Five Reasons Why Pakistan is in Such A Mess


Prophet Muhammad (s) said:

Oh group of Muhajireen, I seek refuge in Allah for you from five following things:

Cause of New diseases and pandemics like dengue fever, swine flu ,aids etc

“In a nation where immorality becomes widespread and publicly immoral activities start taking place( unislamic dress code, free mixing,music,dancing,theatre,movies,billboards,dating,flirting, fornication,adultry) then Allah will send plague and other such diseases which never affected the people before them.”

Cause of corrupt government and president

“Those people who cheat in measurements and weight(cloth,fruits,vegetable sellers,electricity etc) Allah will send famine and financial difficulties to them and will install a cruel  king over them.”

Cause of Wheat Sugar Crisis

“Those people who stop giving zakat on their wealth, Allah Tala stops the rain from them. If it was not for the cattle, then it would have never rained for them.”

Cause of American interference drone attacks on our soil

“Those people who break their oaths (say the kalimah but do not act as Muslims,mutual agreements etc), Allah tala sends an out side enemy over them who snatches away some of the things under their control.”

Cause of religious intolerance and disunity

“When their scholars leave the  religion of Allah and stop acting upon the Quran, then Allah Tala causes them to fight amongst themselves”

This hadith has been recorded in Sunan Ibn Majah with somewhat different words but same meanings.

14th August: Celebrating another year of ‘lipservice’


ON August 14th

Pakistani Musicians: [The people who “love” Pakistan the most] Hide your jeans and T Shirts.. n if a female singer – all your western  dresses… adorn a White Shalwar Kameez and sing your Love for Pakistan and claim to be a Proud Pakistani.

Way of Celebration: Hold some concerts or TV Shows…. sing one or two patriotic songs…wave some flags, wear a patriotic badge

Pakistanis: [Wearing a patriotic badge…waving the national flag] Instead of working for the country, take a holiday on 14th August and claim your patriotism…I love Pakistan I’m Proud to be Pakistani I will do this for my country.. i will do that for my country…blah blah blah

Way of Celebration: Wave the flags on your bikes, cars, shops and houses. Get rid of the silencers of your motor bikes – head towards sea view. Break all hell loose by destroying everything that comes in your way.. gas stations..sign boards, footpaths, shops in the meanwhile creating traffic jams and creating unbearable noise pollution that make the life of fellow Pakistanis living along Khataban e Ittehad and Sea View miserable.

Pakistani Government: Celebrating 60 years of Independence, We have done this for our country.. that for our country.. itnee Tarraqi huee hai.. itna kaam hua hai.. blah blah..

Way of Celebration :Appear on some TV Show.. reiterate your (fake) love for Pakistan and (non) hardwork you have done. Listen to and shake hands with the respectable female Pakistani singers…

Rest of the Year :

Pakistani Musicians: Pakistan ? What Pakistan… Shalwar Kameez..??? Ewww backwards.. adorn your jeans and shirts, do your utmost to look like western singers or Movie Stars and sing songs of love for your beloved. Make vulgar videos copying western singers and Indians. Throw down in the gutter all social values of being a Muslim and a Pakistani. Go out of Pakistan at every possible opportunity… try to get Indian or American/British/Canadian Nationality so you dont have to live in this country…

Pakistanis: Try and make as much money as possible, by hook or by crook. Defraud, cheat and lie and steal. Steal electricity, take bribes, throw kachra everywhere, spit out paan, break traffic laws. Never get to your office on time.. leave office early, do chutti when ever you want. Celebrate everything and everyday by asking for a public holiday. [If people are given the choice.. they would work once a month- rest of the days should be a public holidy – great service to the nation.!!] If you want to protest.. go set some restaurant on fire or some other shop on fire.
Government of Pakistan: Go back to looting the country.

In the end.. everybody is the same. All our claims are nothing but a lipservice. because lip service is easy, all you need to do is move your tongue. Words like hard Work, punctuality, dedication, sincerity and loyalty do not belong in our dictionary of patriotism.

Heart Breaking Stories of IDPS from Sawat


Source: www.farhathashmi.com

Rasool Allah salallahu Alayhe Wasallam said, “A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim, so he should not oppress him, nor should he hand him over to an oppressor. Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfill his needs; whoever brought his (Muslim) brother out of a discomfort, Allah will bring him out of the discomforts on the Day of Resurrection, and whoever screened a Muslim, Allah will screen him on the Day of Resurrection.” (Bukhari)

The tragedy that has unfolded in front of us over the past few weeks tells of heartrending stories of irreparable loss. Each family has a story to tell. Some experiences are shared here:

* An old man who belonged to Swat asked his family to leave their home in 10-15 minutes when he came to know about the orders of the Army. In the mean time, he rushed to pick his new born child who had been wrapped in a blanket. After covering some distance, the most shocking fact of his life became evident to him—in the panic and rush he had picked up a pillow instead of his baby! He could not go back to look for him because of the strict curfew there. All his life he will have to live with the bitter truth that his child was left there all alone waiting for his death.

