Question - What makes you more excited?




QUESTION - WHAT MAKES YOU MORE EXCITED?

What makes you more excited? Is it the high chance of removal of a corrupt Pakistani ruler and his mafia OR the chance of your favourite politician and his party being elected as rulers of Pakistan thus ushering in a new era of progress, prosperity and peace (which we dream of)?
If the second reason makes you more excited, then are you sure things will turn out the way you expect? Whole Pakistan campaigned against Musharraff too in 2007 but then we were gifted with Asif Zardari in 2008 as the new ruler? So is there something we are lacking as a nation and which we need to pay attention to on foremost basis?

Looking forward to your precious views.

Against True Islam

AGAINST TRUE ISLAM

Fazl-ur-Rehman is not an Aalim or religious scholar. His father Mufti Mehmud was a religious scholar but since he joined politics he lost his credibility. His son also has no credibility as a religious scholar. True religious scholars are never eager to gain power or enter politics (though it cannot be said that they should be barred from entering politics). They just act as spiritual guides or mentors for other people.
At least, we are clear that we can easily do without people like Fazl-ur-Rehman who are destroying the image of Islam in Pakistan with their games in political arena.

(Film) - The Colour of Money


THE COLOUR OF MONEY

For these shameless Pakistani actors, the COLOUR OF MONEY is most important and they don't really care about the atrocities committed against Kashmiris by Indians when we are raising slogans to boycott Bollywood...!!!!

(Urdu) - General Zia, an exemplary diplomat



جنرل ضیاء بے مثل سفارت کار ۔۔۔۔۔ !

جنرل ضیاء کو پاکستان کی تاریخ کا بہترین سفارت کار کہا جائے تو غلط نہ ہوگا۔ اسکی سفارتی صلاحیتوں کے حوالے سے چند دلچسپ واقعات پیش خدمت ہیں!

" جنرل ضیاء امریکہ کے دورے پر تھے جہاں انہوں نے پورے ملت اسلامیہ کے نمائندے کے طور پر اقوام متحدہ سے خطاب کرنا تھا ۔ امریکہ میں دو ماہ بعد الیکشن ہونے والے تھے ۔ جنرل ضیاءالحق اور امریکی صدر جمی کارٹر کی ملاقات ہوئی جس میں جمی کارٹر نے شکائتاً کہا کہ ۔۔۔
" جناب صدر آپ نے ہماری 400 ملین ڈالر کی امداد سرسری انداز میں اور فی الفور مسترد کردی " ۔۔ جواباً جنرل ضیاء نے کہا کہ " جناب صدر ان معاملات پر بات اب 4 نومبر کے بعد ہی مناسب ہوگی "۔۔۔

آغا شاہی کے بقول صدر ضیاء کا یہ جملہ سن کر ہمارے پاؤں تلے زمین نکل گئی ۔ اور جمی کارٹر کے چہرے پر خجالت نظر آنے لگی ۔ پاکستان کا غیر منتخب صدر ریاست ہائے متحدہ امریکہ کے منتخب صدر سے کہہ رہا تھا کہ " تم الیکشن جیت کر آؤ پھر بات کرنا۔ " ۔۔

جنرل کے اس جملے پر سفارتی حلقوں میں زبردست تبصرے ہوئے اور لوگوں نے کہا کہ " جنرل امریکہ کے مقابلے میں کسی احساس کمتری کا شکار نہیں۔۔۔"

٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭٭

82ء میں جنرل ضیاء ایک کانفرنس میں شرکت کرنے انڈیا پہنچے ۔ اس کانفرس میں دنیا کے 80 ممالک کے سربراہان شریک تھے ۔ صدارت اندرا گاندھی کر رہی تھیں ۔ جنرل ضیاء نے اندرا گاندھی کی ناراضگی کی پرواہ کیے بغیر اپنی تقریر میں کہا کہ " مسئلہ کشمیر کو اقوام متحدہ کی قراردادوں اور شملہ معاہدے کے مطابق حل کرنا چاہئے ۔" ۔۔ جنرل کی یہ بات سن کر اندرا گاندھی اپنی صدارت کی نشست سے اٹھ کر چلی گئیں اور اپنی جگہ یاسر عرفات کو بیٹھا دیا۔

