Since Tommy Robinson's demise from EDL, a new right wing anti Islam group has emerged called Britain First. They go into the mosques occasionally threatening them with action if they build mosques, and highlight the need of community members to do something about the "illegal" activities that are known to go on in their own communities. Some of their videos can be watched at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMZfu6eRTwvK2ZBfaBI2Acw
Islam has we know is not the original religion of the Prophet Muhammed. He was a "believer" in Israel's God but used the "Arabic" and called him Allah. This same God made a covenant with the children of Israel and every prophet he sent has been to the "children of Israel" with one exception which is Jonah. The term "muslim" was first used about 60 years after the death of the Prophet Muhammed since the earlier form of "believer" was used. Muhammed whom described himself as more worthy than the Jews in the "hadith" adopted the minor fast day of 10th of Muhurram, a Jewish fast. This Jewish fast day is the starting point of the Islamic calendar. Muhammed also attended "mosque" during the Sabbath (Source: Shia tradition) and adopted many laws which are common with the Torah of the Jews.
The religion is in need of "reform". Tommy Robinson's belief of attacking the religion through various street campaigns does not win the hearts and minds of the "muslims" nor the British elite of the country. The Prophet Muhammed stated that the "ink of the scholar is mightier than the blood of the martyr". This means exposing the true Islam is mightier than fist fights on the street.
The shocking aspect of the Tommy Robinson's affair was that the police ignored his 200 death threats. But are often quick to lock people up for snide remarks on "twitter" or "insensitive" or "provocative" remarks. Since when is the occasional insensitive remark even an offence according to the law. Alas the "masons" in power have been busy like bees in a hive, rewriting our laws to attack very freedoms many people enjoy. It is all about thought control these days. Tyranny is here and as many people know they use "electronic" weaponry against people by putting into people's minds all sorts of "thoughts" often contrary to the very spirit of the laws they are creating. Contradictory is not the word for the world we live in, it just isn't strong enough.
Tommy Robinson probably had enough of the threats, the lack of police support, and the establishment who are involved in their own conspiracies against the people of the nation. The Bible and Holy Quran talk about worldwide global conspiracies. Studying the "Jewish" literature it is clear they envision a worldwide "Islamic" terror network in every nation terrorising the existence of all nations. Islam will rule the world is the belief of one Orthodox Rabbi. The Zohar is also used by Judaism to prophesy of a worldwide Islamic caliphate destroying civilisation. God help us all if these astounding prophecies end up reality because we would end up no doubt with a very intolerant version.
Tommy Robinson Death Threats
Any Muslim or Imam which preaches against the Holy Sabbath is outside of true Islam. They are in a state of apostasy according to the Quran and will face Judgement. The Sabbath is a legally binding law enjoined on all people and animals created by God. If animals are to rest how much more the people of the world?
As the video reveals there are Islamic sects or families who observe the Biblical Sabbath. The Prophet Muhammed obeyed the Jewish fast of 10 Tevet (known as 10 Muharrum). His uncle could understand "Hebrew".

Hamas terrorists kill innocent Palestinian in Gaza (Rare Video) (Must See)
Hamas terrorists kill innocent Palestinian|About Hamas part2
Here, is an interesting video going through the Jewish law on prostration.
Talmudic Basis for Jewish Prostration
David Ward claimed he would join "hamas" and lob missiles at the Israelis if he was living in the besieged city in Palestine. Of course has you can imagine to have such an outburst caused a stir with the Israeli lobby. Demands to have him removed are called but at the time of writing he continues.
The British Board of Deputies have demanded his removal for these comments.
Was he right or wrong in his comments?
He was saying if he was living in "gaza" being faced with a continual barrage of missiles, this would upset him so much he would want to lob a few back.
This would make it self defence according to the Torah (eye for eye) which ironically still applies and was written into the Holy Quran known as the "Law of Equality". Look it up. Do we really think after 6,000 years of human blood shed, that God is somehow going to miraculously intervene to save people in this current conflict? This is probably why so many rely on the "tooth for tooth or eye for eye".
But of course none of this really helps the situation. It just escalates the cycle of violence in the world. Jesus' moral teachings of "turning the other cheek" was to prevent a further escalation of problems. If only the Jews would accept Jesus' teachings on this they would probably be treating people radically different. Likewise if the Palestinians also accepted the teachings of Jesus (whom they also adore) they probably wouldn't be lobbing so many rockets at innocent civilians. Both sides pay lip service to a higher moral ideal in the world.
So was David Ward right? Probably not. Lobbing missiles at innocent civilians does not win hearts and minds and neither does it show the "high" moral ideal Jesus expects of people. But is the war in Gaza over "gas" in the area?

Suffice to say thousands of Christians have fled Mosul upon hearing this recent announcement.
There is a gruesome video circulating of Isis beheading a Christian in Syria. Not for the faint hearted. He is described as a "kaffir" or non muslim.
The argument is often made these Islamic terrorists do not represent the religion of Islam. Now, what about the Catholic crusades and mass killings of "heretics" including Jews by Inquisitions? Are they too not true Catholics? They both represent their religion and commit atrocities in its name. True believers are not organised into political movements or organised religions which are used as objects of terror against the people. We have to separate from these mass movements.

Bombshell! Proof That Malaysia Flight MH17 Was Diverted Over Ukraine War Zone!
Islam in its current form is not a religion of peace but an intolerable religion which finds it difficult to co-exist with other religions. Over 300 Muslim men from the UK have joined with ISIS and commit acts of terrorism against the Syrian people and Iraqi people.
We speak the truth here. Just look at the beheading videos, the shootings of ISIS fighters, and the torture meted out in Syria and Iraq. This is being carried out predominately by Sunni Islam.
Cut the bull. The religion is intolerable. It turns people against Islam rather than encouraging people to want to study the Holy Quran. Therefore, we speak out against the "Islam" being promoted. One convert told me that you should hear the anti-Semitism being preached in the mosque.
We support the Holy Quran, the Prophet Muhammed but not the religion which came out of it which is a corruption. Like Constantine Christianity, the Muslims couldn't wait to abandon and burn the Torah alongside their Catholic counterparts.
Tommy Robinson has left the English Defence League and is more moderate these days. Maybe he had too many death threats or the opportunity of working for the government on social cohesion is too much of a carrot.
The BBC programme has Tommy believing that Islam needs to be reformed. This brought an angry response from the listeners with one Islamic man who received death threats for attempting to instigate change. Islam is in terrible need of reform. It needs to go back to its historical Jewish and Christian origins. Those who think this is insane. Tell me where do you think the Prophet Muhammed received his information and to whom? Angel Gabriel, the angel of the Twelve Tribes of Israel (not Ishmael). And over 23 Prophets come from the Old and New Testament that are mentioned in the Holy Quran. At least one third of the Holy Quran mentions tales from the Old and New Testament with some Gnostic gospels also mentioned. Seriously, what is your answer to this?
Speechless aren't you?
Quitting the English Defence League: When Tommy Met Mo
There are some Christians out there which support Syria although in the minority. This blog supports Syria and the Assad regime because we know the wars are over the gas pipelines. Syria was building one with Iran which would probably replace the Rothschild franchise. The Red Shields must be seeing Red. The Rothschild family do not represent Judaism. They are a terrorist network of individuals whom seek to control all nations including our own--Great Britain. We used to be great until their stench enter our land. Syria we support you.

They are certainly in a minority. Israel has a right to exist even if at times we take swipes at the government currently in power. Nobody wants the land to fall away into hostile "Islamic" control that will not tolerate Christianity or Judaism or any other sect.
We have long advanced the opinions that Islam is in crisis. It has now been turned into a terrorist religion void of any real humanity with moderate Muslims failing to speak out against the violence and blood shed in its name. Some of the sects are now false religions outside of the worship of God.
True religion does not murder, torture or behead victims or enemies like the terrorists of ISIS.
"The Children of Israa’eel divided into seventy-one sects and the Christians divided into seventy-two sects. And my Ummah shall divide into seventy-three sects, all of them being in the Fire except one sect."

It was authenticated by Shaykh al-Albaanee in as-Saheehah (no. 203-204, 1492) and in Saheeh Sunan Ibn Maajah (no. 3225-3227) and in Dhilaalul Jannah (no. 63-67).]
