Help for mosque in Nigeria!!!

Date: 22/05/04


As- salamu alaykum warahmatu liahi wa barakatuhu
Greetings to you in the name of Allah (S.A.W)

We would like to introduce our mosque to you which is base in the southern part of Nigeria. Presently we are worshiping under a big tree as a mosque in a community that is predominantly dominated by the unbelievers. We are hoping and praying that we would be able to build a befitting mosque through the help of few people worshiping with us and with the aid of financial support from Muslim philanthropist. We would appreciate it if you would be able to support us in our aim. We are in need of Quran that we would give to people when we preach to them all. Support in kind and cash would be to the glory of Allah...

Thanking you for your positive response in the name of Allah (S.A.W).
Yours Faithfully

Manipulation of the American Public

Date: 07/05/04 13:49

Has anyone given any thought to the sudden ascendance of Kerry as front runner when he was seriously considering abandoning his race for the presidency just prior to the IOWA primary. I believe the Repulicans decided he was the weakest of the candidates,and therefore ensured his successes in the primaries, given his wishy washy position on many serious issues. Isnt it interesting that the only issue that he comes out strongly against are those associated with jobs. On issues regarding the war in Iraq , the Jewish-Palestinian conflict, and circumstances preceeding the WTC attack he seems very wishy washy..

I think the election of a real candidate to oppose Bush in November has been seriously compromised thus allowing the continuation of Republican policies for another four years.


Israel is wrong in every policy

Anyone with half a brain should realize that Israel is wrong 100% of the time in every policy it makes. They are out to steal as much land as they can and they use the US and it's zionist stranglehold over the US to do it.

Dear Ms Joan

asalam alaikum ,
i came across your web site accidentally through the google search machine.
to be honest i really dont know how to start my story and my cry for help. Out of my despair ,and the darkness which is surrounding me over the years , i decided to sit on line that may be by the grace of the almighty god ...........may be i will come across something ..................

i have deep faith in my lord and ahl bait alrasul ............if it was not the prayers of abaaa abdillah alhussein and mawlaaaati zaainab i would not be sitting here still breathing and able to write this mail to your self.

i came on line to find out about jinns , and black magic, and so forth......... and i came across the article of SHEYKH SYED MUBARAK ALI JILANI ALHASHIMI. and i gathered from my reading to the article its seems that he may be able to help me ........as iam reaching a point of no return now ...........and taking away my life has become a thought that is tickling my mind all the time.....

but every time i look up at the sky and call abaa abdilah alhussein ...........to give me strength to go onnn ..........as i know that there is a cure for me somewhere out there there is somebody out there can help me ......... but the time has to come for the lord to permit it to happen .........and i know that my cure is in the quraan ............

i will tell just shortly my story , the story of my life ...........

From the very young age may be five or less my journey ......started i got possessed by a jin it wasnt a total possession , a male one and as days went by and i grew into a woman more things started to happen and happen .....at night ........my mother couldnot figure out the problem nor did i but i have always thought that something is not right .........especially when i started to blossom into a woman ......i never had any feminine feelings or emotions.......and things were happening to me at night............. needless i say more ............over the years iam suffering and my mother has gone blind cause of the constant cry on me......... what i hv mentioned above is just a drop in the ocean...........

i crossed the oceans looking for help and cure , i get better and then it all come back again........

the story of my life is a long one and sad one...............

but i know no one can change this but the lord and with the help of ahl bait of al rasul.

its only recently i came to know the truth of a part of my suffering through out my entire existence and that is a male jin has made me his woman and he is aaaaaaashiq of me and willlnt let me lead ever a normal life. and this took place of young age since i was a small girl........ apart from other things there in my body......

i am really unwell my mind and body is not under my controll .........iam tortured all the time .......


i decided to write to your self mybe being your fellow muslim u might be interested in helping me to get in touch to this sheykh and may be through you after the permission of the lord will be able to put an end to what iam going through over the years..........i am running out of hope and sabr......i have never had a peaceful night sleep in my entire existence.........least to say.........even the air which i breath into doesnt taste the same as to you..........i dont see the trees green nor the colors of the flowers...........

I really hope that this letter of mine will receive your compassion and mercy and help me lil laaaah and wa fi sabeelilah......... as your reward will be in this world and day after

I reside in the United Kingdom in London

i wil be grateful if you can give me the address of this shaykh and telephone number where i can call him and ask him if he could help me , or else u can talk to him your self ...or any other way you think is convenient to you... inshaalhah u will not ignore this letter of mine ......and i look forward to hearing from you.

