Muslim World's Barriers to Progress

Muslim World's Barriers to Progress

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Dear Muslims,

Please be cognizant of these barriers to our collective progress:

1. As long as we allow anti-Israel/anti-Semites to continue to infiltrate and eventually dictate the narratives of our organizations, schools and Mosques, in the expense of other more collective crucial issues, we shall continue to unnecessarily regress even further.

2. As long as we allow our scholars/imams to be selective with their quotes/speeches in portraying women as less in status than men, we shall continue to be primitive dependents.

3. As long we allow imams/scholars to define knowledge mainly within the prism of memorization/melodious reading of the Holy Qur'an and being able to speaking Arabic (in expense of Science, Engineering, Law, Mathematics, Technology, Medicine, Arts, etc.), we shall continue to be the owner of larger share of landless, humiliated refugee populations and conflicts-preoccupied nations.
