“And never let your hatred, against any People, prevent you from behaving justly.” (Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.5, V.8)

“The Worst-Person with Allah is he whom kills those whom never even fought them back.” (Ahmad)

These 2 Revelatory-Texts are the Premise of my Article, discussing the Ugliness of Islāmophobia via the Media, Courtesy of the New York Post:

https://nypost.com/2020/04/04/nyc-firefighter-gets-coronavirus-after-teen-sneezes-on-him/

Omar Sattar: FDNY-Personnel, Firefighter, was attacked by Boro Park Youth, in Brooklyn, NY. He was purposely sneezed-on after attempting to regulate Social-Distancing in lieu of the Covid19 Global Health-Crisis which has hit the United States very hard, NYC particularly/especially since NYC is the most Congested-City in the US. So, sadly Omar Sattar tested Covid19+. The Media reported that it’s unconfirmed whether or not he contracted Covid19 via that Sneezing-Attack imposed upon him. Well, honestly that’s not even the Point…the Point is that this Sneeze-Attack was not only Inhumanely-Disgusting, but also Incredibly-Dangerous. Ironically, this isn’t the Worst-Part though.

The NYPost: notorious for its Discriminatory-Tirades (Islāmophobia, Xenophobia, etc.) instead of focusing on the Disgusting-Behavior of these Persons whom literally placed the Health/Life of a Fellow-Human, a Civil-Servant, at Risk they pinpointed the Sordid-Past of his Father Ahmed Sattar. Ahmed Sattar was implicated, prosecuted, sentenced, etc. as per Involvement in the 1993 WTC-Bombing. However, this literally has nothing to do with Omar Sattar. The NYPost, of course, made it about Ahmed Sattar.

This was exclusively done to deflect from the Fact that those responsible for this Heinous-Act were Jewish & that Omar Sattar is a Muslim, who’s also the Son of a Muslim comvicted of Terrorism. Basically, the NYPost articulated their Article this Way methodically, to erase the Humanity of the Victim because he’s a Muslim & to give the Criminals a Pass because they’re Non-Muslims (Jewish specifically). It’s almost as if the NYPost had presented this Story as though Omar Sattar had deserved to be attacked, as if somehow this Attack was Retribution for the Crimes which his Father was comvicted for. It’s obvious that had this been the Other-Way Around this would’ve been broadcasted via every News-Outlet, every Newspaper, every TV-News Segment, every Talk-Show, etc. There would’ve been Calls-Of-Action made against the Sneeze-Attackers, claiming “Anti-Semitism” & we all know that this is 💯%-Truth/Honesty. However, since it is what it is, clearly little to nothing will probably be done about this, in spite of the Fact that one of “New York’s Bravest” was so viciously & cowardly attacked, resulting in his Health/Life being put in Danger.

Well…that’s Jew York City for you.

Roe vs. Wade: the Person behind the Case & the Irreversable-Damage they caused

Standard

img_20191128_145746_997

Norma Leah Nelson AKA “JaneRoe”, the Political-Centerpiece behind Roe vs. Wade, which federally legalized Abortion in the UnitedStates via the US Supreme-Court: she admitted that she lied about being Raped by a Group of Afro-Americans. This Untruth/Slander predicated upon al-`Asabiyyah/Xenophobia, though unsuccessful, was still enough Ammunition used to propel the Pro-Choice Movement, backed by Feminism. Also, Roe vs. Wade literally made it Federally-Legal in the US to weaponize Abortion, as a Tool for/of Population-Control via Eugenics.

Abortion-Stats in the US Post Roe vs. Wade-

Persons who’ve been aborted since Roe vs. Wade was made Federally-Legsl via the US Supreme-Court. This Stat accounts for the Equivalent to nearly 1/3 of the current US-Population:

This Stat shows the Increase/Decrease of Abortions within the United States, from 1973-2014, C.E.:

20191128_182548

2014, C.E. was the 1st-Year, since the 1973, C.E., when Abortion-Rates within the United States didn’t reach 1Million annually.

The Stats speak for themselves. Now, let’s take a Look at which US-Demographics are targetted mostly via Abortion.

Abortion in the US via Ethno-Demographics-

This Stat details Specific-Percentages of Abortion-Rates amongst Afro-Americans, in comparison/contrast with other Ethno-Demographics:

Ironically: much like Prison-Population Rates amongst Afro-Americans, likewise, Abortion-Rates also turn spiked & have remained nearly at the Same-Rates since the 1970’s, C.E.:

So, in Conclusion: this is the Damage which Roe vs. Wade has done. Y’all better wake-up.

