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."

    Slaves Do Not “Sacrifice”
    They Just Do What They Are Told to Do [Quote – 865]

    Posted: Oct 16, 2017 | 12 hours ago.

    Slaves do not sacrifice. They only try and measure up. And they try to please the Master — to the extent they can. 

    And of course many cheat like crazy.

    As for me, I have no expectations of ever measuring up to what Allah wants from us or what we owe Allah. 

    The fact is there are two kinds of people in this world: 

    One, those whom Allah himself nudges and guides and pushes in the direction of working for him. 

    Two, those whom he turns away from working for him — using all kinds of devices.

    Then there is a third category: the Pretenders. The Munaafiqoon. They are neither here nor there.

    And these groups are decided when they were still in the belly of their mother — by Allah himself.

    Take it how you want. But that is how it is.

    How Shaitan Generally Works in Our Lives [Quote – 864]

    Sep 19, 2017 | 3 weeks ago.

    Shaitan often starts small. It is amazing what an inveterate optimist Shaitan is. 

    He watches and observes people and their conditions. He constantly monitors the situation of each one of us. And he tests the waters everywhere he can.

    Allah has given Shaitan considerable powers to be able to do that — until the Day of Resurrection.

    Rabbi Anzirnee Ilaa Yawumi Yub’athoon.

    Paraphrase:

    “Can I have until Resurrection Day 
    to be able to trick and fool and mislead these wretched humans?”

    That is what Shaitan said to Allah. 

    And here is what Allah said to Shaitan in response to that strange and arrogant request:

    Inaaka Minal Munzareen.

    “Absolutely! 
    Go, do what you want! 
    You are free Until Resurrection Day.”

    And then Shaitan makes his move. 

    He makes an entry wherever and whenever he finds an opening — in our hearts, in our minds, in our souls, in our bodies, in our activities and interests, and in our lives. 

    And in the circle of our friends and acquaintances and contacts. 

    And in our businesses, professions and entertainment. And in all our other pursuits.

    And then he builds on whatever success we are able to deliver his way. He grabs and consolidates whatever territory or aspect of our life we vacate and concede.

    That is why it is important for us to monitor Shaitan, and keep abreast of his tricks and activities. And then make each other aware of his machinations. And the Satanic Goings-on around us.

    And help each other to cope with them.

    If we don’t do this, we will be fighting a losing battle against Shaitan. Ours will at best be a rear-end action. And our defenses against Shaitan will crumble rapidly.

    I have been calling the attention of Muslims, in America and elsewhere, to this important task at hand, going back all the way to the very early 1970s. But without much success.

    Is anyone surprised?

    Perfection: Divine and Human [Quote – 863]

    Sep 19, 2017 | 3 weeks ago.

    Perfection belongs to God Almighty. It does not, cannot and should not belong to anyone else. Otherwise, they will all be Gods, a contradiction in terms and a meaningless expression. 

    For, by definition, God is someone who is “Perfect” in every conceivable way. And God is and can only be one. Otherwise, there is no God. Period.

    And yet, having been created by that same Perfect God, and blessed by him with whatever skills, abilities and qualities he has bestowed upon me, it becomes virtually impossible for me to touch anything and not to seek to nail it as they say.

    That is, not to do anything I do in a way, and to a level and standard, that does not leave a single stone unturned. That does not cross every “t” and dot every “i.” And makes you say, well, it looks like I cannot do much else with it.

    And that includes doing whatever Allah allows and directs me to do, including the writing that I do from time to time. 

    Every time I sit at the computer, and write something, I ask myself: 

    Is everything the way it should be? Is every word, nay, every letter, in its place? And as it should be? And is every punctuation mark?

    And is every fact, every bit and piece of information and every data point as accurate as possible?

    And is every argument as sound, and is every conclusion as valid, as it should be?

    How have my own Nafs and my Hawaa, and my own implicit biases and predilections, shaded and shaped what I am saying?

    Overall, is the piece that I have written as “humanly perfect” as it is possible for a piece of writing to be, even though perfection is never our lot at any level?

    I am driven to think it is becoming harder to meet those standards. Mainly for paucity of time, and the rush of life, and the demands that tend to pile up from every side.

    But an Aayat comes to mind. 

    And what does it say about our Iman, or about our relationship with Allah, that the world we live in, our own personal life I mean, can accommodate and handle only one or two Aayats at a time! And that is all that is given to us in our hours and hours and hours of daily living?

    The Aayat is this:

    Sa-Yaj’alullahu Ba’da Usrin Yusraa!

    What an Aayat! Allahu Akbar! Like every other Aayat in the Qur’an!

    Paraphrase:

    “Don’t let all the hardships break your spirit.
    Better times are just around the corner.”

    And to think there may still be people around in this world for whom Allah and Allah’s Book may not be enough or sufficient!

    Reacting to What We Read [Quote – 862]

    Sep 17, 2017 | 4 weeks ago.

    Nobody can tell others what to think. Or how to react when they read one of our posts. But still, we all need to be educated and trained into how we should process information.

    And how to react to the information we process.

    As a result, when I write what I do, my expectation is people will read it. And then they will reflect on it. And then they will react to what they read.

    And one way to react to what people read is to ask questions pertaining what they read. And to ask questions that arise from what they have just read.

    And then, whenever possible, people should go and do further research into the topics addressed and the points raised in the posts that people read.

    And thus they will be further educated and trained.

    And that is why I write: to educate and train people.

    Take an example: Recently, I wrote a note on three Indian Muslim Traitors who helped British Colonizers to conquer India from its Muslim rulers. 

