Book Review

"If the book is read with the seriousness and attention it merits, it has the potential to have as profound and far-reaching an impact on religion, society, government and human relations as Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species eventually came to have on scientific and social thought nearly a century and a half earlier."

    Doing Everything Right and Well:
    That Is an Islamic Requirement!
    [Quote – 915]

    Posted: Apr 24, 2018 | 1 day ago.

    When Muslims do whatever it is that is required of them, and there is much that is required of them on a daily, hourly and second-by-second basis, they are required to do it “perfectly.” 

    Even though Perfection is a Divine Attribute of Allah. 

    That is why we refer to God Almighty as Allah Subhanahu — broadly meaning, free from, and above and beyond, all limitations and imperfections and impurities that are the natural and inborn characteristics of his Khalq — Creation.

    But it is that Divine Attribute — the quality of doing everything well and “perfectly,” and to the very best of our ability and resources, that we are required to emulate right here on this earth. Even while operating within the framework of our own native human limitations, impurities and imperfections.

    Takhallaqoo Bi-Akhlaaqillah, says Prophet Muhammad, 
    Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam!

    Paraphrase:

    “Embrace and emulate in your own imperfect and flawed and finite lives 
    God’s Inimitable and Perfect and Infinite Divine Attributes!”

    It is as part of this most amazing requirement that Muslims are characterized as the “Best Nation on Earth.” 

    Khayir Ummah!

    Because they have been instructed, and they can be trusted, to do well and “perfectly” what they have been told to do. What they are required to do!

    Meaning, Muslims would be expected to do well, and to their best attainable human level of “perfection,” whatever is required of them in this world — whether it is something pertaining to This World or something that concerns the Next World.

    That is, from a Worldly or from an Other-Worldly point of view.

    Go figure!

    What Do Modern Muslims Have in Common with
    Ancient Roman Emperor Nero? [Quote – 914]

    Apr 23, 2018 | 2 days ago.

    They say that one day the great ancient City of Rome caught fire, and flames leaped from everywhere. It is said that the Roman Emperor at the time, a fellow named Nero, did not care about the fire or the devastation it was causing to the city, but went on playing his fiddle.

    So, Nero played the fiddle as Rome burned. Not a very good thing for an emperor to do, you would say, right?

    I did not make any special effort to learn the history of this. But I see a modern parallel that I find to be compelling. The way most Muslims in the world, including the majority of the so-called Good and Pious Muslims, act and carry on while the world of God all around them crumbles to ashes in the fire of mendacity, injustice, cruelty, greed, corruption, blind ambition and poverty.

    As the fire consumed Rome, Nero is said to have reached for his fiddle. And as these deadly fires consume the world, Muslims dive into their mosques or run to Makkah to perform an extra Umrah. to rake up some “Extra” Thawaab.

    Muslims are supposed to be the guardian angels of this world. Allah entrusted the world to their care and command and personal responsibility. As a result, Muslims are supposed to protect and serve the best interests of everybody — Muslim and non-Muslim; human and non-human — in this world.

    That is the Unchanging Muslim Mission on Earth.

    But looking at Muslim priorities and preoccupations today, and looking at the way today’s Muslims go about their lives, and looking at Muslim reaction to happenings and conditions in the world, that is not what a Visitor from Mars would conclude: That Muslims really are the caretakers and custodians of this world, appointed to that task by Almighty Allah himself.

    And that they did not really take a leaf out of the pages of Nero’s book to use it as their Deen.

    A Simple Advice to Muslims —
    And Others! [Quote – 913]

    Apr 01, 2018 | 3 weeks ago.

    If we cannot use Allah’s Kalaam, the Qur’an, to earn our Aakhirat, the Next Life or the Next World, we can at least use it to make our Duniya, This Life or This World, better. 

    This may sound sarcastic, but it is real and sincere and true. Because the Word of God — the Noble Qur’an — is the most amazing thing humans have in their hands. There is not an issue it does not address. And there is not a problem people face for which the Qur’an does not offer a solution.

