Remember Muslim brotherhood?

Thursday, April 14, 2011

The ban on face-covering in France went into effect last Monday. Don't worry my post is not about that, i am sure you all must have read enough on it already and its not like my opinion matters or anything.
What i noticed was that most of our Pakistani people, while commenting on the ban, said 'We have enough problems of our own, we don't have to worry about what France does.' I was thinking about it and remembered a hadith i had read long ago, it says:

“The Muslim Ummah is like one body. If the eye is in
pain then the whole body is in pain and if the head is
in pain then the whole body is in pain” ~ Muslim and Bukhari

I know i am no scholar and neither am i a perfect momin but i have enough common sense to interpret what this hadith means. Whether its the ban on face-veil in France or the continuous oppression on the people of Palestine it does affect us! Our religion continually tells us about all Muslims being joined together in one brotherhood, does that not mean anything to you? You don't have to go on strikes for them if you don't want to but we all need to realize that everything that happens around the world to any Muslim does affect us.
We need to stop fooling ourselves.
