Thanks for putting back my posting to rally all Muslims and non-Muslims to say the Prayer of Prophet Suleiman. May Allah bless all of you in Memphis Flyer! Can some of your Muslims give me their feedback/opinion of what they think of my humble attempt in this matter? Thanks. Allahu Akbar!!
Hi! Why are you Muslims in Memphis Flyer against my attempt to rally Muslims and non-Muslims to say the Prayer of Prophet Suleiman as record in your Quran by removing it from my posting minutes ago? If Musalims do not hve faith in the goodness of their Quran and Hadits,how could they expect others to have faith in their Quran? Fortunately, non-Muslims have greater faith in the Muslim's Quran than Muslims themselves. Isn't this strange?
An Open Letter to US Congressmen, Senators and American Citizens:-
Crusading for the Prophet’s Prayer in Memory of 911
Thank God for your gallant General Petraeus! Thank Allah for your resolute President Bush and VP Cheney! Thank Allah that more people are seeing the light. Thank Allah that now, even Osama’s good friend and pamphleteer for jihad, the popular Saudi Islamist cleric and scholar Sheik Salman al-Oadah, is going against him, and blaming him/AlQaeda for giving Islam a very bad name (www.islamtoday.com).
Consequently many people in the world now think of Islam as a religion of terrorists and suicide bombers; of backward, trouble=making and benighted people many of whose males fantasize on how to get free sex with voluptuous virgins in Paradise, etc,
But there is so much good in their Quran which non-Muslims truly cherish; so why do many Muslims choose the evil parts to organize and drive their societies, even parts which are not in the Quran, like killing others for sex with heavenly virgins?)
It doesn’t matter that Osama has appeared again, this time rather subdued, with a faky black beard, and railing against capitalism and globalization. Obviously he has been hiding and going around without his beard to avoid detection until it was time to show up in his video. This shows that this coward is not of Allah, but of Shaitan. So you people don't have to be running scared! See, more and more Al-Qaedian and Taliban leaders and militants are being killed and arrested. In God’s good timing, it will soon be Osama’s and his henchmen’s turn.
No need to be scared. Just be patient with your President Bush; and just take note of the counsels of the very wise---of both the dead and living, like Singapore's Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew. He is highly regarded all over the world. He had cautioned the Americans that Iraq War was not the same as the Vietnam War where America could pull out its troops just like that, as Muslims are everywhere in large numbers. Muslims need clear and strong leadership to help them understand what is the will of Allah, and not fall prey to Shaitan's (Satan's) beguiling, through people like those in Moveon and the Al-Qaida.
The Vietnamese in America have, nonetheless, integrated well into the American milieu as useful and peaceful citizens. Even in North Vietnam, American visitors are warmly welcomed, as Vietnamese have long come to terms with communism as a bankrupt and soul-destroying ideology (like radical Islam), though they are afraid to speak up openly.
The best that can be said of people clamoring to weaken or impeach President Bush is that they are terribly misguided and too simple-minded to understand what the War on Terror is all about. Americans must try to understand that the mortal dangers attending a defeat in this war do not just threaten America and the West, but the whole free world too. Iraq is the main battlefield of this war. So it must be fought onto victory, however high the price, or long or difficult the war.
Sadly, terrorism will increase, not decrease, even if Osama is killed as many more will rise up to take his place unless the ideological battle is vigorously and courageously fought as well. For this, the strategy to use the Quran and the Hadiths as weapons against Islamic terrorism must no longer be denigrated. "The only force that can challenge Islamic terrorism is Islam itself," wrote Phillip Blond, senior lecturer in Philosophy and Religion in the University of Cumbria, together with Adrian Pabst, lecturer in Theology, University of Nottingham.
