Allah told Iblis that Ayub was one of His most sincere devotees. He did not worship Him because of thefavors; his worship stemmed from his heart and had nothing to do with material things. But to prove Iblis the depth of Ayub' s sincerity and patience, Allah allowed him to do whatever he and his helpers wished with Ayub's wealth.
Iblis was very happy. He gathered his helpers and set about destroying Ayub's cattle, servants, and farms until he was left with no possessions. Rubbing his hands in glee, Iblis appeared before Ayub in the guise of a wise old man and said to him:
"All your wealth is lost. Some people say that it is because you gave too much charity and that you are wasting your time with your continuous prayers to Allah. Others say that Allah has bought this upon you in order to please your enemies. If Allah had the capacity to prevent harm, then He would have protected your wealth"
True to his belief, Ayub replied:
"What Allah has taken away from me belongs to Him. I was only its trustee for a while. He gives to whom He wills and withholds from whom He wills"
With these words, Ayub again prostrated to his Lord.
When Iblis saw this, he felt frustrated, so he again addressed Allah:
"I have stripped Ayub of all his possessions, but he still remains grateful to You. However, he is only hiding his disappointment, for he places great store by his many children. The real test of a parent is through him children. You will then see how Ayub will reject You"
Allah granted Iblis authority, but warned him that it would not reduce Ayub's faith in his Lord nor his patience.
Iblis again gathered his helpers and set about his evil deeds. He shook the foundation of the house in which Ayub's children were living and sent the building crashing, killing all of them. Then he went to Ayub disguised as a man who had come to sympathize with him. In a comforting tone he said to Ayub:
"The circumstances under which your children died were sad. Surely, your Lord is not rewarding you properly for all your prayers?"
Having said this Iblis waited anxiously, hoping Ayub was now ready to reject Allah. But again Ayub disappointed him by replying:
"Allah sometimes gives and sometimes takes. He is sometimes pleased and sometimes displeased with our deeds. Whether a thing is beneficial or harmful to me, I will remain firm in my belief and remain thankful to my Creator"
Then Ayub prostrated to his Lord. At this Iblis was extremely vexed. Iblis again called on Allah:
"O my Lord, Ayub's wealth is gone, his children are dead, but he is still healthy in body, and as long as he enjoys good health he will continue to worship You in the hope of regaining his wealth and producing more children. Grant me authority over his body so that I may weaken it. He will surely neglect worshipping You and withh thus becomes disobedient"
Allah wanted to teach Iblis a lesson that Ayub was a devoted servant of his Lord, so He granted Iblis his third request but placed a condition:
"I give you authority over his body but not over his soul, intellect, or heart, for in these places reside the knowledge of Me and My religion"
Armed with this new authority, Iblis began to take revenge on Ayub's body and filled it with disease until it was reduced to mere skin and bone and he suffered severe pain. But through all the suffering Ayub remained string in his faith, patiently bearing all the hardships without complaining. Allah's righteous servant did not despair or turn to others for help but remained hopeful of Allah's Mercy. Even close relatives and friends deserted him. Only his kind loving wife stayed with him. In his hour of need, she showered her kindness on him and cared for him. She remained his sole companion and comforter through many years of his suffering.
Ibn Asaker narrated: "Ayub was a man having much wealth of all kinds: beasts, slaves, sheep, vast lands of Haran and many children. All those favors were taken from him and he was physically afflicted as well. Never a single organ was sound except his heart and tongue, with both of which he glorified Allah, the Almighty all the time day and night. His disease lasted for a long time until his visitors felt disgusted with him. His friend kept away from him, and people abstained from visiting him. No one felt sympathy for him except his wife. She took good care of him, knowing his former charity and pity for her"
Therefore, Iblis became desperate. He consulted his helpers but they could not advise him. They asked:
"How is it that your cleverness cannot work against Ayub, yet you succeeded in misleading Adam, the father of man, out of paradise?"
Iblis went to Ayub's wife in the form of a man. "Where is your husband?" he asked her.
She pointed to an almost lifeless form crumpled on the bed and said: "There he is, suspended between life and death."
Iblis reminded her of the days when Ayub had good health, wealth and children. Suddenly, the painful memory of yeas of hardship overcame her, and she burst into tears. She said to Ayub:
"How long are you going to bear this torture from our Lord? Are we to remain without wealth, children or friends forever? Why don't you call upon Allah to remove this suffering?"
Ayub sighed, and in a soft voice replied:
"Iblis must have whispered to you and made you dissatisfied. Tell me, how long did I enjoy good health and riches?"
She replied, "For eighty years"
Then Ayub asked, "How long am I suffering like this?"
She said, "for seven years"
Then Ayub told her:
"In that case I am ashamed to call on my Lord to remove the hardship, for I have not suffered longer than the years of good health and plenty. It seems your faith has weakened and you are dissatisfied with the fate of Allah. If I ever again health, I swear I will punish you with a hundred strokes! From this day onward, I forbid myself to eat or drink anything from your hand. Leave me alone and let my Lord do with me as He pleases."
Crying bitterly and with a heavy heart, she had no choice but to leave him and seek shelter elsewhere. In his helpless state, Ayub turned to Allah, notto complain but to seek His mercy: | "Verily, dsitress has seized me, and You and the Most Merciful of all those who show Mercy. So We answered his call, and We removed the distress that was on him, and We restored his family to him (that he had lost) and the like thereof along with them - as a mercy from Ourselves and a Reminder for all who whorship Us" Quran 21:83-84 | |
Almighty Allah also instructed: | "Commemorate Our servant Ayub behold he cried to his Lord: "The Evil One has afflicted me with distress and suffering"! (The command was given:) "Strike with thy foot: here is (water) wherein to wash cool and refreshing and (water) to drink." And We gave him (back) his people and doubled their number as a Grace from Ourselves and a thing for commemoration for all who have Understanding." Quran 38:41-43 | |
Ayub obeyed, and almost immediately his good health was restored. Meanwhile, his faithful wife could no longer bear to be parted from her husband and returned to beg his forgiveness, desiring to serve him. On entering he house, she was amazed at the sudden change: Ayub was again healthy! She embraced him and thanked Allah for His mercy.
Ayub was now worried, for he had taken an oath to punish her with a hundred strokes if he regained health, but he had no desire to hurt her. He knew if he did not fulfill the oath, he would be guilty of breaking a promise to Allah. Therefore, in His wisdom and mercy, Allah came to the assistance of His faithful servant, and advised him: . | "And take in your hand a bundle of thin grass and strike therewith (your wife), and break not your oath. Truly we found him patient. How excellent a slave! Verily, he was ever oft-returning in repentance to Us"Quran 38:44 | |
Abu Huraira (ra) narrated that the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) said: | "While Ayub was naked, taking a bath, a swarm of locusts fell on him, and he started collecting them in his garment. His Lord called him: 'O Ayub! Have I not made you too rich to need what you see?' He said: 'Yes, O Lord! But I cannot shun Your Blessings" (Bukhari) |
The story of Ayub should be a constant reminder for us all. We should read this story often just to remind ourselves. Many of us complain about the little things in life. Allah tested Ayub in ways that we can really relate to. His faith and patience is something that we as true believing Muslims should try and implement in our lives, when Allah tests us in these situations. In the Quraan Allah says, | "Truly! We found him patient. How excellent (a) slave! Verily, he was ever oft returning in repentance (to us)." [Quran:38:4]. | |
During these times we must remember Allah more, pray harder, and be more thankful instead of being dissatisfied with our condition. We should praise and thank Allah for every condition that he tests us with. As we know these are the times when Satan tries to work on us the most by playing with our minds, emotions, and weaknesses. Allah would never forget to reward a servant for such a great task. | "And (remember) Ayub when he cried to his Lord: Verily, distress has seized me and you are the Most Merciful of all who show mercy." [Quraan:21:83] | |

