Anniversary of Usman ibn Affan, r.a., martyred on Zulhijja
18, 35 hijri. He was one of the greatest companions of the
Prophet, pbuh. He was son -in- law of the Prophet, pbuh, and
was with him in almost all battles. He spent his wealth to
support the Islamic cause more than anyone else. . He was
the compiler of the Qur'an which every Muslim reads today.
When the sectarians attacked him in his home, he decided to
give his life without shedding any Muslim's blood. His
commander, Muawiyyah,r.a., defeated the united fleet of
Europe in one day.
Breaking News: Syria
Iranians beaten back but Aleppo pulverized by Russian Air
An Iranian brigade which had on September 24 captured
Handarat Camp just outside northern Aleppo with bombing
support by Russia was driven out by mujahedeen from
al-Nusra, FSA and ahrar al-Sham on September 25. This key
area is back in Islamic hands.
Eastern Aleppo has been pulverized in five days of steady
bombing by Russian jet bombers and Alawite-Shi'ite jets of
the Damascus regime. The bombing is directed at civilians.
On September 24, eleven children and 8 women were among the
53 civilians killed in the bombing. As we go to the press on
September 25, the bombing of Aleppo is continuing with
another 23 civilians killed. [The bombing campaign has cut
off the city's water supply. Earlier Russians bombed a
convoy bringing food supplies to the opposition population
In the Hama area on September 23, Islamic factions of FSA
advanced towards Hama and captured several villages. On
September 24, the fighters were subjected to 22 air strikes
by the Russians. On the Homs front, IS continues locked in
battle with Shia-Alawite troops west of Shaer oil field.
Near Shadadi in Hesakeh province, IS shot down an American
drone and sent the photo of its wreckage to the Syrian
Observatory. America is mobilizing the Communist Kurds to

Hadith of the Week.
Important for Behavior in America:
Don't Talk to People while in the Toilet.
The messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said: Do not talk
to each other while defecating nor be looking at each
others' private parts, for such behavior displeases
[Hadith narrated by Abu Saeed al-Khudri, r.a., in the Sunan
of ibn Maja, abwab ut-tahara wa sunaneha.]
Comment by Kaukab Siddique: This behavior in "wash rooms"
and toilets is very common in America. It might be true of
other countries too. It adds to the general atmosphere of
semi-nudity and lack of modesty. Islam is a complete way of
life and Islamic life style must be adhered to even in the
washroom or toilet.

