“Islamic Terrorism”: There is nothing called the 'moderate Taliban'

By M J Akbar


12 Apr 2009


If necessity is the mother of invention then politics is often the father. Barack Obama has invented a phrase that did not exist on January 20,

the day he became president. Anxious to win a war through the treasury rather than the Pentagon, he has discovered something called the "moderate Taliban" in Afghanistan. Joe Biden, his vice president, has found the mathematical coordinates of this oxymoron: only 5% of the Taliban are "extremists".


Welcome to Obama's first big mistake.


The war in Afghanistan and Pakistan is not simply against some bearded men and beardless boys who have been turned into suicide missionaries. The critical conflict is against the ideology of a chauvinistic theocracy that seeks to remould the Muslim world into a regressive region from which it can assault every aspect of modernity, whether that be in political space or the social sphere.


Washington has a single dimension definition of "moderate": anyone who stops an active, immediate war against the US is a "moderate". Let me introduce him to a couple of "moderate Taliban". They are now world famous, having been on every national and international news channel these past few days, stars of a video clip from Swat. Two of them had pinned down a 17-year-old girl called Chand Bibi, while a third, his face shrouded, lashed her with a whip 37 times on suspicion of being seen with a man who was not her father or brother.


Obama should record the screams of Chand Bibi and play them to his daughters as the "moderate" music to which he wants to dance in his Afghan war.


These Taliban are "moderate" by the norms of the Obama Doctrine: they have come to a deal with America through Islamabad. Pakistani troops are not engaged in their medieval haven, nor are American Drones bombing their homes. All that remains, one presumes, is that they are placed on the Pentagon payroll as insurance of their ceasefire.


Perhaps, in their desperate search for moderation, Obama and Islamabad will promote the denial being manipulated into public discourse. The unbearable Swat-lashing video is now described as fake. It would be nice to know the names of the actors who played such a convincing part in the filming of this 'fake'. Chand Bibi has "denied" any such incident. Sure: but was any doctor sent to check the scars?


Such compromise with 'moderation' has also taken place next door, in Afghanistan, under the watchful eye of American ally Hamid Karzai. He has just signed a family law bill which compels Afghan women to take permission from their husbands before going to a doctor, seeking education, or getting a job. The husband has become complete master of the bedroom. Custody of children can only go to fathers or grandfathers; women have no rights. A member of Afghanistan's upper house, Senator Humaira Namati, has called this law "worse than during the Taliban (government). Anyone who spoke out was accused of being against Islam". It makes no difference to the Taliban, of course, that the Quran expressly forbids Muslim men from forcing decisions on their wives "against their will". Karzai's justification is the usual one: politics. He wanted the support of theocrats in the election scheduled for August this year. Under pressure, there is talk of a review but no one is sure what that means.


If it's democracy, it must be "moderate", right?


One can understand a post-Iraq America's reluctance towards wars that seem straight out of Kipling. But we in the region have to live with the political consequences of superpower intervention, and the casual legitimacy that Obama is offering to a destructive ideology will create blowback that spreads far beyond the geography of "Afpak".


Benazir Bhutto and the ISI did not create the Taliban in the winter of 1994 for war against America. Its purpose was to defeat fractious Afghan warlords, and establish a totalitarian regime that would equate Afghanistan's strategic interests to Pakistan's. The ISI conceived an "Afpak" long before the idea reached the outer rim of Washington's thinking. Pakistan worked assiduously to widen the Taliban's legitimacy and would have drawn America into the fold through the oil-pipeline siren song if Osama bin Laden had not blown every plan apart. In some essentials, things have not changed. Pakistan's interests still lie in a pro-Islamabad Taliban regime in Kabul. The "moderation" theory is a ploy to provide war-weary America with an exit point. India's anxieties will be offered a smile in public and a shrug in private.


History is uncomfortable with neat closures. Neither the Taliban nor Pakistan are what they were in 1994: the former

is much stronger, the latter substantially weaker. The fall of Kabul to the Taliban this time could be a curtain raiser to the siege of Islamabad.


There is nothing called a moderate lash, or backlash, President Obama.

    The Prophet Of Islam – And Contemplation Of Works Of Allah

    By Allama Muhammad Yousuf Gabriel


     The prophet of Islam, peace be upon him, was not only a teacher but also was a partial model for the Muslims in every respect. Who more than him could have contemplated the works of Allah in a manner more proper. There is no sign that he ever hinted at the material exploitation of the works of Allah in connection with their contemplation verbally, or ever did anything practically in this respect. Next to him were his disciples as the models.. Nor do we find anything in any of them that could allude to the association between the contemplation and the material utility of the works of Allah.. Attempts could be made at explaining away the attitude of the Holy Prophet peace be upon him and his disciples in this matter, but who will explain away and how, the consequences of this association between the contemplation of the works of Allah and their material exploitation. Afflictions unheard of miseries untold, discontentment and heart-burning universal and

     acute, diseases painful and novel, and above all else, the blazing, all-consuming atomic hell which through not much minded at present, yet must clearly be recognised when the [people will be broiled therein, when its flames will begin to roast the people and burn them alive. Is it not better than to foresee the approaching the trouble and think how to avoid it. Nor indeed will be the hell of the radiations of the atomic-energy-for-peace in any way the less horrible.

                    The Quran binge the last scripture, and the lest declared will of Allah, the works of Allah in the universe were given out as miracles in lieu of the miracles that were demanded by the people from the pretenders of prophethod as a sign of the truth of their claim in ancient times. Besides these works of Allah in the universe Quran itself has been declared as a standing miracle and an object for contemplation presented as a substitute for the miracles as we worked by he prophets of pre-Islamic ages. Hence all the enhanced significance of the subject of contemplation, and a miracle this Quran indeed Is. If it succeeded in guiding this mankind away from the atomic hell, that certainly would be a miracle without a parallel in human history.

                    Islam is that religion which was revealed to the Holy Prophet of Islam, peace be upon him, in a form perfected and complete in every way. The peculiar, particular and characteristic innovations of this modern Baconian are in knowledge, science and other views, are devilish innovations and satanic seductions, satanic indeed and antichrist, and not at all in line with Islamic views or teachings, and could well be discerned through their gilding anamel by their colours of the anti-Christic false-hood and deceit, and there being no mid way house, between this present situation and the early Islamic era, the only alternative now is either a complete and abrupt nature turn to that same era of early Islam, or to move into the grievous punishment of the Baconian falsehood, a punishment which now is no hidden secret, namely, the flame so f a roaring, a growling and a bursting atomic hell, ready to consume the Christians the Muslims,

     the Hindus, and the Buddhists and all others that any where existed on earth. If, in order to escape this dreadful doom, this mankind desired to go back to the irreligious for safety, the first requisite for such a move appears to be their recantation of this materialistic view of the contemplation of the works of God. What the Muslims have to renew is faith and determination. They have a complete, perfect, intact and universal religion. Contemplate and perfect since the time of the Holy Prophet of Islam, peace be upon him. God has himself undertake to guard the Quran, and it has no doubt bee guarded to this day.

                    The Christian church a had prescribed the acquirement of knowledge, for the act of eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge and good and evil it was that had caused the expulsion of man from paradise. Came Bacon, and he took up the same point and argued that it was not the pursuit of natural philosophy that had been the cause of man's expulsions from the paradise, but it was the act of man's eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil that had been the cause of expulsions, and because the moral philosophy was based on the knowledge of good and evil, therefore man ought to pursue the natural philosophy (Science) as the command of God, and ought to avoid the pursuit of moral philosophy as proscribed by do to Adam. This thought of Bacon might appear strange, because religion, is based exclusively on moral philosophy and not on natural philosophy. And Bacon appears to have topsyturvied not only the Christian

     religion, but all religion. But bacon went further and he gave out the destiny of man and the purpose of His new philosophy as the attainment of man’s dominion over nature for material benefit. And Bacon, interested the purpose of Bible contemplation of the works of f God as the material exploitation of the works of f God, and asserted that man had in a vain and impious attempt resorted to the prohibited philosophy that is moral philosophy merely in order to give himself the law. The name as well philosophy of Bacon having been long forgotten, these vies that we have imputed to him might appear strange and doubtful. But his works are still extant, and his views may well be verified in his advancement of learning and Novum Orgaum. But stranger still is the fact that the entire world is adhering, completely, and entirely to the same views without knowing their origin or reality.

