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?)
We all know God Almighty does everything. And no one else does or can really do anything.
Teachers are nothing but means that Allah uses to educate us.
When he wants to, he can take a most uneducated human on earth -- call him The Unlettered Man if you will -- and use him to educate the whole world. As he did with Sayyidina Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam!
Parents are nothing but a way to create human life on earth.
If God Almighty were to wish, he can make a baby without a father, as he did with Jesus, Alaihis Salam, or a full-grown man without either a father or a mother, the way he did with Adam, Alaihis Salam.
Transportation, vehicles, animals, machines, are all nothing but means to carry objects, human or otherwise, from Point A to Point B.
Were God to wish, he could transport a man from the middle of the desert in Makkah, around 7th Century, and whisk him off to Jerusalem, miles and miles and miles away, and from there all the way up into space, beyond Moon, Mars and the Galaxies, to the heavens beyond, and back, all before the night is out and before the cock crows.
Was that precisely not what God Almighty did with Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, during Israa’ and Mi’raj?
How well do we know that doctors and medicines are nothing but merely means to healing!
Should God Almighty please, he can make a fountain of water gush out from under your feet, and make that water a cure for all your ailments as he did with Ayyub, Alaihis Salaam.
And yet, how little we seem to care!
And how little we seem to believe!
Qaleelalan Ma Tu’minoon!
And how sad and pitiable are our ways and attitudes as humans beings!
Let us say Taqwa is the name Islam gives to how much you love and fear God.
And how mindful you are of his presence every moment and with regard to every aspect of your life.
That means if you have Taqwa, you love and ...
"If human beings had all the knowledge in the world.
And, in addition to that, if they had all the power in the world.
And, furthermore, if they had all the specialized skills, tools and body parts in the world.
They will be able to fly ...
"Generally, what people do or don’t do in their lives is a reflection of their priorities. When you see Muslims doing or not doing certain things in their lives, it is simply a reflection of where their priorities stand." (Dr. Pasha)
“Working for Allah is what you do for living – meaning, that is what you do as the overriding purpose and preoccupation of your life.
All else – your job, career, education, family, friends, everything – is part of the support ...
“There are those in this world who wish to die for Allah. I wish to say to them: “Have you ever tried living for Allah?”
“Give it a shot,” I say to them. I mean living for Allah. “You might like it.”
“The most blessed month of Ramadan is designed to completely reshape human life and character. During the blessed month of Ramadan, our habits of eating, drinking, sleeping, conjugal intimacy, all undergo profound transformation.
After day-long deprivation of food, drink and sex, Ramadan imposes upon ...
I don't get it. I just don't.
I don't get the fact that Muslims don't seem to get it.
And I don't get the fact that the Non-Muslims and the world don't seem to get it.
They all seem to have some vague ...
