All the Lancashire mosques taking part in ‘Visit My Mosque Day’ To Find Out More About The Islamic Faith

 

The Darussalam Education Centre on Whalley New Road in Blackburn is taking part in the Visit My Mosque project

----

By Shuiab Khan

3rd September 2022

A variety of events have been arranged this weekend (September 3 and 4) for anyone wanting to find out more about the Islamic faith and the role mosques play in the lives of people on a day-to-day basis.

Led by the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), Visit My Mosque aims to promote better outreach and engagement work between mosques and local communities.

A number of mosques in Blackburn, Burnley, Preston and Nelson have announced they will join more than 200 mosques across the UK by hosting the open day events.

Molana Rafiq Sufi, Chair of Lancashire Council of Mosques (LCM) said: “We support the Visit My Mosque initiative each year as it helps people from across our communities can get more understanding of Islam and their Muslim neighbours.

In Burnley people can visit the Ibrahim Masjid, off Elm Street, and the UKIM Madina Masjid, in Manchester Road, Nelson is also taking part.

Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain, Zara Mohammed, said: “Now in its seventh year, Visit My Mosque continues to see Mosques across the UK open their doors to local communities, providing a space in which conversation, understanding and friendship can develop, whilst also helping challenge misconceptions around Islam and Muslims. 

“With such a diverse range of Mosques taking part, each with their own unique story, and history, I am confident this weekend will provide guests of all faiths and none with a fantastic opportunity to connect with local Muslim communities, and gain a deeper sense of who Muslims are, what their sacred spaces mean to them and the positive contributions of Muslim communities to British society.

India Awaits Access To Uzbek Islamic State Bomber Azamov, Questionnaire Sent To Russia

 

Uzbek Islamic State bomber Azamoz. (PTI)

----

By Shishir Gupta

Sep 04, 2022

Indian security agencies have sent a questionnaire to their Russian counterparts, the Federal Security Service (FSB), seeking extensive details about detained Uzbek Islamic State bomber Azamoz even as reports indicate that his associate Kyrgyz national has apparently been killed in Turkey after he abandoned his India mission. The FSB announced the detention of 30-year-old Azamov on August 22, 2022, while discreetly tipping off Indian agencies in late July.

While Indian agencies in touch with their Russian and Uzbek counterparts to gain physical access to Azamov, no forward movement has been recorded till now and the replies to the questionnaire are still awaited. Radicalized online and trained by Islamic State in Turkey, Azamov was tasked to avenge the apparent insult to Prophet by former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma. Another Kyrgyz national was also prepared for the same task via Moscow but the Islamic State terrorist went back to Turkey with latest reports indicating that he was killed.

Although reports from Moscow indicate that Azamov was to be given his Indian contact once he landed in the country, the Indian security agencies are hunting to unearth the radicals of the Islamic State and their handlers in West Asian countries like Turkey, Qatar, and Kuwait. The Islamic State espouses Wahabbi Islam and is opposed to Deobandi Taliban and Salafi Al Qaida terrorist groups. Since 2014, the Islamic State is competing with Al Qaida and Taliban to become the global leader of religious extremism.

The situation becomes more complex in West Asia with the presence of the powerful Muslim Brotherhood, which has an international media channel in its support, and has support groups in various parts of the country including India. The spotlight on Nupur Sharma was brought by the Muslim Brotherhood-dominated countries of Qatar, Kuwait, and Turkey with help of their Indian affiliates. Countries like Saudi Arabia and UAE have banned the Brotherhood, which is the key sponsor of terror against Israel through the Hamas group.

After the remarks by Nupur Sharma, the Indian security agencies have activated their networks to pick up any terror attack planning or plans to target any Indian VVIP. It is in this context that the questioning of Azamov by Indian agencies is critical to spotlight on Islamic State network and overground supporters in India.

Inspiration From Prophet Muhammad’s (Pbuh) Household Key to Islamic Republic’s Resilience

 

Inspiration From Ahl al-Bayt Key to Islamic Republic’s Resilience

-----

September 03, 2022

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei highlighted the inspiration coming from Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) Household as the key to the resilience of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

“Those sparkling stars taught us with their theoretical knowledge and practical conduct how to move on the course of dear Islam by being resourceful and acting on the Quran,” he said in an address to a meeting of the Ahl al-Bayt World Assembly on Saturday, Leader.ir reported.

He described the teachings of Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) Household as a complete collection of what individuals and communities need, stressing that Muslim societies are in serious need of Ahl al-Bayt knowledge today.

