I just want to make a brief message about the effort of Dawah and the
misconceptions people have of what Dawah really is. Dawah, as most reputable scholars put
it, is not confined to a particular type of activity or group, but is the
responsibility of all mumineen.
Some brothers insult some efforts with their wild rhetoric and insults, without
truely searching for the goodness in the effort, and realizing that to deter them
from participating in an effort that is Haq, shaytan will manipulate our nafs and
make us look at the faults of others, and to boost our ego, and pride make us
think that we are better than a certain group, and that their effort is bad. We come
up with well devised explanations for the faults and drawbacks of the effort
which serve to satisfy our nafs which want us remain the way we are and do the
minimum possible in service to diin.
I am not singling anyone out or attacking anyone, and the slanders against the
activities of khourouj only serve to further divide the ummah, and make us
associate ourselves with Wahabbi ideas, or as "tablighis" or Jamaati islami etc...
I hope to explain more in future posts, but I just want everyone to know that I
literally owe my life to the effort of Khourouj, for if it were not the effort of
concerned brothers in my community I have no clue were I would be today.
I was heading down the path of self destruction, and nearing the end of the road,
when Allah Almighty decided to use the local brothers involved in this effort as
a means of giving me guidance, and come back to the straight and narrow.
I have made many discussions with brothers who had been misinformed, or just had
no knowledge of what is truely the purpose of going in khourouj, and what
benefits can come from it and that it is a true form of Dawah based on proper Quran and
Sunnah tradition. This does not mean that there aren't a few individuals who have
some deviant beliefs and ideas who do this effort, but that is the whole idea, to
make an effort on all our shortcoming so we can correct them and practice true
deen and become closer to Allah S.W.T.
please forgive me if I have offended anyone, I am just a learner as are we all
trying to do the best we can with the means at our disposal.
I encourage any brothers who would like to ask me any questions, or need any
clarification on anything I wrote to please contact me, and I will do what I can to
find you an answer...

Sorry brother/sister, I understand your sincerety in wanting to explain what you are trying to say but I didn't understand your bit about having wahabbi ideas. ????
