Hadith of the Week
The Rights of Prisoners of War
It was narrated from Abu Bakr Siddiq, r.a., that the
Messenger of Allah(ﷺ) said:
"No person who mistreats his captive will enter Paradise."
They said: " O Messenger of Allah, did you not tell us that
this nation will have more captives and orphans than any
other nation?" He said: " Yes, so be as kind to them as you
are to your own children, and feed them with the same food
that you eat." They said: "What will benefit us in this
world?" He said: "A horse that is kept ready for fighting in
the cause of Allah, and your captive to take care of you,
and if he performs prayer, then he is your brother (in

Western Powers Unite Against ISIS: Islamic volunteers
pouring in to Support ISIS.
by Kaukab Siddique
In view of the colossal propaganda campaign against the
Caliphate [ISIS]. It's important to remember the
USA invaded Iraq and after years of fighting installed a
puppet shia regime in Baghdad headed by Maliki "elected"
under the shadow of American tanks.
Attempts by Maliki to suppress the Sunni population led to
massive peaceful demonstrations in Mosul and Anbar province.
These were brutally crushed by the Shia regime.
The Sunni masses rose up in armed struggle led by ISIS
[under Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's leadership]. The Shi;ite army
armed and funded by the US fled after ferocious attacks by
the mujahideen of ISIS on Mosul. Four divisions of Shii
military abandoned their heavy weapons, all provided by
America. US special forces arrived in Baghdad.
ISIS declared the Caliphate. Its shoora chose Abu Bakr
al-Baghdadi as Caliph. The Caliphate abolished the
imperialist borders between Syria and Iraq.
More US special forces were rushed to Iraq, to Baghdad and
Irbil. US supported bombing raids on ISIS resulted in scores
of deaths and injuries.
ISIS warned that it would behead two Americans in its hands
if the bombing raids continued. The attacks did not stop and
both Americans were beheaded, one of them an Israeli with
America decided to go to war over the two brutal beheadings.
The media moved big time to support the "atrocity"
propaganda. The murders of 500 Palestinian children in Gaza
by the Israeli air force were forgotten. The Israelis are
armed, funded and supported by the US.
As Islamic caliphate forces moved against Iraqi Kurdish
forces, UK started arming them. ISIS casualties mounted. UK
was warned that a British prisoner would be beheaded in
retaliation for UNPROVOKED war activity by the British. He
was beheaded when the British continued their acts of war.
[Many of the Kurds of Iraq, under secularist groups,
supported the US occupation of Iraq. They are connected to
Israel and have been providing oil to the Jewish state.
On September 24, US air force with fighter bombers from
Saudi Arabia and UAE, attacked Islamic capital of Raqqa in
Syria as well as al-Nusra positions in Aleppo along with
salafist Ahrar al-Sham.. French jet bombers joined the raids
on Islamic positions.
On September 26, UK, Belgium and Denmark decided to join the
bombing campaign against ISIS. Denmark previously insulted
the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, by publishing cartoons of the
most beloved leader of Islam

10 foods that unclogs arteries in a totally natural way
[With thanks to Junaid Tahir- India.]
We present you the 10 most effective ingredients that can
help unplug arteries and prevent the occurrence of serious
The main ingredient is soluble oat fiber, and it does not
allow the creation of cholesterol. These fibers are linked
to cholesterol and assist in its ejection from the body.
Research has shown that if you want to reduce your
cholesterol level by almost 20%, you only need to eat 1.5 to
2.5 cups of cooked oats per day.
Drink 3 cups of juice each new week, and you will
successfully unclog arteries. This juice increases the
ability of cells to absorb fats and produce energy, and does
not allow the fat to accumulate in the blood vessels.
Pomegranate is a powerful antioxidant that helps fight
hardening of the arteries, because it reduces damage to the
blood vessels and prevents the progression of the
Spinach is rich in folic acid and potassium and helps in the
prevention of hypertension. It frees the arteries by
preventing the formation of cholesterol and heart attacks at
the same time. Lutein, another component of spinach, acts as
a good protector against macular degeneration associated
Flavonoids, resveratrol and quercetin, the most useful are
the ingredients of grapes. They are good in preventing the
oxidation of cholesterol that leads to the formation of
plaque on artery walls. Grapes helps reduce the risk of
developing blood clots that lead to heart disease.
University of Southampton conducted a study related to fish
and its role in preventing clogged arteries. Their results
showed that fish, especially tuna and salmon, rich in
omega-3 oils that prevent fatty deposits accumulate in the
arteries. The fatty acids found in fish prevent oxidation of
cholesterol and formation of a clot.
Kiwi and melon
One cup of cantaloupe and kiwi one day unclogs artetije.
This is due to the high content of antioxidants, and their
power reduction of bad cholesterol.
Garlic has been used since the day for the treatment of
various diseases. Initially, the maximum has been used in
the treatment of high blood pressure, and heart disease, but
it has been found, and that has an incredibly effect in
preventing coronary artery calcification.
Research has shown that olive oil is fantastic in preventing
cholesterol. He oxidized and stick to artery. The most
important part of the olive oil are monounsaturated fats
that eliminate bad cholesterol.
Korean researchers found a compound in tomatoes that helps
prevent hardening of the arteries. It's called lycopene
gives tomatoes and red. Moreover, they found that women with
high levels of lycopene in the blood have fewer problems
with the arteries.

