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."

    Seize the Moment,
    And Move with Allah’s Light, Your Wonders to Perform [Quote – 900]

    Posted: Jan 22, 2018 | 18 hours ago.

    Every moment in your life is a wonder. If you did not get this simple fact, you never really lived.

    And every breath you take is a miracle from God. If you don’t see that, you are really blind.

    And your heart is constantly vibrating with the power of Allah to reflect his will in and through you. If you do not understand that, you may as well be a robot or a machine, and not really a human being.

    And the light of Allah, while eternal and constant, strikes the prism of human hearts differently at different times. If you failed to catch that light in your heart, and let it illumine your life and the world around you, the clouds of darkness surrounding you and your world may never part.

    And if you will not let Allah’s light bring clarity to your life, you may have virtually signed off on an eternity of stagnation and misery for yourself and for those over whom you may have influence.

    In short, you may have chosen a life of hell on earth.

    So, seize the moment, and move with Allah’s light and power, your wonders to perform.

    Who, But a Most Merciful and Loving God? [Quote – 899]

    Jan 18, 2018 | 4 days ago.

    Dr. Firdaus Kamalodeen

    What an amazing concept it is: the concept of Working for Allah

    More proof, as if we needed more proof, that this Islam could not have come from any human source whatsoever. 

    I am very grateful to Allah for making me — and others — see and understand this over so many years. And for continuing to do so to this day. 

    For my part, I believe I have been the chief beneficiary of this understanding. And life as we know it today makes so much more sense, as some would say, as a result of internalizing this concept. I shudder to think of the alternative. 

    But knowing some thing and executing it are two very different things. 

    And while deficiencies and limitations exist in my understanding, I am even more keenly aware of the deficiencies in my execution. I worry about this all the time.

    But Allahu Akbar, how God Almighty helps us deal with this “obsession” too — an obsession that could be most debilitating if not addressed in a timely and effective manner. 

    Allah bless Dr. Pasha for helping so many of us understand and deal with this very, very human weakness by repeatedly arguing that constantly lamenting our weaknesses and inaction does not take us anywhere. Nor was it really Islamic in essence and spirit.

    Instead, Dr. Pasha never tired of arguing, we must learn to replace our sense of helplessness, and our inaction, with a positive spirit of enterprise, dispatch and action. And that means whatever action we are able to muster and manage at any point of time, in any particular place and with regard to any given situation. 

    And that means each one of us just doing what we are able to do, such as we are. That is the critical construct: Such As We Are!

    Again, that is a concept that could only come from a loving, kind, compassionate, merciful and most generous God!

    Dr. Pasha draws our attention to a most amazing Aayat of the Qur’an — and which Aayat of the Qur’an is not most amazing? 

    Faqra-oo Maa Tayassara Minal Qur’an. 

    Dr. Pasha’s paraphrase of that Aayat Karimah:

    “Just pick up a copy of the Qur’an and read whatever and 
    however much you easily can.”

    Who but Allah could offer a deal that generous to the human beings that he designed and created with so many weaknesses and infirmities.

    So, now, rather than obsessing with things, and with my own deficiencies and failures, I try to channel whatever energy Allah gives me into doing what I can. 

    Again, Allah bless Dr. Pasha for showing us these things.

    But the truth is that doing Allah’s Work is indeed the remedy for all our problems and challenges. But perhaps chief among these problems and challenges is that either we don’t realize this or we forget it so often.

    Working for Allah: 
    A Working Definition – or Description! [Quote – 898]

    Jan 18, 2018 | 4 days ago.

    When we say we all must be engaged in Woking for Allah, here is some of what we mean:

    It means our production and distribution of literature;
    And our meetings and our Dhikr sessions;
    And our service activities of all kinds;
    And our aid and humanitarian projects;
    And our time with the Qur’an;
    And our time with the Hadith Sharif;
    And our time and effort learning or teaching something;
    And our outreach efforts;
    And our activities to invite people to Allah;
    And everything else that we do of that nature and type.

    Worshiping Allah is Working for Allah. And Vice Versa! [Quote – 897]

    Jan 18, 2018 | 4 days ago.

    What people call “Worshiping Allah” is pretty much the same thing that we call “Working for Allah.” 

    And Vice Versa! That means “Working for Allah” is “Worshiping Allah.”

    And that means they are both the same if you understand them. Even though they may be a bit different in some practical aspects and in some technicalities.

