The Muslim World League - World Assembly of Muslim Youth & The International Committee for the Support of the Final Prophet

Zero degrees of separation : Soliman Albuthi - Al Haramain- the ICSFP- MWL- WAMY & Al Qaeda
August 17, 2004

MIM: The Muslim World League and the World Assembly of Muslim Youth are divisions of the Saudi Wahabist enterprise linked to Al Haramain and Al Qaeda. In 2003 WAMY, a wing of the Muslim World League sponsored a conference of newly formed group named The International Committee for the Support of the Final Prophet in Canada . More proof that Al Haramain,which has been linked to terror funding and is under investigation for ties to terrorism,is expanding, and of the mendacity of Saudi claims that they are cooperating with the United States in closing down terrorism funding .

The ISDFP web domain owner Soliman Albuthi, has been linked to Al Qaeda funding and those purchase of two mosques in Springfield Missouri and Oregon which are connected to the Al Haramain foundation . The Islamic Center of Springfield Missouri was closed by the Treasury department n 2004 for ties to terror funding. Albuthi's was named as the financer of the mosque who appears to have 'dissappeared' to Saudi Arabia.

"We detected a pattern here . . . for terrorist cells and those who aid and harbor them to operate behind the shield of legitimate humanitarian . . . organizations…. They were preaching good, and sometimes doing good, while plotting evil."[3]"

John Slyvester commander of NATO led forces in Bosnia re: Al Haramain


The World Association for Muslim Youth presents themselves as a humanitarian organisation and UN NGO.


The World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) is
an independent international organisation and an
Islamic forum that supports the work of Muslim
organisations and needy communities the world over.
WAMY's headquarters are based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

WAMY has regional as well various branches in and
outside Saudi Arabia.Established in 1972, it has
presence in 55 countriesand an associate membership
of over 500 youth organisations around the world.

WAMY is a member of the United Nations NGOs
(Non-Governmental Organisations),and recognised for its
vast scope of humanitarian and relief work that encompasses
about 60% of the Muslim World.

MIM: A Hospital in Afghanistan as strategic front. The description of the hospital services claims that the "total population benefitting from this project is over 300,000 most of them vulnerable". Which begs the question as to what services WAMY admits to providing to those among the 300,000 who may be the opposite of vulnerable.

Since 1989 WAMY has been running a hospital, in the centre of Chamkani district of Paktia province. The hospital is fully equipped with all the necessary medical supplies to cover all the health needs in the area. Now the hospital is providing health services round-the-clock. The total population benefiting from this project is over 300,000 most of whom are vulnerable. http://www.wamy.co.uk/bd_aid_hospitals.htm


MIM According to Dore Gold, author of "Hatreds Kingdom", a book documenting Saudi terror funding, the Al Haramain Foundation is the hub of the Saudi terror funding network which includes the Muslim World League and the World Assembly of Muslim Youth.

Financial Support for the New Global Terrorism

As already demonstrated, Saudi Arabia erected a number of large global charities in the 1960s and 1970s whose original purpose may have been to spread Wahhabi Islam, but which became penetrated by prominent individuals from al-Qaeda's global jihadi network. The three most prominent of these charities were the International Islamic Relief Organization (an offshoot of the Muslim World League), the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), and the Charitable Foundations of al-Haramain. All three are suspected by various global intelligence organizations of terrorist funding.

It would be incorrect to view these charities as purely non-governmental organizations. At the apex of each organization's board is a top Saudi official. The Saudi Grand Mufti, who is also a Saudi cabinet member, chairs the Constituent Council of the Muslim World League. The Saudi Minister of Islamic Affairs chairs the secretariat of WAMY and the administrative council of al-Haramain. All three organizations have received large charitable contributions from the Saudi royal family that have been detailed in Saudi periodicals.