On September 23, Br. Kaukab Siddique gave the juma khutba at
Masjid Jamaat al-Muslimeen in central Baltimore. It was a
very mixed gathering: Arabs, Pakistanis, African Americans,
Africans but it's a small masjid so here is the outline of
the khutba for distribution on line.
Surely Allah commands you to make over trusts to their
owners and that when you judge between people you judge with
justice; surely Allah admonishes you with what is excellent;
surely Allah is Seeing, Hearing.
[The Quran 4:58]
[A Christian ruler Heracles asked the then pagan Abu Sufian
about Muhammad pbuh]: What does this man command you? Abu
Sufian answered: "He says: Worship Allah alone and do not
make anyone an associate of Allah in His Power and authority
and give up the beliefs and ways of your forefathers . And
he commands us to pray , be truthful and chaste in our ways
and help those near related to us......" [Fragment of an
extensive hadith in Sahih Bukhari, narrated by Ibn Abbas,
Before we look at the police atrocities across the
country, let us look at the foundational problems in the
daily lives of our people.
Food, water and air are polluted.
Millions eat unhealthy food at fast food places. Others
buy food with additives in it. Meat comes from animals which
are fed with dangerous products.
Water is polluted as we saw in Flint, Michigan. Even
"safe" water has traces of metals which can have slow but
cumulative effects. The rich segments of society waste water
resulting in serious water shortages.
The air is full of the emissions of millions of cars
[though now considerably reduced]. Toxic wastes are pumped
into the air. Cigarette smoking has gone down after
thousands died of it but many don't know that second hand
smoke can be slowly fatal.
[The Prophet, pbuh, did not want even the smell of garlic
and onions in the mosque, let alone cigarette smell in
People wonder why there is so much and so many kinds of
Lack of free health care. If you don't have a good job,
you don't have good health care or any health care. Those
who need it the most cannot afford it.
Lack of free higher education. Countries which we
consider backward in many cases have free higher education.
America spends a billion dollars a WEEK on war in
Afghanistan and Iraq. A $38 billion million military package
is going out to "Israel" in addition to what it already
Drugs are pouring into the country. Why don't the
authorities stop them? Why are liquor licenses given out?
Why are there no attempts to stop the easy and seemingly
attractive sale of liquors.
Most importantly there is no justice. If you don't have a
good lawyer, you can get a heavy sentence. Almost two
million people are in prison.
Look at the condition of Muslims here. If you try to help
people who are wounded or orphaned in US bombing of Muslims
in Somalia, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, you
will be treated like a terrorist.
Police shootings of Black and poor youths are becoming
routine. The men in uniform shoot to kill if you are Black.
Injustice has become so rampant, if you try to run away from
police, you will be shot down.
Ask those who know: Malcolm X who was murdered because
he spoke the truth, Imam Jamil al-Amin who stopped drugs in
his area of Atlanta is now in endless prison.
Families of imprisoned people, be they Muslims, Black or
Hispanic are not allowed to appear on TV to speak about
their loved ones.
The opponents of the government are demonized on TV.
There is NO RIGHT OF REPLY. The role of the media is to stop
any unified front against oppression.
Islam is the only solution for America's problem. You have a
right to speak out under the First Amendment. You have the
DUTY to speak out under the orders of the Qur'an. Do not
incite to violence or break the law, but denounce
oppression, Zionism, Israeli control of America and the
militarization of the police.
We must have a united front against the media. Notice they
will not allow any media coverage to any authentic Islamic
opponent of the war, the bombing, the drones, the
surveillance, the networks of Jewish Zionists and Christian
Zionists and puppet Muslim groups.
Adopt the preventive health advice of the Prophet, pbuh.
[Tibb e nabawi.] He ate little and hardly any meat. Wash
your hands. Pray five times a day and you will avoid the
perils of stress which have made millions of people sick and
Read the Qur'an and the hadith regularly every day. No one
can defeat the Word of Allah and the example of the Prophet,
Remembering Maulana Maudoodi
September 22, 1979. Sayyid Abul 'Ala Maudoodi, the greatest
Islamic scholar of the 20th century C.E. passed away. He
taught an entire generation of western educated Muslims that
Islam is a COMPLETE WAY of LIFE, not a bunch of rituals. He
faced the forces of military dictatorship, sectarian
religion and secular materialism and gave them a resounding
defeat through sheer scholarship and self-sacrifice. The
Islamic movement in Pakistan which has often neutralized
rulers controlled by America THROUGH PEACEFUL MEANS is a
living tribute to Maudoodi's uncompromising but rational
interpretation of the Qur'an and the Hadith.

Spotlights From Imam Badi Ali
Islamic Response to Race, Color, Nationality.
[Imam Badi Ali leads a large congregation in North
The Qur'an recorded racism and arrogance 038:076
[Iblis (Satan)] said: "I am better than he, You created me
from fire, and You created him from clay."
Islam is against all forms of racism and bigotry. Racism
is the belief that one race is superior to another, or one
color of skin is superior to another, or the people of one
country are superior to another. Such beliefs are the
characteristics of ignorance (jahiliyyah). In Islam, we
believe all races are equal in the sight of Allah and the
only characteristic that makes someone superior to another
is righteousness (taqwa).
Allah has dignified all of the children of Adam. That
means the entire human race.
We all came from Adam and Adam was created from clay.
Allah created different races and tribes so we can
recognize each other and learn from one other, not so that
the races would fight or oppress each other.
Allah created different skin colors and languages as a
sign of His power.
We understand from the Prophet:
That Allah the Exalted, created Adam from a handful which He
took from the earth, so the children of Adam come in
accordance with the earth. Some come with red skin, white
skin, or black skin and whatever is in between.
When the world talks about America, they refer to the
white race. But what do they mean by that? They mean
oppression and aggression.
Our true race is mankind. Remember we all are human, we
don't have among us a creation from Mars.
No creation has the right that his creation is superior
than another creation, just because of color.
I was born in Palestine and lived in Kuwait I never
considered color as significant. I do not identify people by
race; I identify them by their names, abilities and
Humans are equal and No human race is superior.
Humanity has no color
Don't confront racism with racism but confront racism with

