Hadith of the Week
Hafsa said, 'We used to forbid our young
women to go out for the two 'Id prayers. A woman came and
stayed at the palace of Bani Khalaf and she narrated about
her sister whose husband took part in twelve holy battles
along with the Prophet and her sister was with her husband
in six (out of these twelve). She (the woman's sister) said,
"We used to treat the wounded, look after the patients and
once I asked the Prophet, 'Is there any harm for any of us
to stay at home if she doesn't have a veil?' He said, 'She
should cover herself with the veil of her companion and
should participate in the good deeds and in the religious
gathering of the Muslims.' When Um 'Atiya came I asked her
whether she had heard it from the Prophet. She replied,
"Yes. May my father be sacrificed for him (the Prophet)!
(Whenever she mentioned the Prophet she used to say, 'May my
father be sacrificed for him) I have heard the Prophet
saying, 'The unmarried young virgins and the mature girl who
stay often screened or the young unmarried virgins who often
stay screened and the menstruating women should come out and
participate in the good deeds as well as the religious
gathering of the faithful believers but the menstruating
women should keep away from the Musalla (praying place).' "
Hafsa asked Um 'Atiya surprisingly, "Do you say the
menstruating women?" She replied, "Doesn't a menstruating
woman attend 'Arafat (Hajj) and such and such (other

Iran-backed Shi'ite militias will try to retake Ramadi.
[Sources: AFP, Reuters and AP]
May 17: The Pentagon admitted that the capture of Ramadi's
central defenses over May 14-16 was not just a serious
setback for the US installed regime in Baghdad but a defeat
which could prove fundamental for the regime.
The Iranian defense minister rushed to Iraq today to see
what could be done to stop further Islamic advances.

ALL sources agree that the mujahideen whipped the Shi'ite,
US backed military. More than 500 Shi'ite troops, including
their "civilian" intelligence agents and spies, were killed
in the fighting.

