Exposing Muslims whom pontificate/promote Islāmophobia via al-`Asabiyyah/Xenophobia

Standard

20200610_103750

You don’t have to be European to be a White-Supremacist. Just like you don’t have to be Non-Muslim to be an Islāmophobe. Persons like Assim Al-Hakeem: “Religio-Scholar” Native of the Arab-World via KSA/Saudi Arabia thus undoubtedly prove this: he happens to be both a Xenophobe & an Islāmophobe. Ironically, Persons like him are actually no different than Persons like Said Rageah.(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2019/11/14/muslim-hatemonger)

Much like how `Amr ibn-Hishām was nicknamed Abū-Hakm/Father-Of-Judgment/Wisdom, whom was renicknamed Abū-Jahl/Father-Of-Ignorance/Stupidity via Muhammad (Peace be upon him): it’s ironic that the Last-Name of the Person whom is in this Post is al-Hakīm/Wise-Person, when in fact it should be al-Jahīl/Apathetic-Asshole. Islāmophobia & White-Supremacy are both Manifestations of azh-Zhulm/Oppression. And whomever co-signs or is Silent concerning either is a Zhālim/Oppressor, by definition. Being Pro-`Asabiyyah/Xenophobia is Islāmophobia, by definition, because the 1st-Being/Created-Thing to be Pro-`Asabiyyah was ash-Shaytān/Satan. And ash-Shaytān is the Ultimate-Islāmophobe.(at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Kathīr)

One may Dare ask how/why do I pontificate/claim such a Stance against Assim Al-Hakeem. I’ll answer that. Firstly though, I’ll thoroughly detail the “Black Lives Matter” Concept vs. the “All Lives Matter” Kalām/Rhetoric.

 

“Black-Lives Matter”, is as valid as “All-Lives Matter”, because #Allah (the Creator/Lord of the Universe) created All-Life/Lives. However, at the Same-Time: if “Black-Lives” don’t matter to those whom benefit from al-`Asabiyyah/Xenophobia via White-Supremacy/White-Privilege, then saying “All-Lives Matter” is Deflectory-Rhetoric. It summarily means that they know that “Black-Lives” don’t matter via White-Supremacy & don’t care that “Black-Lives” don’t matter.(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2018/02/04/bilalmoviereinforcesslavenarrative)

This, of course, is because they’re able to hide under the Filthy-Cover of White-Supremacy, via either: being European, passing for “White” (Russians/Central-Asians, Euro-Latinos, Middle-Eastern Peoples, Mixed-Ethnicity Peoples/”Bi-Racial”, etc.). Also, there’s Good-Ole Coonery via Persons whom’re classified as “Black”, via the Socio-Caste System which the Western-World operates by, based exclusively upon al-`Asabiyyah (via Classism, Ethnocentrism, Colorism, etc.). They attempt to convince People that White-Supremacy isn’t Reality. They also contribute to Self-Hate & Self-Destruction of their own People.

Furthermore, you don’t have to be Afro-American to be a Coon-If you’re Non Afro-American & you co-sign Anti-Blackness, via your Silence and/or your Biases, then by definition you’re a Coon. Oh, by the way: Muslims whom don’t/refuse to stand against White-Supremacy, then by definition, not only are they Muslim-Coons, but most importantly/worse yet, they’re Islāmophobes Assim Al-Hakeem & those like him are most definitely Muslim-Coons. Silence and/or Participation as per al-`Asabiyyah is Islāmophobia by definition. Muslims are Mafrūdh/Islāmically-Mandated to stand against any/all Manifestations of azh-Zhulm/Oppression: Spiritually, Psycho-Emotionally, Primally.(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2019/09/23/toxicleadership)

Of course, Persons like Assim Al-Hakeem have, on Numerous-Occasions, spoken against any Forms/Manifestations of al-Jihād (Struggle/Resistance) against Oppressive-Governance/Governments. And, this is because Persons like them are pressured, via their Oppressive-Governments, to command People to be Anti-Dissent. Ironically, Dissent was literally used via Muslims of the Middle-East/Arab-World via the Geo-Political Ancestors of this Region aiding Non-Muslim/Western Powers topple al-Khilāfah/Islāmic-Governance: the Ottoman-Empire during World-War I.(https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2013/12/06/hujjahagainstsaudiarabia)

