Pakistan’s Problems and the Solution

Many people blame Pakistan’s problems on poverty and lack of education. Others on the government. I blame it on the weakness of Eman. This is the root of all problems. This is where problems stem from.

Pakistan has drowned in sin. Pakistanis continue to lead a sedentary existence of listlessness, heedlessness, indulgence in luxuries and pleasures, false pride and vainglory, sin, crime and transgression, oppression and exploitation. They are involved in mutual hatred, enmity, embroiled against each other in court cases and law-suits and competing against each other they spend lavish and large sums of money, involving themselves at times in massive debts accompanied by hefty percentages of interest.

This is the reason Allah has appointed corrupt leaders. These leaders have been appointed due to sins. The only escape from them is through taubah and perfect obedience of Allah’s orders.

Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala said in the Quran – “Verily Allah does not change the condition of people unless they change it themselves.”

In a hadith Qudsi it is reported:

I am Allah, there is no deity besides Me, I am the king of kings and the master of kings, the heart of kings are within My control; when My servants are obedient to me, I make their rulers kind-hearted towards them; when they disobey Me, I turn their rulers against them with anger and tyranny, they then oppress them severely. Therefore, instead of cursing them, turn towards me in remembrance and submission, I will protect you against their tyranny.

Muslims face new problems and difficulties daily. Now and again, reports of untold oppression and barbarism against muslims are received. Their lives and property are destroyed and yet they keep indulging in sins.

Time and again, muslims are crushed by disasters and calamities and their laments, complaints and wailing never ends. When their shortcomings are pointed out to them, they remain ignorant. No one bothers to reform themselves. No one bothers to avoid those destructive sins and crimes that are the direct source of their misery and suffering.

History bears ample testimony to the fact that so long as the muslims continued to uphold the Quran and ahadith in their daily lives, empires crumbled at their feet. Small group of devout Muslims were sufficient to terrorize and demolish mighty forces. Emperors of superpowers trembled at the mere thought of muslims.

Yet these very victors of mighty empires, when they succumbed to comforts and luxuries, discarded the Quran and Hadith, resorted to oppression and cruelty, became power-drunk and arrogant and indulged openly in music, wine and women, fell from the glorious pinnacles of civilization and progress to the abyss of disgrace.

    Why does, India, America and Japan prosper.

    @Kamal: Who said India, America, and countries like China and Japan are prospering? In India, 80 percent of the population lives on 20 cents a day, and not one God damn rich bastard does charity. This is because of lack of religion.

    Millions of prostitutes, millions of child labourers, no education, farmers committing suicide, AIDS, poverty, pollution, no rules, no law. Which prosperity are you talking about?

    Do you know that in the U.S., anxiety pills and anti-depressants are a million dollar business. Furthermore, do you have any idea about the debt of the U.S.? Which prosperity are you talking about? The whole family structure has collapsed, with divorces going through the roof. U.S. society is hedonistic, and materialistic, and that is why millions of westerners have converted to Islam.

    I do not have time or patience to write a detailed reply. If you still think that education is the solution and not religion, then I will write an article on Chowrangi on the subject. I need you to say yes.

    Best Regards.

    Why does, India, America and Japan prosper. Only a well educated man displays such qualities. Pakistan has very less of them. It has hardly to do anything with religion. Its about characters.

    oh — and we need proper governance. Not sitting duck nincompoops

    I’m coming from FATA. I hope MQM gains power in national Pakistani politics

    they are the only ones who represent lower and middle class. Other parties consist of industrialists and corrupt land-owners

    , good state education and health services, travel throughout our lovely resource rich provinces, nationalism, quick efficient and effective justice from the judiciary/courts (and a good appeals system), and less prominence to mullahs, and unity and love will help Pakistan

    cause we are a strong country –we can survive any crisis.

    Walekum Assalam,

    Dear brother, the era of Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W.) lasted for a very long time. At the beginning most people were corrupt but they changed completely. From burying daughters alive to fighting for generations over one camel drinking water from another’s land, they became the Sahabah, the most respected people on earth.