                    The Quranic concept of contemplation of the works of Allah is purely a concept of religious kind, and has nothing whatsoever to do with material utility. The Quran could never endorse the material view of contemplation, yet the religious concept of contemplation has completely been overwhelmed by the concept of material utility in this world is these days. And none today would care. The cry against Baconian progress could not be set up only in the presence of the havoc consequences of the arouse view, that have now appeared in a manner too manifest to be missed except by those against whom the dreadful decree of providence has gone.

                    The Quran has obviously laid considerable stress on the act of the contemplation of the works of Allah. But it is only as an aid to faith, and cannot originally create faith. In fact the works of Allah have been pointed to as a substitute or such miracles as were demanded of the prophets by the people in pre-Islamic times as a proof of the truth of the claim of the pretender of divine mission. The Quran too was presented to mankind as   a miracle in itself, and was to be contemplated besides the works of Allah, and no prophet was to follow Mohammad, the prophet of Islam, peace be upon hi,. Religion was brought to its ultimate perfection, and mankind was left to the Quran for eternal guidance. The mind of mankind too had reached a stage of development where the works of Allah could be substituted or the miracles shown by the prophets in pre-Islamic days.

                    When, the Baconian material set-up, with its tremendous prepare prehensile , and its flying banners, its convincing rationalism, and its sweet fruits, appeared on the Islamic world, it was at one accorded a welcome without so much as a site or a finger or a brow, as something that accorded will with the basic concept of Islam. If there were any differences with the western conquerors, those were of political or religious nature. This was because the Muslims did not understand, nor ever tried to understand the actual reality of this modern progress, and now when its dire and dreadful consequences are there, they are the victims of false optimism along with the rest o the mankind ,and they are, besides that, as helpless as the rest are. They are tried in the same like of chains, and being driven to the atomic hell, as others.

                    The people of the West took up the contemplation of the works of God, for the o sake of material exploitation of the works of God, and they did wonders, and achieved marvellous success in their enterprise due to honesty, sincerity, patience, perseverance, solicitude, endless labour and ceaseless till as article of faith. Bu they achieved their object, by deserting their faith. Their Bible was not the Bible of Moses and Christ. It a was the text book of science. Their guide was neither Jesus Christ, nor any of the his apostles or saints. It was the scientist. And they achieved their object because they plunged themselves in the battle of material utility with the spirit of a crusade, forgetting everything else, faith, religion, morality, the next world. Any nation therefore that desired to achieve similar success in progress, could not succeed as well unless and until followed the example of the West. Every nation on earth

     could do that, but their are conditions and requisites. But the case of the Muslims is different. The living religion still lives. And may be it is at logger-heads with this modern progress and culture.

                    Indeed, if any of the early commentators of the Quran were to see this modern progress as it is nothing but wonder would be his lotto reap from the attitude of the Muslims in this respect.  He would never be able to understand the justification of the material exploitation of the works of Allah though the Quranic concept of the contemplation of the works of Allah. The amazement of the present day Muslims, however, might begin with the bombardment of atomic bombs, or the attack of atomic radiations. It is to be wondered, whether then they will be ready to impute the grievous doom to the teachings of the Quran, that is the Quran which according to them allowed this modern progress. Nuclear jehannah, however, is the inevitable end of this Baconian material set-up. as a just, all-consuming retribution. And obviously if the view of the modern Muslims regarding the utilitarian contemplation correct, then all the Islamic

     generations of the pre-modern times had explicitly erred, and were to be regarded as blameable for so gross a neglect, and for so great an error.

                    So grossly and universally the Muslims are involved in the misunderstanding that the Quran approves the utilitarian view of the contemplation that no sooner the topic is touched, the answer of a Muslim will invariably be, indeed in the sincerest and surest of tones, “Why sir, do we not find in the Quran signs that exhort to contemplate the works of Allah, and has not the Quran dealt with the topic of the conquest of nature? And is not Islam a progressive religion? Progressive and dynamic. And has not the Quran enjoined on the Muslims to keep the war preparation in readiness, and is it not essential to have weapons of the same category as the other have?

                    Here then is a situation which deserves note. There is not a question among these that are quoted above, which is not perfectly correct. But it is in their interpretation and the application of these facts that the mistake appears. Quran does not mean material exploitation of the works of Allah by the contemplation thereof. And Islam is a progressive religion not in the sense that it is the religion of materialism. It is dynamic indeed but dynamic only as a religion of Allah, and not as a system of materialism. The Quran no doubt has enjoined the Muslims to keep the war preparations in readiness as a deterrent, t but the question is whether the atomic bomb, or the hydrogen bomb, or the neutron bomb is a weapon of war or defence. To the scientist an the hydrogen bomb is not a weapon but a means of compete annihilation of life on earth. To Quran it is the atomic hell. It is the retributive wrath of Allah. Both atomic bomb and

     atomic radiation defy any protect against them. The scientist hither to has failed completely in this respect, and the matter is without any doubt beyond the power of the scientist or the non-scientist. No defence is possible against the divine vengeance, and the wrath of Allah. Nor it is possible for ma to vast the atomic threat in the presence of its cause.

                    We have heard the questions put by the Muslims above. Very genuine questions indeed, but they could be answered with equal genuineness as follows:-

                    “Is not the result of this modern progress clearly the atomic hell? Could it not be seen even now? Do not this hell encompass the entire mankind, and is not the compete destruction of entire mankind quite certain? Does not the atomic bomb and the atomic radiation defy every means of defence? And do not the atomic radiations change the creatures to miserable, cancer-ridden chimeras before their final extinction? Nor would any one left to call himself the ictor after a universal atomic war. Nor would any one be able to live with immunity in a country in which atomic war has been fought. radiations make a healthy life impossible therein. Neither the Quran, nor any other book, and neither Islam nor any other religion could save this world from the atomic conflagration if this progress of a modern progress, is allowed to continue and complete its stages. The preparation of the means of atomic conflagration are ready, while the

     atomic conflict is quiet certain. Is it inevitable. Either therefore this progress or safety. To mean that either this progress shall be eradicated, or it will certainly destroy this mankind.

                    Now  if it is assumed hat the Quran approved of this Baconian materialism, and that the contemplation as is suggested by it, meant the exploration of the works of Allah, then, if this Baconian materialism ended in the flames of atomic hell, will it not men that the teachings of the Quran were such as led to the atomic annihilation of life? But are the teachings of the Quran a really such/Does not the Quran lead to that which is straightest? Is it then the straightest way to reach the inevitable hell of atomic flames? And is not Islam a religion of peace and bliss? Is it blissful then to enter the hell? Let, however its be made clear, that the atomic hell is the logical, the scientific and the inevitable consequence of the Baconian materialism, and is the result of the process of this modern progress is it is. The ruins of the church of Hiroshima might serve as also not those whose eyes are open to see and mind to think,

     that the same could and would happen to other churches.

                    The generality of the Islamic world gratefully ruminates over the thought that the discoveries of sciences furnished them with proofs of the truth of the doctrines of their religion without ever taking the notice of the scythe which science has at the same put to the roots of their religion, Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, and as if the doctrines so Islam were doubtful until proved by science. And it is interesting to note, that this science could not as a rule furnish a proof of any doctrine which happens to be beyond the five sense. And all the most important doctrines of religion, e.g. the unseen God, resurrection, all that is that side of the grave, and all the spiritual values are beyond the ken of this modern science. She is blind in them. What proofs can she produced to prove religion.

                    The intelligentsia of the Islamic world, with the exception of the Ulema are happy in the thought that the contemplation of the works of God as suggested by the Quran is resulting in discoveries of science, and implementing the utilitarian idea of the modern progress, and that was creditable to the Quran. And so whenever a fragment of a sentimental expression of a natural scientist comes to their sight, their hearts are filled with joy and they are lost in reverie, neither ever thinking of the nature of work the scientists did, nor giving any attention to the results which have appeared from their work in the form of miseries, discount, and above all else the all-consuming flames of nuclear jehannah. We shall quotient the following some examples of such expressions. Judge for yourself on the one hand the beauty and submit of these expressions, and on the other hand the nature of their field, and the results that have been

     produced, and then see if such expressions could be a sufficient bribe for the horrific results of science.

