What Islam is Not!

This is one of my very old write-ups.

I was curious, so I did a google search, to find if this is listed.

To my sadness, I found lots of links that present Islam in an abusive language. Allah Kareem!

Today, amid a growingly aggressive and Islamophobic media, there is need to present Islam as it is. 

Thought of re-posting this with some modifications for the benefit of my readers.  

* Not an invention of Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم but the Glorious Revelation of Almighty Allah.

* Not a ‘religion’ among other religions but a Unique Way of Life, the Clear Code of Conduct from the Maker to the made.

* Not an emotional belief cut off from the realities of life but the Divine Guidance that is life in itself.

* Not a tradition of a bygone era to be labeled as out-dated but the Natural Way that continues to be post-modern in every age.

* Not a chilly creed to be locked in lifeless souls but a Revolutionary Creed that breathes life into souls making them brave & courageous, dignified & respectful.

* Not designed to make people extremists or terrorists but perfectly fine-tuned to establish peace, justice and brotherhood among mankind.

* Not a call to become ascetic, to shun the world but a call to use the world, to explore the universe, to live in the thunder and rhythm of life.

* Not a bunch of beliefs that deny women of their rights but the World’s Pioneer that honored women by liberating them and giving them their human rights.

* Not addressed to a sect, a nation or a race but addressed to all sects, all nations, to entire humanity.

* Not meant for giving temporary solutions but meant for providing lasting solutions.

* Not just designed to provide regional and national solutions but designed and destined to provide solutions at the global level as well.

* Not directed to solve only a part of the problem but directed to solve the totality of the problem.

* Not against any community or religion but Against All Kinds of Oppressors and violations.

* Not interested in changing man’s outer look but interested in transforming man’s inner self.

* Not a ‘private affair’ between God & man, nor an isolation from the society but a system that is powered to prevail in the society over all kinds of falsehood.

* Not leading its followers to the narrowness of mosques but an Inspiration to spread, far & wide, into the vastness of the globe extending the wings of its healing message to a spiritually-challenged humanity.

* Not in its nature to show mirages but the Divine Light that brings forth man from the depths of darkness to the glowing Light of Truth.

* Not just an alternative to ‘consider’ but the Only Way Out, the Only Hope of mankind.

Jazakallaahu Khayra for reading this post.
