Note how Opponents of Hadith distort and mutilate the Quran.
by Kaukab Siddique
Nov. 11, 2020

One of the basic points the munkireen (rejectors) of Hadith make is that the Prophet (pbuh) himself had forbidden the writing of Hadith. They even quote the Prophet (pbuh) on this and those who don't know are very impressed.

Now note the following points:
  1. If the rejectors' view of the Qur'an was right (that it has everything in it, even the details), they would have been able to bring a verse from the Qur'an which would say: Hadith of the Prophet is not needed when you have the Qur'an.
    They cannot bring such a verse. So what do they do? They bring a hadith to support their view!
  2. It is a sign of their dishonesty that they do not quote the whole hadith. Here is the complete Hadith. I have italicized the part the rejectors quote:
    From Sahih Muslim: "Abu Sa'eed Khudri narrates from the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be on him: Do not write anything from me and whoever has written anything from me other than the Qur'an should erase it, and narrate hadith verbally from me: there is no harm in that (in Arabic WA HADATHU 'UNNI WA LA HARAJ), and whoever deliberately tells a lie about me should make his place in hellfire."

Would it be wrong to assume that the rejectors have made a place for themselves in hellfire by falsifying these words of the Prophet (pbuh) by quoting only half the hadith.

Entire books have been written on this subject by the scholars of Islam. (One easily available in Urdu is IBN MAJA AUR 'ILM-e-HADITH by Muhammad Abdur Rasheed Naumani. I read this about 20 years back.)

The Prophet (pbuh) and later Abu Bakr (ra) did not want the words of the Qur'an and the words of the Hadith to get mixed up with each other. Hence the WRITING ONLY of Hadith was stopped. Remember that the reciters of the Qur'an and the narrators of the Hadith were the same people, the companions of the Prophet (Allah be pleased with them). In the early stages, the danger of the two writings getting mixed up was very real.

Even then the ban on writing was not complete. There are numerous narrations which indicate that when a companion (sahabi) expressed difficulty in remembering the Hadith, the Prophet (pbuh) not only allowed him but encouraged him to write it down. Thus many Hadith continued to be written though memorization was the general rule in those early days.

Every companion of the Prophet, including 'Umar and Ali (Allah be pleased with them), depended on the Prophet's interpretation, explanation and implementation of the Qur'an (what we call Hadith of the Prophet). Every teaching of the Qur'an was elaborated by the Sahaba on the basis of the Prophet's Hadith. Thus those who attack the Hadith are attacking the entire history of Islam. They are trying to destroy the credibility of the Sahaba, who also are the transmitters of the Qur'an, and thus these munkireen do the work of the Jews to uproot Islam.

HOW THEY HAVE MISUNDERSTOOD THE QUR'AN: Munkireen (rejectors) have based their whole theory on the idea that Prophet Muhammad's task was ONLY TO DELIVER THE QUR'AN.

One such person named Mabrook Ismaeel, or someone who hides behind that name, quotes the last part of 24:54 thus: "The sole duty of the messenger is to deliver." This is a clear distortion of the Qur'an if you look at the Arabic original and the context of the verse.

The words "illa balagh al-Mubeen" (only to preach or proclaim clearly) can in no way be translated as "only ... to deliver."

How do we know that? From the Qur'an itself. In several verses the Qur'an emphasizes the Prophet's mission to proclaim and preach the message clearly and unambiguosly so that people can make their choice between acceptance or rejection. Islam cannot be imposed on anyone. The Qur'an was brought to the people by the Prophet. He presented it very honestly and clearly to them. Those who accepted, he organized them into a community which became the model for all future Islamic movements.

For instance 16:82, follows evidence of Allah's creativity. The Prophet is then told" "But if they turn away, thy duty is only to preach the Clear Message." Thus after he has brought them the Qur'an, it's up to them to accept or turn away. He cannot put faith in their hearts.

