I find it absurd that there are American Muslims debating the use of English in the Masjid. Who is the spokesperson for the American Muslims? Have we moved so far away from sanity that we don't even care to understand what is said in the Jumu'ah; more importantly, with language there is an element of culture that comes with it. There are many muslims (African-Americans) that believe the sunnah, the way of the prophet (s), means to follow, literally, the way of the prophet; without really examining the principles that are prescribed. To implement totally the Arabic language in Jumu'ah or the masjid period would ultimately mean to implement an Arab psyche/psychology....regardless how much Arabic is learn'd, if one cannot THINK, one will still remain in the primitive ages. If one is born of Arabic speaking parents, one should learn there language to instill a knowledge of self; but, to think it's an obligation from God, only instills more spookism to the faith!

I may have express'd this thought before, but I'm wanting to spend more time alone. I'm finding a comfort with my own self.
