Sunni Ulama Council: ‘We are overspending resources on foreign causes’

I totally agree with Mr Ismail Omar and Imam Abbas Mkhize that we are overspending our resources and energies on foreign causes at the expense of our local township communities. I have visited many such communities and the situation there is horrible. I don’t see why millions should go overseas while the Masjid next door doesn’t even have carpets and a Wudu facility.

Perhaps it is that we “Asian” Muslims construct our identities through identifying with the Arab world and its institutions and issues.

I believe it is high time we re-construct our identities as proudly “African Muslims”. Unless this is done, we will never solve this problem, and Syria will always seem closer to us than Soweto.

Was-Salam
