RESPONDING TO GAZZA PDF Print E-mail

27 Ramadaan 1435

Someone rewrote the Torah to declare that the Holy Land extends from the River of Egypt (i.e., the Nile) to the River Euphrates. This is false! Nabī Ibrahīm (Prophet Abraham) ('alaihi al-Salām) had to migrate from Babylon and travel a long distance in order to reach the Holy Land. Yet Babylon is included within the land falsely designated in the Torah as the Holy Land. Nabī Mūsa (Prophet Moses) ('alaihi al-Salām) also died in Sinai without ever having entered the Holy Land. And so, Sinai is not a part of the Holy Land. Yet Sinai is included in the land falsely designated in the Torah as the Holy Land.

The imposter State of Israel - imposter because it is not the Holy Israel of Nabī Dāūd (Prophet David) and Nabī Sulaimān (Prophet Soloman) ('alaihim al-Salām) - recognizes Gazza, as well as several other territories now populated by Arabs, to be a part of the Holy Land. The majority Israeli view is that those lands belong to the Israelite people since they are a part of the Holy Land, and that Israelites have a right to get rid of the Arabs now resident in their land.

The above is the briefest explanation possible for Israel's persistent barbaric wars designed to achieve the ethnic cleansing of Gazza so that the Israelites can recover their Gazza.

Is the Sunni Caliphate really restored in Iraq? PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 04 Ramadaan 1435

A lamp provides light which allows us to see.alt

We can walk in a particular direction, for example, when we have a light with which to see.

Without the lamp, and without the light which it provides, we live in darkness, and hence, cannot see.

Most of mankind are today living in darkness and hence, although they have eyes, they yet cannot see. They live in darkness because there is no light from Allah in their hearts

What price do they pay for their blindness?

Allah Most Wise declared in the blessed Qur’an that He has adorned the lowest sky with ‘lamps’:

 

وَلَقَدْ زَيَّنَّا السَّمَاء الدُّنْيَا بِمَصَابِيح........َ

And, indeed, We have adorned the skies nearest to the earth with lamps . . .

(Qur’an, al-Mulk, 67:5)

For those (and only those) who have the capacity to discover the relationships that exist between the stars, do the stars function as ‘lamps’ permitting ships for example, to chart a course in the vast expanse of the oceans of the world.

Similarly, only those who have the spiritual insight with which to ‘connect dots’ in history, will be able to read and understand events that are now mysteriously unfolding on the stage of the world. Those unable to do so will invariably respond to an articulation of such understanding with the intellectually tame and stereotyped cry of “conspiracy theory”. They will pay a price for their blindness and their incapacity to penetrate the explanation that the Qur’an provides of the reality of the world today, and for ignoring the several warning in the Qur’an, as well as concrete evidence in the Sīrah, of Jewish conspiracies against Islam and Muslims.

Even the greatest of secular political scientists today are still incapable of ‘connecting dots’ from the emergence of Pax Britannica to its replacement by Pax Americana, in order to anticipate the imminent culmination of that mysterious process with a Pax Judaica that will witness the Jewish State of Israel inheriting the mantle of ruling State in the world. We connected those dots more than 12 years ago when we published our best-selling book on Islamic eschatology entitled ‘Jerusalem in the Qur’an’.

Secular scholarship is similarly incapable of connecting the dots to discover the relationship of that mysterious 3-staged political process with the equally mysterious removal of real money from the market, and its replacement, around the world, with bogus, fraudulent and utterly Harām paper, plastic and electronic money. We connected those monetary dots in our booklet (also on Islamic eschatology) entitled ‘The Gold Dinar and Silver Dirham – Islam and the Future of Money’.

There are many more dots that must be connected if we are to fully penetrate and understand the messianic reality of the world today.

When a people cannot themselves see, there will always be those who would gleefully exploit the opportunity to put a chain around their necks, weapons in their hands and money in their pockets, in order to lead them to establish such absurdities as a bogus Islamic Caliphate and to recognize and embrace a false and bogus Imām al-Mahdi.

That is precisely what is now emerging in Iraq.

Срочное сообщение для татар, живущих в Крыму - Russian Translation PDF Print E-mail
Islam and Politics
Written by Imran Nazar Hosein   
Friday, 12 Jamadil Awal 1435

 

Ассаляму алейкум всем моим татарским братьям и сестрам в Исламе, живущим в Крыму.

Для вас сейчас наступил самый критический момент в истории.

Большевицкая революция 1917 года, принесшая коммунизм и безжалостный СССР, была спланирована и осуществлена русскими евреями-сионастами, принадлежащими к Гог и Магог.

Когда в 1944 году Сталин приказал несправедливо депортировать вас из родной Крымской земли в Сибирь и другие места, это были Гог и Магог, ответственные за тот этнический геноцид, а не русские.

Россия – это Рум, упомянутый в Коране в суре ар-Рум. Русская православная церковь также сильно пострадала от жестокого СССР.

После распада коммунизма и СССР, и после вашего возвращения в Крым, вы столкнулись со многими трудностями возврата вашего наследственного имущества, которое было оставлено во время депортации Сталиным.

Но сейчас для вас наступила возможность всей вашей жизни. Шанс, который больше не будет предоставлен. Вы имеете возможность в это воскресение проголосовать на референдуме в поддержку союза Крыма и России. Я призываю вас проголосовать на референдуме в поддержку этого союза. Если вы это сделаете, по всей вероятности, Россия и российское правительство, которые сейчас возвращаются к православному христианству (т.е. Рум, упомянутый в Коране), ответят положительно и с благодарностью и проследят, чтобы вы восстановили ваше наследственное имущество и продолжили жить в Крыму свободно и на правах, которые необходимы мусульманам для соблюдения веры в Аллаха и Его Посланника (мир ему и благословение Аллаха).

Пророк Мухаммад (мир ему и благословение Аллаха) предсказал, что мусульмане заключат союз с Румом в Последнюю Эпоху (Ахиру Заман), и для меня очевидно, что сейчас татарские мусульмане играют историческую роль в осуществлении этого пророчества.

С любовью,

Ваш брат,

Имран Н. Хосейн.

 

 
URGENT MESSAGE TO THE TATAR MUSLIMS RESIDENT IN CRIMEA PDF Print E-mail
Islam and Politics
Written by Imran Nazar Hosein   
Thursday, 11 Jamadil Awal 1435

 

Assalaamu ‘alaikum to you all, my Tatar brothers and sisters in Islam there in Crimea!

I write to you to advise you that your most critical moment in history has arrived.

The Bolshevic revolution of 1917, which delivered communism and the ruthless Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), was planned and executed by Russian Zionist Jews who belonged to Gog and Magog.

When Stalin ordered in 1944 your unjust deportation out of your ancestral Crimean homeland to Siberia and elsewhere, it was Gog and Magog who were responsible for that ethnic genocide – and not the Russian people.

Russia is Rūm of the Qur’an, mentioned in Suratu Rūm. The Russian Orthodox Church also suffered tremendously from the ruthless USSR.

Since the collapse of communism and of the USSR, and since your return to Crimea, you have faced serious difficulties in recovering your ancestral properties which were left behind when you were deported by Stalin.

You now have an opportunity of a lifetime. This opportunity will not recur. You will have an opportunity this Sunday to vote in a referendum for Crimean union with Russia. I urge you to vote in favor of that union with Russia. If you do so, it is most likely that Russia and the Russian government, who are now returning to Orthodox Christianity (i.e., Rūm of the Qur’an), would respond positively and gratefully to ensure that you recover your ancestral properties and that you continue to reside in Crimea with the freedom and rights that Muslims need in order to be faithful to Allah and His Messenger (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam).

Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) prophesied that Muslims will make an alliance with Rūm in Akhir al-Zamān, and it appears to me that Tatar Muslims now have a historic role to play in the fulfillment of that prophesy.

