An Open Letter to Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan

An Open Letter to Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan

In the name of The God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Dear Rania Al Abdullah,
As-salamu alaikum.
As a Muslim- and as a slave of Allah- I must advise you concerning your behavior and the behavior of your husband, Abdullah ibn Hussein.

An English translation of what Allah says in The Qur’an is:

 “To Allah doth belong the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is therein, and it is He who hath power over all things.” (Sura: Al Maida #5; ayah # 120)
“O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.”  (Sura Al Maida; ayah #51)
“Certainly they disbelieve who say: ‘Allah is Christ the son of Mary.’ But said Christ; ‘O children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord’ whoever joins other gods with Allah,-Allah will forbid him the garden, and the fire will be his abode. There will be for the wrong-doers be no one to help. They disbelieve who say Allah is one of three for there is no God except one God. If they desist not from their word, verily a grievous chastisement will befall the disbelievers among them.” (Maida; aya’an #72-73)
“Oh you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just- that is next to piety; and fear Allah. For Allah is well acquainted with all that ye do. (Sura: Maida; ayah #8)
“Allah forgiveth not that partners should be set up with Him...” (Sura: Al Nisaa #4; ayah #48)
“Oh ye who believe! If ye obey the unbelievers, they will drive you back on your heels, and ye will turn back to your own loss.” (Sura: Al Imran #3; ayah # 149)
“O ye who believe! Devour not usury, doubled and multiplied. But fear Allah-that ye may prosper” (Sura: Al Imran; ayah #130)
“Say! ‘ O Allah1 Lord of power, thou givest power to who thou pleaseth, and thou strippest of power from whom thou pleases… verily over all things thou hast power.”  (Sura: Al Imran; ayah #26)

Everyone and everything belongs to Allah. All of the earth belongs to Allah-including Jordan.  Your husband-as the leader of Jordan- has a trust from Allah for which he is accountable in front of Allah on The Day of Judgment. Your husband should govern Jordan in accordance with the teachings of The Qur’an- not against the teachings of The Qur’an. Some of his policies are against The Qur’an. Therefore, he should repent to Allah and mend his ways.

“To Allah doth belong the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is therein, and it is He who hath power over all things.” (Sura: Al Maida #5; ayah #120)
What are some of his policies which are against The Qur’an? One of the teachings of The Qur’an is justice.

“Oh you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just- that is next to piety; and fear Allah. For Allah is well acquainted with all that ye do. (Sura: Maida; ayah #8).

Is your husband just? No! He isn’t… He is a tyrant. Some of his policies are policies of tyranny. A leader should always be open to advice and criticism. Public criticism of a leader-or his policy- should not be criminalized. To criminalize such criticism is tyranny. There is a law in Jordan which criminalizes criticism. Any Jordanian citizen who openly criticizes your husband is risking the possibility of being arrested and jailed for two or three years.
When your husband first became the leader of Jordan he would speak passionately about the rights of citizens-yet, he has violated those rights time and time again. An example of this is his policy against anyone who criticizes the policy of other countries. Within the last few months a Jordanian Muslim brother-Zaki Bani Rsheid- was arrested for posting an article on the internet which criticized the government of the United Arab Emirates. This is clearly tyranny… but it is more than that. This Muslim brother was obeying Allah, and because of his obedience to Allah he was arrested!
Some other policies which are against The Qur’an include: involvement in Riba; sanctioning and supporting the tyranny of the regimes of other countries; indirectly approving of kufr through his friendship with The Pope; being involved in idolatry through not destroying statues which are in Jordan; a peace treaty with The Zionists, and involving Jordanian soldiers in situations that they shouldn’t be in.

Involvement in Riba:
Allah makes it clear in The Qur’an that trade is trade and that riba is riba. These are two completely different things. Any amount of interest is riba- even a Qursh, or Fil of interest is riba. It is not acceptable for any Muslim country to be involved in Riba -no matter how small it may be.
Jordan is involved with The IMF (International Monetary Fund). Any loans from The IMF is unacceptable. Why? Because any loan involves interest; and any interest-of any amount- is riba. Anyone who is involved with riba is risking Allah’s anger. Your husband and his administration should not get any loans from The IMF. He should stop paying any money to The IMF.

