  1. Thank you for posting, Soheir. My greatest fear in what happened yesterday in Paris is that it will create more hate and discrimination. IS is a a perversion, let’s not blame Moslims or refugees for their actions.

  2. Smiles.. my friend Soheir..
    the illness of the
    heArt that
    never grows
    Love is the issue
    here and no specific
    religion or country
    as this is a Universal
    human problem
    wherever love
    does not grow..
    there are many humans
    living in the U.S. who feel
    this way about their own
    country who would Love
    to see the government here
    fold up and go away..
    not realizing the
    teat of survival
    they hold
    to their mouth
    everyday.. but these
    poor folks in spirit..
    also have little
    true Love in
    their heARt or they
    would be promoting Unity.. like
    your are doing here my friend.. instead
    of division… strife.. all stuff relating
    to fear.. hate.. aggression.. violence
    and warring ways of life.. sadly science
    shows that humans who never learn
    the Love of Empathy may have no
    cure at all.. i hope for more.. but
    from what i see in life..
    these barbarian acts
    are just a symptom
    of Barbarians..
    who have
    no heart..
    the best cure for
    terrorism of all kinds
    including all types of slavery..
    subjugation.. control.. repression
    oppression.. for greedy rule is to
    Love our children and the children
    of other folks.. the best we can
    to grow a garden of human
    Love Stronger and
    with less truly weak
    weeds of human beings
    who would rather kill
    and die
    than Live
    with Allah now..
    Allah is here now..
    and with heart now..
    there is no greater
    reward than
    the gift now..
    the connection
    with all others
    and Nature for those
    who grow a soul in Life
    of a empty
    wish after
    Love lessons now.. is the cure
    to all these human nightmares
    of fear.. hate.. misery.. of human suffering…:)

  3. I too feel that killing is such outdated thinking. We all have to stop and think, stop and think, stop and think, stop the blame game, rethink our way of living, and start building peace in our daily lives. Thanks for visiting my blog and following me. Kind regards, Agnes

  4. Anyone who learns about the prophetic message finds that it maintained human dignity and raised his status, as human beings, whether Muslims or not, are the offspring of Adam. Allah the Almighty honored all humanity by saying, “We have honored the sons of Adam, provided them with transport on land and sea; given them for sustenance things good and pure; and conferred on them special favors, above a great part of Our creation“. (Al-Israa, 17: 70)

    Hence, all people have rights as human beings before Allah the Almighty. Yet, they, before Allah, are distinguished by fearing their Lord, having faith, and adopting good morals. Moreover, Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was consistent in showing this clearly in his behavior and dealing with non-Muslims.

    In an authentic tradition, Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)is reported to have said: “Whenever you see a funeral procession, stand up till the procession goes ahead of you”. [1] One day a funeral procession passed in front of him and he stood up. When he was told that it was the coffin of a Jew, he said, “Is it not a living being (soul)?” Also, Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) used to visit non-Muslims who were sick. Hence, the Prophet (Peace be upon him)visited Abu Talib in his sickness, and he also visited a sick Jewish boy. [2]

    He (Peace be upon him) observed people’s rights in terms of good neighborliness, as he said: ““The best of companions with Allah is the one who is best to his companion, and the best of neighbors with Him is the one who is best to his neighbor”.[3] The tradition included every neighbor, even if he was a non-Muslim.

    Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) did not come to deprive those who did not follow him of freedom. Instead, he treated them with a rare form of tolerance. The following are some of the most important principles of Prophet Muhammad’s (Peace be upon him) treatment of non-Muslims:

    There is no compulsion in religion:

    Although Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and his companions believed that it is right to adopt Islam – as it is the seal of the previous messages – they never tried to force any one to adopt Islam. The Noble Qur’an highlighted this meaning clearly by saying: “There is no compulsion in religion as truth stands out clear from error”. (Al-Baqarah, 2: 256)

    Therefore, no one is forced to adopt Islam. This is so, even if the one who uses force was a father who wants goodness for his children, and even if the one who was compelled was a child who has no doubt about his father’s pity for him. Even the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) himself did not force people to adopt this religion, and Allah the Almighty says, “If it had been your Lord’s will, they would all have believed- all who are on earth! Will you then compel mankind, against their will, to believe?” (Yunus, 10: 99)

    Islam not only gave non-Muslims freedom to retain their religion, but it also allowed them to practice their ceremonies and preserved their places of worship. The Prophet (Peace be upon him) prevented his companions from disturbing Christian clergymen in their hermitages, and he never assaulted a non-Muslim place of worship. His companions, and the caliphs after him, understood this meaning very well; so, they recommended their military leaders not to seize or demolish their places of worship. Also, Islam gave them the freedom to follow their laws related to marriage, divorce, and the like.

