Hadith of the Week
Undue Respect for Leaders is rejected.
"I heard the Prophet, pbuh, saying: a person who likes that
people should stand up out of respect for him should find
his place in hell fire."
[Narrated by Muawiyyah ibn Abu Sufyan, r.a., when people
stood up for him when he became Caliph. Hadith #17042 in
Musnad of Ibn Hanbal.]

Please write this brother, inshaallah. If you don't know
about him please look up his case.
THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT Imam...Learn about him..
He's been locked up for a very long time and he has cancer
now from eating all these haram foods and it's so sad
because they still believe he is guilty of killing a police
officer and shooting another. It was another person that did
these crimes and because he is a great imam and influenced a
lot of Muslims, the feds felt he needed to be off the
streets...astaghfirullah... this case is very important....
we need as a ummah to start speaking out for this

Jamaat al-Muslimeen Supports strike on Assad's air base but
one shot will not do it
Alhamdulillah! For once Bashar Assad is getting some of his
own medicine. Great work Mr. Trump! The devil in Damascus
has massacred a quarter million civilians. Any blow against
Assad should be welcomed. by Muslims.
Do it again Mr. Trump! The devil is not dead yet. Mass
murderer Bashar Assad claims that all the people of Syria
are terrorists. The big liar in Damascus thought he could
once again get away with the murder of children.
Mr. Trump, do at least as much as Russia and Iran have
Just stop the air superiority of the tyrant and the
mujahedeen will take care of the devil.
If this is only a symbolic strike, it wont do the job. Just

Giving Important Jamaat al-Muslimeen Document to 101 Muslims
in Newark, Delaware
On April 7,
Jamaat al-Muslimeen gave a 6-page document to 101 Muslims at

is 60 miles north east of Baltimore,
The document was well received although a fast moving
freezing breeze was forcing people to get to their cars as
quickly as possible.
These were the six pages:

by Kaukab Siddique
There can be no excuse for bombing churches in Egypt or
mosques in Iraq. New Trend stands for an honorable peace and
an end to occupation and war.
Our condolences go out to the families of the 44 people
killed and more than 100 injured in the attacks on two
Our condolences cannot go out to the civilians killed and
mosques destroyed by the US bombing in Mosul [Iraq] because
it is illegal to show any sympathy for victims of American
Egyptian Muslims are lining up to donate blood for those
injured in the church attacks.
Can American Muslims donate blood for the victims of
American bombing in Mosul or Raqqa or the mosque in Syria
where Muslims were killed in a US air strike? The answer is
Can we send food, medicines, toys for the children of bombed
populations supporting the Islamic State or al-Nusra? NO!
You could be arrested.
The tragedy or idiocy of American policies is that after
bombing Mosul [300 killed on March 17, up to 1000 feared
dead by now], America invited General Sissi to the White
House and acclaimed his rule in Egypt.. Everyone has seen
the little devil, Sissi, sitting next to Trump with a smirk
on his face.
Sissi has killed several thousand unarmed protestors against
his regime. Sissi upended the process of rule of law in
Egypt by carrying out a coup against the duly elected
President of Egypt, Morsi. The elected leader of Egypt is in
prison while the tyrant with blood on his hands was honored
in the White House.
The Copts have always supported the tyrants ruling Egypt.
They were the key supporters of the previous tyrant, Hosni
Mubarak. Coptic churches proliferated across Cairo and other
cities while mosques were raided and Muslims and their
families were arrested tortured at length and sometimes
executed.. That is the history of Egypt. The greatest
scholar of Egypt, Syed Qutb, was executed by the tyrant
In our own times, Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman, was kept in an
American prison, to please the tyrant Hosni Mubarak, till
the great scholar died a horrible death recently.
When this tyrant Sissi went on his murderous rampage against
Egyptian Muslims, his key supporter, standing next to him in
numerous photographs, was the Pope of the Coptic church.
Dictators like Sissi and Bashar Assad, the Shias of Baghdad
and the Kabul regime use minorities like Christians,
Yazeedis and Shias to bolster their ruling cliques. Over
time these groups have become alienated from majority Muslim
communities and continue to cooperate with oppressors.
Islamic fighting groups are being hit hard by dictators and
kings. They do not have the media to reach out globally and
explain their viewpoints or heavy weapons needed to fight
back. Even Al-Jazeera English could not survive in America
although it made many concessions to American
ISIS has AMAQ media but the US constantly tries to knock it
off the air and to get its twitter accounts canceled.
Most fighting groups are influenced by the words of Shaykh
Osama bin Laden who said that if you hurt our people, we
will hurt yours.
My suggestion is that instead of constant retaliation, we
should try communication, discussion and dialogue. Islam
cannot be defeated, inshaAllah. This is not Germany or
Japan. Islam is not territorial or racial. Only an estimated
5% or less of the global Muslim population is supporting the
fighters. What should concern America is that the percentage
is slowly but steadily going up, not down.
The future should be for mutual respect and acceptance of
self-determination and not attempts at subjugation,
deception and bombing. People of Mosul, Raqqa and Aleppo
have not asked America or Russia to "liberate" them.
Neither churches nor mosques-homes should be bombed.
Invitation to Think
from Br. Robert Solano
A Mexican American & a Somalian. [example]
Islam spreads by Peaceful Means.
Latina Converts to Islam are Happy
I came across some very interesting information this week.
It involved a Mexican American and his wife originally from
Somalia. They met at work. As the days went by they liked
each other's personality and like many decided that they
wanted to enter into a marriage.
Now a Muslim woman shouldn't marry an unbeliever; that was a
problem. Both of them were highly assimilated into American
general culture and found many things in common. However,
she presented the problem to him that she could not marry
him. Some months passed.
He got arrested for an insignificant thing and found himself
in a county jail surrounded by all types of people. But
Allah had decided that he should be a Muslim; he started to
attend Islamic classes and took his Shahada. Shortly
thereafter he looked for his Somalian friend and told her
that he was a true Muslim. They got married and now have a
nine month old son. Yes, she had no need to sacrifice her
beliefs, and circumstances allowed another unbeliever to
revert to Islam.
We find many religious stories among Latino Muslims that
would surprise you. All related how they were able to
"discover" Islam and revert to it. The history of Islam is
generally presented as one that converts by the sword and
force. Yet we find that the largest Muslim country is
Indonesia where you find that no Muslim armies ever invaded
nor was the population forced by the sword to revert. This
involves over 300 million Muslims.
Many in Europe and the USA are spreading fear that Muslims
want to force Sharia Law down their throats or that the
religion of Islam is not compatible with Constitutional
democracies where the State has no official religion. This
is pure anti-Islam propaganda.
As it stands now over 60% of the Latino converts to Islam
are female. For some reason latino woman find Islam to be
compatible with their idea of what a woman should
voluntarily search for in her life. Many Latinos after
studying history are not only surprised that their ancestors
were forced to leave Islam in Spain but that they also they
were forced to leave Spain for the New World.
Every ship from Spain to the new world had a trinitarian
religious leader in it besides armed guards. Islamic culture
was under constant attack. Cruelty to animals was brought
back into the culture by the practice of bull fighting or
cock fighting and even dog fighting. The use of pork was put
in almost every aspect and made the national dish.
Discipline and show of respect, for instance, in the form of
waiting in line was discouraged. In places like Cuba the
practice was absent until Fidel Castro took over the
government in the 20th century. Yet not all could be erased
implanted by the Trinitarians.
In Spanish you say "Hola" while in English you say "Hello".
This goes back to the English speaking crusaders that were
in Jerusalem and whenever a Muslim would say "assalamus
alaikum" it was returned with "hell with you" which later
became "Hello". While in Spain the reply was "Blessed by
Allah" or "hola."

