Description

- Different challenges faced by Muslims in the West compared to those in Muslim societies - Guiding principles regarding living as a minority according to the Ahlul Bayt - Submission vs respecting others - Rights of non-Muslims in a Muslim society - RIghts of Muslims towards one another - Shameful behaviour of Muslims in Pakistan - Causes and blame of these events "The guiding principle when dealing with non-Muslims is to be just and fair." "Muslim conquest took place during the first three Caliphs time. Ali didn't go for any conquest because his philosophy is not to impose religion by force. Rather you should introduce people by your behaviour and akhlaq." "When we talk about being kind, just, and fair to others, sometimes we are overwhelmed to the extent that we adapt their ways. We have to be careful, especially being a minority in this society. Do not take them as your masters." "If Islam teaches us to avoid oppression against others, what about being unjust to ourselves? We live in a time when we see the situation of Muslims shamefully reach its lowest level. Look at the Taliban, who have no respect for Muslims or non-Muslims. "On one hand the Taliban are sitting in negotiations with the Pakistani government, while on the other hand they are killing dozens of police officers in Karachi. There is no sense of honesty, integrity, or humanity at all." "I remember in a meeting with Ayatullah Ishaq Fayyaz with a delegation of Ulema, he was asked whether he considers the Salafi Takfiris as Muslims. His reply was very powerful. He said a person who looks at a dead soldier, cuts his chest open, cuts his heart out and tries to eat it, you think he is human? You are asking whether he is Muslim or not, I am questiong whether he is human or not." "The blame is always put on the outsiders, which is very easy. Yes, they are there, but the outsiders will only influence you if you allow them. In your personal life, can you blame Saitan for everything? No. You allowed him to influence you. The same problem exists within the Muslim Ummah. The problem is within, and the outsiders only take advantage of it."
