A very important article from Br. Shamim Siddiqui [Long
Island, New York] is published below. It is essential
reading for those who want to work for peaceful Islamic
movement in America.

Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman, Ahmed Abdel Sattar & Lynne Stewart,
victims of US-Mubarak Collusion, should be freed.
I urge President Obama to release Islamic prisoners being
held in US prisoners, especially prisoners held in collusion
with the Egyptian tyrant Hosni Mubarak. Obama claims that he
is on the side of the Egyptian people, which is quite a
surprise after the consistent help the White House has
extended to Mubarak.
Release Shaikh Omar Abdel Rahman, Ahmed Abdel Sattar
Lynne Stewart. They have committed no crime except
non-violent opposition to the regime of Hosni Mubarak. Their
release will show, at least in part, that Obama is sincere
in the impression being created by his government that he
does not support Mubarak and his terror regime.

Why Does History Produce Insensitive Brutes like Hosni
Mubarak? Connecting the past with the present.
"A combination of forces and circumstances is responsible
for the present day observed or perceived chaos and
backwardness in Africa and the so-called Middle East.
Principal among them are the system of world-wide European
centered education, established over the past 500 or more
years following the fall of Granada and the coming of
Columbus to the New World, and the rise of Neo-Darwinism
claiming a hereditary and genetic basis for the occurrence
of high ability in human beings during the latter part of
the 19th century.
Now aided by powerful media, this world-wide system of
European centered education, which supports and sustains
western and Zionist exploitation of the oppressed
populations and nations of the earth, was born of force,
massive killings of human beings, slavery, colonization,
rape, robbery, distortion of history and outright
fabrications, and operates in all areas of people activity:
economics, education, entertainment, labor, law, politics,
religion, sex and war."

Outreach # 1: After Juma', Jamaat al-Muslimeen Message given
to 125 Muslims in Laurel, Maryland
On February 4, Jamaat al-Muslimeen's literature was given to
125 people at a mosque in Laurel, Maryland. This town is
located 40 miles south of Baltimore. The items distributed
included Imam Badi Ali's SPOTLIGHT on EGYPT and Dr. Kaukab
Siddique's khutba on Egypt and Tunisia and the miraculous
rise of Islam from the arid soil of secularism. The third
item was a report on the Jewish-Israeli attack on a Black
youth in Baltimore. The 4th summarized a historic rally in
Lahore, Pakistan against attacks on the Prophet, pbuh with a
message from Pakistani leader Munawar Hasan. These 4 items
were given to 50 people.
Another 75 Muslims were given a two page letter from Sis.
Karen calling for the boycott of businesses which support
Israel. These businesses include Calvin Klein, Gap,
Starbucks, Nestle, Estee Lauder and Coca Cola.
A mosque official told the activists to stop the
distribution. By that time it had been done. The government
seems to be pressuring mosques not to let Jamaat literature
Outreach #2. The Voice of US Muslims Khutba on Egypt's
Revolution: Analysis, Significance and Future
On February 4, Imam Badi Ali, National Islamic Shoora leader
[Jamaat al-Muslimeen, North Carolina], gave a khutba on
Egypt which is said to be the best in America although USA
has more than a thousand mosques. The mosque where he spoke,
located in Greensboro, North Carolina, attracted several
hundred Muslims from various Arabic speaking countries,
Texts highlighted in the khutba: "...Take warning then, o
you with eyes [to see] ..." [The Qur'an 59:2]
"Allah punishes the hypocrites, men and women, those who
associate others with Allah, be they men or women, and Allah
turns in Mercy to the believers, men and women, for Allah is
oft-forgiving, Most Merciful." [33:73]
"...Pharoah and his hosts followed them in insolence and
enmity, At length when overwhelmed with the flood, and
drowning, Pharoah said: 'I believe that there is no god
except Him ..." [10:90]
" [Satan fails against] ...those who believe, work
righteousness, engage much in the remembrance of Allah, and
defend themselves after they are unjustly attacked. And soon
will the unjust know what vicissitudes their affairs will
How thy Lord dealt with 'Ad, Thamud "And with Paroah, Lord
of Stakes . These transgressed beyond bounds in the lands."
"Incline not towards the oppressors, or the Fire will seize
you , and you have no protectors other than Allah, nor
shall you be helped." [11:113]
Main points of the khutba:
If the dictators take away the people's deen [religion] and
dunya [worldly goods], then the masses rise up.