    (a)           “He who planted ears, shall he not hear?“ The idea of mind behind and mind within seems as rational and working hypothesis as any”.

    (c)           “The universe is ruled by mind as whether it I be the mind of a mathematician or of an ea artist or of a poet or all of them; it is throne reality which gives meaning to existence, enriches our deadly taste, encourages our hope and energises us with faith whenever knowledge fails”.

    (d)           “He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand up rapt in aware is as good as dead and his eyes are closed”.

    (e)           “When we stand and gaze upon the scene before us we grow to feel a part of it. Something in is communicates with something us. The communion brings us enjoy and joy brings exaltations.

    (f)            “Can anyone seriously suggest that this directing and regulating power originated in chance encounters of toms? Can the stream rise higher than the fountain?”.

    (g)           “The more we know the more we find there is to know. The farther we go the greeter is our joy. The deeper we penetrate the high-rise our exhalation. So on and on we shall go laymen and scientists alike. The shall benders top, because the lure is too great”.

    N.B. No doubt into the atomic hell.

    (h)           “Our minds are overwhelmed by immensity and majesty of nature”.

    (I)            “We hardly know which to admire the more. The mind that arranged nature or the mind which interpreted it”.

    (j)            “What a marvellous imagination God Almighty has”.

    (k)           “The universe looks more like a great thought than a great machine”.

    (l)            “One plan , many variations, one design many modifications, one truth many versions”.

    (m)          “O God! How marvellous are they works”.

    (n)           “The very law which moulds a tear and bids it trickle form its source, that law preserves the earth and guides the planets in their course”.

    (o)           “We must take such qualities of organism as varying, growing, multiplying developing, feeling and endeavouring. A study of such facts interests, educates, enriches and helps to keep alive the sense of wonder, which we hold to be one of the saving graces of life”.

    (p)           “Open thou mine eyes that I may behold wonders of thy creation”.

    (q)           “In these things, minute, what wisdom is displayed, what power and what unfathomable perfection”.

    ®             “He who cats himself on nature’s fair and full bosoms draws food and drink form a fountain that is never dry”.

    (s)" In contemplation of things, by steps we may ascend to God”.

    (t)            “How mighty and how majestic are thy works and with what appellant dread they swell the soul”.

    (u)           “It is wonder that man's brain reels before the infinitely great things of the universe on the one hand and the infinitely small things of nature on the other”.

    (v)           “It is impossible to conceive either the beginning or the continuance of life without an over ruin creative power. Over-power rising strong proofs of be enrolment and intelligent design are to be found around us, teaching that al living things depend on  ever-lasting Creator and ruler”.

    (w)          “So work the honey bees. Creatures that by a rule in nature, teach the at of order to the kingdom of people”.

    (x)            “The universe is a circle whose centre is everywhere, and circumference is nowhere”.

    (y)           “The trembling universe smut have been balanced it unthinkable precision”.

    (z)            “Mohammad was a great king, a mighty conqueror, and very clever and learned man. From the Quran we learn that he was a lover of nature and that he knew something of bees and the value of honey. He speaks of bews building nests for themselves and producing honey of various colours. These things were not obtained without a certain amount of inquiry and observation”.

    All these expressions are beautiful and inspiring. Interesting comments could be made on them but here we will desist. The last tone of these expressions however which is about Mohammed, the Prophet of Islam, peace be upon him, deserves notice. This observation as made by kater Lovell. There can be no doubt that Kater Loverl’s. There can be no doubt that Kater Lovel’s reflections are based on sincerity, and must have been meant as a genuine tribute which actually figures as a libel. Mohammad peace be upon him, was neither a king nor a conquer, but was the apostle of God. And the Quran owes nothing to his observation or ability. It is the word entirely of Allah revealed to him. The recognition of the knowledge of the Prophet and the extent allowed a so appears to be doubt a trifle.

                    We need not discuss these expressions above-quoted, because they only are the relics of by gone age, and are the expression of the past. Today no such sentiments are either thought of on recorded. Now either the problems of this science-guided age, or the subjects of the text books occupy both he mind of men and the pages of the books. Mankind has lost the Wordsworthian touch of contemplation. The practice of material exploitation of the works of God has extinguished that light,and the mind of man now is completely occupied by the worry of those problems which the material exploitation of the works of God has created, and by the constant dread of the hazards what are incident on the atomic phenomenon. Times e are coming when mankind will shun even the idea of the contemplation of the works of God due to the excruciating troubles, which this materialistic contemplation will have created for this mankind. Do we not see that

     in the beginning of this modern Baconian progress, the people had in their mind the idea of the contemplation of the works of God in religious spirit even in the material exploitation of the works of God. But gradually the idea of material exploitation prevailed, till nothing but material utility remained without any association of the thought of religion.

    Miracles were demanded as a proof of the truth of the mission of the prophets. The Quran says:-

                    “They said( to their prophets): Ye are but mortals like us, who would fain turn us away form what our fathers used to worship, then bring some clear warrant. Their prophets said unto them: We are but mortals like you, but Allah giveth grace unto whom he will of his sales. It is not ours to ring you a warrant unless by the permission of Allah. In Allah let believers put their trust”.

                    (Quran 14x10-11)

    If, however, a miracles was shown it was denounced as mere magic by these who did not want to believe. The Quran says:-

                    “(Pharaoh) Said (To Moses). If thou comest with a token, then produce it, if thou art of those who speak the truth. Then he (Moses) w flung down his staff and lo! it was a serpent manifest; and he drew forth his hand (from his bosom), and Lo! it was white for the beholders. The chief's of pharaoh’s people said: Lo! This is some expert magician, who would expel you from your land. Now what do you advise”?

                    (Quran 7x106-110)

    The people of Moses even went further and demanded t to see God by themselves. The Quran says:-

                    “And when ye said :O Moses! We will not believe in thee till we see Allah plainly; and even while ye gazed, the lightening seized you. Then we relived you after your extinction, that ye might give thanks”.

                    (Quran 2x55-56)

    The denial of the potent by the people is the cause of not showing the portents. God in the Quran says:-

                    “Naught thindereth us from sending portents save the folk of old denied them”.

                    (Quran 17x59)

    Even the prophet of Islam was obliged to show a miracle. The moon was rent in twin by the sing of his finger. But the result was that it was proclaimed as the magical illusion as usual. The Quran says:-

                    “The hour drew nigh and the moon was renting twin. And if they behold a portent they turn way and say: the same old magic”.

                    (Quran 54c1-2)

    The Jews too demanded a miracle of the Holy Prophet of Islam, peace be upon him, but the answer of the Quran was as follows:-

                    “They are those who say: Lo! Allah hath charged us that we believe not in any messenger until he bring us an offering which fire (from heaven) shall devour. Say unto them (O Mohammad)  : Messengers came unto you before me with miracles, and with that (very miracle) which ye describe. Why then did ye slay them? (Answer that) if ye are truthful”.

                    (Quran 3x183)

    The people demanded of the Holy Prophet of Islam peace be upon him to produce instantly before their eyes the pattern of the paradise which he promised to the pious. people. The Quran say:-

                    “And they says: We will not put faith in the till thou cause aspiring toughs forth form the earth for us. Or thou have a garden of date-palms and grapes and cause rivers to gush for the therein abundantly, or thou cause the heaven to fall upon a piecemeal, as thou hast pretended, or bring Allah and angels as a warrant. thou have a house of God, or thou ascend up into heaven, and even then we will put no faith in thine ascension till thou bring down for us a book that we can read. Say (O Mohammad) My Lord be glorified ! Am I naught save a mortal messenger? And naught prevented mankind from believing when the guidance came unto them save that they said: Hath Allah sent a mortal as (His) messenger?”.

