Was the First temptation, Fall or Rise of ADAM?

The Temptation of Adam

A life of passion and longing is better than eternal quiet,
Even a dove that is caught in a trap, but keeps flapping its wings, changes into an eagle.
You do no more than bow down in humility;
Rise like the tall cypress tree, you who are slow to act!
The waters of Kausar and Tasnim have robbed you of the joy of action.
Take wine from the jug, real wine clear as crystal, made from grapes.
‘Good’ and ‘bad’ are figments of the imagination of your Lord.
Take pleasure in action, step out and take what you desire.
Come, rise up, so that I may show you a new kingdom!
Open your eyes and go about seeing the sights the world has to offer.
Now you are a drop of water worth nothing, become a luminous pearl!
Come down from the heavens, and live in the ocean.
You are a flashing sword, strike terror into the world’s soul;
Come out of the scabbard and show your mettle.
Spread an eagle’s wings and spill the pheasants’ blood;
For a falcon, living in the nest spells death.
You do not yet know this, but with union comes the end of longing:
What is eternal life? To burn – and keep on burning!
[Translation by Mustansir Mir]
اغوائے آدم

زندگی سوز و ساز بہ ز سکون دوام
فاختہ شاہین شود از تپش زیر دام
ہیچ نیاید ز تو غیر سجود نیاز
خیز چو سرو بلند، اے بعمل نرم گام
کوثر و تسنیم برد، از تو نشاط عمل
گیر ز مینائے تاک بادۂ آئینہ فام
زشت و نکو زادۂ وہم خداوند تست
لذت کردار گیر، گام بنہ، جوئے کام
خیز کہ بنمایمت، مملکت تازہ ئی
چشم جہاں بین کشا، بہر تماشا خرام
قطرۂ بے مایہ ئی گوھر تابندہ شو
از سر گردون بیفت، گیر بدریا مقام
تیغ درخشندہ ئی، جان جہانے گسل
جوھر خود رانما، آے بروں از نیام
بازوئے شاہیں کشا، خون تذرواں بریز
مرگ بود باز ار زیستن اندر کنام
تو نشناسی ہنوز شوق بمیرد ز وصل
چیست حیات دوام، سوختن ناتمام

And now, the question:

“Why Adam may have got tempted, according to this poem?”

My Answer:

Temptation of lust was in the blood of ADAM, when ALLAH created ADAM from dust ” Khanakhti hui Matti” which was kept for long and then ALLAH made ADAM’s body. When soul was entering in ADAM’s body, ADAM tried to get up early. The whole lot of angels screamed ” ADAM is in hurry and prone to temptation before even the complete birth of ADAM”

Iblees knew the potentials and weakness of ADAM. He used it to betray ADAM from the will of ALLAH. ADAM was reluctant in deciding to eat the forbidden fruit but Amaan Hawa pushed and convinced ADAM to eat that fruit to attain eternity. Here we can see the factor of greed is more in women and Iblees convinced Amaan Hawa initially to convince ADAM. Here we can learn that women is the biggest easily trapped weapon of Iblees. ( I am not blaming or attacking women but talking about the nature of man and women ) ALLAH could have stopped ADAM from eating the forbidden fruit, but ALLAH gave the choice to ADAM to choose burning for eternity or statically claiming the eternity as a gift without endeavor. And ADAM responded right to his potentials and to unleash his self, ADAM has choosed to claim the award of Khalifa of ALLAH through his own action of constantly burning and burning.Allah has put forward an immense trust on ADAM by giving him choice of choosing good or opposite to good. That seperation from originator of human is not just due to temptation within human. That seperation is due to the trust of ALLAH on human, which is being tested in this paradox of time,that human won’t choose the SATAN’s way of deception. Human will build a world where he will choose and implement the order of ALLAH and will rightly be called the Khalifa of ALLAH on earth.

I will proudly say that ADAM was tempted to get more near to ALLAH by differentiating from SATAN as ADAM turned back to ALLAH, on the realization of his mistake, while SATAN never turned back. This temptation was the transitionary phase of ADAM from an ideal world where beauty,nature, heaven, hell, desire and life were not able to grasp Who is ADAM? So ADAM choosed to unleash, to burn for eternal bliss.

