what is ataz zakat

Brother Laiq Ahmed,  
Since no member has come forward - regrettably - to answer this simple and straight-forward question, I may take the initiative, though reluctantly, to elaborate this frequently used Quranic term.  
 
Zakat is interpreted by authentic Arabic lughaat as ‘means of sustenance, nourishment and development’. The Quranic term ‘Aatu az-Zakaat’ is an order from Almighty to provide, as a mandate, the means of sustenance, nourishment and development to the people. This order is directed towards the authority that is in power in the form of a Kingdom of God – Hukumat-e-Ilahiyyah. This divine order is often associated with the order “Aqeemo as-Salaat”. Both orders are given to the authoritative body of an Islamic State, because it is possible only on a state level to enforce the obedience of Allah’s manifesto (Aqamat-us-Salaat), and provide the means and resources of sustenance and nourishment to all the population (Aata az-Zakaat).  
 
In No.2 Islam (N2I) however, this mandate has been turned upside-down. The despotic rulers are absolved of all such duties. And their duties have been superimposed upon the innocent public after changing their form and substance in the opposite direction. Now people are forced to offer Namaaz (instead of Aqeemo as-Salaat, by rulers), and again the same people are forced to pay Zakaat @ 2 ½ percent on their savings (instead of the establishment of a welfare system for people, by rulers).  
 
This is how I understand it from Quran.  
God bless you.

dear sir Aurangzaib,  
I think al-salat ( following of the quran ) is upon every muslim according to his capacity  
I disagree with you to some extent in"This order is directed towards the authority that is in power "I think that this order is not only directed towards the authority that is in power but towards every muslim according to his capacity

I think iqamat/aqama/aqeemu/aqem( establish/set up ) also means to countinue,to keep on as muqeem means countinuous/etarnal so then iqumat-al-salat would mean to establish/set up/start/form n countinue the following of the quran  
I think al-salat ( following of the quran ) is upon every muslim according to his capacity

salama hafiz sahib,  
 
there is indvidual as-Salat,, and there is political as-Salat..  
same with as--zakat, which means making your self pure..  
when the state has set up the welfare system , there will still be ways , ,, ZAKAT means also.. Sadaqah,, where indivduals will go out into the world and give to the needy who do not have a welfare system.. they will spread their knowledge of Quran.. as in Saum and also spread their wealth.  
just an addition to aurangzaib bhai , who explained it beutifully..

My dear Abdullah,  
 
Peace.  
To have a difference of opinion on some minute details of our comprehension is of no importance so long as we agree on major issues of divine guidance.  
 
How a divine mandate or manifesto will eventually be put into practice is actually an issue that only the authoritative body of a community (Government, or a movement leading to a government) can decide. Presently we can only speculate according to our mental capacity.  
 
The order Aqeemo as-Salat may have been directed towards both the public and the authority, but it is enforced as a discipline only by a government. No individual or a private group has the power to promulgate it over a nation. The Ayat 41 of Sura Al-Hajj seals any further argumentation in this respect.  
 
Ahmadis or Bahais, as you quoted for an example, are minority social groups and off-shoots from Islam; and are able to enforce their disciplines, partly, among themselves only. And you must know, they are no divine disciplines, but intriguers and agents of BRITISH COLONIAL POWER. They are still sponsored by the White Samraaj and work on its agenda. They are not equal divine religions and cannot be quoted in comparison to Islam.  
 
Judaism and Christianity are parallel disciplines and can be quoted in comparison to Islam.  
They both were enforced when eventually their flag-bearers came into power and authority.  
Christianity came in the limelight and was enforced once again on a larger scale only when Caeser Constantine adopted it as a State Religion in probably the start of third/fourth century AD. And Judaism was enforced in wider territories only when Joshua conquered Palestine and formed the first Jewish government. In Islam too, these two tenets, as well as the whole discipline given by Quran, was only promulgated when my Lord pbuh succeeded in establishing the Kingdom of God in Yathrab. I think these glittering examples manifestly rebutt your arguments and just cannot be denied or refuted, unless you are in an "I don't agree" mood.  
 
