25 Ramadan 1436 A.H.- July 12, 2015 Issue # 80, Newsletter #1610
Distinguished Pakistani columnist Munir Ahmad Khalili
corrects the misunderstanding of the hadith that the devil
is chained in Ramadan. Khalili drastically analyzes the
situation in Pakistan where sinful activities, corruption
and exploitation continue during Ramadan. Khalili points out
from the Qur'an that the devil has been given a free hand
till the end of days.The hadith is about those who fast with
sincerity and taqwa. For them, the devil is chained up.
It's in excellent Urdu.
On Friday July 10, there was a big demonstration at the
embassy of Thailand in Ankara because Thailand has deported
100 Uighur Muslim refugees to China. The embasy was roughed
up. President Erdogan has expressed concern about the
deportation. Previously Thailand had allowed 173 Uighurs to
go to Turkey. Now China is claiming that Muslims wanted to
go to Syria and is treating them as terrorists.
Iran: Supporting Assad.
The nuclear talks were a cover for
US-Iran cooperation against the resistance.

On July 12, a martyrdom operator hit Camp Chapman, the US

Editorial Note by Kaukab Siddique
Ramadan is ending. Have we changed? Or are we heading
towards collective catastrophe?
Do we care for the Ummah? Are we still not aware of the new

Such long fasts! Such hot weather! We still fasted! The
Night of Power is here! What will we pray for?
If we have not changed, becomce MUTTAQI, then Allah does not
need what we did. He will bring better people.
America's Muslim "leadership" has these goals in complete
negation of Islam:
Assimilation into the American power structure, wooing
those in power.
Acceptance of forces hostile to Islam: Silence about
Israel. Silence about occupation of Muslim lands. Silence
about dictators and kings supported by America's rulers.
All the Muslim leaders and activists in prison have been
Building expensive mosques, fancier and fancier, with
none costing less than a milion dollars. Tying the Muslim
communities into the recurring expenses these mosques
require. So, no money for the real issues.
The mass culture of drugs, crime, fornication, adultery,
homosexuality surrounds the Muslims but the Muslim
leadership has no forceful counter program. Non-Muslim Women
have been reduced to "white" slavery under various guises.
The power structure and media have disconnected America's
Muslims from the global Muslim ummah. The leadership has
NOTHING to say about this situation. Any Muslim fighting
against the western powers and their allies is immediately
dubbed "terrorist." Muslim leaders in fact support this
Groups with no Islamic credibility have made themselves
spokespersons for all of 7 to 9 million Muslims of America.
NOT even ONE MILLION-DOLLAR-MASJID has said LA [no] to
the American power structure. Their kalima is incomplete.
For most Muslims, blasphemy against the Prophet Muhammad,
pbuh, is a red line, but the "leaders" are silent even about
"cartoons" of the Prophet, pbuh, published by the supporters
The worst insult to the Prophet's, pbuh, sunnah is the
picnic version of Islam and the "charity" version of Islam.
Of course we should relax but if that is all we do, that is
not Islam. Of course charity is important, but if that is
all we do, that is not Islam
Dear Muslims, my friends and I organized Jamaat al-Muslimeen
to change the course of Muslim history in America.
Join us or form your own, or tomorrow your children will
tell you that homosexuality is "no big deal" and bombing
Muslim countries is fine because they are "terrorists!"

Juma-tul-Wida at the Islamic Society of Baltimore [ISB].
Supporting a Kaffir and an Oppressor. $40,000 for dinner.
By Nadrat Siddique
I made the juma'ah prayers at ISB (Islamic Society of
Baltimore) today. Recall that this is
one of the government's flagship masajid, replete with DHS
cameras and whatnot
(unfortunately not unusual for many monied mosques today). I
hadn't been there in a while.
ISB is not a poor mosque to begin with. It is valued at
$813,000. An SDAT real estate
search revealed that $675,000 of this is in improvements
done by the mosque
association after it was purchased. So clearly, some
individuals associated with the
mosque have money, and lots of it.
That made it all the more surprising that the mimbar would
be used for well hitting up
you and I for a lil cash. Much of the second half of the
khutbah was a fundraising pitch
for the grandiose mosque. On the prestigious occasion of
Juma-tul-Wida, Part 2 of the
khutbah had the tone of an auction (or the lead in to one,
in any event). The real
"auction" was the next day, when ISB would have their annual
fundraising dinner, into
which, said the imam, they ordinarily invested $30,000 to
$40,000 for the dinners served to the guests.
The khutbah ended with the imam invoking du'ah for various
members of the
congregation who were ill. That was understandable, I
thought. After all, these brothers
and sisters are part of the masjid community (and even if
they weren't, they are part of the ummah).
But it was the imam's final du'ah that almost made me fall
over. He asked the
congregants to pray for Governor Larry Hogan. Hogan, he
said, was also "sick,"
referring to the Maryland Governor's recent cancer
diagnosis. "And Hogan, being the
leader of Maryland, is our leader, too," continued the imam.
"May Allah give him health
and hikma (wisdom)," said the imam.
I was flabbergasted. The imam was praying for a kaffir, out
of the pulpit which ideally
ought emulate that of the Rasool (SAW). I'm not an Islamic
scholar, but I don't believe
the Rasool ever made du'ah for kaffirs out of the pulpit. So
it was quite out of line, it would seem.
On top of it all, imam sahib was praying for a man who had
just weeks prior called the
National Guard on Black youth in Baltimore, risking a blood
bath. He labeled and
blackballed them as "thugs," "criminals," and "rioters"
because they had the gaul to
stand up against police brutality. And about a week after
the Baltimore Uprising (termed
"Riots" by corporate media and government), he rescinded $11
million dollars in
educational funds from those youth (a total of $68 million
was rescinded from Maryland
schools in toto). So, Hogan is hardly someone who is aligned
with the oppressed.
And our imam couldn't find anyone else to pray for? This is
a sad, sad commentary on us as an Ummah.

