  1. Whoopi Goldberg Questioning Taliban, Hamas Terrorist Status Sparks Anger Story by Jon Jackson • 4h ago Whoopi Goldberg stirred up controversy Tuesday when she seemingly questioned if the Taliban and Hamas are considered terrorist groups by everyone. Her comments have since resulted in angry messages on social media. During Tuesday's episode of The View, Goldberg's co-host Sunny Hostin discussed what she called constant "attacks" by GOP Representative Kevin McCarthy on Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar. At one point, Hostin said Omar has not made remarks about the U.S. and Israel in relation to Afghanistan and Hamas since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked her to apologize for a 2019 tweet that criticized pro-Israel lobbying. Sara Haines, another member of The View's panel, interjected and said Omar compared the U.S. and Israel to the Taliban and Hamas last year. "She has maybe way more knowledge and experience in the very complicated Middle Eastern relations," Haines said. "But I did find that being on a foreign committee and comparing the country to a terrorist, known terrorists, those are organized terrorist communities. Not Israel, but Hamas and the Taliban..." "Depends on who you talk to," Goldberg said. Hostin agreed with Goldberg's remark questioning Haines' "organized terrorist communities" characterization, which has since resulted in tweets that questioned Goldberg's line of thinking. "Who would you like to ask?" wrote one Twitter user. "Terrorist Sympathizers?" Andrew Ghalili, a senior policy analyst at the Jewish Institute for National Security of America, tweeted a similar message, writing that people who disagree about the label being applied to Hamas and the Taliban "are terrorist-sympathizing bigots." The U.S. Department of State classifies Hamas—a militant group and prominent Palestinian political party—as a designated terrorist organization. The Taliban are not listed as such by the State Department, but they have long been accused of violent acts that many people have characterized as falling under the definition of terrorism. "Figures Whoopi would say that, but she would never vacation in a Hamas/Taliban ruled area and feel safe and welcomed," read another tweet. "If she went to Israel she would get treated with respect and feel safe."
  2. CNN FollowView Profile Why Arabs and Muslims feel stung by coverage of the Qatar World Cup Story by Nadeen Ebrahim • 1h ago React1 Comment| 2 “Today I feel Qatari. Today I feel Arab. Today I feel African. Today I feel gay. Today I feel disabled. Today I feel a migrant worker,” FIFA chief Gianni Infantino said in a fiery tirade on Saturday, comparing his own plight as a redhead son of migrants to that of marginalized communities. His ostensible empathy with Qatar was due to the barrage of criticism the nation has faced in Western media for hosting the tournament. But it’s hypocritical of the West to be giving lessons in morality to others, he said. Those statements on the eve of the World Cup went viral, inviting much anger and ridicule. But to many Arabs and Muslims, they resonated strongly. Omar Alsaadi, a 21-year-old Qatari, told CNN that Infantino vocalized “from a Western point of view” what many of his compatriots have felt about being targets of racism. In the run-up to the tournament, Western media coverage has been dominated by the controversies surrounding the event rather than the sport itself, including the Gulf nation’s treatment of migrant workers, its rules on LGBTQ people and its tight social restrictions. Britain’s public broadcaster, the BBC, refrained from airing the opening ceremony on television, opting instead to cover criticism of the host nation. The BBC said it did broadcast the ceremony on their video-on-demand service. This year’s World Cup is certainly like no other before it. It is the first to be held in a Muslim country and Qatar has gone a long way to give the event a distinctly Arab and Muslim flavor. The Bedouin-themed opening ceremony on Sunday began with a female singer donning a traditional burqa, a kind of face covering that has been banned in several European countries. It also cited a verse from the Quran about God creating humanity into “nations and tribes” so they can get to know each other. According to social media reports, some hotel rooms in the country offer visitors QR codes to learn about Islam, and Muslim volunteers have been teaching visitors about Islamic fashion. Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), which is responsible for overseeing the infrastructure projects and planning for the World Cup, didn’t respond to CNN’s request for comment. But in an earlier statement to CNN, the SC said it was committed to “an inclusive and discriminatory-free” World Cup. “Everyone is welcome in Qatar, but we are a conservative country and any public display of affection, regardless of orientation, is frowned upon. We simply ask for people to respect our culture.” The visibility of Islamic symbols in Qatar hasn’t escaped those attending. An on-air joke by a French journalist about the presence of “a lot of mosques” in the country caused outrage among Muslims on social media. Western news outlets have also been accused of peddling stereotypes about Arabs and Muslims. The Times of London on Monday said “Qataris are unaccustomed to seeing women in Western dress in their country” in a photo caption that was later deleted after being flagged on social media. Around 87% of the country’s population of 2.9 million is made up of expatriates, many of whom are Western. “I think that the Western media is biased because they don’t want to see an Arabic success, a Muslim success in the delivering and hosting of a global cup for football in a third [world country],” Najd Al-Mohanadi, a 20-year-old Qatari, told CNN. But some in the Western media have spoken out against stereotyping and alleged biases. Ayman Mohyeldin, an MSNBC host who previously worked for Qatar’s Al Jazeera, said recent coverage of Qatar shows “the depths of Western prejudice, performative moral outrage and, perhaps most significantly, gross double standards.” The Economist and the New York Times have also run articles defending Qatar’s right to host the tournament. The Times of London ran an essay saying criticism of Qatar was “laced with hypocrisy.” “I always question the timing [of the criticism], as migrants throughout the region endure poor living arrangements for meager pay, while also working under strenuous physical and mental conditions,” said Mira Al Hussein, a postdoctoral researcher from the UAE who is studying at Oxford University in England. “Scrutiny is overdue and it makes no sense to tie it to global events where virtue-signaling becomes deeply problematic,” Al Hussein told CNN. “Especially when it comes from non-NGO entities that are themselves embroiled in human rights violations within and across their borders.” James