We oppose the objectification of women in the U.S., and
deplore their use as sex objects.
We deplore the desecration of the planet, whether by U.S.
armed forces (and their allies) using chemical weapons, big
corporations given free reign to dump toxins far and wide,
or by an oblivious public accustomed to living large and
bleeding the rest of the world of resources to sustain its

educational system, and the removal of, or--at the very
least, recognition of--its support for war, Zionism, racism,
We call for reparations for slaves' Afro descendants, and
deplore the withholding of reparations for 500 years of
suffering--even under a "Black" president--while Jews
receive reparations for five years of suffering.
We urge every Muslim to write to prisoners and to their
families, and to help the familiesof the incarcerated. They
should not be forgotten or marginalized. (For addresses of

We condemn the genocide against the people of Syria. We
urge the entire Muslim world to oppose Assad. People
fighting Assad deserve the support of the Muslim ummah.
We urge all Muslims to oppose Israel, which Muslims do
not consider a legitimate entity.

desecration of monuments in Mali, withthe awareness that the
U.S. and Israel are masters of propaganda.
We urge the recognition and honoring of Muslim women
activists, leaders, and scholars across the Muslim world--by
the world community. Such women have done far more than
Malala, and are worthy of having the U.N. name a day after
: Syria. Assad Forced to release Muslim Women hostages.
On October 24, Assad was forced to release 61 Muslim women.
It became possible because al-Nusra mujahideen captured 9
Hizbullah fighters who had joined Assad's forces attacking
Aleppo. Assad's Alawite gangsters have been locking up
Muslim women who wear hijab and are thus suspected by Assad
of siding with the mujahideen. These are random arrests and
the women would have stayed indefinitely in prison if the
Hizbullah fighters had not been captured. These Shi'a
fighters from Lebanon are so dear to Assad that he agreed to
release the women for the Shi'as.
Also, on October 23, Islamic fighters blew up the gas
pipeline in Damascus. The explosion was huge and took the
shape of a fireball which could be seen for miles. Assad's
repair crews are busy but electricity has been out in most
of the fancy Damascus areas where Alawites supporting Assad

October 25, Iran's border security forces in the Saravan
area of eastern Iran, near Pakistan, fell into an ambush by
Jaish al-Adl. At least 14 Iranian troops were killed. Jaish
al-Adl said on its web site that the attack was in response
to a massacre carried out by Iran's Quds force in Syria.
The next day Iran hanged 16 Sunnis in a prison in Zahedan to
take revenge for the attack although they had nothing to do
with the border attack. [BBC & Fars.]

On October 25, Boko Haram mujahideen raided the town of
Damaturu in Yobe state. Military response took one hour.
Gunfights went on for several hours. The islamic fighters
took away hospital supplies and drove away in ambulances.
Scores of troops were killed. Meanwhile in neighboring
Borno state, Nigerian military is killing civilians at
random accusing them of being "Boko Haram." At least 75
people have been killed by the military [allegedly the
military is funded and armed by Israel and the US.]
Breaking News #4: Bangladesh: Backlash Against Nobel Prize
Winner supporting Homosexuality.
The founder of Grameen bank, Muhammad Yunus, personal friend
of Bill and Hillary Clinton, awarded the Nobel Prize by the
Zionists, finds himself in hot water after reports came out
that he supported homosexuality. He had in fact, with three
other nobel prize winners, signed a statement against the
prosecution of homosexuals in the eastern African country of
Bangladeshis want him expelled from their country. The
backlash is so strong that the government known for its
ant-Islam policies decided to join the public outrage
against Yunus. He is being supported by Taslima Nasrin whose
attack on Islamic values led to similar outrage and her
exile to India. [Source AFP]
[Homosexuality is condemned by the Qur'an. President Obama
and the entire Zionist lobby supports it. Thus it is seen as
an aspect of cultural imperialism in the Islamic

