    Bangunkan Ahli Keluarga Solat Sunat Malam

    عَنْ عَائِشَةَ قَالَتْ كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يُصَلِّي وَأَنَا رَاقِدَةٌ مُعْتَرِضَةً عَلَى فِرَاشِهِ فَإِذَا أَرَادَ أَنْ يُوتِرَ أَيْقَظَنِي فَأَوْتَرْتُ

    Daripada 'Aisyah berkata, "Nabi SAW pernah berdiri solat malam sedangkan aku berbaring di atas tikarnya. Apabila baginda melaksanakan solat witir, baginda membangunkan aku hingga aku pun bangun mengerjakan solat witir." (HR Bukhari No: 997) Status Hadis Sahih

    Pengajaran:

    1.  Bangun di waktu malam untuk qiamullail menunaikan solat malam antara amalan yang perlu dicontohi daripada Rasulullah SAW.

    2.  Rasulullah SAW mengejutkan ahli keluarganya untuk menunaikan solat sunat malam.

    Ayuh bangunkan ahli keluarga kita untuk menunaikan solat sunat malam, walaupun satu rakaat. Semoga solat sunat malam membina jati diri kita. Semoga kebiasaan baik yang kita lakukan di bulan Syaaban akan berterusan di bulan Ramadan yang penuh barakah.

    Orang Yang Tidak Bersyukur

    عَنْ أَبِى هُرَيْرَةَ عَنِ النَّبِىِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ  لاَ يَشْكُرُ اللَّهَ مَنْ لاَ يَشْكُرُ النَّاسَ

    Daripada Abu Hurairah RA, bahawa Nabi Muhammad SAW bersabda: “Tidak bersyukur kepada Allah seorang yang tidak bersyukur kepada manusia.” (HR. Abu Daud dan disahihkan di dalam kitab Silsilah Al Ahadis Ash Shahihah, 1/702).

    Pengajaran:

    1.  Orang yang tidak berterima kasih di atas kebaikan orang lain terhadapnya bermakna, ia tidak bersyukur kepada Allah di atas limpah nikmat yang diperolehi.

    2.  Al-Khaththaby berkata; barangsiapa kebiasaannya adalah kufur terhadap nikmat (kebaikan) orang dan tidak bersyukur atas kebaikan mereka, maka nescaya termasuk kebiasaannya adalah kufur terhadap nikmat Allah Ta’ala dan tidak bersyukur kepada-Nya.

    3.  Allah SWT tidak menerima syukur seorang hamba atas kebaikan Allah kepadanya, jika seorang hamba tidak bersyukur kepada kebaikan orang lain terhadapnya (Sunan Abu Daud dengan Syarah Al Khaththaby, 5/ 157-158).

    عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ -صلى الله عليه وسلم-  مَنْ أُعْطِىَ عَطَاءً فَوَجَدَ فَلْيَجْزِ بِهِ فَإِنْ لَمْ يَجِدْ فَلْيُثْنِ بِهِ فَمَنْ أَثْنَى بِهِ فَقَدْ شَكَرَهُ وَمَنْ كَتَمَهُ فَقَدْ كَفَرَهُ.

    Daripada Jabir bin Abdullah RA berkata: “Rasulullah SAW bersabda: “Barangsiapa yang diberikan sebuah hadiah, lalu ia mendapati kecukupan maka hendaknya ia membalasnya, jika ia tidak mendapati maka pujilah ia, barangsiapa yang memujinya, maka sungguh ia telah bersyukur kepadanya, barangsiapa menyembunyikannya sungguh ia telah kufur.” (HR. Abu Daud dan disahihkan dalam kitab Silsilah Al Ahadis Ash Shahihah, no. 617).

    4.  Cara membalas kebaikan dan pemberian orang lain:

    a.  Membalas pemberian tersebut
    b.  Memuji orang tersebut
    c.  Mengucapkan Jazakallah khairan kepada orang tersebut
    d.  Mendoakan orang tersebut

    Ayuh berterima kasih kepada manusia dan bersyukur kepada Allah

  • The Truth About HPV Vaccination, Part 3: Can It Prevent Cervical Cancer?
    There are no valid studies showing the vaccine for the human papillomavirus, or HPV, prevents cervical cancer. However, there are studies suggesting the vaccine could increase the risk of cancer.

    Editor’s Note: This third installment in a multi-part series about the human papillomavirus, or HPV, vaccine examines studies that link the vaccines to increased risk of serious neurological and autoimmune disorders. Read Part 1 here and Part 2 here.

    In part 1 and part 2 of this series, we discussed the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine and its links to ovarian insufficiency and autoimmune disease.

    In part 3, we turn to questions regarding the effectiveness of the vaccine to prevent cervical cancer, and the limitations of relevant clinical trials to detect such a type of effect.

    Summary of key facts

    There are multiple obstacles in designing a valid clinical trial to prove the HPV vaccine could prevent cervical cancer, e.g. long lead time, lack of adequate informed consent, complexity between HPV infection and cervical cancer and the negative impact of girls’ sexual behavior, which may worsen the risks of cervical cancer.
    Most of the HPV’s interventional clinical trials have too short a follow-up time to draw a concrete conclusion.
    In a large Swedish observational trial, which is treated as the most convincing study to prove the HPV vaccine’s effects on cervical cancer, a few confounding factors were not adequately balanced between the HPV vaccination group versus the unvaccinated group.
    The National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program (SEER) data and another U.S. study found the HPV vaccine has no effects in reducing cancer rates.
    Two other registry-based studies in Australia and the U.K. suggest that HPV vaccination is associated with increased cervical cancer rates in certain age groups.
    Long lead time from HPV infection to cervical cancer

    Typically, there is a long period from HPV infection to cervical epithelium abnormalities, then cervical cancer.

    HPV infections usually last 12–18 months and are eventually cleared by the immune system.

    Fewer than 10% of HPV infections are persistent.

    There are two types of precancerous cervical lesions, low-grade or high-grade. Low-grade cervical neoplasia grade 1 (CIN1) is usually transient and resolves naturally within one to two years.

    Only a few persistent infections progress to the clinically meaningful high-grade, CIN2 or 3. Meanwhile, the median time from CIN2/3 to transition to cancer is estimated to be 23.5 years.

    Among those with weakened immune systems, HPV-related cancer might progress more quickly.

    In a review of the natural history of HPV infection, the complex pathway from infection to cancer is elucidated, including what is known (purple boxes) and where uncertainty remains (blue boxes).



    Difficulty running clinical trials for the HPV vaccine

    Because of the long lead time from HPV infection to cervical cancer, a prospective, randomized controlled trial is not easily designed and feasibly implemented.

    Lack of long-term follow-up is a common issue for most clinical trials to prove the HPV vaccine’s effectiveness in preventing cervical cancer.

    For example, a 2007 study found that Gardasil was effective in reducing HPV-associated cervical precancerous lesions rate by 20%.

    This study followed their subjects for only an average of three years after administration of the first dose.

    Furthermore, due to the complex uncertainties in the natural history between HPV infection and cervical cancer, it is not easy to claim the effectiveness of the HPV vaccine.

    A randomized trial is designed to balance the two groups — vaccine and placebo — so that any unmeasured confounding variables which might influence the outcome of the trial are distributed evenly.

    However, if the treatment group knows they got the vaccine, might their behaviors change? Might they be less risk-averse, thinking they have some protection?

    For example, girls might think they are vaccinated and “protected” from cervical cancer and may tend to initiate sexual intercourse at a younger age or engage in sexual activities with more partners.

    However, sexual intercourse at a young age, multiple sexual partners and oral contraceptive use are associated with an increased risk of cervical cancer in women.

    In other words, HPV vaccination may offer some protection if offered before sexual activity is initiated, but it may also be associated with increased behavioral risk factors.

    Whether the benefits of vaccination outweigh any risks is therefore a multifactorial question deserving of careful longitudinal study.

    Systemic analysis of 12 clinical trials on HPV vaccine efficacy

    In 2020, a Queen Mary University study led by Dr. Claire Rees reviewed 12 randomized clinical trials for Cervarix and Gardasil. The investigators found that the trials did not include populations representative of the vaccination target groups, and the trial design may have overstated vaccine efficacy.

    For example, one trial design generated evidence that the vaccine prevents CIN1. But this is not meaningful because these lesions usually resolve on their own.

    Furthermore, the study accessed efficacy against low-grade precancerous lesions. But this is not necessarily suggestive of efficacy against the more serious but much less frequent high-grade lesions.

    Finally, the cytology screenings were done every six to 12 months instead of every 36 months (normal screening interval), meaning the efficacy of the vaccine may have been overestimated, as low-grade lesions could go away spontaneously.

    All this is to say the HPV vaccine may be effective at preventing more serious lesions which lead to cervical cancer, but it is hard to know because of these poorly designed trials.

    Nothing is conclusive without a larger trial powered to detect a difference in rates of more serious cervical changes according to the typical screening schedule. However, such a trial has not yet been performed.

    Swedish nationwide health registry study

    A nationwide Swedish health registry-based study followed 1,672,983 women for 12 years to assess the association between HPV vaccination and the risk of cervical cancer.

    In this study, the cumulative incidence of cervical cancer was 47 cases per 100,000 women vaccinated and 94 per 100,000 unvaccinated, suggesting that HPV4 vaccination was associated with a reduced risk of 49 to 63% of invasive cervical cancer at the population level.

    Even though the results are positive, the study researchers raised a few concerns themselves.

    First, HPV-vaccinated women could have been generally healthier than unvaccinated women. This is known as “healthy volunteer bias.”

    Second, a mother’s history of cervical cancer might be associated with both vaccination uptake and underlying risk of cervical cancer as well as screening rates.

    Third, lifestyle and health factors such as smoking, sexual intercourse at a young age, multiple sexual partners, oral contraceptive use and obesity are reportedly associated with the risk of cervical cancer.

    These factors have not been thoroughly analyzed by this study and could have contributed to the data.

    Furthermore, parental education level and annual household income level may be interconnected with lifestyle factors such as smoking status.

    Strengths of this study include its size, duration and outcome of interest being invasive cancer, not low-grade lesions. However, it is impossible to exclude the relationship between lifestyle factors, vaccination uptake and cervical cancer.

    Only a randomized controlled trial (RCT) could balance the two groups on these unmeasured — but related — risk factors.

    However even if the risk factors (sexual behaviors) are fully balanced at baseline with an RCT, it is hard to keep them still balanced during the whole study course after HPV vaccination.

    No association found in a U.S. database

    Meanwhile, researchers found no association between vaccination and cancer mortality in the U.S.

    According to the National Cancer Institute’s SEER program, the incidence of deaths from cervical cancer before Gardasil’s introduction in the U.S. had been steadily declining for years and, in 2006, was 2.4 per 100,000 women.

    The data from 2016–2020 is 2.2 per 100,000 women — essentially unchanged.

    In a cross-sectional study using a nationally representative sample of U.S. adults aged 20–59 years, among 9,891 participants, the researchers did not find an association between HPV vaccination and HPV-related cancers.

    Increase in cervical cancer after HPV vaccine rollout: Australia

    In Australia, government data similarly reveal an increase in cervical cancer rates in certain age groups of women following the implementation of the Gardasil vaccine.

    Thirteen years after Gardasil was recommended for teenagers and young adults, there has been a 30% increase in 30- to 34-year-old women (4.9 cases/100,000 compared to 6.6 cases/100,000 in 2020) being diagnosed with cervical cancer.

    Even though the rates decreased in other age groups, the abnormal increase in the 30–34 age group needs an explanation.



    Several factors should be considered.

    First, this database does not tell the stage of cancer. More cancer diagnosed at an early stage may result in a cancer-rate increase.

    Second, decreasing cancer rates could be caused by declines in screening rates, perhaps due to the pandemic and/or a reluctance to get tested.

    Third, Australia has an increasing proportion of immigrants from South Asia, and these cultural factors may influence the cervical cancer-screening rate.

    A study of South Asian women living in Australia found that almost half had never had a previous screening test.

    Cervical cancer rates rise after HPV vaccination in the UK

    In the U.K., HPV vaccination was introduced in 2008 for girls aged 12–13 with catch-up for those aged 14–18. Many expected cervical cancer rates in women aged 20–24 to fall by 2014 as the vaccinated cohorts entered their 20s.

    However, in 2016 national statistics showed a worrying and substantial 70% increase in the rate of cervical cancer at ages 20 to 24 (i.e. from 2.7 in 2012 to 4.6 per 100,000 in 2014).

    While the author would consider it to be too early to draw conclusions regarding vaccine efficacy in protecting against cancer, this merits further study.

    Accordingly, an analysis was conducted in the U.K. in 2018 in response to public interest regarding this increase in cervical cancer.

    Researchers from Queen Mary University and King’s College London found that it was attributable to an increase in the proportion of women first screened at age 24.5 years.

    The increase was limited to stage I cervical cancer. But there was no evidence of a lack of screening leading to increasing rates.

    While the researchers considered it too early to conclude vaccine efficacy in protecting against cancer, these findings merit further study.

    Could HPV vaccines make HPV infections worse?

    Besides the vaccine’s unclear effectiveness in cancer prevention, studies further suggest the suppression of the HPV strains targeted by the vaccine may induce more virulent strains.

    For example, a 2015 study found that vaccinated young adult women had a higher prevalence of high-risk HPV types other than types 16 and 18, putting them at risk for more aggressive cervical and other HPV-related cancers.

    Editor’s Note: This second installment in a multi-part series about the human papillomavirus, or HPV, vaccine examines studies that link the vaccines to increased risk of serious neurological and autoimmune disorders. Read Part 1 here.

    Summary of key facts

    A Danish review of 79,102 female and 16,568 male subjects, found human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines had significantly increased rates of serious nervous system disorders. Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and complex regional pain syndrome were judged “definitely associated” with the HPV vaccine.
    A large Danish and Swedish study including nearly 300,000 girls found a significant association between the HPV vaccine and increased rates of Bechet’s syndrome (rate ratio 3.37), Raynaud’s disease (1.67) and type 1 diabetes (1.29).
    A large study including 3 million Danish and Swedish women aged 18 to 44, identified seven adverse events with statistically significant increased risks following HPV vaccination: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, celiac disease, lupus erythematosus, pemphigus vulgaris, Addison’s disease, Raynaud’s disease and encephalitis, myelitis, or encephalomyelitis.
    A 2017 French study of over 2.2 million young girls found evidence of a 3.78-fold increased risk of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). A 2011 U.S. study found nearly a two-and-a-half to 10 times greater risk of acquiring GBS within six weeks post-Gardasil vaccination.
    While the underlying mechanisms causing these autoimmune reactions are not yet fully understood, some researchers speculate that the sizable overlap in protein sequences between the HPV and the human genome may cause the immune system to attack itself. Others are concerned that the adjuvants (such as aluminum) used to attract the attention of the immune system may be causing harm.
    Neurological and autoimmune disorders

    Danish review found increased nervous system disorder

    In 2020, a group of Danish scientists conducted a systematic review of the overall benefits and harms of HPV vaccines.

    Twenty-four eligible randomized controlled clinical studies were obtained, with a total of 95,670 participants, mostly women, and 49 months mean weighted follow-up.

    Almost all controls were given an active comparator vaccine (typically a hepatitis vaccine with a comparable aluminum-based adjuvant).

    Given that the adjuvant is highly immunogenic by design (it is meant to grab the attention of the immune system), this trial design makes it difficult to detect an excess risk with the HPV vaccines.

    Without true controls (such as a saline placebo), the real risks of HPV vaccination cannot be accurately assessed.

    In the vaccine group, 367 cancers were detected, compared to 490 in the comparator group.

    Younger participants (15 to 29) seemed to benefit more from the vaccine concerning preventing moderate HPV-related intraepithelial neoplasia compared to older participants (ages 21 to 72). Younger participants also had fewer fatal harms.

    Even though the studies were flawed in their design, at four years post-vaccination, those who had received the HPV vaccines had significantly increased rates of serious nervous system disorders: 49%, as well as general harms totaling 7%.

    The serious harms that were judged “definitely associated” with HPV vaccines were postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and complex regional pain syndrome. POTS had a nearly twofold increase in the vaccinated group.

    By July 2017, only two-thirds of the results from HPV vaccine trials had been published, and only about half the results had been posted, due to manuscript length limitations, reporting bias and confounding journal articles offering a limited view of trial outcomes.

    This Danish systematic review compiled data from all the HPV trials to offer a summary of the evidence thus far.

    Nevertheless, the investigators acknowledged that despite three years of work, the limitations of their analysis remained. These included reporting bias, incomplete reporting, data fragmentation and limited trial follow-up.

    These investigators similarly note that the trials were powered to assess the benefits of HPV vaccination, not rare harms. The degree to which benefits outweigh risks is therefore unknown.

    They concluded that future research should carefully evaluate the harms following Gardasil 9 compared to Gardasil because the former contains more than double the virus proteins and aluminum-containing adjuvant than the same dose of Gardasil.

    Large studies reveal autoimmune events

    In 2009, the HPV4 vaccine was integrated into the Danish childhood vaccination program. Since then, two large cohort studies on the HPV4 vaccine adverse events have been carried out using the hospital-based healthcare registries of Denmark and Sweden.

    The first study in Denmark and Sweden included 296,826 girls aged 10 to 17 who received a total of 696,420 HPV4 vaccine doses.

    The scientists evaluated rate ratios for autoimmune events and found no significant association for 20 out of 23 events.

    They found a significant association between the HPV4 vaccine and Bechet’s syndrome (rate ratio 3.37), Raynaud’s disease (1.67) and type 1 diabetes (1.29).

    But after further review, they concluded that there was insufficient evidence for a causal association, because of the weakness of the signal and the lack of an underlying mechanism to explain biological plausibility.

    In a second large cohort study, the same team expanded their research to more than 3 million Danish and Swedish adult women aged 18 to 44.

    The authors identified seven adverse events with statistically significant increased risks following HPV4 vaccination: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, celiac disease, lupus erythematosus, pemphigus vulgaris, Addison’s disease, Raynaud’s disease and encephalitis, myelitis or encephalomyelitis.

    After sensitivity analyses, the association between HPV4 vaccination and celiac disease was the most robust finding.

    Celiac disease is a condition where a person’s immune system attacks the body’s own gut after eating gluten.

    As the graph below shows, the scientists used two risk periods after HPV4 vaccination: the first 180 days and after.

    1 time since first dose HPV4 vaccine coeliac cases
    Time since the first dose of the HPV4 vaccine for vaccinated coeliac cases in a cohort of Danish and Swedish women. Credit: Journal of Internal Medicine
    The authors noted that the observed 56% increased risk of celiac disease “was strong, and the increase was strikingly similar in both risk periods after vaccination.”

    Celiac disease is underdiagnosed in Denmark.

    So one possible explanation is that vaccination visits allow a chance for this and other conditions to be diagnosed and explored.

    This explanation suggests that the association between the HPV vaccine and autoimmune disorders may be coincidental.

    However, given the lack of any real control groups in these studies, as well as the growing body of scientific literature from countries around the world showing problems with the HPV vaccine, dismissing these safety signals as coincidence seems short-sighted.

    Large French study and U.S. VAERS study identify risks of Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    The concern about autoimmune disease adverse events has contributed to low HPV vaccination uptake in France.

    A 2017 study of over 2.2 million young girls in France found troubling evidence of a link with Guillain-Barré syndrome. GBS is a condition that arises when our own antibodies attack the nerves.

    The incidence of GBS was found to be 1.4 per 100,000 person-years among the vaccinated girls compared to 0.4 per 100,000 among the unvaccinated, resulting in an increased risk of GBS of more than 200%.

    The association appeared to be “particularly marked in the first months following vaccination.”

    This finding is corroborated by the pattern of adverse reactions reported worldwide. Data from a large number of case reports document similar serious adverse events associated with Gardasil administration, with nervous system disorders of autoimmune origin being the most frequently reported.

    A 2011 U.S. study found that the estimated weekly reporting rate of post-Gardasil GBS within the first six weeks (6.6 per 10,000,000) was higher than in the general population, and higher than post-Menactra and post-influenza vaccinations.

    In particular, there was nearly a two-and-a-half to 10 times greater risk of acquiring GBS within six weeks after vaccination, compared to the general population.

    Additionally, the study found Gardasil vaccination was associated with approximately eight-and-a-half times more emergency department visits, 12.5 times more hospitalizations, 10 times more life-threatening events and 26.5 times more disability than the Menactra vaccination.

    Plausible mechanisms of harm

    Despite the conflicting data in the scientific literature to date, it is clear that the HPV vaccines can cause autoimmune disorders in susceptible people. But how?

    Autoimmunity has been reported as a complication of natural infection as well as virus vaccination. This phenomenon has been observed with many viruses, including the Epstein-Barr virus, COVID-19 and HPV.

    According to a 2019 study, the HPV vaccine contains epitopes — portions of the virus proteins — that overlap with the human proteins.

    This means that if we develop antibodies to those viruses, we may also generate autoantibodies to our own cells, which is the root cause of autoimmune dysfunction.

    The study showed that most of the immunoreactive HPV L1 epi­topes are overlapping peptides present in human proteins.

    The authors explained that this “unexpected enormous size of the peptide overlap between the HPV epitopes and human proteins” is relevant, and may be why a wide variety of autoimmune diseases have been reported post-HPV vaccination, including ovarian failure, systemic lupus erythematosus, breast cancer and sudden death, among others.

    Why some people develop these conditions and others do not is unclear.

    The authors suggest that vaccines should target the few peptides that do not overlap with human proteins, but which do overlap with the other HPVs.

    Despite this overlap and the potential for causing autoimmune disease, medical doctors usually ignore or dismiss the connection. We are told that these diseases are rare.

    The human body has something called immune tolerance. This protects a person’s immune system against attacking itself. Therefore, HPV infection is also “immune tolerated,” which means it lays dormant for some time until it becomes cancerous.

    HPV vaccination was actually designed with this immune tolerance in mind.

    Given the human body’s built-in defenses against autoimmune conditions, vaccinology requires an immunogenic catalyst to get the body’s attention. This is the job of an adjuvant.

    An adjuvant is an ingredient used in a vaccine that the body recognizes as foreign. It is added to vaccines so that the body will mount a stronger immune response.

    The idea is that in attacking the adjuvant, the body will also recognize other vaccine ingredients (in this case, purified HPV proteins).

    In addition, the antigen dose is much higher than in natural infections and the capsids in the vaccine are directly exposed to systemic immune responses as opposed to the virus staying relatively hidden within the natural barrier of the skin following infection.

    The vaccine was well-designed to trigger an immune response, but this advantage may come at a cost: Generating antibodies to HPV proteins through vaccination could, theoretically, set the stage for an autoimmune attack.

    Link between HPV-vaccine-associated nervous system dysfunction and autoimmunity

    A December 2022 Danish and German study was designed to elucidate a possible mechanism of harm.

    The lead author, Dr. Jesper Mehlsen, a specialist in treating autoimmune conditions, noted that the HPV major capsid L1s antigen resembles human autonomic nerve receptors, including G-protein coupled receptors (GPCR).

    According to the researchers, in the past several years, case series of suspected vaccination side effects have pointed to three disease entities: POTS, myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and complex regional pain syndrome. These syndromes may be associated with neuroendocrine GPCR antibodies.

    From 2011 to 2018, researchers saw 845 patients (839 females, six males) with suspected side effects following the HPV4 vaccine. The control group included vaccinated people without side effects.

    Moderate to severe fatigue was recorded in 83.3% of the patients but in none of the controls.

    A high prevalence of symptoms, such as dizziness (91%), heart palpitations (71%), nausea (80%) and hyperactive bladder suggested that the patients were experiencing some kind of autonomic dysfunction.

    Autonomic dysfunction occurs when the part of the nervous system that controls well-being and balance does not function properly.

    Antibodies against the adrenergic ß-2-receptor and muscarinic M-2 receptors were also found significantly higher in patients.

    Many of the symptoms, including immune activation and autonomic dysregulation, could be mediated or aggravated by dysregulated autoantibodies against adrenergic receptors and impaired peripheral adrenergic function.

    The authors suggested that girls and women with probable side effects of HPV vaccination have symptoms and biological markers compatible with an autoimmune disease closely resembling that seen in ME/CFS.

    Interestingly, people who already had HPV infections at some point appeared to be at greater risk for adverse events following vaccination.