People, my dear, according to Quran are not capable to automatically start "following Allah's commands". See what Quran says about general public:-  
 
12/40: ان الحکم الا للہ امر الا تعبدو الی ایاہ ذلک الدین القیم و لکن اکثر الناس لا یعلمون  
12/21: واللہ غالب علی امرہ ولکن اکثر الناس لا یعلمون  
5/49: ان کثیرا من الناس لفاسقون  
7/179: و لقد ذرانا کثیرا من الناس لجہنم۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔اولئک کاالانعام بل ھم اضل  
 
Zakat's real concept, if taken according to its literal meaning, "means of sustenance, nourishment, development" cannot be distorted. Can such means be provided on individual level? No. Only a State or a Government can provide the sources and means of sustenance to all the population - to all the needy among the people. It is only a State that has such vast resources and capabilities. But if you are still dreaming of 2 1/2 percent charity out of your savings, every year, only then you will mis-conceive it. And it is not proved from Quran. Check around the world. Wherever the welfare (Zakat) is effectively provided, it is only through government sponsored and controlled system. You must know which countries are there in the world that are called the welfare states.  
 
However, you still have every right to maintain your stance and keep your opinions. And you know, I always appreciate your inquisitive mind. I do think with your capability of remembering Quran word by word, you can eventually qualify as a valuable asset to our Quranic community..  
 
God bless you.

Brother hafiz abdullah sahab slam wa rahmah u u.in my opinion you are right up to some extent, bcz of verse 22/41.thanks.

Comments by: aurangzaib On 07 May 2010Report Abuse
Brothers Moazzam and Abdullah,  
 
Good discussion on Aqamatus Salat and aitaa az-Zakat.  
 
I would only say that Abdullah's discussion above, directed to me, is not very clear.  
 
You have quoted 22/41 and you have taken it as a confirmation to Hafiz Abdullah's stand about establishing this system by individuals according to their capacity.  
I am sorry, 22/41 goes totally against this concept.  
This Ayat specifically links the establishment of Salat and Zakat with those whom "when/if we grant them a government on land". I always take this Ayat as the basis of my conviction. The History also confirms the truth of it.  
 
I have already mentioned that, on common sense level too, no effective, integrated and organized system or discipline can be enforced without a governmental authority. Individuals do not have that authority. If they try to impose some system, it will be construed as intervention into state affairs. The tyrants/dictators would just eliminate them.  
Only those moral values can be made popular within a small community which are just on a socio-religious level and do not interfere with the Constitution of the land (This is where brother Abdullah quoted Bahais and Qadyanis). While, on the contrary, Salat and Zakat are the basic Constitutional requisites and control the whole governing process. How can you impose them on an individual level?  
 
What individuals can do is that they can form a political party and struggle for coming up in the seats of power. They can propagate their ideology among masses and secure their support. Eventually when they come to power, it is only then that they will have the power to promulgate their manifesto.  
 
Ayaat 14/31, 10/87 and 13/19-22 quoted by brother Abdullah do not clarify his viewpoint. They are again addressing the elite ones and advising them to organize their people under their leadership. Hazrat Musa and his brother had to carry out a huge EXODUS from Egypt because they could not have established Salat , on individual level, under the Faroahs. Hazrat Ibrahim and many other Messengers had to migrate, to be able to establish their disciplines, which they were not able to establish on individual level under hostile governments.  
 
We also should not forget that an overwhelming majority of backward nations, where guidance becomes necessary, consists of illiterate and ignorant people, who are bereft of thought and devoid of intellect. Please check again the Ayaat (God's decree) quoted above about majority of common men.  
 
Hafiz Abdullah has a deep-rooted sense of 'religiosity' due to his religious education - and it shows. All his questions are originating from his deep 'religious' background. I just think, he is enduring a phase of doubt and transformation. I may be wrong. But a bird's eye-view over all of his questions gives me this impression.  
Because once the basic message of Quran is clear to you, all the interpretations become clear to you one by one.  
However, one thing is sure. There is no final word.  
 
I hope the discussion is useful for other friends. All can participate and express their viewpoints.  
 
God bless you.

Dear aurangzaib bhai regards,The struggle(at nehj e nabi) to esteblish the nizam e salat, whether indivisually or in the form of groups till the 22/41(tamakkan fil arz)is also fall in "aqamat e salat "as the Aasta.com or others are doing.When ever they succeded and get the chance 22/41,then they establish the nizam e salat in their society as well .Is it not " aqamat e salat "as per their capacity.Please enlighten ,Thanks

I agree with you, Maniza.  
 
