LISTEN TO VOICE OF GOD (VOG),

 NOT WHISPER OF DEVIL (WOD)

JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER,

Goodwill Ambassador for Pakistan-Canada Relations (PCR) of Good Governance Forum

            TORONTO:  Want to practically get and benefit from spiritual help for real success, solution of your problems and protection? Then just listen to the Voice Of God (VOG).

            What is actually the Voice Of God (VOG)? Yes, everybody knows but most of us never  care or take it seriously or deliberately ignore it. Misguided and then overpowered by the Whisper Of Devil (WOD), worldly and lustful desires and vested interests, they just shrug their shoulders, move forward and keep running away God and truth.

            This is why, despite being extremely powerful, wealthy and seemingly very successful, they always remain restless, unhappy and unsatisfied. In the quest for all these, they keep harming the people, particularly the good, innocent and helpless ones.

            They remain incomplete because of disconnection with God and truth. The charm and intoxication of worldly and lustful desires increase crave for more and makes them corrupt and cruel. Since the truth is always bitter and hard to swallow, they find it very difficult to accept and follow. But like the bitter medicine, it is the only cure.  

             The Voice Of God (VOG) is nothing else but our CONSCIENCE.  Whether we like it or not or want it or not, for 24 hours/7 days we keep hearing it and feel its prick and pain when we commit sin or crime or mistake. It is a living proof that God exists and remains with us all the time. We just need to spiritually connect with Him and He will practically connect us to the truth. It looks and seems damn hard but is so simple.

            Once plugged in, we are activated like an electronic gadget. Like a bulb, we start glowing with brightness and live with real happiness, contentment, satisfaction and success. This world and all happenings are all examples for us to learn, know and understand as to how to change and live our lives and prepare ourselves for hereafter.

            Yes, it is so simple yet we miss the train by ignoring and avoiding God and the truth in all shapes. We always claim to like, love and worship God but unfortunately have become followers, supporters and slaves of the devil.  Are we not the ones who most of the time remain under evil influence of the devil and keep him happy? It is the question we must always keep asking ourselves and get the right answer from our conscience (Voice Of God—VOG).

            Those who deliberately go against and oppose God and truth and disturb, hurt, harm, fight and kill the good ones,  God has severely criticized and condemned them in all the original holy books, scrolls, scriptures and messages. In the Holy Quran, God says:

            Sura 16 – An-Nahl (Verse 108): Those are they whose hearts, ears, and eyes, Allah has sealed up and they take no heed. Translation: Eng-Yusuf Ali.

            Sura 30 – Al-Room (Verse 59): Thus doth Allah seal the hearts of those who know not.

Translation: Eng-Pickthal.

            Sura 41 – Fussilat (Verse 20): Till, when they reach it, their ears and their eyes and their skins testify against them as to what they used to do. Translation: Eng-Pickthal.

            Sura 9 – Al-Tawba (Verse 87: They are content that they should be with those who remain behind and their hearts are sealed, so that they apprehend not. Translation: Eng-Pickthal.

            Sura 63 – Al-Munafiqoon (Verse 3): That is because they believed, then disbelieved, therefore their hearts are sealed so that they understand not. Translation: Eng-Pickthal.

            Sura 46 – Al-Ahqaf (Verse 26): And verily We had empowered them with that wherewith We have not empowered you, and had assigned them ears and eyes and hearts; but their ears and eyes and hearts availed them naught since they denied the revelations of Allah; and what they used to mock befell them. Translation: Eng-Pickthal.

            Sura 46 – Al-Ahqaf (Verse 26): And indeed We had firmly established them with that wherewith We have not established you (O Quraish)! And We had assigned them the (faculties of) hearing (ears), seeing (eyes), and hearts, but their hearing (ears), seeing (eyes), and their hearts availed them nothing since they used to deny the Ayât (Allâh’s Prophets and their Prophethood, proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations) of Allâh, and they were completely encircled by that which they used to mock at! Translation: Eng-Dr. Mohsin.

            Sura 5 – Al-Maeda (Verse 45): And We prescribed for them therein: The life for the life, and the eye for the eye, and the nose for the nose, and the ear for the ear, and the tooth for the tooth, and for wounds retaliation. But whoso forgoeth it (in the way of charity) it shall be expiation for him. Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah hath revealed: such are wrong-doers.

Translation: Eng-Pickthal.

            Is it still difficult now to understand as to why the people are suffering and so much deaths and destruction are taking place in the name of PEACE and to make the world a safer and better place?  Is it difficult to know as to who are the real crooks, criminals, corrupts and cruel?

            Is it not crime and cruelty to exploit, cheat and harm the helpless and innocent people? But, unfortunately, this is all happening and we have become a part of it and are to be equally blamed and held responsible for crimes, corruption, cruelties, deaths and destruction.

            This is because we are mostly choosing, voting and electing wrong people who DON’T DESERVE leadership at all because they are slaves of the parties they belong to and serving their vested interests. They have least interest in the people or their problems. Even a blind, deaf and dumb person senses and understands this. Are we so stupid and worse than idiots and fools? 

            Most of the time, the rulers, policymakers, bureaucrats and leaders keep playing with the people, country, system and society and the people silently keep watching, suffering, supporting and promoting them. This is not helplessness but a SERIOUS CRIME.

            The wrong people and policies are inviting worst Wrath Of God and destruction. Punishment is promised and cannot be escaped.  If the people remain a silent spectator then they too would face the same fate of destruction. Already they are facing deaths and destruction but the worst is yet to come. So it is still time to think and get connected to God and truth and learn to defend and fight for the right and rights. There is no other solution. NEVER vote for any party or person involved in exploiting, cheating and harming the people and country.

            I can sense and see the destruction of many powerful, rich and poor countries because of the wrong people, leaders and policies. The very powerful ones would face self-destruction as a result. They cannot stand against the power and Wrath Of God. History, original holy books and people tell us about fate of the past generations and people.

