WAHHABI MOVEMENT
AND THE INJURY TO TRADITIONAL ISLAM.
The Turks had conquered Constantinople, now Istanbul, in 1453, establishing the Ottoman Empire, and had carried out significant expansions into Europe. However, by 1683, the Turks’ campaign against the Europeans was curtailed, when they were decisively defeated in Vienna. The Empire had reached the peak of its expansion. Nevertheless, the Empire continued to command significant amounts of territory, and still held sway in regions where the British colonialism was hoping to expand. Therefore, following their typical strategy of “divide and rule”, the British, through their Masonic agent, sought to undermine the Ottoman Empire from within, by pitting against their own brothers in Islam, the Arabs of the peninsula.

It was not legal in Islam for a Muslim to fight another Muslim. Therefore, in order to rile the Arabs against their Turkish brethren, it was necessary to first create a new interpretation of Islam that would sanction such murder, but under the guise of Jihad. This new interpretation came to be known as Wahhabism, and was founded by British agent, Mohammed Abdul Wahhab.

Mohammed ibn Abdul Wahhab was born in 1703, in the small town in a barren wasteland called Najd, in the eastern part of what is now called Saudi Arabia. Ominously, Mohammed, the prophet of Islam, had already refused to confer blessings on the region, claiming that from it would emerge only “disturbances, disorder and the horns of Satan”. Abdul Wahhab’s father was a chief judge, adhering to the Hanbali school of Islamic jurisprudence, traditionally prevalent in the area. Yet, both he and Abdul Wahhab’s brother, Sulayman, detected signs of doctrinal deviance in him from early on. It was Sulayman who would first come out with a lengthy denunciation of his brother.


Following his early education in Medina, Abdul Wahhab traveled outside of the peninsula, venturing first to Basra. He then went to Baghdad, where he married a wealthy bride and settled down for five years. According to Stephen Schwartz, in The Two Faces of Islam, “some say that during this vagabondage Ibn Abdul Wahhab came into contact with certain Englishmen who encouraged him to personal ambition as well as to a critical attitude about Islam.”[1] Specifically, Mir’at al Harramin, a Turkish work by Ayyub Sabri Pasha, written between 1933 and 1938, states that in Basra, Abdul Wahhab had come into contact with a British spy by the name of Hempher, who “inspired in him the tricks and lies that he had learned from the British Ministry of the Commonwealth.”[2]

The details of this relationship are outlined in a little known document by the name of The Memoirs of Mr. Hempher: A British Spy to the Middle East, said to have been published in series in the German paper Spiegel, and later in a prominent French paper. A Lebanese doctor translated the document to Arabic, from which it was translated to English and other languages. The Memoirs outlines the autobiographical account of Hempher, who claims to have acted as a spy on behalf of the British government, with the mission of seeking ways of undermining the Ottoman Empire. Because, as recorded by Hempher, the two principal concerns of the British government, with regards to its colonies in India, China and the Middle East, were:

  • 1. To try to retain the places we have already obtained;
  • 2. To try to take possession of those places we have not obtained yet. For we are the sort of people who have developed the habit of taking a deep breath and being patient.

Hempher claims to have been one of nine spies sent to the Middle East for such a purpose. He reports, “we were designing long term plans to wage discord, ignorance, poverty, and even diseases in these countries. We were imitating the customs and traditions of these two countries, thus easily concealing our intentions.” The pretext Hempher was offered for his actions was:

We, the English people, have to make mischief and arouse schism in all our colonies in order that we may live in welfare and luxury. Only by means of such instigations will we be able to demolish the Ottoman Empire. Otherwise, how could a nation with a small population bring another nation with a greater population under its sway? Look for the mouth of the chasm with all your might, and get in as soon as you find it. You should know that the Ottoman and Iranian Empires have reached the nadir of their lives.

Therefore, your first duty is to instigate the people against the administration! History has shown that “The source of all sorts of revolutions is public rebellions.” When the unity of Muslims is broken and the common sympathy among them is impaired, their forces will be dissolved and thus we shall easily destroy them.

Prayer :The relationship with God!
By Allama Iqbal


The truth is that all search for knowledge is essentially a form of prayer. The scientific observer of Nature is a kind of mystic seeker in the act of prayer. Although at present he follows only the footprints of the musk-deer, and thus modestly limits the method of his quest, his thirst for knowledge is eventually sure to lead him to the point where the scent of the musk-gland is a better guide than the footprints of the deer. This alone will add to his power over Nature and give him that vision of the total-infinite which philosophy seeks but cannot find. Vision without power does bring moral elevation but cannot give a lasting culture. Power without vision tends to become destructive and inhuman. Both must combine for the spiritual expansion of humanity.

