Editorial by Dr. Kaukab Siddique

Islam in America, particularly marriage, for success, must be based on Authentic Islam, not National Traditions of Muslim Countries.

America bases male-female relations on freedom and choice. .

Immigrants often do not understand that purda-based [veiling] relations which are prevalent in Muslim majority countries can create situations in America which are opposed to the message and mission of Islam. My purpose here is not to discuss the situation in Muslim countries. I will say only that Muslim countries are following Islam only in part and often they consider their culture and customs to be part of Islam.

Here is my understanding of Islam and Islamic marriage:

  1. Faith in Allah and acceptance of the messages in the Qur'an and authentic hadith of the Prophet, pbuh, is essential. If the person you want to marry does not accept Islam as the ultimate truth, then marriage with such a person is forbidden.

  2. Some of our Arab Muslim brothers think that marriage of a Muslim male with a Christian or Jewish female is permitted. That is not true. The Qur'an strictly forbids such marriages. The Arab brothers have misunderstood a verse in Surah Maida to think that it is allowed. That Surah was revealed when Islam had become dominant and there was little chance of children from such a marriage following some religion other than Islam.

  3. Husband and wife are equals. Their relations have to be based on mutual consultation and consent. A chapter in the Qur'an titled Shoora [mutual consultation] makes such equality obligatory, Also sura hujurat makes it decisive that awareness of Allah and moral behavior [taqwa] is Islam, not gender superiority.

  4. Male and female are complementary to each other, not one dominant over the other. Surah al-Baqarah makes this clear by giving the metaphor of "garments" for EACH OTHER.

  5. Sura Ale Imran recognizes this equality not only in behavior but also in jihad against the enemies of Islam.

  6. The world we live in is corrupt and is organized by the forces of evil. Hence the points above one to five have to be a process and cannot suddenly happen.

  7. This is where the hadith of the Prophet, pbuh, specially his life in Makkah, becomes essential. We must focus on faith and prayer, not on dress and weaknesses which American culture has inculcated.

  8. We must be tolerant of non-Muslims but strict in our own behavior. There is no point in criticizing domestic violence among non-Muslims if we condone it in our own families.

  9. The husband must provide for the wife [4:34] till she can be economically viable like Khadija, r.a.

  10. Decency and modesty are important in Islam but the hijab as in Muslim majority countries was not taught in Qur'an and hadith till Madina was established.

  11. Hadith rules are essential in prayers five times a day. The prayer line is a line of battle. Men are in front because they are physically strong. Women are at the back, not because they are inferior but owing to Islam's effort to create a specific nurturing culture in which children are brought up with love. Ayesha, r.a., prayed behind the men but no man would dare to say that he is superior to Ayesha, r.a,

  12. Community is central to Islam; hence back biting, rumor mongering, slander and sectarianism are not allowed.

  13. Liquor, drugs, gambling, fornication/adultery, homosexuality are strictly forbidden. The punishment for rape is death. However such sharia laws can be expressed in non-Muslim societies but not applied.

JI report
IMF in Control. Kashmir Abandoned?
Secular Forces should be Checked.

by Qaiser Sharif

Peshawar: Jan29: Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Sirajul Haq has said the PTI government has given full control of economy to the IMF after surrendering Kashmir to India.

"Imran Khan government steps put at risk the country's sovereignty," he said while addressing a press conference in Peshawar on Saturday.

He said the governor of the state bank was now a higher authority than the parliament and the prime minister, holding the opposition equally responsible for the passage of the SBP amendment bill and supplementary finance bill from the Senate.

The JI chief said the government will not be able to borrow loans from the central bank now and the bank inaugurated by the founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam (RA) was now in control of the IMF.

Before launching the long marches, the opposition parties should explain to the public that how the government succeeded in the upper house despite their majority, he said.

Undoubtedly, he said, the main opposition parties and the government played on same pitch when it came to the matter of showing obedience to the USA and international lending agencies. The ruling elite, he said, sold the freedom of the nation to international powers.

It was not only the PTI government which was completely reliant on the international money lender for its policies, the former rulers also did the same steps, he said, adding the rulersdid politics only to increase their wealth and they had nothing to do with the country or the poor nation. Panama Leaks and Pandora Papers badly exposed the country's elite, he said.

Sirajul Haq said the JI will not sit silently on the injustices with the people of and hold sit-in across the country. He demanded the government take back the mini-budget, decrease 50 percent prices of the food items and remove the governor of the state bank or get ready to face the people's wrath. He said the government should go home if it could not provide relief to the poverty-stricken masses.

