Many of these people, who don exaggerated Islamic garb, affect super-piety in public, and frequently carry paper credentials of Islamic knowledge and scholarship, are in the pay of the same false Kings, Tyrants and Dictators who have imprisoned you, and who themselves are owned and controlled by the former Colonial Masters.

The present-day Egypt is only one glaring example of all of this.

Let Hajj Be a Liberator

You have seen many a turning point in your young life, Muslims. But, despite your 1400 years of history on this earth, in terms of historical time, you are still young.

So, let Hajj 1436/2015 be a new turning point in your life. So, start over.

Sabaq Phir Padh,” says the bard Iqbal, may God bless him, meaning: “Relearn the Old Lesson!”

So, wake up, Muslims, and relearn your old lesson of human equality all over again. And let this Hajj 1436 be your Liberator.

A Young Nation

You are still a young nation, Muslims. In many ways, you are still in the prime of your life.

Christians beat you by at least 500 years. And the Jews are older than you by a millennium or two. The Hindus, the Buddhists and Zoroastrians maybe are all even older.

Countless other Ummats came and went before you as God had ordained them to. Some we know about; some we don’t even suspect were around.

So, you have faced the vicissitudes of your young life with fortitude and courage, Muslims. And come out victors in your countless collective battles with Shaitan and his hordes.

Reset Your Clock!

It is time for you now Muslims, this glorious Hajj of 1436/2015, to reset your clock.

And it is time for you to rededicate yourselves to the mandate that you were commissioned to carry out in this world: to erase from the world such common scourges of humanity as racism and regional and national discrimination and prejudice.

On this day of Eidul Adha 1436/2015, you must relearn the lesson of human equality and respect for universal human dignity that used to be your forte not so very long ago.

One Great Big Revolution

What a revolution that was that you unleashed upon God’s earth, Muslims! All of fourteen hundred years ago!

Way before so many other great revolutions happened in the world. Revolutions like the American Revolution in 1776; the French Revolution in 1789; and the Russian revolution in 1917. These were all revolutions that profoundly changed the world.

But before them all, and much more profound, complete and powerful than them all, was the Islamic Revolution spearheaded by the Qur’an under the leadership of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam – in the 7th Century.

Your revolution came before all of these and was more profound and thoroughgoing than all of them put together. And yet it was more benign and beneficial to all; and more inclusive and tolerant of all; and more compassionate and gracious to all.

What a miracle this was! It is this miracle that the world awaits again, Muslims.

Gender Parity: A Most Thorough-Going Revolution of All

This was a revolution that was as cultural as it was social and political, even though it carried many of the hallmarks of what people would call a “religious” or even spiritual revolution.

And what was that revolution about? It was about totally rearranging the male-female human dynamic to make it one of near-perfect equality, reciprocity and symmetry.

And that revolution was unfurled by mentioning women in the same breath as men. And doing so to declare that:

“Women have rights over you the same way you have rights over them!”

Or as the Qur’an put it:

Wa Lahunna Mithlul-ladhee Alaihinna.

No one had ever heard anything like that before – or for nearly a millennium and a half thereafter.

Make Hajj 1436 a Turning Point

Therefore, this Hajj, will Muslims re-learn the old lesson of human equality? And make it a turning point in their life – and in the life of Islam and Muslims?

That is my message to Muslims for this Eidul Adha 1436/2015.

For, nothing may be more important in the world today than this.
