Every nation has its own language and style. Alphabets, shapes, symbols define nations in a way. Tribes and people in a country, large communities that speak the same language have both the same and separate languages. There are about ten thousand languages spoken actively. Most of them are local. The universal is limited.
We chat with young people from Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger and other countries. There are many different languages ​​in each of these countries. Only one of these is over sixty. The majority of the country's population is Muslim. 75% of Burkina Faso is Muslim. 15% of the country's population is Christian and they rule the country. The official language of the country is French. This goes for Mali and other countries. Latin alphabet prevails. French is an upper language and a result of imperial siege and oppression, occupation.
Muslims do not particularly aspire to governance. Because the prominent ones are immediately eliminated.
Muslims are very fragmented because they do not acquire the characteristics of being a whole and one nation. This makes them lonely. However, the spiritual languages ​​of Muslims are common. The way of life of these young people coming from different countries has almost in common with our culture. Worship, traditions and lifestyles. As we listen to them, it is almost the same as what we had in childhood.
The Islamic nation has a spiritual common language. We see this most during the pilgrimage. The spiritual bond is much more sincere and sincere. While chatting with the young people who come to us, a very sincere atmosphere occurs. There is heartfelt togetherness. The different reflections of this spiritual attachment; either we are witnessing ourselves or what we have learned shows how powerful it is. My son, who went to Malaysia for a month, had emotional moments when he returned. There's been a sad breakup. This spiritual language is about the closeness of every nation.
The spiritual ties of the Islamic nation are much stronger. Because there is worship partnership. No believer is selfish in this heart and spiritual union. Every believer in this world is the prayer of each other.
In Cahit Zarifoğlu's Seven Beautiful Men poems, when Muslims start praying, the direction of the ears lies in the direction of the breeze in the wheat fields from east to west. With the prayer started from the east, prostration is reached in the form of waves towards the west. This is the real and common language of Muslims. It's valid for all worship.
Although the spoken language of Muslims from the east to the west is different; it never sets them apart.
Imperialism brings communities together.
Islam unites especially Muslims. Unfortunately, when race and tribalism turn into an ideology, Islam becomes a structure that breaks down the integrity of the nation. Why a Muslim cannot or cannot tolerate the language of another brother. He/she makes his tribe's language superior and makes it an official tool? Playing with people's natural state is disrupting their physiological spirit. Without the integrity of the alphabet, there is no integrity of the nation.
There are reflections in the common language of the Islamic nation and a poetry call that gains a feature of a higher language. Every Muslim poet tells, writes or poems in his own language. Arabic, Turkish, Persian, Urdu, Kurdish, Bosnian, Muslims in the language they have written every poem of the poem of the Islamic nation. It creates a strong spirit with spiritual upper language combination. What separates Muslims from other nations is their integrity and affiliation. Muslims have a Ka'aba, all Muslims face there.
Every believer who is a Muslim is a saint. Race is just a difference. No race is superior to the other. Superiority is in spiritual attachment. It is not a person who determines it.
