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?)
If you ask me, it is nothing but an honor and a blessing to be guided by Allah to Work for Him.
True, if Allah did not call you, and guide you, you will not be Working for Him. You will be doing a million other things. God only knows what.
As people get older and less able, they still have to continue doing what they can, while they can, in trying to take Islam to as many people as possible.
That is what we mean when we say: Taking the Qur’an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It -- and Which One Does Not.
Everything else in creation works for Allah. 24-7. So why shouldn’t we fall in line?
The Messengers of Allah, Alaihimus Salam, faced many tests in the course of doing their job of inviting people to Allah. Why do we feel that we would not be tested, although our tests will only be very small in comparison?
As for the people you try to invite to Allah, they are always going to react in all kinds of different ways to your call. But that is the nature of this work.
Our job then is only to convey the message and Allah determines the results.
Even though, to tell you the truth, he determines the means and the methods too.
Wa Maa Alaika Illal Balaagh, says Allah in the Qur’an.
What choice do we have after we have been guided by Allah other than to serve him?
And Work for Him?
May Allah keep all of us on course, Working for him, for as long as we live!

Working for Allah is strange business. To say the least, it is a one-way traffic.

Muslims are God’s people on earth. And there are expectations that are associated with that exalted position.
Expectations that humanity has from Muslims.
Expectations that all of Allah’s creation has from Muslims.

"Islam is simple, clear, uncomplicated. People, both Muslims and non-Muslims, make it sound hard, confusing and complicated.
Islam is from God and Islam is all good.

That is what we call "Working for Allah." It is nothing more or less than what some others may call "Islamic Work."
One of the most important elements of this work is its Integrity: Integrity of the Work and the Personal ...
Those of us who are in any form or shape affiliated with this work that we have been calling Working for Allah are standing at a crossroad. Each and everyone of us must, therefore, stand before their God -- Rabbus Samaawaati ...

Only Muslims Can Defeat Muslims?
Dr. Pasha has repeatedly pointed out how only Muslims can defeat Muslims. That seems to be the Muslim story -- forever.
Use that model to interpret the events in the world today -- or at any ...
A Thought about Muslims
Muslims are indeed quite a people and they always seem to want to do their own thing -- never mind what Islam really is and never mind what's happening to the world.
Muslims may certainly be psychologically ...

A) Those who get things done.B) Those who talk about getting things done.
The first kind: Doers.

While Islam cares about all ...
