Watched a programme on TV earlier on with Nadz, ' Dispatches: Undercover Mosques'. Its about this Islamic extremists who preaches about Islam here there and everywhere...especially in Birmingham.
I find some of the things the men talked about are a little disturbing. For example:
1) Muslims MUST HATE all the disbelievers.
I dont think we should hate them...but we should be able to live peacefully next to them and make them understand that Islam is not a violent religion.
2) Jihad is the way of the true Islamic way of life.
My knowledge not Jihad is not much, i have to admit that. But if im not mistaken, it is said that everything we do in the name of Allah is in a way considered Jihad. When we obey the regulations and teachings, we are doing Jihad. Isnt it not like that? I feel that the programme just now is giving ppl wrong impression abt Islam. Our religion is a peaceful religion...so I dont see why people have to put themselves in the middle of everyone and blow themselves and kill all the innocent ones as well in order to get to their 'main target'.
3) They believe that Islam will overtake UK and US and be the 'rulers' of these countries
The extremists believe that we shouldnt live according to the UK or US laws...and shouldnt believe / listen to the Whitehouse, House of Commons etc etc...Then it is such a wonder why do they chose to migrate and stay here if they are not happy with the system here. Thus it is said that Muslim should be more progressive and do better than all the ppl here.
4) All Jews should be killed
I dont think that is up to us to do that. its not in our power to do that.
5) Women will always be in 'deficient' (the exact word they used)
They said women will never be equal in Islam. Women, no matter how high their position or education is, will always be in 'deficient' compared to men. I thought women should be treated equal to men...although each will specialized in different things. hmm.
6) Girls should be hit if they refuse to wear hijab by the age of 9. And children should be hit if they refuse to pray.
I am aware that children should be hit if they refuse to pray even after being told to do so a number of times. The thing is, how much or hard are we allowed to hit?? All these is a lil disturbing...i dont know.
7) We should HATE girls who are not wearing hijab.
And the list of things that they talked about goes on and on.
Imagine if this extremists manage to gain power over UK and US...what will happen to all of
them? Mass killing? Beheading?
Can you imagine what will happen to the innocent children who dont really understand whats happening around them?? what will happen to the men and women...will they be force to believe in Islam...will they be killed...tortured...???? I cant imagine how dreadful the world will be.
They talked about the teaching of Islam full of emotion...talked about the enemies with hatred and anger written on their face and heard from their voice. Jews will turn to pigs and slaughtered like pigs during judgement days....all these are v.v. scary!!
I thought Muslims are supposed to spread the teachings of Islams gracefully. Not with hate...but with love and in a peaceful manner.
Islam = suppose to be able to forgive others...give chances for the disbelievers to learn about Islam if they want to and allow room for changes.
I may be wrong in some of the things that Ive typed here. DO CORRECT ME wherever im wrong...but then, why do some of them interpret the teachings of Islam in such an extreme manner? Why must the extremists make it sound as if Islam is a religion of vengeance of what happened in the past???
Its something to think about...and with of all 'them' out there...it is no surprise that the world is constantly in a state of conflict...especially against Islam. So, who do we blame????
