While it may have been written 14 centuries ago, the letter Khalifah Ali ibn Abi Talib wrote to Malik Ashtar is just as, if not even more relevant to us today.
May Allah SWT help us return to the noble wisdom of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, and his loyal companions, may Allah bless them.
This is an appeal to the media, if you want to be taken seriously, stop giving hate preachers unnecessary publicity, that only fuels their hateful agendas.
Why is it that this “man”, who represents no one but his sadistic cult, is so often called upon to be interviewed by the BBC and other media channels, whenever they want a Muslim spokesperson? Is it any wonder some misguided individuals indulge in conspiracy theories about the media, when this is how it behaves?
Giving hate preachers free publicity through the mainstream media only fuels their callous agendas. By doing so, media channels are themselves contributing to the crimes of such cowards against society and our Human Family.
A must watch! Video highlighting a small fraction of the immense contribution Muslims have made serving in the British Armed Forces.
Please watch, learn and share…
Jabir heard the Prophet (peace be upon him) say:
A Muslim is he from whose hand and tongue the Muslims are safe. (Muslim 14)
Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: A Muslim is one from whose tongue and hand the Muslims are safe and a believer is one in whom people place their trust in regard to their life and wealth. (Al-Tirmidhi 3)
Narrated Abdullah bin Amr:
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “A Muslim is the one who avoids harming Muslims with his tongue and hands. And a Muhajir (emigrant) is the one who gives up (abandons) all what Allah has forbidden.” (Al-Bukhari 1:9)
Our sincerest condolences to family and friends of the unarmed man, brutally martyred in Woolwich. We will be remembering you in our prayers.
Violent thugs who callously murder people are not serving any god, they are outside the pale of all the religions of our Human Family. Neither Islam nor any other religion sanctions what these evil men have done. Far from it, Islam totally and utterly condemns murder and terrorism. Whatever they may think in their own deranged minds, these men are not Muslims, there is nothing at all Islamic about them.
We sincerely hope these murderers will be given the maximum possible sentence under British Justice.
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem:
“Now among His signs are the night and the day, as well as the sun and the moon: [hence,] adore not the sun or the moon, but prostrate yourselves in adoration before God, who has created them – if it is Him whom you [really] worship. And though some be too proud [to listen to this call], they who [in their hearts] are with thy Sustainer extol His limitless glory by night and by day, and never grow weary [thereof].”
~ Holy Qur’an 41:37-38 (M. Asad)
