Ramsey Clark, Great Friend of Muslims, Passed Away.
by Kaukab Siddique

We called him Ramsey. He passed away on April 9 at the age of 93. At one time he was attorney general of the USA but later turned all out against the policies of the United States.

I visited him at his humble abode in New York and met him during all the great protest rallies in Washington which I used to attend with zeal which could not match his vigor.

Among all our meetings, one really stands out. He came to our Jamaat al-Muslimeen's international conference in Baltimore. He came quietly by train and left quietly but every word he spoke was worth thinking about. [The conference became the target of Zionist propaganda.]

A central point of my interest in Ramsey was owing to his defense of the Blind Shaykh, Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman, which he consistently did along with the famous Lynn Stewart. It was a difficult cause and the government in tandem with the Egyptian tyrant would not let him go. Ramsey was always there for him.

At the end of the life of the Blind Shaykh, isolated and helpless, Ramsey was his only visitor. He was also, probably, the last to see him before he died.

People often forget or want to forget that Ramsey was in the court which was "trying" Saddam Hussain. I defended Saddam in the public domain but Ramsey was in the court with him. Try to think of the days when Saddam was the target of the biggest propaganda campaign launched globally by Israel and its western allies. Most Muslims dared not say a word for him. Ramsey knew the law and he could see that the "trial" of Saddam was a travesty.

When he started receiving too many phone calls and was
too exhausted to deal with all of them, his loyal wife stood by him and was a pillar of strength for him. A separate book should be written about her .

He was against the American aggression against Cuba. He was against the mistreatmment of the Black community which is so common in America. There was hardly an injustice which he did not oppose.

Does Allah have a special place for Ramsey who outdid
the Muslims in the way of justice? He could have just relaxed and enjoyed a peaceful retirement.



[Breaking News: April 18. Security forces attacked the center of the anti-Blasphemy movement in Lahore. It was a massacre as the Islamic protestors were unarmed. Many were killed and numerous injured, as reported by the movement spokesman.]

New Trend report.
Four days of Islamic Glory.
Unarmed Islamic Masses Trounced Imran & Bajwa regime.

April 12, 13, 14, 15.
Imran Khan, PM of Pakistan, as usual broke his word to break relations with France over blasphemic cartoons. Instead the regime arrested Saad Rizvi, the new leader of the anti-Blasphemy movement.

At a signal from the Islamic leadership, crowds of protestors emerged in every Pakistani city and town. They did not want anything from the government other than action against those who dishonor the Prophet, pbuh.

As usual the regime tried police action which gradually reached use of gunfire. Ten protestors were killed in Rawalpindi and 12 in Karachi and by now the number of martyrs has reached more than one hundred with more than 3,000 wounded by regime''s gunfire. Instead of running for their lives, the devotees of the Prophet, pbuh, confronted regime forces. As the crowds stoned the police, the regime forces fled. Some police were actually trampled and killed. Some were "captured" by the crowds and later released.

The corrupt combination of Prime Minister Imran Khan and America's favorite general Bajwa [known as the coward] did not realise that the masses love the Prophet, pbuh.

The regime sent in 8,000 troops to crush the Islamic crowds. The security forces started announcing "victories" as they broke up the crowds of unarmed people.

The security forces entered the Islamic centers of the anti-Blasphemy movement and arrested thousands of people.

It didn't work. The problem with Imran and Bajwa was that it's difficult to claim that those who love the Prophet, pbuh, are working for India, which the regime usually tries against opposition.

Finally the regime accepted defeat. It claimerd that the anti-Blasphemy movement is a terrorist movement and banned it. Now anyone can be arrested without charge.

That too didn't work. These people pray five times a day and use peaceful means to assert the demand to expel the French ambassador.

Finall;y the regime banned all media and on line reporting on the Islamic protest movement. There is silence now and the regime is declaring victory.

Role of General Bajwa & his puppet Imran Khan.

Most Pakistanis don't realize that the Pakistani generals have always supported NATO and the American occupation of Afghanistan. Weaponry for the western military moves through Pakistan into Afghanistan. Tanks, artillery, armored cars, jeeps, trucks cannot be air lifted into Afghanistan. They use Pakistani territory and pay the regime.

Imran Khan was brought into power to cover the moves of the real rulers of Pakistan: the military.

Imran's project has been, as that of most Pakistani rulers,: to make religion a private matter. Imran's cabinet is heavily secular. Not a beard among them. The entire pro-west drama in Pakistan moves around Imran and his camp followers.

The challenge has come from the masses supporting TLP whose slogan is unambiguously Islam:
'Here we are o Prophet, pbuh."

There are many sincere Islamic groups in Pakistan but for the first time a move has been successful against the regime.

A wedge has been driven into the secularist power structure.
The government has been exposedd. Even the honor of the Prophet,, pbuh, has been answered with guns and repression by the regime.

The rulers are directly and indirectly working for and with the western powers and are also settling in with India and Israel.

Kashmir has been abandoned. Even friction on the line of control has ended..

