Ramzan In Quarantine کراچی
Ramzan In Quarantine
Muslim fraternity all across the globe is blessed with the month of Ramzan once again, but this time, the sprees that muslims used to be amused with, and the hustle-bustle associated with this holy month, seems to be missing somewhere in the sheds of so called heavensent covid-19.
Following this extremely unpleasant pendamic situation, a desperate question arises here that how one can comply with all the Islamic teachings billed as a direct path to the Paradise.
The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said:
"When Ramadan enters, the devils are chained.”
In the backdrop of aforementioned Hadith, the simpliton muslims ( a vast majority ) begin to think that we are chained like Satans in this month of Ramzan in so called lockdown, and that is entirely against the teaching of islam.
They consider this lockdown halts them from their devotion for islam, and from the means of God's proximity, but the facts are other way round.
With regards to prayers and inclination towards the worshipping, Ramzan consists of it's three stages (ashra), and susceptibility of the Muslims in the first stage of the holy month has always been in their full swing with religious fervour. But gradually they begin to forget that remaining two stages are from the same month. In the second and third stage of Ramzan normally most of the so called enthusiasts keeping their emotions apart and get roped in shopping sprees, and intentionally join mixed gathering in bazars being oblivious to the Islamic values.
Given the divine isolation (according to my view point), this month of Ramzan might be quite contrasting from the previous one where we gradually ignored it's sanctity and spiritual features.
Let's catch a glimpse at some prominent features of this wholly Holy month.
1. The Holy Quran
The holy Quran was revealed in this month.
2. The Night of Decree
One night ( qadar ) is better than thousand months.
3. Tarawih ( ritual night prayer )
You enjoy listening to the complete Quran.
4. Atikaaf ( retreat to mosque )
You Stay in the mosque during the last stage of the month.
In my view point these main attributes of the blessing month can easily be accomplished more religiously, more spiritually, and most all more ethically in the isolated life of lockdown and shutter down. We have a good opportunity to affiliate ourselves to the holy book, the book of wisdom, and the book of ultimate solution to the humanity.
In point of fact, we are to capture the (Laylatul-Qadr) in the last ten days of Ramzan due to no clear sign from the God, so we become oblivious to capturing this blessing night in a so called unintentional manner in our shopping extravaganzas and business activities. We have another chance to capture another feature of the holy month.
As far as the tarawih is concerned, this non-obligatory congregational praying can be performed with the exquisiteness of togetherness with the your organic family.
This sacred togetherness may bring about a beautiful chang to nurture a positive environment for the future ahead.
Since the life has been already unsocial so we have a good opportunity to meditate as per Islamic teaching while keeping ourselves all alone, ensconced in the the God's mercy, safe and secure.
I would like to conclude this piece of writing with humility towards God that taking precautionary measures is not against the reliance on God, or rather it is extremely as per Islamic doctrine. Islam is not just a religion it is a complete code of life ( دین ).
أَعُوذُ بِكَلِمَاتِ اللَّهِ التَّامَّاتِ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا خَلَقَ
"I seek refuge in the perfect words of Allah from the evil of that which He has created."

Islam of Islamabad
The rift amoung the people of Pakistan keeping the role of Tariq Jameel, an influential Islamic scholar, ahead is in it's penical these days.
Keeping his double standards to the front, one specially youth from the so called screen agers can put his personality under the limelight of their memes.
Molana is one of those who enjoys in leading his life in a honeymoon period either be it is democratic government or be it is dictatorial rule, molana always enjoys his sanctity in view of rulers through the Goggles of incumbent powers.
Just because he is sacred heavensent religious figure, one
can't accuse him of being prejudice overtly and candidly.
But the way he is heading chair in the private meetings as well as official one and the way he is invited by many famous influential figures and authoritarian elite class, some stains may be oberseved on his demur white dress.
Let's take a look at some, historically non-controversial, people who are always close to the everyone's heart.
Imam Abu Hanifa ( R.A )
He was poisoned due to the fact that he denyed to resort any portfolio from the incumbent government of that time's.
Imam Nisaaie ( R. A )
He was martyred due to the fact that he denyed from writing an eulogy in his book as per government's wish.