Student from Australia needs info on Shia organizations

Friday, April 02, 2004

Assalamoualaikoum dear brother
Indeed i should say that your website has provided me with a lot of support and hope.

i am a 22 year old pharmacy student in Australia and i am expected to graduate this year with a bachelor of pharmacy with honours, insha allah.

My most cherished desire in this life and ultimate goal is to master the Arabic language and alongside become highly learned in Islamic laws and jurisprudence as taught by our Ahlul Bayt (AS). i am very hard working and ready to fly across the whole world so as to accomplish this dream, so that my imams (may allah be pleased with them) shall be proud of me.

i am writing you this letter in view of asking for your advice on this matter. i shall be grateful if you could let me know about any shia organizations in Iran or Iraq or Syria or Canada or even UK, that provide for scholarships or any other kind of financial assistance for young Muslim international students who wish to pursue such a path. i am aware of the obstacles that are lying in front of me, besides money matters, but i am more than willing to go through them. i can only hope that i shall get people to advice me along the way.

Fee amanillah

May ALLAH SWT bless all those who have love for our prophet Muhammad (saw) and his holy progeny (may Allah be pleased with them all) ameen.

Letter: Girl student for religious studies in Iran

Date: 22/03/04 10:21

Dear Sir,

I would request you to help me in following situation.

A young Shia educated girl (Bachelor of Arts) wants to go to Iran to study Religion. She wants admission in a hawza and acquire full knowledge of Fiqh, Hadith, History and other uloom taught in Hawza. She even wants to take Dars e kharji (Ultimately). However, she has financial constraints. She understands that the expenses of these students are borne by the institutes (Hawza) and Iranian government.

Is it possible that you send a comprehensive guideline for her, or alternatively, give me the addresses of people/institutes who can help in this regard? The student is Syed Ithna Ashri.

They Are Not The Enemies Of The People In This World They Are The Actuall Enemies Of Syeda Zahra Fatimah (Sa) They Stopped Bibis Grandsons Shabehe Taboot Of Imam Sajjad (As) From Taking Place On The Shahadat Date Of The 25th Of Muharram! The Reasons They Opposed The Jaloos Was As Follows “We Do Not Care That If We Actually Offend The Ahlul Bait But We Do Care To Not Offend The Other Schools Of Thought” (Ie Sunni Fiqh) Now Can One Justify The Injustice What The Matami Azaadar Are Going Through. That Is The Main Reason Why Luton Has Been Nick Named (Koofa) Now How Does One Propose To Attend Any Form Of Commemoration In Koofa Whilst In The Presence Of So Called Yazid?

Dear Ms. Syed,

I'm the Paris Bureau Chief and Middle East Editor for Newsweek, and I also write a Web column, Shadowland, about some of the murkier intrigues in international politics. So I was fascinated when I came across an article from last October that appeared in Jafariya News suggesting the Iranians were behind the Baqir Hakim killing. The analysis is similar to what I've heard from both French and Arab sources:


I'd appreciate it if you could tell me a little more about your publication and yourself, and also whether you've been able to follow up on this line of inquiry.

Info needed for study at Hawzah in Lebanon or Syria

Date: 25/01/04

As salaam alaykum,

Hello, my name is Muhammad Shahid. I am 21 years old and a convert to Islam. I am originally from Holland and I follow the Jafariyya mathab.

I would like to begin a study at Hawzah in Lebanon or Syria, insha Allah. Could you provide me some addresses which I can contact?

I almost have absolutely no information at all about Hawzahs in Lebanon and Syria. So if you can help me out with this, then I would be more than grateful!

Also, the Hawzah which I would attend should teach in English. This is because I don't speak Arabic. I heard there are a lot of Hawzahs where non Arab speaking students study Islam, so insha Allah you can provide me with more information about this.

Hopefully I will hear from you soon, insha Allah. I am looking forward to your reply.

Thanks for printing the truth

Wednesday, November 5, 2003

Greetings to the editor, thank you for printing the truth about America. No one knows more about America than black Americans. We are still subjected to harassment like lynching, last hired first fired, when Byrd was dragged to his deaf in Texas, body parts spread all over and he still tried to hold his head up so his head would not be torn of after the loss of limbs, he could not keep his head up so he was killed, plus president Bush never told the Byrd family about any sorrow he felt, at that time he was governor of Texas.

Also we black vets want to know why we can serve in this un-godly USA, and cant be police in our own communities, nor fire fighters. America has a terrible race and religion problem, like one Sheriff said arrest anyone darker than snow, from division county North Carolina, after 9/11 I was falsely arrested the claim which all shias know is a lie.

