In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â I invite you all and myself towards Divine Taqwa and emphasize you to adopt Taqwa in every affair of your lives and live it in accordance with Taqwa. Allah has granted various bounties to man and amongst all these bounties the biggest one is life. The purpose of this life has been ordained and amongst creation the most sanctitous life is that of human being and the basis of greatness, sanctity of human life lies in its esteemed purpose of life as compared to other creation. This privilege makes the life also dignified. In order to achieve that purpose of life Allah has made the arrangement of guidance and in this arrangement the basis has been kept as Taqwa and man has to traverse this journey of life on the path of Taqwa. There are many paths of human life but all of them do not reach the purpose; there are many deviated, distorted, misguided paths on which a big majority of every generation has been travelling and are travelling. These paths are not going towards the purpose of life and man due to deviance, lust, desire worship, following his self, pleasurable gains leaves that real path which goes towards the purpose and instead adopts that path which takes him away from the purpose. The Quran has referred to these deviated paths as Lahw and Lahb. The life gets lost on these paths and gets away from the purpose and man receives failure in the hereafter. The title of this failure given by Quran is hell.
The hell is the name of failure of man whereas Paradise is the title of manâ€™s success. We have resembled heaven and hell with worldly affairs. We have compared them to these houses where man lives. One house is with hardship and one with comfort. Heaven and hell are not two places but two end results of two types of lives. That life which has been spent on the right path and has reached its purpose the title of that end is paradise. The one that goes not on the right path and the title of that right path if Taqwa. If the life is spent on the right path then the end of Taqwa is Paradise and heavens; or Liqaullah, perfection and status of man. Failure is hell. Unfortunately the percentage of failures are higher. Like in Pakistan first of all there is no orientation towards education but one generation is pursued to go towards education. Those who come towards education some of them leave after primary education and those who continue within them also the success rate is very less. We cannot even calculate the numbers as it reduces three times. The minority that is left when they give exams then from them one minority remains. Similarly human life also has similar distribution. There is only one minority who is serious about life and majority are not serious. From the serious minority one minority comes towards guidance. From these a big majority leaves the path of guidance and then one minority that is left we can see what small minority reaches the results. Allah says that very few servants of mine are grateful and patient.
This failed category who will be in hell and when they will reach the hereafter there the successful people will question these failed ones. The Ashabul Yameen who were successful will question these failed persons as to what made you fail in life because everything was ready for you and all means were available for you then also why did you fail? Did Allah not bestow upon you life, health, intelligent, heavenly books, Prophets, Imamâ€™s, Scholars? If all these were there then why did you fail? Those whom Allah has given everthing then why have they failed. For these people only who have all the means of success available we should be astonished as to why they should fail?
There is a prose of Hafiz which our teacher would strictly teach us and would scold us on our laziness using this prose. He would say that shortfalls you have? You are in the sacred city of Qom, good books, good teachers, pure personalities then why you donâ€™t do this. Hafiz says that Allah tells ; O heart why you donâ€™t come to our street; you are seen in all unworthy places but donâ€™t come to us. Why you donâ€™t come on the path of Allah. You can see in Pakistan how many are there on the path of Allah? There is rush in every street, on every street of Satan, Lahw, Tughyaan, lust and lanes of materialism are full but the path, ways of Allah are empty. And all these shortfalls are in the situation when you have all the resources and means with you. What are you missing? Every means have been given to you by Allah but you are not coming in this direction. Now from the successful ones only this question is raised that you had everything with you but why have you failed? What were the causes of their failure we should ask them?

Â What has brought you into hell?
The hereafter is the result of our actions. This state is the outcome of the first state which could be of two types; one would be heaven and other hell that is one is successful result and other failed. The failed persons in hell will give the answer on what basis we have become criminal. This is very important if criminals do the right analysis and tell as to why they were destroyed it would help others. Like in an education system if the failed students can inform correctly as to why they failed in the exams it would help others studying. But generally they donâ€™t inform the correct reasons but here in this case they are in hell and they cannot hide and are giving the reasons for what got them into hell.

