Why Abdullah bin Hamid Ali of Zaytuna College Cannot Teach Black People Islam

Hakeem Muhammad

Within the broader African-American community, Black Muslims were once renowned and respected for uplifting their communities. African-Americans took a leadership role in the struggle against white supremacy. The term “uncle tom, Black Muslim” would have been seen as an oxymoron in the days of Malcolm X. It was the ability of Black Muslims to make Islam speak to the most oppressed Black communities that accounts for Islam’s rapid influence and growth in Black America. Unfortunately, today there are elements in the Muslim community who are seeking to impugn this legacy.

Zaytuna College is the first accredited Muslim undergraduate college in the United States. It was collectively founded by Hamza Yusuf, Imam Zaid Shakir, and Hatem Bazian.  In 2016, Hamza Yusuf blatantly disrespected African-American Muslims by denying systemic racism in America’s police forces and declaring that the breakdown of the Black family and not institutional racism was the true problem facing…

The Usage of the Homosexual-Agenda against Muslims

Standard

20190712_013316

Author’s-Note:

This is based on a Pro-Homo Article, attempting to pontificate/promote a Pseudo-Narrative, claiming that al-Lawāt/Homosexuality is from al-Islām. This Pseudo-Narrative is the Argument used within this Article:

The secret gay history of Islam

There’s Several-Things incredibly wrong with this Article…yes, I’m going to highlight all this Agenda.

The Entire-Title & the Entire-Article is purposely Religio-Historically Untrue/Dishonest:

1. al-Islām predates the World’s 1st-Homosexuals: the People of Lot. Moreover, there were 4-Reasons as per how/why the People of Lot were Destroyed:

a. They committed ash-Shirk/Association (Ascription of Sifāt [Characteristics/Qualities] attributed to Allah not predicated upon at-Tanzīl/Revelation [The Qur’ān & the Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition]) via Idol-Worship.

b. They were the 1st-Humans to initiate al-Lawāt. Moreover, via at-Tanzīl/Revelation: it’s clearly detailed that the Men amongst the People of Lot chose to have Consenual Homesxual-Intercourse with one another. And, Allah states Directly that the Men from the People of Lot chose/prefered Men instead of Women. So, for those whom claim that Homosexuality only existed amongst the People of Lot via Rape: those Persons are clearly Pathologically-Ignorant, as per Revelatory/Islāmic-Texts. Them & People like them are methodically & deliberately Textually-Untrue/Dishonest.(at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Kathīr)

c. They were the 1st-Humans to commit Gang-Rape.

d. They were the 1st-Humans to commit Highway-Robbery/Human-Trafficking.

(at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Kathīr)

2. There’s no such Thing as “Gay History of Islam”. There’s a History of Muslims (relative to the Revelation of The Qur’ān) whom were/are in fact Homosexuals.

3. This is literally nothing more than a Pathetic-Attempt to justify al-Fusūq/Sinning, as Muhammad (Peace be upon him) stated, “Verily, the Action of the People of Lot is what I fear for my Nation the most.”.
(al-Kabā’ir/The Major-Sins, adh-Dhahabī)

4. There’s detailed Hudūd/Islāmic-Punishments for al-Lawāt:

a. Male-Male/Anal Sex is automatically Punishable via Death-Penalty, unless it’s Proven that the Dominated-Person was/is a Victim of Rape, Child-Molestation, etc.

b. Female-Female Sex is Punishable based upon Marital/Non-Marital Status, unless it’s Proven that the Dominated-Person was/is a Victim of Rape, Chil-Molestation, etc.

(al-Kabā’ir)

This is simply at-Tahrīf: (Religio-Textual/Religio-Historical) Distirtion, to attempt to normalize al-Lawāt to Muslims, and sadly: Muslims whom’re Religio-Ignorant, Ego/Desire-Driven, etc. fold under the Pro-Homo Pressure. This is one of the Prophecies of Muhammad (Peace be upon him), when he warned us that his Nation is secure/safe from the Wrath of Allah, unless/until they become al-Mujāhirīn/Shameless. When the Companions present (May Allah be pleased with them) asked him whom al-Mujāhirūn are, he stated that they are those whom sin without: Reservation, Consequence, etc.(al-Bukhārī) Clearly, this is Article is 💯% Agenda-Driven, to pontificate, proliferate Sinning. The Fact that there’s such a Desperate-Agenda to seduce Muslims, to turn them out towards al-Lawāt, thus proves how much Insecurity the Proponents of al-Lawāt are actually operating with/from.

Articles, Writings, Postures, etc. such as this one confirms that this is why Muslims must (at All-Times) be Religio-Knowledgeable, as well as Socio-Politically-Knowledgeable, pertaining to what al-Islām allows, prohibits, etc. & how the Enemies of al-Islām work Nite&Day to attempt to lead Muslums astray.

Saudi Arabia’s Religio-Hypocritial Love-Hate Relationship with Music.

