  1. Assalam O Alaikum 14 Safr (Martyrdom of Janab Sakina (AS) Bint Hussain (AS); A daughter is the crown jewel of every father and for him a mercy. Someone like Sakina (as) brings peace to a father like Hussain (AS) whos peace is only in worshipping Allah. Imam Hussain (AS) did not sacrifice his sons only, the price of ransom of Ismail (AS) is beyond the 10th of Muharram. 20 Safr (Chehlum Imam Hussain (AS)): Prophet (SAW) left behind the Quran and his Ahlulbayt (AS) and reminded us of our duty towards both. Muslims raised on spears the Quran (During battle of Siffin, by army of Mawiya), and also the Ahlulbayt (Head of Imam Hussain (AS) and his family raised on spears and marched from Kerbala to Syria). 03 New propositions are being added which highlight the Authority of Allah, his systems, and our views on life and its implications on who we are; Proposition #94: He Only Says To It, Be, And It Is Why are we created?

  2. Assalam O Alaikum I apologize on the belated, but the eventual greeting to a very blessed Ramzan. Prophet (SAW) has expressed his surprise at a man who could not have got his sins forgiven in this month. And as i read somewhere and i would want to re-instate, that today we are more busy about getting motorbikes and awards in Ramzan rather something else. The 15th of this blessed month also marks the Wiladat of Imam Hassan (AS), the prince of paradise, who said; The annihilation of people lies in three things: Arrogance,Greed and envy. Arrogance causes destruction of the religionand because of it Satan was cursed, and Greed is the enemyof one’s soul, and because of it Adam was expelled fromParadise, and envy is the guide to wickedness, andbecause of it Qabil killed Habil Three New propositions are added. Proposition #86: The Empty Vessel Exact Link: http://sdolshah1.brinkster.net/prop87.html Proposition #87: The Bold and Fearless Exact link: http://sdolshah1.brinkster.net/prop88.html What is the key to shun our daily fears and insecurities and stand steadfast? Propisition #88: Perceptions Exact Link: http://sdolshah1.brinkster.net/prop89.html With spiritual ascension comes the change in perceptions. At www.sdol.org Wasalaam
  3. Assalam O Alaikum We start 2016 with the month of Prophet (SAW). In the words of Hassan Bin Thabit (RA); My eyes have never seen anyone more beautiful than you (saw), no woman has begotten anyone more handsome than you (saw), you (saw) have been created without any weakness and blemish! It is as if you (saw) have been created as you wished to be created Some small propositions have been added to get the year running. We need to understand eventuallity and be prepared for it. We need to understand the size of this universe as compared to us. We need to understand how we can make our life on this earth, a reflection of the one in gardens... Proposition: FailuresExact Link: http://sdolshah1.brinkster.net/prop79.html We spend our life in fear of failures, while we do not care about the ultimate one? Proposition: Heaven On EarthExact Link: http://sdolshah1.brinkster.net/prop80.html Can we really make this life of ours, a paradise, a Utopia? Proposition: The Lasting TasteExact Link: http://sdolshah1.brinkster.net/prop81.html What happens when the last bite of your meal is the worst bite? What will be the last moment of our life?

  4. It is not a question but an article which i shared for others to read
  5. Assalam O Alaikum On the occasion of 13th Rajab, I wish all the believers wiladat of Imam Ali (AS). Prophet (SAW) has said that a believer cannot hate Ali (AS) and a hypocrite cannot love Ali (AS). Verily the truth is with Ali (AS). Announcing an addition to our Articles... Article: Ar-Raaziq: Sustaining Faith, Avoiding Fitnah Exact Link: http://sdolshah1.brinkster.net/rizq.html Allah has promised us our sustenance, but has put uncertainty in our hearts pertaining to it. And he has not promised us paradise, yet he has put certainty in our hearts pertaining to it. Earning lawfully and spending lawfully is a testimony to our Kalimah and anything more than that is Kufr. A different angle to how we must look at the Fitnah of our society... At www.sdol.org Wasalaam
  6. Thanks alot for the encoruagement Remember in your prayers wasalaam
