National Islamic Shoora of Jamaat al-Muslimeen : April 23,
2011, Greensboro, NC
Theme: Muslim World is Rising Up!
Host : Imam Badi Ali
Secretary General: Sis. Ashira Na'im
Ameer: Dr. Kaukab Siddique
Delegates came from:
Youths from Hispanic, Black & "White" races came to see how
a peaceful Islamic movement work.
The 8-hour long meeting was chaired by Br. Kaukab
Resolutions passed by the National Shoora of Jamaat
Hail the peaceful uprisings of the Muslims of Tunisia,
Egypt, Libya, Bahrain and Syria as well as the growing
protests in Jordan, Algeria and Morocco. The blood of the
Muslim ummah is on the hands of the tyrants of these
countries. They have suppressed Islam, violated human rights
and looted the wealth of their nations.
Condemn US and European military intervention in
Libya. The US began with a salvo of 100 missiles which were
bound to cause uncounted civilian casualties. The western
powers' intervention is opportunistic, aimed at Africa's
wealth and the re-colonization of Africa. It could also be
aimed at breaking Libya into two. Attempts are underway to
create a rift between other Africans and Libyans.
Urge the Muslim masses to beware of elite secularist
groups which are aligned to the West, want to take over the
leadership in each country and would not hesitate to betray
the Islamic ideals of the people.
Call on the Egyptian people to play their historic
role to lead the Muslim world, especially in the efforts to
break the Israeli cordon on Gaza and Israeli aggression in
Call for Shi'a-Sunni dialogue. If Muslims and non-Muslims
can talk, why is there no internal Muslim dialogue with
respect and dignity. The enemy wins if we are divided along
Shi'a Sunni lines.
Warn the American people of the consequences of a
steadily declining US economy. The ongoing wars and the
support for Israel are among the causes of this decline.
Note the continuing decimation of political and civil
rights in America, with the erosion of constitutional
Call for an end to the influx of weapons into Mexico.
It should be stopped as it adds to the warfare going on
Note the great suffering of the people of Haiti. The
return of Aristide is a positive sign but much needs to be
done to reduce and end the daily suffering of the
Notice that the conditions of immigrants and refugees in
the US need to be studied and improved.
Urge that the Irish people be given their rights and the
conflict resolved in a just manner with the removal of

Greensboro, NC: April 22, 2010
Dr. Siddique's Khutba on Women in Islam to 800 Muslims +150
Dictatorship are linked to Oppression of women
Imam Badi Ali has been leading a peaceful movement for the
transformation of Muslim communities in America. Through a
decade of loving care, compassion and committment, Br. Badi,
as his friends call him, has helped the large Muslim
community in North Carolina to focus on human rights, civil
rights, good manners and a good understanding of the
suffering of the Palestinian people.
On April 22, Imam Badi Ali opened up the entire community to
the preaching of Dr. Kaukab Siddique about the rights of
women in Islam. As the mosque in Greensboro is too small to
hold the entire community, Dr. Siddique had to give two
khutbas. More than 400 people attended each khutba, for a
total of 800. The early comers were there at 12.30 and the
second group at 1.30.
Most of the people are from Sudan, Iraq, Jordan, Palestine,
Somalia, Libya and Egypt. Smaller numbers were Pakistanis
and African Americans.
Another 150 people turned up after sunset prayers to
participate in an intense question answer session about
women with Dr. Siddique.
Here are some segments of the two khutbas:
Genuine Islamic movement always includes men and women
working together in harmony within Islamic laws of dress,
behavior and separation.
Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, sought shoora with women in key
moments of Islamic history and accepted the advice of
Sahaba, r.a., included men and women working together.
Ayesha. r.a., the scholar, leader and teacher.
Umm Ammara, r.a., the warrior. She showed us what Ishq
[selfless love] for Muhammad, pbuh., means. The dirty arrows
of propaganda by the Zionists against the Prophet, pbuh,
must fall on our chests, not on the sublime character of
Fatima Zahra, r.a., on the battlefield, healer and
Asma, r.a., and her key role in hijra of Muhammad, pbuh.
Summayya, r.a., the defiant female slave, first martyr of
The Prophet., pbuh, was the first to stop sexual misconduct
with female prisoners of war.
Proof that women standing behind men in prayer are not
Islam is the ONLY RELIGION which fixes shares in the
inheritance for women.
Islamic Palestinian women are in the forefront of the
struggle against Israel.
Islamic women in hijab are defying the regimes of the
tyrants of Libya, Yemen, Syria, Bahrain and Jordan. They
also played a huge role in the overthrow of the Egyptian and
Afghan women and children support the Taliban. In so many
years of war, not one woman has betrayed the Taliban.