Then we were negligence of Qayamat and have forgotten, denied the day of accountability. These four became the basis of our failure. In this the third cause which is
ÙˆÙŽÙƒÙÙ†ÙŽÙ‘Ø§ Ù†ÙŽØ®ÙÙˆØ¶Ù Ù…ÙŽØ¹ÙŽ Ø§Ù„Ù’Ø®ÙŽØ§Ø¦ÙØ¶ÙÙŠÙ†ÙŽ
The third cause that is of Khaezeen, Khauz which means purposeless occupancy, discussions or entering into such topics, showing interests in those things which is wasting the life of man without any intellectual or practical results. This is also known as gossiping. We were with the gossipers and spent our entire life with Khaezeen and hence were unsuccessful. We have to ponder precisely on this topic as this is an important day today which is 23rdMarch.
23rdMarch is the day on which the freedom of Pakistan was accepted and the resolution was passed for a nation. It is a day of freedom for Pakistan on which their destiny was written. It is the day of destiny and fate for Pakistan. From that day when the destiny was selected and seventy years have passed.
It is a very important day for a community but at the present the rights of this day is not getting delivered because the nation is under grief, calamity, deviance, control of others and there are accursed clouds hovering over every segment of the nation and have paralyzed the entire nation. This has become a reason on how this nation spends this day like other days. In what things are our days passing for this nation and for everyone; young, old, woman, men? We are spending most of our time in Khauz and we are with the Khaezeen. The biggest disease that has inflicted this community is Khauz (wasting time in purposeless things) which Quran is presenting as a big cause behind the failure of people. The criminals are themselves are saying that we were unsuccessful because of Khauz. And it is not a possibility but in fact certainty that those who do Khauz will definitely fail.
I have mentioned before that one of the grievous aspect of our culture is that we do not possess Jidd (seriousness) and by searching hard also you will not find Jidd in Pakistan. Jidd (seriousness) is the principle and foundation of success. If a person keeps on working for entire life but if he does not possess Jidd he cannot even see the face of success. Those who do not possess Jidd should become contented that neither they will see success in this world or hereafter. They are just keeping expectations from intercessors that they will be supported. The Bani Israel were a community which was non serious completely. They were a community indulged in mockery, joking, making excuses, stubborn, presenting false arguments, non-practical but their desires, expectations were that we are saints of Allah, beloved of Allah and will never go to hell, the heavens are for us and apart from us no one can enter heaven. This was the mindset which their religious priests had made and mentally they were convinced by their priests that they can go into heavens without any seriousness since you are from the lineage of Prophets. There would be no accountability for you and this mindset was made by their illegitimate usurping scholars who destroyed their generations and took them away from Allah. They had nothing by the name of seriousness. When Jidd is not present then man gets into the category of Khauz. We should do the right interpretation of the world Khauz and then see if we are indulged in Khauz then we should get out of that immediately.
It is like in utter darkness of night we see a pond of water and due to heat we urgently jump into it for taking bath; but when light comes up we see that this pond is a gutter of filthy water; then we will immediately come out of it.
Khauz in Arabic refers to walking inside water. When some people see water they remove their shoes and walk into water for getting some relieve from heat. The roads are always hard and of sand. There is no way to walk in water and is known by the most senseless of beings also. Whenever water comes on the path they make bridges so that people do not have to get into water to walk. We can see water is passing from various places and we can see no roads are made inside water because water has this quality that it does not allow anyone to walk inside water. Hence for travelling you cannot walk inside water. Wherever water comes people get aside and make routes from other places. Sometimes people make roads from other peopleâ€™s homes because there was water on the road. Water is very beneficial for man but one thing that cannot be done in water is that you cannot walk through water. But some people for the sake of pleasure get inside water and swim. This is Gauss. But if someone gets inside water and starts to walk in water it is Khauz. He is an insane person who wants to travel by walking in water. He will take hours but he cannot cover the distance.
