25th OF DECEMBER: Remembering Jesus And Jinnah.

25th December Is A Reminder Of
Teachings of Jesus
Mohammad Ali Jinnah

Let’s Make Them A Part Of
New Year’s Resolution!

 (M. Javed Naseem)

 “Failure is a word unknown to me.”
– Quaid-e-Azam

“I should like to give a warning to the landlords
and capitalists who have flourished at our expense
by a system which is so vicious, which is so wicked
and which makes them so selfish that it is difficult
to reason with them. The exploitation of the masses
has gone into their blood. They have forgotten
the lessons of Islam.”
-- Quaid-e-Azam


Happy holidays everybody! Today is 25th of December. The world knows this day as the birthday of Jesus Christ (although most people and scholars agree that it is not the correct date). In Asia, the people of the sub-continent (Pakistan & India) know it as the birthday of Mohammad Ali Jinnah (the Quaid-e-Azam), the founding father of Pakistan (and they know that it’s the correct date).

A Christian activist asks:
Santa Claus: The Ultimate in Fake News (a.k.a. What The F… Are We Celebrating?)

“Why do we persist with the Santa Claus mythology? Do we really need all the lies and ‘naughty/nice’ behavioral rewarding to have a meaningful annual midwinter celebration? Instead of fiction, it is time instead to celebrate the true magic and wonder around us”, says Ethan Indigo Smith (a writer/activist at the Wake Up World).

For children who have just learned or realized the truth, the lie is everywhere we look at Christmas time. It’s at home, in schools, on the news; even the local weather forecasters cooperate with powerful military institutions like NORAD (the North American Aerospace Defense Command) lie to us! And we play along without a moment to process our loss, lest we poop the party for younger, still-ignorant children. (Never mind that ours is the only culture on Earth to base its major holy-day on a foundation of pure fictional fabrication, forgoing reality to celebrate the bounty of a deliberately false patriarch.)
In a sense the Santa Claus story is the biggest series of lies on the planet — the mother of all ‘fake news’ — because most of the white western world eats up and regurgitates it all cyclically. We all know it’s a lie, but most of us don’t question its effect on our children’s psychological and spiritual development. The Santa Claus story is not the worst of the big lies, not by far; especially when compared to the lies that underpin the financial, political and education systems, energy and resources, nuclear experimentation, and countless other industries that destroy our Earth Mother; or to the lies that inspire people to kill on behalf of religious, or national institutions. But it is one of the big lies in our lives, and it does have an effect– and arguably, a purpose.

Jesus Christ was known for many of his miracles that gave new life to scores of people. He gave them direction with the Divine support as he was a Prophet of God. People were so impressed that, out of love and respect, they falsely proclaimed him as son of God and then as God, and worshipped him.
Mohammad Ali Jinnah was not a prophet but he did show the world his miracle. He single-handedly carved Pakistan out of the world map – a homeland for millions of Muslims of India. And that also happened with the Divine support as many Mullahs of India opposed him for one reason or the other. But most Muslims adored him and were so impressed that, out of love and respect, they called him “Quaid-e-Azam” (the great leader), and justly so! 

Commemorating the occasion, it is only befitting that I share with you some beautiful quotes of the above mentioned great personalities of human history.

Jesus Christ said:

1-Corinthians 10:24
“None of you should be looking out for your own interests, but for the interests of others.”

Romans 12:13
“Share your belongings with your needy fellow Christians, and open your homes to strangers.”

1-John 3:17
“Rich people who see a brother or sister in need, yet close their hearts against them, cannot claim that they love God.”

Luke 4:18-19
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has chosen me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind; to set free the oppressed and announce that the time has come when the Lord will save his people.”

James 2:15-16
“Suppose there are brothers or sisters who need clothes and don’t have enough to eat. What good is there in your saying to them, ‘God bless you! Keep warm and eat well!’ – if you don’t give them the necessities of life?”

Luke 18:29
"You know the commandments: 'Do not commit adultery; do not murder; do not steal; do not bear false witness; honor your father and mother!’”

James 4:1
“What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members?”

1-Peter 2:17
“Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king!”

Ephesians 6:1-3
“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. Honor your father and mother (which is the first commandment with a promise), so that it may be well with you, and that you may live long on the earth.”

2-Timothy 3:1-2
“But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy.”

1-Timothy 5:1-2
“Do not sharply rebuke an older man, but rather appeal to him as a father, to the younger men as brothers, the older women as mothers, and the younger women as sisters, in all purity.”

Galatians 5:22-23
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.”

Quaid-e-Azam (Mohammad Ali Jinnah) said:

“No nation can rise to the height of glory unless your women are side by side with you.”
“No struggle can ever succeed without women participating side by side with men.”

“If we want to make this great State of Pakistan
happy and prosperous we should wholly and
solely concentrate on the well-being of the people,
and especially of the masses and the poor.”
-- Quaid-e-Azam


“Think 100 times before you take a decision, but once that decision is taken, stand by it as one man.”

“With faith, discipline and selfless devotion to duty, there is nothing worthwhile that you cannot achieve.”

“Expect the best, prepare for the worst.”

“You have to stand guard over the development
and maintenance of Islamic democracy, Islamic
social justice and the equality of mankind
in your own native soil.”
-- Quaid-e-Azam


“Islam expect every Muslim to do this duty, and if we realize our responsibility time will come soon when we shall justify ourselves worthy of a glorious past.”

