I Have No Time

I knelt to pray but not for long
I had too much to do
I had to hurry and get to work
for bills would soon be due
So I knelt and said a hurried prayer
and jumped up off my knees

No time to give to souls in need

my soul could rest at ease
All day long I had no time to spread a word of cheer
No time to speak of God to friends
They would laugh at me I had fear
No time, no time, too much to do
That was my constant cry
My duty was now done
But at last the time, the time to die

I went before the Lord
I came I stood with downcast eyes

For in his hands God held a book
It was the book of life
God looked into his book and said
"Your name I cannot find”

I once was going to write it down
but never found the time"

So I got it !

I missed my post of January 21.

I had been on the bed with some bad viral infection from January 18 to 24, high fever, cold and severe cough.

Not yet fully recovered yet but not in bad shape either.

The Lesson if We Learn

And they call some of these people "retarded"...

Some years back, at the Seattle Special Olympics, 9 contestants, all physically or mentally disabled, assembled at the starting line for the 100-yard dash. At the gun, they all started out, not exactly in a dash, but with a relish to run the race to the finish and win.

One little boy stumbled on the asphalt, tumbled over and began to cry. The other 8 heard the boy cry. They slowed down and looked back. Then they all turned around and went back, every one of them.

One girl with Down's Syndrome bent down, kissed him and said: "This will make it better." Then all 9 linked arms and walked together to the finish line.

Everyone in the stadium stood, and the cheering went on for several minutes. Because what matters in this life is more than winning for ourselves. It is helping others win, even if it means slowing down and changing our course.

He left us stunned

Chaudhry Muhammad Asum, father of my elder daughter-in-law, passed away around 5:30 pm on January 11, 2006 at his home in Wah Cantt, Pakistan. May his soul rest in peace.

He was a self-made man who always did all his work. The day of his death, being Eid ul Adhha, he slaughtered, skinned two goats himself. After preparing meat of one, he had just started chopping meat of the second goat when he had heart attack and breathed his last within few minutes.

He was a kind father and grandfather. He is survived by his wife, a daughter, two sons and four grandchildren. He was born in Gurdaspur, India and migrated to Pakistan in 1947 at the age of 11 years with his one elder brother, one younger sister and two maternal uncles after having lost (killed by Hindu & Sikh militants) all his paternal and maternal relations including his parents and leaving all their property in India.

As luck would have it, the two uncles also died by the time Chaudhry Muhammad Asum passed F. Sc. (first 12 years of education). So, he was forced to seek employment at a very low level. He joined Shipyard at Karachi as an apprentice foundry man. With his self-study and hard work he came to be know as an expert in the knowledge of foundry practice. Several Renowned Industrialists of Pakistan engaged him as consultant for setting up large-size foundries.

Chaudhry Muhammad Asum was a peace loving person who enjoyed seeing others happy much more than getting something for himself. He drew his satisfaction from serving others and never demanded anything. During my over 13 years’ close acquaintance with him, In spite of my efforts, I was never able to know what he wished. He always said to me, “What you will do is my wish.”

May his soul rest in abundant peace in heavens and may God grant enough strength to His wife, sister, daughter (Ambrin Zakaria) and two sons (who are younger to Ambrin)

Fundamentalism in America

Writes Mr Naeem ul Haque

Although Islamic fundamentalism is blamed by many in the West for being responsible for all the chaos prevailing in the world today, a close look at Christian fundamentalism in America leads one to conclude that this powerful movement has become a very serious threat to world peace. In recent years, as a society, America has become more and more religious and started looking at political issues more from a theological perspective than ever before. This has enabled the Christian fundamentalists to define and influence a political agenda for America that raises new questions about America’s real intentions to dominate the world.

The influence of these fundamentalists on the American foreign policy has never been greater than now. Also known as the religious right, this powerful movement, dominated by Evangelists, has made the security and territorial integrity of Israel its main objective in seeking to influence the American foreign policy, and in pursuing this course, identifying Islam as its main adversary. This is a dangerous and unfortunate development which puts an ugly — and unnecessary — emphasis on the schisms between the two great religions of the world, Islam and Christianity.