China’s Silk-Road of Blood

Standard

img_20191128_151546_337

This is exactly why the Chinese-Government is oppressing the Uyghur-People, whom’re mostly Muslims, in XinJiang/East Turmenistan. China wants to extend its Global-Reach enomically “By Hook or by Crook”. And, Northwestern-China is literally in the Middle of the Historical Silk-Road. Because of this being the most important Juncture-Point of the Silk-Road, China is willing to bring Destruction to anyone/anything within its Path of Financial-Dominance within the World. This is coupled with the Fact that China is competing to surpass the Western-World economically. All of the Atrocities mentioned about the Chinese “Reeducation-Camps”, the Forced-Relationships governmentally imposed between Non-Muslim/Han Chinese-Men & Muslim/Uyghur-Women are 💯%-True. However, there’s still Muslim-Governments whom still allign themselves with China. And, as Voltaire once stated, “When it come to Wealth everyone is of the Same-Religion.”. I tell People all the Time, “You don’t have to be a Non-Muslim to be an Islāmophobe.”. And, the Fact that Muslim-Governments support China, in spite of these Atrocities against Fellow-Muslims thus proves this undoubtedly.

The Anatomy of Abuse/Oppression

Standard

Author’s-Note:

This Article is deemed to expose the Reality of the Non-Islāmic Nature of Abuse, via any & all Manifestations/Forms. The Focus of this Article, however, is actually Domestic-Abuse & how/why Muslims particularly, whom still either pretend that it doesn’t exists amongst us, or whom still attempt to justify it.

1. What is Abuse?

Abuse-

A Corrupt-Practice/Custom; Improper/Excessive-Treatment; Language that condemns or vilifies (usually/almost always unjustly), intemperately and angrily; Physical-Maltreatment; a Deceitful-Act.(Merriam-Webster)

Abuse is akin to the Word azh-Zhulm/Oppression.

2. What is Oppression?

Oppression-

Unjust/Cruel-Exercise of Authority/Power; a Sense of being weighed-down in: Spirit, Mind/Heart, Body, etc.(Merriam-Webster)

azh-Zhulm-

Darkness, Ignorance, Arrogance: violating the Boundaries/Rights which Allah has set forth to be respected/observed.(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.18, V.1-6/V.32-42; an-Nawawī; Lisān-ul-`Arab: Lexicon of the Arabic-Language)

3. Who’s an Abuser/Abused?

An Abuser can be anyone, with the Capability/Potential to commit Abuse. An Abused-Person can be anyone, who doesn’t possess the Capacity/Potential, Willingness, etc. to resist Abuse.

20191107_112848

4. How/why does Abuse begin?

There’s no Direct/Explicit-Answer: what’s True/Honest is that Abuse, almost always, never has 1-Cause only but Several/Many-Causes.

5. What are the Types of Abuse?

Holistically, any/all Manifestations of Abuse fall under the Following-Categories*:

a. Spiritual-Abuse

b. Psycho-Emotional Abuse

c. Primal-Abuse

(*The Violation of Maslow’s Hierarchy Of Needs…See: Maslow’s Hierarchy Of Needs)

20191107_112828

  1. Revelatory-Texts which’re misunderstood/misinterpreted, manipulated, etc. to attempt to justify Abuse (Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.4, V.34):

20191107_112810

  1. Revelatory-Texts which affirm/confirm the Islāmic-Prohibition of Abuse:

20191107_112746

20191107_112704-1

20191107_112633-2

Now, in spite of the Fact that these Texts clearly indicate the Prohibitory-Nature of Abuse, it still occurs amongst us. The Question is how/why. 

There’s Several-Reasons as per how/why this is the Case:

a. Denial of the Reality that one is an Abuser.

b. Refusal to recognize/accept that Abuse affects the Abuse just as much as the Abused.

c. Deflection of the Pain endured by the Abuse via Abuse.

c. Blame of Abuse upon the Abused, instead of upon the Abuser.

Moment of Abuse-Truth:

1. When’s the Last-Time you were confronted with someone whom you know facing Domestic-Abuse?

2. When’s the Last-Time, if ever, that Domestic-Abuse affected you personally?

3. When’s the Last-Time that you actually helped any Person dealing with Domestic-Abuse?

4. When’s the Last-Time that you gave someone a Pass for committing Domestic-Abuse, because you’re Friends with that Person or were too afraid to confront them about it?

