Salam Nuzul Quran


I rarely speak about Islam because I know I’m too far from perfect. But I’m writing this as I was triggered by reading some nasty comments about Islam – which you can also read from this video on Facebook.

I just want to spread the idea that - we all should respect each other.

Respect everyone.

Respect every religion.

Respect every opinion.

Even when you don’t agree.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are many people want to seek the truth about the purpose of life but only a few are fortunate to get the Hidayah (guidance). He was lucky that he found someone who is pious and knowledgeable about Islam when he’s in the search.

I know there are a lot of bad perceptions towards Islam have been spreading all over the world.

"Muslims are terrorist"

"Islam teaches to kill others"

"Islam is a fake religion"

Most probably, they are pervasively influenced by what they see in media and what they read on Internet, but it’s unfair to blame all Muslims and to condemn the religion when the fact is they know nothing about the teachings in Islam.

There is no bad religion and there is no religion that teaches people to be evil.

There is no bad religion, only bad people.

Reading from some comments that I found on Internet, there are many ignorant people who dare to throw an outrageous statement to show their hatred on Islam. Those comments are bluntly made without any concrete facts to support their statement. 

Clearly, they never do any research, not even open to accept opinion and just want to provoke by making a comment like “Muhammad is crazy”.

Why would some people being so offensive? 

I believe that we were taught to respect everybody’s religion. Yes you can open for a debate but don’t critic, don’t mock, don’t insult their belief. If you want to share your thoughts about something, please ensure that you’re well-versed on the topic and be prepared with the true facts. Don’t quote something that you found on Google without further studies the source. And most common confusion that I see is, they misinterpret a verse from Quran without reading the whole context.

If you have questions such as:

“Why women need to wear hijab? But why some don’t wear it?”

“Why one needs to convert to Islam to marry a Muslim?”

“Does Quran says to kill non-believers?”

“Is Muhammad a pedophile?”

“Why can’t Muslim eat pork?”

And for many more questions that you have, you should look for the righteous person who can give you the answer - based on Quran, not by their own opinion. Also, reading the Quran would certainly help. Or probably start it by reading a book, for example, about the questionnaires in Islam or a story of Muhammad – from a trusted publisher of course.

Eventhough I’m a Muslim-born, but I’m not a good person, not an example to portray Islam. Rule number 1, if you want to learn about Islam, don’t look at Muslims, but learn from Quran and Sunnah instead. This statement came out because nobody’s perfect, we all are sinners and many Muslims out there don’t practice Islam properly.

That’s just in case if - you want to know about Islam.

However, if you still don’t think that Islam is the way of life, it’s okay. “Let there be no compulsion in Islam” (2:256). And as I said earlier, Hidayah only comes to the chosen ones. As long as we can stop the hate and always respect each other’s faith.

“For you is your religion, and for me is my religion(109:6)

Spread love and peace.
