The way the western media spread propaganda is ridiculous and the way Muslims expose these propagandas is awesome. When the media spread propaganda against Islam, the non-Muslims easily fall for it and when evidences are shoved intheir faces, they play blind to it as they do not want theirillusions destroyed.
Muslims ask rational questions against the propaganda ofthe western media. Asking them where’s the nuclearweapon they claimed they want to dispossess Iraq of, how
come a building made of steel melted in the twinkle of an eyedue to a plane crashing therein, body of the dead bodies in
the Orlando shooting.
The Qur’an making it clear that mankind is in loss exceptthose who have faith, do good deeds and join together in themutual teaching of truth (Wata wasaw bil haqq), patience
and constancy, the conscious Muslim strives for the truthand do not believe everything hook, line and sinker.
The non-Muslim on the other hand is Islamophobic. Being perplexed by the sporadic growth of Islam in recent times, he
sees Islam as a threat to his way of life which includesdrinking, homosexuality to mention but a few. Such personwould not hesitate to believe in propaganda spread against
Islam. I will however not forget that there are many amongnon-Muslims who recognise these propagandas and exposethem, May Allah guide them to the right path. (Ameen)
The atheist sees Islam as a threat to his ridiculous belief, thegay Islam as a threat to their disgusting sexual life, the onewho charges interest sees Islam as a threat to his business
while the owners of distillery and brewery companies seeIslam as a threat.
In other to stop Islam, they resort to
propaganda and raising false flag. Unfortunately, these vicesare rampant in nations where many adherents of Christianity
claim the nation is a Christian nation yet the Bible sanctionsall the afore listed vices.
Let me give you a parable, this I learnt when I sat with theelders and I was given cups of knowledge and wisdom todrink from.
Imagine an old woman who doesn’t know how electric bulbworks. She gets to visit her son in the city. The son beingaway, there was electricity supply and the electric bulb in
her room gets On. In a bid to switch it off, she begins to blowand blow and blow at the bulb, her blowing, obviously, arefruitless attempts such is the case of the enemies of Islam, So
“They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their
mouths, but Allah will perfect His light, although the
disbelievers dislike it.

The average non-Muslim Westerner (except those who aresincere) is such that the brain is filled with crap andpropaganda resulting from the TV,unfortunately, this has Those who want peace should give peace. If you can’t give
peace, you don’t want peace. Aligning Islam with terrorism isa great advantage to the terrorists. “Stereotypes arecounterproductive and would lead to higher recruitment into
A non-Muslims sees you and say, you Muslims have killedagain, won’t you condemn their action? Why is he expectingyou to condemn their action if he truly believes that’s you’re
a part of them?
At this juncture, we do not need orange and pineappleSheikhs who are quick to start posting and tweeting beingsorry for the acts of an ignorant person, sending condolences alone to a certain class of people, standing in solidarity withthem.
Such sheikhs should be taught to start sending
condolences to the dead in Gaza, the raped in Bosnia, thedeformed of Iraq, the shattered of Syria and Co.
Terrorist attacks in the west happen everyday in some othercountries. If one life doesn’t matter, no life matter, if one lifematters, all lives matter.
When any ignorant person commits a crime, We Muslims donot owe no swine eater, gay, atheist, any apology.
Even when your wife is not covered, when you don’t pray, you automatically become a Sheikh and devout Muslim whenyou commit a crime.
