“Say: O My slaves who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily, Allah forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”
Fatima Jinnah (1893-1967) is known as “Mother of the Nation”
in Pakistan, and is remembered and honoured as one of the leading founders of
the country. Her engagement in politics, her extensive support of civil rights
and her philanthropy all offer her an important place in Pakistani culture and
In 1947 she founded
the Women’s Relief Committee, which later became the All Pakistan Women’s
Association. In 1965 she contested the elections and ran against the
dictatorial, self-proclaimed president of Pakistan at the time, receiving
widespread support and praise from the people. Although she won the vote, Ayub
Khan was once again proclaimed President through vote rigging. Still, the
campaign proved that a woman could easily run for political office and gain the
public’s sympathy even in a Muslim country such as Pakistan.
In Islam, modesty should be equally applied to both men and women. This is not the case in Iran.
The “morality police,” or religious police, have been enforcing strict religious dress codes on women ever since the end of the Iranian Revolution in 1979. Iranian women are required to wear the hijab, or headscarf, or be subjected to fines or imprisonment — and now men in Iran are standing up to say that this is enough.
Di tvOne, siapapun mereka yang berpotensi tampil di televisi, punya bakat jurnalisme, tangguh dalam liputan, dan siap menjadi jurnalis handal, dapat mengembangkan karirnya tanpa halangan apapun. Tak ada diskriminasi apalagi pelarangan terhadap pelaksanaan keyakinan agama seperti penggunaan jilbab. Alhamdulillah, ini dibuktikan langsung oleh tvOne dan kita bisa menjadi saksi bersama. Sebab memang tvOne melihat bukan apa yang ada di kepala, tapi apa yang ada di dalamnya.
Alhamdulillah, di tvOne bagi karyawannya yang perempuan makin banyak yang berhijab. Masjidnya terus ramai. Dekat sama yatim dan ulama. Banyak kru mereka yang suka ke masjid, bahkan yang kita lihat di program tertentu sebagai host, yang mungkin tak tersirat ke pikiran kita bahwa dia seringkali bermunajat sendirian di masjid. Saya berbangga pernah menjadi bagian dari keluarga besar channel tv yang nama “one” terinspirasi dari “ahad” di surat Qulhu ini.
The first thing that Shaytan (Satan) will try to do is get you to stop praying. You know why? Because he has to kill the guard if he wants to penetrate the castle. Once the guard is gone, then Shaytan (Satan) can open the floodgates for evil. And he has a lot of patience. He has done this to many people before so he’s experienced as well.
You made a statement concerning me, my children and millions of Muslims in America. This is my response.
“If you’re a Muslim and you love America and freedom and you hate terror, stay here and help us win and make a future together. We want you.”
Yes, I am a Muslim, but I don’t love the America you stand for and represent, but an America that is both peaceful and inclusive. When that America exists, I will be the first to die for it. (I know you won’t)
Yes, I love freedom, too, but not your freedom to violate international law, to wage war at will, to further increase the income disparity between rich and poor, to violate the sanctity of an elected office and to wreak havoc upon an already devastated world. Considering how many Muslims lost their lives because of policies you have espoused throughout the years, the freedom you speak of has been my very captivity, even demise.
Yes, I hate terror, including the terror that you and your wife inflicted upon the world: your ‘clean war’ in Kosovo, your Operation Desert Fox in Iraq and her war on Libya and coup in Honduras; let alone the terror committed by your friends in Israel, by dictatorial Arab rulers and your other brutal allies everywhere.
If I stay I have no intentions of helping you (or your wife) build a future for the rich and powerful at the expense of the poor and abandoned, but demolish your own doing of a past and present rife with bloodletting abroad and inequality at home.
However, If I leave, on my own accord, mind you, I will seek a world that doesn’t condition my being on underhanded ultimatums and blind loyalty to a system so corrupt that is willingly destroying itself for the sake of money and the fleeting illusion of ‘power.’
‘We want you’, along with your wife, to stand a trial for crimes against humanity, remorselessly committed during your presidency and her term in office as Secretary of State.
