Hadith of the Week
A woman traveling alone for a good cause, seeking men's help
to search for her husband.
Comment by Br. Kaukab Siddique.
There is a long hadith narrative about Umm Hakim, the wife
of Ikrima, son of Abu Jahal, the worst enemy of Islam. .
After the Islamic victory at Makka, Ikrima, who had fought
on the battlefield against Islam, fled thinking that as was
the norm before Islam, he would be killed. His wife who had
embraced Islam, knew of the Prophet's, pbuh, abundance of
forgiveness. Umm Hakim started on a search for her husband,
travelling from village to village, till she reached Yemen
where she found him. She persuaded him to come to back to
Makka with her. The Prophet, pbuh, was not only pleased with
her long journey, he was elated that Ikrima had returned
This is the briefest hadith on this subject which highlights
the woman's right to travel alone, and how happy was the
Prophet, pbuh, that Ikrima came back with her:
"Yahya related to me from Malik from Ibn Shihab that Umm
Hakim bint al-Harith ibn Hisham who was the wife of Ikrima
ibn Abi Jahl became muslim on the day of the conquest of
Makka, and her husband Ikrima fled from Islam as far as the
Yemen. Umm Hakim set out after him until she came to him in
the Yemen and she called him to Islam, and he became muslim.
He went to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and
grant him peace, in the year of the conquest. When the
Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace,
saw him, he rushed to him in joy and did not bother to put
on his cloak until he had made the pledge with him. They
were confirmed in their marriage. Malik said, "If a man
becomes muslim before his wife, a separation occurs between
them when he presents Islam to her and she does not become
muslim, because Allah, the Blessed, the Exalted, said in His
Book, 'Do not hold fast to the ties of women who are
(Muwatta of Imam Malik: Book #28, Hadith #28 20.46)

the Viewpoint of the Ummah of Islam in USA
Palestine is central to the struggle of the Muslims of
America. The Zionists have American institutions in a

Hollywood or Military .
We hail the peaceful resistance of the people of

we condemn police brutalities which have become endemic
we as Muslims stand with the oppressed people of
Oppression and exploitation of women Is condemned by
Islam. We urge Muslims to oppose objectification of women
and the use of their bodies on the media and in sales and
Homosexuality was opposed by all the messengers of God.
Zionist support for Homosex indicates a planned
legitimization of indecency and perversion.
The exploitation of Mexican and other central American
labor is a disgrace to a modern state. We urge the rights of
education, security and proper wages to all immigrants, be
they legal or undocumented.
Political prisoners should not be treated as criminals.
Opposition to the power structure should not be treated as
Muslims who want to go overseas to fight tyrants and
dictators should not be treated as terrorists.
Disinformation about Islam and Muslims has become
commonplace and an every day affair on Fox tv and to a
lesser degree on other outlets. Standards of accuracy should
be set . Muslims should have a right of reply as they are
the main targets of fox and others.
We call for boycott of businesses which support Israel
directly or indirectly as well as businesses which condone
police brutality in America.
US air strikes in Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen and
Pakistan are violations of International and Islamic Law and

Pakistani military's operations in North Waziristan and
other areas of Pakistan are genocidal. Entire populations
are expelled to provide free fire zones for the
Bangladesh has terrorized innocent and peaceful Islamic
scholars. Some of them have been sentenced to death, others
imprisoned. Muslim students have been attacked and killed in
the hundreds by military and police forces.
Egypt is in the claws of a military and police tyranny
backed by Saudi Arabia, the Emirates and the western powers.
The most extreme violation of the rights of the Egyptian
people is the arrest of the elected President of Egypt and
the sentence of death imposed on him by a bogus court. We
urge that he be released to restore sanity to the Egyptian

after day, which has killed more than 2,000 people, leaving
6,000 injured. We urge political negotiation and an end to
all violence including that by the Houthis.
Muslim lands of Kashmir and Chechnia are under heavy
occupation by military forces of India in Kashmir and Russia
in Chechnia. Occupation is not the solution.
Self-determination is the answer.
The Rohingya Muslim have been oppressed and decimated in
large numbers by the oppressive Buddhism of Burma. We urge
Bangladesh, Indonesia and Malaysia to take in these helpless
people. We hail Gambia's offer in this matter.
We urge the government of India to stop the oppression of
women, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs and Dalits. The mosques
India has demolished should be restored.
The regime of Bashar Assad has committed horrific crimes
against the people of Syria. We urge the unity of the Muslim
world to topple the tyrant and his regime.
We hail President Erdogan's and Turkey's steady movement
to affirm Islam as a central value. We pray that Erdogan
will move forward to liberate Palestine.
We can see that Africa is in tremendous upheaval. The
presence of French military forces in Mali, Niger and
Central African Republic are sources of ongoing conflict and
repression of the masses. All colonial forces should go back

