On question to a reader…

I am always filled with alacrity to explain Islam:

TomyDee, respectfully has stated the following in one my posts entitled “A New Cartoon…Just Do Dua“:

“This website is just another Islamic propaganda tool. Its time for the Muslims to take responsibility for their violent actions and for their religion, which has been abducted by extremists and terrorists. Rioting and killing because of some ink printed on paper is unacceptable and senseless. The Muslim clerics and religious hierarchy have duped the Islamic community, the general population are nothing more than mindless sheep taking orders from a lost shepard.”

I come to ask myself why its seems so negative that I am firstly practicing one the primary amending rights of the US. He is stating that this site “is just another Islamic Propaganda tool”. Its is my duty as a Muslim to propogate my islam, as it is same for the people of the book.

He then states that “its time for the Muslims to take responsibility for their violent actions and for their religion, which has been abducted by extremists and terrorists”. Firstly I am taking responsibility of my religion but it seems to be contradictionary to the first statement that isn’t allowing me propogate my light in this weary world.

I do not intend to ruin the union of the world with labels of ‘East’ and ‘West’, however there lies on this planet a difference that causes much confusion amongst us. So, then on he says that ‘Rioting and killing because of some ink printed on paper is unacceptable and senseless’, and indeed this is very true but this is only an aspect of the secularized and singular western thought. Most simply this view is almost dominating in a world that has a greater and diverse population than that of the West which thinks, most obviously, different and might I add maybe even more clearly. I say clearly because what this follows is a statistical example: Almost complete ignorance and disrespect for the prime view of millions of people who are usually the best of men. However, when enraged by the action of a man who completely is oblivious to the love one has for his Prophet, may peace be upon him, is put under the speculation as a man who is ‘crazy’. Yes, under logical analysis the actions of these ‘extremists’ are ‘crazy’. I add those quotes because the man who commits such actions, does it with ‘extreme love’ for his great prophet, so much so that he is labled ‘crazy’. The love that a muslim shall have for his Lord can be unimaginably more significant than the existance of this world. And what makes his statement invalid is its failure to realize this love one has for his Lord and His Prophet. This love however isn’t blind as it so terribly seems at times. The actions of these men are unusually thought out with honesty. For example, before that Dane Embassy was burned down, the complete enragement of those specific Muslims were caused by the refusal of the Nation to rid thier press of such things and apologize. Hence occurs the actions of a man in Love.

All should know, that the love that we have for our beloved Prophet, may peace and blessings be upon him, is more dear than that love between our mothers and fathers. This love is greater than any earthly love. It is amazing when experianced. Now any person who crosses another with such love will easily come to name that person a loony. But this love is beyond the reaches of matter. Why is it that we ask for blessings upon him when ever his name is called.

And there on TomyDee says, “The Muslim clerics and religious hierarchy have duped the Islamic community, the general population are nothing more than mindless sheep taking orders from a lost shepard”. TomyDee, I really respect you for you understanding thus far, however these Muslims have not at all even taken charge of Islam. The Muslims are actually in union, the only complete difference within islam is inbetween the Shia and the Sunni. So moreover, I will answer to any statement that’ll follow. Much Thanks, for reading, but I’m sorry if all that read like a textbook. Jaza Khair.

  1. Thank you, I am well versed on textbook format and have also read them with great understanding of their meaning.You write of condradictions and yet you condradict yourself with the East , West labels.There are many individuals in western society who can divorce themselves from secular thought. The east doesn’t retain sole ownership of this train of thinking. The insane violence diplayed plays into my point of the blind leading the blind. To act out in an irrational manner, no matter how much love is posessed in an individuals heart for their God, goes against that God’s teachings. There are Muslim clerics competing against each other for both secular power and wordly audience, it seems whoever is the most radical wins. These clerics are using the Muslim community as pawns in their power struggle. To whip these people into a frenzy is a means to gain control. To the winner (the one with the most extreme ideas) comes power and prestige. And the loser in the end… the reputation of Islam.

  2. The whole Muslim community is not entirely the union of which you speak. You cite differences between the Sunni and Shia sects, but there are also other sects which are not in full accord. There are many other denominations of Islam who consider themselves Muslim. Mulims are also made up of the Wahhabis(Salafis), Zikris, Ahmadiyya, Al-Ahbash, Druze, Alawites and to some The Nation of Islam. To use such a broad brush stroke to classify the Muslim membership is misleading. These other sects have significant theological, legal and political differences. Yet, these sects all fall under the banner of being Muslim. The amalgamation of the Muslim community is not quite as what you potray it to be. Much thanks for reading, I’m sorry if it read like a treatise.

  3. hey tomy, i’m really intrested in having this very important conversation with you but i haven’t been replying because of my studies. I promise to catch up with you and duscuss this importance. And it’s great you have so much knowledge of islam, it’ll be much more intresting because of the fact. I hope you’ll understand. And there’ll be automatic posts about the discourses of a famed scholor of the past centuries in islam. thanks.
