Hadith of the Week
Narrated by Samura bin Jundab, r.a.:
The Prophet said, "This night I dreamt that two men came and
took me to a Holy land whence we proceeded on till we
reached a river of blood, where a man was standing, and on
its bank was standing another man with stones in his hands.
The man in the middle of the river tried to come out, but
the other threw a stone in his mouth and forced him to go
back to his original place. So, whenever he tried to come
out, the other man would throw a stone in his mouth and
force him to go back to his former place. I asked, 'Who is
this?' I was told, 'The person in the river was a

Six-Page Jamaat Document given to 100 Muslims.
On June 7, a large crowd gathered for Juma salat at masjid
Ibrahim in Newark. They were mostly from Bangladesh, various
Arab countries and north African countries,
Their car bumper stickers gave messages like : "Jesus, pbuh,
was a Muslim," "Read Qur'an," and "Make Peace."
Later we were told by a Bangladeshi sister that the imam is
from an Arab country, has been there for 10 years and is
very popular, When he began, he did not know English and
needed an interpreter. Now he is quite fluent in English but
with an accent.
The following is an outline of the 6 page Jamaat
al-Muslimeen document which was given to 100 people. [It's
good to remember that though most people want our

call Homeland security on us and last month, a Bangla old

The Immobility of the Muslim World. Major Disaster Caused by
the Sufi sect.
by Dr. Kaukab Siddique
Why is the Muslim world unable to transform itself? The
issue of sects.
The mosques are packed with worshippers even in seemingly
secular America. Muslims are quite well to do. Freedom of
religion in America allows masjids and Muslims to
Imams give extensive sermons. Many masjids are collecting
funds. Money is so much available that Muslims go out of
their way to feed non-Muslims. The masjids cost at least one
to two million dollars each and more. The parking lots are
full of late model cars.
However when it comes to issues facing the Muslim world, the
Muslims have little or nothing to say. A steady decline is
going on. They dare not speak against their mortal enemy,
Israel. Muslims have found a way of criticizing Israel, by
objecting to Jewish settlements which have been declared
illegal even by the force hostile to Islam: the United
When it comes to invasion, bombing and occupation of Muslim
countries by the US, Russia and their allies, Muslims have
little or nothing to say. Corruption and immorality is rife
in the Muslim world. Last year the occupiers of the holy
cities, Makka and Madinah, executed 47 Islamic scholars,
including the top scholars of the Sunnis and the Shias. Even
the ban on fasting in Chinese Turkistan and the emergence of
concentration camps elicited little or no response from
Yet conversations with Muslims give the impression that they
are deeply religious. They seldom oppose anything which is
Islamic. Hijab is common. Why has this serious situation
emerged that Muslims can do nothing though they lack nothing
in resources and they love Islam?
Part 2. Sects and the ongoing immobility of the Muslim
The majority of the world's Muslims support Sufism either
directly or indirectly through their influence. A smaller
but growing number consider themselves salafiyya. A still
smaller number are Shia or Shia-an-Ali, r.a.
The Sufis are of great variety as a natural result of their
existence throughout the Muslim world. They focus on Tazkia
[self purification], prayers [more importantly du'a,
supplication] and Zikr [dikr]. They cherish graves of
virtuous people and have great love for the prophet, pbuh,
which they express through durood and salam. The more
organized among them have a spiritual leader or Shaikh. Many
or most of the Sufis pray to Allah to be compassionate and
caring for their near-and-dear dead ones.
The Salafiyya are almost the direct opposite of the sufis.
For them dress, forms and stances of prayer are important as
are beards and the seclusion of women. They take many verses
of the Qur'an and hadith literally and ignore their
significance and metaphoric meaning. They are strong on
punishments and short on forgiveness.
As for the Shia, they have focused on the personalities of
Ali, Fatima, Hasan and Hussain, may Allah bless them all,
and their progeny, and they await the coming of the hidden
My main focus here will be on the Sufis, as their influences
are the greatest on the Muslim ummah and they also link up
with Shias at some points.]
