Dear Sheikh Hamza Yusuf and Sheikh Abdal Hakim Murad,
I am currently contemplating attending your annual RIHLA event this year in Malaysia. However, last year when it was held in Turkey it seamed to have occurred in the midst of a military coup and revolution. What if the same thing happens again in Malaysia this year if you guys show up? Malaysia is a country that hates war-mongering, ‘whores of Babylon’ like George W. Bush with war criminal status – as defined by the International Criminal Court in Malaysia, whereas, it seems, from past behaviour, that Sheikh Hamza Yusuf would gladly firmly shake Bush’s hands and clap wholeheartedly to his fake “war on terror” rhetoric. From a purely logical perspective, would it not be self-defeating to hold a RIHLA event in a country that opposes your extremely unethical and anti-Islamic viewpoint? “Either you’re with Bush ass-kissing, or you’re with the good guys” – that rhetoric came straight from the ass’s mouth. You must make your decision now, as you can’t have it both ways. We all know we’re living in a double-think Orwellian society, but that sort of “now you’re with us, now you’re not” magic trick/conflicting behaviour of yours is off-the-scale Orwellian, like constantly walking around with your head up your ass.
Please forgive this viewpoint if it sounds rather unrefined like how a mythical Chinese monkey-god might speak to the royal emperor with no clothes, but we don’t have your superior intellect and education – which usually bores laypeople to death with verbal bullcrap by never getting straight to the point – much like the infamous behaviour of folks at N.A.S.A (aka “Never A Straight Answer”). I’m simply trying to determine “value for money”, as I’m familiar with the book by Islamic scholar Ahmad Thomson entitled “Dajjal” – a story about “the king who has no clothes”, aka the one-eyed anti-Christ beast system. Sheikh Thomson suggests that scholars who charge fake money for knowledge – which should be given out for free, are only educating people to the extent of what they’re paying for – i.e. fake bullcrap. He suggests that putting a price tag on the word of God is a wrong thing to do. That’s why I, and many Muslims appreciate the fact that some of the RIHLA lectures are streamed live on Livestream, to be watched free of charge. However, the male Islamic scholars seem to have a weird fascination with how many hair clips women should be allowed to wear in their headscarves. In one RIHLA session, this debate went on for practically ages when I last watch the Rihla livestream – 2016 event. Surely with all the major wars of aggression on many Muslim countries, top Islamic scholars should have more of a backbone to speak about more serious “halal or haram” issues? Otherwise many may assume RIHLA is an acronym for “Religious Indoctrination Heralding Lasting Apathy”, which I’m sure was never your intention when you first designed the intensive study course.
In this age of information (via Google – if at first your sheikh kisses Bush’s butt, try, try again with a little help from Google – as your faithful monster friend), ignorance is a choice, so is it really cost effective to require students to go on what is effectively just a package holiday with pompous so-called Shiekhs, who love the sound of their own voices, and can’t even be bothered to do a multimedia presentation to make things a lot less boring for the students? If I were assessing you guys purely on teaching methods alone, you’d fail miserably – simply for using the worst teaching techniques that even hard-line proponent’s of “student’s should be seen and not heard” teachers of the Victorian era would shy away from with repulsion. If you behaved anything like the teacher from the musical movie “School of Rock”, I would personally travel to Malaysia just to kiss your smelly feet in adoration, but instead you put on the longest Sheikh flashy outfits you can find, and walk around with a show of arrogance that only pharaohs of ancient Egyptian times would have admired, or emperors with no clothes in children’s fairy-tale books.
I should be grateful for your early reply to my concerns, as they are held by many Muslims too – like practically every Muslim with any moral, ethical discernment at all. It would be good of you to also reply to the letter of serious concern we wrote to you many moons ago (link here), as we have not yet heard a reply – possibly due to your top scholars having a weird obsessive compulsion disorder (OCD) tendency to focus on women’s headscarf hairclips as somehow being a major issue, at the expense of focusing on anything important at all – such as all the major frickin’ false-flag events since 9/11 wrongly blamed on Muslims.
Thank you for your consideration on the above matters of concern to the entire Muslim Ummah, and to mere mortal individuals such as me. But please don’t let me take you (- oh mighty wise one Hamza Yusuf) away from your Bush ass-kissing if you think it to be more conducive to your mentality, and Abdal Hakim Murad you can continue to write more articles for the BBC propaganda machine – about how all 9/11 truthers are like moon-landing nut “conspiracy theorists”, as I wouldn’t want to take you away from your FBI/CIA controlled cognitive dissonance and brainwashing. Please don’t mind me, carry on doing what you secretly love doing. As the song goes: Happy RIHLA, Happy RIHLA but I think I’ll miss this one this year… that’s unless you pay me, as Dr. Evil might say, “One Million Dollars…Woahhhhhhahhhh!! Yeah, and even then I’d still not go! Oh what excitement. Yippee, another frickin’ RIHLA event this year. Prepare the countdown machine: 10, 9, 8, 7….on second thoughts, forget it, it’s not worth it, we’d frickin rather watch frickin’ paint dry in our frickin’ living rooms! Now I feel like singing a Taylor Swift song “Sheikh it off!”, or an Eminem song “I’m a Soldier” – ’cause God-fearing soldiers stand up to so much, they’ll never fault or flounder – soldiers of God that is – not fickle fake sheikh pussy twats that only pussy grabbers like Trump would adore.
Rihla Summer Program | Malaysia 2017
JULY 15 TO AUGUST 7
The Rihla Experience
For over 15 years, the Rihla programs have been refined to provide the optimum student experience. Students today will benefit, God-willing, from a program that balances classroom education, group study, devotional practices and focused site visitations. Our goal is to deliver a holistic experience to all participants where they each return home with a renewed sense of purpose and direction.
The main objective of the Rihla curriculum is to provide students with knowledge that is both a religious duty for each Muslim to learn (fard ‘ayn) and immediately applicable in life. Along with the obligatory sciences, students will also be given the foundations of spiritual excellence, so they may direct themselves towards God more completely through developing the internal states leading to sincerity.
