On this day Main Events

April 1, 1946 The Malayan Union officially came into existence with Sir Edward Gent as its first governor. The capital of the Union was Kuala Lumpur.

Notice the sign is written in english and Arab,not Malay

The Malays/Moslems opposed the creation of the Union. The opposition was mainly due the erosion of the Sultans’ powers and the offering of citizenship to recent immigrants mainly the ethnic Chinese because their economic dominance was seen as a threat to the economic development of the Malays/moslems.
The United Malays National Organization, or UMNO, a Malay/moslem political association formed by Dato’ \Onn Jaafar on March 1, 1946, led the opposition against the Malayan Union.In the end, due to tremendous internal pressure inside the Malayan Union, the British finally conceded to the local opposition.
The Malayan Union ceased to exist on January 31, 1948. It was replaced by the Federation of Malaya (Persekutuan Tanah Melayu in Malay) which recognised the position of the Malays/Moslems as the definitive people of Malaya as well as outlining stricter conditions on the granting of citizenship.
Malaysia has never, the same as Indonesia been moderate, both countries are in the Mekkan stage of Islamic developement,they are not ready for Medinian stage yet, but are progressing steadily as these cases prove
Case #1

KOTA KINABALU: A 24-year-old Muslim woman yesterday failed in her application to renounce Islam on the grounds that she did not practise the religion and was never given religious education.

Syariah High Court judge Jasri Nasip Matjakir said the applicant did not submit any concrete evidence that she was no longer a Muslim in action, behaviour or deed that could expel her from Islam.
In her affidavit, read by counsel Hamid Ismail, the Sino-Kadazan said her non-Muslim lifestyle would cause society to look down on her and she would be subjected to the judgment of the syariah court.
The applicant’s father was a Muslim while her mother, a Sino-Kadazan, converted when the couple got married.
Hamid said the basis of her application was under Article 11 of the Federal Constitution — that she had the right to choose her religion and must not be prevented from doing so by anyone.
This is as held by the Supreme Court in the case of Minister of Home Affairs, Malaysia and Anor v Jamaluddin bin Othman, 1989 1 MLJ 418.
The second basis was that Islamic law on apostasy is not applicable in Malaysia because there is no total application of Islamic law in Malaysia.
Jasri, in his judgment, said although the Federal Constitution did state that every individual deserved to choose his or her religion, it did not give authority to the syariah court to allow Muslims to renounce their religion. “The court can only decide whether one’s action is permissible according to Muslim laws.
“The reasons given by the applicant are based on fear of punishment which is against the teachings of Islam. Is fear a good enough reason?
“The court finds the reasons given are weak and not one that can be used as permissible to murtad (leave Islam).”

Case #2
Malaysia court halts baby boy’s conversion to Islam
Sat Mar 31, 2007
KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – A Malaysian court has taken the rare step of ordering a Muslim man not to go ahead with plans to convert his baby son to Islam, pending a last-ditch legal effort by the Hindu mother to take custody of the boy.
The Court of Appeal, which usually defers jurisdiction in religious matters to Malaysia’s Islamic courts, granted the mother an injunction on Friday barring the father from converting their 1-year-old to Islam, local newspapers said on Saturday.
Once the boy is converted to Islam, the father could seek custody of him in an Islamic court. He did this last year with the couple’s elder son, aged 3, the papers said.
The legal battle highlights constitutional tensions over religion in mainly Muslim Malaysia: the charter assures freedom of religion but in practice non-Muslims have found no recourse to civil courts where questions of Islamic identity are involved.
Non-Muslims make up about 40 percent of the population and many refuse to submit to Islamic law. In 2005, the High Court ruled it could not intervene to stop state religious officials giving a man a Muslim burial against his Hindu widow’s wishes. She said he was Hindu but an Islamic court ruled he was Muslim.
In the latest case, the lawyer for the Hindu mother said an Islamic court might award custody of her younger son to the father before she could exhaust all her civil legal options.
“If the injunction is not granted, the wife’s right will be over-reached before the appeal is heard in the Federal Court and it will cause severe injustice,” state news agency Bernama quoted the lawyer, Malik Imtiaz Sarwar, as telling the Court of Appeal.
“There is also the possibility that the father will convert the second child. The threat is substantial.”
But the injunction may be only a brief legal victory for the mother, R. Subashini, who married under Hindu rites in 2001.
The Court of Appeal ruled earlier this month that the father had the right to go to the Islamic court to have his marriage dissolved and to seek custody of the younger son.
The injunction granted on Friday applies only until the mother can persuade the Federal Court to hear her appeal against the Court of Appeal’s March 13 ruling.