    Understanding the Qur’an properly, and following its directives faithfully, is the surest formula to make human life on earth better for all human beings. And for the entire Planet Earth.

    Everything useful and good in this world, including all the good and positive advances in science, comes either directly or indirectly from the Qur’an. 

    And the Qur’an — and what a great miracle this alone is! — does not stand alone. It confirms and validates and supports the “Revelations” that Allah gave to all the other Prophets, Alayihimus Salaam, before Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.

    This alone is a most amazing and unfailing formula for mutual respect and cooperation and coexistence for the followers of all faiths and religions in this world.

    Simple and true and workable. Hear the Qur’an say it:

    Ta’aalawu Ilaa Kalimatin Sawaa-in Bayinanaa wa Bayinakum!

    Paraphrase:

    “Let us proceed and work together on the basis of whatever we hold in common together.”

    How can the world go wrong with that?

    And isn’t that what the United Nations is all about? And the European Union is all about?

    And isn’t that what any Federal Government is all about, whether it is in Spain or in the United States?

    Islam Is a Businessman’s Deen [Quote – 912]

    Apr 01, 2018 | 3 weeks ago.

    May Allah grant Muslim Business People and Entrepreneurs the most amazing success in their businesses and make it a force for good in this world.

    Islam is a businessman’s Deen. When Muslims abandoned that, they became slaves. 

    Allah’s Rasul, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, was a businessman. The people of Quraish were all business people. Abu Bakr, Uthman, and other great Sahabah Kiram, Radiuallahu Anhum, were all business people. 

    Even Hzrath Khadija, Radiyallahu Alaiha, was a great businesswoman.

    It is time Muslims rediscovered the true nature and spirit and the global reach of their Deen, which is business and entrepreneurship and enterprise and tireless effort and struggle to make life better both in this world as well as the next world.

    When We Are Given the Blessing of Iman [Quote – 911]

    Apr 01, 2018 | 3 weeks ago.

    The key requirement of life is “Iman.” Even that is “Given,” not earned. So, what are you going to do?

    When Iman is right, then, nothing that happens is wrong. Whatever happens comes from Allah. And our job is to say: Yes!

    And that is the end of the story.

    A Muslim’s life runs, not just on “Hope” and but on the Twin-Turbos of Hope and Fear.

    Al-Khawuf.

    Ar-Rajaa.

    Allah’s Twin Promise in the Qur’an is: Surely, Bad Days will be followed by Good Days.

    Fa-Inna Ma’al Usri Yusran,
    Inna Ma’al Usri Yusraa!

    And Allah never breaks his promise.

    The narrow path between Fear and Hope, in this world, is lit be iron resolve and trenchant sharpness of mind. 

    Unremitting effort then fuels the drive till the last breath leaves the body.

    Muslims, Allah and the Qur’an [Quote – 910]

    Feb 10, 2018 | 2 months ago.

    Muslims are a most amazing people. They have their own very special way of dealing with God and the Qur’an.

    God can say in the Qur’an whatever he wants and however he wants to say it. Muslims will do precisely what they are trained and inclined to do. 

    And they will try to fit the Qur’an in what they do, however best they can. 

    And they will recruit all kinds of Mullah Mercenaries with their Pocket Fatwas to help them achieve that goal: the goal of bending and fitting the Qur’an to their own purposes, preferences and priorities.

    All in a Day’s Work:
    In a Muslim’s Day that Is! [Quote – 908]

    Jan 28, 2018 | 2 months ago.

    By Hashim Mohammed

    Sometimes, I do feel a Muslim knows how to live on God’s earth, where God made him his own personal representative.

    A Muslim somehow seems to know how to account for his days and nights.

    And a Muslim, the way I see it, is Self-Motivated, Self-Directed and Self-Moving

    And a Muslim does not wait around for all kinds of others to carry him on their shoulders, his duties to perform.

    Here now, if you will, is a Panorama from a Muslim’s Daily Life:

    A Muslim begins his day with Allah’s name. He opens his eyes and says: Alhamdulillah!

