 Dr Kaukab Siddique

My visit to Iraq with Imam Badi Ali.
Madeleine Albright, 500,000 dead Iraqi children and Praise from NPR & CNN

by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

America was getting ready to bomb Iraq, Saddam had changed and embraced Islam. He wanted Iraqis to resist.

The embargo was killing children on a huge scale. The Muslim umma had been brainwashed by the major media. Hatred fanned by the Shia sect silenced many Muslims.

When America attacked no one came to help Saddam. He was the only Arab leader who continued to fight till he was captured and put on trial by the puppets.

When he was hanged, he was reciting the kalima and holding on to the Qur'an.

Some Muslims did turn up in Baghdad when I was there from 50 countries but only two of us from USA.

It's a long journey by road from Amman to Baghdad in the cold desert of February, America had blocked all flights. Even Saddam's intelligence agents who shadowed us wanted only one thing from us: Vitamin C. Iraqis had been drained of their energy and vitality by the embargo. Children were dying for lack of medicines. The adults were getting siick.

The car had no heating in it. I had on a thick sweater but Br. Badi in his shirt was shivering. I offered him my sweater. I can't forget his answer:
"The people are cold. How can I be comfortable."

When we returned to Amman, it was a different world. The Jordanians were partying as if nearby Iraq did not exist.

Remember that Saddam was the only Arab ruler whose long range missiles actually hit Israel.

Now years later NPR, CNN , New York Times are outdoing each other in extolling Madeleine Albright. When she was asked about the slow death of half a million Iraqi children, she reportedly said: It was worth it.



Jamaate Islami held massive rallies in Upper Dir and Lower Dir [frontier provincde]

which were addressed by ameer Sirajul Haq and various other speakers.

Our observers say that the Prime minister's rally was a government function in which people were brought by the train loads all the way from Karachi.

 War News


After heavy fighting around Kiev, Russia has announced change of goals and objectives. Russia evidently sustained heavy losses and destruction of many tanks owing to determined resistance by Ukraine with the help of hand-held missiles provided by Germany and America.

However Russia is using long range artillery and missiles to create panic and fear among Ukrainian populations. Missile attacks near the border with Poland have created fear in the west that Russia might be looking at a larger extension of the war.

A report indicates that Chechen Muslim fighters are fighting for Russia [in the south] as well as for Ukraine in the areas around Kiev. [sort of like Afghans on both sides]
Russia has destroyed most of Mariupol but fighting continues in some sectors of the city,

Russia has not been able to stop steady supply of weapons from the west to Kiev. Also civilian movements out of Ukraine are continuing.

"Saudi Arabia"

A Houthi high flying object hit a fuel tank near Jeddah causing a big fifre which was visible from 7 miles away.

Saudii counter attacks hit three targets in Yemen killing 8 people.

A researcher for the Monitor indicates that stoppage of Russian air strikes has helped ISIS to increase its attacks on Assad regime and Iranian forces in the eastern countryside of Raqqa, Homs and Deir ez Zor provinces.
Artillery and machine gun fire exchanges between Syrians supporting Turkey and the Assad regime are ongoing every day. No details about losses.

Two Pakistani troops were killed in clashes in north Waziristan.

In Sibi Baluchistan area, Pakistani troops killed 6 Baluch militants who had attacked the popular Anarkali market in Lahore and were traced to their hideouts

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — President Joe Biden on Saturday dramatically escalated his rhetoric against Vladimir Putin, calling for the Russian leader to be removed because of his brutal invasion of Ukraine.

"For God's sake, this man cannot remain in power.," Biden's said at the very end of a speech in Poland's capital that served as the capstone on a four-day trip to Europe.

  1. Going after Clarence Thomas wife. Black man at the highest level being attacked via his wife.

  2. Do people really believe CNN? On the one hand that Russia has been defeated and its top generals have disappeared, on the other that conditions are terrible and people are desperate and trying to flee.

    The zionists who control US media seem to think Americans are chumps unable to see the contradictions.

