 Dr Kaukab Siddique

Islam and the rulers of Bahrain, UAE, Saudi, Egypt Jordan, Syria who are cooperating with Israel and other Oppressors.
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

Islam Has declared Haram [forbidden] all cooperation, even the slightest, with Oppressors

Officials cannot continue to cooperate with the oppressors and still claim to be Muslims. In Islam there are no two views on this:

"And incline not to those who are oppressors or the fire will touch you, and ye will have no protectors other than Allah, nor shall ye be helped." [The Qur'an 11:113]

In Islam, the question of cooperating with non-Muslim rulers who oppress Muslims, such as in Iraq, Palestine, Somalia and Nigeria, simply does not arise. However, there are clear texts from the Prophet, pbuh, and his Companions, r.a., which make very clear the meaning of 11:113 as regards Muslim rulers:

"There will be rulers after me who will tell lies and oppress people. One who calls their lies 'truth' and and helps them [in any way] in their oppression, such a one is not of me and I have nothing to do with him and he will not be anywhere near me at the Spring of Abundance (on the Day of Judgement)." [Prophet Muhammad pbuh, Hadith in the collections of Nasai, Tirmidhi and Hakim, narrated by Ka'ab bin 'Ujra, r.a.]

"...One who approaches human rulers gets involved in Fitna [disruption and turmoil.]" [Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, Sunan of Abu Dawud, narrated by ibn Abbas, r.a.]

Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, said:"In the future there will be rulers over you, some whom you will know and some whom you won't. One who stays away completely from rulers will be forgiven by Allah, one who looks at them and considers them bad will be saved [by Allah], but one who accepts them and follows them, Allah Almighty will remove him from His Mercy." A person asked: Should we do jihad against such rulers? The Prophet, pbuh, replied: Not as long as they establish worship of Allah. [Hadith, Sahih of Muslim]

Let us look briefly at the establishment of powerful rulers. Should we cooperate with them because they are powerful and can harm us and we cannot fight them? What did the outstanding scholars of Islam say when the non-Islamic rulers established themselves. Here is a sample:

Saeed bin al-Musayyeb, one of the greatest scholars of Hadith in the classical era of Islam said: When you see a person who knows Islam, hanging around rulers, shun him because he is thief.

'Auzai, another giant of Islamic learning from the golden era of Islam said: With Allah Almighty, there is none worse than one who knows Islam yet goes to the rulers.

Makhul, another great early narrator of Hadith said: One who learns the Qur'an and gains knowledge of Islam and then approaches the ruler out of greed and to flatter, every step towards the ruler takes him towards the fire of hell.



Pakistani Female Judge Uncovered the Suffering of helpless Women and the corruption of General Musharraf's regime.

[With thanks to Dr.T] [129000 views]

We have received a video of Justice Nasira Iqbal.

She narrates the suffering of three girls who were sent into prostitution by their own mother.

A young man saved one girl and was accused of kidnaping her.

Judge Nasira uncovered the real story and gradually found the other two girls as well.

She wanted to dismantle the entire mafia but the police helped them to escape. The police she says was integral to the corruption.

The judge narrates how the pro-American dictator of Pakistan, General Musharraf shut down the judicial system by bringing charges against judges and imprisoning the most outstanding ones.

The people in the justice system came out to protest in the streets. Political cases against the opponents of the regime were covered up as anti-terrorism charges and opponents could not be released.

After a long struggle, General Musharraf was defeated and finally left Pakistan.

[Judge Nasira was married to the late Javed Iqbal.]

Pakistan: A case of Ideological meltdown

The betrayal
After the conquest of Delhi in the late 12th century by Muhammad Ghouri, the creation of Pakistan is the most important single event in the Muslim history of South Asia. Pakistan came into being not only as a state but as an embodiment of a concept, a faith, a philosophy, and an aspiration.

The inspiration for such a great achievement came from no other source or individual but from the Holy Qur'an -the fundamental source of all inspirations of the Muslims. It was another great leader like Qaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah who could successfully lead to another great victory for the South Asian Muslims.

