From Imam Badi Ali [Jamaat al-Muslimeen North Carolina]. See
Jamaat al-Muslimeen's message from Sis. Ashira below.
Spotlight #1: Muslim immigrants often think: Should I tell
the truth or "just make it." They don't realize that they
can tell the truth AND "make it." There is really no
obstacle for Muslims to be themselves. The obstacles are in
Spotlight #2. Muslim leaders often USE people to get ahead.
This is unIslamic. If you are really a leader, allow people
to carry you. It's a natural process. By contrast, USING
people leads to disillusionment and disunity.
Joe Lieberman shows his hand.
In an interview on Fox TV, May 4, Senator Joe Lieberman from
Connecticut suggested that he would call for a new law to
strip Muslim Americans connected with "terrorism" of their
citizenship AUTOMATICALLY without due process of law. Thus
he is undercutting the Constitution of the United States.
Lieberman, a Jew, is known for his blatant support of
Israel and he led the resolution to launch the war on Iraq
under the Bush regime. The Zionists in America have become
overconfident and are openly cutting at the very foundations
of America. Lieberman is coming under criticism from
Americans across the spectrum of opinion.
The word "Hadith" as used in the Qur'an.
See research below.
During Iranian President Ahmedinejad's visit to the US,
American Jews went on the rampage with extraordinary abuse
of Iran. Mark Glenn, our Christian friend from Idaho,
describes this Jewish frenzy under the metaphor of BIG
MOMMA. Here is Mark Glenn again at his best. The language is
kinda rough but the message is clear and good reading:
Latest war news: According to carefully compiled reports by
icasualties service from western sources, 34 elite NATO
troops were killed by the Taliban in Afghanistan during
April 2010 and 9 have been killed during the first 6 days of
May. This was the result of coordinated guerrilla warfare
by the Taliban mujahideen. There were NO Taliban losses.
In the latest fighting, a Canadian trooper was killed and 11
Danish troops wounded. NATO cannot find the Taliban.
The US media simply do not report the fighting because the
situation is very bad. The US-NATO are stuck.
He stood up for the rights of 5 US Muslims handed over by
Major Crime Against Human Rights in Pakistan: The Murder of
Khalid Khawaja. Government Hand Suspected.
Info from New Trend's Pak observers.
On March 25, 2010 Khalid Khawaja, Pakistan's most famous
human rights activist, disappeared while on the way to
Waziristan via Bannu. On May 1, his body was found in a
mountain road 7 km south of Mir Ali in North Waziristan. .
He had been shot in the chest and the head.
The group which kidnapped him is unknown. It calls itself
"Asian Tigers" but there is no such group. Our analysis is
that there are bands of criminals at work where army action
has smashed the rule of law. These groups commit serious
crimes, it is alleged, on behalf of the government and the
military and then try to blame the Taliban. [The two people
with Khawaja were released on May 6.]
After his kidnapping, the gangster chief carried out an
elaborate disinformation campaign. Videos were issued in
which a badly beaten up Khalid Khawaja was shown confessing
to be involved in the attack on the Red Mosque. This
disinformation is important for the Pakistani regime because
Red Mosque and Jamia Hafsa have become the rallying cries of
the Islamic resistance.
The kidnaper also pretended to be a Taliban leader and
called Asia Times to plant stories to defame and then later
to try to connect his murder to al-Qaida. The Taliban came
out strongly in favor of Khalid Khawaja and were ready to
negotiate his release. The kidnapers hurriedly murdered him.
The government and the military are very silent on the
murder. There are three reasons which point to the Paki
government's and military's involvement. Perhaps US
involvement may also turn up:
Khalid Khawaja was going through the high court of Pakistan
to block major American initiatives, three in a row.
These three major initiatives seem to have sealed Khalid
He blocked the return of five US Muslims handed over by CAIR
- MAS to FBI to the Pakistani police. A US plane was ready
to take them back to the tender mercies of US "justice" when
Khalid got a block order from the High Court. They are still
in Pakistan, alhamdulillah.
He filed suit in the High Court to get a legal verdict
against the bombing of Pakistani villages by US drones [with
targeting info from the Pak army].
He blocked the handing over of three Taliban leaders who had
come on a peace initiative to Pakistan and were arrested in
a joint raid by Pakistani police and the FBI.
The disinformation campaign foisted through Asia Times,
Dawn, etc has completely failed because the funeral prayers
were led by the surviving leader of the Red Mosque Maulana
New Trend condoles with the family of Khalid Khawaja. His
wife Sis. Shamama Khalid is indeed a great Muslim woman,
unwavering in her spirit of total sacrifice for Islam.
Please see her message below. Such are the women who make
Islam invincible in Pakistan. Please scroll way down. Also
see a photo of the funeral.