            Are we prepared to learn from them? MAY BE NOT. This is what it seems and looks like. Neglecting the good ones, we keep supporting and promoting the stooges and poodles as our leaders. If this is what we keep doing then we must stop complaining about sufferings and destruction because these are what we are choosing and getting.

            Unfortunately, the powerful media and intelligence agencies have mostly become organ of the devil and helping promote the Whisper Of Devil (WOD) in the form of dirty and venomous propaganda. The conscienceless and characterless media organizations and people have become a dangerous tool and weapon of the devil. Instead of helping and supporting the people, it is helping, supporting and promoting evil, death and destruction. This is an open fact now. It’s time we correct ourselves before it is too late. For this, let’s help, support and promote each other in all and best possible ways. Learn to respect and be respected. Stand up for the right and rights. Struggle and fight for it. Expose, fail and defeat the crooks, corrupts and cruels.

FIND, FOLLOW PERSONS WHO LIVE,

 WORK & DIE FOR CAUSE, PEOPLE

BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER

Goodwill Ambassador for Pakistan-Canada Relations (PCR) of Good Governance Forum

            TORONTO:  Failures, mistakes, losses, wound and pain always have a lesson for us to learn and hold the key to right destination, triumph and success. One of the most important lessons is to think seriously, live responsibly and work properly, on common lines if working with others, for the right purpose, good reason and just cause.

            There are three types of people who view and serve the just cause in different ways:

1) Common people: Who think and try to be good and do something for a just cause.

2) Good people: Who think, live, work and die for a just cause and right reasons.

3) Best people: Who are fully committed to only think, live, work and die for God, people, just cause, right purpose and good reason. They are blessed with best divine guidance, support and protection.

The messengers, prophets, saints and pious persons are best ideals and examples. Prophet Ismail (AS) offered himself for sacrifice and Imam Hussain (RA), the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), gave sacrifice to please God. Both of them acted willingly and happily. They have laid the best examples for people who knowingly, willingly, happily and smilingly want to think, live, work and die for God, just cause and people. 

This also defines and explains the philosophy of supreme martyrdom (Shahadat) of Imam Hussain (RA) and all martyrs (Shuhada). They all sacrificed themselves just to please God and fulfil their promises and commitments.

            Best people are precious gems, very few and hard to find. They are liked and loved by God and emerge and act only on commands of God to help and support the people. God explains as follows as to who the best people are:

            Surah Al-Asr # 103 (Verse 1-3): By (the Token of) time (through the Ages), (1) Verily Man is in loss, (2) Except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy. (3)

            Surah Al-E-Imran # 3 (Verse 200): O ye who believe! persevere in patience and constancy: vie in such perseverance; strengthen each other; and fear Allah; that ye may prosper.   

            Surah Al-Anbiya # 21(Verse 85): And (remember) Ismail, Idris and Dhu al Kifl, all (men) of constancy and patience.

            Surah Al-Mumenoon # 23 (Verse 111): “I have rewarded them this day for their patience and constancy: they are indeed the ones that have achieved Bliss…”

            Surah Al-Balad # 90 (Verse 17): Then will he be of those who believe, and enjoin patience, (constancy, and self-restraint), and enjoin deeds of kindness and compassion.

            Surah Fussilat # 41 (Verse 35): And no one will be granted such goodness except those who exercise patience and self-restraint none but persons of the greatest good fortune.

            Surah Al-Insan # 76 (Verse 24): Therefore be patient with constancy to the Command of thy Lord, and hearken not to the sinner or the ingrate among them.

            All these divine messages tell us about who the good and best people are and the reasons for our failures, sufferings and destruction.

For real success, prosperity, peace and stability we need good leadership and for all these we need true leaders. This is why we must always keep searching for good nature and character people. Then only we can find the good and best people. We must always only encourage, support, promote and vote for the right people, right reason and just cause.

In order to please God and serve humanity in reality, we must always try to live, work and dies for the just cause and humanity and for this unite with all like-minded people.

To prepare and face the toughest challenges and enemies and emerge victorious and successful, we need to have and show great patience and tolerance, faith in God and remain steadfast, determined and committed.   

In most of my articles, I add my profile in the end. Many people have objected and taunted me but they don’t understand my reason for using it. There are two important reasons for it. Firstly, it helps me remind and realize about my duties and responsibilities, then analyse about what I have done or what I should have done or what I should be doing now or in future.

Secondly, the positions, designations and capacities mentioned in the profile and as a result the contributions and  achievements made makes me and the community feel really proud and gives me the energy, strength and the power to do more and better. It also inspires and motivates others to think and work on the common line.

Thirdly, we keep making new friends from different communities and countries and adding them to the email or other lists. They need our introduction to know who we are and what are our contributions, achievements, aims and objectives. Therefore, it is necessary to repeat.

Although I am a sinner, imperfect person and Muslim, have faults and commit many mistakes, still I seek forgiveness and try to get inspiration and good impression from all good messages, things and people. This helps me a lot

For forgiveness and mercy so that I may not be included among cruel and losers, I always try to remember, understand and recite the following four things:

1)      Surah Al-Fatiha # 1 (Verse 1-7): Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, (2) The

Beneficent, the Merciful. (3) Owner of the Day of Judgment, (4) Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) we ask for help. (5) Show us the straight path, (6) The path of those whom Thou hast favoured. Not (the path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray. (7) 

2)      Surah Al-Anbiya # 21 (Verse 87): And (mention) Dhu’n-Nun, when he went off in

anger and deemed that We had no power over him, but he cried out in the darkness, saying: There is no God save Thee. Be Thou glorified! Lo! I have been a wrong-doer. (87).

3)      Surah Al-Mumenoon # 23 (Verse 118): And (O Muhammad) say: My Lord!

