A Favor….

Recommended Posts

:D warahmatullahi wabarakatu,

 

So I need to right essays on ‘knowledge and theory’ during my holiday as though I have nothing better to do <_<. Anyways as much as I would love to sit here and rant all day I’ll save you all the boredom :D .

 

I would like a huge favor from all you brothers and sisters, I have certain questions to ask and would love if you all took the time to answer as this will be an evidence to back up my essay. Also for those who are non-Muslims I’d also like you guys to precipitate but your questionnaires will be different….if you don’t mind.

 

I’d like to see how many are willing to help, just post and tell me so I know roughly. I’m sorry that I can’t give you anything for your times and effort but inshallah my duas will be with the families and those who help me out.

 

Jizakallah khair in advance :D .

Stayed stable.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "based on cultural issues". If you could please expand on that a bit I could give you an appropriate answer.

peace,

 

You forgot to answer :D

Stayed stable.

 

 

What was this view you had of muslims which stayed stable?

 

 

 

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "based on cultural issues".  If you could please expand on that a bit I could give you an appropriate answer.

 

When i say cultural issue i mean things that are not in Islam like beating of wife which causes severe markings. For example saying "All Muslims beat their wives in muslim countries" Do you understand? :D

How has your view towards Muslims changed or stayed stable since the recent bombings in London?

 

How has it stayed stable? Well, I saw exactly the reaction I expected to see. I expected some Muslims try to immediately shift the blame (especially to somehow blame israel for it), which happened. I expected many to condem the actions, but follow that immediately with a "but", which happened. ("yes it's sad, but Britain invaded Iraq.", "yes, it's sad but look at what israel does every day", etc."). I also saw Muslims condemning the act, angry that someone who possibly called themselves Muslim would commit such an act, and offered no excuses.

 

I see incidents like this as a sort of litmus paper for many Muslims. Which Muslims primary feeling is "this is an atrocity"? Which Muslims primary feeling is "Oh well, Britain asked for it"? Which Muslims felt glee?

 

I don't view all Muslims the same, or even similar. I see a wide gap in beliefs, as in many religions.

 

How do you react to people who are anti-Islam based on cultural issues?

 

If anyone I know is "anti-Islam" I am unaware of it, which I'm sure would surprise many considering I live in the US which many think is rife with anti-Islamic people. I do know many people who, because of their religions, are anti-Islamic, but only in the same way that Muslims are anti-Christian or anti-Jewish (based on religious beliefs). I don't recall anyone ever saying anything anti-Islamic based on cultural issues, but I have often corrected misconceptions people have had about the religion of Islam.

If you could write a paragraph persuading those who are ignorant about their attitudes towards Muslims, what would you write? (Just a short speech sort of thing)

 

If you see one Muslim commit a crime, do not judge all Muslims by what that one Muslim did. If you see some Muslims doing bad things, don't immediately blame "Islam," go and search more about it and try and find out, if what they were doing, was Islamically correct. If you see some Muslims acting in a manner you dont agree with, please go ask them, why they are acting this way, or maybe look it up, so you can understand the reasons why they do things.

 

The way the media makes Islam look, is not really what Islam is. We have always known the media to make up thousands of lies and try and make it look real, well what if they were doing that about Islam?

 

(oh gosh, that was horrible)

 

To what extent has the bombing affected you?

 

(The recent bombing in London?) Well, thanks to Allah, I did not know anyone that got hurt or anyone who was killed. I havent noticed anyone treating me differently after it happened... (so personally not much at all)

 

(however it kills me to think of how people are making Islam look worse and even more worse. I know some Muslims who were mistreated by the kuffr who hate Islam..)

 

The west speaks of how Muslims feel ‘alienated’ in their society, would you agree with this statement and why?

Thats the stupidest thing I ever heard. (sorry I cant really say much more than that)

 

How do you treat people of other faiths? And why do you treat them in this manner?

I have always tried to treat other faiths with respect. I know there were times that I did not, and I regret that for the most part, as everyone has a right to believe what they want, and acting disrepectful to other religions, makes Islam look bad.

To what extent has the bombing affected you?

 

Well it has effected me more then i would like to believe. Since the bombings i have been subjected to verbal abuse that I have never been through before. I have also had this great urge to leave the country, i always wanted to Make hijra but i feel my plans have suddenly been put forward.

Nar i have never felt ailenated in this society, i used to fit in pretty well but all good things must come to an end i guess.

 

How do you treat people of other faiths?

 

to your be yours and to me be mine.

 

And why do you treat them in this manner?

 

Cos it says so in the Quran B)

Don't judge everyone by the mistakes certain minority make. It is lack of knowledge that you seem to express this attitude towards muslims. Islam is a religion of perfection, humans are not.

 

(gee how hard are these questions? :D :D )

 

 

To what extent has the bombing affected you?

