“Sound the Trumpet Sunday” on June 5th 2022

National Urban League Confronts Racial Hatred and Gun Violence with “Sound the Trumpet Sunday” on June 5th https://bit.ly/3m8C8uD

Before we can even properly process and mourn #Uvalde and #Buffalo and the hundreds of mass shootings since the start of this year, yet another gunman has caused destruction at a #Tulsa hospital.

This must end.

Congress has ignored this crisis for far too long. And we can’t accept its lack of action.

After Uvalde Shooting,

Schools around US are banning backpacks,

Ending school early and Hiring Guards

“In light of the tragedy in Uvalde, there has been an enormous amount of stress and trauma. Unfortunately, more stress and trauma are added with ‘copy-cat threats’ that start circulating such as the one that was sent today for Gillett (Middle School),” Superintendent Dr. Cissy Reynolds-Perez wrote in a statement on the district’s website.

How Should Muslims Deal with Homosexuality

Our Religion has forbidden extramarital and premarital sex, so how can anybody believe that same sex intercourse is ethical and moral . . . .

Here GOD specifically directs a Man and Woman in sex,

who is to have sex with whom and when they can and cannot.

Respite from Punishment

Watch your Words!

“And if an evil whisper comes to you from Satan, then seek refuge with GOD. Indeed, GOD is All-Hearer, All-Knower;” Quran 7:200.

GOD encourages lenient treatment of evil doers, for this might deter them from persistence in their evil, GOD Willing,

(then verily he, between whom and you there was enmity, (will become) as though he was a close friend), Quran 41:34.

GOD also encourages seeking refuge with Him from the devils of the Jinn. The devil will not be deterred if one is lenient with him, because he seeks your destruction and total demise. The devil to you, O mankind, is an open enemy, just as he was for your father before you.

Ibn Jarir said, while explaining the statement of GOD:

(And if an evil whisper comes to you from Satan). “If the devil lures you to get angry, thus directing you away from forgiving the ignorant and towards punishing him: فَاسْتَعِذْ بِاللهِ

(then seek refuge with GOD.)

GOD commands here to seek refuge with Him from the devil’s whispers: إِنَّهُ سَمِيْعٌ عَلِيْمٌ

(Verily, He is All-Hearer, All-Knower.) GOD hears the ignorance that the fools subject you to, your seeking refuge with Him from the devil’s whispers, and the rest of the speech of His creation; none of it escapes His Knowledge. He knows what drives the lures of the devil away from you, as well as, the rest of what His creatures do.”

“If a suggestion from Satan assaults your (mind), seek refuge with GOD; for He hears and Knows (all things).”

“Those who fear GOD, when a thought of evil from Satan assaults them, bring GOD to remembrance, when lo they see (aright)!” Quran 7:200-201.

Word of GOD, in Bible and Quran

” . . it (The Word of GOD) Judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from the sight of GOD. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to Whom we must give account.” – Bible


“To GOD belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth. Whether you show what is in your mind or conceal it, GOD calls you to account for it. He forgives whom He pleases and punishes whom He pleases. For GOD has Power over all things.” – Quran

From Columbine to Robb, 169 dead in US mass school shootings

There have been 27 school shootings this year. There have been 119 school shootings since 2018, when Education Week began tracking such incidents. The highest number of shootings, 34, occurred last year. There were 10 shootings in 2020, and 24 each in 2019 and 2018. – EducationWeek

Mass shooters have killed hundreds of people throughout U.S. history in realms like stores, theaters and workplaces, but it is in schools and colleges where the carnage reverberates perhaps most keenly — places filled with children of tender ages, older students aspiring to new heights and the teachers planting the seeds of knowledge, their journeys all cut short.

Two weeks of bullets and death in America


The wave of violence this month has been relentless, deepening a gnawing sense that shootings are now just a deplorably consistent fact of American life.

Democrats moved quickly to clear the way for votes on legislation to strengthen background checks for gun purchasers.

Within hours of the shooting in Uvalde, Senator Chuck Schumer, Democrat of New York and the majority leader, moved to clear the way to force votes in coming days on legislation that would strengthen background checks for gun purchasers, pushing to revive measures with broad appeal that Republicans have blocked in the past.

Lawful to you in Marriage are Chaste Women from the Believers and Chaste Women from the People of the Book (Bible, Torah).

This day are (all) things good and pure made lawful unto you.”

The food of the People of the Book is lawful unto you and yours is lawful unto them.”

(Lawful unto you in Marriage) are (not only) Chaste Women who are believers, but Chaste Women among the People of the Book, revealed before your time― when you give them their due dowers, and desire chastity, not lewdness, nor secret intrigues.”

“If anyone rejects faith, fruitless is his work, and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good).

^ ^ ^ ^ ^

“Our Lord! Give us good in this world and good in the Hereafter and save us from the torment of the Fire!” Quran 2:201

Those who believe (in the Qur’an) and those who follow the Jewish (Scriptures) and the Christians and the Sabians, any who believe in Allah and the Last Day and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. Quran 2:62
