Look at the Afghans, during the time of the Soviet invasion.
They were among the poorest Muslims in the world,

and God alone.

Islam is fixed, stable, ordered and disciplined,
and so are Muslims.
- Abu Bakar Bashir

Islam's laws are fixed and that is why Islam is stable.
- Abu Bakar Bashir

They are scared that the BBC or CNN may call them radicals,
so they remain soft instead.
The problem lies there, with the Muslim leaders,
not the Muslim masses.
- Abu Bakar Bashir

Today the Western powers and media want to domesticate us like sheep,
to keep us tame and domesticated.
- Abu Bakar Bashir

You are right, but the weakness does not come from
the millions of Muslims in the world.
They do not mind being radical, they have no fear to
speak out and to protest and to jihad.
- Abu Bakar Bashir

Because Islam in its original form was tough and hard,
not weak and pliable.
- Abu Bakar Bashir

Islam is perfect, there is nothing to be added or changed.

he and his followers were small in number.
- Abu Bakar Bashir

Laws are to be enforced justly but firmly,
with an iron hand.
This is the case anywhere, even in a family.
- Abu Bakar Bashir

What use is revelation or religion if it doesnt change anything?
- Abu Bakar Bashir

The Muslim leaders swallow the advice of the Western
powers and bodies like the IMF and World Bank,
even when it is bad for their countries and they know this.
- Abu Bakar Bashir

But the weakness comes from these Westernised co-opted
Muslim leaders who just want to look good in the eyes
of the West and Western media.
- Abu Bakar Bashir

The Afghans did not have sophisticated weapons like the Soviets did,
but with their faith they defeated a superpower.
- Abu Bakar Bashir

But the leaders of the OIC could not even accept Mahathir's proposal,
yet they talk about respect and honour.
- Abu Bakar Bashir

We have shown that Islam can rule the world perfectly for 14 centuries,
and during this time of Muslim power we did not borrow
ideas like democracy from others,
so why do we need to learn democracy from them now?
- Abu Bakar Bashir

There is not a single Muslim leader today who has the
courage and commitment to defend Islam and Muslims,
they are all in awe of the United States and other Western powers,
and are indebted to them.
- Abu Bakar Bashir

But the West is trying to weaken Islam from outside and inside.
They attack our people and invade our countries from outside,
and they weaken us from within with ideas like secularism,
liberalism and democracy.
This is all designed to contaminate our pure Islam.
- Abu Bakar Bashir

So we want an Islamic state where Islamic law is not
just in the books but enforced,
and enforced with determination.
There is no space and no room for democratic consultation.
The Shariah is set and fixed, so why do we need to
discuss it anymore? Just implement it!
- Abu Bakar Bashir

Our Prophet was a radical too- he fought against the
injustices of his community and challenged the feudal order of his society,
so they called him a radical.
So what? We should be proud of that!
- Abu Bakar Bashir

Arab leaders worry more about making money from the
profits they get from oil and gas that they turn the
other way when Lebanon is being destroyed right next to them.
Their neighbours are being murdered,
but they only make calculations for their own benefit.

Where have you been?

Why live?
Adding one to my count of days, or postponing
a feared death by another day do not inspire me.
I live to experience something new each day -
to learn something new, meet a new friend,
bring joy into someone's life,
feel the wind newly on my skin,
touch a new fear, a new anger,
and with focused intent and good fortune,
find an ample measure of my own joy.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

For as long as I can remember, I've been searching for something,
some reason why we're here. What are we doing here? Who are we?
If this is a chance to find out
even just a little part of that answer...
I don't know, I think it's worth a human life. Don't you?
- the Jodie Foster movie Contact (1997)

Where am I? Who am I? How did I come to be here?
What is this thing called the world?
How did I come into the world?
Why was I not consulted?
And If I am compelled to take part in it,
Where is the director? I want to see him.
- Soren Kierkegaard

Remember, we all stumble, every one of us.
That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand.
- Emily Kimbrough

I can see, and that is why I can be happy,
in what you call the dark, but which to me is golden.
I can see a God-made world, not a manmade world.

Ask why this task is on your to-do list.
Consider discarding those items to which
you are not truly committed.
For the tasks which do speak
to the longings of your own heart,
begin now, today, this moment.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life is serious? Why?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Most of us believe that we have
been betrayed by someone outside of us -
in other words someone has done something to hurt us,
been dishonest or broken a promise made:
some trust in some concept was broken.
Indeed someone may have taken an action
that took only their needs into consideration,
they may have not followed through on a promise made,
and they may have not told you the truth.
But their actions have nothing to do with you
and have everything to do with them.
That's why no one can do anything TO you.
They can take actions that involve you that you may not like -
according to your point of view.
But you are not a victim, no way, no how.
- Sheri Rosenthal

Always question WHY you are doing something.
Is it a free-will gift or an obligation?
That which is done out of a feeling of obligation
is unworkable as a substitute for a gift.
Obligation creates a feeling of resentment on your part,
and evokes resentment rather than gratitude
on the part of the recipient.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Being human, we are imperfect. That's why we need each other.
To catch each other when we falter.
To encourage each other when we lose heart.
Some may lead; others may follow; but none of us can go it alone.
- Hilary Clinton

Ecstasy is our very nature;
not to be ecstatic is simply unnecessary.
To be ecstatic is natural, spontaneous.
It needs no effort to be ecstatic,
it needs great effort to be miserable.
That's why you look to tired,
because misery is really hard work;
to maintain it is really difficult,
because you are doing something against nature.
- Osho

We were given:
Two hands to hold.
Two legs to walk.
Two eyes to see.
Two ears to listen.
But why only one heart?
Because the other was given to someone else.
For us to find.
- Anonymous
