Conundrum conventions.

conundrum conventions:
It is the matter of grave concern for the myopic attitude of simpleton masses due to their unclear receptibility about sages of ages are hard to believe for them. The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that the something can be true and untrue at the same time. How to make up one’s mind, when it is said that nobody is perfect, then it is told practice makes perfect. Action may not always bring happiness but there is no happiness without action. It is commmon aphorism that love is life. Simultaneously said love is not enough. It must be the foundation, the cornerstone – but not the complete structure. It is much too pliable, too yielding. Sufism is the way to differentiate in between all this bilateral opposition, is itself a conceptual victim of unexplained phenomena. God created us to know Him. He loves us. When love revealed its mystery to us we become brightly illuminated. A true sufi is impressed of worship  from his inner aspire to love with his Beloved the ultimate Truth and is in  quest for Union with Eternal One. Jesus told ,  I am the way, the truth, and the life. If our lives are centered in God’s truth, He will renew our minds, calmly guide our emotions and activate our will to tell the truth. Truth is higher than any religion (A sufi maxim). Here are few of contradictory events from history which are pari passu true and untrue.. How to pragmatize the old convention, if there is Truth, keep on dancing. Your love has made me dance all over. (Bulleh Shah). I would believe only in a God that knows how to dance.  ~Friedrich Nietzsche. Never trust spiritual leader who cannot dance. Dancing is like dreaming with your feet. Dance is the hidden language of the soul. Dancing with the feet is one thing, but dancing with the heart is another. Dancing is the poetry of the foot. Truth, love and  dance are concomitant.  Socrates was given the opportunity to suggest his own punishment and could probably have avoided death by recommending exile. Instead, the philosopher initially offered the sarcastic recommendation that he be rewarded for his actions. Faced with the two choices, the jury selected death for Socrates. Socrates would thus may be cosidered his own executioner. There is the same contadictional aspect in Galileo’s case.  Was he  really persecuted?  The story is the war between religion and science, and it is presented to us, armed only with a telescope and reason, plucky Galileo stood against the might of the Church. He was tortured by the inquisition, condemned as a heretic, and wasted away in a prison cell; Italian science floundered. The main drawback to this story is that most of it is untrue. The trial of Galileo was one of many trials. It had no special features except perhaps that Galileo was treated rather mildly, despite his lies and attempts at deception. But a small clique of intellectuals aided by scandal-hungry writers succeeded in blowing it up to enormous dimensions so that what was basically an altercation between an expert and an institution defending a wider view of things now looks almost like a battle between heaven and hell. On the one hand it is said that Mansoor al-Hallaaj who traveled to many places, including Makkah, Khurasaan and India where he learned magic, witchcraft and he was a trickster and cheat. He deceived many ignorant people thereby, and they were attracted by him, until they thought that he was one of the greatest awliya (close friends or “saints”) of Allaah. On th other hand  he is liked by most of the Orientalists, and they think that he was killed wrongfully.  He was executed in Baghdad in 309 AH, because it was proven by his own confession and otherwise that he was a kaafir and a heretic.  Because of these sayings like “ann-al-haque” and others, the scholars were agreed that he was a kaafir and a heretic, and for this reason he was executed in Baghdad in 309 AH. Similarly, most of the Sufis denounced him and denied that he was one of them. Among those who denounced him was al-Junayd. The historical causes of the backwardness of Sindhi Muslims thus started from this year i.e., 926 AH (1520 AD). The defeat of their rulers was not accepted by the masses who rose against the invaders. A strange incident of history unparalleled elsewhere was that even the leading saints, sufis rose against the invaders. They were  ruthlessly suppressed and savage punishment was inflicted on them. Resistance against  Shah Beg was organized by Makhdoom Bilawal, a Sufi Saint and his Khalifas. Shah Beg a muslim invader was face to face in battle field with a Sufi Saint defender. Makhdoom Bilawal was finally captured and executed by crushing him under a wooden oil expeller. Sufi Shah Inayat Shaheed, sometimes referred as the First Social Reformer from Jhoke, Sindh, in early eighteenth century. He was executed in the name of  negotiations. Recent example of discordant enigmatic events are the death of Z.A. Bhutto and murder of Benair Bhutto, Salman Taseer and aftermath. All true and untrue events are in pari passu.         (by : Aijaz)