Mohtram Kaukab Bhai, Salaam, Allah Ap Ku Khush Rakhey,
President Erdogan has now come up openly to show the true
colors of Turkish establishment that it stands for Islam. In
the present situation he is to galvanize the country as a
Muslim identity completely apart from the Kamalists. Kurdish
can play an important part in this process.
Erdogon's vision is quite clear from his youth time when in
a poem he compared: "Our Minarates are our cannons." He is
now crystal clear that the future of the country is totally
linked up with Islam. The Renaissance of Ummah very much
depends now on Turkey taking the lead in that direction.
This he wants to do by incarnating Turkey into a Muslim
State afresh and thus presenting her model role to the
secular Muslim world to follow her steps. Under his rule,
Turkey has reconstituted itself as the most developed Muslim
State while holding the banner of Islam in the
He is playing the part of a true Mujahid, perhaps, towards
the restoration of the lost Caliphate in due course as a
challenge to Uncle Sam's hegemony against the Islamic
Let us pray for his success. The future of Muslim world
rests in his success and his dream of youth may turn into a
reality soon, Insha Allah.
National Islamic Shoora of Jamaat al-Muslimeen
"Islam and Muslim Issues in America in this Age of Crisis."
High Quality Presentations by Islamic women.
Host: Imam Badi [North Carolina]
Ameer: Br. Kaukab Siddique [Pennsylvania]
Secretary General: Sis. Ashira [Maryland]
Deputy Ameer: Br. Robert Solano [Texas]
Adviser: Sheikh Shamim Siddiqui [New York]
On May 16, a ten-hour central committee session of Jamaat
al-Muslimeen known as Shoora was held in Greensboro, North
Imam Badi Ali's local team provided support services such as
halal meals and prayer arrangements. Imam Badi is working
with Muslim children on a large scale. Some of these
children participated in the shoora.
Br. Kaukab recited sura al-Balad, chapter 90 of the Qur'an,
and led the day long discussion in bits and parts with these
Palestine is our top issue. Zionism is a form of racism
[as Dr, Shabazz taught us.]
Political prisoners are central to our concerns, be it
the Blind Shaykh, Imam Jamil, Dr. Aafia or Imam Hasan in
Police brutality and the trauma of America's oppressed
people challenges our potential to do good.
The rights of women and gender equality were first
proclaimed in Islamic viewpoint by Jamaat al-Muslimeen, but
it should be done in a way now which avoids government
framework on the same issue.
America's Muslims have been sold out by groups with
Muslim names working for the government. We are reaching out
beyond the barriers these groups have set up and have impact
now across America's Muslim communities.
A good brother in England taught me: Write on the backs
of the hands of our children: 90:13 [Which says: FREE the
SLAVE from sura al-Balad.]
We condemn and oppose Israel and the occupation and
bombing of Muslim countries and we pray for the victory of
Islamic battle formations. We are peaceful, working within
the law, but uncompromising.
Here are some of the highlights of the shoora meeting:
Sis. Ashira Naim's presentation by power point and
eyewitness account of the Jamaat's feed the hungry program
in Ethiopia. Sister Ashira has returned after a THREE MONTH
stay in Ethiopia, a ground breaking effort by any Muslim
woman in the land of the first hijra by the Companions of
the Prophet, pbuh.
Sis. Kristi's power point presentation on "Prioritizing:
A believer's Obligation." The audience were spell bound by
this well organized and graphically attractive projection of
one of the most sensitive issues: Whom can you save and whom
should you save when tragedy strikes? Viewers photographed
the presentation and hopefully a seminar will be held on
Sis. Nadrat Siddique's research paper on the uprising in
Baltimore, chockfull of information about the hidden factors
in this city which caused the implosion against police
brutality. This should be a source paper for any meaningful
study of Baltimore in particular and police brutality in
general. Focused on local children, health issues,
disparities, disenfranchisement and Zionist
control/influence [and much more]
Highest award for activism in Baltimore:
Sis. Ayesha was awarded a plaque by Imam Badi in recognition
of her peaceful activism in Baltimore during the days of the
uprising. She was interviewed by numerous media outlets,
local and international. Thanks also go to her husband who
supported her in her endeavors.
Highest Level of Activism on the Internet:
Br. Robert Solano was recognized for his activism on the
Internet which has outdone most Internet entries in presence
and variety. Br. Solano is famous for his steady dawah and
gifting of Qur'ans in Spanish to the latino/latina
communities. He gives the message of Islam with a smile and
a sense of humor. His family, quite big and Hispanic, has
been steadily converting to Islam.
New York as a key city in the awakening of the
Br. Abu Talib was identified as a the most prolific
distributor of Islamic and anti-imperialist literature in
New York. His task is huge because of the tremendous issues
of race and class and police brutality facing New Yorkers.
Inshallah our brothers and sisters will work with him.
Two Illustrious Independent Islamic Leaders visited the
Imam Ali Siddiqui, internationally renowned preacher and
teacher of Islam, led the prayers and made du'as for the
community. He urged Muslims never to forget that the
spiritual connection with Allah and the love of Muhammad,
pbuh, are central to Islam. Muslims should take the message
of Islam to all faith communities and even to atheists. He
noted that when the attractions of DUNYA overtake us, the
best of us can change direction and forget our
Imam Khalil Abdur Rahman, international representative of
Imam Jamil Abdullah al-Amin, spoke with great confidence and
knowledge of the situation of Imam Jamil al-Amin who has now
been moved to a prison in Pennsylvania. Imam Khalil needs
our support for the noble cause of the famous imam who has
been put under duress during years of imprisonment. The
regime has tried to break him but he stands firm on Islam
and the Sunnah of Muhammad, pbuh, even though his health has
been ruined. Imam Khalil spoke from the heart with the power
of faith about the process through which Imam Jamil went
from radical activist and Black nationalist leader to the
most distinguished imam of America's Muslims.
UNO Toothless: UnIslamic Behavior of Malaysian & Indonesian
8000 Refugees Stuck on Boats
by Shaikh Hyder [Canada]
Note: Please contact Prof. Suleyman Kurter in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin to help Rohingya refugees.
By the Grace of Allah, mankind has made large advancement in
the production of food, housing, education, health care,
etc. During the period of Ottoman Empire people could travel
in small ships, and on the backs of camels, horses and mules
from one corner of earth to another without passport or fear
of death and loss of their properties.
Now Allah has given power and dominion of earth to Hindus,
Christians, Jews and Muslims. They have plenty of wealth,
power and land to take care of millions of people. Yet
people die in thousands crossing the Mediterranean every
year from Africa because stronger and wealthy among us are
more hungry for more and more wealth and power.
We humans don't recognize and follow the golden teachings of
Adam, Noah, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (may peace be upon
them all). Now two large prosperous Muslim countries are
turning away Rohingya Muslims from their shores to keep
their race happy and prosperous. These same Indonesians send
their mothers and daughters to Middle east to work as house
mates and many of them are raped and hanged.
Please read and fear Allah and His Punishment.