The regime pretends that it is unaware of the genocide of Muslims in Sinkiang where the Uighurs are in concentration camps. The shameless Prime Minister of Pakistan caims that he does not know.

Secret India-Pakistan Meetings

[from Reuters and al-Jazeera.]

Top intelligence officers from India and Pakistan held secret talks in Dubai in January in a new effort to calm military tension over the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir, people with close knowledge of the matter have told the Reuters news agency in New Delhi.

But Ayesha Siddiqa, a noted Pakistani defence analyst, said she believed Indian and Pakistan intelligence officials had been meeting for several months in other countries.

"I think there have been meetings in Thailand, in Dubai, in London between the highest-level people," she said.

Such meetings have taken place in the past as well, especially during times of crises but never been publicly acknowledged.

Iraq April 17.

Fighting is reported from the Kirkuk area where Islamic State fighters are reported to have set an oil well on fire.

WHO DESTROYED THE MOSUL MOSQUE.? During months of fighting which ended in 2017, in Mosul, the air forces of USA, Britain, France, Iran artillery and the Shia regime destroyed the famous Muslim city house by house.

ISIS had no way of shooting down the jets. According to the British paper the Independent, 40,000 civilians were killed in the bombing and more than a million citizens of Mosul were made homeless. In the final days of the Islamic resistance, the last photo showed a US air strike just next to the grand mosque. The western powers and Shias then announced that ISIS had destroyed the mosque.

No investigation was held to check this allegation. Through repetition, the west has convinced itself that ISIS did it.

The western powers and the Shias/Iran had the motivation to destroy the historic mosque because from there the Caliph proclaimed the Caliphate and challenged the global power of the enemies of Islam.

UAE is now offering to rebuild the mosque but Iraqi experts are saying the UAE is ignoring the traditional Iraqi style of the mosque,, that the model looks like a mosque in Sharjah.

Example of Deep Racism within the Police
by Sis. Aisha
[Jamaat al-Muslimeen]

Former Officer Cariole Horne's pension was reinstated on April 13, 2021. Her termination was also tossed by the court. While working as a police officer in Buffalo, New York, Horne responded to a call for backup from a fellow officer, in November 2006. As she arrived to the scene, she witnessed Officer Greg Kwiatkowski repeatedly punching handcuffed suspect, Neal Mack, in the face, while other officers did nothing. The suspect, Neal Mack, and former Officer Horne are of African-descent.

Former Officer Horne intervened and Officer Kwiatkowski assaulted her. According to reports, Officers Horne and Kwiatkowski traded blows in an altercation. As a result of her transgression, former Officer Horne faced departmental charges and was eventually fired, in 2008, one year short of her twentieth on the force, which was when she would have been eligible for her full pension.

In 2018, Officer Kwiatkowski was sentenced to four months in a federal prison, for a 2009 assault against four Black teenagers.

Members of public-access cable program Community Cop had often voiced support for former Officer Cariole Horne. The show's panel consists of retired members of law enforcement, who have stated that law enforcement agencies, throughout America, are rooted in a White supremacist culture.

*Sighting the New Moon of Ramadaan is Fardh

Kifaayah{!}*'Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was
Salaam'ala Rasulillah'
'As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatahu'

It is obligatory to witness the new moon for establishing certain acts of worship...
If these acts are obligatory, such as Fasting 'Ramadan' & 'Hajj'...
then witnessing the New Moon also becomes obligatory on the Muslim 'Ummah'~{ 'Fard Kifaayah'.}
That is because " what is necessary to fulfill the requirements of an obligation is an obligation itself. "
The 'Sunnah' 'Dua' upon seeing the New Moon..
The Prophet (SallAllahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) taught us the 'Dua' to read when we see the new moon. So make an effort to sight the 'Ramadan' Moon with full attention and eagerness and say this Dua' on sighting the new moon! { In Shaa Allah }

Allaahu 'Akbar, Allaahumma 'ahillahu 'alayna bil'amni wal'eemaani, wassalaamati wal-'Islaami, wattawfeeqi limaa tuhibbu Rabbanaa wa tardhaa, Rabbunaa wa Rabbukallaahu .

Allah is the Greatest. O Allah, let the crescent loom above us in safety, faith, peace, and Islam, and in agreement with all that You love and pleases You. Our Lord and your Lord is Allah."

A Neglected 'Sunnah' ?
It is a part of the beauty of Islam anticipating when Fasting will start. When will 'Eid' be ? This builds up the excitement and love of these blessed times. And there is deepest wisdom in how Allah {Subhaanahu wa Taala} ordained these issues. This was the way of the Prophet (SallAllahu 'Alayhi Wasallam), the 'Sahabah', and the Early generations, (including the Four Imams) Yet, it is sad to see many Muslims getting lost in the fast track world of machines and calculations and neglecting this act of 'Sunnah' ! thus losing out on the chance to earn reward from their Rabb for following the Prophet (SallAllahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) and his guidance...{!}
So work hard to revive the 'Sunnah' of the Prophet
(SallAllahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) and Please don't belittle it.
Practice it yourself, teach it to your children and others.
Reviving aspects of the 'Sunnah' that are being forgotten is one of the most important charitable deeds that a person can do during his lifetime and is a deed that will bring an immense reward...{!}

