Malala Revisited

The all merciful, the all loving, infinitely compassionate God has sent a team of angels in the guise of doctors, lawyers, students, activists, clerics, media, and army, police and government helpers to bandage the gift of life to healing, so brutally ripped apart by the bullets of Taliban and they demanding unbiased coverage? It is like devil asking his victims to pray for him so that he can go to heaven, pretending that he is not to be blamed for his evil actions since he is already condemned to eternal damnation. ____Precisely and paradoxically one century and thirty-two years ago an Afghani woman by the name of Malala working alongside men to tend the wounded during the Anglo-Afghan war carried the flag of victory when an Afghani flag-bearer was killed by the British. Now after decades of invasions, tyrannies and oppression Malala has returned as Malala Yousufzai who would raise the flag of peace over the globe of this universe, restoring the rights of women usurped by Taliban. The same rights in education and equality in work and marriage granted to them thirteen centuries ago by Prophet Muhammad. ____'Women shall have same rights over men as men have over them.' 2: 228 Quran ____'And they the women have rights similar to those of men in equity. I God will not allow the work of any worker from among you, whether male or female to be lost.' 3: 196 Quran ____And Taliban still want to silence the media and to kill Malala? By striking an innocent girl who even at this young age understands the worth of love and peace, while Taliban young and old and still immature, steeped deep in ignorance; neither knowing what Islam means, nor trying to understand its beautiful precepts, guided by the ocean of their hatred and bigotry know only to kill and tyrannize. Only a handful of hooligans, they are trying their utmost to blacken the face of Islam, succeeding only in killing innocent men, women and children and failing shamelessly in defaming Islam since millions of Muslims know better and continue to practice the virtues of love and peace. And yet our prayers reach out to Taliban for Guidance. ____'Lord grant guidance to my people, for surely they know not.' 7: 199 Quran ____'Create not disorder on earth.' 1: 12 Quran Peace to the world. We are eternally grateful to all who are helping Malala on the rungs to recovery.

Malala--Daughter of Peace

Little Malala has invited Prophet Muhammad to Pakistan and he has accepted the inviataion. We can feel the spirit of the Prophet of Peace in Pakistan, speaking through the lips of thousands of activists, students and peace organizations. Prophet is here to stay, working toward love and peace through clerics who issued fatwas against Taliban. Through the generosity of the true Muslims offering rewards for the arrest of the hatemongers called Taliban. Through the tireless efforts of compassionate men from army, police and government. Through lawyers who boycotted and most of all through young students who have joined hands against violence and ignorance. We are eternally grateful to each and every Angel of Peace for hope in Malala's quick recovery, for the arrest of suspects for the sake of peace and justice in the future. Hoping and praying that these young Taliban criminals guided by their hateful mentors would start a new journey, learning true precepts of Islam from the example of Prophet's life, while rejecting the vile, man-made edicts concocted by men who are brutal and vicious, heartless and soulless. They are living--in this life, in the hellfire of their own hatred, bigotry, hypocrisy, ignorance and darkness. And yet our prayers are for them also that they might escape this fire of eternal damnation through the mercy and grace of God. Prophet's sayings from the pearls of Hadith: God says: Verily my compassion overcomes my wrath. O My servants who have oppressed your own souls by sinning, if you knew the extent of My mercy, you would not despair of My forgivness if you repented. The acquisition of knowledge is a duty incumbent on every Muslim, male and female. That person who shall pursue the path of knowledge, God will direct him to the path of Paradise, and verily the superiority of a learned man over an ignorant worshiper is like that of a full moon over all the stars. Shall I inform you of a better act than alms, prayers and fasting? Making Peace between one another. Enmity and malice tear up heavenly rewards by the roots. Prayer is the annihilation of ego and union with the Divine, which lifts one's soul higher and higher in its journey toward the Beloved. God has not created anything better than Reason, or anything perfect, or more beautiful than Reason. The benefits which God gives are on its account; and understanding is by it, and God's wrath is caused by disregard of it. The rights of women are sacred, see that women are maintained in the rights assigned to them. 'And whos doeth good works, whether of male or female, such will enter Paradise and they will not be wronged a dint in a date-stone.' 4: 124 Quran Life a gift from God, and no one has the power to take it, but God. Love, peace and harmony for the world. Our prayers are for the health of little Malala, and our heartfelt gratitude to all the Pakistanis working diligently to attain the treasures of peace, justice and knowledge without the rust of lies and distortion. Many Thanks!