Sanctioning and Supporting Tyranny:
Al-Sisi of Egypt is a tyrant who has imprisoned the democratically elected President of Egypt. He has slaughtered hundreds (perhaps thousands) of Egyptian civilians on the streets of Egypt just because they peacefully protested against him. He has also jailed large numbers of civilians for speaking up against him; as well as journalists who dared to write the truth about what was happening in Egypt.
Your husband and his administration has approved of Al-Sisi’s behavior in two separate occasions.
 The first occasion was when your husband went to Egypt to congratulate Al-Sisi on his being “elected”. In Al-Sisi’s attempt to validate his criminal behavior he held a farcical election-an election in which more than ninety percent of the Egyptian people boycotted. In boycotting that election the Egyptians overwhelmingly rejected Al-Sisi and his behavior.
The second occasion was when Al-Sisi came to Jordan to talk to your husband about being allies in fighting against “terrorism”. Such talk is hypocritical. Al-Sisi, himself, is a terrorist. And your husband is supportive of his terrorism. Allah says in The Qur’an that anyone who is supportive of any evil shall bear the burden of that evil. Your husband is supportive of Al-Sisi’s evil-therefore, according to The Qur’an, your husband is an accomplice to Al-Sisi’s evil behavior.

Approving of Kufr:
Is your husband a Muslim? Really? Than why is he sanctioning kufr? Through your husband’s friendship with The Pope he is sanctioning kufr. Anyone who thinks that Prophet Isa (Jesus) is The God is making kufr with The God. The Pope not only is making kufr himself; but he is promoting kufr.
Involvement in Idolatry:
 There is an idol in Jordan-it is in a place called Karama. All statues are idols. Your husband and his administration should publicly destroy this idol. Prophet Muhammad destroyed the idols that were in The Kaaba. There should be no idols/statues in any Muslim country- such a thing is unacceptable.

Peace Treaty with the Zionists:
  What should I say about this? Where should I begin? Palestine is a Muslim country whose borders are from the river to the sea. The Israeli State has absolutely no legitimacy. The Israeli State is a product of colonialism. The U.N. has never had the authority to create nation-states.
The Israeli State is a mafia that has been committing state terrorism against The Palestinian people for decades. It has been stealing land and victimizing civilians-for decades!
The very idea of any Muslim making a peace treaty with such an entity-much less being a friend to it-is absurd. Is your husband a Muslim? Why is he helping the Zionists to commit atrocities against Palestinian civilians? With all the evil that The Zionists have done- and still are doing- why is he a friend of theirs?

Involving Jordanian Soldiers in Situations Outside of Jordan:
Jordanian soldiers should not be involved in any action outside of Jordan. Their involvement in such countries as: Afghanistan and Syria is irresponsible. They should not be used as expendable pawns for the agenda of The New World Order.
 What is my advice to you? You are a representative of your husband and his administration. As his representative, you are accountable in front of Allah for whatever evil he does. You should be outspoken against that evil. For example: You should be outspoken against your husband’s tyranny. If you do not speak up against it-than you are an accomplice to it.

“If Allah touch thee with affliction, none can remove it but He…He is Supreme over His servants. And He is The Wise, acquainted with all things” (translation of Qur’an; Sura: Al-Anam #6; Aya’an #17-18)
“He is supreme over his servants, and He sets guards over you…Say, He hath power to send calamities on you from above and below…” (translation of Qur’an: Sura: Al- Anam #6;Ayat #61-65)

An Open Letter to Abdul Aziz Al Sheikh of the Saudi Regime

October 29,2014
written by Sheila Quinn

To The God do we belong and to Him we will return.

Qur’an: “And blessed is He to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all between them; with Him is the knowledge of the Hour (of judgment); and to Him shall ye be brought back. (Sura: Zukhruf (Gold Ornaments) # 43; ayah #85)

As a Muslim to a Muslim I am giving you advice. As Muslims it is our duty to give advice to other Muslims. Oh, Abdul Aziz Al Sheikh of the Saudi regime fear Allah. Oh, Abdul Aziz Al Sheikh of the Saudi regime Allah knows what you say and what you do. Oh, Abdul Aziz Al Sheikh of the Saudi regime do not slander believers. Oh, Abdul Aziz Al Sheikh of the Saudi regime whoever supports an evil cause will share in its burden.