In Pakistan, they have taken away the dunya but not the
deen, so there is no uprising.
People in Tunisia saw that the two were connected. The
people rose up and the dictator for the first time
RECOGNIZED them as people. The Tunisian dictator Ben Ali
said: "I understand now." Mubarak is saying: 'I understand
now." After 30 years!
When the fear goes out of people's minds, then they rise up.
Fear is an internal thing. It exists because we lack fear of
The dictator's last minute acceptance is not going to
matter. Notice the words of the Pharoah just before Allah
Those who are trying to get the dictator an easy exit from
Egypt are the same ones who kept him in power for 30 years.
If we follow the Laws of Allah, it becomes easy to drive
dictators away. Depression sets in when people do not have
Allah's Guidance and they start feeling that nothing can be
Three decades of oppression and exploitation have turned
Egypt into a land of misery with wealth in the hands of the
few and 45% under the poverty line of $1 a day.
What a horrible crime it is that Mubarak has $70 billion
while millions of people live on $1 day!
Egypt has gone through all the variations of oppression. We
had oppression of the nation by the western powers, the
oppression of the people by the rulers and the oppression of
the people by segments of the people themselves.
Cooperation with oppressors is strictly forbidden in Islam.
There should be no respect for religious scholars who
cooperate with rulers. As Hasan Basri said: A scholar who is
at the door of a ruler is a thief. Scholars who serve rulers
are the worst part of humanity.
Dictatorship, however severe, is a passing phase. Look at
the Soviet Union. It used to publish millions of books and
distribute them all over the world. Now, no one will take
them even for free. Only the Qur'an and Hadith have
The proof of success in the Egyptian revolution will be that
the power structure placed by the western powers and Israel
wil be removed. Omar Suleyman has been made Vice President.
He was the direct link with Israel and was in charge of
torture and abuse of humanity.

They started Right Away. Egyptian Upper Class getting Gold
out: Shipment Caught
After a week ago we learned that the central bank of Tunisia
had parted with 23% of its gold stash courtesy of now
deposed president who fled the country with a 1.5 ton
shipment of gold, it appears that Egypt is preparing for a
comparable spike in revolutionary activity. Only unlike the
now former Tunisian president whose gold sequestering
actions were retroactive and thus, quite lucky to succeed,
Egypt has taken proactive measures. According to Egypt News,
the country's airport has intercepted 59 shipments of gold
directed for the Netherlands "worth tens of millions." The
gold, as well as an indeterminate amount of foreign
currencies, was hidden in pillow cases: uh, cotton may not
show up on X-Rays, but gold sure does. We eagerly await to
learn how big the decline in the country's official holdings
75.6 tonnes of gold will be after this most recent episode
confirming that gold is precisely money.
Top Islamic Leader Hails Egyptian Masses: Era of US-Israeli
Agents Ending. When will there be justice for Kashmir?
LAHORE, Feb. 3: The Jamaat e Islami chief, Syed Munawar
Hasan, has saluted the Egyptian people on their epoch-making
struggle and counseled the Muslim rulers to learn a lesson
from the developments in Tunisia and Egypt. In a statement
here on Thursday, he said that throughout the Muslim world,
where ever the US colonialism had tightened its hold and
thrust anti-people rulers, there was a wind of change and
the rulers were falling one by one and the US influence in
the Muslim world and its hold on their rich resources was
weakening. He said that the Egyptians had given a verdict
against a tyrant and corrupt ruler by coming on the streets
in millions. The fact that the entire Egyptian nation had
come on roads and was continuing its movement despite
hundreds of the deaths indicated that Hosni Mubarak had been
continuing his rule only due to the US and Israeli backing.
The JI chief further said that the historic movement of the
Egyptian people was also a message to Washington and Tel
Aviv that the age of their agents was over. This is also a
message for the Muslim rulers that the US support could not
keep them in power for ever and the US always abandoned its
friends in difficult times and Washington had now shut its
eyes from Hosni Mubarak as soon there was a change. The
rulers should realize that only the true obedience of Allah,
protection of the national interests and true representation
of the public sentiments is the only way to salvation, he
added. Syed Munawar Hasan also called upon the Pakistani
rulers to announce support for the Egyptian people instead
of the corrupt and bloodthirsty ruler. In this respect, he
commended the Turkish Prime Minister's announcement of
solidarity with the Egyptian people at this juncture and
said that the Pakistani rulers could win the Muslim Ummah's
heart by emulating Turkey's example.
