Jihad Against Donald Trump

By

Salam,

There is only one form of jihad (lit. struggle) that will be effective against the likes of Donald Trump.

We need to teach him what his parents couldn’t:

LOVE.

(Did you just breathe a sigh of relief?! What do you take me for?!)

Yes, we, the True Muslims who do real jihad everyday, need to respond to Trump’s bigotry with rahma (universal love & mercy).

Now, make no mistake about it, this is a LOT harder than it sounds. (Hey, there’s a reason it’s called ‘jihad’!)

And I’m not suggesting we don’t speak the truth or make out like it’s fine to blame all Muslims for terrorism & campaign to ban us from the USA.

Quite the opposite, I’m suggesting we take the direct advice of the Quran. For example …

  • Allah commanded Moses, peace & blessings upon him, to go to the Pharaoh and “speak a gentle word”.  (Note: Trump isn’t worse than the Pharaoh & you aren’t better than Musa!)
  • Allah commands believers, when facing insults from the ignorant, to “Say ‘Peace’, and turn away in a beautiful manner”.

But how can we possibly do that?

How can we keep our cool when people are trying to intimidate us?

How can we love people who, out of sheer ignorance, hate us?

How can we be kind to people who would ban us from their country, given half a chance?

Hmmm…

“…If only there was some way to transmute our anger, fear & frustration into spiritual power that brings us closer to Allah & empowers us to live according to the spiritual teachings of the Quran…”

Oh wait. There is:

>> How To Master Your Nafs.

Peace, Love & Blessings.

Mamoon
