Gaza Cancels Protests for Second Week in a Row
The weekly March of Return protests along the Gaza-Israel
fence have been canceled for the second week in a row,
Lebanon's Al-Akhbar newspaper reported this morning.
According to the paper, a number of reasons prompted the
Higher National Commission of the Great March of Return and
Breaking the Siege to cancel the weekly protests including
not granting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the
opportunity to start a new military confrontation with Gaza
to save himself at a time when he has been indicted on
charges of corruption.
The Palestinian body fears Netanyahu, who became the first
sitting prime minister in Israel's history to be indicted on
a number of charges including bribery, fraud and breach of
trust, would use the confrontation to improve his public
The paper said it is widely believed that "Israel will
violate the terms of the ceasefire concluded in the last
round" and shoot demonstrators at the border, which will
prompt Islamic Jihad to respond and lead to a new
confrontation that would only benefit Netanyahu in these
The Palestinians' desire to examine the area around the
fence for any residue after the recent Israeli shelling, has
also been given as a reason why the protests have been
The paper said the commission is discussing whether to
reduce the frequency of the protests to once a month as a
result of the change of the situation in Gaza.

Syrian Man Opens Shawarma Restaurant in Islamabad
from Sis. Yasmin
Meet the Syrian man Adnan also Known as Abu Amir (Father of
Amir) who has opened the 1st Arabic Shawarma shop in F10
Markaz, Islamabad, Pakistan. Being a residence of United
Arab Emirates, I can say that this is pure Arabic
This Syrian refugee Adnan couldn't make his way to Europe
but rather than going to any neighbouring gulf country, he
chose to move to Pakistan at the beginning of 2019.
Adnan started selling Shawarma in Islamabad almost 6 months
before. But because of the original taste of Shawarma he
serves, his restaurant became famous very fast. Now hundreds
of customers from the different parts of Islamabad, visit
him every day to enjoy Syrian Shawarma.
Interesting thing of Adnan is that it's only 6 months since
he opened the Shawarma Restaurant in Islamabad, but he is
able to speak very good Urdu now.
Question: Muslims are divided owing to the war between Ali,
r.a., and Muawiyyah, r.a.
Does Islam offer a third view which could be for peace and
Response by Kaukab Siddique, PhD
"Narrated Abu Bakra: The Apostle of Allah
(peace_be_upon_him) said to al-Hasan ibn Ali. This son of
mine is a Sayyid (chief), and I hope Allah may reconcile two
parties of my community by means of him.
Hammad's version has: And perhaps Allah may reconcile two
large parties of Muslims by means of him. (Sunan of Abu
Dawood. Book #40, Hadith #4645)
Hasan, r.a., was the elder grandson of the Prophet, pbuh.
Muslims love him because the Prophet, pbuh, loved him, He
turned out to be a man of excellent character steeped in
piety and worship.
In the years of conflict between Ali, r.a., and Muawiyya,
r.a., Hasan, r.a., was constant in his opposition to the
war. He was so intense in his opposition to the war that he
came into direct opposition to Ali, r.a.
When Ali, r.a., was murdered, Hasan became Caliph for six
months. A huge pro-Ali army supported him and was ready to
go to war with Muawiyya, r.a. under the command of Hasan,
When the army realized that Hasan, r.a., was serious about
stopping the fighting with Muawiyyah, r.a., the generals
went to the extent of physically attacking Hasan, r.a., and
tried to kill him. He was barely saved by his close
supporters and escaped although injured. His property was
looted by his own troops.
There were several attempts by the Shias to kill him.
Most Shias do not know or are not allowed to know that
Hasan, r.a., was strongly in favor of stopping the war and
finally gave his bayat [oath of allegiance] to Muawiyyah,
r.a., who honored and respected him and gave him a large
stipend every year to help him continue his studies and his
Hasan, r.a., lived comfortably under the rule of Muawiyyah,
r.a., and never opposed him.  Muawiyya, r.a., even gave
him five million dirhams to pay and calm down his own army
which had turned against him. 
The shias have tried to paint Muawiyya, r.a., as the devil
and simply ignore the facts about Hasan.
It was not an easy task for Hasan, r.a., to make peace with
an opponent of Ali, r.a., with whose army there had been
physical combat. Even Hussain, r.a., the younger brother of
Hasan opposed his decision for peace but Hasan was
determined that no more Muslim blood should be shed.
