You never addressed the root cause of the question " Why Muslims are hated"

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

As Salaam Aleikum,

You never addressed the root cause of the question " Why Muslims are hated". Every one knows Islam is does not teach hatred and is always for peace. So why are a large number of the Muslims behaving improperly. Who is responsible for their behavior? the parents, the society, the schools, the Government? Why people in general outside the Muslim world believe that behavior of the non-Muslims is better than many many Muslim. I am surprised, rather shocked to see despite being born in such a wonderful religion, Islam, many of us do not follow its spirit, we generally to do tolerate others, we are extremists, many of us think that only Muslims are Asharaful Makhlukat and not non-Muslims, we do not believe that others too have the rights to live peacefully.

Since you did not address the root cause of finding out the reason of present-day Muslims being hated, I was not satisfied with your answer.

Why Muslims hated?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, you are absolutely right in all your claims.and every believer should look into his heart and try to figure out why the ones who claim to follow this deen of Truth are so hated and despised in the world today!


Each and every believer is responsible for not representing the Truth of our beautiful deen, neither in letter, nor in spirit, nor by example to our non-muslim brethren. It is indeed unfortunate that we have not fulfilled the duty and the responsibility that we took upon ourselves when we declared belief in our Lord and His Last and Final Messenger (saws)!


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imraan verse 110: Ye (believers) are the best of peoples evolved for mankind enjoining what is right forbidding what is wrong and believing in Allah.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 78: And strive in His cause as ye ought to strive (with sincerity and under discipline): He has chosen you and has imposed no difficulties on you in religion; it is the cult of your father Abraham. It is He (Allah) Who has named you Muslims both before and in this (Revelation); that the Messenger may be a witness for you, and ye be witnesses for mankind! So establish regular Prayer give regular Charity and hold fast to Allah! He is your Protector the Best to protect and the Best to help!


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah verse 71: The believers men and women are protectors one of another: they enjoin what is just and forbid what is evil: they observe regular prayers practice regular charity and obey Allah and His Messenger. On them will Allah pour His Mercy: for Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise.


Your Question: You never addressed the root cause of the question " Why Muslims are hated".

Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, in our humble opinion, if there is one root cause that glares our failure to truly become the witnesses of Truth to our brethren in humanity who do not believe, then it has to be our gross disobedience to the guidance of the Glorious Quran and the Sunnah and example of our beloved Prophet, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws)! The truth is that our deeds and acts in general are in absolute contrast to the teachings of Allah and His Messenger (saws)!!!


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 13 Surah Raad verse 11: Verily never will Allah change the condition of a people until they change it themselves (with their own souls).


Dear and Beloved Brother, there is only one way to initiate this change regarding the image of the believers; and that is to enforce the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah in its entirety, firstly in our individual, and then in our communal lives. Unless and until each of us starts this process of change and obedience and submission, there is absolutely no way to fulfill the heavy duty and responsibility our Lord has laid upon us as believers in Him and the Last Day.


Allah says in the Holy Quran: Chapter 16, Surah An-Nahl Ayat 125: Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and excellent admonition and argue with people in the best manner. Your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Way and who is Rightly guided.


Beloved Brother, Allah Subhanah has blessed your heart to develop the pain regarding the present state of the Muslim Ummah, and this very pain is the first step towards striving to bring about a change! It is indeed the Mercy of Allah that there are a number of brothers and sisters who have experienced this pain and started the process to bring about a change in their lives and commit themselves to the covenant they have made to their Lord. Allah Alone Knows how long this process of change will take, but it is the promise of Allah that there will come an age again when the Word and the Deen of our Lord will regain the glory that prevailed at the time of the Rightly Guided companions of the Messenger of Allah (saws).


The decision you, I, and every believer has to make is what role will we fulfill in bringing about this change! We might or might not see the fruits of this revolution, but Allah is my witness, our striving in His Cause will determine whether we are successful in our afterlife or not!


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verses

54 O ye who believe! If any from among you turn back from his faith soon will Allah produce a people whom He will love as they will love Him lowly with the believers mighty against the rejecters fighting in the way of Allah and never afraid of the reproaches of such as find fault. That is the Grace of Allah which He will bestow on whom He pleaseth: and Allah encompasseth all and He knoweth all things.

55 Your (real) friends are (no less than) Allah His Messenger and the (fellowship of) believers, those who establish regular prayers and regular charity and they bow down humbly (in worship).

56 As to those who turn (for friendship) to Allah His Messenger and the (fellowship of) believers; it is the fellowship of Allah that must certainly triumph.

57 O ye who believe! Take not for friends and protectors those who take your religion for a mockery or sport whether among those who received the Scripture before you or among those who reject faith; but fear ye Allah if ye have Faith (indeed).


My dear and beloved Brother in Islam, there is absolutely no guarantee that true submission to the guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah will bring about every person to love the believers or the deen of Islam, for not even the Prophets of Allah were spared the enmity and hatred of those who refused to believe! But what is indeed guaranteed in following the Straight Path is the Mercy and Grace and Peace, and Tranquility, and above all, the Forgiveness of our Lord, not only in the life of this short and transient world but also in the eternal and everlasting life of the Hereafter.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