دوسرے دن پورے انڈین پریس کی 8 کالمی سرخی تھی کہ " صدر ضیاء نے کانفرنس میں مسئلہ کشمیر اٹھا دیا " ۔۔ کچھ نے لکھا کہ " دھماکہ کر دیا " کسی نے لکھا " بہت زیادتی کی " ۔۔ تین دن تک انڈین اخبارات ضیاء کے خلاف اور کشمیر کے حوالے سے سرخیوں اور اداریوں سے بھرے رہے ۔

تیسرے روز کانفرنس کے تشہیر کے شعبہ کے انچارج ایڈیشنل سیکٹری خارجہ مانی شنکر آئر نے بھارتی اخبارات کے اڈیٹروں کو بلایا اور کہا کہ " پلیز آپ لوگ جنرل ضیاء کا تذکرہ کرنا بند کر دیں ۔ آپ سارے جنرل صاحب کی مرضی کے مطابق ردعمل دے رہے ہیں جو وہ چاہتے ہیں اور دنیا کے 80 ممالک کے سربراہان کے سامنے مسئلہ کشمیر اور پاکستانی موقف کی تشہیر ہو رہی ہے ۔ آپکی اس تشہیر کے نتیجے میں انڈیا اور کانفرنس کی سربراہ اندرا گاندھی کہیں پیچھے رہ گئیں ہیں۔"

80ء میں زمباوے کے جشن آزادی کے موقع جنرل ضیاء اور انڈین وزیراعظم اندرا گاندھی سمیت دنیا کے کئی ممالک کے سربراہ جشن میں شرکت کرنے زمباوے پہنچے ۔

اندراگاندھی اور جنرل ضیاء ایک ہی ہوٹل میں ٹہرائے گئے ۔ اندرگاندھی 13ویں فلور پر تھیں جبکہ جنرل ضیاء 11ویں فلور پر تھے ۔ جنرل ضیاء نے فوری طور پر اندرا گاندھی کو فون کر دیا اور باہمی تعلقات معمول پرلانے کے لیے بات چیت کی خواہش ظاہر کی ۔ اندرا گاندھی کے لیے انکار ممکن نہیں تھا ورنہ کئی ممالک کے سربراہوں کی موجودگی میں انڈیا پر الزام لگتا کہ وہ کشیدگی برقرار رکھنا چاہتا ہے ۔

اندراگاندھی اپنے فلور پر ملاقات کا انتظام کرنے لگیں تو جنرل ضیاء نے دوبارہ فون کیا اور کہا کہ " مادام آپ نیچے آنا پسند کرینگی یا میں آؤں ؟ " ۔۔

تب اندراگاندھی نے بادل نخواستہ نیچے آنے کی حامی بھری اور کہا کہ " اپ صدر ہیں اور پروٹوکول کےلحاظ سے آپکا کا درجہ بڑا ہے اسلئے میں نیچے آجاتی ہوں " ۔۔

بظاہر اس چھوٹی سی سفارتی مات پر ایک انڈین صحافی نے لکھا کہ ۔۔ " مجیب ، یحیی خان اور بھٹو کو اپنی انگلیوں پر نچانے والی اندرا گاندھی کا پالا ضیاء جیسے زیرک ، چالاک اور شاطر شخص سے پڑا ہے ۔ ضیاء کی مثال شارک کا شکار کرنے والے شکاری کی سی ہے ۔ جو شارک کی تمام تر طاقت اور مستی کے باوجود نہایت تحمل اور برباری سے بالاآخر اسکا شکار کر لیتا ہے ۔"۔۔

(Politics) - Love and Affection


LOVE AND AFFECTION

Just look at the love and affection on the faces of the two. So all that love and affection is lost now only because he is no more alive and no more a President? Of course, it is usual custom to show love and affection for the then President of the country and to not curse him on the face otherwise one would lose some worldly benefits, is that so?