Forgive and have mercy, for Thou art Best of all who show mercy. (118)

4)      Surah Al-Araf # 7 (Verse 23): They said: Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves.

If thou forgive us not and have not mercy on us, surely we are of the lost! (23)

IQRAR-UL-HASSAN SYED: I am greatly impressed by Iqrar-ul-Hassan Syed, host and anchor person of ARY News.  Indeed, he is a brave person and daring man and I keep praying for his long life and protection. His programme “Sar-e-Aam” on various topics has exposed many serious crimes and the dirty faces of crooks, criminals and corrupt officials. He inspires me to live, work and serve people boldly humanity in reality.

There are many others busy working and serving in similar ways and we must always encourage and support them in every ways. The daring ones deserve and need full backing, support and protection. They are the ones who are risking their lives to bring a REAL CHANGE.

For Good Governance and practical changes we need a team of such people. Yes, we need such team leaders. Let’s support and promote all such people and if possible join them to make them very powerful and stronger.

GGF: I recently joined the Good Governance Forum of Pakistan as Goodwill Ambassador for Pakistan-Canada (PCR) with the same intention and purpose. My motto is `Serve Humanity In Reality’. The GGF impressed me because they are trying to bring practical and positive changes in Pakistan. They are thinking and working on common lines.

In Canada, through Pak Seniors Forum (PSF) and all other positions and platforms of important organizations including NEPMCC, I keep trying my best to serve the community and humanity and keep requesting, appealing and thanking people for the encouragement, help and support. I keep thanking The Almighty for the blessings and guidance.

In conclusion, I request and appeal to all people, particularly Overseas Pakistanis, to come forward, unite, live, think and work together and struggle for the common just cause and to Serve Humanity In Reality. It will help one and all in solving problems and issues of the people, community, society, system, country and the world. For this proper awareness, understanding and practical action is needed. Only this way we can promote love, bring people together, unite them and turn with determination dreams into realities. Our aim is to end corruption from root-level and bring and ensure Good Governance.

EXPLOITED PEOPLE ARE HELPLESS NOT STUPID

EXPLOITED PEOPLE ARE

  HELPLESS NOT STUPID

 

BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER,

DEDICATED TO SERVE, CREATE AWARENESS

 

TORONTO: Don’t feel bad or get mad and react in the same manner when arrogant, crazy and senseless people consider and call you stupid, idiot and a fool.  If you can manage, handle, help and support them then go ahead. If you can’t, don’t mess to make it worse but avoid and just pray for the poor souls and leave them to God or those who can really handle properly. This is what they deserve the most in such pitiable condition. However, the situation differs when it is said and done deliberately and cunningly in full senses.

At a seniors gathering recently, one of the members, who like most others who boast and claim to be highly literate, experienced, well-connected and try desperately to promote themselves from team leader to community leader, knowingly, unknowingly or jokingly, gave a nasty comment: “All those who consider themselves as exploited ones are STUPID”.

Such comment about people who deserve priority attention, help, support and promotion, exposes the type and calibre of most community leaders, their character, intention and mindset. This is a common problem with people who are self-proclaimed leaders and consider themselves and pose as heavyweights and champions of everything including community and humanity.

In reality, these exploiters, opportunists and hypocrites are rotten eggs of the society and community. They are cunning and cruel and only interested in their vested interests and can stoop to any lows to achieve them. Yes, they are the ones who think that the exploited, helpless and innocent people are stupid, idiot and fool. They keep preying on them and playing with them. They act as quicksand and prevent the people from reaching the true leaders.  

We have to, should and must remain alert, united and committed to protect all good, innocent, deserving, helpless and exploited people from all such evils and devils in disguise, who are harming and damaging the community, society, system and the country in reality. All those engaged in serving the people in any way must come forward and act to protect the people.

We cannot expect any good thinking, constructive approach and positive results from the Charia (Mentally Sick), Chirandi (Troublemaker) and Jahil & Makkar (Illiterate & cunning) characters and hope that the leaders, parties, groups and bodies of all levels—municipal, provincial and national—would keep them away in the best interest of the people and parties.

Is there really a dearth of good people and leaders in the community and country that  nuisances are made volunteers, members and leaders? Unfortunately, instead of being monitored and controlled properly so that the people and their interests are protected and not harmed, they are cleverly used and cunningly let loose on the people. Is this not why both the people and the country are suffering? Yes, it is.

The Muslim Community is playing an important constructive and positive role and contributing tremendously towards progress, prosperity and stability of Canada, US and the people.  The number of Muslims, Mosques and Madrassas is increasing rapidly. This is because of good character of Muslims and the rights, freedom and facilities enjoyed in these countries. More Muslims are becoming Practicing Muslims and teaching and training their children as well.

What the community and the people in general urgently need is a good and true leadership for better performances, contributions and results. Despite the lacking in most fields they are doing well and good.

The cunning exploiters, opportunists, professionals and hypocrites are definitely NOT but certainly yes pose as religious leaders, scholars and pious persons. They act as mafia, use mosques and madrassas for their vested interests, prey on the worshippers and innocent people and play with them. They do not enjoy trust and confidence of the people, who understand their nature, character and the dirty game very well.

Just construction of large and beautiful mosques and collection of money/donation in the name of or for their maintenance/facilities only is not sufficient. The mosques and the donation boxes become a source of lifetime earnings for the mafia. This is exactly what they are interested in and want. The mosques must be used purely as a place of worship and centres of excellence to properly guide Muslims and promote and spread message of Islam and humanity.    

