Re: FASTING (ROZA): BLESSING OR PUNISHMENT?  
By:Zubair  
Date: Friday, 21 August 2009, 5:26 pm  
 
Thanks to Brother Dr. Shabbir we know that Namaz is not Salat. And the Haj Muslims perform every year has nothing to do with the Haj mentioned in the Quran. Our so-called Imams turned Salat and Haj into worthless rituals, which benefit neither the individual nor the society or humanity. The only beneficiaries of these rituals are our Imams, Mullahs, and Mulvis whose livelihood depends on these rituals. What about Soam? Is it really fasting (Roza)?  
 
In his Urdu Book “Haqiqat Soam” Dr. Qamar Zaman argues that Soam is not fasting. His arguments are based on understanding the teachings of the Quran from within and they are very compelling and forceful. If Soam means fasting, how come five out of six times it is used as a punishment? Further, God claims Soam will make us Muttaqi. Does fasting make us Muttaqi? At the end of fasting we do not see any change in the character or behavior of Muslims who fast during the entire month of Ramadan. They are essentially the same before, during, and after fasting. Why?  
 
If you can read Urdu, please study this book online and comment. Can any brother/sister refute Dr Qamar Zaman’s claim that Soam is not fasting?  
Here is the link.  
 
http://www.aastana.com/urdu/introduction.asp?t=B&id=16  
 
I will try to write a brief summary of the book and post it on the Forum as soon as I get a chance.  
By the way Dr Qamar Zaman has written books on Salat and Haj as well. I did not find much difference between his views and that of Dr. Shabbir’s regarding Salat and Haj.

Objections on “HAQIQAT-E- SOAM”  
By:Zubair  
Date: Wednesday, 16 September 2009, 10:39 am  
 
I agree with Brother Dr. Shabbir. Forum is the best place to discuss these issues, not emails. This is a healthy discussion as long as we respect each other’s opinions and avoid using any insults and degrading remarks. Like Brother Anwer, I do not know Arabic well. That is why it is taking me longer to translate “Haqiqat Soam”.  
 
Here is my opinion about Soam. As I am not a scholar of Arabic language, I cannot go into syntax or semantics of the words or terms used in the verses related to Soam. Hence, my opinion is based on rational approach alone.  
 
I had accepted Dr Shabbir’s view that Fasting in Ramadan was training. Then, I came upon Dr. Qamar Zaman’s book “Haqiqat-e-Soam” and it changed my understanding of Soam entirely. Why did I accept Dr. Qamar’s views instantly? The answer is that his views were rational and they appealed to my common sense. I hope Dr. Qamar Zaman allows me to post a summary of the book on the Forum, so that English readers can learn about his views regarding Soam.  
 
I respect Dr. Shabbir’s views. However, I have a problem with the idea of calling fasting training. If fasting is indeed training, how come we keep repeating it every year? Are we the dumbest people on earth? We continue with the training over and over again and never able to make the grade and graduate. When will the trainees graduate and start applying what they have learned from the training? Those who go to a medical school, eventually, graduate with medical degrees. Then, they start treating the sick and injured. What do the Rozadar do if they ever complete the training of fasting?  
 
We start our fasting training in teens and continue it as we age. Finally, we reach the stage when children start calling us Babay (old folks). But the training continues. We still fail to make the grade. What a shame!  
 
Far from becoming Muttaqi (God Conscious, God Fearing, Righteous, Pious, Truth Seeker or whatever you call him) and establishing God’s Supremacy on the earth, a Rozadar is not even able to do anything for the society or nation. Just take a look at Pakistan. The country is plagued with so many problems. Have any Rozadar tried to tackle even one? The reality is that these hungry folks are preoccupied with thoughts of food and drink from dawn to dusk. A large part of the day is spent planning and preparing foods for the Iftar feast. In one of his posts Dr. Shabbir rightly called fasting feasting.  
 