“You will no doubt agree with me that the first duty of a government is to maintain law and order, so that the life, property, and religious beliefs of its subjects are fully protected by the State…..…if we want to make this great State of Pakistan happy and prosperous we should wholly and solely concentrate on the well-being of the people, and especially of the masses and the poor.”

“That freedom can never be attained by a nation without suffering and sacrifice has been amply borne out by the recent tragic happenings in this subcontinent.”

“The great majority of us are Muslims. We follow the teachings of the Prophet Mohammed (pbuh). We are members of the brotherhood of Islam in which all are equal in rights, dignity and self-respect. Consequently, we have a special and a very deep sense of unity. But make no mistake: Pakistan is not a theocracy or anything like it.”

“The adoption of Western economic theory
and practice will not help us in achieving our
goal of creating a happy and contented people.
We must work our destiny in our own way
and present to the world an economic system
based on the true Islamic concept of equality
of manhood and social justice”
-- Quaid-e-Azam
“Yet this is a truth people so easily seem to forget and begin to prize local, sectional or provincial interests above and regardless of the national interests. It naturally pains me to find the curse of provincialism holding sway over any section of Pakistan. Pakistan must be rid of this evil.”

“We must get Pakistan at any cost. For it we live and for it we will die. The Musalmans have to struggle and struggle hard for their honorable existence…you must work and work hard. By doing so you will contribute substantially not only to the honour of ten corers of Muslims but to the crystallization of a free Muslim state of Pakistan where Muslims will be able to offer the ideology of Islamic rule”

“The Government can only have for its
aim one objective – how to serve the people,
how to devise ways and means for their
welfare, for their betterment.”
-- Quaid-e-Azam

“If we are to make any real, speedy and substantial progress, we must bring our educational policy and program on the lines suited to the genius of our people, consonant with our history and culture, and having regard to the modern conditions and vast development that have taken place all over the world... What we have to do is to mobilize our people and build up the character of our future generation……In short, we have to build up the character of our future generations which means highest sense of honor, integrity, selfless service to the nation, and sense of responsibility, and we have to see that they are fully qualified or equipped to play their part in the various branches of economic life in a manner which will do honor to Pakistan”

“Brotherhood, equality, and fraternity of man – these are all the basic points of our religion, culture and civilization and we fought for Pakistan because there was a danger of the denial of these human rights in the Subcontinent.”

LOVE OF THIS WORLD: Don't Sell Your Hereafter For Petty Gains!

Don’t Sell Your Hereafter
For Material Gains!

The Only Hurdle Between
You And Paradise
Is the Love of This World

(M. Javed Naseem)

أُولَـٰئِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱشْتَرَوُاْ ٱلْحَيَاةَ ٱلدُّنْيَا بِٱلآخِرَةِ
فَلاَ يُخَفَّفُ عَنْهُمُ ٱلْعَذَابُ وَلاَ هُمْ يُنصَرُونَ
“These are the people who buy the life
of this world at the price of the Hereafter.
Their penalty shall not be lightened,
nor shall they be helped.”
(al-Quran 2:86)

The race is on – a very vicious race for the worldly possessions. We are trying to accumulate as much of material things (including money) as possible – and as quickly as possible too – by all means (Halal or Haraam). In the process we don’t care about how much misery, pain, trouble and discomfort we bring to others – as long as it is not happening to us. And on top of it, every one of us is complaining about the corruption and injustice in the world, as if only others are responsible for that.

We don’t practice caring and sharing any more!
We have embraced materialism and abandoned
humanity. We have replaced compassion with
selfishness. The main reason for corruption and
injustice in the world is our ‘love of this world’.


There is a very beautiful small chapter (Surah) in the Quran and it is called at-Takathur (or al-Takassur). It has only 8 short verses. In the very first verse Allah wakes you up and shakes you up by saying:

“The mutual rivalry for piling up (the good things
of this world) diverts you (from the more serious
things), until you visit the graves…”

Allah-o-Akbar! How clear a warning! The race for the material world has diverted our attention, our focus and our efforts from the real goal – to achieve Paradise by pleasing the Lord Almighty. We are wasting our talents and energies on superficial things and then we complain that we have no peace of mind. We have only stress, tension and depression. We survive on drugs and medication. And most of us keep doing that till we hit the grave.

We should not forget that we are part of the Creation and there is the Supreme Creator above Who is running the show. If the creation is disconnected from its creator, it dies. Simple as that! You cannot separate the unit from the sum. We cannot survive if we are disconnected from our Creator, especially when the Creator has warned us: “Remember Me, I’ll remember you!”

It looks like that despite all the knowledge, guidance and information easily available to us, we still don’t understand our purpose of life. This world is a temporary phase of our short journey. We are in transit. Our destination is Paradise in the Hereafter. We are given an opportunity here to work on our objective. Time is short and art is long! But most of us don’t seem to realize it.