Exploring the Birth of ADAM

Note: This is shared from http://murghideen.blogspot.com/2011/06/21-birth-of-adam.html with the intentions of spreading the knowledge and visions of Iqbal and it just includes my answer to this question given by me on that blog.

Now we will explore ‘The Conquest of Nature’, after a poem from the second book of Iqbal’s poetry, The Message of the East (1923).

The Birth of Adam

Love exclaimed, ‘Now one has been born who would roll his heart in blood!’
Beauty trembled when she realised that one with a penetrating look had been born!
Nature was distraught because, from the dust of a world without will,
One had been born who could make and unmake himself, and watch over himself.
From the heavens the news went out to Eternity’s sleeping-chamber:
Beware, you who are veiled, one has been born who will tear away all veils!
Desire, resting in the lap of life and forgetful of itself,
Opened its eyes, and a new world was born.
Life said, ‘Through all my years I lay in the dust and convulsed,
Until at last a door appeared in this ancient dome.’
[Translation by Mustansir Mir]

میلادِ آدم
نعرہ زد عشق کہ خونین جگرے پیدا شد
حسن لرزید کہ صاحب نظرے پیدا شد
فطرت آشفت کہ از خاکِ جہانِ مجبور
خود گرے خود شکنے خود نگرے پیدا شد
خبرے رفت ز گردون بہ شبستان ازل
حذر اے پردگیان پردہ درے پیدا شد
آرزو بیخبر از خویش بہ آغوشِ حیات
چشم وا کرد و جہانِ دگرے پیدا شد
زندگی گفت کہ در خاک تپیدم ہمہ عمر
تا ازین گنبدِ دیرینہ درے پیدا شد

And now the Question:
“How do you feel about this part of the poem?”

Answer:

Though i have lot to speak but i am speechless after reading this poem. I feel special as i feel importance given to me by my Creator. The whole of the universe is astonished and in a state of ” Kaifiyat e HU” with the birth of prince of Universe. I feel proud, self realization, and worth of human being from this great poem of Sir Iqbal.

When the news of birth of human goes to beauty, its reaction creates beauty. When this news goes to Nature, its bewildering remains its essence and when this new reaches to Eternity, one can feel the eternal aspect of human’s endeavor. With the awakening of desire, Life awakens and the story of evolution of human continued. I feel spiritually connected with Beauty, Nature, Eternity, Desire and Life who all are realizing me mines importance in and out of the dimensions of time and space.

World of Murghideen: Is it Possible?

Note: This is shared from http://murghideen.blogspot.com with the intentions of spreading the knowledge and visions of Iqbal and it just includes my answer to this question given by me on that blog.

The following is an excerpt from the abridged edition of Iqbal’s Javid Nama translated by Hina Tanveer and published by Iqbal Academy Pakistan in 2006(The original Persian text can be read at the official website of Iqbal Academy Pakistan).

Welcome to Murghideen


The city of Murghideen is a magnificent place with tall buildings. Its people are beautiful, selfless and simple; they speak a language that sounds melodious to the ears. They are not after material goods; rather they are the guardians of knowledge and derive wealth from their sound judgment. The sole purpose of knowledge and skill in that world is to help improve the life. Currency is unknown, and temperaments are not to be governed by machines that blacken the sky with their smoke. The farmers are hardworking and contented – there are no landlords to plunder their harvest, and the tillers of the land enjoy the entire fruit of their labor. Learning and wisdom don’t flourish on deceit and hence there is neither army, nor law keepers are needed, because there is no crime in Murghideen. The marketplace is free from the noisy shouts and heartrending cries of the beggars.
“In this world there is no beggar,” said the Martian Astronomer, “Nor anyone is poor; no slave, no master – no ruler and thus none dominated.”
I said, “Being born a beggar or a destitute, to be ruled or suppressed, is all by the decree of God. He alone is the architect of destiny. Destiny cannot be improved by reasoning.”
“If you are suffering at the hands of destiny,” replied the Martian astronomer with a visible anger, “It is not unfair to ask God for a new one. He has no shortage of destinies for you. Failure to understand the mystical significance of destiny has led the inhabitants of the Earth to lose their identities. Here is a hint to the secret of destiny: change yourself and your destiny will change with you. If you are dust, you shall be scattered by the wind. But if you become solid as a rock, you can break the glass. If you are dewdrop, then you are destined to fall but if you are an ocean, then you will remain. To you, faith means conformity to others while your imagination remains confined because you do not conform to yourself. Shame on the faith that serves like an addiction to opium!”
Then he paused, and added, “A gem is a gem as long as you think it is valuable, otherwise it is just a stone. The world will shape itself according to your perception of it. The heavens and the earth too will adjust.”
And now, the question:

“Do you think that there should be a world like Murghideen? Why, or why not?”

My Answer:

Murghideen is always there within us from the point where ALLAH after creating Human awarded human with choice of doing evil or good on earth. So that good selfless choice in human’s soul is always there which can collectively build Murghideen on earth.

Though it looks practically impossible to reach that ideal stage of Murghideen after spending thousands of years on earth but still that hope, that Love and fear of ALLAH, is always there in hearts of human race, which is in lesser amount but that will rise surely before the end of times to create this place an ideal place like that of Murghideen mentioned by Sir Iqbal RA.

It has promised prophetical evidence from QURAN and HADITH, when there will be rise of Hazrat Imam Mehdi AS and Hazrat ISA AS, Islam will cultivate seeds of selfless love and peace within greedy souls of human race. Yes IQBAL has rightly mentioned it, Murghideen is yet to reveal on earth.

Till that time, we need to selflessly strive for it by choosing goodness and spreading this message of spiritual meaning beyond the material borders to keep the souls igniting.

Murghideen is needed because it will deepen the thirst of human to meet with GOD selflessly without any material intentions of heaven and hell. I know heaven and hell are placed by ALLAH and ALLAH Himself gives appeal of heaven and fears humans from hell. But still, this earthly life which is given to us is never to waste it.

This life has been given to us so that we can learn to become selfless, seeking love of ALLAH without any material benefits. And being selfless on earth with an intention of Love of ALLAH, will take you near towards Murghideen on earth, whose inhabitants will desire to meet and see Creator of Universes without any material thirst.

Now what is your answer to this special quest of knowledge and wisdom? Share it !!

The World of SAADI ignites you near to ALLAH

In the Name of the Lord of the worlds and the Creator of life who is the Bestower of the power of speech and articulation, the Judge, the Supreme Knower, the Forgiver, the Helper, the Acceptor of petition, the Absolver of wrongdoings. He is such a Unique honorer and the Bestower of honor that whosoever in disobedience turned away from His court, has only received dishonor – for true honor and grace flows from the Supreme Source alone. Even the heads of the most mighty earthly rulers and emperors must bow down in front of His awesome court.

But such is His grace and clemency that He does not capture and punish the disobedient and the arrogant immediately. He never oppress in driving away those who surrender to Him, for He is the Acceptor of repentance. If you’ve earned His displeasure in your turning away from Him through wrong doings, even then re-turn to Him again and again through repentance, for He is the Ever Merciful. He will then dismiss your case and show you His boundless mercy and compassion.

According to the way of this world: when a son shows disobedience and dishonor his father, the father becomes displeased and angry with the son. If one relative is displeased with another who may be related by the bond of blood, still he might drive that relative away from his house like strangers. If employee does not perform according to instructions, the employer naturally gets annoyed and irritated and loves not the employee. If a friend is not friendly and affectionate to one another, the tie of friendship becomes loose and relationship fall apart. If a solider desert the service by not obeying the command of his leader, surely his commander will be displeased and give punishment according to military rule.

