"When the hypocrites come to you, they say: We bear witness
that you are most surely Allah's Messenger; and Allah knows
that you are most surely His Messenger, and Allah bears
witness that the hypocrites are surely liars."
[The Qur'an 63:1.]
Lynching and Murder of Qaddafi aimed at Defaming Islam:
NATO's Hand is Visible.
Here is why western media were so active in giving details
of the murder.
Reports and videos coming out of Libya indicate that the
hand of NATO is visible in the shameful murder of Muammar
Qaddafi. Mercenaries pounced on him, humiliated him, beat
him up and finally a secular Libyan shot him. One video
indicates that after being captured, he was sodomized with a
steel rod. The killers went beyond all the limits of decency
Islam does not permit any humiliation of prisoners of war
and certainly not of a leader. The crime was committed to
defame Islam and to convince the world that Muslims are
savage beasts who assault defenseless prisoners. The
disgusting procedures carried out against Qaddafi were right
out of the Guantanamo Bay, Bagram and Abu Ghraib mindset,
not that of Islam.
The Prophet's, pbuh, victory at Makkah, Salahuddin's victory
in Jerusalem, Taliban treatment of prisoners are absolutely
devoid of any torture and humiliation.
The attack on Sirte was clearly coordinated between the
French air force and Libyan mercenaries, not any Islamic
forces. Tribal Libyans who hated Qaddafi for tribal reasons
The slogan of Allahu Akbar is being cleverly and brutally
misused by the allies of the West. In Pakistan, the army
shouts "Allahu Akbar" when it slaughters Islamic opponents.
Karzai of Kabul and Maliki of Bagdad also liberally use
Islamic terminology. Now we see it so blatantly shouted in
In the US itself, Muslim supporters of the White House and
the Pentagon, have beards and hijab and take breaks for
prayers. CAIR and ISNA jumped to hail the downfall of
Qaddafi after it was clear to them that the White House and
intelligence services are on their side.
The central issue in Islam is not whether you pray or have a
beard or wear hijab. The central issues is, are you
supporting kuffar, imperialists, zionists, or are you
following the Qur'an and hadith in your policies.
Jamaat al-Muslimeen urges an impartial Islamic inquiry into
the murder of Qaddafi. This is not the task of the UN which
is party to the takeover of Libya.
Challenges Facing Libya after Qaddafi may be Insurmountable:
By Imam Badi Ali [National Islamic Shoora leader, North
Conclusion: Hillary Clinton was there when Qaddafi was
killed. A great game of deception has been played with the
Libyan people. They often had no idea what was going on.
How much will be the future debt. Under
Qaddafi, Libya was debt free..Large contracts are going to
NATO. Qatar was active on contract during the takeover.
Future deals with NATO wil include payment for security
forces, for advanced weaponry, for bombs of various sizes,
for mercenary soldiers and even the hotel bills and coffee
for covert action teams from NATO. It will be like Iraq: a
scramble for easy money.
Libya is a tribal society There are three main
area: Benghazi, which belongs to the resistance, Tripoli for
business and traders, and the south [Sirte etc] a desert
area. Qaddafi made deals with them. He had control systems
and a structure in place. Now the situation is delicate and
the unity of Libya can easily fracture.
The majority of Libyans are Maliki Sunnis. The
Sunnah was brought here by Salahuddin Ayyubi. Also there are
minority berbers who are Ibadis connected to Oman. [Hence
Oman was unhappy during the takeover.] Qaddafi kept them
united. There are berbers in Algeria and Morocco as well;
hence the chance of sectarian conflict.
Libya consists of shaky coalitions, groups,
individuals [many in exile]. They had nothing in common.
With him gone, the structure has no common foundation.
During this takeover, armed groups of a great
variety came into play, from extremely religious to the
entirely secular. [The man who killed Qaddafi had NY, for
New York, on his hat.] NATO, Qatar and Jordan brought heavy
weapons into Libya. Now they are all over the place. Huge
arsenals abound. Who will collect them and put them out of
circulation? [Remember, people in Egypt and Tunisia had no
Qaddafi had his own ideas and institutions
which held Libya together. Now there is no eastern book or
western book or even an Islamic book. The result will be a
western style Constitution which people won't understand.
People are simply not used to western ideas.
New alliances were established during the
takeover. NATO provided constant air cover and military back
up. Libyans wil now have to pay for this in the form of oil
and finances. French, Qatari and Jordanian flags were seen
during the takeover. Now they will exact a heavy price.
