We recommend this 2 CD set:
Hadith Jibreel: Foundations of the Deen, by Dr. Haifaa
Younis; available from:
Don't be fooled by the slick Republicans. See Dr. Wilmer
Leon's study of the Republican Convention.
Scroll way down.
Don't be fooled by Obama's Convention either [starting
today, September 4]. Obama's people are supporting:
Random sex, with condoms provided by the government.
Abortion on demand.
Homosexual marriage [male on male, female on female].
The Zionist media will work their magic to support Obama.
Guess who was the first pro-Obama person on MSNBC this
morning? Medeleine Albright, the very one responsible for
the slow death of ONE MILLION iraqis under US-UN sanctions.
Greensboro, North Carolina
Voices of Muslims in America Oppose Zionism, Racism and the
Exploitation of Women. Condemn Israel, Support Palestine.
National Islamic Shoora of Jamaat al-Muslimeen
On September 1, 2012, the National Islamic Shoora met for 12
hours to discuss the most important issues facing Muslims in
America and to set guidelines for the oppressed Muslim
masses in this country.
The program was hosted by Imam Badi Ali, the popular imam of
a well attended mosque in Greensboro. He encouraged the
Shoora to speak to the issues and to be realistic, and to
find non-violent means to speak and lead about Islam.
Sis. Laila Yaghi was the guest speaker bringing out the
tragic imprisonment of her son Ziyad. Her speech was factual
and to the point but filled with the sorrow of a mother who
has lost her son to the injustice system of America. She
should be on every TV channel in America but Zionist control
of the media does not permit it.
There was intense debate about passing one of the
resolutions. Please see number 14 below.
The main speakers were:
Br. Kaukab siddique [Pennsylvania] Ameer of JAM, who also
chaired the Shoora.
Sis. Ashira, Secretary General of the Jamaat. [From
Br. Robert Solano [Texas].
Br. Yusuf Ireland. Advocacy Director [Tennessee]
Nadrat Siddique [Washington, DC]
Islam is Winning. We don't need Conspiracy Theories
Br. Kaukab's speech was partly about the uprising of the
Muslim masses in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen, Libya and Syria.
Numbers don't matter,he said. Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, and
the Sahaba, r.a., were always outnumbered by the kuffar, the
yahood and the Nasara but were victorious. The Soviet Union
was undermined by Afghan resistance. USA has had to withdraw
from Iraq and NATO is facing disaster in Afghanistan.
Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan, Egypt, Libya, Syria [ongoing]
none of these important Islamic victories were predicted by
the western intelligence agencies. So please, don't tell us
about conspiracies of the West. They are the ones who have
If you vote democrat, you are voting for Abu Jahl. If you
vote for republicans, you are voting for Abu Lahab. A
corrupt system cannot be changed by becoming a part of it.
Look at the renegades [ISNA, ICNA, CAIR]: what a mess they
have created, supporting Clinton, Bush and Obama.
Openly, Obama is supporting women who want abortion on
demand. He wants religious groups to provide sexual
paraphernalia to single women who want random sex.
Both parties support Israel. Both want war on Muslims.
Use peaceful means like the Internet, attorneys, well
organized protests, publicity person-to-person. Create your
own media. Society can be influenced without becoming part
Africa is essential to the Jamaat al-Muslimeen movement.
Sis. Ashira spoke about African countries she has visited:
Ghana, Nigeria, Sudan, Ethiopia. Prophet Muhammad, pbuh,
sent the first muhajerin to Ethiopia and the Ethiopian ruler
embraced Islam. Most of Africa, about 80%, is Muslim. Owing
to economic disasters perpetrated by western powers and the
400 years of slavery in Amerca, the African people need
help. Humanitarian and peaceful methods are badly needed.
Sis Ashira herself has initiated charitable projects in
Orphans, students, families, mosques, schools need help. We
have opened the doors into these countries. We invite the
Muslims of America to join these efforts. Many African
American people had ancestors in these countries. Sis.
