Usman, r.a., in some ways the greatest sahabi. Amazing Example of Compassion for Women.

by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

The sahaba [Companions] of the Prophet, pbuh, are most highly praised in the Qur'an above all other humans other than messengers of Allah.
[See 9:100].

From among them the greatest male sahabi was Usman, r.a. In his entire life he made one serious mistake but was specifically forgiven b y Allah Almighty in the Qur'an.

Owing to this one mistake, he has been the target of slander by Agha Khanis and Shias. Human beings are not perfect and if we look at the great achievements of Usman, r,a., only a morally imbalanced person or hate monger would attack him.

Usman, r.a., was among the elite of Makka, very prosperous and rich. Later he used his wealth to support Islam in unequalled generosity.

Only 4 people before Usman, r,a., had accepted Muhammad, pbuh, as the messenger of Allah. His development as a Muslim was steadily forward ; the more he learned, the stronger he became in his faith.

He was part of a powerful tribe, the Ummayads. They saw his rejection of tribal religion and acceptance of Islam as a threat to the unity of the entire tribe. He was abused, mistreated and finally tortured. He stayed firm in his faith.

He was very compassionate and caring towards women. The Prophet, pbuh, knew him as a trustworthy friend and as a result he was married to Ruqayya, r.a., the daughter of Prophet, pbuh.

Owing to the oppression of Muslims by the pagans, the Prophet, pbuh, sent some of the Muslims to Abyssinia [east Africa]. Among them were Usman, r.a., and Ruqayya, r.a. It was a very difficult journey and during migration, the first Islamic migration, Ruqayya, r.a., had a miscarriage.

Later when Ruqayya, r.a., died the Prophet, pbuh, married his second daughter, Umm Kulsum, r.a., to Usman, r.a. She was married to Usman, r.a., from 3 to 9 hijri. When she too died, Usman, r.a., was torn with extreme sorrow. The Prophet, pbuh, loved him so much, he said these famous words:

"If we had a third daughter, we would have given her to you, Usman." {sahih narration by al-Haythami]

This close relationship between the Prophet, pbuh, and Usman, r,a, is explained in a hadith in Bayhaqi's sunan al-Kubra;

"Since Allah created Adam, no one has married two daughters of a prophet except Usman, and it will be so till the Final Hour: Thus he was called the Possessor of the Two Lights [zhun nurayn]."

JI Report.
Why is Imran Khan Boasting?
Corona Virus is Spreading

By Qaiser Sharif

LAHORE: April 26- Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Sirajul Haq has expressed surprise over the prime minister's boasting about the performance of his government, saying the ruling party has given nothing to the masses during last two and half years instead of poverty, inflation and unemployment.

Talking to party leader at Mansoora on Monday, he said the people were desperate due flawed economic policies of this government and wanted to get rid of the set-up as soon as possible.

He said the two major parties in parliament backed this regime instead of fighting for the public cause. He held the former government equally responsible for the plight of the masses.

Sirajul Haq said the prime minister was trying to run the country like an NGO. He said a country could not be run on donations. He said the former and present rulers had failed badly failed to resolve the miseries of the masses instead the ruling elite tried to multiply the problems of the people. He said there was dire need to get rid of the imperialists, feudal lords and agent of the colonial powers. He said the masses should take stand against the corrupt system and voted to power those people who lived among them. He said it was not less than a tragedy that assemblies and political parties were turned into the clubs of the waderas and a common man could not dream to contest the election.

The chief expressed concern over the horrific spread of Covid in the country and lack of facilities at public hospitals. He appealed the people to follow the SOPs and seek Allah Almighty forgiveness to get rid of the pandemic. He also demanded the government not to depend on donations for vaccines instead arrange it on emergency basis.

Osama bin Laden's influence in the Taliban Victory.
[His anniversary]
[New Trend special report]

The latest Taliban victory indicates that Shaykh Osama bin Laden opened the way to endless fighting in Afghanistan and the forthcoming withdrawal of US and NATO forces. Readers might remember that Osama survived the most severe bombing in the Tora Bora area and continued to sometimes lead and often inspire the fighting. The US pressured Pakistan's army to attack [Osama admirers] Sharia support groups in Swat, then all over FATA and finally southern and northern Waziristan. These areas are still occupied by Pak army and face resistance.

