Syed Qutb was one of the giants of Islamic scholarship, with
the added virtues of personal character and self sacrifice.
August 29 was the anniversary of the day when, though
defenseless, he accepted martyrdom rather than submit to the
tyrant of Egypt. He taught Islam as the religion of
revolution, and sunnah as a dynamic movement, not a
Read his Tafseer of the Qur'an and his teachings on social
and economic justice. The tyrant of Egypt knew that if
Muslims understood the teachings of Syed Qutb, tyranny would
have to end.
The biggest mistake Ikhwan al Muslimoon made was to remove
the teachings of Syed Qutb from their agenda. They wanted to
be part of the establishment. Instead they got General Sisi.
Study of Syed Qutb's writings should be required reading to
understand why our mosques are so backward and are
generating secularism rather than the way of Muhammad, pbuh.

The Deception of Waseela in Ismāʿīlīsm
by Akbar Khoja
The mention of the word waseela in the Quran has been a
major excuse for
Nizārī-Ismāʿīlīs calling upon,
and seeking help of their Hazar Imam instead of the Almight
Allah (swt). This is a concept drilled into their minds by
the Ismāʿīlī missionaries.
Ismāʿīlīs themselves have never laid
their hands upon a copy of the the Qur'an. A vast majority
of Nizārī-Ismāʿīlī homes are
devoid of even a single copy of the Qur'an.
Occurences of Waseela in the Quran
For addressing the issue of waseela, we will start by
looking the the verse of waseela in the Qur'ān in Surah
Al-Mā'idah (The Table Spread), Chapter 5, Verse 35:
O you who believe! Do your duty to Allah (swt) and fear Him.
Seek the means
(الْوَسِيhَةَ) of approach to Him, and strive
hard in His Cause as much as you can. So that you may be
There is another verse in the Qur'ān which also uses
the word waseela in Surah Al-'Isrā' (The Night
Journey), Chapter 17, Verse 57. However, to establish the
context, let us examine the prior Verse 56 which mentions
Say (O Muhammad SAW) : Call on those whom you assert besides
Him : they have neither the power to remove your troubles
from you nor to change them."
The above means that asking anyone other than Allah (swt) is
not allowed, as Allah (swt) says here. Look at the word
means to make duʿāʾ. Allah (swt) says that He
has powers to accept duʿāʾ.
Relationship Between Dua and Waseela
With the context now established having read Verse 56, you
will be amazed to see the next verse where word waseela is
used by Allah (swt) in Verse 57.
Those whom they call upon, themselves seek the means of
(الْوَسِيhَةَ) to their Lord, as to which of them
should be the nearest: they hope for His Mercy and fear His
Wrath: for the Wrath of thy Lord is something to take heed
Allah (swt) explains the meaning of waseela in this verse
after waseela is used, as to which of them is nearest.
It is clear that here Allah (swt) is not talking about
idols, or trees, sun, stars. These are humans Allah (swt)
Allah (swt) is talking about Righteous people like Jesus
(pbuh), Maryam (ra), Uzair (ra), etc., and in current
senerio Ali (ra). Allah (swt) says: "They hope for His Mercy
and fear His Wrath" What is waseela of these righteous
people? Think about it. Who did these people make
duʿāʾ to? Of course to Allah (swt). Allah
(swt) also says that they seek waseela as to which of them
is near to Allah (swt). Therefore waseela is something that
brings one near to Allah (swt).
"Seek to Allah (swt) Al-Wassilah" is asking the nearness to
Allah (swt) with good deeds (your salah, understanding the
Qur'ān, piety, patience, charity, etc. and that which
pleases him. Understanding Quran will improve your
relationship with Allah (swt).
These were the waseela for these Righteous people, their
awareness of afterlife, their knowledge of Allah (swt) and
their good deeds.
All these righteous people always asked directly from Allah
(swt) Quran is full of references that duʿāʾ
should be made only towards Allah (swt). See the below verse
excerpt from Surah Ghāfir (The Forgiver), Chapter 40,
And your Lord says: Call upon Me, I will answer you."
This is clear command of Allah (swt) to make
duʿāʾ only to Him Duʿāʾ is
specifically mentioned by Allah (swt) to be made to Him
alone. There are hundreds of ayats in Quran which commands
us to make Duʿāʾ to Allah (swt).
Intersecssion (Shafat) is other thing that someone else
makes Duʿāʾ for us. Angels make
Duʿāʾ for us prophet make
Duʿāʾ for us or ask forgiveness for us are
acceptable. We ask Allah (swt) to bless us in the name of
these beloved is acceptable, but to make
Duʿāʾ directly to them will make 40:60
violate. So to interpret waseela cannot violate 40:6o of
Quran. Ismalis directly make Duʿāʾ to Aga
Khan that's wrong. Allah (swt) says in Qur'ān in Surah
Al-'Aĥqāf (The Wind-Curved Sandhills), Chapter 46,
Verses 5 and 6:
And who is more astray than he who invokes besides Allah
(swt) those who will not respond to him until the Day of
Resurrection, and they, of their invocation, are unaware.
And when the people are gathered [that Day], they [who were