With love,

Your brother,

Imran N. Hosein

 

 
ISLAM, THE PETRO-DOLLAR AND BEYOND PDF Print E-mail
Islam and Usury
Written by Imran Nazar Hosein   
Friday, 16 Muharram 1434

Our conference must ensure that we explain issues relating to ‘money’ in a manner that can be readily understood, not just by those present in this gathering here in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, but also by the hapless multitudes around the world who know little or nothing of this subject, and who look to us for guidance; hence an imperative of ensuring both simplicity and clarity, while avoiding the use of technical jargon. I avoid it to such an extent that those present in this audience will not hear even the words ‘fiat money’ in my presentation.alt

We must, however, provide an adequate explanation of the term ‘Petro-dollar’, since our view is that it is symbolically present in a Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah Most High be upon him) on which this paper is based. We must reveal the staggering role that it has played and still plays, in sustaining today’s unjust monetary system, as well as the equally unjust international banking system. Both the international monetary system and the international banking system are absolutely unique phenomena in human economic and monetary history. In other words no one in history has ever experienced the unique injustice and oppression that mankind now experiences in the worlds of money and banking. This, perhaps, explains the strange ignorance of the reality of modern money and banking.
Our view is that petro-money has an even more sinister role to play in the new monetary system that will emerge to replace the present one, consequent upon the imminent demise of the US dollar - but more about that later.

URGENT STATEMENT PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 08 Sha'ban 1433

We are about to witness what we long anticipated, to wit: a Turkish-led NATO attack on Syria to remove the present Syrian regime and replace it, Libyan-style, with another so-called Islamic regime. How else will Israel be able to claim that a ‘rising Islam’ now menaces that country, and that Israel is being surrounded by that menacing Islam and must wage pre-emptive war in order to survive? How else will Israel be able to replace USA as the next ruling State in the world unless she wages great wars – particularly against her Arab neighbors who surround the Zionist State?

Turkey’s pro-NATO and hence pro-Zionist Government seems about to commit the ultimate act of foolishness in claiming the shooting-down of a Turkish warplane by Syria as causus bellum that justifies a Turkish military invasion of Syria. Such a Turkish military invasion of Syria would of course, have nothing to do with avenging the loss of an airplane and two pilots. Rather, it would have nothing less than Syrian regime-change as its primary objective.

That military adventure would be an act of supreme foolishness for the following reasons:

  1. Syria has been on a high alert for some time now expecting external intervention (Libyan-style) in support of a Zionist-engineered armed insurrection that has so far failed to take-over the country. A Turkish warplane that enters into Syrian airspace cannot expect, in such circumstances, to be treated as an innocent intruder. 
  2. If Russia and China respond to a Turkish military invasion of Syria by coming to the support of that country, that will eventually provoke the Malhama (great war) prophesied by Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam). That Malhama will be so great that it will make the first and second world-wars look like a fight over peanuts.
  3. The Turkish government should remember that the Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) also prophesied that the Malhama or great war will lead to the conquest of Constantinople. It should not take Turkish Muslims long to realize that the 1453 conquest of Constantinople by Sultan Muhammad Fatih had nothing to do with the prophecy.  Turkish Muslims will then wake up to the monstrous betrayal of their pro-Zionist government and prepare for the civil war that will fulfill the prophecy.  
  4. Thus a Turkish military invasion of Syria will eventually lead to Turkish civil war and to the liberation of the city of Constantinople from NATO’s venomous control.
  5. Since Russia will inevitably enter in the war in defense of Syria, the Turkish military invasion of that country will lead to yet another prophecy of Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) being fulfilled, to wit: “that you (Muslims) will make an alliance with Rum (pronounced as ‘room’).” Rum in the Qur’an referred to the Eastern Christian Byzantine Empire. But after Constantinople was conquered in 1453, the capital city of Rum eventually became Moscow.

This statement is issued to so guide Muslims that they may not be brainwashed by Protestant Islam’s Zionist Jihad, and by the inevitable CNN/Al-Jazeerah-led propaganda barrage that will now inundate mankind.

Madinah 1343(H): Out Of Dajjal’s Ottoman Frying Pan and into Dajjal’s Saudi­-Wahhabi Fire
 
 
In just another 10 years from now in the month of Rabi al­Thani 1443 the world of Islam will mark the 100th anniversary of the transfer of power in Makkah from the Ottoman Turks to the Arab Sultan ‘Abd al­’Aziz Ibn Saud. Troops loyal to the Sultan of Najd conquered Makkah in the month of Rabi al­Thani 1343 (i.e., October 30th 1924 in Pope Gregory’s western Christian Catholic calendar) in consequence of which ‘Abd al­’Aziz eventually proclaimed himself Sultan of Najd and King of Hejaz.
 
In 10 years from now it will also be a hundred years since Makkah and Madinah were taken out of Dajjal’s Ottoman frying pan only to enter into Dajjal’s Saudi­-Wahhabi fire. Let there be no doubt in the reader’s mind that after having shamelessly aligned Saudi Arabia with the Zionist Anglo­American Judeo­Christian alliance for the longest while, Saudi Arabia’s leaders have now made that State a strategic ally of the Zionist State of Israel. And hence it is clear that they work for al­ Masih al ­Dajjal, i.e., Dajjal the false Messiah or Anti­-Christ. This is perhaps the implication of the vision in which Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) saw Dajjal making Tawaf around the Ka’aba. There is also considerable evidence that the Ottomans acted, consciously or unconsciously, on Dajjal’s behalf by rendering considerable assistance to western Christianity. They did so by repeatedly plunging a vicious and venomous knife for some 600 years into the heart of its rival, i.e. eastern Christianity or Rum. This was in accord with Dajjal’s agenda since it was western Christians who made an alliance with Jews, and it is that alliance which brought Israel into being. Rum never made such an alliance with the Jews! The predictable result was intense hatred for Islam and hostility towards Muslims on the part of those in Rum who suffered so unjustly and for so long a period of time. Both the Ottoman State, as well as Saudi Arabia, mysteriously and wickedly disregarded the prophecy of the blessed Prophet that Muslims will make an End­Time alliance with eastern Christianity or Rum. Hence both the Ottomans as well as the Saudi­-Wahhabis rendered strategic assistance to Dajjal.
 
The Ottoman Empire conquered and occupied much of the Arab world – including the Hejaz – and succeeded in transferring the capital of the Khilafah (Caliphate) – for the first time ever – out of the Arab world to the former Christian Byzantine city of Constantinople in Euro­Asia. The Ottomans hardly had any credentials to rule over the heart­land of Islam. Yet, in accordance with Dajjal’s plan, they did so for more than 400 years until a European­engineered Arab Spring dismantled Ottoman rule, destroyed the institution of the Khilafah, and installed pro­western rulers over the Arabs (including the Hijaz). The destruction of the Khilafah and transfer of power to pro­western Arab rulers paved the way for a State of Israel to be successfully established in a Holy Land that was located in the very heart of the Arab world. Without 400 years of imperial Ottoman rule over the Arabs, followed by that ‘Arab Spring’, the Zionist State of Israel could never have been established. Sharif al-­Husain, the Ottoman­ appointed Arab Sharif of Makkah, did claim the Khilafah for himself, in response to the Turkish abolition of the Khilafah, but it was too late for an Arab Khilafah to be restored. Britain used ‘Abd al­’Aziz Ibn Saud to make short work of that short­lived Arab Khilafah and to then ensure that the Khilafah of Islam could never be restored so long as the Saudi­Wahhabis controlled the Hejaz. Husain had to flee, and the subsequent Saudi­Wahhabi rule over the Hejaz ensured (from a British view) that the Khilafah remained permanently buried – never to be restored (see my book entitled ‘The Caliphate the Hijaz and the Saudi­Wahhabi Nation­State’ on my website: http://imranhosein.org/books/126-the-caliphate-the-hijaz-and-the-saudi-wahabi-nation-state.html

Wednesday, 10 Jamadil Akhir 1433


سَنُرِيهِمْ آيَاتِنَا فِي الْآفَاقِ وَفِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَتَّى يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ أَوَلَمْ يَكْفِ بِرَبِّكَ أَنَّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ شَهِيدٌ

“In time We shall make them fully understand Our messages (through what they perceive) in the utmost horizons (for example in the scientific examination of the material universe) and within them­selves (for example in events that will unfold in the process of history) so that it will become clear unto them that this (Qur’ān) is indeed the truth. (Still) is it not enough (for them to know) that thy Lord-God is witness unto everything?