  7. Asalam O Alaikum The month of Zil Hajj and these dates mark the event of Hajj, a pilgrimage which if rightly done with the right intentions and resources, is amount to rebirth in Islam, a person free of all past sins. Easier said than done. Hajj in its true essence is a commemoration of the sacrifice of Ibrahim (AS) and because Allah loved the sincerity of the Prophet (AS), he made it a source of remembrance till all times to come. The satan who advised a father not to kill his son is stoned and the father who submitted to the command of Allah became the Khalil. Such is the believer and the Momin of which the Iblish had no knowledge of when he challenged the superiority of man. 9th Zilhaj marks the martydom of Hz Muslim Bin Aqeel (AS), the first sacrifice of Kerbala. Ibrahim (AS) promised for the Imamat to remain in his family, and his (AS) family stood steadfast in the path of Allah and sacrificed their everything in the way of God of Ibrahim (AS) at Kerbala. A new article and Two new propositions are added aiming different parts of our lifes. Article: The Prophets of Allah Exact Link: http://www26.brinkster.com/sdolshah1/pog.html We have not had a time to truly ponder over what the Quran tells us and tries to tells us via various accounts of various prophets. Do we learn from them or read them as a good bed time tale? More importantly, the miracles we associate with pseudos versus miracles which the prophets performed are a contrast different in terms of their purpose and rationality Proposition 1: Balance of Nature Exact Link: http://www26.brinkster.com/sdolshah1/prop68.html Do the evil, the tyrants, the cruel and the arrogant, in professional and personal, in individual and collective capacity, think there is no check and balance over them? Proposition 2: Critical Thinking Critical Exact Link: http://www26.brinkster.com/sdolshah1/prop69.html The way of Ibrahim (AS), the way of monotheism, the thinking of a person is what differentiates him from the cattle..

  8. Asalam O Alaikum The month of Ramadan is full of mercy and blessings for the Believers. The month brings along with it, the Layl Qadar, and commemorations of the Death Anniveraries of Janab Khadija (AS), Hz Abu Talib (AS), Martyrdom of Mawla Kainat Imam Ali (AS), Battle of Badr and Waladat of Imam Hassan Mujtaba (AS). Four new propositions are added aiming different parts of our lifes. Proposition 1: Drop Of Life Exact Link: http://www26.brinkster.com/sdolshah1/prop66.html With believers fasting, a small though on water... Proposition 2: Purpose To Existence Exact Link: http://www26.brinkster.com/sdolshah1/prop64.html Focusing our energies on what really matters..... Proposition 3: Toddler, The Teacher 2 (Too) Exact Link: http://www26.brinkster.com/sdolshah1/prop65.html Continuation of the part 1, some more things we must learn from kids which will lead to our success in both lifes. Proposition 4: Love of 70 Mothers) Exact Link: http://www26.brinkster.com/sdolshah1/prop67.html People say Allah loves us more than seventy mothers and therefore the fire of hell can never touch us because Allah like a mother shall protect us. We must understand the balance between Adl and Rehmat. At www.sdol.org Wasalaam
  9. Asalam O Alaikum The month of Jamadius Saani marks the Birth of the heart of Prophet (SAW), Janab Zahra (AS). Three new propositions are added aiming different parts of our lifes. Proposition 1: The Chief of Believers Exact Link: http://www26.brinkster.com/sdolshah1/prop61.html Leadership has always played an important part in a man's daily life, be it political or spiritual leadership. Just a short piece emphasizing on how everything must have proper leadership. Proposition 2: In God's Image Exact Link: http://www26.brinkster.com/sdolshah1/prop62.html Was man created in God's image? The bible says so. But we definitely have seen gods in our living life! Dedicated to my first son..... Proposition 3: Being A Muslim Exact Link: http://www26.brinkster.com/sdolshah1/prop61.html If muslims had spent more time in educating themselves rather labelling each other as Kaafirs, we would not have been "western" puppets anymore. At www.sdol.org Wasalaam
  10. Asalam O Alaikum The month of Rabialawal marks the Birth of Rasool (SAW) and his great Grandson Imam Jaffar (AS). " My eyes have never seen anyone more beautiful than you (SAW), No woman has begotten anyone more handsome than you (SAW), You (SAW) have been created without any weakness and blemish, It is as if you (SAW) have been created as you (SAW) wished to be created" - Hz Hassan Bin Thabit (RA) An article on the battles/Ghazwats of Prophet (SAW) has been uploaded at SDOL.org. Article: Prophet (SAW) At War Exact Link: http://www26.brinkster.com/sdolshah1/paw.html Traditionalists portray different picture of the Prophet (SAW) on account of what they pass on to us. Some provide justifiable grounds to the so-called Jihadists to kill in the name of Islam. It is not hard to justify when we are taught in school that the Prophet (SAW) killed 900 jewish men who had surrendered, in a market place. It is very important to understand what the Prophet (SAW) had achieved, and when one realizes the trouble the Prophet (SAW) had to go through, his wars become more legendary in nature.

