Are Muslims Barbaric and Violent as the Media portrays?
And Again….Where To Draw The Line?
Please be sincere and honest to yourself first… you will never uncover the oppression and lies of the media against Islam and the Muslims unless you keep aside the preconceived notions about Islam that you have been spoon fed for several decades through the Media..
I know very well that most of you hate Muslims and Islam from the depths of your hearts.We dont blame you for that!
We, as Muslims are partially to take the blame for our horrible behavior and unworthy character that many of us have portrayed to you…The other half of the blame goes to the Media (ABC,BBC,CNN,Al Jazeera ,etc) on how they portray us to fulfill their well sponsored Agenda.
If you are sincere in clearing the dust off your eyes about Islam and Muslims, please do not judge Islam by the actions of the Muslims.
Muslims, by definition, are a group of human beings who are mostly born to parents who are Muslims or have Muslim names. They don’t necessarily represent the teachings of Islam.
In every community, there are Black Sheeps. But the Media, takes the Black Sheeps among the Muslims, portrays them in big screens and says to you – ” Look! This is how All Muslims are!”
So if you want to clear off the dust and look at Islam as it sincerely is..please read the Quran ( Islamic scripture). If you can, please get a copy of the Quran with translation of whichever language you speak best, at any authentic Islamic book stores around your place or ask your Muslim friend for a copy. If you are unable to get one, then please visit any authentic Islamic websites which includes –
The U.S. Harvard University, one of the most prestigious institutions in the world, has placed a Quran verse at the entrance of its faculty of law. Described by the institution as one of the greatest expressions of justice in history, Verse 135 of Surah Al Nisa (The Women Chapter) is dedicated to humanity as the best expression defending and articulating justice.
“O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for God, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, God is more worthy of both. So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed God is ever, with what you do, Acquainted.” Surat An Nisa 4: 135
According to the Saudi Arabic language daily Ajel, a Saudi Student at Harvard published the picture of the verse on his Twitter page.
“I noticed that the verse was posted by the faculty of law, which described it as one of the greatest expressions for justice in history,” Abdullah Jumma said.
Justice quotations were selected among 150 contributions from law school faculty, staff and students. Yet, the three unanimously appreciated and displayed at the faculty entrance are quotes taken from St. Augustine, the Holy Quran and the Magna Carta.
According to the official website of the university, The Words of Justice exhibition is a clear sign of humanity’s craving for fairness on this earth.
At present, visitors to Harvard, researchers in particular, have the chance to identify themselves with the best articulations of justice since time immemorial.
Harvard University, the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States, was founded in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1636.