  13. Naveed December 14, 2009 at 6:00 pm #


    Dear brother, I think that you do not understand my question. I copied your sentence from your 3rd paragraph
    ( This is the reason Allah has appointed corrupt leaders.)
    That time was every one involved in corruption during the era of holy prophet ( .him).I hope you can understand.

  14. Mohammad Yusha December 13, 2009 at 8:47 pm #

    @Syed Hassan: Thanks for your comment.

    @Naveed: It was a non-Muslim city back then. Obviously, you’re not going to have a Muslim leader, religious or corrupt.

  15. naveed December 12, 2009 at 4:15 pm #

    Asalam o laikum.

    Dear sister,

    you wrote many things about problems of Pakistan and wrote the message of Quran but i have question to you that what do you think about non muslim of Quresh in MAKKAH during the era of our holy prophet MUHAMMAD (peace-be-upon-him) was the leader of that time??

    Who says there is no feudal in Pakistan. Rural Pakistan is control by the feudals, even in urban areas one can see the people who work hard and other who exploit the situation and make money in the name of Muslim saints or family lands. Our ruling class of so called politicians is from feudals and then industrialist follow them for power in authoritarian society. Law making body-the Majlish Shora, parliament -the senate , national assembly, provincial assembly and district council , every where the members are feudal, indusrialists, drug barons and /or Rtd. corrupt police officers with few Rtd, army officers as well. The writer of the this article and a leading scholar Dr. Aisha Siddiqa is also from feudal class with extra ordinary intelligence. I agree with some people that one should do some thing instead of suggestions. I have done some thing by leaving my home land as it’s hopeless there; unless there is rule of law not the law of ruler and we should follow the rule accordingly. Very simple law of inheritance can change our country’s future. What ever law we follow, Islamic or British- Muslim personal law, the property should be divided accordingly after the death of a person in a reasonable time but what happen in our country- this is the basic problem. If division of property is done by the law, there will be no feudal and if there is no feudal: the country will flourish. See rest of the world specially the developed world where majority people from under developed countries want to come. All the best for the rest of the people all over the world.

    FIVE REGIONAL CITIES OF PAKISTAN should be upgraded with in the provinces in the country. Regional cities of Dera Ismail Khan in NWFP, Gawadar/ Qalat in Balouchistan, Sukkar/ Larkana in Upper Sind, Jehlam/ Rawalpindi and Multan in Punjab province. These regional cities have been ignored by the federal and provincial governments although these cities have their own history, culture and languages.Dera Ismail Khan in south of Pakhtun khwa/MWFP is under seige, Multan/DG Khan in south of Punjab is next target of religious extremists, Sukkar/ Larkana is being ruled by criminals, Gawadar/ Qalat is trouble some. The people of these regions have to travel to provincial capitals for every small issue and requirement of the daily life which should be provided in nearby cities. A good number of population travel to big cities for their survival to earn livelihood as the local feudal own majority land and keep the common man as their slaves. Creation of regional government and upgrading of the regional cities will save a lot of money and time of the poor people of these regions. Circuit benches of the High Courts are already working in these areas and only requirement is the additional staff of different departments involved in additional work at the provincial capitals. The concern authorities should immediately consider to upgrade the regional cities. And immediate attention should be given upgrade/build the airports,TV station, civic center, libraries,hospitals, educational institutes and investment opportunities for Pakistanis living abroad and foreign firms to create jobs in the area as majority population in rural Pakistan do not have enough resources to survive. It’s remind me the condition of pre Islamic revolution of Iran in Shah time when the rural Iran was ignored and the capital Tehran was developed in a way to call it Paris of Middle East with modern life style. Couple of other big cities like Isfahan and Caspian sea was taken care of because of foreign tourists but rural area was ruled by cruel police and intelligence. Then what happen rural population supported the Islamic revolution and moved to Tehran and other big cities later on. The new government after revolution developed, built and upgraded the rural areas of Iran accordingly. A fund to upgrade/build these regional cities in Pakistan should be established by public and private sector and Pakistani government, our foreign friends and Pakistanis living abroad may be asked to participate in this development mission in the country..KHWAJA AFTAB ALI,( former secretary, Iranian embassy, Saudi Arabia,(1975-88) Advocate High Court & I.P.