  11. Asalam O Alaikum Download 1: Proposed Religous Reforms + Call for Resolution Against Yazeed 10th Muharram 2013 saw another event in Rawalpindi which resulted in the burning of a mosque and many Imam Bargas. The social media has been misleading the people to cause haterd, and elements are involved to ensure that the fire spreads to the Other parts of the Country. It is therefore our responsibility to ensure that the Muslims unite under one banner. We are therefore proposing certain steps to the government of Pakistan which may ensure a better Pakistan for tomorrow. Your support is requested to spread the message accross to make sure the right people hear our proposal and implement it for the betterment of the country. Also we will send out the letter formally within a week so your suggestions and feedback are awaited to ensure that the right message goes forward. The letter draft can be found at SDOL.org Downloads section and also attaching with this email; At www.sdol.org Wasalaam Honorable Representative of the People of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Being a Pakistani and a Muslim a certain responsibility lies on me and on all of us towards the society we live in, for ourselves and our inheritors. This is with respect to the Rawalpindi incident of 15 November 2013 which was termed as “sectarian violence”. The term sectarian violence does not exist and I believe that the masses should be enlightened as to which sect and as to what violence. The chaos Is amongst even the educated, who are spreading malicious messages via social media, some do not even know what had happened. Please understand that half of my family is a Sunni and the other half is a Shia. I had more Sunni friends in my life, school, colleges, university and even at job as compared to Shia friends (naturally because Shias are a lesser populace). And this is not my story. Millions of families, Sunnis and Shias have similar social bonds and co-exist peacefully and harmoniously despite all of the differences. Shias and Sunnis can coexist and have proven for 1400 years, after all both are Muslims and the bond of Islamic brother hood is stronger always than the hands of fitnah, to whom only the weak of faith fall. This fact is also reflected that the religious jamaats of Pakistan have never won a majority and people vote beyond the sect, Sunnis getting Shia votes as well and vice versa. On the other hand it is also a reality that propagandists and terrorists have often targeted mosques and Imambargas, specifically Azadari and have managed to misguide the public about the true facts. Alot of this is due to our some of our (claimed) religious leads and scholars and muftis who issue baseless fatwas and are in nature, heretics. Please understand that Shias are not brought up by being groomed that some one else is a kaafir, neither are they groomed to kill and behead civilians. They are neither groomed to target innocents or mosques. It is a fact that all of the terrorist organizations today in operation in Pakistan have proven links with a certain school of thought and that school of thought is anti-shia where Fatwas to kill are openly distributed on the social media and pamphlets. This is added to the fact that Shias are a minority in the country, and are outnumbered maybe 1 to 10,000 when it comes to armed militant groups, that too if shias are running one which I have personally never heard of and thus doubt. These defactos state that Shias will not initiate something this ugly which lead to the events of Rawalpindi Incident of 10th Muharram, 15 November 2013. However as ignorance exists, it does not see where it exists, it just does. Sunnis and Shias both have ignorant factions amongst them which also includes some of their leaders and speakers and Aalims, who should frankly be banned. All mosques and Imambargas which are proven to spread hatred and messages against Islam or its spirit and the unity of the Ummah must be thoroughly investigated, and subsequently be demolished after formal approvals which include an impartial and thorough scrutiny of the investigative evidence. But before this, the people must be educated that Prophet Muhammad (SAW) himself destroyed a mosque which housed mischief, the Masjid Dirar; The Quran states in Surah 9, Ayah 107 to 110; “And those who built a masjid to cause harm and for unbelief and to cause disunion among the believers and an ambush to him who made war against Allah and His Messenger before; and they will certainly swear: We did not desire aught but good; and Allah bears witness that they are most surely liars.Never stand in it; certainly a masjid founded on piety from the very first day is more deserving that you should stand in it; in it are men who love that they should be purified; and Allah loves those who purify themselves. Is he, therefore, better who lays his foundation on fear of Allah and (His) good pleasure, or he who lays his foundation on the edge of a cracking hollowed bank, so it broke down with him into the fire of hell; and Allah does not guide the unjust people. The building which they have built will ever continue to be a source of disquiet in their hearts, except that their hearts get cut into pieces; and Allah is Knowing, Wise.” Pakistan has allowed a lot of things in the name of freedom. We must realize that Pakistan is an Islamic state governed by the principles of Quran which are mimicry of Adl or Justice. We cannot allow homosexuality in the name of freedom, freedom of speech, or human rights. Similarly, we must take a step forward, which I believe will if