I have nothing to do with me. It is the choice of my

Injustice in New York's Notorious Garner Case: The Shocking
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen]
New York City - Ramsey Orta, the young friend who took a the
video of Eric Garner's confrontation and murder by New York
City cops, is facing a four year prison sentence for weapons
and drug possession. People have asked why Eric Garner's
family, settled for a $7 Million settlement in their
wrongful death suit against the city, did not help Ramsey.
However, the Garner family has not received a penny of that
settlement money because there is a love child involved and
a judge is determining how much Eric Garner's heirs are
supposed to get.
The case against Ramsey Orta and the circumstances
surrounding his arrest were always suspect. Supposedly, he
was caught with a .22 pistol, which is not the weapon of
choice for today's youth. That is a Saturday Night Special
from the old days, like the 1960s and even 1970s. People do
not always settle out of guilt. Sometimes, their attorneys
tell them to settle because fighting those charges is too
daunting a task and too risky to allow a jury to decide
Ramsey believes that the NYPD is out for revenge. I, myself,
am fearful that something may happen to him while in prison
the same way it happened to Adam 'Abdul-Hakim (Larry Davis).
In 1985, all 'Abdul-Hakim did was tell some corrupt cops he
no longer wanted to sell drugs for them. Their response was
to send five cops to his apartment to murder him. This was
all discovered during his trial but, a corrupt judge
sentenced him to 25 years for weapons possession.
During the first week of his stay at Riker's Island Prison,
some corrections officers beat Adam "Abdul-Hakim in the back
with their night sticks thereby paralyzing him for life.
When he was close to getting out, his Muslim brothers were
all put in 23 hour lock down for unknown reasons, while a
crazed prisoner was allowed to pounce on him stabbing
'Abdul-Hakim to death. Many people, including retired police
detectives, saw this as an act of revenge by the NYPD - A
nearly 30 year vendetta! These people are so patient, unlike
the ku klux klan, they lay in wait and plot your death years
It could get pretty bad for Orta in the New York prison
system especially after he sent this tweet in response to
the killings of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge,
earlier this year: "Cry me a river," Orta tweeted after the
Dallas massacre. "Dead police makes my day one hell of a
blessing. 559 MURDERED THIS YEAR ALONE!! F--- YOUR DEAD PIGS
& YOUR SYSTEM!!"
Ramsey Orta begins his prison sentence in October 2016.
Right now, he is staying with his wife in Las Vegas, NV
until it is time to return. A judge was benevolent enough to
allow him that privilege. As it stands, the only person
present during Eric Garner's death that has been sent to
prison is the person who took the video of the murder rather
than the people who caused it.
Ramsey Orta has pending lawsuits against New York City for
NYPD misconduct, which involves multiple arrests for drug
possessions that were, eventually, dismissed. Also, he,
along with nineteen inmates, have a lawsuit alleging that
Riker's correction officers put rat poison in his food,
during one his stays at Riker's, after an arrest. In all, he
is suing for over $30 million dollars.

India Threatening War to Divert Attention from its
Atrocities in Kashmir.
Pakistani Women United with men in the Struggle against
Jamaate Islami Leader Sirajul Haq Addresses Women.
by Qaiser Sharif
LAHORE, Sep. 24; Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator
Sirajul Haq, has said that India was creating war atmosphere
to divert the world attention from her brutalities in
Kashmir but in case of an attack, she would be facing a
thousand times stronger Pakistan than in 1965.
Addressing the JI Youth festival under the aegis of the JI
women's wing at Aiwan e Iqbal on Saturday, he stressed upon
the world community to take notice of India's war plans and
her threats to Pakistan in order to save the region from the
horrors of war.
The festival was attended by a large number of female
students from schools, colleges and universities.
He however, warned that an India- Pakistan war now would not
be confined to the two countries but its flames would spread
in all directions.
Therefore, he said, the world should not sit idle but should
take practical steps to restrain India and prevent a war. At
the same time, he said, India should come out of war
hysteria and hold meaningful talks on the Kashmir issue.
Sirajul Haq said that India had been facing extremism since
long. Hindu fanatics were treating the minorities of
Muslims, Sikhs and Christians worse than animals. On the
economic front, India was suffering from worst type of
poverty and millions of her citizens were forced to go to
sleep with empty bellies. Yet, Indian Premier Modi was
spitting venom against this country to conceal his
He also exhorted the women emulate the golden example of
Syeda Fatimah (RA) and Syeda Aishah ( RA) and make their
contribution to the struggle for the Islamic revolution.
The JI chief said that the Pakistani nation was determined
to face any enemy challenge like one man. He said that in
the 1965, even the Pakistani women had come out of their
homes with batons and lathis in their hands to deal with the
enemy and added that no enemy could defeat a nation whose
women and children were imbued with such a spirit of jihad
and love for martyrdom, he added.
Sirajul Haq deplored that while the enemy was preparing for
war, the rulers in Islamabad were busy in amassing wealth. A
system based on injustice and exploitation was going on in
the country, the masses were deprived of basics of life but
the ruling elite was enjoying the luxuries of life.
He said that education and health were not among the
priorities of the government and the rulers had not built a
single big hospital in the country during their rule, where
they could get proper treatment.
Sirajul Haq told the gathering that the JI would ensure
implementation of the constitutional provisions related to
women's rights. At the same time, he said, the rights of the
minorities' women must also e protected.

