Torture Weapons of United States

A controversial nonlethal weapon that uses microwave energy to create intense pain is being considered for use in Afghanistan, AOL News has learned.
An Air Force military officer and a civilian employee at the Air Force Research Laboratory told AOL News at an industry conference here that the Active Denial System, which heats the top layer of skin via millimeter waves, was in Afghanistan for testing. The sources were not able to offer details on how or whether the weapon was being used in combat.
The weapon is designed to shoot an invisible beam of energy at people, creating an intense burning sensation that forces them to flee. The Air Force has called it the "goodbye effect." It has not been used before in military operations.
The Air Force Research Laboratory Directed Energy Directorate Active Denial System (ADS) is a counter-personnel, non-lethal, directed energy weapon.
U.S. Air Force
The Active Denial System, a nonlethal weapon being considered for use in Afghanistan, shoots at its target energy that causes a burning sensation on the skin. The heat quickly becomes intolerable and forces the target to move.
Defense Department representatives confirmed the weapon was being considered for use and did not deny it was in Afghanistan, but indicated it had not yet been used operationally.
"Consideration is under way for the appropriate employment of an Active Denial System," Kelley Hughes, a representative for the Joint Nonlethal Weapons Directorate, wrote in an e-mail to AOL News.
In 2008, the Pentagon considered deploying the Active Denial System in Iraq, but the effort was stymied over policy concerns. Whether it will become part of the U.S. arsenal is Afghanistan remains unclear.
"It is my understanding that there are discussions under way about deploying an ADS but no decision/approval yet," Marine Corps Col. Dave Lapan, a Pentagon spokesman, wrote in an e-mail to AOL News when asked whether the Pentagon's civilian leadership had approved the weapon's use in Afghanistan.
Lapan was unable to respond by deadline to requests for further clarification.
Note: Now, the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protestors in United States will very soon experience the effect this weapon. The administration may use this to disperse the peaceful occupiers.

Effect of Moharram on Pakistani Economy

Pakistani economy gains more than hundred and twenty six billion... (126,000,000,000) in the name of Imam Husain (a.s.). 
When in Pakistan only this much amount spent in the way of the martyrs of Karbala, How much would it to contribute to the world economy?
A poet has expressed beautifully:
Itni Daulat Hee Kahaan Tere Khazaane Mein Yazeed
Jitna  ik  Sheh  Ka  Azadaar  Luta  Deta  hai 
اتنی دولت ہی کہاں تیرے خزانے میں یزید
جتنا اک شہ کا عزادار لٹا دیتا ہے.

Sermon of Hadhrat Zainab (s.a.) in Yazid's Court

“All praise be to the Lord of the worlds! And blessings of Allah upon His Messenger and his entire progeny! How true has Allah, the Glorious, said: 'Then evil was the end of those who wrought evil, for they belied the Signs of Allah, and at them they used to mock.' (Surah ar-Room, 30:10).

Court of Yazid in Damascus
O Yazid! Now when you have locked the paths of the earth and the horizon of the heavens upon us, and driven us similar to the captives, do you presume that we are degraded in the eyes of Allah while you are endeared? While you have acquired an eminent and lofty status near Allah due to this? So you look down upon us and become arrogant, elated, and you rejoice that the world has turned towards you? You assume that your task is organized, while your sovereignty and kingdom pleases you? Gradually you seem to have forgotten the words of Allah, the Mighty, the Sublime, 'Let not those who disbelieve think that Our giving them respite is good for their selves; We only give respite to them that they may increase in sins, and for them is a disgraceful chastisement.' (Surah aal-'Imraan, 3:178).

New Moon of Moharram 1433 A.H. has been Sighted

The new moon of the month of Moharram 1433 A.H. has been sighted in different cities of India.
Imam Husain (as), has said: 
"I am the martyr of tears, 
no man of faith remembers me but that he weeps."

Importance of Nauha and Marsiya on Imam Husain:
On another occasion, the poet Ja'far ibne Iffaan recited to our Imam al-Sadiq a poem on the tragedy of Kerbala. The Imam began to weep uncontrollably. He then addressed the poet in the following terms: 
"O Iffaan, do not think that it is only those whom you can see here are listening to your poetry. In fact Allah's closest angels are present here at this majlis and they are all listening to your recitation and they too lament and weep. May Allah bless you for what you have recited. He will, inshallah, reward you with paradise for your efforts on our behalf."

The Crumbling of the Super Power

US government's debt load topped the $15 trillion mark on Thursday (November 17), as leaders continued to debate over how to cut spending.

According to figures released by the US Treasury, the burden of federal borrowing on American taxpayers touched $15,033,607,255,920.32 on Wednesday, up $55.8 billion from Tuesday.

Economists said this was a very unhealthy state of US finances. The debt, they said, is approximately equal to 99 per cent of the size of the country's economy.