ABC INTERVIEW WITH MUSLIM YOUNG WOMEN | EDUCATION | MALALA

Zulhijja 18 was the anniversary of Usman, r.a., the third
greatest male Companion of the Prophet, pbuh, and third
Caliph of Islam, after Abu Bakr, r.a., and Umar, r.a. .
During his caliphate, his commander Muawiyya, r.a.,
destroyed the COMBINED FLEET of the Roman empire in one day.
Muhammad, pbuh, loved Usman, r.a., so much that he arranged
the marriage of his own daughter, Ruqayya, r.a.to him. Owing
to participation in the great struggle against oppression,
she did hijra with him and died. Then the Prophet, pbuh,
married his second daughter to Usman, r.a.
Usman, r.a., compiled the Qur'an we have today, with the
participation of the entire Muslim community. Later,
sectarians attacked and murdered him. He died with the
Qur'an he had compiled in his hand.
Br. Noori has written a tribute to Usman, r.a., from hadith
literature. This is only for Muslim readers. Please scroll

OBSERVATIONS OF MUSLIM DELEGATIONS

in the light of the narrations of the uprooted
It was a one-sided attack by pro-BJP Jats, Almost no
other Hindu community participated in the carnage.
The carnage took place only in villages where Muslims are
in a small minority.
The carnage was pre-planned. Many meetings and three
"mahapanchayats" were held before the carnage started. The
so-called "eve-teasing" angle has now been proved false - it
all started with a collision of motorcycles which was
exploited by people who were waiting for a spark.
Police were helping and abetting the rioters before,
during and after the carnage. Arms and other defence objects
like ballams, gadansas and knives were collected by the
police from Muslim homes BEFORE the carnage while arms were
brought in from outside and distributed among the
SHO of Phugana (Omvir Sirohi), where it all started, gave
the Hindus two hours from 8 am to 10 am on 8 September 2013
to do their job to teach a lesson to the Muslims.
Some Muslims, especially the elderly and children, are
still trapped in some villages but police is not ready to
bring them to safety. Denied of food and water, they may die
soon if not already killed by the rioters.
Cattle in large numbers have either been looted or are
left unattended in many abandoned homes without food and
water and according to reports they are dying out of thirst
and hunger if not already looted by the rioters.
People fled their villages at a notice of just minutes,
hence they came out in the clothes they were wearing. They
need clothes and bedding most.
Govt is supplying inadequate quantities of ration and
liquid milk as well as some medical help at places where a
bulk of the uprooted people are staying but not where they
are staying in small numbers or in homes of villagers or
The uprooted urgently need items which are not provided
by the govt like clothes, bedding, soap, dried milk, baby
food, durries, chadars, utensils, etc.
Relief should be provided to all who have been forced to
flee their homes until they are repatriated or a solution is
found to resettle them somewhere else.
Many of uprooted people have farmlands where crops are
ready to be harvested. These will either be stolen or lost
if people are not given security to go there and harvest
Most homes have been burnt down with corpses inside.
Young girls have been abducted and there is no attempt
by the police to recover them.
We did not find a single man or woman ready to return
ever to their abandoned villages. Even uprooted people of
"higher castes" like Mulla [Muslim] Jats are not ready to
return to their villages. They want to start life afresh at
other places. They should be encouraged to return to their
homes and adequate security in the form of permanent police
pickets should be posted there until normalcy returns
Muslims of the area have come out honourably to help
these uprooted people, thousands are lodged in homes in
Muslim-dominated villages, others are housed in madrasahs,
mosques and Eidgahs and other places.
Hindus too have come forward to prevent the violence and
to help the victims as seen in Kandhla town were some 7500
uprooted people are sheltered in the Eidgah. The role of
Kandhla S.P. (Harish Chandra Johsi) has been honourable and
A proper documentation of all the uprooted is necessary
at the earliest so that compensation and rehabilitation are
done without injustice to any.
Adequate help should be given to all to rebuild their
destroyed/burnt houses or to build new houses at other
places of their choice.
Adequate compensation should be given to all the
affected by the carnage for loss of life, injury, houses
looted and burnt, and for cattle and crops lost.
FIRs should be filed individually and collectively in
all cases of murder, attack, arson, loot, forced eviction,
The police is not allowing any photography of the burnt
houses in the affected villages. When it escorted some of
the victims back to their homes to retrieve some of their
belongings, police did not allow them to photograph the
burnt homes some which were still smouldering. Police even
collected their mobile phones in advance so that no
photograph could be taken. Police in Kandhla were ready to
provide some of us escort to go to some affected villages
with the condition that we will not take any photographs. We
think that the proofs will soon be destroyed. Therefore,
documentation should include still and video photography of
the looted and burnt homes.
The Son in Law of Muhammad, pbuh.

