By Nadrat Siddique

The former dictator of my country, Pervez Musharraf is dead. Among his other ignominies .

- Musharraf turned a Muslim woman scientist, Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, over to the CIA, to be raped, tortured, and brutalized, her children forcibly removed from her and separately imprisoned. She was ultimately sentenced to 86 years in prison for a crime she could not have committed;

- Musharraf turned over the Islamabad-based Taliban ambassador, Mullah Abdus Salaam Zaeef, never mind his diplomatic status, to the U.S. The soft spoken, scholarly ambassador was then sent to the U.S. torture center at Guantanamo Bay and held for 4½ years before being released. He was never charged nor tried.

- During the early years of the WOT ("War on Terror"), Musharraf allowed the U.S. to put out a dragnet to seize all manner of innocents from Pakistani soil. These men and boys, including some as young as 14, were sent to secret prisons, where they endured horrific torture. Many of these were sent on to the U.S. torture center at Guantanamo Bay, where they were held for indefinite periods, without charge or trial, deprived of counsel.

- Post 9-11, Musharraf subverted Pakistan's economy to serve the U.S. WOT.

- Musharraf ordered the military assault and siege of Lal Masjid, a major mosque in Islamabad, which he perceived to be too hard line. He ordered the murder of its imam. The imam's mother and numerous other members of the mosque were also killed in the assault.

- In conjunction with the Lal Masjid assault, Musharraf ordered the Pakistan Army to attack Jamia Hafsa, an Islamic seminary for young Muslim women. Jamia Hafsa was contiguous to, and associated with Lal Masjid. Large numbers of Jamia Hafsa students were detained. Many of these "disappeared" indefinitely.

- Musharraf authorized the Pakistan Military to conduct the aerial bombardment of hundreds of mosques in the Northwestern frontier of Pakistan, setting off what became known as the Waziristan War.

- Musharraf authorized unfettered use of Pakistani air space by the U.S., allowing the latter to conduct thousands of drone strikes across the Pakistani frontier, as well as in Afghanistan. These resulted in the deaths of thousands of Pakistani and Afghan civilian deaths.

I, for one, will not be mourning Pervez Musharraf. He can most charitably be characterized as an imperialist sycophant and king of munafiqs. The pain of his medical treatment for amyloidosis will pale in comparison to what Allah (AWJ) has in store for this war criminal. Inshallah.

 War News

War News [We report the war news without taking sides.]


Very little fighting is going on. In areas not hit by the quake, people are collecting relief funds, such as in Hasakeh and al-Raqqa.


In the latest fighting in Waziristan, 3 security men were killed and 22 injured.

The massacre of 100 policemen earlier week by a human Islamic bomber is still a mystery.

How did the bomber penetrate two high security lines, waited till the police lined up for prayers and then blews up the whole building. [Next to Peshawar.]

TTP and ISIS are suspected but still no clarification.

Everyone Praises LeBron but Enes Kanter is Better.
Opposes China

Sis. 'Aisha
Jamaat al-Muslimeen New York City

On February 7, 2023, LeBron James had broken the scoring record of NBA legend Kareem Abdul Jabbar. The countdown to this event began two years ago!

This record had been held for over thirty years by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. At the time of Abdul-Jabbar's retirement, he scored 38,387 points, which left the late Wilt Chamberlain's 31,419 points a distant second on the list. On February 7th, LeBron scored 38,390 points.

While everyone was effusively praising LeBron James, who calls himself King James or The Chosen One, there was one particular player who refused to join in...

Enes Kanter Freedom, a National Basketball Association (NBA) free agent, has been a longtime adversary and critic of LeBron James. Enes added Freedom to his surname when he became an American citizen in November 2021. He is a Gulen Movement supporter and has been very critical of Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

He has accused the Turkish government of harassing him and his family. His Turkish passport and citizenship were rescinded in 2017. Allegedly, as of January 10, 2023, he is on Turkey's "Most Wanted" terrorist list with a $500,000 bounty put on him.

Until 2022, Enes Freedom was an active NBA player and extremely vocal in his efforts to draw attention to the plight of the Uighur Muslims in China, among other things. He has been critical of the NBA's business dealings with China, as well as NBA players, such as LeBron, who are sponsored by companies that have benefited from these Muslim slave camps, such as Nike.