Even when verses on laws about intoxicants and gambling are revealed, the Qur'an brings out the same idea of the responsibility of the audience to make choices, and they will be judged accordingly in the Hereafter. Here is a verse immediately after the ban on intoxicants and gambling: "Obey Allah, and obey the messenger, and beware if you do turn back, know you that it is our messenger's duty to proclaim the message in the clearest manner (al balagh al-mubeen in Arabic)" (5:92)

Thus to claim that because the messenger's duty was to proclaim the message clearly, he had no other duty is absurd for anyone who has read the Qur'an. The life, words, actions of the Prophet were interpretations of the Qur'an. After 5:92, it was his task to remove intoxicants anf gambling and his actions come to us through the Hadith.

Allah sent the Qur'an with the messenger and together they fulfill the final message of Allah. In fact, the Prophet (pbuh) comes first and through him and his sahaba comes the Qur'an.

There is no way the Qur'an can be understood without the Prophet's Hadith. That is one reason why the Jews and other orientalists remain KUFFAR although they have become experts in Qur'anic terminolgy: they do not and cannot accept the Prophet (pbuh) because the Prophet's understanding of the Qur'an brings the Islamic revolution.

Now let's go back to 24:54 and see how the rejectors have totally distorted the Qur'an. (In other words, here I am going from comparison with other verses to the context of the specific verse the rejector used.) I will quote 24:54, 55, 56 to bring out the totality of the message:

Say:"Obey Allah and obey the Messenger: but if ye turn away, he is only responsible for the duty placed on him and you for that placed on you. If you obey him, you shall be on the right guidance. The Messenger's duty is only to proclaim the clear message." Allah has promised to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them in the land inheritance of power, as he granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their way of life - the one which He has chosen for them; and that He will change their state, after the fear in which they lived, to one of security and peace: They will worship Me (alone) and not associate anything with Me. If any do reject faith after this, they are wicked indeed. So establish prayer and give zakat and OBEY THE MESSENGER that you may receive mercy.
(emphasis added)

Thus these verses are in fact prophesying the victory of Islam, under the Prophet and the Sahaba and whenever Muslims follow authentic Islam. The last verse which I have emphasized mentions obedience to the Prophet thus shattering the theory that Allah and His messenger only mean Allah! Does the Prophet here also mean Allah! (astaghfirullah)

After the message has been proclaimed, the righteous who accept it are being promised Caliphate (layastakhlifannahum fil Ard in Arabic).

So there goes the theory that the Prophet (pbuh) was only sent to "deliver" the message and that's it.
I don't know what these MUNKIREEN make of the verses about Jihad in the Qur'an. If his task was only to deliver the message, what about Jihad? Is this another Qadiani attempt to abrogate Jihad?

Dear readers, our westernized elites (that is all of us) have been given a severe case of inferiority complex by the power and glitter of the west. Some of us fall so low that we start insulting great Muslims like hazrat Abu Huraira and Imam Bukhari. (Actually through this process such people like the munkireen are used by the Jews to attack the very basis of Islam.) A nation which does not respect its scholars and elders soon becomes a nation of slaves.

Pakistan Situation

 Pakistan Situation

Fighting on the Line of Control: Heavy fighting on the Line of Control (LOC). Casualties on both sides. Artillery, mortars, and ATGMs (Anti Tank Guided Missiles) used along with small arms. Pakistan is constrained in targeting as it has to be careful not to hit the civilian population, as the population is Muslim and Pakistan considers them as its own population. India is not constrained by such considerations. A lot of civilian villages and towns have been hit, with a lot of homes set on fire. Fire exchange at the LOC is a regular occurrence. However, this is an escalation since February 2019, when Pakistan shot down two Indian warplanes, and panicky Indians shot down one of their own helicopters.

The Political Alliance of Rogues and Knaves: A coterie of convicted and indicted criminals, a perceived homosexual/transsexual, a corrupt religious leader (Mullah) known for his diesel contracts and named "Mullah Diesel", along with mini groups of assorted racist and hate groups are leading a group called Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) to overthrow the government of the duly elected Imran Khan, and smear the army. They are claiming the elections of 2018 were not fair as they didn't win, and Imran Khan was able to form a coalition government (does that sound familiar to American readers?). They have held public meetings in three cities. The crowds there were large, but by Pakistani standards not impressive. According to observers the crowds mostly consisted of party workers and a "rent a crowd" bused in.

