Quick to Protest … Slow to Pray

Inspired by the protests (some may call them riots) seen in Sydney a couple of days ago, this image demonstrates the state of much of the Ummah in not only Australia, but indeed right around the world. The mosques are close to deserted for prayers such as Fajr, work is given priority over Jummah, Ramadhan is observed if its suitable on the day, but attendance to an event designed to stir up trouble is guaranteed.

While there are many good and valid reasons to protest outside a US embassy, this event has sadly not been one of them. We simply can not blame a country for the actions of every single one of its citizens. The Sydney protest was a lost cause from the beginning, and there was no clear objective that could have possibly been achieved. The only thing we have to thank these Muslim protesters for is that they have further tarnished the image of Muslims in Australia, and made life harder for those Australian Muslims already struggling to deal with the publics negative perception of Islam.
