Spotlight: Israel's murder of an Islamic leader in Dubai
uncovers the major moral and material failure of the global
network of oppressive powers. First the Israelis. They sent
in a team of 35 killers to kill ONE Muslim who was not even
armed. What could be more cowardly? Then look at the
professional failure of the Israeli killers. They were
spotted by the tiny police force of Dubai. Then see the
steady revelations that western powers and Australia
provided the Israelis with support including fake passports.
Then came the hue and cry by the western powers and Australa
when their cooperation with the Israelis became known. They
said: We didn't do this international terrorist activity,
but there can be little doubt that they were involved.
Notice that none of the western powers have taken even the
trouble to call in the Israeli ambassador for a reprimand. A
Muslim country would have been put under sanctions. Finally
there is the helpless silence of the Arab rulers. Below all
of them is the Fatah faction which actually facilitated the
murder [though they say only some of them were

Turkey Imprisons Seven Senior Military Commanders for
Treachery against the People
February 25, 2010. A court in Ankara, Turkey, ordered seven
military commanders imprisoned for attempting to overthrow
the democratically elected government. Among those
imprisoned are two serving commanders of the navy and 2
retired commanders along with a retired general and two
retired colonels. Another 50 officers have also been
arrested and are being investigated.
The military general staff went into an emergency meeting
and warned the government of dire consequences. Prime
Minister Erdogan returned from Spain and had a meeting with
his interior Minister and Justice Minister.
[Ed. Note: Turkey's military has suppressed the Islamic
aspirations of the Turkish people for decades through the
imposition of a crude secularism on Turkey. Looks like the
military is weakening. More power to the people,
Late breaking: February 26. Eleven more Turkish military
officers have been sent to prison.

A Spiritual Muslimah asks: Is there a Salahuddin among US Muslims?
With thanks to: http://asqfish.wordpress.com/
Today I am thinking about him (pbuh)..............what if he
were here, and I could lay my fears, sadness, insecurities,
and complaints at his feet and ask for his advice. His
gentle patronage and his affectionate manner would smooth
over all ill feelings........
I am at the masjed to pray Maghrib and pray shukrana for my
vision after getting an almost clean bill of eye health from
my eye doctor. I want to thank my Healer (Ash- Shafi) in
His house (the masjed).
As I wait in Dhikr for the adhaan, two men are talking
loudly and making sarcastic remarks in a humorous manner
about the Imam. I remain silent trying to concentrate on my
pre Maghrib Dhikr; it is the hour of acceptance of
The conversation goes on laughing, a little, a bit of a
jeer, laced with a patronizing tone. I finally get up and
walk up to the men's side of the masjed and ask the men if
they had ever put themselves in the shoes of the Imam and
walked with his limitations and challenges?
I feel like a chastising teacher to these grown men, lax in
their manners in the masjed, doing Ghibah at the hour of
acceptance of dua. In observing their body habitus, it
reflects lack of exercise, and lack of control in intake of
food, and thus lack in control of the tongue too at the hour
before Maghrib and in the masjed.
I am shocked at myself. I am, after making up my mind that I
was not going to critique anyone in the masjed, here I am
speaking my mind..............
It is jum'a...................and I know I should not look
in front of me at the American Muslim brothers, but every
time the door opens I see a paunch entering before the body
of the American Muslim male. Even the twenty some boys have
Why is the American Muslim male, especially the ones who are
aware enough to come for Jum'a so lax? Their excesses are
reflected in their tardiness, their lack of respect of jum'a
prayers by appearing in jeans and wearing pants, which do
not loosely drape and cover their awrah as is commanded by
Their faces and their gait reflect the stupor of a Baheme,
satisfied with their state of belief and stupefied by the
load of food numbing their brain, and we wonder why we don't
have a Salahuddin to free Palestine.
Our Salahudins are buried under the tub of fatty foods that
their mothers, wives and sisters feed them. They are in a
race with those American non Muslim men to develop the
figure comprising of the beer belly (without the beer) of
the hard drinking, football watching, butt slapping, blue
collar people who know nothing better and drown their daily
frustrations in these acts.