Lynch, director of the human rights group FairSquare and a former British diplomat in Qatar, said that while some of the coverage around Qatar in the West has reinforced negative stereotypes about the Arab Muslim world, most of the criticism has been “fair and proportionate.” “It’s absolutely right to call out instances of that kind of coverage, but wrong to generalize from those examples to imply that all, or most, criticism is driven by racism,” he said. Workers in the country continue to “face harsh, abusive working conditions and severe exploitation, with domestic and construction workers among those most at risk,” he said, adding that Qatar’s women and LGBTQ people “face serious discrimination and repression, both in law and practice.” Critics of Western media coverage of Qatar have countered that other countries with questionable human rights records didn’t receive such scrutiny when hosting global sporting events. “At the risk of engaging in whataboutism… Qatar’s human rights records, as poor as they may be, cannot possibly be more outrageous than other countries, such as Russia, China and Israel,” said Al Hussein. “Qatar is certainly not engaging in ethnic cleansing, nor are migrants living in concentration camps, despite the poor living conditions.” Maryam AlHajri, a Qatari researcher at the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, said some of the recent rhetoric around Qatar shows that some Western critics have been more concerned with feeding into an “orientalist discourse,” referring to language aimed at imposing Western worldviews, than human rights. “This should not be read as a justification to cease criticizing the migrant worker condition in Qatar,” she said. “Rather, it should be interpreted as an argument for the necessity to contextualize the migrant workers situation as part of a globalized economic order built on colonialism and racial capitalism.” She noted however that some over-zealous defenders of the government on the Qatari side have neglected the country’s human rights shortcomings. “Many of the people defending Qatar are also using terrifyingly pro-government language,” she said, adding that it reaches a point that doesn’t help the cause of Qatar’s migrant workers. “The plight of migrant workers in places like the US or the UK does not take away from the fact that we have problems in Qatar,” AlHajri told CNN. “It shouldn’t be about whataboutism.” With additional reporting from Mariam Dirar Alqasem in Doha Iran protests Social media videos have emerged allegedly showing Iranian security forces sexually assaulting female demonstrators on the streets. With media access inside Iran severely constrained, CNN went to the region near Iraq’s border with Iran, interviewing eyewitnesses who’d left the country and verifying accounts from survivors and sources both in and outside Iran. The covert testimonies revealed sexual assaults on male and female activists as a women-led uprising spreads throughout Iran. US Special Envoy for Iran Rob Malley on Tuesday tweeted it is “a reminder of what is at stake for the Iranian people - and of the lengths to which the regime will go in its futile attempt to silence dissent.” Read the article here. Here’s the latest on the protests in Iran: UN human rights chief Volker Türk said on Tuesday that the rising number of protest-related deaths highlights the “critical” nature of the situation in the country. The UN said its sources had reported over 40 deaths “in mainly Kurdish cities in the past week.” Forty foreign nationals “affiliated in riots” have been arrested in Iran since protests started in September, Iranian judiciary spokesperson Masood Satayshi said without revealing their nationalities. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Tuesday the US is taking steps to “push back against actions Iran is taking to repress its own people.” Mobile internet was restored in Iran after a major disruption on Monday, according to internet watchdog NetBlocks, which said that cellular data was down for about 3.5 hours as security forces cracked down on protesters in the Kurdish region of Iran. World Cup Saudi Arabia produced one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history Tuesday, beating Lionel Messi’s Argentina 2-1 in an astonishing Group C match. Many had expected the South American team, ranked third in the world, unbeaten for three years and among the favorites to win the tournament, to sweep aside its opponent, ranked 48 places below it in the world rankings. Watch CNN’s Becky Anderson speak to celebrating fans of the Saudi team: Also read: A brief history of World Cup shocks. Watch: hilarious moments of Saudi fans celebrating. Many are wondering how a tiny nation with little footballing history ended up hosting one of the biggest sporting events. Find out here. Some of those attending the matches have experienced difficulties when trying to enter stadiums wearing clothing in support of LGBTQ rights. How World Cup politics explain the modern world. Here’s what fans can’t do in Qatar. Qatar is a minefield for World Cup advertisers. One team has already lost a sponsor. The digest Teenage student dies in twin explosions in Jerusalem Two explosions shook Jerusalem early Wednesday, killing one person and injuring 18 others in a suspected “combined terror attack,” according to an Israeli police spokesperson. The first explosion occurred at a bus station near the entrance of Jerusalem, killing a 16-year-old student at a Jewish seminary, his family told local media. The second explosion occurred almost half an hour later at the city’s Ramot junction. Initial investigations indicated that explosive devices were placed at both blast sites and a search is underway for suspects, the police spokesperson said. Background: The attack brings the number of people killed on the Israeli side of the conflict to at least 29 this year. This year has also been the deadliest for Palestinians in the West Bank since 2015. Why it matters: Jerusalem has not seen a double bombing like this one in many years. Prime Minister Yair Lapid said after participating in a situation assessment with security officials that the incident was “different from what we have seen in recent years.” The explosions come after months of tensions in the occupied West Bank. Russia to build attack drones for Ukraine war with the help of Iran, intelligence assessment says Iran and Russia have reached an agreement to begin the production of attack drones in Russia, according to a new intelligence assessment from a country that closely monitors Iran’s weapons program. Iran is beginning to transfer blueprints and components for the drones to Russia after the initial agreement was struck earlier this month, said a source familiar with the assessment. Background: US officials have said that Russia has received hundreds of drones from Tehran which have had a deadly effect in Ukraine. Earlier this month, the Iranian