Hadith of the Week
Narrated By Ibn Shihab Az-Zuhri:
Anas bin Malik said, "When the emigrants came Medina, they
had nothing whereas the Ansar had land and property. The
Ansar gave them their land on condition that the emigrants
would give them half the yearly yield and work on the land
and provide the necessaries for cultivation." His (i.e.
Anas's mother who was also the mother of 'Abdullah bin Abu
Talha, gave some date-palms to Allah's Apostle who gave them
to his freed slave-girl (Um Aiman) who was also the mother
of Usama bin Zaid. When the Prophet finished from the
fighting against the people of Khaibar and returned to
Medina, the emigrants returned to the Ansar the fruit gifts
which the Ansar had given them. The Prophet also returned to
Anas's mother the date-palms. Allah's Apostle gave Um Aiman
other trees from his garden in lieu of the old gift

Political Prisoners :
Three US Muslims Sentenced for non-Violent Support for
Sentencing hearings are wrapping up for nine men convicted
of plotting to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State
The final three defendants — Guled Omar, Mohamed Farah
and Abdirahman Daud — will be sentenced Wednesday.
Prosecutors say the 22-year-old men are part of a group of
friends in Minnesota's large Somali community who inspired
each other to join the militant group.
Six men who pleaded guilty were sentenced on Monday and
Omar, Farah and Daud took their case to trial and were
convicted of conspiracy to provide material support to a
foreign terrorist organization, as well as a more serious
count of conspiracy to commit murder outside the U.S.
That count carries a possible life sentence, but prosecutors
are seeking sentences of 40 and 30 years.
This is a developing news update. The Associated Press'
earlier story follows...
Three men were sentenced to prison Tuesday for plotting to
travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group, as a
federal judge concluded the second day of sentencings in a
case that shined a light on terror recruiting in the
Adnan Farah, 20, and Hanad Musse, 21, were each sentenced to
10 years in prison for conspiring to provide material
support to a foreign terrorist organization. Hamza Ahmed,
21, was sentenced to 15 years in prison for that count and
another count of financial aid fraud.
All three were also given at least 20 years of supervised
They are among nine men in Minnesota's large Somali
community who prosecutors say were part of a group of
friends who inspired and recruited each other to join the
militant group. Some of their friends made it to Syria, but
the nine who were prosecuted did not.
Their sentencings come a day after three of their
co-defendants were sentenced, including two who cooperated
with authorities and were given lighter penalties. Farah,
Musse, Ahmed, and the other man sentenced Monday all pleaded
guilty but did not cooperate with prosecutors.
Three men who went to trial and were convicted on a more
serious charge of conspiracy to commit murder outside the
U.S. will be sentenced Wednesday. That count carries a
possible life sentence, but prosecutors are seeking
sentences of 30 or 40 years.
At his hearing, Farah, whose older brother is among those to
be sentenced Wednesday, criticized the Somali community for
not taking radicalization seriously. But prosecutors said he
was shifting blame.
U.S. District Judge Michael Davis addressed the courtroom
and said he has no doubt there is a jihadi cell in
Minneapolis. He also addressed Farah's parents, telling them
their children lied.
"I would never want to be in your place, having two sons
that are going to go to prison," Davis said.
During his hearing, Musse apologized for lying to his family
and said he committed a serious offense. The judge asked
Musse directly whether he was a terrorist, and Musse
replied: "I am a terrorist, your honor."
Musse, Ahmed and two other men took a Greyhound bus from
Minneapolis to New York in November 2014 and were stopped by
federal agents as they tried to travel overseas from JFK
Airport, according to authorities. The men were being
watched as part of an ongoing investigation into terror
Ahmed told the court on Tuesday that he was grateful he was
pulled off the airplane, acknowledging it probably saved his
life. He also acknowledged that he has some work to do.
"I want you to understand I am not completely changed,"
Ahmed told Davis. "I'm in the process, but nobody changes
overnight. I'm trying every day. I want to reach that
Davis, who has handled all of Minnesota's terror conspiracy
cases, had the six defendants who pleaded guilty evaluated
by a German expert on deradicalization and is taking those
findings into consideration.
The investigation into terror recruiting in Minnesota is
ongoing. The state has the largest concentration of Somali
immigrants in the U.S. —numbering 57,000, according to
U.S. Census data — which has been a target for
recruiters. The FBI has said about a dozen people have left
Minnesota to join militant groups in Syria in recent years.
Before that, more than 22 men were recruited to al-Shabab in
Somalia since 2007.
American Boys are Not Aware of Difference Between Consent
and Assault in Dealing with Women.

