                TORONTO: Goodbye 2015 and welcome 2016. Happy New Year to all including my near and ones, friends and fans. Let’s make 2016 one of the best and most beautiful years. Let’s make the precious moments of 2016 by meeting, greeting and treating each other and by loving, caring, helping and supporting each other. Let’s support and promote the spirit of live and work together with all people and communities with full honesty and sincerity.
         CELEBRATIONS: Shahid Hashmi, Chairman, Canpak Chamber of Commerce, who booked a whole VIP table for his family, took me and Syed Muhammad Iqbal, President of Pak Seniors Forum (PSF), to a New Year celebration event at Chandni Banquet Hall. The sensational Canadian singer of Pakistani origin Saima Khan performed and shook the whole audience. The hall was jam packed but very well organized. The entertainment and enjoyment could be imagined with couples dancing on the dance floor and the deafening noise of music and voices of music lovers.
            I have the honour of writing exclusive articles on Saima Khan, singer, Muhammad Ather, a TV host and actor and producer of his own Bollywood movie, and Mehdi Salahuddin, Ghazal and Geet singer. He sings Mehdi Hassan. All three of them are at their peak level now and making me and the community proud. What I wrote about them they proved it and are proving it right.We must always support and promote by all means all those shining, talented, genius deserving  community members who can contribute tremendously and make us all proud.      
            Analyze what we did in 2015. Cherish the good moments, contributions, achievements and successes. Learn from the losses suffered, reasons and factors of failures and mistakes committed in order to avoid and not repeat them. This is how we can make the lives of all peaceful and beautiful. This is how we can make the world a safer place.
            Fighting, arguments, jealousy, enmity and competition are all part of human nature. They will continue as usual because of good and bad natures of people. The important question is how we can avoid them? The solution is with positive attitude and constructive approach. We can only truly love and respect each other if we learn to sensibly understand and practically tolerate each other.
            Vested interests, mindset and nature are the three factors responsible for competitions, differences, clashes and cruelties. Those who are bad in nature and doing harmful acts deliberately must be confronted and tackled accordingly because they belong to the army of evil, are friends of the Satan and devils and sworn enemies of mankind. Their intentions and actions are always to cause death and destruction.
            We must practically help all people, communities, governments and countries in exposing, fighting and punishing the rotten eggs of the society and system, criminals and terrorist. This can only happen if we keep a watchful eye and monitor the community members--To help and support the good ones and expose and punish the bad ones.
            Everything we do must be meaningful. Do celebrate but don’t simply waste time, money and energy on celebrations because there are thousands who cannot even afford to eat, dress and live properly. We must make sure that the tears falling from their eyes are of joy and happiness and not of sorrow and sadness. The poor too are human beings and tests and trials for us otherwise the whole world would have been the same---rich or poor and bad or good.      
            AVOID ARGUMENTS: God’s (Allah) divine and clear message is for all believers including Christians, Muslims and Jews to understand and implement. Muslims particularly must remain very alert and sensible as the sworn enemies of mankind are targeting them to harm and destroy them. Even God (Allah) has advised them to avoid people who are a nuisance and engage in nonsense discussions. .       
            We must always disliked and avoid people senselessly arguing, debating and criticizing each other and their faiths and religions. Through divine messages, I came to know that as a Muslim we have been taught to remain on the right path, honest and peaceful, show great patience and demonstrate great love and respect for humanity.   
            All believers including Muslims should avoid unnecessary arguments about God (Allah) because of the following clear messages and commands of God (Allah):
            In Surah # 1 Al-Fateha:  “Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the Worlds (2) Most Gracious, Most Merciful (3) Master of the, Day of Judgment.”
            In Surah # 109 Al-Kafiroon: “Say: O ye that reject Faith! (1) I worship not that which ye worship, (2) Nor will ye worship that which I worship. (3) And I will not worship that which ye have been wont to worship, (4) Nor will ye worship that which I worship. (5) To you be your Way, and to me mine. (6).” 
            In Surah # 112 Al-Ikhlas: “Say: He is Allah the One and Only; (1) Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; (2) He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; (3) And there is none like unto Him. (4).” 
            In the light of the above, it is the duty and responsibility of all believers including Muslims to simply propagate and demonstrate with understanding, love, respect and good character and leave the rest on God only Who can give proper guidance. We have no power or authority to give such guidance. God dislikes hypocrisy and has promised severe punishment for hypocrites. We need to understand and differentiate between the good and bad people. Hypocrites only love their vested interests and damn care about all other things. They can never become friends or be trusted.   Make a pledge for 2016 that as believers and good human beings, we will keep trying to follow what God (Allah) has taught and commanded.
               COMMENTS/REPLY: Below are the comments received from Shahid Hashmi on my above article and my reply to him:      
              Javed Zaheer: "Thanks for the valuable suggestions, comments and your personal views and opinions. I always welcome and appreciate such responses to the extent that they do not interfere in my personal and professional lives and working.  Before God I am helpless and act as a robot as He wants me to do things but when it comes to the world then I cannot act as a robot because God has given me such soul, mind, nature and character. 
        I do realize whatever you pointed out regarding mixing of issues and proper highlighting of specific and titled issues. Whatever I feel right and I need to be corrected I do it without wasting time. I will keep both your suggestions and my vision as well in my mind and writing.  I am a student of international relations and affairs and keep an eye on the world policies and developments in my own way.
        The concept of one world, one economy, one religion, one society and one system is being promoted and implemented after the World. Islam and Muslims are being targeted because of being considered hurdles in implementation of the policies. Nothing is new or debatable a lot has been published about this from both sides and angles.
      Thanks again for your suggestions, comments, views and opinions, which have practically helped you tremendously in your success and achievements and making your life and world beautiful.  Similarly, i too cherish my thoughts and work and enjoy the beauty of my life, world and work.
       It is good to have company of like-minded people of different mindsets, which varies with nature, habits and characters.  It is not only difficult but dangerous and not advisable at all  to interact or work with people with sick mindset. Such company can definitely corrupt the minds of even the good and best people.  This is why it is important to have a good company and society. I very much respect you and your goodness. "
            Dr Shahid Hashmi: " Sir I respect you from bottom of my heart. Thank you for listening you're the best.  I'm always impressed with those people who practice their religion in their practical life and they don't show their double standard and do not take advantage  because  of the religion. It's never impressed me by reading articles all of us should read Quran with understanding ensure that in our practice and become a real good human being  I can only learn from their practical with their true practice. As long as they're not being fanatic  and giving a bad name to any religion

            “Your article as usual is very good it is my humble request that don't mix religious writing with the events I understand you are working on a mission but that should kept separate your readers will enjoy more you should be caring for both audience some prefer religious writing some will skip. If you have to publish together then write the interesting event first then you may have more readers for example in this article celebration portion is totally buried some people may not even go that far. This is my opinion only you know better."
