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.
