Farooque Ahmed Arrested in Washington D.C. Area Terror Plot

Was Farooque Ahmed a Quaker extremist? A radical Methodist? A disgruntled Baptist? Let's look for clues.

A Virginia man has been arrested for allegedly trying to help Al Qaeda plan multiple bombings around the nation's capital, according to U.S. officials.

Farooque Ahmed, 34, of Ashburn, Va., was arrested today by the FBI and charged with providing material support to terrorists and collecting information for a terrorist attack.

“It’s chilling that a man from Ashburn is accused of casing rail stations with the goal of killing as many Metro riders as possible through simultaneous bomb attacks,” said Neil MacBride, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. “Today’s arrest highlights ... our ability to find those seeking to harm U.S. citizens and neutralize them before they can act."

According to an indictment filed in U.S. Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, between April 2010 and Oct. 25, Ahmed repeatedly met with individuals he thought were affiliated with Al Qaeda to discuss "jihad."

On May 15, in a hotel room in Sterling, Va., Ahmed told one individual that he might be ready to travel overseas to conduct jihad, but only after he completed the Hajj pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia in November, according to the indictment. Read more.

Hmmm. He wanted to make sure he performed the Hajj before he started killing the unbelievers (so that he wouldn't die without having observed one of the Five Pillars). It almost sounds like he's a Muslim. No, no, no. That can't be right. How could a follower of the Religion of Peace ever think of hurting unbelievers?

Qur’an 9:29—Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

Qur’an 9:73—O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.

Qur’an 9:111—Surely Allah has bought of the believers their persons and their property for this, that they shall have the garden; they fight in Allah's way, so they slay and are slain; a promise which is binding on Him in the Taurat and the Injeel and the Quran; and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? Rejoice therefore in the pledge which you have made; and that is the mighty achievement.

Qur’an 9:123—O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil).

Qur’an 47:35—Be not weary and fainthearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost: for Allah is with you, and will never put you in loss for your (good) deeds.

Sahih al-Bukhari 6924—Allah’s Messenger said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: La ilaha illallah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), and whoever said La ilaha illahllah, Allah will save his property and his life from me.”

Sahih al-Bukhari 2785—Narrated Abu Hurairah: A man came to Allah’s Messenger and said, “Guide me to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).” He replied, “I do not find such a deed.”

Sahih al-Bukhari 2787—Allah guarantees that He will admit the Mujahid in His Case into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and war booty.”

Sahih al-Bukhari 2795—Narrated Anas bin Malik: The Prophet said, “Nobody who dies and finds good from Allah (in the Hereafter) would wish to come back to this world, even if he were given the whole world and whatever is in it, except the martyr who, on seeing the superiority of martyrdom, would like to come back to the world and get killed again (in Allah’s cause).”

Sahih al-Bukhari 2796—Narrated Anas: The Prophet said, “A single endeavor (of fighting) in Allah’s cause in the afternoon or in the forenoon is better than all the world and whatever is in it.”

Sunan An-Nasa’i 3099—It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet said: “Whoever dies without having fought or having thought of fighting, he dies on one of the branches of hypocrisy.”

Sunan An-Nasa’i 3138—Abu Musa Al-Ash’ari said: “A Bedouin came to the Messenger of Allah and said: ‘A man fights for fame, or he fights for the spoils of war, or he fights to show off. Who is the one who is fighting in the cause of Allah?’ He said: ‘The one who fights so that the word of Allah will be supreme is the one who is fighting in the cause of Allah, the Mighty and Sublime.’”

Sunan Ibn Majah 2763—It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah said: “Whoever meets Allah with no mark on him (as a result of fighting) in His cause, he will meet Him with a deficiency.”

I hope the media doesn't get C.A.I.R. (Council on American-Islamic Relations) to come on to the media. Because all they are going to do is lie by saying, "Islam is a religion of peace. That guy is just misrepresenting true islam." And I don't think it'll be possibe due to the fact that he mentioned taking the pilgrimage to Mecca in November (one of Islam's five pillars).