US debt has steadily climbed since August, when Congress agreed to raise the country's official debt ceiling from the then-$14.3 trillion to $15.194 trillion. FULL STORY

Make your Mobile Phone a Travelling Microphone

In the Middle East, Israel has set up a cyber command to secure the country against hacking attacks on its key networks.
Israel's immediate neighbourhood is the place where it puts into use much of its technical know-how. 
Along its northern border with Lebanon, Israel deploys a large network of electronic eyes and ears.
And in the ongoing intelligence war between Israel and Lebanon's Hezbollah, increasingly sophisticated electronic equipment is being used.
In February 2010, Lebanon arrested a man who reportedly confessed to being a Mossad agent. It was claimed that he had used sophisticated surveillance equipment that sent signals to his Israeli handlers via a mobile phone and computer located in a hidden compartment inside his car.
It may all sound like science fiction, but a global spying network does exist that can eavesdrop on every single phone call and email on the planet.
Eavesdropping on phone calls and text messages has become increasing easy for those with the right equipment, especially with the development of GSM networks - the technology used on the vast majority of mobile phone networks around the world. Read Full

Protesters shut down Port of Oakland in US

Protesting against economic inequality and corporate greed, the demonstrators on Wednesday joined a general strike and shut down operations at the Port of Oakland, Reuters reported.
The protesters noisily condemned police brutality at a recent 'Occupy Oakland' protest rally and blocked a major Oakland street.
Organizers of the rally had earlier announced their plan to shut down the Port of Oakland, which handles about $39 billion a year in imports and exports, as they geared up for a massive general strike.
“At this time, maritime operations are effectively shut down at the Port of Oakland. Maritime area operations will resume when it is safe and secure to do so,” port officials said in a statement.
Anti-Wall Street protesters also blocked the gates of the port and stood on top of container trucks stranded in the street.
Oakland 'Occupy' movement gained momentum after a former US Marine and a veteran of the US-led war on Iraq was badly wounded by a projectile fired by police during a rally last week. Read full Story

Wahhabis Do It Again at Jannatul Baqee

Sheikh Usama Al Attar

October 30  2011

Canadian-Iraqi scholar, Sheikh Usama Al Attar was detained in Medina, Saudi Arabia yesterday. Sheikh Usama Al Attar is the resident Alim of the Islamic Shia Ithna Asheri Association of Edmonton, member organization of NASIMCO and was on the annual pilgrimage, Hajj to Saudi Arabia.

The Canadian Broadcast Corporation reported the following:

"The attack took place at a cemetery in Medina early Sunday morning and was reportedly sparked when religious police approached an international group of pilgrims that included the imam, Usama Al-Atar of Edmonton. Witnesses said angry words were spoken, then things calmed down. That's when a single member of the religious police approached Al-Atar, offered to shake his hand and then called out to a group of men at a taxi stand. They rushed in and began beating Al-Atar, kicking him and attempting to throttle him, the witnesses said. Medina central police arrived, escorted the Canadian to a car and drove away, according to the witnesses. Several witnesses said the attack was unprovoked, CBC journalist Muhammad Lila wrote on his Twitter page."

NASIMCO is actively working with local and federal government officials towards the immediate release of Sheikh Usama Al Attar. Relevant leaders of our communities in Canada, Council of European Jamaats, Africa Federation and The World Federation officials are working in conjunction with NASIMCO to strengthen our efforts. Contact with the Canadian Ministry of Foreign affairs, local members of Parliament and media outlets are being established. Updates on the situation will be released as they become available.

Does Obama understand what's been unleashed?

A week after news of an alleged Iranian assassination plot in Washington rocked the international scene, public details remain scant. The Obama administration - including the president himself - has spoken with unequivocal certitude regarding the Iranian government’s intentions and involvement. But until he uses the same level of candour to publicly disclose detailed evidence, we will not know anything beyond allegations.
Pundits will continue speculating with whodunnit analysis that constructs an incomplete puzzle, but engaging in hypotheticals does not paint a clearer picture.
More telling are the increasingly dangerous geopolitical ramifications of this crisis. Full Story

From the Desk of Hojjatul Islam, Mohammad al-Musawi (m,a,)

Imām Ja'far   al-Sādiq (a.s.) said:
“Three actions are the best;

  • People should receive complete justice from you so much so that you desire for them what you desire for yourself.
  • You must co-operate monetarily with your brothers in faith.
  • You must remember Allāh (s.w.t.) in every condition.

That remembrance is not merely Subhanallah (Glory be to Allāh) or Alhamdo Lillah (Praise be to Allāh), (it is remembering Allāh (s.w.t.), always). When some duty comes upon you which Allāh (s.w.t.) has ordered you must fulfill it, and when some prohibited act comes before you; leave it.”