During the takeover, there were strong Islamic
appearances. Were these genuinely Islamic? It remains to be
seen. The Muslim Brotherhood [Ikhwan], al-Qaidah and the
Sufis were visible. The Sufis were first with Qaddafi and
later went against him. The Islamic people were easily
manipulated by the Qataris and other foreign elements. The
Islamic groups are critical of each other. Armed groups,
Islamic and tribal, are in control of various areas.
Under Qaddafi, Libya was an independent
country. There was no need for outside. Qaddafi kept Libya
highly socialized with health care, jobs and education for
all. Now Libyans are confused. Like the regimes in Bagdad
and Kabul, they will play no role in the world.
The big losers during the takeover were:
are: The US and the West. The Libyan people lost big
Turkey. 25000 Turks were part of the labor force and had to
On the central issue of Palestine, Libyans
now have no consistent policy. Some are saying "from Tripoli
to Jerusalem," others even go to the extent of "normal"
relations with Israel. Qaddafi was not confused like
Qaddafi did not have a real army. It was a
peoples or tribal army, more like a movement. What will
replace it is not clear US, French, Qatati and Jordanian
troops are there under various guises as 'special

Jamaat al-Muslimeen Literature given to 65 Muslims in
On October 21, after juma' prayers at the Islamic Center in
Newark, 65 people received JAM literature. Heavy rain storms

Live Radio Interview with Dr. Siddique: Oct.22
Ms. Clinton's Pakistani Dream + USA is Bombing Kunar with
all it has right now.
Qaddafi's Lynching is Preface to re-Colonization of Africa.
It's a form of terrorism.
Dr. Wilmer Leon, director of the "On With Leon" Show on XM
Radio, interviewed Dr. Kaukab Siddique on October 22. The
half hour interview was played live on XM. Dr. Leon is one
of the very few independent radio programmers who feel
strong enough to let Dr. Siddique come on live and
uncensored. on his show.
Here is a summary of the main points Dr. Siddique made in
response to Dr. Leon's questions:
USA and Pakistan have been playing a disinformation game to
fool the Pakistani public about their close military and
Ms. Clinton threatened to take military action against the
"Haqqani network" in Pakistani Waziristan if Pakistan does
not. General Kayani, Pakistan's "made-in-America" general,
whined loudly about the threat to Pakistan from the US and
said that it was not acceptable. Clinton then took back the
"threat" and said the two countries would work together to
eliminate the "network."
The absurdity of this situation is that there is no Haqqani
network. The mujahideen led by Haqqani are under the overall
command of Mullah Umar and are part of the Taliban. The US,
while urging the Pakistanis to attack Haqqani, have admitted
that they talked to Haqqani's people to bring them into the
US ambit! The ploy seems to have failed miserably.
As we speak, the US air force is bombing Kunar, the
extremely rugged Afghan province bordering Pakistan, where
the Haqqani mujahideen live. Long range missiles are being
used as well as long distance bombers coming all the way
from Qatar. [AFP & other western news sources.]
The US claims large Taliban losses in this new "Tora Bora"
but on the ground sources indicate that the losses are 4
Afghan children killed and their parents [who gave the
Pakistan's generals cannot help USA any further owing to two
Pakistan's military assaults against the Islamic
forces, the notorious Pak Taliban, in Swat, Dir, Adam Khel,
Khyber, Bajaur and South Waziristan, have over-extended
Kayani's troops. The Pak Taliban remain undefeated.
Jamaate Islami has mobilized millions of Pakistanis in
opposition to US intervention. This is a peaceful movement
but has become strong enough to isolate Kayani's moves and
has exposed America's extreme unpopularity.
The assassination of Shaykh Osama led the middle ranks of
the Paki military to question Kayani and the top generals.
They could not believe that the US had been given the right
to use Pak air space in its operation against Shaykh Osama
who is more popular in Pakistan than any other religious
America is facing defeat in Afghanistan. The Taliban are in
control of almost 70% of the country. The US wants Paki help
to inflict serious damage on the Taliban so that it can
claim victory as it withdraws [while retaining fortresses
and airports in major cities].
On LIBYA: The murder of Qaddafi is disgusting and sickening
for me although I consistently opposed his regime as I do
Qaddafi was lynched and then murdered. There is no scope for
such behavior in Islam or in international law.
Why was he captured and then killed? NATO seems to be behind
this act. The French have been working with Libyan
mercenaries to damage Libya beyond repair.
The killing was carried out in Sirte, which is a Qaddafi
stronghold. This murder in this location may well lead to
tribal warfare at a future date and hatred between the
Qaddafi tribe and the tribes of the attackers.
