HADHRAT MAHDI’S APPEARANCE —THEORIES AND SPECULATION

Question
Mufti Abu Lubaabah Shah Mansur says in his kitaab, Dajjaaliyat, on the basis of the manuscripts of Hadhrat Daanyaal (Alayhis salaam) that a state of the Yahudis will be established and 50 years thereafter Hadhrat Mahdi (Alayhis salaam) will appear. Although the foundations of Israel were structured in 1946/47 it was only in 1973 that the United Nations had accorded recognition to it as a state. On this basis, 50 years will be completed in 2023. Therefore, it is possible that Hadhrat Mahdi’s appearance will be in 2024. Other theories have also been advanced by the Mufti for his conclusion.

Dajjāl: The Great Deceiver

Signs of the Last Day (Ashrā al-Sāʿah)

The Dajjāl

The actual title given to the Dajjāl is al-Masīḥ al-DajjālAl-Masīḥ means Messiah; and the particularisation is due to there being two Messiahs, one of guidance (ʿĪsa (ʿalayhi al-Salām)) and one of misguidance (the Dajjāl).[1] Al-Dajjāl means the Great Deceiver.[2]

The Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) told us that, “No tribulation on the face of the earth since Allāh created Ādam’s (ʿalayhi al-Salām) progeny will be greater than the trial of the Dajjāl. Every Prophet Allāh sent warned his people against the Dajjāl.”[3]

And he (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) said, “Between the creation of Ādam (ʿalayhi al-Salām) and the coming of the Last Hour, there will arise no creation that is more dangerous than the Dajjāl.”[4]

There are a number of events that will occur leading up to the appearance of the Dajjāl:

1) The Conquest of Constantinople (this refers to the 2nd conquest of Constantinople).[5]

Allāh’s Messenger (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) is reported to have said,

“The flourishing of Jerusalem will mark the (beginnings of the) desertion of Yathrib (Madīnah). The desertion of Yathrib will mark the start of the Great War.[6] The start of the Great War will mark the conquest of Constantinople. The conquest of Constantinople will mark the appearance of the Dajjāl.”[7]

The Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) said, “The Great Battle, the conquest of Constantinople, and the appearance of the Dajjāl will occur within (a period of) seven months.”[8]

2) The Lake of Tiberius (Sea of Galilee) will dry up.[9]

3) The Arab population will have decreased.[10]

4) Religion itself will be questioned, its adherents will be few and there will be a loss of knowledge.[11]

5) “The Dajjāl will not come until a time when people have forgotten about him and the Imāms no longer mention him on the minbars.”[12]

6) Thirty false dajjāls will already have made a claim to Prophethood. The Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) said,

“The Hour will not come until thirty dajjāls have appeared, all of them claiming to be a Prophet of Allāh,”[13] another narration has, “all of them lying against Allāh and His Messenger.”[14]

7) Trials that will afflict mankind such that during them a man will awake a believer but become a disbeliever by the evening. People will eventually end up in one of two camps: the camp of faith which will contain no hypocrisy, and the camp of hypocrisy which will contain no faith. “When that happens,” the Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) said, “expect the Dajjāl that day or the next.”[15]

8) Before his coming there will be drought and famine for three years. In the first year, one third of rain will be withheld and the earth will not produce one third of its produce. In the second year, two-thirds of rain will be withheld and two-thirds of the earth’s produce. In the third year all rain will be withheld and the earth will grow no produce. During these times, in place of food and drink, takbīrtaḥmīd and tasbīḥ will suffice the believers.[16]

Description:

In order to fully caution us against him, the Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) described the Dajjāl in some detail so that his ummah might recognise him by his appearance when he arrives.

Ibn ʿUmar said, ‘The Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) stood up to address the people. He praised Allāh as He deserved to be praised, then he spoke about the Dajjāl saying, “I warn you against him; there is no Prophet who has not warned his people against him, even Nūḥ (ʿalayhi al-Salām) did so. But I will tell you something which no other Prophet has told his people. You must know that the Dajjāl is one-eyed, and Allāh is not one-eyed.”[17]

The Dajjāl is one eyed;[18] he will be blind in the right eye which will be like a floating grape,[19] neither protruding nor sunken.[20] The left eye will also be impaired, partially covered with a piece of flesh protruding from the inner part of the eye.[21] One of his eyes will have a greenish tinge, as if it were a piece of glass.[22]

He will have the word kāfir (kāf fa ra) written on his forehead[23] which only the believers will be able to read,[24] be they literate or illiterate.[25]

This writing will be real, and the fact that some will see it while others will not, and that illiterate people will be able to read it is not problematic.

“This is because Allāh causes people to understand something when looking at it, as He wills and when He wills. So the believer will see with his insight, even if he is illiterate, and the non-Muslim will not be able to see it, even if he is literate. By the same token, the believer will see with his insight evidence that the non-Muslim will not see. Allāh will enable the believer to understand without him being literate, because at that time, extraordinary things will be happening.”[26]

He will be stocky and short,[27] fleshy and light-skinned,[28] with coarse and curly hair[29] that is plaited[30] and resembles branches of trees.[31] He will be relatively young,[32] with a broad upper chest,[33] a hairy body,[34] and a shiny and wide forehead.[35] He will be slightly hunched,[36] pigeon-toed[37] and sterile with no children.[38] Amongst the people who resembled him most was Ibn Qaṭan, a man from the tribe of Khuzāʿa who had passed away in the Days of Jāhiliyyah.[39]

By all accounts, the Dajjāl will not be pleasant to behold, but he will do seemingly miraculous deeds that will fool people into believing in him, and he will, perhaps, play on people’s sympathies.

He will come from the lands of the east,[40] from Khurasān,[41] at a time when the Muslims are split in groups and differing amongst one other.[42] To be more precise, he will come from a place called Yahūdiyyah in Asbahān,[43] a province of Khurasān, and with him will be seventy thousand Jews.[44] Also accompanying him are devils who will speak to people.[45]

He will first claim to be a Prophet, and then later claim to be Allāh,[46] asking, “Am I not your Lord? Do I not give life and death?”[47] He will kill some people and it will seem to others that he brings them back to life and he will ask, “Who but your Lord can do this?”[48] But the Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) remarked, “You must know that no one will be able to see his Lord until he dies.”[49] He (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) further said,

“Whoever responds to him by saying, ‘You are not our Lord! Our Lord is Allāh, and it is upon Him that we trust and to Him we turn in penitence. We take refuge in Him from shirk!’ Then he will have no authority over such as person.”[50]

He will bring with him something which will resemble Paradise and Hell; but what he calls Paradise will in fact be Hell, and what he calls Hell will in fact be Paradise.[51] “He will have two flowing rivers: one will appear to be pure water, and the other will appear to be flaming fire. Whosoever lives to see that, let him choose the river which seems to be fire, then let him close his eyes, lower his head and drink from it, for it will be cool, sweet water.”[52] This is the essence of his fitna: making falsehood look like truth and truth like falsehood, putting people to trial in their very faith.

