JAVED ZAHEER---FOUNDER OF SHIR INTERNATIONAL NETWORK:
A MISSION WITH A VISION TO SERVE HUMANITY IN REALITY
THINK & ACT WISELY, ONLY PEOPLE
CAN HELP BRING REAL CHANGE
BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREEEXPRESSION AWARD WINNER,
TORONTO: Nothing is free. Not even the attention, love and blessings of God. Everything requires something in return in various shapes and forms to deserve and earn it.
Most people desire love, closeness and blessings of God and a place in heaven and consider them free and their birth right but do not realize that all these are not free and were never free at all. They require true worship of God, goodness and service to humanity in reality. Not everybody but only those who truly work hard deserve and earn them.
Most people do not truly rely but demand from God and keep wishing, dreaming, working and praying throughout their lives for their vested interests and become unhappy, dejected and disappointed if their contributions and prayers are not accepted and demands not met. They start blaming God and hold Him responsible for their sufferings and failures.
If they start thinking and understanding as to why God is not accepting their prayers and contributions and showering His blessings as THEY desire or demand then they would start realizing their wrongs, mistakes and faults including cunningness, selfishness and greediness and begin reforming themselves to earn the acceptance of prayers, love and blessings of God.
In the holy Quran, see what God says in the following chapters (Surahs) about human beings and how they can become really good:
Surah # 4 An-Nisa. Verses 78-80): Wheresoever ye may be, death will overtake you, even though ye were in lofty towers. Yet if a happy thing befalleth them they say: This is from Allah; and if an evil thing befalleth them they say: This is of thy doing (O Muhammad). Say (unto them): All is from Allah. What is amiss with these people that they come not nigh to understand a happening? (78) Whatever of good befalleth thee (O man) it is from Allah, and whatever of ill befalleth thee it is from thyself. We have sent thee (Muhammad) as a messenger unto mankind and Allah is sufficient as Witness. (79) Whoso obeyeth the messenger hath obeyed Allah, and whoso turneth away: We have not sent thee as a warder over them (80). Translation: Pickthal.
Surah # 103 Al-Asr (Verses 1-3): By the declining day, (1) Lo! Man is a state of loss, (2) Save those who believe and do good works, and exhort one another to truth and exhort one another to endurance. (3)
Surah # 21 Al-Anbiya (Verse 87): And (mention) Dhu'n-Nun, when he went off in anger and deemed that We had no power over him, but he cried out in the darkness, saying: There is no God save Thee. Be Thou glorified! Lo! I have been a wrong-doer. (87) Then we heard his prayer and saved him from the anguish. Thus we save believers. (88)
SURAH # 7 Al-Araf (Verse 23): They said: Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If thou forgive us not and have not mercy on us, surely we are of the lost! (23).
SURAH # 23 Al-Mumenoon (Verses 97-98): And say: My Lord! I seek refuge in Thee from suggestions of the evil ones, (97) And I seek refuge in Thee, my Lord, lest they be present with me, (98).
SURAH # 20 Ta-Ha (Verses 25-28): (Moses) said: My Lord! relieve my mind (25) And ease my task for me; (26) And loose a knot from my tongue, (27) That they may understand my saying. (28)
The reformation process requires one to understand, train and control the wandering mind. The devil keeps playing with us by corrupting and controlling our minds through evil temptations including harmful personal and worldly desires.
The mind is like a wild horse and needs to be tamed and controlled. Focus on the mind is extremely important to tame, train and prepare it to follow OUR positive and constructive ideas, instructions and directions. The mind is like any vehicle whose steering and control should always remain in OUR hands otherwise there could be small, serious and fatal accidents and disasters.
ELECTION/SELECTION: As long as our focus on the mind is right then we will always think right, make and take good decisions, use our votes sensibly to choose and elect true leaders and right parties.
The right focus on the mind will always help and enable us to remain on the track and do good to not only deserve and earn successes and blessings but bring peace and happiness in the homes and lives of all people. Next time when we pray or do anything then make sure the focus is right to make and take good decisions and think and act positively to get good results.
