خیال اور آگہی:

خیال اور آگہی:

ڈارون کے بندر نے آج کے انسان کو یہ بھلا دیا کہ رب العزت نے  علم انسان کو دے کر پھر دنیا بھیجا۔ اس سے پتا یہ چلا کہ علم انسان کی جاگیر نہیں رب کی دین ہے۔

اس علم کی ظاہری اشکال مختلف ہو سکتی ہیں مگر اس کی اصل ہیئت کی تین ہی صورتیں ہیں۔
وحی
اِلھام
خیال

وحی کا سلسلہ رب العزت نے انبیاء  کے ساتھ ہی ختم کردیا اور رہتی دنیا تک قرآن کریم کی صورت میں ہمارے لئے فرقان اور ازلی ہدایات  محفوظ کردیں۔

الھام  دراصل خیال ہی کی تربیت یافتہ صورت ہے۔
فرق صرف حوالگی کا ہے۔
وہ  سوچ جو رب کے حوالے کردی گئی ہو  وہاں خیال الھام بن جاتا ہے۔

آج کے انسان نے اپنے خیال کو  LTD اور TM کردیا ہے۔
یعنی:
Private limited, Trade Mark( All rights reserved)

ایسی کمال لطافت کا شرک کہ بت کی شناخت ہی نہ ہو پائے۔

بھئی  inspiration کی بھی تو کوئی سبیل  ہوتی ہے کہ نہیں؟

یا  انسان خود ہی  کو کُل سمجھ بیٹھا ہے۔

اپنے خیال کی ملکیت کے دعوے چھوڑ دیجیے اور اپنی سوچ کو بھی رب کے حوالے کیجئے۔

آپ کوئی پہلے انسان نہیں جس کو خیال آیا ہو۔

مقابلہ خیال کی ملکیت میں نہیں اُس کی حوالگی میں کریں۔

اپنا آپ رب کے حوالے کریں۔

اپنے خیال کو ایمان کے حوالے کریں۔

تبھی آگہی کا سفر شروع ہوگا۔

Revisiting and Challenging; the concept of self respect and our false claim to entitlement:



The limitation and partiality of human kind is rationale enough to conclude that it is not the ability or belief of the ‘self’ which makes one successful but the lack of thereof and in its stead a strong belief in the ability, control and sovereignty of a God Almighty.

The consequent method then applied has in its basis a belief of the one and the whole and not of the partial or the limited.

If such is the basis of belief then the concept of self respect stemming from it will be based in a sense of duty and responsibility automatically making it easier for human beings to deal with limitations and hurdles. Giving birth to hope.

If the concept of self respect stems from a claim to be entitled or deserving then it can lead to nothing else but confusion, hurt and divisions.

Don’t believe in yourself, believe in God!

The restorer of all trusts , the source!

Self doubt is natural.

To be sure of ones self is un natural!

That’s something iblees did which resulted in his insistence on disobedience and he was thus cursed for eternity.

Let’s not insist on our right, let’s struggle to become eligible for that right lest we are replaced by someone more eligible.

Let’s make our peace with Allah’s will and our limitations.

Lets accept our dependence with humility on God!

سوال؟

سوال؟

آج کی دنیا میں جدید تحقیق کی ساری بنیاد اس ‘سوال’ پر ہی ہے۔ قرآن بھی ہم کو سوال کی حقیقت سمجھاتا ہے ۔

انسان  کی کسی بھی سعی میں کاملیت کا تصور اپنے آپ میں باطل ہے۔

قرآن میں بے شمار سوالوں کی اقسام کو ہم دو بڑی  اقسام میں بانٹ سکتے ہیں۔ ایک وہ سوال جو عوام الناس نے کئے۔ دوسرے  وہ جو انبیاء و صالحین نے کئے۔

دونوں  زمرات میں  جو واضح فرق ہے اُس کو زیر تدبر لانا اس تحریر کا مقصود ہے۔

سادہ الفاظ میں یہ کہ انسان کا سوال کرنا اُس کے مخلوق ہونے پردلالت ہے۔ اور   ایک  سوال کی قسم گمان میں اپنی بنیادرکھتی ہے جبکہ دوسری یقین  میں۔

گمان صیح بھی ہوسکتا ہے اور غلط بھی جبکہ یقین اپنی سچائی  کو خود شکل دیتا ہے۔

گمان وقت ضائع کراتا ہے۔ یقین راستہ بناتا ہے۔

گمان گمراہی کا سبب بنتا ہے اور یقین ہدایت کا۔

گمان وسائل کے پیچھے بھگاتا ہے۔ یقین وسائل کو اپنی طرف کھینچتا ہے۔

اپنے سوال کی بنیاد میں اگر ہم یقین کو  چن لیں تو تحقیق کی بنیاد اصل میں ہوگی ۔ اینٹ کی جگہ بھی خود بخود بنتی جائےگی اور  اس کی شکل بھی آپ سے آپ سانچے میں ڈھل کر تیار ہوگی۔

عمارتوں کی پائداری بنیاد سے ماپی جاتی ہے۔ ڈھانچے پر آئی دڑاڑیں محض عمر کا پتہ دیتی ہیں۔

یقین پر لوٹیں

Control or Surrender; the path to real profit!

