We want to highlight the following comment made by brother Salah in response to the article here at 1MuslimNation about How Ataturk Destroyed Islam in Turkey. He shares with us some sad experiences he has had and witnessed with some Muslims from various countries. The following are his words;
Remember though, we cannot blame the Turkish people themselves. Yes they have been seduced and become under influence of Freemasonic Secular system. But just look at the Arab countries and the Arab people themselves.
While Turks have modernised themselves slightly, Arabs are such backward people. I also live in UK, and i live in a community with many Muslims, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Arabs consisting of Saudis, Omanis, Iraqis and Libyans.
I believe it is the very basic way Arabs lead their lives, and the way they have become which is why i believe Allah is not really helping the muslim world.
Along with Ataturk and the young Turks, the Arabs also become nationalistic, adding fuel to the Turkish/Arab divide. But its not just nationalism, its unity among Arabs themselves. The Saudis hate the Omanis, the Omanis hate the Saudis, the Iraqis hate Saudis, Libyans hate Saudis and so on. I am a friend of many of these people and they all say…”Oh the Omani, he is not Muslim, they are dirty people.” The Iraqi says, “The Saudis..they are dirty they believe they are better then evryone.” Bla bla etc.
The arabs clearly hate each other. They have gone completely against the VERY BASICS of islam. I have a Saudi man living next door to me, and he locks his wife in the house all the time. I hear arguments through the walls all the time. Next door to them an Iraqi lives, and the Iraqi who understand Arabic tells me, the woman is fed up with her life, she can never go out only with the man.
Arabs now believe they the “SUPERIOR” Muslims compared to others. I know a man who openly says: “The prophet was arab, we are arab, it makes us better then you.”
Yet hes completely forgotten the verses of the Quran, and what The prophet himself said in his last speech!
“An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood.”
Now ask yourself, is this Islam? This type of Islam is also being used in Saudi Arabia. Women were allowed out…by themselves in teh days of the prophet. Women had freedom. Now the saudis themselves give them nothing. Is there any wonder why Saudis are under constant attack from the west about their lifestyle?
I also have an uncle living in the UAE. He says there is a big community of Palestinians there. He says all the world feels sorry for what is happening in Palestine, but when u meet the Palestinians in the UAE, and how they believe they are better then everyone, how they act and how they behave, you no longer feel sympathetic for the Palestinians.
Now everyone ask yourselves, why are Muslims in the state we are in today? I believe it is simple. As well as going astray, commiting shirk, not staying committed to the ways Islam teaches us to be like, i believe the problem lies in our very own homes.
As I’ve said before, for Allah to really help us, we must first change and help ourselves. Only then will Allah change the condition of a people, and in this topic, specifically the Arab nations. I pray to Allah always, asking him for there to come the time where we all unite under one banner to come swiftly. Inshallah it will be soon.
