There are several manifestations of division among the Muslims, and they are actions and behaviors that contribute to these divisions.
And probably one of the most profound and poisonous is the issue of a severe and komiya.
A severe it means nationalism, and komiya tribalism, Muslims, waving their flags, Muslims being proud of where they come from. Muslims always saying putting your name putting a country putting some kinds of ethnicity before Islam saying I am American Muslim. I am a Pakistani Muslim. I am an Australian Muslim. I am an Iraqi Muslim. I am a Saudi Muslim. I am a Lebanese Muslim. I am a Nigerian Muslim. No, we should never ever, ever put anything before Islam. You can say I'm a Muslim, from Nigeria. I'm a Muslim from America. I'm a Muslim from Lebanon. Why? Because where you from really doesn't matter. What matters is that we are Muslims.
Tamia tribalism, even Muslims from the same country, Muslims who are from the same ethnicity. When they come in, they live in a place they settle according to tribe,
tribe that lives in the east, the tribe that lives in the West, the tribe from the north, the tribe from the south, the tribe that eats this the tribe that has this culture, tribes that had historical conflicts among themselves, they continue those conflicts even when they move to another place. So this is called a phobia and kalmia
it is something that Muslims do, innocently. By habit. Even when they enter the mosque, you will find Muslims look for somebody who looks like them.
A Muslim not to sit by somebody who talks like them. A Muslim only invite somebody to their house, who is from their place. A Muslim seems to seek loyalty and support and to live next to someone who eats his food and dresses like him and talks his ledger, his dialect. This is signs of ignorance. This is signs of defeat. This is signs of weakness. This is signs of disease. This is signs of Jackie Leo.
But we have been told,
we have been told by our conquerors. We have been told by those people who have sponsored us. We have been told by those people who have entered our homes, our hearts and our lands, we have been told by those people that this is good for us. This is the way that we can be identified. This is the way we can be distinguished and we believe them because they give us something for it.
this ignorance as vn komiya is the ignorance and poison, which is one of the main ingredients of division and pollution among the Muslims today. If we don't stop it, if we don't speak about it, then we are contributing to our own death. And we are contributing to the erosion and the stagnation of Islam.
It is the element that the non Muslim conspirators, they use it to separate us they use it to divide us they use it to undermine the countries they use. They use it to undermine our communities. They use it to undermine the individuals among the Muslims.
We have been given special names by the kuffaar we have been given special flags by the kuffaar we have been given distinct countries by the kuffaar with independent constitutions and governments by the kuffaar and that is how we see each other.
There was a time
when no matter where Muslim lived.
They knew there was one halifa
they knew there was one authority.
They knew there was one among
and there was no need for any flag.
The flag of the Muslims is La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah
it doesn't have any emblems.
It doesn't have any special letters.
It is not for any special people. It is a global oma
is chosen by loss of Panama tada

and every other characteristic that it has is underneath it. It is beneath it. It is subordinate to it.