    The authors noted that “prior disease may precondition some individuals for vaccine-related adverse events.”

    They also noted that some of the adverse events resembled long-COVID symptoms.

    Universal HPV vaccination called into question

    Academic researcher at the University of British Columbia, Lucija Tomljenovic, and neuroscientist Christopher Shaw, who have closely looked into Gardasil, have argued that the risks from the vaccine seem to significantly outweigh the as-yet-unproven long-term benefits.

    In a 2012 comment published in the American Journal of Public Health, they took issue with “incomplete and inaccurate” data and poorly designed trials.

    Vaccination is unjustified if the vaccine carries any substantial risk, as healthy teenagers face little to no risk of dying from cervical cancer.

    Risk-benefit analyses must be conducted to ascertain the overall balance of benefits and harms on both individual and societal levels.

    The decline of public trust in COVID-19 vaccines significantly impacts vaccination rates against routine childhood diseases. This multiple-part series explores the international research done over the past two decades on the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine — believed to be one of the most effective vaccines developed to date.

    Summary of Key Facts

    This multiple-part series offers a thorough analysis of concerns raised about HPV vaccination following the global HPV campaign, which commenced in 2006.
    In the U.S., the HPV vaccine was reported to have a disproportionately higher percentage of adverse events of fainting and blood clots in the veins. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) acknowledges that fainting can happen following the HPV vaccine, and recommends sitting or lying down to get the shot, then waiting for 15 minutes afterward.
    International scientists found that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) logged a substantial increase in reports of premature ovarian failure from 1.4 per year before 2006 to 22.2 per year after the HPV vaccine approval, yielding a Proportional Reporting Ratio of 46.1.
    The HPV vaccine is widely regarded as one of the most effective vaccines developed to date. Nevertheless, safety issues have been raised following its approval, and in response, additional research has been published and litigation has been brought on behalf of those with a vaccine injury.

    In this HPV vaccine series, Parts I and II explain how the vaccine works and the evidence suggesting there may be legitimate safety concerns. The remaining parts present questions about real-world vaccine effectiveness and identify specific ingredients which may pose harm.

    The information presented here is drawn from peer-reviewed scientific literature from the U.S., Australia, Denmark, Sweden, France and Japan, as well as statistics published by public health agencies in each of these countries.

    More than 100 hours of research and internal peer review among scientists with experience in infectious diseases, virology, clinical trials and vaccine epidemiology have been invested in presenting this summary of the evidence.

    Large registry-based studies have identified plausible associations between HPV vaccination and autoimmune conditions, including premature ovarian insufficiency or premature ovarian failure, Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and chronic regional pain syndrome.

    While it is easy to be enthusiastic about recent advances in human vaccine technology, we should keep in mind that achieving real and lasting good health is much more than just the absence of a certain virus.

    What is HPV?

    According to the CDC, HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the U.S.

    HPV is a small DNA virus infecting human cutaneous epithelial cells in the mucosa and skin. More than 150 strains of the HPV virus have been identified.

    HPV infection is so common that the majority of sexually active people will get it at some point in their lives, even if they have only one or very few sexual partners. It can spread through sexual intercourse and oral sex. It can also pass between people through skin-to-skin contact, even by people who have no symptoms.

    HPV infection causes genital warts, some of which can turn into cancer. For the most part, however, HPV infection is benign. More than 90% of HPV infections cause no clinical symptoms and are self-limited, meaning the virus is cleared by the body via natural immunological defenses.

    HPV-associated cancers

    High-risk HPV types (types 16, 18 and others) can cause cervical cell abnormalities that are precursors to cancers.

    Type 16 is associated with approximately 50% of cervical cancers worldwide, and types 16 and 18 together are linked to 66% of cervical cancers.

    An additional five high-risk types, 31, 33, 45, 52 and 58, are linked with another 15% of cervical cancers and 11% of all HPV-associated cancers.

    Infection with a high-risk HPV type is associated with a higher chance of the development of cervical cancer but, by itself, HPV infection is not the sole risk factor to cause cancer. There are many other reasons, as discussed in this paper.

    Given the prevalence of infection, it is unsurprising that globally, cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer in women. In 2018, an estimated 570,000 women were diagnosed with cervical cancer worldwide and more than 300,000 died of the disease.

    In the U.S., nearly 50,000 new HPV-associated cancers occur annually, with women infected at a slightly higher rate than men.

    But in 9 out of 10 cases, HPV goes away within two years without causing health problems.

    Only persistent HPV infections may lead to cancer. These infections evade the immune system’s innate cell-mediated defenses.

    The incidence of cervical cancer can be controlled as a result of the implementation of routine testing and screening, including Pap and DNA tests.

    HPV vaccines

    Three HPV vaccines — bivalent HPV vaccine (Cervarix, 2vHPV), quadrivalent HPV vaccine (Gardasil, 4vHPV or HPV4) and 9-valent HPV vaccine (Gardasil 9, 9vHPV) — have been licensed by the FDA.

    The HPV vaccine uses recombinant technology to assemble the shell of the virus — L1 capsid protein. These viral-like particles do not contain the virus genome and are not infectious.

    Cervarix, developed by GlaxoSmithKline, is a bivalent vaccine against HPV types 16 and 18, that was pulled from the U.S. market in 2016 due to “very low market demand.”

    Merck’s original Gardasil vaccine was designed to prevent infections from four strains (types 6, 11, 16 and 18).

    On June 8, 2006, after the FDA’s fast-tracked review, Gardasil was approved for use in females ages 9 to 26 for the prevention of cervical, vulvar and vaginal cancers.

    According to the label accompanying the vaccine, the ingredients in Merck’s first Gardasil vaccine were proteins of HPV, amorphous aluminum hydroxyphosphate sulfate, yeast protein, sodium chloride, L-histidine, polysorbate 80, sodium borate and water for injection.

    On Oct. 16, 2009, the FDA approved Gardasil (HPV4) for use in boys ages 9 through 26 for the prevention of genital warts caused by HPV types 6 and 11, but not for cancer.

    In 2010, it approved Gardasil for the prevention of anal cancer in males and females ages 9 to 26.

    Four years later, the FDA approved an updated vaccine, Merck’s Gardasil 9, for use in girls ages 9 to 26 and boys ages 9 to 15 for the prevention of cervical, vaginal and anal cancers.

    Gardasil 9 contains the same ingredients as Gardasil, but offers protection against nine HPV strains, adding five additional types (HPV types 31, 33, 45, 52 and 58).

    The current HPV vaccination schedule recommended by the CDC is two doses for both boys and girls aged 11 or 12. However, it is approved for children as young as 9. The second dose is given 6 to 12 months after the first.

    For those aged 15 and above, a three-dose schedule is implemented at one- to two-month and six-month intervals, although antibody-level studies suggest that two doses are sufficient.

    The vaccine prompts the body to produce neutralizing antibodies against HPV. Antibody responses appear to peak seven months after the first dose (or one month after the third dose). The vaccine-induced antibody levels appear to be 10 to 100 times higher than those after natural infection.

    The high vaccine effectiveness (90 to 98%) against the fast-growing, abnormal cells which may cause precancerous lesions in people ages 16 to 26 suggested that the best timing for vaccination was to give it to patients before they became sexually active.

    HPV VAERS reports from 2 large countries

    U.S. HPV vaccine adverse events

    On Aug. 19, 2009, the Journal of the American Medical Association published an article authored by scientists from the FDA and CDC that reviewed the safety data for Gardasil for adverse events reported to VAERS between June 2006 through December 2008.

    During that time, there were 12,424 reports of adverse events. Of these, 772 (6.2%) were serious.

    VAERS is a passive surveillance system, which is subject to multiple limitations, including underreporting, unconfirmed diagnosis, lack of denominator data and no unbiased comparison groups.

    Nevertheless, it is a useful and important tool for detecting postmarket safety issues with vaccines.

    A disproportionately high percentage of Gardasil VAERS reports were of syncope (fainting) and venous thromboembolic events (blood clots in the veins) compared with other vaccines. There were 8.2 syncope events per 100,000 HPV doses and 0.2 venous thromboembolic events per 100,000 HPV doses reported, respectively.

    The Gardasil package insert includes a warning about fainting, fever, dizziness, nausea and headaches (page 1) and notes at least the following adverse reactions reported during postmarketing surveillance (section 6.2): Guillain-Barré syndrome, transverse myelitis, motor neuron disease, venous thromboembolic events, pancreatitis and autoimmune disorders.

    Australia HPV vaccines adverse events

    In 2007, Australia reported an annual adverse drug reaction rate of 7.3/100,000, the highest since 2003, representing an 85% increase from 2006.

    Per the analysis of the Adverse Drug Reactions System database by the Australian Department of Health and Aging, this increase was “almost entirely due to” reports following the national rollout of the three-dose HPV vaccination program for young females in April 2007; 705 of the 1,538 adverse drug reactions reported that year were from the Gardasil vaccine.

    Moreover, though people may take different vaccines other than HPV, the HPV vaccine was the only suspected vaccine to cause adverse reactions in 96% of records. Twenty-nine percent had causality ratings of “certain” or “probable” and 6% were defined as “serious.”

    Japan withdraws recommendation, vaccine acceptance plunged

    In 2013, the Japanese raised concerns about a variety of widely reported post-vaccination serious adverse events. This led the government to suspend recommending the HPV vaccine for six years. Vaccine acceptance of HPV in Japan plunged significantly after 2013, from 42.9% to 14.3%, or from 65.4% to 3.9%.

    Researchers around the world also started to investigate HPV safety. A World Health Organization (WHO) position paper released on July 14, 2017, concluded that the HPV vaccines were “extremely safe.”

    The same report estimated approximately 1.7 cases of anaphylaxis per million HPV doses, that no association with GBS was found, and that syncope (fainting) was “established as a common anxiety or stress-related reaction to the injection.”

    In the spring of 2022, Japan announced it was relaunching its HPV vaccination drive. Mainstream news outlets reported that for thousands of women, the cost of caution may have led to preventable HPV-induced cancers and an estimated 5,000 to 5,700 deaths.

    However, a true risk-benefit analysis would also consider the number of serious adverse events prevented by putting the program on hold. The question remains: Was Japan’s caution warranted, or should their national vaccination program have continued?

    Ovarian insufficiency

    Concerns that the vaccine may be negatively affecting fertility have been detailed in the scientific literature.

    In 2014, a peer-reviewed case series describing premature ovarian failure among Australian women following HPV vaccination was published in the Journal of Investigative Medicine.

    This prompted other researchers to systematically examine the VAERS data to see if there was a connection between premature ovarian failure and Gardasil. Their study found a “potential safety signal” and concluded that “further investigations are warranted.”

    VAERS analysis on ovarian failure

    Two recent publications based on VAERS reports (first study, second study) found that events with a probable autoimmune background were significantly more frequent after HPV vaccination compared to other vaccinations.

    The team of international scientists that did the second study evaluated reports between 1990 and 2018. They found that among the 228,341 premature ovarian failure reports, 0.1% was considered to be associated with HPV vaccination with a median age of 15 years and the time to onset was 20.5 days following vaccination.

    The primary symptoms were amenorrhea (80.4%) and premature menopause (15.3%).

    Most strikingly, the mean number of premature ovarian failure cases increased significantly from 1.4 per year prior to 2006 to 22.2 per year after the HPV vaccine was approved, with a proportional reporting ratio of 46.

    The investigators noted that the WHO and CDC declared the HPV vaccine safe regardless of lacking adequate research into safety concerns.

    For example, the authors note that in a CDC-sponsored VAERS study, 17 cases of premature ovarian failure were identified but 15 were excluded due to insufficient information to confirm the diagnosis. A separate observational study using the Vaccine Safety Datalink found no increased risk.

    But this study was too underpowered to detect a signal. In addition, a cross-sectional survey study using National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey data relied on an inaccurate measurement of premature ovarian failure and self-reported HPV vaccination.

    In summary, the researchers detected a strong safety signal even after accounting for a potential upswing in reports due to media coverage after the product launch (they refer to this as “notoriety bias”).

    Because VAERS is a passive reporting system, the data may be incomplete and are often unconfirmed by physicians. Therefore, this study cannot provide a definitive link between HPV vaccination and premature ovarian insufficiency or premature ovarian failure but does generate a hypothetical link.

    The authors of the second study conclude by insisting that “this signal warrants well-designed and appropriate epidemiological research.” They note that “if the signal is confirmed, the risk is small compared to the lifetime risk of cervical cancer.”

    However, the benefit-risk profile on an individual level is not uniform.

    Given the health impacts of premature ovarian insufficiency and premature ovarian failure — some of which may be irreversible — and the declining mortality rate for cervical cancer even in the prevaccine era, the risk-benefit profile for HPV vaccination remains unclear.

    3 case reports on ovarian insufficiency

    In the 2014 investigation mentioned above, a general practitioner in Australia noticed that three girls developed premature ovarian insufficiency following HPV4 vaccination.

    As a result of vaccination, each of the girls (ages 16, 16 and 18) had been prescribed oral contraception to treat menstrual cycle irregularities. Typically, women present with amenorrhea (no periods) or oligomenorrhea (infrequent periods) as the initial symptom of premature ovarian insufficiency.

    One girl had irregular periods following three doses of HPV vaccination. She then became amenorrheic and was diagnosed with premature ovarian insufficiency.

    Another girl’s periods were “like clockwork” until after the third HPV dose, which she received at age 15. Her first cycle after being vaccinated for the third time started two weeks late, and her next cycle was two months late. The final cycle began nine months later. The patient had no family history of early menopause.

    She was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure at 16. Lab work found hormone levels consistent with those of postmenopausal women, but her bone mineral density was normal.

    The authors of this case series noted that in preclinical studies of HPV4, the five-week-old rats only conceived one litter and the only available toxicology studies appear to be on the male rodent reproductive system.

    However, only two of three doses were administered prior to mating, and the overall fecundity was 95%, slightly lower than the control rats (98%) that received no vaccination prior to mating.

    The dose tolerance recommendations were based on an average weight of 50 kilograms for an adolescent girl but failed to take into account that HPV4 is administered to girls ages 9 to 13 years, who range in weight from 28 to 46 kilograms.

    Danish retrospective cohort study finds no link

    A 2021 study also evaluated premature ovarian insufficiency in a nationwide cohort of nearly 1 million Danish females ages 11 to 34 years.

    The researchers used Cox proportional hazard regression to detect an increased risk of premature ovarian insufficiency diagnosis by HPV4 vaccination status during the years 2007-2016. The hazard ratio for premature ovarian insufficiency (vaccinated versus unvaccinated) was 0.96.

    One limitation was that data on age at menarche (first menstruation) and oral contraceptive use were not available. Girls who had not yet reached menarche would not be at risk for premature ovarian insufficiency, of course.

    The authors excluded girls under age 15 in a sensitivity analysis and still found no signal, concluding that no association was found between HPV4 vaccination and premature ovarian insufficiency.

    The Truth About HPV Vaccination, Part 1: How Safe Is It, Really? This first installment in a multi-part series about the human papillomavirus, or HPV, vaccine explores peer-reviewed scientific literature that reveals serious safety concerns about a vaccine widely regarded as safe. The Epoch Times Miss a day, miss a lot. Subscribe to The Defender's Top News of the Day. It's free. By Yuhong Dong The decline of public trust in COVID-19 vaccines significantly impacts vaccination rates against routine childhood diseases. This multiple-part series explores the international research done over the past two decades on the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine — believed to be one of the most effective vaccines developed to date. Summary of Key Facts This multiple-part series offers a thorough analysis of concerns raised about HPV vaccination following the global HPV campaign, which commenced in 2006. In the U.S., the HPV vaccine was reported to have a disproportionately higher percentage of adverse events of fainting and blood clots in the veins.

Lab work found hormone levels consistent with those of postmenopausal women, but her bone mineral density was normal. The authors of this case series noted that in preclinical studies of HPV4, the five-week-old rats only conceived one litter and the only available toxicology studies appear to be on the male rodent reproductive system. However, only two of three doses were administered prior to mating, and the overall fecundity was 95%, slightly lower than the control rats (98%) that received no vaccination prior to mating. The dose tolerance recommendations were based on an average weight of 50 kilograms for an adolescent girl but failed to take into account that HPV4 is administered to girls ages 9 to 13 years, who range in weight from 28 to 46 kilograms. Danish retrospective cohort study finds no link A 2021 study also evaluated premature ovarian insufficiency in a nationwide cohort of nearly 1 million Danish females ages 11 to 34 years. The researchers used Cox proportional hazard regression to detect an increased risk of premature ovarian insufficiency diagnosis by HPV4 vaccination status during the years 2007-2016. The hazard ratio for premature ovarian insufficiency (vaccinated versus unvaccinated) was 0.96. One limitation was that data on age at menarche (first menstruation) and oral contraceptive use were not available. Girls who had not yet reached menarche would not be at risk for premature ovarian insufficiency, of course. The authors excluded girls under age 15 in a sensitivity analysis and still found no signal, concluding that no association was found between HPV4 vaccination and premature ovarian insufficiency.

  • Scientists Call for Global Moratorium on mRNA Vaccines, Immediate Removal From Childhood Schedule
    A review paper published last week in the journal Cureus is the first peer-reviewed paper to call for a global moratorium on the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. The authors say that reanalyzed data from the vaccine makers’ trials and high rates of serious post-injection injuries indicate the mRNA gene therapy vaccines should not have been authorized for use.

    Governments should endorse a global moratorium on mRNA vaccines until all questions about their safety have been thoroughly investigated, according to the authors of a new, peer-reviewed article on the COVID-19 vaccine trials and the global vaccination campaign published last week in Cureus, Journal of Medical Science.

    Cureus is a web-based peer-reviewed open-access general medical journal using prepublication peer review.

    The authors surveyed published research on the pharmaceutical companies’ vaccine trials and related adverse events. They also called for the COVID-19 vaccines to be removed immediately from the childhood immunization schedule.

    After the first reports from vaccine trials claimed they were 95% effective in preventing COVID-19, serious problems with method, execution and reporting in the trials became public, which the paper reviewed in detail.

    Evidence also shows the products never underwent adequate safety and toxicological testing, and since the vaccine rollout, researchers have identified a significant number of adverse events (AEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs).

    Authors M. Nathaniel Mead, Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., Russ Wolfinger, Ph.D., Jessica Rose, Ph.D., Kris Denhaerynck, Ph.D., Steve Kirsch and Dr. Peter McCullough detailed the vaccines’ potential serious harms to humans, vaccine control and processing issues, the mechanisms behind AEs, the immunological reasons for vaccine inefficacy and the mortality data from the registrational trials.

    They concluded, “Federal agency approval of the COVID-19 mRNA injectable products on a blanket-coverage population-wide basis had no support from an honest assessment of all relevant registrational data and commensurate consideration of risks versus benefits.”

    They also called for the vaccines to be immediately removed from the childhood immunization schedule and for the suspension of the boosters.

    “It is unethical and unconscionable to administer an experimental vaccine to a child who has a near-zero risk of dying from COVID-19 (IFR, 0.0003%) but a well-established 2.2% risk of permanent heart damage based on the best prospective data available,” they wrote.

    Finally, the authors called for a full investigation into misconduct by the pharmaceutical companies and the regulatory agencies.

    It is the first peer-reviewed study to call for a moratorium on the COVID-19 mRNA products, Rose told The Defender.

    “Once a proper assessment of the safety and efficacy claims was made herein — upon which the emergency use authorization (EUA)’s and ultimate final authorizations were granted — it was found that the COVID-19 injectable products were neither safe nor effective,” she added.

    According to McCollough, “mRNA should never have been authorized for human use.”

    Lead author Mead told The Defender, “Our view is that any risk-benefit analysis must consider how much the presumed benefit in terms of reduced COVID-19 related mortality is offset by the potential increase in vaccine-induced mortality.”

    Here are six takeaways from the review:

    1. The COVID-19 ‘vaccines’ are reclassified gene therapies that were rushed through the regulatory process in a historically unprecedented manner

    Before the seven-month authorization process for the mRNA vaccines, no vaccine had ever gone to market without undergoing testing of at least four years, with typical timelines averaging 10 years.

    To speed the process, the companies skipped preclinical studies of potential toxicity from multiple doses and cut the typical 6-12 month observation period for identifying longer-term adverse effects and the established 10-15-year period for monitoring for long-term effects such as cancer and autoimmune disorders, the authors wrote.

    The trials prioritized documenting effective symptom reduction over SAE and mortality. This was particularly concerning, the authors argued, because mRNA products are gene therapy products reclassified as vaccines and then given EUA for the first time ever for use against a viral disease.

    However, the gene therapies’ components have not been thoroughly evaluated for safety for use as vaccines.

    There is an uninvestigated and major concern that the mRNA could transform body cells into viral protein factories — with no off-switch — that produce the spike protein for a prolonged period causing chronic systemic inflammation and immune dysfunction.

    The spike protein in the vaccine, the authors said, is associated with more severe immunopathology and other AEs than the spike protein in the virus itself.

    The authors suggested that massive government investment in mRNA technology, including hundreds of millions before the pandemic and tens of billions once it began, meant, “U.S. federal agencies were strongly biased toward successful outcomes for the registrational trials.”

    The financial incentives along with political pressures to deliver a rapid solution likely influenced a series of flawed decisions that compromised the integrity of the trials and downplayed serious scientific concerns about risks with the technology, they added.

    2. Steps were taken in trials to overestimate vaccine efficacy

    Because the trials were designed to assess whether the mRNA vaccine reduced symptoms, they did not measure whether the vaccines prevented severe disease and death. Yet the vaccine makers repeatedly claimed that they do.

    “No large randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trials have ever demonstrated reductions in SARS-CoV-2 transmission, hospitalization, or death,” the authors wrote.

    Additionally, the number of people who contracted clinical COVID-19 in both the placebo and intervention groups was “too small to draw meaningful, pragmatic, or broad-sweeping conclusions with regard to COVID-19 morbidity and mortality.”

    Pfizer’s 95 % efficacy claims were based on 162 of 22,000 placebo recipients contracting PCR-confirmed COVID-19 compared to eight of 22,000 in the vaccine group. None of the placebo recipients died from COVID-19. In the Moderna trials, only one placebo death was attributed to COVID-19.

    There was also a much larger percentage of “suspected COVID-19 cases” in both groups, with participants showing COVID-19 symptoms but a negative PCR test. When factoring in those cases, measures of vaccine efficacy drop to about 19%.

    The trial subject pool was comprised of largely young and healthy individuals, excluding key groups — children, pregnant women, elderly and immunocompromised people — which can also obscure the vaccine’s actual efficacy and safety.

    Findings from reanalyses of data from the Pfizer trials can be interpreted as showing the vaccines made “no significant difference” in reducing all-cause mortality in the vaccinated versus unvaccinated groups at 20 weeks into the trial, the authors wrote.

    Even the six-month post-marketing data Pfizer presented to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed no reduction in all-cause mortality from the vaccine.

    The authors reanalyzed that data, adjusting the analysis of deaths to better account for the fact that when Pfizer unblinded the study people from the placebo group took the vaccine, and found the vaccine group had a higher mortality rate (0.105%) than the unvaccinated group (0.0799%), which they said was a conservative estimate.

    One of the most glaring issues with the registrational trials, they noted, was that they exclusively focused on measuring risk reduction — the ratio of COVID-19 symptom rates in the vaccine group versus the placebo group — rather than measuring absolute risk reduction, which is the likelihood someone will show COVID-19 symptoms relative to people in the population at large.

    According to FDA guidelines, accounting for both approaches is crucial to avoid the misguided use of pharmaceutical products — but the data were omitted, leading to an overestimation of an intervention’s clinical utility.

    While both vaccines touted an approximately 95% risk reduction figure as their efficacy figure, the absolute risk reductions for Pfizer and Moderna’s vaccines were 0.7% and 1.1% respectively.

    “A substantial number of individuals would need to be injected in order to prevent a single mild-to-moderate case of COVID-19,” the authors wrote.

    As an example, using a conservative estimate that 119 people would need to be vaccinated to prevent infection, and assuming that COVID-19 had a 0.23% infection fatality rate, they wrote that approximately 52,000 vaccinations would be necessary to prevent a single COVID-19-related death.

    However, “Given trial misconduct and data integrity problems … the true benefit is likely to be much lower,” they wrote.

    And, they added, one would need to assess that benefit along with harms, which they estimate to be 27 deaths per 100,000 doses of Pfizer. That means, using the most conservative estimates, “for every life saved, there were 14 times more deaths caused by the modified mRNA injections.”

