Tell Them We Are Patriots [Quote – 532]

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

(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur'an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --
And which One Does Not?)

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


If people ask you who we are, tell them we are Patriots – with the capital letter “P.”

If they ask you what do you mean tell them we are loyal and devoted to every square inch of land on this earth: every country; every continent; every place everywhere.

And if they ask you what we do, tell them we love everybody.

Tell them love is our job; tell them love is our mission in life; and tell them love is our modus operandi – meaning that is how we operate in this world.

That is how we do things: love.

And if they ask you how is that possible for anyone to love everyone, and in effect hate no one, tell them to roll back history and look at the life of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, who is our Guide and our Role Model.

Tell them how he loved all and hated no one. Even though so many people, who had unreservedly loved him only days ago, had now come to hate him fiercely, with some of them even wanting to kill him.  

All this, not for anything bad he did, mind you, but purely on account of the message of “No God but God!” that he preached and would not stop preaching even when they begged him to do so.

Tell all those who ask about us that we are nothing but an infinitesimally faint reflection of that most glorious and most perfect human life on earth: Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.

Tell them that we are merely a most distant shadow of a pure and shadowless light on earth.

END
