Jerusalem is the capital of the future Caliphate

Yunus Ibn Maysarah relates that the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said, هَذَا الأَمْرُ كَائِنٌ بَعْدِي بِالْمَدِينَةِ ، ثُمَّ بِالشَّامِ ، ثُمَّ بِالْجَزِيرَةِ ، ثُمَّ بِالْعِرَاقِ ، ثُمَّ بِالْمَدِينَةِ ، ثُمَّ بِبَيْتِ الْمَقْدِسِ ، فَإِذَا كَانَ بِبَيْتِ الْمَقْدِسِ فَثَمَّ عُقْرُ دَارِهَا ، وَلَنْ يُخْرِجَهَا قَوْمٌ فَتَعُودَ إِلَيْهِمْ أَبَدًا “This matter (the Caliphate) will be after me in Madinah, then in Al-Sham, then in the peninsula, then in Iraq, then in Madinah, then in Bait ul-Maqdis (Jerusalem). If it is in Bait ul-Maqdis, its home country is there, and if any people expel it, it will not return there forever.” [Ibn Asakir, 368]

Egypt Mosque Massacre: “As for anyone who kills a believer deliberately, his repayment is Hell, remaining in it for ever.”

BY MOZZIMAL HUSSAIN, Revolution Observer Considerable confusion and scepticism surround the official version of the events of the 24th of November 2017. What is clear is that the al-Rawda mosque located in the northern portion of the Sinai peninsula was attacked by roughly 40 gunmen during Friday congregational prayers. It is also clear that the assailants who arrived in four or five pickups seemed, from the accounts of local residents, intent on maximizing the causalities of this attack.

Response to Lancashire council’s Halal Meat ban

Lancashire in the UK has become the first council to ban unstunned halal meat in school dinners. The council leader, Geoff Driver, pushed for the ban on non-stunned halal meat in schools. He said: “This is an animal welfare issue, nothing more, nothing less. My concern that animals that are slaughtered without being pre-stunned go through a lot of stress and torment when they’re actually dying.”

Muhammad Rabbani’s Conviction: “Those who do not judge by whatever Allah has revealed are oppressors.”

Mohammad Rabbani was this week convicted under the UK’s oppressive counter-terrorism laws for failing to reveal his password in order to protect the privacy of his client. He said, “If privacy and confidentiality are crimes, then the law stands condemned. CAGE and I are glad we brought this case, and the result indicates that our only option is to change the law.”

Genocide of Rohingya Muslims: “Our Lord, take us out of this town whose inhabitants are wrongdoers”

وَمَا لَكُمْ لَا تُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَالْمُسْتَضْعَفِينَ مِنَ الرِّجَالِ وَالنِّسَاءِ وَالْوِلْدَانِ الَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا أَخْرِجْنَا مِنْ هَذِهِ الْقَرْيَةِ الظَّالِمِ أَهْلُهَا وَاجْعَلْ لَنَا مِنْ لَدُنْكَ وَلِيًّا وَاجْعَلْ لَنَا مِنْ لَدُنْكَ نَصِيرًا “What reason could you have for not fighting in the Way of Allah – for those men, women and children who are oppressed and say, ‘Our Lord, take us out of this town whose inhabitants are wrongdoers! Give us a protector from You! Give us a helper from You!’?” (An-Nisaa, 4:75)

Al-Aqsa Crisis: “Who could do greater wrong than someone who bars access to the mosques of Allah?”

Allah (Most High) says: وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنْ مَنَعَ مَسَاجِدَ اللَّهِ أَنْ يُذْكَرَ فِيهَا اسْمُهُ وَسَعَىٰ فِي خَرَابِهَا ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ مَا كَانَ لَهُمْ أَنْ يَدْخُلُوهَا إِلَّا خَائِفِينَ ۚ لَهُمْ فِي الدُّنْيَا خِزْيٌ وَلَهُمْ فِي الْآخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ “Who could do greater wrong than someone who bars access to the mosques of Allah, preventing His name from being remembered in them, and goes about destroying them? Such people will never be able to enter them – except in fear. They will have disgrace in the dunya and in the akhira they will have a terrible punishment.” (Al-Baqara, 2:114)