Upon his order, the sky will bring down rain, and the earth will produce crops for those who believe in him. Their animals will graze on the land and return to them in the evening with large udders full of milk and their flanks stretched and full. He will leave those who refuse to believe in him alone without coercing them, but when they wake up in the morning they will find that they are penniless, and all their properties have been destroyed.[53] All those who do not follow him will be put to trial and endure great difficulty.[54]

He will pass by wastelands and say, ‘Bring forth your treasures,’ and its treasures will follow him like swarms of bees.[55] He will have mountains of bread and meat and water, and those who follow him will eat freely of it.[56] He will call a young man, strike him with a sword and cut him in two, then place the two pieces apart the distance of an archer from his target. Then he will call out to him, and the young man will come forward smiling, with his face shining.[57]

One time, he will approach a Bedouin whose parents have passed away and will ask him, ‘Will you believe that I am your Lord if I bring your parents back to life?’ The Bedouin will reply, ‘Yes.’ The devils that accompany the Dajjāl will assume the appearance of his parents and say to the Bedouin, ‘Son! Believe in him and follow him, he is your Lord.’ The Bedouin will thus be deceived into believing in the Dajjāl.[58]

Other narrations mention him curing the blind and healing the leper.[59]

As a result, he will attract a large, dedicated following.[60] He will be followed by seventy thousand Jews from Aṣbahān wearing heavy striped garments or turbans.[61] He will go down to Khūz (lands east of Iran) and Kerman (a region in Iran) with seventy thousand (soldiers) whose faces look like flat beaten iron (like shields).[62] And he will lure women to him.[63] The Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) told us that the Dajjāl will make a stop at a place called Marriqanāh (near Taif, Saudi Arabia). On hearing about his arrival, most of those who go to him will be women, to the point that the men will be forced to tie their mothers, daughters and sisters down to prevent them going to him.[64]

He will travel all over the world, spreading mischief left and right, like a cloud driven by wind,[65] but he will be unable to enter Makkah and Madīnah because it is protected by Angels surrounding them.[66] Madīnah, in particular, will have seven gates at that time, each one protected by two Angels and the fear of him will not enter it,[67] unlike all other places.[68] He will attempt to enter Madīnah but will be unable to do so, and will instead camp at a swamp nearby,[69] behind Uḥud.[70] Madīnah will be shaken by three earthquakes, and after each one there will be an exodus of disbelievers and hypocrites to the Dajjāl.[71] In this way Madīnah will become purified from filth.[72]

While camped there, one of the believers will go out to him, described by the Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) as “the best of people.”[73] The Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) said, “On hearing about the Dajjāl, a true believer will head towards him. However, on the way, he will be stopped by Dajjāl’s soldiers and asked where he is intending to go. Replying that he is going to meet the person who claims that he is Allāh, the soldiers doubtingly ask, ‘Do you not believe in our Lord?’ He will reply, ‘There is nothing hidden about our Lord, Allāh, so how can I take Dajjāl as my Lord?’ Angry at his reply, they decide to kill him. But all of a sudden, one of them will say, ‘Hasn’t our Lord prohibited us from killing anyone without his permission’ Thus, they will take him to the Dajjāl. On seeing the Dajjāl, the believer will shout, ‘People! This is the Dajjāl that the Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) mentioned and warned the believers against!’ The Dajjāl will give an order for him to be killed. He will be placed on his belly and tortured, then he will be asked, ‘Do you still not believe in him’ ‘No! You are the lying Dajjāl!’ he will reply. The believer will then be cut into two pieces and the Dajjāl will walk in between the two pieces and address him, ‘Stand up.’ The believer will come back to life and stand up in one piece. Yet again, he will be asked, ‘Do you now believe in me?’ He will reply, ‘This has only added to my certainty concerning you that you are really the Dajjāl.’ The believer will then proclaim, ‘People, he will not be able to do anything to any man after me.’ The Dajjāl, angry at his refusal, will grab hold of him and place a knife on his throat to slaughter him, but he will be unable to because Allāh will have put copper in that area which the knife will not be able to penetrate. The Dajjāl will grab hold of his hands and legs and throw him into the fire. However, the fire will turn into a pleasant garden for him. This person will be the greatest martyr in the eyes of Allāh and achieve the highest position due to his first death, which was caused by severance of the body in two pieces.”[74]

Eventually the Angels (protecting Madīnah) will direct his attention to Syria and he will march there, and there will he perish.[75]

In addition, although his dominion will reach everywhere, he will also be unable to enter Masjid al-Ṭūr and Masjid al-Aqṣā.[76]

He will remain on earth for forty days: one day like a year, one day like a month, one day like a week, and the remaining days like normal days.[77] The Companions asked, ‘Messenger of Allāh (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam), for the day which is like a year, will one day’s prayers be sufficient?’ He replied, “No, you must estimate the time and observe the (regular daily) prayers.”[78]

He, with his forces, will fight the Muslims and the Muslims will not be able to defeat him. Instead they themselves will be facing defeat. Those who will fight him most ferociously will be the Banū Tamīm of the Arabs.[79]

By then, some people will have fled to the mountains.[80] Some Muslims will have fled to Jabal al-Dukhān in Syria and the Dajjāl will go there and lay siege to them, forcing them to endure extreme difficulty.[81]

Then, at one such battle, while the Muslim armies, at that time in Syria, are preparing to face him, ʿIsā (ʿalayhi al-Salām) will return to earth just before Fajr time.[82]

He will ask those besieged, “Why aren’t you fighting this filthy liar?” They will reply, ‘This person is no less than a jinn!’[83]

After they have prayed Fajr, the Muslims will go out to face him;[84] this will be the final battle fought between them and the armies of the Dajjāl. The very fragrance of the breath of ʿĪsā (ʿalayhi al-Salām) will kill any disbeliever it reaches, and it will extend as far as the eye can see.[85] The battle will be so fierce that forces of the Dajjāl will flee and hide behind boulders and trees, but those boulders and trees themselves will cry out, ‘Muslims, there is a Jew (that allied with Dajjāl) behind me, come kill him!’[86] except for the Gharqad tree because that is their tree.[87]

As soon as the Dajjāl sees ʿĪsa (ʿalayhi al-Salām), he will start to dissolve just like salt dissolves in water and run away. ʿĪsā (ʿalayhi al-Salām) will pursue him and kill the Dajjāl with his lance at the gate of a place called Ludd (near Tel Aviv, in today’s Israel).[88] He will show the blood on his lance to those around him,[89] proving conclusively that he was just a human being and in no way divine.

The appearance of the Dajjāl is one of a group of signs which, once they occur, a person’s accepting true faith will no longer be of any benefit. Allāh’s Messenger (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) said,

“Once three signs occur, the soul will not benefit from believing if it did not believe before: the Dajjāl, the Dābba (the Beast), and the sun rising from the West.”[90]

Protection against Dajjāl

The Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) also taught us how to protect ourselves against the Dajjāl. A summary follows:

1 – Sticking firmly to Islām, learning the correct creed, and thereby seeing through his falsehood just as the best of martyrs did.

2 – Seeking refuge with Allāh against the fitna of the Dajjāl, especially in the prayer.

3 – Memorising the first ten verses of Sūrah al-Kahf, “he will be saved from the fitna of the Dajjāl,”[91] and some narrations mention last ten verses.[92]

4 – Fleeing from him, and best of all: residing in Makkah and Madīnah.

“Whoever hears about the Dajjāl should stay well clear. By Allāh a person can come to him thinking he is a believer, then be so confused by the doubts he brings that he will end up following him.”[93]

Ḥadīth of Tamīm al-Dārī

One time the Messenger of Allāh (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) asked the people to gather, after leading them in prayer, he turned to them and asked,