THE Pussycat Dolls have been fined for being too sexy.

April 1, 2008 The girl group – famed for their raunchy routines – must pay $3400 for flashing body parts during a concert in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, July 2007.

During the routine, Carmit Bachar, who has since left the group, exposed a breast while Ashley Roberts was accused of revealing her private parts after her tiny pair of shorts left little to the imagination.Promoters Absolute Entertainment were fined for allowing their act to perform “sexually suggestive” routines in the strict Muslim country.The penalty was imposed by the council which manages the Kuala Lumpur suburb where the event took place.The fine followed a complaint from Malaysia’s culture minister Rais Yatim, who said the group’s concert featured “scantily dressed performers” and “sensuous elements”.He added: “I believe the way the Pussycat Dolls behaved on stage amounted to gross indecency,”Under the country’s Muslim laws, a female performer must be covered from her shoulders to her knees.Jumping, shouting or throwing of objects onstage or at the audience are all also banned.

It damned hilarious that some men can go completely bonkers over a little tit or pussy

April 1, 2005: Broummana, Lebanon. Police said Saturday nine people, including one American, were injured and hospitalized from a bomb that ripped a parking lot of a commercial center in Lebanon’s summer resort town of Brummana the previous night.Most of the injuries were caused by flaying glass and smoke from the explosion of a 25-kilogram explosive charge that targeted the Rizk Plaza, a complex of living apartments with shops and a branch of slain ex-Premier Hariri’s Bank Mediterrane at the lower floors, a police statement said.The blast also wrecked dozens of private cars inside and near the targeted parking lot.

Many were set afire but subsequent heavy rains put down the blaze before fire engines could make to Brummana, a favorite of Gulf summer vacationers a 30-minute drive from Beirut into the Metn Mountains.Many other tenants were treated on the spot for shock and respiratory difficulties as civil defense volunteers climbed on make-shift steel ladders to bring victims out of the higher floors. They were put on stretchers with oxygen masks.Opposition leaders, who raced to inspect the blast scene, openly blamed the bombing on Syria’s intelligence service and affiliated security departments in Lebanon, which are out to show that Syria’s withdrawal would leave Lebanon in chaotic instability.This was the fourth such bombing since the Syrians began to pullout their army and intelligence personnel from Lebanon hard on the heels of ex-Premier Hariri’s assassination Feb. 14.


All four bombings hit targets in Lebanon’s Christian heartland, a concept seen by the opposition as designed by Syria to fan the flames of a new civil war and show that Lebanon still cannot afford the security backlash of the withdrawal of the service and affiliated security departments of President Lahoud’s Syrian-sponsored regim