The earliest documented links between one of these charities and terrorists was found in Bosnia. It is a handwritten account on IIRO stationery from the late 1980s indicating the use of this charity's offices for the support of militant actions. But the strongest documented cases that demonstrate the ties between Saudi Arabia's global charities and international terrorism are related to Hamas. These ties were alleged already in the mid-1990s when a Hamas funding group received instructions to write letters of thanks to executives of IIRO and WAMY for funds it had received. In 1994, President Clinton made a brief stopover in Saudi Arabia during which he complained about Saudi funding of Hamas. These charges about Saudi Arabia bankrolling Hamas have become even more vociferous in recent years


MIM: Article on Al Haramain details the suit filed by the Families United to Bankrupt Terrorism (FUBT), a group comprised by people who lost family members in the 9/11 attacks.

Terrorist Charity
By Michael Tremoglie
FrontPageMagazine.com | September 16, 2003

Why is the American office of a Saudi Arabian charitable foundation, linked to Al-Qaeda, still in operation? Ironically, the Saudi government, in May 2003, closed seven of this charity's offices in other countries – at the request of the federal government. Yet, the US offices were not closed.

The Al-Haramain Islamic Foundation has an office in Ashland, Oregon. According to a lawsuit, the Ashland, Oregon office was linked to al Qaeda, and the Al-Haramain branch in Kenya that was banned following the 1998 Embassy Bombings.[1]

Families United to Bankrupt Terrorism (FUBT) made this allegation in their lawsuit filed on August 15, 2002, in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. FUBT is a group representing some families of the 9/11 terrorist attack victims. According to the lawsuit FUBT "seeks to hold those responsible for a more …insidious form of terrorism… which attempts to hide behind the facade of legitimacy. These entities, cloaked in a thin veil of legitimacy, were and are the true enablers of terrorism. The financial resources and support network of these … charities, banks, and individual financiers …allowed the attacks of September 11, 2001 to occur. …Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda network cannot plan, train and act on a massive scale without significant financial power, coordination and backing." [2] Essentially FUBT is accessing the opportunity made available by President Bush, John Ashcroft and Congress and the Patriot Act to file civil actions against terrorists and impede their financial operations.

Al-Haramain's activities have been known for some time now. In March 2002, Bosnian intelligence reported that Al-Haramain was related to terrorist operations-especially Al-Qaeda and Chechnyan rebels. A raid of the Sarajevo office of Al-Haramain revealed that $1.59 million was not unaccounted for by the group. Bosnian intelligence reported that: "We believe that the clear lack of any concrete humanitarian projects indicates that the existence of this organization was a fictitious cover for probable links with terrorism." That same month President Bush included Al-Haramain in an executive order freezing the assets of organizations financing terrorism.

The FUBT lawsuit notes that after raids of Al-Haramain offices in Bosnia in June 2, 2002, the Commander of the NATO-led forces in Bosnia, Lieutenant General John Sylvester stated:

"We detected a pattern here . . . for terrorist cells and those who aid and harbor organizations…. They were preaching good, and sometimes doing good, while plotting evil."[3]

In September 2002, Indonesian Al-Qaeda informant Omar al-Faruq told the CIA that Al-Haramain was used to remit funds to him from bin Laden. Al-Haramain's website used to have a direct link to qoqaz.net, which is a website that is part of the al Qaeda propaganda network. The website is owned by Azzam Publications, bin Laden's propaganda vehicle, and operated from Houston Texas.

Al-Haramain is also involved with the Al Baraka banking empire, which was also named in the 9/11 lawsuit. AL-Baraka finances the activities of bin Laden and Al-Qaeda. In his Senate testimony in July 2003, terrorism expert Steve Emerson said that although initially Saudi Arabia denied allegations that Al-Haramain were involved in terrorist activities, in June (2003) they stated that al-Haramain was not acting according to its charter and announced that all foreign offices were to be closed. Emerson did remark that the Ashland office was still in operation.

Al-Haramain has another location in the United States. According to the 9/11 complaint, Al-Haramain owns a building in Springfield, Missouri that is home of the Islamic Center of Springfield, which is a mosque.

A call to the Ashland office revealed that there is no staff there. There was only an answering service. The address listed for the Ashland, Oregon Al-Haramain office, is 1257 Siskiykou Boulevard. This is a UPS mail office. The same address is used for the Quran Foundation. The president of this organization is a local Arab-American arborist named Pete Seda. The Quran Foundation is a nonprofit Islamic educational organization. Seda is affiliated with Al-Haramain. He operates an Al-Haramain affiliated program called Arabian Nights, which familiarizes people with Arab culture and the Islamic faith.