Ireland: Stronghold of Christianity for centuries
Final Defeat for Christianity? Ireland Votes for Homosexual
DUBLIN (AP) -- Irish voters have resoundingly backed
amending the constitution to legalize gay marriage, leaders
on both sides of the Irish referendum declared Saturday
after the world's first national vote on the issue.
As the official ballot counting continued, the only question
appeared to be how large the "yes" margin of victory from
Friday's vote would be. Analysts said the "yes" support was
likely to exceed 60 percent nationally when official results
are announced later Saturday.
Gay couples hugged and kissed each other amid scenes of
jubilation at counting centers and at the official results
center in Dublin Castle, whose cobblestoned central square
was opened so thousands of revelers could sit in the
sunshine and watch the results live on big-screen

"We're the first country in the world to enshrine marriage
equality in our constitution and do so by popular mandate.
That makes us a beacon, a light to the rest of the world, of
liberty and equality. So it's a very proud day to be Irish,"
said Leo Varadkar, a Cabinet minister who came out as gay at
the start of a government-led effort to amend Ireland's
conservative Catholic constitution.
"People from the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender) community in Ireland are a minority. But with
our parents, our families, or friends and co-workers and
colleagues, we're a majority," said Varadkar, who watched
the votes being tabulated at the County Dublin ballot
"For me it wasn't just a referendum. It was more like a
social revolution," he said.
In the first official result, the Dublin North West
constituency voted 70.4 percent "yes" to gay marriage. But
the outcome was already beyond dispute as observers,
permitted to watch the paper ballots being counted at all
election centers, offered precise tallies giving the "yes"
side an unassailable nationwide lead.
Michael Barron and Jaime Nanci, a gay couple legally married
in South Africa five years ago, celebrated with friends at
the Dublin City counting center as the reality sank in that,
once Ireland's parliament passes the complementary
legislation, their foreign marriage will be recognized in
"Oh.My.God! We're actually Married now!" Nanci tweeted to
his spouse and the world, part of a cavalcade of tweets from
Ireland tagged (hash)LandslideOfLove.
Political analysts who have covered Irish referendums for
decades agreed that Saturday's emerging landslide marked a
stunning generational shift from the 1980s, when voters
still firmly backed Catholic Church teachings and
overwhelmingly voted against abortion and divorce.
"We're in a new country," said political analyst Sean
Donnelly, who called the result "a tidal wave" that has
produced pro-gay marriage majorities in even the most
traditionally conservative rural corners of Ireland.
"I'm of a different generation," said the gray-haired
Donnelly, who has covered Irish politics since the 1970s.
"When I was reared up, the church was all powerful and the
word 'gay' wasn't even in use in those days. How things have
moved from my childhood to now. It's been a massive change
for a conservative country."
Ireland's deputy prime minister, Labour Party leader Joan
Burton, said Ireland was becoming "a rainbow nation with a
huge amount of diversity." She said while campaigning door
to door, she met older gay people who described how society
made them "live in a shadow and apart," and younger voters
who were keen to ensure that Irish homosexuals live "as free
citizens in a free republic."
The "yes" side ran a creative, compelling campaign that
harnessed the power of social media to mobilize young
voters, tens of thousands of whom voted for the first time
Friday. The vote came five years after parliament approved
marriage-style civil partnerships for gay couples.
Those seeking a "no" outcome described their defeat as
almost inevitable, given that all of Ireland's political
parties and most politicians backed the legalization of
David Quinn, leader of the Catholic think tank Iona
Institute, said he was troubled by the fact that no
political party backed the "no" cause.
"We helped to provide a voice to the hundreds of thousands
of Irish people who did vote no. The fact that no political
party supported them must be a concern from a democratic
point of view," he said.
Fianna Fail party leader Michael Martin, a Cork politician
whose opposition party is traditionally closest to the
Catholic Church, said he couldn't in good conscience back
the anti-gay marriage side because "it's simply wrong in the
21st century to oppress people because of their
Some in Martin's party - the perennial heavyweight in Irish
politics but decimated since its ouster from power following
Ireland's 2010 international bailout - did privately oppose
the amendment, but only one spoke out in favor of the "no"
John Lyons, one of just four openly gay lawmakers in the
166-member parliament, waved the rainbow flag of the Gay
Pride movement in the Dublin City counting center and cried
a few tears of joy. He paid special credit to the
mobilization of younger voters, many of whom traveled home
from work or studies abroad to vote.
"Most of the young people I canvassed with have never
knocked on a door in their lives," Lyons said. "This says
something about modern Ireland. Let's never underestimate
the electorate or what they think.
A Strategy of Engagement: Education
Highlights of Khutbah delivered by Imam Ali Siddiqui at
Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen, Baltimore, Maryland on May 22,
Just recapping what we have already discussed. As I
mentioned in my first Khutbah in this series, in the
inner cities people live in a very dire condition. As we
walk, drive, ride a bus, or ride a bike through the, these
communities or around our masjids is no exception. As
Muslims, it's our duty to uplift our brothers and sisters in
humanity. However, we cannot do much as an outsider! For
that reason we shall develop a strategy: A Strategy of
Engagement. This 8-Step Strategy consists of Propagation
(Tabligh), Invitation (Da'wa), Education (Ta'leem),
Organization (Tanzeem), Cooperation (Ta'wun),
Action/Struggle (Jihad 'E-maa-run, Reconstruction), Sabr
(Struggle, hope, steadfastness, perseverance, consistency),
and Victory, Celebration, and Rest.
Last month, I already talked about first two steps:
Propagation (Tabligh) and Invitation (Da'wa).
We shall remember the message of Islam is for everyone;
however, Allah will guide whoever Allah pleases. Islam is
the message of hope for a better life in Dunya, this world,
and a promise of place in
Jannah-tul-Firdous. Promise of an eternal Good Life in the
Best Place in the Universe in the company of best looking
and Pure Spouses
We shall take the Message to our neighbors: "(Do good to)
the neighbors near to you, the neighbor farther away, the
companion at your side, the traveler ... Q 4:36". Whoever
are our neighbors around our masjid, our homes, around our
businesses, and even when we travel.
Think! What is the best thing we could do for our Neighbors?
No less than give them the Good News of a place in Paradise.
Insha-Allah, today, I will talk about the third step,
Education (Ta'leem), its importance, its obligation, and its
reward. When someone accepts Islam, declared Shahada,
educating the new in Islam shall be our first priority.
3. Education (Ta'leem)
Read & Write is the First Commandment of Allah:
‒ "Read in the name of Your Lord Who created: Created
a human being from a clot. Read and Your
Lord is most Honorable. Who taught (to write) with the pen,
taught human being what he knew
not." Q 96:1-5
‒ Education is very important: Knowing our purpose of
our creation and purpose in life.
Honor with Education
Allah gives honor, respect dignity with knowledge:
"Allah will exalt those of you who believe and those
who are given knowledge to degrees." Q 58:11
"And say (O Muhammad), O My Lord! Increase me in
knowledge." Q 20:114
"And whoever is given knowledge is given indeed
abundant wealth." Q 2:269
Importance of Education
Knowledge follows Faith, as it is evident in Sahih
Bukhari by its arrangement of Hadith.
The first verses (Q 96:1-5) revealed to Prophet
(saw) do not only stress Reading and writing but also
speak of Lord of Honor in this connection that human being
can attain honor through knowledge.
Allah praises knowledge with words like:
لِّلْعَا¤ِمِينَ , Yatazakkarun,
those who Know, those who ponder, those who meditate
Allah in Quran speaks of knowledge as a great
There is great importance on seeking knowledge, and
Allah addresses with title of honor like 'Alim,
Mufakkir, 'Aquil, and many other such titles in Quran.
Prophet Muhammad (saw) emphasized the need to seek Knowledge
upon believing men and women
under all odds like traveling to far away and distant
places. Pursuit of knowledge is in the path of Allah:
"Seeking Knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim."
"...the more excellent of the in Islam when they
attain knowledge." M-Msh. 2:1
'The word of wisdom is the lost property of the
believer..." Tr. 39:19
"Learned ones are the heirs of the prophets (as)." B
"The one who goes in search of Knowledge is in the
Path of Allah until his/her return." Tr. 39:2
"Knowledge is maintained only through teaching." B
It is incumbent upon us to organize an Educational Program
for those who enter into Islam to help them
grow in knowledge and Islam. Through knowledge we become
Basic education of Islam - Introduction to Islam, Belief
and 5-Pillars, Islamic Hygiene, Introduction to
Adab and Akhlaq, Special Classes as needed, and Skills
needed for the projects.
Intermediate Studies - On going program including Quran
(selected passages of Quran and Hadith).
Enlightenment Program - It will be discussed later.
Methods of Education
Mentorship - Assign a responsible and considerate
person as Mentor after Shahada
Self-Study - Prepare syllabus and identify resource
material, and prepare a study schedule with
the new Muslim
Mix Program - Class room and self-study
Co-operative Learning - A small group of 6 New
Muslims studying together using a Syllabus and
Resource Material, taking turn preparing and teaching.
Class Room - Formal Class. Defined program at

