly and Africa generally, such that if we can wether this storm, we're set to rule the world. Please let's make do of anything local and step up the local contents policy.

I'm appalled that we're taking instructions from World Health Organization exclusively now that her suggestions or recommendation could not stop death incidences in Europe and America.Or is it not this same WHO that is predicting calamities in Africa in the wake of Covid 19 when it is obvious that our government is leaving no stone unturned at making sure this deadly disease is decimated?

This is our opportunity to be great in Africa economically; we need to be careful of any help capable of destroying the future of Africa.

This is not piece at disparaging world unity or promoting unhealthy Nationalism at all as doing this would be against the teaching of Islam. Rather, it is a call to African leaders to protect their subjects against Neocolonialism and self destruction by world leaders who are ready to gain economic dominance at all costs.