5. When’s the Last-Time which you’ve actually, honestly, even care about the Issue of Domestic-Abuse?

The Islāmic-Justification to rebel against Toxic-Leadership

Standard

Author’s-Note:

Historically (even prior to the Revelation of The Qur’ān), and especially contemporaneously (via the Collapse of the Ottoman-Empire), there’s frequently been this Kalām/Rhetoric amongst Elitists to retain/preserve their Powers of Populaces. With this being said, Muslim-Elites are clearly no different from our Non-Muslim Counterparts. However, unlike Non-Muslins: Muslims Past&Present, Pre-Qur’ān & Post-Qur’ān, etc. have continuously attempted to misuse at-Tanzīl/Revelation, Muslim Religio-Scholars, Islāmic-Concepts (like Waliyy-ul-Amr/Loyalty of Authority pertaining to Muslim-Leaders/Rulers) & so on to attempt to justify their Oppression against Others. And, it’s done in such Ways exclusively to preserve their Self-Serving Authoritarian-Control. Fortunately, for us though, in spite of their Oppressive-Tactics to attempt to convince Populaces that regardless of their Oporession that they’re entitled to receiving Respect, Loyalty, Obedience, etc. there exists Revelation to debunk any, every, all Things which Oppressive-Leaders/Rulers stand for. The following applies to any/all Manifestations, Forms, Degrees of al-Imārah (Leadership/Rulership) by the way.

20190923_021242

یَـٰۤأَیُّهَا ٱلَّذِینَ ءَامَنُوۤا۟ أَطِیعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِیعُوا۟ ٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُو۟لِی  ٱلۡأَمۡرِ مِنكُمۡۖ فَإِن تَنَـٰزَعۡتُمۡ فِی شَیۡءࣲ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ وَٱلرَّسُولِ إِن كُنتُمۡ تُؤۡمِنُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلۡیَوۡمِ ٱلۡـَٔاخِرِۚ ذَ ٰ⁠لِكَ خَیۡرࣱ وَأَحۡسَنُ تَأۡوِیلًا

“Those whom believe pay attention: obey Allah & the Messenger, as well as the Possessors of Authority amongst you. If you differ, concerning anything, then refer to Allah & the Messenger, providing you believe in Allah & the Last-Day. That’s best & a most excellent Conclusion.”(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.4, V.59)

وَٱقۡتُلُوهُمۡ حَیۡثُ ثَقِفۡتُمُوهُمۡ وَأَخۡرِجُوهُم مِّنۡ حَیۡثُ أَخۡرَجُوكُمۡۚ وَٱلۡفِتۡنَةُ أَشَدُّ مِنَ ٱلۡقَتۡلِۚ وَلَا تُقَـٰتِلُوهُمۡ عِندَ ٱلۡمَسۡجِدِ ٱلۡحَرَامِ حَتَّىٰ یُقَـٰتِلُوكُمۡ فِیهِۖ فَإِن قَـٰتَلُوكُمۡ فَٱقۡتُلُوهُمۡۗ كَذَ ٰ⁠لِكَ جَزَاۤءُ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرِینَ

“And combat them wherever you find them & expel them wherever they expelled you. And, Drama/Oppression is worse than Killing/Slaughter. But, don’t combat them within the Sacred-Mosque, unless you’re combated within it. So, combat them, if they combat you. Such is the Retribution of the Disbelievers.”(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.2, V.191)

`Abdullah ibn-`Uthmān ibn-`Āmir/Abū-Bakr as-Siddīq (May Allah be pleased with him), after the Death of Muhammad (Peace be upon him), assumed al-Imārah over the Muslims. Upon that, he publicly stated, “I have been granted Authority over you, in spite of not being the Best from amongst you. If I do well, then help me. But, if I error, then correct me. Empathy for Truth is Loyalty, whereas Apathy for Truth is Treachery. The Weak amongst you shall be Strong to/with me, unless/until I have secured/restored his Rights, if Allah wills. And the Strong amongst you shall be Weak to/with me, unless/until I’ve seized from him the Rights of Others, if Allah wills. So, obey me, so long as I obey Allah & His Messenger. But, if I disobey Allah & His Messenger, then you owe me no Obedience. Arise for your prayer: may Allah mercify you.”.(az-Zuhrī, ibn-Ishāq, ibn-Hishām, at-Tabarī, at-Tabarānī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Sa`d, al-Wāqidī, ibn-Kathīr, Martin Lings)

