Some Tid-Bits

  • Muslim Scholarship Non-Profit: Dollar-A-Day Scholarship Fund, Inc.
  • Remember the MSA East-Zone Conference
  • When NYPD wears a Muslim topi.
  • Ali Timimi update: 2/19 hearing classified. Shaykh’s wife: “Lawyer assured us that it went very well and he remains optimistic.”
  • Shaykh Abdullah ibn Jibreen underwent a heart operation last month but remains in the hospital. Make du’a that Allah grants him shifaa.
  • Abu Usamah AdDhahabi’s son passes away. Inna lillahi wa inna alahi rajioon.
  • Lots of things going on in Pakistan. The drama is probably not ended yet. Still up in the air what Mr. 20% (Presidential role allows 100% increase in “commission”), Zardari, has up his sleeves. Get the lotas from PML-Q and get rid of Gilani? Can’t put anything past this crook.
  • George Galloway has been banned from entering Canada. Sign the petition to speak out against this misguided decision:

    alhamdolillah. you have to love George Galloway, if for no other reason than for how much the Zionists hate him. they hate him so much that they will destroy themselves in attacking him. did you listen to that crazy man from Toronto? “if [Galloway] uses those other means” to address the Canadian groups he was scheduled to address, “we will see to it that the Canadian government will be monitoring every individual and organization…”

    those were the Zio-Nazi’s own words!! he wants to turn Canada into Israel, and turn average Canadians into non-Jews: ie, deny them any decency and self-expression in their own lands. Galloway is right — year after year he has gone to Canada with exactly the same message he takes now. nothing has changed except for the desperation and boldness of the Zionists there, and the complicity of the neocons in Canada with them.

    well, complicity may not be the right word — more like idiocy.

    may Allah restore Canada to those who love Canada, and usurp those who have insisted on using Canada’s borders as a Zionist buffer zone.

    mashaAllah, Hassan. may Allah put barakat in the time He gives you in Saudi, so close to the Haramain that you can just drive there for Umrah on a whim, alhamdolillah.

    Any Somalis in the audience— please let us know if you are interested in talking with the producer. info at muslimmatters dot org:

    Hello, I\’m a news producer with the CBS affiilate in Minneapolis. I am doing some research on the missing Somali men from Minnesota. I was wondering if you had any good resources that could help me with Muslim culture. I also want to tell a fair story. It is very easy to get your typical political figure heads to talk. But I want to talk to everyday Somali people. Can you help me? I can be reached at xxx

    I am SICK of this ZARDARI. No good has come from him.