I challenge any Muslim who disagrees with me to watch the bloody videos of ISIS killing Syrians and Iraqis in killing sprees, and torturing their victims and then come back to me.
Until then we will continue to support Israel's right to exist and speak out against the brute thugs that operate under the religion of Islam.
On the surface it would appear to be a straight forward process but it is not.
Islam teaches primarily two types of ablutions. One is a minor one called "wudu"; the other a major ablution called "ghusl". Wudu is a hand, face and feet washing ceremony. Whereas ghusl is a ritual bath where the whole body is immersed in water, we know this in Judaism as the "mikveh".
The rules for ritual purity come from the following Surah:
Surah 5:6, "O you who have believed, when you rise to [perform] prayer, wash your faces and your forearms to the elbows and wipe over your heads and wash your feet to the ankles. And if you are in a state of janabah, then purify yourselves. But if you are ill or on a journey or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself or you have contacted women and do not find water, then seek clean earth and wipe over your faces and hands with it. Allah does not intend to make difficulty for you, but He intends to purify you and complete His favor upon you that you may be grateful."
On ghusl, the ritual bath or mikveh:
Ghusl is a major ablution as opposed to wudu which is a minor ablution. In Islamic laws, ghusl is considered an act of worship; it is an act of purifying oneself from the ritual impurity (najasat) caused by sexual intercourse, discharge of semen or blood, and by touching the dead body. The ritual bath given to a dead Muslim before burial is also known as ghusl.Islam teaches before prayer each person must perform Wudu (the ritual washing of hands, face/head, elbows and ankles) to gain purity before prayer or entering into the place of worship. With the ritual bath taken place only when there is a discharge of blood, semen or contact with a dead body.
However ritual impurity comes from any type of discharge from a person. Here, the Quran clearly states, the ritual bath would be required for:
We can see with the exception of "travel" that discharges take place during times of illness where bugs and bacteria come out of the individual. Discharges are made during going to the toilet and emissions of semen from sexual intercourse rending the person unclean in a state of impurity. Most of these rules come from Judaism and are not new concepts to people who study religion.
This is the Hebrew term for seminal discharge which renders a person unclean. From Wikipedia:
Keri (קרי) is a Hebrew term which literally means "happenstance", "frivolity" or "contrariness" and has come to mean "seminal emission".... The term is generally used in Jewish law to refer specifically to the regulations and rituals concerning the emission of semen, whether by nocturnal emission, or by sexual activity. By extension, a man is said to be a ba'al keri (בעל קרי)("one who has had a seminal emission") after he has ejaculated without yet completing the associated ritual cleansing requirements.
The biblical regulations of the Priestly Code specify that a man who had experienced an emission of semen would become ritually impure, until the evening came and the man had washed himself in water; (Leviticus 15:16) any clothes or bits of skin which the semen came into contact with would also become ritually impure, until they had been washed in water and the evening had come. (Leviticus 15:17) The code adds that if the emission of semen occurred during sexual intercourse with a woman, then the woman would also become ritually impure, until the evening had come and she had washed herself in water. (Leviticus 15:18)
The Talmud relates that Ezra's decree forbidding a ba'al keri from studying Torah no longer applies nowadays. Some dispute exists amongst the Rishonim as to whether or not this applies to prayer as well. Rav Hai Gaon (brought in the commentary of Yonah Gerondi on Berakhot) and Chananel ben Chushiel (brought in Tosafot Hullin 122b) say that a ba'al keri, while he may study Torah, may not pray until he goes to a mikveh. Maimonides (Hilkhot Kriat Shma 4:8) says that the decree was cancelled entirely and a ba'al keri may even say Kriat Shma. Maimonides goes on to say, however, that the minhag in Shinaar and Spain is that before prayer a ba'al keri should wash himself entirely with water (Hilkhot Tefillah 4:6). The consensus is that it is praiseworthy for a ba'al keri to immerse himself in the mikveh before praying, Kriat Shma, saying Berakhot etc.
Here we see that seminal discharges in Judaism meant immersion into the "mikveh". Similarly, Islam teaches seminal discharges require immersion into a ritual bath called the ghusl. However, Islam fails to recognise the "ghusl" has the mikveh. This would mean the individual washes themselves after a seminal discharge with soap and water then dips naked into a "mikveh" where he is purified.
Toilet Renders Impurity
In Surah 5:6, persons engaging in sexual intercourse would be required to undergo a ritual bath so too must people going to the toilet, the ill, and the traveller. This is where Islam disagrees with the Quranic text.
Most people of the world consider urine and stool as unclean, but Islam has gone one step further in declaring them to be ritually unclean. For example, in the matters of worship a Muslim who has passed urine or emptied his bowels cannot pray even after cleaning his body from urine and stool-he must also do wudu, a minor ablution. Instead of the ritual bath persons who have gone to the toilet are only required to wash their private parts. This is called istinja. The Prophet Muhammed used water to wash his private parts after going to the toilet. This is where the tradition comes from in Islam.
Whenever the Prophet went to answer the call of nature, I used to bring water with which he used to clean his private parts. (Bukhari, Book of Ablution)
"Wudu" - the ritual washings of head, hands, and feet is then done before prayer time. But the Quranic text implies these people must also be required to have a ritual bath. The issue is that any discharge from the body renders the person unclean and in a state of "impurity". This is something which is known in Judaism but lost by Islamic scholars. This impurity requires a ghusl" (mikveh) not a "wudu". The wudu ritual washings do not necessarily pour water over the places of the body where there has been a discharge rendering the individual in a state of impurity. God in His wisdom knew these ritual purity laws would be impossible to keep a lot of the time so allowed the individual to place their hands in the dust of the earth to purify the impurity.
Ezra Hasofer decreed that men who are in state of impurity are prohibited from learning Torah unless they first purify themselves. A later Beis Din extended the decree to prohibit davening as well without prior purification. This decree is called “Takanas Ezra.” The act of immersing oneself in keeping with this Takana is called Tevilas Ezra.
At a later date, the Chachamim abolished the Takana completely, on the basis of the following two things: First of all, the Takana had never been accepted by the general public, and secondly, it caused Bittul Torah, for people would not learn Torah if they had not gone to the mikvah. There is a dispute among Rishonim which part, or perhaps all, of the Takanah was abolished.
The Rambam writes in Hilchos Tefilla “It is widespread custom in Shinar and Spain that a ba’al keri does not pray until he has washed his whole body in water,[based on the command]: "Prepare to meet your G-d, Israel" (Amos 4:12).
Likewise, the Rosh writes that when one davens in a state of impurity, his Tefilos will not be accepted.
The article also states the importance of having a mikveh before "davening" which is prayer. Some of the Jews would undergo the mikveh after a seminal discharge and before studying the Torah. Islam likewise teaches immersion into the ritual bath "ghusl" on seminal discharges.
Ghusl is a ritual bath; it involves washing of the whole body. There are two methods of performing ghusl. One is known as ghusl tartibi, and the other is known as ghusl irtimasi.Judaism on Urine
1. Ghusl Tartibi:
“Ghusl tartibi” means an ordinal bath, performed in three stages.
After washing away the najasat (e.g., semen or blood) from the body and after niyyat, the body has to be washed in three stages: First, head down to the neck; then the right side of the body from the shoulder down to the foot; and lastly, the left side of the body.
Each part should be washed thoroughly in such a way that the water reaches the skin. Special care should be taken while washing the head; the hair should be combed (e.g., with your fingers) so that water reached the hair roots. While washing the right side of the body, some part of the left side must be washed too, and also, while washing the left side of the body, some part of the right side must be washed.
2. Ghusl Irtimasi:
“Ghusl irtimasi” means a bath involving immersion of the whole body in the water. It is needless to say that such a ghusl can only be done in a body of water, e.g., a pool, river, lake or sea.
After washing away the semen or blood from the body and after niyyat, the whole body should be completely immersed in the water all at once, not gradually. One has to make sure that the water reaches all parts of the body, including hair and the skin under it.
However, ghusl tartibi is preferred to ghusl irtimasi.