  3. Twitter is controlled by Agarwal, obviously a Hindu. Today he censored Tucker Carlson. Tucker also noted that Jackson going for Supreme Court could not define a woman. Transvestite influence? Muslims beware. Do Muslims understand what is going on?

  4. Incredible claims by CNN. Two days back 10,000 Russians killed. Today 40, 000!
    Source: Nato!

    But Nato is not in Ukraine. So the source has to be Ukraine.
    Sheer propaganda.
    How can you know Russian losses?

    CNN probably thinks Americans will swallow anything. It is totally controlled media probably by Zionists.

  5. NPR is pressuring Disney to support lgbtq homos teaching 5 year olds. Power is going to their heads. Florida is still Christian and is passing a Don't say Gay bill.

  6. What is the problem with Yasir Qadhi? We can all differ with mujahideen groups overseas instead of discussing them in an analytical way which would lead to understanding. [It is also the safe thing to do, lol!.]

But to go to the KUFFAR media, the worst of them being FOX, and to condemn mujahideen groups is a form of kufr. ALL Islamic scholars for 1400 years have agreed that whatever our differences, if we go to the kuffar and support them against Islamic fighters, that is HARAM activity.

Yasir Qadhi has shown us on which side his bread is buttered by coming on FoX to show that he is a munafiq.

Secularism and the crime of secularists
Dr. Firoz Mahboob Kamal

The gravest crime.
The most catastrophic defeat of Muslims did not take place on any battlefield. They lost the war on the conceptual premise. The defeat on the geopolitical frontiers came much later. Muslims lost the war of ideas only because of secularisation of their thought. The early Muslims used the Holy Qur'an as the most powerful ideological weapon against the enemies. Because of secularisation of thought, they ignored its importance. Hence they forsake the most powerful Qur'anic weapon. In fact, they became radical seculatist in practice and Muslim only by name. So, the secularist Muslims lost the war ideologically before it was started. They indeed became the part of the enemies before the enemies won the war.

Secularism is defined as a "system of social organization and education where a religion is not allowed to play a part in civil affairs."-(Collins COBUILD Advanced Learner's Dictionary). Therefore, the prime political objective of secularists is to restrict religions playing any role in the system of social organizations, politics, education, and warfare. The conflict between the secularists and the believers indeed starts on this seminal point. Islam is known for its all-inclusive global vision, mission and objective. Islam aims at resconstruction and purification not only of indivuals but also of families, societies, organisations and states. In such a process of purification cum reconstruction, the Holy Qur'an works as a Divine instrument of change. Hence, without the Holy Qur'an, Islam can't operate in families, societies, organisations and states. Therefore, secularists commit a grave crime and declare a war against Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'ala by banning access of Qur'anic knowledge in education, organisations, societies and states. Hence, their every act of politics is a grave war crime.

The best ibadah and the worst crime.
The Holy Qur'an is the greatest blessing of Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'ala for all humans. Establishing peace on the earth and entry into paradise are only possible by following the path shown in the Holy Qur'an -called siratul mustaqeem. Therefore, standing against the Holy Qur'an and putting any prohibition on knowing the Qur'anic path is a great crime. It equals obstructing the way of paradise and taking people to hellfire. Killing millions of people is a huge crime. But putting billions of people in a flame of hellfire for a period of infinity is a million times more horrendous crime. No crime on the earth can match its severity. Such a crime is being committed by the secularists by obstructing teaching of the Holy Qur'an even in Muslim counries. It is indeed a crime against the whole of mankind. But awfully such criminals go unpunished even in Muslim countries!

The Qur'anic path to paradise -siratul mustaqeem runs not only through five-time prayers, month-long fasting in Ramadan, haj, and charity, but also through Islamic education, politics, judiciary, media, administration, and jihad in the way of Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'ala. If any of these parts remains uncovered, it puts an end to the whole journey. Then, he or she can't reach the desired destination in paradise. Therefore, to access paradise, covering all segments of siratul mustaqeem is crucial. Jihad is the most difficult part; more than 60 percent of the companions lost their lives to cover this bloody segment. Jihad is the ultimate testing ground of iman. But today, most Muslims carefully avoid this difficult part; therefore fail to complete the journey. They do wars for racial, tribal, national and party-related causes; but not for bringing victory to Islam.

