Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World
(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur'an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --
And which One Does Not?)
One of the biggest ongoing challenges before those working for Allah -- you, me and anyone else who say they are -- is this: How long will we continue on this difficult and rather lonely path of Allah’s work?
Hazrat Nuh, Alaihis Salam, stayed forever.
Hazrat Ibrahim, Alaihis Salam, took every challenge and hardship life threw at him and stayed the course.
Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, never looked back, even under the severest of tests and tribulations.
Hazrat Husain, the Prophet’s beloved grandson, may Allah be pleased with him, gave his life fighting for justice and liberty, rather than submit to a life of bondage and injustice.
So, the question always is, who will stay the course; who will be steadfast; and who will blink or buckle?
That is what we call "Working for Allah." It is nothing more or less than what some others may call "Islamic Work."
One of the most important elements of this work is its Integrity: Integrity of the Work and the Personal ...
"Consider Islam just another project, a personal project.
Just like going to school.
Getting a job.
Building a business.
Finding a mate.
Acquiring a home.
Getting your kids married off, as they say.
Watching your favorite TV show or football or cricket or basketball game.
And then ...
"Two kinds of people live on God's earth – among all the millions of other kinds that there are:

People do in life what they want to do. They achieve what they want and set out to achieve.

Reading Qur’an – or praying or fasting or going to Hajj – is no substitute for working for Allah, which is basically inviting the whole world to Allah with love and respect.
Working for Allah means leaving no stone unturned in ...
Islam is growing in leadership – continuously – and assuming greater individual and personal responsibility by the minute till you make the whole world see Islam the way it really is or you depart from this world trying.
Islam is not ...
Islam is based 1000 % on personal integrity. That means the credibility and believability of those who "Preach" Islam and "Practice" Islam.
Where our personal integrity is compromised, everything else becomes irrelevant.
In fact, Islam itself becomes a moot point.
After that, it ...
Our goals are – in the words of Dr. Pasha – to help the Muslim and non-Muslim communities in and around Oldham, and throughout the world:
Different kinds of people among us – today and at other times:

Some of us decided to organize Listening Groups -- or Discussion Groups -- to listen to portions of Pasha Hour International prerecorded programs.
Not a bad idea, in fact, I should think.
But what "Inquiring Minds," as they say, would be curious ...
To all those people who keep asking what is wrong with the world, my advice is simple and direct: Look to Muslims!
Check to see what the Muslims are up to. See how Muslims are behaving. And see in what state ...
Only Muslims Can Defeat Muslims?
Dr. Pasha has repeatedly pointed out how only Muslims can defeat Muslims. That seems to be the Muslim story -- forever.
Use that model to interpret the events in the world today -- or at any ...
Those who say they work for Allah, they must know that Allah has put them in a very special place.
They are Allah’s very, very special people.
And the whole Kawun, the entire Kaa-i-naat, that means all the occupants of all the ...
I have not the slightest doubt in my mind that God Almighty will bring people to our work – Insha-Allah.
That is, if that happens to be his wish and his will. And if that is what he wants to ...
For those of us who say they work for Allah, cutting corners is not for us. For others it may or may not be, but for those of us working for Allah, it is not.
Therefore, every job we undertake, whether it ...

“Now that you have had your fun and games in America for over four decades, why don’t you now join me in taking the Qur’an to every home and heart that needs it?”
Dr. Pasha Challenges American Muslims!
“While the Next World should be the most important thing in our life, we should not forget that the only path that leads to that Next World is This World. Therefore, if we really want that Next World to be a good place for ...
“I am not saying Muslims should not be “nice.”
And I am not saying civility is not a virtue.
In fact Islam is all about being “nice” and kind and merciful and saying and doing “nice” things as much as you can.
“If you ask me why people accept Islam, I can give you two answers: one a very simple human one; the other a most complex unfathomable divine one.
From a human point of view, the process and outcome of conversion from ...

Why, they may ask themselves, do we keep working so hard and see such minimal results.
Why do we all follow the ...