    So, Alhamdu Lillah, on Wednesday, I was able to continue distributing our Literature in the North-East of the Country.

    I did so at the Libraries at these two most beautiful towns. You supply whatever names you want.

    And also at the Masjid at this beautiful town.

    And at this incredible small Shopping Mall in the heart of this great town.

    The owner of the mall, who I suspect used to be one of Dr. Pasha’s students at one time, placed a table at the entrance of the mall to display our literature. I cannot say what was the response, because he started doing so only a few days ago.

    Today, I distributed in the Central Part of the Country at the libraries at these two other towns: Call them what you want.

    And also at the Masjid in this other town.

    All in a Day’s Work, as they say. A Muslim’s Day that is, if you allow me to say that.

    May Allah help people to read and benefit from the books and booklets — the Literature —  that he allows us to provide.

    May Allah bless Br Pasha and his family for providing this literature. And may Allah bless all those others and their families for helping in its publication and distribution.

    May Allah bless me and my family with the health and strength and energy and Tawufeeq to continue ‘Working for Him’.

    Democracy Is from God and Dictatorship Is from the Devil [Quote – 907]

    Jan 26, 2018 | 2 months ago.

    For all the confused people in the world, including many super-confused Muslims, let me make it as clear and straightforward as I can: Democracy is from God and Dictatorship is from the Devil.

    To the extent Democracy implies rights, freedoms and opportunities for participation and representation for “The People” at all levels, and in every aspect and sphere of Society, it is from God Almighty. And it embodies the essence and the spirit of Islam. 

    This was the very mission of Islam on this earth: To make Peace and Justice and Tranquility prevail on earth.

    And to grant all the most wonderful rights to all human beings. From basic Human Dignity to Life, Liberty and the Freedom of Conscience and Belief and Expression.

    And the right to Health and Healthcare for All.

    And the right to a decent Livelihood and adequate Shelter.

    And the untrammeled right to universal Education for every male and female in the Domain.

    And the right of full Participation in the Electoral Process and of Choosing their ownLeaders and Governments.

    These are some of the rights that Islam came into the world to give all of God’s Creation.

    Dictatorship on the other hand, any kind or type of Dictatorship, whether it is a civilian or military dictatorship, or a hereditary monarchy, pure and simple, that limits the rights and freedoms of “The People” in any form or fashion, and denies them opportunities for full participation and representation in the Political Process and in Government, is from the Devil.

    And it represents all that is alien and hostile and antithetical to Islam.

    And it embodies all that the Devil tries to create on earth.

    A Message for Eidul Adha – Festival of Sacrifice:
    What Are You Sacrificing? [Quote – 907]

    Jan 26, 2018 | 2 months ago.

    My message for Eidul Ad-haa is a simple one. And it does not matter what year we are talking about.

    When Muslims and their small and big leaders proceed to slaughter and sacrifice their camels, sheep, goats and cows, I suggest they ask the following question of themselves:

    To what extent are they sacrificing these animals at the altar of God Almighty, and to what extent are they sacrificing Islam and Muslims, and the overall wellbeing of God’s Creation, at the altar of their own egos; selfishness; greed; corruption; politics; ambition; and sell-out to the Devil and his human minions and agents, both in their own ranks as well as from alien faiths and foreign lands?

    Read Aayat Karimah:

    Lan Yanaalallaha Luhoomuhaa wa Laa Dimaa-uhaa
    Wa Laakin Yanaaluhut Taqwaa Minkum.

    Paraphrase:

    “It is not the blood and bones of the sacrificial animals that God cares about, but the true state of your own hearts: whether or not you care about God more than you care about all else.”

    Trying to Understand God and His Ways in His Creation [Quote – 906]

    Jan 26, 2018 | 2 months ago.

    If you ask me why people accept Islam, I can give you two answers: 

    (a) one, a very simple human one.
    (b) The other, a most complex, unfathomable, divine one.