“Do you know why I had asked you to assemble? They said: Allāh and His Messenger know best. He said: By Allāh. I have not made you assemble for exhortation or for a warning, but I have detained you here, for Tamim Dari, a Christian, who came and accepted Islām, told me something, which agrees with what I was telling you about the Dajjāl. He narrated to me that he had sailed in a ship along with thirty men of Banī Lakhm and Banī Judham and had been tossed by waves in the ocean for a month. Then these (waves) took them (near) the land within the ocean (island) at the time of sunset. They sat in a small side-boat and entered that island. There was a beast with long thick hair (and because of these) they could not distinguish his face from his back. They said: Woe to you, who can you be? Thereupon it said: I am al-Jassasa. They said: What is al-Jassasa? And it said: O people, go to this person in the monastery as he is very much eager to know about you. He (the narrator) said: When it named a person for us we were afraid of it lest it should be a devil. Then we hurriedly went on until we came to that monastery and found a well-built person there with his hands tied to his neck and having iron shackles between his two legs up to the ankles. We said: Woe be upon thee, who are you? And he said: You would soon come to know about me. But tell me who are you? We said: We are people from Arabia and we embarked upon a boat but the sea-waves had been driving us for one month and they brought as near this island. We got into the side-boats and entered this island and here a beast met us with profusely thick hair and because of the thickness of his hair his face could not be distinguished from his back. We said: Woe be to thee, who are you? It said: I am al- Jassasa. We said: What is al-Jassasa? And it said: Go to this very person in the monastery for he is eagerly waiting for you to know about you. So we came to you in hot haste fearing that that might be the Devil. He (that chained person) said: Tell me about the date-palm trees of Baisan. We said: About what aspect of theirs do you seek information? He said: I ask you whether these trees bear fruit or not. We said: Yes. Thereupon, he said: I think these would not bear fruits. He said: Inform me about the lake of Tabariyya. We said: Which aspect of it do you want to know? He said: Is there water in it? They said: There is abundance of water in it. Thereupon he said: I think it would soon become dry. He again said: Inform me about the spring of Zughar. They said: Which aspect of it you want to know? He (the chained person) said: Is there water in it and does it irrigate (the land)? We said to him: Yes, there is abundance of water in it and the inhabitants (of Madīnah) irrigate (land) with the help of it. He said: Inform me about the unlettered Prophet; what has he done? We said: He has come out from Makkah and has settled in Yathrib (Mādinah). He said: Do the Arabs fight against him? We said: Yes. He said: How did he deal with them? We informed him that he had overcome those in his neighbourhood and they had submitted themselves before him. Thereupon he said to us: Has it actually happened? We said: Yes. Thereupon he said: If it is so that is better for them that they should show obedience to him. I am going to tell you about myself. I am Dajjāl and I will soon be permitted to get out and so I shall get out and travel in the land, and will not spare any town where I would not stay for forty nights except Makkah and Madīnah as these two (places) are prohibited (areas) for me and I will not make an attempt to enter any one of these two. An angel with a sword in his hand will confront me and will bar my way and there will be angels to guard every passage leading to it.”

It is then that Allāh’s Messenger (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam), striking the pulpit with the help of the end of his staff, said: This implies Taiba meaning Madīnah. Have I not told you an account (of the Dajjāl) like this? The people said: Yes. To which the Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) said,

‘This account narrated by Tamim Dari was liked by me for it corroborates the account which I gave to you in regard to him (Dajjāl) at Madīnah and Makkah. Behold he (Dajjāl) is in the Syrian sea (Mediterranean) or the Yemen sea (Arabian sea). Nay, on the contrary, he is in the east, he is in the east, he is in the east’ and he pointed with his hand towards the east.[94]

COVID-19 VACCINE: DAJJAL’S HEAVEN OR HELL?

 *COVID-19 VACCINE: DAJJAL’S HEAVEN OR HELL?*

BY
_MAULANA KHALID DHORAT_

🎯 The year 2020 is a year of uncertainty, and everyone is justly anxious: *“What’s going to happen in the future?,” ”Is everything we’re hearing through the grapevine about the future New World Order, true?,”* “Are the stats on the Covid deaths true or greatly exaggerated?,” and “Is this a true pandemic, or a fake plandemic to justify the curtailment of some of our future freedoms, and to force vaccinate the entire population?.”

🍉 Everyone has a theory on Covid-19, but what started out to be a *“three week lockdown” in order to “decisively overcome the pandemic”, has now turned to nine months, with talk of a potential second or third wave*. The mainstream media, in cahoots with governments all over the world, have worked lockstep to create *mass hysteria* to the point that many people have died of suicide and depression, rather than a physical virus infecting them. Lockdowns were advised based on the expert opinion of the World Health Organization (WHO), which turned out to be a *huge catastrophe*. As we now stand, thousands of *authentic doctors the world over (independent doctors, not those pushing the confirmed Dajjali WHO agenda) have confirmed that the recovery rate from Covid-19 is 99.2%,* with the elderly and those having co-morbidities most at risk: _“A case of a terrible flu season,” in the words of some._

🥊 During the past nine months, two facts have emerged for me:

🍒 Firstly, we know our *SA government to be as corrupt as a drunken sailor, having scant regard for the safety and wellbeing of its citizens*. Crime and rape is out of control, corruption is on the rise, looting of state coffers continue, the health and educational system is groaning under layers of incompetency, road accidents and drunken driving claim many lives, and the list can go one for another 10 miles. No one cares two hoots. Instead, we have legislation such as land grabbing without compensation, tighter firearm legislation, greater victim rights etc *which seem to deliberately promote lawlessness. Suddenly, the government “cares” for its citizens and imposes an economic lockdown, crippling an already fragile economy*…hey, don’t you smell a very rotten rat here?

⛑️ Let this fact sink in. When a *fire breathing dragon suddenly starts smiling at you, you instantly know something is amiss*. On a typical day, more people get murdered, more women get raped, more people die of TB, of Pneumonia, of Cancer, but no lockdown? In fact, I’ll take it a step further to say that our politicians *have been commanded and instructed to create havoc in their countries and deliberately destabilize them*. We even have political parties whose only job is to incite towards violence, create hatred for other ethnicities, and create a big fuss over trivial things like shampoo adverts – all in the name of “economic freedom.” The two main political parties in SA *play “good cop, bad cop,” fooling everyone. One party creates mischief, and the other pretends to uncover corruption and restore order.*

🍷 But there is a logic behind this madness. The logic is simple: *people should become extremely frustrated with their governments and revolt against them*. Remember, no politician of rank is ever neutral or uncontrolled. When the puppets eventually fall, then the *puppet master makes his grand appearance as the “Saviour/Dajjal” – the one to save all from doom and gloom, only to cause more doom and gloom*. At the moment, this grand game is being synchronized across almost every country of the world.

💙 South Africa, like almost all other countries of the world, had been *registered as a Private Corporation way back in 1998 (reg no. 0000932419), with the Securities Exchange Commission of New York and London.* South Africa is not a Republic, but a wholly owned commercial corporation. Taxes first go towards servicing our national debt, which eventually finds its way into the *pockets of private individuals*. The US decides how much funds this country needs to spend on herself, on roads, health, policing and education, after it has taken the lions share. The immense funds pumped into world economies during the *Covid-plandemic has ensured total subservience of every government to Dajjal for the next 100 years.*

🧊 Now, every individual must also be brought under control, and this brings me to my second point: *the imposition of vaccinations, after a fake plandemic, in order to justify its compulsory nature in the name of “public safety.”*


🦯🦯 Vaccinations has been thought to be a very controversial topic for many decades now, but I really don’t think so. *The concept of “vaccinations” is not controversial at all, but we’re made to think so by the mainstream western media that there’s an ignorant and extremist element out there called “Anti-Vaxxers” who need to be opposed at all costs.* Let’s call this group who love coining phrases such as “anti-semitists,” “terrorists” etc, the *“Pro-Dajjal” group (or the “Modern Bio-Terrorists”) because that’s exactly who they serve – Dajjal (the Anti-Christ).* This same group also coined the term “conspiracy theorists” to *discredit anyone using his or her brains to question to the utter hogwash the mainstream media wants us to believe in.*

👜 Basically, a vaccine is a *biological preparation that provides active acquired immunity to a particular infectious disease.* It contains agents that resemble the disease-causing microorganism, and it’s often made from the weakened form of the microbe itself. When injected with this vaccine, the body *develops immunity to that disease without having to catch it first.* So, basically, a vaccine is like a jacket on a very cold winter day. One wears the jacket before venturing outdoors before the cold temperature affects him – not after being affected. Edward Jenner is considered the founder of vaccinology in England (1796), after he inoculated a 13 year-old-boy with the vaccinia virus (cowpox). But the west loves to claim credit where it’s not due, because for many hundreds of moons already, hunters and soldiers would consume very small amounts of snake or scorpion venom in order to develop immunity from snake bites whilst hunting, or to protect themselves from overt causes of assassination.

