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 very good way of serving God Almighty in Heaven, who needs nothing from us, and whom we cannot even see, is to serve God’s creation -- His Khalq -- who need everything, and whom we see and encounter every moment of our life in varying situations of need and even desperation.
Of course, this has to be done proceeding from the purest of motives and intentions, which means seeking nothing but the pleasure of Almighty Allah, and using the purest and most wonderful of methods and techniques as shown by God Almighty’s last and final prophet and messenger, Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
That is how, as Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, told us, in ancient times, a woman of questionable ways earned a place in Paradise by giving water to a dying dog and saving his life in the middle of a burning desert.
After all, some of the ways of your Lord God, Almighty Allah, are not all that mysterious, are they?
"Good people must try not only to love God in Heaven, they must also love human beings -- and all of God's creation -- on earth and seek to serve them the best way they know how.
That is Islam!" (Dr. Pasha)