While the light (Noor) as promised by Allah
Subhana-hu-wa-taala illuminates the heavens and the earth
and everything in between, but our modern day Salahuddins,
the American Muslim males are wearing dark glasses with
their noses pointed to the standard American practices (SAP)
which are sapping their vigor, their sight and their desire
to see and absorb what Allah subhana-hu-wa-taala has
illuminated for his ebaad. They have reached the masjed but
they have not opened or understood nor embodied that Noor
and the message:
Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The
similitude of His light is as a niche wherein is a lamp. The
lamp is in a glass. The glass is as it were a shining star.
(This lamp is) kindled from a blessed tree, an olive neither
of the East nor of the West, whose oil would almost glow
forth (of itself) though no fire touched it. Light upon
light. Allah guideth unto His light whom He will. And Allah
setteth forth for mankind similitudes, for Allah is Knower
of all things. (35) (This lamp is found) in houses which
Allah hath allowed to be exalted and that His name shall be
remembered therein. Therein do offer praise to Him at morn
and evening. (36)
We pray for Allah to send:
Men whom neither merchandise nor sale beguileth from
remembrance of Allah and constancy in prayer and paying to
the poor their due; who fear a day when hearts and eyeballs
will be overturned;
(37) That Allah may reward them with the best of what they
did, and increase reward for them of His bounty. Allah
giveth blessings without stint to whom He will. (38)
The Muslim sisters in America may have to wait a long
time....... or go elsewhere to find their Salahuddins.
Elie Wiesel and the `Iranian Problem'
Arno J. Mayer
Elie Wiesel modestly calls his benevolent foundation the
Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity. Under its flag he has
gathered the signatures of 43 Nobel laureates in support of
the resistance inside Iran. Although Wiesel was awarded the
Nobel Prize for Peace (1986), his appeal is anything but a
call for a peaceful and negotiated resolution of the
"Iranian problem" in West Asia. .. .. Wiesel also seized the
occasion to blast the Goldstone Report as "a crime against
the Jewish people." Concerning Iran Wiesel is patently in
complete harmony with Shimon Peres, the hard-line President
of Israel who incongruously shared a Nobel Peace Prize with
Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat.
War News: Afghanistan: #1
Indian, Western, Intelligence, Karzai's Police hit in
Audacious Islamic Attack in Kabul
February 26, 2010: Taliban raiders hit the guest houses of
foreigners in the heart of Kabul. The attack began with a
truck bomb followed by two martyrdom operators who entered
the target while mujahideen held off Karzai's forces in a 90
minute gun battle. The Taliban killed at least 18, mostly
high value targets, and wounded 32. The dead included 9
Indians whom India has identified as "government officials,"
[a euphemism for intelligence officers]. A senior Italian
intelligence officer and a French film maker were among
those killed along with 7 officers of the Karzai police. The
mujahideen withdrew safely after the two matyrdom operators
gave their lives.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujaddadi called the media to
take credit for the successful attack and to give
US Military Operation in Marja Fizzled: Entire Column of
American Tanks blown up. Beginning of the end for NATO in
February 25, 2010: The Taliban force of only 100 withdrew
intact from Marja after humiliating a huge American force of
15,000. The worst point for the Americans came when an
entire column of American tanks, advancing advancing abreast
ran into a network of homemade bombs placed by the Taliban.
The tanks became sitting ducks for dare devil Taliban who
knocked the tanks out with rpgs at close range.
Only FIVE Muslim fighters were killed in the entire
fighting. Probably these were Arab mujahideen who want
al-Jannah and nothing else. They held up the Americans while
the defense force withdrew.
Only a few hundred people out of a population of 20,000
returned to Marja for US offers of money. They were
photographed by the Americans and Karzai's flag was raised
to put the publicity on the corporate media in America.
The Americans stopped giving details of the battle after the
first 4 days. TheTaliban have given a detailed account.
One point the Taliban are making in their electronic media
is that with the Americans finding it so difficult to take
ONE town in spite of overwhelming odds in their favor, what
chance of success do they have because the Taliban are
holding scores of such small towns.

the Pakistani village of Darpa Khel in North Waziristan.
Mohammad Haqqani, 20 year old son of Sirajuddin Haqqani who
is known for his support for the Islamic resistance forces.
Two Afghans visiting him were also killed.
General Kayani's intelligence operatives were probably
involved in the killing because the first reports of the
strike came from Pakistani intelligence and were presented
as a victory in the pro-US Pakistani daily Dawn.
The Taliban have promised to retaliate.

