There is no Hikmat in cowardice. An Imam is not just for leading Salah. They're for leading communities as well. Check up what Imam actually means.
Hikmat is used as an excuse nowadays. Hikmat is when you allow one thing in order to accomplish something better. Nothing is accomplished here except that men cannot enter the Masjid if they don't do pardah. Kids have left madrasa, everyone has gone on a Zoom bandwagon. You got grandpa police standing at doors telling children to mask or the Masjid might get fined. Accepting illegal tyranny, no knowledge of the law and obeying every command stripping basic human rights bit by bit is not Hikmat and is surely not an Imam.
I reply harshly when my points are twisted and the issues and people I'm bringing to light are given excuses for consequently accepting and agreeing with wrongdoings.
The truth is that we are pathetic and weak and this is what hurts most egos. Seeing pastors stand up, 100's of thousands of white people marching for basic human rights while Muslims sit at home muzzling their faces and Imams and committees giving in to every order until Masjids are literally shut down. I share one example of a real Imam of Christians and it shatters the ego and nerves of some.
Some even try to use the political tactic of smearing to discredit the positive actions of a person as witnessed earlier in the thread.
Hikmat can be said in early stages but when access is denied to a public Masjid a year later based on a clear, proven and admitted agenda and hoax then it's cowardice, not Hikmat. People can remain brainwashed and dumbed down to worship TV but the Imam has no excuse to be this badly misinformed. They will be questioned and I want to be proven wrong here.
