Rebuttal of the Attacks on Abu Huraira (r.a)
Did 'Umar ibn al-Khattab, r.a., stop Abu Huraira, r.a. from Narrating Hadith

by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

For Shias, it should have been very difficult to attack Abu Huraira, r.a., because he loved the family of the Prophet, pbuh, and narrated beautiful Hadith about the grandsons of the Prophet, pbuh. Shia scholars should know that Ali, r.a., Hasan, r.a., and Hussain, r.a., did not speak against Abu Huraira, r.a. There are a few Shia fabrications to this effect but they are from later times and cannot be traced back to the three greats of Shia'ism.

However, the Shias work by way of "guilt by association." They try to make the claim that Ameer Muawiyya and Yazeed were identical in their behavior. For them, connection with Ameer Muawiyya and Yazeed is equally bad, and because Abu Huraira, r.a., cooperated with Ameer Muawiyya they condemn him.

The Shias forget that Imam Hasan, r.a., made peace with Ameer Muawiyya, and he and Imam Hussain both received respect and copious gifts from Ameer Muawiyya. Ameer Muawiyya was KATIBE WAHI [writer of the revelation, the Qur'an] and was accepted by the Prophet, pbuh. During his rule, there was general consensus and peace within the Muslim domain, and as a result Jihad of great significance was carried out against the oppressive empires in the West.

The attacks of the sect known as munkareene Hadith [deniers of Hadith] on Abu Huraira, r.a., are much more dishonest than those of the Shia. These sectarians, following the line of Jewish abusers of Hadith, like Goldziher and Schacht, resort to outright intellectual dishonesty. For instance, G.A. Pervez wrote:

"Once Abu Salama asked hazrat Abu Huraira, who is well known for being prolific in Hadith narration, did you narrate Hadith this way in the time of Hazrat 'Umar? He replied, if I had done so in his time, he would have beaten me." [Maqame Hadith, in Urdu language, p.52]

G.A. Pervez gives a reference for this supposed narration but it is not from a primary book of Hadith but from a secondary scholar named Tahir bin Salih al-Jazairi.

Thus Pervez, whose entire book is aimed at proving that Hadith is not to be trusted, tries to use a supposed Hadith narration to oppose Abu Huraira, r.a., and then does not give a primary source. In fact, Pervez's study of Hadith was very poor and he had collected a whole series of quotes from various secondary writers, taken out of context, to attack Hadith.

Let's see what the original texts on which Islam and Islamic history are based, say about the relations between Umar, 'ra., and Abu Huraira, r.a., regarding Hadith :

The context of the personality of 'Umar ibn al-Khattab is that he was very strict with HIMSELF and with ALL the companions of the Prophet, pbuh. But when he would hear Abu Huraira, r.a., reciting Hadith, 'Umar, r.a., would take back his own opinion. There is NO evidence that he wanted to stop Abu Huraira, r.a., from narrating Hadith. Quite the contrary. Here are specific instances:

"A woman who blew on knots (a form of witchcraft) was brought to 'Umar, r.a. He asked the people (assembled): Have any of you heard anything from the messenger of Allah, pbuh, regarding blowing on knots. Abu Huraira, r.a., got up and said: O Commander of the Faithful! I have heard. 'Umar, r.a., asked: What have you heard? Abu Huraira replied: He (the Prophet, pbuh) said: O women who blow on knots, do not do so and and do not ask anyone to blow on knots. 'Umar, r.a., accepted Abu Huraira's words [in front of the entire assembly].

[Sahih Bukhari, vol.2. Urdu translation]

"Once 'Umar, r.a., took Abu Huraira, r.a., with him from Madinah to Makka for Hajj. On the way, a storm started blowing. 'Umar, r.a., asked his Companions, does anyone remember anything from the messenger of Allah regarding a strong breeze.? No one answered. Abu Huraira, r.a., who was trailing behind the caravan learned of the question 'Umar was asking. He put his mount to the gallop, reached 'Umar, and said: I learned of the question you were asking. I heard the messenger of Allah, pbuh, say, the wind is a sign of Allah's mercy."

