Hadith of the Week
"There is no Muslim who calls upon his Lord with a dua in
which there is no sin or severing of family ties, but Allah
will give him one of three things: Either He will answer his
prayer quickly, or He will store (the reward for) it in the
Hereafter, or He will divert an equivalent evil away from
him." They said: "We will say more dua." He said: "Allah's
bounty is greater."

All out attack on Kaukab Siddique by major Zionist "liberal"
On July 22, a "liberal" blog known as the Daily Beast
attacked Dr. Kaukab Siddique. The attack was picked up and
passed on by:
The New York Times
The Washington Post
The Philadelphia Inquirer
The Huffington Post
Smaller Zionist outlets picked it up from there, linking up
with their support groups on campuses. Local media around
Siddique's job area also picked it up.
Zionist groupies started sending hate mail to Dr.
Right winger Fox TV too attacked briefly and then gave it
Veteran Islam haters like Pamela Geller and Spencer [so
called Jihad Watch] started frothing with bigotry.
The situation became serious when an African American State
Senator wrote to the President of Siddique's university,
calling for immediate action against him.
The faculty at Lincoln University should be thanked that
they have not wavered in the university's stance that even
though they don't agree with Siddique, in some cases, they
will not deny him the right to express himself in his own
forum and his community outside the university.
Muslim activists came out in good numbers in support of Dr.
On face book a prayer chain was set up by Muslim women
calling on Allah Almighty to protect and inspire Dr.
Islamic activists in increasing numbers are coming out in
support of him.
Some very nice posters have been published on line.
A few non-Muslims have also come out against the attackers.
One outstanding one is The Latest News [TLN].

relatively reasonably well researched interview published on

Critique of Br. Kaukab's Article on "Obey Husband or Allah."
Writer accepts Br. Kaukab's Progressive Approach but....
Salaam Prof Siddique,
Some rough comments on your recent woman article.
Hitting of women: Having discussed this before using the
rationale of progressive revelations. Women found it hard to
accept that hitting was ordained at any stage. To explain it
better you have to explain that violence was the norm in
this society and in that context this was very mild and
I believe firmly in the progressive approach towards
Islam. I think the message indicates a trajectory. It gets
better and better over time. You can't accept this, because
you want everything firmly chained to 7th century
I like to imagine (perhaps wrongly) as people get more
educated, socially developed with assistance from
technology, peoples behavior and outlook automatically
changes. Also, if you are brought up in the west you will
have a different attitude. Because of this, I note that
fewer and fewer people are making a problem out the need to
have a mahram. Especially not all those teenage girls
absconding to join isis.
There is a general disapproval of domestic violence in
western culture as well as within schools. Hopefully some of
this filters across to the way people conduct their personal
relationships as well?
Your remarks about obedience are highly misleading. There
is a verse in the Quran which says obey the Prophet. Also
obey those in authority amongst you. Clearly the beating
verse only makes sense if the husband has authority to do
beatings. However, I think you are trying to distinguish
between "being in charge" and "obedience in the way that we
obey God" which is a good thing.
I think you must distinguish between obeying God, when the
verses are actually being revealed and the Prophet is
amongst you, from today, when what ever we do will be an
interpretation. So today you can have benefit of doubt about
having a different opinion on what God wants you to do.
Editor's note: Authority in Islam is based on shoora, not on
dominance or male superiority.

Latest Revolutionary Khutba
No slavery, no Male dominance, No superiority based on race
or class or gender. The Qur'an is our Miracle. Muhammad,
pbuh, is our leader.
On August 21, 2015 Br. Kaukab Siddique gave the juma' khutba
and led prayers and du'a at Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in
Baltimore. A security alert was in effect owing to a
received threat and campaign of abuse and slander against
Br. Kaukab and his daughter.
Here is the outline of the khutba for distribution to
communities across America, inshaAllah.
