A Revolution for Mankind


    Mankind is in need of Radical Change.

    Give some deep thought for a while about all that you know and have learned about your life, God (if you believe in One), and all that He has Created. Hold your current thought and belief, and all of your thoughts about all that surrounds you in your life, your family, environment and society.

    When you are convinced of a thing in your mind your heart is at peace. If you see an ant carrying a leaf, you soon learn that it can carry up to 47 times its weight. When you feel a slight breeze, watch the leaves of the trees sway and turn over to receive oncoming rain, and then turn autumn colors as the season changes, you give some thought about the beauty of it all, how wonderful it all is. You've watched storms destroy structures that man has built. You hear the neighbors' dog bark; the night birds or crickets and see the stars and moon at night, and you know, accept and believe that these are things that man did not build nor create.

    Man can see, understand and comprehend a total solar eclipse. Man has built telescopes that allow us to see far into the universe. Throughout Al-Qur'an Allah Tells mankind to do so, to look deeply into the heavens with the knowledge that he has been given to understand the laws of the universe so that through deep thought man can be convinced by Allah's Creation that He truly exists. As our minds can grasp, understand what we can see, hear, touch, smell and taste throughout Allah's Creation, this is the path to Iman (Faith) that Allah Calls us to, not what was handed down by culture and tradition, nor what was forced upon man by either conquering, subjugation nor enslavement. Once our mind grasps the existence of Allah through His Creation and is convinced of this fact, our hearts are at peace; nothing nor anyone can influence or change our mind about what Allah Has Made Clear to us.

    "And of His Signs is the creation of heavens and the earth, and the difference of your languages and colors. Behold! Herein indeed are signs for men of knowledge.” Surah Ar-Rum "The Romans" 30:22

    "Will they not look at the camels, how they were created! And the heaven, how it is raised! And the mountains, how they are set up! And the earth, how it is spread!” Surah Al-Gha'ashiya "The Overwhelming" 17:20

    "So let man reflect from what he is created. He is created from a gushing fluid, that is issued from between the loins and the ribs.” Surah At-Ta'ariq "The Night-Comer" 86:5-7


    Islam is an Ideology that requires man to think. Allah Provides man with His Clear Signs throughout Creation as Guide-posts all around us.

    "Behold! In the Creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alteration of night and day, these are indeed sings for men of understanding." Surah Al i'Imran "The Family of Imran" 4:190

    What clearer sign to and for mankind that Allah Gives than the total eclipse that traversed this country Aug. 21. The - for many of us a once in-a-lifetime (Allah Knows Best) — event was studied and analyzed from the ground, in the upper atmosphere and in space. Whatever knowledge mankind gained from this event, it is and should be a clear sign that the rotations and orbits of the earth and moon around the sun all follow the Commands given them by Allah, who Controls all things at all times.

    What clearer sign to and for mankind that Allah has power over all things than the recent Hurricane that Allah sent upon Houston, Southeast Texas and the South-Central region of this country where up to 40 inches of rain has fallen in just a few days. Now witness the successive full force hurricanes that have recently traversed and devastated the Caribbean, Florida and the Southeast region of this country.

    Allah Has Given mankind the knowledge to know when the next total eclipse will occur, over what lands, how long that next eclipse will last, and the next one, and so on. There is an obvious order to these events; obviously not random, nor are they from chance, circumstance or happenstance, as some would have you believe.

    Now some of us can comprehend that an object is 1,000,000 light years away, and some of us can understand that there may be what scientists called "exo-planets" that may have the same geological planetary make-up as this earth. Allah Knows Best, and as Al-Alim, “The All-Knowing,” whatever knowledge gained by man concerning the planets, our solar system and universe, all of Allah's Creation is from Him.

    If you have faith in our Creator from the things that you can see, then you believe in what He tells us about things that we cannot see, touch, taste, smell nor feel.

