Tragedy Befallen on the Muslim Ummah

The tragedy that has befallen the Muslim Ummah is heartbreaking. This is not confined only to Sri Lanka but has happened all over the world. The Muslims are despised and humiliated all over the world.ƒÆ’‚£ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¡‚¬We are very quick to point our fingers towards “others” for the despicable situation we have fallen into. We never bother to look at ourselves and do some self criticism and self evaluation which is the Islamic guidance. “You evaluate yourself before you are evaluated”.

 

I dare to say that we are the main reasons for this present sorry status. We have to blame ourselves before anybody else for the tragedy we have fallen into.ƒÆ’‚£ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¡‚¬The main root cause is that we have failed to win the hearts of the “others” or rather we have created an unbridgeable misunderstanding between us and others through our own actions and behaviors.

 

I am sure that I would be criticized as being “negative” and “pessimistic” but for me this is the reality. I cite a few of our actions that have alienated others or rather made others hate us:

 

1. Our actions and behaviors have made others feel that we have no patriotism towards Sri Lanka

 

2. We do not tolerant dissent and are hell bent on imposing our way of thinking on others. Several brotherly killings have taken place in the name of Islam such as in Beruwela, Udugoda, Elabodagama and so on. Mass suicide killings in Iraq, Afghanistan Pakistan and other Muslim countries in the name martyrdom are abhorrent.

 

3. We are greedy for money and more concerned with earning money by hook or by crook. Leaders in “kudu” (drug) dealing and under world gangs are Muslims. 18% of prisoners in Sri Lanka are Muslims while the Muslims in universities number 3

ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” 4%.

4. We are always fighting to reap the benefits produced by others not by ourselves. We have 800 odd Muslim schools but we are not worried about improving them but fighting with other “Hindu”, “Christian” and “Buddhist” schools and try to “infiltrate” their schools and “adulterate” their cultures by fighting for our “rights”. Does anyone from other communities fight to get admission to our schools?

 

5. We are boastful and proud of violating the rules of the country. We are in the forefront in smuggling, tax evasion, under-invoicing and bribing officials.

 

My point is that the present hatred and dreadful situation is the reaction to our actions. Those reactions are symptoms of some fatal diseases which need the urgent and collective remedy which we all are bound to find and put forward.

 

I am of the opinion – subject to correction – that just some lectures or TV programs wonƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t or rather do little.ƒÆ’‚£ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¡‚¬We must change our attitude and mentality and must win the hearts of other peoples through our behaviors. This may be not attractive and emotional but indispensable.

 

“ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦..Allah does not change what is in a nation unless they change what is in themselves. Whenever Allah wants evil for a nation, none can ward it offƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦.”

    I agree with what this writer says.

    Muslims live for the religion and die for the religion. Advancement of the religion is the priority and nothing else. As I understand that is what the Quran says.

    Religion should there to bring peace, love and happiness to everybody.

    If it creates any animosity, competition, and confrontational feelings, then there is a feeling.

    As I understand, Islam was created in order to unify warring and trading tribes in the middle east. IF a certain, tribe did not agree to this unification, that tribe was killed and eliminated.

    Agree with Mifly.

    It is fast becoming a problem around the world. I have travelled to many countries (76+) and in every country where there is a sizeable Muslim population, I have observed this trend. The problem that is happening now is two fold.

    Others are not letting it pass. Don’t expect that. They are ganging up on Muslims in return.

    Only peaceful sections of the Islam ideology should be promoted without the Arab cultural heritage. Unfortunately most non-Muslims today associate violence with Islam. This is the bitter truth. And they are powerful than the Muslims around the world, militarily. The result of a military confrontation is obvious. Avoiding it is MAINLY in the hands of Muslims, not others.

    However, I have my reservations on number 3 and 4.

    There are many non-Muslim drug dealers too although the majority are Muslims. It is no surprise. Drugs don’t come to SL from Columbia. Those are too expensive. Drugs come from Saudi and Afghanistan. So naturally Muslims have the edge in this business.

    e.g. Potta Naufer still is the biggest drug dealer in the country.

    I don’t call it “infiltration”. It is a very good thing to intermingle. The number of Muslim kids preaching nonsense is very small but sadly growing. Muslim kids should be given more university opportunities.
