By the middle of the 1970’s, American racial politics had undergone sweeping changes. The strident, urban street protests had given way to a strategy of “working within the system”, allowing movement leaders and activists (those who were not killed or imprisoned) to take full advantage of the hard-fought successes of the previous decade. Many went back to college and qualified themselves to take cushy jobs in academia and government, but there were other reasons for the change in strategy as well. Movement workers witnessed with horror the cold-blooded, ruthless tactics of the government to crush what it called “urban rebellions”. Most illustrious of this type of brutality was the vicious police slaying of Chicago Black Panthers’ Fred Hampton and Mark Clark while they slept. Blackamerican Muslims, like Blacks in general, realized the times were changing and simply sought a new direction.

In changing the site’s design a couple of years ago, I somehow lost one of my important works, the series you are about read here. Published in the winter of 2007 and 2008, many consider it a classic study and its impact at the time unprecedented. I now post it again for those who did not get the opportunity to read it the first time. One important note: Apologies to Al Sharpton and the black radio hosts who we were a bit unkind to in this piece.

On Nov. 16th in Washington, DC, your and my favorite James Brown preacher, the right Reverend Al Sharpton, will be leading a protest demonstration on the steps of the Justice Department to highlight its gross negligence in enforcing the nation’s civil rights laws in a year that has witnessed scores of un-investigated racial incidents. From the Jena 6 trials in Louisiana, to noose sightings in a number of different cities, to the brutal rape, kid-napping and torture of a young, mentally challenged Black women in West Virginia, racism in America is once again rearing its ugly head. Taking the lead in a resurgence of civil rights activism is a tightly-knit coalition of Black radio personalities (Micheal Basden, Warren Ballentine, and Sharpton himself) and church leaders, who’ve been raising public awareness for the past year about these disturbing incidents.

Soup Kitchen at the Muslim Center in Detroit, the Real Message of Islam.

Despite whatever else I may choose to write about on this site, it must be remembered that it began primarily as a forum for Muslims to address the glaring contradictions between what we say we are all about, and the actual reality of our condition. It is indeed sad and heartbreaking for me, a Muslim convert for over a quarter of a century, to see the image and reputation of Islam in America reach such an all time low. Of course we all know the reasons for this sad state of affairs so there is no need to rehearse them all here. Suffice it to say, we have a lot of work to do to regain the footing we once had in the 80’s and 90’s, those wonderful days when our beards were all black and our idealism and hope for the future prospects for Islam in the U.S. shined its brightest. It is mostly for that reason that I launched this blog many years ago now, to correct the mistakes that we made in the zeal of our youth to share this beautiful religion with the people, and to most importantly declare it innocent of the blood cult that lunatics bearing Muslim names had introduced.

Service to Humanity is the Core Message of Islam

In an apparent act of desperation the embattled imam of Green Lane Masjid in Birmingham, England, Abu Usamah At Thahabi, has decided to take to the airwaves in order to respond to (not to be confused with refute) the damning charges of womanizing and sexual harassment launched against him last week by Briton’s Sunday MercuryWhat is most significant about the 9 minute, self-serving diatribe is that at no time does Abu Usamah categorically deny the sexual allegations, though he has no problem refuting another less serious charge. Sadly, his poor, brain-washed followers have been railing against what they call “the lies of the kuffar (disbelieving) press” on a number of different threads and in the comments to this video, never stopping to realize that Abu Usamah himself never said that the story is a lie!

The above response provides a case study in all of the technic of mind control – double-speak, demagoguery, fear and intimidation, conspiracy theory and paranoid fantasies – all of which have been employed by this imam over many, many years and explains how his alleged pattern of abuse has gone unreported . The Muslims of Green Lane have already been mentally programmed to reject any information that doesn’t emanate from a Muslim source, as witnessed by the Undercover Mosque documentary wherein Abu Usamah is heard to declare that “all the kuffar lie”! But even if that paranoid assertion were to be believed, it will not insulate him from the present scandal inasmuch as the Sunday Mercury – the kuffar so to speak – are not the ones making the allegations but are only reiterating and reporting the charges made on a Muslim website, Protectmuslimsisters.com.

