1- It is interesting to note as observation clarifies that those born on or about 21 of March of any year have a great spiritual leaning while those born on or within a day or two of the 1st of January of any year, value physical and material things very much so this attitude can be seen in both of these. Mind it that both of these dates have a definite value in every year as one marks the beginning of a solar year while the other marks the beginning of a calendar year respectively.2- The year 1917 proved very troublesome and a severe blow to Muslims as it was the year when Communists gained power in Russia which put Muslims in a great trouble while a conspiracy regarding Palestine took hold as the countries having Power decided to put it in the hands of the Jewish people. Both incidents happened in November that year. The year also put Kamal Pasha in front who proved totally disastrous to the Islamic cause and in fact in this year, division among Muslims of the world took hold due to one reason or other. The year 1917 was also the year of the birth of Indira Ghandi (who was born in November and her feelings against Islam are not a secret at all), of the Shah of Iran and of the U.S. President John F. Kennedy.
3- Bait-Ul-Muqaddas (Jerusalem) it seems, is a symbol for worldly glory since it was built, as the history points out. Much political power remained with those who held Bait-Ul-Muqaddas and even today when USA enjoys a great influence on Israel that holds the place, it is clear that the political power is with that country i.e. USA. Even the Jewish people hold a strong position in the world politics at this time through the USA, while it seems that we Muslims have lost our political touch with the loss of the Bait-Ul-Muqaddas, our third holy place.4- Cold Blooded People are mostly born in the cold weather and I think you will find this statement going very well with doctors and their assistants. Those who do not care much about the lives of others, they often face a threat of a sudden death and their lives may end abruptly, very accidentally.
5- To take anybody as equal to Allah is the greatest sin, for it is a challenge to the power of Allah and a very wrong rebellious act. Nobody except Him must be given the greatest regards for He only is the True Lord. Nobody must be called for help taking that person as the true benefactor for He only is the true Benefactor. Nobody must be called as such, leaving Him or with Him for both of these come under the definition of the greatest sin. May Allah save all Muslims from this greatest sin.6- There are two positions in economic sense for the people which by the Islamic viewpoint, are totally wrong. In other words, these two positions must not be found in an Islamic Society as one points towards the wrong outlet for the human incentive while the other, towards the wrong channeling of the human fear. One is of having too much money that million remain in spare even after spending on necessities and even comforts, while the other position is of experiencing total frustration as there is nothing on person to spend even on basic necessities of life. These two positions are the ones that give rise to crimes and lead to neglect human responsibilities. The Islamic Society must never overlook the basic necessities of an individual, both physical and spiritual for the sake of humanity.
7- The Holy KAABA is a symbol of Spirituality. It is at the center of the earth as the heart in the human body. It is a point to note that Muslims with all their shortcomings, have great spirituality still in them and so still hold the position of looking after this Great Holy House, the first house of Allah.8- JINN, one of the strange creatures created by Allah, have physical powers much more than the human beings while the human beings possess spiritual power much more than these. That is why Jinn try to possess human beings physically with the power of the body while the human beings attack them or try to get control over them by spiritual power. However, the use of physical power by Jinn in this sense and the use of spiritual power by human beings in this manner is totally wrong by the Islamic viewpoint indeed.
9- It is a point to note that material possessions & wealth have no meaning when the basic necessities are satisfied. That is how I take it. However, one must judge one's necessities by one's own self keeping the Islamic teachings in view as Muslims have been relied upon for this judgment about their needs and necessities.10- Even this is an imagination that water satisfies the thirst for it is only the means. It must be noted that everything is the creation of Allah and He only is the Creator & Truly Powerful. What good or evil we do to each other has its effect only due to Allah's Will. Fire can't burn and water can't satisfy the thirst except for His Will. So everything is a means and Allah only is the True Provider. Superstitions do have their effect and if someone has some of them and cares about the influence of some creation but keeping strongly in mind and believing totally by heart that the True Lord is Allah only, then he must not be blamed as his stance is not wrong by the Islamic viewpoint though he must not put emphasis on negative points.
