Pakistani, you think?

The Islamic Republic of Pakistan. It makes us feel proud, doesn’t it, when we hear that? Adrenaline rushes through our veins as we see the Pakistani flag unfurled. What about when we see the Iraqi or the Syrian flag unfurled? No, we don’t feel proud then, that’s not our country. This is ours, we got our independence 67 years ago, we’re happy. But Jinnah didn’t build Pakistan so we’d be confined to its borders; he designed it so we could have a base from whence to work for the entire ummah. To not be afraid of opening the borders and stretch them as far as they would go to shelter anyone who needs it. Jinnah’s idea was not nationalism, it was identity.
About nationalism the Prophet (PBUH) said, “Leave it, it is rotten.”
Why not be independent from these chains we’ve created, crush these divisions. That’s the vision Iqbal had, Jinnah strove for. We’ve achieved independence from the Hindus; let’s now aim to achieve independence from borders. We don’t need them, and we were fine without them.
            We’ve been given a rare chance,
            Our power to enhance,
            God gave us land, He made us free,
            To carve out a greater destiny,
            We’re at the station; it’s time to set out,
            Our purpose, our aim, to shout,
            Don’t confine yourself to invisible cages,
            Jump out of these man-made stages,
            Anywhere, everywhere, we stay one wall,
            Each brick adds to make us tall,
            God’s soldiers have no boundaries,
            Look inside, you’ll find the keys,
            Break free from these self made chains,
            You’ll feel relieved from many pains,
            We don’t have Pakistan for no reason,
            To do nothing now would be treason,
            There’s still independence left to fight for,
            At the end, we’ll win this war,
            This state wasn’t achieved for us to sit down,
            We still need to get the diamond to our crown,
            Let’s strive for freedom once more,
            It’s the need to our innermost core,
            Reach out to Syria, Palestine, Libya, Kashmir,
            Pakistan is the name of no fear.

    • Yes definitely I would love to do something like that but the thing is we have to connect to the masses, the normal folks. Because the majority of the population are those folks. We have to speak to them, but first we need to root out common vices. For example, staring! We have to tell people to stop staring because not only is it unislamic but also extremely indecent. So yes, I’m all up for it, but we have to start at this level to bring the people’s conscious to the level we need it to be 🙂

  2. Hmm..What was I thinking sis that if we could provide shelter to the victims of these places with safety then we could easily preach them What Islam wants from us and this act could help “STOPPING” terrorism.We don’t need to conquer countries but we have to guide people towards Allah… I hope u r getting my point…If possible give me your mail id..So we could disicuss further.
