Objections on the behavior and character of the Muslims
By Maulana Muhammad Tayyab
Nowadays, people used to say that Islam is the
best religion of the world but its believers
are the worst among the believers of religions.
This negative thinking, which is in fact a complex,
caught the attention of the minds of not only the
non-Muslims, but the Muslims also.
Very few people are aware of the fact that this thinking
is being propagated to curb Islam--a religion the West
is afraid of.
It would be better if we make a thorough research why
this false propaganda has been on air for so long.
It is quite clear that most of the people who learnt
about Islam or embraced Islam got attached to the
religion after being inspired of any Muslim's
personality, either watching him his nearby or in
The quality of moral character of that Muslim made such psychological
effects on the minds of the people that
stressed him to either embrace Islam, or at least to
learn the actual teachings of the religion.
Each time a person embraced Islam, it was either a quality of Islam
inspired him to embrace the religion or it was a quality of anyone of
its believers that compelled him to do so.
No other religion can present an example like that in
which a person, after being inspired of any believer's
character, embraced that religion while Islam--even in
the present century--can present a great many examples
of that phenomena.
Presenting a concept that each and every believer of a
religion is the worst of the whole human being
irrespective of the fact that the religion is the best
among the existing religions of the world is itself a
wrong and false concept.
A religion cannot be the best among the existing
religions of the world if it is unable to present a
single personality that could show that it is acting
upon the religion in its actual essence. In fact, such a
religion is neither a religion nor a code of life.
Islam, on the contrary, even nowadays, can present
examples of persons who are acting upon it in the whole
world. If we reconsider the issue, we will spot the fact
that the people who have been putting the issue before
mankind that the believers of Islam are unable to act
upon the fundamental teachings of Islam are actually
those who are totally unaware of the fundamental
teachings of the religion.
Even today, the character of majority of the Muslim
rulers is free from sex scandals which include oral sex
issues that are common among the rulers of Western
countries--a social evil every human being, either a
Muslim or a non-Muslim, should avoid. Where will the
West put this act of chastity and avoiding the social
evil? Is it not acting upon Islam?
Is it also declaring the Muslims to be the worst nation
among the nations of the world?
Remembering that chastity is not only the fundamental
teaching of Islam, but in fact, of every religion of the
world, either existing or non-existing, can one ignore
the fact that nowadays only Muslims are practicing the
teaching at their best. Religious discrimination, as far
as I know, has been badly used against Islam and the
Muslims. By strengthening different un-Islamic sects,
who portray themselves to be Muslims just to malign the
image of Islam in the eyes of human beings, non-Muslim
nations have tried their best to crush the Muslims.
They used terms like 'Muslim terrorists' and 'Muslim
kidnappers' in the media to testify that their philosophy is true that
the Muslims are everyone except a civilized
nation. They never used these kinds of words if the condition is vice
versa, ie any other religionist commit such act.
They never discussed the issue that it were they who
smuggled the Muslims from Africa after making those
free men slaves after capturing them. Is it not enough
to testify that they were the worst who did not even
spare a living human being? In the famous novel "Roots",
Alex Healy described the oppression of the West on the
poor Muslims of Africa very clearly.
How many Muslim countries have been doing the business with
Saying something is easy but to prove it with facts and figures is
Muslims obey their Lord both when they are alone and in
The basic concept of making the propaganda is
to incite the human beings to stay away from the easiest
and the most beneficial programmed Islam has carried for them.
The enemies of Islam took every step to present
it in the worst style. Sometimes they presented the image
of Islam as if it is the religion of invaders who massacred people in
the past centuries in the name of religion, excluding the fact that
they are doing the same with the Muslims in the form of a planned human
They portrayed Islam as the religion of bombers,
hijackers, kidnappers and fundamentalists, calling them,
as I have written earlier, "Muslim kidnappers" and
"Muslim fundamentalists" on their media, neglecting the
fact that they also have been indulged in the activities both
individually as well as on government level.
Many countries have been the target of their
'justified bombing' and 'kidnapping'.
Muslims on the contrary, with the exception of a few
so-called people, who portray themselves as Muslims
but their actual character is quite contrary to the
actual behavior of Muslims taught by Islam, do not get
themselves involved in such acts. They always preach
'Hatred with the acts but love with the humans' is the
basic and fundamental philosophy taught to every Muslim
by Islam and this has been the slogan they raised in
The people who thought that Islam teaches hatred towards every
non-Muslim are incorrect.
Respecting each and every person and nation has been the behavior of
Muslims since its revival through the hands of the Holy Prophet (Sall
Allaho alaihe wasallam).
For centuries, we, the Muslims, practiced these principles
in their essence. Nevertheless, we have been mocked at
by calling us "Muslim kidnappers" or "fundamentalists",
while the fundamental concepts of Islam basically provoke peace and
among the different sects of society.
Every non-Muslim should kept in mind that even in these
days Islam is the best religion and its followers are
the best among the followers of the religions.
If they do not like it or its followers, they are free
to dislike them, but degrading the religion and defaming
the believers is a practice they should stop themselves
May Allah guide them.