One person is walking on the dry land and other in water, there will be big difference. For walking the paths are on dry land. Those who get inside water they waste all the opportunities. In my school age we had two paths to go to school, one was the dry route that used to pass through villages and other path was through water streams. Those who would walk through streams were those people who had no intention to reach school. They would bath there and would never reach school. If a person wants to walk in water and reach the purpose he cannot reach. It takes a lot of energy to walk in water. If the water is up to ankles then also it is difficult, if it is till knee it will be tougher, if till waist then tougher and if till neck then it is difficulty to even move. Those who want to walk in water are wasting their life, time and age. Hence this is Khauz in water. Some people have their life style such that they are walking in water and wasting their life. If you ask them what are you doing? They will say they are walking but will not reach there. Hence Khauz in terminology means those who are occupied in purposes, useless talks and works. Those who want to travel they select dry routes but some leave the paths of dry land they get into the water, this is a analogy to those who have left straight paths and have adopted useless, purposeless affairs and are wasting their time, abilities and everything they are wasting in these affairs. For them Quran says they are Khaezeen and they will not reach anywhere.
When this becomes an inheritance for a community then one generation inherits Khauz to another generation. At present you can analyze various categories of people in our community. Today at the time of Friday on 23rdMarch what are the Pakistaniâ€™s busy in and interested in? They are busy in cricket. In Pakistan at present Super league match is going on and everyone including scholars, army men, police, government, judge, courts, Shia, Sunni, Wahhabi, Barelvi, sages, disciples, women, daughter, son in law, daughter in law, all are busy in cricket. This is Khauz. Entire community is drowned in a filthy topic and to this extent that in the holy sacred city of Qom and I am telling this based on past experience that many seminary students of Pakistan would have left Dars (lectures) today. They donâ€™t come for lectures on the day of cricket and would listen to commentary of cricket match.Â This is what makes nations unsuccessful. They talk on their local politics for days, hours, weeks, years and talk about rowdies, goons of their area. The Social media is the most filthy, dirty media on which the community has started to walk. On Facebook and other means the entire time of this community is spent. This is recent but since 70 yrs we were victims of this disease of Khauz. Hence this nation is ruined and not settled, prosperous. The nation was ruined from all dimensions and today the global institutes want to catch these weaknesses and punish these slaves. Sometimes they will say you are supporters of terrorism, sometimes they will say your country is economically corrupt. You see the occupancies of politicians, religious person as to what they like and are interested in. You do the survey of entire Pakistan, you wonâ€™t find or catch anyone doing any intellectual research, producing or developing or doing something constructive. This is because Khauz snatches all strengths and abilities.
The destiny of Pakistan was being written on 23rdmarch. The law of Allah has made the principles of destiny but in our minds the picture of destiny is made as something persuasive which was done intentionally by the constructors of religion from Bani Umayyah. The correct interpretation of destiny is what Allama Iqbal has presented that people, communities select their destiny themselves and they can change also. The destiny, fate which we have today is our own selection and we have decided ourselves for this and we cannot accuse anyone else. In that destiny when this was being done for the nation certain things were forsaken, abandoned and they were not compensated also till date. The disease was that of Khauz and we spent 70 yrs in Khauz and with Khauz neither the nation, community gets developed. Khauz means to get inside the water that too filthy water. We have done that also like a flock of sheep. One sheep jumped inside and other sheep said she is my cousin so she also followed. They all jumped after relatives. Khauz is one bad act and then following like flock of sheep is another incorrect act. Generations after generations followed doing Khauz and we did not become attentive.
When our destiny was being written and that too when the destiny of communities is not written by themselves and instead done by traders and dealers then that is not done correctly. Like today if we have to buy house, cars there are agents who make parties sit to get the deal done and they take commission. When traders write the destiny they never right the correct destiny. When we have given the authority to the traders, dealers to write our destiny they only do deals. The nations have to write their own destiny on the principles that Allah has ordained. This has been a grace of Allah to the nation of Pakistan that they were given an opportunity to write their destiny fresh from the state in which they were. Like for the Shias of Pakistan that day will be greater than any Eid on which the Shias of Pakistan will get an opportunity to write what they want and where they want to go. But if this gets done in the state of senselessness and is written by the traders. If the Shia nation gives the authority to dealers and ask them to write the destiny that would be the most accursed day when the traders write our destiny.