As a matter of fact people rarely think of fasting as training. Rather it has become the end objective. We are taught that the rituals, such as Namaz, we perform during the “holy” month of Ramadan fetch us multiple rewards. No wonder folks rush to Masjids to perform additional Nafal (nonobligatory) Namaz. They try to complete at least one round of reading the Quran albeit without any understanding. Of course the propelling force behind fasting and its rewards is Hadith, not the Quran.  
 
“Whoever observes the fasting of Ramadan with Imaan and the hope of getting reward from Allah, his past sins will be forgiven for him.”  
 
“Whoever observes night prayers during Ramadan with Imaan and seeking reward from Allah will have his past sins forgiven for him.” (Al Bukhari and Muslim)  
 
Hence, the whole purpose of fasting is to earn rewards and get sins erased from our record books. And there is the lure of Jackpot (The Night of Power) as well. According to Hadith worshiping in that one night can bring us rewards that are equal to 1000 months spent in worship. Now pleas read the Hadith and ponder.  
 
"Ibn Abu Hatim narrates that Mujahid reports that once Prophet Muhammad (saws) mentioned a story of a Mujahid of the Bani Israel who spent 1000 months continuously fighting in the path of Allah (swt). For 1000 months he never laid down his weapons. On hearing this, the Muslims were stunned. On this occasion the Verses of Suratul-Qadr were revealed, wherein Allah (swt) granted the Ummah of Nabi (saws) the gift of the night of Power – a night which is better than one thousand months spent in the worship of Allah (swt)."  
 
Hadith also tells us that Ramadan is a blessing. Sure it is but only for hoarders and profiteers, not for the ordinary people in Pakistan.  
 
Soon Ramadan will fall during the hottest solar month of the year. Assume you are a construction worker working during the day shift repairing the roads in intense heat. You are sweating profusely. If you do not drink water, you will dehydrate and may risk losing your life. Did not God know about construction workers, road crews, and farm laborers who have to work during the day in scorching heat? Dehydration has caused deaths among players during practices as well as army and police trainees. Doctors advise us to drink plenty of water during summer to avoid dehydration. But God tells us to avoid eating and drinking altogether during Ramadan even if it falls in summer. Who is right?  
 
Doubtless, God will never command us to do anything irrational. Misinterpretation of God’s Message is the problem, not the Message.  
 
Unfortunately, Namazi and Rozadar folks have invested too much in fraudulent schemes (Namaz, Roza, & Hajj etc.). It is very difficult for them to realize and accept the fact that all their investment is going down the drain.  
 
Now let us find out how Muttaqi (pious or righteous) the fasting folks are. Here is just one example. This story was told by a “Maulana” in one of his weekly columns for Urdu Times sometime ago. An 85 year old grandbaba got furious, as he thought he might miss the reward of eating Sahri. His daughter-in-law had her period that caused her to spend a little more time in the bathroom. Grandbaba was unable to tolerate even a few minutes delay. His bad mouthing hit the poor lady like a tornado. His obedient son came running and, without checking the facts, struck his wife with the ferocity of a lightning bolt. The grandbaba had been fasting and performing Namaz for at least 65 years. This life long training failed to teach him even simple manners.

Brother Zubair,  
 
Thanks for ‘inaugurating’ the Chapter of SOAM with your logical and rational comments. The topic is highly sensitive. The discovery of SOAM’s genuine interpretation is a very recent phenomenon. It has caused an upheaval of colossal proportions among our religious and learned circles. All credit goes to Dr. Qamar Zaman’s deep insight into the essence of Quranic manifesto. People are jumping up in awe, wonder and disbelief, and some are necessarily opting for retaliation. What an organized deception spread over one-and-a-half millennium? What a deliberate perpetuation of a worst kind of inhuman punishment over the poor dumb masses? So that they can be kept hungry, deprived, by despotic rulers, under cover of religious dogmas.  
 
Moreover, Dr. Qamar Zaman’s replies to Mr. Ansaari of Karachi, which were laced with all the semantic depths of Arabic language and grammar, have proved most convincing and do not seem to leave much space for further argumentation or debate.  
The style of Mr. Ansaari was that of sidetracking and opening up a new issue in each new letter, without conceding defeat on the running topic.  
 
