New Feature

In the Name of God!

We are thrilled to introduce our visitors to a new feature on IslamicSolutions.com: My Log by Dr. Pasha. We hope and pray it will be the kind of one-of-a-kind, cutting-edge item that we have come to expect from Dr. Pasha. We know it will be free, frank and fearless. In addition, we understand, it will also be, in the words of Dr. Pasha “a bit hard-hitting when, where, how and as it needs to be.”

We seek nothing except to love God and his creation and we seek nothing except to serve God and his creation.

So help us God!

My Log – 1

Talking Gender Neutrality –
with Liars-Liars-Pants-on-Fires

I don’t really know what a blog is. Nor am I interested in finding out.

Well, I know and I don’t. Maybe that is a better way of putting it.

But here is My Log for the day. Or for until such time as God Almighty, the only actor in the world, enables me to hit these pages again with a new one.

I didn’t say “real” and I didn’t say “genuine” or “true.” I said “only” and I meant “only.”

And by that I meant: there is only one doer, maker and actor with regard to all things in this world. And that is God, the All-Mighty.

Absolutely no “ifs” and no “buts.”

You can always talk to me about it if you wish. Provided you have the ability, and the will, to express yourself in civilized English – without spewing hate or malice, that is, and without resorting to gratuitous profanity.

Make it American English, please.

But I promise you this InshallahGodwilling that is.

Nothing outlandish, just “Godwilling” as any full-blooded Pilgrim or True Patriot of yore would have said: I promise you I will not have little green “men” or yellow toothy “smileys” jumping and winking or blinking at you from My Log.

It will be most likely regular English text all the way – with other languages mixed in as needed.

So, here is the first My Log of the day, week, year, century. And it is mostly directed at the willful and deliberate Liars-Liars-Pants-on-Fires.

And of course it is also for those who may be genuinely and honestly confused or unaware or misled or misinformed. May God Almighty forgive, guide and help them and make it easy for them to learn and understand.

Ask them please – Anyone, anywhere: Just ask the Liars-Liars-Pants-on-Fires please – to go find a book that is 1400 years old on this planet and that talks about “Men” and “Women” in the same breath, as in “Believing Men and Believing Women” for example, other, of course, than the Qur’an.

Ask them if they ever saw or heard of any book like that?

And then ask them how many years has it been since they first taught or learned in schools, colleges and universities, and since they either wrote or read in Style Manuals and in Public Speaking Textbooks, about something called “Gender Neutral Language”?

Twenty years, would they say? Or is it 30 years, maybe?

How many years really? All right, let us call it a full and 50 years even. Even though we all know full well that is not the case.

Ask these Liars-Liars-Pants-on-Fires please: “How many years ago was it, ladies & gentlemen, that it was first drilled into your heads that ‘from now on’ you shouldn’t keep saying the Masculine Third Personhe” and “him” all the time ad nauseum but should try and use, rather, something a bit more “Gender-Neutral” such as “them” for example?

Ask them, really, how long ago was it that the notion of “Gender Neutral” expressions was hammered into their pea-size dinosaur brains that evidently are 10 sizes too small for their bodies.

Naturally, once again, I am referring to the willful and malicious Liars-Liars-Pants-on-Fires and the mercenary anti-Muslim propagandists and unscrupulous anti-Islam and anti-Qur’an hate-mongers.

And then ask them please:

“Sir, Madam, have you no shame that you spit such venom against Islam and against God’s word, the Qur’an, or you act so high and mighty when it comes to Islam and the Qur’an, for, the Qur’an has been promoting Gender Neutrality for close to a millennium and a half when you roamed the earth with Dinosaurs or slept in the caves with Neanderthals?”

Ask the Liars-Liars-Pants-on-Fires: “Have you no shame, Sir? And madam, have you no shame, madam?”

Ask them that. And then tell them Dr. Pasha sent you and told you to ask.

And while you are at it, tell them please that the Qur’an does much more than initiate the bare-bones concept of Gender Neutrality.

The Qur’an actually pioneers, promulgates and promotes something you would never know, for, they haven’t drilled that into your heads yet: Gender Respect and Gender Inclusiveness.

Tell them that the Qur’an goes way beyond Gender Neutrality and teaches and promotes something that the world has yet to learn: the 25th Century, or even the Fourth Millennium, concepts of Gender Respect and Gender Inclusiveness.

And here is how the Qur’an does it – unlike anything you ever heard or saw or thought possible – that I paraphrase here directly from the Qur’an with help from Yusuf Ali’s translation (33:35):

  • “Most assuredly, men who submit to God and women who submit to God;
  • and believing men and believing women;
  • and devout men and devout women;
  • and truthful men and truthful women;
  • and men who are patient and women who are patient;
  • and men who fear God and women who fear God;
  • and men who give charity and women who give charity;
  • and men who fast and women who fast;
  • and men who guard their private parts and women who guard their private parts;
  • and men who think and talk about God a great deal and women who think and talk about God a great deal;
  • Surely, for them Allah has prepared forgiveness and a great reward.”

Ask the Liars-Liars-Pants-on-Fires if they ever saw anything like this before. Ask them if they were even aware that there was something like this out there.

Then tell them to read, learn and repent.

And tell them to never again malign Islam and Qur’an using Gender as a battering ram.

But make sure they do not steal this stuff and put their name on it as they may have a propensity to do.

Ask these ill-of-heart and foul-of-mouth Liars-Liars-Pants-on-Fires how they plan to deal with this real-life fact – this Real-Time Miracle of Islam – when they set off on their next anti-Islam, anti-Qur’an depredation?

And tell them to beg or steal a measure of humility and respect when next time around they talk about Gender and Qur’an or Gender and Islam in the same breath.

In a word, tell them to repent.

END
