EXTREMIST

    Dear Qasim,

    I just finished your wonderful book. I am an Eastern Orthodox priest of a parish founded by Orthodox Christians from Syria. Now they, too, are facing the violence of Muslim fundamentalism. Such evil exists in all religions, Qasim, and I have dedicated my ministry to teaching, as St. Paul calls it, the better way, which is love. It begins as you have noted with small intolerances and grows into grand genocidal schemes. I appreciate very much what you are doing and will recommend your book.to others. God be with us all.

    Peace, I saw your book advertised in the MKA Connect newsletter, and copy arrived today. It is compelling and so important for our times. Will you be signing copies at the Jalsa this weekend, if so, I will bring my book for your inscription. Wishing you every success with this journey. Peace, Sister M. Karim

    What an excellent read, such a tragic tale of hardship and suffering – I truly hope that all people whoever you are in whatever positions you hold, take on board the message that state sponsored persecution is fundamentally wrong, and each one of us has a responsibility actual no.. We have a moral obligation to do whatever we can to stop those that oppress and bring suffering to all people of faith and no faith, no matter if even that means a chat with our own children about developing tolerance and peace with all mankind.

    I highly recommend this book to all, a journey into a world many of us can’t even imagine or chose to ignore – either way Qasim hits the nail on the head with his personal accounts as well as actual events to describe in horrific details about the persecution of minority groups and for whatever reasons being allowed and more shockingly being encouraged by said governments. Love for Humanity should always come first- without this we simply operate as animals.

    Qasim, I believe your book has not elaborated as why in the” Land of Pure” things went wrong against the Ahmadiyya community in 1953 and to control the situation first Martial law was imposed.Regarding persecution of people or community who is in Minority as per faith has prevalent in the history of Islam. Take the example of Ummayyad and Abbasiyyad “Khilafat’s” What Mughul Emperors did with their brothers and Uncle’s is part of the history. Why the Government’s of Pakistan, Indonesia and Malaysia have taken action against only Ahmadiyya community in their countries.Kindly elaborate on it.

    Dear Qasim,
    I just finished reading your book. It is amazing! This is a human rights horror story. I had NO idea that this was going on. I thank you for educating me, so that now I can in turn, educate others and spread the word. I work in the library at Glenbard South and am really looking forward to meeting you when you come to speak in a few weeks. This book spans every religion (I am Christian), and speaks to everyone. I recommend this book to people of all faiths, or of no faith. It does not matter. Everyone needs to know this is happening in our world. Everyone should have the basic human right of freedom. Freedom of CHOICE. Freedom of expression. Freedom of religion. Thank you Qasim for working so hard to bring this human rights story to life.

      Thank you for your kind and compassionate words Kim. I eagerly look forward to meeting you very soon too!

    Asalaamalaikum.
    I hope you and your family are in good health.
    I purchased your book at the book stall during jalsa.
    Mash’allah you have explained everything so perfectly. Your approach had me caught throughout the book and your sarcasm really gave me the giggles. It is heart breaking that all that is related in the book is in fact reality and I pray may Allah Almighty gives us all the strength to tackle these hardships with tolerance and peace. And I would like to thank you for reminding us what we should be aiming and praying for.
    I just want to add how really nice it was to read the way you showed your appreciation towards your wife at the end. I don’t know how many men would actually openly do that :) let’s hope now the numbers will increase ๐Ÿ‘
    May Allah always give you and your family a happy peaceful life. Ameen.

    Qasim,

    Assalam Alaikum: As a ‘revert’ to be, I have enjoyed and gained much from your articles in the Huffington Post. I was worried about the verse (4.34), yet after reading the whole of the Qur’an, I can see that it needs to be placed in proper context. I find the disparity between what the Western Media says about muslims and the actual conduct (of those who i know) quite broad. I look forward to reading your book and hope your community, collectively, sees better days. .

    I hope that the Islamic World embraces the Middle Way and condones the idiotic readings of Islamic texts that is sullying the nature of a Great Philosophy/Religion. Readings which are welcomes, and maybe even ‘stoked’ by those powers whose material interests are to sew discord in certain areas in the world.

    Yahya.

    Asalaamoalaikum Qasim sb,

    Mashallah, Mashallah, Mashallah what a blessed piece of work. It truly hits home and renews pride and belief in faith, peace, truth and our beloved motto ‘Love for all, hatred for none.’ May Allah bless your work and may the world read this book for an insight into (and result in the sincere desire to seek) the truth. Amen. God bless humanity!

    Mr. Rashid, I am a protestant minister, and I use the words of people like you, and the honourable Yahya Hendi, and others as guideposts in my sermons and bible studies. We must all work together, and love together, lest we perish together. I will continue to pray for your success, and may almighty God grant you peace and understanding.

    Dear Mr. Rashid,

    I am a fundamental Baptist born again Christian and I found your article “What Prophet Muhammad would say to Boko Haram” to be very thoughtful and insiteful. I do have a question however regarding the use of the Koran to justify Muslim actions. I have read that the Hadith has higher authority over the Koran when there is a conflict between the two. This is due to the nature / concept that resolving the conflict is accomplished by using a policy that says the last / most recnt statment / verse is more important than the first, when it is Koran verses the Hadith that is. Can you explain this in more detail because if that is the case, I have read where Muhammed the Prophet allowed / encouraged the killing of many people regardless of their age, gender, etc. Thank you,

    • May 9, 2014 at 7:12 pm

      Hi James,

      Thanks for reading and thanks for your comment. Actually the exact opposite is true — the Qur’an always supersedes the hadith. Here’s a great article that talks about this in detail: https://www.alislam.org/books/essence/chap3/chap3.html Let me know what questions you have once you get a chance to read through this.

    Dear Mr. Rashid,
    Thank you for the strength and courage and light you offer to the world. I just watched the your interview on Fox News. Congratulations on your persuasive ecumenicism. We need more religious, political and business leaders who think like you.
    Salaam alaykom. Shalom. Dominus vobiscum. Have a nice day. :o)

      Thank you for watching and for sharing your kind thoughts! God bless and God speed! Wasalaam

    In my opinion Qasim you’re doing a brilliant work I totally agreed with. We should do all work for human rights.that’s all.
