How We Came To Be:
An Explanation of Who We Are, and Why We Do What We Do, and Why We Do Things the Way We Do!
(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur'an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --
And which One Does Not?)
The Website WWW.IslamicSolutions.Com, and its radio cousin Pasha Hour International -- Live From America: A Program about Islam, Muslims and the World, were not born in a vacuum.
They were born through the pain of a thousand holocausts in practically every part of the world over the past so many decades.
We are saying "decades," because how far back will you go in history to find an oasis of peace and security and tranquility?
How many centuries? Or how many millennia?
For, the fact is, outside the peace and security that Islam, under Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, gave the world, the world did not know what peace was or security was.
Or what human equality was.
Or even what some of the most elementary human rights were.
Outside the clear-cut Aayaat of the Noble Qur'an, the world did not understand then, and the world does not understand now, what even a simple idea like Equal Justice for All meant.
The United Nations Human Rights Charter, the Geneva Conventions, the Bill of Rights in the American Constitution, and the very concept of "We The People" in the Constitution, they all borrowed heavily from the teachings of the Qur'an, whether they acknowledge that fact or not.
And nothing and no one even approaches the great heights of the Sirat of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, when it comes to embodying these ideals in their persons, or practicing them in their lives, or implementing them in their societies.
How many people even know how many tens of thousands of so-called Anti-Muslim "Riots" have taken place throughout India?
The shame of it all is that to this day, these planned, organized and sponsored, sadistic genocidal pogroms and massacres are referred to as "Riots" -- both in the media and by the people.
These riots and massacres and pogroms are not recent phenomena. They did not start today or yesterday. They started even before the Indian Subcontinent was partitioned into India and Pakistan.
How many people know how the Black people in America have been dealing with the scourge of slavery and its equally dark aftermath for the past 400 years?
How many people know or understand the sheer enormity and brutality of the horrors of the two so-called world wars?
Or what the Nazis did to the Jews, the Gypsies and the Russians?
Or, how barbarically the victorious Allies treated the conquered German people?
Or what unspeakable miseries the Israelis have been visiting upon the Palestinians all these past six decades?
Or what unbelievable suffering the two atom bombs might have inflicted on the Japanese people toward the end of World War II? Or the atrocities the Japanese perpetrated on the Chinese and other occupied people?
How many people truly appreciate the magnitude of the so-called Refugee Problem in the Middle East today? Who started it?
Whose money and whose munitions and arms are sustaining the carnage that is raging throughout the so-called Muslim world? Who is bombing and blasting women and children and mud huts and thatched roofs out of existence in some of most primitive and defenseless of all societies?
How many people know or care that one Muslim nation and society after another has been decimated and reduced to ashes over the past 30 or 40 years by some of the most powerful and wealthy nations around the world?
How many people really know or understand any of these things?
And then how many people even bother to try and understand the role of the Muslim individuals, organizations, parties and governments in the enactment and perpetuation of these horrors around the world?
Does anyone even think or care about the role of Muslim politicians in all this?
And of Muslim wealth, much of it ill-gotten and plundered from public coffers?
And of Muslim dictators of every hue and shade from civilian to royal to feudal to military to mercenary?
And of Muslim leaders of every stripe, both religious and secular?
What is their role in filling today's world with all the Fasaad and Zulm and corruption and injustice that are so rampant these days everywhere?
Who is the perpetrator and who is the victim?
And what is the truth about any or all these things?
How many people even care about truth and facts any more?
And what is the solution to any of these things? And who is proposing what kind of solution? And what is the track record of any of their ideas in the past?
And who are the people and what are the institutions and organizations that are standing up for truth and for justice?
And what are the governments that advocate and champion the cause of truth and justice?
You ask these questions and then you will know why and how the Devil has us all by the throat.
It was not for nothing that we developed our theory of human nature and behavior that states:
To Be Human Can Be Hazardous to Your Health.
But the Qur'an had spoken much more eloquently and clearly eternities before we woke up to this reality about who the human beings are and how they behave.
In no more than four or five words, depending on how you count, the Qur'an articulates most concisely and succinctly, what the entire world knows and witnesses but cannot fully comprehend or clearly express or successfully deal with:
Innal Insaana La-Fi Khusr!
"What a bunch of losers human beings are!"
Human history, including the most troubled histories of places like India or America or Europe, is a real-time Tafseer of this Aayat Karimah.
