Ramadan outrage

Anger and outrage.

Most likely, that will end up being a common ‘theme’ when I post.

We’re nearing the end of Ramadan and murders happen.  It makes me wonder if these murderers even took part in the Blessed Month.  Whether they had fasted and helped those they could help.

Perhaps, for them, the fast only resulted in hunger…

There are far too many misguided, ill-educated and misinformed people around, and not just with regards to the Sunni-Shia divide/differences.  The S-S differences, however, shed blood.  Lots of it.

A lot of what we’ve been seeing over the years is through various ‘leaders’ within Muslim communities inciting and encouraging such…animosity.

There’s no need for that.

Yes, we have our differences but at the base level (and on this numerous scholars agree) we’re Muslim.  Are there deviants out there?  Yes.  Are we ‘supposed’ to kill them?  Generally, no.  Why ‘generally’?  Well, if they’re creating mischief in the land, inciting, killing, etc, then the onus is on us to fight back; we, however, are not meant to oppress or transgress.

(I'm going to avoid a rant...for now...)

To Allah (swt) we belong and to Him we return.
