America's Attempt to create a New "Islam": Why did it
succeed in the Sheikhdoms?
SHOULD A WOMAN OR A MAN TRAVEL ALONE? HADITH ANSWERS
Some male scholars say that if a wife leaves the house for
any reason, she must ask her husband's permission. They say
that even the woman's voice is "awrah" and should not be
heard. If she travels, her husband or a male relative must
accompany her. What do the Qur'an and the Hadith really
Answer by Br. Kaukab Siddique: We must realize that
according to the Qur'an, authority belongs to ALLAH ALONE.
 Any attempt to give authority to any human being is
SHIRK, which is the only sin Allah does not forgive.
The Qur'an is a progressive revelation, which went through
stages of development of the Muslim woman and the Muslim
male. In the final analysis, male-female relations in Islam
are based on TAQWA [Fear of Allah, God-conscious behavior],
not on gender. 
In the FINAL revelation about men and women, the Qur'an
proclaimed without ambiguity that the believing men and
women are EACH OTHER'S protecting friends and guardians, not
the woman under the domain of the male. 
In times of insecurity and war, in long journeys, the
Prophet, pbuh, ordained that a woman should travel with her
husband or a male relative. The intent of this was to help
the woman and to provide security, not to put the woman
under the control of her husband.
Some scholars who argue that the wife must obey the husband
use the issue of travel.
There is a whole series of omissions, either dishonest or
out of ignorance, carried out to use this issue. The
following Hadith is quoted:
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, " It is
not permissible for a woman who believes in Allah and the
Last Day to travel except with a Mahram." [Bukhari]
However, that is not the complete Hadith. Here it is with
the key words in bold type: The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, " It
is not permissible for a woman who believes in Allah and the
Last Day to travel for one day and night except with a
One day and night connotes a long journey. Nowadays, one can
travel halfway around the world in a day and a night. This
is certainly not about a woman going shopping or to meet her
friends down in the city. In those days, it was dangerous
and one could lose life, goods and honor to bandits on the
way. There were no highways or electric lights on the sandy
However, the misuse of Hadith does not end there. These
scholars do not note the context and do not let anyone know
that restrictions were put on males too. Here are the
The Prophet, pbuh, said: " Travel is a kind of punishment.
It limits food, drink and sleep. When you have completed the
requirements of travel, return quickly to your family."
[Bukhari and Muslim.]
MISUSE OF THE PROPHET'S (PBUH) WORDS
The Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, spent much of his life in
Madinah in jihad. He traveled extensively for jihad and
hence there are numerous hadith about travel and its
It's a shame for some modern Muslims and who have never
spoken against the oppressors, let alone gone for jihad, to
use the words of the greatest liberator of women, Muhammad
Mustafa, pbuh, to subjugate women.
SHOULD A MAN TRAVEL ALONE?
When a man went out for a journey, his life was often in
danger. Here is another Hadith on the subject, which stops
men from going forth alone:
The messenger of Allah, pbuh, said: " A horseman going alone
is satanic. If there are two going by themselves, they are
two Satans. And three is the proper [recommended] caravan."
[Sunan of Abu Dawood and Sunan of Nasa'i]
The messenger of Allah, pbuh, said; " If people knew what I
know about the bad aspects of traveling alone, no one would
travel alone at night." [Sahih Bukhari]
The Islamic solution, the Prophet, pbuh, gave was excellent
but we Muslims have forgotten it. Where possible, especially
where satanic forces are at work, Muslims should travel in
groups, even if these are very small groups, and the
traveling should be well organized:
The messenger of Allah, pbuh, said: " When three of you
travel, make one of your companions the ameer." [Sunan of
We are living in times where travel conditions are being
affected by the antagonistic activities of our enemies. So
go forth prepared: Someone asked the messenger of Allah:"O
messenger of Allah, I have the intention of travel. Please
advise me". He [the messenger, pbuh,} replied: " The fear
and awareness of Allah [taqwa] should always be with you,
and at every high point [in the journey] say takbeer!"
[Sunan of Tirmidhi].