11- It is a position of influence held by a person that matters a lot in influencing others. Sometimes a person does easily what quite a collection of people find hard to accomplish. These type of exceptional people have influenced the world very much. The powerful position in some field may lead to handle foes who master other fields but not to that caliber the first one has in his field. Even inner power turned against someone for his harm may be countered beautifully by the physical power if the caliber for the physical power is high and the individual is a good person by character. I remember a dream I saw some years ago which contained this very message in it. I saw a very little thing like a flying star that is trying to cause harm to a very strong man (Tarzan or Samson) and the door of the area is closing on him. The star inflicts on him some wounds but even then the strong man with the power of his amazing strength stops the door from closing in a heroic style. There are indeed more than one way to do a thing but a man must always be very sincere to his cause, good at his heart and once he sees and accepts a way for doing a job, he must go on with total heart to handle the matter that way with total trust in Allah, the True Lord.12- Pakistan, created in the name of Allah, is indeed a sacred land. Although, love of material gains has created great troubles for Muslims yet at present, Pakistan seems to be the only hope for a total Islamic Society. Pakistan came into being on Ramazan 26, 1366 Hijri and not on 27 as is often said, for it was 26 on Thursday Aug. 14, 1947. By astrological consideration, the ninth sign Sagittarius is associated with it, therefore the time is afternoon which puts the Sun in the ninth house and that is the house of this very sign Sagittarius, the Fire Mutable Sign, in its own sign Leo which accidentally rules the ninth house, denoting a great height in the religious knowledge (and this is greatly enhanced by the Trine aspect of Moon with Jupiter while the part of Fortune is also in conjunction with Jupiter in the twelfth), in Faith and in its application for the sake of the Truth. Fortuna is with Jupiter, the ruler, in Scorpio while Moon's South Node is also at the end of Scorpio in twelfth which asks to make the Islamic Society in an heroic style making a revolution on the basis of Love, appealing for the sympathy for the weak, attaching the self to the Great Past if Muslims have to make up for their mistakes and wrong doings as that is the only way out. Mind it that those having a powerful Scorpio, specially connected with their ascendant, have a great power to hypnotize themselves into some another individual, even an ideal one, which makes their reading most difficult. Here the sign Sagittarius is rising with the ruler Jupiter in Scorpio and the Sun & Moon correspond beautifully to these signs by their house placement respectively as the Sun is in the ninth, the natural house of Sagittarius, and the Moon is in the eight, the natural house of Scorpio, both of them strong as they both are in their own signs by their placement, an amazing set-up and a harmonious lay-out. However, with the positions that Paksitan has, it needs a lot to survive. It might do it but possibly at some other sphere becoming totally Islamic finding its birth again with some other natal chart. It has the power to compensate for its mistakes indeed. Now, for the ideal person, let us say that an ideal person will have Pisces rising, for it enfolds all other signs, and Mars, Sun & Jupiter in their own Fire signs, forming a Grand Trine among the second, sixth and tenth houses; Moon in conjunction with the stationed Jupiter in Sagittarius at 10th while the other benefic Venus also stationed in Cancer in conjunction with Neptune that is the ruler in the ideal chart and in conjunction with the recently found planet Eris, in the fifth house. The positions are to be seen by the equal house system. Fortuna will then come into place at this conjunction of Venus, Neptune & Eris while Mercury and Pluto both remain combust in this ideal chart; Saturn & Uranus both in Conjunction at the fourth house at I.C. opposing both Jupiter & Moon which are placed at M.C. These two planets rule eleventh & twelfth houses respectively in this ideal nativity. The Moon's South Node is at the position of the Sun in the sixth house where the two combust planets are also placed. With this ideal situation, a great height can be achieved in leading the life on the Truth indeed. There is no Retrograde planet in the mentioned chart but it is to be remembered that when a planet is retrograde in a chart, it does not show any lack in the make-up of the person but informs that the native has other attitudes than the usual at hand (and that does not necessarily mean an abnormal attitude) for those special matters which is denoted by the retrograde planet in the natural sense. It may also have the meaning of "Keeping away from the Planet (its meaning)" or "Checking the attitudes regarding the Planet (its meaning)" which does not show any lack in the character of the person in study.
13- In today's world, the field of Medicine is given great importance by all and if Islamic Morals are seen in this I am sure that it would be only matter of time for Islamic Society to come into existance as Islamic Morals are mostly needed in this very field. If Teachers, Medical Practitioners and Judges become true to Islam in their Belief, Knowledge and Deed, it would only be a matter of time when we would see the Islamic Society in full flow with all its teachings in practice of all people well.14- History points out that wherever & whenever Muslims lost their battles, it was much due to violent means and physical pressures applied by their enemy and due to the Muslim's own lack of Islamic morals at the time of combat. Muslims have always conquered hearts through their good character. The greatest of all revolutions was by the great man and the last messenger Muhammad P.B.U.H. with total love for all the people as every Muslim knows that when he entered Mecca at its conquest, he forgave all the enemies who have mentally & physically tortured him for a long time. We have seen that in this time that is called a "developed" period, those who consider themselves as totally developed nations have shown such wild animal traits, when they had been challenged and when their innocent people were attacked and murdered, putting the blame to all those who were near to those wrong doers with a philosophy "as you have killed my brother, I would kill yours" that has shown clearly that though metals and other elements have developed yet human beings still have to develop a lot for sure. We must work in accordance with our great tradition of love so that the world might really change by this great power of love for once & for all, for good indeed.
