Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad on Group Identity

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad said, “We, Muslims, do a pretty good job of turning ourselves into a badge of identity, a stick with which to beat other Muslims, ways of feeling good about ourselves - all kinds of things that we use the sunnah for.  But to use it as a human form that represents liberation from the modern prison is generally not the way that we consider it, unfortunately.  Often, it is just another huzhuzh an-nafs, what the ego desires.”
