THE BEST TO PROTECT AND THE BEST OF PLANNERS AND ENOUGH IS ALLAH AS A DISPOSER OF AFFAIRS.

THE BEST TO PROTECT AND THE BEST OF PLANNERS AND ENOUGH IS ALLAH AS A DISPOSER OF AFFAIRS.
8:30 - Remember how the unbelievers plotted against thee to keep thee in bonds or slay thee or get thee out (of thy home).  They plot and plan and Allah too plans but the best of planners is Allah. 1203
8:40 - If they refuse be sure that Allah is your protector the best to protect and the best to help.
3:54 - And (then unbelievers) plotted and planned and Allah too planned and the best of planners is Allah. 393
393   The Arabic Makara has both a bad and a good meaning, that of making an intricate plan to carry out some secret purpose. The enemies of Allah are constantly doing that. But Allah-in whose hands is all good-has His plans also, against which the evil ones will have no chance whatever. (3.54)
33:3 - And put thy trust in Allah and enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs. 3668
33:48 - And obey not (the behests) of the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites and heed not their annoyances but put thy trust in Allah for enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs. 3737
30:50 - Then contemplate (O man!) the memorials of Allah's Mercy!

About  Turkey

ATATURK (Mustafa Kamal)
November 10, 1938. (Istanbul) Founder of the modern republic of Turkey.  His original name was Mustafa Kemal, and the honorary7title “Ataturk” was bestowed upon him as late as 1934, by the Grand National Assembly, and means “Father of the Turks”.
Ataturk’s achievements were many, but most were formed after clear Western ideals.  Ataturk meant that the traditional way of running Muslim countries had outlived itself, and that Turkey’s chances of surviving the future as well as gaining new strength would only be through adopting principles from the European countries, which at that time had outdistanced Turkey in all fields.  Imposing regulations that hindered the use of central elements in the Oriental clothing style, introduction of Latin alphabet.  The other victim of Ataturk was the traditional way; of governing Islam.  Islam seized to be the state religion, and the Caliphate was abolished, an institution of great symbolic importance for many Muslims inside the outside the former Ottoman Empire.

AFTER 50 YEARS


TURKEY

Although intellectual debate on the role of Islam attracted widespread interest, they did not provoke the kind of controversy; that erupted over the issue of appropriate attire for Muslim women.  During the early 1980’s female college students who were determined to demonstrate their commitment to Islam began to cover their heads and necks with large scarves and wear long, shape-concealing overcoats.  The appearance of these women in the citadels of Turkish secularism shocked those men and women who tended to perceive such attire as a symbol of the Islamic traditionalism they rejected.  Militant secularists persuaded the Higher Education  Council to issue  a regulation in 1987 forbidding female university students to cover their heads in class.  Protests by thousands of religious students and some university professors forced several universities to waive enforcement of the dress code.  The issue continued to be seriously divisive in the mid-1990’s.  Throughout the first half of the 1990s, highly educated, articulate, but religiously pious women have appeared in public dressed in Islamic attire that conceals all but  their faces and hands.  Other women, especially in Ankara, Istanbul, land Izmir, have demonstrated against such attire by wearing revealing fashions and Ataturk badges.  The issue is discussed and debated in almost every type of forum-artistic, commercial, cultural, economic, political and religious.  For many citizens of Turkey, women’s dress has become the issue – at least for the 1990s – that defines whether a Muslim is secularist or religious.

Turkey is put on alert amid warnings of a second earthquake as hopes fade of finding many more survivors from Tuesday’s devastating quake.
Former Prim e Minister Necmettin Erbakan, the Islamist leader who was pressured out of office by the military in 1997 for violating the country’s secular principles, called the quake a “Divine Warning”.
ANY  ATATURKS  AMONG  US?
31:6 - But there are among men those who purchase idle tales without knowledge (or meaning) to mislead (men) from the Path of Allah and throw ridicule (on the Path): for such there will be a humiliating Penalty. 3584
3584  Life is taken seriously by men who realize the issues that hang upon it. But there are men of a frivolous turn of mind who prefer idle tales to true Realities and they are justly rebuked here. In the time of the holy Prophet there was a pagan Nadhr ibn al-Harith who preferred Persian romances to the Message of Allah, and turned away ignorant men from the preaching of Allah's Word. (31.6)
Those who mislead – whose efforts have been wasted in this life ( 18:104- 31:6 )
They are those who Distort, Dispute, Divide, Hinder, Mislead, Sell the religion, Imitators, Deaf & Dumb, & Blind, and cannot see or understand, Refuse the Truth, Refuse to Believe, The Arrogance, the Hypocrites, the Ignorance, the Mischievous Ones, those Forming Sects and Divisions.  THEY ARE THE ARMY OF THE SATAN – THE PERSISTENT REBEL !!