Ireland too has fallen. One state after another is falling
in America, and one country after the other is being
captured in Europe. Satan's triumphant march is in full
swing. Ireland's fall is much more ominous than the previous
ones because this time, the fall has happened not through
powerful lobbies but through the people's mandate. Satan of
gay sex is laughing at the vulnerability of human beings.
Sodom and Gomorrah of history are being rediscovered and
expanded in territory. The rest of the world is watching
with disbelief and amusement.
From the kind of enthusiasm shown by the protagonists of gay
marriages, it appears that soon it will become more
difficult for a person to be heterosexual than homosexual.
It is in human nature to fall to the emerging trends. And
the emerging trend in the West is towards same sex rather
than the opposite. There are already examples, like New
Hollywood in USA, where almost half of the inhabitants have
This reminds me of a verse of the Holy Quran, which points
towards the argument Abraham had with God regarding the
people of Sodom and Gomorrah', which God had decided to
destroy on account of their inhabitants becoming addict to
same sex relationships. Abraham felt sad about the
destruction of the whole populace and pleaded with God to
abandon His plan:
"When the worry left Abraham and he got the good news, he
began to argue with Us for the Community of Lut. Certainly,
Abraham was a man, full of concern, compassionate and
inquisitive." (Quran 11: 74-75)
The details of Abraham's argument with God are captured in
Old Testament ( Genesis 18:16-33New International Version
"16 When the men got up to leave, they looked down toward
Sodom, and Abraham walked along with them to see them on
their way. 17 Then the Lord said, "Shall I hide from Abraham
what I am about to do? 18 Abraham will surely become a great
and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be
blessed through him.[a] 19 For I have chosen him, so that he
will direct his children and his household after him to keep
the way of the Lord by doing what is right and just, so that
the Lord will bring about for Abraham what he has promised
20 Then the Lord said, "The outcry against Sodom and
Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous 21 that I
will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the
outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."
22 The men turned away and went toward Sodom, but Abraham
remained standing before the Lord.[b] 23 Then Abraham
approached him and said: "Will you sweep away the righteous
with the wicked? 24 What if there are fifty righteous people
in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not
spare[c]the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people
in it? 25 Far be it from you to do such a thing-to
kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous
and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge
of all the earth do right?"
26 The Lord said, "If I find fifty righteous people in the
city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their