Said Moses to his people: "Pray for help from Allah, and
(wait) in patience and constancy: for the earth is Allah's,
to give as a heritage to such of His servants as He pleases;
and the end is (best) for the righteous. - ' "The Qur'an
7:128 (Y. Ali)
A man said, "O Allah's messenger! Which sin is the biggest
in Allah's Sight?" The Prophet said, "To set up rivals unto
Allah though He Alone created you." That man said, "What is
next?" The Prophet said, "To kill your son lest he should
share your food with you.'' The man said,"What is next?" The
Prophet said, "To commit sexual intercourse with the wife of
your neighbor." Then Allah revealed in confirmation of that:
"And those who invoke not with Allah any other god, nor kill
such life as Allah has made sacred except for just cause,
nor commit illegal sexual intercourse and whoever does this
shall receive the punishment..... (Sahih Bukhari: 25.68)
We pray, we fast, we give charity, we care for our
neighbors, but we are forgetting the central message of
Islam: to put an end to all kinds of slavery and oppression.
Acceptance of human authority is SHIRK, the only
One of the earliest verses revealed to the Prophet, pbuh,
was 90:13 which defines Islam as: "To free the slave."
Islam was not even a community or a state at that time. As
an activist said: Write 90:13 on the back of our children's
When the Islamic State was established, Allah commanded
the Muslims to use their funds, among other causes, to:
"FREE the CAPTIVES" [2: 177]
A slave is a man or a woman who is controlled totally by
other humans, be it physically, financially, sexually or
emotionally. Any and all forms of slavery are opposed and
condemned by Islam.
The Prophet Muhammad; pbuh, taught that Allah will not
accept the prayers of one who enslaves people. In a powerful
hadith which helped me to understand Islam, he, pbuh, taught
that on the Day of Resurrection, Allah Almighty Himself will
be the enemy of one who enslaves people. [Sahih Bukhari.
Book #36, Hadith #470]
People of Arabia often used the name ";Abd" [slave] [of
so and so power]. Muhammad, pbuh, taught Muslims to name
their male children ABDULLAH, the slave of Allah, and
females AMATALLAH. Four of the greatest narrators of hadith
were named Abdullah.
All the great messengers of Allah were given miracles.
For Moses, the sea parted. For Isa' [Jesus], he spoke from
the cradle and revived a dead person, for Abraham fire was
turned into flowers, for Hajira, there was the blessed water
of zam zam which still exists. The greatest miracle was
given to Muhammad who was taken by a creature of light
[buraq], to Jerusalem and from there he went on the mairaj
to the seven heavens. [Sura Isra in the Qur'an and extensive
hadith in Bukhari]. He led all the previous messengers of
Allah in prayer. [Peace be on them all.]
We must liberate Jerusalem from the occupiers.
All the great miracles are signs from Allah that Moses,
Abraham, Jesus and Muhammad were true messengers of Allah.
However, their miracles do not help us in our daily lives
except as signs of Allah's power..
What helps us is the LIVING miracle of the Qur'an given
to Muhammad, pbuh, Today we have this miracle in every
Muslim home. Read it. Try to understand it. Translations are
available in all languages. Talk to an authentic scholar.
Read the hadith connected to it.
The Qur;an will change your life, inshAllah, just as it
changed the savages of Arabia into the most civilized people
in history. Umar, the enemy of Islam, became the greatest
Caliph and scholar of Islam. Ayesha, a little girl, became
the teacher of humanity. [Allah be pleased with them.]
There is no place in Islam for back biting and slander. Do
not try to uncover the private lives of Muslims through
gossip and back biting. A personal attack, even if true, is
back biting. A personal attack which is not true is slander.
The masjid is a place for Islamic unity, compassion and
caring for each other.
No attempts to uncover people's private lives should be
tolerated. All people sin. No one is perfect.
Stand against the oppressors, the occupiers, the Zionists,
the imperialists and the agents who support them.
Social Catastrophe : Pakistani Society on the brink.
Munir Khalili is one of the best Pakistani writers today
using the Urdu language.. He writes so well that it is a
pleasure just to read it [if you know Urdu]
The content is important. He traces the process by which
Pakistan's way of life is being undermined by insidious
influences linked to social and sexual corruption. Pakistan
is an upwardly mobile society but owing to a variety of
causes influences which are undermining the family system
and the moral basis of society are eroding the entire
structure of Pakistan.
A Muslim society must adhere closely to the teachings of
Prophet Muhammad, pbuh. If the teachings are ignored, or
observed only verbally, such a society rapidly falls apart.