Israel PM 'signed off' on Dubai hit
Hamas officials said al-Mabhouh may have created a "security
breach" that led to his death [Reuters]
Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel's prime minister, is alleged to
have given the green light for last month's assassination of
a senior Hamas figure, according to a British newspaper.
The Sunday Times, citing "sources with knowledge of Mossad",
reported on Sunday that Netanyahu visited the Israeli
intelligence headquarters in early January and, after being
brief, authorised the killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.
A rehearsal of the operation, which reportedly involved at
least 18 agents, was apparently carried out at a Tel Aviv
hotel - without detection - prior to the briefing.
While the identity of the killers remains unknown, Dubai
police have identified 11 members of the alleged hit team
through immigration records and CCTV tapes.
They identified the passports the 11 suspects were using as
coming from Britain, France, Germany and Ireland
Dhahi Khalfan, Dubai's police chief, on Saturday said
further investigation showed that some of those passports -
bearing authentic holograms - had been used to track
al-Mabhouh on earlier trips to the emirate.
Al-Mabhouh took off from Damascus, the Syrian capital, on a
flight bound for Dubai on January 19. Israel apparently
suspected he was on his way to Iran to arrange an arms
shipment for Gaza.
Around five hours after he checked in to the Al Bustan
Rotana Hotel, he was murdered.
Hamas officials are now saying al-Mabhouh may have
inadvertently made some security slip-ups by booking his
flight online, and by calling his family.
"Al-Mabhouh called his family by phone before he travelled
to Dubai and told them of his plan to stay in a specific
hotel, and he booked his travel through the internet," Salah
Bardawil, a Hamas politician in Gaza, told reporters on
"This undoubtedly created a security breach in the movements
Bardawil also said some members of rival Palestinian faction
Fatah may have had a role to play in the Hamas commander's
death, but made no accusations against the group itself.
"We hold the Mossad directly responsible for the
assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh on Arab territory and
the Mossad should, and will, bear all the consequences for
this crime sooner or later," he said.
"We are not blaming Fatah or the Palestinian Authority.
Until now, the investigations only point to collaborators or
individuals who worked with Mossad. But this does not mean
the PA of Fatah were behind the assassination. "
The Israeli government, and Mossad itself, have refused
either to confirm or deny any role in the assassination -
part a "policy of ambiguity", as Avigdor Lieberman, the
Israeli foreign minister, described it.
"Ultimately people here are quite satisifed by the outcome,
whether it was in fact the Mossad or not, whether the faces
of the operatives were shown on the CCTV cameras, whether or
not there is a certain amount of diplomatic embarrassment, "
Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland, reporting from Tel Aviv,
"That this Hamas senior commander, who was believed to be
involved in gaining finance for weapons for Hamas fighters,
the fact that he was taken out is something that most
Israelis would approve whole heartedly of.
"There is nothing politically controversial here ... the
question more is the rather messy loose ends that have been
Tensions between Israel and its European allies have,
however, mounted in the wake ofthe murder, with UK, Irish,
German and French governments all summoning their respective
Israeli ambassadors for answers regarding the use of their
On Saturday, Germany's Der Spiegel magazine reported that
the German passport used was genuine(in German).
The magazine said a man using the name of Michael
Bodenheimer approached Cologne immigration officials in June
2008 with a request for citizenship, offering pre-World War
II papers as proof of his German ancestry. The travel
document was apparently issued in 2009.
The passport was apparently obtained by stealing the
identity ofan Israeli-American.
UK authorities, meanwhile, said on Saturday that they
believe the six British passports used in the operation must
have been duplicates using numbers copied by Israeli
immigration officials, according to a Telegraph report.
The British travel documents were not biometric, meaning
they did not have computer chips embedded in them that would
make it more difficult to duplicate.
Iran: The cat is out of the bag [From NT's Iran
The Other Face of Iran: US linked Pakistani Intelligence
behind Capture of Islamic Resistance Leader in Iranian
On February 23, 2010 Iran forced down the international
flight of Kyrgiz Airlines and "captured" Abdolmalek Rigi,
the leader of the Islamic resistance in Iranian Baluchistan.
Iran presented this violation of international law as a
great victory. At the same time, the Iranians tried to claim
that Riji, who is a mujahid leader, had visited an American
military base but could not mention where is this base.
