Ramadan 23, 1428. October 6, 2007. #77
Two interesting khutbas: Imam al-'Asi on Jerusalem, on the
sidewalk in Washington, DC, and Dr. Siddique on boycott of
Israel and freedom for Imam Jamil in Baltimore.
DEMOCRACY, SHAMOCRACY: Pakistan's General Musharraf got
himself "re-elected" on October 6 from the sham parliament he
had set up last time. The opposition members decided to stay
away from such a ridiculous game. Strikes, protests and
demonstrations against Musharraf wracked all of Pakistan on
October 6 in spite of Ramadan. At America's orders, in one
day Musharraf issued an Ordinance cancelling all the
corruption cases against Benazir Bhutto who is working with
Musharraf for American style "democracy."
The good news is that the Red Mosque re-opened on
October 4 on the orders of the Supreme Court.
Umm Hasan, woman leader of Jamia Hafsa, entered the mosque
along with hundreds of other men and women.
On October 5, thousands attended the Friday prayers in the
Red Mosque. The intense khutba was given by a scholar
named Maulana Abdul Ghaffar who reiterated that the mission
of the martyr Abdul Rashid Ghazi will continue in the same
peaceful but uncompromising manner he had taught. As vast
numbers of people crowded the inside and the outside of the
Lal Masjid [Red Mosque], Musharraf's security forces melted
away, so to speak with their tails between their legs.
The young people have decided to repaint the mosque RED.
Meanwhile fighting continues in the northern areas. Entire
Waziristan has been put under night curfew by Musharraf's
military forces. Lightly armed people are attacking the army
in a reckless style.

Imam Warith Deen Umar on Radio:
Speaks of his Ordeal with U.S. "justice"
September 28, 2007: Imam Warith Deen Umar spoke on "al-Islam
for all" radio, live, for 20 minutes. The radio program comes
out of Brooklyn, New York and was hosted by Br. Abdul Baqi
Hamed. The Imam recounted the attacks by the U.S. government
on his apartment in the Bronx and his family home in Albany,
New York. After the unprovoked attacks, the government went
through his entire life's record and found something "wrong"
when he was 20 years old! As a result, he was sentenced to a
YEAR of home arrest and his passport and computers were
The entire fiasco started when the Zionist newspaper The
Wall Street Journal published an extensive front page
story on Imam Umar accusing him of supporting the 9.11
attacks. As a result he lost all his job opportunities, and
leading Zionists like Democrat Schumer came on TV to attack
him and his work as Islamic Chaplain in the prison system.
Imam Umar's house arrest ended only the DAY BEFORE his radio
program, so it is obvious that his Islamic spirit is
unwavering. He said that he has written an unusual book during
his arrest which will be out in the near future, inshallah.

Ramadan's Message: Be Aware of Allah: Oppose the
Oppressors. Dr. Siddique calls for Boycott of pro-Israel
Businesses and Support for Muslim Political Prisoners
October 5, 2007: Dr. Kaukab Siddique gave the Juma' khutba
and led prayers at Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in Baltimore.
Here are a few salient points:
Use Ramadan's blessings to prepare for healing, compassion and
generosity in the future. Forgive those who have wronged you
and ask Allah's help in doing good.
Focus on the life of Muhammad, pbuh, for a true Islam which is
not tainted by our own illusions.
The Fasting verses in sura al-Baqarah urge that we call on
Allah: He listens to those who call: But we in turn have to
listen to what Allah wants of us. It's an
With our spouses, too, we must be interactive. Husband and
wife are partners, garments for each other. Not one trying to
dominate the other.
Authority belongs to Allah Alone, not to husband or
Have Taqwa. Be aware of the foods and drinks we take. Are
they healthy and uncontaminated by chemicals and additives?
Have taqwa: Don't help your enemies unknowingly. ALL MUSLIMS
MUST BOYCOTT BUSINESSES which support ISRAEL, especially Coca
Cola, Starbucks, McDonalds and Nestle's. Ramadan should train
us to look at what we eat/drink very carefully and not spend
on the wrong things.
We must never forget our political prisoners unjustly put in
prison. Take a few minutes to write to Imam Jamil al-Amin and
others. We can't have Islam if we forget those who are
essential parts of our Ummah. ISRAEL has 12,000 Palestinians
in prison. USA has 26,000 Iraqis in a concentration camp.
These are all part of the Ummah of Islam.