PURIFY: To rid of impurities; cleanse. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/purify  
 
19:19 He said: I am only bearer of a message of thy Lord: That I will give thee a PURE boy.  
 
79:17-18 Go to Pharaoh, surely he has rebelled. And say: Will you PURIFY yourself?  
 
Pharaoh was being asked to be as a new born—clean, that is, clean of shirk, fahish, and munkar.

Salaam Dhulqarnain;  
 
What exactly does "political" Al-Salaat mean?  
As per my understanding, "politics" is word which reflects the concepts of "authority and power", instead of "mutual consent", or "mutual consultation" whereas Quran says there is no compulsion in AL-DEEN"  
لَآ إِكْرَاهَ فِى ٱلدِّينِ  
AND  
وَٱلَّذِينَ ٱسْتَجَابُو۟ا لِرَبِّهِمْ وَأَقَامُو۟ا ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَأَمْرُهُمْ شُورَىٰ بَيْنَهُمْ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَٰهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ (42:38  
 
The question is that, can we use the term "political" to define "AL-Salaat"?  
 
In order to make myself more clear, let me share the definition of politics;  
Politics (from Greek πολιτικός, "of, for, or relating to citizens"), is a process by which groups of people make collective decisions. The term is generally applied to the art or science of running governmental or state affairs. It also refers to behavior within civil governments. However, politics can be observed in other group interactions, including corporate, academic, and religious institutions. It consists of "social relations involving authority or power"  
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Politics  
 
You just said Al-Zakaat means pure?  
 
Let me share my understanding in this regard;  
Zakaat taken from root; (Zay - Kaaf - Waao) means "GROWTH" and "DEVELOPMENT".  
 
http://www.tolueislam.com/Urdu/lq/lq_zay.djvu  
 
http://www.tyndalearchive.com/TABS/Lane/  
 
According to what I have understood so far;  
وَأَقِيمُو۟ا ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَءَاتُو۟ا ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ means to establish a system according to the laws of Allah, (the permanent values defined in Al-Kitaab), and make it grow and develop. Just like a society where we implement a system based on peace, harmony, welfare and later we strive to make it grow and develop into perfection.  
 
I would also like to share my comments on the verses you have quoted;  
(19:19) says غُلَٰمًا زَكِيًّا  
Why غُلَٰمًا has been translated as "SON"?  
And what is the meaning of زَكِيًّا ?  
Root (Zay- Kaaf-Yey) means "to increase or augment"  
Ref: http://www.tyndalearchive.com/TABS/Lane/  
AND  
Qualitative Growth in terms of welfare and happiness  
http://www.tolueislam.com/Urdu/lq/lq_zay.djvu  
 
Also to mention (79:17 and 18) which says;  
ٱذْهَبْ إِلَىٰ فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّهُ طۥَغَىٰ  
فَقُلْ هَل لَّكَ إِلَىٰٓ أَن تَزَكَّىٰ  
 
Please note that the word طۥَغَىٰ has been mentioned as an antonym for تَزَكَّىٰ  
Pharaoh was a tyrant ruler wasn't he?  
طۥَغَىٰ as per context reflects Tyranny, suppression or transgression, for example we can say that the cruel autocrats or elites suppress the common people through transgression and oppression. Likewise the antonym for transgression cannot be purification, rather the concept of social awareness in terms of growth and development will be more suitable as antonym of transgression.  
Please look around and see the all the acts of transgression in our societies by the hands of elites nowadays. How can we resist this oppression, suppression and transgression?  
Of course through creating awareness among the masses, regarding the concepts of freedom and liberty.  
 
Let me share the definition of liberty:  
 
Liberty is a concept in political philosophy that identifies the condition in which human beings are able to govern themselves, to behave according to their own free will, and take responsibility for their actions. There are different conceptions of liberty, which articulate the relationship of individuals to society in different ways, including some which relate to life under a "social contract" or to existence in a "state of nature", and some which see the active exercise of freedom and rights as essential to liberty.  
Individualist and classical liberal conceptions of liberty typically consist of the freedom of individuals from outside compulsion or coercion, also known as negative liberty, while Social liberal conceptions of liberty emphasize social structure and agency, or positive liberty.  
In feudal societies, a "liberty" was an area of allodial land in which the rights of the ruler, or monarch, had been waived.  
 
Albeit I have some reservation on the term "political Philosophy" but more or less I agree with the definition.  
 
