“I don’t know if this is called a redundancy or a tautology, or even gibberish, but it strikes me that there is no fool more dangerous than an ignorant fool.

From an Islamic perspective, ignorance is not bliss.

In Islam, there is no equivalency between knowledge and ignorance: Hal yastawilladheena ya’lamoona walladheena laa ya’lamoon, the Qur’an asks.” (Dr. Pasha)

“Allah’s law is, the more work you do, and the more productive you are, and the more thankful you are to God Almighty, the more he gives you: time, energy, resources, everything. That is called Barakat.

On the other hand, the more you slack off or complain, and the more excuses you make, the more he throws you at the mercy of your own excuses. Your complaints and excuses then assume a life of their own and turn into a self-fulfilling prophesy. I have seen that happen over and over.”  (Dr. Pasha)

“There are those who say, “Time, time, time … If we had more time, we would have done this; we would have done that; and we would have done something else,” they say. “If we had time,” they say, “We would have taken care of a lot of things that we didn’t have time to take care of.”

I say to them, your problem is not time, for, you had all the time you were supposed to have in the Divine Calculus. Your problem is that you wasted all the time God gave you, however much it was.

And now you are doing the same with whatever time you have been allocated right now: squandering and wasting it. And on top of that, you are spending part or all of that time doing something worse: second-guessing and blaming God Almighty.

So, I would say to them: “Ladies & Gentlemen: Your problem is sense, as in common sense – and not time. So get on with your life and do the best you can and stop blaming God.”” (Dr. Pasha)

“I suspect some Muslims think they have an iron-clad alibi in life. They feel they can do any foolish thing they want, and when things don’t turn out right, they can always blame it on God. And don’t think it is only the Muslims who do that.” (Dr. Pasha)
