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

  • 0:10 - 0:12
    [Hassan Ilyas] In the Name of Allah, the
    Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate.
  • 0:12 - 0:14
    Assalamu alaikum I am Mohammad
    Hassan Ilyas and right now
  • 0:14 - 0:17
    we are in Dallas at the Ghamdi Centre of
    Islamic Learning.
  • 0:17 - 0:21
    ISNA which is the oldest organization
    of Muslims in America.
  • 0:21 - 0:25
    ISNA is having its annual convocation but
    physical participation
  • 0:25 - 0:26
    was hampered due to Covid-19.
  • 0:26 - 0:30
    The organizers requested that we should
    record
  • 0:30 - 0:32
    some conversations with Ghamidi Sahab.
  • 0:32 - 0:35
    for the participants of this convocation
    and
  • 0:35 - 0:40
    that these conversations are related
    to the socio-religious challenges
  • 0:40 - 0:42
    facing Muslims within the United States.
  • 0:43 - 0:46
    Today we are here for this purpose
    we are having with us
  • 0:46 - 0:48
    Mr. Javed Ahmad Ghamdi Sahab
    Asalamu alaikum.
  • 0:48 - 0:49
    [Javed Ahmad Ghamidi]
    Walikum Asalam
  • 0:49 - 0:51
    [Ilyas] Ghamidi Sahab, thank you
    very much for your time.
  • 0:51 - 0:55
    At this time, you are being heard by people
    associated with ISNA all over the world
  • 0:55 - 0:57
    and especially the Muslim community in
    America.
  • 0:57 - 1:01
    I would like to ask you first,
    that 57 years ago today,
  • 1:01 - 1:04
    the foundation of this organization was
    laid
  • 1:04 - 1:06
    as "The Islamic Society of North
    America”,
  • 1:06 - 1:09
    which is a group of Muslims who settled
    in Western countries
  • 1:09 - 1:13
    and then became part of the community
    and through the systematic efforts
  • 1:13 - 1:17
    of their organization, they tried to
    advance their mission and vision
  • 1:17 - 1:20
    by way of helping the people to develop
    social capital and education.
  • 1:20 - 1:23
    How do you see this whole idea and
    please help us with
  • 1:23 - 1:24
    your personal opinion about ISNA?
  • 1:24 - 1:27
    [Ghamidi] This is an extraordinary
    achievement, and
  • 1:27 - 1:29
    it should be greatly appreciated.
  • 1:29 - 1:35
    Wherever we go, the needs of human society
    come to the fore.
  • 1:36 - 1:40
    When we move to a foreign place or a
    foreign society
  • 1:40 - 1:46
    or a place where our culture, tradition,
    civilization is not being followed,
  • 1:47 - 1:49
    we will face difficulties there.
  • 1:49 - 1:55
    These problems can be social, cultural
    and sometimes psychological.
  • 1:55 - 2:01
    The best way out of all these problems
    for a Muslim or any other nation,
  • 2:01 - 2:04
    is to organize its own community.
  • 2:05 - 2:09
    People who are associated with it, who
    belong to the same tradition,
  • 2:10 - 2:15
    who come from the same background, not
    only understand their issues,
  • 2:15 - 2:19
    but also have a special background which
    aids them in resolving them.
  • 2:19 - 2:23
    With all these things in mind, creating
    such organizations and
  • 2:23 - 2:29
    creating a bond between them, even if it
    is more than one, it does not matter.
  • 2:29 - 2:34
    However, the ideal situation is that
    wherever Muslims go,
  • 2:34 - 2:39
    only one organization should come into
    existence because such organizations
  • 2:39 - 2:42
    have no ideological aspect.
  • 2:42 - 2:45
    The reason for establishing these
    organizations is to check,
  • 2:45 - 2:48
    if Muslims are in some sort of
    problems as a community?
  • 2:48 - 2:52
    Such organizations are formed keeping in
    view the aforementioned objectives.
  • 2:52 - 2:57
    So in my opinion it is difficult to create
    unity in the organizations that are
  • 2:57 - 3:02
    formed on the basis of Ideology or in
    which there are ideological discussions
  • 3:02 - 3:04
    and perhaps there is no need for it
    as well.