Dr Syed Ahmed: “In the name of Allah”

Ranchi: The Jharkhand High Court on Thursday dismissed a petition that has termed the oath of Governor Dr Syed Ahmed as unconstitutional because of his choice of word while taking the oath of office and secrecy.

Seminar on "Day of Qods" at Zainabia

Maulana Meraj explaining Qods Day  
A seminar was held last night on "What is Qods?" at Zainabia, Mumbai. Wherein Olama and scholars put their view on the subject.
The seminar commenced with the recitation of holy Qur'an by Salman. The anchor (naazim) of the programme was Maulana Zaheer Abbas Rizvi, who very nicely guided the programme with a beautiful conclusion and gave facts and figures on the Palestine issue.
Maulana Meraj Sahab gave a new dimension to the whole concept of the Arab-Israel conflict and was very optimistic that soon a victory is in store for the Palestinians and the Isarel is going to persih, as the Arab people have awakened. He also gave the importance of Masjid Aqsa, the first Qibla of the Muslims.
Javed Rizvi, the trustee of Zainabia Trust also read his paper and gave a brief history of the occupation of Palestine by the Zionists. He said that it is the hypocrisy of the Arab rulers that has dragged this occupation for more than 60 years. He also condemned America for its unconditional support to Israel and is a partner in the crime against humanity, atrocities on Palestinian children and women by Israel.
Mashhud Danapuri, a poet and a thinker shared his poem on the issue.
Hujjatol Islam Maulana Sayyed Hasnain Kararvi explained the movement of Qods and its origin by Ayatullah Imam Khomeini (r.a.) after the Islamic revolution in Iran in 1979. It was his call for the liberation of Palestine, and reserving the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadhan as the "Day of Qods."
Maulana Zaheer Abbas sahab concluded by reminding that the media has always projected the golden dome of the rock of Jerusalem and not the photo of the Aqsa Masjid to misguide the International Community. He also recounted the first protest rally on Qods that was arranged by marhum Ghulam Hasnain Kararvi at Jhoola Maidan, Madanpura in south Bombay.
After the seminar certain youths confessed that uptil now they were unaware of this grave situation of the Qods, but, from the year next they will arranged the protests in the mass scale.

Niyyat of Fasting: 30th Sha'baan or 1st of Ramadhan

1559. It is not necessary for a person to pass the niyyat for fasting through his mind or to say that he would be fasting on the following day. In fact, it is sufficient for him to decide that in obedience to the command of Allah he will not perform from the time of Adhan for Fajr prayers up to Maghrib, any act which may invalidate the fast.
And in order to ensure that he has been fasting throughout this time he should begin abstaining earlier than the Adhan for Fajr prayers, and continue to refrain for some time after sunset from acts which invalidate a fast.
1560. A person can make niyyat every night of the holy month of Ramadhan that he would be fasting on the following day, and it is better to make niyyat on the first night of Ramadhan that he would fast throughout that month.
1577. If one doubts whether it is the last day of Sha'ban or the first day of Ramadhan then the fast on that day is not obligatory. If however, somebody wants to observe fast on that day he cannot do so with the intention of observing the Ramadhan fast, but if he makes an intention that if it is Ramadhan then it is the Ramadhan fast and if it is not Ramadhan then it is qadha fast or some other fast like that, his fast will be valid.
But it is better to observe the fast with the intention of qadha fast or some other fast, and if it is known later that it was Ramadhan then it will automatically be Ramadhan fast. And even if he makes a niyyat of a natural fast, and later it becomes known that it is Ramadhan, it will be sufficient (i.e. that fast will be counted as the Ramadhan fast).

1578. If it is doubtful whether it is the last day of Sha'ban or the first of Ramadhan, and a person observes a qadha or a Mustahab fast or some other fast on that day, and later comes to know the same day that it is the first of Ramadhan, then he should convert the intention to the Ramadhan fast.

Now, Jews Protest Against their Government

Thousands of Israelis are set to stage a demonstration in Israel to protest at the high cost of living and social inequality in the occupied lands.
Fresh rallies are planned for Saturday in several Israeli cities including Tel Aviv against the economic policies of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
There have already been weeks of anti-regime demonstrations in Israel with many people arrested during the protests. The demonstrators say they can no longer afford the sky-rocketing housing prices, which have jumped by 50 percent in recent years.
They are also calling on the regime to curb the high costs of fuel, food and healthcare. The protests have exposed a deep middle-class frustration over the economy, presenting Netanyahu with his biggest domestic challenge yet.
On Friday, hundreds of people also held a demonstration in Tel Aviv, warning that they would block roads all over Israel on August 1 if the cabinet of Netanyahu fails to meet their demands. Read Full