Khalili does not mince his words. The situation is dire and
even the religious parties are engrossed more in politics
than in social reform, he says.
New Massacre by Assad in Damascus suburb. US air force too

Dr. Dhafir Helped Iraqi Orphans. He got 22 years for
This is What USA did to Iraq.
by Sis. Karin Friedemann
I was very honored to have met with Dr. Rafil Dhafir on
Saturday August 15, 2015 at the Federal Medical Center
prison in Devens, Massachusetts. Dr. Dhafir is the founder
of the former Islamic charity, Help the Needy, which
supported orphans in Iraq during the brutal post-Gulf War
time when Iraqis were literally starving to death. Even
though Christian organizations were also accused of breaking
the sanctions on Iraq, Dr. Dhafir, now 67, was criminally
charged for running an unauthorized charity and sentenced to
22 years in prison, 13 of which he has already served. His
current release date is April 26, 2022. He has been at
Federal Medical Center at Devens, MA for the past four
years, I just learned. I decided to pop by for a visit.
For those wanting some background information on the charity
doctor's case, I recommend:
http://www.dhafirtrial.net/about-the-case/dhafir-sentencing-tatement/ where he proclaimed:
"The day will come when people will realize what we did in
managing HTN. They will realize that this is the way a
relief NGO should be run, selflessly, by dedicated people
who will not milk it, work tirelessly and frugally,
literally saving every cent that they receive and spend it
only for its intended use and on top of that give their own
money to facilitate its functions...
"After learning that the government had illegally spied on
our most intimate lives, I told my wife that I feel like a
naked man walking along Main Street. She in return told me
that she feels like she was in a fish bowl. I will never
forget that day when she was, in this court, describing how
she was attacked by over 80 agents with guns to her head
threatening and terrorizing her, some heartless people from
the government were laughing and giggling in the back of
this court. My Quran tells me about these people "Those who
were wicked used to laugh at those who were righteous. And
whenever they passed by them, used to wink at each other in
mockery. And when they returned to their people, they would
return jesting. And whenever they saw them, they would say,
"Behold! These are the people truly astray!" But they have
not been sent as keepers over them. But on this Day the
righteous will laugh at the wicked. On throne of dignity
they will command. Will not the wicked have been paid back
for what they did?"
In a Dec. 18, 2006 letter to author Katherine Hughes, Dr.
Rafil A. Dhafir wrote about his previous incarceration in
CMU Terre Haute:
"No one seems to know about this top-secret operation until
now. It is still not fully understood.The order came from
the Attorney General himself. The staff here is struggling
to make sense of the whole situation. There are 16 of us,
all Muslims but two, with one non-Arab Muslim. We are housed
in what we are told was the holding area for those on death
row!!!!! We are told this is an experiment, so the whole
concept is evolving on a daily basis."
My visit with Dr. Dhafir was brief, under one hour, but
great. He looks waaaaay better than I imagined he would look
after so much time. In fact he looks better than most of the
other inmates half his age. Whatever his health problems
are, he comes across as a strong person, and with sound and
I was not able to press for a lot of details and he seemed
like he didn't want to be a complainer, so he only briefly
explained that he had been sent to SHU for no reason, in the
past, and that he had filed complaints. And now the prison
is claiming that they have no paperwork or documents about
his complaint that he submitted. He is determined to keep
complaining. I am not clear on the details of who he is
going to complain to about his original complaint being
"lost." It sounded like he had legal representation handling
that. I did not ask, and he did not offer any information as
to whether he had fears for his physical safety or if his
main fear was being sent again to SHU.
There was some general discussion of the thin line between
killing people and medical neglect. He said the prison
doctor was coming to work drunk and nobody was reporting
him. The place is run by incompetents. There is one prisoner
there who is 100 years old. People in wheelchairs. As a
doctor he feels very frustrated about how much better this
medical institution should be run and organized.
Dhafir last got a visit two weeks ago. He is allowed 8
visits per month. Visits are not timed. So whether you
arrive in the morning and stay all day or you stay for one
hour, it's counted as one visit. The visit took place in a
noisy and crowded room full of other prisoners visiting
their loved ones, and some snack machines.