    They also noted that post-rollout evidence confirmed the efficacy claims were overstated. For example, two large cohort Cleveland clinic studies showed the vaccine could not confer protection against COVID-19 — instead, in those trials, more vaccinated people were more likely to contract COVID-19.

    One study showed the risk of “breakthrough” infection was significantly higher among people who were boosted and that more vaccinations resulted in a greater risk of COVID-19.

    A second study showed adults who were not “up-to-date” with their shots had a 23% lower incidence of COVID-19 than their “up-to-date” colleagues.

    3. The trials underestimated the adverse events, including death, despite evidence in the data.

    Harms were also underreported and underestimated for a number of reasons, according to the authors, a practice that tends to be common in randomized industry-sponsored vaccine trials in general and “exceptionally evident” here.

    First, because Pfizer unblinded the trial within just a few weeks of the emergency use authorization and allowed people in the placebo group to take the vaccine, there was not sufficient time to identify late-occurring harms because there was no longer a control group.

    “Was this necessary, given that none of the deaths in the Pfizer trial were attributed to COVID-19 as the primary cause, and given the very low IFR [infection fatality rate] for a relatively healthy population?” they asked.

    Also, trial coordinators were “haphazard” in their approach to monitoring AEs. They prioritized documenting events thought to be related to COVID-19 rather than to the vaccines for the first seven days and only recorded “unsolicited” AEs for 30-60 days. After that period, even very SAEs, like death, were not recorded. Even for the AEs recorded in the first seven days, they only solicited data from 20% of the population.

    None of the trial data was independently verified. “Such secrecy may have enabled the industry to more easily present an inflated and distorted estimate of the genetic injections’ benefits, along with a gross underestimation of potential harms,” they wrote.

    Subsequent analysis by Michels et al. revealed that deaths and other SAEs — like life-threatening conditions, inpatient hospitalization or extension of hospitalization, persistent or significant disability/incapacity, a congenital anomaly, or a medically significant event — did occur after the cutoff period and before the FDA advisory meeting where emergency authorization was recommended.

    During the first 33 weeks of the Pfizer trials, 38 subjects died, according to Pfizer’s own data, although independent research by Michels et al. estimated that that number is only approximately 17% of the actual projected number due to missing data.

    And after that, the rate of deaths continued to increase. Michaels et al. found Pfizer failed to report a substantial increase in the number of deaths due to cardiovascular events. They also found a consistent pattern of reporting delays on the date of the death on subjects’ case reports.

    Overall, the review authors reported that there were “twice as many cardiac deaths proportionately among vaccinated compared to unvaccinated subjects in the Pfizer trials.”

    In their discussion, the authors wrote “Based on the extended Pfizer trial findings, our person-years estimate yielded a 31% increase in overall mortality among vaccine recipients, a clear trend in the wrong direction.”

    This raises serious red flags about how the registrational trials were conducted, Mead said. “Assessments of the safety profile of the COVID-19 modified mRNA injections warrant an objective precautionary perspective, any substantial upward trend in all cause mortality within the intervention arm of the trial population reflects badly on the intervention.”

    4. Numbers of SAEs in the trials and post-rollout reporting are well-documented, despite claims to the contrary.

    Both Pfizer and Moderna found about 125 SAEs per 100,000 vaccine recipients, or one SAE for every 800 vaccines. However, because the trials excluded more vulnerable people, the authors note, even higher proportions of SAEs would be expected in the general population.

    The Fraiman et al. reanalysis of the Pfizer trial data found a significant 36% higher risk of SAEs, which included deaths and many life-threatening conditions in the vaccinated participants.

    Official SAEs for other vaccines average around only 1-2 per million. Fraiman et alestimated 1,250 SEAs per million vaccines, exceeding that benchmark by “at least 600-fold.”

    After the vaccine rollout, analyses of two large drug safety reporting systems in the U.S. and Europe identified signals for myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolism, cardio-respiratory arrest, cerebral infarction, and cerebral hemorrhage associated with both mRNA vaccines, along with ischemic stroke.

    And millions of AEs have been reported to those systems.

    Another study by Skidmore et al. estimated the total number of fatalities from the vaccines in 2021 alone was 289,789. Autopsy studies have also provided additional evidence of serious harms, including evidence that most COVID-19 mRNA vaccine-related deaths resulted from injury to the cardiovascular system.

    In multiple autopsy studies, German pathologist Aren Burkhardt documented the presence of vaccine-mRNA-produced spike proteins in blood vessel walls and brain tissues. This research helps to explain documented vaccine-induced toxicities affecting the nervous, immune, reproductive and other systems.

    The Pfizer data also showed an overwhelming number of adverse effects. According to a confidential document released in August 2022, Pfizer had documented approximately 1.6 million AEs affecting nearly every organ system, and one-third of them were classified as serious.

    In Pfizer’s trial, Michels and colleagues found a nearly 4-fold increase (OR 3.7, 95%CI 1.02-13.2, p = 0.03) in serious cardiac events (e.g., heart attack, acute coronary syndrome) in the vaccine group. Neither the original trial report nor Pfizer’s Summary Clinical Safety report acknowledged or commented on this safety signal.

    “The serious adverse events are all well documented,” Mead said. “Yet it’s surprising to see so many in the medical field continue to ignore or dismiss outright the latter half of the equation when considering all cause mortality trends.”

    5. The failure to appropriately test for safety and toxicity poses serious problems.

    Researchers have raised concerns that the mRNA technology is inherently unstable and difficult to store, which leads to batch variability and contamination linked to different rates of AEs.

    Recent findings by McKernan et al. that found Pfizers’ mRNA vaccines are contaminated with plasmid DNA that shouldn’t be present — and wasn’t present in the vaccines used in the trials – raising serious safety issues.

    That’s because “Process 1,” used in the trials to generate the vaccines involved in vitro transcription of synthetic DNA — essentially a “clean” process. However, that process isn’t viable for mass production, so the manufacturers used “Process 2,” which involves using E. coli bacteria to replicate the plasmids.

    Removing plasmids E coli. can result in residual plasmids in the vaccines and the effects of their presence is unknown.

    McKernan’s work also revealed the presence of DNA from simian virus 40 (SV40), an oncogenic DNA virus originally isolated in 1960 from contaminated polio vaccines, induces lymphomas, brain tumors, and other malignancies in laboratory animals, raising other safety concerns.

    Researchers from Cambridge published a paper in Nature in December 2023, where they found an inherent defect in the modified RNA instructions for the spike protein in COVID-19 immunizations that causes the machinery that translates the gene to the spike protein to “slip” about 10% of the time

    This process creates “frameshifts” that cause cells to produce “off-target” proteins in addition to the spike. These proteins, which developers either failed to look for or did not report to regulators, cause undesirable immune responses whose long-term effects are unknown.

    6. There are many different possible biological mechanisms that cause AEs and vaccine ineffectiveness.

    The review points readers to a series of papers that explain a number of different theories to explain the high number of AEs from the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines.

    “The mechanisms of molecular mimicry, antigen cross-reactivity, pathogenic priming, viral reactivation, immune exhaustion, and other factors related to immune dysfunction all reinforce the biological plausibility for vaccine-induced pathogenesis of malignant and autoimmune diseases,” they wrote. And these mechanisms of immune activation are distinct from the body’s response to a viral infection.

    They also note the toxic effects of the primary adjuvant, PEG, and of the spike protein itself.

    They close their analysis of the vaccines with a complex explanation for the different immunological basis for protection provided by the vaccines versus natural immunity through infection. They explain the mechanisms for vaccine failure and problems generated by the ability for the mRNA vaccines to perpetuate the emergence of new variants.

This research helps to explain documented vaccine-induced toxicities affecting the nervous, immune, reproductive and other systems. The Pfizer data also showed an overwhelming number of adverse effects. According to a confidential document released in August 2022, Pfizer had documented approximately 1.6 million AEs affecting nearly every organ system, and one-third of them were classified as serious. In Pfizer’s trial, Michels and colleagues found a nearly 4-fold increase (OR 3.7, 95%CI 1.02-13.2, p = 0.03) in serious cardiac events (e.g., heart attack, acute coronary syndrome) in the vaccine group. Neither the original trial report nor Pfizer’s Summary Clinical Safety report acknowledged or commented on this safety signal. “The serious adverse events are all well documented,” Mead said. “Yet it’s surprising to see so many in the medical field continue to ignore or dismiss outright the latter half of the equation when considering all cause mortality trends.” 5. The failure to appropriately test for safety and toxicity poses serious problems. Researchers have raised concerns that the mRNA technology is inherently unstable and difficult to store, which leads to batch variability and contamination linked to different rates of AEs. Recent findings by McKernan et al. that found Pfizers’ mRNA vaccines are contaminated with plasmid DNA that shouldn’t be present — and wasn’t present in the vaccines used in the trials – raising serious safety issues. That’s because “Process 1,” used in the trials to generate the vaccines involved in vitro transcription of synthetic DNA — essentially a “clean” process. However, that process isn’t viable for mass production, so the manufacturers used “Process 2,” which involves using E. coli bacteria to replicate the plasmids. Removing plasmids E coli. can result in residual plasmids in the vaccines and the effects of their presence is unknown. McKernan’s work also revealed the presence of DNA from simian virus 40 (SV40), an oncogenic DNA virus originally isolated in 1960 from contaminated polio vaccines, induces lymphomas, brain tumors, and other malignancies in laboratory animals, raising other safety concerns. Researchers from Cambridge published a paper in Nature in December 2023, where they found an inherent defect in the modified RNA instructions for the spike protein in COVID-19 immunizations that causes the machinery that translates the gene to the spike protein to “slip” about 10% of the time This process creates “frameshifts” that cause cells to produce “off-target” proteins in addition to the spike. These proteins, which developers either failed to look for or did not report to regulators, cause undesirable immune responses whose long-term effects are unknown. 6. There are many different possible biological mechanisms that cause AEs and vaccine ineffectiveness. The review points readers to a series of papers that explain a number of different theories to explain the high number of AEs from the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. “The mechanisms of molecular mimicry, antigen cross-reactivity, pathogenic priming, viral reactivation, immune exhaustion, and other factors related to immune dysfunction all reinforce the biological plausibility for vaccine-induced pathogenesis of malignant and autoimmune diseases,” they wrote. And these mechanisms of immune activation are distinct from the body’s response to a viral infection. They also note the toxic effects of the primary adjuvant, PEG, and of the spike protein itself. They close their analysis of the vaccines with a complex explanation for the different immunological basis for protection provided by the vaccines versus natural immunity through infection. They explain the mechanisms for vaccine failure and problems generated by the ability for the mRNA vaccines to perpetuate the emergence of new variants. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/scientists-global-moratorium-mrna-vaccines-removal-childhood-schedule/ https://donshafi911.blogspot.com/2024/01/scientists-call-for-global-moratorium.html

    Scientists Call for Global Moratorium on mRNA Vaccines, Immediate Removal From Childhood Schedule
    A review paper published last week in the journal Cureus is the first peer-reviewed paper to call for a global moratorium on the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. The authors say that reanalyzed data from the vaccine makers’ trials and high rates of serious post-injection injuries indicate the mRNA gene therapy vaccines should not have been authorized for use.

  • Researchers urge governments to endorse a global moratorium on mRNA injections in a newly released science paper
    Rhoda WilsonJanuary 26, 2024
    In a paper published on Wednesday, researchers re-analysed the Pfizer covid “vaccine” phase 3 trial data and found more serious adverse events among those in the vaccine group.

    This is not what published reports from Pfizer’s phase 3 trials said. “Many key trial findings were either misreported or omitted entirely from published reports,” the researchers said.

    Seven researchers – M. Nathaniel Mead, Stephanie Seneff, Russ Wolfinger, Jessica Rose, Kris Denhaerynck, Steve Kirsch and Peter A. McCullough – set out to re-analyse Pfizer’s trial data because:

    our understanding of covid vaccinations and their impact on health and mortality has evolved substantially since the first vaccine rollouts; and,
    problems with the methods, execution, and reporting of the pivotal phase 3 trials have emerged.
    On Wednesday, they published their findings in a peer-reviewed paper titled ‘Covid-19 mRNA Vaccines: Lessons Learned from the Registrational Trials and Global Vaccination Campaign’. The paper was published in Cureus, a journal of medical science.

    “Re-analysis of the Pfizer trial data identified statistically significant increases in serious adverse events (SAEs) in the vaccine group,” the researchers wrote.

    Adding, “Numerous SAEs were identified following the Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA), including death, cancer, cardiac events, and various autoimmune, haematological, reproductive, and neurological disorders.”

    The EUA the researchers are referring to is the authorisation granted to Pfizer by the US Food and Drugs Administration (“FDA”).

    As the paper noted, Pfizer’s covid “vaccines” never underwent adequate safety and toxicological testing according to previously established scientific standards. It goes on to detail the absolute risk reduction, the underreporting of harms during trials, the shifting narratives and illusions of protection, quality control and manufacturing process-related impurities, the biological mechanisms underlying adverse events (“AEs”) and why, based on how our immune systems work, the vaccine is ineffective.

    Concluding their comprehensive review, the researchers wrote:

    Given the extensive, well-documented SAEs and unacceptably high harm-to-reward ratio, we urge governments to endorse a global moratorium on the modified mRNA products until all relevant questions pertaining to causality, residual DNA, and aberrant protein production are answered.

    The paper noted that the gene therapy products (“GTPs”) vaccine platform has been studied for over 30 years as an experimental cancer treatment, with the terms “gene therapy” and “mRNA vaccination” often used interchangeably.

    “Although we employ the terms ‘vaccine’ and ‘vaccination’ throughout this paper, the covid-19 mRNA products are also accurately termed gene therapy products (GTPs) because, in essence, this was a case of GTP technology being applied to vaccination,” they wrote.

    As such, throughout their analysis, the terms “vaccines” and “vaccinations” are used interchangeably with injections, inoculations, biologicals, or simply, products.

    The following are some excerpts from the paper. You can read the full paper HERE.

    Serious Harms Revealed after EUA was Granted

    In this narrative review, we revisit the registrational trials and review analyses of the AEs from these trials and other relevant studies. Most of the revelations have only recently come to light, due to the past few years of extensive censorship of healthcare professionals and research scientists who challenged the prevailing narrative set forth by the vaccine enterprise.

    Despite the rhetoric, no large randomised double-blind placebo-controlled trials have ever demonstrated reductions in SARS-CoV-2 transmission, hospitalisation or death.

    The study designs for the pivotal trials that led to the EUA were never intended to determine whether the mRNA inoculations could help prevent severe disease or premature death.

    It was only after the EUA that the serious biological consequences of rushing the trials became evident, with numerous cardiovascular, neurological, reproductive, haematological, malignant, and autoimmune SAEs identified and published in the peer-reviewed medical literature.

    Moreover, the covid mRNA vaccines produced via Process 1 and evaluated in the trials were not the same products eventually distributed worldwide; all of the covid-19 mRNA products released to the public were produced via Process 2 and have been shown to have varying degrees of DNA contamination.

    The process-related impurities were absent from the covid-19 mRNA products used in the registrational trials. Virtually all doses used in those trials originated from “clinical batches” produced using what is known as Process 1. As a post-authorisation emergency supply measure for global distribution, however, a method much more suitable for mass production known as Process 2 was devised utilising bacterial plasmid DNA.

    The failure of regulatory authorities to heretofore disclose process-related impurities (e.g., SV40) has further increased concerns regarding safety and quality control oversight of mRNA vaccine manufacturing processes.

    Incentives Played a Key Role in Undermining Scientific Evaluation

    Political and financial incentives may have played a key role in undermining the scientific evaluation process leading up to the EUA.

    Before the pandemic, the US National Institutes of Health invested $116 million (35%) in mRNA vaccine technology, the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (“BARDA”) had invested $148 million (44%), while the Department of Defence (“DOD”) contributed $72 million (21%) to mRNA vaccine development.

    BARDA and the DOD also collaborated closely in the co-development of Moderna’s mRNA vaccine, dedicating over $18 billion, which included guaranteed vaccine purchases. This entailed pre-purchasing hundreds of millions of mRNA vaccine doses, alongside direct financial support for the clinical trials and the expansion of Moderna’s manufacturing capabilities.

    Once the pandemic began, $29.2 billion – 92% of which came from US public funds – was dedicated to the purchase of covid-19 mRNA products; another $2.2 billion (7%) was channelled into supporting clinical trials, and $108 million (less than 1%) was allocated for manufacturing and basic research.

    Using US taxpayer money to purchase so many doses in advance would suggest that, before the EUA process, US federal agencies were strongly biased toward successful outcomes for the registrational trials.

    Established Vaccine Testing Period Abolished

    Before the rapid authorisation process, no vaccine had been permitted for market release without undergoing a testing period of at least four years. Previous timeframes for phase 3 trial testing averaged 10 years. Health departments have stated that 10-15 years is the normal timeframe for evaluating vaccine safety.

    The previously established 10-15-year timeframe for clinical evaluation of vaccines was deemed necessary to ensure adequate time for monitoring the development of AEs such as cancers and autoimmune disorders.

    Pfizer’s covid vaccine completed the process in seven months.

    Established Safety Standards Abolished

    With the covid vaccines, safety was never assessed in a manner commensurate with previously established scientific standards, as numerous safety testing and toxicology protocols typically followed by the FDA were sidestepped.

    Historical accounts bear witness to instances where vaccines were prematurely introduced to the market under immense pressure, only to reveal disabling or even fatal AEs later on. Examples include the 1955 contamination of polio vaccines, instances of Guillain-Barré syndrome observed in flu vaccine recipients in 1976, and the connection between narcolepsy and a specific flu vaccine in 2009.

    Against this backdrop, it is not surprising that so many medical and public health experts voiced concerns about covid mRNA vaccines bypassing the normal safety testing process.

    Concerns about inadequate safety testing extend beyond the usual regulatory approval standards and practices.

    As there were no specific regulations at the time of the rapid approval process, regulatory agencies quickly “adapted” the products, generalised the definition of “vaccine” to accommodate them, and then authorised them for EUA for the first time ever against a viral disease.

    Due to the GTPs’ reclassification as vaccines, none of their components have been thoroughly evaluated for safety. The main concern, in a nutshell, is that the covid mRNA products may transform body cells into viral protein factories that have no off-switch – i.e., no built-in mechanism to stop or regulate such proliferation – with the spike protein (“S-protein”) being generated for prolonged periods, causing chronic, systemic inflammation and immune dysfunction.

    When the S-protein enters the bloodstream and disseminates systemically, it may become a contributing factor to diverse AEs in susceptible people.

    Enforce a Global Moratorium

    Given the well-documented SAEs and unacceptable harm-to-reward ratio, we urge governments to endorse and enforce a global moratorium on these modified mRNA products until all relevant questions pertaining to causality, residual DNA, and aberrant protein production are answered.

    Khutbah Jumaat

    26 Januari 2024 / 14 Rejab 1445H

    Ilmu Fikah: Mekanisma Pemahaman Syariat Islam




    Sidang Jumaat yang dirahmati Allah,

    Khatib mengajak dirinya serta para tetamu Allah Sekalian agar bersama mempertingkatkan Ketakwaan kepada Allah (s.w.t). Marilah kita laksanakan segala perintah-Nya dan jauhi tegahan-Nya. Semoga kita dikurniakan kebijaksanaan menjalani kehidupan duniawi berlandaskan ilmu agama yang sahih. Amin.

    Muslimin dan Muslimat yang dikasihi,

    Ketika baginda Nabi (s.a.w.) mengutus Mu’az Bin Jabal ke Yaman, baginda bertanya kepadanya: “Bagaimanakah kamu akan membimbing Muslimin di sana ketika berhadapan situasi baru, dan tiada panduannya daripada Al-Quran dan Sunnah?” Mu’az menjawab, “Aku berijtihad dengan pendapatku dan tidak akan menyimpang (daripada dasar umum dalam Kitab Allah dan Sunnah Rasulullah)”. Lalu baginda bersabda:

    الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي وَفَّقَ رَسُولَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ لِمَا يُرْضِي رَسُولَ اللَّهِ

    Yang bermaksud: “Segala puji bagi Allah yang telah memberi petunjuk kepada utusan Rasul dengan apa yang diredai oleh Rasulullah.” (Hadis riwayat Imam Tirmizi).

    Apakah pengajaran dari kisah tadi? Para sahabat dididik agar mampu berijtihad atau memberikan pandangan dalam permasalahan hukum kerana mereka telah dibekalkan dengan kefahaman agama yang baik. Ini bererti mereka memiliki panduan yang jelas dalam memahami dan mencerna hukum agama dalam kehidupan seharian.

    Para jemaah yang dikasihi,

    Fikah atau Fiqh adalah antara disiplin ilmu yang wujud dalam sains Islam. Ia secara khusus membahas persoalan hukum yang mengatur berbagai aspek kehidupan manusia, baik kehidupan peribadi, bermasyarakat, mahupun kehidupan manusia dengan Allah.

    Ulama mazhab seperti imam Malik, imam Shafi’i dan yang lainnya menggubal kaedah dan metodologi dalam membahaskan sesuatu permasalahan hukum. Sebagai contoh, ada mazhab yang menjadikan amalan penduduk Madinah pada awal Islam sebagai salah satu sandaran dalam pertimbangan hukum. Ada pula yang membezakan antara hukum fardu dan wajib berpandukan tahap kekuatan dalil hukum. Kesimpulannya, panduan dan dasar yang dipegang oleh para ulama adalah berdasarkan kajian, penelitian dan pendekatan dalam memahami syariat Islam.

    Saudara dan Saudari,

    Lapangan ilmu fikah mempersembahkan kemampuan dan kehebatan intelektual ulama silam dalam menganalisa hukum-hakam. Terkadang, wujud perbezaan pandangan pada satu masalah yang sama kerana kerencaman analisis. Ini biasanya berlaku dalam isu-isu cabang atau sampingan, dan bukan pada isu pokok atau prinsip hukum itu sendiri. Sebagai contoh, perbahasan ulama berkaitan menyapu kepala ketika berwuduk berpandukan firman Allah (s.w.t.) dalam surah Al-Ma’idah, ayat 6:




    Yang bermaksud: “Sapulah kepala kamu.”

    Ada ulama berpandangan perkataan “al-mash” di dalam ayat tadi bererti menyapu sebahagian kepala. Mazhab Hanafi sebagai contoh, berpandangan menyapu seperempat kepala. Segelintir yang lain pula berpendapat agar dibasuh sepenuhnya.

    Setiap daripada pandangan ini mempunyai hujah dan dasar yang berpaksi pada metodologi yang muktabar. Renungilah pandangan mereka dengan lensa ilmu, mudah-mudahan kita dapat memahami dan menghargai pandangan para ulama kita dalam sesuatu isu yang dibincangkan. Perbezaan pendapat antara manusia adalah lumrah kehidupan. Sama-samalah kita hayati firman Allah (s.w.t.) yang berbunyi:




    Yang bermaksud: “Dan sekiranya Tuhanmu (wahai Muhammad s.a.w.) menghendaki, tentulah Ia menjadikan umat manusia semuanya menurut agama yang satu. (Tetapi Dia tidak berbuat demikian) dan kerana itulah mereka terus-menerus berselisihan.” (Surah Hud, ayat 118).

    Semoga Allah (s.w.t.) mengurniakan kefahaman dalam agama Islam kepada kita, dan mengolongkan kita dalam kalangan mereka yang memperoleh kebaikan di dunia ini dan di akhirat nanti. Amin Ya Rabbal ‘Alamin.