The real object of prayer, however, is better achieved when the act of prayer becomes congregational. The spirit of all true prayer is social. Even the hermit abandons the society of men in the hope of finding, in a solitary abode, the fellowship of God. A congregation is an association of men who, animated by the same aspiration, concentrate themselves on a single object and open up their inner selves to the working of a single impulse. It is a psychological truth that association multiplies the normal man�s power of perception, deepens his emotion, and dynamizes his will to a degree unknown to him in the privacy of his individuality. Indeed, regarded as a psychological phenomenon, prayer is still a mystery; for psychology has not yet discovered the laws relating to the enhancement of human sensibility in a state of association. With Islam, however, this socialization of spiritual illumination through associative prayer is a special point of interest. As we pass from the daily congregational prayer to the annual ceremony round the central mosque of Mecca, you can easily see how the Islamic institution of worship gradually enlarges the sphere of human association.


Prayer, then, whether individual or associative, is an expression of man�s inner yearning for a response in the awful silence of the universe. It is a unique process of discovery whereby the searching ego affirms itself in the very moment of self-negation, and thus discovers its own worth and justification as a dynamic factor in the life of the universe. True to the psychology of mental attitude in prayer, the form of worship in Islam symbolizes both affirmation and negation. Yet, in view of the fact borne out by the experience of the race that prayer, as an inner act, has found expression in a variety of forms, the Qur��n says:

�To every people have We appointed ways of worship which they observe. Therefore let them not dispute this matter with thee, but bid them to thy Lord for thou art on the right way: but if they debate with thee, then say: God best knoweth what ye do! He will judge between you on the Day of Resurrection, as to the matters wherein ye differ� (22:67-69).



Just One

By Anonymous


One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.
One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal
One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey.
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch can show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what's true,

One life can make a difference,
You see, it's up to you!

Don't give in to pretenders!



Something good is happening in the Muslim world. A man with a half-Muslim
parentage will soon take oath as the American President. The Malegaon blasts are
being fairly investigated. Recently, Muslim scholars, activists and clerics got
together and issued fatwas delinking Islam with terror. An 18-coach
Sheikh-ul-Hind Express from Deoband carrying 2,000 clerics set out on a journey
with a message of peace and integration. Some 6,000 clerics from 21 states met
in Hyderabad to issue more fatwas against terror activities. From shock and
denial modes, the Indian Muslim community has begun to introspect and take
positive steps.

Now, a collective body of Muslim clerics has taken another commendable step by
denouncing televangelist Zakir Naik's speeches and demanding a ban on them.
Popular Muslim resentment against Naik became evident last December when he used
the phrase, "May God be pleased with him", for Yezid, the debauch ruler and
murderer of Imam Hussain; the Prophet Mohammed's grandson who was martyred at
the battle of Kerbala. Throughout Islamic history, these particular words have
been used only for the Prophet's trusted companions. Anger has now peaked with
Naik declaring that praying to Prophet Mohammed and seeking his intercession
with God is heresy.

I have been particularly disturbed by the growing popularity of Naik, founder of
Peace TV and president of the Islamic Research Foundation. Naik is not an
Islamic scholar or a cleric and can best be described as a preacher famous for
his computer-like memory of almost all religious scriptures like the Bible, the
Vedas and the Quran.

A doctor by training and inspired by the late India-born South African
evangelist Sheikh Ahmed Deedat, Naik loves to debate with Hindus on the Vedas,
with Jains about vegetarianism and atheists on religion and science. In the garb
of inter-faith dialogues, he not only runs down all major religions, but also
rubbishes as haraam (sinful) all Muslim devotional aspects that differ from his
viewpoint.

In the subcontinent, Islam is the legacy of the Sufis who gave us traditions of
syncretism and communal harmony. By condemning Sufi followers as "grave
worshippers"�, Salafi and Wahabi ideology-inspired speakers such as Naik reject
an entire historical body of Islamic scholarship, jurisprudence and almost 80
per cent of Islamic literature. Naik is on record saying, "If Osama bin Laden is
terrorising America or the enemies of Islam, every Muslim should become a
terrorist."� Excerpts of this video are circulating on the internet, damaging
the already wounded perception of Islam and its followers.

Social injustices cannot be used as a theme to create havoc and destruction in
society. However, some rabid ideologues continue providing fuel to Muslim
animosity by overturning the spirituality of Islam into a rationalised discourse
leading to pragmatic political activism. If Muslims insist that Hindutva
ideologues be quietened, we must do the same with Muslim radicals. Dialogue
within the Muslim community on what form the rightful Islamic traditions should
be has long been overdue. Thankfully, Muslims are now alert, identifying and
rejecting intolerant elements within their own people.

WAR ON IRAN.

Possible Israeli attack against Iran worries EU
ANKARA – 'A possible Israeli strike against Iran is not completely off the radar,' a senior European Union diplomat says. Iran's intention to purchase Russian made S-300s anti-ballistic missiles could push Israel to a quicker offensive, according to diplomats

Possible Israeli attack against Iran worries EU

With the entire world is still celebrating the election of Barack Obama, it may not be the best time for pessimism about the future, such as fears of a possible Israeli attack on Iran in two months.