Petition for Commutation of Sentence for Masoud Khan from
his mother & Community
To: President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
Dear President Obama:
The case of Masoud Khan is an example of preemptive
prosecution: a law enforcement strategy, adopted after
9/11, to target and prosecute individuals or organizations
whose beliefs, ideology, or religious affiliations raise
security concerns for the government. I support the efforts
of Masoud's family and supporters for commutation
of his sentence and allow him to return to his family and
his Maryland community. We ask you to make
possible this forgiveness, healing, and rekindling of hope
for Masoud, his family, and his community.

He visited Pakistan
and played paintball in
The court said this was a
"conspiracy to conspire."
In 2001, Masoud, a newlywed, met a group of young Muslims
who attended a mosque in Falls Church, Virginia. They played
recreational paintball in the woods, fired legally owned
firearms on a firing range, and discussed international
politics and the obligations of Muslims to defend their
faith. Masoud played paintball only once and was never a
part of their group. In September, he was summoned to
Pakistan by its High Court for a family estate matter. While
there, he toured an LET training camp, which focused on
liberating Kashmir from India, but he never joined LET,
never planned any violent activity or attacked anyone, and
at the time LET was not considered a terrorist organization
by the U.S.
Masoud returned to America, and in 2003 was arrested and
charged not with terrorism but for conspiracy to violate the
Neutrality Acts--obscure, rarely enforced laws that make it
a crime for Americans to attack a country (in this case,
India) with which the United States is at peace. Other
Muslims from the Virginia paintball group were also
arrested; thus Masoud was charged for associating with
people who were "conspiring to conspire"--planning to make a
plan--although the FBI conceded that the government had no
evidence of specific plots against the U.S. at home or
abroad, and said that "a lot of this is about preemption."
Masoud, who was unable to testify at trial, was convicted.
The judge stated that she had no choice under the law
to sentence him to life without parole, and that "I have
sentenced al-Qaeda members who were planning real attacks on

