Salaam o alaikum wa rahmatullah,
May Allah(SWT) forgive me if Iam wrong and guide me upon the straight path. Aameen.
Ever Wonder y a nun can be covered from head to toe and she's respected for devoting herself to GOd.And when a Muslimah does that she is "Oppressed"?
Ever wonder why a Jew can grow a beard and he's just practising his faith.
And when a Muslim does that he is an extremist?
Ever wonder when a western woman stays at home to look after her kids and the house she is sacrificing herself and doin good for the household. and when a muslim woman does that she "needs to be liberated"?
Ever wonder why is it that when a child dedicates himself to a subject he has POTENTIAL, but when a child dedicates himself to Islam he is HOPELESS???
Ever wonder when a Christian or a Jew kills someone, Religion is NOT mentioned..., but when a Muslim is charged with a crime it is Islam that goes to trial???
I have come across this many times. The first couple of times I have thought of how it makes perfect sense. But recently, when I came across it again, I felt differently.
I'll try and put it simply. This initial post surely speaks of the truth of how we are treated. But most of these questions, in my opinion, have straight forward answers. The fact is, majority of our muslim sisters back home Are oppressed. Men have beards but are no where Near practicing what Islam is.
Yes, speak up against the injustices against us by the west and non-muslims. But, let us work to improve ourselves, with a passion far greater than what we have when we try to defend ourselves. Let us try to rid our societies of the injustices our brothers and sisters commit by first educating ourselves.
And spread peace and trust through our Actions...
Actions speak far louder than words...
JazakAllah khair for the post.
May Allah(SWT) forgive me and us all. And guide our ummah. Aameen.
Alaikum Salaam wa rahmatullah