I still hope the folks would feel free to post comments.

Dr. Qamar zaman sahib/Aurangzaib bhai regards,the true interpretation of Quraan has been reveald and almost every rational thinker (if say ahl e kitab) will appreciate Dr. Qamar's real approach to pleading islam.I think every "mazahb" will confront this true islamic idiology. Majarity of "anti mazhabi" would listen to this real fact. So instead of confronting with such a religious peoples ,why should not we shift our focal point toward afore said peoples(many NGOs working for the betterment of mankind , UNO and other welfare states).To assure them that ,what they are doing ,for the betterment of mankind resemble with Quranic teaching and you are muslim, ur stuggle to impliment this nizam is called SALAT,your congrigation in this respect is HAJJ,ur training to deal with insergencies if happend is SOAM and same for ZAKAT etc.I mean all their good doings which seems according to theQuranic instruction and terminologies used, should be appreciated and have to make them realise ,that u r muslim due to ur peacefull mentality and according to the true Quraanic interpretation . If some body find any way and work hard, to conway this message to above said peoples,they might believe that the Quraan is the DIVINE BOOK.I hope the time will come when this holy book will be the only reference book in UNITED NATION.

ill post this article written by Aidid Safar  
 
Fasting In The Quran?  
(August 25, 2007)  
http://aididsafar.com/fast.html  
 
Year in and out, the followers of the Arab religion perform the rituals of going hungry and thirsty in the ninth month of the fallacious Hijrah calender - Ramadan.  
 
This month-long ritual of abstaining from food and water from dawn to dusk in the so called month of 'ramadan' is said to have been ordained by the God in His revelations - The Quran.  
 
The ramadan ritual is based upon the Arabic word "syiyam", which has been translated and defined as fasting (as in not eating and drinking). Upon careful and detailed study of the relevant verses, it revealed that a mistranslation has taken place in the Qurannic verses of Chapter 2 (al-Baqarah) verses 183 - 187.  
 
An ad-verbatim re-translation of the said verses was undertaken to uncover those word/s, which were obliterated, or smeared by translators and conspirators alike:  
(note: the Arabic word 'syiyam' is purposely left untranslated)  
 
2:183 O you faithfuls, "asshiyaamu" is programmed for you, as it was programmed for those before you, so that you are observant.  
2:184 A few specific days, therefore those who fall ill, or on assignments, so schedule it on other days. And for those who find difficulties in doing it, substitute the feeding of a poor person. Hence, whoever works goodness, so it would do him good, and that you "tasyuumu" is better if you know  
[2:185] manifest heat which was sent within it, the Quran a guidance for the people, and explanations from the guidance, and the criterion. Therefore, whoever amongst you experiences the manifestation shall "yasyumhu". And those who are ill, or on assignments may therefore, account an equal number of other days. God wishes convenience for you, and He does not impose hardship upon you; and so that you could fulfill the schedule, and you shall glorify God for guiding you, so that you be appreciative.  
2:186 And when My servants ask you about Me, I am always near, I respond to the call of any caller who calls on Me. Therefore, they shall respond to Me, and be faithful to Me, that they may be guided.  
2:187 You are permitted during the nights of "asshiyaami" to mix with your women. They are your confidantes, and you are their confidants. God knew that you have betrayed yourselves, and therefore He redeemed you and pardoned you. Henceforth, mix with them, and seek you of what God has programmed for you, and savour* it until its clear for you as that of a white thread distinguishable from a black thread is apparent. Then fulfill "asshiyaama" to the night. And you shall not mix with them whilst retreating in the institutions. These are the bounds of God; therefore you shall not be near them. God thus clarifies His revelations for the people, that they become observant.  
A reading of the above re-translated verses placed "syiyam" in its proper context, and paints a somewhat different picture than what is currently portrayed in the Arab religion. I will not try to expound, or define the Arabic "syiyam", but rather I would leave it to you (for the purpose of this exercise) to determine it for yourself as to what it is.  
 