The JI chief strongly condemned the killings in Egypt on the
9th day of the mass movement following the attacks of plain
clothed police and army men. He said this was only the
government's last attempt to save its drowning ship. He said
at a time when the entire Egypt had risen against Hosni
Mubarak, this was a plot to push the country into a civil
war. However, he was confident that the Egyptian people
would foil this conspiracy through their unity and peaceful
Meanwhile, in a letter to the Muslim rulers, the JI chief
has requested for convening a special OIC meeting to discuss
the current situation in Jammu and Kashmir. Syed Munawar
Hasan stressed that the Islamic Conference should adopt a
unanimous resolution calling upon India for troops pull out
from the disputed Jammu and Kashmir. He said that in case
New Delhi did not comply, the Muslim world should completely
boycott Indian products. The JI chief also called upon the
UN to prevail upon India for implementation of the UN
resolution on Kashmir.

A young man beaten and kidnapped by soldiers in Hadidiya
Today, 0/02/2011, Ghazi Bsharat, 19, was grazing his animals
in Hadidiya area when he was beaten and arrested by Israeli
soldiers. Ghazi was walking around with his animals, 700m
from his home when his family saw him beaten by soldiers.
Then he disappeared for two hours. His family didn't know
where he was, if he was injured, lying down alone somewhere
or if he was arrested, as his phone was closed.
Finally Ghazi came back home after hours of detention in the
occupation jails. This [kind] of aggression on Al Hadidiya
communities happen often. Al Hadidya is located in the
Northern Jordan Valley and is surrounded by three military
camps and two settlements, Ro'i and Beqarot.

THE MOST PERFECT MODEL OF DA"EE ILALLAH
[Shamim A Siddiqi, NY]
INTRODUCTION - THE SEARCH IN HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE
Since the beginning of human race, Allah (SWT) in his
infinite mercy has been sending Messengers after Messengers
in a continuous chain for the guidance of mankind as how to
act, live and behave on earth as His vicegerent. Each
Messenger has the same mission for his people as under:
be obedient to your Creator and Sustainer in every walk of
be Trusties not masters - what He has created and
harnessed within you and around you all are a trust [Amanah]
in your hands for you to satisfy your inherent needs and
urges as their custodians not master;
feel always accountable to Him - while using these
bounties and favors of God on earth, expecting to be
rewarded with eternal pleasure of Jannah (Paradise) for good
deeds or to be punished with His eternal displeasure and
thrown in the Hellfire for evil/bad deeds and
follow always the life-pattern of the Messenger of the
time - till you breath your last.
This is the essence of Allah's Deen and all the messengers
of Allah from Adam to Muhammad [pbut] conveyed the same
message to the people of their time and their followers
followed it after their departure from this world till the
next Messenger came to earth for the guidance of
The mission entrusted to each of them was to establish His
Deen and not to deviate from it. It is categorically
emphasized in Verse # 13 of Surah # 42, Al-Shura: "Un
Aqimuddeen wa la Tatafarraqu Fihey" -"Establish the Deen and
be not divided therein."
All the Messengers of Allah tried their best to accomplish
their mission of life. They all made extraordinary effort in
communicating and explaining the mission and its
complexities and Hikmah and purified the character of the
people who joined their mission. However, some succeeded
partially while some others couldn't due to stiff opposition
of the vested interests of the time and only a few could
succeed in establishing the Deen of Allah on earth as a
political entity of their time. Amongst the successful ones
are Prophet Dawood and Prophet Solomon [May Allah be pleased
with them] who established Torah, the Divine Guidance of
their time but unfortunately the Jewish people are treating
them as Kings.
Only Prophet Muhammad (S), the last and the final Messenger
of this series established the Deen of Allah in the Arabian
Peninsula in its entirety during his life time and paved the
way for its establishment in the rest of the then known
world with in the next 80 years of his (S) departure from
this world. His (S) model is perfect in all respects and we
should study it in detail as how he (S) did it and delivered
Justice, peace and security to Human abode. He (S) sets a
perfect model for us to follow for our time in order to
quench our natural thirst for getting justice, peace and
solution of our centuries old burning problems. Equally, his
(S) is the only model that is available to us in its
minutest detail in the pages of history whereas the life
pattern of other Prophets of Allah is lying somewhat in
obscurity or in brief only.
THE PERFECT MODEL OF RASULULLAH (S):
About five hundred years after the departure of Jesus (AS),
according to his prophecy, Prophet Muhammad Ibne Abdullah
appeared in Makkah in Quraish in 570 AC. It was the time
when humanity has no Guidance and all the previous Books of
Guidance stood either lost or mutilated by their followers.
Humanity was grappling in gloom and darkness. There were no
human rights, no court of Justice. It was a tribal society
and bloodshed with injustices was prevailing all around.
Europe was grappling in dark ages and people were treated
like serfdoms while Muhammad Ibne Abdullah was thinking in
the Cave of Hear how to get the situation corrected and
deliver justice to mankind.
In the year 610 AC, arch angel Gabriel came from the Lord of
this cosmos and addressed Muhammad (S): "Read and read in
the name of thy Sustainer.....and revealed the first Wahi
covering the first five Verse of Surah Al-A'ala. Thus, Allah
appointed Muhammad Ibne Abdullah as His last and final
Messenger as no Prophet came after him nor will ever come.
After the gap of a few months, the second Wahi came and
addressed Rasulullah (S):
"O thou enveloped in thy cloak; Arise and Warn! And glorify
Thy Lord". Thy raiment purify. Pollution shun. Never ever
feel contented that enough has been done. And have patience
for the sake of thy Lord [Al- Muddathir" Verses # 1 to 7]
It was a clear command from his (S) Lord to get up and
struggle hard for glorifying and establishing His authority
with all cares, concerns and precautions that this mission
demands. To fulfill this mission, Rasulullah (S) needed
three things - his (S) life long pursuits confirm it:
Now let us see how it was all managed and arranged by Allah
(SWT) and the individual efforts of Rasulullah (S) and his
(S) beloved companions [his team mates]
The Guidance - the blue print as what to do and how to do
to get His authority and Deen established on self, family
and in the human society;
Who will do this job? - The requisite Team of dedicated
and committed workers to get the Deen of Allah established
on this earth
The Land - where to establish the Deen.
* Guidance - the Blue Print: It came directly from Allah
(SWT) in bits and pieces as and when needed and was
completed in 23 years to serve the different needs and
situation that Rasulullah (S) faced through out this period
while struggling hard in a continuous process towards the
Iqamah of His Deen.
* Building the Team of his (S) committed worker: This job was
undertaken by Rasulullah (S) himself. Before his (S)
appointment as the Messenger of Allah he had a lot of
concern for the state of his people but when he became the
Messenger of Allah, he (S) concentrated solely on the
correction of humans as they were [and are] the epic center
of all corruption and if he/she is corrected, all will be
OK. He (S) started to meet his people on person to person
basis, invited them to the Deen of Allah based on the four
fundamental points of Islam that I have elaborated at the
very outset of this paper - Tawheed, Amanah, Accountability
and the Model of Rasulullah (S). Those who accepted his
Dawah Ilallah (DI), they became the integral part of his
Jamaa'h, the Islamic Movement of the time. He polished and
purified their character, behavior, attitude and the concept
of life and inspired them to do the same job of DI on the
pattern he (S) was doing. We call these Islamic workers the
reverend team of Sahabah (RA), the beloved companions of
Through his (S) Dawah efforts and that of his (S)
companions, especially that of Abu Bakr Siddiq (RA), he (S)
got 124 Islamic workers from Makkah as listed by Ibne Hisham
in his Seerah (S) and through the magnificent Dawah efforts
of Musaa'b bin Umair (RA) 63 from the tribes of Aus and 173
from Khazraj of Madinah. Out of this total strength that he
(S) gathered together in the first 15 years of his
Prophethood, he (S) mustered 310 in the Battle of Badr and
prayed to Allah: O Allah! Your promised help must come, if
not, You will not be worshipped ["La Tabud"]
Thus, he (S) built his team of devoted, dedicated and
committed brothers and sisters whose immense sacrifice of
time, talents, life and resources paved the way towards
establishing the Deen of Allah. This team provided the
Caliphs, the Generals, the Jurists, the Governors, the
Administrators, the foot solders and all that the Islamic
State needed to fulfill its obligations efficiently and
* Land: Rasulullah (S) was constantly in search of land to
establish the Deen of Allah and make it the HQ of the
Islamic Movement. He (S) first sent his 74 most talented
Sahabah to migrate to Ethiopia with a letter to its Emperor.