He comes across as very sincere and polite as well as
religiously observant. A mutual friend who spent time with
him at CMU recommended to me to seek him out for spiritual
knowledge. I will definitely keep that in mind for future
conversation topics. I told him everyone who knows him is
very fond of him.
The ONLY community that Black gays belong to is the gay
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]
Transvestite Laverne Cox, from the show Orange is the New
Black, and very gay Vogue's Editor-at-large Andre Leon
Talley were on Andy Cohen's "Watch What Happens" show. The
topic was 17 year old African-American girl Amandla
Stenberg, who accused Kylie Jenner of hijacking Black
culture awhile back. Jenner wore cornrows on one side of her
head. White fashion magazine Mademoiselle referred to it as
an extraordinary hairstyle. There was a serious backlash by
Black women on Twitter.
Stenberg's claim to fame was being in the movie Hunger Games
and Jaden Smith's (son of Will Smith) prom date. The media
has been stoking a feud between Stenberg and Jenner.
However, during the course of the conversation on this Andy
Cohen show, the two Black guests did not understand Stenberg
or her message. Toward the end of the segment, Andy Cohen
labeled this outspoken teenager a "Jackhole of the Day!"
There was a backlash as a result. Andy Cohen is one of the
biggest, gayest instigators in Hollywood as evident when
hosting his many "Housewives" reality show reunions.
Neither Laverne Cox or Andre Talley defended this outspoken
young lady, at that moment! The reason is very apparent.
Black LGBT have never been members of the Black community,
only infiltrators. They only know their queer struggles and
their pain! Since the Black community has moral issues with
homosexuality, Black gays feel like outcasts. They are not
going to fully identify with any racial strife.
Those of us old enough to remember, see this latest Kylie
Jenner insult as no different than White actress Bo Derek
wearing cornrows in the movie "10." In spite of the fact
that Black actresses like Cicely Tyson had worn cornrows in
some of her roles, years earlier, Bo Derek caused White
girls to go into a frenzy over getting cornrows, in the late
1970s. These African hairstyles are thousands of years old,
folks! It is the lie that Columbus discovered America when
there were already people living and thriving here!
Extraordinary hairstyles, yes! But, new? No!
(Note: Laverne Cox has been very apologetic since this
broadcast and regrets "his" response or lack thereof.)
Who is Funding #Black Lives Matter?
Two weeks ago, According to a caller on the popular New York
City local cable show Community Cop, Zionist billionaire
George Soros is funding Black Lives Matter. Co-host Michael
Greys stated that he was not surprised because they are an
ad hoc group that has smothered the efforts of the organic
Black grassroots organizations to network and organize
He also stated that Black Lives Matter was founded by Black
LGBTQ! He continued on saying that many true Black activists
have never heard of Black Lives Matter and yet, this group
has been able to hijack the political debates of
Presidential aspirants at speaking events.
The LGBTQ group have always been able to slither through
society by riding the coat tails of Black human rights
activists. This is another case and it must be stopped in
its tracks. Racial oppression is completely different from
any difficulties homosexuals face. For one, you cannot hide
your skin color but, you can be a so-called closeted gay. I
am very sure that there are Black gays aware of racial
injustice and who have experienced it but, their goal, as
activists, is to promote their immoral lifestyle.
The ultimate agenda of the Black LGBTQ is to push their gay
issues to the fore-front. They sit around having mastermind
discussions over these agendas and how accomplish their goal
surreptitiously. As people of African-descent, who morally
oppose homosexuality, we cannot align ourselves with these
Black "civil rights" LGBTQ groups. It will destroy our true
movement against racial oppression in America!
Caitlin Jenner vs Serena Williams?
Caitlin (Bruce) Jenner has been receiving so many accolades
you'd think "he" (still male down there) saved an entire
village from a drone attack! Instead, vehicular manslaughter
charges are still pending against him from a car accident
this past Spring. But, you would never know it. Even racist
macho stalwart Mark Wahlberg commented on how stunning Bruce
Jenner looks as a woman! And Jenner is eating up all of the
attention. He has only been a woman for five minutes and is
already being accused of diva behavior!
