November 23: New Trend's representative in North Carolina, famous human rights activist, Imam Badi Ali was visited by two FBI agents, one from the headquarters in D.C. and the other local in Greensboro. They were probably trying to intimidate the learned brother but Br. Badi told them exactly what the Muslim ummah thinks. It appears that the FBI is concerned that Greensboro, North Carolina has become a rallying point for Muslim opposition to the repressive policies of the U.S. administration.

The points Br. Badi made and which were written down by the FBI agents are all in the public domain and are available on New Trend's web site:
1. The Muslim ummah is united in opposition to the projected assault on Iraq.
2. The attacks by Palestinian martyrs on Israel are legitimate acts of resistance against an occupying entity. No Muslim needs to apologize for the martyrdom operations.
3. The Muslims who went and had iftar in the White House with President Bush are not representatives of the Muslim masses. They are the exact opposite of the aspirations of the Muslim ummah. No Muslim as a true follower of Qur'an and Sunnah will go and have food with the man who has been bombing the Muslims of Afghanistan and Iraq and funding and arming Israel.
4. The Muslims of America are innocent of having done anything against America but are being persecuted and oppressed according to the Zionist agenda. Muslim charities have been closed down while Jewish Americans are pumping funds into Israel to support aggression and settlements.
[The FBI did not arrest Imam Badi Ali but they seem to be preparing a case against him with the coming attack on Iraq.]

Originally from Iraq, Shaikh Abdus Sattar al-Dahir, from New Orleans, gave a stirring khutba at masjid Noor in Baltimore, Maryland which left the packed juma' audience, tears. The Shaikh quoted extensively from the Qur'an to bring out:
1. The importance of the family in Islam and the need for family cohesion where the children learn that obedience to parents is second only to obedience to Allah (in all good things).
2. The Qur'an gives extreme importance to the rights of orphans. The Shaikh keyed his preaching to these verses:
"Let those (disposing of an estate) have the same fear in their minds as they would have for their own if they had left a helpless family behind: Let them fear Allah and speak appropriate words. Those who unjustly eat up the property of orphans, eat up a Fire into their own bodies: they will soon be enduring a blazing Fire!" (4:9-10)
3. According to authentic Hadith, those who are kind and generous to orphans will be close to the Prophet (pbuh) himself in Paradise.
From Hadith, Shaikh Abdus Sattar brought the beautiful story of Hasan and Husain (Allah be pleased with them) when they were children and the Prophet (pbuh) stopped in the middle of his khutba to go pick them up. He called them the flowers of paradise. Children and grandchildren are the great blessings of life and test us to our utmost.
4. The orphans of the ummah are crying out for help: Look at the suffering of our families in Kashmir, Palestine, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Iraq and various parts of Africa. Look at how millions of orphans are left to fend for themselves or left to the ravages of agencies with anti-Islam agendas.

Br. Kaukab's Khutba on Idols of our time: Understanding Nigeria and the Marketing of the World:

Br. Kaukab Siddique has given khutbas during Ramadan as follows:
1. Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore. (Students mostly from Arab countries and Malaysia.)
November 8, 2002.
2. Lincoln University, Pennsylvania. (Students, African-American and African.) November 15.
3. Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen, Baltimore. (African-American and African). November 22.
Here are a few points from his Nov. 22 khutba:
Texts for the khutba:
"Remember how the rejectors plotted against you, to keep you in servitude, or slay you, or get you out (of your home). They plot and plan and Allah too plans, but the best of planners is Allah." (The Qur'an 8:30)
"Live in the world as if you are a stranger or one traveling through." (Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, Sahih of Bukhari, narrated by Ibn ‘Umar, r.a.)

i. Two global forces are at work in the world: the market economy linked to international jewry and Islam which preaches the ONENESS of the Ummah from Morocco to the Philippines, from Chechnya to Nigeria.
ii. The marketing forces are trying to shred the fabric of decency and modesty around the world. These forces cannot SELL their good in Muslim countries as long as Islamic modesty and family system is intact.
iii. The market economy cannot succeed without LIQUOR, GAMBLING, DRUGS, FORNICATION, ADULTERY and degradation of womanhood.
iv. In Indonesia, the marketers distributed a million condoms and set up night clubs. In Pakistan, they distribute blue movies and sell playboy magazine. In Egypt and other countries tourism is connected to night clubs.
v. The DEGRADATION OF WOMEN has reached such levels in America and Europe that women in "beauty shows" are PROUD to take off their clothes in public. They have been so enslaved that they do not realize that men are making them into objects.
vi. Many Muslims do not understand the meaning of the kalima which denies all gods other than Allah. These Muslims think false gods were the idols of Arabia and we do not worship idols.
vii. The idols of our time are: The Pentagon, Wall Street, Hollywood and Madison Avenue. The PENTAGON flaunts its genitalia (B-52 and B-1 bombers, F-16s, cruise missiles) on TV as it prepares to rape Iraq after having raped Afghanistan.
WALL STREET controls the finances of the whole world. The representatives of capitalism sit around playing with numbers, becoming richer every day, while the producers working in the fields get little or nothing.
HOLLYWOOD is undermining the values of the world, trying to present ADULTERY and FORNICATION as honorable and great activities which ridiculing modesty and poverty. It creates a world of fantasy which leaves audiences cut off from the "ground level" facts.

