"Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception." (Al Imran Chapter 3 verse 185)

Ring the alarm…the situation is lacking Islam.

I take a deep breath and stare into the horizon. The grey sky is above me and the soles of my feet rest on the cold concrete below. Thoughts fill my mind like the psychedelic colours of the seventies. Whirling round and round on a wheel of fortune and I hold my breath waiting for the it to stop. Where would it stop……what would fate hand us this time?

Ethiopia has started air raids on Somalia. Yea….more poor people are losing their lives. A civil war that has been going on for 16years. Now though it is called Jihad. The interim government and the UIC are now the centre of attention. One wants to rule by Islam and the other wants to rule. Ok…I might be coming out in favour of the UIC but they have made the most visible changes in the region. The streets are cleaner, khad is banned and they are trying to abolish tribalism. The Somalis in Somalia for once actually looked happy and content. The place was starting to look a country and less like an abandoned land. People were migrating back…..
I know there is a fear that the UIC might turn into the next Taliban. Banning anything and everything….but I don’t think they will turn into the Taliban. I think most of the bad press that has been surrounding them has been propaganda. I don’t mean that all they do is justified. They are some people with twisted morals flying under the banner of Islam. You can’t expect everyone to be perfect and on the moral high horse. There will always be the good, the bad and the ugly.
The fear is that this war is gonna become a full out war that affects the neighbouring countries to Somalia. Ethiopia is already involved and because of the political tension that’s rife in all of East Africa…..other countries in the region might get involved. This might turn into a Muslim vs. other war. It was a stupid move to have Ethiopia involved in this. Somalis are sensitive where Ethiopia is concerned…..they are a sore wound where Somalia is concerned. Having them support the interim government means rubbing salt on the wound causing most to turn against the government. The problems should have been sorted without outside influence. If a mediator was necessary then a less controversial figure (not Ethiopia) should have been appointed.

The African union has been trying to sort the political situation in Sudan. The UN wants to get involved; the West wants to interfere once again to sort out the problem of the people of the East. After all we are not civilised to sort out our own problems. Problems caused by the borders created by the ‘civilised world’ and maintained by the leaders of the ’uncivilised’

The thorn in every Muslim's Olmert has approved 100million for Palestine…..makes you wonder why the sudden generosity. I mean the Hammas leader was refused entry to his country just a few days ago because he was carrying money for his country. By the way he was a leader who has been democratically elected. But democracy only works when it is approved by Israel and the West, because the rest of the world is lacking the ‘skills’ in making such important decisions. So, back to giving the money to Abbas….they are trying to turn Hammas and Fatah against each other.

Lebanon has protesting to have Senora step down. They have had enough….they don’t need someone who just bum licks to the west. A Labrador aint fit as a leader. They have woken up and smelt the manure….their nasal tracts are opening up and the smell is foul. Something needs to be done.

Then there is the unanimous UN vote that sanctions should be imposed on Iran. Of course because they are thinking with their own mind and they want to enjoy the luxury of feeling secure. But what were they thinking? This is a privilege that only Israel can enjoy in this region because the rest are unable to make civilised decision.
In Iraq it’s the same story of Sunni and Sh’ia fighting. One thing they do have in common is that they don’t want outside influence. The occupation must pack up and leave…..

What do all these countries share? They have been turned against each other by the ones who have vested interests. The case of Somalia, Iraq and Sudan it is the ever volatile oil. And in Iran, Palestine and Lebanon it is the national security of Israel that is at risk. Muslims cannot be defeated from outside; the only way to break them is from the inside and this is happening. Our iman is low and aqeedah practically non-existent because of the many outside influences. We are loosing it people and we are loosing it bad. These problems are self made…it is because we weakened our foundation and barriers that the cracks are turning into breaks. The building might topple if we are not careful. And then what?

The solution is simple the implementation is the problem. We need to work on our aqeedah as an ummah. We need to strengthen ourselves….only then can we fight the enemy. And only then can we envision victory.
InshaAllah kheyr!

So true and so sad, we're on the verge of either a third world war or a new form of cold war.

I was thinking about Israel's offer yesterday aswell, they said they were going to release prisoners and give money. It seems as though they're playing gods, but so far no prisoner is seen.

Regarding somalia, we can only pray for a less destructive outcome than predicted. Destructive it will be.

Inshallah kheyr, inshallah victory!

Indeed walahi NM,

I am happy that someone wrote exactly what was in my mind.Somalis need to sit down and form a serious gavaa otherwise they will cease to exist on international forums participated by various countries..

The Islamic courts brought a lot of peace in that region and should surely be brought to the discussions...I think Somalis need to mix Islam in their real life, be it political, social and economic environments..

The TNG can't make a move without the aspiration of the 99.9% Somali muslims being catered for..The vacuum Islamic union courts have left to be filled....