[Musnad of Ahmad ibn Hanbal. vol. 14]

"Hissan ibn Thabit, r.a., was reciting poetry in the mosque. 'Umar, r.a., passed by and forbade Hissan, r.a., from reciting poetry in the mosque. Hissan replied: I used to recite poetry in the mosque when one better than you [the Prophet, pbuh] used to be there. Then he turned to Abu Huraira, r.a., and asked him: O Abu Huraira, I ask you in Allah's name, didn't you hear the messenger of Allah, pbuh, say about me: "(O Hissan) answer the unbelievers from my side (in poetry). O Allah support him (Hissan) with the sacred spirit." Abu Huraira, r.a. replied: "Yes, I did hear him. (say that)." [Sahih Muslim, vol. 2]

In each case, Abu Huraira's words were accepted by 'Umar, r.a.

There is NO EVIDENCE that 'Umar, r.a., or any other Companion of the Prophet, pbuh, stopped or tried to stop Abu Huraira, r.a., from narrating Hadith. Ayesha, r.a., corrected two of his narrations but did not stop him and did not make any general comment against his narration of Hadith. In fact he used to sit outside her door and narrate Hadith, so that in case he was wrong, she could correct him.

It's possible that in later times Abu Huraira, r.a., might have quipped that if 'Umar, r.a., had heard me reciting so many Hadith, he would have hit me. Abu Huraira, r.a., was very humble and would often say things against himself. He even told of the time when he was an employee of the woman who later became his wife, and he said, she used to push him like a servant, and he said jokingly, after she became his wife, I'll now make her work for me!

Once during Muawiyya's Caliphate, Abu Huraira, r.a., sneezed and then made fun of himself, what a time of wealth has come that the poor man who used to pass out from starvation in front of 'Ayesha's home (he himself) cleans his nose in a fancy kerchief. [Sahih Bukhari]

In any case, NO COMPANION of the Prophet, pbuh, EVER claimed that Abu Huraira, r.a., was narrating too many Hadith.



Conviction of Nawaz Sharif was Illegal.

Sharif's daughter Maryam got hold of videos which indicated that the judge who convcted the Muslim League leader was pressured. What other tactic will Imran Khan use to keep his main opponent out of the picture? [Maryam herself was arrested by Imran, a shameful thing to do in a Muslim country.]

Top News Director, Shakil ur Rahman, was arrested in Imran's Khan's revenge drive. Thirty years back news conglomerate leader Shakil ur Rahman acquired expensive property for which he paid more money than he had. His news giant known as Jung has been critical of the Imran Khan government and he was a friend of Nawaz Sharif. A couple of months back suddenly he was arrested. Now he has been refused bail. Imran Khan is shutting down anyone who supported his rival.

Imran Khan is out to oppose Pakistan's Islamic aspirations. A Hindu temple is to be constructed in Islamabad while a small mosque also in Islamabad alleged to be on government land has been quickly demolished.

The Red Mosque also in Islamabad is under government and secularist pressure because Maulana Abdul Aziz has been outspoken. Sikhs pilgrims are coming into Pakistan in large numbers.

Imran Khan is not taking any steps against India despite India's large scale atrocities in Kashmir. He has also ignored the Muslims of East Pakistan, now called Bangladesh, one of the largest Muslim populations in the world. India destroyed Babri masjid. Imran Khan is silent.

Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi, a Sunni firebrand, has said that we should take care of Hindu temples already existing in Pakistan. However there is no scope in Islam, he said, for building a new Hindu temple in an Islamic land. Speaking in Punjabi, Maulana Rizvi quoted in detail from Qur'an, hadith, the poetry of Iqbal and Rumi, as he blasted the plan for a new Hindu temple. It is the negation of the very basis of Pakistan, he said.

[New Trend's impression is that Imran Khan is trying to please the
western powers. He speaks marginally about Islam to keep Pakistani Islamic groups divided. The army supports him and is dedicated to Amercan plans for the region. Not even one army "martyr" has fallen on the extensive borders with India.]

Battles raging in 4 Areas. US Coordination with Shia Regime.

The Baghdad regime is carrying out land and air operations against Islamic State fighters just outside Baghdad and in Babel, Kirkuk and Diyala, {July8, according to the regime's defense minisry spokeman]. It seems to be a failure as only 4 "terrorists" have been captured.

On July 9, US Central Command General Mackenzie visited regime PM Kadhimi to coordnate operations against IS.

Thirteen countries are sending "advisers" to help the US and the thegime fight IS, according ro Centcom.

5,200 US troops are staying in Iraq.

Earlier, Hisham al-Hashimi, a famous researcher on militant groups who was helping the regime was shot dead by unknown gunmen.

Battles in Several Areas. Russian air strikes. US air strike?

July 11. A battle has been raging in the town of Sukhneh, eastern Homs province between Islamic State fighters and Assad's army units. The Russian air force bombed ISIS after Assad's troops suffered heavy losses.