(Qur’ān, Fussilāt, 41:53)

Egypt is in a state of transition and it behoves Egyptians – Christians as well as Muslims – to seek to know the destination to which political change is taking them. Coptic Christians believe that Egypt, the land to which Nabi ‘Isa and his mother Mariam (‘alaihima al-Salām) were brought when they fled the Holy Land, has a special eschatological role to play when Nabi ‘Isa is to return. Muslims share with Christians the belief in that momentous messianic return with which history will end.  Will Egyptian Muslims and Coptic Christians now seek to build a common ground with which to jointly resist those who are hell-bent on attacking not only Iran and Pakistan, but also Egypt as well? Egyptian Muslims must be reminded of the blessed Prophet’s advice regarding Muslim-Christian relations in Egypt:

(إذا فُتِحَتْ مصرُ فاستوصُوا بالقِبْطِ خيرا فإن لهم ذِمَّةً ورَحِما. (البغوى، والطبرانى، والحاكم عن كعب بن مالك

“When you conquer Egypt be good to the Coptic (Christians) for they are your kith and kin.”(al-Baghawy, al-Tabarani, al-Hakim as narrated by K’ab bin Malik)

Both Islamic as well as Christian scholarship in Egypt should seek to discern the direction in which history is moving so that they can both pursue an effort for penetrating and understanding the reality which now confronts them.

This essay is presented to facilitate that effort.

Madinah 1343 (h): out of Dajjāl’s frying-pan and into Dajjāl’s Saudi-Wahhābi fire

In just another 10 years from now in the month of Rabīal-Thāni 1443 the world of Islam will mark the 100th anniversary of the transfer of power in Makkah from the Ottoman Turks to the Arab Sultān ‘Abd al-‘Azīz Ibn Saūd. Troops loyal to the Sultan of Najd conquered Makkah in the month of Rabī al-Thāni 1343 (i.e., October 30th 1924 in Pope Gregory’s western Christian Catholic calendar) in consequence of which ‘Abd al-‘Azīz eventually proclaimed himself Sultān of Najd and King of Hejāz.

In 10 years from now it will also be a hundred years since Makkah and Madinah were taken out of Dajjāl’s Ottoman frying pan only to enter into Dajjāl’s Saudi-Wahhabi fire. Let there be no doubt in the reader’s mind that after having shamelessly aligned Saudi Arabia with the Zionist Anglo-American Judeo-Christian alliance for the longest while, Saudi Arabia’s leaders have now made that State a strategic ally of the Zionist State of Israel. And hence it is clear that they work for al-Masīh al-Dajjāl, i.e., Dajjāl the false Messiah or Anti-Christ. This is perhaps the implication of the vision in which Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) saw Dajjāl making Tawāf around the Ka’aba. There is also considerable evidence that the Ottomans acted, consciously or unconsciously, on Dajjāl’s behalf by rendering considerable assistance to western Christianity. They did so by repeatedly plunging a vicious and venomous knife for some 600 years into the heart of its rival, i.e. eastern Christianity or Rūm. This was in accord with Dajjāl’s agenda since it was western Christians who made an alliance with Jews, and it is that alliance which brought Israel into being. Rūm never made such an alliance with the Jews!

The predictable result was intense hatred for Islam and hostility towards Muslims on the part of those in Rūm who suffered so unjustly and for so long a period of time.

Both the Ottoman State, as well as Saudi Arabia, mysteriously and wickedly disregarded the prophecy of the blessed Prophet that Muslims will make an End-Time alliance with eastern Christianity or Rūm. Hence both the Ottomans as well as the Saudi-Wahhabis rendered strategic assistance to Dajjāl.

The Ottoman Empire conquered and occupied much of the Arab world – including the Hejāz – and succeeded in transferring the capital of the Khilāfah (Caliphate) – for the first time ever -  out of the Arab world to the former Christian Byzantine city of Constantinople in Euro-Asia. The Ottomans hardly had any credentials to rule over the heart-land of Islam. Yet, in accordance with Dajjāl’s plan, they did so for more than 400 years until a European-engineered Arab Spring dismantled Ottoman rule, destroyed the institution of the Khilāfah, and installed pro-western rulers over the Arabs (including the Hijāz). The destruction of the Khilāfah and transfer of power to pro-western Arab rulers paved the way for a State of Israel to be successfully established in a Holy Land that was located in the very heart of the Arab world. Without 400 years of imperial Ottoman rule over the Arabs, followed by that ‘Arab Spring’, the Zionist State of Israel could never have been established.

Sharīf al-Husain, the Ottoman-appointed Arab Sharīf of Makkah, did claim the Khilāfah for himself, in response to the Turkish abolition of the Khilāfah, but it was too late for an Arab Khilāfah to be restored. Britain used ‘Abd al-‘Aziz Ibn Saud to make short work of that short-lived Arab Khilāfah and to then ensure that the Khilāfah of Islam could never be restored so long as the Saudi-Wahhabis controlled the Hejāz. Husain had to flee, and the subsequent Saudi-Wahhabi rule over the Hejāz ensured (from a British view) that the Khilāfah remained permanently buried – never to be restored (see my book entitled ‘The Caliphate the Hijāz and the Saudi-Wahhabi Nation-State’ on my website:  http://www.imranhosein.org/books/126-the-caliphate-the-hijaz-and-the-saudi-wahabi-nation-state.html.

For just over 400 years of Ottoman rule Makkah and Madinah remained gloriously restricted and cleverly suppressed as places of grand annual pilgrimages, without even a hint of these now-remote cities playing any other role in Islamic affairs. However when the Saudi-Wahhabis took over the Haramain al-Sharifain they launched a sinister effort to exploit the Hajj of 1344 to gain political and religious legitimacy in the world of Islam for their rule over the Hejāz and the Haramain. The effort failed. They then proceeded to exploit the city of the Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) for propagating an Islamic creed with a one-eyed epistemology that robbed Arab Islamic scholarship of spiritual insight (firāsah al-mu’min).  Madinah became a university town with an agenda of refashioning both Arab and non-Arab Islamic thought in such wise that scholars could ensure that the purest expression of Islam would prevail in Madinah. Instead, that ‘purest’ expression of Saudi Islam produced Islamic scholars who could no longer distinguish between appearance and reality in matters pertaining to Dajjāl. As a consequence Saudi Arabia could bury the Khilāfah and continue to maintain fraternal ties with the Zionist West with no significant scholarly religious opposition. In fact, University scholars and students who dared to challenge the Saudi-Wahhabi agenda that has now culminated in secret alliance with Israel, could even lose their heads.