 

Well apart from the glares and suspicious glances thrown towards the direction of my handbag, nothing too dangerous so far.

I disagree with this statement, the west are trying to create a division not only between muslims and non-muslims but also within muslims themselves. This idea of 'alienated' is their own desire of how they want things to become, another excuse.

Just like i'd treat my own family, with respect because that is what Islam teaches.

Please keep an open mind and be willing to learn in depth about Islam. Do not go on hear say, and also do not base everything on the one book or actions of another Muslim. The best way to learn and appreciate Islam, is to learn for yourself. :D

 

To what extent has the bombing affected you?

The bombing hasn't affected me at all, Al'hamdulilah. Although I think about it everyday. I wish that these bombers did not make the lives of other innocents, living and dead, difficult. They just break the peace, and majority of people out there want to keep the peace and make more!!!

 

The west speaks of how Muslims feel ‘alienated’ in their society, would you agree with this statement and why?

I agree. Although things are changing, I think we Muslims feel alienated because we do everything according to Islam. Society around us tend to do as they will, and not think about their religion much.

There isn't enough religion about to make one feel comfortable. I think at the back of a Muslim's mind there is always the thought that non-muslims are going to discriminate against us. It would help if non-muslims were not judgemental.

 

How do you treat people of other faiths?

I treat them not much differently than those of my faith. :D I treat everyone with respect.

 

And why do you treat them in this manner?

They don't deserve to be treated differently just because their lack of knowledge of our religion. It might not be their fault. I believe everyone should be given a chance. Not all non-muslims are bad.

Humans should be treated all the same, without any prejudice/discrimination. We're all different and yet all the same.

 

 

 

Hope that helps!!! :D

 

With duas,

Do not be intimidated by the man with a beard who dresses differntly to you, do not fear the women whose eyes can only be seen. know that we the muslims are humans, we do have feelings like you and yes we do socialise and have fun like you belive it or not. we are not blood thirsty as your media potrays us. we too belive life is sacred gift by God, the Islamic way is very rich and rewarding if you only approach it with a clear mind and no pre-conconception about it.

 

To what extent has the bombing affected you?

using the public transport i should feel like a victum of possible bomb attack but the wondering and investigative eyes of the public make me feel as though i am guilty. i am more carefull about caring bags on trains not becuase i might be attacked by ignorant vigilante instead to make the passangers feel more comfortable around me.

 

[/b]The west speaks of how Muslims feel ‘alienated’ in their society, would you agree with this statement and why?

i can only speak for my self and from my own experiance prior to the bombing and after it- i do not feel alienated thus i do not agree with the statement

 

How do you treat people of other faiths?

with respect and as individuals.

 

And why do you treat them in this manner?

becuase it is the Islamic way.

If you could write a paragraph persuading those who are ignorant about their attitudes towards Muslims, what would you write? (Just a short speech sort of thing)

 

A Muslim is someone who follows Islam and believes that there is only one God, Allah, and believes in all the prophets of Allah. Read the Koran and you will see how peaceful a religion Islam is. Your life will change when you read this Book. You will not be afraid of death and strive to the greatest person in Allah's eyes. This is the true Muslim. A person who follows good, forbids evil and devotes their life to Allah. Anyone who doesn't meet this criteria is not a true Muslim and should not be seen as one.

 

To what extent has the bombing affected you?

 

Well, I don;t live in London but it is my favourite place and wish to move their one day. The bombings have not deterred me from loving this City and neither should it.

 

I have the odd comment raised at work but nothing serious. I just feel upset for the other Brothers and Sisters that have suffered at the hands and voices of the ignorant.

 

The west speaks of how Muslims feel ‘alienated’ in their society, would you agree with this statement and why?

 

No. The Media and the western powers use this statement to attack Muslims and make them feel alienated when in fact we are not.

 

How do you treat people of other faiths?

 

Equal. To a degree.

 

And why do you treat them in this manner?

 

Its not for me to judge them. I may well think that they are blind to the truth of Islam, but Allah will deal with this one the Day of Judgement, so I shouldn't waste my time worrying about them.

Don’t judge Islam by the actions of a few Muslims. You need to study Islam for yourself to find out the truth. You will see that Islam is not a barbaric or backwards religion, rather it’s a perfect and complete way of life for those who follow it. Islam does not preach violence or hatred, in fact Muslims greet one another with the words ‘peace be upon you’.

 

To what extent has the bombing affected you?

 

I’ve not had any retaliation except for odd looks and glares. But now I do try to find 100 excuses before going out.

 

The west speaks of how Muslims feel ‘alienated’ in their society, would you agree with this statement and why?

 

Not really. Most people are open minded and just accept you for who you are. Those are people that know you personally though.

I respect everyone equally

 

And why do you treat them in this manner?

 

This is how true Muslims should be
