ISLAMOPHOBIA

 

“Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”-President Barack Obama

 

 

WHAT IT REALLY MEANS

Islamophobia, a word coined to describe prejudice or hatred against Muslims has widely been used of recent due to an increase in the number of cases involving the above named act.

It literally means “fear of islam”  and it generally  involves offensive remarks  and in extreme cases violence against anyone who appears to be a Muslim or is a Muslim.

 

SO WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?

It has become an issue of late as an increase in islamophobia attacks have been recorded and this has got me wondering how it all started, how we found ourselves at this stage where we can’t ordinarily co-exist and live happily  with our differences .

These differences should make us appreciate life more as it can be found in the Qur’an where Allah says “O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other)…”

 

SO WHO’S TO BLAME?

In every religion, race, group, tribe there exist a minority that spreads the wrong message more of a black sheep in the midst of white sheep and this creates bad publicity but it would be really silly to judge a religion having billions of adherents by a few hundred, it will be more like judging a book by it’s cover.

These few preach Islam by violence and by doing so they are going against what Allah says in the Qur’an “Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious…”

 

 

CURE FOR ISLAMOPHOBIA

We need to spread love, yeah sounds really simple right but it requires lots of patience and tolerance.

On a lighter note ISLAMOPHOBIN might also help.*wink*islamophobinislamophobine
