Are You Educated ?

Today, I address all those who are literate and think that they are Muslims. I have not used the word “educated” purposely. Now, please do not make a futile effort to throw it back on to me because when you read it, “I” will become “you” and “you” will become “I”.

Have you applied, in practical life, what you learned at school / college / university where you studied ?
Or
was that only for collecting testimonials (degrees) so that you can make money ?

Being Muslim, you must have read Qur’aan Shareef, did you understand what it says and did you apply it on yourself in your practical life ?
If, truthfully, your answer is:
“No” to the first question means that you are not educated because you didn’t learn anything at school / college / university only memorised.

“No” to the second question means that you are Muslim only by name.

So, please, try to become an educated Muslim before you expect others to be so

World propaganda machinery describes Muslims as uncivilized people and even call them terrorists.
In fact Muslims are more civilized and disciplined than all the other societies of the world.
Here is a glimpse of Friday prayer congregation in Masjid al Haram (Grand Mosque) in Makkah, Saudi Arabia on a Friday in the month of Ramadan (Fasting month) which this year is from June 06 to July 05.
makka-madina 2015 (14)
Three floors of Masjid al Haram and open area around Masjid al Haram are all jam-packed with about 2,000,000 people. They have come from all over the world. Their languages and cultures are different. They do not understand each other’s language but remember the teachings of Islam to make peace, be disciplined and helpful to others.
During their prayers five times a day in Masjid al Haram, they perform several Rukus (genuflections / bowings) and Sajdahs (prostrations) simultaneously with one voice “Allaho Akbar (God is Great) of Imam (Leader of Prayer)

A video showing fasting Muslim worshippers during Ramadan (fasting month), 2017 in Kaaba (The Grand Mosque) in Makkah.

During Ramadan, they eat and drink only after sunset and before sunrise for which they go out of the Masjid al Haram to hotels and restaurants around Masjid al Haram. They show best discipline even outside Masjid al Haram.
The administration of the city (Makkah) as well as staff of the hotels and restaurants also show best efficiency and discipline to control / provide food to such a big number of people within an hour.

The Hate of Hindus towards Muslims

As result of long and hard struggle by Muslims of India through their political organ Muslim League and under able guidance of their leader Muhammad Ali Jinnah and blessing of Allah sub-hanohoo wa Ta’ala, an independent Muslim country, Pakistan, came in to being at 2357 hours on August 14, 1947.

Extent of Hate can be visualised by comparing (1) & (2) with (3)
(1) Once we were playing hide and seek and a boy (Muslim) rammed in to a passerby Hindu. He shouted, “کپڑے بھڑشٹ کری گیا ۔ کپڑے بھڑشٹ کری گیا (He made my clothes filthy. He made my clothes filthy)” and cursed Muslims.
(2) Another time after playing we went to a Hindu’s shop for drinks. Shopkeeper sold drink to a Hindu boy but declined to sell to Muslim boys. On Hindu boy’s request to sell drinks to us, he said, “مُسلے ہیں بوتلیں بھڑشت ہو جائیں گی (They are Muslims, bottles will become filthy).” Then one Muslim boy asked for water, the shop keeper standing two meters away poured water on to his hands from half a meter above his hands.
(3) Hindus worship cows. Some cows used to wander about in the town. Once a Hindu was passing by a cow and the cow started urinating and his clothes were drenched with urine of cow. He said, “پاپ چڑی گئے ۔ پاپ چڑی گئے (My sins are washed away. My sins are washed away).”

I studied in the best school of the province. Our class comprised 6 girls (one Muslim, 4 Hindu, one Christian) and 14 boys (6 Muslim, one Sikh, 7 Hindus). In March 1947, I was in Grade 3, when decision about independence came to be known, following which, hatred could be noted on faces of Hindu students. A Hindu classmate, Rambeer (4 years older than) me abused Mr Muhammad Ali Jinnah. On asking him not to do that, he took out a knife and tore my coat from behind and went away threatening me. Two days later, when teacher was not in the class room, a friend of Rambeer, Keerti Kumar abused Muslims. On asking him to stop, he jumped on me saying, “We will kill you Muslims and there will be no Pakistan.” A few days later, a quarrel took place outside the school between Hindu and Muslim students of class-10 and a boy was injured. Consequently, the school was closed. Thereafter skirmishes in the city between Muslims and Hindus were heard every fortnight or so.

Muslims of Jammu took out procession every. One day children of 8 years and above were included and I was also part of the procession. The slogans were “لے کے رہیں گے ۔ پاکستان [We will get Pakistan]”, “بن کے رہے گا ۔ پاکستان” [Pakistan will be founded], “What do you want ? Pakistan”, “پاکستان کا مطلب کیا ? لا إله إلا الله (Meaning of Pakistan? There’s no god except God] ”.
During July, 1947, Muslims of the state passed “Accession to Pakistan Resolution” and submitted it to the ruler of Jammu Kashmir.
