21:18 Nay, We fling (send down) the truth (this Qur’an) against the falsehood (disbelief), so it destroys it, and behold, it (falsehood) is vanished
I am speaking as a Muslim who feels gheerah (protective jealousy) for their Deen, their Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and most importantly for my Creator (Allah subhanahu wa ta’aala). Islam does not need me to defend it. It is the Deen that Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala has chosen for all of mankind and He sent down Messengers to convey this Deen to the people. The seal of the Prophets the Last Messenger Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam was chosen for the final message. This message Inshaa’Allah will remain unchanged till Qiyamah (Judgment Day).
There is no new Messenger coming with a new message, whatever Allah subhanahu wa ta’aala wanted to convey to His creation of ins (mankind) and jinn has been conveyed and completed and perfected. Allah the Perfect has Perfected this religion so there is nothing that needs to be added to it or abrogated from it.
5:3 This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.
The beginning is always a good place to start, so lets begin with the advent of Islam. For 13 years Islam was propogated and practiced in Makkah peacefully in spite of the oppression of the people of Makkah on the Muslims. The Muslims suffered at the hands of their brethren they were tortured, humiliated and killed. The oppression was so great that the weak ones fled to Abyssinia and took refuge there. The makkans sent an envoy to Abyssinia and tried to bring them back but the king gave them refuge.
These were poor people what use did the Makkans have with these people? The only issue they had with them was that they spoke about One God. One Creator for all of Mankind.The Makkan society at that time believed in gods by the tons and people from all over used to visit Makkah to worship these gods which translated into money. The Makkans feared that if the belief in One God appealed to people and they worshiped just this One God it would mean an end to their trade and their money making mechanisms. It was never their zealousness for their gods it was always about the money and trade.
Today it is the same story Islam is attacked viciously by people only because its the only religion that has made interest prohibited. Which means losses to the money making institutions as Muslims do not believe in personal loans, credit cards, purchasing cars or utility items on installments. This removes 1.6 Billion of the world population from using any schemes that deal with the interest factor. It also removes 1.6 Billion Muslims from indulging in all Haraam (prohibited) activities like the porn industry, alcohol, the movie industry, gambling and casinos et al. This is a great set back to America who cannot handle 1.6 Billion Muslims not spending on their corrupted businesses.
Make sense people, Muslims who do not do the above mentioned things should be classed as good people and the ones who are involved in all the above mentioned things should be termed as the bad people. The Capitalist World attacks Islam with the likes of Irshad Manji, Amina Wadud and several like them who for their vested interest want to denigrate and demean Islam.
The Makkans oppressed the Prophet to an extent that he had to flee to Medinah. In Medinah the Muslims co existed with the Jews who were then living in Medinah waiting for the final Prophet. The first war that the Muslims fought was the battle of Badr it was against the Makkans (not the Jews) who continued the oppression on the Muslims even though they had moved to Medinah. Oppression is injustice and Allah asked them to fight. There were just 300 plus Muslims who fought against a thousand Makkans. The Makkans were well armed and the Muslims were armed with the order from Allah subhanahu wata’aala to fight them. They were victorious and the Makkans were humiliated and defeated.
Muslims always fought defensive wars, there are verses in the Quran that asks Muslims to fight those who oppress them but there are rules of engagement. Islam haters conveniently ignore those verses as they don’t serve their purpose.
9:5 Then when the Sacred Months (the 1st, 7th, 11th, and 12th months of the Islamic calendar) have passed, then kill the Mushrikun (See V.2:105) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat, then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
9:6 And if anyone of the Mushrikun (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the Word of Allah (the Qur’an), and then escort him to where he can be secure, that is because they are men who know not.
When the enemies of Islam quote verse five from Surah Taubah they conveniently obliterate verse six from the same Surah, because if they mention verse six, it will not serve their purpose of creating animosity and hatred amongst the people. These people like dissension and conflict which in turn gives Islam a bad reputation.
The World has a problem with Muslims and they are always calling them “Jihadist”, “suicide bombers” “terrorist”. And they cite the verses of the Quran to prove that Islam is a religion of war and hate. Contrary to how they publicize Islam, it is a religion that teaches submission and obedience. To achieve a state of peace there has to be a just society. And to establish this just society it has to be free of oppression and this can be done in different ways and war is one of them.
Muslims were not responsible for either the First World War or the Second World War but people have selective memory, they remember only what they want to. Osama bin Laden is the creation of America but Americans forget that too. If Pakistan is unstable it is because of geo political reasons and has absolutely nothing to do with Islam.
When you try and subjugate good people and they feel threatened by your power they will hit back and it has nothing to do with religion. Islam did not order the war in Afghanistan or the War in Iraq. Islam is not a Country or a Dominion its a faith that comprises of people from different countries. Are you going to condemn every Muslim who follows Islam? Strange and ridiculous.
If your assumption are based on the fragile webs of deceit where you try to prove that Islam and the Qur’an brew hatred amongst the people and wage War against the people them pray explain why Indonesia with the highest number of Muslims in the world is not waging war against America or for that matter why is India with the second largest Muslim population not attacking America or its allied countries? How many Indians have been found amongst the terrorists or Indonesians? From the fifty odd Muslim majority countries how many are fighting America?
Open your eyes wide and accept that this is because of your faulty foreign policy and your desperate needs to make Muslims cower under your power.
How does it hurt you if a Muslim woman is covered? Oh yes you lose money to the Fashion Industry. It does not upset you when Christian nuns are covered or that they are not allowed to marry and procreate which is a natural want and right of every human being. What is the difference between a Muslim woman wanting to be modest and a Christian nun wanting to be modest.
Different cultures have different methods of subjugating women, the Chinese have the highest number of female infanticide. Is this oppression? Are they Muslim? The Japanese have a geisha culture they actually tie the feet of their women because they think small feet are attributed to beauty. Is this oppression? Are they Muslims? America has the highest number of rapes and violence’s against women reported everyday. Is this oppression against women? Are all Americans Muslims? India has the worst cases of female infanticide, acid attacks on girls, bride burning for dowry, child marriage, selling of female children. Is this oppression? Are all Indians Muslims? Who are you going to blame all these acts of ugliness on???
America since it has been formed has a modus operandi this is how it survives by making the Americans fear something all the time. It began with the Native Americans, then it was the African Americans later it was the Soviet Union when that fell they geared up their ammunition against the Muslims. There are two drugs that America feeds its people with one is Hatred (can be against anyone) and Entertainment. Both these things keep Americans so busy that they fail to ask their government pertinent questions. Like, How much money is spent on War? Why are people homeless in the land of opportunity? Why is the crime rate so high and what are they doing to control it? Why are Americans not encouraged to get college degrees? Why is the government not spending the money its spending on weapons to benefit its people? Why aren’t there more medical facilities? Why does America have to interfere with the internal politics of any Country? How many American soldiers have died in this war against Islam and to what benefit? But these questions will never be asked because we live in a world that does not actually care for Palestine or Iraq or Syria or Egypt or all the starving African countries, what this World cares about is their selfish interests. As long as the problem is not in their backyard they don’t care.
Today they feel threatened by Islam so they are condemning Islam tomorrow will bring another enemy that America dreams up. India, China wake up you might be on their dream threat list!!! Ordinary people have ordinary minds I am sorry to say they think what they are asked to think therefore their opinion is that of cattle who are lead as they can’t find their own way. Unfortunately for us these cattle decide who is good and who is bad, who is a terrorist and who isn’t.
