58th Annual ISNA Convention - Questions & Answers Session with Javed Ahmed Ghamidi

  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    [Hassan Ilyas] In the Name of Allah, the
    Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    Assalamu alaikum I am Mohammad
    Hassan Ilyas and right now
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    we are in Dallas (Ghamdi centre of
    Islamic learning ISNA) which is
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    the oldest group of Muslims in America.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    ISNA is having it’s annual convocation but
    it couldn’t happen due to Covid-19.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    The organizers requested that we should
    record
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    some conversations with Ghamidi Sahab.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    Ahmed Ghamdi Sahab for the participants
    of this convocation and
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    that these conversations are related
    to the socio-religious challenges
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    facing Muslims within the United States.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    We apologize for the inconvenience
    and we are having with us.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    Mr. Ghamdi Sahab Asalamu alaikum.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    [Javed Ahmad Ghamidi] :Walikum Asalam
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    (Ilyas): Ghamdi Sahab, thank you very much
    for your time.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    At this time, you are being heard by ISNA
    people all over the world and
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    especially the Muslim community in
    America.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    I would like to tell you first,
    that 57 years ago today,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    the foundation of this organization was
    done by
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    "The Islamic Society of North
    America”,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    which is a group of Muslims who settled
    in Western countries
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    and then became part of the committee
    and through the systematic efforts
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    of their organization,(1min16sec) ?
    some of them tried to advance
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    their mission by helping the educated and
    social people.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    How do you see this whole idea and
    your own perspective of introduction
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    to ISNA? Or what are the ideas?
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    (Ghamdi):This is a very unusual thing and
    no matter how much it is appreciated,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    wherever we go, the needs of human society
    come to the fore.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    When we move to a foreign place or a
    foreign society or
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    a place where our culture, tradition,
    civilization is not being followed,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    we will face difficulty there.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    These problems can be social, cultural
    and sometimes physiological.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    The best way out for all these problems
    for a Muslim or any other nation,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    is to form its own community.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    People who are associated with it, who
    belong to the same civilization,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    who come from the same background, not
    only understand their issues,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    but also have a special background in
    resolving them.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    With all these things in mind, creating
    such organizations and
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    creating a bond between them, even if it
    is more than one,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    does not matter at all.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    However, the ideal situation is that
    wherever Muslims go,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    their only organization should come into
    existence because such organizations
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    have no intellectual aspect.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    What is meant by this is what problems
    many Muslims are facing.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    What is the need for them as a
    community?
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    such organizations are formed by putting
    them in front .
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    So in my opinion, it is difficult to create
    unity in the organizations that are
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    formed on the basis of Ideology or in
    which there are ideological discussions
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    and perhaps there is no need for it.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    [Ilyas] okay
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    [Ghamidi] Their point is that it addresses
    your mind and in this respect,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    for example, there are different Societies
    within Muslims,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    there are differences, there is a lot of
    difference in thinking,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    on the basis of which the organization
    Institutions are formed but a Muslim,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    as a community, and a Muslim as a society,
    have some problems.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    These organizations help them in arranging
    their mosques, guiding them in matters
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    of fasting and prayers, and meeting their
    needs in regard to Hajj and ‘Umrah.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    As in the case of (3.45mins)???,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    if all these needs are put in front of
    them and their general education
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    is made the goal, that is, something on
    which there is no disagreement.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    As we usually say, elementary education is
    broad-based.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    If an organization is formed, I think it’s
    a (3.55) ??? …
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    you may be aware, we in India
    once had a brilliant scholar
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    who put forward the view that the Muslim
    political system is over.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    So a (4.25)??? should be created for
    the Muslims of the whole subcontinent.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    This dream could not be
    embarrassingly interpreted
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    but when the Muslims have come out of
    one place and they have camped in
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    different countries and in every country
    I think that such organizations
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    must exist and my opinion about them
    is that they should keep themselves
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    away from the differences of opinion
    with the ideologues,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    whether there are physical differences or
    scientific differences or
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    differences of any kind.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    The things that need to be discussed here
    are what the whole community needs,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    what the whole Muslim community
    needs,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    what their cultural traditions need, what
    they need on the festivals.
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    Keeping all these things in view that
    need to be agreed upon,
  • ยังไม่ได้ซิงค์
    establishing such a system is a necessity
    to me as much air and water is needed.