 

Jerusalem moves to center-stage

During these more than six centuries while Madinah remained a back-water town, and subsequently became a mournfully silent one-eyed university town, a Judeo-Christian Anglo-American alliance (which nurtured the Zionist Movement from its very birth) moved incrementally and successfully to take Jerusalem to center-stage in world affairs. Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) prophesied as much when he said:

عَنْ مُعَاذِ بْنِ جَبَلٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عُمْرَانُ بَيْتِ الْمَقْدِسِ خَرَابُ يَثْرِبَ وَخَرَابُ يَثْرِبَ خُرُوجُ الْمَلْحَمَةِ وَخُرُوجُ الْمَلْحَمَةِ فَتْحُ قُسْطَنْطِينِيَّةَ وَفَتْحُ الْقُسْطَنْطِينِيَّةِ خُرُوجُ الدَّجَّالِ ثُمَّ ضَرَبَ بِيَدِهِ عَلَى فَخِذِ الَّذِي حَدَّثَهُ أَوْ مَنْكِبِهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ إِنَّ هَذَا لَحَقٌّ كَمَا أَنَّكَ هَاهُنَا أَوْ كَمَا أَنَّكَ قَاعِدٌ يَعْنِي مُعَاذَ بْنَ جَبَلٍ . (سنن أبي داود)

Narrated Mu'adh ibn Jabal: The Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said: The flourishing state of Jerusalem will be when Yathrib (i.e., the city of Madinah) will be desolate; the desolate state of Yathrib will be when the great war comes; the outbreak of the great war will be (followed by) the conquest of Constantinople; and the conquest of Constantinople will be (followed by) Dajjāl’s (Antichrist) coming forth (i.e., appearing or emerging). He (the Prophet) then he tapped with his hand the thigh or the shoulder of the one to whom he was talking and said: This is certainly true like you are (sitting) here (he meant Mu'aadh ibn Jabal).

(Sunan Abī Daūd)

Great wars will soon lead to the conquest of Constantinople

This essay presents a viewpoint that we are now located at that moment in time when Jerusalem is flourishing while Madinah, in comparison to Jerusalem, is in a state of silent mournful desolation - playing absolutely no role whatsoever in the affairs of either the world of Islam or the world at large. If this viewpoint is correct, then the implication would be that we can now expect great wars prophesied in the above Hadīth to soon commence. This writer expects those wars to commence within the next few months of the publication of this essay. Those wars will eventually provoke civil war in Turkey which, in turn, will result in the prophesied End-Time conquest of Constantinople in contra-distinction to the barbarous Ottoman conquest of the city that was disgraceful and an embarrassment to Islam. It is only after the coming Islamic conquest of Constantinople, at which time the Cathedral of Hagia Sophia will be returned to the Eastern Christianity with an apology and the city will recover the name of Constantinople, it is only then that ‘a day like a week’ will end (see Jerusalem in the Qur’an) and Dajjāl will appear in person while attempting to rule the world from Jerusalem (see above Hadīth).

It is difficult to anticipate how the Turkish civil war will take place. But it entirely possible that a Turkish military adventure into Syria to bring about such regime change as would advance the Zionist agenda, could provoke the Turkish Muslims to commence the effort to free Turkey from NATO’s venomous embrace. That effort can be assisted by Arab fighters flocking to Turkey from all over the Arab world.  The world can also witness fighters flowing into Turkey from Albania, Bosnia, Azerbaijan and other neighboring territories.

There are many who would argue that the prophecy concerning the conquest of Constantinople has already been fulfilled, and hence it is necessary for us to address the subject at some length.

Has the conquest of Constantinople already occurred?

The blessed Prophet was full of praise for the army that would accomplish that conquest, and for the Amīr who would command that army:

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : لتفتحن القسطنطينية فلنعم الأمير أميرها ولنعم الجيش ذلك الجيش  (روه الإمام أحمد في مسنده).

"Verily you shall conquer Constantinople. What a wonderful leader will her leader be, and what a wonderful army will that army be!"

( Musnad, Imam Ahmad)

When secular Turkish nationalists conquered the city and proceeded to establish the modern secular Republic of Turkey in 1923, they chose Istanbul as the official name of the city and prohibited the use of the previous name or names; as a consequence the name ‘Constantinople’ has been receding from common vocabulary. Indeed it now appears to have entered into the museum of history.

Istanbul was not a new name. It was one of several names previously used for the city. However the name by which the city was best known was without doubt the name of Constantinople. And the prohibition of the use of any other name appears to have directed primarily against the use of that most well-known name. There is a reason why the name of the city was changed, and the use of other names prohibited, and this essay explains that reason.

It is commonly believed that this prophecy of Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) was fulfilled in 1453 when the Ottoman Turks, under the command of the young Sultan Muhammad (Mehmet) Fatih, conquered Constantinople. However the hadīth quoted below makes it quite clear that the conquest will take place in Ākhir al-Zamān just prior to the appearance of the Anti-Christ (or al-Masīh al-Dajjāl) in person (i.e., in the form of a human being who would declare that he is the Messiah):

Narrated Mu'adhibnJabal: The Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) said: ……the outbreak of the great war will be (followed by) the conquest of Constantinople; and the conquest of Constantinople will be (followed by) Dajjāl’s (Antichrist) coming forth (i.e., appearing or emerging). …….

(Sunan, AbīDaūd)

The essentially godless secular Turkish nationalists did not want Muslims to ever realize that the conquest of Constantinople prophesied by Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwa salaam) had not as yet occurred, and was still to come; and that appears to be at least one of the reasons why they changed the name of the city. Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) used the name Constantinople (al-Konstantaniyyah in Arabic) when he prophesied about the city. He did not use any other name. Hence if that name were to be relegated to a museum, it was quite possible that Muslim attention would be diverted from the implications of the prophecy.

We pointed out earlier that we are now located at that moment in history when Jerusalem is flourishing while Madina is in a state of desolation. Hence it is clear that the world now stands on the brink of great wars which, in turn, will provoke the prophesied Muslim conquest of Constantinople. That Muslim conquest will not only liberate the city from godless nationalist Turkish rule, but also extricate and liberate the city from NATO’s venomous Zionist embrace.

In the unlikely event that further evidence is required to prove our thesis, we now present further evidence which prove beyond doubt that the 1453 Ottoman conquest of Constantinople could not have been the conquest prophesied by Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam).

Consider the following:

The army that conquered Constantinople was comprised of several units. Some were volunteers who were attracted by the prospect of looting the city. Others were well-trained regular troops drawn from all parts of the Ottoman Empire. But at the heart of that Ottoman army was the best-trained elite unit of Janissaries. These were comprised of Christian children who were taken by force from their parents (in territories conquered by the Ottomans), and who were then converted to Islam by force and were given the best military training possible. They all owed their loyalty personally to the Sultan. Never in the history of Islam did Muslims ever disgrace Islam in such a way as to seize Christian children and convert them by force to Islam, and to then use them as such an elite fighting force that was supposed to be fighting in the name of Islam. This was manifestly sinful, monstrously embarrassing and a direct violation of Allah’s command in the Qur’an prohibiting conversion to Islam by force. The predictable result was to create eternal hatred and enmity for Islam and Muslims in the territories from which these Christian children were abducted. Those eastern Christian territories were precisely the Rūm concerning whom the Prophet prophesied that Muslims would enter into an End-Time alliance (i.e., with them).

When the Ottoman army broke through the defenses of the city and finally succeeded in entering the city as conquerors, what followed was “killing, looting, raping, burning and enslaving”. This may have been, and may still be the way that armies behave when they conquer a city, but this was not the way of Islam which enjoins respect and protection for the lives and honour of women, children, the elderly and those – like priests – whose lives are devoted to religion. Indeed there is evidence that even the Christian churches and monasteries were violated by the rampaging so-called Islamic army which broke in and proceeded to rape, plunder and kill even inside the church. The Sultan gave permission for this to continue, unrestricted by any ethical norms of warfare, for a period of three days. The Ottomans were unconcerned about the fact that Constantinople was the capital city of Byzantine Christianity (or Rūm). Such conduct on the part of the Ottoman army ensured eternal hatred for Islam in Byzantium.