Today’s Islamic Trivia Special

LONDON, April 1, 2008 — Everyone was still buzzing this week after the Bishop of Rochester’s blistering comments on Saturday during Evensong service in which he lashed out at violent video games that have become popular among the youth of Pakistani neighborhoods in England. Dr. Michael Nazir-Ali is the only Pakistani-born bishop serving in England—he has dual citizenship—and so his opinions are often sought on issues involving Muslim/Christian dialogue. It turns out that the most popular of the “blasphemous” games being sold at market stalls in Manchester and Leeds is a “first-person shooter” game with an Arabic name that translates roughly as “Blood on the Walls” or “Street Bleeding.” The bishop was specifically upset over one of the “missions” in the game, in which the player is ordered by a stern-faced mentor to use a number of medieval implements to torture and kill Jesus. If the player turns down the mission, he is instructed instead to actually behead Jesus with a scimitar, after which a grinning character in a tunic holds up the head in triumph and shouts “Allah-hu Akbar!,” or “God is great!”It wasn’t clear from Nazir-Ali’s brief presentation where the game is manufactured, but the packaging featured crude images of soldiers that look similar to terrorist recruiting literature that circulates in Pakistan’s Northwestern tribal areas, especially Peshawar.Nazir-Ali called on British authorities to find all the copies of “Street Bleeding” that are currently in circulation and have them destroyed, but civil liberties experts said that sort of roundup is highly unlikely, and Muslim clerics were quick to call the bishop’s remarks racist.“We were just treated to a full week of various depictions of the killing of Jesus, much of it paid for out of public monies,” said Samir Futayn al-Sabend of the Ludlow Road Mosque in Birmingham, “so I hardly think a few lads doing the same thing in the privacy of their flats should be cause for alarm.”Other defenders of the game included designers who work at Rockstar North in Edinburgh, the company most famous for the “Grand Theft Auto” series. “Every game like this is a bit of a put on,” said Gareth Kinsley, who worked on “GTA: Vice City,” “and although the programming of ‘Blood on the Walls’ is fairly primitive, there’s an obvious exaggeration in the way the various Mohammedan warriors decapitate their victims. It’s not just Christ who gets beheaded. Christ is actually just one step above your average NPC (non-playable character), on a par with several other characters who are simply ‘in the way,’ so to speak. All of the focus is on the torturing of the savior, but most people wouldn’t choose that option anyway. No one talks about the stoning-of-adulteresses side quest. In my opinion that’s quite nasty stuff, but you don’t get the same outrage because the victims are female.”Supporting the comments of the bishop, and elaborating further, was Dutch politician Geert Wilders, who has been under heavy security since releasing his film Fitna last week but issued a statement through a spokesman: “This is exactly the sort of anti-Christian, anti-European and anti-civilization outrage that is systematically destroying our culture. Somewhere the next Mohammed Bouyeri is playing ‘Bleeding Walls’ (sic).”Mohammed Bouyeri is the Islamic fanatic who murdered Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh.After the bishop’s comments, several reporters tried to purchase the game in Manchester and other British cities with large concentrations of Pakistani Muslims, but no one could come up with a copy. The issue even came up in Parliament on Monday, when Liberal Democratic leader Nick Clegg said the bishop’s speech was “a gross caricature of reality” and that the idea of dismembering Jesus or any other historical figure was perfectly within the bounds of protected speech.The Muslim Council of Britain, after initially refusing comment, eventually said through a news release that, “Once again, this bishop is scaremongering among people who have no contact with ordinary Muslims. We have reviewed the offending video game and, while we decry the depiction of the mutilation of a religious figure revered by many people in the world, we find it no more offensive than the mutilation of the same religious figure in the film Passion of the Christby Mel Gibson.

We also decry the section of the game in which Jews are burned with hot pokers, which evokes images of the Holocaust and has no place in our society, although we would note that none of the Jews seem to be historically revered figures, as in the Christ portion of the video game.”Today’s khutbah (Islamic sermon)At-Talaq 65-4, 5, 6

Such of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the prescribed period, if ye have any doubts, is three months, and for those who have no courses (it is the same): for those who carry (life within their wombs), their period is until they deliver their burdens: and for those who fear Allah, He will make their path easy.

Tabari IX:131 “My mother came to me while I was being swung on a swing between two branches and got me down. My nurse wiped my face with some water and started leading me. When I was at the door she stopped so I could catch my breath. I was then brought in while the Messenger was sitting on a bed in our house. My mother made me sit on his lap. Then the men and women got up and left. The Prophet consummated his marriage with me in my house when I was nine years old.”

Muhammad followed a cultural norm in marrying and having sex with a young girl. After all, she was considered an adult.

What is more critical than Muhammad’s single action with Aisha is that he taught that a girl is considered an adult following her first menstrual cycle. He also taught that his followers were to follow his “sunnah” or lifestyle. Thus today, throughout much of the Mideast, girls as young as nine are often married by men old enough to be their grandfather.

And in the west , hundreds of moslems are following his “sunnah” by raping thousands of young girls.

Is political correctness stopping police ending the misery of the teenage sex slaves?

By KATHRYN KNIGHT

Their faces remain shadowy, but Jane clearly remembers the sheer, terrifying numbers of men who would be brought to her bed at night.
“It happened every night. There were loads of men involved.” Her voice cracks.
“You couldn’t keep count.” It was like a conveyor belt, she recalls.
A conveyor belt of men all expecting sex.
She was only 14.

