Do Muslims have to live in a Islamic State? Can Muslims live in a Kufr State (non-Islamic or non-Muslim State), use the kufr system to defend themselves in the Kufr State? What is the difference between the concept of Ummah andQaumiyat (nation or community)?
Muslims residing in the Non-Muslim nation-state, can they be patriotic to their country? Is America a Christian State? What American Muslims should say if some one asks them that why are they in America?
Can American Muslims be loyal to America? Is there a clash of loyalty between Islam and America? Can American Muslims be proud Muslims and patriotic Americans at the same time? And is this permissible in Islam?
This video is beneficial for everyone- Muslims and not Muslims, Americans and not Americans, American Muslims and General Americans, Islamists, Nationalist and what ever “ists” you call yourself.
This video addresses the very important issue out in Public just like the Ulema (Islamic Religious Scholars) in early 1900′s did in South Asia. Indian Ulema went through these kinds of debates, discussion and discourses about being Muslims in the newly found concept of Nation-state.
Disagreement among the Indian Ulema resulted in mainly two groups. 1st group of Ulema supported the unified Indian, where Maulana Abul Hasan Ali Nadwiand Abul Kalam Azad were at the forefront. 2nd group of Ulema supported the Pakistan Movement, where Maulana Shabbir Ahmed Usmani, Students of Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanwi are famous names from famous Islamic SeminaryDarululoom Deoband, while Mawlana Mawdudi supported Pakistan Movement with caution towards the Muslim League.
Many other groups and movements in Pakistan and Middle East then sprang up around 1950′s that propagated skewed and unorthodox concepts about Shariahand Islamic State, those ideas have affected the thinking of Western Muslims and the Easterners since then.
This is a very good sign the Sheikh Yasir Qadhi came out in public and spoke intellectually on a topic that has been in long discussion for past half century and a very hot topic in online forums.

It is paradoxical that in a major recession in the United States, that the general political philosophy of the two main political parties are simultaneously correct while also exclusive. To get the economy back on track, the general philosophy of the Republican Party is needed, but it also leaves the most vulnerable to the effects of the recession without adequate assistance. To assist those who suffer the most negative effects from the recession, it is the general philosophy of the Democratic Party that serves the nation best. Yet, this same general philosophy isn’t effective to get the economy back on track.
How then should a voter, a citizen, to decide which general philosophy should influence their vote. And, more importantly, why can’t both these be addressed simultaneously? Why can not the politicians of any party, simply protect the most vulnerable populations AND do that which is necessary to get the economy back on track?
And, why is almost no one, and certainly no major political party or candidate for any office, stating the number one reason for the recession? Why does every newspaper, regardless of its slant on “news”, and every commentator incorrectly place the blame on numerous different but minor causes for the recession?
The recession, and the by far the number one reason why it continues AND will the the forseable future can be identified in a single word; imports.
Every single purchased import is one less job for an american, from an imported blue jeans, imported shoe, imported car, imported candy bar, imported aspirin, etc. causes the loss of american money to another country that will not come back. The job that could have been generated for an american, will be generated in China, in Mexico, in India, in Turkey, etc.
Prior to 1978, 90% of all shoes were american made, by 1978 less than 10%, by today 1%. Those jobs, over a million are gone.
Not one tv, dvd player, stereo, is made in USA. Levi’s Jeans are not made in America. Most school notebook paper is now imported from Brazil. Every single purchase of these items, causes this recession, causes you or your neighbor not to have a job and contributes to the recession.
The recession, the lack of jobs is OUR fault. And, yes, lack of buying american, at least for those items that still can be bought makes a difference. Each import is a nail in the coffin of America’s future, or your future, of your children’s future.
Read EVERY label. Don’t buy a pack of imported gum when an American made one is sitting there next ot it on the shelf.
Seek out American made items.
Don’t buy a Nike or Reebok sneaker, seek the specific style made in USA by New Balance (not all New Balance are USA made, only some styles). Buy a Red Wing American made work boot or shoe. Buy Amercian made yellow number 2 pencils, not chinese or indian. Buy an American made car or truck (not American company branded import masquerading as American because it has a Ford, GM, Chrysler badge).Buy an American made electric fan.
Yes, it now takes effort to be a patriotic thinking American. Failure to do so makes the recession YOUR fault.
No job? What did YOU do to save American jobs?
No job, but driving an imported car? Whose fault is it that you have no job? How many jobs did YOU send out of the country with the clothing you are wearing right now? With the food you just had during your last meal? With your last trip to a store?
Vote for America with your money.