However, some important questions arise from the above verses:  
 
Where is the command line for the prohibition on eating and drinking?  
 
A prohibition is usually imposed on a serious matter, especially when the nature of an action/inaction poses grave consequences to the doer or persons around. The prohibition will usually (in any language) be proclaimed in very clear plain words, not metaphorically, and never in an ambigous manner so as to create confusion on the matter. The commands would usually begin with "You shall not", "You are prohibited from...", "You shall stop...", or "You shall refrain from...", and in this case we were unable to detect any such prohibitive commands in the verses pertaining to eating and drinking.  
 
*[There is a phrase "Wakuluu waasyrabuu", which literally is "And eat and drink..." though, and which is a metaphor for 'savour*' which, in this instant is in the context of mixing with your women.]  
 
It is only prudent to also note that in 2:187:  
 
"...then fulfill "asyiyaama" to the night (ila llaili)..." is being mistranslated in mischief by all translators as "...untill the night..."  
 
Hence, "syiyam" whatever one makes it out to be, is to be performed at night and NOT in the daytime! Anyway, the word day, or daytime is not even present. This mischief moulded the form of fasting that you get today in the Arab religion.  
 
Should "syiyam" be defined as fasting (not eating/drinking), and now that we read it as to take place at night...what's the big deal? People do sleep at night (at least most people and some animals do), don't they? And it looks like its being done naturally and unwarily by everyone and some animals on Earth. Sleep and therefore, no food and water, and the fast is done!  
 
Why would you then need a special dedicated month for that? Is this some kind of a practical joke the God is pulling on man? No. I don't think so.  
 
Well...come Ramadan, what you will see in Saudi Arabia, and most of the other Arab countries is that, they stay the fasting nights awake, drinking and consuming food like gluttons. And guess when do they sleep? Bravo! No prize though for your correct answer - they sleep all day (err...and fasting, of course) until before dusk! Transforming themselves into nocturnals is a perfect solution don't you think, for an otherwise daunting task to stay 'alive' under the spells of hunger and thirst of daytime? Now this is a joke! The Arabs are trying to pull a fast one on their little god!  
 
And did you know that if they are at war during this time, they would negotiate with their advesaries for a pause in fighting for a month-long cease-fire, and to be continued after that? I'd be damned if I'd agree to that and missed the opportunity to wipe them little devils off!  
 
My point and question is, isn't anyone aware of the Arabs and their idiosyncracies?  
 
The current fasting for one month in the month of Ramadan, is also inconsistent with the Quran, as the verse stated "ayyaaman ma'duudatin..." (2:184), which means 'a few specific days'.  
 
"shahru ramadhaana..." (2:185) is mistranslated as 'the month of ramadan'. The quran lexicon defined "ramadan" as 'intense heat' and is not a proper noun. Hence, the Arabic word "syahru" here, in context would, rather appropriately be 'manifest', which is also another definition of "syahru" . Re-translated to "manifest heat".  
 
Insisting that "syahru ramadhaana" is the month of Ramadan of the Hijrah calendar, will pose a reconciliation problem with "ayyaaman ma'duudatin". Because, it will then mean "fasting a few specific days in Ramadan (and at night)"?  
 
Further reading of other relevant verses might add more light to what actually is "syiyam", perhaps presenting something slightly different contextually. Chapter - Maryam, verses 25 - 29 :-  
 
19:25 And shake towards you the palm tree, it will drop ripe fruits.  
19:26 So savour* it, and relax, and when you see anyone, then say, "I have pledged to the Almighty a "syauman"; therefore I shall not converse, today to anyone.'"  
19:27 She went with it to her people, carrying him. They said, "O, Mary, you have committed indecency".  
19:28 "O sister of Aaron; your father was not evil, nor was your mother unchaste."  
19:29 Hence, she pointed at him; they said, "How could we converse with the messiac (Mahdi) infant?"  
The Hungry From the above verses it is easy to figure out what Mary was saying, and what her actions were in keeping with her pledge. Was she 'fasting' in the ordinary way?  
 
