HOW MYOPIC AND SELF-CENTERED CAN WE GET [Quote 471]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


Don’t be surprised by what I am about to say now.

When you look around, when you travel, when you try and contact people, when you make all kinds of efforts, and get in touch with those who you think are people in positions of leadership of some kind or level among Muslims, this is the sad and heartbreaking reality you are likely to encounter:

They don’t seem to care who you are or what you do. They seem to be so caught up in who they are and what they are doing, they seem to have no time to spare for you.

Nor do they seem to have a shred of attention they could bestow upon you.

Part of this is simple human deviance and limitation. Human egos grown too fat and native human intelligence and sensitivity gone dull, dumb and deaf.

Or merely myopic self-interest taken to an extreme.

But, at the same time, make a note of this, part of it also is by design. It is a part of deep deliberation and careful planning in quarters that seem to wish to control the world and shape human destiny.

That means, certain people have been trained and groomed to act a certain way and then they have been foisted in positions of leadership among Muslims.

The basic idea is to keep Muslims spinning in a series of never-ending circles and to keep the Muslim Ummah from regenerating itself and going forward.

While other parts of the world are not exempt, nowhere is this diseased phenomenon more manifest than what Muslims generally refer to as the West.
