How to be a Muslim reformer

Salaam alaikum,

Yeah, we've been bad. Very bad. How dare we neglect this blog after winning the Brass Crescent! :::slaps hand::: But we'll make it up to you starting now.

Here is a wonderful entry from a blog entitled 'Aqoul.

In light of the recent slew of unIslamic reformers, here's a reality check served with humor and wit. How to be a Muslim reformer.

It's all good but here's one part that stuck out for me.

"7. Remember your audience
Don't bother engaging Muslims in a respectful yet frank discussion on how to remain faithful to the Prophet's (alayhi salatu wa salaam) message in our modern, globalized, polarized, terrorized world. You don't even need to talk to Muslims, unless it's to get the extremists frothing at the mouth. Being a true visionary is hard work and requires far too much study, which leaves you hardly any time for gala dinners with pretentious, xenophobic ultra-liberal or ultra-conservative (really, does it matter?) activists who will praise you as a model Muslim making a real difference in the Islamic world."