Muawiyyah, r.a., wanted the unity of the Muslims too. He
agreed to every condition stipulated by Hasan, r.,. He
promised to rule by Qur'an and Sunnah and the example of the
first three caliphs. He also released large sums of money so
that Hasan, r.a., could pay off his debts, fulfil his
obligations and take care of his daily needs.
Shias are outraged when told that Hasan, did bayat [gave
oath of allegiance] to Muawiyya, r.a., but there are
numerous authentic reference to this oath of allegiance.
Here is one which is his final statement in which he
reprimanded his Iraqi "supporters" :
"Al-Hasab ibn Ali gathered together the leading people among
his supporters in the palace of Mada'in. He said 'O people
of Iraq, even if I did not give up on you for other reasons,
there were three reasons which sufficed me: your killing my
father, your stabbing my horse, and your looting my
belongings, even the cloak from my shoulder. You swore
allegiance to me vowing to make peace with whomsoever I made
peace with and to fight whomsoever I fight. I HAVE SWORN
ALLEGIANCE TO MUAWIYYAh. So, listen to him and obey' Then he
came down and went into the palace."

LAHORE- Nov 23: Protest demonstrations were held across the
country on appeal of Jamaat-e-Islami chief Senator Sirajul
Haq to condemn the desecration of Holy Quran in Norway.
A large number of people from all walks of life attended the
protests in Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar, Quetta and
other cities, demanding strict actions against the person
who tried to burn the copy of Holy Quran and laws to stop
such acts in future.
JI Secretary General Ameerul Azim led the protest in front
of Mansoora and showered praises for the young Muslim who
interrupted the attempt through his brave act. He said
Islamophobia was on the rise in the West and it was
tantamount to destroy the world peace. He said anti-Islam
extremists must understand that every Muslim in the world
was ready to sacrifice his/her life to protect the sanctity
of Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and Holy Quran. He said
enemies of Muslims were afraid of the popularity of Islam
and hatching conspiracies to prevent the message of the
Islam which was a religion of peace and brotherhood. He said
conspiracies against Islam would never succeed. He demanded
the Muslim rulers file cases in their respective countries
against the persons involved in anti-Islam rally the
shocking acts of blasphemy in Norway. He said Pakistani
government should immediately take up the matter at all
international forums including the UNO. He thanked the
people of Norway who expressed solidarity with the Muslims
and held protests against the incident.

Zikrullah Mujahid also addressed the participants.
Marriyum Aurangzeb Challenges Imran Khan
[Pakistan Today, 11,20.]
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Information
Secretary Marriyum Aurangzeb on Wednesday challenged Prime
Minister Imran Khan to appear before the Election Commission
of Pakistan (ECP) in the foreign funding case and to declare
his tax record and assets of his family.
In a statement, she said that during the past 37 years,
Imran has lived a lavish lifestyle but has paid only Rs4.7
million in taxes. "He calls other the thief but he is
actually the biggest thief himself," she said, adding that
if the premier is innocent, he should declare his tax record
and asset details of his family.
She also said that Imran talks about the difference in rules
and laws for the rich and poor but he himself enjoys
exemption from those laws. "He must tell the nation why did
not declare the foreign accounts and assets maintained under
the name of Jamima Goldsmith, Roehampton Khan and Bushra
Bibi and his children. He hides his own assets but
investigates three generations of the Sharif family over
their assets," she added.
She further accused the premier of incompetence and said
that he must inform the nation about his "23 secret bank

Tourism not right for Pakistan
by Athar Mohiuddin [Canada]
Western style tourism is recipe for pollution n degradation
of the ecological environment n ruining of the character of
the people. Ik wants to make it hoopla for tourists but it
will be disaster which cannot be measured in dollar value.
Just note the dress that crazy woman is wearing in diff
locations as if she is a thoroughbred westerner. What kind
of role model is she? Why cant niqabi role model in
promoting tourism. After all IK wife is perfect role model.
Simply put inferiority complex. Video:
Ilhan Omar and Sharia. Can she be a Muslim when this is her
[From an activist in Baltimore. Name withheld on
as salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullah
Did you hear that Ilhan Omar proudly introduced legislation
that condemns Sharia law in Brunei? (not to mention her
advocacy for LGBTQ and abortion, and Marxism).
Yet, she is a celebrity and key note speaker for CAIR
(Council on American Islamic Relations). I asked Ibrahim
Hooper of CAIR about these issues with Ilhan Omar but he did
Now, Ilhan Omar is endorsing zionist Jew Bernie Sanders. I
think she was put in that position to be a controlled
opposition within the elite political establishment.
