a top notch post.The quran is very explicit, if your a mumin you will consider other believers as "blood brothers"
Surely all believers are brothers. So make peace between brothers, and fear Allah that mercy may be shown to you (49:10)
The verse is talking about Mumin not Muslim, Muslim is just the first stage of belief were faith hasn't yet penetrated your heart.
It's actually a litmus test for you to know if you have reached the stage of being a Mumin or if your still just a Muslim, the 3 stages are Muslim, Mumin, Muhsin.
There is no doubt that we have no unity today, but this noble quranic term should never be used in such a careless way were it can be perceived by others as 'mocking'.
I see this all the time on her with comments like "meh ummah" in a derogatory way by many, this is really an attack against Islam disguised as criticism towards Arab's or Asian's, and I see this mainly with Somali's and to some extent AA's
How ironic that we happen to be the only homogeneous group of all the Muslims today who continue to slaughter each other over qabiil which even the infidels don't do.
We should be the last people to get offended by the hypocrisy of others using the term "ummah" to mean there own racial groups.
I don't even blame those confused salafists Arab wannabe's unless they are off the qabiilist hypocrite types.
Because who would want to be part of a group of abject losers who are the lowest of the low in every conceivable metric for several decades as a nation? and now also the lowest of the low in the diaspora too?
You have to be a very strong person to still maintain a high collective self-esteem in such dire circumstances when even the educated and wadaad class among you is rotten to the core.
The majority of people want to be part of the winning team, and if they happen to be on the losing side you will see the manifestations of self-hate and low-self esteem that @Finesse outlined.
"And verily this Ummah of yours is one Ummah and I am your Lord and Cherisher, therefore fear Me and no other." (Quran 23:52)"
