Plugs Humans Into Allah's Power house
African-American Males and "enslaving" the Females
Dr. Kaukab Siddique
gave the farewell juma' khutba for
Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen
in Baltimore on November 21. The following were his main points:
Text #1. "We indeed revealed this (Qur'an) in the Night of Power.
And what will explain to thee what the Night of Power is?
The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.
Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah's permission on every
errand. It is Peace, till the dawn emerges." [The Qur'an 97, 1-5]
Text #2. "And remember, We delivered you from the people of Pharoah:
they tormented you, slaughtered your sons and let your women live:
Therein was a tremendous trial from your Lord." [The Qur'an 2:49]
The Arabs were an isolated, backward and cruel people till the Qur'an was
revealed to Muhammad, pbuh,
and transformed them into the standard bearers of civilization through a
Women who were subjugated and inherited as property by men became the equals
and in many cases better than men owing to the "magic" of the Qur'an.
Slaves, rose up, carrying the Qur'an in their hearts and hands,
overthrew the empires of Persia and Rome which were based on slavery.
We Muslims, who have made religion into a convention and a business,
need to plug into the powerhouse of Allah by letting Allah's "electricity"
run into us through the sublime cadences of the Qur'an.
Hindu types of intraverted religion cannot oppose oppression but in fact
might be used by oppressors. The Prophet Muhammad, pbuh,
reached exaltation in the cave of Hira but was not satisfied with reaching
the zenith of spirituality. He had to leave the cave,
face persecution and even war, to give up all his worldly goods,
to create a just society.
We Muslims have a duty to do good in America. Like the Pharoah of Egypt,
the Pharoah of America who lives in the White House with his "operatives"
in the Pentagon, the FBI, Wall street, Madison Avenue and Hollywood,
has wrought havoc among the oppressed people.
Look at the facts of life in American communities:
crime, drugs, marriage becoming rarer every day, divorce rampant,
child molestation, wife battering.
We have a phenomenon rare in history:
mothers who don't care for their own children.
8. Homosexuality is being introduced as "normal" and even better than
9. The evil of trivialized sexuality is so commonplace that it is not even
news. Men make babies and leave.
10. AS IF PLANNED, African-American men are being "warehoused" in the ever
expanding prison system. MALES OF AFRICAN DESCENT cannot get jobs.
If they do get jobs, they are mistreated and denied advancement.
African-American women are getting jobs but mostly in the fringe
"entertainment and PR" areas of society.
This is what the Pharoah did.
He "killed" the men and kept the women for his entertainment.
11. Only Islam can break this cycle of evil, by creating a new reality,
new standards. We MUST NOT BECOME PART OF THIS SYSTEM.
study the Qur'an and let the Power of Allah's Word flow through you.
12. O Allah give unity to the Muslims of America based on the Qur'an and
the Example of Muhammad, pbuh. O Allah,
give victory to the mujahideen in
smite the Yahood and drive them out of Palestine as they drove our people