🌶️ So, no one is against the vaccines, but what they are concerned about are some of the *hidden ingredients therein.* Visit the official website of the CDC, and click on this link:

https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/b/excipient-table-2.pdf.

🌶️ From the mouth of the *official horse*, you will find the following ingredients listed in various vaccines:

🍏 *Formaldehyde/Formalin* – Highly toxic systematic poison and carcinogen.

🍏 *Betapropiolactone* – Toxic chemical and carcinogen. May cause death/permanent injury after very short exposure to small quantities. Corrosive chemical.

🍏*Hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide* – May cause damage to the liver, cardiovascular system, and central nervous system. May cause reproductive effects and birth defects.

🍓 *Aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate, and aluminum salts* – Neurotoxin. Carries risk for long term brain inflammation/swelling, neurological disorders, autoimmune disease, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and autism. It penetrates the brain where it persists indefinitely.

🍏 *Thimerosal (mercury) – Neurotoxin*. Induces cellular damage, reduces oxidation-reduction activity, cellular degeneration, and cell death. Linked to neurological disorders, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and autism.

🍏 *Polysorbate 80 & 20* – Trespasses the Blood-Brain Barrier and carries with it aluminum, thimerosal, and viruses; allowing it to enter the brain.

🍏 *Glutaraldehyde* – Toxic chemical used as a disinfectant for heat sensitive medical equipment.

🍏 *Fetal Bovine Serum* – Harvested from bovine (cow) fetuses taken from pregnant cows before slaughter.

🍏 *Human Diploid Fibroblast Cells* – aborted fetal cells. Foreign DNA has the ability to interact with our own.

🍏 *African Green Monkey Kidney Cells* – Can carry the SV-40 cancer-causing virus that has already tainted about 30 million Americans.

🍏 *Acetone* – Can cause kidney, liver, and nerve damage.

🍏 *E.Coli* – Yes, you read that right.

🍏 DNA from *porcine (pig)* Circovirus type-1

🍏 *Human embryonic lung cell cultures* (from aborted fetuses)

🔥🔥 If normal vaccines carry such huge amounts of trash, then the *purported Covid-19 vaccine takes the concept of vaccines to an altogether new level*. It may be given in stages, a few days apart, or every year, but already the WHO (World *Hoax* Organisation) claims that it may not provide full cover, only partial cover. So, a new version of the vaccine will have to be taken every year to cater for the new mutations. *If majority of people got certain cure from Covid-19 by means of various herbal and allopathic medicines, what would be the need to inject oneself to obtain uncertain cure?*

🧠🧠 The purported vaccine will also have an *illuminum, called Luciferace.* These are nanoparticles, coupled with other undisclosed ingredients within the vaccine’s bio-chemical properties, capable of not only piercing the *blood-brain barrier, but can also be linked to certain radiation towers like 5G or 6G* in order to *modify behavior and influence belief and thought.* These toxic particles can enter the brain and stay there for decades, causing an epidemic of neuro-psychological issues and chronic inflammation. Outbreaks such as *Alzheimers, Autism, ADHD, Autism, ADD, Seizures, Asthma* and host of other unknown side-effects may be mainfested. How this happens is by a process called “Molecular Mimicry”, whence the body sees those proteins, thinking it’s foreign, but then it finds some of those same “foreign” proteins in the body, and so it rejects all those proteins – the authentic and the fake – from the body. Basically, our natural auto-immune system, designed to protect us from *foreign invaders, starts attacking itself*.

🙈 If you really want to take the vaccine, ask for *full disclosure of the ingredients and have it independently verified. Have your lawyer present, and sign a R200 million liability clause in case of vaccine injury,* to be deposited into a trust account and returned within a few months or years, if there are no side-effects. See if any government will agree to this.

👉👉 By now, you may have already grasped Dajjal’s master plan. The idea is *not to protect you, but to control you*. The vaccinated will be given a health *passport ID system (a form of biometric identity card)* to control international travel, access job opportunities, driving licenses, governmental schooling, working within the corporate, banking, financial, and government sector etc, but the *unvaccinated will not be allowed these privileges, even though they may be healthier than the former group.*

🎩🎩 This is why I call the end-result of the Covid vaccine *“Dajjal’s heaven or hell”.* Those who succumb to it, will enter his heaven, which will be hell in reality. Those who refuse, will enter his hell, but will be in heaven instead, *under the protection and mercy of our Almighty. Dajjal’s heaven will promise some temporary privileges, but it leads to eternal hell;* his hell will seem fiery, but it will be enjoyed by the belivers, just like *Prophet Abraham’s cool fire.*

☔☔ _Go on, make your choice. There’s still a few months to mull over it._

THE NAME ‘CORONA’ IS NOT COINCIDENTAL; IT IS A SECRETIVE SELECTION

By Jamiatul Ulama Gauteng

Reading the information hereto your eyes will pop out.

This ‘corona virus’ is a fallacious ideology being spread under the cover of fear and hallucination.

Are you aware that this word rich in meaning, ‘corona’ is found in the Jews scriptural work, the Talmud?

In Hebrew corona is written thus קרא נא it means: to call.

To call who?

The answer is: the Jewish Messiah; not Dajjaal but Hashem or Moshiach.

According to orthodox Jewish belief the Messiah will be a liberal leader of Jewish ancestry who will demolish Masjid Aqsa and construct in its place the Temple of Solomon for Dajjaal.

According to the Jewish religion when that Messiah appears everyone will be hiding in their homes and they will be calling him with these words; ‘corona, corona, corona.’ (O our Messiah! Come! Come! Now come!’)

Furthermore, the novel corona virus has been dubbed Covid-19 by the Jews. And don’t take this too to be just a coincidence.

I always impress on the minds of readers that the Jews utilize words which have multiple meanings, which apparently mean something whilst the original purport is something else.

The word ‘covid’ appears in the Jewish Talmud in the first paragraph of the fifth chapter as masechet Berachot in this manner: אין עומדין להתפלל אלא מתוך כובד דראש.

It means: A person should not stand up for prayer as long as he does not have covid.

Now what is covid?

Jewish scholars explain its meaning to be humbleness. In other words, you should believe that we are nothing, and without Hashem (the Messiah) we can do nothing. Therefore we should call him with the word ‘covid’. We should humbly call him.

And what should we say?

We should say 19.

Now what is this 19?

19 is Sim Shalom (Grant Peace) – ask God for peace, goodness, blessings, kindness, and compassion.

The meaning of 19 is found in the Talmud. It is the 19th word in the Jewish prayer. In other words, we should repeat the 19th word with the word corona then only will our Messiah come and demolish the Aqsa Mosque and construct the Temple of Soloman for Dajjaal.

Now you may have understood how the Zionists put forward their plans undercover of dubious words.

Now reflect over the words of the Israeli minister of health and the words of the minister of defence. The one says that we have no trouble with corona, whilst the other says that our saviour, the Messiah’s advent is near.

Furthermore, the Chief Rabbi of Israel has announced that the Messiah will come this year.

Not so long ago you may have seen the trend which the Qadiyaanis started and the effort put into it by the slave of Jewish ideology in Pakistan.

Yes, you have understood 100%. It is for precisely this reason that everyone is being placed under corona lockdown in their homes.

It is not merely a coincidence that in this digital age the vaccine which is being prepared for this corona virus will efface from your mind the True Deity and implant in its place obedience to Dajjaal.

Therefore, stop using this word because there is no corona virus; it is just a myth and falsehood of the Jews.

Publisher’s Appeal: Do forward this eye-opening account and call upon all Muslims to safeguard their Imaan and Aqaaid.

IBN SAYYAAD- DAJJAAL?

