RESPONDING TO GAZZA 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? 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.

Срочное сообщение для татар, живущих в Крыму - Russian Translation Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
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 Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
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

 

 
URGENT STATEMENT Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
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

Pakistan and America heading for a serious confrontation over Pak-Nukes Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
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 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.

HOW WILL ISRAEL RESPOND TO POPULAR ARAB UPRISINGS? Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
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 Print E-mail

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!

Israel's Next War, How Soon? Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
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.

Israel's Piracy, Gaza's Starvartion and our Berlin Walls Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
Wednesday, 19 Jamadil Akhir 1431

A humanitarian convoy of ships carrying thousands of tons of supplies and hundreds of politicians, activists and journalists was attacked last night by the Israeli Armed Forces in a carefully calculated air and sea assault while the ships (some carrying Turkish flags) were still in international waters. The Flotilla was seeking to break Israel's three-year-long blockade of Gaza in order to deliver basic necessities such as food and medicine to the impoverished Palestinians living in the coastal enclave. Israeli forces raided the Freedom Flotilla, killing at least 20 people.

It was not by accident that most of those killed and injured were Turkish nationals who were aboard ships flying Turkish flags. I fear that Israel’s coldly calculated attack of criminal ‘piracy’ is meant to provoke Turkey’s pro-Islamic government to respond in a way that Israel could then exploit to initiate the big war that has long been planned.

The back-up plan may be to initiate a limited war that could provoke a military coup d’état and regime change in Turkey. The largely secular Turkish military which has remained firmly supportive of Israel will certainly be complicit in such a back-up plan.

Iqbāl and Pakistan's Moment of Truth - FULL ESSAY Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
Thursday, 12 Safar 1431

Introductory comment

Time is running out for the republican State of Pakistan. Only those who see with one eye will fail to recognize the evil reality that clients of Israel now control strategic decision-making both in Pakistan’s government as well as in the Armed Forces. The writing appears to be on the wall for Pakistan – unless Pakistani Muslims can rid themselves of those clients of Israel. The best way to do so appears to be through massive peaceful public demonstrations similar to those which brought down the USSR with narry a nuclear risk, rather than civil war which will automatically invite external military intervention that will eventually dismember Pakistan.

Scholars of Islam have a duty to prepare Muslims for destructive attacks that are soon to be launched which will target not only Pakistan but perhaps, Turkey and Iran as well. The situation is not entirely hopeless since at least the Iranian Armed Forces do not appear to be under the control of Israel’s clients. In fact Iran seems to have already succeeded in building a strategic alliance with Russia. It is interesting to note that an authentic Hadīth has prophesied an end-time Muslim alliance with Rūm (i.e., Byzantine Christianity that was based in Constantinople), and Russia is part of Rūm. The Saudi and Pakistani governments and Armed Forces on the other hand, are allied with the Anglo-American-Israeli alliance which does not form part of Rūm.

Those who control power in Britain, USA, and Israel, and who now have a strategic ally in India, are already waging unjust war on Islam and Muslims in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia and elsewhere, but most of all in the Holy Land (otherwise known as Palestine). Their ruthlessness is such that they would wage war even upon their own people if such were deemed to be necessary for achieving their messianic goal. The 9/11 terrorist attack on America which killed thousands of innocent people was an ominous example of what they are capable of doing. The recent US military occupation of Haiti in consequence of a massive earthquake for which the US Armed Forces seem to have been mysteriously prepared (right down to drills conducted on the very eve of the earthquake), displays for the umpteenth time the extent to which they would commit monstrously evil deeds in dogmatic pursuit of goals such as the overthrow of Venezuela’s courageous government. Earthquakes have now become their mysterious new weapon of war. Will Caracas and Islamabad soon be targeted with massive earthquakes? Or will a nuclear device be exploded in USA or a very prominent American assassinated, and Pakistani or Iranian Muslims be held responsible, so that causus bellum can be created?

Their messianic goal is to deliver to Israel the rule over the whole world so that a false Messiah can rule the world from Jerusalem with a fraudulent claim to be the true Messiah. That goal cannot be achieved so long as Pakistan possesses nuclear military power. Hence the most important attack that must now be anticipated is on Pakistan’s nuclear installations.

OBAMA’S AFGHAN SURGE, PAKISTAN’S MOMENT OF TRUTH AND DEATH OF THE US DOLLAR Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
Friday, 23 Dhul-Hijjah 1430
It must be particularly hurtful to that westernized and secularized elite, both in and out of Pakistan, that essays such as this should be penned by scholars of Islam who are unafraid to proclaim the truth in the faces of the world’s greatest tyrants.

