Eye on common sense: Is violent approach a solution for the anti-Islamic film?


If we keep this horrific routine in all the Muslim countries then we are no better than what we condemn. I know that the Muslim world stands by me when I say that if Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was alive at this time he would have never done any protest such as that happening around the world.

At this time of distrust and chaos around the world especially in the Middle East the Muslim world needs  to remember the time when the Prophet Muhammad  (peace and blessings of God be upon Him) was stoned  in the city of Taif and bled to the extent that his shoes  were soaked with blood.  At that time Angel Gabriel came to him saying that at Prophet’s one word he had the ability and permission from God to join the two mountains and crush the people who lived between them.  What did our injured Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) say ?  ’NO’.  He showed patience and forbearance because God will help the same people come to the right path. If our most honored and respectable Prophet can forgive   the people who caused his blood to stain his clothes and shoes then who are we to take revenge on others ? The main point of this film and cartoons like it in the past is to provoke Muslims to act in the way that this provocative propaganda predicts. Muslims need to stay strong and even though it is tough it is the way of our beloved Prophet (PBUH).

It was the same Prophet who said a thousand times to love and care for your neighbors. Then who are we to go burn down embassies and cause a chaos on our streets and be a problem to our neighbors and fellow humans.

It was our beloved Prophet who told us to love and care for our guests because they are a blessing and honor from our God upon us. Then who are we to murder innocent people such as the US ambassador and diplomats who are guests in the country ?

It was our beloved Prophet who said that even if one is at war he or she should not hurt the plants and the trees. It was our beloved Prophet who said to pick up a banana peel or a stick or any such obstacle from a street that can cause harm to another. Then who are we to block streets and protest by burning other’s cars, by abusing other’s property, and stopping one from proceeding to his or her work.

I believe, as a member of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community which wholly condemns the violence in Libya, Egypt, and the Middle East, am not alone in saying that it is upon the Muslim community on the whole to stand up at this hard time to truly portray the true teachings of the Prophet Muhammad when it is hard to do so when our feelings are hurt. This is the time to depict the true teachings and show that all the things that the hateful film and cartoon portray are wrong.

If we keep this horrific routine in all the Muslim countries then we are no better than what we condemn. I know that the Muslim world stands by me when I say that if Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was alive at this time he would have never done any protest such as that happening around the world.  Then it is upon us to keep his tradition and teachings alive and stop this insanity and show the world that we are the true followers of the most beloved, humble, respectful, forgiving, and respectable man. It is now time more than ever to follow the example of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) rather than giving into these baits. Muslims need to be an example to others that what these films and cartoons portray is wrong. We need to follow the Holy Qur’an and the Prophet when it is said for Muslims to walk away from those insulting their faith and pray for them and ourselves.”

In response to a question about the violent protests following the release of the film, Ahmadiyya Khalifa Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad at a media briefing in U.K. said that such protests were wrong and that the killing of any innocent people, including ambassadors and diplomats was completely contrary to the teachings of Islam. He said that all protests must be conducted within the scope of the law and remain peaceful.

Ahmadiyya Khalifa added “Muslims need to remember that extremism is not the answer to such provocation. Instead the answer is to reform oneself and to respond to the curses of the opponents by sending salutations on the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). And in worldly terms the Muslim world needs to unite and Muslims who live in western countries should fully utilise the power of their right to vote.”