government acknowledged for the first time that it had sent a limited number of drones to Russia in the months before the start of its invasion of Ukraine. Why it matters: The move would further cement the partnership between Tehran and Moscow and likely provoke significant anger from Ukraine and its western allies including the US. Sources explained that the goal is for Russia to produce thousands of new attack drones using Iranian components and blueprints. Saudi Arabia says it may take steps to balance market Oil rose on Tuesday after Saudi Arabia said OPEC+ was sticking with output cuts and could take further steps to balance the market, outweighing global recession worries and concern about China’s rising Covid-19 case numbers, Reuters reported. Saudi Arabian Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman on Monday was also cited by state news agency SPA as denying a Wall Street Journal report that said OPEC was considering boosting output. Background: The Wall Street Journal earlier on Monday reported an output increase of 500,000 barrels per day was under discussion for the next meeting of OPEC and its allies, known as OPEC+, on December 4. The report cited unidentified OPEC delegates. The report sent oil prices plunging by more than 5%. Why it matters: The oil cartel last month cut production by 2 million barrels per day in an effort to stabilize the market “in light of the uncertainty that surrounds the global economic and oil market outlooks.” The oil cut was made despite strong US pressure against it. Potential further cuts could exacerbate already tense relations between the US and Saudi Arabia. LM Add a comment 1
  3. Kataib Hezbollah leader offers American 'liberation movements' advice and training after US Capitol riot by Michael Lee, Social Media Writer | January 13, 2021 03:51 PM An Iraqi Hezbollah militant has offered to train Americans planning “liberation movements” in the wake of the siege of the U.S. Capitol last week. “A senior military official from Iraqi Shiite militia Kataib Hezbollah Abu Ali al Askary has offered to ‘provide direct and indirect advice and training for liberation movements inside the United States of America, and special sites will be provided for this… USA The End,’” reported NBC News analyst Evan Kohlmann on Twitter. Kohlmann added that it “is not entirely clear if al-Askary’s offer is genuine, or whether this is merely Kataib Hezbollah using social media to taunt the U.S. government in the wake of last week’s riot at the U.S. Capitol.” Kataib Hezbollah is an Iranian-sponsored militia that operates in both Iraq and Syria. The group was responsible for many of the roadside bombings that killed U.S. forces in Iraq following the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of the country. After the American withdrawal of troops from Iraq, the militia pivoted to defending the Assad regime in Syria and has been involved in terror activity in Iraq’s Anbar province. National News correspondent Joyce Karam provided a screenshot of Askary's social media post after the militant’s account was suspended by Twitter. “In God’s name,” a translation of the post reads. “Security consultants for the Islamic Resistance are up and ready to offer direct and indirect training and advice for liberation movements inside the non-United States of America and will assign special locations for that.” The post comes as lawmakers are still debating the fallout of last week’s riot at the U.S. Capitol, which left five people dead, including four rioters and one police officer. Some lawmakers have directly assigned blame to President Trump, who held a rally immediately before the riot where he repeated claims that the election was “stolen” and urged his followers to fight back by making their voices heard at the Capitol. Democrats introduced articles of impeachment against the president, holding a vote Wednesday on whether or not to charge Trump with “incitement of insurrection.”
  4. Hadith (or tradition) from a Shiite text of the 17th century. The tradition comes from Bahar al-Anvar (meaning Oceans of Light) by Mullah Majlisi, a magnum opus in 132 volumes and the basis of modern Shiite Islam. According to the tradition, Imam Ali Ibn Abi-Talib (the prophet's cousin and son-in-law) prophesied that at the End of Times and just before the return of the Mahdi, the Ultimate Saviour, a "tall black man will assume the reins of government in the West." Commanding "the strongest army on earth," the new ruler in the West will carry "a clear sign" from the third imam, whose name was Hussein Ibn Ali. The tradition concludes: "Shiites should have no doubt that he is with us."

  6. The Associated Press FollowView Profile Officials: IS militants kill 4 Iraqi soldiers in northwest Story by By QASSIM ABDUL-ZAHRA, Associated Press • 15h ago React1 Comment| 7 BAGHDAD (AP) — Islamic State group militants attacked an Iraqi army position in the northwestern governorate of Kirkuk early Saturday killing four soldiers, security sources and a local government official said. This is a locator map for Iraq with its capital, Baghdad. (AP Photo)© Provided by The Associated Press IS fighters in the district of Dibis took the soldiers' weapons and communications gear and left the scene, security sources said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to give statements to the media. It was the first such attack in nearly a year. In January, Islamic State gunmen broke into a barracks in the mountainous al-Azim district outside the town of Baqouba, where they killed a guard and shot dead 11 soldiers as they slept. Rakan Saeed al-Jiboury, the governor of Kirkuk, told The Associated Press that the attack “is a result of negligence and lack of care by the security forces." He added that the site of the attack is an area where authority is divided between the Iraqi army and Kurdish peshmerga forces "so there is no coordination, and (IS) takes advantage of this.” IS's territorial control in Iraq and Syria was crushed by a years-long U.S.-backed campaign, but its fighters continued with sleeper cells that have killed scores of Iraqis and Syrians.

  7. I know many of you might think im ignorant, but im a convert who does not know the holyquran well. Im asking this because when i told you when i said ya hussain because at ashura i felt something and thought it was shifa and went home and said ya hussain, but any way i wanted someone to explain this verse, for i was ignorant and absent minded, does it disprove shifa? i think i just messed up!!! @cool "Do not call onto any beings other than Allah. These are capable of neither benefiti nor harm. To do so is therefore guilty of wrongdoing. When Allah inverts you with an affliction, none can remove it except Him." [Al-Qur'an 10:106-107]
  8. Why does it seem like these people are attacking symbols of islam? like burning down howzas,mosques, and attacking clerics? And Cemetaries? Are these people even muslim?