15- For the sake of making an Islamic Society, two steps in each of the 3 fields i.e. Education, Medicine & Law are very necessary. -1- (a) Children must not be beaten and examinations must not be held in the official educational system (b) Education after the Tenth class must not be extended to females by the males (I do advocate Female education and I would like to point out here that after the Tenth class in a Pakistani educational system, female education would only be given by females to females) -2- (a) Men must not tend women in the medicinal system except for minor problems (and those too not gynecological or obstetrical) and women must not nurse male patients (b) Post-mortem whether the cadaver is male or female must not be done for any reason at all by any male/female surgeon -3- (a) No accused should be beaten except for the verdict given (b) No photos of living beings must be allowed except for necessity specially for the defense of the country (I consider that the Computer is a wonderful instrument that must not only be tolerated in the Islamic Society but must be encouraged for the sake of knowledge though it is a point to note that apparatus based on satellites in common use have created a lot of moral problems by the Islamic viewpoint due to establishment of social relationship of all peoples of the world very fast where non-Muslims understand Islam but little, so if necessary all satellite apparatus would have to be abandoned for the establishment and strength of an Islamic Society insha Allah, and computer would only be accepted without any touch of satellite connection). TV can also be tolerated taking care about morals in the programs aired, even if the transmission is not live while still camera would only be used for official needs and not privately. Other things that convey appearance must be avoided. All these things can be implemented fully if the leaders are true to the cause of Islam.16- The Holy Quran says "Soon We would show them our signs in the Horizons and in their Own Selves until it would be clear upon them that this (the coming of the day of Judgment as told in the Holy Quran) is the Truth" (Sura HA-MEEM ASSAJDA - 53). This verse is not only a prediction for the Non-Mulims that they would soon find many Laws of Nature that would in the last make them realize that there is an end to come which has proven correct now, but also encourages Muslims to use their observation power to understand the universe and the human beings so that all the truth becomes clear to them. This knowledge gained through observation; when this is put in total in front of non-Muslims, will certainly have its effect and they will most certainly come towards Islam. There are many things which have come into the knowledge of man through observation even in the fields of science & medicine and this will be understood better if we divide science into two sections -1- things which can be proved through experiments in laboratories and -2- things which can be understood by observation. These second type of things include great discoveries and laws which are taken as very important findings for the understanding of the natural tendencies of human beings and for getting a good idea about the universe. These include Newton's Law of Gravity and even his other laws of motion, Kepler's Laws governing the movement of planets and stars and Doppler's Law of Red Shift. These all are related to the planets & stars and to the sky, which is too vast for a human mind to perceive but the laws of which can be understood through observation. There are many such facts & laws which have their basis upon observation though of course it is not prohibited to put into use instruments which enhance a person's observation and gives a power to sight like telescope & microscope but to seek knowledge through the laboratory experiments is not my idea of achieving knowledge and in fact many of experiments have proved to be fatal for the life and the living of the human beings as can be verified by study and observation. On the basis of experiments, science has guided many a nation to consider space flights as a must for knowledge while it would have been very much better if amazingly huge amount spent on these ventures were allotted to the very poor and the very needy people of the world. Science has led people to consider communications as something of utmost importance giving an unnecessary weight to the social relationship while it should also have asked to better the situation of people suffering great tensions regarding basic physical needs and regarding basic spiritual needs. Scientific experiments have also led to making of deadly weapons and this has in turn led to the fear of the powerful which has given such people a wrong kind of a say in the matters relating to all people of the world. Whenever, Hope or/and Fear has been guided in a wrong manner, that has led to the loss of peace of an individual and also to the loss of a good lifestyle for the people. To break such evil-doings of science, it is necessary to give power to observation as the Islamic teachings point out that where there is a poison, exactly there at that very place, is the medicine for the same (the poison of snakes is being neutralized today through the medicine made by the poison of snakes, an interesting fact to observe). This will take time but not the material resources and the time used in obedience of The True Lord is indeed the best time. For our defense, we must always keep the strong side in front of the people who find pleasure in our opposition, keeping in mind that we are much stronger spiritually than the western world. In better words, we must clarify Islam, highlighting the points relating to Astronomy and Psychology and Anatomy/Physiology (the fields in which the west considers itself as the only master but totally disregards the interesting philosophical points which can be deducted by the same facts which are understood by the study of man in a physical sense). This way of spreading knowledge will cause the non-Muslims, even with the set of traditions they have, to have at least a great respect for Islam, whether they do or don't convert to Islam. We must also try our best in the situation we face, to achieve a good strength regarding martial aspect so that our enemy may not even think of making a war upon us. This attitude is utmost necessary as this only can cause us to live as true Muslims in the present world.
17- The descending moon in Pakistan's flag is not a matter of concern as it should be considered as the end of the world coming near, which seems to be true in the present situation. This position must therefore, not be criticized and must not be made a matter of concern.18- It is interesting to note that people born in the darkness of the night have more power to enlighten the world than those who are born in the daylight. Maybe because the light is felt much more in the darkness than in light itself. This fact seems to be historical reality.
19- In the Islamic Society, the TV. programs must be assigned separately for male persons and female persons by assigning different channels. For the women-folk, entertainment like musical program with women amateur performers, a stage drama, a comedy talk, songs, pantomime, amazing talents of women etc. may be aired and male performers may participate here yet there must be moral limit to their part and action. Both must have programs of the recitation, translation and tafseer of the Holy Quran. The men's programs may comprise programs on politics (court proceedings and talk with officials in a position to affect the politics of the country included) and educational programs that must be transmitted daily. The news and a commentary upon it must also be included in these programs without censure. Entertainment programs with only men in performance (and those also not professional) may also be incorporated in the daily transmission. The time allotted to TV programs must not be the whole day or night and it must operate in the limit of necessity upto necessity. Please note that any restrictions on information may only be put due to the Islamic teachings regarding morals and certainly not because of putting any censorship on speech or writing. We all must learn from each other but not let Islamic Morals suffer as Islamic Society would totally be a model for the same indeed.20- The appearance of the new Moon should not be made an issue as is wrongly done at this time. Wherever the new Moon is sighted, Eid and other festivals must be observed accordingly. This does not make any confusion or does not put any black mark on the integrity of Muslims. In fact, in Pakistan, if the festivals may be observed by province, I consider that it would be quite all right even by political reasons and indeed, it is in accordance with Islam. Even if calculations point out that the new Moon is in the range of vision after Maghrib after its day 29, it must actually be seen by a few reliable persons who would vouch about seeing it if and when needed. Its a pity that for political reasons, it is tried that the clear teachings of Islam may be omitted and what seems convenient to people of high standing, may be taken into practice and that also in the name of Islam.