bold as to speak to the Lord, though I am nothing but dust
and ashes, 28 what if the number of the righteous is five
less than fifty? Will you destroy the whole city for lack of

29 Once again he spoke to him, "What if only forty are found
He said, "For the sake of forty, I will not do it."
30 Then he said, "May the Lord not be angry, but let me
speak. What if only thirty can be found there?"
He answered, "I will not do it if I find thirty there."
31 Abraham said, "Now that I have been so bold as to speak
to the Lord, what if only twenty can be found there?"
He said, "For the sake of twenty, I will not destroy
32 Then he said, "May the Lord not be angry, but let me
speak just once more. What if only ten can be found
He answered, "For the sake of ten, I will not destroy
33 When the Lord had finished speaking with Abraham, he
left, and Abraham returned home."
Abraham thought that at least ten good people will be there
and the cities would be saved. But there were not even ten,
and the twin cities were stoned by the heavens to death.
Normal hygienic and healthy behaviours are important
components of civilisation. Perversions cannot be but the
antidote of civilisation. The perversions that threaten the
lives of individuals and peaceful survival of the most
notable natural institution of family cannot be described
anything but barbarism at its worst. What can then be said
of the "Civilised World" that safeguards, promotes and
commercialises the Sexual perversion of the most abominable
kind and the most life threatening - the
The attempt to legalise Homosexuality is nothing but the
continuation of the same series of worldwide strategies of
"development" in which every human susceptibility is first
given a legal and social sanction, then it is glorified in
the media as a victory of "Freedom of Choice" and "Human
Rights" and then with all the obstacles removed it is
commercialized at huge level.
But the truth remains that the economics of homosexuality
cannot cover for the menace, which homosexuality is. The
attempts to legalise homosexuality are shocking. This is
like legalising murders, terrorism and rapes. Homosexuality
is in fact much more dangerous than any of these, as it has
led, leads to and can lead to a much bigger loss of life .
By legalising gay marriages, homosexuality is being sought
to be institutionalised. Otherwise what can explain why on
the one hand marriages in general are being discouraged and
on the other hand gay marriages are being aggressively
promoted? This is surely aimed at boosting the population of
gays. The children growing in the company of their gay
"parents" will have bigger chances of succumbing to
homosexual tendencies than the normal population. Moreover,
these "parents" cannot be a replacement of natural parents.
Their love for their "children" is not natural. The
affection between parents and children can never be as
fruitful as between the natural parents and children; and
the probability of child abuse will surely be much
To say that homosexuality is natural is like saying criminal
tendencies are natural. These are not natural but human
aberrations of most dangerous kind. Such aberrations are
present in notorious criminals also. Can the crimes be
legalized to help them? Can they be given protection by the
law on the ground of not discriminating against persons?
Even otherwise, homosexuality is a relationship that does
not produce any progeny. So genes if any related to hardcore
unadulterated homosexuality cannot be transmitted. Even if
it is accepted as natural, it remains an anomaly like many
other congenital diseases. The anomalies and diseases need
treatment and counselling rather than acceptance and
It appears that the Satan will continue to laugh, at least
for some more time. Hopefully, an Abraham or a Lot will this
time be able to save the world from being stoned to