My mother died at THE RALEIGH GENERAL HOSPITAL in 1995 in BECKLEY WEST VIRGINIA because of her black race, so how can America help Iraq or any other country when they have not helped black Americans

Japanese Muslim converts in Iran

The current situation in Iraq

Thursday, Sep 25, 2003

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Assalamu Alaikum
I am deeply saddened by one of your contributors referring to the Iraqi Governing Council as being not supported by the Iraqi people. On the contrary, this is a very positive step, especially for the Shia population of Iraq, and I believe the majority of Iraqis believe this to be the case. I agree it is not the perfect situation, but nothing apart from Allah is perfect, however the establishment of the Governing Council is a step in the right direction... The majority of the members of the Governing Council are well known for their opposition to the criminal Saddam, and I do not believe they are all "yes men" agreeing to everything the USA want to do. I believe their presence is essential to voice the opinions of the Iraqi people, without which the USA could do anything that it pleased.

Another point I wanted to raise was that of the so-called freedom fighters, or mujahideen in Iraq, as they are called by some deluded people. I will give you a few examples of what they have done and you can judge for yourselves if they are truly mujahideen or just criminals. Firstly, they carried out an explosion that destroyed the Jordanian Embassy in Iraq, and injured dozens of Iraqis. Secondly, they carried out an explosion that destroyed the UN headquarters in Baghdad, and killed tens of people and injured hundreds, many being Muslims. Thirdly, they carried out a huge explosion in Najaf, killing dozens and injuring hundreds of Mumineen coming out of Friday prayers, including Allama Sayyid Baqir Al-Hakim. Fourthly, they tried to assassinate Sayyid Ali Al-Waedh, the representative of Sayyid Ali Al-Sistani in Kadhimain. At the same time a woman was found entering the shrine of Imam Musa Al Kadhim carrying a huge amount of explosives, wanting to blow it up. Today, 24/09/03, there were two explosions that blew up two busses injuring many innocent Iraqis.

These are only a few of the daily crimes taking place by the Wahhabis and Saddam's servants, who are now working hand in hand. An example of this can be seen in Fallujah. Fallujah is the centre of Wahhabism in Iraq. Whenever an operation to blow up an American vehicle occurs, a crowd gathers carrying the picture of their beloved Shaytan (Saddam). May Allah's curse be upon the Saddamites and Wahhabis working in Iraq, and may Allah bring peace and stability to this country of holy shrines. The Iraqi people want peace after suffering 35 years of oppression under the corrupt Baathist regime. The presence of the Americans is only temporary, and had the Muslims and Arabs rid us of Saddam and his bloodthirsty regime there would have been no reason at all for their presence.

Incorrect quote in your article

Sat, Sep 20, 2003

Dear Sirs or Madams:

I read your article found at the URL

This article discusses my speech in the following manner: "Rabbi David Seidenberg of California gave affirmations of brotherhood and peace based on the Old Testament, which, he added, is firmly against war and violence of any kind."

This bears no relationship to what I said at all. Please go back and read what I said, if possible, and please correct this article!

Journalistic Injustices

Mon, Sep 15, 2003

By: Ghalib Sayyed

The powers that be consider journalism the most important pillar of the pillars of world States. At present all wars either they are won or lost, it is media that is playing a key role in it. Pakistan keeps an important place in the world states, and because of its being an atomic power as well as occurrence of changes in the East and the West, its importance has increased manifold. Formation of Pakistan is courtesy to Dr. Mohammad Iqbal Lahori and Mohammad Ali Jinah, and it is the only state in the world, which came into being under Two-Nation Theory. It was named Islamic Republic of Pakistan, and it was “Islam” that was written as its state religion in its constitution. But unfortunately there is monopoly of special stratums over journalism as is in other state departments. Here government or its minions always have control on electronic media, while dictatorship of a few journalist families is established on print media, and on the top of the list are Nizami family and Rehman family.

Deem it a bad luck that Nizami family speaks of Islam and Pakistan in apparent in its newspapers: daily Nawa-e-Waqt, daily The Nation, and Family Magazine etc; show their monopoly and kinship on the thoughts and ideologies of Dr. Mohammad Iqbal Lahori and Mohammad Ali Jinah; outwardly they consider themselves spokesman of opposition and against government, but the benefits they have gained from every government, no one else has. In 1977, attack of General Ziaul Haq on democratic government caused them to earn great profit; they earned a lot.

With shia school of thought, this family pretend their friendship while on the other, their papers always tried in veils to present Pakistan as a non-shia State; they utilize all their energies that lest shia beliefs and ideologies be highlighted in any condition. They shrink even from putting shia news items. If any one doubts then he should go through these papers for one month that how much importance these papers give to a specific sect. Though there are dozens of fresh newspapers in the field but they need a time to go forward, and the same “journalism Dictators” are obstruction in their path.