| "So We answered his call, and We removed the distress that was on him, and We restored his family to him (that he had lost), and the like thereof along with them, as a mercy from Ourselves and a Reminder for all those who worship us." [Quraan:21:84] | |
May Allah give us the faith and the patience when we are tested. Ameen.…...

...named Baba Ayub. He lived with his family in a little village by the name of Maidan Sabz. Because he had a large family to feed, Baba Ayub saw his days consumed by hard work. Every day, he laboured from dawn to sundown, ploughing his field and turning the soil and tending to his meagre Pistachio trees. At any given moment you could spot him in his field, bent at the waist, back as curved as the scythe he swung all day. His hands were always callused, and they often bled, and every night sleep stole him away no sooner than his cheek met the pillow. I will say that, in this regard, he was hardly alone. Life in Maidan Sabz was hard for all its inhabitants. There were other, more fortunate villages to the north, in the valleys, with fruit trees and flowers and pleasant air, and streams that ran with cold, clear water. But Maidan Sabz was a desolate place, and it didn’t resemble in the slightest the image that its name, Field of Green, would have you picture. It sat in a flat, dusty plain ringed by a chain of craggy mountains. The wind was hot, and blew dust in the eyes. Finding water was a daily struggle because the village wells, even the deep ones, often ran low. Yes, there was a river, but the villagers had to endure a half-day walk to reach it, and even then its waters flowed muddy all year round. Now, after ten years of drought, the river too ran shallow. Let’s just say that people in Maidan Sabz worked twice as hard to eke out half the living. Still, Baba Ayub counted......