IHC dismisses Musharraf's application
Published: April 7, 2017
ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court dismissed on Thursday an
application of former president General (retd) Pervez
Musharraf seeking to quash proceedings against him in the
Lal Masjid cleric murder case.
Justice Aamer Farooq dismissed the petition seeking
cancellation of the case and nullification of the issuance
of perpetual warrants against Musharraf in the Lal Masjid
No decision made on participation: Lal Masjid
The single bench comprising Justice Farooq had enquired the
counsel for Musharraf, Akhtar Shah, to argue on how he could
represent Musharraf, especially, after he was declared a
proclaimed offender by a trial court.
In the Lal Masjid operation case, Shah argued before that
the cleric, Abdul Rashid Ghazi, was killed during a military
operation on Lal Masjid in 2007, when fundamental rights
were not operational.
He said that the armed forces were called in under Article
245 of the Constitution and such matters could not be heard
Plea to reinvestigate Lal Masjid cleric dismissed
He had added that the armed forces in aid of civil power had
carried out the operation in accordance with law after
giving due warnings and in the larger interest or prevent
deterioration of public law and order.
He had requested the court to quash the proceedings against
Musharraf in the cleric murder case.
Justice Farooq, however, directed the counsel to satisfy the
court on how he could be given right of audience while
pleading the case of a fugitive of law. On Thursday, the
court dismissed the petition.