Is Ibn Sayyaad, the Yahoodi mentioned in the Hadith, the Dajjaal who will appear during the time of Imaam Mahdi (Alayhis salaam)? It appears that some Sahaabah were of the understanding that Ibn Sayyaad was Dajjaal. Ibn Sayyaad also known as Ibnus Saa-id was a Yahoodi. There is much mystery surrounding this character. Once w h e n R a s u l u l l a h (Sallall ahu ala yhi wasallam) and Hadhrat Umar (Radhiyallahu anhu) met him, Hadhrat Umar for some reason gained the impression that this was Dajjaal. He sought permission from Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) to kill Ibn Sayyaad. Rasulullah (Sallall ahu ala yhi wasallam) said: “If he is indeed Dajjaal, then you have not been appointed to kill him.” In other words: You will not be able to kill him because Nabi Isaa (Alayhis salaam) has been appointed by Allah Ta’ala to slay Dajjaal.
Thus, this clarification by Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), the killing by Nabi Isaa (Alayhis salaam), Dajjaal’s appearance during the age of Imaam Mahdi (Alayhis salaam), Hadhrat Tameemud Daari (Radhiyallahu anhu) and other Sahaabah having personally seen and met the giant Dajjaal on an island where he was chained, Dajjaal being unaware at that time that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had already appeared, and his expressing joy when he was informed by the Sahaabi that Nabi (Sallall ahu ala yhi wasallam) had already appeared, all of this confirm that Ibn Sayyaad was not the real Dajjaal mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) to appear in close proximity to Qiyaamah.
One explanation for the understanding or misunderstanding of Ibn Sayyaad being the promised Dajjaal is that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had said that before the actual Dajjaal’s appearance a number of small dajjaals will appear. He was one such ‘dajjaal’ just as the Tariq Jameel dajjaal in our current era. There have been similar dajjaals throughout the history of Islam. Another mini dajjaal is the mickey-mouse dajjaal known as ‘mufti’ Menk as well as others of his ilk. Another fact is that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had said that Dajjaal will not be able to enter Makkah and Madinah. But Ibn Sayyaad was in Madinah and he went to Makkah for Hajj or Umrah. Adding to the mystery is the disappearance of Ibn Sayyaad from the scene. Furthermore, there is a host of signs and acts mentioned in the Hadith about the actual Dajjaal. None of these were demonstrated by Ibn Sayyaad. Also, the actual Dajjaal will appear during the era of Imaam Mahdi (Alayhis salaam) in close proximity to Qiyaamah while Ibn Sayyaad lived during the time of Rasulullah (Sallall ahu ala yhi wasallam). Although there is some mystery about him, there is certitude that he is not the actual Dajjaal who will appear during the time of Imaam Mahdi. It will be Nabi Isaa (Alayhis salaam) who will kill him. This is a brief account of Ibn Sayyaad.
There is further academic discussion and other narratives on this issue, but for the sake of brevity we have dispensed with it.

MORONS-The followers of Dajjaal

Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) said:
“People who are greatly enamoured by supernatural feats will be mostly the followers of Dajjaal. The need for following the Sunnah is imperative. Without this, there is deviation, hence such people (despite being professed Muslims) will follow Dajjaal. The people will not be able to escape the tentacles of Dajjaal. Only the followers of the Sunnah will be safe from Dajjaal.
Once I saw Dajjaal in a dream. He was accompanied by innumerable women and musical instruments. People who worship beauty (in haraam ways) will join Dajjaal. It is narrated in Masnawi that Shaitaan had supplicated to Allah Ta’ala for traps. When he was informed that his traps will be women, his delight was beyond all bounds. Nowadays, the peers (the fake spiritual guides) are trapped in this calamity. They worship beauty (i.e. they intermingle with women) and they act in conflict with the Sunnah.”
Comment: Just as Dajjaal will be attracting crowds with his haraam machinations, so too are his agents following in his footsteps. Shayaateenul Ins such as Tariq Jameel, Menk, Sooliman Moolla and many other facebook juhala are all setting the stage for Dajjaal.

Mustafa Kemal Atatürk: Jew, Muslim or Non-Muslim?

 

[33:70] O you who believe, fear Allah, and speak in straightforward words.


Introduction:

Pakistan and Turkey are two Muslim countries which in addition to sharing a common religion also have common business, political, bilateral and foreign relation interests. Both nations also have a fixation, undying love and devotion to their founding father. Muhammad Ali Jinnah is affectionately called Quaid-i-Azam (The Greatest Leader) by the Pakistanees and Mustafa Kemal is affectionately called Atatürk (Father of the Turks).
The lineage, origins and family history of both of these leaders is suspect. Muhammad Ali Jinnah was an Ismaili Rafidhi (Shia), secular in his outlook who some Islamic Scholars state later accepted Islam.

Both the Pakistanees and Turks refuse to ever acknowledge or admit these historical facts and you will even see religious Muslims often adorn their pictures with Islamic headgear etc. In the case of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, speeches during the later part of his life do advocate Islam (specifically mentioning Qur’aan and Sunnah) and his funeral prayer was performed by Allamah Shabbir Ahmed Usmani (RA) so there is some credible evidence that he accepted Islam or at least drastically changed his views towards the later part of his life.

Mustafa Kemal’s parentage and origins has no less than 4 separate accounts and most importantly he remained staunchly secular and opposed Islam until the very end. He said and others quoted regarding him:

We do not need take the principles for our party from a book that supposingly was revealed from the heaven. [Ataturk, Soylev ve Demecleri (Istanbul 1945) 389]

There is no religion, only the people. [Wrote on the cover of the book of Ruseni Barkin]

Respected people, every man should move his religion on the side if he wants to strive towards a civilized society.[Diary notes, Mustafa Kemal, Nutuk, 460.]

His close friends like Reza Nur, an atheist and Kazim Karabekir Pasa all claim he was an enemy to Islam and an atheist. He removed the shariah courts.

The great Ottoman scholar Shaykh al-Islam Mustafa Sabri called him kaafir and a British puppet. [Mustafa Sabri Efendi, Hilafetin ilgasinin arka plani (Istanbul)]

 

His words, statements and most importantly actions cannot be taken as those of a Muslim. However in the last two decades evidence has been unearthed that Mustafa Kemalwas actually a Dönmeh i.e. a crypto Jew a group of individuals who publicly converted to Islam but secretly held on to their own beliefs.

 

What we present below is the research from Jewish sources on the origins and heritage of Mustafa Kemal.

 


When Ataturk Recited the Jewish “Shema Yisrael” (1994)

Hillel Halkin

When Kemal Ataturk Recited Shema Yisrael: ‘It’s My Secret Prayer, Too,’. He Confessed

ZICHRON YAAKOV — There were two questions I wanted to ask, I said over the phone to Batya Keinan, spokeswoman for Israeli president Ezer Weizman, who was about to leave the next day, Monday, Jan. 24, on the first visit ever made to Turkey by a Jewish chief of state. One was whether Mr. Weizman would be taking part in an official ceremony commemorating Kemal Ataturk.

Ms. Kenan checked the president’s itinerary, according to which he and his wife would lay a wreath on Ataturk’s …
Excited and Distressed

I thanked her and hung up. A few minutes later it occurred to me to call back and ask whether President Weizman intended to make any reference while in Turkey to Ataturk’s Jewish antecedents. “I’m so glad you called again,” said Ms. Kenan, who now sounded excited and a bit distressed. “Exactly where did you get your information from?”

Why was she asking, I countered, if the president’s office had it too?

Because it did not, she confessed. She had only assumed that it must because I had sounded so matter-of-fact myself. “After you hung up,” she said, “I mentioned what you told me and nobody here knows anything about it. Could you please fax us what you know?”

I faxed her a short version of it. Here is a longer one.

Stories about the Jewishness of Ataturk, whose statue stands in the main square of every town and city in Turkey, already circulated in his lifetime but were denied by him and his family and never taken seriously by biographers. Of six biographies of him that I consulted this week, none even mentions such a speculation. The only scholarly reference to it in print that I could find was in the entry on Ataturk in the Israeli Entsiklopedya ha-Ivrit, which begins:

“Mustafa Kemal Ataturk – (1881-1938), Turkish general and statesman and founder of the modern Turkish state.