Osama fooled the Pakistan army by hiding next to a Pakistani military base.

US forces searched all over the world for Osama. Pakistani military allowed the US to operate in Pakistani air space and finally the US discovered and killed him in Abbotabad. The US knew his influence and would not allow him proper burial. The Pak military even destroyed the house he lived in during his last years. Even then US observers admit that his influence is global among Islamic fighting forces.

Pakistani military allowed US forces to enter Afghanistan through Pakistani land routes and is now allowing NATO to withdraw intact.[with huge profits for the Pak generals.]

This must be the biggest betrayal of the Muslim ummah in all of history

Here is the latest report from Afghanistan: May 2, 2021.

ISLAMABAD - Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan attacked and overran a key army base in southeastern Ghazni province Saturday, capturing dozens of soldiers and killing several others.

The latest attack came on a day when the United States and NATO partners formally began withdrawing their militaries from the country after almost 20 years of war.

Two senior provincial council members told VOA the Afghan army had stationed dozens of its forces at the base outside the provincial capital, also named Ghazni, before the pre-dawn insurgent attack.

Local media reports said the ensuing clashes had lasted several hours and killed at least 17 soldiers.

Afghan army chief, Gen. Mohammad Yasin Zia, who is also the acting defense minister, confirmed to reporters in Kabul the fall of the security installation to insurgents, but he shared no further details.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said its fighters had also seized heavy and light weaponry besides capturing 25 army personnel and killing "a number of others." [VOA]

30 Apr 2021 [al-Jazeera]

The United Nations human rights office (OHCHR) has said it is "disturbed" by the "unnecessary and disproportionate" force used by Bahraini police to dismantle a peaceful sit-in at the country's main prison earlier this month.

At a press briefing on Friday, Marta Hurtado, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, called on Bahrain's government to immediately launch a "thorough and effective" investigation into the violent repression of the sit-in at Jau prison, located south of the capital, Manama, on April 17.

She cited accounts by witnesses who reported that "special forces threw stun grenades and beat detainees on their heads, badly injuring many of them".

Hurtado also said authorities reportedly took 33 protesters "to another building in the prison, where they are being kept incommunicado, and have been unable to make contact with families or lawyers, in violation of both national and international law".

The inmates had been protesting against detention conditions, in particular, the lack of access to medical treatment.

Tensions had been rising in the prison since an outbreak of COVID-19 last month, which authorities said had been contained.

Horrific Crime against Peaceful Islamic Opponents.
Dictator General Sissi has lost all sense of Humanity & Decency.
[Middle East Monitor. April 27]

Seventeen Egyptian prisoners, including Sheikh Abdel Halim Gabreel, an 80-year-old Qur'an teacher, were executed yesterday, on fabricated charges in the case known in the media as the "Kerdasa massacre". Regime authorities carried out the death sentences at dawn in Wadi Al-Natrun Prison in complete secrecy and without prior notification to the families.

The 16 other prisoners that were executed were: Walid Saad Abu Omaira, Mohamed Rizk Abuel Soud, Ashraf Sayed Rizk, Ahmed Owes Hussein, Essam Abdel Moety, Ahmed Abdel Nabi, Badr Abdel Nabi, Qutb Sayed Qutb, Omar Mohamed El-Sayed, Izzat Al-Attar, Ali El-Sayed Kenawy, Abdullah Saeed, Mohamed Yousef Al-Seidi, Ahmed Abdel Salam, Arafat Abdel Latif, Mustafa El-Sayed El-Kerfesh.

All 17 men were convicted of killing 13 policemen during a 2013 attack on a police station in the Giza suburb of Kerdasa in 2013.

However serious questions marks were raised over their conviction. Arab Organisation for Human Rights UK (AOHR) confirmed that the identity of those who raided the police station in question remains unknown - the state has not presented any concrete evidence linking the men executed (or any of those charged) with the raid. Many of their testimonies were extracted under tortured, and are therefore inadmissible, and that the first trial was quashed because of the state's use of torture.

The conviction of Gabreel in particular has raised serious concerns. Not only does the 80-year-old suffer from serious health conditions that would make it impossible for him to have taken part in a deadly raid, but eyewitnesses have also presented testimonies stating that he was not among those originally present near the Kerdasa police station on the day of the incident.