Big shame on those who are always blaming late General Zia for honouring and supporting Nawaz Sharif, and making late General Zia responsible for launching the career of a corrupt leader. General Zia also honoured and supported many other individuals during his era but the wolves of Satan are always quick to highlight certain elements in order to defame a warrior of Islam who endeavored to strengthen the institutions of Islam (though he was not perfect and made some mistakes as well since nobody's perfect - Neither you, nor I).

Shopping for nephew and niece


SHOPPING FOR NEPHEW & NIECE


Last Friday (day before yesterday), I decided to go to Variety Books in Liberty Market, Lahore after a long time. Basically, I wanted to purchase some nice books for my niece and nephew (brother's kids) who were visiting us along with their parents from Dubai. They did Eid with us and my elder sister also came here along with her family from Rawalpindi.

When I reached Variety Books, the shutters were down even though time was just 4 pm. The guard said that the store was closed down due to death in a family. It was a bad stroke of luck as the guests were leaving next day. I had no choice but to go to an other book store Iqbal Book Corner but it did not have the kind of books I was looking for. My niece is an aspiring painter and I wanted to give her a book of landscapes and natural scenery.

The Islamic book center was near the Arts section and I couldn't resist going there. A nice book on Data Sahib caught my eye there (with accounts by various writers over centuries on Data Sahib) and I bought it along with 15 pocket-sized books on Supplications by Rasool Allah (s.a.w.w.) "Piyaaray Rusool s.a.w.w. key piyari duain) costing 20 Rs. per copy. I already have this book with me since many years but wanted to buy more to present it to others.

So this was the shopping I did that day when in fact I went out to look for some art books. However, after returning, I did give a copy of duain each to my brother, sister-in-law, nephew and niece.

Entertainment in Islam?


Entertainment in Islam?

What is allowed for entertainment in Islam? This is an important topic but not really touched by Islamtic scholars. Due to do's and don'ts of Islam as narrated by scholars, many people have the wrong impression that entertainment and fun are not allowed in Islam and hence they are turned away from this beautiful religion. Thus we need to explore this topic in detail. Any suggestions or ideas?

The Last Encounter - Prophet Jesus (pbuh) Vs. Dajjal




- The Last Encounter -

Prophet Isa / Jesus (pbuh) Vs. Anti-Christ (Dajjal) 

SHORT LINK: http://bit.ly/2t3O8CN

(Pls check Urdu image below followed by 'dua' for protection - both attached also)

Have you seen Hollywood Movies like "The Terminator", "The Matrix" and "The Lord of the Rings" (based on a epic high-fantasy novel written in stages between 1937 and 1949) etc.? They all carried a special theme. 

A certain level of strength and character was required to terminate the evil. A good guy with earthly qualities pitched against an evil force with powerful and sinister strength. In the end, the good forces triumph over the evil forces but with great difficulties and trials. We never know if the themes of these movies are taken from ancient scriptures including even Hadith literature. Especially, some of the sequences in the movie "The Lord of the rings" are in great contrast with the End times Islamic prophecies including "The Eye" (One-eye of Dajjal), "The Return of the King" (The return or descent of Prophet Jesus pbuh to kill Dajjal and then to rule the world for 40 years) and the struggle in general. 

If you read the Urdu text below, you will understand that the greatest of showdowns has to happen in real life in this world. Don't delude yourself and prepare well. Preparation should not be the way as shown in movies but according to our roots and heritage as a Muslim with a strong concern for afterlife. A word of caution that our desperate pursuits of liberalism and progressiveness might be depriving us of true faith in these times of free electronic-media, Internet and social media. 

We have to learn positive things from the advanced nations but be on guard against that which is contrary to our faith as well. Thus, we have to select the "conservative mode" and apply it to our lives as much as we can while striving to hold firmly onto True Islam in all spheres even if we can never be perfect!

Abundance leads to complacency in most cases. Generally, a Muslim blessed with worldly comforts might have little desire to turn towards Almighty Allah in the true sense. It is because the possessions and luxurious lifestyle would make him/her lazy in terms of devotion to God. He/she would be rather pursuing mainstream lifestyles, interests and hobbies that would make him/her socially acceptable without drawing a line where needed. 