The way to success and salvation for humanity is to

and racism is essential to create a secure future for our
This unity must start at home and emerge from the home
into the mosque.
At the top of our agenda should be respect, honor and
participation in decision making for our sisters. There can
be no UNITED UMMAH if our sisters do not stand with us
against the oppressors.
Beware of the tricks of the media to divide the ummah.
Beware that the media are lying every day about the Islamic
forces overseas who are opposing American power.
We must define who we are as Muslims. We must define who
are the mujahideen and who are the munafiqueen. All attempts
by the Zionist media to define us must be defeated by our
abilities to give the true message of Islam.
Boycott all businesses which support Israel. Eat healthy

After Paris, San Barnardino: What is ISIS Trying to Do? The
Dangerous FEMALE Component.
[New Trend research]
The Islamic State [ISIS] is bombed every day. So many
countries have joined the bombing campaign that it is often
difficult for observers, even veteran observers like those
of the Syrian Observatory, to decide who did the bombing.
Americans are most persistent in bombing ISIS. The Russians
are most intense, followed closely by the French. Saudi.
Jordan, UAE have done their bit. The British are now going
in big time.
It's a documented fact that children in ISIS territories
wonder if a 500 pound bomb will come through the roof late
at night or that hospitals, mosques and schools will go up
in flames while people are in them.
USA boasts that it has killed more than 5,000 "militants" in
its bombing campaign. The Russians killed 403 civilians and
318 "militants" in the first 45 days of its campaign. The
British are claiming they have killed 313. French claims
have not come in yet.
The Alawite-Shi'ite tyrant Bashar Assad has killed tens of
thousands and kills scores every day although he has lost
most of Syria.
None of the western powers are hitting Assad and he is
supported actively by Russia, Iran and Hizbullah, each one
of which is better armed and numerically superior to the
Islamic State and all the other Islamic groups combined.
IS seems to be getting frantic not only because of the
bombing but also because Communist Kurds backed by the US
air force are nibbling away at its territory, moving slowly
towards Raqqa. In Iraq too, the Islamic State is heavily
outnumbered and massive Shiite and Kurdish forces are
preparing to assault both Mosul and Ramadi.
ISIS is strongly media savvy and sends out motivational
messages urging Muslims to rise against the Western powers.
It has been vigorously calling on Muslims to attack western
populations to compete with the western assault on Muslim
populations. Osama bin Laden made a major point of
retaliation. If you kill our people, we will kill yours, he
is reported to have said. ISIS holds Osama in high regard
and after coming under attack from powers outside Syria and
Iraq, has started following Osama's line quite
The Paris attack was carried out entirely by Muslims who
grew up in France. The male assailant in San Bernardino was
a US citizen. With him was a woman from Pakistan who grew up
in Saudi Arabia.
It is this female component of ISIS which has become most
dangerous in the efforts to motivate men to attack western
populations in retaliatory attacks.
In France, too the motivator was a woman named Boumedianne
and she successfully evaded security forces. The second
attack in Paris had also a female motivator who was killed
by the police.
And now the Pakistani Tafsheen Malik was reportedly
shooting at security forces before she was killed.
Hundreds of women have migrated from the West to the
Caliphate, many of them A level scholars like the two
Bangladeshi women and the Eritrean woman with them who
successfully reached Syria.
Women in the West have many reasons to leave. They are
treated like sex objects in America and Europe. Rape is
hardly punished. Under the Caliphate, rape is punishable by
death. The West will gradually understand why the Caliphate
is attracting women.
Dhaka Regime Preparing to Execute Leading Islamic Scholar &
Non-Violent Teacher Matiur Rahman Nizami.
Call for Peaceful Protest Rallies on December 7.
by Jamaate Islami Bangladesh
Acting Secretary General of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami Dr.
Shafiqur Rahman has issued the following statement on 5th
December, 2015 declaring nationwide peaceful demonstration
on 7th December, Monday demanding the release of all the
detained political leaders and activists including Jamaat
Ameer Maulana Matiur Rahman Nizami and protesting the
government sponsored propaganda against Maulana Nizami.
"The government is hatching heinous conspiracy against
Maulana Matiur Rahman Nizami. Maulana Nizami is a renowned
religious scholar and Islamic personality. He has gained
reputation and honor as he had successfully conducted two
ministries during the previous tenure with honesty and
sincerity. He has also won the national election and became
a parliament member for two times.
The government is plotting conspiracy to kill him in
connection with some false and vindictive cases as they
failed to tackle him politically. Not only that, the
Attorney General of the state also started propaganda saying
that Maulana Nizami accepted his crimes and asked for
commuting the death sentence.
Despite the instant protest of the defence counsels of
Maulana Nizami, the government is continuing its propaganda.
This propaganda is nothing but a part of the government's
strategy to humiliate Jamaat leaders and their

