Learning Never Stops: And Here Are Some Things to Learn Dr. Pasha All education is self-education. And it is no different in Islam. The Hadith talks about "Talabul Ilm." And that means "Active Seeking" of...
God's earth is ready for God. It has always been.
God raised up the Muslims to take his book, the Qur'an, to every home and heart on God's earth that needs it -- and which one does not.
For doing that, God called Muslims the Finest People on earth. He called them Khair Ummat.
Initially, Muslims did their work. They were quite active in taking Allah's book, and the message of Islam, to every home and heart that needs it. [...]
Dr. Pasha has issued a call to world Muslims to observe a World Day of Repentance this 'Aashoora, 1433.
Muslims are human and as humans they have done many things over the centuries that are contrary to the best interests of Islam, Muslims and the World. [...]
This A’ashura 2011, this month of Muharram 1433, this time thinking of the land of Karbala, I have a question.
What did American Revolutionary Patrick Henry and Islamic Revolutionary Husain have in common?
Love of Liberty! That is what!
And then I have another question.
What did America of the 18th Century and Karbala-Iraq of 7th Century have in common?
A shared struggle for Liberty and a determined revolt against Tyranny.
Henry cried: “Give me liberty or give me death!”
Husain embodied that message and paid the ultimate price for it – his life.
Henry said: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains or slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God!”
I just cannot shake off those words: “Forbid it, Almighty God!”
They haunt me wherever I go.
Henry went on: “I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
Husain chose death over slavery and bondage.
“Live free or die!” is the official motto of the American state of New Hampshire.
Husain decided to die free. [...]

"It was during the first few days of the month of Muharram that Moses (Alaihis Salam) set his followers free from the tyranny of the Pharaohs. He parted the sea with his staff and led his people to freedom in the Sinai desert. Also it was during the first few days of the month of Muharram, in the desert of Karbala in Iraq, that Husain, the beloved grandson of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, was martyred by people with Muslim names when he sought to free the Muslims – and the world – from the tyranny of dynastic rule and hereditary monarchy." (Dr. Pasha)
"The tragedy of Karbala is not just that people with Muslim names killed Husain, the beloved grandson of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, and mutilated his body, and that too in the month of Muharram during which all bloodshed is clearly forbidden. At the same time, the real Karbala Tragedy of our own time is the fact that Husain, while he continues to be a hero to the Shi’a, has become a stranger to much of the Sunni world." (Dr. Pasha)
