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:
Islam – A Deen, ...
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 ...
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 ...
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, ...
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 ...
"Allah made people to work for him.
Allah says to them: Work for me; that is why I made you; and I will take care of all your needs.
Most people seem to flip this proposition on its head. They seem to say: ...
"Here is a simple way to teach most people how to work for Allah: Tell them to work for Allah the way they would work for themselves. And to work for themselves the way they say they work for Allah.
People do in life what they want to do. They achieve what they want and set out to achieve.
And all this is as fair as it could be.
Layisa Lil Insaani Illaa Maa Sa'aa, says Almighty Allah in the Qur'an.
Meaning, "You ...
When we look at all that we have been given by God -- health, wealth, family, residence, job, and all the rest -- it is not a question of whether we deserve any of it or not.
The real point is ...
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 ...
A Thought about Muslims
Muslims are indeed quite a people and they always seem to want to do their own thing -- never mind what Islam really is and never mind what's happening to the world.
Muslims may certainly be psychologically ...
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 ...
What we want is not just for people coming to Pasha Hour International for "more" ideas.
Or for more listening pleasure.
It is for people to take the ideas -- every single idea -- from Pasha Hour International and working on it ...
I have seen these past several decades, people embracing Islam, both in the US as well as the UK. They are men as well as women. And many of them are smart, talented and interesting people.
And what is the first ...
Those Working for Allah must know this simple – and self-evident – fact. For, it is an axiom of Working for the Creator of the Worlds.
They should know that at all times they are in the safe, secure and unfailing ...
“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 ...
"Sometimes those working for Allah may wonder why we have to keep doing the same thing over and over again.
Why, they may ask themselves, do we keep working so hard and see such minimal results.
Why do we all follow the ...
“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 ...
“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.
“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 ...
“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!
“Advice to those working for Allah in America: Don’t say or do anything in private that you do not wish to see make the front page of The New York Times the next day.” (Dr. Pasha)
Discusses how and why Muslims should organize conferences, seminars and public get-togethers. Provides instructions on the correct Islamic etiquette and procedures when inviting guest speakers to come and give lectures on these occasions.
A much needed guide on the subject. An ...
“In spite of anything anyone can say about American history, American culture or about America’s role in the world, there is an undercurrent of compassion and decency that runs through American psyche that is almost, almost, without parallel in contemporary ...