15th Sha'baan: Day of the Oppressed

Books Exhibition at Moghul Masjid on 17th July 2011
As per the Islamic Hijri calender, today is the 1177th birthday of Hadhrat Imam Mahdi (atfs). It is celebrated all over the world. People are awake the whole night and perform Ebadat (supplications), remember the departed souls, prepare sweet dishes, attend poetic functions, visit graveyards, celebrate and remember Imam of the time, Hadhrat Hujjat ibnil Hasan al Mahdi (may Allah hastens his re-appearance).
The innate nature of man has been embedded for the want of saviour who can pull him off during the time of disturbances and perils and finally restores his dignity. The man has always been in the state of hope, that there is someone who can put to an end his calamities brought to them by fellow humans, who for the hunger of power to rule always tried to exploit all the means of oppression and deceit.
The prophets and messengers were the deputy of Allah on the earth and they had been sent for this great cause. They stood firm against the oppressors and tyrants and never compromised on their beliefs and divine message. They have guided their nation towards God and rescued them from the clutches of despots and unjust rulers.
One Lac twenty four thousand prophets from Adam to Hadhrat Mohammad (sawaw). They all were to guide the mankind towards the path of Allah, the Truth. The humility and humbleness was the required criteria to tread the path of salvation. The arrogance was never tolerated to achieve the divine Truth, in fact it spoilt the accomplishments. The people were tested and tried after they were guided on this divine course. Those who shed the love of this material world were successful and those who were deceived by the glitter of this world and allured by it had to pay with their eternal place in Paradise.
The last and final representative of Almighty Allah, Hadhrat Imam Mahdi (atfs), is calling to those who wish to reserve the promised abode in the Heaven, to get ready to help him to implement the divine promise of getting rid from Injustice and tyranny from the face of the earth. And the pre-requisite for this enrollment is to transform ones self and to implement J U S T I C E on himself and his family, then, only he will be accepted to be the part of the group of helpers of Imam (a.s.).

Former IMF chief, Dominique Strauss-Kahn: A Zionist

Former IMF chief recently charged with rape says Israel is first thing on his mind every morning.

Although his alleged sexual exploits are making waves, it is Israel, not women that is in former IMF Chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn's heart.
In an interview with the newspaper "Liberation" back in April, just over a month before he made headlines for attempted rape charges (that are looking increasingly shaky), DSK told the French daily that only three things could prevent him from becoming the next president of France - his money, his women and his Judaism.

Now the Tallest Clock Tower of the World in Makkah

MAKKAH – The tallest golden minaret in the world, which has been erected on top of the Makkah Clock Tower, will broadcast the call for prayer (Adhan) from the Grand Mosque in Makkah through special loudspeakers that will carry the sounds to people almost 7 kilometers away.
On special Islamic occasions, such as the beginning of the Hijri months and Eids, 16 special vertical lights will flash 10 kilometers into the sky.
During the Adhan, 21,000 lamps on the highest point on Makkah Clock send brilliant white and green lights to the sky; they can be seen from a distance of 30 kilometers. The lights indicate the beginning of time for prayer, especially for people with special needs such as those with weak hearing and those far away from the Grand Mosque.
The Makkah Clock Tower stands 601 meters. The height of the clock from its base to the highest point at the peak of the crescent is 251 meters.
The tower’s height makes it the world’s second-tallest building after the 828-meter Burj Khalifa in Dubai. The clock, which began showing time about 11 months ago, is part of the structure that cost some SR11 billion to construct, officials have said.
The front and rear of the four faces are 43 meters by 43 meters and the two side faces are 43 meters by 39 meters.
“Allahu Akbar” (Allah is the Greatest), in Arabic, can be seen on the top part of the clock.
The letter “Alif” in “Allah” is more than 23 meters tall and the crescent, with a 23-meter diameter, is the largest crescent ever made.
The two testimonies, “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is His Prophet,” can be seen at the top of the two side faces of the clock, which has been designed in an Islamic style, according to the most precise Islamic criteria.
The clock, which weighs 36,000 tons, is more than six times larger in diameter than London’s famed Big Ben.
During the day its face is white and the indicators are black. At night, the face changes to green and the indicators change to white.
More than 90 million pieces of colored glass mosaic embellish the sides of the clock, which is visible from all corners of the city, SPA has said. Elevators will take visitors up to a huge viewing balcony just underneath the faces, a four-story astronomical observatory and an Islamic museum. The Clock Tower is the landmark feature of the seven-tower King Abdulaziz Endowment hotel complex. The project is part of efforts to develop the old city and make it more capable of catering to pilgrims.
The clock reflects a goal by some Muslims to replace the 127-year-old Universal Time standard – originally called Greenwich Mean Time – with Makkah Mean Time.
At a conference in Doha in 2008, Muslim clerics and scholars said Makkah time is the true global meridian. They said Makkah is the center of the world and that the Greenwich standard was imposed by the West in 1884.