Apparently, Seda is considered a benefactor in Ashland. He bought a camel to show kids who attend his Arabian Nights program. A local Ashland, Oregon newspaper, the Daily Tidings, despite all the controversy involving Al-Haramain, described Al-Haramain simply has an Oregon nonprofit organization.

One wonders when the federal government and the Ashland newspapers will start investigating the allegations and the operations of Al-Haramain's local office.

Missouri Mosque's Assets Frozen :

Working with the Saudis, the United States has previously moved to freeze the assets of six foreign branches of Al-Haramain. Those branches are in Indonesia, Kenya, Tanzania, Pakistan, Somalia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. The United States has not taken action against the charity's main office in Saudi Arabia.

A federal affidavit for a search warrant of the Oregon property alleged that a Saudi citizen, Soliman Albuthe, flew to Oregon in March 2000 and obtained about $130,000 in traveler's checks. He soon left the United States with the checks, which he did not report to authorities as required by federal law. The affidavit also alleges that the tax-exempt U.S. branch filed false tax returns for 2000.

Authorities think some charitable contributions were siphoned from Al-Haramain worldwide to support al-Qaida's terrorist activities. Al-Haramain has said it was only involved in charity work for the poor.

According to tax records examined in September by The Washington Times, the Oregon group claimed to have $663,000 in assets in 2001 with prayer houses in Springfield and Ashland.

Attorney Matasar said the Springfield mosque was worth about $400,000. Court records indicate the foundation purchased the building in June 2000 shortly after Albuthe brought $275,000 from Saudi Arabia to deposit in an Oregon bank.



MIM: Zero degrees of seperation : The Committee for the Support of the Final Prophet conference sponsored by WAMY.

Siraj Wahaj was one of the 'usual suspects' among the featured speakers .

Siraj Wahaj: Imam of Al Tarqwa mosque which hosted Sheik Abdel Rahman. Wahaj is an unindicted co conspirator in the 1993 WTC bombings and testified as a character witness in the case "The US vs. Bin Laden". Wahaj also has a connection to South Florida, and sits on the board of trustees of the Universal Heritage Foundation, an Islamic propagation project linked to the Islamic Circle of North America and The Muslim American Society.

The International Committee for the Defense and Support of the Final Prophet

Mission Statement

by --


In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Our aim is not merely to defend the Prophet (peace be upon him) but, more importantly, to present to humanity his message, his character, and evidences for the truthfulness of his Prophethood

He was the final Prophet of God, and the dawn of his prophethood was the genesis of a new world which was destined to last until the end of time when all Creation is to return to its Lord and Master.

His influence is visible in every aspect of our lives, whether we realize it or not. It can be seen in the beliefs and patterns of thought of people all over the world. It is evident in every culture and civilization. It influences concepts of morality and modes of living. It has its effect on knowledge and learning. In short, it encompasses all spheres of human endeavor.

It is ironic, however, that the vast majority of people today have little knowledge of the last Prophet of God. They know nothing of his life, his mission and the historical impact that he had on the world we live in.

It is for this reason that the idea was born to establish a website dedicated to the life of the Prophet (peace be upon him), highlighting many aspects of his biography, for the benefit of the general public.

The authentic biography of the noble Prophet is distinctly clear, realistic and complete. In fact, it is an open book to anyone who wishes to become acquainted with it. It is so explicitly chronicled and every minute detail of his life is so well documented that after reading it, one seems to feel that he had personally met and lived with the Prophet himself. Likewise, it is so thoroughly dynamic that almost every aspect of human life possible had been covered. Most of all, it is so well recounted that people from all walks of life can easily relate to it and identify with it.

Though endless words have been spoken to describe his noble life and personality, this presentation is aimed at keeping the story as authentic and genuine as possible. Moreover, it is intended as an introduction of sorts for those who may be approaching the subject for the first time.