invoked] will be enemies to them, and they will be deniers
of their worship.
Allah (swt) says they are unaware of your
duʿāʾ. Ali (ra) is unaware of you making
duʿāʾ to him, and he can never hear you. And
then Allah (swt) says they will be your enemies on on
Judgement day and will deny their worship. So this should be
clear from Quran that Duʿāʾ is only for Allah
(swt). Ali (ra) will be our enemy on the Day of Judgement if
we make duʿāʾ to him.
Help in worldly matters is something different. Prophet
(pbuh) was helped in his mission by all the companions
including Ali (ra), Bilal (ra), and all the companions
helped him. Bilal's (ra) voice was heard by Prophet (pbuh)
during the night journey. So can we say "Ya Bilal Madad"? No
we cannot. In worship, we only seek help from Allah (swt).
In worldly matters my co-worker helps me and I help him,
this is not duʿāʾ of worship. If Prophet
(pbuh) asked help from companions then this does not means
that Prophet was making duʿāʾ to them.
Duʿāʾ is your relationship with Allah (swt).
This Duʿāʾ of worship should be exclusively
for Allah (swt).
Kodungallur Mosque, India's first, was built by Prophet's
companion Malik Bin Dinar in 629AD
[via Br. Jimmy, Texas]
Kodungallur, Kerala: One will find nothing unusual about
this place of worship for Muslims as one drives past this
town in central Kerala, just 30km north of Kochi. But it's
when you go in and chat up with the volunteers and
office-bearers that the enormity of its legacy actually hits
For Cheraman Jumah Masjid in this town, also known by its
anglicised name Cranganore, is not just the oldest in India
and the subcontinent but one built during the lifetime of
Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) in AD629 by an Arab propagator of
Islam, Malik Bin Dinar.
It is also testimony to two facts. One, Islam came to India
long before the Mughals came in from the northwest. Two, the
entry of Islam was smooth and Muslims enjoyed the full
patronage of the locals irrespective of their religions - a
facet that is still visible and cherished here.
This mosque stands proud with two other landmarks of
Kodungallur, also known as Muziris. The first is the Saint
Thomas Church, also said to be among the first in India
built by the Apostle himself around 52AD. He had arrived
here in India and the church has some holy relics from the
olden days. The second is the Bhagavathy Temple of Cheran
ruler Chenguttavan, also known as Vel Kelu Kuttuvan, around
In fact, in a manifestation of India's cultural syncretism,
many non-Muslims are its devotees and hold "Vidhyarambham",
or the commencement of education ceremony for their children
at this mosque. During Ramadan, iftar offerings are often
made by the non-Muslim communities in the area.
There are several legends surrounding the Cheraman Jumah
mosque. As one goes: It was built under the patronage of the
last Chera king, Cheraman Perumal, who is also believed to
have abdicated his throne and embraced Islam upon meeting
the Prophet at Makkah.
But before he died at Dhofar in Oman due to some illness on
the way back to India, he wrote some letters asking the
local rulers, to whom he had handed over his empire, to
extend all help they could to some Arab merchants who were
planning to visit India.
One such merchant, Malik Bin Dinar, was given permission by
local chieftains to build Islamic places of worship around
the area. The mosque accordingly is called the Cheraman
Mosque in recognition of the help extended by the last Chera
This apart, Malik Bin Dinar, who was also a "sahaba" or a
companion of the Prophet, was the mosque's first Gazi,
succeeded by his nephew Habib Bin Malek. Both Habib Bin
Malek and his wife are entombed at the Cheraman Juma
The original mosque itself has undergone several
renovations. The oral traditions have it that the first such
refurbishment took place in the 11th century and again some
300 years later. In the modern era a revamp was done in
1974, after which a reconstruction happened in 2001.
But all along, the sanctum sanctorum has been preserved.
Minarets and a dome are also modern-day additions. Yet,
despite the renovations, a striking amalgam of different
cultures and religions is in full play at the grand old
From some angles, it can even pass off as a temple.
At the centre of this striking blend of several
architectural styles and practices is a traditional
Kerala-style lamp hanging from the ceiling. This lamp also
has inscriptions in old Malayalam script Vattezhuthu.
In true style of temples in the south, the mosque also has a
pond. Then the minber, or the pulpit from where the Imam
delivers sermons, has some intricate carvings and lacquer
work, which is again unique to southern India.
The mosque also has a small museum. At the centre, inside a
glass casing, is a miniature replica of the mosque as it
stood around 350 years ago. There are also some other
artifacts from the times gone by, such as the redstones that
were used to as building material in sizes uncommon today,
and an ancient sewage channel

