I’m currently sick, the flu….so I have been effectively offline for a couple of weeks now. However, I wanted to pass a couple of things on to my readers:
1. I didn’t get a chance to restart my radio show. God-willing I will be able to as early as this Friday, but Allah (swt) knows best. I have a lot of things on my mind and talking about it is a more efficient method for me. We shall see…
2. I just wanted to put it out there that as long as you have faith in God and believe in the universal spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood by the grace of God anything can be resolved. Without going into detail, I deleted for the first time a blog posting that was semi-critical of another Muslim’s commentary about the group in which I helped established. We both spoke candidly and in the spirit of brotherhood and the matter was resolved. Sometimes if you just extend and grab a hand and actually talk, things can be worked out. This is why we should always strive to enjoin in the good and forbid what is evil perhaps, we may find out that we are often on the same sheet of music, just playing different instruments.
وَلَا تَسْتَوِي الْحَسَنَةُ وَلَا السَّيِّئَةُ ادْفَعْ بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ فَإِذَا الَّذِي بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَهُ عَدَاوَةٌ كَأَنَّهُ وَلِيٌّ حَمِيمٌ (41:34)
41:34 But [since] good and evil cannot be equal, repel thou [evil] with something that is better// and lo! he between whom and thyself was enmity [may then become] as though he had [always] been close [unto thee], a true friend!