23rdMarch was the day of destiny and if on that day the nation would have been given the authority to write the destiny and the nation would have possessed to do this. If you ask a child to write his destiny he would say first get me out of the school. It is necessary to have strong sense to write the destiny. Hence those leaders like Allama Iqbal who give sense are required. Allama Iqbal was not a trader of nation, he was not desirous of leadership, he did not wanted to become chairman, president. His desire was only that the community, their youths get awakened and develop sense. He was the Imam of sense. He wrote the sentences of awakening. When he sung the song of awakening those who do not like communities with sense and only like flock of sheep whom they want to herd; they like senseless community; they suggested this formula for Iqbal that this person is not suitable for this community. This is because from his breath the passion of youths gets aroused, he awakens them, makes them aware and this ode reciter is harmful for us.
Iqbal ke Nafas e hai Laleh ki aag Tez
Koi Is gazal sarah ko Chaman se nikal de
The fire of youths is aroused by the spirit of Iqbal
Someone should remove this ode reciter from the garden
This garden should be under owls. On its every branch there should be an owl which are necessary for ruining this garden. This was also a poem from a Pakistani poet.
Har shaakh par ullo bhaitha hai
Anjam e Gulistan kya hoga
There is an owl sitting on every branch
what would be the future of this garden
The gardens on which Owls settle there will be darkness because owl is a bird of darkness and not light. Iqbal is illuminated and hence owls do not like Iqbal to be present. They want to remove such ode reciter from garden because he spreads light, he awakens and when light encompasses the garden , sense comes up then where will owls sit. Hence they wanted this light not to be there so that owls can camp in this garden.
One thing that is essential for the Pakistani nation as it is 23rdMarch. Every year there would be parades and we would deliver the rights of that day by watching the parade. 23rdMarch should be made as the day of destiny for Pakistan. There is one 23rdMarch which should be again selected to write a new destiny because the first destiny that was written it was about separation and making a new state. That was done and also broken into parts and Bangladesh was separated. The separate nation was created and we got freedom but since those writing the destiny did not had the sense to write the complete destiny they had not written the complete destiny. There was an important element missed out in that destiny and now a new generation has to add this one element in the new destiny. And that element is of Isteqlal.
Isteqlal (independence) was not at all written in the destiny for Pakistan. They wrote separation and freedom but did not write Isteqlal in the destiny of Pakistan. It was not that this was not present in the minds and they forget to write in fact it was not at all present in the minds of the writers of destiny. We have to understand this terminology of Isteqlal as these are the divine principles, Quranic and intellectual principles. If Allama Iqbal would have written the resolution he would have written Isteqlal before freedom. We have seen in our neighborhood where the nation changed its destiny. Its initial destiny was written by dealers, traders and the traders of community; they treaded on that destiny and then after centuries a leader was born who told them this destiny is not suitable for you, for a nation with dignity and honor. We have to change this and revolution was the name of this changing of destiny. The nation developed this sense, did not acted with stubbornness, they did not accuse the Leader and did not term him as agent. They understood this and wrote a new destiny. Imam Khomeini (r.a) before wrote Isteqlal before freedom.
In Pakistani literature, education, thinking, media the word Isteqlal is not present at all. You would not have heard this world in the syllabus and literature of Pakistan. We are strangers to the terminology of Isteqlal and when something is not there in our destiny why should we study it and use it. As I said before there is no English word for Gairat and this is because there is no Gairat present in that culture. The word Isteqlal is not used at all in our culture and literature. We have to understand this terminology carefully. We have got separation and freedom but without Isteqlal. Hence this freedom did not went into that direction and to that destination even after passing 70 yrs. What was the shortfall? It was of that sense and if we possessed that sense that we had to include Isteqlal in our destiny and establish Isteqlal in our nation. Without Isteqlal the infrastructure of freedom is incomplete. But what is Isteqlal? Let me first explain literary meaning.
Isteqlal comes from the Arabic world Kaleel which means something that is less or short. But this being less or short there are various prerequisites and conditions. Sometimes this shortfall is beneficial but sometimes a loss. IF there is a shortfall in education, money, means, age are not good. Certain things in which shortfall are of loss but in certain things they are beneficial. Like if your weight is more it is loss but if it is less it is a sign of good health. If burden is less, calamities, troubles are less, diseases are less it is better for man. The essentiality for something less or shortfall. We always use numbers though everything is not measurable in units. Like when you count books, pens you count in numbers. When you count human beings then the unit is not numbers it is individuals. Shortfall is sometimes in count, numbers and due to which sometimes man suffers loss. But at times this shortfall when in numbers can be beneficial also for man. I will give an example to make this clear.
