Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’oun – From Allah we come & to him it is we return

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’oun – From Allah we come & to him it is we return

Today, my father turned 70

But there’ll be no celebrations, no hugs and no joy.

On 25-Jumada al-Awwal 1434AH, Saturday the 6th of April 2013 I lost my father, my friend, my mentor.

My father had fought cancer for the last two years of his life and did so with a determination and stoicism that belied the true nature of the savage affliction that was ravaging his body.

He fought it to his last breath and he fought it with dignity.

I thank you all for your calls and words of comfort. All I can ask is that you make duah for my father that Allah has mercy on his soul, forgives any of his wrongdoings and elevates his status in the akirah.

My father’s legacy is huge, how does the eldest son follow in the footsteps of the eldest son?

To my father, “The Big Man” I leave you in the care of Allah, as nothing is lost that is in his care.

Over this same last two year period, I have lost my Aunt, a dear school friend that I grew up with and father to 3 young boys, both to cancer, while another one of my friends remains hospitalised on long-term life support. As many of you know, I’ve had my own health issues & quite simply, I do not have it in me to continue any more.

The cathartic release that writing has provided, this blog, the twitter battles, it’s no longer enough, and the anger is too visceral.

I’m cashing out and leaving town.

But I know, that I am my Fathers son & it is his blood and his anger that flows through my veins, it was his battle for justice & activism that had me politicised as a two year old.

I know that I am my Mothers son & it is her blood and her passion that had me on the picket lines as a six year old…..but those are stories for another day.

My revolution, my struggle, my jihad, it’ll continue and in time I’m sure I’ll reactivate this blog and The Akh will be resurrected, but for now, I’m hanging the mask up.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

May the peace, mercy & blessings of Allah be with you all

The Akh

My pictures from the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2012

Goodwood Sculpture – Infinity Loop

I attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend & thought I’d share a few pictures:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So what cars did I find interesting?

Formula 1 cars for the sheer engineering.

The Bentley Le Mans car for it’s brute power.

The 1985 Audi Sport Quattro S1 – with snow plough front end, the only car to be designed with a ruler.

1963 Mercedes 300SL (gullwing) – possibly my favourite car of all time

Pagani Zonda R

Some of the bikes were pretty special too….

Carl Fogarty Petronas bike

Valentino Rossi’s Ducati

I had to take a picture of the Ford Cortina, it was in showroom condition.

As was the fully restored 1967 Mk2 Jaguar S type – with offers being invited over £65,000!

I much preferred the old, restored Ford Mustang to it’s newer version.

While Bike exhaust manufacturer Akropovic showed off their creation, the Morsus a perfect fit between form and function – though that seat would give you splinters!

It’s not just a concept – the bike is being produced:

Don’t know if I’d have that over a Ducati 199 Panigale

So there you have it, my round up of the best of the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2012

Hotter Than A Pile Of Curry is Three years old!

Catch me on twitter @HotterThanCurry

That’s right, Hotter Than A Pile Of Curry turns three years old today!

765 published posts, hundreds of thousands of views and endless comments….The Akh thanks you for your patronage over the last few years and hopefully look forward to your continued support over the coming years.

Over the last few years, I’ve mapped out how a potent mix of an unethical and murderous Foreign Policy primarily influenced by zionist interests is contributing to a never ending & escalating War of Terror.

The ones to benefit from this of course are special self interest groups, like the Military Industrial Complex who make money from every bullet and bomb that’s fired.

In amidst all of this Muslims in Britain have struggled with their identity and how to implement the Quran, Hadith and Sunnah to inspire, guide and lift this Ummah out of the oppressive conditions it faces.

Many a Muslim in the UK has been cowered into silence thanks to the COINTELPRO strategies of the intelligence agencies designed to make Muslims look bad in the eye of the masses. Coupled with a rise in the far right racist movements like the English Defence League and the militant jewish zionist extremists these exemplify the ever increasing threats Muslims in the UK face resulting in a rise in Islamophobic incidents.

The only way through this, is to realise the forgotten fard of Jihad Fi’Sabeel’Allah within media and politics.

Examples of Non Muslim Extremism have to be highlighted wherever possible, to show the hypocrisy of the political establishment.

This comes at a time where media ownership and control have been shown to be as important as politics itself.

If you needed it, the Islamic reasoning for Muslim participation in the fields of media and politics are clear cut.

As Muslims across the Middle East fight for their freedom it’s high time Muslims realise the freedoms we have in the UK, and fight that bit harder to lift the occupation for our people in Palestine.

So, put aside the petty differences that you have been taught, and understand we are all in this struggle together, understand the power and leadership nexus of the past to guide you in to the future.

Saudi & Orientalist Propaganda at the British Museums’ Hajj Exhibition

The Hajj Exhibition at the British Museum is viewed as a great dawah opportunity by many Muslims. As far as I’m concerned it’s a propaganda piece for the House of Saud project & it’s Orientalist backers.

After much cajoling by friends, I finally bit the bullet and decided to attend the Hajj Exhibition in London, more as an excuse to catch up with old friends and less to actually have my own religion and history explained to me.

