perhaps i should have said ' the gentlemen is older than you'MH yours truly is not a full professor. And moreover the brother knows something along these lines which he is using to his supposed advantage. He is passing through a phase and needs some time to over come his stumbling blocks. To bring around people like him to the side of Islam is precisely the task for which I started my Internal Dawah thread. Like many spiritual tasks this one too is an spiritual task. And the spiritual tasks are the most difficult tasks. The implication is that we have a difficult task at our hands and we should expect strong resistance. In fact the task is difficult and extensive enough that a life can be fruitfully be invested in this task with expectation of greatest rewards in the hereafter. Of course Allah (SWT) is Al-Hadi too and He (SWT) might change the hearts of all Muslims so that all of them will put their weight behind Islam. It might happen just in front of our eyes. A telephone was a an exotica yesterday while today even public buses in some countries are on GPS. But it does require patience on our part in our efforts to bring people to the side of Islam. And let me re-iterate that I mean the object is to bring resourceful Muslims to the mindset in which they support Islam and Ummah rather than oppose it. It is in addition to the Tabligh work and the Dawah work amongst non-Muslims.
Finally I did not intend at all to divulge my position. I wanted to keep it unknown and allow people to make their own image. Intention was to keep the focus on Islam. I do derive benefits from my position but that is in my professional field. Apart from my field of expertize, whatever little it is, I am a lay person every where else and I prefer it that way. It is Allah (SWT)'s decision and hence it is best for me and everybody else. Being an unknown nobody saves you from love of fame and thus protects your Ikhlas.
apologies to saqqib. my words werent the best. im sorry.