Passing urine renders the person unclean on the same level as emitting semen, blood or menstruation which require water immersion in a mikveh to become clean. We can learn this from writings of Judaism:
Certain ritually impure things are Fathers of Impurity. Impurity is transferred from any Father of Impurity in various ways, including by contact with a person, garment or useful object susceptible to impurity. Fathers of Impurity include: a person or a useful object that has been made impure by a corpse; a person, garment or house with leprosy; a man or woman with irregular genital flows; a menstruating woman; a woman following childbirth; a couch, seat, or saddle in which any of these last three have sat; flesh of a dead animal (one not properly ritually slaughtered); a creeping thing; the semen of a Jew; and idols, their accessories, and wine libations and offerings made to them. Impurity is also transferred to, and by, liquids such as urine and spittle that come from a person who transfers impurity to others, including a person who has consumed impure food or liquid.
On a higher plane is the man who had intercourse with a Menstruant, for he conveys to that on which he lies the same uncleanness as [a Zab conveys] to that which lies above him. On a higher plane than these are the issue of a Zab, his spittle, his semen and his urine, and the blood of a Menstruant, for they convey uncleanness both by contact and by carriage. On a higher plane than these is an object on which one can ride, for it conveys uncleanness even when it lies under a heavy stone. On a higher plane than the object on which one can ride is that on which one can lie, for in the latter case uncleanness is conveyed by contact as by carriage. On a higher plane than the object on which one can lie is the Zab, for a Zab conveys uncleanness to the object on which he lies while the object on which he lies cannot convey the same uncleanness to that upon which it lies.
These are the persons that had a seminal issue who require Immersion: if he noticed that his urine issued in drops or was muddy, at the beginning he is clean; in the middle and at the end, he is unclean; from the beginning to the end, he is clean. If it was white and viscous, he is unclean. R. Jose [T4] says: what is white counts like what is muddy.
If a Gentile woman discharged semen from an Israelite, it is unclean. If an Israelite woman discharged semen from a Gentile, it is clean. If a woman had intercourse and then went down and immersed herself but did not sweep out the house, it is as though she had not immersed herself. If a man who had a seminal issue immersed himself but did not first pass urine, he again becomes unclean when he passes urine. R. Jose [T4] says: if he was sick or old he is unclean, but if he was young and healthy he remains clean.
The blood of an idolatress and the clean blood of a leprous woman, Beth Shammai [CE1] declare clean and Beth Hillel [CE1] hold that it is like her spittle or her urine, the blood of a woman after childbirth who did not undergo ritual Immersion, Beth Shammai [CE1] ruled, is like her spittle or her urine, but Beth Hillel [CE1] ruled: it conveys uncleanness both when wet and when dry, they agree, however, that if she gave birth while in zibah, it conveys uncleanness both when wet and when dry.
The following cause uncleanness and also susceptibility [to uncleanness]; the issue of a person who has a running issue, his spittle, his semen and his urine, a quarter-log from a corpse, and the blood of a Menstruant woman. R. Eliezer [T2 or T5] says: semen does not cause susceptibility. R. Eleazar [T4 in M or PA3] b. `Azariah says: the blood of a Menstruant woman does not cause susceptibility. R. Simeon [T4] says: the blood of a corpse does not cause susceptibility, and if it fell on a gourd, it should be scraped off, and it remains clean.
Based on these opinions it would seem that passing urine or going to the toilet would also require a ritual bath or "ghusl" or mikveh before Torah study or Quranic studies. But how practical this type of ritual purity is remains to be seen. Judaism had a tradition of ritual immersion before prayer and studying Torah and the High Priest had to immerse in a mikveh before entering the Temple. Likewise this may be transferred into places of worship where "worship" and prayer will be taking place.
Islam is restoring customs the Jews have abandoned. This is ritual washings before every prayer. And mikvehs after seminal discharges for men, sexual intercourse for men and women. In the process making it easier by allowing "dirt" to be used as a means of purification in the absence of water.
Judaism does not allow animal experiments but this doesn't stop them.
And what does God think of this?

that deeds are reached up to heaven on these days and are the days of forgiveness
On Judaism, we read in Wikipedia:
Mondays and Thursdays are considered especially auspicious days for fasting. Traditionally, one also fasted upon awakening from an unexpected bad dream although this tradition is rarely kept nowadays.
The Polish Jews are accustomed to fast on the twentieth of Siwan on account of the atrocities committed on that day in 1648 by the Cossacks. Some pious Jews also fast every Monday and Thursday in commemoration of the destruction of the Temple, of the burning of the Torah, and of the desecration of God's name (comp. Luke xviii. 12).
It was customary to hold public fast days on Mondays and Thursdays (Tosef. to Ta'an. 2:4); individuals, however, especially after the destruction of the Temple, took upon themselves to fast every Monday and Thursday (Ta'an. 12a).
The first Monday and Thursday, and the following Monday after Passover and Sukkot (Tur and Sh. Ar., OḤ, 492). This fast was interpreted as an atonement for possible sins committed while in a state of drunkenness and gluttony during the holidays (see Tos. to Kid. 81a S.V. Sekava).
Reading of Torah on Mondays and Thursdays:
At first glance, this would seem to contradict the tradition3 that Ezra the Scribe and the Men of the Great Assembly introduced the practice of reading the Torah on Mondays and Thursdays in the 4th century BCE.... 2. The Tosafot (ad loc.) add that the choice of Monday and Thursday had additional significance to Moses since when he received the second set of Tablets he ascended Mount Sinai on the last Monday in Av and came down on Thursday, 10 Tishrei.
The Shulchan Aruch suggests that Monday and Thursday were picked to be the two days of fasting because these are Yemei Ratzon (days of grace). It points out that Moses went up a second time to Mount Sinai to receive the Torah on a Thursday and came down on a Monday.
Now let's see what Islam says:
It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was keen to fast on Mondays and Thursdays. Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 745; al-Nasaa’i, 2361; Ibn Maajah, 1739; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb, 1044.
It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Deeds are shown (to Allaah) on Mondays and Thursdays, and I like my deeds to be shown when I am fasting.” Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 747; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb, 1041.
There is no doubt that fasting on Mondays and Thursdays is superior and that no other days could stand in their position, for the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa salam, favored them over other days by fasting on them. In justifying his fasting on them very often, he informed us that a person’s deeds are shown to Allaah The Almighty on these days, according to the narration by At-Tirmithi on the authority of Abu Qataadah may Allaah be pleased with him; and An-Nasaa'i on the authority of Usaamah.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 2055 Narrated by Aisha
Allah's Messenger (saws) used to fast on Mondays and Thursdays.
Related by Tirmidhi and Nasa'i.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 1261 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
The Prophet (saws) said: ‘A man's deeds are presented (to Allah The Most Exalted) on Mondays and Thursdays and I prefer that I should be observing fast when my deeds are presented.’
Hadrat Abu Qatadah (r.a.) reported: ‘The Messenger of Allah (saws) was asked about fasting on Mondays. He (saws) said, "That is the day on which I was born and the day on which I received Revelation.``
Islam borrowed the custom of fasting on Mondays and Thursdays from the children of Israel because they are the days of Grace, Torah and forgiveness. These days mankind's deeds reach up to heaven and are judged. The Prophet Muhammed was born on a Monday and the final revelation came down on a Monday making it a favourable day for "fasting".
From the publication PORK:
QUESTION: I, being a'Christian, have no difficulty in eating pork. I often wonder why Muslim brethren have not been allowed to enjoy this tasty food, as we Christians do?
ANSWER: This question is somewhat astonishing because, according to the Scriptures, even the Christians are not allowed to eat pork.
QUESTION: How can you say this?
ANSWER: Well, let us see what the Bible says about pork: "And the swine,... . he is unclean to you. Of the flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you." (Leviticus, 11:7-8). The same command is repeated in Deuteronomy, 14:8. Rev. W. K. Lawther Clarke says in his Concise Bible Commentary (pub. S.P.C.K., 1952) commenting upon these passages: "The laws were inculcated and obeyed because they embodied God's will" (p.371). Dr. E. A. Widmer quotes in his article Pork, Man and Disease (Good Health, vol.69, no. 1):- "Pork although one of the most common articles of diet, is one of the most injurious. God did not prohibit the Hebrews from eating swines' flesh merely to show His authority, but because it was not a proper article of food for man."
QUESTION: Thank you very much. But I have just observed that all these quotations are from the Old Testament. They are binding upon the Jews. But we, the Christians, would like to know what was the teaching of Jesus Christ on this subject.