Unmanly Coward Predator, Abul Hasan Malik

During this blessed month of Ramadan we have some wonderful news to report: Abul Hasan Malik, the now disgraced and repudiated sexual devient and predator Imam of Philadelphia and Camden, N.J, has quietly snuck out-of-town and has not been heard from since. Word on the street is that he’s gone to Saudi and is working in some type of “teaching” capacity, but it is of course impossible to confirm something like that, especially when dealing with this type of pathological liar.

What is confirmed though is that he is gone, and has been for at least a month or so, and all we can say is “good riddance”! This cowardly individual, who tried to set himself up as some sort of moral leader, wasn’t even man enough to defend his own honor and reputation like any person falsely accused would do. But he and everyone else knew that he was guilty as sin. And now, just like those evil pedophile priests who quietly move on to other parishes to indulge their sickness anew, so has Abul Hasan Malik taken flight without any explanation from either him or the Camden/Phili masjid administrations. What further proof does anyone need of this man’s guilt in this whole sordid affair. What a pathetic clown this guy is. Perhaps now the Salafi community in Philadelphia can begin to get its house in order and pick up the work of dawah again, and work to reform the lives of the people and help them establish the institutions they so desperately need and deserve.

Finally, let me just say this, there were (and are) many critics of the approach that was taken to expose this creep by employing the internet to publicize his perfidy. Inasmuch as the campaign was only an attempt to protect Muslim sisters, and in light of the fact that the masjid administrations, to their eternal shame, did absolutely nothing to address the issue, we felt compelled to take this route. Now that Malik is gone and can no longer prey on Muslim ladies, at least not in Phili or Camden, or even the entire United States for that matter, we now feel safe in saying that the approach we took stands thoroughly vindicated. It sent a powerful message to any future joyriders (thank you unlissted for that name) that if you try to make a plaything of this beautiful religion, or indeed our beautiful Muslim sister, you too will meet the same ignominy.

This rally for Trayvon Martin was organized four ordinary women – Meagan Goffney, Maliaka Mealy, Heather Rasberry, and Yolanda Carr – who put it together in only a week. They expected around 25 people to show up but instead got about 5000! People are furious about this atrocity and judging from the discussions I’ve been having, an arrest better come soon!

UPDATE!!: We have acquired a picture of this creep so that women will know what he looks like when he tries to change his identity and/or pretend he is someone else. Walis should not marry their daughters to this man. He is pure EVIL (as is Dawud Adib)

Well folks, its been quite a while since I’ve written this kind of story on this site, and for good reason, it’s too damn depressing. Over a year ago I had determined to get out of the business of issuing warnings against womanizers in the Muslim community, but in this case, I’ve decided to overturn that decision. This is primarily the result of what I believe to be the sincere efforts of a Muslim woman to protect the sisters in her community in Philadelphia (or anywhere else for that matter) from the sick, perverted, and utterly depraved advances of the creep who goes by the name of Abul Hasan MalikThe long list of depravities attributed to this man by this woman, who goes by the moniker “Taqwa”, would be enough to certify even a common Joe on the street as a pathological sex fiend and maniac if only half of what she asserts is true (she has proof). But what makes this sordid tale so unbelievably sad and disturbing is that Abul Hasan Malik enjoys a certain measure of popularity, if not outright fame, in the black salafi circles as an Imam and lecturer in the cities of both Philadelphia and Camden, N.J! (Read the full story along with evidence against him here)

The sister’s story not withstanding, Abul Hasan Malik is a known entity in Philadelphia who has reportedly engaged in riotous, hotel room orgies involving all manner of debauchery and sin. In fact, the shameful antics of this man follows a long line of other well-known sexual miscreants in that area, like his good friends and partners in crime Dawud Adib (aka Lying David) and Jalil Meekins. Indeed so infamous have all three characters become for their hyper-sexual exploits with Muslim women, that a satirical blog has appeared in recent years which lampoons the trio and calls itself the Dawud Adib Magazine. All three also happen to be popular duat (callers) of the Salafi school of Islam.

And since we’re on the topic of Salafi Imams, one cannot leave off from this discussion the outrageous behavior of another famous name, the Medina graduate Abu Usamah ad Dhahabi, who some years back was let go from the Germantown masjid and literally run out of the city, after it was discovered that he was performing cunnilingus on sisters in his  office and soliciting prostitutes when overseas. To his credit though, he at least had enough shame to salvage whatever was left of his reputation and leave the country, finding a job at a masjid in England which is as yet unaware of his infamy in the states.