Polish Town Removes Statue Recalling Rape of Millions of
German Women by Soviet Soldiers

An Orange County security guard accused of planning to
become an Al Qaeda operative had been enlisted to train
terrorist fighters for an ambush on coalition forces in a
planned December attack, federal prosecutors said in court
Sinh Vinh Ngo Nguyen, 24, was arrested this month boarding a
Mexico-bound bus in Santa Ana. Investigators allege he was
heading to Mexico City, with plans to fly to Pakistan and
train terrorist fighters.
His trial is scheduled for Dec. 3 in federal court in Santa
Nguyen is charged with attempting to provide material
support - "namely himself," the indictment says - to the
terrorist group. He also is accused of lying on a passport
application, making false statements about his name, his
date of birth, his place of birth and other information.
He was traveling under the name Hasan Abu Omar Ghannoum when
arrested, authorities said.
During a hearing Monday, Nguyen was attentive and had
trimmed the shoulder-length hair and thick beard he wore in
his initial court appearance. He has pleaded not guilty.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Judith Heinz said that Nguyen
confessed to federal agents during a 90-minute interview
about his plans after agreeing to waive his Miranda
"At that time he talked about his activities in Syria and
also admitted his intent to train Al Qaeda fighters to
execute an ambush against coalition forces," Heinz said.
U.S. Federal Judge John F. Walter questioned whether Nguyen,
who was rejected from enlisting with the U.S. military
because of a hearing condition, had the skills and ability
to train 30 Al Qaeda foot soldiers, as alleged.
Nguyen owned two guns, trained at shooting ranges and had a
notebook with detailed instructions on how to train
shooters, Heinz said.
Prosecutors are expected to present hours of audio
recordings and Facebook posts in which Nguyen allegedly
admits to killing at least one person during a five-month
trip to Syria late last year, Heinz said.
Nguyen admitted to going to Lebanon and Syria for the
purpose of "help[ing] the Free Syrian Army," according to
He initially planned on flying to Pakistan, faking his own
death and applying for a Pakistan passport, according to
court documents. However, an undercover FBI agent reportedly
posing as an Al Qaeda recruiter told him he could apply for
a fake passport instead.
The federal agent gave Nguyen an application and said
sympathetic "brothers" within the U.S. government would
issue the passport, Heinz said. Nguyen was carrying that
passport when he was arrested Oct. 11, authorities said.
Nguyen also had $1,850 in Syrian currency when he was
arrested, Heinz said. Agents reported finding three swords
and a copy of Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" at the Garden Grove
home he shared with his family.
A friend who attended the hearing said Nguyen never spoke to
him about taking a trip to Syria.
"He talked about that with his other friends, I just know he
left without us knowing," said Robert Pham. "Of course we
were surprised, that's why we're here to know what

