Asalaam alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu,
Bless you ZeE for moving this to the Secret Chamber, the last thing we need is for people to see the Ansari disagreeing with one another.
The message we all believe in is so much more important than our personal differences and opinions and we need to be examples. Like everyone jumped on Ahmed and his testimony in public. That's not the behavior the Ansari family should be associated with. It's sad to see that.
First it was the Maskh and Reincarnation issue, now it is music. It seems as though there is always one thing or another used to cause disharmony among the troops.
Seriously, if ANYONE, even the Ansari have a problem with Abdullah's work, then with all due respect, don't watch. It's as simple as that.
How many times do we have to go through this before it is understood?
How many times will you attack our brother and his service for the Ahlul Bayt a.s before you realise?
We all have such mountains of sins on our backs that we can't even walk straight, yet we are looking at other peoples loads and comparing.
It's sad. It's really really sad.
Let me tell you something, Abdullah's work has saved so many people, myself included.
You've seen the testimonies for yourselves.
How many of those people had the same story?
I know Zainab and her husband Dawud. Her husband is a Jamaican brother who's mother is a Rastafarian.
He grew up with no pull towards religion, until he came across Abdullah's work.
He converted to Islam and started practicing but because he was around Sunni people he practiced the Sunni prayer etc. Then the more he learnt from Abdullah's work, the more it inspired him to learn about the Ahlul Bayt a.s and the Shia way and now he is an Ansari and believer in Imam Ahmed a.s.
You all know our amazing brother PaRa. PaRa was an atheist - a complete disbeliever in God.
He is now learning about Islam. And he believes in One Allah and Muhammed s.a.w as His Messenger.
Can you seriously not see the blessings in Abdullah's work??
If you are so against music, then please, please don't come here and attack our brothers work.
Don't even watch if you are so upset and offended by it.
Remember, you don't even know how close the Ansari are to the Imam a.s. The Imam a.s asks about each of the Ansari by name. We can't even imagine how much the Imam a.s loves the purified Ansari.
So if you hurt one of them you will be hurting those that are loved by the Imam a.s.
So be careful in your behavior with one another.
In case you end up hurting the Imam a.s by hurting one another.
We should be above that. Remember, we are Shia of Ali. We are the higher ones.