She only wears her hijab for identity politics, as
proclaimed by the Democrats. If she didn't claim to be a
Muslim, I would have a lot more respect for her. Sometimes
Marxists will take the correct position on issues, such as
condemnation of zionism. But as you know so well, Communism
is also an extremely oppressive system.
It has also been shown that Ilhan Omar has a history of
"shacking up" with boyfriends, and calling them husbands,
and saying it was from her "faith tradition" (but not a
legal marriage). She breaks up with boyfriends with whom she
lives, and calls it a divorce "in her faith tradition:.
I'm just shocked that none of the larger, well funded
Islamic organizations ever call her out on these things. She
is a hero, or I should say, a shero, to these organizations.
But her introducing legislation to condemn Sharia law
against a small country (Brunei) should make it plain that
she is not a Muslim. It is interesting that the Democrats
used her as the one to introduce the anti-Islamic
legislation against nation of Brunei. How can Ibrahim
Hooper/Nihad Awad defend this, and still use her as their
key note speaker for events?
She is definitely a controlled opposition agent who is
working for the zionists. Do you agree?

China Is Using Artificial Intelligence on Its Uighur Muslim
It's been estimated that China's government has detained as
many as a million members of the country's Muslim population
in so-called "re-education camps," in part of a campaign
that has alarmed human rights activists across the
This week, drawing on 403 pages of leaked government
documents, The New York Times published new details of how
the ongoing crackdown took shape under Chinese President Xi
Jinping and other leadership in the Communist Party of
China, how government workers who resisted the plan were
sidelined, and what officials were instructed to tell young
people whose families had been detained.
"They're in a training school set up by the government to
undergo collective systematic training, study and
instruction," the talking points read, adding, "You have
nothing to worry about."
The Chinese government's campaign against those it says have
been exposed to extremism is centered on an autonomous
region, Xinjiang, where nearly half of the 25 million
residents are a Muslim people called the Uighurs.
Earlier in November, a FRONTLINE documentary called In the
Age of AI examined how, as part of its crackdown involving
the Uighurs, China's government has made Xinjiang a test
project for forms of extreme digital surveillance.
Among those efforts, the film reported, is an artificial
intelligence system that the government claims can predict
individuals prone to "terrorism" and detect those in need of
"reeducation" at scores of recently built camps.
"The kinds of behavior that's now being monitored —
you know, which language do you speak at home, whether
you're talking to your relatives in other countries, how
often you pray — that information is now being
Hoovered up and used to decide whether people should be
subjected to political reeducation in these camps," Sophie
Richardson, China Director for Human Rights Watch, tells
Surveillance and artificial intelligence technologies are
being deployed all throughout China. Cameras with AI-powered
facial recognition are everywhere, and various pilot
projects use AI to give people a "social credit" score,
punishing some for certain behavior and rewarding others for
what the government considers good citizenship.
But the ends to which this technology is being used on the
Uighur population, activists in the film say, are
"They have bar codes in somebody's home doors to identify
what kind of citizen that he is," lawyer and a prominent
Uighur activist Nury Turkel says, warning that China's
government is using new technologies to help carry out mass
punishment of an ethnic group.
Though China's government says conditions inside its
"re-education camps" are very good, as the film says, there
have been reports of torture and deaths inside them.
The documents published in part by The New York Times this
week were leaked, the Times said, by "a member of the
Chinese political establishment" who hoped to help hold
party leadership accountable for detaining Muslim citizens
Following the publication of the Times' story, a Chinese
government spokesman defended what he called "a series of
preventive counterterrorism and de-extremism measures" that
he said had been successful in preventing violent terror
attacks in Xinjiang. The Xinjiang regional government
responded more forcefully, describing the Times reporting as
"total nonsense and a pack of lies." Chinese officials have
not disputed the authenticity of the leaked documents.
Importance of Dua
The following points about Dua were presented at the Shoora
of Jamaat al-Muslimeen International by Sis. Kristi:
Dua is required. Dua is not the same as our prayers. Dua
Quran says: "And your Lord said: Invoke Me and ask Me for
anything I will respond to your supplication. Verily, those
who scorn My worship they will surely enter Hell in
humiliation!" [Surah 40:60]
"The most excellent worship is Dua." (Sahih Al-Jami)
Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon
him, called "dua the essence of worship" At Tirmidhi
Prayers are public, encouraged to prayer with others. But
Quran says our invocations to Allah should be done in
secret: Quran says: "Invoke your Lord with humility and in
secrecy" [Qur'an 7:55]
Dua is a form of Jihad. The Ummah is suffering all over
the world. Make Dua for them!