American Society does not teach its boys anything about the
human body, including how their body functions, nor sex.
Many Americans are still growing up believing so-called
wives tales about what can cause or not cause a pregnancy. A
huge problem in America is that boys are not being
instructed on what constitutes consensual sex and what
In 2000, while a sophomore, Nate Parker, the director for
the new movie The Birth of a Nation, which is about Nat
Turner's rebellions against slavery, was accused of rape
while a student at Penn State University. He and a wrestling
teammate/roommate, Jean McGianni Celestin, had sex with a
female student. Both were later accused of having sex with
her while she was drunk or unconscious. The accuser did go
to a doctor, who determined that she had been sexually
Nate Parker had been acquitted but his roommate, Jean
McGianni Celestin was convicted. However, his conviction was
overturned citing legal misconduct but the prosecutor
declined to bring new charges against him in 2005 because
the original trial witnesses were scattered all around the
world. In 2012, the accuser committed suicide.
In 2015, a federal civil lawsuit was filed by another
unidentified accuser in a rape case brought against NBA
player Derrick Rose and his two friends (Ryan Allen and
Randall Hampton). They were accused of drugging and gang
raping her in her apartment on August 23, 2013. They
maintained that the sex was consensual.
She was suing for $21 million but, on 10/19/2016, an 8
member Los Angeles jury acquitted the three men. What saved
them was the accuser's sexting Rose and asking him to stop
by her house for sex, as well as to bring back some items
she had left at his home. It was discovered during the trial
that the accuser's attorneys held on to this evidence, which
was illegal. However, the Judge did not call a mistrial.
Group sex, casual sex, etc.., whether it is consensual or
not, seems to be the trademark experience of the American
kafir male. They are not taught anything about sex,
certainly nothing about the morality of sex after marriage.
These boys learn about sex from school, their friends, or
the street. What is worse is how they all learn to mistreat
I remember watching date rape prevention videos in school
and them teaching viewers that "no means no." Now, there
seems to be a different scenario when a female is
unconscious and raped. She does not get the option to give
her consent or not.
College and the military have proven to be dangerous places
for women. These environments are where men prey on women
sexually. There are guys who get a thrill out of having
sexual encounters with unconscious women. During these kinds
of rape trials, the accused is always asked if they know the
definition of consensual sex. Unfortunately, many defendants
do not but it does not mean a crime was not committed.
What makes it worse is that the justice system tends to be
lenient to people actually convicted of rape. For some
reason, prosecutors are willing to offer very lenient plea
deals, whereas with unarmed bank robbers they seek the
The reason why these guys get into these pinches is because
of the pervasive belief that fornicating is a male right.
They also have no one to guide them on having a healthy
moral relationship with a woman. They learn to view most
women as sex objects with the sole purpose of satisfying
Derrick Rose was already in a relationship with his former
fiance Mieka Reese, who gave birth to his son in October
2012. However, the court papers say that he was in an open
relationship with his accuser from 2011 to 2013. There was
definitely some overlap here since he had been dating Mieka
Reese since before 2008, in high school. They are broken up,
now. So, there are co-parents rather than husband and
Many of these types of rape allegations (false or genuine)
will continue to turn up because boys are not being educated
properly and they are being encouraged to engage in immoral
sexually deviant behavior. Unfortunately, it is not just the
non-Muslim male. There are Secular Muslim boys who are being
raised the good old-fashioned American way. Now, girls are
following close behind with such ignorance.
In many instances, the kaafirun want to marry the chaste
Christians/Muslims who maintained their chastity all of
their lives. It's not right.
"You must not intermarry with them. Do not let your
daughters and sons marry their sons and daughters,"
(Deuteronomy 7:3) and
"Wed not idolatresses till they believe; for lo! a believing
captive is better than an idolatress though she please you;
and give not your daughters in marriage to idolaters till
they believe, for lo! a believing captive is better than an
idolater though he please you. These invite unto the Fire,
and Allah inviteth unto the Garden, and unto forgiveness by
His grace, and expoundeth His revelations to mankind that
haply they may remember." (Qur'an 2:221).
The Qur'an takes it a step further by adding: Surah an-Nisa
24:3 = "The fornicator may not marry except a female
fornicator or polytheist, and the female fornicator none may
marry her except a male fornicator or a polytheist, and that
has been made unlawful to the believers."
Note: It is advised that marriage between a non-fornicator
and a repentant one is lawful, at some of the Muslim sites I
have visited. It is important to gauge someone's opinion of
premarital sex: Has he stopped doing it because he is now
bored with it or is it because he considers it immoral?