    Reminding Us a Second Time:
    Heavenly Virgins Come with a Sky-High Price [Quote – 896]

    Jan 17, 2018 | 5 days ago.

    Jannat – what people call Paradise or Heaven – doesn’t come cheap or easy. There is a lot of toil, tears and heartache that goes into earning it.

    All those virgins the mealy-mouths and the mercenaries in the media and elsewhere rave about in relation to Islam and Muslims, they come with an astronomical price tag: a clean mind; a pure heart; a chaste life; and a mouth that is not putrid with spewing hate, trash-talk and vile propaganda against those who cannot defend themselves.

    Working for Allah Is Not Part-Time Work [Quote – 895]

    Jan 17, 2018 | 5 days ago.

    Working for Allah is not part-time work.

    Nor should it be way down on your To-Do List. Or even second, or third or fourth.

    In fact, all your other work – if there is such a thing – derives its legitimacy, and its blessings from God, based on how committed you are to do Allah’s Work, and how sincerely and seriously you take that commitment, and how honestly and diligently you try to fulfil it.

    The More Time You Spend Doing Allah’s Work,
    The More Time You Seem To Have for Your Own Personal Work! [Quote – 894]

    Jan 17, 2018 | 5 days ago.

    Allah says all human life belongs to him. People say, no, we will keep the bulk of our life for our own personal use and give Allah a little bit of it.

    If you ask me, this is actually a form of Shirk – splitting up God’s authority and rights with others, such as yourself in this case. And it is worse than rejecting God outright.

    So, what happens when you give all your life to Allah, as you ought to, and as Allah asks you to do? Believe it or not, the opposite happens!

    Meaning, you get more time and energy and resources for yourself. To do your own work as it were.

    Allah bless the man who once made the comment I paraphrase here. He said:

    “The more time you spend doing Allah’s Work,
    the more time you seem to have on your hands for your own Personal Work.”

    And, conversely, the less time you spend doing Allah’s Work,
    the less time there seems to be for your own Personal Work!”

    Allahu Akbar, what a sentiment! What a thought!

    Does anyone else feel the way this gentleman seems to feel? Because I can see quite clearly what he means.

    Or is it a special line God Almighty opens up to some people, much to the envy of the rest of us?

    How Can Ignorance and Knowledge Be the Same? [Quote – 893]

    Jan 17, 2018 | 5 days ago.

    I don’t know if this is called a redundancy or a tautology, or even gibberish, but it strikes me that there is no fool more dangerous than an ignorant fool.

    From an Islamic perspective, ignorance is not bliss. And it can be a very dangerous and unfortunate thing, ignorance I mean. And it can be at the root of a lot of evil.

    And a lot of bad things that happen to people in this world could be traced to the evil of ignorance.

    The Islamic model is the exact opposite of this. 

    In Islam, Knowledge Is Bliss. And God Almighty is the Most Knowledgeable One. He is Al-‘Aleem! 

    And Muslims name themselves: Abdul Aleem. Meaning: The slave of The Most Knowledgeable One.

    Therefore, in Islam, there is no equivalency between knowledge and ignorance. They are two opposite things. One to be desired and diligently sought and the other to be shunned and avoided.

    The Qur’an asks: How can the two be the same?

    Hal Yastawilladheena Ya’lamoona Walladheena Laa Ya’lamoon?

    Paraphrase:

    “How can the two be equal: Those who know and those who don’t know?”

    Blessing the World Nonstop Is What Islam Is All About [Quote – 892]

    Jan 17, 2018 | 5 days ago.

    Today’s definition of Islam, if you have not heard it from me before, and even if you have, is this: 

    Blessing the World – the whole world – without regard to race or religion, and without regard to gender, class or nationality.

    How sad it is for me to tell you at this stage in the history of the world that that is precisely what Muslims all over the world actually do – Twenty-Four-SevenBless the World!

    And when I say “Muslims,” I mean every single Muslim individual everywhere.

    And, I suspect, that is not something anyone else in the world does. That means no non-Muslim of any kind or category or description is so completely engaged in blessing the world of Allah so profusely and so comprehensively.

    This is not to attack or insult non-Muslims in any way, but only to point out a most important difference about how Muslims and non-Muslims live their life on this earth: Muslims bless everybody and everything everywhere; non-Muslims do what they do. Why not ask them what exactly it is that they do.

    Just ask the non-Muslims how many times a day they say Assalamu Alaikum to all sundry!

