Danger Room What’s Next in National Security

Analyze This: The Mind of the Underpants Bomber

alg_umar-farouk-muallabHere’s a rare chance to step inside a would-be terrorist’s head. From 2005 to 2007, underpants bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab appears to have posted 310 times to the Islamic Forum on Gawaher.com, under the handle “Farouk1986.” Now, all of Farouk1986’s posts have been assembled into a single file, thanks to Evan Kohlmann, the NEFA Foundation’s indefatigable jihadism researcher. I’d be curious to see what you guys find out about the man who tried to take down Northwest Airlines flight # 253.

“i do not have a friend, i have no one to speak too, no one to consult, no one to support me and i feel depressed and lonely. i do not know what to do,” he complained in one post.

Online, he questioned whether it was okay to take meals with his parents, even though they ate meat he considered unclean. He asked if Muhammad were alive today, “would he watch [soccer], play it, encourage it or what?” He talked about how much he enjoyed his studies in Yemen. He wondered, “when is lying allowed to deceive the enemy?” And he denounced the “global War On Terror [which resulted] in the death of thousands of innocent lives and thousands more detained illegally without trial or judgement [sic].”

But that’s just the start of the trail Abdulmutallab left behind, online. Take a look at the Gawaher posts, poke around other sites, and post what you learn in the comments.

I don't know the specific reward for taraweeh. There's surely a lot of reward for it. Why not do both, taraweeh and the prayers in the 3rd of the night? Praying in the last 3rd of the night when Allah specially descends to the lowest heaven asking us what we want (add to that, in Ramadan!) is an opportunity we shoud try not to miss.

QUOTE(Minto @ Mar 10 2006, 03:44 PM) *
Do you think it was advisable to take a trip to Afghanistan when America was about to bomb it?

Do you think it sensible to cross the border in such a dubious manner. Especially after dumping one of your mates?

Do you think it sensible that after seeing bombs dropping in the distance, to carry on with your "holiday"?

Do you think it was sensible to hook up with a bunch of armed taliban fighters whilst on "holiday"

If you think that what these idiots did was anything but silly, you are an absolute fool.

What happened after that is all their own fault. Do you expect captured soldiers not to be interrogated?

If these were American soldiers captured by the taliban, they would be dead by now.

They should consider themselves lucky after such an idiotic and fool hardy thing to do.
Inciting racial hatred? Don't make me laugh. Enough muslims here are guilty of that.


Assalamu Alaykum

I hope you find true peace in your heart Minto, i really do so.

Yvonne Ridley use to be a journalist but was captured by the Taliban. She letter on became a muslim because of how humane she was treated relative to guantanamo detainees.

So i have a link for you. Please download and listen to it. Yvonne Ridley tells her story and Martin Mubanga a former guantanamo gives his story too. You might not be interested in Martin Mubanga's part, but please do listen to Yvonne ridley's with an open heart.

yup i went to the GPUE i remember it too. i actually thought it was pretty boring but yvonne ridley and galloway were alright i remember when it was galloways speech i was laughing because the guy next to me was hyper and was clapping and jumping like a lunatic. i think because everyone was excited about some non-muslim standing up for us. but for Galloway since the good speech its all been downhill.

also, do you really think there is a point in going to the march or any march? 2.5 million people turned up to stop the war in iraq-- did it make a difference? this land is not really a democracy.

sl.gif


Assalamu Alaykum

It might not be compulsory to go on demonstrations, but do not think it has no effect. I also use to think like that then someone explained to me it is not so.

Take for example the 2.5million that demonstrted against war in iraq. The ultimate goal and achievement would have been for the war not to have taken place, but that does not mean nothing was achieved. The following were achieved;

1. Recruitment into the British army has hit an all time low- rock bottom. They are working hard and spending a lot more in other to get a few british troops to fight for their cause.

2. The 2.5million people made a big statement. They show that the majority of people oppose the war. Had they not attended because they thought the war would still take place anyway, then it would have been an almost established fact that people just don't care. But they do , so they turned up in their multitudes.