So Muslims (and others) must all be rallied to say the Prayer of Prophet Suleiman (King Solomon): "Inspire me, Lord, to be thankful to Thee for Thy favours to me and my parents to do good deeds which please Thee. Admit me through Thy mercy to be among Thy righteous." An-Naml 27:19. "For the noblest in Allah's sight is he who is the most righteous." Al-Hujurat 49:13. It will not be by bullets, bombs or missiles that the War on Terror can be defeat, though they are necessary to destroy those.evil-doers wherever they can be found. It will be by the Spirit of the Living God: "Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit," thus saith the Lord Almighty. Zechariah 4:6
The failure to make use of the goodness of the Quran and the Hadiths is the missing element in this difficult war. Therefore, the first thing which needs to be done is to deny Muslim terrorists the monopoly of their Quran and Hadiths to perpetrate their great evil when these books are also the only effective weapons against them. It is by default of the woolly-minded non-Muslims and the cowardice of the moderate Muslims that allow Islamic terrorists this monopoly.
Incredibly, many Americans are also egged on by self-serving politicians to employ their 'weapon'--pressing President Bush for a precipitous troop withdrawals from the battle fields--for their impossible victory against Al-Qaedians and Islamic terrorists! It is sadder still that many weak-minded libertarians even choose to delude themselves that those demonoids held in Guantanamo camp is evidence of Bush's moral failing, and vehemently advocating for them to be treated like common criminals: insisting that those evil people must be given their rights to tell lies in court; to keep silent and to enjoy their rights of reasonable doubt, and their rights of access to see classified evidence; etc, etc. Or faulting Bush's attempts to extend the law on wire-tapping of terror suspects as criminal violations. Many would want to impeach President Bush (or Tony Blair) if they could, in their benighted ways. But this is the sure way to increase the number of terrorists in America and the West, especially the self-radicalized, homegrown type.
It cannot be over-emphasized that clamoring for troop withdrawals and using kid's gloves should never be the way forward in the war on terror. I invite those feeble-minded champions of human rights to come to Singapore and learn how our government and our courageous Muslim leaders successfully fight together this difficult war. Here we lock them up right away in ISA detention. No open trial! And no one is complaining, not even the detained terrorists themselves, as their wives and children are being looked after by the authorities while they undergo counseling and rehabilitation. Singaporeans nowadays have also stopped calling for ISA detention laws to be scrapped. Singapore too faces the problem of the self-radicalized type of Islamic terrorists, though Singapore does not have any troops in Iraq or Afghanistan; and our Muslims have always been treated very well. By and large, our Muslims are really wonderful people and citizens. Praise Allah that true Islam is still alive----or at least in Singapore!
So how could troop withdrawals do away with the default given to Islamic terrorists and extremists to monopolize the use of their Quran and Hadiths as their weapons to do evil, when these same books can also be the only effective weapons against those evil, sex-hungry demonoids? Precision bombs and missiles are not good enough; and hanging Bush upside down will not entice Islamic terrorists to call for peace.
In this war, there are also no boundaries. It will stretch over many generations after President Bush's term of office and after the Republicans are gone (if they lose the Election next year). Bush did not start the war on terror. This is a war which is almost as old as Islam itself. The Shiites, the Sunnis and the many other Islamic sects and groupings, such as the Khawarij (the spiritual ancestor of the Al-Qaedians, Talibans, JIs, Wahhabis, etc), were already terrorizing each other and the non-Muslims, especially after the death of Prophet Mohammed (s.a.w). That was how the early Muslims 'enriched' the vocabulary of the English-speaking world with the word "assassin" (from their "hassassin", among others). Nothing short of their World Islamic Caliphate will satisfy them.
And the Muslims love dragging in the non-Muslims while settling their ancient scores, in their bloody attempts to establish supremacy for their respective versions of self-imposed backwardness and benightedness; hence the 9/11 WTC bombings and other attacks for their never-ending jihads. Attacking non-Muslims has always been their way to upstage each other in their contest to prove to the Muslim ummah who are the true and faithful believers and defenders of Islam. So, this will always bedevil not only Bush's presidency, but all presidents after him as well, no matter how much good America does for the Muslims, till Kingdom comes!
Despite the love of Muslims to attack and kill Christians, it was to ‘Christian’ America that Muslim Kuwait turned to for help to reclaim their stolen country from their own Islamic butcher Saddam Hussein (this devious dictator had once commissioned a Quran to be copied in his own blood. Of course, this Quran is now a collector’s item). Their own Muslim brothers in the Muslim lands were then cheering for Saddam Hussein even though he had massacred hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of innocent and defenseless Muslims in cold-blood. So when are Muslims going to think for themselves?
