Muslim's Please Consider This...

I have just been catching up on the news. Not an activity I enjoy at all. Discovered the Muslim world is rioting over some American video which proceeds to make fun of Muhammad (peace be upon him.) Muslim Brothers and Sisters before you take to arms, violence and murder consider this....

Allah explains to us how to deal with those who would ridicule our faith..

And when they hear idle talk they 'TURN ASIDE FROM IT' and say: We shall have our deeds and you shall have your deeds; 'PEACE BE ON YOU' we do not desire the ignorant.
( Al-Qasas, Chapter 28, Verse 55)

And the servants of the Beneficent Allah are they who walk on the earth in humbleness, and when the 'IGNORANT ADDRESS THEM THEY SAY, PEACE'.
( Al-Furqan, Chapter 25, Verse 63)

Take to 'FORGIVENESS' and enjoin good and 'TURN ASIDE' from the ignorant.
( Al-Araf, Chapter 7, Verse 199)

And do not abuse those whom they call upon besides Allah, lest exceeding the limits they should abuse Allah out of ignorance. Thus have We made fair seeming to every people their deeds; then to their Lord shall be their return, so He will inform them of what they did.
( Al-Anaam, Chapter 6, Verse 108)

We are not to abuse the faith or beliefs of others, we are to turn away from those who insult out of ignorance, we are not to enter into confrontation with those who slander, ridicule, or challenge our belief but we are instructed to 'turn aside' and wish them PEACE, not fight, or kill them for what they think, or say. Allah commands us to PRACTICE FORGIVENESS not practice violence and hate.

The Quran illustrates the fate of messengers... Muhammad peace be upon him was branded a liar, mentally ill, a soothsayer, a traitor and a renegade. Abraham (pbuh) was outcast and thrown into a pit of fire, Moses (pbuh) was accused of being a magician and a liar, Mary mother of Jesus was accused of being an unchaste immoral woman. Jesus (pbuh) had all manner of lies and slander hurled at him,

Allah informs us some of HIS prophets and messengers where killed unjustly (Al-Baqara, Chapter 2, Verse 61) and Surely (as for) those who disbelieve in the communications of Allah and slay the prophets unjustly and slay those among men who enjoin justice, announce to them a painful chastisement.
( Aal-e-Imran, Chapter 3, Verse 21)

We do not find Allah calling us to rise up, riot and murder. Allah is also often the target of much ridicule, and abuse but never have I heard of a Muslim challenging film makers, animators, authors, public figures, or any other form of media, when that happens.

If We are to attack upon the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) being defamed then why do we not attack when any other of Allah's prophets are portrayed this way.

If you care about the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) care about what Allah chose him to do, To deliver the Message of the Quran. show your respect, love and admiration for Muhammad by embracing, adhering and upholding the message of Allah just as Muhammad (pbuh) observed that message himself.

That's what we are trying to do!

But there's a war going on here, no body bothers to listen to what the next person is trying to say. Everyone is just being offensive and is hyped up!

How do you propose to tell people to calm down when all there getting is abusive remarks in return, we have been patient but others are making use of our tolerance!

Thanks, will consider it! Insha Allah! :)
