Today Muslim does not know his or her religion, indeed severely exposed to American media cooks up a hodgepodge of Judea-Christian concepts of the contemporary Western retail media and (mostly) movies, grows its bread and puts a scarf on it and calls it Islam.
Today Muslim incessantly chatters half baked Arabic words he or she has no knowledge of, in every aspect of human life, daily life, and measure of Iman (Faith) is measured by the speedometer of the tongue: How fast blabbering nonsensical part-Arabic phrases.
First and foremost corrupter of the Islam of a man and a woman is his or her own words.
To incessantly utter Allah’s Grand Names as though personal gossip endeavors limitless foulness as opposed to piety.
If you enter a mosque, you notice the men in charge, no matter what you ask or say immediately respond with most profound Islamicalized blabber, usually centered around five to ten verses or Hadiths which they have no understanding of their Tafsir, their grammar nor lexicon.
Spectrum of this instant-blabber is wide ranging from Stem cell research to female hygiene. Knows no national boundaries Arab or Pakistani or Iranian, they just spew large amounts of most imaginative falsehood about Islam and the Prophet.
Our Sayyid The Prophet Peace be upon him said: The best of man’s Islam is his forsaking of what is not his business.
I apply that to my speech: Am I talking about what is directly my business or am I pontificating nonsense to an unsuspecting ear. Found mostly the latter.
Therefore I made these rules for DARA, not instructions to you and the Mankind, exclusively targeted guidelines in Dara’s personal life for Dara’s speech:
- Speak when spoken to and talk about what is my immediate business or fall silent
- Speak about what I know, if I do not know say “I do not know”, and then make an attempt to research to learn with hugest verve, get back to the person and inform them accordingly, being it a long time later
- Shun any speech about what I do not do! Since Allah hates the actions of those who say what they do not do. I am not generous so I do not write about charity. I am not brave so I do not write about armed struggle. I have had difficulties in my personal life therefore I do not write about man woman relationship or marriage or sex.
- Seek yearn no compensation e.g. people following me or expect them to listen to me or call me some lofty title or publish my work or invite me for talks. So I think of my words as arrows, once they leave the bow better hit the target or I will harm someone, unintended target yet fully liable.
Obviously these advice(s) bear a dull life, no one interested to socialize with boring me or invite me to their homes or call me on the day of the Eid and probably the day of my passing no one will attend the funeral.
I ask Allah to aid me to win the battle against the demon in my mouth, the rest matters not!
