Hadith of the Week
Serving Helpless Women and the Deprived Needy People is a
Foremost Islamic Duty
Abu Hurairah, r.a., reported: The Prophet (peace be upon
him) said, One who strives to help the widows and the poor
is like the one who fights in the way of Allah. The narrator
said: I think that he (peace be upon him) added also: I
shall regard him as the one who stands up (for prayer)
without rest and as the one who observes fasts
(Bukhari and Muslim)
Comment by Kaukab Siddique:
Women who are suddenly deprived
of a husband, whether by war or by sickness, are among the
most vulnerable people. Muslims should marry widows as did
the Prophet, pbuh, and many of the sahaba, r.a. The poor in
Islam are ones who have become deprived owing to the
injustices of society or their own weaknesses
Rebuttal of Shi'iism.
If any of these points are incorrect, please inform us.

New Trend checked and double checked the books of history
and found the following:
Ali, r.a., gave his allegiance to Abu Bakr, r.a., and
then to Umar, r.a., and then to Usman, r.a.
Ali, r.a., did not claim that his right to be caliph was
usurped by the three to whom he gave his allegiance.
The Qur'an does not mention Ali, r.a. It specifically
links the term ahlul bayt, to the wives of the Prophet,
The Prophet, pbuh, never gave a position of authority to
Ali, r.a., or ro any of his clan, the Banu Hashim.
Ali, r.a., is respected by Muslims owing to his great
bravery in the battles of Badr, Uhud and Khyber. However,
Ali, r.a., did not participate in the war with renegade
groups and false prophets immediately after the prophet,
pbuh, passed away.
After the victory over the renegades, the Islamic state
of Madinah was threatened by the two empires of the time,
the Roman and the Persian, but Ali, r.a., did not
participate in the greatest battles in history after the
time of the Prophet, pbuh, which destroyed the two
The Qur'an which we all revere and recite today was
compiled by Usman, r.a., the third of the three greatest
caliphs, from the memories and writings of the entire Muslim
community of sahaba, r.a.
Ali, r.a., was a great fighter but Khalid ibn al-Waleed,
r.a., outdid all Muslims on the battlefield and was the only
Muslim given the title of Saifullah [the Sword of Allah] by
the Prophet, pbuh.
In the application of justice, purity of character and
selflessness, no Muslim ruler has ever approached the level
of Umar, r.a., The Prophet, pbuh, said if there were a
prophet after me, it would have been Umar, r.a.
When the rebels attacked Usman, r.a., after they had
carried out a relentless campaign of slander against him, he
answered them verbally but refused to shed their blood. They
murdered him in cold blood. These rebels became the leading
supporters of Ali, r.a., and made him the caliph.