What Agha Khanis really Believe has nothing to do with
by Sis. Gulshan [Vancouver, Canada]
[The writer left the Ismaili cult and embraced Islam. She
has been under extreme Ismaili attack on the Internet for
more than 3 years. Here she answers the Agha Khani/Ismaili
claim that they have the same belief system as Muslims---
Malik Bhai: I am addressing you as bhai for one reason only
and that is your language is not as dirty and filthy as Zina
and her gang members that is proving their strong hatred of
Islam and Muslims.
Though, it is not their fault as they are all hypnotized by
the Imams who have taught to hate Islam and the Quran.
Sultan Shah's farman-fatwa of not to ever touch the Quran
and no connection with the Muslims who follow Islam.
This is the same Islam followed by Caliph H. Ali (RA) and
million of Muslims.. Whom Ismailis call Wahabis or
terrorists. This is the teaching of fake Imams who have
filled all with such hatred of Islam. To hate Muslims is a
different thing but to hate Islam is another, a heinous
To be respectful of others is the sign of ethics and moral
values. But how can one learn such when the teacher himself
doesn't have any.
Also to lie about the religion, especially the religion of
Allah is the most
You have every right to defend your religion and so do we.
Although, Islam doesn't need any defense as Allah is the One
to defend HIS given religion. Our ways are only to correct,
and give Allah's truth to all the mankind. Our aim is just
one and that is to rescue the innocent people who are
tangled up in the lies, frauds, scams and the ponzi schemes
in the name of religion. We the converts are giving the same
Islam that is given to Muslims by our beloved Messenger
Muhammad SAWS, and practiced the same by millions of
Nobody has dared to change it except the Agakhans. The 1st
Agakhan an apostate of his own sect, created a new
Hindu-Ismaili religion for the Hindus and made Islam and the
al-Quran haram for them.
Who can deny the historical facts?
Let us not mix the political situation with the religion of
Islam. The wrong actions of some Muslims have nothing to do
with the religion of Islam. It is for their own personal
reasons retaliating against their enemies like any other
people do. The massacre of Ismailis in Pakistan is also by
the rival Ismaili sect who hates each other just like all
the 45 sects of Shia hate each other. The same Ismaili
sectarian fight is going on in Syria, Afghanistan,
Tajikistan etc. This is not the Shia and Ismaili fight, but
the internal communal fight going on since years.
Islam stands on 5 pillars. Belief in Allah is the first
Pillar. If you reject Allah and HIS worship then there is
nothing else, all zero. That's where the Ismailism starts.
You only need to understand this simplest concept of 1st
Pillar of Islam!
Believe in Allah and HIS Messenger Muhammad SAWS.
It is so sad that we were never ever introduced to Allah and
HIS Messenger. Our Rasool SAWS worked hard to remove the
paganism of Idol worshiping but your fake Imam khuda Agakhan
has destroyed it by becoming god himself. Can any Ismailis
deny this fact? It is all done in secret behind the closed
doors of the temple Jamat khana.
Therefore, please kindly stop your sickening nonsense and
lies to convince the Muslims and the world that you believe
in Islam and are Shia Muslim. If you were Muslim following
Islam then Ismailism would have been an open religion and
not a secret religion, where non-Ismailis aren't allowed to
enter in the temple J.Khana. So how do you expect the world
to accept him as an Imam who doesn't allow the 'Conversion'.
Who would be such a fool to convert to Ismailism a man-made
religion by an atheist?
Do you deny that it is not a man-made religion?
It is proven by the changes made about 4-5 times, the flip
flop every few years is the crystal clear evidence. Do we
need to explain any more?
Also the Pandora's box is opened by this notorious zina and
her gang members and her dogi slave Mukhtar an evil man
leaving his Muslim wife and running after the cultic filthy
I don't think he ever was a Muslim. You said::
"All Muslims follow the same Holy Qur'an! What we sell at
our literature counters is the same as any other Quran
(translations may vary!)"..
True all the millions of Muslims shia and Sunni follow the
same Quran, but not Ismailis. The GOD of Shia and Sunni is
One Allah, but Ismailis god is Karim Aga and before him it
was Sultan Shah. Their god changes every few years.
Ismalis are not following the Quran. In fact the Ismailis
have never touched or read the Quran as per order of their
atheist Karimi dajjal.
Quran is only used by the hypocrites who just display our
Quran for the show, to cheat the Muslims that they are Shia
Agakhan should be ashamed of lying about the religion of
Cheating the people is one thing but to cheat Allah is a
criminal activity and a most dangerous heinous sin.
Tell me when was last you took Allah's name? Never.
Did you know about the Quran or did you display it in the
Jamat khana or in the Library when you were in East Africa
or any other country?
None of the Ismailis had any idea what the Quran was, never
heard of it, until they came to the Western countries.
My parents and Grand parents died without knowing Allah or
Never heard of these 2 divine names. They only knew khuda
Who can deny this truth? The hypocrites, liars, deceivers
Your own Imam has forbidden to touch or follow the Quran, so
what nonsense are you all talking about? You can keep all
thousands of Qurans on the show; it doesn't matter as we
know you have nothing to do with our Quran, Allah and Islam.
That is also proven by the anti-Islamic, Ismaili practices
in the Jamat khana.
Where there is no Allah, no Quran, no Muhammad SAWS but only
one the mowla khuda karim Aga, praying to his Photo.
Isn't this practice a violation of the 1st Pillar of Islam?
Who can deny it?
Quran is not for the display but to follow it as Allah's
divine words, which is rejected by both your fake Imams-gods
who have played a dirty game with us all. Their one and only
one aim is to keep you all away from Allah and the Quran and
just using you to earn money from you.

