When I respond, or seek responses, I think of the Internet Republic and the people [[whump]] and the places who have made our water world Eden brave and free and fair. Permitted, required, and impossible. Stand alone or stand with, whose choice to what degree [[Thn/]] O[[thn/]]ne water world Eden under "We the people" – created by whom?

Asalam wa laylkum brother Mohammed Ali ℅ you brother, Abucar, how are you?

Please forgive me if I embarrassed you in any way at Juma for drawing attention to the politics of prayer spots, but as a presidential [Brhuh!] candidate yourself, you surely comprehend the importance of not being embarrassed by making our own lives examples for others to role model.

You love Islam so much you know one of the best prayer spots in the entire mosque, and you dutifully and faithfully put forth the substantial effort it takes to establish your prayer in that one spot, and we all know and love you for that. 

I failed to mention that part sufficiently, and God willing, I will amend the record as soon as I am able, so that it’s clear no matter how much we love any one particular prayer spot or mosque, it is our duty to find a new prayer spot each time we pray. 

In fact YOUR practice of going from mosque to mosque to make Hkubah speeches is a PERFECT EXAMPLE OF FULFILLING THAT MORAL DUTY, and that too should have been mentioned at the time, so who could not reasonably misunderstand. Thank God, your tolerance for brother Calipha’s bravery in demonstrating about that point was mentioned to you by me the night before Juma.

You know I love you and respect you, and I apologize for not being more thorough in trying to make the point. 

It’s also a good example for police officers, like the US Secret Service in front of the White House, who were very much on my mind at that time, that THEY should be finding a new prayer spot each time they pray instead of establishing fixed positions occupying the White House side walk and Pennsylvania avenue as if it were some graven image of their religion of police control which maximizes THEIR view of the White House, and THEIR convenience of being close, so close they invade our right to talk in public without being constantly monitored by police.

It also applies to people who derive their income from one kind of asset only. There is a case for specialization, but there is also a case for diversification even unto making sure people who derive their income solely from strife assets diversify so at least 50% of their portfolio and / or income stream (s) is from non-strife [sound]… No matter how good their intentions to be defending whom…

The way you beckoned us ALL to come forward during the Hkbah spoke to the love you have for us, and the love we have for you, so I’m sure no damage was done to your excellent reputation, God willing, I hope, and I will continue to be praying about this to be more sure, in sha lah.

Remember brother Cameron? When Condolezza Rice was US Secretary of state, he used to pray in the the prayer spot you love [thn/]. He said it was the best prayer spot because it was closest to the right of the Imam. He said it gave extra blessings to whom prayed there. So their is proof your sense of worship is 100% correct. Perhaps one [thn/] [thn/] Perhaps Brother Calipha will [thn/] take you by the shoulders and put you in the Imam’s position for one prayer and put who else in your prayer spot to show HE does not covet any one particular [thn/] spot, but then our other brother Shake Imam Mohammed from Somalia often leads the prayers while brother Calipha [thn/] So… everyone IS already doing a great job… and likley more people know who you are now, and about the importance of the prayer spot you choose.

No matter how much we love Islam, or anything… would be the theme – and it would lead into the need for police officers who love their area so much they want to be friendly and make people feel welcome, but the true test is to make them self correcting, self educating, collaboratively self governing people, and so the officer needs to learn to ask permission to initiate a social conversation, “May I ask how you’re doing today, Mr. Hale?” to demonstrate to the citizens it is THEY who are in charge, and THEY who have [thn/] the duty to protect the area, and THEY who have the duty to govern so well the police are no longer needed in the area so much and the police can be free to move along to more dangerous areas where their guns are really needed – and where they will now have the volunteer support from the fine example of teaching us WE are in charge – for example
“May I ask how you are doing today, Mr. Ali,”
“Oh, you know me, officer Mohammed, you don’t need to ask permission to ask how I am today,”
“You are so kind, brother Ali, but I am training myself to be an example to all citizens that It is THEY who are in charge in this area, and THEY who are responsible for it being loved, and safe, and open, so no matter how well I know people now, I am always asking permission to initiate a conversation first, but of course if YOU initiate the conversation by asking me how I’m doing FIRST, of course THEN I can respond to you without asking permission, and there is the proof YOU have learned YOU, the people of the book, the citizens, are in charge, NOT the police – we are here only to compensate for the failures of those who have TAKEN charge, but who have been unable to adequately educate, or govern, or welcome.

This might be why we need only one uniformed security person at the Islamic Center on Jumas – thanks to such a good job by Director Koujh and the core group of employees and volunteers, including yourself, brother Mohammed Ali.

Asalam wa lay kum, peaceful possibilities and events upon you, how are you?

haji Mohammed Omar.
