    80% of those who use illicit drugs use only cannabis. 65% of the money made by drug cartels are from cannabis. If you want to stop the drug trade violence, you have to start by legalizing cannabis. This is not new information.

    You can get some corrupt police officers! They are sometimes the ones that protect the criminal as in the Stephen Lawrence case. It's wrong! There have also been cases of the police giving weapons to criminal gangs. If this is still going on then it has to stop now! Families are dying even though they are supposed to be living! All British governments know to do, is jump into countries where they have a financial claim and start bombing it. Claiming they are solving the foreigners country! Well government wake up and stop bombing foreign lands and clean up your own backyard. Well they don't seem to care about the people in Yemen... Our eyes are open wide and watching how you roll Tory government. Why has crime gone up under them? 🤔 The government should get off their backsides and stand up and answer them! Stop cutting money in our communities, and then tell people to blame the council's or Mayor Sadiq Khan! We are not blinded by your lies anymore.....Well some are, but the majority of us NO! 👿

    An ex-cop who knows who the dealers are, but wont talk to them apart from selling them food but does not report them to the Police - I guess its a good example of how corrupt the force is - such sh***y journalism that obviously tolerates this ex-cop`s supporting of the drug dealers, oh wait am i allowed to say that or should I keep quiet so that I don't offend anybody?

    When you take care of people that comes mainly from ongoing wars. Help them with psychological trauma. If you stick them in a area with few opportunities, high crime rate and a lot of trouble past memories. This is what happens! It does not matter where the people come from it’s the situation they are put in with the memories they have.

    I Seek Refuge in Allah from the accursed shaytaan.
    In the name of Allah The Most Beneficient, The Most Merciful. Peace and Blessings upon Muhammad (Salul laho alay he wasullum)
    May Allah (S.W.T) saves us from the Whispers and Deceptions of Shaytaan and give us all the abilty to Earn & Eat from Halal and abstain from Haraam. May Allah protect us from Sihr and Ayn (Evil Eye, BlackMagic and all Types of illness. May Allah (S.w.t) Safeguard us from Shirk,Bidah,Buqtaan and Haraam and all types of Major sins from Hypocrisy, Fornication, backbiting, hate, Touching Interest, malice, jelousy and all minor sins. May Allah (s.w.t) Guide and Unite The Ummah under Tawheed and give all us Muslims Male and Female to have full faith and conviction in the Kalimah Tawheed and to Have Taqwa. May Allah (s.w.t) give us the abilty to learn Deen starting from the Basic Knowledge from Taharaa (Cleansiness as its Half of our Imaan to stay Pure and clean at all times), Ability, Good Character, Health, Sincerity and Devotion in all good actions we do and in praying our 5 times Daily Salah (Prayers) on time and Seek help from the creator Allah and not his creation.Its not optional its an Obligation to Allah. Shaytaan got kicked out of Jannah for 1 Sujood, How many many sujoods are we neglecting? May Allah (s.w.t) May Allah give us the ability to learn the deen and propagate the deen and give Dawah (Convey the Truthful Message of Islam) towards the Non-Muslims and give Naseeha and Al- Islah (Advice,Reform,Remind) the Muslims to best of our abilities because, it is our duty whether we like it or not. May we utalise our health halal wealth and time for Allah alone. It is not optional it is a obligation!
    = Taharaa (Cleansiness at all times) half of Imaan (Faith) =
    Abu Malik Al-Ash`ari (RA) reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:
    “Purity is half of iman (faith). “
    Abu Hurairah (RA) reported that the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said:
    “Five practices are of the fitrah (natural disposition): circumcision, shaving the pubic region, clipping the nails and cutting the moustaches short.”
    (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
    Fardh acts of Ghusl
    There are three Fard (obligatory) acts.
    1) Niyyah (Intention) recite Bismillah and make intention "Oh Allah purify me"
    2) Wash hands and Gargle water in mouth 1 time is Fardh 3 times is sunnah.
    3) Sniffing water upto your soft bone and blowing it out. 1 times Fardh and 3 times is Sunnah.
    3) To wash the entire body including hard to reach places in a rigorous manner not to leave a Hair dry.
    =Importance of Earning Halal and Eating Halal=
    On the authority of Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him), who said: The Messenger of Allah said: “Allah the Almighty is good and accepts only that which is good. Allah has commanded the Faithful to do that which He commanded the Messengers, and the Almighty has said: “O ye Messengers! Eat of the good things, and do right..” (Quran 23:51). And Allah the Almighty has said: “O ye who believe! Eat of the good things wherewith We have provided you..” (2:172). Then he mentioned [the case of] a man who, having journeyed far, is disheveled and dusty and who spreads out his hands to the sky [saying]: O Lord! O Lord!-while his food is unlawful, his drink is unlawful, his clothing unlawful, and he is nourished unlawfully, so how can he be answered!” (Muslim).
    =Virtue of Bismillah & Alhumdolillah protection from Shaytaan at all times=
    Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
    I heard Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying, "If a person mentions the name of Allah upon entering his house or eating, Satan says, addressing his followers: 'You will find no where to spend the night and no dinner.' But if he enters without indicating the Name of Allah, Satan says (to his followers); 'You have found (a place) to spend the night in, and if he does not mention the Name of Allah at the time of eating, Satan says: 'You have found (a place) to spend the night in as well as food.' "
    [Muslim] .