  • 3:04 - 3:05
    [Ilyas] okay
  • 3:05 - 3:09
    [Ghamidi] Their goal is that they address
    your mind and in this respect,
  • 3:09 - 3:13
    for example, there are different
    groups, sects among Muslims,
  • 3:13 - 3:18
    there is a difference in thinking, which
    leads to formation of an organisation,
  • 3:18 - 3:21
    as well as institutions.
  • 3:21 - 3:27
    but as a community, Muslim too face
    some challenges.
  • 3:27 - 3:31
    For instance to help Muslims in managing
    their mosques, guiding them in matters
  • 3:31 - 3:36
    of fasting and prayers, and meeting their
    needs in regard to Hajj and ‘Umrah.
  • 3:36 - 3:39
    As in the case of funeral arrangements,
  • 3:39 - 3:43
    if all these needs are put in front of
    them and their general education
  • 3:43 - 3:47
    is made the goal, that is, something on
    which there is no disagreement.
  • 3:47 - 3:52
    As we usually say, elementary education is
    broad-based.
  • 3:52 - 3:57
    If an organization is formed, I think it
    if of paramount importance.
  • 3:57 - 4:01
    You may be aware, we in India
    once had reputed scholars
  • 4:01 - 4:07
    who put forward the view that now that
    Muslims' political system has collapsed
  • 4:08 - 4:13
    so, there should be a collective system
    for Muslims of the subcontinent.
  • 4:14 - 4:16
    This dream could not be
    achieved,
  • 4:16 - 4:20
    but when the Muslims have come out of
    one place and they have started residing
  • 4:20 - 4:24
    in different countries, I think that
    such organizations
  • 4:24 - 4:29
    must exist and in my opinion they
    should try to transcend themselves
  • 4:29 - 4:32
    from differences of opinion as regards
    ideologies,
  • 4:32 - 4:36
    whether there are intellectual
    differences, juristic differences or
  • 4:36 - 4:38
    differences of any kind.
  • 4:38 - 4:43
    The topics that should be discussed here
    are those that the whole community needs,
  • 4:43 - 4:46
    what the Muslim society as a whole
    needs.
  • 4:47 - 4:52
    what their cultural traditions need, what
    they need regarding agree-upon festivals.
  • 4:52 - 4:55
    Keeping all these things in view that
    are agreed upon,
  • 4:55 - 4:59
    establishing such a system is a necessity
    to me as air and water are needed.
  • 4:59 - 5:01
    [Ilyas] So we will continue this topic.
  • 5:01 - 5:04
    I will state that most of your listeners
    are Muslims
  • 5:04 - 5:06
    in the United States at this time.
  • 5:06 - 5:10
    I will also ask you a few questions
    which we have received from them
  • 5:10 - 5:13
    so that you can put forward your point of
    view about those who immigrated
  • 5:13 - 5:16
    to the United States in large
    number during 1960 -1970’s.
  • 5:16 - 5:20
    They brought their religious and cultural
    traditions here, but for the new generation
  • 5:20 - 5:25
    we see that their is a crisis about
    religious tendencies, cultural aspects,
  • 5:25 - 5:28
    cultural backgrounds, clothing,
    everything.
  • 5:28 - 5:34
    Please, tell me that how parents should
    persuade their children in these issues,
  • 5:34 - 5:37
    so that they should stick to the
    same ideas and principles.
  • 5:38 - 5:42
    I'll offer an example: we know in western
    countries the dress code is different
  • 5:42 - 5:46
    and our Muslim cultural backgrounds have
    different dress codes.
  • 5:46 - 5:50
    So how will the Muslim parents who
    have settled here, convince their children
  • 5:50 - 5:55
    wear simple and decent clothes as
    was the traditions back home?
  • 5:55 - 5:59
    [Ghamidi] The first thing is that wherever
    the parents come from,
  • 5:59 - 6:03
    they have brought their tradition
    with them, their way of life,
  • 6:03 - 6:06
    their way of conversing and
    how they live.
  • 6:06 - 6:08
    The child observes this same
    manner.
  • 6:08 - 6:13
    In the first stage, I always say that
    the way parents want children to become
  • 6:14 - 6:20
    they should become an example of the same
    in their home and their society,
  • 6:20 - 6:24
    because children will see their parents
    and when they will see them,
  • 6:24 - 6:27
    after that the first thing they do when
    they see them,
  • 6:27 - 6:30
    and what they may not feel the need
    to do in their home countries,
  • 6:30 - 6:33
    is to create awareness of their own
    cultural traditions.