“The world assembly needs to fulfill this heavy duty [of disseminating Ahl-al-Bayt knowledge] by careful and proper planning and use of reasonable methods and influential means,” he said.

The Leader then pointed to the Islamic Republic’s raised flag in opposition to arrogance, saying the followers of Ahl al-Bayt and world Shias are proud to see an Islamic government resisting domineering powers and foiling many of their plots.

The Islamic Republic’s flag is one of justice and spirituality, according to Ayatollah Khamenei, and it is natural for it to face hostility by hegemonic powers, including the United States on top of the global arrogance front, whose beliefs and practices are rooted in the material world, money and force.

Encouraging other countries to stand up to bullying is among other reasons for the anger and hostility of domineering powers, he said.

Thwarting the US criminal schemes in various countries, such as the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group, have triggered them to start campaigns of promoting anti-Iran and anti-Shia sentiment and to accuse Iran of interfering in other countries’ affairs, the Leader noted.

He stressed that Iran does not interfere in the affairs of other countries and such allegations by hegemons stem from their desperation and inability to prevent the progress of the Islamic Republic.

Ayatollah Khamenei later said the Muslim world is able to force the global arrogance back given its spiritual and material capacities.

Islamic teachings, reliance on God, a hopeful outlook and the concept of savior are among spiritual benefits of the Muslim world, he said, while natural material capacities for progress are also abundant in Islamic lands, an example of which is oil and gas whose importance has become globally known today.

The Leader later emphasized that the establishment of the Ahl al-Bayt assembly was not aimed at opposition and enmity with non-Shias and the group has always cooperated with non-Shia groups who move on the right track.

“We have always invited all Muslim countries to disregard issues such as ‘Shia and Sunni’, ‘Arab and non-Arab’, and other such divisions, and to act based on the principles [of Islam],” he said.

Inspired by the Quran, The late Founder of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini, taught everyone to put all unreal divisions among Islamic communities aside and recognize only one dividing line between the Muslim world and the world of disbelief and arrogance, the Leader said.

“The present policy of the arrogance is highlighting differences and unreal divisions in the Muslim world,” he said, calling for vigilance against US plots for warmongering between Muslim groups.

Based on the same approach, Ayatollah Khamenei said, the Islamic Republic placed the issue of Palestine on top of its agenda from the first day and continues to sticks with the same policy today.

Ukraine nuclear plant loses power line, Moscow makes Europe sweat over gas

By Tom Balmforth

September 4, 2022

KYIV, Sept 4 (Reuters) - A nuclear power plant on the front line of the Ukraine war again lost external power, U.N. inspectors said on Saturday, fuelling fears of disaster while Moscow kept its main gas pipeline to Germany shut to hurt economies of Kyiv's friends in the West.

The Zaporizhzhia plant, Europe's largest, had its last remaining main external power line cut off, although a reserve line continued supplying electricity to the grid, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said. read more

UK ministers consider new law to 'wreck' indyref campaign

By Alan Young

3rd September 2022

The Sunday Times reports that the UK government is planning to act in the event that the Supreme Court rules later this year that SNP plans to stage indyref2 without UK consent are unlawful.

The newspaper said the plan would require evidence for more than a year that at least 60 per cent of voters want a new referendum on independence before the UK Government would even consider it.

UP government set to give infrastructure push to Muslim-dominated areas and blocks

Sep 4, 2022

LUCKNOW: Be it the impact of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call for Pasmanda (dalit and backward) Muslim outreach or the Yogi Adityanath government's reworked strategy, the state government has identified Muslim-dominated areas and blocks to focus on infrastructure development.

As the BJP as well as CM Yogi Adityanath are torchbearers of Hindutva, the focus on minority-dominated areas for infrastructure development is being seen as a major shift in the party's strategy.

Palestinian rights activists show why the Muslim world’s struggle for justice is best served by non-violence

Chandra Muzaffar

4 Sep, 2022

Islam’s deep affinity for peace is perhaps best illustrated by the fact that the word “Islam” implies peace through engaged surrender to God, to the Divine Will.

There are a number of passages in the Koran that demonstrate its commitment to peace, especially the peaceful resolution of disputes. The Prophet Mohammed’s life and struggle also offer numerous instances of his inclination towards peace. It is well known that he even delayed the conquest of Mecca, much to the chagrin of his followers, to minimise violence and bloodshed.

A radical decentralisation of politics and decision-making in Iran is needed to allow Kurdish communities to benefit from natural resources, experts have argued.

But since mid-2021, global commodity prices, especially of oil, have begun to rise. This was intensified by the Russian invasion of Ukraine in March.