However, later reports show that this was an operation
linking Iran with pro-US intelligence group of Pakistan. The
cat was out of the bag when the Pakistani ambassador in
Tehran proudly announced that the capture of Rigi would not
have been possible without the role played by Pakistani
intelligence [which is reputedly linked to the American
Here is what the Pakistani ambassador said, as published in
the pro-government Tehran Times of February 25, 2010:
"TEHRAN - The arrest of terrorist ringleader Abdolmalek Rigi
by the Iranian security forces would not have been possible
without the help of Pakistan, Islamabad's ambassador to
Tehran said here on Wednesday.
"I must tell you that this did not happen without the help
of Pakistan, and Pakistan will continue to support Iran,"
Ambassador M.B. Abbasi told reporters at a press conference
at the Pakistani Embassy in Tehran. "
The Pakistani ambassador went on to point out that the
Pakistani regime earlier handed over a number of Islamic
activists to Iran, including Abdolmalek's brother. Here we
quote Mr. Abbasi again from Tehran Times:
"Pakistan has already shown its commitment by surrendering
some other Rigi terrorists to Iran. One brother of
Abdolmalek Rigi, Abdolhamid Rigi, has already been handed
over to Iran by the Pakistani authorities."
New Trend readers might remember that at one time Iran
tortured Abdolhamid and then put him on TV to "confess" that
he worked for the US. Other resistance fighters were quickly
executed by Iran ostensibly to avoid the need for evidence
that they worked for America.
Breaking News: February 25: As expected, Iran brought Abdol
Malek Rigi to TV to broadcast a "confession" in which he
condemned himself as an American agent! Such "confessions"
are beyond the pale of civilization and are brought about by
torture and fear of death. Iran is smearing itself with
these acts against basic human rights. Even more shameful is
the activity of the Iranian propaganda branch disguised as
media [known as Press TV] which is proudly dissemnating this

mujahideen who had taken refuge in Iran following the US
bombing of Afghanistan. Iran cooperated with the US against
the mujahideen both in Afghanistan and in Iraq. It joined
the US and the UN in imposing sanctions on Iraq. The Iraqi
air force which took refuge in Iran to avoid US attack was
seized by Iran in violation of Islamic values.
Iran has done much for its people but it is straying further
and further away from Islamic ideals.
Helping US Muslims Understand Islam
Specific Advice for Modern Transformation from our Leader
By: Shamim Siddiqui [The writer lives in Long Island, New
York, and is the author of numerous outstanding books on
[The writer uses the term Rasulullah, which simply means
Messenger of Allah, pbuh.]
Human society has reached the state of complete moral
bankruptcy, especially after the great global economic
disaster of 2008-09. It needs men of character in every
field of life to set its house in order and deliver goodness
in each and every sector to make its abode worth living with
dignity and honor.
We see today that morally the world is collapsing. Trust in
its leadership is touching the zero point. Corruption in all
its shapes has defaced it face. Greed and fraudulent
practices are rampant everywhere and in each sector of our
social, economic and political life. Exploitation in its
wake has emerged as the fashion of the day. Maximization of
personal profit, gains and fame has empowered individuals in
every field of trade, commerce, business enterprises and
entrepreneurship to run their affairs with total greed and
false desires. In consequence, the poor are getting poorer
and the rich richer day by day.
This situation is producing only zulm (oppression) and
denying even two square meals to millions and millions
inhabitants of poor, underdeveloped countries including vast
regions of Asia, Africa, Latin America and many parts of
Europe and America too. There are 36 million people who are
leading a life below the poverty line in the USA alone; not
to say of the sub-Sahara regions of Africa and teaming
millions of India who hardly sleep with something in their
belly. The situation around the world has, thus, reached t a
very precarious point and needs immediate attention towards
getting it corrected. But who could do it - not the corrupt
and deceitful secular leadership around the world - then
To correct this disastrous situation, honest leadership,
with dependable, trustworthy character should be in power in
each and every country of the world and in every sector of
the world economy - in trade, in commerce and in industry
both at individual and collective levels. The question is:
Who can do this job? Where is its blueprint? Where is its
inspiring model for all times to come?
This agenda is also missing from the development plan of
each and every country and nation around the world.
Different faiths and religious practices too lack in this
respect, except Islam and the life pattern of Prophet
Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be to him) wherein it
is present in a predominant form but, unfortunately, the
Muslims too stand nowhere for doing good to others.
Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be to him)
carried out his plan through character building as the basic
need of the Islamic System which he introduced and
established in the human society for delivering justice and
fair play to human species. Let us see how he did it .
Remember, he saw character as the paramount need of the
system he was assigned to profess, practice and deliver to
mankind for attaining eternal bliss in both the worlds.
When the Second Wahi [revelation] came to him after the gap
of a few months [called "Fitrah"], he was assigned the
Mission of his life in these words:
"Rise and warn. And glorify thy Lord [by establishing His
authority]" - The Qur'an - Al-Muddassir: 74: 2-3]
Along with it the Kalimah "La Ilaha Illallah" was also
entrusted to him for calling the humanity to the fold of
Allah, the Creator and the Sustainer of this cosmos.
Rasulullah (peace and blessings of Allah be to him) now
needed three things to accomplish the mission of his
1. The Guidance - the Blueprint of the System he was to
establish on earth for the deliverance of mankind;
2. A team of dependable and trustworthy character to work as
the founder workers of the system and the builders of the
edifice of the Islamic society and state and to serve as
models for mankind till eternity;
3. The land where to establish the system in the form of a
society and state to serve as its model.
Now let us see how it worked out:
1. The Creator and Sustainer Himself sent the details
of the Guidance - the System, the Blueprint about what to do
and how to do, and completed it in gradual process in 23
years and perfected it with his last words during his first
and the last Hajj:
"This day I have perfected your Deen for you and completed
My favor unto you and have chosen for you Al-Islam as your
Deen" [Ref: Al-Qur'an. Surah Al-Maidah 5: 3]
2. Rasulullah (peace and blessings of Allah be to him)
himself started building the requisite team of trustworthy
men of character in ones and twos through his "person to
person" contact - inviting each to the fold of Allah,
trimming and molding their life to be obedient to their
Sustainer, feeling always accountability to Him in the life
after death for all their actions and deeds and following
his own life pattern as its model.
He was remarkably assisted in his efforts by his beloved
companions, especially Abu Bakr Siddiq, Musab bin Umair and
others like them. Through this process he built his team of
trusted workers [we call them Sahabah, may Allah be pleased
with them, out of reverence] who were always ready to
sacrifice their time, talents, energies and resources
(wealth) for the mission of Rasulullah (peace and blessings
of Allah be to him). Thus, he built his team of dependable
and trustworthy people to accomplish his mission of the
Iqamah of Allah's Deen on earth.
They were the luminaries of the time and for all times to
come. They carried the mission of Rasulullah (peace and
blessings of Allah be to him) within the next hundred years
to the vast tracts of Asia, Europe and North Africa and
delivered justice and equity to lands that came under the
sovereignty of the Islamic State.
Human rights were well protected and taken care of in every
field of life. All citizens were equals before law. No
discrimination and no exploitation was permitted in any
Basic needs of each citizen was guaranteed through Islam's
own self-sustained welfare system. Corruption was rooted out
altogether. Service to humanity was the fashion of the day.
It was all a boon for human society.
Through these efforts, Rasulullah got 124 team mates in
Makkah, and through the magnificent Da'wah efforts of Musab
bin Umair in Madinah, he got 63 from the tribe of Aus and
176 from the tribe of Khazraj. He arranged this team in the
battle of Badr and prayed to Allah on the eve of the battle
O Allah! Send your promised help other none will be left to
worship You["La Tabud"].
His promised help came and the idolaters of Makkah who had
attacked Madinah arrogantly were routed . Seventy of their
stalwarst were killed and 70 became prisoners in the hands
of Rasulullah (peace and blessings of Allah be to him). They
were all set free after paying some nominal ransom either in
cash or in kind.
3. Land: While at Makkah, Rasulullah tried his best to
find a place to make the headquarters of the Islamic
Movement. First he tried for Ethiopia. Then he himself went
to T'aif but could not succeed due to stiff opposition by
the idolaters. Allah then prepared the ground in Madinah
where he migrated with his companions in the thirteenth year
of his Prophethood.
