Hadith of the Week
Aisha's,r.a., Miracle: Revelation of Tayammum.
How Much she
Loved the Prophet,pbuh; Ignored Father's Anger.
Narrated 'Aisha: (the wife of the Prophet) We set out with
Allahs messenger on one of his journeys till we reached
Al-Baida' or Dhatul-Jaish, a necklace of mine broke (and
lost). Allah's Apostle stayed there to search for it, and so
did the people along with him. There was no water at that
place, so the people went to Abu- Bakr As-Siddiq and said,
"Don't you see what 'Aisha has done? She has made Allah's
messenger and the people stay where there is no water and
they have no water with them." Abu Bakr came while Allah's
messenger was sleeping with his head on my thigh, He said,
to me: "You have detained Allah's messenger and the people
where there is no water and they have no water with them. So
he admonished me and said what Allah wished him to say and
hit me on my flank with his hand. Nothing prevented me from
moving (because of pain) but the position of Allah's
messenger on my thigh. Allah's messenger got up when dawn
broke and there was no water. So Allah revealed the Divine
Verses of Tayammum. So they all performed Tayammum. Usaid
bin Hudair said, "O the family of Abu Bakr! This is not the
first blessing of yours." Then the camel on which I was
riding was caused to move from its place and the necklace
was found beneath it.
(Sahih Bukhari: Book #7, Hadith #330)
Comment by Kaukab Siddique: Revelation came, related to
in a place where there was no
water for wudu. Tayammum is part of the Qur'an. That's just
one of the miracles connected to Aisha, r,a.
See how much the Prophet, pbuh,
loved her that he stopped his caravan to look for her
necklace. Look at how much Aisha' r,a, loved him that she
did not move at all while her father was getting very angry
Jamaat al-Muslimeen Activity in Falls Church, Virginia:
Unusual paper on ISIS
After juma' at Dar al-Hijra masjid in Falls Church,
Virginia, an 8-page document was given to 128 Muslims. Some
Muslims veered away so a to avoid the distribution but most
of them liked it and thanked us.The khutba was good but the
end they invited a CAIR representative with a lot of
flattery and praise.
This 8-pager has been distributed at major mosques in the
tristate area. Here is an outline:

Political Prisoners :
How Maulana Maudoodi Responded to Hard Core Bigotry.
In her Urdu language book Shujr hai Saya Dar [Trees with
Deep Shade], Syed Abul 'Ala Maudoodi's daughter writes about
"My dear father used to take the children with him to pray
Juma' in the neighborhood mosque in Ichhra. The preacher at
the mosque was deeply opposed to my father. At one juma,
when my father was sitting right in front of him, the
preacher said: O Muslims, if a Maudoodite dies and he is
buried and a plant grows on his grave and a goat eats the
plant , remember drinking the milk of that goat is haram.
Even then my father prayed behind that preacher.
That evening the workers of Jamaate Islami asked my father:
These people who say nasty things about you, how can we pray
My father replied: Yes, do pray behind them. From whatever
Qur'an and hadith I have studied, nowhere does it say:
Prayer behind those who abuse Maudoodi is not valid!
Secondly, don't waste your time expressing explanations on

What this very interesting article has tried to tell can be
Tax is the one and basic tool and instrument of oppression
by rulers from ancient times till today.
The issue was relevant in times of Jesus Christ as it is
in modern democracies.
The revolts and wars have been the result of oppression as
a final solution but they have seldom brought lasting peace
and tranquility for humanity .
Islamic law of state and government has dealt with the
issue most explicitly and there are eminent Muslim 'jurists'
who have discussed the issue of 'khurooj' -(-'Violent
struggle against the rulers'), at length since the very
first century of the Muslim calendar.
The issue of taxation is not left without any restrictions
upon the rulers.The Holy Quran and the Sunnah ( injucntions
of the Prophet-PBUH) have clearly and with precision laid
down the rules of taxation and they are included in
'hudoodullah', the trespassing of which is a sin and crime .
Zakat' and it's variable rate imposed upon, savings,
accumulated wealth, jewels and gold, commercial goods,
different kinds of agricultural lands,crops and cattle etc
are the solid example of this. No legitimate Islamic
government can alter it and has any right to cross the limit
and impose taxes beyond that except in cases of emergency
and through consent of people.
Those interested will find the 'wikipedia 'article useful.
It tells us the challenges to GOD's law since ancient times

Pakistan: Extreme Violation of
Human Rights in Baluchistan.
Plus Karachi Police Attacked.
April 22. The Asian Human Rights Commission [AHRC] has
issued a damning report on the Pakistani military's
violations of human rights in Baluchistan.
The army has alienated the population through arbitrary
arrests, torture and extra-judicial executions.
Among the army's victims are women and children.