Propaganda and advertisement:

The not so modern yet quite prevalent tools of propaganda and advertisement have been and still are being extensively used to influence for some purpose or profit.

The important point is to ponder over their effectiveness and to revisit our definitions of influence and profit.

The ‘why’s’ and ‘what’s’ of a method.

The human being has a huge urge to control and possess control of other people and their resources.

This urge is not to be given in to.

Propaganda and Advertisment are two of the many such tools used to take control of what people choose to live with or without.

The initial ‘why’ in this hierarchy of influence again is quite problematic.

If we challenge the ‘why’ the whole equation can change.

Simply put, the ‘why’ of the corporate mindset is to extract profit by any means possible.

Since impossibility of looting openly is  evident as it’s an established vice thus more sophisticated methods are applied to help an individual submit to the corporation without any resistance.

The only possible way to curb and mould such a mindset is through surrender. To let go of this urge to influence for profit.

Real profit is always in serving, the act itself, the achievement or the journey. Control or material success is only useful if it’s a byproduct of surrender and not the aim itself.

Intent and News worthiness

Intent makes news:

Its very important for us as readers and viewers to understand that when modern media franchises claim neutrality in reporting news, such a claim is never truly verifiable or conclusive.

The news worthiness of any ‘news’ is decided by the policy makers dependant on their policy. Which explicitly outlines the  ‘slant’ ( focus)  news should have to make it sellable.

None of it is new to this world. Many are aware of this intentional focus on specific issues.

What everyone is not aware of is the effect of spreading a specific ‘focus’ daily on a mass level.

Chomsky has been discussing this ‘ manufacturing of consent’ and ‘creation of news worthiness’ for decades now.

The subtle trickling and manufacturing of a specific focus throughout generations has actually succeeded in creating a reality overflowing with resentment , vengeance and hopelessness.

Our collective psyche as a nation has become that of an ‘Anti-social Narcissist’.

We see the bug buzzing and our paranoia increases every passing second.

The bug needs to be taken care off!

While the serpent coils itself slowly up our necks!

We feel the choking isolation of our strangled reality but our dread in facing the reality forces us to focus on the bug in its stead.

Breaking News:

“A bug managed to infect a healthy adult while a serpent tried to protect him”

Happy news watching everyone!

Bias, partiality and modern science:

Bias, partiality and modern science:

I don’t think we should fear partiality or biases, they are but a very natural ideological phenomenon. A human limitation and necessity to grapple with an ever changing dynamic reality. A human being is able to survive only because of this ability to limit and define his partiality.

It’s our inability to admit to our biases and the consequent ostracisation of our thinking patterns  that becomes problematic.

The partiality an individual shows is actually quite necessary in defining that person, his culture and  his society. A direct link to the very live and ever growing collective stream of thought a society is developing and has developed.

It’s not a linear phenomenon. It cannot be measured or read. It has to be seen and the only way to change the path a collective stream of thought has taken is to affect it collectively.

Individual biases give into collective biases losing their own shape.

The strength of an individual bias can actually shape the rest.

It’s interesting to notice that the modern scientific method claims to isolate human bias while in reality what it really only does is to ostracise some more than others and in turn intensifies the process of breaking up a collective stream of thought into independent components. It merely helps the individual bias to loose shape, in turn letting chaotic un productive biases become stronger shaping agents in a collective thought pattern.

So instead of shaping biases, experimental science actually divides and increases the number of biases.

Our partial thought processes are partial for a reason. The bias is to be moulded from within and not chiselled  from without because In doing so (the later) we actually destroy the whole fabric of a very living collective thought process.

Moulding is a process within, which is actually an indicator of the growth of a society’s  collective mindset.

Chaos, hatred and divisions didn’t just happen.

We make them happen.

We can make them change too!

Idol worship and Us

The idols we worship:

The only difference between our idols and the Greek or Hindu idols is that our s are still living so we haven’t actually carved stone statues out of them.

We love to give pedestals to mortals, raise them above ourselves. Admire them. Copy them. Please them and when they get tired and try getting off the pedestal ( inevitable as it is being mortal),

We hold them to it. Strapped in tightly. Then we give them electric shocks to revive them to come up to our dreamt up glory for them.

Idols are the desires which we let loose on society after breeding them long and silently in our diseased, tattered souls. The hidden Gods we hold so dear.

The height of human folly is not in bowing to a stone statue, that is merely a consequence.

Our greatest folly is in surrendering to our own will!

We are but just a dot in a huge design.

A dot trying to be the design.

Not attempting to understand the will of the creator.

It’s about His will, not ours!