Oppression of Women & Children
by Qaiser Sharif
Declaring the present regime as the most incapable in
history of the country, Senator Siraj ul Haq, JI Amir said
the PTI disappointed the masses and deceived them in a way
that was not witnessed earlier although former rulers were
not less responsible for the destruction of the country.
He said tall claims were made by the prime minister to bring
reforms in every sector but his government had not
introduced a single reform in any sector in past two years.
The biggest province of the country, he said, was presenting
a pathetic situation of governance as its every sector was
on the verge of collapse due to incapability and
incompetence of the team imposed by the prime minister on
"We gather here to record out protest against the increasing
rate of rape incidents and Punjab government's complete
failure to provide safety to the masses," he said, adding
the PTI government made it impossible for the children and
women to go outside of their homes. A law of jungle was
prevailing in the country and rulers were in deep slumber,
Jamaat-e-Islami Secretary General Ameerul Azim, Deputy Emir
Liaqat Baloch, Jamaiat Ahle Hadith Head Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer
and other leaders also spoke on the occasion.
Azim said the PTI government's made countless blunders after
coming into power in every sector from economy to foreign
policy. He said the government failed to introduce reforms
in the NAB and launch across the board accountability
Baloch said the Motorways rape incident was horrific and
exposed the government and law enforcement agencies'
inability to provide protection to the masses. He said the
enforcement of system based on the brilliant principles of
Islam was the solution to the problems facing the
A large number of people including women and children
holding banners and placards in condemnation of women's and
children's abuse and other heinous crimes participated in
the sit-in. They shouted slogans against incapable rulers
and demanded severe punishment for the criminals involved in
the heinous crimes.
Pakistan was not only the dream of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali
Jinnah but it also guaranteed freedom of the Muslims of
Jammu and Kashmir as well as the protection of the Indian
The AJK President Sardar Masood Khan has said that an
economically and militarily strong and stable Pakistan was
not only the dream of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah but
it also guaranteed freedom of the Muslims of Jammu and
Kashmir as well as the protection of the Indian Muslims.
"The principles of faith, unity and discipline set by the
great leader is a prerequisite to turn Pakistan into
economic power and to make it invincible in terms of
defense," he declared.
While talking to delegations from different strata of life
here, he said that faith, unity and discipline was not
merely a political slogan of the great Quaid, but he had
personally followed this principle in letter and spirit in
his political struggle, and through the inception of
Pakistan, he practically proved how much the faith, unity
and discipline of the nation were imperative to achieve the
The AJK president said that Quad-e-Azam was the well-wisher
and benefactor of the Kashmiri people in the real sense
because he was firm to make Kashmir part of Pakistan, and to
materialize the dream of granting democratic, constitutional
economic rights to the people of the state. He had visited
Kashmir in 1926, 1929, 1936 and 1944, closely watched the
plight of the Muslims of Jammu and Kashmir, and raised his
voice for their political, religious, and socio-economic
rights, he added.
Sardar Masood Khan said that in turn, the Muslims of Jammu
and Kashmir also firmly believe in the political acumen of
Quaid-e-Azam and love him.
Citing a message of Quaid-e-Azam to the Kashmiri leadership
in 1946 that is one year ahead of the creation of Pakistan,
the state president said that in his message, the great
leader had called upon the Kashmiri leadership to make their
people well disciplined in educational, socio-economic and
political terms, and the struggle for their rights
selflessly and firmly, and then no power on the world would
be able to deny freedom and legitimate rights to them.
Describing Kashmir liberation struggle as a continuation of
the two-nation theory, the AJK president said that the worst
discriminatory treatment being meted to Kashmiri people and
Indian Muslims under the Hindutva agenda has once again
proved the political sagacity and farsightedness of
Quaid-e-Azam and his colleagues.
Now even pro-India political parties and leaders of occupied
Kashmir are realizing the authenticity of the two-nation
theory, he said and made it clear that the two-nation theory
does not mean denying the rights of non-Muslims and
minorities in Kashmir.
The AJK president said that in the history of the Jammu and
Kashmir state, the Hindu pundits have always been living in
peace with the Muslims, and they have not only been
appointed on top government positions but discriminatory
treatment has also been never extended to them on a
"It is high time that the whole nation follows political
principles of Quaid-e-Azam," he said adding that the
liberation struggle of the Kashmiri people can never succeed
nor a safe future of the Muslims of South Asia can be
ensured without a strong Pakistan.
Erdogan did a great favor to Trump
On September 17, Turkish security
forces arrested 16 supporters of the
Islamic State.in Ankara.
While reporting these arrests, the daily Sabah which
supports Erdogan noted that Turkey had captured an IS Iraqi
operative in Syria and handed him over to the US security in
Iraq. After that Trump launched that attack in which the
leader of the Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was
cornered and killed in Syria. [Probably the Iraqi IS man was
tortured to disclose the information on Abu Bakr,] [New
Trend notes that this killing was used by Trump for his
popularity just as Obama had used the assassination of Osama
bin Laden in Pakistan.
This killing helps observers to understand why Erdogan has
such a friendly relationship with USA and Israel as well as
with Russia. Erdogan uses public relationship to gain
popularity in Pakistan but also keeps his other leg with the
enemies of Islam.]