Moreover, the prosecution's witnesses denied signing on the written statements confirming Gabreel's participation in the events. Nevertheless, the court ignored these documents and decided to execute him, said AOHR detailing the background of his case. His lawyer said he never committed any criminal act throughout his life and that he suffers from psoriasis and cannot walk long distances, which makes it impossible for him to participate in any criminal operations.

The executions, which are part of a wider campaign of repression against all critics of the Egyptian regime, have been met with condemnation. "These executions in these blessed days indicate the extent to which this regime has reached in terms of criminality, recklessness, and defiance of all standards and values upon which societies are built," said Dr Maha Azzam, president of the Egyptian Revolutionary Council in a joint statement with the Egyptian People's Democratic Party

Their statement called on the masses of Egyptians to continue peaceful resistance and employ methods of civil disobedience and revolution against the military coup led by President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi.

In a sign of the growing concern over rising authoritarianism in Egypt, last week a coalition of 14 of the leading human rights groups and NGOs, including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, called on the US not to waive the human rights conditions that apply to the $1.3 billion aid package to Egypt.

Is Police Reform Possible with Existing Concepts?
by Sis. Aisha
[Jamaat al-Muslimeen]

On April 21, 2021, Ma'khia Bryant, 16 years old, was shot and killed by Officer Nicholas Reardon during a fight with two other girls. This shooting occurred a few hours after the guilty verdict against former officer Derek Chauvin in George Floyd's murder. There were six murders of unarmed Black people by law enforcement within a few days after the guilty verdict.

Could this be revenge by law enforcement for this guilty verdict? It has happened before. Law enforcement had to show its power while a black man was President. The message sent was that the white supremacy rules, even when a Black person is President. Unfortunately, President Barack Obama caved and behaved more like a White House butler than the leader of the Free World, which is supposedly a highly coveted position.

What do former law enforcement officers think?

I was watching "Black Men Screaming," a public access cable show, and although it is curiously titled, I watched for a few minutes. The panel consisted of Terrance Wansley, a retired NYPD Detective, and Darryl Hell, a composer. Terrance Wansley stated that the policeman's power lies in the public's having to comply with his demands unless it is to do something criminal. He said that not complying with an officer's command should be decriminalized. Many shootings are justified by high-ranking officers simply because the suspect did not comply.

The second issue is with the phrase, "excessive force." Community Cop Show host Michael Greys says that excessive force is not the real issue. The question is if the measures taken were "necessary." Excessive force means that the act was the normal course of action taken but, more than needed. However, questioning the necessity of an act forces people to determine if it should have taken place at all.

The third issue is the false belief that the response to police criminality is to re-train police officers. Community Cop Show host Noel Leader says it angers him when people accept this proposal. Leader says the real issue is that police officers commit crimes with impunity, which go unpunished! How would re-training police officers prevent them from committing crimes? He says what would make police officers reconsider committing crimes is seeing criminal cops severely punished.

The consensus among Black law enforcement officers is for the public to hold elected officials, including district attorneys, accountable for their lack of action against criminal cops. For instance, in New York City, it is illegal for anyone to use the f_bomb against a police officer. Mayor Rudolph Giuliani pushed this legislation.

Police officers have too much arbitrary power but, they have even more support from politicians, from all of racial backgrounds. The protests need to lead to city hall, not the precincts.

Who will Police the Police?

After David Crawford left his job as the police chief of Laurel, Md., in 2010, he spent the next decade nursing grudges and setting fires to punish others, investigators say. In a stunning turn of events, Crawford, a law enforcement veteran, is now under arrest and facing dozens of charges in connection to at least 12 fires at homes, garages and cars.

Crawford was a "serial arsonist," according to the Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department. It adds that investigators' suspicions about Crawford were confirmed when a search of his house turned up a " target list" of fire victims on his cellphone.

Crawford, 69, was denied bond at a bail review hearing Thursday morning, Howard County Police Chief Lisa Myers said at a news conference.

The charges against Crawford include 12 counts of 1st-degree attempted murder - because many of the victims were clearly at home when the fires were lit, officials say.

Former Laurel, Md., police chief David Crawford is under arrest, facing dozens of criminal charges related to a string of arson attacks on homes and garages.

