O' Egyptians! Remain Steadfast, Freedom is Priceless


وَالۡفِتۡنَةُ اَکۡبَرُ مِنَ الۡقَتۡلِ‌ 
"... tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter.."[Qur'an;2:217]
ۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّىٰ يُغَيِّرُوا۟ مَا بِأَنفُسِهِمْ “.
“..Allah never changes the condition of a people until they intend to change it themselves…”[Qur’an;13:11]
"God would never change blessings which He has graced a people unless they change their inner selves.."[8:53]
 ”قَالَ رَبِّ انْصُرۡنِىۡ عَلَى الۡقَوۡمِ الۡمُفۡسِدِيۡنَ 
“My Lord, aid me against these mischievous people.(29:30)


Narrated AbuSa'id al-Khudri:The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: The best fighting (jihad) in the path of Allah is (to speak) a word of  justice to an oppressive ruler. [Sunnah Abu Dawud#2040]



Comments: 
Its up to Egyptians as to which type of government or leadership they like to choose. No one should be afraid of Islam, people love it because it provides, quality, justice and fairness for all. Comparing Iranian Shi'a Revolution with Sunni Islam is a folly. Mainstream Sunni Islam does not follow the doctrine of Imamate [combined religious, spiritual and political leadership, some what similar to the Popes of old] which is peculiar to Shi'a Islam. 
Sunnis believe in Caliphate [represented the political unity, not necessarily the theological unity of Muslims in one person]. Sunni Islam dictates that the head of state, the caliph, should be selected by Shura – elected by Muslims or their representatives. Followers of Shia Islam believe the caliph should be an imam descended in a line from the Ahl al-Bayt, which Khomeni modified to Fiqh-Valayat [Guardianship of the Jurist or Providence of the Jurist (Arabicولاية الفقيهPersianولایت فقیهUrduولایت فقیهWilayat al Faqih].Hence Sunni Islam is more democratic domination of theocracy as in Iran is neither feasible nor possible. In the 1400 years of history of Islam, never ever the theologians ruled, the 'Four Rightly Guided Caliphs' were the special companions of Prophet [pbuh], however the theologians like Abdullah bin Umar, Abdullah bin Massud, Abu Hurairah and later Imam Abu Hanifa, Hambal, Shafia, Malik, Ghazaali etc remained committed in their original work. The advised the rulers and guided the people on Islamic matters. The Taliban rule in Afghanistan is an other distortion of Islam, they were basically students of Islamic schools, not scholars who joined the struggle for the independence of their country from oppression of foreign forces and local tribal mlatias. Their ruthless application of Shri'a with limited knowledge of Islam though established peace in Afghanistan but represented a distorted primitive image, not shared by majority of Islamic scholars.    
In Pakistan religious Islamists political parties never got enough votes to form their govt, except in NWFP province, their performance was poor and were thrown out in next election . People only look towards them due to anti US sentiments, with the hope of corruption free govt but they prove no different. 
Main issue of Muslims world is to have full control on their resources and way of life. The want to have corruption free good government which should provide security,  justice, economic stability, jobs, fair distribution of wealth, eduction healthcare and social welfare. Unfortunately corrupt dictators cling to power with US/Western support, by exploiting the bogey of "Religious Fanatics (Muslim extremists)"these puppets of West  are hated by people due to corruption and misgovernment. Any one who genuinely wants to help the Muslim world, they should support the dedicated, honest leadership enjoying the real trust of people, any other approach will be counter productive. The issue of extremists should be left to the Muslims themselves, they know well how to deal with them. The foreign interventions provides some legitimacy to the cause of extremists, hence an indirect support to them.  

Clergy in support of Oppressors-Saudi religious head slams uprisings

Saudi Arabia's top Muslim authority has warned that anti-regime uprisings are "chaotic acts'' aimed at tearing apart the Islamic world, a Saudi newspaper reported on Saturday.
"These chaotic acts have come from the enemies of Islam and those who serve them,'' said Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah al-Sheikh, known for his close ties to the Saudi monarchy, quoted by Asharq Al-Awsat.
"Inciting unrest between people and their leaders in these protests is aimed at hitting the nation (Muslim world) at its core and tearing it apart,'' he said in a speech in Riyadh at the weekly prayers.
The mufti, whose country has given refuge to Tunisia's ousted president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, said uprising also triggered "bloodshed'' and "stealing.''
The protests in Egypt and Tunisia _ sparked by poverty and unemployment _ are "hitting'' the economies of Muslim nations "in a plot aimed at turning them into backward countries,'' he said.
In a telephone call with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Saudi King Abdullah last week expressed his support for the embattled president and slammed those "tampering'' with the country's security and stability.
Why Saudi clergy is supporting Western puppets, rulers, so called modernists who have oppressed Muslims. Have they forgotten the teachings of their Ibn Taymiyyah?