The Anniversary of Rabaa and Sisi's Genocide: US supports
this mass murderer.
General Sisi's military coup claimed that it was put in
effect to answer the calls of the masses who gathered in
Tahrir square on the 30th of June 2013. The 30th of June
protests indeed won the sympathy of the Egyptian army,
pre-inclined in their support of the previously deposed
regime of Husni Mubarak. Mobs of armed protestors had
torched the Brotherhood's headquarters, killing and injuring
scores while tens of thousands surrounded the Presidential
Palace, many of whom were armed with shields, clubs,
home-made handguns and Molotov grenades. Huge
pro-legitimacy rallies came after the 3rd of July coup,
stationed in the Rabaa al-Adawiya and al-Nahda squares of
Cairo. These rallies were, however, characterised by strict
civilian order, providing demonstrators with meals in
Ramadan, full access to television, internet, an array of
businesses and vendors, areas for prayer, segregation
facilities, fully-fledged speaker and event programmes,
organised security and play areas for children with bouncy
castles and swimming pools.
Unaffected by the demands but exasperated at the resilience
of these sit-in protests, coup-government security officials
began their bloody campaign. During the dawn prayer of the
8th July, the republican guards of the coup government
opened head-directed fire with explosive ammunition at
protestors as they were praying, killing 42 individuals and
injuring around 500 others. Al-Sisi then requested that
his supporters demonstrate on the 26th of July to provide
"authorisation and an order" for security forces to practice
'legitimate' brutality against the protestors and force
their dispersion. The general did not step back to
anticipate this authorisation nor was he interested in
getting approval for what was to come.
The general's conviction of "violence and terrorism"
unfolded into his will to confront what was "anticipated".
His arrogance and insistence on quelling a spring that would
doom his feat a failure pushed him to a second major
massacre after his 48-hour decree that was issued before his
supporters had even gathered! The timing was again dawn,
this time on the 27th of July. After the 48 hour ultimatum,
security forces stormed Rabaa al-Adawiya, enforcing a 'shoot
to kill' policy, murdering more than 100 protestors and
injuring scores. Al-Sisi had escalated the situation from an
illegal coup to a fully-waged military war on the Egyptian
populace. International response was, however, categorised
by weakness and utter disdain. The British Foreign Ministry
at the time curbed its condemnation to the words "now is the
time for dialogue."
When it became clear that his Pharaoh-like demeanour will
only arouse enthusiasm and further defiance, he, with his
coup government took their crimes to a level Egypt has not
seen the likes of nor indeed has the entire world. Egyptian
forces brutally stormed the two sites Rabaa and al-Nahda,
assisted by bulldozers, snipers and helicopter fire,
dispersing the two sit-ins with all what al-Sisi had in his
depository. Hours on end of indiscriminate fire resulted in
the murder of well over 3000 protestors (some speak of
13,000 martyrs) and the injuring of a total innumerable.
Security forces went on to blaze the Rabaa makeshift
hospital that still contained causalities, some of whom were
still alive in order to destroy any remaining evidence.7 The
successive "Day of Rage" in response to the Rabaa massacre
turned into an evening of bloodshed when security forces
continued their onslaught onto Cairo's Ramsis-Square,
killing more than 100 civilians and forcing them to set up
makeshift hospitals in Al-Fateh mosque. Amidst a swarm of
outlaws, security forces barraged the mosque with bursts of
gun-fire and then stormed the mosque in defiance to all
religious and international customs, severely beating those
who had taken refuge inside.
The 14th August marks a year to the day of the massacres of
Rabaa al-Adawiya and al-Nahda squares where many thousands
of people were massacred and their corpses burnt.
Kenith Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch says
that "Egyptian Forces carried out one of the world's largest
killings of demonstrators in a single day in recent
history." He further condemns the current regime in the most
direct terms: "this wasn't merely a case of excessive force
or poor training. It was a violent crackdown planned at the
highest levels of the Egyptian government. Many of the same
officials are still in power in Egypt, and have a lot to
In reality it is not just them who have a lot to answer for,
but also all the financers and supporters. On 11th August
2014, just three days before the first anniversary of this
tragedy, chief traitor and current president Abdel-Fatah
al-Sisi was in Saudi Arabia on official state visit during
which he was awarded the King Abdulaziz Necklace, the
highest and most prestigious medal in Saudi Arabia. The
Saudi Kingdom has been one of Al-Sisi's biggest supporters,
reportedly giving in the region of at least $12 billion in
aid in support of his crippling economy and to help his
military campaign against "Islamic extremists." He