Notice that all three have picked up bits and pieces of
Islam and thus caused total fragmentation in the Muslim
Notice that neither the Qur'an nor the Prophet, pbuh, and
his sahaba, r.a., mention Sufi, salafiyya and Shia. Thus all
three are based on opinions of scholars and leaders
[sometimes kings and tyrants] and not from the primary
sources of Islam.
Sufism attracts people by focusing on beautiful phrases
carefully picked from the Qur'an, such as "tazkiya,"
"zikr.," "qalbe Saleem" and "qayam al layl" [late night
Sufis have undermined the Islamic message by totally
ignoring the Prophet's, pbuh, mission in Makka and then his
jihad activity in Madinah.
The Prophet, pbuh, focused on attacking and condemning the
false gods whom the Quraish worshipped. There were 365 idols
in the ka'aba. The Quraish would not tolerate the Prophet's,
pbuh, condemnation of the entire Makkan idolatry system. As
a result he was subjected to constant harassment by the
oppressors. They called him a magician, a poet, a sorcerer
and tried their utmost not to let his recitation of the
Qur'an be heard.
Hence the life of the Prophet, pbuh, in Makka was a constant
struggle. There was no place for tazkiyya and Zikr. In fact
one who thinks the prophet, pbuh. needed tazkiyya is not a
Muslim and knows nothing about the prophet, pbuh.
The entire community supporting the prophet, pbuh, was
imprisoned and almost starved. His companions were
persecuted and tortured. Think of Bilal, r.a., on the desert
sand with the slave master's rock on his chest. Think of
Sumayyah, r.a., killed by the slave master. These great
Muslims were not carrying on some fancy tazkiyya. They knew
only that Allah is One and Muhammad, pbuh, is His messenger
AND the gods of the power structure were false.
It is this LA [NO] aspect of Islam, so central and
essential, which the Sufis ignore. Today the Sufis are the
mainstay of the dictators and tyrants who are oppressing
Muslims and are being used against the mujahideen. [The
Sufis are publicized as "moderates" by the western powers
and their allies.]
The final offer of the oppressors, the kuffar, to the
Prophet, pbuh, is most important. They not only offered to
make him their leader but also that he should feel free to
worship Allah, if only he were to STOP attacking their gods.
The prophet, pbuh, refused flat out though the offer was
brought by his loving uncle Abu Talib.

Israeli & Hindu brutalities Continued.
by Qaiser Sharif.
LAHORE, June 07; Acting Ameer of the Jamaat e Islami,
Pakistan, Liaqat Baloch, has deplored the attitude of the
federal government resulting in celebration of Eidul Fitr on
two different days in the country. He was talking to the
media after offering Eidul Fitr at Mansoora mosque.
The JI acting chief said that the federal government had
handled the religious issue of Eid in a non serious manner
and instead of making serious efforts for celebration of
Eidul Fitr on the same day all over the country, the
government had played a negative role due to which the two
Eids were celebrated .
Liaqat Baloch also slated the sky high prices of the food
items and the necessities of life during the month of
Ramazan and on Eid. He said the JI would stage an Awami
march against price hike, unemployment and IMF slavery in
the city on June 16.
Meanwhile, a Christian delegation led by Father Francis
Nadeem called on the JI acting chief and greeted him on the
occasion of Eid. Talking to the delegation, Liaqat Baloch
said that tolerance and respect for different views was a
pre-requisite for survival of humanity and peaceful co
The JI acting chief deplored that even during the month of
Ramazan and on Eid day, the brutalities of the Zionists and
the Hindus continued in Palestine and Held Kashmir. He said
that in fact, the colonial powers were devoid of human
feelings and values.

News Within the U.S.
Harlem NY - It is June and it is Gay Pride month! The
support for the Gay lifestyle has become more and more
bolder year after year.
by Sis. Aisha, New York [Jamaat al-Muslimeen.]
I have been seeing shoppers walking in the streets
displaying the rainbow flag on their shopping bags. Many
stores are showing their support but, the biggest supporter
seems to be the churches. Throughout Manhattan, except
Harlem (?), there are a growing number of churches
displaying the Gay rainbow flag. This has increased from
last year. They appear to be gaining a lot of support but it
is not without its detractors.
THE GAY AGENDA & CHILDREN
Cartoons have been promoting homosexuality to children.
