Massive gatherings in major cities . Funeral prayers for Syed Munawar Hasan.
What made him so Important?

by Qaiser Sharif & Others.

KARACHI/LAHORE- June 27: Jamaat-e-Islami former Emir Syed Munawar Hasan was laid to rest in Sakhi Hasan graveyard of Karachi on Saturday.

JI chief Senator Sirajul Haq led the funeral prayer of the former Emir at Eidgah Ground Nazimabad. Thousands of workers of the JI, leaders from different religious and political parties and people from all walks of life attended the funeral prayer.

Syed Munawar was the name of an ideology and his death was a loss not only to Pakistan but entire Muslim world, said Senator Siraj while addressing the gathering. Whether it was the matter of the US invasion of Afghanistan or Indian atrocities in Kashmir, the late JI leader stood firm against the Muslim genocide and led movements in staunch opposition of the so-called world powers without caring for the internal and external pressures, said Senator Siraj. In fect, he added, Syed passed all his life fighting against the imperialistic forces within and outside the country. Syed Munawar's narrative was strong and it was pro-poor and anti-elite, he added.

"The JI struggle revolves around Syed Sahib's narrative. We have been struggling for establishing the system dreamt by our late leader," said Sirajul Haq, emphasizing upon every JI leader and worker to follow the footsteps of Syed Munawar to make Pakistan an Islamic welfare state.

JI Deputy Emir Liaqat Baloch visited the residence of Syed Munawar to offer condolence to the family of late leader. He said Syed Munawar made relentless struggle against the capitalistic and imperialistic forces and secular lobbies during his lifetime. He was the true follower and representative of Syed Maududi's philosophy, Baloch said, adding the death of Syed Munawar was not only a loss to JI but to all religious and political forces working for the betterment of Pakistan.

Meanwhile, JI leader Hafiz Idrees led funeral in absentia of Syed Munawar at Mansoora. A large number of people attended the prayer.

Black Lives Matter a Front for Homosexual Rights
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]

New York City - Recently, in Brooklyn, Black Lives Matter (BLM) held an event promoting transgender rights. It is estimated that there were 60,000 to 70,000 attendees. On this week's Community Cop Show, co-host Michael Greys suggested that we read an organization's Mission Statement or its About Us web page to learn tits objective. Part of BLM's Mission Statement makes it clear that all Black lives, include queer and trans-gendered

"We affirm the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, undocumented folks, folks with records, women, and all Black lives along the gender spectrum. Our network centers those who have been marginalized within Black liberation movements."

In the 1980s, Civil Rights pioneer and Pacifist Bayard Rustin, who was gay, stated that gays would be at the forefront for social change in America, not Black people. Many members of the Black Power Movement, including Imam Jamil Al-Amin (formerly H. Rap Brown), spoke against Rustin's questionable behavior, which included an arrest and 60 day sentence for engaging in public lewdness with two White men in the backseat of a car in Pasadena, California in 1953.

Since 2012, when Black Christian leaders defiantly announced that they did not condone homosexuality and condemned the Obama Administration's 'Gay Agenda,' there has been an increasingly strong effort to encourage it in the African-American community.

According to Community Cop's Michael Greys, George Soros has pledged $33 million dollars to BLM, although his spokeswoman, Laura Silber, denies he has ever done so. However, in 2016, the Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy pledged $100 million to a Black-Led Movement Fund, which includes BLM! And, now an area in gentrified "Do or Die" Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn is now known as Black Lives Matter Way to the chagrin of Black activists, who have campaigned, unsuccessfully, for areas of Brooklyn to be named after true liberators, such as Harriet Tubman.

But here's why this is, according to Community Cop co-host Noel Leader: No economic boycotting. "Civil rights" organizations such as, the National Action Network, the Urban League, The Rainbow Coalition, and the NAACP are all right with the White establishment "as long as you don't mess with their money." The White establishments don't like rallies or marches either but, tolerate them as long as that is the only action taken by these groups. Also, many of these organizations have doomed themselves to failure by focusing on trying to change the oppressors' racist attitudes instead of implementing strategies that will end their oppressive practices. As long as the oppressor is not being held accountable for any wrong-doing, he can afford to ignore these organizations demand that he view everyone as a human being.

This is not the first time "Black" organizations have been used to promote another group's agenda. In 1914, when Columbia University Professor Emeritus Joel Spingarn, a staunch Zionist, became an NAACP board member, he recruited other staunch Zionists to join the board: Rabbi Stephen Weisz (Wise), Jacob Schiff, and Jacob Billikopf.