That is why our beautiful religion Islam teaches us to lead a simple lifestyle even if we are blessed in worldly sense. A true Muslim in these times would have to sacrifice a few or many things to gain pleasure of Allah. There is a price for everything in this world so how could one assume to achieve true faith without paying any price? 

Wherever we live or wherever we study or work, we need to keep our hearts alive with the message of Almighty Allah. Only then we can hope for salvation in the hereafter (there are exceptions when big sinners could be forgiven by God on Judgement Day - but that is only for Him to decide and we cannot take chances with afterlife which will last forever and forever)!!

DUA FOR PROTECTION AGAINST FITNA-E-DAJJAL


For protection against Anti-Christ (Dajjal) - Recite this dua before "Rabbijalni...." in every prayer (Salah) in Tashshud - Then we should recite Surah Al-Kahf also without fail on every Jumm'ah (after Maghrib Thursday and before Maghrib Friday) and also memorize first 10 Verses of Surah Al-Kahf (at other places it is written about the last 10 verses of same Surah, so some Muslims memorize the first 10 as well as the last 10 verses)

Truth - Where Art Thou?



TRUTH - WHERE ART THOU?


TRUTH - WHERE ART THOU?


Truth is not being told by our media (especially THE EXPRESS TRIBUNE and DAWN with THE NATION joining the club also). I hope you don't buy their stories. After 9/11, things have changed and global media propaganda against Islam and Pakistan has increased.

DAWN of today is not the same DAWN founded by Mr. Jinnah.

When I say "don't buy their stories" in relation to news by THE EXPRESS TRIBUNE and DAWN, I hope the youngsters don't think I am forbidding them to buy these newspapers or to read them online .

"Don't buy" is an expression which also means "don't believe". Otherwise I myself read these newspapers on and off basis and the other information apart from themes of Islam and Patriotism are not bad, rather these newspapers have great presentation. We just need to be watchful though about the ideological issues related to Islam and Pakistan.

Parachinar Attack - Message for Shias



PARACHINAR ATTACK - A MESSAGE FOR SHIAS


Iran's Spiritual leader has called for Muslims around the world to support Kashmiris against 'oppressors and tyrants'.

Last week there was an attack on Shias in Parachinar in which scores of persons were killed and wounded. Let's study things in a different perspective. More than 100,000 Pakistanis have faced death or wounds in RAW-backed terror, only 5% of them were Shias. Attack in Parachinar is not Shia genocide but terrorism against Pakistanis. Shias in Pakistan should understand this and stand by Pakistan Army. Only Pakistan Army can help us, neither India nor Iran.Only Pakistan Army is the protector of both Sunnis and Shias in Pakistan.

Both TTP and LeJ (Lashkar-e-Jhangvi) have been created by India's RAW. Shias in Pakistan should not consider Pakistani Sunnis as their enemies (even if there are some ideological differences) and they should trust and have faith in Pakistan Army. The common enemy of all Pakistanis is India. Even Iran is somewhat involved as per Kulbhushan Yadav's confessions.

Pakistan's security & survival depends on sectarian unity. Yadav stated that his prime duty was to trigger sectarian wars in Pakistan.

Wake up Shias of Pakistan.

Letter from Ottoman Sultan to Timur, 1402


Letter from Ottoman Sultan Beyazid I to Timur, 1402:

"To fight is our habit, to join in combat our aim, to struggle for our faith is our task. The law of waging war for the cause of Allah is our rule. Our soldiers spend their lives and wealth for Allah, so that they may gain paradise."

Achieving Spirituality - رُوحانیت


عبادت کے ساتھ دل کینہ، تکبر اور حسد سے پاک ہو اور خلقِ خدا کی خدمت کا بھی جذبہ ہو، ، تب رُوحانیت نصیب ہوتی ہے
Along with worship, if the heart is free of hatred, pride and jealousy, and there is the desire to serve humanity, only then one can achieve spirituality.

Those In Pakistan Who Hate Late General Zia


THOSE IN PAKISTAN WHO HATE LATE GENERAL ZIA: 

Those in Pakistan who hate late General Zia are either haters of Islam OR very liberal who don't really want to live by True Islam's limits OR blind lovers of democracy OR those fooled with the propaganda by media which started right after when Benazir Bhutto became Prime Minister in November 1988.