“Mustafa Kemal was born to the family of a minor customs clerk in Salonika and lost his father when he was young. There is no proof of the belief, widespread among both Jews and Muslims in Turkey, that his family came from the Doenme. As a boy he rebelled against his mother’s desire to give him a traditional religious education, and at the age of 12 he was sent at his demand to study in a military academy.”

Secular Father

The Doenme were an underground sect of Sabbetaians, Turkish Jews who took Muslim names and outwardly behaved like Muslims but secretly believed in Sabbetai Zevi, the 17th-century false messiah, and conducted carefully guarded prayers and rituals in his name. The encyclopedia’s version of Ataturk’s education, however, is somewhat at variance with his own. Here is his account of it as quoted by his biographers:

“My father was a man of liberal views, rather hostile to religion, and a partisan of Western ideas. He would have preferred to see me go to a lay school, which did not found its teaching on the Koran but on modern science.

“In this battle of consciences, my father managed to gain the victory after a small maneuver; he pretended to give in to my mother’s wishes, and arranged that I should enter the (Islamic) school of Fatma Molla Kadin with the traditional ceremony. …

“Six months later, more or less, my father quietly withdrew me from the school and took me to that of old Shemsi Effendi who directed a free preparatory school according to European methods. My mother made no objection, since her desires had been complied with and her conventions respected. It was the ceremony above all which had satisfied her.”

Who was Mustafa Kemal’s father, who behaved here in typical Doenme fashion, outwardly observing Muslim ceremonies while inwardly scoffing at them? Ataturk’s mother Zubeyde came from the mountains west of Salonika, close to the current Albanian frontier; of the origins of his father, Ali Riza, little is known. Different writers have given them as Albanian, Anatolian and Salonikan, and Lord Kinross’ compendious 1964 “Ataturk” calls Ali Riza a “shadowy personality” and adds cryptically regarding Ataturk’s reluctance to disclose more about his family background: “To the child of so mixed an environment it would seldom occur, wherever his racial loyalties lay, to inquire too exactly into his personal origins beyond that of his parentage.”

Learning Hebrew

Did Kinross suspect more than he was admitting? I would never have asked had I not recently come across a remarkable chapter while browsing in the out-of-print Hebrew autobiography of Itamar Ben-Avi, son of Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, the leading promoter of the revival of spoken Hebrew in late 19th-century Palestine. Ben-Avi, the first child to be raised in Hebrew since ancient times and later a Hebrew journalist and newspaper publisher, writes in this book of walking into the Kamenitz Hotel in Jerusalem one autumn night in 1911 and being asked by its proprietor:
‘Do you see that Turkish officer sitting there in the corner, the one with the bottle of arrack?’ ”
‘Yes.’ ”
‘He’s one of the most important officers in the Turkish army.’ ”
‘What’s his name?’ ”
‘Mustafa Kemal.’ ”
‘I’d like to meet him,’ I said, because the minute I looked at him I was startled by his piercing green eyes.”

 

Ben-Avi describes two meetings with Mustafa Kemal, who had not yet taken the name of Ataturk, ‘Father of the Turks.’ Both were conducted in French, were largely devoted to Ottoman politics, and were doused with large amounts of arrack. In the first of these, Kemal confided:

 

“I’m a descendant of Sabbetai Zevi – not indeed a Jew any more, but an ardent admirer of this prophet of yours. My opinion is that every Jew in this country would do well to join his camp.”

 

During their second meeting, held 10 days later in the same hotel, Mustafa Kemal said at one point:

 

” ‘I have at home a Hebrew Bible printed in Venice. It’s rather old, and I remember my father bringing me to a Karaite teacher who taught me to read it. I can still remember a few words of it, such as –‘ “

 

And Ben-Avi continues:
“He paused for a moment, his eyes searching for something in space. Then he recalled:

 

” ‘Shema Yisra’el, Adonai Elohenu, Adonai Ehad!’

 

” ‘That’s our most important prayer, Captain.’

 

” ‘And my secret prayer too, cher monsieur,’ he replied, refilling our glasses.”

 

Although Itamar Ben-Avi could not have known it, Ataturk no doubt meant “secret prayer” quite literally. Among the esoteric prayers of the Doenme, first made known to the scholarly world when a book of them reached the National Library in Jerusalem in 1935, is one containing the confession of faith:

 

“Sabbetai Zevi and none other is the true Messiah. Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.”

 

It was undoubtedly from this credo, rather than from the Bible, that Ataturk remembered the words of the Shema, which to the best of my knowledge he confessed knowing but once in his adult life: to a young Hebrew journalist whom he engaged in two tipsily animated conversations in Jerusalem nearly a decade before he took control of the Turkish army after its disastrous defeat in World War I, beat back the invading Greeks and founded a secular Turkish republic in which Islam was banished – once and for all, so he thought – to the mosques.

Ataturk would have had good reasons for concealing his Doenme origins. Not only were the Doenmes (who married only among themselves and numbered close to 15,000, largely concentrated in Salonika, on the eve of World War I) looked down on as heretics by both Muslims and Jews, they had a reputation for sexual profligacy that could hardly have been flattering to their offspring. This license, which was theologically justified by the claim that it reflected the faithful’s freedom from the biblical commandments under the new dispensation of Sabbetai Zevi, is described by Ezer Weizman’s predecessor, Israel’s second president, Yitzchak Ben-Zvi, in his book on lost Jewish communities, “The Exiled and the Redeemed”:

‘Saintly Offspring’

“Once a year (during the Doenmes’ annual ‘Sheep holiday’) the candles are put out in the course of a dinner which is attended by orgies and the ceremony of the exchange of wives. … The rite is practiced on the night of Sabbetai Zevi’s traditional birthday. … It is believed that children born of such unions are regarded as saintly.”

Although Ben-Zvi, writing in the 1950s, thought that “There is reason to believe that this ceremony has not been entirely abandoned and continues to this day,” little is known about whether any of the Doenmes’ traditional practices or social structures still survive in modern Turkey. The community abandoned Salonika along with the city’s other Turkish residents during the Greco-Turkish war of 1920-21, and its descendants, many of whom are said to be wealthy businessmen and merchants in Istanbul, are generally thought to have assimilated totally into Turkish life.

After sending my fax to Batya Keinan, I phoned to check that she had received it. She had indeed, she said, and would see to it that the president was given it to read on his flight to Ankara. It is doubtful, however, whether Mr. Weizman will allude to it during his visit: The Turkish government, which for years has been fending off Muslim fundamentalist assaults on its legitimacy and on the secular reforms of Ataturk, has little reason to welcome the news that the father of the ‘Father of the Turks’ was a crypto-Jew who passed on his anti-Muslim sentiments to his son. Mustafa Kemal’s secret is no doubt one that it would prefer to continue to be kept.

Awakenedgoyim : All the so called “Young Turks” That led the revolution against the Sultan were Jewish. The Genocide against the Armenians was also led by these Jewish rulers of Turkey. The Muslim Turks have been used as pawns just as Americans and Europeans today are being used as pawns.

Jewish involvement in Turkish life continues to date through it’s military, since many of it’s Generals are of Jewish descent,and through the media and finance, biggest daily newspapers and many large industrial companies and banks are Jewish owned.

 


 

The Turkish – Israeli Connection and Its Jewish History (1999)

Joseph Hantman

 

“One of the most significant developments in recent Middle East affairs is the close relationship which now exists between Turkey and Israel in military, political, economic and intelligence matters. This change in the power structure is usually attributable to the old Arab maxim “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Since both Turkey and Israel count Syria and Iraq as their strongest threats, the close ties between Turkey and Israel are quite logical.

However, there is good evidence of a less widely known but absolutely fascinating story behind this relationship. Turkey, which has a population almost exclusively Muslim, has a government which by law is committed to being totally secular. This goes back to modern Turkey’s founding father, Mustafa Kemal (Ataturk), 1881-1938, leader of the Young Turk Movement which took over after World War I and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.