One important reason for this is the Christian belief in the doctrine of pre-millennial dispensationalism. The doctrine says that mankind is now in the next-to-last dispensation, the church age, which will be followed by the millennium. The trigger for the millennium will be the second coming of Christ who will establish a worldwide kingdom centered in Jerusalem. First, however, Christ’s return will be marked by the Rapture in which the dead whom God wishes to redeem are resurrected and the living who are selected for salvation are swept from earth to heaven.

Those left behind will undergo the horrors of a seven-year tribulation which will culminate in the battle of Armageddon in Israel and the annihilation of the Antichrist. Christ will return amid the slaughter and establish his thousand-year rule. The re-establishment of the Jewish Temple on the site where the Al-Aqsa mosque is situated is also a pre-condition for the return of Christ under this doctrine. Hence, the religious significance of a Jewish state with sovereignty over Jerusalem.

In expressing their worldview, the leaders of the religious right in America have found an ideal partner in the neo-conservative politicians and thinkers who have dominated the two Bush administrations. Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Karl Rove, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Doug Feith and Bernard Lewis have led the shaping of the Bush administration’s dangerous and disastrous approach to tackling the perceived threat to American interests and domination of the world.

Under the combined influence of the religious right and the neo-conservatives the Bush administration has pursued the imperialistic notion of using military threat and action to pressurize and bring changes in the countries which oppose its policies.

The emergence of an independent Palestine with Israel withdrawing to pre-1967 borders remains unacceptable to the powerful Jewish-Christian fundamentalist-neo-conservative axis in America. As a result, President Bush has refused to commit himself to a timetable for Palestinian independence and has put aside steps to start talks on the roadmap to peace in the Middle East. This is highly irresponsible and regrettable.

In the aftermath of 9/11, the demonization of Islam by Christian fundamentalists has continued unabated in America. Well-known preachers like Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell and Franklin Graham have routinely been critical of and insulting to Islam and the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

Happy New Year

یہودی ریاست کا حق

" غیر تو غیر ہوۓ اپنوں کا بھی یارا نہ ہوا" کے مصداق کچھ پاکستانی بھائیوں کا بھی یہ خیال ہے کہ اسرائیل یہودیوں کا حق تھا یا یہ کہ چونکہ اسرائیل بن چکا ہے اس لئے اس حقیقت کو تسلیم کر لینا چاہیئے ۔

جہاں تک ریاست کے حق کا معاملہ ہے تو اس کی کچھ تو زمینی بنیاد ہونا چاہیئے ۔ میں نے اپنی تحاریر میں جو تاریخی حقائق بیان کئے ہیں وہ یہودی ریاست کی نفی کرتے ہیں ۔
دیکھئے میری تحاریر 14 نومبر 2005 ۔ 22 نومبر 2005 ۔ 30 نومبر 2005 اور 8 دسمبر 2005 ۔

یہ دستاویزی حقیقت میں بیان کر چکا ہوں کہ حضرت اسحاق علیہ السلام مسجد الاقصی میں عبادت کرتے رہے مگر حج کے لئے وہ مکّہ مکرمہ میں خانہ کعبہ ہی جاتے تھے ۔

حضرت یوسف علیہ السلام جب مصر کے بادشاہ بنے تو انہوں نے اپنے خاندان کے 31 اشخاص کو جن میں ان کے والد حضرت یعقوب علیہ السلام اور سارے بھائی بھی شامل تھے مصر بلا لیا تھا ۔ باقی بنی اسراءیل کے یہودی پہلے ہی دولت و ثروت کی خاطر فلسطین چھوڑ کر مصر میں آباد ہو گئے تھے اور مصریوں کے غلام تھے ۔ حضرت یعقوب علیہ السلام نے جاتے ہوۓ مسجد الاقصی فلسطینی باشندوں کے سپرد کر دی جو کہ نیک لوگ تھے مگر بنی اسراءیل میں سے نہیں تھے ۔

