Chemistry of Taliban


The good deed and evil deed are not alike. Repel the evil deed with one which is better. Then, lo, between whom and thee there was enmity, would become as though he was a bosom friend. 41:34

Starting from the dregs of the chemical offal, Nemesis of Taliban at the bottom is not death (for them, who are still plotting murder by the most cowardly means--suicide bombing) but the torment in living as they are shunned, despised and condemned. Living in utter isolation, worse than the lepers until the merciful hands of death are to save them from the torment in living. No great wonder then that to escape the tortures in life they choose the fetters of death in eternal damnation. Since by killing the innocent Children of God in ignorance of the laws of nature they are to suffer the tortures of the damned in conformity with the cause and effect of reward and punishment meted out to those who reject the treasures of love. Sad and tragic that these hate-mongering disciples of hatred most likely are the victims of love-deprivation, so incapable of cultivating this virtue prized by most God-fearing people who believe in the God of love, beauty and laughter. Not in the god of hatred, cruelty and ugliness. Also, passing sad that these 'suicide bombers' are snuffed out like a puff of smoke, unloved, unmourned, faceless and soulless. Miracle of miracles if someone could teach them the power of love?
May almighty God guide them to the light of love, peace and understanding, and comfort their wounded hearts with the balm of love and healing. Cauterizing their hearts of all malice, hatred and ignorance.
The second from bottom in the hourglass of dregs is Anathema... may the murderers-to-be accept this gift of knowledge:
For that cause We decreed for the children of Israel that whosoever kills a human being for other than manslaughter or corruption on earth, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came to them of old with clever proofs of Allah's sovereignty, but afterwards, lo,many of them became prodigals on earth. 5:32
The third in order of ascent is Bigotry... may the young recruits chosen for killing perceive the truth of Quranic injunctions:
This it is which Allah announceth unto his bondsmen who believe and do good works. Say O Muhammad unto mankind: I ask of you no fee thereof, save loving-kindness among kinsfolk. And whoso scoreth a good deed, We add unto its good for him. Lo, Allah is Forgiving, Responsive. 42:23
Ignorance is the fourth kernel in the scheme of tragedies rising toward the top... may this revelation destroy the animal instinct of killing in the minds and hearts of the young-would-be-suicide-bombers:
Enjoin ye righteousness upon mankind, while ye yourself forget to practice? And ye are the readers of Scripture. Have you then no sense? 2:44
Third in the order of lunacy is Lies... may the scent of brevity wipe clean the cobwebs of madness:
Woe unto each sinful liar. 45:7
Second from top in this concoction is Aggression... may the self-righteous heed the voice of wisdom:
The way of blame is only against those who oppress mankind, and wrongfully rebel in the earth. For such there is a painful doom. 42:42
Up on the top sits the brand of Transgression... may the brethren in faith take pity on their young wards and teach them love, not hatred, while being guided themselves first and foremost, somehow, miraculously...
Yet ye it is who slay each other and drive out a part of your people from their homes, supporting against them by sin and transgression. And if they came to you as captives ye would ransom them, whereas their expulsion itself was unlawful for you. Believe ye in part of the Scripture and disbelieve ye in part thereof? And what is the reward of those who do so save ignominy in the life of the world, and on the Day of Resurrection they will be consigned to the most grievous doom. For Allah is not unaware of what ye do. 2:85
Last but not least:
A gift of welcome from the Forgiving, the Merciful. 41:32

Gift of Life Most Precious

At fourteen you die
Serving the devils incarnate
Pressed by their zeal if not by their ignorance
To kill and maim God's creatures
Preaching murder and carnage
Commanding the young unfortunate
To spill their guts and blood
In the name of WHAT
Hatred, hypocrisy, vengeance
Cloaked under the blood-red mantle of
False piety, false pride, false belief
The corrupted, cankerous kernels
Of fabricated feast in religion
Fed to the young-martyrs-to-be
By the hate-mongering pack of
Mullas, Wahhabis, ignoramuses
Alas, the young ones draped
In shrouds of death
Would never know the wealth of
Well-preserved pearls in Quran
'In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds
The Beneficent, the Merciful
Owner of the Day of Judgment
Thee alone we worship, Thee alone we ask for help
Show us the straight path
The path of those whom Thou hast favored
Not the path of those who earn Thine anger
Nor of those who go astray.' 1:1 Quran
Their precious lives wasted
The gift of life spurned by madmen
Mothers drowned in raging flood of
Grief and mourning
Fresh buds of youth
If not claimed by bigots and zealots
Wondering in shock and disbelief
Why anyone in the name of God
Would teach torturing and slaughtering
Shunning the jewels of
Love, peace, harmony
'Ye who believe! Be steadfast witness for Allah in equity, and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo, Allah is informed of what ye do.' 5:8

Go, figure?
