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?)
I am going to say something, I don’t know how many people will get it right.
It is a very delicate thing. But say it I must. For, clarity of thinking is the key to Islam.
And we undertook our work at IslamicSolutions.Com, as well as at Pasha Hour International, I don’t know how many years ago, keeping in mind a very simple goal: To make some very, very simple, basic and elementary things clear.
So, proceeding from that point, we must continue to provide what we believe to be the proper perspective on what people call “Islam” in relation to what is generally considered “life.”
So, from this point of view, the “distractions” that Shaitan causes in “life” -- yes, blame everything on Shaitan -- are more serious, urgent and dangerous than the “distractions” that Shaitan causes during Salaat or Namaz.
It is failure to understand this basic and simple truth about Islam and life that has made many Muslims what they are -- and made our world what it is today.
For, as the Muslims are, so the world of Allah will be.
So, Muslims, fix your life, your Salaat will fix itself.
So long as you are living with us, in this world, on this planet, enjoying what is called a good and normal “life.”

Being Muslim is no license to abuse the English language.
I am not an English teacher. Nor am I an expert on the English language. But I suppose I have enough sense of the English language to be able to tell ...
First of all, the word is "converts," not "reverts."
Converts is simple English -- queen's or every English speaker's.
Reverts is mumbo-jumbo and part of new English-speaking Muslim contortionism.
American converts over the past four decades have done their bit, and I will ...

By "people" here I mean all of the following groups and individuals:

It is amazing how Muslims continue to play the games they do. But why is that a surprise?
That is how people are. And Muslims are nothing if not people.
Even though, in many instances, there may be more to the Games ...
All over the world, Muslims know what Salaat is. Urdu and Farsi folks call it Namaaz. English speakers call it “prayers”. But, Salaat is more – much, much more – than prayer as the world understands and uses that expression.
There are many Non-Muslims who clearly understand how those dictators in Muslim lands are thieves and crooks, and how they brutalize the People and pillage and squander their wealth.
And how in many cases they are doing the bidding of their ...

“Every time Allah talks about Salaat or Prayers in the Qur’an, he almost invariably couples it with Zakaat or Charity – the economic-financial levy of two-and-a-half percent that God imposed upon well-to-do Muslims.
But every time Muslims talk about Salaat, they almost always pair ...
“When it comes to Muslims, I have often wondered which leadership is worse: leadership that is corrupt, tyrannical, authoritarian and unprincipled or leadership that is naïve and foolish and uninformed.” (Dr. Pasha)
“When I hear Muslims call their scholars “Your Eminence!” my heart, just like Wordsworth’s, leaps with joy and wants to dance with the daffodils. In sheer exuberance I whisper to myself: “Finally, dear heart! That blessed day is upon us! ...
