The story of Muhammad Iqbal, a turn of the century poet/philosopher from South Asia. Through Iqbal’s work we open a dialog between the East and West, refute the notion of a class of civilizations and discover our shared humanity.

THE RISE OF ISLAM by Allama Iqbal

This film seeks to answer the misunderstood question: “Where are the moderate Muslims?” and it decisively shows us they are here, their voices are strong, and they have been with us for quite some time.
Muhammad Iqbal was a man who understood the nature of contradiction and the necessity of balancing the converging forces in our lives. An inspiration to the people of the subcontinent and an advocate of cultural understanding and peace, Iqbal was instrumental in the stages leading up to the Partition of India and the Creation of Pakistan. A poet, philosopher, lawyer, and a political activist, Iqbal spoke of the power we have as individuals to strengthen ourselves and our communities through respect for the cultural other and by being engaged with the present moment. Through the inspiration of the 13th Century Mystical Poet Rumi from Turkey, Iqbal believed the problems of his own time would not be solved unless we had a greater understanding of ourselves. It is our responsibility to be actively involved in our own communities and co-creators of the world we wish to see.
In order for us to understand the current situation in Pakistan and Afghanistan and the rising paranoia of Radical Extremism we need to look at this critical point of history to understand those who where concerned with these same issues 100 years ago.
In a post-9/11 world that is rampant with paranoia and cultural misconceptions it is now more important than ever to embrace those elements which unite us as people rather than to focus on the differences which divide us. The greatest problems of the 21st Century have little to do with radical extremism and everything to do with our perceptions of ourselves and each other. The message of Iqbal is a strikingly contemporary one which encourages us to overcome our suspicions and doubts. Ahead of his time, he understood Einstein’s Theory of Relativity as a vehicle to bridge the differences between Religion and Science. Iqbal will go down in history as a Revolutionary Thinker who spoke for the freedom and dignity of all people.
The basis of Iqbal’s message is clearly represented in his 1938 New Years Address shortly before his death:
“Only one unity is dependable and that unity is the brotherhood of man, which is above race, nationality, color or language. So long as this so-called democracy, this accursed Nationalism, and this degraded imperialism are not shattered, so long as men do not demonstrate by their actions that they believe that the whole world is the family of God, so long as distinctions of race, color and geographical nationalities are not wiped out completely, they will never be able to lead a happy and contented life and the beautiful ideals of liberty, equality, and fraternity will never materialize.” – Allama Muhammad Iqbal

Where is our attention?Prayer


To everyone who can read it well:

Where is our attention?

What gonna happen if doctor while operating someone do a mistake and do not work attentively ?

What gonna happen if a driver do not focus on drive ?

What gonna happen if pilot or captain of a plane/or aircraft do not focus?

What gonna happen if an architecture do not focus on building base and they raise a building and miss something in base?

There are so many whats gonna happen if you miss the attention in day to day jobs and our duties.

Similarly what gonna happen if you do not listen your boss attentively and look somewhere else and talk to him ?

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

When we stand before ALLAH ALMIGHTY with understanding our every bit of the concept of ALLAH and ALLAH existence and MIGHT.

How we can loss our focus and attention?

How we can not focus to HIM rather thinking other things?

How we do not focus the way we are suppose and should be ?

Bottom line : Understand and again I will say understand:

Our dress and directions and tidy are all important but the fact is when we be bow our existence to ALLAH that is the demand of prayer. This is the way  to stand before the Owner of all universes and creatures.

And this is demand of faith and believe

Not people and not what others thing but focus and attention with understanding of ALLAH.

I pray and seek from ALLAH to the path and understanding and faith and believe for us and for all of us. When we leave all our matters to ALLAH with Faith. ALLAH will take care of all our matters and issue in best way because  ALLAH is best Caring and Wiser and Owner of ALL.

#ALLAH #God #prayers #prayer #believe #faith

As some blessing reach to us its equal responsibility on all of us to reshare to people around us because blessings are for all none of us owns it 🙂 Allah Bless you all and keep you in peace and understanding to objective of life.

Azaan The call for Prayer


Azaan

 Adhan (Azaan) (أَذَان) is the Islamic call to prayer, recited by the muezzin. The root of the word is ʼḏn “to permit”, and another derivative of this word is uḏun, meaning “ear.”

Adhan is called out by the muezzin from a minaret of a mosque five times a day summoning Muslims for fard (mandatory) salah (prayers). There is a second call known as iqama that summons Muslims to line up for the beginning of the prayers.


الله اكبر

اشهد ان لا اله الا الله

اشهد ان محمدا رسول الله
اشهد ان محمدا رسول الله

حي على الصلاة
حي على الصلاة

حي على الفلاح
حي على الفلاح

الله اكبر

لا اله الا الله

English Translation of Adhan:

Allah is Great
Allah is Great

Allah is Great
Allah is Great

I bear witness that there is no god except the One God (Allah)
I bear witness that there is no god except the One God (Allah)

I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah

Hurry to the prayer (Rise up for prayer)

Hurry to success (Rise up for Salvation)

Allah is Great

There is no god except the One God (Allah)

Azaan at Masjid Al Haram

Azaan by Sheikh Mishary 

The following dua is optionally read by Muslims after the adhan is recited:

O God! Lord of this complete call and prayers of ours, by the blessing of it (Allahumma rabba hadhi-hid dawa-tit-tamma wa-salatil qae-ma) اللهم رب هذه الدعوة التامة والصلاة القائمة

Give to Muhammad his eternal rights of intercession (Ati muhammadanil wasilata wal fadeela) آت محمداً الوسيلة و الفضيلة

And raise him to the rank you have promised him (Wab ath-hu maqamam-mahmuda-nil ladhi wa at-ta) وابعثه مقاماً محموداً الذي وعدته