WHAT ARE THEY DISTORTING

1.       Recital of Salawat before Azan in Mosques contrary to Hadhis
2.       Jummah Prayers- not confirming to authentic Hadhis, viz: praying Salatul Jummah after the 1st Azan, Long Khutbas (instead of short) and wasting time – misleading the congregation on irrelevant subjects; making Prayers short – (instead of long) and devoting more time in collecting donations in tills and buckets as in begging for the mosques, etc.,
3.       Janaza – burial delays due to various recitals – halara, dikr, Quran recitals, etc.,
4.       Paying to Homage to Saints –m as partners, patrols, protectors, intercessors, helpers, equals, with Allah.
5.       Birthday celebrations of the Prophet (Sal)  and recitals of Mowloods and Kaththams,
6.       Hijab or Niqab or devoid of them,
7.       Haram and Halal – ignored in many respects’
8.       Sunnah or Farlu (Obligatory) not adhered to;
9.       Iddah for 4 months and 10 days or 40 days!
10.    Treat innovations as permissible,
11.    Hadith – authentic or weak, not concerned
12.    Community – a bunch of spendthrifts in weddings etc., for prestige, not fearing Allah,
13.    They join in worship others with Allah – false worship – even though this is indeed the highest wrongdoing etc.
14.    Birthday celebrations of Muslim leaders and prominent people invoking blessings from Muslims and non-Muslims and their deities in their Temples!

15.    They are forming various sects – all the 73 sects said in the Hadhis are there.!
16.    To Bestow Honour – they are covering with Silk/Silver/Woolen and Gold BROCADES, contrary to Hadhis,
17.    Crazy for palatial buildings and luxury limousines.  Ignore good neighbourliness and giving Salam to one another,
18.    Arrogance and superiority complex in their dealings with men, etc.,
Who  are  they?
Some of those holding positions in mosques, associations and organizations; some of those so called politicians and their cronies; some of those so called religious leaders imported from other countries and our (unqualified) Moulavis turned out from Mushroom Madrasas – immersed in Shirk; some of the so called educationalists displaying their ignorance in publishing articles trying to exert their private view points irrespective of Sunnah; and the Quran, all contributing towards Misleading and depriving the innocent Muslims of Allah’s  Blessings and driving them instead to Sin land Anarchy.  Wholesale Disputes in everything we do, in short from the birth to the grave, we are in dispute.  What a sad plight these men have dragged us into!  They will continue to do so and throw away the authentic Hadhis and the Quranic injunctions and stick to only what their fathers did whether it is right or wrong.

5:104 - When it is said to them: "Come to what Allah hath revealed; come to the Apostle": they say: "Enough for us are the ways we found our fathers following."  What! even though their fathers were void of knowledge and guidance? 810
18:103 - Say: "Shall we tell you of those who lose most in respect of their deeds? 2448
2448  That is, those who prided themselves on their works in this life, and now find that those works are of no avail. Their loss is all the greater because they had a misplaced confidence in their own deeds or in the assistance of false "protectors". Allah is the only Protector: no one else's protection is of any use. (18.103)
18:104 - "Those whose efforts have been wasted in this life while they thought that they were acquiring good by their works?" 2449
2449  Many people have such a smug sense of self-righteousness that while they go on doing wrong, they think that they are acquiring merit. So, in charity, all the elements that make for outward show or selfishness (as to get some worldly advantage) nullify the deed of charity. In the same way hypocrites sometimes affect to be surprised that their declared effort for somebody’s good is not appreciated, when they are really seeking some hidden gain or false glory for themselves. The sincere are only those who believe in their spiritual responsibility and act as in Allah’s sight. (18.104)
18:105 - They are those who deny the Signs of their Lord and the fact of their having to meet Him (in the Hereafter): vain will be their works nor shall We on the Day of Judgment give them any Weight. 2450
2450  What weight can be attached to works behind which the motives are not pure, or are positively evil? They are either wasted or count against those who seek to pass them off as meritorious! (18.105)
18:106 - That is their reward Hell; because they rejected Faith and took My Signs and My Messengers by way of jest. 2451
2451  False motives, pretence, deception, and hypocrisy, flourish because people do not take the higher life seriously. In effect they treat it as a jest. Signs and Messengers are sent as a special and personal Mercy from Allah, and for such things the first person singular is used as in this verse, even when it involves a sudden transition from the first person plural as in the last verse. (18.106)
18:107 - As to those who believe and work righteous deeds they have for their entertainment the Gardens of Paradise 2452
3:175 - It is only the Evil One that suggests to you the fear of his votaries: be ye not afraid of them but fear Me if ye have faith.