Lalu baginda bersabda: الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي وَفَّقَ رَسُولَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ لِمَا يُرْضِي رَسُولَ اللَّهِ Yang bermaksud: “Segala puji bagi Allah yang telah memberi petunjuk kepada utusan Rasul dengan apa yang diredai oleh Rasulullah.” (Hadis riwayat Imam Tirmizi). Apakah pengajaran dari kisah tadi? Para sahabat dididik agar mampu berijtihad atau memberikan pandangan dalam permasalahan hukum kerana mereka telah dibekalkan dengan kefahaman agama yang baik. Ini bererti mereka memiliki panduan yang jelas dalam memahami dan mencerna hukum agama dalam kehidupan seharian. Para jemaah yang dikasihi, Fikah atau Fiqh adalah antara disiplin ilmu yang wujud dalam sains Islam. Ia secara khusus membahas persoalan hukum yang mengatur berbagai aspek kehidupan manusia, baik kehidupan peribadi, bermasyarakat, mahupun kehidupan manusia dengan Allah. Ulama mazhab seperti imam Malik, imam Shafi’i dan yang lainnya menggubal kaedah dan metodologi dalam membahaskan sesuatu permasalahan hukum. Sebagai contoh, ada mazhab yang menjadikan amalan penduduk Madinah pada awal Islam sebagai salah satu sandaran dalam pertimbangan hukum. Ada pula yang membezakan antara hukum fardu dan wajib berpandukan tahap kekuatan dalil hukum. Kesimpulannya, panduan dan dasar yang dipegang oleh para ulama adalah berdasarkan kajian, penelitian dan pendekatan dalam memahami syariat Islam. Saudara dan Saudari, Lapangan ilmu fikah mempersembahkan kemampuan dan kehebatan intelektual ulama silam dalam menganalisa hukum-hakam. Terkadang, wujud perbezaan pandangan pada satu masalah yang sama kerana kerencaman analisis. Ini biasanya berlaku dalam isu-isu cabang atau sampingan, dan bukan pada isu pokok atau prinsip hukum itu sendiri. Sebagai contoh, perbahasan ulama berkaitan menyapu kepala ketika berwuduk berpandukan firman Allah (s.w.t.) dalam surah Al-Ma’idah, ayat 6: Yang bermaksud: “Sapulah kepala kamu.” Ada ulama berpandangan perkataan “al-mash” di dalam ayat tadi bererti menyapu sebahagian kepala. Mazhab Hanafi sebagai contoh, berpandangan menyapu seperempat kepala. Segelintir yang lain pula berpendapat agar dibasuh sepenuhnya. Setiap daripada pandangan ini mempunyai hujah dan dasar yang berpaksi pada metodologi yang muktabar. Renungilah pandangan mereka dengan lensa ilmu, mudah-mudahan kita dapat memahami dan menghargai pandangan para ulama kita dalam sesuatu isu yang dibincangkan. Perbezaan pendapat antara manusia adalah lumrah kehidupan. Sama-samalah kita hayati firman Allah (s.w.t.) yang berbunyi: Yang bermaksud: “Dan sekiranya Tuhanmu (wahai Muhammad s.a.w.) menghendaki, tentulah Ia menjadikan umat manusia semuanya menurut agama yang satu. (Tetapi Dia tidak berbuat demikian) dan kerana itulah mereka terus-menerus berselisihan.” (Surah Hud, ayat 118). Semoga Allah (s.w.t.) mengurniakan kefahaman dalam agama Islam kepada kita, dan mengolongkan kita dalam kalangan mereka yang memperoleh kebaikan di dunia ini dan di akhirat nanti. Amin Ya Rabbal ‘Alamin. أَقُوْلُ قَوْلِي هَذَا وَأَسْتَغْفِرُ اللهَ العَظِيْمَ لِي وَلَكُمْ، فَاسْتَغْفِرُوهُ إِنَّهُ هُوَ الغَفُوْرُ الرَّحِيْم KHUTBAH KEDUA الحَمْدُ للهِ حَمْدًا كَثِيرًا كَمَا أَمَرَ، وَأَشْهَدُ أَن لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ سَيِّدَنَا مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ. اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِهِ وَأَصْحَابِهِ أَجْمَعِينَ. أَمَّا بَعْدُ، فَيَا عِبَادَ الله، اِتَّقُوا اللهَ تَعَالَى فِيمَا أَمَرَ، وَانتَهُوا عَمَّا نَهَاكُم عَنْهُ وَزَجَرَ. أَلَا صَلُّوا وَسَلِّمُوا عَلَى النَّبِيِّ الْمُصْطَفَى، فَقَدْ أَمَرَنَا اللهُ بِذَلِكَ حَيْثُ قَال فِي كِتَابِهِ العَزِيزِ: إِنَّ اللهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَـا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا. اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكْ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ. وَارْضَ اللَّهُمَّ عَنِ الخُلَفَاءِ الرَّاشِدِينَ المَهْدِيِّينَ أَبِي بَكْرٍ وَعُمَرَ وَعُثْمَانَ وَعَلِيِّ، وَعَن بَقِيَّةِ الصَّحَابَةِ وَالقَرَابَةِ وَالتَّابِعِينَ، وَتَابِعِي التَّابِعِينَ، وَعَنَّا مَعَهُم وَفِيهِم بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ. اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِلمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالمُؤْمِنَاتِ، وَالمُسْلِمِينَ وَالمُسْلِمَاتِ، الأَحْيَاءِ مِنهُم وَالأَمْوَاتِ. اللَّهُمَّ ادْفَعْ عَنَّا البَلَاءَ وَالوَبَاءَ وَالزَّلَازِلَ وَالمِحَنَ، مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَا وَمَا بَطَنَ، عَن بَلَدِنَا خَاصَّةً، وَسَائِرِ البُلْدَانِ عَامَّةً، يَا رَبَّ العَالَمِينَ. اَللَّهُمَّ انْصُرْ إِخْوَانَنَا اْلمُسْتَضْعَفِيْنَ فِي غَزَّة وَفِي فِلِسْطِينَ وَفِيْ كُلِّ مَكَانٍ عَامَّةً، يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ. اللَّهُمَّ بَدِّلْ خَوْفَهُمْ أَمْنًا، وَحُزْنَهُمْ فَرَحًا، وَهَمَّهُمْ فَرَجًا، يَا رَبَّ العَالَمِينَ. رَبَّنَا آتِنَا فِي الدُّنيَا حَسَنَةً، وَفِي الآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً، وَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ. عِبَادَ اللهِ، إِنَّ اللهَ يَأْمُرُ بِالعَدْلِ وَالإِحْسَانِ وَإِيتَاءِ ذِي القُرْبَى، وَيَنْهَى عَنِ الفَحْشَاءِ وَالمُنكَرِ وَالبَغْيِ، يَعِظُكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ، فَاذكُرُوا اللهَ العَظِيمَ يَذْكُرْكُمْ، وَاشْكُرُوهُ عَلَى نِعَمِهِ يَزِدْكُمْ، وَاسْأَلُوهُ مِن فَضْلِهِ يُعْطِكُم، وَلَذِكْرُ اللهِ أَكْبَرُ، وَاللهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَصْنَعُونَ. https://muslimsg.app/v1/khutbah_contents/459

  • ☆~ CARA MANDI RASULULLAH SAW ~☆
    Yang diajarkan oleh Baginda...

    1. Bermula dari segayung siram di telapak kaki
    2. Segayung di betis
    3. Segayung di paha
    4. Segayung di perut
    5. Segayung di bahu
    6. Berhentilah sejenak 5-10 saat/detik.
    ●Kita akan merasakan seperti uap/angin yang keluar dari
    ubun-ubun bahkan meremang, setelah itu lanjutkan
    dengan mandi seperti biasa.

    ●Hikmahnya:
    Seperti pada gelas yang diisi air panas kemudian kita isi
    dengan air sejuk. Apa yang terjadi?
    Gelas akan retak !!!
    ●Jika tubuh kita.... apa yang retak?
    Suhu tubuh kita cenderung panas dan air itu sejuk, maka
    yang terjadi jika kita mandi langsung menyiram pada
    badan atau kepala, angin yang harusnya keluar jadi
    terperangkap atau kadang membawa maut karena
    pecahnya pembuluh darah.

    ●Maka sebab itu kita sering menjumpai orang jatuh di
    bilik mandi tiba-tiba kena 'stroke'. Boleh jadi kita sering
    masuk angin karena cara mandi kita yang salah. Boleh
    jadi kita sering migrain karena cara mandi yang salah.

    ●Cara mandi ini baik bagi semua umur
    terutama yang mempunyai sakit diabetes, darah tinggi, kolesterol dan migrain/sakit kepala sebelah.
    Insya Allah dpt ber angsur sembuh...

    IBU BAPA RASULULLAH SAW :
    AYAH : Abdullah bin Abdul Muttalib
    IBU : Āminah bt Wahab


    SEJARAH RINGKAS :

    DILAHIRKAN DI MAKKAH DAN DIJAGA :
    Semenanjung Arab,
    Baginda adalah anak yatim piatu sejak kecil lagi dimana baginda dijaga oleh
    1. datuknya, Abdul Muttalib bin Hasyim dan 2. seterusnya bapa saudara baginda,
    Abu Talib bin Abdul Muttalib.

    Baginda juga pernah bekerja sebagai pengembala kambing dan saudagar serta perkahwinan pertamanya adalah ketika berusia 25 tahun dimana baginda telah bernikah dengan Khadijah binti Khuwailid (40 tahun).

    Keluarga baginda mengamalkan ajaran Tauhid yang dibawa oleh Nabi Isa AS daripada Allah SWT.


    WAHYU PERTAMA :
    Ketika Nabi Muhammad berumur 40 tahun, baginda telah menerima wahyu yang pertama daripada Tuhan melalui malaikat Jibril (malaikat yang sama menyampaikan wahyu Allah SWT kepada 5 orang Rasul Ulul Azmi) ketika sedang berada di Gua Hira.


    BERDAKWAH :
    Tiga tahun setelah kejadian itu,
    baginda mula berdakwah secara terbuka kepada penduduk Makkah dengan mengatakan
    "Tuhan itu Esa"
    dan hendaklah menyerahkan diri sepenuhnya kepada Allah SWT
    (secara harfiahnya membawa maksud Islam) dan ia adalah satu cara hidup (الدين ad-Din) yang diterima Allah SWT sahaja.

    Nabi Muhammad SAW menerima beberapa orang pengikut pada awalnya yang terdiri daripada pelbagai golongan.

    Ajaran yang dibawa oleh baginda mendapat tentangan yang hebat dalam kalangan penduduk Makkah malahan mereka dilayan dengan teruk dan zalim.
    Oleh itu, Nabi Muhammad SAW telah menghantar beberapa orang pengikutnya ke Habsyah pada 614 M


    HIJRAH :
    sebelum baginda dan pengikutnya lain di Makkah Hijrah ke Madinah
    (dahulu dikenali sebagai Yathrib) pada tahun 622 M.

    Peristiwa penghijrahan Baginda itu menandakan permulaan bagi kalendar Islam atau takwim Hijrah.

    Di Madinah, Baginda telah menyatukan semua suku kaum dibawah Piagam Madinah.


    KEMBALI KE MEKKAH SEMULA :
    Setelah bersengketa dengan penduduk Makkah selama 8 tahun,
    Baginda membawa 10,000 pengikutnya ke Makkah serta membukanya.
    Nabi Muhammad SAW dan para pengikutnya telah memusnahkan patung berhala yang terdapat di Makkah.

    KEWAFATAN RASULULLAH SAW :
    Pada tahun 632 M, beberapa bulan selepas Haji Wida atau Haji Perpisahan,
    Nabi Muhammad SAW telah jatuh sakit
    lalu wafat.

    Ketika kematian Baginda,
    hampir seluruh Semenanjung Arab berada di bawah naungan Islam dan bersatu dengan utuhnya
    (6 Mei 570M atau pun 20 April/26 April 571M).


    KETURUNAN IBU DAN AYAH
    RASULULLAH SAW :
    Ibu Baginda,
    iaitu Aminah binti Wahab,
    adalah anak perempuan kepada
    Wahab bin Abdul Manaf dari keluarga Zahrah.

    Ayah Baginda,
    iaitu Abdullah,
    ialah anak kepada Abdul Muthalib. Keturunannya dikatakan bersusur galur dari Nabi Ismail, anak kepada Nabi Ibrahim kira-kira dalam keturunan keempat puluh.

    Ayah Baginda telah meninggal sebelum kelahiran Baginda.
    Sementara ibu Baginda meninggal ketika Baginda berusia kira-kira enam tahun, menjadikannya seorang anak yatim piatu.


    IBU SUSUAN RASULULLAH SAW :
    Menurut tradisi keluarga atasan Mekkah, Baginda telah dipelihara oleh seorang ibu angkat

    IBU SUSU :
    wanita yang menyusukan baginda yang bernama Halimahtus Sa'adiah di kampung halamannya di pergunungan selama beberapa tahun.

    RASULULLAH SAW DI JAGA :
    Dalam tahun-tahun itu, baginda telah dibawa ke Makkah untuk mengunjungi ibu Baginda Aminah binti Wahab.

    Setelah ibu Baginda wafat,
    Baginda dijaga oleh
    datuknya, Abdul Muthalib.

    Apabila datuknya meninggal,
    Baginda dijaga oleh bapa saudara Baginda, Abu Talib.

    Ketika inilah Baginda sering kali membantu mengembala kambing-kambing bapa saudara Baginda di sekitar Mekkah dan kerap menemani bapa saudara Baginda dalam urusan perdagangan ke Syam (Syria).


    MASA REMAJA RASULULLAH SAW :
    Dalam masa remaja Baginda,
    Nabi Muhammad SAW percaya sepenuhnya dengan keesaan Allah SWT.

    Baginda hidup dengan cara amat sederhana dan membenci sifat-sifat angkuh dan bongkak.
    Baginda mengamalkan ajaran-ajaran Nabi-Nabi terdahulu terutamanya
    Nabi Isa Al-Masih.

    YANG RASULULLAH SAW SAYANG :
    Baginda menyayangi
    1. orang-orang miskin,
    2. para janda dan
    3. anak-anak yatim serta berkongsi penderitaan mereka dengan berusaha menolong mereka.

    Baginda juga menghindari semua kejahatan yang menjadi amalan biasa di kalangan para belia pada masa itu seperti berjudi, meminum minuman keras, berkelakuan kasar dan lain-lain,
    sehingga Baginda dikenali sebagai
    As Saadiq (yang benar) dan
    Al Amin (yang amanah).

    Baginda sentiasa dipercayai sebagai orang tengah kepada dua pihak yang bertelingkah di kampung halamannya di Mekkah.


    BAGINDA BERUMAHTANGGA :
    Ketika berusia kira-kira 25 tahun,
    ayah saudara Baginda menyarankan Baginda untuk bekerja dengan kafilah
    (rombongan perniagaan) yang dimiliki oleh seorang janda yang bernama Khadijah. Baginda diterima bekerja dan bertanggungjawab terhadap pelayaran ke Syam (Syria).
    Baginda mengelolakan urusniaga itu dengan penuh bijaksana dan pulang dengan keuntungan luar biasa.

    ISTERI DAN ANAK RASULULLAH SAW PERTAMA:
    Khadijah begitu tertarik dengan kejujuran dan watak peribadinya yang mendorong beliau untuk menawarkan diri untuk mengahwini Baginda.
    Baginda menerima lamarannya dan perkahwinan mereka adalah bahagia.

    Mereka dikurniakan 6 orang anak
    (2 lelaki dan 4 perempuan) tetapi kedua-dua anak lelaki mereka,
    Qasim dan Abdullah meninggal semasa kecil.
    Manakala anak perempuan baginda ialah Ruqayyah, Zainab, Ummu Kalsum dan Fatimah az-Zahra.

    Khadijah merupakan satu-satunya isterinya sehinggalah Khadijah meninggal pada
    usia 64 tahun.


    ANAK RASULULLAH SAW DENGAN
    MARIA AL-QIBTIYYAH :
    Seorang lagi anak Baginda adalah hasil perkahwinan Baginda dengan
    Maria al-Qibtiyyah.
    Putera Baginda bersama Maria bernama Ibrahim itu juga meninggal semasa kecil. Isteri-isteri baginda dikenali sebagai "Ummul Mukminin" yang bermaksud
    "ibu orang-orang beriman".

    BAPA DAN IBU SAUDARA
    NABI MUHAMMAD SAW :
    Al-Harith bin Abdul Muttalib
    Muqaddam bin Abdul Muttalib
    Zubair bin Abdul Muttalib
    Hamzah bin Abdul Muttalib
    Al-Abbas bin Abdul Muttalib
    Abu Thalib bin Abdul Muttalib
    Abu Lahab bin Abdul Muttalib
    Abdul Kaabah bin Abdul Muttalib
    Hijin bin Abdul Muttalib
    Dhirar bin Abdul Muttalib
    Ghaidaq bin Abdul Muttalib
    Safiyah binti Abdul Muttalib
    'Atikah binti Abdul Muttalib
    Arwa binti Abdul Muttalib
    Umaimah binti Abdul Muttalib
    Barrah binti Abdul Muttalib
    Ummi Hakim al-Bidha binti Abdul Muttalib
    Hashim bin Abdu'Manan


    KERASULAN :
    Nabi Muhammad SAW telah dilahirkan di tengah-tengah masyarakat jahiliyah.
    Ia sungguh menyedihkan hati Baginda sehingga Baginda kerapkali ke Gua Hira, sebuah gua bukit dekat Makkah,
    yang kemudian dikenali sebagai
    Jabal al-Nour,
    untuk memikirkan cara untuk mengatasi gejala yang dihadapi masyarakatnya.

    Di sinilah Baginda sering bertapa serta berfikir dengan mendalam, memohon kepada Allah SWT supaya memusnahkan kedurjanaan yang kian berleluasa.


    WAHYU PERTAMA :
    Pada suatu malam hari Isnin 21 Ramadan (bersamaan 10 Ogos 610),
    ketika Baginda sedang bertafakur
    di Gua Hira,

    Malaikat Jibril mendatangi Baginda.
    Jibril membangkitkan Baginda dan menyampaikan wahyu Allah SWT
    di telinganya.
    Baginda diminta membaca.

    Baginda menjawab,
    "Saya tidak tahu membaca".

    Jibril mengulangi tiga kali meminta
    Nabi Muhammad SAW untuk membaca tetapi jawapan Baginda tetap sama.

    Baginda menjawab,
    "Saya tidak tahu membaca".

    Akhirnya, Jibril berkata :
    "Bacalah dengan menyebut nama Tuhanmu yang menciptakan manusia dari segumpal darah.
    Bacalah, dengan nama Tuhanmu yang Amat Pemurah
    yang mengajar manusia dengan perantaraan
    (menulis, membaca).
    Dia mengajarkan kepada manusia
    apa yang tidak diketahuinya."

    Ini merupakan wahyu pertama yang diterima oleh Nabi Muhammad SAW.
    Ketika itu baginda berusia 40 tahun setengah.


    WAHYU TURUN SELAMA 23 TAHUN :
    Wahyu itu turun kepada Baginda dari semasa ke semasa dalam jangka masa
    23 tahun.

    Siri wahyu ini telah diturunkan menurut panduan yang diberikan kepada
    Nabi Muhammad SAW dan dikumpulkan dalam buku bernama Al Mushaf yang juga dinamakan Al-Quran (bacaan).


    AL-QURAN DAN AL SUNNAH :
    Kebanyakkan ayat-ayatnya mempunyai
    erti yang jelas.
    Sebahagiannya diterjemah dan dihubungkan dengan ayat-ayat yang lain. Sebahagiannya pula diterjemah oleh
    Nabi Muhammad SAW sendiri melalui percakapan Baginda,
    tindakan dan persetujuan yang terkenal, dengan nama Sunnah.

    Al-Quran dan al Sunnah digabungkan bersama untuk menjadi panduan dan cara hidup mereka yang menyerahkan diri kepada Allah SWT.


    BERDAKWAH :
    Marhalah dakwah baginda boleh dibahagikan mengikut fasa:

    Fasa di Makkah: hampir 13 tahun
    Dakwah rahsia: 3 tahun
    Dakwah terbuka di Makkah: hampir 7 tahun
    Dakwah kepada semua: 3 tahun
    Fasa Madinah: 10 tahun

    Perjuangan dakwah Nabi Muhammad SAW juga boleh diringkaskan sebagai berikut :

    Pertama:
    Marhalah Tasqif -
    tahap pembinaan dan pengkaderan untuk melahirkan individu-individu yang menyakini pemikiran (fikrah) dan metod (thariqah) parti politik guna membentuk kerangka gerakan.

    Kedua:
    Marhalah Tafa’ul ma’al Ummah -
    tahap berinteraksi dengan umat agar umat turut sama memikul kewajiban dakwah Islam, sehingga umat akan menjadikan Islam sebagai panduan utama dalam hidupnya serta berusaha untuk menerapkannya dalam kehidupan bernegara dan bermasyarakat.

    Ketiga:
    Marhalah Istilamil Hukmi -
    tahap pengambilalihan kekuasaan, dan penerapan Islam secara utuh serta menyeluruh, lalu mengembangkannya sebagai risalah Islam ke seluruh penjuru dunia.

    didalam kitab sirah dan merupakan satu aktiviti penting dalam marhalah kedua perjuangan Nabi Muhammad SAW
    Lestari atau tidaknya dakwah ditentukan oleh Baginda kerana keberlangsungan dakwah memerlukan dua aspek penting :

    Pertama :
    untuk mendapatkan perlindungan (himayah) sehingga tetap dapat melakukan aktiviti dakwah dalam keadaan aman dan terlindung.

    Kedua :
    untuk mencapai tampuk pemerintahan dalam rangka menegakkan Daulah Islamiyah (Negara Islam) dan menerapkan hukum-hukum berdasarkan apa yang telah diturunkan Allah SWT dalam kehidupan bernegara dan bermasyarakat.

    CABARAN BERDAKWAH :
    Apabila Nabi Muhammad SAW menyeru manusia ke jalan Allah SWT,
    tidak ramai yang mendengar seruannya.

    Kebanyakkan pengikut Baginda adalah dari anggota keluarga Baginda dan dari golongan masyarakat bawahan,
    Antara mereka ialah Khadijah, Ali, Zaid dan Bilal.

    Apabila Baginda memperhebatkan kegiatan dakwah Baginda dengan mengumumkan secara terbuka
    Agama Islam yang disebarkan Baginda, dengan itu ramai yang mengikut Baginda.

    Tetapi pada masa, Baginda menghadapi berbagai cabaran dari kalangan bangsawan dan para pemimpin yang merasakan kedudukan mereka terancam.
    Mereka bangkit bersama untuk mempertahankan agama datuk nenek mereka.

    Semangat penganut Islam meningkat apabila sekumpulan kecil masyarakat yang dihormati di Makkah menganut Agama Islam.

    Antara mereka ialah Abu Bakar, Uthman bin Affan, Zubair bin Al Awwam, Abdul Rahman bin Auf, Ubaidillah bin Harith, Amr bin Nufail dan ramai lagi.

    Akibat cabaran dari masyarakat jahiliyah di Mekkah, sebahagian orang Islam disiksa, dianiaya, disingkir dan dipulaukan.

    Baginda terpaksa bersabar dan mencari perlindungan untuk pengikutnya.
    Baginda meminta Negus Raja Habsyah, untuk membenarkan orang-orang Islam berhijrah ke negaranya.
    Negus mengalu-alukan ketibaan mereka dan tidak membenarkan mereka diserah kepada penguasa di Makkah.

    HIJRAH :
    Di Makkah terdapat Kaabah yang telah dibina oleh Nabi Ibrahim a.s.
    beberapa abad lalu sebagai pusat penyatuan umat untuk beribadat kepada Allah SWT.
    Sebelumnya ia dijadikan oleh masyarakat jahiliyah sebagai tempat sembahyang selain dari Allah SWT.

    Mereka datang dari berbagai daerah Arab, mewakili berbagai suku ternama.
    Ziarah ke Kaabah dijadikan mereka sebagai sebuah pesta tahunan.
    Orang ramai bertemu dan berhibur dengan kegiatan-kegiatan tradisi mereka dalam kunjungan ini.

    Baginda mengambil peluang ini untuk menyebarkan Islam.
    Antara mereka yang tertarik dengan seruan Baginda ialah sekumpulan orang dari Yathrib (Madinah).

    Mereka menemui Baginda dan beberapa orang Islam dari Mekah di desa bernama Aqabah secara sembunyi-sembunyi.

    Setelah menganut Islam, mereka bersumpah untuk melindungi Islam,
    Nabi Muhammad SAW dan orang-orang Islam Mekkah.

    Tahun berikutnya, sekumpulan masyarakat Islam dari Yathrib datang lagi ke Makkah. Mereka menemui Nabi Muhammad di tempat yang mereka bertemu sebelumnya. Kali ini, Abbas bin Abdul Muthalib,
    pakcik Baginda yang belum menganut Islam hadir dalam pertemuan itu.
    Mereka mengundang Baginda dan orang-orang Islam Mekkah untuk berhijrah ke Yathrib.

