Letter [from Canada]
Answering Abusive Attacks
on Br. Kuakab on the Internet
after he Condemned Pakistan army's Actions.
Brother ....., I'm very surprised with your comments against
brother Kaukab. You send lengthy Islamic mails every day and
now you are supporting [Agha Khani woman] who is faahisha
and tawaifa woman. I know you belong to firqa ahle
hadith/salafi/wahabi. Your firqa rejects (Naoozubillah) any
hadith which is considered unauthentic by Albani or ibne
Taymia. Why are some ahaadith considered unauthentic? I'm
not going in detail but one of the reason is if any of the
narrators are not trustworthy, but for you, this faahisha
and tawaaifa woman is trustworthy?? I'm shocked. brother
..... fear Allah. You could be in big trouble in the day of
judgment for your accusations against brother Kaukab. I have
been reading his mails for about 10 years and didn't find
any of his mails abusive of others. All that he says is
Your accusation against him is about the verses of Qaran
which you quoted to him and he still didn't agree with it.
It doesn't mean he rejected the verses of Quran, but he
rejected your interpretation.
So please brother ..... fear Allah. Don't accuse your
brother if he does not agree with your interpretation.
He is correct what he said to sister ....., and whatever he
said to sister ....., he said with manners and akhlaaq, but
sis ..... is the one who is using abusive words and you are
Brother Kaukab's 1st reply to her was this:
"Why not try to make peace?
You call them criminals. They call the army, agents of
Army has killed more than 2000 young Islamic people.
Army has evicted more than a million Muslims from their
homes in North Waziristan.
Now they have killed 21 young Pakistanis in retaliation.
You cannot crush Mujahideen even with America's help.
Call for peace. That is the way.
Do you have the guts to call for peace instead of blindly
supporting América's rented army?"
I just request you please don't destroy your aakhira and
have fear of Allah.

What's Wrong with President Obama's visit to Baltimore
Mosque [ISB]? Why are Rich Muslims Reacting to Trump and
by Kaukab Siddique,PhD
"Fain would they deceive Allah and those who believe, but
they only deceive themselves, and realize (it) not!" [The
Qur'an 2: 9]
And incline not to the oppressors, or the Fire will seize
you; and ye have no protectors other than Allah, nor shall
ye be helped.[11:113]
"There is no obedience in matters involving God's
disobedience or displeasure. Obedience is obligatory only in
what is good (and reasonable)." Prophet Muhammad, pbuh.
(Sahih Muslim. Book #020, Hadith #4535)
America's legality is based on freedom of religion,
separation of "church" and State, and Freedom of
President Obama has been systematically undermining the
separation of church and state. Rich Muslims, many of whom
congregate at the ISB, are already scared stiff owing to the
polemic launched by Trump. On top of them comes the
President and herds them into the domain of integration,
assimilation and blind nationalism,
Entry of a powerful ruler into a place of worship is a form
of aggression which is bound to intimidate the audience. For
a kafir to enter an Islamic place of worship and to lecture
Muslims on right and wrong is forbidden in Islam. The MIMBAR
is where the Prophet, pbuh, used to stand. Certainly it is
not a place for a non-Muslim.
It is sacrilege and desecration.
Look at the congregation at the ISB which I know quite well.
It is constituted of Arabs, Pakistanis-Indians-Bangladeshis,
Africans and African Americans. Look at what this president
has done to the home countries of these constituents.
Israel has been planted in the heartland of Arab Muslim
regions [with global impact on the Muslim ummah]. Obama is
helping Israel with weapons and funds above and beyond what
any previous president did. He ignores Israeli crimes
against Palestinians. He even ignored the Israeli genocide
in Gaza where hundreds of children were killed by the Jews
along with thousands of adults killed and wounded.
1a. Almost all American Jews are supporting Israel with
money and moral bias and media censorship of Muslim
suffering.. Obama wants Muslims to be friends with American
Obama is fully in support of the blood thirsty regime
installed in Baghdad by the Bush regime. At his orders, the
US air force is bombing those Iraqis who are fighting the
regime in Baghdad.
Obama has not imposed any counters to the Syrian regime
which is going all out to destroy the 85% of the population
which opposes Assad. Obama has found a slick way of
supporting Assad without seeming to do so. He has taken NO
steps to oppose the entry of Russia, Iran and Hizbullah into
Syria. In fact Obama is trying to create a "peace" which
would keep Assad in place. The US air force bombs Islamic
fighters on a daily basis and wiped out the entire city of
Obama's use of drones to hit defenseless Pakistani and
Somali and Yemeni villages is well documented. Several
thousand civilians have been killed in these attacks. The
only information on those being killed by the drones comes
from the Pakistani military which loves what America is
doing. Obama is arming and funding the Pakistani military
which drove out the entire population of North Waziristan,
ONE MILLION CIVILIANS, which is a form of genocide. A
similar action was taken in Swat.
