Yes today I would like to take a break from giving you scholarly excerpts and give you a few of my words.
In The Words of The Ghazzali BloggerI see tonight many Muslims very happy and chanting "Yes We Can." And it makes me angry! Eight years ago Muslims had the same stress filled election night hoping Bush would win because Gore had a Jewish Vice President. And when Bush was announced we all rejoiced. Now even with hindsight we do not see our mistake and we make the same mistake tonight. What is that mistake? We do not have Tawakal; Faith in Allah. Eight years ago we hoped Bush was to be president so that we would not be harmed, would have justice, and would not be persecuted against. Forgetting if Allah Willed us justice and safety, we would received them even if Gore was to pass away and Lieberman was to become President. But we did not have Tawakal and our own candidate passed one of the most injust laws ever to be passed in the modern world; the patriot act. Today we rejoice that McCain, who everyone says is the same person as Bush, did not win and that we brought a President of "Change." And again we forget change will not come unless Allah wills it. We should be humble and chant "No we cannot without Allah!!"
What each and everyone of you should do is say Alhamdulliah you recieved the candidate you wanted and pray that we gain justice and safety and that Allah (not Obama, not some democratic system, not the international hegemon) puts all our affairs into order for he is the best disposer of affairs. Hasbunallahu wa ni'mal-wakeel
