Islamic Economics provides the way for preventing pandemics and regulating their socioeconomic impact:
by Dr. Javed Jamil

"Economic Fundamentalism Facilitator of Pandemics and their Economic Consequences: The Way Out in Islam": Research paper published in the January 2021 edition of KAU Journal of Islamic Economics published by King Abdul Aziz University, Jeddah, the top ranking University of Saudi Arabia.

"Islam provides the answers by promoting only healthy economics and discarding the dangerous economics, in terms of effect on health and social justice, and also giving directions how to contain epidemics. It also ensures that the wealth does not remain in the hands of a few, but is more equitably distributed; and the governments are in a healthy economic position to meet the demands in times of crises. Islamic experts and Muslim countries and organizations need to highlight the extraordinary results if Islam's socioeconomic and heath-friendly propositions are applied in the world."

Staff Reporter

Renowned thinker and writer, Dr. Javed Jamil, currently Chair in Islamic Studies and Research, Yenepoya (deemed to be) University, Mangalore, has emphasized that the commercialisation of the substances and practices prohibited in Islam is the major cause behind the rise of various pandemics, and Islamic Economics provides the way out of their socioeconomic impact. He has expressed these opinions in his research paper published in the January 2021 edition of KAU Journal of Islamic Economics published by King Abdul Aziz University, Jeddah, the top ranking University of Saudi Arabia. He was invited to be a part of an international panel to discuss the role of Islamic Economics in avoiding and countering the impact of the Covid-19 like situations in the world. Started in 1983, the Journal of King Abdulaziz University - Islamic Economics has the honour to be the first professional journal in the field of Islamic economics. It is listed by some of the most prestigious indexing services providers on the subject of economics like Scopus, SSRN, EconLit, and RePEc.

In the paper titled, "Economic Fundamentalism Facilitator of Pandemics and their Economic Consequences: The Way Out in Islam", Dr. Jamil, known for his work in "Apllied Islamics" has shown that most of the major killers in the last 100-120 years, including Swine Flu, Spanish Flu, HIV/AIDS, HPV/Carcinoma Cervix, Hepatitis-B, Rabies, etc and now Covid-19, the association with Islamic positions is proven beyond doubt by the facts and figures available in the realm of medical sciences. Pork, sexual malpractices including promiscuity, prostitution and homosexuality, presence of dogs in the domestic areas and eating of prohibited wild animals like bats and pangolins, have all been the major reasons behind the rise of these pandemics, which have killed more than 200 million people in the last century. The role of alcohol in the rise of HIV/AIDS and other Sex Transmitted diseases is also well-documented. Dr. Jamil has shown that circumcision plays an extremely important role in prevention of HIV/AIDS and HPV, which is associated with hundreds of thousands of deaths of women due to Cancer Cervix, which is relatively rare in the wives/partners of circumcised men. He has argued that, if despite huge mortality and morbidity associated with these practices, they are allowed and popularised, it is because of the fact that all of them are big markets.

Dr. Jamil has argued that if Prophetic Hadith on the epidemics had been followed and none had been allowed to enter and leave Wuhan, when Corona epidemic broke there, the world would have largely been saved. He has also opined that the disease spread fast due to drinking habits of the people, night life and the role of certain powers in holding Economics above Health. He has argued that, in contrast to Islam, which gives priority to the survival and healthiness of life, the modern international systems are dominated by the economic interests at the cost of health and family and social peace. Lambasting the current economic philosophy of "economic fundamentalism" he says that Market forces are busy in commercializing dangerous practices in the name of freedom of choice, which is leading to many health issues. They first commercialise the problems and then they commercialise solutions, he argues. The Islamic economic philosophy is based on the supremacy of peace, which is a comprehensive state covering individuals, family and society; human peace, health, security, and welfare are the guiding factors, and no matter how strong the economic reasons are, any activity that threatens health and comprehensive peace cannot be permitted.
The concluding remarks of the paper are worth reproducing:

"In conclusion, the following points need to be highlighted:
the Covid-19 outbreak had its origins in the market of wild animals, many of which prove to have a biological structure suitable for transmission of viruses to humans, which then have the propensity to lead to human-to-human transmission.
it started spreading from the place of origin to the rest of the world, because nothing was done at the right time to stop trafficking of the people from and to the place of its origin.
it hit the economy particularly hard because the world economy had a huge share for the entertainment industry, which crashed due to social distancing and lockdown measures.
it hit the people hard, because in most of the countries, except for the few elite, the masses are poor as well as the governments. Huge economic inequality in countries like India led to huge disasters.
In short, if in today's world, the major portions of the economy had been in the sectors, which pose no threat to health or social justice, the situation would not have been as bad as it has turned out to be. If this continues, the future will bring bigger disasters."

