Well, as the saying goes: "Islam is the best religion, but it has the worst of followers"

I find it very interesting that if someone says they are spiritual or religious there is a good chance they are not spiritual or spiritual religious. Even when people call themselves a sinner it may not be coming from a position of ikhlās, it may be done to appear “spiritual”. Here is a video by Sheikh Sekaleshfar on Ikhlās which is very important to watch before the coming blessed month of Ramadan.

I agree this is wrong, one should give da’wāh to others (be they muslim or otherwise) with best of akhlaq, remembering one’s own faults and with absolute humility.
“Do not turn your cheek disdainfully from the people, and do not walk exultantly on the earth. Indeed Allah does not like any swaggering braggart.” (31:18)

On the other side of the spectrum we have the “don’t judge” crowd. They will be openly doing and promoting harām and as soon as someone performs the furūʿ al-dīn duty of al-amr bi-l-maʿrūf wa-n-nahy ʿani-l-munkar they will say “don’t judge”.

“Whoever among you sees evil, let him change it with his hand. If he is unable to do so, then with his tongue. If he is unable to do so, then with his heart, and that is the weakest level of faith.”

They read a few books and think that they know everything. They hold a tasbeeh in their hands and care about them appearing religious. They always start picking on the fault of other Muslims who appear to be "less religious". They criticize many scholars simply cos those scholars hold different opinions to them. They feel as if the ummah needs them so badly. They exaggerate their few good deeds and always ignore the good others do. They are quick to always question the intentions of others who want to do something good, but they feel everything they do is qurbatan ilalah. They just hang around with the religious crowd and hesitate to approach those Muslims who may not appear to be as "religious". They believe that only their scholars and marajas are the ones that are on truth. They hesitate to go to religious gathering where people of "their kind" are not present. They always have to share their opinion but don't like it if others share their opinion. They always feel the need to be the ones leading prayers and think no one else is deserving to lead prayers. They genuinely believe that they are doing some sort of favor by their efforts. 

Brothers and sisters, a true Muslim is the one who is humble, the one who treats others with respect and dignity behind closed doors. The true Muslims are those who hide every good deed that they do, but eventually it leaks out to the world. But those who desperately try to show the world their greatness, they are the arrogant ones.

May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) protect us from arrogance, where on the day of judgment, only having a pure soul matters. 

 

Preach.

I could write all day about this issue

Unfortunately the Muslim community today have too much pride and arrogance. Especially when it comes to Saada, it really pisses me off why they view themselves so high just because they are a direct descendant of the Prophet (sawas). Its disgusting and I remember making a thread similar to this a while ago, how alot of people claim themselves to be 'believers', when there is literally a guideline from Imam Ali (عليه السلام) for becoming a believer and unfortunately most of us (including myself) don't adhere to it, yet they have the audacity to come and shame others for not being like 'them'. 

Its really sad.

May Allah guide us all on the right path.

Salaam,

Üjb is definitely something dislikeable, and the true muttaqīn are always humble, but where lies the harm in doing one's duty of amr bil mā'rūf wā nahī anil munkar?
