ISLAMOPHOBIA Vs FEAR OF ALLAH
Islamophobia is a closed minded prejudice and hatred against Islam.But Is Islamophobia real?I mean do the people really have to fear muslims?A very short message to the people who overlook the guidance of Allah and discard Islam as a terroristic group full of hatred.Take One thought on this,forgetting what media has fed you till now.
This is the Place on Earth that records the largest crowd at any moment.
- This is the picture of Mecca. The picture of mecaa actually pictures the muslims in action.It depicts peace.The serenity and the aura of mecca is matchless.The black stone you are seeing in the centre is the Ka’aba around which the muslims are circumblating.People in millions are present here 24×7, 365×infinity.
- This is the place that never sleeps.The circumblation around Ka’aba never stops except during the prayer.
When azaan is called people assemble in neat rows,all in one direction and fall in prostration before their Lord to whom they are going to return.
- Islam means submission.Submission to the “will of God”.
- People in millions present themselves to the house of Allah,”k’aaba”during hajj.And when you see the numbers you would feel that you stand nowhere.Allah doesn’t needs our prayer.It is we who need Allah.
- And what do they do there?If muslims are violent then why do mecca not record a single speech of violence,a single foul play or immoral acts?There is no distinguishion on the basis of colour,ethenicity,status ,power or money.There is no violence,no immoral acts,no trading,no foul speech and no signs of injustice.They pray for others and they ask for forgiveness.
- They greet the fellow muslims with the greetings”salam” which means “peace on you” and extend help to each other .
- Islam as depicted by media is not violence.Everyday you are made to think bad of Islam because of a handful of bad people or because of media,but if someone acknowledges that he may die any moment, he may disappear from earth at any moment he would like to know what Islam is.
- The vast majority of Muslims are moderate, pious people who suffer more from terrorism and violence than non-Muslims. Ninety-three percent of Muslims do not support extremist views of terrorism. live as they wish. The media has sensationalized the views of a small percentage of violent extremists as the legitimate understanding of Islam as a community seeking global domination by force.
What is Islam?
Islam is the acceptance that there is no God but Allah, who has no idols, no picture and no partner.He alone is the creator and sustainer of the world and to him we shall return. Prophet Muhammad is the messenger of Allah who taught us the way of life.
Say, “He is Allah , [who is] One,
Allah , the Eternal Refuge.
He neither begets nor is born,
Nor is there to Him any equivalent.”
In the Quran, Allah defines that the only purpose for which He created mankind is to Worship Him. Islam recognizes that humankind has free choice in whether to obey or disobey God, but ultimately we will be held accountable to God in the next life for the choices that we make in this life.This concept is found in all major religion Concept of God in Major Religions.
Islam is acknowledgement of the immorality of men and return to their final abode after resurection.Although the concept of resurrection is present in all religion but Islam being the last and the final religion pours the story of the old,the unseen and the unknown to people so that they mend their ways.The holy text of all religions are distorted except that of Islam.And It is called Quran.Quran promises heaven to the believers and asks the disbelievers to take the challenge to produce a single surah like that of Quran.In his book QURAN,Allah addresses the humanity at large,to use his intellectual reasoning, critical thinking, and to reflect on the verses of his book.as a means to not only reinforce the faith of the believers but also to call non-believers to ponder about the authenticity of Islam as the way of life for the humanity at large.
O mankind, indeed the promise of Allah is truth, so let not the worldly life delude you and be not deceived about Allah by the Deceiver.(35:5)
The acts of muslims,the extremists,or even the religious scholars do not define Islam.Islam is defined by Quran.If anyone is to be followed by a muslim is the prophet-Prophet Muhammad(pbuh).Prophet Muhammad was sent as a mercy to this world and he will remain as a role model of muslims till eternity.
So dear Islamophobes,Islamophobia is bias.Take Islam as a religion that fears its creator.And in no manner does a muslim you find in your newspaper or a community define Islam.