Nizam ud din Oliya ( R. A )
He had two gates in his khankaah ( a building where Sufism is taught and practiced ) for which he often said, " If an emperor enters through one gate, I will be out through the other gate".
These are all the set example from the chosen one, from the sacred one that how they remained away from the doors of emperors.
Now it is all up to Tarik Jamil that he descide which way leads which way. He is to remain close to the palace of an emperor or he is to stay close to the doors where he used to be a roll model.

"Indian Media Hate provoker- Aim's at Muslim Genocide" written by
"Syed Imran Ali Shah"
Sub continent of South Asia consists of Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and India , all of these countries are struggling economies, the GDP growth ratio is also very low than the rest of the world, there several reasons for the slow development growth rate, but one of the biggest reasons is the unrest and political instability and conflicts between Pakistan and India,
India wants to establish it's hegemony in the sub continent, being huge in population, so in order to do so it has been poking it's nose in the internal affairs of it's neighboring counties like, Bangladesh, Sri Lank, Afghanistan and Pakistan,
In Indian Occupied Kashmir the world has witnessed ever worst human rights violation in all regards by India for more than 70 years, even Today the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir are facing ever longest curfew of about more than 250 days,
India has become one of the more insecure countries in the world as BJP Government lead by Narindera Modi who is of the mindset to make India a complete Hindu State, as RSS's fascist approach has core agenda,
The media is considered to be the fourth pillar of a nation state, after Parliament, Administration and Judiciary, Media plays a very vital role in mind making of the masses over the importance national issues, but the Indian media has forgot all the basic rules of Journalism, they have ruined the soul of that how should media report, Media is not supposed to promote the agenda of the government but the Indian media is doing this, some renowned Indian TV anchors are deliberately provoking Muslims genocide through their hate debates, Arnab Goswami, Anjana Om Keshyap, Sudhir Chowdhry are one of those so called media professionals, who misbehave with their panelists during their programs, their Top agenda is to always do propaganda against Pakistan every now and then, Indian Media has prove to be very much irresponsible when there was a tension between India and Pakistan during February 2019, they intentionally created the war hysteria,
Even Today when Covid 19 Pandemic has shaken the whole world, it has spread to more than 198 countries and some hundred thousand people have died so far being victims to this Pandemic,
The Indian Media is again working on its hate promotion agenda against the Muslims of India, their channels are blaming Tableeghi Jamaat for the spread of Covid 19 in, where as the number show that they are less than 1000, while right now the Covid 19 patients in India are more than 12000, Muslims of India are being victimized as they are nit being allowed to do their businesses for earning their daily bread and butter, they are even not being treated in the hospitals,
Indian media is deliberately working on the agenda of few corporate giants who are patronizing Indian Government in order to get their vested financial interests,
Many of the international channels have reported the indian media is spreading the hate that may lead to Muslim genocide, if the same pattern of the biased reporting carried on,
The world should wake up now, if the Indian atrocities are not stopped it may give birth to an endless war, and if this war erupted the whole world will be effected by this, the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir should have been given the right of self determination, as per the resolutions of United Nations,
The Indian Media should stop spreading hatred, they should highlight the basic and fundamental issues of their country, it's pitty that a self proclaimed largest democracy has become a worst autocratic nation Today, 50 % of Indian population openly deficates due to unavailability of Toilets,
World can't afford anymore wars, So Indian media should have to be sensible enough
COVID-19 : CORONA VIRUS OUTBREAK AND HOW TO STOP IT?
The year 2020 hasn't came out to be a good year for the mankind, starting with the threat of World War III and now the pandemic of COVID-19. 2020 began with the menace of WW III around the globe, now COVID-19 has taken all over the world.
WHAT IS COVID-19 OUTBREAK?
Corona Virus is a type of virus with spikes on them. It is commonly found in humans and animals. It was first discovered in 1960's. COVID-19 is a type of corona virus which was recently discovered and started spreading from sea food markets of Wuhan, China. And now it has became a world wide pandemic. More than 1.76 million people world wide are affected by this epidemic and more than 396 thousand had been pulled off to death. With most cases in USA, Spain, Italy and China.
