Lets drop the emotion out of the issue and discuss problem for the sake of finding a resolution.
Shaytaan will always find ways to turn people against Muslims and Islam so that's a given. The issue here is our (own) Muslims.
I was speaking to a Maulana a few weeks ago and I said instead of making calls for uniting the Ummah demonstrate it with your action.
He asked me what I meant?
I said next time when Mufti Rafi Usmani (HA) comes to England ensure:
Why do all our Ulama insist on giving unity Bayans in 100% Deobandi Gujratee Masjids and Majalis? Who are they addressing???
I must add that it is not the fault of the Akabir as they don't live in this country (their programs are arranged by the local chamchay)
Nothing will change until the Ummah is pulling in one direction. We should admit our differences and move on.
He replied in typical Sufi fashion...
I am too much of a Junior to say something in front of my Akabir...Main Chota Aaadmi aur Akabir Kahan.
This same Maulana has a lot of influence but the issue is that if Mufti Taqi Usmani (HA) turned up in a Salafi (or at least a Non-Deobandi) Masjid it will make him look like a hyprocrite and that's the issue.
All of his talks, writings, blogs are about "Deoband Zandabad" so he can't take Mufti Taqi Usmani (HA) to a Non-Deobandi place, can he?
Mufti Taqi Usmani (HA) in turn doesn't live in UK so he has no clue which Mosque he should go to or whom he should visit. He is surrounded by people who are "Yes Sir, No Sir"...
Take a look at Twitter where someone posted a Selfie of a Hotel Room and it said:
Me sitting on the Sofa in Mufti Saheb's Hotel Room
How big of a Nafs do you have to have to post selfies on Mufti Taqi Saheb (HA)'s Sofa?
People should clearly begin to notice:
If only people knew what actually happens behind the scenes...
And you know the most astonishing thing?
Mufti Rafi Usmani (HA) gave the following talks on Unity and you have blogs from British and other Ulama negating his Bayans that he actually meant this or that
A large number laymen (Deobandees, Baralwees and Salafees) don't really have much to lose if the Ummah is united. Masjids, Institues and (certain) Ulama have a lot to lose. Masjid in UK openly say that they will lose Chanda if we had ONE EID! Problem now is that they are now loosing to Salafees who have Eidgahs up and down the country :lol
Islam is a Money-Maker and even the Neocons get that!
non sense year in year out.
We all know what steps to take and mean it. But for some reason Muslim's have the habit of doing a 360° turn and the Ulama have the innocence (excuse) to say, "They had no idea what was happening outside of the mosque".
Complete waste of resources, but hey, at least we can say "We did our bit"
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