Disney is the biggest culprit, which should not be
surprising since Disney World began promoting Gay Pride
events under former CEO Michael Eisner's tenure. An episode
of Disney XD's Star vs The Forces of Evil had a scene where
same sex characters kissed. Disney Channel's Andi Mack had a
13 year old character reveal his romantic feelings toward
A reboot of the Inspector Gadget cartoon can be seen on the
Universal Studios channel. A scene in season 4 of Inspector
Gadget had an enamored male, Dr. Mathperson, affectionately
referring to one of the main male characters (Talon) as,
"Mr. Handsomeface McPerfecthair." When Talon's evil nature
becomes apparent to Dr. Mathperson he falls to his knees
proclaiming that, "Mr. Handsomeface was my everything."
There had been a call to boycott Disney Channel(s), by
concerned mothers, because of the promo-homo agenda but,
Disney is not the only vehicle for the Gay Agenda.
MAINSTREAMING HOMOSEXUALITY AMONG MEN
Bro-mance, man-crush, etc....These are terms that would
never enter the vocabulary of a conscious straight male.
However, it has become apart of the American vernacular.
How? Well, MTV and VH1, which are two of many stations owned
by kafir conglomerate Viacom, are responsible for pushing
the Gay agenda into the mainstream through their reality
shows and objectionable music videos. Public urinals and
real wrestling are what Ancient Greek homosexual society
They try to make these terms seem innocent while also
stating that it is a natural, benign form of intimacy that
goes beyond that or 'normal" male bonding. What??? These
terms are designed to confuse young teenage boys and girls.
Teenagers already experience feelings that make them feel
awkward. Unfortunately, there have been efforts by Gay
Pied-Pipers to convince teenagers that the root of these
feelings are sexual when they are not. A very Freudian
GAY AGENDA IN THE WORKPLACE
There is no other workplace where lesbianism has been
allowed to thrive than in the Women's National Basketball
Association (WNBA). Recently, the Phoenix Mercury
organization hired Penny Taylor as an assistant coach where
her wife, Diana Taurasi, is also a player! This type of
association would not be allowed in other work environments.
The moment it is discovered that a relative or spouse is
working in the same department anywhere they are split up. A
player who is being coached by his/her wife is bound to
cause conflict with other players questioning their playing
Female players entering into unholy matrimony is broadcast
while straight marriages receive very little coverage. The
Chicago Sky have two wives playing with each other.
Lesbianism has been allowed to overrun the WNBA. In a 2016
San Diego Union Tribune interview, former WNBA star Candice
Wiggins stated that the league was 98% lesbian. She also
later stated that the reason why she left the league was
that she was bullied for being straight.
The same way the powers-that-be choose the bootlickers
brigade to dismiss the concerns an outspoken
African-American has about racism, in this instance they
chose married straight-allies to dismiss Candice Wiggins'
claims. However, the only thing they criticized her for was
the exaggeration of the number of lesbians in the WNBA. The
power of lesbianism in the WNBA has forced other straight
players, who may have been victims of sexual harassment, to
remain silent. No one came out to support Wiggins at all
but, I cannot believe she was the only one experiencing this
Another pervasive, inaccurate, and unfair notion lesbians
want people to believe is that women who play sports, such
as basketball, soccer, softball, etc. are lesbian. This is
the stigma that has always been associated with female
athletes. Many well-meaning parents prevent their daughters
from participating in ANY athletic endeavor believing that
these environments are breeding grounds for lesbianism.
There may be some truth to that, unfortunately. It does not
help that the WNBA boldly celebrates Gay Pride throughout
its season. Technically, the act of playing a sport has
nothing to do with one's romantic inclinations.
HEARING AND OBEYING ALLAH'S MESSAGE IS THE ONLY AMMO
Hearing and obeying Allah's message in the Qur'an and
following the example of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in the
Authentic Hadith are the keys to overcoming all obstacles.
Keep in mind: "I created the Jinn and humankind only that
they might worship me (Holy Qur'an 51:56)." and "....Surely,
the strategy of the Shaitan is weak (Holy Qur'an 4:76)."