Assad troops abandon their last military base in Syria's

In the latest blow to the government of President Bashar
Assad, the Syrian army retreated Tuesday from its last major
base in northeastern Idlib province, abandoning the
Mastoumeh stronghold to an Islamist-led rebel force.
The estimated 400 men withdrew with most of their equipment
to nearby Ariha, a town of 70,000. The convoy of 20 or more
trucks and at least seven tanks traveled over farm roads
through olive groves starting in the middle of the night
Tuesday. It came under rebel fire en route, resulting in the
loss of several dozen soldiers and a number of armored
vehicles, the pro-rebel Masar Press agency reported.
Not until Tuesday morning did rebels attack the camp itself,
capturing three tanks and some large artillery pieces,
according to a Syrian reporter at the scene whose name
McClatchy is withholding for his safety.
Moderate rebel commanders, who were closely monitoring the
situation but did not take part in the offensive, said
negotiations had been going on for weeks to ensure a
complete withdrawal of the army from what was once a key
supply road linking Latakia, the province that is dominated
by Assad's Alawite sect, with Aleppo, once Syria's
commercial center and now contested between various rebel
groups and the government.
It's not clear exactly what deal was struck between the
military and the rebel forces, which include Jabhat al
Nusra, al Qaida's affiliate in Syria, another extremist
group, Jund al Aqsa, the Islamist group Ahrar al Sham and
Heavy fighting continued Tuesday evening as rebels seized at
least one checkpoint just outside Ariha and were fighting
for a second.
With the loss of Mastoumeh, the government now controls only
the Abu Duher airport in the east of the province and a
hospital-turned-base in the town of Jisr al Shugour that has
been under rebel siege for the past two weeks. Moderate
commanders said they expect the government's troops to leave
Ariha at their earliest opportunity because they no longer
can be supplied by road.
EDITORS: STORY CAN END HERE
Mastoumeh is the latest in a string of defeats for the
Syrian military in the past two months. Islamists led by
fighters from Nusra seized Idlib, the provincial capital, on
March 28. On April 25, a combined force that included
U.S.-backed moderate rebels seized Jisr al Shugour, a
strategic town on the main east-west highway. Two days
later, a combined rebel force seized the Qarmeed base on the
same road. Since then, rebel forces in different
configurations have seized outposts and checkpoints every
Although some foreign observers credit rebel gains to
increased collaboration between three regional powers
supporting the rebels - Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar -
moderate commanders said the real explanation was closer to
the ground. This is that all groups, with the exception of
the extremist Islamic State, decided to put aside their past
enmities and to organize coordinated assaults on the regime
using a joint operations room.
Once a political indoctrination camp for elementary
schoolchildren that the army seized in 2011 in the early
days of Syria's unrest, the Mastoumeh base became a symbol
of Assad's resort to violence in May of that year, when
townspeople from Ariha marched on it, chanting, "The people
want the government to fall."Troops opened fire, killing at
least 11 civilians.

With the capture of Palmyra, the Islamic State militants now

Its vast terrain inside Syria stretches from the group's
westernmost strongholds in Aleppo province to its core
territory in northeastern Syria down to central Syria, with
footholds in Damascus.
Palmyra's location in Syria's heartland offers the militants
several important advantages, said Faysal Itani, a resident
fellow at the Atlantic Council. The town can now be used as
a launching pad to threaten government positions and supply
lines south of Aleppo and east of Homs and Hama, and open up
a new approach to Damascus, seat of Assad's power.
IS can also threaten regime supply lines to the eastern city
of Deir el-Zour, where government forces are still holding
out against the militants.
"If IS manages to cut off Deir el-Zour, it is likely that
the city would fall, essentially ending regime presence in
that province, and consolidating IS' core territory," he
The fall of Palmyra follows major setbacks for Assad in
northern and southern Syria. "This is simply an indication
of how overstretched the regime is," Itani said.
Most Notorious Prison broken by IS. Christian Prisoners too
In taking Palmyra, IS also seized control of the notorious
Tadmur Prison, freeing some of those imprisoned inside, said
Bebars al-Talawy, a Homs activist. The government had
already transferred thousands of detainees from the prison
to a jail near Damascus as IS attacked the city, al-Talawy
said. Thousands were believed to still be inside, he said,
but he couldn't provide precise figures.
The prison survives in the collective memory of Syrians as
the place where dissidents were held for decades and
A report by a local Lebanese station that 27 Lebanese
prisoners, including some jailed since the 1980s, were among

that your selfish or satanic urges are less important to

battlefield and head into battle get worn out. Therefore
good warriors cause others to come to them, and do not go to

classic from around 500 BC.
This could mean many things on different levels but those
who are at peace with the concept that life is all about
struggle are at ease, while those who delay are unlikely to
attain any victory.