Now, please, keep in Mind that Abū-Bakr is Unanimously-Recognized amongst the Scholars of the Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition as being the Best/Number-1 Companion of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) & the Most-Senior amongst all of his Companion-Peers (May Allah be pleased with them altogether)…this is what he stated concerning about his own Self, his own Imārah over the Muslims. So, upon that, whom’re we to posture as though we’re somehow Entitled to Imārah and/or Entitled to oppress via our Imārah without Consequence?!!! So, just know: it honestly really doesn’t matter which Muslim-Leader/Ruler, Muslim Religio-Scholar, egc. attempts to make you think/feel that you must obey them regardless of how they are. This “Be Patient with/Obedient to the Muslim-Leader/Ruler” Rhetoric only emboldens Oppressors to remain Oppressors. Basically, this Rhetoric spewed by Oppressors is like imposing Stockholm-Syndrome upon People: when the Oppressed begin to not only tolerate/accept Oppression, but also defend the Oppressor. And, that’s exactly what’s been happening within the Muslim-World for a Long-Time. Ironically, these Same-Oppressors command their Muslim Religio-Scholars to spew this Stockholm-Syndrome to their Populaces/Citizenry, merely because they don’t want what their Geo-Political Ancestors did to occur to them: pertaining to al-Kharajiyyah/Rebellion against the Ottoman-Empire for example, when the Muslim-Arabs assisted Non-Muslim Powers to fight against Fellow-Muslims, in the Name of al-`Asabiyyah/Xenophobia.(See: https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2013/12/06/hujjahagainstsaudiarabia)

As per my Conclusion: don’t ever let anyone tell you to not, that you shouldn’t/can’t, that it’s Sinful to rebel against Oppression.

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.

Being Black In Britain: The Casualties Of The Windrush-Policy & Brexit

Standard

20190401_001010

My Travels via the United Kingdom, the 1st-Time I’ve traveled externally of the United States since 2006, C.E. & my 1st-Traveling within Europe, has given me a Significant Contrasting-Lens to view how Things like: Islāmophobia, Xenophobia, etc. really play-out throughout the UK. Being Visibly-Muslim & African-Descent in the UK is still, I’m sure, is viewed as an Exotically-Foreign Commodity…being African-Descent not so much. However, Opposition to both al-Islām & Blackness may very well be of Equal-Par. Even as I explored the UK for myself, I has met with a Tense-Sense of: Xenophobia, Otherism…I saw it within People’s Faces, I felt it from their Vibes…this was just about anywhere/everywhere that I went-It was extremely: Subtle, Covert, Indirect, Clandestine, etc. But, I knew it when it came my Way, as it approached me. The British, from what I’ve observed possess very Sly-Ways of throwing Shade in the most Sophisticated-Ways, which kind of explains why there’s so much Sarcasm wirhin British-Humor/Comedy.

The UK particularly, not only fully expresses Disdain towards the Other, but even amongst their own Ethno-Continental/European Counterparts, there’s this seemingly British-Style Posture of Superiority, Exclusivity, Anti-Inclusion/Acceptance, etc. One of the Things which proved this to me is the Fact that, to my Surprise there were lots of Interethnic/Interracial Couples: Afro-Euro Couples most commonly, within London particularly/especially. However, I constantly observed Euro-Brits stare, glance, scowl, at these Non-Euro Brit Couples and/or Non-Euro Couples period, as if they were plagued with Jungle-Fever. I mean, I literally saw this every Day I was in the UK. One of the most prominent Displays of Exclusivity I observed was when I went to Stonehenge. Stonehenge was/is actually much more significant than I ever really took it for, in Terms of its Purpose: I learned that the Druids who built Stonehenge used that Stone-Complex to commemorate the Celebration of People transitioning from Life to Death: kind of like a Afterlife-Gateway/Portal if you will. So, as one of the Tour-Guides was telling me Extensive-Details regarding Stonehenge, I had asked whether there were older Stone-Complexes than Stonhenge…her resoonse, “Yes, there’s Stone-Structures all over the World.”; then, however, instead of actually mentioning Stone-Structures across the Planet, they only mentioned the Stone-Structures within the UK. By itself, the Statenent is apparently quite innocent. But, as per Context, it’s extremely telling as to how they view themselves as the Center of the Universe & this is also just as evident pertaining to how they’ve historically conquered & governed Others.

Even as per the Brexit-Fiasco unfolded, pertaining to the UK being politically turmoiled as to whether remain with or depart from the European Union, the Discourse concerning Anti-Blackness is very much apparent, in spite of the Macrocosmic-Narrative surrounding Immigration into the UK, which was the Genesis of the Friction between the UK & EU initially. Anti-Blackness, in lieu of Brexit, comes into play directly, resulting from Mass-Deportation of African-Peoples whom were allowed to immigrate to the UK via Post WWII, when most of the West-Indies, the Caribbean, as welk as Places within Africa, etc. were British-Colonies & even today are still (politically/economically) shackled to the UK via the British-Commonwealth. Many/most of these African-Peoples being forcibly deported are People who’ve made their Families, Careers, Lives within the UK: so much so that they basically have no Life external of the UK. As a Result, these Deportees are literally forced to start-over in Nations which they’ve probably haven’t been to in Decades.

