Sample appeal letter for use of Muslims in North America PDF Print E-mail

January 20, 1997

His Excellency, Dato Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad,
The Prime Minister of Malaysia,
Jalan Dato Onn, 50502 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

An appeal to Dr. Mahathir
to lead and unite the Muslim world into one Voice

Your Excellency,
Assalamo-Alaikum. May Allah bless you with excellent health, long life and happiness. First of all, the Muslims of North America extend their congratulations to you on being awarded The 1997 King Faisal International Prize for Service to Islam. Your Excellency, the Muslim world, that once possessed honor, dignity, power and grandeur, during the time of Al-Khulafa  Ar-Rashidun, has sunk in despair at this critical juncture in history. Sadly, we are doing nothing but watching the decay. Dr. Iqbal observed :   

Who were they ?
 They were your fathers,  but who are you ?
Sitting snug with hands down,
 serenely waiting for to-morrow.

The Bosnian tragedy still haunts us. The Muslim world's neglect is giving Russians a chance to slip back into the new Muslim countries of Central Asia. Palestinians, Kashmiris, Iraqis and Algerians, find no end in sight for their suffering. Chechens have attained some freedom, but their country lies in ruins. Afghan's  situation is so sad that one feels like crying for these brave people, who put an end to the Soviet Empire. We should not blame the West for these tragedies but rather ourselves. Our wounds are self-inflicted. The Khurds, Algerians, Sunnis and Shias are killing each other, thus exemplifying the inhumanity of Muslim to Muslim. Only a leader like you can stop this madness that is consuming the Muslims. Dr. Iqbal wrote :

   Sure enough, you can claim to be
Syeds or Mirzas or Afghans;
   You are everything, but tell me,
can you claim to be Muslims ?

Was Abu Bakr (R) a Sunni?  Was Ali (R) a Shia? No, both were Muslims. The distinctions are made by us, the faulty Muslims. Your Excellency, even now, we can achieve glory, but only if we have a leader like you, who can enlighten these lost souls and turn them all into a model Muslim community. Iqbal said :

   Ah, but if the faith of Abraham
once again would become alive,
   The flames of tyranny can turn
into a flower garden by a miracle.

Your Excellency, God has blessed the Muslim countries with two-third of the world's energy resources, and twenty five percent of the human resources. The oil-crisis of 1973 gave the Muslim world an immense  financial power, but , to the delight of the West, all was wasted in two Gulf wars. If a gutsy Muslim leader was available at the time, then he could have helped to avoid the senseless wars and possibly have saved the Muslim assets. We know God  has blessed you with-a desire to lift up those in need, the respect in the world community, a long and enviable track record, the organizational abilities to tackle problems and the strength to persuade people with diverse opinions in a serene manner. We understand that your primary responsibility is to your country; but, in order to develop economic and human resources, Malaysia became an active and a leading member of many Regional and International Organizations. Similarly, your leadership role in the Muslim world will open many new economic markets and opportunities for the dynamic Malaysia, resulting in a tremendous benefit not only for all Malaysians, but the entire Muslim community. Therefore, we most respectfully ask your Excellency to please accept our request to lead and unite the Muslim countries into ONE VOICE at the United Nations, in order to defend the Muslim causes, effectively, persistently and consistently. We hope that President Soeharto and Sultan of Brunei will support and help you in every way, in a triangular framework, so that a son of the Southeast Asian Muslim Community can lead the entire Muslim world to UNITY. May God bless you and your family.       
Yours sincerely,
