What is your objective?


What is your objective?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.   We seek refuge in Allah, the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing, from the incitement of the Shaitaan.  And we start in the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Allah says in the Holy Quran: Chapter 16, Surah An-Nahl Ayat 125: Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and excellent admonition and argue with people in the best manner. Your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Way and who is Rightly guided.
Allah,The All-Seeing, All-Knowing, Knows Best our mission in starting this forum.   We swear by Allah, the All-Mighty, the All-Wise, and Allah is our witness, and Allah Alone suffices to be our witness; that our one and only mission is to invite our brothers and sisters to the true deen of Islam, as revealed to our beloved Prophet Mohamed (saws) in the Holy Quran.   
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imran verse 19: Indeed, Islam in the ONLY right way of life in the sight of Allah.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imran verse 85: And whoever adopts any other than this way of Islam, that way shall not be accepted from him and in the Hereafter, he shall be among the losers.
Allah declares in His Glorious Book that Islam is the only Right Way of life in the sight of Allah.   Anyone who adopts any other way, that way shall not be accepted from him and he will be among the losers in the Hereafter.
Allah says in the Holy Quran in Chapter 67 Surah Al Mulk verse 2: He (Allah) created death and life that He may test you, to see which of you is the best in deeds.
Here Allah states his mission in creating life on this planet earth. We were created and given this short period of life so that we can be tested by Allah Subhanah. At the end of this short test, Allah has promised to gather all mankind on the Day of Judgement and Judge each of us according to our deeds done on this earth. Those who are successful will be awarded the eternal Gardens of Paradise wherein they will live forever. And the ones who fail this test, their abode will be the everlasting torture of the Fire of Hell. In His Mercy and Grace, He sent us the Last Messenger (saws) and revealed the Glorious Quran for our guidance. Now whoever accepts, obeys, and follows the Holy Quran and the Sunnah of the Messenger, and does righteous deeds according to the Quran and Sunnah, he will be the one who will be successful, Insha Allah. The one who rejects these sources of knowledge, and forms or follows any other beliefs and paths, it will not be accepted from him by Allah, and he will be among the losers in the Hereafter.
   
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verse 31-32: Prophet, tell the people, “If you sincerely love Allah, follow me.   Then Allah will love you and forgive you your sins, for He is All Forgiving, All Merciful.”  Also say to them, “Obey Allah and His Messenger.”  And if, in spite of this, they do not accept your invitation, warn them that Allah does not love those, who refuse to obey Him and His Messenger.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 12 Surah Yusuf verse 108: (O Mohamed) tell them plainly, “This is my Way!  I invite you to Allah.  I myself see my Way in full light, and my followers see it too.  And Allah is absolutely free from defect, and I have nothing to do with those who invoke others with Allah.”
Prophet Mohamed (saws) was the Last Messenger of Allah, and there are no more messengers coming after him. Thus it is the duty of every believer to invite whoever wants to listen to reasoning and good caution, to the Way of the Holy Quran. Their duty is only to invite in the best possible manner. Allah has given every human being intelligence and common-sense, and if the invitee, with his own free will chooses to accept your invitation and follow the Path of Allah, fine. If not, he can follow any path he wills, to ultimately meet with his Lord.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verse 110: You (muslims) are the best community which has been raised for the guidance of mankind.  You enjoin what is right, and forbid what is evil and you all believe in Allah Alone.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 78: Exert your utmost for the cause of Allah, as one should.   He has chosen you for His service and has not laid on you any hardship in your deen.   Therefore, be steadfast in the religion of your father, Abraham.  Allah had called you ‘Muslims” before this, and has called you (by the same name) in this Quran also, so that the Messenger may be a witness in regard to you, and you may be witnesses in regard to the rest of mankind.   Therefore, establish the ‘salaat’ and pay the ‘zakaat’, and hold fast to Allah.   He is your ‘Maula’:  what an excellent ‘Maula’ and what an excellent Helper!
The first and foremost duty of every human being should be save himself and his family from the impending Fire of Hell by following the commandments of Allah and His Messenger (saws).  
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 66 Surah Tahreem verse 6: O you who have believed, save yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel shall be men and stones; over which shall be appointed fierce and stern angels, who never disobey Allah’s Command, and they only do as they are commanded!
It is Allah who created us, sustains us, gives us life, ordains our death, and will raise us to life again in the Hereafter. He is indeed The All-Mighty, All Hearing, All Seeing!   Thus He Alone deserves our invocation and our worship. Thus whoever believes in Allah and His Messenger (saws), should call on Allah Alone for all his needs, for it is Allah Alone Who has the power to hear us and answer all our prayers.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 186: And if My servants ask you, O Prophet, concerning Me, tell them that I am quite near to them.   I hear and answer the prayer of the suppliant, when he calls on Me.  So let them respond to My call and believe in Me.  (Convey this to them), perhaps they may be guided aright!
The All Merciful has revealed the Glorious Quran for our guidance, and it is the duty of every believer to read this Message of the Merciful and understand it well, so that he can follow the path as ordained by the Holy Quran.   Contrary to whatever people say, this Quran is easy reading and shows the Path to Allah very clearly.   And our invitation to all our brothers and sisters is to read this Quran with understanding, and then formulate the Way as shown in the Holy Quran.
Allah says in Chapter 2, Surah Baqarah aayat 185: Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down: this Book is a perfect guidance for mankind and consists of CLEAR teachings which show the right way and are a Criterion of the Truth and falsehood.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 16 Surah Nahl verse 89: We have sent down to you this Book, which makes everything plain, and is a guidance, blessing and good news to those who have surrendered themselves entirely.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 43 Surah Zukhruf verses 43-44: So, hold fast to the Book that has been revealed to you, you are surely on the Siraat al Mustaqeem.  The fact is that this book is a great honor for you and your people, and soon you shall be CALLED TO ACCOUNT for it.
This is thus our mission and our sole motive in starting this forum:  To invite our brethren to read and understand the Message of the All Merciful.    We invite you to follow the Path as ordained by the Quran, so that you too may save yourselves and your families from the Fire.    We ask for no thanks or appreciation for this service; our reward is with the Lord of the Worlds.    We invite you so that we may be able to offer an excuse to our Lord on the Day of Judgement, that we fulfilled our duty as muslims, and did invite our brethren and everyone who wanted to listen to good caution.   
May Allah accept our humble contribution in the propagation of the Truth and save us, through His Mercy, from the torture of the Fire of Hell.  Ameen.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
May Allah guide you and us to read and understand the simple and plain words of the Glorious Quran.  May Allah increase our knowledge from the Holy Quran.   May Allah guide us to the Siraat al Mustaqeem.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
Burhan