But the conduct of the Sultan himself, as soon as he entered the city, was deplorable. He disgracefully and sinfully ordered that the great Byzantine Cathedral of Hagia Sophia which had been constructed 1000 years earlier by the Emperor Justinian, to be converted into a Masjid. When Muslims conquered Jerusalem at the time of the Khilāfah of Umar bin al-Kahttab, the Patriach of Jerusalem, Sophronius, refused to hand over the city to other than the Khalīfah himself. Umar had to travel from Madinah to Jerusalem to accept the keys to the city. While he was being escorted on a tour of the holy churches of Jerusalem the time for Salāt arrived and the Patriach graciously invited Umar to perform his Salāt right there in the Church of the Resurrection. Umar declined because he feared that it might constitute grounds for Muslims to subsequently convert the church to a Masjid.  The Ottoman conversion of Hagia Sophia to a Masjid was not an ordinary event. This was the greatest and most magnificent church in the entire Christian world. It had retained that position for 1000 years. In converting the church to a Masjid the Sultan not only embarrassed the world of Islam, but also drove a venomous knife into the very heart of eastern Byzantine Christianity that would never ever be forgotten. While others may convert churches, monasteries and even masājid (e.g. Cordoba) an Amīr who is personally praised by the Prophet himself cannot be expected to descend to that disgraceful standard of conduct.

We may note finally that Ottoman Sultans never married – because they did want to be encumbered with respect for legal rights which Islam gave to wives and to blood brothers (in matters pertaining to succession to leadership in a hereditary system of leadership). And so they restricted themselves to sleeping with slaves. Islam restricted a man to four wives, but there was no restriction as to how many female slaves he could own and with whom he could sleep. And so Ottoman Sultans had a stable of slaves referred to as the Harem. These women were almost exclusively taken from conquered Christian territories. They had no rights. The prophet of Islam had commanded: Give your slaves to eat the food that you yourself eat, and give them to wear the clothes that you yourself wear. Thus Islam restored the humanity of slaves and gave them rights. The Ottoman Sultans on the other hand, would sleep with a slave woman, and if she became pregnant and gave birth to a son, he would then terminate all sexual contact with her. He did this to ensure that she would have no more children, and hence no rivals to her son if he were ever to become Sultan himself. The Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) declared that “marriage was a half of faith”. It is not at all possible that the blessed prophet would condone such conduct on the part of Ottoman Sultans.

It is clear to this writer that Sultan Muhammad Fatih could not qualify as the Amīr mentioned in the hadīth; nor could that Ottoman army which he led qualify as the army mentioned in the hadith. The implication is that the Muslim conquest of Istanbul or Constantinople is an event which is yet to occur.

The reader is encouraged to study the subject further and to then come to his own conclusion.

Madinah returns to center-stage

This essay presents arguments and evidence that Madinah will soon be liberated from being a back-water, silent Saudi-Wahhabi university town into a city that will dramatically occupy center-stage in the affairs of the world, and this should warm the hearts of Muslims around the world.

Central to this thesis is the End-Time prophecy that the Arabs will be destroyed by epidemics (formerly referred to as plagues):

عن عَوْف بْن مَالِكٍ قَالَ أَتَيْتُ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فِي غَزْوَةِ تَبُوكَ وَهُوَ فِي قُبَّةٍ مِنْ أَدَمٍ فَقَالَ اعْدُدْ سِتًّا بَيْنَ يَدَيْ السَّاعَةِ مَوْتِي ثُمَّ فَتْحُ بَيْتِ الْمَقْدِسِ ثُمَّ مُوْتَانٌ يَأْخُذُ فِيكُمْ كَقُعَاصِ الْغَنَمِ ثُمَّ اسْتِفَاضَةُ الْمَالِ حَتَّى يُعْطَى الرَّجُلُ مِائَةَ دِينَارٍ فَيَظَلُّ سَاخِطًا ثُمَّ فِتْنَةٌ لَا يَبْقَى بَيْتٌ مِنْ الْعَرَبِ إِلَّا دَخَلَتْهُ ثُمَّ هُدْنَةٌ تَكُونُ بَيْنَكُمْ وَبَيْنَ بَنِي الْأَصْفَرِ فَيَغْدِرُونَ فَيَأْتُونَكُمْ تَحْتَ ثَمَانِينَ غَايَةً تَحْتَ كُلِّ غَايَةٍ اثْنَا عَشَرَ أَلْفًا (صحيح البخاري).

Narrated Auf bin Malik: I went to the Prophet during the Ghazwa of Tabūk while he was sitting in a leather tent. He said, "Count six signs that indicate the approach of the Hour: my death, the conquest of Jerusalem, a plague that will afflict you (and kill you in great numbers) as the plague that afflicts sheep, the increase of wealth to such an extent that even if one is given one hundred Dinārs, he will not be satisfied; then an affliction which no Arab house will escape, and then a Truce between you and Banū Al-Asfar who will betray you and attack you under eighty flags. Under each flag will be twelve thousand soldiers.

(Sahīh Bukhārī)

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَمْرٍو قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ تَكُونُ فِتْنَةٌ تَسْتَنْظِفُ الْعَرَبُ قَتْلَاهَا فِي النَّارِ اللِّسَانُ فِيهَا أَشَدُّ مِنْ السَّيْفِ . (سنن الترمذي وسنن ابن ماجه)

Abdullah bin Amr reported that the Messenger of Allah said: "There will come a calamity which will wipe out the Arabs. Their slain will be in hell. The tongue will be more severe in this than the blow of the sword."

(Tirmīidhi, IbnMājah)

There is evidence that the present ‘Arab Spring’ which commenced more than one year ago, like the one which preceded it one hundred years before, was Judeo-Christian-European crafted, and is meant to prepare the way for an Arab slaughter which will facilitate the imposition of Israeli political and economic dominion over the Arabs.

It is almost certain that Zionists will soon wage biological war against the Arabs (on Dajjāl’s behalf) as prophesied by the Prophet, with which to bring about a substantial reduction in the population of the Arab world.

There are several Ahadīth which inform us that neither plague nor Dajjāl can enter Makkah and Madinah:

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَلَى أَنْقَابِ الْمَدِينَةِ مَلَائِكَةٌ لَا يَدْخُلُهَا الطَّاعُونُ وَلَا الدَّجَّالُ  (صحيح البخاري)

Abu Huraira(radiallahu 'anhu) said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihiwasallam) said: There are angels at the entrances of Madinah. Neither plagues nor Dajjāl shall enter it.

(Sahīh Bukhārī)

Our view, and Allah Knows best, is that this prophecy pertains to the biological attack on the Arabs that would be launched on Dajjāl’s behalf (hence the juxtaposition of plague with Dajjāl in the Hadīth).  Hence our conclusion is that Makkah and Madinah are destined to dramatically recover center-stage in Islamic and world affairs when the two cities provide dramatic and providential safety at that time when the biological attack on the Arabs is launched.

But Madinah, the university town with the purest expression of Saudi-Wahhabi Islam, is destined to play an even greater and more dramatic role in history, - a role that will be profoundly embarrassing for the Saudi-Wahhabi expression of Islam.

Madinah will eclipse Makkah at center-stage

It is not at all difficult for us to anticipate large-scale movement of Arabs to Makkah and Madinah as soon as Israel commences her great wars.  One can even expect that this essay might possibly provoke that movement to commence even before the wars begin. The Arabs will do so since they will be in a state of expectation of the epidemics that are prophesied to decimate or wipe out the Arabs. When Makkah and Madinah are over-flowing with Arabs seeking safety and refuge from death by plague, that mass gathering will surely provoke a spontaneous and volatile combustion between those with the chemical of faith in Islam in their hearts on the one hand, and those who serve Dajjāl on the other.

It is easy today to recognize those Arabs who serve Dajjāl since they are the ones who are shamelessly and sinfully supported the recent unjust NATO overthrow of the Libyan regime, and are now beating drums in support of an equally unjust Israeli/Turkish/NATO war on Syria and on Iran. They have forgotten that the Qur’an has prohibited Muslims from being friends and allies of a Judeo-Christian alliance (al-Maida 5:51) and has also prohibited unjust war while enjoining absolute justice!