The early Muslim rightly realised the worth of this greatest task; hence more more than 60 percent of the companions of the Prophet (peace be upon him) became shaheed. As a result of their sacrifices, Muslims could emerge as the most powerful civilizational force on the earth and could raise the finest civilisation in history. In those golden days, they did not need to build monumental mosques. But today, this greatest ibadah gets neglected. It is even blamed as terrorism. Because of the betrayal, although Muslims could build millions of mosques and madrasas -many of them are monumental but couldn't build a single Islamic state. As a result, Muslims stand powerless, defeated and disgraced all over the world.

Crimes of the secularists
Nuclear bombs or chemical bombs instantly burn people to death. But these bombs do not take people to hellfire to be burnt there for the infinity. But the crimes of the secularists are worse. They take people to hellfire by putting an obstruction on the heaven-bound Divine roadmap. Moreover, they use the secular educational and cultural systems to immunize students' minds against any Islamic influence. Thus they raise barriers against the Islamisation of individuals, families, states, and societies. In the geopolitical arena, it raises divisive walls in the name of languages, ethnicity, geography, and culture. Thus, the secularist forces could easily dismantle the unity of the Muslim ummah and could restrict the spread of Islamic influence from one country to another.

Secularists keep the Qur'anic lessons out of the classrooms, reject sharia in the judiciary, and restrict the practice of Islam only within the mosques and private life. Because of such inimical approach against the mission, vision, and objective of Islam, they easily qualify to be the trustworthy friend of the known enemies of Islam all over the world. Hence, these secularists are taken as partners to occupy Muslim lands. So the Americans, the British, the Russians, and the Indians were never alone in their occupational wars in the Muslim lands like Afghanistan, Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, Kashmir and many other places.

Rememberance & Seeking Forgiveness.

'Assalaamualaykum Wa Rahmatuallahi Wa Barakatahu'
'There is a Polish for everything that takes away Rust ...{!}
and the Polish for the Heart is? The Remembrance of Allah.'
[Source: S.Bukhari]

Al-Bayhaqee relates from Ibn 'Umar [Radiallaahu 'Anhu] ....
PROPHET ﷺ ~ said... " For everything there is a Polish, and the Polish for the Hearts is the 'DHIKR'[Remembrance] of Allah...!
There is nothing more potent in saving a person from the punishment of Allah than the 'Dhikr' of Allah."
It was said... 'Not even 'Jihad' in the path of Allah'?
Prophet [Sallallahu 'Alayhi wa Salaam] replied...
" Not even if you were to continue striking with your sword until it breaks."
[Source: Saheeh: Related by Ahmad (4/352), from Mu'aadh ibn Jabal [Radiallaahu 'anhu].

A Little Note...
The polish for a rusty heart is the 'Dhikr' of ALLAH !
This is because 'Dhikr' is like a polish (which polishes the heart) like a shiny mirror !
When 'Dhikr' is left, the rust returns!
But when 'Dhikr' resumes then the Heart is again Polished!

~Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya (Rahimahullah) said...
" Doubtless, a heart grows tarnished like brass or silver, and its polish is by remembrance, which may make it shine like a crystal mirror! So when one neglects the remembrance it Tarnishes and when he returns it shines!
Since the heart is Tarnished by two things... Heedlessness and Sin, it is polished by two things: Remembrance and asking for Forgiveness."

Hadith of the Week

Narrated by An-Nu'man bin Bashir,ra:
The Prophet said,
"The example of the person abiding by Allah's order and restrictions in comparison to those who violate them is like the example of those persons who drew lots for their seats in a boat. Some of them got seats in the upper part, and the others in the lower.

When the latter needed water, they had to go up to bring water (and that troubled the others), so they said, 'Let us make a hole in our share of the ship to get water saving those who are above us from troubling them'.

So, if the people in the upper part left the others (in the lower part) to do what they had suggested, all the people of the ship would be destroyed, but if they prevented them, both parties would be safe.":

Amnesty: "Israel is committing apartheid, says UN Special Rapporteur"
MAR 24, 2022

Amnesty International: The Special Rapporteur on human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT), Michael Lynk, has submitted a report to the Human Rights Council, concluding that the situation in the OPT amounts to apartheid.

