9-11-01 Terrorist Attack Date and Towers in Jacinta 1972 Bayside Picture
Focus on the 1 and 9 in the 1972 which has the date and the two towers in flames. The first number one is the second tower to be struck.
It has flames extending to the left as the greatest explosion was in this World Trade Tower. The lines to the left also show the approach path of the suicide kamikaze plane. The nine is made up of a zero attached to the one which is the second tower of the World Trade Center. There are flames coming out of the one near the top of the tower(9) where the suicide plane struck. Thus the 9 is made up of a zero and a 1 or 01 for the year 2001. Thus, there are two ones for the two towers showing the flames coming out of the top of the towers, plus a 9 which is also a one so there are two ones to make the 11th day, plus the 9 is also zero one for the year 2001.
According to the Austrian visionary whose German book Vision 2004, Manhattan will be destroyed by several atomic bombs shot by a missile from a ship in New York Harbor. All of Manhattan will be destroyed. I quote now from the seers friend who has interviewed the seer.
THE DESTRUCTION OF NEW YORK
The destruction of New York will not be part of World War Three. It will happen beforehand.
The seer cannot give the year (God has His own reason). New York is destroyed by the hatred of Islamic-Arab circles. It is probably connected with the US engagement in the second- and still to come-Middle East War; but in any case it is done in reply to something that the Americans have done to the Arabs. The seer has seen the destruction of New York in all details.
It is beautiful early summer weather in Austria. It could be noon. The year is not known, but it is speculated (based on predictions) that it could be 1998, plus or minus one year, but remember, this is only speculation.
New York will be destroyed by several small nuclear devices, one of them could be a small atomic bomb. The main nuclear device is probably launched from a ship. The missile will fly in a curve and explode behind a large building facing the sea. Buildings will not collapse immediately. The waves created by the nuclear explosion will shift whole buildings; some may lean a few degrees. However, the result is that they will break up at the base. If one watched the spectacle from the sea, it would seem as if the skyscrapers were walking towards the sea but slowly disappearing into the ground.
Manhattan will be flattened completely. New York's suburbs will not be harmed, only New York's center will be destroyed.
Radio and television in Europe will report the event. Words will not be winced. People will say that what the Americans did to the Arabs was abominable but to destroy New York is going too far.
The destruction of New York will have no consequences for Europe where no imminent signs are visible of a forthcoming war.
THE PRE-WAR PERIOD.
The rain of glowing fire in Austria, a cosmic event can be considered a warning that World War Three is close. The same applies to the destruction of New York,.which has not occurred yet as of October 2001. Even the armed conflict in the Middle East which will take place on Arabian soil and include Saudi Arabia, but does not involve nuclear weapons, is a sign of a major war to come. The USA will invade Saudi Arabia's oil area but will be defeated.
Prior to WWIII there will be war in Africa from the north to the South. (Already happened and is still happening). Only the West of the African Continent will survive relatively unscathed.
There will be civil war in France, Italy and England. Germany will suffer a similar situation also countries in northern Europe. Bohemia (the Czech and Slovak nations) will remain stable.
The energy crisis will reach its peak before World War III.
Shortly before the outbreak of WWIII, millions of people from the East and Southeast of Europe will flood Western European nations.
The chaos in Europe begins approximately at the same time, or shortly after the American forces have completed the greater part of their withdrawal from Europe.
One cannot rely on the USA during World War III, only on the Chinese. Immorality, the absence of love for one's neighbor and a refusal to serve in the armed forces will reign supreme. War in Western Europe is the punishment for it all.
Russia will be ruled again by an authoritarian Red regime. They will reassure the West of their "peaceful co-existence", and many Western Europeans will be blinded by it.
The book "Vision 2004" was published in the German language in
early 1995 by Mediatrix Verlag, Gloriette 5, A-3423 St. Andrae-Woerden, Austria
at a price of DM 48.which is $23.00 plus shipping.The author is Gottfried von
Werdenberg. If you know anyone who understands German and would be willing to
read it and make summaries for us, please let Fidelis et Verus know.