Looking forward to your reply..

Salaam Dhulqarnain;  
 
***What exactly does "political" Al-Salaat mean?***  
 
Allegiance to Allah by carrying out His Commands.  
 
***The question is that, can we use the term "political" to define "AL-Salaat"?***  
 
I don’t see why not. For me, the term political, simply means “interest”. We have personal politics/interests, local politics/interests, national politics/interests,and international politics/interests. Solaa certainly is political, because it speaks to our individual and group interests in this world which will determine our place in the next world. Solaa, then, is very politcal. Our politics/interests, in regard to solaa, can best be expressed in the following two ayats  
 
51:56 And I have not created the jinn and the men except that they should serve Me.  
 
6:106 Follow that which is revealed to thee from thy Lord — there is no god but He; and turn away from the polytheists.  
 
The above two ayats are extremely political! Why? Because, as solaa, they are bad news for the exploiters of this world if the muslim truly embraces them. Our politics/interests would oppose the politics/interests of the exploiters. This why the unbelievers attempted to slay the messengers and prophets—they were bad for business.  
 
***You just said Al-Zakaat means pure?***  
 
Actually…Allah said that. :D  
 
***Let me share my understanding in this regard; Zakaat taken from root; (Zay - Kaaf - Waao) means "GROWTH" and "DEVELOPMENT".

Of course through creating awareness among the masses, regarding the concepts of freedom and liberty. ***  
 
I agree to an extent. Yes, zakaa, does mean growth and development, but it also means pure; to purify. And take note that these two definitions are not mutually exclusive but indissolubly linked. One naturally supports the other. For me, however, for an individual or society to grow both the starting point must be purity, that is, cleansing oneself and society of the undermining forces of fahish/shameful deeds and munkar/evil deeds. i see fahish, and all that it implies, as the antonym for zakaa.  
 
The following ayats speak to my point of why zakaa is speaking more to purity/purifying than growth and development.  
 
7:33 Say: My Lord sanctions for you indecencies/fahish, such of them as are apparent and such as are concealed, and sin and unjust rebellion, and that you associate with Allah that for which He has sent down no authority, and that you say of Allah what you know not.  
 
6:151-153 Say: Come! I will recite what your Lord has sanctioned for you: Associate nothing with Him and do good to parents and slay not your children for (fear of) poverty — We provide for you and for them — and draw not nigh to indecencies, open or secret, and kill not the soul which Allah has made sacred except in the course of justice. This He enjoins upon you that you may understand. And approach not the property of the orphan except in the best manner, until he attains his maturity. And give full measure and weight with equity — We impose not on any soul a duty except to the extent of its ability. And when you speak, be just, though it be (against) a relative. And fulfil Allah’s covenant. This He enjoins on you that you may be mindful; And (know) that this is My path, the right one, so follow it, and follow not (other) ways, for they will lead you away from His way. This He enjoins on you that you may keep your duty.  
 
Above ayats 6:151-153, in my understanding, details the Solaa. Anyway, for example, here in the U.S. a congressman, Anthony Weiner, just recently resigned his office following an online sex scandal. He committed no sexual acts, but was still doing inappropriate sexual things/fahish which has now undermined much of his growth and development as a person, husband, and political figure. Look at the following ayat 17:32. Had Congressman Weiner abided by it and avoided the fahish, he would not be in the trouble he is now:  
 
17:32 And don’t go near fornication/zina: surely it is an obscenity/fahish. And evil is the way.  
 
Now, in regard to Pharaoh he could not possible grow and develop, in an Islamic manner anyway, until he first looked inside himself and decided to cleanse/purify himself of fahish. Pharaoh’s greatest fahish, of course, which he needed to be purified of, was shirk.  
 
26:29 (Pharaoh) said: If thou takest a god besides me, I will certainly put thee in prison.  
 
28:38 And Pharaoh said: O chiefs, I know no god for you besides myself; so kindle a fire for me, O Haman, on (bricks of) clay, then prepare for me a lofty building, so that I may obtain knowledge of Moses’ God, and surely I think him a liar.  
 
The U.S., and probably the rest of the world’s societies, are drowning in fahish and munkar. Salaa and Zakaa are the remedies for these grave diseases. They are foundational for proper and lasting growth and development.  
 
Looking forward to your reply.

AA dear friends. politics is not about ruling but managing by way of organizing people into a community for some end goal.  
 
