Published on 3 Apr 2012 | The Bangsa Moro struggle for self-determination is already a struggle of generations. The longest Jihad Combat in Asia and maybe in the whole world, it started in the 16th century and up to now there is no greenlight yet as to when it will end. This it self is a sign of Victory. Other peoples' struggle in the world have either succeeded or been totally crushed. The Moro struggle is still going on. It is an ongoing struggle for survival, cultural identity, the right to self-determination and most of all their religious duty towards their Lord.
Published on 19 Sep 2013 | "My Ummah will divide into seventy-three sects all of which except one will go to the Fire, and they (i.e. the Saved Sect) are those who are upon what I and My Companions are upon" ~ Prophet Muhammad (ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam)
One of the most oft-commented tradition of our Prophet (ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam) that is echoed from the mimbars of every Masjid & the focus point of many conversations of our over-zealous youth. Yet many questions arise. Are the majority of the Ummah misguided?! And is every 'deviation' automatically bound to the Fire of Hell? And which group is the Saved Sect?
Istanbul: The US charge d'affaires in Khartoum, Joseph D Stafford, resigned from his post after he converted to Islam, Sudanese local media sources said.
According to World Bulletin, Stafford told the foreign ministry that his resignation was made for "personal reasons" but Sudanese sources claimed that the envoy was forced to resign after he turned to Islam.
Sources said that Stafford has recorded visits to the headquarters of Ansar al-Sunnah in Sudan and established a close relationship with a number of Sudanese clerics through these visits.
The U.S. State Department has not made any statement to confirm or deny the news on Joseph Stafford.
After his resign, Stafford published an article in the Sudan Tribune and said, "My wife and I have been very fortunate to meet so many wonderful people throughout Sudan who share a strong desire and willingness to improve their communities. We will always remember you and your compelling country, and I know you will continue your hard work for a better life, just as you say daily 'Fi Kulu Harakah Baraka' (Arabic for 'in every move there is a blessing')."
The U.S. has not appointed an ambassador to its embassy in Khartoum since 1998 and has kept its representation there at charge d'affaires despite Sudan's demand that it be upgraded.