This had controversial comedian D.L. Hughley baffled. On the
Sway satellite radio show, Hughley questioned why people are
claiming how sexy Bruce Jenner looks as a woman while at the
same time claim that Serena Williams looks like a man. White
supremacy and sexism play a role in these unjust critiques
of Serena Williams.
There is a very fine line between male chauvinism and male
homosexuality. Both types of male have always thrived off of
women's insecurities. While the male chauvinist believes
that a woman's place is in the kitchen and the bedroom, LGBT
men have always influenced a woman's self-image by
controlling her mind. Gay or not, they still have to be the
rooster in the hen house even if they have no sexual
interest in the hen!
Something to make you think.
The irrefutable arguments which will appeal to every sane
Pakistan - Islamic or Secular?
As received by Muhammad Zaheer Bawany who received it from
Shujauddin Shaikh [Tanzeeme Islami, Karachi, Pakistan]
In the midst of confusion, if one compares the argument of
both Islamic and Secular idealists, and understands both
concepts, the pathway to reality becomes quite clear. The
secular argument focuses more on the personality and
appearance of Quaid e Azam. If their argument is probed, the
most significant point is the following quote of Quaid e
"You may belong to any religion or caste or creed, that has
nothing to do with the business of the state.." There is
also one more speech of Quaid e Azam in which he talks about
Hindus seizing to be Hindus and Muslims seizing to be
Muslims, but not in a religious sense, rather in political
sense. Other than these two quotes, secularists focus on
Quaid e Azam's personality. He was educated in England, his
English was much better than Urdu, he wore an English suit,
and such other things.But it is to be noted, that Allama
Iqbal, the greatest Pan-Islamic philosopher of the same time
was educated in the West, he spoke exceptionally fluent
English, he usually wore western suits as well, but at the
same time he called for the rule of the Quran. So it would
not be analytically convincing to label Quaid eAzam secular
because of his appearance or seeming way of living. Some
Pakistani liberals even go to the extent of saying that
Quaid e Azam created Pakistan so that his party could get
seats in a parliament, or Quaid e Azam never wanted
Pakistan, it was rather a mistake of the situation. It would
be extremely offensive to the five million Muslims who gave
their lives for Pakistan, when we say that Pakistan and the
two-nation theory is not valid anymore.
Even if one does not agree with the pro-Islamic argument and
focuses on unbiased research, it is counted, specifically
according to the research of Mr. Ayub Baig Mirza, that
Quaid-e-Azam gave 115 speeches in which he perceived
Pakistan as an Islamic state out of which, 101 are prior to
independence and 14 are post-independence. In many other
addresses, Quaid e Azam clarified that every movement has an
ideological foundation and its visionary, and for Pakistan's
movement, Islam is the ideology and Allama Iqbal is the
visionary. Pro-Islamic analysts have also concluded, that
Quaid e Azam's speech of 11th August, which is widely
rejoiced by secularists, was actually given by him to
reassure Non-Muslim Pakistanis of their rights and place in
the society, and it did not mean to label Pakistan as a
secular nation. The famous excerpt from 11th August address
is as follows:
"We are all citizens and equal citizens of one state.... Now
I think we should keep that in front of us as our ideal, and
you will find that in course of time Hindus would cease to
be Hindus and Muslims would cease to be Muslims, not in the
religious sense, because that is the personal faith of each
individual, but in the political sense as citizens of the
After this speech was given, secularists spread the word
that Quaid e Azam wants Pakistan to be a secular state.
Factually, since then all of this confusion had started. But
to clarify the matter, Quaid e Azam himself said on 25th
January 1948 that
"I could not understand the section of the people that
deliberately wanted to spread mischief and propaganda that
the constitution of Pakistan would not be made on the basis
This quote folds and dumps the confusion in the bin.
