Nastaghfirullah May Allah forgive us, such a grieving news for the ummah!
Ust. Nouman Ali Khan had recently filed a lawsuit against sh. Omar Suleiman in Dallas Country Court for breaching the contract between them (The lawsuit contents in the online court website may have been removed under data protection law in Europe)
The ummah is greatly sadden by the news. Not because of the case itself, but particularly on how the ummah is reacting and nobody wants to miss even a slight chance to keep on adding salt to the wound.
It is truly a heart-breaking and hard-to-swallow read when recently a well-known and respected Islamic Facebook page slammed and insulted one of these two men (Does speaking ill of other Muslim make us a righteous one?) and getting sided with the other one. And vice versa from the other media. These acts will only cost nothing but division amongts us!
This case is so vulnerable to dispute and we kept on striving to dive into one’s personal life, as if that person had done something that’s greatly threatening to the Muslim world or community.
Shamefully yes we did, our concern have been astrayed from much trivial matters such as corrupted adolescence in our household and hometown, massive genocide, endless war, Islamophobic politicians and etc.
(Although the Shaytan will wisely keep pushing you in “I have the absolute right to know this and that as a public!” “He had done a shameful act, he shall not be shown any mercy or forgiven” and etc)
Be wary that Shaytan is the cleverest and the most devious creature in breaking Muslims apart. Just like what occured to our father and mother, Adam a.s and Hawa’ a.s. And Allah swt recorded the occasion for over and over again in the Holy Quran so that the wise can learn and be benefited from it.
But what say you? Why does he sue him for such a reason? I can’t believe he did what?
We have to quit it!
Never argue about something that we absolutely know nothing or little about, indeed we seek refuge from propelling ourselves into a grave fitna. No matter how many answers we have been told by anybody, in the end this is Allah’s swt matter and theirs’. Never invoke the wrath of Allah swt by falsely accusing someone for what might be his rights or vise versa.
We need to understand that Islam does allow a good discussion that would lead us to achieving problem solvings. But Islam strictly forbid on using foul words, slamming each other based on assumptions and having a pointless perpetual discussion. Thus in their case, it is best to let the authorities decide and solve their issues. As Muslim audiences and supporters, we have our dignity and guidelines on how to behave like one.
Instead, please and please do sincerely spend our valuable time sending prayers for both ust. Nouman Ali Khan and sh. Omar Suleiman. As it is widely known to all of us that these two great public speakers never exhausted in investing every piece of their energy and time to enlighten and guide us to the straight path of Allah’s deen. And bear in mind that as normal humans, they both have their own strengths and weaknesses.
For those who claimed that you do care about justice, do make efforts for 5 times a day, sincerely keep sending prayers to Allah swt along with your spouses and children :
“Whatever personal issues or stories they have between them, may Allah swt guide and soothe their hardship. And by Your Great Mercy, let everything be solved in the most just and fairest way. Insha Allah.”
The highlight of this article is to send out an emergency call to millions of Muslims around the world to strongly hold on to each other and quit being a judge against each other. Instead, warmly and patiently support each other to be a better Muslim. Truthfully, it would be a great joy and triumph for the Kafiruun and the enemy of Islam to see the Muslims breaking apart due to any conflicts.
Just like the Prophet Muhammad pbuh, be wise, understanding, forgiving and never have doubt in Allah swt, The All-Knowing and The Victory-Giver.
Pray that in The Judgement Day, we would not be held from entering Jannah because we owe someone an apology for speaking ill, slandering and spreading false news about them.