rather that it just makes sense when you think about it.
Presumably, these sages were drawing upon centuries of past
The same thing when we read from the Quran. Although this
book is only 1400 years old, it discusses stories and
concepts that go back to the BC era. A very large portion of
the Quran is dedicated to discussing the Laws of Moses and
the Teachings of Christ. I think Moses was supposed to have
lived about 2000 BC and Jesus around the year 0. The Buddha
is also said to have reformed India from its paganism around
5 BC. The scriptural teachings of the Buddha and Jesus tend
to overlap. The spiritual goal of selflessness seems to be
the common path.
Shaykh Hakim Moinuddin Chishti writes in the book, "Sufi
Healing," that "In its progression through life, the
physical body passes through stages from infancy to youth,
adulthood and old age. Similarly, the soul passes through
specific evolutionary stages or stations."
These are described as the Station of Egotism, the Heart,
the Pure Spirit, the Divine Secrets, the Proximity to Allah,
and lastly, the Station of Union with the Beloved. There is
some philosophical overlap between this and the 7 chakras,
which are physical energy centers along the human spine.
Knowledge of the chakras is essential for directing healing
energy into specific realms. Direction of light into the
crown chakra is said to be equivalent to spiritual
enlightenment or God-consciousness.
Nowadays people are trying to find spiritual meaning beyond
what their parents thought they should strive for. Even if
they all agree that Paradise is the goal, their plan of
action may differ.

would you want to settle down there?" writes Said al-Din
Farghani, a disciple of Ibn al Arabi's stepson, Sadr al-Din
Qunawi, in the 13th century.
Therefore our entire idea of paradise could be suspect. We
need to let go and experience something like spiritual exile
and abandonment, until we find our true home. We can only do
this by disbelieving all that we have ever been told. "La
ilaha" means rejection of all false gods. It means
repudiating this world and all its glittery offerings and
Until we truly understand "la ilaha," how can we understand
"il Allah." The Asian concept of Taoism, for example
yin-yang, gives us the language of balance and opposites.
'There is no god' is like the night. 'except Allah' is like
the daylight. You need both for the 24 hour cycle to exist.
It is just as important to doubt everything as it is to
believe. Otherwise, your belief has no meaning.

Cleveland Police Officer Acquitted of Manslaughter
By MITCH SMITH MAY 23, 2015 AOL News.
The windshield of Timothy Russell's car was shown last month
during Officer Brelo's trial.
A Cleveland police officer who climbed onto the hood of a
car after a chase and fired repeatedly at its unarmed
occupants in 2012 was acquitted of manslaughter on Saturday
by an Ohio judge.
The trial of the officer, Michael Brelo, played out amid
broader questions about how the police interact with
African-Americans and the use force, in Cleveland and across
Officer Brelo was one of several officers who shot at
Timothy Russell and his passenger, Malissa Williams, during
a chase through the Cleveland area on Nov. 29, 2012. The
chase, which started in downtown Cleveland, began after
reports of gunfire from the car; prosecutors said the noise
may have been the car backfiring.
After the gunfire reports, over 100 officers pursued the car
for more than 20 miles at speeds that reached 100 miles an
hour. Police officers fired 137 rounds at the car after it
was cornered, prosecutors have said, including 49 by Officer
Other officers stopped firing after Mr. Russell's Chevy
Malibu was surrounded and came to a stop, but prosecutors

Prosecutors said Officer Brelo's actions crossed the line
from justifiable to reckless when he climbed onto the car's
hood, but the judge disagreed.
Before rendering his verdict, Judge John P. O'Donnell of the
Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court spoke from the bench
about widespread tensions between the police and
African-Americans, mentioning Ferguson, Mo., and

"In many American places, people are angry with, mistrustful
and fearful of the police," Judge O'Donnell said. "Citizens
think the men and women sworn to protect and serve have
violated that oath or never meant it in the first
But he said he would not let those sentiments cloud his
verdict and found that Officer Brelo had reasonably
perceived a threat from the car. The decision to continue
firing from the hood was protected by law, he ruled,
clearing Officer Brelo of all charges. The shooting was
"reasonable despite knowing now that there was no gun in the
car, and he was mistaken about the gunshots," Judge