ANSWER: Well, I was coming to that point. You see, whatever the teaching of Old Testament, the same was the teaching of Jesus Christ. He says in clear words that the laws of the Old Testament were to be obeyed without any change: "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men, so he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven." (Mat., 5:17-19).
QUESTION: I remember reading this saying of the Gospel several times. Sometimes I wondered why Christ stressed this point in so many words?
ANSWER: It was because he knew that after his ascension some of his followers would denounce the Law. Jesus Christ himself obeyed the Law faithfully. It was only after his departure from this world that St. Paul, a forceful orator, and a member of "elite" circle of the society, who took to heart the Greek 'advanced' civilization (as many people now-a-days take pride in being 'Westernized') prevailed upon the illiterate and simple-minded Christians to abandon the Law. The fact that he himself had never met Jesus Christ, and those who opposed him were constant companions of Christ, is most revealing. Jesus Christ corrected Pharisees' misinterpretation of the Law. For example, his disciples in their hunger plucked the ears of corn on sabbath day. When the Pharisees objected, Jesus Christ replied, "The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath." (Mk., 2:27). But he never said anything against the Law, including the dietary laws. St. Paul on the other hand denounced the Law, saying that "the Law worketh wrath; for where no law is, there no transgression." (Rom., 4:15)
QUESTION: This logic seems to me very convincing.
ANSWER: Well, if you are really convinced of this reasoning, then you should see to it that all legislatures are abolished, and all courts are closed. Thus there would be no criminal, because there would be no law to transgress!
...QUESTION: I must admit that you have got a very strong point here. I now agree that according to the Original Christianity, pork was and will remain forbidden. But, frankly speaking, 1 do not find anything wrong with pork.
ANSWER: I hope that you are not one of those who think that aping the Western culture is the proof of enlightenment. In directing the dietary principles of the children of Israel and, thereafter of the Muslims, God meant these rules to be a source of continued benefit to mankind. The transfer of certain disease, as modern medical research has substantiated, would be adequate justification for this ancient law.
Shia Muslims are dying everyday by armed thugs posing as Sunni Muslims.
Muslims in the UK are joining and sponsoring terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq whilst they protest the terrorism of Israel against the Palestinians.
Is it me? Or is there something wrong with what is happening here?
We can all agree that Israel has committed terrible crimes by bombing innocent civilians but let us also spare a thought to the victims of ISIS.
Islamic terror is also not acceptable. Murder is murder. Below is an example of the Shia genocide happening around the globe.
Notorious Yazidi takfiri nasbi terrorists of outlawed Sipah-e-Sahaba shot martyred a renowned
Shia scholar and his father when they were goiShia scholar and father martyred in Yazidi takfiri terrorist attack in Abbotabad ng to offer Friday prayers in Abbotabad in Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa Province. Allama Waseem Shirazi and his father had gone to offer Friday prayer at the local Jamey Masjid in Hassan Town. When they were on way, notorious Yazidi takfiri nasbi terrorists opened fire upon them. They were seriously injured and rushed to hospital where they embraced martyrdom. Despite Operation Zarb-e-Azb in North Waziristan, Yazidi takfiri nasbi affiliates of banned Taliban, continued genocide against Shiites unabated. They have martyred 2 Shia Muslims in Karachi during holy month of Ramazan and now they ambushed another two in Abbotabad, Shiite News Correspondent cited. Shia parties and leaders have condemned the targeted murders of Shia scholar and his father. They told the Shiite News that military should also liquidate the terrorists of banned Sipah-e-Sahaba, ASWJ and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and whatever names the infamous takfiris adopt against Muslims.Source: http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/1.604563
Have a look for yourself to see how these Sunni Muslims, calling themselves ISIS, behave gunning down innocent people on the street. And they have the gall to bemoan Israel? And this is religion in action.

18+ WARNING GRAPHIC: ISIS Death Squads Killing Without Mercy on Iraq Roads
Writes Rabbi Gershom:
What I know for sure is that ever since 9/11, if I travel outside my local area where I am a familiar sight, I find myself being followed by security people in stores, stared at by strangers on the street, or trailed through small towns by police cars. I have also been pulled over by cops for things like a burned out tail light a whole lot more often than ever happened before 9/11. I haven't had any occasion to fly lately, but I have no doubt that I'd be seen as suspicious. Would I be kicked off the flight -- or worse -- because some passenger "felt uncomfortable" with me on board?Maybe it is the "hoody" he keeps wearing?
Despite his known Church of England associations he was educated in Roman Catholic revivalist Church of England. You couldn't make these things up. He went to Magdelen College in Oxford and The Royal College of St. Peter in Westminster which originally was Roman Catholic then taken over by the Church of England. But it still maintains some of its Roman Catholic traditions.
About Magdelen College:
On Sundays, a Sung Eucharist is offered in the morning at 11am and Compline (Night Prayer) and Benediction is sung congregationally to plainsong at 9pm. Mass is also sung on major holy days.
About Westminster School:
The school was expressly exempted by the Act of Uniformity to allow it to continue saying Latin prayers despite the Reformation. Every Wednesday there is an assembly Up School known as Latin Prayers, which opens with the Headmaster leading all members of the school in chanting prayers in Latin, followed by notices in English. The School's unique pronunciation of formal Latin is known as 'Westminster Latin', and descends from medieval English scholastic pronunciation: Queen Elizabeth I, who spoke fluent Latin, commanded that Latin was not to be said "in the monkish fashion", a significant warning upon loyalties between Church and State.
What is Dominic Grieve? Church of England or Roman Catholic? Or a Roman Catholic pretending to be Church of England? His name, Dominic is a Roman Catholic name. Maybe he is Jesuit in high places.
Dominic is a name common among Roman Catholics and other Latin-Roman based cultures. Originally from the late Roman-Italic name "Dominicus" its translation means "Of Our Lord", "Lordly", "Belonging to God" or "of the Master".
Here is a bit about him from Christian Conservatives (an oxymoron).
The Rt. Hon. Dominic Grieve QC MP
Dominic Grieve was first elected as MP for Beaconsfield in 1997. He had previously fought the seat of Lambeth Norwood in 1997 and was a Councillor in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham from 1982–1986. Dominic was educated at Westminster school and Magdalen College Oxford where he took a degree in Modern History. He was called to the Bar in 1980 and practiced as a Barrister before entering Parliament. Since his election in 1997 Dominic has played a key role in the formulation of Home Affairs and Justice policies. He spearheaded the Party’s efforts on the erosion of Civil Liberties and, as Shadow Secretary of State for Justice, led work on a possible Bill of Rights to replace the Human Rights Act. He was at the forefront of Labour’s first defeat in the House of Commons over 90 day detention without charge. In May 2010 Dominic was appointed Attorney General. In his spare time Dominic is a deputy Church warden and enjoys mountain climbing, ski-ing, travel, fell-walking, scuba diving, architecture and art. He is married to Caroline who is a Barrister and they have two teenage boys: James and Hugo.
His voting record is available at http://www.publicwhip.org.uk/mp.php?mpn=Dominic_Grieve.
For an attorney General his support of human rights is appallingly low but often contradictory:
41% Homosexuality - Equal rights
67% Human Rights and Equality
88% Same Sex Marriage - for
22% Stronger Military Covenant
99% Iraq 2003 - For the invasion
92% Iraq Investigation - Necessary
42% Right to strike
100% The UK should not ratify the Lisbon Treaty
As we see he can hardly be called as a Champion of Human Rights by his own voting record. He would reduce our rights to go on strike, vote in favour of war but not commit himself to supporting the "troops" and flip flops on issues. His score of a below average of 67% in favour of human rights is not what we would expect to find for an Attorney General. At least 80% or above.
Since when do Christians vote for war?
Most of this is the stuff of Hollywood fantasy movies but it is going on today behind closed doors. Although it is very difficult to get to know all the goings on within the occult world we know they are behind "mind reading" and "mind control" technology being brought in by the Temple of Set.
Another aspect they are involved in is radionics.
One occultist spills the beans on the blog:

It seems another version of the Grimorium Verum was published by I.G.O.S. (Palm Springs: 1996), which offers the text in both French and English. I.G.O.S. is the International Guild of Occult Sciences, a college and research society located in Palm Springs, CA. They are said to have a huge catalog, with hundreds of books, products, and reports. The people that run IGOS also run the International Guild of Advanced Sciences (IGAS), an organization that specializes in the field of radionics, psionics, etc. It seems that I.G.O.S. also published an Eng. translation of Cauzons La Magie et la Sorcerie en France in 1994.
