hey friends how is ur preparation for todays paper???
Being a third person and Reading all this I think tht you're correct.
Because it really distinguishes the people who ACTUALLY study from those who just "ratta-fy" the questions.
So yeah you've got a correct point, but I think that guess papers are only the reason why CIE change the paper patterns, so it's better not to do such things. And it's better to not do such things because no where else do such things are done except for pakistan and we are ourselves degrading the name of Pakistan and then we say "Hamare mulk ke halaat kharaab hain." Guys we have to change ourselves so wake up or else it will be too late!

2013 Q2 Answer
Al-Ikhlas is not merely the name of this Surah but also the title of its contents, for it deals exclusively with Tauhid. The other Surahs of the Quran generally have been designated after a word occurring in them, but in this Surah the word Ikhlas has occurred nowhere. It has been given this name in view of its meaning and subject matter. Whoever understands it and believes in its teaching, will get rid of shirk (polytheism) completely. Amir bin at-Tufail said to the Holy Prophet: "O Muhammad, what do you call us to? “The Holy Prophet replied: "To Allah. “Amir said: "Then, tell us of what He is made, whether of gold, silver, or iron?" Thereupon this surah was sent down. So the subject matter of this early Makkan Sura is Tauheed. It outlines the most fundamental and cardinal aspects the essence and nature of Allah to Whose service and worship Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) invited people that He is absolutely one in entity as well as in attributes as the Quran says “And your God is one God…..” (2:163). The name of the surah ‘Ikhlas’ teaches purity of faith serves as an antidote to every form of shirk (associating partners with Allah) as Allah says:“……there is no god but I; therefore worship me and serve me “(21:25). He has no one to share in his lordship of the whole universe as he is ‘Ahad’ and the One on whom all of the creation depends upon for their needs and their requests as he is ‘As-Samad’.Muslims recite this surah in daily prayers in order to reiterate rejection of shirk. It is so important that the holy prophet declared it equivalent to one third of the Quran. Its theme is so important that the Quran repeatedly mentions this: “and your God is one God” (2:163, al-Baqarah) and “God! There is no God but He” (2:255). Belief in Tawhid, in turn affects the conduct of Muslims as they develop a strong sense of God’s presence and knowledge.
Ibn Marduyah has cited Hadrat Abdullah bin Abbas, Hadrat Abdullah bin az-Zubair and Hadrat Aishah as saying that this Surah is Makki. Kalbi and Muqatil also regard it as Makki, and the same is the view held by the majority of commentators.In Surah Alam Nashrah: "And We exalted your renown for you. “That is, "Though the enemies are trying to defame you throughout the country, We, on the contrary, have arranged to exalt your name and fame. “And: "The fact is that along with every hardship there is also ease. “That is, "You should not be disheartened by the severity of conditions at this time; this period of hardships will soon pass, and the period of success and victory will follow." It mentions God’s special care for the Holy Prophet (SAW) in time of difficulties. The Prophet was mocked by the Makkans on the death of his sons from Khadija (RA). God consoled him by promising him abundance of success “Verily He has granted you the found of abundance” (108:1) and in Surah Al-Duha Allah Says: “And your future will be better than the present.” and destruction of the ones who insulted him. He told the prophet to remember God through regular prayer and to develop the spirit of sacrifice so that he could continuously strengthen his bond with God and to get constant divine support “Say truly my prayer and my service of sacrifice, my life and my death (all) for, the Cherisher of the worlds” (6:162). like surah 93, teaches Muslims to have faith in God’s support that surely teaches the noble people. The holy prophet was assured of “abundance” in the face of persecutions in Makka. This “abundance” came in the form of his countless followers and his descendants through his daughter Fatima. His insulters, on the other hand, perished forever. So, a noble mission always survives though it is rejected by the misguided people. The Quran testifies to it: “rejected were the Messengers before you; with patience and constancy they bore their rejection“(6:34, al-An’am).