This means that we practicing Muslims must learn how to
build our schedules around worshiping Allah and not work to
fit worshiping Allah into our schedules. I know it is very
difficult. It is important that Muslim children understand
Allah's criteria for us to gain His Favor. Children should
be read stories from the Qur'an and how those lessons apply
to their current life experiences. They will become less
susceptible to the weak arguments of these Gay Pied-Pipers,
who are constantly trying to wrangle children's minds from
their parents' grip. Teaching Islam is especially important
if your children are attending public schools!
Shaitan knows that children are our future. But, if all
Muslim parents are going to do is ritualize Salat and the
wearing of the hijab then, our children will get swept up in
this Gay Agenda. If you are not mindful of this, one day,
your children will be telling you how the message of the
Qur'an is now outdated and that procreation was necessary
back then but, now it isn't because the world is
"overpopulated." So, the Gay lifestyle is no longer a sin,
in these more modern times.
As one Imam put it, if you don't want your child to have
classmates with two mommies or two daddies then send them to
an Islamic school because public and other kuffar school
systems definitely have that! These Gay Pied-Pipers know
that they must exert influence over prepubescent children
and the avenues to spread their agenda is through the
schools, sleep away camps, sports programs, etc.
If you have Netflix and Hulu, you can create lists of shows
and movies to watch for yourself and your children. Cable
companies allow you to block Gay channels, such as Logo, as
well as MTV, VH1, and Disney. However, this is not a
fool-proof method to protect our children from immoral
influences. The best preemptive strike is teaching the
message of the Qur'an and the Authentic Hadith. This is the
ONLY way to arm our children against Shaitan's weak schemes.
Allah's logic must be used not our own.

Solitary Confinement is Torture says Unusual Woman
Alexandria does not want Opponent to be mistreated.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, pursuing the progressive
agenda of ending solitary confinement in prisons, chose an
unlikely symbol for the cause Wednesday: President Trump's
former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.
Manafort, now serving a federal prison sentence in
Pennsylvania for various financial crimes, is scheduled to
be transferred to New York City's notorious jail complex on
Rikers Island to await trial on state charges related to his
past financial dealings. The New York Times reported Tuesday
that he would likely be segregated from the general jail
population and held in isolation.
Reacting to the news on Twitter Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez,
whose district includes the island in the East River, where
the complex of jails is located, called solitary confinement
"torture" and said Manafort "should be released, along with
all people being held in solitary."
"A prison sentence is not a license for gov torture and
human rights violations," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. "That's
what solitary confinement is."
Invitation to Think
Pakistan's horrible Secret War against its own people.
[Excerpted from the Guardian.] [Via Br. Shaikh
In Balochistan, mutilated corpses bearing the signs of
torture keep turning up, among them lawyers, students and
farm workers. Why is no one investigating and what have they
got to do with the bloody battle for Pakistan's largest
The bodies surface quietly, like corks bobbing up in the
dark. They come in twos and threes, a few times a week,
dumped on desolate mountains or empty city roads, bearing
the scars of great cruelty. Arms and legs are snapped; faces
are bruised and swollen. Flesh is sliced with knives or
punctured with drills; genitals are singed with electric
prods. In some cases the bodies are unrecognisable,
sprinkled with lime or chewed by wild animals. All have a
gunshot wound in the head.
This gruesome parade of corpses has been surfacing in
Balochistan, Pakistan's largest province, since last July.
Several human rights groups, including Amnesty
International, have accounted for more than 100 bodies -
lawyers, students, taxi drivers, farm workers. Most have
been tortured. The last three were discovered on Sunday.
If you have not heard of this epic killing spree, though,
don't worry: neither have most Pakistanis. Newspaper reports
from Balochistan are buried quietly on the inside pages,
cloaked in euphemisms or, quite often, not published at
The forces of law and order also seem to be curiously
indifferent to the plight of the dead men. Not a single
person has been arrested or prosecuted; in fact, police
investigators openly admit they are not even looking for
anyone. The stunning lack of interest in Pakistan's greatest
murder mystery in decades becomes more understandable,
however, when it emerges that the prime suspect is not some
shady gang of sadistic serial killers, but the country's
powerful military and its unaccountable intelligence