    "Allah will not leave the Believers in the state in which you are now, until He separates what is Evil from what is good, nor will He disclose to you the secrets of the Unseen..." Surah Al i'Imran "The Family of Imran" 3:179

    "With Him are the keys of the unseen, the treasures that none knows but He. He knows whatever there is on the earth and in the sea. Not a leaf does fall but with His knowledge: there is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth, nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered), but is (inscribed) in a record clear (to those who can read)." Surah Al-An'aam "The Cattle" 6:59

    As mankind can see that the sun and moon that Allah Created follow a specific order in its orbit, these things, as with all of Creation, have a relationship in the form of a system when they follow the Commands of being in existence, function and purpose given them by Allah. This is their relationship with and how they worship Allah. Mankind, when he follows a similar system of worship, which satisfies man's instinct and organic need, is afforded that same relationship with His Creator. Without this system of worship, while not following this system of worship and choosing his own man-made systems, mankind loses his way. This affects every single aspect of man's life.

    Mankind, in his arrogance, thinks and feels that he knows better than the One Who Created him. During the week Man goes about his state of affairs; and relegates Allah to Saturday and Sunday, "resting," claiming, with no proof whatsoever, that Allah did the same.


    “Allah! There is no god but He — the Living, the Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him nor sleep. His are all things in the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede in His presence except as He permits? He knows what (appears to His creatures as) before or after or behind them. Nor shall they compass anything of His Knowledge except as He Wills. His Throne extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them for He is the Most High, the Supreme (in glory).” Surah Al-Baqarah "The Heifer" 2:255

    Allah - the Uncaused Cause of all that exists - needs no rest in controlling all things at all times. Man, in his continuously failing effort to design and control other men, should know and understand that all of his man-made systems, philosophies, theories, disciplines, “isms,” — all the prejudices positive or negative that man has come up with only work to define a person based on their ethnicity, nationality, personal life choices, or the societal, economic, moral and political environment they were raised in. All the political parties, governments and "ists" groups that man has made up and joined, all for the “betterment” of man or for a "cause" against other isms and ists have led and only lead to conflict. Mankind knows better, but instead chooses to follow his own design. All are mis-guided efforts when they are not Guided by Allah.


    “Say: ‘I am forbidden to worship those — other than Allah - whom ye call upon.’ Say: ‘I will not follow your vain desires: if I did, I would stray from the path, and be not of the company of those who receive guidance.’ Say: ‘For me, I (work) on a clear sign from my Lord, but ye reject Him. What ye would see hastened, is not in my power. The Command rests with none but Allah: He declares the truth, and He is the best of judges'.” Surah Al-An’aam “The Cattle” 6:56, 57

    As Allah is One, Absolute, there are no illusions nor delusions about Allah and what He Has for mankind.

    As Islam is an Intellectual Ideology, Allah Has Challenged Mankind to prove that the final message He Sent, Al-Qur'an is authentic and otherwise unduplicated since it was revealed. The language that Al-Qur'an was revealed in is known as the natural language of mankind — as many forms of Allah's Creation pronounce the sounds that are contained in the Arabic language: the wind, thunder and rain, a cow, snake, crow, an owl, or the sound of the ocean waves. Mankind, as eloquent as he can possibly be, cannot duplicate the language of Al-Qur’an.

    “Say: ‘bring ten surahs like unto it’.” Surah Hud "Prophet Hud" 11:13

    "Say, ‘bring one surah like unto it’." Surah Yunus "Prophet Yunus" 10:38

And…

    “Say: ‘If all mankind and the Jinn would come together to produce the like of this Qur’an, they could not produce its like even though they exerted all and their strength in aiding one another.” Surah Al-Isra’a “The Israelites” 17:88

    “Or do they say that ‘he [Muhammed] forged it’.” Say, ‘Bring you then ten Surahs it, and call (for help) whomever you can, other than Allah, if you speak the truth!’.” Surah Hud “Prophet Hud” 11:13

    “And if you are all in doubt about what I have revealed to My Servant, bring a single chapter like it, and call your witnesses besides Allah if you are truthful.” Surah Al-Baqarah “The Heifer” 2:23

    To this day mankind has been unable to do so. And as proof that Allah Has Created all things...