Imran Khan is trying to bring these corrupt politicians to book for looting the country for decades and making it bankrupt. The aim of this movement seems to somehow let these corrupt looters of the country keep their wealth, and retire to some foreign country to enjoy their ill-gotten gains; until times change, and they can return to Pakistan, to batten off the life blood of the country, like a pack of vampires.

The Government: Imran Khan came to power to end government corruption and put the looters in prison. Unfortunately for him, the previous leaders have left a lot of land mines for him. The anti-corruption institution NAB is full of their cronies. Their technique is to prepare weak cases that get dismissed by the courts, and the accused can walk free. They have put land mines everywhere by planting their cronies in the judiciary, bureaucracy, police etc. The police protects Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) land grab mafias. In Sindh, government schools have been turned into areas to put livestock, by rural feudal lords, who are the backbone of support for the ruling party in Sindh, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP). The work against corruption is proceeding, but is slow, as the courts are ineffective, slow and corrupt. The people would love Stalinist trails, with public confessions followed by executions. However, that's is not possible in Pakistan.

The Economy: Imran Khan got an economy which was bankrupt, and hocked to the eyebrows. He had to go to the IMF to make loan payments. Another "gift" left behind by the previous government was that during their watch Pakistan had been put on the Financial Anti-terrorism Task Force (FATF) grey list. This increases the cost of doing business in Pakistan.

However, the macro-economics of the country is turning around. Pakistan came out much better from the COVID 19 pandemic than other countries of the region. Textile factories are working 24 hours, and they want to employ another two hundred thousand people. Exports are increasing. The stock market is booming. Prices of flour and sugar went up due to mismanagement, as well as deliberate sabotage by the bureaucracy and the Sindh government. These prices are expected to come down soon.


Situation in Pakistan is not good: JI View


LAHORE- November 14: Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Senator Sirajul Haq has said that Pakistan could not achieve prosperity without getting rid of the feudal lords and agents of the imperialistic forces.

The state institutions, he said while addressing a JI Youth meeting here on Saturday, worked mostly under the influence of elite ruling class and they were equally responsible to the public plight.

The JI chief regretted that majority of the political parties were alien to the concept of democracy and they acted as family limited groups. There was a dire need, he said, to introduce the concept of rule of law in the country, start an across the board accountability drive and a powerful justice system. The state institutions, he said, should work for the interest of the country instead of being faithful to some specific political party.

Sirajul Haq said the deteriorating economy could be fixed only by getting rid of the interest based financial regime and making check on non-developmental expenditures on the luxuries of the rulers. However, he regretted, that the party which came to power by making tall claims to change the destiny of the nation has badly failed to show performance in any of the sector in two and half year. The PTI, he said, also proved itself the agent of the status quo, disappointing not only general masses but its voters and supporters. He said the incumbent government continued the policies of Parvez Musharraf, the PPP and the PML-N in every sector. He appealed the people not to trust these agents of the western power anymore and voted the JI into power to bring real change in the country.

Meanwhile, JI Deputy Emir Liaqat Baloch said that the devolution of power to the gross root was necessary for the national unity. For this, he said, the federal and provincial governments should immediately hold local government elections in a transparent manner. He also raised concern over the reports regarding pre-poll rigging in GB polls, saying any interference in the Gilgit-Baltistan election could further put in danger the Kashmir cause. He regretted the state institutions and political powers were addict to the habit of election rigging which must be shun now keeping in mind its international and local impact on the country. He said the JI had started a campaign to bring reforms in Pakistan which would continue till the achievement of goal.

The Real Picture of the Rally in DC for Trump
by Ken Meyercord

I was at the pro-Trump rally in DC today. As you may not hear much about it in your favorite media, here's my impression. It was massive, one of the largest I've ever been to, and, living here in Washington, I've been to a few.

Pennsylvania Ave. was packed from Freedom Plaza to the Supreme Court (distance of a mile for those of you who don't live here). Tens of thousands, though I'll leave it to the police to say how many tens.

