Hadith of the Week
Masruq reported: We asked Abdullah ibn Mas'ud,r.a.,about
Do not think those who are killed in the way of Allah are
dead. Rather, they are alive with their provision in the
presence of their Lord. Surat Ali Imran 3:169
Abdullah said: We asked the Messenger of Allah, peace and
blessings be upon him, about this verse and he said:
The souls of martyrs are alive in the bodies of green birds
who have their nests in chandeliers hanging from the Throne
of the Almighty. They eat the fruits of Paradise from
wherever they wish and they nestle among these chandeliers.
Once their Lord cast a glance at them and he said: Do you
want anything? They said: What more could we desire? We eat
the fruit of Paradise from wherever we wish. Their Lord
asked them the same question three times. When they saw that
they will continue to be asked, they said: O Lord, we wish
that you could return our souls to our bodies so that we
could be martyred in your way once again. When Allah saw
that they had no needs, he left them to enjoy.

Jamaat al-Muslimeen Decries Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman's
Political Imprisonment and Death in Captivity
Jamaat al-Muslimeen National Majlis-e-Shura member
February 18, 2017
February 18, 2017, is a dismal day in the history of the
United States, even by its own genocidal standards. On this
day, Islamic scholar Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman, also known as
"the Blind Sheikh," died a political prisoner of the U.S.
government. To multitudes of Muslims the world over, he will
be viewed as a martyr of Islam. The American mainstream
might better understand Muslim sentiment if they considered
how they might feel if Pope Francis—or another beloved
religious figure— was imprisoned in a Muslim country,
allowed virtually no contact with constituents, followers,
and family, and then left to die a slow painful death from
untreated (but treatable) medical conditions.
A visionary, Dr. Abdel Rahman articulately and consistently
spoke out against the U.S.-backed Egyptian dictatorship of
Hosni Mubarak decades prior to the Arab Spring, insisting
that the resources of Muslim countries, including Egypt, be
used for the betterment of those countries--and not be
pilfered by Western Powers or multinational corporations.
These basic and seemingly logical demands were rewarded with
imprisonment and torture by the Egyptian regime.
Fleeing the Egyptian regime's torture, Dr. Abdel Rahman
sought political asylum in the U.S., which he viewed as a
land of freedom of expression, and whose laws he repeatedly
emphasized must, in accordance with Islamic rules on
guest-host relations, be respected by all Muslims who sought
asylum therein, including himself.
Far from being accorded freedom of expression, he was
brought up on trumped up charges, tried in a climate of
utter fear and emotion, and, in 1995, convicted of
conspiracy to bomb New York landmarks, almost entirely on
the word of an informant who was paid over a million
Although he undoubtedly knew he was facing decades of jail
time, he stood before the Court, unafraid of all but the
Creator. His final words before being marched off into the
American Gulag were a telling: "Fuzto Be Rab-e-Ka'aba" ("By
the Lord of the Ka'aba, I have succeeded").
The blind, elderly, diabetic scholar of Islam was detained
and held for over 20 years under what can only be described
as conditions of "Cruel and Unusual" punishment. Since he
could neither see nor speak to his captors (he was blind and
spoke no English); was barely allowed a monthly phone call
to his family in Egypt; and was held in solitary
confinement, he no doubt suffered all of the psychological
trauma associated with long-term solitary captivity. On top
of that, his advanced stage diabetes went untreated for
months on end, until its effects, including gangrene, were
irreversible, and he was finally relocated to the Butner
Medical Center in North Carolina, where he would ultimately
die. His family's hunger strikes and appeals to the
(post-Arab Spring Egyptian) regime of Muhammad Morsi for his
repatriation to Egypt were fruitless, and Dr. Omar Abdel
Rahman—loved throughout much of Egypt and the Islamic
world—died alone, a slow painful death from
The long-term political imprisonment and death in captivity
of Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman seems part of a trend by the U.S.
and its proxies to silence all independent, vocal, and
effective Muslim leadership, and in particularly those who
hold the title of imam, a position of high honor and respect
in the Muslim community. It seems that the only imams of
major mosques permitted to operate freely are those who
kowtow to the government; bandy American flags on Muslim
religious institutions; welcome video monitoring of their
mosques; and encourage or allow censorship of their own
words and those of their constituents by the
authorities—clearly compromising their faith, as well
as American principles of :"Separation of Church and
The death of a renowned and respected Islamic scholar under
such circumstances is an abomination. Dr. Omar Abdel
Rahman's treatment in captivity clearly violated both
American laws on the treatment of prisoners (set out in the
Bureau of Prison regulations), as well as numerous
international laws. Jamaat al-Muslimeen decries Dr. Omar
Abdel Rahman's political imprisonment on trumped up charges,
and laments his tragic death under clearly dehumanizing
Acts of Grave Injustice and Treachery which put Dr. Omar
Abdel Rahman in Prison for Life.
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD
A great scholar has returned to his Creator. Dr. Omar Abdel
Rahman was Hafize Qur'an and Hafize Sahih Bukhari.
Why did Allah Almighty allow Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman to suffer
for so long, 20 years, in solitary confinement, a helpless
blind man suffering from diabetes and other ailments. My
surmise is that the Muslims of America were being tested and
the Muslims, with few exceptions, failed miserably.
Most people, including many Muslims, do not know these
verifiable facts which put a sentence of life and 65 years
on the greatest teacher of the Qur'an in our times.
The judge in the case of Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman was a
Zionist Jew, Michael Mukasey, who later became attorney
general. A Muslim organization helped the government to
claim that the judge did not have to recuse himself
[although his wife was an active worker for Israel].
During the trial, emergency would be suddenly declared to
give the impression that the building itself, in mid town
Manhattan would be attacked by the Shaykh's supporters.
The government used the media to disseminate the false
claim that an Islamic "terrorist" army had infiltrated
America in support of the Shaykh and could attack at any
Jurors were allowed to read the media which were full of
bizarre stories against the Shaykh. TIME magazine connected
him with David Koresh  on its COVER.
SIRAJ WAHHAJ played the dirtiest role in helping the
Zionists to sentence the Blind Shaykh. He was called as a
defense witness but he supported the prosecution by
claiming, without being asked about it, that the Shaykh
supported "robbing banks." This dastardly crook Siraj Wahhaj
does not know Arabic and thus could not have known what the
Shaykh said at a meeting in the mosque. He volunteered this
Not only was Siraj unrepentant, he glorified himself in
a huge friendly interview with the Wall Street Journal. He
also boasted of his ties with the government in particular
Medeleine Albright, a US Secretary of State who justified
the slow death of 500,000 Iraqi children under US sanctions
[which probably instigated the 9.11 attacks].
Siraj WahhaJ was the idol of ICNA, CAIR and ISNA for
years as the epitome of Islamic truth! These groups for
decades had close ties with the FBI which helped it to
infiltrate Muslim communities all over America.
In prison, Shaykh Omar was mistreated and he could not
complain because he did not know English. Owing to prison
rules for "cavity" searches, he had a problem accepting
visitors. Later ALL VISITS TO HIM WERE PROHIBITED. His
attorney, Lynne Stewart, was imprisoned for divulging what
he had said during a visit through a translator [as was the
All this was done to please Hosni Mubarak, the dictator of
Egypt, who was in a close relationship with America and kept
Egypt in a HARAM relationship with Israel.
Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman is free now, a martyr when he was
buried alive. InshalAllah he is getting the best treatment
from Allah Almighty.
Special Thanks go to Sis. Ayesha Jones and Br. Ali Randall
for monitoring the conditions of the Shaykh during his last
days. They repeatedly called the medical prison in Butner,
NC., where he was being held, sometimes waiting on the
phone 40 minutes at a time.
We have received a continuing stream of messages condoling
the passing of the Bllnd Shaykh, including 1200 likes in one
day on facebook.