He became Muslim and permitted the Muslims to live in peace
but to the nasty game played by Quraish, the courtyard
peoples opposed it. Later on, after the death of Abu Talib
and Khadijah (RA) in the tenth year of Prophethood
Rasulullah (S) himself went to Taif with Zaid bin Harith
(RA) in his company. But due to the opposition of the tribal
chiefs of Taif, mission could not succeed and he (S)
returned to Makkah under the protection of an idolater Mutam
bin Adi. Later on, Allah (SWT) prepared the ground in
Madinah after the Second Aqabah Pledge in 622 AC. Muslim
migrated to Madinah which became the HQ of the Islamic
Movement and that of the Islamic State.
However, the Quraish did not like the concentration of
Muslims in Madinah. They attacked the City state of Madinah
time and again. Battle of Badr took place, then Uhud
followed by Trenches. Quraish could not defeat the Muslims.
Rasulullah (S) went for Umrah next year and the Treaty of
Hudaibiyah took place in the sixth of Hijra offering a peace
for ten tears. However, Quraish could not hold the treaty
and violated the terms. Rasulullah (S) attacked Makkah in
the eight year and conquered it very peacefully for Islam.
Taif also was annexed in the same year. In ninth year
Delegates from all parts of Arabian Peninsula came to
Madinah and entered into the fold of Islam in multitudes. By
the tenth year Islam became dominant through out the Arabian
Peninsula and Rasulullah (S) invited the rulers of his
contemporary world to the fold of Allah and the initial
skirmishes started occurring both against Iran and Roman
Empires in the last two years of his (S) Prophethood.
The domination of Islamic Civilization and culture continued
for about 1200 years afterwards and the last Khilafah of the
Ottoman dynasty was terminated by Mustapha Kamal Pasha of
Turkey in March 1923. However, the perfect model of
Rasulullah (S) in all respects is before us, challenging us
to follow it meticulously to get the desired results in the
context of modern world but the Ummah, unfortunately, is
not following it in its totally but shopping here and there,
especially in the context of Dawah Ilallah. As such, they
could not succeed in establishing the desired Islamic State
any where in this world.
WHAT TO DO NOW:
Now we have the Guidance intact in its most original form
and 57 Muslim countries where Muslims are in Majority but
not the trustworthy leadership and the Team of Da'ees on the
pattern Rasulullah (S) built his (S) team of Da'ees to
manage, control and run the affairs of Muslim Ummah. Since
the time the Khilafah was terminated, Islamic Movements in
Muslim world surfaced in the twenties and the thirties of
the last century. They have the vision and the program to
re-establish the Khilafah and the Islamic state but are
bogged down with innumerable national and community problems
of the time of colonial era and the legacies of foreign
rules. As such, they could not succeed in accomplishing
their goal due to constant interference of secular foreign
powers in their internal affairs and the ruthless behavior
of local autocratic/despotic rulers of the Muslim world. In
consequence, they are withering away and gradually drifting
away from their goal as so for they could not build the team
of trustworthy leadership and that of Da'ees in proportion,
2 - 3 % to their national population any where in the Muslim
world. Equally, they could not so for reach to the grass
root level of their respective countries.
They have the program, the agenda but not the trustworthy
leadership to attain it as the priority # one as was that of
Rasulullah (S). He (S) achieved his (S) Goal of
Iqamatuddeen within 23 years in spite of extraordinary
opposition both from inside and outside the Arabian
Peninsula. Islamic Movements will have to assess their whole
sole efforts, re-set their priorities, re-arrange their
strategies and evaluate the quantum of their efforts as to
whether it is sustained or erratic or lopsided?
Alhamdulillah, we have the most perfect model of Dawah
Ilallah, the most inspiring character of Rasulullah (S) and
the most accomplished Da'ee that the human society could
ever produced to follow his (S) footprints in the field of
Dawah. The Islamic Movements of our time have to build
Islamic leadership on the lines our beloved Prophet Muhammad
(S) did in old Jahiliyah. The nature of modern Jahiliyah and
its chemistry are the same as that of old one was. Only it
needs a will and the hands that could hurl the Haq over the
head of Batil and crush it and Batil is there to go. The
Islamic Movements are only to produce those trustworthy
hands, the leadership that could hurl the Haq over the head
of the Batil and crush it as Allah commands in Verse # 18 of
Surah Al-Ambiyah: "Nay. But We hurl the Truth against the
false and it does breaks its head and lo! It vanishes." Will
they all take care of it and reap the harvest that is
completely ripped to fall at their feet?
Can our Islamic Movements undertake it as their fastest
mission now onward and get this onerous job perfected
soonest, lets it becomes too late?