                    (Quran 17x90-94)

    A portent is desired by the people of prophet of Islam but the answer of the Quran :-

                    “Those who disbelieve say : If only some portent were sent down upon him form his Lord. Thou art a warner only, and for every folk a guise”.

                    (Quran 13x7)


    “Say (unto them O Mohammad) : I am only a mortal like you. It is inspired in me that y our God is one God, therefore take the straight path unto Him and seek forgiveness of Him. And woe unto the idolaters, who give not the prude, and who are disbelieves in the hereafter”.

                    (Quran 41x6-7)

    Quran which was revealed to Mohammad, Peace be upon him, is declared by Allah as is own standing miracle and a perfect and complete guide to mankind. Allah says:-

                    “Verily, though mankind and Jinn should assemble to produce the like of this Quran, they could not produce the link thereof though they were helpers one of another. And verily we have displayed for mankind in this Quran all kinds of similitudes, but most of mankind refuse ought save disbelief”.

                    (Quran 17x88-89)

    And they insist o on a miracle such as to:-

                    “Cause a spring to gush forth form the earth.......Messenger”.

                    (Quran 17x90-94)

    Although the Quran comprises:-

                    “The sign of the scripture”.

                    (Quran 13x1)


                    “When our clear revelations are recited unto them, those who disbelieve say of the truth when it reacheth them, this is mere magic”.

                    (Quran 46x7)


                    “proofs have come unto you from your Lord, so whose seeth, it is for his own god, and whoso is blind is blind to his own hurt”.

                    (Quran 6x104)

    “Had it been possible for a lecture to cause the mountains to move, or thereto to be to turn asunder, or the dead to speak, (this Quran would have done so). Nay but Allah’s is the whole command”.

                    (Quran 13x31)

    “Will they then not meditate on the Quran, or are there locks on the hearts”.

                    (Quran 47x24)

    Contemplation as an aid to belief:-

                    “Lo! In the heavens and the earth are portents for believers. And in your creation, and all the beats that He scattereth in the earth, are portents for a folk whose faith is sure. And the difference of night and day and the provision that Allah sendeth down from the sky and thereby quickeneth the earth after herdeth, and theordering of the winds, are portents for a people who have sense. There are the portents of Allah sense. These are the portents of Allah which We recite unto thee with truth. Then in what fact, after Allah and his portents, will they deliver?”..

                    (Quran 45x3-5)


                    “Behold what is in the heavens and the earth! But revelations and warnings avail a not folk who will not believe”.

                    (Quran 10x101)


                    “Indeed it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts which are within the bosoms, that grow blind”.

                    (Quran 22x46)

    A characteristics instance of the Islamic contemplation of the works of Allah is to be found in the example of Abraham. Therein no factor of material utility is involved. It is purely a religious matter. The contemplation leads Abraham to the true God after rejecting the false ones. The Quran says:-

                    “Thus did We show Abraham the kingdom of  heavens and the earth that he might be of those possessing certainty: When the night grew dark upon him he beheld a star. He said this is My Lord. But when it set, he said. I love not things that set. And when he saw the moon uprising, he exclaimed: This I my Lord. But when it is set, he said: Unless my Lord guide me, I surely shall became of the folk who are astray. And when he saw the sun uprising the cried: This is My lord! This is greater ! and when it set he exclaimed: O my people! Lo! I am free from all they ye associate (with him).L! I have turned my face toward Him who created the heavens and the earth, as one by nature upright, and I am not of the idolaters”-.

                    Quran 6x75-79)

                    Read the above-quoted passage of the Quran carefully. Abraham indeed had the idea of the creator of the heavens and the earth. He only subjected the objects, that is star, moon, and sun to his scrutiny, for these were those very objects which were worshipped as God in those days. He set the criterion that of setting before him, and he rejected to accept as god anything which he did set. This is a specimen of contemplation.  Contemplation does not create faith originally . It only helps to discover the issues an it helps to make inference form the faces. This point will find clarification when we will explain the objects other contemplation as are set forth by the Quran.

                    Abraham left his son in a barren land and not a fertile land. He built the house of God (in Mecca) and not a laboratory for material utility. And he seats his object the religion of one true God and not the wealth of the world. The same applies to the contemplation. It is subservient to the views of religion and not the material utility. The duties of the prophet of Islam, peace be upon him, are enumerated by the Quran as follows:-

                    “(He)  reciteth unto them His (God’s) revelations, and purifies them and teacheth them the scripture and wisdom”.

                    (Quran 3x164)

    And this is exact response to the prayer of Abraham:-

                    “Our Lord! And raise up in their midst a messenger from among them who shall recite unto them they revelations and shall instruct them in the scripture and in wisdom, and shall purify them. Lo! Thou, only thou, art the mighty, wise”.

                    (Quran 2x129)

    Religious and moral side even in worldly matters was that only which was taught by the prophet of Islam, peace be upon him. He never a taught the methods of processes of material utility. Once when the Holy Prophet observed the people spreading pollen on the palm trees, He forbade them the practice. But when the product of fruit in that season appeared much less, the prophet said: You know your worldly matters better. Hazrat Omer Ibn-ul-Aziz admonished his tax-collectors saying, Allah had sent the prophet as His prophet and not as a tax-collector. Desist therefore form demanding zimmi tax from the Muslims, even if the treasury remains empty. Also once, when the Prophet, peace be upon him, was requested to issue orders to bring the rates which had enormously risen in the market down, he declined to do so. However, the next day he went to the market and made an appeal to the merchants which had a prompt effect and the rates instantly went down. The same

     rules has to be applied to the contemplation of the works of Allah, which only has the religious ends and objects and not material or worldly.

                    When the material contemplation of modern Baconian philosophy is viewed against the religious contemplation of the Quranic view it oracles to our mind the third named as crane is English, Kraan in Dutch and Karanich in German. This is a long-legged and long-wrecked bird generally found standing in water near the bank with its head lowered as if in mediation.. But no sooner then a frog pears before it than it plucks at it and swallows it with a gulp and again is lost in its reverie. This is the example o modern Baconian utilitarian contemplation of the works of God. It may be said that the modern Baconian, utilitarian contemplation against the divine contemplation is the Cranic contemplation against the Quranic contemplation. Anther example is that of a son who from a distant land sent to his widowed mother a tiny bird that spoke many languages. And when in a letter he asked his mother, “How a had she liked there bird”.

     The reply was “very tasty dear son”.

                    How to do the contemplation of the works of Allah, is the question. Surely no one anywhere in these times may be seen in contemplation of the works of Allah according to the objects to the Quran, and the contemplation in these times is being done on the Baconian pattern of utilitarianism, in science laboratories and in observatories. The general public, however is engrossed in the financial worries and wants. The Quranic contemplation has to be done with anti-world, and anti-materialistic views, of the Quran, and its views abut Allah, resurrection, judgement and the next world in mind. This will be a contemplation on the liens of the Quran, though it does not appear possible as long as this Baconian philosophy and its science-guided progress exits.

                    We will quote the examples from the Quran which give the various objects of contemplation. We, however, behave strained out prayers to the utmost, and have viewed the Quran from every angle in order to find any hint or illusion in any way reminiscent of material utility in connection with the contemplation of the works of Allah or God or Lord God, but with no success. And have reaped only owner from the sagacity of those millions to whom a conspicuous link between the Quranic contemplation of the works of Allah and the material exploitation of the works of God appears in this modern Baconian progress.

                    And alas! A sad misunderstanding is there in every mind that most urgently needs clearance. Namely the general notion that, we can accomplish both the glorification of the creator and the material utility at the same time in the contemplation of the works of God. How dearly it is wished it could have been a possibility in this Baconian set-up of this systematic, organised, ever-increasing, eternal and infinite kind of a progress gaudier by an equally systematic, organised, ever-increasing, endless, infinite and eternal kind of science, which gradually would occupy greater and greater part of man's mind and time, expelling at the same time and proportionally the thought of God, death, religion, resurrection and the next world from the mid and time of man, till eventually it would end either in a sudden explosion, or would ruin this life on earth through somatic and genetic effects o the radiation of the atomic

     energy-fore-peace. Just observe at present in his state of the world, how much thought of God, religion and the next world is left in man’s mind, and how much glorification of the creator is being effected in the contemplation of the natural objects.  And remember, that this world wont only could not exist without faith, but also that the inevitable and of this Baconian progresses in ruin.