  9. The Wall Street Journal. FollowView Profile Nancy Pelosi to Step Down as Democratic Party Leader in House Natalie Andrews - 39m ago WASHINGTON—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said she wouldn’t seek to remain Democratic leader after her party lost control of the House in the midterms but would continue to serve in Congress. Nancy Pelosi to Step Down as Democratic Party Leader in House© denis lovrovic/Agence France-Presse/Getty Images “I will not seek re-election to Democratic leadership in the next Congress,” she said on the House floor in a speech that recounted her career. “For me, the hour’s come for a new generation to lead the Democratic caucus that I so deeply respect.” The first woman to serve as speaker received a lengthy standing ovation from Democrats and Republicans and was embraced by lawmakers after the speech. On Wednesday evening, Republicans clinched a narrow majority of seats in the House with a victory in California, ending two years of Democratic control of both chambers of Congress and the White House. Democrats will continue to control the Senate. Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries of New York is seen as the front runner to lead the caucus now that Mrs. Pelosi is stepping aside. He had been holding meetings with colleagues and testing their support, according to lawmakers and aides. Another potential candidate, Rep. Adam Schiff of California, has taken himself out of the running. Mrs. Pelosi entered the House chamber wearing a white suit, a color she and other women in Congress have embraced for past major events due to its association with the suffragist movement. The daughter of a Maryland congressman, she recalled riding in the car with her brothers into Washington when she was a young girl. “They were thrilled and jumping up and down and saying to me, ‘Nancy, look, there’s the Capitol.’ And every time I’d say, ‘I don’t see any capital. Is it a capital A? A capital B? Or a capital C?’ And finally, I saw it.” She highlighted work with President Biden and past presidents of both parties on major energy, climate and healthcare legislation. She also reflected on the results of the midterms, the first nationwide election after the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol by supporters of then-President Donald Trump. “With these elections the people stood in the breach and repelled the assault on democracy,” she said. Related video: Nancy Pelosi expected to announce 'future plans' after GOP wins House She also cited the growing diversity of Congress in her decades there, citing higher numbers of women and members of minority groups. When she arrived in Congress, there were 23 women in the House. In the most recent Congress, there were 123 women, with 91 Democrats and 32 Republicans. She said she would continue to represent her district. “There is no greater official honor for me than to stand on this floor and to speak for the people of San Francisco,” she said. Her decision had been closely held. Mrs. Pelosi’s spokesman, Drew Hammill, said in a tweet Thursday that Mrs. Pelosi had prepared two versions of a speech Wednesday night. Lawmakers at the Capitol on Thursday morning said they didn’t know what she planned to say. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) is set to take over from Mrs. Pelosi as speaker in the next Congress, if he can keep his caucus mostly united. For years, Mrs. Pelosi was a political target for Republicans, who campaigned in many areas with the slogan “fire Pelosi” and regularly referenced her in attack ads. “It’s official. One-party Democrat rule in Washington is finished. We have fired Nancy Pelosi,” said Mr. McCarthy on Fox News on Wednesday. Headed into the election, Republicans had been heavily favored to win the House, due to voter concerns about the economy and crime, as well as President Biden’s low approval ratings and the historical tendency of the party that controls the White House to lose seats in the midterms. While the GOP did win the majority, their gains were less than expected, which analysts and lawmakers attributed to independent voters’ concerns over abortion access as well as Republicans’ messaging on issues such as election fraud and the influence of former President Donald Trump. The results were seen as potentially changing the calculation for Democratic leaders’ plans, as the minority could potentially have greater power in a narrowly controlled chamber. Mrs. Pelosi, 82 years old, had pledged when Democrats last took the majority, in 2019, to serve just two more terms as speaker, which ends with this Congress. Also in question are the futures of her two top deputies, Reps. Steny Hoyer, 83, of Maryland and Jim Clyburn, 82, of South Carolina. Asked about his plans Thursday as he walked into a Democratic party meeting, Mr. Hoyer said: “I’m going to wait for the speaker to make hers … I’m not going to say anymore. It’s premature.” The California Democrat was the first woman to become speaker of the House and the first speaker to lose and regain the gavel in more than 60 years. Her ability to count votes and twist arms is venerated, even by her opponents who had to at times seek her out to pass legislation. She clashed repeatedly with Mr. Trump, at one point dramatically tearing up the text of his State of the Union speech at the conclusion of his address. Under her leadership, Democrats impeached him twice; he was acquitted in the Senate. She led House Democrats in passing the party’s legislative accomplishments in recent years, such as the Affordable Care Act under former President Barack Obama and sweeping Covid-19 aid, healthcare, climate change and social policy packages under President Biden, as well as a bipartisan infrastructure bill. The announcement came just weeks after her husband, Paul Pelosi, was attacked in the couple’s San Francisco home, requiring surgery and time in intensive care. Mrs. Pelosi said earlier that the attack would influence her decision.
  10. When or if Shia islam will spread in the west like Sunni or Salafi, i know in the west and muslim world, most of shia converts are from sunni,when will it appeal to non muslims like Sunni or Salafi? I know they get help from dawah ad media coverage and more money spent on literature like books, pamplets, internet media,ect. But When will Shias have this oppretunity,i know Saudi and other countries outspend and outreach more then shias, even the western entertertainment puts sunni out like movies and television shows like erturl and djjn and others and movies about ottomans. When will it be Shias time to Shine, anybody?