He adds:

"Islam provides the answers by promoting only healthy economics and discarding the dangerous economics, in terms of effect on health and social justice, and also giving directions how to contain epidemics. It also ensures that the wealth does not remain in the hands of a few, but is more equitably distributed; and the governments are in a healthy economic position to meet the demands in times of crises. Islamic experts and Muslim countries and organizations need to highlight the extraordinary results if Islam's socioeconomic and heath-friendly propositions are applied in the world."

Dr. Jamil has also called upon the Islamic world, especially rich Muslim countries including the OPEC countries, "to play a role in the availability of vaccination to the poor in their countries as well as in other countries." He also stressed that "Islamic countries need to invest more and more in scientific research."

Dr. Javed Jamil has also argued that the current reach of Islamic Economics has become limited to Financing and Banking. It has become "an abysmal failure in influencing in any way the direction of the globalization, which revolves around the commercialization of not only human strengths, but also of human weaknesses." So, while Islamic finance is to be promoted, other important measures related to economics should not be lost sight of, and there needs to be more work on the generation of wealth within the Islamic trio of Rights, Duties and Prohibitions, establishment of taxation system based on Zakah, Ushr and Khums and campaign against the Economics of Prohibited Substances and practices. He has also proposed a new definition of Islamic Economics:

"Islamic economics refers to the establishment of a world order where people, individuals or groups, are free to earn their livelihood through rightful use of the provisions of God and their abilities, natural or acquired, without the violations of the true goal of Comprehensive Peace that Qur'an envisages, that is within the boundaries of the three-dimensional system of Fundamental Rights, Fundamental Duties and Fundamental Prohibitions, and the establishment of a system that ensures comfortable living for each and every human being, including those who are in a disadvantageous position, temporarily or permanently, due to some reason."

Dr. Jamil has also presented a detailed Islamic Holistic regime of hygiene as part of Dynamic Paradigm of Health based on Islam.



JI's Message
2020: The Year of the Pakistani
Mafia. Stop US pressure.

by Qaiser Sharif

LAHORE: December 31- Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Senator Sirajul Haq has said that 2020 proved lucky for mafias in Pakistan who multiplied their wealth by creating fake crises of sugar, flour, petrol and other commodities only due to the sheer negligence of the PTI government.

Talking to media after addressing a training workshop for the teachers and students at Mansoora on Thursday, he said although the government tried to set every example of bad governance during the entire year, the damage created to education, health and agriculture sectors was seemed irreparable.

Educational institutional were lying closed for entire year, causing severe loss to the learning of students but no plan was developed to cope with the challenge and minimize the educational losses, he said. Besides education, the health and agriculture sectors were also on the verge of collapse, he said, adding at a time when the different countries started vaccination program, hospital in Pakistan were even deprived of from the basic facilities for patients and PPEs for medical professionals and staff. The prices of agricultural inputs were touching the skies and the government left in the state of peril around 100 million people dependent on agriculture, he said. The PTI chairman used to say he would prefer committing suicide over picking begging bowl and taking loans from any country after coming into power but his government broke all previous records of taking foreign loans and it took $4.7 billion alone in past five months (July to November), he said. The PTI claim to bring "change" remained limited to change the nomenclature of the ministers and repeated transfers and postings in bureaucracy, he said, adding it made thousands jobless instead of providing employment to 10 million youth.

Senator Siraj demanded the government immediately cancel agreement between FIA and NAB because the MoU was tantamount to officially allowing the US agency to interfere in internal matters of the country. He also demanded the government immediately address the concern of the intermediate students regarding the entry test in medical colleges and universities.

The JI chief appealed to the teachers and students to utilize their full energy in spreading the light of knowledge in every nook and corner of the country. Pakistan, he added, was not established to be ruled over by the agents of the British and Western powers rather the people of the country were the real heir of it. He said the future of the country was bright but there was dire need that people took a bold stand against the status quo powers.

National Association for Education (NAFE) organized the sitting in connection with the teacher training program.

