AOA and thankyou Abby it's your 'greatness'. It seems as if there is some invisible , incomprehensible PULL in kalaam e Illahi. When we rely on it with open heart it seems to become see through and transparent. But something that 'clicks' one mind may not click others.So I think we must keep on discussing issues, as if we stop without satisfying our hearts ,it will harden our hearts and we will become either prejudice or will remain jaahil.
57:16 Is it not yet time for the believers that their hearts humble at the remembrance of God, reflecting on the Truth that has been revealed?

The ONLY BOOK brought the most remarkable revolution of the WORLD HISTORY ..voh bhee..in the LIFE SPAN of a single person,PROPHET MUHAMMAD (saw)..!Can't you see deviating from the TRUE KNOWLEDGE has not only burdened the whole ummat e Muslima but also have REVERSED the moral condition of many ARABIAN DECENDANTS whom we lokk for PERFECTION but whose hearts have left all the humbleness and have become PREJUDICED because of this misunderstanding that probably they OWN THE BOOK or the LANGUAGE or I might say PERFECTION?
Our societies are swarming with WRONG PRACTICES in the name of Allah and Rasool . Praying five times is NOT changing many spiritually , a bit, why? We know the reason, but were over looking!
We all are hurting ourselves and others only with weapons and tongues!
