Re: We need to unite
Yes indeed we need to get united, but the question is who?
I believe that the struggle starts from within, the spiritual warfare that is going in the world today is but a parallel to an invisible warefare inside each one of us. Satan has invisible messengers called (the Jinn beings) each one of us has a companion in the same body, who entices him continously to get over (or under) attached to things and people, Satan uses the visible elements of life (things and people) to bind us all in slavery, thus he wouldn't need a microchip to enslave everybody, the majority are already serving him.
Those who are bound by money and power (our leaders) are on the same side as the average citizen who is bound by his lust and sinful desires (women, alcohol, gambling...etc) or any kind of obsession or addiction, in short anything that distracts you from the truth, righteousness and ultimately God.
If we are ever to get united, we need to reach a common ground, Quran lays this common ground, please reflect on the folloowing words from God:
[3:64] Say, "O followers of the scripture, let us come to a logical agreement between us and you: that we shall not worship except GOD; that we never set up any idols besides Him, nor set up any human beings as lords beside GOD." If they turn away, say, "Bear witness that we are submitters."
Thus we have to free ourselves first from the schakles of enslavement (some idolize Jesus, some idolize their scholars, some idolize Muhammad and the rest idolize their sinful lusts), isn't it about time that we break free and be God-centered again, where is our reverence of the Creator!, and without such a reverence, why would God help us against Satan?
