I don’t know where you come from but I know that miles ,mountains and seas which set us apart can’t t break that human bridge . I wish I knew your name for friends call each others by their name and it seems I’m a friend because you called me so . I would love to tell you that Me being a muslim,and YOU being a Christian ,or he being a muslim and she being a christian doesn’t give us the right to hurt or insult each other. I disdain any Muslim who forgets who he is and crosses lines Islam commands us not to trespass when dealing with others let alone when they’re non muslims. A muslim, as our beloved Prophet may peace be upon him said: “The Muslim is notan accuser, curser, curserwithevil tongue(bigcurser), or minorcurser“.
I also disdain any Christian who …. I can’t even have the courage and the power to write the words ,it feels like it ribs my heart to pieces – who insults our dearly loved Prophet Muhammad may be peace upon him . It’s not Jesus’s legacy to curse or insult.
A muslim is not a curser, neither is a Christian .We can talk ,discuss,enlighten each others gently.We can also answer each other’s questions to clarify sombre thoughts clouding our sense of good judgement softly . Remember that insults or offensive names will add salt to injury .You’re doing harm to Islam by betraying what Allah and his messenger has entrusted with as Allah and his prophet Muhammad may be peace upon him command us to be kind to non-muslims . Allah says
“God does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes – from dealing kindly and justly with them. Indeed, God loves those who act justly. God only forbids you from those who fight you because of religion and expel you from your homes and aid in your expulsion – (forbids) that you make allies of them. And whoever makes allies of them, then it is those who are the wrongdoers.” (Quran 60:8-9)
Remember that some of our beloved prophet Muhammad’s neighbors were non-muslim and he would be generous to them ,visit them when they’re sick and help them in rough time. That is his of legacy mercy and kindness .
Allah endowed you with a precious blessing ; being able to write and read ,so use that gift to draw the beautiful picture of the muslim instead of uglifying by your insults and aggressive way that is strongly disdained by Islam. Violence begets violence . Hatred begets hatred . Genuine true love begets nothing but a genuine true love. Tame the power of your pen to unveil the beauty of Islam and mend their misjudgment. Write and when you write do it with honor .Prayer too is more powerful than violence so pray . Allah and his angels pray . Abu Umama reported that the Messenger of Allah said, “Allah AND His angels AND the people of the heavens AND the earth, EVEN the ants in their rocks AND the fish, PRAY for blessings on those who teach people good.” [at-Tirmidhi] (Aisha Bewley, Riyad as-Salihin (The Meadows of the Righteous), Book of Knowledge, 241. Chapter: the excellence of knowledge
Rememeber also that through the journey of your life you must have come across non-muslims who respect you being a muslim tha they are careful when picking their words to not cross lines with you because they know that a muslim should be treated with respect. I have met some . So let’s not lose a friend who would defend Islam guided by the beautiful and genuine picture we gift them .
I hope you read those words ,they’re meant for you ,you sound upset and sad and that saddens me . You said you have friends who are muslims ,believe it or not a muslim can make a great friend when following what Islam commands him or her to do ,as friends have rights , holy ones so never ever give up on them .