This is the damning indictment for the one who commits this
heinous crime and it is made infinitely worse by the fact
that the succeeding verse does not outline any type of
repentance that can atone for this deed. How is it therefore
that still, until today, people are supporting this proven
killer with excuses as lowly as "we want stability" or "what
made them go there?" or "they were blocking the roads"? The
believers in Egypt should rest assured that even if they are
sentenced to death in their droves, imprisoned indefinitely
or suppressed of their right to oppose, Muslims around the
globe will converge their efforts in their support, on all
fronts. The people of Egypt, for their sacrifices should be
leant nothing less, after all, and as recent events have
confirmed, other than a sound leadership in Egypt, the whole
Muslim world will remain in tatters.

Addressing the Pakistani community at Waldheim Town, London,
he said that India's every day firing across the border
could trigger a war between two nuclear powers any moment.
He said it was the duty of the world community, especially
the United Nations to stop India's provocations.
Sirajul Haq said that the Muslims were the most wronged
people in the world today. Islam, he said, was the religion
of peace and brotherhood and the Islamic teachings stood for
the wellbeing of humanity. However, the Muslims were being
killed like fodder in different parts of the world yet they
were being blamed for extremism and terrorism and termed as
threat to peace. He said the world community should end this
discrimination against the Muslims by meeting the demands of
justice and they should be allowed to live in an atmosphere

Modi in India was the prime cause of unrest in the region.
India wanted to plunge the region into war while US and
Israel were at her back, he added.
The US wanted to build India as regional policeman; however
Pakistan could not accept that. India, on her part, could
not digest the China Pak Economic Corridor and was making
every effort to sabotage the project.
India's unprovoked firing must be given befitting response
Lahore, Aug. 28; Deputy chief of the Jamaat e Islami, Hafiz
Muhammad Idrees, has said that India would not stop
aggressive activities unless she was given a befitting reply
from this side.
Firing by Indian forces at the working boundary has become a
routine and innocent people have been martyred and injured
while the UN Mission have not been able to stop the Indian
unprovoked attacks, he said while addressing a big Friday
congregation at Mansoora mosque.
The JI deputy chief said that had Pakistan not lost at
Tashkent, the 1965 war which she had won at the battle
field, India would not have dared to cast an evil eye on
this country now.
He said that as long as the armed forces waged Jehad and
were busy in the defense of the country and the nation, they
ruled over the hearts of the masses. However, if they
abandoned the duty of the defense of the borders and reached
the corridors of power, they would place their respect and
dignity at stake.
The JI central leader said the nation was ready to stand
shoulder to shoulder with their armed forces in any conflict
with the enemy and if India did not abandon her aggressive
designs, the nation was ready to repeat the history of 1965.
He said that the Defense Day would be celebrated with full
enthusiasm and zeal on September 6.
Hafiz Muhammad Idrees said that the JI had also decided to
observe Urdu Day on September 2. Seminars and rallies would
be staged demanding the urgent enforcement of the national
language. He said that the nations were identified by their
language, culture and way of life.
Besides, he said, the JI would be observing Hijab Day on
September 4 to renew the pledge that the western and Hindu
culture would not be tolerated in the country any more. On
this day, the women wing of the JI would hold rallies and
seminars to emphasize the importance of Hijab in Islam.

Rumor mongering is also going on that we want to impose

Sharia [Islamic Law] in particular hudud are imposed only in
an Islamic State or in a country controlled by mujahideen.

