Hadith of the Week
Do not affirm or rebut the teachings of others' Scriptures.
Abu Huraira, r.a., narrates: The People of the Book used to
read the Torah in Hebrew and explained it to Muslims in
Arabic. The Messenger of Allah, pbuh, said: Do not affirm or
rebut the People of the Book . Only say to them: We believe
in Allah and in that which has been revealed for us [sura
[Hadith in Sahih Bukhari 16-88.]
Comment by Kaukab Siddique: Many Muslims debate the
Christians and Jews and get entangled in debates with them,
or try to show friendship by affirming what is in their
scriptures. These activities either create bad blood between
religions or lead Muslims to assimilate with non-Muslims.
Focus on the Oneness of Allah and on that which was revealed
to the Prophet, pbuh.
Given by Allah Almighty to Hajira, r.a., the founder of
Makka, in the middle of the Arabian desert

Jamaate Islami Inaugurates Eye Hospital in Deep
Leader Condemns burden of World Bank & IMF
by Qaisher Sharif
LAHORE, Sep. 9; Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakitsan, Senator
Sirajul Haq, has said that the wrong policies of the
government had ruined the country's economy and burdened her
under IMF and World Bank debts. He was talking to the media
after inaugurating the Dr Zahoor Eye hospital at Pabbi, on
The JI chief said that the government had secured nine
billion dollars loan from the IMF and the World bank during
one year and every child in the country was under debt of
Rs. one lakh seven thousand.
He announced that the JI would hold a big rally in
Faisalabad on September 29, against corruption, lawlessness
and the Panama leaks scandal.
He said that the interest system was expanding and trade was
shrinking in the country mainly due to lawlessness and
corruption. He said that interest based banking, the British
law in the courts and co-education system could not end
without the setting up of an Islamic government. The Islamic
system was essential for the provision of justice to the
masses, he added.
Sirajul Haq said that the JI drive against corruption had
been started almost a year ago and it had gained vast public
support. He said the JI was the only political party in the
country whose cadres were free from the charges of
corruption, and that was why its "Corruption Free Pakistan
drive had gained massive public support and the general
public too was demanding action against the corrupt.
Replying to a question, he said that it was PTI's own
decision to march to Raiwind for the "gherao" of the Sharif
Brothers. He said that the opposition was united in the
parliament and had jointly framed the ToRs on the Panama
leaks issue. However, outside the parliament, all the
parties were free in their decisions.
Sirajul Haq said that the private educational and health
institutions in the country were a ray of hope for the poor.
He was sure that the Dr Zahoor Eye hospital would provide
best medical facilities to the patients in the area.
Earlier, the JI chief took a round of the hospital and was
briefed about the facilities made available to the patients.
He was informed that the hospital had been established in
memory of Shaheed Dr Zahurul Islam and it would benefit
large number of people from the area.
The ceremony was presided over by the district chief of the
PML(N), Haji Noor Muhammad. The speakers on the occasion
included JI provincial chief Mushtaq Ahmed Khan, Asif Luqman
Qazi, Dr Abdul Ma'lik, and JI district chief Haji Anwarul

The Ummah Concept in Hajj & the Spirit of Sacrifice in Eid
al-Adha. US Muslims could have tried to help Avoid 9.11. Why
Have US Muslims Failed so Miserably?
On September 9, Br. Kaukab Siddique gave the juma khutba at
masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in Baltimore. The masjid was
packed with people of various nationalities but it is a
small mosque, so this outline on the Internet should reach
many more people.
That evening a peace rally was held near the masjid owing to
the violent crime which had taken place in the non-Muslim
community the previous week.
"O my son! I have seen in a dream that I offer you in
sacrifice. Now see what is your view? [The son] said 'O my
father! Do as you are commanded. You will find me , if Allah
so Wills, one of the steadfast.' [The Qur'an 37;102]
Ibn Umar, r.a., narrates: The messenger of Allah lived in
Madinah for ten years and sacrificed animals every year.
[Hadith. Sunan of Tirmidhi.]
As the pilgrims in their pilgrims move towards the
completion of the Hajj, the basic message of Islam is: We
are ONE Ummah, with ONE Allah, One qiblah, ONE leader
Muhammad, pbuh, One Book the Qur'an. All races, all
ethnicities, all nationalities, all languages, both genders
are EQUAL in Islam.
Even with the greatest human organizer with all the money
at his disposal could not have brought about this attraction
towards one focal point, with everyone using his/her own
The Hajj is a message to all Muslims to prepare for the
Hereafter to be judged for their deeds. Standing there in
their shrouds [kafan like] garment, the pilgrims assert that
Allah is their Lord and they are at His service.
If this unity moves to reality instead of being only a
ritual, the TWO BILLION Muslims of the world could just walk
over "Israel" and liberate PALESTINE with a minimum of
sacrifice. Unity is the essence of Hajj.
For those not in the Hajj, the sacrifice on Eid al-Adha
is central. Ibrahim [Abraham] was given this final test of
his acceptance of Allah's Will. Most people do not notice
the CENTRAL part of the verse. He asked his son, Ismail,
what he thought of it. The son was as accepting of Allah's
Will as was the father. At the last moment, Allah stopped
the two from carrying it out and gave them the symbolic
sacrifice of the animal which Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, taught
us to carry out to perfection.
The message to us is: Are we willing to sacrifice
anything in our lives for the sake of Islam? Can we
sacrifice time, money, our abilities, place in society, our
ego or our arrogance, our enmities, rivalries, personality
We can get out of our comfort zone by speaking out for
justice and honesty. Speaking out is not only our duty [as
in the hadith narrated by Abu Saeed al-Khudri, r.a, ] but
its also our right under the US Constitution.
What is our role to bring an end to the war which is
being waged against Islam globally? As you know, US Muslims
are among the richest, educationally most qualified, most
communicative Muslims in the world. Can we make even a small
sacrifice to stop the war against our Ummah?
The Muslim elites in America are in alliance with the
American power structure and have castrated the power and
ability of the 7 to 9 million Muslims of America to give the
honest message of Islam. Look at what has happened.
Gaza was invaded three times. Our self-imposed leaders
didn't say a word to condemn Israel.
Africa has been re-colonized and looted of its wealth.
We did not say anything although some Black organizations
Our countries have been bombed, invaded, occupied.
Millions of Muslims have been killed or wounded by the
western powers. America and Europe have been and are in
league with the tyrants, the dictators, the kings, the
traitors who are often, if not always, installed by the West
in Muslim countries.
The attacks on 9.11 are being mourned by America. The
amazing part of this mourning is that it is being conducted
as if it had no cause. That our country is totally innocent
and our high value targets were hit without any reason by
That's where US Muslims have failed miserably. We should
have exercised our constitutional right to speak to tell the
American people that:
ONE MILLION IRAQIS died a slow death owing to US
sanctions. Of these 500,000 approximately were
Palestine belongs to the Palestinians, not to the Jews.
Israel attacked Gaza again and again and again on flimsy
pretexts and we did not speak out. We should have screamed.
The most horrendous crimes against humanity were committed
by the Israeli Jews including the murder of more a thousand
children in air strikes.
The holy cities of Islam, Makka and Madinah, came under
the umbrella of the US military. Al-Aqsa was already
occupied and desecrated.
We should have used our skills in communication to
inform the American people that these are acts of war not
against Muslims but Islam itself. Don't do this otherwise
someone from over there might strike back at you. Osama had
already stated that he would strike at American soft
Nothing touched our souls. While the Iraqi children were
dying of malnutrition and disease owing to the sanctions,