After a long colonial occupation, the degenerated and demoralized Muslim ummah could find a ray of new hope in the creation of this new country. It went like thrills of astounding victory all over the Islamic world; and was indeed a remarkable achievement of the Indian Muslims. While the Muslims of other parts of the world were awfully disintegrated and Islam's Arab heartland got fragmented into 22 pieces, the Indian Muslims showed an astonishing spirit of pan-Islamic brotherhood and unity. It wasn't any tribal, racial, geographical or linguistic affinity or any secular ideology that helped create this largest Muslim country in the contemporary world. It was only Islam that could galvanize the Muslim population of the whole of South Asia to overcome the differences entrenched in languages, dress codes, food habits, lifestyles, and many geo-climatological specifics.

They could establish an Islamic state despite the joint opposition of the British colonialists and the Hindu majority. It is also an article of Muslims' faith that they can't attain such success on their own; all successes come only from Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'ala.-(Surah Anfal verse 10). It was indeed a great blessing from Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'ala that was bestowed on them for their grand pan-Islamic unity.

But the immense opportunity that came with the creation of Pakistan also started quickly disappearing. The country was occupied by a clique of people who showed the ugliest betrayal against the cause of its existence. The betrayal is against Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'ala, His sharia, and the philosophy of pan-Islamic brotherhood. The ideology that helped create Pakistan is no more welcome in its political and intellectual circles. The country made another history. It is the history of disunity and hatred based on ethnic, linguistic, and regional affinity.

The pre-1947 pan-Islamic brotherhood is almost dead and Islamisation of the state is no longer a priority. Instead, secularisation of education, state and culture took its place. The people got more interested in material gains and more focussed on provincial matters, local tradition, feudal politics, and party interests. They want more foreign money and investment only to enhance their material affluence and wellbeing.

Implementation of sharia or Islamisation of state and education is perceived as an obstacle to the material agenda -as it is unacceptable to the West. Hence to impress the country's foreign stakeholders, de-Islamisation and secularisation achieved a new level of priority and largely eroded the binding glue of pan-Islamism from people's life. So the country is politically divided along the provincial borders as was in 1971. So the opportunity of an Islamic renaissance which was in high hype in 1947 is now in deep recession. Instead of following the Qur'anic road map, the country's political leaders and the army generals are more eager to be the partners of the US-led coalition's war on Islam. Because it generates foreign money and ensures a pompous life overseas. So, during the President Musharraf era, the US drones were allowed the access in the Pakistani air space to kill the innocent Muslims in neighboring Afghanistan and also inside its own territory. The US drones launched more than 400 drone attacks on Pakistani soil and killed 1300 people. Of them, 90 percent are innocent. (Source: Al-Jazeera English TV, 24/10/2015). It is claimed that about 70 thousand Pakistanis have died in the US's war on Islam. The US Cobra helicopter could violate the border and kill anybody they wish -as they did in Abbottabad. The Pakistan Army -boastful of their nuclear arsenal could stand only as bystanders. If the US government has an iota of trust in the Pakistan government and the Army, would have asked the Pakistan Army to conduct the operation in Abbottabad instead of violating Pakistan's sovereign air space. Pakistan is relevant to the US only to use it as a stooge to execute its agenda. Is it so difficult to understand? The country that sacrifices its ideological identity also loses its self-esteem and fails to understand very simple things.

The evils of the colonial occupation
The long rule of the colonialists in South Asia helped generate a huge army of ideological and cultural converts. The project of religious conversion of the European invaders failed badly, but the ideological and cultural conversion worked tremendously. These converts proved no less inimical against Islam than the religious converts. They worked as mercenaries to prolong colonial rule in the Indian subcontinent. More than two hundred thousand Indian Muslims even fought wars in Iraq, Syria, and Palestine to bring those Muslim lands under the British occupation. The colonialists have withdrawn their own army but not the army of these ideological and cultural converts. As a result, although the colonial occupation formally ended in 1947, their ideological and cultural occupation continued. The country's cantonments, the judiciary, and the bureaucracy still remain the occupied territory of these cultural and ideological converts. Islam with its fundamental concepts like sharia, hudud, jihad, shura, khilafa had little access to these occupied territories. The drinking of wine in officers' mess in the cantonment was only stopped by General Zia ul Haq in the late seventies. The kuffar law of the British still rules the Pakistani judiciary; hence illicit sex (jinna) is not punishable if done with consent.