"If ye help not (your leader), (it is no matter): for Allah
did indeed help him, when the Unbelievers drove him out: he
had no more than one companion; they two were in the cave,
and he said to his companion,"Have no fear, for Allah is

Allah is exalted to the heights: for Allah is Exalted in

For decades America's Muslims were ruled by groups who
claimed that they respected the rights of Muslims and were
not at war with Islam. Meanwhile they bombed, invaded and
occupied Muslim countries. They killed tens of thousands of
Muslims, wounded and arrested millions and implanted
dictators in Muslim countries.
These ruling groups devised clever ways of manipulating,
dividing and using Muslims against other Muslims. They
claimed that those Muslims who opposed the West were

Muslims, especially new Muslim immigrants.
Although Trump is now backpedalling his extreme
statements, and may arrive at a decent level of behavior by
January 20, there is great danger for those whom he
criticized, in particular Muslims.
Previous media propaganda against Muslims by the Zionists
was largely ineffective because it came from Jews and
Zionists who are not significant in the total 300 million
population of America.
Trump's invective and aura of suspicion and threat have
reached the larger White population. If these millions of
White people start trying to hurt Muslims, the threat level
for Muslims will go out of control.
My advice is as follows: Don't take every White person
as an enemy or potentially threatening. Most people in
America are decent people. The great work done by Dr. Martin
Luther King and Malcolm X has helped many White Americans to
understand that Muslims and Black people are oppressed and
Though we might face attacks, they will come from fringe
groups of Whites but more crucially from people whom we
might not easily notice, who look and talk like us. Check
the role of informants in the previous administration.
We must stand UNITED, foot to foot, shoulder to
shoulder. Forget about your sects and Schools of Thought. We
welcome all Muslims who accept the finality of prophethood,

Spotlights from Br. Badi
Strange Behavior of Immigrants after Trump Victory.
Everything happens by the Will of Allah (SWT)
Allah (SWT) is in control. Allah (SWT) gives power and He
can take it away.
There is wisdom in everything that Allah (SWT) allows to
happen. There are no coincidences or mistakes.
A few years ago, a friend of mine received his green card
from the immigration center. The first things he said was,
"I hate foreigners."
If you asked any immigrant before the election about Trump,
most of them would state negative remarks about him. But I'm
sure that most of them voted for Trump because these
immigrants do not mind bringing their own families and
relatives to the USA, but when it comes to other immigrants
they want the opposite. This is because they know the cost
of being an immigrant - whether illegal or legal.
Some of the people I know think that using and abusing the
system as well as stealing from the government, is not
stealing. To them it is an art. Some of them teach stealing
as well as how to defraud the system, thinking that this is
a righteous deed. Stealing is stealing. Fraud is fraud. And
they are both haram. The person who does it, teaches it,
allows it and gives fatwa is nothing but a thief.
When Batman is not a Batman, then people do not mind the
A lot of countries do not just allow immigrants into their
countries. They specifically give their natural born
citizens certain privileges and rights. For example, in the
UAE (United Arab Emirates), you cannot enter the country
without a Visa. This Visa also prohibits you from
overstaying, earning a citizenship or having a permanent
residency. In fact, your conditional residency or Visa can
be terminated anytime and without explanation.
Since the election, a lot of people have come to me with
several different scenarios about the future expectations
and outcomes regarding Trump, Presidency. Some are even
beginning to justify takingoff the hijab, or changing their
name from Mohammad to "Moe." Others complain that the masjid
will be scrutinized because of Trump.Listen; under Trump or
Obama, as a Muslim, everything is in Allah's (SWT) hands.
And everything happens because Allah (SWT) allows it. So
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: "If the whole world were to
gather together in order to harm you; they would not harm
you except if God has written so."
Wake up. Get involved.
Iraq: Week 5
A Week of Defeat for the US-backed Armada: videos of Tanks

November 13 to 20. The massive Iraqi Shiite armada backed by
steady US air strikes could not move forward for a whole
week. The regime forces entered the eastern edge of Mosul
and held for a whole week but their attempts to move into
Mosul met with serious setback as Islamic State mujahideen
hit them with martyrdom operators in truck bombs, snipers
and mortar fire.