Israeli Spy returns to Israel.
BBC December 30

Jonathan Pollard, the former US Navy analyst who spent 30 years in prison for spying for Israel, has flown to Tel Aviv a month after a travel ban ended.

Mr Pollard, 66, and his wife Esther were greeted at the airport by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who recited a Jewish blessing with them.

"You're home," Mr Netanyahu said, before handing over an Israeli ID card. Mr Pollard was arrested in 1985 and given a life sentence after pleading guilty to selling US secrets to Israel. He said he had been frustrated by the US withholding key intelligence from its staunch ally.

Israel initially denied Mr Pollard had spied for the state, insisting he had worked with "rogue" officials. But in 1995 Israel granted him citizenship, and three years later it officially recognised him as an agent.

Successive US administrations rejected Israeli appeals for Mr Pollard to be shown clemency, and it was not until 2015 that he was released on parole.

The private plane for Pollard's return was provided by US Jewish billionaire Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam.

How the Biggest Myth was created and then turned into "history."
[from CODOH]

Rudolf Reder versus Kurt Gerstein" (HH Vol. 43) just released.

As announced in our Christmas circular, we are pround to release today (a few hours before the end of 2020!) Carlo Mattogno's latest accomplishment, Rudolf Reder versus Kurt Gerstein: Two False Testimonies on the Bełżec Camp Analyzed, which is Volume 43 of our prestigious series Holocaust Handbooks:

C. Mattogno: Rudolf Reder versus Kurt Gerstein: Two False Testimonies on the Bełżec Camp Analyzed
C. Mattogno: Rudolf Reder versus Kurt Gerstein

In this study, Carlo Mattogno shows how the myth of gas-chamber mass murder was created during the war and in the immediate postwar period, and how it has been turned subsequently into "history" by intellectually corrupt scholars who cherry-picked claims that fit into their political agenda and ignored or actively covered up literally thousands of lies of "witnesses" to make their narrative look credible. Carlo Mattogno has created yet another masterpiece of historical analysis of all the relevant source material upon which the orthodox Auschwitz narrative is based. And its effect is devastating for the orthodoxy.

Disturbing Aspect of Pandemic
by Sis. Aisha
[Jamaat al-Muslimeen]

New York City - The most unsettling aspect of this CoronaVirus Plandemic is the role most medical practices are playing in it. People with ongoing illnesses (diabetes, hypertension, kidney ailments, etc.) are not receiving the attention they deserve. People have been admitted to the hospital with serious accident injuries and have passed away without loved ones being there to comfort them or say a final good-bye because they were not allowed visitation. People are being required to take a COVID-19 test before undergoing any kind of medical procedure to test for COVID-19 and they must show up alone.

Medical professionals behaving unprofessionally may sound strange to some us because they have taken various oaths to preserve life but, the American medical field has a disturbing history. Besides respected doctors performing sadistic experiments on American slaves, it was not long ago that hospitals would turn away seriously injured people because they were not white. Many of these nonwhites, died en route to the nearest colored hospitals. Dr. Charles Drew, inventor of the blood transfusion, and blues singer Bessie Smith were fatalities as a result of this horrific practice.

The CoronaVirus Plandemic has doctors playing more games with patients' lives. In spite of the fact that urgent care clinics have already been diagnosing sick patients, including ones with COVID-19, they are now making patients wait in long lines, outside of their facilities, to be seen. This is their effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. One woman said she had been waiting for three hours on a line. Making sick patients wait outside, in all kinds of weather, is barbaric!

Now, a COVID-19 vaccine has been created and it is already controversial. One controversy is the possible side effects and the other is that some companies (i.e. AstraZeneca & Jansen Research and Development) are using tissue from aborted fetuses in their vaccines. This Plandemic was always viewed as a money-making scheme by its critics and the creation of a vaccine is one of the ways to profit from COVID-19.

There are concerns that the government will find ways to force people to get the COVID-19 vaccine. These are the recent suggestions for compelling people to get the vaccine:
  1. A proposed $1000+ stimulus check only for vaccinated individuals.
  2. A condition for employment.
  3. A means for allowing travel, nationwide or worldwide.

If this government lockdown is based on a hoax, the people behind it need a tool that gives them "credibility." One such tool has been the positive reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) tests (nasal cotton swabs) used to test for COVID-19. The problem is that it is faulty and cannot distinguish between live (infectious) viruses and inactive (noninfectious) viruses. The key is in the cycle threshold (CT) used with the PCR test. The CT is process used to determine the presence of a certain molecule found in viral cells. Earlier research has revealed that a CT over 17 has a greater chance of yielding a false positive. However, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends running PCR tests with a CT set to 40, which guarantees false positives! This lockdown is based on these faulty PCR test results, not data from COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths.