    "Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth; in the alternation of the night and the day; in the sailing of the ships through the ocean for the profit of mankind; in the rain which Allah Sends down from the skies, and the life which He gives therewith to an earth that is dead; in the beasts of all kinds that He scatters through the earth; in the change of the winds, and the clouds which they Trail like their slaves between the sky and the earth;- (Here) indeed are Signs for a people that are wise." Surah Al-Baqarah "The Heifer" 2:164

Also…

    "Now have come to you, from your Lord, proofs (to open your eyes): if any will see, it will be for (the good of) his own soul; if any will be blind, it will be to his own (harm): I am not (here) to watch over your doings." Surah Al-An’aam "The Cattle" 6:104

    Mankind needs a revolution, a radical change in all aspects of his life. Islam as a spiritual, intellectual and political ideology is the vehicle that can provide mankind the means to re-connect with Allah's Creation so that he can re-connect with His Creator.

    The revolution that mankind needs is Islam, which by the Grace of Allah provides a Radical Change from his current declined thought process. Instead self-guided government and ever-changing societal rules and norms, philosophies, theories and policies, which have failed him, a thought process that correctly connects man with his environment and the universe, and gets him on the path of revived thought towards enlightened thought.

    Muslims around the globe are charged with the task of spreading Islam to Mankind. The Mu’mineen, the Muttaqun; wherever we are, whether in the lands of the Muslims or lands of the Kufar — as Islam has no borders — we are to spread the word of Islam, and invite humanity to the Deen of Allah. This is accomplished by following the Methodology taken by the last Prophet Allah sent to mankind, Prophet Muhammed (s.a.w.).

    “Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: They are the ones to attain felicity.” Surah Al i’Imran “The Family of Imran” 3:104


    As Allah is One, and the religion He has Given Mankind (“…This day have I perfected for you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion…" 5:3) Islam, the Deen of Allah does not require a mixing with other religions, a dilution, nor a “reformation” as so many inside and out of Islam claim.

    Sugar and water by itself is pure sugar and water. Mix the two and you have syrup. Islam stands on its own; there is no such thing as an “Islamic Democracy,” nor a “Democratic Islam.” You mix with Islam with any man-made philosophy, religion, man-made laws or system of government, you don't have Islam. You have something else. Allah has Given Mankind what he needs for his own salvation. As Islam is complete and pure in its entirety, it does not require that man be “born in sin,” and therefore does not require the sacrifice and blood of another human — Created by Allah —  for mankind to be forgiven for his sins.

    Once mankind re-connects with Allah's Creation, he will be blessed and be given Allah's Guidance and be provided the means to govern himself and society under the Rule of Allah and change his society for his own benefit where the whole of humanity has full human rights. Once mankind re-connects with His Creator, the ills that plaque man are thoroughly and completely eradicated.


    “O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).” Surah Al-Hujuraat “The Chambers” 49:13

    May Allah (s.w.t.) Guide us all, as surely from Him Who Created us, to Him we shall return.

What (not in Allah's Name) are we doing? 

   Some thoughts on Our Ummah's Condition...

   Since the recent bombings in Europe things "appear" to be quiet. We haven't heard any "this just in - breaking" news of ISIS, the war in Syria, or mass murders and kidnappings from Boko Haram. The Western technologically advanced news cycle is meticulous when it chooses what and when to release the propaganda they call news - biased on their behalf at best.

   Meanwhile some Muslims - if not sincerely preparing for Ramadhan in a few days - are sitting quietly in their homes, hoping they are not blamed for or Islam associated with the latest bombing; kidnapping; video beheading and ground battles fought in "Jihad."

   Understand that without a true and correct methodology applied and achieved toward an Islamic State Jihad does not and can not exist. Muslims fighting as a group in any given region where they remain dependent upon the same Kufar they are fighting against does not constitute "Jihad" nor an Islamic State.

   Here in amerika the Kufar and their system of government is on the verge of possibly electing a man who has filed for corporate bankruptcy four times. This is someone voters would trust to be in charge of an economy that is already 20 Trillion dollars in debt. Maybe he plans to take Corporate Amerika into bankruptcy and start over again.

