A thought provoking article by Imran Khan,
Desecrating and destroying cemeteries and then having the nerve to say that a “Museum of Tolerance” is being built! Only the zionists could come up with such acts. Stripped of their humanity, bereft of all moral values, that is the reality of Zionism. Special shout out to the “US based Simon Wiesenthal Centre” which is the sponsor of this disgrace. Despicable israel and their cohorts such as the SWC.
On September 16, 1931, Umar Mukhtar the famous and courageous mujahid who fought against the Italian occupiers was executed at the age of 70.
“I shall not cease to fight against thee and thy people until either you leave my country or I leave my life. And I swear to thee by Him who knows what is in men’s hearts that if my hands were not bound this very moment, I would fight thee with my bare hands, old and broken as I am …”
— As narrated by Muhammad Asad (Leopold Weiss) in his book “The Road to Mecca” as Umar al-Mukhtar’s reply to (the butcher of Fezzan and butcher of Ethiopia) General Rodolfo Graziani of Italy.
As Italy’s forces unleashed a barbaric campaign to colonize Libya/Cyrenaica, brave souls rose up in Jihad against the oppressors. Indiscriminate killing of Libyan men, women & children was carried out by the Italians to realize their goals. A whole people were imprisoned as thousands were sent to concentration camps by the Italians to suffer in squalid starving conditions. But brave warriors waged a Jihad of self-defense and watered Libya’s soil with their blood. These mujahids live on as Martyrs.
An eloquent and thought provoking speech by Aafia Siddiqui on Islam, women’s rights, and insightful comments about present day state of muslims and societies.
29:69 As for those who strive in Us, We surely guide them to Our paths, and lo! Allah is with the good.
In order to achieve the regeneration of Islam, the Muslims must, before adopting any measures of reform, free themselves entirely from the spirit of apology for their religion. A Muslim must live with his head lifted up. He must realise that he is distinct and different from the rest of the world, and he must learn to be proud of his being different. He should endeavour to preserve this difference as a precious quality, and pronounce it boldly to the world — instead of apologising for it and trying to merge into other cultural circles. This does not mean that Muslims should seclude themselves from the voices coming from without. One may always receive new, positive influences from a foreign civilization without necessarily destroying his own. An example of this kind was the European Renaissance. There we have seen how readily Europe accepted Arab influence in the matter and method of learning. But it never imitated the outward appearance and the spirit of Arabian culture, and never sacrificed its own intellectual and aesthetic independence. It used the Arab influences only as a fertiliser upon its own soil, just as the Arabs had used Hellenistic influences in their time. In both cases, the result was a strong, new growth of an indigenous civilization, full of self-confidence and pride in itself. No civilization can prosper, or even exist, after having lost this pride and the connection with its own past
Muhammad Asad in “Islam at the Crossroads” (Section/Chapter “About Imitation”)
USA’s freedom of expression doesn’t apply to muslims. A courageous man who was imprisoned for speaking the truth.
If Mehanna is a terrorist conspirator for advocating resistance to US military occupation, then so am I, a Marine veteran
The real criminals in the Tarek Mehanna case
Read the eloquent statement of American Born Tarek Mehanna at his sentencing.
An American Former Congresswoman’s brave tale. A long read, but a very enlightening one. A perspective on how israel’s minions control the United States. Also, the quote about the Balkanization of muslim states such as Sudan (Pakistanis would do well to remember our situation vis a vis Baluchistan).
“People must not be afraid. Please don’t be afraid.”
“It all started with a fax,” she told me. As a candidate for the US Congress, she received a fax from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). “The fax was a pledge stating that as a candidate I would commit my tenure, should I win, to the military superiority of Israel, to Jerusalem as the capital city, to continued aid at the level requested by Israel. There were around five to seven points on this piece of paper and I didn’t sign it.” This was in 1992. Most people, she said, do sign it and that is how politicians get money for their campaign. “I didn’t sign it; I didn’t really understand how Washington DC works, so I didn’t get any money for my campaign. I was able to win but I won with nothing. Then the fact that I didn’t sign the pledge kept coming up over and over and over again. So I knew that this document that I had balled up and thrown away was really very important.”
From the moment that she refused to sign the pro-Israel pledge, claims McKinney, “war was declared on me”. She did not realise the extent to which that was going to resound in her life. “I would get phone calls from people saying they wanted to throw a fundraiser for me and then I’d say fantastic and we’d start planning it and then the question would be asked ‘did you sign the pledge?’” She’d say no and then it was, “well then I can’t do a fundraiser for you.” And that was the way it went. “A lawsuit was filed against the district that elected me. It went all the way up to the Supreme Court.” Later she found out that the Anti-Defamation League, a notoriously pro-Israel group, had been involved in filing the brief: “Clearly, the ADL didn’t forget that I hadn’t signed the pledge.”
Came across an interesting article in DAWN,
A wonderful marriage of the physical sciences with spiritual healing. No compromise made to the medical treatment. Spiritual healing not used as a substitute to professional medical treatment and yet in perfect harmony with modern healthcare, Surah Al-Rahman from the Holy Quran brings healing and health to patients.
Also, the doctor talks about the need for young doctors to educate themselves about the composition of poisonous pills. The need for a helpline & monitoring cell for toxicology to be available to all
“During the treatment of Abbas, Surah Al-Rehman was continuously played by his bedside and this worked as a wonder antidote,” he said.
Interestingly, Dr Javed is neither a cleric nor a faith-healer. He has a distinguished record as a medical practitioner as his visiting card shows — MBBS, FCPS (Pakistan), FCCS (USA) and FDM (USA). Currently, he is the head of the Services Hospital’s ICU and a consultant physician and intensivist.
Who is it that will lend unto Allah a goodly loan, so that He may give it increase manifold? Allah straiteneth and enlargeth. Unto Him ye will return.
Surah Al-Baqara – Verse 245 (English Translation: Pickthal)
This is not a fictional work but a real incident. A story about a kitchen help/dishwasher woman in Lahore, Pakistan. A poor woman. One day, in the holy month of Ramadan (i.e. the month of fasting), she ran out of flour (atta) for her family. The family started the day by fasting and the woman left for work not knowing where her next meal would come from. She didn’t ask her employers for help. Her predicament remained. Out on the road, she came across a flour van/truck. In the month of Ramadan, people are more generous and give food items such as flour bags. There were others on the road, but for some reason, the man in the van singled her out and gave her a sack of flour. She put the sack on her head and headed home breathing a sigh of relief. On the road, she met a woman with a crying child. It turned out that the woman and child were hungry and had no food. Moved by the sight, she handed over the flour sack to the other woman. (She had a family, husband, children of her own to feed. She was poor and yet she helped someone she deemed more needy than her. Put yourself in her shoes. How many can make such a decision when hunger threatens you and your loved ones?) She resumed her journey home empty-handed fraught with worry. What would her children, her family say when they found out what she had done? How would she feed her family?
She entered her house and what did she see? There were TWO sacks of flour. “HOW?” She asked. Turns out, her husband, who was a laborer on daily wages, went to work. Being the month of giving and charity, the man who hired the laborers for work only took labor for half a day instead of the full day, gave the laborers Rs 250 apiece as well as two sacks of flour to every one.
A poor woman in need found the generosity to make such a big sacrifice and she was rewarded and fed in such an unexpected way. When we give, we get returns in this life in so many ways even if we may fail to recognize those returns. The returns can come in many forms and manners. But, the reward that awaits the sincere charitable people in the after life – one can only imagine their wonderful returns.