حضرت یوسف علیہ السلام کے 300 سال بعد حضرت موسی علیہ السلام مصر میں پیدا ہوۓ ۔ جس سرزمین پر یہودی اپنی میراث ہونے کا دعوی کرتے ہیں اسے انہوں نے اپنی مرضی سے حضرت موسی علیہ السلام سے 400 سال پیشتر خیر باد کہہ کر مصر میں دولت کی خاطر غلام بننا قبول کیا تھا

حضرت موسی علیہ السلام کے 40 سال بعد تک بنی اسراءیل صحراۓ سینائی میں بھٹکتے رہے یہانتک کہ ان کی اگلی نسل آ گئی جس میں حضرت داؤد علیہ السلام پیدا ہوۓ اور انہوں نے بھٹکی ہوئی بنی اسراءیل کو فلسطین جانے کو کہا ۔ میں لکھ چکا ہوں کہ کس طرح حضرت داؤد علیہ السلام فلسطین کے بادشاہ بنے ۔ اول تو حضرت داؤد علیہ السلام یہودی نہ تھے بلکہ قرآن شریف کے مطابق مسلم تھے لیکن اگر یہودیوں کی بات مان لی جاۓ تو بھی یہ حکومت اس وقت مکمل طور پر ختم ہو گئی تھی جب آج سے 2591 سال قبل بابل والوں نے اس پر قبضہ کر کے بمع عبادت گاہ سب کچھ مسمار کر دیا تھا اور بنی اسراءیل کو وہاں سے نکال کر اپنا غلام بنا لیا تھا ۔ (بابل عراق کے شمالی علاقہ میں ہے)

اب پچھلی صدی کی صورت حال کا جائزہ لیتے ہیں ۔ اس کی مثال اس طرح ہے ۔ کہ میرے پاس 100 ایکڑ زمین تھی ایک جابر اور طاقتور شخص نے اس میں سے 60 ایکڑ پر زبردستی قبضہ کر لیا ۔ اب صلح کرانے والے مجھے یہ مشورہ دیں کہ "میری 60 فیصد زمین پرظالم کا قبضہ ایک زمینی حقیقت ہے اس لئے میں اسے قبول کر لوں اور شکر کروں کہ 40 ایکڑ میرے پاس بچ گئی ہے ۔" کیا خوب انصاف ہوگا یہ ؟ ؟ ؟ اور پھر اس کی کیا ضمانت ہو گی کہ وہ طاقتور شخص مجھ سے باقی زمین نہیں چھینے گا ؟

ثابت یہی ہوتا ہے کہ فلسطین یا اس کا کوئی حصہ کبھی بھی یہودیوں کی مملکت نہیں تھی اور ریاست اسرائیل کا وجود جور و جبر کا مرہون منت ہے ۔اگر یہ اصول مان لیا جاۓ کہ چونکہ 1005 قبل مسیح میں حضرت داؤد علیہ السلام کی حکومت شروع ہونے سے وہاں بابل والوں کے قبضہ تک 400 سال یہودی فلسطین کے علاقہ میں رہے اس کی بنیاد پر یہودیوں کی ریاست وہاں ہونا چاہیئے تو پھر ہسپانیہ ۔ مشرقی یورپ۔ مغربی چین ۔ مغربی روس اور ہندوستان پر 800 سال یا اس سے زیادہ عرصہ مسلمانوں کی حکومت رہی ہے چنانچہ یہ سارے ملک مسلمانوں کے حوالے کر دیئے جائیں ۔ اسی طرح اور کئی ملکوں کا تنازع کھڑا ہو جاۓ گا ۔ کوئی عجب نہين کہ کل کو بھارت کے ہندو کہیں کہ پاکستان پر تو ہمارے اشوک کمار اور چندر گپت کی حکومت تھی اور اسے واپس لینے کے لئے بھارت پاکستان پر حملہ کردے اور امریکہ وغیرہ اسرائیل کے متذکّرہ اصول پر بھارت کا ساتھ دیں ۔

علامہ اقبال کا ایک شعر ہے
ہے خاک فلسطین پہ یہودی کا اگر حق
ہسپانیہ پہ حق نہیں کیوں اہل عرب کا