The domain http://www.igos.org is currently for sale, and on the site of IGAS they seem to sell mysterious Chi Generators..
I found the reference to this 1996 ed. GV right here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/13154952/The-Study-of-Solomonic-Magic-in-English. (p.8)
For those unfamiliar to radionics here is what Wikipedia says about it:
Radionics is the idea that disease can be diagnosed and treated with a kind of energy similar to radio waves. The concept behind radionics originated in the early 1900s with Albert Abrams (1864–1924), who became a millionaire by leasing radionic machines which he designed himself. Radionics contradicts some principles of physics and biology and so is commonly considered pseudoscience. The United States Food and Drug Administration does not recognize any legitimate medical uses for such devices.
"Grimoires" spills the beans on this information on the blog writing about Grimorium Verum. This black magic work is known to be translated by a Jesuit. A copy of this work can be read here. To learn more about "ceremonial" magic, Arthur Waite, does a scathing report in his book: THE BOOK OF CEREMONIAL MAGIC.
The elite know that radio waves can heal people but this technology is kept away from the people in favour of the drug pushing cartel which has cornered the market in the Western world.
As we learn in the Bible and the following quotation, the majority are always wrong:
"Abdullah bin Amar (RA) relates that the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said : Surely things will happen to my people as happened earlier to Israelites, they will resemble each other like one shoe in a pair resembles the other to the extent that if anyone among the Israelites has openly committed adultery to his mother there will be some who will do this in my Ummah as well, verily the Israelites were divided into 72 sections but my people will be divided into 73 sections, all of them will be in the fire except one." The companions asked, 'Who are they O Messenger of Allah,' Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "They are those who will be like me and my companions."
The Messenger (sallallaah 'alayhe wa sallam) said,
"The Jews split into 71 sects, and the Christians split into 72 sects. My nation is going to split into 73 sects, and all of them will be in the Hellfire except one."
It was said, "Who are they (that one Saved Sect), O Messenger of Allaah?" He replied,
"They those who are upon what I and my Companions are upon."

Judaism - Some say Sunrise, Others Dawn
Judaism, the mother of Christianity and Islam, begins minor fasts from sunrise or dawn to the appearance of three stars in sky or dark, with the exception of the Day of Atonement and 9th of Ab.
According to the Jewish Encyclopedia:
All Jewish fasts begin at sunrise and end with the appearance of the first stars of the evening, except those of the Day of Atonement and the Ninth of Ab, which last "from even till even."
Some Jews suggest minor fast days begin at sunrise (see Fast Days a Survival). Chabad, Orthodox Judaism believes minor fasts begin at dawn.
From Fast Days:
Fasting is pretty simple. If you are a healthy man or woman over the age of bar or bat mitzvah, just abstain from food and drink from dawn until dark.
Another Jewish source, 'Major' and 'Minor' Jewish Fast Days adds:
On 'minor' fast days, the fast lasts from sunrise to nightfall - how long this is will depend on the season of the year (summer days are longer than winter days).
There are five minor fasts on the Jewish calendar. With one exception, these fasts were instituted by the Sages to commemorate some national tragedy. The minor fasts (that is, all fasts except Yom Kippur and Tisha b'Av) last from dawn (first light) to nightfall (full dark), and one is permitted to eat breakfast if one arises before dawn for the purpose of doing so (but you must finish eating before first light). There is a great deal of leniency in the minor fasts for people who have medical conditions or other difficulties fasting. The date of the fast is moved to Sunday if the specified date falls on Shabbat.
There can be over one and half hours difference between sunrise and dawn. And there are different types of dawn.
Dawn or civil dawn is the time at which the sun is 6 degrees below the horizon in the morning. Civil dawn is defined as that time at which there is enough light for objects to be distinguishable and that outdoor activities can commence.
Nautical dawn is the time at which the sun is 12 degrees below the horizon in the morning. Nautical dawn is defined as that time at which there is just enough sunlight for objects to be distinguishable.
Astronomical dawn is the time at which the sun is 18 degrees below the horizon in the morning. Astronomical dawn is that point in time at which the sun starts lightening the sky. Prior to this time, the sky is completely dark.
Dawn should not be confused with sunrise, which is the moment when the leading edge of the sun itself appears above the horizon.
During Ramadan a pre dawn meal is eating before dawn called the Suhoor. It is generally accepted fasting begins after the meal but before dawn or the Fajr prayer. Debates rage as to when the true dawn occurs.
Here is an article reprinted explaining the situation below.
Distinguishing the True Dawn from the False Dawn
Written by Sheikh Dr. Muḥammed Taqi’l-Dīn al-Hilāli al-Maghribi, raḥimahullāh
Translated by Sheikh Dr Kehlan al-Jubury
With the name of Allāh, The Compassionate, The Merciful
All praise be to Allāh, the one who made happiness in this life and in the Hereafter, specifically for those who follow His straight path, clinging to His book and the Sunnah of his honourable Prophet. May Allāh send salutations upon him, his family, his companions and those who follow him. O Allāh, Lord of the Worlds, make us among them as well!
The most desperate slave in need of the mercy of the Greatest and Ever High, Mūhammed Taqi’l-Dīn, the son of ‘Abd’l-Qādir al-Hilāli says:
I spent my youth and the time after, including some of my old age, in the East and when I returned to Morocco because of the trouble that took place in Iraq in the year 1379 AH (1958), I discovered after a lot of research, checking and repeated observations from those who have good eyesight (and I was with them at that time and able to see the dawn without hardship in those days) that the Moroccan timing for the Fajr Adhān did not agree with the correct Islamic timing. That is because the Mu’adhdhin calls to prayer before the true Islamic dawn. His call at that time does not make Fajr prayer permissible and also does not prohibit eating for the fasting person.
I began giving fatwa according to this and still act upon it to this day. In Ramaḍān from this year 1394 AH (1974), some of our brothers fell into confusion. The reason for this was because a brother – who is a preacher – visited Morocco in Ramaḍān. Some people from those who accompanied him claimed that he said the Islamic dawn was in agreement with the Moroccan dawn timing; but a trustworthy brother known to me told me that the preacher actually found that the difference between the Islamic dawn that can be seen with the eyes and the Moroccan time (observed outside the city, in an open field) was about 13 or 15 minutes (the doubt is from the brother I know).
So this narration is clearly contradictory. If what they said is correct – that the Islamic dawn and the Moroccan dawn are in agreement – then this is a mistake that can be identified by everyone who knows the Islamic dawn and he has eyes that he can see with (it is obvious that in countries where there are a lot of clouds and fog, that the people do not know the dawn, which also includes those who live in the desert but are not keen in such matters).
If one wants to know the Islamic dawn, then he must do two things:
Firstly he must study the Prophet’s (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) statements which differentiate between the false dawn and the true dawn, and then the statements of his companions, the second generation and the great Imams.
Secondly, he has to be from those people who are used to seeing the dawn, such as a Mu’adhdhin or a person who travels a lot in the desert.
To explain the first part, I am writing this book and calling it the explanation of the true dawn and distinguishing it from the false dawn through evidences.
To begin, we must explain what Allāh Almighty said in Sūrat’l-Baqarah, verse 187:
وَكُلُواْ وَاشْرَبُواْ حَتَّى يَتَبَيَّنَ لَكُمُ الْخَيْطُ الأَبْيَضُ مِنَ الْخَيْطِ الأَسْوَدِ مِنَ الْفَجْرِ
“Eat and drink until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct from the black.”
Ibn Kathīr explained this āyah using different statements of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam):
The first Ḥadīth has been narrated in the two authentic books (Bukhāri and Muslim) from the narration of al-Qāsim from ‘Ā’ishah that the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Let the Adhān of Bilāl not prevent you from your Suḥūr (pre-dawn meal) because he calls it in the night, so eat and drink until you hear the Adhān of Ibn Umm Maktūm because he doesn’t call the Adhān until the Fajr starts.” This is the narration of Bukhāri.