Police out of Control: 15 Year Old African-American Girl
Brutalized by Police Officer
Ft. Pierce, Florida. October 5, 2007: A teenager was wrestled
down by a burly White police officer. She "resisted" [how a
tiny 15 year old can "resist" a big, muscular man is anyone's
guess] and the officer sprayed tear gas into her face,
The images of the violent arrest appeared on TV. The most
shocking close- up was on Fox Tv's Hannity and Colmes show.
Hannity, himself a burly White man, tried to justify the
violation. The girl had bitten the officer as he wrestled
Woman Dies in Police Custody After Arrest at Airport
Phoenix, Arizona: September 28. [Autopsy on October 2.]
Security forces stopped a White New York woman from boarding
a plane. She was treated like a security risk, tied up and
put in a tiny room. She ended up dead. An investigation
This is the way she was treated: "Officers handcuffed Carol
Ann Gotbaum behind her back, shackled her to a bench, and
left her alone in a detention room. Police said she was later
found unconscious and not breathing with the chain from the
shackle pulled against the front of her neck. It appeared
that Gotbaum got tangled as she tried to manipulate the
handcuffs from behind her to the front, police said." [Note
that the last sentence is the police "justification" of the
death. She did it to herself!]
New Trend notes that freedom and rule of law are no more in
existence in this country. Law is a front to oppress and
abuse America's people.
Dr. Kaukab Siddique invited to Major Conference critical
of terrorist entity known as "Israel."
'No More Wars For Israel' Conference to be held in
Southern California Weekend of October 12-14
Note--The conference is being dedicated to Mordechai Vanunu,
former Israeli nuclear technician who spent 18 yrs in the
hellhole of an Israeli prison for trying to warn the world
about the most dangerous nation in the world possessing the
most dangerous weapons in the world. He has recently been
convicted of violating an Israeli court order barring him
from speaking to foreign journalists and faces an additional
6 months in prison.--
Important Update--'You-know-who' is up to their old tricks
that they inherited from their Pharisee forefathers of trying
to silence any opposition to their agenda. As such, these
individuals who would dare accuse the rest of us of being
unpatriotic are trying to rob us of our rights to free speech,
freedom of assembly, freedom of the press and freedom of
worship. Elements within the Zionist extremist camp are
already in panic mode over this upcoming conference and are
calling around to all the hotels in Southern California
pretending to be Police Officers and trying to find out where
the conference is being held so that they can do their usual
business of intimidating hotel owners and others into shutting
us down. This is the reason why details of the conference are
being kept private at this time.
On the weekend of October 12-14 patriotic voices of conscience
from around the world will be gathering in southern California
to call for an end to the endless wars being waged... and yet
more planned, if the neocons get their way.... in the Middle
East by the U.S., sacrificing the lives of our sons and
daughters all for the sake of a worthless parasitic and
terrorist nation by the name of Israel that has been
subjugating the Arab Christian and Muslim population of
Palestine for nearly sixty years.
NOW is the time to stand up and let your voices be heard....
BEFORE our out-of-control president and the Israeli moles who
encircle and advise him begin what very well may be World War
III by attacking the peaceful nation of Iran....AGAIN for the
sake of the cancer in the Middle East known as Israel.
This one of a kind and important conference will be held in
Orange County, California, minutes away from John Wayne
International airport, and 30 minutes from LAX.