4. The Trustworthy Character that Rasulullah built in his
beloved companions delivered justice, peace and equity to
human society, the suffering humanity of his time, and for
many centuries together its blessings continued. However,
this job was subsequently neglected, even given up, causing
decay and decadence in Muslim societies. The neglect of
duties paved the way towards the emergence of kingdoms,
empires, tyrants and many corrupt oppressive regimes within
the body politic of Muslim countries, surrendering
ultimately to the secular West that excelled in science and
5. As such, in spite of the fact, that the west is dominating
the world's socio-economic-political scene for the last two
hundred years, it could not deliver justice to mankind in
any form. Its civilization stands on some secular "values",
the shifting sands of time. I have drawn its fathomless
condition in the beginning to depict that it could not and
cannot deliver good to mankind as it has nothing to offer to
man except lust, greed and false sense of arrogance with
military and economic superiority to subjugate the weak and
6. Hence man needs the character that Rasulullah built at the
outset of the seventh century C.E., if humanity today wants
justice, peace and fair play in every field of life at
individual and collective levels. This is the job of the
Muslim Ummah to fulfill this paramount human need as Allah
has commissioned it to do. Now let us see what the Ummah
possesses today out of the three requisites that were the
prime need of Rasulullah to accomplish his mission. Let us
examine what we have to do towards meeting our obligation in
the midst of conflicting rival ideologies and dogmas and the
extraordinary selfish behavior of man that is full of all
kinds of greed and caprices.
7. What the Muslim Ummah possesses today out of the three
requisites that Rasulullah needed to fulfill his mission
towards establishing the authority of our Lord can be traced
out as follows:
1. The Guidance - the Blueprint [the Qur'an] is available,
Alhamdulillah, with us intact in its original form, language
and shape and the life pattern of Prophet Muhammad (peace
and blessings of Allah be to him) in its minutest details to
follow as the most perfect model till eternity;
2. The Land: There are currently 57 countries where Muslims
are in majority and have their own governments but have
nothing to do with the Islamic System of life though they
all claim that they are Muslims and their state "religion"
3. The trustworthy leadership that Rasulullah built for the
attainment of his mission: That is missing altogether at
each level in the context of modern world whereas it is the
most urgent need of the Muslim Ummah and that of the human
society at large. The world cannot solve any of its ever
surmounting problems in absence of that honest,
God-conscious and trustworthy leadership.
The Islamic Movements around the world have been conscious
of this fact from their very outset and were and are trying
their best to build the requisite team of trustworthy Da'ees
but not in the same proportion as the time needs and the
Ummah requires. All the movements are bogged down
practically in the day to day problems of their respective
countries, the legacies of colonial rules, and, as such,
could give little concentration to this basic requirement of
This is one of the basic reasons that why so far they could
not succeed in their genuine efforts to get the Deen of
Allah established anywhere in the Muslim world and its
possibility in near future too looks like a distant dream as
the west is constantly and consciously putting stumbling
blocks in their way everywhere and creating problem after
problem every now and then.
The above discussion confirms, beyond any shadow of doubt,
the need and urgency of dependable and trustworthy
characters for human society in every walk of life and in
every country to deliver justice and equity to entire
humanity, both to the affluent and the have-nots. It equally
shows that meeting this requirement is the ultimate
responsibility of the Muslim Ummah to get themselves first
out of the mess that is infested in every segment of Muslim
societies. The Ummah, especially the Islamic Movements and
the Muslim leadership has to fulfil this obligation without
making any delay to get their own house in order and set the
model before the suffering humanity to follow.
If Muslims can devote their time and energy solidly in
building the requisite Team with the ennobling character on
the pattern Rasulullah (peace and blessings of Allah be to
him) inculcated in his beloved companions and set models for
others to follow, human societies will rush to them for
guidance and the Muslim leadership will then be able to lead
the destiny of mankind afresh in the way the Muslims of the
first century Hijrah did.
The life pattern of Rasulullah was the model for his time
and it is the most perfect model for our time and for all
times to come till eternity. Muslims of today have to
undertake it as the universal challenge of the time. Allah
will then shower His blessings all around us as per His
"commitment" through the Verse 69 of Surah Al-Ankabut: "As
for those who strive in Us [struggle for His Deen] We surely
guide them to Our path, and Lo! Allah is with the
This path to struggle in the way of Allah is wide open and
the passage to the goal is equally surmountable if we could
muster equivalent will, courage and stamina to accomplish it
within the next decade or so at the most. Muslims in the
west, especially their leadership, have greater
responsibility to prove themselves as trustworthy models to
their fellow citizens. Only then they will be able to wash
away the hate campaign against Islam and the Muslims when
they prove that their character is of 24 caret gold and they
are extremely sincere and honest in doing well to the people
of the land. Muslims' survival in all the plural societies
in the East like India and in the West like the USA rotates
on how fast they follow the footprints of Rasulullah (peace
and blessings of Allah be to him) and transform themselves
into trustworthy characters in the midst of other Abrahamic
faiths at one hand and the pagan world on the other. Only
then the human race will open its heart and mind to accept
the leadership of Rasulullah as the most perfect model and
the Muslims as the saviors of mankind.

