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 have not the slightest doubt in my mind that God Almighty will bring people to our work – Insha-Allah.
That is, if that happens to be his wish and his will. And if that is what he wants to do.
Should God Almighty, then, want to do that, people – Muslim and non-Muslim, men as well as women and children – will flock to our work in droves.
By that I mean our products on www.IslamicSolutions.com and elsewhere. Both in print format and in the form of audio recordings such as, for example, Pasha Hour International –Live from America!
And all the books and publications and tapes our people have put out.
My most fervent prayer to him, then, on bended knees, is that, first and foremost, he should grant acceptance to what he has guided me to write and speak. Once that prayer is granted, there is nothing more to wish or ask for.
But then God Almighty himself tells us never to stop asking him and never to stop begging him for more.
He is Wahhaab, he says in the Qur’an, which means: The One Who Just Loves to Give.
What an indomitable soul that poor battered orphan, Oliver Twist, must have owned, in that Charles Dickens novel by that same name, that made him demand – or beg – of his abusers and tormentors: “PleaseSir, May I Have Some More?“
So, my second prayer, equally fervent, and equally true, will be that God Almighty accept whatever we write, print, publish, tape, record – and post – from all thoseon our team of helpers and support network who toil so mightily and so selflessly, and so tirelessly, to make these things happen.
And then my third prayer will be for God Almighty to open the hearts and minds of People – Muslim and non-Muslim, men as well as women and children – and bring them to our work in staggering numbers, waves upon waves upon waves of them.
As he says in the Qur’an:
Wa Ra-Aitan-Naasa Yadkhuloona Fee Deenillahi Afwaaja!
And make our work a pathway and a conduit for People to find God, and to connect with his Guidance and Blessings, in the Qur’an, and in the life and teachings of his Most Blessed and Beloved Prophet, Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
And I have not the slightest doubt that he will do so – should that be his wish; and his will; and his plan to do so. And may he make it so!

For, that is the nature of the sun and the clouds.

“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.