In Africa, President Obama personally visited Kenya and
Senegal and spoke out in support of homosexuality much to
the chagrin of his hosts because these are Muslim countries.
In Uganda, penalties against homosexuality were withdrawn
even though sanctioned by its supreme court when America
threatened to withhold millions of dollars in aid last
African Americans know very well that police brutality
has become a plague affecting just about all major
Is it a Reaction to Trump and Fox TV?
America wants educated Muslims to come here and serve
America. There are no significant numbers of undocumented
Muslims in mosques like ISB.There have been no acts of
violence against ISB. In fact all across America there have
been hardly any acts of violence against Muslims other than
one tragedy in North Carolina..
In all acts of violence against mosques, non-Muslim
Americans have supported Muslims with sympathy and
Trump and other Republicans make outrageous statements
against Muslims coming in here but this is meant to attract
the support of extremist Christians. It is not going to
work. America needs Muslims to fight the Islamic uprising in
the Muslim world.
Notice the attack by FOX TV on Obama's visit to the ISB. It
brought in a scatterbrained doctor Zuhdi Jassar and a Shia
leader. Their case is very weak. Even Pamela Geller could do
better. Jassar made the claim that the ISB is a center for
Muslim Brotherhood. The proof he offered was that a Sudanese
imam, Adam al Shaikh, used to work there YEARS BACK.
In fact Adam is a staunch supporter of the US government.
The Shia who came on FOX TV sees the Saudis as the source of
evil because they allegedly support ISB. In fact Saudi
Arabia is a reliable ally of the USA, along with Israel and
Muslims should concentrate on using peaceful means and the
freedom of expression America provides to spread the message
of Islam. US governments will continue to bomb Muslim
countries but none can do as much bombing as Bush did. Trump
would have no more success than Bush did. Peace moves are
the only solution. Bombing and military means cannot defeat
Muslims. In fact armed Muslim groups today have more support
than they ever had before.
As Allama Iqbal put it, "The believers live like the sun.
They go down here and rise up there." [InshaAllah.]
Adnan Syed Case was either fabricated or Severely
Misdirected. After 16 Years Evidence ignored Earlier is now
[From New Trend's media monitor.]
Adnan was convicted for the murder of Hae Min Lee 16 years
back. Now it turns out that according to a witness, Ms.
Chapman, Adnan was with her in a public library at the time
of the murder.
On hearing of his arrest, she had asked that library cameras
be checked for her statement that he was with her. Her
request was ignored on the basis of the claim that there
were no cameras there. Now it turns out that the cameras
"David Irwin, a defense attorney, testified as an expert
witness on the legal obligation to contact and investigate
potential alibi witnesses, declaring that an alibi "is the
best possible defense you can have".
He said not investigating the claims of Asia McClain, now
Chapman, who said she was in the library with Syed when the
murder occurred, was a serious ethical lapse, saying that
such an investigation "was mandated as well as important".
In a letter Chapman wrote to Syed shortly after his arrest,
she claimed that she had called the library and was told
they had a security camera. Irwin said this added to her
trustworthiness because a liar would not seek verification.
But the state's lawyer Thiru Vignarajah had tried to
discredit Chapman's testimony by claiming the library did
not have cameras at the time. That claim was refuted by
Michelle Hamiel, a librarian at the time, who helped manage
the surveillance system." [the Guardian February 6.]
The other most important aspect of the case, Syed's presence
at the place of burial of ms. Lee is also now in doubt.
' "FBI special agent Chad Fitzgerald in a lengthy
cross-examination.... appeared momentarily flummoxed when
Syed's attorney showed him records that indicated a single
caller purportedly had managed to travel between Woodlawn, a
Baltimore suburb where the murder occurred, and Washington
DC which should be an hour away, in less than half that
time. Calling into the question of validity of cellphone
records, he said such speedy travel wouldn't be possible
"unless Mr Syed had a helicopter".' [The Guardian]
it appears that Syed's attorney during the original trial
was ineffective. She was very sick and died later of
The State's attorney Thiru Vignarajah from the name appears
to be a Hindu. It is not strange that the Muslim community
saw this case as vendetta against Muslims at a prominent

Mujahideen Counterattack & Retake key town Captured by
500 Russian Air Strikes terrorized the people and Drove them
Towards Turkish Border.
Iranian General and 5 Soldiers Among 100 Regime Troops
killed. Also heavy Islamic Losses.