the regime is not giving out numbers but local medical
sources noted steady stream of dead and wounded.
On its side, the Islamic State issued videos of tanks and

o Nazar Publishing, 43 Highbarry Cr., Kitchener, ON N2N 3P5,
Canada., September 2010. 637 pages.
The book is in the Urdu language but an important aspect of
it needs to be discussed in English because it relates to
the propaganda against Islam in America which came under the
rubric of "moderate Islam."
America did not want America's highly educated Muslim
minority to speak against its aggression in the Muslim
world. Wahiduddin was exactly the right person to soothe and
de-activate the large Urdu speaking section of the American

admiration for Gandhi. No genuine Islamic person would

well and he could not fool Jinnah, the founder of
Nadwi details Wahiduddin's attempts to undermine the
Qur'an's teachings on Jihad and destroys Wahid's thoughts by
comparing him with Iqbal and Maudoodi. Apparently Wahid was
bent upon giving the Qur'anic verses meaning which was sheer
distortion. Similar attempts were made earlier in Indian
history by Mirza Ghulam Qadiani whose followers are known as
"Ahmdeddis." With the emergence of Pakistan, Muslims became
strong enough to declare Mirza and his followers as
non-Muslims. However under the aegis of India, Wahiduddin
Nadwi took the trouble to analyze Wahiduddin's use of hadith
to spread the concept of "moderate Islam." Nadwi is able to
illustrate vividly that Wahid was dishonest. Wahid simply
quoted hadith in such a way that he left out that portion of
various hadith which make it impossible to preach "moderate
Islam does not accept the western way of life. Islam is
compassionate and tolerant but it is a complete way of life
which cannot be fragmented without being unIslam. There is
no way around it.
Nadwi has some interesting comments on why intellectuals who
were part of Jamaate Islami turn around and try to undermine
its message. The case of Wahid and that of others like him
is that they are not given cutting edge responsibilities in
the Jamaat. They hang on as members of the Jamaat year after
year before they cut themselves loose and take on a totally
antagonistic viewpoint. These are supporters of Jamaat only
in name but Jamaat gets blamed for the nefarious activities
they undertake after leaving.
The irony of the book is that it includes numerous letters
Nadwi exchanged with Ghamidi. These are boring
inconsequential letters which indicate that Ghamidi was part
of Jamaate Islami. Nadwi had no way of knowing that Ghamidi
would follow the same process of detachment from Jamaate
Islami which Wahiduddin did. Ghamidi too broke away from the
Jamaat in recent years and is today teaching "moderate
Islam" and is a vocal opponent of mujahedeen.
There is a middle class element in Jamaate Islami which
admires the West and weakens and splits when the pressure
Notice that Jamaate Islami did not carry out salatul janaza
for Shaykh Usama bin Laden.
The book also contains considerable information about the
lives of Pakistanis who have settled down in Canada, a
western society which is undergoing social disintegration
and the disruption of the family system.
Sareere Khama is a valuable book for Indo-Pakistanis living
in western countries. It is a polite but devastating expose
of "moderate Islam."
Thousands rally against blasphemy in Jakarta. Tens of
thousands in Jakarta demand the resignation of its governor
who they say committed blasphemy.
One person was killed as Indonesian police fired tear gas
and water cannon to disperse tens of thousands of protesters
who rallied to demand the resignation of the Christian
governor of Jakarta for allegedly insulting the Quran.
At least seven people were injured in clashes between
demonstrators and police, Jakarta police spokesman Awi
Setiyono said on Friday.
An elderly man died, possibly from the effects of tear gas,
said Setiyono, adding four civilians and three police
officers were hurt.
Tens of thousands of protesters called for Jakarta's
governor to be prosecuted for blasphemy in the massive
demonstration. A sea of protesters wearing white robes took
to the streets in a huge show of force against Governor
Basuki Tjahaja Purnama.
Indonesian capital on high alert ahead of anti-governor
Indonesian police fired tear gas to disperse protesters near
the presidential palace, local televison reported.
Some protesters threw plastic bottles at officers who had
formed a barricade.
The protest was triggered by accusations that Purnama,
better known by his nickname Ahok, insulted Islam by
criticising opponents who used Quranic references to attack
him ahead of an election in February.
Purnama apologised for the remarks, but his opponents have
built a groundswell of support calling for his arrest and
incarceration under Indonesia's tough blasphemy laws.
"He is not Muslim but he humiliated the Quran," protester
Muhammad Said told Reuters news agency. "Don't refer to

number of sickbays and infirmaries etc. existed in the area
of the Auschwitz camp. The present book gives an overview of
the camp's organizational and historical development in this
In the first part of this book, the author analyzes the
inmates' living conditions as well as the various sanitary
and medical measures implemented to maintain or restore the
The second part explores what happened in particular to
those inmates registered at Auschwitz who were "selected" or
subject to "special treatment" while disabled or sick. The
comprehensive documentation presented shows clearly that
everything was tried to cure these inmates, especially under
the aegis of Garrison Physician Dr. Wirths.
The last part of this book is dedicated to the remarkable
personality of Dr. Wirths, the Auschwitz garrison physician
since 1942. His reality refutes the current stereotype of SS
officers. In this context, the statements by the former
communist concentration camp survivor Hermann Langbein are
