Muhammed Sbihi Britain’s first Muslim Olympic rower solves Ramadan dilemma

Muhammed Sbihi – Britain’s first Muslim Olympic Rower

Muhammed Sbihi, Britain’s first Muslim Olympic rower has solved the Ramadan fasting dilemma for athletes, instead of fasting during the Olympic games he’ll pay for the meals for 1,800 people in his native Morocco as recompense.

When Muhammed Sbihi was picked for the GB rowing Olympic squad he faced a dilemma, how to marry his faith and to practice the month of Ramadan, where one must abstain from food and drink during the daylight hours and the demands it would have on him as a athlete in a once in a lifetime opportunity?

Willing to find another solution, he then heard about Moroccan goalkeeper Badou Zaki, who though a Muslim never fasted during his time at Real Mallorca in Spain’s La Liga. Instead, he would go to Morocco each year to pay for thousands of meals for the poor.

A cousin in Tangiers, the home town of Muhammed’s father, consulted scholars to come up with the final answer. Muhammed would follow the example of Ezzaiki and provide 60 meals for the poor for each day he misses the fast.

So this summer, up to 1,800 people in Morocco will eat a meal thanks to a 6ft 8in rower chasing a gold medal in the UK.

Islam is a religion of ease, Allah SWT knows the limitations of his creation. Allah, in the Quran, declares that religious morality is easy and that He will make things easier for those who follow their religion:

“He has chosen you and has not laid upon you in religion any hardship”
(Surah Al Hajj: 78)

“We will ease you to the Easy Way”
(Surah A’la: 8)

So well done to brother Muhammed Sbihi, looking forward to seeing you bring home the gold medal, Insh’Allah.

Co-opting Dissent: The Muslim Leadership Council & The Relaunched All Party Parliamentary Group on Islamophobia

What do the ‘Dem-Cons’ government do when they need approval from a representative Muslim body?

Easy, they create the Muslim Leadership Council, handpicking who gets to be on the body itself.

Paul Goodman over at CONservative home seems to think every single Muslim involved in the scheme is a closet Islamist.

The interesting fight of course is between the Conservative heavyweights (in every sense of the word).

In one corner we have Eric ‘chicken tikka masala’ Pickles

In the other corner we have Saeeda ‘every muslim apart from me is an extremist kaffir’ Warsi

What they are wrestling for (disgusting image if you think about it) is the soul of the Conservative right wing.

Muslims, like always, are smack bang in the middle of it all.

Last year, An All Party Parliamentary Group on Islamophobia was formed, the secretariat of which was ENGAGE.

Zionist MP’s from across the board were spurred into action by their masters to remove Engage from their position as secretariat to the APPG on Islamophobia, and as ever, they succeeded in doing so.

Now you know the background, you’ll be able to follow my logic.

The government and it’s zionist cadre, always need a Muslim partner to act as a yes man and rubber stamp it’s actions.

Ostensibly this was the MCB (Muslim Council of Britain’s) job for many years, until Daud Abdullah decided he could no longer tolerate British political support for Israel after 2010’s ‘Cast Lead’ attack on Gaza.

He was savagedly attacked in the media for saying what the majority of the muslims in the UK think.

Since then, the MCB & MINAB and a whole bunch of Muslim Acronym groups have been given the cold shoulder.

Other government created fronts like the The Sufi Muslim Council were brilliantly exposed.

So it left the government and it’s zionist sponsored schemes for Muslims in disarray, without a Muslim yes man, how can we play our RAND created moderate V extremist, divide and rule policy?

Step up the Muslim Leadership Council.

It’s very important to understand how good the system is at co-opting dissenting voices and that most discussions within the media are often the first step for the issue to be reabsorbed into ‘the system’, investigated or committee’d to death & out of consciousness.

As I was ready to publish this, news got to me that the APPG on Islamophobia, as written about above, had been relaunched within Westminster.

Dr. Chris Allen (The Key Trends Of Islamophobia & Anti-Muslim Hate Crime) is someone who’s work I recognise in fighting Islamophobia and helping shaping policy to eradicate it.

However, even Dr. Allen wasn’t immune to being co-opted into the system, when his “Independent report to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Islamophobia” was inadvertently used to remove Engage from it’s role as secretary.

As it was put to Dr. Allen, you can write intellectually impressive analyses of the subtle nuances of the meaning contained in the term Islamophobia, but when it comes to making basic political judgements in response to the actual operation of anti-Muslim bigotry in the real world, you clearly don’t have a fucking clue.

The relaunch of the group now has Khalid Mahmood MP (Labour) as co-chair.

For anyone who doesn’t know about Khalid Mahmood, he’s an absolute waste of space career politician. He’s never raised the issue of Islamophobia, he voted for the Iraq war, he’s refused to condemn Israel on several occasions and to show what a great Muslim he is, he had an affair with Elaina Cohen and claimed the hotel he used for his sleazy rendezvous on his expenses….so he isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed either.