...constitutional façade was preserved. Successive military rulers, backed by unelected and self-appointed representatives, abused the constitution and acquired untrammeled power to govern without popular mandate or due constitutional processes. For the sake of convenience and clarity, albeit at the risk of artificially compartmentalizing what is a complicated and interwoven story, this paper is divided into five periods: (i) 1947 to 1958, when the constitutional arena was dominated by an alliance of non-representative politicians who stymied the process of drafting a constitution and ruled the country arbitrarily; (ii) 1958 to 1971, the so-called ‘basic democracy’, an elaborate hoax designed essentially to keep the army dicator, Field Marshall Mohammed Ayub Khan and his civil-military bureaucracy in power by denying effective popular participation; (iii) 1972 –75 saw the culmination of the long struggle of the Bangalis for a constitutional government and the writing of the first constitution by a popularly elected representatives of the people of the newly liberated Bangladesh; and then again the promising experiment in constitutionalism was whittled away for reasons and in circumstances not yet fully explained; (iv) 1975-1991: the democratically elected government was overthrown and the constitution became virtually an instrument for perpetuating the military’s dominance of the government; and (v) since 1991: a popular movement swept away authoritarian rule and set the stage......

After one circle, the man gets the tapis off his shoulder and holds it both hands in front of him while dancing and moving towards the dancing female who moves surreptitiously evading the approach of the dancing male partner.

Inspector Calls

...I saw a production of East is East at The New Alexander Theatre. My first impressions were that I was very excited to watch this play because I could relate to this play and the title ‘East is East’ was interesting and made me wonder what will the play be about. I think the director Ayub Din Khan wanted to express the Asian culture and his experience to the British audience. I watched this performance on 15th January 2015. In this controlled Assessment, I will be analysing the performance of East is East. The key characters in the play were: Ayub Din Khan (George), Jane Horrocks (Ella) and Micheal Karim (Sajit). George (Ayub Din Khan) is the head of the Khan family, who tries to enforce his culture in a different society. He rose and grew throughout the play with is humour. I believe he is an obvious stereotype due to the clothing he wears. His clothing reflects that he is a typical, narrow-minded Pakistani father. His strong determination to help his family was evident throughout the play. Ella is the mother of 6 children, whose first priority is the happiness of her children. She is the wife of George who tries to keep the family together. Throughout the play, Ella delivers a fun and incredibly emotional scene with equal excellence. Sajit, the son of Ella is a vulnerable child and shows the impacts of the family problems through his quietness. The first thing I noticed was the set. The set was realistic and had different locations; living room, the Khan......

History of Pakistan

...on a European pattern, but on the ideology and democratic faith of Islam. The legislative elections in 1954 saw the Awami League coming to power and its leader Huseyn Suhrawardy becoming country's first Bengali Prime minister. Promulgation of Constitution in 1956 lead to Pakistan declaring itself Islamic republic (official name) with the adoption of parliamentary democratic system of government. The constitution transformed the Governor-General of Pakistan into President of Pakistan (as head of state). Subsequently, Iskander Mirza became the first president as well as first Bengali in 1956, but the democratic system was stalled after President Mirza imposed the military coup d'état and appointed Ayub Khan as an enforcer of martial law. Two weeks later, President Mirza was ousted by Ayub Khan; his presidency saw an era of internal instability and a second war with India in 1965. Economic grievances and political disenfranchisement in East Pakistan led to violent political tensions and armed repression, escalating into guerrilla war[8] followed by the third war with India. Pakistan's defeat in the war ultimately led to the secession of East Pakistan and the birth of Bangladesh.[9] Democracy again returned which was resumed from 1972 to 1977 under leftist PPP led by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, until he was vanquished by General Zia-ul-Haq, who became the country's third military president. Pakistan's banished-secular policies were replaced by the new Islamic Shariah legal code,......