Ataturk and his followers moved rapidly to end religious domination and many religious practices in the daily life of the country. They decreed a change from the Arabic alphabet to the Roman, and they outlawed the fez and the veil. They opened schools to both boys and girls, and their main goal was to Westernize Turkey and secularize its practices. The Turkish army has been the main enforcement agent of this secular policy in times of rising fundamentalism among some groups.

Some Background Data:

In the 18th and early 19th century Salonika (now Thesalonika), under Turkish rule in Greece, was the unofficial capital of Sephardic Jewry. Of the three groups in the city, the Jews were larger than the combined Greek Orthodox and Muslim population.

The Jews dominated the commerce of the city and controlled the docks of this major seaport. There were great synagogues and academies of rabbinic study. Moslem shops closed on Friday, Greek Orthodox on Sunday, and most shops and businesses were closed on Shabbat. Ladino, the beautiful mix of Spanish and Hebrew, was the lingua franca of the city and “Shabbat Shalom” was the universal Saturday greeting among all. In the late 19th and early 20th century the city declined as a result of conflict between Greek Orthodox and Muslims, and Jewish dominance of the city decreased.

Fall of the Ottoman Empire:

With the fall of the Ottoman Empire after World War I and the decision at the Treaty of Lausanne in 1923 to create an independent Greek state, the decision was made to transfer populations. All Muslims  in Greece had to move to Turkey and all Orthodox Greeks in Turkey had to move to Greece. In all, about 350,000 Muslims  and one million Greeks were involved in the move. Jews were permitted to remain wherever they lived.

At this time a group of Muslims  went to the authorities supervising the population shift and explained that they were not really Muslims  but were in fact really Jews posing as Muslims . The authorities would not entertain such a claim so the group then went to the Chief Rabbi, Saul Amarillo, to verify their Jewish status. Rabbi Amarillo states, “Yes, I know who you are. You are momzarim (very loosely translated as [Edited Out]s) and as such not acceptable in the Jewish community.” These people were the Doenmeh, the Turkish word for converts, and their existence had been known for over 200 years. They were called momzarim because of the bizarre sexual practices that were part of their religious rituals, which made it impossible to trace parentage and lineage. The Doenmeh were forced to leave Salonika for Turkey, which, considering the tragic fate of Salonika’s Jews during the Holocaust 20 years later, undoubtedly saved their lives.

Atatürk’s Jewish Family – Who Were the Doenmeh? (Dönme):

One of the best known names but least known historical figures in Jewish history is Shabbtai Zvi, the “false messiah” (1626-1687). Born in Smyrna, Turkey, of a Sephardic father and an Ashkenazi mother, he was a brilliant child and Talmudic student, and an ordained rabbi in his mid teens. He went on to study and became a master in Kabbalah and other Jewish mysticism. His oratory was captivating and he soon acquired a following. However, he exhibited odd characteristics, including periods of illumination where he was believed to be communicating with God and periods of darkness when he was wrestling with evil. Soon he began to hint that he was the Messiah. This blasphemy caused him to be expelled from a number of congregations. He took up a pilgrim’s staff and with some followers roamed the Middle East, gathering many to his messianic preaching, especially during his periods of light. In Gaza he was welcomed by Rabbi Nathan, who had for years been preaching that the arrival of the Messiah was imminent. This combination led to a great outpouring of belief in Shabbtai Zvi as the Messiah. Word spread throughout the Jewish world, from Poland, Amsterdam, Germany, London, Persia, and Turkey to Yemen. Multitudes joined his ranks – educated rabbis, illiterates, rich and poor alike were swept up in the mass hysteria.

Among his inner core, they accepted his theory that all religious restrictions were reversed. The forbidden was encouraged and the commandments of the Torah were replaced by Shabbtai’s 18 (chai) commandments. This led to feasting on fast days, sexual relations with others than one’s spouse, and many more. The high point was in 1665-66, when Shabbtai, with his followers, marched on the Sultan’s palace expecting to be greeted as the Messiah. This of course did not happen. To shorten this story, Shabbtai was given the choice “convert to Islam or die.” To the consternation of his followers, he chose conversion. Most of his followers return to their homelands where, after penitence and sometimes flagellation, they were received into the congregations. However, some hundreds of families of his inner circle considered his apostasy as part of his overall plan of reaching the depth before attaining redemption. They too converted to Islam, although for about 200 years they lived as Muslims but secretly passed on their secret quasi-Jewish Shabbatean beliefs and practices to their children. They continued learning and praying in Hebrew and Ladino. As the generations passed, the knowledge of Hebrew was reduced to reciting certain prayers and expressions by memory in a barely understood Hebrew. They were known in Turkish as Doenmeh, meaning “converts”; to the Jews they were Minim, meaning “heretics.” They referred to themselves as Ma’aminim, the “believers.” They were never really accepted by the Turks nor by the Jews.

As we get into the middle and late 1800′s and education and enlightened thinking spread through parts of the region, young Doenmeh men who were dissatisfied with their status as “neither-nor” turned to secular nationalism to establish their identity. They neglected all forms of religious belonging and saw in the “Young Turk movement” their emancipation.

Atatürk’s Jewish Roots:

In 1911 in the Hotel Kamenetz in Jerusalem, Itamar Ben Avi, a newspaperman and writer who was the son of Eleazer Ben Yehudah (credited as the main proponent of the establishment of Modern Hebrew) met with a young Turkish Army officer. After enjoying a good quantity of Arak, the officer, Col. Mustafa Kemal, turned to his drinking partner and recited the “Shema” in fluent Hebrew and indicated that he came from a Doenmeh family. They met again on a few occasions and Kemal filled in more of his background. This man was of course to become General Kemal Ataturk, founder of modern Turkey.

Remnants of Doenmeh still exist. There is an unidentifiable building known as the Jewish Mosque where Doenmeh still meet. During World War II, when Turkey was close to Germany, there were separate tax lists for different religious categories, and the “D” list was for Doenmeh. During his lifetime and continuing today, there have been whispered rumors among Islamic activists that Kemal Ataturk and other Young Turks were of Jewish origin.

However, there is little doubt that 300 years after the death of Shabbtai Zvi, his influence and twists and turns of his Doenmeh followers provided the activist secular basis which is one of the underlying principles of modern Turkey – without which the Turkish-Israeli connection would have been most unlikely.

To bring this story up to date and possibly complete the circle, we now learn that some Doenmeh living in Turkey have made inquiry of American Jewish religious organizations about the possible re-entry of Doenmeh into today’s Jewish world.”

 

 


 

Mustafa Kemal and Jewish History: Quotes

 

Mustafa Kemal, (the Turkish nationalist leader) whom the great vizier presents as a Jew, was born a Turk and his parents were from Saloniki and were Deonmes, that is converts, as were the parents of Talat  and Djavid [The Associated Press news agency, citing the Grand Vizier of Turkey, mentions in an item of the 3rd of July, 1920]

Among the leaders of the revolution which resulted in a more modern government in Turkey were Djavid Bey and Mustafa Kemal. Both were ardent doenmehs. Djavid Bey became minister of finance; Mustafa Kemal became the leader of the new regime and had adopted the name of Ataturk. His opponents tried to use his doenmeh background to unseat him, but without success. Too many of the Young Turks in the newly formed revolutionary Cabinet prayed to Allah, but had as their real prophet Shabtai Zvi, the Messiah of Smyrna. [Joachim Prinze (1902-1988), who was president of the American Jewish Congress from 1958 to 1966, writes]

Scholars have firstly pointed out the fact that Mustafa was born and raised in a city, Salonika, the majority of the population of which was Jewish in the mid-nineteenth century. Actually, Salonika was the only city in the world at the time (until Tel-Aviv was founded in 1909) with a majority Jewish population. If we add to the city’s Jews the dönmeh population, who were traditionally counted among the Muslims, then the Jews and converted Jews (the dönmeh) would make up an absolute majority of the population. This is why Salonika was called the Jerusalem of the Balkans then. [Vivendi Centre Publications, 2011.