It was Christian America, not Muslim countries or Osama, that led the Western ‘Christian’ nations to go to the aid of the Bosnian Muslims when they were being butchered by the Serbian dictator Milosevic and threatened with extinction. And it was America and the Christian West that helped Muslims and Afghans expelled the atheistic Russians, only to have the Talibans and Osama turned Afghanistan into a terrorist emirate and a large pit of hell on earth for their Islamic paradise.
Muslims must also not forget that history can never be denied that countries defeated (or protected) by the reluctant American military power were subsequently helped by America to become very rich and successful. Never in the history of mankind was there such a benign super-power. That's why many Muslims risk lives and limbs to try sneaking into America from their impoverished and oppressed homeland. Thank you America!
Muslims must show faith in what their Quran has repeatedly stated: that Muslims can find light and guidance in the Torah (books of Prophet Moses) and the Injil (Gospel of Jesus); they are a guide and an admonition to the righteous. Al-Maida 5:44-46. It affirms that if Muslims observe the Tawrat(Torah) and the Gospel of Jesus, and what was revealed to them by their Lord, they shall enjoy abundance (blessings) from above and from beneath. Al-Maida 5:65. Those desperate Muslims knew that in Christian lands, they could find people who are genuine in the love and practice of the goodness of their Quran, something that is very lacking in their Muslim homelands; hence their do-or-die urge to risk life and limb trying to sneak in. Perhaps these are the Muslims who evidently believe what their Quran says: that Christians are the nearest in affection to the [good] Muslims Al-Maida 5:82.
Notwithstanding this, many other Muslims not only despise the good teachings of their Quran (paying only lip service to it); they choose to forget the many good deeds that Christians and other non-Muslims did for them. However, there is one thing which they are unable to refute, namely, that those who use the Quran and Hadiths for doing good are wielding the sharp and powerful LONG SWORDS of Islam. But those who use these books to perpetrate great evil are merely holding their small, poisoned tipped Islamic daggers; so they will bring upon themselves the dreadful Curse of Isthlal. It needs no rocket science for anyone to figure out the outcome of a deadly contest between these two groups of people. For the Quran says Allah is the best Schemer and Plotter against evil people who think otherwise. Ali-Imran 3:54 and Al-Anfal 8:30.
Sad to say that if the self-serving politicians, the cowards and the weak-minded in America prevail in their benighted ways, then those who are winning and holding onto the long and powerful Swords of Islam will find themselves beating a retreat from those weak and defeated demonoids, too dazed and frightened by the flashing of their small daggers to fight on. Then those demonoids can rally the Muslims to join them because Allah is with them, as victory ONLY comes from Allah!
What can be a more pathetic and preposterous caricature than the sight of the strong but stupid Americans beating a retreat when they are winning but who lack the resolve to prevail onto victory? Just to prove correct Osama bin Laden's contempt for and prediction of the stupid Americans? And then be forced to go back to Middle East again to fight a losing war from square one when great chaos follow, and American interests are even more threatened? Who can then trust the stupid Americans again?
Whatever it is, the Quran has long consigned such evil, willful and cold-blooded murderers of innocent Muslim children, women and men to Hellfire. It says Muslims must not kill Muslims, or they will be thrown into Hellfire. An-Nisaa 4:29,92. For Allah does not guide the evildoers. At-Tauba 9:36. He is always with those who keep away from evil and who do good deeds. Al-Nahl 16:128.
So all would do well to rally Senator Hillary Clinton and Muslims to join Singapore's PM Lee Hsien Loong and our wonderful Muslims to recite the Prayer of Prophet Suleiman (King Solomon): "Inspire me, Lord, ….” Then Senator Clinton will be on track not only to win the coming Presidential Election, but also to be America's next great leader, like our PM Lee Hsien Loong! This will also be the best rejoinder to Osamas’s silly call some days ago for Americans and the West to convert to Islam if they want peace. Allahu Akbar!!