21- There are 4 concepts which I take to be totally wrong which are being forwarded today to influence the world & turn it towards a total evil way of life. The first one is that attention must totally be towards the physical side of life disregarding the spiritual side. Wherever this wrong concept is being put into practice, people have forgotten the spiritual aspect of life and even with great physical achievements in the fields of Medicine, Astronomy & Psychology, often are badly in need for inner satisfaction. The second concept is that illicit sexual relationship is not questionable by law when the consent of a woman is involved. This concept of consent for adultery is a great injustice to womenfolk and indeed an insult to them. The third concept is that this worldly life asks for the survival of the fittest. This concept has led to disregard the rights and respect of the weak people while it has also led to competition in all fields of life that is not appreciable. The fourth concept is to take Human Beings to extremes in all they do. This concept again leads to injustice and a man must always keep his emotions in control and judge all situations he face with faith, wisdom and practical human efforts.MANAM (DREAMS) :- There is a great respect given to dreams in the Islamic Traditions. The scholars of Islam were correctly interpreting the dreams of people by the book of the great interpreter of dreams Janab Ibn-e-Sereen, long before Sigmund Freud wrote his book "The interpretation of dreams" and centuries have passed, still the book "The meaning of dreams" by Ibn-e-Sereen remains an authority on the subject for the Muslims. The Holy Quran points out that if the messages given in the dreams are read correctly, they can shed light on the future events. Also, observation of a person, month in which a person is born, Numbers relating to a person (indeed, the days of everybody are numbered), the year of person by the Chinese Calendar and also horoscope of a person give an immense assistance in the study of man & universe. In relation to Manam, let us view a set of a few questions, rather a guide to use the subject for the study, so as to make the best use of the mentioned subject. -1- See if a dream is felt much. -2- See if a dream holds many symbols as much symbolic dreams are surely related to the future (many symbols which are commonly seen in the dreams by all persons, have specific meanings, pointing to the Collective Consciousness or Unconsciousness of the human beings). -3- See if the dreamer associates some special meaning to the symbols or the words seen in the dream. -4- See & Judge the interpretation of a dream by the teachings of Ibn-e-Sereen, the great master in interpretation of dreams. -5- See if there is a talk in the dream as a message may be stated in very plain words in the talk seen in a dream. MUSHAHEDA (OBSERVATION) : -1- Study the person in study in a psychological fashion, seeing the priorities and the way of talking & walking and taking all things, of that particular person in study. -2- Study the pattern of events for the person in study. -3- Study how he deals what, as much of the character is revealed by this way. -4- See if the birth occurs on or near March 20 (inclination towards spiritual development); See if the birth occurs on or near January 1 (inclination towards material development); as this also sheds light on the person's character. -5- See the weather at birth and if it was daylight or the darkness of a night when the birth took place. This observation, besides being an aid to the study of man in itself, is also helpful as a point in the fifth method of study i.e. the Chinese Calendar. MAHEENAY (MONTHS) : -1- What is the phase of the Moon at birth -2- What is the current month operating at a given time for the person in study (Solar & Lunar). -3- What is the month at birth and at what portion of it, the birth occurs (Solar & Lunar). Likewise see what AADAD (NUMBERS) hold for a person in study (the meaning of numbers may be known by studying the Tarot Cards) and see what JANTARI (The Chinese Calendar) tells about the person in study. As for NUJOOM (ASTROLOGY) : SEE -1- What is the rising sign -2- What is/are rising planet/s -3- What are the houses having connection to the first house due to the ruler of the Ascendant & due to the planet/s present -4- What is the placement of the Sun, the Moon and the Ruler; signs & houses to be seen -5- What are the important aspects of these three in the birth and whether any aspect forms between any or both the lights with the Ruler in the birth chart -6- Whether a grand trine or a grand square or a grand arrow forms in the birth chart -7- What arrangement follows by putting the Sun, the Moon and the Ruler on the Ascendant, by taking 30 degrees for each house in the Birth Chart -8- What is the placement for the Fortuna, Part of Marriage and the Moon's South Node in the chart -9- What is the overall pattern made by the bodies in the chart in study -10- What is the Solar Return Chart & Lunar Return Chart for the current Solar & Lunar year respectively of the person in study and they must be considered independently though the birth chart is basic; Ascendant to be taken for the time of birth (it would be the same as the Birth Chart or very near to it for Solar Return though it would change for the Lunar Return except when both the Dates nearly co-incide). Also consider the directions, moving the Sun ahead one sign for each year & considering the Moon at the positon of the Sun where the Lunar Date of Birth falls in the Birth Chart for each year, Ascendant and other bodies remaining same.
There is a beginning ability in the Hijri month of Muharram. By this month, a new Hijri year begins and this month also marks the beginning of the liberation of Bani Israel as the great man & messenger Moses led them on the 10th of this month by water towards safety when Pharaoh & his men were following them and also the beginning of the thought of defending Islamic teachings when necessary arises, has taken place in this month by the great sacrifice of Janab Hussein. However, the beginning of many adverse things have also taken place in this month as the way of politics of Muslims started to become Mulookiat (kingdom) in this month and the martyrdom of Hazrat Umar on the first of this month marked the opening of the gate of FITNA in the Muslim world. In recent times, India tested Atom Bombs successfully in Muharram and though Pakistan has responded by testing its own Atom Bombs successfully, it is very troublesome for Muslims indeed. It seems that Muharram poses a Challenge for the Muslim world for which they must have an Islamic attitude to combat with and they must enhance the brighter side of the Hijri month for the sake of right attitudes.Ahadees (the sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad PBUH), point out that in the times of Fitna that person is better who performs JIHAD and after him that person is better who takes his cattle and settles on mountains to save his Deen. The point to note here that in the times of Fitna a righteous person can not lead a normal life for either he must respond to change the situation or else if he does not find the power to do so, he must retire from the scene to save his true faith from all evil effect. We are facing such times and it is necessary that we take one of these attitudes collectively so that the situation may change for the better or else may not remain harmful to us in any way as even to keep quiet on sins being committed is totally wrong by the Islamic viewpoint. Actually we must avoid all contacts with the non-muslims that challenge our Islamic ways, without posing any challenge to them, even if it means much sacrifice of the worldly benefits to us. This immediate response is totally necessary if we want to live as a Muslim nation with integrity. A Hadees indicates that there are two men with whom even jealousy is allowed. Those are a rich person who gives great charity in the name of Allah to the poor and the other is a learned man who uses and spreads his knowledge for the betterment of the people in the name of Allah. This shows that all the things given to men must actually be used in the way of Allah as the world is the place of examination and this spreading of all good things may they be tangible or intangible is an attitude which is expected from the Muslims. A Hadees points out that if a person gives me the guarantee about two pieces of flesh in the body; one is what is between his cheeks (i.e. tongue) and the other is what is between his legs (the private part of the Male and the private part of the Female), I will give him the guarantee of JANNAT. I feel that the important point to note is that a woman's respect depends on the tongue of a man that her acceptance or her rejection depends on the words a man uses and the shelter to her may be withdrawn only by a man's tongue. Likewise, the respect of a man depends upon the care a woman takes about her private part as no man other than her husband must have any access to that and so she must remain faithful to him for his respect indeed. The Hadees issues guarantee to those persons who take care for their tongues and their male or female organs. The Ahadees relating to the signs of QAYAMAT must be given special attention as this will help to face the situation we are in today. Please note that there are some learned scholars of Islam who have pointed out that Dajjal (Antichrist) is not a person in truth but it is the position of the world as we find today. With advancements in Science & Technology (specially in the fields of Medicine, Astronomy and Psychology) with no regards for moral values, it is clear that their view has something at its back. We must give due weight to this consideration and must care for what we take from today's developments as this is a basic asking of our traditions, moral values and the Islamic teachings.