Malala Yousufzai--Victim of Violence

Malala Yousufzai is the victim of the most beastly and cowardly act of violence by Taliban who do not even fit the category of 'human', save alone being called Muslims. Isn't it time for Muslims NOW, for mullahs and scholars of Islam to raise their voices against Taliban, issue fatwas, apply the laws of Shariah upon these hoodlums for brutally hurting little girls with an attempt at killing? 'It is not for a believer to kill a believer unless it is by mistake...' 4:92 Quran. 'Whoso slayeth a believer of set purpose, his reward is hell forever. Allah is wroth against him and He hath cursed him and prepared for him an awful doom.' 4:93 Quran. Peace is neither of the West, nor of the East, nor of the North or of the South. Peace is a universal gift from the Creator for all to claim and nurture for the sake of leaving the legacy of peace for our children, and bewtowing upon them the treasures of love, peace and harmony. Anyone working toward peace should be respected and applauded, and anyone working against it needs to be schooled in learning the art of peace for the sake of peace at home, in schools, in families, in the world. Prophet of Peace--Prophet Muhammad, and Taliban i am sure, say, Peace Be Upon Him, whenever talking about Prophet Muhammad, should know that their 'beloved Prophet' is turning in his grave with grief, mourning and lamenting this shameless act of violence against a little girl, simply because she believes in peace. 'O People of Scripture! Now has the Messenger come unto you much of that you used to hide in the Scripture and forgiving much. Now hath come unto you light from Allah and a plain Scripture.' 5:15 Quran. 'Whereby Allah guideth him who seeketh His good pleasure unto paths of PEACE. He bringeth them out of darkness unto light by His decree and guideth them unto a straight path.' 5:16 Quran. Where are the 'apostles of peace' who a few weeks ago protested from country to country, burning, killing, destroying against the video defaming their Prophet of Peace? Would they dare come out NOW defending their Prophet of Peace who would not have ever sanctioned killing young girls...protesting peacefully i hope. This is the most vile and atrocious of crimes committed by Taliban amongst many more committed before, and i am appealing, nay, begging the whole world for the crumbs of compassion for the little girl and her family, to find and arrest those assassins/murdererss of innocent children and subject them under the rod of justice. Prayers for peace of the world, even for Taliban. May Allah drain the flood of ignorance and darkness from their hearts, replacing their seeds of hatred with the kernels of love. Our hearts are weeping in shame and sorrow for the victims of violence in this world and especially for Malala Yousufzai TODAY 'With knowledge man riseth to the heights of goodness and to a noble position, associated with sovereigns in this world and attaineth the perfection of happiness in the next.' Prophet Muhammad

Pilgrims of Peace in Pakistan

Many thanks for lending me the opportunity/privilege, Dear Students, for praising your good actions. How profoundly you have grasped the spirit of Islam--marching for peace to counter the ravages of violence. Jihad, besides being an inner struggle to purify one's heart of all evils, as the Prophet said, is also a part of good actions in many small ways, like removing hurdles from the streets so that people don't get hurt. Prophet Muhammad emphasized that Jihad is helping the poor, the orphans, the widows. Being kind to strangers, gladdening the hearts of the sorrowful. Being compassionate and generous. Being loving to God's creatures, including the animals, just to name a few. Your resolve to go out on the streets with the message of goodwill, Young Students, have scattered the seeds of love and peace which would grow and muliply. May the ocean of love in your hearts find channels to flow freely into hte hearts of others so that there is no room left in there for hatred, bigotry and violence. Violence makes big news and we neglect to praise the ones who work toward peace. May Your efforts of peace flourish and find fulfillment in dissolving the fogs of ignorance. Your actions are noble and commendable. If a great majority of us thought about peace, worked toward peace, cultivated the kernels of peace, hopefully there would be peace on earth. Divine Guidance comes from God alone and you, Dear Children of Peace, be assured, are guided by the Hand of God, as Prophet told his followers; adding, and if you are the instrument of evil, then doubt not that you are guided by the devil. Dreaming Peace/Peace on earth Humbly and gratefully I cherish and acknowledge the purity of love in your hearts, Beloved Students, hoping that other Muslims would learn from your example. Islam is not taught by preaching, but by leading a life of good actions, as our beloved Prophet did by the example of his noble character. Two large pearls of wisdom from the lips of our beloved Prophet: A man cannot be a Muslim till his heart and tongue are so. The creation is God's family; for its sustencance is for Him. Therefore the most beloved unto God is the person who doth good to God's family. You have received the gift of Power of Love, dear ones, share it with the world and see the wonder of transformation in its entirety. Contemplating love and peace