  • 6:33 - 6:38
    One thing is for sure, whether you
    were born in Morocco, or
  • 6:38 - 6:43
    in the subcontinent or somewhere in
    the Arab world, and
  • 6:43 - 6:47
    you have lived in the traditions that
    were there and we automatically tend
  • 6:47 - 6:50
    to adopt these traditions and there is
    not much hesitation about accepting
  • 6:50 - 6:53
    the things that are going on
    in a society or its surrounding.
  • 6:53 - 6:55
    But every time you go to another
    society,
  • 6:55 - 7:01
    whatever you choose or insist on, requires
    a reasoning and an argument behind it,
  • 7:02 - 7:06
    so everyone should know when he is
    going to another country.
  • 7:06 - 7:10
    If it has a religious tradition, what is
    the reason behind it?
  • 7:10 - 7:13
    If he’s following certain ethics, what
    is the reason behind it?
  • 7:14 - 7:19
    The way one dresses, engages with people,
    and blends in, it should be known
  • 7:19 - 7:21
    what are the foundations of that?
  • 7:21 - 7:25
    The first thing is that the parents
    themselves should create
  • 7:25 - 7:26
    awareness about it.
  • 7:26 - 7:29
    In other words, they should educate
    themselves.
  • 7:29 - 7:32
    They should arrange for their education
    in these matters.
  • 7:32 - 7:36
    In our case, I have submitted to you that
    these things are usually adopted
  • 7:36 - 7:40
    by observing the society, hearing from the
    parents, which is not
  • 7:40 - 7:44
    a conscious decision, so it should
    be turned into a conscious activity.
  • 7:45 - 7:50
    Once upon a time, some of our scholars
    used the term that Muslims need not to be
  • 7:50 - 7:55
    just Muslim but a conscious Muslim, that
    is, if he renews his faith,
  • 7:55 - 7:57
    then the renewal of faith has not been
    said here in
  • 7:57 - 7:59
    any jurisprudential sense.
  • 7:59 - 8:02
    Rather, it is being said in the sense
    that you have to know yourself,
  • 8:02 - 8:05
    you have to develop self-knowledge
    and self-identity.
  • 8:05 - 8:07
    If you are a Muslim,
    Why you are a Muslim?
  • 8:07 - 8:10
    If you have a cultural background, then
    what is the state of it?
  • 8:10 - 8:13
    What arguments do you have for accepting
    those cultural conditions?
  • 8:13 - 8:16
    You should have knowledge
    pertaining to these things.
  • 8:16 - 8:20
    Obviously, not all people have the same
    aptitude for knowledge,
  • 8:20 - 8:25
    so they should try to understand as
    much as they can.
  • 8:25 - 8:30
    They should try to educate their children about the same and
    they should rationally present these things to their children.
  • 8:31 - 8:34
    To suggest that they will forcefully
    convince their children may not be possible today.
  • 8:34 - 8:36
    Perhaps those times have passed.
  • 8:36 - 8:41
    These things are no longer possible
    in our own countries or even globally.
  • 8:42 - 8:46
    We have entered a world in which each
    and every culture
  • 8:46 - 8:52
    is becoming part of a global civilization
    in spite of their differing identities.
  • 8:52 - 8:59
    And when such a
    situation arises, then you have to explain
  • 8:59 - 9:02
    why you have adopted all those
    things that you have.
  • 9:02 - 9:05
    In this scenario, you can no longer
    rely on parental authority.
  • 9:05 - 9:09
    Then you should try to find out what
    background you are from.
  • 9:09 - 9:14
    You may be from a non-Arab background
    or you may be from an Arab background,
  • 9:14 - 9:16
    you may be from the subcontinent.
  • 9:16 - 9:22
    Wherever you are from, your Islamic language...
    however you would wonder how a language
  • 9:22 - 9:24
    can be divided into Islamic and
    non-Islamic.
  • 9:24 - 9:25
    Of course it is..
  • 9:25 - 9:26
    How is it so?
  • 9:26 - 9:33
    Just as we urge people in our own countries
    to learn the English langue
  • 9:33 - 9:35
    What is the reason behind that?
  • 9:35 - 9:38
    The reason is that it has become the
    language of modern science.
  • 9:38 - 9:42
    There are other languages of modern
    knowledge too but we are referring
  • 9:42 - 9:46
    to that language through which many new
    sciences are now reaching us
  • 9:46 - 9:50
    and we If we want access those sciences,
    then we too must master that language.
