Islam is the religion of Allah It is the right faith.
Muslims believe that Allah is One, without a wife or a son, as He doesn’t need any.
Muslims exceed a billion people in number.
Islam has given the full freedom to all people to believe or not to believe.
However, it is the duty of enlightened Muslims to promote their religion
and give the non-Muslims a true and honest idea about their faith. Recently,
there has been no less important duty, Muslims are requested to withstand,
tolerate and endure the insults and misunderstandings and even the prejudice
of some non-Muslims.
This is simply because the religion of Islam is the religion of tolerance,
and Islam itself asks Muslims to do so.
Also, Muslims know very well that they have been guided to the right faith and the right way.
Here also rises a very important question.
Should Muslims focus on persuading more non- Muslims to embrace Islam,
or rather focus on improving the faith and the status of Muslims themselves?
It is very clear that Muslims mainly live in unfavourable conditions,
circumstances and countries.
The majority of immigrants and desettled people in the world are Muslims.
also The majority of poor people are Muslims.
The majority of war victims are Muslims.
So the image of Muslims and Islam don’t encourage the others to embrace Islam
because Muslims don’t reflect a very good image about their religion, civilization
and even their contemporary lifestyle.
So it is a matter of great importance for Muslims to achieve a considerable degree
of progress in their lives and make a greater contribution to the human twenty-first century civilization.
Then, they can call others to embrace their marvellous religion of Islam
