Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


Last night, July 15-16, 2016. There was an attempted coup d’é·tat in Turkey.

Thank God Almighty that evil and wicked coup appears to have failed, leaving behind, at the time of writing, a debris of nearly 1000 dead and 2000 wounded.

Everyone, everywhere, I am sure, watched on every TV and Social Media channel as the Coup played out.

The question is how do we react?

In words, in gestures, in actions, in feelings and emotions — or in whatever other legal, civilized, noble, normal way possible?

This will be the crucible — the true test — of our Deen as well as of our Iman as well as of our membership in the civilized human race: Western or Eastern.

That means our reaction to the events unfolding in Turkey in full public glare — on TV and on every other media portal — will be the true measure not only of our Iman and of our Islam, but also of our basic humanity, of our core moral fiber, of our religious and humanistic conscience, and of our civilized human conduct in general: Western or Eastern.

Does anyone think some Muslims somewhere, maybe, should be doing a Khatm of Qur’an for Turkey — and making Du’a for Turkey; and for its democratically elected government of President Erdogan and others; and for its brave and free people who faced bullets with bare chests and took on mutineer military tanks with empty hands — and made them turn back?

Let us look at it this way — those of us (in the West and in all other parts of the world) who value and cherish freedom, democracy, Islam, God, morality, human decency, and common compassion and “charity” (to use a Biblical expression) in this world?

God forbid, if our own child, or wife, or husband, or parent, or brother, or sister, or friend, or someone else of that kind, were involved in a serious car accident last night, and we watched it all on live television in real time, is this how we will react?

That should tell us, and that should give us, a true measure of who we are — as individuals; as a people; and as members of civilized societies in the West and around the world.

END