Tribute compiled by Br. Noori.
On the 18th of Zul Hijjah, 35th year of the Hijrah, the
companion of our beloved Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa
Sallam), Sayyiduna Uthman Al-Ghani (Radi Allahu Anhu) was
ruthlessly martyred. He was the third Khalifah (caliph)
amongst those known as the Khulafah al-Rashideen. His
patronymic (Kunyah) is Abu Amr. He is also known as
Zun-Nurayn (i.e. Possessor of two Lights), because the Noble
Prophet gave two of his honorable daughters' hands in
marriage one after the other to the Honorable Uthman
Al-Ghani (Radi Allahu Anhu).
He embraced Islam at the very advent . He is also known as
"Sahib al-Hijratayn" (the one who migrated twice) because
firstly he migrated to Habshah (Ethiopia) and then to
Ameer al-Mu'mineen, Sayyiduna Uthman Al-Ghani (Radi Allahu
Anhu) was an ardent follower of the Beloved Prophet
(SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam). He was, in fact, the
embodiment of love of the Holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa
Sallam). Absolute submission to the Sunnah manifests in his
words and deeds.
One day Sayyiduna Uthman Al-Ghani (Radi Allahu Anhu) sat
by the entrance of the Masjid and asked for the meat of the
limb of goat and consumed it. He, then, offered Salah
without redoing the Wudu and explained that the Noble
Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) also consumed the same
sitting on the same place, and did in the same way. [Musnad
Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal, Vol. 1, Page 137, Hadith 441]
Once Sayyiduna Uthman Al-Ghani (Radi Allahu Anhu) smiled
whilst performing Wudu. The people asked the reason, to
which he replied, "Once I saw that the Holy Prophet
(SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) smiled having performed Wudu
at this very place." [Musnad Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal, Vol. 1,
Page 130, Hadith 415]
Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah (Radi Allahu Anhu) narrates,
"Uthman bought Jannah twice from the Prophet. Firstly, on
day of 'The Well of Ruma' and secondly, when the Muslims
were in a very poor state." [Al-Mustadrak li al-Hakim, Vol.
3, Page 107; Tarikh Dimashq al-Kabir, Vol. 41, Page 49;
Al-Kamil li Ibn Adi, Vol. 2, Page 464]
When the migrants came to the blessed city of Madina
Munawwarah, they did not like the taste of the water. A man
from the tribe of Bani Ghaffar possessed a well, named Ruma,
full of sweet water. He used to sell this water to the
people. The Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) asked him
if he would sell his well for a spring in paradise. The man
replied, "O Prophet of Allah! This is my only income."
Hearing this, Syyiduna Uthman (Radi Allahu Anhu) came and
bought the well for thirty-one thousand. He then came to the
Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and asked, "Will I be
able to get the spring of Paradise like you said, if i w
ould buy the well from him?" The Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi
wa Sallam) said, "Yes." Thus, Sayyiduna Uthman (Radi Allahu
Anhu) stated, "I have bought the well of Ruma and given it
to the Muslims." [Al-Mu'jam al-Kabir, Vol. 2, Page 41-42,
Hadith 1226; Tarikh Dimashq al-Kabir, Vol. 41, Page 49; Kanz
al-Ummal, , Vol. 13, Page 35-36, Hadith 36183]
When the Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) was
preparing for the battle of Tabuk, the Muslims were in needy
of some financial support. At this moment the Prophet
(SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) sought the help of Sayyiduna
Uthman Radi Allahu Anhu. Hadrat Uthman (Radi Allahu Anhu)
gave 10,000 Dinars, thereafter the Prophet said, "O Uthman!
May Allah forgive your outer and inner mistakes and forgive
all that which you commit till the Day of Judgement. Uthman
can do whatever he wills." [Kanz al-Ummal, Vol. 13, Page 38,
Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Umar (Radi Allahu Anhuma) has
stated that Uthman bin Affan's (Radi Allahu Anhu) absence
from the battle of Badr was because the daughter of the
Prophet of Allah (Ruqayyah), who was his wife, fell ill.
Allah's Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said to him,
"You will receive the same reward and share (of the booty)
as anyone of those who participated in the battle of Badr
(if you stay with her)." [Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 1, Page
523; Musnad Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Vol. 2, Page 101; Jaami'
Tirmidhi, Vol. 5, Page 395, Hadith 3726]
This was the specialty of Sayyiduna Uthman (Radi Allahu
Anhu) as whosoever does not attend the battle does not get
his share of the booty. Hadrat Abdullah bin Umar (Radi
Allahu Anhuma) has said, "The Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa
Sallam) allocated for him his share and did not do so for
anyone else who was absent." [Sunan Abi Dawud, Vol. 2, Page
Sayyiduna Shurhabil bin Muslim (Radi Allahu Anhu) has
reported, "Ameer al-Mu'mineen, Sayyiduna Uthman Al-Ghani
(Radi Allahu Anhu) would feed the people with lavish food,
and he himself would go home and remain contented with