Lawyers opt for paycheck over justice in Breonna Taylor case.
by Sis. Aisha, Jamaat al-Muslimeen
On March 13th 2020, Breonna Taylor was murdered by police
serving a "no-knock" warrant.for her ex-boyfriend, who lived
miles away. Since her murder, there have been many protests.
Many professional athletes have been wearing her name on the
back of their helmets or uniforms. All of this publicity
surrounding Taylor's murder paid off for her family's
attorney: Benjamin Crump!
On September 15, 2020, Louisville, Kentucky Mayor Greg
Fischer announced a whopping $12 million settlement to
Breonna Taylor's family. This settlement also includes a
"slew" of reforms in the police department where the
officers worked. One of the reforms requires more oversight
by top commanders. That does not sound like any significant
Seeing the photo with attorney Benjamin Crump and Rev. Al
Sharpton standing with Breonna Taylor's family makes me
suspicious about any efforts to arrest these police
officers. According to Community Cop co-host Michael Greys,
Benjamin Crump gets one-third of that $12 million
settlement. Community Cop co-host Noel Leader stated that
Crump is allowed to travel and work in all fifty states,
which is unprecedented for an attorney to do. But, he is
allowed to do this because he has agreed with prosecutors to
focus only on a financial settlement rather than the
prosecution of criminal cops.
Normally, wrongful death settlements occur after arrests and
convictions have been made because that is proof of
wrong-doing. But, what has been happening in police murder
cases is that families are reaching settlements without
there being any officer terminations, arrests, or
convictions? This is highly irregular! The victims' families
are probably not aware that this strategy sabotages any
efforts for seeking justice.
This case was settled too quickly, as well. Just six months!
It usually takes years.
According to Community Cop:
The Louisville mayor and district attorney stated that
the police officers were not wearing bodycams during the
raid but, photos of them show that they were.
The officer who requested the "No-Knock" Warrant stated
that the area postal inspector told him that mail carriers
delivered drugs to that address. The postal inspector stated
he never told that officer anything like that.
There was an attempt to bully Breonna Taylor's
ex-boyfriend into saying that she was involved with his
illegal drug operations but, he refused. He has since been
arrested on drug charges.
Even after all this information came out about this case,
attorney Benjamin Crump did nothing but go for the paycheck.
So, I have no confidence in any said "effort" to get these
officers indicted, arrested and convicted. During the press
conference Crump sounded more interested in patting himself
on the back for getting such a large settlement than going
after the officers.
Had there been no settlement, Noel Leader stated the family
attorney would be able to depose these officers, in a civil
proceeding, and ask them the hard hitting questions should
the district attorney refuse to prosecute. He reminded
viewers that Bill Cosby is in jail, right now, because of
statements he made during a deposition! However, by getting
the settlement first, which is putting the cart before the
horse, it negates any chances of the family being able to do
Noel Leader says that taking the money, first, is a tactical
error on the part of the family. The mission should be to
get the officers jailed and then fight for a settlement. By
the way, Kentucky taxpayers will be paying Breonna Taylor's
Yet, again, the police never have to face any arrests and
they are not penalized, financially!
Of course, all of the celebrities and protesters are
wondering what's next? They want more than just the
settlement. They want these officers jailed! But, as long as
the same players/actors are involved in these cases then,
they will yield the same results: profiting from police

Asma daughter of Abu Bakr (R.A.)
A Role Model for Women.
By: ABU TARIQ HIJAZI. (With thanks to sis. Yasmin.)
From Bilal to Sumayya, the history of Islam is replete with
sacrifices rendered by the companions of the Prophet.(may
Allah's peace and blessings be upon him).
Asma bint Abu Bakr ( R.A.) has a special position among the
early Muslims, her sacrifices for Islam are numerous. Asma (
R.A.) was the
daughter of Abu Bakr and sister of Ummul Momineen Ayesha
Allah be pleased with them both). She was the mother of
Abdullah bin Zubair.
Her four generations were companions. She was the 18th
person to enter into the fold of Islam. Asma ( R.A.)
supported Islam from her early age. She played a key role in
the migration of the Prophet (peace be upon him).
Asma (R.A.) was entrusted to carry food for Abu Bakr (R.A.)
Prophet (peace be upon him) who were hiding in Cave 'Thawr'.
Thawr (جبل ثور) ]
The cave was about three miles away on a
mountainous track. She carried food daily for three days,
was seven months pregnant ! The last day when Asma
prepared their travel provisions and water skin there was no
rope to tie
them. She tore her 'Nitaq' (waist belt) into two pieces and
tied the bag with one.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) saw it, he smiled and told
"Indeed, Allah has given you, in exchange for this girdle,
two belts in
Paradise."! And thus she was named as "Zu Nataqain" (The
Lady of Two Belts). She kept this honorable title for her
After the two left Thawr cave, Abu Jahl came in searching
for them and slapped Asma (R.A.) so hard that blood oozed
from her ears. Bearing the pain with courage and tolerance,
she did not disclose the secret.
When the Prophet (peace be upon him) reached 'Quba' near
'Madinah', he invited a group that included his daughters
and Asma (RA) accompanied them. When they reached near
'Quba', she gave birth to
a boy named Abdullah bin Zubair. The Prophet (peace be upon
was very happy. He took the baby in his lap and gave a bit
chewed by him in the mouth of the baby. Abdullah was the
born to Muhajirin in Madinah.

Eventually, Abdullah consolidated his power in Iraq, Hijaz,
Arabia, the greater part of Syria and parts of Egypt.

him only if
he is killed in a vain and for an unjust cause.