not rectify Pakistan’s problems, will atleast identify all the elements openly which are creating the problem and against which the state must act in order to save the nation. We request the Parliament of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, to pass a resolution and make part of the law, forbidding of promotion of Yazid bin Mawiya in honorary terms. Yazid has the blood of the Ahlulbayt (AS) of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) on his hands, yet some sections of the society defend his heinous crime and raise him to a position worthy of praise. If dishonoring the Ahlulbayt (AS) of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is blasphemous, then honoring their killers is equally blasphemous. When hypocrisy was intermingled with the true spirits of Islam, Imam Hussain (AS) rose and with his rise, all of the elements which were working against Islam were uncovered and ever since have been clearly identifiable; their proof of hypocrisy and kufr being their opposition to Imam Hussain (AS). Today Pakistan is also a confused nation, not knowing how to separate the religion from the hypocrites and the ignorant. The parliament should Take a step and ban all public and private glorification of Yazeed Ibn Mawiya and make it mandatory to use the word Laeen or Lanatullah with him, for the accursed acts of tyranny he had committed. This will help Pakistan in two things; 1. It will bring together all Muslims of Pakistan, Shias and Sunnis, as this feeling against Yazeed is emotionally shared amongst the Muslims and it is the duty of the parliament to respect the feelings of the Muslims. 2. It will highlight the “terrorist” organizations which work under the cover of Islamic Tableegh. It is only common sense, that minds which defend the honor of Yazeed even after knowing what he did, will be the minds which will do Yazeedi acts under the cover of Islam and today it is very important to cut off such elements from Islam. If you think that this is a pointless demand, then please approve our request as it will neither benefit you/us, nor harm you/us. If you think that this will increase hatred amongst the sects, then you are wrong, this will only increase hatred amongst the lovers of humanity and those who use the cover of humanity to operate their filthiness. I know and as will you with time, that although this demand is as per the laws of the Quran and as per the spirit of the Shariah of Prophet (SAW), you will face a lot of challenge in passing this resolution. The state must also enforce its writ by ensuring the following subsequently; 1. Nominate a panel of scholars, most reputable, from all notable school of thoughts and make them as a stake holder to all decisions of the state relevant to religious masses, including banning and arresting of specific religious speakers who speak without responsibility, and demolishing of mosques and Imambargas which have been constructed on illegal land and which are proven to spread Fitnah 2. Just like the parliamentarian, the Imam of every Mosque, Madressah and Imambarga must have a basic graduation and strict actions to be taken against the non compliant 3. Every mosque, madressah and Imambarga to submit to a panel of selected experts, the contents of the speech which is to be made by the Imam / Mufti / Allama on occasions of Eid, Jummah, Muharram or other religious events, for approval. Any material deviations from the recorded and approved speech to be penalized appropriately 4. Any violations of the above 3 should be tried at the Anti-Terrorism Court The first step although, must start with the “Ban” on Yazeed ibn Mawya, and then listen from where the voice of agitation against this comes from. These will be the elements the state will need to reform and act against. I request those who understand why this is being proposed, to help the cause by spreading it to our families, friends and via social media, and let us ensure that the message gets across to the right people, who by the will of Allah almighty will take the right decision. Together, we must take a first step towards restoring humanity to our country which dearly needs it. May Allah curse the killers of Hussain (AS), his progeny and his companions.
  12. Asalam O Alaikum 10th Muharram marks the sacrifice of Imam Hussain (AS) along with his brave family and companions. An event so powerfully multidimensional which triggers varios reactions in varios factions, but all targetting to achieve spiritual alleviation. The head which they desired to bow... was the head they were forced to raise themselves (on spears)... As a tribute to the martyrs of Kerbala, an article and a proposition are added at SDOL.org Article: Investigating Islam's Shortcomings Exact Link: http://www26.brinkster.com/sdolshah1/tripod.html Islam has been defamed around the world and muslims have been killed on the hands of muslim militants in the name of Islam. Why are our leaders today so reluctant to decide a strategy to eliminate terrorism from the ranks of Islam and protect the honor of Islam itself? What is Imam Ali's role in all of this? A controversial topic but with intent to show the other side of perspective, reading requires patience and background knowledge on various historical events. Proposition: The Link Exact Link: http://www26.brinkster.com/sdolshah1/prop60.html A short write up with a request to all to come out on the streets to mark the Ashura, so that our numbers show that humanity is still left within us and our figh against terrorism; Our show of solidarity with Syedus Shuhda Imam Hussain (AS)...