THE MUSLIM UPRISING IN NIGERIA is a defeat for these people who claim that punishment for adultery is barbaric. These people legitimize HOMOSEXUALITY, which, according to the New York Times is as good as marriage between man and woman, if not better.
The Nigerian struggle was the test where the "naked-women-are-better" syndrome was at the point of victory but was defeated by the martyrs of Nigeria.

MADISON AVENUE is the best in marketing for it teaches women to shave and show their legs, if necessary every day. These marketers are disgusted with Islamic preachers in Pakistan who teach Purdah, burqa, dopatta. Why don't Pakistani women become just like the women in Hollywood?

In our communities in America, look at the sons of Shaitan opening all these liquor stores, permitting the spread of drugs, turning women into prostitutes and "one- night stands." Look at how helpless the women in "Israel" are. There are 250 brothels in Tel Aviv but the cries of the women cannot be heard because the zionists control the media.

In this Ramadan, let us resolve to stand with the oppressed and against the oppressors. O Allah, give victory to the mujahideen in Palestine, destroy the power of the Jews, O Allah, give victory to the mujahideen in Kashmir, Chechnya, Afghanistan and Iraq. Ameen, Ameen, Ameen.
PAKISTAN: The courts have handed two setbacks to military chief Pervez Musharraf: Dr. Amir, who had been kidnaped by the FBI has been returned to his family under court order. He was taken back from the Americans after countrywide demonstrations condemned the kidnaping. He was accused of treating Osama bin Laden, who is the hero of the Pakistani masses, as well as numerous people injured in U.S. bombing. [Thus the U.S. violating international law by designating a person as a terrorist because he treated the wounded in war time!]

Secondly, under court order, Hafiz Saeed, leader of the jihad movement, Ad-Da'wa, founder of Lashkare Taiba, has been freed following 6 months of imprisonment during which Mushareff's government declared it did not know WHERE he was (!). There were fears that he might have been handed over to the Americans. It appears that Musharref detained him during the months in which India carried out its "election" program in Kashmir.Hafiz Saeed has been instrumental in thwarting Indian moves in Kashmir. Hence he was "detained." The collusion between Vajpayee and Musharref under U.S. supervision targets the Jihad movement in Kashmir.

The courts have declared both arrests illegal and the charges against Dr. Amir and Hafiz Saeed lacking evidence.
SHAME ON MUSHARREF: Nov. 22, CNN showed a clip of armored Pakistani troops blowing up homes of Pakistanis who gave refuge to Chechen mujahideen. [CNN is so happy with Musharref!] Is Musharref a Jew? Does Islam permit such attacks on hosts of Muslim refugees. The next day, the Pashtun tribes forced the dastardly Pakistani troops to retreat.
from Ms. Carolyn in Florida
Why don't you write Oprah and give her the information you mention. Believe me, she is controlled by the Zionists. One time I was watching her show and she had this j guy on that went on and on about why he would never marry a jewish woman. Believe it or not, practically the next day, he was on again refuting everything he said. The js had gotten to him.

Also, I used to get her magazine, but stopped when I saw she was interviewing too many js and making them look like heroes.

Have you read anything yet about the Palestinian in Florida that is out on a 10 million dollar bail? He didn't kill anyone, or do anything wrong, other than hire some illegal aliens from Pakistan. It's big news here, but all allegations. The Enron and WorldCom people aren't getting treated as badly as this man, nor the attention. They should all be strung up for ruining so many peoples lives-retirements, etc. Unfortunately, people like that are above the law.

The Rabbi in New Jersey (I think that is the right state), got off with life in prison for killing his wife. Do you remember that case?
Israeli army vandalizes, desecrates mosque in Jenin

Occupied Jerusalem: 24 November, 2002 (IAP News)

Israeli occupation soldiers on Sunday blew up the main entrance of a mosque in Jenin before entering and desecrating the holy place, Palestinian sources reported.

The sources said soldiers entered the mosque without taking their boots off and reportedly tore up religious texts.

The Zionists then arrested the Imam and Muezzin (caller of prayer) of the Mosque before leaving the premises.

On Friday, Israeli soldiers murdered the head of the UN mission in Jenin.

The Israeli occupation army claimed the killing was carried out by mistake but eyewitnesses and Cook’s colleagues dismissed the Israeli claims as “pure lies.”
Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP)
ISLAMIC PROTESTS IN NIGERIA SPREAD TO LAGOS on November 24 following news that MILITARY CURFEWS were stopping Muslims from going to mosques during the blessed month of Ramadan. The Nigerian government is now in full retreat. The number of those killed has risen to 175.
No organization or group is singly to be credited for the Nigerian uprising. The Islamic masses took it on themselves to defend the HONOR OF THE PROPHET (pbuh) by attacking beauty pageant organizers and supporters as well as opponents of Sharia laws. No government today stands for Islam (except perhaps Saddam, the only ruler whose guns are aimed at the aggressors rather than at his own people), but the ISLAMIC MASSES ARE RISING UP against cultural imperialism. [Allahu Akbar wa lillahil hamd.]
