KNOWLEDGE COMBINED WITH ACTION IS POWER


I received this info from my remissier at PM Securities a few years ago. Since then I had emailed it to a few friends. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said " Whoever seeks success in this world, knowledge is the tool, whoever seeks success in the hereafter, knowledge is also the tool. Whoever seeks success both in this world and the hereafter, knowledge is the tool too".

We have been enjoined in the Holy Quran to supplicate like this " O Lord, increase me in knowledge".


Education Is The Thing

There are only 14 million Jews in the world; seven million in the
Americas, five million in Asia, two million in Europe and 100,000 in
Africa.
For every single Jew in the world there are 100 Muslims.
Yet, Jews are more than a hundred times more powerful than all the
Muslims put together. Ever wondered why?

Jesus of Nazareth was Jewish.
Albert Einstein, the most influential scientist of all time and TIME
magazine's 'Person of the Century', was a Jew.
Sigmund Freud - id, ego, superego -- the father of psychoanalysis was a
Jew.
So were Karl Marx, Paul Samuelson and Milton Friedman.

Here are a few other Jews whose intellectual output has enriched the
whole humanity:

Benjamin Rubin gave humanity the vaccinating needle.
Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine.
Alert Sabin developed the improved live polio vaccine.
Gertrude Elion gave us a leukaemia fighting drug.
Baruch Blumberg developed the vaccination for Hepatitis B.
Paul Ehrlich discovered a treatment for syphilis (a sexually transmitted
disease).

Elie Metchnikoff won a Nobel Prize in infectious diseases.
Bernard Katz won a Nobel Prize in neuromuscular transmission.
Andrew Schally won a Nobel in endocrinology (disorders of the endocrine
system; diabetes, hyperthyroidism).
Aaron Beck founded Cognitive Therapy (psychotherapy to treat mental
disorders, depression and phobias).
Gregory Pincus developed the first oral contraceptive pill.
George Wald won a Nobel for furthering our understanding of the human
eye.
Stanley Cohen won a Nobel in embryology (study of embryos and their
development).
Willem Kolff came up with the kidney dialysis machine.

Over the past 105 years, 14 million Jews have won 15-dozen Nobel Prizes
while only three Nobel Prizes have been won by 1.4 billion Muslims
(other than Peace Prizes).

Why are Jews so powerful?

Stanley Mezor invented the first micro-processing chip.
Leo Szilard developed the first nuclear chain reactor.
Peter Schultz, optical fibre cable;
Charles Adler, traffic lights;
Benno Strauss, stainless steel; Isador Kisee, sound movies; Emile
Berliner, telephone microphone and Charles Ginsburg, videotape recorder.

Famous financiers in the business world who belong to Jewish faith
include Ralph Lauren (Polo), Levis Strauss (Levi's Jeans), Howard
Schultz (Starbuck's), Sergey Brin (Google), Michael Dell (Dell
Computers), Larry Ellison (Oracle), Donna Karan (DKNY), Irv Robbins
(Baskins & Robbins) and Bill Rosenberg (Dunkin Donuts)

Richard Levin, President of Yale University, is a Jew.
So are Henry Kissinger (American secretary of state), Alan Greenspan
(fed chairman under Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush), Joseph Lieberman,
Madeleine Albright (American secretary of state), Casper Weinberger
(American secretary of defence), Maxim Litvinov (USSR foreign Minister),
David Marshal (Singapore's first chief minister), Issac Isaacs
(governor-general of Australia), Benjamin Disraeli (British statesman
and author), Yevgeny Primakov (Russian PM), Barry Goldwater, Jorge
Sampaio (president of Portugal), John Deutsch (CIA director), Herb Gray
(Canadian deputy PM), Pierre Mendes (French PM), Michael Howard (British
home secretary), Bruno Kreisky (chancellor of Austria) and Robert Rubin
(American secretary of treasury)

In the media, famous Jews include Wolf Blitzer (CNN), Barbara Walters
(ABC News), Eugene Meyer (Washington Post), Henry Grunwald
(editor-in-chief Time), Katherine Graham (publisher of The Washington
Post), Joseph Lelyyeld (Executive editor, The New York Times), and Max
Frankel (New York Times).

Can you name the most beneficent philanthropist in the history of the
world?
The name is George Soros, a Jew, who has so far donated a colossal $4
billion most of which has gone as aid to scientists and universities
around the world.
Second to George Soros is Walter Annenberg, another Jew, who has built
a hundred libraries by donating an estimated $2 billion.

At the Olympics, Mark Spitz set a record of sorts by winning seven gold
medals.
Lenny Krayzelburg is a three-time Olympic gold medalist.
Spitz, Krayzelburg and Boris Becker are all Jewish.