Didn't see any "Proud Boys and other far right groups", as CNN put it, but I wasn't everywhere. What I saw was a peaceable assembly of a typical American crowd, a bit heavy on the driven-snow side perhaps, but that's true of antiwar marches I have attended, too.

I saw no violence, not even much name-calling between contending protestors (counter-protestors were hardly to be seen, except a couple of hundred anti-Trumpers in front of the White House, a safe distance from Freedom Plaza).

Two notable aspects of the event: (1) no line of parked charter busses which had transported the faithful here from out-of-town

(I met people from New Jersey, Colorado, and Florida who had all made their own way here), (2) no port-a-potties (which made for some dicey moments for this 76-year-old). Not much of a sound system, either. It all bespeaks the spontaneous, sponsor-less, tyro nature of the demonstration.

I suspect there will be larger, better organized ones in the coming weeks, held by both sides. I'm betting that whoever takes the oath on the steps of the Capitol on January 20th will look out on the largest inauguration crowd ever, one more feisty than festive.

BBC's Fake News Rebutted

The government of Mozambique has rebutted the BBC News that Islamic State fighters had a beheaded many civilians. The government says nothing like that has happened.

In fact, three attacks by government troops reinforced by troops from South Africa and Tanzania were beaten back by IS fighters who have captured North Eastern Mozambique. [BBC is notorious for publishing fake news about IS, although most of its World News is accurate]

Serious attack inside Baghdad.

In a surprise attack, 11 government soldiers were killed. The attackers escaped. Islamic State is suspected.

[Numerous other attacks by IS all over the country are reported but no details are available.]

Artillary on Both Sides

On Friday, Nov 13, an artillery duel happened between Pakstani and Indian troops on the LOC [line of control]. One Pakistani soldier and 5 Kashmiri civilians were killed, and 30 were injured. Several houses were demolished by the Indians. Pakistan's artillery response reportedly killed 3 Indian soldiers and 7 civilians and injured several others. Details are not available. This is the first clash in a long period of time.

Pro-Armenian forces Capitulate

After Azerbaijani troops captured the town of Shushi and threatened the Karabakh, the pro-Armenian forces decided to stop fighting and to hand over two regions of Karabakh to Azerbaijan. Syrian mujaheddin forces supported by Turkey played a major role in the defeat of the pro-Armenian forces. Turkey says if the Armenian's break this cease-fire, there will be major consequences.

Fighting around the country

Details are not available but it seems that pro-Turkish Syrians are fighting communist Kurds in the Northwest near Aleppo. Islamic State forces are fighting Iranian and other Shia militias supporting Assad in the provinces of Homs, Hama and Southeastern Deir ez Zhor. Conflict and tension are reported from Dera province. Details are not available at the time of publishing, but should be in the next issue.
Pro-Assad Shia militias are shelling villages in Irbid province and are being answered by mortar and machine gun fire coming from suspected pro-Al-Qaeda groups.

Iran. Israel. Egypt
Attack by Israeli Agents in Iran killed leader. Revenge attack in Sinai [Egypt].

NY Times reports that in August, Israeli agents killed a top al-Qaeda leader Muhammad al-Masri and his daughter in Iran. The killers escaped. The daughter was the widow of Osama bin Laden's son.

In a seeming revenge attack on November 13, an American helicoptor was shot down in the Sinai, killing 5 American officers, a Czech officer, and a French officer. An 8th officer was wounded and airlifted to Israel where he also later died. The U.S. says it was a mechanical failure, but this claim was made so soon after the crash that it casts doubts on its accuracy because the U.S. typically spends months investigating crashes to determine the exact cause. It is US policy to not "give credit" to opposers, so the cause may not be mechanical.

According to Al-Jazeera IS groups fighting against Egypt are active in the Sinai.

[Readers might remember when a Russian helicopter recently crashed in Libya, there were no casualties and pilots were quickly rescued].

Female Activist Gunned Down

Hanan al-Barassi, a prominent Libyan lawyer and women's rights activist, was gunned down by armed men Tuesday in the eastern city of Benghazi.

