Hello abdusalam,

If you are a Libyan, you could very well be an Amazigh. I believe there are many Amazighs fighting to throw off the yoke of Arab/Hijazi imperialism. I believe Amazighs also have their own language.

The take over of Africa by Arabs and conversion to Islam resulted in the wholesale destruction of the existing cuture. You can't really be proud of what your country suffered unless you consider yourself a descendant of the conquering Arabs (like many Pakistanis do).

What if dhimmi no more is not an Arab? Can a non-Arab not understand the language? If that is your case why do Muslims do dawa as a non-Arab will never be able to practice Islam without understanding the language of Allah.

Regards

Plato
