We, “all of us Muslims” have to start saying we are “Muslims.” As the Almighty Allah (swt) states in ayat 33:5, 9:11, 49:10, a Muslim is a brother to a Muslim.
Division must end; we must unite because Shaytan is waging war against us! We have the same Qur’an: unaltered and well-guarded; we give zakah; and if we can afford it, we go to Hajj once in a lifetime. Why is there division? Everyday Muslims are killed everywhere, from Palestine, to Kashmir, to all corners of the Muslim world. Don’t forget daily drone attacks killing innocent Muslim men, women, and children!
Muslims are wealthy, like Iran that is making its own technology; look at China sending a woman into space. It is about time we unite; we are all Muslims; we have to love one another and support each other. I cried when Mohamed Morsi won the election in Egypt.