highly educated Pakistani reader.
Those who know our pain will understand. The following came
to mind today:Punjab 1947. From what I have pieced
together. Allah was kind to me, I was not there to witness
It is indeed true that the overall majority in the Punjab (
as in Bengal) was Muslim, so Hindus were combined with Sikhs
to give them a very slight majority in the eastern half of
Punjab. The more wealthy half was thus given to Bharat.
Except for the Sikh enclave of Amritsar, Muslims had
expected the boundary to be drawn at Beas if not the Sutlej
river. Jallandhar was expected to be part of Pakistan where
the sophisticated urban population was Muslim and had a
powerful cultural tradition. Naseem Hejazi in a novel has
memorialized this Muslim culture of East Punjab , their
struggle and tragedy.
Master Tara Singh, the Sikh leader who was a Hindu convert
to Sikhism, sided with the Hindus and declared open season
to kill Muslims everywhere. Under Tara Singh's leadership
the Sikhs refused concessions and overtures by the Muslim
League. He infamously drew his sword on the steps of the
Punjab Assembly building and signaled the beginning of the
killings. A section of Sikhs today regret their union with
Delhi and yearn for Khalistan.
The British divided the districts under Congress
supervision, giving Ferozepur and portions of Gurdaspur
districts to Delhi. This Muslim majority district was
divided by tehsils. Most of the tehsils of Gurdaspur were
majority Muslim but delivered to Bharat. Some boundaries
were announced after partition of South Asia had already
taken place. The control of headwords for Sutlej at
Ferozepur and Ravi were also given also to the government in
Delhi. Though Musllms had been killed before August 14 in
pogroms, the actual border was a surprise and millions found
the selves on the wrong side of the divide. As Muslims were
evicted and found themselves on roads or trains to Pakistan
they were systematically killed, plundered and raped by
organized gangs of Sikhs and Hindus on a massive scale.
Muslim women suffers the most, their breasts cut off, their
in utero babies cut out and placed at the points of swords
and then taunted as the flag of Pakistan. Young men were
Migratory numbers in both sides may be similar, but a large
number of Hindus and Sikhs had already left the western part
of the province as early as 1946. Those caravans were
protected by the Royal Indian army. The killing was thus,by
and large, though not totally, one sided. The Muslim
soldiers were in foreign theaters of war or demobilized and
their weapons confiscated. This gave free rein to the
private Sikh armies, such as the ones of the east Punjab
states of Nabha and Patiala to organize the massacres.
Gurdaspur tehsil was strategic with a majority Muslim
population, and the only road from Bharat to Kashmir went
through that tehsil. The British were not just dividing they
were carefully giving away strategic areas to Bharat.
Kashmir was not given to India, it was forcibly taken by
Indian military under the command of Mountbatten who was the
Governor General in Delhi. Portions of Jammu and Kashmir
state were liberated by the Mujaheeden, mainly residents of
Azad Kashmir who had been demobilized from the Royal Indian
Army, and tribal Muslims from FATA. The descendent of the
latter are now targets of operations by the Pakistani
military. The so called Zarb e Azb, (Ajamized, actually darb
in Arabic) named after the Prophet's (saw) sword. The
Prophet (saw) did not kill Muslims nor did he make a million
or more homeless.
The Pakistani Army played very little part in Kashmir in
those early days. It is said that the British head of the
Pakistani Army refused orders from Mr. Jinnah to mobilize to
Kashmir, saying he took orders from Mountbatten. Mr Jinnah
probably then gave green signal to Khan Abdul Qayyum Khan,
the Muslim league leader of Kashmiri origin in Peshawar. The
tribals ( the only armed Muslins) had been agitating to be
allowed road access to go to the Kashmir and Punjab fronts
after atrocity stories started to trickle in. The British
governor had said that if he gave a nod, a million
mujahideen would mobilize to the new Punjab border. KAQK
[Khan Abdul Qayoom Khan] then agreed to the demands of the
tribals to let them proceed to Kashmir to help their
brethren. A limited force left for Kashmir. The Indian and
Dogra forces were defeated by these poorly armed irregulars
and Muzzafarabad was liberated. Without air support future
ground taken in the Valley was difficult to hold.
These same tribals fought on the Punjab front during the
1965 and 1971 wars. They were declared enemies of Pakistan,
first by Musharraf on US demand, and that policy was further
intensified by Kiyani and Raheel Sharif.
Rest is history. Allah knows best.
Airstrikes on Islamic State-held city in Syria kill at least
24 civilians. Water Supply in Raqqa cut in Bombing.
Syrian activists said airstrikes targeting the Islamic State
group 's de facto capital of Raqqa on Thursday killed at
least 20 civilians in a new round of bombardment.The local
activist group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently said the
strikes also cut the city's water supply.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights
reported the airstrikes, saying that 24 civilians were
killed, along with six others whose affiliation or
identities could not yet be confirmed.
Both groups said the strikes were launched by Russian jets,
though it was not clear how they made the determination.

August 8 to August 14.
The most bitter fighting is going on daily between the
Alawite enclave in western Aleppo and FSA in most of western
Aleppo. The Alawites use the Russian air force and
"Hizbullah" long range artillery to strike the Islamic FSA
forces and civilian volunteers in eastern Aleppo. The FSA
has been shelling the Alawites with mortars.
The al-Nusra front which has left al-Qaida is helping the
FSA and once again has repelled a massive "Hizbullah" attack
on Aleppo from the south.
A new initiative has been taken by Islamic groups from
Qalamoun mountains to cut the international highway to
Damascus. Heavy fighting continues.

Pakistan's Ugly Secret Hidden from its People.
From a New Trend Correspondent
Not only is Pakistan not opposed to Bashar Assad , but
actively supports that sectarian heterodox genocidal
In spite of Iran's extensive involvement in sectarian
murder, Pakistan continues to support Iran's expansionist
policy. Pakistan also has military ties with the barbarous
anti-democratic regime of El-Sissi. General Raheel visited
him recently , but is cool to Turkey. For the first time
people in a Muslim country defeated a military coup. In fact
Pakistani elite and English language papers are anti
Erdogan. Gulenist schools are still functioning in
Pakistani military must be concerned about events in Turkey.
Turkey and Erdogan have shown a way out of the hegemonic
grip of foreign funded and directed military apparatus.
In Pakistan, criticizing the military is severely punishable
by law, it is held in greater esteem than the Prophet (saw)
by the law enforcers. By military is meant the top brass,
not the grunt soldier or junior officers, who receive funds
from foreign powers and who disobeyed Qaide Azam Jinnah's
instructions not to send the military to FATA.
It has become clear that charges against Brigadier Khan were
trumped up by Kiyani et al because Khan had criticized US
intrusion in Pakistan.
Poor Javed Hashimi suffered ten years of imprisonment
because the military felt he was a threat.
I am not aware of any one punished by the military or the
courts for blasphemy against the Prophet(saw).
Pakistani politicians and journalists will not criticize the
military. Only the pro- India journalists are allowed to
criticize the military to make it less effective. Those left
wingers have successfully employed the military to do their
job to water down Islam and cause a civil war. It is also
clear by following pro Iranian and Assad policies, Pakistan
has a deep state which is influenced by Gulenist-like
sectarians dominating the military, the media and the
Nation should support JI in building Pakistan as an Islamic,
by Qaiser Sharif
LAHORE, Aug. 14; Hoisting the national flag atop Jamaat e
Islami headquarters Mansoora to mark the 70th Independence
day, Ameer, JI, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, urged the
nation to support the JI in its efforts to build Pakistan as
a truly Islamic welfare state according to the vision of
Allama Muhammad Iqbal and Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali
Thousands of people including the Mansoora staff, JI
workers, youth and those attending the JI central workshop
attended the impressive ceremony charged with emotions and
Terming Pakistan as a part of paradise and the mother's lap,

