Does Islam need Power to be Recognized?
هل يحتاج الإسلام إلى قوة ليعرف ؟
Al-Imam al-Hussein the Martyr of Karbala’, was in his way to al-Kufah, he met the great poet, al-Firazdaq. So he asked him, how do you see the Muslims in al-Kufa? After a long silence, al-Firazdaq said: Their hearts are with you, but their swords against you. Muslims these days are in serious need for the hearts and the sword powers to regain dignity. Even though I strongly support the first option. Where development is mostly needed mentally, culturally, and psychologically. But the world does not respect the materially weak nation. The power of Islam is its simplicity and noble spiritual ethics rather than material power. Others are becoming more and more aware of Islamic faith simplicity and therefore convert in large numbers everywhere freely. An American asked a Jewish anti-Islam journalist after lecturing and establishing a webpage to attacking Islam (Qur’an, Sunnah, and Muslims). Some of his points are logical though. Robert Spencer, was suspicious of truth about most Muslims reject terrorism. Someone asked him: If you are attacking Islam : Why do so many people convert to Islam? His answer was:
”There are many attractive elements of the religion. I think that its adamantine certainties appeal to many people who are disgusted with the current relativism and amorality of the Western world. Also there are many rich and grand aspects of Islamic history and culture which also make the religion attractive today. The global jihad against the West today also helps Islam gather converts in the West from among groups that feel themselves to be oppressed or marginalized. Conversions have been stimulated by successful, if often fanciful, Muslim efforts to present Islam as a religion free of the sins of the West — particularly racial discrimination. We don’t need to defend Islam, Islam finds its way.
Muslims today can be described as the fish for someone’s dinner, grilled on fire, or skinned by knife. But the fish might stop somewhere between the mouth and the stomach, and may kill the eater.
The experience of religion through history can be explained by social scientist who studied religion, as a cause of many human actions. Their findings show that religion is the factor of unity where people can come together and form a strong unity. But in the same time Religion plays the factor of disunity and makes people in the same nation fight each other. Examples will be given in other article.