We believe no one can help being moved and inspired by the nobility of his character. Even his greatest enemies and worst critics have had to acknowledge that they could find no fault whatsoever with his behavior or the integrity of his character.

We invite you to read further and learn more about this most kind, merciful, and inspiring individual.


MIM:The ICSFP has contact addresses in Washington and Riyadh . The group is closely linked to the both Muslim World League, the World Assembly of Muslim Youth in Canada, and by extension Al Haramain.

Note that the group maintains two website: ICSFP.com and WhyMuhammed.com which are both registered to the same group with an address in Riyadh.

MIM: The ICFSP has their keffiyah's in a twist about a book about Mohammed and wants it banned from stores.

Stop Hatred & Misinformation
Author: IECRC

Craig Winn has written a book titled "The Prophet of Doom" that attacks the Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him. The Islamic Educational and Cultural Research Center has placed an online petition calling on bookstores to stop selling the book. Below is the text of the petition which may be signed online here. Please invite those you know to sign the petition.

To: All Bookstores

We the undersigned declare that we are utterly shocked and dismayed at the blasphemous publication of Mr. Craig Winn's book "Prophet of Doom" (Publisher: CricketSong Books - April 25, 2004) that presents false and malicious information regarding our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), the Prophet who is revered by 20 percent of the world's population, and who Muslims believe to be the Prophet sent as a Mercy to all the worlds.

Mr. Winn, a businessman, who according to Amazon.com's own editorial review knew nothing about Islam prior to 9/11, reveals his lack of knowledge and poor scholarship in his fictitious writing, which is outside the pale of America's freedom of expression as it contributes towards the provocation of hate and the fraying of the fabric of its multi-cultural society by offending the sensibilities of a large segment of its population, namely:

  1. Muslims who are very well aware of and dearly love our Prophet (Peace Be
    Upon Him), and
  2. Those of other faiths who have studied the life of the Prophet Muhammad
    (Peace Be Upon Him) and have the following to say:

"His readiness to undergo persecutions for his beliefs, the high moral
character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as leader, and
the greatness of his ultimate achievement - all argue his fundamental
integrity. To suppose Muhammad an impostor raises more problems than it
solves. Moreover, none of the great figures of history is so poorly
appreciated in the West as Muhammad."
-- W. Montgomery Watt, MOHAMMAD AT MECCA, Oxford, 1953, p. 52.

"I wanted to know the best of one who holds today's undisputed sway over the
hearts of millions of mankind....I became more than convinced that it was
not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of
life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet,
the scrupulous regard for his pledges, his intense devotion to this friends
and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God
and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before
them and surmounted every obstacle. When I closed the 2nd volume (of the
Prophet's biography), I was sorry there was not more for me to read of the
great life."
-- Gandhi, (Young India)

"It is not the propagation but the permanency of his religion that deserves
our wonder, the same pure and perfect impression which he engraved at Mecca
and Medina is preserved, after the revolutions of twelve centuries by the
Indian, the African and the Turkish proselytes of the Koran. . . The
Mahometans have uniformly withstood the temptation of reducing the object of
their faith an devotion to a level with the senses and imagination of man.
'I believe in One God and Mahomet the Apostle of God' is the simple and
invariable profession of Islam. The intellectual image of the Deity has
never been degraded by any visible idol; the honours of the prophet have
never transgressed the measure of human virtue, and his living precepts have
restrained the gratitude of his disciples within the bounds of reason and

1870, p. 54.

"It is impossible for anyone who studies the life and character of the great
Prophet of Arabia, who knows how he taught and how he lived, to feel
anything but reverence for that mighty Prophet, one of the great messengers
of the Supreme. And although in what I put to you I shall say many things
which may be familiar to many, yet I myself feel whenever I re-read them, a
new way of admiration, a new sense of reverence for that mighty Arabian
-- Annie Besant, THE LIFE AND TEACHINGS OF MUHAMMAD, Madras ,1932, p. 4.

"My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world's most influential
persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he
was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the
religious and secular level."
HISTORY, New York: Hart Publishing Company, Inc., 1978, p. 33.

We call for the removal of all copies of this book from all bookstores - regular or online and for the cessation of its publication immediately.

Thank You.