                    The best possible method of distinctly explaining the Quranic view of the contemplation of the works of God is to quote examples which show the objet thereof. And this we will endeavour to do in the following:-

    (1)           The act of contemplation begins with a notion of certainty in mind of some purpose of this creation. Remembrance of Allah is the object. The works of Allah present objective, substantial view or the remembrance of the creator thereof. The Quran says:-

                    “Lo! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and (in) the difference of might and day a are tokens (of his sovereignty) or men of understanding such as remember Allah, standing, sitting and reclining and consider the creation of the heavens and the earth, (and say) Our Lord thou createdst not this in vain. Glory be to thee, preserve us form the doom of fire: Our Lord! Whom thou causest to enter the fire : him indeed thou hast confounded. For evil-doers there will be no helpers. Our Lord, Lo! We have heard a crier calling unto faith! Believe ye in your Lord, therefore forgive us our sins, and remit from us our evil deeds, and make us die the death of the rigorous. Our Lord! and give us that which thou hast promised to us by the messengers. Confounded us not upon the day of resurrection.. Lo! Thou breakest not the tryst”.

                    (Quran 3x190-194)

                    Read the above-quoted example of the contemplation of the works of Allah, and mark that no allusion whoever appears to the material utility of the works of Allah. And mark also, the prophetic fulfilment of the appearance of fire even within this every world. Mankind now stands face to face with the cofoundating hell of atomic fire as a result of their love of this world and its wealth, and the accumulation of wealth in the name of progress. Please mark throughout these examples which we will quote in this context, firstly, that there is no connection between the objects of Quranic contemplation of the works of Allah and the notion of their material exploitation. And secondly that the act of Quranic contemplation of the works of Allah is purely of a natural moral, religious and divine. And thirdly hat it should be accomplished without the accompaniment of the aids and instruments of this modern since. And fourthly that the

     discoveries of science have sided and abetted the contemplation of the works of Allah but little, awhile the objects of the two that is the Quran and science in this respect have nothing in common, and rather stand in radical position.

    (2)           And the purpose is a vision and reminding of Allah’s sovereignty:-

                    “Have they not observed the sky above them , how have We constructed it and beautified it, and how there are no rifts therein? And the earth We have spread out, and have flung firm hills therein, and have caused of every lovely kind to grow therein. A vision and a reminder of every penitent slave”.

                    (Quran 50x6-8)

    (3)           And the object is to discern the certainty of man’s meeting with the Lord on the day of judgement:-

                    “Allah it is who raised up the heavens without visible supports, then mounted the throne and compelled the sun and the moon to be c of service, each runneth onto an appointed term; He ordereth the course; He detaileth the signs, that haply yet may be certain of the meeting with your Lord”.

                    (Quran 13x2)

    (4)           And the object is to observe the example of resurrection:-

                    “And Allah is He who sendeth the winds and the raise cloud, then. We lead it unto a dead land and revive therewith the earth after its death. Such is the resurrection”.

                    (Quran 35x9)

    (5)           And the object is to see though this original creation the fact of the second birth on resurrection:-

                    “Say go through the earth, and see He hath brought forth created beings, hereafter, with a second birth will God cause them to be borne again; for Allah is Al-mighty”.

                    (Quran 29x20)

                    Read this above-quoted example which furnishes us with glaring specimen of comparison in this context between the object of the Quran and that of Darwin of this modern Baconian ere. Darwin did exactly what the Quran has suggested when it says “Go through the earth, and see how he hath brought forth decreased beings”. Darwin went through the earth in his voyage, and he tried to see how the created being had been brought forth. He devoted his life to seeking the origin of species on earth. But what was his object? Was it as the Quran has hinted, the attainment of the proof of the second birth on resurrection? Or was it something else? It is not without truth, that the exploding of the religious theory of instantaneous birth of creatures was among the objects of the search of the origin of species. Whatever might have been the object of the search of Darwin, it was not that which the Quran has given, nor there pears any

     violation of their rules or decency if it is said, that the work of Darwin form its beginning to its end---------bitch the search and the conclusion------s reminiscent of something sinister about it, sinister as well as loathsome.  And whereas science has failed to find the origin o species in spite of all its knowledge and its appendages, as far as the point of the Quran is concerned in this respect, it is the easiest thing for any individual to see the possibility of a second birth by seeing the example of this first birth.

    (6)           And the object is to know the serious and the fixed term of the creation, and to have the consequent certainty of the resurrection and the judgement:-

                    “Have they not considered within themselves that Allah hath not created the heavens and he earth, and all that is between them but for a serious end, and for a fixed term? But truly most men believe not that they shall meet their Lord?”.

                    (Quran 30x8)

    (7)           And the object is to view Allah’s government, control , order, power and complete uncharged sovereignty, and the helplessness of those associated with Him as God:-

                    “He causeth the night to enter in upon the day, and the day to enter in upon the night; and He hath given laws to the sun and the moon, so that each journeys the to its appointed goal. This is God your Lord. All power is His. But the gods whom ye call on beside Him have no power over the husk of adequateness”.

                    (Quran 35x13)

    (8)           And the object is to know the omnipotence, and constant vigilance of the creator. And this clemency and forgiveness:-

                    “Verily Allah holdeth fast the heavens and the earth that they pass not away. And if they were passing away none could hold them back but He. For He is ever clement, forgiving”.

                    (Quran 35x41)

                    Read the above-quoted example. Newton might attribute the fact of sustaining the members of the solar system to get her to the laws of gravity. Or Einstein might attribute the same fact to relativity. And there is no doubt that this universe is functioning according to the laws which the creator has ordained or the purpose. But here is a subtle distinction in this matter to which we like to point, namely, that Allah appears to insist with particularity upon his claim that every act I the phenomena of the universe has to be attributed to Him alone. And every man with a religious bend of mind has adopted this rule. You will hear t him saying:, Allah has brought the rain. Allah has cleared the sky. And so on so forth. But the scientist stops at the principle of science. And there is no doubt that every thing ultimately is connected with the will of God. The object of scientist in this respect is short  and limited so is his


    (9)           And the object is to find reason to be grateful to Allah for his boons:-

                    “More-over, the dead earth is a sign of to them: We quicken it and bring forth the grain from it, and they eat thereof: And we make in it gardens of the date and vine, and we cause springs to gush forth in it; that they may seat of its fruits, and their hands made it not. Will they not therefore be thankful”.

                    (Quran 36x33-35)

    “And their hands made it not”, says the Quran in the a above quoted passage. There is something real thought-provoking and effect effective in it. Also it may be observed that the subject of the passage is the material utility, but it is not the object of contemplation thereof. The object is thanks giving.

    (10)         And the object is to realise, that the bestowal of wealth is in the bands of Allah:-

                    “See they not that Allah bestoweth full supplies on whom He pleaseth and giveth sparingly to whom He pleaseth? Signs truly are there herein to those who believe”.

                    (Quran 30x37)

                    Read the above-quoted passage to realise, that apart from all the philosophy o  the factors like struggle, hard-worked and ability, there always appears some power which could as light all these factors, and distributes wealth in a a manner whose reasons could hardly be comprehended by man. This I proves absolute wilt and unquestionable sovereignty. of Allah .  A Socrates may fret in poverty, but a plodding dunce may be found to play in millions. There might be reasons for that discrimination, but we generally do not know.

    (11)         And the object is to grain insight and see admonition though the works of Allah is in order to turn to him:-

                    “Will they not look up to the heavens above them, and consider how We have reared it and decked it forth, and that there are no flees therein? And as to the earth, we have spread it out, and throw the mountains upon it, and have caused an uprgroath in it of all beauteous kinds of plants, for insight and administration to every servant who loveth to turn to Allah”.

                    (Quran 50x6-8)

    (12)         And the object is to observe the dominion of Allah in the heavens and the earth:-

                    “Have they not considered the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and what things Allah hath created, and that it may be that their own term draweth might? In what fact after this will they believe?”.