July 8 to 11. Mujahideen and Assad's forces exchanged heavy machine gun fire in south Idlib and northwest Hama provinces on daily basis.

In a battle on southeast Idlib border, Turkish supported Syrians shot down a Russian reconnaisance drone.

Heavy fighting is reported in eastern Latakia province where Mujahideen are trying to advance into Assad's Alawite heartland.

An air strike suspected to be US killed 35 militia brought by Iran into the Abu Kamal area near the Iraqi border.

In the countyside west of Tal Abyad, north central Syria, Syrian fighters supporting Turkey shelled military positions of Assad troops and SDF which are in the area.

Mysterious Air Strike.

There is much speculation about the July 4 air strike on al-Wattiyal miltary air base 140 km southwest of Tripoli. Turkish intallations at the base were damaged. French jets from an air base in Chad are suspcted. Also there is speculation that the attack was carried out by UAE which with Egypt, Russia and Saudi Arabia has been helping General Hifter whose forces were put to flight by Syian fighters brought by Turkey.

Tunisia is worried that ISIS fighters are among the Syrians and are entering Tunisia.

Burkina Faso
Massacre. 180 Executed for Supporting Islamic Goups.

Human Rights Watch [HRW] reported on July 9 that execution style killings most probably by the government have been carried out in the Djibo area in northern Burkina Faso. THe victims are civilians who were suspected of leaning towards Jihad groups in nearby Mali.

The government is trying to be ambiguus but HRW is sure that this was systematic extra judicial killing most probably by the regime linked to the wetern powers.

Why do Muslims Differ with Each Other?

 Muslims Differ

Why do Muslims Differ with Each Other?
by Kaukab Siddique
Text: "O ye who believe! obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination." [The Qur'an 4:59]

  1. Many Muslims differ with other Muslims because they don't know that ALL schools of Islamic Thought accept the Qur'an and the authentic hadith.

  2. Schools of Thought emerged after all the sahaba, r.a., passed away. These are INTERPRETATIONS of Qur'an and hadith known as fiqh.

  3. The Hanafi, Maliki, Shafii, Hanbali schools of thought differ in matters of interpretation. They don't say that the others are unbelievers or that you should not pray with them.

  4. Schools of Thought are different from sects. Allah does not accept sects which try to create a new version of Islam based on a cult or a leader or a companion of the prophet, pbuh

  5. Scholars who came later are also interpreters. They too accept Qur'an and Hadith. Some very prominent names are Ibn Taymiyyah, Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab, Shah Waliullah, Maudoodi, Syed Qutb and the jihad leaders.

  6. When someone becomes a Muslim, we do not have the right to talk about the unIslamic activities they carried on before accepting Islam. Faith wipes out all previous sins.

  7. There are many people in the power structure, like Pharoah, whose "hearts" Allah has sealed. They should be challenged and confronted.

  8. There are others who are against us because they are misinformed about Islam. Or they hurt us owing to their professional duties and jobs. As teachers of Islam, we must try to understand WHY someone opposes us.

  9. Khalid ibn al-Waleed opposed Islam. He even killed Muslims at the battle of Ohud. The Prophet, pbuh, understood that Khalid was not an enemy of Islam but only an opponent as a good soldier.

  10. Khalid, r.a. not only embraced Islam but became the SWORD of Allah [Saifullah].

  11. Forgiveness can change people if we forgive them AFTER defeating them. Thus the Prophet, pbuh, forgave Abu Sufian. He was skeptical for a while even after becoming Muslim but once he understood, he not only stood up for Islam but took his family with him. He was seriously wounded fighting for Islam but never wavered. His daughter was with him and gave her life [shaheed] for Islam at Yarmouk.

  12. Shi'ite sectarians abuse Muawiyya, r.a., but he was not only trusted by the prophet, pbuh, after he changed but he wrote revelation [wahi] for the prophet, pbuh.

  13. During the caliphate of Usman, r.a., the compiler of the Qur'an, Muawiyyah, r.a., was in command of the Islamic fleet which destroyed the combined naval fleets of Europe. His wife was with him in the battle as was Umm Hurum, r.a., whom the Prophet, pbuh, had blessed.

  14. Imam Ghazzali has written that we should not denigrate people who are in the last line of prayer because they might be in the first line by the time they die. Similarly those who are in the first line should not be too proud because they might be in the last row by the time they die.