We understand from this narration and other narrations with similar meanings that the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) used to have two people giving the Adhān during Ramaḍān: one of them who could see, which was Bilāl, and the other was a blind man known as Ibn Umm Maktūm. The Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) had appointed the Mu’adhdhin who could see to alert the people that the dawn was close and it used to be done at night, i.e. before the start of the Fajr, whereas he appointed the blind Mu’adhdhin to call for Fajr after the Fajr began. So what was the intention of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam)?
If we think about this with deficient minds it would seem apparent to us that the Mu’adhdhin that can see (i.e. Bilāl) should do the last Adhān. He has more right to do so than the blind Mu’adhdhin, because he can see the beginning of dawn with his eyes and call the Adhān on time in order that the people will stop eating and drinking from the beginning of Fajr. The blind Mu’adhdhin should be the one who calls the people during the night so that they will know simply when the dawn is close by.
But the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) did the opposite; he appointed the blind man as the caller of the Adhān to prohibit food and drink and the start of the Ṣalāh. He therefore intended – without doubt – to make things easier for his nation and not harder. So whoever makes things restricted and difficult when Allāh and His Messenger have made then easy and spacious, then he is in the wrong.
The statement of Allāh, subḥānahu wa ta‘ālā: “Until it becomes distinct”, is in agreement with the statement of the Prophet because He did not say until the dawn comes out, but He said until you people can see it clearly in a way that no one has doubt about it and the explanation of that will come shortly, in shā Allāh.
In a narration by Bukhāri and Muslim, it states: “…‘so eat and drink until Ibn Umm Maktūm calls the Adhān,’ and he was blind, and would not call the Adhān until it was said to him ‘It’s morning! It’s morning!’”, so reflect upon this meaning if you are among those of understanding.
The second Ḥadīth: Ibn Kathīr said: Imām Aḥmed said: and he mentioned the chain from Qais Ibn Ṭalq from his father that the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The dawn is not that which is vertical in the sky but it is that which is red and horizontal”. This is also narrated by al-Tirmidhi. His narration states: “Eat and drink and don’t worry about the clear vertical (dawn), but eat and drink until you see the red and horizontal (dawn/light).” Then Ibn Kathīr mentioned different narrations from Ibn Jarīr (the Imām of the scholars of Tafsīr), for this Ḥadīth:
The first narration: from Samurah Ibn Jundub that he said: the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Do not be deceived by the call of Bilāl, wait until the dawn ‘explodes’.”
The second narration: from him that the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Do not be deceived by the call of Bilāl and do not be deceived by the white column of dawn, until it spreads (across the horizon).”
The third narration is narrated by Muslim in the same way it was narrated by Ibn Jarīr.
The fourth narration which was also from Ibn Jarīr: from Muḥammed Ibn Thawbān who said: The Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The dawn is of two types – one that is like the tail of the Sirḥān which does not prohibit anything, and then the one that spreads across and covers the horizon. This (latter) is the one which permits the prayer and prohibits food.” This is a good Mursal Ḥadīth.
(Muḥammed Taqi’l-Dīn said) The tail of the Sirḥān means the tail of a wolf because it lifts up and becomes vertical, similar to the false dawn.
Another narration from ‘Abd’l-Razzāq with his chain of narration mentions from Ibn ‘Abbās that he said: “There are two dawns. As for the one which is clear in the sky, that doesn’t permit or prohibit anything. But the dawn that lights the top of the mountains is the one that prohibits drinking.”
‘Aṭā’ said: “As for that dawn that is clear and its light goes vertically to the sky, it does not prohibit drinking for the person, and the Ṣalāh is not allowed based on it and the Ḥajj is not missed because of it. But if it is spread across the top of the mountains, then drinking is prohibited and the Ḥajj is missed.” These are authentic chains to Ibn ‘Abbās and ‘Aṭā’, and are similar to other narrations from more than one of the Salaf, may Allāh be merciful to them.
(Muḥammed Taqi’l-Dīn said) The meaning of ‘the Ḥajj being missed’ is that the person who is doing Ḥajj but misses standing at ‘Arafah during the 9th day of Dhu’l-Ḥijjah and he stands during the night before the true Fajr, then his Ḥajj is correct. But if he reaches ‘Arafah after the true dawn then there is no Ḥajj for him in that year.”
Some Aḥādīth from the Jāmi‘ of Imām al-Tirmidhi, with its Explanation by Our Shaykh ‘Abd’l-Raḥmān al-Mubārakpūri, raḥimahullāh:
The first Ḥadīth: al-Tirmidhi said, with his chain from Zayd Ibn Thābit who said: “We had our Suḥūr with the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and then we stood up for Ṣalāh. I asked, “How long was that?” He said, “About 50 verses.”
(Muḥammed Taqi’l-Dīn al-Hilāli said) The Salafi scholar Abu ‘Alī al-Ḥabīb Ibn ‘Alī al-‘Alawi said that he recited 50 verses in two minutes. According to this, the time between the Suḥūr of the Prophet and the Fajr prayer used to be two minutes, or could perhaps be five minutes, but those ignorant of the Sunnah consider eating five minutes before Ṣalāh time as invalidating the fast. This issue will soon increase in clarity, in shā Allāh.
Al-Tirmidhi then said: “There are other narrations in this subject from Ḥudhayfah.”
Abu ‘Īsa (al-Tirmidhi) said: “The Ḥadīth of Zayd Ibn Thābit is sound and authentic, and is acted upon by al-Shāfi‘ī, Aḥmed and Isḥāq. They recommended the delaying of the Suḥūr.”
The second Ḥadīth: al-Tirmidhi said with his chain to Ṭalq Ibn Ali, that the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Eat and drink and don’t worry about the clear and vertical, but eat and drink until you see the red horizontal.”
(Muḥammed Taqi’l-Dīn said) We understand from this Ḥadīth that the false dawn that precedes the true dawn, is pure white and it is goes from the earth to the sky and that does not prohibit eating for a fasting person, nor does it permit the Fajr prayer. The true dawn, which is horizontal across the horizon, with redness, comes before the sunrise and this is the one which prohibits food and permits the prayer.
Our Shaykh explained fifty verses as being medium, not long and not short, and the recitation is also medium, not fast and not slow. He attributed that to al-Ḥāfidh (Ibn Ḥajr).
The third Ḥadīth: our Shaykh said the Ḥadīth of Hudhayfah is narrated by al-Taḥāwī, in his book Sharḥ Ma‘ānī al-Āthār, from the narration of Zirr Ibn Ḥubaysh who said: I had my Suḥūr, and I rushed to the mosque; I passed by the house of Ḥudhayfah, and I entered it. He commanded that his she-camel be milked and a pan to be heated, and he told me, “Eat.” I replied, “I want to fast.” He said, “And I also want to fast.” We ate, and then we drank and then we came to the mosque and offered the prayer that had just started. Ḥudhayfah said, “That’s how the Messenger of Allāh did with me, or that’s how I did with the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam).” I asked, “After the dawn?” He said, “After dawn, but the sun hadn’t risen yet.” This is also narrated by al-Nasā’ī and Aḥmed.
(Muḥammed Taqi’l-Dīn said) We say to the amateur and careless people, what do you say about the fasting of Prophet Mohammed (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam)? Was it valid or invalid? If you say it was valid then it is now clear that what you previously said is wrong i.e. that it is compulsory to make up your fast if you eat after the Moroccan whistle, although it whistles at night, before the true and even the false Fajr!
Ma‘mar, Sulaymān al-A‘mash, Abu Mijlaz, and al-Ḥakam Ibn ‘Utaybah all said that it is permissible to have Suḥūr as long as the sun doesn’t rise. Their evidence was the Ḥadīth of Ḥudhayfah as mentioned by Imām al-Tirmidhi.
It is narrated from Ibn Jurayj: I said to ‘Aṭā’, “Is it disliked to drink whilst I am at home and I don’t know if the Fajr has started?” He said, “That isn’t a problem, it is a doubt.” Ibn Abi Shaybah said, “Abu Mu‘āwiyah told us from al-A‘mash from Muslim that he said, “They did not used to consider the dawn as your dawn; they used to consider the dawn which filled the houses and roads.”
Ma‘mar used to delay his Suḥūr so much that the ignorant claimed his fast was invalid. Sa‘īd Ibn Manṣūr, Ibn Abi Shaybah and Ibn al-Mundhir narrated from Abu Bakr al-Ṣiddīq, with numerous chains, that he ordered the door to be closed so that he did not see the dawn. Ibn al-Mundhir narrated with an authentic chain from ‘Alī, may Allāh be pleased with him, that he prayed Fajr, then he said, “Now is the time when the black and white threads are distinguished.”
