Well, I will address mostly muslims, or only muslims.
Because Iam a muslim. I get heartburns whenever I see muslims not being ‘muslims’.So, I consider it as a bigger duty to make them understand how a muslim should be rather than educating or introducing non muslims to Islam.
Iam fed up for giving this usual explanation to queries from non muslims- ” Islam is not what muslims do or what you see as muslims doing, Instead Islam is what MUSLIMS SHOULD DO & most of them NOT DOING”.
How can one blame QURAN or ALLAH for what muslims do which Islam forbids not to do???
So, my blog, at present deals with my muslim fellow beings. Others are also welcome , to see what is going on.
So, where should I start ? I will better refer to my daily experiences rather than mentioning general views or statistics.
Here I go!
Last week, my non muslim brother was using an internet access for a purpose which was illegal . He told me, “You can use this too. Get this from Mr.X”. Well, this Mr.X is a pious muslim, who dont miss a prayer. Well, in his prayers he is giving ALLAH his due, but what about his day-to day activities???? Does ALLAH just wants you to bow before him in prayers & after that you circulate illegal softwares???
As far as I know, in my humble knowledge , a muslim should atleast try to be good IN & OUT ! Allah loves those who refrain from doing things out of love for HIM!
I remember , once , a man who converted to Islam, sorry, reverted to Islam, the first day, came back the second day & asked “I work in a bank which works on Interests, should I quit my job?”
He was asked to ‘quit’ .
He agreed to do that. This happened in a Peace conference in Dubai. My eyes were filled at the effort that the revert was taking to stay away from what ALLAH has prohibited. See he is ready to obey ALLAH even if it cost him his job!! Iam sure ALLAH widens the paths of such muslims who take effort to obey HIM!
What about we muslims who are muslims just because our parents are muslims? We think “All are doing such things. So, No problem.”
I salute all the reverts because ‘they were thinking’-(courtesy-Ahmed Deedat).
Tip 1 -Humble request : My muslim brothers, try to be good in all aspects ,otherwise you are wasting ALLAH’s GRACE!
Will continue later……..