I believe that the US President’s recent announcement of a dramatic increase in US troops to be sent to occupied-Afghanistan was camouflaged with psychological ploys. This was hardly surprising since those who truly control power in USA – power to choose someone, anoint him and make him President – are a people who have PhDs in deception.

The media use of the soft word ‘surge’ for example, is a clever ploy detracting attention from the harsh reality of significant and very dangerous US military escalation in that volatile region of the world. Readers must know that Afghanistan is the heart of ancient Khorasan, and it has the unique distinction of never having submitted to western occupation. They must also know that the power-brokers who control the White House are recklessly plunging all of mankind into an abyss the likes of which was never before experienced in history – certainly far worse than anything experienced under George Bush.

"My words are like stars – they do not set." Chief See-at-hl Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
Wednesday, 05 Ramadaan 1430

The French have a proverb: ‘plus ça change, plus c'est la meme chose’, i.e. the more it (appears to) change - the more it is (in fact) the same thing.

Muslims are being slaughtered in Afghanistan, North-West Pakistan, Iraq, Somalia and elsewhere, and we anticipate more of the same “from the river of Egypt to the great River Euphrates’ as well as in Venezuela, Bolivia, Iran and elsewhere. Yet many still do not recognize the falsehood of the claim that all the intimidation, bloodshed and mass slaughter is being perpetrated in the name of establishing democracy. In fact the substance of the Judeo-Christian European alliance which drives the current barbaric Anglo-American-Israeli world-order does not appear to have changed in the last 150 years. Consider the following words of Chief See-at-hl, delivered in a speech directed at the President of America in 1855. This same address could have been delivered by Malcolm X 100 years later in 1955. And if we had the eloquence of those two men we could speak the same words today, 150 years later, in a world now ruled by the same white slave-master who now hides behind a deceptively innocent black face.

Imran N. Hosein

I would like to acknowledge a dear student of mine, Siti Rabeah Abdul Malek (Umm Ridwan), who very kindly directed my attention to this great speech.

IMPLICATIONS OF AN INDO-US ATTACK ON PAKISTAN Print E-mail

Wednesday, 11 Dhul-Hijjah 1429

If Mumbai’s recent spectacular act of false-flag terrorism does not quite create opportunity for an Indo-US attack on Pakistan, another such act of provocation that could function as causus bellum will have to be cooked-up in order to justify a destruction of that Muslim country’s nuclear plants and its elimination from the nuclear club. That Sunni Pakistan will be so attacked is certain, but that Shia Iran will also be attacked is not quite certain.

This Essay was written in late 2008 and is of importance to understanding events which are now occuring.

 

The financial/monetary summit which is now being arranged is certainly linked to Dajjal's phase three.

It is through a study of events which led to the passage from Dajjal's phase one to phase two that we can anticipate and recognize events now unfolding, and soon to unfold in the historical process, which would indicate the passage to phase three.

A Bhutto is a Bhutto Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
Saturday, 26 Dhul-Hijjah 1428
 
I slept through the night without any consciousness that it was old year's night, and I went to the Masjid here in Cape Town this morning for Salaat, came back home and made me a nice cup of coffee, and then went back to work on this Bhutto essay without any consciousness that Pope Gregory's New Year had dawned. That represents startling evidence of the anti-systemic character of my being and consciousness.

The Anglo-American-Israeli triple alliance which now rules the world from London, Washington and Jerusalem, and which wages unjust war on Islam and Muslims on behalf of the Euro-Jewish State of Israel, has lost in the assassination of Benazir Bhutto one who proclaimed herself to be their dearest friend and supporter. She walked the extra mile, and talked even more than that, to convince them that she was a sincere friend and ally. She did so because she understood perfectly well that Pakistan, like Saudi Arabia, was different from most other countries in the world in the sense that the ruling Jewish-Christian alliance that had created the world-order would never tolerate the survival of any regime in either country unless it was subservient to them. While this was also true of nearly all of the rest of the world of Islam, it was emphatically so in respect of Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

A Muslim Response to The ‘Trinity Cross’ Problem Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
Wednesday, 01 Sha'ban 1428
Trinidad and Tobago’s highest national award was designated the ‘Trinity Cross’. This essay was published in 2004 in a full-page of a local newspaper, and it provoked a major Hindu organization to join hands with a Muslim body to take the matter to court. The judge ruled that the national award was discriminatory. The government which had procrastinated on the issue for almost 40 years, was forced to respond and change the award.