  Muslims live in an amerikan society that allows every single law that Allah (s.w.t.) Has Forbidden; and gives rights to any person that wishes to marry (or not) another person of the same sex and adopt (or surrogate) a child in that so-called same sex union. Allah tells mankind how he was Created and who he is. This society and government, however, is struggling now with laws on just what is a man or woman and which one can enter into which bathroom on which ever day they feeling a certain kind of way.

   Muslims here in the US are either too busy trying to blend in: wearing amerikan flag hijabs; celebrating Prophet Muhammed's (s.a.w.), and everybody else's birthdays; participating in local and national politics when Allah (s.w.t.) Has Specifically Warned Muslims against this: (Al-Qur'an 3:28, 3:118; 5:51; 9:71).

   Despite these Clear Signs some Muslims are joining with all other faiths in the various celebratory holidays throughout the year, and in an effort to further inter-faith dialogue, promote theology of a so called "Islamic Democracy," (read Rand's Corporation's recent attempt to further divide Our Ummah: www.hizb-australia.org/2016/05/civil-democratic-islam-in-the-west-the-infamous-rand-report/), thinking that somehow, someway if we "work within the system," we could effect change for the better.

   On the flip side, some Muslims in Our Ummah are burying our heads in the sand, stating (sometimes vehemently) that "there is no politics in Islam!"

   Excuse me? Prophet Muhammed (s.a.w.) propagated Islam on political moves. He lived his life as Prophet and Messenger, father, husband; as statesman, politician and military leader. His letter to Heraclius (3:64 & Sahih Bukhari V6 Hadith No.75); his two Treaties at 'Aqabah, and later in the year 6 A.H. his Treaty at Hudaibiyah with the Quraysh that allowed the young Ummah to make its very first Hajj are reminders and examples of political maneuvering; all for the benefit of the Ummah. These events have not been erased from our Islamic history; some Muslims, however, have forgotten they happened. 

   As you wake up in the morning looking at yourself in the mirror after you've made your Wudhu; do you ask yourself "how can I effectively give Da'wah to the Kufar that states: 'Islam has the solution to what ails this society?'" Islam goes much further than these amerikan shores. Islam has no "borders," especially the ones set up by these various regimes around the globe. For the Ummah - as by our own misdeeds, arguing among ourselves about School of Thought, Sect, Methab, Manhaj, following a Sheik in the East vs. a Sheik in the West - all suffering from various degrees of western ideological thought, propaganda and effective false flags, we are caught in the mass propaganda that is Islamophobia.

  The Kufar has long effected and propagated this "fear" of Muslims and Islam when in reality, Our Ummah is suffering from "Ittaqu'llahphobia," a direct fear (or arrogance) of Fear Allah, and not acting upon 3:104 and beyond.

   Allah (s.w.t.) Sent Prophets and Messengers to people throughout mankind's history. All of the Prophets carried the same message: Allah is One, with no son (or daughter) or partner; and we should fear Allah as we will meet Allah on the day of judgement. Islam is easy; if we follow Allah's Laws and the Sunnah (Practice) of His Last Prophet and Messenger (s.a.w.). It is mankind himself; following his own nafs (desires) that make it hard.

   Muslims who are sleep-walking through their lifetime while above ground must not just wake up to the reality of what is actually going on and be only concerned with events in their local community (as some Muslims would have you believe), but be aware and look to take action with what concerns Our Ummah around the globe.

   At this same time Muslims who are aware and are taking action through various groups, our Da'wah must be sharpened, as we know the Kufar is constantly changing tactics, strategies and schemes all designed to further divert the minds and hearts of Our Ummah away from Allah's Qur'an and Rasul'Allah's Sunnah.

   To Rand Corp. and those like you, we are well aware of all your tactics and schemes; they are not new.
   You promote - and want Muslims to participate in - a system of government that has assassinated, brutally murdered, nuked, or otherwise eliminated over 30 million lives around the globe, and has empowered and financed political leaders around the globe at the "collateral damage" expense of not only citizens of those countries but members of your own military and civilians as well -- and yes, citizens of the U.S. your lives ARE expendable. All in the interest of "national security" and for the benefit of freedom and democracy as the so-called "greatest country in the world."
  You want Muslims to participate in a political system that not only spies on its "allies" but it's own citizens as well. It is a known fact that this government steals from and lies to its own citizens. It's now involved in the four-year cycle of "taking back" Amerika in a new direction.