Yet the Lord of the entire cosmos is so Merciful that He never stops providing sustenance due to the wrongdoing of His creatures. He endlessly covers the mistakes, disobedience, ignorance and forgetfulness of His servants by His infinite patience. The whole expanse of the earth is His, yet when human beings plunder the earth, destroying its resources through greed He is ever Merciful through His Mercy and discriminate none in providing their share of bounty. If He were to take account every oppressor and wrongdoers, who would get respite from His awesome divine fury?

His Holy Essence is forever free from associate, consort or any otherness (ghairullah). He in His Essence is Incomparable (la sharika laHu), His Kingdom is independent from the obedience or disobedience of mankind and any other creature. The carpet of His generosity is so vast that even the tiniest of tiny and the largest of the large get their provision without ceasing. The Real Doer of all Actions, the expander of Mercy, Infinitely Gracious and the fully Aware of every secret. Only He is worthy of Self-Glory and Pride, for His Kingdom is ever-lasting and His Great Being is Independent. He makes whomsoever rich and kings and He takes away wealth, health and resource in an instant. To some He may bestow temporal authority and power and to others he may try with harsh hardship.

He transforms a pit of fire into a bed of flower for Abraham and for another group He takes them from the water of red sea to fire (Pharaoh and his soldiers who pursued Moses and Children of Israel). The first of this is the command of His Mercy and the second informs of His Might.

He observes every single misdeeds and wrongdoings, yet with His own veil of mercy He veils them. If He were to unveil His wrath, even the angels near His Presence would become deaf, mute and dumb in fear. If He were to announce His reward, even the devil would cry out for his share. In His magnanimous court of greatness and majesty, even the greatest of the saints put down their turban of sainthood, for in His Glory no other glory is worthy of existence.

Those who are gentle, He draws them near to His presence through His mercy. He grants the petition of those who cry out to Him. He is the Wholly Aware of all events; the most hidden secrets are manifest to His infinite knowledge. In His infinite power and might, He is the preserver of the heaven and the hearth, the Accountant on the Day of Accounting. No one is free from His all encompassing command and none can interfere to His will. He is forever the Doer of Good and loves those who do good. He is the Artist who draws the fate of every child while they are still in mother’s womb. He has floated the celestial bodies into the cosmos in their destined path and has spread the carpet of earth on the planet making it a place of dwelling.

He has stabilized the earth through mountains and has suspended it without support in the empty space. Such Incomparable Fashioner is He that He brings out beautiful faced human being from a drop of rejected fluid. Is there any other artist like Him?

He hides precious jewels inside hardened rock, He makes infinite colors to bloom on branches of countless trees that draw their nutrients from the colorless earth. He sends rain drop from rain clouds into the ocean, making beautiful pearl out of it and He guide a drop of liquid from the father’s loin into the mother’s womb to Fashion beautifully shaped human child. Every kind of science and knowledge is His and nothing is hidden from His knowing. To Him the zahir and the batin (the manifest and the hidden) is not two but one.

He is the Provider of food even for the creatures who is without hand and without feet (the snakes) and He is also the Provider even for the most tiny and weak (microbes, ants). According to His divine command, existence came into being from non-existence, which again will return to non-existence from this very existence as we know it. From there on He will take them into another existence on the expansive court on the Day of Final Resurrection. The whole of creation are not in denial of His Lordship, but humanity has failed to grasp His Unique Countenance.

Humanity has grasped nothing beyond His Jalal and vision have failed to reach the furthest end of His Jamal. Neither the bird of intellect can fly high enough in the sky of His Unfathomable Being (Jaat), nor can the hand that searches endlessly through mazes of countless human minds can touch His Never exhausting Attributes (Sifat). In this maze of divine paradox many thousands of boats have capsized, not even a single plank has reached the shore.

The author of this writing has spent many countless nights sitting and contemplating and suddenly this indescribable awe has come and overwhelmed me. The Pure Knowledge of Allah is encompassing the entire cosmos, human conception based on temporal reality can never grasp that Reality. Intellect can never reach the root of His Being, your seeking will ever fall short of His infinite attributes. The Holiest of Holy Who has no comparisons, His Haqiqat (Reality) is unreachable.