Deputy Chief of Jamaat-e-Islami, former Parliamentary Leader Liaqat Baloch while addressing Central Consultative Meeting, Teachers Training Workshop and Punjab North, South and Central Emirs, general secretaries and election officials said that the PTI, the Muslim League and the PPP have the same agenda on political, economic, internal and foreign affairs and in obeying the orders of the international financial institutions, the current government and the former ruling parties are united and equally responsible for the IMF's enslavement of the nation. Jamaat-e-Islami will awaken the whole nation through protests and sit-ins across the country and organize the people's power against national political criminals.

Liaqat Baloch told the teachers that by misinterpreting the September 11, 1947 speech of Quaid-e-Azam, the secular forces were casting doubt on the objectives of the establishment of Pakistan, the Two-Nation Theory and the struggle of Quaid-e-Azam, Allama Iqbal. The Objectives Resolution, the 22 points of the prominent ulema and the constitution of Pakistan are the unanimous document of the whole nation and the spokesman and protector of the objectives of Pakistan Movement. By deviating from Islam and self-reliance, the country has promoted the supremacy of selflessness and prejudice, hatred, extremism, intolerance and injustice in the society. Islam is the religion of nature, the complete code of life; Only with the supremacy of Islam, Pakistan will become an Islamic, prosperous and stable country.

Liaqat Baloch condemned terrorism in Ketch (Balochistan) and said that the rulers and terrorists are on the same page against CPEC. He expressed heartfelt condolences and solidarity with the families of the martyrs and advised that governments and state agencies must address weaknesses in national security and the relevant policies. US-India-Israel nexus is a threat to Pakistan. On the internal front, national unity is a great weapon.

Liaqat Baloch said that the federal and provincial governments have made a mockery of local bodies institutions and and elections. The courts are being deceived by blatant violations of the constitution and legal considerations.

In Karachi, Jamaat-e-Islami has stopped government's dacoity on the people of Karachi. In Punjab too, protests and sit-ins in every district will force the government to empower local bodies

This is the way to Protest Against Israel

On January 24 the city Council of Ann Arbor, Michigan, ;passed a resolution condemning the weekly protests held against Israel near the local Synagogue. However the resolution did not work. The protestors have said that they will continue to protest every Saturday, peacefiully but loudly.

Even during the City Council meeting while speakers condemned the protestors, protestors chanted: Stop shooting Palestinians after every speech.

First amendment rights support protests which are peaceful and non-violent.

The Omicron Variant
Why the higher death toll?

Dr Abraar Karan, an infectious disease doctor at Stanford University, told the BBC that the high death toll is largely a factor of the high hospitalisation rate, even if the symptoms of the Omicron variant are generally less severe than those of Delta.

"When you have a more transmissible virus, it would exponentialise the number of severe cases and deaths. Even if you have a low percentage of severe cases, the absolute number can still be quite high. A small percentage of a very large number is still a large number."

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that a vast majority - as much as 75% - of those dying are older than 65.

How many are unvaccinated?

Additionally, statistics suggest that the unvaccinated are approximately 100 times more likely to die from Covid-19 than those who have been vaccinated and boosted.

"The common thread throughout the Omicron wave is that it is largely impacting the unvaccinated, in terms of severity of illness, hospitalisation rates and indeed, risk of dying from the infection," said Dr Mark Cameron, an associate professor in the department of population and quantitative health sciences at Case Western University in Ohio. "It's crystal clear".

In the US, approximately 63% of residents are fully vaccinated, and 12% of people are partially vaccinated.

Professor David Larsen, an epidemiologist and global health expert at Syracuse University in New York, said that the rising number of vaccinated individuals - who in many cases will change their behaviours and intermingle with their peers more - may also be contributing to rising hospitalisations and deaths among the remaining unvaccinated.

"It's people in places with high vaccination rates, cities like Boston and New York City, that are most likely to change their behaviour and encounter the virus, but have less severe outcomes," he said.

"As the surge continues, it would be normal to expect higher mortality rates as the virus reaches into more vulnerable parts of the population," Dr Larsen added.

Dr Cameron added that in many cases, the dangers of Americans being unvaccinated is compounded by other factors, including age and comorbidities such as obesity or hypertension.

"The risks mount for people with multiple of those factors," he said.

What will happen now?

In the short term, experts believe that the daily death toll is likely to continue to rise. Dr Cameron warned that a peak in mortality lags behind peaks in cases by up to a month, suggesting that deaths may continue to rise for at least the next several weeks.

"We're not there in the US yet," he said. "Omicron has strength in numbers working against us in terms of reducing our overall per capita death rate."

Since the pandemic began in early March 2020, more than 866,000 Americans and US residents have died from Covid-19.

Lesson from Hadith by Sis. Yasmin

Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam
'Ala Rasulillah.
As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu.

Abû Bakr Al-Siddîq (Radiallahu 'Anhu) on his Deathbed
to 'Umar (Radiallahu 'Anhu) .