                    (Quran 7x185

                    Now read this above quoted passage other Quran and see that Allah’s dominion means a contradiction of Bacon’s notion of man’s dominion over the universe. And note the prophetic utterance therein, that it may be that their own term draweth night”. and there is no doubt that the disregard of the dominion of God in the universe by this present Baconian age due to the notion of their own dominion over nature, has brought the term of this modern mankind near through the atomic ruin. However, there we are concerned with the topic of contemplation only, but let it be remembered, that contemplation pervades every subject and every object, because it is the thought, and as thought it is concerned with everything that God has created. And let the question of the Quran in the above-quoted passage be repeated, “In what fact after this will they believe?”. This question may with real aptness be put to this modern mankind

     saying “In what fact after the manifest appearance of this atomic hell will you believe?”. Indeed, though hitherto they appear to be quite unmindful of the atomic hazard, and they appear to be hopeful. And no body to tell them of the falsity of their hope.

    (13)         And the object is to foster fear of God which is the essence of knowledge, and piety:-

                    “Hast thou not seen how Allah causeth water to fall from the sky, and We produce therewith the fruit of divers hues; and among the hills are steaks white and red, of divers hues , and (others) proven-black; and of men and beasts and cattle, in like manner, diverse hues? The learned only among his bondsmen fear Allah”.

                    (Quran 35x27-28)

    (14)         And the object is to distinguish between the creation and the creator:-

                    “And of his portents ware the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Adore not the sun nor the moon; but adore Allah who created them, if it is truth Him whom ye worship”.

                    (Quran 41x37)

                    Modern mankind has misunderstood the purpose of contemplation due to the veil of the love of the world on their eyes. How, it is not known the following saying of the prophet of Islam, peace be upon him, is read by the Muslims, but the truth is just as the prophet has said, namely:-

                    “The love of the world is the root cause f every mistake”.

                    We have given most of therein objects of contemplation of the works of Allah as the Quran has given. Our basic object here is to show that the Quranic contemplation of the woks f Allah is subservient to religion purely, and has to do nothing with the material utility of the works of Allah, in contrast with the Baconian view which exclusively is concerned with the material utility of the works of God in the name of contemplation. The Quran may be read form its beginning to its end to find any connection between the contemplation and c material utility. The chance of success, however, is dubious, But the realisation of the truth r needs predisposition of mind. The Quran says:-

                    “Behold what is in the heavens and the earth! But revelations and warnings avail not folk who will not believe”.

                    (Quran 10x101)


                    “Indeed it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts, which are within the bosoms, that grow blind”.

                    (Quran 22x46)



    Whoso is blind here will be blind in the hereafter, and yet further form the road”.

                    (Quran 17x72)


                    “He will say: My Lord! Wherefore hast thou gathered me (hither) blind, when I was wont to see? He will say: (So It smut be).Our revelations came unto thee but thou didst forget them. In like manner thou art forgotten this day”.

                    (Quran 20x 125-126)


                    “Had it been possible for a lecture (Quran) t because the mountains to move, or the earth to be torn asunder, or the dead to speak, (this Quran would have done so), Nay, but Allah’s is the whole command”.

    (Quran 13x31)


                    “if we had caused this Quran to descend upon a mountain, thou verily hadst seen it humbled, rent asunder by the fear of Allah. Such similitude coin We for mankind that haply they may reflect”.

                    (Quran 59x21)

                    There appear in the Quran a species of verses (signs), that are of the same category as those of the speculative contemplation, but are concerned with particularly the fact of subjection and subjection of the universe and all that is in it to man’s service by Allah. Due to the factor of serviceability of the things appearing I in direct reference I these signs in question, there occurs a considerable probability of man’s mind being deluded into the subjugation and material utility of the works of God by man, and the point of emulation was thereby intended. A delusion most likely to appear in the case of this modern much cherished progress. These signs recalled generally ad he signs of Taskhir-il-Kaayinaat at, that is the conquest of the universe, and a recited by the Muslims with greater surety, and added zest and enhanced gusto, in favour of this Baconian progress. It is for us now to seek the actual truth of these

     signs and this we will endeavour to b do. Following is a specimen  of these signs:-

                    “See ye not how Allah hath made serviceable unto you whatsoever is in the earth and hath loaded you with his favours both without and within?  Yet of mankind is he who disputeth concerning Allah, without knowledge or guidance or a scripture giving light”.

                    (Quran 31x20)

                    Read  this above-quoted passage of the Quran to find that it is clearly an example of the contemplation. And although material utility is the object of the topic, yet the act material utility here as everywhere has to follow the basic policy of the Quran about this world and its wealth. And if the modern Baconian progress is not accept rate to the Quran as a rule, it could notion any way be rendered acceptable in this passage of the Quran, or in any other passage of this kind.

                    Allah in this passage reminds the mankind o his kindness in having rendered all that is in the universe as serviceable to man and has expressed wonder at those who in spite of having seen all this should dispute about the unity, sovereignty and kindness of Allah.

                    The phrase, that is” rendered serviceable”. is the translation of the Arabic word “Sakhara” the word used by the Quran, and means “to force to do something for nothing”. And the point which needs to be carefully noted is that it is Allah himself who asserts to have his left rendered all these things serviceable to man. And in return has expected allegiance and gratitude of man. There appears no hint at the emulation of Allah on the part of man. But all the misunderstanding appears as an hasty conclusion made in the heat of inner desire of wealth and urgent necessity.

                    Allah expects gratitude ‘ The Quran says:-

                    “Allah is He who hath made these serviceable unto you that he ships may run thereon by his command, and that ye may seek of His bounty, and that haply eye maybe thankful. And b hath made of service unto you whatsoever is in the heavens and whosoever is in the earth; It is all form Him. Lo! Herein verily are portents for people who reflect”.

                    (Quran 45x12-13)

    We will see throughout the category of these signs, that Allah asserts his particular declaim to have his life rendered the things serviceable to man, and expects gratitude.

                    Read this above-quoted passage to know that firstly. Allah has expected gratitude or his kindness, and secondly has pointed to His boons as portents for reflection to discover the sovereignty, unity, mercy and grace of Allah. It has to be noticed that the point of material utility has not been treated as the object. The object rather is the gratitude, and Allah’s assertion to have done himself all this for man.

                    Allah expects gratitude: The Quran says:-

                    “And it is He who constrained the sea to be of service that ye may cater fresh meat from thence. And bring forth from thence ornaments which ye aware. And though seest the ships ploughing it what ye may seek of His bounty, and they haply ye may give thanks”.

                    (Quran 16x14)

                    Allah is in this above-quoted passage has expected gratitude for these boons, and has used the phrase, “seeking the bounty of Allah”, for material utility, whereas the functionaries of Baconian progress seek not the bounty of Allah, but they do exact tribute from nature by force and tact, and they seek omission over nature. This according to the theological views makes a lot of difference.

                    Protestants are therein for people who have sense:-

                    “And he hath constrained the night and the day and the sun and the moon to be  of service unto you, and the stars are made subservient by his command. Lo! Herein indeed are portents for people who have sense”.

                    (Quran 16x12(

    But man a wrong-doers and ingrate:-

                    “Hew giveth you all ye ask of Him, and if ye would count the bounty of Allah ye cannot reckon it. Lo! Man is verily a wrong-doer, an ingrate”.

                    (Quran 14x32-34)

                    It may be asked, if God is so averse to material utility, why then should he ask man’s gratitude for the material utility of his boons. The answer is that God is not averse to man’s partaking of his boons, but it is the kind of the doctrine of material utility, and the purpose thereof that counts. We are confronting this modern Baconian doctrine of material utility, which engenders a systematic, organised , ever-increasing and infinite pattern of progress, and is regarded as the purpose of mans’ life. Also, The basic policy of the Quran regarding, this world, its wealth, and the material utility has to be kept in mind, which is averse.

