“Want to build a better world? Here is what we need to do — every single one of us:

  • Love our neighbours; and our societies and our communities; and Muslims and non-Muslims — and the whole world.
  • Elect the best rulers we can.
  • Help our governments to perform their legitimate, lawful and constitutional roles in serving the best interests of our people — and of all of humanity everywhere.
  • Hold our elected officials accountable.
  • Love God.
  • Work tirelessly to take the Qur’an to every home and heart that needs it — and which one does not.

And bear in mind that Islam is not — and cannot be — defeated from outside, it is always eaten up from inside — by common mercenaries; by seekers of power, position, wealth, name and fame; and by sundry traitors and fools.

I am also tempted to say, Islam is not for idiots, but I will save it for another day!” (Dr. Pasha)

“Be responsible for everyone and everything – from the nearest to the farthest neighbour. And all humanity is your neighbours. From the closest relative to the one who is a total stranger and only related to you through the common drop of Adam’s blood. For, that is what humanity is: your blood family.

Learn to care for them; learn to be accountable for them and to them; work for them; sacrifice and suffer for them. Learn to treat all universe as one integrated unit. You will then know what it is to be a Muslim. For, that is what Islam is all about! And you will then be on the verge of knowing God, your creator.” (Dr. Pasha)
