If we think about it and question it, where does our basic, primary or foundational knowledge come from? To begin with our senses give our brains windows to the outside world. This acts as stimulus for brain to receive information and process and store it and recall it as and when need be. The brain itself needs a lot of training when it comes to learning skills. This is why a baby cannot use his senses right away but takes time by trying to use them till he becomes skilled over a long period of time. Then baby learns to use his body parts eg hands and feet etc etc. He has to learn how to sit up, how to stand and walk and talk etc etc. This is why children are only sent to schools when they have become capable of learning from schools. You do not send them right away to universities to get education. However we sent them to schools hoping one day they will have learned enough to go to universities. Likewise we do not send them out to work because they do not have skills to do that either. So it should be clear that learning takes ages before one could actually employ one's skill for the purpose one has learned them. One day a baby becomes so learned that he can do amazing things ie he can reach the moon. Allah has placed huge potential in mankind to actualise it through learning an doing things. This is how man makes Allah look great. It is because man is his masterpiece ie Allah has created nothing better than man. If we talk rubbish about man, we degrade Allah himself without realising it. This world is created by Allah for mankind and such verses are repeated in the Quran. Allah has given the universe under the control of mankind to do with it as they like just like all the other things that man is using for his purposes eg donkeys, camels, cattle, gold, silver etc etc. However man also has been created for a set purpose and that is long way away yet from being fulfilled by mankind. All this is in the Quran if we could prepare ourselves to read the Quran and understand it properly. People can only understand information to the stage they have developed themselves biologically, psychologically and sociologically etc etc. This is why not only that we cannot understand the Quran till we learn how to do that but nothing else either. Can you build a bike or a car or a house without learning how to do it? No. Likewise all sorts of knowledge needs skills for making sense of it and using it for its purpose. So the divine revelation ie the Quran is not an exception.

This should explain to people why sir syed was right in pushing for aqal based interpretation of the quran and the rest of islamic sources of knowledge. I read his interpretation 50+ years ago and rejected it and due to mullahs' propaganda as we all know it I also did not like what parwez wrote about the quran. However as I grew up mentally I started my own research and exploration and as I went on in time I found what was right way to approach understanding of the quran.

The way to understand the quran is use aqal to make sense of the quran but this aqal has to be aqal needed for understanding the level of information that is found in the quran. You see if you gave the quran in the hands of a baby and told him it is book of God so treat it sensibly. He has no idea and will take it, tear its pages and start putting them in his mouth. So you will end up with a damaged copy of the quran.

What I am saying is that level of information given needs to wait for the recipient to grow up and be able to make sense of it. Otherwise it is like loading a donkey with loads of books and burying it under them.

This is the reason Allah created the world by setting up processes, systems, mechanisms and laws etc etc and gave it time to unfold. As mankind came about from the very same tree of life as other living creatures and learned sense in time only then Allah revealed to them his guidance because by that time one of them was able to make sense of it and teach it to others. In the quranic context there have been more than one aadams. One from which humanity branched off as a new species, the other who became human through learning and received revelation.

The verses in surah baqrah are not about creation of adam but about assigning him some task to bring humanity out of bloodshed by forming a proper human community and thereby bringing about a kingdom based on guidance of Allah.

Word malaaikah here is used for tribal chiefs at the time and word sajdah is used in context of, all of you submit to my program, constitution and law together if you want to get rid of way of life based upon laws of nature. People can either live by laws of nature or by laws given to mankind for overcoming laws of nature.

Laws of nature use mankind and laws given for guidance of mankind by Allah help him use laws of nature and rest of universe to his own advantage. So man has the choice to go by either way he wants.

Take word SHUKR for example, we generally take it to mean thanks. We never think about things to try to understand them for their purpose. For example, Allah has given us brains and senses and bodies and told us the purpose in form of setting for us some goals to achieve. What is purpose of brain? Are we using it for that purpose? What is purpose of our senses? Are we using them for that purpose? What is purposes of our bodies? Are we using them for that purpose? Allah has created this universe for us and we are told about it in the quran repeatedly? Are we at all bothered with finding out what purpose can we use the universe and all that is in it for? Are we therefore really grateful to Allah for all this?

Now make sense of word SHUKR in that context. It means to use provision for the purpose they are provided for by Allah. Now the questions, are we using our brains for the purpose they are given? Is that appreciation of gifts of Allah or not? Can we really appreciate gifts of Allah by misusing them?

Now see the implications of this ie we are saying by our mouths thanks Allah but we are at the same time misusing things he gave us. Are we then not lying to ourselves and Allah?

More than that are we studying the quran for what it is given for to us as a gift. Is this gift least of gifts or most of them?

So time for us all to put our thinking caps on and show that we are human beings not animals. In the quran we read such verses which tell us we are born ignorant but with brains and senses, why? See 7/179, 16/78, 22/46, 23/78 etc. It is because we are supposed to learn through direct experiences in time. What does that tell us? That Allah has set up things to evolve from a simple state of existence to most sophisticated they can be. A clear proof that evolution is a fact. Not only that but Allah also condemns those people as animals who do not use their brains and senses to learn things they are supposed to learn by using them. Again a clear proof that revelation is not the basis for human learning but just a guidance once people have learned enough to make sense of it.

Both the quran and real world realities agree perfectly that basis for human knowledge is sense of making sense of things. Revelation is secondary to aqal. This is why Allah appeals to sensible people among mankind repeatedly for judging the truth about the quran and not to stupid people who are at the level of animals in their thinking level.

Have mankind bothered to understand the Quran properly?

November 04, 2012

YANGON: Aung San Suu Kyi has declined to speak out on behalf of Rohingya Muslims and insisted she will not use "moral leadership" to back either side in deadly communal unrest in west Myanmar, reports said.