  • 9:50 - 9:57
    In the same way, our religion
    came to Arabia, that is,
  • 9:57 - 9:59
    I mean the form of Islam that we
    have received through
  • 9:59 - 10:02
    Muhammad, the Messenger of God (pbuh)
  • 10:02 - 10:06
    It is the religion of all the Prophets,
    and it has always been Islam.
  • 10:06 - 10:10
    But when it was renewed by the
    Prophet (pbuh) and then it was
  • 10:10 - 10:14
    given to the world and The Quran
    was revealed in Arabic,
  • 10:14 - 10:17
    the Prophet (pbuh) himself addressed us
    in this language.
  • 10:17 - 10:22
    Hence, all our sciences began in this
    language. Then came the second period
  • 10:22 - 10:25
    of Persian language and then after that
    Urdu language got this status.
  • 10:25 - 10:28
    It is also a case with some other
    languages that they have their
  • 10:28 - 10:32
    own religious background but if you
    look carefully whatever knowledge
  • 10:32 - 10:36
    has come about with respect to religion
    those great people have
  • 10:36 - 10:40
    written in these languages only and it has
    come into existence through them.
  • 10:41 - 10:45
    So, at least, one of the languages must be
    taught to children.
  • 10:45 - 10:50
    It is also important because you want to
    explain your religion, because
  • 10:50 - 10:53
    you also want to transmit your culture,
  • 10:53 - 10:57
    and you want to keep them connected to
    your traditions.
  • 10:57 - 11:02
    It is also important because a person’s
    memory is shaped by his past
  • 11:02 - 11:06
    and you don’t want to see them alienated
    from the past.
  • 11:06 - 11:10
    These things have their respective
    background and
  • 11:10 - 11:12
    they embody themselves in
    the fabric of language.
  • 11:13 - 11:17
    In other words, language is not just
    a means of communication.
  • 11:17 - 11:21
    It is a big mistake of people to think
    that there are such-and-such facts
  • 11:21 - 11:24
    and If you translate them into such-and-
    such language, the issue will be resolved.
  • 11:24 - 11:29
    It doesn't end there. It means that when an
    advanced level of knowledge is created,
  • 11:29 - 11:33
    it is expressed via the pens and mouths of
    highly intellectual people.
  • 11:33 - 11:37
    And unless and until people are in
    a position to benefit from them directly,
  • 11:38 - 11:41
    after reaching a certain level of
    knowledge,
  • 11:41 - 11:44
    an individual is not influenced by their
    thought.
  • 11:44 - 11:46
    Parents will play a role in teaching their
    children,
  • 11:46 - 11:47
    People will learn from their surroundings,
  • 11:47 - 11:52
    People will learn from thier teachers. Then
    once thosse big questions arise,
  • 11:52 - 11:57
    then it is important that they are aware
    of the intellectual heritage of Muslims.
  • 11:57 - 12:03
    and get to know its great people so that
    they can benefit from the intelligentsia.
  • 12:05 - 12:10
    It is the intelligentsia that keeps you
    connected to it's customs,
  • 12:10 - 12:11
    religious traditions and to it's
    ideology,
  • 12:11 - 12:16
    if it has one. I always give my
    own example that when
  • 12:16 - 12:21
    I was trained by my parents, I understood
    some things and observed other things.
  • 12:21 - 12:27
    Right from the beginning I got acquainted with
    Abul Kalam Azad, Iqbal, Syed Abul A’al Sahab Maududi
  • 12:27 - 12:31
    and Shibli Nomani. These were the elders
    with whom I got acquainted,
  • 12:31 - 12:37
    whose writings came to light and I
    had access to their for writings.
  • 12:37 - 12:43
    As a result, there was no need for me
    to fall back on may parents for my doubts.
  • 12:44 - 12:48
    We must also realize this need and provide
    educational opportunities
  • 12:48 - 12:50
    to our children accordingly.
  • 12:50 - 12:53
    [Ilyas] Totally, I would like to conclude
    with last two questions.
