Hizmet or Cemaat?

According to the classification of Donmez[i], there are two parts of this social movement.

The first part is the oblivious positive majority, and the second part is the obvious negative minority. I decided to list the properties of each part and give a definition for each part; I divided this social movement into two. I gave the first part the name “Hizmet” and the second part the name “Cemaat.” Below is the result of this dichotomization.

Hizmet is the victim of Turkey and “Turkey’fication.” Hizmet is not Cemaat, and Cemaat is not Hizmet. Cemaat is the leech, parasite, and bloodsucker of Hizmet. This social movement is in the process of division and divergence into two unmixable and opposite parts: Hizmet and Cemaat.

Hizmet is living for and with others, and Cemaat is living on and by others. Cemaat and Hizmet are like two sons of Adam – Cain and Abel. Cemaat is the politics, and Hizmet is above and beyond politics.

Hizmet is about crying with and for others, and Cemaat is about using tears as a screen and cover for their own dirt.

Hizmet is sincerity, and Cemaat is hypocrisy.

Hizmet is every individual, and Cemaat is the hierarchy. Hizmet is the love of service, and Cemaat is the lust of power.

Hizmet is the anonymity of good and clean, Cemaat is the authority of bad, evil, and dirty.

 Hizmet is about the audit, Cemaat is about hiding.

Hizmet is about a clear written constitution, Cemaat is about oral mythology. Hizmet is the process of betterment, and Cemaat is the claim of betterness.

Hizmet is about improvement, Cemaat is about assessment.

Hizmet is about being obvious and living obviously, and Cemaat is about being oblivious and living obliviously.

Hizmet is about respecting others, Cemaat is about rejecting others. Hizmet is about verification, Cemaat is about falsification.

Hizmet is the window to understand others, Cemaat is the mirror to forget others and drown in oneself.

“8:29. O you who believe! If you keep from disobedience to God in reverence for Him and piety to deserve His protection, He will make a criterion for you (in your hearts to distinguish between truth and falsehood, and right and wrong) and blot out from you your evil deeds, and forgive you. God is of tremendous grace and bounty.” [iii]

“8:37. Thus does God separate the corrupt from the pure, and make all those who are corrupt into a pile one upon another, and then place them in Hell. Those are indeed the losers.” [iv]

The division, distinction, differentiation, and dichotomization between Hizmet and Cemaat started, and it is happening now. Hizmet can live and will live without Cemaat.

However, Cemaat cannot live, and it will die without Hizmet because Cemaat is the parasitic structure of witless and gutless vultures of the oligarchy that feed on the carrion of quasi- hierarchy and pseudo-authority.

2:111 … Say: “Produce your proof if you are truthful!” [v]

25:30. And the Messenger says: “My Lord! Surely my people have made this Qur’an something worthy of no attention.” [vi]

  1. "Hizmet is about accountability and decentralization, Cemaat is about unaccountability and centralization."

    That's the only criteria people need to understand and implement. Besides, I have high expectations for the author's JFCK approach and its effects on people in the near future.

    PS: Hizmet is signal, Cemaat is noise. No, this must be: "Hizmet is Signal, Cemaat is ByLock" :) Another way of saying "Hizmet is transparency, Cemaat is opacity."