If we have something heavy which ten persons are lifting. But when these persons are not there or present but one person comes forward and tells the other nine that I donâ€™t need you all; I will do this alone. One person is less and ten are more. This one person lifts the weight of ten persons and here it is not a loss for this person but instead a matter of prestige. This person all alone is doing the work of ten. He is fighting alone instead of a battalion being present. There was an army of thousand persons and this one person tells those thousand that you all sit, I will fight alone and he does and wins the battle. Here this being less, alone is a matter of prestige. Here being less is better for person as compared to be more. This type of shortfall is prestigious and better where alone something is done instead of many. When this isolation becomes a sign of firmness, strength becomes manifested and this name comes on the mouth of everyone that this person alone can do so much.
I have gone to some place for Tableegh and I used to spend few months with those youths for Tableegh. One day they said that in the suburbs of the city there is a garden and good place so letâ€™s go there. We went there in the car and since there was water and the car got stuck in the sand. They tried all possible ways to get the car out but these 15 youths could not do it. They sent one person to the town to get a tractor to tow it. This person went and came back with another person. They asked what happened to tractor, this member replied that this person I have got will get the car out there is no need for the tractor. I thought this person would be some car mechanic but still he will need some heavy car to pull it. He took all of us aside and lifted the car from the back and got it out. For me it was astonishing and I prayed for him. I asked him as to who he is. They said he is Mr. Pakistan, weight lifting champion of Pakistan. This weight was very light for him and very comfortably he did. Sometime back I met this person and he had forgotten it and I reminded him of this incident. If someone does such things alone people appreciate such a person and look at him with respect. If one person alone does certain things against a big number this person becomes manifested.
On this basis only if you see the mountain peaks, you will see one peak is above the peak of others and is manifested. Like in Gilgit there are Ketu, Nanga, and Mount Everest are unique peaks and are manifested amongst the other mountain peaks. Such kind of peak of mountain which is manifested as different from others in Arabic language is termed as Qulla, Qulla e Buland.Â Qulla is the highest peak which is alone standing out from all other mountain peaks. The Arabs call it Qulla because it is unique, standing out and its uniqueness is not the basis of its disgrace, lowliness instead it is the sign of its greatness and respect. This is because it is not dependent and on support of anyone. Qulla is that mountain peak which is established on its feet, highest amongst all. This word is used in Urdu and Persian as well. Qulla is the unique, manifested peak that is touching the sky.
Isteqlal has come out of this only. An individual, community, nation, tribe if they stand on their own without the support of others and reaches upwards to this level of manifestation that from far off they are seen before others are seen. This is the height, greatness which is termed as Isteqlal. To stand on your own feet, without the support of others, not being dependent on others, on its own strength, confidence and self-trust standing out as the top most from others is Isteqlal. If man has a lot but all has come from begging, stealing and there are many who have piles but are not standing on their own feet, it has all been given by others. IF you see in Pakistan that those who are begging are richer than those from whom they beg. A believer said that I took a plot which was very expensive in Lahore and when the time came for signing the papers of transfer; the owner was a beggar and it was a shock. They said he has many such plots which he has all earned by begging. This is disgrace, humiliation and shameful that we spread our hands for begging or by stealing man fulfills his needs.
Isteqlal means that a nation without the support of any stranger, not under the mercy of anyone, not under cooperation of anyone, not under delegation, employment of any other community or strangers. They have no authority of anyone above them. They have made their own status, on their own and gone above everyone else. This is known as Isteqlal. Freedom, Separation is different. Freedom means you had shackles, chains and were captive in a prison without your desire. To break the shackles, chains and coming out of prison is freedom. A prisoner is free from prison and is free now, he is no more a prisoner. But when he comes out he tells the taxi person I have no money please drop me somewhere. He tells the restaurant I have no money give me food. He is free now but asking food, clothes from others. This free person is now under more disgrace then he was a prisoner. He is taking support of others, he is dependent on others. Isteqlal is independency which means you do not need the shoulders of anyone. Just for respect I can say that we have put down the shackles of slavery though none of Pakistani have removed the shackles of slavery. Even today the Qiblah of Pakistan is Britain. That accursed community who made this nation slave, looted the nation, disgraced us but even today we love them. Pakistani considers it as an ascension to go to Britain. The President, Prime Minister, Chief Justice, Army Generals, Scholars all are there in Britain and Pakistanis are all worshippers of Britain. You do not hate the British, those who made you slaves. Man always hates them who disgraces us, put shackles in our neck, loots us and generations carry this hatred. But here we will be proud to say that we are slaves since 20 years, others will say I am slave since 30 years. Is there any Pakistani who is not having a desire to go there? Imam Ali (a.s) says is there any free person (Ala Hurran), who leaves a dead corpse for its worthy and not looks at it.
