!20 Square Yards House and the HQ
120 Square Yards House and the HQ
We have become so passive to virtue that we call even the moral, immoral. We hear from the TV talk show of Javed Chaudhary April 7, 2010 with his pixyish look say, the Wadera Shahi politicians have acres of sprawling houses and that MQM Chief Altaf Husain has only a 120 square yards house called Nine Zero (90). This is trueand also that all the top men of the country have to come there, and all the workers of the party have to assemble there to listen to the addresses of Altaf Husain from London on telephone but he still has that 120 square yards house. And though it must be very inconvenient to all, but Altaf Husain perhaps likes to brand his party with the symbol of simplicity and purposely sticks to that small house, though the need is of a bigger house is paramount. The MQM rather than facilitate others with a bigger house prefers to humble them on their visit, receiving them at the small house. This is contrary to the norms of hospitality when the host must be at his best, honouring the guests according to their station. What stops MQM from buying neighbouring houses and extend their HQ, when they have means at their disposal.
Let them bestir conscious flexing of muscles for achieving growth and dumping staleness. This could be boon to the inhabitants there who will find a better complex of buildings to live in, and also listen to the Jalsa address, as a boon. The MQM also has a choice to move out altogether from there to some new place spacious, with wide approach roads.
The hospitality that God spread out and extended His facilities to receive His guest in the Meraj was spectacular. This was in opening the venues of the vastness of the Sadratul Muntaha and then God was drawing Him close to the Prophet at a distance of two bows to honour him. And to make him comfortable to talk to Him, He SWT adapted the familiar voice for the Prophet of God of the Wali of God Hazrat Ali Ibn-e Abi Talib Als. And to let him travel in comfort He sent the fastest and the smartest Burraq for the journey from the stable of the Burraqs. So there is the guideline to receive guests and make them comfortable and the 120 square Yard house is nothing but a tiny Saqeefa.
And the idea of the MQM to diminish overlords and create barons and the landed property owner abolished to be naught is another kind of extremism. A class of the affluent are the cultural heritage and the guarantors of civilisation, and though prospering isolated and rooted, they must be protected. They have attained their superiority in status through some distinction, some through literary excelling, some through piety and piousness, some through bravery and valour and it is cruel to snatch it from them.
The Hadees of the Prophet SAWW is that: That Muslin is fortunate who has a pleasant neighbour, a spacious house and a fast moving means of travel at his disposal.
Javed Chaudhary is the TV Anchor and he opened his talk criticising the owners of large costly cars, targeting the poor MPs. He has ignored the Islamic practice to show gratitude to God and own comfortable fast cars, and wear suits and good dresses and eat well when prosperity touches your capricious being. And this practice is for advancing the culture of the era and stimulating economics.
The Prince of all the Muslims - the Grandson of the Prophet Mohammad Mustufa SAWW, Imam Hasan Als, dressed well, preferred sumptuous meal himself and gave Dawat – the celebrity dinners to poor and gave in charity as much as the entire belonging of his house and did the luxury of doing twenty five Hajj all on foot. The horse was carried by the groom walking behind him. The style of the Prince of Islam is an all time measure for the conduct of the Muslims. But look how the arrogance of the Saudi regime is treating him where his is resting in his grave in the Jannat al Baqi, not even facilitating the Zire – the pilgrims visiting the grave of this Imam allow them visit from a close distance, because it is against their lizard Saudi belief to visit the graves. And little they know of life that it is against the nature of good mannerism not to visit the worthy dead and thank them for their contribution in the uplift of the society. Even Aristotle said if you have problem not solved come to sit beside my grave and the solution of the riddle will appear in sight.
And God of justice and their own deliberations not placating the admirers of the Prince of Islam by letting them visit him from a close distance will not forgive them for the neglect of the rights of this magnanimous Imam and the rights of the humanity travelling to the Imam, but there barred by the Saudi clergy to visit the Imam.
The Chinese Tao wisdom to taking no action contrary to the nature, said, let the people be corrupt, let them generate money, but let them give in charity, sometimes as much as their entire bank account. And corruption is a vague term, can you call commission a corruption. Does this mode of payment not exist? It’s not the ten percent commission; it’s the morality behind it. The commission should be taken only when Halal. And let the commission taking person decide its positivism. The fundamental principle is that no one is hurt if this commission is taken. And let the Prince do his business while doing his Royal duty, and the doctor the private practice while paid for his service by the university hospital, and the politician earn a commission if his incentive vouches for it and he finds it is Halal. Let us protect each other, pamper and praise each other. Let the wealth generated and property shaped be shared by each other, through appreciation, good wishes and make the world an island of bliss and not of craftiness and disdain.
The affluent rich if they have means must travel in expensive cars and eat well and dress well and give in charity, the strongest thing God has created for man to make use of and be benefited from.
And let not Javed Chaudhary spread dismay and gloom by crying foul he sees at every nook and corner.

Taoism influenced the land of Japan, Korea, Vietnam and Taiwan and dated back from 403 BCE – 221BCE and all these countries have a vigorous society. And there is no misconstruing and misinterpretation of religion to produce Taliban.