Ashira's own ancestors seemingly were brought as slaves from
Ghana's Elmina castle.
Dawah in the Spanish speaking communities is badly needed
Br. Solano from Texas spoke about the Islamic heritage of
the Spanish speaking [Hispanic, Latino/latina] communities.
When the Inquisition carried out a genocide of Muslims in
Spain, it seemed as if Islam there had been wiped out. But
in the last 20 years, Hispanic people in Mexico and the US
have been searching for and sometimes finding their Muslim
roots. The number of Spanish speaking mosque communities in
Mexico are increasing. Br. Solano has visited some of them
Br. Solano married a Mexican woman and his daughters are
named Khadija and 'Aisha. He has personally given the
Spanish translation of the Qur'an to 500 people. He had
brought CDs about Islam in Spanish which he presented to
Imam Badi and other Shoora members. He also brought
beautifully produced Spanish translations of the Qur'an as
Authentic Islam has become very Rare In America
Br. Yusuf Irelandi spoke about the easy going attitudes of
Muslims in America. Many who have come from overseas behave
as if they have been liberated. They do all that non-Muslims
do but still claim to be Muslims. It's quite common to see
Muslims selling pork and liquor and indulging in riba.
Br. Yusuf is critical of Interfaith activities which create
the impression that Islam is just another religion like
Christianity. We should talk to people of other religions if
they want to understand Islam. We would be indulging in
SHIRK if we start behaving as if those who accept Jesus,
pbuh, as god are not kuffar.
Our task is to organize a Jamaat which would show people how
Muslims are supposed to love and behave according to Qur'an
At this time, Muslims seem to be suffering from the
Stockholm Syndrome. They love the oppressors who control
their lives. It's not going to be easy to change this
situation. These Muslims are completely spineless and think
that this land is so wonderful that they should just keep
quiet about being Muslim.
Working with Dissident Groups and Young Muslims in
Nadrat Siddique was 14 when she joined Jamaat al-Muslimeen.
Today she is actively engaged in working for and with groups
striving for the rights of the people. She shared her
experiences with the Shoora about activists in both
Washington and Baltimore. She spoke about Luci Murphy who
sings about the suffering of the Palestinian people,
including the horrors of Sabra and Shatilla. She described
her meetings with the supporters of political prisoners like
Imam Jamil, Mumia Jamal, Ziyad Yaghi and others.
She described the work of the Black Think Tank in Baltimore
and the activities of "Shorty" Duane Davis who has invented
the idea of using toilets to symbolize the corruption of
Owing to her efforts, she is able to provide a Muslim
presence in just about all protest movements in the
Washington-Baltimore areas.. In addition, she hosts a youth
group which carries out poetry reading and Islamic literary
presentations. She supports Masjid al-Islam, led by Imam
Musa, in Washington, in addition to Masjid Jamaat

about its benefit and/or damage but was finally passed by
1. The Liberation of Palestine is central to our cause.
2. All political prisoners should be freed, including Ziyad

Jamil al-Amin, Imam Abu Touba, Imam Abdullah Hasan, Dr.
Kifah al-Jayyousi, Ehsan al-Sadeqee, as well as Black,
Native American, Puerto Rican and many others.
3. The exploitation and objectification of women is ruining
the moral basis of this society and Muslim awareness of
crimes against women, including rape, murder, humiliation,
mental torture and domestic violence is required to fulfil
our duties as Muslims.
4. Elections in America in the current capitalist mode are
irrelevant to the needs of the poor, the downtrodden, the
oppressed and the exploited.
Bombing & Occupation
5. Stop the bombing of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and
Somalia. Extra-judicial killings have no place in a society
6. The intrigues of the western powers and Israel against
iran can lead to another war and should be exposed and
7. Israel has occupied Palestine and should be dismantled by
Educators & Policy makers.
8 Educators and policy makers should be answerable for
misleading the nation.
