Raise that eyebrow now…

An excellent point I heard over at one of the TV stations

    I agree. If these people can get together in the futile congregation of Raiwind; why can’t they, the green turbans, go up to the northern places and help people find their loved ones in the rubble. If only they knew what jihad actually is, relgious-political situation would have been MUCH better.

    i understand your emotions. you are right especially the ‘knowing what jihad really is’ part. but we really do not know if they already are planning to go there. please understand, a situation like this earthquake can not even afford anyone’s remarks on anyone else’s way/style of work; our aim should be clear like crystal — to help the folks over in the North.

    peace and pray y’all.

    I watched the same program and the intent of the scholar was not critical but more suggestive in nature. However, we should watch out for the unfortunate hidden agendas.

    Right now, since emotions are running high, we must strongly guard against any kind of negativity and cynicism, so that people do not get distracted from the single-minded mission: saving lives and providing logistical assistance. There will be plenty of time for everyone to vent later. They are working against overwhelming odds and negativity only results in loss of motivation and hope.

    We should avoid criticim, especially since we have no information regarding ground realities, as some of these good people may already be present and helping out — benefit of doubt.

    I urge you to help counter all criticism against anyone at all levels, as it is counter-productive and just does not solve anything. Watch yourself and others from making such statements in the next few hours and days.

    May Allah Bless our nation with his Glorious Mercy and Infinite Benevolence.