Look what Allah says about the wrong-doers in the Holy Quran. Sura 9 – Al-Tawba (MADINA) : Verse 19:

“Do you consider the providing of drinking water to the pilgrims and the maintenance of Al-Masjid-al-Harâm (at Makkah) as equal to the worth of those who believe in Allâh and the Last Day, and strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allâh? They are not equal before Allâh. And Allâh guides not those people who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers).”—Translation  Eng-Dr. Mohsin

Even people booking and buying land for graves in the cemetery have been allegedly cheated in Canada. They are approaching those involved in dealing of the land for grave and cemetery so that they could get back the difference in hundreds (Their hard earned money) but have faced disappointment till now. 

On the one hand such swindlers acting as community and religious leaders fool the people by saying that they consider the gay and lesbian as sinners on religious grounds but on the other hand they are found to be their best friends, partners and committed team mates. They cleverly use religion for this purpose and play with the people. If they think it is right then they should give valid reasons to convince the people.

It is very simple, as Canadians or Americans or whatsoever, Muslims definitely have problem in becoming gay or lesbian because the religion strictly forbids them and warns them of Wrath of Allah (The Almighty) but they have no problem in working with gay or lesbian in the best interest of the community, people and country. They can never practically become part of gay or lesbian class or support and promote them for this very purpose.

The parameter for judgment of a good person, true leader and believer is described by Allah (The Almighty) in the Holy Quran as follows. Sura # 103 Al-Asr (Verses 1-3):

“By the declining day, (1) Lo! man is a state of loss, (2) Save those who believe and do good works, and exhort one another to truth and exhort one another to endurance. (3)”—Translation by Pickthal.

 We can easily recognize and identify the Fake & Cunning Mullahs, scholars, leaders and persons in general by carefully reading and understanding Sura # 107 Al-Maun (Verses 1-7) in the Holy Quran. It clearly tells us about how to judge people and protect our prayers in order to become a good and pious person and a practicing Muslim (Believer & Worshipper).

“Hast thou observed him who belieth religion? (1) That is he who repelleth the orphan, (2) And urgeth not the feeding of the needy. (3) Ah, woe unto worshippers (4) Who are heedless of their prayer; (5) Who would be seen (at worship) (6) Yet refuse small kindnesses! (7)”.  

In order to serve humanity in reality and the people in the best possible manner we have to become: 1) Good human being first and then 2) Good Practitioner. Only a Good Person can please Allah—The Almighty by serving all people—irrespective of caste, creed and religion—in the best possible manner.

SHUN MULLAH, SEEK ALLAH FOR HELP, PROTECTION & SUCCESS

SHUN MULLAH, SEEK ALLAH FOR

HELP, PROTECTION & SUCCESS

 

BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER

 

TORONTO:  Ever wondered why Big India (Bharat or Hindustan) was conquered so many times? Put aside historians and conspiracies and let’s talk blunt and straight?

It may be really difficult to digest but then truth is truth. Let’s face it to understand, accept it and keep trying to shake and wake the people, which too, although, is very difficult but again our duty is to keep trying.      

Not that there was and is any dearth of braves and greats in this giant wonderful country or South Asia region. The problem lies with the people. They are to be blamed for being invaded, conquered and made helpless and slaves by so many. 

In the past, thugs and robbers came from outside as traders and invaders, corrupted the system, society and people, stole the priceless treasures and ruined the country. What did the people do to protect themselves? They remained helpless and became slaves and even now they are helpless and slaves.

 Today, there are elected governments and democracies in including India, Pakistan and Bangladesh but in reality extremists, fanatics, crooks, criminals and terrorists rule the streets and parliaments and terrorize the people, leaders and policymakers. They are extremely powerful and control the people, leaders, system and society. People are literally their slaves. Those who dare to stand up and raise voices are silenced or eliminated.

The biggest crime of the people is they keep watching helplessly and allow this to happen instead of standing up to help those who dare to stand up, raise voices and struggle.

If this trend of corruption, terrorism, helplessness and slavery continues, I can bet that the people of South Asia region will remain helpless and slaves for centuries. One after another, cruel thugs, robbers and invaders would make and keep them as slaves.

Same is the condition in most countries of the Muslim World.  Allah will only listen and help when people turn towards Him. History and the past tell us that Allah never lets down or disappoints any of His true believers, followers and lovers including prophets and pious persons.

            Whenever the prophets and pious persons asked for, He always sent help. Then why the help is not coming today? Has Allah stopped listening or helping? Just think, think and think? The fault lies with us. We have to mend our ways and put ourselves on the right track—The path which leads towards Allah—instead of becoming selfish and thinking of only vested interests, heavens and paradise.

            If we come close to Allah and start truly loving, caring and serving humanity, everything will come close to us and be ours. This is the secret to success and victory of Muslim or any Good Human Being.

            If we keep following blindly the so-called, self-proclaimed and commercialized Mullah and Aalim then we will only keep landing in total darkness and disaster. These Mullah and Aalim cannot even see the Ramazan and Eid moons then how can they see Allah? Because of being in complete darkness they cannot see Allah, take you somewhere else and put you on the wrong track.

            These suckers dream of, see and seek only holes from where they could derive pleasure.    The donation boxes in the mosques and madrassas are their treasure boxes. The money that comes feeds them and their generations for whole life. Never be fooled and exploited by them. It is our moral, social, religious and national duty to expose and stop them. Check and balance with proper accountability is extremely important to protect the money and ensure proper utilization.

            Understand the realities and facts and you will start understanding and seeing Allah through nature, science, signs and senses. Allah is never far from us. In fact He is the nearest to us. So why are we unable to see and seek Him? He is waiting to hug and help us. The pious persons, true Mullah and Aalim can help you see and seek Allah. Respect and follow them.

            Without Allah’s guidance, help and blessings we cannot achieve any success and victory and regain the lost respect and glory. This we must always understand and remember.

PAKISTAN IN GRIP OF SERPENTS, WEB OF DEMOCRACY

PAKISTAN IN GRIP OF SERPENTS,

          WEB OF CONSPIRACY

 

BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER

 

            TORONTO: The Creation of Pakistan was the Will of God  (Allah—The Almighty) to provide not only the Muslims but all supporters and promoters of love, respect, peace and humanity a place and platform from where they could practically serve all and help make the world a safe and better place to live in.

