The US, its European allies and puppet Arabian regimes have not given up on overthrowing Bashar al Asad’s government in Syria. The ‘fight’ against takfiris is merely a pretext.


US, Israel addicted to perpetual war

“Five Star” Hajj

Hajj is supposed to remove all distinctions of wealth, class, position or authority but the Saudis have reduced it to a purely commercial enterprise devoid of its Qur’anic content and Prophetic sunnah.


A jahili Hajj

Abu Dharr

Makkah and al-Madinah were always open to all Muslims but under the Saudis, these have become off-limits. If the Prophet (saws) or Prophets Ibrahim and Ismail (as) wanted to perform Hajj today, the Saudis would insist they obtain a visa before coming!


Saudi plan to destroy the Prophet’s tomb

Zafar Bangash

The Saudis have repeatedly brought up the subject of destroying the Green Dome over the Prophet’s (saws) tomb and relocate his body from there. How diabolical can they get?

Takfiris and imperialists: partners in crime


The takfiri project is created by the Americans and zionists and financed by the puppet Arabian regimes of the west. Few are taken in by the latest US propaganda ploy

Letters To The Editor

US, takfiris and the Zionists

Letters To The Editor

Crimes of the Saudi regime

Letters To The Editor