9. The Israeli "judgement" against the murder of Rachel
Corrie has once again exposed terrorism and injustice as
the core "values" of Zionism.
Zionism & Racism
10. Zionism, racism, White Supremacist ideas and terrorism
are inter-related and integral to each other.
11. The condition of FIVE MILLION undocumented persons
living without legal papers for 10 years in USA has caused
immense suffering which should be rectified through
"War on Drugs."
12. There should be an independent investigation of the "war

anyone to be abused, insulted or humiliated but we denounce
President Obama's legitimization of homosexual marriage
which is an attack on all that is holy to Islam and
Christianity. Homosexuality does not have a place in any
community, Islamic or Christian.
Letter: This Reader thinks the conflict in Africa is
partially about Race
You left out three of the most important 'ism': Capitalism,
Christianity and neocolonialism are the most destructive
forces on the face of this planet to people and nations. It
is the love of Capitalism which turned the mulatto Arabs in
Libya against Black Libyan Africans. Dollar bills turn Arab
neocolonialist racist mulattos in Syria against the
government of Syria, as the Nicaragua Mulatto
Hispanic/Latina Negro was turned against the people of
Curtis Mullins [Nothern California]
[Ed. Note: Dear reader: You are partially correct. However,
the world is changing. All the people of Africa are Black of
varying shades. It's not a racial conflict. The forces of
Islam are emerging victorious. Islam does not fit into any
racial category. As the dictators go down, the Islamic
forces will be free to implement the Qur'an. The West
intervened by bombing Libya and now by letting the Syrian
people be killed by Assad. These moves are not going to
help the West. No one can be worse than Mubarak, Ben Ali,
Qaddafi [in his final years] and Assad. Be patient. The
banners of Islam are rising.]
Pakistan Observed Support Hijab Day on September 4.
Capitalism Opposes Modest Dress for Women:
Dr. Ruskhsana Supports Women's Right to wear Hijab
Lahore: 02 Sep. Dr Rukhsana Jabeen, general secretary
Jamaate Islami's women's wing, said in a press statement
that Hijab is the fundamental right of a Muslim woman who
wants to obey the teachings of Islam. She said that hijab
serves as a protective shield and promotes a modest
Dr Jabeen said that capitalistic mindset forces women to be
immodest and women are objectified as sell-able
She said that Islamic teachings promote women's education,
and hijab is not a hurdle in the progress of women. Dr
Jabeen said that if a Muslim woman wants to observe hijab
and pardah, she should not face any discrimination because
She said that it is deplorable that some so called Muslims
are also against hijab because of their apologetic behaviour
and western mindset. Dr Jabeen urged human rights
organizations to raise their voice and stop hijab based
discrimination against Muslim women.
Pakistan in a nutshell: As Described by Syed Munawar Hasan.
September 2: The JI Ameer said that feudal lords and
capitalists had been in power in the countryduring the last
sixty five years and more than 80 per cent of the country's
wealth was in the hands of a few families. The poor workers
were unable to make both ends meet even after toiling all
the day long and were deprived of basic facilities of health
Therefore, he said, it was high time that the masses
understood the situation and rejected the gang of
exploiters, plunderers and thieves.
Thousands of Pakistani women join rallies on Hijab Day
LAHORE, Sep. 4: Thousands of women across the country
joined the rallies in support of their right to observe
Hijab, on the occasion of the world Hijab Day on Tuesday. An
appeal for observing the Hijab Day in a befitting manner had
been made by the Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Syed
Munawar Hasan. Rallies were organized by the JI Women's wing
in major cities including Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad.
The rally in the Punjab capital was held outside the Lahore
Press Club and was led by the President, Women and Family
Commission of the JI, Begum Samiah Raheel Qazi, assistant
Secretary General, JI, Women wing, Aafia Sarwar and deputy
chief, women wing, Lahore, Zubaida Jabeen. The participants
carried placards and banners stressing their right to
observe Hijab and denouncing the campaign against Hijab from
the western and secular lobbies.