activists of Jamaat-e-Islami to make it a leaderless party.

Boston Marathon Bombing Court Appeals Begin: Public Donating
For Tsarnaev Funds.
by Sis. Karin Friedemann
On Tuesday, December 1, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's attorneys
brought up a number of arguments at Moakley Federal
Courthouse in Boston. I watched the hearing on the screen in
the overflow room. The first order of business was an
attempt to reduce the number of charges against the young
man. He was convicted of 30 counts, several of which are
more than sufficient to result in the death penalty. His
attorneys argued that the sheer number of counts against him
overwhelmed the jury and caused them to be influenced in
favor of the death penalty.
They would like to have a retrial in a different city
because the locals of Boston are likely to be driven by
revenge since they were personally affected by the tragedy.
In their motion, they mentioned that the people on the jury
were actively exposed to coverage and opinions about the
bombing on Facebook during the trial, and that many of their
Facebook friends were Bostonians. Some of the jurists
actually made or were exposed to prejudiced comments even
before evidence of the crime was presented.
Defense attorneys spent a lot of time bringing up
technicalities that in my opinion were not very forceful
arguments. Attorney William Fick said many of the charges
were unconstitutional because they mentioned "violent
physical force." They said the government "conflates the
ability to cause injury with violent force." They claimed
that setting the bomb down was not technically the use of
violent force any more than arson, which is not considered a
violent crime even if people are hurt in the process.
Regarding the charge of "malicious bombing of property,"
they argued that the word "malicious" refers to a mental
state resulting in "intentional and reckless" behavior but
does not imply violent force was used. The carjacking took
place because of intimidation - no violence was
Naturally, the government disagreed that the counts needed
to be vacated and stated that the decision should be left to
the Supreme Court.
In the second part of the hearing, the fiery Attorney Miriam
Conrad argued forcefully against the Special Administrative
Measures (SAMs) against Tsarnaev. She said there was "no
valid argument to justify" having a federal agent monitor
attorney visits with Tsarnaev's sisters in prison. In an
earlier court hearing "in the shadow of litigation," the
court had ruled that the agent would be from a different
state and not part of the government prosecution team. He
was not to relay information to the prosecutors about their
conversations due to "attorney client privilege."
However, in a recent email to the defense lawyers, the
government lawyers said that they no longer plan to abide by
that agreement and that they want access to the defense's
information file. They want to know who visits Tsarnaev and
what they talked about. Defense lawyers said the government
cannot just unilaterally decide to revoke an agreement, that
litigation is far from over and that attorney client
privilege still holds. It is not at all normal for
prosecutors to get access to defense attorney's private
files whether before, during, or after litigation. The
government should not decide whether meetings should take
place, nor see documents, Conrad argued. The agreement does
not say that the information is only private until after the
verdict. She said that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is not being
treated like any other defendant. There are far more
restrictions on his lawyers' ability to defend him, even
though he is not just serving a sentence, he is awaiting the
The government argued that the presence of Tsarnaev's
sisters invalidates attorney-client privilege and that the
agreement is not enforceable because the government needs to
know if there were visitors who were not expert witnesses,
so they can investigate these persons because the government
"needs to know if they've ever had problems before." They
mentioned Sister Helena, the nun that testified that
Tsarnaev was sorry for his actions. They didn't think she
should be visiting Tsarnaev because she is not an expert
Conrad replied that listening to the government talk is like
Alice looking through the looking glass. The government
should have modified the agreement not just send an email
saying we aren't following it anymore. Sister Helena was
cleared under the heavy restrictions of the SAMs and there
is no reason that the government needs to know what she said
As usual, Judge O'Toole mumbled that he would not rule at
The next issue that was discussed was how much money would
be taken out of Tsarnaev's commissary to go towards "Mass
Fund" which gifted 57 victims with restitution money. The
court ruled that Tsarnaev would have to pay $25 per quarter
($100/year), an amount that would be adjusted based on
availability. This seems to be aimed at discouraging
supporters to donate money in fear that the government will
take it. In the past, Tsarnaev received so many donations
that the government threatened not to provide him with a
free lawyer as he had too much money. Now, nobody is even
allowed to send him books. His attorneys were not even
allowed to give him a family photo.
Finally, the court discussed the unsealing of documents. As
of now, Tsarnaev's trial is unprecedented in terms of how
much of the proceedings has gone on under the veil of
secrecy. "We are anxious on behalf of a lot of people to
unseal the documents," said O'Toole. He ruled that for
starters, both defense and prosecution would decide which of
their own documents they wished to unseal. After that would
come a future discussion on which of the other party's
documents the parties would agree to unseal, before arguing
about the remaining documents. Clearly the judge is in no
hurry for the proceedings to become transparent to the
The Tsarnaev case, as with most cases where the defendant is
a Muslim, continues to elements and types of issues that
normally do not arise in other cases, even when the
defendant, who is not Muslim, has committed a mass murder.
For example, the fellow who shot up the church got a speedy
trial and was not sentenced to death, whereas the Boston
Bombing trial went on for years and there is no end in
Jewish money at work.