  Oh, Abdul Aziz Al Sheikh of the Saudi regime do not be arrogant-all creatures of Allah are fallible. Allah is the only one who is infallible. Oh, Abdul Aziz Al Sheikh of the Saudi regime it is Allah, Himself, who decides who is guided and who is not. It is Allah, Himself, who is the source of all knowledge and wisdom.

 Do not be arrogant and ignore the advice of a Muslim sister just because she does not have a piece of paper from a university. Allah guides whom He wills; Allah gives knowledge and wisdom to whomever He wills.

There is tyranny within many Muslim countries. The Hijaz is one of those countries. The Saudi regime is a regime which is guilty of tyranny. Allah hates tyranny. There is no barrier between Allah and the supplications of those who are oppressed. Fear Allah and do not support those who are oppressive.

As Muslims it is our duty to be just. We should look at each case separately and evaluate it separately. We should look at each group separately and evaluate it separately. It is foolish of you to put the groups of: ISIS, Al Nusra Front, and The Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt together. They are three separate groups with different: leadership, agenda and actions. Each group should only be evaluated within its own context. To do anything else is unacceptable. 

Egypt is another Muslim country in which there is tyranny. Mubarak was a tyrant and Al-Sisi is a tyrant. Anyone who supports Al-Sisi shares the burden of the evil that he has done-and is doing. Anyone who supports Al-Sisi is accountable in front of Allah for the massacre of large numbers of Muslim civilians who were slaughtered by Al-Sisi and his regime.

Oh, Abdul Aziz Al Sheikh of the Saudi regime do not think that you have a high status with Allah just because some humans have given you the title of “Grand Mufti”.

(In response to: 
"Saudi Grand Mufti: ISIS, Al-Nusra and Muslim Brotherhood have no connection to Islam"

Some Thoughts About : Taqlid, Shirk and The Islamic Nation

August 9, 2012
Ramadan 22,1433- after ten thirty at night.

Bismillah, Ir Rahman, Ir Raheem.(In the name of The God, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful)

This blog is my online column. I usually write about political things on this blog. But today, I feel I need to make an exception. Although, what I am writing about isn't political- it is very much current events.
Well... These are some thoughts about: The Islamic Nation, The Islamic Faith and Muslims. We have just started the last third of the month of Ramadan. I am very mentally active. During this month of Ramadan I have spent some time on the internet... sharing information about Islam with others and acting as an advocate of my Muslim brothers and sisters. At one point I came across a clip in which a Muslim brother claimed that taqlid is an essential part of The Islamic Faith. I listened to everything he said- and found many things that he said to be nonsensical. One of the things that he said was that every Muslim was involved in taqlid. I told him that this is wrong. I am a Muslim, but I am not involved in taqlid. I also said that Allah says in some of the ayat(verses)in The Qur'an that anyone who was involved in taqlid was involved in shirk (a.k.a. blasphemy/giving partners to the One God.)

Today I got a response from him. I mentioned in my comment that there are ayat(verses) in the Qur'an that says that taqlid is shirk. Did this individual ask me for reference as to what ayat I was talking about? No, he didn't. What he did do was to be confrontational and argumentative with me. He basically said that taqlid wasn't shirk because every Muslim, including the Sahaba (Companions of Prophet Muhammad) were involved in it. Is he a "scholar"? perhaps... I wouldn't be surprised if many so called "Muslim scholars" who have a university degree in Islamic Shariah did agree with him.