Lourdes Prophecy Decrees End of Muslim Religion About 2000.
The last prophecy #5 of Lourdes (1858) to St. Bernadette Soubirous (1844-1879) found in the Vatican Archives about 1978 has the following wording: "Your Holiness, the Blessed Virgin said to me that with the end of the twentieth century, it will also be the end of the age of sciences. A new age of the Faith will begin everywhere in the world. In the end proof will be given that it is God Who has created man. This will be the beginning of the end for science. Millions will return to Christ, and the power of Christ and the power of the Church will grow as strong as never before.
"The reason why many will turn their back on scientists can be found in the arrogance of doctors who use their knowledge to create a monster. Those doctors will use their ability, in order to create a creature from the substance of an animal; such creature is neither man nor animal. (Stem cell research requires that the cells grow in mice). People will know in their innermost depth of their hearts that it is wrong. However, they will be powerless to prevent the creation of such beings. At the end, they will hunt the scientists just as one hunts rapacious wolves. (Probably because these creatures will kill many as they have no soul).
"Prior to the end of 2000, there will be a final collision between the followers of Mohammed and the Christian nations. A terrible battle will take place in which 5,650,451 soldiers will lose their lives and a bomb of great power will be dropped on a city in Persia. (Iraq and Iran comprise Persia and USA Jews are lobbying for the US to attack Iraq). But, at the end "the Sign of the Cross" will be victorious, and all nations will convert to the Christian Faith.
Masons Suspend Controversial Fatima Priest
The Congregation for Clergy, in a Sept. 12 note, said the suspension of Fr. Nicholas Gruner, head of the Fatima Center in Fort Erie, Ontario, and of the Fatima Crusader Magazine, was "confirmed by a definitive sentence of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signature." The Apostolic Signatura is the Supreme Court of the Catholic Church.The last issue of Fidelis et Verus showed that the head of the Apostolic Signatura is a member of the Masonic Order and thus is automatically excommunicated. Thus, his decree is null and void.
Gruner, contacted by phone in Fatima, Portugal, said the timing of the Vatican publication, the day after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, "is very strange."
"We have been saying all along that acts of war will take place if Our Lady's request for the Consecration of Russia does not happen. This is the only weapon that can stop these kinds of things from happening." the 59-year-old Gruner said.
Although the suspension means Gruner has no permission to perform priestly functions, he said he continues to do so publicly because he believes the suspension is invalid.
VATICAN CITY: In an authoritative joint statement made by three Vatican departments and approved by the Pope, the Vatican Sept. 17 reaffirmed its refusal to permit the ordination of women as deacons because they cannot go on to priestly ordination.
VATICAN CITY. Cardinal Ratzinger said there are many possible ways to decentralize governing functions in the church.
"Undoubtedly, regional forums which take on even some of the functions until now carried on by Rome are necessary," said the Cardinal .in an interview with journalist Peter Seewald.
Serving as bishop of the Rome diocese and head of Vatican City state, being a global voice for peace and morality, writing encyclicals, naming bishops throughout the world, globetrotting, addressing pilgrims frequently, how can the pope find time for the prayer that must inspire his ministry? Seewald asked.
"Many of the things you listed can be changed," the cardinal responded. "One could discuss the ways in which forms of decentralization could lighten papal functions," he said, adding that the Pope called in 1995 for an ecumenical discussion on the exercise of the papal office.

The present U.S. war on terrorists will create animosity against the U.S. as
the war broadens to include Iraq and other nations. A Gulf War will break out
which the U.S. will lose. Iraq will pay a heavy price which will cause a Muslim
ship to destroy Manhattan using several atomic bombs. The Warning will be next
and then the Miracle at Garabandal, Spain..A small number will be raptured into
a heavenly safety zone until the war is over. The war will kill one third of the
world and a comet will kill another third so that only 2 billion people will be
left who will be reduced to farming methods in effect prior to modern ways.
