There is a need for the Muslim world to understand the teachings of Islam and the elimination of the present, prevailing myths, in our Muslim world.
When you go to a Muslim clergy person like Maulana or Mufti in Pakistan or an Imam, as in the U.S, mostly from the middle east, generally, they say Allah may forgive our sins but may not make us believe in the true sense of the teaching of Islam in actions.
“Enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong” in Surah no. 3, Ayat no. 4 as commanded by Allah in the holy book Al Quran, I observed as an Imam in ICVA:
- MOST OF US DO NOT STUDY THE QUR’AN
Our religious leaders do not discourage or forbid sinning; they say God is merciful, will forgive.
وَلَا تَسُبُّوا الَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ فَيَسُبُّوا اللَّهَ عَدْوًا بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ ۗ كَذَٰلِكَ زَيَّنَّا لِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ عَمَلَهُمْ ثُمَّ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِمْ مَرْجِعُهُمْ فَيُنَبِّئُهُمْ بِمَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ
“Revile not Ye those whom they call upon besides Allah, lest they out of spite Revile Allah in their ignorance. Thus have we made alluring to each people its own doings? In the end will they return to their Lord, and we shall then tell them the truth of all that they did “
“Abuse not those, whom they call upon besides Allah, lest they abuse Allah out of enmity without realizing it. Thus have made the actions of each community seem pleasing to itself. To their Lord they return, and He will declare to them what they have done.”
Believers in Allah and his last Prophet (Muslims) should not insult in any way to those who believe in gods besides Allah. They may retaliate and call bad names to Allah out of their ignorance.
Before doing any action, understand the person first about his or her life or full profile where he or she lives; nature, psychology, thinking, and family back ground. There are some hidden unknown aspects not known to the community such as origin, education levels and the geographic location and surrounding location, environment and other factors.
Live peacefully, understand people; it is Allah who provides guidance we should respect people and live with community in harmony while respecting people of their rights as a human being in this global world.
Learn the truth:
Islam is a system that embraces belief in Allah and HIS all prophets, morals and practical conduct; should not be imposed by compulsion of any kind of force.
Religion is a choice that Allah has given to people as described in this verse; cannot be forced to people to the Deen of Islam. It is up to the people to choose this path of life or the other paths. It is a message to the people from Allah who believe in Allah and HIS prophets, and the last prophet of Allah, Mohammad (peace be on him) to whom this holy Quran was revealed who brought this Deen known as Islam.
Islam is a system that embraces belief in Allah and His Prophets, morals and practical conduct; should not be imposed by compulsion of any kind of force.
These verses describe:
- There is no compulsion in religion.
- The right path has been distinguished from the wrong and is absolute and universal
- A universal statement and under no condition should others be forced to believe in the holy Quran and the religion of Islam.
- Do not force anyone to become Muslim. Quran is the book of Allah; is guidance absolute sure, without any doubt to those who fear Allah.
- Islam is simple plain and is clear about belief in Allah and HIS last prophet, Mohammad (peace be on him).
A great lesson, read, ponder, ask, knock, and understand Quran (commandment) and learn from the sayings of the prophets (peace be on them) if asking for successes in this world (present) and hereafter (unknown future).
Once again, it is a belief. Thank you.