            For them this creation was indeed a golden opportunity and a precious gift from The Creator and Lord of The Worlds. This was the positive purpose of making of the wonderful nation Pakistan, undoubtedly one of the heavens on planet earth.

            This spiritual and divine decision and implementation was, as usual, beyond imagination of the enemies of humanity and mankind, who remained irked, were alerted and got scared by the firm intentions and practical actions, will, determination, struggle, goodness and greatness of the Great People of the Indian Sub-Continent, who always remained in the forefront as strong voice of the world people and champions of humanity.

            These Great People were brave and true leaders and belonged to various communities including Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs and Christians. They were visionary leaders and definitely the ones who felt the pain of the people and the need to free them from the grip and web of the cunning and cruel ones.

            The cunning and cruel ones always feared the spiritual power and rise of the Muslims, who remained past rulers and were supported by saner, sincere and patriotic leaders and people of other communities.

            The cunning ones planned conspiracies to deal with them and found a strong partner—The Colonialist Rulers—who were the masters of divide and rule. They became pimp and puppets of the Colonialist Rulers and both decided to cunningly divide the Muslims and ultimately destroy the feared Muslim unity and power.

            For them the partition of India-Pakistan was a great success of their international conspiracy. They very much enjoyed every bit of the chronic pain and tremendous sufferings of the Muslims and their supporters and others. Families were divided and shattered.

            Muslims of both sides started to dislike and hate each other, particularly the Indian Muslims blaming and cursing the Pakistanis for the partition. Even today most of the Indian Muslims dislike and hate Pakistanis and curse and abuse them. They remain in great complex whereas Pakistani Muslims have no such complex and instead always consider them as brothers, miss them and pray for their welfare.

            Not only this, Pakistanis always raised voice and stand for the Indian Muslims, whenever and wherever needed. This is because the Muslims in Pakistan had been doing this for centuries. Now, after creation of Pakistan, they were doing this openly and fearlessly.

            The Indian Muslims should understand this and thank the Pakistanis. They must understand why the God (Allah—The Almighty) created Pakistan. It is they who one day with the help of others will come to their help to free them from the clutches, grip and web of the cunning and cruel ones. Learn a lesson from history. Ask the historians to tell the truth.

            The Indian and Pakistani Muslims and all those of the Muslim World must understand this clearly that Mohammad Ali Jinnah, Founder of Pakistan, was not an ordinary person.  Undoubtedly, he was one of the greatest Great True Leaders of all times. He was such a Great Visionary that some thought he was a saintly figure (Wali Allah).

            Pir Jamaat Ali Shah of Hyderabad Deccan after receiving a letter sent by Mohammad Ali Jinnah to thank him for the gifts presented said that despite the long distance between their places—-Jinnah in Bombay and Pir Jamaat Ali Shah in Hyderabad Deccan, Jinnah understood the good intentions of the Pir behind the gifts and said he (Jinnah) indeed was a Wali Allah. Such was the vision of this Great Visionary Leader.

            A religious figure, Maulana Ahmed Saeed, Secretary, Jamiatul Ulama-i-Hind, in a speech at the Jamia Masjid in Muradabad, India, on December 7, 1936, paid rich tributes to Mohammad Ali Jinnah and conferred a title. Translated in English, his words were: “Among the Muslims today, there is no one who understands politics better than he (Jinnah) does. Hence he fully deserves to be the Quaid-e-Azam of the Muslims.” The title was immediately adopted by the Muslims of India.

            The title received statutory recognition by the Pakistan Constituent Assembly. On 12 August 1947, it resolved that Mohammad Ali Jinnah be addressed as Quaid-e-Azam in all acts and documents.” Such an example, where a title of honour became a great leader’s identification even more than his real name, is rare in modern history.

            Malik Habib Ullah, a devotee of Quaid-e-Azam and a researcher of high merit, in his book, Quaid-e-Azam Ki Shakhsyyat Ka Ruhani Pehlu (The Spiritual Side of Quaid-e-Azam’s Personality) has thrown light on the spiritual qualities of Mohammad Ali Jinnah. This wonderful document fulfills the vital need for making people aware that their matchless political leader had this sterling quality also.

            Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi, a renowned scholar and a Sufi, was a totally non-political personality who would not associate himself with any political party or politician. On a visit to Amritsar in 1938, while addressing a gathering of his disciples, he surprised them with his praise and support for Mohammad Ali Jinnah.

            He said about Jinnah: “He is a sincere and truthful Muslim and is the most capable leader of the Indian Muslims. The light of his truthfulness and sincerity shows that he will surely succeed. God Almighty will honour him with the feat of creating a separate State for the Muslims. I have told all my followers that they are to back Mohammad Ali Jinnah in every matter and under all conditions.”

            On 4 July 1943, Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi asked his nephew, Maulana Zafar Ahmad Usmani, and Maulana Shabbir Ahmad Usmani to see him. When they came, he said to them:

            “I have seen in a spiritual vision (Kashf) that Allah The Omnipotent will grant success to Mohammad Ali Jinnah. The Pakistan Resolution of 1940 will triumph. My days are numbered. Were I to live, I would have certainly helped. It is God’s Will that Muslims should have a separate state. Do whatever you can for creation of Pakistan; encourage your followers also to do the same. One of you two Usmanis will lead my funeral prayer while the other will lead Mr Jinnah’s funeral prayer.”

Mohammad Ali Jinnah, who was deservingly given the title of Quaid-e-Azam (Supreme Leader), always remained bold, firm and fully determined to accomplish the job assigned to him by none other than Allah—The Almighty. He was indeed a true servant of Islam and people and a soldier of Allah—The Almighty. His decision, struggle and success proved this.