   Meet the New Boss - same as the Old Boss - regardless of political party.

  WAKE UP MUSLIMS!!!

  Rand Corp = Shaitan = Rand Corp. Declined Thought in wicked devious fashion. You, we, Our Ummah is much better than this. We have a higher ideology. Don't follow this lizard's evil down their hole.

   The Mumineen believe in something greater than ourselves, greater than you, and all that mankind can see and cannot see. The Uncaused Cause of all that exists is Watching all; and as you plan, we plan, but understand this: As the Quraysh plotted and planned to assassinate Rasul'Allah (s.a.w.) and failed; so too will your plots, schemes, propaganda, false flags and plans fail to defeat Islam. Allah is the Greatest, Rand, not this government, and not you.

#MUSLIMSUNITE!!!

Worship of Symbols Garners Punishment Eternal




     Shaitan really got em goin' this time...

     Recall that after Allah The Exalted Created Adam (Mankind) and Iblis disobeyed

Allah's Command that Iblis bow down to Adam, Iblis (now Shaitan) announced his plan to

deceive and misguide mankind from the correct belief and worship of Allah. (Al-Qur'an

7:16,17). We could say that Shaitain has had some level of success, and although the battle

between good and evil has been waged since then, the Mumineen know that Allah 

Will Prevail on the Day of Judgement.

     Mankind's journey to that day, however; is filled with constant attacks on his Aqeedah.

Shaitan's latest attempt shows how humans, when losing someone so well-known around 

the world, resort to an overwhelming outpouring of emotions to the point of prayers 

and worship.

     I have watched for a few days now as the world stopped and congregated, laughed,

cried, partied, gave homage, paid tribute and celebrated the taking of the soul of one 

of Allah's Creation.

     Allah Reminds us that we should always be mindful of Death; every Soul shall taste

death, and that no man knows the hour of his death (55: 26, 27). Some He takes at a young

age, and some He allows to live a very long life to a point where that human knows little 

after possessing a wealth of knowledge.

     Mankind, if he is aware and has some knowledge of something greater than himself in

his life; has the ability to sensually perceive his Creator. Throughout Al-Qur'an Allah tells

mankind - as Nabi Ibrahim (as) did - to look upon the heavens and ponder as to the 

stars, the moon, the planets, the sun and comets; each as they follow their designated 

path; never colliding - unless Allah Orders them to do so. (35:27-28).

     Mankind, if he is not looking at his environment in the manner that his Creator

intended, begins to form his own thoughts, opinions and philosophies about his Creator. 

Man looks to man for that spiritual connection to his Creator, through pictures, various 

forms of art, words and music. A textual method, but not in the manner that Allah Had 

and Has Intended for Him to be perceived. Allah sent Messengers with Books: the Taurah; 

Psalms; Injeel (Gospel), and Al-Qur'an as guides for Mankind to know and understand 

his Creator.

     Allah through these books tells Mankind who He Is; and also tells Mankind about

himself. There is no mystery, question, controversy, nor doubt to Allah; as there is no 

question, controversy, nor doubt as to who Mankind is. Of course, when Shaitan 

misguides man to think that he is something other than what Allah Created; man 

thinks that either Allah is not who He says HE is; or mankind is something else.

     As Allah Has Created Man and Provided all that Mankind needs for his Existence - as

man can do nothing on his own - Allah, the Uncaused Cause (S 112) for all that Exists is the

Only One Worthy of Worship. (2:22; 21:32). All of the "inventions" or things that man has

made is not "new," as whatever Allah Has Willed to be Has already been Written.

     In his effort to connect to his Creator; Mankind; instead of looking at all of the obvious

signs around him throughout Creation; either looks to objects that he made or others made

like himself. These humans seemed to be endowed with special gifts that set them apart 

from all others in Creation; and so we raise these group of people or that person to 

a higher status than others almost to a point of worship.

