The real meaning of Khalifah is the Vicegerent or representaive of Allah on earth not a political leader. Adam (pbuh), the first human was given this responsibility by Almighty Allah and we, as a human race, are now failing miserably. Before we bombed, kill, behead, occupy, exploit and starve other people in the name of democracy, peace or law and order, we need to straighten up and deal with the earth. We can find a cure for Ebola, bring back sanity and peace if we would just stop being so bigoted and narrow minded. look at this tragedy we are facing in the north, just like our fellow human beings around the world, animals are being made refugees!!!
Look at 35, 000 walruses coming ashore and trapped at Point Lay, Alaska, right now! There is not enough sea ice to sustain them so they’re stuck on the shore.” SubhaanAllah, do we think that we are not next?