Appeal to World Community: Stop the Egypt's Tyrant
Oppressing Elected President Mursi.
LAHORE, May 16; Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator
Sirajul Haq and JI Secretary General, Liaqat Baloch, have
strongly condemned the death sentence announced to former
elected Egyptian President Dr Muhammad Mursi, and described
it as the murder of justice.
The JI leaders appealed to the world community to raise its
voice against the tyranny going on in Egypt under the garb
of trials and said that keeping silent on this gross
injustice would be tantamount to being a party to that. They
also urged the human rights bodies to take notice of the
mock trials going on in Egypt.
Islamic State Leader Abu Bakr Speaks: A Bad Day for Iranian
& Shi'ite Propagandists.
May 14: A 33-minute audio message from the Caliph Abu Bakr
al-Baghdadi al-Quraishi al-Hussaini appeared on various
jihad web sites around the world. BBC has summarized the
message as his authentic voice and that it is vibrant and
lively and certainly no incapacitated or sick person could
have spoken with such power for so long.
For weeks the Shia regime installed by the US in Iraq has
been claiming that the leader of the Islamic State had been
seriously injured in an air strike and subsequently died of
his injuries. Pro-Iranian groups picked up the Iraqi regimes
story and spread it around the world.
These rafidi Shia groups use several front organizations for
disinformation against the mujahideen, among them one Global
Research [which New Trend defined as neither Global nor
research]. Press TV comes in second with lies about the
mujahideen. Then there is a whole list of non-Muslim
propagandists, such as Cartalucci, Chodovsky, Fisk, Hersh
and Lamb who support the tyrant of Syria Bashar Assad. Today
their hopes were deflated.
Some of the points BBC has translated and/or summarized from
Abu Bakr's speech are as follows:
"Islam was never a religion of peace. Islam is the religion
of fighting. No-one should believe that the war that we are
waging is the war of the Islamic State. It is the war of all
Muslims, but the Islamic State is spearheading it. It is the
war of Muslims against infidels."
IS declared a "caliphate" over parts of Iraq and Syria in
The speaker in the message says: "There is no might nor
honor nor safety nor rights for you except in the shade of
The speaker also makes references to the recent Saudi-led
air campaign against Shia rebels in Yemen, which began on 26
March. He condemns the Saudi royal family and says the
conflict in Yemen will lead to the end of its rule.
An Iraqi interior ministry spokesman said in April that
Baghdadi had been seriously wounded in a coalition air
strike in March.
However, the Pentagon said it had no information on that,
and other reports last year of him being injured proved to
Now read this: The Shias were so emboldened by their claim
that they then made a second claim:
The Iraqi ministry of defence said on Wednesday, May 13,
that the second-in-command of IS, Abdul Rahman Mustafa
Mohammed, was killed in an undated coalition air strike on a
mosque in northern Iraq.
But the US said coalition planes had not attacked a

Child Trafficking Near Rhode Island Prison
by sis. Karin Friedemann [Boston]
"Wan a ride No way said Jill," read my daughter's
handwritten report on what happened that day when we went to
visit a dear friend at Wyatt Detention Center in Central
Falls, Rhode Island on May 11. While we were walking towards
the nearby playground, a car pulled over.
I was already having a lot of conflicts about dress before
we left Boston! I had to decide how to choose my battles. I
had a feeling the prison guards would give my friend a hard
time about her skirt. I almost took along a pair of pants
for her just in case. But that day reinforced my experience
that short skirts/shorts attract criminal elements towards
girls. My eldest daughter always dressed tomboy so nothing
like this ever happened to us ever before!
When I was 19 I was hitchhiking in shorts I had a bad
experience even though I had been traveling for 9 months
without incident, always wearing below the knee skirt. The
one day I wore shorts, I got propositioned as a prostitute
by an elderly man, then coerced into something because my
passport and belongings were locked in the trunk of a
gigantic milk truck.
My 19 year old friend looked very pretty and was probably
dressed appropriately for court, where she had been
observing in Boston as a Political Science student. Inspired
by her, my 8 year old wore a short plaid Catholic school
type short skirt. They did look smart. But you can also
imagine the pedophile point of view: Wow! young girls
looking hot walking down a road!
The predator attempted a kidnapping, repeatedly insisting to
the girls that they get in his car.
"His eyes were swearing," said my 8 year old, explaining
that his eyes were lying.
The teenager that had saved her life by saying "Absolutely
not!" to the predator, said that he "Looked like a druggie
but not disheveled. Probably high but not on weed. Maybe
drunk a little."
"What do you think he wanted?" I asked her.
"The kids," she answered. "He had two carseats."
While this was happening, the prison guard was explaining to
me that the reason they could not let my little one in with
me without a birth certificate was because they were having
a problem with child trafficking in the prison; People were
leaving with children after visits that were not theirs. But
clearly it is no safer outside. When I mentioned the
incident outside, I was told that the entire street is a
child trafficking zone. Earlier that day, the news reported
a similar incident.
The prison guards seemed aware of the situation outside but
not overly concerned, as if it was the other police's
responsibility. They had the camera footage but they
wouldn't show it to us.
Before this incident, I had walked around with my daughter
for two hours while my friend had her prison visit. We saw a
lot of beautiful birds. Cardinals, Black birds with yellow
beak and some red black and white bird. My daughter made me
do a prayer for a dead robin. We played in the playground a
long time. We found many wonderful surprises along the
Molly shouted ""I want to live here!" as we walked from the
prison toward the playground. She had started thinking this
is a magical land. The fresh orange, the wrapped cookie, the
shiny spoon, a bright penny. They were bait, I now realize!
Placed in the bramble to lure children.
Later I learned that Rhode Island is known for kidnapping
since they legalized prostitution four years ago. Legalizing
prostitution in theory is supposed to stabilize the women's
lives and grant access to health care. The state should have
taken a leading role in screening all these now legal
prostitutes. However, they allowed criminal elements to take
As a mother, it makes me wonder if I should keep my
daughters stunted in the house. If I let them walk to the
library alone, is somebody going to write me up? This week I
realized that however much I want to encourage my children's
independence, I also have to be hyper vigilant
