Online Religious Intolerance Experiences

November 5, 2010

Have you had one?

I have been a victim of online religious intolerance in more than one occasion. Since then, I have reduced my interaction with the world on the Web, especially on Websites where one can have and share dialogues with people of other faiths and backgrounds. One of those incidents that had nearly got me into a state of complete depression was a conversation on a blog owned by an American Islamophobe called Daniel Pipes, who thinks that all Muslims are brown.

Racial Profiling in America

The Islamophobes on his blog did not believe that I was a Muslim woman who enjoys her life and is proud to follow Islam. They addressed me as a woman who is smothered by Sharia and they accused me of lying when I wrote that I am a young woman who finished her higher studies and that I got a job. They could not believe that a Muslim woman can choose to study and work. More than that was said and accusations against me and Islam were more appreciated than the facts that I presented to them. It was useless to argue. It continued for days and my mental state was getting worse. Later I decided to leave the online world.

But, my love for my religion and my sense for duty to protect it grew and I believed that the efforts of a few can do a great change. No matter what happens, I will use this blog as a window for the rest of the world so people with open minds can settle down and ponder.

Blindness is an enemy to mankind. Let their be light in our lives.

When People Lose Humanity for Fun

October 22, 2010

I do not know what the owners were thinking when they put pictures of people they see ugly for voting on their Website. Do not they know those are people with feelings? Have not come across their minds that maybe some of them would see the Webpage and would find their picture labeled as “ugly”?

Pictures of Ugly People whether Ugly Men or Ugly Women are for entertainment purposes only.

How low a human can be than this?

Regarding 9/11 & Eid Al-Fitr Coincidence

August 31, 2010

Ibnat al-Hidayah has cleared everything up regarding Eid Al-Fitr which is a festival celebrated to break the 30-day fast during Ramadan, and she also clarified the misconceptions held by some in that we build Masjids only on holy sites.

Of course, I am not excited that Eid Al-Fitr coincides with the 9/11 anniversary this year. And, I really do see the importance of expanding one’s knowledge regarding others’ faith at such a time.

I only have one thing to say regarding this matter:

Al-Qaeda, damn on you.

These are daily shocking news.

Warning: Not so good reads. May get you depressed.

Spending Time Attacking Muslims

August 22, 2010

There are waves of blogs and Websites, as well as forums, dedicated to attacking Islam and its followers. I do not like to search for them, I mean I am not of that type who searches for the hate speech to feel the pity. I, sometimes, do stumble upon some when surfing the Internet.

And what I try to not to read, but I end up reading, is simply very heinous to the mind.

I just have understood the easiness of the principle of attack. It seems that attack is easier than defense, or to the matter it is preferable to searching for the truth.

What a waste of their time.

What are They Afraid of?

August 21, 2010

Open Google and read the blogs.

Have you noticed that anything related somehow to Islam always has to come on the first page?

Of course, they are not always good reads.

What are they writing about?

About their fear? Fear of what? Fear of Muslims walking around, or fear of Muslims multiplying in number?

Are their fears real? Must they be afraid?

Am I a beast in disguise?

I just keep on wondering …

A Difficult Time for Muslims

August 18, 2010

There are so much things I want to write about right now, but I do not know where to start and what to say.

I am very sad. Although I am an ordinary Muslim woman living a happy normal life, I still feel sad. I am feeling sad for what is happening in this world. I have not thought in my childhood that one day I will be hated just because I am Muslim.

Being a Muslim, I am shocked to read about what non-Muslims think, or rather, believe about us and about Islam. Just reading what they have in mind makes you think they are living in isolation, or more correctly they are living in their own world. I do not know. How do they learn about us? Where do they get their information? Are they really researching about Islam, or are they just depending on the propaganda in the media to get their information about other people?

To my dismay, some still attack Muslims when the latter present them with the truth and offer correct information about Islam. Are we speaking in a vacuum? Why not listen to the Muslims? Yes. There are bad Muslims, but what do other Muslims have to do with those evildoers?

Evildoers, of every religious, political, and racial background, have been known since the beginning of humanity. Only Muslims, today, are all portrayed as evil!

Muslims are facing hate and racism worldwide, even on the Internet. You wake up in the morning with a happy face, open the laptop, check the news, and then you wear a sad face, close the laptop and stare into the space.

What have I done to be hated?

All Humans are Weak

August 17, 2010

Even if we are different in color, we are still humans. And all humans are weak. No one is superior to others because of their color.

We cannot walk on gravel without wearing shoes, can we?

Allah says in the Holy Quran:

Allah would make the burden light for you, for man was created weak. (28)

Quran 4:28

And no one is better than the other except those who are good in their faith. Allah says in the Holy Quran:

O mankind! Lo! We have created you male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware. (13)

Quran 49:13

Love each other!

Do Not Laugh at Others

August 14, 2010

It is not permissible for a believer to laugh at another person because of their ethnicity, name, faith, racial backgrounds, wealth status, … etc. Allay says in the Holy Quran:

O ye who believe! Let not a folk deride a folk who may be better than they (are), not let women (deride) women who may be better than they are; neither defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. Bad is the name of lewdness after faith. And whoso turneth not in repentance, such are evil-doers. (11)

Quran 49:11

Laughing at a person because of their names or ethnicity implies racism. A person who has a tiny bit of arrogance in his heart is not a true believer. Allah says in the Holy Quran:

Turn not thy cheek in scorn toward folk, nor walk with pertness in the land. Lo! Allah loveth not each braggart boaster. (18)

Quran 31:18

Those who insult others because of their color or ethnic backgrounds are insulting the Creator. Such people should be advised to stop, and if they do not you must not be friends with them.

The View of “Saudi Woman” on Niqab Ban

July 30, 2010

The rebellious Saudi female blogger, Saudi Woman, has applauded the ban of Niqab in France. While some of her reasoning I agree with, I still am feeling sorry for how inconsiderate she is for her Niqabi sisters.

Saudi Woman wrote that:

When I read that the ban has gone through the French parliament with an overwhelming majority, I was unexpectedly ecstatic about it. I don’t live in France and I don’t even to plan to visit anytime soon and yet it made me happy that women there don’t have a choice.

You can sense hate by just reading her happy remarks. Even if she is a Saudi woman and that she hates wearing the Niqab, she does not have the right to stand and call for the ban of Niqab even for those women who chose to wear it. (more…)