The very idea seems medieval, a horrific nightmare.
But this was 21st-century Yorkshire, and Jane’s experiences as a child prostitute were all too real.
In fact, it’s believed as many as 5,000 under-age British girls have been groomed for prostitution by ruthless criminal gangs.
It is a sinister and deeply uncomfortable scenario, not least because these crimes frequently have a racial element: in many of the identifiable cases, the pimps come from the Asian or Afro-Caribbean communities.
As such, the parents of some young victims claim the authorities are reluctant to tackle the issue for fear of upsetting race relations in areas with large ethnic minorities.
Whatever the politics, the reality of the plight of these young girls is chilling.
All are left irrevocably damaged by what they endure, while in certain quarters the police stand accused of failing to protect them from the sexual predators who stalk Britain’s regional centres.
As Aravinda Kosaraju, a researcher at the campaigning organisation Crop (Coalition for the Removal of Pimping), puts it: “The abuse these girls suffer is horrendous. What we’re dealing with is gross criminality, and that should be confronted irrespective of the race of the perpetrators.
“We are battling to get recognition that what we are dealing with is organised crime against children.”
It is hard to disagree when confronted by the brutal details of Jane’s story.
A slightly built blonde from Yorkshire, who does not look her now 18 years, her memories follow what emerges as a depressingly familiar pattern: wooed by manipulative gangs of older men, victims are made dependent by expensive gifts and constant compliments.
A sexual relationship ensues before the abusers begin to exert control through threats, brutality and drugs before selling the girls to other men for sex.
In Jane’s case, her treatment was textbook, sparked off by an innocent conversation with a group of Asian men in their late teens and 20s during a trip to town with schoolfriends.
She was just 13 at the time.
“The grooming starts where you meet them and they’re nice to you and take you to McDonald’s and buy you cigarettes,”
“I was flattered that older boys were interested in me, which at 13 is nice. “And then you start to meet the cousins and the brothers, and then you realise that you’ve been passed on because suddenly you’re hanging around with older people.”
It was not long either, before the “hanging around” took on a more sinister tone.
“They start to touch you and say sexual things to you,”
“And then the abuse starts. I was pinned down by two men while a third man raped me.
“And there were other men watching.”
Too scared to confide in her parents, Jane felt held to ransom by the terrifying threats from the gang if she even considered asking for help.
“They’d say things like they’d bomb my house and gang-rape my mum,” she says.
Within weeks, Jane was being made to have unprotected sex with a succession of men day after day.
Astonishingly, she remained in school and even returned home most evenings to her parents, who found themselves powerless to discipline her.
Chillingly, so regular and routine were the experiences that it became “normal” to her.
“I had to perform sexual acts on different men. One would come in, do whatever he wanted, go out and another would come in,” she recalls.
Little wonder her pimps “worked” her hard: for them, Jane meant big money: according to the Metropolitan Police, a pimp can make £300,000 to £400,000 a year selling a 16-year-old girl – and, as David Barratt, a professor of applied sciences at the University of Bedfordshire and author of several books on child prostitution, points out, the younger the girl, the more money they make.
“The criminal network can receive very significant money,” he says.
Jane, or course, did not receive a penny, instead accruing “debt” by the day, a trap heightened by the fact that she was by now addicted to drugs.
“They’d introduce you to cannabis and alcohol, and then after you’d been doing that for a while they’d get you to take ecstasy or cocaine and then they’d want to get you onto heroin or crack cocaine, which is addictive,” she tells the TV programme.
“You don’t pay for your drugs – you have sex with loads of different men to pay for them.”
Across the Pennines in Blackburn, Lancs, this cycle is all too familiar.
Here in this former mill town, the phenomenon of young girls being groomed for sex by local gangs has caused such concern that police set up a dedicated unit, Operation Engage, to tackle the problem.
Its first major case caught two men with a history of preying on young teenagers in care, and highlighted what some believe is a growing phenomenon – the racial background of the pimps.
Both Asians, 32-year-old Qaiser Naveed, and Zulfqar Hussain, 46, were jailed for nearly six years for abduction, sexual activity with a child and supply of a controlled drug.
Their two victims were just 14 – and in both cases, their parents had no idea what had caused the huge changes they’d seen in their daughters.
Like Jane, the story of the two girls – we shall call them Lindsay and Fiona – followed a predictable pattern.
Both rather troubled youngsters who’d had problems at home, they fell under the spell of the older men.
“We met Zulfi and Qais in a take-away in Blackburn,” Lindsay, now 16, recalls today.
“We were just mates. They’d give us cans of lager, bottles of Jack Daniels and sometimes ecstasy, cocaine and cannabis.
“We knew at some point they’d expect sex with us. But we didn’t think there was really anything wrong with that.”
They soon did: both girls quickly became dependent, dragged into a world of sordid sexual exploitation while their parents could only stand by helpless as their daughters became wild and uncontrollable, staying out all night and refusing any discipline.
As Fiona’s mother, Megan, reveals. “Her outlook on everything changed. She didn’t want to know us as a family.”
Persistent complaints to the authorities, Megan says, paid off only when the local MP, Jack Straw, intervened.
Within weeks, both girls were taken into care in a bid to remove them from the source of the abuse.
Horrifyingly, though, this was not enough to protect the girls from Naveed and Hussain.
Furious, they hatched a plot to abduct the girls from care and took them back to their life of sex for sale.
This time, however, the increasingly sickening violence the girls faced was to prove a turning point for Lindsay and Fiona, and both found the courage to report the men to the police.
One incident in particular, stands out. “The time Zulfi attacked Fiona was the worst,” Lindsay says quietly.
“I remember hearing her screaming because he was whacking her across the back with a metal bar when she refused to have sex with him.
“I guess she had sex with him in the end just to keep him quiet.”
Nor is this kind of violence unusual: Jane, too, was threatened more times than she can remember.
“One day I was picked up by an older man who took me to a park.
“He pulled a gun out from under the car seat and put it to my head and told me that I was going to die in three seconds,” she remembers.
“Then he counted down and pulled the trigger, but it wasn’t loaded. He found that amusing.”
Eventually, terrified for her life, Jane confided the truth to her parents, who reported her case to the police.
What ensued is subject to dispute: while the force concerned say they couldn’t find enough evidence for a prosecution, Jane insists she felt forced to withdraw her allegations because officers couldn’t guarantee her safety.
Certainly, Jane’s case highlights a central problem: in this shadowy, underground world, it is not always easy for either police or the victims to provide hard evidence of abuse.
Child prostitutes may not stand on street corners – they are more likely to be hidden away in places such as a flat above a taxi firm.
And with few victims turning to the police for help, officers are reduced to visiting known pick-up points: parks, amusement arcades, street corners, looking for girls at risk of grooming into prostitution.
Many do not want to listen. And even when they do manage to rescue their victims, many cases do not make it to court because the children are too scared to talk.
As Sara Swann, a former government adviser on child protection, puts it: “Many girls are terrified and with reason. We had a case in the West Midlands where a girl had her tongue nailed to the table when she threatened to tell,” she says.
“Another had her head pulled back, and a kettle of boiling water held over her open mouth. You won’t give evidence when that’s happened.”