                    The example of contemplation is the Bible. Note the identity of style and purpose with the Quran:-

                    “The pride of the height, the clear firmament, the beauty of heaven, with his glorious show; the sun when it appeareth, declaring this thing a marvellous instrument, the work of the most thigh.......great is the Lord that made it. and at his commandment it runneth hostility. He made the moon also to serve in here season for a declaration of time ,and assign of the world.......the beauty of the heaven, the glory of the stars, an ornament giving light in the highest places of the Lord. At the command of the Holy one they will stand in their order, and e never faint in their watches. Look upon the rainbow, and praise Him that made it; very beautiful it is in the brightness thereof. It compasseth the heaven about with a glorious circle, and the hands of the most high have bended his counsel He appeareth the deep, and planeteth islands therein,......We may speak much and yet come short: Wherefore is um, he is


                    (The Bible-Ecclesiasticus XLIII-1-27)

    Mark that the praise and the glory of the creator is the purpose and not the material utility:-


                    “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth his handiwork”.

                    (The Bible-Psalms XIX-1)

    The Quran, never, has treated the contemplation as a complete subject.

                    We will cite an example of the contemplation by Jesus Christ to show that the contemplation reflects the basic tendency of the views. Jesus Christ famed for the doctrine of poverty says:-

                    “Behold the fowls of the air, for they show not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the Illinois of field, how they grow,’ they toil not, neither do the they spin: And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all y his glory was not arrayed like one of these”.

                    (St. Mathew I-26-29)

    And then read the following form the Quran to discover the identity of views between the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Quran:-

                    “And how many an animal there is that beareth not its own provision! Allah provideth for it and for you. He with hearer the knower”.

                    (Quran 29x60)


                    “There is not a beast in the earth but the substance thereof dependeth on Allah. He knoweth its habitation and its repository. All is in a clear record”.

                    (Quran 11x6)

    And now we will exemplify this Baconian method of contemplation, that is the contemplation of the works of God for the material exploitation of the works of God. The design of Bacon’s characteristics contemplation of the works of God is:-

                    “ By means of inquirers some of which should be experimental like those of Al-Chemists? But purged from superstitious taint and directed not toward immediate gain, but toward a through going knowledge vastly to increase in the long run the dominion of man over nature.......And through resolute and patient persistence in discriminating observation ,and as well-devised experiment, man may wring the secrets from nature and turn them to this own advantage”.

                    (Pages 11-113)

                    When the mode of Baconian contemplation is seen in comparison with the mode of religious contemplation, the following Quranic example appears to depict the perversion of Baconian contemplation:-

    (a)           The Chidden of Israel asked Moses to let them settle in acuity. The they were allowed and were told to enter the city saying Hittaton which means forgive our sings and moving in humble posture. This may be likened to religions contemplation. But what they actually did was, that instead of saying hittaton, they went saying : Hintaton, which means give us what, and instead of f entreating the age prostrate, they indecently crept upon their breach in ridicule of divine command, which may be likened to Baconian contemplation, that is the contemplation for material exploitation. The Quran has recorded this instance as follows:-

                    “And when it was said unto them: dwell in this township and eat therefrom whence ye will, and say hittaton (repentance), and enter the gate prostrate; We will forgive you your sins; we shall increase (reward) for the right-doers. But those of them who did wrong changed the word which had been told therefor another saying, and we sent down upon them wrath form heaven fro their wrong-doing”.

                    (Quran 7x161-162)

                    It is said that a pestilence broke out among them, and seventy thousand of them were akin away. However, it is difficult to estimate how many will be taken away by the atomic pestilence for this Baconian contemplation.

    (b)           Another example rise that in the days of David Some Israelites dwelt at Allah to Lath, on the red sea. There on the night of the Sabbath the fish used to come in greater numbers to the sore, and stay there all the Sabbath to tempt them, But the night following they returned to the sea again. Al length some of the inhabitants, neglecting God’s command cached. fish on the Sabbath and dressed and ate them; and afterward cut canals from the sea, for the fish to enter, with sluices, which they shut on the Sabbath, to prevent their return to these. The other part of the inhabitants, who strictly observed the Sabbath, used both persuasion and force to stop this impiety, but to no purposes, the offenders growing only more and more obstinate, whereupon David cursed the Sabbath-breakers, and God transformed them into space. It is said that one gong to see a friend of his that was among them, fund him in the shape of an ape, moving his

     eyes about wildly; and asking him whether he was not such a one, the ape made assign with his head that it was he; whereupon the fiend sidt him, Did not I advise you to desist? At which  the ape wept. These unhappy people remained three days in this condition, and were afterward destroyed by a wind which swept them all that he sea. The Quran s has recorded the tragic event as follows:-

                    “And ask them of the township that was by the sea, how they did break the Sabbath, how their big fish came unto them visibly upon their Sabbath day. And on a day when they did not keep Sabbath came they not to them. Thus did We try them for that they were evil-livers. And when community among them. said: Why preach ye to a folk whom Allah is about to destroy and punish with an awful doom, hey said: In order to be free from guilt before your Lord, and that haply they may ward off( evil). And when they forgot that where of they had been reminded, We rescued those who forbade wrong, and visited those who did wrong with dreadful punishment because they were evil-livers. So when they took pride in that which they had been forbidden. We said unto them: Be e apes despised and loathed”.

                    (Quran 7x163-166)

                    The Sabbath breakers who played a trick for material utility were changed that appears. But the Baconian utilitarian are to be flung into the atomic hell. Just sae the difference, and the comparative degree of guilt and wonder. And maybe that Darwin might have found some resemblance between the habits of apes and the people of this modern Baconian age. God knows better. Radiations, however, do change mankind to chimeras (monkeys).How similar, the end.

                    An example which bears exact analogy with the mode of Baconian contemplation is that of pharaoh. He also wanted to contemplate in an endeavour to see the God of Moses. The Quran says:-

                    “And pharaoh said: O Chiefs! I know not that ye have a God other than me, so kindle for me a fire O Human, to bake the mud; and set up for me a lofty tower in order that I may survey the God of Moses, and Lo! I deem him of the liars”.

                    (Quran 28x38)

                    It appears that the Muslims have lost the sense of all those signs of the Quran, and all the traditions of he Holy Prophet, peace be upon him which go against this world, its love and its wealth. The Quran may be read to see that the word of Allah has scarcely exhaled a breath throughout without condemning, depreciating, and denouncing this world, its love, and the love of its wealth against the other world. The same could be said of the trend of the Holy Prophet of Islam peace be upon him. Indeed the hatred of this world had been the basic sprit and the constant theme both of the Quran and the Holy Prophet peace be upon him. The Muslims were perpetually warned against the hazards of the love of wealth. Did not he prophet say: O Muslims I fear not for your poverty, but what I fear is the accumulation of wealth, for I fear that you will be destroyed for your wealth accumulation just as those in the past were destroyed for

     their wealth accumulation”. And did he not say” If it is not possible for anyone to walk over water without having his feet being wet, it is not possible for anyone to be involved in the world and avoid the sin”. And that “ the love of the world is the root cause of every sin”. The truth of the truthful prophet of Allah has appeared now without any doubt. This world including the Islamic World is now on the brink of destruction or no other reason than their love of wealth and their wealth accumulation. The very moment when the Muslims will realise the truth of this fact, they will wonder at their previous misunderstanding about the view of the Quran and the Holy Preheat regarding these transitory world. And then when they will read the signs concerning the contemplation of the works of Allah, they will see nowhere the factor or material utility therein, and they will wonder at those who ited such signs to prove the compatibility between the

     view of the Quran and this Baconian materialistic progress. yet, if once the fire of atomic hell flared up and this world was caught in the flames o thereof, nothing whatsoever could be of any avail. The gates of repentance will by then have been closed.

    ISLAM is based upon the concept of HATRED as against the concept of LOVE, although an spiritualistic philosophy should be based on 'Love' ideally. Moreover, Islam also promotes ‘Ego Accumulation’ as against the Hindu or Spiritualistic concept of ‘Ego Elimination’. Due to this reason it has lost many chances of making introspection & improvement in last 50 years, when it was first humiliated by a tiny nation like Israel.

    However Islamists took no lessons, and there 'Ego' kept on rising due as fuelled by the continuous supply of fuel (OIL).