    Change our self’s to bring revolution

    Dear brothers and sisters I am really confused how to express my felling .But I hope you people will understand. . First I will start with myself. Few months back I had all habits of teenagers. But then some sudden changes come in my life due to some facts. Not going in these changes or facts, it is really hard to explain. So than different things come on my mind for example to help others, change in our people, to bring unity in our self, to die in helping others. That’s a change come in my life.
    Now I want to come on the topic that why we are not able to change our self. We always blame others that he is not doing right. Always blame our leaders. However are we good enough to blame others? Our most common problem is that all are doing bad or wrong, than why should i do good or right. Change never be come through a single person, a big part of society have to come up. It is not to creating a movement. It is just to change yourself initially. As we see around us we are trapped by different cultures which didn’t belongs to us. These foreign cultures really destroyed our society and specially our youth and it will also affect our upcoming generations.
    So it is time to wake up. Is this all what Islam teaches us what we are doing today. How can we say that we are Muslims not one of our actions are of Muslims. The main reason that why we are not able to change our self is that Allah is not with us. We didn’t obey his orders, than why should he help us. Allah says in Quran “ Allah is not friend of those who do injustice and those people will always be in dark “ Now just apply these verse on yourself. Are we doing justice with our self’s? Are we follow the orders of Allah? Is it not injustice with our self? Than how Allah will help us?
    Now come on the conclusion if we want to change our self, than we have to do justice with our self. Follow the orders of Allah, Do prayers, help his creation. That’s how we get changed and also got blessings of Allah.

    Reference to the Islamic history and Pakistan’s independence period, I want to go a step further and will recommend to select/elect every Chief of Army staff as president after retirement and the present Army chief should be be given extra time for his outstanding services at national and international level and all other Corps. Commanders of the Army and COS of Airforce and Navy should be appointed Governors and Deputy Governors of the provinces and regions ( by creating regional governments in all four provinces, 2 in Punjab 1 in each province- these regions already exist based on language, culture and history , such as Saraiki, Potahari, Upper Sind-Sukkar, Dera Ismail Khan in NWFP and Gawadar- Balouch Area. And all additional bureaucrates who love to live in provincial capitals should be transfered to these remote areas of the country.

    These new regions should invite and attract the foreigner and Pakistani origin people to invest in the area to create jobs and eliminate poverty.) This is the only way we can stop further interception/ coup in Pakistan. After all armed forces personnel are well disciplined and organized . And above all represent Pakistan’s diversified population. And it’s leadership do not transfer within family but earned by hard work and talents only. Every second family in Pakistan is represented in the army one way or the other and the Pakistan Army is the only ever lasting popular party-yes it’s an important ruling party other than Bhuttos and anti-Bhuttos, Sharif brothers. With this arrangement no one is loser except few feudals and industrialists, who represent non of the masses in Pakistan.

    We already have a quota system applied for superior services since 30 years and had killed thousands of innocent talented young people, why not try this arrangement for the welfare of the country which will effect none but very few so called politicians who after all deal with generals, behind the curtains. And it’s good to know that supporters of these politician are 500/600 Mafia families who live in 125 districts in Pakistan and provide so called public leadership for national, provincial and local levels. Any restriction to stop them is useless. Recent example of education condition brought their unseen educated women forward in politics. All 8000/9000 candidates in recent elections were from the same mafia group who are the biggest law breakers and around 1000 leading law breakers have been elected as new law makers who will take care of themselves but none. They all are involved in worst kind of crimes on this earth against humanity with the collaboration of junior police officials.An enquiry by a nuetral agency may prove my claim.