I would point out the situation being faced at Wedding ceremonies that even many young ladies belonging to big cities do not care about the basics of the Islamic Morals at such times and leave the moral teachings of Islam at their back which shows the amazing hypocrisy which is making way in our living-style. Many of them go totally with fashions regardless of how Islam teaches about the dresses Muslim Respectable Ladies must wear. Mind it that if two things are noted and practiced by Muslim women, Muslims would certainly reach heights of great morals. (i) They must take a CHADAR to cover themselves specially their heads (or tie a scarf at head in addition) whenever they leave their houses on necessities and (ii) They must avoid make up. The main reason for leaving the Islamic Morals at wedding ceremonies and picnic occasions is that these are considered to be occasions that must be treated as an outlet for emotions usually kept with check and so the respect for Islam is kept aside though we are still a lots better than other peoples. However, it is amazing that many women also have become promoters of such indecency which is being faced at occasions where emotions run high. This very notion of caring about physical benefits have led the women to consider getting jobs and playing the part of men without caring about their actual responsibilities. The fields where women have entered in a huge number i.e. Education, Medicine and Video Field all badly need care about Morals though women only are not responsible for that indeed. I feel that it is necessary to develop some change in sexual attitude by Muslim males that might make the situation much better. For clarification of this statement, I would point out that there has always been more than one legitimate ways in history to have sexual relations with women. Marriage of course has always been one and it is the most respectable relation between a male and a female. However, Islam allowed sexual relation with concubines too at one time and that was another way to give outlet to the animal desires though we must never try to initiate this practice again or accept it in any way as by the Islamic Viewpoint, slavery is totally out of question and it was only tolerated for the time being. Moreover, there was a time in the Last Prophet's period, SallAllahu Alaihe Wa Sallam, when Islam even allowed NIKAH MAWAQQAT (marriage for a specific period) so there were more than one ways to give outlet to animal desires. NIKAH MAWAQQAT had its conditions and they were always kept in view strictly for the sake of purity of sexual relations. Announcement of marriage, Responsibility and Faithfulness to spouse are the keywords that were seen even in such marriages without fail. Now, only a regular Marriage remains the option for purity of sexual relations and no doubt it is a very respectable way for sexual relationship between a man and a woman. However, I am totally sure that we must refine the attitude in matters relating to sex in such a manner that Islamic Values are not challenged. A man being normal, does need more than one woman sexually while a woman being normal does feel at security adhering totally to one man only at one time (and she can adhere normally to one man for her whole life when he does provide her safety and security in all ways totally well) so we must make some necessary adjustment to see that natural tendencies are not suppressed but find their proper outlet though with responsibility taken by both male & female persons as without announcement, responsibility and trust on each other, any adjustment relating to sexual relation between them would not be taken lawful at the Islamic Society. I advise that when the Islamic Society is fully formed, any woman here that commits any severe crime according to the Islamic Viewpoint or is related to helping in such a crime, must be registered with the Government besides receiving her punishment and it would be allowed for Muslim men to take lawful wives from these registered women for a specific time not less than three months, by their consent (one at a time only and this would be counted in the four women he can take in marriage), by whoever so desires by paying a high amount of MEHER for them. They can keep them as their rightful wives for the whole life if they wish even after this period by consent of these women. Please note that though the decent women of the Islamic Society; that is women other than these women that have committed severe crimes and have got registered with the Government for marriages of convenience of three months minimum; when these decent women take up some decent jobs, they must be at or more than the age of 30 yet this condition would be relaxed for these specific women that have committed severe crimes and they can take up jobs if avaliable and if they will, even before that age. No man would be allowed to dissolve his regular marriage within a year though this marriage of convenience for three months minimum with the specific women that are registered as written, would automatically dissolve as three months of this relationship end unless both of the couple want it to continue. They can change it to a regular marriage if they both so desire though the man must pay a high amount again to take her into the regular marriage. The Meher (the amount that a man gives to a woman to take her into his marriage) too must be charged very high in these marriages of convenience so that these girls feel secure in financial matters. Please note that this marriage would be lawful and registered with the Government as a marriage of convenience and the offspring by the relationship would be legitimate in all ways. These specific registered girls would be allowed to use injection if they want as a preventive measure to avoid pregnancy (though other measures would be discouraged for these women too and all measures of prevention to avoid pregnancy, would be disallowed in general in the Islamic Society). If their status is raised to a regular wife, they would also have to adhere to the rules for the decent women in marriage. The female person would have to observe her IDDAT uptil the time she ends her first menses period got after the dissolution of the marriage of convenience or if she is pregnant by the relationship, uptil the time she gives birth to the child. She can marry again for three months minimum or more than that period as decided by both male and female perons that agree for the marriage of convenience, after seeing to her IDDAT. It is clear with this detail that there would be much difference between regular marriage of a Muslim man that he makes with any decent girl at the Islamic Society and this one of convenience that he makes with a girl who is designated by the Government here as related to committing severe crimes or helping in severe crimes (though such female persons must be given some warning first by the Government at the Islamic Society before finally designating them as committing or providing assistance in severe crimes). A person must not divorce his wife taken by regular marriage but if for some genuine reason, he does want to divorce his wife that is taken by a regular marriage (even after