On rituals:

To be honest,the debate is now shifting towards the main commands like patience,truthfulness,justice,good works and a relationship with the Lord that is strictly personal and sincere.

Things like Salat,hajj,sawm are less of a priority to those who seek their Lord for a sincere relationship.

What was happening for the past two decades is people playing with multi meanings words of GOD and arriving at different confusing outcomes..
Words like Salat,Zakat,Hajj,Sawm,Sujud etc that GOD in His wisdom has put there to distinguish and bring out the true convictions of those who say they believe.
GOD has also been true to His word by sending messengers to clarify certain rights and put more fitna into the mix.

For me these type of subjects have now become irrelevant now.

The main subject of importance and priority is to acquire “taqwa” to overcome the worldly desires and to clean oneself from hate,discrimination,arrogance…LOVE GOD AND LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR!
Just my thoughts.
Oh and some verses that come to mind:
3:8
“Our Lord, let not our hearts waver, now that You have guided us. Shower us with Your mercy; You are the Grantor.
رَبَّنا لا تُزِغ قُلوبَنا بَعدَ إِذ هَدَيتَنا وَهَب لَنا مِن لَدُنكَ رَحمَةً إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الوَهّابُ

3:16
They say, “Our Lord, we have believed, so forgive us our sins, and spare us the agony of the hellfire.”
الَّذينَ يَقولونَ رَبَّنا إِنَّنا ءامَنّا فَاغفِر لَنا ذُنوبَنا وَقِنا عَذابَ النّارِ
3:17
They are steadfast, truthful, submitting, charitable, and repenters at dawn.
الصّٰبِرينَ وَالصّٰدِقينَ وَالقٰنِتينَ وَالمُنفِقينَ وَالمُستَغفِرينَ بِالأَسحارِ

On peaceful mind( Muslim to GOD):

Eventually,when your mind is healed/freed/at peace,you will feel completely free from hate,Jealousy,gossip,anger,tit for tat chat,revenge,…etc
Your mind will be lifted by GOD towards bliss to encounter love towards GOD Alone,then it will resonate/translate this love towards  all His creatures.

What a wonderful feeling.All around you will start to benefit from the new you,your family,friends ,enemies and yourself of course.

You will find the purpose of your life is independent of all others,only dependent on your creator.

You will start to concentrate on your thoughts and actions ,trying your best to do to others what you would like to see done to you.All people will be as though they are your family ( Your Mum,Dad,Brother,Sister,Uncle,Aunt…).

Of course ,as a human,there will be moments when we step out of GOD s realm, GOD then will give you a push back as a reminder. Acknowledging ,repenting and going back to the realm will save you again and so on….
Or take no notice if you wish to remain independent of GOD,but the disease will take over again.

Muslim to GOD is a “great jihad” against oneself only,if only each one of us realises and takes up this special and private relationship with GOD Alone. The true feeling of happiness .

On all other sects/religions:

I am sure with all our differences ,providing we accept each other as we are, there must be hope that  at least we can live in peace with each other.
So what if your fellow human went to a synagogue,or prayed in a church,or went to a temple or did a congregation prayer behind a man or a woman or…

. If they stop their wars,aggression,lording it above each other,fighting each other,hating each other,gossiping,back biting,ridiculing,claiming their religion is the truth…etc

You never know,just may be , now or in 100 years or so… GOD Alone will unite them?

On priorities:

The number one priority ,the top of any list must be the uniting factor-GOD Alone,our Creator,all of us humans-

Now, GOD places Justice,fairness and good intentions as the most important part of His system. We seem to always concentrate on the trivial matters that are personal and can be overlooked by GOD if we have the right intentions.

Among the many books of religions out there, very few deal with the subject of “justice,fairness and good intentions”i.e the attitude of our mind towards GOD s system to keep the balance for all GOD s creatures.
The most important useful analysis for any human including “Muslims” is to deal with this utmost priority,the attitude of mind towards the one GOD and His just system must be top of the list. Everything else will then follow with GOD s guidance and trust.
My thoughts.
