I know Muslims are worried about their Palaces in Paradise. As they should.

And I don’t blame them for doing that.

But my concern is — and always was — this earthly abode on which God placed me. And told me to go and take care of it. And to make it a better place for all.

My paradise is not my concern. Never was.

My paradise is in the hands of the one who made it and manages it.

And who dispenses it as he pleases. To whomsoever he pleases.

He gave me too much sense to worry about what he does — what is basically his business.

I have my hands full worrying about what I am supposed to do — right here on earth.

“Many people may think that the most important mission in life is to try and get into Paradise after death. And it is. Who can dispute that? But what about the challenge of turning this world itself into a piece of Paradise for all of Allah’s creation, and doing so:

  1. Using Allah’s guidance in the Qur’an; and
  2. Using the Sunnat or Way of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, as model and example?

Where does that fit into the calculations of these good people? And who is supposed to do that?” (Dr. Pasha)

Jannat – what people call Paradise or Heaven – doesn’t come cheap or easy. There is a lot of toil, tears and heartache that goes into earning it.

All those virgins the mealy-mouths and the mercenaries in the media and elsewhere rave about in relation to Islam and Muslims, they come with an astronomical price tag: a clean mind; a pure heart; a chaste life; and a mouth that is not putrid with spewing hate, trash-talk and vile propaganda against those who cannot defend themselves.