Now, why am I being outspoken on an issue that many "scholars" would find to be unacceptable? There are two reasons. The first reason is that I am a seeker of truth. I came to The Islamic Faith as a seeker of truth and I understand The Islamic Faith as a seeker of truth. What is the truth? The Qur'an is the truth! As a Muslim I take everything that Allah says in The Qur'an with tremendous respect and acceptance. If the Qur'an says one thing and the scholars say another thing who should I believe? As Allah's slave I should believe The Qur'an - not the scholars! As a seeker of truth I am very skeptical about things that I read and are told to me. I perceive all human beings to be fallible creatures who are limited in both knowledge and wisdom. Although scholars are supposed to be experts who have more knowledge in a subject than most people do-that doesn't mean that they are infallible beings who don't make mistakes. I am outspoken about this issue because I must speak the ands, ifs or buts about it.

The second reason is that I am a slave of Allah's (of The Creator's). As His slave I am obligated to obey Him and His Messenger- Prophet Muhammad. In order to obey my creator I must speak out against that which I know -without a doubt- to be wrong. There are a couple of hadeeth of Prophet Muhammad where he orders us to speak out about what is wrong. Also in The Qur'an Allah orders us to speak the truth. One place is in Sura (chapter) "Asr" ("Time Through the Ages")# 103. An english translation of what is said in Asr is: "By the time, verily man is in loss, except such as have faith, and do righteous deeds, and in the mutual enjoining of truth, and of patience and of constancy."

Taqlid is not only wrong- but it is shirk. Allah says so in The Qur'an. What is some of the evidence of this? Well...part of the evidence is in Sura (chapter) "Ar-Rum" (The Romans). In Ayain (verses) 31-32 there is evidence. An english translation is; "Turn ye in repentance to Him, and fear Him: establish regular prayers, and be not ye among those who join gods with Allah; those who split up the religion and become sects. Each party rejoicing in that which is with itself!" These ayain is just part of the evidence that taqlid is shirk. Any Muslim who is involved in taqlid is not following Prophet Muhammad; and anyone who is following Prophet Muhammad is not involved in taqlid!

Those who are involved in taqlid remind me of Christians who believe in the trinity. Christians who believe in the trinity insist that they are monotheists when - in fact- they are polytheists. Same thing with those who are involved in taqlid. They insist they are following Prophet Muhammad -when in fact, they are ignoring his words and the words of the one who sent him.

What does this have to do with The Islamic Nation? The Islamic Nation is a ship that is sinking. What is causing it to sink? What is causing it to sink is: taqlid, mathahab (madthabs), fatwa and ijtihad.

The Egyptian Coup and The Global Oligarchy

Saturday, June 16,2012

It is obvious that The Global Oligarchy is behind what has recently happened in Egypt. It is not surprising that judges who were appointed by Mubarak would disband a parliament that is representative of The Egyptian people. Those who criticize it as a coup are right on target. But it is more than a coup, it is the global oligarchy attempting to retain its control over Egypt. I wonder just how many Egyptians like the reality that their country is under the control of the global oligarchy. I wonder how many Egyptian secularists approve of Egypt being under the control of foreigners.

Earlier the judges threatened to disband the parliament because of the issue of how many members in parliament were elected as "independent". But they did not disband it. They waited until the election for president was in just a few days; and then they disbanded it.

What happened before it was disbanded? Well, there was a need to write a new constitution. Therefore, members for a committee who would write the new constitution were chosen. All sections of the Egyptian society were represented, and therefore did have a voice in the committee. "Islamists"- members of The Freedom and Justice Party and The Al-Nour party- of course dominated the committee. These two groups combined got seventy percent of the electoral vote. Seven out of ten Egyptians voted for either the Freedom and Justice Party or The Al-Nour Party. Therefore, it is logical that the "Islamists" should dominate the committee. Yet, some Egyptian secularists objected to this fact and complained to the Mubarak appointed judges- the same judges who ultimately disbanded the parliament. Some secularists complained that the new constitution should have been written before the elections. But such a position is illogical. Who would be on the committee that wrote the new constitution? Who would decide who would be on such a committee? The only logical way for the committee to have been chosen is by those who were elected by the Egyptian people. Now SCAF is threatening to write the new constitution.

Who do I blame for the parliament being disbanded? I do not blame the judges who were appointed by Mubarak. They were only acting according to their nature. I blame those secularists who went to those same Mubarak appointed judges and complained about the "Islamists" dominating the constitutional committee. It is obvious that the great majority of Egyptians support the "Islamists". The Egyptian secularists should understand this and accept it. Do these same secularists want Mubarak's regime back-minus Mubarak? Do they want the global oligarchy to rule Egypt through puppets- like it did under Mubarak?

