"To comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable"

Eid Mubarak to my MUSLIM, Sunni, Selafi friends ONLY


I want to talk about our Muslim Eid, the murder of a young Muslim girl in the UK and the hate among Muslims, for this poor girl because of her sect.

Yes, Eid al-Fitr translates as “Festival” is upon us, today in some places, tomorrow in others and depending on which sect one belongs to, day after tomorrow in other areas.. This is the time when Ramadan ends and Haj, the annual Muslim pilgrimage begins. Muslims from all over the world, converge at Mecca to perform their once-in-a-lifetime, Islamic obligation. At Haj, there are no distinctions of wealth, race, sect, gender, national origin or anything else, we ALL stand among equals. We celebrate as equals and we wish each other “Eid Mubarak” (“Blessed Festival”) as Muslims, we even share it with our non-Muslim friends. Eid Mubarak!

But then something happens. Our cultivated biases take over, we become sectarian and regard everyone who does not belong to our narrow club within Islam, (Shia, Sunni, Sufi, Selafi, etc.,etc.,) as heretics who have abandoned Islam, worthy of out hate, our revulsion and even of our violence. From the Atlantic to the far shores of Indonesia, Muslims have traditionally been accepting and tolerant of other sects and of other faiths. This bubble of tolerance and peace was eroded when the House of Saud made its alliance with Abdul Wahhab of the “Wahhabi” (officially, ‘Selafi’) notoriety and began attacking all other sects as perversions of Islam. Still, it remained limited to the Arabian peninsula for a very long time. The Saudi brand of Wahhabi intolerance got its first major opportunity to expand during the US-Soviet proxy war in Afghanistan, the US needed to recruit young Afghans and train them to hate the Soviets. What better message than that the Soviets were Godless people occupying Afghanistan and who better to teach them than Saudi-trained teachers in Madressas set up for this purpose by the CIA?
Thus began the creation of the Mujahideen who morphed into Al-Qaeda, who morphed into ISIS and Al-Nusrat. Hate found its major foundation and role, funded by US tax dollars.

The intolerance took hold and took wing, it spread throughout the Muslim world, especially among the less affluent who sent their children to Madressas where the teachers were also trained directly or indirectly, by the House of Saud’s Wahhabis.
A fanatic is a man who does what he thinks the Lord would do, if He knew the facts of the case.” (Finley Peter Dunne-Chicago Tribune)

Less than a week ago, a 19-year old Muslim girl was shot to death on Britain. Before the hue and cry was over, people moved to help her family as best as they could. One Muslim man set up a GoFundMe site where others began to send money, everything was going well until someone got in touch with this young man who then posted:
“I didn’t know she was Shia”. Then
“Can someone help me cuz I wanna be in situation were (sic.) all this could go against me on the day of judgement”. Then
“I put so much effort in my first ever fundraising project and almost reaching the goal and this happens Suhanallah”
The young fellow got in touch with GoFundMe to have the donations returned because the Muslim girl was considered to be a heretic.

Someone else posted a comment, “It is totally permissible to reject and hate Rafidhism…”. “Rafidhis” are considered by some Sunnis, as people who attack the three righteous disciples of the prophet Mohammed. Imam Ali, being the fourth righteous disciple, is not counted. As such, Rafidhis i.e. Shia, are considered as committing “Shirk” (rejecting God or the oneness of God) and therefore, subject to death.

Nowhere in the Quran, is this intolerance stated but the fanatical machine that mired in hate, creates fantasy and fiction to bolster, support and unite Muslims. Instead, they end up shattering Muslims apart, the main business of Muslims…Sunni Muslims…these days, appears to be to spread intolerance to prove how devout they themselves are. The Ignorant teach the Ignorant, The Ignorant accept the fanatical, hate-filled, teachings of others who are equally as ignorant but cloaked in the garb of “scholars” and therefore, unassailable by the lower strata of The Ignorant.

The tragedy of a poor, young girl, shot in broad daylight is lost because from underneath every slimy rock, emerges sectarian hate and intolerance.

Eid Mubarak my brothers and sisters. May God grant that we Muslims love Humanity as God told us to do, instead of splitting the world into groups of Believers (a tiny amount of their own), Unbelievers and Heretics.
Oh, and give me my Eid back please.

  1. It goes with us non-believers as well.
    A piece of news that can give solence

    German church opens its doors to Muslims amid restrictions on Eid celebrations.

    As Muslims around the world this weekend prepare to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, a church in Berlin has opened its doors to let Muslims hold Friday Prayer while observing strict social distancing because of the pandemic.

    The Dar Assalam mosque in Berlin has been able to welcome only a fraction of Muslim worshipers during Ramadan because of national rules on social distancing. So the Martha Lutheran church in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin, the German capital, stepped in to help.

    “During prayer, I could only say yes, yes, yes, because we have the same concerns and we want to learn from you,” the church pastor, Monika Matthias, told Reuters. “And it is beautiful to feel that way about each other.”

  2. Takfiris are part of the empire’s plot to divide and rule Muslims. Takfiris which include ISIS (Daesh), Al Qaeda and Talibans have killed more Muslims than any other single entity. Takfiri is not sect, it is a sick state of mind that is not based on intellect and reasoning.

    Muslims united and together is their kryptonite. We should all be against all oppressors and tyrants and with all the oppressed (regardless or cast, creed, religion or sect).

    As late Imam Khomeini RA said, we are debating whether to open our hands or fold them during prayers while the enemies of Islam are conspiring to cut our hands.
