We are living in a time of lavishness where one prefers to gossip and has no ample time to testify the rumor. People befell for anecdotes resulting in wreckage leaving behind dust of truths and facts. Rumors usually are orphan enough to hatch a sheer truth hence deserves rectification prior judging someone on its fluke base. In trials and tribulations, the despondency of a person surpasses this mental analysis and become susceptible to the thrown false rumors.
The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) whilst addressing sermon during his farewell Hajj knew that a time would come when his dire followers will succumb to the rumors of averted ones. Prophet has surmised the sermon with:
“O mankind! I have left behind over you that which if you hold fast to it, you will never go astray: the book of Allah and the Sunnah of His prophet.” [Al Bayhaqi]
Meaning, in your affairs and matters consult Quran and Sunnah before claiming or rejecting anything. The Hadith comprises both symbolical and spiritual context entailing to address the absolute source of authenticity revealed by the Exalted Rab of the universe.
Targeting Islam is a Cowardly Act
Quran is complete doctrine guiding people towards truth and embarking them with the enlightenment of Islamic teachings. Quran is all about the ways that Allah Almighty has ascribed for His worshippers for his salvation on the Day of Reckoning. Islam has always been a soft target for the west and its media hence creating doubts in the minds of people but this is a cowardly act.
Open the book of Quran and it has answers to every raised biased question of the westerns yet they do not contemplate what is within Quran but extract the meaning that do not sync with the divine teachings of Allah and Quran.
“We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered.” [Quran 6:38]
1. Terrorism is Muslim monopoly
Muslim stereotypes are perpetuated in every form of Media accompanied by gross misinformation that has rendered facts about Muslims and Islam. No Muslim is a terrorist nor does Islam propel a person to take his gun and shoot his fellow brother. Islam is a religion of peace, scrutinize the history and one will come to know that Christians were the one who reddened the face of globe with crusade wars.
Post 9/11 the west has changed its course of dealings with Muslims and to them every Muslim is a terrorist. Reason being the verse of Quran in which Allah has stated:
“.. kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give Zakat, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” [9:5]
This verse has misquoted and misunderstood. The former verses have explained the context of this verse in which Allah commanded His followers to ambush and encounter the Jews and Christians in battlefield. This does not mean to kill every single non-believer, as a single killing is the slaying of entire nation for Allah has Quran has further cemented its proof as:
“If anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind.” [5:32]
2. Veiled Women are the Oppressed Entity
Westerns are those who have never read Quran hence making an argument on naysayers belief is all that has rendered the image of Islam and Muslims. Whenever they spotted a veiled woman, they mocked her with follower of conservative religion subjugated to the male dominating clan. All baseless and absurd!
Muslims pay respect to their woman in a way commanded by Allah Almighty. The veil that has become laughing stock for west is now the most appreciated gesture in the west because of the soaring rape cases reported daily.
“O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves [part] of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” [33:59]
Veil is for the “known and distinct ones.” It is the height of ignorance of West towards Quran and Allah Almighty by mocking what should deem to be appreciated for Western sisters and daughters. Veil in not a symbol of subjugation but a sign of respect and honor, to be among the pure and pious in sight of their Rab.
3. Quran: A Fabricated Scripture
The speech of Quran is irrefutable and free of discrepancies but for the non-believers and idolaters it still is mere a book holding fabricated stories. Quran is a word of Allah and he has taken the responsibility to guard its divinity. Allah quotes in Quran:
“Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an and indeed, We will be its guardian.” [Quran 15:9]
A recent study of NASA is one such example in which they denied the fact of “moon splitting into two” however, the Quran has called it a miracle.
“The Hour has come near, and the moon has split [in two]. And if they see a miracle, they turn away and say, “Passing magic.” [54: 1-2]
News spread on social media that NASA confirmed the splitting of moon but later denied it with the title that no such evidence has found and Muslims are the idiots to believe everything in Quran. Denying the miracle of Lord is ignoring the absolute supremacy about which Allah has clearly stated before hand:
“[Theirs is] like the custom of the people of Pharaoh and those before them. They denied Our signs, so Allah seized them for their sins. And Allah is severe in penalty.” [Quran 3:11]
The day is night when these idolaters will be flogged and accountable for their every single deed. Allah verily is the best judge when it comes to deal with the denied souls sagged in ignorance.
Quran is the ultimate source to distinguish the truth from false. Electronic Media, Print media and social sites are the prime cause of producing news of falsehood nature and nurtured it with exaggeration coated with flamboyancy. They pass on the news for media ratings oblivion of the shirk they are sinking deep into. Hence, verify the news despite its nature prior prevailing or handing it to other medium:
“O you who have believed, if there comes to you a disobedient one with information, investigate, lest you harm a people out of ignorance and become, over what you have done, regretful.” [Quran 49:6]
