Muhammad Dilwar Hussain – Selectively Enjoining the Good

“It is somewhat easy to selectively “enjoin in good” these days by handing out roses and samosas whilst wearing apologetic sloganised t-shirts. But to consistently “forbid the evil” in public is arguably more difficult, and requires a certain level of conviction, courage and wisdom, especially at such heightened times.

Theological and political differences aside, I have much respect for the dying minority of brothers who still hold dawah stalls and fearlessly call the people to Islam, whilst delivering stern reminders to Muslims.

I’m not saying other styles and approaches don’t work in softening the hearts of the people, I’m sure they do. But the point here is *consistency* and *uncompromising*.”

Abu Ibraheem Hussnayn – Western (and Westernized Muslim’s) Definition of Terrorism

If it’s a missile that kills hundreds and it’s fired from a western tank or plane – it isn’t terrorism; even when women and children form the majority of those who are murdered.

If it’s a knife-wielding man acting on his own and he happens to be Muslim, by default it is terrorism.

If the same man isn’t Muslim, it isn’t terrorism and he is mentally unstable, even if he takes a gun and kills only certain people of a certain faith.

Such is the world that we live in.

Upon us is to repel evil with that which is better. To be proud of our Islam and not let the shayateen make us apologetic.

~ Abu Ibraheem Hussnayn