    From a human point of view, the process and outcome of conversion from this or that “Religion” to Islam, and, more specifically, from Non-Islam and Pre-Islam (Jaahiliyyat) to Islam, is the composite function of a billion (times Infinity) variables, some known, most unknown or exogenous, each with its own specific value and error component and distribution, acting in concert.

    And, from that perspective, the entire result being entirely predictable or explainable, within a certain margin of error, provided we have at our disposal all the theoretical models, and all the methodological tools and instrumentations required for the purpose of figuring out these things.

    And we also have all the applicable specific variable values.

    I am calling this human equation simple because there is a way, and there is a hope, that somehow and sometime, maybe, we can solve this puzzle. 

    The divine answer, on the other hand, may appear simple when stated in our daily language. But it is unknowable in both theory and practice, as it transcends the limits of human knowledge and the powers of human understanding in every way and at every level. 

    And as it defies the capacities of human instrumentation to (define and to) measure.

    For, it means knowing God in all his attributes. And — Allahu Akbar and Subhanallah, who can ever make such a claim?

    And it means understanding the calculus of God’s mercy and dispensation, and of God’s Grace with regard to his creation.

    Simply stated, it does not lie in human power to know or understand God and the internal dynamics of the way God does things.

    Or even the external dynamics, for that matter, that may appear to meet the human eye, and to register on the human radar, and to be amenable to human instrumentation and scalability and measurement.

    Our very humanity is defined in terms of our general inability to comprehend God and the ways in which he dispenses his grace and mercy to his creation.

    Read the Aayat Karimah:

    Wa Laa Yuheetoona Bi-Shai-im Min ‘Ilmihi.

    Paraphrase:

    “Not an iota of his infinite knowledge are they about to grasp or comprehend!”

    Meaning, when it comes to God, we as human beings draw a complete blank.

    A Dictatorship Is a Dictatorship, Is a Dictatorship, Is a Dictatorship!
    And Whatever Else a Dictatorship Is, It Is Not Islam! [Quote – 905]

    Jan 24, 2018 | 3 months ago.

    Muslims have an abundance of dictators and tyrants and despots of all kinds, varieties and stripes – military, civilian, royal, and every other kind.

    Egypt has been groaning and moaning and sobbing under the heel of the most brutal military dictators, one after the other, for the past nearly 70 years.

    Other Muslim tyrants, despots, hereditary monarchs, absolute kings and sundry dictators from the area – the so-called Middle East – instead of helping the people of Egypt to get rid of their Military Dictators and regain their Liberty and their freedom and self-respect and dignity and human rights, empty their huge coffers to help establish and consolidate and strengthen the barbaric military dictatorship of Egypt.

    That is the state of the Muslim Ummah today, if anyone cared to know. Muslims done in by fellow-Muslims.

    The simple fact is, tyranny has many faces and they are all from the Devil.

    In case anyone has trouble understanding this simple equation, let me make it as clear as I possibly can: A Dictatorship by any name and in any form is still a Dictatorship.

    It is one of the many, many faces of tyranny. Nothing more, nothing less.

    And it is directly from the Devil.

    Love of God and Love of God’s Creation –
    How Much Daylight Can There Be Between the Two? [Quote – 904]

    Jan 24, 2018 | 3 months ago.

    Your journey to God begins when and where your preoccupation with your own self tapers off: Into taking a closer and deeper look at the Creation of God.

    The more ascendant and salient you make yourself in your list of priorities, and in your own scheme of things, and the more prominent your child, spouse, job or business or politics is in the calculus of your life, the slower and more arduous and fitful your journey to God and the farther and more uncertain your destination.

    Unless, of course, you master the true Islamic way of doing things under which you love God first, and foremost, and unconditionally, and above all else, and then you compress and derive all your worldly loves, whether it is your love for your family, career or even yourself, from that single most dominant and all-consuming passion in your life – Love of God.

    That total and single-minded devotion for God then channels, modulates, validates, legitimizes, blesses and consecrates every other lawful love you may have in this world, whether it is love of a child, parent, sport, business, spouse, career, nation, society, culture or place.