Sirajul Haq said that Allah had blessed Pakistan with best
combination of weathers and a nuclear status. He said the
future of Pakistan was bright and was linked with Islam. He
said that those who wanted Pakistan, to be secular state
should shift to some other country. He said that after the
state of Madina, Pakistan was the first state that came into
being in the name of Islam. Lakhs of men, women and children
had sacrificed their lives for this Muslim homeland.
However, he said, that soon after the demise of the Quaid e
Azam, Pakistan fell into the hands of secular and liberal
people who did not have any ideology nor were they aware of
the goal before the founding fathers. He said these rulers
had betrayed the nation and the country's ideology. As a
result, the country lost her eastern wing and was drifted
away from the goal of Islamic revolution.
How America Has Weakened the Family Unit...Oh, let me count
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]
The industrial revolution took men out of the homes and had
them work in factories for 16 hours or longer (this is
before 20th century unions and labor laws).
Child Welfare Laws: Emergency room doctors and teachers turn
snitch on parents who do not comply with some illogical
demand, such as allowing doctors to perform an unsafe
medical procedure on their child or arguing with a teacher
over the mistreatment of their child. "Child Protection"
laws have encouraged these people to file complaints with
child services on the parent and cause a possible separation
for sometime between good parents and their children!
Providing birth control to children in schools. Parents do
not need to be notified.

Reality shows. People looking for 15 minutes of fame will
look to embarrass family members with lawsuits or personal

Prison industry. Needlessly imprisoning people, mainly
children, for nonviolent offenses.
These are just some of the things that I thought of, for
now. Individuals make up families and families make up
society. I agree wholeheartedly that a strong family unit
can be a great defense to some of the oppressive nonsense
this society has been subjected to, up until now. Distance
between family members will not break this strong bond.
Wealthy families, such as the Kennedys, Bushs', Du Ponts,
etc, know the power of the family unit and have never
allowed anyone to interfere with it! How?
By removing their children from the corrupting resources
they help fund and/or create for the rest of us. They:
Preach family unity at the dinner table. They have an "it's

Live in a society where the system favors the White and
wealthy in America to the point where they have been given

Teach and instill leadership qualities in their children,
particularly the sons, so that they can protect the family
and its interests, when the time comes.
In-laws do not play a significant role. It is all about the
However, these are examples. Muslims should never look to
the kuffar as examples for how to behave. We have the Qur'an
and the authentic Hadith to guide us. There are preparations
that we should make as a family. For instance, if a relative
with a mental illness starts to act-out, there should be a
family emergency plan in place to handle this matter. There
have been instances where the police have been called and it
resulted in the mentally-ill loved one being murdered.
It is important to promote leadership among our children,
boys and girls. Many Muslim families engage in kuffar male
chauvinist practices that devalue females and allow boys to
shirk their responsibilities. In many Black-American
non-Muslim families, the girls are allowed and encouraged to
speak up and even physically fight for themselves. But, the
boys are reigned in and disciplined for being vociferous and
are scolded for fighting. The girls are given chores and
responsibilities while the boys can lounge around the home
and sleep all day. Boys are emasculated and told to go along
to get along out of fear of being seen as too aggressive by
their White counterparts. This produces a lopsided culture
where the females are on the front lines, while the Male is
in the back cowering behind them.
Please, do not think that this child-rearing concept is ONLY
found in homes headed by single mothers, because it's
American society has brainwashed Black people and made it
difficult to raise male Black warriors. Islamic teachings
provide a balance in the home that a secular government
cannot and is not intended to provide. Islam teaches that
the male and female are to protect one another (Quran 9:73).
Respect is the foundation of all relationships. Instilling
these values in the home would be a very strong starting
point, regardless how many hours the parent works. It is a
matter of how strong the desire is to empower the family. A
strong family bond, developed the right way, can overcome
