♥A true muslim respects his non-muslim neighbor and he has duties towards him including protecting his interests when he is absent , showing him respect when he is present, helping him when he is inflicted with any injustice , not remaining on look-out to detect his faults ; and if , by any chance , he happens to know any undesirable thing about him , hides it from others . And, at the same time, he tries to desist him from improper habits, if there is any chance that he will listen to him , never leaving him alone in any calamity,forgive him, if he has done any wrong .♥
♥ That was and is the teaching of our beloved Muhammad peace upon him whom Allah Subhanoho wa-T’ala Says to him in The Holy Quran:
وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِين
“And We have not sent you except as a mercy to mankind.” (The Prophets 21:107).
Our beloved prophet Muhammad may peace be upon him, enjoins us to show mercy towards non-muslims as he had always done . Some of his neighbors were non-muslims. He would be kind to them like the Jewish poor family he would regularly gave charity to . Even after his death , Muslims maintained his charity towards them . Another story bears witness to his mercy ,that of Christian delegation from Ethiopian churches who came to Medina and the Prophet opened up his mosque for them to stay in, hosted them generously, and personally served them meals. He said:“They were generous to our companions, so I wish to be generous to them in person…” ♥
♥A true Muslim doesn’t take lives either for life is sacred even that of small creatures and Allah the almighty will chastise those who trespass his commandment about that . Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him too preaches kindness not cruelty and hatred . It is narrated that during a journey the Prophet left his companion for a while. During his absence, his companion saw a bird called hummara and took two young ones away from the mother bird. The mother bird was circling above in the air, beating its wings in grief, when the Prophet came back and said: “Who has hurt the feelings of this bird by taking its young? Return them to her”. The Prophet companion then replaced the offspring in the same bush.Another stories tells that on the way to a battle, the Prophet army marched towards Makkah (now known as Mecca) to conquer it, they passed a female dog with puppies. The Prophet not only gave orders that the mother dog and puppies should not be hurt or disturbed, but posted a man to see that this was done.
♥A true muslim is not a murder or a ” suicid bomber ” . Allah condemns killing the innocent . Allah ,the almighty says in his holy book:
[Quran 60:8] GOD does not enjoin you from befriending those who do not fight you because of religion, and do not evict you from your homes. You may befriend them and be equitable towards them. GOD loves the equitable.
[Quran 8:61] If they resort to peace, so shall you, and put your trust in GOD. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient.
[Quran 4:90]”…Therefore, if they leave you alone, refrain from fighting you, and offer you peace, then GOD gives you no excuse to fight them.”
You refer to all muslims as “suicid bombers” in your poem and that’s wrong, and illogical and too judgmental . You disdain suicid bombers for taking lives of the innocent while you point an accusing finger at people ,calling them murders ,stripping them of their honor, kindness and humanity on the ground that a muslim exploded himself . You try to ruin the reputation of people who don’t know anything about harming others . Allah don’t punish people for the faults of others , each has to take the responsibility of their actions. Who gave you the right to judge people ? you don’t even know their names ,their background,their culture, or their dreams ! ♥I am muslim and I am proud of being Muslim for Islam preaches love, tolerance, altruism and compassion .With every Dawn prayer ,with every Ramadan, with every new sunrise and new sunset ,I praise Allah for being a muslim for the serenity I feel is beyond description .♥ Please make sure not to twist my words when reporting them next time . I didn’t say suicider bomb sisters and brothers in Islam . I said sister and brother in Islam , it was a warm greeting that you twisted its meaning .It would be more credible and honest to report my words as they are for honesty is a fabric of us as human too isn’t it?