HOW TO PREVENT IT FROM SPREADING?
The symptoms of COVID-19 are:
- Difficulty in breathing
COVID-19 is a respiratory disorder and mainly spread by human to human. So the best way to prevent it are listed down below:
- Wash hands time by time for 20 seconds with soap or alcohol based sanitizers
- Maintain social distancing
- Self isolation
- Cover nose and mouth while sneezing and coughing
- Keep hands away from face
Only way to stop this outbreak is by self isolating yourself and maintaining social distancing. So we should obey the orders given by government in order to prevent this disease.

Present, Past and Recent advancements in combat against COVID-19
Corona virus is member of subfamily Orthocoronavirinae, family coronaviridae and order Nidovirales. Corona virus usually causes respiratory and gastrointestinal infections. The recent outbreak is due to unique ß-corona virus (COVID-19). The virus genome is single stranded RNA positive sense. Various studies have been carried out to find the origin of this virus, phylogenetic analysis have also been performed and it revealed that this virus is from bat origin. Bats serve as reservoir hosts for this virus. This is virus is 82% similar to human corona virus (SARS-CoV) and 50% to MERS-CoV. Studies have revealed that there was transmission of MERS-CoV from bats to camels. There are various theories regarding current virus pandemic.
Corona viruses are RNA viruses and have crown like appearance when observed under electron microscope. Corona word originated from a Latin word coronum means crown like. Its crown like appearance is due to presence of surface glycoproteins. This virus can be classified in four genera. They are α-coronavirus, ß-coronavirus, Deltacoronavirus and γ-coronavirus. The ß-coronavirus is further divided into five lineages. The phylogenetic studies have revealed that the α-coronavirus and ß-coronavirus are transmitted by bats and rodents. Coronaviridae is a large family and the members of this family causes respiratory, GIT, hepatic and neurological disorders. There are about seven coronaviruses that can infect human beings. There are different coronaviruses here that can infect humans includes HCoV-OC43, HCoV-HKU1, HCoV-229E, and HCoV-NL63, these all are under umbrella of α-coronaviruses. These viruses lead to upper respiratory infections and the disease is self-limiting. The immunocompromised and elder people are more prone to these infections. There are other coronaviruses that can cause illness in humans include SARS-CoV, SARS-CoV-2, and MERS-CoV. These viruses can cause respiratory or other systemic ailments. These morality rates are also variable. These are member of ß-coronaviruses. It was thought that the recent outbreak in Wuhan was due to sea food consumption. It was the major reason for human infection. Later, there were cases that were not linked with this mechanism. It was revealed through various studies that it can be transmitted from one individual to another individual so, the people with symptoms of coronavirus are major source of infection transmission. There are various other respiratory pathogens rhinovirus, the transmission is can occur through respiratory droplets and that can be through coughing and sneezing. Aerosol transmission has also been observed in case of exposure to elevated aerosol concentrations in closed facilities. The transmission, in fact, is primarily to family members, healthcare professionals (doctors, nurses, other hospital staff and health workers), and people with close contact with to infected individual. Pathophysiology of the agent is kind of unique, In Coronaviruses, the genomic structure is positive sense single stranded RNA of approximately 30 kilobytes in length and these are largest known RNA viruses and with a 5′-cap structure and 3′-poly-A tail. Starting from the viral RNA, the synthesis of polyprotein in the host is understood. The transcription occurs through the replication & transcription complex that is structured in double-membrane vesicles and via the synthesis of sub-enomic RNA sequences. The virulence of virus is due to nonstructural and structural proteins the nonstructural proteins are able to block the host immune response that’s why there is rapid damage to host system. The structural proteins are involved in assembly and release mechanisms. The virus is still under study and scientists are working on its different structural domains for better understanding and development of treatment. It has also been observed that the virus initiates excessive immune reaction in host and that is known as cytokine storm. This results in excessive tissue damage. The agonist for this cytokine storm is Interlukin-6 that is responsible for activation of various lymphocytes. It also helps in promotion of various other immune cells like involved in differentiation of B lymphocytes. It also helps in release of various acute phase proteins that are responsible for thermoregulation. There are various histopathological studies that have been conducted to understand the virus pathology. The lungs were examined histologically and there were edema and excessive tissue damage. The lungs were filled proteinaceous exudate. Fibrin like material has also been observed. These implications ultimately lead to difficult breathing and pulmonary arrest. The symptoms for COVID-19 infection are fever, coughing, soreness in throat, nasal congestion, headache, malaise, pain in muscles and generalized illness. The multiple organ failure due to sepsis has also been observed in this infection. To date, there is no treatment for this mysterious infection. There are no specific drugs or vaccines available for its cure. Symptomatic treatment has been performed in all countries and patients are treated with oxygen supply through ventilators. The infection can be differentiated with other viral infections like Adenoviruses, Influenza, Parainfluenza, Human metapneumovirus, Respiratory syncytial virus and common cold caused by Rhino viruses.