The point to be made here is that this town has a long and storied history of this kind of hot mess going on, and it is just as much an indictment of the Muslim communities of Philadelphia as it is of these debased and fraudulent leaders. The pathetic case of Abul Hasan Malik is a perfect example of the community’s failure to govern itself responsibly and protect the people from an unabashed hedonist. Why this man was not already a laughing-stock and a disgrace before these new allegations arose remains the real and troubling question! Nevertheless with that said, what are these new allegations?

No, this is not the run-of-the-mill womanizing that we’ve all grown accustomed to from the black Salafi “leadership”, but actually goes quite a bit further. Abul Hasan Malik stands accused of PREYING ON sisters in the Muslim community by first getting his hands on their marriage applications (and with it their contact info), calling them up under an assumed name, and after a slow process of making friends, lure them into his dark world of kinky, sadistic, and shockingly hedonistic sex. “How shocking” you might ask? Well, let’s just say we’re talking about the utilization of electricity and human excrement, if that makes it any clearer. This is precisely what happened to the accuser, sister “Taqwa”. Sometime in 2008 she received a call out of the blue from a “brother” identifying himself as “Hussein”. “Hussein” claimed to be a graduate student of an Ivy League institution who admitted purloining her phone number form the Germantown masjid administration. Through charm and intelligence, over time, he won her over and a friendship developed with the general understanding that it could possibly lead to marriage. But that was before the weird stuff started happening, like the  instant messages he sent of kinky websites full of every type of perversion and depravity imaginable. The long and short of the story is that Taqwa moved on, and about a year later learned that ” Hussein” was in reality the re-known Salafi Imam Abul Hasan Malik, certainly enough to creep anybody out. She now believes that all he wanted to do was use her to satisfy his perverse sexual appetites, only to cast her off and ultimately disappear. Yes, this is the madness going on in Philadelphia.

Abul Hasan Malik’s behavior displays all the sinister manifestations of a real-life Jekyll and Hyde, for one minute we see Abul Hasan, the stern man of Allah exhorting the believers to piety and eschew evil and wickedness, the next minute we’re presented with “Hussein”, the pathological liar and sex maniac, who attempts to draw Muslim women into his demented, sadomasochistic black dungeon of smut and “golden showers”, after having first won their trust and confidence. It is for this reason that the warning has gone out that Abul Hasan Malik suffers from some very serious psychological problems, the most serious of which is preying on vulnerable sisters through lies and deceit.

The Accuser Comes under Attack

If we are going to be honest here, we must admit up front that the accuser, sister “Taqwa”, did not do everything right, and has herself openly confessed to not being an angel (for of course none of us are). But that does not justify the torrent of abuse she’s been receiving from the blind adherents and cronies of Abul Hasan Malik, who charge that she is nothing more than a woman scorned who is using this affair to extort money from the masjid! On other occasions she’s likened to a ungrateful Muslim who spitefully refuses to put this matter solely in the Hands of Allah, and keep her mouth shut. Or again we’re supposed to believe that this lady is being led astray from the truth, and possibly even her own sanity, by the wiles of her own evil and corrupted desires. And while the accuser has had to endure these vicious assaults on her character, not one responsible party in the Muslim community of Philadelphia has had a damn thing to say publicly about the sociopaths in their mist. It is for this reason that the city continues to live with the ignominious moniker of ” Fitna-delphia”!

To counsel a sister to merely “wait on Allah to handle your affairs” is not only dead wrong, but indeed un-Islamic. In the religion of Islam Muslims are commanded to “enjoin the good and forbid the evil”, firstly with their hands if possible, if not then with their tongues, and weakest of all, at least with their hearts. That is precisely what “Taqwa” did here, for which she should be celebrated for having overcome the embarrassment of her own mis-steps to take a stand to root out the corruption embodied in this man, who fashions himself a teacher and moral leader of the Muslims.

To date, all Abul Hasan Malik has done to respond to this scandal is mount the rostrum and deliver a series of blistering sermons on “back-biting” and scandal mongering, belligerently refusing to acknowledge the wrong he has done, or the fact that he needs to get serious help with his deviant sexual predilections. Not only should this man not be delivering sermons, he should be admitted for treatment because he’s sick.