For years I’ve avoided the British Museum, despite its new atrium and the sheer wonder of it’s architectural splendour, it’s the contents of the building that trouble me. The swag, the loot, the filthy lucre, centuries of ill gotten gain courtesy of the British Empire looting and pillaging from every known corner of the globe, for King, Queen & Country dear boy.

Putting those issues aside, I entered the exhibition and within the very few first minutes, whilst reading one of the plaques, I remarked to one of my friends:

“Harry St. John Philby? You know who he is right?”

Harry St. John Bridger Philby (1885-1960) Riyadh

Instead of talking about the importance of the Hajj or what the central role of Mecca is to Islam, why would they (the backers of the exhibition) choose to talk about Harry St. John Philby?

Harry St. John Philby, as the blurb said, was among one of the first westerners to enter Mecca (pretend to be a Muslim) to undertake the Hajj and to see what it was that drives Muslims to carry out the pilgrimage.

What it didn’t tell you, and what most people would just walk right past without noticing is that Harry St. John Philby was a spy who worked for the British Military Intelligence. His progeny would be one Kim Philby, who would work the same field as his father and end up being exposed as a double agent working for the KGB.

As we continued down the exhibition path and my disdain beginning to recede somewhat, I noticed there was an entire section on the “Arab Revolt”.

Yes.

The Arab Revolt that was created by men like Philby & Lawrence (of Arabia) of the British “Mesopotamian Expeditionary Force” to launch an armed uprising against the Caliphate.

I’ve written before about Abdul Aziz ibn Saud the bandit chieftain & his marriage of convenience with Britain to destroy the Islamic Empire.

Hijaz Railway - Remains of Exploded Train from Arab Uprising 1918

The exhibition glorified the terrorist attacks like the destruction of the Hijaz Railway, that ran from the centre of the Caliphate, Istanbul to Damascus and onto Medina.

You can see more pictures on this subject from the excellent picture blog of Jerry C Miller

The exhibition then took great lengths to show how great the Saud family was by demonstrating the railway line they built in it’s place some hundred years later.

I’ve read “The Great Theft Wrestling Islam From The Extremists” by Khaled Abou El Fadl and the following surmises what Abd’Al’Wahaab felt about the Caliphate:

So what you have is a foreign superpower (Britain) effectively aiding, abetting and installing by means of outright terrorism, a puppet regime that will favour it (sound familiar? Libya, Syria) whilst destroying the Islamic Empire at the same time.

This very same regime today preaches the message of obeying your leaders, whilst being formed on the exact opposite.

Hypocrisy?

It’s always been the Orientalists dream to understand the strength of Islam and what drives Muslims. Once they figured it out, they could subtly deconstruct that core element to drive their own agenda. For example we have London’s SOAS University , which was created with a remit to train the future leaders of the former British colonies to run them just as their past colonial masters had done so. It’s no coincidence that Mirza Tahir Ahmad, the former leader of The Qadiani’s was trained at SOAS.

Who's who? Haim Weizmann & Prince Feisal, Arabia, 1918

You can read about the Dönmeh connection to the House of Saud in Saudi Arabia in a report titled “The Emergence of Wahhabism and its Historical Roots,” dated September 2002 and released on March 13, 2008, by the U.S. Defence Intelligence Agency.

You can read Said Nasir’s book, ‘The History of the Saud Family’, where it’s maintained that in 1943, the Saudi ambassador to Egypt, Abdullah bin Ibrahim al Muffadal, paid Muhammad al Tamami to forge a family tree showing that the Sauds and Wahhabs were one family that descended directly from the Prophet Mohammed SAW to strengthen their legitimacy as rulers.

You see it’s not that difficult to run counter propaganda.

The truth is that many Muslims are ignorant of their own history and religion.

For a religion that was unveiled with the words IQRA! (Read!) we as a people know little of Islam nevermind the knowledge of our history or the treachery committed by those who garb themselves in cloaks of respectability and piety.

A people who don’t read will fall for anything.

Iqra….Iqra….IQRA!!!

—————————————————————————————————

UPDATE

It seems that Qaisra Khan, the project curator of the Hajj Exhibition at the British Museum has read what I’ve written and has labelled me an extremist for writing this blog.

I am willing to share a platform with Qaisra Khan or anyone from the British Museum if they wish to debate me on what I’ve written.

Get in contact.

The dangers of travelling whilst being a Muslim

Travelling & flying is no fun these days if you’re Muslim, and by the time you read this, I may have been raped (not rape rape obviously) by rapists masquerading as airport security.

Whoever said that the journey itself is better then arriving at your destination, obviously wasn’t a Muslim in a post 9/11 world. After all there’s no better place then to see racism (passenger profiling) in action then at your international airport.

I’ve written before about the political machinations that affect Muslims while we try to catch a flight, “Flying While Muslim To Be Made A Crime” and even gave you my eye witness account of the typical occurrences when I flew out to China.

