    Splitting the Ummah

    You say you’re a Muslim yet you try to divide the Ummah.

    You divide it by saying Arabs, Pakistanis, Bengalis and Gujarat’s should live separate lives.
    You say that we are all different, maybe so yet we are still Muslims.

    Traditions, culture and nationalism are wrong it’s just the way we were raised we are Muslims not a Pakistani, Gujarati or Bengali!

    The numeral 786 in no way represent ‘Bismillahi Rahmaani Raheem’ and is not the Sunnah way. 'Bismillahi Rahmaani Raheem' great significance in the Quran and Muslims are ordered to begin any work but in the names Allah, not in the number of '786' or any other substitution.

    Pakistanis use their flag to celebrate EID (what’s that got to do with anything – its not Pakistan celebrations it’s EID!).

    The older generation still haven’t grasped the idea of true Islam they just believe what they were taught back home onto us. This culture and tradition must stop, they must understand we are all one and not blame each others backgrounds.

    I have so much to discuss yet so little time and space! We need to teach the elders now and younger generation to come that we must change the way we live in order to let our Ummah talk as one and not divide.

    However, you must understand that most of the trouble around the world comes from Muslim on Muslim fighting, so in that case you can’t blame Muslims being arrested. The only reason why we would disagree with such act is that we are biased as we are Muslims.

    We have so many problems around the world (Muslims) which include: Iraq war on Saddam, Palestine V Israel, Saudi Arabia royal family, Guantanamo Bay, Iran & Syria, Sudan abuse, Kashmir division and we also have the tsunami waves that killed thousands…etc

    People complain without even looking at the bigger picture...! Stop trying to divide our Ummah…

    I agree with you brother, we are ONE ummah.

    I think inter-racial marriage is key. I'm Kashmiri, my grandmother is Afghan, one of my auntie's is an English revert, another one is turkish, I have an Iranian uncle whose step mum is filipino, my brother in law is Arab and cousin just got married to a chinese Muslim!

    Being a part of such a mixed family has made me so much more understanding of other cultures, and im not overly nationalistic, my identity as a Muslim comes before anything else. The best thing is I get to eat chinese, arab, turkish, persian and asian food at weddings and reunions :D

    So I would encourage inter-racial marriage as a means of further unity amongst our Ummah.

    Salaam,

    Mashallah. I believe Islam is going through a transition right now. Many of our parents and older generation family members tend to be nationalistic, but the young and knowledge thirsty are the ones correcting their errors - inshallah

    1 UMMAH