In light of the above, perhaps its time to free ourselves from mental bondage by igniting our intellect on a re-evaluation excercise of everything that was defined for us. This is simply that little exercise to do just that. Who knows what will turn out, maybe instead of doing what is not ordained by the God, but by some idiots, we would instead be doing the opposite, a something good perhaps, and which would serve more purpose and meaning to our lives and the people around us, such as feeding the hungry, or giving aid to the less fortunate.  
 
Define, do not be defined.  
 
"We did not give them bodies that required no food, nor were they immortal."  
(Q21:8)

Qamar Zaman, Aidid Safar, Saim Bakar By:Dr. Shabbir  
Date: Sunday, 20 September 2009, 2:04 pm In Response To: Re: God Almighty Himself Answers Your Questions (Umar) Dear betay Umar, AA  
 
I might be the only one on the Forum to know that you are just a youngster in your 20s. You keep astonishing me with your marvelous intellect and meticulous articulation and expression, Ma-Sha-Allah!  
 
ALLAH KI DAIN HAI JISAY DAY  
MIRAAS NAHIN BALAND NAAMI  
 
Dr. Qamar Zaman has been shunning my probing questions on email for nearly one week now while I have proceeded with my R&R (Research and Reflection) in the meantime. A life-long student won't rush with anything, so I have not dismissed SAUM yet.  
 
THE FIRST CLUE: Dr. Qamar Zaman advertises himself as an M.D. while he is no doctor of any kind. His work on NAMAAZ, SAUM and HAJJ is by no means original.  
 
SECOND CLUE: Many brothers and sisters on the forum might know that: The fake names AIDID SAFAR and SAIM BAKAR from Malaysia wrote a book a few years ago, ARAB CONSPIRACIES AGAINST ISLAM and they had been misleading Muslims for about a decade. They are reported to be in a Malaysia prison at this time for copyright infringements.  
 
http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=saim+aidid&fr=yfp-t-501&toggle=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8  
 
THIRD CLUE: Although this gang might be right at places, "Dr." Zaman seems to have plagiarized his conjecture "work" from the other two. A man identifying himself as Dr. Qamar Zaman from Lahore spoke to me yesterday. But the background noises divulged the reality as Bangkok and the man could hardly utter one correct English sentence. He spoke fluent Punjabi though and hung up quickly.  
 
FOURTH CLUE: Why and where are they hiding? Qamar is supposed to be in Lahore but I think he lives in the West. They should at least announce their phone numbers and return phone calls. If they are conducting intellectual JIHAD for the UMMAH, fear must not enter the equation.  
 
Their work so far:  
 
ANDHAY KO ANDHAIRAY MEIN BARI DOOR KI SOOJHI  
 
They seem to have some valid and reformative points but not sufficiently straightforward and convincing reasons to demolish SAUM.

Dear brother Mohd. Areeb,  
 
I have already read the above comments in the ourbeacon forum. In keeping with the policy of non-interference and minding one's own business, I did not retaliate.  
 
Being a close associate of Dr. Qamar Zaman for many years, I know and can authoritatively confirm that the nonsense uttered by brother Shabbir Ahmed about Dr. Qamar is a pack of blatant lies. Shabbir Ahmed has proven himself to be an ego-centrist and a foolishly haughty person.  
 
I attribute such qualities to him only because he has just lowered himself in my esteem. I have been a fan of his for abt. 20 years and have been xeroxing his books fanatically for distribution among the masses. So high was his stature in our Quranic circles, that we took him as a super Quranic scholar, a super hero.  
 
Are these words from the mouth of such a scholar of high repute? Can a Quranic scholar, or student, lower himself to such stinking depths? To become personal, and then utterly abusive and slanderous, without having a fraction of proof against a righteous person, portray a sickening mentality.  
 
