United States of America Muslim Al Hajj Mahdi Leroy J. Thorpe, Jr. Message To Muslims Worldwide: Stop Killing Innocent People And Return To Islam And The Sunnah Of Prophet Muhammad (PBBUH)
Assalamou Alaikum Brothers and Sister’s In Islam:
I will be very direct. Muslims worldwide are suffering not because of the European or Western influence in Muslim country’s – we are suffering because we love the deceptive pleasures of this short lived world. Rich oiled Muslims countries can feed every poor and starving Muslim worldwide if they shared the wealth that Allah has given them in this world – they could educate every Muslim male and female to avoid poverty and ignorance and provide an avenue for employment, fair trade and non-interest loans to build technological businesses, housing, Masjids and Dawah Center’s.Muslims have become weak in the dunya because of their disobedience to Allah to place the Al-Quran in their heart’s and to practice the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (PBBUH).
The ignorance not to allow women to drive and be educated is primitive, criminal and anti-Islamic. A woman has the right to choose her husband and not have a pre-arranged husband for marriage - I challenge you via the Al-Quran and Sunnah to dispute me.
Allah revealed the three great religions of Judaism Christianity and lastly Al-Islam as a blessing to all mankind Islam via revelation he sent the angel Gabriel with the Torah Gospel and Al-Quran. Allah created different cultures to get to know one another inviting what is good and prohibiting that which is bad. The task of this world to perform dawah daily and to worship Allah with the hope of getting into heaven in the hereafter.
It is against Islam to kill innocent human beings woman and children and to destroy the environment. The senseless killings of foreign aid workers, journalists, and any other human being that is not occupying a Muslim land and causing war or oppression which is criminal and against the Sharia in Islam.
Allah describes the enemies of Islam and Muslims in the Quran; however, Muslims are not to destroy or threaten to kill, kill or bomb these enemies unless Muslims are attacked. Allah will judge all us on the day of judgement and we as Muslims should no our best daily to do dawah and workshop Allah peacefully without violence unless we are attacked.
