Have you ever heard of something the world calls “Transparency“? This is the mother and grand-daddy of all transparencies.

Here is that full passage from Surah Tawubah:

Wa Quli’amaloo Fa-Sa-Yarallahu Amalakum wa Rasuluhu wal-Muminoon (9:105).

Paraphrase, once again:

“And say:Work!
For, Allah shall soon see and inspect your work.
And so shall Allah’s Rasul, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
As shall also the Believers!”

First thing: Work, for, you must, as you were created exclusively for that purpose: to work for Allah.

Next thing: When you work, you will be on the radar -- on candid camera if you will -- of all of them:

First, Allah;
Then, Rasulullah, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam;
And, after that, the Muslims.

So, people do you get it?

If Only Muslims Cared!

If Muslims truly cared -- or understood -- the world will not be the kind of mess it is.

They would have devoted themselves to fixing the world -- and making it a better place for all -- instead of trying to make their own fortunes, and improve their own lives, in places like Europe and America.

And the less said about the so-called “Middle East,” the better! (Dr. Pasha)

Socking It To The American People

People generally sock it to the American People in two very important ways.

First, they feed the American People all kinds of poison in the name of food and drink.

And then, second, they send the American People to the poorhouse by claiming to provide the treatment for the host of diseases and ailments that this lifelong poisoning creates. (Dr. Pasha)

A True Islamic Calculus for Human Life on Earth

To all those who have been associated with me in this thing we call Working for Allah, for all these years, I have always maintained the following:

1. Don’t forget that your first consideration should be your personal safety and physical wellbeing -- along with your family’s and dependents’.

And in fact your entire society’s and the whole world’s.

For, you are the keeper of not only your own personal interests but also of the best interests of all of human family and the whole world.

2. Second on the list should be your own economic wellbeing and prosperity, which of course automatically means your family’s and dependents’.

And in fact your entire society’s and the whole world’s.

How in the world do you think you will ever fulfil God’s Commandment of Wa Aatuz-Zakaata, when you can’t even eke out a decent living for yourself and your dependents?

And when the social, cultural and economic life and wellbeing of your community and society and the whole world is in a perpetual slide downhill, right in front of your eyes?

3. Then, when you have attended to all this, you can say comes the turn of what you so casually call “Islam,” by which you usually mean “Leave It To God, It Is Not My Business Anyway!”

Or alternatively, “Me and My Rituals.” Whatever that means!

4. Or you can call the whole package Islam and marvel at how God Almighty made your own health, wealth and wellbeing -- and your family’s and society’s and the entire world’s health, wealth and wellbeing -- not only a part but the very core of your Deen.

That is right: Deen! What so many of you so foolishly and stubbornly -- following the rest of a very misguided and misinformed world -- have been calling your “Religion.”

The world may have a Religion. In fact, it has many. Much of which it made up all by itself.

But you don’t have a “Religion.” You have a Deen. Given to you by God Almighty himself.

And Islam is, and has always been, as you know or should have known, free from the false and malicious charge -- or blemish -- of being a “Religion.

If this does not prove to you that Islam is from God -- and the Qur’an is from God -- nothing ever will.

And, also, by the way, go and check how often God Almighty, in the Qur’an, couples the commandment to give the Zakat with the commandment to establish Salat!

Then you will begin to understand what Islam is really all about. (Dr. Pasha)

Round the clock, Around the Globe: God’s Sustainability Warranty for Planet Earth!

Round the clock, around the globe – that is God’s Sustainability Warranty for Planet Earth.

Most reasonable people don’t question the fact that our world is a mess.

That is what Global Warming perhaps is.

And that is also what people mean by things like environmental degradation: can’t safely breathe the air we need to live; can’t drink the water without serious health consequences; can’t even live wherever we choose on God’s own earth without wondering what kind and level of toxicity is oozing from where.

And maybe that is what sustainability is all about.

Many of these things are of our own making.

Bima Kasabat Ayidin Naas, says the Qur’an.

So, much of it we will have to fix ourselves. Otherwise, we will perish – sooner than we think.

But here is a divine formula that has been put in place by God Almighty, himself, to protect us and our habitat, the earth, and fill it with enough blessings – “sustainability” if you will – to carry it through for the rest of its natural life.

And that formula is contained in Muslims chanting round the clock and around the globe the following Divine Expressions of Subhaanallah, Alhamdulillah, Bismillah, Laa Ilaaha Illallah and Muhammad Rasulullah!

This is God’s own Sustainability Warranty for Planet Earth – an abode that God made for us to live on and to enjoy.

As God Almighty said in the Qur’an:

Wa Lakum Fil Ardi Mustaqarrun wa Mattaa’un Ilaa Heen.