وَمَا ٱلْحَيَاةُ ٱلدُّنْيَآ إِلاَّ لَعِبٌ وَلَهْوٌ وَلَلدَّارُ
ٱلآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لِّلَّذِينَ يَتَّقُونَ أَفَلاَ تَعْقِلُونَ
“What is the life of this world but play and
amusement? But best is the home in the
Hereafter, for those who are righteous.
Will you not then understand?”
(al-Quran 6:32)

That’s a good reminder, but for those who understand! Most of us are slaves of our own desires and temptations. We are chasing the pleasures of this world and have forgotten  that one day we would be buried under tons of dust. That day can come any time! And what is worse than answering questions about this life on the Day of Resurrection?. Now, let’s get back to the main message of Surah At-Takathur.

Surah At-Takathur (Al-Takassur)
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
أَلْهَاكُمُ ٱلتَّكَّاثُرُ حَتَّىٰ زُرْتُمُ ٱلْمَقَابِرَ كَلاَّ سَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ
ثُمَّ كَلاَّ سَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ كَلاَّ لَوْ تَعْلَمُونَ عِلْمَ ٱلْيَقِين
لَتَرَوُنَّ ٱلْجَحِيمَ ثُمَّ لَتَرَوُنَّهَا عَيْنَ ٱلْيَقِينِ
ثُمَّ لَتُسْأَلُنَّ يَوْمَئِذٍ عَنِ ٱلنَّعِيمِ
“The mutual rivalry for piling up (the good things
of this world) diverts you (from the more serious
things), until you visit the graves. But nay, you
soon shall know (the reality). Again, you soon
shall know! Nay, were you to know with certainty
of mind, (you would beware!) You shall certainly
see Hellfire! Again, you shall see it with certainty
of sight! Then, shall you be questioned
that Day about the joy (you indulged in!).”
(al-Quran 102:1-8)

Similar message was delivered to every nation belonging to every Prophet of God in the old. But only a few paid heed. Most of them went astray.

Jesus (pbuh) Says:

James 4:4
“You adulterous people! Don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.”

1 John 2:17)
“The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.”

Titus 2:11-12
“For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age.”

1 John 3:1
“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called ‘children of God’! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him.”

Mark 8:36
“What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?”

John 16:33
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

1 Timothy 6:7-8
“For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.”

Romans 12:2
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

1 John 2:15
“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.”

1 Corinthians 3:18
“Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise.”

James 1:27
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: To look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

1 John 2:16
“For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life -- comes not from the Father but from the world.”

Muhammad (s.a.w.) Says:

Hadith No.1 (Simple Living)
(Note: This is an excerpt from a long narration.)
Narrated Ibn Abbas: “For the whole year I had the desire to ask Umar bin Al-Khattab regarding the explanation of a verse (in Surah Al-Tahrim) but I could not ask him because … Allah's Apostle smiled while he was lying on a mat made of palm-tree leaves with nothing between him and the mat. Underneath his head there was a leather pillow stuffed with palm fibers, and leaves of a saut tree were piled at his feet, and above his head hung a few water skins. On seeing the marks of the mat imprinted on his side, I wept. He said.' 'Why are you weeping?' I replied, "O Allah's Apostle! Caesar and Khosrau are leading the life (i.e. luxurious life) while you, being Allah's Apostle, are living as a destitute". The Prophet (s.a.w.) replied. 'Won't you be satisfied that they enjoy this world and we the Hereafter?'” -- (Bukhari, Book 60, No. 435).

Hadith No.2 (Desires & Temptation)
Narrated Abu Huraira: “I heard Allah's Apostle saying, “the heart of an old man remains young in two respects, i.e., his love for the world (its wealth, desires, amusements and luxuries) and his incessant hope." -- (Bukhari, Book 76, No. 429).

Hadith No.3 (Greed & Race For Materialism)
Narrated Sahl bin Saad: “I heard Ibn Zubair who was on the pulpit at Mecca, delivering a sermon, saying: O men! The Prophet used to say, ‘If the son of Adam were given a valley full of gold, he would love to have a second one; and if he were given the second one, he would love to have a third, for nothing fills the belly of Adam's son except dust. And Allah forgives he who repents to Him." Ubai said, "We considered this as a saying from the Quran till the Sura (beginning with) ' the mutual rivalry for piling up of worldly things diverts you..' (al-Takassur or Takathur) was revealed." -- (Bukhari, Book 76, No. 446).

And Allah Says:
فَإِذَا قَضَيْتُمْ مَّنَاسِكَكُمْ فَٱذْكُرُواْ ٱللَّهَ كَذِكْرِكُمْ آبَآءَكُمْ أَوْ أَشَدَّ ذِكْراً
فَمِنَ ٱلنَّاسِ مَن يَقُولُ رَبَّنَآ آتِنَا فِى ٱلدُّنْيَا وَمَا لَهُ فِى ٱلآخِرَةِ مِنْ خَلاَقٍ
وِمِنْهُمْ مَّن يَقُولُ رَبَّنَآ آتِنَا فِى ٱلدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةً
وَفِى ٱلآخِرَةِ حَسَنَةً وَقِنَا عَذَابَ ٱلنَّارِ
“So when you have accomplished your holy
rites, celebrate the praises of Allah, as you
used to celebrate the praises of your fathers,
with far more heart and soul. There are men
who say: "Our Lord! Give us (your bounties)
in this world!" but they will have no portion
in the Hereafter. And there are men who say:
"Our Lord! Give us good in this world and
good in the Hereafter, and protect us from
the torment of the Hellfire!"
(al-Quran 2:200-201)

EID-E-MILAD: Follow Prophet's Teachings & Lifestyle!