With Millions at Stake, the 'Adelson Primary' is Neck and
It is the biggest financial prize in Republican presidential
politics: the endorsement of Sheldon Adelson, the
multibillionaire casino magnate legendary for his
willingness to spend huge sums to promote the candidates of
his choosing. But this year the bidding to become the winner
of what is informally called the "Adelson primary" has
gotten complicated. After being wooed by virtually all the
major GOP contenders, the 82-year-old Adelson was believed
to be close to announcing his backing of Florida Sen. Marco
Rubio shortly after the Dec. 15 Republican debate - an event
that, conveniently enough, is being held at the Venetian Las
Vegas, a hotel Adelson owns.
Why is Only one Officer out of 8 being Investigated in the
Eric Garner Case?
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]
New York City - It is being reported that NYPD Commissioner
William Bratton is holding off on bringing his own charges
against the ONLY officer to be charged in Eric Garner's
death, Daniel Pantaleo, until the Justice Department has
concluded its own investigation. Loretta Lynch, who replaced
Eric Holder as head of the Justice Department, is awaiting
word of ANY findings. Officer Pantaleo has been on modified
duty and getting a salary ever since this killing.
I smell a rat! The first problem with the "investigation"
into this case is that the justice Department is only
looking into Pantoleo's actions. If they were really
considering investigating the entire case, they would be
considering all eight officers involved, not just Pantoleo.
The video clearly shows eight officers attacking and pulling
down Garner and they were unprovoked. Even if they were
provoke, officers are trained not to respond in a violent
The Obama Administration should serve as an even greater
lesson to Black Americans for why we should stay away from
politics. It is a corrupt system. The Black politicians have
proven themselves ineffective being nothing more than "black
faces in high places," as radio show host Bob Law used to
say. Their sole mission is to work within the confines of of
a White supremacist agenda. These "black faces in high
places" continue the oppression of others by working in an
oppressive system. Muslims should know better because the
Qur'an forbids forging relationships with an oppressor,
especially our own.
The call to assimilate has been the death knell for the
Black Community. Black people can be great organizers but,
there has to be a potent form of action that yields the best
results. We must stop following the same old okey doke, such