Saleh Higazi, Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International, said: "The Special Rapporteur's findings are an important and timely addition to the growing international consensus that Israeli authorities are committing apartheid against the Palestinian people. The report details how Israel has established a system of racially motivated oppression against Palestinians, explicitly designed to maintain Jewish Israeli domination, and maintained through the commission of grave human rights violations.

Palestinian human rights organizations have been calling the situation apartheid for years, and this report is a landmark moment of recognition of the lived reality of millions of Palestinians

Saleh Higazi, Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International

"Palestinian human rights organizations have been calling the situation apartheid for years, and this report is a landmark moment of recognition of the lived reality of millions of Palestinians. Like Amnesty International and many other human rights groups, the Special Rapporteur examined Israel's treatment of Palestinians through the lens of international law and reached the unmistakable conclusion that this is apartheid.

"In recent months Israel has intensified its efforts to censor and discredit anyone who uses the word apartheid. Instead of engaging with serious allegations made by human rights organizations and now the UN, Israeli authorities continue to limit their response to attacking the messenger with groundless accusations of bias. This failing strategy cannot hide the growing consensus among experts that the harsh reality of the grinding oppression to which Israel subjects Palestinians on a daily basis is a textbook example of apartheid.

"The report emphasizes the need for the international community to accept the findings of human rights organizations, including Amnesty, and start calling Israel's apartheid what it is. The international community, in particular countries allied to Israel, must stop making excuses for this cruel system of racial domination and oppression and take immediate action to help end apartheid and protect Palestinian rights. "

Amnesty International's February 2022 report sets out how Israel is enforcing a system of apartheid against Palestinians wherever it has control of their rights, including within Israel. Amnesty is calling on the International Criminal Court (ICC) to consider the crime of apartheid in its current investigation in the OPT, and for all states to exercise universal jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute persons suspected of the crime against humanity of apartheid.

"In recent months Israel has intensified its efforts to censor and discredit anyone who uses the word apartheid. This strategy is failing in the face of the growing consensus among experts that Israel is committing apartheid

Saleh Higazi
The report of the Special Rapporteur examines the current human rights situation in the OPT, with particular focus on the question of apartheid. It finds that Israeli Jews and Palestinians in Occupied Palestinian Territories live "under a single regime which differentiates its distribution of rights and benefits on the basis of national and ethnic identity, and which ensures the supremacy of one group over, and to the detriment of, the other." It sets out how this system "endows one racial-national-ethnic group with substantial rights, benefits and privileges while intentionally subjecting another group to live behind walls, checkpoints and under a permanent military rule", and concludes that this "satisfies the prevailing evidentiary standard for the existence of apartheid".

In January, a leaked cable from the Israeli Foreign Ministry described a planned campaign to discredit the Special Rapporteur's work, and Israeli authorities have prevented UN human rights staff and investigators from entering Israel and/or the OPT. This is part of a wide-ranging attack on human rights which has also seen Palestinian organizations outlawed, harassed and silenced.

India: Muslim Woman activist recounts two 'painful' years in jail

Ishrat Jahan was arrested during the 2020 Delhi riots following protests against a controversial citizenship law passed by Modi's government.

By Zafar Aafaq
Published On 22 Mar 2022

New Delhi, India - When Ishrat Jahan walked out of a prison in the Indian capital last week, she was hugged by her sister and they burst into tears as relatives gathered around to welcome her back home after more than two years of imprisonment.

"I missed my family a lot. This separation was very difficult for me," she told Al Jazeera a week after her release from Jahan, a 31-year-old activist, was arrested along with dozens of other Muslims in February 2020 during mass protests against a controversial citizenship law passed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist government in December 2019.

The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) allowed non-Muslim migrants and refugees from India's neighbouring countries to secure Indian citizenship if they arrived in India before December 2014. Read together with a proposed National Register of Citizens (NRC), many feared the CAA-NRC plans were aimed at disenfranchising the Muslim minority.
