Hamid Mir: Top Pakistani journalist allegedly involved in instigating the murder of Khalid Khawaja.

A tape has surfaced in Pakistan on which one can hear Hamid Mir, a top Pakistani journalist, instigating a group which seems to be a rogue off shoot of the Taliban or a group of gangsters, to treat Khalid Khawaja as a spy. The tape has been identified by several professional sources as containing the voice of Hamid Mir. It is full of extreme abuse, patent lies and inciteful distortions about Khalid Khawaja. The great human rights activist was murdered after this taped conversation . Hamid Mir also carried out abusive attacks on Sis. Shamama, Khalid Khawaja's wife, accusing her of a conspiracy to undermine the Red Mosque-Jamia Hafsa seminary [which was attacked by General Musharraf].

This is what is known as a disinformation campaign. It resulted in the murder of an Islamic hero Khalid Khawaja. The Taliban leadership made a major attempt to save Khalid Khawaja from the kidnapers but the taped conversation indicates that he was condemned by the words of Hamid Mir.

Hamid Mir is claiming that the voice on the tape is not his. The publications he works for have constituted a committee to investigate Hamid Mir but he has not been arrested. Sis. Shamama has told New Trend that some of the information on the tape was known only to her and Hamid Mir.

The tape is extensive and packed with abuse. However, New Trend will still give Hamid Mir a right of reply to 300 words. [Readers interested in the tape can receive it from New Trend by email. It is in the Urdu language.]

Our observers say that the main force which would be interested in eliminating Khawaja was imperialism-zionism, owing to his defense of 5 US Muslims handed over by CAIR, his attempts to stop US drone attacks, and his stoppage of the handing over of "soft" Taliban leaders to the US.

From Imam Badi Ali [Jamaat al-Muslimeen National Shoora] Greensboro, North Carolina

Spotlight #1 on Tariq Ramadan, darling of US Imperialism and Zionism: America's universities, media, "think tanks," Muslim groups linked to the regime are opening their doors to Tariq Ramadan, a Muslim Brotherhood-linked spokesman. This welcome for him is coming at a time when the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, himself is under attack by the West, sometimes through Danish and Norwegian cartoons and sometimes through Facebook and veiled ridicule and trivialization on Zionist youtube shows. Would any Muslim worth the name remain silent when the Messenger of Allah, pbuh, is being abused and insulted? Ramadan's silence on crucial issues speaks louder than his words.

Spotlight #2 on Tariq Ramadan: Is he part of global Islam in any way? The Muslim Brotherhood is presenting him as if his Islam is genuine. The fact is that NO ISLAMIC SCHOLAR in the Muslim world has endorsed Tariq Ramadan. He is definitely not genuine and the only place he belongs to is "made-in-America" Islam.

Spotlight #3 on Tariq Ramadan: Look at the timing of his visit. All kinds of weird diversions are underway to "re-write" and "re-do" Islam from the people in power. Attacks on Islamic dress are common. Bombing of Iraq, Somalia, Pakistan, Afghanistan continues but is not publicized. Muslim groups are urged to condemn "terrorism" while fake "fiqh committees" endorse support for America. Claims are made that honest [real] Muslims are dangerous for America. Fears and rumors are circulated. All religion is attacked, particularly the teachings of Jesus, pbuh. At this point Mr. Ramadan is brought in and given a big welcome. A Muslim who is welcome among the enemies of Islam! Think about it.

Unite Against Zionism: Jamaat al-Muslimeen Shoora Theme
Zionists Attack Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, thru Facebook.
Pakistani Counterattack Led by Jamaate Islami.

by Kaukab Siddique

On May 19, 2010 Pakistani regime under pressure from Islamic forces blocked Facebook. On May 20 it also blocked youtube and flicker photos.
Pakistani people demonstrated against Facebook in all the major cities after a blistering attack on Face book by Syed Munawar Hasan, ameer of Jamaate Islami. On May 20 the demonstrations continued. [See photo below of mass demonstration in Karachi by Islamic women.]
Syed Munawar Hasan, ameer of Jamaate Islami, said that Islam respects all religions. By contrast, western powers are constantly attacking Islam. From cartoons in Denmark and Norway, they have moved to the use of the Facebook to insult the Messenger of Allah, pbuh. The West is carrying out cultural terrorism against Islam and Jewish groups are behind this sacrilegous attack, Hasan said.
Asadullah Bhutto, leader of Jamaate Islami in Sind, said that Pakistanis are ready to lay down their lives for the honor of the Prophet, pbuh. However sinful or secularized a Muslim might be, no Muslim will accept ridicule of the messenger of Allah, pbuh, Bhutto added.