trying to avoid this as much as possible), he would only be allowed to do so after a year has elapsed in the relationship and the reason must be very strong and totally just. Marriage, in truth, is a matter of Trust, Responsibility, Faithfulness, Announcement and Love indeed and when a man marries in a regular manner, he must commit to the woman for this relation for the whole life unless and until he has no option left. Even in a marriage of convenience, a man must care about Announcement, Responsibility and Trust that are much required in marriage by the Islamic Viewpoint. So even such marriages are an ART between both the male and the female person as these are the initials of Announcement, Responsibility and Trust. Please note that when higher traits like Trust & Faithfulness are omitted in Marriage just for the sake of material or physical gains, then such selfishness works to destroy the bondage of True Love between the male and the female and as such, they lose the quality that really could have provided them true satisfaction in this life and in the true life after this one. If such selfishness takes place on a collective basis, the whole society lacks true love between the male and the female and this does cause psychological problems of a high nature. Islamic Teachings tell us to be selfish in matters of Akhirat as we have to answer alone for our Faith, Knowledge and Deeds yet these teachings ask us clearly to be totally charitable in this world giving away worldly things to the needy persons for sake of pleasing Allah, as much as possible without any touch of selfishness in any way. We must keep this world at a position of “necessity” that we live here with minimum of our requirement while we must keep the success of Akhirat at a position of “aim of life” as for that we have been given this worldly life. As for the field of the films and movies, their set up and their application is totally against Islam at present therefore there is no need to point out its wrongs. However, the Government-run or Private video field of current times can survive if Islamic Morals are not challenged and the sanctity of women as Islam takes it, is not challenged. In the Islamic Society, it would be much better if only a few TV channels operate and it would be even better if each of them is assigned a specific field to concentrate on; for example the channel number one might deal with Government matters and news & views on the political situation of the country, channel two might provide decent dramas and fictious plays but in limited quantity, channel three might be assigned to provide religious guidance, channel four for songs and talks about some romantic matters in a limited sphere while channel five might be related to providing knowledge about all matters of life. There might be a channel six and a channel seven though it is better not to go beyond that and try to see that Islamic Morals are not challenged by their operations but remain strong by the service these all channels provide that operate in the Islamic Society. Please note again that the women workers who take some decent economic activity upon them in the Islamic Society must be at 30 years of age or more though the Government-run or private video field might take a few women from these few specific registered women proven indecent in the Islamic Society by the crimes they have committed, who do not fulfil this criteria. However, decent dramas, that might be shown at the TV (as on channel two in the example I gave) though few in number in the Islamic Society, might have other than these registered girls as actresses in them though few in number and who fulfil the criteria of being at the age of 30 years or more. Men have the permission to marry in a regular way upto four women at one time but they must take only one woman from these specific registered women at one time if they will. They can take wives from other women of the country that are totally decent, leaving these specific registered women and its a point to note that these registered women that have been designated as involved in some severe criminal activity must only be present in a very small quantity in the Islamic Society. For this, efforts must be made to clear the society from such criminal activity with a clear adherence to justice without any personal motives. Those men who marry more than one woman by regular marriages, must fulfil the demands of justice as much as possible for them so then they are not liable to get any blame for any wrong committed by mistake nor must they be blamed for any thing relating to matters not in their control like having more love for any one of their wives. If men do try their best to remain loyal to Islamic Teachings and women do so accordingly, there is no doubt that the Islamic Society would be a great manifestation of a very high morality that would guide all those men and women well who want to live a life of true love, virtue and purity. As for Education, mind it that co-education of adult males & females is totally against Islam. However, in an Islamic Society it might be tolerated in the medical education due to necessity upto necessity (after the second year of college keeping in view the Pakistani educational set-up) and in the University education due to necessity upto necessity (that also after the second year as imparted in Pakistani educational set-up because the first and second years of college should remain separate for Boys and Girls without fail and also please note that this University education would not be preferred for girls and only would be provided to girls that excel in studies and want to study further), where the Islamic Society might show some leniency due to necessity upto necessity though a specific male person must guide a specific female person in the medical education being her care-taker too at the specific time & place only though at the University, there would be no such condition. A girl if she does want to study high but does not go to Medical education, would only be allowed to study subjects of her interest at the University specifically as time and place must be limited at such education. At Medical, it would be obligatory for a female student to remain totally related to her specific male colleague in her studies at the place and while attending her classes, and this education would be based purely on the concept that Male Persons would guide Female Persons better in this medical study with a care for their security and no charges would be asked or given for this co-operation as they would be study partners. However, as she comes to house job practice, she would be released from this limitation of being the study partner of her male guide. Please note that it is not allowed for men to teach women in this regular fashion as is being done at this time & place without care for Islam and that also in the good name of necessity and at the Islamic Society, the guidance from a Male Person to his specific female colleague at the Medical College would be an exception that would only take place when and where total Islamic Society has come into existence clearly. Female education is certainly much necessary yet they must be educated