What happened to: Innocent till proven Guilty! No?
Faisal Shahzad Story: Is USA that Weak? Why the Avalanche of
Media Attacks on Pakistan?
by Kaukab siddique, PhD
The cable TV channels and news channels have been burning up
"reporting" on a non-event, something that didn't happen. No
one was killed. No one was injured. The alleged attacker has
been arrested. The contraption he had put together did not
work and by all accounts' was amateurish.
Then, why this flood of news coverage, all the way down from
President Obama to the lowly small town reporter? We are
being asked by the media to believe that AMERICA is UNDER
ATTACK. Think of the stupidity of the lie we are being asked
1. USA is the most powerful country in the world. How could
it possibly be hurt by a contraption in a vehicle which was
a total failure?
2. Even if it had been a successful bomb attack, can that
defeat or weaken America in any way?
3. US bombs Afghanistan and Pakistan every week. Has that
weakened the Taliban in either country? By all accounts they
have grown stronger.
4. Compare the Taliban and USA. Is there any comparison
possible in terms of firepower and ability to reach
5. The Zionists are quickly preparing the public for further
US attacks or actual invasion of Pakistan. The demonization
of Pakistan is well underway.
To the American people I would say:
1. Such crazy attempts at violence are a spillover from the
war USA is waging against the Muslims of Iraq, Afghanistan,
Pakistan, Somalia, and the support we give indirectly to the
slaughter of Muslims in Kashmir, Chechnya and Nigeria along
with sanctions on Sudan and Iran.
2. The media should be pushed to present scenes from US
attacks on villages in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Do you know
that such bombing raids are routinely carried out by the US
air force every month, sometimes weekly? Pictures of bombing
by USAF would give context to crazy attempts like that of
3. Israel is the main force for war against Muslims and it
works for war through American Jewish groups and Christian
Zionists. If Israel is allowed to get away with its use of
American militaries against the world of Islam, more and
more Muslims will join al-Qaida and the Taliban. Islam is on
the upsurge around the globe and attempts to crush Islamic
resistance by bombing and internal subversion simply
motivate more and more Muslims to join the resistance. If
even 1% of the 1.7 billion Muslims of the world join the
resistance, America will face total disaster in its foreign
policy. Remember that for every one who joins Jihad,
hundreds of thousands support it in other ways.
4.Do not panic when a bomb plot is announced. Try to ask
yourself, why are the Zionist media and right wing
extremists presenting this attempted bombing as a threat to
ALL of AMERICA?
5. American cities are in serious trouble. Murder, rape,
robberies and general dehumanization of the American people
is accelerating. Is the government trying to create
diversions by bringing up these silly attempts by Shahzad
and the Christmas Day bomber? Even the attack on Mumbai,
India was treated as if it was an attack on America.
Remember, the corporate media are heavily slanted by
Zionists, be they Jews like Larry King, Wolf Blitzer, Jon
Stewart, Charlie Rose and a host of others [including the
entire Bloomberg news], or "Christians" like O'Reilly,
Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, Pat Robertson and many
6. Without a push back from the American people, the
warmongers will lead America into endless war with Islam
which the Islamic forces will probably win, inshallah,
because they are fighting on their own terrain.
To the Pakistani Taliban I would says, if they are behind
1. Stop sending contradictory videos. Shahzad was poorly
trained. In addition, he lacked commitment and was not
willing to sacrifice his own life.
2. Such attempts to attack America are futile even as
3. Shahzad had taken the oath of loyalty to the US making
God his witness. Under Islam, he had no right to attempt
4. Such attempts give the impression that Pakistani Taliban,
very different from the battle hardened Afghan Taliban, are
poorly organized and weak in technology. They are fighting
the US and Pakistani militaries which are among the most
technologically advanced in the world. Such attempts create
a poor impression of the Pak Taliban.
5. Shahzad is the son of a retired Pakistani air force Air
Vice Marshal. The Pakistani air force has killed as many, if
not more, Muslims, Taliban and "suspected" Taliban, than the
US air force. If your own country's air force is killing
you, what's the point of complaining about America?