Please compare both the personalities. Shabbir and his accomplices have showered abuses upon Dr. Qamar many times up till now. Dr. Qamar has not said or written a single word of retaliation against this haughty Shabbir Ahmed.  
 
Dr. Qamar has had contacts with Shabbir Ahmed several times during his trips to States and has conversed with him in the spirit of brotherhood and cooperation. Shabbir Ahmed has never acknowledged this fact in his writings and still continues disgorging fire of hatred against him. Why? For no apparent reason!  
 
If two Quranic interpretations by two different people do not match with each other, is that enough reason for one of them to become a spit-fire and become devoid of all decency and politeness? Isn't it a problem of psychology?  
Doesn't brother Shabbir Ahmed need a thorough psychoanalysis? Is that a Quranic attitude in any respect?  
 
Anybody can imagine what service to Quran that guy must be doing with a filthy tongue like that? I never wanted to be direct and straightforward or be open on this topic. It's only that you asked for my comments and it was improper not to answer.  
 
God bless you.

(From DUAL ISLAM, translation of "Dou Islam" by Dr. Fazil Ghulam Jeelani Barq by Shabbir Ahmed, M.D.)  
 
What is the Mullah?  
By Ghulam Jeelani Barq  
 
By this term, I do not mean to insult men of true knowledge of Islam, and not even any particular person (s).  
 
Mullah is a specific mentality with some telltale signs:  
 
He is extremely closed-minded, has little tolerance for a follower of another religion. He hardly tolerates beardless Muslims, and belittles those who study the western sciences, or those who wear the western clothes.  
 
He is a staunch enemy of the Mullah in the neighborhood Masjid and takes great joy in denouncing people as Kaafir (or N2I).  
 
He self-invites. To please his followers, he dispenses easy recipes for achieving Paradise. He knows little about history and current events and nothing about science.  
 
The Mullah is extremely arrogant despite being thoroughly ignorant. He is totally disabled from engaging in a rational dialogue and takes delight in vain argumentation.  
 
He is a worshiper of the dead Ulema and "Imams" and reviles anyone critical of the dead Mullahs. He is quick-tempered and least tolerant. He displays himself as a "man of God" by his weird appearance and attire.  
 
He always keeps double standards for himself and others and is a frank violator of human rights. He would easily leave a hungry baby or the seriously sick elderly to ‘perform’ his ritual Namaz. And he keeps announcing his Namaz and Fasting.  
 
The Mullah has very twisted, cruel, lewd and derogatory beliefs about women, and abuses them without fail whenever he can. Mullahnis like to get abused by their husbands to attain paradise!  
The Mullah's ‘knowledge’ is good for neither this world, nor for the Next. And so on.  
 
[Shabbir’s definition for identification is simple: Anyone who PREACHES the non-Quranic beard and Hijab is assuredly a Mullah/Mullahni.]

Thank you aurangzaib sb. I was shocked when i read such words from a quranic scholar about dr qamar sb.

Brother mohammad Areeb regards,the rationalist always analyse any matter by using his reasoning faculty and logics, he does't runafter the personalities.In case of DEEN E ISLAM to find out the factual position of any perticulor matter,we must restrain ourselve up to two main references,1st the QURAN 2nd the LAWS OF NATURE..If any body who soever is proving his ideology by using above said references and with his rational approach(God given wisdom) then we should accept his elaborations,or correct him with better logics and quranic references.Dear Areeb i hope you found the Dr. Qamar zaman's research at many topics very appealing and convincing,if yes, then don't care about any one's sayings

Dear All Salams and blessings,  
 
I was at a place where I did not have the internet so there was no possibilty of replying to the rubbish and slaunder which came out of some certain personalities mouths regarding dr.Qamar and Haqiqat e Saum. I am the one responsable for "thrusting" the book onto ourbeacon forum, because I had just discovered the site and was in that thought that here are some intellectuals and a scholar who would welcome a new interpretation.... But lo was my disappointment when the nastiness started and the man whom I thought was on the forefront of intelectual thought, fell in the gutter along with his so called interlect and his deceptions became obvious for all to see...  
 
