When I began this blog a little over a month ago, I knew that there were a lot of my brothers and sisters out there in the country who were feeling exactly as I was, depressed and in pain. As you can see from my output over the past few weeks, I have had a lot of things on my mind for a very long time. Many of you have already written me and shared your sense of frustration and confusion as to the direction we’re going in as Muslims in this country. I have fully appreciated your comments and have been inspired to develop an honest and frank forum to work out our issues.
I would like my readers to know that I have been working over twenty years in the cause of Islam, and whatever any one of you have experienced in your Islamic life, good or bad, I have probably experienced as well. Quite frankly, sometimes I have no idea of what these leaders are up to, and as you can very well tell from my other posts, I intend to let them know that. Both you and I feel the intense pain of previous failures in our efforts to establish an Islamic reality in this country, and we are not about to be bitten from the same hole twice. We’re all in this thing together, and I would love to hear from you if you appreciate what we have to say.
Part 5 of the series any day now (inshallah).
