Assalamu Alaikum!! (May Peace Be Upon You)
So I am an international student studying here in the UK. After I came here I started reading British news. Well, I figured if I am residing here , its better to educate myself about the country and the general goings- on in the country.
Then, I came across a news article about the EDL – The English Defence League. I was thinking. Wow!! Classy name sounds like something out of Robin Hood. At that time, I did not know what they really stood for.
So, I started reading more news articles about them, watched youtube videos, I came across PEGIDA and Britain First. I understood they hated us Muslims.
But, I wanted to know why? What is the reason behind their hatred?
Then I read the main cause was something called “grooming gangs”. I was shocked and completely shaken.
Grooming Gangs!! Completely Unislamic!!
Shame on you muslims giving us all a bad name. This is the problem when some muslims turn their backs on their religion and become rapists, fornicators , adulterers and liars. Shame on you!!
If you were good muslims holding onto perfect Islam you would not have haters!! instead you will have a country that loves you.
If an EDL supporter is reading this, please there are bad apples in every community and our muslim community has a few bad apples too. So, don’t hate all of us. We hate these bad people too.
Our friday sermons, talk about compassion, love and mercy to all human beings.
People think the Arab world is 100% muslim. This is not true. There are a lot of Christian and Jewish communities in the arab world living side by side peacefully with their muslim neighbours like for example Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Morrocco, the GCC.
Though Indian, I was born in an Arab country and lived there my entire life. Christians, Jews and muslims live peacefully side by side. There are a lot of churches, mosques and synagogues in the arab world.
As muslims , it is our religious duty to accept people of all faiths, colour and creed. Unity with diversity.
The Prophet Muhammed(Peace Be Upon Him) in his final sermon said : ” All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor a black has any superiority over white except in piety and good action.” (Hadith Bukhari)
So dear reader, if you have an opportunity to visit an Arab country. Please do. You will find they are very accepting, peace-loving , generous and kind.
Love you all ❤ ❤ ❤