There was a promise, a so called apology, but still we see that any reference to dr.qamar is pushed away as a "misguided" agenda. Never ever think that any person in might or power from ourbeacon will ever spread or accept the translation or thought from aastana.

Salam,  
 
Dear brothers  
 
I am very glad to read Dr Qamar book about Soum. I have been reading Quran for last couple of months and only have been listening G.A parwez Audio lectures. The only thing my heart was not satisfied was with the Soum explanation. But this book has clearly opens new door of thinking.

Dear All, Thought process for Ramadan..........  
 
The moment we are convinced with fixed law of nature and concept of God its for very obvious that rituals are not permitted……  
 
Lets try to discuss this topic based on simple logic understanding. Islamic laws are universal this is what we claim as a muslim from any sector or any school of thought within any sector.  
 
Salath and ramadan as per ritual based conventional mythological ideology are based on position of sun ( day and night ). Now considering universal claims forget bout universe which constitute millions of galaxies and each galaxy consisting millions of solar system and each system having planets.  
 
Our Earth might be microscopic in comparison with universe. Even for this small planet these two Namaz and roza which are based on position of sun doesnt fit as Global laws.  
 
I believe everyone who is bit aware of geography knows how day and night behave at north pole and north America. For example sun might take 5 to 6 days just to rise or set ( remember as per geographer of Islam (Mulla's), its HARAM to do sajda while sun is rising or setting ) . Now those claims of universal laws are not fitting in microscopic planet .  
 
Ramadan today, a month where in all muslims get into hibernation like bears. Those who survive on ancestral properties, those who own business and those who do nothing have license to sleep all day. The most self acclaimed pious among these wake up at 1 pm to offer zohar run to mosque with a sleepy face.  
 
Next group they wake at n'th minute before Zohar and offer namaz. As we move on a group who dont mind missing one namaz outta 5 in a day sleep till asr or n'th minute of asr.  
 
Last but not the least who wake up with a new alarm called siren to break their fast which they started just before sleeping in the morning.  
 
Those who are employed poor guyz are most effected by this ridiculous ritual. They cant sleep all day as they have to be at office at any cost, if they dont reach office then it would be Ramadan for his family until he gets a new job( smiley ). Somehow these poor white collar working sector manage for few days with the heat of ramadan and surrender after few days by applying sick leaves, privilege leave and leave without pay all possible modes of leave which they can apply.  
 
Poor people let us not discuss about them as whether it be ramadan or any month their routine wont change as anyhow they get to eat only one or none times. Infact the water ( Zakat ) which flows to wash sins of rich and a luxury tax which they pay as a duty gives poor a month to eat fruits and healthy food which they appetite is not habituated to. I think it might take few days for their stomach to digest this healthy food and fruits.  
 
 
Above discussion is of those who are muttaqi and are of first saaf in religion. I wont dare to discuss bout others who are not so muttaqi.( Those who keep a dull face in social network and eat, smoke freely when no one around......)  
 
 
Lets see what effect this month has globally. Muslims work only for 11 months and others work of 12 months. A beautiful loss of 1 month, Until they get back from hibernation their Business market is hijacked or exploited . Capitalist extract huge amounts from muslims in name of shopping and needs of ramadan as they are producers and suppliers and muslims customers ( bakra ) . Already a group which is using only half of their work force ( islam me ladki kaam karna mana hai ) lose out on another month and a part of their saving of the year.  
 
Note : And Law says you be righteous and become saviors, Nourisher, guard of humanity. And it says if you are on right path you will be supreme else those who work better than you will supersede......Result speaks loud and clear.  
 
Thanks,  
Mubashir Syed.

jis paas roza khol ke khaane ko kuch na ho,  
roza agar na khaaye to naachaar kya kare?  
____  
the one who has nothing to break his fast with,  
what else can he do but be constrained to ‘eat the fast’?

Aoa, dear sir I went through your book and found it ineffable.