Standard

img_20190710_171953_322It’s Patheitically-Ironic, that in a Nation-State whose Religious-Elite are so Hardline against Musical-Entertainment: Saudi Arabia not only has Music-Concerts within KSA, but also is Home to some of the Most-Popular Music-Artists in the History of the Muslim-World as well as the Arab-World, like Muhammad `Abduh for example (not to be confused with the Founder of Salafism in the 1860’s, C.E. of the Same-Name). However, within the Same-Breath: there’s Fatāwā/Religio-Rulings after Fatāwā as per the Islāmic-Prohibitions regarding Musical-Instruments, Musical-Lyrics, Musical-Genres, etc. & ironically the same Musical-Artists within the Realm of the Saudi-Kingdom pontificate/promote the exact Same-Kinds/Types of Music which is condemned via the Saudi Religio-Elite.

Some very important Facts to note, by the Way:

a. Music, via its Entirety, inherently isn’t Mahrūm/Islāmically-Prohibited.

b. The Term which are used via at-Tanzīl/Revelation (The Qur’ān & the Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition) to describe the Prohibited-Elements of Music: al-Ma`āzif itself is too often mistranslated as “Music-Holistically/Musical-Instruments Holistically”.

c. The Correct-Meaning/Translation of al-Maāzif is “Instruments of Evil” & more specifically, via at-Tanzīl is “Woodwind/Stringed-Instruments”.(al-Bukhārī, Abū-Dāwud)

d. There’s a Known-Instrument know as ad-Daff: an Arab-Drum…ironically, ad-Daff is Mahlūl/Islāmically-Allowed & by definition it’s literally a Musical-Instrument. So, obviously, Islāmically: there’s absolutely no Way that all Music/Musical-Elements are Mahrūm.(al-Bukhārī, Muslim, Lisān-ul-Arab: Lexicon of the Arabic-Language, ibn-Manzhūr)

Saudi Arabia, just on the Issue of Music itself, is 💯%-Guilty of spreading Cultural-Colonization. Basically, their Premise is to indoctrinate the Entire Muslim-World to conform to their own valid Individual-Urfiyyah. And, of course: the Best-Way to pull this off is to disguise Arabism with the Cloak of al-Islām. In spite of the Fact that al-Islām is a Dīn/Religio-Spiritual Lifestyle & not an Urf/Culture, KSA readily attempts to lay Claim to al-Islām, as though it’s their Personal-Property, which clearly it’s not. And, because of the Fact that Salafism particularly, unique to any/all other Ahzāb (Sectarian/Deviant-Groups) amongst Muslims, the Religio-Puritanical Postures which is pontificated/promoted via Salafism pushes a very Ugly-Precedent/Agenda that if it comes out of/from Saudi, that if Saudi allows it, if Saudi co-signs/supports it, then it’s All-Good.

This includes:

a. Squandering the Wealth of the Muslims (Petroleum which is the Only-Reason as to how/why KSA & the other Gulf-States even matter to the World at all).

b. Collusion with Non-Muslim/Western Powers against Muslim-Countries/Governments, Muslim-Leaders, etc. (in spite of their Hypocritical-Kalām/Rhetoric concerning “Patience&Obedience in regards to Muslim-Leadership/Rulership).(Nawāqidh-ul-Islām/Nullifications of al-Islām, Muhammad ibn-`Abd-il-Wahhāb)

The Psychology Of Islāmophobia

Standard

img_20190709_123113_022

Ever since the Time of Noah (Peace be upon him), being commanded by Allah to confront the 1st Non-Muslims in Human-History: Humanity has always been corrupted via Islāmophobia.(at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Kathīr) However, as per the Modern-World: more than at any Time-Period within Human-History, we’re 💯% enthralled Knee-Deep in the Indulgence of Islāmophobia (Hatred towards/against anything/everything related to the Dīn/Lifestyle of al-Islām). And, because of this, Muslims have been globally pinned against the Wall. Pathological-Fears, which are either Self-Imposed or Socio-Politically Imposed, have tantamount Negative-Effects pertaining to what Muslims think/how we feel about ourselves & Others. Islāmophobia has established Intrapersonal&Interpersonal Inferiority-Complexes within the Minds&Hearts of Muslims worldwide.

[Video] White supremacist shot and killed in attempted racist attack on Black man at Waffle House restaurant

Standard

#WhiteSupremacy is an Evil…it must be crushed, so that All-Men can live free.

Ft. Myers, Florida

A group of drunk, racist white men entered a Fort Myers, Florida Waffle House restaurant and began hurling racial slurs at two men of color, Jehrardd Williams and Jorge Henrandez, who were sitting at the restaurant counter.

A video of the encounter shows Williams and Hernandez take notice of the shouts, but calmly try to finish their meals as the group of white supremacists walked towards them. One of the white racist men, Robert Black can be seen on surveillance video attempting to shake hands with Williams and Hernandez, but when Jehrardd Williams refused to shake hands, Black throws a punch prompting Williams to pull out his gun.

At this point, one of the racists who had already exited the restaurant, Dakota Fields comes charging back in the restaurant to attack Williams. Obviously unaware that Williams was carrying a gun, Fields attempts to tackle Williams but instead gets…