WHO (World Health Organization) recommendations
Ø Avoid contact with the infected individuals
Ø Frequent washing of hands after contact with people or environment
Ø Avoid contact with domestic or wild animals
Ø Social distancing is really important
Ø Strict hygienic measures should be adopted to avoid sickness
Ø Avoidance of contact by already diseased people with other infected people or environment
These measures should be adopted to avoid getting infected by this notorious pathogen. The governments are doing their best to combat this pathogen. They should be supported and encouraged. The people should listen to their superiors and governments. These are difficult times and will pass. Life is precious. So, stay home and stay safe.
Finding true love
Love between the worshiper and the Creator feels so satisfying and it fills your heart, especially when you know that Allah loves you. Among the names and attributes of Allah is Al-Wadud, meaning The Most Loving, The Most Affectionate, The Beloved, The Loving-Kindness.
To love Allah is more than simply pronouncing your love of Allah; it is acting upon this love by obeying Him, worshiping Him, liking what He likes, and disliking what He dislikes.
“Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves.”(Quran 2:222)
Allah loves the patient, the steadfast, the doers of good, those who act justly, those who purify themselves and repent regularly, those who are righteous/God-fearing, the God-conscious, those who do what their Creator asked them to do and refrain from what He prohibited them from doing.
“So Allah gave them the reward of this world and the good reward of the Hereafter. And Allah loves the doers of good.” (Quran 3:148)
To find God is very easy for a human being. God is present in our heart and soul. It is for man how early he chose a path where he discover true love.
Our Nation Delimma
I never Published an Article but the following heart-wrenching Incident forced me to do so which took place yesterday at Rahim Yar Khan Pakistan, where a father hanged his son because he wouldn't stop crying due to hunger while his wife left him few days back when he failed to provide them food to survive due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic. We said that a father is nothing without his son but what will be the condition of that father when he tied rope around a neck of his his own child knowing that he is going to kill him. I can just feel pain and anguish. Nothing else.. Why? Because we are equally responsible for all this.
How many students are studying in different universities of Pakistan but how many know that many employees working there are on daily wages?
I was member of my university hostel mess management committee for the last two years but just two months back i came to know that some waiters and dish washers are working there on daily wages for the last 10 to 15 years. Some of them have school going kids and living on rent. They are waiting for their monthly salary which is not more than 15,000pkr ($100).
When we the students busy praying for our Vacations they are worried about cut-off from their salaries due to those Vacations.
But unfortunately we'll do nothing neither our leaders will. We as a Nation Failed in this and we didn't have any effective strategies.
What will they do now when no one is there to give them job or provide them something to eat for their survival?
We as a Muslims also failed because we forget advices of our Heroes like Hazrat Umar ibn Al-Khattab said if a dog dies hungry on the banks of the River Euphrates, Umar will be responsible for dereliction of duty. Hence we and our Leaders are Responsible for all this.

„Schärfere Auflagen“ für Demo
Bei einer dritten Demonstration gegen Kronenbeschränkungen in Stuttgart wurden die geltenden Abstandsregeln nicht eingehalten. Jetzt will die Stadt die Anforderungen verschärfen und einen Platz für die Veranstaltung suchen.