So, how do they know if any of the men, women, and children
murdered by the drone was the one person they were after?

Times Square Bombing attempt. Who does not Get Punished or
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen New York City]
New York City - On May 1st, there was an attempted car
bombing in Times Square. Two African-American Vietnam war
veterans, Duane Jackson and Lance Orton, alerted police when
they saw smoke coming out of the black Nissan Pathfinder.
They were working as t-shirt vendors in the area.
Interestingly, Mayor Bloomberg declared the white policeman,
who first responded, as the real hero and took him out to
dinner! Policeman Wayne Rhatigan was responsible for
leading a team of officers who evacuated Times Square.
Isn't that his job? The Street Vendor Project, an advocacy
group, is upset that the two vendors were not invited to
this high-end mid-town restaurant. They have started a
campaign to get them honored, as well.
I have searched many articles in Online newspapers and none
of them mention the names of these two vendors. Surprise,
surprise. Ironically, the police are notorious for
harassing street vendors and disrupting their efforts to
earn a living.
There are reports that this threat may have come from
I am not saying that Americans are not angry about the
current state of affairs. I will not say that an American
is incapable of displaying his/her rage toward this
government in this manner. As a matter of fact, a few years
ago, a white male was seen leaving the area where a flash
bomb was used at the Times Square Army Recruitment Center.
He has never been caught.
All of this police activity and these types of things happen
in, arguably, the busiest area in America!
It was only a few months ago, that the New York City Police
Department was looked over for state funding. This happened
because the police downplay criminal statistics to make New
York City appear safer than it is, today. In an effort to
under-report crime stats, crime victims have been
discouraged from making reports and told to leave police
Ever since then, there have been all of these efforts to
create fear in New York City Subways, for instance. When
the Chechens retaliated against the Russians and bombed
passenger trains, I saw heavily armed soldiers in the New
York City subways. However, Police Commissioner Raymond
Kelly stated that there was no indication that New York City
subways were under any threat.
The fertilizer found in the Pathfinder was non-explosive.
The timer and three propane tanks found in the car were not
hooked up properly although, it did go off to some extent.
Even a dedicated high schooler could have pulled off a more
Finally, they found the owner of the vehicle but, state that
he is not even a suspect. Meanwhile, Muslims are being
unjustly imprisoned for having unfavorable thoughts about
America and White, non-Muslims are still being treated with
For instance, A white male Pace University student,
recently, infiltrated the New York City Subway system and
was found roaming a dark tunnel with a book bag containing
two vials of cyanide. He was immediately treated as a
threat to himself! When he was caught he told police that
he was going to kill himself and wanted to go somewhere
where his body would never be found.
Whether his story is believable or not, there is still a
serious disparity in how non-whites are handled compared to
whites, under these circumstances.
White-supremacist beliefs and strong anti-Muslim sentiment
play a major role in this atmos-phere, rather than go after
the true threat to America, which has proven to be the angry

