6 Comments Keepin’ It One Hunned – Thoughts on Conversion to Sunni Islam

    Nation of Islam is an insult to the real Islam. Why don’t more Muslims speak out against it? Those that are members are immersed in shirk, yet the leaders carry on on the same path that they’ve been on now for decades, misguiding people to move forward their agenda.

    Bismillah

    Peace, while it is hard to understand a lot in the NOI (& its done that way purposely – initially The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad referred to Master Fard Muhammad as “Prophet”, then “God” then “Mahdi”… & none of the “scholars” track this… wonder why & which one is correct? ??). If studied with the perversity – you’ll only get what you want. Its akin to the hadith where Allah swt says to Muhammad pbuh “I am to in the opinion of My servant”. So whatever you look for… Yea

    Anywho, Sunni Islam is beautiful, it has its slip ups on the social front and I could say where every “group” has its slips (doesn’t The Qur’an prohibit sectarianism?). But what good will that do? We one Ummah. It’d be best that we reconciled our differences & came together for the sake of Allah swt.

    In short, the NOI are a “Mahdi” type people. It doesn’t negate the rest of The Ummah. Our teachings tell us all Originals are born Muslim (fitra right? Riiight). Furthermore, on the Mahdi thing – NOI are like the Mouride of West Africa or Ahmadiyya of Lahore or Chabad in Judaism and for whatever reason, these people’s dawah is strong. For whatever reason…

    So a man, came, or so the history tells us – from the east. With a “strange” teaching. (Blessesd are the strangers). Telling us of our people in the East (kinda like S. Diouf &many others did), telling us we was the Original people of the earth (kinda like science/biology tells us now – but let the white man tell u so you know it s real), telling us who opposes us – & I surely don’t have to go into great detail with that – they write their own history and quite well might I add. But if you aren’t a fan of history, Qur’an say:

    Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 118:

    يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا بِطَانَةً مِّن دُونِكُمْ لَا يَأْلُونَكُمْ خَبَالًا وَدُّوا مَا عَنِتُّمْ قَدْ بَدَتِ الْبَغْضَاءُ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَمَا تُخْفِي صُدُورُهُمْ أَكْبَرُ قَدْ بَيَّنَّا لَكُمُ الْآيَاتِ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْقِلُونَ

    O you who believe! do not take for intimate friends from among others than your own people; they do not fall short of inflicting loss upon you; they love what distresses you; vehement hatred has already appeared from out of their mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater still; indeed, We have made the communications clear to you, if you will understand.

    And many of us became Muslim, some of us stayed in NOI, some became Sunni, Sufi, Shia, Ahmadiyya etc. All by the will of Allah swt. But what I’m saying is many us that can say Asalaam alaykum freely now is because of the hard work of those people many call “kafirs” but man, maybe you find yourselves to be our moral superiors… if this pea sized brain I have knows nothing – it knows Allah swt hates ingratitude.

    Id love to have a proper dialog on said issue because I love my brothers in the Ummah. Every single one of em.

    Peace.
