Local News: Correct Eid al-Fitr
In Baltimore, Against the Incorrect Eid of the Majority:
Pioneering Step Worked.
On August 9, Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen organized Eid
al-Fitr prayers at its masjid in center city. It was a
pioneering step because major mosques in this area went for
the wrong date: August 8, without sighting the crescent or
even trying to sight it.
Br. Kaukab Siddique led the Eid prayers and gave the khutba.
The gathering was small but impressive for a first time at
Br. Kaukab explained why this step was taken. He said: For
years we have been advising the big mosques that sighting of
the crescent is required for Ramadan and both Eids. Qur'an
and hadith are clear on this matter, but the heavily funded
groups don't budge. Dunya, not deen, is their quest.
The reasons for the deviance of the majority are:
Assimilation, wanting to have a "christmas" for Muslims
with fixed dates.
Blind following of leaders.
Nationalism. Calling Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan to find
if it is Eid.
Munafiqueen working for Eid dates which will bring them
biggest crowds and funds.
Puppet organizations linked to the US government & Saudi
Arabia. [4 letter groups.]
Ignorance of Muslims who don't know that "new" moon is
not visible. The world is not flat.
Text: "Musa said gto his people: Allah commands that you
slaughter a cow. They said: Do you make fun of us. He said:
I take refuge with Allah from being among the Ignorant."
[The Qur'an 2:67.] 1.
Text #2: "Maazia 'Udawiya, r.a., narrates that: I asked
Ayesha, r.a., the wife of the Prophet, pbuh, did the
messenger of Allah, pbuh, fast three days in every month?
She said: Yes. Then I asked her : Which days of the month
did he fast on? She replied: He did not select any specific
days to fast on." [Sahih Muslim, Sunan of Abu Dawud,
Tirmidhi, Ibn Maja and Musnad of Ahmad ibn Hanbal.] 2.
In his khutba, Br. Kaukab called on Muslims to make a new
start with the spiritual & physical detoxification provided
by long, hot, July fasts. Beware of the evil of the general
corruption of America which is seeping into Muslim commu
nities, he said. Prayers and fasting have renewed us. Now,
OBEY Allah & the messenger. Without obedience, the evils of
society will affect us and our families either marginally or
fully. The major evils are:
Heroin & other hard drugs.
Cigarettes and fast foods.
Gambling and TV propaganda.
Fornication and pornography.
Violence against women and children.
Br. Kaukab said: Allah ordered the community of Moses, pbuh,
to sacrifice its cow which they worshippped. Unless we
sacrifice our "baqarah" [cow] [title of longest sura], our
fasting will have gone in vain. Are we worshipping one of
these six cows? Slaughter it and worship Allah alone..
Continue the spirit of Ramadan with a few Sunnah fasts every
month, he said. The 6 fasts of Shawwal are extremely
important to maintain continuty.

This narrative is a good example of the validity of ONE
woman's witness. Here is one woman narrating from one woman
in a matter of religion, accepted by 5 collectors of Hadith.
A sumptuous brunch followed. Delicious and international!
Some of the worshippers of Allah stayed till Juma' came in
and were joined by others, including Arab brothers from
The juma khutba was given by an African American Muslim, Br.
Kalem, who emphasized that the khateeb standing at the
mimbar [pulpit] is representing the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh,
and we are like his Companions. So, he said, focus on the
imam, don't talk, turn off cell phones and don't be
distracted during the khutba. Da'wah should be part of our
daily lives, he said.
Sis. Ashira, the administrator of the masjid, organized both
the Eid program and the post-Juma get together.
Donated booklets about zikr, favorite prayers of the
Prophet, pbuh, sent by Asqfish, were distributed. Very nice
Yemeni researcher Rebuts President Obama's Claims of the
al-Qaida threat August 3 to 10.
At least 35 people have been killed in Yemen's Mareb
province by US drone strikes. These are presented as
al-Qaida militants who were a threat to the security of the
A rebuttal to these claims has been written by Abdul Razzaq
al-Jamil, a researcher for the Yemen Post newspaper of
August 10 when he was interviwed bt the Toronto Star.
According to the Yemen Post, he has access to senior
al-Qaida figures in Yemen. His rebuttal of President Obama's
claims is as follows:
The people killed in the drone strikes are civilians and
some are ordinary supporters of al-Qaida. None of them were
leaders at any level and certainly posed no threat to the
Al-Qaida in the Arabian Penisula [AQAP] is an autonomous
organization and does not need a phone call from Dr.
al-Zawahiri to carry out its activities. Thus Obama's claim
of an intercepted phone call is incorrect.
AQAP does not have the numbers or the resources to take
control of any major city. All it can do is to hold on to
the areas it already controls such as Mareb province.
[The editor of Yemen Post has written that the drones
constantnly hovering over Yemen are a greater threat to the
Yemeni people than AQAP.]
Coordinated Israeli-Egyptian air attacks on Islamic fighters
near Israeli borders.
On August 9 and 10, air strikes were carried out against
Islamic fighters trying to attack Israel. The strikes were
only ONE mile from the Israeli frontier. Egypt claims it did
it on its own but reports from Sinai indicate this was a
coordinated, joint operation with Israel. Five Islamics were
killed on August 9. The casualties on August 10 are not

August 7: Mujahideen finally captured Assad's helicopter air
base Minnig northeast of Aleppo from where helicopter
attacks were launched against Aleppo for the last one month.
The last Assad fortress on the base was blown up by an