LISTEN  &  FOLLOW: : PROPHET MOHAMED’S (SAL) LAST SERMON

O People, no prophet or apostle will come after me and no new faith will be born. Reason well, therefore, O People, and understand my words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the Qur'an and my example, the Sunnah and if you follow these you will never go astray.
33:70 - O ye who believe! fear Allah and (always) say a word directed to the Right: 3775
3775  We must not only speak the truth as far as we know it, but we must always try to hit the right point; i.e., we must not speak unseasonably, and when we do speak, we must not beat about the bush, but go straight to that which is right, in deed as well as in word. Then Allah will make our conduct right and cure any defects that there may be in our knowledge and character. With our endeavor directed straight to the goal, we shall be forgiven our errors, shortcomings, faults, and sins of the past. (33.70)
33:71 - That He may make your conduct whole and sound and forgive you your sins: he that obeys Allah and His Apostle has already attained the highest Achievement. 3776
3776 This is salvation, the attainment of our real spiritual desire or ambition, as we are on the highway to nearness to Allah. (33.71)
NOTE: No Need to harbor any fears from any sources as long as we strengthen our Taqwa and do righteous deeds without misleading the masses. Then Allah guarantees us His Protection and Wise Planning.
33:35 - For Muslim men and women for believing men and women for devout men and women for true men and women for men and women who are patient and constant for men and women who humble themselves for men and women who give in charity for men and women who fast (and deny themselves) for men and women who guard their chastity and for men and women who engage much in Allah's praise for them has Allah prepared forgiveness and great reward. 3718 3719 3720
3720 The virtues referred to are: (1) Faith, hope, and trust in Allah, and in His benevolent government of the world; (2) devotion and service in practical life; (3) love and practice of truth, in thought and intention, word and deed; (4) patience and constancy, in suffering and in right endeavor; (5) humility, the avoidance of an attitude of arrogance and superiority; (6) charity, i.e., help to the poor and unfortunate ones in life, a special virtue arising out of the general duty of service (No. 2); (7) self-control, typically in food, but generally in all appetites; (8) chastity, purity in sex life, purity in motive, thought, word, and deed; and (9) constant attention to Allah's Message, and cultivation of the desire to get nearer to Allah. (33.35)
68:44 - Then leave Me alone with such as reject this message: by degrees shall We punish them from directions they perceive not. 5625 5626
33:60 - Truly if the Hypocrites and those in whose hearts is a disease and those who stir up sedition in the City desist not We shall certainly stir thee up against them: then will they not be able to stay in it as thy neighbors for any length of time: 3768
33:61 - They shall have a curse on them: wherever they are found they shall be seized and slain (without mercy). 3769
3769    They will be deprived of the blessing and guidance of Allah. They sought to cause disorder in Allah's world-moral as well as material; but they will themselves be destroyed. Those who become outlaws, rebels against the Law, will themselves be destroyed by the Law. (33.61)
10:62 - Behold! verily on the friends of Allah there is no fear nor shall they grieve; 1451
33:36 - It is not fitting for a Believer man or woman when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Apostle to have any option about their decision: if anyone disobeys Allah and His Apostle he is indeed on a clearly wrong Path. 3721
MAY ALLAH GUIDE US ON THE STRAIGHT PATH