There will be 20 years of peace. Chinese will predominate and so will conquer
the entire world led by the prophesied anti-Christ born in the Gaza strip of
Jewish parents..He will be worse than Stalin and Hitler combined and will commit
unspeakable horrors. Then Christ will come to stop the Chinese and he will judge
the living and the dead. There will be a 1,000 years of peace until the final
ending with the Last Judgment and a New Earth and a New Heaven.
In May 2000 the first commercial Catholic radio network went off the air after just 18 months in operation. Catholic Family Radio's launching in 1998 had been accompanied by a fanfare of publicity in the Catholic and secular trade media, and when it crashed and burned a little over a year later, it garnered almost as much press attention. The signal seemed loud and clear: "All Catholic, all the time" was a format without a future.
The long-running drama of Catholic Family Radio's demise has distracted attention from the quiet but steady growth over the past few years of small, independent Catholic stations around the country. With tiny budgets, grassroots listener bases, nonprofit structuring, and a local approach to programming and securing audience loyalty, these young stations may prove to be Catholic radio's real future.
Meanwhile, in a different kind of Catholic stealth operation, about 30 new
noncommercial Catholic radio stations have gone on the air, and license
applications are pending for at least six nore nationwide. Most of the new
stations have been started by small entrepreneurs with no previous experience in
radio: They're dentists, home-builders and computer programmers. What's driving
them is missionary zeal to find a place on the radio dial for Catholic teaching
and devotion. Protestants have a radio station in almost every city in the
nation so there is a long way to go for Catholic radio.
THE RENO REVOLUTION.
Douglas Sherman is typical of this new breed of Catholic apostles of the airwaves. A building contractor for 28 years, he heard the call of radio in 1996 while driving from Reno, Nevada to Vermont to visit his son in college. In between listening to the Catholic instructional and apologetics cassettes that he'd brought along, Sherman found himself scanning the radio dial. "I could pick up a Protestant radio station, sometimes four or five of them, at any point across the country," he recalls. "I never heard one Catholic radio station during the whole trip."
Sherman went home determined to change that situation. He received enthusiastic response from engineers and programmers at the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), founded by Mother Angelica and now the world's largest Catholic communications business which had statrted providing shortwave and radio services over its satellites. The link to EWTN allowed Sherman to fill his airtime with free Mother Angelica--supplied programs. With the help of the popular Catholic convert and apologist Scott Hahn, who lent his name to a promotional mailing that Sherman sent out nationwide, he raised $165,000 to buy a tiny 5,000-watt station in Reno. "WE paid for the station one $25 donation at a time," Sherman recalls.
Sherman's KIHM, known as Immaculate Heart Radio, 920 AM in Reno, was born in
early 1997, becoming one of the first stations in the country to air EWTN radio
programs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Sherman has since bought a stronger
station in Reno and started three new AM stations in Sacramento, Stockton, and
Fresno, California. All four are listener-supported, and when their listener
bases are added up, Sherman's signal goes out every day to a potential audience
of five million.
CHANGING AUDIO LANDSCAPES.
There are now 46 full-time Catholic radio stations in the country, only nine of which are officially connected to the Church via ownership by local Catholic bishops or dioceses according to Michael Dorner, a New Orleans-based federal employee who moonlights as publisher of Catholic Radio Update, an e-mail newsletter that chronicles the fledgling industry. "There han't been a new diocesan station started since the late 1970's, "Dorner says. "The growth is coming from laymen and laywomen who are broadcasting as EWTN affiliates. They're mortgaging their houses for a second time or risking their retirement savings and the kid's college funds to buy these stations.
