How Clear Does It Have To Be?
It really hit me hard, and not too long ago, how clear it is. The obvious and simple fact that this world does not have anything like Laa Ilaaha Illallaah or Muhammadur Rasoolullah.
Not separately. Not both of them taken together in the form of the Kalimah:
Laa Ilaaha Illallaah, Muhammadur Rasoolullah!
What more proof does the world want, or do the Muslims want, for the fact that this Deen is directly from Allah Almighty. And that there is no way on earth or in heaven this could have been a human creation.
If it were, would’t there be more of things like this around? And wouldn’t everybody be flaunting their ware and bragging about it?
Muslims, think! Come out of your stupor and ignorance and think!
Non-Muslims, think! Put away your prejudices and fears and think!
For, your creator wants you all to think. And think freely -- and without holds.
Don’t be slow like me on the uptake, as they used to say in England, that it took me so long to see this blazing glory of light right in front of my eyes.
Allah All the Way!
Who will get our literature; who will read it; who will react how to what they read…All these things are decided -- and yes, decided way when, before all or any of us were born -- by Allah.
And by no one else.
Those who have a problem with any of this, my respectful suggestion to them is: Take It Up with Allah!
Slavery vs. Freedom
Slaves submissively take whatever is given to them by their masters -- and stay quiet.
Slaves have no rights.
Free people, on the other hand, stand up for their rights; demand their rights; and fight for their rights.
Free people have rights.
Islam came into this world to give people -- all people -- rights and set them free!
QUR’AN IS WHERE THE ACTION IS!
When we invite people to join us, in what we call Working for Allah, in the West and around the world, this is why: Our work is forever. And it is from the Qur’an.
For, that is where the action is: the Qur’an!
Our work is not “Community-based.“And it is not “Public Opinion-based.“
Not because Community and Public Opinion are not important, but because Islam is even more important, as Islam both subsumes and transcends Community and Public Opinion.
That is because Islam is truth and it is reality based.
At the same time, Islam is rooted firmly in the Qur’an, just as Islam is also continually tested against the inevitable human and situational constraints that determine who we are and what we do in every age and place.
That is why our work so far has stood, Alhamdulillah, and it will forever, Inshallah, stand what is called the test of time.
For, that is the nature of Islam: It is above time and beyond space.
Tonight’s Pasha Hour International Live from America!
Will I, Won’t I? Who Decides and How?
My circumstances being what they are; the world of Allah being what it is; God Almighty being who he is; and given the way he does things; I am hoping he will allow, bless and enable me to do Pasha Hour International Live from America! live tonight: Friday, April 24, 2015.
If he does, it is his grace, bounty and blessing, and I will be able to go live on the air tonight with tonight’s special episode of Pasha Hour International Live from America! An episode in which I hope to be blessed to talk about Surah Al-Fatihah, which continues to unravel and reveal its mysteries -- ever so self-evident to the eyes that see, as the Qur’an puts it -- every moment, as and when Allah decides, in the most spectacular fashion.
If, on the other hand, he decides otherwise, then I will not be able to do Pasha Hour International Live from America! live tonight, no matter how I try. And we will have to use a tape instead.
I am grateful to God Almighty, no matter what his final decision -- which, of course, is also his initial, eternal decision, even though he keeps what he wants and changes what he wants, which, of course, is his absolute and unquestionable right.
Yamhullahu Maa Yashaa-u Wa Yuthbit Wa ‘Indahu Ummul Kitaab!
If people understand this simple, and yet most complex and profound, dynamic, they will know how the universe works and how things happen in this world -- and why.
Placing a Translation-Only Copy of the Qur’an in the Hands of Every Non-Muslim Everywhere:
What Excuse Do Muslims Have for Not Doing It?
Qur’an is of course in Arabic. And now there are also translations in many languages. Thank God for that: Alhamdulillah!
But what I have trouble figuring out is this: What is the excuse Muslims have for not placing a Translation-Only Copy of the Qur’an in the hands of every non-Muslim everywhere? And by that I mean, for example, Tamil in South India; Mandarin in China; Russian in, where else, Russia; Spanish everywhere; and, of course, English in every part of the world?
Muslims do so many things, and Muslims spend $billions on so many projects. So what is the excuse Muslims have for not doing this: for placing a Translation-Only Copy of the Qur’an in the hands of every non-Muslim in every part, region and country of the world?
Or maybe Muslims do all these things -- on the quiet maybe -- and I just don’t know about it!
Or maybe the Muslims do it in a nice, relaxed, leisurely sort of way and I am just being a bit impatient -- rushing it as it were.