Some declare, with their heads buried ‘ostrich-like’ in the sand, that there is no ‘Trinity Cross’ problem facing this country, or that it is a ‘non-issue’. Others recognise the problem but choose to do nothing about it, or to peddle disinformation and scurry around inventing flimsy and irrelevant defences for an unjust and, hence, indefensible status quo. We are saddened by this, but not surprised.

Indian Muslims in The Caribbean Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
Wednesday, 01 Sha'ban 1428

How should we, Indian Muslims in the Caribbean, commemorate the event of our arrival in the Caribbean almost 200 years ago? If we do not ourselves respond at this time to this subject in a manner consistent with our faith in Allah Most High, and with our mission as Muslims in the world, then our great grandmother’s tears would be shamelessly exploited by those who pursue a sinister agenda on behalf of the slave-master who brought us from distant India to these shores, and who still rules the world.

It was in the quaint town of Ladysmith in South Africa that I met Dr. Adam two years ago. I had just delivered a lecture on Islam in which I lamented that my audience was almost exclusively Indian, despite the fact that they were Muslims and they had ‘arrived’ in black South Africa from their native India generations ago. I mentioned that I had the same depressing experience when I entered the Masjid in Bridgetown in the Caribbean island of Barbados and felt as if I was in downtown Bombay. And even in my own native Trinidad there were so-called Islamic organizations that were not only almost exclusively Indian, but also went out of their way to preserve and promote their ‘Indian’ identity. One of them even banned this writer from lecturing on Islam, and declared that he was “a great security risk”.

‘Hanging’ as a Deterrent — A view from Islam Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
Friday, 27 Rajab 1428
The demand for ‘hanging’ of condemned murderers has provoked many to respond negatively. The basic argument raised by the critics is that capital punishment does not function, or no longer functions, as a deterrent to the crime of murder. They argue that even if all those on death row were to be ‘hanged’, the killings and murders would still continue, and may very well increase despite the ‘hangings’. Since the impression was created that the decision to resume hangings was a political response to runaway crime (including murder), it was not unreasonable to infer the rationale for that decision, to wit, that a resumption of hangings would deter would-be murderers.

Islam and Terrorism — A Muslim Response To The Attack On London Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
Friday, 27 Rajab 1428

FIRST WORD

We begin with Allah’s blessed name. We praise and glorify Him as He ought to be praised and glorified. And we pray for peace and for blessings on all His noble Prophets and Messengers, and in particular on the last of them all, the blessed Prophet Muhammad.

The last Prophet warned that “before the Last Hour there would be great liars – so beware of them” (Sahih Muslim). We recognize this to be the Last Age, and we seek refuge and protection with Allah from the international bullies who hid behind a mountain of lies and deception in order to plan and execute the 9/11 attack on America, as well as the 7/7 attack on London (i.e., July 7th, 2005), and to then put the blame on innocent Muslims. They did so, the first time, in order to exploit the opportunity to brutally attack and colonize Afghanistan and Iraq (while again hiding behind a mountain of lies) and to take control of Iraq’s great rivers of water and huge oceans of oil. This second time around the attack is on the religion of Islam itself, the institutions of Islamic learning, and the rightly guided scholars of Islam.

Can Muslims Vote in Elections of the Modern Secular State? Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
Friday, 27 Rajab 1428

What is the legitimacy of the modern secular state when judged according to the religion of Islam? Is it Halal (permissible) or Haram (prohibited) for Muslims to vote in elections of the modern secular state? This essay attempts to answer those questions.

A US-based Egyptian Islamic scholar declared in a widely circulated Fatwa (legal opinion) that it is Wajib (compulsory) for Muslims to vote in elections of the modern secular state such as USA. The preposterous implication of that Fatwa would be such that if Muslims were to refrain from voting in such elections they would have committed a sin!

On the other hand the outstanding Pakistani Islamic scholar, Dr. Israr Ahmad, has categorically declared that it is Haram for a Muslim to participate in the electoral politics of the modern secular state (i.e., the state which is established on the basis of a secular constitution). He has prohibited all members of Tanzeem-e-Islami, the Jama’at (community) of which he is the Amir (leader), from voting in elections of the secular state. He also disclosed that Maulana Maududi (rahimahullah), who took a stand in favor of participating in electoral politics, subsequently changed his position before his death and opposed such participation.

