Unity Prayer

labeedFor the first time in Kuwait’s history, both Sunni and Shiite Kuwaitis prayed together behind one Imam in the aftermath of the Imam Al- Sadiq Mosque explosion. It was a prayer that expressed a national Kuwaiti epic image following a treacherous tragic incident that claimed the lives of young and old citizens as well as two Indians. I will not take any sides towards Sunnis or Shiites.

Today, I beg my dear readers to take the side of Kuwait and His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al- Ahmad Al-Sabah who truly succeeded in steering Kuwait’s ship through the wildest waves and challenges.

I am talking about this unique Kuwaiti mix of fine aromas that has never known sectarianism or arrogance. This mix was always based on agreement, tolerance and love between fellow citizens under one flag. Kuwait has been known for this unique mixture and both Arab and foreign decision makers should follow in its steps and make use of it in facing similar difficulties, because they have been suffering from the same terrorism and extremism, from the same misleading ideas and the brainwashing of youths’ minds with false promises claiming that such terrorist acts are doorways to heaven.

Such shameful barbaric acts have only increased Islam antagonism because it is becoming a threat to some other religions. Yes, indeed

. Other countries that suffer from sectarian or religious differences should encourage more tolerance and accept diversity without excluding or alienating others. Shiites and Sunnis are brothers and followers of the same religion. The same applies to Muslims and other fellow human beings following other religions because Islam compels Muslims to respect other great prophets and their religions.

We should stop listening to war propagandists and those promoting proxy wars all through the last century. Some people have been planning for hundreds of years to destroy Muslim and Arab identities in order to achieve long term destruction and regional control. Some people are paying billions purchasing weapons and bombed vehicles to help realize dreadful dreams of changing the map.

A final word must be said about the two Indians killed in the explosion while performing the Friday prayers. This only reflects how deep Kuwaiti-Indian relations have been and will be. It is indeed that Kuwaiti mixture, and your Highness... the Humanity Amir, we are very proudly your people and children.