The race issue continues to prove contentious: in 2004, a Channel 4 documentary on the topic of Asian pimps operating in Bradford was pulled from the schedule at the request of the Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police, who felt the timing of the programme could contribute to community unrest.

But there is hope. A decade ago, a pilot scheme in Wolverhampton showed that with a concerted effort on the part of police and community leaders, perpetrators can be brought to book.Under the scheme, which was funded for only 18 months, victims of abuse were put in “safe houses” out of the area.
It was to prove extraordinarily effective, as the team’s head, Det Sgt Lyndon Whitehouse, recalls on Panorama.
“We investigated 91 cases, and in 71 of those cases, we uncovered evidence of coercion and exploitation and in 35 we brought a prosecution.
“Thirty-five adults were charged with exploiting children for prostitution, and virtually all of those people were convicted,” he says on the programme.
His team showed how these crimes could be tackled throughout the country. But ten years on, no such scheme is in place.
This month, the Home Office confirmed that pimping children will be covered by new police targets, while a warning video will be produced for use in schools.
These measures come too late for Jane, who can only live with the legacy of her past.
She has, to a certain extent, repaired her life – she has a job and her relationship with her parents remains strong.
The long-term damage, however, is profound, and she suffers nightmares, flashbacks and depression. As she puts it: “I was just this innocent little girl who went from playing with her dolls to having sex with lots of different men.”

