We support the Black community but they cannot succeed without Islam.
By Kaukab Siddique
On September 4, Br. Kaukab Siddique gave the Juma khutba at
masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in Baltimore. The masjid was
crowded because people have learned how to take precautions
against Covid 19.
After juma, Br. Kaukab held a marriage counseling
The area of the masjid is very congested and becomes worse
with road repairs.
Here is an outline of the khutba.
O people: We created you from a male and a female, and made
you races and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that
ye may despise each other). Surely, the best among you with
Allah is the best in conduct. Allah is all-knowing,
all-wise. Qur'an 49:13
Protesting against wrong doing and oppression is integral
The American power structure has been oppressing the
entire Muslim world:
Sometimes through military occupation and bombing.
Sometimes through Israel and its horrific occupation of
Sometimes by planting dictators and kings who brutalize
suppress the Muslim ummah as in Egypt and Jordan.
Very recently we see UAE's treachery via Israel.
What you do to others can come back to bite you. Notice
the countrywide peaceful uprising of the Black community.
This is indeed a glorious response to police brutality
and grave injustice.
However, the Black community, as a natural ally of the
Muslim ummah, which is gradually supporting Muslim concerns,
can gain much by understanding and learning Islam.
The belief in the Hereafter and responsibility before
Allah can lead to:
Organization and unity based on compassion and caring for
all oppressed people.
Leadership which can be trusted and which is not
commected to the power structure.
Within the Muslim.community we should try to marry on the
basis of character and morality.
We Muslims love all the Messengers of Allah, all the way
from Noah, to Abraham, to Moses, to Jesus, to Muhammad,
peace and blessings be on them all.

News Within the U.S.
Now, Gays are Targeting Muslims...in Public Schools!
by Sis. Aisha, Jamaat al-Muslimeen, New York
I was given this information by a brother at Masjid Malcolm
Shabazz after Jummah. In the video, she said she spoke to
Imam Siddiqui and an Imam Mustafa. I was going to make this
an article below but, I think it best tat Muslims just watch
it for themselves.
It is a YouTube video of an interview with a public school
teacher, Brenda Lebsack, on The Deen Show and she reveals a
new effort to target Muslim children ad get them to accept
the Gay lifestyle. According to The Deen Show host, Eddie
Redzovic, Brenda Lebsack has over 25 years of teaching
experience with a background in psychology. It is on the One
Islam Productions YouTube channel.
This plan was developed four years ago in California. New
York and California are test states! If they are planning to
implement ANY measures for the entire country to follow they
start with these states first to be the model for the rest
of America to follow, The website that was recommended to
teachers and the board of education was Advocates for Youth
site, which specialise in sexual equality among young
people. Their site motto is Young, Powerful. Taking Over.
It is an hour long interview. Ms. Lebsack said she is not
Muslim but, is a person of faith, who was disturbed by the
intent to target Muslim children at this site by
misinterpreting the Qur'an. She took her findings to the
local mosque in Orange County, California.

Blasphemous cartoons of the Prophet, pbuh, again in France.
By Kaukab Siddique.
France has published cartoons of the Prophet, pbuh, again as
the trial of accessories to the attacks begins.
In 2005, French cartoonists published the cartoons and were
attacked and killed by armed and outraged Muslims.
Waves of anger spread through the Muslim world, particularly
in Africa where France is seen as an imperialist power.
All of France rallied, with Israeli backing, to support the cartoonists.
It became a war against Islam in the name of freedom of expression.
Fighters from the Islamic State attacked targets across
France and were in turn hunted down by powerful French forces.
The war continued later when Islamic State itself was
attacked by united western powers with the help of Iran.
Entire Islamic cities like Mosul and Raqqa were pulverised.
The original attackers were killed except an Islamic woman
named Hayat who has disappeared.
France is now putting on trial all those who worked
indirectly with the Islamic State to make the attacks possible.
It is a serious blunder to publish the cartoons again. Even
mild al-Azhar in Egypt is protesting.
Freedom of expression does not mean freedom to attack Islam
but France seems to think so.
Fortunately America did not allow the blasphemous cartoons
to be published in America.

Hadith of the Week
Abu Huraira, r.a.:
The Prophet said,
"Allah said, 'I will be an opponent to three types of people
on the Day of Resurrection:
One who makes a covenant in My Name, but proves treacherous;
One who sells a free person and eats his price; and
One who employs a laborer and takes full work from him
but does not pay him for his labour.' "

From Occupied Palestine to Turtle Island: Tending the Fires of Resistance
by Benay Blend
"California fires are like the ongoing attacks on Gaza,"
writes Palestinian author Ibtisam Barakat. "So one is
natural and the other unnatural...Both are overwhelming and
make one stop to wonder how people on Earth need to have a
conversation about protecting lives and living for everyone."
Here in New Mexico, we are also seeing smoke from fires just
north of Santa Fe. Barakat ties all of these disasters
together by calling for a universal dialogue that would
highlight the need to heal all manner of wrongs done to
humanity and the Earth.
What unites these fires, too, from Gaza to the American
Southwest, is the colonization and consequent mismanagement
of Indigenous land. In America for centuries, and in
Occupied Palestine since 1948, colonizers have wiped out the
Indigenous presence by genocide and land appropriation. In
the process, they have also refused to honor traditional
practices that managed fire in a responsible way.
In Colonization, Fire Suppression, and Indigenous Resurgence
in the Face of Climate Change, Kari Marie Norgaard
(non-Native professor of sociology and environmental studies
at University of Oregon) relates that the "130-year legacy
of fire suppression in the U.S. is a process that continues
to dispossess Native peoples of their lands."
POST COVID 19: NIGERIANS TO FACE ARTIFICIAL HARDSHIPS
By Abdulkabir Oyemomi
Nigerians have been welcomed to a new form of hardship
through the insensitive decision of the federal government
to increase the price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS),
popularly referred to as petrol at the time that economy of
virtually all the private households in Nigeria is seriously
adversely affected, courtesy of lockdown that many adjudge
unnecessary. There is another decision to increase the
charge for power supply amidst untoward epilepsy in its supply.
Something is clear: it is either the administration of
Muhammadu Buhari is clueless about the best way to fix the
battered economy to ensure wellbeing of the vast majority of
Nigerians or many team players under the president are more
corrupt and callous than even the past administration of
People's Democratic Party (PDP) , which appears to be the
worst government under the sun.
No argument as to the fact that successive PDP governments
looted the treasury of this nation to the marrow, but this
fact was the reason the electorates gave Buhari their
mandates when he promised he understood where the shoes
pinch; he made us feel he was not only truthful and sincere
about delivering us from the shackles of suffering and
smiling, but also fortified with knowledge of roadmap to the
way out of our mess. It is unfortunate that people
experience more hardship now.
Disappointingly, many dogs have become toothless in the face
of calamitous situation. Nigerian Labour Congress ( NLC)
used to be a strong voice against unpopular decision of the
government, but the leadership could not take a step because
they dine and wine with power that be. Ditto for all other
This government has only one year to turn things around or
be remembered as the worst administration ever.
