American Muslim Medical Relief Team Establishing Maternity Clinic
American Muslim Medical Relief Team (AMMRT) members Dr. Bashir Abdul Wadud, Dr. Jemille Wasi, and Bilqis Begum Ata Abdallah R.N., will be opening a new prenatal and maternity clinic in the rural upstate New York village of Holy Islamberg, in response to the emergence of a recent and unpublicized medical emergency.
C-Sections: Be Warned.
Over the last couple of months there have been a rash of medical occurrences involving Muslim obstetrical patients. Many of these ladies have gone to the hospitals to deliver their children and, when faced with the slightest sign of complications, medical staffs have resorted to unnecessary surgery. This body-damaging procedure, the Cesarean Section (C-section), has become routine in most hospitals. Hospitals have moved away from the natural process of childbirth.
According to the Office of the U.S. Surgeon General, roughly 29 per cent of live births today are by C-section. This figure is escalating due to many factors, among them, inability or failure of the expectant mother to fully prepare physically and psychologically for labor and delivery. There is a subsequent tendency to inhibit the childbirth process due to extreme tension and fear. The 2005 Surgeon General’s report has confirmed that C-sections are usually performed in the doctor’s haste under stressful delivery conditions. There is an obvious lack of knowledge on how to stabilize the patient (See “Success to Life-Threatening Delivery,” this page).
Of concern also is the growing number of abortions in the United States due to the high cost of health care.
C-sections are often conducted in tense environment where practitioner and patient are simultaneously experiencing panic. This charged atmosphere can in many cases, lead to long-term physical damage including scar tissue, thin uterine walls, and damage to the bladder and intestines. The procedure also lessens the chance of future, healthy natural deliveries and decreases fertility.
Decreased fertility & population control.
Such population control policies have been put into place with the express intent of decreasing the amount of births, especially amongst people of color.
As regards open anti-fertility methods like birth control pills and injections, Planned Parenthood –which began as the American Birth Control League– has become an effective machine for population control. Planned Parenthood legitimizes and propagates promiscuity, and there appears to be financial gain involved. Pharmaceutical companies have received billions of dollars in government subsidies to provide cut-rate birth control pills to Planned Parenthood, for the sale by the organization to all those who enter their doors.
All of these unethical practices are detrimental to women, and our society as a whole. There is an urgent need to return to viable remedies.
Before the advent of modern medicine people were born into the world and survived in good health.
Regulation or research?
There has been a revival in natural approaches to childbirth, midwifery, and treatment of diseases, but the desire of the majority is being suppressed under the guise of regulation.
A major propagator of healthcare misconceptions is the World Health Organization (WHO). WHO is a global organization, established as part of the United Nations from the outset of the UN, and claims to be responsible for “setting norms and standards” in the health industry. This UN body is also engaged in “articulating evidence-based policy options,” and “shaping research agenda.” It would seem, from perusing their objectives, as if there is no other treatment option which, even when based on evidence of formal research, has proven acceptable. El Sheikh, Dr. Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani, established a ward in the Taif psychiatric hospital, proving the results of El Gilani Methodology (EGM) under controlled circumstances decades ago, upon the request of WHO-sponsored psychiatrists for the purposes of establishing a spiritual treatment method. But the scientific results led to unscientific responses. One of the psychiatrists involved rejected the research outright upon his stated premise, “I don’t want to believe in God.”
The Islamic Post has been instrumental in displaying the results of EGM over the years. Spiritual and natural remedies have been successfully used by EGM practitioners for treatment of cancer, kidney disease, jaundice, AIDS, and other ailments.
After leaving aside spiritual modalities, WHO’s agenda for traditional medicine now focuses on herb regulation and creating fear regarding remedies unknown to modern medicine.
While history bears testimony that few people have suffered death or accumulated side effects from the use of natural therapies, the same cannot be said of surgery and pharmaceuticals. To completely negate the validity of centuries-tested therapies for decades-old approaches which hinge upon the profit-based sale of unaffordable pharmaceutical products and the edge of the knife to remove an effected organ in a instead of healing it, can be likened to a return to the Dark Ages.
The current condition of the approach to disease is dismal at best in regards to true patient care. Moreover, if the present healthcare movement continues to ignore the full aspect of the nature of disease, which includes the spiritual aspect this is a trend that will continue to spiral out of control. Let us pray that it will not come to that.