There is also news of US troops being sent to support Uganda
against an internal insurrection. There is open US
interference in Somalia and now a US-backed invasion of
Somalia by the heavily armed Kenya army.
Africa has tremendous wealth [all the way from gold to
diamonds to uranium and now oil] and American-European moves
are underway to re-colonize Africa.
The brutal murder of Qaddafi, slaughtered like an animal, is
an act of TERRORISM. It is meant to say to the African
people: See what we can do to you? If Europe can do this to
Qaddafi, who are you to feel safe from our power?
US-Backed Burundi Troops Fall into al-Shabab Ambush
On October 21, just outside Mogadishu, troops from Burundi,
supported by the US, were ambushed by al-Shabab Islamic
forces. The entire force of 60 troops was wiped out.
Al-Shabab called in al-Jazeerah and BBC to check on the
authenticity of their victory.
The Kenyan army advanced two miles into Somalia but is now
stalled and is awaiting reinforcements.
General Kayani Expels 18,000 People from Khyber area of
Shoot to kill order. Entire area Under Curfew.
On October 21, General Kayani ordered the ENTIRE Khyber
Agency to be evacuated by 12 Mid Day. Curfew has been
imposed and the army has shoot-to-kill orders against ANYONE
living in Khyber. The army wants a free fire zone to kill
Islamic militants who have been sabotaging the supply line
to NATO forces in Afghanistan. The army warned that damage
to homes of people who stayed behind would be the
responsibility of the owners.
According to the pro-government Daily Dawn, the army moved
in after a series of attacks by Islamic fighters. At last
reports [October 23] 18,000 people had left their homes in

free fire zone is a form of genocide which is clearly

Letter: From a scholar of World War II: Re: Qaddafi: Heinous
Lynching, hideous murder
Dear Dr. Siddique,
Thank you for making this good point. When I first learned
of the circumstances of Qaddafi's death, I was disgusted.
For any normal person, his treatment was a shame. Sadly,
though, so much that's being done these days is shameful.

Letter: Islam Prohibits Mistreatment of Prisoners :Re:
Thank you for the article on the treatment of POWs.
All Muslims know that The Prophet would never allow his
fighters to even think of such things.
Professional Fighters are not allowed to do such things.
I said from the beginning their peoblem was not being professional.
Now we see the result when fighters do not know what they are doing.
Even when they "win" it does not look good.
Let us hope this does not turn into Afghanistan after the
Soviets were forced out.
If inter-tribal fighting starts hopefully there will be a Libyan "Taliban" !
Letter: Re: Libya. Why didn't you speak when Qaddafi killed
Why didn't you people say similar things about Gaddafi when
he shot and killed 1200 prisoners in '96 who were peopel who

worse than him .... these were victims who killed just one
soul who was at war and had killed and lynched thousands
while that tyrant massacred 1200 while imprisoned in a tiny
cell and robbed the wealth of the nation. How can you
compare the two ...
May Allah give him the due punishment Himself moer
appropriatre to his crimes .... lynching is no equivalent to
his enormous crimes committed with the friendship and
subservience to the western zionist kuffar.

hard to bring an end to this tyranny and liberated this

Ed note: New Trend was the only Islamic publication which
did condemn Qaddafi's atrocities. Looks like you have taken
the info from New Trend and are trying to turn it against
us. He was not following Islam. We know that Islam respects
the rights even of enemies. What was done to him is in
direct violation of Qur'an and Hadith..
Health OF Ummah - Is it a terminal Patient
[Shamim A Siddiqi, New York ]
About 50 years back, I invited my brother-in law, Late
Shafiq Ahmad of Karachi who was very fond of Muslim League
to join the Islamic Movement of Pakistan. I was in Dhaka .
He was very reluctant to embrace JIP. I wrote a letter to
him giving a vivid description of ML like a patient lying on
bed, counting its last days. It was so sick that its hands
fell on the ground, body parts were falling apart, legs were
paralyzed. No movement was visible. However, it was
breathing, the last sign of life appearing from its heaving
I asked Shafiq : do you like to be the companion of such a
terminal patient who is dying or is likely to die any
moment? He felt so much disgusted with this scenario that
he joined the IM forthwith. May Allah forgive his sins, if
any and place his soul in Jannatul Firdaus.