The Global Oligarchy Longs For Control Of Gaza

After reading a news article from "Russia Today" of an interview with Abbas I started thinking about the whole issue of The Doha Agreement between Abbas and Meshaal. And yes, I consider it to be an agreement between two individuals-not two groups! Although Meshaal was technically the leader of Hamas when he signed the agreement, he was making major decisions concerning Hamas's policy without consultation with Hamas leaders in Gaza. Because of the lack of consultation with those in Gaza, I consider the whole Doha Agreement to be invalid- perhaps there are many Palestinians who agree with me on this.

Those who are living in Gaza are not staying in Gaza-with its poverty- for fun and games. They are not subjecting themselves-and their loved ones- to the continuous terrorism of the Israeli State just so the Zionists can gradually steal all of their land. Gaza- and all of Palestine from the ocean to The Jordan River- is their native land. It is also the native land of Palestinians living in the West Bank- as well as- Palestinians who have been forced to live in other countries. It is because of their determination to get back all of their land that they are being patient with the difficulties of living in Gaza. I do not think that Abbas-nor Meshaal- are speaking for those who are enduring the mischief that The Zionists are perpetrating.

The West Bank is lost to the Zionists. The Zionists are slowly stealing Palestinian land from the Palestinians in The West Bank and in Jerusalem. It seems as if the global oligarchy is attempting to gain control of Gaza in order for the Zionists to steal all of the land in Gaza- as they are in the process of stealing land in The West Bank.

Abbas is a puppet of the global oligarchy. I have said this before, and I say it again. Abbas is a puppet of the global oligarchy. When Meshaal agreed to Abbas he also became a puppet of the global oligarchy. Instead of bringing unity to the Palestinians, The Doha Agreement has brought division within Hamas.

Such an agreement works in the interests of both the global oligarchy and The Zionists-not The Palestinians. Why? Because if it is implemented it would put Abbas (a puppet of the global oligarchy) in charge of the security of Gaza-thereby opening Gaza up to the Zionists gaining control of Gaza. It is absolute idiocy to put Abbas in charge. Abbas has proven himself to be totally incompetent. His policy of nonviolence in The West Bank has brought only results of the murder of Palestinians and the stealing of their land. But, refusal to implement would bring division within Hamas, itself. In other words The Doha Agreement is a win-win situation for both the global oligarchy and The Zionists.

Meshaal, Abbas, and The Doha Agreement

Within the last few days Meshaal, as the leader of Hamas, signed an agreement which is both illegal and unethical. I have read a number of articles about him and this agreement. My initial response was one of anger. I wanted to speak out against him, but decided against it because I thought of it as an internal Hamas issue and a Palestinian issue.

But the more I read about it and the more I learn about it, the more angry I became. I have come to the conclusion that I was wrong. This agreement is not just an internal Hamas issue, nor an internal Palestinian issue-but an issue of The Islamic Nation. It is an issue that ALL Muslims have a right to speak on!

Why do I say this? Because, Palestine is a territory of The Islamic Nation. It's borders are between the ocean and The Jordan River. The Israeli State is an illegal state that has absolutely no legitimacy whatsoever. The U.N. partition of Palestine was conditioned upon the The Palestinians accepting it. They rejected such a partition. Only with their acceptance of the partition will The Israeli State become "legally" legitimate. The second reason is because Al- Aqsa Masjid (Al Aqsa Mosque)is in Palestine. Al-Aqsa has been-and is continuing to be- threatened with destruction.

For the last few weeks I have been reading different articles about Meshaal. Meshaal is from The West Bank. Meshaal is calling for a change in strategy. He is calling for adopting non-violent protests as a replacement for armed resistance. (Non-violent protests have proven to be ineffective with The Zionists. Fatah has used such strategy in The West Bank and the results are the loss of land and lives. Armed resistance is the only way to stop the aggression of The Zionists. Any other way has been proven to be impractical.) Hamas officials in Gaza have both the right-and the responsibility- to reject the agreement. They have every right in the world to refuse cooperation in its implementation. Since the agreement involves Gaza, the cooperation of the officials of Gaza are vital to it's implementation.