So while I’ve been taking my shoes and socks off, dumping my bottle of water, being felt up by a security perv, being chemically swabbed and having my underpants X-rayed at airports, all the “terrorists” really have to do is to send their “bomb” via post.

There have been many an attempt by the American military industrial complex to manufacture yet another terrorist scare.

Explosive devices that are sent to politicians and actually explode at their intended destinations causing serious injury and damage are under-reported in the media.

Maybe because it’s your cuddly anarchist types that are responsible and not those bushy bearded Muslamic types.

This time round when I’m flying, I may take a more belligerent approach, the 9/11 trump card doesn’t work any more.

Before or during being randomly pulled out of the line, I may well tell my would be rapist;

“Do I get to pick the screener?.. I’ll take that Guy, he has nice firm hands.”

“I feel like I should buy you dinner after this.”

“I feel like I under performed, can we go again?

“I expect a couple phone numbers after this show.”

“Sorry about the funk. The doctor says the Yeast Infection should go away within a few weeks.”

“Your mother does it much better”

“Since you are going to be feeling me up do you mind changing my diaper while you do so?”

“Careful, that’s my colostomy bag”

Or I may do it like it was done in the video above….wonder if that’s an arrestable offence?

But then again, I have the most popular name on this planet by logical rational it must appear on a few lists. I understand how all our names sound the same to whitey & that we all look the same. The last thing I want is to be on a flight to Guantanamo, Baghram or whatever hell hole is being used to torture Muslims these days.

So when my rapist tells me to squeal like a pig I may just have to grudgingly oblige.

After all, us clever Muslims are taught not to get involved with politics by the man at the masajid, (who most of the time happens to be your local councillor) so we either keep our mouths shut and bendover for whitey, or we do something about it.

The Akh is currently away, he may or may not have been raped and is currently working on a plantation, picking bananas & returns sometime in January 2012

Do you remember 27 Ramadan 2004? Do you remember what they did in Fallujah?

No of course you don’t.

But I do.

I’ll never forgive & I’ll never forget.

It was the night of Al Qadr and the Masajid at Regents Park was heaving with Muslims, seeking the night of power, Muslims were seeking Allah.

The Akh was seeking answers.

The terrorists masquerading as the US Army had just launched the disparagingly termed “Operation Fajr”

They declared the city of Fallujah to be a free fire zone, meaning to them there were no civilians in a city with a population of 350,000 each and every single man, women and child was considered fair game.

Fallujah, or “the city of Mosques” as it’s known in Iraq, was being butchered.

Civilians who sought shelter in one of the two hundred plus masajids across Fallujah were hunted down and killed inside places of worship.

The BBC like many of the free British media, on the direct orders of both Blair’s Government and it’s US army commanders, blatantly failed to provide any sort of balanced reporting on the atrocities being committed in Fallujah. The BBC claimed that it saw no evidence of illegal chemical weapons being used by the Americans.

But we knew differently.

We knew this was the first time in modern warfare that White Phosphorus had been used as a thermobaric weapon on a civilian population.

We knew what the long term effects would be.

So when myself and a group of brothers demonstrated in the court yard of Regents Street Masajid, we were painted as the extremists.

The very same BBC who failed to report on Fallujah, were there on hand to brilliantly capture some footage for their own propaganda purposes. (first 40 seconds of above video).

Pathetically, that documentary talks about the usual fantasy’s about extremist Muslims.

Why?

Because we know your agenda of demonstration elections, of bringing “Freedom & Democracy” to our lands.

We have the same access to your academics who plan your foreign policy strategy;

“demonstration elections” are “organised and staged by a foreign power primarily to pacify a restive home population, reassuring it that ongoing interventionary processes are legitimate and appreciated by their foreign objects.”

(Herman and Brodhead Demonstration Elections, South End Press, 1984, p.5)

In the case of Fallujah, it is of course vital that domestic audiences in the US and UK be persuaded that their governments are killing Iraqis with the support of, even on behalf of, Iraqis themselves. The possibility that Iraqis might be dying in their tens of thousands for Western power and profit must, of course, be kept so far out of sight that it is barely even thinkable.

Years later, the truth began to emerge about the full scale of the horrors bought down on the people of Fallujah. I watched the BBC’s “Secret Iraq” documentary with tears rolling down my face.

US General Jack Keane, the chief of the US army admitting what they did was;

“Horrible….to the people of Fallujah….we did so much damage there”

We were out there, because we were fed up.

Our Muslims leaders did nothing.

The Government refused to listen.

We had no other weapon than our tongues to fight against the massacre of Fallujah by British and American forces.

Many Muslims debated over what they saw that night – many Muslims were content in perfecting themselves and doing nothing.

The Government always wants to know what makes Muslims like me agitated, what gets us all riled up?

All it takes is for me to switch on the news, Al Jazeera, Press TV and to a much lesser sense the Government propaganda channels of BBC, SKY & CNN to turn me into an extremist.

I will never forget what you did in Fallujah.

I will never forgive you for what you did in Bosnia & Chechnya.

I will never forgive you for what you continue to do in Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan & Kashmir.