Eine Demonstration gegen die aktuellen Corona-Regeln am Samstag in Stuttgart am Schlossplatz wird Konsequenzen haben.
Es ist die dritte Demonstration dieser Formgebung gewesen, die am Sonnabend gen dem Schlossplatz stattgefunden hat. Angemeldet hatte auch sie welcher IT-Unternehmer Michael Ballweg. Er ist welcher Ansicht, solange wie die Corona-Verordnungen die Grundrechte gefährden. Die vorigen Male waren dem Postulat 30 bis 40 Personen gefolgt. Angemeldet war im Kontext welcher Stadt Stuttgart von neuem eine Protest mit bis zu 100 Teilnehmern. Für selbige Zahl hielt man die Weite des Schlossplatzes auch im Zusammenhang Einhaltung welcher Abstandsregeln im Rahmen ausreichend. Tatsächlich kamen nachher Datensammlung jener Polizei bei 350 mehr noch 500 Volk. Die haben, genauso Fotos belegen, häufig Leerzeichen vermissen lassen. Genauere Aussagen machte er, man habe ebendiese nicht gezählt. „Aber es waren einige“, so welcher Sprecher.
Ist der Veranstalter überlastet?
Die Polizei hat auch nicht in die Angelegenheiten der Betroffenen eingegriffen. Sie haben gerade "ein Foto gemacht". Darüber hinaus hatten die örtlichen Beamten "Kontakt mit dem Versammlungsleiter". Und laut Vereinbarung wäre ein Ordner für zehn Teilnehmer an der Rallye erforderlich.
Der Stuttgarter Bürgermeister Martin Scheirer (CDU) fasst die Situation am Sonntag zusammen: Der Veranstalter sei durch den Zustrom „überlastet“ worden, sagte Scheirer auf Anfrage. Die Stadt will die Ereignisse nicht loslassen. Es kann nicht sein, dass die Kundgebung im Rahmen einer Kronpandemie so „unkontrolliert“ war, betonte Shairer. Derzeit kann es keine Demonstrationen "wie früher" geben. Die geltenden Entfernungsregeln müssen strikt eingehalten werden, um frühere Maßnahmen gegen das Virus nicht zu gefährden.
Finde einen größeren Ort
Martin Scheirer hat nun angekündigt, dass die Stadt die Anforderungen für weitere Demonstrationsanwendungen verschärfen und einen breiteren Veranstaltungsort suchen wird. Eine der Verhandlungen scheint der Schillerplatz zu sein.
Trotz des Demonstrationsverbots protestierten in Berlin rund 1.000 Menschen gegen Einschränkungen aufgrund der Kronenkrise. Einige von ihnen waren nahe beieinander, mehr als 100 wurden verhaftet.
Neue Herausforderungen für Mario Gomez
Spaß wird bei Mario Gomez nicht vernachlässigt. Dafür sorgt das abwechslungsreiche Trainingsprogramm beim VfB Stuttgart. Der 34-Jährige ist aber auch besorgt über die Kronenkrise.
Mario Gomez ist mit großer Freude da. Dies setzt sich in kleinen Gruppen für die Fußballmannschaft der zweiten Liga fort. Cheftrainer Pellegrino Matarazzo fordert die Spieler nicht nur sportlich und technisch heraus, sondern auch bei Wettbewerben. Es muntert auf - und behält hohe Motivation bei. „Wir lösen die Probleme eines Teams, in dem es immer Gewinner des Tages und der Woche gibt“, sagt Gomez.
Diese Woche warten neue Herausforderungen auf Sie. Natürlich macht der 34-jährige Veteran keine Übungen, die aus hygienischen Gründen und aufgrund des Kontaktverbots während der Krise in Corona immer noch eingeschränkt sind. "Wir sollten dankbar sein, dass wir in dieser schwierigen Zeit überhaupt unsere Arbeit machen können", sagt Gomez, der besonders bestätigt, dass junge Spieler "Energie und Ehrgeiz" sprühen.
Nach Aussagen seines eigenen VfB-TV-Clubs stellt er sich weiterhin die Frage: "Wie soll man sich verhalten?"