Not much has changed since Mohammed, islams prophet, had an innocent little 9 year old girl dragged from a swing and raped her.

On This Day in Before 9/11

Early 1996: Hamburg, Germany. Future 9/11 Hijackers Begin Attending Mosque Monitored by German AuthoritiesMohamed Atta and other members of the Hamburg cell begin regularly attending the Al Quds mosque and fall under surveillance by the German authorities. Atta becomes a well-known figure both there and at other mosques in the city. He grows a beard at this time, which some commentators interpret as a sign of greater religious devotion. The mosque is home to numerous radicals. For example, one of the preachers, Mohammed Fazazi, advocates killing non-believers and encourages his followers to embrace martyrdom
After a time, Atta begins to teach classes at the mosque; he is stern with his students and criticizes them for wearing their hair in ponytails and gold chains around their necks, as well as for listening to music, which he says is a product of the devil. If a woman shows up, her father is informed she is not welcome and this is one of the reasons that, of the 80 students that start the classes, only a handful are left at the end.
One of Atta’s associates, Ramzi bin al-Shibh, also teaches classes and fellow hijackers Marwan Alshehhi and Ziad Jarrah attend and possibly first meet Atta there. Other mosque attendees who interact with the future hijackers at the mosque include Said Bahaji, and al-Qaeda operatives Mamoun Darkazanli and Mohammed Haydar Zammar.
German investigators notice Bahaji meets frequently with Darkazanli and Zammar at the mosque, so they presumably have a source inside it.
The German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung will later report that there was an informer working for the LfV, the Hamburg state intelligence agency, inside the mosque by 1999 and that he appeared to be interested in Atta, Jarrah, Alshehhi, bin al-Shibh, Bahaji and others
April 1, 1994: A Palestinian Muslim working in the PLO Political Department in Tunis, Tunisia was assassinated by rival terrorists.April 1, 1993: A road construction project in the Philippines undertaken by a US firm was raided by the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. They destroyed the company’s heavy and expensive equipment. Local officials said that the Muslims were angry that they were not consulted about the road. The angry part was right anyway.April 1, 1992: In Ethiopia, a UN relief worker was murdered by Islamic jihadistsApril 1, 1991: State-sponsored Pakistani Islamic terrorists kidnapped two Swedish engineers in Kashmir, India. The victims managed to flee their captors on July 6th, after more than three months in captivity. The Muslim Janbaaz (Crusaders) Force claimed credit for the abduction.
The term “crusader” is most often applied to the rather feeble attempt made by Catholic militias in the 11th century as they attempted to defend Europe and the Byzantine Empire from Islamic conquest and to reclaim Judea, a place Muslim raiders had stolen from the Byzantines in the late 7th century. What is not as well known is that Muslims were “crusaders” for one thousand years while Christians played the role for a tenth that time. Beginning with Muhammad’s 75 terrorist raids against Arabs and Jews starting in 622 CE, the Islamic war machine was not stalled until the Vienna siege of 1683. In the years leading up to what’s called the “Christian Crusades,” Islamic armies were attacking the outskirts of Rome and Constantinople.
April 1, 1987: An Australian and French citizen in the Philippines were attacked by Islamic jihadists belonging to the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF). The Australian was injured in the attack, and the Frenchman was kidnapped by the terrorists. His body was found a few days later.April 1, 1985: The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan kidnapped two South Korean technicians in protest of their country’s support of the secular Iraqi government.April 1, 1985: The Arab Unionist Nationalist Organization claimed responsibility for the assassination of a Libyan businessman in Cyprus. A statement released by the terrorists described Ahmad Barani as an “Agent…involved in watching the activities of Arab strugglers and submitting information about them to hostile services, thus causing serious harm to Arab national revolutionary movements.” In other words, Ahmad wasn’t a thief and killer and therefore wasn’t a good Muslim. Good Muslims shot Barani in the face while he was gainfully employed in his Nicosia office.April 1, 1981: The French Embassy in Beirut was attacked by rockets during the night by Shia Muslims. The Islamic Mujahideen Saff claimed responsibility. The attack was to protest France’s sale of Mirage jets to Iraq, with whom the Iranians are warring.April 1, 1983: The People’s Revolutionary Solidarity Organization claimed credit for a bombing attack in Psikhikon, a suburb of Athens. They said that Saudi Arabian diplomats had been their target.April 1, 1979: In Istanbul, Turkey, a bomb was placed in the El Al office.April 1, 1977: Dr. Glen Eschtruth from St. Clair Shores, Michigan left a lucrative medical practice in 1960 to work for free to develop and run the United Methodist Mission Hospital in Kapanga, Zaire (Republic of Congo). He and his wife and a number of foreign missionaries and aid workers were placed under house arrest by invading mercenaries from the Angola Marxist regime led by the recent recipient of the Lenin Peace Prize, President Agostinho Neto. Dr. Eschtruth was marched away, and his body was found in a shallow grave some distance from Kapanga.April 1, 1973: An explosion destroyed several cars in Beirut. The BSO said the blast was an attempt by Jordanian intelligence operatives to assassinate Ziyad Al Hilu, a PLO/BSO official who participated in the assassination of Jordanian Prime Minister Wasfi Tal in Cairo on November 28, 1971.