3. The British and the American governments will atleast now hesitate, and not hasten to go to war with Syria or Iran. It is almost political suicide for that government in power,. they will be in danger of not being re-elected. Mind you if this war was to take place, atleast the fact that they know the general opinion is against it, they will hesistate, delay, and think twice.

And many more

As SAlaam Alaikum Farouk,
So you actually feel shame when you see a non-hijabi? Do you close your eyes and turn the other way? Do you cover young children's eyes? Sorry but hair is much more different than seeing anyone's chest.

salaam


Wa salam

Thank you for the nice questions sister. I do feel 'shame' when i see muslim not wearing the hijab. This shame is rather put better in an arabic word called 'Gheerah' and i don't know a hadith on the top of my head but, Allah and his messenger have gheerah and that is one of the reasons why Allah made Zinah haram. And it is good for muslims to have gheerah. And muslims who don't feel this gheerah when their brothers and sisters expose their awrahs are liable to be punished by Allah.

No i do not cover young children's eyes' and no i do not close my eyes and turn the other way. i lower my gaze.

And i agree the chest and the hair are not the same, but the hair of a woman can easily arouse a man.

I dont think it is allowed to be just friends with someone from the opposite sex. Except when thinking of marriage or when you have to work together.

Assalamu Alaykum(the peace be) to you all

Dear Darla,

I can understand what you are saying. But i can assure you, if you keep on thinking relatively and things ought to be like this, not like that because that's what you think, then you will keep on going round in circles and never come to a conclusion.

Think about all your believes and ideas, where are they coming from. You talk about the idea of freedom and everybody should be free. but i ask you, Are you free? Do you think you think freely? where are your ideas coming from? They are coming from variable sources and factors.

But what makes us muslims much more free than anyone on the face of the earth is we have one source and factor, and that is Our creator who knows best how we should live. and that's where we leave things.

wa salam (peace out)

I suggest you do more research whether hijab is an obligation or not Sister Dabenzine. I know for sure as a man that non-hijabed women do have a negative effect on men. Anyway as this is not the topic of discussion i leave it here.

I ask sisters this question, Imagine if you meet a man, who is wearing short knickers half way down his thighs and a sleeveless vest, or he walks around everywhere with only a towel and nothing more, and your parents urge you to marry him because he is pious, what would you do?

Awrah is awrah. Just like a man walking in half knickers down the streets is thought to be some what 'semi naked and detestable', alhamdulillah that's how brothers also see exposure of the awrah of a woman as being 'semi naked and detestable'

A very similar thing happened to me. People say hijab or the beard is not what its all about.My question is, when should we draw the line? If someone is a fornicator or an alcoholic, are we still going to be saying, they might change, they believe in their hearts...and give them the benefit of a doubt.

At the moment, what i would do is, if the sister is not wearing the hijab because she didn't know, but then as soon as she knew the obligation she submitted to it, then i might give it a second thought. Especially as hijab by consensus of majority of scholars is an obligation, and the prophet (S) said the ummah will never be wrong if they come to a consensus on an issue.

But if she is not wearing it for reasons like, after post 9/11 bla bla bla..., its too hot, its not beautiful.....then i will rather pick someone else.

The only time i think its worth to give benefit of a doubt is if the issue is not decisively agreed in consensus by scholars, i.e.obligatory of niqaab.

There is no contradiction in the 2 ayats i think. One says we should not eat meat if Allah's name is not mentioned, and then the other which says the meat of the people of the book is lawful means it is an exception!

The jews and Christians in the time of the prophet (S) obviously do not mentions Allah's name when slaughtering, nevertheless it was made an exception as halal meat.

My question is, one could argue that most of the companies supplying meat are christian. So does that make their meet halal?

May Allah forgive for what i say that is wrong

Assalamu Alaykum,

I am a foreign student in london and my parents are visiting at the moment and i am staying with them. I am of the view meat not slaughtered by muslims or people of the book is haram for consumption unless necessary. My parents are of the view as foreigners, we are allowed to say bismillah and eat any meat.

It occured to me i should not be eating with my parents as they use meat i consider haram. But i fear this might cause division and other complicated family problems.

I am allowed to eat the meat i consider haram with them, respecting their point of view and not causing any family division other the issue?