  11. Who Is Dajjal (the Antichrist)? Where Is He Now? And When Will He Appear? Learn Full Details بسم اللہ الرّحمٰن الرّحیم Many years ago the last Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said to his companions: “between time of the creation of Adam AS and the Resurrection day, there is nothing greater than the mischief of Dajjal (the Antichrist).” Muhammad Qasim says: "In my dreams, I have seen many things pertaining to the false Messiah and today I’m going to combine them to present a comprehensive narrative of what I have witnessed regarding MASIH AD-DAJJAL (THE ANTICHRIST)." The Physical Description of Dajjal (the Antichrist) Dajjal’s height is about 6 feet and 1 or 2 inches. He has a cruel face with dark brown skin. He is clean shaved and bears a mole on his cheek. Dajjal has slight curly dark hairs and he bears close resemblance to a typical south Asian or Middle Eastern man. Dajjal has a muscular built and when I saw him, I didn’t see any of his eyes bulging out rather they were normal. I don’t know if he is blind in one of his eyes, however he does have the ability to shapeshift, therefore he can take on any appearance he desires and uses this ability to appear in a pleasant form and seduce the masses. When Dajjal walks, he strides with a lot of pride and it feels like no one can approach or stand in front of him even those who may seem to have unshakable resolve will fall victim to his deception. In my dreams, I have heard Iblees addresses Dajjal as “My Rich Warlord.” The Power of Dajjal According to what I’ve seen in my dreams, Dajjal is frequently triggering and conspiring pandemonium (fitna) in the Middle East. Bear in mind that he hasn’t reached his full potential yet, perhaps that’s why he has not yet appeared in front of the people but he wants to achieve his full power so that he can appear in front of the people and for this he increases his power in various ways. So for the most part of my dreams, I have seen him constructing some black-magical harnessing plants which he uses to fuel his powers. In one particular dream, I’ve seen him performing bizarre rituals through the use of skulls which he used to gather magical power and collect them in a fuel tank which acted as a repository similar to what you see sorcerers and magicians do. In one dream, I have heard Dajjal saying “very soon my power will increase and I will acquire some new powers. I will implement my fear across the entire world and the whole world will either submit to me…otherwise I will kill them.” Perhaps this is symbolic for something ominous…Allah knows better. To me it seems that dajjal is waiting to gather enough power until he is ready to make an appearance to the world and he gains this power by establishing magic-harnessing plants. I’m not sure if the construction of the 3rd temple is a part of his ritual to obtain more powers, Allah knows best. When Will Dajjal Appear? After the great Malhama (WW3), the noor of Allah is filled throughout the earth and the Muslim ummah implements peace and justice upon the entire world, and this peace lasts close to a decade (for 7 years). During this peaceful reign the Muslim army builds heavy, high tech weaponry and technology to prepare for the war against Dajjal. While the Ummah prepares for this trial, a few disbelievers await the arrival of the Dajjal, most of them being from the Yahood (Jews). What Will Dajjal Do When He Appears? When Dajjal emerges in public, he is able to quickly subdue the entire world which causes the believers to become fretful of him. Dajjal claims that he is a God and is easily able to appeal to the masses and support his claims through the use of his diabolical powers. Dajjal fools many people and those with weak faith start joining him very quickly. Many people have questioned me about whether or not Dajjal will use technology or Jinns to perform his deceptive miracles. From what I have seen, Dajjal will be able to perform his supernatural feats through the use of black magic. It is only by Allah’s decree that he is able to have such powers and he is indefinitely the greatest trial for mankind. In my dreams, I was informed that the supernatural feats which we watch in movies and television would easily be performed by Dajjal. *Such as running in the air, shape shifting, mind manipulation, weather control, and power over the elements, and so on. These are just examples Allah knows best. Dajjal promises the people a paradise on earth, to the men he promises women, wealth, property, and whatever their hearts desire. To the women Dajjal promises to beautify their appearance, make them more attractive, and grant them anything they desire. Due to this, billions of people join him in a matter of days. Dajjal and Muhammad Qasim Face to Face The Islamic forces advance to confront Dajjal and engage him and his army of followers, however our efforts seemed to be of no avail and our heavy missiles were like firecrackers in front of Dajjal. Remember that at this time technology and military equipment is at its peak. Allah has sharpened the minds of Muslims and the world has developed in a way that no one has seen before but still Dajjal and his armies are easily able to repel our attacks. After the appearance of Dajjal and the battle of the Islamic army with him, I go myself to confront Dajjal and he persuades me to join him and promises me eternal life and a high status. I renounce/rebuke him saying “what will happen by that? we are all going to die someday and nothing except Allah can live forever, you will fail in your endeavors and you too shall die one day. The Lord of you and I is one, Allah..the lord of all the worlds (of the worlds).” Upon hearing this Dajjal becomes infuriated (irritated/aggitated) and changes his appearance into a very terrifying form which causes my body to shake and I couldn’t muster up the courage to say anything. Dajjal then exclaims that “Qasim! If you don’t pledge your allegiance to me, I will kill you…go home and contemplate about your final decision." After this encounter, I leave from Dajjal’s presence and go back home. I approach the Muslims and warn them that “If anyone confronts Dajjal, there is a 99.9% chance that they will join him. Dajjal is indeed a great trial and only