Unfortunately, the Ummah has practically lost all its charm
and character to attract others but Muslims are extremely
unconscious of its precarious condition, and taking its
health as normal are busy in their day to day "routines" as
usual, not thinking for the least that they are accountable
to their Lord one Day ultimately. I wonder: how they will
This similarity, in fact, raises some very important
questions about Ummah as to where it stands to day. How
much it is paralyzed and dysfunctional in its socio,
economic, and political fields, national and International
affairs, limping in moral and ethical standards, lagging far
behind in fulfilling its obligation to call humanity to the
fold of its Creator and Sustainer, experiencing a total
failure in delivering justice [Al-Adl wa Al-Qist] to mankind
and neglecting its very objective for which it was raised
as "Ummatun Wasatan".[the best of nations] as emphasized by
Allah in Verses # 104 and 110 of Surah # 3, Al-Imran.
Is it carrying out in any form its top most obligation to
stand in the witness box of human history? Is it playing its
dominant part towards maintaining equilibrium in nations and
communities at all the fronts or just keeping "mum" and
behaving like a silent spectator everywhere? Has it
forgotten its prominent job to stand towards removing
injustices from the socio-economic-political spheres of
human life in order to make his abode as the cradle of
peace, justice and security for all and malice to none? How
it will face the Mighty Court of Allah and "accept" its
failure in fulfilling the mission of Rasulullah (S) in the
last and the current millennium to serve as the "Mizan"
[Scale] of Justice and fair play?
THE AILMENTS: Ummah is not fulfilling any of its aforesaid
obligations and by virtue of that it has rendered Islam -
the Deen of Allah, into a "religion" of some rituals and
Ebadah as Jews and Christians have rendered their original
"Islam" into Judaism and Christianity. Muslims are
practicing Islam as a religion restricted to some beliefs,
customs, dogmas, traditions and follow them like rituals -
as some lifeless formalities just to maintain their link
with Islam for the name sake.
Their prayers are just like routines - a formality that they
are standing before their Lord hand folded but totally
absent from what they are reciting, what they are praying
and begging from their Lord, what they are committing to
act, live and behave on this earth. They are standing in
Salah but mostly wandering like a "vagabond" in the
wilderness of their worldly life and its day to day
engagements, giving the least or no consideration at all to
whom they are facing and what they are begging from Him.
The results of such Salah are disastrous. With a few
exceptions here and there, a good number of Muslims are
habituated to offer prayers both in congregation or
individually day and night but the matter of remembrance of
their Lord is missing altogether. As such, they get nothing
or very little from their Salah in return from their Lord.
This makes their Salah an "exercise" in futility. They
hardly get closeness to Allah as Salah is the ascension
[Mairaj] of each Muslim towards Allah. So is the case of all
the Ebadah of the Muslim Ummah. They are fasting with all
formalities but the spirit of devotion to inculcate Taqwah
through the fasting is found missing. In consequence, they
are unable to make their life "Allah-conscious" or getting
any taste of it. Thus, the essence of fasting is mostly
The condition of Hajj is rather, more lamentable. They
perform it as a ritual devoid of the spirit of self
sacrifice and devotion which every "directive" of Hajj
They go for Hajj and came back as they go, mostly empty
handed as on return no apparent change is visible in their
life pattern except one title of "Haji" is added to their
name. Those who are the men of means go every year for
non-obligatory Hajj but what they get only they know and
their Allah. They go for non-obligatory Hajj every year and
leave behind a lot of Obligations unattended. It reminds me
of the story of Abdullah Ibne Masood (RA).
Once he was proceeding to Makkah on a non-obligatory Hajj
with his Khadim [attendant]. On the way he saw a girl on a
wayside garbage dump. She was searching something in it and
something she was hiding in her hand. He was surprised and
went to her asking: "Daughter, what are you searching here?"
She replied, "My mother told me that if you are hungry for
three days, you can take any thing that you could find on
the dump" He asked and what you are hiding behind you? She
showed it to him. It was a dead bird in her hand. Seeing
this pathetic situation, he (RA) asked his Khadim, "how much
money he has for the journey?' The Khadim replied, "Four
hundred Dirham" Ibne Masood (RA) asked him to go with this
girl to her mother, keep 20 Dirham for the return journey
and give the balance 380 Dirham to her mother. Our Hajj is
completed. Alhamdulillah, these are the most eye opening
words of the Faqih of this Ummah. Will the people who rush
for Hajj every year take any lesson from it?
So is the case with Zakah. It is in the most disorganized
shape. There are very small numbers of Muslims who pay
Zakah. The rest abstain or ignore and do not pay at all as
an obligatory Ebadah for the rehabilitation of the economy
of the poor and the needy.