"All of the fires were at night. In six of the arsons, the victim and their families were inside their homes asleep," the Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department said.

Taken together, the arson victims map out elements of Crawford's personal and professional life. They include another former Laurel police chief and two other former law enforcement officials, along with a former city official in Laurel. Also on the list: a pair of Crawford's relatives, two of his former doctors and someone who lives in his neighborhood.

One man was targeted three separate times: a fire hit his townhouse in Clarksburg, Md., on Sept. 5 , 2016, then another struck the same address one year later. After the man and his wife moved to a new home in the same town, a third fire was lit in November of 2020, according to the charging document.

The records identify the man as Crawford's stepson, adding that the two had a "strained" relationship that was marked by arguments.

Reward of Feeding a Fasting Person
The PROPHET ﷺ said...
" Whoever feeds the person who is breaking his fast, he will have his reward (for his fasting) without decreasing anything from the reward of the fasting person."
[Source: Al-Tirmidhi, Ibn Maajah - Classed as Sahih by al Albaani]
ALLAH~ [May HE be glorified and exalted] says...
'one of the characteristics of the believers who deserve Paradise is that they feed others...'{!}
ALLAH ~ [Azza wa Jal ] says ~ "And they give food, in spite of their love for it [or for the love of Him]~ to the ' Miskeen' [the Poor]~ the Orphan, and the Captive, saying...
'We feed you seeking Allah's ( عزّ وجلّ‎) Countenance only.
We wish for no reward, nor thanks from you.
'Verily, We fear from our Lord a Day, hard and distressful, that will make the faces look horrible [from extreme dislike to it]..'
So Allah saved them from the evil of that Day, and gave them 'Nadhrah' [a light of beauty] and joy .
And their recompense shall be Paradise, and silken garments, because they were patient"
[Source: 'Qur'an'~ Surat 'Al-Insaan' ~76~ A #'s 8 - 12]
The Prophet [Sal Allahu 'Alaihi wa Sallam]
informed us in the 'Hadith' above that whoever gives food to a fasting person to break his Fast will have a reward like his without the fasting person losing any reward...{!}
So, during the month of 'Ramadan' [and even during other months] it is very virtuous and rewarding to feed others who are breaking their fast...{!}
It is also very virtuous and rewarding to feed others in general. The PROPHET ﷺ said....
" You will not enter Paradise until you truly believe, and you will not truly believe until you love one another."
[Source ~ Sahih Muslim]

Ibn Rajab (Allah have mercy upon him) said in al-Fath (1/43):
"The 'Hadith' (mentioned above) makes the connection between feeding others and spreading 'Salaam' because this combines two good actions in both word and deed, which is perfect good treatment ('Ihsan') Indeed, this is the best thing that one can do in Islam after the obligatory duties."

A Little Note...
Many 'Hadiths' are reported regarding the virtues of providing food for others to break their fast. Feeding others in general brings a great reward to the one who does it...!
ALLAH~ (May HE be glorified and exalted ) states...
that one of the characteristics of the Believers who deserve Paradise is that they feed others.

Hadith of the Week

Narrated by Anas, r.a.:
A funeral procession passed in front of the Prophet and the people praised the deceased. The Prophet said, "It has been affirmed (Paradise)." Then another funeral procession passed by and the people talked badly of the deceased. The Prophet said, "It has been affirmed (Hell)." Allah's Apostle was asked, "O Allah's Apostle! You said it has been affirmed for both?" The Prophet said, "The testimony of the people (is accepted), (for) the believers are Allah's witnesses on the earth."

Protesters shot dead by police at Bangladesh power plant

The incident took place on Saturday as workers were demanding a pay rise at a Chinese-backed coal-fired power plant.

17 Apr 2021
At least five people have been shot dead and dozens injured when police opened fire at workers demanding a pay rise at a Chinese-backed coal-fired power plant in southeast Bangladesh.

They were protesting over unpaid wages, working hours and alleged discrimination.

Azizul Islam, Banshkhali police chief, said about 2,000 protesters threw rocks and bricks at police, who responded with gunfire on Saturday.

Four bodies with bullet wounds were taken to Banshkhali's main hospital, a doctor there said, adding that 12 wounded were being treated.

