img_2381Personally I have nothing against any non-muslim. But when it comes to sects (Qadiani) that claim they are muslim and make other who are interested in Islam a non-muslim by following their beliefs. I do not like that at all. I also am not fond of the idea that maybe they by their work are making muslims, become non-muslims by becoming their followers. 

When A Brother Leaves His Prayer 

It sort of is a feeling like when one muslim prays all his prayers on the scheduled timings, but suddenly comes in the wrong group of people and leaves the salah. I would hate that to happen to anyone. In this case the other person who starts following their sect becomes a non-muslim. I hate that. In this case he doesn’t only leave his salah but also the religion Islam. 

What Concerns The Ummah, Must Concern Us 

Brotherhood in Islam is supposed to be that when anyone from our muslim brothers and sisters are in pain/suffering/decreasing in faith/guidance, it should worry us. If it doesn’t, we are not on the right path and haven’t got rid of bad feelings in our hearts for each other. Everyone does anything to help the situation according to their means. But not seeing it as an issue, is in itself an issue. 

Put Aside All Differences 

There won’t come someone from the outside to help us with this. We must put our differences aside and struggle to keep each other on the right faith. A person becoming an atheist/jewish/hindu/christian should also be our concern. But when Qadianis claim to label their belief with our belief they are misusing our name. That is not ok. 

We Need Tools To Decline Any Pressure 

Living in the west we can’t take it for granted that all of the next generations will stay muslims. That is why we must teach our children and youth – give them good tools so they can fight the troubles we meet living as a minority in the west. We must unite on this cause, if we want our generations to come to be an ongoing charity for us, when we are no more, and not generations that will send punishments to us, because they are not following Islam. The hope and fear a good muslim parents for their child to be good, must be pro-active. If the sect (Qadianis) or any other religion is actively trying to misguide our children. We must help them to be able to decline their pressure. We must give them the social environment and good friends, feeling loved and a part of our Ummah (not outsiders) strengthening brotherhood/sisterhood, so they won’t join other groups without being able to denounce the pressure of them preaching them wrong information/making them leave Islam.

Make Them Feel They Belong To Our Ummah 

Often i think when other faiths (sects) sees an outsider” they easily can give that person a feeling of belonging to a group. We need to accept our children and youth as they are and be patient with them following our ways. We must not once make them feel like they do not belong in the click in the mosque or any other group. Or that they are not good enough. That could easily make them feel like an outsider and an easy victim for someone preaching another belief.

An outsider” – An Easy Target

I’m afraid that even if one person leaves Islam because of this, we have not done enough to enlighten our youth that they are not on the right path. Now it is not merely about they having freedom to practice their deen. It is about the fact that they are misguiding our muslims to leave Islam. That is not ok. That is why our mosques in Norway must do more to keep us away from them. And we can’t do that without talking about how and why their belief is not Islam. The most important rizq we have is our faith and guidance. We can`t let anything or anyone jeopardize that. Giving a deaf ear to dangers we are facing is not a good tactic if we want to succeed. What faith and values we leave in our children should be our biggest concern. This is our real sarmaya, that will benefit us also in the hereafter. May Allah help us find solutions. Aameen.
