Politics Vs Policy

1. Politics has no rules, policy is a set of rules set forth for the political animal or the social animal to follow.
2. In Politics the powerful always gets to win, policy defines the winner's right to power.
3. Politics has no reason for rules, policy defines reasons for rules.
4. Politics is dirty, policy cleans the dirt.
5. Politics has no feelings for human suffering, policy elevates human suffering.
6. Politics is a game for the wealthy, policy is its rule for the under-previledged.
7. Politics needs no education, policy is based on education.
8. Politics needs no experiance, policy is nurtured by experiance.
9. Politics is the science of greed, policy is the art of content.
10. Politics breeds on ego, policy survives on humbleness.

The list is endless and you may add to it if you wish. The comment section is open for more. I define politics as a tool to fullfil the immediate materialistic desire, while policy as siyasat elahiyah meant to nourish the soul and the human spirit and never to undermine its needs. Well said by Allama Iqbal "masjide marsya kh'wan reh gaye namazi na rahe; ya'ni woh sahebe awsaafe hijazi na rahe"

Burqa Vs. Bikini

The Debauchery Of American Womanhood

By Henry Makow, Ph.D.

On my wall, I have a picture of a Muslim woman shrouded in a burka. Beside it is a picture of an American beauty contestant, wearing nothing but a bikini.

One woman is totally hidden from the public; the other is totally exposed. These two extremes say a great deal about the clash of so-called "civilizations."

The role of woman is at the heart of any culture. Apart from stealing Arab oil, the impending war in the Middle East is about stripping Arabs of their religion and culture, exchanging the burka for a bikini.

I am not an expert on the condition of Muslim women and I love feminine beauty too much to advocate the burka here. But I am defending some of the values that the burka represents for me.

For me, the burka represents a woman's consecration to her husband and family. Only they see her. It affirms the privacy, exclusivity and importance of the domestic sphere.

The Muslim woman's focus is her home, the "nest" where her children are born and reared. She is the "home" maker, the taproot that sustains the spiritual life of the family, nurturing and training her children, providing refuge and support to her husband.

In contrast, the bikinied American beauty queen struts practically naked in front of millions on TV. A feminist, she belongs to herself. In practice, paradoxically, she is public property. She belongs to no one and everyone. She shops her body to the highest bidder. She is auctioning herself all of the time.

In America, the cultural measure of a woman's value is her sex appeal. (As this asset depreciates quickly, she is neurotically obsessed with appearance and plagued by weight problems.)

As an adolescent, her role model is Britney Spears, a singer whose act approximates a strip tease. From Britney, she learns that she will be loved only if she gives sex. Thus, she learns to "hook up" rather than to demand patient courtship and true love. As a result, dozens of males know her before her husband does. She loses her innocence, which is a part of her charm. She becomes hardened and calculating. Unable to love, she is unfit to receive her husband's seed.

The feminine personality is founded on the emotional relationship between mother and baby. It is based on nurturing and self-sacrifice. Masculine nature is founded on the relationship between hunter and prey. It is based on aggression and reason.

Feminism teaches woman that feminine nature has resulted in "oppression" and that she should convert to male behavior instead. The result: a confused and aggressive woman with a large chip on her shoulder, unfit to become a wife or mother.

This, of course, is the goal of the social engineers at the NWO: undermine sexual identity and destroy the family, create social and personal dysfunction, and reduce population. In the "brave new world," women are not supposed to be "nest" makers, or progenitors of the race. They are meant to be neutered autonomous creatures that indulge in sex for physical pleasure, not for love or procreation.

At his press conference on Sunday, Donald Rumsfeld said that Iranian women and youth were restive under the rule of the Mullahs. He implied that the US would soon liberate them. To Britney Spears? To low-rise "see-my-thong" pants? To the mutual masturbation that passes for sexuality in America?

Parenthood is the pinnacle of human development. It is the stage when we finally graduate from self-indulgence and become God's surrogates: creating and nurturing new life. The New World Order does not want us to reach this level of maturity. Pornography is the substitute for marriage. We are to remain stunted: single, sex-starved and self-obsessed.

We are not meant to have a permanent "private" life. We are to remain lonely and isolated, dependent on consumer products for our identity, in a state of perpetual courtship.