Officials: Zionist Pressure on Siddique is part of
I am writing this letter in support of Dr. Kaukab
Please consider the following:
In 1983 AIPAC (American Israeli Public Affairs Committee)
distributed to university students belonging to Hillel (a
Jewish campus organization) and university faculty around
the country, a ten-page questionnaire on political activism
on campus—specifically of faculty. Number eight on its
list of ten suggested responses to anyone anti Zionism or
seemingly pro Palestinian was: "Attempt to prevent."
In 1982 The Berkeley Graduate (a monthly news magazine at
the University of California at Berkeley) published several
articles critical of Israeli Prime Minister Manchem Begin
and his government's policies. The magazine's office soon
began to receive threatening phone calls. A demand was made
that an oversight committee be formed for the purpose of
reviewing articles before publication. (Censorship).
Ultimately the news magazine's funding was cut by 55% and a
change in accounting rules made it so the magazine could no
When John D'Anna, editor of the Arizona Daily Wildcat at the
university of Arizona wrote an editorial criticizing Israeli
Defense Minister Ariel Sharon's involvement in the massacre
of Palestinian civilians at the Sabra and Shatila camps in
Lebanon, he began to receive hate mail. The director of the
local B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation accused D'Anna of
inflaming passions and drawing conclusions on half- truths.
He was forced to write a letter of apology. Nevertheless,
twenty local Jewish groups wrote to the university president
demanding his resignation or that he be fired for his
"anti-Semitic editorial." If he was not fired by noon the
following Monday, the group would tell Wildcat advertisers
that the newspaper was spreading hatred.
Are we still living in those times? Do we still need to
worry about organized efforts to staunch freedom of speech
when it comes to anything critical of Zionists and their
strong-arm tactics? Perhaps.
We have a recent example in the case of the Palestinian Dr.
Steven Salaita and his experience with the University of
Illinois Urbana-Champaign. In response to Israel's brutal
war against the Palestinian people during the summer of
2014, he tweeted his honest, anguish-filled feelings. This
occurred at the time he was just about to be hired for a
tenured position at the university. In response to his
comments, major donors to the university threatened to pull
their funding if Dr. Salaita was hired. In fear of losing
money the university reversed its decision and did not hire
Dr. Salaita filed suit. The university said he had no case,
but recently a federal judge in Chicago ruled that his
lawsuit against the University of Illinois for firing him
over tweets critical of Israel, can go forward. His case has
become widely known and the university's reputation has
It is quite understandable that Dr. Siddique responded to
Pam Geller the way that he did. She is a woman who has
launched a personal war against Islam and Muslims. She's
even gone so far as to organize a Prophet Muhammad (peace be
upon him) cartoon drawing contest specifically to cause hurt
to millions of Muslim citizens of this country. How would
she respond to anyone holding a Holocaust cartoon drawing
contest? How would she feel about a Muslim citizen forging
an ongoing campaign against the Jewish people? Geller's

I could list many more examples of the attempt to staunch
freedom of speech when it comes to speaking out against
Zionists and Zionism.
Dr. Siddique is now confronting a Zionist machine set in
motion in the same vein as John D'Anna, of the Arizona Daily
Wildcat, the political magazine, The Berkeley Graduate, and
Dr. Steven Steven Salaita .
I'd hate to see Lincoln University follow in the footsteps
of the University of Illinois. Surely you can see that this
is quickly becoming an antiquated response. I'm hoping
Lincoln University, in light of it laudable history, would
not want to submit to suppressing free speech at the behest
of organized demands.
One last note: Dr. Siddique's "slut remark" concerning the
Bill Cosby accusers, was one of several possible reasons he
gave explaining why the accusers took so long to speak out.
It was not a reflection of how he views women. I have known
Dr. Kaukab Siddique for more than twenty years. In that time
I have always known him to be a man who calls for justice
through peaceful means and for the equality of all people no
matter their race or gender. I don't recognize this
characterization of him as one who has a low opinion of
women. One of the first books I read by him, The Struggle of
Muslim Women, promotes the liberation of Muslim women from
the tyranny of cultural oppression. His organization, Jamaat
al Muslimeen, is the only Islamic organization that I know
of that encourages Muslim women to assume leadership
positions. He has the utmost regard for women and their
I pray that you take the above in consideration when you
make any decisions concerning Dr. Kaukab Siddique.

Mistresses and Cosby.

Mistresses Used to Know There Place
New York City - Former NFL player Buster Barnett will
forever carry the burden of knowing that his affair led to
his wife's murder. On July 20th, Lisa Brown, mistress,
kidnapped McNair middle school teacher Sandra Barnett, wife.
The two women were in a Durango SUV registered to Buster
Barnett. Lisa Brown then, led Georgia police on a high speed
chase onto an Alabama highway, which is when Lisa Brown shot
and killed Sandra Barnett and then, herself. Lisa Brown was
49 years old and Sandra Barnett was 54 years old. Lisa Brown
has a history of emotional instability. She was already on
probation for having kidnapped her daughter in a custody
case she lost, in 2013.
There are so many dysfunctional attitudes the opposite sexes
have about each other. I am not sure if Sandra Barnett knew
about her husband's affair but, I do know that many women in
this society are raised by their mothers to accept this
behavior. It does not matter if they like it or not. We are
told to deal with it as best we can, especially if children
It used to be that the mistress took a back seat to the
wife, who was central in the husband's life. I remember an
interview where Oscar-winning actress Katherine Hepburn
discussed her 30 year affair with actor Spencer Tracy. He
was an Irish Catholic and would never seek a divorce from an
unhappy marriage but, his relationship with Hepburn was a
very open secret in Hollywood. However, when he died in
1967, Hepburn stated how she stayed to the back and out of
the public eye during the funeral because she knew that it
was his wife's time to be with her husband.
Because reality shows and Hollywood amorality, mistresses
and other sprites can stir up trouble and make money from
their fifteen minutes of fame. Of course, in Islam the blame
for adultery is on the adulterer male or female, too.
A few years ago, former NFL player Steve McNair's life was
taken by a mistress in a murder suicide. He was killed in
his sleep while napping at his mistresses apartment, which
he provided for her. No one knew of this affair.
Murder is not usually the worst thing to occur in these
relationships. Usually, the worst thing that could happen is
for these extra-marital affairs be made public and lead to
divorce proceedings. Marriage has never been the fabric of
any society that tells young boys that it women must save
themselves for marriage but, they themselves can fool around
with prostitutes until they want to settle down.
It is strange how people accuse the Gays of ruining marriage
in America. Up until slavery in America ended, White men who
could afford such a labor force, did not have to pay for sex