Please respond as quickly as possible as my tactic has been to eat outside and not at home till i get an answer.

Allah knows best.

I think some instruments( i dont know which specific ones) are allowed to be used during festive occasions for women only.

There is ahadith where the prophet (S) mentioned among the portents of the hour, muslims will call certain things that are haram with different names and will say it is hala. The among the things mentioned is wine and musical instruments. We all know wine is haram, so if musical instrments is also on the list, then it seems to be haram too. i fear we are at this time now as muslims are calling it names like Art, interlude, background sound...and we have people saying it is permisable.

Let's leave the issue to the scholars because they are better interpreters of hadith and might know about exceptions to the rulings we don't

Playing

This has the benefit that one physically excercises the body. but at what cost? Fighting, aggresion, rivalry, creating emnity...and the list goes on.

More importantly, i asked myself this question. If the prophet (S) was present when football is present, would he watch it, play it, encourage it or what? I honestly don't think the prophet (S) would sit back relax and enjoyy himself watching Beckam kick the ball around, but i don't know about him playing it or allowing others to play it. And if you look to the inheritors of the prophet (S), the Scholars, do any big scholar of great reputation play or spectate football? I dont know of any.

To finish off, i'm in no position to say spectating and playing football is haram, but i think if we want to reach a high level of Piety, it is best to stay away from it.

The prophet (S) said What is haram and what is haram is clear. but between the 2 are doubtful matters that most of the people don't know about. Whoever stays away from it saves his honour and his religion. Every king has a Hima (land) and the shepherd whose sheep graze near the hima of the king are likely to graze from the Hima of the King. Beware the Hima of Allah are his unlawful deeds (haram) [i paraphrased the hadith to some extent as i haven't memorised it word for word].

I think football is a doubtful matter and a good analysis of it under the hadith mentioned makes me come to the conclusion, Let's save our honour and religion and try and stay away from footbal and do sporting activities that are more islamically beneficial just like inheritors of the prophets, the scholars.

Let's do activities like jogging, running,paintball, archery (or anyother sport of the like that teaches target and aim), swimming, wrestling, weightlifting, martail arts, some form of fitness training like aerobics and so on. These are more beneficial for a muslim and some of them have been recommended or are similar to the type of sport recommended by Muhammad (S) the best of mankind (who knows better than any other man, as he is guided by Allah the All-knowing)

May Allah forgive me for the mistake and errors i wrote.

plaease have your say.

As most of us know, we should engage ourselves in some kind of sporting activity to stay healthy and fit, not only for the worldly benefits of being fit and healthy, but also because it is our islamic duty to do so.

So most of us play football, cricket and so on. There are so many debates always going on whether these sports are permissable in islam. Only Allah knows best. Whatever the case, i will mention my point of view and you could share yours if you wish.

(i am more familiar with football than any other sporting activity, so i will use it in my discussion. )

I have hardly ever heard a scholar of great knowledge and reputation comment directly on the issue of football. There are 2 parts of this issue. Spectating the game or playing it;

Spectating

I do not know of any islamic benefit to watching football. The reasons why it is best not to spectate the game are many such as Waste of time watching and talking about the game, Exposure of Awrah of the players and so many more.

This is the pattern for me. Keep on wearing the hat when i have short hair, but because i love me Afro, when it grows i neatly comb it and wear the hat sometimes, especially when i'm in a hurry and i don't want to comb my hear ad the prophet (s) those not like unkempt hair.

Anyway is it sunnah? some people say no even thawbs are just arabic clothing, and wearing your own local cultural clothing is sunnah. i dont know what is is though.

I posted this on the personal announcement page b4 it was closed and i was linked to this page. Were is Sister Sunshinez. We've really missed out on a very helpful sister, a very senior member and high poster too. Very famous in the Counselling room. Here's what i posted b4 on the wrong page;


Assalamu alaykum

I once came across a topic on this forum 'how will we know if a member on this forum dies' . I didn't have a look at it but now it seems important to me.

