Time to Liberate Makkah, Once Again

Dhu al-Hijjah 11, 14412020-08-01

Hajj has been suspended for most but a handful of Muslims this year. Those that were unable to perform Hajj have not missed much since the Bani Saud have turned this divinely prescribed obligation into an empty ritual devoid of all meaning

Truth versus Saudi propaganda about Yemeni missile strike on air base near Jeddah

Crescent International

Safar 14, 14382016-11-14

The Ansarallah fighter’s missile strike at a Saudi air base near Jeddah has sent the Saudi regime into frenzied panic. The Bani Saud have unleashed their paid agents worldwide accusing the Houthis (the label used for Ansarallah fighters) of firing the missile at the Kaaba with the intention of destroying Islam’s holiest site. Nothing could be further from the truth but as the saying goes, a lie is half way around the world before truth has had a chance to tie its shoelaces.

Hajj: The Universal Invitation Part 10

Muhammad H. al-'Asi

Dhu al-Hijjah 03, 14332012-10-19

Next week we will all be here trying to renew and energise the celebration of Eid even though our collective memory is incapable of putting these meanings in proper context. As we approach the day of Eid, the tenth of Dhi Al Hijjah, (and) as we approach this day of our yearly assembly it might be worth our time in this khutbah- with the taqwa of Allah on our minds and in our feelings- to try to contribute to the proper contextualising of what al hajj means in at least one of its aspects, as there are plenty of meanings to this yearly assembly of committed Muslims. Let us try to look at the hajj as it was in the days of Allah’s Prophet before he was forty years old and before there was any revealed ayaat or Qur’an from Allah.

Following the Sunnah of the Prophet by prioritising the liberation of Makkah

Abu Dharr

Dhu al-Hijjah 22, 14282008-01-01

What you are about to read in this article may be regarded by some as controversial. These words are put together during the season of the Hajj, which is a good time to try to counter the tons of misinformation we have about the Saudi regime, which has done so much to diminish this annual expression of the independence and power of the Ummah to little more than a ritual void of warmth, enthusiasm, and spirit.

The Holy City was host to a very different gathering of Muslims from all over the Ummah, the “Kings, Heads of State and Government, and Emirs of the Member States” of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), the club of Muslim countries established after the burning of the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem in 1969

Challenges posed by the Prophet (saw) to the jahiliyyah society of Makkah

Zafar Bangash

Rajab 14, 14222001-10-01

Clashes occur within or between societies when ideological differences emerge. The pre-Islamic Makkan society was based on idol-worship; into this environment was introduced the message of tawheed, the Oneness of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala, embodied in the kalimah.

Malcolm X's Letter From Mecca (April 20, 1964)

Malcolm X (Malik el-Shabazz)

Shawwal 22, 13891970-01-01

We were truly all the same (brothers)—because their belief in one God had removed the ‘white’ from their minds, the ‘white’ from their behavior, and the ‘white’ from their attitude. I could see from this, that perhaps if white Americans could accept the Oneness of God, then perhaps, too, they could accept in reality the Oneness of Man—and cease to measure, and hinder, and harm others in terms of their differences in color.
