The Future of Global Economy by Brasstacks - Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid

Understanding the economic prowess and vulnerabilities of the enemy is equally critical as measuring his military strength. While we are having a standoff with US and NATO over multiple national security issues, it is absolutely critical for Pakistan to understand the economic disease which now afflicts the western military alliance threatening us.

US and NATO do not have the economic muscle left to wage another high intensity war against a nuclear armed Islamic nation and the factors to support this analysis are enclosed in this critical analysis by BrassTacks. Knowing the hidden and bitter truth about the critical economic health of the western military alliance gives us a strong edge over the adversary in military and diplomatic negotiations and engagements.

The ill health of western military alliance does not mean that the threats from Us and NATO have diminished. The presently deployed 4GW is raging against Pak Sarzameen with full ferocity with the objective of turning the state into a failed dysfunctional entity like Somalia. Once that critical threshold is achieved, the next phase would be to make an “Iraq” of Pakistan, through Af-Pak and Cold Start invasions and occupations. Last phase would be the “Yugoslavia” model for Pakistan -- dismemberment and balkanization. We must roll back the presently deployed 4GW and recover from the “failed state” environment. Blocking the NATO supplies have fatally damaged the planned Af-Pak invasions also and have imposed serious caution on the Indians as well, as Cold start was to be deployed in tandem with the Af-Pak invasion.

4thGW cannot be defeated without bringing in patriotic government in Islamabad. That is the first and most urgent prerequisite to build a solid response, else all other measures would collapse in the absence of a patriotic government. US and NATO know their inability to use force against Pakistan without making a “Somalia” or without the Indian help. If we can reverse the 4thGW and kill the Af-Pak, Cold start would automatically be mortally wounded.

For now, US can only use bluff, bribe, threat and psy-ops to try to get their supplies released and re-launch the Af-Pak. Their economy at home has crashed, making it impossible for them to threaten us militarily at this stage. This is their biggest vulnerability and our strength. Know it well and stand firm.

InshAllah khair for Pak Sarzameen.

Significance Of Eid Al-Adha In Islam

According to Islamic calender, Eid Al-Adha occurs on the 10th of Lunar month of Hijjah. Unlike the discrepancies in sighting of moon, which tells us about the end of the month of Ramadan and the beginning of Shawwal, sighting of new moon for Hijjah was determined some 10 days before.

Because of the fact that millions of people who perform Hajj to Mecca must perform this ritual in some specific days. It would be nonsensical for any person to perform Eid Al-Azha on any other specific day, because Eid must follow Day of Arafat and it lies is the 9th Day of Dhul Hijjah.

Muslims who are not pilgrims celebrate the Eid on the day following the day of Arafat, with some congressional Eid prayers which is then followed by a special khutba like that of Eid-ul-Fitr. It is not obligatory to stay for Khutba of Eid. Once 2 rakat of Eid prayers have completed, many people go out to make sacrifice. If you Learn Quran, you can better understand the importance of Eid Al-Adha.

After the prayer, people sacrifice animals or proper livestock that they can afford. One third of the animal goes to family, one third to poor, and one third to friends and relatives. However, it is recommended to give as much in charity as possible.

The sacrifice is made from sunrise on the 10th of Dhul-Hija till sunset on the 13th, as the Eid Al-Adha remains for 3 days. It is a symbol of mercy of God. He tested Prophet Abraham, and gave him order to sacrifice his son, Ismail. Both father and son carried out the command, and God released Ismail, and placed an animal in his place

What Quran Learning can bring to humans

There comes a time in every person’s life when they find themselves inclined greatly to think what they are here for in this world, the purpose of their life, who created them, and most importantly, who created all of this (the whole universe).

This state of mind, when not addressed appropriately by feeding appropriate answers to it, can lead a person to get strayed; not only becoming oblivious to everything going around him, but also from his own being.

To stay away from such a situation, the best way is to heed to what creator of the whole universe, i.e. The Mighty Allah tells you to, and that is nothing other than teachings of Quran and Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Online Quran Learning is the best way to go for, if you want to achieve this purpose.

Learn Quran To Observe Its Positive Impacts On Humans

You will better understand this by going through the content of Qur’an as explained in this chapter of the Holy Book:

In the Name of God, the Lord of Grace, the Ever Merciful We have always sent messages (of guidance) as a mercy from your Lord. He alone is the One who hears all and knows all, the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, if only you were firm believers. There is no deity other than Him; He gives life and deals death. He is your Lord and the Lord of your earliest ancestors. Yet they remain in doubt, playing about. (Smoke; Al-Dukhan; 44: 5-10)

This shall serve a motivation and inspiration enough to compel every single person in this world towards Quran Learning, because this is just one instance of Holy Qur’an, with whole of it filled by specimens like these. That is why learning of Quran is so important as per Islamic traditions.
