I thought Trump did very well by continuing with the Iftar tradition at the White House. He could have delegated to
Mike Pence. Or worse, cancel it. But he sounded quite civil, pragmatic and even presidential.
We Muslims should look in the mirror and ask what have we done for our country (USA)? How do we win more Nobel prizes, bring in
more gold medals and world cups, hold more key government positions in and around the administration, legislative
and judicial branches, do more inventions and technological breakthroughs, etc?
We have made good progress. Lets keep working on these metrics in the USA. For rest of the Umma, provide intellectual leadership
to stop the internal bleeding, infighting and increase compassion for each other. We can do it.
Key takeaway: Introspect and improve inshAllah.