Isteqlal was neither there in the minds of our leader, nor the scholars and politicians. We have forgotten Isteqlal. When the destinies of communities are written then Freedom is one topic, Separation is second topic and Isteqlal is the third topic. We separated and first we were slaves of Britain and then became slaves of America. The desire of slavery tickles so much to us that we have become slaves of disgraceful people like Arabs, those who do not want to make anyone slaves we even became slaves of them. We became slaves of Ale Saud, Arab Bedouins who are themselves slaves. We have separated but did not become free and Isteqlal was not part of our syllabus at all.
Hence Pakistan was made but where is Pakistan now. Are we the peak? Are we the most educated nation, are we a respected nation? You travel with a Pakistani passport across the globe then you will realize where this nation stands. The Pakistani who is frustrated from their own country. They run in flocks in trucks, trawlers and ships. At present there are many countries who have special police to catch the illegal Pakistani who have run away. Why are we running away from Pakistan? We have not made anything ourselves. Even when we make a mosque we take the begging bowl and visit Arab nations begging in their streets. This mosque is a sign of disgrace and worst then Masjid e Zaraar. The mosque of Zaraar was a conspiracy and these mosques, madrasah made from begging are signs of disgrace. You make hospitals, roads from begging are all signs of lowliness, disgrace. That destiny which was written by them in which there was no Isteqlal and we accepted it.
We have one more state that is of Isteklal and not Isteqlal. There is a similar word in Arabic where only Kaaf letter is different. In pronunciation for us it will sound similar because we are Pakistani and our throats are not Arabic. We have been told in Madrassahs to produce Arabic sounds hence it becomes difficult for us to learn. An Arab can differentiate. Isteklal is also from Kalla (different Kaaf). Kalla means to put your burden on someone else. It is there in tradition from Prophet (s.a.w.s) that one who puts his burden on someone else is accursed. Carry your own burden, stand on your feet and every person should carry his own burden. We have learnt this that we have to put the burden on others. If you go anywhere in the world you will find Pakistani everywhere but you wonâ€™t find people from other nations in Pakistan. If you visit Europe you can see Pakistani in every university, colleges and families feel proud about it. They feel bloated those whose children are studying outside. Those who have gone outside Pakistan they donâ€™t even want to return as if they are going to land from sky to earth. They consider those places are skies and are proud that our children are studying outside or going outside to study. They donâ€™t think that what it means; it means that for education of your children you have nothing in your country. For treatment you are going outside, for learning religion you go outside.
This crazy Trump has insulted all the nations who take aids from them and he has done this several times and insulted all the nations except Israel that they are burdens on us. Is there anyone who comes to Pakistan for getting any form of education or learning technology? People have made educational institutes and we become burden on them. The Prophet is saying that those who become burden on others is accursed. Becoming burden is applicable to all, whether an individual, community, group, party. The lesson of Isteqlal was not included at all. When Pakistan was made this argument came up that first we were under guardianship of Britain and was a colony of Britain. We became free from Britain so in whose laps should we go. There were two big powers; one was of Russia and other America. The big leaders were discussing for several months as to whose laps we should go. Thatâ€™s why I said they were traders. If they would have been impressed by Allama Iqbal they would not have discussed this. For several months they argued and got divided into two groups one in favor of going with Russia and other in favor of going with America. At the end the American lobby became successful and the Pakistani Prime Minister went to America and Liaqat Ali Khan handed over Pakistan to America. From here the bad omen on Pakistan started and after seventy years we can see the result of it. We can see the tone of America about their slaves and see the reaction of this nation on the abuses which Trump does day and night on Pakistan. On first January 2018 which is generally the day when the leaders of different nations send New Year greetings to each other; Trump got up and in the first part of his day he started with abuses to Pakistan. What did the people, scholars, schools, media and politicians did against this? Did anyone went to their Embassy? Did anyone even write a column in newspaper? This was the result of seventy years of slavery and dependency. This is all because they have made themselves as burden on others. They took Isteklal instead of Isteqlal. When America said they cannot carry the burden of Pakistan now we move to China to carry our burden.