     They're "brilliant," "genius," "extraordinary," "exceptional," "uncanny," "amazing," or

their craft evokes strong emotions among other humans. We start to revere them, honor 

them, shower them with money; gifts; awards; then build statues for generations to 

view - from athletes to politicians to conquerors; kings, queens, philosophers, 

doctors, judges, scientists, educators, rulers, musicians, sociopolitical/religious leaders. 

Then we turn their former residences into museums.

     Know and understand that it is Allah that has Given these gifts - in any manner or

matter they may be in whatever capacity - to all of His Creation. Mankind must be 

cognizant of this fact of his life; that anything man has made or built did not come from 

nothing. Any thought of an idea about a building; a rocket ship; a new mathematical 

equation; a cure for a deadly disease; a new mode of transportation or new mode of 

transmitting or transporting power and energy; crafting a "work of art," or 

writing award-winning articles; books; movie scripts or love songs - ALL knowledge 

and ability that mankind has was given to him by Allah.

     Shaitan, however, uses these same gifts against Mankind; to turn man away from the

Worship of Allah, to the point of arrogant rebellion and Shirk in Kufr (disbelief).

     Endowed with the knowledge of Allah, however; a correct Aqeedah can be acquired;

and correct action in the form of correct Worship can be achieved. Armed with a correct

Aqeedah and worship Mankind can take a stronger Battle to the Shaitan, and with Allah's

Help, achieve Jannah.

     The human in us wants those we love or revere to "Rest in Peace;" truly only Allah

Knows the condition in the grave of the Soul He Has Claimed.

     Oh Mumineen! The time to pray for our spouses, relatives close and distant; loved

ones, anyone, is while they are alive where they can hear the message of "Laa illaha 

Illa-Laah."

     When the Angel of Death comes to claim our Souls; our Book of Deeds is closed. 

When we are buried and everyone has said their "last good-byes" at our graves;  

whatever deeds we have done in this life for the worship of other than Allah will manifest 

itself in our grave. Our Books of Deeds and our bodies will testify either on our behalf or 

against us.

CONCEPTS

   The Kufar's entire declined thought process needs radical change. A daunting task, but in following the correct Methodology of the Prophet (s.a.w.) this can and will be achieved.

    As Da'wah Carriers we must be specific and sharp in our criticisms of the Kufar in the errors of his ways, but positively focused in providing him the knowledge and the tools to not only revive his thought process, but modify his behavior in a manner of enlightened action for the benefit for those around him and society as a whole.

    So the following applies to everyone, Da'wah Carriers included: "Allah does not change the circumstances of any people until they have changed what is within themselves."
    Surah Ar-Rad:11

