CONTINUE WITH UMMAH DISCUSSION AND ANSWER LAST QUESTIONS…

MAJOR CURES FOR SECTARIANISM

——————————————————–

THESE NOTES WERE TAKEN BY ME AND ANY ERRORS IN NOTE TAKING ARE MINE AND SHOULD NOT REFLECT ON THE SCHOLARS WHOSE WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE WE WERE BLESSED TO HAVE IMPARTED UPON US AT THIS GATHERING. PLACES WHERE I HAVE LOST TRACK OF OR COULD NOT UNDERSTAND THE FULL MEANING OF THE TEACHER I HAVE PLACED ..?

I POST THESE NOTES FROM THE KNOWLEDGE RETREAT 2007, FOR THE PURPOSE OF SPREADING AND SHARING KNOWLEDGE. IF ANYONE DERIVES BENEFIT FROM IT, ALHAMDU’ILLAH.

——————————————————–

UMMAHTU WAHIDA – ONE NATION AND AM YOUR LORD SO BE MINDFUL OF ME

WORSHIP YOUR LORD AS ONE COMMUNITY – WILLINGNESS TO IMPLEMENT HIS ORDERS

EBRAHIM WAS AN UMMAH – A NATION A LEADER – TODAY IN DESPERATE NEED OF LEADERSHIP AND TO LEAD THIS NATION – NEED THE YOUTH – NOT PEOPLE OVER THE HILL LIKE HIM! 🙂

BE A JUST LEADER – NOT FOLLOW HARAM THINGS – NOT DEVIANT PEOPLE – IF YOU LEAD PEOPLE WILL FOLLOW – WANT POSITIVE ROLE MODELS – ARE DESPERATE FOR MODELS – NOT THE VOGUE TYPE! 🙂

SUICIDE IS A SOCIAL ILL – SIGN OF DESPERATION – PEOPLE NEED HOPE FROM ALL THE FOOLISHNESS – COURAGE OF EBRAHIM – COURAGE TO DIVORCE HIMSELF OF SOCIETY’S STANDARDS – COURAGE TO BE DIFFERENT – COURAGE TO BE GENEROUS – INTEGRITY

HONOR IN FULFILLING THE PURPOSE OF THE HUMAN BEINGS – TO WORSHIP ALLAH – INSTINCTUALLY OBEDIENT IN NATURE – THE TREES MAKES PROSTRATION –

BE NOT OF THE IDOLATERS – DIFFERENT TYPE OF SHIRK WHICH IS WORSHIP OF THE SELF – TAKING THE INCLINATION OF THE SOUL AS HIS GUIDE – THE CAPRICE – SHAITAN EXPLOITS THIS WEAKNESS – IF IT FEELS GOOD JUST DO IT – SURRENDER TO YOUR DESIRES THE MOTTO FOR LAS VEGAS SIN CITY – OBEY YOUR THIRST SPRITE –

SUPPRESS YOUR DESIRES IS WHAT MOTTO SHOULD BE FOR JANNAH WILL BE YOUR REWARD – ONE OF THE SIGNS OF DAY OF JUDGMENT COMING – GOOD WILL BE MADE TO BE BAD AND VICE VERSA – INEPT WILL LEAD AND WILL BE LEADERS AND WILL HOLD PUBLIC OFFICE – SEE THE MODERN DAY EXAMPLE OBVIOUS WHO THAT IS

GREATEST CURES FOR SECTARIANISM – HEALTHY UNITY NOT UNIFORMITY – IS LOVE!!