El Gilani Methodology (EGM) (See the Dr. Jemille column below) is a non-invasive treatment modality in which people have been cured by the word of God Almighty. One recent instance involves a young girl complaining of frequency of urination every 2 hours. A urologist in Lahore examined her and performed many tests to figure out a cause. It was determined that her bladder was too small and couldn’t hold her urine. Special prayers of the Holy Last Messenger, Muhammad. peace be upon him, and a command from the Holy Quran –“Oh Earth, take back your water, hold it back.”– were written and placed about her neck, along with the last lines of Sura Mulk. A short time later the disease was cured.
Western scientists have deemed many ailments “incurable,” and have no real knowledge of them. This is especially the case with regards to curing aids.
In an attempt to assist the reversal of the negative trend of human suffering, the American Muslim Medical Relief Team (AMMRT) has worked fervently in many areas. AMMRT members have placed their lives in jeopardy and selflessly given their monies, time, and medical expertise in the emergency rescue and medical relief efforts of catastrophic disaster sites such as the Ground Zero site in the aftermath of September 11, Hurricane Katrina, and the devastating earthquake in Pakistan in 2005.
Today AMMRT is responding to the need of mothers who are put at risk, in an effort to end unwarranted maternal surgery, and to provide a positive childbirth experience.
Towards these ends, three team members will establish a fully equipped and fully staffed maternity clinic along with staff members Nabila begum Muhammad Siddiq, R.N.; Habibah Abdallah, R.N.; and Hakeemahs Khadijah Ansar, Naima Azza, and Razia Abdul Mumin.
The medical facility will specialize in midwifery, childhood illnesses, prenatal care, and general well being. Through this new facility, medical assistance and counseling will be given to all that are in need.
The maternity care and health crisis is urgent, and long overdue. The construction of the clinic is to begin immediately. Over the years the AMMRT has, without prejudice, has answered your calls and pleas for assistance and help and will continue to do so.

Scientists and government agencies are baffled by the constant barrage of floods, tornadoes, and wildfires occurring simultaneously in several different locations.
Many of these storms have eluded all scientific detections and are only discovered when it is far too late to implement evacuation plans. There was a time when such devices were of value and offered enough warning to the people whose lives would be affected; however, predictions of mega-storms like Louisiana’s hurricane Katrina have fallen short in estimating the danger and destruction caused.
Floods in Iowa have swallowed entire towns, breaking or weakening the levees that were constructed to protect the masses. Many rely on the weather agencies to give concrete information substantiated by scientific facts as to the severity of a storm; however, Ron Fournier, a spokesman with the Army Corps of Engineers in Iowa , said,“There is no way to predict whether these levees will break. That’s a crystal ball that nobody has.”
In other states like Kansas, Oklahoma and Mississippi, tornadoes have leveled residential communities and small towns. Horrific tornadoes-sometimes two or three touching down in the same area at the same time- have exceeded the estimations of the agencies that tract them. Preliminary statistics from the National Weather Service show that 172 tornadoes have been reported in Kansas this year — the most in the nation.
Wildfires have charred and destroyed thousands of acres in California with its newest destruction in Hollywood. There has been speculation as to the origins of these wildfires but no evidence to corroborate such ideas. At best the reason given is that the heat combined with the lack of rain makes for an easy target for ‘wildfires’ to occur. Scientists, who would have the masses believe that these mega-storms are the results of mixes in climate from one region of the country to another, know all too well the reasons for such horrific occurrences.
When the people of New Orleans, Louisiana returned to their homes, they were more concerned about reviving Mardi Gras then repairing the damage done to some of the poorest areas in the city. State funds were allocated for the sole purpose of rebuilding New Orleans-a haven for all that is impure and against The Almighty Creator’s Law.
Homosexuals have been granted the right to ‘marry’ in California thus they are flocking to the state in droves seeking to make lawful what the Almighty Creator has deemed unlawful. This in the face of the fact that he sent the Great Flood of Noah (peace be upon him) to destroy them for the same actions.
One should pay careful attention to arrive at the conclusion that history is repeating itself. The crimes against the Almighty Creator are more prevalent now than in the past; bringing a multitude of calamities. Instead of one great flood, we suffer several of them. Instead of one tornado or forest fire, many storms befall our nation leaving us with nothing but memories.
How selective are our memories that we forget or refuse to acknowledge the one thing that makes complete sense? The Almighty Creator’s Laws are being broken therefore He sends the Wrath. Even worse is the wrath upon those who chose to ignore the signs as a punishment, not a natural disaster.
