Answering Islamophobia: Please Open Your Eyes!
Hello readers, how are you?
It’s been a while since my last Hub. Something came out and I was really needed to rest from the crowd in this site for while to refreshing my spirit. Now, even not fully recharge, I am back to answer several strong hatred which again, directed to Muslim. Insha Allah (if it is God’s will) I try my best to not answering hate with hate but only with common sense.
Many not able to believing Muslim when we said; Islam is religion of peace. Here in Hub Pages, I read so many insults to Muhammad, SAW and Allah, also to Muslim in general. Right the way; they listed so many facts which they believe can be tools to prove that Muslim far from peace. Start from what they called as the copied sentence of Bible and Torah inside Al Qur’an, the Polygamy of the Prophet, The order of slaying and killing inside Al Qur’an and of course, terrorist acts. We heard all, and we believe we can and already answered all that misconception perfectly, but in so many cases, those who already put so much hatred on Islam and Muslim, want to listen nothing from us but their own opinion. What we hope at first can be proper debate, in the end turned out became great insult for Muslim side. And only to make it worst, another Muslim came in between and insulted them back. Everything turned ugly and nothing we able to accomplished in the end but pain in our pride and rust in our heart.
Just one year at Hub Pages, I found myself being weary about all of this and almost lost my hope on peace that I dream about. How we can have peace if what we do is keep insulting each other? How we can have peace if what we do is pointing our fingers on each other? How we can have peace if what we want is to look for who is right and who is wrong only?
In my early time at Hub Pages, every time I found this kind of hatred Hubs or Forums I surely will jump in without thinking and written my answer. I want to shake every person who so proud told me that I was blind and I worshipping shaitan when it is them who blind by thinking they can accomplish something by insulting Muslim. But these days, I found there is no used to do this because no matter what I said, the hate and suspicion already rusted in their heart. Still, I want all of us to be able to see, beyond all differences, what is the reason behind all of great disaster and calamity which already ruin trust and relationship between two worlds, if it ever existed.
Video bellow is an example (which only one example from many) of why calamity happened between us. The caused is not in our books of God or our race. Not in the name of our God or how we practicing our religion. Not in what we wear or what we not wear. It is simply in our ignorant, greed and lack of humanity. It is only one video, but if you can think about it clearly, about the reason behind all pain we all experience; the anger, the hatred and all, maybe you will see, what is wrong behind this islamophobia attitude.
Clear your mind before you watch this video and please believe me when I said, all I want to do by showing you this video simply to make you understand, it is about the time to stop blaming everything to what you don’t understand (which is Islam and all aspect in Muslim life) and put your concern on something which more important and crucial, humanity. Please stop trying to convert Muslim into your religion by exposed all problems inside Muslim community because you have your own community which need more care and concern from you.
I am Muslim and I am proud to be one. I knew and I see so many wrong in behavior of my people but I can see those in yours too. It is better for us all to stay focus in fixing our own life and community, before we look to other group and pointing our fingers. Don’t be so greed. This world is big enough to all of us. I believe, once all of us agree to do this, by the time, love will cure all pain, and the world will become whole in peace, insha Allah. I put my hope in good side inside every human heart, to make this one dream come true. PEACE!
