Spiritual Meditations

Knowing the teachings of Allah and knowing how and where to apply is hikmah (Knowledge). Prophet (PBUH) said “I leave you with two things, the book of Allah and my way (Sunnah) hold on to these two things and you’ll never go astray” ….

 

Perhaps the most heart-rending recent instance of the repercussions of this disease comes from the hospital in Kabul, where Zainab gave birth to a boy after seven years of fertility failures. The parents named the new born Omid, or Hope. Just four hours after giving birth, Zainab heard gunshots while she was in the washroom. By the time she rushed back, Hope lay dead in his crib….

 

Plenty of scientific theories have already proven its shaky foundations and we all know that the broad nature of predictions offered means that some bit of them will probably align with this or that person...

 
The Right to Health Will Be A Radical Step in Post-Lockdown India
Smitha Sasidhran Nair, Rani Rohini Raman and Jisha

At this point the right to health in itself will be a radical step towards consistent and persistent change. The lockdown will end and we will find a way around COVID-19, but this crisis has shown that it is not virus that is the enemy but the idea ‘that some are more equal than others’....

 
Epidemics: A Challenge for Science
Epidemics: A Challenge for Science
Dr. M.I.H. Farooqi, New Age Islam

Belief in Science and Scientific Temper is the need of hour. Science defeated and controlled almost all the deadly Viruses and Bacteria in the past and it will surely defeat and control the present horrendous Corona virus soon…

I’m reminded of the wise words of Ali ibn Abu Talib, the son-in-law of Muhammad and a seminal figure in Islam, who said, “The nourishment of the body is food, while the nourishment of the soul is feeding others.” ….

 

However, it is not only Muslims who are stressed because of rampant Islamophobia during the lockdown. “I get emails and calls from non-Muslims as well, who complain that rising Islamophobia and increasing attacks on Muslims is giving them anxiety. These people, mostly members of the youth, are actually annoyed with their families for their capacity of hatred towards Muslims. They fight and have heated arguments with their parents and relatives who support discrimination against the Muslim community,” said Mehdi….

How do we reverse these conditions? That is the most important priority for the immediate future of human life. We are all busy talking about and finding respite from COVID-19. But what are we doing about all those viruses? ...

The elaboration and the mystical allegories above remind us that the true house of God is the heart of the human being. The Prophet Muhammad said, the throne of God is the heart of the faithful devotee. In these times of challenge, we’d better go back to the heart; as Jalaluddin Rumi put it, “only from the heart can we touch the sky.” ...

It is a spiritual retreat for believers in which an excessive “religious heat” is greatly exhibited by true Muslims who are sincerely in need of Allah’s blessings, forgiveness and mercy. Ramadhan, ipso facto, teaches common sense, good manners, civilised standards, ideals and religious morality….

The world would have been denied the richness and scholarship of some of Franz Kafka’s literary work — especially The Metamorphosis — had his friend and executor, Max Brod, not decided to ignore Kafka’s instruction in his will to destroy the unpublished manuscripts he left behind....

This simple interreligious observation therefore allows us to affirm that according to the meaning that Islam gives to this verse it is false to declare that fasting “is prescribed/kutiba as it was prescribed/kutiba to those who came before you“, Jews and Christians differing on this point....

 

As with anything related to parenting—or life, I suppose—what you expect is often not what happens. With the start of Ramadan behind us, I am surprised to report that the children have taken to the month with energy and vigour despite the absence of the usual celebratory events….

 

This lockdown has been an eye-opener for me, and I have never been so shaken. I have never seen so many Indians being so cruel to their fellow beings — especially to women — and to animals. Poisoning and beating animals have become the norm and harassment of single women has become a blood sport….

 

He was sure of the fact that his religion of conversion need be from the Indian soil. Finally, he chose Buddhism and came out with his own version of the Buddhist Dhamma, altering segments of the religion that he believed did not go in tune with the overall spirit of Buddhism....

 

One of the most famous scientific conversations consists of a two-line exchange between Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr. Averse to the randomness of quantum mechanics, Einstein brushed it aside with a dismissive, “God doesn’t play dice with the universe.” To which his friend and colleague, Bohr, replied, “Please stop telling God what to do.” ….

Using its fora such as the World Economic Forum – see Strategic Intelligence – and its agents (particularly the World Health Organization, the pharmaceutical industry, governments, the medical industry and corporate media) the global elite continues to tighten its grip on the human population, bombarding us with COVID-19 propaganda to heighten people’s fear while introducing new and/or extending existing restrictions to conceal the many measures being taken to execute their ongoing coup against humanity…

They suggest alternatives to pray at home and make Dua (supplication) to Almighty Allah in prayers at home to seek protection for the whole nation and for the people who are victimised due to corona diseases globally….

 

A recent tweet from the Congress leader and former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, Kamal Nath, runs thus: “It is really praiseworthy that Muslim community persons along with the old woman’s two sons carried the body on their shoulders for her last rites. This has set an example in society.” ..

And if we haven’t found a semblance of heaven here, we can’t get it there. It isn’t a deal with insurance company that you pay premiums for life here and get returns there. Every moment is, to transpose Renan’s metaphor for nation, a plebiscite for heaven or hell....

Often people ask whether a diabetic patient can observe fasting. In fact, most of them can observe fasting safely during Ramadhan, No wonder about 80 percent of 120 million Muslims with diabetes all over the world undertake fasting during Ramadhan….

 

We should try our utmost to spend on poor and marginalised; and as we get double reward for the good acts during this month, so we are doubly guilty if we ignore them. This month teaches us, among others, that “if we don’t hold the hand of weak and oppressed, we are abject criminals”….

 

With the phenomenal expansion of TV, a child’s exposure to the outside world is enormous. Hate and violence pre-dominate TV content. According to an American study, by the time a child is 18, (s)he has been exposed to 2,00,000 acts of violence, including 25,000 killings….

Various themes are being touted — “Revival to survival”, “Covid-19: A learning opportunity for higher education”, “Coping with uncertainty” and many more. The online world has seldom been so vibrant….

 

At the same time, it is interesting to observe the vast number of fearfully submissive people who are willing to accept, or even ask for, greater constraints on our rights, freedom and economic security, ostensibly to ‘protect’ them from a virus. Sadly, too, the fear of these people plays a critical collaborative role in both advancing the elite coup and condemning millions of others to death…