JI Secretary General, Liaqat Baloch, addressing the rally,
said that the western society had deprived the women of
their right to observe Hijab in the name of women's rights
and liberalism, which had ruined both the family system and
the society in the west. He said that Hijab and Purdah were
in fact, the real asset of the women and ensured the proper
upbringing of the children.
He said that the use of the women for commercial purposes
had virtually ruined the western society. But unfortunately,
he said, the Pakistani rulers, blindly copying the west and
in order to please their foreign masters, wanted to exploit
the women folk in the name of women's emancipation and
women's rights. However, he said, the JI would continue its
struggle for the protection of women's rights and the
enforcement of the Islamic system as well.
He said that the US and its allies were on the run from this
region and the JI and the Islam lovers would also compel
their agents to flee from the area. The westernized NGOs, he
said, were busy in propaganda against Islam but the JI
wanted the freedom for all religions in this country in
accordance with the constitution and the law. All efforts to
target Islam would however, be foiled.
Liaqat Baloch said that the extremists in the west were
hurting the sentiments of the Muslims by blaming Islam for
terrorism and by desecrating the Holy Quran and publishing
JI Lahore chief, Amirul Azeem, speaking on the occasion,
said that France which claimed to be champion of human
rights, had denied the Muslim women the right to observe
Hijab. However, he was sure that all such tactics would
prove counter productive and Islam would remain on the march
in the West as well.
Appeal: Support Jamaate Islami Pakistan
Canadian Convert to Islam from Ismailism Appeals for Release
of Christian girl accused of Qur'an Desecration
No doubt the Blasphemy law is much needed in this world of
religious hatred, discrimination and segregation: Mainly in
the case of the hatred of OneCreator-GOD
and HIS Holy Scripture, which is so strong that some wants
to burnHIS 'Word' the Holy Book, HIS followers are
Persecuted and branded as Islamistsand terrorists. We all
love and cherish the obedient children but we hate those who
are obedient to Creator-GOD and HIS Law.
On the other hand the misinterpretation of the Holy
Scripture the Quran has jeopardized the true meaning of the
divine Message and has turnedsome into terrorists who think
killing the non-Muslims is martyrdom and a freepassage into
Paradise; how are they deluded.
Thus, in case of blaspheme law, it would definitely apply
inthe case of hateful grown up, but still doesn't give a
free ride to death penalty, especially not to a 15 yrs.old
child and not even a day in prison.
A Pakistani Christian girl (suffering from illness)
allegedly desecratedthe Quran, but in what circumstances?
How did she get the Quran? Was she giventhe Quran to read by
her Muslim friends? Did she understand the Message? Wasshe
angry, hateful of the Muslims, or on her parent's order she
simply got ridof it as just another book? Not realizing the
meaning of the Holy Book that has come from the same GOD of
her Book the Bible.
No matter what circumstances, I don't think she had any idea
what the Quran is, which means she is not guilty as charged.
Even some grownups have no idea what the Quran is and who is
it from? So how on earth can we blame a 15yr. old child?
I myself had no idea what the Quran was until I converted to
Islam. My Great Grandparents wereordered to throw away the
Qurans and never to touch them, or never enter the homes
where the Quran was recited and never to drink water from
such followers of theScripture. So, such blasphemous order
was followed seriously and up to today theorder is still
obeyed by some in ignorance, who have no idea what the
HolyScripture is. In reality, after reading and following
the Quran one becomes familiarwith all the Biblical Prophets
and closer to the other Holy Scriptures the Old
Testament,,the Torah, the Gospel of Messiah Jesus (AS) and
the Bible that are all embodied in the Quran, which means
desecrating or burning the Quran is burning of all the past
Apparently, the major ignorance of One GOD is the mainreason
of such hatred; for as long as one cannot recognize HIM one
will alwayscarry such hatred of the Holy Scripture. The
question arises whether an ignorant 15yr old child can be
blamed under the blasphemy law? No, obviously not.