    Mereka berjanji akan melayani mereka sebagai saudara seAgama.
    Dialog yang memakan masa agak lama diadakan antara mayarakat Islam Yathrib dengan pakcik Nabi Muhammad SAW untuk memastikan mereka sesungguhnya berhasrat mengalu-alukan masyarakat Islam Mekkah di bandar mereka.
    Nabi Muhammad SAW akhirnya bersetuju untuk berhijrah beramai-ramai ke bandar baru itu.


    HIJRAH KE MADINAH (YATHRIB) :
    Mengetahui ramai masyarakat Islam merancang meninggalkan Makkah, masyarakat jahiliyah Mekkah cuba menghalang mereka.
    Namun kumpulan pertama telahpun berjaya berhijrah ke Yathrib.
    Masyarakat jahiliyah Mekkah bimbang hijrah ke Yathrib akan memberi peluang kepada orang Islam untuk mengembangkan Agama mereka ke daerah-daerah yang lain.

    Hampir dua bulan seluruh masyarakat Islam dari Makkah kecuali
    Nabi Muhammad SAW, Abu Bakar, Ali dan beberapa orang yang daif, telah berhijrah.


    RANCANGAN MEMBUNUH
    RASULULLAH SAW :
    Masyarakat Mekkah kemudian memutuskan untuk membunuh Baginda. Mereka merancang namun tidak berjaya. Dengan berbagai taktik dan rancangan yang teratur,
    Nabi Muhammad SAW akhirnya sampai dengan selamat ke Yathrib, yang kemudian dikenali sebagai, 'Bandar Rasulullah SAW'.


    MADINAH :
    Di Madinah, kerajaan Islam diwujudkan di bawah pimpinan Baginda umat Islam bebas mengerjakan solat di Madinah.

    Musyrikin Makkah mengetahui akan perkara ini kemudiannya melancarkan beberapa serangan ke atas Madinah tetapi kesemuanya ditangkis dengan mudah oleh umat Islam.

    Satu perjanjian kemudiannya dibuat dengan memihak kepada pihak Quraish Makkah.
    Walau bagaimanapun perjanjian itu dicabuli oleh mereka dengan menyerang sekutu umat Islam.
    Orang Muslim pada ketika ini menjadi semakin kuat telah membuat keputusan untuk menyerang musyrikin Makkah memandangkan perjanjian telah dicabuli.


    PEMBUKAAN KOTA MAKKAH :
    Pada tahun kelapan selepas penghijrahan ke Madinah berlaku,
    Nabi Muhammad SAW berlepas ke Makkah.

    Tentera Islam yang seramai 10,000 orang tiba di Makkah dengan penuh bersemangat.
    Takut akan nyawa mereka terkorban, penduduk Makkah bersetuju untuk menyerahkan kota Makkah tanpa sebarang syarat.
    Nabi Muhammad SAW kemudian mengarahkan supaya kesemua berhala dan patung-patung di sekeliling Kaabah dimusnahkan.


    MENELADANI PERBUATAN
    NABI MUHAMMAD SAW :
    Perbuatan-perbuatan yang dilakukan
    Nabi Muhammad SAW dibagi menjadi dua cara.
    Ada yang termasuk perbuatan-perbuatan jibiliyah, iaitu perbuatan yang dilakukan manusia secara Fitriah, dan ada pula perbuatan-perbuatan selain jibiliyah.

    Perbuatan-perbuatan jibiliyah,
    seperti berdiri, duduk, makan, minum dan lain sebagainya, tidak ada perselisihan bahawa status perbuatan tersebut adalah mubah (harus), baik bagi
    Nabi Muhammad SAW maupun bagi umatnya.
    Oleh kerana itu, perbuatan tersebut tidak termasuk dalam kategori mandub (sunat).

    Sedangkan perbuatan-perbuatan yang bukan jibiliyah, boleh jadi termasuk dalam hal-hal yang ditetapkan khusus bagi
    Nabi Muhammad SAW, dimana tidak seorang pun diperkenankan mengikutinya (haram);
    atau boleh jadi tidak termasuk dalam perbuatan yang diperuntukkan khusus bagi Baginda.


    KHUSUS BAGI RASULULLAH SAW :
    Apabila perbuatan itu telah ditetapkan khusus bagi Nabi Muhammad SAW,
    seperti dibolehkan Baginda melanjutkan puasa pada malam hari tanpa berbuka, atau dibolehkannya menikah dengan lebih dari empat wanita, dan lain sebagainya dari kekhususan Baginda;
    maka dalam hal ini kita tidak diperkenankan mengikuti Baginda.

    Sebab,
    perbuatan-perbuatan tersebut telah terbukti diperuntukkan khusus bagi Baginda berdasarkan Ijmak Sahabat.
    Oleh kerana itu tidak dibolehkan meneladani Baginda dalam perbuatan-perbuatan semacam ini.

    Akan halnya dengan perbuatan Baginda yang kita kenal sebagai penjelas bagi kita, tidak ada perselisihan bahawa hal itu merupakan dalil.
    Dalam hal ini penjelasan tersebut boleh berupa perkataan, seperti

    RASULULLAH SAW BERSABDA :
    “ Solatlah kalian sebagaimana kalian melihat aku solat ”.

    RASULULLAH SAW BERSABDA
    " Laksanakan manasik hajimu berdasarkan manasikku (apa yang telah aku kerjakan) ".

    Hadis ini menunjukkan bahawa perbuatan Baginda merupakan penjelas,
    agar kita mengikutinya.

    Penjelasan Baginda boleh juga berupa qaraain al ahwal, yakni qarinah/perbuatan yang menerangkan bentuk perbuatan, seperti memotong pergelangan pencuri sebagai penjelas,

    ALLAH SWT BERFIRMAN :
    " Maka potonglah tangan keduanya ."
    (SURAH AL-MAIDAH : 38)

    Status penjelas yang terdapat dalam perbuatan Baginda, baik berupa ucapan maupun perbuatan yang menerangkan bentuk perbuatan, dapat mengikuti hukum apa yang telah dijelaskan, apakah itu
    wajib,
    haram,
    mandub(sunat) atau
    mubah(harus) sesuai dengan arah penunjukan dalil.

    Sedangkan perbuatan-perbuatan Baginda yang tidak terdapat di dalamnya perbuatan yang menunjukkan bahawa hal itu merupakan penjelas,
    bukan penolakan dan bukan pula ketetapan.
    Maka dalam hal ini perlu diperhatikan apakah di dalamnya terdapat maksud untuk bertaqarrub
    (mendekatkan diri kepada Allah SWT)
    atau tidak.
    Apabila di dalamnya terdapat keinginan untuk bertaqarrub kepada Allah SWT
    maka perbuatan itu termasuk mandub (sunat),
    di mana seseorang akan mendapatkan pahala atas perbuatannya itu dan tidak mendapatkan balasan jika meninggalkannya.

    Misalnya Solat Duha.
    Sedangkan jika tidak terdapat di
    dalamnya keinginan untuk bertaqarrub, maka perbuatan tersebut termasuk
    mubah (harus).

    PESANAN TERAKHIR MUHAMMAD
    (ISI KHUTBAH TERAKHIR MUHAMMAD) :
    Ketika Nabi Muhammad SAW
    mengerjakan ibadah haji yang terakhir,
    maka pada 9 Zulhijjah tahun 10 hijarah
    di Lembah Uranah, Bukit Arafah,
    Baginda menyampaikan khutbah terakhirnya di hadapan kaum Muslimin,
    di antara isi dari khutbah terakhir
    Nabi Muhammad SAW itu ialah:

    " Wahai manusia,
    dengarlah baik-baik apa yang hendak ku katakan, Aku tidak mengetahui apakah aku dapat bertemu lagi dengan kamu semua selepas tahun ini.

    Oleh itu, dengarlah dengan teliti kata-kataku ini dan sampaikanlah ia kepada orang-orang yang tidak dapat hadir disini pada hari ini.

    1. "Wahai manusia, sepertimana kamu menganggap bulan ini dan kota ini sebagai suci, anggaplah jiwa dan harta setiap orang Muslim sebagai amanah suci.

    2. Kembalikan harta yang diamanahkan kepada kamu kepada pemiliknya yang berhak.

    3. Janganlah kamu sakiti sesiapapun agar orang lain tidak menyakiti kamu lagi.

    4. Ingatlah bahawa sesungguhya kamu akan menemui Tuhan kamu dan DIA pasti membuat perhitungan di atas segala amalan kamu.

    5. Allah SWT telah mengharamkan riba, oleh itu, segala urusan yang melibatkan riba dibatalkan mulai sekarang.

    6. "Berwaspadalah terhadap syaitan demi keselamatan agama kamu.
    syaitan telah berputus asa untuk menyesatkan kamu dalam perkara-perkara besar,
    maka berjaga-jagalah supaya kamu tidak mengikutinya dalam perkara-perkara kecil.

    7. "Wahai manusia sebagaimana kamu mempunyai hak atas isteri kamu,
    mereka juga mempunyai hak ke atas kamu. Sekiranya mereka menyempurnakan hak mereka ke atas kamu,
    maka mereka juga berhak diberikan makan dan pakaian, dalam suasana kasih sayang.
    Layanilah wanita-wanita kamu dengan baik dan berlemah-lembutlah terhadap mereka kerana sesungguhnya mereka adalah teman dan pembantu kamu yang setia.
    Dan hak kamu atas mereka ialah mereka sama sekali tidak boleh memasukkan orang yang kamu tidak sukai ke dalam rumah kamu dan dilarang melakukan zina.

    8. "Wahai manusia,
    dengarlah bersungguh-sungguh kata-kataku ini,
    sembahlah Allah SWT,
    dirikanlah solat lima waktu,
    berpuasalah di bulan Ramadhan, dan tunaikanlah zakat dari harta kekayaan kamu.
    Kerjakanlah ibadah haji sekiranya kamu mampu.

    9. Ketahuilah bahawa setiap Muslim adalah saudara kepada Muslim yang lain.
    Kamu semua adalah sama;
    tidak seorang pun yang lebih mulia dari yang lainnya kecuali dalam Taqwa dan beramal soleh.

    10. "Ingatlah, bahawa kamu akan menghadap Allah SWT pada suatu hari untuk dipertanggungjawabkan diatas segala apa yang telah kamu kerjakan.
    Oleh itu, awasilah agar jangan sekali-kali kamu terkeluar dari landasan kebenaran selepas ketiadaanku.

    11. "Wahai manusia,
    tidak ada lagi Nabi atau Rasul yang akan datang selepasku dan tidak akan lahir Agama baru.

    Oleh itu wahai manusia.
    Nilailah dengan betul dan fahamilah kata-kataku yang telah aku sampaikan kepada kamu.

    Sesungguhnya aku tinggalkan kepada kamu dua perkara, yang sekiranya kamu berpegang teguh dan mengikuti kedua-duanya, nescaya kamu tidak akan tersesat selama-lamanya.
    Itulah Al-Qur'an dan Sunnahku.

    12. "Hendaklah orang-orang yang mendengar ucapanku, menyampaikan pula kepada orang lain.
    Semoga yang terakhir lebih memahami kata-kataku dari mereka yang terus mendengar dariku.

    Saksikanlah Ya Allah,
    bahawasanya telah aku sampaikan risalah-MU kepada hamba-hamba-MU."

