Dear muslims
You are the ambassador of islam in the Swiss land.Be tolerant and use dialogue and peaceful means to defend your cause.Swiss people are wise.They will listen to your mesage positively. Islam is the religion of peace: its meaning is peace; one of Allah’s Names is Peace; the daily greetings of Muslims and angels are peace; Paradise is the abode of peace, the adjective “Muslim” means Peaceful. Peace is the nature, the meaning, the emblem and the objective of Islam. Every being is entitled to enjoy the peace of Islam and the kindness of the peaceful Muslims, regardless of religious or geographical or racial considerations, so long as there is no aggression against Islam or the Muslims.

If non-Muslims are peaceful with the Muslims or even indifferent to Islam, there can be no ground or justification to declare war on them. There is no such thing as religious war to force Islam on non-Muslims, because if Islam does not emerge from deep convictions, from within, it is not acceptable to Allah, nor can it help its professor.

We have to emphasize that we human beings are all one family. Whites and Blacks, people of all races, colors and all nationalities are from one and the same parents. It is important to build good families and keep good family ties, but we must go beyond our own family and treat all people as one family.
The tragic and evil acts of terrorism that happened on September 11, 2001 in New York and Washington have created a lot of fear and suspicion in our minds and in the minds of many of Americans and non muslims. For weeks and months people will be talking about this tragedy. For us Muslims, especially, there are many trials and challenges ahead.

There are many things that we have to do. Muslims have been living in the west for many years, but for all these years they’ve remained very neglectful in making ourselves known to our neighbors and co-workers. They remained in isolation.

Many people around them feel mysterious about us. They do not know us and do not know much about our religion and our values. If swiss bans the building of minaret ,your behaviour should be like the highest one ..Displaying good conducts will elevate u status and promote you.Moreover, through good traits u will gain the sympathy of many and attreact them them to know the true religion of islam.

Justice requires that the wrong should be corrected with right means. Injustice cannot be removed by another injustice. Two wrongs do not make one right and ends do not justify the means. The ends must be right and the means must be right.

Justice requires that you should not do to others what you do not like others to do to yourself. Or in a positive way one can say, “Love for others what you love others to do to you.” Or even better is what the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Love for your brother what you love for yourself.” Allah says in the Qur'an, "O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to God, even if be against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for God can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily God is well-acquainted with all that you do." (An-Nisa': 134)

:sl:
thanks you for your message, but im finding it a little insulting for the reasons that you immediately jump to the conclusion that we are going to launch some kind of attack!? and that we are the ones behind 9/11.

you seem to send a good message, but underneath seems to lurk the blame on us. imsad i dont know if this is intended or not, but this is what is seems.

Swiss people are wise.They will listen to your mesage positively.

but there already is :(

i dont agree with this, and it seems a little apologetic (no offense). of course we are to treat and be just to those who show kindness and justice to us, but what about those who dont? there are always exceptions and this whole "go out of your way and bend over backwards for someone despite the fact that they have enmity towards you," is utterly ridiculous (again, no offense)...

The tragic and evil acts of terrorism that happened on September 11, 2001 in New York and Washington have created a lot of fear and suspicion in our minds and in the minds of many of Americans and non muslims. For weeks and months people will be talking about this tragedy.
so we get accused and insulted becuase of this, and yet, we still have to remain quite, and act all kind and lovely to those who treat us unjust-fully? im sorry, but for any right minded person, this is unrealistic!

you also mentioned be just and have high character then they? you need to define this, becuase something that appears "unjust" may exactly be the opposite.

p.s are you muslim?

I had a thread like this once. I explained why using reverse psychology (being nice to the insulters instead of insulting them back) on these people will actually help Islam.. but I guess its in people's nature to bicker and argue and they'd rather not be nice :(

The best thing to do would be to gather every possible Islamic organization is Switzerland and all of Europe, and constantly hound the government and make sure every corner of the public hears your voice. Banning minarets is just stupid, quite frankly.

^ my thoughts exactly. we really need to do something and something can be done...

The minaret-furor all began in 2005, when a small mosque in the almost unheard of municipality of Wangen bei Olten wished to construct a 6-meter minaret as part of the mosque structure. Local residents, quite clearly motivated by racist views, objected. Initially, the city council agreed, but over the course of the next few years, the mosque fought back through the legal system, eventually taking this issue up to the Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland, who sided with the mosque authorities and stated that building a minaret was within their legal rights. Therefore, in July of this year (2009), the mosque was finally built with the minaret in place.

However, in Switzerland, a ruling from the Supreme Court can still be challenged. Switzerland has a highly unusual form of democracy. It is characterized by an excessive degree of federalism and a gratuitous reliance on people referendums. The citizens themselves may directly appeal to revoke a federal or Supreme court law, and they may also directly petition the government to institute a law of their own. The Swiss system of direct democracy gives every member of the electorate the chance to wield influence. The federal constitutional initiative allows citizens to put a constitutional amendment to a national vote, provided that they can get 100,000 voters to sign the proposed amendment within eighteen months of its initial advertising.