By appointing someone like Khalid Mahmood, the system has the element of control it requires and will use the token Muslim face to once again act as gate keeper and block any dissenting opinion from the Muslim community, one that Khalid Mahmood has been doing successfully in Birmingham for many a year, and one he will get to replicate at the highest level possible.

No Muslim political group or lobby (and by political I mean in the sense of defending the rights of Muslims in the UK and worldwide, yes chaps it’s foreign policy) can be created by the government.

This political group can only be created and funded by almost 3 million Muslims in the UK.

The vision, aims, strategy and tactics have to be developed by us.

The ownership has to be ours.

Sadly we hear of the 99% and the 1% all too often.

Of the 3 million Muslims in the UK, I’d say that not even 1% are defending the Muslims and the Ummah – getting politically active – to change the betterment of mankind.

Government created means government owned.

Stop funding the building of new glass chandeliers and marble floors in your Masajid, it is not a priority.

Creating the 800lb gorilla that fights politically for the rights of Muslims in the UK, (ultimately the actions taken by the politicians in the UK that effect Muslims the world over) HAS to become our number one priority.

Are you with me?

Why the Muslims will fail Babar Ahmad

Free Babar Ahmad!…but can Muslims be bothered?

The Israeli’s & “The West” as a whole have a policy of leaving no man behind enemy lines, it was proved with the recent Gilad Shalit case, but Muslims don’t really care about their political prisoners who are rotting in the belly of the beast and the Babar Ahmad case may just sadly prove it.

Just to remind you again, why your small contribution of a signature for the petition is so important. Babar Ahmad was arrested in 2003, without charge and was tortured during and since his arrest. All that is being asked for is a fair trial in the UK – a basic human right which has been denied for so many years.

The yankees have requested extradition for his apparent support of ‘terrorism’. If successful, his extradition would set a precedent, meaning the yanks can shout terrorism at anyone in the UK & our government would happily hand them over to be tried in a kangaroo court. This of course could happen to anyone, a blogger like me, or perhaps even you reading this at home.

It’s not a ‘Muslim Only’ issue, Gary McKinnon is up on extradition charges, wanted by the Yanks for apparently hacking their defence network. Most “Security” laws passed since 2001 have been done so because they go against the ‘Evil’ Muslims and are passed without much uproar from the general population.

That is until those very same laws passed against the pesky muslims are used against Dave & Gary, the good ol’ English boys.

Truth is, I know how difficult it is to get Muslims to sign a petition, believe me I’ve done it for years. Even when the government wanted to pass the 42 day internment detention for Muslims, you could get hardly any muslims to sign up to voice their opposition against it. Of course these are the same Muslims who would cry when their communities are targeted by Five-O.

3 Million Muslims in the UK

100,000 signatures needed

3.333% of Muslims needed to sign the petition

As of today 42,000 people have signed

Thats less than 1.5% of Muslims in the UK.

That is shameful.

The brother Shahid has put in effort to give you the Islamic justifications (like you needed it) as to why you should sign the petition.

Play your part in helping Babar Ahmad reach his first step towards justice – sign and share the petition.

Is child abuse in Muslim Madrassas rampant? The BBC think so

A scathing BBC report tonight will document over 400 cases of reported child abuse in Madrassas through the UK.

I’m not sure if any of these pop-up madrassas have any rules & guidelines to abide by, in terms of structural governance & best practice guidelines, not curriculum.

Do they even bother vetting staff with background CRB checks?

It’s not just the Nazi Pope & his minions who have a problem with paedophile child abuse.

Unless we want to see the name of Islam dragged through the mud – like that’ll ever happen – then parents, demand some good governance, being hit with a stick, or being forced into the “murga” (chicken) position has to be outlawed.

There’s plenty of time for Muslims to be forced into stress positions à la Guantanamo, so leave the kids alone.

I don’t think most kids have the mental capacity after being at school all day to do an extra two hours on their Islamic study/Quran. Then again I know of plenty of parents who view it as an extra drop off facility for their kids.

Personally, I tend not to believe the propaganda that comes out of the pro zionist beeb these days, I don’t know enough about the show’s presenter Fran Abrams to make a call, but when I’ve done a bit of digging in the past, I’ve found that BBC Panorama’s Jane Corbin’s husband tuned out to be John Cradock Maples, former MP & President of the Conservative Friends of Israel.

Ramadan Kareem to all of you!

Ramadan Mubarak to you and your families, The Akh hopes that Allah Az’Wajjal accepts your Saum (fasting), Ibadat (acts of worship) and Duah’s (prayers).

Alhumdullilah, in the UK we all have started Ramadan together, whether we have Eid together of course is another question. That’s mainly thanks to the taxi mafia goon squads that own our masajids (see last post).

Just like last Ramadan, I’ll be posting up a breakdown of every Ajiza/Juz section of the Quran on a daily basis. While it’s good to stand for salaat tarweh, it’s just as important that for all of us for whom Arabic is not our first language, to understand what is being recited. Insh’Allah the first Juz goes up tonight.

The Akh received an email a month ago which I’ll post in it’s entirety below, let’s see if the calculations prove to be correct:

Assalaamu Alaykum W W
