Purpose behind this blog.
I have a simple question for you. What do you think will be the state of Muslims in the west in 20 -30 years time? What do you think will be the most relevant issues the next generation of Muslims in the west will face? Will they even know or understand what Islam is as we do today?.Do we have the knowledge to explain to the next generation why they must remain firm on this religion when our very values such as the veil etc are being attacked?
Lets take a closer look at ourselves, What are we, as practicing muslims, living in the west doing about the problems we face? What are we doing to prevent the genocide that we fear will take place in 20 – 30 years time? People are thinking they will go back home. But home to where?
This blog has a very simple purpose Insha-Allah to open up the mind of the reader and ensure they now accept their responsibility of preserving our religion and of the correct understanding of Islam. Note this is not my understanding or your understanding and this is not a new understanding. Its the understanding we already have amongst some of our learned. All we must do is open up our heart and minds and pray to Allah for guidance and unity of this ummah!
Our vision and aim must be to ensure and safeguard that people stay in this religion in the next generation because they will face much harder times then us. And this can be done only through learning the religion from the scholars of Fiqh, the scholars of Usul, the scholars of Maqasid and then teaching this to others.
AL-Hassan told Mutarraf Ibn Abdullah “Preach your friends” Mutarraf replied “But I am afraid that I might preach what I do not practice myself.” Al-Hassan replied “May Allah have mercy upon! Which one of us does what he preaches? Satan wishes your position be prevailant upon muslims so that no one would enjoin Maroof and forbid Munkar!” [Beacon's of Light on the path of Dua't Dr Muhammed Jamil Ghazi]
This blog is my humble approach at redistibuting the knowledge which I have learn't
There are two main branches of knowledge Fiqh and Aqeedah. According to my Sheikh Sheikh Tawfeeqh Aqeedah takes about 2 years to study and Fiqh takes 10 years to master. May Allah guide us all to this understanding
May Allah dispel our fears and concerns for the next generation and make successful all our efforts in ensuring we remain firm to this perfect deen of ours.