Hamas should continue to work for the liberation of all of Palestine through armed resistance. Any other way has been proven to be totally ineffective.

As for Abbas, he has proven himself to be a puppet of those who want to destroy Al-Aqsa Masjid (Al-Aqsa Mosque). He has proven himself to be a puppet of the global oligarchy- which includes the leadership of both The U.S. and The European Union. It is clear that the global oligarchy wants Al-Aqsa Masjid to be destroyed. It is clear that Abbas is their puppet. Others in the "interim government" may be technocrats, but Abbas is not! The Zionists are in the process of: stealing all of the West Bank; evicting all Muslims from Jerusalem, and destroying Al-Aqsa Masjid. Abbas and the leaders of Arab countries want peace with The Zionists??? All of them-including King Abdullah of Jordan- are puppets of the global oligarchy!

Until now Gaza has been a stronghold of Palestinian resistance-unlike The West Bank. Does Meshaal want to open up Gaza to The Zionists -like The West bank?

Here are some quotes from articles that I have read:

"Meshaal might be able to put down the unprecedented rebellion against him, but would need the good will and cooperation of Hamas leaders in Gaza to make the agreement work." ("Public rift as Hamas strongman in Gaza rejects unity deal")

"On Sunday, the head of the bloc of Hamas legislators in Gaza, Ismail al-Ashkar, alleged that Fatah has not carried out promised confidence building measures, such as releasing Hamas loyalists held in the West Bank." ("Public rift as Hamas strongman in Gaza rejects unity deal")

"MPs of the Hamas majority in the Palestinian parliament called on Thursday for the scrapping of a reconciliation accord with Fatah on constitutional grounds.

"After examining the question of Mahmud Abbas taking on the premiership as well as the presidency" and consultation with judicial experts, such a scenario was found to be contrary to the Basic Law, 31 MPs said in a statement." ("Hamas MP's call for scrapping of Fatah Deal")

"Meshaal has been based in Damascus since 2001, fearing for his safety and hoping to avoid the restrictions on his movement in Gaza. He has been the chief leader of Hamas' political wing since 2004."("Hamas political chief to step down")

A Global City and Street Gangs

November 29,2011

It upsets me when I see good websites on the internet publish articles that support tyrants. A few such websites include: "Intifada Palestine", "Global Research" and "Prison Planet".

Today I read an article which promotes the lies of a tyrant known as Assad. It is the purpose of "Intifada Palestine" to have articles about Palestine. Such articles are excellent. But several times this website has published articles that are nothing more than pro-Assad propaganda. It has described itself as being a website that is about Palestine-yet it publishes articles which has nothing to do with Palestine. The editors of this website are acting contrary to its purpose.

There are a number of different street gangs in the city known as "Earth". The global oligarchy is one of the gangs. Pro Qaddafi people are another gang. Those who are pro-Assad are yet another gang. Why did the global oligarchy get involved in Libya? Well, one of the obvious reasons is because their agenda and Qaddafi's agenda clashed. The global oligarchy's agenda is to rule all of humanity. Qaddafi's agenda was to be emperor of Africa. The agendas of these two gangs clashed, so the global oligarchy went after Qaddafi.

As far as Assad is concerned both he and his father have been terrorizing the people of Syria for decades. Both the Assad gang and the Qaddafi gang are terrorists who have been terrorizing the people of their countries for decades. Both gangs have treated popular dissent the same way- through brutal oppression of the people. When demonstrators come out to the streets they are shot at and murdered by police and military personnel. Both gangs have been some what successful in promoting themselves as Pro-Palestinian activists. They are using the Palestinian issue to promote themselves.

It angers me that some anti-oligarchy groups are so ignorant about what is going on that they support tyrants who are massacring civilians -just because the global oligarchy is being hostile towards such tyrants. The public in general should be aware of the global oligarchy, but they also should be aware that there are others-other than the global oligarchy- who are involved in tyranny.
