this a juristic issue and deep debate..
my take on the recent itv programme
why did they leave ........the dire need for an altruistic and pragmatic approach
im sure many have heard by now about the recent itv programme about apostates/atheists however its phrased.
i only have questions,they are genuine and also for reflection for the communities which they left.
some observations and assumptions first. yes ..i could be wrong
1 :it appeared the issues and grievances were with retrogressive culture and bad parenting primarily and not religion..i could be wrong
2 :vulnerable and lonely people were looking for love and support..i could be wrong
3parents and communities in their ignorance overreacted and in fact made the situation worse..i could be wrong
4:self righteousness and lazy cultural parenting along with an ignorance of the spiritual aspect of islam may be to blame..i could be wrong
5:the inability and refusal of the muslim community ,to address its own failings and rot constantly shoved under the proverbial carpet came to the surface..i could be wrong.
the carpet itself has now rotted away,and no new carpet will be able to cover the rot we constantly try to shove under it..of course...i may be wrong
murdering people on the streets makes things worse,calling for murder makes things worse,shunning people and not listening to them makes things worse.
ignoring people with doubt and confusion makes things worse.over reaction and ignoring the voice and feelings of those in deep pain and dilemmas makes things worse.shunning and excommunicating makes things worse.mocking and hunting and dehumanising someones daughter,son makes things worse
islam is a way of life which makes things better,it heals,it manages,it comforts.
it draws people near and embraces humanity without prejudice.
am i right?
AND ALLAH TAALA KNOW BEST