Mariyah al-Qibthiyah (630-632). IBU BAPA RASULULLAH SAW : AYAH : Abdullah bin Abdul Muttalib IBU : Āminah bt Wahab SEJARAH RINGKAS : DILAHIRKAN DI MAKKAH DAN DIJAGA : Semenanjung Arab, Baginda adalah anak yatim piatu sejak kecil lagi dimana baginda dijaga oleh 1. datuknya, Abdul Muttalib bin Hasyim dan 2. seterusnya bapa saudara baginda, Abu Talib bin Abdul Muttalib. Baginda juga pernah bekerja sebagai pengembala kambing dan saudagar serta perkahwinan pertamanya adalah ketika berusia 25 tahun dimana baginda telah bernikah dengan Khadijah binti Khuwailid (40 tahun). Keluarga baginda mengamalkan ajaran Tauhid yang dibawa oleh Nabi Isa AS daripada Allah SWT. WAHYU PERTAMA : Ketika Nabi Muhammad berumur 40 tahun, baginda telah menerima wahyu yang pertama daripada Tuhan melalui malaikat Jibril (malaikat yang sama menyampaikan wahyu Allah SWT kepada 5 orang Rasul Ulul Azmi) ketika sedang berada di Gua Hira. BERDAKWAH : Tiga tahun setelah kejadian itu, baginda mula berdakwah secara terbuka kepada penduduk Makkah dengan mengatakan "Tuhan itu Esa" dan hendaklah menyerahkan diri sepenuhnya kepada Allah SWT (secara harfiahnya membawa maksud Islam) dan ia adalah satu cara hidup (الدين ad-Din) yang diterima Allah SWT sahaja. Nabi Muhammad SAW menerima beberapa orang pengikut pada awalnya yang terdiri daripada pelbagai golongan. Ajaran yang dibawa oleh baginda mendapat tentangan yang hebat dalam kalangan penduduk Makkah malahan mereka dilayan dengan teruk dan zalim. Oleh itu, Nabi Muhammad SAW telah menghantar beberapa orang pengikutnya ke Habsyah pada 614 M HIJRAH : sebelum baginda dan pengikutnya lain di Makkah Hijrah ke Madinah (dahulu dikenali sebagai Yathrib) pada tahun 622 M. Peristiwa penghijrahan Baginda itu menandakan permulaan bagi kalendar Islam atau takwim Hijrah. Di Madinah, Baginda telah menyatukan semua suku kaum dibawah Piagam Madinah. KEMBALI KE MEKKAH SEMULA : Setelah bersengketa dengan penduduk Makkah selama 8 tahun, Baginda membawa 10,000 pengikutnya ke Makkah serta membukanya. Nabi Muhammad SAW dan para pengikutnya telah memusnahkan patung berhala yang terdapat di Makkah. KEWAFATAN RASULULLAH SAW : Pada tahun 632 M, beberapa bulan selepas Haji Wida atau Haji Perpisahan, Nabi Muhammad SAW telah jatuh sakit lalu wafat. Ketika kematian Baginda, hampir seluruh Semenanjung Arab berada di bawah naungan Islam dan bersatu dengan utuhnya (6 Mei 570M atau pun 20 April/26 April 571M). KETURUNAN IBU DAN AYAH RASULULLAH SAW : Ibu Baginda, iaitu Aminah binti Wahab, adalah anak perempuan kepada Wahab bin Abdul Manaf dari keluarga Zahrah. Ayah Baginda, iaitu Abdullah, ialah anak kepada Abdul Muthalib. Keturunannya dikatakan bersusur galur dari Nabi Ismail, anak kepada Nabi Ibrahim kira-kira dalam keturunan keempat puluh. Ayah Baginda telah meninggal sebelum kelahiran Baginda. Sementara ibu Baginda meninggal ketika Baginda berusia kira-kira enam tahun, menjadikannya seorang anak yatim piatu. IBU SUSUAN RASULULLAH SAW : Menurut tradisi keluarga atasan Mekkah, Baginda telah dipelihara oleh seorang ibu angkat IBU SUSU : wanita yang menyusukan baginda yang bernama Halimahtus Sa'adiah di kampung halamannya di pergunungan selama beberapa tahun. RASULULLAH SAW DI JAGA : Dalam tahun-tahun itu, baginda telah dibawa ke Makkah untuk mengunjungi ibu Baginda Aminah binti Wahab. Setelah ibu Baginda wafat, Baginda dijaga oleh datuknya, Abdul Muthalib. Apabila datuknya meninggal, Baginda dijaga oleh bapa saudara Baginda, Abu Talib. Ketika inilah Baginda sering kali membantu mengembala kambing-kambing bapa saudara Baginda di sekitar Mekkah dan kerap menemani bapa saudara Baginda dalam urusan perdagangan ke Syam (Syria). MASA REMAJA RASULULLAH SAW : Dalam masa remaja Baginda, Nabi Muhammad SAW percaya sepenuhnya dengan keesaan Allah SWT. Baginda hidup dengan cara amat sederhana dan membenci sifat-sifat angkuh dan bongkak. Baginda mengamalkan ajaran-ajaran Nabi-Nabi terdahulu terutamanya Nabi Isa Al-Masih. YANG RASULULLAH SAW SAYANG : Baginda menyayangi 1. orang-orang miskin, 2. para janda dan 3. anak-anak yatim serta berkongsi penderitaan mereka dengan berusaha menolong mereka. Baginda juga menghindari semua kejahatan yang menjadi amalan biasa di kalangan para belia pada masa itu seperti berjudi, meminum minuman keras, berkelakuan kasar dan lain-lain, sehingga Baginda dikenali sebagai As Saadiq (yang benar) dan Al Amin (yang amanah). Baginda sentiasa dipercayai sebagai orang tengah kepada dua pihak yang bertelingkah di kampung halamannya di Mekkah. BAGINDA BERUMAHTANGGA : Ketika berusia kira-kira 25 tahun, ayah saudara Baginda menyarankan Baginda untuk bekerja dengan kafilah (rombongan perniagaan) yang dimiliki oleh seorang janda yang bernama Khadijah. Baginda diterima bekerja dan bertanggungjawab terhadap pelayaran ke Syam (Syria). Baginda mengelolakan urusniaga itu dengan penuh bijaksana dan pulang dengan keuntungan luar biasa. ISTERI DAN ANAK RASULULLAH SAW PERTAMA: Khadijah begitu tertarik dengan kejujuran dan watak peribadinya yang mendorong beliau untuk menawarkan diri untuk mengahwini Baginda. Baginda menerima lamarannya dan perkahwinan mereka adalah bahagia. Mereka dikurniakan 6 orang anak (2 lelaki dan 4 perempuan) tetapi kedua-dua anak lelaki mereka, Qasim dan Abdullah meninggal semasa kecil. Manakala anak perempuan baginda ialah Ruqayyah, Zainab, Ummu Kalsum dan Fatimah az-Zahra. Khadijah merupakan satu-satunya isterinya sehinggalah Khadijah meninggal pada usia 64 tahun. ANAK RASULULLAH SAW DENGAN MARIA AL-QIBTIYYAH : Seorang lagi anak Baginda adalah hasil perkahwinan Baginda dengan Maria al-Qibtiyyah. Putera Baginda bersama Maria bernama Ibrahim itu juga meninggal semasa kecil. Isteri-isteri baginda dikenali sebagai "Ummul Mukminin" yang bermaksud "ibu orang-orang beriman". BAPA DAN IBU SAUDARA NABI MUHAMMAD SAW : Al-Harith bin Abdul Muttalib Muqaddam bin Abdul Muttalib Zubair bin Abdul Muttalib Hamzah bin Abdul Muttalib Al-Abbas bin Abdul Muttalib Abu Thalib bin Abdul Muttalib Abu Lahab bin Abdul Muttalib Abdul Kaabah bin Abdul Muttalib Hijin bin Abdul Muttalib Dhirar bin Abdul Muttalib Ghaidaq bin Abdul Muttalib Safiyah binti Abdul Muttalib 'Atikah binti Abdul Muttalib Arwa binti Abdul Muttalib Umaimah binti Abdul Muttalib Barrah binti Abdul Muttalib Ummi Hakim al-Bidha binti Abdul Muttalib Hashim bin Abdu'Manan KERASULAN : Nabi Muhammad SAW telah dilahirkan di tengah-tengah masyarakat jahiliyah. Ia sungguh menyedihkan hati Baginda sehingga Baginda kerapkali ke Gua Hira, sebuah gua bukit dekat Makkah, yang kemudian dikenali sebagai Jabal al-Nour, untuk memikirkan cara untuk mengatasi gejala yang dihadapi masyarakatnya. Di sinilah Baginda sering bertapa serta berfikir dengan mendalam, memohon kepada Allah SWT supaya memusnahkan kedurjanaan yang kian berleluasa. WAHYU PERTAMA : Pada suatu malam hari Isnin 21 Ramadan (bersamaan 10 Ogos 610), ketika Baginda sedang bertafakur di Gua Hira, Malaikat Jibril mendatangi Baginda. Jibril membangkitkan Baginda dan menyampaikan wahyu Allah SWT di telinganya. Baginda diminta membaca. Baginda menjawab, "Saya tidak tahu membaca". Jibril mengulangi tiga kali meminta Nabi Muhammad SAW untuk membaca tetapi jawapan Baginda tetap sama. Baginda menjawab, "Saya tidak tahu membaca". Akhirnya, Jibril berkata : "Bacalah dengan menyebut nama Tuhanmu yang menciptakan manusia dari segumpal darah. Bacalah, dengan nama Tuhanmu yang Amat Pemurah yang mengajar manusia dengan perantaraan (menulis, membaca). Dia mengajarkan kepada manusia apa yang tidak diketahuinya." Ini merupakan wahyu pertama yang diterima oleh Nabi Muhammad SAW. Ketika itu baginda berusia 40 tahun setengah. WAHYU TURUN SELAMA 23 TAHUN : Wahyu itu turun kepada Baginda dari semasa ke semasa dalam jangka masa 23 tahun. Siri wahyu ini telah diturunkan menurut panduan yang diberikan kepada Nabi Muhammad SAW dan dikumpulkan dalam buku bernama Al Mushaf yang juga dinamakan Al-Quran (bacaan). AL-QURAN DAN AL SUNNAH : Kebanyakkan ayat-ayatnya mempunyai erti yang jelas. Sebahagiannya diterjemah dan dihubungkan dengan ayat-ayat yang lain. Sebahagiannya pula diterjemah oleh Nabi Muhammad SAW sendiri melalui percakapan Baginda, tindakan dan persetujuan yang terkenal, dengan nama Sunnah. Al-Quran dan al Sunnah digabungkan bersama untuk menjadi panduan dan cara hidup mereka yang menyerahkan diri kepada Allah SWT. BERDAKWAH : Marhalah dakwah baginda boleh dibahagikan mengikut fasa: Fasa di Makkah: hampir 13 tahun Dakwah rahsia: 3 tahun Dakwah terbuka di Makkah: hampir 7 tahun Dakwah kepada semua: 3 tahun Fasa Madinah: 10 tahun Perjuangan dakwah Nabi Muhammad SAW juga boleh diringkaskan sebagai berikut : Pertama: Marhalah Tasqif - tahap pembinaan dan pengkaderan untuk melahirkan individu-individu yang menyakini pemikiran (fikrah) dan metod (thariqah) parti politik guna membentuk kerangka gerakan. Kedua: Marhalah Tafa’ul ma’al Ummah - tahap berinteraksi dengan umat agar umat turut sama memikul kewajiban dakwah Islam, sehingga umat akan menjadikan Islam sebagai panduan utama dalam hidupnya serta berusaha untuk menerapkannya dalam kehidupan bernegara dan bermasyarakat. Ketiga: Marhalah Istilamil Hukmi - tahap pengambilalihan kekuasaan, dan penerapan Islam secara utuh serta menyeluruh, lalu mengembangkannya sebagai risalah Islam ke seluruh penjuru dunia. didalam kitab sirah dan merupakan satu aktiviti penting dalam marhalah kedua perjuangan Nabi Muhammad SAW Lestari atau tidaknya dakwah ditentukan oleh Baginda kerana keberlangsungan dakwah memerlukan dua aspek penting : Pertama : untuk mendapatkan perlindungan (himayah) sehingga tetap dapat melakukan aktiviti dakwah dalam keadaan aman dan terlindung. Kedua : untuk mencapai tampuk pemerintahan dalam rangka menegakkan Daulah Islamiyah (Negara Islam) dan menerapkan hukum-hukum berdasarkan apa yang telah diturunkan Allah SWT dalam kehidupan bernegara dan bermasyarakat. CABARAN BERDAKWAH : Apabila Nabi Muhammad SAW menyeru manusia ke jalan Allah SWT, tidak ramai yang mendengar seruannya. Kebanyakkan pengikut Baginda adalah dari anggota keluarga Baginda dan dari golongan masyarakat bawahan, Antara mereka ialah Khadijah, Ali, Zaid dan Bilal. Apabila Baginda memperhebatkan kegiatan dakwah Baginda dengan mengumumkan secara terbuka Agama Islam yang disebarkan Baginda, dengan itu ramai yang mengikut Baginda. Tetapi pada masa, Baginda menghadapi berbagai cabaran dari kalangan bangsawan dan para pemimpin yang merasakan kedudukan mereka terancam. Mereka bangkit bersama untuk mempertahankan agama datuk nenek mereka. Semangat penganut Islam meningkat apabila sekumpulan kecil masyarakat yang dihormati di Makkah menganut Agama Islam. Antara mereka ialah Abu Bakar, Uthman bin Affan, Zubair bin Al Awwam, Abdul Rahman bin Auf, Ubaidillah bin Harith, Amr bin Nufail dan ramai lagi. Akibat cabaran dari masyarakat jahiliyah di Mekkah, sebahagian orang Islam disiksa, dianiaya, disingkir dan dipulaukan. Baginda terpaksa bersabar dan mencari perlindungan untuk pengikutnya. Baginda meminta Negus Raja Habsyah, untuk membenarkan orang-orang Islam berhijrah ke negaranya. Negus mengalu-alukan ketibaan mereka dan tidak membenarkan mereka diserah kepada penguasa di Makkah. HIJRAH : Di Makkah terdapat Kaabah yang telah dibina oleh Nabi Ibrahim a.s. beberapa abad lalu sebagai pusat penyatuan umat untuk beribadat kepada Allah SWT. Sebelumnya ia dijadikan oleh masyarakat jahiliyah sebagai tempat sembahyang selain dari Allah SWT. Mereka datang dari berbagai daerah Arab, mewakili berbagai suku ternama. Ziarah ke Kaabah dijadikan mereka sebagai sebuah pesta tahunan. Orang ramai bertemu dan berhibur dengan kegiatan-kegiatan tradisi mereka dalam kunjungan ini. Baginda mengambil peluang ini untuk menyebarkan Islam. Antara mereka yang tertarik dengan seruan Baginda ialah sekumpulan orang dari Yathrib (Madinah). Mereka menemui Baginda dan beberapa orang Islam dari Mekah di desa bernama Aqabah secara sembunyi-sembunyi. Setelah menganut Islam, mereka bersumpah untuk melindungi Islam, Nabi Muhammad SAW dan orang-orang Islam Mekkah. Tahun berikutnya, sekumpulan masyarakat Islam dari Yathrib datang lagi ke Makkah. Mereka menemui Nabi Muhammad di tempat yang mereka bertemu sebelumnya. Kali ini, Abbas bin Abdul Muthalib, pakcik Baginda yang belum menganut Islam hadir dalam pertemuan itu. Mereka mengundang Baginda dan orang-orang Islam Mekkah untuk berhijrah ke Yathrib. Mereka berjanji akan melayani mereka sebagai saudara seAgama. Dialog yang memakan masa agak lama diadakan antara mayarakat Islam Yathrib dengan pakcik Nabi Muhammad SAW untuk memastikan mereka sesungguhnya berhasrat mengalu-alukan masyarakat Islam Mekkah di bandar mereka. Nabi Muhammad SAW akhirnya bersetuju untuk berhijrah beramai-ramai ke bandar baru itu. HIJRAH KE MADINAH (YATHRIB) : Mengetahui ramai masyarakat Islam merancang meninggalkan Makkah, masyarakat jahiliyah Mekkah cuba menghalang mereka. Namun kumpulan pertama telahpun berjaya berhijrah ke Yathrib. Masyarakat jahiliyah Mekkah bimbang hijrah ke Yathrib akan memberi peluang kepada orang Islam untuk mengembangkan Agama mereka ke daerah-daerah yang lain. Hampir dua bulan seluruh masyarakat Islam dari Makkah kecuali Nabi Muhammad SAW, Abu Bakar, Ali dan beberapa orang yang daif, telah berhijrah. RANCANGAN MEMBUNUH RASULULLAH SAW : Masyarakat Mekkah kemudian memutuskan untuk membunuh Baginda. Mereka merancang namun tidak berjaya. Dengan berbagai taktik dan rancangan yang teratur, Nabi Muhammad SAW akhirnya sampai dengan selamat ke Yathrib, yang kemudian dikenali sebagai, 'Bandar Rasulullah SAW'. MADINAH : Di Madinah, kerajaan Islam diwujudkan di bawah pimpinan Baginda umat Islam bebas mengerjakan solat di Madinah. Musyrikin Makkah mengetahui akan perkara ini kemudiannya melancarkan beberapa serangan ke atas Madinah tetapi kesemuanya ditangkis dengan mudah oleh umat Islam. Satu perjanjian kemudiannya dibuat dengan memihak kepada pihak Quraish Makkah. Walau bagaimanapun perjanjian itu dicabuli oleh mereka dengan menyerang sekutu umat Islam. Orang Muslim pada ketika ini menjadi semakin kuat telah membuat keputusan untuk menyerang musyrikin Makkah memandangkan perjanjian telah dicabuli. PEMBUKAAN KOTA MAKKAH : Pada tahun kelapan selepas penghijrahan ke Madinah berlaku, Nabi Muhammad SAW berlepas ke Makkah. Tentera Islam yang seramai 10,000 orang tiba di Makkah dengan penuh bersemangat. Takut akan nyawa mereka terkorban, penduduk Makkah bersetuju untuk menyerahkan kota Makkah tanpa sebarang syarat. Nabi Muhammad SAW kemudian mengarahkan supaya kesemua berhala dan patung-patung di sekeliling Kaabah dimusnahkan. MENELADANI PERBUATAN NABI MUHAMMAD SAW : Perbuatan-perbuatan yang dilakukan Nabi Muhammad SAW dibagi menjadi dua cara. Ada yang termasuk perbuatan-perbuatan jibiliyah, iaitu perbuatan yang dilakukan manusia secara Fitriah, dan ada pula perbuatan-perbuatan selain jibiliyah. Perbuatan-perbuatan jibiliyah, seperti berdiri, duduk, makan, minum dan lain sebagainya, tidak ada perselisihan bahawa status perbuatan tersebut adalah mubah (harus), baik bagi Nabi Muhammad SAW maupun bagi umatnya. Oleh kerana itu, perbuatan tersebut tidak termasuk dalam kategori mandub (sunat). Sedangkan perbuatan-perbuatan yang bukan jibiliyah, boleh jadi termasuk dalam hal-hal yang ditetapkan khusus bagi Nabi Muhammad SAW, dimana tidak seorang pun diperkenankan mengikutinya (haram); atau boleh jadi tidak termasuk dalam perbuatan yang diperuntukkan khusus bagi Baginda. KHUSUS BAGI RASULULLAH SAW : Apabila perbuatan itu telah ditetapkan khusus bagi Nabi Muhammad SAW, seperti dibolehkan Baginda melanjutkan puasa pada malam hari tanpa berbuka, atau dibolehkannya menikah dengan lebih dari empat wanita, dan lain sebagainya dari kekhususan Baginda; maka dalam hal ini kita tidak diperkenankan mengikuti Baginda. Sebab, perbuatan-perbuatan tersebut telah terbukti diperuntukkan khusus bagi Baginda berdasarkan Ijmak Sahabat. Oleh kerana itu tidak dibolehkan meneladani Baginda dalam perbuatan-perbuatan semacam ini. Akan halnya dengan perbuatan Baginda yang kita kenal sebagai penjelas bagi kita, tidak ada perselisihan bahawa hal itu merupakan dalil. Dalam hal ini penjelasan tersebut boleh berupa perkataan, seperti RASULULLAH SAW BERSABDA : “ Solatlah kalian sebagaimana kalian melihat aku solat ”. RASULULLAH SAW BERSABDA " Laksanakan manasik hajimu berdasarkan manasikku (apa yang telah aku kerjakan) ". Hadis ini menunjukkan bahawa perbuatan Baginda merupakan penjelas, agar kita mengikutinya. Penjelasan Baginda boleh juga berupa qaraain al ahwal, yakni qarinah/perbuatan yang menerangkan bentuk perbuatan, seperti memotong pergelangan pencuri sebagai penjelas, ALLAH SWT BERFIRMAN : " Maka potonglah tangan keduanya ." (SURAH AL-MAIDAH : 38) Status penjelas yang terdapat dalam perbuatan Baginda, baik berupa ucapan maupun perbuatan yang menerangkan bentuk perbuatan, dapat mengikuti hukum apa yang telah dijelaskan, apakah itu wajib, haram, mandub(sunat) atau mubah(harus) sesuai dengan arah penunjukan dalil. Sedangkan perbuatan-perbuatan Baginda yang tidak terdapat di dalamnya perbuatan yang menunjukkan bahawa hal itu merupakan penjelas, bukan penolakan dan bukan pula ketetapan. Maka dalam hal ini perlu diperhatikan apakah di dalamnya terdapat maksud untuk bertaqarrub (mendekatkan diri kepada Allah SWT) atau tidak. Apabila di dalamnya terdapat keinginan untuk bertaqarrub kepada Allah SWT maka perbuatan itu termasuk mandub (sunat), di mana seseorang akan mendapatkan pahala atas perbuatannya itu dan tidak mendapatkan balasan jika meninggalkannya. Misalnya Solat Duha. Sedangkan jika tidak terdapat di dalamnya keinginan untuk bertaqarrub, maka perbuatan tersebut termasuk mubah (harus). PESANAN TERAKHIR MUHAMMAD (ISI KHUTBAH TERAKHIR MUHAMMAD) : Ketika Nabi Muhammad SAW mengerjakan ibadah haji yang terakhir, maka pada 9 Zulhijjah tahun 10 hijarah di Lembah Uranah, Bukit Arafah, Baginda menyampaikan khutbah terakhirnya di hadapan kaum Muslimin, di antara isi dari khutbah terakhir Nabi Muhammad SAW itu ialah: " Wahai manusia, dengarlah baik-baik apa yang hendak ku katakan, Aku tidak mengetahui apakah aku dapat bertemu lagi dengan kamu semua selepas tahun ini. Oleh itu, dengarlah dengan teliti kata-kataku ini dan sampaikanlah ia kepada orang-orang yang tidak dapat hadir disini pada hari ini. 1. "Wahai manusia, sepertimana kamu menganggap bulan ini dan kota ini sebagai suci, anggaplah jiwa dan harta setiap orang Muslim sebagai amanah suci. 2. Kembalikan harta yang diamanahkan kepada kamu kepada pemiliknya yang berhak. 3. Janganlah kamu sakiti sesiapapun agar orang lain tidak menyakiti kamu lagi. 4. Ingatlah bahawa sesungguhya kamu akan menemui Tuhan kamu dan DIA pasti membuat perhitungan di atas segala amalan kamu. 5. Allah SWT telah mengharamkan riba, oleh itu, segala urusan yang melibatkan riba dibatalkan mulai sekarang. 6. "Berwaspadalah terhadap syaitan demi keselamatan agama kamu. syaitan telah berputus asa untuk menyesatkan kamu dalam perkara-perkara besar, maka berjaga-jagalah supaya kamu tidak mengikutinya dalam perkara-perkara kecil. 7. "Wahai manusia sebagaimana kamu mempunyai hak atas isteri kamu, mereka juga mempunyai hak ke atas kamu. Sekiranya mereka menyempurnakan hak mereka ke atas kamu, maka mereka juga berhak diberikan makan dan pakaian, dalam suasana kasih sayang. Layanilah wanita-wanita kamu dengan baik dan berlemah-lembutlah terhadap mereka kerana sesungguhnya mereka adalah teman dan pembantu kamu yang setia. Dan hak kamu atas mereka ialah mereka sama sekali tidak boleh memasukkan orang yang kamu tidak sukai ke dalam rumah kamu dan dilarang melakukan zina. 8. "Wahai manusia, dengarlah bersungguh-sungguh kata-kataku ini, sembahlah Allah SWT, dirikanlah solat lima waktu, berpuasalah di bulan Ramadhan, dan tunaikanlah zakat dari harta kekayaan kamu. Kerjakanlah ibadah haji sekiranya kamu mampu. 9. Ketahuilah bahawa setiap Muslim adalah saudara kepada Muslim yang lain. Kamu semua adalah sama; tidak seorang pun yang lebih mulia dari yang lainnya kecuali dalam Taqwa dan beramal soleh. 10. "Ingatlah, bahawa kamu akan menghadap Allah SWT pada suatu hari untuk dipertanggungjawabkan diatas segala apa yang telah kamu kerjakan. Oleh itu, awasilah agar jangan sekali-kali kamu terkeluar dari landasan kebenaran selepas ketiadaanku. 11. "Wahai manusia, tidak ada lagi Nabi atau Rasul yang akan datang selepasku dan tidak akan lahir Agama baru. Oleh itu wahai manusia. Nilailah dengan betul dan fahamilah kata-kataku yang telah aku sampaikan kepada kamu. Sesungguhnya aku tinggalkan kepada kamu dua perkara, yang sekiranya kamu berpegang teguh dan mengikuti kedua-duanya, nescaya kamu tidak akan tersesat selama-lamanya. Itulah Al-Qur'an dan Sunnahku. 12. "Hendaklah orang-orang yang mendengar ucapanku, menyampaikan pula kepada orang lain. Semoga yang terakhir lebih memahami kata-kataku dari mereka yang terus mendengar dariku. Saksikanlah Ya Allah, bahawasanya telah aku sampaikan risalah-MU kepada hamba-hamba-MU."

  • PARASIT ADA DI DALAM SETIAP INDIVIDU! TEMUDUGA DENGAN PENGARAH INSTITUT PARASITOLOGI TENTANG PENYEBAB UTAMA DI DUNIA YANG MENGHAPUSKAN KESIHATAN KITA

    Dr. Ahmad Shaheer:

    Pengarah Pusat Inovasi Perubatan di Malaysia.

    Saintis dan ahli parasit emeritus

    20 tahun pengalaman

    ...terdapat beribu-ribu parasit yang boleh hidup di dalam hati, otak, paru-paru, darah, perut. Dan hampir kesemuanya boleh membawa maut. Ada di antaranya...

    Dr. Ahmad Shaheer:
    Pengarah, Presiden dan Ketua Institut Parasitologi Malaysia.

    Dr. Ahmad Shaheer ialah pakar onkologi dan parasitologi terkemuka, terkenal kerana menggabungkan terapi tradisional dan alternatif untuk penyakit parasit dan menyediakan pesakit dengan rawatan yang paling berkesan yang mungkin.

    Anda telah membuat penemuan sensasi dan membuktikan dalam kerja saintifik anda bahawa papilloma, ketuat dan herpes pada kulit adalah tanda mabuk badan yang teruk oleh parasit.


    Menurut data terkini dari WHO, parasit yang hidup di dalam tubuh manusia bertanggungjawab untuk kebanyakan penyakit maut.

    Secara statistik, 1.5 ribu orang mati setiap tahun akibat penyakit parasit di Malaysia. Anda mungkin tidak menyedari bahawa anda adalah mangsa dan sudah mempunyai kawanan parasit berbahaya yang berkerumun di dalam diri anda.

    Daripada hepatitis dan ulser perut kepada kanser. Ketuat, papilloma dan juga herpes adalah tanda pertama jangkitan oleh bakteria malignan. Tahap serangan adalah sedemikian rupa sehingga parasit hidup di dalam hampir semua orang, yang anda perlu mula merawat dengan segera!

    Bagaimana untuk menghilangkan pertumbuhan kulit yang memabukkan secara kekal pada membran mukus dan organ dalaman

    Doktor, sejauh manakah laporan WHO mengenai serangan parasit benar?

    Beberapa tahun lalu, komuniti perubatan berpendapat bahawa parasit hanya melemahkan sistem imun manusia, tetapi bukan punca utama penyakit. Kini, apabila statistik dan kajian saya mula terkumpul, ia menjadi jelas bahawa parasit parasit dalam badan adalah punca kemunculan papilloma, ketuat, herpes dan neoplasma lain pada kulit dan membran mukus.

    Penting! JANGAN ABAIKAN GEJALANYA! Jangkitan parasit boleh menyebabkan hampir semua penyakit.

    Gejala pertama kehadiran parasit dalam badan anda:

    nafas berbau
    keletihan kronik
    Papiloma, herpes, HPV (walaupun 1 kali)
    Alahan (ruam dan kemerahan pada kulit, mata berair)
    Rambut dan kuku kusut
    migrain
    Gangguan gastrousus (cirit-birit, kembung perut, sembelit)
    Berat badan berlebihan atau penurunan berat badan yang cepat
    sakit sendi dan otot
    Kegugupan, tidur dan gangguan selera makan.
    Lingkaran gelap, beg di bawah mata atau tumit merekah.
    Terdapat 96% kemungkinan anda mempunyai parasit dalam badan anda jika mana-mana gejala ini berlaku. Mereka mesti dirawat dengan segera.

    Parasit pada umumnya dianggap tidak lebih daripada cacing remeh: bagaimana ia boleh menyebabkan kematian seseorang?

    Dan ia tidak benar: sebarang pertumbuhan atau pembentukan pada kulit adalah tanda pertama kehadiran parasit yang mematikan seperti cacing cambuk dan alveococcosis, yang menyebabkan kanser. Secara peribadi, saya mempercayai statistik Lembaga Perubatan.

    Selain cacing gelang biasa, terdapat beribu-ribu parasit yang boleh hidup di dalam hati, otak, paru-paru, darah, dan perut. Dan hampir kesemuanya boleh membawa maut! Sebahagian daripada mereka segera memusnahkan tubuh manusia. Parasit lain hidup tanpa dikesan sehingga bilangan mereka sangat besar sehingga badan tidak dapat menanganinya dan orang itu mati.

    MEREKA MENYEBABKAN SIRI KOMPLIKASI MAUT: INFARCSI, KANSER, SIRRHOSIS, NEPHRITIS, DEKOMPOSISI BUAH PINGGANG, DLL.

    Sehingga 97% daripada populasi dijangkiti


    Lebih daripada 2,000 spesies parasit diketahui hidup dalam tubuh manusia dan kesemuanya menyebabkan kerosakan yang tidak boleh diperbaiki kepada kesihatan kita.

    Di forum yang sama, saya menemui ujian menarik yang akan membantu mengenal pasti kecenderungan untuk hipertensi, menunjukkan keterukan penyakit ini dan kemungkinan komplikasi, serangan jantung atau strok.

    Saya secara peribadi tidak pernah berjumpa dengan orang yang tidak mempunyai herpes atau ketuat sekurang-kurangnya sekali. Sebarang pertumbuhan pada kulit adalah tanda pertama parasit dan penunjuk jangkitan serius. Jika anda pernah mengalami mana-mana penyakit yang disebutkan di atas, Saya memberi jaminan kepada anda bahawa terdapat keracunan oleh parasit dalam badan anda dan rawatan adalah perlu. Sebahagian besar daripada apa yang dipanggil "kematian semula jadi" adalah akibat daripada pengabaian kesihatan. Sekalipun ia adalah virus papilloma manusia atau virus herpes memasuki badan anda tanpa rawatan yang betul - ia akan kekal bersama anda selama-lamanya!

    Ujian untuk mengetahui sama ada anda mempunyai
    parasit dalam badan anda

    mulakan ujian
    Bolehkah anda memberikan contoh spesifik jangkitan parasit?

    Saya boleh mengira beratus-ratus kes. Tetapi saya akan memberi tumpuan kepada yang paling menggambarkan bahaya parasit.

    Ternyata mana-mana neoplasma, sama ada di dalam atau di luar badan (pada kulit), boleh berakhir dengan kanser. Dan, secara formal, bukan orang itu sendiri yang dijangkiti, tetapi jenis genetiknya. Sel-sel malignan merebak ke seluruh badan dan keracunan teruk berlaku. Ini berlaku apabila jangkitan memasuki nodus limfa seseorang. Lama kelamaan, mereka berkembang menjadi tumor kanser, dengan cepat menjangkiti orang itu. Kematian berlaku dalam beberapa bulan. Hanya minggu lepas satu lagi kes orang yang meninggal akibat tumor ini telah didaftarkan.


    Di tengah-tengah foto ini: sel-sel papillomavirus manusia malignan, yang dihantar melalui membran mukus

    Satu lagi kes biasa ialah jangkitan otak manusia oleh parasit. Ini hanyalah satu contoh bagaimana virus herpes yang tidak dirawat (dalam kes ini pada bibir) membawa kepada neurosis, dan pada peringkat kemudian, apabila otak dipenuhi dengan parasit, kanser berkembang.


    Oleh itu, ingat bahawa mana-mana neoplasma pada kulit adalah tanda pertama dan agen jangkitan yang serius. Jika anda pernah mengalami mana-mana pembentukan yang disebutkan di atas, saya memberi jaminan bahawa terdapat mabuk parasit dalam badan anda dan rawatan adalah perlu segera.

    Tetapi pada hakikatnya, sel-sel kanser yang tidak aktif terdapat dalam kira-kira 23% orang. Malah, ia adalah satu daripada empat. Pada fasa awal mereka, mereka benar-benar tidak kelihatan. Ramai orang mengabaikan penampilan ketuat, papilloma dan tahi lalat baru, dengan itu menjadi lebih teruk terhadap keadaan mereka.

    Semakin lama masa berlalu, semakin banyak keracunan yang ketara, semuanya terima kasih kepada parasit. Mereka adalah punca utama penyakit yang boleh membawa maut dan tidak boleh diubati, jadi saya menasihati semua orang untuk memulakan rawatan dengan segera untuk mengelakkan akibat yang membawa maut jangkitan , yang boleh berlaku dalam 100 % daripada kes virus papiloma manusia.

    Apakah risiko lain dari jangkitan parasit?

    Fibroid, fibroid, cystic fibrosis, adrenal, pundi kencing dan keradangan buah pinggang berkembang. Dan, sudah tentu, penuaan pramatang kulit, kedutan, beg di bawah mata, ketuat dan papilloma pada muka dan leher. Badan.


    Jadi bagaimana kita boleh melindungi diri daripada parasit? Adakah terdapat sebarang kaedah rawatan?

    Malangnya, tiada kaedah yang boleh menghilangkan parasit dalam badan kita. Ini sebahagiannya kerana terdapat begitu banyak spesies parasit (lebih daripada 2,000 spesies yang diketahui) dan sebahagiannya kerana ia sangat sukar untuk dikesan.

    Analisis parasit lengkap di Malaysia boleh didapati di beberapa tempat dan menelan belanja yang besar.Nasib baik, saya sendiri adalah pengarah dan ketua institut parasitologi di Malaysia dan telah dapat menjadi yang pertama untuk membangunkan rawatan inovatif untuk menghapuskan badan parasit selama-lamanya.

    Apakah suplemen itu dan bagaimana ia berfungsi?

    Suplemen ini adalah , suplemen antiparasit, dicipta dengan bantuan Institut Parasitologi kami dan sekumpulan saintis muda bebas.

    Pada masa yang sama, saya sedang mengusahakan dua dozen suplemen anti-parasit. Bagaimanapun, dalam proses pembangunan, Parasotin didapati paling berkesan.

    Parasotin ialah gabungan unik hempedu kenari hitam, jujeña splint, jus buah sumac dan 20 komponen pelengkap lain. Dalam proses mencipta dan menguji, ia telah terbukti sangat berkesan. Hari ini, ia benar-benar satu-satunya produk yang berkesan . Dan jika ia hanya masalah wang, semua yang dicipta akan dieksport. China dan Eropah akan membeli Parasotin pada hampir apa-apa harga.

    Dan yang paling penting! Ia BUKAN produk kimia, tetapi produk semulajadi sepenuhnya, yang menghapuskan tindak balas alahan, ketidakseimbangan usus dan masalah lain yang berlaku apabila dirawat dengan pil klasik!

    Ulasan Pakar:


    Profesor Dr. Amina Ahmad:

    Pakar sakit puan - ahli endokrin

    "Saya sering melihat wanita yang telah dijangkiti HPV. Kanser serviks adalah hukuman yang mengerikan bagi mana-mana daripada mereka. Pembedahan tidak ditunjukkan untuk kanser serviks peringkat ketiga dan pilihan rawatan sentiasa ditentukan secara individu bergantung pada tahap proses dan kehadiran penyakit bersamaan.Dalam kes ini, dua kaedah rawatan digunakan.Pertama ialah penyinaran jarak jauh: 3D conformal radiotherapy.Dan kaedah kedua yang kami gunakan ialah Parasotin. Kini kanser serviks pun boleh disembuhkan dengan ubat-ubatan sahaja.Anda Bertuah untuk hidup pada zaman ini. Orang sering bertanya kepada saya tentang kapsul ajaib ini. Secara peribadi, saya akan memberitahu semua orang sekali dan untuk semua: Parasotin adalah penyelesaian saya untuk hari ini! Ia adalah satu-satunya kapsul yang telah menyelamatkan nyawa ramai pesakit. Kami sentiasa memulakan rawatan dengan produk ini dan dalam 90% kes ia sesuai untuk dua."