Bill Cosby Conspiracy Theory
As many people say, "Where there is smoke, there is fire."
These rape allegations against famed comedian Dr. Bill Cosby
are mounting as I write. All I can say is that hell hath no
fury like a woman scorned! Many of these women approached a
very married Cosby looking for career advancement. When they
received nothing in return for their "services" they claimed
he raped them.
This is a plausible scenario, especially since these
accusations are coming out 40+ years later. The latest rape
accusation took place in 2005. It is not easy to say or
describe the details of a sexual assault. There are people
who take such experiences to the grave!
He may or may not be guilty. But, I am very mindful that the
same Zionist media that wants to vilify Cosby continues to
protect the likes of Woody Allen, Roman Polanski, Charlie
Sheen, Elvis Presley, convicted pedophile Gary Glitter (The
"Hey" song), etc.
I was against singer R. Kelly from the time when he ran off
with 15 year old protege, the late Aaliyah, and married her
against her family's wishes. Then, of course, the sex tape
of him urinating on an obviously 14 year old girl that
surfaced a few years later! But, many of us in the Black
community supported him because the Polankis and Allens get
away with their crimes. Two wrongs don't make a right!
We should be very vocal against the support thrown at
Hollywood Jews who commit sex crimes, as well as people from
other groups. It has been merely Cosby's word against his
accusers' - a whopping 35 of them and counting! I remember
the 2005 accusations and interviews then.....silence.
These could all be cases of remorse after illicit sex. Many
men have been victimized by women who have cried rape out of
guilt for not being so-called good girls and caving in to
Women are compartmentalized by entitled, male chauvinists.
Men have the wife on the pedestal and then, there are their
mistresses, who are relegated to lower statuses. These women
aren't even given respectful labels by the very men with
whom they are having an extra-marital affair.
I am suspicious as to why Bill Cosby's TV shows have been
pulled after the TV show 7th Heaven, ironically a show about
a Christian minister and his family, was pulled. The actor
who played the minister, Stephen Collins, was recorded by
his ex-wife admitting to having had engaged in sexual
misconduct with underage girls, one being their babysitter.
They pulled 7th Heaven off TV, in 2014, and soon after this
was done the Bill Cosby rape story hit....again. If a White
actor has to lose his show then, a Black man will have to
suffer the same consequences. This seems to be the rationale
of the White racist mind.
This is the same tit for tat that the racist White media ran
back in 1994 when there was genocide in Eastern Europe by
the Serb-Croats against the Bosnian Muslims. Then, they dug
up Rwanda's "genocide."
Cosby may just be the victim of sour grapes or he may
actually be a rapist. I am standing back and want to see all
of the evidence. What I do know is that after having watched
television programs on BET or the 700 Club, years ago, with
an African person sitting alongside a White person, who she
claimed bought her freedom from an Arab slave trader in the
Sudan, I am reminded that people do LIE! Elaborate lies have
been created and spread like a virus.
That slavery in Sudan lie was destroyed, over ten years ago,
by the person who helped create it, John Garang, before his
2005 death in a helicopter crash.
It has been said that Cosby angered Jewish Hollywood bosses
by announcing that he was going around them to create a
channel of his just as Oprah had done. But, it didn't anger
Hollywood when he tried to buy NBC all of those times? I
guess, with NBC they had the power to tell him, "No." They
tried to stop Oprah but, either couldn't or they are trying
dig up dirt on her now. White America's support for Oprah
started waning when she threw her support behind Barack
Obama for President.

