 Dr Kaukab Siddique

Thinking of my Best Teacher
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

September 22 is the anniversary of Maulana Maudoodi.

The most important aspect of his character is that he kept changing for the better, never taking the attitude that he knows it all and there is no more to learn. His tafseer of the Qur'an, Tafheem ul Quran, reflects this process of development.

He broke new ground in teaching that Islam has within it the principles of Constitutionalism and the emergence of the Islamic State.

His explanation and analysis of Hadith and Sunnah is still the best as can be seen in his Sunnat ki Aini haisiat. He was always willing to learn from past scholars but never got stuck with one.

He did not hate. His tolerance of those who hated him or had serious differences with him is amazing. His daughter has written a beautiful book about him. Here is an instance of his tolerance: He and his family prayed in a neighborhood mosque whose imam hated him and would attack him even in his khutbas. In one khutba the imam went beyond all limits of hate. Maudoodi's family asked why he still prays in that mosque. Maudoodi's response: In all my studies I have not seen a text that you should not pray behind an imam who opposes Maudoodi.

His political teachings earned him the animosity of every Pakistani government but his organization, Jamate Islami, shaped Pakistani ideology without becoming violent. He was imprisoned repeatedly but always came out stronger. He was sentenced to death for questioning the legitimacy of the Qadiani ["Ahmadiyya"] movement but refused to ask for mercy.

Even today his movement, Jamate Islami, now led by a humble person, Sirajul Haq, is the only Pakistani party which has not been accused of corruption or for links with western powers. It has tens of thousands of supporters but cannot win elections owing to rejection of manipulative funding.

Divine Decree is always a Bounty message from Sis. Yasmin

'Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barkatuhu'.
The divine decree related to the Believer is
Always a Bounty, even if it is in the form of withholding something that is Desired...{!} and it is a Blessing,even if it appears to be a Trial ...{!}

and an Affliction that has befallen him is in Reality a Cure ...{!}
even though it appears to be a Disease {!}
unfortunately ... due to the ignorance of the worshiper, and his transgressions, he does not consider anything to be a gift or a blessing or a cure... unless he can enjoy it immediately...!
and it is in accordance with his nature.
If he were only given a little bit of understanding, then he would have counted being withheld from as a Blessing {!}
and the Sickness as a Mercy {!}
he would relish the trouble that befalls him more than he relishes his ease !he would enjoy poverty more than he enjoys richness !
~ he would be more Thankful when he is Blessed with little than when he is Blessed with a lot...{!}

'Subhanak Allaahuma wa Bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta Astaghfiruka wa Atubu Ilayk'.
Exalted and Glorified is my Lord (ALLAH) and all prayers and praises are due to HIM (alone) and I bear witness that there is no any other Lord or God except YOU (ALLAH) I seek your forgiveness and I repent unto YOU.. ('Aameen')
My 'Salaams' to all...

How did Shaikh Hasina slide into Power
by Dr. Firoz Kamal [Intro]


Shaikh Hasina - like her father Shaikh Mujibur Rahman, used and abused democratic rights to snatch people's rights. Her party was defeated several times fair elections. But fascists can't tolerate electoral defeats, hence hate fair elections. This is why they take electoral tools into their own hands. Therefore , after coming into power in 2008 by making a coalition with other fascists' organizations, the army and the deep state, Shaikh Hasina abolished the neutral caretaker formula introduced in 1991. Shaikh Hasina has a deep distaste for such a nonpartisan fair electoral system.

She rightly understood that a neutral caretaker government is a bar to her further victory. Under the caretaker government, she already lost two elections out of three. While she lost in 2001, she was reluctant to leave the Prime Minister's residence. so she made up her mind not to lose any further election in the future. Hence when she came to power in 2008, she wanted everything in her own hand. She wanted to use the state machineries to manipulate any election results. So she started to have her fixed electoral games. She started appointing only her own umpires. [p.361]

Hope emerges for Adnan Syed

[Jamaat al-Muslimeen urges Muslims in Masjid Rahma to realize how unjust is the American system.

Speak out for other victims of the system like Dr. Aafia and Imam Jamil

Stop being chamchas of the western powers.]

Syed was convicted in 2000 of killing his ex-girlfriend Prosecutors in Baltimore say they are re-examining the murder conviction of a Baltimore teenager in a case that spawned a hit true-crime podcast.

Adnan Syed was 17 when he was sentenced to life in prison for the death of his ex-girlfriend, Hae Min Lee, whose body was found buried in the woods in 1999.