The Overview of Capm

This study can advocate breakthrough and the replacement of variances by downside risk as a suitable risk measure in a single asset-pricing model. Downside risk based single asset pricing model will help in pricing securities more appropriately and anticipating portfolio risk for investors. Downside risk framework will also aid in determining the nature of investment. It will determine market behavior in a better way as compared to other single asset pricing models. Moreover, representing cost of capital for capital budgeting is necessary to finance those assets. DCAPM can also contribute in this area leading to a suitable model of financing for all other theories (Tahir, Abbas, Sargana, Ayub, & Saeed, 2013). First, the study discusses conceptual and empirical problems related to these models. As DCAPM has similar assumptions as of CAPM, so those study sticks to basic underlying methodology of testing CAPM. This study inspects intercept, risk-return relationship, nonlinearities and effect of residuals for both CAPM and DCAPM. CAPM and DCAPM hold similar ground pertaining to nonlinearities and effect of cash flows. The results of the researchers also reveal that risk-return relationship holds up; however, DCAPM comes out to be strong contender compared to CAPM for risk-return relationship (Tahir, Abbas, Sargana, Ayub, &......

Reasons for Partition of East Pakistan

...national language as they formed a majority in the country. Jinnah visited East Pakistan, shortly before his death in 1948, and announced that, "Without one state language, no nation can remain tied up solidly together and function." After this statement, serious resentment broke out and demonstrations were led where students demanded equal status for Bengali. General Ayub Khan’s Era Ayub Khan's era played a fundamental role in the unpleasant separation of East Pakistan. People of East Pakistan were not happy by the reforms introduced by Ayub Khan in the 1962 constitution. All political activities and groups were banned. Moreover, all financial development was carried out in the West Wing, completely ignoring the East Wing. Ayub Khan was a powerful man but he made many mistakes on this issue. During the war of 1965, the East Pakistanis cried that West Pakistan left them alone in the mercy of cruel Indian army. This destroyed the confidence of East Pakistanis on our military and government. Moreover, the Agartala conspiracy also played a role as Mujeeb met with Indian generals and formulated strategies against Ayub Khan that led to the decreased reputation of him. Formation of Awami League 1951 Another cause of the partition of East wing was the formation of Awami League in 1951 by Sheikh Mujib-ur-Rahman.

Treasure of Trove of the Aging Workforce

...performance is being evaluated the same for everyone across the board. In addition to putting policies in place, organization can promote the value of diversity as a whole in their mission statement. Since there is more then just age discrimination that may occur in an organization, a mission statement that values all employees regardless of age, gender, marital status, or values demonstrates that the organization recognizes these differences as valuable assets. Ayub et al. (2015) states that “Managing diversity means acknowledgment people’s differences and recognizes these differences as valuable; it enhances good management practices by preventing discrimination and promoting inclusiveness.” Unfortunately, not just promoting and establishing policies will eliminate age diversity. Employees are only human and can’t always instantly change the way they think or act. An effective manager will have eyes and ears open looking for the cues as well as they will need to “eat there own dog food” consistently by leading as an example. Ayub et al. (2015) points out “Diversity initiatives depend on working philosophy of individual staff.” Aging workers can also help by taking action themselves. They can eliminate the age discrimination by staying current on the social trends, technology, and communicate. This will help them level the playing field and be just as good as the 27-year tech savvy social networker. Conclusion Perhaps instead of looking at an aging workforce negatively......

Mass Uprising 1969 in Bangladesh

...Mass Upsurge, 1969 started with the student unrest of 1968 against the tyrannical rule of ayub khan, President of Pakistan. The movement soon engulfed the whole of the then East Pakistan peasants, artisans, workers joined the movement almost en masse. Due to continuous exaction of undue demands the labouring class of the industrial belts and low and medium income groups soon turned the movement into a struggle for economic emancipation. The racial repression and the deprivation of the Bengalis within the frame work of Pakistan and, to the contrary, starting from the language movement the feeling of separate identity together with struggle for autonomy had direct influence on the mass upsurge of 1969. Indeed, this mass upsurge was the greatest mass awakening ever since the creation of Pakistan. The student agitation of sixty eight turned into a mass upsurge when Maulana abdul hamid khan bhasani asked his followers to besiege Governors House and formulated and declared his other programmes. As a part of joint programmes the National Awami Party (NAP) of Maulana Bhasani, East Pakistan Workers' Federation of Toaha and East Pakistan Peasants' Association Led by Abdul Huq arranged a public meeting at Paltan Maidan to observe the Repression Resistance Day on 6 December 1968.
