Dear All, Asslamo alekum,
In todays scenario a practicing Muslim has to vage two types of battles. One is against that culture and practices which are against the practices of Islam and lure Muslims away from the Righteous Path.
Second is against the ideology of Muslim brethen itself. It is on this topic that i am initiating this dialogue.
Since I am from India, my views may reflect scars of the Muslim sect in this sub continent. Well mostly through my life i have observed Indian muslims, particularly from the noth part, to be uneducated and irresponsible. I would briefly state on the different ill practice they like to indulge rather than investing time in Islamic activities.
You would see caste and color taking a high post in minds of Muslims from these parts. You will also observe that they are far away from the praticing Muslim image. For them praying five times is ok but other Islamic activites are a taboo. Or if they do these activites you may find hints of advertisements and irony in these practices also.
I would continue on the same topic and wish to see some expert comments on the same.