THE MISSION OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD (S) - HOW HE ACCOMPLISHED
[Shamim A Siddiqi, New York]
INTRODUCTION: It was a human tragedy that by the middle of
sixth century AC [After Christ], previous religions had lost
the Divine Guidance. Both Torah and Engel were nowhere
traceable in their original from and shape. There was no
peace, no human rights, especially for the womenfolk,
anywhere in the world, including India.
Both Jews and Christians were in waiting for the Guidance
and the Messiah. Dr. Ta'ha Yasin of Egypt in his famous book
"Ala Hamish Seerah" has vividly described the episode of
these two Abrahamic religions in detail. They built
monasteries along the Northern belt of the Arabian Peninsula
to get the first hand information about the appearance of
the promised Prophet of Allah. But it is equally a great
tragedy of human history that when Prophet Muhammad (S)
appeared on the horizon in the later part of sixth century
AC, Jews refused to accept him as the promised Messiah and
the Christians were equally not eager to accept him as the
Prophet of Allah. History turned a new chapter. It became
the destiny of the Arabs to champion the cause of Islam,
peace and human uplift thenceforth under the teachings of
the Qur'an and the guidance of Prophet Muhammad (S).
THE MISSION OF RASULULLAH (S): When humanity was grovelling
in darkness, Muhammad Ibne Abdullah was born in 570 AC. He
was appointed as the Prophet of Allah in 610 AC. Through the
very second Wahi of Surah Al-Muddathir Allah ordained him,
"Arise and warn and glorify thy Lord"; his mission was
determined as to establish the authority of Allah on this
earth. Subsequently, his mission was made categorically
clear in Surah Al-Saf Verse 9, Surah Al-Fathe Verse 28 and
Surah Al-Tawba Verse 33 to get the Deen of Allah dominant
over the other systems of life.
HOW HE (S) FULFILLED HIS MISSION? The following features of
his (S) lifelong efforts will help in understanding the way
he proceeded to attain his mission.
To get his (S) mission fulfilled, Rasulullah (S) needed
two things. 1. The Guidance that came from Allah (SWT) in
the shape of the Qur'an. 2. A team of dedicated and
committed workers [out of reverence, we call them Sahabah]
that Rasulullah (S) gradually had to build himself through
his Dawah efforts in ones and twos.
Those who responded to his call of Dawah Ilallah, he (S)
educated them, trimmed their character and transformed them
into trustworthy characters on the basis of Iman in Allah
and His Prophet (S), accountability in Akhirah, the concept
of Amanah, love for Jannah and fear of Hellfire. Struggling
hard for 13 years in Makkah, he built a team of 124 workers
[Sahabah] in Makkah and through the magnificent Dawah
efforts of Musaa'b b Umair ®, he (S) got 63 from the tribe
of Aus and 173 from Khazraj [Ibne Hisham Vol. I]. This was
the total strength that he (S) put up in the Battle of Badr
and prayed to Allah that if Your promised help does not come
now, You will not be worshipped, "La Tabud".
Rasulullah (S) challenged the authority of idolaters
and condemned their idols right from the outset. The Batil
was not prepared at all to accept this condemnation and
hence trial and tribulations grew side by side with the
process of Dawah Ilallah. It helped in building the
trustworthy character in the leadership of the Islamic
Jamaah and in its workers.
The society of Makkah was infested with all kinds of
human problems: no peace anywhere except in and around the
Haram, lopsided economy mixed with poverty all around, no
human rights, no rule of law, only seventeen persons were
literate, no sense of justice except tribal rituals and
hegemonies. Rasulullah (S), thought contemplating about
these issues in the cave of Hera as how to get out of this
mess, He (S) undertook none of these precarious problems of
the Makkan society when he (S) was assigned the
responsibility of Prophethood.
He (S) concentrated wholly and solely to correct the man,
the individual men and women, who constitute the society. If
the man is reformed and a team of such rejuvenated brothers
and sisters is available, the fate of the society could be
revived easily as Rasulullah (S) did in his lifetime. If you
permit me to say, they were the "willing horses" to
establish the Deen of Allah on self, on their families and
the society at large, sacrificing everything for its
When such a team was available, Hijrah took place. Hijrah
was nothing but the process of consolidation of the
scattered numerical strength of Muslims at Madinah. It was
so important at that time that Hijrah became the criterion
of Iman and Kufr. Many Verses of Surah Al-Anfal, Al-Nisa and
many Ahadith confirm it.
The idolaters could not tolerate this situation of
concentration of Haqq at Madinah. It was now the HQ of the
Islamic Movement. The idolaters of Makkah attacked Madinah
time and again. Battles of Badr, Uhud and Trenches took
place during the first five years of Hijrah. But the
Movement went on accumulating strength, the team went on
growing till Makkah was conquered in the eight year of
Hijrah and the Deen of Allah was dominant in the Arabian
Peninsula within the next two years.
This was the process of Rasulullah (S) to get the Deen
of Allah established. I have described it in the briefest
possible way. It pinpoints his priorities and the strategy
to accomplish the mission assigned to him. The same was
mentioned by Imam Malik ® in his adage: " The fate of the
later part of this Ummah cannot be revived save and except
through what helped in building and shaping it at its very
outset". It refers nothing but to the lifelong efforts of
Rasulullah (S) to accomplish his mission to get the Deen of
Allah established in the body politic of the day.
If today we are desirous to struggle for the Deen of
Allah and revive the fate of Muslim Ummah, anywhere in the
world, we have no choice but to follow the same process in
its minutest details. Means can be changed but not the
process and the priorities, from beginning to the end.
Allah's Prophet (S) has already earmarked both the
priorities and the process of Iqamatuddeen. There is no room
for deviation. The Islamic Movements that try to reach the
end through cut short methods could not succeed and they
will never be as without building the requisite team and
creating an urge in the masses for the Deen of Allah,
history of the first century of Hijrah cannot repeat itself.
This should be the most eloquent strategy of the Islamic
Movements of the world.
CONCLUSION: Human society at the threshold of the twenty
first century has no ideology to seek redress from its
accumulated turmoil. It has become unbalanced and is fast
reaching to the other end of the pendulum. Islam that could
serve the humanity in an accomplished way and keep its
growth in moderation is nowhere traceable as a political
identity in the form of a model modern society in any part
of the world. All the three Abrahamic faiths have neglected
their creed one way or the other. Jews and Christians have
nothing to offer as they were in the sixth century AC. The
Muslims do possess the ideology for the suffering humanity
to attain solace but it is lying buried in the Qur'an and
the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (S). Muslims could not
transform it into a modern social and political reality.
It is now the responsibility of the Muslim leadership, the
Islamic Movements of the world and the Muslim masses to
build an Islamic society, an Islamic state and an Islamic
social order based on justice and fair play on the lines
demonstrated by Rasulullah (S) in his lifetime and briefly
depicted as above. The life-pattern of Rasulullah (S) is to
be followed meticulously, leaving the devastating
socio-economic problems of the Ummah in the background and
carrying out the struggle for Iqamatuddeen in the forefront
with extraordinary resources that this Ummah could muster.
Struggling this way for a decade or so will revive the fate
of the Ummah and along with it the fate of the suffering
humanity in its wake.
May Allah give Tawfeeq to Muslim leadership and give the
requisite courage to the Islamic Movements of the world and
its stalwarts to work intelligently and diligently to
accomplish the mission or Rasulullah (S) for the sake of
Muslim masses, the oppressed and the deprived humanity at