Islam and Constitutional Democracy Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
Sunday, 22 Rajab 1428
Dr. Morgan Job has questioned our continuing failure, as Muslims, to establish constitutional democracy in the Muslim world (Conference on Constitutional Reform, November 28th 2004). But modern political democracy originated in modern secular western civilization, and required the adoption of political secularism as the basis for the establishment of polity and state. Political secularism, however, like all other applications of secularism, denied religion any significant role in the public order. This, in turn, facilitated the decline of religion and of absolute moral values, and has led, around the world, to the emergence of ever-changing materialistic values and, eventually, to an essentially godless way of life.

“The old order changeth – yielding place to new – and God fulfills Himself in many ways . . .”
Alfred Lord Tennyson, ‘Morte d’Arthur’

 

OPPORTUNITY

Our view is that a fast-collapsing Trinidad and Tobago has a once-in-a-lifetime chance for an unjust and decadent old order to be changed into a new order based on truth, freedom and justice and, in the process, for God to fulfill Himself in this land. We recognize constitutional reform to be the basic vehicle for effecting such necessary change. The time to act is now! Let us hearken to Shakespeare’s warning: “There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; omitted, all the voyage of their lives is bound in shallows and in miseries.”

An Islamic Response to Legalized Abortion Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
Sunday, 22 Rajab 1428
Allah Most High has prohibited the killing of children (both born and unborn) when such is resorted to for no just cause. It is indeed a very great sin. But an essentially godless age has shown no concern whatsoever for the Word of Allah Most High. In fact this age is experiencing something more sinister than disregard for the Word of Allah since, whatever He declared to be Haram (i.e., prohibited), the modern godless age has proceeded to legalize (i.e., to declare to be Halal or permitted). Gambling, for example, has been elevated to such respectability that governments around the world now organise state-sponsored lottery. And so what we now face is not just godlessness, but rather, a war on the religious way of life! It is in this context that we must examine the effort to legalize abortion.

A Muslim Response to Anti-Terrorism Legislation Print E-mail

In the summer of 2002 . . . I had a meeting with a senior adviser to Bush. He told me something that at the time I didn’t fully comprehend—but which I now believe gets to the very heart of the Bush presidency. The aide said that guys like me were ‘‘in what we call the reality-based community,’’ which he defined as people who ‘‘believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.’’ I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. ‘‘That’s not the way the world really works anymore,’’ he continued. ‘‘We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously as you will— we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.’’

“Without a Doubt ,” Ron Suskind, New York Times Magazine, Oct. 17, 2004


We are now living through the dismantling of ‘political democracy’. Massa (i.e., the European slave-master who abolished his African slave trade when it was no longer convenient for him to be overtly identified with slavery) first gave that democracy to the world as part of his globalization plan for the political unification of all of the different peoples of the world. Massa is now imposing anti-terrorism legislation upon the governments who are supposed to control the peoples of the world on Massa’s behalf. It is but a part of the over-all strategy through which he seeks to modify democratic freedom in a secular democracy so as to eventually pave the way for him to impose upon mankind a universal messianic dictatorship.

Boothill’s Tribal Democracy Print E-mail

Wednesday, 17 Rajab 1428

He asked, “Are you a Muslim or a terrorist?” I was talking with a group of villagers, all Africans, while sitting under the tent erected outside a home in Boot Hill when a young Indian man joined us and posed that question to me. It could have been a deliberate and maliciously conceived act of grave provocation or, perhaps, it was nothing more than the frivolity of one who turned in worship in the direction of Washington. But the villagers responded to the question with fury. They insisted that it was an insult, and that I should not answer the question. Instead they demanded that the young man apologize for his insult, and they persisted until he eventually apologized to me. That was a taste of Boot Hill’s tribal democracy that brooks no tribal injustice. Politicians and political scientists of this country would do well to study Boot Hill’s tribal democracy.

I went back to Boot Hill (a nickname for St. Thomas Village, Chaguanas, in my native island of Trinidad), my childhood hometown, to offer my sympathies to Kenneth Valley whose son had been shot and killed two days earlier in the nearby village of Felicity. It was a killing that provoked significant tribal protest from Boot Hill’s African villagers that quickly erupted in dangerous street demonstrations. It even provoked acts of violence against Felicity villagers. Some of them were beaten and a vehicle was destroyed.

Felicity is tribally homogeneous with the overwhelming majority of residents being Indian and Hindu. And while the shooting death in Felicity of the young African from Boot Hill may not have been caused by race, it certainly provoked a violent racial response. Indeed I fear that the die has, perhaps, been cast, and that the dangerous new stage now reached in tribal rivalry can eventually include the entire country in a fatal grip. Hence this timely essay!