    see Brother’s…. that’s not the way how things work.
    just calling each other names is not the solution for such big issues like religion. you should seek for the truth in the holy scriptures. Islam, Hinduism, Christianity,atheism or any other religion should never be abandoned only because of it’s believer’s. Coz the truth is always not what we see, i should tell you a great truth of this time “religious people are either burnt up in the fire or buried in the graves and The religion is buried in the BOOKS”
    you can’t find any facts about religion just by looking at it’s preachers. explore the reality, explore what is still hidden. Look for the truth and when you find it take an exam of it, if your heart admits it then accept it by heart and by your soul. and walk on the path that is shown by it.
    Truth and Trust are two things which are always beyond the sight.

    This question is asked by many non-Muslims and is used to hurt Muslims who do not understand this, This was an answer that I had prepared for a Christian.

    He married Aisha in contract initially and then she lived with him three years later. There are varying reports about her age when she married him some sources say 6,9,12,15 and the Shia say 18. According to Sheikh Hamza Yusuf all the narrations about her age at the time of marriage are singular narrations therefore there isn’t one that stands out and we can affirm that narration.

    In any case when she married him, she was fully formed woman, in other words capable of child birth. This was perfectly normal in that time, as it was the practice of the Arabs at that time to marry women at 12, when they had reached puberty and they did not live together until three years after that.

    In most of the books, scholars generally say the age was twelve and then she went to live with him when she was fifteen, after the emigration to Medina.

    This was a normal marriage in this time because another woman Khawla said why don’t you marry Aisha, this confirms it as a practice of the people.

    Don’t forget that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) had a dream where the angel Jibril was carrying a person and he asked who is was, the angel said it is your wife, the cloth was uncovered and it was Aisha, this happened three times. She was married to him before the Hijra to Medina and did not live with him until after which was some three years.

    In the Jewish Torah it states than any father who hasn’t married his daughter by the age of twelve, has dishonoured her. Henry the 8th wed Anne Boleyn aged twelve.

    Some Hindis marry when their brides are aged twelve, the Jewish tradition has about what age a woman should be when she marries, some say 6 others say 9 and 12.

    Mary mother of Jesus according to Christain sources was 12 when she gave birth to Jesus (upon them peace).

    There are several reasons for this marriage, Aisha (may God be pleased with her) reported the second most narrations about him (over two thousand), she was the first female scholar and she taught hundreds if not thousands of students.

    She corrected other companions when they made mistakes, she was a living authority of religious knowledge in her time. Muhammad (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) was also married to Safiyyah, the daughter of Huyayy ibn Akhtab, the leader of a Jewish tribe in Arabia. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)married her when she was 16 years old and guess what? He was her third husband; she was married twice before him.

