Pasha Hour International: Unlike Any!
What we want is not just for people coming to Pasha Hour International for "more" ideas.
Or for more listening pleasure.
It is for people to take the ideas -- every single idea -- from Pasha Hour International and working on it with all their might and with all their resources to take Islam forward: In their own life as well as in our world.
That is what Pasha Hour International went on air to achieve. And that is what Pasha Hour International continues to be on the air to achieve.
Muslims Just Don't Get It, Do They?
Muslims just don't get it, do they?
What is happening in Egypt these days -- and it has been happening there for a very long time -- is an attempt to wipe out Islam and turn the so-called Middle East into a slave plantation.
More than it already is.
They are trying to do in the beginning of the 21st century the same thing to Islam and Muslims using thugs like Sisi, Amr Musa, Baradei and others that they did to Islam and Muslims in the beginning of the 20th Century using Lawrence of Arabia, Faisal and other thugs.
Same actors, same Alliance of Evil, same game, same purpose, same results.
Everyone knows this. Only, those who call themselves Muslims haven't a clue about what is going on. Or even what planet they are on.
Their answer to the problem: Make a couple of extra Hajj and things will be Hunky-Dory.
Or top that off with more "Halal" Meat and "Islamic" Finance!
What Muslims Do to Muslims!
Muslims always complain about what non-Muslims do to Muslims. Grievance and protest are thriving business among Muslims the world over.
But when did you ever see or hear Muslims complain or protest about what Muslims themselves do to Muslims?
Especially, Muslim leaders, both secular and so-called religious.
You don't know what I am talking about? To get enlightenment, you need to look no further than that Arch-Traitor General Sisi of Egypt and those Mega-Culprits Dr. Tayyib of Al-Azhar and Former Mufti of Egypt, Dr. Gomah.
The three of them, together, wiped out the most legitimate and thriving Egyptian Democracy, the first in all of Egyptian history, and made mincemeat of innocent unarmed civilian protestors all over the land of Egypt, including women and children.
And yet, not one whine or whimper from Muslims anywhere!
As for what corrupt and profligate Muslim Shaikhdoms and Kingdoms rolling in ill-gotten Muslim wealth do to Muslims, you will never hear a squeak from any Muslim, leader or commoner.
And yet Muslims, all over the world, run around crying and complaining why Allah does not come to their aid and why he does not change their condition.
The answer is right there in the Qur'an, right before their eyes:
"Allah does not change the condition of a people till they
themselves take steps and set about changing their condition."
Here Comes Trouble
Now, don’t hold me to any of this. But I have to say what I have to say. Someone has to, don’t you think?
Muslims compulsively, and in many cases without the least idea what they are doing, hate Karl Marx, the German ideologue, whose philosophy inspired the bloody Russian and Chinese revolutions and caused Communism to mushroom up everywhere around the world.
It is attributed to Marx that he said that “Religion is the opium of the people.” Of course, you are on your own in verifying and validating this quote.
But what I am trying to say is that no one condemns this thought by Marx more vociferously than Muslims. However, what many Muslims don’t take the time or the trouble to realize is that they – I mean Muslims – are among the most OD’d people in the world on that opiate, on “religion,” I mean.
When do they ever study the great thinkers and revolutionaries of the world -- no matter what their religion or affiliation or political leaning? And whether or not they agree with them?
That is how opaque, common and colossal is the state of Muslim ignorance around the world: whether it is about their own "religion," or about the world in which they must live and practice their "religion."
Most Muslims don't even bother to ask if Islam is even a “religion” to begin with, as the world knows and understands that term “religion.”
That is what overdosing on a drug like opium would do to anyone: Numb them to themselves as well as to the reality around them.
And when it comes to reality, take it from me, no one has a more frayed or fragile sense of reality than Muslims.
Dr. Pasha to Muslims
People, don't run and hide in man-made "Islam" from real Islam.
For, that is what many Muslims do: take refuge in what they think is Islam from what really is Islam.
That tragic Muslim phenomenon practically explains almost all of what is wrong with the Muslims today.
And no tragedy could be greater than the fact that so many Muslims so often run after every false promise of the "religion" of Islam flaunted before them by self-serving Muslim propagandists and activists; and in doing this, they leave behind the Deen of Islam that came to them from Allah; while Allah's Deen of Islam stands behind alone, abandoned and an utter stranger in their midst, and watches them with pity and sorrow.
A-laisa Minkum Rajulun Rasheed, it seems to say: Is there not one decent man among you?
When Muslims Refused to Be Third Raters
Shaikh Quilliam, England; Lord Headley Al-Farouq (Ireland) in Islamic Review; Freedom Fighter and Gandhi colleague Mowlana Muhammad Ali Johar in Comrade in British India; scholar and Qur'an translator Allama Yusuf Ali, and others.
Allah bless them all.
Whatever else they all were, or were not, they certainly were not third-raters, as so many of us, Muslims of today, have or threaten to become.
And then some of the same third-raters among us have the gall to preach to the world that Islam is the best there is and that it is a first-rate product.
But the all-important question Muslims must answer is this: Why should a first-rate non-Muslim accept that argument about Islam from a third-rate Muslim?
As for guiding people to Islam, Allah, of course, guides whomever he wishes to his path, even if it is through a very flawed and less-than-stellar Muslim.
