QURAN:

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُوا رَبَّكُمْ  إِنَّ زَلْزَلَةَ السَّاعَةِ شَيْءٌ عَظِيمٌ

O mankind! Fear your Lord and be dutiful to Him! Verily, the earthquake of the Hour (of Judgement) is a terrible thing. [22:1]

HADITH:

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “The Hour (Last Day) will not be established until (religious) knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious learned men), earthquakes will be very frequent, time will pass quickly, afflictions will appear, murders will increase and money will overflow amongst you.” [Sahih Bukhari]

FEEDBACK:

KING HEARINGS: I just wanted to drop you this short note to tell you and all of the members of the local Islamic community that I am thoroughly disgusted with the King hearings. Cong. Ellison’s testimony yesterday was most moving–it reminded me of the moment in the Joe McCarthy tragedy when Joseph Welch said to McCarthy: “Have you no decency Senator? Do you want to destroy everyone you can?” And, the King hearings are a modern version of the tragic McCarthy era. In that era there were real Communists who engaged in espionage for the Soviet Union. But it was not the purpose of those hearings to find those real Communists–it was to smear and discredit the other side of the national political divide. The same is true today. Yes, there is a tiny, tiny number of Muslims in the US who give support to terrorism. But stopping this support of terrorism is not, repeat not, the purpose of the King hearings. No, these hearings are a cynical and obvious ploy to gain an advantage in US partisan politics by smearing liberals as being “soft on terrorism” just the way McCarthy sought to smear liberals as “soft on Communism.”  Please tell the local Islamic community that they have many, many non-Muslim friends like me in the area.

THIS NEWSLETTER: I am so proud of the Muslim News Digest. Najiyah Umm Waheeb, Lawrence, KS.

SUCCESSFUL EVENT: By the grace of Allah swt, the hard work & dedication of many volunteers & staff of National Kidney Foundation March 10th celebration of World Kidney Day (as observed by KEEP screening of 79 individuals of varied ethnicities, gender & faiths) proved to be a real success. Indeed all clients were very pleased, satisfied & thankful. Colorful spacious Gym of the Islamic Center of Greater Kansas City, smiling faces of all volunteers & a sunny day was a blessed mix. By all accounts we proved to be efficient & generous hosts-thanks to Allah swt. Please note that this is the very first time that WKD celebration in KC was held in a Faith based facility & largely staffed by the Faith members. It was indeed an honor for Muslim Community. I am humbled to serve as the coordinating Nephrologist. I would welcome any comments, particularly any ideas for improving on what we accomplished especially because I would love for us to plan an annual Community wide Health Fair. Abdul Rauf Mir M.D. Leawood, KS.
