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?)
“Muslims are smart. They have good business sense. And they can always negotiate a deal – with God.
God says in the Qur’an he sent his Messengers (Alaihim Assalam) so people will obey and follow them. Muslims say: “Sure, we will follow Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam. We will eat like him; we will drink like him; we will dress, and pray, and fast like him,” they say.
And they say: “But if he did anything else, beyond that, then he is on his own – pretty much. Too bad it had to be Camels and not Cadillacs in those days. Frankly, don’t get me wrong, a Cadillac makes more sense in today’s world than a Camel.”
But then supposing someone says to them: “Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, spent all his waking hours, and all his energies, and all his resources, inviting people to God. He knocked at every door; he went to every fete and fair; he attended every meeting and gathering of people; and he got people to assemble wherever and whenever he could. All for one single purpose: to invite them to come to God—and of course to follow him. Shouldn’t that, then, be the focus of everything Muslims do?”
I am still awaiting the Muslim response.” (Dr. Pasha)

“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.