When Abû Bakr Al-Siddîq (Radiallahu'Anhu) was on his deathbed he called 'Umar (Radiallahu 'Anhu) [Allah be pleased with them both] and said...

'Fear Allah O 'Umar, and know that Allah has deeds to be done for Him in the day which He will not accept if done at night ! and He has deeds to be done for Him at night which He will not accept if done during the day !

He will not accept extra (Nâfilah) deeds unless you fulfill the obligatory deeds.
The scales of those whose scales will be weighty on the Day of Resurrection will only be weighty because they followed the truth in this life and it was weighty to them.
And scales in which the truth will be placed tomorrow truly deserve to be heavy.
And the scales of those whose scales will be light on the Day of Resurrection will only be light because they followed falsehood in this life and it was a light matter to them !

And scales in which falsehood will be placed tomorrow truly deserve to be light !

Allah the Exalted has mentioned the people of Paradise and mentioned them in the context of their Best Deeds ! and overlooked their evil deeds ! so when I remember them I say to myself...
I fear that I will not be included with them !

And Allah the Exalted has mentioned the people of Hell and mentioned them in the context of their worst deeds and rejected their best deeds, so when I remember them I say...
I hope I won't be amongst them !

Allah's worshipers should always be in a state of hope and fear. they shouldn't wish flimsy wishes about Allah and neither should they despair of Allah's Mercy.
If you keep to this advice of mine, no one who is not with you now should be more beloved to you than DEATH !

and, it is sure to come to you !
But...if you disregard this advice, no one who is not with you now should be more hated to you than DEATH !
and you cannot escape it'.

{Subhan Allah}
~Y a s m i n. ~
"Never Despair Of The Mercy Of Allah"
' Son of Adam! you are nothing but a number of days,
whenever each day passes then part of you has Gone.

Major Cause of Pollution. Thousands of pigs drowned

Thousands of pigs that drowned on a Fraser Valley farm during last year's flood are now being turned into compost at a facility near Princeton, the owner of which firmly denies allegations the carcasses pose a threat to the environment.

The pigs, which were among approximately 600,000 animals that died on Sumas Prairie in late November, were trucked to the Net Zero Waste Eastgate facility about 50 kilometres west of Princeton in early December.

That drew the attention of the Upper Similkameen Indian Band, which dispatched staff to investigate.

"On Dec. 10, a team of USIB natural resource staff visited the site and were alarmed to find what is estimated to be many thousands of deceased and decomposing pig carcasses," Chief Bonnie Jacobsen wrote in a letter to the Town of Princeton that was attached to the agenda package for Monday's council meeting.

"In addition to the massive number of dead animals, we also found that leachate and contaminated water was flowing directly from the facility into the receiving environment near the Similkameen River."Canada

Was the Second World War only about extermination of one race ?
By Dr. Kaukab Siddique

Scholars often miss the extermination of the entire officers Corp of Poland by the Russians. The Soviets had planned to usurp all of Poland. They won the confidence of Police officers and gathered them and massacred them in the Katyn forest.

When the German armies advanced into Poland and then i9nto Ukraine and Russia, they found the bodies of the Polish officers. The western allies and Russia blamed Germany but the top German propaganda leader Goebbels called in the International Red Cross who ascertained that the massacre . at close range, was done by the Russians, execution style and not during any fighting.

After the war the German claims about Katyn turned out to be correct.

Germany had set up a concentration camp for war production at the town of Auschwitz in Poland. When the tide of the war turned and massive Russian armies advanced through Poland, Auschwitz was one of the little towns they captured. They made no propaganda about it. It was captured in mJanuary 1945. The war ended in May 1945 with the defeat of Germany. During these four months no devastating propaganda was made against Germany.

With the death of Hitler and Goebbels, Germany could no longer counter Russian propaganda. The Russians then claimed that Auschwitz was a death camp and six million people, mostly of one race, had died there, many of them in mass killings in horrific ways in gas ovens. Even the Russians realized that six million were a bit too many and they reduced the numbers to one and a half million and then to one million.

A number of scholars of the highest repute have challenged the Auschwitz story and have systematically challenged these numbers and the claims of extermination. Israel, which has occupied Palestine by force of brutal power has benefitted most from the Russian claims. The Auschwitz related claims were used at Nuremburg in show trials which led to the execution of some German leaders and long prison terms for others.

Pro-Israeli groups have made it impossible for these claims to be contested through global control of mainstream media. In a number of countries, including defeated Germany, the slightest criticism of the Nuremburg trials and the claims of the victors can lead to imprisonment and financial penalties.

One result of the one sided claims against Germany is that atrocities by Israel against Palestinians are ignored by mainstream media despite almost daily reporting on social media. Three military assaults by Israel against Gaza in which several thousand civilians including hundreds of Palestinian children were killed led to ZERO protests against Israel by the western powers.