    But now ISLAM is going to pay the maximum price for all its accumulated sins against the humanity since its inception 1400 years ago. At Present it is US & UK only, which seem to be determined on "War against Islam" (WaI) but gradually ISLAM will face a joint retaliation by the whole, united and determined world, which is currently divided into four camps now a under:


    1. Secular

    2. Hindu

    3. Buddhist

    4. Christian


    Islamic Terrorists are trying to gain control in Pakistan, which is a nuclear nation. When they will succeed in Pakistan then only the whole mankind will realise the danger/threat posed by Islamists before the survival of Humanity & future of the Globe. However, such a development will only precipitate sudden demise of Islam on the pattern of demise of Marxism during the last decade of last century.


    Sins & Crimes committed by ISLAM can never go unpunished as per the divine Laws of Karma & Dharma. Humiliation of ISLAM in Afghanistan/ IRAQ etc. is no match to the gross volume of sins & crimes committed by the doctrines of Islam against the humanity in last 1400 years. Islam has sought for all kind of Sacrifices (Qurbani) from their followers & humanity so far, and now it is the turn of Islam to opt for sacrifice (Qurbani).


    Terrorists can't save Islam from certain demise. Rather they are accelerating the demise of Islam through all those acts of their madness.


    Islam was never a religion. It was merely a doctrine, which manipulated a large chunk of human population to opt for self-imposed slavery. Therefore I always advised my Muslim Brothers to liberate themselves from the Slavery of Koran & Islam, which has only coined two most dirty concepts (Kafir & Jehaad) without providing any genuine concept of Spiritualism.


    Only way to save ISLAM lies in dropping these 'two words' from Koran altogether. If MUSLIMs will not drop the words like KAFIR & JEHAAD from their KORAN at their own, then US will erase them forcefully in the next phases of WaT( War against Terrorism). I am very sure that WaT will ultimately convert into WaI (War against Islam), if the Muslims will not revise their Koran & religion to suit the modern times & modern human beings.


    I am not bothered if ISLAM can be saved or not because I am only interested in the welfare of my Muslim Brothers, who are the biggest victim of this hate philosophy, known as ISLAM in its current edition.


    I can only see & say that ISLAM will not be able to witness the SUN-RISE of the next century provided it is not overhauled completely by making use of the Spiritualistic & Democratic principles and ideas of this age . They can continue to believe in Mosque, Namaz & Roza but if they will dare to believe in dangerous & dirty concepts like KAFIR & JEHAAD then I am sure they will suffer. How can one convince the advanced brains of this 21st century that it is an internal matter of ISLAM, when these concepts are solely designed & targeted against the non-believers i.e. Non-Muslims of Islam & Koran only/specifically?


    Only solution lies in Liberation of Muslims from this hateful Doctrine of ISLAM or overhauling of ISLAM by scrapping the "Unholy KORAN", which contains anti-human & anti-democratic concepts like KAAFIR & JEHAAD.


    If Muslims will not edit & purify Koran voluntarily by dropping all the hatred filled reference to non-believers, then US is duty bound by the divine to erase/delete dirty concepts like KAFIR & JEHAD forcibly to liberate Muslims from the slavery of this un-holy book.


    OPERATION DISMANTLE ISLAM has already begun. WaT is the first phase of WaI. It is inevitable because Bin Laden has awakened the world. However, Bin Laden will be remembered as the Last Prophet of Islam & not the Mohammed Sahab.

    subject Re: “Islamic Terrorism”: There is nothing called the 'moderate Taliban' , NewAgeIslam.Org - 13 Apr, 2009




    No matter how much you and your master (terrorist triangle) - [US + UK + Israel] try to destroy Islam,  it will continue to grow.


    Despite you and your master creating rifts between Muslims, it won't work.  Because there are no such thing called Sunni Muslims, Shia Muslims, Wahabi Muslims, Ismaeli Muslims, Pagal Muslims, Kuttas Muslims, Christian Muslims, Hindu Muslims, Jewish Muslims.   No sir......  They are all Fasiq and have nothing to do with Islam.


    The followers of Islam are one called "MUSALMAAN" "period".  Who believes on what it ordered in Holy Quraan and instructed by Prophet Mohammad SAW "period" -- No plus no minus.  These peoples called in Holy Quraan as "Hizb-e-Allah" and they are the one selected for "Janna" (Pradise).  Rest are all garbage called "Hizb-e-Shiatan and reserved their place in Hell Fire.


    There are no short cuts to go into Jannah, as Fasiq peoples believe. 


    SO PLEASE EITHER BECOME "MUSALMAAN" or become part of "Naar-e-Jahanum". 






    I personally don't care much "Taliban" or no Taliban.  But one thing for sure, Paki-rapist-gay Military deserve to get treatment as they are getting.

    Akbar, you are 100% right.

    These Americans are most immature people on this planet.

    Anyone can befool them...may be it is Zionist...may be it Islamists.

    They want to achieve success on the basis of TRICKS only but can never have genuine faith in TRUTH.

    subject:  extremists are losing...


    Yes I feel that they are losing, if not war at least battles.

     I have noticed the anxiety Sufi Saheb shows for the signing and approval of agreement on swat by President Zardari, who apparently is no more interested either because of pressure from West or wants o bring in Nawaz shareef to accede to this agreement; he wants to show US that Nawaz Shareef is not the person who can fight and destroy the terrorist strongholds in Pakistani territory. Asif Zardari has sent the draft to Parliament for its consent and now everyone has to wait what other parties in Parliament, including Nawaz Shareef's party have to say about the new regulation which allows the Talibani version of Sharia in the Malakan area, particularly Swat. The vote of MQM, the most vocal group against Taliban (for own political ends in Karachi) would be very interesting, this group makes a loud noise but always votes where directed by major collation partner and establishment.


    Many call Swat arrangement as peace deal, but others have reservations about it; to them it is surrender of state power before the barbaric Taliban, who after killing mercilessly hundreds of people in Swat, exploding girls schools have also flogged a 17 years old young girl publicly in some part of Swat under their control. This video, which was not denied initially, had to be rejected even by Talibans as fake, because they knew that they have lost much of the sympathy of silent majority of Pakistanis who believed that war against extremists is not their war, but has been imposed on Pakistan by US. But after release of this video many of them have started looking other side, they are now listening to those who for the last several years were telling them that extremism is destroying our whole society and if not stopped immediately it will overpower the administration in NWFP and after that it will move downwards towards mainland- Pnujab and Sindh, and eastwards to Baluchistan.

    Baitullah, the monster, is visibily worried about Drone attacks in tribal area, his people are dying almost daily, finding no way out to oppose these attacks he decided to attack the security positions in Pnjab and Islamabad. A series of such suicidal attacks were witnessed live by millions of TV watchers within and outside Pakistan. To the dismay of Baitullah and his followers none of these attacks could bring the desired results, eight attackers at Manawan police training centre could kill only five trainees after losing at least four terrorists (others escaped- one is supposedly  captured by local people and handed over to security agencies. His people could not capture and make hostage the Sri Lankan cricket team.

    Baitullah has prize money of $5million, dead or alive, yet he invites media people from various TV channels to his abode...and he also talks freely on phone all over places. His desire is to gain as much "popularity" as Osama once had....and then die as "martyr"; he knows he has a very short time at his disposal, may be few days or a couple of months- at the most. His elimination will pave the way for death of other mafia bosses in NWFP and tribal area, Mangal Bagh, Fazal ullah, Faqir, etc etc....


    I have a feeling that the captured leaders of JuD will also be handed over to India for trial on Mumbai carnage by the people trained and despatched by them. If our government can do that only once, others like them will take a serious note of that and go in hibernation till such time they are killed in some encounter with security agencies.


    I have the feeling that 2009 will be a decisive year for Pakistan, in case we are able to overpower the extremists, eliminate the terrorists during the next few months we will survive as a viable nation, otherwise....we all know what Western press is predicting about our country...they feel that this country may disintegrate within next few months, and fallen to terrorists who will control the nukes held in this area....they give a very bleak picture of Pakistan....but can we prove them wrong?