    Unsolicited Advice to a University Student [Quote – 891]

    Jan 17, 2018 | 5 days ago.

    Here is a paraphrase of an advice given to a fairly brilliant post-graduate university student who wrote to apologize, and provide some excuses, for not being able to be as active as before in what we have been calling Working for Allah.

    The student’s explanations included the following:

    Continued and more focused work on the methodology and literature review parts of the thesis; concurrent work on a new competitive and refereed scholarly conference paper; preoccupation with tests that seem to be getting tougher all the time; and such.

    Now, I am known to have a serious weakness, among all the other weaknesses that afflict my character: a marked penchant and alacrity for giving advice, whether it is asked for or not.

    And whether anybody pays any attention or not, and whether anyone listens or not.

    I just love to offer advice to anyone who happens to be within earshot.

    So, here is how my advice came out:

    May Allah help and bless you. Right now, your thesis, your tests, your conference papers and your journal publications are your Islam. 

    So, make sure you stay with your Islam.

    At the same time, also make sure you do not abandon “Allah’s Work” – which is basically doing your own work; doing your family’s work; doing your neighbors’ work; as well as doing everybody else’s work – when you are done navigating these rough patches of your student life, and things get a bit smoother and easier.

    I could say that because that is what Islam is all about: going about living your life in a way that is best for you and best for the whole world, both at the same time.

    And doing it all within the framework of Working for Allah, at the core of which is the duty and responsibility of Taking the Qur’an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It.

    How I wish Muslims would seek clarity in life –and in relation to Islam, which is what life is all about.

    And which is also what Islam is all about. 

    For, in Islam, life and Islam are synonymous. Life lived according to the laws and commands of Allah is Islam, period.

    Confusing? Sit down and work on it and you will see how amazingly clear and simple it really is.

    And, oh how I wish Muslims would at least accept clarity when it is offered to them, as it is being done here, on a platter as they say!

    God bless the Muslims. And God bless his world.

    All the Time that You Spend Not Working for Allah,
    How Will You Account for That Time? [Quote – 890]

    Jan 17, 2018 | 5 days ago.

    I may have said this before, but let me say this again anyway.

    Qur’an tells us that Allah made us – created us – to Work for Him. The words of the Qur’an are clear, simple and direct. And here they are:

    Wa Maa Khalaqtul Jinnah Wal Insa Illaa Li-Ya’budooni!

    And here is a paraphrase of these divine and immortal words of the Qur’an:

    “I created not the Jinns and the Humans,
    save for one single purpose
    and one single mission:
    To Serve Me and To Work for Me!”

    So, anything that humans engage in, other than Serving Allah and Working for Him, marks them down as fugitive slaves, on the run from Allah’s justice, with the whole universe in hot pursuit of them to apprehend them and to bring them to justice.

    We all know Allah is most forgiving and most accepting of excuses from his slaves, and he is most compassionate and generous.

    Yet, I cannot help wondering how in the world I will, and others will, ever account for all those seconds and minutes, and for all those days and months and years, we all spend not doing Allah’s Work, not Working for Allah and not Serving Him – however we may want to define and interpret the expressions Working for Allah and Serving Allah

    The Devil Seeks Out Good People to Mislead and to Destroy [Quote – 889]

    Jan 14, 2018 | 1 week ago.

    The Devil – Shaitan or Satan – is a smart investor. 

    He does not like to waste his capital on fools and wastrels who are already in his bag. People who are busy squandering their capital with God Almighty in one foolish way or another such as drinking or gambling.

    And those given to a life of adultery, fornication and pedophilia. And those engaged in moral, economic, political and cultural corruption.

    As a rule, he likes to maximize returns on his time, talent, training and effort. So, often, he chooses his targets quite wisely and carefully.

    Bad People are already under his influence and in his grip. And he knows that. So why should he waste his time with them, right?

    Shaitan knows that Bad People will be only too happy to do his bidding. All he has to do is snap his fingers and they will come running to him like a bevy of hungry, lovesick poodles. And he will make available for them all the opportunities for evil that they crave and indulge.

    It is, therefore, the Good People that Shaitan – the Devil – is most after. And it is Good People that Shaitan worries about most.

    Shaitan’s biggest challenge is how to start the Good People off on a slippery slope. How to make Good People take their first Bad Step

    Once the Good People take their first Wrong StepShaitan knows that will bring them down from their secure Good Position and send them down spiraling to a free fall – and to eventual perdition.