Even when homosexuality is legitimized, our self-styled
leaders dare not speak out. Is anyone threatening them? No.
They were silent before 9.11 and they have been groveling at
the feet of the oppressors ever since.
See how the African American communities worked with the
people of America to end Apartheid in South Africa? Why cant
we work for Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq?
Our silence has emboldened the government so much that
it never seeks the viewpoint of any Muslim who might be
critical of its policies. Remember, that groveling does not
get you anywhere in America. Dr. Martin Luther King left his
comfortable home to march in the streets against racism.
Sacrifice your ego. Take a little risk. Speak out
against the bombing which America carries out EVERY DAY
against Islamic groups. The Zionist media demonize the
Islamic fighters and then the air force goes and bombs them.
Imagine B-52s and B1s being used against people who have NO
Never break the law. Never become violent. Speak out.
Communicate with Muslims and non-Muslims. Even our children
are top of the line with computers. Even if one million
Muslims tell the White House that the bombing is a crime
against humanity, things will change. The ummah is not dead.
We US Muslims are "dead." If our country keeps blowing up
the ummah, sooner or later someone will hit our country.
Cause and effect.
Work for peace by opposing the war against Muslims.
Keeping quiet will only encourage the Zionists who are
always calling for attacks on the Muslim world.

Good News! Charges dropped against African Muslim who killed
wife's attempted Rapist.
By Sis. Aisha (Jamaat al-Muslimeen )
New York City - Al-humdulillah! Manslaughter charges have
been dropped against Mamadou Diallo, a Muslim husband
charged in the killing of his wife's would-be rapist, Earl
Nash. Even Nash's family members asked that the charges be
dropped against the 61 year old cab driver. The charges were
dropped on Tuesday, September 6th. His license was suspended
after his May 31st arrest but, it was due to be reinstated
Wednesday, September 7th.
On May 31st, Earl Nash kicked his way into The Diallo
apartment, exposed himself to Mrs. Diallo and proceeded to
tear her clothes off. Diallo's wife was able to make a
frantic call to her husband, who was not home at the time,
while one of her cousins fought Nash off. Mamadou met his
wife's attacker outside as he tried to escape by taking the
elevator. However, his wife pointed Nash out to him.
The video shows Nash shirtless and with his pants hanging
off his buttocks. At one point, during the skirmish on the
elevator, Nash beat Mamadou Diallo with a belt and this is
when Mamadou struck back hitting Nash multiple times in the
head with a tire iron. An autopsy revealed that Earl Nash
had cocaine in his system.
The fact that Mamadou Diallo was charged at all shows how
uncivilized American society has become, in the new
millennium. In some states, in order to claim self-defense,
you have to have tried to escape your attacker until you
could not run anymore. How illogical and absurd!
You should not have to be afraid of your attacker! Some laws
will refer to self-defense as vigilantism. Technically, the
prosecutor could argue that once Nash left the scene that
Mamadou's wife was no longer being threatened and that he
had no legal cause to go after him. What???!!!
But, people are convicted everyday based on such absurd,
sociopathic arguments. It is no wonder that women and
children in this society are left so exposed to these types
of crimes without any chance of justice from the legal
Self-defense laws have been scrambled because of the prison
industrial complex. Crimes that once warranted a ticket,
trying to ride for free on a New York City subway, now
require jail time! Corporations are making money off of this
and the police, prosecutors, and judges are working together
to do their part.
In Tirnidhi's Hadith, the penalty for rape is death. Not
only did Earl Nash try to rape another man's wife but, he
also assaulted the husband, as well. Mamadou Diallo was only
trying to protect himself and his family, which is what a
Muslim husband is supposed to do. I am wondering if Diallo
would have been arrested and charged with anything if he had
been a Hasidim husband defending his wife.
Initially, when he was arrested, Diallo was released without
bail, which was probably a good sign. Al-humdulillah, he
gets to be at home with his family!
