Islam Aptitude Test (IAT): Assignment of the Day Dr. Pasha (Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time. Trying to Take the Qur'an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --...
When people see Zulm and say nothing. When so-called Pragmatic Considerations dull human conscience and silence human tongues, they are removing all stops from the path of Allah's Adhaab from swooping down on them and on Allah's world. Speaking up against what you...
Kafirs are those who knowingly and willfully deny and reject God. The mindset from which such a total denial and rejection of God proceeds carries all kinds of concomitants and attachments with it. And all kinds...
Truth is what it is. Often it is not self-evident, which makes it necessary we pursue it actively and in a focused way. Modern times have a way of misnomering and trivializing things, including this highly exalted and...
The Bible says "Wages of Sin Is Death."
But from the perspective of the Qur'an, wages of Truthcould also be death.
Islam is Truth.
And God is Truth.
Qur'an uses the expression Haqq.
And Allah's name is Haqq.
So, when you pursue truth; and you speak truth; and you try to live by truth, you may rub a lot of people the wrong way.
You may pose a threat to the existing power structure -- to the status quo as it were.
It causes all kinds of anxiety -- economic, political, psychological, professional, financial, military and all other kinds -- to all kinds of people.
And the forces of Status Quo galvanize themselves and will want to stop you, punish you and prevent your nefarious influence from spreading to others. They would want to limit damage and protect themselves and their interests.
So, they will hound and harass you; impose all kinds of sanctions on you; and, if they can and must, they will seek to physically eliminate you.
Hang you; shoot you; blow you up; poison you; give you cancer; toss you in the ocean alive from an airplane.
The Qur'an calls these things Sunnatullah -- the way of God Almighty.
Your reward for going through these things is Jannat.
And possibly Ridwaanullah!
So, those who say they Work for Allah, must wake up -- and smell the colors and fragrance of Jannat.
Islam is from God. And Non-Islam is from the Devil.
The Devil -- Shaitan -- and his ilk fight Islam.
They are the followers of falsehood and worshipers of the Devil.
They are the breakers of the Biblical Commandments.
Their life is a celebration of the Seven Deadly Sins that the Bible talks about.
They worship all kinds of gods besides God, which is a direct violation of the First Commandment in the Bible.
Their methodology is one of falsehood: It is a methodology of Lies and Deceit.
Whereas the methodology of Islam is Truth: Haq and Sidq.
The objective of Islam is Adl -- justice and fairness and equity for all people all over the world.
The objective of non-Islam is Zulm and Udwaan: oppression; aggression; and exploitation of others and inflicting of harm on them.
In a confused and confusing world, you can tell which is which, and who is who, by trying to find out who is telling the truth and who is not. And who is standing up for justice and fairness for all and who is not.
It is that simple.
For, trying to establish Justice, just for this or that group, as opposed to everyone everywhere, and trying to do so using a methodology of coercion, force, intimidation, blackmail, deception, enticement, entrapment, manipulation and lies, will not only be a wasted effort, it will actually be counterproductive.
For, it will be the Greatest Injustice of All: against God as well as against God’s Creation.
The Qur’an calls it Zulm.

A TWO-HOUR QUR’AN PROGRAM WITH DR. PASHA
Truth is what Islam is all about. And Islam calls it Al-Haqq.
Therefore, commitment to the pursuit, discovery, verification and validation of truth, and to the fearless telling and sharing of truth with the world, is the divine formula for personal Najaat in the next world and for the success of what we call Da’wah in this world.