The Nobel laureate, who has caused disappointment among international supporters for her muted response to violence that has swept Rakhine state, said both Buddhist and Muslim communities were "displeased" that she had not taken their side.

More than 100,000 people have been displaced since June in two major outbreaks of violence in the state, where renewed clashes last month uprooted about 30,000 people. Dozens have been killed on both sides and thousands of homes torched.

"I am urging tolerance but I do not think one should use one's moral leadership, if you want to call it that, to promote a particular cause without really looking at the sources of the problems," Suu Kyi told the BBC on Saturday.

Speaking in the capital Naypyidaw after talks with European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, who has said the EU is "deeply concerned" about the violence and its consequences for Myanmar's reforms, Suu Kyi said she could not speak out in favour of the stateless Rohingya. "I know that people want me to take one side or the other, so both sides are displeased because I will not take a stand with them," she said.

The democracy champion, who is now a member of parliament after dramatic changes overseen by a quasi-civilian regime that took power last year, said the rule of law should be established as a first step before looking into other problems. "Because if people are killing one another and setting fire to one another's houses, how are we going to come to any kind of reasonable settlement?" she said.

Myanmar's 800,000 Rohingya are seen by the government and many in the country as illegal immigrants from neighbouring Bangladesh. They face severe discrimination that activists say has led to a deepening alienation. The Rohingya, who make up the vast majority of those displaced in the fighting, are described by the UN as among the world's most persecuted minorities

The 'Seven Blunders of the World' is a list Mahatma Gandhi gave to his grandson Arun.

It was written on a piece of paper, on their final day together, not too long before his assassination.

In his final years, the elder Gandhi kept his grandson close at hand and set aside an hour every day to be alone with the boy...

Meanwhile we are now facing the unpredictable consequences of the latest version of the 9/11 hoax, namely the Innocence of Muslims video , the killings in Benghazi and the subsequent riots throughout the Muslim world, etc. One thing must be said for the west: they are brazen liars and never give up even when confronted with irrefutable proof.

Dashrath did not want anyone else to suffer the same fate as his wife, so he single-handedly carved a 360-foot-long (110 m), 25-foot-high (7.6 m) and 30-foot-wide (9.1 m) road by cutting a mountain of Gehlour hills, working day and night for 22 years from 1960 to 1982. His feat reduced the distance between Atri and Wazirganj blocks of Gaya district from 75 km to just one km, bringing him international acclaim.

But from the little I managed to pick up, our unlikely hero with the great name of Despereaux Tilling, the little mouse with the big ears unable either to cower or to scurry, is an admirable character whom many of us would do well to emulate. Overcoming fear is a very difficult task. To be born naturally fearless is a lordly gift indeed. And then I specially liked his introduction to the library by his brother where, contrary to instructions, he promptly understood that books were meant to be read, not mutilated through gnawing at them. I can well understand why you felt drawn to Despereau, Life. Feel the same way myself now that I've made his acquaintance.

Asna Ali
Thursday, August 23, 2012


Before social media became such a pervasive presence in our internet lives online browsing was – for the most part – an anonymous experience.

Users were wary of giving out their personal information and it was recommended by most online security experts that even email addresses or instant messenger accounts should not contain one’s real name or other identifiers.
The internet was populated by nameless and faceless entities that hid behind their computer screens and used their online time to indulge in activities and interests considered too risqué or strange for their real lives.

Interest groups, message boards and blogs contained no holds barred discussions with commenter’s spewing bigoted, racist or otherwise inappropriate points of view without any fear of recrimination beyond having their grammar corrected by someone.

Fast forward to 2012 and our digital lives have gone through a 180 degree change. Facebook, Twitter and many other social media websites have turned their users into mini celebrities who take great pleasure in documenting and broadcasting every tiny titbit of their lives for the voyeuristic delight of their ‘friends’ and ‘followers’. The idea of not revealing one’s identity online now seems as foreign as it was the norm in the past.

Unfortunately, the associated concept that the computer screen creates some sort of barrier between the real and digital world has not been let go of.

While many people are willing to pour their hearts and souls out on social media, they are unable to grasp that doing this can have potentially dangerous consequences.

Ask anyone if they would give a detailed play-by-play account of their day to a complete stranger or hand out private pictures to people on the street and the answer will most probably be in the negative; but this concern for safeguarding privacy seems to have evaporated from our internet behaviour.

As online sharing becomes easier, more and more people seem to be caving in to peer pressure or some internal desire to lift the veil from their lives and accumulate as many ‘likes’ as possible for their witty thoughts, heavily edited profile pictures and internet memes.

However, for many individuals, their penchant for inviting the world into their private lives has had negative consequences. Celebrities whose nude pictures have been leaked from under protected email accounts and teachers who have been fired for posting pictures of themselves getting drunk at parties are just some of the victims of over exposure and over sharing.

Despite claims to the contrary, the privacy policies of search engines and social networking websites are shoddy and prone to changes without the consent of their users.

Once content gets posted online, it is outside the control of its creator and taking it down is next to impossible. Even if you delete it, there is no way of knowing if it has been saved by your ISP, a website’s server or by someone else who has seen it.

Social media has enriched our digital lives in a number of ways but it is time to develop a more realistic and responsible approach to using it. It is unwise to assume that online information sharing is a one way street, that somehow what we do and say online cannot come back to haunt us.

The internet may appear to be a black hole down which millions of people can safely dump the details of their lives but it is a black hole that has the potential to regurgitate their secrets.

It seems to be an absurd idea, until it happens and you wake up to find yourself fired, arrested or worse still, the butt of a hilarious meme.