Essential to Islam.
Liberation of Muslim Lands comes First
by Shamsuddin [Writing to New Trend from Pakistan]
LAHORE, Feb. 26: The message of the 12th of Rabiul Awal was
that the Muslim Ummah revert to Jehad for establishing the
superiority of Deen and the Muslim rulers felt pride in
obeying the Holy Prophet ( PBUH) instead of worldly masters,
the Jamaat e Islami chief Syed Munawar Hasan, said on
Addressing the Friday congregation at Masjid Al Kausar,
Malir, Karachi, he said this recipe alone could free the
Muslims from the infidels' tyranny and restore their lost
glory, says a JI press release issued from Mansoora.
In the eyes of Washington, only those accepting US slavery
were praiseworthy but the slaves of Muhammad( pbuh) would
never accept US subjugation under any circumstances, he
. Syed Munawar Hasan said, during the last two decades,
foreign troops led by the US were perpetrating tyranny and
oppression on the Muslims in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen,
Chechnya, Lebanon, and Pakistan but ironically the Muslims
were being blamed and targeted for terrorism and extremism.
He said, tolerating oppression was not a sign of bravery. On
the other hand, supporting the Muslims in their struggle
against tyranny was in line with the Holy Prophet's
The JI chief said that in order to malign Jehad, the Western
Media, at the instance of the US, had been dishing out false
news and circulating these through the ISPR. [Military news
group.] He said the activities of the Muslims against the
non-,Muslim forces in Palestine, Afghanistan, Kashmir and
Iraq were real Jehad that would end up in the liberation of
occupied Muslim states. He said the oppression of the
non-Muslim powers had compelled the Muslim youth to rise
against the tyrants. Street terrorism was the weapon of the
weak people, he said. The Muslim masses, he said, were more
worried about the state terrorism of the US-crony Muslim
rulers than the attacks of the aliens as this had increased
terrorism and lawlessness.
Syed Munawar Hasan pointed out that the Holy Prophet (pbuh)
during his ten years of life at Madina, as also his
companions, continuously waged Jehad against the infidels.
The Holy Quran contained as many as 486 verses that were
considered as verses on Jehad. The Muslim Ummah today, was
confronting hardships on all sides and the enemy was taking
it as soft fodder while the US was labeling Jehad as
terrorism only to bring it bad name However, the Muslims all
over the world had raised the banner of Jehad to demonstrate
their love for the Holy Prophet (pbuh).
The JI leader said, the objectives of the Hizbullah in
Lebanon, Hamas in Palestine and Hizbul Mujahideen in
occupied Kashmir are the same. In Kashmir, 700,000 Indian
troops have been committing atrocities on the Kashmiri
Muslims for the last 22 years and violating human

HHRD Team in Port Au Prince, Haiti
Weekly Update Narrated by Shahid Hayat [US Executive
Director HHRD] in Haiti
Saturday Feb 13, 2010 - Visit to Leogane
Helping Hand for Relief & Development (HHRD) Team visits
Leo-Gane (Leogane), which is 30 km from Port Au Prince.
Leogane is located very close to the epicenter of the Jan
12th, 2010 earthquake and suffered great damages (up to 90 %
of the town has been reported to be damaged). Ministry of
Health, Haiti has identified Leogane as one of the priority
areas for medical assistance and WASH (Water, Sanitation and
Hygiene): Other priority areas are Carrefour, Grand Goave,
Petit Goave, and Jacmel.
HHRD Team met with the local Leogane community to establish
a shelter village in the area for 100 families. This will
benefit about 1,000 people, who are homeless after the
earthquake. The Local community and HHRD agreed to build
these shelters as soon as possible. We are in process to
coordinate with the local Government and UN authorities to
facilitate the basic infrastructure like electricity, water
and sanitation. Br. Saqib Ateeq (NJ) and Dr. Mubashir Saeed
(Chicago, IL) join the HHRD Team in Haiti today.
