After nearly 2+ decades of working with Reverts I know that they have issues, emotional baggage etc which needs to be discussed.Yes the Muslim community has problems but at the sametime our Reverts brothers (and particularly Sisters) also need to learn to cope.
We (immigrants) come to these countries for wrong or right reasons suffer Racism, undue discrimination but we cope. Yes we whine about it but we cope and we live with it.
We need to improve our communities no doubt (I agree) but Reverts also need to get a grip on the situation. There is plenty of support for Reverts for their well-being while almost NONE of existing Muslims. We have loads of single mothers, divorced Sisters in the community suffering and ONE WHITE SISTER and the whole community spring into action.
Nobody (much) cares about existing Pakistani and Gujrati Sisters. We have Brothers looking for work in our communities and ONE WHITE BROTHER and the entire Masjid is willing to trust and give them a job.
This is an open fact of our communities.
The Revert brother needs to be asked, "If you were working and your livelihood depended on your job and you were discriminated would you sit and home and quit? If not then why are you behaving like this with the house of Allah (SWT)?"
I am not saying that the Revert brother whom you are discussing is "white" but we (Asians) have serious issues which need to be seriously discussed.
Yes we should provide support to Reverts but there are tons within our communities who silently suffer 24/7 and their issues are just as real!
In my opinion Reverts are given much better treatement for support then existing Muslims. The difference is that some existing Muslims have family support (and Reverts obviously don't) and I admit but many of us (first generation immigrants) landed in these lands with little money and no education and nobody gave me a house, job or wife!
As I said I speak with 2+ decades of experience and not from my pocket.
Absolutely they should be helped and looked after but to what end? I am not claiming that (born) Muslims are perfect; ofcourse they are not! I am also not claiming that things can't be improved...
A Revert brother told me that when the Sahabah migrated from Makkah to Madina the Ansar gave half the properties and even offered to divorce one of their wives for their Muhajiroon brother.
P.S: I don't know the authenticity of these incidents but if you trust the incidents then it needs to be considered in full. How did the Sahabah who had migrated from Makkah behave to the help offered?
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