with normal education and it is better for them to avoid higher education only getting educated upto Second Year of College as in the Pakistani set-up (though even more education is not prohibited as I have specified yet it is not much appreciable) as their actual responsibility is to aid their men-folk in leading an Islamic life caring totally about the only true aim of life for both men and women i.e. to obey Allah everywhere, everytime. The education imparted today for both male & female persons which is mostly for worldly benefits, is much harmful to the womenfolk as this makes for a cover to the true responsibilities which a girl must see to and care about. Its a pity that nobody of influential status is worried about the situation faced by the society in regards to Morals and I would be frank enough to state that it seems to me that all people of all status have either accepted the situation or else have put on a resigned attitude, letting the events shape themselves even if they are unfavorable to the Islamic Cause. The fact is that the body dies but the Spirit lives on so we must take care for that. With the reason of TABLEEGH, it is acceptable by Islamic Morals for a learned person in Islam to teach individually in an un-Islamic Society, a number of adult female students at one time the matters which may help them face the world with an Islamic touch but of course there are conditions to see for this. My other writings tell the conditions clearly and this writing too points out most of them well. However, in the Islamic Society, the teaching of subjects by male teachers to female students must be avoided as much as possible. Now women are mixing with men in the fields of Education (a matter which is related to Jannat and perhaps due to the high level of Knowledge that we find today, Allah has not put his wrath upon us even when this mixing is against Islam and even when there are so many evil things present in the society by the Islamic Viewpoint yet please note that we must better things as fast as possible for this soft dealing of Allah towards us might not go on for long), Current Video Films (a matter which is related to Jahannum except where we might find ourselves able to make dramatic plays where they may be transmitted commonly giving regards to Islamic Morals) & Medicine (a matter which is related to Duniya i.e. this world). By the study of Islamic Teachings about female education, it is clear that the way the teaching is imparted today with male teachers working in coalition with female teachers in schools in someone else's authority, is not the right thing in my view according to Islam. However, One Male Teacher (Understanding, Aged, Muslim) with his own authority, if he teaches female students at a school in alliance with a few female teachers (and no male teacher except for two or three male persons in the staff limited to office work or keeping guard at the gates) keeping the conditions for such teaching in view, then this matter in my opinion is acceptable in an Islamic Society though at Intermediate Level, education must be separate for Boys and Girls as already written. In Pakistani set-up of education, there must be no co-education at the intermediate level and after that co-education might be tolerated at the Medical Study and at the Universtiy level (which would be allowed to girls due to necessity upto necessity though not preferable at an Islamic Society). The subjects taught to them at the University must be useful for them at an Islamic Society like Languages, Accounting, Economics, Home Economics, History & Geography, Sociology, Psychology and of course Islamic Teachings where they could get a good guidance in all fields so as to make situation better for them and their men-folk where and when necessary, keeping Islamic Teachings in view. Girls would not be allowed to take up subjects of Science except for Medical, after the second year of college as it is useless for them practically and the practical need for persons at Science can easily be furnished by the male persons well. In the field of education, there is a troublesome matter that is not even considered a problem. This matter is the severe punishment given at times to the students by the teachers at schools. This is totally against the Human Rights and as such, totally against Islam. Discipline does not mean to take any harsh attitude towards the young generation on petty matters or even bigger than those. Although, the law at Pakistan does provide to secure the right of students yet as no one really does care what law asks of us in Pakistan where the well-recognized law of the land is only "Might is Right", I would ask attention towards this serious matter on moral grounds by pointing out the fact that The Holy Quran quotes the words of one of the Messengers of Allah, Hazrat HOOD Alaihes-Salam (in Sura Shora, Para 19, Ayaat -127, 128, 129, 130, 131):
The point is this that womenfolk and even men for that matter, must totally avoid the Govt. Hospitals all over the world never becoming in-patients at any circumstance and try to ask cure at Private Clinics or Private Hospitals only (and even there women asking for cure must not become in-patients except where they are more than sixty years of age). Here, they must seek treatment from women-folk only and their attendants too must only be women. However, even with the conditions mentioned, these clinics should only be consulted where the suffering of the female patient is high & no option seems available. May Allah give us a blessed power to impress all the people of the world, with high Morals & honest Character. -Amen-
By the Islamic view, there is no way that a male surgeon may operate on women patients for any surgery when women surgeons are available, even when only a few in number and even when not at the caliber of male surgeons. Moreover, male surgeons when they perform surgery on women patients in IZTIRAR, i.e. the situation of utmost necessity when a lady surgeon is not available and there is no hope of finding one, keeping their concentration totally to the operating area with other areas totally covered, even then there is no way for them to operate on Satar of a woman (though strictly by the Islamic viewpoint, whole body of a woman is Satar but in total IZTIRAR here it is not wrong for surgical reasons in my view that Satar of a woman is taken the same as a man's i.e. from the belly to the knees and there are sound reasons by Islamic viewpoint for this stance as the Satar of the kept women i.e. concubines at old times was considered the same so in surgical necessities where there is truly an IZTIRAR, there would be only this much ease and not any more, so this part that remains SATAR even in total IZTIRAR must remain hidden from men as this is a very basic asking of the sanctity of women as Islam takes it while sugery even at other area might only be done with concentration to that part specifically, other areas remaining hidden from view) therefore catheterization if necessary at Satar or tests at Satar, regarding any major surgery at some other area, must anyhow be done only by women though medical and x-ray reports in IZTIRAR can be studied by the male surgeons. This