The Best Way To Celebrate
Prophet’s Birthday Is To Follow
His Teachings And Lifestyle

Don’t Compete With Christmas
Which Is A Pagan Tradition!

(M. Javed Naseem)

مَّنْ يُطِعِ ٱلرَّسُولَ فَقَدْ أَطَاعَ ٱللَّه
“He who obeys the Messenger, obeys Allah. …”
(al-Quran 4:80)

قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ ٱللَّهَ فَٱتَّبِعُونِى يُحْبِبْكُمُ ٱللَّهُ
وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَٱللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ
“Say (O Muhammad): "If you do love Allah,
follow me! Allah will love you and forgive your
sins, for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful."
(al-Quran 3:31)

The third month of the Islamic calendar is called Rabi-al-Awwal (Rabi-I) and its significance is augmented by the fact that it’s the month of Prophet Muhammad’s (s.a.w.) birth. People all over the Muslim world are busy in festive activities, being part of the celebrations. The best way to pay homage to the Prophet (s.a.w.) is to follow his teachings and his simple lifestyle.

Before you come out on the streets with noisy
music, ugly dances and uncivilized ways of
celebrating, blocking traffic and disturbing others,
learn how the Prophet (s.a.w.) lived and what he
taught you (Ummah) about conduct! Follow his
way (Sunnah) by adopting his lifestyle! That’s
true Islam! Everything else does not matter!


The Quran is the principal source of all guidance for Muslims. But for those who always find something to dispute and disagree, Prophet Muhammad’s (s.a.w.) entire life has been recorded by many historians, both Muslim and non-Muslim, and that should serve as a role-model because he lived by the Book. He never did anything that could displease the Lord Almighty. He was His true servant in all respects and his conduct was exemplary for all believers. Even Allah said in the Quran that he was the best role-model for mankind.

لَّقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِى رَسُولِ ٱللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِّمَن
كَانَ يَرْجُو ٱللَّهَ وَٱلْيَوْمَ ٱلآخِرَ وَذَكَرَ ٱللَّهَ كَثِيراً
“You have indeed in the Messenger of Allah
a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one
whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day,
and who engages much in the praise of Allah.”
(al-Quran 33:21)

وَأَطِيعُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلرَّسُولَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ
“And obey Allah and the Messenger,
that you may obtain mercy.”
(al-Quran 3:132)

That’s what Allah said about His Messenger (Prophet Muhammad, s.a.w.). And here’s what Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) himself said. He commanded us to stay true and honest to the Quran and his Sunnah:

“I leave behind me two things:
The Quran and my example (the Sunnah), and
if you follow these, you will never go astray!”
-- Prophet Muhammad
(From his farewell Hajj sermon)

It’s very unfortunate that we are deviating from the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet (s.a.w.). We are not true representatives of Islam. We are copying non-Muslim and pagan traditions and falsely claiming them to be Muslim traditions. Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) had already predicted about it.

Narrated Abu Saeed Al-Khudri:
“The Prophet said, ‘You will follow the ways of those nations who were before you, span by span and cubit by cubit (i.e., inch by inch) so much so that even if they entered a hole of a mastigure (a lizard), you would follow them.’ We said, ‘O Allah's Apostle! (Do you mean) the Jews and the Christians?’ He said, ‘Who else?’” -- (Bukhari, Book 92, No. 422).

Eid-e-Milad-un Nabi (Prophet’s birthday) is becoming a replica of Christmas and the irony is that Christmas was not even part of Christianity. It was a pagan tradition duly Christianized 300-400 years after the death of Jesus, the son of Mary.
As a reminder for your guidance, given here below are the excerpts from the last Hajj sermon of the Prophet (s.a.w.). We cannot disobey the Prophet (s.a.w.) and claim to love him at the same time. This is hypocrisy (Munaafiqat). Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) said:

“Remember, one day you will appear before Allah
and answer your deeds! So beware, do not stray
from the path of righteousness after I am gone!”
-- Prophet Muhammad

 “O People! Just as you regard this month, this day, this city as sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners! Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you! Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that He will indeed reckon your deeds.”

“All mankind is from Adam and Eve!
An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab
nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab;
also a white has no superiority over a black nor
a black has any superiority over a white,
except by piety and good action.”
-- Prophet Muhammad

“Allah has forbidden you to take usury (interest), therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived. Your capital, however, is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity. Allah has judged that there shall be no interest and that all the interest due to Abbas ibn Abdal Muttalib (Prophet's uncle) shall henceforth be waived...”

“Do treat your women well and
be kind to them for they are your
partners and committed helpers.”
-- Prophet Muhammad

”O People! It is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have rights over you. Remember that you have taken them as your wives only under Allah's trust and with His permission! If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste.”

“Return the goods entrusted to you to their
rightful owners! Hurt no one so that no one
may hurt you! Remember that you will
indeed meet your Lord, and that He will
indeed reckon your deeds.”
-- Prophet Muhammad


”Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.”

”Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly. Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves.”
”O People! No Prophet or a Messenger will come after me and no new faith will be revealed. Reason well, therefore, O People, and understand words which I convey to you! I leave behind me two things, the Quran and my example (the Sunnah), and if you follow these, you will never go astray!”