Standing against azh-Zhulm is something Allah takes so seriously, that He decided to make azh-Zhulm Mahrūm/Islāmically-Prohibited even upon Himself. And, if/whenever there’s Muslims being Silent/Complicit regarding any Manifestation of Oppression, then this is Islāmophobia, by definition…you don’t have to be Non-Muslim to be an Islāmophobe. In fact, ironically: Muhammad (Peace be upon him stated taught us that al-`Asabiyyah is something which his Ummah/Nation will never abandon.(Muslim, an-Nawawī)

China’s Silk-Road of Blood

Standard

img_20191128_151546_337

This is exactly why the Chinese-Government is oppressing the Uyghur-People, whom’re mostly Muslims, in XinJiang/East Turmenistan. China wants to extend its Global-Reach enomically “By Hook or by Crook”. And, Northwestern-China is literally in the Middle of the Historical Silk-Road. Because of this being the most important Juncture-Point of the Silk-Road, China is willing to bring Destruction to anyone/anything within its Path of Financial-Dominance within the World. This is coupled with the Fact that China is competing to surpass the Western-World economically. All of the Atrocities mentioned about the Chinese “Reeducation-Camps”, the Forced-Relationships governmentally imposed between Non-Muslim/Han Chinese-Men & Muslim/Uyghur-Women are 💯%-True. However, there’s still Muslim-Governments whom still allign themselves with China. And, as Voltaire once stated, “When it come to Wealth everyone is of the Same-Religion.”. I tell People all the Time, “You don’t have to be a Non-Muslim to be an Islāmophobe.”. And, the Fact that Muslim-Governments support China, in spite of these Atrocities against Fellow-Muslims thus proves this undoubtedly.

The Islāmic-Justification to rebel against Toxic-Leadership

Standard

Author’s-Note:

Historically (even prior to the Revelation of The Qur’ān), and especially contemporaneously (via the Collapse of the Ottoman-Empire), there’s frequently been this Kalām/Rhetoric amongst Elitists to retain/preserve their Powers of Populaces. With this being said, Muslim-Elites are clearly no different from our Non-Muslim Counterparts. However, unlike Non-Muslins: Muslims Past&Present, Pre-Qur’ān & Post-Qur’ān, etc. have continuously attempted to misuse at-Tanzīl/Revelation, Muslim Religio-Scholars, Islāmic-Concepts (like Waliyy-ul-Amr/Loyalty of Authority pertaining to Muslim-Leaders/Rulers) & so on to attempt to justify their Oppression against Others. And, it’s done in such Ways exclusively to preserve their Self-Serving Authoritarian-Control. Fortunately, for us though, in spite of their Oppressive-Tactics to attempt to convince Populaces that regardless of their Oporession that they’re entitled to receiving Respect, Loyalty, Obedience, etc. there exists Revelation to debunk any, every, all Things which Oppressive-Leaders/Rulers stand for. The following applies to any/all Manifestations, Forms, Degrees of al-Imārah (Leadership/Rulership) by the way.

یَـٰۤأَیُّهَا ٱلَّذِینَ ءَامَنُوۤا۟ أَطِیعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَطِیعُوا۟ ٱلرَّسُولَ وَأُو۟لِی  ٱلۡأَمۡرِ مِنكُمۡۖ فَإِن تَنَـٰزَعۡتُمۡ فِی شَیۡءࣲ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ وَٱلرَّسُولِ إِن كُنتُمۡ تُؤۡمِنُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلۡیَوۡمِ ٱلۡـَٔاخِرِۚ ذَ ٰ⁠لِكَ خَیۡرࣱ وَأَحۡسَنُ تَأۡوِیلًا

“Those whom believe pay attention: obey Allah & the Messenger, as well as the Possessors of Authority amongst you. If you differ, concerning anything, then refer to Allah & the Messenger, providing you believe in Allah & the Last-Day. That’s best & a most excellent Conclusion.”(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.4, V.59)

وَٱقۡتُلُوهُمۡ حَیۡثُ ثَقِفۡتُمُوهُمۡ وَأَخۡرِجُوهُم مِّنۡ حَیۡثُ أَخۡرَجُوكُمۡۚ وَٱلۡفِتۡنَةُ أَشَدُّ مِنَ ٱلۡقَتۡلِۚ وَلَا تُقَـٰتِلُوهُمۡ عِندَ ٱلۡمَسۡجِدِ ٱلۡحَرَامِ حَتَّىٰ یُقَـٰتِلُوكُمۡ فِیهِۖ فَإِن قَـٰتَلُوكُمۡ فَٱقۡتُلُوهُمۡۗ كَذَ ٰ⁠لِكَ جَزَاۤءُ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرِینَ

“And combat them wherever you find them & expel them wherever they expelled you. And, Drama/Oppression is worse than Killing/Slaughter. But, don’t combat them within the Sacred-Mosque, unless you’re combated within it. So, combat them, if they combat you. Such is the Retribution of the Disbelievers.”(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.2, V.191)

`Abdullah ibn-`Uthmān ibn-`Āmir/Abū-Bakr as-Siddīq (May Allah be pleased with him), after the Death of Muhammad (Peace be upon him), assumed al-Imārah over the Muslims. Upon that, he publicly stated, “I have been granted Authority over you, in spite of not being the Best from amongst you. If I do well, then help me. But, if I error, then correct me. Empathy for Truth is Loyalty, whereas Apathy for Truth is Treachery. The Weak amongst you shall be Strong to/with me, unless/until I have secured/restored his Rights, if Allah wills. And the Strong amongst you shall be Weak to/with me, unless/until I’ve seized from him the Rights of Others, if Allah wills. So, obey me, so long as I obey Allah & His Messenger. But, if I disobey Allah & His Messenger, then you owe me no Obedience. Arise for your prayer: may Allah mercify you.”.(az-Zuhrī, ibn-Ishāq, ibn-Hishām, at-Tabarī, at-Tabarānī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Sa`d, al-Wāqidī, ibn-Kathīr, Martin Lings)

Now, please, keep in Mind that Abū-Bakr is Unanimously-Recognized amongst the Scholars of the Sunnah/Prophetic-Tradition as being the Best/Number-1 Companion of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) & the Most-Senior amongst all of his Companion-Peers (May Allah be pleased with them altogether)…this is what he stated concerning about his own Self, his own Imārah over the Muslims. So, upon that, whom’re we to posture as though we’re somehow Entitled to Imārah and/or Entitled to oppress via our Imārah without Consequence?!!! So, just know: it honestly really doesn’t matter which Muslim-Leader/Ruler, Muslim Religio-Scholar, egc. attempts to make you think/feel that you must obey them regardless of how they are. This “Be Patient with/Obedient to the Muslim-Leader/Ruler” Rhetoric only emboldens Oppressors to remain Oppressors. Basically, this Rhetoric spewed by Oppressors is like imposing Stockholm-Syndrome upon People: when the Oppressed begin to not only tolerate/accept Oppression, but also defend the Oppressor. And, that’s exactly what’s been happening within the Muslim-World for a Long-Time. Ironically, these Same-Oppressors command their Muslim Religio-Scholars to spew this Stockholm-Syndrome to their Populaces/Citizenry, merely because they don’t want what their Geo-Political Ancestors did to occur to them: pertaining to al-Kharajiyyah/Rebellion against the Ottoman-Empire for example, when the Muslim-Arabs assisted Non-Muslim Powers to fight against Fellow-Muslims, in the Name of al-`Asabiyyah/Xenophobia.(See: https://garethbryant.wordpress.com/2013/12/06/hujjahagainstsaudiarabia)

As per my Conclusion: don’t ever let anyone tell you to not, that you shouldn’t/can’t, that it’s Sinful to rebel against Oppression.

The Usage of the Homosexual-Agenda against Muslims

Standard

20190712_013316

Author’s-Note:

This is based on a Pro-Homo Article, attempting to pontificate/promote a Pseudo-Narrative, claiming that al-Lawāt/Homosexuality is from al-Islām. This Pseudo-Narrative is the Argument used within this Article:

The secret gay history of Islam

There’s Several-Things incredibly wrong with this Article-Even the very Title of the Article itself is purposely Religio-Untrue/Dishonest:

1. al-Islām predates the World’s 1st-Homosexuals: the People of Lot. Moreover, there were 4-Reasons as per how/why the People of Lot were Destroyed:

a. They committed ash-Shirk/Association (Ascription of Sifāt [Characteristics/Qualities] attributed to Allah not predicated upon at-Tanzīl/Revelation]) via Paganism.(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.18, V.1-6; at-Tabarī; as-Suyūtī; ibn-Kathīr) via Idol-Worship.

b. They were the 1st-Humans to initiate al-Lawāt/Homosexuality. Moreover, via at-Tanzīl/Revelation: it’s clearly detailed that the Men amongst the People of Lot chose to have Consenual Homesxual-Intercourse with one another. And, Allah states Directly that the Men from the People of Lot chose/prefered Men instead of Women. So, for those whom claim that Homosexuality only existed amongst the People of Lot via Rape: those Persons are clearly Pathologically-Ignorant, as per Revelatory/Islāmic-Texts. Them & People like them are methodically & deliberately Textually-Untrue/Dishonest.(at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Kathīr)

c. They were the 1st-Humans to commit Gang-Rape.(at-Tabarī, ibn-Kathīr)

d. They were the 1st-Humans to commit Highway-Robbery/Human-Trafficking.(at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī, ibn-Kathīr)

2. There’s no such Thing as “Gay History of Islam”. There’s a History of Muslims (relative to the Revelation of The Qur’ān) whom were/are in fact Homosexuals.

