George Galloway comes to the MCA-part 1

Bismillah i rahmaan i raheem.

“I fear God only”, “inshAllah”, “mashAllah”, “this Ummah” are not the kind of words you would expect to hear from a politician. Certainly not from a politician, who was elected five times to the British parliament. Certainly not someone who has been banned from Canada for inciting terrorism. Certainly not someone who is a Westerner.

Well, last night at the MCA, with a big smile on his face Mr. George Galloway, the British MP started his speech with the Bismillah, the opening of the Quran.

He then went on to remind us the atrocities committed by an idiot they call Bush in Iraq and Afghanistan.

He also painted some horrific pictures for us of the atrocities meted out to the poor brothers and sisters in Palestine. He said, “Israel used phosphorus on civilians and do you know what it does to a human being…… cooks you from inside! I saw a child that was breathing out white smoke because the phosphorus had penetrated his lungs…it was feeding on the child from within….Another scene I saw was that an infant was pulled from the rubble of a bombed building….. that was still alive but was suckling on the toe of its dead mother for sustenance”. He said that the rest is your imagination and he could not put what is happening there in words. He also pointed out how the Canadian government had branded him a terrorist and banned him from Canada. Check this out.

Although the entire evening was full of great things. I will mention a few that really touched me and provoked some emotions.

Mr. Galloway took some food, aid and medicine into Gaza. It was a well publicized event. He wrote a letter to an influential Prince from an oil-rich Arab Gulf state ,who was in the UK at the time , to aid him in the petrol from the UK to the Gaza strip. He could have said yes and could have given hundreds compared to the billions he waste’s, but he said with a cold heart NO. Galloway said, ” I could tell you who he is but I will not”. When the audience pushed him this is what he had to say, “No, no, no….they are all the same, they will stab you in the back, or they will do it from the front, regardless they are not worth it!” Powerful words indeed. The world is not oblivious to the corruption and wastefulness of the highly-rich-tribal-arrogant Khaleejis and their atrocities. Anyway, something to ponder about. Why can’t they understand this? (I will be writing more about the Khaleejis in an upcoming article inshAllah).

Second moving event of the evening was the fact that George Galloway asked, ” when is maghrib”? A person taking care of the Salah. Hmm this is something the momineen do. Where are we with regards to our salah?

Since we were not allowed to ask direct questions, we had to write them on a piece of paper and pass it to the ushers. My question was “Mr. Galloway, you are so initmate with Muslims and love them and work for them and their causes even more then our leaders, I find it hard to imagine you are not a Muslim. What is stopping you Mr. Galloway from doing the right thing and becoming a Muslim?” The question was never answered because the person who it was handed to,  was screening out questions only related to Palestine or I dare say “to thier agenda”.

I could not let go of my question. And prayed to Allah, O Allah make him amongst the Muslimeen. A friend of mine went and talked to Mr. Galloway after the event and asked him, ” Are you a muslim, Sir?” He answered, ” I AM A MUSLIM! I am married to a muslim”.

This makes me so happy. Wallah u alam. May Allah Guide us and help our brothers and sisters. Also, may He destroy our leaders who do not have the guts to say the right thing.

UPDATE: Br Zahid has put up the mp3 on his website. You can download it by going to here. JazakAllah khair to br Zahid.

    I was there at the event and thought that it was the best event I have ever been to in my 7 years living in the bay area.

    He was amazing to listen to, he seems to be very articulate in his thought process and unlike others, he was considerate of the time and didn’t take more than 1 Hour 15 minutes to convey his message (includeing the Q&A).

    Once I convert his speech I recorded to mp3, I will upload it to my blog. Its nice to know he is a Muslim, it wouldn’t affect me even if he wasn’t because a man his known by how he treats others and he is exceptional in that sense.

    JazakAllah khair Br Zahid, I am waiting and checking your blog literally everyday for that recording. Please keep me posted! 🙂

    I would humbly disagree with you Br Zahid, it makes a huge difference if he becomes Muslim or not. We see from the Seerah of the Prophet(SAW) that he invited all the Roman and Persian kings of his times to Islam. Imagine the impact they would have on the people. So this is important. Wallah u alam