This was the opportunity that even though even after ruining you for seventy years and now when they (America) want separation then you should sit today on 23rdMarch and make your destiny. Now we should not depend on anyone. This is a tragedy for everyone and not that I am just telling the government. We are all the same. We do not even want to smell Isteqlal. We do not want to stand on our feet, with our own efforts do not want to construct this nation. The same Pakistaniâ€™s who have made the world. Dubai and Arab states were made by Pakistan. The Pakistani are working in various workshops of the world so can they not make Pakistan? They have settled in various universities across the world so can they not make universities in Pakistan? You can see in your nation is there any ruler who is willing to teach Urdu Syllabus to their children. Is there any General, Minister, any officer of government who wants their children to learn Urdu syllabus. When you are yourself taking your generation away from the nation then how can someone think about Isteqlal? We have to go there to study. We have to migrate there and live there.
On 20thJamadi us Saani I have discussed one topic about shame and modesty. We have limited shame, modesty only between man and women but that also ended. Shame, modesty was for the entire life. We should have felt ashamed on everything which we should have done and not done. We consider that women as immodest one who steps out of her home without Hijab. We consider that women as immodest, unchaste who sells her body. She is less unchaste, immodest. The bigger immodest, unchaste are those who sell their nation, community, religion. What do we have to show to others? What have we made? Have we made any education system of ours? Even to learn the basics of religion we send our children to other nations. There is no one here to teach them the basics and no one is ready to stay here. Everyone is a fugitive who all want to run away. This is immodesty by those who only want to sell. They sell to Arabs and America. Now America has said also how much we paid and this taking was shameful and immodesty. In the teachings of Allama Iqbal and Imam Khomeini first there is Isteqlal (independency) and then Freedom. Today the Arab and West nations do not snatch the freedom of nations, they take away their independence. Why there is so much pressure on Iran? This is because they want to be independent, they want to make their own decisions and hence they dislike Iran and want to end it. We have to pay the price for Isteqlal.
23rdMarch is the day of freedom and separation also but now make it the day of Isteqlal. Make the 365 days as days of Isteqlal. Make Pakistan an independent country and independent nation. The Parliament elections are happening as if they are getting animals out from the market. They appoint the chairman of Senate first and then say that his age is less. This way of trading does not develops a nation. That shame, chastity should get developed. I have given this example that in Pakistan the Shiite hates the Isteqlal most. We should stand on our feet with grandeur and like a peak be visible to the world. Do not carry a file to all offices and it is shameful. These religious centers who are smelling of disgrace, by taking help from others. These places are worst then Masjid e Zaraar because here the soul of begging is present. It is not something difficult, it is easy. Develop self-respect, shame and then liking for Isteqlal will come on its own. Do not make yourself a burden on others. Many have run away from hhere. If someone gets martyred in a village and someone has no relation with that person they will make use that as an excuse to get a visa for Canada and Australia.
I was on a Tableegh journey to some other country. One person who knew me came to meet me and said please write a letter for me which states that i have life and property threat in Pakistan. I asked whether this is true; he said no the issue is that without this letter they will not consider me for immigration in this country thus you write as a witness. Should I lie for you to run away from the country? So that you make the sacred martyrs of nation as a means of refuge with these followers of church.