And here’s what Allah commands you:
وَأَقِيمُواْ ٱلصَّـلواَةَ وَآتُواْ ٱلزَّكَواةَ وَأَطِيعُواْ ٱلرَّسُولَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ
“So establish regular prayer and give regular
charity; and obey the Messenger, that
you may receive mercy.”
(al-Quran 24:56)

BLACK DAY FOR PALESTINE: Remembering 29th November, 1947.

Remembering 29th November, 1947
The Black Day For Palestine!

Anglo-American Block
Created Israel
On Palestinian Land

(This was the original proposed partition plan)
On 29th November, 1947, the United Nations
General Assembly voted 33 to 13,
with 10 abstentions and one absent,
in favor of the modified
Palestine Partition Plan. And
Israel was officially created!

(And this is actual real-life partition of today. The Green (Palestine) disappears.)
America and Britain created Israel and they cross the line of all ethics, decency, reason and logic in supporting their illegitimate child. Recent American Presidents have followed the same pattern in policy as if Israel was dictating it to them. They don’t feel ashamed or embarrassed in taking an unreasonable stand on the Palestine-Israel issue.
Obama Administration's continued refusal to embrace the facts on the ground and condemn Israel for its ruthless killing of aid workers off the coast of Gaza highlights a fundamental problem with the way in which the Israeli/Palestinian conflict in America is portrayed. Since the mainstream media is owned or controlled by the Jews/Zionists, they are all doing the same anti-Palestine, anti-Arab (and now anti-Muslim) propaganda. The truth is snubbed.

In America and Britain, the premise upon which the Palestine-Israel debate is based on. is fundamentally flawed, and in some cases overtly racist. The American media and the intellectual classes operate within the ‘programmed logic’ that Israel is the victim of Arab aggression and is simply defending itself from hostile neighbors. The Muslim countries are anti-Semitic and hell bent on the destruction of Israel, therefore, they cannot be negotiated with. Israel, the story goes, is a democracy and an ally of the United States and, therefore, justified in anything it does to protect itself. This myth with all its bias prevails in the West.

Joseph Weitz:
In 1948, Joseph Weitz , director of the Jewish National Land Fund and head of the 3rd “Transfer Committee” stated:

“ We must direct our war towards the
removal of as many Arabs as possible
from boundaries of our state.”

Between 1947 and 1949, there were 45 reported massacres including the Yehida Massacre, Al-Sheikh Massacre, Beit Daras Massacre, Dahmesh Massacre, and the better known Deir Yassin Massacre, in which more than 250 people were murdered (25 pregnant women were bayoneted in the abdomen and 52 children were beheaded) as well as the Dawayma Massacre in which 100 people were killed, including children who were murdered by fracturing their heads with sticks.

Yitzhak Rabin, Israeli Prime Minister, 1993:

"No return to the 1967 borders!
No discussion on the Permanent Status (of a Palestinian State)!
No withdrawal from the Jordan Valley!
No negotiations with the PLO!
No to a Palestinian State”!
(Yitzhak Rabin. Israeli Prime Minister – 1993)


Theodor Herzl, Founder of Political Zionism, May 1896:
"Without preparation, I told [Michael von] Newlinsky that we imagine that Palestine would be given to us for £20 million ($100 million [in 1896]). Two million would be given to Palestine on the basis of the capitalization of its present [1896] yield of £80,000 annually. With the other £18 million, we should free Turkey from the Control Commission”.
(Theodor Herzl, founder of political Zionism, 1860 - 1904, from a Personal Diary entry 18th May, 1896).

“We shall endeavor to expel the poor population
(of Palestine) across the border unnoticed,
procuring employment for it in the transit
countries, but denying it any employment in our country”.
(Theodor Herzl, founder of political Zionism, 1860 - 1904,
from a Personal Diary entry 12th June, 1895).

“Israelis' policy is to confiscate Palestinian territory”
– Jimmy Carter

Jimmy Carter, ex-U.S. President:
“The pre-eminent obstacle to peace is Israel's colonization of Palestine. Israel's occupation of Palestine has obstructed a comprehensive peace agreement in the Holy Land, regardless of whether Palestinians had no formalized government, one headed by Yasser Arafat or Mahmoud Abbas, or with Abbas as president and Hamas controlling the parliament and cabinet."
(Jimmy Carter, U.S. President who negotiated the Camp David peace accord, 1979).

"Israel should end its blockade of Gaza, and Western countries should work to facilitate reconciliation between Hamas and their Palestinian rival, Fatah. As long as Gaza remains isolated, the situation in and around Gaza will remain volatile.
Israel's leaders don't want a Palestinian state,” Carter tells Metro in an exclusive interview.
The Israelis have continued with their massive settlement program in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and the Palestinians say they won't negotiate as long as Israel is continuing to take over their territory, so there's deadlock. The United States is looked upon by the rest of the international community as the primary interlocutor, so the European Union members don't take action. As a result, there's no intermediary who can move things forward and initiate peace talks.

I think the big change is that the Israeli leaders have decided to abandon the two-state solution. Their policy now is to confiscate Palestinian territory, and they've announced publicly that it the Palestinians have to recognize not just Israel but Israel as a Jewish state, even though 20% of the Israeli community is non-Jews.