Such occupation of Pakistan by the ideological and cultural converts -the homegrown invaders restricts the practice of full Islam, thereby prohibits the local citizens from becoming complete Muslims. Whereas to please Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'ala, a Muslim needs to have a full submission. "Udkhul fis silm'e ka'affa" is the Qur'anic decree. Hence incomplete submission is not a sign of full belief in Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'ala, rather a marker of rebellion. Such a rebellion makes it impossible to save a soul from the hellfire. Therefore how a true Muslim dare oppose the implementation of sharia? It is indeed the greatest and the ugliest calamity of kuffar rule that sharia stays unpractised in a Muslim country. Like many obligatory rituals,

it is an Islamic obligation that a Muslim must practice sharia law. Any non-compliance with sharia makes a person kafir (nonbeliever), zaleem (oppressor), and a fasiq (sinner) -as revealed in Holy Qur'an in Surah Maida in verses 44, 45, and 47. Therefore, can a Muslim ever accept any non-sharia law? It is like accepting idolatry. This is why before the advent of colonial rule, all the Muslim countries had sharia law. Apart from sharia, the Muslims were not accustomed to any other law. For more than six hundred years of Muslim rule, therefore the Indian judiciary ran on sharia law. The famous Fatawa-e-Alamgiri is the collection of such laws. But the colonialists dismantled the whole system; not only they took away political liberty, but also put an embargo on the practice of Islam in the court. Thus the colonial occupation of India caused the ugliest catastrophe for the Muslims. It put a bar against becoming a full Muslim. Hence the Muslims didn't have any choice but to end the kuffar occupation and create an Islamic state.

Parents Protest Against Forced Medication.
Hadith opposes it.

by Sis. Aisha
[Jamaat al-Muslimeen]

I already have an article about the protests against COVID-19 Vaccine. I wasn't going to touch the exoneration of Malcolm Shabazz's accused killers. That Netflix documentary is being credited with this effort, which has been going on for decades! They knew then that these brothers were innocent but, most importantly, the identity of the real killers.

"We put medicine in one side of his mouth but he started waving at us not to insert the medicine into his mouth. We said, "He dislikes the medicine as a patient usually does." But when he came to his senses he said, "Did I not forbid you to put medicine [by force] in the side of my mouth?" We replied, "We thought it was just because a patient usually dislikes medicine." He said, "There is none who is in the house except that they will be forced to take medicine in the side of their mouth while I am watching, except Al-'Abbās, for he had not witnessed your deed." (Al-Bukhārī (no. 5712) reported that Ā'ishah (radiyallāhu 'anhā)

On November 14th, there was a protest in the Bronx, organized by fully-vaccinated Republican candidate for New York governor Rob Astorino. Over 100 protesters, including vaccinated parents, were present. But, the purpose of the protest was to tell New York State to leave the decision-making to the parents where their children's welfare is concerned. The protesters stressed that it was an anti-mandate protest, not anti-vaccine.

Many of the parents held hand-made posters, one of which read, "My child, my choice." However, the poster with a swastika and hypodermic needle titled, "Crimes against humanity," is the one that drew Zionist attention. New York Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz, who is Jewish, introduced the bill requiring children to be vaccinated in order to attend school, including daycare.

There are many people who consider these government mandates and lockdowns fascist. Nazi Germany was considered a fascist government. Most notable about Nazi Germany were the Jews being forced to wear the Star of David to identify themselves. Today, in post-COVID-19 America, you have vaccinated people being forced to identify themselves with a COVID-19 vaccination card just to gain access to certain places or events. The mainstream media simply calls these measures unprecedented but, many others see it as totalitarian.