There is a growing number of medical experts speaking out against these COVID-19 tests and questioning its necessity. A medical expert's opinion is based on scientific research. A public health official's opinion is based on his political views. Vigilance and activism is key. The American government has been creeping toward totalitarianism for years. It used snobbery to target and oppress nonwhites then, the poor. Now, it's using fearmongering to target everybody.

Hadith of the Week

Narrated by Muawiya, r.a.:

I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "If Allah wants to do good to a person, He makes him comprehend the religion. I am just a distributor, but the grant is from Allah. (And remember) that this nation (true Muslims) will keep on following Allah's teachings strictly and they will not be harmed by any one going on a different path till Allah's order (Day of Judgment) is established."

"يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِين¤ آمَنُواْ اسْتَعِي¦ُواْ بِالصَّب¨رِ وَالصَّل›َةِ إِنَّ اللّهَ مَعَ الصَّابِ›ِينَ"
"O you who believe! Seek help through patience and the prayer. Indeed, Allah (is) with the patient." (2:153)
Sins take you away from Allah. Salah takes you back to Allah.

Salah is very important: Fajr, Dhur, Asr, Maghrib, Isha = Recipe for success
After every hardship comes ease.
No difficulty will last.
No pain will remain forever.
Allah's help comes.
Oh Allah, open a way for me to be patient and to maintain my salah in a timely manner, so that I can fulfill my obligation to You. Ameen.

December 29
As-slamu alaikum,
We should make Dua not only for ourselves but for our parents, siblings, spouses, children, friends, and our community.

We should pray for them for the good in this world as well as in the Hereafter.

Prophet (pbuh) said: "The Dua of a Muslim for his brother in his absence is readily accepted. An angel is appointed to his side. Whenever he makes a beneficial Dua for his brother the appointed angel says, 'Ameen. And may you also be blessed with the same.'"

(Sahih Muslim)
Ya Allah protect us and all our relationships and loved ones
from evil.

HAMAS condemns the normalization of relations with Israel and accuses the Persian Gulf monarchies of betraying Palestine.

[From TelSur]

The head of the political leadership of the Resistance Movement of Palestine (HAMAS), Ismail Haniya, said Wednesday in a letter sent to the leaders of more than 30 Arab and Islamic countries that the normalization of relations with the Israeli regime is "a major political sin at the expense of the rights of our people, and represents a grave danger to the Palestinian cause and a treacherous stab in the back of our people."

He warned that the recent agreements of normalization had emboldened the Israeli regime to intensify its aggressive policies against the Palestinian nation. "The current wave of normalization has taken place while Zionist terrorism and aggression against our land and our people are intensifying and the unjust blockade in the Gaza Strip continues and the occupation persists in executing its criminal schemes," he declared.

Haniya reminded the Arab countries that Israel was and will continue to be the first common enemy of the entire Arab and Islamic world, and emphasized that the one who benefits from the path of normalization is only Israel, while the biggest losers are those countries that established ties with the occupation regime in Tel Aviv..


Wave of Fear among Uighurs living in Turkey. Will Turkey sell out?
[Hong Kong News.]

Turkey on Wednesday brushed aside fears that a new extradition treaty with China would result in Ankara deporting Muslim Uighurs en masse.

About 20 Uighurs with Turkish citizenship picketed China's consulate in Istanbul after the Chinese parliament ratified the 2017 treaty on Saturday.

It would be "wrong and unfair to say it's a deal for the extradition of Uighurs. We are more sensitive to such issues than others," he said.

Uighurs speak a Turkic language and have cultural ties with Turkey that make it a favoured destination for avoiding persecution in China's northwestern region of Xinjiang.
But news reports have accused Turkey of covertly returning Uighurs to China via third countries.

Rights activists say Xinjiang is home to a vast network of extrajudicial internment camps that have imprisoned at least one million people.

China says these are vocational training centres to counter extremism.

Ethnic Uighurs rallied for the ninth day running Wednesday to express their fears about the extradition treaty.
"God willing, we hope our state will not approve such a thing," said Omer Farah, an Uighur with Turkish citizenship who said his children are detained in China..
