Islam and Modern Man
The Islam should maintain complete unity in their ranks and create brotherly atmosphere among them. Youth, the coming generations see all this happenings, but show disinterestedness and lack of confidence.
The cause is that out minds are divided.Sometimes we think about spiritual universe and sometime we think about secular world. We are wandering here and there without any aim. Islam, in these days faceds the western philosophy. Some west oriented Muslims are trying to bring Islam near western ideas. They are misleading the Muslims. This action will spread disturbance in the Muslim world. Such circumstances will produce a sorry figure in every step of life. They should check the wrong explanations of Holy Quran.
No one can understand the Holy Quran better than Holy Prophet (PBUH).
We should study the teachings of Sunnah. We can say it with a firm belief that Islam is the complete code of whole life and after life. We are responsible for one good and bad actions. We will be answerable to Allah an the Day of Judgment. It is the time to restore our dignity and follow the teachings of Islam so that Pakistan may become the fort of Islam.