I hope the media goes to the Koran and the hadiths and speaks the truth on this issue.

Perhaps not every terrorist alive is a Muslim, but a significant number of the most active, violent and deadly terrorists are Muslim. And we DON'T have to qualify that every time we say it with the word "extremist." I think it's insulting to the intelligence of the general public to insist on this. Anyone undertaking such action is indisputably an extremist. It's obvious.

And left wing pundits like Joy(what an inappropriate name) Behar with their insistence on political correctness are just dangerous. They are the "useful idiots" to the diabolical machinations of the jihadis.

I can't wait for the day when ALL Americans acknowledge Islam for what it is, a religion of terror. There is no such thing as peaceful Islam. I hope and pray to God that the liberal media stops this spin on Islam calling it Moderate and Peaceful and "Extremists interpret it violently....etc..etc". The peaceful Muslims are the ones who don't understand and know their Quran. They're the ones who don't care about Islam and therefore are not real Muslims. Islam is the worst enemy humanity has ever faced. I believe the day Islam is defeated is the day of peace for all.

I'm sure CAIR will say that this man was actually a Buddhist monk...those evil monks!

Now look here, those extreme Quakers are no laughing matter. I had a Quaker friend, and more than once, she almost bored me to death with her religious lectures. They have these Sunday meetings, right? And for half of the meeting, these crazy radicals say...n-o-t-h-i-n-g!

Bismillah Al-Rehman Al-Raheem.

May Allah guide us to the Straight Path.

On the blog which I started a few hours ago, a very temporary blog of only forever one post because I neither have the time or the resources to maintain my writing, I have responded to the news in quite the detail. So, for the curious, you are free to visit or not as the case may be.

Interestingly, I did get a chance to skim some comments, not many or most, in the other blog post’s Comment section and saw varying responses from subtly written insults to forthright insults and also commendation. So, this I write for you whom I read: I neither seek nor want your high opinion. Your insults do not diminish me nor does your high opinion or words of praise honor me.

I do not hold myself accountable to you. And I openly dislike the prejudices, bigotry, and vain assumptions that comprise the bulk of this blog. Moreover, I dislike more the fact that people who openly claim to love Jesus (peace be upon him) behave in the way they do on this blog and more so because they present themselves as peace-loving Christians.

Also, who I am is not important but my message is. Thus, the reason I came and for no other reason would I revisit that which is abhorrent. And nothing is more abhorrent to me than anything that seeks to sever my concentration on the Creator, and as such, this Insha-Allah will be my last response on this site to you.

May those who sincerely seek to understand what I write be guided and may those who do not stay with the poverty of their minds and souls. Ameen.

And for the Muslim visitors, you’ll find in the blog post what I’ve written of relevance to you Insha-Allah and that part especially which lies towards the end of my written treatise. May Allah preserve you and keep you steadfast on this deen. Ameen.

Yup, sounds peaceful, all right! I am waiting for the media to declare bombing a "peaceful act".

Not very strange for those who know what quran teaches and what mohammad did in his life but some deceiving muslims may act as being surprised on this news. I think Tony Blair's relative was also attracted by the very adventurous nature of islam. Peace is in Jesus Christ alone and no one can deliver Peace to this world or to us individually. Farooq is carrying paki flag; a country where morals are below human level yet thier desire to see their allah is very passionate. May The Light of Jesus Christ our Saviour shine on their closed minds

One day your eyes will be opened and you will see who it is that chose to follow. You blindly cling to your false faith, and I hope it does not lead to the ultimate loss of your soul.

With every accusation that we are all bigots here and that nothing we say can be of any merit, I fear you put yourself deeper in the hole....

What is very clear though is that your heart and mind are VERY closed. But I suppose that is a virtue in Islam :(

in order for allah to guide u on straight path he has be straight himself. how can he tell u to do some good when he himself is confused and disarrayed. since the very root of islam is false and therefore ur judgement about Jesus followers is uncalled for, unacceptable, unreliable, like the teachings of islam. Before u judge the christians judge ur self and even before that judge each action of ur prophet judiciously and with open mind.