Her killing in Benghazi came just a day after she shared comments on social media criticizing the son of renegade military general and LNA leader Khalifa Haftar. And in videos posted publicly on her Facebook page, al-Barassi expressed criticism of figures loyal to the LNA.

In a livestream shared on Monday, just a day before her killing, she said she would not be silenced by threats.

"I won't surrender, only with bullets will I ever surrender -- if I die, so be it. Only in death will I be silenced. Tomorrow I will have several surprises [to share], several surprises," she told viewers.

'Verily the believer exhausts his devil just like one of you exhausts his camel during travel.' meaning the believer wears out his devil, so he debilitates him and makes him lose weight from his grief and sadness because he is not able to tempt him!
Just like the person wears out his riding camel during travel and makes it lose weight due to the length of the travel and its hardships and this is the condition of the believer with his devil in the constant struggle with him he resists his plots and plans and whispers by always being firm upon the obedience of ALLAH the Exalted and Mighty...{!}

Ibn Abi Dunya{Allah be pleased with him} narrates in his book
"The plots of the devil" Verily a devil meets another devil so he says to him why is it that I see you looking so sickly? (Meaning the change is weight)" The other devil replies...
' Verily I am with a man that if he eats he remembers the name of ALLAH ! so I can not eat with him...! and if he drinks he remembers the name of ALLAH so I can not drink with him! and if he enters into his home he remembers the name of ALLAH so I am rejected outside of the house'...{!}
The other devil says, but as for me then I am with a man if he eats he does not remember ALLAH so he and I eat together, and if he drinks he does not remember ALLAH so I drink with him, and when he enters his home he does not remember ALLAH so I enter with him...{!}

a Little Note...
Exhaust: weaken; meaning they exhaust him making him lose weight. Thus making him a 'Nidwan' (the 'Nidwu' is an animal that has become lean, skinny through traveling thus its meat has left its body !}

Hadith of the Week

Narrated by 'Aisha, r.a.:

The Prophet intended to return home after the performance of the Hajj, and he saw Safiya standing at the entrance of her tent, depressed and sad because she got her menses.

The Prophet said, "Aqra Halqa! -An expression used in the Quraish dialect meaning "You will detain us."

The Prophet then asked (her),

"Did you perform the Tawaf Al-Ifada on the Day of Sacrifice (10th of Dhul-Hijja)?"
She said, "Yes."
The Prophet said, "Then you can leave (with us)."

As-slamu alaikum,
Allah said in the Qur'an (3:159):

"فَبِمَا رَحۡمَةٍ مِّنَ اللّٰهِ لِنۡتَ لَهُمۡۚ وَلَوۡ كُنۡتَ فَظًّا غَلِيۡظَ الۡقَلۡب¦ لَانْفَض§ُوۡا مِنۡ حَوۡلِكَ.."
"Due to Allah's mercy, you are gentle with them.
Had you been severe and harsh hearted, they would have fled from around you."
This was the quality of the Prophets and this is the characteristic that all those who seek to guide others to Allah must have. As it was essential for the Prophets, it is essential for us. It is essential for parents, with regard to their children.
Oh Allah, I am indeed harsh, so make me gentle; I am weak,
so make me strong and
make me generous.


Settlement watchdog says the Israel Land Authority opened tenders for more than 1,200 new homes in East Jerusalem.

A settlement watchdog group says Israel is moving ahead with new construction of hundreds of homes in an illegal East Jerusalem settlement that threatens to cut off parts of the city claimed by Palestinians from the West Bank.
The group, Peace Now, said the Israel Land Authority announced on its website on Sunday that it had opened up tenders for more than 1,200 new homes in Givat Hamatos in East Jerusalem.

Construction could then begin
within months.

"This is a lethal blow to the prospects for peace," Peace Now said in a statement, adding Israel was "taking advantage of the final weeks of the President Donald Trump's administration in order to set facts on the ground that will be exceedingly hard to undo in order to achieve peace".

