Straight from the heart!
Syeda Qudsiya Mashhadi

Dear readers
Assalam o Alaikum.

Eid Mubarak to Muslims all over the world and Happy Independence Day to all Pakistanis. It is time that Pakistanis become more aware of their standing in the world today; their strategic importance in the region as well as the spiritual significance of the creation of Pakistan. The World has its eyes on Pakistan for various reasons, most of them, not so commendable, and we need to change that. We need to identify the culprits who are responsible for bringing a bad name to Islam in general and Pakistan in particular. We as Pakistanis need to understand the reasons behind this phenomenon. Why Pakistan? One reason is glaringly obvious: Pakistan is the only Muslim Nuclear-powered country in the World and a major threat to the Zionists in the region. Understandably, the believers of Novus Ordo Seclorum find Pakistan standing in the way of their goals. Quaid-e-Azam was amazingly spot on when he had called Pakistan, the Fortress of Islam, because today we see how the hearts of the enemies quiver due to Pakistan and its armed forces, alhamdolillah.

There is a reason why Pakistan is being attacked in every sense by foes from all directions. It is now on the patriotic people of Pakistan to understand the gravity of the situation and educate the rest of the nation about the sinister plotting of enemies within and without. It is time to be pro-active and not reactive due to the fast changing geo-political scenarios in the world. Where the conditions of Syria, Egypt and other oppressed Muslim lands bring tears to our eyes, there we also have the glad tidings with us from great Awliya Allah and seers like Allama Iqbal about the future of Pak Sarzameen:

نکل کے صحرا سے جس نے روما کی سلطنت کو اُلٹ دیا تھا

سنا ہے یہ قدسیوں سے میں نے وہ شیر پھر ہوشیار ہوگا

I hope the time of Urooj of Deen-e-Muhemmedi is near, inshaAllah. Iqbal gives good news about the future to Muslims and warns the West about their materialistic objectives:

ديار مغرب کے رہنے والو! خدا کي بستي دکاں نہيں ہے

کھرا جسے تم سمجھ رہے ہو ، وہ اب زر کم عيار ہو گا

تمھاري تہذيب اپنے خنجر سے آپ ہي خود کشي کرے گي

جوشاخ نازک پہ آشيانہ بنے گا ، ناپائدار ہو گا

May Allah [swt] show us the rise of Islam in Pakistan and the World, soon. Aameen

Stay blessed.