* Another old man who lived on top of one of the Swat hills had a disabled daughter who could not walk properly. The man was so old that it was not possible for him to lift her up and take her along. So, he left her with food and all the necessary items close by. He does not know whether she is alive or not, whether she is safe or became a victim of the bombings of the Talibaan or the Army.

* A pregnant lady who was leaving the area with her family started having labour pains during her journey in a truck. As there were a lot of males around, they were asked to get down in order to leave the pregnant lady alone with other females–this moment was also very embarrassing for the other females. The poor lady had no other choice–she delivered the baby in a truck wailing in pain.

* A woman at Yaar Hussain Camp was a proud mother back home of seven sons happily living together in the same house. After this operation started, she had to leave one of her sons with her disabled husband and crying miserably she told us that six of her sons were now missing and she was not aware whether they were alive or dead.

* An old lady at Pirpai Village had a swollen stomach. On interviewing her, we came to know that she had a wound and still had stitches in her stomach. She had only picked up her X-rays and medical reports while rushing out of her residence.

* An old woman at Jalozai Camp shared one of the most touching stories. She said that she was among those who had given charity to victims of previous disasters. She had donated almost eight trucks fully loaded with wheat and rice for the Bajaur affectees, and now she was sitting in a tent empty handed and all alone.

* A young girl at Jalozai Camp came from an affluent family with vast assets and wealth. She got married just a week before this shocking incident in her life. She shared that she lived such a luxurious life that her furniture amounted Rs one lakh. Yet, she came to the camps with nothing in her hands.

* The University Campus, Peshawar has accommodated 214 girls in different hostels. On asking the warden about their requirements, a pressing concern to which attention was drawn was the lack of adequate food for those girls. She also spoke about the absence of government support for them. After discussing this issue, the team thought of two options for solutions: they could coordinate with the government agencies through the Vice Chancellor to get help, or provide assistance independently from Al-Huda.

Why is our new ruler worst than his predecessor?


The situation of Pakistan has gone from bad to worst since our new president came into office. It seems he is no better than the previous one and is infact the worst thing that could have happened to Pakistan.

The question is why? Why are all our leaders, politicians,MNAs MPAs corrupt? Why do they cheat and lie and are only interested in filling their bank accounts? Are politicians the only such breed of Pakistanis with no morals or principles?

The answer is no!

Majority of the Pakistanis – I would say 95% of Pakistanis are corrupt, selfish, liars and cheaters and would not leave any opportunity to cheat and fool others so that they can fill their own pockets.. Yes I am a 100% Pakistani and I am not afraid to admit that we as nation have failed and we as a nation have no morals or principles.

Go to a shop, and if you are not on your guard, the shopkeeper will give you less change and it is usually the ladies who are the victims. Once a shop keeper tried to cheat me of 500 hundered rupees. I asked him three times to count and he kept insisting that this was the right amount. It was only when my brother came in that he admitted his mistake.

Go out shopping and you might be given less cloth than what you paid for or will sell you a cheaper quality cloth while swearing that they have the “pure” top quality cloth…

Buy some fruits and vegetables and if you don’t check, you’ll end up with rotten fruit and vegetables instead of the fresh ones displayed on the thaila. Oh and don’t expect you’ll get the right weight which you paid for…

Call a plumber or an electrician to your home to fix things and they will ask for exorbant amounts! Once a plumber was called and he asked for 500 rupees to change the leaking faucet. The other plumber was called and he charged only 20.

If you have ever had the experience of getting a house constructed, you would know what I am talking about. With a such a project you need to deal with masons, plumbers, electricians, laborers, carpenters, etc etc and it should be enough to make your blood boil.. When my mother and brother were getting the house constructed while my father was abroad, trust me every one who got the chance cheated… the wood would vanish from the house, the cement would always be running out, the electricians would not come on time, wrong bathroom fittings were sent and what not!

Go to get any official work done and you will be openly asked to pay bribes before your work/application can proceed. Individuals in their office would take advantage of and misuse office supplies, telephone, stationery etc

Bribery, theft, cell phone snatching, car snatching – all these crimes are increasing day by day.

What a sorry picture of our nation. Whether it be a poor thaila wala or a shop wala , a simple looking electrician, an office worker , a government official or a rich bureaucrat – everyone in their own capacity wants to take undue advantage or cheat others so they can fill their pockets or make some additional profit! Basic qualities like honesty, sincerity, selflessness, punctuality, loyalty are no where to be seen

Prophet Muhammad (s) said regarding the relation between the rulers and the ruled:

As you are, so will be the rulers that will be set over you” (Mishkaat).

So corrupt leaders and politicians should not  come as a surprise to us., they are just a reflection of the citizens. If we want change, if we want justice, if we want loyal sincere and honest leaders we will have to clean up our own act first.