  15. This is a principle of da'wa. Look for the potential for good in each person.

Famine deadlier than Coronavirus


Economic fallout from the coronavirus could push tens of millions of people into deeper poverty and hunger. Across parts of Africa and Asia, starvation could be deadlier than the disease itself.
- with thanks to Roman, Texas

Recessions caused by the coronavirus pandemic are leaving people hungry and raising the specter of famines this year. Unless the world acts immediately, a UN report published this week says, it could spell a global food emergency of a "severity and scale unseen for more than half a century."

Although there is enough food to feed the world, not everybody can afford to buy it. In regions like East Africa — already fighting off locust swarms and weather extremes — widespread job losses could spiral into famine, said Maximo Torero, chief economist at the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization. "It's a terrible problem of food access."

Lockdowns at the start of the pandemic sent shock waves through the global food system, resulting in millions of tons of crops left to rot in fields as countries closed borders and farmers stayed home. While global food supplies are now stable, supply chains in some countries have still not recovered.

The World Food Program estimated in April that world hunger will double this year, bringing the total to 265 million people — more than 3 in every 100 humans on the planet. Most of those suffering from acute food insecurity live in countries reeling from conflict, climate change and economic crises. In total, 821 million people are going hungry in some form.

The global food system was fragile even before the pandemic. Just nine plant species account for more than two-thirds of global crop output and they are increasingly threatened by soil erosion, rising temperatures, extreme weather and disease. The ten countries with the worst food crises last year —Yemen, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Syria, Sudan, Nigeria and Haiti — all struggle with conflict and political unrest.

Like climate change, the pandemic makes a "perilous situation worse" by multiplying other threats, said Asaf Tzachor, a food security expert at Cambridge University's Center for the Study of Existential Risks. In several countries, "these converging crises may cripple food systems."

In most of Africa, people are more likely to die from starvation caused by the economic fallout from the pandemic than from the disease itself, according to the International Fund for Agricultural Development. More than half of Africans are smallholder farmers and agriculture is a central pillar of economies across the continent.

In East Africa, where desert locusts have ravaged land and razed crops, farmers have endured a succession of shocks that leave them less able to cope.

The FAO says that 13 million people in countries like Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Djibouti and Eritrea have either run out of food altogether or go a full day at a time without eating.

International students must leave the U.S. or be denied entrance into the U.S. if they are taking online classes this semester.
by Sis. Kristi

Due to the Coronavirus, many colleges and universities have announced plans to hold many classes online. This week, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced that all foreign students enrolled in one of these institutions will be denied Visa.

Students already in the U.S. will not be allowed to stay, they will be deported. For students who plan on traveling to attend class this semester, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection will not allow them to enter the United States.
Several universities, including Harvard and M.I.T. have sued the Trump Administration seeking to block this directive. "The order came down without notice—its cruelty surpassed only by its recklessness." Harvard University President Larry Bacow said.

Aside from the ethical absurdity of this ICE directive, it will result in billions of dollars in lost revenue for the universities. More than one million foreign students come to the U.S. for higher education and contribute $41 billion to college and university budgets in a single acedemic year.
What could ICE and the Administration be thinking? What is the true purpose of this directive? Colleges and Universities are already fumbling around trying to decide how to manage this upcoming acedemic year - maintaining enrollment, compliance with CDC guidelines, keeping students and faculty safe from the risks of Covid-19, budgeting, financing new teaching environments - all while trying to not compromise their students ability to learn. And now this. As if things weren't hard enough, Only a few weeks before classes are scheduled to begin, the lives of foreign students are further interupted and put in limbo.

Invitation to Think


Dangers of Coronavirus Aerosols are underestimated.

239 researchers called for an update of the coronavirus guidelines by the WHO, as transmission via ultrafine suspended matter in the air was not sufficiently taken into account. Now the WHO also sees the danger.

Aerosols are the smallest suspended particles and droplets in the air, which are smaller than five micrometers. When breathing out, speaking, laughing or singing, this fine mist spreads throughout the room. The larger droplets quickly fall to the ground, but the finest particles can remain suspended in the air for hours - especially in closed rooms.

If an infected person stays in such a closed room, he can infect many others in a very short time - without ever having direct contact with them.

In response to the public appeal, the World Health Organization is now also ready to change course. Until now, the WHO had mainly assumed droplet infection was the main culprit of the disease's spread.

The WHO now also recognizes "emerging evidence" for the airborne spread of the novel coronavirus, said Maria Van Kerkhove, technical manager for the COVID-19 pandemic at the WHO, in a press briefing.