If we had the soul of Isteqlal in us and if we would have learnt freedom also with separation. Freedom does not means separation; it means to remove the shackles and chains of slavery. Freedom gets completed when Isteqlal also comes up and when we stand on our feet and leave the support of others. When the nation is not run on debts. It is astonishing to see the population of those countries on whom we are dependent and look at our population of 220 million. There are certain Arab states is only .5 Million and in Bahrain there are only .8 million out of that 0.5 million are expats. A nation with 220 million is dependent on a country of 0.8 million and we are an atomic power. The talent of this nation which is spread across the world are dependent on small countries like Kuwait, UAE and Ale Saud. We are the 8thlargest populated country in the world. You are in the first top ten of largely populated countries and on whom are you dependent on? France, Britain and Germany all together gets accounted to one province of yours. We are dependent on them; just look at your worth, status. Iqbal says those who could do the Imamat of their era those ancient minds are followers of their era. What tragedy has happened? Why have you got into such disgraceful state? Why we have placed our burden on others? Since 70 yrs we have colleges, universities, madrassahs but a Pakistan wants to study outside. There are hospitals as well but Pakistani has to study outside only. What has got to this state? It is Khauz and we have become a nation of Khaezeen. We are drowned into cricket, media, films, dramaâ€™s, WhatsApp, Facebook, Social media and when we are walking in these gutters ; even if the water is pure you cannot walk inside it then how can you expect to walk in dirty, filthy waters? Journeys are done on highways, roads, streets and on the path of Allah; not in dirty, muddy waters. We have placed our full nation in dirty water and now we are expecting that they will become a good nation. In dirty waters you cannot walk, there is only Khauz.

The others were also drowned in this gossiping, useless works and we also followed them like a flock and got drowned. You should develop Isteqlal; a national shame, modesty and chastity should be developed. We should develop a religious shame and regret on every deprivation as to why we are deprived. Why we are dependent on small things. Our attitudes and mindsets have become like this to somehow get inside some country with whatever possible excuse; we make some calamity as an excuse, or some relationship as an excuse we want to make our place in some other country. This 220 million is not a small population they can govern the entire world. And Allah has given this land also full of bounties. There are materialistic bounties and spiritual bounties in abundance in this nation but what is required is sense and awareness in this nation.
23rdMarch is the day of destiny of our nation. The first fate was written by traders but a new destiny should be written by a sense possessing nation. The inspiration which Allama Iqbal has given; under the light of that we should neither be a slave of someone; or dependent on someone; neither we should be a burden on someone nor we should hold the support of someone else. There is no issue in doing business with the entire world because there is respect. They will take something and give also. China, America will take and give also something to us. IF some of our people go out to study then some of theirs should also come here to study. If the Shias become a model and the historical status of Shiite which is there they should deliver that role. Shia is not a sect that entangles with others. Shiite has a title in entire history. It is the leading group of the entire Islamic Ummah. This journey has started at an international level. Imam Khomeini gave that status to the Shiite and handed over the standard of Islam in the hands of Shia. Every individual of Shia should deliver this role. They should do development of Ummah, nation and community. Make the foundations of this nation. Develop an Education system of the nation and every individual has a role to play. Do a Qayam for this purpose and give salvation to Pakistan from this slavery and make it reach Isteqlal. The output of Isteqlal is the mountain peak which stands out from all communities. If you see from the moon you can see Ketu and Mount Everest. We should do this that when someone looks from the moon on this earth, they should see Pakistan and inside Pakistan also Shiite should be seen. For this we need Gairat, Shame, modesty and only stomach, desires are not enough. We need the education, teachings of our leaders, Imams. Write the destiny for your nation and get this nation out from this disgrace. This is the rights on every Pakistani to get this nation out from where these Khaezeen and traders have taken this nation. Now those who possess Jidd (seriousness) should come out and give an identity to this nation.
On 23rdÂ March we enjoy a holiday and sleep but this is not the rights of the day. May Allah bring that day when Pakistan gets the real Isteqlal, dignity, honor and this nation becomes an esteemed nation and becomes that great nation that when someone even in future looks at communities they should first see the nation of Pakistan. For this we will have to leave Aafat (calamities), leave the ways of flock of sheep and for this a 23rdMarch will come where we will be independent. Then no one should be able to threaten Pakistan, to disgrace the Pakistani nation and the Pakistani nation themselves should not disgrace themselves. They can definitely go outside for studying but as a prestigious nation. This only happens when we stand on our feet and those who stand on their own they are valued. The thought of standing on their own feet is considered as if a crime now. Though we have to pay the price for this, they will punish you; those who want to see you dependent wonâ€™t like your independence. But for the nations this is the destiny.