those who Allah has bestowed his special mercy upon can save themselves from this trial” I instruct them that “O Muslims! If we love Allah and the last prophet Muhammad SW, it is better for us to die as Muslims than to pledge allegiance with Dajjal. Come! let us die as shaheed in the path of Allah while fighting Dajjal” The Muslims agree with me and the believers gather to wage a war against Dajjal and his group of disbelievers. And with that begins the war between truth (Haq) and falsehood (Batil). The Ultimate War Between Dajjal and the Muslims And with that the war between truth (Haq) and falsehood (Batil) begins. I engage Dajjal with the Noor of Allah on my index finger and attack him to divert his attention so that he doesn’t use his powers on the Muslim army. I keep engaging Dajjal so that the Muslims could inflict as much damage to Dajjal’s armies. Due to Allah’s Noor, I was able to fight with Dajjal for quite some time, however Dajjal was extremely powerful. In the midst of battle, the Noor of Allah suddenly disappears from my index finger and then I say to myself that "Qasim! It's best to fall back from here." I start evading Dajjal and try to run away and then by the mercy of Allah, I begin to run in the air and Dajjal comes after me by flying and he exclaims “Qasim! I will not let you live today!” I manage to traverse into a mountain terrain; Dajjal follows me there and continues his onslaught. Dajjal strikes my back and injures me; I lose my balance and fall down. A large stone next to me opens up and says “Qasim! Hide yourself inside me, I will save you from Dajjal" but I refuse the offer. At that moment Dajjal approaches me while uttering “Qasim! Get ready to die.” I then beseech Allah praying ” Ya Allah! Help me!” And then the word “ALLAH” descends from the sky, and then Allah causes the lightning to strike at the side of a mountain. The mountain darkens in colour and it shatters into many pieces. Subsequently causing a frightening sound to arise and upon hearing this Dajjal immediately faints and falls down. Then Allah heals my wounds and tells me that “Qasim! Dajjal has only fainted for four hours and he will wake up after that." Allah says to me that "Qasim! Run away from here and hide elsewhere, afterwards I will tell you what to do next and don’t come in front of Dajjal as long as I command you." I say ”as you command my Lord!” And I express my gratitude to Allah for saving me from Dajjal and then I start journey to another location and hide myself. When Dajjal regains consciousness, he doesn’t remember the incident that had just occurred and believes that he has killed me. Dajjal goes back and gloats to the Muslims that he has killed me. Upon hearing this news the Muslim army becomes disheartened and demoralized and with that Dajjal starts his mission without any resistance and one by one the Muslims fall. The wars with Dajjal cost the lives of hundreds of millions of people most of them being Muslims. The End of Dajjal Dajjal advocates a lifestyle filled with facade, illicit acts, debauchery, adultery and basically a false “kingdom of heaven on earth” for his followers and this fitnah continues for 4-5 weeks until the descent of the son of Mariyum Isa Alisalam. The Descent of Hazrat Isa (عليه السلام) In my dreams, I have seen our noble prophet Isa alaisalam descending from the sky. He appears to have wet black hair and he resembles a Middle Eastern person. Me and the few believers who remain start to live with Isa alaisalam, and this is followed by appearance of Yajuj wa Majuj. Jazakallah Khair

Al Jazeera FollowView Profile Air attacks hit pro-Iran convoy in Syria near Iraqi border 3h ago Air attacks have struck eastern Syria along the Iraqi border, hitting Iran-backed fighters and inflicting casualties, a Syrian war monitor, Iranian state television and Iraqi paramilitary officers have said. (Al Jazeera)© Provided by Al Jazeera The number of casualties has not been confirmed but some of those killed in the attack late on Tuesday were Iranian nationals, according to two Iraqi paramilitary officers. The United Kingdom-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported at least 14 people were killed in the raids, mostly fighters. The attacks hit a convoy of “fuel tankers and trucks loaded with weapons” for the fighters in Syria’s eastern province of Deir Az Zor, the Syrian Observatory said. It is not yet clear who was behind the raid but the United States military has carried out similar attacks in the past. The US military has, however, so far denied involvement. Army Major Rachael L Jeffcoat said that “no US forces or US-led coalition (members) conducted an airstrike in al-Qaim, Iraq, on the border with Syria”.

Ten trucks were hit, of which four were “completely burnt”, after entering Syrian territory through the Al-Qaim – Abu Kamal border crossing. 4 Pack Travel Bar Soap Box Container, Plastic Holder Case With Cover For Toilet Bathroom Organizer, 4 Colors, 4.5 X 3.3 in. The Deir Ezzor 24, an activist collective, reported three air strikes targeting Iran-backed militias in the Syrian border town of Abu Kamal and nearby areas. It had no immediate word on casualties. Earlier, members of Iraqi paramilitary groups operating in the area said an air attack on a convoy carrying fuel across the Iraqi border into Syria killed at least 10 people late on Tuesday. Iranian state television Press TV claimed the convoy was carrying Iranian oil to Lebanon through Syria, but offered no casualty details. It also claimed that the convoy attack was carried out by US drones and helicopters, adding that the attack took place after eight of the trucks had crossed into Syria. Pro-Iran fighters have a major presence around the Iraqi-Syria border. Iran is a major supporter of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad, sending thousands of fighters to help Syrian government troops in the country’s 11-year war against the country’s opposition. In August, the US military carried out air raids in Deir Az Zor targeting Iran-backed fighters after a rocket attack left several US soldiers lightly wounded. At least two fighters described by US Central Command as “suspected Iran-backed militants” were killed. The Pentagon said the strikes were a message to Iran.