On the basis of the new assessment, the next step would be to adapt the WHO corona guidelines accordingly. A month ago, the WHO had already had to revise its assessment of protective masks.

The current protective measures - washing hands, wearing a mask, keeping your distance - are primarily aimed at a possible droplet and smear infection. But these alone are not enough. The researchers argue that there has been insufficient evidence of aerosol transmission to date.

Regular airing helps

Therefore, the authors of the appeal call for regular and effective room ventilation with fresh air from outside. Air circulation indoors, such as using fans or air conditioning, should be avoided - especially in public buildings, schools, workplaces, hospitals, and retirement homes. Existing ventilation systems should be expanded to include extraction and air filtration systems and/or germicidal, ultraviolet light.

Above all, overcrowded rooms and crowds of people in closed rooms should be avoided, not only in bars or clubs, but also in public buildings and transport.

Indicators show need for reassessment
A sudden increase of corona cases after bar or restaurant visits, as well as after choir performances, show that the infections were probably transmitted by aerosols in the indoor air
, according to Prof. Dr. Clemens Wendtner, head physician of the Infectiology and Tropical Medicine Department of the Munich Schwabing Clinic, who was not involved in the appeal.

It is also possible that the ventilation systems that "repeatedly circulated, unfiltered cold air" in slaughterhouses led to the frequent occurrence of corona infections, according to Wendtner. The physician considers the ventilation measures proposed in the appeal to be sensible and had suggested a change of course from the WHO.

At the beginning of the pandemic, transmission via surfaces was "probably somewhat overestimated," according to Dr. Isabella Eckerle, Professor of Infectious Diseases at the University of Geneva, who was not involved in the appeal.

On the other hand, the transmission via indoor air due to the proximity to sick people (family celebrations, choir rehearsal, and fitness studios, etc) has been somewhat underestimated. "I think the previous very strict distinction between either aerosol or droplet infection is not sufficient to cover all transmission scenarios."

Hadith of the Week

Narrated by Abu Said Al Khudri, r.a.:

Allah's Apostle said, "On the Day of Resurrection Death will be brought forward in the shape of a black and white ram.

Then a call maker will call, 'O people of Paradise!' Thereupon they will stretch their necks and look carefully.

The caller will say, 'Do you know this?'

They will say, 'Yes, this is Death.' By then all of them will have seen it. Then it will be announced again, 'O people of Hell !' They will stretch their necks and look carefully. The caller will say, 'Do you know this?' They will say, 'Yes, this is Death.' And by then all of them will have seen it.

Then it (that ram) will be slaughtered and the caller will say, 'O people of Paradise! Eternity for you and no death. O people of Hell! Eternity for you and no death.' " Then the Prophet (pbuh) recited:

"And warn them of the Day of distress when the case has been decided, while (now) they are in a state of carelessness (i.e. the people of the world) and they do not believe." (19.39)

 Isanbul Mosque

The world-famous Hagia Sophia museum in Istanbul - originally founded as a cathedral - has been turned back into a mosque.

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the decision after a court annulled the site's museum status.

Built 1,500 years ago as an Orthodox Christian cathedral, Hagia Sophia was converted into a mosque after the Ottoman conquest in 1453.

In 1934 it became a museum and is now a Unesco World Heritage site.

Islamists in Turkey long called for it to be converted to a mosque but secular opposition members opposed the move. The proposal prompted criticism from religious and political leaders worldwide.

Defending the decision, President Erdogan stressed that the country had exercised its sovereign right in converting it back to a mosque.

He told a press conference the first Muslim prayers would be held inside the building on 24 July.

Trump administration sanction Chinese officials over human rights abuses against Uyghur Muslims

"The United States will not stand idly by as the CCP carries out human rights abuses targeting Uyghurs, ethnic Kazakhs and members of other minority groups in Xinjiang, to include forced labor, arbitrary mass detention and forced population control, and attempts to erase their culture and Muslim faith," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement announcing sanctions from the State Department.

The sanctions are aimed at three senior officials in Xinjiang, and it makes them and their family members ineligible for entry into the U.S. Pompeo said additional visa restrictions were being placed on other officials believed to be involved or responsible for abuses against minorities.

The Chinese government is believed to have detained more than a million ethnic Turkic minorities. They are held in internment camps and subjected to forced labor, forced abortion, sterilization and other abuse.

China initially denied the existence of the camps but has since said they are training facilities aimed at countering Muslim extremism and separatism.