If the answer is yes from anyone then I would put the one in
the category of Bush the Bully who threw away a 15yr old
child Omar Khadar in Guatanamo. Bush became the 2nd Hitler
for many and anyone else usingthe same cruelty on an
ignorant 15 yr old child would be called the 3rd Hitler.
However, if one is a practicing Sunni Muslim meaning
following the Sunnah/tradition/teaching of the Universal
Messenger Muhammad (SAWS) should immediately free the girl
without any delay. The Muslim prisons aren't for children
and Women and certainly not for the torture of male
A Muslim must follow the Sharia/Divine Law as practiced by
GOD'S Messenger (SAWS) who forgave those who attempted to
murder him. Without following his Sunnah/tradition mankind
is bound to deviate from the true Islam.
Let us follow the true Islam and join the Pakistani group
Jamaate Islami and request the Pakistani Law-makers to
excuse the girl and let her go free immediately. She just
needs to say 'Sorry' and that's it.

The Republican Convention
Liars Don't Lead. They Mislead
By Dr. Wilmer J. Leon III
A leader is defined as a person who manages the process of
social influence in which he/she honestly enlists the aid
and support of others in the accomplishment of a common
task. A liar is a person who intentionally delivers a false
statement to another person in order to deceive that person.
Liars don't lead, they mislead.
Leadership was a common theme articulated throughout the
Republican National Convention. Republican's contend that
President Obama lacks the leadership necessary to move the
country beyond the current economic crisis and does not
possess the leadership necessary to navigate the treacherous
international waters going forward. Republicans contend
that former governor Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan (D-WI)
possess the leadership qualities to effectively manage the
economy and strengthen America's position on the global
There continues to be honest and fact based debate between
President Obama's supporters and detractors alike regarding
his leadership tactics and negotiating skills. Many
question his dealing with Speaker Boehner and other
Republicans on issues such as the Bush-era tax cuts, the
debt ceiling, and the assassination of Libyan leader Muammar
Gaddafi. The difference between these debates and what was
presented at the Republican convention is the utter lack of
factual content by too many Republicans presenters. They
were not misstatements, exaggerations, mistakes, or errors.
They were false statements intentionally delivered in order
to deceive the listener.
During his acceptance speech, Rep. Ryan falsely accused
President Obama of "raiding" Medicare by $716 billion. Ryan
falsely attacked President Obama for failing to keep open a
Janesville, WI GM plant that actually closed under Bush in
2008. He castigated the president for walking away from the
Simpson Bowles commission deficit-cutting recommendations
when Ryan himself, a commission member, voted against those
recommendations and never made reference to the fact that he
was on the commission. Ryan also lied by blaming Obama for a
budget deficit mostly created by programs Ryan himself voted
for. According to the NY Times, Ryan "lamented the nation's
credit rating — which was downgraded after a debt-ceiling
standoff that he and other House Republicans helped
During his acceptance speech, Ryan said, "I accept the duty
to help lead our nation out of a jobs crisis and back to
prosperity..." No Mr. Ryan, you can't "lead our nation" by
lying to it and failing to take responsibility for problems
that you helped create. Liars don't lead, they mislead.
Former Secretary of State Rice spoke on behalf of the Romney
campaign telling America that we "can't lead from behind."