“A possible Israeli strike against Iran is not completely out of the picture,” a senior European Union diplomat told Turkish media here. “The perfect time (for Israel) is between now and Jan. 20 (Obama’s inauguration day).”

The international community is concerned about Iran’s nuclear program, suspecting Tehran may produce nuclear weapons, which would trigger an arms race in the already unstable region. The diplomat said that while the possibility of an Israeli attack is low, it is clear that when Obama takes up his post on Jan. 20, it will go completely off the agenda. “Israelis would consider a move such as this before Bush and Cheney leave,” the diplomat added.

While Obama, like Bush, wants tougher U.N. sanctions on Iran if it keeps defying demands to suspend enrichment, he said dialogue with foes without preconditions was just as important.

"I will prepare for and engage in direct talks with Tehran to test its intentions," he told the International Atomic Energy Agency according to a Reuters report.

“It's time to stop giving countries like Iran and North Korea an excuse. We need a president who will talk to all nations, friend and foe," he said in a campaign speech earlier.

Several Israeli officials have voiced their uneasiness with Iran’s program, warning Tehran that they will do whatever is necessary, including the use of their military, to eliminate such a threat. Iran responded clearly to this, stating that any attack against its territory would lead to retaliation. For Israel, another major concern is the intention of Iran to buy S-300 anti-ballistic missiles from Russia. “The purchase of these highly developed anti-ballistic missiles will change the strategic balance in the region,” the diplomat said.

With S-300 ballistic missiles, Iran would have an efficient shield to protect itself from Israel’s mid and long-range missiles. Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert visited Moscow recently to express concern over the bargaining between Russia and Iran over the purchase of the S-300s. Olmert asked Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to put a stop to their sale to Iran.

Diplomats say that if diplomatic pressure does not yield results, then Israel could consider destroying Iran’s nuclear facilities before the S-300s are delivered to Iran.

Riots expected in Iran
In any case, any military attack against Iran would not be welcomed by the European Union and other regional countries. From the EU perspective, Obama’s administration’s two priorities will be Iraq and Afghanistan. Iran will rank among the top five issues, but diplomats do not expect any serious move before the end of 2009.

“Meanwhile, international sanctions imposed on Iran have begun to strain the Iranian economy. There could be more serious street riots. There is also going to be elections next year. Hamaney (Iran’s religious leader’s) decision on Ahmedinejad’s candidacy, is not yet known,” the diplomat said.

The EU will present a document, probably next week, from its 27 members to President-elect Barack Obama, underlining Europe’s intention to continue close cooperation with the United States. The document is expected to underline the need for multilateralism and the importance of a coherent global administration.

“Do not behave like Bush did,” will be the EU’s message to Obama, in short.

By 2012 there will be a global rule of Koranic law and spiritual awakening . we should be prepared to this great change in our world.what we should do is only to hold the rope of God [i.e. Koran] and come to love each other as much as possible by giving peace words and help to needy.Coming near to God is a very easy task by loving the creation of God and giving charity to the people who need it.

FINAL MESSAGE

If you do find yourself concerned about 2012 or other spiritual, apocalypse, armageddon, or end-times matters, don't worry. There is nothing to fear and nothing to worry about. The world is not ending and there will be no mass exit. However, the world is changing and consciousness is expanding and there are things you need to know about your expanding abilities and awareness if you are to comfortably navigate and grow with the massive changes now occurring on this earth.
Actually, our present world is upside down. The world that comes after 2012 is right side up because the Beast and the bestial way of life will be destroyed.

2012 is the year when forgiveness would pave way for ruthlessness. The opportunity missed can only be repaid in blood. Humility has been practiced for long... to bring order to the society punishment is the only solution.

A Spiritual Awakening

The path to enlightenment isn't the one most followed by our politicians and leaders. In fact enlightenment or spiritual awakening isn't on their radar screen. It seems as though every nation has it's answers. One would hope that the church would be of help; however, it seems to be wrapped up in providing answers to questions that no one is asking. Eugene Ionesco put it this way, "It is not the answer that enlightens, but the question."

No one seems to be looking at the big picture!

Those who do peer over and past their own geographical boundaries are only doing so to see what others have that they might make theirs. The Middle East is one of the best examples of this principle.

Politics definitely isn't the path to enlightenment or spiritual awakening. Too many politicians think they have all the answers, when it's the deep questions that we really need our poiliticians to ask. Where are the great philosophers of our day? And if we discovered them, would anyone listen?

If we're to succeed in this evolutionary journey to maturity, before we kill each other, we need to find a few!

We need to awaken the spiritual giant within us, awaken our true soul, awaken to the Spirit that is within all of us. ALL! Annamarie Schimmel said, "Once the journey to God is finished, the infinite journey in God begins." On this side of our releasing our physical bodies, the journey is never finsihed and unfortuantely, it's seldom seriously begun by most. The Buddha gets credit for putting it this way, "All things arise and pass away, but the awakend awake forever." Jesus simply said, "Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand." How do we relate to this challenges in our lives, or do we?