...And don't go wishing them 'Merry Christmas' either

   Most Christians across the globe are celebrating Prophet Isa's (a.s.) birth today; not realizing that 1) “Jesus” was not born on this day, 2) Jesus never celebrated his birthday, and 3) there are several verses in the Bible that prohibit this pagan practice.
   As Muslims we do not refer to the Bible when in debate or discussion about Isa from the Islamic perspective. We refer to verses such as Surah At Tauba v30; or Al-Maida v116-118. For the Mu'mineen, this is enough; Isa (a.s.) never claimed to be the son of God; and never told his Apostles or anyone to worship him (“I and the Father are one” is invalid).
   So where did this day come from?
   Pagan Practices: In ancient times the winter solstice was celebrated as the birthday of Mithras, an ancient Persian god, and of Sol Invictus, the 'unconquered' sun god. Sir James George Frazier points out in his well-researched book, The Golden Bough, that pagan practices rivaled those of the Christians because of its solemn rituals with aspirations toward obtaining moral purity and immortality. The Julian Calendar, however, celebrated the solstice on Jan. 6, the birthday of Osiris. To compensate, the Christians began incorporating these pagan practices into their religion.
   The Romans recognized Dec. 25 as the Nativity of the Sun. Celebrants in those ancient times worshiped in shrines as the new, “virgin” Unconquered Sun was “born.”
The Egyptians represented this new-born sun with the image of an infant which they brought forth and exhibited to his worshippers; the Semites in the Middle East commemorated this day as the birth of the Goddess Heavenly Virgin.
   Luke 2:1 states that Caesar took census of the known world, not during the winter months; Luke 2:6-8 states the shepherds watched their flocks at night, also not during the winter months. Leviticus 23:34-36 mentions the Feast of Tabernacles, during which time Joseph (a.s.) and Mary (r.a.a.) would have traveled during warmer climes.
   Jesus warned his followers in Mark 7:6-9; Matthew 5:17-19; and Deuteronomy 12:30-32 of hypocrites; upholding Allah's Law and the correct worship of Allah.
   Since the fourth century Christians have basically flipped the script, substituting the birth of the new “sun,” for the birth of Jesus to avoid being associated with paganism. Pope Leo The Great rebuked the belief that Christians celebrated the birth of this unconquered sun but rather celebrated this day as the nativity of Christ.
   For the Mu'mineen we have the Sunnah of Rasul'Allah to follow in this Hadith: The Prophet (s.a.w.) has said: “Do not over praise me as the Christians over-praised the son of Mary. I am His slave so say: 'Allah's slave and messenger'.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
As Isa (a.s.) foretold of the coming of Prophet Muhammed as the Seal of all Prophets, ask the Christian: What Would Jesus Do?

A Reminder for Muslims: Islam Does Not Celebrate Thanksgiving

   Any act of worship, praying, food feasting or otherwise that gives “Thanks” to any other than Allah (s.w.t.) places you, My Brother and Sister, outside the fold of Islam. Plain and simple your actions, when you go (because we know you get invited), puts you in the company of idolaters, and we know what Allah tells mankind about that. It is outside the Ideology that is Islam; its belief and practices; and the origins of where this celebratory day is neatly tucked away, and not in the history books in front of young children today.

     A "history" lesson today and for all time...

   As the first British “Pilgrims” landed on the shores of Massachusetts in 1614, they carried with them small pox, which the native Wampanoag promptly caught, and died.

   “In mid-winter 1620 the English ship Mayflower landed on the North American coast, delivering 102 exiles. The original native people of this stretch of shoreline had already been killed off. In 1614 a British expedition had landed there. When they left they took 24 Indians as slaves and left smallpox behind. Three years of plague wiped out between 90 and 96 per cent of the inhabitants of the coast, destroying most villages completely.” - Michael Ely, “Native blood: the truth behind the myth of Thanksgiving Day.”

   The English thought the natives' death was “divine intervention”, and began to lay “claim” to the land that had been vacated by the disease. The so-called “Puritans” themselves were exiled from England, but saw this religious colony as a model of an ideology that they believed all of Europe should adopt.

   The early Colonists had misinterpreted a verse in the Bible from Psalms, “2:8. “Ask of me, and I shall give thee, the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession,” to summarily declare god their real estate agent on this continent, and later overseas as Boers seized South Africa and the Zionists seized Palestine.

   Slavery, disease and war against the natives became the order of the day, of the time, of the era. Among many other instances, at Pequot village on the Mystic River, the Puritan Colonists' implementation of their “divine” rule proceeded to trade, enslave and massacre and burn the natives alive and take control of the land, all under the “guidance” and “sufficient light from the word of God for our proceedings.”

   It was slavery of the Native American during the 1630's that the British exploited first, before the exponential slave trade of Africans began. How many of us knew this bit of “his” story that is not taught in US schools?

   Islam as Ideology takes advantage of no man, tribe, or nation. It does not trade, enslave, massacre nor war against any person, people, or nation. If illness is spread Muslims are ordered to stay among the sick to treat, cure and help prevent and not spread the disease. Masonic President George Washington called for a national celebration of the day as he forged a capitalist society that took advantage of anyone who was not European. Years later Abraham Lincoln made the day a legal holiday as he sent troops to suppress the Sioux in Minnesota.