moral value must be seen that males do not operate for gynecological or obstetrical surgeries even in the situation of IZTIRAR when a lady surgeon is not available; even if it is understood that the woman will not survive without such operation; even for whatever reason you may think of with the exception that the male surgeon himself happens to be the husband of the lady patient needing surgery and operates on her as the only male surgeon in the room. Mind it that consent for anything against Islam is of no value for argument because the body of everybody is the property of Allah and it is necessary to keep His Commands in regards to body in view. The Holy Quran commands for both men & women to protect Satar and for this Sura AARAF-Ayat 27,Sura NOOR-Ayat 31, Sura AHZAB-Ayat 59 must be studied. If male persons take up such kind of surgeries disregarding Islamic Moral Values then I must say that a woman must never get hospitalized as this kind of avoidance seems to me much near to Islam in such situation. If the field of Medicine and Surgery is to remain a "sacred" institution, it must not take human beings as animals as we all have spirits which is our Truth and not our bodies. It is a point to note that whenever & wherever woman's sanctity is injured, many problems creep in. Much trouble relating to morals is entering in those professional fields (EDUCATION, MEDICINE, LAW) where woman have turned their attention to but have not been able to observe the Islamic teachings, with no one to put a check then & there. Further, it must be kept in mind that TAQADDUS (sanctity, specially the sanctity of women) can never be violated at any time, at any place as Islam commands and this can clearly be understood by the fact that a man dying from hunger can eat a swine if available to save his life (though even at that time too its a sin but Allah has said in the Holy Book Quran that He will forgive that) but to eat a human body even in such kind of IZTIRAR (situation of utmost necessity) is not allowed and a man must die from hunger, for death has to come someday & somewhere, but he must not eat from the human body due to its sanctity even if he is sure that he will save himself till he is rescued. Believe me we all have to live beyond life and so the cure of the body must not be asked at the expense of the spiritual health which is many times more important.As for fertility, there is indeed no evidence to consider it right in any way. If a male doctor is consulted, the foregoing argument is totally valid. If a lady doctor is consulted then also the argument holds good as she can not go through the check-up of the lady patients husband. Moreover, infertility is a normal occurrence in the lives of human beings and not an ailment that needs correction. We all must remember that Satan misled in such a fashion for the first attack on man & woman that their respective male & female hidden parts came in view of each other. Satan knows well that this will pave way for all kinds of deviation and all types of aberration in the people's attitudes and therefore, we must keep Adam's mercy-asking intact and must not fall for Satan's trap of evil in the name of good.
Relating to Family Planning, it is a matter to note that the 2 great sins i.e. unjust murder and adultery (great cruelty & great shamelessness) are related to death of a person in an unholy manner and birth of a person in an unholy manner respectively. This denotes the Islamic concept that human beings are given great respect and this must always be kept in mind whenever & wherever there is something is to be judged in the field of Medicine. As women's main exam is in child-birth and nursing of children, family planning for women normally is totally prohibited. However, where necessary for saving her life, that specific woman might adopt family planning for that specific time. In my view, induced abortion by this very argument is totally un-Islamic and that goes for every variety of such abortion. However, family planning ways regarding males are all right when the married men take to those by their own free will keeping Islamic teachings in view. Please mind it that these 2 great sins are always at every place and at every time great sins and even if the effect is not realized as mentioned they would still remain great sins all the same as this is how the Holy Quran has designated them. See Sura Bani-Israel, Ayaat 31 32 33. Now, it would be useless to ignore the situation by a light statement that this male & female business in this regard must be kept aside, rather everybody must see to the moral values of Islam as much as and as soon as possible in this regard. I would also try my best to convey the message to people having effect on the making of the ideas and the traditions of the current society. With total regards from the deepest nook of my open heart, I expect from your good selves a positive action and acknowledgment by practical acceptance. Any comment, criticism or advice, is welcome.
THE FIRST COMMANDIt is necessary to take some immediate steps to implement the 7 points of the Islamic Manifesto, which are also based on the same requirement of spreading the Islamic principles in theory and practice and putting an end to all injustice and every kind of shamelessness. Let's order to teach Islam and for this step, the teachings of the Holy Quran and Ahadith and Books of great Ulema must be made common. After that, let's order to give a great respect to human beings and for this step, an end will be put to beatings through 3 steps 1- An end will be put to unnecessary post-mortem and certainly male persons must not perform postmortem on the female cadavers, whether it is for study purpose or for criminal law purpose. 2- An end will be put to beatings to the supposed culprits specially when they are poor who are caught on different charges, just to make them confess even if they are really responsible. 3- An end will be put to beatings given to children just for the sake of study and learning. This all will be done as beatings on human body is illiteracy and illiteracy is cruelty, except where Islam orders (mostly because of shamelessness as in punishment of adultery, the culprits must be given 100 lashes). Then, let's order to give a great respect to Hejab and for this step an end will be put to 3 things 1- An end will be put to the co-education at the level of high classes. 2- An end will be put to the nursing of men by womenfolk and also to the nursing of women by male persons in the case of delivery (childbirth) and in the matters of gynecology. 3- An end will be put to photos/pictures of the living creatures as much as possible for the time being except where their implication is necessary for official needs (TV programs and the graphics of Computers are not included in this as these would operate in the Islamic Society). This must be noted well that this is to be done in minimum time-limit and the implementation of these steps is actually for the implementation of the 7 points of the Islamic society. This in actual is the first command, immediately to be taken into account to pave way for the Islamic society. May Allah bless us all and allow us to spread His Message. Amen.