"I reject the claim that 12 seconds after the shooting
began, it was patently clear from the perspective of a
reasonable police officer that the threat had been stopped,"
Judge O'Donnell said, contrasting the prosecutors' claims
that the justifiable action ended when Officer Brelo climbed
onto the hood.
Officer Brelo, who opted for a bench trial, had sat
stoically throughout the four-week trial. On Saturday, he
could be seen shifting in his seat, at times resting his
head in his hands. At one point, he made a quick sign of the
Patrick A. D'Angelo, one of Officer Brelo's lawyers, said
his team was "elated" with the verdict, and he blamed an
"oppressive government" for bringing the charges. "We stood
tall, we stood firm," Mr. D'Angelo said, "because we didn't
do anything illegal. We didn't do anything wrong."
Alfredo Williams, Ms. Williams's brother, criticized the
ruling in an interview with Fox 8 in Cleveland. "This police
should have went to jail for life for this," Mr. Williams
said. "This is straight murder."
Officer Brelo's trial drew protesters, who cited the case as
an example of overly aggressive policing in Cleveland. Last
year, the Justice Department found a pattern of
"unreasonable and unnecessary use of force" within the
department. The verdict came as an investigation continues
into the death of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old black boy who
was holding a replica gun when a Cleveland police officer
shot him in November. That shooting, captured on video, has
also garnered national attention and resulted in
In closing arguments, Mr. D'Angelo said his client believed
he was under attack when he fired on the car. "What would
make him want to shoot through the windshield at another
human being?" Mr. D'Angelo said. "Could it be that he was
shot at? Could it be that he reasonably perceived that the
occupants of the Malibu were shooting at him? That's what
all the other officers perceived. That's what Officer Brelo
Mother's Day in America Should be Boycotted! Guess Why?
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]
This may be an unpopular thing to say but, I have my
The Hadith says that paradise rests at the mother's feet,
which I interpret as motherhood being 2nd only to Allah
(swt). However, as important as motherhood or parenthood is
to Allah and in Islam, the Holy Qur'an says to pay your
parents with kindness. Clothing, feeding, and sheltering a
child, biological or adopted, does not come with a price
tag. There is no price anyone can place on caring for
another soul. So, the only way to repay your parents for
what they have done when we could not do it for ourselves is
to treat them with kindness.
But, that is not the type of society we live in is it? We
live in a capitalistic society that has commercialized
parenthood (Father's Day is coming up in June). People,
so-called Muslims included, will be rushing to and from
stores looking for gifts just to beat that deadline,
whatever it may be, for that day. It is ridiculous!
Commercialization devalues a person. We live in a society
where your value is based on how much money you generate for
someone. Parenthood is such a responsibility and that should
not be taken lightly.
According to the capitalistic male chauvinists, women should
not have sports leagues of their own because they do not
have the money-pulling power of their male counterparts. In
most other countries, including Muslim countries, women have
a sports league simply because the men have one. What's good
for the gander is good for the goose. When you see things
that way, the American capitalist logic is rather
Woman are only good for two things, according to male
chauvinists: As mothers bearing their children and for
providing sexual gratification. Some men have such a
distorted view of women that they only place "value" on
women they are having a sexual relationship with to the
detriment of their own female family members!
These limiting male chauvinist philosophies are perpetuated
by the mothers! There are many women who believe that it is
a man's world and that women are to do whatever they can to
accommodate them. The Women's National basketball
Association (WNBA) has been trying, for some odd reason, to
attract male chauvinist fans to their sport for years. These
female athletes are convinced by male marketing executives
that in order to attract male fans they must sell their sex
rather than market their skill. Many female athletes, except
for the lesbians who are already live a defiant existence
anyway, are very insecure.
Feminism cannot defeat male chauvinism. As a matter of fact,
they want to copy it! They feed into the commercialization
of females as well by stating that being a wife or mother is
like having a 9 to 5 job. Many of these feminists will state
that wives and mothers should be making six figure incomes
and are in dire need of a raise. Under capitalism being a
wife and motherhood are professions!
Your self-worth should not be based on how others,
especially the oppressor, label you. Reading the Holy Qur'an
and the Authentic Hadith can increase your feelings of
self-worth ten fold! Your confidence and self-esteem will
get a serious boost. It is a freeing feeling to be happy in
your own skin. Allah (swt) raises his human creation in high
esteem (Qur'an Surah 94). This is the power of Islam to
terminate such nonsensical beliefs.
Capitalism has permeated the very fabric of this society and
it is rooted in greed. Adam Smith, the father of capitalism,
stated that capitalism cannot thrive without greed. Mother's
Day, Father's Day, Green Capitalism, which is money-making
ventures with a conscience, are all based on greed, not good
I may be accused of being cynical but, I understand that
nothing is sanctioned by this government or any politicians
unless there is money to be made from it:
Charter schools - Benefit corporations
Obamacare - Benefits the insurance companies
Pharmaceuticals - Remember when former Texas Governor Rick
Perry mandated that every every girl 13 years and older get
the HPV vaccine, in 2007? Well, he had received tens of
thousands of dollars from Merck, the manufacturer of the HPV
vaccine, since 2000. During his re-election bid, which he
won, Perry stated that the mandate was a mistake. Many
politicians are slaves to lobbyists.