New Trend observers say, Facebook did not expect such a powerful Islamic response when some Zionist extremists urged facebook participants to draw cartoons of Prophet Muhammad, pbuh. The hope of the Zionists was that if large numbers of people insult the Prophet, pbuh, the Islamic response will be muted and the best of men Muhammad Mustafa, pbuh, will be trivialized just as the Zionists have trivialized Jesus, pbuh, in particular and religion in general.

May 20:Photo below: Mass rally in Karachi by Islamic women against Facebook's attempt to trivialize and insult Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be on him. Urdu banner on right front says in poetry: "Unite to sacrifice yourself for the honor of the Prophet, pbuh, like the moth which rushes into the flame of its love."

Islamic Women Respond to Zionism: Unite Against Zionism: Jamaat al-Muslimeen Shoora
Deliberate Attempts on TV to Corrupt America's Children
by Sis. 'Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen New York City.]

Part I of Sis. 'Ashirah's article "Separation from Oppressors. The traps they set for us" was so accurate. I am very disturbed by the sexually confusing messages that have been steadily creeping into children's programs. My youngest brother and his wife do not allow their daughter to watch television. She is a little less than two years old.

They play educational games with her and take her on nature hikes. The television is referred to as a "boob tube" for a reason. I completely support Sis. 'Ashirah's suggestion of buying or renting educational CD's or DVD's.

My definition of capitalism is the process of making money to someone else's detriment. Religion and moral behavior is constantly being ridiculed. You have teen shows, such as Degrassi High, where teenagers lament the fact that they are virgins while other teens are being congratulated for coming out of the closet.

I have heard rumors, for years, about satanism in Hollywood. Comedian Paul Mooney, confirmed it a few weeks ago on a local cable TV show. He stated that many people in Hollywood, black and white, worship the devil. He recounted an incident at an awards ceremony where, actor Jack Black said, "let's take a moment to applaud the devil" and everyone applauded. Jack Black is a secular Jew.

Beware of programming that pokes fun at Christians. The show's creator may be a satanist like the Simpson's Matt Groening.

But just as Sis. 'Ashirah stated in her piece, the devil does not have ANY power over us. The devil only has the power we give him

Letter from Gulshan Aulani who embraced Islam after seeing Agha Khan's "religion" from the inside.
An Islamic Woman who Knows the Agha Khani [Ismaili] Culture from the Inside, Rebuts Attacks on Burqa & Niqab

[An Agha Khani named Hasni Essa has been distributing Zionist propaganda against Islam on the Internet.]

Hasni Essa:

What right do you have to talk about Islam and Quran? You are ordered not to follow the Quran by your Imam
Agakhan. Are you forgetting that?

The first Agakhan Sultan Shah made fatwa against Islam, Quran, Muslims and the Burqa, and forgave
all of the Islam and gave us permission to practice our ancestral religion of Hinduism.
Are you forgetting that?
By the way, it is in the Quran in regards to Niqab: "Prophet's Wives and Believing women...".
Although I don't wear Niqab but who the hell are we to oppose to Burqa or Niqab and start the dictatorship for what Muslim women should
and should not wear.
Are they hurting anybody by their Divine, high moral attire? Obviously not.
Are you forgetting our mothers and grandmothers used to wear Saree and Pachedi like Burqa?

If Afghanis have their moral values, let them keep it. They were doing fine even without female education
until the evils took over who loves to expose their women for their own lust and pleasure.

The Afghani Burqa style is since the time of Prophet Isaac (AS) and majority of the Afghani Pashtuns and other tribes are the Bani Israel (Children of Prophet Israel/Jacob (AS), and still follow the law of Judaism. (Ref. TV documentary).

If at all we should talk about the women's dressing up then it should only be against the nakedness of women
that is ruining the Society and leading to the Black hole.

Yes, Islam is for pluralism but not for the indecent, evil lifestyle, which is actually the so-called Reformist,
progressive and moderates are promoting, but have no idea what the reform means.
The true reform of the Society was completed by Messenger Muhammad (SAS), from the Paganism
and inhumane system to the best of the equality, humanity, Justice, patience, caring, respect of
female child, and the rights of women and children.

No one has a right to fight against the Furqan and the criteria of the Blueprint of ethics and moral values given by Allah.

You stick to your religion and let us worry about ours.

