The Saga of a Woman who Renounced the Aga Khani Cult & Embraced Islam
New Trend Report

Several years back Sis. Gulshan, who was an Ismaili, a follower of the Aga Khan, embraced Islam. Since then she has been hounded by cyber terrorists who have been indulging in an orgy of abuse and pornographic hate against her. As she stood firm on her newly found Islamic faith, the attacks on her became more and more personal and vehement.
The cyber terrorists use fake names and their identiities have still not been traced by Muslims who decided to defend the sister's honor and personal security.
In turn Muslims have investigated Aga Khan's cult and questioned its "right" to attack a Muslim woman. This was then used as an excuse by the abusers to attack Islam itself, including great Companions of the Prophet, pbuh, such as Abu Huraira, r.a., and Khalid ibn al-Waleed, r.a., as well as Caliph Usman, r.a., and his compilation of the Qur'an, as well as those wives of the Prophet, pbuh, who were Christian or Jewish but embraced Islam.

All these attacks by the supporters of Aga Khan have been answered by Muslims. However, the latest attack is most egregious. It is the claim that the Prophet, pbuh, had only one daughter, Fatima, r.a., and that Ruqayya, r.a., was not his biological daughter.
Here is the answer to this attack by Kaukab Siddique:

Brief Outline of the Great Struggle of Ruqayya, r.a., Forgotten owing to Sectarian Propaganda

Documentation that the Prophet, pbuh, had more than one daughter and Ruqayya, r.a., was a great Islamic woman:

The Qur'an says "daughters" not daughter. Here is the verse:
"O Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their outer garments over their pesons [when going out]: That is most convenient for them that they should be known and not molested. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."

Here is documentation from Hadith:

"Ruqayya, was the daughter of the Messenger of Allah, pbuh, and her mother was Khadija, the daughter of Khuwaylad. Before receiving prophethood, Muhammad, pbuh, had married her to Utba, the son of Abi Lahab bin Abdul Mutallib who divorced her soon thereafter before taking her as his wife because in the meantime the prophet received prophethood and the verses condemning Abu Lahab were revealed in the Qur'an. She never went to Utba's home."

"She embraced Islam the very day her mother, Khadija, r.a., embraced Islam." [Among the very first to embrace Islam.]

"She was among the first women to take the oath of allegiance [baiat] to the Prophet, pbuh."

"She was married to one of the greatest Companions of the Prophet, Usman, r.a."

" She did hijra TWICE to Africa with Usman, r.a.. The Prophet, pbuh, said this is the first hijra in all of human history for the sake of Allah since the time of the Prophet Lut."

"Ruqayya suffered greatly [for Allah's sake] during hijra and lost her unborn child through miscarriage."
All quotes from Tabqat ibn Saad, first and earliest collection of biographical Hadith.

[Comment: If you read the Qur'an, you will realize that the Hijra by Ruqayya, r.a., puts her above other women, including Fatima, r.a. who was also a great woman. We love Fatima, r.a., but facts must be above feelings.]
"And their Lord has accepted of them and answered them: 'Never will I allow to be lost the work of any of you, be you male or female, you are one community: those of you who have done hijra from their homes or been driven out from there, or suffered harm in My Cause, or fought, or been slain..................."
