unity

Its not just Muslims who struggle with having a unifified date for events

Christians hope to unify the date for easter. The western churches have it often a week earlier than the orthodox church.

(Christmas is a less remembered one, where AFAIK the orthodox church ceebrate it on 6 January).

However, having different dates should not be an issue for disunity - there are accounts from the times of the sahabah of differing locations starting ramadan/eid on different days and this was allowed and not condemned.

Pakistan's Sect Free Mosque

ISLAMABAD – For any Pakistani Muslim, Islamabad’s Qutuba Mosque is no different from other houses of worship as far as the structure, style, and operation.

Yet, a small white banner placed right on the entrance of the mosque makes it unique.

The banner reads “This Mosque is meant for all the Muslims irrespective of their sects,” with two verses of Pakistan’s national Poet Allama Mohammad  Iqbal  reminding Muslims about the true spirit of prayer and urging them to shun their differences and get united.

why cant you intergrate into society like others?

From my friendly discourse with Casuals United:

why cant you intergrate into society like other races? why moan and set up ghettos and no go zones for whites etc?

Have you personally been exposed to any of these "no go zones" for whites? Are you sure they are not simply a figment of the media's imagination (actually no, I do suspect there to be morons around where there are such cases and yes, if they do exist, they are wrong)

I have a friend hounded out of a property he bought and paid for because it was in a predominantly white area. He repeatedly was threatened, had his windows smashed, people threaten and break in.

There should be no "no go zones" anywhere IMO as they are all bad and counter productive.

The four madhabs

Interesting, scholarly article. Read it if you have time.

UNDERSTANDING THE FOUR MADHHABS

the problem with anti-madhhabism

The ummah's greatest achievement over the past millennium has undoubtedly been its internal intellectual cohesion. From the fifth century of the Hijra almost to the present day, and despite the outward drama of the clash of dynasties, the Sunni Muslims have maintained an almost unfailing attitude of religious respect and brotherhood among themselves. It is a striking fact that virtually no religious wars, riots or persecutions divided them during this extended period, so difficult in other ways.

The Lion and the Three Bulls

There was once a Lion who came across three bulls: a red bull, a white bull and a black bull. The Lion tried to attack them but because they were strong together he decided to bide his time. He befriended the bulls and told them he was protecting them.

One day he called the Red Bull and the Black Bull and said ”My friends I am really concerned for you.”
“Why?” they asked. The Lion responded “The White Bull represents a threat to you; he stands out with his complexion and he is going to make you a target for other predators and hunters; the lives of both of you at risk, let me eliminate him.”