Unmet Relational Needs in Muslim Culture: Examples from
Pakistan and Iran.
by Karin Friedemann
One of the most astonishing things I am noticing about
Muslim culture is the widespread tendency to marry a woman
and then physically and emotionally abandon her. Men are now
using a new excuse:
"It was just an arranged marriage."
Abandonment, whether or not required by economic necessity,
is reinforced by shame related to divorce, and the belief
that 'good' women don't remarry.
"She is just someone my late mother chose."
A married woman becomes property of her in-laws, as opposed
to a life partner of her husband, who feels no shame leaving
her alone and pregnant. She is merely a tool to provide his
parents with grandchildren.
The cultural taboo against divorce even after abandonment
often assumes that a 'decent' woman would never consider
gainful employment. So even if a marriage is totally
unsatisfactory, the woman would beg the husband not to
divorce her. She would pretend that she is still in a
marriage, even when the husband has clearly moved out
forever, or visits only every few years.
Muslim men seem to think that marriage is defined purely by
financial support. There doesn't seem to be any awareness of
the relational needs (including sexual) of women. While men
are encouraged to marry as many women as they need to make
sure there is no buildup of semen, women seem to almost
happily consent to the degradation of their internal organs
through non-use, as long as there is money coming in, and
even when there is not. While financial support is better
than no financial support, what is the deal with a man
deciding that any woman has no right to have sex, ever
again, in her life? He can divorce her and pay child
support, maybe alimony.
Surat al Baqara, Verse 229 states: "either you retain her on
reasonable terms or release her with kindness."
There is a lofty egotism that says, "as long as I am paying
her bills I own the non-use of her body."
We know from hadith that the early Muslims did not have
taboos against divorce and remarriage. If Hussain (RA) were
alive today, he would be considered quite the gigolo.
Pre-Islamic pagan Arab women could initiate divorce merely
by turning their tent so that the entrance was facing in a
new direction. The newly instituted Islamic concept of
marriage was primarily a contract to make sure that parental
lineage and responsibility were never in question.
The influence of Hinduism and Christianity added to Islamic
practice the concept of shame in remarriage, which is based
on the assumption that sex is purely for procreation and not
a human right in itself, which is based on the idea that
women are innately filthy, that men should try to avoid
women, and that a woman should only ever taste one husband,
even if that means she spends the majority of her life
The book, "Law of Desire" by Shahla Haeri is based on a
study of marriage practices in post-revolutionary Iran. It
describes many instances where wives are divorced by their
husbands and become destitute, even homeless. Because
remarriage is very rare in the culture, this creates an
underclass of women who are essentially prostitutes, except
that they have to wait 2 months in between sexual
encounters, during which time they are merely beggars in
front of the shrines. There is such a gross class difference
between "kept women" and "husbandless women" that women will
compete with each other for dominance instead of welcoming
second wives as sisters.
Interestingly, the women most likely to be free to remarry,
even if impermanently or non-residentially, are those who
have a bad relationship with their parents. This would imply
that the parents themselves are preventing the 'good'
divorced daughter from meeting a man, because of fears of
disgrace overriding their concern for her health.
I'll never forget the day when I was trying to discuss our
relationship or the lack thereof with my Pakistani husband,
and his solution to the problem was to "send me back to my
parents." As an American woman over the age of 30, who had
worked in jobs and rented her own apartment before marriage,
this sounded completely absurd. I will go to my parents if I
decide to go to my parents. I am not a parcel to send
somewhere! I was completely baffled that he really viewed me
in such a dehumanizing way, as a person without personhood?!
He eventually became the perfect ex-husband, but I now
notice more and more how people think this is a "man's
I do not wish to conclude that non-Muslim culture is
superior. I notice the politics of greetings in American
culture, where men always greet each other while women are
usually mute on the side. While laws do not prevent
non-Muslims from marriage and remarriage, gainful employment
of the woman seems to be a prerequisite, and her ability to
get time alone away from her children. In other words, the
man either wants the woman to pay half the bills or else he
only wants to visit her when she is alone. He is not
volunteering to be the head of a family. This usually
requires a third party to be available to take care of the
children so the woman can date, which means that the woman
owes someone, rather than the man providing for her and her
It is hard to know which situation is more humiliating.
There are pros and cons to each situation: the man providing
for an estranged wife vs. the woman being financially
independent. Divorce is never an ideal situation, especially
when children are involved. It is a wonderful gift of this
century from God, to have the opportunity and freedom to be
able to pick and choose wisely between religious and legal
laws, to provide the best possible security and outcome for

Selling Iconic Black History: Black "Leader " and
Gentrification in Harlem.
by Sis. Aisha
Abyssinia Baptist Church purchased the abandoned and
dilapidated Renaissance Theater, which is located further
uptown in Harlem.. It was built by Black entrepreneur
William C. Roach, in 1921, and he spared no expense. He
wanted this theater to rival the most extravagant theaters
in any White New York City areas. Of course, there is a lot
of Jazz and dance history there, too. The unbeatable
basketball team, The Harlem Rens, played there for awhile.
But, all of that means nothing. It is true that many of us
Black folk love to reminisce about the era long gone rather
than focus on building the future. However, the Black
bourgeoisie and the working class Black' definition of
progress differ significantly.
Many Black bourgeoisie view of Black community progress
includes validation by the White presence and lining their
own pockets. The working class citizens are puzzled as to
how certain services, such as garbage trucks only operating
in the daytime rather than keeping people up during the
night, are enforced now that their White counterparts are
residing in their community now. Many of us are more angered
at Blackm"leadership" more than anything else.
The City Council is predominantly Black and Latino and has
managed to do NOTHING to protect or help empower their
respective communities. I have no expectation from
politicians. They are black faces in high places, as Black
radio show host, Bob Law used to say.
Which brings me to my next point....
Rev. Calvin Butts, who has played a significant role in
gentrifying Harlem, has sold The Renaissance Theater to a
developer. This developer is also of African-descent but,
what he has produced are virtual plans for a condominium in
that very location. It does not lo ok as if he has any plans
to restore this place, which is what Abyssinia promised it
would do over 15 years ago when it owned the building. Rev.
Butts has exploited Abyssinia's prominent position in the
community and its stronghold on Harlem property to fatten
his pockets. This behavior was very uncharacteristic of
previous ministers, such as Rev. Adam Clayton Powell, Sr.
and Jr. Any efforts from White leadership to have them sway
the Black parishioners a certain way that was detrimental to
the community was met with a very firm, "No!" I guess,
that's why they had to remove Junior from his Congressional
seat, in 1967, ---- illegally! The Supreme Court had to
restore his seat, in 1969!
This is the common stereotype about Black folks loving money
so much that we are willing to destroy our communities for
it. It is an unfair stereotype since greed transcends all
races and cultures. However, one of the worst cases of greed
exhibited by Black people is one of the reasons why so many
millions of Africans are living here in the so-called New
World rather than in Africa.
Local Harlem residents are planning to appeal to the
developer since, the theater has never been given landmark
status. Abyssinia successfully fought the landmark
designation, years ago. That means the plan all along was
for Rev. Calvin Butts to sell this building for top dollar
and he accomplished his goal. Now, hopefully, the people
protesting the demolition of this cultural icon can work
with the new owner.
Oppression can only happen with our help. [ Source: What's