    Kajian saintifik:

    Ini adalah keputusan rasmi kajian mengenai Parasotin di Institut Penyelidikan Parasitologi Perubatan dan Perubatan Inovatif:

    1. Keberkesanan Parasotin dinilai dengan kaedah konvensional (nisbah antara bilangan penawar dan jumlah pesakit dalam kumpulan 100 orang yang mengambil produk):

    - penghapusan parasit serta telurnya: 99%,

    - peraturan dan peningkatan fungsi pankreas: 95%,

    - penghapusan dermatitis alahan: 87%,

    - penghapusan gastrik, ulser dan cirit-birit: 83%,

    - penghapusan anemia: 91%,

    - Penghapusan ketuat, papilloma dan ketumbuhan: 100%.

    Pemulihan bermakna penghapusan virus papilloma manusia, herpes kulit dan ketuat, dan tiada pengulangan dalam tempoh 10 bulan.

    2. Tiada kesan sampingan negatif, termasuk tindak balas alahan, telah dikenalpasti.

    3. Parasotin diiktiraf sebagai agen peneraju dalam memerangi parasit dalam badan kita.

    Saya pasti bahawa pembaca kami akan berminat untuk mengetahui di mana untuk membeli Parasotin.

    Untuk masa kini, hanya boleh dibeli melalui laman web kami (Healthy Malaysia).Pada beberapa kali kami telah cuba berunding dengan rangkaian farmasi, tetapi mereka mahu mengenakan bayaran premium tertinggi untuk Parasotin dan menjualnya pada harga beberapa kali lebih tinggi daripada apa yang kita mahukan.

    Institut Parasitologi ialah organisasi bukan untung. Dan kami tidak mahu membuat wang. Kami hanya mahu menawarkan produk ini kepada seluruh penduduk. Jadi kami menjualnya dengan kerugian dan membuat perbezaan dengan mengeksportnya. Dan objektif utama rantaian farmasi adalah untuk mendapatkan wang. Sekarang ini, Institut Perubatan dan Farmakologi Kebangsaan bersama pengeluar Parasotin sendiri telah melancarkan promosi istimewa di mana anda boleh meminta Parasotin dengan diskaun sehingga50%!INSTITUT PERUBATAN DAN FARMAKOLOGI KEBANGSAAN Malaysia mengambil alih separuh daripada pembiayaan itu.

    Perhatian! Kapsul ini sesuai untuk orang dewasa dan kanak-kanak.

    Sekarang adalah penting untuk orang ramai mengetahui tentang kewujudan Parasotin. Saya mahu semua orang memahami kepentingan pencegahan dan rawatan parasit, dan tidak pergi ke doktor lagi dengan akibat dan penyakit yang serius. Cuma ia perlu untuk semua orang yang telah sembuh daripada jangkitan parasit untuk mengesyorkan suplemen ini kepada keluarga dan rakan mereka. Beginilah cara jangkitan ini dikalahkan.

    Jaga kesihatan anda. Anda mungkin tidak menyedarinya, tetapi terdapat 85-95% kemungkinan anda mempunyai parasit yang hidup di dalam diri anda. Ia boleh berada di mana-mana sahaja: dalam darah anda, usus, paru-paru, jantung, otak. . Parasit benar-benar memakan anda dari dalam ke luar, meracuni organisma.

    “Hasilnya ialah rentetan masalah yang boleh memendekkan hayat anda antara 15 hingga 25 tahun. Apatah lagi masalah kematian mengejut yang sering berpunca daripada parasit pada orang dewasa mahupun kanak-kanak. Jangan tunggu sehingga terlambat. Bersihkan badan anda sekarang."

    Rumble link Bitchute link

    This week’s False Flag Weekly News featured J. Michael Springmann and I discussing the historic story “Israel Busted For Genocide.” Needless to say, we sided with the prosecution.

    Then last night I appeared on Charles Moscowitz’s podcast and heard Charles’ brief for the defense. Though I like Charles Moscowitz, and have a fair bit in common with him both philosophically and politically, I find his take on Zionism infuriating. Moscowitz’s new book The Anti-Semitic Imagination goes over a long list of “conspiracy theories” and absolves organized Jewry of involvement in pretty much all of them. Even the conspiracy to invade, occupy, and ethnically-cleanse Palestine, according to Moscowitz, is really the Palestinians’ fault. It’s also the fault of “radical jihadist Islam.” (Eyeball roll.)

    Below are excerpts from the two conversations.

    Kevin Barrett and J. Michael Springmann on Zionist genocide

    Kevin Barrett: Here’s the top war crime story this week: South Africa is leading the prosecution of Israel for genocide in The Hague.

    Sam Husseini (listen to our interview) has been tirelessly pushing this idea for months. Now it finally happened. Shout out to South Africa for making it happen.

    South Africa presented the case for the prosecution last Thursday, and then Friday was Israel’s response. The prosecution’s five-point accusation included mass killings of Palestinians, bodily and mental harm, forced displacement, a food blockade, destruction of the health care system, and preventing Palestinian births. All of these fit the definition of genocide under international law.

    J. Michael Springmann: I think South Africa has it right. Genocide was defined at the convention in 1948, which the Israelis signed and which they got because of the way the Europeans treated the Jews.

    Now they’re claiming that the Palestinians are engaging in genocide against them, when in actual fact the definition is along the lines of trying to wipe out or displace or remove by threats, by statements, by actions and by killings, a people or an ethnic group or a religious group.

    That it pretty much fits the Palestinians. They’re Muslims. They’re a coherent group of people. The Zionists have been working on this since the 20s and 30s with Plan Dalet cooked up by David Ben-Gurion, one of the terrorist leaders of the Haganah. He became a prime minister and he pushed through the genocide, the Nakba, the Holocaust against the Palestinians, in 1948 and subsequently.

    So I think the case is strong. The court has jurisdiction. The only problem is that it doesn’t have any power to enforce its decisions.

    Kevin Barrett: That’s right. But every nation on earth can say that it is enforcing international law once the decision gets handed down. So that means that, for example, the Yemeni government led by the Houthis would have a strong case that it has the right to impose a blockade on the Zionist entity to stop the genocide.

    And of course, that story has been heating up this week. We have had more drone attacks on Israeli oil tankers. And then the Americans went just yesterday and started bombing Yemen. There have been two rounds of bombings. They’ve hit dozens of targets in Yemen. And the Yemenis are up in arms. There is drone footage of millions of people titting the streets.

    Messing with Yemen is not a smart move, as the Saudis learned to their chagrin about seven or eight years ago. So is this going to be another case of a relatively poor and not that heavily armed country like Afghanistan kicking Uncle Sam’s butt?

    J. Michael Springmann: I think so. They’ve done a good job of flooding the Red Sea, which may become the Iron Bottom Sea if they hit enough ships with their missiles and drones. The foolish Americans and the British and the Canadians and the Australians and the Dutch have got themselves in the middle of a hornet’s nest.

    The Yemenis are battle-tested. Tor 10 years they’ve been fighting the Saudis, backed by the United States, and the Saudis couldn’t win, even though they bombed school buses and funeral processions and wedding receptions and so forth. So the Yemenis are tough, they have weapons, they’re not stupid, they’ve repurposed some Scud missiles to improve them and fire them at the Saudis.

    And of course the lamestream media controlled by the Zio-Nazis—that’s an insult to the Nazis actually—they keep claiming that the Iranians are doing all this, the Iranians somehow are backing Hamas and Hezbollah and the Ansar Allah freedom fighters and the people in Iraq and people in Syria. And you think that Iran is this great octopus, but in fact the Americans and the British are creating more problems for themselves, and sooner or later the Houthis are going to hit some very expensive warships and kill a lot of sailors

    Kevin Barrett: Yeah, and then all bets are off. It could be World War III for all we know. And one of the real shameful things about this is that the United States is officially at war, conducting an act of aggression against Yemen, bombing Yemen, killing people. They already killed Yemenis last week. And they’re doing this to protect a genocide. That makes them war criminals of the highest order. And every American leader with any responsibility whatsoever for this needs to be tried, convicted, sentenced and hanged until dead.

    Israel’s Massacre of Journalists

    Kevin Barrett: The Washington Post is the Anglo-Zionist Empire’s propaganda organ, and even they admit that there’s a horrific massacre of journalists going on. Wael Al-Dahdouh just lost his son. He lost most of his family a month and a half ago. And now the Zionists just targeted a car that his son was riding in and murdered him, too. There was a really touching film of his wedding video, the son’s wedding video, with Wael the Father celebrating the wedding. And now here he is with his son’s corpse.

    The Zionists have murdered over 100 journalists, according to the Palestinian authorities, and at least 79 according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. About one out of every 10 reporters in Gaza has been murdered by the Zionists. I guess maybe there’s something they’re trying to hide.

    J. Michael Springmann: Yeah, they’re trying to hide the truth. And if you notice in the picture there, as in all the other pictures, the journalists that have been murdered, like the Al Mayadeen journalist and her cameraman, were all wearing “PRESS” emblazoned across their their flak vest in English and Arabic on their helmets, and yet somehow that this makes them targets instead of protecting them from the crazed creatures that are occupying Palestine and attempting to destroy the rest of the world.


    Kevin Barrett on Charles Moscowtiz’s Podcast (Excerpts)

    Podcast link

    Charles Moscowitz: Kevin, thanks for joining me.

    Kevin Barrett: Hey, it’s good to be with you, Charles.

    Charles Moscowitz: So before we get into the subjects of the day, I wouldn’t mind hearing a little bit about your story and how you arrived at where you are in terms of writing a book like Truth Jihad, your point of view, how it is you became Muslim.

    Kevin Barrett: It’s kind of a long, convoluted story, but basically, I came from a family of lapsed Unitarians, and that’s as lapsed as it gets. We didn’t even go to church to sing Kumbaya.

    Charles Moscowitz: Can I just interject briefly here, because I did, when I was on conventional radio, I used to do a segment on religions, and I’d have various people from all religions join me, and I had someone from the Unitarian Church join me. And I asked her, could you give me a thumbnail sketch on what it is that the Unitarians believe in? Are there any basic principles? And she said to me, funny, you should mention that we have a convention next month, we’re going to be figuring that out.

    Kevin Barrett: Well, I think they figured it out. And they said, “we don’t have any principles.” They actually have an atheist minister now in Madison, Wisconsin, where I went to church maybe two or three times at the Frank Lloyd Wright designed church in Madison when I was a kid.

    So I grew up in a very secular materialistic family, and I had spiritual experiences as a teenager, and knew there was a lot more to life than what the materialist paradigm was presenting. I read widely, looked into Buddhism as well as all sorts of other things when I was young, but I never really got monotheism. When my parents sent me to go to church with a Catholic next door neighbor to see what the Catholics do, it didn’t make any sense to me at all. The notion of this patriarchal God with Jesus as his son who died as redemption for everybody else’s sins, this whole story didn’t make any sense to me. But at the same time, I understood that there’s a real spiritual dimension to life. And so I looked into Buddhism, which did make a fair bit of sense.

    And then in 1989 through the grace of God, what many would call a coincidence or synchronicity, I happened to walk into a class taught by Dr. Jacob Needleman (and wound up reading Traditionalist authors like Guénon, Schuon and Lings, who became Muslims because they understood that Islam was the best-preserved authentic revealed religion as well as the one that is most rationally defensible).

    And the more I looked into it, the more I was convinced that that was the case. Islam also happened to have a very powerful mystical tradition and Sufism is a big part of that. And I very much related to that as well.

    So that’s how I came to Islam. I said, I better go study Arabic and Islamic studies to figure out what the heck I got myself into. So I went back to graduate school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and spent years learning Arabic and studying comparative religion and mostly Islam in the context of North Africa and Sufism.

    I’d probably still be teaching that stuff today, except 9/11 happened. And in late 2003, I heard David Ray Griffin, one of my great heroes—he’s a brilliant scholar, not so much a theologian as a guy who studies empirical reality and tries to figure out scientific questions—looked into 9/11.

    I looked into it, and I saw they (the 9/11 truthers) were right. And so I was very angry and upset again, and I flashed back to my JFK days and said, am I going to spend 6 or 7 years getting tenure and just let this thing go? Hell no.

    So I started doing teach-ins on the University of Wisconsin campus, became locally notorious. I had the first three mainstream pro-9/11 truth op-eds published in a mainstream newspaper in Madison, the Capital Times, and got involved in 9-11 Truth, brought Dr. Griffin to speak in Madison in 2005. I became kind of a figure in the 9/11 Truth movement.

    And then in 2006, when the opposition research guys decided to try to shut down 9/11 truth, because they couldn’t ignore it anymore, they came after me. And so I was basically beat up in mainstream media as “that evil 9/11 truth professor who’s corrupting the youth of Athens.”

    That made me permanently unemployable in the American academy. I lost a tenure-track job as well as any other possibility of employment. And so since then I’ve just been a freelance troublemaker and alternative media type guy like you.

    Charles Moscowitz: Exactly. And I think that people generally are coming around to viewing 9/11 as having more to it than what we were conventionally fed by the media.

    And in my own experience, when I ran for Congress in 2004 against Barney Frank, I discovered that he had authored this amendment to the Immigration and Nationality Act, which basically forbade the United States from denying visas to people who were involved in terrorist activities. And it also had the effect of preventing all of our various so-called national security agencies from talking to each other and exchanging information, which, you know, led me to think that there’s something bigger going on here. There was some kind of an establishment agenda…

    I discovered… there is a peaceful element, or at least an element within Islam, as expressed by the Mufti of Rome, Palasi, who says that Islamic texts, including the Quran and the Hadith, they recognize the, quote, people of the book, which is the Islamic word for the Jews, as being sovereign in that tiny little swath of beachfront known as Israel. And that there’s a religious side to that in that such sovereignty will result in the… I mean, I suppose it’s similar to Christianity in the coming of the Mahdi or the coming of the final prophet and the ushering in of a messianic era.

    And his work has not been refuted by Islamic scholars.

    I don’t think it’s certainly the mainstream.

    But I’m wondering what you think of that, and will you lie, will you come down on that question?

    Kevin Barrett: Well, you and I actually, Charles, are on totally polar opposite sides of that question, even though maybe our philosophical framework isn’t so different. That is, your ideas about the core values of Judaism, which I respect as the core values of Islam and indeed all monotheism…

    (But) I couldn’t come up with somebody who more exemplifies what I would say is the absolutely, just utterly wrong position on Zionism, as you.

    My view of it—and I realize this is probably going to sound shocking or strange to you— agrees with Sheikh Imran Hussein’s interpretation of eschatology. And essentially, as I see it, Charles, Zionism is Antichrist or Dajjal. It’s a false messiah.

    I think that it began with Shabtai Zvi and Jacob Frank, who you agree are false messiahs and false prophets. And I agree with the Neturei Karta people from the Jewish viewpoint that God is asking all of us to be the best people that we can and to offer complete and perfect justice to everybody regardless of their nominal faith or ethnicity or religious affiliation or what have you. And I think Zionism is an expression of a pernicious and toxic Jewish supremacism that has been part of the shadow side of the Jewish faith.

    And from a Muslim perspective, we would say that emerges in part because of what we see as inaccuracies in the Torah, leading to abominations in the Talmud.

    And I think that the notion of a chosen people is, well, problematic. Of course, it can be interpreted in a way that encourages good behavior, which is your interpretation, and I honor that. But it also lends itself to interpretations that basically create a kind of supremacism that denies the rights of others and denies the viewpoints of others.

    And I think your book’s approach to Zionism horrifically denies the viewpoint and the rights and the human dignity of others, non-Zionists and non-Jews, especially Palestinians, who are the victims of genocide. And they didn’t start being the victims of genocide on October 7th. The’ve been victims of genocide nonstop ever since the earliest Zionists, who were mostly atheists and satanists, showed up in Palestine with a supremacist attitude. Rather than being immigrants who were going to work with the local people and help them and be part of their community, these people were supremacists who said, “it’s going to be a Jewish state. Jews are going to rule. Jews are the chosen people here. And we’re ultimately going to have to expel these native Palestinians.” And all the founders of Zionism knew they were going to have to commit genocide, that is expel, destroy, the local Palestinian community.

    Now that’s unacceptable, Charles. And I’ll tell you one of the reasons why. Not only because it requires genocide against the Palestinians, but also because that holy land is holy to all of us. It’s holy to Christians, to Jews, and to Muslims. Whoever has custody over that land has to administer it with perfect justice for all faiths. No special dispensations for any faith.

    The monotheists today consist of about 15 million Jews, 2 billion Muslims, and 3 billion Christians. So there are five billion monotheists today (who honor Abraham and the prophets) who are Muslim and Christian. And there are 15 million who are Jewish. All of those five billion plus people have equal rights to being equal citizens in every possible sense in that holy land.

    If I said, “it should be a Muslim state in which only Muslims are allowed to immigrate there, only Muslims are allowed to have the best property, Muslims are going to put up checkpoints so all the non-Muslims basically have to go through apartheid checkpoints to go to the store every day, Muslims are going to be shooting non-Muslim children for sport, which happens on a regular basis in Israel as the Israeli Defense Forces literally murder Palestinian children for sport on a constant basis and never face any consequences…

    If the Muslims acted like this against the Jews and the Christians in that holy land, it would be an abomination.

    So, the fact that this grotesquely deluded and egotistical and egocentric and arguably tribally psychopathic group of 15 million of the world’s 5 billion monotheists has seen fit to invade the Holy Land and commit genocide against the people who live there and erect a supremacist, apartheid, genocidal entity there and call it some kind of quasi-messianic entity and bow down and worship this genocidal entity as a golden calf–that’s Antichrist, that’s Dajjal, that’s the False Prophet, that’s another Shabtai Zvi.

    So I think that you’ve made a terrible mistake. I think you’re a good man, I think your basic values are good. But I think you’ve made a horrific mistake by grossly misinterpreting Israel, reading the history from a very, very biased viewpoint, an utterly one-sided viewpoint, that denies the story of the other, denies the humanity of the other, denies the facts that we all should be agreeing on, and instead replaces them with big lies and propaganda that are completely false about the history of what’s happened there.

And in late 2003, I heard David Ray Griffin, one of my great heroes—he’s a brilliant scholar, not so much a theologian as a guy who studies empirical reality and tries to figure out scientific questions—looked into 9/11. I looked into it, and I saw they (the 9/11 truthers) were right. And so I was very angry and upset again, and I flashed back to my JFK days and said, am I going to spend 6 or 7 years getting tenure and just let this thing go? Hell no. So I started doing teach-ins on the University of Wisconsin campus, became locally notorious. I had the first three mainstream pro-9/11 truth op-eds published in a mainstream newspaper in Madison, the Capital Times, and got involved in 9-11 Truth, brought Dr. Griffin to speak in Madison in 2005. I became kind of a figure in the 9/11 Truth movement. And then in 2006, when the opposition research guys decided to try to shut down 9/11 truth, because they couldn’t ignore it anymore, they came after me. And so I was basically beat up in mainstream media as “that evil 9/11 truth professor who’s corrupting the youth of Athens.” That made me permanently unemployable in the American academy. I lost a tenure-track job as well as any other possibility of employment. And so since then I’ve just been a freelance troublemaker and alternative media type guy like you. Charles Moscowitz: Exactly. And I think that people generally are coming around to viewing 9/11 as having more to it than what we were conventionally fed by the media. And in my own experience, when I ran for Congress in 2004 against Barney Frank, I discovered that he had authored this amendment to the Immigration and Nationality Act, which basically forbade the United States from denying visas to people who were involved in terrorist activities. And it also had the effect of preventing all of our various so-called national security agencies from talking to each other and exchanging information, which, you know, led me to think that there’s something bigger going on here. There was some kind of an establishment agenda… I discovered… there is a peaceful element, or at least an element within Islam, as expressed by the Mufti of Rome, Palasi, who says that Islamic texts, including the Quran and the Hadith, they recognize the, quote, people of the book, which is the Islamic word for the Jews, as being sovereign in that tiny little swath of beachfront known as Israel. And that there’s a religious side to that in that such sovereignty will result in the… I mean, I suppose it’s similar to Christianity in the coming of the Mahdi or the coming of the final prophet and the ushering in of a messianic era. And his work has not been refuted by Islamic scholars. I don’t think it’s certainly the mainstream. But I’m wondering what you think of that, and will you lie, will you come down on that question? Kevin Barrett: Well, you and I actually, Charles, are on totally polar opposite sides of that question, even though maybe our philosophical framework isn’t so different. That is, your ideas about the core values of Judaism, which I respect as the core values of Islam and indeed all monotheism… (But) I couldn’t come up with somebody who more exemplifies what I would say is the absolutely, just utterly wrong position on Zionism, as you. My view of it—and I realize this is probably going to sound shocking or strange to you— agrees with Sheikh Imran Hussein’s interpretation of eschatology. And essentially, as I see it, Charles, Zionism is Antichrist or Dajjal. It’s a false messiah. I think that it began with Shabtai Zvi and Jacob Frank, who you agree are false messiahs and false prophets. And I agree with the Neturei Karta people from the Jewish viewpoint that God is asking all of us to be the best people that we can and to offer complete and perfect justice to everybody regardless of their nominal faith or ethnicity or religious affiliation or what have you. And I think Zionism is an expression of a pernicious and toxic Jewish supremacism that has been part of the shadow side of the Jewish faith. And from a Muslim perspective, we would say that emerges in part because of what we see as inaccuracies in the Torah, leading to abominations in the Talmud. And I think that the notion of a chosen people is, well, problematic. Of course, it can be interpreted in a way that encourages good behavior, which is your interpretation, and I honor that. But it also lends itself to interpretations that basically create a kind of supremacism that denies the rights of others and denies the viewpoints of others. And I think your book’s approach to Zionism horrifically denies the viewpoint and the rights and the human dignity of others, non-Zionists and non-Jews, especially Palestinians, who are the victims of genocide. And they didn’t start being the victims of genocide on October 7th. The’ve been victims of genocide nonstop ever since the earliest Zionists, who were mostly atheists and satanists, showed up in Palestine with a supremacist attitude. Rather than being immigrants who were going to work with the local people and help them and be part of their community, these people were supremacists who said, “it’s going to be a Jewish state. Jews are going to rule. Jews are the chosen people here. And we’re ultimately going to have to expel these native Palestinians.” And all the founders of Zionism knew they were going to have to commit genocide, that is expel, destroy, the local Palestinian community. Now that’s unacceptable, Charles. And I’ll tell you one of the reasons why. Not only because it requires genocide against the Palestinians, but also because that holy land is holy to all of us. It’s holy to Christians, to Jews, and to Muslims. Whoever has custody over that land has to administer it with perfect justice for all faiths. No special dispensations for any faith. The monotheists today consist of about 15 million Jews, 2 billion Muslims, and 3 billion Christians. So there are five billion monotheists today (who honor Abraham and the prophets) who are Muslim and Christian. And there are 15 million who are Jewish. All of those five billion plus people have equal rights to being equal citizens in every possible sense in that holy land. If I said, “it should be a Muslim state in which only Muslims are allowed to immigrate there, only Muslims are allowed to have the best property, Muslims are going to put up checkpoints so all the non-Muslims basically have to go through apartheid checkpoints to go to the store every day, Muslims are going to be shooting non-Muslim children for sport, which happens on a regular basis in Israel as the Israeli Defense Forces literally murder Palestinian children for sport on a constant basis and never face any consequences… If the Muslims acted like this against the Jews and the Christians in that holy land, it would be an abomination. So, the fact that this grotesquely deluded and egotistical and egocentric and arguably tribally psychopathic group of 15 million of the world’s 5 billion monotheists has seen fit to invade the Holy Land and commit genocide against the people who live there and erect a supremacist, apartheid, genocidal entity there and call it some kind of quasi-messianic entity and bow down and worship this genocidal entity as a golden calf–that’s Antichrist, that’s Dajjal, that’s the False Prophet, that’s another Shabtai Zvi. So I think that you’ve made a terrible mistake. I think you’re a good man, I think your basic values are good. But I think you’ve made a horrific mistake by grossly misinterpreting Israel, reading the history from a very, very biased viewpoint, an utterly one-sided viewpoint, that denies the story of the other, denies the humanity of the other, denies the facts that we all should be agreeing on, and instead replaces them with big lies and propaganda that are completely false about the history of what’s happened there.