  • 12:53 - 12:57
    The children nowadays studying in
    High school Universities and College;
  • 12:57 - 13:01
    they have a common question to which
    parents have no answer which
  • 13:01 - 13:07
    is that if they are choosing a partner for marriage,
    they argue that there are non-Muslims just as
  • 13:07 - 13:11
    there are Muslims, in that they have good
    morals , they are also doing good deeds,
  • 13:11 - 13:15
    they are also doing charity work, so what
    is the reason that a Muslim boy
  • 13:15 - 13:20
    or girl at the time of getting married,
    should choose a muslim partner
  • 13:20 - 13:23
    as religion has made it obligatory
    for them to choose only from the Muslims.
  • 13:23 - 13:27
    Is their any rational explanation to it
    which the parents can present?
  • 13:27 - 13:31
    [Ghamidi] You said that they have
    good morals and good training.
  • 13:31 - 13:33
    Why do they need these things?
  • 13:33 - 13:43
    Because these are some values on
    which you are not ready to compromise.
  • 13:43 - 13:48
    Which means that a functional home
    would be possible only with good etiquettes.
  • 13:48 - 13:52
    It means that morality is a
    an issue for you.
  • 13:52 - 13:56
    You value it. You want to find it.
  • 13:56 - 13:59
    You call it a necessity of life.
  • 13:59 - 14:01
    Same is the case with religion.
  • 14:01 - 14:05
    If you think that the decision is to be
    based on religion and this decision
  • 14:05 - 14:11
    is to be made on the Day of Judgment and
    my children have to adhere
  • 14:11 - 14:15
    to a religion and my society has to
    be molded by a religion
  • 14:15 - 14:18
    then that means that religion is
    an issue for you.
  • 14:18 - 14:22
    If religion matters to you, then it
    should matter to you
  • 14:22 - 14:28
    in marriage as well. It is a very simple
    intellectual issue. And should be looked at like that.
  • 14:28 - 14:35
    There are those things that I consider important,
    those that I consider to be a cause for concern,
  • 14:35 - 14:41
    are the sort of things that I analyse. I will analyse
    the values of the other person whom I have to marry
  • 14:41 - 14:43
    I have to marry.
    I want to build a home.
  • 14:43 - 14:44
    It’s a lifelong decision.
  • 14:44 - 14:45
    I will have children.
  • 14:45 - 14:47
    They have to learn.
  • 14:47 - 14:52
    So the real issue is that religion is no
    longer relevant for children.
  • 14:52 - 14:58
    Religion is no longer a part of
    their intellect, their thoughts and their life.
  • 14:58 - 15:02
    They see that the parents want
    to force them to adhere to their religion
  • 15:02 - 15:08
    and this again raises the question in front
    of them as to why religion
  • 15:08 - 15:11
    should become an obstacle in the way
    of what they like and what they love.
  • 15:12 - 15:16
    This question will continue to come up
    until we present religion to our children
  • 15:16 - 15:22
    in such a way that it does becomes
    constitutive in a moral way
  • 15:22 - 15:25
    of their intellectual and cultural being.
  • 15:25 - 15:28
    When that happens, they will stop
    posing such questions.
  • 15:28 - 15:32
    [Hassan] Please will you also shed light
    on whether Muslims
  • 15:32 - 15:34
    should be involved in the local or
    national politics of the United States,
  • 15:36 - 15:40
    It is often suggested that there are a few
    major parties that have their own
  • 15:40 - 15:47
    manifestos and there are things in those
    manifesto that are also against Islam,
  • 15:47 - 15:50
    so if a person becomes a part of these
    parties and
  • 15:50 - 15:51
    becomes active in local politics,
  • 15:51 - 15:54
    then is that an issue from a
    religious point of view?
  • 15:54 - 15:58
    [Ghamidi] Of course, that should be the case.
    I ask you to consider the countries you visit
  • 15:58 - 16:02
    as your own country once you
    have acquired their citizenship.
  • 16:02 - 16:05
    You should feel a sense of belonging
    to that land.
  • 16:05 - 16:08
    You should be loyal to that land.
  • 16:08 - 16:13
    You should think about the development of that country
    and when you have all theses things in mind,
  • 16:13 - 16:17
    then if you have a political acumen in you,
    then you will definitely
  • 16:17 - 16:21
    participate in politics. In our culture,
    most people are still associated
  • 16:21 - 16:23
    with the politics of their former
    countries and mentally
  • 16:23 - 16:24
    they are still living in the countries
    of their birth.
  • 16:24 - 16:28
    They should be fully integrated to
    the land they have chosen for themselves.
  • 16:28 - 16:33
    They must understand the politics and
    conditions of the land they belong to and
  • 16:33 - 16:34
    should participate in political parties.