In a country with 16,000 radio outlets, including 1,600 religious stations operated by Protestants, nobody is claiming that these upstart Catholic stations are poised to replace the "shock jocks" of secular talk-format, or even Christian rock, on Americans preset car-radio buttons. But they are bringing the Catholic message to areas of the nation where the Catholic population is sparse and the airwaves are filled with anti-Catholic prejudice and mis-information.
In Biloxi, Mississippi, a group of men and women studying to be Third Order Franciscans got together to statrt a station after their priest was maligned and the Catholic Church attacked on the air by a local Protestant radio evangelist.
The group received assistance from the Catholic Radio Association which
Sherman and two other pioneering Catholic station owners started in 1998. The
association, based in Jacksonville, Mississippi, provides free consulting
services---everything from engineering and technical solutions to legal and
marketing advice---to Catholics looking to get into radio. Association director
James Jarboe said he has helped start eight stations in the last two years and
is getting calls every day from interested groups in the United States and
THE EWTN CONNECTION.
Catholic radio means EWTN. Heavily weighted toward devotional programs such as daily Mass and the Rosary, EWTN also airs news, apologetics and instructional shows. EWTN reaches 55 million homes in 38 countries and offers its television and radio programming to stations free of charge. This makes it possible for a group to buy a station and then use EWTN's programming free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week This way stations can be founded inexpensively. If a person wants to found a Spanish Catholic station, Radio Paz in Miami broadcasts 24 hours a day and beams its signal via satellite to 98 stations in 16 countries in Latin America as well as South Florida. It produces 100 shows a week including talk shows, three daily newscasts, devotional and spiritual programs and sporting events ranging from Miami Heat Pro basketball and University of Miami football. The Archdiocese of Miami provides 10% of the annual budget. The rest comes from donations and advertising sales. They lose $200,000 yearly.
Our bishops are poised for a reentry into the media business in radio after a failed attempt to compete with EWTN in television. Pilot programs are on the air in a few dioceses. If successful, the half hour program will be offered free to all dioceses this fall who could buy time on local stations if they do not have a Catholic station.
Frank Murock, a 30 year veteran of television and president of Unda-USA, the nation's largest association of Catholics in the broadcasting business is producing the new program. He also serves as communications director of the diocese of Raleigh, North Carolina.
The demise of the Catholic Family Radio network was caused by their buying small-signal stations in large markets where it would have to compete against huge AM and FM stations. Then it decided on an all-talk format. That meant pitting its relatively inexperienced hosts against seasoned professionals with large and loyal followings such as Limbaugh, Schlessinger and James Dobson. In sending out weak signals and carrying a decidedly second-string lineup of hosts, it was little wonder that the Catholic Family stations could not attract ratings or advertisers, observers say.
Anyone who reads this article should try to promote Catholic radio in any way they can from looking for cheap stations for sale to encouraging Catholic groups and your bishop to begin a Catholic radio station. Protestants have 1,600 radio stations in the United States while Catholics have 46 so we need to wake up!
Muslims Almost Force Closing of Fidelis et Verus Office
Muslim terrorists caused donations to Children of Mary to cease entirely after September 11.. We mailed an appeal in October to 250 of our best contributors who have enabled us to continue. Response to that appeal has ceased and book orders are few.
Our income is nothing now. Our mailing of September 2 of 400 issues to eastern states produced a good response but the mailing of 400 to western states on Sept. 26 has produced no response at all except for 2 letters. We had counted on the western states to keep us going. But daily visits to our post office box showed an empty box so we sent the appeal mentioned above which helped us continue. A trip to St. Petersburg in November was not fruitful so we returned to Ft. Lauderdale. .
We have enough funds to print and mail to half of the mailing list. We have been unable to pay the book bills of $800.00, our $700.00 federal tax or reduce our credit card debt of $5,850.00

Our Lady Predicted Terrorism, Carnage in 1986 at Bayside, New York
Warned by Virgin Mary.