The Wisdom Fund
Times Square, NY: Muslim 'Leaders' Never Miss an Opportunity
to Miss an Opportunity
by Enver Masud
The name of the alleged perpetrator of the New York, Times
Square bombing plot had barely hit the news headlines, when
Muslim "leaders" began mouthing the usual platitudes.
"Muslims Welcome Arrest in Times Square Bomb Plot' -- from
the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations
"MPAC Commends Law Enforcement's Swift Action to Apprehend
Suspected Times Square Plotter" -- from the Washington based
Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC).
"ISNA Commends Efforts of Law Enforcement, Condemns
Attempted Bombing at Times Square, and Lauds Alert Citizens"
-- from the Plainfield, Indiana based Islamic Society of
North America (ISNA).
Assuming that the alleged perpetrator, Faisal Shahzad, 30 --
who was taken into custody at Kennedy Airport on board an
Emirates flight to Dubai -- is guilty, did Muslim "community
leaders" stop to ask, "Why"?
Apparently not, and neither did the news media, despite
nonstop coverage of the event for several days.
Assuming, for the purpose of argument only, that Shahzad is
guilty as charged:
Was the preemptive war on Iraq to find nonexistent weapons
of mass destrutction, where well over one million Muslims
have been killed by US forces, a factor in why Shahzad made
the crude attempt to blow up his rigged van?
Was the unlawful war on Afghanistan (it was not authorized
by the UN Security Council, and to this day the US FBI has
not charged Bin Laden with the September 11, 2001 attack on
the US), where countless more Muslims have been killed, a
Was the undeclared, unlawful, but very obvious war on
Pakistan, where hundreds of Muslims have been killed by
drones and US special forces, a factor?
Muslim leaders, never missing an opportunity to miss an
opportunity, failed to ask the all important, "why".
The Sunday London Times reported that Aliou Niasse, a street
vendor selling framed photographs of New York, saw the "car
containing the bomb, which pulled up right in front of his
cart on the corner of 45th street and Broadway next to the
Marriott hotel. Said Niasse:
I didn't see the car pull up or notice the driver because I
was busy with customers. But when I looked up I saw that
smoke appeared to be coming from the car. This would have
been around 6.30pm.
I thought I should call 911, but my English is not very good
and I had no credit left on my phone, so I walked over to
Lance, who has the T-shirt stall next to mine, and told him.
He said we shouldn't [sic] call 911. Immediately he alerted
a police officer near by.
Shahzad was charged with "terrorism and attempting to use a
weapon of mass destruction" [sic].
Does this mean that the US will now launch preemptive
strikes on states capable of rigging vans to explode?
Aliou Niasse, reportedly a Muslim from Senegal, received
little attention in US news media.
So did the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty review
conference being held at the United Nations in New York.
Just in case you're wondering, of course we condemn
violence, and "terrorism". ---

Separation from Oppressors. The traps they set for us (Part I)
by Sis. Ashira Naim [Secretary General Jamaat al-Muslimeen]
(In plain, simple words, BE YOURSELF!)
The first commandment from Allah to His last prophet,
Muhammad (SAW) is Iqraa, (translated: READ!) Why is this so
significant for all humanity, for all time?
It must be significant since it is the opening of
conversation from Allah to the prophet.
Let's examine it in terms of our condition (oppressed,
struggling to be followers)
What we have here pretty much all over the globe is
commercialization 24/7 via visual and audio means designed
to "take you places." These places are dangerous and some
are totally shameful; some are okay for a while; but most of
these places are traps that once you have gotten caught, you
will spend an enormous amount of time struggling, working,
spending money, getting counseling, being bed-ridden,
confined in a hospital or in some cases, confined in a
prison cell until your Lord has mercy upon you and you can
get back to SQUARE ONE again. What a waste of our time, our
lives! When will we get ahead if we keep falling into the
same old traps and another setback by the oppressors.
The oppressors are after one thing "driving you and getting
$$$ for doing so." Once we can truly accept and establish it
as a fact in our minds that these are traps, then, and only
then can we begin to save ourselves from this oppressive
Remember, Allah has told us very clearly that Satan has no
power over you, except that which you give him.

"Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah, and those
who reject Faith fight in the cause of evil: So fight ye
against the friends of Satan: feeble indeed is the cunning
The oppressors are of Satan! They are Satanic in every way
and Allah says don't let them take off your clothes as they
did your ancestors before you in the garden. Pull up your
pants, don't show the world your private parts (boys and
girls, men and women). This is very basic and most
elementary! It is the least you can do.
Holy Quran: 7:27 Al-Araf - The Heights (Translation by

Let's look at some of the traps of the oppressors:
1) Drugs of every kind, on every street, neighborhood, place
of entertainment, schools, etc. , alcohol, gambling
(stealing every penny from your pocket and from your family
while your eyes are wide shut)
2) Movies and commercials constantly playing on television
and at theaters with explicit sex, sexual language, explicit
violence, vulgar language, perverted personalities shown as
Even programs for the very young are sickening with steady
pumping of sex. Remind yourself here that these sex
suggestions are of the non-marital kind, I.e., promotion of
FORNICATION AND ADULTERY, and HOMOSEXUALITY.
3) Promotion of lying and envious behavior that invites you
to the same, via popular magazines, geared at the youth as
well as the adult populations. You become a
"tool" of the oppressor and begin oppressing yourself and
others without even knowing how this has happened to you.
4) Promotion of FEAR AND ANXIETY
Constant forecasts of doom and redundant CNN reports of
Mishaps, murders, etc. We don't need to "eat" this over and
over--not good for
Human consumption over and over.
5) The Busy, "busy body" thing:
If you are not running around acting like you're so busy,
you are likely to either be fired if you're working, or be
looked upon by some other neurotic as a "slow person".
For purposes of this article which could go on and on, we
will stop here to reflect upon one important thing about
these tools of the oppressor: THESE ARE ALL ULTIMATELY IN
YOUR CONTROL IF YOU JUST EXERCISE YOUR GOD-GIVEN WILL TO
TURN THEM "OFF." Allah has made us fully equipped to win
over these obstacles.
Surely, this may seem like a hard "withdrawal" phenomena at
first. But think about it: don't you have dvd players, and
cd players? Why not take a trip to the stores and purchase
educational entertainment and more modest materials for
yourself and family. Put an end to these things that are bit
by bit eating you up and causing illness that you cannot
define. Begin to take care of yourself. Stop trying to be
somebody else. Somebody else is not you. It is only a
delusion. A delusion can never substitute for the real you.
And once that delusion fails you, you are left with an
absolute . Don't be a 2-time loser: You lose in this life
and when you return to the Creator (die as we all must do)
you face real punishment; thus, A TWO-TIME LOSER.
Grasp this and equip yourself with the strength and will to
conquer the oppressors.

The Word "Hadith" in the Qur'an: How the Parvezis try to
Mislead the Innocent
The Role of the Prophet (pbuh) Defined in the Qur'an
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD
Dear Sis. Bint Waleed
Thank you for tackling the efforts of the Parvezi sect to
connect the teachings of the Prophet (pbuh) to the use of
the word "Hadith" in the Qur'an. The Parvezis try to mislead
Muslims in a variety of ways by playing with the words of
The word "HADITH" occurs in the Qur'an 23 times. It has a
variety of meanings depending on the context. In none of
these references is it related to the role of the Prophet
(pbuh) and definitely not to the Companions of the Prophet
(pbuh) narrating the teachings of the Prophet.
It's part of the trickster role of the Parvezis and their
offshoot rejecters of Hadith that they bring a word from the
Qur'an which has no relevance to the issue and try to fool
innocent readers into thinking that the Qur'an is rejecting
the teachings of the Prophet (pbuh) narrated by the Sahaba
(companions of the Prophet).
The use of the word "Hadith" in the Qur'an does show that
narratives outside the Qur'an can have validity. For
instance, the Qur'an says: "Has the Hadith of Musa (Moses)
reached thee?" [20:9]
Or the Qur'an asks: "Has the Hadith reached thee, of the
armies - of Pharoah and Thamud?" [85-17-18]
Thus the Qur'an validates narrations outside itself as
truthful. The earlier Prophets like Moses and Salih, for
instance, are known from valid Hadith narrations passed down
for centuries, and the Qur'an is validating them.
The only time the word "Hadith" refers to the Prophet (pbuh)
in the Qur'an, it is a neutral reference: "When the Prophet
disclosed a matter (hadith) to one of his wives, and she
then divulged it (to another), and Allah made it known to
him, he confirmed part thereof and repudiated a part
These references have nothing to do with the role of the
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Islam. If the Parvezis had been
honest people, they would have never played these word games
in their attempts to distort the message of the Qur'an.
Unfortunately, the people whom the Parvezis address seldom
open the Qur'an and certainly have no understanding of the
Hadith. They do not know that the QUR'AN AND HADITH of the
Prophet (pbuh) are linked to each other.
1. During his life, the Prophet (pbuh) had started
explaining and implementing the Qur'an. His words were taken
as decisive by his Companions.
2. These words of the Prophet (pbuh) were transmitted, both
orally and in writing, by the Sahaba to future generations.
That's what we call Hadith today.
3. Does the Qur'an say anywhere that the Prophet's (pbuh)
teachings are of temporary importance and that the Qur'an
can be interpreted by scholars as they wish regardless of
the words of the Prophet (pbuh)? The answer is a clear NO.
4. Did any of the Companions of the Prophet (pbuh) think
that the Prophet's words and actions were of a temporary
nature, and that the Sahaba could interpret the Qur'an as
they wished after Prophet (pbuh) passed away? Again, the
answer is a clear NO.
The decisive role of the Prophet (pbuh) was enshrined in
Hadith narrations by his Companions.
The Prophet's work which is extra-Qur'anic is validated by
the Qur'an as decisive:
"Similarly We have sent among you a Messenger from among
you, reciting to you our verses, and purifying you, and
teaching you the Book and Wisdom, and teaching you new
The Parvezis try to give the impression that the task of the
Prophet (pbuh) was only to recite the Qur'an. This verse
tells us otherwise.
i. He recites,
iii. Teaches the Book and Wisdom
iv. Teaches new knowledge.
The "purification" or spiritual growth is a world in itself
and is exemplified in the life of the Prophet (pbuh). What
did he teach about the Book? What Wisdom did he provide?
What was the new knowledge?
The Companions (sahaba), who were the original audience of
the Qur'an and the Prophet, have preserved all this for us
in the Hadith