When "King James" became the new scoring points leader Enes Freedom's Twitter response was the following:

It's no wonder why a player as talented as Enes Freedom, with decent scoring ability, can no longer find a team that will take him!

Interesting how the NBA supported Enes Freedom's First Amendment rights when he was critical of Turkey but, seemed to have turned against him once he became critical of the league's relationship with China, in spite of concrete evidence of its concentration camp.

Various sports media outlets remarked that Enes Freedom's time in the NBA might be coming to an end because of his strong stance against the oppressive Chinese government. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver denies Enes Freedom is being spurned by the league.

Guidance from Sis. Yasmin

'Assalamu `Alaykum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuhu'.

~How to attain 'Al-Khushoo' in Our Prayers ~
[ *In Shaa Allah* ]
How is it possible for us to gain 'Al-Khushoo' (Humility )
in and outside of the prayer and during recitation of the 'Qur`an' ?

Allah {Azza Wa Jal}~says...

Inline image
'The Believers will prosper.
Those who have 'Khushoo' within their prayers'.

[Source~ 'Qur`an'~ Surat Al Mu'minoon 23: A # 1-2]

'Al-Khushoo' is the
essence and core of the prayer... !
and it means the presence and attendance of the Heart !

And that the heart of the person who is praying does not wander left and right.

However ...
if the person senses something that will divert him away from (this) 'Al-Khushoo' ...

then he must seek refuge with Allah from the outcast 'shaitan' just as the Prophet [Sallallahu `Alayhi Wasallam ] instructed us to do !
And there is no doubt that the 'shaitan' is extremely assiduous upon spoiling all acts of worship especially the 'Salah' which is the most superior act of worship after the two Testimonies.

Thus, the 'shaitan' comes to the 'Musalli'
(praying individual) and says, or whispers

'Remember this and that'... {!}

and he causes him to indulge in thoughts and ideas that are of no benefit and which leave his head as soon as he concludes from the prayer...{!}

Therefore, it is upon a person that he strives with the

utmost ambition to devote himself towards Allah the Mighty and Majestic {!}

and if he feels anything from these misgivings and devilish insinuations to seek refuge with Allah from the outcast 'shaitan'

whether he is Raki' (bowing), in the 'Tashahhud', sitting, or standing or in any position from his prayer...!

Lastly from the greatest means that will aid one in attaining Al-Khushoo' in the prayer

is that he Visualizes himself standing in front of Allah and that he is confiding in his Lord ALLAH {Subhanahu wa Ta` ala.}

{'In Shaa Allah'}

...My 'Salaams' to all...
~Y a s m i n ~

"All that is on earth will Perish. But will abide {Forever} the Face of thy Lord, full of Majesty, Bounty and Honour"

I Want to Die With my Forehead on the Ground!
The Sunnah in my Heart, Allah on my Mind,
Qur'an on my Tongue, and Tears in my Eyes!

Terrible Earthquakes & Muslim Response.

Tyree Nichols embraced Islam.

On February 10, Br. Kaukab Siddique gave the Juma Khutba at Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in Baltimore.

After prayers, the masjid Imam announced that Tyre Nichols had embraced Islam before he was murdered in Memphis. The community then held salatul janaza ghaibana for him.

The main points of br. Kaukab's khutba were as follows follows:

  1. The earthquake has brought terrible suffering to the people of Turkey and northern Syria.

  2. However the western media are not showing the strong faith of the people of the two countries. Each time a survivor is brought out from under the rubble, the people chant Allahu Akbar.

  3. Muslims have overcome even worse suffering than this in Iraq and parts of Syria owing to attacks by NATO and Iran.

  4. Qur'an warns us that one day this whole world will collapse like this, so we should not get too attached to our worldly possessions.

  5. Part 2.

  6. Our masjid is doing very well but we should also look at our weaknesses.

  7. We should be outgoing and focus on da'wah

  8. America is holding more than two million people in its prisons and 5 million of their relatives are affected by this situation and many more indirectly.