In islamic sense I would say it means organising muslims into a community to manage land and resources, means of production and distribution so that people help each other fulfil their human needs, ambitions, and desires within set goals according to set guidelines.  
 
As for salaah and zakaah. Slah is divine system in sense of rule of law and zakaah is divine system in sense of means of production and disctribution.  
 
Islam is all about freedom, justice, fairness, compassion, brotherhood, progress and prosperity in the name of God for the good of mankind.  
 
Islam sets terms for peace between mankind as regard land and resources and means of production and distribution that if people agree on these term then they will have peace and that will help them progress and that will help them prosper.  
 
It is a fact of life that people are individuals and survival of individual is not that easy therefore the quran tells us to form community organisations and choose capable people to run those organisation in order to fulfil the needs of communities the while we do not have a single muslim organisation that can take care of things in a jurisdiction of its own.  
 
Surah nisaa in my view is not about women but communities telling muslims that they should organise and have set rights and responsibilities against each other and respect them. In absence of any single large organisation they should organise themselves into smaller organisations and take care of their own communities wherever they are in order to survive.  
 
It is in this context surah needs to be interpreted and so 4/34 is in that context in my view where people of means in the community are made responsible for people who are not that capable in the community.  
 
This surah is not about how many wives a man can have but how many people should lead those organisations 2. 3, 4, 5,........ .  
 
It is all misinterpretation of words like YATAAMA, NISAA, RIJAAL, NIKAH etc. The quran here tells us to not to change good system with bad one because bad system will lead to ills in the community as some people take away rights of others.  
 
 
Zakaah therefore does not mean 2.5% system that we are told about by our molvi sahibaan.  
 
It is about eliminating ills from the community which make life of people hell eg poverty.  
 
I think if we have an open discussion forum then each of us could share our interpretation of the quran and learn from each other at the same time. That is more likely to help us produce the right translation and interpretation of the quran that could help put the record straight.  
 
Each person working on his own cannot accomplish the task as quickly as we need to. It is because we lack any good translation and interpretation that we have a lot of explaining to do each other. This wastes our time by tacking individual's concerns individually. Our energies will be better spent on first creating a proper translation and then getting involved into debates with rest of the muslim and nonmuslim ummah. Then we can use our translation and interpretation as a reference and as an educational help about the quran.  
 
regards and all the best.

Salaam;  
 
Brother Mughal, Welcome to aastana :)  
It's a pleasure to have your acquaintance and I am glad to see another like minded individual on this forum.  
 
In fact I would like to share my thoughts on your comments regarding SALAAH and ZAKAAT.  
 
You said;
 
Salah is divine system in sense of rule of law and zakaah is divine system in sense of means of production and disctribution.  
 
According to what I have understood so far, Salaat means following a divine system in a broader perspective, which encompasses all the aspects of our life including economy.  
 
I would request you to please see the following verse;  
 
قَالُو۟ا يَٰشُعَيْبُ أَصَلَوٰتُكَ تَأْمُرُكَ أَن نَّتْرُكَ مَا يَعْبُدُ ءَابَآؤُنَآ أَوْ أَن نَّفْعَلَ فِىٓ أَمْوَٰلِنَا مَا نَشَٰٓؤُ۟ا إِنَّكَ لَأَنتَ ٱلْحَلِيمُ ٱلرَّشِيدُ (11:87  
 
In this particular verse, we can see that the word أَصَلَوٰتُ also demands فِىٓ أَمْوَٰلِنَا مَا نَشَٰٓؤُ۟ا which means that the concept of economy is also a part of Salaah. (Please do correct me if you think I am wrong here).  
 
The same concept can be seen in the following verse;  
 
ٱلَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِٱلْغَيْبِ وَيُقِيمُونَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَٰهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ (2:03  
 
In this particular verse, ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ has been linked with the concept of يُؤْمِنُونَ بِٱلْغَيْبِ i.e. "implementation of laws according to the precise measure or scales defined by Nature after due consideration" as well as وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَٰهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ which means natural resources to be kept open, invariably for all mankind.  
 