Sunday Feb 14, 2010 - Vaccinations
HHRD Team arranged Td vaccination at two locations: One at
Masjid Toaheed and second one close to the security office
of Br. Yousuf, who is a local Muslim community leader. In
these two locations, HHRD Team vaccinated more than three
hundred women, children, and men. Dr. Mubashir Saeed of
Chicago, IL; Dr. Mohammad Panday of Kansas City, MO; and the
rest of the HHRD team spent the entire day in these
locations, advising local communities about prevention from
various diseases as a result of an earthquake. A Team of
Doctors from Bangladesh visits HHRD camp and appreciates
these services. They promise to join our mobile health
clinic in different areas from the next day (Monday).
Monday Feb 15, 2010 - Mobil Clinic in Masjid
Today is our regular day for the mobile health clinic and it
is scheduled at Masjid Allah-u-Akbar. This Masjid is still
standing, despite being surrounded by flattened buildings.
Allah SWT saved this Masjid making this view is quite
We leave our base camp in two vehicles with medicines and
volunteers. Today is another hectic day. We are well-staffed
with six doctors and two paramedical staff to serve about
200 women, children, and men. Three doctors and one
paramedical are from Bangladesh, including Dr. Mamoon, Dr.
Chowdhary, Dr. Shahid Ul Islam and Raza Ul Karim
(Paramedical Staff). Also we have Dr. Mohammad Panday
(Kansas, MO), Dr. Mubashir Saeed (Chicago, IL) and Dr.
Daniel (Port Au Prince, Haiti), plus we have one more
Paramedical Staff from Port Au Prince.
HHRD team serves more than 200 patients from morning till
evening. Our medical camp is much appreciated by the
community. Even before our arrival, with the knowledge of
our team coming, the local community made basic arrangements
and are were very supportive in further helping us to
arrange and set up the clinics, bringing the chairs-&-tables
and covering the whole area with sheets to protect us and
the medication we brought from the suns heat.
Earlier, Br. Saqib (NJ) left us to coordinate with UNO
about medications, and up until now, with the Grace of Allah
SWT, the HHRD Team has been purchasing all the medications
(mostly from USA and some from Dominican Republic), sending
them through US volunteer doctors going to Haiti. HHRD Team
has been utilizing hundreds of dollars worth of these
medicines every day. Br. Saqib has meetings with various
officials to find out how we can coordinate with different
agencies, who are working in the area. He discovers that we
can get some medicines at a low cost; but that needs
permission from Haiti Government officials. Also he is able
to coordinate with UNICEF for some other medicines: However
that needs more paper work before we can start to receive
those medicines from UNICEF.
Tuesday Feb 16, 2010 - Health Clinic in Nazon
Today we are leaving our base camp at 9am as we are
scheduled to set-up our mobile health clinic in the Nazon,
which is another affected area (70% of the houses are
destroyed, making people homeless and living on the
streets). Today we have four doctors, two paramedical staff,
and six community volunteers.
The Community is very happy to see us as we arrived after
our last visit there some seven days ago. We serve their
health needs with proper medicines. Dr. Mamoon and Dr.
Shahid Ul Islam from Bangladesh; Dr. Mohammad Panday from
Kansas, MO; Dr. Mubashir Saeed from Chicago, IL and Dr.
Daniel from Port Au Prince, Haiti are serving, along with
Raza Ul Karim (Bangladeshi Paramedical Staff and one Haitian
The local community is very supportive, even at times it is
hard to set up clinics on the streets due to difficulty in
controlling the crowd. But Alhamdulillah local brothers help
us to control the crowd and set up the clinics. They remain
with us until we are done and ready to get back to our base
camp. Today we have served more than 150 people in this area
and gave them about $1,000 worth of medicines.
On the other hand, Br. Saqib (NJ) visits Haiti Government
Office to get the permission for the medicines and
Alhamdulillah he is able to get the permission after waiting
for more than two hours. We will get medicines for low price
after this permission InshaAllah.
We had earlier plans to visit Leo-Gane (Leogane), where we
have to set up our shelter village and meet with local
community: However it is too late now and our local
representative advises us that we should not go there late
evening because of rough roads and other security issues.
InshaAllah we will try to close our clinic early and then
visit Leogane tomorrow, so as to discuss with the local
community the mechanism and plans for establishing the