Some Pakistanis living abroad blame General Zia for their going out of country. Well, they should understand that if they fall in either of the categories above, then it is their fault if they opposed General Zia Shaheed for taking steps and measures in favour of Islam though he made some mistakes also (as nobody's perfect). May ALLAH grant him high place in Jannah - Aameen.

Nawaz announces Rs.1 crore prize for cricketers


He is just trying to show that he is loyal to Pakistan and not India. Obviously Nawaz Sharif does not know what is right and what is wrong. Its nation's money, how could he spend it in such careless manner. Just like his laptop scheme. (P.S. - I still don't like Imran Khan though).

Jobs and Salah

Different Worlds Next


DIFFERENT WORLDS NEXT 

Every now and then, why do we hear about the need to go back in history to mend everything? Sir, this world has to close down when its 'tenure' is over. We have to look forward to different worlds next. Did you read about 80,000 boys like scattered pearls who will at the service of one dweller of paradise? No work there, only entertainment. No suicide attacks there either and no one to snub us. And no ill feeling or negativity between any two individuals there.

The privilege of sighting the immense beauty of God (Almighty Allah) after intervals which will leave all the dwellers of paradise mesmerized. No excretion, just fragrant perspiration or a small 'burp' after which one will be ready to consume food or drink again. Forgetting KFC and McDonald's will be easy when there is endless variety of foods there. Every day, there will be an increase in the rewards by the Almighty. No worship acts there, not even a single prostration (sajda). Worshipping and living by Islam is only for this world to win the entry ticket for paradise. May we be eligible for it and escape the torment of the other world, hell - Aameen,

Lailat-ul-Qadr (The Night of Decree)



LAILAT-UL-QADR - THE NIGHT OF DECREE

21 Ramadan tonight - We should search for the NIGHT OF DECREE (Laila tul Qadr) in the odd nights of last ten days of Ramadan - So let's close down Facebook, mobile and TV - and spend some time before sehr in worship - We can recite durood shareef (100 times or as much as we can), offer Nawaafil and recite Surah Yaseen (or recite Qur'an) - Surah Yaseen when recited is equivalent to reciting Qur'an 10 times it should be remembered. One can also offer SALAATUL TASBEEH if one wishes. At the end, make dua for yourself (for this world and hereafter), Pakistan, entire Muslim world, entire world, your relatives, for Muslim countries where there is invasion by their enemies and also for anyone near you who is suffering. May ALLAH listen to us this Ramadan and grant all of us His closeness - Aameen Sum Aameen.

Huq Chaar Yaar












Difference between Eastern and Western Thought


DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EASTERN AND WESTERN THOUGHT

There are many differences between Eastern and Western thought-process and beliefs. For example, in the West, many times they don't hesitate to show a picture of Adam (Hazrat Adam a.s.) and Eve (Hazrat Hawwa a,s,) without clothes (Astaghfirullah) in heaven. Muslims not only consider it high blasphemy but as per Islam we are against drawing any portrait of Holy figures even if it's just a face. And here lies the reason why Muslims with too much Westernized minds and devoid of Islamic concern cannot understand that blasphemy against our dear Prophet (pbuh) is a big sin and crime (though we still need to handle the cases against offenders with extra care and vigilance lest innocent people are punished or a mob carries out mass offense).

17 Ramadan - The Day of Badr


17 Ramadan — Victory of Truth against Falsehood.
The day of Victory of Islam.

The Day of Badr...

"Does it not suffice you that your Creator should help you with three thousand angels sent down."
(Surah al-e-Imran, 3:123-124)

The forces of truth and falsehood faced each other for the first time in the Valley of Badr. The number of the army of truth did not exceed 313 whereas the army of falsehood was three times as big as that. The Muslims were not properly equipped. Their means of transport consisted of about seventy camels and a few horses, while the enemy had come with full strength to knock down Islam, consisting of 1000 strong men with 700 camels and 100 horses. In spite of all this, however, truth was victorious and the enemy returned to Makkah after having sustained heavy losses.