Many distinguished beings of humanity have run their horses in this path and even the highest Messengers and Avatars and Prophets have become speechless in their attempt to describe what is indescribable. Every course and field is not suitable to run the horse upon. Those who have drunk from this cup of pure gnosis have lost consciousness. A single glance at that Pure Light is enough to blind you for the rest of your existence.

The phoenix who has began this journey, begin with its eyes closed and has not witnessed the Tajalli (Divine Manifestation) yet, while the phoenix who has advanced has its wings clipped, for there is no return to the same place for one who has roamed in the placeness.

If you wish to become a traveler and cross over to the other side of the ocean of ma’arifa (gnosis) then destroy and put ablaze the ship of return. Contemplate upon the mirror of your heart and layer by layer embark upon the grand act of purification, only praiseworthy action to return to the original Face that was your Face before you were born. Perhaps the fragrance of divine love will arrive and capture you and would aspire you to fulfill your promise (from the Day of promise in the pre-eternity when all of humanity answered when God asked, “Am I not your Lord?” by saying, “Yes! We testify that You are our Lord”).

First you shall walk upon this path of purification. From there on you shall fly on the wings of love. After that you shall penetrate the veils of concepts, beliefs and certainty. There shall remain no other veil but the Jalal of the Most High. After this your spaceship of conscience shall come to a halt. Bewilderment will seize it by commanding, “Stop! Here is your limit.”

None has dived in this ocean of gnosis more perfectly reaching its furthest depth except the Seal (s). Any one who has failed to follow this path might have traveled great distance but have only gained exhaustion and confusion. Those who have disobeyed the Master of Mystic, the Praised one, have not reached the station of praise. O friend, never ever allow this imagination that you may arrive at the door of ma’arifa devoid of obedience to the Praised Master, may peace and blessings be upon his soul.

– Non-literal translation from the Bostan of Shaykh Sa’adi Shirazi, one of the most gifted sufi poet and writer and disciple of the Sufi master and gnostic Sheikh Shahabud-Din Sahrawardi, may Allah be pleased with them both.

How could I ever thank my Friend?

How could I ever thank my Friend?
No thanks could ever begin to be worthy.
Every hair of my body is a gift from Him;
How could I thank Him for each hair?
Praise that lavish Lord forever
Who from nothing conjures all living beings!

Who could ever describe His goodness?
His infinite glory lays all praise waste.
Look, He has graced you a robe of splendor
From childhood’s first cries to old age!

He made you pure in His own image; stay pure.
It is horrible to die blackened by sin.
Never let dust settle on your mirror’s shining;
Let it once grow dull and it will never polish.
When you work in the world to earn your living
Do not, for one moment, rely on your own strength.
Self-worshiper, don’t you understand anything yet?

It is God alone that gives your arms their power.
If, by your striving, you achieve something good,
Don’t claim the credit all for yourself;
It is fate that decides who wins and who loses
And all success streams only from the grace of God.

In this world you never stand by your own strength;
It is the Invisible that sustains you every moment.

– by Saadi (1207 – 1291), English version by Andrew Harvey

Hazrat Sultan Bahu RA: The Poet of Revolution within Self

Aap na talib hain kahen de,
Lokaan talib karde hoo.
Chavan khepan karde sepan,
Na Rab de qaihron dared hoo.
Ishq majazee tilkan bazee,
Pair aa valle dharde hoo.
Oh sharminde hosan Baahoo,
Andar roz hashae de hoo.

These false prophets were never disciples themselves,
But they contrive to make disciples of others.
As an act of seeming benefaction,
But they swindle their disciples
Of their money and belongings;
They fear not the wrath of God,
Crooked in their ways, they lose their footing.
In the slippery game of outward love,
Say Bahu: They will regret their doings on the day of judgement

This young modern world of today has forgot the sayings and beautiful poetry of saints and sufis of old times. If we know some sufi poets, they are just known from some sufi music sung by sufi bands or singers like Junoon, Sain Zahoor, Mekaal Hasan Band. Here, I am presenting you a great revolutionary poet whose poetry carries message of peace, love and revolution within the self.