            The fact that the God (Allah—The Almighty) chose Mohammad Ali Jinnah for such an  important purpose proves his greatness and goodness. Jinnah hid his chronic illness and closeness to The Almighty in order to dodge and fight the cunning and cruel ones and international conspirators. He deserves to be respectfully called Hazrat Quaid-e-Azam or Hazrat Mohammad Ali Jinnah.

            Had the cunning and cruel ones and international conspirators known this, they would have fully exploited the situation and seriously harmed Muslims in other ways. Like Viceroy of India Lord Mountbatten said that had he known about the bad health condition of Jinnah he would have delayed the partition and then there would have been no Pakistan.

            The Colonialists rulers wanted to prolong their rule and have both Hindus and Muslims under them whereas the cunning and cruel ones wanted to get rid of Muslims in order to have an open field for them and later rule India. Even now they dream of this and want to establish the Hindustan Empire or Akhand Bharat. Their intentions, actions and conspiracies expose and explain them and their cunningness. The Muslims of India need to understand this.

            Addressing a meeting of the Working Committee of the All-India Muslim League on October 22, 1939, in Lahore, Mohammad Ali Jinnah made a memorable statement. It was published in Urdu in “Daily Inqilab”. The English translation is as follows:

            “Muslims! I have seen enough of the world, have enjoyed wealth and fame. Now I have only one wish in life, that I should see the Muslims liberated and independent. I wish when I die I should die with this belief and satisfaction that my conscience and my God should bear witness that Jinnah was not insincere or disloyal to Islam and that he discharged his duty toward liberating, organizing and defending the Muslims. I am not asking for any appreciation or testimony from you. I want  that at the time of my death, my own heart, my faith, my conscience should testify: Jinnah, indeed, you fulfilled the obligation of defending Islam; Jinnah you carried out your duty of organizing, uniting and defending the Muslims; my God should say: indeed you were born a Muslim, and you died a Muslim while holding the banner of Islam high in the dominance of the forces of unbelief.”

            Only those who are blinded by the venomous negative propaganda of international conspiracy or those who lack knowledge of the facts and realities of creation of Pakistan and about the good character, personality and intentions of Mohammad Ali Jinnah and his sincere followers and supporters would talk nonsense about Pakistan, Jinnah and others.

            The day they will come to know, realize and understand the facts and realities about making of Pakistan and the struggle made and tremendous sacrifices given for its creation, they would start feeling proud and would struggle for Muslim Ummah and humanity. That day is  bound to come. This is also the Will of God (Allah—The Almighty).

            Since its birth on August 14, 1947, and till the present day, Pakistan and Pakistanis faced difficult days and extremely tough challenges. Most of the time, the sailing remained rough. The international conspirators and their cunning and cruel partners were expecting the destruction of Pakistan ASAP.

            The delay in destruction and the unexpected great progress and success achieved by Pakistan and Pakistanis, despite all the challenges, troubles and hurdles, increased their worry and anger and made them very restless.

            Through venomous negative propaganda, cunningness and web of corruption and confusion, they started damaging the system and society of Pakistan. Slowly and gradually true leadership was replaced by cunning, crook and corrupt ones. The Public Servants were replaced by Poisonous Serpents.

            Qazzaks (Looters & Plunderers) have penetrated and controlled the parliament, assemblies, bureaucracy, institutions, system and society. After Quaid-e-Azam (Mohammad Ali Jinnah), Quad-e-Millat (Liaquat Ali Khan) and Madar-e-Millat (Fatima Jinnah) the country and the people mostly remained slaves of the Qazzaks (Looters and Plunderers). The country badly needs a True Quaid (True Leader) to get rid of Quaid-e-Qazzaks and his band of crooks   

            These deadly serpents in the shape of rulers, bureaucrats, policymakers, lawmakers, politicians, leaders, fake mullahs and so on are busy day and night in injecting poison in the form of corruption into Pakistan. Now, Pakistan is seriously ill and the enemies are happy and expecting that their conspiracy plan will succeed.

            This they always think and become happy but then are disappointed when Pakistan shows progress and success. One thing they always forget or don’t realize is that Pakistan was created by the Will of God (Allah—The Almighty). No matter how much poison they inject in whatever forms and through whatever means and how much damage and destruction they cause, Allah is always there to protect Pakistan and Pakistanis.

            Even the creation of Bangladesh is going in favour of Pakistan and Muslims of South Asia. The Muslims have not been weakened. They have instead become stronger. The progress and prosperity of Bangladesh proves this. It is too bound to become a great Muslim power. This is all again due to the Will of God (Allah—The Almighty). The enemies and conspirators again are very much disturbed. Whatever they are thinking or doing is going against them.

            On people-to-people level majority of Bangladeshis and Pakistanis love, respect and support each other. The wise and saner elements in both countries know very well who the enemies are and what their intentions are. Both the countries enjoy very good and brotherly relations now.

The conspirators are amazed, surprised and angered. The conspiracy plan no doubt caused tremendous destruction, terrible sufferings and mass killings but failed to harm Muslim unity. The international conspiracy plan miserably failed once again.

            Pakistanis and all Muslims in the South Asia region must prepare themselves to serve humanity in reality. They can do this only if they start to choose, promote and support True Leadership. Such true leaders can practically help achieve Muslim Unity.

            Instead of cursing and abusing ourselves as Pakistanis and Muslims or Mohammad Ali Jinnah and others including our elders for making Pakistan or becoming disappointed by the extremely bad situation in Pakistan and worst condition of people, we must stand up to face the tough challenges and difficult times. The top priority must be to get rid of all Qazzaks (Looters and Plunders) and their Quaid (Leader).

            The only solution is True Leadership. Great true leaders are badly needed to save Pakistan and make the country and the Muslim World a real World Power. Only they can turn this dream into reality. We must compose ourselves and understand this very well that Pakistan’s destiny is such that it is bound to become a great power and lead the Muslim World.