3. This is literally nothing more than a Pathetic-Attempt to justify al-Fusūq/Sinning, as Muhammad (Peace be upon him) stated, “Verily, the Action/Behavior of the People of Lot is what I fear for my Nation mostly.”.
(al-Kabā’ir/The Major-Sins, adh-Dhahabī)

4. There’s detailed Hudūd/Islāmic-Punishments for al-Lawāt:

a. Male-Male Sexual-Intercourse is automatically Punishable via Death-Penalty, unless it’s Proven that the Dominated-Person was/is a Victim of Rape, Child-Molestation, etc.

b. Female-Female Sexual-Intercourse is Punishable based upon Marital/Non-Marital Status, unless it’s Proven that the Dominated-Person was/is a Victim of Rape, Child-Molestation, etc.

(al-Kabā’ir)

This Article is simply at-Tahrīf (Distortion/Deception), attempting to normalize al-Lawāt to Muslims, and sadly: Muslims whom’re Religio-Ignorant, Ego/Desire-Driven, etc. fold under the Pro-Homo Pressure. This is one of the Prophecies of Muhammad (Peace be upon him), when he warned us that his Nation is secure/safe from the Wrath of Allah, unless/until they become al-Mujāhirīn/Shameless. When the Companions present (May Allah be pleased with them) asked him whom al-Mujāhirūn are, he stated that they are those whom sin without: Reservation, Consequence, etc.(al-Bukhārī) Clearly, this is Article is 💯% Agenda-Driven, to pontificate, proliferate Sinning. The Fact that there’s such a Desperate-Agenda to seduce Muslims, to turn them out towards al-Lawāt, thus proves how much Insecurity the Proponents of al-Lawāt are actually operating with/from.

Articles, Writings, Postures, etc. (such as these Kinds/Types of Articles) affirm/confirm that this is how/why Muslims must (at All-Times) be Religio-Knowledgeable, pertaining to what al-Islām allows/prohibits & how/why the Enemies of al-Islām work Nite&Day to attempt to lead Muslims astray.

Never Too Late To Grow: 30-Tools Of Empowerment Gareth Bryant & LaTisha Bradford

Standard

img_20190216_190431_166

This is my 1st-Book. Myself, along with my Co-Author, LaTisha Bradford-We’ve published this to provide Readers with something pragmatic: to look within themselves introspectively, objectively: reflecting upon their Lives. I’m personally very excited concerning this Publication. I’ve been writing for a Long-Time. However, I never really expected that I’d be at this Literary-Level, authoring Literature/Books. This is truly a Watershed-Moment for me personally, because it stands as a Magnanimous-Accomplishment within my Life. To be an Author is such a Monumental-Feat. Most People don’t get to be Authors. So, this is something for me an Accomplishment/Achievement, the Ability to share something with the World which is real, tangible, and has the Potential/Capability to improve the Lives of anyone who chooses to read my Book. Our Purpose for even writing this Book is because both my Co-Author & I saw as well as felt the Neccessity to highlight Life-Experience as a Stepping-Stone towards Progression, Evolution, Improvement, etc. So that any Person reading this Book can potentially reflect upon their own Lives & draw from our Book ways to look at themselves as those whom still possess the Capabilities&Abilities to grow, regardless to what Space/Place, Age, Career, Situation which they’re currently within. The Book itself is exclusively meant to provide Hope, along with Practical-Tools to improve one’s Self, at one’s on Pace, at one’s own Time, without Judgmentalism, Criticism, Ridicule, etc. And, I’m confident that we’ve been able to accomplish this as such.

The Bilāl Movie: Why it still reinforces the Slave-Narrative of Black-People.