I believe in SHIR (Serve Humanity In Reality) and founded the SHIR International Network. This belief helps me to write what is good for all people, country and humanity. The truth is always bitter and very hard to swallow.
This is what happened with one of the three major political parties of Canada---Conservative, Liberal and NDP. It refused to post on the website of the leader an article I wrote for him, terming it as not in the interest of the party.
How can I support and vote any such party which shamelessly ask people for votes with commitment to serve them but later ignore them and also treats its leaders as remotes and puppets with instructions to serve only the vested interests of the party.
This is why I call such politics a dirty game. I would rather waste my vote instead of giving to such leaders and parties. My conscience and focus on the mind does not allow me to commit such grave mistake as I cannot trust such leaders and parties.
When the glaring mistakes of the parties and leaders are pointed out, it is again shamelessly said: “Forget whatever had happened. Think about now and the future. Elect us for
a real change.”
This is what is usually said but in reality not done. People keep wishing and dreaming about the real change and the parties and leaders keep preying on them and playing with them.
Because of this behaviour, attitude and character, the parties and leaders fail to win trust and confidence of the people.
The people very well understand that they are being fooled, exploited, cheated and harmed because of the wrong policies and dirty politics. They openly talk about it and curse and condemn all the bad parties, leaders and policies. They know that most of the political parties and leaders are all hands in gloves. On the stage they look different and innocent to fool the people but behind the curtain they are all one. They believe in and promote hypocrisy in the name of democracy.
Harmful bills are being made and passed as policies and laws not only against the wishes of the Canadian people but the Canadian Charter of Rights as well. The Canadian Charter of Rights is being mercilessly flouted and made a joke. People understand very well that not the good and true Canadians but only enemies of the people and the country dare to think of harming Canada and Canadians.
If not understood and stopped timely then get prepared for the worst, both now and in the future. My Dear Loving & Caring Canadians, recognize, expose and stop the enemies of the people and the country before it is too late. Already much harm has been done. Disappointment is widespread, concern is great and anger of people is at its peak. They are extremely worried and thinking and saying: “What the heck is happening?”
Naheed Hassan (613-667-3172) of One Canada (http://www.one-canada.org), a new Canadian and a Pakistani & Muslim community leader, called me and said:
“Dear Javed Zaheer,
“It was great talking to you on the phone and I do hope we can get this message out to a wider audience. It is of critical importance that our community understand this threat and use their voting power to support the right party and candidates who will repeal Bill C-24 and give our rights back to us. Will wait to hear what you have to say about the article.
“We have started a ONE-CANADA campaign to unite during and after the elections and work towards repealing Bill C-24. Join us by visiting our website at www.one-canada.org.”

Syed Muhammad Iqbal, President of Pak Seniors Forum (PSF), a responsible and influential Canadian citizen and a distinguished member of the Pakistani and Muslim community, supported me as follows:
“Dear Javed Zaheer: You are the lone crusader trying to put things in the right order in a world of astray and so called and self-styled intellectuals, who work for their nefarious designs. They usher as reformers, saviors and develop cult to misguide and try to exploit the innocent people by an easy tool of vote and when finally the damage is done they wane and finally disappear for a four or five years term. Everywhere they keep on exploiting the masses with dreams of acquiring all the heavenly goods and when they wake up they realize it was a nightmare. This never ending scheme would continue, if the right people do not take up the right job. May God bless you with his enormous bounties and energy to implement your plans what you have conceived through your think tank and your valiant comrades. Be blessed.Distinguished community leaders like Syed Muhammad Iqbal, President of PSF (email@example.com), Shahid Hashmi, Chairman of Canpak Chamber of Commerce (firstname.lastname@example.org), Muhammad Hameeduddin, Publisher & Editor of AWAZ, (email@example.com), Afzal Khan Nayyar (firstname.lastname@example.org), like and love to help and support and live and work with all people and welcome them, particularly like-minded ones.
As founder of SHIR International Network, it is my spiritual duty and part of my SHIR mission and vision to keep offering special prayers for all people and Canada. May God protect them from all evils, enemies, hypocrites and demoncrats. The SHIR Spirituality Team will always remain active for this.
