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?)
Human life is all about technology. And so is Islam.
It is all about learning to do what we do better -- and pressing into service the best tools for each task at hand.
But the difference in each situation, and on each occasion, is not Technology but Islam.
What won Badr, in the early stages of Islam, for a rag-tag band of 313 poorly armed and inadequately equipped Believers, against a formidable armed-to-the-teeth foe 1000 strong was not their Tech-Savvy and superior weaponry, but their Islam-Savvy and their superior commitment to Work for Allah.
And to sacrifice everything in their power and possession for that purpose, and for that cause.
Today, the story with our own IslamicSolutions.Com is no different. What we need, more than anything else, is Islam-Savvy and, maybe, just maybe, not so much Tech-Savvy.
And you get Islam-Savvy when Allah decides to give it to you. But one worldly sign of Allah’s decision in Heaven is you moving heaven and earth, right here on earth, to work hard, and day and night, to acquire that Islam-Savvy.
When you put that goal before all else in your life, and Allah crowns your effort with his approval, then you acquire Islam-Savvy.
"Two kinds of people live on God's earth – among all the millions of other kinds that there are:
A) Those who get things done.B) Those who talk about getting things done.
The first kind: Doers.
The second kind: Talkers.
