Islam is a Deen of Ilm.
That means Islam is a Deen of knowledge, and science, and education, and scholarship, and research, and inquiry.
And Islam is a Deen of Fikr.
That means Islam is a Deen of thinking, and reflection, and analysis, and understanding.
Muslims have largely ritualized Islam. And they have taken all life and functionality and effectiveness from some of the most powerful tools of Islamic education, motivation and regeneration such as Jum'ah Khutbah that God Almighty gave them.
As a result, many if not most Jum'ah Khutbahs are stillborn.
Most Jum'ah Khutbahs are ineffective at best and dysfunctional and narcotizing at some of their worst.
Is it any surprise then that the Muslim Nation -- the global and divinely constituted Muslim Ummah -- is in the kind of disarray that it is?