Sultan Bahu (Punjabi: سلطان باہو) (ca 1628 – 1691) was a Muslim Sufi and saint, who founded theSarwari Qadiri Sufi order.Sultan Bahu belonged to the Awan tribe, and was born in Anga, Soon Valley, Sakesar (Vadi-e-Soon Sakesar). Like many other Sufi saints of South Asia, Sultan Bahu was a prolific writer, with more than forty books on Sufism attributed to him. Most of His books are in Persian. However, most of his books deal with specialised subjects related to Islam and Islamic mysticism; it is his Punjabi poetry that had popular appeal and made him a household name in the region. His verses are sung in many genres of Sufi music, including qawwali and kafi. Tradition has established a unique style of singing his couplets.
The mausoleum of Sultan Bahu is located in Garh Maharaja,Punjab, Pakistan. It was originally built on his grave. However, the mausoleum subsequently had to be moved twice when the Chenab River changed its course. It is a popular and frequently-visited Sufi shrine, and the annual Urs festival commemorating his death is celebrated with great fervour. The Urs festival is held during the month of Muharram.

The actual number of books written by Sultan Bahu is not certain. According to tradition, he is supposed to have authored over one hundred works and treatises. The following is a list of the important works of Sultan Bahu that still exist today, and can be traced back to him with credibility. Nurul Huda, Risala-e-Roohi, Aql Baidaar, Mahq-ul-Fuqar, Aurang-Shaahi, Jami-il-Asraar, Taufiq-Hedaayat, Kaleed Tauheed, Ainul Faqr, Shamsul Arifeen, Magzane Faiz, Ameerul Quonain, Asrare Qaderi, Kaleed Jannat, Muhqamul Fuqar, Majaalis-tun Nabi, Muftahul Arifeen, Hujjatul Asraar, Jannatul Firdaus, Kash-ful Asraar, Risaala Ruhi Shareef, Abyaat Bahu (poetry), Muhabbatul Asraar, Ganjul Asraar, Dewaan Bahu, Panj Ganj, Fazlul Laqa, Jhook Sultany, Ameerul Mumineen.

Of the above, Nurul Huda (Light of Guidance) and Risala-e-Roohi (Book of Soul) are the most popular, along with the poetry collection Abiyaate Bahu.
Sultan Bahu written in his book Risala-e-Roohi (Book of Soul) for truth seekers:
He is playing the game of love by Himself
He Himself is the sight
He Himself is the seer
He Himself is the seen
He Himself is Love
He Himself is the lover
He Himself is the beloved

if you lift the veil
(you will see) that in reality, there is only One
Duality is only owing to your squint eyes

I say this, the author of this book
who resides in the sanctuary of His beauty (Jamal)
and grandeur (Jalal)

(I am) the ‘Ha’ of Howiyet
completely absorbed in witnessing the absolute Being
gifted by the Witnessed Omnipresence
(gifted by) the Worshipped One
(I am he) who swings in the cradle of
praise me, how great is my splendour
who being at the station of highest respect
wears the crown of Knowledge of God,
and the crown of His Oneness,
and on whose shoulders
is the robe of reconciliation and purification

(who is at the station of)
‘You are me and I am you’

(who was given) the title of ‘from the truth’
(by) the Absolute Truth

the secret of the Entity of ‘Hu’ (Him)
Faqeer Bahu (May his secret be sanctified)
known as Awan resident of the vicinity of Shorekote
may Allah safeguard him from mischief and oppression

Completely absorbed in the ‘Ha’ of ‘Howiyet’
the author of this book states that
when truly divine grace and favour
was bestowed upon me
which I received as a blessing in the truest sense
then He, who is stationed
at the highest, holiest stations of divine light (noor)
The prophet Muhammad (sm)
(peace and blessing be upon him)
instructed me to guide the people

may they be Muslims,
may they be non-believers,
may they be the fortunate,
may they be the unfortunate ones,
may they be destined to find the truth,
may they be destined to be doomed,
may they be living,
may they be deceased,

Because from his holy tongue,
which emanates the secrets
(The prophet has called me)
Mustafa the second and Mujtaba of the last days

There are two website who are taking forward the mission of spreading message of this great Sufi poet which are:

http://www.hazratsultanbahu.com/
http://www.sultanbahu.com/

Hazrat Sultan Bahu RA have truly shown to this world that how a man can become real human by loving his creator and serving his creations. His whole life gives a message of peace and love to whole human race.