The move may test ties with the incoming administration of Biden, who is expected to take a firmer tack against the expansion of illegal Israeli settlements after four years of a more lenient policy under Trump, who has largely turned a blind eye to the construction.

The approval of the 1,200 homes is a further setback to dwindling hopes of an internationally-backed partition deal that would enable the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel.

Volkswagen defends its decision to continue operating a car plant in Xinjiang.

Xinjiang is a Chinese region mired in allegations of large-scale human rights abuses by the state. And evidence that hundreds of thousands of Uighurs and other minorities are being detained in camps, or used as forced labour in factories, has led some multinational companies to cut ties with the region, despite China's insistence that the claims are untrue.

Volkswagen's critics argue that it has a particular moral obligation not to be involved in such practices because of its history.

The company was founded by the ruling German Nazi Party in 1937 and used forced labour - including concentration camp prisoners - in its factories during WWII.

 Volkswagen operating in Xinjiang

But in an interview with the BBC in Beijing, the company's CEO in China, Stephan Wollenstein, defended Volkswagen's presence in Xinjiang's capital, Urumqi, where it runs a factory with 600 workers, producing up to 20,000 vehicles a year.

"What happened in the Nazi times was something that happened in our factories where we had forced labour, people producing Volkswagen cars," he said.

"This certainly is an unacceptable situation. Therefore, we are making sure that none of our production sites have forced labour, and this is something that we specifically checked in Urumqi and I can assure you, we do not have forced labour."

But when asked whether he could be absolutely certain of that claim and give an assurance that none of the Urumqi workforce - of which around 25% is made up of Uighurs and other minorities - had been in a camp, Dr Wollenstein said he couldn't.

"We try to control our company-related processes, including the HR process, which, for instance, means the hiring of people in the best possible manner," he said.

"And this reduces for us the risk that something happens which we do not like and which is not complying to our standards. But I guess we could never reach 100% certainty."

Dividend of #EndSARS Protest
By Abdulkabir Oyemomi

Recall that I hinted that Nigeria was sitting on a keg of gun powder in the last article. Many people had thought because our matter did not end up in physical war , we could sleep two eyes closed. No.

Before the agitation for a stop at the menace of Nigeria Police Force in general and that of Special Anti - Robbery Squad (SARS) in particular, it was not that there was security in any part of the country: there were banditry attacks in almost all parts of the North, Kidnapping was reigning everywhere, especially the Eastern part of the country, human rituals was a norm in the West( courtesy of priests and marabout self acclaimed Ulema of Islam as well as pastors of various Pentecostals ), daily killings by cult members of different adversary fraternities ; Now we know unrests have grades!

The last protest was clearly a battle for government for hoodlums. Participants were only hiding under the banners of #Endsars because the first active protesters were internet fraudstars popularly referred to as ' Yahoo Boys'. These guys were against SARS because the only stumbling block to them were men of SARS. But these boys got sympathy of many because these members of SARS were not bringing them to book but making them as fortune machines for themselves. When these boys were caught in this dastardly acts, SARS negotiated with them and went with largest chunk of their ill-gotten fortunes. Other people in the protest were do or die politicians, who wanted to blackmail the government of the day to gain sympathies of the electorates.

The main crux of this piece is what ordinary Nigerians are facing now. Now, Nigerians can not move freely and feel safe because you can be attacked at any time and anywhere! The Police have refused to come out because they are more engulfed with fear than ordinary people now. Many police were murdered in the wake of last protest. Their stations were destroyed by these hoodlums protesters as if Police were not Nigerians or had adequate care from government!

Truly, there have been untoward hardships in the land. The government is helpless or clueless or both. It has been promises upon promises without achievement. Everything is almost out of order! Pump price of fuel increased with lame excuses. This government appears to be bringing hardships more than what they met. Nothing seems to be working as everybody is running out of patience. All these call for sincere yearning. But if those protesting against all these abnormalities could result in maiming and killing and destroying of properties, then this country could hardly produce a sane leader or leadership.

The writer believes strongly that we are here today because of over reliance in human beings, while we think less of Allah, the perfect. The earlier we resort back to Allah , the better for us all.
