Where I talk about political social existential-intellections, I’m sorry,
When addressing the Americans, the British or the Western nations,
In that I make an imperative dis-entangling identification
Of 1) the governments that check and creep,
Supposedly representing you in its grip;
2) The mainstream media that drive subtle
Propaganda tanks for it, allowing only banks and
Powers with vested interests speak
In precise, shock and awe, droning bullet points; –
And 3) you – a pawn in their efficient ‘Venus’-fly by war machine.
Forgive me, but you must see what I mean.
To me, you and we are prime
Co-citizens of the world, post-nationalist,
Saluting the ethical life,
Well meaning until you die.
That’s why I write to you.
Please think. Don’t waste your breath in life
Actioning out their lies.
For the sake of Love, I love you.
Until I die.

 ‘Jihad’ actually means ‘struggle’. As in how you would struggle to do good, to score highly in exams, to keep to a deadline, to be kind to annoying and difficult peoples… you get the idea. ‘Struggling to do good for the sake of God’ is the worthiest struggle.
 ‘truth’ is anything that is true, as you know. In Old English ‘triewe’ means “faithful, trustworthy.” In Arabic, ‘haqq’ means ‘truth’ too. ‘Al Haqq’, literally means ‘The Truth’. And is also one of the Ninety Nine Names of God.
 ‘Al Wadud’ means the ‘All Loving’ or ‘Love’. And it is one of the Ninety Nine Names of God.
