WHY AGAINST ISLAM ALONE?

 

Jews are notorious for disobeying their prophets.  As a result of their disobedience to their own Prophet Moses (peace be upon him), they were deserted to wander around through the deserts.  They attribute to Jesus, Solomon, David and other prophets (peace be upon them) things which undermine the pure personality of those great men whom Allah had granted infallibility, and selected them to convey His Message to mankind.  Even Virgin Mary (peace be upon her) did not escape the dirty accusations made by the Jews.  In spite of all these, the Jews of America pose themselves as the defenders of Christians and Christianity.in the Arab world.  By assuming such a role, they only want to sow dissension between Muslims and Christians.

When Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) migrated to Madinah Munawwarah, he did not treat the Jews as enemies.  On the other hand, he signed a treaty with them conceding their rights as followers of a Divine Revelation.  But these Jews did not abide by the terms of the treaty and collaborated with the infidels and the hypocrites against him.  They tried on many occasions to kill him even though they were fully aware of the truthfulness of his mission.  They even tried to poison him.  But Allah alone saved him from their treachery.

When this is their history, there is nothing new if some Jewish woman insults Islam and Muslims by putting up posters depicting the Prophet of Islam as a pig.  Na’oozubillah!  This only betrays the spite of the Jewish mind against Islam and the Muslims.  But Muslims never, in their history, have insulted any prophet of Allah.  They only act on the basis of Islam which teaches its followers to respect all prophets of Allah.

This Jewish woman who migrated from Russia will find some human rights activists from the Western world coming to her defense, and will be set free on one pretext or another; just as the Australian Jew who set the Al-Aqsa mosque on fire was freed.  We have also seen Goldstein, the Jew who killed several worshippers at Hebron Mosque being left unhurt.

 

This Jew was described initially as mentally deranged and then subsequently emerged as a hero for the Jewish nation.  This is something which Western countries including the United States should have condemned.

The present desecration of the Prophet of Islam comes after the blasphemy on the heels of sports shoes, marketed by NIKE - a U.S. firm, on which the word ALLAH was inscribed in Arabic.

Well, why are Muslims, their prophets and their religious symbols alone targeted for desecration in a civilization which claims  to be the citadel of justice and democracy?  Why don’t we hear any condemnation of these acts of blasphemy and desecration from the Western world?

Rasoolullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) had truly said:All unbelievers are one single community” against Islam.

Allah says in the Holy Quran:  “You shall certainly be tried and tested in your possessions and in your personal selves; and you shall certainly hear much that will grieve you, from the people of the book and the polytheists.  But if you persevere patiently and guard against evil, then that will be a determining factor in all affairs.” (Surah Ali-Imraan : 186).