    The values of justice with the other:

    Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) ordered us to deal fairly with all people whether Muslims or non-Muslims. This is mentioned in the Noble Qur’an, “Allah does command you to render back your Trusts to those to whom they are due; and when you judge between man and man, that you judge with justice”. (An-Nisaa’, 4:58)

    Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) received the revelation and applied it in the greatest manner, as he was ordered to be just with all people without looking to their status, race, religion or ancestry. They were all equal, even if the person who had a certain right was unfair to the Muslims; he would still be given his right. The Noble Qur’an ordered the Messenger (Peace be upon him) to rule fairly if Ahl al-Kitab (i.e. the Jews and the Christians) choose him as an arbitrator, “If you judge, judge in equity between them” (Al-Maida, 5: 42). In more than thirty traditions, Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) emphasized the right of al-Mu’ahad (the one who has a covenant with the Muslims), among which is the following: “Whoever killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims, shall not smell the smell of Paradise though its smell is perceived from a distance of forty years”.[4] He also says, “Beware, if anyone wrongs a contracting man, or diminishes his right, or forces him to work beyond his capacity, or takes from him anything without his consent, I shall plead for him (the victimized) on the Day of Judgment.”[5] He also says, “If anyone kills a man whom he grants protection prematurely, Allah will forbid him to enter Paradise.”[6] Muhammad (Peace be upon him) prohibited torturing anyone, even if he did not adopt Islam.

    Therefore, he (Peace be upon him) forbade torturing any human being whether Muslim or non-Muslim. He says, “Allah the Almighty tortures those who torture people in this life”.[7] Muhammad (Peace be upon him) also preserved and guaranteed the security of non-Muslims’ lives, wealth and honor in the Islamic community. So, no one is permitted to hurt them whether Muslim or not, as long as they residents of Islamic territories.

    Good treatment for Non-Muslims:

    The teachings of Muhammad (Peace be upon him)left an important principle, i.e. a Muslim treats all people well, as he (Peace be upon him) said: “I have only been sent to perfect good characteristics”.[8] And in another narration we find “to reform manners”. Noble manners are equal with every one; the Muslim and the non-Muslim. Coexistence, understanding, and co-operation among nations and people are greatly needed by humanity. So, Muhammad (Peace be upon him) ordered mercy in his message, and included every aspect of it as well as all forms of good treatment. The Noble Quran says: “Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loves those who are just.” (Al-Mumtahanah: 60: 8)

    The scholars of Islam explained kindness in the verse by saying: ‘It is mercy on the weak of them, giving money to the poor, feeding the hungry, dressing the poor, and talking kindly with them. This should be done in a merciful and gentle way and not in a fearful and humiliating way, tolerate bad neighbors – with the ability of removing it kindly but not fearfully or greedily. In addition, we should ask Allah to guide them and grant them happiness. Also, we should offer them advice in all aspects of their life and religious matters and guard them if anyone wants to harm them”.[9]

    This good treatment is confirmed in the case of family relations, and it becomes obligatory in the case of parental relationship. Hence, Asmaa’ the daughter of Abu Bakr mentions the following and says, “My mother came to visit me at the time of the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) and she was a disbeliever. So I consulted the Messenger of Allah, (Peace be upon him) and asked him, ‘My mother wants to visit me and expects me to treat her kindly; should I uphold the ties of kinship with my mother?’ He said, ‘Yes, uphold the ties of kinship with your mother”.[10]

    Also, when the delegation of Najran, who were Christians, came to Muhammad (Peace be upon him)in Medina, they entered his mosque in the afternoon, and it was the time for  their prayer. So, they started to pray in his mosque and the Muslims wanted to stop them but the Muhammad (Peace be upon him)  said: ‘Let them pray’. So, they faced the east and prayed. Also, the mother of the believers ‘Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her) said: “The Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) passed away and his shield was pledged to a Jewish man in exchange for thirty measures of barley, and this was for the expenses of his (i.e. the Prophet (Peace be upon him) children”.[11]

    Thus, Muhammad (Peace be upon him) ordered the Muslims to take care of Ahl adh-Dhimma (the Jews and the Christians) who live among them. So, if any non-Muslim needs money, they should provide him, as the state is responsible for the poor; including Muslims and Ahl adh-Dhimma. The state is responsible to provide suitable living conditions for them and for all those they are responsible for, because they are citizens in an Islamic state. Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said, ‘You are all guardians, and each of you is responsible for those in his trust’.[12] When the second caliph ‘Umar was in Al-Sham and he passed by a group of Christian people who were suffering from leprosy, he ordered that they be given alms and food.

    The freedom to work and earn:

    Muhammad (Peace be upon him) made a covenant that the non-Muslims can work and earn in Muslim countries; by working for others or for themselves, in addition to having any career they choose and economic activities. Their state is equal to that of the Muslims, and they have the right to buy and sell and deal with society. They can also have financial dealings, but should avoid usury. They have the right to deal with anything except for usury and buying and selling wines, pigs, and anything that is harmful to society and which Islam has prohibited. Islam banned these things because of the damage that results either on them or upon their community. They also enjoy other freedoms in terms of possessing goods and manufacturing crafts and other items.

  5. Muslim minorities are the first victims of terrorism throughout the world.

    The longer the War On Terror continues the larger the threat of terrorism has become, would think they’d realise something’s not working

  7. wrongdoers are in every country every religion as Satan promised Almighty Allah that he will misguide human beings from good deeds as revenge for being thrown out and degraded. Hence to blame any religion or its followers is just not right. Islam is the religion of peace and tolerance like all other religions. Not any prophet preached his followers to kill, rob or be treacherous . May we all be forgiven and spread harmony , amen

  8. It is so tragic that we cannot accept and respect people for what they are and what they do instead of hiding our own needs and failures and losses behind fundamentalist stereotypes.
    It must be so painful and distressing to real Muslims to be judged by the behaviour of fanatics.