BLM, with the help of the mainstream media, has been thrust into the limelight as the face of civil disobedience, defiance, unity, and courage. Unfortunately, they appeal to the youth because. No one else is willing to 'Act-Up' just as gay rights activists did in the mid to late 80s to bring attention to the AIDS crisis.

If President Obama, the most "powerful" leader of the New World, could be made to look like a chump by arrogant racist officers then, who else will speak up? Pres. Obama's non-action while Black people were being murdered by White officers, with impunity, opened the door to Black Lives Matter and its gay agenda using the anti-racism platform. Maybe that was the plan all along?

 Apartheid is a Crime

Apartheid is a Crime:
Portraits of the Israeli Occupation of Palestine
is a book by Mats Svensson. Jim Miles reviewed the book; here is what he has to say:

In Apartheid is a Crime, Mats Svensson has created a very accessible clear expression of Israel's occupation of Palestine.

It is composed primarily of photos of the Palestinian situation. Not photos of the wars, the fighting, and the blood, but of the people and their dispossession under martial law. The faces do not show rage and hatred, but range from resigned acceptance, through steadfastness, passive resistance, and on to - somehow - a seeming ironic happiness - ironic in that it is difficult to imagine anyone smiling or laughing under these conditions. When Israeli shoulders are viewed, their faces are impassive, uncaring.

The landscape is presented in three themes. The first shows the abandoned landscapes from the nakba - houses untended and decaying, the native plants, and significantly the native cactus claiming their own space in the ruins. The demolition of homes highlights the daily ongoing military actions, piece by piece, of the slow demolition of the remaining cultural and civil landscape. Finally, the wall looms above all, combined with wide swaths of cleared 'buffer' zones, separating families, farms, businesses, and civic interaction.

Preceded with a foreword by Ramzy Baroud, the photos are accompanied by short text excerpts from many well-known names: Tom Segev, Richard Falk, Nelson Mandela, Edward Said, Moshe Dayan, and Presidents Obama, Carter and Bush. Among them are lesser-known names of Palestinian and Jewish voices, speaking equally as eloquently as the readily recognized names. The general theme of the comments is of apartheid and colonialism, the unfortunate silence of the diplomats, and the daily humiliations and struggles of the people suffering under the apartheid system, a system that always and ever has denied a two-state solution.

The juxtaposition of comments and photos provides a strong message concerning the plight of the Palestinian people. It is concise, not needing a historical background, hitting the reader on an emotional level more than an intellectual level. For those just becoming familiar with the Palestinian problems Apartheid is a Crime is a good starting position; for those already cognizant of the situation and many of its political/legal backgrounds, Apartheid is a Crime presents a visually emotive reminder with concise quotes and references reinforcing longer discourses.




Second Libya Conference. General Hifter behavlng like Gaddafi.
Atrocities and Massive Human Rights Violations.

On June 23 Dr. Kaukab Siddique was invited to an international conference on Libya [held by zoom]:

The moderator was Sis. Anwaar Omeish [wearing hijab]. She translated Arabic into English and English comments into Arabic.

The two main speakers called from Libya. The main speaker who is active in the field of human rights is Ahmad El-Gasir. The second speaker trying to help migrants in Libya is Tariki Jamloum.

Some of the translation was also done by Mongo Dhauadi.

Ahmad El-Gasir was specific and listed the crimes which have been uncovered wth the two hundred mile retreat of General Hifter with his forces constituted from UAE, Russia and mercenaries from Sudan and Chad.

The retreat was caused by Syrian fighters and Turkish jets which had come in to help the legally constituted government in Tripoli.

Al-Gasir noted the slaughter of civilians by General Hifter's forces.

Hospitals and schools were targeted as were water resources and food supplies and markets. Hifter had also captured the major oil resources [which are still in his hands] denying resources to the legal government.

The most harrowing part of El-Gasir's report was about the discovery of mass graves in Tahura which Hifter made into his stronghold after slaughtering large numbers of people.

The second main speaker, Tariki Jamloum, focused on the fate of migrants who are stuck in Libya. Of these at least 220 are women. There are scores of children who have been separated from their parents.

Mines laid by the retreating army have caused 104 casualties because civilians cannot spot the mines. UNICEF has stated that it has funds for the migrants but these substantial funds have not reached Libya.

