This post it a little too late, but anyways, a good advice is a good advice no matter where or when. Yay!
The recent 'movie' called 'Innocence of Muslims' has received worldwide attention recently and naturally, it sparked a violent outrage across the Muslim world. From this point forward, I will refer the 'movie' as Thing because the directing itself and the storyline is an insult to the average human intellect. Thing's quality as a film was so disgustingly poor that I felt stupider for every second that I spent watching a small portion of it.
So basically, Thing tried to paint a non-realistic picture of Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h)'s life. It was clear that whatever the purpose of producing Thing might be, it was definitely not to educate. A very distorted understanding of history coupled with a heart full with hatred towards the great man came out with this idea of a movie. Nevertheless, it should not, in the first place, received such attention from the international community. Simply because it's quality was so poor.
My condolences goes to the embassy of U.S.A for the death of her ambassador. It was not America's fault that there are bigots in their 300 million population nor it was Islam's fault if in our community there are extremists. Those who understand the teachings of Islam will never commit such act.
"Be angry for the Prophet (pbuh), but with the etiquette and manners of the Prophet (pbuh)."
As usual, every time such insult were thrown to Islam, Muslims all around the world will come out in massive demonstrations in every corner of the Muslim world showing to the world how angry we are. We will demand the perpetrator(s) be executed, and we will demand the destruction of America. It was the same script all over again.
And there will be douchebags who will defend the act under the name of freedom of speech.
We muslims should be reminded that the enemies of Islam do not fear the burning tyres, they fear the crowded mosques.
Prophet Muhammad s.a.w was a noble man who empathize, who thinks before he act, who loves others for the sake of Allah. These are the characters that should exist in every man in the 21st century. Not burning tyres, not angry mobs and definitely not killing senselessly, these are definitely NOT the teachings of Islam.
Thank you, random Muslim NGOs in the UK for distributing books explaining to the people the real story, the real personality of our beloved Prophet. Thank you, various contemporary Muslim celebrities and scholars who voiced out against the injustice that was carried out in Libya. Thank you, amazing Muslims all around the world who think rationally and reminded everyone that it doesn't matter how many times we demonstrated our anger, the most important thing is that we ourselves practice the teachings of Islam to the heart.
Before we take our anger to them (i.e. they who do not understand Islam) we should look into ourselves, are we adequate to call ourselves a Muslim?
