an anniversary, of sorts…

Howdy ya’ll! I hope everyone is having an absolutely splendid Ramadan…

Synkronyzer (aka Imam Abdul Rahman Chao) takes an interesting look at the Magna Carta Unity Based on Renewal and Guidance…one year on.

Since we are in the blessed month of Ramadan, I’ll hold back my critiques of this “pledge” – but I do intend on expanding upon it soon, Allah willing. Needless to say, Synkronyzer takes a truly fair and balanced approach in his commentary on this Unity pledge. For those who are concerned … don’t worry! There will be plenty of “gyrating hips” and establishment of the “Haaaaq” (pronounced HA-cK) to look forward to in his commentary.

Anyway here is just a taste that I felt encapsulated the entire post (yep … I’m giving you a taste like a dealer around the corner so that you’ll get hooked):

“If unity is the true issue, then let’s have all the signatories come up with concrete steps. The longer this drags on the more people are going to view that this pledge is a blank check to legitimize opposing views which is not the point of this pledge. We should treat the problems that Muslims are facing and not mumble over it and watch immature groupies scream at each other defending the honor of this teacher at this institute or another.”

Synkronyzer, Did you ever know that your my hero? … Everything I would like to be? I could flyyyyyyy higher than an eagle … because you are the wind beneath my wings!

nyne-elevin: a day of morning

Posted by abu ameerah on Thursday, September 11, 2008

Last year at this time I was mourning food … this year I’m mourning for the continued loss in the collective sanity of the Muslim Ummah. It isn’t easy being a Muslim these days – but then again when in history has it ever been easy being Muslim? The difficult period that we find ourselves in is not surprising given the geopolitical realities of the world over the last few years. All that aside, today I simply want to state my lack of trust and faith in national Muslim organizations in this country. I don’t particularly care for these organizations, their leaders, or their agendas. These organizations don’t speak for me as a Muslim and I have nothing to do with them. I just felt like stating that today.