  15. Republicans Could Elect Muslim to Senate in Historic First for U.S. Story by Xander Landen • Yesterday 12:28 PM If elected, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Pennsylvania's Republican U.S. Senate candidate in this year's midterm elections, could make history as the first Muslim to serve in Congress' upper chamber. Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz speaks to supporters at a campaign rally at The Chadwick on November 4, in Wexford, Pennsylvania. If elected, Oz, would make history as the first Muslim to be elected to Congress' upper chamber.© Jeff Swensen In September, Oz told ABC News that being the first Muslim elected to the Senate would mean "pride and honor." "I think America, especially this commonwealth of Pennsylvania, was built on allowing people of very diverse backgrounds to offer their best ideas. All of us are smarter than any one of us," he said. Oz, a celebrity heart surgeon, is running against the state's Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman for the open Senate seat. Polling shows the two candidates are neck-and-neck. Oz has been able to narrow his Democratic opponent's lead in recent weeks, according to FiveThirtyEight, which currently shows Fetterman's polling average is 46.8 percent compared to Oz's 46.4 percent. During his campaign, Oz, whose parents are Turkish immigrants, hasn't discussed his religion frequently. In a May interview with the conservative outlet Real America's Voice, Oz said that he's a "secular Muslim" and also spoke against Sharia law, a religious code that is interpreted widely among Muslims. "We don't want Sharia law in America," the Senate hopeful said during the interview, according to ABC News. "I don't want any of these religious fanatics playing a role in American society and I would aggressively block them." Oz's comments about Sharia law have been criticized by some Muslims, however. Ahmet Tekelioglu, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations' chapter in Philadelphia, told Newsweek on Saturday that Oz's characterization of Sharia law is "problematic" and "definitely plays into anti-Muslim tropes." "I think that that needs to be called out and I hope that our community members who engage with Dr. Oz...will have real conversations with him about that," Tekelioglu said. "When he says 'We don't want Sharia law in America'—that's problematic. Him trying to paint people who attach to Sharia law as fanatics or people who don't self-identify as secular Muslim as fanatic, is problematic." Tekelioglu, whose organization is not making an endorsement in the race, said that he knows of community members and friends who "are very skeptical of [Oz], seeing him as a populist in the same fashion as Trump is." However, he added that there are also Muslims who believe that Oz's "affinity with Islam, or his affinity with Turkey as a Muslim-majority country will have a positive impact." Former President Donald Trump, who has endorsed Oz, campaigned in 2015 on a pledge to bar Muslims from entering the United States, and while in office, banned immigration and travelers from several majority Muslim countries. Newsweek has reached out to Oz's campaign for comment. In an interview with Al-Jazeera on Saturday, Mehmet Birtek, a 44-year-old from Alburtis, Pennsylvania, said he hopes Oz's candidacy will encourage other Muslims to join with the Republican Party. "He will make a big difference for the Muslim community, I believe, in the Republican Party – and this is the start," Birtek said. Khalid A.Y. Blankinship, the chair of the religion department at Temple University, told ABC last month that he doesn't believe Muslims "are going to be very influenced by the fact that Oz is a Muslim." "Some small number of people might be; it's conceivable," Blankinship said, who did call Oz's candidacy "a major event." "It is very significant that that has happened," he added.
  16. i was asking because people have tried to make a link between the Shia symbols of them and babylon,especially some ignorants, but im glad you cleared that up.
  17. A Wahabbi on Facebook post said saying Jumah Muburak is Bidah and we should only say As salaaam alakim instead!!!!

Because soon as tese things happen the questions and prapaganda startedto appear, ill let you see for yourselves!!!
  19. Newsweek FollowView Profile Serbia Sends Troops to Kosovo Border as NATO Could Face Another Conflict Giulia Carbonaro Avideo showing Serbian troops reportedly being deployed to the Kosovo border has emerged online, as tensions grow between the two countries over new restrictions imposed on the Serbian population by Kosovo's government. In this photo, U.S. soldiers from the NATO peacekeeping mission KFOR greet local residents on a checkpoint on September 1, 2022 in Leposavic, Kosovo.© Pierre Crom/Getty Images Footage circulated by local media in Serbia on Tuesday shows several army vehicles reportedly traveling toward the border with Kosovo. The never-resolved sovereignty dispute between Serbia and Kosovo escalated this summer, with car plates and ID cards serving as the catalyst for the current crisis. Everglades University - Campus in Miami Ad everglades-edu.info Kosovo's government is trying to enact legislation that will mirror policies already in place for Kosovans in Serbia, including the requirement that people in majority ethnic Serb areas in the country swap their Serbian-issued car plates for Kosovan-issued ones, and that those entering the country with a Serbian ID card complete a form to use as a temporary Kosovan ID card. These policies, which fundamentally aim to treat ethnic Serbs in Kosovo exactly like ethnic Kosovans are treated in Serbia, have outraged Serbs living in Kosovo and angered the Serbian government, which does not recognize Kosovo's independence. Among protests from the ethnic Serbs in the country—including roadblocks and clashes with authorities—Kosovo's government decided to postpone the implementation of the new law on car plates, originally planned for August 1, by a month, accusing Serbia of actively trying to destabilize the country by sending protesters to its border. On October 29, Kosovo once again agreed to delay a rule to confiscate cars owned by ethnic Serbs who refuse to comply with the new legislation on car plates in order to avoid aggravating ethnic tensions. The flare-up of tensions between the two countries has alarmed the European Union—which for years has tried to play a diplomatic role between Kosovo and Serbia to maintain peace—and NATO, which in August said it was "prepared to intervene" to avoid another war in Europe. Despite its support for Kosovo in wanting to apply the new legislation, the EU has repeatedly suggested "Kosovo should allow for a longer transition period," as Nabila Massrali, spokesperson for foreign affairs and security at the European Commission, said on Saturday. But there are concerns that these postponements won't put an end to the tensions between the two countries. "Diplomatic interventions, along with a top-level dialogue meeting on August 18, led to a temporary relief in the form of extended deadlines and promises to continue discussions. Yet, the parties' willingness to risk dangerous confrontations on the ground, at best set the process back. At worst, it may lead to much more serious consequences, even if unintended," Caroline Ziadeh, special representative of the Secretary-General for Kosovo and head of the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), said on October 18 in New York during an update on the tensions between the two countries. The deployment of Serbian troops at the border with Kosovo has the potential to escalate tensions even further to the point of it having the "serious consequences" mentioned by Ziadeh. After fighting a bloody war with Serbia in the 1990s, Kosovo declared independence in 2008, but Serbia said that such a declaration was illegal. To this day, Serbia doesn't recognize the sovereignty of Kosovo and is joined by Russia and China, among others. Because of this partially recognized status, Kosovo isn't part of the United Nations or NATO, but since June 1999, NATO has kept a mission of 3,770 troops provided on the ground in Kosovo to maintain peace between the country and Serbia and stabilize the region, called KFOR.

