Who prayed for Israel, Singapore, South Korea, China, USA, Norway, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Denmark, Netherlands to become great countries?
Countries are not built by praying only, countries are built with education, health, technology, merit, Justice through hard work.
Allah has made these rules and He will not break his own rules no matter how hard we pray.
Our Way Forward:
Please stop praying alone for Pakistan. Let’s start working from basics of hard work, honesty, tolerance, merit, Justice & perseverance instead of just praying.
If prayers alone could change the fate of a nation:
Palestine would have been free & Israel would be begging for rights from Palestine.
Pakistan would have been super power giving loans to China.
KSA would have been selling weapons to Israel & America.
Iran would have been landing on Moon.
Egypt would have been leading Film industry ahead of Hollywood.
Syria would have been Hub of world’s research & technology.
Kashmir would have superseded Switzerland in tourism.
Mark Zuckerberg would have been complaining about his visa refusal by Pakistan.
Bangladesh would have joined back and become united Pakistan.
India would have been destroyed with a nuclear accident.
Donald Trump would have been hanged like Saddam Hussain.
Obama would have been teaching at Quaid Azam University as a Professor.
In the End:
Please stop praying alone for Pakistan and start working for Pakistan.
God helps those who helps themselves.
If an Atheist & Muslim jump into a river, only swimmer will survive.
Prayers should come after we have done our job. Muslims usually take, out of context references of prayers, and give an overwhelming impression of prayers as a tool & strategy of becoming successful in life. Entire Muslim community is praying since centuries to destroy its enemies and make the muslims rule the world. Nothing happened, nothing will ever happen. Let’s change the sequence.
Allama Iqbal said and I quote:
Amal Say Zindagi Banti Hai
Jannat bhi Jahanum bhi.
We must pray 5 times in a day to seek help from Almighty Allah but we must remember his rules of granting help.