As it has been said, there were no angels in the Second
World War. It was as if the devil had been let loose and was
in control of the world.
When the French, British and American armies entered Germany
from the West and the Russian hordes from the east, German
civilians were the main victims of the victors.
Bombing and killing of Muslim populations in Iraq, Syria,
Palestine and parts of Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen are known
to us from international news reports. Look at how it is
done: The US air force bombs the Islamic State [IS] every
day and then the US media demonize the Islamic State [IS] to
justify the bombing.
The Germans had been so much demonized by the allies that
the most heinous crimes against German civilian populations
created not the slightest stir of conscience in the allied
ranks and people.
Look at how proud the Americans are of their bombing of
TOTALLY DEFENSELESS Islamic people who have no way of
shooting down high flying jet bombers. The pilots are
presented as heroes and their victims as faceless people.
Their families are never mentioned.
The Russians have murdered several thousand Syrian civilians
within a few months and injured many more. They claim they
don't ever hit civilians and their targets are only
Hellstorm by Goodrich is so well documented that there is no
way to refute it or deny it. Some of it is so gruesome that
it is difficult to read without breaking down. Read it in
bits and pieces.
Here are some of the main points in outline:
The destruction of entire German cities, especially after
they became defenseless.
The eviction of entire German populations from homes in the
east of Germany where they had lived for centuries.
The rape of the entire German womanhood, from age 8 to
The desecration and destruction of churches, chapels and
libraries, the violation, humiliation and rape of nuns.
The assault on helpless convoys of civilians fleeing with
their meagre belongings.
Entire male populations and German prisoners left to slowly
die in open air prison camps owing to starvation and
German minorities in Czechoslovakia, Rumania, Hungary and
Yugoslavia were butchered. In Czechoslovakia alone 200,000
Germans, including women and children were slaughtered, many
of them beheaded.
In France, more than 100,000 French people who had
collaborated with the Germans or were anti-Communist were
killed WITHOUT TRIAL.

Learning From Ethiopia: Massive Poverty but in it Faith in
Allah does not Waver. Thousands of men and women in the
mosques for prayers.
by Sis. Ashira Naim [Jamaat al-Muslimeen.]
[Sis.Ashira has now been in Ethiopis for 4 months.]
[A birr is Ethiopian money.]
[Adhan is the call to prayer.]
There is no true venture without "learning" as part of its
journey. So, let me share with you some of the things that I
am learning while on this venture to help hungry, needy
people in Ethiopia. Firstly, let me pause to once again to
thank the very noble believers, without whose contributions,
this effort would be next to impossible. Alhamdullilah for
The Believers. Allah's Reward is sufficient.
I've learned that this world (specifically planet earth) is
no more or less than the learning grounds for all of us. We
cannot reshape or alter it in any way; rather, we are shaped
by our responses to it. When I walk or ride through this
very different environment of Ethiopia, I am amazed how in
spite of the environmental differences, man is so similar,
truly a creation of Allah, adaptable to his environment. I
am not practiced everyday to walking on broken grounds,
crossing streets without the assistance of light signals,
having hands reaching out (begging/asking) at every few
steps, seeing so many men absolutely lying in the dust,
women carrying their babies on their backs while holding the
hand of a small walking child asking for help, so many
clinically insane on the street....yet, there are also the
men dressed in suits or otherwise nice attire, and women the
same, going about their daily routine to get to their
offices, children in school uniforms getting to school, all
walking side by side, and all this is the "norm" for this
society. So, I learn how to take my time, walk slower than
usual, to place my feet carefully until I am more
Everyone wants to end the impoverished condition
aforementioned; but rather than moan and groan, they put a
birr in someone's hand and keep on with their lives. What I
have learned is how the Adhan is so beneficial as it reminds
everyone, regardless of religion, of the importance of
prayer and mostly of The Creator Himself and His Mercy and
how we must be respectful of this creation and treat each
other with respect and kindness. And this is what I see in
spite of all the anguish. Also, I am so overjoyed, happy,
pleased to tell you that there are numerous masajid in each
town I've lived in thus far, (Addis Abeba, Dessie, and
Adama) and I've seen them fill up with men at every prayer
time (I'm talking thousands). I get to see what is happening
with the men because my Bajaj driver or taxi driver will
have me wait "for 10 minutes" he will say while he prays.
And on Jumah the women are in overflow attendance in the
thousands. This is a delight to the eyes and a warmth to the
heart that I wish you could see. It reminds me that
regardless to what the criminals are trying to do in their
denial, Allah IS in charge!
One very visible and viable part of this society is the
youth. Believe it or not, it is hard to distinguish the
youth here from the youth in the USA. They wear similar
clothes, similar hair cuts, and engage in the production of
rap songs and dances. What is amazing is the number of young
men with degrees. Yet, they too remain in desperation and
say to me that, in spite of their educational
accomplishments, they are forced to work as waiters in
restaurants or in some other menial job due to lack of
It is in this environment that we work to in some way
brighten the day for the less fortunate and hungry people
who fill the streets, as well as, for those inside our gates
who may not ask but are indeed in need. So, last Friday,
April 8, 2016, we visited An Nur Masjid (the second largest
masjid in the city). We placed envelopes into all the
reaching hands until there were no more envelopes. We were
saddened that we had not enough envelopes for all the
reaching hands. The display of the inside of an empty
envelope was enough to tell those we could not give that
there simply was no more.
According to donations received, next Jumah we will feed on
the streets and in the vicinity of Anwar Masjid (the largest
masjid in the city). Then, it is our hope to return to the
village area of Adama with one last feeding for this year.