Jamloum pointed out the tragedy of migrants who manage to reach Europe but are sent back by European authorities.

Gangs are also at work. There are cases of families who reached Germany but were abducted by gangsters.

A third speaker could not join the conference from Libya because the town where he was supervising mine removal lost its electricity.

Comments by Dr. Kaukab Siddique [comments created for this publication - they were not part of the conference]:

  1. The situation in Libya is linked to the future of the Muslim world, second only to Palestine, Syria and Kashmir.

  2. UAE and Sissi are involved in and responsible for the crimes committed by Hifter.

  3. The slaughter of civilians is like the behavior of Gaddafi who would execute anyone he considered a dissident.

  4. Turkey and Syrian fighters have played a key role in the defeat of Hifter but Russia and Egypt's Sissi are trying to save Hifter. USA might also intervene if the Russuan influence increases.

  5. The Islamic State is reviving in the southeastern desert. Turkey does not like IS and might try to crush it which would weaken Turkey's Islamic influence.

*Food for Thought~Not for Stomachs* {!}
Abû Al-Dardâ'~ [Allâh be pleased with him] ~used to say...
"Learn knowledge before it is taken away, and it is taken away by its people [scholars] being taken away... !
The scholar and the student are partners in good and there is no good in any other people. The richest of men is the knowledgeable man whose knowledge is needed ...! the benefits those who need him and if done without he benefits himself with the knowledge that Allâh [Azza wa Jall ]has placed with him...{!} So how is it I see your scholars dying yet, the ignorant among you not learning...?
I fear that the predecessor will depart and the successor will not learn.
If the scholar studies... he only increases in knowledge...!
and he does not take anything away from knowledge.
And if the ignorant studies... he will find knowledge firm and established So how is it that I see you full up with food..yet starved of knowledge?
[Source Ibn 'Abd Al-BarrJâmi' Bayân Al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi Vol. 2 pg 233]

Allâh {Azza Wa Jall} will say...
'What number of years did you stay on earth'?
They will say... 'We stayed a day or part of a day,
Ask of those who keep account.'
Allâh will say...
'You stayed not but a little, if you had only known. Did you think that We had created you in play (without any purpose), and that you would not be brought back to Us' ?

Hadith of the Week

Look beyond the surface if you want to see those truly in need - they will not ask for help.
Believers are required to be good stewards of the resources Allah has given us, so before giving sadaqa, ask Allah for eyes to see the ones who struggle in silence instead of the ones who ask with ease.

Hadith: Narrated by Abu Huraira, r.a.:
The Prophet said, "The poor person is not the one for whom a date or two or a morsel or two of food is sufficient but the poor person is he who does not beg or ask the people for something or show his poverty at all. Recite if you wish, (Allah's Statement): "They do not beg of people at all."

Asalamu alaikum,
Make Du'a for Others in Private
When you make du'a for someone in private, Allah sends an angel to you whom replies "Ameen and same to you."

*If you help someone, Allah helps you.*

Supplicating for someone is a beautiful way to aid your fellow brothers and sisters.

Make dua for your family and for the members of your community!

O Allah, save humanity from being its own enemy. Protect Your creation from oppression. Save the ummah from internal and external oppressors and grant them justice.

Protect us all from violence, fear, illness and danger.

You are our Protector.

 Taking it to the Streets

Protest in Catonsville, Maryland
After work today, I went to a very interesting Black Lives Matter protest. It was at Catonsville High School, and organized entirely by youth. High schoolers were marching and protesting, some with the support of their parents. One of the lead organizers was a little Bangladeshi girl, named Nusrat. She didn't wear hijab, but identified herself as a Muslim from the podium.

China's hidden partner in suppressing the Muslim Uighurs - the US

It's been revealed that Trump encouraged the mass internment of Uighurs. But the US complicity goes back to 9/11.

Last week, President Trump signed the Uyghur Human Rights Protection Act, the first US legislation to focus on the role of the US in protecting the rights of Uighurs and other indigenous Muslims inside China. On the same day, former national security adviser John Bolton revealed in an excerpt from his book that Trump had allegedly told the Chinese leader, Xi Jinping, perhaps as early as 2017 and again in 2019, that he agreed with his policy of placing Muslims in mass internment camps.

While contradictory messaging is not new to the Trump administration, these particular mixed messages about Uighurs have a longer history which belies the role that the US has played in stoking the flames of Islamophobia in China.