    So, how old do you think she was when she got married to her first husband? Probably around 12 or 9, just like `A’ishah (May Allah be pleased with her).

    According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica—which is a Western source written by non-Muslim scholars and scientists — puberty is “in human physiology, the stage or period of life when a child transforms into an adult normally capable of procreation,” which essentially means “sexually mature.” She was engaged before him to the son of Uqbah ibn Muayt. He was one of the idol worshipers of the Quraish, who had abandoned her because of her father’s strong position in supporting Islam.

    Also, when Khawlah bint Hakim suggested to him to marry Aisha, the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, thought thoroughly whether to accept or to refuse. He took into consideration his relation with Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him).

    People who try to compare one time with another really misrepresent that time.

    Many people forget how amazing Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) was, after the Prophet (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) passed away, she did not marry again. She loved him that much that she could not bear to marry anyone else.

    People who bring slander to this are really showing what they have in themselves because when a dog barks at the moon, it does not make a difference to it.

      Ho Ho

      You are a liar, and there are hundreds of hadithes to prove this

      When we say Muhammad had sex with 9 year old child, Sick scum-bags like you brush it away and bring all sorts of excuses to justify this shameful act. This is the nature of blind faith and cognitive dissonance.

      There is not a single proof that this man was a prophet while there are tons of evidences that he was an evil man.

      Any -way, you do not seem to have high regard for Ashia, as you disregard what she has to say about her own marriage (rape)

      Sahih Muslim Book 008, Number 3310:
      ‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported: Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) married me when I was six years old, and I was admitted to his house when I was nine years old.

      Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64
      Narrated ‘Aisha:
      that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).

      Ho Ho this did not stop Aisha from having a little hanky panky with Safwan Ibn Al Muatta.

      And all this poppy cock that Aisha loved him that much that she could not bear to marry anyone else, when the truth is Aisha most probably was unfaithful to the perverted prophet

      We may never know, with cerainity, what actually happened between Aisha and Safwan. Was it by accident that Safwan was travelling on his own behind the army, or was it all planned? Some scholars propose that Safwan was travelling behind in order to collect the army’s leftovers, but there is no historical evidence to support that claim. Was it possible for the wife of the perfect human to contemplate having an affair? The answer is yes, because there were many reasons for Aisha to consider having an affair.

      Aisha was a spoiled teen ager who was aware of Muhammad’s obsession in her. She enjoyed her privileges as a favourite wife of Mohammd and guarded her eminence with jealousy. Aisha must have been deeply offended, during Al Mustalik campaign, by the fact that Muhammad’s attention was turned away from her in favour of Juwayreya, the woman she openly admitted to have hated. From her track record, Aisha was certainly that kind of woman who could respond in kind.

      It is also natural to assume that Aisha, as well as Muhammad’s other wives, were all sexually deprived; simply there were too many of them for one old man. The Islamic claim that Muhammad’s sexual potency equalled that of forty men is, of course, an Islamic lie and meaningless to non Muslims. Muhammad’s apparent lust to women did not necessarily mean an increased potency; underneath, there could be some kind of sexual dysfunction. As to Aisha, she was a young girl who opened her eyes to find herself abused by a man older than her father. She had no experience and didn’t know what a normal sexual relation looked like. Aisha was condemned to have only that abnormal relation with that old man who prohibited her from getting married after his death. Muhammad’s (divine) orders to his followers not to marry his wives could be an indication that he wanted to conceal something about his sexuality. By never marrying after him, his wives wouldn’t divulge any of his sexual secrets.

      Muhammad asked his followers to learn half of their religion from Aisha. Indeed, Aisha narrated more hadiths than any of the other wives. Most of those hadiths narrated by Aisha described the intimate relations between a man and his wife; the kind of things we would normally label ‘for adults only’. To pre-empt any criticism to this rather embarrassing observation, Muslims are taught that there is no shyness in religion (la haya fid din). According to Muhammad, those embarrassing hadiths comprised half of the religion!

      One of those hadiths narrated by Aisha described Muhammad’s ‘etiquette’ in fondling a menstruating wife and praised his ability to control his ejaculation. At the end of the hadith, Aisha remarked “and who of you can control himself better than the messenger of Allah, PBUH”.

      How did she know? Was she comparing him to Safwan?
