Father and Daughter for Islam
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

Scroll down. That's my daughter, Nadrat, on my left. Look at her shirt. She is supporting freedom for Dr. Aafia Siddiqui who though innocent is in a US prison.

Nadrat is a marathoner and has run scores of marathons, including the Boston marathon, in support of people's causes such as Palestine, Black Lives Matter, women's rights, political prisoners and forgotten veterans.

There is hardly any Islamic and/or oppressed people's cause which she has not supported.

We are part of Jamaat al-Muslimeen which uses peaceful means to bring attention to the causes of oppressed and exploited people.

To succeed as a marathoner, she is very strict in matters of healthy life style and nutritious food.

We often meet at mosques to talk about Islam and to motivate each other in the Cause of Allah.

Pakistan: One Surprise after the Other

The Supreme Court of Pakistan declared that the Assembly cannot be dissolved and the no-Trust vote cannot be stopped [as Imran Khan had managed to do.]

Soon it appeared that Imran was no longer the Prime Minister, but he had a winning card.

Imran claimed that "foreign influence " and interference was behind his removal.

Imran addressed the nation by TV and claimed that he had received a threat from overseas and hinted that it was from USA.

The masses were seemingly waiting to hear criticism of USA at the national level;.

As we go the "press" there has been an outburst of protests [after Isha prayers] across Pakistan in every city and town, against USA and for Imran Khan.

A new Prime Minister is supposed to be inducted on Monday.

Probably Imran Khan will be a strong opposition leader.

The protests have spread to overseas Pakistani communities.

Some of the protests are denouncing the army chief, a very rare situation in Pakistan though he is known to be working for America..

Hadith of the Week

Narrated By
'Umar bin Al-Khattab, r.a.:

I heard Hisham bin Hakim bin Hizam reciting Surat-al-Furqan in a way different to that of mine. Allah's Apostle had taught it to me (in a different way). So, I was about to quarrel with him (during the prayer) but I waited till he finished, then I tied his garment round his neck and seized him by it and brought him to Allah's Apostle and said, "I have heard him reciting Surat-al-Furqan in a way different to the way you taught it to me."

The Prophet ordered me to release him and asked Hisham to recite it. When he recited it, Allah s Apostle said, "It was revealed in this way." He then asked me to recite it.

When I recited it, he said, "It was revealed in this way. The Qur'an has been revealed in seven different ways, so recite it in the way that is easier for you."

 Think About It

The betrayal of the role and the failed Muslims

Dr. Firoz Mahboob Kamal

Muslims claim to be the followers of Islam. They also claim to be the adherents to Prophet Muhammad (peace be umon him)'s teachings and legacy. But the path they have taken in politics, state building, education, judiciary, social policies, warfare and culture is not the same that the Prophet (peace be upon him) of Islam and his companions followed. There exist more dissimilarities than similarities between the two. In the path of the Prophet (peace be up on him)'s there were mass-scale Qur'anic literacy, Islamic state building, sharia based judiciary, jihad for the eradication of evil forces, and cosmopolitan Muslim unity. But these are not seen in the lives of today''s Muslims.

They have abandoned Islam's key political, ideological, and civilisational objective long ago. They have also ignored their own assigned role. They have invented their own convenient brand of Islam that restricts religious practices only within the rituals like five time prayers, month long fasting, hajj and zakat. Muslims' most obligatory responsibility to work as the viceroy of Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'ala is kept out of the focus or totally forgotten. Thus Muslims make a wide deviation from the Qur'anic roadmap -the siratul mustaqeem. This way they betray their own belief.

The downfall of Muslims owes to the defeat not only in military wars, but also in war of ideas. The European colonialists colonised not only Muslims' lands but also their minds. They invaded the conceptual premise and damaged it badly. They restricted the Qur'anic literacy cum guidance. Because of detachment from the Qur'anic guidance, they failed to identify Truth from falsehood. It also damages the understanding of their own role. As a result, jihad for eradicating the wrong and establishing the right -as was seen in Prophet (peace be upon him)'s life, has no place in their life. It also affected the traditional ulama. Most of these ulama consider such political struggle a tool of distraction from spiritual development and ibada. So they keep themselves away from engaging in politics. As if, politics is an exclusive domain of the secularists.

Setting direction for the state, framing its policies and laws, building its institutions, and guiding the people are the functions of politics. Hence, a person who is assigned to work as the viceroy of Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'ala, how can he or she keep himself and herself out of politics? And being out of politics, how can he or she play his or her civilizational role? Then, Islam's holistic objectives stay only in the pages of the Holy Qur'an. It also goes against the most important legacy of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). The Prophet (peace be upon him) engaged in politics, built a state, fought wars, engaged with foreign states, implemented social policies to execute his state-building as well as a civilisation-building role. How can one be a true Muslim without following such prophetic tradition? How can one play a civilizational role if his or her practices stay restricted only inside mosques, religious seminaries and prayer rooms?

Politics decides the fate of a people. It is not a secular profession for a Muslim; it is jihad -the highest ibada in Islam. The Islamic objective can attain its goal only through it. This is why the Prophet (peace be upon him) had to sit on the driving seat for 10 years. But, because of deep conceptual corruption, most religious scholars and common Muslims stay out of politics. As a result of political void, the alien or home-grown enemies of Islam could easily occupy the driving seats of almost every Muslim country.

Even when the Muslim lands were occupied one by one by the kuffar colonialists, the so-called ulama remained secluded inside mosques and religious seminaries. They didn't engage in obligatory jihad against the kuffar occupiers. As a result, the enemies of Islam could easily take control of the whole Muslim World without fighting a single significant war. They enjoyed a trouble-free period of about two hundred years to run their corruptive educational, cultural and ideological engineering to take people far away from Islam. Those kuffar colonialists have left; but most Muslim countries still remain occupied by the colonial educational products. This is indeed the most calamitous event in Muslim history.

For a non-Muslim, politics is a tool for grabbing power and pursuing the objectives of a person, party, tribe, class or nation. But for a Muslim, it is the holy jihad for fulfilling Islam's sublime civilizational goal. Hence, every Muslim man and woman must have a political role. For building a civilization, it needs laws and law-enforcement agencies. It also needs to frame policies on social welfare, education, culture, economics, defence, security, and many others. Since these are exclusively the functions of a state, how can one influence the state policies without engaging in politics? This is why the Prophet (peace be upon him) and his devout companions had to engage in politics till the last days of life. They fought wars, raised a state, and continuously expanded and strengthened it. The denial of politics is indeed the betrayal of the assigned role. It is also the betrayal of the Prophet (peace be upon him)'s legacy. It is also a treachery against Islam's humanising cum civilizational objective. How such a betrayal can be reconciled with the vision of Allah Sub'hana wa Ta'ala which commands that His deen should prevail over all forms of falsehood and fake religions?
