Wreckage of Algeria airliner found in Mali
Mali presidential aide says “humans remains and wreckage” of Air Algerie plane found near the village of Boulikessi.
The wreckage of a missing Air Algerie plane has been found about 50km from the border of Burkina Faso near the village of Boulikessi in Mali, a presidential aide has said.
“We sent men with the agreement of the Mali government to the site and they found the wreckage of the plane with the help of the inhabitants of the area,” said General Gilbert Diendere, a close aide to president Blaise Compaore.
“They found human remains and the wreckage of the plane totally burnt and scattered.”
He told the AP news agency that they went to the area after hearing from a resident who described seeing a plane go down.
The plane, designated AH5017 and carrying 116 people, disappeared from radar on Thursday over northern Mali while on a flight from Burkina Faso to Algeria. It was carrying mainly French and Burkina Faso citizens.
Earlier, the French foreign minister, Laurent Fabius, said the plane had “probably crashed”, while the French president, Francois Hollande, said his government would use “all military means” in Mali to help in the search for the plane.
Two French fighter jets are among aircraft who had been scouring the north of Mali for the wreckage, and France has hundred of troops stationed in Mali after defeating an al-Qaeda-linked rebellion last year.
The flight, scheduled by Air Algerie and operated by the Spanish private company Swiftair, was flying in heavy rain, according to reports.

Egypt turns back Tunisian plane loaded with medical supplies for Gaza
TUNIS – Head of Tunisia’s al-Nahda party Rashid al-Ghannoushi revealed on Monday night that Egypt has refused to receive a Tunisian plane bound for Gaza loaded with medicines and medical supplies.
Al-Ghannoushi told Al-Jazeera TV network that the Egyptian authorities had refused to allow the plane to land at the airport nearest to the Gaza Strip, pointing out that it was carrying medical supplies badly needed in the beleaguered Strip.
The plane was supposed to fly back injured people who sustained serious wounds during the ongoing Israeli aggression on Gaza to receive treatment in Tunisia, he explained.
Tunisian president Moncef Marzouki had declared a week ago his country’s intention to send a plane carrying medicines and medical supplies for Gaza Strip.
Along the same line, the Egyptian authorities continued to prevent a team of European specialized surgeons from having access to Gaza despite possessing the needed papers for that.
Dr. Mohammed Abu Nada, coordinator for the Forum of Palestinian Doctors in Europe, told Quds Press on Tuesday that they have been prevented by Egyptian army from entering into Gaza for the fifth day despite having official permits allowing their access.
The FPDE delegation includes a number of general surgeons in addition to surgeons specialized in vascular surgery and pediatric surgery.
583 Palestinians were killed and 3640 injured in 15 days of Israeli ferocious pounding of the besieged enclave. Hundreds of homes, hospitals, mosques, and schools were demolished during the Israeli airstrikes, navy shelling, and artillery bombardment.
Q&A: I Don’t Pray, Will My Fast Be Accepted?
Question and answer details
|Name of Questioner:||Hisham|
|Question:||As-Salamu `alaykum! Will the fast of one who abandons prayer be accepted? Or, are the acts of worship all linked together in sense that if one is abandoned, then none of them will be accepted?|
Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.
Dear questioner, we’d like to say that we are impressed by your question, which emanates from a thoughtful heart. May Allah Almighty help us all adhere to the principles of this true religion, Islam, and enable us to be among the dwellers of Paradise in the Hereafter, Ameen.
In his response to your question, the eminent Muslim scholar, Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, states the following:
The Muslim is required to perform all the acts of worship: prayer, Zakah, fasting, and Hajj. Scholars of Islam hold different opinions regarding the person who abandons any of these obligations without an excuse.
Some of them declare disbelief on those who abandon any one of them. Some declare disbelief on those who only abandon prayer, because of its status in the religion of Allah and the hadith:“Between a worshiper and disbelief is abandoning prayer.” (Reported by Muslim) Some scholars say that faith and Islam remain with those people as long as they believe in Allah and His Messenger and what he came with, not denying them or doubting them. Then, the final group is those who declare them as sinning transgressors against the laws of Allah.
I think the last view is the most just of the sayings and the closest to the truth. If this is so, then if a person is not constant in carrying out the obligations because of laziness or desire (not denying or belittling them), then his iman(belief) is deficient. But Allah will not put to waste the reward of any action that he does in a good way. For him is goodness for what he has performed, and a sin will be written for what he has neglected.
Allah says: (And everything small and big is inscribed.) (Al-Qamar: 53) and (So whosoever does an atoms weight of good shall see it, And whosoever does and atoms weight of bad shall see it.) (Az-Zalzalah: 78)
Allah Almighty knows best.