best use of it and spread the word of truth in circumstances

not like any interference in my personal life. My husband
was a wise man. He left me on my own in my decisions. He
never forced me to change my views. He told me that it was
his duty to inform me only and not to enforce. His manner
remained kind and loving until I was convinced myself. He
brought the Quran and Islamic literature at home. He wanted
us to read ourselves and decide for ourselves what the right
path was. After reading it myself I was also convinced. I
want to assure you, I was never pressured on anything by my
husband but I was influenced by his sincerity, softness,

was stopped to send the actual report to the president
because it was not a very positive report. His boss made a
new report by himself in president's praise and approval. My
husband was of the view that if we send the actual report,
then only the officers' complaints could be cleared. When
nothing was accepted, he took the initiative himself and
wrote a sixteen page letter to the president in which he
disclosed the truth and left a message that he was ready to
face the music but that this would a tleast not shame him in
front of his God on the day of judgment.
He was expelled from the air force and went to Afghanistan
for jihad. His jihad did not stop even after the Afghan
Russia war was over as he busied himself for the prevalence
of islamic rule in Pakistan.
After years of struggle he did not accept defeat because his
only mission was and had been to fight in the way of God.
Many governments changed until it was the reign of the
dictator Perviaz Musharraf. The Pakistani people experienced
utter cruelty. The government started selling the Pakistani
people to the foreign authorities. My husband could not
stand the misery of the oppressed families. He organized the
Defense of Human rights, and started working for these
people along with the help of his most beloved friend, Abdul
Rashid Ghazi, the chief coordinator and the chairman of the
firm respectively. He was always supported by his family
members including his mother who even at the age of 79 went
to protest for the rights of the missing people. He was
arrested because of his mission on peace on the incident of
lal masjid. Many other hurdles were set in his way but
nothing would stop him to accomplish his noble cause.
This so called war against terror took finally Pakistan to
the brink of breaking up. On the other hand the foreigners
who had started this war started to leave its worst affects
on human kind generally and the muslims of this area
specifically. In this time of crises my husband took the
initiative of peace talks until he gave his life for this
He never kept anything only to himself but involved all his
family in his mission. He didn't give importance to this
life. He was always worried about the Hereafter.