Ibrahim (as): The Imam of Nations
And (tell them, O Muhammad), when Ibrahim was tried
by his Lord with commands and he fulfilled them. (Allah
rewarded him and) told him, "Indeed, I will make you the
Imam, leader over the nations."
(Ibrahim) asked, "And (what about) my descendants?"
(Allah) told him, "My covenant does not include the
wrongdoers!" Q 2:124
There are both Righteous and Wrong-Doers among his
A Universal Symbol of Towheed
Prophet Ibrahim (as) is an Universal Symbol of:
Towheed, Oneness of Allah
He is the first of 124,000 who use the phrase:
Allah declared him the Imam of the World, An
Universal Leader. Q 2:124
Crucial Role of Patriarch Ibrahim (as)
Ibrahim (as) has a crucial role in the lives of
human beings in general and in the lives of believers in
Allah declared him as the Imam of Nations!
ۖ (Q 2:124)
Only those who believe benefits from his life and
his struggle. Allah, in no uncertain terms, told the human
beings "Allah does not honor the wrongdoers."
الظَّالِ¥ِينَ (Q 2:124)
The rituals of Hajj refreshes Patriarch Ibrahim's
(as) memory in our hearts and minds, connects us with the
rest of humanity, and commands us to rekindle it among the
human beings: "Proclaim Hajj among human beings ..." Q 22:27

Believers Honor Ibrahim (as)
We, the believers remember Ibrahim (as) daily and
offering him salutation during 5 daily Salat:
... Kama Salai-ta 'alaa Ibrahima wa 'alaa 'aale
Ibrahima, in-na-ka Hami-dun majeed.
... Kama barak-ta 'alaa Ibrahima wa 'alaa 'aale
Ibrahima, in-na-ka Hami-dun majeed.
Mission of Towheed
Ibrahim (as), the Patriarch, was born in the town of
Ur, in Mesopotamia, over 7,000 years or ago.
Allah does not mention any time period for any
Prophet in Quran.
Prophet Ibrahim (as) was the son of Aazer, a maker
of idols. His father, his family, his community, and the
king of the area, Namrood, were all engaged in Idol Worship.
Prophet Ibrahim (as) was sent to restore Towheed and
his journey was Towheed, worship of one God, Allah (swt).
He first challenged himself and struggled with the
question: " Who is the Lord?"
Then he challenged his father, his family, his
community, and eventually the king, Namrood. In Search of
Rabb, Lord: Rejects Worship of Heavenly Bodies: Stars
كَوْكَبً ۖ قَالَ
So when the night covered him [with darkness], he
saw a star. He said, "This is my lord." But when it set, he
said, "I like not those that disappear. " Q 6:76
And when he saw the moon rising, he said, "This is
my lord." But when it set, he said, "Unless my Lord guides
me, I will surely be among the people gone astray. " Q 6:77
In Search of Rabb, Lord: Rejects Worship of Heavenly Bodies:
And when he saw the sun rising, he said, "This is
my lord; this is greater." But when it set, he said, "O my
people, indeed I am free from what you associate with Allah.
He turned towards Allah and Rejected Shirk
Indeed, I have turned my face toward (the One who)
created the heavens and the earth, inclining toward truth,
and I am not of those who associate others with Allah. " Q
Ibrahim's Arguments against Shirk and against his community:
مُدْبِرِ نَ ﴿٥٧﴾
And We had certainly given Ibrahim his sound
judgment before, and We were of him well- Knowing.
When he said to his father and his people, "What are
these statues to which you are devoted?"
They said, "We found our fathers worshippers of
He said, "You were certainly, you and your fathers,
in manifest error.
They said, "Have you come to us with truth, or are
you of those who jest?"
He said, "[No], rather, your Lord is the Lord of the
heavens and the earth who created them, and I, to that, am
of those who testify.
And [I swear] by Allah, I will surely plan against
your idols after you have turned and gone away." Q 21:51-57
Other references: Q 26:70-82; 29:16-18, 24-25;
38:83-98; 6:74, 19:41-50
Preaches to his Community against Shirk
And his people argued with him. He said, "Do you
argue with me concerning Allah while He has guided me? And I
fear not what you associate with Him [and will not be
harmed] unless my Lord should will something. My Lord
encompasses all things in knowledge; then will you not
remember? Q 6:80
بِاللَّـ§ِ مَا لَمْ
بِالْأَم¨نِ ۖ إِن
And how should I fear what you associate while you
do not fear that you have associated with Allah that for
which He has not sent down to you any authority? So which of
the two parties has more right to security, if you should
know? Q 6:81
They who believe and do not mix their belief with
injustice - those will have security, and they
are [rightly] guided. Q 6:82
And that was Our [conclusive] argument which We gave
Ibrahim against his people. We raise by
degrees whom We will. Indeed, your Lord is Wise and Knowing.
Against Namrood and the Sceptics
وَأُمِيت¥ ۖ قَالَ
Have you not considered the one who argued with
Ibrahim about his Lord [merely] because Allah had given him
kingship? When Ibrahim said, "My Lord is the one who gives
life and causes death," he said, "I give life and cause
death." Ibrahim said, "Indeed, Allah brings up the sun from
the east, so bring it up from the west." So the disbeliever
was overwhelmed [by astonishment], and Allah does not guide
the wrongdoing people.Q 2:258
Cool Down O! Fire
They said, "Burn him and support your gods - if you
are to act." Q 21:68
King ordered to start fire, and when flames reaching
high ask Ibrahim to jump. Allah ordered the fire to cool
Allah said, "O fire, cool down and provide safety to
Ibrahim. " Q 21:69
And they intended for him harm, but We made them the
greatest losers. Q 21:70
God frustrated their plans
God frustrated their plans and saved Abraham (as).
"How the fire became cool we are not told. Timely
rain or a stormy hurricane might have
extinguished it. In any event God did bring about
circumstances, which led to Ibrahim's deliverance. There is
always an element of mystery in heavenly miracles; and the
manner of Ibrahim (as) being saved from the fire was indeed
a great miracle.
That Ibrahim (as) had been cast into the fire is
credited not only by the Jews, but also by the Eastern
Christians. 25th of the second Canun, or January being set
apart in the Syrian Calendar for the commemoration of the
event." (Hyde, De Rel. Vet Pers., p. 73)
Hijrah of Ibrahim (as)
Ibrahim (as) was 75 years old when God commanded him
for migration. "He journeyed from Ur (Mesopotamia) to Harran
and from there to Canaan, which God decreed to give to his

