This week on the Raw Islam Podcast with Imam Azhar Subedar the show opens with the Imam asking B.C. Dodge if he knows what the “Chinese Drywall” issue that happened in Florida is. The Imam goes on to explain that during the housing boom in Florida the goal was to get houses up as quickly and cheaply as one could get them up. This lead contractors to use substandard drywall. Thus after a few years houses built with this specific drywall started to emit toxins and ruin the houses, the only fix was to gut the houses and start over.
Given this issue, a person can build a 10 Million dollar home, but if they used substandard materials the house would be worthless and would have to be torn apart and rebuilt – this house which is supposed to be a source of happiness, now becomes a burden and essentially worthless.
But what does Chinese Drywall have to do with us?
It is very easy for someone to make a claim, and use that claim to tare people and groups apart. But we – as thinking and learning adults – must learn to gut these claims and remove the root of the problem.
If you had one of these homes in Florida that used this drywall, and you called your insurance company they would want to come out and test to make sure that you actually have this issue, just making a claim does not get them to write you a check. And this is how we should treat those that claim to experts on Islam and the Alternative Facts they spew on what Muslims truly believe.
With all that said, Imam Azhar asks the question, based on events in Port Charlotte, Florida – Should a Supervisor of Elections, who is not Muslims, be giving a lecture entitled “History of Radical Islam”?