Eyewitness Account: Israeli Military Officer Rebutted in Colorado

Governments Use Military Personnel to Justify Killing
Charles E. Carlson May 16, 2010

An event at Denver University on May 11, 2010---

I was fortunate to attend a speech Tuesday by a senior military officer of the Israeli Defense Force, Col. Bentzion Gruber, speaking at Denver University on May 11, about the "morality and restraint" of the IDF in dealing with their "terrorist" neighbors... fortunate because this is the first time I have seen an Israeli propagandist lambasted for lying to his audience. Col. Gruber looked like he had been run over by his own bulldozers when a few knowledgeable members of the audience refused to sit quietly and have their intelligence insulted.
The meeting was sponsored by the Institute for Study of Israel in Middle East and the DU chapter of Hillel, a Jewish fraternity on campus. Gruber's lecture was called, "The Most Rigorous Military Code of Ethics in the World." Gruber is a Deputy Commander of the Reserve Division that served in Operation Cast Lead, the Christmas 2008 one month massacre in Gaza, which has, in fact, been followed by a blockade. He is now a reserve officer, but he also served during the Second Intifada (1998-02) during which Israeli forces killed 4789 Palestinians.
Gruber was interrupted constantly by individuals one-by- one who constantly challenged his facts. The resistance resulted from the efforts of eight to ten people who called a Mother's day strategy meeting in a Denver park. They know the only way to refute Gruber was not to allow one lie to pass unchallenged. It worked.
Gruber became unnerved and struggled unsuccessfully to finish his speech, limping through his allotted time with the aid of police, who ushered out one by one those who spoke clearly from the floor. Later Gruber was to be roundly challenged by his general audience, including a professor and some of the students, during a Q & A period. Most attacked Gruber's facts and his country's credibility.
Angered, the flustered Colonel stated, "Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims," causing shouts from the stunned audience to bring the meeting to a temporary halt. Gruber was forced to apologize, but he stuck to his guns in referring to every Palestinian who resists Israel as a "terrorist."

Gruber's lecture made the same points that are made in every Israeli propaganda speech: Israel is the victim, not the aggressor. For evidence, the Colonel cited suicide bombers, rockets and missiles, and the evil Hamas hiding behind civilians. He used an IDF propaganda film to attempt to show how careful Israel is to avoid killing civilians. The film contained obviously misleading statements about the Gazans and Hamas, including alleging Gazans used over three thousand "rockets" and "mortars" against Israelis.
His challengers cited the now famous Goldstone Report, which states otherwise. He was told the Gazans have no missiles, their rockets are the homemade kind that don't explode, and only four Israelis were killed by rocket fire in all the history of it. Mortar rounds are so scarce they are rarely used on rural Israel that surrounds Gaza, and are saved to fight off invasions.
The IDF also showed footage of a human bomber attacking a bus that he insisted was carrying women and children. But the movie was clearly faked, with dubbed in gunfire much too loud for the long range and grainy film. A questionable close-up of the grinning "suicide bomber" was offered to prove how happy Palestinian terrorists are just before they blow themselves up. Gruber was asked why he did not tell the audience that Palestinian's homemade rockets do not explode and that Israeli buses carry on-duty military and are therefore military targets. The audience of students did not buy the film once some of Gruber's misstatements were exposed.
Some challenged Gruber and the IDF film on its claims of humanitarian restraint in battle by citing the Goldstone Report, which documented the massacre 16 months ago. The Colonel's response was that Goldstone was "full of lies," and Israel "never used white phosphorus bombs." He ended his much contested speech by reciting a sad but irrelevant story of his family being "holocaust" survivors sixty years ago and one of his family members being raped by a German, springing from this to the defense of Israel with no explanation as to what this had to do with the IDF's slaughter of the Gazans. The final questioner asked why he did this, and Gruber did not say how the Palestinians were involved in Germany's acts sixty years ago.
We in the United States are increasingly subjected to the influence of military personal on our payroll, used by politicians to tell us why this war or that war is needed. A generation ago it was a violation of the military code. General Douglas Mac Arthur, American five-star hero of World War II, was fired and ousted from the military for making statements about the Korean War.
Today it is commonplace for retired and even active duty officers to give interviews and public statements about the progress of the war, apparently deemed necessary by our political leaders to support the war effort. A recent example is found in a story by retired General Paul Vallaly whose claims go beyond fantasy.
Vallaly is listed in Wikipedia as a senior military analyst for Fox News. He claims tiny Lebanon has "50-60,000 missiles and rockets" hidden in houses and orchards aimed at Israel, that Iran already has nuclear bombs and is getting ready to mount them on "Scud" missiles from Russia, and that surrounding Islamic countries are planning a chemical attack on Israel. This war propagandist general repeatedly suggests he has privileged information. His final words: "We cannot allow Israel to stand alone in this." Endnote 1.
Israel, not unlike the USA, uses their military, like Colonel Gruber, to sell the false idea that it is the victim, and is a humane, surgically clean eliminator of "terrorists". The response at Denver University was an encouraging surprise and another sign of a "turning" in our time that is finally beginning to happen in the minds of those who think about what they are being told, especially students.