PROPHET (SallAllahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) said..
'Whoever revives an aspect of my 'Sunnah' that is forgotten after my death, he will have a reward equivalent to that of the people who follow him, without it detracting in the least from their reward.'
(Source: Tirmidhi)

PROPHET (SallAllahu 'Alayhi Wasallam) also said...
'Pay attention to my 'Sunnah' and the way of the 'Rightly guided' haleefahs' after me, adhere to it and hold fast to it.'
{ Source: Saheeh Abi Dawud }

"And he who brings the Truth and he who confirms and supports it, such are the men who do right. They shall have all that they wish for, with their Rabb. Such is the reward of those who do good: o that Allah will remit from them (even) the worst of' their deeds and give them their reward according to the best of what they have done."
{'In Shaa Allah'~ 'Aameen'}
{Source: 'Qur'an'~ Surat Az-Zumar (The Troops) 39~A #'s 33-35~}

My Salaams To All.
"Never Despair Of The Mercy Of Allah"
 Sis Yasmin

Hadith of the Week

Narrated by Anas bin Malik, r.a.:
Allah's Apostle mentioned the greatest sins or he was asked about the greatest sins.
He said, "To join partners in worship with Allah; to kill a soul which Allah has forbidden to kill; and to be undutiful or unkind to one's parents."
The Prophet added,
"Shall I inform you of the biggest of the great sins?
That is the forged statement or the false witness." Shu'ba (the sub-narrator) states that most probably the Prophet said,
"the false witness."

 Islamic Thought

Du'a from Imam Badi Ali
April 16 and 17

As-slamu alaikum.
Do you wonder why Allah gifted us the month of Ramadan, the month of the Qur'an? It is so that He might elevate us and bring us from our isolation to His nearness.

Ramadan is a 30 day school for us. In this month, make everyday count.

You can establish a lot of righteous deeds and habits - just make sure you maintain them after Ramadan.

O Allah guide us to please him this month and every month after. Ameen.

Don't waste the precious time of Ramadan.

Ramadan is not an ordinary month. When you fast, all your senses should fast including your hearing, sight, & tongue.

Don't engage in acts that may spoil your fast.

Don't let the day you fast be the same as the day you don't fast!

May Allah guide us to exert our efforts so that this Ramadan changes us for the better. Ameen.


Turkey & Gaza
April 17.

Turkey's Presidential Spokesperson Ibrahim Kalin on Friday condemned the latest Israeli attack on the Gaza Strip, Anadolu Agency reported.

"We strongly condemn Israel's airstrike on Gaza during the holy month of Ramadan," Kalin posted on Twitter.

He reiterated, according to Anadolu Agency, Turkey's support for the Palestinian nation and called on Israel to "immediately" cease the attacks.

Omer Celik, the ruling Justice and Development Party spokesperson, also took to Twitter to condemn the Israeli attack on the besieged Gaza Strip.

"Israel once again attacked Gaza in the month of Ramadan," he expressed, adding that the attack was unacceptable.

"Israel has shown once again that it does not care about any humanitarian values," Celik wrote, adding that Turkey will never stop supporting the Palestinian people.


When will Canada release its Islamic prisoners? In the rapidly spreading virus in Canada, surely there are grounds for compassionate release.


Uyghur Woman Doctor speaks out.
[Courtesy Japan Forward. Excerpted.April 14]

ISTANBUL, Turkey — A woman doctor from the ethnic Uyghur minority, now exiled in Turkey, painted a vivid picture of the Chinese crackdown on human rights in Xinjiang in an interview with The Sankei Shimbun.

The woman revealed that "on some days there were about 80 surgeries to carry out forced sterilizations," testifying to her own role in this large-scale program carried out in the autonomous region.

The Chinese have denied the forced sterilizations, but the international community, including the European Union and the United States, view it as a case of "genocide."

The doctor, Gülgine, 47, had worked as a gynecologist in the autonomous region of Xinjiang. She immigrated in 2011 to Istanbul, Turkey's largest city, where the interview took place.

"A lot of women were put on the back of a truck and sent to the hospital," she said. "The [sterilization] procedure took about five minutes each, but the women were crying because they did not know what was happening to them."

Gülgine herself carried out sterilizations at a hospital in Urumqi, capital of the autonomous region. Showing pictures of T-shaped and U-shaped intrauterine devices (IUDs), she explained that "these devices were inserted into women's wombs."

Since 2014, the number of residents who were sterilized in the autonomous region had increased rapidly, according to Chinese government statistics. As of 2018, there were about 60,000 men and women who were sterilized by the binding of the seminal duct and fallopian tubes, about 14 times as many as in 2013. Procedures to implant IUDs were performed at a rate of 200,000 to 300,000 people each year. As of 2017, about 3.12 million women had been fitted with this contraceptive device, accounting for 60% of married women of childbearing age.

According to Gülgine, forced infertility probably began systematically in the autonomous region from around 1980. That was a year after China started birth restrictions under the "one child policy."
