A Response to Bill Warner’s

A Response to Bill Warner’s “Is a Nice Muslim a Good Muslim”

February 14th, 2010|Responses

Our long history of Islamophobia in the West dates back to the time of the Crusades. For centuries Islam has been portrayed as a violent religion of the sword forced upon on the world by a warmonger. This distorted representation of Islam and the Prophet Muhammad became a received idea in the West, and by and large we find it challenging to hold ourselves to the same standards of objectivity and impartiality when it comes to Islam and its prophet that we would set for ourselves when considering any other religion or historical character. A case in point is Bill Warner’s article ‘Is a Nice Muslim a Good Muslim?’.

              Warner’s article is a list of hackneyed aspersions cast on Islam and its prophet. He blit

Does Islam regard non-Muslims with mercy and compassion?

Does Islam regard non-Muslims with mercy and compassion?


What is the Islamic view of humanity? Does it encourage us to love and respect others as human beings, regardless of their religion or race?

Praise be to Allah.

The Islamic view of humanity is filled with mercy and compassion, and it cannot be otherwise, because the Islamic religion is the last of the religions that were prescribed by Allah, may He be exalted, and He commanded all of mankind to enter this religion. He revealed this religion and sent it down to the most compassionate of mankind, Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). This is confirmed in the Book of Allah, where He says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And We have sent you (O Muhammad SAW) not but as a mercy for the ‘Alameen (mankind, jinns and all that exists)”

[al-Anbiya’ 21:107].

 

With regard to that, there are commands in the Qur’aan and Sunnah to

Here are 8 Christian Terrorist Organizations That Equal ISIS

terrorists

The right-wing is quick to condemn all of Islam like it’s a singular entity, and hold every Muslim accountable for the actions of a handful bad apples. As I’ve often said, no one religion — not even Buddhism — has the “right” to claim they’re non-violent. Holy War is one of those things that cuts across all religions equally. And while you can point this out to right-wingers, they won’t listen: they’re quick to invoke Boko Haram, ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Al-Sheebab, or some other terrorist agency and pretend they’re the sum total of all Muslims.

Well, there are Christian terrorist agencies that are just as scary, and some of them just as bad if not worse, than ISIS. A few of these you may have heard of, but since our so-called “liberal media” gets cold feet at naming Christian Terrorism what it is, some of them slip under the radar or aren’t as associated with Christian terrorism as they should be in the popular imagination.

Moscow’s Muslims find no room in the mosque رابط الموضوع: http://www.alukah.net/translations/0/100497/#ixzz4DplhGW1b

Moscow’s Muslims find no room in the mosque

On a cold Friday in March, Bolshaya Tatarskaya street in the centre of Moscow is at a standstill. It runs past the Russian capital’s oldest mosque.

More than two million Muslims now live and work in Moscow. It has become one of the biggest cities for Muslims in Europe and its few houses of worship can no longer cope.

During Friday prayers the historic building is overflowing and thousands of faithful are praying outside in the snow.

Cars honk their horns and local people struggle to get past on the pavements.

Convertirme al islam no fue para nada una imposición de mi marido

«6»

José Ángel, Ana María, Consuelo y Álex son españoles. De padres, abuelos y antepasados españoles, que fueron bautizados, leyeron la Biblia e hicieron la comunión como buenos católicos. Eran cuatro fervientes creyentes de Jesús que iban a misa e, incluso, estudiaron en colegios de monjas… hasta que un día comenzaron a dudar, tanto que acabaron tomando la decisión más importante de sus vidas: convertirse al islam.

«Convertirme al islam fue la mejor decisión que he tomado en mi vida»

«Convertirme al islam fue la mejor decisión que he tomado en mi vida», asegura José Ángel en este vídeo, donde sus cuatro protagonistas coinciden en que esta decisión les cambió por completo. Algunos hicieron nuevas amistades, porque lo de salir por las noches a las discotecas y beber alcohol no estaba bien visto por su nueva religión. Otros abandonaron ciertos malos hábitos, como «fumar hachís» o «gritar a los padres», por citar otro de los ejemplos.

Todos están convencidos de que su decisión, en ningún caso, fue forzada. Tomaron la decisión libremente y tras un lento proceso de transformación, que se inició con las dudas que les suscitaron algunos principios del cristianismo. Los amigos de Alex insitieron en que le habían comido la cabeza, algo que él siempre negó. Y Ana María asegura que nadie la ha obligado ni la obligará a quitarse su velo. «Para nada fue una imposición de mi marido (marroquí). Lo decidí yo sola y él me preguntó si estaba segura. Que para estar con él no tenía que ser musulmana, que nadie me obligaba», cuenta.

Western media’s bias against Islam and Muslims

Western Media’s Bias: We are Not Helpless Against It

By: Dr. Ahmad Shafaat

(1986)


It hardly needs to be said that Western media is biased against Islam and Muslims: every Muslim who reads the daily newspaper(s) in his city, watches television or listens to the radio is well aware of this. What is generally not realized and therefore needs to be said is that we are not totally helpless against the media’s bias. Often we can do a great deal to counter it by only a little concern and a willingness to translate that concern into no greater effort than composing a few letters and mailing them.

The World’s Largest Muslim Group Has Been Opposing Radical Islam

The World’s Largest Muslim Group Has Been Opposing Radical Islam for 90 Years

(ANTIMEDIA) Though over one billion people in the world subscribe to the faith of Islam, every time a Muslim individual commits a violent and highly-publicized attack in the West, Americans demand unequivocal apologies and condemnations from all adherents to the religion. They cannot be bothered, of course, with the exact, same terroristic slaughter of non-whites in far-off lands.
Over and over, Islamic groups around the world condemn terrorist attacks and reiterate that violent radicals do not truly adhere to the religion. Even so, this never seems to be enough for the Fox News-inclined, who often falsely claim Muslims remain silent because they are uncivilized, violent savages. They insist ‘good’ Muslims must do more to combat extremism.