 


 

Ataturk’s Turkey Overturned (2007)

 

Hillel Halkin

Some 12 or 13 years ago, when I was reporting from Israel for the New York weekly, the Forward, I wrote a piece on Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern secular Turkey, that I submitted to the newspaper with some trepidation.

In it, I presented evidence for the likelihood of Ataturk’s having had a Jewish — or more precisely, a Doenmeh — father.

The Doenmeh were a heretical Jewish sect formed, after the conversion to Islam in the 17th century of the Turkish-Jewish messianic pretender Sabbetai Zevi, by those of his followers who continued to believe in him.

Conducting themselves outwardly as Muslims in imitation of him, they lived secretly as Jews and continued to exist as a distinct, if shadowy, group well into the 20th century.

In the many biographies of Ataturk there were three or four different versions of his father’s background, and although none identified him as a Jew, their very multiplicity suggested that he had been covering up his family origins.

This evidence, though limited, was intriguing. Its strongest item was a chapter in a long-forgotten autobiography of the Hebrew journalist, Itamar Ben-Avi, who described in his book a chance meeting on a rainy night in the late winter of 1911 in the bar of a Jerusalem hotel with a young Turkish captain.

Tipsy from too much arak, the captain confided to Ben-Avi that he was Jewish and recited the opening Hebrew words of the Shema Yisra’el or “Hear O Israel” prayer, which almost any Jew or Doenmeh — but no Turkish Muslim — would have known. Ten years later, Ben-Avi wrote, he opened a newspaper, saw a headline about a military coup in Turkey, and in a photograph recognized the leader that the young officer he had met the other night.

At the time, Islamic political opposition to Ataturk-style secularism was gaining strength in Turkey. What would happen, I wondered, when a Jewish newspaper in New York broke the news that the revered founder of modern Turkey was half-Jewish? I pictured riots, statues of Ataturk toppling to the ground, the secular state he had created tottering with them.

I could have spared myself the anxiety. The piece was run in the Forward, there was hardly any reaction to it anywhere, and life in Turkey went on as before. As far as I knew, not a single Turk even read what I wrote. And then, a few months ago, I received an e-mail from someone who had. I won’t mention his name. He lives in a European country, is well-educated, works in the financial industry, is a staunchly secular Kemalist, and was writing to tell me that he had come across my article in the Forward and had decided to do some historical research in regard to it.

One thing he discovered, he wrote, was that Ataturk indeed traveled in the late winter of 1911 to Egypt from Damascus on his way to join the Turkish forces fighting an Italian army in Libya, a route that would have taken him through Jerusalem just when Ben-Avi claimed to have met him there.

Moreover, in 1911 he was indeed a captain, and his fondness of alcohol, which Ben-Avi could not have known about when he wrote his autobiography, is well-documented.

And here’s something else that was turned up by my Turkish e-mail correspondent: Ataturk, who was born and raised in Thessaloniki, a heavily Jewish city in his day that had a large Doenmeh population, attended a grade school, known as the “Semsi Effendi School,” that was run by a religious leader of the Doenmeh community named Simon Zvi. The email concluded with the sentence: “I now know — know (and I haven’t a shred of doubt) — that Ataturk’s father’s family was indeed of Jewish stock.”

I haven’t a shred of doubt either. I just have, this time, less trepidation, not only because I no longer suffer from delusions of grandeur regarding the possible effects of my columns, but because there’s no need to fear toppling the secular establishment of Kemalist Turkey.

It toppled for good in the Turkish elections two days ago when the Islamic Justice and Development Party was returned to power with so overwhelming a victory over its rivals that it seems safe to say that secular Turkey, at least as Ataturk envisioned it, is a thing of the past.

Actually, Ataturk’s Jewishness, which he systematically sought to conceal, explains a great deal about him, above all, his fierce hostility toward Islam, the religion in which nearly every Turk of his day had been raised, and his iron-willed determination to create a strictly secular Turkish nationalism from which the Islamic component would be banished.

Who but a member of a religious minority would want so badly to eliminate religion from the identity of a Muslim majority that, after the genocide of Turkey’s Christian Armenians in World War I and the expulsion of nearly all of its Christian Greeks in the early 1920s, was 99% of Turkey’s population? The same motivation caused the banner of secular Arab nationalism to be first raised in the Arab world by Christian intellectuals.

Ataturk seems never to have been ashamed of his Jewish background. He hid it because it would have been political suicide not to, and the secular Turkish state that was his legacy hid it too, and with it, his personal diary, which was never published and has for all intents and purposes been kept a state secret all these years. There’s no need to hide it any longer. The Islamic counterrevolution has won the day in Turkey even without its exposure.

 

 

A DEVIL MUFTI (ABU LAYTH)

Q. There has been a popular discussion on social media on Sahih Bukhari, including scholars. A Mufti Abul Layth rejects the authority and authenticity of Sahih Bukhari. He brands the Ahaadith ‘absurd’. He rejects Sahih Bukhari being the most authentic book after the Qur’aan. What is his status in terms of the Shariah?
A. According to the Shariah, this moron so-called ‘mufti’ is a kaafir. Social media Shaitaani media. The ‘popular discussion happening’ on the Shaitani media is in reality a mockery of the Deen. To safeguard one’s Imaan, it is necessary to abstain from the discussions of the jaahil ‘scholars’ who are responsible for making a mockery of the Deen. Such vile scholars have been predicted by Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
This Abu Layth character is a devil’s ‘mufti’. It is an insult to Knowledge to afford his stupid views of kufr intelligent debate and discussion. He is shaitaan-incarnate. These comments suffice to dismiss the
jahaalat and the kufr effluvium which this devil in human form excretes.
May Allah Ta’ala save unwary and ignorant Muslims from the kufr of this shaitaanul ins (human devil). After twelve centuries this devil pops up and plots with his master, Iblees-in-Chief to undermine
the Deen.

Q. A man, Abu Layth in the U.K., posing as a Maaliki, is propagating many weird views of kufr. Among his deviances are the following:

1) Tattooing the body is halaal.
2) Wearing earrings is halaal for men.
3) Masturbation is halaal.
4) He rejects the coming of Imaam Mahdi (Alayhis salaam).
5) He denies the Khurooj of Dajjaal.
6) He denies the coming of Nabi Isaa (Alayhis salaam).
7) He criticizes Imaam Bukhaari (Rahmatullah alayh).
8) He calls Bukhaari Shareef fairy tales.
Besides these, he has many other absolutely shaitaani ideas and teachings.
What is the status of this man who is supposedly an Aalim?
A. Shaitaan too was a great Aalim. Rasulullah’s predictions have to materialize. The appearances of human devils (Shayaateenul ins) as mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) has to occur. The lout you have mentioned is one such devil in human form. Perhaps he is the Devil Incarnate, hence he disgorges the satanic effluvium listed by you.
It should be obvious to all Muslims that this villain is not a Muslim. He is a Munaafiq masquerading as a Muslim. Shaitaan has innumerable such agents prowling around the world. Their profession is to deviate Muslims and lead them to the path of Jahannam. Only those destined to be the inmates of Jahannam will follow such a shaitaani crank as the hoodlum pointed out by you.
Complicit in the kufr and fisq propagated by this human devil are the Ulama at your end. Those who maintain silence whilst the Rubbish propagates his rubbish, are also shayaateen. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) branded them ‘Dumb Devils’.
Whilst the appearances of these minor Dajjaals is imperative and a cause of grief for us, they are among the Signs of Qiyaamah and have to be accepted. There is nothing surprising in their onslaught on the Deen. This type of evil and fitnah is incremental as we approach Qiyaamah.