I'm writng this because A very helpful sister who was once a very active member seems to have disappered from this forum with no trace any of her posts. This sister used the name 'Sunshinez' . I suppose she just decided to quit the forum but i would just like to know whether that is so or something else, because who knows what might have happened?

So if anyone knows just tell me so that i am not worried.

Assalamu alaykum

I remember very well when you were engered, just when i was new in the forum. Alhamdulillah you finally got married and your relationship with your hus band is good.

Very unfortunate situation. sad sad sad. Uusally in this situations no party is happy at the end, the oppressor and the oppressed. But give Glad tidings to those who are patient!!! they are the true winners and you seem to have been patient and handling the situation well with the support of your husband. ideally we all hope your in laws change their behaviour and repent.

Du'as sister. insha Allah we will pray for you. this is shaitan's handiwork, there's nothing his more proud of than causing marital problems. So we pray Allah solves the problem in the best possible way. hasbunallahu wa ni'imal wakeel (Allah is the best disposer of all affairs), wallahu galibun ala amrihi wa la kinna aktharan naasi la ya'alamun (Allh is in control of his affairs but most of mankind know not).

Sister never lose hope in Allah, when you have problems complain (talk and pray) to Allah just like prophet ayyub said 'i only complain to you Allah' for his illness, and like prophet yaqub said 'patience is most fitting' when he was told yusuf was eaten by a wolf. Soon you will be out of the house insha Allah, and after this hardship will come ease, but know that the only place of final and true rest is in the hereafter.

I'm runnin out of time so i didn't read all the posts on this topic so i don't know whether this has been suggested yet. See with your husband if there is somebody that your in laws respect and will listen too, then plead your case with them so that they talk to your in laws.

Hope this helps

'parties'!!! i hope your talking about islamic wedding parties.

It depends a lot on situations and the type of body the person has. like if you have very dry skin, you ought to cream up regularly in order not to look like you sleep on the streets.


i read the prophet (S) takes his time to present himself to delegations and look good. As for me its a different situation. i use to be obese and yeah, i was under a lot of pressure to lose weight. Alhamdulillah when i wen't on a diet, lost 15kgs, and most of it in 3 weeks!!! So i still take special care to stay nice and fit and in good shape. One of my friends calls me a 'girl' due to the amount of time i spend in the shower and especially when i go, 'no i don't want to eat this, too unhealthy' and he goes 'your a proper woman!!!' and we just laugh.

being fat usually puts the fat person under pressure because people will tease and tease you, makes you take special care of how you look, plus nice and fit looks better than fat and chubby!!!

Thanks for the reply sis, thought no one would ever reply.Right let me be more specific, should muslims lie in order not to wrongfully get in trouble with Kafirs or for fear the kafirs would harm him or wrongfully accuse him of something they did not do, especially at this time we're in.

Asslamu alaykum

when is lying allowed to deceive the enemy? I know the prophet (S) allowed someone to say he didn't believe in Allah so that he will not be killed (or tortured- not too sure). so thisthe only case when tht deception is allowed/

Assalamu Alaykum

I am currently studying arabic in Yemen, and i advice if you want to learn arabic for the sake of the deen, learn fusha 9classical) arabic. this will help you understand the quran more, khutbas (friday sermons) and classical arabic islamic books and text. a good book that will get you speaking fusha with good grammar are the university of madinah books. there are other good ones but i specifically know the madinah books are good and some people become good arabic speakers by the time they are just in the second book.
make sure you practice and use what you learn from the book and if possible memorise some parts of it, its easy and beneficial.

If you want to learn arabic just for holidays then learn specific dialects, because the majority of the arabs speak their dialect only and little or no fusha at all.

Actually its very deceiving to me that there is any dialect that is very close to fusha. Some people say Yemeni dialect is the closest, some say jordanian. i can tell you for a fact that there are similarities but you will almost have no clue atimes when the yemeni or any other dialect is spoken. its possible to learn dialects though if you can speak another dialect or even fusha, but it doesn,t come automatically that you speak a dialect of fusha, so your fine will all dialects.

Dialect is not like American english or Australian... it is like a very very advanced slang, spoken with no grammar.

You can contact me if you have more enqueries and i will try to help you insha Allah.
