    mine is welsh and i know hardly any welsh to speak of. i amm trying to learn it through the net but im not going at it 100%, just doing a bit now and a again. the english actively tried to abolish welsh in the welsh valleys. the english school masters would cane a child speaking welsh and force them to speak english. its all but gone from the valleys now.
    Silures Preserving ones Language is not seen as "Nationalism" in Islam.

    Allah ta'ala tells us in the Quran that he created us and divided us into nations and tribes so that we may know each other. We regard The Languages that exist as a blessing by Allah ta'ala, and do not despise them.

    In my opinion someone who has Lost their Mother Tongue has lost a part of their Lineage ... we have many Asians these days who know nothing about their Nation, let alone their Language ... due to this communication between many relatives especially the elderly ones have been virtually non-existent ... sad in my opinion ...

    as for Heritage that depends what exactly you are talking about.

    Just recently I read that London was Built upon the Blood of Slaves ...

      ill bet there wasnt a country or nation that wasnt built useing slaves up till a couple of hundred years ago. britain under the romans would have been no different.

      There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. 'Good pride' represents our dignity and self-respect. 'Bad pride' is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance.
