The Hidden Truth About Islam
What is Islam? Time to know
There is nothing in life quite like the feeling of being understood. What I read and heard in some of newspaper or TV about Muslims is very wrong. When everyone hear the word Islam or Muslims they get terrified and the first thing that comes into their minds are terrorist, booming killing etc. It makes me very sad because the concept of Islam (peace) is totally the opposite. I’m writing this article to let the entire world know the truth about Islam and Muslims and to clear the image about them. There are a lot of rumors that make Muslims look bad. Let me take you step by step so you know the truth about Muslims. How about starting with the word (Islam). What does it mean? Islam is a religion that all Muslims follow. It means submission and derives from a word meaning peace. In a religious context,it means complete submission to the will of God. What an amazing meaning for a religion isn’t? Now let’s go to the other word (Muslims) it means the person who doesn’t hurt people with his tongue and hand. So, a Muslim lives peacefully without harming anyone. What a wonderful description for a human-being right? Last but not least the most popular greeting that Muslims use is (Alsalam alekum), some people might be threatened by this statement, while it means peace on you. So why you get scared when you hear it? While the meaning is so lovely.
Muslimes are not terrosiet
You will say what about the Muslims who kill innocent people? I would like to confirm you that in Islam people who kill other innocent people with any religious who have done no harm, they have done a major sin. Therefore, they are not Muslims, even though they claim to be but they are considered as criminals.Muslims don’t kill innocent people. They only attack whoever attacks them; they are only defending themselves and its human nature after all. Israel and Palestine conflict is a great example. I know it’s a sensitive topic to talk about but the truth must rise. Israel army have been burning farms, destroying houses, killing innocent Palestinians for over than 50 years. Israel started the war so who’s the terrorist now? What do you expect from Palestinian people to do? They have to defend themselves. Before you say Muslims are terrorist, think what happened to them so they kill people like that. Trust me they don’t do it for no reason. It is written in the Holy Quran that (Tooth for a tooth and eye for an eye) which means whatever you do to me I will do the same back to you. It is the justice itself.
Islam is a perfect religion but we are not
Islam has taught us many good manners for example, kindness to parents, Kindness to spouses, kindness to neighbors ,smiling, generosity , honesty, mercy ,no backbiting, removing obstacles from the way and many more wonderful deeds. Of course, Muslims are not the same, just as how your fingers are not the same. Some of them are following the religion correctly, while others are not. Some of them commit sin and some of them not. So don’t judge the majority and generalize as they all bad. Epically Islam because Islam is a perfect religion but we are not. You must always take Islam from its pure sources, ask for explanation from scholars, and never listen to whatever media presents because some of them are hiding the truth. They are telling stories which fit their own purpose, whatever that might be, if it’s for the business or political reasons. They are not academic institutions presenting accurate data. Data are manipulated, and then presented.
