See Islam for all that Islam really is:

Peaceable! Positive! Simple! Sensible! Elegant! Civilized! Constructive! Hopeful! Contemporary! Pragmatic! Problem-Solving! Moderate! Modern! Balanced! Just! Fair! Compassionate! Truthful! Nice! Easy! Fun! Global! Divine! Authentic! Original! Free! (Dr. Pasha)

The One Thing We All Need To Do — 
When We Say We Are Working for Allah — 
Is To Read Our Literature! [Quote – 725]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


All those among us who think or say they are Working for Allah, the greatest personal favor anyone of them can do to each other is to read our literature — carefully, systematically and painstakingly.

Almost word by word.

And over and over and over.

Books like Four Words that Changed the World  All It Takes Is You.

And books like Still Working for Allah in the West — Theory and Methodology.

And all the other books and articles that are on www.IslamicSolutions.Com.

It is also the greatest favor they can do to themselves. For, that is the core and essence of our work — first and foremost. 

And everything else is predicated upon it.

If they all read and understand the literature, they will know what the real work is that we all are supposed to do. 

And how to go about doing that work.

And why they should be doing it in the first place.

If, on the other hand, they cheat on reading the literature, or cut corners, or make excuses, or pretend they did not hear the call, or honestly think they did not need to do it, they will at best be mere flashes in the pan — here today, gone tomorrow.

From time to time, they will be doing bits and pieces of this and that as they feel the need or the pressure and as they are told to do.

At best, their work will be episodic, disjointed, directionless, ad hoc, purposeless and in a sense helter-skelter.

As the Qur’an puts it, they will essentially be:

Fi Kulli Waadin Yaheemoon.

Paraphrase:

“They will be wandering here, there, everywhere,

without really knowing where they are going,

or what they are doing — or why.”

Others, the more sturdy ones, will move to greener pastures — to anything from Islamic Cookouts and Halal Travel to any other Islamic outfits and celebrity joints that may be peddling a brand of Islam with more jazz, oomph and pizzazz.

All will end up in Paradise. After they all die. No doubt about that.

And that is the beauty of it all. Islam, at any level, is basically anybody’s ticket to Paradise.

But right here on this earth, which is the real question, Allah will find his own people who will do his work. 

People who will not cheat; who will not cut corners; who will keep their word; and who will fulfill the promise they made to Allah. And they will be true to the covenant they entered into with Allah.

Fa-Minhum Man Qadaa Nahbahu wa Minhum Man Yantazir.

“Some kept their word and already fulfilled their commitment;

Some others await their turn.”

Wa Maa Baddaloo Tabdeela!

“But the one thing they did not do was to 

change the terms of their contract with God.

And go back on their word.”

So, that is our work, people, that is our work: to read and make others read; to learn ourselves and to teach others.

Even as we never stop running around like mad doing all the chores and physical labors that we must do and that are associated with our work.

Burning the midnight oil during the night, as it were, and searing the soles of our feet during the day in the blistering sun.

Ruhbaanun Billaili,

Fursaanun Binnahaar!

“They will live like monks during the night,

And like brave soldiers on horseback during the day.”

And that is what we all are supposed to do.

Read! And get everyone else in the world to read!

Learn and teach everyone else in the world.

Understand and make everyone else in the world understand.

And do all the work pertaining thereto. As long as there is a breath left in our body.

Not on others’ sayso or behest. 

But on our own initiative and responsibility.

That is our work.

Dhaalikumullahu Rabbukum!

“That is your God! 

And that is the work you do for him.”

And:

Fa-Maa Dhaa Ba’dal Haqqi Illad Dalaal?

“Once we turn our back on Haqq, 

the Truth,

And the right way of doing things,

what else is there but to get lost and go astray?”

END
