Pearls & Gem from Surah Al Hujarat [ Letter 49 : Verses 7 ,8 ] :Respect for Ulama'

Friends ,
Surah Al Hujarat presumably was revealed around 1st or 2nd year post Hijrah ,a short surah dealing mainly with etiquette and good mannerism to be expected in the presence of the messenger of Allah :

"And know that the messenger of Allah is amongst you .If he were to obey you in much of the government ,ye would surely be in trouble ,but Allah hath endeared the faith to you and hath beautified it in your hearts and made disbelief and lewdness and rebellion hateful unto your .Such are they who are the rightly guided .[7] It is a bounty and a grace from Allah ,and Allah is Knower ,Wise .[8]"

That was some 1450 years ago .Now what do we Muslims have ?The Quran ,Hadiths and "descendents" of the Prophet ,the ulama' ,and what kind of nonsensical behavior are we showing towards them ?People who control the press and media ,people in government ,shallow minded unschooled pea brained politicians , 'progressive feminists [ eg Marinaapakahnamadiadah; Sisters in and out of Islam ; try reading  Farish Noor's Other Malaysia]. All  are having a field day " screwing up " the ulama' left ,right and centre .Of course some of the ulama' themselves lend themselves to such behavior .An Ulama likewise has no business '' rounding up all the jinns in Bangi into buses and sending them over the Penang Bridge ".Time is short ,they should be spending all their limited energy and time to think , write ,cajole and motivate this 'sickly ummah of our time' to greater height .No time for 'jinns and jembalangs'.There are already enough jinns from amongst humans .Some of these midget politicians think that ulama' grow on trees ,not so ,especially on Malaysian rubber trees !The sacking and rape of ISTAC's Prof Naguib's some 3 years ago was a blatant example of the meaning of lewdness and stupidity alluded to by Allah in ayat 7 in Surah Al Hujarat .Allahualam .