  20. CNN FollowView Profile What we know and still don't know about the attack on Paul Pelosi Shawna Mizelle - 1h ago ReactComments| 1 The man who is alleged to have attacked Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in the couple’s San Francisco home on Friday is expected to be charged with multiple felonies Monday, according San Francisco law enforcement officials. He is expected to be arraigned on Tuesday. “We are coordinating closely with federal and local law enforcement partners on this investigation. We will bring forward multiple felony charges on Monday and expect [suspect David DePape] to be arraigned on Tuesday. DePape will be held accountable for his heinous crimes,” San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins tweeted Friday evening. Here’s a look at what we know – and still don’t know – about the attack: How it unfolded An intruder, identified by police as David DePape, 42, confronted the 82-year-old Paul Pelosi with a hammer early Friday morning, shouting, “Where is Nancy? Where is Nancy?” according to a law enforcement source. The assailant attempted to tie Pelosi up “until Nancy got home,” two sources familiar with the situation told CNN. Pelosi called 911 when he encountered the threatening man and left the line open so a dispatcher could hear his conversation with DePape, speaking surreptitiously but making it clear that he needed help, according to a law enforcement source. San Francisco police entered the home around 2:27 a.m. local time Friday (5:27 a.m. ET) to find Pelosi struggling over a hammer with a man, who has since been identified as DePape, according to the city’s police chief. Officers saw DePape “violently assault” Pelosi with the hammer before they tackled him to the ground and arrested him. “It is really thanks to Mr. Pelosi having the ability to make that call, and truly the attention and the instincts of that dispatcher to realize that something was wrong in that situation and to make the police call a priority so they got there within two minutes to respond to this situation,” Jenkins told CNN’s Erin Burnett on Friday. Police said the DePape entered through a back door and it wasn’t clear if he circumvented any security measures. Pelosi was taken to a hospital after the attack and underwent a “successful surgery to repair a skull fracture and serious injuries to his right arm and hands,” Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Nancy Pelosi, said in a statement early Friday evening. He is expected to make a full recovery. Motive remains unknown Authorities said Friday that the suspect is in the hospital for minor injuries. DePape was not known to US Capitol Police and was not in any federal databases tracking threats, according to three sources who were briefed on the investigation. But he had posted memes and conspiracy theories on Facebook about Covid-19 vaccines, the 2020 election and the January 6 attack on the US Capitol.

Vásquez/AP US Capitol Police said in a statement Friday that it is assisting the FBI and the San Francisco Police “with a joint investigation” into the break-in. Related video: Nancy Pelosi's Husband, Paul, Attacked At San Francisco Home: What To Know 0 View on Watch Law enforcement officials have not provided a motive for the attack, but San Francisco Police Chief William Scott said in a news conference Friday that the attack was “intentional” and “not a random act.” “It’s wrong. Our elected officials are here to do the business of their cities, their counties, their states and this nation. Their families don’t sign up for this to be harmed and it is wrong,” Scott said. Fears of political violence grow Nancy Pelosi was not home at the time of the attack but traveled to California on Friday to be with her husband. The security detail for lawmakers, including the speaker, does not protect their spouses when the members of Congress are not with them. Pelosi was able to speak to her husband following the attack and before he was taken into surgery, according to a source familiar with the matter. The attack sent shock waves through Washington and sparked an outpouring of condolences and condemnation from congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle. It has also underscored fears of political violence directed toward lawmakers in the wake of the January 6 insurrection, as well as other high-profile violent incidents that have targeted lawmakers in recent years. President Joe Biden described the attack on Paul Pelosi as “despicable” and directly tied the assault to growing strains of right-wing extremism. “This is despicable. There’s no place in America – there’s too much violence, political violence. Too much hatred. Too much vitriol,” Biden told a fundraising dinner Friday in Philadelphia. Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell said in a tweet Friday that he was “horrified and disgusted” by the reports while House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy’s office said he had reached out to the speaker, a fellow Californian. Vice President Kamala Harris said the assault was more evidence of “scary stuff” happening in politics around the country. At a campaign rally Saturday in Baltimore, Harris recalled a time in the US when it was “appreciated that it is the diversity of opinions that will lead us to progress, to smart decisions.” But now, she said, certain “so-called leaders” were using their positions to advance “preservation of their personal power” and to divide the country. They are “using the bully pulpit in a way that is propagating hate,” the vice president said. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, speaking at the same rally, asked people to pray for Paul Pelosi and reflect on what led to the brutal attack. “I want you to think upon the environment that has been created in America by some who would bring us down, who would pit one another against one another, who would degrade our Constitution and our declaration and our proposition that ‘all men and women are created equal’” the Maryland Democrat said. “We say, ‘Those truths are self-evident,’ but they are not self-executing. It is up to us to make sure that America survives the hate and division that too many purvey in our country.” ‘An open investigation’ Authorities in San Francisco are appealing to the public to provide tips regarding the attack. “While an arrest has been made, this remains an open investigation,” the San Francisco Police Department said in a statement. Anyone with information is asked to call the SFPD Tip Line at 1-415-575-4444.