LOVE HOLDS MAN AND WOMAN TOGETHER – MADE FOR YOUR SPOUSES AND MADE BETWEEN THEM LOVE AND MERCY

LOVE WILL HOLD THIS UMMAH TOGETHER – PARABLE LIKENESS OF WHICH THE MUTUAL LOVE FOR EACH OTHER

REMOVE BARRIERS FROM LOVING EACH OTHER – FIRST IS JEALOUSY – DON’T ENVY ONE ANOTHER – OPENS THE GATES TO ALL TYPES OF TRIBULATIONS – SHOULD PRAY FOR INCREASE IN THE OTHER PERSON RATHER THAN OPPOSITE – SUPPRESS HUMAN NATURE

DON’T CONSPIRE AGAINST YOUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS – DON’T TURN AWAY FROM EACH OTHER – WHEN WE COME TOGETHER LITERALLY OUR HEARTS COME TOGETHER – OUR HEARTS ARE FACING OUTWARD UNLIKE OTHER ANIMALS – THEY FACE EACH OTHER

DON’T DESPISE AND LOOK DOWN ON EACH OTHER – EVERY MUSLIM IS SACRED TO THEIR FELLOW MUSLIM – BOND HAS BEEN SANCTIFIED – WILL NOT BELIEVE UNTIL LOVE ONE ANOTHER AND UNTIL YOU WANT FOR YOUR B WHAT YOU WANT FOR YOURSELF

GREETING WITH SALAM IS A GREETING OF WARMTH AND PEACE AND LOVE AND SAFETY

I WILL LESSEN YOU OR DIMINISH YOU IN ANYWAY WHEN SAY SALAAM

WE HAVE TO SAFE FROM THE TONGUE AND HAND OF EACH OTHER – WEB BLOGS INCLUDED HERE AS AN EXAMPLE – HE SAID THIS ABOUT SO AND SO DID YOU HEAR THAT SO AND SO DENIES THAT AND WAS ACTUALLY THE FAULT OF SO AND SO ETC.. – NONSENSE AVOID IT AND BE MINDFUL OF

SAY TO THEM IF THE WEALTH THE FAMILY THE ETC IF THEY ARE MORE BELOVED TO YOU THEN TELL THEM THEY ARE MISGUIDED AND NONE CAN GUIDE THEM EXCEPT ALLAH

FOR THE LOVE OF DUNYA IF REBEL AGAINST ALLAH THEN CONSEQUENCES – LOVE OF ALLAH SHOULD BE AT THE TOP – IF NOT WE WILL BE RUINED AND DESTROYED

UMMAH THAT SHOULD BE ONE THAT KNOWN TO STRIVE AND STRUGGLE – IF THINGS AS MINORITY GET SO BAD FOR US HERE WE DON’T FORM UNDERGROUND CELLS AND RESIST – WE SHOULD JUST PACK UP AND LEAVE – HIJRAH CONCEPT

HAVE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF WHAT WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN – WITHIN OUR CAPACITIES

SAME FORCES THAT WANT TO MAXIMIZE THE PROFITS OF EVERY SINGLE COW THOSE FORCES ARE ALSO AT WORK IN CANADA AND WE HAVE TO WORK AND STRUGGLE AGAINST THEM AS MUSLIMS –

MUSLIMS ARE BORED – HOW? THERE IS SO MUCH WORK TO BE DONE – GET INVOLVED DO ACTION – SMALL STEPS

IF HAVE NO COMPASS – HAVE NO GUIDANCE – ANALOGY

MORE QUESTIONS

MOON SIGHTING VS. MOON FIGHTING – IF RELY ON SAUDI WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT – NOT SUNNAH – IMPOSSIBLE FOR SAUDI TO SEE THE MOON EVERY MONTH FOR EVERY OCCASION –

LOVING YOUR ENEMIES – DON’T BE THE OPPRESSOR AND DON’T BE THE OPPRESSED – A QUESTION OF KNOWING YOUR ENEMY – PRAY FOR THEIR GUIDANCE IF NOT GUIDED MAY ALLAH DESTROY THEM – WE ARE MUSLIM MINORITY HERE NEED TO LIVE IN PEACE

STRATEGICALLY WE CANNOT RESIST THEM – MILITARILY EITHER – WE DON’T HAVE THE POWER TO DO ANYTHING – NO MILITARY POWER TO DO ANYTHING – SOME LOOKING FOR US TO BE PROVOKED AND REACT BADLY AS AN EXCUSE TO ATTACK MUSLIM LANDS – WE HAVE TO BE MINDFUL OF OUR INDIVIDUAL ACTIONS AND REACTIONS WITHIN THE WIDER SOCIETY
