Jumada' al-Ula' 04, 14382017-02-01

Capitalism has resulted in accumulating wealth in the hands of a few people while impoverishing the overwhelming majority of people in the world. Today 62 richest people have as much wealth as the bottom half of 3.6 billion people. This is beyond obscene.

Zafar Bangash

Rabi' al-Thani 03, 14382017-01-01

Nigerian army attacks IMN, again

Zafar Bangash

Rabi' al-Awwal 01, 14382016-12-01

Nigerian army’s sole purpose of existence seems to be to attack and kill as many members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria as it possibly can. Following the army’s massacre of 1,000 members of IMN last December, it embarked on another bloodbath last month.

Zafar Bangash

Both the Kashmiris and Palestinians are suffering the brutal occupation of their land by alien invaders. Both occupations are the direct result of British colonial intrigue.

Zafar Bangash

Safar 01, 14382016-11-01

A common threat from the takfiri terrorists has forced the two regimes in Egypt and Syria to cooperate with each other. This is a blow to Saudi machinations in the region.

Zafar Bangash

Dhu al-Hijjah 29, 14372016-10-01

Outcome of the Islamic conference in Grozny

Zafar Bangash

Dhu al-Hijjah 29, 14372016-10-01

It would have been far better for the nearly 200 Islamic scholars gathered in Grozny to avoid hurling labels of takfir at those they disagree with. Instead, they should have condemned their actions.

Understanding Hajj beyond rituals

Zafar Bangash

Dhu al-Qa'dah 29, 14372016-09-01

Despites its being one of the most important pillars of Islam, most Muslims know little understanding about it beyond rituals. Hajj’s most important function—declaring dissociation from the mushrikeen—is seldom mentioned. It must be understood and revived.

Zafar Bangash

Dhu al-Qa'dah 29, 14372016-09-01

Muslims have enormous wealth at their disposal: $11.5 trillion almost equal to the US GDP of $17 trillion. How Muslim wealth is utilized will have enormous implications for their future well-being.

Zafar Bangash

Shawwal 27, 14372016-08-01

Zafar Bangash

Al-Masjid al-Haram and al-Masjid al Aqsa

Zafar Bangash

Ramadan 26, 14372016-07-01

Muslims know that Masjid al-Aqsa is under illegal Zionist occupation but most Muslims have failed to understand that Masjid al-Haram in Makkah is as much under occupation, albeit under that of people with Muslim names. Unless both are liberated from the clutches of these tyrants, Muslims will achieve little progress in the world.

Crimes of the Bahraini regime

Zafar Bangash

Ramadan 26, 14372016-07-01

All regimes in the Muslim East (aka the Middle East) are dictatorships regardless of the label they carry. The Bahraini regime is made up of the minority al-Khalifa family that is brutally suppressing the majority Shia population. The regime’s decision to strip a respected alim, Shaikh Issa Qassem of his citizenship is likely to short-circuit the miserable existence of this pathetic regime.

Dealing with the problem of Bani Saud

Zafar Bangash

Sha'ban 25, 14372016-06-01

Muslims must understand that Bani Saud are a colonial creation that are serving the interests of imperialism and Zionism. Under their control, historical sites have been destroyed and Hajj reduced to mere rituals.