This led Ibn al-Mundhir to say: “Some of them said that the meaning of the whiteness and the blackness of the dawn is when the whiteness spreads in the roads, streets, and houses.” He narrated with an authentic chain from Sālim Ibn ‘Ubayd al-Ashja‘ī (one of the companions of the Prophet) that Abu Bakr said to him, “Go out and see if the dawn has begun.” I looked and then came to him and told him, “It has become white and clear.” Then he said, “Go out and see if the dawn has begun.” I looked and replied, “It has become horizontal.” Then Abu Bakr said, “Now give me my drink.”
He narrated from Wakī‘ from al-A‘mash, who said, “If I was not afraid that I would become famous, I would pray Fajr then have my Suḥūr.” This is in (the books) ‘Umdat’l-Qārī and Fatḥ’l-Bārī.
Ibn Ḥazm in al-Muḥalla said: It is not obligatory, neither in Ramaḍān, nor at any other time except when the second dawn becomes clear, and as long as it doesn’t become clear then eating and drinking and intercourse is permissible. This is all in the case of the one who is in doubt that the dawn hasn’t begun, or if he is sure that it has not begun.
Then he mentioned the verse of Sūrat’l-Baqarah that we mentioned earlier. He said after that, and I quote, “Because Allāh Almighty made it permissible to have intercourse, eat and drink until we see clearly the dawn, Allāh Almighty didn’t say until the Fajr begins, and he didn’t say until you have doubts about the Fajr. So it is not permissible for anyone to say or obligate the fast unless it becomes clear to that person.”
Then Abu Muḥammed (Ibn Ḥazm) said: “It is narrated with an authentic chain, that eating after the beginning of the dawn is permissible as long as the person who intends to fast has not clearly seen it.”
Then he mentioned with a chain to Zirr Ibn Ḥubaysh that he said to Ḥudhayfah, “What time did you have your Suḥūr with the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam)? He replied, “It was during the day but the sun had not come out yet.”
He also narrated, with his chain to Abu Hurayrah that he said, “The Messenger of Allāh peace be upon him said, “If any of you hear the call to Ṣalāh and the cup in his hand, he should not put it down until he is full from it.” Then Ibn Hazm narrated with his chain from Abu Bakr al-Ṣiddīq that he said, “If two men look at the dawn and one of them has doubt, they should both eat until both of them clearly see it.”
He also narrated with his chain, to Sālim Ibn ‘Ubayd that he said, “Abu Bakr used to say to me, “Stand up between me and the dawn until I have my Suḥūr.”
Sālim Ibn ‘Ubayd is al-Ashja‘ī from the city of al-Kūfah and from the companions of the Messenger (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam), and this is one of the most authentic chains possible.
Then he (Ibn Ḥazm) narrated, with his chain from Abu Qilābah that Abu Bakr Al-Ṣiddīq used to say, “Close the door until we have our Suḥūr.” Then he narrated from Ḥammād Ibn Salamah from Abu Hurayrah, that he heard the call to the prayer whilst a cup was in his hand and he said, “I acquired it by the Lord of the Ka‘bah.”
He then narrated from Ibn Jarīr, from Ibn ‘Abbās, that he said, “Allāh permits drinking as long as you have doubts.” Then Ibn Ḥazm narrated from ‘Ikrimah that Ibn ‘Abbās said, “I have doubts by Allāh, give me something to drink.” And he drank.
Then he narrated with his chain from Makḥūl al-Azdī, that he said, “Ibn ‘Umar took a container of Zamzam and said to two men, “Has the dawn begun?” One of them said, ‘It has began,’ and the other said, ‘No it hasn’t,’ so Ibn ‘Umar drank.
He narrated with his chain, from Ḥabbān Ibn al-Ḥārith that he had his Suḥūr with ‘Alī Ibn Abi Ṭālib and both of them intended to fast, and after he finished he told the Mu’adhdhin to do the Iqāmah for the Ṣalāh.
He also narrated with his chain from Ibn Abi Shaybah from ‘Āmir Ibn Maṭar that he said, “I came to ‘Abdullāh Ibn Mas‘ūd, in his house, and he took out for us his leftover Suḥūr. We had our Suḥūr with him and the Ṣalāh started. We came out and we prayed with him.”
Also from Khubayb Ibn ‘Abd’l-Raḥmān that he said, “I heard from my aunty that she accompanied the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and that he said, “Ibn Umm Maktūm used to call to the Ṣalāh at night, so eat and drink until Bilāl calls it. And Bilāl sometimes calls at night so eat and drink until Ibn Umm Maktūm calls it.” One of them used to come down and the other used to come up, and she said, “We used to hold on to him asking him to wait until we had eaten our Suḥūr.”
It is narrated from Muḥammed Ibn ‘Alī Ibn Ḥusayn: “Eat until the Fajr become clear to you.”
It is narrated from al-Ḥasan: “Continue to eat as long as you are in doubt.”
It is narrated from Ibn Mijlaz: “The high (light in the sky) is the false dawn but the true one is clear and horizontal.”
It is narrated from Ibrahīm al-Nakhaʿī: “The horizontal and red (light) permits the prayer and forbids food.”
It is narrated from Ibn Jurayj that he said to ‘Aṭā’, “Do you dislike it if I drink whilst I am at home and I am not sure if the Fajr has begun?” He said, “There is no problem with that. This is a matter of doubt.”
On the authority of Ibn Abi Shayba who said, “Abu Mu‘āwiyah told us while we were with al-A‘mash, on the authority of Muslim, that he said, “They were not considering the Fajr as your Fajr; they consider the Fajr when it fills the houses and streets.”
It is narrated from Abu Wā’il, that he had his Suḥūr and he went to the mosque and the Ṣalāh has started.
It is narrated from Ma‘mar, that he delayed the Suḥūr so much, that the ignorant would say that his fast was invalid.
‘Alī (Ibn Hazm) said, “We have mentioned in this subject those who had their Suḥūr thinking it is night but it was day and they did not believe that they had to make it up.”
Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Alī, Ibn ‘Umar, Ibn ‘Abbās, Abu Hurayrah, Ibn Mas‘ūd, Hudhayfah, the Aunt of Khubayb, Zayd Ibn Thābit and Sa‘d Ibn Abi Waqqāṣ are eleven Companions – it is not known from any other of the Companions that they differed with them on this, may Allāh be pleased with all of them. The only thing we see is a weak narration on the authority of Makḥūl from Abu Sa‘īd al-Khudri but they never met one another (thus the narration is weak), and also on the authority of Yaḥyā al-Jazārī from Ibn Mas‘ūd but they also never met one another.
From the Tābi‘īn (the second successive generation after the Prophet) in support of the above: Muḥammed Ibn ‘Alī, Abu Majliz, Ibrāhīm, Muslim, the students of Ibn Mas‘ūd, ‘Aṭā’, al-Ḥasan al-Baṣrī, al-Ḥakam Ibn ‘Utaybah, Mujāhid, ‘Urwah Ibn al-Zubayr and Jābir Ibn Zayd.
The Sunan of Abu Dāwūd and its Explanation
Abu Dāwūd said, “On the authority of ‘Abdullāh Ibn Sawādah al-Qushayrī, from his father who said, “I heard Samurah Ibn Jundub giving a speech saying, “The Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Let the Adhān of Bilāl not prevent you from your Suḥūr, nor the whiteness of the horizon which is like this i.e. vertical, until it spreads across everywhere (yastaṭīr).”
This was also narrated by Muslim and al-Nasā’ī. Al-Khaṭṭābī said, “The meaning of yastaṭīr is when the dawn covers the horizon and its light spreads there.
The poet said:
وهان على سراة بني لؤي … حريق بالبويرة مستطير
It was easy to the sons of Lu’ay … A Mustaṭīr (spread) flame in al-Buwayrah
Abu Dāwūd also narrated from ‘Abdullāh Ibn Mas‘ūd that he said, “The Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Let not the Adhān of Bilāl prevent you from your Suḥūr because he calls the Adhān in order that those of you who are awake (and praying) can now rest and those who are asleep can wake up; and the dawn is not like this. Yaḥya al-Qaṭṭān put his hands together and he pointed with his two fingers.” This is narrated by al-Bukhāri and Muslim.
