Mahomet Allum, Australia’s leading herbalist-benefactor

Mahomet Allum dispensed herbal mixtures and advice without payment but accepted donations and gifted charities handsomely. He claimed the healing gift was handed down in his Afghan family for 400 years. The South Australian Worker claimed that daily attendance at his practise averaged 600 people. Published testimonials confirm his popularity, effective healing and charity.   Perth’s Sunday Times noted: “‘Humanity’s Benefactor’ and ‘Good Samaritan’ are but two endearing terms in which he is referred to by thousands of Australians.” With the reputation of having accomplished many outstanding cures it expected to locate Allum in elaborate consulting rooms. Instead it...

Jordan Peterson – Western conservative ‘New Age’ light

Canadian psychologist, Jordan Peterson, has become a celebrity guide for Westerners discarding Christian beliefs and positing a world without a Supreme Being. Peterson derives his concepts from Western science; also Asian religions, viewing the world as chaos and pain. He’s akin to Buddha reforming Hinduism in his reassessment of Christian teachings. He’s strongly influenced by modern anthropology that religions are products created by the communities that worship them. On God’s existence, Peterson is agnostic. He’s influenced by Carl Jung’s view that religious experience is a manifestation of human collective unconsciousness. Consequently, he views religions as providing societal stability with...

God Almighty draws our attention: “See you not that it is God Whose praises all beings in the heavens and on earth do celebrate, and the birds with wings outspread. Each knows its own prayer and praise.” (Qur’an 24:41). Modern science posits that the Nightingale’s sonorous song and the excited dawn quorus such as the bower-bird’s melodies or whip-bird’s ‘crack’ are mainly intended to attract...

China civilised? Destroying good will in the Muslim world

Recently, this writer was in Dubai about to board a Chinese flight to Brisbane via Urumqi, the Xinjiang capital. Surprisingly, permission was refused as my ticket required three-hour’s stopover while the new regulation only allowed two. I purchased a costly emergency ticket to get home.

China for many years but especially since 2017 has severely punished Muslims for normal Islamic practices such as praying, fasting, growing a beard, wearing hijab, Islamic marriages and funerals, especially in Xinjiang (East Turkestan) that is now an oppressive police state. Xi Jinping, President of China, is...

Australia cedes its foreign policy in support of a rogue state

The US and Israel have ‘outed’ in recent weeks confirming their true nature – states that bully nations and disrespect international law and the UN. With Israel’s massacre of 60 Palestinians on the Gaza border, the Palestinian Authority urged the International Criminal Court to investigate Israel’s “grave crimes,” as well as its illegal settlements. Shockingly, Australia jettisoned its cherished value of ‘a fair go’ for the disadvantaged.  It was the only country with the US rejecting a UN Human Rights Council resolution to investigate. Aggravating world conflict, President Donald Trump shattered peace hopes by withdrawing from the Iran nuclear...
