Message for Friday - Do not fall into disputes



With the Name of G'd, the Merciful Benefactor, the Merciful Redeemer

G'd says in the Qur'an (8:46) - And obey G'd and his messenger. And do not fall into disputes so that you loose heart and your strength leaves you. So be patient; surely G'd is with the patient people.

Part of Satan's scheme is too keep people of faith arguing and disputing among themselves, which includes casting suspicion in the enviroment, which people of faith dwell. In the days of chattel slavery in America, the slave-masters' objective was to keep confusion among slaves and have them distrustful of each other, yet instill within them a higher level of trust in their master, who oppressed them. This was the divide and conquer strategy that was articulated by the infamous Willie Lynch that still is at work today within socio-political and religious realms.

Disputing in smaller issues cultivates an enviroment perfect for the sowers of the seeds of distrust to plant more seeds. The harvest of these seeds are greater levels of disrespect and even violence in some cases.

The people of faith in their servitude to G'd should display patience during matters of dispute in order that the larger objectives are reached. For believers, the objectives are inner contentment in this life and eternal felicity in the hereafter.

And surely G'd knows best.