vinegar and olive only." [Az-Zuhd lil Imam Ahmad, Page 155,
He was known for his modesty, generosity and braveness.
The beloved Messenger of Allah (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam)
said, "Should I not show modesty to one whom even the Angels
show modesty." [Sahih Muslim, Hadith 2402]
Ameer al-Mu'mineen, Sayyiduna Uthman al-Ghani (Radi Allahu
Anhu) has said, 'The hand by which I committed Bay'ah
(spiritual bond) in the blessed hands of the Most Noble
Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam), I have never touched
my genital organ with that (i.e. right hand) thereafter.'
[Az-Zuhd lil Imam Ahmad, Page 155, Hadith 685]
Sayyiduna Uthman al-Ghani (Radi Allahu Anhu) has said, "I
swear by Allah! I never committed fornication during the
pre-Islamic era of ignorance nor have I committed it after
embracing Islam." [Sunan Ibn Majah, Vol. 1, Page 99]
Sayyiduna Hasan al-Basri (Radi Allahu Anhu) has mentioned
explaining the extreme modesty of Ameer al-Mu'mineen,
Sayyiduna Uthman al-Ghani (Radi Allahu Anhu), "If he had
been in some room with the door properly shut, even then he
would not put off his clothes for taking the bath nor would
he straighten his back out of modesty." [Hilyat al-Awliya,
Vol. 1, Page 94, Hadith 159]
Ameer al-Mu'mineen, Sayyiduna Uthman al-Ghani (Radi Allahu
Anhu) would always observe Nafl (supererogatory) Fasts.
Having taken rest during the initial part of the night, he
would stand vigil (for worship) for the rest of the night.
[Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Vol. 2, Page 173]
Whenever Ameer al-Mu'mineen, Sayyiduna Uthman al-Ghani
(Radi Allahu Anhu) would get up for offering the Salah of
Tahajjud at night, he would himself arrange water for
performing the Wudu. When it was asked, 'Why do you bother
yourself; let your servant do it for you', He replied, "No,
the night is theirs; it is for their rest." [Ibn Asakir,
Vol. 39, Page 236]
Sayyiduna 'Abdullah bin 'Umar (Radi Allahu Anhuma) has
reported that the beloved Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa
Sallam) prophesized a heretical event and informed Sayyiduna
Uthman Al-Ghani (Radi Allahu Anhu) that he will be wickedly
martyred in that. [Tirmidhi, Vol. 5, Page 395, Hadith
Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Salam (Radi Allahu Anhu) has
stated: When the rebels had laid siege to the sanctified
house of Uthman Al-Ghani (Radi Allahu Anhu) even a single
drop of water was not allowed to supply his blessed home.
Sayyiduna Uthman Al-Ghani would feel restless due to severe
thirst. He was observing fast during the day and I went to
see him. He looked at me and said, 'O! Abdullah bin Salam, I
beheld the Noble Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam)
through this skylight. The Most Merciful Prophet (SallAllahu
Alayhi wa Sallam) said in a very sympathetic manner, 'O
Uthman! These people have made you restless by thirst b
locking the water?' I respectfully replied, 'Yes.' So, the
Noble Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) immediately
lowered a bucket towards me that was filled with water. I
quenched my thirst. I can still feel the soothing effect of
that water between both of my breasts and both of my
The Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) then said, 'O
Uthman! If you wish, I'll help you against these people; or
if you like you may come to me and break your fast in my
company.' I respectfully replied, 'Ya RasoolAllah
(SallAllahu Alayka wa Sallam); breaking my fast in your
graceful court is dearer to me.' Sayyiduna Abdullah bin
Salam stated that he returned that day and Sayyiduna Uthman
was martyred on that same day by the rebels. [Kitab
al-Manamat, Vol. 3, Page 74, Hadith 109]
Imam Jalal al-Din Suyuti (Alayhir Rahmah) has narrated
that Shaykh Ibn Batish (Alayhir Rahmah) deduced that this
event (of the sighting of the Noble Prophet SallAllahu
Alayhi wa Sallam) was not a dream, rather it took place
whilst awake. [Al-Hawi lil Fatawi, Vol. 1, Page 151]
Sayyiduna 'Adi bin Hatim has stated that on the day when
Sayyiduna Uthman Al-Ghani (Radi Allahu Anhu) was martyred, I

Uthman Al-Ghani the glad tidings of comfort and fragrance;
tell him the delightful news about meeting with Rab (Azza wa
Jal). Who is not displeased; also give him the glad tidings

Shaykh 'Adi bin Hatim has further stated that he looked
around, but he did not see anyone. [Ibn Asakir, Vol. 37,
Page 355; Shawahid al-Nubuwwah, Page 209]
It has been reported that some of the close companions of
Uthman Al-Ghani (Radi Allahu Anhu) took his body to
Jannat-ul-Baqi' at night taking advantage of the darkness.
They were digging the grave when suddenly a large number of
riders entered Jannat-ul-Baqi'. The devotees got frightened.
The riders said loudly, 'Do not fear; we are here to take
part in his burial.' Hearing this, people's fear abated and
Sayyiduna Uthman Al-Ghani (Radi Allahu Anhu) was buried in
peace. After returning from the graveyard the Sahaba
al-Kiram (Alayhim ar-Ridwan) swore to the people that the
riders were in fact angels. [Shawahid al-Nabuwwah, Page