This is especially destructive for woman. Her sexual attraction is a function of her fertility. As fertility declines, so does her sex appeal. If a woman devotes her prime years to becoming "independent," she is not likely to find a permanent mate. Her long-term personal fulfillment and happiness lies in making marriage and family her first priority.

Feminism is another cruel New World Order hoax that has debauched American women and despoiled Western civilization. It has ruined millions of lives and represents a lethal threat to Islam.

I am not advocating the burka but rather some of the values that it represents, specifically a woman's consecration to her future husband and family, and the modesty and dignity this entails.

Yesterday and Today: A Fatemi Perspective

“History repeats itself”, is a quote well known to millions around the world and there are many scholars who quote it randomly in their daily conversations. Although famous and known, the truth is rarely experienced even by the most profound students of history apart from the professors.

Mumineen on the contrary are so habituated to experiencing this fact that they rarely consider that there is something scholarly about this saying. The reason behind this is that every era, according to the Fatemi philosophy of history, evolves around one ideal and perfect being chosen by Allah to lead all his creation to their destiny. The Imam (AS) is the center peg of the entire cycle of history and time. In other words it is the Imam (AS) who is the center peg of all creation. Syedna Taher Saifuddin (RA) describing the eternity of the Imam (AS) says in a verse that: "The person of the Imam changes while he (the Imam’s position) is the same. The one immortal and eternal being."

The above verse does not state that the Imam (AS) does not pass away from this materialistic world which is merely a transitory phase of life; rather it means that the succeeding Imam is no different from the former Imam (AS) in any manner.

To elaborate the above verse, it would be very simple if an example from history would be quoted. A well known fact that in jihad is that Molana Ali (AS) did not allow the captivation and enslaving of the women and children of the rival Muslim armies. This has become a sunnat while fighting Muslim opponents who have opposed the Islamic state and its laws, while no narration has been cited from Rasulallah (SA) in this regard. The fact that the decision of Amirul Mumineen (AS) is the decision of Rasulallah (SA) can be known from here. Rasulallah (SA) would have given the same verdict if he would have been in place of Maulana Ali (AS at that particular moment of time. A Hadith of the Prophet would further elaborate the above incident. Rasulallah (SA) says: علي كنفسي, Ali is same as my self.

Further more, the acts and judgments of Duat Kiram today are rightious as per the wahye and the Qu'ran. Had Rasulallah (SA) been present today, his acts would have not differed from what we see today in the divine being of al-Dail Ajal Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (TUS).

The mere rational reason behind this is that the people of all times are entitled to the same barakaat and anwaar, an equal share of Rehmatun Lil Alameen as were the Mumineen of Rasulallah’s (SA) era. This is in accordance to the justice and adl of Allah Subhanahu.

Mumineen of the Burhani Daur have witnessed several events of the past, history repeating. Knowing that our Maula (TUS) Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (TUS) whom we see today, is the reservoir of the divine light and the divine ilm that Allah has sent down to earth with the creation of his hands, Adam (AS).

Looking down in history, from the very birth of our Maula (TUS) barakaat has flowed in multitude among the offspring of Dawat as stated by Syedna al-Muqaddas Syedna Taher Saifuddin (RA). The same way that Rasulallah (SA) and Molana Ali (AS) blessed an era, both Molana Taher Saifuddin (RA) and Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (TUS) have showered the bounties of paradise on Mumineen. The days of both Maulana Taher Saifuddin (RA) and his Mansus reflect the past era of Rasulallah (SA). Many instances of history have been repeated and are know to those who have insight rather then mere eyes to look.

The day of coronation of Syedna Taher Saifuddin (RA) was the day when Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (TUS) was born. Turn it around and the birth of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (TUS) brought in the auspices of heaven to the house of Molanal Muqaddas (RA) as was revealed by Syedna Taher Saifuddin (RA). There are many incidences of the Saifiyah Burhaniyah era which resemble those of the days of Rasulallah (SA) and Molana Ali (AS). Those with insight can feel the anwaar of the past Awliyaullah and witness it while looking at our beloved Maula Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (TUS).
May Allah bless him with a long life in the pink of health and ever glowing youth. Ameen