    Now, anyone who reads this note, and happens to be a Muslim, should be asking: Really? Goodness, me, I never knew that! Is that really what happened?

    And then it would be perfectly natural for them to mutter to themselves: 

    “That is sad. In fact, how shameful is that? I hope that sort of thing never happens again.”

    Unity of Human Life in Islam [Quote – 861]

    Sep 13, 2017 | 1 month ago.

    In a sense, there really is no distinction between “Private” and “Public,” or “Personal” and “Social and Professional” in the life of a Muslim. 

    A Muslim’s life is one seamless whole. 

    And it all belongs to Allah and must be used to fulfill Allah’s mandate of being Allah’s Khalifah on Earth.

    Innee jaa’lun fil ardi Khalifah.

    In the Qur’an, Ibrahim, Alaihis Salam, states this approach to human life like this: 

    Inna Salaatee wa Nusukee, 

    wa Mahyaaya wa Mamaatee 

    Lillahi Rabbil Aalameen.

    And he says that is what is required of us:

    Wa Bi-dhaalika Umirtu.

    “That is what I am commanded to do.”

    And then he says:

    “It is just that I am the first to respond!

    Wa Ana Awwalul Muslimeen!

    Who knows who is next in line to respond to Allah’s Call!

    We and the Qur’an [Quote – 860]

    Sep 13, 2017 | 1 month ago.

    Those of us who say or claim or pretend we are Working for Allah, we all have a simple motto in our life.

    And it is: 

    Taking the Qur’an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It —

    And Which One Does Not?

    Regardless of how sincere or otherwise we may be, or how successful or otherwise our efforts may turn out to be, or how well or badly we may be doing our job, Qur’an remains our stated goal, our overriding purpose in life, and our motto.

    Who knows, maybe, Allah will take us on our word and treat us based on our claims and not based on the true condition of our hearts or the success or failure of our efforts.

    Hadith Sharif [Quote – 859]

    Sep 13, 2017 | 1 month ago.

    When people do not aggressively seek a position of power and influence, and Allah gives it to them on his own as it were, Allah then helps such people to handle the responsibilities that go with that job.

    How Muslims Lost India to the British [Quote – 858]

    Sep 13, 2017 | 1 month ago.

    Mir Jaafar, Mir Sadiq and Nizam of Hyderabad had very different agendas from Sirajuddaulah and Tippu sultan. 

    The “Niyyat” of the first three named above was to help the British defeat the Muslim kings of India. And they succeeded in their goal and in their mission. 

    All three of them teamed up with the British Colonizers against Indian Muslim rulers and played a critical role in ending Muslim rule in India and in handing over the Indian Continent to the Colonizing British.

    Thus began a whole new chapter in the global expansion of the British Empire! And all the evil that went with it.

    Three Indian Muslim Traitors named above were the principal architects of that shameful history!

    Talking about Muslim Unity/Disunity [Quote – 857]

    Sep 13, 2017 | 1 month ago.

    Continuing our conversation on Muslim Unity/Disunity, let us add this observation: 

    One reason why people disagree and act differently — Muslims as well as others — is the difference in their “Intentions.” 

    In their “Niyyaat” — plural for Niyyat.

    In other words, people disagree — and even work against each other — because they want different things. Because they have different agendas. 

    Or, maybe, they are fighting to take possession of the same thing: wealth, woman, title, job, territory, you name it.

    Simple!

    According to the very first Hadith in Bukhari Sharif

    “Intentions are central  to human actions.”

    Innamal A’maalu Binniyaat!

    Fit the World into Islam, Not the Other Way Around [Quote – 855]

    Sep 07, 2017 | 1 month ago.

    We must resist the temptation to fit Islamic concepts, practices and teachings into the mold of our own experiences with modern life.

    We come from different backgrounds and the understanding of many of us about Islam is often skewed and flawed. 

    Also. there are times, when our own ideas — it is all part of Hawaa — have a more powerful hold on our imagination than the ideas that Islam presents. 

    And it is not always easy, nor is it a quick process, to break that hold.

    I know from my own personal experience. 

    For, at times it has taken me years and even decades to come out of the specific dumps and bayous and quicksands of my own personal training, education, culture and background.

    And overcome my own biases and preconceived ideas and notions.

    And subordinate them to Qur’an and Hadith and recast them all into a proper, accurate and authentic Islamic mold.

    For a Muslim, Vacation Is Worship [Quote – 854]

    Aug 29, 2017 | 1 month ago.

    My submission to all my Muslim friends who are taking a vacation with their families: 

    Please do enjoy your vacation with your families. 

    For, your vacation could be your Ibaadat.

    It could be your Worship!

    May Allah keep you all in good health and give you tons and tons of fun — both in this world and in the next world — just like the Qur’an says:

    Rabbanaa Aatinaa Fiddunya Hasanata,
    Wa Fil Aakhirati Hasanah!

    For a Muslim, slaving in Allah’s Work all night and all day, Working for Allah as we have been calling it, even vacation is a way to worship Allah.

    Your vacation could be you Ibaadat.

    Your vacation, therefore, is not only a way to recharge your bodies and minds, and cement your family ties, and opportunities to meet all kinds of new people, it is a way to replenish the treasures of your souls right here in This World.

    And, at the same time, it is an extraordinary opportunity to rake up enormous amounts of Divine Blessings, and rewards, and Thawaab, in the Next World.

    Happy Hunting People! Enjoy Your Vacation!