Well, suffice it to say, she's been lying a long time and
her lies are well documented. Go to Rep. Henry Waxman's
(D-CA) report Iraq on the Record: the Bush Administration's
Public Statements on Iraq. According to the report,
"Between September 8, 2002, and September 28, 2003, National
Security Advisor Rice made 29 misleading statements (lies)
about the threat posed by Iraq in 16 separate public
appearances...Ms. Rice made significantly more statements
that were false — 8 — than any of the other four officials
(Cheney, Rumsfeld, Bush, or Powell)... "
Finally, at the top to ticket the truth is just as hard to
find. Romney said, "Unlike President Obama, I won't raise
taxes on the middle class of America." According to the
TaxPolicyCenter, his tax plan lowers on the top 2% of
earners and raises taxes on everyone else; taxes on the
middle class would go up by about $2,000 to pay for Romney's
tax cut for the wealthy. Romney also stated "And unlike the
president, I have a plan to create 12 million new jobs." The
truth is, President Obama proposed the American Jobs Act,
and it was killed by congressional Republicans. According to
PoliticusUSA "The second part of Romney's lie was a bit more
devious. Romney promised to create 12 million new jobs,
(knowing) that economic forecasts show that if nothing is
done, the economy will create 11.8 on it's own..."
Another lie that Romney told during his speech was, "I will
begin my presidency with a jobs tour. President Obama began
with an apology tour..." As The Washington Post's Fact
Checker put it, "The claim that Obama repeatedly has
apologized for the United States is not borne out by the
facts, especially if his full quotes are viewed in context."
In other words, Romney's proclamation is a lie.
In his speech Romney said about Ryan, "...I saw in Paul Ryan
- a strong and caring leader who is down to earth and
confident in the challenge this moment demands." Ryan's not
down to earth. He's a man who has willingly constructed a
narrative to create artificial distinctions between
President Obama and himself. He's not a leader, he's a
Romney said about himself, "Americans have a choice. A
decision. To make that choice, you need to know more about
me and about where I will lead our country." Well, Romney
will lead America back to the polices of Bush 43 and VP Dick
Cheney but they were conspicuously absent at the convention,
Romney/Ryan can't lead America down the right path with lies
and deceit. We saw that movie with their Republican
predecessor with the help of Ms. Rice.
Romney pollster Neil Newhouse stated, "Fact checkers come to
this with their own sets of thoughts and beliefs, and we're
not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact
checkers..." In a representative democracy facts do matter
and checking the facts is how we hold our representatives
accountable. Romney and Ryan have based their campaign on
"smoke and mirrors," "slight of hand," political
prestidigitation, lies and deceit.
Liars don't lead; they mislead.

Comments on Topics in New Trend
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen New York City.]
As-salaamu-'alaikum Bro. Siddique,
I was reading through some of the New Trend articles and I
have a a question about one and a statement about another.
[Spotlight #5: Psychopaths are committing serious
crimes.They live in society but are influenced by para
psychological forces. We should teach our children about
Jinn, satan, demons which can influence our lives.]
My question is do evil spirits influence us the way
Catholics believe? They are into the practice of exorcising
demons out of people. My understanding, from the Qur'an, is
that evil spirits and shaytan cannot harm us directly but, I
am aware of the suggestions that create jealous feelings and
I also work with many mentally ill people who hear voices
telling them to do terrible things to themselves. A man was
in the stretcher next to my table and took a bottle of
pills. When the doctor asked him why, the patient said
because the voices told him to do it. Is this what Imam Badi
Ali was talking about?
Sikh Temple Burning. I did not here about that Mosque being
burned down and I am surfing the Internet all of the time.
So, maybe this story was censored Online, too? Anyway,
many idiots in New York mesh Muslims with Sikhs all of the
Shooting Sprees. I prognosticate, unfortunately, that once
these soldiers start coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan
that more of these shooting sprees will occur. Many of
these soldiers were forced to take pharmaceutical drugs that
were not FDA approved (not that that means anything) to
vaccinate themselves against disease among other things.
They have witnessed many terrible things that they could
never be prepared to experience and plus, some of them are
just stone-cold racist, anti-Muslim devils. The root of
racism is white supremacist lies but, this ex-soldier
targeted this Sikh Temple because of its religious practice.
However, it is strange how Black Churches were once
targeted by White Christians simply because of the race of
Maybe what El Hajj Malik Shabazz stated was true about a
revolution overtaking America. However, he did not believe
that it would be racial. He believed it would be between
good and evil.
