I personally see all their comments as a way of them trying to get the muslims to become full of anger and hatred- do we want to give into them?the Kuffar? No way hozay.
I tried to encourage others from posting comments made by the non-muslims on other websites in the Jack straw post; although my reply was ignored, I'm glad eyes have opened up to this post. Jazaka'Allah shining light & Br.Yasin fpr brining this up.
I say let us post more virtuous posts up instead and gain more knowledge and also help those people who do not know anything about Islam. Hopefully we can convince some of the non-muslims out there what Islam is really about.
I'm sure it wasn't ignored.
Reading the kuffar's comments do spark anger and upset. Please try and limit their comments. Let us spend that time raising our hands in duaa for all of our muslim sisters.
Duaas requested. Wassalam
That's the post. And I totally agree and come to think of it, you were the first one to mention it. Jazakillah
The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) would always greet antagonism with kindness.
If we allow ourselves to become angered, and thus develop a defensive and harsh facade/persona, then we will fail in attracting sincere people to the beautiful deen.
I don't think that reading islamophobic articles will benefit us. Instead we should concentrate on developing our akhlaaq and showing the joe/jill public what Muslims are all about.
If we go out there believing that the people around us hold these views, then the natural instinct would be to behave towards them in a less than polite manner. For this reason, we should not indulge ourselves in such articles, insha Allah.
Smite them with a smile ! :-) ... yes, again, and again and again. Never tire of smiling in the face of adversity and anger.
May Allah reward you all! mashallah some very good and positive points
made by everyone..i wont say we should bury our heads in the ground and ignore
these things ..but we should always try and find a way through
difficulties and move the negativeness into positiveness..we shouldn't bombard this
forum by posting negative remarks made by everyone who makes them against us
whether by so called Muslims or non Muslims they already have the ability to do
that and have spread enough of it..instead it would be good to counter it with
awareness/answers/information/support by ourselves and made by other Muslims
or even non-Muslim.. this is our own media lets use it wisely..lets make serious
dua's to Allah and continue with helping the Deen of Allah and like brother Yasin
said "there are so many virtuous posts we can post instead, we can spend time
helping those who have doubts in certain things "
so i vote in the middle of two
there are so many beneficial issues to learn about, Islam is vast and as many pious ulema state, it is so vast that we would carry on learing right until we would reach our graves. to be honest all this negative media does nothing beneficial but create hatred amongst muslims and non-muslims alike, it is pointless posting and discussing info. we as muslims already know is incorrect.
i have also learnt, that to read/listen/watch false information has a detrimental affect on ones heart and has a negative affect on ones imaan.
Shining light is right, if we were to spread correct info. on Islam if any false info. did arise, a person would instinctively recognise it has being incorrect. Alhamdulillah, this is where the gift of Allah سبحانه وتعالى comes in; 'THE INTELLECT' (the aql) and as far as im concerned it is just not going to be possible to keep combating all the rubbish that is being circulated about Islam because this rubbish is going to carry on increasing until the day of judgement. Rather then justifying Islam, better to be spreading and teaching the truth about Islam.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
