Mother Earth and Our Relationship

What a beautiful name it is for our planet, Mother Earth. More I think of it, more I like it rather love it. I do not know who gave this name but whoever he or she was, was a very thoughtful and wise person. Perhaps there could not be a better name for it. We depend on our Mother Earth for every need of our physical body, almost like ... read more

Human Impatience

Human being is very impatient by nature. He wants quick results for everything and while doing so, very frequently ignores the realities and the laws of nature. Rather than being patient, he strives to pursue the wrong line to achieve the results over-night and thus multiplies his anxiety… ... read more

What is Terrorism?

Generally, the term “terrorism” is associated with killing of other human beings, blasting the buildings or carrying out suicide bombing etc. – but my definition of terrorism is somewhat different. In my opinion, these are not the only forms of terrorism.

I consider every action that violates the legitimate rights of other human beings, snatching even a cent by force, bluffing, bribery and illegitimate gratifications, theft and robbery, hating… ... read more

Internet Ethics – Part 2

Copying material from others’ websites without their permission is quite common all over the world. I have written on this topic earlier. There are lots of people who find it very easy to steal the work of others (with the help of webmasters) and try to show the world that they have written something great. This is highly immoral, intellectual dishonesty and is called theft in plain language. It is said that "locks are for the commoners, not for thieves". I agree with it because those with good moral values don’t steal but thieves don’t care for morals. Is having a website so important that one could stoop down so low? ... read more

Be Happy and Positive

This is quite a common advice that many people give to others. It sounds very nice but is it always practicable for everyone? Practically, happiness may mean different to different persons depending on several factors. Life is not the same for everyone. Nature has not distributed everything equally. Without getting in to the cause and logic of inequality, bitter fact is that hunger, poverty, sickness and above all the helplessness takes away all the joy, happiness and positivity. A person dying of hunger knows nothing other than food ... read more

Speaking, Writing and Criticism

We learn from books and other human beings. That is how the knowledge spreads. Everyone thinks and has ideas but majority does not write and share because general impression is that if you speak or write, some will appreciate, some will oppose and you may have to face disagreements, criticism, mindless and irrelevant remarks and even earn enemies, may be even plenty of them. If you keep quiet, listen and read only, you will have none of it. Since none wants opposition and criticism, second option is preferred ... read more

Hospitality and Guest Treatment

History tells us that in olden days people used to be very hospitable and used to care for the guest as much as they could. In tribal life hospitality used to be part of their culture. Arabian tribes were especially known to be very hospitable. In tribal areas of Pakistan, it is still a part of their unwritten traditions. The guests are offered the best possible food and comfort for as long they stay there. Certain tribes go to the extent that even if their enemy suddenly drops in, he is given full honor and respect of a guest ... read more

Bird Shooting for Pleasure

Birds and animals are also living beings and part of our life. All of them deserve and need our love and kind attention. We should not restrict our kindness to just our families, friends and pets. If you can sense the spirit behind this article and perceive what I am trying to say, don’t shoot the animals. If you are a hunter, please put down your gun because this is no entertainment ... read more

Practical Help and Suggestion

We very frequently come across situations where a friend, relative or a near one opens his heart to us and talks of his problems. That is when the person indirectly asks for help or workable suggestion but mostly we find it very convenient to listen, wish him good luck and walk away ... read more

Friendship and Mutual Respect Vs Prejudice

I visited Louisville KY in last week of August 2015 and met many people at private and public places. Some of them asked questions about Islam, Pakistani culture and customs etc. but without even a trace of prejudice, hatred or suspicion; that was just for information. My religion was not an issue for them and similarly their religion did not bother me. My eating habits were different to theirs but they took special care to avoid what my religion does not allow me to eat or drink ... read more