[Sources: Syrian Observatory, Reuters, the Guardian and AP]
On February 7, an Islamic counterattack led by Jabhat
al-Nusra entered the western part of Retian town and drove
out Hizbullah forces. Fighting continues outside the town .
The setback for the Alawite forces has temporarily stopped
the encirclement of Aleppo which they were attempting.
Earlier the 24/7 air strikes by the Russian air force, 500
in three days, helped Hizbullah to break the siege of two
heavily armed Shia villages to the north west of Aleppo.
The bombing was so severe and so indiscriminate that it
amounted to terror bombing. The population of the
countryside started fleeing northwards towards the Turkish
border. By February 6, more than 15,000 civilians had
gathered near the Turkish border. Rumors had it that 70,000
Media around the world announced that the Islamic resistance
was about to collapse.
In fact the Shi'ites/Alawites suffered heavy losses,
including an Iranian General, Mohsen Jafrani and 5 Iranian
military advisers. Both sides suffered heavily, about 100
dead each, before the mujahideen counterattack. The Russian
air forces broke the Islamic defenses temporarily.
In other parts of Syria too, the battle is going back and
forth. In the deep south, the town of Shaikh Meskin has
changed hands three times between Hizbullah and FSA.
In northern Latakkia, various hill tops have been taken by
Hizbullah and retaken by Turkestan Islamic forces and Ahrar
The Communist YPG are slowly advancing on the Turkish border
with help from the US air force.
The Islamic State has advanced further into Dei ez Zor and
is trying to take a heavily defended air base of Bashar

to break the siege of Kweris air base and now the mujahideen
are again trying to take the base.

Breastfeeding rates still low despite global education
by Sis. Karin Friedemann
Despite widespread awareness of the importance of
breastfeeding to the human child, mothers in developed
countries demonstrate low rates of compliance with global
recommendations. Nursing past six months is the exception
rather than the rule. Bottle-feeding infants has become
normal. Exclusive and extensive breastfeeding has become a
pastime primarily for the rich with some interesting
exceptions. Nordic countries exhibit the overall highest
European breastfeeding rate with England ranking lowest. UAE
ruling class mothers exclusively breastfeed the longest
among Arabs while Iraq suffers the lowest breastfeeding
rates. US Whites and Native Americans are most likely to
breastfeed while Blacks and Hispanics are the least
Class plays a large role in decision to breastfeed, for far
fewer women belonging to the routine and manual labor
socio-economic group nurse beyond six weeks than is typical
of professional women and full time mothers. Yet, religion
and philosophy also affect women's decision to breastfeed.
In Singapore non-Malay Muslim women are 6.7 times more
likely to breastfeed than Buddhist women although Malays
have the lowest rate. Urban babies receive half the breast
milk of rural babies. The youngest mothers tend to
supplement with bottles from birth.
The World Health Organization and UNICEF work hard to
promote breastfeeding worldwide, but their success is
undermined by factors such as free infant formula
distribution, hospital practices and lack of personal
support. Breastfeeding is a learned skill requiring effort
and focus. Good intentions are not always enough to
establish lactation. "Baby-friendly hospital" initiatives in
many countries have significantly increased breastfeeding
but rates are still well below optimum health
Almost all new mothers attempt breastfeeding but few
continue for the recommended period. According to UNICEF the
early introduction of bottle-feeding and complementary food
leads to premature weaning, which is the primary cause of
malnutrition in children under age two worldwide.
Many women give up nursing in favor of bottle-feeding out of
a sense of powerless over the situation. These mothers often
wanted very much to nurse their child, but they lost their
chance. Hospitals fail to promote exclusive breastfeeding of
newborns. Most new mothers receive free samples of formula
because of multi-million dollar deals between hospitals and
pharmaceutical companies and come home with their babies
already addicted to the bottle. Coaxing a newborn child to
breastfeed after he has been bottle-fed even just once or
twice can be a big struggle. Success may be impossible
without the aid of a midwife or lactation counselor because
unfortunately even the older generation of mothers lack
When newborns reject the breast, mothers typically try for a
while, then give up and supply a bottle. This teaches the
baby that refusing to nurse will be rewarded. Parents must
exercise "tough love" by declining to give the baby a bottle
even if it takes several hours or even days for the baby to
nurse willingly. (If the baby gets dehydrated, do give him
water with a cup or medicine dropper, but introducing a
bottle creates "nipple confusion" which is disastrous for
the mother-child relationship).
Some women give up on breastfeeding because the husband
insists. This tragedy reveals a stripping away at women's
postnatal rights and sets a dangerous precedent. Nursing a
baby is an exhausting and time-consuming job requiring
family help, encouragement, and support especially from the
father to enable mother and child to be together undisturbed
as much as possible particularly during the first 40 days of
the baby's life.