I conclude with the words of Allah. Holy Quran, Surah Al

thee what the Ascent is!-- (It is) to free a slave, And
to feed in the day of hunger."
US Pouring in Military Assistance to Tunisia with hardly any
Publicity. Fake Democracy has been Working Overtime to Crush
by our Media Monitor
According to report in Foreign Policy magazine, April 21,
the US has decided to provide almost $82 million in military
assistance to the tiny north African country known as
Tunisia. The latest armaments include 10 helicopters and
hell fire missiles as well as machine guns, all meant to
suppress Islamic opposition to the secularist regime.
A fake democracy has been imposed on Tunisia through the
connivance of Muslim Brotherhood groups led by Prof.
Ghannouchi. More than 2000 people were imprisoned before
elections were held. Several thousand went into exile to
support the Islamic State in Syria-Iraq.
The Tunisian embassy itself provides proudly information on
its close military cooperation with America: [Quoted uncut.]
[The figures are prior to 2016.] "In January 2011,
President Obama congratulated Tunisia and offered his
support in his 2011 and 2012 State of the Union
Tunisia has been a long standing strategic ally of the
United States and the U.S. has supported the Tunisian
military since its independence with education, equipment
and training opportunities.
The total amount of U.S. military assistance to Tunisia
since the revolution has been roughly $32 million, almost
double the amount immediately prior to the revolution. U.S.
origin military equipment comprises approximately 70% of the
Tunisian military's inventory
Tunisia has been one of the top twenty recipients of U.S.
International Military Education and Training (IMET) Funding
since 1994 and since 2003 has ranked tenth in overall
funding. Tunisia is the top IMET recipient in Africa. Over
4,600 Tunisian military personnel have trained in U.S.
institutions since its independence.
Tunisia is one of the few countries in the world that has
cadets in all United States military academies, plus the
Coast Guard academy.