Pro-Islamic writers and columnists have debated that Quaid e
Azam's speech of 11th August was actually meant to relieve
the anxiety of the minorities residing in Pakistan caused by
the religious conflicts in the sub-continent. It was not
meant to describe the system that was to be implemented in
Pakistan, and this is ascertained by the speech of Quaid e
Azam in 25th January 1948, in which he clarifies what system
Pakistan will run on. There is a copious amount of quotes of
Quaid e Azam that elucidate the fact that Pakistan was
created for Muslims to live their life in accordance to
Islamic principles, morals and ethics. Not only this, but
also create their own system of governance, in the light of
Quran, so that the world has something different to follow
other than the systems of the West, which have ruined the
economic circumstances of the world (as clarified by Quaid e
Azam in his last speech). During his address to the Usmania
University, Deccan India, Quaid e Azam was asked what an
"Islamic" republic is. He defined it in the following
"In Islam ultimate obedience belongs to God alone. The only
way to follow the guidance is through Quran. Islam does not
preach obedience to a king, parliament, person or an
institution. The Islamic government means rule of the Quran.
And how can you establish the rule of the Quran without an
Quaid-e-Azam, address to the students of the Usmania
University, Deccan, India, August, 1941.
Two things that are illuminated by this answer would either
anger the secular elements of Pakistan, or convince them to
accept Pakistan as an Islamic state. One, that this quote
reflects the fact thatQuaid e Azam, at an individual level,
was neither secular minded, nor unaware of Islamic
His description of an Islamic state is no different than
what any Islamic scholar would perceive it to be, and his
knowledge upon it shows that Quaid e Azam was actually a
knowledgeable Muslim. And the second message given by this
quote, through the last sentence, teaches exactly why
Pakistan was really created. "How can you establish the rule
of Quran without an independent state?". The Great Leader,
as "Quaid e Azam" would be translated to in English, wanted
the rule of Quran to be established in Pakistan; and through
this it becomes lucid that the struggle for Pakistan is
still an abandoned mission, which can only be completed
after the laws of Quran and Sunnah are implemented. Rather
surprising is the fact that some groups find it odd when
Quran being implemented in Pakistan is talked about, whereas
The Objectives Resolution, the foundation of Pakistan's
constitution, states that no law will be enforced that
contradicts to the teachings of Quran.
Plenty of other speeches of Quaid e Azam indicate towards an
Islamic system. A few of them are as follows:
"Pakistan not only means freedom and independence, but also
the Muslim Ideology that has to be preserved that has come
to us as a precious gift and treasure."Quaid-e-Azam,
Chittagong, March, 1948.
"Come forward as servants of Islam, organize the people
economically, socially, educationally and politically and I
am sure that you will be a power that will be accepted by
everybody." Quaid-e-Azam, Presidential Address at the All
India Muslim League, Lahore March 23, 1940.
"You have to stand guard over the development and
maintenance of Islamic democracy, Islamic social justice and
the equality of manhood in your own native soil. With faith,
discipline and selfless devotion to duty, there is nothing
worthwhile that you cannot achieve." Quaid-e-Azam, address
to the officers and men of the 5th Heavy and 6th Light
Regiments in Malir, Karachi, February 21, 1948.
"You are only voicing my sentiments, and the sentiments of
millions of Musalmans (Muslims) when you say that Pakistan
should be based on pure foundations of social justice and
Islamic Socialism, not other -isms" Quaid e Azam, March
"We should have a State in which we could live and breathe
as free men and which we could develop according to our own
lights and culture and where principles of Islamic social
justice could find free play." Quaid-e-Azam, address to
Civil, Naval, Military and Air Force Officers of Pakistan
Government, Karachi, October 11, 1947.
These quotes give an idea about the thought process of Quaid
e Azam while leading the independence movement, and also
confirm that the destined state ideology of Pakistan was
always meant to be Islam. In actuality, Quaid e Azam himself
called people who support secularism in Pakistan
"mischievous and propagandists" (referring to his address on
25th January 1948).
Another argument that is presented by the liberal analysts
of Pakistan is that Allama Iqbal had absolutely no role in
the creation of Pakistan, mainly because he died before the
passing of Pakistan Resolution, also known as Lahore
Resolution. This again, is an insult to history. Keeping
aside the fact that almost every Pakistani recognizes
Iqbal's vital role in the creation of Pakistan, it is still
necessary to clear the mystery. After the Pakistan
Resolution was passed and was presented in Minto Park,
Quaid-e-Azam visited Allama Iqbal's shrine with one of the
members of the Paksitan movement, and stated if Iqbal was
here, he would be very happy to see that i have done what
was ordained to me.