Narrated AbuSa'id al-Khudri:The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: The best fighting (jihad) in the path of Allah is (to speak) a word of  justice to an oppressive ruler. [Sunnah Abu Dawud#2040]
Ibn Taymiyyah has been influential on subsequent "fundamentalist" currents of thought in Islam, such as WahhabismSalafism, and the Muslim Brotherhood. Wahhabism is criticized for being a conservative enough view that some may use it to encourage religious terrorism and the extreme formality of Islam.[21]
What has been called Ibn Taymiyyah's "most famous" fatwā[13] was issued against the Mongols (orTatars), in the Mamluk's war. Ibn Taymiyyah declared that jihad upon the Mongols was not only permissible, but obligatory. He based this ruling on the grounds that the Mongols could not be true Muslims despite the fact that they had converted to Sunni Islam because they ruled using 'man-made laws' (their traditional Yassa code) rather than Islamic law or Sharia, and thus were living in a state ofjahiliyyah, or pre-Islamic pagan ignorance.[14][15]
On governance and Islamic history:Ibn Taymiyyah eulogized various Islamic rulers throughout history, notably, Abu Mansur Sabuktigin, the pious 10th century Ghaznavid ruler. Sebük Tigin had grown concerned over the increasing amount of innovation (commonly known as bid‘ah) in the Islamic creed, and he consequently censured those who he believed were promulgating heretical doctrines or beliefs that contravened orthodox Sunniprinciples.[19]
Ibn Taymiyyah duly eulogized the Ghaznavid ruler, stating that: He commanded that Ahlul Bidah be publicly cursed on the minbars, and as a result theJahmiyyahRafida, Hulooliyah, Mu'tazilah, and Qadariyah were all publicly cursed, along with the Asharites.[20]

A historic moment in the Arab world

لحظة تاريخية في العالم العربي
As a democratic revolution led by tech-empowered young people sweeps the Arab world, Wadah Khanfar, Al Jazeera's director-general, shares a profoundly optimistic view of what's happening in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and beyond. In the first talk posted online from the TED 2011 conference in California, Khanfar describes the powerful moment when people realised they could step out of their homes and ask for change. "كما ثورة ديمقراطية بقيادة الشباب التكنولوجيا ذات صلاحيات تجتاح العالم العربي ، وضاح خنفر ، الجزيرة المدير العام والأسهم وجهة نظر متفائلة بشكل كبير ما يحدث في مصر وتونس وليبيا وخارجها. وفي اول حديث له نشر على الانترنت من مؤتمر تيد 2011 في ولاية كاليفورنيا ، خنفر يصف لحظة قوية عند الناس أدركت أنها لا يمكن الخروج من منازلهم ونطلب من أجل التغيير."

Corona & Attitude of Ulema of Pakistan - Point to Ponder

Faith is entirely a personal matter, which cannot be measured or quantified. Anyone who declares to believe in 6 Fundamentals and 5 Pillars of Islam is considered as a Muslim even if he lacks in practice.
 کرونا اور علماء پاکستان کا رویہ - لمحہ فکریہ:پاکستان اس وقت  تک ترقی نہیں کر سکتا  جب تک ہم اس جاہل ، مزہبی انتہا پسند طبقے کی اس زہنیت سےچھٹکارا  نہیں حاصل  کر لیتے جو مساجد ، مذہب کو کنٹرول کرکہ  زیادہ جاہل عوام کو گمراہ  کرتے ہیں۔  اسلام کو ان جہلا کے شکنجے بچایا جانا صروری ہے۔ .....[....]
We find many people looking "more Muslim" than others due to their outlook and activities in display, yet it's not a measuring  tool for their level of faith , which is only known to Allah. However they consider ONLY themselves  to be entitled to  exercise control on religion, which is contested because authenticity of any opinion on religious matter is conditional to the reference and authority from Holy Scripture. 
Allah has not authorized anyone to present their personal opinions …