    'Umar bin Abu Salamah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
    Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), said to me, "Mention Allah's Name (ie, say Bismillah before starting eating), eat with your right hand, and eat from what is near you."
    [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
    'Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported:
    Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "When any of you desires to eat, he should mention the Name of Allah in the begining (ie, say Bismillah). wa akhirahu (I begin with the Name of Allah at the beginning and at the end). [At-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud] .
    = Virtue of Salah (Prayer) =
    Indeed, the prayer is prescribed on the believers at fixed times.
    Surah 4: Verse 103
    “O you who have believed, seek help through patience and prayer. Indeed, Allah is with the patient.” (2:153)

    Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The first action for which a servant of Allah will be held accountable on the Day of Resurrection will be his prayers. If they are in order, then he will have prospered and succeeded. If they are lacking, then he will have failed and lost. If there is something defective in his obligatory prayers, then the Almighty Lord will say: See if my servant has any voluntary prayers that can complete what is insufficient in his obligatory prayers. The rest of his actions will be judged in the same way.”
    (Sunan al-Tirmidhī 413)
    = Dawah =
    "You are the Best Nation produced for the Guidance of Mankind. You Enjoin towards Good and forbid what is Bad and you have Firm faith in Allah." (Al Quran - Surah 3 - Ali 'Imran Verse 110).
    I heard the Messenger of Allah (saw) say, “Whoso- ever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart - and that is the weakest of faith.”
    =What Quran says about Intoxicants =
    O you who believe!; Indeed, Intoxicants
    (eg Alcohol,Drugs) And Games of Chance
    (Gambling- Lottery,William Hill and Paddy Power,Poker,Casinos), [sacrificing on] stone alters
    (eg shirk: idols worshipping) [to other than Allah ], and divining arrows (eg fortune telling,predicting future,Hand Reading) are the filth of shaytaans handiwork,avoid such (abomination) that you maybe successful.
    Shaytaans plan is to excite enmity and hatred through Intoxicants and gambling and to stop you from the remembrance of Allah and from prayer (Salah). will you not then give up?
    [Surah 5 verse 90-91]
    Recite, [O Muhammad], what has been revealed to you of the Book and establish prayer. Indeed, prayer prohibits immorality and wrongdoing, and the remembrance of Allah is greater. And Allah knows that which you do. (29:45)
    Shaqiq bin 'Abdullah reported: The Companions of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) did not consider the abandonment of any action as disbelief except neglecting Salat.
    [At- Tirmidhi].
    =Alcohol & Music =
    The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Allah has cursed Khamr (intoxicants - alcohol, wine drugs.), the one who drinks it, the one who pours it for others, the one who sells it, the one who buys it, the one who makes it, the one who it is made for, the one who carries it, the one who it is carried to and the one who consumes the money from its sale.”
    [Sunan Abu Dawud]
    Hadhrat Abu Maalik Ash'ari (radhiyallahu anhu) says that he heard Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) say: "Most certainly, there will be in my Ummah people who will make lawful fornication, silk, liquor and musical instruments." (Bukhaari)
    "Music makes hypocrisy to grow in the heart like water causes the crops to grow." (Abu Dawud)
    Hadhrat Abu Maalik Ash'ari (radhiyallahu anhu) says that he heard Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) say: "Most certainly, there will be in my Ummah people who will make lawful fornication, silk, liquor and musical instruments." (Bukhaari)
    =Virtues of Knowledge =
    Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
    The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "Allah makes the way to Jannah easy for him who treads the path in search of knowledge." [Muslim].

    Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
    The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "He who calls others to follow the Right Guidance will have a reward equal to the reward of those who follow him, without their reward being diminished in any respect on that account." [Muslim].
    Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
    The Messenger of Allah(ﷺ) said, "He who does not acquire knowledge with the sole intention of seeking the Pleasure of Allah but for worldly gain, will not smell the fragrance of Jannah on the Day of Resurrection."
    [Abu Dawud].
    "Every Soul Will Taste Death. And you will be paid your reward fully only on the Resurrection day. Then whoever is removed far from the Fire and is made to enter the Garden, he indeed attains the object. And the life of this world is nothing but a comfort of illusions."
    [Surah Al Imran Verse 185]
    On the authority of Abu Hamzah Anas bin Malik (may Allah be pleased with them) - the servant of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) - that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said :
    "None of you will believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself."
    (Bukhari & Muslim)
    And remind, for indeed, the reminder benefits the believers.
    (SURAH 51 verse 55)