Baltimore prosecutor Marilyn Mosby said an investigation now points to two other possible suspects.

The 2014 podcast Serial raised doubts about Syed's guilt.

On Wednesday, Mrs Mosby asked the courts to throw out Syed's February 2000 conviction and put him on trial again.

"After a nearly year-long investigation reviewing the facts of this case, Syed deserves a new trial where he is adequately represented and the latest evidence can be presented," the prosecutor said in a statement.

"As stewards of the court, we are obligated to uphold confidence in the integrity of convictions and do our part to correct when this standard has been comprised."

Syed was found guilty by a jury in 2000 of premeditated murder, kidnapping, robbery and false imprisonment

Both of the new potential suspects have been known to police since the 1999 murder, according to a court filing submitted by prosecutors on Wednesday.

One of the two - neither of whom has been named by officials - had previously threatened "to make her [Lee] disappear" or kill her, the documents say.

Prosecutors did not inform Adnan's defence team of the potentially exculpatory evidence, which poses a possible trial violation.

Lee's car was also found behind the home of one of the suspects, officials added. That information was not discovered until 2022, according to Mrs Mosby's office.

Prosecutors are not saying they believe Syed - who has now spent more than two decades in a Baltimore jail - is innocent.

"However, for all the reasons set forth below, the State no longer has confidence in the integrity of the conviction," they said in their court filing.

Syed's lawyer, Erica Suter, said in a news release: "Given the stunning lack of reliable evidence implicating Mr Syed, coupled with increasing evidence pointing to other suspects, this unjust conviction cannot stand.

"Mr Syed is grateful that this information has finally seen the light of day and looks forward to his day in court."

Former federal prosecutor Neama Rahmani, head of West Coast Trial Lawyers, said there is "almost no chance" Syed will face another trial considering how long he has been in prison, and the growing possibility he is innocent.

Serial Productions, which produced the podcast, tweeted "this is big news," and noted that it is the first time that prosecutors have said they do not have confidence in his conviction.

In 2019, the state's highest appeals court turned down his bid for a new trial.

The podcast Serial suggested the evidence it had unearthed from alibi witness Asia McClain could have corroborated Syed's account that he was in the library when his ex-girlfriend was killed.

He has consistently denied playing any role in Lee's death

From Dr. T.
Omar al-Mukhtar's Shahada

On September 16, 1931, the leader of the Libyan resistance was executed by the Italian occupation army.

Known as the Lion of the Desert, Omar spent the last 20 years of his life fighting against the Italian occupation of his country, After many attempts, the Italian Armed Forces managed to capture him.

Later, he was hanged before his followers at the age of 73 years.

Mukhtar's remarkable life was depicted in the 1980 film "Lion of the Desert." starring Anthony Quinn.

{New Trend comment::
As he was being hanged, he was reading his personal copy of the Qur'an as if nothing was happening, calm and unrufflled.]


Devastating Expose of the Anne Frank Diary
This is what we are usually told and it became a global best seller.

No single person better represents the face of the Holocaust than Anne Frank. As a 13-year-old Jewish girl living in wartime Amsterdam, she hid out with seven other Jews for over two years. During this time, she kept a diary of her thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Eventually, the Frank family was discovered and deported; Anne later died of typhus in Bergen-Belsen at the age of 15. But her diary lives on. Today, The Diary of Anne Frank is an icon of Jewish suffering amidst the vast sea of Holocaust literature, and Anne herself has become a high priestess in the pantheon of Holocaust martyrs.

Anne's diary is compulsory reading for many school students around the world. Therefore, its influence on the shaping of young minds cannot be underestimated. While millions of people know of Anne's story, very few know of the many problems with it.

Here is the critique

As it turns out, Anne's tale is rife with absurdities, logical problems, inconsistencies, and incoherent claims. Here, Japanese researcher Ikuo Suzuki deconstructs Anne's famous dairy, exposing the many issues lying just below the surface. In the process, he unmasks the truth: that the notorious diary was likely written by a middle-aged Jewish man who worked in conjunction with Anne's father, Otto, to foist upon the public a deceptive and highly misleading story of a young teenage girl who perished in a German camp.

Here, for the first time, Suzuki presents a thorough, detailed, and highly readable critique of the global bestseller that is Anne Frank's Diary. Far and away the best critical analysis of the famous diary, this book fills a badly needed gap in contemporary revisionist literature.

 Unmasking Anne Frank

Our view of Anne Frank - and of all Jews who suffered in the Holocaust - will never be the same.