Many women manage to make it through those hardest days in
the beginning and then stop breastfeeding after a few weeks
out of fear of insufficient milk supply. These mothers need
to increase their consumption of calories and to get
adequate rest. Under no circumstances should they give their
baby a bottle because this will only decrease the supply of
breastmilk. Sometimes it is actually the doctor's advice to
start feeding their babies solids before 6 months that leads
to premature weaning. A mother needs to weigh the fun of
spoon-feeding her infant against the risk of premature
rejection of the breast.
Thus bottle-feeding rates remain high despite awareness that
breastmilk alone contains all the nutrients, antibodies,
hormones and immune factors that a baby needs.
"Encouraging exclusive breastfeeding has to become a high
priority in all sectors of society," said Dr. Mahendra
Sheth, UNICEF Regional Health and Nutrition Adviser for the
Middle East and North Africa. Exclusive breastfeeding for
six months followed by complementary feeding between 6-9
months with continued breastfeeding through the first year
could save an estimated 1.5 million lives annually.
Women receiving adequate advice can often prolong nursing
even after returning to work outside the home. Premature
infants particularly need breast milk for the best odds in
Pregnant women should read books on how to breastfeed and
understand fully the necessary commitment to avoid making a
tragic mistake to be remembered with regret.

affairs and US politics.
Racism in The Sports Media : Which Players will they expose
and which will they Protect.
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]
Black NFL quarterback Cam Newton's only controversy is
upstaging his opponents. I don't believe anyone likes this
type of showboating, except Carolina Panthers' fans. It is
so easy for the mainstream or so-called White media to
attack Black and splash headlines with racism charges
because it is a distraction from the real issues. Racism is
a very emotional issue that will last until the end of time.
It is also a tool for those who know how to use it.
I know that if there was any dirt to dig up on Cam Newton
the racist media would have found it by now. Instead there
has always been dirt to be found on Denver Broncos
quarterback Peyton Manning. However, he has always been
under the protection of the White media. Although, criminal
trials have long since been over and time has been served,,
the White media just cannot stop bringing up the fact that a
young Ray Lewis was once tried as an accomplice to murder.
He was acquitted. And, they cannot stop mentioning
quarterback Michael Vick's dog fighting conviction.
How about the fact that White quarterback Peyton Manning
sexually assaulted a female athletic trainer while a student
at the University of Tennessee. That did not stop him from
going number one in the 1998 NFL draft. The media really
kept those charges quiet, in spite of the fact that this
disturbing act was witnessed by another athlete whose
Christian values prevented him from lying about it. The way
the media speaks so glowingly about Manning, no one would
ever know that something that insidious was in his past. The
average man would be on some state's sexual predator's
Brett Favre, another White quarterback, was accused of
sending pictures of his genitals to several women. However,
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who claimed he would
investigate this matter, allowed Brett Favre to retire and
ruled the case dead. No punishments.
Now, the new story the media wants to ignore about Peyton
Manning is the accusation, by Al-Jazeera, that he used
growth hormone, which is illegal in the NFL. Yet, many
people say that the use of steroids is pretty rampant, which
is believable when you see how incredibly large these guys
become compared to when they were in college. The source for
the Al-Jazeera report has backtracked and says he lied.
However, Al-Jazeera is sticking to its story. Peyton Manning
is saying that his wife was the user of growth hormone,
which women usually use to hinder aging and for weight loss.
An athlete would use growth hormone to increase the rate of
healing from an injury and to build lean muscle.
Manning is also upset because he said that the growth
hormone was prescribed to his wife by a doctor and that his
wife's medical privacy was violated. The NFL is claiming it
will investigate Manning. Meanwhile, many are saying this
Super Bowl 50 is Manning's last hurrah.
Sports radio's WFAN's Patrick McGlynn sarcastically asked
where all of the same critics, who refer to Michael Vick,
Odell Beckham, Greg Norman, and other Black players as
thugs, when Johnny Manziel, a White quarterback, is accused
of doing the same things. Manziel, whose great-great
grandfather Joseph Manziel was a Lebanese oil baron, was
recently arrested for hitting his girlfriend. He has also
been accused of being an alcoholic and giving the Cleveland
Browns, who said they will release him next month, a
migraine. However, in his case, many people have been
calling in and saying that this young man needs help.
McGlynn stated that he did not want to hear such arguments
and that if those other Black players are thugs then,
Manziel is one too for doing the same things.
Make no mistake about it: Universities and major sports
leagues will do their best to quiet scandal and continue
making their money but, law enforcement and the media
ultimately decide which players they will expose or protect.