Mohmmad Momin Khawaja, Canadian Prisoner Seeking Human
Investigative Study of the Suffering of a Muslim prisoner in
Momin Khawaja's parole hearing was legally due in 2014 but
it did not happen. They scheduled in August 2016 but
postponed it until October 2016. In view of this, there is
systematic and planned series of articles appearing in the
Canadian news media including few videos - most likely
sponsored by the intelligence apparatus and trying to
falsify the facts of the actual case, alleging acts of
violence which were not committed by Momin Khawaja,
poisoning the public thinking and trying to undermine his
prospects for a fair parole hearing and its favorable
M. Momin Khawaja, 23, Canadian citizen, a fresh graduate
from Algonquin College of Science and Technology is an
innocent victim of the politically indoctrinated justice
system. The trial judge based on the evidence sentenced him
to a total of 10.5 with 5 years for parole eligibility. The
theories and perceptions of crimes under the anti Terrorism
Act - all happened overseas except one and none involved any
violence or threat of violence in Canada or against anybody
anywhere on the planet, and included a charity donation
approximately $859. to an Afghan displaced women and
children fund, making of cell phone jammer and attending one
day camp overseas. The trial judge acquitted him from the
"terrorism" charge in the London plan Khyam activities.
Subsequently, the Ontario Appeal Court and the Supreme Court
Appeal, contrary to the original trial verdict, increased
the sentence from 10.5 year (5 years for arole) to a Life
and 24 years- 10 years for parole eligibility without any
hard evidence, indeed, a slow death for a crime that our son
did not commit nor he was charged with.
The irony of legal injustice was clearly demonstrated by few
of the judges of the Supreme Court at the appeal hearing on
June 11, 2012. The Honorable Mr. Justice LaBel of the
Supreme Court of Canada addressed the focal issue and asked
the Prosecution "Why should M. Momin Khawaja be sentenced to
Life and 24 years when he did not commit this crime nor he
was charged with this crime." The Prosecution replied that
"terrorism should be viewed in a broader global context and
to send a harsh message to all prospective terrorists." This
was not an evidence-based charge to punish M. Momin Khawaja
for Life- 24 years sentence nor did he commit this crime
according to the official record.
On January 15, 2012 at the SHU, Ste Annes des Plaines,
Quebec, another inmate attacked Momin with boiling water and
caused severe life-threatening injuries and burnt good parts
of his body. As painful and humiliating that senseless and
unprovoked attack was, Momin told his grieving parents that
his pain and suffering turned him toward more reflection and
toward his character with compassion and forgiveness, a
higher level of character for the good of mankind. Yet since
that horrible incident, we have serious continuing concerns
about his health recovery and safety.
For Three Years Kept in Solitary Confinement: After this
horrible attack and in sharp contravention to the
international law of humanitarian values and Canadian laws
of dealing with the prisoners, Momin Khawaja was kept in a
solitary confinement for continuously three (3) years. The
Minister of Justice and Commissioner of Correctional Service
were informed and were asked to remedy the situation but
took no action.
Torture in Prison: The affidavit by M. Momin Khawaja dated
January 12, 2015, clearly states that he is being tortured
by highly sophisticated biotechnology- nanotechnology
systems at the prison. During parents' visits, Momin
Khawaja explained and exhibited most unusual sadness and
feelings of tormenting pains . The reason being that
according to his experience at the segregation cell, he is
being tortured 24/7 by some invisible program in operation
at the SHU. He complains of severe pains and anguish felt on
different parts of the body and often systematic mind
control measures to undermine his human personality,
integrity and credibility. This is an alarming development
previously unknown. Based on his specific experience in
recent days, he believes that the authorities are using some
technology-based sophisticated torture techniques to create
artificial pains and as if he is being stabbed and implied
to cause further lifelong damages to his mind, abilities and
survival as a human being. This pattern of torture
corresponds to the media reports furnished by the prisoners
at the Guantamo Bay Prison in the US.
In reality, M. Momin Khawaja did not commit any crime of
violence or acts of terrorism against anybody anywhere in
this world. He had no criminal profile. The accusations
against him (happened overseas) are a laughing stock in
legal determination. Yet, the prosecution used "suspicion"
as law and interpreted theoretical hearsay and charged him
with crimes which defy logic and reason. Some of the Supreme
Court judges were biased and racist to sentence him to a
Life and 24 years. After more than 12 years, he is asking
for a fair and overdue parole hearing to return to normal
life, continue and complete the graduate education at
Laurentian University (Ontario), and prove to be a worthy
law-abiding citizen of Canada