The Prophet (pbuh) said, "Dua is the weapon of the believer,
the pillar of faith, and the light of the heavens and the
earth." Kulayni 1407AH, 2:468.
Holy Prophet (SAW) said: "The Dua of a Muslim for his
brother (in Islam) in his absence is readily accepted. An
angel is appointed to his side. Whenever he makes a
beneficial Dua for his brother the appointed angel says,
'Ameen. And may you also be blessed with the same.'" (Sahih
Allah said "Ask forgiveness for your sin and also for the
believing men and women" [Qur'an 47:19]
Dua has the power to change the future
Prophet (SAW) said, "Dua turns away destiny and good deeds
lengthen age." (Tirmidhi
Make Dua in the state of Obedience:
Quran 2:186 says "And when My slaves ask you concerning Me,
then answer them, I am indeed near. I respond to the
invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me. So let
them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led
aright" [Surah Al-Baqarah, 2:186]
Hudaifah(RA), narrated that the Prophet
said, "By Him, in whose hand is my soul, you should enjoin
good and forbid evil or else it is likely that Allah will
send a punishment upon you and then you will invoke Him and
you will not be answered" (Tirmidhi)
Dua provides the keys to success and the keys to happiness
(salvation). The best dua is that which comes from a clean
and pure heart" Kulayni 1407AH, 2:468
Be humble, but be Firm in your Dua:
He also suggested that the believer be humble, yet firm when
making dua and said, "When one of you supplicates, he should
not say, 'O God, forgive me if You will,' but be firm in
asking and make the desire great, for what God gives is
nothing great for Him." Saheeh Muslim
Hadith: Abu Hurairah narrated that Allah's Messenger
said: "None of you should say 'O Allah forgive me if You
wish,' 'O Allah Be Merciful to me if You Wish'; but he must
appeal to Allah with determination, for nobody can force
Allah to do something against His Will." (Tirmidhi).
Make Dua while Attentive and MIndful:
Always make sure that your heart is mindful when you are
supplicating because Allah does not answer a Du'a from an
inattentive heart. Abu Hurairah narrated that Allah's
Messenger صلي الله
said, "Invoke Allah while you are certain to be answered and
know that Allah does not answer a Du'a from a heart which is
inattentive and unmindful" (Tirmidhi).
Be Confident, Have determination, Have Belief - believe
that Allah really is there and hearing you:
"And when My servants ask you concerning Me, (tell them) I
am indeed near. I respond to the invocation of the
supplicant when he calls" [Qur'an 21:187]
Quran says: "And your Lord said: Invoke Me and ask Me for
anything I will respond to your supplication. Verily, those
who scorn My worship they will surely enter Hell in
humiliation!" [Surah 40:60]
Make Dua, then be patient:
the Prophet صلي
وسلم said, "The invocation of any
one of you is granted (by Allah) as long as he does not show
impatience by saying 'I have invoked Allah but my request
has not been answered'" (Bukhari). In another narration by
Abu Hurairah, the Prophet صلي
وسلم said, "A servant is granted his
request as long as he does not invoke Allah for a sin, or to
break kinship ties, and he does not make haste."
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The
Messenger of Allah (PBUH), "The supplication of every one of
you will be granted if he does not get impatient and say
(for example): 'I supplicated my Rubb but my prayer has not
been granted'.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Make Dua without loudness of words.
And remember your Lord within yourself, humbly and with fear
and without loudness in words in the mornings and in the
afternoons." (Quran 7:20)
Invoke Allah in a low tone as it is closer to sincerity:
"Invoke your Lord with humility and in secret. He does not
like the aggressors" (Qur'an 37:55).
"And remember your Lord by your tongue and within yourself,
humbly and with fear without loudness in words, in the
morning and in the afternoon and be not of those who are
neglectful." [Qur'an 37:205]
There are a few things that will prevent our Dua's from
Don't be Impatient; Don't ask for anything Sinful; Don't ask
for anything that will cutoff the ties of kinship:
The narration of Muslim is: "The supplication of a slave
continues to be granted as long as he does not supplicate
for a sinful thing or for something that would cut off the
ties of kinship and he does not grow impatient.'' It was
said: "O Messenger of Allah! What does growing impatient
mean?'' He (PBUH) said, "It is one's saying: 'I supplicated
again and again but I do not think that my prayer will be
answered.' Then he becomes frustrated (in such
circumstances) and gives up supplication altogether.