Now, let’s explore how/why the UK possesses this Entitled-Posture to treat those whom were once welcomed to contribute to British-Society, yet are now being viewed as “the Other”. Well…let’s take a Look at the Landscape&Scope of Dominance from the Lens of the Victor/Colonizer: the UK, much like it’s other European-Colonial Counterparts, obviously, had and/or has 0-Problem with conquering, exploiting Non-European Peoples around the World, yet ironically are so bothered if/when the Descendants of these Conquered-Peoples make their Way to their Mainlands/Motherlands…ahhhhh, now all of a sudden these People are “2-Close 4 Comfort”?!!!

Whenever you’re the Dominator of any Human-Demographic, particularly/especially if/when you’ve oppressed them, then of course, it makes Sense as to how/why you’d deliberately, purposely/purposefully, methodically, set Social-Political Mechanisms in place to either keep them “in their Place” or to use/drain them of their Potential actualized within your Society & then expel them once donewith them. This is seemingly, most defintely, the Case as per the Climate&Tension surrounding Brexit which is merely yet another Excuse for the UK to put the Lean upon anyone/everyone deemed an “Outsider”, which is simply a Political-Euphemism for Non-Christian/Non-European.

African-Peoples, regadless to where they hail from under the Shadow of the British-Empire (and/or what’s left of it), are simply deemed threatening: not in Terms of Military-Opposition, but more/most importantly, in Terms of them being Historically-Perpetual Reminders of the Fact that the UK as a Global-Power, as well as an Economic-Force, had profitted mightily from Colonization, the Trans-Atlantic Slave-Trade, etc. The Descendants of those whom were oppressed are in many Respects being just as victimized via the Same-Oppressors. So, of course, the greatest Global-Immigration Crisis in Human-History to date-Since the Children of Europe’s Former Colonial-Regions are suffering as per the Proliferation of: Economic-Destitution, Political-Chaos, Religio-Cultural Impossition on Part of European-Powers are now wanting to seek Assylum within Europe’s Borders, then obviously Europe must now “save itself” from being overrun by the Peoples whom have historically/generationally had their Backs broken via the Service of their Colonial-Masters.

And, also, since many of these African-Peoples whom reside within the UK as (Downtrodden, Uneducated, Unskilled) Persons yearing to escape the Poverty & Dead-Ends of their Homelands which were exploited by the UK & whose Hardtimes are mainly the Direct-Result of Colonial-Oppresdion: when they’re too Uneducated to acquire Careers which offer Higher-Standards of Living, when thay’re not Affluent enough to afford Solid-Education leading to Promising Economic-Opportunities, when they can’t afford Private-Properties & must settle for dwelling within the British-Slums which’re Breading-Grounds of/for Criminality, then of course you’re goung to have significant Percentages of these Demographics whom’re: Roadmen/Trapstars, Journeymen/Hustlers, Knifemen/Shooters, Gangsters, etc. & of course Places where these Demographics are mostly concentrated like: London, Glascow, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, York, etc. are going to be Criminalized Hornets-Nests. And, of course, as per the Pseudo-Narrative that the Vast-Majority of British-Crimes are committed by African-Peoples will be readily accepted via the Anglo-Saxon, Welsh, Scottish, Celtic Masses of the UK, allowing themselves to deflect from the Reality that Criminality is never exclusively a Black-Man’s Vice, but rather a Human-Vice.

Instead of actually addressing the Socio-Economic Disenfranchisenent of the UK and/or its Socio-Political Marginalization, Parliament via the Xenophobic Right-Wing Factions of Governence&Government would much rather just point Fingers & shift Blame in a Dishonest-Way. We can/should all agree that there’s 0-Justification to pontificate/proluferate Criminality. At the exact Same-Time though, manipulatiing alarming Crime-Rates also isn’t any Justification to criminalize Human-Demographics & deliberately work towards forcibly expeling/exiling them from the Hone&Life which they’ve made for themselves…what’s being established via this Brexit-Phenomenon is simply an Excuse for the UK, as well as any/all other European-Nations like it to suck People dry of their Personal/Human-Resources for the Good of their Nations, only to repay them with Deportation/Exile, to the exact Same-Places which they once were where these European-Nations have decimated & exploited damn near to Death.