The spontaneous combustion in Madinah is destined to lead to dramatic events with a potential to profoundly embarrass that ‘purest’ expression of Saudi Islam. The Prophet prophesied the following:

عن أَنَس بْن مَالِكٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ لَيْسَ مِنْ بَلَدٍ إِلَّا سَيَطَؤُهُ الدَّجَّالُ إِلَّا مَكَّةَ وَالْمَدِينَةَ لَيْسَ لَهُ مِنْ نِقَابِهَا نَقْبٌ إِلَّا عَلَيْهِ الْمَلَائِكَةُ صَافِّينَ يَحْرُسُونَهَا ثُمَّ تَرْجُفُ الْمَدِينَةُ بِأَهْلِهَا ثَلَاثَ رَجَفَاتٍ فَيُخْرِجُ اللَّهُ كُلَّ كَافِرٍ وَمُنَافِقٍ . (صحيح البخاري)

AnasIbn Malik (radiallahu 'anhu) said: The Prophet (sallallahu 'alaihiwasallam) said: There is no town that Dajjāl will not enter except Makkah and Madinah. There is no entrance of its entrances that is not guarded by angels in rows. Then, Madinah will quake with its people three times, and then Allah will bring out of it every kāfir and munāfiq (hypocrite).

(Sahīh Bukhārī)

قَالَ أَنَسُ بْنُ مَالِكٍ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَيْسَ مِنْ بَلَدٍ إِلَّا سَيَطَؤُهُ الدَّجَّالُ إِلَّا مَكَّةَ وَالْمَدِينَةَ وَلَيْسَ نَقْبٌ مِنْ أَنْقَابِهَا إِلَّا عَلَيْهِ الْمَلَائِكَةُ صَافِّينَ تَحْرُسُهَا فَيَنْزِلُ بِالسِّبْخَةِ فَتَرْجُفُ الْمَدِينَةُ ثَلَاثَ رَجَفَاتٍ يَخْرُجُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْهَا كُلُّ كَافِرٍ وَمُنَافِقٍ . ورواية مماثلة بنفس الإسناد غَيْرَ أَنَّهُ قَالَ فَيَأْتِي سِبْخَةَ الْجُرُفِ فَيَضْرِبُ رِوَاقَهُ وَقَالَ فَيَخْرُجُ إِلَيْهِ كُلُّ مُنَافِقٍ وَمُنَافِقَةٍ . (صحيح مسلم)

AnasIbn Malik said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihiwasallam) said: There is no town that Dajjāl will not enter except Makkah and Madinah. There is no entrance of its entrances that is not guarded by angels in rows. Dajjāl will camp at a salty barren area, then Madinah will shake three times, and then every kāfir and munāfiq (hypocrite) will come out of it to join him. In a similar narration with the same final chain of transmission, he says instead: He shall come to the barren salty area of Juruf and set up his camp. And he also said: And then every male and female hypocrite will come out to join him.

(Sahīh Muslim)

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ يَأْتِي الْمَسِيحُ مِنْ قِبَلِ الْمَشْرِقِ هِمَّتُهُ الْمَدِينَةُ حَتَّى يَنْزِلَ دُبُرَ أُحُدٍ ثُمَّ تَصْرِفُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَجْهَهُ قِبَلَ الشَّامِ وَهُنَالِكَ يَهْلِكُ . (صحيح مسلم)

Abu Huraira said: The Messenger of Allah sallallahu 'alaihiwasallam said: The False Messiah will come from the east, intending to go to Medina, until he encamps behind Uhud. Then, angels will divert his face (his direction) toward Shām (The North, i.e., Greater Syria), and there he dies.

(Sahīh Muslim)

These Ahadīth indicate that Israel will eventually attack the Hijāz. At that time Dajjāl will be the leader of the Jewish State. Perhaps the Israeli forces will launch that attack because of the belief that Madinah is a part of the Holy Land (since the Jews lived in Madina for a long time).

When Israeli forces land outside Madinah, every supporter of the Zionists will leave the city to join the Israelis. The three times that Madinah will shake (resulting in the city being emptied of all Kuffāror disbelievers and Munāfiqūn or hypocrites) could, perhaps, represent three revolutionary Islamic uprisings that would send tremors around the world.

In addition of course, there is also the well-known phenomenon of ‘rats leaving a sinking ship’. But this ship would not sink. Instead the angels would then divert the Israeli attack to Damascus and it would be at that time that Nabi ‘Isa(‘alaihi al-Salām) the true Messiah would dramatically descend to kill Dajjāl the false Messiah.

It should please the heart of every sincere Muslim that the city of the Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) is destined to play such a dramatic and strategic role in Ākhir al-Zamān when it returns to center-stage in both International and Islamic Affairs to separate those who remain faithful to Islam from those who have become Kuffār and Munāfiqūn while serving the Anglo-American Judeo-Christian Zionist alliance.  How wonderful it would be on that day for the world to witness the angels purifying and defending the city of the blessed Prophet (sallalahu ‘alaihiwasallam) and diverting the Israeli attack to Damascus. One can only wonder how many scholars – if any - would be left in the Saudi-controlled Islamic University of Madinah after Madinah has shaken three times! May Allah guide and strengthen the sincere scholars of Islam in Saudi Arabia to rise up before Madinah shakes three times. Amīn!

(This writer gratefully acknowledges the expertise of Dr Tammam ‘Adi in the translation of some of the above Ahadīth to English. He is also indebted to his dear friend and brother, Muhammad Alamgir in Sydney, who read the first draft of this essay and alerted him to the Ottoman connection with Dajjāl’s plan to demolish the Khilāfah.)

 
Continuing Iqbal's Quranic Thought PDF Print E-mail
Islamic Philosophy
Written by Imran N Hosein   
Tuesday, 18 Jamadil Awal 1433
The present article is based on the address delivered on April 21, 1997, during the Annual Qur’anic Muahadrat (Lectures) held at Qur’an Auditorium (Lahore).
The Continuity of Iqbal’s Qur’anic Thought The Genesis of Pakistan and the Islamic Revolution in Iran Viewed in the context of Iqbal’s Qur’anic Thought and its Continuity in Dr. Israr Ahmad

 “The Days of Allah” and Qur’anic Thought

When Almighty Allah (SWT) sent Musa (AS) with His ayaat (Signs or Proofs), He sent him with the specific mission of extricating his people, i.e., the Israelites or Banu Israel, from the darkness of ignorance into the light of Truth. In order that this objective be successfully pursued, Allah (SWT) further ordered Musa (s) as follows:

وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا مُوسَىٰ بِآيَاتِنَا أَنْ أَخْرِجْ قَوْمَكَ مِنَ الظُّلُمَاتِ إِلَى النُّورِ وَذَكِّرْهُمْ بِأَيَّامِ اللَّهِ ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِكُلِّ صَبَّارٍ شَكُورٍ
And remind them of the Days of Allah (Surah Ibrahim: 14:5).

The “Days of Allah” are the historical landmarks which reveal the movement of the Truth in history. Time and again, in the historical process, Truth triumphs over its rivals and, according to Dr. Burhan Ahmad Faruqi, the direction of the movement of history is thus restored, time and again, to that of Sirat Al-Mustaqeem (the Straight Path). Qur’anic thought is that thought which penetrates the Qur’an with such creative insight as permits the thinker not only to discern the landmarks which constitute the “Days of Allah” in post-Qur’anic history (i.e., history since the revelation of the Qur’an), but also to understand the process of the movement of Truth in history and thus to penetrate and understand the true nature of the age in which he lives.

Pakistan and America heading for a serious confrontation over Pak-Nukes PDF Print E-mail
Islam and Politics
Written by Mujahid Hosein   
Friday, 24 Shawwal 1432

Mujahid Hosein is the son of Imran N Hosein.