Standard

20180204_095229
The Bilāl Movie is actually a Sucka-Emcee Production: Bilāl ibn-Rabāh (May Allah be pleased with him) actually was Arab via his Father Rabāh, from Banī-Jumah, one of the Families of Quraysh, making Bilāl Tribally-Related to Muhammad (Peace be upon him).(The Sealed-Nectar) The mere fact that Rabāh is neither casted, mentioned, nor even referenced directly/by Name within the Film truly says a lot, as per the Agenda of the Producers of this Film: to do exactly what the Pagan Arabs did to Bilāl, which was to deny him his Arabness & replace it with Blackness. I’ll speak more on this-The Reason why Blackness was imposed upon Bilāl is because as a Slave (prior to his Liberation) he had 0-Rights, not even the Right to lay claim to his own Paternal Arab-Genealogy. This, of course, was due to the fact that the Arabs possessed immense disdain for Abyssinia/Ancient-Ethiopia & its People, resulting from the generational Military-Conflicts between them, based upon religio-political & socio-economic dominance in the region, which of course was imposed upon Bilāl, by virtue of him having an Abyssinian-Mother.

The Political-Discord between the Arabs & Abyssinians occured as a result of the Abyssinians of Yemen, then a Colony of Abyssinia, wanting to divert Commerce from al-Makkah to Yemen via making a Church named al-Qullays: a Mock-Ka`​bah, to draw Pilgrims to make al-Hajj/Pilgrimage in Yemen as opposed to al-Makkah. Once the Quraysh learned of this, a Man went to Yemen and desecrated this Church, infuriating the People of Yemen, thereby inciting War…this became known as the War of the Elephant. After the War/Year of the Elephant, which an Abyssinian-Army with an Elephant-Cavalry failed to invade/conquer al-Makkah and were defeated (resulting from Allah casting upon them Flocks of Birds dropping Sijjīl/Firery-Stones [Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.105; at-Tabarī; as-Suyūtī]), in retaliation, the Arabs of al-Makkah: the Quraysh & their many Allies in turn invaded Yemen. When this happened, countless Abyssinians were captured by the Arabs, including the Mother of Bilāl, Hammāmah, of Abyssinian-Royalty, and Human-Trafficked to al-Makkah-These People became Slaves.(ibn-Ishāq, at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī) And, this is actually why Bilāl ibn-Rabāh was referred to in a disrespectful way, by Abī-Dharr al-Ghifārī (May Allah be pleased with him)…by the way: the Narration never textually states that he called Bilāl “Son of a Black-Woman”…that was a Commentative Add-On, as is commonly told concerning this Story. This is exclusively based upon Scholastic-Conjecture on part of al-Bukhārī, which this Add-On exists within his Hadīth-Collection of Sahīh-il-Bukhārī.(Fath-ul-Bārī, ibn-Hajr) Ironically, even Abā-Dharr al-Ghifārī is described as being a “Black-Man”, relative to his Dark-Skin.(ibn-Ishāq, at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī, Muslim, ibn-Sa`d, adh-Dhahabī, http://www.alajamwalarab.com)

This Film also (subliminally) simply is a Muslim-Version of 12-Years A Slave: it reinforces Subserviance, Destitution, Acceptance of Slave-Culture, etc. Why is it that Bilāl is the only “Black-Companion” highlighted/depicted in Film, Narrative, etc. as “the Slave/Ex-Slave”?!!! Why is it that none of Bilāl’s Military/Statesmanhood Accomplishments are ever highlighted/detailed in Film/Narrative?!!! For example: did you know that Bilāl participated in all the known Major-Battles during the Lifetime of Muhammad (Peace be upon him); did you know that Bilāl was the 1st Minister of Bayt-il-Māl/Secretary of the Islāmic-Treasury: the Chief-Administrator responsible for the collection of az-Zakāh/Taxation & distribution of as-Sadaqah/Philanthropy?!!!(Battles Of The Prophet, Lives Of The Companions, at-Tabarī, as-Suyūtī)

20180204_095150
The only Reason why Bilāl is still inaccurately portrayed as being “Black” is because he was once a Slave. Had he always been Free, no one would’ve ever attributed “Blackness” to Bilāl. Let’s actually take a look at what the Skin-Complexion of Bilāl actually was. According to Ahādīth/Narrations, recorded in various Collections: Bilāl really wasn’t any “Darker/Blacker” than any other Muslim/Non Muslim Arabs of his Lifetime, as per Skin-Complexion. In fact, it was common-place for Arabs to boast & laude their Dark-Complexions & ridicule the Complexions of Non-Arabs described as al-Humrah (Reddish-White), as well as al-Asfar (Yellowish-White).(Lisān-ul`Arab: Lexicon of the Arabic-Language, ibn-Manzhūr) There also various Other-Colors which the Arabs would use to describe one another as per DarkSkin, like al-Akhdhar/Green…do you have any Idea how Dark someone’s Skin-Complexion has to be in order to be called “Green”?!!! I’ve literally seen People so Dark that they have a Green-Tint to their Skin-Complexions. However, ironically, almost every single portrayal of him in Literature, Film, etc. depicts him as “Shaka Zulu Black” and/or the Darkest-Person around. Like, in the Film “The Message” for example…the Producers of this Film (in both the Hollywood & Arab Versions) purposely casted the Darkest/Blackest Human-Being they could find to portray Bilāl on Screen…the Question is why?!!! Simple, to continue the Pseudo-Narrative of equating Blackness to Slavery & Servitude. Even in the Hollywood version of “The Message”, Bilāl is emphatically called “Black-Bilāl”…Word4Word…that alone should tell you something.