But, why were some people so offended by this swastika poster? This poster was comparing these COVID-19 mandates to Naziism. Zionists claim to have been the only victims of Naziism and want everyone to believe that the Holocaust was the world's only example of modern-day oppression. Zionist culture stresses victimhood. And they claim, with pride, that they are the world's saddest, most poorly treated people on Earth. They are the only true victims. As victims, they don't like any competition!

There are a few hadiths against the forcing of medication on the sick, regardless of its benefits to the patient. The oppressor subdues the adults then, makes his move against the children. It is un-Islamic to force people, physically or by law, to take any form of medicine.
Unfortunately, people who are skeptical of the COVID-19 vaccine are being associated with right-wing conservatives. Vaccination status is being politicized. A new Civil War is emerging where you have those who are vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine against those who are not. At least, this is how the media is trying to make it seem. In spite of unfair criticism from the mainstream media and insults from celebrities, these anti-mandate protests are becoming more frequent.

Malcolm X Mystery Murder Still not Solved?
[Courtesy Slate]

Now the inaugural executive director of the Lawrenceville School's Hutchins Center for Race and Social Justice, Ali argues that the mystery of Malcolm's death is far from solved. We talked about why he always firmly believed in the innocence of the exonerated men, what other questions arise from this reversal, his theories on why the courts rushed their convictions through, and the consequences this reversal will have for Malcolm X's legacy.

Our conversation has been edited and condensed for clarity.

Aymann Ismail: How big of a deal is this week's news for people who closely follow the life and death of Malcolm X, like you?

Zaheer Ali: I think it would be a mistake to frame this new development as a resolution of this case. I think it's important that these two men—men that many people, activists, students, scholars, have believed to be innocent—that their innocence be finally admitted by the state. What [the development] now raises are the questions: One, who is responsible? And two, why, given some of the evidence that the state and various law enforcement agencies had at the time that pointed in another direction, did they seek to quickly wrap up this case with the prosecution of these two men? Was it an act of misdirection? Was it an act of protecting assets? Was it to deflect attention away from other parties that might have been involved?

To me, this is not the closing of the case. This, to me, begs for a reopening of the case. This is justice delayed for 55 years. I don't know how one makes up for this. Only Muhammad Abdul Aziz, or Norman Butler, is still alive, but you've had families and communities that have been harmed for this. Where is accountability for the state and law enforcement's role in, at the very least, mishandling the investigation and the trial? I appreciate the district attorney's office (and of course it's a different district attorney, but it's the same office) acknowledging that this was an error and moving to exonerate these two men. But that to me is not accountability.

I read that the innocence of the two men convicted was already known and widespread among Malcolm X scholars. Did you encounter that theory early on in your time studying his life? Did you believe it right away?

The first time I encountered the details around the assassination, which would've been in the early '90s, I knew that there were inconsistencies. I knew that there wasn't even circumstantial evidence that placed them at the scene of the crime. At that time I didn't have any more details. I knew that they were not picked up at the scene of the crime, but many days later. That they had alibis for their whereabouts on the day that Malcolm was killed. And the reason why they were convicted, from what I discerned at the time, was some eyewitness testimony, which was inconsistent across the board. There seemed to be a desire on the part of the prosecution to wrap this up in a neat little bow: The people from the mosque that Malcolm left were the people who came after him.

And that to me was just not sufficient in terms of explaining how these men would've been involved. There were people who were with Malcolm who came from that same mosque who would have recognized them [at the scene]. This was to me a case, for the state, of Let us just find some people to wrap this case up. We really don't want to dig too deep because we are afraid of what we might find. Or maybe we've been told not to go there. We do know that both the FBI and NYPD withheld evidence that could have led to their exoneration.

News played this out as gang violence, turf warfare between two rival groups. That is how this gets framed. And I do think it was in the interest of the state to frame it this way, in order to neutralize the impact that both Malcolm and the Nation of Islam were having on Black communities.