The original goal of the invasion of Afghanistan was not to drop bombs on mud-huts, or fight ghost-terrorists like Al-Qaeda, or to fight some imaginary heavily-armed Guerrilla Groups whom America needs 130,000 troops to contain. The truth is far from it, in fact that truth has been tainted to the extent that the lie has disguised itself as the truth to fool the rest of the world.

Many players are actively participating in the all-western power's attempt to destabilize Pakistan. There is every reason for this to be the objective, since all major western powers are heavily lobbied by Pro-Zionist Power Block that control a hefty chunk of the wealth that circulates in the western world. The power of the Pro-Zionist Block in the western world has been aptly demonstrated by the U.S Housing Market crash in 2008, the Sovereign Debt of Major European countries in 2011, the staggering Gold Appreciation which is currently at $1662/Troy Oz (£1016/Troy Oz), U.S Debt Ceiling fiasco (July 2011) and Credit Rating Firms sudden rise to prominence (2011).

The Pro-Zionist Block views Pakistan as the only credible threat to the existence to the State of Israel. This threat assessment seems a bit disconnected however, since Pakistan doesn't have any direct border with Israel, nor is Pakistan in the same region as Israel. So why is it, that Pakistan is viewed by the Pro-Zionist Block as the most deadly threat to Israel's existence and what is it that Israel has or would done/do to warrant any aggression from Pakistan. The answer is, nothing .... so far! Pakistan has no direct or indirect aggression toward Israel, however, there is something that Israel will do in the future which will provoke Pakistan.

FURTHER LESSONS FROM THE ZIONIST ATTACK ON LIBYA PDF Print E-mail

Explaining this lesson one more time

It is so sad that the few critics who commented negatively on my last essay on Libya studiously avoided commenting on or responding to my most serious charge against those Muslims who participated in/supported the well-armed and long-planned insurrection that toppled the Libyan government in the capital city of Tripoli.

I brought to public attention Allah’s command in the Qur’ān which sternly prohibited Muslims from entering into precisely that alliance with NATO with which those misguided Muslims were eventually able to achieve their immediate objective in Libya of seizing the capital city of Tripoli and then claiming recognition as the new government:

{يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تَتَّخِذُواْ الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَى أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضٍ وَمَن يَتَوَلَّهُم مِّنكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ}

“O you who have faith (in Allah) do not take (such) Jews and (such) Christians as your friends and allies who themselves are friends and allies of each other. And whoever from amongst you turns to them (for friendship and alliance) now belong to them (and not to us). Surely Allah does not guide a wicked people.”

(Qur’ān, al-Māida, 5:51)

They must know that the Qur’an does not here refer to individual friendship between a Jew and a Christian.  Rather, the Qur’an anticipated more than 1400 years ago the mysterious reconciliation that was forged between most European Christians and European Jews - a reconciliation in which the Vatican played a strategically important role by way of exonerating Jews from responsibility for the crucifixion of Jesus the true Messiah (‘alaihi al-Salām).

As recently as a few months ago Pope Benedict released a new book in which he cleverly argued that “there is no basis in Scripture for the argument that the Jewish people as a whole were responsible for Jesus' death”.  How could the Jewish people as a whole bear responsibility for the crucifixion when there were many Jews who accepted Jesus as the Messiah and hence had no part in the demand for his crucifixion? Did they cease to be Jews when they believed in Jesus as the promised Messiah?

وَلَقَدْ ذَرَأْنَا لِجَهَنَّمَ كَثِيرًا مِّنَ الْجِنِّ وَالإِنسِ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌ لاَّ يَفْقَهُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ أَعْيُنٌ لاَّ يُبْصِرُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ آذَانٌ لاَّ يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَا أُوْلَـئِكَ كَالأَنْعَامِ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّ أُوْلَـئِكَ هُمُ الْغَافِلُونَ


".  .  .  .  they have hearts and yet do not understand, they have eyes and yet do not see, they have ears and yet do not hear; Such people are just like cattle.  .  .  ."

(Qur'an, al-'Araaf, 7:179)


Those who see with two eyes, the internal as well as the external, would recognize 'Zionism' and 'Zionist Imperialism' written all over the well-armed and long-planned insurrection which toppled the Libyan government. This was no spontaneous popular uprising of a people against their dictatorial ruler as the Zionist-controlled news media around the world would have us believe. Nor was the regime toppled because the people responded with rage to the regime's alleged slaughter of innocent protestors. That is the brain-washing that passes for news and is swallowed by cattle as Truth.

It is quite easy to recognize Zionist intimidation and control of news media when mainstream newspapers radio and television around the world (including Al-Jazeerah) adamantly refuse to question the blatantly false official explanation of the 9/11 terrorist attack on America.

The bitter truth is that there are many Libyan Muslims who will now be mercilessly killed unless they submit and embrace  the new blood-stained dictatorship which has been imposed upon them at the point of a Zionist sword.

Using a barbarian strategy which came from the 'beast of the earth', the forces of insurrection struck their final Satanic blow at dusk in the month of Ramadan when believers were breaking their day-long fast. They embarked on an indiscriminate killing-spree intended to instill panic in the Libyan capital city of Tripoli and to thus destabilize its military defense. More than a thousand innocent Libyan Muslims became shuhada - having just completed a day of fasting - as they were mercilessly mowed down with weapons supplied by the Zionist Kuffar. Only a brain-washed people would accept that satanic warfare as a spontaneous popular uprising.

And so they scurry around in a vain attempt to save themselves by reaching out to embrace the Saudis who are as guilty as themselves in lust for Yankee pleasures.

The rich secularised westernized elite who control decision-making in Pakistan’s government as well as the Armed Forces have long looked down with disdain and contempt at scholars of Islam whom they scornfully dismiss as Mullahs!  They control the Pakistani news media and use it to propagate and promote whatever is deviant, false and corrupt while steadfastly covering the truth. They would be scandalized by our firmly-held belief that the Qur’an and Sunnah should play pivotal roles in the conduct of state as well as in the formulation of foreign policy; and they yet persist in the frivolous and absurd claim that the Pakistan over which they rule is an ‘Islamic’ Republic. 

Deaf dumb and blind they have consistently found it expedient to ride (first class) on a US-Dollar (Green-Back) rainbow while traveling back and forth between Islamabad and Washington and formulating pro-American policies and taking pro-American decisions on matters pertaining to strategic affairs. As a consequence they now have the blood of hundreds (maybe thousands) of innocent Pakistanis on their hands – killed in bombing raids still being conducted by US drones and by the Pakistan Air Force on behalf of their Zionist paymasters. An independent investigation will certainly confirm the innocence of the overwhelming majority of those so killed.

They consistently and disgracefully thwarted every effort that Muslims of Pakistan made throughout that country’s history to enforce Allah’s Law which prohibited, among so many other things, Riba (i.e., money being lent on interest). They would most probably stare with uncomprehending eyes in response to any claim that the Pakistani Rupee, like all other paper money in the world today, is utterly bogus, fraudulent and Haram, and functions as an instrument of legalized theft of the wealth and sweat of the masses. 

Time has now run out for them. The horrendous evil implications of their godlessness, their misguided conduct of state, as well as their evil choice of foreign policy now stares them in their bloated faces as the miserably poor suffering and enraged masses prepare to lynch them for their utter betrayal of both Islam and Pakistan.

IS IMAM AL-MAHDI ABOUT TO EMERGE? PDF Print E-mail
Signs of Last Day
Written by Imran Nazar Hosein   
Friday, 05 Rabi'ul Akhir 1432
There are some Muslims who, impressed by the views of distinguished scholars such as Ibn Khaldun and Dr Muhammad Iqbal, have rejected belief in the advent of Imām al-Mahdi. Some of them even go on to dismiss our preoccupation with this subject with disdain and with spurious comments.