  • 16:34 - 16:40
    In democratic countries, It is accepted
    that you can live with differences of opinion.
  • 16:40 - 16:44
    Explain your differences of opinion and if
    you are huge in number,
  • 16:44 - 16:48
    then you will start affecting those
    manifesto as well.
  • 16:48 - 16:51
    It will also affect its cultural outcome.
  • 16:51 - 16:56
    If you will remain unrelated, then you
    will only suffer the consequences.
  • 16:56 - 16:58
    You will have no share in it.
  • 16:58 - 17:02
    That’s why in my opinion if people are
    having a political acumen,
  • 17:02 - 17:03
    they must participate.
  • 17:03 - 17:07
    [Hassan] Alright. Finally, I
    would like a message from you
  • 17:07 - 17:08
    and we will end with the same message.
    We are well aware that our religion
  • 17:08 - 17:12
    has covered everything from an ethical
    and cosmopolitan point of view.
  • 17:12 - 17:16
    Do you think that Muslims should learn
    something from
  • 17:16 - 17:21
    the western culture and society after they have
    become a part of it and if that is the case,
  • 17:21 - 17:22
    then what are those things that they
    should learn?
  • 17:22 - 17:26
    [Ghamidi] They have come because there
    is some attraction for them here,
  • 17:26 - 17:30
    that is, how these societies have made
    their journey,
  • 17:31 - 17:35
    how they have gone through different
    stages, how they gotten rid of
  • 17:35 - 17:39
    their past. What happened to them
    when the Renaissance
  • 17:39 - 17:43
    took place and what consequences did they face in a situation of revival of the sciences?
  • 17:43 - 17:51
    What affects has modern science, its
    inventions and discoveries had on their minds?
  • 17:51 - 18:00
    We should study the consequences those discoveries have had on our societies. There is a lot to learn.
  • 18:00 - 18:08
    The fact is that it’s not just about the inventions.
    It is not only airplane, the Internet, radio,
  • 18:08 - 18:15
    and television that have had serious consequences. Extraordinary work has been carried out
  • 18:15 - 18:17
    in the social sciences or sociology.
  • 18:17 - 18:21
    Similarly, how should the organization of
    the society be?
  • 18:21 - 18:25
    How should the political system be
    established from the bottom to the top?
  • 18:25 - 18:29
    The institutes that are constituted for
    running a political system like
  • 18:29 - 18:33
    legislature, judiciary and what will be
    the their mutual aspects.
  • 18:33 - 18:35
    There is a lot to learn from these things.
  • 18:35 - 18:38
    A believer should always be
    willing to learn.
  • 18:38 - 18:41
    Knowledge cannot be divided into
    West or East.
  • 18:41 - 18:45
    The correct rule is that the Al hikmatu
    zalatul moomin,
  • 18:46 - 18:51
    The job of a believer is to understand
    everything in the light of his religion,
  • 18:51 - 18:57
    to understand it in terms of his cultural
    values,
  • 18:57 - 19:00
    and take whatever is right in it as his
    own inheritance.
  • 19:00 - 19:07
    And if there is something wrong in our
    culture or society,
  • 19:07 - 19:09
    it is out moral duty
    to point out those shortcomings.
  • 19:09 - 19:12
    Same should be the case here
    in these societies,
  • 19:12 - 19:20
    We will be of service here in a similar manner .
    It can be the case that those things that are wrong according to us, even if we
    understand the right and
  • 19:20 - 19:26
    stand with it and explain the mistake,
    then this society and
  • 19:26 - 19:29
    its future generations will also be
    grateful to us.
  • 19:29 - 19:31
    [Hassan] We are out of time, Ghamidi
    sb.
  • 19:31 - 19:37
    We included Ghamidi sahab
    remotely in the annual convocation
  • 19:37 - 19:41
    of Islamic Society of North America ISNA,
    and his thoughts reached all the participants.
  • 19:41 - 19:44
    We’re thankful on behalf of the
    organization as well
  • 19:44 - 19:46
    for allowing us to express our
    views.
  • 19:46 - 19:49
    Insha’Allah, if we ever get a
    chance,
  • 19:49 - 19:50
    we will listen directly to
    Ghamidi sb in this convocation.
  • 19:50 - 19:52
    Thank you very much
    for your time.
  • 19:52 - 19:53
    [Ghamidi] Thank u so much.