Appeal to Muslims

Muslims Go back into the pages of history And find out what the Prophet did WHEN Reviled, maligned, insulted Almost choked to death Feces of camel dumped over his shoulders Lampooned by poets on the walls of Kaaba Mocked by friends turned foes Just to name a few Learn from his ocean of love, compassion and forgivness. 'He is not strong who kills when in a position to do so.' Prophet said. 'Strong is he who can swallow the draught of anger and desist from killing even when at a great advantage.' This is only a trickle of his great love out of the ocean of his mass forgivness. No insults or personal injuries tarnished the noble character of the Prophet, and nothing can ever tarnish it,staying pure and fragrant much like the lily in a pond, its muddied waters soiling not the essence of its beauty. Again and again Prophet said: 'if you love God, love his creatures first.' Global appeal to universal message of love, peace and harmony in Islam and in all religions to all Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Please stop this cycle of hatred, bitterness and vengeance and jump-start the battery of love, then watch the domino-affect of bliss supreme and freedom inexpressible. If you love your beloved Prophet, dear Muslims, learn to love and forgive even the bitterest of your (so-called) enemies.

Ansar Dine's Divine Court of Shariah

Ansar Dine's man-made Shariah is a pothole of lies and distortion. Prophet Muhammad did not sanction the destruction of any site where the name of God was pronounced. The Sufi shrines and mosques destroyed by the Ansar's are the places of adoration and glorification of God as the emblem of remembrance of God much like the daily prayers as mentioned in Hadith by Mualana Muhammad. The recitation of raku from the Quran in remembrance of God, sajda and supplications to be closer to God. Prophet Muhammad was a man of peace and advocate of construction, not of destruction. If idolatary is the issue for Ansar in destroying holy sites, would they dare pound the Black Stone of Kaaba to dust where countless millions gather to kiss it with great reverence? Next victim of destruction, could it be the Prophet's tomb in Medina, the high green dome with gold and silver grill-work around green-draped bier where worshipers come to offer their prayers? This tomb does not meet the specifications of the Ansar's man-made holy Shariah, much taller than their required height of fifteen centimeters? Other tombs, the victims of Ansar's outrage, not meeting their specifications could be the tombs of Fatima, Abu Bakr and Omar and many more. Ansar Dine are slicing thin the pillar of Islam which is love, peace and harmony with the knife of their bigotry, ignorance and intolerance. Prophet Muhammad, for sure, would plead with them if he were alive to stop these vile acts of hypocrisy and violence. Urging them to heed his words and to understand the message of Quran with the purity of heart. Taking the liberty of sharing a few pearls of wisdom from the lips of the Prophet and from the heart of Quran, worthy of cherishing and preserving, especially for those who take pride in calling themselves Muslims. And when it is said unto them: Make not mischief on earth, they say: We are peacemakers only. Are not they indeed the mischief makers? But they prerceive not. Quran 2: 11-12 Those who have been driven from their homes unjustly only because they said: Our Lord is Allah. For had it not been for Allah's repelling some men by means of others, cloisters and churches and oratories and mosques, wherein the name of Allah is oft-mentioned, would assuredly would have been pulled down. Verily Allah helpeth one who helpeth Him. Lo, Allah is Storng, Almighty. Quran 22: 40 O ye who believe! Profane not Allah's monuments nor the sacred month nor the offerings nor the garlands, nor those repairing to the Sacred House, seeking the grace and pleasure of Allah. But when you have left the sacred territory, then go hunting (if you will) and let not your hatred of a folk who once stopped you going to the Invioable Place of Worship seduce you to transgress, but help ye one another unto righteousness and pious duty. Help not one another unto sin and transgresstion, but keep your duty to Allah. Lo, Allah is severe in punishment. Quran 5: 2 And seek the abode of the Hereafter in that which Allah hath given thee and neglect not thy portion of this world, and be thou kind even as Allah hath been kind to thee, and seek not corruption in the earth. Lo, Allah loveth not corrupters. Quran 28: 77 Wrong not mankind in their goods, and do not evil, making mischief in the earth. Quran 26: 183 Repel not those who call upon their Lord at morn and evening, seeking His Countenance. Thou art not accountable for them in aught, nor are they accountable for thee in aught that thou shouldst repel them and be of the wrong-doers. Quran 6: 52 Sayings of Prophet Muhammad: If you love your Creator, love your fellow beings first. All God's creatures are His family, and he is the most beloved of God who doeth most good to God's creatures. The proof of Muslim's sincerity is that he payeth no heed to that which is not his business. Feed the hungry and visit the sick, and free the captive if he is unjustly confined. Assist any person oppressed, whether Muslim or non-Muslim. Seek knowledge from cradle to the grave. Go in quest of knowledge even unto China. To spend more time in learning is better than spending more time in praying. It is better to teach knowledge one hour in the night than to pray the whole night. Kindness is a mark of faith. And whoever hath no kindness, hath no faith. The heart of Islam is its purity, and the Islam of tongue withholding it from fruitless words. No man is true in the truest sense of the word, but he who is true in word, in deed and in thought. The first verse of the first sura in Quran and a prayer of peace for all: 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 To thee 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 Thy anger Nor of those who go astray Quran 1: 1

