anyways, how did your practicals go?
they were a bit tricky yeh..
my last exam is economics on friday- i finish and go home for the world cup opening match
I've got a topic for discussion:
each year in my school, a year 13 guy is selected as the aamir of the muslim community in the school- lead jummahs/organise iftar gathering/represent muslims to school etc.
now they're selecting the aamir for next year, and the current aamir wants me to take up the position as he feels i have good leadership skills (which admittedly no other person in my year really has)
but i have refused cos A) im a bad muslim and dont wanna be a hypocrite B) not a good role-model C) ...i duno
the thing is, a muslim teacher approached me the other day with the same agenda and when i told him my grounds for refusing he said that A) if you do have these qualities and don't use them you will be answerable, and B) leadership's not supposed to be refused. (the opposite to what i thought)
I have categorically said that i wont take it up (i saw one of the signs of the day of judgement soumwere- where the leader is the worst of the people)
but wen selecting an aamir what are the most important qualities?
leadership skills or piety? and what else should an aamir have?
be interested to know your views
Brother Iamtheone: Are there others who are more religious than you? I'm not sure about whether i'd select piety over leadership qualities, perhaps i need to know more. But i do understand the not being a hypocrite part, fully understand that bit.