Jo dam ghaafil so dam kaafir,
Murshid eh parhhaaiaa hoo.
Suniaa sukhan gaeeaan khul akheen,
Chit maulaa wal laaiaa hoo.
Keetee jaan havaale Rabb de,
Aisaa ishq kamaaiaa hoo.
Maran ton agge mar gae Baahoo,
Taan matalab noon paaiaa hoo.


My Master taught me a lesson:
“Any moment you are negligent in remembrance of God
is a moment spent in denial of God.”
These words opened my eyes to reality,
And I fixed my attention on the Lord.
I then placed my soul in his protection-
Such was the love I cultivated in my heart.
Having thus bequeathed my soul to him,
I died before death – to live in him.
Only then did I attain the goal of life, O Bahu!

If I ever became President of Pakistan, I will.

Since 64 years of Pakistan’s independence, there has been a chaos between the establishment of Pakistan and the common man of Pakistan. As it has been long debated truth, that only cause of Pakistan’s existence must be implementation of Islamic laws including interest free economy, Qazi Court system , and Punishment laws, so that system of Quran and Sunnah governance can be launched in Muslims.

It’s a proven fact that we can be more secular, liberal or modern living together with Hindus in a combined India, so the only reason to give sacrifice of 50 Lac Muslims was the implementation of Islam as system of governance. Unfortunately, After Quaid’s sudden demise, we completely lost the direction and there came the periods of puppet democracy leading Pakistan in to the worst world of corruption. And there were some real sweet periods of Army dictatorship, where we have enjoyed sanctions of the world and our Army enjoyed the so called country saving governance tenure.

I personally believe that Pakistan needs a presidential system like that of America which is closer to Islamic Khilafat based system, in a sense that there are some peoples who understand the stakes of America and pick those peoples as presidential candidates who are in line with the stakes of America by all means and then public elects them. Islamic Khilafat system is similar to that in a sense that there is Majlis e Shura which selects nominations for Khalifa on the criteria of Quran and Hadith, then common peoples elects out of those nominations.

Coming to the point, if I will ever become president of Pakistan, I will dictate evolutionary revolution in a following way:

1.Quran and Hadith will be the new law of Pakistan, finishing obsolete dualist constitution of 1973.

2.Current Justice and Punishment system will be evolutionarily dissolved in to Qazi Adalat system and Islamic punishments will be implemented in a way it was being implemented in Islam.

3.Interest free economy will be initiated from state bank of Pakistan evolutionarily to all banks of Pakistan.

4.Youth Activists from all parts of Pakistan will be engaged and they will be appointed with Technocrats heading Government machinery and they will assist them so that they can be prepared to lead Pakistan in future.

5. I will invite and choose financial, economic, education,media,foreign policy, Interior Policy experts to decide :

5.1 No To America in every evil thing like Drone Attacks,Aids, Air Bases, NATO Supply.

5.2 No to Begging from any country as Begging will be declared official crime at Government level.

5.3 No to Government Luxurious Lifes No Cars,Bengalas,ACs, Exclusion of Taxes ( Everything like that will be made public property and whole Government machinery will live with the basic salary without facilities till payment of foreign debts. The pay of the Government officials including President will be equal to the wage of Labour. Everyone have to work out for more earnings for his life.

5.4 Answer of one question: How many years of extreme hard work and sacrifice we need to pay our foreign debts?Then these experts will implement all the mentioned decisions with no cushion for a single mistake under the direct reporting of President.