Death of God by Syrians

The armed Syrians by slaughtering the innocent children have caused the death of God--brutally wounded and bled to death as repeatedly as each defenseless child being violated, murdered and mutilated. No one to guide the savages and barbarians drunk by the power of their own hatred and corruption. Who would, if any, plead with the Syrian madmen to practice the art of love and harmony while their God sits dazed and bleeding. Profound prayers from the hearts of the mothers might lend the balm of healing to the suffering God, giving It the strength to strike these lunatics with the rod of all-encompassing love, baptizing mankind with the understanding that life is created to be revered, not to be defiled or deformed. Since such power-hungry, rage-intoxicated men are guided by the shafts of vice, cruelty and ignorance, should we turn to the purity and innocnece of world children to join hands with us, praying that the wounds of God be healed quickly and that It may never suffer the agony of another death, so that It might bless the torches of tyranny as men with divine wisdom and eternal guidance to cherish and safeguard life as some sacred treasure, not ever to be violated by the gluttony of hatred, tyranny, vengeance. Please Precious All, fill our hearts with love for the world, for children. May this prayer flutter over Syria from cyberspace, pouring ether of peace, harmony and healing. With love from ocean to ocean, from continent to continent.

Rapist roams free in Morocco

A loony-land of world it is where rapists are blame-free and innocent victims of rape are forced to marry the rapists. A world of horrors where so-called honor is held dearer than God's truth of love and justice. Many replicas of Moroccan world exist in this potpourri of a world where women are raped, oppressed and tyrannized without any chinks of justice reaching their bereaved existence. Where man-made laws hold women inside the pincers of shame and blame while the men themselves wallow into the mire of their sins, lusts and crimes, shamelessly and guilt-lessly. A man rapes a young girl. The young girl is forced to marry the rapist. The rapist beats his wife--the victim of his rape. The young girl takes her life to escape the horror in living. Her own parents advise her to endure the brutality of the rapist-husband. Insanity of insanities! Is there no spark of sanity left in this world which can scald the Moroccan government for even the existence of such vile laws (offering impunity to the rapist if he marries his victim) rendered into effect most probably by rapists, murderers and madmen themselves. This world is not worthy of being called civilized as long as men perpetrate such heinous crimes against women and roam free. Uncivilized world indeed where justice takes a back seat while men go on killing, raping and tyrannizing at the dictates of their own whim or caprice. Honorable men all, the father who blames the judge for advising him to marry his daughter to the rapist? The venerable judge obeying the laws of the just government? Nameless, faceless men, burdened by the weight of false pride, false honor, hurling their daughters into the brothel of vice? The daughters whom they could neither protect from being raped, nor expose to the virtue of love, justice, healing. Man blaming man and the innocent teenager Amina Filali becoming the victim of horror and death without any fault of her own.
An appeal to the men and women of the world to get such laws abolished, rather erased from the map of this world.
A special appeal to the Moroccan Government to punish the rapist and to protect the victims of rape if men can't be restrained inside the cages of their own beastly instincts.
A prayer in remembrance of Amina Filali:
May we all discover the path to love, wisdom and understanding, becoming worthy of the name, human. May the parents of the victimized daughters find love and courage in their hearts to bring to justice the rapists who have harmed with the hope of healing the wounds of suffering for their daughters and for themselves.

A question and a request to the President of the United States Barack Obama

Sixteen innocent civilians in Kandahar, Afghanistan, including children, men and women killed by an American soldier and this is not the first time.
How would the world react if Afghani soldiers stationed in America went on a shooting spree into the houses of the civilians?
Dear President,
Why are civilians still being killed in Afghanistan and why few of the American soldiers are turning into cold-blooded murderers, defaming the name of US Army?

An appeal and request to you, Mr. President, to personally command your soldiers to behave nobly and ethically when stationed abroad.

May the seeds of love, peace and harmony be cultivated and nurtured in this world.