  9. This is a form of slavery and we should support the prisoners' needs as much as we can.

  10. The blatant murder of Tyre Nichols in Memphis is very revealing. The media seldom go into the details of police brutality but this time they are going into it full blast because these victimizing police are Black.

  11. They do'nt tell the public that the defense minister who is launching
    attacks on Muslims in Afica is also Black.

  12. We must learn that we are against all oppressors, not against any race.


without our sisters we cannot be an Islamic movement. AYESHA, may Allah be pleased with her, freed numerous captives. She even went on the battlefield.

Here in America we had a great Christian woman, Harriet Tubman, who freed many slaves.

Women are essential to any genuine movement.

May Allah forgive our sins and shortcomings.

Two links for the khutba
They are like self-crticism. One shows few people. The second shows late comers.
At one point the microphone stopped working.

The Council on Foundations has also compiled a list of recommended organisations, including several local groups, that have launched emergency funds to respond to the situation in Turkey and Syria.

Among the groups are GlobalGiving, Give2Asia, Turkish Red Crescent, Turkey Mozaik Foundation and Turkish Philanthropy Funds.

Meanwhile, United Nations agencies, including its children's fund, UNICEF, directly accept donations.

With the disasters disproportionately affecting millions of Syrians displaced by 12 years of war, the UN's refugee agency has also launched a donation appeal to provide shelter and support.

Mass March against New Taxes & Inflation
by Qaiser Sharif

LAHORE/Gujrat: February 11: Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Sirajul Haq has rejected the government agenda to impose new taxes amounting to Rs170 billion on the masses, saying the poor people are no longer ready to render sacrifices for the pleasure and protocols of the ruling elite.

"We will not accept further taxes or mini-budget," he said while addressing a public gathering in Gujrat on Saturday on the second day of the three-day Awami March against inflation and the government's anti-poor policies.

He said the PDM, the PPP and the PTI troika failed to bring relief to the masses despite their tall claims and promises.

The ruling parties, he said, were responsible for the destruction of the economy and the miseries of the common man. He said the PDM and the PPP had taken out long marches against inflation before coming to power in April last year. He added that they made as hell the lives of the poor and middle class.

The second phase of the three-day march was concluded at Gujrat, where large number of people, including women, participated in the rally. The march would conclude on Sunday with a mass meeting at Rawalpindi's Liaqat Bagh.

The JI chief said the poor people would no longer be ready to render sacrifices for the ruling elite's pleasures and protocols. The PPP and the PML-N, he said, have been in power for decades and the PTI has also been the ruling club since 2013, as the party ruled the KPK for almost 10 years.

"I want to ask the troika what they had done for the betterment of masses. Tell your performance to the people instead of making more claims."

The rulers, he said, should sacrifice their looted money and properties instead of sucking the poor's blood.

Haq rejected the IMF conditions, ridiculing the ruling PDM and the PPP that if the decisions had to be made by the global lender, what was the logic of the political parties to pose themselves as the rulers of the country.

He said the incumbent government's policies were the continuation of the PTI. The trio, he said, was the agent of the status quo as their economic policies revolved around the debt-servicing.

He said the JI would fight for the rights of the people and was ready to challenge the politics of the tested parties.

Haq also asked the PPP to accept the JI mandate in Karachi. He said the JI will give the new mayor to Karachi, warning the ruling parties not to create hurdles in its way.

He also called for general elections all over the country, saying the political parties must initiate dialogue for transparent, free and fair polls

We Stand with Uighur Chinese Muslims

Canada's parliament on Wednesday unanimously passed a motion to take in 10,000 Uyghur refugees who fled China but are now facing pressure to return.

The move builds on a February 2021 move by Canadian lawmakers to label Beijing's treatment of Uyghurs and other Turkic Muslims in its northwestern Xinjiang territory as genocide.

Rights groups believe at least one million Uyghurs and other mostly Muslim minorities have been incarcerated in internment camps in the region, where China is also accused of forcibly sterilising women and imposing forced labor.

Tens of thousands have fled.

And according to backbench MP Sameer Zuberi, who sponsored the motion, at least 1,600 have been detained in other countries at China's behest or forcibly repatriated.

At a news conference Zuberi noted that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet voted in support of the motion, signaling the government's "intent to make this happen" even though it is nonbinding.