Netanyahu has also decided that even the Jordan valley has to be under Israeli control. So, those factors indicate quite clearly that Netanyahu has decided that the two-state solution is not what he wants. He wants what is being called Greater Israel, Eretz Israel. That's a new development, and I think everyone recognizes this.

Nelson Mandela:
“The Palestinian state cannot be the by-product of the Jewish state, just in order to keep the Jewish purity of Israel. Israel’s racial discrimination is daily life of most Palestinians. Since Israel is a Jewish state, Israeli Jews are able to accrue special rights which non-Jews cannot do. Palestinian Arabs have no place in a “Jewish” state.
Apartheid is a crime against humanity. Israel has deprived millions of Palestinians of their liberty and property. It has perpetuated a system of gross racial discrimination and inequality. It has systematically incarcerated and tortured thousands of Palestinians, contrary to the rules of international law. It has, in particular, waged a war against a civilian population, in particular children.”

"If you want peace and democracy, I will support you.
If you want formal Apartheid, we will not support you.
If you want to support racial discrimination and
ethnic cleansing, we will oppose you."

(Memo to Thomas Friedman about Israel & Palestine, by Nelson Mandela, in Jefferson Corner - America's Speaker's Corner, 28 March 2001.)

George Galloway: Free Palestine!
"Free Palestine, Free Afghanistan, Free Speech" - George Galloway

George Galloway Speaking in Vancouver, British Columbia:

“The Palestinians are the victims of one of 
the greatest crimes of the 20th century 
now bleeding into the 21st century”.

“Israel has broken more U.N. Security Council
Resolutions than all the other countries of
the World combined. They have broken more
international law than all the countries
of the world put together.
The Palestinians who are the victims of terrorism
are called the terrorists, and the Israelis
who are the ‘Terrorists’ are referred to as
the victims by the  Zionist-controlled politicians
and Zionist-controlled media in the West.”
(Speech made at St. Andrew's Wesley United Church, Vancouver, Canada,
Monday, November 21, 2010).

Since the modern civilized world leaders are unable (or honestly unwilling) to solve this chronic problem, the world population, especially the Palestinians and Muslims, are now looking up to the heavens and begging God to intervene. With God, all things are possible. But we should know what happens when God intervenes and delivers justice!

JUSTICE PREVAILS Under Just Rulers Only. Message From The Quran & The Bible.

The Quran & The Bible Deliver
The Same Message of
Righteousness & Justice!

Justice Prevails Under
Just Rulers Only

Corruption Prevails Under
Corrupt Administrations.
If People Are Corrupt, They
Get Corrupt Leaders.

(M. Javed Naseem)

وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمْ لاَ تُفْسِدُواْ فِى ٱلأَرْضِ قَالُوۤاْ إِنَّمَا نَحْنُ مُصْلِحُونَ
أَلاۤ إِنَّهُمْ هُمُ ٱلْمُفْسِدُونَ وَلَـٰكِن لاَّ يَشْعُرُونَ
“When it is said to them: ‘Make not mischief on
the earth,’ they say: ‘Why, we only want to make
peace!’ Of a surety, they are the ones who make
mischief, but they realize (it) not.”
(al-Quran 2:11-12)

Major religions of the world promote righteousness, social justice and compassion as envisaged by ONE God. But the men in power corrupted that system so that they (and their children too) could stay in power for as long as possible. The crooked gave it different names but the main purpose behind all those fancy names was to grab the power and plunder the wealth manipulating the poor or the weak. Later on, it got worse when, with emancipation, awareness and education, the masses started waking up and coming out in the streets to protest. They started demanding social justice and human rights. The people in power generally don’t like the criticism or opposition, therefore, they resort to violence, torture, shutting off general public by putting them in prisons, even killing them one way or the other so that they could prolong their tenure in power.

Allah commands you not to spread corruption
on the earth. Whatever is between Heavens and
the Earth, belongs to Allah. If you try to disrupt
or destroy the system of Nature, you are on your
way to self-destruction! You cannot be saved!

In today’s world, these greedy, corrupt and power-hungry people call themselves ‘politicians’. To them, politics means grinding your own axe by fooling people with empty promises, lies, deceptions and even betrayals.

Today’s World Leaders:

Our world leaders can more clearly be defined
as greedy, power hungry, criminal, psychopathic,
manipulative, and parasitic in nature. They cannot
lead us to the land of freedom, prosperity,
happiness and peace because they are not
sincere nor honest. They are incompetent,
inept and even inhuman!

The leaders of today are neither honest nor sincere with people. They don’t believe in any ideology. The only ideology they pursue is the money and power. They are not there to lead you to the land of freedom, happiness, success, prosperity and peace. They are out there to take control of your area, your town, your country, your continent and your planet. In other words, they want total control of your lives so that you cannot demand your rights, protest against injustice or suppression. They’ve got guns and bombs, armies of mercenaries to silence you, in case. They want to keep you as slaves!
If we look at the chaotic nature of today’s society and its obvious inequalities, it seems our world leaders are more clearly defined by terms such as greedy, power hungry, criminal, psychopathic, manipulative, and are overall, parasitic in nature. Obviously this is a blanket statement that doesn’t apply to every single person, as there as many honorable community leaders out there — but when we think of our leaders as a whole, in areas such as government, banking, entertainment, and big business, it’s hard not to come to such negative conclusions.
There is concern for justice in our world today. However, to achieve justice for the world, we must better understand how God views it. Here are some verses from the Quran and the Bible for a better understanding of God’s intentions.

إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَأْمُرُ بِٱلْعَدْلِ وَٱلإحْسَانِ وَإِيتَآءِ ذِى ٱلْقُرْبَىٰ
وَيَنْهَىٰ عَنِ ٱلْفَحْشَاءِ وَٱلْمُنْكَرِ وَٱلْبَغْىِ يَعِظُكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ
“Allah commands justice, the doing of good, and
liberality to kith and kin, and He forbids all shameful
deeds, and injustice and rebellion. He instructs you
that you may receive admonition.”
(al-Quran 16:90)

يَا أَيُّهَآ ٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُونُواْ قَوَّامِينَ لِلَّهِ شُهَدَآءَ بِٱلْقِسْطِ
وَلاَ يَجْرِمَنَّكُمْ شَنَآنُ قَوْمٍ عَلَىۤ أَلاَّ تَعْدِلُواْ ٱعْدِلُواْ هُوَ أَقْرَبُ
لِلتَّقْوَىٰ وَٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ
“O you who believe! Stand out firmly for Allah, as
witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others
to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from
justice. Be just, that is next to piety, and fear Allah.
For Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do.”
(al-Quran 5:8)

لَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا رُسُلَنَا بِٱلْبَيِّنَاتِ وَأَنزَلْنَا مَعَهُمُ ٱلْكِتَابَ وَٱلْمِيزَانَ لِيَقُومَ ٱلنَّاسُ بِٱلْقِسْطِ
“We sent aforetime our messengers with clear Signs and
sent down with them the Book and the Balance (of Right
and Wrong), that men may stand forth in Justice…”
(al-Quran 57:25)

يَا أَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ كُونُواْ قَوَّامِينَ بِٱلْقِسْطِ شُهَدَآءَ لِلَّهِ وَلَوْ
عَلَىۤ أَنْفُسِكُمْ أَوِ ٱلْوَالِدَيْنِ وَٱلأَقْرَبِينَ إِن يَكُنْ غَنِيّاً أَوْ فَقِيراً
فَٱللَّهُ أَوْلَىٰ بِهِمَا فَلاَ تَتَّبِعُواْ ٱلْهَوَىٰ أَن تَعْدِلُواْ وَإِن
تَلْوُواْ أَوْ تُعْرِضُواْ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيراً
“O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as
witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your
parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or
poor; for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the
lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you
distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah
is well-acquainted with all that you do.”
(al-Quran 4:135)

وَإِنْ حَكَمْتَ فَٱحْكُمْ بَيْنَهُمْ بِٱلْقِسْطِ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يُحِبُّ ٱلْمُقْسِطِينَ
… If you judge, judge in equity between them.
For Allah loves those who judge in equity.”
(al-Quran 5:42)

إِنَّآ أَنْزَلْنَا إِلَيْكَ ٱلْكِتَابَ بِٱلْحَقِّ لِتَحْكُمَ
بَيْنَ ٱلنَّاسِ بِمَآ أَرَاكَ ٱللَّهُ وَلاَ تَكُنْ لِّلْخَآئِنِينَ خَصِيماً
“We have sent down to you the Book in truth, that
you may judge between men, as guided by Allah …”
(al-Quran 4:105)

وَتَمَّتْ كَلِمَةُ رَبِّكَ صِدْقاً وَعَدْلاً لاَّ مُبَدِّلَ لِكَلِمَاتِهِ وَهُوَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلْعَلِيمُ
“The word of your Lord does find its fulfillment in
truth and in justice. None can change His words, for
He is the One Who hears and knows all.”
(al-Quran 6:115)

وَقُلْ آمَنتُ بِمَآ أَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ مِن كِتَابٍ وَأُمِرْتُ ِلأَعْدِلَ بَيْنَكُمُ
… Say: "I believe in the Book which Allah
has sent down; and I am commanded to judge
justly between you ...”
(al-Quran 42:15)

The Bible:

Psalms 33:5
“The Lord loves righteousness and justice, the earth is full of his unfailing love.”

Leviticus 19:15
“Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.”

Zechariah 7:9
This is what the Lord Almighty said: “Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another.”

Isaiah 1:17
“Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow!”

Luke 18:1-8
“Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: ‘He said: In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’ For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me! And the Lord said, ‘Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”

Isaiah 61:8-9
“For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing. In my faithfulness I will reward my people and make an everlasting covenant with them. Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the peoples. All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the Lord has blessed.”

Micah 6:8
“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

Psalms 37:27-29
“Turn from evil and do good; then you will dwell in the land forever. For the Lord loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones. Wrongdoers will be completely destroyed; the offspring of the wicked will perish. The righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it forever.”

Amos 5:24
But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!”

Hosea 12:6
“But you must return to your God; maintain love and justice, and wait for your God always.”