Will Israel Attack Iran Print E-mail
Articles - Islam and Politics
Wednesday, 10 Rajab 1428

They are a people whose wickedness and godlessness are without parallel in history. Yet they succeed in constantly replicating themselves amongst the peoples of the world, who then become the people of Gog and Magog. They started with the medieval crusades, which were so-called holy wars that Europe fought against Islam. And now, in the last stage of their unholy mission, they threaten to wage war on Iran in order to steal, in broad daylight, Iran’s oil and gas.

Their mastermind, who is both an imposter and an evil genious, creates diversions to mask their wicked deeds, and to divert attention from his ominously unfolding master-plan to eventually rule the world from Jerusalem, and to then declare himself to be the true Messiah. He seeks to mask this evil attack on Iran by resorting to the greatest diversions of all, namely the nuclear ‘scarecrow’, the utterly despicable cartoons of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah Most High be upon him), nauseating photographs depicting sexual abuse of Iraqi Muslims detained by the US occupation forces in Iraq, and the destruction of the golden-domed Masjid al-Askariyah and sacred Shia shrine in Iraq.

But they cannot defeat the Prophet’s religion since Allah Most High will answer the prayer of Jesus, the true Messiah (peace and blessings of Allah Most High be upon him as well), when he returns, and destroy them. They cannot silence even Nelson Mandela and Harry Belafonte who continue to courageously denounce them for their terrorism, arrogance and evil deeds.

Explaining Israel's Mysterious Imperial Agenda Print E-mail

When Harry Belafonte declared that US President George W. Bush was “the world’s greatest terrorist”, it was clear that while he had not studied the subject sufficiently, since that notorious distinction belongs to Israel and not to Bush, he certainly showed greater understanding of the subject and more courage than most politicians and leaders today.

But Israel has another unique distinction that continuously escapes the attention of scribes, scholars and politicians. It is the only state in the world that has continuously waged unjust war with disdain for ‘gentile’ opinion, and even escalate its warfare while rendering the rest of the world powerless to do anything tangible to prevent it.

The rest of the world, that is, except Islam!

 Extracted from the Book - One Ameer, One Jama'ah by Imran N. Hosein (c) 1997

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds, the Compassionate, the Merciful. And may Peace and Blessings of Allah (SWT) be bestowed on His unlettered Prophet, Muhammad (SAW), who was sent by Almighty Allah (SWT) with Al-Huda (the Divine Guidance) and Deen Al-Haq (the way of life which is established on Divinely Revealed Truth) that it might prevail over the totality of life, private as well as public, life here as well as life hereafter. Its basic function in respect of life in this world is to be a force for liberation of mankind from oppression. And its basic function in respect of life hereafter is to be the means of salvation and fulfillment of the very purpose of life. Allah, Most High, also sent Deen Al-Haq so that it might prevail over all rivals. All these functions of Deen Al-Haq were fulfilled in the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad (SAW). And after the death of the Prophet (SAW), the noble struggle and mission of ensuring that all the functions of Deen Al-Haq continue to be fulfilled, now devolved upon the Ummah.

            Allah, Most High, emphatically declared to the believers that the life (i.e., the Sunnah) of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is a perfect concrete model for them to follow if they are to attain salvation and the fulfillment of the purpose of life hereafter, and if they are to succeed with their mission in this life:

Certainly you have in (the life) of the Messenger of Allah a beautiful model (of conduct) for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day (i.e., who looks with hope to Allah and to the Final Day) and who engages much in the remembrance of Allah (Al-Ahzab 33:21).

A Muslim View of Venezuela's Oil Diplomacy the US dollar and the Free Market Print E-mail

It would be a mistake if the Government of Trinidad & Tobago were to respond to Venezuela's 'Petrocaribe' oil initiative from a limited commercial perspective, and fail to measure the long-term moral, political and security costs to this country if we were to stay out of the regional oil alliance. 

As we study an alliance for subsidized oil that has already been embraced by the Caribbean (except Barbados), and which can only increase in regional importance as the price of oil continues is mysterious ascent, we should look carefully at our strategic environment in which Venezuela's geographic proximity to this country features prominently. We should also weigh with equal care the obvious benefits for us and for the rest of the Caribbean if we were to patiently forge with Venezuela a mutually beneficial partnership role as producers and suppliers of oil for the Caribbean.
