By The Prophet of Life
I call on all Muslims to stand up for Islam. Find people who are non-Muslims and tell them about the good things that are a part of Islam. Be an example of a good Muslim and a good person. Let them know that terrorist organizations like Boko Haram and ISIS / ISIL don’t speak for Islam, The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), or Allah.
Know that the media, all media, everywhere in the world, thrives on bad news. Disasters, murders and scandal fuel the media because they attract people’s attention. The more people who are attracted, the higher the revenue. The media will never cover good news about Islam because there is no advertising money generated by good news.
It is up to Muslims, reaching out to one non-Muslim at a time to change the perceptions created by sensationalized, negative media coverage. Replacing negative media images and thoughts about Islam in the minds of non-Muslims will not be easy but this is how the change must happen, on a personal level, one person to another, one person at a time.
It is The Faithful, stressing the positive that will, over time, dispel the pretenders who claim the faith for monetary and political agendas that have nothing to do with faith in Allah.
It is The Faithful, stressing the positive that will, over time, replace negative impressions created by the media with real life positive example of Islam in the minds of non-Muslims. It is The Faithful, stressing the positive that will, over time, win over even the media, as there will be so many visible, positive role models of Islam all around them that they will be impossible to ignore.
That which is negative can only be overcome by that which is positive. The darkness of Ignorance can only be overcome by the light of knowledge. Change cannot come in isolation. Nothing can move people more than other people. Join with other Muslims in this quest. Be the change.
In True Faith,
The Prophet of Life