Fourteen hundred years ago these commands created a society where rich and poor, friend and foe, Muslim and non-Muslim, the ruler and the ruled, were all treated equally and all of them could count on receiving justice. The Qazis (judges) were independent and no one, including the Khalifah was above the law. If a dispute arose between the Khalifah and an ordinary person, both had to appear in court and provide their evidence. Islamic history is full of stories of this justice that filled the earth wherever Muslims ruled in their golden era.

What Is Justice In Islam?

إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَأْمُرُكُمْ أَن تُؤَدُّواْ ٱلأَمَانَاتِ إِلَىۤ أَهْلِهَا وَإِذَا حَكَمْتُمْ
بَيْنَ ٱلنَّاسِ أَن تَحْكُمُواْ بِٱلْعَدْلِ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ نِعِمَّا يَعِظُكُمْ بِهِ
إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ سَمِيعاً بَصِيراً
“Allah commands you to render back your Trusts
to those to whom they are due. And when you judge
between man and man, that you judge with justice.
Verily how excellent is the teaching which He gives
you! For Allah is He Who hears and sees all things.”
(al-Quran 4:58)

During The Time of The Prophet (s.a.w.):
Narrated An-Nu'man bin Bashir:
My mother asked my father to give me a gift from his property and he gave it to me after some hesitation. My mother said that she would not be satisfied unless the Prophet (s.a.w.) was made a witness to it. I being a young boy, my father held me by the hand and took me to the Prophet (s.a.w.). He said to the Prophet, ‘His mother, Bint Rawaha, requested me to give this boy a gift.’
The Prophet (s.a.w.) said, "Do you have other sons besides him?"
He said, "Yes." The Prophet (s.a.w.) said, "Don’t make me a witness to injustice.” 
(Narrated Ash-Shabi that the Prophet (s.a.w.) said, "I will not become a witness to injustice.”).
(Bukhari, Book 48,  Hadith No.818)

During The Time of Caliph Umar (r.a.a.):
Shurayh al-Qaadhi (the judge), narrates that Caliph Umar bin al-Khattaab (r.a.a.), bought a horse from a Bedouin, paid its price and rode off with it. However, after traveling a little distance, the Caliph noticed some kind of defect in the horse, so he returned to the seller and requested him to take it back since it was defective. The man refused, telling the Caliph that the horse was perfectly healthy when it was sold to him. Umar (r.a.a.) asked the man to choose a judge for resolving the dispute. The man suggested Shurayh ibn al-Haarith al-Kindi whom Umar (r.a.a.) accepted.
After the judge listened to the Bedouin’s testimony, he turned to Umar (r.a.a.), asking: “Was the horse normal and healthy when you bought it?”
Umar (r.a.a.) replied: “Yes, it was.”
Shurayh then said: “Then keep what you bought or return it as you took it.”
Umar (r.a.a.) looked at Shurayh in admiration and said: “That’s the way justice should be! I give you the position of Chief Justice of Koofah in Iraq.”
This is Islamic justice, an ordinary Bedouin taking the Caliph to court, deciding which judge to go to and the Caliph accepting the judge’s decision voluntarily.

During The Time of Caliph Ali (r.a.a.):
Ali ibn Abu Talib (r.a.a.) lost a shield that was dear to him and later found it in the hands of a non-Muslim who was selling it in one of Koofah’s markets. Ali (r.a.a.) recognized the shield and said: “This is my shield that fell off my camel on so and so night at such and such time.”
The man answered: “No, this is my shield because it is in my hand.”
Ali (r.a.a.) replied: “No, it is mine since I never sold it or gave it to anyone.”
They decided to take the matter to the Qadhi (judge) and went to the court of judge Shurayh. (This was the same judge who was appointed by Caliph Umar binn Al-Khattab (r.a.a.) many years ago). The judge asked Ali (r.a.a.) for his side of the story. Ali (r.a.a.) claimed that the shield was his and that he had found it with that man. It had fallen off his camel and he had never sold it or given it to anyone.
The judge turned to the other man asking his story. The man said that he did not accuse Ali (r.a.a.) of lying but the shield was his as it was in his hands.
Shurayh turned to Ali (r.a.a.) saying: “I believe you, but we need the testimony of two witnesses to back your story.”
Ali (r.a.a.) said that there was his aide Qanbar and his son Hassan with him, to which the man replied that a son could not testify for the benefit of his father.
Ali (r.a.a.) said: “My God! A man who is promised paradise cannot act as a witness! Have you not heard what the Prophet (s.a.w.) said that Hassan and Hussain would be the leaders of the youths of paradise?
Shurayh said: “Yes, I have, but a son cannot bear witness for his father.”
Then Ali turned to the man and said: “Keep the shield as I have no other witnesses.”
The man, who was a non-Muslim, then said: “O Ali, the shield is yours! What a great religion (Islam)! I can bring the Caliph to the court and get a judge to pass a decision for my benefit! I declare myself a Muslim.”
He told the judge that he was following the army and had seen the shield fall down and picked it up. Ali (r.a.a.) then told the man to keep the shield and, on top of that, he also gave him a horse. That incident changed the life of that man. Soon after, the man was seen under Ali (r.a.a.)’s leadership fighting the Khawaarij.
That’s called justice in Islam!

Islam has prepared its followers to follow this righteous instinct. It is a joy to our spirit to stand and think of the greatness of Islamic justice, how fair Islamic law is to individuals and groups, rulers and the ruled!