JI for CJP to head enquiry commission. Islamic Rebuttal to
Prime Minister's Bitter Response to Panama Leaks. Pakistan
has been looted by its leaders.
by Qaiser Sharif
LAHORE, Apr. 22: Ameer, Jamaat e Isami, Pakistan, Senator
Sirajul Haq, has suggested that the Opposition should write
to the Chief Justice of Pakistan to constitute a commission
for an enquiry into the Panama leaks in particular and
corruption in general.
He made this suggestion during a telephone call with the
Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly, Syed
Khurshid Shah, on Friday. The Opposition Leader had rang up
the JI chief to discuss the latest situation in the country.
Sirajul Haq said that the nation had full confidence in the
Supreme Court and it was imperative that the Chief Justice
was requested to head a Commission which not only probed
into the information divulged by the Panama leaks but also
the plunder of the public wealth by different people and its
transfer abroad. The Commission should also suggest measures
for bringing the trillions of the public money lying abroad
back to the country, he added.
This is delayed -right step
LAHORE, Apr. 22; Ameer,Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator
Sirajul Haq, has said that Prime Minister's announcement for
writing to the Chief Justice for setting up a enquiry
commission was a step in the right direction although it was
much delayed, but it was the victory of the nation.
Giving his reaction to the PM's address to the nation on
Friday, he however said that the terms of reference (ToR) of
the Commission should be decided with a complete agreement
with the Opposition so that the doors of corruption could be
closed for ever.
The JI chief said that the bitterness in the PM's address
was misplaced as the allegations in the Panama leaks had not
been leveled by the Opposition but were in fact an
international disclosure. He said that there was a tradition
of voluntary resignations in the wake of such allegations
but the Prime Minister had not opted that way. He said that
the crisis should be resolved within the minimum time so
that the time of the nation was not wasted.
Earlier, while addressing a ceremony at Gujranwala, the JI
chief said that Army Chief's action against corrupt officers
was a clear message to the government that if he could
punish corrupt elements, why could not the rulers do the
same. He was talking to the media after a ceremony at
Gujranwala on Friday.
Sirajul Haq said that those who had plundered billions of a
poor nation, could not be pardoned at all. He said that the
rulers' interests lay entirely outside the country and they
came to Pakistan only to govern.
He said that it was time that we tried to leave for our
coming generations a corruption free and developed Pakistan
and evolved a system wherein even the one involved in the
misappropriation of a single penny was punished and the
penny was recovered from him. He wondered who had authorized
the NAB to write off billions by accepting plea
Corrupt defending one another
LAHORE, Apr. 22; Secretary General, Jamaat e Islami, Liaqat
Baloch, has said that the Panama leaks had exposed the
corruption of the rulers but the corrupt were defending one
another in a most shameless manner.
Addressing a youth rally at the Shahrah e Quaid e Azam, on
Friday, he said that if military officers could be punished
for corruption and the looted money could be recovered, why
could not the corrupt rulers and politicians be punished and
made to return the looted money.
He said that the nation wanted a commission under the Chief
Justice of the Supreme Court that recovered every penny of
the looted money from the rulers.
Liaqat Baloch said that the agents of the west and the
protectors of the interest based system should not be
pardoned in any way.
Truce Breaks as Assad's Air Force Bombs Muslim Civilians
across Syria: Hizbullah Offensive on Aleppo Failed Again.
Russia Bringing up Artillery to Smash Islamic Resistance.
Islamic State Trying to Enter Damascus, Shoots Down Assad's
Mig 23, Captures Pilot.
[Reuters, SOHR and Wire Services.]
April 18-24. For seven days Hizbullah with Iranian officers
and Russian air support have been trying to advance on
Aleppo but to no available. The mujahideen have foiled all
their efforts resulting in no Alawite-Shiite advance in a
whole week..Now the Russians are bringing up their long
range heavy artillery to soften up the defense. Iran is
pouring Shia militia into Syria,
Inside Aleppo city itself, the segments held by Islamic
groups are being bombed by Assad. In response the Islamic
fighters are mortaring the regime force holed up in the
Alawite segment of Aleppo. Thirdly, the Communist Kurds
known as YPG holding another segment of this huge city have
been hit by Islamics of the "moderate" FSA with civilian
Kurds among the casualties.
The cease fire was supposed to spare parts of Syria held by
the Islamic "moderates" [FSA] but Assad's air force re-armed
by Russia and Iran, is going for blood again. Bombing raids
on Muslim populations have been renewed. The worst was the
sudden assault by Assad on a market in Idlib province at
Maarat an-Na'man. The people were at market thinking cease
fire was in effect when Assad's jets struck. At least 50
civilians were killed and several hundred injured.
Islamic State is now trying to enter Damascus and topple
Assad from two approaches to the city. From the southeast of
Damascus IS is facing little resistance other than Assad's
air attacks. IS presence became very evident when the IS
mujahideen shot down an Assadi Mig 23 supplied by Russia.
Like the jet shot down in Suwaida by IS last week, the pilot
bailed out but this time he could not reach regime forces.
After a prolonged search in the Dakwa area, IS mujahideen
found the pilot and captured him.
IS wants to enter Damascus from the Yarmouk refugee camp
where Palestinians have joined IS. However the way is
blocked by Assad's tanks and secularist Palestinians of
Abbas. On the east side of Yarmouk, al-Nusra is fighting IS
trying to take over this choice way of entry into Damascus.
IS has stopped the Nusra advance. This inter-Muslim conflict
is delaying Islamic victory.
In Latakkia, al-Nusra is facing furious attempts by Alawite
and Hizbullah militias to dislodge the mujahideen. These are
back and forth battles near the Turkish border where
al-Nusra is holding its ground with the help of Turkistan
In much of Idlib province too al-Nusra is firmly in control.
Other al-Nusra controlled areas are north of Aleppo towards
Turkey, along with FSA groups and IS [often in