20180204_113740
The Pseudo-Narrative of Bilāl is directly paralleled with the Pseudo-Narrative of Sally Hemings: the only Reasons why either of them are ethno-historically falsely-portrayed as being “Black” is because they were both Born-Slaves & both their Mothers were Black (Hammāmah, Betty Hemings: even Betty Hemings herself had a European-Father but cause she was a Slave she was considered “Black”). The Father, Paternal-Grandfather, Paternal Great-Grandfather of Sally Hemings were all White-Men/Slave-Owners. Her Slave-Owner, Thomas Jefferson (who essentially used her as a Sex-Slave) was actually her Brother-In-Law (Jefferson’s Wife, Martha Wayles & Sally Hemings had the same Father: John Wayles).(at-Tabarī; Hayāt-us-Sahābah; Virginia House of Burgesses: British Coastal Colonial Law of Slavery, 1660)

Muslim Matters actually published a Review of the Movie.(https://muslimmatters.org/2018/02/03/5-things-to-know-about-the-movie-before-watching-it-review-of-bilal-a-new-breed-of-hero/) Their Film-Commentary of Bilāl not only reinforces my Point, as per the continuation of a Pseudo-Narrrative, predicated upon al-`Asabiyyah/Xenophobia, but also the Major-Themes of Islām aren’t even highlighted. Once again, the important Narrative of Bilāl has been shamefully compromised, at the expense of wanting to capitalize on “Blackness” being at the forefront of World/US Politics via Libya, Police-Brutality, Racial-Profiling, Human-Trafficking, etc.

Why Are Muslims Of The Americas Still Not Included As Part Of The “Muslim-World”?!!!

Author’s-Note:

Dhul-Hijjah 25th&26th, 1438, A.H./September 16th&17th, 2017, C.E. I attended a “Cultural-Rapprochement” Conference sponsored by the Muslim World League in New York City, with Muslim-Leaders, Muslim, Scholars, etc. from various Parts of our Planet: this is my Story.

While not ignoring the significance/importance of this Summit-As I listened to the Lectures, Presenations, and so on: there was something, someone especially missing: me…Muslims like me…Muslims who look like me, walk, talk, eat, dance, joke act just like me. Muslims of African-American, Latino-American, European-American descent…we’re not at all represented, as though we don’t even exist as valued Members of the Muslim-World. I want & need to know why, just as we all do. I’ve met, reconnected to Muslims who don’t even speak the same Language as I do…those whom probably never lived in the Western-Hemisphere. I stuck-out like a “Sore-Thumb”, as they say. There was a deep, dark, sense of Isolation, Loneliness, Unwantedness, Dismissal, Indifference, Disrespect, that there’s a “Muslim-World” Conference, Summit, whatever you wish to call it, where a Western-Hemispheric Nation has hosted, yet no Muslims Native/Indigenous to this Part of the World are represented there-It’s utterly disgusting to know that Muslim-Americans weren’t even invited, reached-out to even attend this Event. To keep it Tall wit U: I just crashed it cause I found-out about it on da Humble.

Where’s the Presence of Muslim-America at such a relevant Conference, which claims to focus on “Cultural-Rapprochement”?!!! How can Cultural-Rapprochement even be accomplished when there’s Muslim-Demographics in the Western-Hemisphere not even considered Members of the Muslim-World?!!! Why is the Western-World/the Americas not included/accepted as Parts of the Greater Muslim-World?!!! Why is it that the Muslim-World is only classified as Nations which make-up the Arab-World, Africa, Asia, where the Arabic-Language is common/dominant?!!!

It’s necessary for all Muslims to give intelligent, credible answers to these Questions which I’ve asked in this Article, including the very Question which is the actual Title of the Article itself.