Did you know that Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, Charles
Bronson, Sandra Bullock, Billy Crystal, Woody Allen, Paul Newman, Peter
Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk Douglas,
Goldie Hawn, Cary Grant, William Shatner, Jerry Lewis and Peter Falk are
all Jewish?

As a matter of fact, Hollywood itself was founded by a Jew.
Among directors and producers, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Oliver
Stone, Aaron Spelling (Beverly Hills 90210), Neil Simon (The Odd
Couple), Andrew Vaina (Rambo 1/2/3), Michael Man (Starsky and Hutch),
Milos Forman (One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest), Douglas Fairbanks (The
thief of Baghdad) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) are all Jewish.

To be certain, Washington is the capital that matters and in Washington
the lobby that matters is The American Israel Public Affairs Committee,
or AIPAC. Washington knows that if PM Ehud Olmert were to discover that
the earth is flat, AIPAC will make the 109th Congress pass a resolution
congratulating Olmert on his discovery.

William James Sidis, with an IQ of 250-300, is the brightest human who
ever existed.
Guess what faith did he belong to?

Question:
So, why are Jews so powerful?
Answer: Education.

Why are Muslims so powerless?
There are an estimated 1,476,233,470 Muslims on the face of the planet:
one billion in Asia, 400 million in Africa, 44 million in Europe and six
million in the Americas.

Every fifth human being is a Muslim; for every single Hindu there are
two Muslims, for every Buddhist there are two Muslims and for every Jew
there are one hundred Muslims.

Ever wondered why Muslims are so powerless?
Here is why:

There are 57 member-countries of the Organisation of Islamic Conference
(OIC), and all of them put together have around 500 universities; one
university for every three million Muslims.
The United States has 5,758 universities and India has 8,407.

In 2004, Shanghai Jiao Tong University compiled an 'Academic Ranking of
World Universities', and intriguingly, not one university from
Muslim-majority states was in the top-500.
As per data collected by the UNDP, literacy in the Christian world
stands at nearly 90 per cent and 15 Christian-majority states have a
literacy rate of 100 per cent.

A Muslim-majority state, as a sharp contrast, has an average literacy
rate of around 40 per cent and there is no Muslim-majority state with a
literacy rate of 100 per cent.

Some 98 per cent of the 'literates' in the Christian world had completed
primary school, while less than 50 per cent of the 'literates' in the
Muslim world did the same.
Around 40 per cent of the 'literates' in the Christian world attended
university while no more than two per cent of the 'literates' in the
Muslim world did the same.

Muslim-majority countries have 230 scientists per one million Muslims.
The US has 4,000 scientists per million and Japan has 5,000 per million.
In the entire Arab world, the total number of full-time researchers is
35,000 and there are only 50 technicians per one million Arabs (in the
Christian world there are up to 1,000 technicians per one million).
Furthermore, the Muslim world spends 0.2 per cent of its GDP on research
and development, while the Christian world spends around five per cent
of its GDP.
Conclusion: The Muslim world lacks the capacity to produce knowledge.

Daily newspapers per 1,000 people and number of book titles per million
are two indicators of whether knowledge is being diffused in a society.
In Pakistan, there are 23 daily newspapers per 1,000 Pakistanis while
the same ratio in Singapore is 360.
In the UK, the number of book titles per million stands at 2,000 while
the same in Egypt is 20.
Conclusion: The Muslim world is failing to diffuse knowledge.

Exports of high technology products as a percentage of total exports are
an important indicator of knowledge application. Pakistan's exports of
high technology products as a percentage of total exports stands at one
per cent. The same for Saudi Arabia is 0.3 per cent; Kuwait, Morocco,
and Algeria are all at 0.3 per cent while Singapore is at 58 per cent.

Conclusion
: The Muslim world is failing to apply knowledge.

Why are Muslims powerless?

Because we aren't producing knowledge.

Why are Muslims powerless?

Because we aren't diffusing knowledge.

Why are Muslims powerless?

Because we aren't applying knowledge.

And, the future belongs to knowledge-based societies.

Interestingly, the combined annual GDP of 57 OIC-countries is under $2
trillion.
America, just by herself, produces goods and services worth $12
trillion; China $8 trillion, Japan $3.8 trillion and Germany $2.4
trillion (purchasing power parity basis).

Oil rich Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait and Qatar collectively produce goods
and services (mostly oil) worth $500 billion; Spain alone produces goods
and services worth over $1 trillion, Catholic Poland $489 billion and
Buddhist Thailand $545 billion (Muslim GDP as a percentage of world GDP
is fast declining).

So, why are Muslims so powerless?
Answer: Lack of education.
Quality education to be exact.
Uncontaminated education to be precise.
