THE GOD: The problem is not how to make man come to belief by giving lengthy and intricate "theological" proofs of God's existence, but how to shake him into belief by drawing his attention to certain obvious facts and turning these facts into "reminders" of God. Hence the Qur'ān time and again calls itself (and also the Prophet) "a reminder" or "The Reminder".
The main points in this ceaseless, tremendous thrust for "reminding" man are (1) that everything except God is contingent upon God, including the entirety of nature (which has a "metaphysical" and a "moral" aspect); (2) that God, with all His might and glory, is essentially the all-merciful God; and (3) that both these aspects necessarily entail a proper relationship between God and Man--a relationship of the served and the servant--and consequently also a proper relationship between man and man. By a natural necessity, as it were, these normative relationships entail the law of judgment upon man both as individual and in his collective or social existence. Once we have grasped these three points, we will have understood the absolute centrality of God in the entire, system of existence, to a very large extent because the aim of the Qur'ān is man and his behavior, not God.

He is the God, other than Whom, there is none; He is the knower of the unseen and the seen, the Merciful, the Compassionate. He is the God other than Whom there is none, the Sovereign, the Holy, the One with peace and integrity, the Keeper of the Faith, the Protector, the Mighty, the One Whose Will is Power, the Most Supreme! Glory be to Him beyond what they [the pagans] associate with Him. He is the God, the Creator, the Maker, the Fashioner, to Whom belong beautiful names; whatever is in the heavens and the earth sings His glories, He is the Mighty One, the Wise One (Quran:Ħashr:22-24).

جمعہ مبارک۔۔۔ سورہ کہف ترجمہ سے پڑھیں : مومنو! جب جمعے کے دن نماز کے لیے اذان دی جائے گی تو اللہ کے ذکر کی طرف لپکو)آیت میں سعی سے مراد تیزی سے چلنا نہیں ہے بلکہ جمعہ کے لیے جلد نکلنے کا اہتمام کرنا ہے، یاد رہے کہ نماز کے لیے بھاگتے ہوئے جانے سے روکا گیا۔ [الجمعة: 9]

حسن فرماتے ہیں: ’’اللہ کی قسم سعی سے مراد بھاگتے ہوئے جانا نہیں ہے، بلکہ نماز کے لیے وقار وسکینت اور دل کی نیت اور خشوع وخضوع کے ساتھ جانے کا حکم دیا گیا‘‘ [تفسير ابن كثير 4/385/386].

ابن قیمؒ فرماتے ہیں: (جمعہ کا دن عبادت کا دن ہے، اِس کا دنوں میں ایسا مقام ہے جیسا کہ مہینوں میں ماہِ رمضان کا، اور اس دن مقبولیت کی گھڑی کا وہی درجہ ہے جیسا کہ رمضان میں شبِ قدر کا)۔ [زاد المعاد 1/398]

جمعہ کے دن کے فضائل:
1-دنوں میں بہترین دن: حضرت ابوہریرہؓ سے مروی ہے کہ نبی کریم ﷺ نے فرمایا: مزید 》》

Throughout the month, Israel continued to advance its plans to construct settlements in East Jerusalem. I must once again emphasise that settlement activity in occupied territory is illegal under international law and undermines the chances for the establishment of a viable, contiguous, sovereign Palestinian state as part of a two-state solution, he warned.

This game of thrones may prolong the political crisis in the country if the political forces don’t clean up their act.

Whatever the Supreme Court ruling may be, there is no likelihood of civil-military relations getting back on track. In fact, a major concern is that the military could regain its position as an arbiter of power as the deepening political crisis creates a power vacuum. However, there seems to be no possibility of direct military intervention or derailment of the political process. The balance of power may tilt more towards the military, but not that drastically.

Yet this game of thrones being played out on the Pakistani political stage could take a more spectacular twist. It is not just about winning or losing a legal battle over the Panamagate scandal for the House of Sharif; it goes much beyond with so many other characters in the power play. Moreover, one must not rule out the possibility of the three-member bench delivering the ultimate humiliation to one of the most powerful elected leaders in Pakistan’s history, thus completely changing the rules of the game.

The Straight Path: سیدھا راستہ
وَعَلَى اللَّهِ قَصْدُ السَّبِيلِ وَمِنْهَا جَائِرٌ ۚ وَلَوْ شَاءَ لَهَدَاكُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ
(قرآن 16:9)
"‏اور سیدھا راستہ تو اللہ تک جا پہنچتا ہے اور بعض راستے ٹیڑھے ہیں (وہ اس تک نہیں پہنچتے) اور اگر وہ چاہتا تو تم سب کو سیدھا راستے پر چلا دیتا ۔ "(قرآن 16:9)

The straight way leads to God and there are ways which deviate from the right course. If He so wished, He would guide you all. (Quran 16:9)
پس سچا راستہ ایک ہی ہے جو کتاب اللہ اور سنت رسول اللہ صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم سے ثابت ہے باقی اور راہیں غلط راہیں ہیں ، حق سے الگ تھلگ ہیں ، لوگوں کی اپنی ایجاد ہیں جیسے یہودیت نصرانیت مجوسیت وغیرہ ۔ پھر فرماتا ہے کہ ہدایت رب کے قبضے کی چیز ہے اگر چاہے تو روئے زمین کے لوگوں کو نیک راہ پر لگا دے زمین کے تمام باشندے مومن بن جائیں سب لوگ ایک ہی دین کے عامل ہو جائیں لیکن یہ اختلاف باقی ہی رہے گا مگر جس پر اللہ رحم فرمائے ۔ اسی کے لئے انہیں پیدا کیا ہے تیرے رب کی بات پوری ہو کر ہی رہے گی کہ جنت دوزخ انسان سے بھر جائے ۔(تفسیر ابن كثیر)

It is largely true that Muslim societies need to deal head on with the image of Islam their political, social and religious leaders have helped to project. Their willing or unwilling tolerance for extremist misinterpretations of specific Islamic injunctions has provided space for individual or group acts of terrorism in response to Western excesses. Nevertheless, these terrorist acts, even when in response to acts of state terrorism, flagrantly violate the tenets and purpose of the Quranic message that is embodied in the injunction that “there is no hate or compulsion in faith because what is righteous (ar-rushd) has been made clear from what is sinful (al-ghayy)”.