Zakah is the Self-sustained Welfare System of Islam but it
is in the most disorganized form throughout the Muslim
Ummah. Allah gave us the means to remove poverty from our
midst but no where in any Muslim country it is implemented
as an organized Institution at any stage of our community
life though there are 57 Muslim countries in the world. What
a great tragedy it is!
This explains the condition of Ummah about the very Ebadah
that it is performing while taking Islam as a "religion". So
we are the "so-called" Muslims as the Jews and Christian
have become. Now please tell us why Allah should respond to
our prayers and what for? With Allah everything is
conditional. "You fulfill your commitment, only then He will
fulfill His promise" [Ref" Verse # 40 of Al-Baqarah] That
is why I compared its condition with a terminal patient - a
lifeless body that may succumb any time to the multiple
adverse situations that the Ummah is confronted with.
THE CAUSES: It can be enumerated briefly as under:
THE CURE: If the causes as spelled out above are removed
from the body politics of Ummah and it is actively involved
in fulfilling the requisite obligations, the Ummah will
resurrect its fate within a decade or so Insha Allah. It
will give Barakah in our efforts manifold. The terminal
patient will then rise afresh to change its destiny as well
as the destiny of mankind to new frontiers of peace,
progress and security with justice for all and malice to
The aforesaid discussion confirms the tragedy that the
Ummah is taking Islam as a religion and not as "Al-Deen"
whereas Allah proclaims: "Inna Al-Deena Indallahe Al-Islam"
- With Allah Islam is the only Deen" [Ref: verse # 19 of
Surah Al-Imran] that covers the entire spectrum of human
life from birth to death and from cradle to grave. Ebadah is
only a segment of it. As such, Muslims are neglecting all
other essential segments of Deen and lost the leadership of
Equally, Islam is a Movement. A Muslim cannot sit idle
till Allah's Deen becomes dominant and Allah's authority is
established every where in the world. Verse # 111 and 112 of
Surah Al-Tawbah, Verse # 125 to 128 of Surah Al-Nahal and
Verse # 33 & 34 of Surah Al-Fussalat demand of every Muslim
and Muslimah to undertake it as the mission of his/her life
and call humanity to the fold of its Creator and Sustainer
till the last breath of life. This factor is mostly missing
from our life. The Dawah activities of the Islamic Movements
around the world are limited within the national boarders.
They couldn't think to extend its blessings globally. All
are bogged down with the community affairs of their
respective homelands and Dawah efforts could not be extended
to its logical culminating point which is the entire human
Interference of foreign powers within the internal
affairs of Muslim world who are supporting and maintaining
the usurper heads of the Muslim countries for their
nefarious ends to perpetuate their secular rules. They all
are overwhelmed by the cultural domination of the West and
are "lost" in its web.
Ummah has lost the sense of direction that it is raised
as the leader of mankind to guide its destiny and deliver
justice to the human abode and be its models in every walk
of life both at individual and collective spheres. This goal
is missing altogether from our collective life. It would
have inspired them to fulfill that role again.
As such, it has forgotten that it is to stand as the
"Witness to Mankind" in this world and in Akhirah.
Dearth of Dependable and Trustworthy leadership and the
Committed Team of Da'ees in thousands and thousands in each
Muslim land to guide the Islamic Movements to their glorious
end and run the affairs of the country positively on the
lines directed in the Qur'an and demonstrated by Rasulullah
(S) in his (S) life pattern. When the requisite numbers are
available to Ummah, its condition will start changing
forthwith, faster than our expectation, Insha Allah.
Let every Muslim fulfill consciously what he or she commits
at least 17 times in our daily prayers by reciting: "IYYAKA
NABUDU WA IYYAKA NASTA'EEN" [We worship Thee only and seek
help only from Thee - the symbol of total surrender to
It is my conviction that if Muslims just follow the meanings
and the concept of Surah Al-Fateha meticulously in their day
to day life and change their life pattern accordingly, they
can change their destiny altogether in no time. It is what
that I have humbly presented in my book: "Al-Fateha & Its
Significance". It is available on my Website:
WWW.dawahunamericas.com I would request the readers to go
through it thoroughly and get out of the list of "Terminal
Patient" within twinkling of an eye. It will bring them
closer to Allah, make their respective Salah meaningful and
will help immensely in changing their life as models for
others, Insha Allah.
I pray to Allah to give us Tawfeeq, especially to our
Sisters and Dawah oriented workers to pilot the fate of
Muslim Ummah in this country and be its model for the rest