Fatwa #4.
Is there any truth in the Story of Ghadeer Khum? Did the Prophet, pbuh, utter the words"Maula Ali?"

Ghadeer Khum: The Biggest Scam in Muslim History is the Basis of sectarian beliefs.
Did Ali, r.a, naoozubillah, have sex with a captive slave woman?
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

Thanks to Dr.T I have received a video by Dr. Hafiz Muhammad Zubair in which he tries to explain the story of a large gathering at Ghadir Khum.

The claim that the Prophet, pbuh, proclaimed Ali, r.a., to be his "Mawla" at a watering hole known as Ghadeer is a FABRICATION. It does not appear in any of the early narrations of hadith including the earliest biography of the Prophet, pbuh, by Ibn Ishaq.

As I continued my research, it became clear that the "Mawla Ali" fabricated "hadith" is part of a bigger scam.
The claim is that the Prophet, pbuh, gathered all the Muslims at Ghadeer Khum and told them that Ali, r.a., is as much their "mawla" as of the Prophet, pbuh, himself.

Most Muslims do not know that Ghadeer Khum is 230 km from Makka.
Makka had drawn the entire Muslim community because Hajj is a religious obligation and it was the Prophet's , pbuh, farewell Hajj. At this gathering the Prophet, pbuh, gave his famous sermon in which he taught Muslims how to be Muslims and to treat women best almost like the kaaba.

He did not say a word about Ali, nor did he call them to gather again at Ghadeer Khum.

After the pilgrimage, the Muslims left for their homes.
There is NO HADITH which says that the Prophet, pbuh, called the 100,000 or so to gather again at Ghadeer Khum.

There was no way to call them. There were no telephones or emails. Gathering at Ghadeer Khum was not a religious obligation. So on what basis would they gather out in the desert?
Did he send horsemen proclaiming to people to gather at Ghadeer Khum and not to go home? There is not even a weak hadith or narrative of any kind showing that people were obliged to gather at Ghadeer khum.
The Muslims of Makka would not come out 230 km into the desert to Ghadeer Khum for no religious reason.
The Muslims of Yemen and Taif would go south.
Only the Muslims of Madina would go north with the Prophet, pbuh. Even to gather them would be difficult because there was no religious obligation.

Again NOT ONE SAHABI is reported to have narrated that horsemen were sent out to command Muslims to gather at Ghadeer Khum.

Thus the only story of Ghadeer Khum is about this small force which had returned from Yaman and was angry with the commands of Ali, r.a. As we notice in the narrative from Ibn Ishaq, the words "Ali Mawla" do not occur in the Prophet's, pbuh, efforts to reduce the anger of the troops against Ali, r.a.

Two hundred years later Shias fabricated the story about "Mawla Ali" and used gossip and hearsay to insert it in the Musnad of Ahmad and a few others.

Bukhari, who is the strictest collector of hadith, gives the ghadeer khum story without the fabrication of "Mawla Ali."
Here it is:

Narrated Buraida, r.a:
The Prophet sent Ali to Khalid to bring the Khumus (of the spoils of war) and I hated Ali, and Ali had taken a bath (after a sexual act with a captive-girl from the Khumus). I said to Khalid, "Don't you see this (i.e. Ali)?" When we reached the Prophet, I mentioned that to him. He (the Prophet) said, "O Buraida! Do you hate Ali?" I said, "Yes." He said, "Do you hate him, for he deserves more than that from the Khumus." [Sahih Bukhari (volume 5, Book 59 Number 637]

Here there is no mention of "Mawla Ali." Instead there is a much more serious issue. The Prophet, pbuh, had shown through his own example that Muslims should marry women captured in war. Was Ali, r.a., violating that Sunnah or did he marry that woman?

This becomes even more serious when we remember that Ali, r.a., was married to the Prophet's, pbuh, own daughter.

This story of Ali having sex with a helpless captive girl while he was married to the Prophet's, pbuh, daughter, r.a., is most probably a gross fabrication meant to defame Ali,r.a., who was a pious man who was not interested in worldly pleasures.

Let me mention the most serious objection to the alleged "hadith" about Ghadeer khum.
The "hadith" about Ghadir Khum is NOT narrated by any of the great sahaba who would have accompanied the Prophet, pbuh, on his farewell sermon: Abu Bakr, Umar, Usman and Ali, r.a.
Even Ali himself, who is central to this narrative, did not narrate about Ghadir Khum.

Ayesha, r.a. the greatest scholar of Islam was not even asked about this.

The alleged narrative by Buraida, r.a., in Bukhari claims that Ali, r.a., not only had sex with a captive girl but that the Prophet, pbuh, supported Ali and told the angry sahaba not to be angry because Ali has more of a right than what he had already taken.

It contradicts the Prophet's, pbuh, most famous action which stopped the usual war time mistreatment of captive women.