I worked with the late Manning Marable as part of his Malcolm X Project. In his biography, Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention, Marable was able to pull together many of the threads that had been woven by previous scholars. Marable was the first person to really go through the DA's case file [on the shooting] that had been languishing in the municipal archives until one of his researchers found it and organized it. Many of the doubts that people had became validated upon reviewing some of the inconsistencies in the investigation. Then certainly when Marable's book got published in 2011, he brought these questions to the surface again.

You can go far back as George Breitman's The Assassination of Malcolm X, first published in 1969, that raised these questions [about the guilt of the two men]. You can go as far back as Peter Goldman's The Death and Life of Malcolm X, from 1973, where he begins to explore it. At one point, the two men [convicted of the crime] had hired William Kunstler, who's this famous New York-based attorney known for taking unpopular cases that he believed represented miscarriages of justice. And William Kunstler tried to reopen the case in 1977 or '78.

So this has been an ongoing thing, but we know that sometimes this just remains the domain of specialists and hobbyists and devoted scholars. And what the documentary did was bring many of these threads and unravel them to a much wider audience, making them just unavoidable. And it can, in really visceral ways, illustrate the urgency of redressing this issue, by focusing on the sense of loss, the sense of betrayal, the questions that people had about how this case was mishandled.

It's not just in this instance. We've seen the New York Times' documentary on Britney Spears, how that mobilized people around her case. I think of the movie Judas and the Black Messiah, how people were so shocked by that [story of the assassination of Fred Hampton]. And that's a history that is well established. I think there is something about the medium—storytelling in that format, given the nature of how we receive information in this current moment, how powerful that is to move people, and then for those people to move the state.

What other questions do you have about what happened that day, and in the days leading to Malcolm's death?

I don't have new questions. I just have questions that remain unanswered. We don't have an answer from the FBI about the tens of thousands of pages of redacted documents and files they have on Malcolm and on the Nation of Islam and on Muslim Mosque Inc. [one organization Malcolm founded after leaving the Nation of Islam] and on Afro-American Unity [a second such organization] and on many of the people whose lives he shaped and encountered. We have the Manhattan DA saying, These two men didn't do it.

So then my question is, well, who did it? And why have they not been brought to justice? Why did y'all withhold evidence? Why was there no police detail? The day that Malcolm was killed, there was a noticeable absence of police presence. We know that there were also a number of undercover officers. There are all of these questions that remain unanswered.

Will this change in Malcolm X's official history alter his legacy in any way?

I think it makes it an even stronger case for the power that Malcolm represented to challenge the system. A system that, even after he was killed, worked to neutralize his legacy through misdirection, malfeasance, and corruption. There was a community-based understanding of what went down, and the media didn't carry it. Maybe people didn't believe it. Law enforcement, of course, didn't take it seriously at the time, but there have been some elders and pioneers who held close to their heart that one day we would be a little bit closer to the truth. We don't have the full truth yet, but we are closer to it.

Hadith of the Week

Narrated by Abu Huraira, r.a.
Allah's Apostle said,
"Whoever has oppressed another person concerning his reputation or anything else, he should beg him to forgive him before the Day of Resurrection when there will be no money (to compensate for wrong deeds), but if he has good deeds, those good deeds will be taken from him according to his oppression which he has done, and if he has no good deeds, the sins of the oppressed person will be loaded on him."

The Door of Repentance

As-slamu alaikum,
Allah Almighty says:
"اِنَّ اللّٰهَ يُحِبُّ التَّوَّ›بِيۡنَ وَيُحِبّ¥ الۡمُتَط¤هِّرِيۡنɦ‏.."
"Truly, Allah loves those who repent, and He loves those who cleanse themselves."

The doors of repentance are always open. Therefore, don't delay your repentance in a hope of tomorrow, as tomorrow is uncertain.

Repent now and make it a habit to ask Allah's forgiveness by reciting "Astaghfirullah".