            Muslims must realize and understand that this too is a Will of Allah—The Almighty. Even if we fail to find or chose a true leader, Allah—The Almighty will chose a Great Leader, like He chose Mohammad Ali Jinnah, to protect Pakistan and lead the Muslim World.

            This Great Leader will also help free the Indian Muslims and all those innocent and helpless people of other communities and religions in India or in the South Asia region from the grip of the cunning and cruel ones. This will not be the first time to happen. The past is full of such examples. When Great Leaders were called for help they responded positively and helped and freed the people. History will repeat itself. This is what the cunning and cruel ones fear the most.

            Let us demonstrate Muslim Unity with the aim and objective of practically serving humanity in reality. Our will and determination can smash and remove all hurdles and obstacles and can make us strong enough to meet even the toughest challenges. We can only serve humanity in reality if we live and work with all communities including Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hindu, Sikh and others. Good people of all communities belong to only one category—GOOD. So prove our greatness through goodness.

            Unless and until every member of the community becomes a QUAID (Team Leader) this objective can never be achieved. A good person or a good Muslim will never promote and support hatred or terrorism. You can only expect the best and prepare for the worst if you put yourself on the right tract with firm decision and determination. The Internet world has made it easy for us to acquire vast knowledge about anything and everything including M. A. Jinnah

ARE MUSLIMS ALLOWED TO WORSHIP PERSONALITIES?

ARE MUSLIMS ALLOWED TO

 WORSHIP PERSONALITIES?

 

BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER

 

            TORONTO: Were you part of or did you witness the great moment?: The demonstration of unity, love, respect, joy and happiness when all those who truly believe in, support and promote humanity, love, respect, brotherhood, peace and unity joined the Muslims throughout the world in celebration of Eid Miladun Nabi, birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), on 12th of Rabiul Awwal (January 25, 2013). On behalf of the Muslims and all those who greeted and joined the celebration of this great occasion, I would like to thank all.  

            Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) personality is an example of the best true leadership, which we must try to understand, adopt and follow. A study of his life, character and contributions (Seeratun Nabi) helps us to understand the values, principles, actions, impressions and status of the Best Human Beings.

            Not only this it also properly and practically connects us to the divine messages in the Holy Quran and other holy books like Bible, Torah and Scrolls because the main message and the author—Allah (The Almighty)—are same.

            Like others (non-Muslims), who greet and join us in our religious and other celebrations, we must also join them in celebration of Christmas and other events, which are permitted by our religion. This is because we too like, love and respect all the prophets (PBUT) mentioned in the holy books and all saints and good people. This is how we can promote togetherness and unity and serve humanity in reality.

            Only with the shining examples of life and true leadership and spiritual and visionary guidance of Best Human Beings like prophets (PBUT) we can practically become Good Human Beings and understand to truly respect and love each other and serve humanity and worship Allah (The Almighty) in reality. The rest is exercise in futility.

            The Sura Al-Ikhlas # 112 (Verses 1 to 4) in the Holy Quran specifically puts an end, once and for all, to the confusion, misunderstandings and differences created by vested interests between Christians and Muslims. Muslims, particularly, should understand that it leaves no room for them for any further debate, discussion or confusion.

            The translation is as follows:

            Say: He is Allah, the One! (1) Allah, the eternally Besought of all! (2) He begetteth not nor was begotten. (3) And there is none comparable unto Him. (4)

            When Allah (The Allah Mighty) Himself is saying: “He begetteth not nor was begotten” then who are we to debate or discuss that Jesus was His son or not. The Christians say that we don’t consider Prophet Jesus (PBUH) as His biological son.

            Sura # 19 Maryam (Verses16 to 22) in the Holy Quran explains further about Mary, Spirit and Prophet Jesus (PBUH). The translation is as follows:

            “And make mention of Mary in the Scripture, when she had withdrawn from her people to a chamber looking East, (16) And had chosen seclusion from them. Then We sent unto her Our Spirit and it assumed for her the likeness of a perfect man. (17) She said: Lo! I seek refuge in the Beneficent One from thee, if thou art God-fearing. (18) He said: I am only a messenger of thy Lord, that I may bestow on thee a faultless son. (19) She said: How can I have a son when no mortal hath touched me, neither have I been unchaste? (20) He said: So (it will be). Thy Lord saith: It is easy for Me. And (it will be) that We may make of him a Revelation for mankind and a mercy from Us, and it is a thing ordained. (21) And she conceived him, and she withdrew with him to a far place.”

            According to Sura # 19 Maryam (Verse 30) of the Holy Quran:

            “He ‘Īsā (Jesus) said: Verily! I am a slave of Allâh, He has given me the Scripture and made me a Prophet).”

            According to Sura # 3 Al-E-Imran (Verse 59):

            “This similitude of Jesus before Allah is as that of Adam: He created him from dust, then said to him: “Be” and he was.”

            When the facts (Divine messages) are clearly mentioned in the holy books and scrolls and we too know and understand them then why there is still confusion, misunderstandings and differences?  

The sole reason for such a confusing situation is the distortions, conspiracies and propagandas made by the committed enemies of mankind—The Evils and Devils in Disguise. They are the real conspirators, troublemakers and mischief-makers who are posing as peacemakers and champions of humanity. In reality, they are dangerous and destroyers.   

