Ballin’! The richest Muslim businessman in the world is the nephew of King Abdullah also known as al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud. If you haven’t heard already, he’s dropping around $2 billion to $6.88 billion to the currently failing American financial organization known as Citi or Citigroup (Citibank). Citi recently reported losses up to and more than $10 billion which shocked Wall Street. With the investments from Prince al-Waleed and others (Kuwaiti and Chinese investors) Citi hopes to cover their losses and improve their status. Oh yeah, the new CEO of Citi was born in Bombay, India: Vikram Pandit.
According to the BBC news, hundreds of militants invaded and captured a Pakistani fort. They killed and captured the Pakistani soldiers and some may have escaped or been set free. I wouldn’t be surprise if America started to aid Pakistan like they aid to Israel. This is worse though. It’s Muslim on Muslim violence. Ever since the creation of Pakistan the whole country has been unstable. It was better when the whole region was one country, in my opinion. Here is the article:
Militants overrun Pakistan fort
Hundreds of militants have overrun a paramilitary fort in north-west Pakistan, killing or kidnapping many troops, the military says.
At least eight soldiers died in the raid and 15 escaped, the army says. The whereabouts of another 25 are unknown. Some reports put the death toll higher.
South Waziristan is a known stronghold of pro-Taleban and al-Qaeda militants.
First it was Keith Ellison, now it might happen to Andre Carson in Indiana. What a surprise that they are both Black Muslims. This just shows the importance the Black Muslim community has on the Muslim American community. So the next time you hear another Muslim being racist (because we all know it happens often), tell them that Black Muslims are trying to bring changes in this country.
May God give success to Andre Carson in Indiana. Ameen!
Keith Ellison and Andre Carson are revolutionaries that should be supported. We should continue to support any brother or sister who is seeking changes in this countries government. May God make them all successful. Ameen!
“I’m an Indy 500 Hoosier. I’m a Covered Bridge Festival Hoosier. I’m a Black Expo Hoosier. I’m a Muslim Hoosier. But I am an American, and I love America,” Carson said, with his wife, Mariama, and 13-month-old daughter, Salimah, at his side.
Fat Joe, famous rapper from the Bronx, NYC, recently gave his salams in a song called “300″. Who cares? Well probably no one (but me). But if you did, you can listen to it here (warning contains music) :
So as most of you know, I started Halal Tube and then Sports Halaqah. I havealso started another site now called Dhikr Tube. Basically my idea behind it is to organize all the Qur’anic Reciation videos on YouTube, Google Video, etc., by reciter. Similar to Halal Tube’s lectures by speaker database.
I need your help. Post comments of reciters, so I can search them and grab all their videos and add them to Dhikr Tube. This is an exclusive post. I’m only advertising Dhikr Tube on my blog. I know it will spread to a lot of people but shockingly, the majority of visitors to Halal Tube and Sports Halaqah do not come to my blog, so they will not know about Dhikr Tube until I publicly release it.
A 50-year-old man has been drafted to go in Iraq. According to his nephew or niece, he receives a stipend from the US Army making him part of the “ready reserve”. Not to sure what that is, but when the US is drafting elderly men that can only mean they are desperate for more soldiers. Which could mean they are not doing so well in Iraq.
As we all know, seen and heard, the Israeli government has been demolishing the homes of Palestinians for new developments for the invading Israelis. Well China is also doing the same to the poor Chinese. What a injust world we live in. May God bring justice to the innocent. Ameen!
