 Dr. Shaikh Sentenced to Death   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Younis Shaikh, a teacher at a medical college in Islamabad and founder and president of Enlightenment, the Pakistani-based International Humanist and Ethical Union member organization, was sentenced to death for blasphemy by a court in Pakistan on August 18.
Shaikh was arrested on October 4, 2000, by Islamabad police for allegedly saying that the Prophet Mohammed did not become Muslim until the age of 40 (which was when he received his first revelation) and that his parents were non-Muslims (as they died before Islam was proposed by the Prophet).
None of the complainants to the police were eyewitnesses to the alleged offence: the complaint was lodged by leaders of the Majlis Tahaffuz Khatm-i-Nabuwat (Committee for the Protection of the Finality of the Prophethood), a conservative organization that is known to have harassed and attacked non-orthodox Muslims in the past.

Hileman says "The absurdity of condemning Dr. Shaikh to death based on hearsay that he inadvertently "blasphemed" is obvious to the world." This latest development in the trial of Shaikh is "repulsive to the reasoned citizens of the world who shudder at this brutality."
Separately, Edd Doerr, president of the AHA, notes that Shaikh is not the only individual being persecuted by Pakistan's outrageous blasphemy law.
Shaikh has been accused of saying that the Prophet had not become a Muslim until age 40 and that before then, he had not followed Muslim practice of circumcision.

Just as Khalid Shaikh Mohammed was reestablishing himself in Afghanistan, Bin Laden and his colleagues were also transplanting their operations to the same country.

Shaikh Asad Bayyoud Tamimi, Leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement and former Imam of Masjid al-Aqsa, died in Amman, Jordan on the night of March 21.
Shaikh Tamimi went on to establish the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement in 1978 (not to be confused with the Islamic Jihad of Palestine of which Dr Fathi Shiqaqi was a leader who was martyred by zionist Mossad agents in Malta in October 1995).
Shaikh Tamimi will be remembered as a charismatic and courageous leader of the Palestinian struggle who made his contribution by bringing Islam to the forefront of the movement at a time when nationalism and secularism reigned supreme in much of the Middle East.

 INTRODUCTION
To have a full understanding of Shaikh Ahmadu Bamba and Mouridism it is necessary to refer to the Qoran which says: "Wa ma arsalana min rasulin illa bi lisani nammihi", (we have sent every messenger with revelation in the language of his people- Chapter 14-verse 4).
From that point of view, it becomes obvious that the oppressors were only allowing Shaikh Ahmadu Bamba to achieve the prophecy as he himself mention it: "Wa adhalal ilahu fi qulubi man, tassabahu fi naqlihi daka zaman", (God only inspired their plans of internment in the heart of those who instigated it that same year).

 Book Review: Islam: Sex and Violence by Anwar Shaikh   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Crucial to Shaikh's approach is his perception of the role of Muhammad in originating Islam, since it is undoubtedly true that in order to be a Muslim it is not sufficient to simply believe in God.
Apologists for Islam will doubtless claim that Shaikh's view of the religion is distorted by his harrowing personal experiences, that a balanced view would show Islam's other face, its art, architecture and mysticism, its intellectual achievements in the Islamic middle ages, and so on.
Despite its eccentricities and polemical approach, Shaikh's book deserves to stand with his other works on bookshop and library shelves everywhere, alongside the numerous mealy-mouthed apologies for Islam that political correctness dictates shall be the only fare served to the public.
