What will America do now?
Self-deception and Narcissism or Guidance?

By Kaukab Siddique, PhD

The elections of Nov. 3 are just about over although related issues about the victory of Biden and the defeat of Trump will continue for a few months.

Let's begin with the premise that this is the best country in the world so that no one can taunt us to go back where we came from!

Let's begin with the most urgent issues in the last year or two.

Black lives matter. Yes, and after the murder of Floyd, protests proliferated across America, from coast to coast. However nothing was solved. The police officer and his buddies have been released on bail. No police officer has ever been given the death sentence for killing unarmed Black people. So do Black lives matter?

Then we have Covid 19. More than 221,000 Americans have died. Trump had no solution, nor does Biden. The virus is surging, not dying down.

The issue of Mexicans and immigrants has not been solved. Immense mistreatment continues, including the separation of children from their mothers.

Muslims are by and large barred from entry although they love Jesus, pbuh, and have more in common with Christians than anyone else and have a miniscule crime rate. By contrast America has close relations with dictators, kings and oppressors who have Muslim names.

America is reputedly in a control relationship with Israel. It is truly astounding that Israel was not discussed in any of the election debates and media prograns.

Africa was not discussed during the entire election process, a slap in the face for the Black community whose leaders behaved as if it did not happen.

A tremendous moral decline has come about during the last 50 years. Now it has reached its deepest level with the normalization of LGBTQ.

The elections did bring out a central aspect of America. It is a country divided almost in half. Millions voted for both sides though Trump was attacked on a daily basis as a racist and even as a sexual animal. Intense hate was generated by both sides. Trump was seen as a Russian agent and towards the end as a Chinese agent !

I urge Muslims to stay out of this hot mess. They are a tiny minority but they insist on behaving as if they matter. Steadily they have become like America. We have Asiatic, Arab, Black and White mosques but very few indeed which would dare to give the pure message of Islam.

Most Muslims are lured into or linked to groups which satisfy the needs of the power structure. Some have fallen so far down that they serve in the armies which have invaded Muslim lands.

The only hope for America is that we still have the complete, unabridged Qur'an and the authentic hadith (though the supporters of the power structures tried to suppress the hadith, and now with Biden are trying to use it!).
Muslims should follow the example of the Prophet, pbuh, and attack the false gods of pagan America (with the exception of the few good Christians and Jews who have survived).

Be aware of the influx of the worshippers of many gods from India who cleverly hide their hostility towards Islam.

In recent days, Muslims have shown in mass rallies against France that they honor the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh. America's Muslims can easily gain majority viewpoint by linking up with the mass rallies going on globally.

NATO's retreat from Afghanistan and the resistance in Syria against Assad has shown that Islam is resurgent. Many thanks go to Erdogan, the leader of Turkey.

Jamaat e-Islami Notes Failure of Imran Khan Regime. Calls for Change.
by Qaiser Sharif

LAHORE- November 7: Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Senator Sirajul Haq has said that PTI is the continuation of previous regimes of the PML-N, the PPP and Parvez Musharraf, having no clear agenda to bring the country out of prevailing economic crisis.

In a statement issued from here on Saturday, he criticized the government for doing nothing for the betterment of the masses in half of its tenure.

The PTI, he said, during last two and half year proved itself incapable, destroying the already fragile economy and damaging every institution. Even the supporter and voters of the ruling party, he said, were repenting on their decision to support the PTI in general election of 2018. The inflation and unemployment, he said, made the life of common man miserable as millions of educated youth were worried about their future fining no jobs in the market. A tainted and politically motivated accountability drive, he said, turned the National Accountability Bureau a laughing stock and proving all claims of the prime minister regarding introducing a powerful across the board accountability regime a pack of lies.

The time, said Senator Siraj, had reached to get rid of the forces of the status quo and agent of the western and secular powers. The JI, he said, had launched the anti-government campaign with a clear pro-public agenda. An interest free economy and a system based on the Islamic principles, he said, were the only way forward to put the country on the path of development. The JI movement which started on November 1, he said, would not end until the achievement of its goal. The next mass rally, he said, was scheduled to be held in Bunair on Sunday (November 8) with a clear message for the rulers that either to provide relief to the masses or go home.

Pakistan's Shame

Pakistan sent a plane-load of medical aid to the Syrian capital Damascus on Sunday, making it the largest shipment the country has received since the outbreak of the coronavirus crisis.

The aid arrived at Damascus International Airport and included medicines and medical equipment and supplies. The shipment was accompanied by a number of Pakistani officials who were received by Mikdad. The official thanked the leadership and people of Pakistan for supporting Syria not only during a difficult health crisis but in joint action against terrorism, the agency reported.

Current official statistics place the number of confirmed coronavirus cases at almost 6,000 with just over 300 reported deaths.

Pakistani Ambassador to Damascus, Saeed Mohammed Khan, said that his country had agreed to send medical aid weighing 25 tonnes to help Syria's health sector confront the pandemic. He noted that the aid includes personal protection materials and will be distributed to hospitals and the concerned authorities operating under the Ministry of Health.

Deputy Minister of Health, Ahmad Khleifawi, also stressed the importance of this aid to support Syria's health sector which had suffered throughout the years of war and continues to be affected by foreign imposed sanctions that prevent the arrival of many medical materials and equipment.

Despite efforts by some nations to isolate Syria diplomatically and pressure Pakistan to take a stance against Damascus, Islamabad has maintained relations with the Syrian Arab Republic and several citizens work and live there. Last month, Pakistani and Syrian officials in Islamabad reportedly considered launching direct flights between the two countries.