An Extraordinary Islamic Leader in USA: Amir Abdallah Yasin
[Part I. Intro by Br. Mansur, Cleveland, USA]
AMIR Abdallah Yasin, born June 8th, 1942, is and has
been, for the past 32 years, the Amir
(Commander, Overall Organizational Leader/CEO) of the
International Islamic Community/Congregation (Amirate) of
"Masjid Baytul-Khaliq" (Def: A Mosque named "House of The
Creator"), Inc., headquartered in Newark, New Jersey. Amir
Abdallah, who is also known as and often referred to as Imam
Abdallah, is well known, nationally and internationally, for
his Islamic work, contributions and leadership.
Amir Abdallah has held a number of offices, many up
until he presented resignations in 1988 when he, with his
family, relocated to St. Croix, U.S.V.I. Until his resignation
he had held the post of "Imam" at Newark Community Mosque
(1974-1988). He was one of the founders of the Islamic Council
of Essex County, New Jersey and its first presiding chairman
(1979-1988). After establishing New Jersey's first organized
public 'Eids (special post Ramadan and post Hajj prayers and
festivities) in 1976, Amir Abdallah was the first and
presiding chairman of the Unified 'Eid Committee of New
Jersey (1979-1988). He was one of the founders of the Islamic
Federation of North America, and served as its National
Treasurer for two years (1980-1982). Also, it is through his
efforts that the first full time Islamic grade school became
established in Newark, New Jersey (1977). The "Islamic School
of New Jersey" was planned and spawned in and under Amir
Abdallah's authority, through his appointed personnel, and
under the auspices of Masjid Baytul-Khaliq.
[The "home" of the Islamic Community of Masjid Baytul-Khaliq
is Newark Community Masjid, which is also known as the Da'wah
Center of Newark. During the 1990's it also hosted the Da'wah
College, under the Directorate of Shaykh Heshaan Jaaber.]
For two years Amir Abdallah hosted a popular New Jersey cable
program entitled "Islamic Discussions" (1985-1987). He is
currently the Secretary-General of the "Council of Imams of
Amir Abdallah has also served as one of the National
Community Leaders on the Council of a National Islamic
Community based in Atlanta, Georgia (1985-1992). He is
currently one of the principle Islamic Leaders in the
Caribbean, and one of the Virgin Islands' primary Islamic
spokespersons. For seven years he preached regularly at the
local V.I. mosque (1989-1996) and for the past 13 years has
been the Director of the "Da'wah Center & First Ribat" of the
U.S. Virgin Islands".
Primarily Amir Abdallah administers to the affairs of
his own International Organization, internationally,
nationally and locally, from his resident/organization address
in the U.S.V.I. He has also represented his New Jersey based
organization through the Islamic Society of North America, an
Indiana based national organization and through the Saudi
Arabian "Council of Mosques of the U.S. and Canada" since
During the 1980`s Amir Abdallah had been one of the
National Board members of the "National Islamic Assembly"
based in Chicago, Illinois; functioning as its Northeast
Regional Director. He is a past member of the Interfaith
Coalition of St. Croix, resigning in 1992. He has spoken,
lectured and preached at mosques, grade schools, colleges and
gatherings locally, nationally and internationally. For two
years he hosted the popular Virgin Islands radio program,
"Islamic Perspectives", which broadcast throughout the
Caribbean. Amir Abdallah is a regularly published writer, and
author of a well received book entitled Islamicizing America;
its sequel is in the works
For thirteen years he was a dedicated member of Saudi Arabia's
Propagation Team in the United States (1978-1991).
Inshaa'Allah, the culminating details of this relationship
shall be fully revealed in the sequel of Islamicizing America.
In 1997 Amir Abdallah became the U.S. National Amir for
the U.S. contingent of the World Murabitun Movement and by so
doing, absorbed that body into his existing National Amirate.
However, in August 2001, Amir Abdallah was compelled
to disband the U.S. contingent of this group.
Amir Abdallah has been an ardent worker and teacher
within the New Jersey State Prison system. In 1975 he gave
"Shahadah" (Proclamation of Faith) to several inmates at
Trenton State Prison and organized them into that
institution's first recognized (though 'system' persecuted)
Orthodox (Sunni) Islamic Community. In 1976 he began weekly
classes and Jumu'ah at Rahway State Prison and again organized
and structured its first recognized (though 'system'
persecuted) Orthodox (Sunni) Islamic Community. In 1987
Amir Abdallah, after besting a host of qualified
candidates for the post, became the first Islamic Advisor
(given the oxymoranic title of "Islamic chaplain") at Newark's
newly constructed Maximum security institution, Northern State
Prison. He organized and structured the Islamic community at
this institution, allowing only the recognition of Orthodox
(Sunni) Islam; closing the door on all aberrations during his
tenure. These Islamic Communities continue to exist to this
day. Al-Hamdu lillaah (The Praise belongs only to Allah.).
Amir Abdallah Yasin has responsibly held many other
posts too numerous to list here, but we shall note one other:

Sidewalk Khutba Denounces Israeli Occupation:
Imam Muhammad al-'Asi
October 5 -- New Trend attended Imam Al-Asi's
juma'a congregation, known as the Sidewalk Khutba, in
Washington, DC, on the occasion of Yom Al-Quds. NT
anticipated observing the annual Quds Day procession
down Massachusetts Avenue (Embassy Row). The
procession was cancelled, however, evidently due to
the lack of a permit.
Asi's khutba powerfully commemorated Quds Day. He
quoted verses from the Qur'an naming the
characteristics of the Bani Israel. Their nature, as
delineated in the Qur'an, he said, was to wreck havock
not just in a single city, country, or even
continent--but throughout the earth. The "Muslim"
heads-of-state who recognized Israel were complicit in
the subjugation of Palestine, said Asi. Imams who
refused to speak out against such misguided rulers
were "Scholars for Dollars," he said, gesturing
towards the Islamic Center.
The juma'a congregation is known as the Sidewalk,
since it is held--literally--on the pavement outside
DC's main Islamic Center. Asi commenced the practice
after he was ousted from his elected position as the
Center's imam by the Saudi government with the help of
U.S. authorities in 1983. NT asked him what would
happen if he attempted to enter the Center today. Asi
said he'd variously been barred outright from the
Center; been told he could enter but not talk to or
interact with anyone; and banned from preaching there.
NT noted that such actions appeared to constitute
particularly flagrant violations of Asi's the First
Amendment rights (his Islamic right to access the
Islamic Center notwithstanding).
Worshippers emerging from the Islamic Center proper
appeared stunned at Asi's powerful message, and
several of them stopped in the middle of the street,
gawking at the kaffiyeh-adorned Sidewalk imam.
Notably, few other imams around the DC area
commemorated Quds (Jerusalem) Day, although ostensibly
the freedom of Jerusalem--second most holy site to
Muslims--is an issue on which Muslims are in complete

Such heavy losses indicate that the U.S. is involved in mass
killings in its attempts to crush Iraq.
Al-Qaidah-in-Iraq has been hit hard by U.S. -Iraqi forces
which killed 18 fighters and captured 38, including 4 from
Saudi Arabia. FourU.S. trained police were killed and 7
