Those who fight Allah's Deen. Nothing new about it at all. This is how it was and this is how it will be.
We have to do what we have to do in terms of communication and outreach, as best as we can, and that is that.
And we have to do it with all the love in our heart and with all the niceness and sweetness in our demeanor.
This world is not our world. Nor are these people our people, in the sense we did not make them and we do not own them.
And as a result, they owe us absolutely nothing. Not even to be nice to us when we speak to them.
And this Deen is not our Deen. It descended from Allah full and complete in every single detail.
Therefore, these are Allah's people, dealing with Allah's Deen, in Allah's world, each in his or her own way.
They have every right to deal with it the way they want. It is to give them that right that Islam came into this world. Poor people, they did not have that right before Islam.
Our job is not only to tell them about Allah and his Deen, but also to protect their right to reject what we tell them should they so choose.
Our job is to do what we can, the best way we can, telling the whole world about Allah and his Deen, and move on -- doing it till the last breath of our life, making every effort to do it in the best and nicest possible manner.
That is Islam. And that is what is required of each and everyone of us.