Doing righteous deeds will help put us in the right
state to make Dua:
"And He answers (the supplication of) those who believe (in
the Oneness of Allah - Islamic Monotheism) and do righteous
good deeds, and gives them increase of His Bounty. And as
for the disbelievers, theirs will be a severe torment."
Make Dua in time of need and in times of plenty and
The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said: "Whosoever desires that
Allah answers his Duas in unfavorable and difficult
conditions, he should make plentiful Dua in days of ease and
Abu Hurairah narrated that the Prophet
said, "(Anyone who is pleased) that Allah responds to him at
the time of trouble and distress, (should) increase Du'a at
the time of calmness." [Tirmidhi]
Prostration is better, but not required for Dua:
Prophet (SAW) said: "A slave becomes nearest to his Lord
when he is in prostration. So increase supplications in
prostrations." (Sahih Muslim).
Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon
him, said, "A slave becomes nearest to his Lord when he is
in prostration. So increase supplications in
prostrations.'' "The supplication of every one of you
will be granted if he does not get impatient and say, 'I
supplicated my Lord but my prayer has not been granted'.'
Saheeh Al-Bukhari, Saheeh Muslim
Riyad as-SalihinvvvvIn-book reference Book 17, Hadith 1498
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:The
Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "A slave becomes nearest
to his Rubb when he is in prostration. So increase
supplications in prostrations."[Muslim].
Hands open and raised:
The Prophet (SAW) said:"Your Lord, may He be blessed and
exalted, is characterized by modesty and generosity, and He
is so kind to His slave that, if His slave raises his hands
to Him, He does not let him take them back empty." [Narrated
by Abu Dawood, 1488; classed as Saheeh by Al-Albaani in
Saheeh Abi Dawood, 1320]
The Prophet (SAW) also said:"Allah is Most Generous, and He
dislikes to turn away empty the hands of His slave when he
raises them to Him." [Narrated by Al-Tirmidhi, 3556; classed
as Saheeh by Al-Albaani in Saheeh Al-Tirmidhi].
Raise ones hands: It is a recommended practice to raise
one's hands in making Du'a as it was done by the Prophet
عليه وسلم at
different occasions. Abu Musa al-Ash'ari narrated, "The
Prophet invoked and raised his hands and I saw the whiteness
of his armpits." [Bukhari]
Dua is accepted at any time but a few times are better:
Abu Umamah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) was asked: "At what time does the
supplication find the greatest response?'' He (PBUH)
replied, "A supplication made during the middle of the last
part of the night and after the conclusion of the obligatory
"In the last third of every night our Rabb (Cherisher and
Sustainer) (Allah (SWT)) descends to the lowermost heaven
and says; "Who is calling Me, so that I may answer him? Who
is asking Me so that may I grant him? Who is seeking
forgiveness from Me so that I may forgive him?."'
Allah answers and He has Plenty, so don't be afraid to
The Prophet صلي
وسلم said, "Any Muslim who
supplicates to Allah in a Du'a which contains no sin or
breaking of kinship, Allah will give him one of three
things: either his Du'a will be immediately answered or, it
will be saved for him in the hereafter, or it will turn away
an equivalent amount of evil (from him)". The companions
said "...so we will ask for more." He replied, "Allah is
more (generous)." [Ahmad]
Trust in Allah and certainty of reply: One must be certain
that Allah does whatever He wishes, whenever He wishes.
Allah tells us in the Qur'an: "And there is nothing, but
with Us are the stores thereof. And We do not send it down
except with a known measure" (Qur'an 15:21). In a Hadith
Qudsi narrated by Abu Dharr, Allah revealed through the
Prophet صلي الله
"O My servants, were the first of you and the last of you,
the human of you and the jinn of you to rise up in one place
and make a request from Me, and were I to give everyone what
they requested, that would not decrease what I have anymore
than a needle decreases the sea if put into it" [Muslim]
We may not get what we ask for, but Allah does
Our dua is heard and rewarded, but we may not get what we
ask for or expect. Holy Prophet (SAW) said about it:
"Whoever does Dua to Allah, Allah fulfills his seeking or in
exchange averts misfortune until the Dua is not related to
sin or breaking some relation." (Tirmidhi)
Being a state of obedience is better and our condition
matters and helps our Dua be heard (have a pure heart, do
good deeds, be humble, etc) but there are three
supplications that are never rejected by Allah:
"The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said; Three supplications will
not be rejected by Allah, the supplication of the parent for
his child, the supplication of the one who is fasting, and
the supplication of the traveler." [Tirmidhi]