All Muslims ought to know that my Allah is so powerful that He needs no one to help Him do anything, like the simple task of obliterating some people from planet earth. He can't be so weak that he's losing in every firefight and running to hide with Osama in the Afghan's many caves. How can Allah be so weak that he needs Satan and the Jinns (demons) to incite sex-hungry suicide bombers to slaughter innocent Muslims daily in their twisted jihads for their rewards of free sex with 72 voluptuous virgins in Paradise?
If Allah is almighty and wise, why should he need to beg Satan and His Jinns for help to destroy Themselves, and splatter the blood and flesh of innocent Muslims through suicide bombings? Satan would be stupid to agree for self-destruction, and allah is stupider to have begged Satan for help in this stupid way! For victory comes ONLY from Allah. Ali-Imran 3:126
That's why more Al-Qaedians, especially those in Iraq, are seeing that this is so, and turning against Osama and his wicked demonoids. Even King Abdallah of Saudi Arabia has branded them as agents of Satan! That was why Yusair b Amr ( r.a.), a Companion of Prophet Mohammed (s.a.w.) had reported that Sahl b. Hanaif once answered him that he had heard the Messenger said of Al-Khawarij while pointing his hand towards Iraq: " There will appear in it (i.e. Iraq) some people who will recite the Quran, but it will not go beyond their throats, and they will go out from Islam as a arrow darts through the game's body" [to maim and kill the innocent]. (Bukhari). Even to this day, this prophecy of Prophet Mohammed rings very true!
So no Americans must dismiss or belittle the amazing successes of their very capable General Petraeus, and invert them as more 'evidences' yet again of President Bush's 'disasters' in Iraq! Many fun-loving Americans may not want to believe in the Quran and Hadiths. But they can't stop the Muslims who strongly believe in them, often in the wrong way. So if the winning side who hold the great Swords of Islam are retreating from those flashing their small daggers, those demonoids would be justified to claim this as their miracle to prove that Allah is with them---surely not with Senator Hillary Clinton and company, or the cowards and the weak-minded!
Well, if any are still unconvinced that President Bush is winning, just go to Iraq and ask the jubilant Iraqi Kurds, Sunnis, and Shiites, etc who had recently celebrated in the Iraqi cities their footballers' fairy-tale victory in the last Asian Football Cup Final! That's why Osama and those Khawarijs also want to target the footballers and Muslims who love playing it, as football will greatly diminish the appeal for their senseless and endless jihads against their fellow Muslims.
Or ask the Iraqi sheikhs who have belatedly realized who their real friends are. Unfortunately, many of them have realized too late! Even their tender virgin daughters are now fair game for those sex-hungry Al-Qaedic demonoids, who are taking them in forced marriages for a foretaste of an eternity of free sex with 72 voluptuous virgins in the Islamic Paradise. (And yet killing for others’ virgins isn’t in the Quran. So how did the Quran ended up as the beloved manifesto of those demonoids and the Islamic extremists?)
So more people are seeing the light in the glorious Quran! Hopefully, Senator Clinton and all presidential contestants could be counted with President Bush and with those who do.
So Americans must give their President and his troops more time to do a good job and then WITHDRAW! After all, it was Allah who had mobilized the Muslims to vote him into the US Presidency despite winning less votes than Al Gore. Evidently, Allah knew that Bush would make for a more resolute leader to handle the great crises to come then. Can Allah be ever wrong in wanting Bush for the presidency for the second time? Well, without the help of the Muslims, for sure Allah could never have got him to become America's 43 President. So Muslims must learn for once how to submit to Allah's will and not try so hard to make Allah into the servant of the Great Muslim Ummah.
Therefore, American leaders must make sure that none of them can be faulted for lacking in PATIENCE, COURAGE AND WISDOM to see through this difficult War! Certainly if President Bush could, he would want to send more warships to help the Muslims the way he did for the tsunami-stricken Acehnese, etc. This should also be the way that Muslims must do to rally support for President Bush’s noble and honest venture, and discourage their co-religionists from joining up with those Khawarij to kill and massacre their own Muslim people.
Muslims must play their part to help themselves as the Japanese, the Germans, etc did after receiving America's great help, not just depend on others to do and die for them. The best start is for Muslims to join with the non-Muslims to show faith in the goodness of the Quran. After all, it is their Quran, not the non-Muslims'. Thank Allah for President Bush!! Allahu Akbar!!