of Divine plan and design, all the great Prophets or their
followers, at one time or another, have to emigrate from

Marriage to Hajirah/Hagar (as)
Ibrahim (as) migrated from Ur with a few selected
members including his nephew Lot. They passed through Egypt.
The king was impressed by Ibrahim and offered some
presents and a royal lady by the name of Hagar to him.
Ibrahim (as) and Sarah did not have any child, so
when Hagar was presented to Ibrahim (as) by the king of
Egypt, Sarah married her to Ibrahim (as) so that they can
have a child.
Ibrahim (as) was 85 when he married Hagar. All of
them were earnestly supplicating God for righteous progeny.
The DNA of Hajira (as)
Scientifically, African woman is the only organism
that possesses the mitochondrial DNA that has all the
variations possible for every different kind of human beings
on this earth. When the DNA of an African woman mutates, all
other types of human beings come about. This is called the
"Eve Gene". It is only found in African women.
There was a great purpose in the marriage of Ibrahim
(as) and Hajira (as); however, there is no superiority of
Blacks over White; and White over Blacks. (Last Khutbah of
Prophet Muhammad, saw). إِنَّ

Ibrahim (as) did nothing of his own accord rather
did as was commanded by God.
He took Ismael and his mother Hagar (as) to the
appointed land in the wilderness of Arabia and while
settling them there offered the following prayer: "Our Lord,
I have settled some of my progeny in an uncultivable valley
near thy Sacred House. Our Lord, that they may observe
prayer. So make men's hearts inclines towards them and
provide them with fruits and that they may be thankful. " Q
Our Lord, certainly, You know what we keep secret and what
we make known. And nothing whatever is hidden from Allah,
whether in the earth or in the heaven." (Q 14:38-39)

Motto of Ibrahim (as)
Say, "Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my
living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds. Q
In the tradition of Ibrahim (as), we shall adopt his
motto and live by it. It made him an invincible force and it
can also transform us as such.
Ultimate Sacrifice: His Son
Ibrahim (as) had seen a dream that he was
slaughtering his only son. When Ismael was twelve, Ibrahim
(as) came to visit them and mentioned the dream to him.
Quran mentions the whole episode as follows:
"And he prayed, My Lord, grant me a righteous son.
So We gave him the glad tidings of a forbearing son. And
when he was old enough to work and run along with him, he
said, 'O my dear son, I have seen in a dream that I am
offering you in sacrifice. So consider what you think of
(Ismael) replied, 'O my father, do as you art
commanded; you will find me, if Allah pleases, Sabir,
steadfast in my faith.' And when they both submitted to the
will of God, and Ibrahim had thrown him down on his
forehead. We called to him, 'O Ibrahim. You hast, indeed
fulfilled the dream.' Thus, indeed, do we reward those who
do good." (Q 37:101-106)