Islamics have an unbroken corridor all the way to Turkey.
6 Villages in Latakia captured.
August 7. Islamic forces have captured 6 Alawite villages in
the mountains of Latakia. [Assad recaptured 2 of the
villages but with 175 Assad troops killed in the fighting,
it was a heavy price to pay.]
August 5: On the second day of fighting in the Jabal
al-Akrad mountain area of Latakia province, mujahideen made
a major breakthrough and captured more than 400 Alawite
gunmen. In the fighting, 32 of Assad's troops and 19
mujahideen were killed. The prisoners have been moved into
an area under secure control of the Free Syrian army.
Assad's Alawite troops had been shelling Sunni villages from
the mountain stronghold but they collapsed in front of the

BEIRUT — Human Rights Watch says the Syrian military is
firing ballistic missiles into populated areas where it is
battling rebels, killing hundreds of civilians.
The U.S.-based group said in a report released Monday that
it has investigated nine apparent missile attacks that
killed at least 215 people, half of them children, between
February and July.
HRW activists visited seven sites of the nine attacks. There
were no apparent military targets near the inspected sites,
the group said in a statement, calling on President Bashar
Assad to stop indiscriminate attacks.
Government officials could not immediately be reached for
comment. The military has repeatedly denied it is targeting
civilians during the 2-year conflict, saying its troops are
fighting "terrorists" hiding in civilian areas.

Jewish Leaders Drove Gay Marriage Changes, Says VP Biden.
The Associated Press
Vice President Joe Biden is praising Jewish leaders for
helping change American attitudes about gay marriage and
other issues. Biden says culture and arts change people's
attitudes. He cites social media and the old NBC TV series
"Will and Grace" as examples of what helped changed
attitudes on gay marriage. Biden says, quote, "Think -
behind of all that, I bet you 85 percent of those changes,
whether it's in Hollywood or social media, are a consequence
of Jewish leaders in the industry." Biden says the influence
is immense and that those changes have been for the good.

How to Introduce Hadith to People affected by Anti-Hadith
by Robert Solano [Jamaat al-Muslimeen Shoora leader, Texas.]
There is some dispute among Muslims regarding Hadiths. Some
say that we should ignore them.
Others say that how can we if they provide light and
guidance. The truth of the matter is that
some are not authentic. But we should "not throw out the
baby with the bath water," for many
of them are true Islam. This is the message we should convey
to those spanish speaking persons
that want to revert to Islam and ask "what is the Sunnah and
We find that Abu Al-'Abbas, Sal Ibn Sa'd As-Sa'idi (may
Allah be pleased with him), said to us in
a Hadith: A man came to the Prophet (pbuh) and stated: O
Menssenger of Allah, point out to me
an act that if done it will give me Allah's love and those
of people, He replied (spanish translation):
"No desees la vida mundanal y Dios te amará, y no desees lo
que la gente tenga, y la gente te amará."
Its a Good Hadith and it was transmitted by Ibn Majah and

Abuse of Momin Khawaja Shows Canada has Outdone USA in
hatred of Islam
Dear Prime Minister Stephen Harper of Canada:
I am angered by the shameful mistreatment of Islamic
prisoner Momin Khawaja in Canada's prisons and I urge you to
pay close attention to his conditions in prison.
This demonstrates built-in prejudice and unfair treatment
towards Muslims and the people of Arab origins mostly
covered by the term "terrorism."
The important points are
What evidence-based or
justifiable criteria is implied to deliver an exceptionally
harsh and unfair sentence to Momin Khawaja? The original
sentence of 10.5 yrs was increased to a life plus 24 years
consecutively to be served with 10 years for parole. The
final judgment lacked any evidence-based reasoning to
substantiate the conclusion except political and religious
Momin Khawaja was acquitted by the trial judge
of involvement in the London bomb plot. He has no criminal
record and never posed any threat or violence to anybody on
Momin was not considered for double credits
of the time served (almost 10 years) as it is applicable to
all inmates under the Canadian laws and justice system.
There were wide range of opinions and discussions amongst
the judges at the final Supreme Court hearing in June 2012,
questioning the previous unfair verdict of the Ontario
Appeal Court. But at the end, they all signed the document
full of injustice.
There is no balancing act between the
original sentence of 10.5 (ten and a half years sentence
with 5 years for parole) and unusually increased harsh
sentence to Life with 24 years to be served consecutively -
10 years for parole. This is clearly a travesty of justice.
Currently, M. Momin Khawaja is kept in a high security
prison where there is no provision/system to apply for
legally sanctioned parole after 10 years. This shows that
the Canadian authorities are denying his basic legal rights
Recently boiling water was thrown on him in prison and it
burned large parts of his body. Is this how Canada's prisons
This would not happen EVEN in America's prison system! I
strongly urge an impartial REVIEW of case / a retrial or to
free Momin Khawaja..

Poland The Local (Germany)
David Irving said on Wednesday he would push ahead with his
controversial trip to Germany, despite calls to ban him from
every hotel in Berlin. He told The Local he had been
"inundated with offers" of accommodation in the city since
the German Hotel Association said its members would not
allow him to stay. The British writer, who was banned from
Germany for ten years in 1993, said he would also take a
30-strong group on a tour of Poland's concentration camps as
part of the trip in September ... They also plan to go to