We are coming out of the era of nationalism and, before
that, of colonialism. Women were playthings of the dictators
and kings. Allah Almighty is slowly reversing the
We sometimes overemphasize the standards of modesty for
women. Islam teaches us that modesty must begin with MEN. No
one was more modest than the Prophet, pbuh, and Usman,
We have freedom of expression in USA and should use it to
rebut those who attack Ayesha, r.a. Speak out against bigots
and scum like Spencer.
Millions of women in America are oppressed and exploited
beyond all levels of decency. Our character and compassion
and love should be such that all the women attacked by
America's mass culture [Zionist in inspiration] should enter
the fold of Islam.

Jamaate Islami's Frontier Leader Says 24,000 Muslims Killed
in Army Operations. Our daughters are being burned alive.
1,000 Mosques Destroyed in US-Kayani-Drone Attacks
April 17, 2011, Speaking to a large crowd in the eastern
Punjab city of Gujrat, the second top leader of Jamaate
Islami, Sirajul Haq, denounced the military operations being
carried out by General Kayani's army divisions in the
frontier areas of Pakistan. In a sweeping overview of the
US-Pakistan operations against the Islamic populations, he
presented a reality check on the horrendous suffering of
defenseless populations. Referring to the joint operations
by Pakistan's US-backed-funded-armed military, he at one
moment emotionally referred to the crimes being committed
against the people. "My Dir, my Khyber, my Mohmand, my
Bajaur are in flames," he said. "The dopattas of our
daughters, sisters, mothers are burning." This was a major
effort by a top Islamic leader to bring to the Pakistani
people the horrors of the secret operations being carried
out by General Kayani and the US Air Force in the Islamic
populations of frontier villages. The stark statistics, he
said, are that the army has martyred 24,000 people. The US
drone attacks and the Pakistani assault, has destroyed more
than 1000 mosques, he pointed out.
Pakistan is being undermined by the made-in-America army. In
Sirajul Haq's words, these are the people who turned East
Pakistan into Bangladesh. They are the ones who undermined
the jihad in Afghanistan and Kashmir.
He also referred to Aimal Kansi and Ramzi Yusuf, handed over
to the US by the Nawaz Sharif regime. [Ed.note: Kansi had
attacked CIA headquarters and was executed in a US prison.
Ramzi Yusuf was tortured into confessing to a plan to bring
down scores of air liners. He is in a supermax prison in USA
which is sound proof.]
Sirajul Haq, who is known for his piety, deep Islamic
awareness and courage, said that the Zardaris, Gilanis,
Asfandyaris and Sharifs of Pakistan are the slaves of
America. Even their dogs and horses are feeding their fill
while the children of the poor are dying in the explosions
of the army's long artillery.
He vowed that the Islamic rule will come and the country
will be ruled from its network of mosques, not from
minister's offices. In our rule, he said, the Chief Justice
will have the Qur'an in his hands, not a book of English
Pakistani Politicians are Involved in US Drone Attacks:
LAHORE, Apr. 24: The Jamaat e Islami chief, Syed Munawar
Hasan, has said that the PML(N) was equally responsible for
the PPP government's failure and all its crimes.
Addressing a public gathering at Rawalpindi Sadiaabad
Chowk, on Sunday in connection with the JI's membership
drive, he said the parties in the ruling alliance and the
friendly opposition were equally to be blamed for the drone
attacks, price spiral, load shedding, unemployment and
lawlessness in the country.
He advised the masses to reject US puppets and bring forth
an honest and competent leadership in the next
Syed Munawar Hasan said, it was the JI that had first of all
created public awakening against the US and the drone
attacks, and other parties were joining this drive now which
was welcome. He said the JI had all along been stressing the
need for a common strategy by all political parties to break
the US stranglehold.
The JI chief pointed out that the secular armies of the
world had been proved failure and helpless against the
Afghans. The NATO forces were facing a clear defeat as
the unarmed Afghans had inflicted a humiliating defeat on
the sole super power of the world. However, Pakistan was
burning in the fire lighted by the US.
He stressed upon the nation not to wait for the total
destruction of its future generations and rise against the
US subjugation in accordance with the Sunnah of the Holy
Prophet, adding that the US would be turned out from
Afghanistan as also from Pakistan.
. He said the membership drive of the JI was
aimed at convicting the general public that the parties and
leaders they had been voting for in the past had placed the
country in US slavery and they should not to vote for US
puppets, plunderers and exploiters next time.