   As for Al-Qur'an being misinterpreted by non-Muslims in prohibiting Muslims from befriending them, Allah (s.w.t.) says, “As for such [of the unbelievers] as do not fight against you on account of [your] faith, and neither drive you forth from your homelands, God does not forbid you to show them kindness and to behave towards them with full equity: for, verily, God loves those who act equitably. God only forbids you to turn in friendship towards such as fight against you because of [your] faith, and drive you forth from your homelands, or aid [others] in driving you forth: and as for those [from among you] who turn towards them in friendship; it is they, they who are truly wrongdoers!" (Al Qur'an 60:8,9).

   Muslims give “thanks” to Allah every single moment of our lives, from the moment we go to sleep to when we recite the Du'aa upon wakening; to every action throughout our day. There is some small prayer we can recite praising Our Creator for everything we do, for just being alive. Allah Provides, Islam Guides, Prophet Muhammed (s.a.w.) shows us how. Muslims have no need for “Thanksgiving” once a year when we give thanks to Allah every day.

    What began as a "religious" celebration has transformed into the national and cultural norm. Everyone click on the following link. Educate yourselves on the real story behind “Thanksgiving,” and not “his” story. Muslims when you do go, ask your non-Muslim family and friends do they really know what happened back then.


    We will get invited; some of us will go; and some of us won't go to such "dinners." If we do, I feel it should be with a heavy heart. Our true "family" is our family of believers. As Muslims we have Allah and His Deen of Islam to follow:

    "If you disbelieve - indeed, Allah is Free from need of you. And He does not approve for His servants disbelief. And if you are grateful, He approves it for you; and no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. Then to your Lord is your return, and He will inform you about what you used to do. Indeed, He is Knowing of that within the breasts." (Al-Qur'an 39:7)

    And

    "...This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion..." (Al-Qur'an 5:3)

     Let us remind ourselves to Fear Allah first, Seek His Forgiveness, and seek Allah's Guidance as we provide and try to give Da'wah to Allah, the Sunnah of Rasul'Allah and, the Deen of Islam.

An Intellectual, Political, and Spiritual Ideology

23 Ramadhan, 1434

     Muslims' inability to think for themselves contributed to the fall of the Khilafah. They had help; during the “Colonialists'”systematic removal of the Khilafah, the Colonialists, among a myriad of tactics, “moved” Allah and all Islamic thought to Fridays only. Midweek Muslims were to assimilate themselves and participate in the prevalent society wherever they lived; encourage inter-faith dialogue, and “rest” on Sunday. As any thought of Islamic revival was removed; the Colonialists left no stone unturned and implemented curricula, culture, philosophy, people, history and lifestyle to ensure that the Muslim society and environment in their homelands was non-Islamic; an environment which inundated the Muslim Mind with any and all other ideas and methods other than Islam. The Colonialists changed the Muslim Mind and taught him to think “western” instead of Islamic.
      As a result, since before 1924 any and all efforts to revive and enlighten the Muslim Ummah have failed, simply because the Muslim has been and is still attempting to revive the Ummah based on western thought, western philosophy, western culture, instead of drawing upon the example given to our Ummah by Prophet Muhammed (s.a.w.).
      Today Muslims in Syria are begging Secretary of State John Kerry for weapons. Excuse me, but doesn't verse five of Al-Fatihah specifically say, “You do we worship and Thine Aid we seek(?)” Why are Muslims asking any man for help? Read 2:107. Meanwhile Muslims in Egypt have proclaimed they are ready to “die for Democracy!” That statement repulsed me when I read it a few days ago; I thought to myself that Muslims had reached rock bottom. Further thought revealed that Muslims had already reached “rock bottom” once the Khilafah fell nearly 100 years ago; today Muslims – with the Kufar's help – continue to kill Muslims, in Egypt over 100 last week, with western weapons.
      Our Fard Khifayyah now is to regain the tools for the Muslim Mind to begin bonding as individuals and groups; to begin having an effect on local society to effect radical change breaking across all western imposed borders, barriers and gaps; in effect to impose our own Islamic Idea and correct method to an enlightened Revival.