6. Education Minister will be called to end this biased education system which create divisions between rich and poor. All the schools and colleges will be given one syllabus, in which there won’t be any segregated subject of Islamiyat. Infact the whole syllabus of Science and Arts will be re written in light of Quran and Sunnah till 12th class, so that when a child leaves college, he must have strong vision of complete Islam including Jihad.

7. The whole voter list will be crashed and unbiased written plus interview examination will be setup to examine the political stature of the voter. The voter clearing the examination will be given chance to cast his/her vote and there will be mobile and internet votes to save the high budget involve in elections.

8. At National level, Islamic Conference will be called, in which all the famous scholars representing different sects of Islam will be invited to show Islamic Unity on Allah’s oneness and Last Prophet PBUH. That will be ordered to teach common teachings of Islam in masses and anyone teaching biasness or differences in sects will be punished according to Islam. And after words that National Level Conference will exceed to International Ummah Level conference where scholars from the whole world will be called and consensus on unity of Ummah will be developed on common grounds of teachings and Islamic Block of the World will be revived to show the world that Muslims are one, if any Muslim is touched in any part of the world, there will be heavy revenge and strategy will be made to defend muslim majority regions like Kashmir, Palestine, Bosnia.

Yes, I know and agree that most of these things looks practically impossible in current world scenario but with this article of mine, i am re setting the direction for Pakistan, as it was the original theme of Pakistan to make it a Islamic Welfare Leading state which will examplify the glory of Muslim for the whole Ummah. I do not want to live in a fool’s paradise, as i know what is going on in the world. Pakistan is surely in wait of that leader, who will solve this paradox of chaos and lead Pakistan’s way towards its original direction of implementing Islam as a political system of governance. It won’t be by force in any means, it will be extracted from the will of the peoples living here in Pakistan and above all it will be the milk of dream of 50 Lac sacrificers at the time of partition.

It is not important that whether i become President of Pakistan or not, but i will keep striving to take Pakistan to that stage at which Pakistan will become true leader of whole Ummah with all its nukes in the pockets, giving lesson of Khudi ‘self esteem’ to the whole world inshaALLAH very soon.

Exploring Quran: Surah Fatiha’s translation in Poetical way

I had always dreamed of writing Quran’s translation in some poetical form, Although it is in more than poetical form as it is direct conversation of Allah to man. Still i have tried to connect myself with Quran, first time in my life to open some real doors of divine vision on me and tried to write it in simpler words what i have gained, for you. I have started this mission of writing Quran with Surah Fatiha, right from the beginning of Quran.

Poets are often criticized in Quran by ALLAH as they do not say what they do and they do not do what they say. Hakeem Ul Ummat Sir Allama Iqbal RA and Moulana Rumi RA have remained some special kinds of divine visionary poets who have taken message directly from Quran and presented them beautifully in there poems to guide the human race forgetting the real message of Quran. I am a very ordinary student of Sir Iqbal and made a very ordinary effort by taking a step to walk on the foot prints of my teachers. Do pray for me and tell me with your feedback, so that i can synchronize my efforts more deeply with Quran.
Here it is:

QURAN: Surah Fatiha

Urdu Translation

Tareef Kul ki Teray liye ha
Tu Sab Jahanon ka Palany wala ha Allah

Rehman, Raheem ha Sift Teri
Tu Malik e Khair o Jaza ha ALLAH

Karain Teri Ibadat, Madad chahain Tuj say
Humain Seedhi raah py chala day ALLAH

Inaam kia Tu nay Jin py
humain Wo naik raah dikha day ALLAH

Ghazab kia Tu nay Jin py
Us gunah ki raah say bacha lay ALLAH

English Translation

All the praises are for You O Allah
You are the Lord of whole Universe O Allah

The Most Gracious and the Most Merciful are You
You are the Owner of the day of resurrection O ALLAH

We worship You and call You for aid
Guide us to the straight path O Allah

On whom You have bestowed Your Grace
Award us with the way of those O Allah

On whom You have done Your anger
Save us from way of those O ALLAH