Oh Allah! You are Forgiving and love forgiveness so forgive me. Ameen..


Ignoring Palestine, WHYY [NPR] regurgitates 75 Year old anti-German War Gossip

[Note from Kaukiab Siddique]

WHYY is churning out anti-German war time propaganda as if the war is still going on! It is public radio but they never allow any opposing views.

Revisionists have shown that there are no documents which would support the idea that Germany wanted to exterminate "God's Chosen People."

They never mention the destruction of German cities and the mass rape of German women by the victors.

Why this propaganda about 80 years after the war ended? It is Indirect support for the Zionist genocide of Palestinians and the military occupation of a Muslim country.

Read the research of Germar Rudolf about the extermination myths. I can send you a complimentary copy.

Israel is also a leader in support of LGBTQ which is being used to undermine Christian and Islamic values.

America :
Any Surprise Here?


After hurling accusations at China for committing some of the most gruesome crimes against humanity since slavery and the Holocaust, the United States now admits to permitting precisely zero Uyghur Muslim refugees within its borders (via Time).

As a point of reference, the U.S. government dropped a record-breaking 7,423 bombs on Afghanistan in 2019 (via The Guardian). This was done under the banner of liberating Muslims from Taliban rule. Yet, when liberating Muslims becomes a matter of opening borders and providing a safe haven for refugees fleeing genocide, suddenly the matter is covered in bureaucratic red tape.

Experts give a variety of excuses for refusing Muslim Uyghur refugees. Some believe the refugee system lacks accessibility. Others presume it is a matter of fear of retaliation from the Chinese government. To make matters worse, other countries have attempted to safely house Uyghur refugees, only to later return these individuals to the hands of their oppressors. Refugees who left China and then were later returned are now rumored to have mysteriously disappeared, leaving behind them a cloud of panic and uncertainty.

Maya Wang of Human Rights Watch says, "For Uyghurs, there is really nowhere for them to go." In this is a message for all of humanity and a warning for those who are paying attention.

 Remember Prisoners

Peaceful Resistance
Petition with 750 Signatures Right Up to Dr. Aafia's Prison and message to local Paper.

The following is my letter to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, written shortly after I ran the Fort Worth Marathon for #FreeAafiaSiddiqui, then visited FMC Carswell to deliver my petition to the warden. I was accompanied on both ventures by the indomitable Saleema Gul. Unfortunately, the Star-Telegram letter was not published.

To: The Editor
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram
I wonder how many Fort Worth residents realize their town houses a prisoner whom hundreds of thousands worldwide view as a political prisoner. Dr. Aafia Siddiqui is serving an 86-year sentence at FMC Carswell for a putative crime in which no one was killed or injured. This past Sunday, I ran the Fort Worth Marathon to draw attention to her case. It's a case which former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark (himself a native of the DFW area) characterized as "the worst case of individual injustice I have ever witnessed."

Like Aafia, I hail from Pakistan, a country which boasts few women marathoners. So, in that regard, I am a rarity. Leading up to the Fort Worth Marathon, I'd done 47 marathons in 14 different states. Previously, I'd done two Boston marathons, two Chicago marathons, and a Washington, DC marathon--all to protest Dr. Siddiqui's plight. Fort Worth was my 48th full marathon, and the 6th one which I dedicated to Aafia.

It seemed particularly appropriate, given that Aafia had been attacked 2 1/2 months prior by another inmate at FMC Carswell who smashed a coffee mug on her face, burning and cutting her. Afterwards, the prison administration did nothing to protect Aafia, placing her in solitary confinement, as if she were the one at fault.

Running in my "Free Aafia Siddiqui" tee, I placed #3 in my division, which came as a shock since I was quite sleep-deprived, and lacked "home court advantage."

The next day, a friend and I headed to FMC Carswell to deliver a petition bearing around 750 signatures calling for Aafia's release on humanitarian grounds. We attempted, but were unable to deliver the petition, because administrative offices appeared closed. We left, resolving to return another day.