complications and was admitted to Vellore GH initially and

Ajwa Dates which the Prophet, pbuh, used to eat, have
miraculous Health Qualities
by Javed Chaudhry via TV Express [with thanks to Dr. Teepu
Ajwa dates are one of the most expensive dates in its raw
form in Saudi Arabia. One kg cost about 80/SR. Its look is
unique and taste is superb. Dates are also rich in natural
fibers. Modern medicine has shown that they are effective in
preventing abdominal cancer. They also surpass other fruits
in the sheer variety of their constituents. They contain
oil, calcium, sulfur, iron, potassium, phosphorous,
manganese, copper and magnesium.The dates are highly
nutritious, full of sugar (60%), and small quantities of fat
(2%), proteins (2%), and minerals (2%). In other words, one
date satisfies the minimum requirements of a balanced and
Iron, the mineral that prevents anemia and which is a part
of the hemoglobin molecule in the blood.Magnesium, which has
an important role in the nervous system integrity and in
energy production.Potassium, useful in cases of
hypertensionCalcium and Phosphorus, essential for healthy

(Niacin), protecting from pellagra, a disease which is
manifested as dermatitis, dementia and fatigue. Niacin also
reduces triglycerides and cholesterol levels (LDL) in the
blood, thus protects the heart and circulatory systemFolic
acid, essential for protection against atherosclerosis and
heart problems, and for protein metabolism
Experiments have also shown that dates contain some
stimulants that strengthen the muscles of the uterus in the
last months of pregnancy. This helps the dilation of the
uterus at the time of delivery on one hand and reduces the
bleeding after delivery on the other. Dietitians consider
dates as the best food for women in confinement and those
who are breast-feeding.Arabs usually combine dates with milk
and yogurt or bread, butter and fish. This combination
indeed makes a self-sufficient and tasty diet for both mind
with in the dates Ajwa has some unique characteristics. Ajwa
is the favorite date of Nabi e Kareem(saw) and there are
some ahadith regarding the superiority of Ajwa among other
kinds of dates.
According to Ahadith e Mubarika Narrated Saad: Allah's
Apostle said, "He who eats seven Ajwa dates every morning,
will not be affected by poison or magic on the day he eats
(Sahih Bukhari Book65, Hadith 356)
In Tirmidhi (2068) it is quoted that:
"Ajwa dates are from paradise"
'A'isha reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him)
as saying: The Ajwa dates of 'Aliya' contain heating effects
and these are antidote in the early morning.
(Sahih Muslim Book 23, Hadith 5083)
Advising the patients with Ischemic Heart Disease is a
routine in Saudi Arabia. It has marvelous effects on
improving the circulatory system. In one of symposium held
in Jeddah about 7 years ago, I heard Dr.Ahmed a renowned
Cardiologist shared his experiment when he advised his
patient to use Ajwa dates whose coronary arteries was 90%
blocked due to atherosclerosis(reduction of diameter of
lumen due to increased fat deposition). He was on
vasodilators and Statins since 5 years when he first
consulted Dr.Ahmed. The patient was unable to walk or use
stairs. After one month of using 7 dates in the morning the
patient became able to use stairs and walk for 20 minutes
with slight difficulty and exertion and after the end of 4th
month he started working like a normal person.Today morning
when I read the article of Javed Chohdri, I couldn't help
sharing this event.
Unfortunately no valuable and scientific research till this
date has been done on Ajwa dates. I believe that the Ajwa
dates should be thoroughly researched by our scientists in
Pakistan and Ajwa dates should be tried by our physicians
and cardiologists.It is the biggest gift from Allah(swt) for
the heart patients.