    WOULD THE EDITOR PUBLISH THIS LETTER in the larger interest of the nation.

    “i seriously disagree with that statement. most of the arabs stayed corrupt even after the advent of islam. dont you know anything about islamic history?”

    – I said people become good with eman. w-i-t-h. Please read what i say before making comments on it.

    – As far as islamic history is concerned there isn’t enough space here so i wrote a post.

    “bad people become good with eman. Allah sent rasulullah to the worst people on earth. They used to fight over a camel of one tribe drinking water from a lake of another tribe. A fight over this used to go on for generations! But look, how high Allah raised them after they got eman. Allah made them the Sahaba.”

    i seriously disagree with that statement. most of the aabs stayed corrupt even after the advent of islam. dont you know anything about islamic history? thats the problem with the happy-happy version of islamic history which everyone is fed. it gives everyone unrealistic ideas. there was no such thing as perfect sahaba, there was no such thing as a rightously guided khilafat. the hadith were compiled until after 200 years after the prophets death and many hadith contradict each other and are false. dont you know what happened after the prophet died? thre was a civil war and tribalist monarachs otok over the khilafat and spread islam by the sword, there were rebellions there was oppression, there was bloodshed, people who protested against the corruption and decadence were slaughtered and many, many sects were formed.
    were did all the muslim scientists go? havent you ever asked yourself that? they were beaten to death by their own books at the hands of fanatics who did the bidding of their corrupt kings.

    im not talking about happiness,happiness comes today and goes tomorrow. im talking about wealth power and progress. its got nothing to do with the spirit and every thing to do with ambition and greed. you cant have political power based on the laws of god. that is hypocrisy. power is tool which is inherently cruel. those who try to mix religion and power end up defaming their religion.

    as for th allah keeping a poor man poor. how can you know what allah know. how can you know waht allah thinks. its a bit to big headed and arrogant, what you have said. dont you know that life is a test and that poverty and wealth are granted to people as a test. it doesnt depend on eman,it depend on a mans effort and allahs will. how dare you think that wealth is a reward.

  23. Mohammad Yusha February 9, 2008 at 8:22 pm #

    “what my position is that pakistan’s problems are material and material solutions are enough to solve them.”

    – O.K. Let’s say a person is poor. Allah knows that if this person is granted wealth right now he will start drinking, gambling, going to prostitutes, hoarding wealth etc. He will become a slave of his wealth. Not everyone is able to keep a level head after getting wealth. If a person’s heart is filled with the noor of eman then he will use this weath for good. Hajj, umrah, charity, helping others etc.

    “thats because there are more bad people in the world than good.”

    – bad people become good with eman. Allah sent rasulullah to the worst people on earth. They used to fight over a camel of one tribe drinking water from a lake of another tribe. A fight over this used to go on for generations! But look, how high Allah raised them after they got eman. Allah made them the Sahaba.

    “im going for a tried and tested solution while u are advocating something that is not practical”

    tried and tested? Where exactly has this been tried and tested?
    Please let me know. Name me one place on Earth where this trying and testing has brought hapiness.

    – What im saying is not practical?!!!!!! What im saying is from Quran and hadith.

  24. karim February 9, 2008 at 4:56 pm #

    what my position is that pakistan’s problems are material and material solutions are enough to solve them. eman deals with the individual and its not realistic to say that “if eveyone had true eman in his heart the world will be a better place,so we need to promote eman and everything will become fine”.
    thats because there are more bad people in the world than good. and even in people with eman there are sectarian differences.
    what we need to do is what the rest of the world has done. set up an effective system of governance and work towards a greater national interest.

    im going for a tried and tested solution while u are advocating something that is not practical.

  25. Mohammad Yusha February 9, 2008 at 1:53 am #

    Look, get this straight. I am not saying that Pakistan is better than other countries. I AGREE with what you say. Pakistan is in a miserable condition. The reasons that you have counted are also ones I AGREE with.