As far as Zakaat is concerned, I would request you to kindly see the following verse;  
 
وَأَقِيمُو۟ا ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَءَاتُو۟ا ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ وَٱرْكَعُو۟ا مَعَ رَكِعِينَ (2:43  
 
What I have understood from this verse is that ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ is the system which encompasses the political philosophy, the socio-economic system and laws implemented through observing the scales or measures nature (2:03) as well as instructions given in Al-Kitaab. This verse clearly instructs us to implement this system وَأَقِيمُو۟ا ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ, and strive to make it grow and develop وَءَاتُو۟ا ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ, just like a plant which grows into a tree with proper care and nurturing.  
In short, we can say that AL-ZAKAAT (Derived from the root ز - كَ - و ) is a concept of growth and development of the socio-economic, political and judicial system ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ based on political philosophy of justice, equality, peace and liberty.  
 
I would request you to kindly go through the following discussion thread and share your valuable comments;  
 
http://www.aastana.com/blog/aastanablog.asp?SID=41&QID=1400  
 
You also said;
 
 
It is all misinterpretation of words like YATAAMA, NISAA, RIJAAL, NIKAH etc. The quran here tells us to not to change good system with bad one because bad system will lead to ills in the community as some people take away rights of others.  
 
I completely agree with you on this and I would request you to share your understanding regarding the following terms;  
ٱلْيَتَٰمَىٰ - وَٱلْمَسَٰكِينَ - ٱلْمَالَ as mentioned in verse (2:177).

Salaam brother junaid and thank you for your being kind in sharing your thoughts.  
 
To understand things better perhaps we need to understand the relationship between ideologies, systems, structures and practices.  
 
Whenever we wish to do anything wherein it involves others it cannot be accomplished without some sort of interconnection or relationship between the involved people. Since this leads to idea of formation of some sort of association between people therefore comes about idea of organisation.  
 
This organisation of people needs management of its people and resources for their objectives according to some sort of guidelines. This is whereof we get various ideologies eg political, social, cultural and economic for systems, structures and practices.  
 
Suppose our overall objective is worldwide peace for mankind then it means managing people and resources to achieve that goals by having some guidelines that help us stick together and get on with whatever we have to do.  
 
This means we need such an overall ideology for peace which helps us structure a society politically in such a way so that we can put in place a political system through which we could create such a culture that helps us achieve such an economic system and structure and practice that helps us achieve a peaceful human society.  
 
This shows that as soon as we get the idea of working together we cannot escape politics. Good politics will lead to good society and bad politics will lead to bad society. If society is good for the people then it will create a good culture or atmosphere otherwise bad. If we have good social environment that will lead to good economics. Good economics means good people getting their good needs, ambition and desire met. This will keep troubles away from society.  
 
This shows how the whole system comes together in relationship to each of its parts or aspects. So everything comes under umbrella political ideology. In our case political ideology is quran with over all objective peace. It tells us how to structure our society so that we can achieve the set out goal according to its stated guidelines in form of rights and responsibilities and rules for forming laws.  
 
So even though slaah is a system and zakaah is a system but zakaah system is part of slaah system because slaah seems to be over all system and zakaah is its part.  
 
Moreover as slaah has its aspects so the zakaah has its aspects or parts. Just as economics is not just one things rather these are just labels for whole other subordinate fields. Organisational structures are like family trees if you like. The quran only gives us necessary main goals and main guidelines, main ideas and main systems, structures and practices and with in that we are free to to make as many departments or compartments as our human needs dictate. The over all idea is to achieve the goal and not how exactly we are going to achieve it.  
 
If the goals are freedom, justice, fairness, compassion, brotherhood, progress and prosperity for mankind then that means we need to educate people about the goals then there guidelines where ends do not justify ways and means so guidelines must be educated about. It is then up to people to come together and cooperate willingly so that we could bring about peace because it is not one man show.  
 
This will need debates and discussion to convince people that the way they are living is not going to get them peace in a million years rather they need to look at the ideas the quran suggests and see if they are any better.  
 
So our first step it to help each other understand the quran and only when we have reasonable interpretation that can satisfy our own minds that we can start putting it to others to have the answers for their questions. I do not think we can convince people just by debating them the while there is no good interpretation for us to refer them to.  
 
This is what led me to go through the quran to see what sense I get from it. So that is what I am sharing and of course it is only my understanding till others also think and share their ideas and may be one of us or we all together may be able to do some justice to this great book.  
 
So please keep sharing ideas and may be we will hit the nail on the head one day. Great structures are built by simply putting bricks together one by one. It needs our patient and hard work.  
 
Thank you again and God bless.