Today, we speak of problems being faced by Muslims in other countries, and that they have not such facilities possessed by others; even in prison, they are not given halal meals. But if the same violation of rights is being committed against shia in a country which founder was Shia and which is not sectarian stae constitutionally but an Islamic Starte, then such injustice is worthnoting as well as concerning…!!!

In this situation, when shia nation faces an extreme bigotry behavior, there in this nation are present a few such rich persons who call themselves shia and who always have an access to the assemblies, they always speak on these forums only their self and family – it’s a tragedy of shia nation!

In this situation, shia wherever they are they should:

- Work for eminence of Islam and unity of Muslims making clear that unity can go forward only when there is no encroachment upon each other’s rights, and respect each other

- Keep in touch with each other. Support those organizations, which are working for eminence of truth and not for earning money

- Muslim rulers have given nothing save problems, in such a situation, people should become one and raise voice of protest for each other

- Those who keep pain for Islam in their hearts should record their protest to these newspapers by email or fax urging them to change their policy

- Likewise, attention of the powers that be should also be drawn by all means available i.e. telephone, fax, email and resolutions that give ideological representation to shia in all state departments including media.

Post on tragic Najaf attack by Joan Bonnington

Sat, August 30, 2003

I am sorry for what happened today. There are those in this world who would have the people of this world fighting each other instead of working together. They work most diligently to have each of us thinking that the other is intent on doing harm to the other.

I wonder what would happen if we could rise above the chaos and embrace the goodness in others. To me, goodness wants to see a healthy future for all of humanity--mothers, fathers, grandparents and grandchildren living the lives they were meant to live.

Why do people try to be God or Allah? Life is hard enough as it is.

Well done keep it up, suggestions…

Monday, August 11, 2003

Dear Mr. Salman Alvi,

Ya Ali (AS) Madad, AOA!
How r u! This is Syed Waqar Haider Naqvi from Lahore. I m really pleased to search this site on net. I was searching an Islamic site, which can provide me a good stuff to share my time with the Islamic themes. So I went on yahoo search and began searching. This site was one of the twenty most popular sites all over the world related to Shia Isna-e-Asharia. I really don't have the words to praise your efforts. You people are serving the nation in very well manners and in the right direction. In fact I must say that in this materialistic world you people are sharing a lot of time in the service of nation. I’ m sure that you people will be awarded reward by the Mohammad O Ale Mohammad. No one can award you except them. But really I’ m wondered that you are guiding the community and providing the good things i.e. knowledge, stuff, and so many things including Biographies to the nation.

I m here just to request you people that in your page some things must be there so that we may take the guidance from you and can have the easy approach to the Ulama-e-Karam. The things that I want in this page are the following:-

1- Open debate on different topics if a single person have the query and want to get the guidance from elders. You know that our youth don't have the sufficient knowledge of Islam including myself. And we (as a community) don't have a habit to consult the Islamic Books. Though this is our fault but this habit cannot be adopted with out interest. So this site can be a source of exchanging our views in different aspects.

2- There should be a questionnaire segment in this site where we can ask any question and can get the answer with the proofs not with the logics. Proofs means that the answers must be given from the authentic books of Islam which cannot be challenged at any forum. And the answer should have a complete reference that from which book you are quoting the reference and answering the youngsters.

3- You should induce the youth for the Azadari -e- Imam (AS) by offering the Qaul-e-Imam. I mean that there should be a page related to Azadari- -e Syed ush Shuhada (AS) from where people should open the page and can found the Farman-e- Masoomeen (AS) related to Azadari and other things. There should be teachings and lesson that in the way of Azadari if one weep that wheat would be reward of it?? No doubt that there is page in it related to Azadari but I’m still thirsty that what I wanted to see in it is not found?? Kindly make it more improved and induce the youth from this page for Matam -e- Mazloom Karbala.

4- Kindly include all the Biographies of Ahlebayt (AS) in it which can guide the youth of the nation.

I know that I don't have any right to ask you people to change the existing things and add some more things. I agree that criticism is really very simple thing. Those people who don't do any thing they just criticize the people who are serving the nation. But really I assure my co-operation all the time. I’m in Lahore and doing research and development in a leading Garments company. If you are agreed with my suggestions then I would really thankful to u for your deeply acceptance of my views. But in case you reject my suggestions then I would also be thankful to you that you gave me much time to read my this long mail.

Take care of yourselves May Maoula Ali (AS) give you more opportunity to serve the nation and you people would definitely be rewarded and may Maula prolong your lives.

Thanks a lot for being with me here. I would appreciate if you can reply me even in very short lines.

Waqar Haider.