They should be warned that it is not only false but also sinful to argue that those who strive for a deeper understanding of the subject of the advent of Imām al-Mahdi (‘alaihi al-Salām) are a people who are content to sit waiting with folded arms for the Imām while doing nothing to combat falsehood and oppression in the world.

We have no doubt that certain members of the Ummah of Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) will be blessed with true dreams and visions which will convey to them information concerning the End-Time advent of Imām al-Mahdi (‘alaihi al-Salām). Readers must know however, that information so obtained cannot be objectively verified, and hence that there is no compulsion on any one to accept such information as truth.

This writer has never attempted to use such information in his analysis of events now mysteriously unfolding in the world, and in the Holy Land in particular. Rather he has continuously striven to grasp the ‘system of meaning’ of the subject of the End Times as derived from data located in the Qur’ān and Ahadīth of Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu ‘alaihi wa sallam). He is confident that his students will Insha Allah, continue that effort when he is no longer in this world. His conclusions, based on rational analysis (and intuitive internal insight), must always be qualified with the words Allahu ‘alam (Allah Knows best).

HOW WILL ISRAEL RESPOND TO POPULAR ARAB UPRISINGS? PDF Print E-mail
Islam and Politics
Written by Imran Nazar Hosein   
Friday, 28 Rabi'ul Awal 1432
The reality is that dramatic political change now sweeping the Arab world would eventually facilitate the execution of Israel’s war agenda against the Arabs, as well as against Pakistan and Iran.

Islamic scholarship must thread very carefully when responding to urgent and insistent Muslim requests for an explanatory response to the current Arab uprisings. The events now mysteriously unfolding in the Arab world have taken most of mankind by surprise, while raising legitimate questions concerning implications for Israel of what appears as a complete change in the strategic environment in which the Euro-Jewish State is located. Care is needed while writing on this subject since the appearance that Israel’s strategic environment is changing in a manner that poses a very grave threat to the Euro-Jewish State conceals a reality that is quite otherwise.

There is certainly more to the uprisings than meet the eye - but at this time we have no need to attempt to expose the maneuvering of hidden hands since the crusading western media has already recklessly and brazenly exposed what many had already suspected. In addition, many Muslims are slowly realizing the sinister role that western Riba has played in reducing the masses in Egypt, Pakistan, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Haiti and elsewhere to biting poverty.  That biting poverty certainly played a role in bringing so many Arabs onto the streets.

 Rather we must hasten to pay tribute to those courageous Tunisian and Egyptian people who gave a spectacular demonstration to the rest of mankind of what a united people can achieve when courageously confronting even the most ruthless of oppressors. We must also seize this opportunity to plead for an end to sectarian strife within the Muslim world while raising instead, and as high as possible, the standard of united Muslim resistance to Israeli oppression. We are painfully aware that millions (Arabs in particular) will die before we succeed in putting an end to that oppression. Even so, we must not falter in our resolve to fulfill the mission which was given to this Ummah of standing up for what is right and just, and standing up against what is wrong and unjust (amr bil m‘arūf and nahi ‘an al-munkar) regardless of the price we will surely have to pay.

 This essay, written in the enchanting Venezuelan city of Caracas, attempts to provide an Islamic explanation of the uprisings by focusing, I believe quite rightly so, on how Israel and her Judeo-Christian Zionist supporters are likely to respond.

A MUSLIM RESPONSE TO THE SACKING OF FAZEER MOHAMMED PDF Print E-mail
Islam and Politics
Written by Imran Nazar Hosein   
Monday, 15 Dhul-Hijjah 1431

The Trinidad and Tobago Government-owned Caribbean News Media Group’s Fazeer Mohammed (who is also a populat cricket commentator) was recently fired shortly after Foreign Minister Surujrattan Rambachan questioned him on his view regarding the rule of a woman.

The reckless, hurried and politically-tainted Saturday-afternoon sacking of CNMG’s talk-show host Fazeer Mohammed, within 48 hours of an ill-advised public baiting by Foreign Minister Surujrattan Rambachan, has predictably fractured the Peoples’ Partnership Alliance. The Prime Minister has only herself to blame for not promptly and firmly distancing herself and her government from what is increasingly perceived as a bogus explanation for that sacking. It may also now be too late to make amends for this political faux pas since all the Queen’s horses and all the Queen’s foxes cannot bring Fazeer to CNMG again!

WILL AN ISRAELI ATTACK ON IRAN PROVOKE THE EMERGENCE OF ANOTHER FALSE MAHDI? PDF Print E-mail
Signs of Last Day
Written by Imran Nazar Hosein   
Tuesday, 22 Sha'ban 1431

Prophet Muhammad prophesied the advent of an Imām who would emerge by Divine decree to lead the world of Islam at that time when the true Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary (peace and blessings of Allah Most High be upon them all), was about to return.  The Prophet declared of that end-time Imām that he would arise from within the ranks of the Muslims: “How would you be”, he said, “when the son of Mary descends amongst you and your Imām would be from your own ranks!” (Sahīh Bukhāri).

An Imām in the religion of Islam is both a religious as well as a political leader; hence the office of the Imām is synonymous with that of Amīr or Khalīfa (Caliph).  The Hadīth therefore prophesied that one (Islamic) government would eventually rule over the entire world of Islam, and that the Imām would be both the political as well as the religious head of that government. 

This prophecy anticipated the present sorry status quo in which the Islamic Khilāfah (Caliphate) has been replaced by republican so-called Islamic States based on petty tribal nationalisms – Egyptian, Saudi, Pakistani, Arab, Malay, Punjabi, Bengali, Persian (Iranian) etc. African-American Muslims have even embraced Louis Farrakhan’s ‘black Muslim nationalism’. Some of them, such as Turkey and Bangladesh have even imposed secular constitutional bans preventing Islam from playing any political role in the affairs of the State.

The Second Sinking PDF Print E-mail
Signs of Last Day
Written by Imran Nazar Hosein   
Friday, 13 Rajab 1431

WILL THE SECOND SINKING OF THE EARTH SOON OCCUR?

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) prophesied that ten major Signs of the Last Day would occur as follows:

1. Dajjal, the false Messiah or Anti-Christ,

2. Gog and Magog,

3. Smoke,

4. The beast of the earth or land (most likely the holy land),

5. That the sun would rise from the west,

6, 7 & 8. That the earth will sink on three occasions - one in the East, one in the West and one in Arabia,

9. That a fire would come out of Yemen and would drive people to their place of assembly (for judgement),

10. That the son of Mary would descend (i.e. return).

The blessed Prophet did not provide information concerning the chronological order in which those Ten Signs would occur.

Israel's Next War, How Soon? PDF Print E-mail
Islam and Politics
Written by Imran Nazar Hosein   
Thursday, 27 Jamadil Akhir 1431

I fear that Israel will move swiftly to exploit to her advantage soon-to-occur world-wide hysterical fear of calamitous consequences of the major Gulf of Mexico oil leak that has already caused very large quantities of oil to flow into the Gulf – most of it still under the surface of the water - with simultaneous release of very large and perhaps even more dangerous quantities of gas. Both oil and gas are highly flammable, and experts will have to pronounce concerning the possibility of a deliberate or accidental ignition of all of this oil/gas and the horrendous consequences of such an explosion for the world. Is it possible, for example, that we can experience an extended period of darkness in the Americas in which black clouds will prevent the entry of sunlight?

Those who today possess a significant influence, if not control, over most of the world’s information media, may soon begin to inundate us with fearsome doomsday predictions concerning the possible consequences of the unplugged oil-well leak. This is likely to rise to a crescendo as possible consequences begin to materialize.

The universal distraction that will thus be created could provide, I believe, a perfect opportunity for Israel to launch yet another war that would seek to arrest her declining image and fortunes in world opinion. This is the clear message conveyed through the recent reckless and murderous attack on the Gaza Aid Flotilla that resulted in 9 deaths and in injuries to 50 others.