Police confirmed the death of one more protester and injuries to 19 people, including three policemen, who were taken to a hospital in Chittagong.

The $2.4bn power plant, located 265km (165 miles) southeast of the capital, Dhaka, is a main source of foreign investment in Bangladesh, and one of a series of projects Beijing is pushing to cultivate closer ties with Dhaka.

Covid Disaster Surging in India.
World's Worst Outbreak.

[Via Dr. T.]

A fire in a COVID-19 hospital ward in western India killed 18 patients as the country grappling with the world's worst outbreak stepped up a vaccination drive for all adults even though some states say they do not have enough jabs.

India on Saturday set yet another daily global record with 401,993 new coronavirus cases, taking its tally to more than 19.1 million. Another 3,523 people died in the past 24 hours, raising the overall deaths to 211,853, according to the health ministry. Experts believe both figures are an undercount.

The fire broke out in a COVID-19 ward on the ground floor and was extinguished within an hour, police said. The cause was being investigated.

It started around midnight in the intensive care ward of the Patel Welfare Hospital, a designated COVID-19 facility, in Bharuch city, 185km (115 miles) north of the state's main commercial city, Ahmedabad.

"Sixteen patients and two staff members have died in the fire. Twelve of them died due to fire and smoke," said RV Chudasama, a superintendent of police in Bharuch. "Preliminary investigation shows the fire was caused because of a short circuit."

But Dushyant Patel, a state government official, said leakage from an oxygen cylinder in the intensive care unit started the blaze.

Local news channels showed footage of a hospital ward completely destroyed.

"There was a lot of chaos because of the scale of the fire ... Hospital staff rushed my family members out from the ward and we used our car to take them to another hospital," said Parth Gandhi, whose two relatives, both COVID-19 patients, escaped the disaster.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in a tweet he was "pained by the loss of lives due to a fire at a hospital in Bharuch".


Rallies for Jerusalem and al-Aqsa
Middle East Monitor

Mass rallies were held in the besieged Gaza Strip today in support of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque after the Muslim Holy site witness a week of Israeli offensives and attacks.

Protesters also condemned Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' decision to postpone the parliamentary election which was due to take place on 22 May.

Participants raised the Hamas flag and affirmed their support for Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa, and Palestinian Mourabitoun who confront the daily Israeli attacks against the holy sites.

Hamas leader Mushir Al-Masri said the Palestinian people are facing a chapter in its ongoing battle with the occupation in Jerusalem, indicating that this battle targets the existence and identity of Jerusalem, and the attempt to displace its people, desecrate its sanctities, Judaise it and abolish its Arab identity.

Al-Masri praised the victory of the Jerusalemites who revolted against the occupation and succeeded in removing barriers the occupation had placed at Damascus Gate.

This victory, he continued, should have boosted the Palestinian Authority to impose "the national electoral agenda and will on the enemy and not to flee".

He accused Abbas of going against the will of the people by stopping the election.


She escaped from China with help from her well-placed Pakistani husband.

For Dawut, like many others, the ordeal started with a call from the police.

In March 2018, she was at home in Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang, when she was told to report to a local station.

She was led to a cold basement and tied by her wrists and ankles to a metal chair. Over the next 24 hours, she was interrogated about calls to and from her cellphone and about bank transactions she had made, according to her account.

After a day, she was moved — black hood over her head, still shackled — in a police van to a medical center and then on to a detention camp. She said she was forced to change into prison clothes in front of men.

Eventually, she was taken to a cramped cell filled with so many women that they had to lie down in shifts, she said. By day, they were forced to recite propaganda and praise Chinese leader Xi.

She was held for 62 days, a stay that might have been longer, she believes, had her husband not been pressing Pakistani diplomats for help to obtain her release.

When she was let go, she was forced to sign documents agreeing not to practice her religion and not to tell anyone what had happened in the camp.

After her detention, she was forced to pay a fine of more than $2,500 for breaking China's family planning rules by having three, not two, children.

She was then told the government was offering her a free, surgical sterilization — a procedure she did not want but was terrified to refuse lest she be detained again.

On Oct. 22, 2018, a local official escorted her to the hospital, and she underwent surgery.

Dawut wept recalling the operation and thinking of the fourth child she longed for but would never have. "They want the extinction of Uighurs," she said.
