What do I love most about non-Muslims?
When they have bigger respect to Muslims more than Muslims have to themselves.
My non-muslim friend accidentally touched my Quran, and she went like..
‘Oh my God, I’m so so sorry! I just touched the Quran! I didn’t mean to! Oh my God!’.
So I guess, exaggerating is better than never. Get what I mean?
Cos there goes my Muslim friend, who accidentally touched the Quran without the wudhu’ and went
Or another time when I was praying, then a friend came in. She sat down and did her own stuff. I can’t hear any noise, like I was alone in the room. Then our fellow Muslim friend came in and broke the silence with a long ‘heyyyyy!’, while I was there, my forehead touching the ground, trying to communicate with the Lord Creator. Funny then cos she got a reply from the timid friend, ‘ssssshhhhh! She’s praying! Don’t talk.’ Shame on us as the reply was from a non-Muslim. CAN YOU SEE THE DIFFERENCE?
And I do not think it’s fun trying to read my du’a when there are loud conversations running behind me.
Worse when they came from the same religion as I do. Showing just how less they care.
I do understand when sometimes non-muslims do things that are quite rude when we pray or whatever we do, but, just forget it. It is just that they have no idea what on earth are we doing! This is when explanations plays a great role. Use all the saliva you have, storm out all the titbits and infos you have left somewhere in the brain.
(I love explanations. They make you go all out. They make you try hard to make people understand what is the meaning of ibadah, or what are the differences between fasting in Ramadhan and fasting on Mondays and Thursdays.)
How can we expect some respect from others when we ourselves do not give the respect that others need?
To earn respect, you give respect.
Give and take.
When you yourself do not respect your own religion, don’t get all flamed up when others show little respect to it. Its shameful, and strictly unnecessary.
I am just typing whatever running in my little brain.
There were times when Navin woke me up for Asar because I overslept. And she even knows the name of all the prayers and their times.
If class finishes at 2, sometimes she jokingly went ‘Nina, run run. You’re late for Zuhr. It’s a sin, you know?’
Its sad when we see Muslims around us who does not care less about Islam. I’m not asking for a full attention or anything, but at least show some love for the religion.
A dude who thought that saying ‘I have my period all year long, and that’s why I never pray’ to a non-Muslim is a joke, needs a serious self-reflecting therapy or some kind of brainwashing. Or maybe he needs real thick red blood spurting out of his own anus all year long, non-stop.
From the way I see it, in every single chance we get to show others how beautiful this deen is, then we shall use it as wisely as possible. Chances do not come everyday like the sun, they only come once in a while.
Maybe we do not get any money by converting someone to Islam, but of course, what a big deed it will be for the sake of our own selves and the Deen.
Now this post is not about encouraging you to try to convert every single non-muslims out there, but just a post reminding you, and even beg some of you to just behave, and show others what Islam is really about.