I am so sad to hear about the Shaykh's passing. I remember
making calls and writing emails, with your support and
encouragement, on his behalf while in college. He has always
been in my prayers. I am in awe of his strength to endure so
much suffering for all this time.

Upper/middle Class Muslim Americans: Feeling Threatened as
if it's the end of the World owing to Trump
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD
Jamaat al-Muslimeen urged Muslims to realize that both
political parties have anti-Islam viewpoints and we should
not vote for either. Upper class Muslim Americans as usual
ignored the Jamaat advice and voted for Hillary. They all
fervently believed that Hillary would win. They are now in a
state of shock because Trump won.
Obama's people went into action immediately after Hillary's
defeat. Thousands demonstrated in the streets, the very next
day after Trump's victory.
The media also went into action. A massive campaign was
launched to delegitimize Trump's victory. Well orchestrated
deception was set in motion. Look at this:
Trump's plan to stop people coming in from 7 countries
was actually started by Obama. The problem at the airports
was created by a much sterner Trump order which officials
took to mean that green card holders were also blocked. Once
that was cleared up, flights resumed. However, the upper
class Muslims felt terrorized and have become complete
slaves of the Hillary-Obama-Zionist machine.
Muslims of the upper/middle class have opened themselves
to pro-Democrat propaganda on the major media. A specific
example: Bill Mahr, a Jew who claims to be an atheist, was
given as entire HOUR on CNN. He habitually attacks religion,
particularly Islam. These rich Muslims have not protested.
[In fact they have not protested ANY attacks by the USA on
the Muslim world.]
Panic stricken as these rich Muslims are, they have
accepted unity with the LGBTq groups [the entire homosexual
movement]. Thus these rich mosque communities who pray and
fast are openly supporting the groups whose activities are
most explicitly condemned in the Qur'an.
Obama deported millions of undocumented "aliens." Trump
is doing the same but his deportations are highly publicized
by the Zionist media, again creating fear and anxiety among
upper/middle class Muslims.
Obama vowed to destroy the Islamic State and put together
an international coalition to bomb the Muslim fighters. This
is a daily bombing campaign, Trump says that he will do more
than Obama to destroy IS. Not much of a difference in
reality. US special forces and the British military are
already there. This does put up the threat level that IS
might attack America. The only two attacks were during
Trump is very close to Russia. Obama was very close to
Russia too. He cleverly let the Russian armies enter Syria
along with Hizbullah and Iran. At a crucial moment in the
Syrian struggle, Obama's released a huge sum of money to
Iran which was frozen from the time of the hostage taking in
Iran. As a result, open ended entry of Shia militias has
been continuing into Syria from Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan
and India under Iranian supervision [with full acceptance by
Russia and America.]
We see "Netanyahoo" sitting next to Trump. Many forget
that Obama gave Israel the biggest military aid package in
the history of the USA: $38 billion. To calm Palestinians
down, Obama told Israel not to build further in the already
established Jewish settlements. Trump too is telling Israel
to slow down.
Muslims should watch both sides. Criticize both sides. Don't
accept any lies. These crowds of Muslims have no Islamic
significance until they oppose:
