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?)
“So many people say so many foolish, wicked and baseless things about Islam and Muslims.
Poor Muslims, most of them have neither the sophistication to know what is going on.
Nor do they possess the skills to address what is going on in any meaningful way and respond to it effectively.
If truth be told, as it always must be, here is a key element that goes, as it should, into shaping what you might call the Islamic character: Every Muslim must perpetually seek the wellbeing of this world and all its occupants – from human to non-human; and from Muslim to non-Muslim.
How much clearer can anyone make it?
Listen to this Hadith of Sayyidina (our leader and our master) Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, and you will know:
Addeenu annaseehah, said the Prophet, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
And in paraphrase it means: Deen (this Islamic faith business, if you will) is to work tirelessly, and forever, to enhance the wellbeing of others.
Now is it fair to ask: Who’s got what to match or trump it?” (Dr. Pasha)
Our goals are – in the words of Dr. Pasha – to help the Muslim and non-Muslim communities in and around Oldham, and throughout the world:

Islam – A Deen, ...
People do in life what they want to do. They achieve what they want and set out to achieve.
And all this is as fair as it could be.

“I am not saying Muslims should not be “nice.”
And I am not saying civility is not a virtue.
In fact Islam is all about being “nice” and kind and merciful and saying and doing “nice” things as much as you can.