            According to Sura Al-Baqara # 2 (Verses 6 to 13) of Holy Quran:

            “As for the Disbelievers, Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not it is all one for them; they believe not. (6) Allah hath sealed their hearing and their hearts, and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be an awful doom. (7) And of mankind are some who say: We believe in Allah and the Last Day, when they believe not. (8) They think to beguile Allah and those who believe, and they beguile none save themselves; but they perceive not. (9) In their hearts is a disease, and Allah increaseth their disease. A painful doom is theirs because they lie. (10) And when it is said unto them: Make not mischief in the earth, they say: We are peacemakers only. (11) Are not they indeed the mischief-makers? But they perceive not. (12) And when it is said unto them: believe as the people believe, they say: Shall we believe as the foolish believe? Beware! They indeed are the foolish? But they know not. (13)

            All evils and devils in disguise including exploiters, opportunists and hypocrites belong to the Evil Forces of Darkness and are undoubtedly committed enemies of mankind and humanity. Unlike the good people with positive and constructive approach and purpose, their approach is negative and destructive and based on vested interests. They enjoy this very much.  

            These characterless characters have no conscience or religion but are good actors as champions of religions, humanity and community. This is how they play with the people.  

Wearing mask of goodness and peacemakers and in the shape of respectable and responsible persons, professionals, religious, community and party leaders, policymakers and rulers they fool, cheat and harm the helpless and innocent people. They keep making false promises and commitments but act vice versa. Such is their cunning nature. People understand but helplessly watch and elect them. This is their mistake. Only very few stand up and struggle against them. 

            In the form of professional religious leaders like priests, Jahil & Makkar Mullahs (Illiterate & cunning Mullahs), preachers and scholars they cause the most harm and worst damage. Just because of them, instead of worshipping Allah (The Almighty) illiterate and innocent people cross the limits of love and respect and start worshipping personalities. Allah (The Almighty) has always strictly warned us not to cross the limits and boundaries.  

            Through distortions, confusions, misunderstandings and differences they achieve their nefarious designs including dictatorship and worship. They fool, blackmail and threaten the helpless and innocent people. Allah (The Almighty) has clearly and openly warned, through holy books, prophets and good people, that it is great sin and wrong to worship personalities, who are human beings and creations of Allah (The Almighty).

            Allah states that the human beings deserve only respect and not worship. Those claiming to be Muslims and doing this must understand and stop forthwith. They need to change their ways and lives and put themselves on the right track and category (Which Allah describes in the holy books including Quran).       

            The world and Muslims too keep wondering as to why despite the best true leadership of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), his great good character and tremendous role and contributions for humanity the Muslims are in such a bad state and suffering?   

            The answer to this question is very simple and understandable:  There are three types of Muslims—Best, Good and Worst. Most of the Muslims seem to greatly love Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and Allah (The Almighty) but in reality how many really love both of them. When I say really that means practically and spiritually with full commitment, dedication and devotion. Frankly, there are very few only and they are indeed the best ones.  The number of good ones is less and the worst ones very high.

            Just analyze our lives and contributions and we will get the answer and the category we are choosing. If we reform and transform ourselves to practically follow the examples of Best True Leadership, like Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), other Prophets (PBUT) and all good people, and sensibly select True Leadership then only we can become good and successful.  

            Allah (The Almighty) is always there to help us. In the Holy Quran (Sura Al-Waqia # 56, Verses 1-57) Allah (The Almighty) clearly states about the types of people and their fates.  

   `        “When the event befalleth – (1) There is no denying that it will befall – (2) Abasing (some), exalting (others); (3) When the earth is shaken with a shock (4) And the hills are ground to powder (5) So that they become a scattered dust, (6) And ye will be three kinds: (7) (First) those on the right hand; what of those on the right hand? (8) And (then) those on the left hand; what of those on the left hand? (9) And the foremost in the race, the foremost in the race: (10) Those are they who will be brought nigh (11) In gardens of delight; (12) A multitude of those of old (13) And a few of those of later time. (14) On lined couches, (15) Reclining therein face to face. (16) There wait on them immortal youths (17) With bowls and ewers and a cup from a pure spring (18) Wherefrom they get no aching of the head nor any madness, (19) And fruit that they prefer (20) And flesh of fowls that they desire. (21) And (there are) fair ones with wide, lovely eyes, (22) Like unto hidden pearls, (23) Reward for what they used to do. (24) There hear they no vain speaking nor recrimination (25) (Naught) but the saying: Peace, (and again) Peace. (26) And those on the right hand; what of those on the right hand? (27) Among thornless lote-trees (28) And clustered plantains, (29) And spreading shade, (30) And water gushing, (31) And fruit in plenty (32) Neither out of reach nor yet forbidden, (33) And raised couches; (34) Lo! We have created them a (new) creation (35) And made them virgins, (36) Lovers, friends, (37) For those on the right hand; (38) A multitude of those of old (39) And a multitude of those of later time. (40) And those on the left hand: What of those on the left hand? (41) In scorching wind and scalding water (42) And shadow of black smoke, (43) Neither cool nor refreshing. (44) Lo! heretofore they were effete with luxury (45) And used to persist in the awful sin. (46) And they used to say: When we are dead and have become dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised again, (47) And also our forefathers? (48) Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Lo! those of old and those of later time (49) Will all be brought together to the tryst of an appointed day. (50) Then lo! ye, the erring, the deniers, (51) Ye verily will eat of a tree called Zaqqum (52) And will fill your bellies therewith; (53) And thereon ye will drink of boiling water, (54) Drinking even as the camel drinketh. (55) This will be their welcome on the Day of Judgment. (56) We created you. Will ye then admit the truth?

            While celebrating Eid Miladun Nabi, we must keep all this in mind and analyze the reasons for our failures, sufferings and destruction. We must just focus on the purpose of our creation and existence—-Worship of only Allah (The Almighty) and to serve humanity in reality.  

            Remember, no Pir, Faqir or Mullah (Religious Leaders) or any PERSONALITY can take the place of Allah (The Almighty). Instead of being misled by distortions and propagandas, let us just understand and follow The True Divine Messages. Lives and teachings of all the prophets including Muhammad, Jesus and Moses (PBUT), saints, pious and good people are based on these Divine Messages and for us to understand and implement.