"There will be blood flowing in the streets of the United States. There will be carnage such as has never been seen before in the United States and Canada. Do not take lightly the threats of those murderers in the European states that have felt this carnage. They are now setting up their plans to bring destruction to the heart of the America...."
"The enemy will come from foreign nations now to try to shed this blood. Do not take their words to you lightly. They will enter the United States for one purpose-to destroy the morale."
Our Lady, September 27, 1986.
World Trade Center.
"There will be a great destructive act committed in your city of New York."
Our Lady, September 14, 1976.
Peace of Mind.
"Those who are of well spirit will have nothing to fear, My child, for they will go through this crucible of suffering with more hope and courage."
Our Lady, August 14, 1975.
"My children, you understand it is a known fact that when the morals of a country fall, that country will be destroyed in one way or another. Wars are always a punishment for man's sins."
Our Lady, June 18, 1992
"Great trial shall be set upon your nation..."
Veronica: There's forming directly over Our Lady's statue----a very large cross, the handle, though, of a dagger...with a loop at the bottom, like. It's a symbol. And Jesus is nodding....It's a very strange-looking, dagger-like saber, with a cross on a handle....like a very strange-looking Arabic--or something.
Jesus, December 24, 1979.
Reign of Terror.
Veronica: I see there are very sinister-looking characters walking down the road nonchalantly but carrying bags. Within those bags there are submachine guns...
"I see murder ahead now, My child, in your city of New York. Many shall be mowed down. It is an attack by a communist nation...
"These interlopers upon the serenity of the United States have dark skins. They are not from this nation, but they come from a presently warring nation. It is their object to destroy all and cause chaos in the city of New York. With their plans there will be bombs placed in strategic places and many shall die at the hands of these ruffians...
"One big reason for permitting this disaster in New York would be the abortion mills throughout the city and the country."
Jesus, October 1, 1988.
Our Lady told Veronica that another key target of the terrorists would be the Statue of Liberty.
"The road away from these disasters....is only guided by prayer, penance, and atonement."
Our Lady, March 18, 1989.
Empire State Building Next.
Veronica: I see two men... They're carrying with them now, bags....In those bags they are carrying all of the implements of destruction....
"My child, they will choose the Empire state Building to bring more notoriety to the world."
Jesus, October 1, 1988.
Demonic Possession of Terrorists
"The minds of those who have fallen out of grace shall be captured and used by satan....All manner of foul deeds, of cruelty, and of death shall come from their evil minds.
"Your city, My child, New York, shall go through a crucible of suffering, as many cities in your country and throughout the world."
Jesus, December 31, 1975..
WAKE UP AMERICA!
"My children, awaken from your slumber! You live in a dream world. You believe that this cannot happen to you. O My poor children in North America--Canada, the United States---you do not know what it is to see the blood flow in your streets, to see your loved ones torn---their arms, their legs missing, their bodies and their bowels spewing out upon the grounds. Is this what you want?"
Our Lady, June 18, 1982.
"How many times I came upon earth to try to warn you. Those nations that listened were free from harm. But they had to pray the Rosary---the Rosary and the Scapular."
Our Lady, April 14, 1984.
"Blood shall flow from the streets of New York soon...
"Both front and back doors must have a crucifix. I say this to you because there will be carnage within your areas, and this will pass you by if you keep your crucifix upon your doors."
Jesus, June 30, 1984.

Cardinal Ottaviani's Objections to the New Mass sent to Paul VI on September 25, 1969.
VI..We have limited ourselves to a summary evaluation of the new Ordo (Mass) where it deviates most seriously from the Theology of the Catholic Mass and our observations touch only those deviations that are typical. A complete evaluation of all the pitfalls, the dangers, the spiritually and psychologically destructive elements contained in the document----whether in text, rubrics or instructions would be a vast undertaking.