    In Rafah, southern Gaza, 16 people were killed by Israeli forces on Thursday when the home sheltering them was bombed, reported Al Jazeera, which expects the death toll to rise as more bodies are found in the rubble.

    Abu Khaled, a relative of those killed in the attack, told the network, “They fled their homes in Gaza City to the Bureij refugee camp to Khan Younis before coming to Rafah because they thought it was safer.”

    Although the U.S. claims that Israel is beginning to lower the intensity of their attacks on Gaza, Palestinians living in the besieged enclave have noticed no changes in Israel’s bombardment.

    “The strikes have not stopped over the last few hours across the Gaza Strip, despite the fact that Israel says that they’re moving to a completely new phase with low-intensity bombing,” Al Jazeera correspondent Tareq Abu Azzoum reported from Rafah in southern Gaza.

    “We can see that the death toll and casualties among civilians keeps rising, to reach more than 163 Palestinians killed in the past 24 hours,” Abu Azzoum said Wednesday evening.

    “Every day, hundreds of us are killed,” Abu Khaled added, “If we’re not killed by the bombs, we die from the cold, or starvation, or from disease.”

    According to the UN, every single person in the Gaza Strip is hungry, with a quarter of the population facing starvation. Residents of the besieged enclaves make up 80 percent of the world’s collective population facing famine or catastrophic hunger.

    “In addition, all children under five – 335,000 of them – are at high risk of severe malnutrition as the risk of famine conditions continues to increase, a whole generation is now in danger of suffering from stunting,” the humanitarian group said.

    The UN’s humanitarian agency’s (OCHA) latest update, which has been limited to Israel’s ongoing telecommunications blackout imposed on the besieged enclave, said that a missile reportedly struck the UNRWA health clinic in Daraj, in Gaza City on Wednesday.

    The humanitarian group also reported heavy bombardment in the Khan Younis area for the last two days, targeting residential buildings, a cemetery, and hospitals.

    “Initial reports and video footage show that much of the al-Namsawi cemetery was destroyed and graves empty with some corpses reportedly missing,” it said.

    “The people of Gaza have moved from the sheer shock of losing everything – in some cases every member of their family – to a debilitating struggle to stay alive and protect their loved ones,” said UNRWA Commissioner Philippe Lazzarini after his fourth trip to Gaza since October 7.

    Amnesty International has said the telecommunications blackout, which has entered its seventh day, has put civilians at risk, hampered the work of rescue services, and complicated aid delivery efforts.

    “These recurrent and life-threatening blackouts must not be normalized. An immediate ceasefire is critical to urgently restore power and connectivity to Gazans,” the group said, adding that the communications blackout is the ninth imposed by Israeli forces since the beginning of the current round of fighting.

    “This has gone on for far too long. There are no winners in these wars. There is endless chaos and growing despair. I call once again for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire to bring some respite,” Lazzarini added.

    Healthcare: Still a target

    Over 61,000 people have been wounded by Israel’s aggression on Gaza, which has left healthcare workers and humanitarian staff overwhelmed as undersupplied hospitals witness people die in front of them every day.

    “I’ve seen children full of shrapnel dying on the floor because there are not the supplies in the emergency department, and the healthcare workers … to care for them,” Sean Casey of the World Health Organization said after a visit to several of Gaza’s hospitals.

    “Doctors can’t find anything to treat their patients, now they just use salt. Even salt is $13 per kilogramme. Can you imagine putting salt on people’s wounds to disinfect them?” displaced Palestinian Ibrahim Baraikat told Al Jazeera.

    “We’ve reached a critical point. People are dying and they don’t even have painkillers.”

    To make matters worse, hospitals have been repeatedly targeted by Israel’s military, making it impossible for patients to remain safe as they receive treatment.

    On Wednesday, the Jordanian field hospital in the southern city of Khan Younis was badly damaged as a result of Israeli shelling in the vicinity.

    Wafa reported that a Palestinian citizen, who was receiving treatment in the ICU, was injured by shrapnel and a bullet during the Israeli attack and that the hospital was subjected to severe material damage as a result of the continuous Israeli bombing.

    Despite the damages, the hospital remains adamant that it will continue to operate.

    The Jordanian Armed Forces have said they hold Israel fully accountable for the safety of the hospital’s staff, who are performing their humanitarian role by international laws and norms, added Wafa.

    Meanwhile, pregnant women in Gaza are experiencing a 300% increase in miscarriages, which has been caused by the limited medical supplies and access to health centers, putting them at an increased risk of infection, Nour Beydoun, regional adviser on protection and gender in emergencies for humanitarian agency CARE, told Jezebel.

    Beydoun added that another reason for the increase is that pregnant women lack proper food and nutrition, resulting in poor fetal health.

    Israel’s “draconian” measure to restrict dissent

    Meanwhile, in Israel, authorities have been cracking down on Palestinians “for simply expressing their views or opinions on various online platforms, through a variety of measures including censorship, surveillance and arrests,” says 7amleh, The Arab Center for the Advancement of Social Media, as cited by Al Jazeera.

    7amleh says since October 7, Israel has introduced “draconian legislation” to restrict freedom of expression and criticism of its actions in Gaza.

    “The most notable measures included mass content removals and extensive ‘shadowbanning’ of users criticizing Israel or posting in support of Palestinians. During Israel’s war on Gaza, these content restrictions and removals soared to unprecedented levels,” it noted.

    “Users of Meta’s platforms, including journalists, activists, media pages, and those simply documenting reality on the ground or posting in support of Palestinian rights, were subject to account banning, content removal, and other restrictive measures,” the group continued.

    Israel has also planned to indict Israeli politician Ofer Cassif, a member of the Knesset for the Hadash-Ta’al party, on charges of aggravated assault on a police officer that took place in 2022, The Times of Israel reports.

    It is unclear why the indictment is proceeding in January 2024, however, it is essential to note that Cassif recently declared his backing for South Africa’s genocide case against Israel at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

    The politician has also been in the spotlight for his comments against members of the government, saying they are “calling for ethnic cleansing and even actual genocide” against Palestinians.

    U.S. intimidation tactics not working on Yemen

    On Wednesday, the U.S. designated Ansar Allah as a “terrorist” group for its attacks on shipping vessels in the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden.

    “Today, in response to these continuing threats and attacks, the United States announced the designation of Ansar Allah, also known as the Houthis, as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist,” White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said in a statement on Wednesday afternoon.

    The designation comes into effect in 30 days and could be reevaluated if the Yemeni group ceases attacks in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden.

    “This designation is more like an insult. It’s the old glove in the face – slap someone with your glove. You’re sort of challenging but not really hurting them,” Nabeel Khoury, a former deputy chief of mission at the U.S. embassy in Yemen, told Al Jazeera.

    Khoury said Ansar Allah would likely see the move as an “insult” and “provocation” that could lead to further escalation. He called the Biden administration’s strategic motivation “baffling.”

    “I think the idea from the Biden administration is this will intimidate and this will stop further widening of the war,” Khoury said. “But if it has the opposite effect, which I think is more likely, then you are widening the war and opening yourself up and American presence to further attacks. And so the only possible thing I see is negative or potential further escalation.”

    Ansar Allah spokesperson Mohammed Abdulsalam told Al Jazeera that the group would not stop its attacks on ships heading to Israel from the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea.

    Abdulsalam said the group would “not back down in its position in support of the Palestinian people,” adding that the U.S. had no power to implement its decision against the Houthis and denied reports that Iran has been supplying arms to the group.

    Hours after the U.S. announcement, the Yemeni group targeted a U.S. ship in the Gulf of Aden, achieving “precise and direct” hits.

    “The Yemeni armed forces reaffirm that the response to the American and British aggression is inevitable, and no aggression will pass without response or punishment,” said Ansar Allah.

    The U.S. later launched yet another barrage of missiles at Yemen.

    Sullivan’s statement added that the re-designation of Ansar Allah, which comes with harsh sanctions, will not hurt the people of Yemen since the sanctions will include “unprecedented” humanitarian carve-outs.

    Still, “rights advocates have warned that blacklisting the Houthis would complicate the work of humanitarian organizations operating in areas under the group’s control. Yemen is enduring one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises where millions of people are dependent on international aid,” reported Al Jazeera.

    Hamas has denounced the U.S. designation of Ansar Allah as a ‘terrorist’ group, describing the Biden administration’s decision as “politicized,” saying that the move shows Washington’s “blatant bias” and aims to protect Israel as it continues its “barbaric aggression and genocide” in Gaza.

    Over 30 hours of Israeli terror in West Bank city

    In the occupied West Bank, Israeli forces have continued their overnight rampages in Palestinian neighborhoods and cities, which often turn deadly and have resulted in dozens of arrests.

    The military has wreaked havoc in Tulkarem for two days straight now, demolishing infrastructure, destroying homes, beating and arresting residents, and killing the Palestinian city’s youth. It is unclear when the deadly raid will end.

    Since the military invasion began, seven Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces.

    The Office of the UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said the killings of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank have raised concerns of “unlawful” lethal attacks by the Israeli military.

    “Unlawful killings of Palestinians must end,” the OHCHR’s Palestine office said.

    “Israel must ensure a prompt, independent and effective investigation” of the killings, as “according to initial information, both cases raise concerns of unlawful killings,” it continued.

He called the Biden administration’s strategic motivation “baffling.” “I think the idea from the Biden administration is this will intimidate and this will stop further widening of the war,” Khoury said. “But if it has the opposite effect, which I think is more likely, then you are widening the war and opening yourself up and American presence to further attacks. And so the only possible thing I see is negative or potential further escalation.” Ansar Allah spokesperson Mohammed Abdulsalam told Al Jazeera that the group would not stop its attacks on ships heading to Israel from the Red Sea and the Arabian Sea. Abdulsalam said the group would “not back down in its position in support of the Palestinian people,” adding that the U.S. had no power to implement its decision against the Houthis and denied reports that Iran has been supplying arms to the group. Hours after the U.S. announcement, the Yemeni group targeted a U.S. ship in the Gulf of Aden, achieving “precise and direct” hits. “The Yemeni armed forces reaffirm that the response to the American and British aggression is inevitable, and no aggression will pass without response or punishment,” said Ansar Allah. The U.S. later launched yet another barrage of missiles at Yemen. Sullivan’s statement added that the re-designation of Ansar Allah, which comes with harsh sanctions, will not hurt the people of Yemen since the sanctions will include “unprecedented” humanitarian carve-outs. Still, “rights advocates have warned that blacklisting the Houthis would complicate the work of humanitarian organizations operating in areas under the group’s control. Yemen is enduring one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises where millions of people are dependent on international aid,” reported Al Jazeera. Hamas has denounced the U.S. designation of Ansar Allah as a ‘terrorist’ group, describing the Biden administration’s decision as “politicized,” saying that the move shows Washington’s “blatant bias” and aims to protect Israel as it continues its “barbaric aggression and genocide” in Gaza. Over 30 hours of Israeli terror in West Bank city In the occupied West Bank, Israeli forces have continued their overnight rampages in Palestinian neighborhoods and cities, which often turn deadly and have resulted in dozens of arrests. The military has wreaked havoc in Tulkarem for two days straight now, demolishing infrastructure, destroying homes, beating and arresting residents, and killing the Palestinian city’s youth. It is unclear when the deadly raid will end. Since the military invasion began, seven Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces. The Office of the UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said the killings of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank have raised concerns of “unlawful” lethal attacks by the Israeli military. “Unlawful killings of Palestinians must end,” the OHCHR’s Palestine office said. “Israel must ensure a prompt, independent and effective investigation” of the killings, as “according to initial information, both cases raise concerns of unlawful killings,” it continued.

  • Wikipedia’s Smear Piece on WCH Represents a Badge of Honour
    The World Council for Health's message of health sovereignty is clearly a threat to the establishment.

    World Council for Health
    Written by World Council for Health Correspondent Alice Ashwell, PhD.


    They say that you pick up the most flack when you’re right over the target.

    Since the Covid phenomenon began, the degree of flack has become a navigational aid in the pursuit of Truth. Wikipedia’s hit piece on the World Council for Health (WCH) is evidence that their message of health sovereignty has become a threat to the establishment.

    Brainwashing goes global

    Ever more brazenly over the past four years, members of the ‘Great Reset Establishment’ have been involved in a process of what Psychoanalyst Dr Bruce Scott calls ‘menticide’, or brainwashing on a global scale. Through the unethical use of applied psychology, governments, corporations, and organisations around the world have been manipulating the masses into compliance with their globalist agenda.

    Whether the issue has been Covid-19, the war in Ukraine, economic meltdown, or climate hysteria, the outcome has been an environment of heightened fear and uncertainty. People seeking direction have been subjected to unprecedented levels of propaganda and censorship, which have added to the confusion by creating a ‘through-the-looking-glass’ world in which it feels like truths have become lies, and vice versa.

    Wikipedia - no longer reliable

    One of the ‘trusted’ sources we have become accustomed to turning to when seeking information on a host of topics is Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. This online encyclopedia was established in 2001 with the aim of being a free, open, and neutral source of information that anyone could access and edit. The idea was that all sides of controversial issues would be welcomed and readers would be left to make up their own minds. But, as Wikipedia co-founder-turned-critic Larry Sanger complained in an interview with Glenn Greenwald in July 2023, “It didn’t work out that way.”

    Over time, the platform has moved away from its non-negotiable editorial policy that content should strive to reflect a ‘neutral point of view’ (NPOV). As Kristin Heflin described in her PhD thesis in 2010, this means that:

    … all Wikipedia content must represent―fairly, proportionately, and as far as possible without bias, all significant views that have been published by reliable sources. By insisting articles represent [―] all significant views without bias, the policy of striving for NPOV shares similarities with objectivity … (p. 89)

    In 2015, Heather Ford observed in her D. Phil. Thesis that Wikipedia was by that time offering “a skewed representation of the world that favours some groups at the expense of others” (p. 3). She continued:

    Instead of everyone having the same power to represent their views on Wikipedia, those who understand how to perform and speak according to Wikipedia's complex technical, symbolic and policy vocabulary tend to prevail over those who possess disciplinary knowledge about the subject being represented.

    This means that Wikipedia is able to decide which facts are stabilised or destabilised on its platform, according to the ideological positions of its editors. While Wikipedia originally provided the opportunity for people to publish without the need for gatekeepers or mediators, this is no longer the case. Especially since the Covid-19 event boosted the fortunes of the Censorship Industrial Complex, Wikipedians have become foot soldiers in the battle to scrub from the Internet information they consider to be mis-, dis-, or mal-information.

    Larry Sanger, in the interview mentioned above, described how he has watched Wikipedia’s neutrality evaporate over the years, shifting around 2005 to establishment views on topics like global warming and certain drugs, and starting to show bias against holistic medicine in the early 2010s. Its reliable sources of information are now left-of-centre media corporations such as CNN, MSNBC, and the New York Times, while in their policies 80% of news sources on the right are deemed unreliable. Independent news outlets and self-published subject experts are also not able to edit a Wikipedia page. Before it is deemed acceptable, information needs to be filtered through a mainstream news source, which in turn is constrained by fact-checking services.

    Misrepresenting Covid dissidents

    The World Council for Health (WCH) is one of many organisations and individuals who have been defamed by Wikipedia since the advent of Covid-19. As discussed at the WCH’s 83rd General Assembly meeting in April 2023, this has been part of a much broader strategy to silence dissent with regard to the so-called pandemic and its protocols.

    WCH was established to challenge the official Covid response and its Wikipedia article was created in September 2022. The current Wikipedia entry is fairly close to the original version, although it has been edited a number of times. However, a number of Wikipedia pages created prior to Covid-19 have been completely amended since 2020, resulting in a ‘hero-to-zero’ fall from grace for people such as the author Dr Vernon Coleman (compare his October 2019 entry with the current article), and the early developer of the mRNA vaccine technology, Dr Robert Malone, whose role in this invention has been deleted from the page on mRNA vaccines.



    https://worldcouncilforhealth.org/multimedia/fact-checkers-independent-media/
    Who’s fact-checking the fact-checkers? A trio of independent media creators—Derrick Broze, Jason Bassler & Joe Martino—reveal their eye-opening shared experience in dealing with fact-checkers and censorship dating back years before Covid-19 emerged.


    Scarcely worth commenting on … but we shall!

    Let’s take a look at the WCH Wikipedia article (accessed 18 December 2023) to see just how deeply flawed and factually incorrect it is.

    Firstly, the content – comprising just eight paragraphs – is entirely inadequate. Other than stating that the organisation “appears to have been formed in September 2021” [emphasis mine], and that it was “founded by Jennifer A. Hibberd and Tess Lawrie”, nothing substantive is mentioned about what WCH is or what it does, despite its goals, values, and initiatives being clearly represented on its website and social media channels.

    Secondly, most of the article attempts to smear WCH by association. The bulk of the content refers to people or organisations who are part of the broader health freedom network but neither WCH staff nor council members, including Robert F Kennedy Jr of Children’s Health Defense and esteemed cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra. Wikipedia maligns these experts for their efforts to cancel the rollout of the experimental Covid-19 gene therapies which, contrary to the protestations of the fact-checkers, have caused millions of deaths worldwide. Ironically, Wikipedia accuses Dr Malhotra of “cherry-picking” sources to substantiate his concerns about the jab, yet they themselves cherry-pick tangential content and questionable opinions from, with only two exceptions, rather dubious sources.

    So, thirdly, let’s have a look at the references Wikipedia uses to back up its potentially libelous statements.

    The reference to Kerr et. al (March 2022) is simply a brief Erratum, noting that some of the authors of the paper quoted were using ivermectin to treat patients, which one would expect as they were reporting on its efficacy.

    The flawed Cochrane Review by Popp et. al (2022) that criticised a systematic review by Bryant et. al (2021) on the use of ivermectin to prevent and treat Covid-19 was thoroughly debunked in a letter sent to them by Fordham and colleagues in September 2021, but this has not been acknowledged on Wikipedia. The Bryant et al review remains in the top 10 most read out of 23 million tracked scientific papers.

    Three references are to fact-checking sites: AAP FactCheck (Australia), AFP Fact Check (France), and Health Feedback (USA), which employ teams of people to prevent the dissemination of information that is not in line with the menticidal narratives of the Great Reset Establishment.

    Four of the nine sources come from two Vice magazine journalists, Anna Merlan and Tim Hume. Their articles are replete with worn-out terms such as right-wing, conspiracy theorist, Covid-denier, anti-vaxxer, and mis-/disinformation-peddler. They also predictably take issue with ivermectin, common law, and even the notion of sovereign citizens! The tone of the articles ranges from wryly dismissive to scathingly scornful, with words such as discredited, nonsense, completely false, misleading, and fringe peppering the text. They also delight in reporting cases of doctors and scientists who have been barred from their professions for refusing to deny their professional oaths and personal principles. Underlying the supercilious slurs, however, runs a definite current of concern that these ‘discredited conspiracy theorists’ who are promoting health, freedom, and human rights may actually be gaining traction.

    Larry Sanger reflects on how far Wikipedia has departed from its original commitment to neutrality by pointing out the features of biased reporting, all of which apply to the Wikipedia article on WCH:

    negative information is so predominant that readers can infer that the authors harbor great hatred, resentment, or strong disapproval of the subject (especially when the target has a popular following among many ordinary people);

    dismissive epithets and judgments are used in Wikipedia’s own voice; or

    what a person is legitimately famous for is omitted, dismissed, or misrepresented

    While WCH might wish to create a more accurate Wikipedia entry, this is not possible. According to the view source button, only registered users are allowed to edit this article. In other words, WCH has no right of reply.


    Wikipedia, like a child having a tantrum, refuses point-blank to engage with those people and ideas it just WILL NOT acknowledge.
    Is there a future for Wikipedia?

    Why anyone would bother to search Wikipedia for information about WCH, which has a perfectly informative website and Substack, is anyone’s guess. But the more Wikipedia produces atrocious articles like the one on WCH, the faster they will lose credibility among those who simply want information and do not have an ideological axe to grind.

    In fact, it is worth subjecting this article to a well-known credibility test developed by California State University, and appropriately named the CRAAP test!

    Its five components (plus comments on the WCH article) include:

    Currency: Is the source up-to-date? – No, for one thing, it does not mention WCH’s second conference in 2023. Although editing of the Wikipedia article continues, no up-to-date information has been added.

    Relevance: Is the source relevant to your research? – Not if one wants to know anything about WCH. But it has been very relevant to an investigation into the decline and fall of Wikipedia.

    Authority: Where is the source published? Who is the author? Are they considered reputable and trustworthy in their field? – Absolutely not. Wikipedia’s policy on Reliable Sources specifically discounts independent experts in favour of large news corporations, which are committed to promoting Establishment narratives.

    Accuracy: Is the source supported by evidence? Are the claims cited correctly? – Not at all. Please visit the WCH website to confirm this.

    Purpose: What was the motive behind publishing this source? – The only purpose appears to be to discredit WCH.

    At least in the case of the WCH article, Wikipedia’s credibility is clearly questionable. More broadly, Wikipedia co-founder, Larry Sanger, believes that the platform can no longer be trusted. Observing that it has become a useful propaganda mouthpiece for the Establishment, he mused: “If only one version of the facts is allowed, then that gives a huge incentive to wealthy and powerful people to seize control of things like Wikipedia in order to shore up their power.”

    Indeed, in recent years, Google has invested substantially in the Wikipedia Foundation, paying them to provide the “most accurate and up-to-date information” for its search engine. Google is now elevating Wikipedia articles in Internet searches, using their content to populate their ‘knowledge panels’, and inserting their articles under videos on YouTube (its subsidiary) in an effort “to fight misinformation and conspiracy theories.” In this way, the actual spreaders of misinformation flood the Internet with their post-truth propaganda, causing those who value Truth, Beauty, and Goodness to look elsewhere for information.

    What is particularly interesting, though, is that the Wikipedia edifice may be crumbling from within. Thanks to the transparency of the Wikimedia system, one is able to peer behind the curtain into the online discussions of the various editors working on a particular article. And here we discover dissention in the ranks. Recent discussions between Wikipedia editors working on the WCH article reveal anything but agreement regarding this flimsy hit-piece. For example, one editor asks why the article on WCH focuses on Dr Lawrie. The person then asks why Dr Lawrie’s qualifications, directorship, publication record, and over 4,000 citations are not mentioned (actually Dr Lawrie has over 5,000 citations and is ranked among the top 5% of Researchgate scientists), but only her prior role as an obstetrician. It is encouraging to read the following comment:

    Science is research and debate, not dogma; even in the case Lawrie could be wrong on some things, that doesnt's [sic.] make her a conspiracy theorist, but a good researcher. Suppression of scientific debate is not scientific method.

    Later, and for good reason, concerns are expressed about the use of Vice magazine as a ‘reliable source’ (RS).


    Anna Merlan, author of three of the Vice articles.
    Conclusion

    WCH’s Wikipedia experience is the tip of a very large iceberg of censorship and suppression (Shi-Raz et al. 2023) that, especially over the past four years, has been threatening to sink those opposing Establishment narratives. Media and tech companies, including Wikipedia, Google, and the fact-checkers mentioned in this article, have played a central role in stifling debate and attempting to constrain narratives and minds. But, as Larry Sanger puts it, “people have natural BS detectors” and are not satisfied with condescending journalists or one flavour of opinion.

    Instead, as described by Shi-Raz et al., many people who are concerned about public health and committed to freedom of speech have not been deterred by the efforts of the Establishment. Instead, they have been motivated to create a world in parallel to the mainstream, using alternative channels of communication, establishing multi-disciplinary support networks, and developing alternative medical and health information systems such as, of course, the World Council for Health.

    And, recognising the decline of Wikipedia, Larry Sanger is in the process of creating what he calls the ‘Encyclosphere’, a massive network of online encyclopaedias covering a plethora of specialist and generalist areas of knowledge, that is set to literally put Wikipedia in its place as an equal among many others.

    So, while Wikipedia spends an inordinate amount of time, energy, and money on a business that not only lacks substance but is also mean-spirited and divisive, initiatives like WCH and the Encyclosphere shine like candles in the dark, illuminating a better way.
