Greetings to all in the name of Jah Lion and Lamb. Greetings in the name of the King of kings and the peace of His Christ, Yeshua Ha’Moshiyach, Getachin Iyesus Kristos, be to all in this world and in the world coming.
Melek Media House have checked the stats and since the advent of this year’s Ramadan, we would like to extend another word of peaceful conversation with the Muslim Africans of Ethiopia and greater Africa who are interested or curious in Rastafari during the month of Ramadan.
Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? Isaiah 58:6
A lot of interest in this site has been generated by ones looking at InI articles “Muslim Rastafarian: Islam VS the teachings of His Majesty Intro”. Growing in grace and in overstanding, we have constantly searched for a way to continue this topic in the hope that we as Rastafari can appeal to the conscience of Ethiopian Muslims and those who reside in “Greater Ethiopia” (those borders extending the breadth of the Nile and its coasts). As the Prophet said, Muslims should see that Ethiopia is left in peace. His Majesty appealed to Mohammedans in England with the Quranic mandate to do so. Ones would be wise to heed it.
‘A Sudanese Christian woman called Mariam Yehya Ibrahim has been captured and imprisoned for her faith and threatened to be killed under Shariah law – ‘Ms Ibrahim, born in eastern Sudan’s Gedaref state on November 3, 1987, is the daughter of a Sudanese Muslim father and an Ethiopian Orthodox Christian mother, according to a statement from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Khartoum.’
Boko Haram is kidnapping Christian Nigerians girls. Al Shebab blew up a mall in Kenya, and Christian pastors and priests are being killed in inter-religious violence in Tanzania. Africa-wide there are numerous examples of ‘Islamo-fascism’ growing support. Rastafari wish to invite ones to open their eyes and ears and recognise the gravity of the current situation for African Christians in the areas around our beloved Ethiopia. We pray Zion will become a prosperous refuge for the spiritually persecuted once again.
We do not wish to provoke unrest regarding the political intentions of Ethiopian Muslims. His Majesty stands for equality – under His Law – stating “Religion is personal… the State is for all”. MMH wish to address a key word-sound of H.I.M Qedemawi Haile Selassie I and resound it across the world, especially across Africa:
To the Muslim world, it is sufficient to repeat the words of the Prophet: “Ethiopia, a hospitable nation, should remain free and independent. Woe betide him who molests her”