No more than a passing glance has been taken at the three new Canons, since these have already come in for repeated and authoritative criticism, both as to form and substance. The second of them gave immediate scandal to the faithful on account of its brevity. Of Canon II it has been well said, amongst other things, that it could be recited with perfect tranquility of conscience by a priest who no longer believes either in Transubstantiation or in the sacrificial character of the Mass---hence even by a Protestant minister.
From the outset, the new rite is launched as pluralistic and experimental, bound to time and place. Unity of worship, thus swept away for good and all time and what will become of the unity of faith that went with it and which we were always told was to be defended without compromise.
It is evident that the Novus Ordo Mass has no intention of presenting the Faith as taught by the Council of Trent, to which, nonetheless, the Catholic conscience is bound forever. With the promulgation of the Novus Ordo Mass, the loyal Catholic is thus faced with a most tragic alternative.
VII... In abandoning its immemorial Roman character, the Ordo has lost what was spiritually precious of its own. Its place has been taken by elements which bring it closer only to certain other reformed liturgies(not even to those closest to Catholicism) and which debase it at the same time. The Eastern Orthodox Church will be ever more alienated, as it already has been, by the preceding liturgical reforms.
By way of compensation, the new liturgy will be the delight of the various groups who, hovering on the verge of apostasy, are wreaking havoc in the Church of God, poisoning her organism and undermining her unity of doctrine, worship, morals and discipline in a spiritual crisis without precedent."
Paul VI was the secretary of Pope Pius XII when he was just Fr. Montini but
the Pope sent him to Milan as he was too liberal for the Pope. Paul VI said Mass
in our seminary chapel in 1958 in Boston and all said he would be Pope some day.
He was very reverential when he said Mass. He became Pope in 1963 after the
death of Pope John XXIII. It is amazing that Paul VI let others make a new Mass
that was so deficient in Catholic theology and was akin to dressing Christ in
dirty rags with many holes in the dirty rags.
The harsh Arab climate produced a harsh tribal society in which violence was the norm. And violence is still the norm in Islamic societies. In pre-Islamic times, Arabs worshiped and prayed to male and female spirits that they thought existed in trees, stones, rivers, and mountains. Mohammed's tribe had adopted a black stone as their tribal magic stone and set it up in Mecca at their pagan temple called the Kabah which had 360 gods represented. Since these Arabs were traders and traveled a great deal, there are stories in the Koran that can be traced to religious stories of Babylon, Egypt, India, Persia and Greece.
The pagans of pre-Islamic Arabia taught that everyone should bow and pray towards Mecca (the religious and trade center of Arabia with its Kabah) during set times of the day. Everyone should also make a pilgrimage to Mecca to worship at the Kabah, at least once in their lifetime. Once they arrived in Mecca, the pagans ran around the Kabah seven times, kissed the black stone and then ran about a mile to the Wadi Mina to throw stones at the devil. They also believed in the giving of alms and condemned usury. They had a certain month in which fasting was to be done according to the lunar calendar. Mohammed was raised in this pagan religion.
Finally there is the influence of foreign religions such as Judaism, Zoroastrianism from Persia, Hinduism, Buddhism, Greek and Egyptian mythologies and Christianity all of whose stories found their way into the Koran.
The Beginning of Islam.
The founder of Islam is Mohammed (AD 570-632). He was born in Mecca to Abdullah and Aminah. He was born into the Quraysh tribe, which was in control of the city of Mecca and which acted as custodian of the Kabah and of the religious worship centered around it.
At 25, Mohammed married a 40 year old widow and ran the family stand in the market. At age 40 Mohammed experienced a religious experience and claimed that Allah had called him to be a prophet and an apostle.
Muslim tradition states that an angel of Allah named Gabriel appeared to Mohammed to reveal the Koran in parts. Allah speaks through the angel Gabriel to man and man is the receiver and not the originator of the Koran.
Mohammed at first shared his call only with the family and friends in secret. Once his message became public he became subject to ridicule and hostility by the population at large and even members of his own family.