    The thing is where do these problems come from??

    Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala has sent us on this world for a short period of time to worship him. When a nation submits itself to the obedience of Allah, there will be peace.

    Consider this. If you tell your child to do something and he doesn’t listen what will you do? You will give him a chance or two. Even then if he doesn’t listen you will scold him. Even after that if he doesn’t listen you will be tempted to slap him. You will do all this for his own good. So that he doesn’t involve himself in destruction.

    the early ummayid empire was a corrupt opprerssive monarchy which ruled through the the power of the sword. they where no better than the romans or persian that they defeated. its a myth cooked up through centuries that the early centuries of islam were perfect. they were not. they were bloody times of internal and external upheaval in the muslim world, times similar to what we are facing now.

    did allah throw the world at the feet of the romans because they were obidient? is it allah who is throwing the world at the feet of america, china, russia and india?

  29. Mohammad Yusha February 7, 2008 at 9:11 pm #

    History bears ample testimony to the fact……….

    This is meant to show you the power of obedience to Allah’s orders. When a man runs towards Allah, Allah throws the world at his feet.Allah granted wealth, power and honour because they were practising muslims. Slowly, as they started to indulge in music, wine and women Allah took everything away.

  30. karim February 7, 2008 at 10:52 am #

    Heres where you measured success in terms of empire.
    “History bears ample testimony to the fact that so long as the muslims continued to uphold the Quran and ahadith in their daily lives, empires crumbled at their feet. Small group of devout Muslims were sufficient to terrorize and demolish mighty forces. Emperors of superpowers trembled at the mere thought of muslims.”

    as for the suicides in japan and elsewhere, i dont think that they are that significant. a few suicides a day does not tarnish that fact that their society is better off than ours . and there is crime and depression in every society since no one is perfect. their statistis on crime, corruption and employment are way better than those of any muslim country.

    as for
    “If collectively pakistanis become religious then Allah will grant wealth as he did to the muslims who ruled for 800 years because they were practising muslims.”

    allah does not grant wealth on nreturn for being practising muslims. is your faith based on greed? men who have chosen the path of allah have always been tested with hardship and persecution. look at imam husayn(A.S) or the sufis. if a country wanmts to get rich then it needs worldly smarts to get rich. how do you explain the first world and thoer wealth. are they closer to allah than us that they are richer than us. your sense of faith is materialistic.

  31. Mohammad Yusha February 6, 2008 at 9:03 pm #

    “china and japan and the western countries dont have eman. they are pretty ok. with low corruption,high employement.”

    – high unemployment? There are people commiting suicide every day in Japan, China and the U.S. due to lack of employement.

    “you yourself seem to measure success in terms of empire and conquest i.e wordly power.”

    -Where did i say i measure success in terms of empire and conquest?

  32. Mohammad Yusha February 6, 2008 at 8:41 pm #

    Allah grants wealth when one has a considerable amount of Eman. Then a person will utilize his wealth for good. Hajj, Umrah, charity, helping others etc.

    When a sinner is granted wealth he uses it in alcohol, gambling, prostitutes etc.

    I agree with you. Wealth is needed as it is a great blessing of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala. However, wealth increases problems instead of decreasing them when collectively people have a very weak level of Eman.

    If collectively pakistanis become religious then Allah will grant wealth as he did to the muslims who ruled for 800 years because they were practising muslims.

  33. Karim February 6, 2008 at 12:54 am #

    china and japan and the western countries dont have eman. they are pretty ok. with low corruption,high employement and the thing we all want for ourselves… RESPECT.
    we need worldly solutions for our wordly problems. Eman alone isnt going to reduce our dept, or increase the litracy rate.

    obeying islam will lead a person to a more balanced and content moral life. but it wont make him rich.some streets smarts and hard work is required to get rich. what this country needs is to get rich.

    you yourself seem to measure success in terms of empire and conquest i.e wordly power.