Is It True That Hadith Was Not Written in the time of the Prophet, pbuh?
Were Qur'an and Hadith transmitted by same people or different ones?

Question from Sis. N. in Detroit [From a long letter]:

I am originally from Iran, moving to real Islam, Qur'an and Hadith. I read a good book by Fazlur Rahman (Chicago University) but it confused me on some points. He writes, Hadith was written in third century after the Prophet. New Trend's web site says follow Qur'an and Hadith. I am confused please explain why Hadith was not written in time of the Prophet ?

ANSWER by Kaukab Siddique:

Dr. Fazlur Rahman was influenced by Christian missionaries and Jewish orientalists. He tried to confuse the Muslims of Pakistan, with the support of the military government, but was defeated and fled to America where he was immediately given a senior position at Chicago University to teach Islam.

Both the Qur'an and the Hadith were written down in the time of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The Qur'an is the word of Allah revealed to Muhammad (peace be on him). The Hadith is the commentary, explanation, implementation of the Qur'an by Muhammad (pbuh). Both are interlinked and essential to each other. No authentic Islamic scholar has ever tried to say that Hadith is not necessary or was written later.

The people who wrote down the Qur'an, on bits and pieces of materials, were the SAHABA or companions of the Prophet (pbuh). Paper and printing were not available at that time. So, people could not go around with printed and bound copies of the Qur'an. Even the collation and putting together of the Qur'an was done by the SAHABA so that the Qur'an became a BOOK between two covers after the Prophet (pbuh) passed away. This great work was done under the supervision of Abu Bakr, Umar, Osman and Ali (may Allah be pleased with them all) who were the first four rightly guided Caliphs of Islam.

The same SAHABA also wrote and transmitted the Hadith and made sure that nothing was falsely attributed to the Prophet (pbuh).

The QUR'AN was also MEMORIZED by the Sahaba. In fact few of them had it in writing but many of them knew it from memory. The cross checking of memory with writing was carried out to make sure that the Qur'an as revealed to the Prophet, pbuh, was transmitted to future generations.

The HADITH was also memorized by the SAHABA and transmitted to future generations. Any scholar of Hadith had to MEMORIZE the HADITH from the written collections of the Sahaba and then RECITE IT FROM MEMORY to his/her teacher. Thus an accurate record of the Prophet's, pbuh, life and teachings was enshrined in the scholarship of the Muslim world.

In the era after the SAHABA various kinds of sects arose which tried to disseminate their own versions of the Qur'an. Some of them claimed that Hazrat Ali (r.a.) had received suras of the Qur'an from the Prophet, pbuh, which no one else had. The scholars of the line of Ali (r.a.) and Fatima (r.a.), such as Imam Jafar and Imam Baqir, were able to repudiate these claims because they had the Qur'an both by memory and in writing.

Similarly attempts were made to invent "Hadith." This was a very serious effort by Kings and emperors who wanted religion to justify their tyranny and to creatre a "tame Islam." The problem was aggravated by the fact that various SAHABA had migrated to various cities, and after they passed away, various people could claim that they had heard Hadith from them.

It was in that context that great scholars like Imam Bukhari stepped forward to ENSURE that fabrications did not enter the corpus of Hadith. I think that these scholars were a bit too strict and as a result they sometimes designated as "weak" even those Hadith which were authentic but which would not pass the test of extremely severe scrutiny.

Imam Bukhari and other imams are the ones Dr. Fazlur Rahman was abusing when he claimed that Hadith was written in the third century after the Prophet. Fazlur Rahman really was quite ignorant of Hadith and hence recklessly fell into the trap set for him by Christian missionaries and Jewish orientalists.

WAS HADITH WRITTEN in the TIME OF THE PROPHET (pbuh)? Yes, the evidence is overwhelming. Here is one sample from a prominent companion of the Prophet, pbuh, Abdullah ibn Umru ibn al-Aas. It is authenticated by two distinct and separate compilers of Hadith, Abu Dawud in his Sunan (chapter kitabut al-ilm) and Darimi in his Musnad (chapter on Rukhs fi kitabut al-ilm):

"Whatever I heard from the messenger of Allah, peace be on him, I would write it down so as to be able to memorize it. Then some in the Quraish (tribe) said to me: You write down whatever you hear though the messenger of Allah is a human being and speaks both in anger and in joy. On hearing that I stopped writing and then I mentioned this to the messenger of Allah. He pointed with his finger to his mouth and said: Write on! By Him in whose Hand is my being, no word comes out of this mouth but the Truth."