In order to appease his pagan family members and the members of the Quraysh tribe, he decided that the best thing he could do was to admit that it was perfectly proper to pray to and worship the three daughters of Allah:Al-lat, Al-uzza and Manat. This led to the famous Satanic Verses in which Mohammed, in a moment of weakness and supposedly under the inspiration of Satan, succumbed to the temptation to appease the pagan mobs in Mecca (Sura 53:19).
Because of the ridicule and fast growing hostility, Mohammed eventually fled to Medina, a town 250 miles away from Mecca, in AD 622. This event is called hijira by the Muslims and marks the beginning of the Muslim era and calendar.
While at Medina, Mohammed planned and organized the spread of his new religion. The only powerful method he could use was that of violence in the name of Allah--the jihad. This jihad was so successful, despite so many oppositions, that at Mohammed's death in AD 632 half of the Arabic world had become Muslim, and by AD 750 the Muslims had conquered the Persian and large parts of the Byzantine empires. Mohammed based his new religion at Mecca.
THE LAW OF ISLAM.
The law of Islam is called the Sharia, which means "the path to a waiting place." For the Muslims it is revealed/derived from four sources, which are:
1. The Koran, supposed to have been revealed by an angel to Mohammed but in reality is a mish mash of many religions from Judaism to Hinduism as discussed earlier.
2. The Hadith, a record of words and deeds of Mohammed by his relatives and friends,
3. The Sunnah, or acts of Mohammed.
4. The Ijma, consensus of the Muslim community or of its leading scholars.
THE BELIEFS OF ISLAM (AQA'ED).
The beliefs of Islam, according to the Koran and Muslim traditions are six:
1. Belief in Allah;
2. Belief in the prophets;
3. Belief in the day of judgment (therefore belief in Heaven and Hell);
4. Belief in the revealed books;
5. Belief in the angels;
6. Belief in fate or providence.
Every Muslim must believe and profess these beliefs. If any Muslim renounces Islam, he becomes an apostate and will be liable to the greatest punishment, death.
THE OBLIGATIONS OF ISLAM.
Every Muslim is bound to observe the following obligations:
1. Belief in the oneness of Allah and his prophet Mohammed;
2. Offering of daily prayers five times;
4. Observing the fast of Ramadan (30 days);
5. Performing the hajj to the Kabah in Mecca once in a lifetime, if possible.
Every Muslim is obliged to pray five times a day in a mosque but if not possible, he should face towards Mecca to pray. The prayer always begins: There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger.
The Koran has to be read daily, at least a chapter, and it has to be read in Arabic. There is also a rosary prayer called the tasbih which contains 100 beads. A Muslim has to say this at least once a day if he can, saying "All glory and praise be to Allah and thanks to him. All glory and praise be to Allah, the great."
The preferable and most suitable place of prayer is a mosque. Neither a woman nor a non-Muslim are allowed inside. According to Islam they would defile it. Before entering a mosque a Muslim must perform the ritualistic ablution prescribed by the Koran. If he finds himself in the middle of the desert at the time of prayer he should cleanse himself with desert sand!
Friday is sacred for the Muslims and it is the best of all days according to Muslim traditions. For on a Friday, according to Islam, Adam was created by God, expelled from Paradise and was readmitted. The day of Judgment will be on a Friday. Mohammed too, according to islamic tradition, was born on a Friday. So Friday is a day of prayer and good works for the Muslims.
According to the Koran, Friday is so great and excellent that even the fire
of Hell which is stirred up every day at noon won't be stirred up on Friday
because of its excellence. The Koran clearly states the existence of Heaven and
Hell. Heaven is represented in a very materialistic, sensual and human way.
Also, heaven is promised to those Muslims who would fight in the jihad
and die in it.
THE ERRORS WITHIN ISLAM.
There are so many errors, contradictions, mistakes within Islam that it would
take several more pages which we will cover in future issues of Fidelis et Verus.
There is no original copy of the Koran anywhere.