‘Adīyy Ibn Hātim narrated that when this āyah was revealed: “Eat and drink until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct from the black,” he said, “I took black and white threads, and I put them under my pillow, and I looked and I couldn’t distinguish between them. I mentioned that to the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and he laughed, and said, “Your pillow must be so wide and long then! This is referring to the night and the day.”
‘Uthmān Ibn Abi Shaybah said, “It is the darkness of the night, and whiteness of the day.” This is narrated by al-Bukhāri, Muslim, al-Tirmidhi and al-Nasā’ī.
Shaykh Shams’l-Dīn Ibn’l-Qayyim raḥimahullāh said: This hadith was criticised by Ibn al-Qaṭṭān who he said that there is some doubt in the continuity of its chain. He said that because Ibn Dāwūd said that ‘Abd’l-A‘lā Ibn al-Hammāl, said, I think, “On the authority of Ḥammād, from Muḥammed Ibn ‘Amr from Abu Hurayrah and then he mentioned the Ḥadīth.”
Al-Nasā’ī narrated from Zirr that he said: We said to Ḥudhayfah, “What time did you have your Suḥūr with the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam)?” He said, “It was daytime but the sun had not come out yet.”
There are different opinions in this matter.
The first opinion has been articulated by Isḥāq Ibn Rāhway who narrated from Wakī‘ that he heard al-A‘mash say, “If I was not afraid of becoming famous, I would pray Fajr then have my Suḥūr.” Then Isḥāq mentioned from Abu Bakr al-Ṣiddīq and Ḥudhayfah similar to that, and then he said, “They did not used to see any difference between the time for eating and the time for the obligatory prayer.” This is the end of Isḥāq’s statement. This has also been narrated from Ibn Mas‘ūd. (So in summary, the first opinion is that one can eat and drink until just after Fajr has actually started, and not just that the time has “begun”, but after the adhan and iqamah etc.)
The second opinion: most of the scholars are of the opinion that one is to stop the Suḥūr by the beginning of Fajr, and this is the opinion of the four Imams and most of the scholars of different countries and something of similar meaning has been narrated by ‘Umar and Ibn ‘Abbās.
The people with the first opinion have used the statement of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam), “And eat and drink until Ibn Umm Maktūm gives the Adhān.” It is known that he was not giving the Adhān until Fajr had already begun. That is in al-Bukhāri and in some narrations it states: “He was a blind man and he was not giving the Adhān until it was said to him that, ‘The Fajr has begun! The Fajr has begun!’”
These people say the day begins when the sun rises (meaning that one can eat into the Fajr time).
The majority on the other hand used the verse: “Eat and drink until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct from the black.” Also the statement of Muḥammed (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam), “Eat and drink until Ibn Umm Maktūm gives the Adhān,” and his statement, “There are two Fajrs: the first one does not prohibit food and does not permit the prayer and the second prohibits food and permits the prayer.” Narrated by al-Bayhaqi in his Sunan.
They also said that the Ḥadīth of Ḥudhayfah is faulty and that the fault is that it is Mawqūf (a statement of a Companion alone), and that is Zirr is the one who had his Suḥūr with Ḥudhayfah. This was mentioned by al-Nasā’ī.
End of statement from Ibn’l-Qayyim.
(Muḥammed Taqi’l-Dīn said) I don’t agree with that, because Ḥudhayfah said, “That’s how I did it with the Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam)” and this is Marfū‘ (a statement/event elevated to the Prophet).
Out of all these Ḥadīths, we give Fatwa based on the middle opinion: that the true dawn which prohibits food on the fasting person and permits the prayer is as the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: the red dawn, the one that whose whiteness is mixed with some redness and is horizontal in the horizon. It is the one which fills the houses and streets and the people do not differ between them about it, and all people can identify it. Any other dawn such as the one identified by the Moroccans is false, it doesn’t prohibit food on the fasting person and doesn’t permit the Fajr prayer.
We usually delay our Fajr prayer more than half an hour after the Moroccan time, until we can see the true dawn. This is what we worship Allāh with and Allāh says the truth and He guides us to the straight path. We ask Allāh to show us the truth as truth and to help us to follow it and to show us the falsehood as falsehood and to help us to avoid it.
And all praise is due to the Lord of the Worlds.
I finished writing this before noon, Saturday the 4th of Shawwāl 1394 (1974) after the migration of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

The complexity of Islam. Not a unified religion but a divided religion into various factions, sects and cults.
There are 4 types of Muslims and groups.
1. Accept Quran, Hadith and Sunnah.
2. Quran and Sunnah only.
3. Quran only.
4. Quran and Hadith only.
Further divided up into:
4. Bahai Movement
6. Wahhabism (part of Sunnah and early Hadith)
7. Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement
8. Kharijite Islam
10. Messiah Foundation International
11. Nation of Islam
13. Five Percenters
14. Idara Tolu-e-Islam
15. Various terrorists organisations predominately from Wahhabism or Sunnah only groups.
Islam is not a monolithic faith. Muslims may believe it is united but this is far from reality with many stark differences. People will come across Quran only and Sunnah only groups. Whereas the majority believe in the Quran, Hadith and Sunnah of the Prophet. Extreme versions of Islam are taught in some groups even advancing terrorism. Be cautious of any group advancing terrorism and do not lend them your support.
The complexity of Islam is greater than what the average person believes or thinks. This accounts for the wide various interpretations of Islamic groups.
From the article: Separatists Put Kabbalistic Curse on Ukrainian Governor
In a desperate scramble for reinforcements, supporters of the flagging Ukrainian insurgency have invoked the angels of destruction against the uprising's No. 1 enemy, Kommersant reported.
Dnepropetrovsk Governor Ihor Kolomoisky has become the target of the Kabbalah mystic movement's rite of Pulsa Denoura, the daily said Monday, citing a rebel in the insurgent-held city of Horlivka.
The ancient ritual is intended to visit heavenly retribution upon a foe, leading to their death within six months, and is considered to be among the vilest curses of the Kabbalah movement, whose origins lie in the Jewish faith.
Many leading Israeli politicians, including the late prime ministers Yitzhak Rabin and Ariel Sharon, have been the subject of Pulsa Denoura curses, as, reportedly, was Bolshevik leader Leon Trotsky.
Kolomoisky, an ethnic Jew, had not commented on the report as of this article's publication.
The billionaire governor has turned his domain in central Ukraine into a hotbed of anti-separatism and has used his considerable wealth to fund forces fighting the insurgency.
So far, money has trumped magic in Ukraine, where the Army recently began to overpower the outnumbered rebels after a string of setbacks.
The last few days have seen a lull in the violence, with a cease-fire declared last Friday, though the insurgents reported isolated artillery attacks last night.
We accuse Russia of lacking freedom and democracy whilst one of its patron's owns the biggest stores peddling books of all sorts in the United Kingdom, often censoring controversial books from its bookshelves. But then even Putin lived with a Jewish family that observed Channukah. So those who believe Putin is anti-Jewish are sadly mistaken.
Mr. Putin said he was familiar with both the menorah and the Chanukah holiday, because as a child his family shared their communal apartment with a Jewish family. He fondly recalled the pleasant demeanor of the various family members, as well as their attempts to preserve their traditions despite Communist reprisals for practicing religion. The Prime Minister recalled that he often saw the father of the house poring over large Talmudic tomes.
Mamut is a Russian Jew who now resides in London, friends with Abramovitch.
From the Jewish Chronicle:
Mamut, who lives in West London, is very much an unknown quantity in the bookselling industry. He is described in profiles as being of Jewish heritage so perhaps we should not be too surprised by his interest. Jews have long been known as 'the people of the book' and certainly in the US all the polls show that Jews are among the most prolific book buyers.
Try find a book on "conspiracy" or a Christian book not related to "Catholicism" on its bookshelf. In their Christian section at least 4-5 books of the tiny section was devoted to Catholicism.
Alexander Mamut has closed Lenta.ru, and has evicted Rain TV as owner of Red October (an independent news channel).
Does Mamut himself personally put them in there? Yes, aside from Lenta.ru, whose liberal editor-in-chief Galina Timchenko was just fired, and the building where independent TV station just got an eviction notice, Mamut owns Live Journal, too.