Abdullah ibn Umru (r.a.) collected the Hadith he had written in the presence of the Prophet (pbuh) in a book titled Al-Sadiqa. Abdullah said: "There are two things I love in life: Al-Sadiqa and al-Wahat." He explained: "Al-Sadiqa is that manuscript which I heard and wrote from the messenger of Allah and Wahat is that land which (my father) Umru ibn al-Aas donated to the cause of Allah and which I take care of." [Darimi's Sunan.]

The compendium Tahzeeb al-Tahzeeb tells us that on the death of Abdullah, r.a, the manuscript of Al-Sadiqa was secured by his grandson Shuaib bin Muhammad and then transmitted to the next generation by his son also named Umru. THE HADITH WRITTEN BY Abdullah, r.a., DIRECTLY FROM THE PROPHET, pbuh, AND AT HIS COMMAND, are to be found in the collections of Hadith which we have under this chain of narration:

"From Umru son of Shuaib from his father from his grandfather." As Hadith is a very strict discipline, some classical scholars wanted to classify the collection as Mursal because they thought the grandson should have SAT DOWN IN FRONT OF THE GRANDFATHER AND RECITED THE WHOLE COLLECTION TO HIM FROM MEMORY! However, some of the greatest scholars of Hadith, like Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, accept the authenticity of Al-Sadiqa.

What makes Al-Sadiqa's authenticity irrefutable is that it was also transmitted by OTHER STUDENTS of Abdullah (r.a.) who had nothing to do with his grandson.

So, don't let anyone tell you that Hadith was not written in the time of the Prophet, pbuh.

FINALLY, spend a couple of months in trying to understand this verse of the Qur'an. It will help you to understand why the Hadith is essential and ALWAYS goes with the Qur'an:
"The Prophet is closer to the believers than their own selves, and his wives are their mothers. [33:6]

Azzam in Cairo to discuss issue of Islamic Jihad prisoners in Egypt's jails
[ 20/05/2010 - 11:05 AM ]

GAZA, (PIC)-- Senior Islamic Jihad leader Nafid Azzam traveled on Wednesday to Cairo to discuss the file of his Movement's detainees in Egyptian jails, who were arrested upon their return to the Gaza Strip.

Spokesman for the Movement Da'wood Shihab said that Azzam went to Egypt after he received an official invitation to visit Cairo to discuss the file of Islamic Jihad prisoners there, denying any kind of mediation in this regard between his Movement and Egypt.

The spokesman noted that the number of Islamic Jihad prisoners in Egyptian jails is about 30 Palestinians, affirming that all of them used legal ways and official documents during their travel from and to Egypt.

In a related context, an Egyptian state security officer reported, on condition of anonymity, that a Palestinian citizen from Gaza called Ayman Nofal, imprisoned for years, is living in harsh incarceration conditions and exposed to severe torture in Egyptian jails.

The officer said he saw Nofal twice being taken to the interrogation room with his hands and feet shackled, adding that the Palestinian prisoner was locked up alone for more than one year and a half inside Abu Zaabal prison in Cairo in a two square meter solitary cell, having no source of ventilation or lighting, except a metal bucket used as a toilet.

He revealed further that in the last six months, a prisoner affiliated with Hamas joined Nofal in his new two square meter cell inside Al-Marj prison in Cairo and both of them sleep alternately because of the narrow area of the cell.

"When I saw him, once, he was being carried by soldiers in the corridor of the investigation section and unable to walk alone because of the severe torture he was subjected to during the interrogation. His body was frail, his hair and beard were unshaven for months and he was wearing an unbearably smelly clothes to the extent that the two soldiers carrying him could not put up with the smell," the officer confirmed.

The officer noted that the prison administrations in Egypt deny the presence of Palestinian detainees in their cells and transfer them to special places underground whenever human rights activists visit the jails.

He also disclosed that the prison administrations of Al-Marj, Burj Al-Arab and Abu Zaabal as well as the state security in Cairo received top official orders to tighten punitive measures against Palestinian prisoners and do everything that could humiliate them, especially those affiliated with Hamas, to punish them for their Movement's refusal to sign Egypt's reconciliation paper.