Afghanistan violence: Former TV presenter Yama Siawash killed

A well-known former television presenter has been killed in a blast in Afghanistan that officials have blamed on militants linked to the Taliban.

Yama Siawash was an anchor on the private TV channel Tolo News and had recently started work at the country's central bank.

He and two others were killed when a bomb attached to his car exploded near his home in the capital Kabul.

No group has officially claimed the attack.

But the interior ministry has reportedly blamed the Haqqani militant group, which is linked to the Taliban and is classed as a terrorist organisation by the US.
President Ashraf Ghani has reportedly ordered an investigation into the killings.

France, Denmark, USA!
Reality behind the Freedom of Expression Story.

by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]

New York City - I imagine that the reason why the Danish and the French are disrespecting the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is because of the influx of Muslims from foreign lands arriving there plus, the growing number of Muslim converts. These kuffar only know how to engage in unfair fights. Insha'allah, their antics will continue to backfire on them!

The unbelievers hide behind the First Amendment and other rights to free speech laws to:

These unbelieving zealots will argue why it is absolutely necessary to promote immoral sex to children and trivialize the Word of Allah - the Creator. However, they have retaliated against people whose opinions differ from theirs by jailing them on trumped up charges or trying to ruin their livelihood.

What the Right to Free Speech does not cover:

These are some of the obvious disparities in how free speech laws have been applied, especially in America. These free speech laws were intended for the unbelievers to use in their continued effort to misinform and mislead others.

As Muslims, we must continue to voice our concerns and anger over the attack on Islam all over the world. The unbelievers are friends and protectors of each other, (8:73), until we unite against them (8:65).

Dear Shias

 Dear Shias

When will Sectarians understand their irrelevance?
by Kaukab Siddique

Dear Shias, you have been doing serious damage to the shia cause by slander and fabrications. You do not know that the book you use written by Tijani is packed with falsehood from its title all the way through.

At a time when the Muslim world is under attack by France, China, Israel , Iran and India, you are still continuing your irrational activity.

I am giving you fair warning. Apologize and stop your activities right away. Otherwise I will answer you in detail, point by point, even though it might take months, because you have spread too much filth and fabrications.

You have been attacking the Muslims for a long time. No one answers you, so you become bolder and publish slanders against the sahaba and the wives of the Prophet, pbuh, who according the Quran are ahlul bayt. (Sura Ahzab)

You even attack Imam Abu Hanifa although he was kind to your sect, as if he was the student of your imams! You should be ashamed of yourself.

So apologize right away. Tijani has misled you, so I want to forgive you owing to your innocence and ignorance.

Hadith of the Week

Narrated by
Anas bin Malik, r.a.:

Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) offered the Fajr prayer when it was still dark, then he rode and said, 'Allah Akbar! Khaibar is ruined. When we approach near to a nation, the most unfortunate is the morning of those who have been warned."

The people came out into the streets saying,

"Muhammad and his army." Allah's Apostle vanquished them by force and their warriors were killed; the children and women were taken as captives. Safiya was taken by Dihya Al-Kalbi and later she belonged to Allah's Apostle go who married her and her Mahr was her manumission.

 Islamic Thought

As-slamu alaikum,
Allah will never disappoint the sincere caller. Even when you think he hasn't answered you, He plans in your favor.
Allah (swt) said:

"وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِي عَنِّي فَإِنِّي قَرِيبٌ أُجِيبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ  إِذَا دَعَانِي فَلْيَسْžَجِيبُوا لِي وَلْيُؤْ¥ِنُوا بِي لَعَلَّه¥مْ يَرْشُدُ¨نَ"
"And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me - indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided."
[Quran, 2:186]

May Allah grant us pure sincere hearts, that do everything for the sake of Allah and not to please people. Ameen.


Israel's largest demolition in years carried out in occupied West Bank.

The Humanitarian Coordinator ad interim for the occupied Palestinian territory, Yvonne Helle, said on Wednesday "So far in 2020, 689 structures have been demolished across the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, more than in any full year since 2016, rendering 869 Palestinians homeless."

She said that the lack of Israeli-issued building permits "is typically cited as a reason, even though, due to the restrictive and discriminatory planning regime, Palestinians can almost never obtain such permits."

Demolitions, added Helle, are a key means of creating an environment designed to coerce Palestinians to leave their homes.

The UN official pointed out that the latest demolitions took place on Tuesday in the occupied Jordan Valley. "Seventy-three people, including 41 children, were displaced when Israeli authorities demolished their homes and other structures and destroyed belongings in the Palestinian community of Humsa Al-Bqai'a. Three quarters of the community's population lost their shelters, making this the largest forced displacement incident in over four years."


EU Calls on Israel to Halt Demolition Policy

Two days after the Israeli occupation forces demolished more than 70 structures, including residential, livelihood, and sanitation facilities, belonging to 11 Palestinian families with 41 children in Khirbet Hamsa al-Fawqa, in the northern Jordan Valley, the European Union today called on Israel to halt this demolition policy.

A statement by the EU spokesperson said "the large-scale demolition confirms once again the regrettable trend of confiscations and demolitions since the beginning of the year."

There are currently 52 Palestinian schools under threat of demolition.

"Such developments constitute an impediment towards the two-state solution. The EU reiterates its call on Israel to halt all such demolitions, including of EU-funded structures, in particular in light of the humanitarian impact of the current coronavirus pandemic."
